A Co., large flour merchants of our city-the con
?Csigument being from Messrs. J. M. Clark A Co., pro?

flour was prepared from wheat grown near Augusta,
from selected white Southern seed, and was raised
by Messrs. Morgan A Campbell, who planted one
hundred and twenty-five acres, and expect to secure
some sixteen hundred bushels. This article will
rank among the best double extra, and consumers
who desire superior bread, will do well to supply
themselves from the Messrs. Stenhouse, who will be
in regular receipt of it The efforts cf Mesara. J.
M Clark A Co. to turn out flour of unexceptionable
> quality have been crowned with complete success,
.sud purchasers can rely upon getting a suitable ar?

COURT OF GENERAL SESSIONS AND COMMON
PLEAS.-This Court adjourned yesterday sim die,
af.er a laborious sei sion, in which some important
legal business was transacted. Judge Platt, the
military appointee, though confessedly unfrwHi^r
with South Carobnalaw, bas Ailed his position ac?
ceptably to the bar, ' and in bia charges and rulings
has shown, his desire to dispense impartial justice.
The closing-case of yesterday waa one of some im?
portance, being a suit brought against six insurance
companies for non-payment of policy. The plaintiff
waa Mr. Fred; W. Salmas, whose .property at Gra?
ham's Turnout was burnt in June, 1867, and was in?
sured for $11,000 in six Northern insurance compa?
nies, represented by Messrs. W. B. Heriot A Co., S.
Y. Tupper end J. D. Ford. The agents refused to
pay the claim, alleging an insr fflciency of proof, and
a suit was brought to recover the money. Mesara.
C. G. Meemi inger and Macbeth A 'Buist appeared
jg for the plaintiff, and Simonton A Barker and J. B.
Campbell contra. After s full trial of the case, the
jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff for the fun
amount, 811,000, with interest from June, 1687.
Tbe Proposed Columbia Convention.
The Newberry Herald, Anderson Intelligenc?
er, Yorkville Enquirer, Camden Journal, the Colum?
bia Phoenix, and other leading State journals are op?
posed to holding another convention, as proposed at
the Hibernian Hall meeting.
At a late meeting of the Central Democratic Club
of Fairfield District, the following resolutions were
offered by Colonel Rion:
Resolved, That iu the opinion of the Democracy of
Fairfleld.it is neither expedient nor desirable for an?
other convention to be holden ia Columbia, inas?
much as the real sentiments and opinions of the
State were fully and truly represented by the con?
vention held on the 6tb and 7th of April last; and the
citizens of every portion of the State had ample no?
tice to enable them to be represented at the las:
named convention, had they at that time chosen to
avail themselves of the privilege.
Resolved, That it is inexpedient to depart from the
position taken by the Columbia Convention on the
euffxage question, inasmuch as the same has receiv?
ed the hearty sanction of the Northern Democracy,
as applying to South Carolina.
Resolved, That inasmuch as in the eleotions already
holden, pledges have been nade and votes obtained,
and organizations have been effected upon the said
suffrage platform, honor now forbids our withdraw?
ing from the same.
At a meeting of the Kershaw District Democratic
Association, held on Monday, a sot of resolutions
were adopted, of which the following are the most
2. That we would gladly meet in council those, in
whose integrity and principles we have entire confi?
dence, believing that they and we differ only in
views of the policy likely to produce the desired re?
sult, but we are relucantly constrained to perceive
that in the programme susgested. as well as in the
spirit exhibited at the meeting in Charleston, seeds
nf distrust and discord are apparent, which would
inevitably produce serious and distracting divisions,
and, too, upon unnecessary points, oi which a Con?
stitutional Democratic convention could not consis?
tently assume jurisdiction.
3. That, therefore, we respectfully decline to join
the convention called to assemble in Columbia on
Monday next, the 8th of June, and iostead we sug?
gest as additional nominees to the "National Demo?
cratic Convention" to assemble in New York in July
next, the : olio wing names:
For the State at Large-Hon. W. D. Porter, Hon.
For First Congressional District-Hon. John A.
The following are the delegates of the Democratic
Club of Christ Church Parish, Berkeley Dis tri.: t, to
the convention at Columbia: Judge F. D. Richard?
son, George F. Kinloch, E6q., Major E. F. O'Brien,
and M. W. Yenning. Eaq.
The following resolution waa ordered to be pub?
lished by Henry S. Tew, Esq., chairman:
% Resolved, That the discrimination attempted by the
Radical convention at Chicago between the right of the
people North and South to regulate suffrage among
themselves ls an insidious attackupon the exercise of
the r?rht everywhere; and if by ungenerous and artful
appeals to passions, excited by causes which no lon?
ger exist, universal negro suffrage be forced upon
the South, a cardinal principle for the protection of
the rights and liberties of the people of each State
will be destroyed, and an immense stride in the
establishment of a central despotism accomplished.
