COLUMBIA, 8. C., November 12.
To the Editor of the Baily Union:
My attention oavlog been just called to the
following paragraph, puollshed In THE
CHARLESTON DAILY NEWS of yesterday, I re?
spectfully ask space In yonr columns for the
purpose of replying thereto: .
''Congressman Elliott (colored,) who IB set J
down a? a candidate, will probably withdraw
at the right time In favor of one of the two
other aspirants-most likely 'honest' John.
Io any event, look tor an exciting Ume when
the Senatorial fight comes on."
Now, Mr. Editor, permit me to Bay that
there is not the slightest semblance ot truth
In the above paragraph. I am a candidate lor
tbe position of United states Senator from this
State, and shall remain a candidate until the
final vote shall have been reached by the Gen?
eral Assembly. Underlying my candidacy IB

which I am determined, so lar as I am able,
to have assert/ d.
Again, Mr. Editor, I have been informed
that ihe story is being circulated that it is my J
intention to withdraw In favor of Mr. J. J.
Patterson. I do most openly brand this ru?
mor as an arrant He, set afloat for the purpose
of strengthening the chances of others Inter?
ested in the struggle. I defy any man to say
that he has ever even dared to obtrude hts
miserable carcass upon my presence tor the
purpose ol Intimating lu the slightest manner
any such corrupt bargain. I am a candidate
lo good faith, and shall so continue to the end.
To those who know me, lt ls unnecessary to
say anything; but I deem it a matter of Justice
to the public, as well as to myself, to at once
brand this mendacious lie with the stigma
that ll deserves. I am determined to have
the question at once settled as to whether the
lack of money shall exclude men from office,
or whether those qualitlea alone that can con?
scientiously appeal to the higher sensibilities
of our manhood shall prevail. My every effort
shall be to have the whole people of this
State, as well as of the entire country, under?
stand whether or not ibo performance of the
pledges recently made by the Republican
party shall be foreshadowed by the blighting
influence of a purchased seat in the Senate of

iFEOtt OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
MARION, 8. C., November 12.
The Presidential election excited no Interest j
among the whites, though the colored voters,
and of course their few white associates, ral?
lied en masse for Grant and Wilson. At some
polls not a Bingle Greeley vole was cast, and
the falling off In our Conservative vote
throughout the county ls over 1900. The Re?
publicans polled within 50 votes of ihe highest
vote received by any of their candidates at
the October election. The following was the
vole cast: For Grant and Wilson electors,
each, 2147 votes; Greeley and Brown 428;
whit? vole 588; colored vole 2287. The ma?
jority of Greeley votes were polled at this
town, though even here there was a much
lighter vole by the Conservatives than was |
cast last October.
Much depression has been produced in this j
county by the result of the recent elections,
but lt is to be boped that this will not last.

qualified or given bonds. Nothing HIBB of In?

THE SPIRIT OF THE PRESS,
WHAT THE LIBERAL JOURNALS SAY
ABOUT GREELEY'S DEFEAT.
The Great Work of the Liberal Coali?
tion Only Begun*
[From the Springfield (Vasa.) Republican.]
There was a good deal of philosophy In the
apparently absurd remark ot the Irishman
about his pig, that it did not weigh as much
a? he expected.?and he never thought it would.
It is not Inapplicable lo the stale of mind of
the more sanguine friends of the reform cause
over the result, of its first campaign. Il has
not done so well HS they expected ID July; but
it has achieved all they ever had the right to
anticipate irom it. It encountered mistakes
and misfortunes within itself; lt was confront?
ed by formidable prejudices and deep distrust
and powerful interests from without. Its prin?
ciples were more widely accepted than ils can?
didacy. But even in the hour of Us first
defeat lt. is only just to say that the reform I
movement i teen was not only a logical neces-1
slty ot our political situation, but one of
the most hopeful Blgns of our political
life. As nature ia always seeking to
purity and regenerate Itself, so a repub?
