AGENTS FOR THE INTELLIGENCER.
Walkes, Evans 4 Cogswell, Charleston, S. C.
John T.-Sloan, jr., Columbia, S. C.

Our New Dress.
In order to keep pace with the spirit of pro?
gress and improvement everywhere visible, the
proprietors of the Intelligencer have procured
a new outfit of type, and to-day greet their pat?
rons with Smiling face and comely exterior.
Although considerably improved in outward
appearance, all has not yet been accomplished
that is intended to place the Intelligencer in the
front rank of weekly newspapem.. Other means
will be resorted to for the advancement of its
interests-,, and! it can: safely be-promised that the
watchword of the- proprietors will be upward
To.the-generous and liberal patronage of the
public-may be attributed the growing strength
and prosperity of this journal, and for the
steady and increasing confidence exhibited to?
wards the present proprietors,, every effort will
be made to show a due appreciation of the good
will and friendly regard of their feHow-citizens.
The unusual outlay requisite to procure the
new material upon which the paper is now
printed, renders it necessary that those indebted
to this office shonld make prompt and speedy
settlements. Those in arrears for subscription
are earnestly invited to discharge their obliga?
tions without delay, and all amounts due for
advertising and job work during the past year
must be settled at once. In this, as in other
things, "a word to the wise is sufficient."
Bbief Mention*.?A thrilling story is pub?
lished on our first page to-day, copied from the
March number of the Old Guard. The scene
is laid in Laurens District, and the events nar?
rated are said to have occurred twenty years
The legal fraternity will find some interest in
the decisions reported from the Supreme Court
of this State, which have been furnished to the
Daily Bepublican, and are published in this is?
sue of our paper.
Until further notice, we will not receive sub?
scribers for Dcmoresft Magazine? as several re?
mittances to that publication have not been ac?
Our facetious and poetical friend, the bache?
lor editor of the Abbeville Brest and Banner, is
referred to Webster's Unabridged for a defini?
tion of the word " ominous."
Improvements are going on at every hand,
and the appearance of our town is being en?
hanced by several new buildings. New fencing
and fresh painting are contributing no little to
the general result, and carpenters and painters
are kept busy.
" All persons who have signed the paper pro?
posing to organize a Fire Engine Company in
tdiis town are requested to meet in the Court
* House-to-night (Thursday) at & o'clock.
Disastrous Fire.?A fire broke out in the
residence of Capt. John W. Daniels, on Main
street, near the public square,, on Thursday af?
ternoon last, at 4 o'clock. The alarm brought
together a large number of citizens in the short?
est time, and every exertion was at once put
forth to save the contents of the burning build?
ing, as it was apparent that efforts to extinguish
the flames were useless. The fire progressed
rapidly, and it was with great difficulty that
even a portion of the furniture was saved. It
was a large two-story frame building, formerly
? used as a hotel, and the danger to other build?
ings was imminent Hence, the efforts of the
crowd were immediately directed to the protec?
tion of the residences of Mr. Henry Garrison
and John Wilsos, Esq., oo the opposite side
of Main street, and we are rejoiced to state that
the almost superhuman exertions- o? active and
brave men accomplished this object, and' in all
probability saved a goodly portion of the town.
The residence of Mr. Samuel Crawford, a
frame building, nearly adjoining Capt. Dan?
iels' house, was not so fortunate, however, and
we regret to chronicle its entire destruction al?
so. A small building, on the corner of the
Benson lot, occupied by Mr. Thos. Wildman
a? a Marble establishment, was likewise entire?
ly consumed. The wind was exceedingly high
at times during the fire, and changed about in
different directions. Under the circumstances,
without a fire organization, it seems really won?
derful how the progress of the devouring ele?
ment} was so speedily checked.
The origin of the fire was entirely accidental,
and the inmates of Capt. Daniels' residence
were not apprised of it until informed by a
colored man who was passing along the street
The loss may be set down as follows: Capt.
Daniels' residence and furniture, $750.00; in?
sured for $400. Mr. Crawford's residence,
$300.00, on which there was no insurance. The
house occupied by Mr. Wildman, and belong?
ing to Mr. J. B. Earle, $150.00. We are in?
formed that Mr. Crawford saved nearly eve?
rything, except the house, while Mr. Wildman
aecured his Marble without any considerable
damage. Other parties met with losses from
the eestfusion incident to the removal of their
furniture during such a scene of excitement,
but only h> a. few instances from theft, which is
common on? like occasions.
Another Firr?On Sunday evening last,
about dark, the alarm- of fixe- again rung out,
and proceeding in the direction indicated, we
found the stable of Mr. J. B. Clark, on Mc
Duffie street, being rapidly consumed by the
flames. Prompt measures of precaution were
adopted to prevent adjacent buildings from ig?
niting, and in a short time the fire was subdued
to an extent that afforded relief to those in
?pfQhable danger. It is not known how this fire
originated, Rnd there are numerous speculations
on the- subject We are not inclined to think it
the wouk of an incendiary, after careful inqui?
ry, although this opinion n?y be erroneous
The loss sustained by Mrv Clark is Inconsider?
