THE FACTS IN REGARD TO THE KILLING OF
NASH AT COKESBURY.
[SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE NEWS.]
Cor. ui'EI A, Tuesday, February 14.
The facts of-the wholesale mob-murders in
Union Couuty seem to be about as follows : A
number of mounted men-supposed te be about
Ave hundred-appeared at Union Courthouse
about 12 o'clock Sunday nlgbt, and proceeded to
the jail. They demanded the keys from Jailor
Hushes and Deputy Sherill Hill, who refuged to
surrender them. Mrs. Hughes was then cate?
chised as to the whereabouts of the keys, but,
being greatly alarmed,, did not answer-meiely
pointing to a bureau, where they were deposited.
The drawers were immediately opened, the keys
obtained, the Jail doors opened, and ten colored
prisoners (under indictment, for the Stevens mur?
der) ^ere carried to the banging ground-about a
mlle and a half from the town-when six of the
party were shot, two hung, and two "turned np
missing." The jailor and deputy sheriff were
carried on* from the jail ab o nt a mlle, and tied in
front of the sherltPa residence. After the jailor
had been bound, a letter, carefully written, was
placed In his pocket, signed K. K. K., und con?
taining these words : "Whereas, 1: is donbted
. that Thomas intended remo?log the prisoners
from a place of fair trial, the people were com?
pelled to administer Justice themselves." "Let
nr. thy right hand know what thy left hand
doeth !" "Moloch will have his victims even If
Michael of Justice must have his martyrs I"
Sheriff Dunn, of Union, reports that the name?
or the persons shot were Bill Flncher, Joe Van
Lean, Bart Edwards, Ellison Scott, Thomas
Byers and Aaron Eusris, and of those hung Sj 1
vanns Wright and Andy Thompson.
There is no clue to the perpetrators. A writ of
habeas corpus had been served upon Sheriff Dunn
to bring three' of the prisoners before Judge
Thomas, in Columbia, but owing to some infor?
mality had not been obeyed/ The lynching has
caused great excitement ia Columbia, and ls uni?
versally denounced as an infamous outrage by
all classes, Irrespective of politics.

The Killing of H mr y Nash at Cohei.
'ThePbosalx contains the following letter:
COKE8BPBT, February 13.
There was, unfortunately, a difficulty ta our
town, on .-a'unlay, which resulted in the death
of Henry Nash, a colored mao, one or our county
commissioners. An altercation sprang up be?
tween him and two yoong men. L. F. Connor and
J. M. Moore, at the backdoor of one or our stores,
np on? being present to hear what was Bald.
Firing or pistols commenced, Nash retreating,
tbe other two" pursuing, firing ar him,
and he reluming the fire a- he ran. I was at
another store, about one , hundred yards of? and
as soin as I learned what was going on I rushed
out flpldst danger-for he was running towards
tba: store, and the artag.being in that direction
-and succeeded in stopping it. Nash went into
the store, and I tallowed him to see what injury
was inflicted. He lay down upon the fljor, and I
requested Dr. Gary, wbo happened to be present,
to examine him, which he did. saying that he
was mortally wounded. During this excitement
the young men left on horseback. I, as inten?
dant of the town, issued a warrant for their ar?
rest soon after, but they had fled. Tne next
morning, early, a warrant was Issued by Triai
lattice Hemphiu, and put into the tanda ol the
sheriff or the county. -
Such occurrences are greatly deplored by all
gool ci tuc us and lovers of .peace and order. I
Sive you this statement, as such occurrences are
apt to be exaggerated. Two weeks ago there was
an occurrence greatly exaggerated-the shooting
of Ed. But er by Gilkerson. They were-brought
before the town council, and the two colored men
who were present wbeu the shooting was done
testified, npon oath, that ta their opinion it was
purely accidental-that there was no quarrelling,
no difficulty between the parties.