lic-unless in hopeless decay-must forever
be striving for improvement without and
publication within. The Liberal undertaking
nought to give expression to the need and de-1
sirablllty, first, of the reorganization of politi?
cal parties-the dissolution of those which re?
presented the conflicts of the last Alteen or
twenty years, and the creation of a new, in
which the voters who had been so long-and so
often In bitter antagonism should And them
selves In harmony on new questions of and co
operating for new objects. Second, BB part
and result of this, the reconciliation ot the
sections and of the races, that the dispute
over slavery and the civil war have brought
into such sharp conflict. The perpetuation of I
the divisions of the war and slavery is incom?
patible with the health and safety of the re
public. They must be composed or the repub?
lic will suffer in Integrity and In prosperity. The
great body of the Liberals la this campaign
are also pledged by their sincerity to help on I
this work In whatever field and in whatever
form lt presents itself. They have no reason
to be otherwise than proud of the character of
their position and the history of their efforts I
during the past year. But they have no right
to perpetuate any personal or party animosi
ties and rivalries that the campaign has de- I
veloped to the damage of the reforms they
have sought to gain. They will walt wllh In-1
terest, with hope and with sympathy the re
suit of ihe faith and the labors of those who, j
believing with them In ends, yet have remain
ed in the Republican party; and if these men
fall, and their hopes turn io disappointment,
they will give greeting and co-operation lo
the further division and the new reorganiza?
tion of parties by which-as lt now seems
this necessary reconstruction ol our politics
and these reforms in the admlnstratlon 01 the
government are to be achieved. The results
are essential. The agencies are of little
moment. Time will secure the one; occasion
will develop? the other.
ii rant's Blunders and Illa Opportunity
-Both Parties Liberalized.
[From the Cincinnati commercial ]
President Grant will not, perhaps,,be much
obliged to us for our good wlBhes, but we hope
he will be able to repair In his second term I
the blunders that discredit his first. And we
will venture, In our high capacity as a dlsln-1
terested observer and Independent well
wisher, to suggest to bim that lt would be the
part of wisdom for bim not lo regard his re
election exclusively In the light of a personal
triumph and vindication. He ought to be
aware that his champions through this cam-1
palgn have had a hard time In excusing the
weakness and fallings on bis part whloh they I
have been constrained to acknowledge. The I
tone of bis advocates has been in many re-1
spects necessarily apologetic. This has been
especially so In regard lo his personal vanities
and indulgencies- his estimation of hla elec-1
lion. In the first place, as a personal compll- I
ment-his view of ihe public patronage as an |
aoriferoos placer tor the use and benefit of his
relatives and favorites-bis concern for mere
personal acquaintances rather than for those
who had done the State or the party, or both,
some service. 1
The Liberal Republican movement ls not a
failure. It has liberalized the Republican
party, and Its Influence will temper the Ad-1
ministration for the next four years for good. I
It has also liberalized the Democratic party,
and put out of the way forever irritating Is- ]
sues and dogmas that were dangerous. The
missionary Tabor of the campaign on bolh I
sides has been excelleat. Much bas been
dono In the removal of the asperities of party I
differences, and In harmonizing ihe an iago-1
nlsts ofakher days over the questions of this
day toward the homogeneity of tho American
people-a work of Inestimable beneficence. j
The Party of the Future.
[From the Louisville Courier Journal.]