Daily Southern Guardian.?We are grat?
ified to state that this sterling newspaper is
now printed with new type, and presents a very
handsome appearance. The subscription price
has been reduced to six dollars per annum, or
three dollars for six months. The tri-weekly
issue of the GuanKan is only $4 a year. Eve?
ry number contains a lively and entertaining
resume of current news, with spicy editorials
and latest telegrams. Subscriptions received at
Result of the Press Conference.
The Conference of the anti-Radical press
of this State was held, as agreed upon, in Co?
lumbia on Wednesday, I6th instant. From all
we can gather, there was unanimity and accord
. among the gentlemen present, and their action
goes forth to the people with united endorse?
ment. The result of the Conference was the
introduction of the resolutions hereunto an?
nexed, which were adopted unanimously. As
we were unable to be present, and do not know
the controlling reason upon which was based
the action of the Conference, we deem it im?
proper to criticise its recommendations. We
may be permitted to state, however, that our
views do not concur in the policy suggested to
the people of holding a State Convention as
early as the 15th of June, " for the purpose of
nominating a State lickst" The time sugges?
ted is too soon, in our judgment, and it may be
that the end in view?organizing a ticket for
State officers?could wisely be dispensed with.
Under other circumstances, this feature of the
political situation would be discussed at length ;
but courtesy to oar brethren, and lack of infor?
mation as to the reasons by which they were
controlled, demand an exercise of restraint upon
our thoughts. As to the declarations made by
the Conference, giving full recognition to the
legal right of all citizens of the State to suf?
frage and office, this journal has been fully com?
mitted for the past eighteen months. The elec?
tion of Grant settled the question of suffrage
in this State, at least, and we have not been
disposed to revive dead issues at any time. On
these points, then, the action of the Conference
receives our hearty and unqualified approval.
Here are the resolutions:
1. Resolved, That this Conference recognizes
the legal right of all of the citizens of the State,
irrespective of color, to suffrage.
2. Resolved, That this Conference recognizes
the legal right of all of the citizens of the State,
irrespective of color or previous condition, to
office?subject alone to personal qualification
3. Resolved, That in the judgment of this
Conference, a convention of the people of the
State, opposed to Radicalism and in favor of
good and honest government, should be held in
the city of Columbia, at some convenient time,
for the purpose of nominating a State ticket,
which, while assuring equal and exact justice to
all, will afford some degree of security, prosper?
ity and good government.
4. Resolved, That this Conference respect?
fully suggests to the people of the State Wed
: nesdny, the 15th June, ensuing, as a suitable
time for holding said convention.
The Conduct of our Citizens.?It is
scarcely possible to award a just meed of praise
to those through whose heroic endeavors so
much property has been saved and great dis?
tress prevented, on the occasion of recent fires.
And it is equally impossible to determine
whose alacrity and good judgment proved most
beneficial. The daring conduct and intrepid
action of many persons are the theme of con?
versation in our community. But we would do
violence to our own feelings, and offend the
good sense of the white people, did the occa?
sion pass without a frank and cordial acknowl?
edgement of gratitude to the colored people for
their zeal and activity during the late fires.
Of course, their conduct on Thursday was more
noticeable, as the exigencies were far greater
than on Sunday night, but at both places we
observed their bearing, and can express the
highest encomiums upon their noble efforts in
behalf of the sufferers. We know that these
efforts are appreciated, and would have the
colored population to understand that this is
the sentiment of our own race.
Death of Judge Dawkins.?The Columbia
Phoenix learns from a private source that Hon.
; T. N. Dawkins, of Union, departed this life on
last Saturday night He had been to York,
and returned home sick. Judge Dawkins rep?
resented Union for many years in the Legisla
, turc, and was regarded as a man of excellent
! sense and fine attainments. He was afterwards
elected Judge, and discharged the duties of that
: office with ability and fidelity. When the new
order of things deprived him of the Judgeship, he
resumed the practice of the law, and we presume
that it was in the discharge of his duties as an
advocate that he fell sick whilst attending
Court at Yorkville. Thus has passed away a
distinguished Carolinian?one prominent in
Union and throughout the State, and a man
held in high consideration for his social virtues
and estimable qualities, both of head and heart.
Arrested.?On Sunday morning last, a man
by the name of Smith, attached to Stowe's
circus in the capacity of a driver, was arrested
at this place, charged with stealing a fine Pho?
tograph Album from the residence of Col. Sam.
Donnald, of Donnaldsville, on last Friday.
He was taken in custody at the instance of Mr.
