Th? State Fair.
The fourth anneal fair of the Agricul?
tural and Mechanical Society of Sooth
Carolina will soon be held in our city.
It is a great levor of progress ia the ma?
terial and industrial develop mont of our
Stato; affords an opportunity for the
happy, social commingling of oar active,
worthy citizens from all seotions; is a
sonrce of large revenue to the merchants
and business men of our city, and as
such, deserving of the hearty support of
the press, whose only legitimate sphere
of duty is to guard and advauoe the
public interests. The indications aro
that the approaching fair will surpass
any of its predecessors, in the number
of attendants and tho variety, value and
attraction of the articles exhibited. The
premium list has been largely entended
und more correotly systematized, and
every necessary step taken to make tho
fair a success.
As we havo before remarked, the fair
is, aside from its general importance to
the State, of immonso advautago to the
oity of Columbia. By means of it,
thousands upon thousands of dollars are
brought into our city every year, and
makes a marked impression for good
upon every brauoh of businoes. It is
the duty, as it is the iuterest, of the citi?
zens of Columbia and our city authori?
ties to do overtiring in their power to
make tho fair a permanent and flourish?
ing institution. We are sorry to seo
from reoent resolutions adopted by the
Oity Council, that it is proposed to insti?
tute, or to push forward legal proceed?
ings already instituted against the Agri?
cultural and Mechanical Society, to test
the titles to the Fair Grounds, now
claimed and held by the society or by
trustees to their use. Into the merits of
tho case we have not fully inquired; nor
would it be proper for us. peahaps, to
oomment npon it, even if we were more
fully posted. We do hope, however,
that the matter will be arranged in some
way, so os not to jeopardize the large
interests which the people of Columbia,
especially, have at stake in keeping our
annual Stato Fair held here.
A VKBT. G UH AT DIFFERENCE.-The Oo
tober elections in 1868 were fairly indi?
cative of the then forthcoming election
of Gen. Grant. But there was a very
different state of affairs then from that
which now exists. In three States then
-Missouri, Tenuesaee and West Vir?
ginia-the white population was largely
disfranchised. The negroes and carpet?
baggers were almost the only voters, and
Missouri was made to give Grant 25,000
majority, Tennessee 30,000 majority,
and West Virginia nearly 9,000 majority.
All of these States, whoso aggregate
electoral vote is thirty-two, are now cer?
tain for Greeley by immense majorities.
Missouri will give him 50,000, Tennessee
60,000, and Weat Virginia 15,000. Again,
there were three Southern States in 1868
which were not permitted to vote at all
Virginia, Texas and Mississippi. Gree?
ley will sweep the first two like wild-fire,
and bas an equal ohanoe with Grant in
the third. This is an additional differ?
ence of twenty-seven electoral votes in
favor of Greeley. Then, again, the fol?
lowing States, which voted for Grant in
1868, aro now more likely to vote for
Greeley: Alabama, Arkansas, Connecti?
cut, New Hampshire, North Carolina
and Florida. Score up forty-one more,
or a total electoral vote of 100, which
Seymour did not got ia 1868, and which
Greeley is likely to get in 18T2. Tho re?
sult of the October elections this year is,
therefore, no absolute test of the result
in November. Tho circumstances are
different, and the consequences will bc