Weare Democrat?, Jeffersonian. Jacksonian I
Democrat, and, therefore, we propose to ad
r ero to Liberalism. On ihe success nt that
principle depend the restoration ot local seit
government, of nationality, and the reconclil
allon of the people ot ail seo Hons ot the
Union. It would be treason to reject the co- f
operation of Carl Schurz, Lyman Trumbull, I
Horace Greeley. Gratz Brown, and the otter
patriotic Republicans wllh whom the campaign
which ls Just over has associated us-treason
against the people and agalDst republican free-1
dom; and we shall certainly be guilty ot no
BOCO, crime. j
To go baok to the old party alignments would
be tantamount to assuring the continuance of
the Radical party lo power, and the country
has already bad a great deal more of that [
party's domination than Is good lor lt. For (
twelve years tbe Democratic party bas been j
constantly defeated, and without a change of
base it would be defeated to the end of time. I
The questions which were at issue between
the Democratic and Republican parties have
all been settled, and there can be na good rea?
son for their being reopened. We do not pro
pose to reopen them. The Liberal parly, with
the platiorm of State rights and civil service I
reform, and In which ibe beet and purest men
of the old Republican party are ready to unite
with the Democrats in the cause of patriotism,
furnishes some hopes of ultimate escape Irom I
the wretched ihraldom In which we are held,
and we are not such Idiots as to decline to
avail ourselves of our last and only chance.
We propose no new party, no new organi-1
zation, no new name. We propose simply to
stand where we are. We have already a plat
form of principies and an organization. Wei
do not propose to change them. They answer

The Northern Democracy Never Really
Approved of Greeley.
[From the Public Legder, Philadelphia, Pa.]
The rush of the prominent politicians of the
Democratic party towards Mr. Greeley in the
interval between the Cincinnati and Baltimore
Convent lons was an advent without a paral-1
lei for Hs seeming unanimity and spontaneity.
Tn ere was a whirl of excitement. that carried
away the hearts of a great many people. On I
the surface, everything looked like the up- I
heaval of a political revolution. So lt con un-1
ued to look down lo the time of the Baltimore
nom i nal lon; but soon after that it became
plato enough to those who were not willing to
delude themselves that the movement lacked
ene great element of a r?volution. While the
masses of the Democratic party in those close-1
ly-balanced Middle States, whose votes were
tb decide the election, gave the approval ot I
their voices to the aotloo of their delegates at
Bal timi ire, their hearts were never lu the btisl-1
ness. To them the nomination of Mr. Greeley,
whom they bad onlv known as the bitterest re
viler of them and their organizan on, was an un
natural thing. In ihe States to which we have
referred, and notably In this State, they never
gave a genuine approval to what was done at
The Passive Policy Should have been
Adopted at Bal tl m ors. j
[From St Louis Republican.]
The result would have been different but
for one fatal mistake. That mistake was the
renomination of Mr. Greeley at Ballimore. I
That renomination should never bave been
made. We argued against lt at the time, be
cause we foresaw tts ev'l effect. It did not
bring Mr, Greeley a thousand Democratic
votes thal he would not have received with
out lt, and lt repelled half a million Republi?
can votes that he would have received but for I
lt. The Democratic renomination not only
made him a Democrat, but it made bim- I
using the partisan language of the canvass-a
traitor. From the Republican partisan point
of view he had not only suddenly become a I
traitor, but he bad done so to secure a Demo
eratic renomination. * * * Beiore
the Baltimore ?venta wide and formidable
revolt in the Republican party seemed
Inevitable; after Baltimore, lt became
Impossible. Before Baltimore, lt was an
Independent rebellion supported by the
Democratic masses; ofter Baltimore, lt
seemed to be a prearranged desertion
to the Democracy, and lor that reason lt
was permitted to dwindle to the Insignificant
proportions which it exhibited tn tho canvass.
The Baltimore "Convention did not intend to
kill the movement; but it did effectually kill
lt. * * * The Democracy should not have
made, a nomination at all; lt should have for?
mally and conspicuously withdrawn from the
Held, announced its resolution not to make a
contest for the Presidency, either with its own
candidate or any other candidate, and thus
yielded fighting ground to any foe ol the ad
ministration that might take ita place. This
was the "passive policy." 11should have been
adopied beiore the Cincinnati Convention.
