Mr. L\ T. K. Sliloak, Chairman

commission from Governor Hampton.
Fearing that he would not be . acting
legally in the discbarge of his dutic

directly after his election to Hampton
and thus gave in his adhesion to the
People's government. "While the

A HELLED M"/./.Mlli?
A few weeks since a strange sight
was presented to a furnier living in the
vicinity of Branchville in this wise :
A dead pig lay in a field close by his
house w hose scent attracted a very
large buzzard. A little girl in pass
ing had her attention drawn to the
spot where the pig was by the ringing
of a bell. Upon examination she dis
covered lliat the bell was hung to the
bird's neck. Hie repaired at once to
the house and informed her father of
the fact, who immediately went in
quest of the novel spectacle. To his
surprise he found what his daughter
l.ad said to be true. The buzzard was
belled, and when frightened flew ofr
with the bell ringing in the air. The
question is, bow did it get swung to
the buzzard's neck?

Yesterday the case of the St a te vs.
Elijah Myers, indicted for iiitimmidu
ton nt the last general election was
tried. 1 be prosecutor was named
Vaiinker, (colored,) who swore on the
Hand that the defend ant intimidated
and threatened him that if bo voted
for Hampton bo with a number of
oilier colored men, would give him
three hundred lashes. The prosccu
tor staled that he wauled to voto fur
Hampton because he believed his
election would bring about a better
government, nnd that ho was proven
ted from voting as he desired by said
threats and intimidation.
The Judge charged the jury to the
eflcctthnt the State should make
out more than meto threats, and inti
mated prctly strongly that the jury
should tiud tho intimidtttor not
guilty. And such a verdict was rcu
dered! Score one for Chamberlain.
During the week we pnid a hasty
visit to this prosperous Town. The
people down there arc distinguished
for their sociability and intelligence.
Like ever other place just now, poli
tics is the uppermost subject of dis j
cussion. Tilden pud Hcndricks, and
Hampton and Simpson, have warm
und enthusiastic admirers and sup
porters at Brauchville. Every white
man in that portion of our County
has already paid in his contrioution
to Judge Clover, Governor Hamp
Ion's agent. Locally the approach
ing Town election is creating a great
deal of interest. There will probably
be two tickets nominated, but the one
headed by the Hon. W. II. Rcedish
will be more then likely to win. Air.
Pecd'sh although a staunch and
unswerving supporter ot Governor
Hampton, still retains tho confidence
and respect of the colored pen pie
around him, and will perhaps receive
their solid vote for re-election as
Intcndeut, while the majority of the
whites arc sure to vote in the same
direcli n. Air. Kccdish has made r.
good Inloudent for years now, ha?
done much for the improvement of
Uranchviile, and by his late course in
the stir pport of Governor Hampton, he
endeared him-clf to the people < f the
State, and reflected special credit up
on his immediate constituents. The
election will come off on Tuesday

On Saturday nig .u last, at an early
hour, the Post O/Kcc was discovered
to be on lire. The alarm was given
and soon our gallant Firemen were at
their [daces, and commenced at ouce
to showver two streams upon the fire,
which spread with great rapidity and
fury over the building. The Firc
J men worked hard, and succeeded in
extinguishing the flames belore the
; building was entirely consumed.
During the progress of the Area col
orid man named Kdward Glover was
en ugh' with the money drawer of the
Post Of lice, and was arrested, but was
subsequently released. Isaac Whit
more met a harder fate. He was
sent to Jail, and upon examination
before V. S. Commissioner C. S. Hull,
on Wednesday last, divulged enough
to wairant Air. Pull in holding him
for trial be.ore the U. S. Court.
Kdward Glover t ud Harry Robert
son testified separately against Whit
more, and by their conflicting testi
mony convinced, the Commissioner
that they also had had a hand in the
robbery of the Post Oflicc drawer.
He thereupon issued his warrants for
their arrest, and sent them along with
Whitnioro to Columbia in charge of
a special U. S. States Marshal. The J
proof against them is pretty plain and |
it is probable 'hat Ornngeburg will
thus be relieved of three notorious
nuisances lor some years to come.
After Whitnioro found that ho was
safely in the clutches of the law he
intimated that he won hi at some
future lime make a clean breast of
the whole affair.
The fire caught in the loom behind
the Post Oflicc, and was undoubtedly
the work of incendiaries ? perhaps x>f
the same parties who robbed the
The damage done leaves the Post,
Oflicc building an unsightly ruin,
which was the property ol Judge
Andrews. The Post Oi'lice scales and
some money wcrcstolen, while stamps,
letters, pupcrs, tfcc, suffered terribly
from the combined agencies of water
and fire. Mr Webster's private stock
of goods were nearly all damaged,
and was not insured.
Judge Andrews' store, close by the
Post Oflicc, was saved, but the goods
were all taken out in anticipation of
its burning also. Over one-third of
the Judge's sto^k was stolen, upon
which he had a small insuraucc.
Fires hnvo been frequent here, and
we are glad that for once the parties,
who arc perhaps responsible for this
last one, havo found themselves in
the toils of the law. Commissioner
Bull deserves credit for his firm and
prompt conduct in the matter.
