Result of tle Melton-Monlgomery Affir
Killing of Capt. J. D. Caldwell.
Ono of the most shocking homicides
vhich has ever occurred in this city
resulted yesterday from the fond which
has for some time existed between
Judge S. V. Melton and Mr. C. V.
Montgomery. And tbo victim was
neitbor of the parties abovo named,
Capt. Jno. D. Caldwell, who in the
progress of the political quarrel. had
espoused the cause of Judge MIrthon,
and was with him at the timo of his
death. It is well known to the roaders
of the Carolinian, that Judge Melton
was reported to bave charged upon
1r. Montgomery a prominent agency
in the isbo1o of alleged fraudulent pay
certificates in the Senate during his
pro tempore Presidency of that body.
Jaast'Thursday, Mr. Montgomery in
a card published over his signature
In the Phwaix, denounced Judge
Melton as a "liar, a poltroon and a
coward." Judge Mlelton was then
absent, and Mr. Caldwell a warm
personal friend of Judge Molton, was
uctive in communicating the result to
hint, and was regarded as his friend
and advisor in the affair. Mr. George
Tupper was regarded as occupying
the same relation to Mr. Alontgomery.
It is said thut the principals in this
affatir, passed each other on the street
yeaterday, and as no collision ensued
in the early part of the day, it was
not regarded as imminent.
Between 4 and 5 o'clock yesterday,
all the parties seeti to have been at
the same time at Pollock's Exchange,
oil Main street, djudge Melton, in
company with Mr. Caldwell and
Major James iM. blorgan, at, dinner in
tl o upper part of the building, and
Mlr. C. W. AMontgomery and Nlr.
George Tupper in the dining room on
the first door in rear of the bar, in
which were several other gentlemen
at the timo of the fatal occurt ence.
Judge Mlelton and his friends having
finished d inner, ca ie down stairs, and,
passing the roott in which the other
party were, o'penied the door looked in,
immediately withdrawing and clositg
the door. In a very short timo after,
he again entered the room followed
by Captain Caldwell andl Maj.ar lor
gan, and commenced an assault upon
Montgomery who was seated at the
table. During the fight between these
two, the pistil shots woto fired.
Richard Washington testified before
the Coroner that tle pistol ws4 in the
hands of Captain Tupper. One ball
took effect upon Captain Caldwell,
passing through the heart and pro.
ducing death instantly. At-1u1
L01z LU% un'us Eu tile eft shoulder
of Major James NI. Miorgan, inflicting
a painful but not dangerous wound.
All the parties to the affatr ware
arrested by 0-o l'olico at once, and
Coroner Coleman impannelled a Jury
of Inquest, whten t wo witnesses were
examined, Mr. Frank Elmnore and
Washington, the colored waiter, and
the above statements as to the killing
The post anorkm examination by
flrs. Tally and Datrby showed that
the ball had passed directly through
the heart, producitng instant death,
and that the (deceased had several
contused wounds Ott the head as
though from blowsgivon before death.
The inq~uest was atijourned until ten
o'clock this morning and the body of
Captain Cald well was removed to hmi
residence on Plain street, and will be
interred thtis afternoon.
Capt. John D. Caldwell, whose
death occurred under circumnstances
just narrated, was held in high estetm
by a large number of friends in this
commnunity. llis death is generally
latmented, and excites great sy tmpathy.
Of gone rena impulses, popular mtan
nors, and a manly disposition, lhe

South Carolina Politics.
A despatch to the New York Trib.
ine, dated Washington, September 16,
Senator Sawyer came here in a
great hurry, to-day, to prevent, if
possible, the withdrawal of Federal
troopa from Chester County, which
was contemplated by the War De.
partment, and for which an order was
ibout to be issued, upon representa
tions made for political effect by the
faotions of the Grant party known as
the "Rogulars." Sawyer, al-o for
polieal purposes, wanted these Feder.
atl troops retained, and as Chester is
one of the leading Counties latoly
placed under martial law' by the
Preimident, it required very littlo urg
ing by Sawyer to carry his point.
The Senator is quite sanguino of the
success of the Bolte-' ticket in the
ensuing State election in South
Carolina, and claims that about two.
thirds of the colored vote will bo Cabt
for that ticket.

