Notes from New Zion.
NEw ZIoN, March 10.-After a3 ab
sence of som~e time on account of not
being convenient to a post-office, I
will now fall in and try to keep your
readers posted with the happenings
of New Zion, though news is a scarce
article at present~. - I hope, however,
as spring advances, there will be some
brighter times with us. We are hav
ing some very pretty weather now,
and our farmers are making use of it,
by getting in some good work in the
way of preparing cotton lands. The
Ifamiliar sound of gee and haw are
heard on every side. Oats that were
sown in the fall are looking fine, and
there are good stands where they
were sown in February. The gener
al outlook bids fair for a fine harvest
should it get no backset.
the Clarendon circuit was held at the
New Zion Methodist Church last Sat
urdav. Rev. J. S. Beasley preached
an able and instructive sermon to a
very large and appreciative congre
gation in the morning. In the after
noon t' :c nference convened with
Rev. Mr. Ialey in the chair, and W.
H. Floyd, secretary, and transacted
the usual business. Rev. Mr. Beasley
preached again on Sunday morning
at 11 o'clock, and at the conclusion
of the sermon administered the sacra
ment of the Lord's supper.
Miss Sue Mouzon, of Williamsburg,
is visiting friends in this section.
Miss Eddie Wheeler, a charming
young lady of this place, has return
ed, to the delightpf her many friends,
from a visit to friends in Darlington.
SiMmToX, M a r c h 12.-Cold
weather and floods of rain are mate
rially harrassir~g the farmers, and re
tarding all field work. It feels to-day
like mid winter, and instead of plant
ing corn, as the advanced season
might warrant, they are trying to pre
pare their lands as best they can, turn
ing the plow in middle of the fields,
the bottoms being too wet and boggy
to run through. It is bad enough on
our highlands; sorry for those sec
tions less fortunate.
In this connection I anxiously ask,
what has become of Foreston ? Not
entirely submerged I hope. One of
our wide awake citizens, in going
down to Charleston, the other day,
was on the lookout f->r that lively little
village among the p-p-ponds, and
when he got to Grcelyville, he was
told that he had passed it. Now
what has our good old friend of the
many finny abases to say. We would
suggest that a meeting of the muni
cipal functionaries be called, and an
appropriation voted for a conspicuous
sign-board, marking the place where
it used to be.
We don't talk much about railroads
now, Mr. Editor; things are getting
monotonously certain on that point.
We hear that the Eutaw will begin
operations on this (Summertor) end
next Thursday, 15th. We also hear
that one of the Manning merchant
princes has offered ten or twenty
thousand dollars to have a short line
built from here to Manning. Enter
prising, is it not ? We tried a long
time to get. a public highway to the
county seat, but failed, and we are
truly glad to see such a demonstration
of public spirit. Irasmuch as we are
not yet ready to have the court-house
moved here, it will be exceedingly con
venient for our citizens hereabouts to
have a railroad to attend court. But
someone has unkindly suggested that
the branch road is to be built in order
to hold on to the trade of this section.
If that is so I will just say that I am
reminded of a little piece of civil en
gineering attempted by one of my
good friends in this neighborhood.
He had a pond that he was anxious
to drain into a neighboring creek.
But when his ditch was completed,
the water, instead of flowing from
the pond into the creek, would persist
in running from the creek to the pond.
See ? And as Manning is the highest
place in. this section, I am inclined to
think that the~ lawv of gravity wvould
assert itself, and things would natur
ally flow in tLis dicetion. So let it
come. We 'will try to vie with Sumn
ter for the Manning trade.
The City of the Sand Hills.
FULrox, March 12.--Why -hasn't
some other sad eyed genius filled the
position of TL'as correspondent dur
ing my silence ? I don't want a mon
opoly in the correspondence from
this place, by any means, nor do I
wish to quench the glowing fire of
eloquence that burns within the breast
of any one, but conjure them to pro
mulgatte the thunder of their journa
listic aflatus through the columns of
the TnIms. Let not the "City of the
Sand Hills's" most sententious critic
be the bete noir to deter you frotn an
exhaustive elucidation of your emo
ions. "If he don't write up the news
for the paper he ought to make way
for some one else," you say ? My re
cusancy has given the Editor ample
excuse to incontinently fire me if he
sees it,. or I'll cheerfully abdicate in
any one's favor. Puff any one you
please, bretheren,-yourself if you
like. The voluptuous writer doesn't
"Pff'-except when he insinuates
a weed out of a confiding friend.
Pardon gentle reader, this my first
effort to pun in '88, and I shall not
again essay the facetious.
Sometimes a man is looking for a
"puff," and don't get it ; theu he says
the paper is going down hill, and he
would stop it if he didn't have to pay
his bill first. People expecting Ar
gonaut to fritter away his young life
in writing apocryphal compiments
about them, will anxiously watch
throgh the gloaming 'till a late hour,
but they will watch in vain.
