Tho Winosboro News reports the fol?
lowing Q3 the official vote lot. Fairfeld:
Republican, 2,013; Beform, 1,447. The
News believes there were gross frands, and
states that there'twere ninety-two more
votes cast than, tire knited States census
called for. f
Greenville shows a Reform majority of
about 450. MoKissick received aboat
400 votes more than Wollnce. Messrs.

The Chester Reporter gives the official
result, from which it appears that there
is a radical majority of over 1,800. The
Reporter ascribes fraud to the radicals,
and the grand jory present sixty-five
colored voters for perjury.
The Edgofield Advertiser estimate'? tho
radical majority at about 300.
he Yorkville Enquirer says: "Wo
have seen the result of the official count?
ing of ei s boxes in York. Judging by
thefee, it will not surprise ns to hear that
Scott is elected Governor by 150,000
?majority, and Waliae? elected to Con?
gress' by1 '257)00 majority. These
figures m?y?aa well be' selected for the
official returns as any others."
^Marion gives a Reform majority of
about $00-Messrs. Allen, Miles, Bass
and Sellers, Reformers, elected to the
Ju the city of Charleston, the Reform
majority-Is over 300. Carpenter received
2,377;'Soott received 2,114.
The official account shows in Orange
ourg a radical majority of over 2,000. lt
is Esid that there were more votes in a
number of boxes than the poll list called
The Sleeping Beauty, of Kentucky,
Miss 8asan Godsey, of whom BO much
has been said the past few years about
her having slept for twenty years, or
.thereabouts, with only short intermis?
sions for rest and refreshments, has been
taken to St. Louis and Bat on by a coro?
ner's jury of dootors, who pronounced
her a gigantic humbug. It always look?
ed" like a humbug. The idea that any
-woman, endowed by nature with a
tongue, and such weapons of aggressive
warfare, should deliberately sleep for
years, when there were men around con?
tinually that she.could practice on with
her tongue, was simply absurd. We
are glad, for many reasons, that Susan
has been proved to be a sell, and expect
she will now make up for tho lost time,
by taking the stump in favor of female
suffrage, or something.

facts, to change the issue. It was to be
expected, that under the oppressive
measures instituted by Governor Scott,
over a people accustomed to liberty,
thcro should have been some instances,
in which there would havo been indi?
vidual indignation against the interven?
tions and oppressions of his armed
militia, for sometimes even the worm
will rise against the heel that seeks to

harmony, good order and peace. But
wo do not desire, when the people of
South Carolina havo been denied a fair

Tho Chestor News says:
"It is not, then, mere child's play to
argue that Governor Scott, because he
is re-elected, is worthy of confidence and
trust? Is it not pure baby-talk to plead
that a rogue should be welcomed into
the bosom of society because, by pack?

repentance for the past, nor has he pro?
mised to do better in the future. To?

the deadly enemy of this people-the
enemy of their progress, their prosperity
their peace. Two years must pass be?

O UK POLITICAL TROUBLE.-The Winns
boro Naa-s says: The poot Gr>iy tells us,
"All aro mon;
Condemned alike to groan,
The tender, lor another's pain,
The unfeeling, for hi? own."
The lot of suffering that is thus true of
individuals, is also true of communities.
Where is tho community which is not
this moment troubled by some chronic
evil which bailies tho wisdom of man to
cure? Tho problem of the races, under
the condition of their political equality,
is tho trouble of the South. It is a diffi?
cult and harassing problem. Yet with
property in thc hands of the whites, with
the blacks in a minority in most of the
States, and soon to bo in a minority in
all of them, it is a problem far easier to
solve, with some degree of satisfaction
at the result, than tho conflict of labor
against capital, of property and educa?
tion against indigence, ignorance and
vice, a3 it exists, at this very moment, in
Wc are ruled by tho inferior material
exalted to} oflico by the votes of a casto
in South Carolina. But for oeuturies,
the middle classes and tho laboring
masses havo been compelled in Europe
to bear the burdens imposed by a go?
vernment no wiser, and certainly not a
moro of their own choice. It is a sound
philosophy, therefore, which will pa?
tiently endure the troubles which no
efforts that wo can make can remedy.
Thc shore of politics has ever been tho
arena of couflict, of ambitious bicker?
ing, of crimnation and recrimination, of
tho rcvorse of peace and repose. Those
who cannot moderate their passions
should avoid it, unless they prefer a vo?
luntary unhappiness. But to such as
can command themselves, tho reflections,
nn.y, tho very disappointments, that linv
ving to do with political affairs involves,
provo the means of their steady progress
in wisdom and in goodness, and, though
it is supposed that piety and politics are
opposed, wo do not hesitate to add, in
true roligion and virtuo.

