-"Another theatrical smash-making the third

groups excitedly discussing the state or affairs.
The Tact that three lame theatres have been com
pelie;i to close their doors In one week, owing to 1
a want of patronage, is regarded as evidence that 1
our mercantile community do not reel lu a very
.happy mood just now." .
-Speaking or the business prospect, a New
York correspondent writes: "It ls yet rather '
early for the spring trade, but I understand that 1
some hoa?es are already quite busy. Business
men are disposed to view the prospect hopefully.
They do not anticipate many more failures, but
they, exercise a good deal of caution in selling-a
thing-they might have done with profit several
year* ago. Houses lu the Southern trade ere
most confident. The trade or that section was I
good last year, and Ls expected to be better this, i
Western trade was not good, and though a ralr
amount is looked tor this season, no extravagant
anticipations In that direction are Indulged in. '
The home trade will probably be about the same 1

plained of, and yet money ts very scarce among
the middle classes. It would be easier to pass a
reconstruction bill through Congress than to col?
lect a dry goods bill :n New York at this moment.
ThK of course, is embarrassing to the retail men,
and keeps many of them in tight places."
-Dr. Snow, the able medical registrar of Provi?
dence, commenting upon the excessive mortality
of children under 5 years of age (who, as most of ,
our readers probably know, constitute on an aver?
age more than half of the total death hst,) after
atating that "summer complaints" arc charged
with more mischief than ls their exclusive due,
and that lung rever, convulsions, and congestive
diseases of the brain ami other organs, "destroy
far more children than citolera infantum and
diarrLoa,'' describes one potent lethal agency lu
the following paragraph, which wc urgently
commend to Ute attention' of rashionablc mothers:
"The truth is, thc enter cause of infantile
mortality is not more the weather, or foul air,
than the ignoiance and false pride of the
mothers. Childrm are silled by the manner in
which they are diessed, and by the rood that is
given them, as much as by any other C iuscs.
infants of the mos- tender age, in our chanjeablc
and rough climate, are lea with bare arms and
legs,and witli low-nc'c dresses. The mothers in
the same dress would shiver and satTcr with cold,
and expect a Ut of sickness as tho result of their
oulpable carelessness. And yet the mothers could
endure such a treatment with far.less danger to
the health and lite than their tender infants." By
this exposure of the extremities, in which the
circulation is always less active than in parts
nearer thc heart, not only is an undue amount of
animal linat lost by radiation, but the blood is
driven In excess to internal organs, orten with
the most disastrous results.
The General Assembly Adjourns :
At length the Legislature has done an act
which we may safely say the people, without
regard to party or complexion, will, with
one voice, heartily commend. That august
body has adjourned sine (He. "When wc
thitik of the men who, upon the comfortable
allowance of six dollars a day, might have
fought it out on tiie legislative linc all the
spring and summer, wc cannot but feel pro?
foundly grateful to the leaders who had the
decency to proposo, the firmness to urge,
and the influence to carry the adjournment.
The taxpayers of the State, one and all,

The Three Black Crows-A Talc of Woe.
In March last the Legislature appointed a
committee to investigate tho condition of
affairs that existed in the Third Congres?
sional District at the time or the general
elections, in November, 1S6S. This commit?
tee now submit their report, to which are
tacked seven hundred and eighteen mortal
page3 of testimony given by the witnesses
who were examined. Tiie public cannot, of
course, analyze the evidence, discover tlie
relative trustworthiness of the several wit?
nesses, or expose the amurirtgly inconse?
quential manner in which the committee de?
clare that two and two make Ave. The re?
port it3elf is euough to show that the whole
job has been a curious compound of igno?
rance, malice, political heat and party pre?
The names of the committee are Joseph
Crews, white; J. J. Wright, colored; Smalls,
colored; Elliott, colored; McIntyre, white,
and Bryant, white; the last named being a
Democrat. Crews is too notorious a charac?
ter to need sketching here. Wright, when
appointed, was a senator, and is now a Judge
of the Supreme Court. Smalls is tho col?
ored man who ran away with the steamer
Planter during the war. Elliott is a leading
Radical negro from Massachusetts and thc
Assistant Adjutant-General of the State.
Their report covers twenty-two closely print?
ed pages, and is divided into chapters,
whose heads, which we reproduce, afford a
fair sample of thc style and spirit of the

These chapter headings will serve to show

committee bolster up thc conclusion of their
report, which is giveu ia the following para?
"We have referred to a sufficient number of*
witnesses to show that there was a party ex?
isting in tlie Third Congressional District, thor?
oughly organized, for the sole purpose of de?
feating the real object of the Reconstruction
acts of the United States Congress; that their
plans were well digested and thoroughly tar?
ried out. We have spoken of a thoroughly
organized party. We icier to the Democratic

