THE RECESr. MCR?KR-Tae. ACCCSED COMMIT
TEJ) TO JAIL.-There was more testimony heard
.before Ooronet Whiring yesterday, relative to tu?
murder of Dick Richards, colonel, whose mutilat?
ed body was'found'floatlng"off the Battery op. last
Malvinla Richards, colored, testified, that she
recognized t ho ho?y 0r jibe-deceased as that
. of her- husband,. Dick B?ehartU, - and testlfled
as '?blfoWs': We'?ved in .St'.* Andrew's Par
is-fcVmy "h?sB'ana- left'"home af twelve o'clock
last Thursday .wees, on a rmi leaded with wood,
wtthfJtcWay and Anthony Ntxo^ srrdttet was
theliat l-saw bf lia ?Uve* I'i?w pWiUW at the
disinterment and recognized him; I know not of
-any quarrel between my husband and the Nixons;
when the Nixons returned-from the city they
told me that my husband had been drowned; that
while he was at Bigelow's store, he said that he
lateafled:"To eat a hearty meal, fox fear that he
would never eat agata;'! that my husband was at
"'the helm of the boat when crossing the last
channel going'to the '-'ty, and he cried out that
he was unable to steer the boat. Friday tben
went to the helm, and deceased crossed his hands
and Jump?! overboard, and was drowned."
The testimony .of the other witnesses showed
that on last Thursday week the accused, Friday
and Anthony Nixon, and the deceased, started to
Char les tim cn a Oat laden with wood. About
.sundown % nexvejenlaj they had gotten as far
AS Elliott's Cut, on James'Island, and concluded
talay to. While'attempting to make their way
to the shore they were quarre lng, which was
heard by parties on the shore. On fastening to
the shore dne?f^he accused borrowed an axe
. from Jane Smith, for the purpose, as he alleged,
of cutting wood to make a fire,' The deceased
was observed moving abont with them until dark.
After the fire was made, a son of Jane1 Smith
went down to the boat. When he returned to his
mother, he stated that two of the men were sit?
ting arennd the fire, and th; other was laying
down in. th? fiat "like he iras asleep."
Previous to thia the ax* had been- re.
tented and "been laid away. (Since then lt
has' been examined and found to oe bloody.]
About eleven o'clock Friday night the fiat started
for tte-city. The next morning the accused were
observed upon James IslanCby some parties who
had seen them-tte evening before, to whom they
stated that about three o'clock A. M. their flat
hqul bce.i swamped while crossing the Ashley,
but the deceased, Just before the occurrence,
jumped overboard and was drowned.
The a:cu?ed were examined before the Coroner
jeaterdav.-- They ?tated that while, off Chlsolm's
Mill, about throe o'clock, Saturday morning, their
fiat swamped and the deceased waa-drowned.
After the negroes gave their statements, they
wt re formally com mitred to Jail to await trial be?
fare the State couri. The testimony against them
is very strong-armost conclusively proving that
? they murdered the deceased, while in the Cut,
with the axe they borrowed, and afterward threw
tte body into the water.

THE STRIKE ON THE IT H AR VES.
The Longshoremen Attempt to Throw a
AV hit? Man Overboard-Tin y also
Throw Bricks at the Men who will
The strike of the members of f ".e Longshore
men's Protective Union Assoclr.uon, which com?
menced on last Friday, beer, ase their employers
would not accede to thr.r demand that they
should only work from se^ en o'clock in the morn?
ing to five o'clock in the . vening, and receive for
those ten hour's work tv* o dollars and a half, and
forty cents for each additional hour they worked,
still continues. The moderation which marked
their conduct at first has given place to violence
and lawlessness, which, if not speedily checked,
will end in bloodshed.
On Friday, soon after the strike conimenced,
Messrs. Ravenel, Bowen and E. W. Marshall call?
ed upon the Mayor and, .-tated that the strikers
were interfering with the white men engaged at
work upon the vessels, l ite Mayor promised to
send policemen to protecc the workmen. Ac?
cordingly a few policemen were sent, and there
was no further interference that day.