Tho KlectloJa OB Wednesday. v.'
The most infamousfraud ?ter t??jrt?>
trated ?nerra?plo waa enacted m thia
County & Wednesday. Tho iniquitous
?lection not 'of the radical party, con?
ceived for fraud, waa carried ont to the
letter. The Kershaw and Bansier agree?
ment was refused by the Commissioners
and Managers. It will require the offi?
cial connt to give the result. At least
800 fraudulent negro yotes were cast at
the four precinots in this village. One
hundred fraudulent radical negro votes
were polled at Clinton. More than 1,000
fraudulent votes were polled by the
On Tuesday night thc negroes from all
parts of the County massed in thin place.
The radical Managers paid little regard
to challenges. At least 200 boys under
age, from sixteen and upwards, wore al?
lowed to vote. Many cast their votes at
all of the four precinots in the village,
and afterwards voted at the County pre?
cincts. Many voted in the County and
afterwards at all of the village precints.
The whito vote is solidly for the Union
Beform ticket. The negro radical vote
will aggergate in excess of their nume?
rical strength, while many voted for Re?
form, and hnndreds were not at the polls.
It is estimated that abont 2,400 or 2,500
votes were polled at this place; at Clin?
ton 1,000. At Cross Hill, Hamilton's,
Lyons and Scuffletown, probably 1,000
to 1,500 ballots were cast largely for Re?
form. Thus the entire County vote will
bo between 4,500 and 5,000. Deducting
the fraudulent votes, the Reform party
have won by a handsome majority.
Joe Crews, a candidate for the House,
is a commissioner of election. Powell,
tho radical candidate for Judge of Pro?
bate, acted as a manager at this placo.
Other managers were candidates. Only
three of the managers, Davenport,
Abercrombie and Pool, are recognized as
To the native scoundrels (Crews and
Owens) who were commissioners, and
not so much to the carpet-baggers, is at?
tributable this infamous rascality.
About 12 m., during the election at
the precinct where Powell acted as a
manager, upon some yelling in tho
streets, Powell bolted, and was seen no
more during the day. The remaining
managers closed the poll and it was not
opened again as required by law.
During the day a large budy of ne?
groes repaired to Crews' house, where
tho militia arms are stationed, and took
up arms. This was done under Crews'
ordors, it is said. Under tho circum?
stances the whites exhibited extraordi?

SUICIDE.-Wo are pained to announce
the death, from suicide, of Mr. T. J.
Wescott, a student of tho Theological
Seminary in this city. On Thursday
lase, in his room in the Seminary board?
ing house, between 5 nud G o'clock, in a
fit of mental aberration, he cut his
throat with a rnzor. Mr. Wescott was
known to bo subject to attacks of gloom?
iness, and his most intimate associates
have, for some months past, feared that
his mind was at times seriously affected
by them. Disordered health, acting
upon his peculiar temperament, was,
doubtless tho cause of these attacks.
This afflictive event was a great shock
to the fellow-students of Mr. Wescott
to his instructors and to this community.
His attendance hero for several years
had made him known as a most diligent
and successful student and pious chris?
tian. His occasional preaching and lec?
tures exhibited fine talents, and gave
uncommon promise of future usefulness.
Mr. Wescott was from Smithville, not far
from Wilmington, N. C., aud was about
27 years old. His funeral was preached
by Dr. Manly, who evinced the deepest
emotion. His remains wero forwarded
to his family according to their request,
that they may rest with his kindred dust.
A THEATRICAL- INCIDENT.-The New
Orleans Picayune sa3's: A countryman at
the theatre, the other night, as the es?
cort of some ladies, retired at au inter?
mission, and returned with a pound or
two of peanuts wrapped in a paper, and
two hugo bananas sticking from his
pocket. Jnst then, however, and before

actresses, who had especially won his
admiration, camu io tho foot-lights aud

heart, and, unable to restrain his do

There was a momentary astonishment
visible upon tho faces on tho stage, a
single interval of hesitation, which was
removed by tho countryman's voice, full

DON'T Huimr.-Beliovo in traveling
on step by step; don't expect to be rich
in a jump. Slow aud sure is better than

