Sometime since a oomraunicaiion ap?
peared in the columns of tue Winnsboro
News calli cg the yoong men of the
State to the rese?e. . The idea, in some
respects, ?B a good one, Sod shonld be
entertained by . both the old and the
young. The campaign of next autumn
mast be a desperate one, if honesty is
to win the day against corruption and
villainy. Affairs have reached Bach a
crisis that they cannot remain stationary.
The revolution must go still farther; the
ring mast exhibit still further evidonoo
of their "dnbridled audaoity/-or else a
rovulsion will, of necessity, ensue, and
the innate qualities of honesty and
virtue once more assert .themselves, and
take the proud position they once held
in our brighter days. The former alter?
native is impossible; there is no insult
which has not been offered; there is no
villainy that has been left undone; there
is no crime which has not been perpe?
trated; there is no outrage upon a de?
fenceless .people that lins not been in
Uictcd. - .Weean congratulate '^ourselves
that- our cup of -misfortune -has been
filled,und' any other att?mpt will only
cause it to run,over.
Such beiug-the cuso,*ro can cherish
the secret hope that better days may
soon dawn on us. Through the gluss of
faith We fancy, wo see the silver lining
??to-tho dark cloud, proclaiming that the
glorious sun will soon 6hed his rays,
warming and revivifying oar chilled
limbs, and infusing now life and new
vigor in our breasts.
Bat faith without works is dead. Yuin
speculations and idle dreamings ar? of
no avail in these matter-of-fact days.
Success can only be achieved by cease?
less labor; and if we expect to redeem
our State, wo. must pull off oar coats
and work manfully. Oar next campaign
must be characterized by lesa talking
and more-Work. . A dozen quiet, ener?
getic workers will aid'a canse moro than
twice the number of orators, with all
their rhetorical flowers.
The majority of tho voters in our
State are just such mea as can be best
influenced in a qniot way. They are
naturally of a good disposition, easily
'influenced for good or for evil. It ia not
the eloquence of a Chamberlain, bat the
qaiet influence of the league, whioh at
every eleetion rolls np snob majorities.
Now, what we need is jost such hard
workers as have been described. In
every County, in every township, these
should be found, ever on the alert,
making the best of every opportunity
presented to them, Ia matters of coun?
cil, let the wisdom of age and experience
direct; but for work, auch as is required
by the political necessities of the hour
in South Carolina, we must depend upon
and call into exercise the active energies
of youth. Upon our young men rosta

A resolution to impeach Robert K.
Scott, Qovernor of South Carolina, foi
high crimes and misdemeanors, was in?
troduced into the House of Representa?
tives, by Whipper, yesterday, and laid
over, uuder the rules, We admire this
oolored member's persistency in endea?
voring to hold to account him who, while
Ohief Magistrate of the commonwealth,
has been the chief robber of tbe public
Treasury. There is indeed but the re?
motest, if any hopes, of a successful im?
peachment of Gov. Scot' before the pre?
sent Legislature. Por, besides the
acknowledged venality of a majority ol
that body, and their slavish subserviency
to the power and patronage of Scott,
not a few of tho' most influential and
active members, both in the House ami
Senate, have boen participants in, or ac?
cessories to, all his criminal transactions
and they are well aware that a full and
searching investigation into the offioia
misconduct of his Excellency would dis
dose numerous ugly incidents in theil
own career that might result in a lengthy
sojourn on the banks of the Congarco at
Mr. Stolbrand's pets.
But thojgh the efforts of Whippet
and those who sustain him in tho move
ment against Scott and the ring b<
futile, in so far as his aotual remova
from office is concerned, their zeal ii
commendable. They are working ii
the line of duty and of right, and what
ever sinister motives their enemies ant
Scott's paid sycophants may charg<
against them, it is bat fair and just t<
presume that they ore actuated by ear
nest convictions and an honest desire t<

It is said that $100,000 was spent to
defeat impeachment before. If so, an?

