Tueslay Morning:. January 19, 1869.
South Carolina. I uiver JII y. .
MB, EDITOR: I had the opportunity of
attending, on Saturday evening last, Janu?
ary 16, a convention of tho two literary
societies of the University, and hearing
them debate a question. As a lover of
education, I desire to express publicly my
sense of the high proficiency of these young
debaters in that important art. Seldom
does one hoar from studeuts ut college such
excellent speaking as I witnessed on that
occasion. Messrs. Townsend, Hemphill,
Ligon, Clarkson, Gaston nnd Boggs, all did
themselves and their Alma Mater great
honor. I venture to predict for them all,
hereafter, with the smiles of Providence,
great success .as public speakers-if they
will only continue to exert themselves with
diligence, and earnestness. Aud I would
take occasion to express to the present
Governor and Legislature the earnest de?
sires and hopes of a citizen and a tax-payer
respecting this important institution. Let
tho Sooth Carolina University bo fostered
by the new State government. I am no
Eo?tician, but I am confident that the int el
gent portion of the white population wish
tu see it live and flourish again; and that
the tax-payerB will pay cheerfully for its
support. As for the colored people of tho
State, let them be also provided-os far as
possible-with every opportunity of ad?
vancing in knowledge. I bolievo the class
of white tax-payers alluded to abovo would
all join me in this sentiment. If the pre?
sent Legislature will, on the one hand, by
liberal appropriations, foster the University
as a place of liberal education for the whites,
and, on the other baud, go forward and set
np a college for tho education of colored
youth in the higher branches of knowledge,
it is my belief that tho public sentiment of
the State at large would give tho proceed?
ing a hearty sanction. A. B. J.
EDOEFIELD COUNTY, January 10, I860.
Editor Phoenix -DEAR SUS: Through your
columns, I beg to notify tho citizens gene?
rally of this section, of a lot of impostors
and swindlers, who aro traveling through
tho country with a few articles of goods to
sell and samples of other goods to be deli?
vered. They arc really engaged in offering
inducements for cotton to bo delivered to
them, regardless of title, Atc. ; and I hereby
warn oil good citizens from giving them
any shelter or encouragement. S. B.
The Loomis proposition of telegraphy
without wires, by which the earth and water
are to be used as couductors, was presented
to the Senate the other day, in a modest re?
quest for an appropriation of $50,000 where?
with to effect experiments. It is the same
proposition which received a newspaper ven?
tilation in New York. Mr. Sumner thought
it was either moonshine or very important,
and several Senators seeming disposed to
throw ridicule upon the matter, Mr. "Wilson
thought it was better not to sneer just yet.
Some of the greatest men of the country
had laughed when tho magnetic telegraph
was first suggested, but the laugh was now
on the other side of thc mouth.
A NEW LIGHT.-The New York Herald
says: "The initiative step to tho revolution
of means for lighting the streets, public
buildings and stores has at length been
taken, and ho.'i proved a decided success.
From this time, therefore, the enormous
dividends of the gas monopolies will dimi?
nish. On Christmas eve the large establish?
ment of Ball, Black & Co., Broadway, was
illuminated willi tho new oxygen light,
again last night, and will be for public in?
spection to night. The nev/ light is soft,
clear and pleasant, and is produced at a
much lower cost than the uncertain, unre?
liable stuff of the old gas companies."
FIRE IN SAVANNAH.-The Savannah Re?
publican, of yesterday, says: ?.This morn?
ing, about half-past 'J o'clock, a fire broke
out in the back part of Mr. \\. 1). li. Mil?
lar's oil store, No. 157 Bay street, u few
doors West of our ellice. The flames spread
with great rapidity, owing to the combusti?
ble nature of the stock in the store, and
Roon extended to tho carpenter-shop of Mr.
Killoren, in Bay lane, which was filled with
lumber, completely destroying the contents
of that establishment in a very short time.
Mr. Millar's stock was entirely destroyed or
damaged by water. At one time, the Hames
caught the rear portion of the Pulaski
House ont-buildiugs, in fact, several of thc
window-frames weie seriously damaged.
The fire also extended to the rear of thc
grain and feed st.ire of Mr. O. V. Hutchins,
next East of Mr. Millar's establishment, dc
stroying his entire stock. Mr. W. D. lt.
Millar estimates the value of his stock at
$10,000; insured for 85,000. Several law?
yers, who had offices in the Recoud story,
lost nil their furniture and books, and a
family and a number of single gentlemen,
occupying rooms in tho second and third
stories, lost all their furniture."
A di structive fire occurred in Philadel?
phia, on Friday last, which destroyed the
handsome four-story white marble build?
ings, corner of Ninth and Chcsnut, occupied
by Howell & Brothers, Caldwell & Co., and
others. The Continental Hotel and Girard
House were in great danger, but escaped
destruotion. One or two persons nm sup
posed to have lost their lives in the burnt
buildings. Tho lire is believed to have
been caused by the bursting of a boiler in
thc cellar of one of tho buildings. Theloss
is ..vera million dollars.

One of the FaitMt Ride? on Record.
Ono ot the moat exciting occurrences that
ha? happened in this country for some time
past, transpired at Hickory Grove last even?
