PERSONAL.-His Excellency Governor On
left for Beaufort last night on the steamer
THE MITES yesterday missed again; the train
must heve failed making connection at Flor?
ence, as we did not even get the Wilmington
papers. When the thaw Bets in there will be
more mail matter than we will know what to
do with. There are four days' New York mail
doe to-day, and three days from Baltimore.
We should muoh prefer taking it in broken
doses, if it was all the same to the mail and
THE CONVENTION TAX.-General Canby has
ordered assessors of taxes to add to thoir
assessments the tax levied by tho convention
for the purpose of paying the per diem aod
contingent expenses of that body. The Treasu?
rer of the State is authorized and directed to
pay the per diem and mileage of the dek gates,
the contingent expenses, and the compensa?
tion of the officers, upon the warrant of the
President in the usual form.
COTTON TOB CHARLESTON.-Last Sunday
morning, says tho Newberry Horald, wo wit?
nessed a Bight on the Greenville and Columbia
Railroad : a train of cars so heavily freighted
with cotton that it required three engines to
move it along-one engine pulling, one push?
ing, and another in the centre. It was a long
traill, and a oheering spectacle. We learn that
there must have been something like twelve
hundred bales on the train, and all for Charles?
ton. The like we bad not seen since auld lang
GCLITBILTTY.-The corner of Market and
Meeting streets was graced yesterday with the
presence of an original and genuine ''down
.aster," who collected the greenbacks from the
unsophisticated freedmen while he permitted
them to enjoy the privilege of looking through
a brick. This unusual luxury was not ex?
plained to the sightseers, and they left folly
satisfied that they had witnessed a miracle.
The trick is so old that it is hardly worth the
trouble of explaining it, aa all who have
thought upo.u the subject know that the singu?
lar result is produced by a combination of mir?
rors which reflect the light sud enable the
spectator to see under and beyond the inter?
vening brick. The showman has, howevar,
come to the right place, and will probably re?
alize a small harvest of greenbacks, as the
members of the convention will not hestitato
te Bpeud. their last per diem in seeing every
-'thing that is marvellous. - . .
THAT ISON Box?-Our iron advertising box,
at the corner of East Bay and Broad-street, is
intended for advertisements, and not for letters
for tho mails. During the last few days so
many stamped letters have been put into the
box that there has not boen room in it for the
advertisements of our friends, and we are com?
pelled, therefore, to ask that letters for the
mails be in future sent to the kind care of Post?
master Trott. If the iron box of THE NEWS is
known to be open for letters, the clerks at the
postoffice will have nothing to do,-there will
ba no possibility of crowding in the advertise?
ments whiv'h swell our columns,-trade will
die entirely, men will look bluer, and the whole
universe will be disgustingly mad. Such will
be the consequences of popularity, and, as au
act of charity, we again request our friends to
allow the "iron box" to be used for its proper
and legitimate purpose.
The letters already put into the box have
been taken to the poetofflce by tho-famous ex?
press wagon with its four dashing hor??B, and.
although the immense weight caused some
danger of a "stall," the goal on Hasel-street
was safely reached, and special trains char?
tered to carry out the enormous mail
FIRE.-About two o'clock yesterday the alarm
of fire was sounded by the Orphan HOUSJ bell,
and in a short time every ensrine was out and
fully manned. Ward 4 was struck, and the
crowd surged toward the western portion of
the city, but a majority of the cngineB carno
to a halt in Wentworth-street. Fowporsona
knew where the fire was or why tho alarm had
been sounded, and it was only after a consider?
able search that the facts were obtained. It
appears that the congregation of Bethel have
for somo time complained of the waste of gas,
and the officers of the church sont yesterday
for one of the operatives of the gas works to
investigate the leak. ThiB man must have
struck a match near the metre, for there was
au explosion, and he rushed cut and informed
the policeman that the church was on lire, and
it was impossible to extinguish it. The alarm
waa instantly given, but before the engines ar?
rived the flames had been smothered by wei.
carpets. But little damage was dene, as the
metre was nuder the stairway, and tho Arc had
not communicated to the wood work before it
was extinguished The cars on the Rutledge- j
street line were delayed some time by the en?
gines stopping on the track, but these obstruc?
tions were, however, soon removed, and the
jost time regained before the close of the daj.
LOSE YOUS CLOTHES OB CLOSE Yous Doc
We have been requested to call attcnt
the carelessness of housekeepers in not cl
their doors at night. These cases are o
quent occurrence, and scarcely a night p
but some op3n doors are observed by th
lice. At tbe present time, when coat an
thieves are so numerous, every proca
should be taken. The majority of these
beries aro committod by experienced hi
who watch every opportunity, and an
door is a sign of carelessness that is at
appreciated by the midnight prowlers. Ii
present state of the community, and witt
number of worthless characters who are r
ing about, it would be well for every one t
up to tho old proverb, "Fast bind, fast fln?