Had lt been so adopted and strictly adhered to,
the Liberal opposition to President Grant
would have burst Into the proportions of a
powerful popular movement, and Ita nominee,
whoever he might have been, would have
been elected over Grant aa certainly and de?
cisively as Brown was elected Governor of
Missouri over McClurg In 1S70.
The Business Men's View or Greeley. J
[From tho Ohlcago Tribune]
Tbe first thing that occurs to the reflecting J
mind, in.reviewing the recent campaign ls,
that the business men of the country took an
early dislike and almost an alarm at Mr. Gree?
ley's candidacy. There were Borne notable
exceptions to this rule. The three or four
wealthiest men lu the country were his sup?
porters, and a respectable body of merchants
and bankers lu every elly could be counted ?
among his friends. But, with few excep?
tions, they were against him. They feared
that his election would produce hard times
that he would do something with the cur?
rency-that he would cause some precipi?
tate action to be taken regarding specie
payments. They feared a change. Things were
well enough In a dollar-and-cent view, and
your genuine business man does not look deep
Into questions of reform unless the reform
programme tallies with the dollar-and-cent J
programme which he bas In his mind's eye.
In this case lt did not. Bo the business classes
?. lay down" on Mr. Greeley at the oui set-lay
down bard on bim-made little noise about lt,
but sold to each other, " Grant ls bad enough,
but anything is better for us than Greeley."
No reasons were given for their antipathy
to Greeley-reasons are seldom given for
a commercial scare-lhere were no rea?
sons. The hard times they, dreaded have
come without any Greeley In them.
They might as well have predicted hone
disease or bog cholera to come in with
Greeley. But we are now stating laots, and
lt ls an obvious fact that the business men of I
the country generally were alarmed at Gree?
ley, and when, In the month ol July, his elec?
tion seemed probable, and the Grant party
got Into a real panlo, they proceeded to ''shell
eui" to prevent lt? . * We esteem
this factor of opposition te Greeley in the
recent campaign, on the whole, the most im?
portant one in it-at least equal to the solid
negro vote which was cast against him, and,
perhaps, stronger even than that.
[From the Wilmington Journal.]
We have been surprised and mortified at the
tone of a few of our Southern Democratic con?
temporaries In commenting on the disastrous
result of Tuesday. We aay "a few" because
most ol the criticism bas been eminently Im?
partial, unclouded and just. Our Journals, as
a general thing, lightly assigned as causes the
recalcitrancy of the Northern Democrats, the
general indifference of tbe people to reforms
and governmental perlls/and the gigantic pat?
ronage and money power of the government.
Butaome papers, giving way to feelings of I
natural disgust at the unmanly attitude of |
many Northern Democrats who refused to
support Mr. Greeley, have rashly attributed
the result to sectional animosity, and charge
that the North still cherishes against tho South
feelings of the bitterest hatred. Now we de?
precate this sort of criticism not only as being
unjust to the Northern people, but as mlsrepre- j
aeotlng Southern semi ment. It ls the criti?
cism of Hotspurs, unreasoning, rash, foollsn |
and hurtful. Tbe Southern people do not be?
lieve that the Northern people deliberately re?
elected Grant for the purpose of wreaking
spite upon us. Some of their leaders-shining
lights of Radicalism, like Chandler, Buller and
Morton, hate us; toe great body of the people
are rapidly forgetting the narrow, Illiberal and
harsh Issues of the war. True, broad over?
tures made by us for peace and amity were
seemingly slighted in the re-election of a maa
who has done us nothing but harm since he
has been In office. But we are loth to believe
that tbl9 is the real slgnltlcatiQn of last Tues?
day's work, We unhesitatingly say, we do not
believe any auch thing. And we thick the
expression of such opinion ls imprudent and

THE PRICE OF COAL.
[Prom thc Harrisburg, Pa., Journal ]
Speculation resorts to many and singular,
even mean subterfuges, to Justify its plunder?
ing of the consumer. In no business more
than that of selling money lathis imposition
practiced with greater brazen-facedaess than
thal of selling coal-disposing of lt to the re?
tail men ol the country. The-excuses for In?
creasing the price of coal have always been
shallow. Heretolore, when a ring or corner
desired to make a good round sum from sales
of this product, men were hired to get up a
strike for an outrageous demand of some kind.
