The deccaaod was probably intoxicated and

inquest was held and a verdict rendered in ac?
cordance with thc facts.
THE SOMMERVILLE MURDER.-Goorgo Duffie,
tbe colored mon charged with the murder of
Uroouis at Summerville was brought to the
city yesterday and committed to jail. As the
indictment stands in tho name of tho United
States it is probable that he will bo tried by
the military. The post mortem examination of
the de?d body showed that the wounds were
inflicted on tho hoad by some sharp instrument
-it is believed a hatchet-which crushed the
bone, and that each of them were sufficient to
have caused deatb.

COTTON PRESSES.-Although the receipts of
cotton have fallen oft" considerably during the
past few days, tho demand for freights keeps
thc cotton presses busily employed in making
the bags more compact and preparing thom for
shipment. The presses of Messrs. Groning k
Coates, ou Hayne-street and East Bay, have
been working steadily during the whole season,
and the puffing of their engine* kept timo with
the choking of type in the NEWS office. Though
the business has fallen off to a great extent,
the demand is still sufficient to .koop both
presses in motion. The smaller press, on East
Bay, near Union Wharves, has ouly boen in
operation a short timo, but has been constantly
employed. This press was rebuilt f.ince the
war, and though somewhat smaller tl an others
in the city, has been found to be very service?
able during tho past few months when the rush
for freights was at its height.
CLEAR AS MUD.-The streets wero unpleas?
antly damp yesterday, and the soft mud which
carpeted the sidewalks caused the fair prome?
naders to bless the divinity that iutroduccd
short skirts and thick shoes. The few unfor?
tunates who had not conformed to the fashion
had their attention fully occupied in the diffi?
cult task of keeping their trains from the mud.
In the upper portion of King-street, where
paving stonos aro unknown, the mud was fear?
ful and formed a slimy bog that was almost
impassable. Shoes soon lost their brilliant
polish, and the cars were sought as an ark of
refuge which would pilot tho faint-hearted to
dry land. Few who gazed despondingly at
the miry slough thought that "dost it was and
unto dust it will return." But if the pres?
ent fine weather continues old Sol will soon
convince unbelievers that his strength has
not departed, and the dust will receive the
anathemas which are now so liberally bestow?
ed on the mud.
UNITED STATES CIRCUIT COURT.-Peter Pir

CHARLESTON FLOUR MILLS_The floor mills
of Messrs. Jno. Campsen k Co., in Market
street opposite State, have recently rccoived a
number of important improvements by which
the proprietors aro enabled to facilitate the
. grinding and delivery of ilour. The space al- !
lotted to the machinery is comparatively limit?
ed, but the arrangement is perfect, and each
part performs its separate function accurately.
The elevators, smut machine, coolers, and in?
deed every part of the machinery in the mill
is of the latest pattern. The engine, hopper,
and the heavier parts of the machinery aro all
on the lower floor, the second ?tory being de?
voted to the bolting, wheels, coolers, &c. in the
rear of the mill is a large storehouse where the
supplies of grain and hay, kc., are kept. Messrs.
Campsen & Co. have secured* the services of
Mr. Reid, au old and experienced miller, and
though tho mill has been in op?ration but a
few months, it has already proved to be a pay?
ing enterprise, and tho orders received keep
the employees constantly busy. The flour
nulls eat?bli8hed by Messrs. Campsen k Co.
are a proof that energy and activity must com?
pel s access, thou/,h business may be prostrat?

DISTURBANCE AT FOBT MOTTE-THE LEA
DI ABMS DEFYLNO MILITABY AND CIVIL L
-A report was prevalent in the city yoster
that a negro had been shot at Fort Mo
and that troops had beeu sent from Colun
to quell tho disturbance. ?The evening's ti
from Columbia brought tbe following parti
lars : On Thursday morning Mr. Diedi
Hano, who plants near Fort Motte, was
costed by Jeff. Davis, one of his former slai
who wished to purchaso a pair of shoes,

became very indignant at the refusal, t
commenced threatening Mr. Hana, saying t
ho woold shoot him, ?fcc. Mr. Haue is quite
old man, and, fearing the negro might do 1
some injury, he got his gun, and the thre
being continued, he fired, wounding the neg
but not seriously. Tho shooting was no soo:
known to the negroes on the neighboring pl
talions, who belonged to tho League, than tl
commenced assembling, and in a short ti
nearly three hundred were at tho spot, most
them being armed. They surrounded I
house, posting pickets, and preventing all
gross or egress, and said that they would ti

prisoner, though no violence was offered to 1
person. His friends seeing the position
affairs, dispatched a message to Columbia
tho assistance of the military. One compa
of the garrison wer* immediately sent to t
fort, but their _.*mval had been barely ?

appeared. The valiant host, who respect
neither tho sword or the gown, had vanishe

namental and mathematical drawing; but, altera
thorough trial of tho American Polygrade Lead Pen?
cils, manufactured by the American Lead Pencil

pondi lu use, even to the Faber or the old English
Cumberland Lead Pencil, being a superior pencil for
sketching, ornamental and mechanical drawing, and
all the ordinary uses of a lead pencil.
These pencils are very finely graded and have a
very smooth lead : even the softest pencils hold the

FOE INDIYLDUAL WORK AND ENERGY.
We will pay $10,000 in premiums for 20,000 sub?
scribers to THE SOUTHERN HOME JOURNAL;
counting subscribers that come in from al] sources
after this date.
Will be paid to the person who sends us the
largest number of subscribers, with S3 for each sub?

Will be paid to the person who sends us the next
largest number, with S3 for each subscriber.
Two Six Months3 Subscribers, at SI 60 each, will be
counted as one yearly subscriber.
"How cnn you afford this ?" is asked.
Simply by setting apart, for tula purpose, CO cents
of each S3 sent us, which .will put the price of the
paper at our regulur club rates. When the number
reaches 20,000 subscribers, there will be $10,000 set
apart for the premiums.
"But lt will take a long time to make up 20,000 sub?
scribers," some will say.
Judging Irom what has been accomplished with?
out reward, we feel satisfied that by a little energetic
work, lt could easily be done within 60 days. Sup?
pose, for instance, 200 persons undertake to compete
for these premiums and send us on an average
two subscribers a day, in 50 days we should have re
cetve'd 20,000 subscribers, and the person who had
sent in the largest number on the day it reached 20,
00) wonld be entitled to receive the $4000, thc next
largest $3000, tbo next largest S20C0, and the next
Subscribers' names will be received from any city,
town, or county outside of Baltimore dry. Our rea?
sons for excluding Baltimore is that parties in this
city, where fha paper is so well known and highly
esteemed, find no difficulty in getting from 60 to 100
names a day; another reason is to strip the proposi?
tion of everything Uko partiality. The result will be
published in our own columns, also the columns of
the daily papers, so that all parties Interested may
see that the premiums have been awarded to those
who really did the work.
Parties competing for the above premiums will
notify us, and may commence sending in toe names
of subscribers and the money, singly or otherwise,
from this date, which will bc credited to each as re?
Any newspaper publisher, if bc understands the
business, will tell you that thoreis no humbug in this
proposition, but that we could easily afford to pay
$lo,uuo for 20,000 subscribers.
Money sent will be at the ilek ol'the party seuding,
unless sent by poetofflce order or draft.
