THE EECENT DISASTER.
Another Victim Found Amid thc Ruins
-Inquest-Verdirt ol" thc Jury.
When the accident at No. 241 King street
occurred, Tuesday afternoon, and the victims
heretofore mentioned were removed, lhere
was a diversity of opinion whether or not there
were others beneath the dehn*. .Some claim?
ed that there were; ether? as loudly asserted
the contrary. It was mentioned that a color?
ed laborer named Francis Smith was missing.
Some who claimed to know assorted that he
was seen alive after the accident and had gone
home. This statement served to satisfy nearly
all; but a number of white aud colored men in?
timated their disbelief ot the statement, and a
few of these were in favor o? going to work
to remove the mass of brick and wood. How?
ever, it appears that iittie or nothing was done
that uight by any one to ascertain whether or
not the missing man was beneath the ruins.
Early Wednesday morning, laborers commenc?
ed to remove thc brick; and timber. Shortly
after this work was started, it. was definitely
understood that Franc'.? Smith was not to be
found. ??The nn-tr.ral conclusi?n then was that
he must be under the ruins, and it proved
FINDING THE 30DV.
About 9 o'clock yesterday morning. Hie body
ot' Francis Smith wa? discovered near the
south wall, and the remainder ol' tho rubbish
which was upon it was al once removed, and
Hie body taken out. and. in obedience to in
stru ?tions from Coroner Whiting, carried to
the home of the deceased, on Trapmann street.
Near the deceased was found the fragments of
a wheelbarrow. Ti'.e body was shockingly
mangled, so much so as to be scarcely recog?
nizable. ?... ? -
As stated by.u?. the inquest upon the body
of Jacob?Nelson. colored, who died from lils
injuries on Tuesday night..wa? adjourned until
eleven A. M. yesterday. At that hour it was
held at the office of Hie coroner on Chalrns-rs
street, and at Hie same tinie and place Hie In?
quest upon Hie body of Smith was also held.
The testimony relative to the death of both
was substantially the same a? that at Hie in?
quest upon the body of Joseph Perkins, pub?
lished in yesterday? NEWS, excepting that it
was testified that Francis Smith, just previous
to the accident, was rollin? a wheelbarrow of
sand into thc building, and observing that Hie
wall was about to tumble, dropped his wheel?
barrow and rushed towards Hie south wah,
where he must have been instantly killed. '
After hearing all of the testimony the jury
deliberated awhile, and found that the deceased
had come to their deaths by the falling of the
wails at No. 241 King street, on Tuesday last,
and the Jury were of the opinion that no
blame could beu'ttached to auy one.
It was the opinion ol' many of our citizen?,
both white and colored, that there was un?
necessary delay in proceeding to n?move Hie
debris when it was believed that Hiere were
other victims beneath it. ft must be borne in
mind, however, that the juries summoned to
hold the inquests gave the whole matter a
thorough Investigation, and acquit all of any

May 20.1570, SAMUEL J. TOWNSEND, Esq., ur Ben
nettsvllle. South Carolina.
The deceased was bori; In Marlboro' Uistrlct,
South Carolina. In September. A. D. 183ft, heinz
the fourth son of Jablsn and Elizabeth Townsend.
He came of excellent parentage. Ills father and
mothc;- were both noted foi superior Intelligence,
good sense and virtue, and were connected with
Hie best families of Marlboro'. Their children,
without an exception, have given evidence of the
same endowments, aud. with greater educational
advantages, have made themselves useful and
prominent citizens of Marlboro' and elsewhere.