TUE COUNTERFEIT FIFTY DOLLAR NOTE.
The following is a full description of the
j 850 counterfeit of the new greenback
issue, series of 1860:
i This is tho first note of the issue that
has boon counterfeited, and can readily
I be detected by the poor quality of the
engraving, while the paper upon which
the note is printed is not at all like the
genuine. Bunning through the paper
I of the genuine issue isa fibre resem?
bling bits of thread or oolored silk, also
a narrow strip of blue, whioh is termed
ithe "localized Obro," extending from
the bottom'to the top of the note, on
the right side. This ia made of certain
material interwoven in tho.paper during
its making-a secret process known only
to.the inventors, which has undoubtedly
proved a great check to counterfeiting.
The large red seal of the Treasury in the
centre of the note, also the oyotoid num?
ber panel ornamented with scrolls, are
wanting in the counterfeit. The vig?
nette-the return of peace-on the left
side the note, (Peace holding in her
hand a statue of Mercury,) is coarsely
engraved, the dark . drapery having a
scratchy appearance and none of the
graceful folds,- produced by lightB and
shades, whioh will be observed in the
genuine note. The feet of thc figure are
badly drawn; also upon the right arm,
as seen upon the genuine note, is a
bracelet, strongly defined, while in the
counterfeit it is hardly perceptible.
Upon the upper left corner of the note
is a shield, with tho monogram "U. S.
nnder whioh a ribbon, with the motto,
"EPluribus Unum;" in the genuine it
is quite readable, while in the counter?
feit it is blurred and the letters are badly
formed. Over the letter "U" of thc let?
ters "United States" is the lettering
"series of 1869." Between the words
"series of" and "1869" in the genuine
there is a emull flourish, but in the coun?
terfeit there is uone. In fact, the whole
general appearance of the face of the
note is bad, abd bas a decided litho?
graphic look; also in leugth it is one
eighteenth of an inch shorter than the
genuine. Tho reverse of the counter?
feit, composed of lettering and geome?
trical lathe work, is a close imitation of
the gonaine note.
LOWREY AT WORK AGAIN-ANOTHER
DEBU OF BLOOD.-On Sunday night,
obout ll o'olook, Mr. W. C. McNeill,
about sixty or seventy years of age, liv?
ing at Moss Neck, in Robeson County,
heard a noise in his smoke-house, and
upon going out and finding that some
one was inside be asked what they were
doing. The reply was: "It is none of
j your business!" Mr. McNeill answered,
"I will show you whether it is any of my
business or not," and returned to the
boase for his gun. Securing his weapon
be went back into the yard, bis wife aud
daughter, who were of course badly
frightened, following him as far as tho
piazza aud trying to dissuade bim from
iuterfuring with them. Justas they bad
?stepped into the piazza a volley was fired
from the robbers in the smoke-bouse,
whioh resulted in tho shooting of Mrs.
McNeill in tho thigh, and her daughter,
a young lady about eighteen or uineteen
years old, in the shoulder, but not hurt?
ing Mr. McNeill. The young lady is re?
ported to be mortally wounded, but it is
believed that Mrs. McN. will recover.
Mr. McN. recognized the voice of Henry
Berry Lowrey in the spokesman of tin
parAy, and as there were four shots in the
v o tray fired, it is taken for granted that
he had at least three of his gang with
bim. After the shooting, the outlaws re?
tired. Mr. McNeill was the father-in
law of Mr. John Taylor, who was mur?
dered by the outlaws at Moss Neck, and
is owner of the mill property at that
place. Grout excitement prevails
throughout the County.

