BOWEN AND THE COUNTY TREASURY.-In the
Columbia Phoeuix o? yesterday we find, the
following communication from Representative
In yonr issue of this morning there appears
an article, cop'ed from THE CHARLESTON
NEWS, which reads as follows:
"Dividing the Spoils-A Lovely Row.-On
Saturday lash, the county treasurer reported
to the connty commissioners, as by law he ls
required do, that be bad twenty thousand dol
lars in the treasury subject to their disposition
Whereupon, as THE NEWS has-beer informed
by a prominent county official, the commis?
sioners first .religiously made out their own
accounts, and drew what they estimated was
due them to the uttermost farthing. Their wives
and other relatives in county offices were then
also paid up In full, not to mention a check
for seven hundred dollars to C. C. Bowen, for
services, the nature of which is not stated."
The facts of this transaction, Ur. Editor, are
simply these: Some time ago, being In need of
money, I applied to A. C. Richmond, E-q.,
clerk*!" the court for Gur?es ion County, for a
loan. He not having the money wbicn I re?
quired, assigned over to me a claim which he
held against the couniy. for services readereii.
This claim had been approved by'Judge Gra?
ham. For this tbe'oquqty commissioners gave
me a check, stating on its face that said check
was for services rendered the county by A. C.
Richmond, Esq. ; *
And now to all those sOre-headed grumblers
who hold fat offices. In Charl elton County and
wleh to obtain trie wherew?r?i.from the county
to lobby through a metropolitan police bili,
by which they were tobe made police com?
missioners, I will simply Bay, it they have
failed' in their undertaking,
"Let the galled Jade wince.
Our withers are nnwrung."
Axd when the time comes for ticir re-elec ion,
they will need something more than an in?
junction on the county treasurer to keep
others out of the places which they now oc?
cupy. Very respectfullyj C. C. BOWEN.

