FIRE IN WILLIAMSBURG DISTRICT.-We
regret to learn, says the Kingatree Star,
ot the 18th instant, that the dwelling
house of Mr. Thomas M. MoCutohen,
in the neighborhood of Indiantown, was
destroyed by fire on Sabbath ovening
last. The fire originated on tho top of
the building, and was caused by a spark
from tho ohimnoy. Mr. McOatohon's
attention wus first attracted to the fire
by a negro who happened to be passing
along the road at the limo. With the
asnistance of this man, Mr. McOutohen
succeeded in saving his bedding, cloth?

Tlie Lunatic Asylum.
To THE EnrroBS or TUK PHOSXIX: Despite
my indisposition to appear in tho public
prints, it is due to my honor that I should
adopt tho present means of exculpating my?
self from ths responsibility, which you said
editorially, yesterday, in an ar tide entitled
"Another Swindle Exposed-The Lunatic
Asylum and Coal," attaohes to "some of the
regents" of that institution. ;
The bia tory of the transaction yon alluded
to isBUCoinotly this, so far as I am concerned:
At a meeting of the Board of Bogante, held |
on the 8th of September last, Dr. ?naor, the
Superintendent of the Asylum, made a report,
in which, amongst other matters, he called
attention to the faot that.a quantity of coal
faiad been delivered at the asylnm without his
! order, and without the knowledge of the
? steward, and added, that maa much as the
.transaction waa directly in violation of the
j by-law?, which require all purchases for the
institution to be made auder the direction of
the Superintendent, he wished the Board to
adopt some certain pr notice on the subject, in
order that be might govern himself accord?
Inquiry developed the faot that Mosers.
Taylor and Crews, claiming that they had
j heoa appointed by tho Board a committee for
this purpose, had famished the coal in a
quantity said to amount to loo tons. ' Having
no recollection of tbe appointment of any
such committee, and being iu possession of
no oflfmal information to that effect, I noil-1
fled tue Board that I should withhold my ap-1
! proval of the bill when it waa presented; but
moved "that when the bill for the freight ot
the ooal was presented, the Superintendent
ha authorized to endorse the approval of the
i Board upon the eaim>"-regarding this as a
??implo act of justice to tho South Carolina
Itaifroad Company, which had furnished tho
This motion waa adopted, ami, immediately
afterwards,! offered tho following resolution:
j Whereas tho moaning of Section C. of the
I by-l?wa "adopted by the Board of Begonia for
the .government of thia institution, seoma to
haveneen miaintorpreted heretofore:
Resolved, That hereafter the Board will not
pay any billa for the supplies of the institu?
tion, the purohaae of which waa not author?
ized io writing by tho Superintendent.
Upon tho paaaugo of this resolution I called
the yeas and naya, and it waa loat by a voto ot
yeas 2, naya 4- ouo other regent and myself
voting in the affirmative.
This virtually ended the transaction, ao far
aa 1 am concerned. Neither officially, nor
otherwise, do I know how, or when, tho com?
mittee claiming to have boeu authorized to
make tho purchase of the coal waa appointed.
Nor do I now know of whom, or by whom, it
was bought; how much ot it waa delivered at
the asylum, or to other parties, if any at all;
whether it has boan paid forby ibo aay hun, or
by anybody else; or bow mueh, if any, ia on
hand now-except BO far aa I have derived my
information on these subjects from tho com?
munication of Dr. Ensor, published in your
iaauo of yesterday.
I have been preaont at every mooting of tho
Board, as Jar aa my recollection extends,
which has been held during tho past twelve
months; and, whilst courting the must rigid
I scrutiny of all my ofiloial acts, I appeal to the
['record to prove that, in tho discharge ot my
* duties, I nave been actuated wholly by the
most siooero desire io promt.io tho boat inte?
resta of an institution wnioh appeal? alike to
private and public humanity for its protection
and maintenance. HENRY SPARNICK.