[Neto Fork Herald, 2Ut.
A Pollab. Lady Knoatcd,
At a gathering of Poles in the little
village of Kernst, on the Soot-hern Nie?
men, on the 29th of July last, when all
thought themselves seoure from the in?
trusion of any of the numerous spies
who keep the BuBsian officialB informed
of the malcontents among them, Alex?
andrina Kossowitz, a young lady, wnoBe
father, the younger son of a formerly
noble Polish family, was killed in the
recorjt troubles in Warsaw, expressed
her sympathy with the unfortunates
whom Russian severity had murdered or
sent into exile.
The meeting was a purely social one,
and none dreamed that anything said
there would reach the ears of spies, for
all present were known to be Poles, and
firm haters of the harsh rule under
which they then lived. Still, aa the
young girl, in her passionate remem?
brance of a father's love, deplored his
death, expressed her sympathy with re?
bellion and ber detestation of her op?
pressors, she was cautioned lest her loud
tone should enable people at the window
to hear her. With a hasty glance, as
though to read in the faces of those
about her who should betray her, the
young lady ceased her execrations and
relapsed into silenee. When 10 o'clock
arrived, the latest boor of Polish gather?
ings, the company separated, and Alex?
andrina Kossowitz, accompanied by her
affianced, Julian Temeusky, went to ber
If, in passing from the house of the
gathering, she had been a mero observ?
?t, Alexandrina would have seen the
maliciously triumphant glances cast after
ber by Catherina MerdofT, a woman
about thirty-five years, a Pole by birth,
and a sympathizer with her own un?
happy countrywomen whenever her own
passion was not concerned, and from
subs?quent proceedings it Booms that in
.bis caso she had been superseded in the
iffections of the young Dr. Temeusky
Jy the more beautiful and younger Alex?
On the following day, shortly after
rising, Alexandrina was Beizcd in her own
lome, a short distance from Kernst, by
?wo Cossacks of the guard at tho garri?
son, and taken before the petty judge.
The young lady of nineteen, hand
lomeand trembling, produoed no feeling
af pity. Having at first denied the ac?
cusation, she was confronted with Cathe?
rine Merdoff, and then acknowledged her
jffenoo. In passing sentence, the potty
udge said her seditious utterances might
lave warranted him in sending her be?
fore a higher tribunal, where the penalty
ifould be death; but in view of her
routh and contrition, he would merely
jrder her to receive thirty-five lashes of
-ho knout. Almost benumbed with
ibame and terror, the girl was led away
;o be prepared for punishment, for in
Russia all eenteuces, save that of death,
ire oarried out immediately after they
lave been pronounced.
Word having been sent to the officer
commanding the troops, a guard of 200
men were ordered into the garrison
square, and the executioner of the
troop was called upon to be read; to
surry ont the duties of his office. lu
half an hour after the sentence had been
given, the troops had been formed in a
hollow square, in the centre of which
had been placed a scaffold, standing on
four legs, the top of which waa an in?
clined plane. Beside this stood tho exe?
cutioner, having in his muscular baud
the knout. This weapon oonsists of a
stick or handle two feet long, with a lash
four feet long of sole leather, to the end
af which is attaohed, by a loop, a piece
ot flat raw hide two inches wide and two
feet long. In the hands of an experi?
enced man, tho piece of raw-hide eau be
made to cut like a knife.
As tho executioner stood facing tho
Boafibld, Alexandrina Kossowitz was
brought to him by her guard, and in a
few moments her clothing was removed
to her waist, despite ber almost mute
appeals to be spared tho shame. As she
pleaded she was bent on tho plane, her
hands strapped to the two upper cor?
ners, and her ankles scoured nt the foot
of the structure. One of the execu?
tioner's assistants held ber head, and the
petty judge gave the order for the whip?
ping to commence. Twirling the long
lash in the air, the executiouer stepped
suddenly backward, and with a sharp
crack the thong fell on the baok of the
sobbing girl, cutting a livid streak from
ber right shoulder to her waist. A ter?
rible tremor passed over ber, and a
quiok, low ory escaped her lips; but it
was tho only sound she utterod, aud
were it not for the blood, which soon
com to eneed to flow, it might have seemed
that tho whipping was being done on
the naked back of a corpse. When the
last lash had beon given, the young lady
was unfastened, and with her clothing
rudely thrown over her, she was taken to
prison, after thanking the judge for his
meroy, according to the necessary
formula, she was delivered over to her
Five days afterward the Gazette, of
Wilna, contained this announcement:

A correspondent of the Savannah
News, writing from Monticello, Florida,
states that a growing disposition ie ex?
pressed in that section of tho State to
annex West Florida to Alabama, tack
Middle Florida on to Georgia, and to
allow East Florida to constitute the
State. This indicates tho restiveness
and dissatisfaction of the people in a
strong and foroible light.
SEEKING TO AVBNOB HIS FATHER'S
DEATH.-Tbe California papers say that
a Bon of Crittenden, whom Mra. Fair
killed, and for whose murder she has just
been acquitted, is dogging her foot steps
md threatening to kill ber.
TUB FAIU OF THE CAROLINAS-OPEN?
ING DAT.-The fair opened Tuesday,
with very favorable auspices. The day,
though cloudy, was pleasant. Quite a
number of persons were in attendance
for the first day. The exhibition of arti?
cles, both uf home and foreign manufac?
ture, waa quito lurge.
The art gallery occupies the seoond
story. Thia department deserves a muoh
more elaborate dosoription than we can
mako at this time; however, we will call
especial attention to the very handsome
portraits of "Our Beloved Chieftain,"
Oen. lt. E. Lee, painted by Mr. Albert
Querry, of South Carolina. The pic?
tures aro full-length oil paintings, repre?
senting the "grand old hero," both iu
citizen's and military dress. The pic?
tures are pronounced by his son, (Gen.
W. H. F. Leo,) and by others who knew
him well during and ufter the war, to be
admirable likenesses. As also "A Tri?
bute" to "Stonewull" Jackson, a shell
mouument of exquisite design and work?
manship, (it ie the work of Mrs. E. T.
Atwood, of St. Louis,) ouclosed in a
largo glass stand, whioh also contains the
scarf worn by Gen. Jackson, made from
Bilk and cotton grown at the South; also