Feforni With a Vongeance.
We have already auuuneed ti c
result of the Convention, called by
the leputlican party of thi.i County
to nomiuate County oleers and mem.
bars of the Iegiblaturo, und now pro
pose to exanine the ticket put for.
waid by them, and see ahether or
not the cry for Refurn has been fully
met, and the promises of the Republi.
cans themselves honestly fultilled.
So far as wA livo botn ,ia #,% i ..
from the community at large, the
nominations fur Court House officials,
that is, Clerk of the Court, Sheriff,
and Judge of Probate, are generally
satisfaiotory, though we have heard of
some opposition to the nominee for
Sheriff. To what extent this opposi
tion goes, we are yet nnable to say.
In regard to the legislative part of
the ticket, candor compels us to say
that we regard it in no wise any im.
provemnent on the represenitat ion of
this County in the last Legislature,
and in a close comparison, we thinak it
a little worse. In thus giving ex
pression to our own views we believe
we utter the sentiments of a large
number of our colored friends, many
of whomi have beau heard to say that
t hey cannot conscienciously endoir e
the niominees for the Legislatnre, and
that unless other nominations are
mada, they will not vote at all.
We do not claim the right to criti
cize, in a personal sense, those candi
dtates for legislative honors, but inas
much as they are before the public, it
iour provinece to speak in behalf of
the public, and as ntear as we can,
present the views of the public in this
particular. Tasken as a wvhole, we do
not look upon them as in ainy respeet

are seeking. l'oeibl y one only mi y

One of the nio taiarzmiing igns of
'he timecs, and a circunhstance to whtehc
may he uttributed most oif the social
and politionl evils thit exist in our.I
)untry and State, is the wide-spread r(
orruption which an observer cannot a
ail to discover, on whatever eide he b
nay chanoe to look. There is a spirit
talking boldly throughout our land, b
eeking to demoralize every depart. y<
uent of life. Its vio ories are dis- ti
iernible everywhere, in high places t<
is well as low, amongst rich cnd poor, d
tnd inl the ranks of all political par- w
ics. The woes and misfortunes lefo w
jehind it in its triiumphal march, are el
mrions to contemplate. The actual It
xtent of its influence is too lightly
atiuated, acd not adequastely real. [
zed. But of its existenceo there can
be no doubt. You will fiod it in the
.ourts of jmitice, manifested in the
bribery of julge antd jury by a dcsper
te prisoner, in vr.ler to s ie himselfr
from the punishment met itd liv hi:; I
crime. You will Gnd it in the L.JIS of'
legialation, whlere monied ifluenc., is
stronger than ay other, and where
modern law mAeors demand extral
consideration for setvic.s rendered
their country and their constituency.
You will find it alo in the manipula- I
tion of political enwpaignn , as a p.ron.i
nent feature, wh erein tle rod tA
positions of hnotaur and emolumenst,
must needs be strewn with "1glittering
gold,'' ore the mitani of ambitiion can
reaeh the coveted Lei.;ht. In ev
day life we see n.anifestat ions of this
spirit of oorruptior, in onlia ry Lii

facilitatihg the degeneration of the

The Star says : It is stated that the
President has refused to pardon cer
tain Ku Klux prisoners in the Albany
penitentiary who had been reeom
men.cded for clemency, beoause of a pro
test cominh from the district where the
critimmals wore convicted, from those
who would be most endangered by the
release. The oharaetor of most of
the convicts is very bad. Some of
them are ignorant, lawless, desperate
men, who, it is believed, would not
hesitate to wreak their vengeance
upon all who testified against them.