A public meeting of the Democracy of Georgetown
District has been held in the town hall. Besolutions
j were adopted denouncing negro suffrage; and'en
? dorsing the call of the Charleston and Ed?efleld De?
mocracy; also instructing the delegates to present
to the convention the name of the Bon. B. H. Wilson
to represent the district at the National Convention.
! Th- following delegates were nominated to the Co?
lumbia Convention: Tr. A. BC Forator, Major F. S.
Parker, R. L Middleton, Jr., Samuel Sampson, Gen.
A. M. Manlgault, J. J. Pringle and Hon. R. Dozier.
CELEBRATION OF THE BAPTIST SOND?T
SCHOOLS.-The schools attached to the Church
street and Citadel Square Baptist Churches as?
sembled yesterday afternoon at the First Presby?
terian Church, (Dr. Smyth's,) to celebrate their,
usual summer festival. Tables had been spread
on the mall in front of the church, and fes?
toons * moss and evergreens were pendant from
the rx -f the trees and stretched across the
walk. Tu? proliminary services were held in the
church, the pews on each side of the main aisle being
occupied by the boys and girls. The space in front
of the pulpit was asa! gu ed to the superintendents of
the schools and to the clergy. Nearly four hundred
children were present, and a large attendance of
their parents and friends, who occupied the seats
on the side aigles.
The exercises were opened with prayer bv the
Rev. E. T. Winkler, D. D., pastor of the Citadel
Square Baptist Church, ofter walch, the children
sang in concert a hymn entitled "Universal Praise."
Ibe little choir were well trained, and the harmony
produced by the combined voices was quite pleas?
The remainder of the exercises were reading the
Scriptures and singing other hymns. Master Edward
Salinas, a Sunday School acholar, about thirteen years
of age,- delivered an address on the advantages of
Sunday Schools in training the young. Ma?ter Wm.
W. Thayer, a youth of the same age, was the next
orator. His address was a description of an army,
and a compatison oi that with the Sunday School
scholars, the latter belonging to the army of Christ
The youthful orator concluded by urging all to join
that noble band, and asserting that "I'm glad I'm
in that army." The addresses were written for the
occasion, and the manner in which they were de.
livered reflects credit on both the boys and their
The Rev. Dr. Winkler addressed the children in a
pleasing strain, and assured them that religion did
not consist in an austere Ufe and sanctimonious bear?
ing. He repeated several anecdotes, showing that
the love of Jesus was the sunshine o.' life, and should
be carried into the home of every Sunday Schcol
After a closing hymn, "The Lovely Land," the
benediction was pronounced, and tho children dis?
misse 1 to the mali, where the tables had been spread
with a bountiful conation. 'I he te-.chers marshalled
(he little ones and assigned them places at the table-,
where the eatables soon disappeared before the in
fantry charge. The children enjoye-l themselves
until evening ttdmoairhed the older and wiser heads
to turu their faces homeward, and the mall was
reluctantly left to solitude and moonlight.
Mr. William Thayer, superintendent o:' the Fi: st
Baptist, and Messrs. John G. Milnor and William S.
Henerey, superintendents o: the Citadel Square Bap?
tist Church schools, were both present ; also the Rev.
Dr. Winkler, several of the clergy of other denomina?
tions, and the Rev. Dr. Williams, a distinguished
Baptist divine from Baltimore. The latter clergy?
man had just arrived, and will perform the installa?
tion services at the Citadel Square Church to?
THE PRIVATE OPINION OF AN M". C.-WHAT
HE THINKS OF SCALAWAGGERT-We have been
permitted to read a private letter to a gentleman of
this city, from one ol the leaders of the Radical party
in the House of Representatives, and his comments
upon the condition of affairs here and elsewhere are
so curiously illustrative of the influence of the car
pet-baggists and others, upon even the ultra-Radical
mind, that we publish the following extract :
I do not pretend to understand your Southern
politics, but there is one thing I do know, and that is
that the newly reconstructed states seem determin?
ed to send a good many scalawags to the Senate,
and I believe firmly that had Arkansas Dc cu admit?
ted. on? of her senators elect would have gone with
Chase. Fessendeu, Fowler, Ress k Co. I hear all
sorts of things said about South Carolina. Without
knowing who were intended by the remark, I was
tolJ. that it was veritable that we' would get a drunk?
ard and a dolt from that State. Can it be possible ?