The entrios in tho live stock lino uro
not as full as they might or should have
been. Quito a number of horses uro on
exhibition, both as racers and draft
horseB, some of them very lino. In this
department South Carolina decidedly
takes the lead, so far.
TUB RACES.-Judges-Capt. J. Kirk?
land, J. L. Gibson and C. H. Pettingiii.
At half past 2 the judges took their
stations on the stand, audthecrowd con?
gregated in tho grand ??tami and around
the course. The horses entered for to?
day's races, best three in Qve, were bay

FIRST HEAT.-After considerable soor
ing the hornea had a good send off,
Charlie Logan ahead. At tho half mile
pole Logan waB two lengths ahead-time
1.27-keeping this position until within
100 yards of the stand, when Top closed
up on him and passed the stand two
lengths ahead; time 2.58.
SECOND HEAT.-Top took and kept the
lead, passing the half mile pole two
lengths ahead-time 1.31-and won the
heat in 3.02>?.
THIRD HEAT.-Logan in the lead bnt
Top closing up passed him at the half
mile pole one length, and kept iu the
lead, winning the race in 3.05.
The first prize of $150 was awarded to
Top, the second of $50 to Logan.
The New York Herald, after giving an
acconnt of the climes of twenty-two
men, who are now in the Tombs, await?
ing their trial for murder, Hayn:
Tho two principal figures, however,
among this crowd of men charged with
murder, are Foster and Stokes. Foster's
last hope now lies in the Unart of Ap?
peals, before which tribunal he will pro?
bably be taken in November next. Ho
is hopeful for his life, and shows no
signs of fear that ho will be adjudged a
real murderer. Stokes bears his posi?
tion much less fretfully now than ho used
to bear it. His great confidence in an
acquittal by a jury having been de?
stroyed, he bogan to recognize with bet?
ter sens? tho perilous position in which
bu was placed, and he has now become
tolerably reconciled to the tortures and
privations of prison existence. His
health is not failing, and he, too, is hope?
ful. In fact, the reporter was informed
that there was not a poor wretch in tho
Tombs from whose sinful breast Heaven
has yet taken the poor consolation of a
little hope for the future.
TnrjTH ABOUT HORACE GREELEY.-Mr.
Groeley's personal participation in the
campaign has been to his signal credit.
During 200 speeohes, short and long,
and, for tho most part, sudden and
impromptu, he uttered no UUW?BO word.
On tho other hand, these railway and
balcony utterances demonstrated to the
American people their author's uncom?
mon nobility of mind and heart. Mr.
Greeley, by his brief candidacy, has
made a great intellectual and moral im?
pression. Thia exhibition of magnifi?
cent common sense in tho candidate
shows what a rare and admirable be?
havior we would get from him in the
Presidential chair. "Whatever happens
in November," said Mr. Greeley to a few
friends the other day, "I hope it will bo
enid of me that I have acted my part and
done my duty well." We behove that
this tribute will be universal and sponta?
neous throughout the ranks of the
Liberal Republican and Democratic
parties. From the beginning of the
canvass until now, nigh its close, Mr.
Greeley has grown steadily in the re?
spect of his opponents and the esteem
of his friends.-Ooldea Age.
THE FAT HOO.-One of the greatest
curiosities on exhibition at the Fair
Grounds is the fat hog, whioh is exhibit?
ed near the industrial hall. It is over
nine feet long and weighs more than
1,200 pounds. It was raised in Abbe?
ville, South Garolina, and is well worth

