On Wednesday morning last ?vhil e
Miss Sue Jjovcll was walking across
tho green in tho neighborhood of
Mr. Williamson, in company with
another lady, tho notorious Charley
Colter ran up to her and snatched
her pocket book, containing some
seven or eight dollars, from her
hands. Instant alarm was given,
and Colter was pursued, and dragged
from under tho kitchen of Mr.
Wiles, whither he had taken refuge,
and carried before.Trial Justice Girar

await his trial at tho coming court of
sessions. Colter is rather a desperate
thief, and is likely to bo sent back to

On Thursday morning as Miss Jane
Bo/.ard, in company with a friend j
was riding toward Orangoburg on the
old Charleston road, they were slopped
by a colored man, armed with a mus

Bo/.ard "her money or her life." She
olio, red him her pocket-book, (taking
out of it the most of the money, while
in her pocket.) Me refused to take
it, and ordered her to throw it on the
ground, and drive on, she did j,o; and
loft the robber with some three or
four dollars of her money, while she
carried off a considerable amount. A
party of mounted' men, at once left

A huty enters our dry good store,
Steps to a elcik who stands near t lie door,
Asks him to show tier tho latest style,
And she pulls over the goods meanwhile.
Says she; 1 want a dress for my niece,
Will you please show me that under piece?
Oh ! i didii'l see it was a polka spot;
Thai is tot) m ar the one she's got.
That piece with stripes would just suit me,
It's jdsl as pretty as it can he.
lint she wants a better covered ground,
With a suit of vine running all'round.
She don't want toj dark nor yet very light,
Nut a striped piece nor yet very bright.
I think she'll like what you showed nie last;,
I hit do you think the colors are fast?
Cut oil*u bit before I decide.
I'll take home a piece and have it tried.

They're the nicest styles I've seen ibis year,
And you'll secure the trade?no fear.
I've forgot the price?'twas cheap enough,
It's a sort of dark plain stuff:

The other day we chanced to drop
in a certain stovo in this placo where
a colored man who had inbibed pret
ty freely, and who thought himself
very smart, was industriously trying
to persuade the store keeper?who is
an uncompromising Democrat?that
Hampton was a dangerous man. The
admirer ot Hays became so very
earnest, thai he called to his aid sev
eral adjectives, more forcible than
elegant, which induced the proprie
tor of the store to say to him:
? 'U'onve, you must not curse so loud,
Ladies may come in here, and I
don't want any such language in my
"Well, si.-, as regards dat I hub

gregatiou, reposing my opinions
freely; is a part of de character I hah
never 'propriated to myself, and
I beg your pardon if I have labora
ted any thing disgraceful to your
flomenino years. Good evening sir."
The store keeper after sitting for a
mitiute or so in silenco after tho de
parturo of his colored customer,
turned to us and inquired i? we know
what the man had said. AVo an
swered in the negative. "Woll then,"
said he, "we are both in tho same

cars, but 1 don't suppose he meant to
poke game at me."
A rcmarkr.blc trial, involving a
curious question, has just been con
cluded in Bowling Green, Ky. The
code duello, although still occasional ly
resorted to by tome fiery spirits in
the South, is nevertheless fast going
out of use even on Kentucky's "dark
aud bloody ground," and it i.s all the
more extraordinary to find a clergy
man attempting to test its stern pro
visions. It appears that tho licv.
Dr. Stnoot, pastor of the Presbyterian
church, Bowling Green, was charged
with violation of law?to say nothing
of ministerial proprieties?in chal
lenging a man with whom he had
quarreled to fight a duel. This was
the interpretation put by the prosecu
tion on a very fiery letter sent by the
clergyman. The defense claimed
that such was not its meaning. Both
sides argued so Well that tho jury
could not agree, standing seven for
conviction and five for acquittal, and
there the case stands at present,
though it is expected that the presby
tery will next take up the case and
decide whether or not the reverend
gentleman has exceeded the bounds
of the church militant