Certain it is that a man who stands convicted in pub?
lic judgment, though not legally convicted, ot insur?
ing a steamboat for a hundred thousand dollars and
giving the captain ten thousand dollars to sink her.
under circumstances that would secure to him the
insurance money, is the most prominent candidate
for that high office from Louisiana. Cannot better
than this be done by the people of States that have
been regenerated by fire and sword ?
In reference to the conduct of tbe recreant sena?
tors in 'he matter of impeachment, it was a conspira?
cy, of which Chief Justice Chase was the head, to over?
throw the Republican party, and by a union with the
Democracy and the control "of Johnson's patronau'o to
briug Mr. Chase into the Presidency I do not be?
lieve all the senators who voted wrong were in it. I
think that Fessenden was duped by thom. Hender?
son was probably duped by them; but the others
were bribed by political ambition and, in the coin
common judgment of the countrv, by grosser

into the boat. He was Immediately Billed, in self
defence, and brought to the city. We learn that he

AFFAIR OF HONOB-TWO COLOBXD MEN Fl^HT
A DUEL-THC CHALLENGER KILLED.-A telegraphic
dispatch from Savannah briefly informed our read?
ers that a negro man had been killed in a duel. The
novelty of this tragic affair induces us to give full
particulars from the News and Herald of Thursday :
A duel was fought yesterday at Sere yen's Ferry,
on the Carolina shore, between two colored men of
thi* city, respectively named Jackson Brand and Eu?
gene Morehead, which resulted in the death of the
The facts, aa far as could be ascertained, are as
follows: "Jackson Brand was President cf the Colored
Conservative Club, No. 1, and Eugene Morehead
Vice-Pretident Brand was not long ago a violent
Radical and a member of the Union League, but
changed his politics and became an ardent supporter
of Conservative principles. Among the members of
the Conservative Club of which he was President
wore a few who believed he rr aa playing n doable
game: among them waa Morehead, wbo kept a close
watch upon bim. On Monday last Morehead ob?
served Brand leaving the bouse of s noted
Radical, and at once accused him of double
dealing, and said, among other things, that
he (Brand) had made a speech in the Loy?
al League, in which be had stated that
it was his iutcntic n to wash his hands in the blood of
every southern man. Brand denied the charge, and
a hot quarrel ensued, which, but for the interposi?
tion of friends, would have terminated ta a fight on
the spot They separated, and thc next day (Tues?
day) Brand sent a challenge to mortal combat to
Morehead, Alexander Hardee, secretary of the Con?
servative Club, bearing 'the missive. On handing
the note to Morehead) Hardee was asked by him
what it was all about. Hardee replied that it was a
challenge to fight, and that Brand had sent it, where?
upon Morehead, who was unable to read or write,
asked Hardee to read it which waa done. Morehead
thon asked Hardee to write an accer tance of the
challenge, and state that he would choose don* le
barrelled shot gone, loaded with sixteen buckshot;
the distance sixteen paces; and the duel at sere yen's
Ferry the next morning, at seven o'clock. The chal?
lenge was written, carried, agreed to, and every
preparation made for tho meeting on the "field cf
honor" the next morning.
About a quarter past nine the preliminaries were
arranged, and the opponents placed opposite each
other, fifteen pace? distant, with double barrelled
guns, one barrel of each being loaded with sixteen
buckshot Brand seemed somewhat nervous, while
Morehead was perfectly cool and collected. At the
command both simultaneously fired, and Brand fell,
exclaiming "I'm not whipped yet," while at the
same time was heard the exultant shout of More?
head, "By God I've got him," and afterward he re?
marked that Brand seemed so "scared .ike" that he
thought he would not kill him, but shoot him in
the legs and give him time to repent of his treache?
ry. Brand's second went to him a* soon as Ile.fell,
and found that thc charge from Morehead's gun had
entered both thighs. Brand was quite weak from
loss of blooJ, and he could not stand up,
bu; said if his second would ^ield him up
he would exchange shots again. His sec?
ond very properly refused to allow any further
hostilities. Morehead then walked over to where
Brand was lying, and shook hands with bim. With
the as8istjBco of Morehead and the others, Brand
was brought to thc city, and carried to his house.
Drs. Bulloch and Morrison were sent for, but the suf?
ferer had been so loug without medical aid that
their skill was unavailing, except to alleviate thc
pain, and he died two hours and a half after receiv?
ing the wound, which severed one, and probably
both of the femoral arteries.
We understand that Morehead, upon being asked
why surgeons had not been obtained, replied that
he went to one, and he charged fifty dollars, and "I
couldn't afford it; anyway, I didn't intend to be kill?
ed, and I thought the other iellow would have sense
enough to bring one." _ _*
