LEXINGTON. October 13.
This community was plunged into profound
sorrow upon the announcement of the death
ot General Lee. The varions church tells
were tolled, and a general suspension of the
duties at Washington College, the "Virginia
Military Institute, and the minor schools tc>ok j
place. They will not resume until -after the '
. funeral ot the great chieftain. Every business
house was closed, and crape affixed to the
doors. Even the colored barbers shut tip
their shops, and s general expression of grief
. was visible.
Washington College, the college chapel,
the Virginia Military Institut- and the Episco?
pal Church, where -trouerai Lee worshipped,
werj draped io moerniug a lew hours alter
j i s death.
General Lee had "beeu almost entirely un?
conscious since Monday night, and expired
. very peacefully at half-past 9 o'clock Wednes-;
day morning. He was first taken sick on'
Wednesday evealng, September 28, "while Just
about to sit -down to tea, when he suddenly
sank in bis chair insensible. He soon re?
vived, and In, the cohrse of ti, next ten
days steadily improved, until it was hoped he
was out of danger; but on Monday evening
last he became suddenly and rapidly worse,
and continued to sink until Wednesday morn?
ing. During the early part of his sickness he
slept much and spoke but little; but was ra?
tional when awake, and always recognized
those who approached him. At times his
mind seemeu lor awhile to wander,-end on
several occasions reverted to the army.
He once ordered his tent to be-struck,
and at another time ordered that Hill
should be sent lor. He suffered but little, and
died wlthout'a struggle. He will be burled on
Saturday, October 15, at 12 o-clock. The place
selected for-his interment is a vault beneath
the college chapel, which stands in the midst
ot the college grounds. This was the fret
btrildhig erected after his removal to Lexing?
ton, General Lee having declared that lt was
proper that the first thing the college did
should be-to dedicate a house to the ser?
vice of -religion. Here he- -will appro?

ments of his later years, his remains sentInel

THE THARLN MEETING IUST NIGHT.-Ma?
sonic Hall was ^pretty well filled' last night,
chiefly by persons who were curious to hear
what Mr. R. S, Tbarin, tho "people's" candi?
date for Congress, might have to say of the
Ring and its rascalities. The meeting was or-,
ganlzedby calling-Mr. L. D. Turner to the
chair. Mr. Turner introduced Mr. Thar!n, who
spoke for more-than-aa hour, handling the
Scott administration without gloves, and giv?
ing an inside 'View bi its notorious corruption
and profligacy. 'At* the close of the address,
resolutions denouncing the conspicuous un?
worthiness-of Bowen and DeLarge, and eulo?

were declared unanimously adopted.
FIRE OK ASHLEY RIVER.-A destructive fire
occurred on'Friday last at the works of tbe
Ashley Phosphate Mining Company, on Ash?
ley River, about eighteen miles Irom the city.
The steam engine and the phosphate works
were destroyed. The origin of the fire -is
unknown, but it is supposed to have been the
work af sm incendiary, as the superinten?
dent of the works states that he saw
all ol the' furnaces emptied at the close
of the day's work, and that a short time
after, while passing the engine-room, he
vainly-endeavored to And a stray coal with
whick to light bis pipe. He ls, therefore,
positive that there was no fire on the premises
at dark. -At about 10 o'clock the fire was dis?
covered. A day or two previous, the superin?
tendent had a quarrel with some of the hands,
about a- small sum of money, and the fire may
have been set out of revenge. The loss will
probably amount to $7000, on which there4s
THI'RABICAL DEMONSTRATION LAST NIGHT.
1 he Sing managers in this city got up a torch?
light procession last night, which, atter a ,
maren -down Meeting street, from theneigh
borhood ot the Citadel Square, formed a meet?
ing in front of the City Hall, the steps of
which were lighted up lor the occasion by the
lamps-which are kept burning at the expense of
our already overtaxed. citizens. We reviewed
this noisy turn-out from the steps of the. Mar?
ket Hall. The line ot the procession was at
least forty yards In length, and Included
about two hundred and fifty boya, and, perhaps,
one hundred men, among whom were liberally
distributed some forty torches of lightwood
and a.few tin lamps fastened upon poles. Some
of the more earnest laborers for the? "cause"
bore the burdens of seven shabby transpa?
rencies and five Chinese lanterns. The first
transparency bore an invitation to the keeper
of the penitentiary to "Come out on the 19th
for R. K. Scott." The other mottoes were
mysterious. One, for example, a large round
one, was, "WE Will Role. WHoT wE. wlNe.
on- Wtmsdey nlGht"
Arrived at the City Hall, the meeting came
to order with a yell such as only some hun
dred boys let loose could utter, and the Rev.
Mr. Hunter was chosen to preside over the
assemblage. A few men who were present,
called upon Hon. D. T. Corbin, who, to the
evident dissatisfaction of almost the entire
party, spoke for some time. He closed his
speech with the . remark that he had
already spoken more than he should
have done, a sentiment that was received
with uproarious applause. The president
then introduced Collector George W. Clark,
who was greeted with significant confusion, and
cries oj; "We dont want to hear him." He
seemed, however, to want 'to be heard, and
succeeded la makiog a harangue remarkable
for nothing except its exceeding venom.
He .was frequently interrupted. One
victim yelled out that "The Republi?
can party is not worth a d-n. They
put my wife in Jail while I was absent
'rom her working for them." By this time
many of the assembly became disgusted and
about one-third of them left. At the conclu- ]
?lon of Clark's remarks, Dr. Bosemen -was '
jailed upon and made a short speech. He .was l
followed by Congressman C. C. Bowen, who
said In the course of his remarks, that he tad
Deen informed that certain parties would be
tppoiated to count the votes who would count
bern to suit themselves, and elect their own
mrty. His advic? was that the Republican
larty should not submit to it, but should see j
hat the votes are counted fairly, and they call
ipon the commissioners and insist that the "'
?otes be counted in the presence of men
rho can be relied on. Republicanism,
ic said, would be a mockery, lt
he votes are not fairly counted. He
ras informed that one of the parties
^pointed to count the votes offers to bet that
, certain candidate will be elected. DeLarge t
iad offered to'turn the management of the
ind commission over to him, if he (Bowen)
-ould consent to withdraw his candidacy for
longress. In his (Bowen's) opinion, if there
I anything to be deprecated in South Caroll
a, lt is the land commission. Tim Hurley
illowed next in a characteristic spc;ch. He
lid that the Republican party could ti ot afford, j
ecause they are in the majority, to have it
lld thtt they secured their election by fraud, j
nd that ha was determined to have every ballot
i the boxes counted for the man for whom it
:as cast. Hurley was followed by the Rev. t
[. H. Hunter and others, and the meeting
roke up before midnight. Hurley and Bowen
rere the only speakers during the evening
rho were listened to with ordinary attention.

