A STRANGE DISCOVERY.-Last Friday
night, at ll o'olock, tho conductor of
the freight train on the Northern Central
Railroad was very much surprised to see
on his train with the rest of the freight
a box of the most elegant workmanship.
It greatly exoited his curiosity, owing to
the extravagance, as he thought, of
placing it among such a rough lot of
freiglit. If he was surprised at its ap?
pearance, he was almost terrified, when
the train arrived at Woodberry and be?
came still, to hear the ories of au infant
proceeding therefrom. At first, he could
aot believe it. Placing his ear to the
lid, he could almost feel the breath of ]
the little prisonor npou his cbenk, cre?
vices haviag been left for air. Hammer
and chisel were speedily availed of, and
in a few momenta a chubby-faced, blue
eyed, dimple-oheeked little boy, not a
month old, was revealed to the asto?
nished spectators. It waa placed in the
hands of a lady living near by, who pro
mise? to rear it, and it is proposed, if
the conductor will give his oonsent, to
have it named after him. The same
evening before the train started from the
depot, a well-dressed man was seen lurk?
ing about the plaoe, and it is supposed
that he was the owner of the infant.
AN INTERESTING REMO.-Mr. Elisha
Careen, of our town, baa iu his posses?
sion the identical sword used by Thad?
deus Sobieski at the great battle of War?
saw. It was brought to this oountry by
Count Sobieski, in the year 1818, and
sold, with his other effects, in Charles?
ton, where he died in 1822. Mr. Car?
son waa in thoeo days a oitizen of
Charleston, and a near neighbor and in?
timate friend of Count Bobieski, who
hod repeatedly informed him of the his?
tory of his nnole's sword. When it was
offered for sale, Mr. Carson, who alone
knew its msthetioal value, bid it off for
818. Col. Keith, who knew that it was
a Poliah weapon, run it up to that figure.
It is a quaint-looking old" weapon, for
which the British Museum woald proba?
bly be willing to pay a round price.
Who has not read Thaddeus of Warsaw?
All who are acquainted with that histori?
cal romance will experience a glow of
pleasure in looking at the sword wielded
by the hands of the doughty hero of
Warsaw, who afterwards married and
died in England.-Sumter News.

AK EpiscoritTJ CLERGYMAN EMBRACES
THE CATHOLIC FAITH.-Reforring to the
difficulties which existed between the
Right Rev. Bishop Whittingham, of the
Episcopal Diocese of Maryland, and the
Rev. Alfred A. Curtis, late rector of
Mount Calvary Church, Baltimore,
which culminated in the refusal of the
latter to accept the pastoral letter of the
House of Bishops, ?nd subsequently in
the resignation of bis charge, the
Gazelle, of that oity, Bays:
The course of Mr. Curtis, since his
withdrawal from Monut Calvary, has
been watched with great inter?s', and
various reports were circulated that he
had been a constant attendant at the
Cathedral und other Catholic churches
of this city.
Soon after tho difficulties aroso, how?
ever, Mr. Curtis left this country and
proceeded to Birmingham, England,
where ho still remains, his object in
going thcro, it is understood, being to
consult with Dr. Newman, formerly a
prominent divino in the Churoh of
England, but now, as is generally
known, a member of the Roman Catholic
A few days ago Bishop Whittingham
received u communication from Mr.
Curtis, notifying him of his intention of
renouncing his faith in the Episcopal
Church. Acting upon this letter, the
Bishop called together a number of the
clergy of Baltimore, who met in St.
Paul's Church, on Wednesday last, at
tho ll o'clock sorvice. Immediately
after the second lesson tho Bishop placed
himself in front of the altnrand publicly