It could be proved, without much trouble,
that the parties who owned collieries, and
who bad shipped large amounts ot coal to the
wholesale markets, connived at the intrigues
to get up strikes, and actually paid cash prices
to their creatures who managed such move?
ments. The Instant effect of such strikes was
to produce a panic; consumers of coal who
did not understand the real state ol' affilre,
rushed Into market to buy or make contracts,
and allowed themselves to be misled by the
supposition thal the supply would be short on
account of the strike. It did not take long to
reveal the rascality of these schemes, nor did
lt require any more time lor the coal operator
to devise some new scheme by which to con?
tinue preying on the purse ot the consumer.
The next subterfuge was to mine less coal,
and thus claim that on account ol the deficien?
cy In the supply prices must go up. In the
meantime railroad companies were drawn
tnto the intrigue and Induced to raise their
freights, in order that the high price oi coal
could be Justified. There was a time when ll
cost more to carry a ton of coal from ihe
mines In Schuylkill County to Philadelphia
than the article waa valued at ihe mouth ol
Ihe mine. The last dodge In this speculation
ls the Justification for last week's Increase in
the price of coal sixty cents per ton, that the
English mines were failing, and thal European
steam vessels are now coaling exclusively
in this country. The shallowness in this trick
Is at once apparent. Double and treble the
amount of new coal territory is developed In
this country for all ihe coal fields of England
which are discovered to be failing; and if our
mines are fairly worked lc would make no act?
ual impression-on the quantity used, so far as
the American consumer is concerned, il all
the steam vessels In the waters of ihe world
coaled ou the American coast. The entire ob?
ject of tbe wholesale coal trade and those who
move it seems io be to plunder ihe consumer.
Tue watering of stock and the payment ol
princely salaries for sinecure services demand
this increase ol price, and not the scarcity of
supply or ihe want of proper facilities to pro?

THE PROSPECTUS OF THE CENTEN?
An Address by the United States Cen?
tennial ?-'c mm liston.
To tlie People of Ute United States:
The Congress of tbe United Slates has en?
acted that tbe completion of tbe one hun?
dredth year of American independence eh ail
be celebrated by an international exhibition
of tbe arts, manufactures and products of tbe
soil and mine, to be held at Philadelphia in
1876, and has appointed a commission, con?
sisting of representatives trom each Slate
and Territory, to conduct the celebration.
Originating under th; auspices ol the Nation?
al Legislature, controlled by a national com?
mission, and designed as it Is to "commemor?
ate the Mrs t century of our existence, by an ex?
hibition of the natural resources ot the country
and their developmen t and of our progress
lu those arts which benefit mankind, In com
i parison with those of older nations," lt 1B to
I the people at large that the commission look
for the aid which ls necessary to make the
centennial celebration ibu grandest anniver?
sary the world has ever s*>eu.
That ihe completion of ihe first century of
! our existence should tie marked by some im?
posing demonstration Is, we believe, the pa?
triotic wleb of the people ot the whole coun?
try. The Congress of the United Slates has
wisely decided that the birthday of the great
Republic can be most fittingly celebrated by
the universal collection and display of all the
trophies of its progress. It ls designed to
bring together,within a building coverlne fifty
acres, not only ihe varied productions of our
mines and of the soil, but types ol all the In?
tellectual triumphs of Dur citizens, specimens
of everything that America can furnish,
whether irom ibe bra! os or the bands ol her
children, and Ihus make evident to the world
the advancement of which a Belf-governed
people ls capable.
lu this ''celebration'' ail nations will bo In?
vited to participate; Its character being Inter?
national. Europe will display her arts and
manufactures, India her curious labrlcs, while
newly opened China und Japan will lay bare
the treasures which fer centuries their Ingeni?
ous people have been perfecting. Each land
will compete in generous rivalry for (he palm
ot superior excellence.
