WEDNESDAY ROV. 10, 1886.
B. S. DINKINS, Editor.
The Seventh District was redeemed from
Radical misrule by the defeat of Smalls,
(colored) and the election of Gen. Elliott
to Congress. This is an admirable com
mentary on the wise administration of the.
Democratic Party in this State. The col
ered vote largely preponderates in this Dis-.
trict, and Gen EUiott's election is due to i
their desertion from the Republican ranks,
and voting for the candidate of the Party in
A dastardly assault was made upon Capt.
J. M. Owens, of Indiantown, Williamsburg
County, by a negro man on the 4th inst.
The account in the News and Courier of the
-A young negro man named Sentry
Brown attacked Capt. J. M. Owens with a
fence-rail and strnck him two severe blows
on the head making large gashes. Capt.
Owens is over 70 years of age, and is a very
quiet and estimable gentleman. His con
dition is regarded as quite dangerous. La
ter in the day a warrant for Brown's arrest
was issued by Trial Justice J. N. Hammett.
and Brown was arrested under it. Last
night armed negroes gathered and released
Brown from arrest. Before dawn this
morning a party of white men proceeded to
Brown's house and recaptured him. Brown
was taken to the office of Trial Justice Ham
mett under guard. About 12 o'clock to.day
armed a began to gather at Hammetts
office, a considerable demonstrations.
The sheriff went down this afternoon for
the purpose of bringing Brown to jail and
avoiding a collision between the whites and
Brown'was afterwards taken by Sherif
' and lodged in jail.
The eort of the negroes to defy the lav
was uncalled for and unprovoked. And it
is to be hoped that the officials of Williams
burg, aided by - the law abiding citizens,
will speedily apprehend the ringleaders ol
this bold attempt to set at defiance the law
and see that they answer for their crime
before the Courts of the land.

When we endeavored in eaga

print mis-spelt, we were then disposed
readthese mistakes as mere typogra
clerrors. or perhaps the more technical
oversight of our own. From the teno1
"The "Devil's" Reply to Argonaut" it se
that this was not the case. While we

the "devil" including his reply to Argo