?erB* Vfi?ows," appears in the Pennsyl"
?ania Republican, from which the follow'
ing io au eitract : _?,
''.' Another very courtabie widow WBB a
?oung lady of Washington, Pa. She
eoame engaged to a yoong man named
Bobert -4-~in 1840.- Her father,
however, objected to this match with
ODO ot his clerks, and when tho young
lady received a tempting proposal from
? wealthy suitor, the paternal influenae
soon effected''a murringo, despite the
former engagement. In lesa than three
" mop the, her husband was killed by a
Kick from a horse. ' Rdbbrt 'xta? a second
tlmwthen Tfanitor, bntdelayed tho im?
portent question nntil fifteen -months
bad elapsed, when, io' his horror, she
informed him that Bhe waa engaged. In
three months thereafter, she was mar?
ried. Two years elapsed, whon the mar?
ried oouple removed to Syracuse, N. Y.,
where, among the victims of theoholera,
when the pestilence swept that oity, was
tho second. Robert again sought her
baud, and when a year had elapsed, lo!
he reooived an invitation to her wedding.
Her late husband's business was found
in snob a state, that, to avoid immense
losses, Bhe married the surviving part?
ner. Shortly utter, she removed with
her third husband to Detroit, Michigan.
A few years elapsed, when herself und
husband wero on a steamer that was
wrecked near Buffalo. The husband
perished, and the wifo escaped solely
through tho efforts of a friend on board,
ll i H gallantry inspired such sentimuuts
iu her breast that she married her bravo
preserver a fow months niter her third
widowhood. The happy pair removed
to Pittsburg, where her husband was en?
gaged in mercantile business. Thither
Robert, still cherishing his first Iovo,
followed them. Ouo day as ho was pass?
ing the husbund's store he saw a terrible
commotion. Bushing in, ho beheld tho
mangled corpse of that gentleman on
tho floor. A tierce of rice, in being
hoisted to an upper story, had fallen
through the traps, killing him instantly.
Anxiously Bobert inqutted if any uno
had boen sent to inform bis wife, and
was told that the book-keeper had just
goue. Robert Started for Allegheny
Oity, whore the deceased had resided, at
tho top of his Bpeed. Tho book keeper
was just ahead of him, and from past
experience,;' knowing the virtue of
prompt action, and apprehending that
the cleric had designs on the widow, hu
ran for dour lifo, Bide by side. The race
continued nntil they reached Haud
Street Bridge, when the clerk was
obliged to stop to pay the tolls, while
Robert, a commuter, passed over with?
out stopping. Reaching the house of
the widow first, Robert told the heart?
rending news, and in tho same breath
made a proposal of marriage. He was
aooepted. Trne to her promise, after a
year of mourning shu became bis wife.
As all ber husbands had died wealthy,
Bobert was comfortably fixed aftor all.
This ease is a remarkable example of
what pluck and perseverance will do for
a man, while at the same time it
touches a lesson on tho danger of delay.
THE WOMAN Wno SHOT TWO MEN IN
A STREET GAB.-More facts coming to
light concerning the Mrs. McCarty, alias
Dr. Emma Burleigh, alias Mrs. Sey?
mour, who shot at Thompson in a Utica,
N. Y., street car, and killed his compa?
nion Hall, show that her maiden name
was Josephine A. Fagan. Tue Albany
Argua says tbat in 18C3 "she was en?
gaged in smuggling quinine through our
hues over to tho rebels. The general in
command of one of the divisions on the
extreme outer line of the United States
forces, (and who is at present in this
city,) arrested her there several times as
a rebol spy, finding quinine on her per?
son eaoh time. She was dressed in
men's clothes, and was known ns
'Johnny McCarty,' the blookado runner.
On eaoh occasion, tho general in oom
mund received a peremptory order from
tho then Secretary of War, directing
her immediate discharge. Tho 'power
behind tbe throne' which followed the
woman, und always interposed its pro?
tecting hand, was never known to those
in command, and over afterwards she
was loft to go and come through the

opinion that they develop their' legs al
the expense of then-arms, that the mus?

and their powers of abstaining from food
while traveling is wonderful, as it is not

new moon with respectful words, and
believe in a great and good spirit, who,
according to tradition, created the In?
dians and animals, and dispersed thom
from "God's hill;" but they have no

the first of a Rories of laws that will be

standing the many competing fertilizers
that have since been brougbt into ase,

& Howell, of Charleston, gentlemen well