In those cases that have come before them,
are of the opinion that the present system of
administering Justice through trial Justices la
very expensive to the county and State from
the number of trivial cases brought forward,
and which end only In expense to the State;
and the grand jury do present: That If this
system be continued, a tariff of charges should
be established for their government in all
cases that come under the jurisdiction ot the
trial justices, whether as to fines imposed or
charges as expenses, and for the prevention
of all abuses from any causes whatever.
The grand Jury do say and present-That the
county treasury has not been conducted prop?
erly; in this, that a system of preference In re?
gard to the payment of checks without due re?
gard to rotation of dates or presentation has
been practiced to the detriment of public and
private Justice, and calculated to weaken the
confidence of the public in that Impartial Jus?
tice of the State which ls the right of all Its
Furthermore, the Jurors do complain and
present-That the small amounts paid to Jurors
and witnesses In attendance on court are, and
have been, relused payment at the county
treasury, compelling the holders to remain un?
paid or to submit to a discount, which is a
scandal to the credit of the county.
And the grand Jury prays the Interference
or the court to put a stop al once to such pro?
Finally, the grand Jury feel compelled to
present the county treasurer, John R. Stall,
for malfeasance in office.
The grand jury do present, that they sum?
moned the chairman of thc board before them,
for the purpose ot examining into the busi?
ness, receipts and expenditures, and also as to
how much has been paid, and the amounts
now due. But upon repeated demands, he
still evaded the examination, and from the
testimony before the grand jury, we are satis?
fied that lt becomes a necessity to present, and
we do present, F. C. Miller, chairman of the
board ot county commissioners, and ?. P.
Wall and M. McLaughlin, lor malfeasance In
The thanks of the grand Jury are tendered
to the officers o? the court for their courteous
attentions and cheerful compliance to all de?

FOR CORONER, E. M. WHITINO, ESQ.-Messrs.
Editors : Belie ving that this ls no time to re?
move from office an efficient officer who has
long and faithfully served the public, and who,
by his energy, courtesy, uniform kindness and
consideration, has giren universal satisfaction
to the entire community, we would respect?
fully nominate E. M. Whiting, Esq., as a can?
didate tor the office of Coroner ol Charleston
County at the ensuing election.
oct6 MANY CITIZENS.
To THE VOTERS OP CHARLESTON COUNTY.
AB the convention of the Union Reform party,
which assembled on the 3d ol October, was
only authorized to nominate candidates for the
Senate, the House of Representatives, School
Commissioners and County Commissioners,
and as the question ot the election of coroner
did not arise before thc primary meetings
which elected the delegates to that conven?
tion, my friends have seen flt to nominate me
as au old and faithful Incumbent to that
office, I have offered to Mr. E. L. Roche-who
cannot claim a regular nomination lor the rea?
sons above given, the lol lo win g propositions,
to wit : That each of us should select three
friends who should be authorized to call In an
umpire; that they should decide upon the
question of who should be the candidate- for
the office, and that both of us should abide by
the result. Mr. Roche has seen flt perempto?
rily to refuse, and I have no other recourse
than to offer myself as a candidate tor the
office In which I have been tried and not found
wanting, and to solicit the suffrages of my fel?

A CARO FROM MB. E. L. ROCHE.-Tb the
Voters of Charleston County ;-In reply to
the card of Mr. E. M. Whitioe, I beg leave to
say that at the convention of the Union Re?
form Party, which assembled on the third of |
October, at Hibernian Hall, be was a candidate
for tho Domination of that convention for the
office ol Coroner, and every effort was made,
both by himself and his friend-), to secure tho
I was placed in nomination and elected, and
received fifty-one (51) votes, Ur. Whiting re
03?ving twenty-six (.26) votes.
No iv, Mr. Whiting announces himself as an
independent candidate, and solicits the suf?
frages of bis fellow-citizens. He thus en?
deavors to defeat the*voice of the convention,
and to divide its friends. I am satisfied this
effort will fail.
Tho voters of this county will determine
whether-where uuity and harmony ar:- essen?
tial to success-they will countenance any
attempt to produce division and disorganiza?
tion in tho ranks of our party by a defeated
candidate for the nomination.