Stowe, who had received the information, and
in a short time made his escape, but was after?
wards re-captured in the suburbs of town. He
is now boarding at McGukin's Hotel, with the
walls which he is entirely familiar, as we un?
derstand that he was tried and conrvicted! of lar?
ceny at this place only a few years ago. He
was immediately recognized as the same indi?
vidual upon his entrance. We are pleased to
state that the Album, containing family pic?
tures, was recovered.
State Press Association.?At the late Con?
ference of the Press in the city of Columbia, it
was determined that a permanent association
of its members in this State should be formed.
The following gentlemen were appointed a com?
mittee to report upon this subject to an adjourn?
ed meeting, to be held in Columbia on the 15th
of June next:, viz: C. P. Pellam, of the Co?
lumbia Guardian ; J. A. Selby, of the Colum?
bia Fluxnix; A. A. Gilbert, of the Sumter
Watchman ; J. A. Hoyt, of the Anderson In?
telligencer ; and E. C. McClure, of the Ches?
ter Reporter. It is needless to say that this ac?
tion concurs with the views expressed by this
journal, and that we believe it will redound to
the good of tie fraternity.
Robbery.?We have learned with regret
that our friend, Col. Di L. Donnald, of Wil
liamston, has recently met with a serious loss
by having $350.00 stolen from his store at that
place. Information has already reached him,
however, that will probably lead to the recove?
ry of a greater portion of the money.
Shiver's Popular Dry Goods House.?
The special and extraordinary announcement of
this widely known eafciblkbinent, recoganized
as the largest of its kind in Columbia, will be
found in our columns to-day. We direct atten?

him, but without effect. The escape will occa?
sion no surprise. Yerger has powerful friends
outside who would never have permitted his
execution. His punishment is great, notwith?
standing his escape. He gets away with his
life, but is an outcast and fugitive forever. .
-The Johnson Type Foundby.?We deem
it proper to state that our new type have been
procured from this old and reliable establish?
ment, through Messrs. Walker, Evans &
Cogswell, of Charleston, to whom we are in?
debted for many courtesies connected with the
purchase of this material. The Johnson Foun?
dry, in Philadelphia, was established about
seventy-five years ago, and has always been held
in high esteem by the craft, but at no time pos?
sessing greater facilities or conducted with more
regularity than at present, under the manage?
ment of MacKellar, Smiths & Jordan, the
proprietors. We tender thanks to these gentle?
men for a handsome Specimen Book, complete
in every respect.
Eighth Circuit.?This judicial circuit is
now composed of the counties of Anderson,
Oconee, Pickens, Greenville and Abbeville, as
our readers arc aware. For the information of
those having legal business in the last named
county, we will state that the Act of the Legis?
lature authorizing a transfer of Abbeville to
this Circuit shows that the Courts in Abbeville
arc to be held as follows: The Court of General
Sessions on the third Monday of February,
June and October, and the Court of Common
Pleas on the first Wednesday after the third
Monday in February, June and October.?
Therefore, the next regular term will begin on
the third Monday in June next, and will be
presided over by Judge Orr.
A Spicy Reply.?The New York Ledger, of
which Robert Bonner is the proprietor, re?
cently contained the following squib concerning
the A. R. Presbyterian, published at Due West,
and edited by Rev. J. L Bonner :
We religiously refuse to print advertisements
for pay in the Ledger, but we publish the fol?
"Wanted, 500 short, plain articles for the
Associate Reformed Presbyterian."
Would it not be as well for our friend and
namesake who publishes the Presbyterian to ad?
vertise for brains at once, and be done with it;
or else write the 500 himself?
To which our clerical friend at Due West
makes a spicy reply, as follows:
Does " our friend and namesake," of the
New York Ledger, mean to insinuate! We
suppose not, as he seems to admit that the edi?
tor of the A. R. Presbyterian could write the
articles himself which he wants. We accept
the compliment, bnt cannot undertake the la?
bor. If we had the money as " our friend "
has, we might do as he does, buy the necessary
articles for our paper. But as we have not the
money, we have to beg them. In this we do
not always succeed, however, any more than we
did when we asked our "namesake" of the
Ledger for a thousand dollars, to help us finish
up and furnish our Female College!