Late Friday afternoon one of the stevedores
employed to unload the steamship Charleston, of
the Charleston and Kew York Steamship Line,
flated to a committee of the strikers that he
was willing to employ twenty of them at $2 50>
per day, if they would work with the men already
employed, and from seven o'clock A. M. to six
o'clock P. M., and receive forty cents per hour
after 3lx o'clock. They, after consultation,* re?
fused to accede to this proposition, but the next
morning signified their willingness to work upon
the conditions proposed. Twenty men were se?
lected from fhe large number of strikers present,
and were sent into the hold of the steamship.
They hat? scarceiy commenced worjc when a mes?
senger from the nonAvorkers was sent to them.
He delivered his message, and they Immediately
ceased work and left the vessel.
At aa early hour yesterday morning the strikers
wre on the wharves where the steamships lay,
aoout nearly all of which white men, in addition
to the crews, were at work loading or unloading.
They, by persuasions and threats, succeeded in
indncing the laborers to stop work at all of the
steamships excepting the Charleston. Here,
about 8 o'clock, a very large number of the stri?
kers assembled, thirty or forty or whom went
upon the wharf and interfered with the work?
men, using all methods excepting force to make
them desist. A white man, being worried beyond
endurance by these negroes, ordered them to
keep away from him. They attempted to seize
him, but he resisted until overpowered. Four of
them caught hold of him, and In response to the
cries of the excited crowd to drown him, were
upon the point of throwing him overboard, and
would have done so, but for Mr. Easterby and
other gentlemen who came up. The police were
then called upon, and they came und cleared the
wharf of the negroes. During this struggle the
ahite man received a painful wound in the hand
and was severely bruise 1 in various portions of
the body. After this affair the negroes left thc
Everything along the wharves remained quic
until dark, when the white men and colored men,
not members of the "union,'' who had been work?
ing, ' knocked off work"' to go tosupper. On their
way to and from the wharf they were assailed hy?
the strikers, who threw bricks and rocks at them
-the missiles which struck these men fortunate?
ly inflicting only slight bruises. The Chief of Po?
lice was notified of this affair and sent a small
squad o? police down, when the negroes became,
quiet. We heard of no arrest.
We learn that the Baltimore Steamship Com?
pany employed the longshoremen yesterday to
load the steamship Sea Gull, at thc rates demand?
ed. It ls also stated that the Charleston Bnd New
York Steamship Line have employed forty white
men la New York, who will arrive here in a few
days, and hereafter will load and unload all of
the steamships of the line.
DOS T LEATK YET.-We do not see any occa?
sion for the excessive alarm which prevails
among many of our citizens relative to the tidal
wave which ls expected to make its appearance
to-day or to-morrow, yet our telegrams from the
North show that the tides are unusually high and
are doing considerable damage. Those of our
merchants who have moved their goods out of
the lower to the upper stories have taken a wise
step, as it is very probable that we will have an
ujDsually high tide, and, if so, all goods ia the
lower stories of the buildings near the wharves
would be ia danger Of suffering much damage
from water. An ounce of prevention ls better
than a pound of cure, but it is not necessary
just yet for the women and children to go to
A MARRIED MAN ELorES WITH ANOTHER MAX'S
W'IFE.-On last Saturday morning Captatn Hen?
dricks, Chief of Police, received a telegram from
Colonel Geo. F. Egbert, Chief ofPollce of Rich?
mond, Va., telling him to arrest Thoa. J. Perdue,
wackln company with a woman would probably
arrive m Charleston that afternoon. At 4 o'clock
the Captain and Officer Coates were at the North?
eastern Railroad Depot, and as soon as the train
arrived arrested Perdue, whom they easily recog?
nized by the description sent by telegraph. Per?
due was then carried to the Guardhouse and
locked up. The woman who was with him went
to a private boarding house. Colonel Egbert
was notified of the arrest of Perdue, and tele?
graphed Captain Hendricks to hold him until his
arrival, stating that he was charged with felony.
Colonel E. was expected to a:rive here yesterday
afternoon, bu^dld not.
Perdue says that the woman who came with
him ls twenty-six years of age, pretty, and the
wife of Mr. Scruggs, of Manchester, Virginia.
That he has a wife and two children, but while
she was absent he took the opportunity to elope
with this woman. Perdue says further that he
does not know why he was arrested ; he had done
nothing wrong unless running away from home
without paying his debts could be considered
such. He Ls an ugly-looking customer.