A BRESTS UNDER THE KU KLUX LAW.
Enraged at the roso.lt of the recent elec?
tion in this State, Grunt aoems to have
put Georgia nnder the ban, and bas in?
structed his myrmidons to commence the
work of hounding down and incarcerat?
ing her citizens. This warfaro was in?
augurated night before last, by a raid
upon the people of Wilkinson County.
From a gentleman who carno ia yester?
day on the Central Railroad, we obtained
the particulars of the affair.
Oa Friday night, tho train from Macon
brought down a strong detachment of
soldiers, detailed for duty from the At?
lanta garrison. The party was accompa?
nied by a number of colored guides. At
Station No. 1(5, which is near Irwiatoo,
the County site of Wilkinson, a squad of
the soldiers and three of the nogro
guides left tho cars and sallied into tho
country. At Station No. 15, the remain?
der of tho soldiers and two negro guides
disembarked. At tho dead of night,
these troops marched from house to
house, arresting citizens, dragging them
from their beds and carrying them away
from their families. During tho night,
they arrested ton citizoos-Dr. T. A.
Simmons, H. E. Hyman, R. G. Hyman,
W. C. D. Carwilo, George Gilbert, Eli
Peacock, Wm. Dickson, Jethro Vallan
diugham, Charles Peacock and Milton
Liudsny. The prisoners wero placed on
tho train yesterday, and taken to Savan?
nah under guard. Tho charges against
the parties are not definitely known. It
is supposed that three of tho gentlemen
aro accused of hoing implicated in tho
killing of Deason, tho Sheriff of the
County, which occurred more than a
year ago. Tho others, it is believed, are
charged with hiving mutilated some
colored men.-Augusta Chronicle.
THE ATLANTA DUEL.-Lute last oven
iug Mr. J. H. Townsend was in a very
uncertain condition. His attendants are
scarcely justified in saying that he is im?
proving. He expectorated blood yester?
day, and this fact was considered by
s imo as significant that his lungs had
been uffeotod by tho gun-shots. There
were, however, no very serious appre?
hensions that ho would not recover. His
arm, which was fearfully mutilated by
tho gnu-shot, is also in an uncortnin con?
dition. His physicians and surgeons,
however, still entertain hope that they
may save it.
Mr. Force has not yet made his ap?
pearance, though it is generally conceded
that he is in tho city, as it is reported
that he was seen in the city on Sunday
FIRE.-The flouring, grist and saw
mills und carding machine, belonging to
Leroy Me Arthur, situated at the "Trough
Shoals," on Pacolot River, were entirely
destroyed by tire, on Monday night, tho
11th instant. The fire originated, it is
supposed, from fire dropped while saw?
ing at night. The loss is about 80.000.
Mr. McArthur, the owner of tho proper?
ty, had erected these milla and otherwise
improved the property, at a considerable
'expense, and we regret exceedingly that
ho has met with such a misfortune.
PERSONAL.-George C. Perrin, son of
our esteemed townsman, the Hon. T. C.
Perrin, left tills place on Monday, to
take the position of Civil Engineer on
the Southern Pacific Railroad, at Mar?
shall, Texas. Mr. Perrin is fully quali?
fied for tho position he is to occupy,
having perfected himself ia his profes?
sion by two years of study ia the Wash?
ington and Line University.
THE COTTON STATES FAIR.-Tuesday
nan tho day appointed for the opening
of the third annual exhibition of tho
Cotton States Mechanics' and Agricultu?
ral Fair Association, at Augusta. The
gates of the grounds opened at half-past
8 o'clook, but owing to the weather, and
the fact that it was generally regarded as
"opening day," tho crowd during the
morning was not very large, and tho visi?
tors confined their attention principally
to the floral and industrial hull.
JUSTICE DOUOHERTT DEAD.-A private
despatch received in Atlanta announces
tho death, in New York, of Mr. Wm.

among his numerous friends and ac?
The Macon Telegraph reports that on
Friday two negro men had an alterca?
tion at a shanty near Mrs. McCall's,
three miles out on the Macon and Au?

stick of wood, whioh both were trying
to get possession of, when one of thom
drew bis pistol and shot the other dead.

plaster work deceives nobody. Thore is
but one article known which will restore
a blemished complexion or or?ate exter?
nal brilliancy and bloom where they
have never heretofore existed, and that
article is HAOAN'B MAGNOLIA BALM. It
performs this toilet mirado by infusing
vitality into the skin. The floral and
herbal juices of whioh it is composed
greatly stimulate the circulation in the
minute blood vrsaels, and brace tho net?
work of nerves throogh which they pass.
Thus quickened and strengthened, the
external oovering soon acquires a fresh
and healthful huo, and every traoo of
sallowness disappears. The palest cheeks
derive from the beautifying baptism of
this delightful cosmetio a warmer hue,

lustre, whioh the charlatans, who pro?
fess to make ladies "beautiful forever"
with their poisonous comeut, can never

ARTISTIC.-We had tho pleasure, on
yesterday afternoon, of examining a pen
oil drawing, the production of Miss Belle
Arther's fucilo hand, representing the
buBt of a child whose hands are olasping
branches of luscious fruit. We were
surprised at the artistic nkill which this
finished picture displayed. Our surprise
and admiration were exchanged for
amazement when informed that its beau?
tiful delineations were the handiwork of
one jost in her teens, who had been
under the gui Janeo of a tutor but six
weeks. Wo cannot too highly eulogize
this graceful sketch of the child artist,
whose talent recalls the rare skill of her
distinguished father, the Hon. E. 3.
Arthur-the man without a superior in
toacbing with tho liveliest vitality every
object ' that attraoted his fancy. This
work is the perfection af pencil drawing;
its outlines are as graceful as the nature
of Ibo sketch would permit; and we be
speak for the young miss triumphs that
will carve her name high in the niche of
fame. The drawing can be seen for a
few days at the store of R. L. Bryan, Esq.