provided for such cases.
TUE RECENT MURDERS OP THE MIS?
SOURI BOND RoniiEiis.-A special from
Kansas City gives further details of the
brutal murder of Stevenson, Cline and
Dutro on the railroad train near Holden,
on Wednesday, for their combination
with others connected with the Cass
County Court to rob tho County of a
large sum of bonds, which had been de?
clared fraudulent. Aftor tho train
stopped, four of the mob mounted the
locomotivo and guarded tho engineer
with drawn revolvors. The train was
then surrounded, aad Olino and Steven?
son called out. Cline appeared, and
after some words regarding his connec?
tion with tho fraudulent issue of Cass
County bonds, he was riddled with bul?
lets and his body thrown by the side of
the track. Several of the orowd emptied
their revolvers into his mangled body.
Stevenson waa in the baggage car, and
barred the doors against the mob, but
the mob broke in the doors with a log of
wood and poured a volley into the Judge,
killing him instantly. Stevenson's body
was dragged .out and laid besido that of
Cline. Dutro, who was in the passenger
car, was mortally wounded. The train
waa then allowed to start, bnt was sig?
nalled to stop. The dying man, Dutro,
was then drugged from the coach and
thrown down near tho dead bodies of
Cline and Stoveneou. A report reached
Kansas City last night that Judge For?
syth, another of the County Justices,
had been shot aud hanged to a treo.
Great excitement prevails throughout
the County, and fears are felt that still
others will ba murdered. The perpetra
tora of this massacre claim that they
have 1,000 men in organization.
STRANOH COINCIDENCE.-Wo learn
from Mr. E. M. Aderholdt, of Gaston,
that the wife ef Sam Mooney, colored,
dropped dead at the dinner table on Sa?
turday last. Her sister came over to at?
tend the fnneral and dropped dead on
the next night in tho same house.
JODOK OBB.-A correspondent of the
Abbeville Medium eajs:
In these sad times, it is pleasing to be
able to speak in terms of just and truth?
ful appreciation of the oharaoter and
services of a public functionary, and es?
pecially of a higu judicial magistrate.
In former and better days, the high offi?
cials of the State, and particularly the
judges, exacted by their eminent virtues
tho willing tribute of popular respect
and veneration. The very presenoe of
the judge inspired respect for his office
and for the law, whose minister he was.
The law was administered with ability
and dignity. Innocence found a sanc?
tuary in the ouurts, and crime was
scourged with the rod of the law. Every
citizen, the low and the lofty, felt secure
in his person and his property-felt
equally the protection of the law. The
public peace was rarely broken, and pri?
vate security rarely invaded. The taxes
were paid by the citizen as a cheerful
contribution to the Government that
protected him, and all pursued their avo?
cations without molestation and without
fear. It is believed that the circuit cl
Judge Orr, one of the largest, if not the
largest, in the State, is the only circuit
in which the publio peace and private
security are preserved. Bad morals and
bad passions-bitter frnits of the lat?
unhappy war-have been repressed, and
confidence in the justice of the couru
and in the protection of the law hai
been inspired. It is unspeakable praise
to Judge Orr, that by mere peaoefu
agencies-tho inferior magistrates anr
executive officers of eaoh Gounty, am
the firm yet gentle and impartial admi
nistration of law itself from the bench
the most absolute quietude has prevailed
in his oircuit, and a mild and wholesomi
sonse ofjscou.ity felt by the citizen
however humble. That this picture ii
life like, as well in Abbeville as the otho
Counties, every oitizen feels to be true
That this happy and peaceful conditio!
of Abbeville is due to the eminent ta
lents, large attainments and vigorous ad
ministrative abilities of Judge Orr, i
were shameless dispraise to deny.

INCENDIARY FIRES.-Wi thia s w?rek
past, three during attempts have been
made to fire the town. The first at?
tempt was made on last Wednesday
night, when an arm-ful of shavings was
placed on the piazza of the "Old Bom ur
House, " and Bet on fire. This old bou be
being in the very centre of the business
part of the town, and being built of
wood and very much decayed, no point
could have been better selected for a
wholesale destruction of the town. On
Friday night following, another attempt
was made to fire the wooden offices io
rear of the law office of Evins & Bomar,
and on Sunday night the incendiary was
caught in the very act of firing the
building occupied by Mr. Leonhardt as
a bar-room. His name is Lawrence ?
Mazyck, a colored barber, who came to
this place a month ago from Morganton,
North Carolina. The proof and nis own
confessions connect him pretty certainly
with all three of the efforts to fire the
town. He was once the trusted body
servant of the editor of thia paper, and
his faithfulness in the camp, on the
maroh, and by the bed-side during
months of suffering from a severe gun?
shot wound, are still gratefully remem?
bered. Mazyok has been drinking very
hard for some time past, sud it is be?
lieved was BO demented with liquor that
he was net aware of the terrible aots
committed by him. He wiil not, how?
ever, be allowed to go at ' large soon
again, and must realize the sad experi?
ence to which intemperance sooner or
later brings so many of its victims.
The etory that "the Queen of Mada?
gascar takes Harper*s Weekly," origi?
nated in the fact that one of her loving
subjects Bent her a leg and wing of a
roast missionary, inclosed in an old copy
of the periodical mentioned, which was
found in the lining of the missionary's
? gentleman and his wife departed
from Indianapolis, taking with them
their nineteen children, five of whom
were "in arms." The father is thirty
eight, and the mother thirty-six.
