organ ? gu? y on.' called the Union Republi?

journed meeting, and issued an address
to the Republicans of New York city
and State, setting forth the-causes that
have led to th? present movement, and
detailing.: the corrupt practices of other
Republican organizations. The main
object of the new party organization, as
set forth in (lie address, is to express the
disgust of toe mass of the Republicans
at the fra?dB perpetrated in the district
associations, in which little cliques of
three or four have kept entire control of
such associations; and prevented that
"reform in tho party in New York so
vitally essential to save it from ruin and

RAVING AGAIN.-Wendell Phillips has
gone clean daft over the recout split in
radical circles. As usual, he vents his
spleen upon General Qrant, and this is
the way he pours aquafortis over the en?

What have we for President? A jockey
and sea-side lounger; a restless boy,
needing constantly to be amused; and so
impatient of business that he cannot stay
at his post more than a week at a time.

A COLORED WOMAN KILLED ny' HER
SON-IN-LAW.-On Monday afternoon, a
colored mau, named Albert Millhouse,
', killed Lavinia Prisi?n, his mother-in
law. The parties live on Goose Creok,
about fifteen miles from tho oity. It
M appears that for some months past Lavi?
nia und Mi'.Mionse have been ?Vt enmity,
and on Sunday aVL^ru?on had a quarrel.
On Monday, Laviuia went to tho Wind?
sor Hill plantation, where Millhouse
worked. Millhouoe was at borne, and
Lavinia, on seeing him, commenced a
tirade of abuse-among other things ac?
cusing him of having slandered her
daughters. A souffle ensued, and she
knooked him down. She then gave
some signal, and her husband and two
daughters came up. The combined
forces commenced an assault upon Mill
house, who rushed in the bouse, soized
his rule and fled, hotly pursued by tho
attacking force, Laviuia leading. She
came np with Millhouse, and (as he says)
he turned, and, with the rifle caught
with both hands, pushed ber off. She
seized the weapon and he jerked it away.
As he did so, it went off. The ball entered
her neck aad caused her death half nu
hour afterward.-Charleston News.

The regular term of oar Court of Com?
mon riens nod General' Sessions has
been in session for the past two weeks,
uio?t of which timo hasboen consumed
in fha trial nf State oases.- On-Thnraduy
11131? 8 1 fW Ly bra n d. (c o 1 o FC d),. was pu t
upon trial for the murder pf bis wife, on
tho 9 tb of July la3t. . From tho e vide DOO
adduced, it appeared that it was one pf
the most cold-blooded murders that was
over courantt8d in our County-he hav?
ing knocked herir? the bead with a club,
and thou, drowned her in a branch. Tho
grieouer waa most ably defended by Mr.
'ort, of this place,, and-Mr. Cook, of
Orangeburg. ' The State was represented
by Solioitor Talley. The jury rendered
a verdict of guilty. . t, .
Yesterday having been assigned for
the trial of Dr. F. S. Lowie, (our Repre?
sentative in the State Legislature,) for
the homicide of J. Elliott Drafts, in May
last, (for ike seduction of his wife,) and
it being a very exoiting trial, caused
everybody to turn out. At an early
nour, the Court House was crowded
almost .to suffocation. The jury was
composed of eleven whites and one co?
lored. 'Tho case was opened by Solioitor
Talley. After the examination of the
witnesses on part of the State, the pri?
soner offering no evidence. Col. Simeon
Fair opened tho argument for tho de?
fence. He oontended that the testimo?
ny, about which there was no dispute, all
being on the side of the prosecution,
made a case of excusable homicide. Thc
prisoner was rightfully where be w?E
to satisfy himself of the deceased's inten?
tion of. criminal intercourse with bi:
(prisoner's) wife; and although the pro?
vocation was great, yet the danger was sc
urgent that the killing should be ascribed
to tho neoessity, and not the provocation,
when made a case of self-defence. Thc
prisoner had been warned of deceased1!
threats against bis life if he interfered
with his (deceased's) intercourse witl
prisoner's wife. Tho, prisoner bad even
reason to apprehend, from the manne:
of bis approach, as well as from threats,
that deceased designed to take prison er 'i
lifo if he could. The prisoner beld
when the deceased fired, that no alterna
ti vo was left but to protect bis own life, b;
taking that of his adversary. The effor
on th? part of the prosecution to exous
the conduct of the deceased, by showinj
that the prisoner had a difficulty witl
bis wife some months ago, is adding in
ault to injury. Tho man who coul<
coolly calculate on the chance of seduc
tion, where the wife was under the die
Eleasure of ber husband, was a cold
carted murderer-more than the bea?
of prey, who only devoured the body c
his victim: whereas, the seducer minke
life moro dreadful than death itself, an
should be shot down as a wild beast c
prey. Tho question, whether it was oi
ouaablo homicide, in self-defence, was
question' of fact for tho jury; and th
prisoner bad no fears of the result.
He was followed by Mr. Talley, on th
part of the State, who declared that th
ground taken by the prosecution wai
that under the law any provocation, hov
ever enormous, could only reduce an at
mitted killing to manslaughter; and tht
if the evidence proved that there wt
time between the provocation and kil
iug for "cooling," or if there was sati:
factory proof of previous arrangemei
and preparation for the killing, it wt
Mr. Talley was replied to by Colon
Henry A. Meetze, in a brief but able a
After a charge from his Honor Judg
Boozer, the jury retired, and after o
absence of fifteen minutes, returned
verdict of "not guilty." .
Thus has ended ono of the most c:
citing trials that has ever taken place i
onr County. The popularity of tl
prisoner, as well as tho deceased, ar
the circumstances which led to the b
micide, rendered it so. After the trio
Dr. JJ. received tho congratulations l

