AFFAIMS IN TUE STATE.
DEATH OF AN OLD CITIZEN.
Dr. Divings died at bis home near Crawford- j
ville in Spartanbnrg District, on the 16th inst.,
in the 831 year ot his age. He had been in
feeble health tor several years, which rendered
him unable to engage in the active duties of
hfe. He came from North Carolina, and was
chosen agent of tho Bivmgsvilie Manufactur?
ing Company, in which capacity he acted for
several years. After he withdrew from this
company he built a cotton factory on Chinqae
p? n Creak, a mile and a half from this place.
This enterprise ha abandoned, and erected the
Crawrordvule Cotton factory on Ty ger River,
near where he died. He did more than any
other i nd i vid val to build up add promote the
manufacturing interests of the dietrich
, " TAXES mr TOES.
The Yorfville Inquirer say*:
The work of 'oolleoting State and county
taxes for Xbrk is daily going on; but a large
proportion Ls vetHcpaid. -'Tho total am jun t of
taxation is $52.280.' Of this amount only $22.
527 04 bad been paid ap to and including the
14th instant. It is well to re m o mb or that the
28th instant is the limit during which the taxes
can be paid without further .expense. After
that date 20 per cent., or one-fifth of their
present amount, will positively bo added to all
taxes still to be collected
The auditor has furnished us a few interest?
ing statistics from his books, which we annex.
The number of acres of Jacd returfted is
461,087, and their assessed value is $2,102 418.
The assessed value of buildings not in towns is
$482,614, and that of buildings aud lots in
towos, including Yorkville. Rock Hill, Fort
Mill and Ebenezer, is $443 445. The assessment
of personal property is $1,123 390, and the total
value of all property assessed, real and person?
al, is $4.717,982. The number ot polls returned
for taxation is 2742 and there are supposed to
be some 1500 persons liable to a poll tax whose
names aie not on the tax boon j. Twelve hun?
dred and twenty-six persons have paid this
poll tax. There is some difficulty in ascertain?
ing the amount of the collection of poll taxes,
as all taxpayers are not liable, some being fe?
males and othere over age, _ .c. -
With reference to collectons, there have
^-?lomiropaid on tho State taxes and
forwarded to the treasurer, at Colombia. The
amount of county taxes paid is $6086. The
total State tax, paid and unpaid, is $38,126 85,
and tho county tax is $14.153 94. From the.-e
statistics, it mast be apparent to all that
York pays its fall share for the blessings of
government. Another significant fact can be
disoerned. Owners "of real estate pay three
fourths of the bill. Nearly one-half ot the en?
tire assessment is on land, and nearly one
fourth on town lots and buildings.
THE WEATHEB ANS THINGS IN UNION.
The Times says : It is quilo os dry and
scarcely less warm thai the drought of July.
We are needing raia badly, and unless it comes
soon it will come to late. There was a ?light
rain early yesterday morning, bot not enough
to do much'good.
Air. Frank Parham bas laid upon our table
a fully opened boll of cotton. It grew upon
the farm of Mr. William Eller, near our town.
We believe it ls tba first of the season in this
We regret to learn that the postorace at
Mount Tabor has been discontinued. No
cause is assigned. The nearest postoffice to
that point is elevan miles distant. The citi?
zens in chat section will be much inconve?
nienced by this o .-der.
THE FOOD PROSPECT IN GREENVILLE.
According to the Enterprise, the return of
dry hot weather, after a few good rains two
weeks ago, has again wrought Buch injury to
the corn crops that the uplands must fail most
seriously in this part of the coontry, and corn
will be 'undoubtedly scaroa the coming year,
i he bottom land in this region will yield abun?
dantly, but most farmers have but little bot?
tom; those, who have such lands will be sore of j
a big price for corn. The prospect is that the
neople of this State will have to import grain
largely from other States, and although good
crops of cotton may be made, the deficient
corn crop will make money scares o n account
of the heavy drain for provisions.
PA?INp TAXES IN ANDERSON.
The county treasurer has been kept quite
busy for the past two waaks, and every day
onr'town presents a lively appearance in con?
sequence of the large number of taxpayers as?
sembled. We are informed that aoout $30,600
has been collected, but we have no idea as to
the ratio of taxpayers who havo not yet com?
plied with the law. A goodly number ot ne?
groes are on hand each day, but the large
majority will doubtless prove de?iuqaent.
BEVTVAL9 TN MABLBOEO'.
The Bennettsville Journal gives the follow?
Tho religious meeting at Beauly Spot Metho?
dist Church closed on Thursday last, and re?
sulted in the conversion of several, twenty-two
of whom joined the church. The revival at
Hebron Church, which commenced on Friday
Inst, still continues and is largely attended.
There seems to bo a powerful awakening of the
holy spirit, and tho community seem power?
fully impressed on the subject of religion. At
Brownsville and Beaver Dam thera ure also re?
vival meetings in progress, winch promises to
be abundantly rewarded by a large number of
convoitions and accessions to tho several
churches. Verily the spiiit of God is at work
among the people.
A d?ad negro child was found partially
buried about three miles from Bennettsville
a few uivB ago. supposed to have been de?
stroyed by its mother, a negro woman, imme?
diately upon giving it birth. An inquest waa
held over the dead infant, but it having beeu
buried too long to be properly ex mimed by
the physician, no tjcoof could be gathered as
to whether it was put to death or not. lt bad
been buried without thc knowledge of any one,
and the supposed routderess ot her infant had
fled the community.

