'Let our Ju ct Censure
Attend the True Event.'
BY J. A. SELBY
COLUMBIA. 8. C.. SATURDAY MORNING. APRIL 9. 1870
VOL. YI-NO. 18.
ISxcoutloix of a FlenrtUh. Murderer.
OD Friday, was bung at West Union,
Iowa, Andrew Thompson, for tho mur?
der of Mrs. Hsggerty and her three chil?
dren. The story ?B: John Haggerty,
who lived near McGregor, Iowa, went to
the war, and Thompson seduced his
young wife. This became known in tho
vicinity, and when Heggarty came home,
finding it out, he left the couutry, not to
return. Thompson, who had a wife and
eight children, took Mrs. Haggerty to
his farm, where she resided in a cottage.
In the fall of '68, she becoming preg?
nant, and he growing tired of her, he
first removed her to tho neighboring
town, and thence ono day in mid-winter
he took her and her children, under tho
pretence of moving them to a comforta?
ble homo. Meeting persons, he said he
was moving n family to Illinois. Ho
crossed tho river, and for days and
nights drove the poor woman and her
little ones about, ovidently tor tho pur?
pose of freezing them to death.
A few nights after ho commenced this
terrible journey, people near tho Missis?
sippi beheld a bright light on its shore,
and pitied the poor family whoso house
they supposed to bo on firo that pitilessly
cold night. As that fire burned, Andrew
Thompson was driving his horses rapidly
away towards home, und or tho secret of
n dark winter's night. He was all alone,
and the coverings, straw, furniture, and
trunks, which had been in tho sleigh
before, were missing-they hod mndo
tho fire on the bank of tho river. Mrs.
Haggerty, with her infant, her daughter,
aged fourteen years, one son, aged eleven
years, and another, aged eight, wero
under tho ice. Either they had been
tnrned upon by the fiend and stabbed
or beaten to death, one by one, or they
had been taken, numbed and helpless,
owing to the cold, and forced through a
hole in the ice to be drowned. Tho
theory that they were first murdered or
partially killed in the sleigh, is the more
plausible, as in the other euee, there
would have been no blood-stained robes
and furniture to bo destroyed by fire.
All of Thompson's acquaintances sup?
posed that he had becu to Illinois, and
left the unfortunate family in a comfor?
table- home, and ho was not suspected of
any crime. In tho spring of 1869, the
frozen waters of tho Mississippi began
breaking np, and the boatmon went to
work caulking and re-painting their
boats. Some of them wero working at
the shore of the river near Prairie du
Chien, when they discovered several
trunks, half rotted by tho water. They
were pulled out, and on being opened,
they were found to contain two like?
nesses and sundry articles of woman's
The likenesses proved to bo thoBO of
Andrew Thompson's father and mother,
and the other articles were tho former
Sroperty of Mrs. Haggerty. Only a few
ays after, the body of Mrs. Haggerty
and the bodies of her children were
found in a slough near the river's bank
at Oassville. The remnants of a fire was
discovered on tho shore near by, and in
tho ashes were particles of the clothing
whioh formerly belonged to the murder?
ed woman. Every scrap of circum?
stantial evidence was collected, and a
perfect ohain was made, link after link,
proving the murder of tho whole family
to have been committed by Thompson.
Ho was tried, convicted, and wus hung
on Friday. He stands in the criminal
calendar as ono of tho most brutal of
Tho Empress, disguised as a Sister of
Charity, under the escort of M. do
Losseps, joined tho Prince Imperial at
the Marine Hotel, Hastings, on Satur?
day. Tho despatches say that the scene
at the meeting *>f tho mother and son "is
not described, because those who wit?
nessed it say that it was indescribable."
King William hus written to the Queen
about bis meeting with Napoleon. He
says: "It was overwhelming for a mo?
ment. I could not control myself on
thus meeting him whom three years ago
I saw at the summit of grondeur. Tho
Emperor was equally moved."
The directors of tho fair which is to
take place at San Antonio, Texas, on the
5th of October, have made a proposal
that every handsome young lady in tho
Stato shall send a photograph of herself
to tho fuir, and a committeo will select
tho most boautifnl, and have a picture
painted of tho lady, according to tho.
photograph, and present it to her as a
prize. Tho ladies who expect to com?
pote aro requested to assume a standing
position, dressed in a flowing robe, in
order to give better effect to the paint?
ing, which is to bo life-sizo.
Rumors of a speedy penac continue.
Tho London Times declares that if tho
terms proposed by Thiors are at all rea?
sonable, England will back them. Tho
London Post, howevor, claiming to
speak officially, says tho neutrals have
abandoned all hopes of suspending hos?
tilities. Still, ou tho other hand, it is
said that the opposition of Russia to the
dismemberment of Prance is so decided
that tho Czar will proposo a Congress to
sottlo terms of. peace. Peoplo can take
their choice of these despatches. It
would, howover, seem that tho effort to
secure a speedy peace is so determined
that it is not altogether hopeless.
The quartz minors of California are
satisfied that tho coming winter is to bo
a long and a wot season, and aro prepar?
ing accordingly. It has been noticed in
lower California that tho swallows and
the marlins raised their broods quickly
this summer, and departed, aud this is