The railroad !-now, perhaps, the
diapason of some people's heairts is
touched, and will win me their ap
proving smiles. Yes, the railroad is
here,-a real, out-and-out, genuine,
broad gage road graded, embanked,
and ready for the track. Like the
horrible memory of a terrible dream,
your readers will recall how, about a
'year ago, I recounted, in epic prose,
the honor and glory and dominion
'forever of this grand enterprise, there
fore I will not now paraphrase my
eif-'wcre of the irredeemable
hitherto. Suffice ht say that Centre
ville and Fuiton (especially the for
mer) are elated. Every one consid
ered their section absolutely the sine
qua non for the depot. The com
pany have wisely decided u1pon "Pine
log" rathier "St. James" as the place
for the depot, and, for this purpose,
have purchased forty acres of land
frorg Mrs. E. L. Griffin to be laid
off into gtown lots." What the new
Centreville seems too common-place.
Why not Baptise'it St. James, Cen
treville's patron saint? 'Twould
sound classical as well as sacred. I
could truthfully predict a great
"boom" for the embrio town, but
wont, for my prophecies, like Cassan
dra's are not credited. Dan Ducello
exhibited here on Tuesday night to
an audience of about one hundred.
His exhibition fell as far short of the
advertisement as Dan's personal ap
pearance did of the Appolo like por
trait displayed over his name. The
panorama and pantomime were worth
the admission charged ; but the bal
ance of the performance, atrocious.
The Trxs is quite popular, and its
Editor has warm friends at Fulton.
Mr Dinkins's withdrawal was genuin
ly regretted. He won for himself
golden opinions, and under his able
management the TiEt was raised to
a standard of excellence rarely found
in a county journal. His many
friends will join my wish and predic.
tion that he will attain distinction
and eminence in the profession to
which he has dedicated his brilliant
mind and energies. This isn't f puff,
but a patent, demonstrable truth.
Sensations in Charleston.
CHARLEsTON, March 12.-The young
prostrate mother of the little waif
spoken of in my last letter, lingered
until 9 o'clock Monday morning. The
"lightening before death" beamed in
her face brighter than the sunsbine of
that beautiful day, and when old St.
Michael ehimed out nine "the Healer
bad come" and the weary sufferer had
calmly "passed under the rod" into
the arms of Him who had said. "Come
up higher; I will give you rest." Suf
fering soul! It needed rest. Siren
man had plucked the rose from vir
tue's ruby cheek; and placed a burn
ing blister there ! When the crisis
came, cruel writers heralded her sa
cred name to a curious public, and
thus it was that
* "each new day,
A gash was added to her wound."
And these sympathizing (?) news
seekers who inflicted their blows up
on the innocent living as well as the
unfortunate dead, haa the brazen ef
froniery to precede her name with a
pitying "poor" before penning it.
Not murder ; ,o : but merciless
butchery. I wonder if they will let
her rest now, or satiate their ravenous
appetite on the living innocents who
bear her name? How appropriate,
with a slight change, what Leartes
said at Ophelia's grave.
"A minist'ring angel shall this woniin be,
While thou liest howling.'
The insurance swindle has swelled
to larger proportions than was at first
dreamed of. The companies have
been defrauded of about $25,000, and
there is no estimating the number of
bodies that have been resurrected and
reburied as being men now living.
The elder Bond played this game on
his own son, a mere youth who had
no connection with the transaction.
He then forged his wife's name to a
receipt for $2,000 insurance, and got
the money. There are in jail here
now five prisoners awaiting the result
of the investigations, namely, J. H.
Bond, L. M. Shafer, his son, R. E. L.
Shafer, and two negroes. Eva Red
mond, the wife of a former member
of the Salvation Army, who was at
work with her husband in a cotton
factory at Greenville, is under arrest
at that place and will be brought here
to-miorrowv. She telegraphed that she
is willing to confess all she knows, and
thereby seciure her release, the State
using her as its witness. The detec
tives have ascertained that Eva Red
mond was once a demii monde of
Charleston; that the Bonds put her in
a house to herself in a respectable
part of the city, and used her as be.
ing the wife of a sick husband who'
was said to have been in a room "up
stairs." A body was bought from
the keeper of the Potter's Field one
night and placed in the room where
the sick husband was supposed to
have been. The mian was reported
dead next morning, ladies invited over
to console the bereaved widow, the
funeral preached, and the body bu
ried. The insurance was paid in due
time, and after a division of the booty,
Eva Morris left the gang, went to
Greenville, married Redmond, and
reformed. The physician who would
give the certificates of cause of aeath,
etc., was Dr. James P. Bond; the
clergyman, Dr. Shafer, sonmetimes
"Parson Shafer;" pall bearers, young
R. E. L. Shafcr and others not yet
caught; and the insurance agent,
Thomas H. Bond, who "skipped by
the light o' the moon." I shall keep
this matter before your readers as it
The bust of Hon C. G. Memmin
ger was placed in position at the City
Council chambei last week, and this
morning that great and good South
Carolinian breathed his last. His
history is too familiar with your read
ers, and space is too limited for me to
Iattemp)t a narrative; sufficeth it to say
he "fought a good fight; he kept
the faith" and his memory will die
only with history's page.