THE WORK OF THE LEGISLATURE.
[FROM OUR ' OWN " COKSESPONDKNT. ]
COLUMBIA, February. 13.
The sessions in both branches of the Gene?
ral Assembly to-day were or a protracted nature;
and boisterous debates were frequent.
A STORMY SCENE.
Few persons, who aie ta the habit or visiting
the senate, would have recognized ta the clamor?
ous assemblage of this afternoon and evening
tbat generally peaceful and busJaess-llke branch
of the General As-cmbly. The cause of the- dis?
turbance was, the question or* the legality of
Senator McIntyre's seat. Thc matter was called
up about half-past 1 o'clock, and Messrs Hayne,
Swaljjs and Mcxwcll, occupied the floor of the
Senate until 3 o'clock, on a question to Indefinite?
ly postpone the committee report. ' A motion to
adjourn, made at that time, was lost, and
Leslie then took the floor, and held it until 8
o'clock this evening. He impasslonately review?
ed the whqlc case. The points made by h'm were,
that it was not probable McIntyre had sent ta
his resignation as- postmaster when he said
he did: and that he, ta law and practice, held
that office on November loth, and that he also
heldadipnty United States marsh als hip at md
after the election. Maxwell's case was freely dis?
cussed in the early part of the debates, and quot?
ed as a reason why McIntyre shbnld be seated.
Leslie explained that the difference in the two
cases was: In Maxwell's case the contestant, a
Reformer, had neglected to show that his resig
nation had not been received at Washington till
after tue election, and ta McIntyre's case lt ls
shown by a letter from the Postmaster-General
that his resignation was received there onthetoth
day of November. During the latter part of Les?
lie's speech considerable confusion, occurred
through members attempting to wrest the floor
ffom him for the purpose of forcing a vote. After
a quarter of an hour's repeated rapping with the
gavel, tb? chairman. Mr. Montgomery, restored
'-hinter, and on a call of the Senate it was ascertain?
ed that a quorum was not present, whitemore
moved that the sergeant-at-arms be Instructed to
bring In absentees, and after some elapse of time
he moved that six assistants be appointed to go
through tbe city and arrest absent members. Ar?
nold moved to amend by iuserting, "and
bring supper ta for thc senators present "
During the absence of the sergeant-at
arms and his assistants several of the
senators amused themselves by making speeches
on various subjects, which they generally wound
up bv declaring they would stay until the first or
March, bat they would have a vote. Whtttemore
declared the scene disgraceful, and said that lt
was not common sense, but the effusions or liquor
senators were compelled to ltsten to. Arnim
"AhfiMr. Senator, say spirits; ^oan't say liquor."
Abo?9o'clqpK several senators arrived, under
the escort ortho deputies, A quorum being pres
ent sparring recommenced, and Anally lt came to
a vote, leslie and McIntyre not voting, a quorum
did not vote, and another call of the rou was or?
dered by the chair. This time McIntyre voted for
himself, and was consequently seated b; a vote
of lonrteen to three, jost a quorum voting. The
adoption of a motion to lay oa the table a motton
to reconsider prevents the matter being brought
up hereafter, and McIntyre ls consequently secure
from further molestations.
THE LAND COMMISSION.
The concurrent resolution requiring the land
commissioner to rrake a full report or his trans?
actions by the l?th instant, adopted In the House
on Saturday, came up in the Senate shortly arter
roll-call, and elicited considerable spicy debate.
Leslie said DeUrge would not make a report, and
even if he did, frauds were not put on paper, and
the man that was mean enough to steal, would
be mean enough to lie about it. Whlttemore
thought the easiest way io settle lt would be to
take the books or the commission and place them
in the hands of a committee.
Leslie (smiling.) What bo;k will you find the
fr ands ia ? It was final y agreed to adopt the res?
olution, and should the commissioner fail to com?
ply, to take legal steps to compel him to make a

. Trw LADIES' MEMORIAL FAIB.-Our readers
are aware that there ls now progressing, at Hi?
bernian Hall, a fair, whose holy object shonld ap?
peal to the hearts as well as purses of every Caro?
linian. The prime object of this fair, as we have
repeatedly said before, bat cannot too earnestly
reiterate, ls to procure a sufficient sum to remove
the remains of sixty gallant men or this State,
who wore the grey, and who died under the
"Southern Cross" at Gettysburg. The attendance
at this fair has not been as great as the eise war?
rants. There should be a crowd, and a grand
crowd, at Hibernian Ua'l every evening till th :
The tables are arrayed with a thousand-attrac?
tive articles which can tempt ilse eye, and the
ladles in charge, while enthusiastic in their duty,
are neither persecuting nor extort lunate. Among
the most pleasing and novel features, we may
mention at this time, more particularly, the mag?
nificent "art co'lection," embraciag curiosities
from all the habitable globe, and from some
places nevor reached save by Dr. Livingstone.
This department ls administered by a most
charming lady, whose wit 13 really thc greatest
wonder of all.
On some or tho tables gooda are really selling
at prices cheaper than at the stores. The enter?
prising ladies conducting these tables are deter?
mined to realize a certain sum as rapidly as
possible, and so charge for their beautiful and
useful articles prices almost sacrificial.
There Is every Inducement to go to this lair.
Patriotism calls; duty calls; bright eyes and lovely
faces call; the voices of our dead call upon the
We hope that Hibernian Hall, which ia opened
nora Tour in the ?rternooa till eleven at night,
will be thronged this evening, anl continue tobe
thronged throughout the week.
