WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 7, 18(50.
At n rccont estate solo nonr Tumbling Shoals in
this DiBtrict, a tract of land containing ?00 acroB
brought S1915; corn ?old for 83 couts to $1 por

FnnEDiiAN KnUD_Early on Friday morning
Mesar?. T. Laniar ?Stark and Trank Fielding, (who
wore returning from a fox cliaso, on Stark'B farm),
discovered ii freediiian crossing ono of tbo fields,
with a bag on his head. Mr. Stark, thinking that
au witB not right. Jiailed liini. and asked whatlio
bad in his bug. IJo replied that ho had cora, and
was going to town with it. Mr. Stark then charged
bim with Btonling tho corn from Mr. Davis, who
Uves in tho vicinity^ and asked bim to go hack to
Mr. Davis' with bim, which ho refused to do.
Stark then Btiid ho should go and provo himsolf
clear. Stark was on borsoback. Tho decoased
took bold of bim and triod to pull him off his
horse Baying, "You G-d d-d rebol, I've got you."
Tho deceased alill bold to him. Finding that bo
could not reloaso himself, Stai-k drew his pistol and
fired on tho nogro, who still clung to bim. Stark
attempted to reloaso himself, but finding that ho
could not do BO, llrod again, tho ball striking his
antagonist, who ran off, but was found doad in tbo
woods, two hours afterward, about four hundred
yard? from wbero tbo affair occurred. Soon after
tbo occurronco, Mr. S. promptly delivered himself
up to tho proper authorities.
An inquest was bold by Coroner "Walker, and,
after a thorough investigation, the jury rendored
tho following verdict : That Stark Sims, a fireod
man, came to his doath, on tho 2d day or Novem
ber, 18?6, from tho offoctB of a ball fired from a
pistol in the hands of T. Lamar Stark, iu dofenco
of bia lifo_Columbia Phtvnix.
Wo regret to announce n hoavy loss sustained by
Mr. C. '1. HoBkoll, of our district, in tbo burning
of his barn and adjacent buildings, containing 1200
buabclt? of corn and other produce, besides 2G bales
of cotton. Tho uro was tue work of an incendiary.
Tbroo ncgrooa have been arrested and lodged m
jail, against whom tho circumstantial evidence is
vorv strong. Wo trust that tho guilty parties will
bo brought to apoody punishment.
At tho estate sale of Mr. Robt. Elba, deceased,
cotton sold at 8 conta nor pound in tho seed; corn
$1 90 per bushel; tho lane! at from $8 to $15 per
aero, on a credit of twelve months.-Ibid.
Wo loam with rogrot that Mr. C. T. IlaskoU, of
this District, sustained a hoavy loss on Sunday
night last, 28th instant, in tho burning of bia barn,
containing a largo amount of corn and other pro
duce. Tho uro occurred at his plantation on Littlo
River. At a time hko tho present this is a serious
misfortune. We understand that thrco negro
mon, who havo been in tho employ of Mr. Haskcll,
havo confessed thoir guilt in firing tbo barn, and
arc now confined in jail at this place.
[Abbeville Banner, October 31.
Four capital convictions havo occurred in tho
Greenvillo Court. A freed woman named Phillis
and her daughter Carolino wero found guilty of
murdering their husband and fa thor. It was a
Elain caso of guilt, and they woro sontoncod to bo

Two negroes, for burglary, wcro sentenced to bo
hung on the samo day.
Another, for larceny, was sent to tho penitentia

