The Game Law.?At the last session
of the Legislature the law for the pro
tection of game birds was amended so
that it is illegal to kill partridges,
doves.&.c, previous to the ist day <?!'
Xovemlier. For the information of all
concerned section l.?'.M of the statutes I
-elating to game birds is herewith
printed : 'it shall not be lawful for
any person in. *his state, between the
1st day of April ami'the 1st day of No
vember, in any year hereafter, to catch,
kill or injure, or to pursue with such
intent, or to sell or expose for sale, any
wild turkey, partridge, dove, woodcock
or pheasant, and any person found

than ten dollars, or l?e imprisoned not
less than ten days, which line, if impos

An [mportamt Fact.?The E?ge
ileld Monitor says : When the chronic
grumbler tells you that "taxes are as
high as they were antler Radical rule."
just remind him that iu addition to
the taxes paid then a State def t was
being saddled upon us at the rate of
hundreds of thousands of dollars yearly.
This very important fact is overlooked
by the afori said chronic grumbler.
Another point : This immense sum of
debt money was brought into the State
spent freely, making what some people
now look back to and remember as
?lush times, without once considering
tin- cost Lothe State. Suppose those
flush times, from the same cause, had
continued up to this day, what would
be the financial condition of South
Carolina? The present tax would not
be sufficient to pav one-half the interest
or the. State debt. All these things
should he considered in comparing the
present with the. past, the Democratic
with Republican administrations.

General Longstreet's account of Lee's
Invasion of Maryland. Asa war issue
the October Bivouac is probable the
best issue of the magazine. But, aside
from these war papers, the magazine
has much to interest the general rea
der. Bono Barcalde is a character
sketch of unusual merit; Colonel
Nicholas Smith has a bright paper, en
titled, My First Conquest; Maurice

his most charming style; G. C. Conner
has a very timely paper on Mex: ;o. and

well-known critic, George Saintsbury,

the "Capital of the United States" will
be read with interest. Other leading
papers are Alex. II. Japp's "Some Un

Kanke, with reminiscences of Berlin,
from 1S84 to 18SG. Vernon Lee, under
the head of "Pcrigot," contributes in

IVhut Was Done h? the General .Sessions

ness done in Court of General Sessions
since nur last issue :
The jury rendered a verdict of guilty
against Paul Smith for attempting a
criminal assault. The prisoner was
sentenced to one year in the Penitenti
j The only ease tried Wednesday was
I against David Syl'ret, a young white
I man, charged with libel. The libellous
I instrument complained of was a letter
i written by the defendant, and address
| ed and delivered to a cousin of the de
fendant, a young man named M. C. De>
witt, in which Dewitt was accused of
stealing crossties. Gen. Izlar, who de
fended the accused, contended that he
could not be convicted of libel where
the libellous instrument was shown to
have been delivered sealed to the prose
cutor, and that there had been no pub
lication of it except by the prosecutor
himself, who, it was proved, had shown
it to his wife. He further contended
that, in order to convict under this
proof, the indictment should have
charged that the letter had been written
with the intention of provoking a
breach of the peace instead of charging
injury to general reputation. Judge
Kershaw ruled that as the proof show
ed that the prosecutor could not read
or write, and had showed the letter to
his wife solely for the purpose of ac
quiring a knowledge of the contents of
the letter, such action on his part was
not such a personal publication as
would deprive him from receiving the
redress accorded by the law. lie held
that under the circumstances the in
dictment was good, and the alleged
libellous writing could go before the
jury. The jury found the accused
guilty and a sentence of three months
:n the county jail or fifty dollars' line
was imposed. Gen. Izlar excepted to
the Judge's ruling and gave notice of
In. the Court of Ceneral Sessions
Thursday Cherry Butler, colored, was
tried for burglary and larceny, viz :
breaking into the barn" of Mr.* A. K.
Tabor, near Fort Motte, and stealing
one thousand pounds of cotton. Mr.
M. I. Drowning represented the accused.
Verdict, guilty. Sentence, two years
in the Penitentiary.
The next case was against Caleb
Jenkins, colored, charged with the.mur
der of Jack Gordon, colored,on the loth
of the present month. The testimony
for the State was given by witnesses
very obviously partial to the prisoner,
and at the close of the State's ease
there was really hardly enough to base
a verdict ol guilty upon, but the
prisoner went on the stand and testifi
ed in his own behalf, and as is frequent
ly the case made matters very much
worse for himself. The history of the
transaction was that the deceased went
to his bouse about dark very drunk;that
he beat his wife and ran hermit of bis
house; that his wife ran to her sister's
house for protection; that the prisoner,
Jenkins, who was Cordon's brother-in
law, attempted to get him out of the
house where he had pursued his wife;
that Gordon cut him with a knife in
the foot and struck him with a hickory
stick, that .Jenkins then got an axe, ami
the next thing the witnesses knew Gor
i don was lying on the ground with his
skull cloven by the axe. No one saw
the blow indicted, and the prisoner was
very much confused in making his
statement, lie came into Court im
pressed with the one idea, that what
he. wanted to prove was that the kill
ing was in self-defence. lie had evi
dently studied this point very carefully,
but unfortunately he did not seem to
know exactly the true meaning of self
defence. When asked how and why he
struck, the fatal blow, the accused said :
"When de man lick at me wid de stick,
I jes pick up de axe to shun oll de blow
and de axe fall on de man head. All
was done in self-defence. I didn't
mean to hit the man at all. I jes went
to fen off de blow and de axe fall in