[John Ploughman's Talks.
A correspondent of the Independent,
traveling in Sweden, was immensely de?
lighted Arith the coffee served on the
steamboats and in the hotels. "At
Upsala," ho writes, "wo determined to
find out how they made such perfect
coffeo ns we had just drunk and stepped
into the neat kitchen of the little hotel;
and this was tho report: Take any kind
of coffee-pot or uru, and suspend a bag
made of felt or very heavy flaunel, so
long that it reaches the bottom, bound
on a wiro just fitting the top; put in the
fresh ground, pure cofl'ee and pour on
freshly-boiled water. The fluid filters
through tho bng, and may bo used at
once; needs no settling and retains all its
aroma. The advantage of this over tho
ordinary filter is its economy, as tho
coffeo stands and soaks out its strength
instead of merely letting the water pass
through it. "Do yon boil it," inquired
the learner. "Na-a-a-ay," said tho maid
in simple astonishment that any one
should be so wasteful as to send the pre?
cious aroma away in steam; should rob
that prince of food of that evanescent
something which constitutes his nobility
and rduce him to mere aliment. As soon
would one think of throwing awoy that
drop of sunshine, charged with all the
summer's gold, which lies ut the throat
of a bottle of Johannisberger."
How MONKEYS AIIE CAUGHT.-From
the chapter of menageries, in Oliver
Logan's "Beforo the Foot Lights and
Beliiud the Scenes," we make tho fol?
Monkeys aro such cunning creatures,
one would suppose them moro difficult
to catch thun other wilds animals.
Pitt-falls will take a lion, and the fa?
mished monarch of the forest will, after
a few day's starvation, dart into a cage
containing food, and thus bo secured.
But how aro monkeys caaght? The ape
family resembles man. Their vices nre
human. They love liquor and fall. In
Durfour and Sanaar, the natives, make
fermented heer, of which monkeys are
passionately fond. Aware of this, the
natives go to tho parts of the forests
frequented by the monkeys, and set on
the ground calabashes full of thc entic?
ing liquor. As soon ns the monkey sees
and tastes it, h? utters loud cries of
joy, that soon attract his comrades.
Then au orgie begins, and in a short
time tho beasts show all degrees of in?
toxication. Then thc negroes appear.
They aro too far gone to distrust them,
but apparently take them for larger
species of their own genus. The ne?
groes take soino np, and then begin
immediately to weep aud cover them
with kisses. When a negro takes one by
tho hand to lead him oil', the nearest mon?
key will cling to tho ono who thus fiucls
a support, and endeavor to go off also.
Another will grasp at him, and so on,
till the negro leads a staggering lino of
ten or a dozen tipsey monkeys. When
finally brought to tho village, they are
securely oaged, and gradually sobered
down; but for two or three days, a gra?
dually diminishing supply of liquor
is given them, so ns to reconcile them hy
degrees to their state of captivity.

MR. FOIITVPST'S RICHELIEU.-The Wil?
mington Journal makes the following
uotico of Mr. Forrest:
"Bulwer's chaste and easy pen un?
doubtedly attained its crowning stroke
of beauty and elegance when it fashioned
tho play of Richelieu. Bat however
great the purity of language with which
the drama is clothed, it does not exceed
the interest of the plot. In his parti?
ality, (so natural and exouBable,) the
author has pictured the mighty cardinal
and astute statesman in the additional
character and nobler garb of the patriot,
and iu the more tender benevolence of
character and purer inner life divests the
terrible Richelieu of that selfish thirst
for, and cager gloating over, power
which history has ascribed to him.
"To say that Mr. Forrest thoroughly
conceived aud appreciated the character
whioh he essayed to represent, and most
magnificently succeeded in represent?
ing, on his first appearance in our city
last night, would bo a useless avowal on
our part. For more than forty years he
has reigned a mighty actor upon the
boards he ever trod with so rightful and
majestic a tread, safely maintaining- hi?
ofty eminence ou the highest pinnacle
of dramatic fumo. Well and justly did
he fit the measure of our expectation,
aud he was all that the reports of his
greatness painted to our craving. Bat
the high order or merit and established
reputation of Mr. Forrest renders bar
"Tho troupe by which he is supported
is much above the average of ordinary
stock companies. Miss Lillie is indeed
a charming actress, and in the character
of Julie do Mortimer won a title to the
highest encomiums. Her acting is
graceful, elegant and expressive, with a
purity of accent and prononciation plea?
sant to hear. Mr. Harris as DeMaaprat
gave to the character much emphasis and
spirit, the el?'eet of which was greatly-in?
creased by his flue manly figure and ap?
pearance. Mr. Arnold as tho Count De
Baradas is deserving of credit, while Mr.
Mitchell as Fat her Joseph contributed to
the interest of the performance. The
other members of the troupe fitted the
several characters as well as could be ex?
pected, while the really elegant costumes
constituted a pleasing feature."
Richelieu will be rendered at Jauney's
Flail, this evening, by Mr. Forrest and