spectfully report :
That we proceeded in person to St. Louis,
where we met with similar delegations from
thirteen different Southern and Western States,
where, after appointing the proper commit?
tees, the affair j of the company were subject?
ed to a thorough and searching personal ex?
amination; that the expenses of the company
of every kind, up to July 1st, 1869, were fully
accounted for; that all the policies issued ex
oept two, were paid for according to the prin?
ted rates of the company, (the two policies J e
ferred to were issued by mistake, caused by
misrepresentation, which policies, however,
will not be renewed;) that in no respect has
the Association violated their contract with
the policy-holders; that far from rinding any?
thing to censure or condemn,- we can with foll
confidence recommend this institution to the
favorable considerations of our.citizens, and
endorse the working and management of the
company by its present able board ot officers.

TAX OTT BARKERS A2YD BROKERS.
It was stated some weeks ago that the New
York brokers who had been assessed for a
heavy tax OD their dealings in stock, 4c., had
brought the matter before the Commissioner
of Internal Revenue, and employed able counsel
to argue the questions involved. On Tuesday
Commissioner Delano decided that the brokers
should be taxed. The result is of great interest;
to business men in New Tork, and greatly
concerns the general public, noce the commis?
sioner's decision brings to the Treasury about
$100,000 per week from sources which never
paid the tax before. The decision is in the
cases of Wood & Belch, et al, claiming to be
brokers and not bankers, arid concludes as
It is claimed that Congress bas conceded
that persons who complete the transaction of
Bale by receiving and delivering stock are still
only brokers. Such an argument is inapplica?
ble to this question, until it is shown bow
Congress speaks of persons as brokers who
have places of business where ihey make it
their vocation to- effect such sales. This
section alan speaks of contracts for sales, ne?
gotiated on accouot ol others by persons who
are not even brokers, bat this is no concession
that such persons may make it their business
to negotiate such contracts without becoming
liable to ba taxed as brokers. . Undoubtedly
it is not every negotiation or^tontraob that
would cou vet t a casual person., into a broker;
nor every sale a delivery that would convert a
braker into a banker. If a broker has no
place ot business, or does not, in the contem?
plation of tho statute, make a practice of re
cannot well be regarded aa a ba uk or, an J onch
Veale made by bim. is properly described as a
salo made by a broker. It was the object of
this section to reach all sake and contracts for
s ales made by one person on account of another,
and not to furnish a definition for terms already
defined. The rule that all parts of a statute are
to be taken together in explaining the meaning
of each pirt is applicable only when there is a
reasonable question about tho meaning of the
latter, and is wholly inapplicable to a preoise
definition, lt may be added, however, with
reference to the meaning of the term "nogoii
ate," as used in the 78th section, that the very
section appealed to en amorates sales made and
contracts for sales negotiated, and thus im
plies a definition of term by its application
4fter a careful consideration or the statute, I
am of the opinion that a person whose business
it is to negotiate purchases or sales of sto oks
is a banker according to t be moaning of sect ion
78, act of June 80.1884, if be hu a place of
business where be receives from others sto cks
whose eales be negotiates, or where money is
advanced or loaned on stocks.
TUE RAILROAD HORRORS.
Aatonuhlng Disclosures by a Prisoner.
The New Tork Sun ha-! the following dis?
POET JEBVIS, PD., August 17. ?I i the spring
of 1868 several serious accidents occured on
the line of the Delaware division of the Erie
Railway, in one of wbioh-the Carr's Rock dis?
aster, on the morning of the 15:h of April in
that year-more than a score of passengers
lost their lives, and fifty or sixty others were
wounded, lu each ot these cases the track hrd
been maliciously displaced, but all the efforts
of the company to ferret out tne perpetrators
proved futile, and finally a st.aiding reward of
$1000 ivas cffeied for any evidence which woul J
lead to tbeir conviction.
> A short time beiore the occurrence of these
disasters, the compauy discharged,from their
employ and caused the arrest of an English?
man, John Bowen, sixty-four years of age,
for forging a pay-roll. Bowen hos been.in
this country for ' twenty-two years, and has
resided in the neighborhood of id. arrowbush
and Ros i's Switch for severol years past.
After the Carr's Rock dit aster, this Bowon
went to Mr. Donglas, then division superinten?
dent, and accused one James Knight or tam?
pering with the rails a few boars before tho
disaster. The company at once put tho mat?
ter into ibo bands of the detectives, but they
failed to cat h or sufficient evidence to warrant
them in bringing Knight to trial.
On the 15;h of April last a rail was found
torn up near Stairway Brook, and renewed ef?
forts were made to trace out the guilty person.
After a patient investigation of all the facts
that they could gather, tho company come to
the conclusion that Bowen himself waa the
criminal, and they accordingly had him arrest?
ed and locked np in Milford (Penn,) jail,
where he confessed that ho had tampered nish
the nils on the 28th of May.
On Monday Bowen nudo a second and full
confession, acknowledging himself tho perpe?
trator of each and every one of tho crimes
which led to such a loss of life and limb. He
made il voluntarily, having been warned that
ho need Dut expect to gain any leniency there?
by at the hands of tho company.
-Tho munificence of .Mr. Peabody bas found
an honorable rivalry in the act of a manufac?
turer of Bumineham, Euglund, Mr. Josiah
Mason, who hos just delivcicd to the trustees
thc property and endowments ol his s plendid
pile of almshouse and orphanage at Erdington.
The amount of money expended in this bene?
faction is no less than ?260 000, boing equal to
the donation of Mr. Peabody to thc London