COST OP WAH IV THE EIGHTEENTH
AND NINETEENTH CENTURIES.
Tho Pall MaU Gazette has the following obser
An exhaustivo comparison of tho coat of war
now and formerly woola bo a most instructive and
a somewhat appalling document. It would bo
impossible to draw out such a contrast with coni
?ile le. accuracy, but it might bo done approxiinato
y. The cxponaivenoss of war to a country com
prises many items; the size of armies and navies;
tho cost of transport: tho price of arms and am
munition: the slaughter directly or .indirectly
caused ; tlio extent and complication of the fortifi
cations constructed and destroyed; and tho wealth
and civilization of the district which is tho seat of
war. Somo of thcao can bo ascertained or esti
mated; others ?an only be guessed at. Thus tho
aiogo and destruction of a fortress like Sebastopol
is incomparably more costly to both parties than
the siego of a fortress like Namur. A campaign
in England, or in the heart of Franco or Germany,
aa compared with a campaign carried on in RuBsia,
in Poland, or oven in Spain, would bo costber be
yond all mouture of comparison, both in reforenco
to the amount of property destroyed, and tho dol?
cate and complex procesaos of civilized and indus
trial lifo suspended or deranged. In wild and
thinly peopled hmas war ranv oost nothing but
gunpowder and lifo: in rich and populous countries
far advanced in all the luxurious appliances of
modern existence its oxponso becomos actually in
A few facts may, however, bo notod down by
which something, not of an estimate, bat of an
idea, may be Arrived at as to tho vastly increased
coBt of warfaro now and in tho days of our fathers
and grandfathers. One point of comparison is
that tho armies we fight with are enormously
greater than they UHOII to be. This is owing in
part to our improved facilities for tho transport
of troops, materials and tho commissariat. Rail
ways do now, and do far moro rapidly and cheap
ly, what bullocks and wagons did for Frederick
the Great and tho Duko of Wellington. In tho
campaigns of tho last century, in all tho chief
battles of tbo Sovon Yeara' War, tho Prussians
never had moro than aevonty thousand mon in
the field, and very rarely half that number. lu
only two or three casos aid tho aggrogato of the
combatants on both sides reach one hundred thou
nand. Even in the early battles of Napoleon tho
forces engaged wero what would now bo consid
ered amah. Boforo Wugraiu ho nover had moro
than ono hundred thousand men in tho field, and
seldom noarly as many. At Marengo ho had not
thirty thousand. It was not till the day of his
downfall approached that ho began to deal with
corps d'arm?e as numorous and colossal as those
with which the wars of our days are making UB
familiar. At Borodino and Dresden a quarter of a
million were on?agod, and at Loip&io, if figures can
be trusted, not Far from half a million. The British
forco with which our groat Duko won tbo Penin
sular victories never once, wo beliovo-(It least,
not moro than once-reached fifty thousand, and
his entire army, oven reckoning Spaniards and
Portuguese, seldom much exceeded that number.
At tho crowning victory of Waterloo tho forces
on both 'don wove under ono hundred and forty
tbouaai a, and of theso not ono-third were English.
Comparo theso armies with tho throo hundred
thousand who fought at Solferino, tho four hun
dred and twenty thoimnnd at Sadowa, and tho
multitudes, often exceeding a minrtor of a million,
with which tho Americans triod tho terri bl o issues
of thoir civil controversy, and tho advanco mado
in recent timos, if it bo an advanco, will bo obvi
ous at onco.
It is some comfort to know that tho slaughter in
our days, in spite of our mightier artillery and our
armes de precision, ?B not proportioned to the num
feor engaged. Why this should bo BO WO aro not
prepared te say, and we aro aware that the popu
lar impression is a different ono, but wo beliovo
tbo facte would be found to boar ns out. In Fred
crick's wars tho proportion of killed and wounded
on both sides to tho forces in tho field ranged from
ono-sixth to one-tenth, and at tbo peculiar battlo
of Zorimdorf far exceeded this ratio. In Napo
leon's campaigns it was still higher, often nvoragmg
a fifth; while tit Eylau ond Borodino it ia said to
havo reached a third. In somo of thoso cases,
orhaps, the "mining" may have been included,
nt not usually. Alison's calculation is that from
1792 to 181."> thrco millions of French soldiers por
ishod in tho field or in tho hospital, and at least an
ctjual numhor out of tho ranks of thoir antago
nists. Tho proportion of Iho slain and disablad in
tbo American battles is not known with any accu
racy, but probably no ono would placo it "liighor
than ono-tenth; whilo in the Italian battles of 1859
it is estimated at scarcely moro than a twelfth, and
at Sadowa abont n fifteenth. Still, though tho
proportion is ICSB than it UBod to bo, tho positivo
number who fall is ovon greater, and tho coBt in
life therefore heavier.
If we compare the coat of the anns and artillery
now in uBo, and their suitable ammunition, with
the ruder and cheaper weapons which contented
na in tho loot war, eomo of tho figures aro very
startling. Tho old calculation for a man-of-war
naed to bo roughly ?1000 per gun: a throe-decker
eos.. ImstttOtb, JtlOfy.O'., cr li A Mi-, A.ii*t?race
iron-plated vreael cannot, WA uol.cvu. bo complet
ed tinder half a million, and somo of our experi
mental ?hipn are uudevatocd to havo coat nearly
twico that sum. A Minio or an Enflold rifle, with
ita cartridgo, is nearly fivo timos as oxponBivo as
tlio old Brown Bess. Even boforo conversion into
a brcoch-loador, an Enfield (completo) coats up
wards of ?5. Wo doubt if the old musket,
whon manufactured wholesale, cost much above
?1. Tho rifled twolvo-poundcr now in favor
for fiold batteries coata ?90, and oach
Bholl it firos 4B. The brass nino-noundor,
which it superseded, cost ?80, and its sholl 3a. But
a? thiu would bo worth as old metal ?50, while tho
iron gun would scarcely Bell for anything, tho truo
comparativo figures would bo ?90 againat ?30.
Lnstly, the sixty-oight poundor, formerly in uso
for fortifications and shoro batteries, coBt ?100, its
carriago and elido anotbor ?100, mid ita Bhot 4B.
Tho Armstrong uino-ineh twelve-ton gun, with
which wo should now arm our fortR, coste ono
th on va ml two hundred pounds, and ita iron car
riage and slido thrco hundred pounds moro; while
tho ?Icol BIIOIIH it fires cost, aa wo stated a few
wcoks sinco, nine pounds each. Tho Talliaor shell,
which will probably supor?cdo theso, can bo niado
for forty-five shillings. If the moro costly missilo
bo used, ovory shot wo fire in tho next war from
our great embrasures will bo worth a teu-pound