A MURDERER'S END.
Eifudon of Sam White for the Mar?
der of. AV. B- Fide*-Detalla of the
Awful Scene-Uow Ran Balden Re?
ceived the Tiding! of His Reprieve
The Lust Meeting of the Two Crimi?
nals, Sic., ?Sic.
Samuel White, the negro man convicted at
the last term of the Court of General Sessions
of the murder of W. B. Fidea, depot agent at
Oakley Station, on the Northeastern Railroad,
yesterday paid the penalty of bis crime by for?
feiting his life upon the gallows. The horrible
spectacle,-as usual, seemed to have a ?trange
fascination for the multitude, and the gatea of
the jail yard were besieged at an early hour
by crowds of men and boys anxious to see
the execution. The hanging, however, was,
In measure, private, hardly more than a hun?
dred persons besides the officials being pres?
ent. Admittance could be obtained only by a
pass from the sheriff. The weather was dark,
damp and cold, and masses of threatening
clouds shrouded the face of the sun, throwiog
a gloom over the fices of the shivering spec?
At the hour or eleven the sheriff ascended
the tower, where the felons are confined, and
found Sam White In the corridor preparing
for his doom. His countenance was of an
ashy, sickening hue ; but be listened with at?
tention to the words of the Rev. D. J. Qulgley,
of ihe Cathedral, who was his religious attend?
ant In this terrible hour. Balden had not
been informed of the commutation of his sen?
tence by the Governor, and, under the impres?
sion that he too was going out to be hanged,
was brought to While's cell, where the two
prisoners confronted each other. Balden here
asseverated his Innocence, and repeated that
he had nothing whatever to do with the mur?
der. Upon bein!? Interrogated as to Balden,
White confirmed this statement. As to him?
self, White declared that he had not killed Mr.
Fldea, bot that the man who committed the
crime had escaped. Boing asked who this
man was, he replied that he (White) was
going to die for the deed, and there was no use
in saying any more aboutit. He then asked to
be left alone with the priest during his last
The prisoners accordingly were left with
the priest, and the sheriff and his officers de?
scending to the yard, proceeded with the final
preparations. Taere was little to be done.
The heavy weight was on the spring, and a
strong one*inch rope was passed through the
lop piece, and tied securely to the weight.
The other eod hung down in the middle, be?
tween the posts. A small hempen rope, about
a third of an inch in diameter, was
quickly iashloned into a running noose,
ind fastened to the longer rope. The
weight was then let down once to
iscertain whether lt would draw the noose
io the required height, and having been again
replaced, everything awaited the coming of
ihe doomed man. In the meantime the neigh?
boring piazzas and house tops had become
crowded with curious, gazers. Among the
spectators was the father-in-law of the mur?
dered Fldea, who had come down and wanted
.'to see ihe thing done." Those within the
enclosure were now marshalled to the right
ind lefc ol the gallows, and soon a subdued
murmur told that the prisoner was coming.
He was attended by the priesr, and was neatly
freshed in a white shirt and pair of brown
pants. He wore no hat or coat, and his shirt
collar was thrown back, revealing his muscular
aeck. - He walked with a firmness which belled
:he pallor of his face. On arriving at the
foot of the gallows he was confronted by
Sheriff Mackey, who read the sen'lenee of the
jourt, atftd telling him that he was about to
je executed lor the crime, asked If he had
inytbiog to Fay. White, who had a chew of
tobacco In his mouth, cleared his throat, and,
Kith a shake of bis head, said he had
.nothing." The prisoner now knelt with the
priest upon the damp ground, and prayed long
ind with mush apparent fervor, the specta?
tors standing hushed and with uncovered
beads. At the end the wrclched man arose,
ind taking another chew of tobacco, stood
tyeing with apparent defiance the prepara?
tions for his death. While doing this he con?
tinually spoke with ihe priest, and at length
broke forth into a hymn. He was now
Hide to stand directly under the fatal
noose, and while his bands and feet were
being secured he addressed himself to
various persons present, particularly one
of the turnkeys, whom he exhorted
Lo repent and meet him in heaven, and to
whom he also* gave a chew of tobacco, and
asked him to pray for the giver while u-ing if.
Se then prayed aloud with the priest, and this
being ended the sheriff stepped forward and
io"j usted a white stockinet cap over the pris?
oner's head and face. AB lt came over hts
mouth, White asked them to stop until he
:ould spit out his chew of tobacco, and having
lone so the cap was fitted on. The noose was
;hen tightened gradually around the neck, and
he knot adjusted wilh care beneath the left
jar. He stool thus for. a moment wheo
he sheriff gave the signal. The Jack
Ketch give a quick pull to the rope
ittached to the iron spring, and while the
weight came down with a crash into the
ieep hole, the body of White was Jerked vio
ently upward, within:a few inches of the
:ross-plece of the gallows, and then came
lown wilh a heavy thud. The rope tightened
md cut into the*h?ck as the body swayed
Toin side to sid* in .muscular contortions.
Por about three minutes, the strong life strug?
gled within the body, and heavy sighs could
>e beard. Then thu limbs grew still, and the
vldely distended eyes cpufci. be seen beneath
he stockinet cap as the? almost burst from
he sockets. A small trace of blood was visi?
le upon the cap, where the latest breath had
eft the mouth, and the motionless 4>ody
wung slowly around and faced the vast as?
semblage on a neighboring piazza,' BB if in
item rebuke of their Idle curiosity.
It was Balden'a turn nextv and, all uncon?
scious of his reprieve, he was brought out
ipon the scene with the body of White dang?
ing from the tree before his eyes. His ghast
y pallor was terrible to look upon, and the
sheriff hastened to read the Governor's pro
)lamation. As he read, the prisoner for the
drat time began to realize his escape, and the
spasmodic movements of his body wer curiouse
.0 behold. He began slowly at first to move
rom side to side, rising a little; then he rose
ilgber and higher by Btarts, as If each beat of
bis heart sent him up to the air, until he was
lurned away and led reeling back to hhs pris?
on house. He will be conveyed to the peni?
tentiary as soon aa possible.
The body pl.wlfltelhung for thirty minutes^
?nd was then cjjtSown. Dr. Robert Lebby
md the physician ol the Jail, Dr. Bosemoa,
then mad? an examination, and, finding life
quite extinct, the body was turned over to the
coroner to be burled at Potters' Field. The
neck had been dislocated, but not broken,
Joseph E. Johnson, a colored man, acted os
Tack Ketch on the occasion. He was a spe?
cial detective on the loree during the official
term of Lieutenant Philippy.