THE EXECUTION OP JOHN JENKINS.-Joh
Jenkins, a freedman, who several months ag
was convicted for the murder of Mr. Brant
ford, will be executed in the city jail yard o:
Friday, the lltL inst.
The circumstances connected with the mm
der of Mr. Brantford have been a subject o
much doubt and speculation. Although Jenkin
was identified by a number of persons as bein)
among the body of rioters from whom the fata
brick was thrown, but one individual testifiei
that he personally saw Jenkins throw this mis
sile. The latter, however, was found guilty
and sentenced to be executed several month
ago. The military authorities, not satisfiet
with the verdict, and perhaps believing th
man to bo innocent, interposed; Jenkins wai
respited; the case was carried to the Appea
Court, the judgment of the lower court affirm
ed, and recently the prisoner was re-sentenced
From testimony that has come to hgj
within the past few days, there is a probabilit.
that the suppositions of the military anthon
ties may yet be verified, and that if there hai
not been intentional perjury on the part of on<
of the witnesses, who claims to have identifi?e
Jenkins os the mmderer, he certainly appeaii
to have committed a very grievous error ot
A plan of the locality in which the murdal
was committed has been made, and office rs
have gone carefully over tho ground to ascer?
tain whether or not it would be possible for the
witness to identify the act of the prisoner al
the distance, and from the position which Le,
the witness, claims to have ocoupied. The ex?
amination shows that such an identification iE
a physical impossibility.
Jenkins, himself, persistently denies that he
was in the riot at alL He k6pt a small cake
shop, at that time, in the vicinity of Tracld
street. The first party arrested was one Scipio
Fraser, a freedman, and it was not until t wc
or three days after that Jenkins was lodged in
jail, and brought face to face with Fraser. '.?he
latter emphatically declared that Jenkins ' vas
not guilty of the offence charged against him.
Fraser was found guilty, and sentenced to
death, but died in jail. On his deatb-bed he
made a confession, in which he declared that
the brick was thrown by a man named Wil?
liams, whose whereabouts have not yet I een
discovered, and that Jenkins had nothing
whatever to do with the niattor.
We saw Jenkins in jail a few days ago. Ho
professed to be perfectly resigned to his late,
and states that when he goes to the scaffold
bis last romaik in this world will bo that ho
dies innocent of tho crime charged against
him. Ho is an exceedingly ignorant negro,
was born in thc vicinity of Charleston, and, so
for as religious instruction is concerned, has,
until lecently, deserved to bo classed as a
heathen. He is now daily visited by one c f the
priests of the Catholic Church, and occasion?
ally by Sisters of Mercy, under whose im trac?
tion a change of mind has been occasioned, BO
that Jenkins will encounter his fato with nome
thing like Christian resignation. He is appa?
rently twenty-two or twenty-thicoyearsofage,
rather below the medium height, thoroughly
black, and wears continually upon his face
that peculiar smile which we described as
having greeted the Judge when bis Hone r pro?
nounced the solemn death senteuce.
Tars M?BDEB OF MR. J. FBASER MATTHE
JB.-A DABTABDLY AND DELIBEBATE DEI
BLOOD.-On Tueaday last a cold-blooded
dastardly murder was perpetrated near P
fort ia thia Stale, under circumstances w
make the crime peculiarly boinous.
It appears that the plantation of Mr.
8au8.riuro, near Beaufort, has not been pla:
since tho war, but has boon occupied by a p
of negroes who have lived by pillaging
atoaling, and who had made themselves
terror of the neighborhood. The gang ha

when an animal was suddenly missing, it
assumed that it had fallen into the hand
the negro land-sharks.
Mr. J. Fraser Matthewcs was living on
Coo- aw plantation, and lost some mules,
soon as the loes was discovered it was sugg

Mat :hewes determined to niako an attemp
reoover his property, with the sanction and
der authority of the law. He accordingly j
cured tho assistance of a constable and a pc
of four oolored men, and thua accompax
went ont to the DeSaueaure plantation.
TV hen the party reached the plantation t

bodied negroes who made the place their

formation was laid, but met with rosiatar.
At thia moment the posse took to their be

This is all that ia known; but it is enough

any shadow of justification, and that there

Mr. Matthewes was a youngman of fii