Among other presentments of t
Grand Jury aro the following:
So far as our information extends, t
public officers of tho County connect
with this Court have discharged tho d
ties of their stations in a proper a
satisfactory manner. No instance of
legal or oppressive conduct on tho pi
of any of these officials has been broug
to our notice or kuowledge. But we t
sorry to say that we cannot speak in t
sumo commondablo terms of the otl
officers of the County-the County Co
missioners, County Auditor aud Tri
surer. We are awuro that the dut
which were formerly performed by tin
different Boards, now devolve upon't
County Commissioners, and that some
the In? ? under which they have to i
arc now and complicated, and we st
poso that thoso gentlemen have dc
what they thought was best under I
circumstances, but tho general co
plaint against them is that they have
tempted more than thoy should have i
dortaken in tho mattor of laying off 1
County i? townships, in their extra
gant estimates for building bridges, II
uncalled-for expenditures of the put
funds, thus involving tho County in
oppressive and ruin ona taxation which
bas'been imposed upon ' them by'tho
Oenernr^Aswuibly. - Wg du nof behove'
thnt tho. proper tvpd : legitimate necessi?
ties or exigencies of thc StfttfetGovern?
ment would require such burdens to bo
imposed upon ber pooplo ns they have
now to bear. Our people complain bit?
terly and justly,^ we believe, of tho ir?
regularity, inequality ?md injustice which
bavo been practiced in the assessment of
property, and think that this matter calls
loudly for reform and amendment. . The
people' of Lexington are a law-abiding
poople; the tax-payers of the County
bavo generally endeavored to meet the
requirements made upon them, but they
do indulge tho sincere hopo that some?
thing will be dono for their relief nnd for
tho relief of the unfortunate and im?
poverished people of the State at large
before they are entirely1 prostrated and
ruined by unjust and exorbitant taxation.
We have always boen taught to believe
in that true republican principio of tho
greatest good to the greatest number;
bot tho system which has been inaugu
I rated seems to be one to enrich and ng
I graudize the few at the expense of tho
many. While wo bear and forbear, we
I shall hope for a bettor day and a bettor

When travelers from the South reach
Augusta, on their way North, they usu?
ally take the new road direct to Colum?
bia in preference to tho old line, by way
of Branchville and Kingsville, not only
for the reason that tho former is a much
shorter route, but also because it affords
greater security in travel, and is adorned
with coaches of tho most beautiful work?

The postmaster in Columbia is a color?
ed man, who, by-the-way, has tho ap?
pearance of being honest and intelligent,
but who has frankly confessed bis utter
unfitness for tho duties and responsibili?
ties of the office to which tho Govern?
ment has appointed him. Ho bas, ac?
cordingly, secured tho services of Mr.
j Lcapbart-a gentleman of large experi?
ence in postal affairs, and a member of
ono of tho first Carolina families. Would
it not bo well for tho colored postmaster
in your beautiful and refined city to
learn a lesson of wisdom from the timely
conduct of his brother in Columbia?
Turner, we understand, was raised on
the old red hills of Carolina, and was

who figured so conspicuously in the
grand battle of Bull Run; but in an act
of rebellion against bis kind and gene?

ginning of the war, he took the under?
ground railroad, and landed in "the hea?

he was taught some .peculiar lessons in
politics and theology. At the cessation
of hostilities, he returned to your State,
in the character of a presiding elder in
tho Methodist Church and a politician of
the most radical type. We do not desire
to dictate to this politico-religious in?
cumbent, or to censure his past conduct;
but wo could fervently wish, for the sake
of the good people of Macon, that ho
would either withdraw from the position
for which he bas no qualifications, or
else that be wonld consent for some com?

that all the material interests of Carolina

more slow nud uncertain. Thc heart of

population, or by radicals, who bavo no
sympathy with the citizens of this sec?

eight negro representatives, and the
Board of Trustees of the State Univer?

THE SCIENCE OF HEALTH AND THE ART
OF HEALING.-HEINITSH'S CELEBRATED
QUEEN'S DELIGHT puts every man in pos?
session of tho means of improving bis
own health. Disorders of the Stomach,
Liver and Bowels are very numerous.
Tho Stomach is tho great centre which
influences tho health or disenso of the
system-abused, debilitated by excess,
indigestion, offensive breath and physi?
cal prostration are the natural conse?
quences; allied to the brain, it is the
source of headaches, mental depression,
nervous complaints and unrefreshing
sleep. Tho Liver becomes affected and
generates bilious disorders, pains in the
side, &c. The Bowels sympathize by
costiveness, diarrhoea and dysentery.
The great power of tho HEINITSH MEDI?

SUMMER READING.-Messrs. Duffie &
Chapman have furnished us with copies
of several works, by well-known authors,
which will aid materially and pleasantly
in killing time during the summer sol?
stice. The first is a republication of
Charles Reade's popular "Love Me
Little, Love Me Long," the price of
which is only thirty-five cents. The
next is "Foul Play," by Charles Reade
and Dion Bou cica ult. This* work has
achieved considerable notoriety-having
been dramatized and performed to ap?
preciative audiences in England as well
os this country. The price of the volume
is twenty-five cents, i Tho third is
1 "Hetty," by Henry Kingsley, anthor of
"Stretton." Tho story is cleverly told,
and is very original; it can scarcely fail
to bc read with interest, as it is very far
above the average run of novels. The
prico is only twenty-five couts. Harper
<fc Brothers are the publishers.