Death of Rev. Johit R. Pickett.?Our
community was saddened on the morning of the
15th, by the announcement that the Rev. John
R. Pickett had quietly passed away at daylight
of that morning. Though his demise was not
unlooked for, as he had been sinking gradually
since he returned here in January last, still we
could not cease to hug the hope that a reaction
might occur, and that he would still be spared
for years of happiness and usefulness. It is
consolatory to his friends to know that his death
bed was almost entirely free from physical suf?
fering. The calmness with which his uncloud?
ed intellect contemplated his approaching dis?
solution, was one of those sublime triumphs of
faith that places beyond a peradventure the
truth of revelation. This quiet contemplation
of death characterized him even before his end
was thought to be imminently near. In Janu?
ary last we met him on the street a few days af?
ter his arrival here, and expressed our great
pleasure in having him once more among us,
and our earnest hope that quiet and rest might
soon restore him to something of his wonted
vigor. Recognizing the feelings expressed by
us, he calmly replied, that " he would be no
better, that he had come to go to sleep among
us." His language was prophetic, for his pass?
ing away, we arc informed, was as quiet as an
The ministry of his own church or of any
other, contained no more zealous worker than
was Mr. Pickett. He was a bold and original
thinker, and was possessed of a bold and ori?
ginal expression tnat carried his thoughts home
to the hearts of his hearers. He was an orator
?made by nature and by his consuming zeal
in the cause he served. Though a thorough
scholar, he sought within himself for the wea?
pons with which he illustrated his power; he
did not allow his massive intellect to be curbed
or cribbed by the narrow rules of the schools.
To do his work to win sinners from the evils of
their ways, was the task to which all his great
powers were lent. This singleness of purpose
made him a powerful preacher. It will be
many years bclore the void his death makes can
I be filled.
It was his request that he might be buried at
Winnsboro', by the side of the Rev. Hilliard
Judge, by whom he was baptized in his infan
1 cy. This expressed wish was complied with,
aud on yesterday, after the impressive funeral
services of his church had been held by the
Rev. E. J. Mcynardie, his remains were placed
on the cars to be taken to Winnsboro' for inter?
ment. Mr. Pickett was born on the second day
of April, 1814, and was baptized by the Rev.
Hilliard Judge in 1817. He was licensed to
I preach at Gladden's Grove Camp Ground,
Sandy River Circuit, October 11th, 1834, and
was immediately sent into the itinerancy by his
! Presiding Elder, Rev, Bond*, English, in which
sphere of usefulness he continued until his

heart of our worthy friend. Such men will re?

her true interests in the present and future, as
they have illustrated the past by their valor
and devotion r
After the band had discoursed " Dixie," Mr.
Wm. E. Mikell responded to the toast. He
called attention to the present and future of the
State. He said that the past of the State was
all that gave her honor and reputation in the
history of the world, but the present is before
us, and out of it comes the future; that future
which we have it in our power to make equal
to the past. He believed that the time had
come when the honor of the State must be up?
held by other names than those of the past.
Let the dead past bury its dead. We have the
opportunity of showing to the world what un
conquered people can do to maintain the inde?
pendence achieved by our forefathers. We must
meet the questions of the day fairly. We must
recognize facts as they are. First, let us place
the ermine upon the shoulders of men who will
not be deterred by the popular clamor. We
must obtain leaders who are recommended by
their trust-worthiness, and not those who de?
pend solely upon their names. We have those
men among us. Let us choose them, and un?
der their leadership we will triumph. He ad?
vised that the white and colored citizens unite
for the common good, and he believed that
there was hope for the State, politically and
financially, and if united togetner, hand and
soul, we will yet win back our past prosperity.
Therefore, he repeated, "Let the dead past
bury the dead." Act in the living present,
heart within and God overhead.

Extraordinary Announcement?Read this
through Carefully and Profit by 1U
I DATING from the loth of the month, now pas^
we oS'er, as bcfore announced, some of the most
magnificent and attractive BARGAINS ever offer?
ed in DRY GOODS. The prices are alarmingly
low, and some* of our lady customers have express?
ed great regret at our selliug the Goods so cheap,
lest we break. We inaugurated these low prices
for goods in January here, with our French ME?
RINOS and PLAIDS, nt on-ee showing the people
that when we advertised cheap goods we meant
cheap goods; and wo intend following the cheap
goods policy right through the Summer, and we
say write it down as loud as pen and ink can write
it, that wc are offering bargains not to be met with
once in a natural life-timo.
We shall attend to orders with the same care as
if the panics ordering were present, and we ad?
vise all who see the advertisement, to order direct
from us or send for samples, which we shall take
pleasure in sending. In ordering, give colors and
prices, and leave the selection of the goods to us,
ard we guarantee satisfaction or take the goods
In advertising it 1ms never been the habit of
this section to assign real reasons for reduced
prices, but wc beg to deviate, and say that the j
following are our reasons :
1st. We are more or less interested in about
$100,000 worth of Dry Goods in this vicinity.
2d. The decline on Dry Goods is fearful to con?
3d. Wc are going to realize on ours.
4th. We want money, and do not want to bor?
row, and the only way to get it is to sell some?
If these reasons are not satisfactory, just oah
on us and we will give you solid proof of what
wo say. If you Bee any startlingly cheap goods
bought by your friend or neighbor, do not despair
of getting some of them, too, by reason of they
being sold out, but come right along and you will
find them, or some cheaper, as there are plenty
where these are from.