To this grand gathering every zone will con?
tribute Its fruits and cereals. No mineral
shall be wanting, for what the East lacks the
West will supply. Hider one root will the
South display in rich luxuriance ber growlog
colton, an i the North lu miniature the cease?
less machinery of her mills converting that
colton Into cloth. Each section of the globe
will send Its best offerings to this exhibition,
and each Stale of ibe Union, as a member ot
one united body politic, will show lo her sister
States and to the wend how much ahe can
add to the greatness ol the nation of which
she ls a harmonious pm.
To make tho centennial celebration such a
success as the patriotism and the pride of
every American dernandB will require the
co-operation ot the people of the whole
country. The United States centennial com?
mission has received io government aid, such
as England extended to her world's talr, and
Prance to her universal exposition, yet the
labor and responsibility imposed upon the
commission ls as great as la either of those
undertakings. It is estimated that ten mil?
lions of dollars will bi required, and this sum
Congress has provided shall be raised by slock
subscription, and tba ; the people shall have
the opportunity of subscribing lu proportion
to the population ol their respective States
The commission looks to the unfailing patri?
otism of the people of every section lo Bee ibat
each con tri mues Its Biiare to the expenses and
receives Its share ol the benefits of an enter?
prise In which all are so deeply Interested. It
would further eames Hy urge the formation In
each State and Territory ol a centennial
organization, which sball ia lime see that
county associations are formed, so that wbeo
the nations are gathered together in 1876 each
Commonwealth can view with pride the contri?
butions she has mado lo the national glory.
Confidently relying on the seal and patriot?
ism ever displayed by our people ia every
national undertaking, we pledge aud prophecy
that the centennial celebration will worthily
show how greatness, wealth and Intelligence
can be fostered by such institutions as those
which have for one hundred years blessed the
people of the United Stales.

A BRTUAL ASSASSINATION.
A Party of Disguised Men Deliberately
Murder a Young Georgian.
[from the Atlanta s JU, November Vi.)
In Glascock County, near the line dividing
Glascock und Washington Counties, ls a bridge
known as Kitchen's Bridge. About one hun?
dred yards from Ibis bridge, a young man
named Reuben Armor bas recently erected a
small storehouse, where he has been keeping
a small stock of goods suitable lor the country
trade. For two or three weeks past Mr,
B--, a friend of M.*. Armor (we withhold bis
full name for the present) has been on a visit,
staying In ibe Blore, and Bleeping in tbe back
room with Armor, which was occupied as a
bed-room. On fca'.urday afternoon Armor,
who was drinking, aad a difficulty with some
persons-the particulars of which our In?
formant does not inow-at a house in the
neighborhood. When he came to the store
late in the atternooii lhere were marks and
bruises on his lace, which would Indicate
that he had been fighting. He stated lo lils
Irlend that he had had a difficulty, giving the
names of Ihe partita, and that he had been
maltreated, there being several of them
against him. A little past twelve o'clock Sat?
urday night some negroes passing called at
Ihe front door ol the store, awaking the two
men, who were asleep in ihe back room, slat?
ing lhat they wished to make some purcha?
ses. Tney were lnlormed that the hour was
unseasonable, ami they could not get
what they wished. A few minutes
laier a gentle rapping was heard at
the door, and a voice, which was recog
nized as that of a man living near by, asked
admittance. Mr. IS-, who had put on bia
pants, opened tnt door, when a mau In a
black hood and gov/n, coverlne- completely his
body, with a navy pistol In hand, pushed him
selfln8lde,'pa8t Mr. B-, who, though much
startled, demanded his business. No reply
waa made, but the pistol was turned from Mr.