The Court of General Sessions has
convened with Jai4ge Pressley on
Ithe bench. The *\ of the State vs.
I , a popular drummer for
the wholesale house of J. C. H. Claus-!
se & Co., charged with larceny, was
tried. The drummer had been sent
ot on a trip, authorized to make
collections. When he returned from
his trip there wa $378 short, be not
having spent a cent of that amount
for the use of the house. He . a ar
Irested, and tried under the statue
Ipassed by the "rag- tag" legidiature of

ting a breach of trust with a fraudu
lent intention shall be held guilty of
larceny." The Judge read the statute
to thejury, told themn that he had
been studying that for twenty years
and was niever able to extract its
meaning, and left it for the jury to

The face of Clarendion's distinguish
ed ex-Senator, Hon. Henry L. Ben
bow, was conspicuous on Broad Street
a few days ago. He spent a day

repute now in the meshes of the law
for some trifling indiscretion.
SEMIT EHT EuK.
Whiskey's Wicked Works.
MR. ED-roI.-One of true convic
tions cannot but feel grateful after
reading in your last week's issue your
editorial on The Whiskey Devil. As
to your personal sentiments, they are
too widely and appreciably known
for us to allude to them. But to the
Manning TIMEs is extended our warm
est congratulations, upon being un
dEr the management of one who will
kund its columns toward the suppress
ing of local vices. We are glad to
see you "give vent to your pent up
thoughts," when they tend to elimi
nate evils, and promote the moral
welfare of the public. We "join you
in the cause," and take this opportun
ity of ventilating our sentiments,
which have long beer struggling and
smouldering under a pressure of pub
lic reconciliation. We agree with
you that the whiskey evil is the worst
of all curses upon man. It is start
ling to the sense of virtue to realize
the many infamous habits that are
being daily practiced in our own
tow I ; the men that are being ruined
and sent down to drunkard's graves,
and the bright young futures that are
being blastel. What a scar up,:n
tie society of our county that Man
ning, its largest town, and that with
less than one thousand inhabitants,
should be defiled by the existence of
two fuli-fledged barrooms, with all
their degrading attachments. How
bad it is, that there should be placed
so near the daily walks of men an en
ticing snare, which when once fallen
into, it is almost impossible for one
to extricate himself ; that there should
be placed so near a man's bands that
which eventually deadens his brain,
uproots his every power of resolution,
weakens his sense of honor, propriety,
and honesty, and makes his appetite
so irresistible, that for its gratiiicatior,
he will pretend going on some legiti
mate errand, while he will go through
some well known gate, or crack where
a board has been ripped off the fence.
Yet, "it makes him feel rich." So it
does, in many ways. Makes him dis
gustingly friendly and polite, so much
so that he will laugh heartily without
a joke, or make him exultingly confi
dent in his own imaginary strength
and importance. It bridges all im
possibilities, and makes him feel as if
he were a lord, while he really is
And what is its influence upon the
youth ? It puts them on the road to
worthlessness and shame. It kills
the vigor of youth, stimulates those
passions which should, in youth, be
curbed and cultivated, makes a lad
distribute his vitality, ambition, and
energy to habits of slovenliness and
wrecklessness, and he realizes that
ere nature has made him a man,
whiskey has made him a wreck. On
ly a few days ago the writer chanced
to pass the door of a barroom iin
which ther-e was music, danczing, and
apparent great mirth ; and who was
to be seen at the door? About a ha!f
dozen boys, under twelve years old,
looking in, perfectly enchanted, just
ready to enter and take part in the
"fun," and thus make the first step
on a road to worldly disgrace and
shame. Then tell us that the ex
istence of whiskey or barrooms, in
any community, is calculated to pro
mote any cause, other than wicked
ness in its vilest form, and we say
that society and public opinion are at
a low ebb. Imagine the poor unfor
tunate when he has imbibed so freely
-of the vile stuff that he has exhausted
his last cent, and every other means
to obtain it, and then hear the won
derfully cliuching preventative, '-He
can't get another dr-op." Or see him
when he has been steeped in its veno
mous influence until he is beastly
drunk, his mirth and money gone,
and his care becomes a burden, then
hear the retaliatory, "Why don't you
carry him home ? What are you
bringing him in my bar- for ?" But, as
said before, that once a man falls in
to its seductive and enveloping influ
ence he is almost irrecoverable, then
what is the remedy ? Let an arm of
sympathy be lent to the poor unfor
tunates, rid ourselves of the now ex
isting evil, frown down upon its pro
moters as long as they shall advocate
its existence, and hope for the day
when honesty, morality, and temper
ance shall reign supreme. Let the
ladies, the young ladies, learn to scorn
its use, and let them have a sense of
propriety so delicate as to be disgust
ed at its toleration on the part of. any
These are some of the truths that
now exist in our own immediate town.
Then, fathers, open your eyes to the
duty which you owe to y-our sons,. as
well as yourselv-es, and your daugh
ters will be cared for by kind and