The subject of this sketch, in early life, evinced
a thirst for knowledge, and suuered no obstacle
to deter ulm from its pursr.il. By perseverance
he lifted himself for college, and. in 1S47, entered
that once cherished Institution or learning, the
South Carolina College, then in its halcyon days,
under the brilliant administration of Its able
president, the Hon. winiam c. Preston. Arter
diligent application, he graduated honorably In
December A. D. ISSI, during which period of
training he acquired!! love add habit of study,
which conduced much to his subsequent distinc?
tion. For a vear or twfl after graduating he devo?
ted his time* to the instruction of yourh and to
general st tidy, believing a reasonable time spent
in the acquisition of knowledge to be highly desi?
rable and essential before cutering upon lils
Having finished this preparatory step, he re
sorted to the study of the ?nw, and became an tn
cessant and Indefatigable student of that profes?
sion. in 1S51 he'recetved his license asa lawyer
to practice In the Courts of South Carolina, and
In the same year was married to Marla Louisa,
daughter or thc late D. G. Joye, of Charleston. In
A. D. 1857. he was chosen Commissioner in Equi?
ty lor Marlboro", and rilled that important and
responsible oftlce with great ability, giving gene?
ral satlsffction to the public, until lSGf?. when lie
voluntarily left the same, to devote himself ex
elusively to the practice of law, his business hav
lng greatly accumulated upon his hunds. Of his
senior cotemporarles a: the Bar, some had died,
others had retired to agricultural pursuits, and
others, ajfaln, had been elevated to the Bench; so
that he found himself left to bear thc barden of
the business of the county, as the senior member
of the local Bar. His position made him a gnuie
and an example to his junior associates, who hail
no occasion to regret lils leadership.
In lS?? he was chosen by the citizens of Marl
boro' to represent them in the popular branch of
the General Assembly to till the unexpired term
of the Hon. J. C. Weatherly, who was promoted to
the State senate as successor to the Hon. W. D
Johnson, then called tothechauicry bench. In this
responsible position he displayed the same untir?
ing Industry and zeal which characterized him in
every previous station In life. He was an able,
useful and faithful servant to hts constituents,
and gave a good account of his stewardship. But
public life lie did not court, the busluesa of a law?
yer bel?g greatly more congenial to his mind.
And .though afterwards excluded from political
preferment by the disabling acts of Congress,
yet it ls a fact well known to **ls Immediate asso?
ciates, that had the way been left open to him, he
would not have sought otllce agaiu at Hie hands
of lils people, because of his fondness tor his pro?
Gladly would we, did our own limits permit,
give an extended view of lils life and character,
nun follow him, step by step, through a career
short, eventful and brilliant; but justice to lils
noble qualities of head and heart cannot be done
In the brief space ora.: obituary notice. He was
a ta ir fier, which ls enough to say of n man in our
count ry, where? the word means more thau lu
England For herc, it implies a knowledge of the
common, thc civil, natural, admiralty and stat?
ute laws; it means an advocate, a counsellor, at?
torney, solicitor and scrivener. The breadth and
depth of knowledge, the extent of reading and
diversity of acquirements requisite to make a suc?
cessful lawyer in this country, have always been
greater than in England, where, separated Into
classes, each with Its sphere well denned, thc pro?
fession enjoy thc benefit of a division of labor,
which brings great relief and makes success, In
any one brunch, so much easier. lu the choice
of'a profession, he wa3 fortunate. Possess?
ing a mind strictly legal, he was devoted to
his calling, and aspired to become a thoronqh
la'.riier. When overtaken by disease he was
rapidly realizing thc acme of lils hopes and am?
bition. He was a strong advocate, wielding great
influence with a Jury; but his great strength was
tn his indomitable zeal, courage, tact u;id skin
In the management of a cause, fron; Its ^origin to
Its termination. No client ever had occasion to
reproach him with neglect, lack of zea'., or want
of skill In thc management of bis cause. He gave
full satisfaction to thc sui'.or. Ills reputation as
a lawyer was established on a ilrm foundation,
and o'rdinarllv his counsel and advice was fl rat
sought In ail dilllcult and Intricate causes
arising in this couuty. His industry and toll
became contagious, aud forced hts compeers to
labor when otherwise they may have been idle.
His activity of mind was too great for his deli?
cate fra me, and dlsexse, aggravated by severe
application, out him down tu thc prime or life,
while in thc full tide of success. He was affable
and polite, kind, generous and benevolent, girted
with a genuine, unpretending hospitality, and a
genial, social disposition. Few men had so strong
a hold upon the atteetions of the people. He was
really a mau lor these troublous times-bold,
quick, sagacious, practical and public-spirited.
