On Monday night of last week, a
.whito man, named Cornell, and a
negro man, who accompanied him,
-were both murdered near Eowndes
viile, in this District. Their pock?
ets had been rifled, their load of
tobacco . and bats had been carried
off, as well ns the pair of mules at?
tached to their wagon. They had
recently come from Georgia, and had
passed through this place. A. negro
going i.ito Lowndesvillo before day,
on Tuesday morning, reported that
be had met two white mon going to?
wards Savannah River, one riding a
mule and leading another mule, the
other, man walking behind. No clue
to the perpetrators of this dreadful
crime hus been obtained.
As James Martin, familiarly knowu
in this District uti ;:aueuk," wu? uu
his way home, on Monday afternoon,
he was ' shot by some person un?
known, about fotir miles ?iuui the
village, on the road to Calhoun's
'Mills. An inquest was held by
Squire McCasliu, on Tuesday morn?
ing, at which tho following facts were
elicited: Martin was ridiug a mule,
accompanying a wagon, in which
were two negroes and a barrel of
whiskey. The whole party stopped
ou the outskirts of the village, and
divided the whiskey with some per?
sons who hud claims to a portion of
it. Shortly after they left the vil?
lage, they overtook a third negro
man, who was allowed to get into the
wagon. When they had proceeded
a little more than four miles from tho
village, they were overtaken by three
men on horseback, who ordered them
to stop, claiming that tho whiskey
was theirs, saying at the same time to
the negroes and Martin, that they
did not mean to do them any harm.
Martin dismounted of his own ac?
cord, and commenced retreating in
the direction of tho village. Two of
the men on horseback .followed him.
Martin then commenced running,
and the men discharged their pistols.
They were "all ' in sight of the
negro men, Who say that the men on
horseback did uot shoot as if they
intended to hit him. He was not
hit in tho back, as he must have
been, if these men had shot him.
These.two men stopped after shoot?
ing, and returned to tho wagon, and
with the third man on horseback,
filled their, bottles with whiskey, and
emptied tho balance in the barrel on
the ( ground. Very soon after, tho
sound of a pistol shot was heard;
but Martiu was then ont of sight
and no one was seen on tho
road. Mr. Sprouts testified that five
men on horseback passed his house
rapidly, bat he did not see them ro
turn. A negro woman named Affy,
was the first to discover Martin. He
was lying on the side of the road,
with his feet in a ditch. There were
marks of his having dragged himself
or of his having beeen dragged on
the road. He said to the woman:
4,Oh! God, I am shot," and told her
that h* did not know any of the men
that h?? had seen. He very soon bled
to death, as he had been shot in the
Soin, and an artery had been cut.
artin's pocket-book and pistol had
been taken from him. The negroes
in the wagon had pistols, but they
were not disturbed.
About two yoars ago, a sehooner
sailed from Mobile with 150 colored
mon on board, ostensibly bound for
Texas, where the freedmen were pro?
mised employment ns railway labor?
ers at high wages. It is now alleged
that the negroes were taken to Cuba
and sold into slavery, and tho Mobilo
journals are prosecuting an inquiry
into th* subject. Rovfiwil prnmf?Qnt
radioaln are* reported as having been
concerned in the matter. .'4-^^m*"<

AVOID POISON.-INVALID READER,
do you know what ninc-tcntha of tho bit
tor compounds you aro solicited by tho
proprietors to accept as universal pana?
ceas aro composed of? Givo heed for a
moment. They aro manufactured from
unpuri?ed alcohol, containing a consider?
able portion of fusil oil-a poison almost
as deadly as prussic t*c:d. Tho basis of
tho regular tinctures of tho Materia Me?
dica is tho same. No amount of "herbal
extracts" can overcome tho bad tondenoy
of this pernicious clement. Tho essence
of sound rye, thoroughly roctificd, is the
only stimulant which can bo eafely used
as a component of a tonic, alterative and
anti-bilious medicine, and HOSTETTEB'S
STOMACH BITTERS is tho only medi?
cinal preparation in the world in which
this article is need as an ingredient.
Hence the extraordinary effects of this
groat specific. It gives strength without
Sroducmg oxcitomont. No other tonic
ocB this. All tho ordinary bitters flush
the face and affect the brain. Hostetter's
Bitters diffuses an agreeable calm through
the nervous system, promotes digestion
and produces sleep. No other tonic so
quickly revives tho exhausted physical
energies, restores tho appetite and re?
moves the gloom and depression which
always accompanies weakness of the
bodily powers, lt purges from tho sys?
tem tho morbid humors which retard its
natural functions, and which bring pale?
ness to tho cheek and suffering to tho
brow. It banishes those clogs upon plea?
sure, restores tho Bystem to high health,
aud necessarily proves a valuable adjunct
to tho digestivo organs. A trial is all that
is needed to establish it in the confidence
of tho skeptio. September 30 -ft!

TUE WEEKLY GLEANER-Devoted to
tho rehabilitation of the South in its former
prosperity-is offered to subscribers at tho
low rato of $1.50 for eix months.
The annals of tho American Republic
show no political campaign comparable in
tho magnitude of ita issues and tho mo?
mentousness of ita results to that for tho
Presidency, now pending. Indeed, tho
very lifo of free government is on trial,
and it will bo a sad commentary on tho
capacity of the people for tho exorcise of
that high trust if they, the jurors who are
to try tho issue, pronounce a verdict of
self-condemnation. If the South bas any
hope it is in the success of tho Democratic
party in tho coming Presidential election;
and every citizen ia vitally interested in
the progress of the battle, and cannot
afford to ho without a sound and reliable
As an organ, not only of sound Demo?
cratic principles, hut as a vehicle of ge?

commended to Southern support. A large
eight-page paper, of forty-eight columna,

respondents, tho daily wealth of tele?

an organ to diaabuao tho Northern mind
of the falsehoods in relation to Southern
thought and actions,-with which it is the
industrious vocation of certain partios to
poison tho springs of Northern feoling on
Southern subjects. In this view of the
matter, no moro valuable aid to thc true
reconstruction of tho 'Quntry and restora?

tho South can be rendered than hy sub?