The Richmond papers lu commenting upon the
elopement of Perdue, who married a sister of the
man ?'horn he has so shamefully wronged, states
that the usual monotony of Manchester life was
broken on Saturday by a report of the elopement
of Mrs. Henrietta Scruggs, wife of James Scruggs,
of that place, with Mr. Thomas J. Perdue, himself
a married man. For some months Madame Ru?
mor has conpled the name of the two in a man?
ner by no means creditable. About one month
ago Mrs, Scruggs left this place for her father's,
In Powhatan. About the same time Mrs. Perdue,
who ls a sister of Mr. Scruggs, went to her fath?
er's in Pittsylvauia. On Thursday Mr. Scruggs
received a letter from hts wife stating that she
was going to Petersburg to see some friends, and
would return home on Saturday. On Friday Mrs.
Scruggs and Perdue were seen on the morning
tram from Petersburg. They got off at Chester.
That evening, fearing detection, they returned to
PMprsburg and bought tickets for Charleston,
8. C. The Chief of Police there has been tele?
graphed to, and will doubtless overhaul them.
Mr. Scruggs alleges that his wife carried away
about arty dollars In money and a lot of his cloth?
Mrs. Scruggs, the heroine of this escapade, is a
very good looking and Intelligent woman, and,
until the last few months, has enjoyed a most ex?
cellent character. When seen on Friday she
seemed to be suffering both mentally and bodily.
Thomas J. Perdue is an ill-looking man of blond
complexion, light nair, blue eyes, and downcast
look. He is a millwright by trade, and was lately
employed at Haxall's mill. He can neither read
nor write. James Scruggs, the abandoned hus?
band, ls a laborer at the shops of the Richmond
and Petersburg Railroad. He appears perfectly
overwhelmed at his affliction. Mrs. Perdue, who
has been left alone with two children unprovided
for, ls a most reputable and worthy woman.
This event has created no little excitement ia
the usually quiet and very moral latitude of Man?
chester, and great hopes are entertained that the
gouty one, who has brought desolation on two
peaceful homes, may be arrested and dealt with
M his crimes demand.
It ls believed that Perdue sent bis wife away in
Cider to perfect his plana for this elopement, and
that be had been in correspondence with Mrs.
Scruggs ever ginee her absence.

THE DRAMATIC SEASON was opened last night at
Hibernian Hall quite auspiciously. The house.
Jhpugh not crowded, was well filled, and every?
body was pleased v. Mhe great improvements
which have been made in the stage and its ap?
pointments, since the hall was last used for dra?
matic purposes. The removal of the side doors
has given a very respectable width to the stage
front, and the footlights, heretofore an unsightly
obstruction to the view, have been countersunk
and hidden from the sight of the audience. The
scenery Is altogether new, and exceedingly hand?
some as compared with the wretched daubs
which last winter fcrmed the background to
every performance; and the proscenium decora?
tions constitute a rich frame-work for the mellow
hues o'the Italian water-view which forms the
drop curtain. Altogether the new stage arrange?
ments are very satisfactory, and reflect infinite
credit on the committee of gentlemen who had
them in charge. The committee, we believe, con?
sisted of the President, Secretary and Treasurer
of the Hibernian Society, with the Chairman of
the Finance Committee.
The piece presented was Taylor's sensational
drama, "The Ticket-of-Leave Man," and passed
off smoothly enough. Whatever the shortcom?
ings of the company, Its performance was so far
an improvement upon the theatricals heretofore
given tts. that we feel little disposed to be criti?
cal. Miss Raymond, as usual, was the "enfant
terrible." and plays the part of Sam Willoughby
With evident gusto. Mr. Read, as Brierly, at
times carried his Yorkshire dialect altogether be
yond the point of Intelligibility. Miss Levering,
as Mary Edwards, created a pleasant impression,
though her acting often lacks spirit. Mr. Brown
was only moderately successful as Dalton. Mrs.
Lawrence, as Mrs Willoughby, and Mr. Collins,
as Hawkshaw, played their respective parts al?
most as well as could be desired. The orchestra,
was composed of ten pieces and gave very fair'