The Columbia correspondent of the

Some time ago, there was introduced
Si the' House a bill to "incorporate tho

der of United Brethren of Sooth Caro?
lina. The preamble of the bili is aa fol?
"Whereas the farmer, mechanic and
laborer have but little or no opportu?
nity, by reason of their daily vocation,
tb avail themselves of the benefits do
rived from the free school system, and
wishing, through a charitable and bene?
volent association, to furnish a source
for the general diffusion of knowledge to
that claus of our citizens above alluded
to; therefore," etc.
This apparently innocent document
was referred to the Committee on Reli?
gious and Charitable Institutions, of
which Mr. J. E. Hogood is the Chair?
man. With an innocence that was natural,
the Committee were misled by the spe?
cious preamble, and submitted a favora- !
ble report, under the impression that
the order was what the preamble pur- '
ported it to be. Bot au enterprising j
Republican, who had a keener adapta
bility for nosing ont these things, has |
just ascertained that this United Breth?
ren is nothing more nor less than a kind
of independent Ku Klux organization
outside the Union League, composed of
sworn adherents to tho Governor, and
having for its object tho perpetuation in
power of the present Stato dynasty.
The matter was found out by a promi?
nent State official, who is not in thc
riug, and who attended a meeting of the
ooucern. Prince Rivers, a sable repre?
sentative from Edge?eld, is the grand
chief of this dusky Ku Klux, and none
but sworn friends of Oov. Scott aro to
bo admitted to its conclaves. There is a
chance for Major Merrill, Mr. Corbin
and Judge Bond-a veritablo conspiracy
of the worst order, and the strong arm
of the Government, which has been
stretched over this laud of ours for the
past six months, will lind moro work, if
it is in earnest. Tho only way in which
Gov. Scott and his Ku Klux can avoid
indictment, is to pledge the order to the
support of Grant. It is stated that the
new Ku Klux will bo armed with State
arms and paid out of "monies not other?
The Now ?ork Tribune Baja:
"The Hight of Dr. Avery, one of the
arraigned members of the South Caro?
lina Ku Klux, will demoralize still fur?
ther tho 'Conservatives' of that region."
No ono in this region is surprised or
demoralized at the escape of tho Doctor.
The wonder is, that every man who has
charges preferred against him before the
South Carolina court, who has a chance
of escaping, don't do so. A deoeut
white man stands very little ohanoe be?
fore a court orowded with low, illiterate,
purchased negro witnesses, and proaidod

DEATH or A WELL-KNOWN COLOR KO
CITIZEN.-Dudley Ta?j?y, well known io
all the (?>ld citizens of Greenvillebiiy and
County, died ?t, his reaide??e, in Green?
ville, on Saturday, morning, 6th instant;
Sged seventy-three. He was a remarka?
ble negro in many re?p^et?. When a
slave, belonging to the late Captain D.
Long, ba earned for himself near $800.
He bought the 'freedom of his son for
$800. The son, unfortunately, died
soon after. He remained a slave t??
after his master's death. Having accu?
mulated some $150 prior to the sals of |
Captain Long's personal property, seve?
ral years before the war, he requested a
gentleman, in whom he.had confidence,
to buy him at the sale and giVe him his
liberty, and that ho .would repay tho
sum, which was $050. This waa done.
Truo to his word, he, by little and little,
added to the $150, extinguished the
debt. He also accumulated sufficient to
buy a boose and lot, and died owning
real estate of considerable valne. Dud?
ley was respected for hts industry, bo?
nos ty and native good 'sense. '' He was a
moral ?md religious man, having for
many years been an active member of
the Baptist Church. He waa attached
to his friends, white and black, He
bad a great regard for Rey. Dr.' Wil?
liams, of the Theological Seminary ot
this place, and had expressed the wish
ho should preach his-funeral. Thia Dr.
Williams did, on Sunday, 7th instant, in
the colored Baptist Church, before a
large congregation. Among them were
some of our most respectable white citi?
zens. Gubriel Fool, pastor of the
oburch, performed tho burial service at
thu grave.-Greenville Enterprise.
EDGEFIELD TO DE NAKROWBD DOWN ON '
BOTH SIDES.-Edgefield has lately yield? I
ed much of her territory on the South
to the new County of Aiken, and now
there, seems to be a probability that abo
will have to give np a large nook oh the
Northern side to the proposed new1
County of Ninety-Six. A petition for
tho establishment of this new County
to be formed from portions of Edgefield,
Abbeville, Newberry and Laurens, with
the Court Houso at Ninety-Six-is now
bi'foro the Legislature. As regards the
mutter, Edgefield baa no territory to
spare, and yet we feel assured, from all
we know and hear of this project, that
ita success will make Edgefield, Abbe?
ville, Lauren? and Newberry-each ono
-n Democratic unit. The new County
will cou tain at the outset a large colored
or Republican majority, and will, in all
probability, bo a haven and refuge for
Republican voters, who will migrate
thitherwards, in immense numbers, from
all four Counties, leaving the said Coun?
ties tindor tho control of Demooratio
majorities. This promising to bo tho
case, we havo nothing to urge against
tho formation of the new County. Oar
Domocratio friends in the new County,
however, must not understand us as be?
ing in the slightest degree pleased at
any disadvantage which may accrue to
thom from the new arrangement.
A N?ono OP CHEST KR COUNTY/T?BNINQ
WHITE.-I owned a negro whose parents
aro as blftk as any original, African, and
so was she until about twenty-three
years old, when, without any apparent
canse, white spots began to make their
appearance-, aud have continued to do
so. She is now forty-flvo years old, and
is almost white; even the scalp of her
head is perfectly white, withont injury
lo her hair. Her hands are very tender,
smooth and white. Any one wishing to
soo her will find her not far from Ross?
ville. Hore is a ohanoe for some South
Carolnian to make money, as some peo?
ple make it fashionable to attend shows.