B-and pointed at Armor. Two other men In
similar disguise now came In; Armor was
seized forcibly, being totally unarmed, and
carried out the door. A lourth man in dis?
guise, ar ^ ed ": th a musket or carbine, pointed
it tow *.. B-. who grappled with bis
would-be murderer. In the scuffle the gun was
fired, and the third finger ol' Mr. B-'a
left hand shot off. Another one ot the dis?
guised men coming up just at this juncture,
Mr. B- was very wisely "seized wllh a
leaving," which he effected by means of a
window In the back room, which ihe little
negro boy who slept on the floor In the office
baa already opened to effect his own escape.
Mr. B- ran from the house some distance,
and lay out lu ihe woods until day, when he
called lor some of the neighbors to go wllh
him to the store, where they found Armor
dead, his throat cut from ear to ear, and his
head crushed and mangled. A coroner's Jury
was summoned, and a verdict rendered that
the deceased came to his death by the hand of
some unknown parties,
BLOODY WORK WITH IHR PI8TO&.
! A .Vegro Asaaagln In Savannah-A Wo?
man Fatally Injured.
The Savannah Advertiser, of yesterday, re?
ports a murderous affray which happened In
that city last Tuesday evening between two
negroes named Josiah Lloyd and Richard
It appears that tbey bad quarrelled during
the afternoon and shortly after dark Jarvis,
accompanied by a friend, approached Lloyd's
store. Both of them were armed, and after
some loud talk outside, they entered
and demanded .drinkp. Perceiving that
they were already under the influence of
liquor, Lloyd declined to sell them any
more. Toey then went outside and be?
came very profane and abusive-Jai vis
flourishing a pistol, threatening to kill
Lloyd, and declaring that he would have
i-ailstactlon. The Intended victim at this time
sat upon a stool, and bis little boy, about ten
years of age, was plas log near by. Suddenly
Jarvis raised his weapon, and deliberately
taking aim, fired, but the charge did not ex?
plode. At this instant Lloyd's mother, at?
tracted by the ncisp, came to the back door,
and believing that Jarvis Intended to murder
her BOO, hurried through the yard, out of the
gate on East Broad street, and begged him
not to shoot. At this moment, aa Lloyd stood
at the door, Jarvis again look aim and fired.
The ball grazed Lloyd's person and struck
the foot of bis little son. Lloyd, who
was entirely unarmed, stepped aside,
and before be could re-enter the store
ihe desperado fired again. 1 he ball missed
the intended victim, and struck Mrs. Lloyd,
who threw up her bands, and uttering a
piercing shriek fell to ihe ground. The son
rushed to ber and carried her Into the bouse,
while the cry of the wounded woman was
taken up by the horrified women In the neigh?
borhood until the place resounded with their
screams. The murderous villain seeing his
bloody work walked away, and stood at the
corner opposite his victim's house. Officer
Conallan, who resides near by, was startled at
the uproar, and rushing to the place seized
the assassin and took him to the barracks. It
ls probable that the woman will not recover.
THE BICKENS MURDER.
Further Details of the Horrid Deed.
[From the Columbia Union.]
On Friday evening, the 8th Instant, E. M.
Hughes, a white man, eon of Larken Hughe?,
who lives In Plckeus about three miles from
ihe Courthouse, while on his way to the cotton
?gio was murdered by Julius Durham, a neigh?
bor living about cnn and a half miles from ihe
murdered mao. The circumstances of this
cold-blooded murder ara related to us as fol?
lows: Mr: Hughes was taking a load of his
colton io be ginned. He was sitting on the
rear of the load, a colored man driving the
team. When they arrived within about a mile
and a half of the Courthouse, according to the
testimony ot the driver before the Jory, they
met Durham, who waa on horseback, coming
from the town, considerably under the influ?
ence ol liquor. Durham said -'Good evening.
Dick, won't you take a drink or brandy ?