The Second Thomas Concert.
The weather waa not much better yesterday
than on Thursday, but the Academy of Music
was filled tact night by as enthusiastic an audi?
ence as we have ever -seen In Charleston.
Every number In the programme was heartily
applauded, but the demands of the audience
were only complied with in two instances
the concert) for violin by Mr. Llatemann, and
Rubensteln's famous caprice, by Miss Krebs.
The chorus and march from Lohengrin,
which closed the first parr, was a new revela?
tion to Charleston. It was listened to with
breathless attention, and cheered vociferous
[ ly. Schubert's theme and variations appeared
to move the audience proloundly, and Mr.
Listemann's rondo was received in a way
that induced him to gratify the audience a
second time. How long ls lt since so accom?
plished a.violinist ha9 played In Charleston !
Strauss's valse, delivered with indescribable
grace and fire, caused eyes to spark le and
heads to wave a'l over the house. Gounod's
ealtarello, grandly played, concluded the per?
formance. The allegro from Beethoven's
eighth symphony was the gem of the eve?
Miss Krebs was more successful, if that be
possible, than in the first concert. She bas
taken the city by storm.
At the request of a number of amateurs,
who appreciate fine classical music, we beg
Mr. Thomas to aid to his programme for the
concert to-ni?ht the Nacht Gesang of Jean
Vogt. This, by courtesy of Mr. Thoma?, might
be given as an encore.
The Matinee This Afternoon.
There will be a Thomas matin?e at two
o'clock this afternoon, when the price of ad?
mission is reduced to one dollar. The pro- j
gramme ls as follows:
Overture-"Martha," Flotow ; Andante
First Symphony, Beethoven ; Invitation ? la
Danse, Weber, (Instrumentalion by Hector
Berlioz ;) Capriccio, B. Minor, op. 22, Mendels?
sohn ; Miss Marie Krebs and Orchestra ; Intro?

(by request) Schumann ; Waltz-Thousand
and One Night, Strauss ; Prayer-"Moses in
Egypt,'' BjtBlnl; Polka Mazurka, Devil's
Darning Needle, and Polka Schnell, Thunder
and Lightning, Strauss ; March-"Dueppler
"Anything more attractive than this could
hardly be found. We shall be disappointed if |
the Academy is not crowded to suffocation.
The Concert To-Night.
The last concert of the Thomas Company
takes place to-night. This, after the matin?e,
is the only remaining opportunity of hearing
the finest orchestra in America. We need say
The blind negro pianist bad a much larger
audience last evening than at the two previ?
ous concerts. Tom, as usual, seemed In the
best of spirits, and played delightfully. His
Binging wa*, also, much applauded; and his
spelling brought down the house. One of his
most amusing acts ls spelling out the name ol
Borne article by the notes on the plano. One
of the audience holds up a handkerchief, for
instance, and the manager strikes a few notes
from which Tom spells the name of ihe arti?
cle with astonishing gusto. His lost concert
In this city takes place this evening.

lizer at the lowest cost uo consumers, this Gnano
ls put into market this season at the above re?
duced price, which the Company Is enabled to do
by reason ot Its large facilities ana the redaced
coat of manufacture.
The supplies put into market this Season are, aa
.heretofore, prepared under the personal superin?
tendence of Dr. st. Julian Ravenel, Chemist of
the Company, at Charleston. S. C., hence plantera
may rest assured tnat its quality and composition
ls precisely the same as that heretofore sold.
At the present low price, every acre planted
can ce fertilized with 200 pounds Gnano ata cost
not exceeding the present value of 80 poonda of

crop 1B increased by the application from two to 1
threefold the natural capacity of the soil, hence
nnder no condition could ita application fall to
compensate for the outlay.