Going alittlo deeper into the tragic depths
of the committee's revelations, it is found
that "it was the intention of many of the
"leading Democrats in Newberry County to
"dispense with leading Republicans at all
"hazards." 0: coarse it was. They were
iletermined to dispense with them, just as
the honest citizens in the State, white and
black, intend to "dispeuse with leading Re?
publicans" next fall, because these "lead
"ing Republicans" have done their best to
ruin our State. The committee say that in
Newberry "a white man dared not vote
"either way," which is a rather singular
?tatement in view of the large white vote
polled at every election. And the committee
idd that "it was 3aid that if he (the white
"man) voted the Democratic ticket, it would
"be because he was afraid to vote the Re?
publican," and "his life would have been
"in danger had he voted the Republican
"ticket." The committee declare, in fact,
that in Newberry the intimidation, on tlie
part of the Democrats, was so great, that
no Republican could safely vote any other
than the Democratic ticket; and in the very
lace of this they say that the white men
"dared not vote" the Democratic ticket.
Way? Because "he was afraid to vote the
"Republican." And, according to tlie com?
mittee, the one aim and object of the "dia
"bolical schemes" of the Democrats was to
make men afraid to vote with the Republi?
cans. A pretty cock-and-bull sjiory !
Abbeville, as might have been expected,
is set down as a dark and bloody ground,
where there was "a more thorough system
'of intimidation organized than in New
"berry." The committee, we notice, are a
little reckless in their use of adjectives. For
instance, in Newberry "every scheme that
"could be invented was resorted to, that the
"Republicans might be kept from voting
This is pretty comprehensive; but in Abbe?
ville "thc system of intimidation was a per
"fcct system," which would lead one to sup?
pose that thc Abbeville people had resorted
to some scheme "that could not be in?
dented." Let that pass. Abbeville was
perfect. But lo ! we now come to Ander?
son, "where the system of intimidation was
"evidently more thoroughly organized than
"in the former counties." 'Ere's richness.
Abbeville was perfect, and Newberry had
every scheme that could be invented; but
Anderson is more thoroughly organized than
either. But when we reach Edgcfield we
sup full of horrors; for "in this county it
"appeared to have been tho fixed, positive
"and firm determination to get rid of all
"leading Republicans." This is the sort of
stud" for which the State pays "Judge"
Wriglit.nnd "General" Elliott, and Represen?
tative Crews ten thousand dollars.
Now for a catalogue of bloody murders.
Ia Newberry there were lawless men, "occa
'sionally shooting down a colored man," and
.a/7 the Republicans murdered in this oonn
ty" were leading Republicans. Besides this,
'.all the killing has been done by unknown
"parties.''' And, again, that "Lhere were
"many persons killed just preceding the elec
"tions," the committee have no doubt. New?
berry must bc set down for at least a huudred
In Abbeville "twenty or more violent mur?
ders" were committed, according to the
witness. One ringleader causes "Sixty or
"more shots" to be fired into a crowd of harm?
less Republicans. A Republican was so
badly scared that he left the county and
died. Altogether, in Abbeville, the state of
affairs was "unparalleled in any county
"where the people voted !" According to Hie
Newberry scale, at least two hundred colored
corpses must be credited to Abbeville.
In Anderson "scores of persons were
"killed"-at least, the committee says so;
and bands of men went about "threatening
"and shooting persons who professed Repub?
lican sentiments." More than this, "many
"lost their lives, as many have never been
"heard of since the election." Thero was
ai30 "much firing of pistols and guns,"
which must have hurt somebody. Anderson
must be set down for at least five hundred
.deeds of blood."
Eugefield come3 next, "a county notorious
"for crime," where "hundredsof coloredmen
'would have been murdered on the evening
"previous to and the day of election." As
there was no election, perhaps no more than
two hundred Republicans were sent to san?
At the very lowest calculation, there must
have been at least a thousand cold-blooded
murders at the time of the elections, if there
is any truth ia the report of the committee.
They examined, in all, more than three hun?
dred witnesses, and spent ten thousand dol?
lars. And yet, witli all their desire to
strengthen the party, and to make the worst
of everything and everybody, they do not,
and cannot, prove that six Republicans or
Democrats were killed IN THE WHOLI
COXT.RBSSIONAL DISTRICT during thc pe?
riod covered by their investigation. This
is the actual result of all thc talk about tho
K. K. K., with their drawn daggers, and
naked swords, and winding sheets, and ani
mated skeletons. The committee would
lead the public to suppose that at least one
thousand Republicans were butchered,
though they cannot prove that even a half]
dozen lost their lives for political or any
We protest against this way of spending
the money of the people. There is not a
decent white man or colored man in the
State who will be deceived by Joe Crews
and his committee. There is no Presiden?
tial election at hand. And If the object bc
merely to get up sensational literature for
the edification of unsophisticated Republi?
cans, we would mildly suggest that one hun?
dred dollars invested in Beadle's Dime Nov?
els would supply more blood and brains,
and quite as much truth, ?is eau lie found in
the "ten thousand dollar" job of the famous
Ix examining the list of those who voted
for the resolution of censure, which the
'House of Representatives last week unani?
mously passed, in regard to AVhittemore, we
notice that the name of the Honorable
Christopher Columbus Bowen does not ap?
pear. H?ge, too, who as a member of the
committee signed the report for expulsion,
is among the missing.
Is this delicacy, or is it conscience? No?
body had credited these honorable repre?
sentatives with a spark of either.