Tho publication of tho King of Prus?
sia's lettor to tho Pope, in answer to tho
proposal made by his Holiness to medi?

which wore previously so strong in favor
of Franco, iu tho direction of Germany.
Such at least is tho news from Dublin.

ED.-Tho maxim that tho voico of thc pcoplo
io the voico of tho divinity, may, in eomo
cauca, he open to doubt, but tho testimony of |
honcat and enlightened witneaeea, extending
through a series of years, and all to tho samo
purport, ia worthy of credence, admita ot no
(?ueation. Upon such testimony, tho reputa?
tion of H OST ETTElt'8 STOMACH BITTERS,
aa an antidoto and cure for many ailment.*, ie
baaed. During tho twenty yexra that it lias
hoon heforo tho world, innumerable prepara?
tions intended to compete with it, have gono
up like rockets, and como down tho extin?
guished sticks. Meanwhile, the progress of j
that incomparable tonic has been swilt and
steady-always upward and onward, like tho
eagle's flight. Its introduction produced a
revolution in therapeutics, and it proved to bo
ono of thone salutary revolutions that cannot
go backwards. To-day, HoSTETTEB's BITTEIIB
is ono of tho most popular remedies iu chris?
tendom, and commands a larger salo than any
other medicinal preparation, domestic or im?
ported, on this ot tho Atlantic. As a euro for
dyspepsia, bilious disorders, nervous affec?
tions, general debility, and as a preventive of |
opidemic foverB, il takes precedence of every
other remedy. This fact should teach tho am?
bitious country doalora who endeavor to foist
thoir local abortions on tho public in its atoad,
how futilo their small attempts to cajolo tho
community must necessarily bo. Where the

ASIATIC CHOLERA IN CHINA_AL?
MOST EVERT CASK CURED WITH PAIN KIM,KU.
[From Rov. R. Telford, Missionary in China,
now visiting his homo in Pennsylvania.]
DEAU Sins: During a residence of Borne ten
years as a missionary in Siam and China, I
found your Vegetable Tain Killer a most valu
anio remedy for that fearful scourge, Cholera.
In administering the medicine, I found it
moat effectual to givo a teaspoonful of Pain
Killer in a gill of hot water, awoetcned with
augar; then, after about fifteen minutes, begin
to give about a teaspoonful of tho samo mix?
ture every few minutes until relief waa ob?
tained. Apply hot applicationa to tho extremi?
ties. Kathe the stomach with tho Pain Killer,
cloar, and rub tho li m h s briskly. Of those
who had tho Cholera, and took the medicine

residing in Shanghai, I found it an almost
certain euro for Cholera, if used in time. In

A dressing -winch,

for preserving tho
hair. Faded or gray
hair is soon restored
to its original color,
icith thc gloss and
freshness of yoidh.
Thin hair is thick?
ened, falling bair checked, and bald?
ness often, though not always, cured
by its use. Nothing can restore the
hair whore tho follicles arc destroyed,
or thc glands atrophied and decayed.
But such as remain can be saved for
usefulness by this application. Instead
of fouling the hair with a pasty sedi?
ment, it will keep it clean ana vigorous".
Its occasional uso will prevent tho hair
from turning gray or falling off, anti
consequently prevent baldness. Free
from those deleterious substances 'which
make sonic preparations dangerous, and
injurious to tho hair, the Vigor can
only benefit but not harm it. If wanted
merely for a

Containing neither oil nor dye, it does
not soil white cambric, and yet lasts
long on thc hair, giving it a rich, glossy
lustre and a grateful perfume.