But a short time ago, yielding with reluctance
o the advice or physicians and rrlends, he sought
relier in the mild climate and balmy atmosphere
of Florida, but unfortunately too late.
The sad Intelligence of hrs death has spreads
gloom over our community. AU feel that a use?
ful man has gone; and Hie rich, the poor, high
and low, unite in expressions of sympathy with
the faith ful wife, who so tenderly ministered to
him in his last sutfering, and we Invoke Heaven's
blessings upon her and her little ones in their be?
reavement. His remains were burled In Magno?
lia Cemetery, in Charleston, S. JD., May 22,1S70.
Before death bc professed faith In Christ and
became a member of the Presbyterian Church.
May he rest in peace, reposing on tho bosom of
Beunettsville, S. C., May 28, 1870. H.

pSr LADIES WILL FIND RELIEF
from tlieir Headache, Costiveness, Swimming in
the Head, Colic, Sour Stomach, Restlessness tc,
Ac, by taking SIMMONS'S LIVER REGULATOR.
Persons living in unhealthy localities may avoid
all bilious attacks by taking a do?e of Simmons's
Liver Regulator occasionally, to keep the Liver in
healthy action. Ic should be used hy all person?,
old and young. It ls not unpleasant, Ls a purely
vegetable compound, ls not injurious to the most
delicate constitution, and will.keep the Liver in
ITEREE REQUISITES OF HEALTH.
If all the sickly people In the world were to take
to their beds, and demand medical treatment,
there would not be doctors enough to attend
them, nor a sufficient number of the robust to
nurse them. Three conditions are absolutely es?
sential to health, viz: a good appetite, easy diges?
tion, and thc ability to sleep soundly. Seven
elgltthsof the many thousands whosufferfrom In?
disposition, yet do not labor under serious dis?
ease, complain that they "can't eat," that their
stomachs are "out of order," or that they "don't
sleep well." Fo.- this class or ailments few per?
sons think of calling In a physician. Nor la lt ne?
cessary. Inasmuch as a course or HOSTETTER'S |
BITTERS will certainly relieve the derangements j
ol the stomach, the liver, and thc nervous system,
rrom which want or appetite, Indigestion and
sleeplessness arise. This excellent vegetable tonic
and corrective is also a dellghtlul anodyne. In?
somnia, (or incapacity to sleep,) which has resist?
ed al! thc ordinary remedies, will yield readily to
a dose of this pleasant sedative taken just
herore retiring to rest. In ordinary medical
practice lt ls usual to give a stomachic, an ape?
rient, an invlgorant, a soporific, or an antiseptic,
aa the case for the time being may seem more
particularly to require; but in this grand restora?
tive all these medicinal properties, and many
others, arc blended In due proportion. Tims the
ingestion la stimulated, while the bowels are regu
lated, the liver toned, the strength recruited, thc
nerves calmed, (lu: iluids purified, and the circu?
lation equalized. It ls believed that there is no
other restorative and regulating medicine In the
worm willoh acts so beneficially and agreeably
upon all the assimilating, and secretive organs at
thc same time; and to all who lack the three fun?
damental requisites of health and enjoyment, a
vigorous appetite, sound digestion and refresh?
ing sleep, It is confidently recommended as a
PS-A LUXURY OF THE PERIOD.
Regarded from the economic standpoint, SEA
MOSS FARINE appears to overshadow every
other vegetable nutrient. It contains, as we are
informed on good scientific, authority, nearly
ninety percent, of nourishing, fattening gelatine:
and or all gelatine suMltances used in cooking lt
is said to be the cheapest by over fifty percent,
as w#l atv the most digestive. We give these
statements, which are authenticated by the sig?
natures of men or eminent reputation, as vouch?
ers for the opinions we have ventured to express
on the economic Importance of the new article of
diet. As to Its deliciousness, the "proof or the
pudding Is in eating lt," and we reel confident,
that no man or woman who ha3 once eaten of a
blanc mange, pudding, custard, cream. Charlotte
Russe, or any other delicacy prepared with this
marine Godsend, will deny Its claim to rank
among the table luxuries of the period.