I have some of the beat you ever
tasted." Hughes thanked him, remark?
ing that he never drank. Durnam then
urged Hughes to return home with bim and
accompany him to a corn shucking, which
was to take place In the neighborhood that
night. Hughes replied that he was obliged to
go on and see to the ginning ot his cotton.
Durham said, "Make that damned nigger take
lt or shoot him;" and at that snapped his pis?
tol at the colored man. The cap snapped, out
the pistol was not discharged. Hughes asked
if the pistol was loaded, and on being told that
lt was, said to Durham that he ought not to do
that, as it was dangerous. Upon this Durham
turned to Hughes and fired, the ball severing
the large artery on the left side of the neck.
Hughes sprang from the wagon and said,
"Why did you shoot me?" Tneae were his
lan words. He died In about thirty min?
utes. As soon as the deed was done
Durham pnt the colored man on hie
horse and sent him to the Courthouse for a
physician. When the man returned with a
party of citizens, Durham had fled, but was
aoon captured. Toe Jury returned a verdict
in accordance with the above facts. We learn
that Hughes was a very peaceable, unoffend?
ing young man, of about twenty-two year J ot
age, and unmarried. There had never been
any quarrel or bard feeling existing between
the parties, and no cairne ls assigned for the
atrocious deed, except that Durnam was in
liquor, and was rather a reckless young man.
He was about nineteen years of age. This ls
stated to be the 'seventeenth murder In Pick
ens since the war, and not one of tbe mur?
derers has suffered the extreme penally ot the
law. This tragedy adds another to the long
Hst of crimes to be charged to the abuse ol
THE GREEK BRIGANDS.
A Womsn'i Stratagem and Its Resulta'
L ftory comes from Athens about Greek
brigandage very refreshing to honest people,
and suggestive ol the question whether women
might not govern Greece better than its men.
One of the curses of modern Hellas, as every?
body knows, ls the unextirpated guild of bri?
gands, who Infest the land, defying ihe govern?
ment, suppressing commerce, demoralizing
! the peasaniry, and robbing and murdering
! strangers or rich natives. One of these un?
hanged villains lately captured the youth?
ful son of a widow woman of prop?
erty, well known upon the border. Tne
usual message was sent down from the hills :
ihe brigand chief must have. one thousand
drachmas by a certain day, or the life of the
boy-he was only twelve years old-would
pay the forfeit. As usual, too, the last hope
which a mother could cherish In such a fright?
ful position was the chance of government
help. The wretchedly weak administrations
which play at "In and out," in Athens, still
allow these scoundrels to hold the roads and
passes of the country, and this poor woman
had to trust to her own courage and wits.
Neither were wanting; lhere was some true old
Odyssinean blood In her, and she blt upon a
plan for saving her child and her drachmas.
She bad a brother, a young fellow of perfect
pluck, though blB cheeks were as smooth as
the Dellan Apollo's, and him she dressed up
carefully as a Greek girl. Having appointed to
meet the robber chief in a certain spot, she
took up two hundred drachmae and a present
ot cakes and fruit, the "Greek girl" going
with her as a " guide." On reaching the place
they found the" scoundrel walting, with the
captive lad bound hand and loot beside him.
The woman first ascertained by cunning
questions that the man was really alone,
and then offend, with many supplica?
tions, ber money, and the present of
cakes and fruit. Tne villain took the latter,
and munched while he counted out the
drachmas; then, with a fierce oatb, he said if;
was far too little, that she must go back and
send enough to make np a thousand, or the
head of the lad would be sent down to her
without delay. While the woman clung sup?
plicating to hie knees the "Greek girl'' sud?
denly flung a grip of Iron round the robber's
arms, and as the fellow was thus pinioned the
outraged mother drew a loaded pistol and shot
him dead. The pair lost no lime In liberating
ihe lad, nor did tbey forget to cut off and wrap
in a cloth the head of the "chief;" and as a re?
ward of three thousand drachmas bad been set
upon this precious article, tbey made quite an
excellent day's business of it on arriving sate
and Bound at their own Tillage.