to try them. I commenced with a small wine-glass

say- sir Astley cooper, "ou <ht io know by bis sen?
sations that he has a stomach." In other woror,
when digestion ls periect there is neither pain nor
uneasiness in the region where it lakei place. ' Nau?
sea, want of appetite, flatulency, oppression after
eating, shooting pams in the epigastrium, a flush,
lng ol the face at meal Urala, and a furred tongue in
the morning, are among the direct symptoms of in?
digestion. Constipation, biliousness, headache, ner?
vous irritability, physical weakness, and low spirits,
ara its slamat invariable accompaniment*. All tbese
indication-, of dyspepsia, whether immediate or
secondary, are usually aggravated by hot weather.
The close of sommer Is, therefore, the season
when the victim of dyspepsia most urgently needs
a tonic and regulating medicine. Of course, every

MW A CARD-SOUTHERN LIFE INSUR?
ANCE JAPPANT, ATLANTA DEPARTMENT.
To the People of South Carolina:
The above company was organ zed in 1866, in
consequence of the wholesale forfeiture of Southern
policies by Northern companies. The unparalleled
success of the enterprise has forced several of theso
companies lo restore their Soot ern policies, irom
the fact that they could not operate in our midst
without the appearance of honesty.
We keep all oar money at home to build up our
impoverished country-every dollar of premium
being safely invested in the State from which it is de?
rived. The institution is pm ely Southern, and hence
shou'd appeal with great force to the patriotism and
and sympathy of every Southern heart.
'Tis not our purpose to make war on other com?
panies, but to exhibit the special advantages off-red
by this purely Southern Company-founded cn
patriotism and solid wealth. Ita ratio of assets to
liabilities-the tra? test of a company's strength-ls
second to none oa this continent, being nearly $300
to SI 00.
Whenever and wherever we have presented the
claims of this Compauy, it has not only enlisted the
sympathies of our people, but bas also secured their
hearty co-operation. We have secured 503 policies
in South Carolina since the 10th of February. We
number among our Directors General Wade Hamp?
ton and Colonel Wm. Johnston, gentlemen well
known to every citizen of South Carolina. We ap?
peal personally to the people of ?oath Carolina to
assist in pushing forward thiB deservedly popular
Southern institution. , J. H. MILLER,