They have in that vioinity a regalar organ?
ized vigilance committee, for the purpose
of protecting themselves against hoise
thieves and tho bringing of them to justice
afterwards. These vigilants are always
ready for business-will, in fact, follow a
horse-thief on the drop of a hat. Last oven
ing, thero was a singing-school at the school
house. The young people assembled as
was their custom, but in their anxiety to do
thc gallant, they, like thc foolish virgins, had
fcrgottcu to fill their lamps with oil. Dark?
ness is a good thing under some circum?
stances, but it wouldn't do for singing
purposes, so il was decided that young Elm
DeCuuip should take one of his father's
horses and go up the ruad about a mile for
oil, while the others waited his return.
Taking tho oil-cau, lie went direct to tho
stable, and bridling thc fastest steed of tho
lot, he galloped off.
A vigilant, seeing this part of the pro?
ceedings, hastened to the house with the
startling intelligence that some one had just
stolon a horse. Madison DeCamp, who, by
tho way, is a drover of some note, hastened
to tho stable, aud on seeing that the best
horso was gone, quickly untied another, and
without saddle or bridle, aud without stop?
ping to get his hat, mounted and dashed
madly up the road after the supposed thief,
arousing the vigilants as be went. Being in
a hurry to shed light upon a darkened sing?
ing-school, young DcCamp, something of a
horseman as well as his sire, didn't let any
stray horseman overtake him, and so uncon?
sciously gave his pursuer moredistauce thau
he wauted. In a few minutes, the country
was swarmed with armed men, and at the
head of the bravest band of them all rode
Madison DeCamp, bare-heudod, and grasp?
ing the leather thong with au iron grasp.
Meanwhile, young DeCamp had procured
his oil, and was riding at n stiff gait toward
home. He saw several horsemen iu his way,
but, not knowing that they were thirsting
for his blood, he rode directly into their
midst. They knew the horse, ami supposed
somo of the advanced vigilants had inter?
cepted tho thief, aud turned his course. So
DeCamp, Sr., rode up to tho supposed thief,
and, seeing his own son, could only say,
"What in thunder brought you here?"
Young DeCamp, seeing his own father,
hare-headed and astride of a horse that ho
had left but a short time before safe in the
stable at hom<\ could only return the salu?
tation, and in about the samo style. All
saw the misunderstanding. Couriers were
despatched ?ind the vigilants called in,

THE BITE OF A DEAD RATTLESNAKE.-M.
Delahaye, a French draughtsman, was lately
bitten by a dead rattlesnake, and might have
lost his life, but for prompt and efficient
precautions. The gentleman had been, mak?
ing a drawing of a stuffed rattlesnake, und
replacing it in its case, the spring which
held the jaws asunder slipped, and the teeth
came, down on tho draughtsman's finger and
inflicted a sharp wound. He immediately
sucked the wound, tied a thread tightly
above it to prevent circulation. Tho wound
was soaked in strong alkali, then cauterized,
and other usual remedies against poison
were employed. In about an hour, all symp?
toms of daugor were over. To satisfy them?
selves, the surgeons then procured a healthy
rabbit and pricked him with the samo tooth
with which Delahaye had been wounded,
and tho animal died in convulsions in half
This reminds us of a story, which wo be?
lieve is entirely authentic, and which we
give according to our recollection: Homo
years ago, a Now England farmer at work
in tho fields, was bitten in the leg, through
his boot, by a rattlesnake, and in a short
timo died of tho wound. A brother inhe?
rited tho boots, and unsuspectingly wore
them. In a short, time, thc leg of the "wearer
bore marks of having been scratched in the
same place where the first owner was bitten
by tho snake, and tho symptoms of poison
followed, and ultimately' death itself. This
lcd to tho examination of the boot-leg, and
there was found the point of the snake's
fang, sticking iu theieather, which, small as
it was, had virulence enough in it to poison
and kill after many days-perhaps weeks or
months-and might, for aught wo know,
killed successive generations, had it not been
A DEAD M\N BEFORE AN ARKANSAS COURT.
An Arkansas correspondent of the New Or?
leans Picayune tells tho following story of
the rigid manner in which justice is meted
out to a man in that region: Some years ago
a mau without a family or relatives lived in
a County in this State, and was possessed of
an estate worth $5,000. He went to New
Orleans aud was absent for years without
being hoard from. Tho Probate Judge
granted administration upon his estate,
wound it up, and discharged tho adminis?
trator. Tho man nt length returned. He
had been to Mexico, l?o applied to the
Judge for his property, when in open Court
the following dialogue took place: Dead
man-"If your Honor please, I waut ni j
effects returned to me, us you see I am not
dead yet." Tho Court-"I know-that is,
1 as a man, know you are alive and it:
Court, but as a Court I know you are dead,
for the records of tho Court say so, and
against their verity there is no averment,
so says Lord Coko aud a good many othet
books 1 never read." Dead man - "But I
want my property, aud it's no matter tt
mo whether your records lie or not. I an
alive, have not transferred my property, ant
to deprive me of it without my consent i;
without all law." Tho Court-"If yon in
sinuate that tho records of this Court lie
the Court will send you to jail." Deat
man - "Send a dead man to jail?" Th?
Court --"Mr. Sheriff, take this apparitioi
out." Sherill-"Bo thou ghost or goblii
damned, I'll speak to thee. Como on, let'i
go tako something to drink." Tho Judg<
stuck to it, that so far as his Court was con
cerned, he was dead, and he should sta;
dead. The poor fellow went into Chancer
and spent all ho made in Mexico.
