Dozier Burgess was arraigned last
Monday before Trial Justice Benbow,
for a preliminary hearing, on a charge

closed in a fight. The trial justice
dismissed the charge of aggravated
assault and battery, but held Burgess
on a charge of assault, of which he
as convicted and sentenced to five
ays in jail or to pay a fine of three
ollars. He paid the fine. Senator'

he was well nigh divested of clothing,
being in a grossly nude state. When
put in the guard house he began
cursing and using very offensive lan
guage. The policeman then shut the
window, the only opening in the dun

to such cruel tratment, but it ought

T'he elder sister, disguising her hand,
wrote a polite note to the two young

men requested to be alloyed thee
quisite pleasure of calling that even

swered the note, and the coming
evening's pleasure was the great to
pic for the balance of the day. The
other ladies of the house were of
course in the secret, and humored the
joke. The two young ladies even
discussed the subject of conversation,
and posted the older ones how long
they should stay in the parlor, and
what- they should talk about. We
will not, however, give them away on
this point. Later in the day other
invitations to call were politely de
clined. Evening came, and with ex
tra attention to their toilets, and with
hearts beating high in anticipati->n of
a pleasant evening, and with music
and singing, they awaited the coming
of the cadets. After a while they
were told it was all a joke, and then

Dinkins Released on Bail.
Application for bail for B. S. Din
kins was made last Saturday, in Col
umbia, before Judge Pressley. B.
PressleyBarron, Esq,appeared for the
defense and Solicitor John S. Wilson
for the State. Dinkins waived the
right to appear in person. The
Judge ordered that Dinkins should
be discharged from custody upon giv
ing a satisfactory bond for $1,500
$500 for the charge of forgery and
$1,000 for that of housebreaking.
Monday afternoon the bond was
properly filed and approved, and Din
kins was turned out of jail. The
bondsmen are Messrs. T. H. Harvin,
J. G. Dinkins, and W. M. Brockinton.
Was the Policeman Negligent?
The Editor of THE. MANIG Trfs
is not accustomed to making rash
statements, or to -writing as facts
things that he cannot sustain. When
last week we stated, with reference
to the duty of a policeman to search
prisoners before putting them in the
guard house, that to put a prisoner
in the guard house before he is
searched "is not the practice in this
place, is against orders, and is gross
criminal neglect," we had as our au
thority for saying so information di
rect from the Intendant of the town.
Charges have been preferred against
at least one of the policemen, and we
presume the town council will at the
proper time make due investigation
and place the blame where it belongs.
Until then it is best that the matter
should rest quiet.
MR. EnrTOR:-In your last week's
issue you speak of the boy Washing
ton Pearson, who attempted suicide
in the guard house, as having an "un
savory character." He was in my
employ at the time of his misfortune,
had been for quite a while, and was a
faithful and obedient servant.
Beyond one or two quarrels he
was in, previous to my hireing him,
I can learn of nothing derogatory to
his general reputation. His character
I find unimpeached. In his precari
ous condition it is surely unfair to
publish what "is said" concerning
him. What "is said to be" the "char
ater," or even reputation, of any of
us might or might not place us in a
very envious attitude, but, Mr. Editor
what "is said to be" might, or might
not, be trute.
In justice to my servant I write
A Lively Fight.
Frank RI. Lively, of Foreston, and
Bob Burris, better known as Black
Snake, of Williamsburg, both colored,
got into a difficulty at Greeleyville
last Thursday afternoon. Black Snake
had an old musket and Lively a razor.
Lively with razor in hand started for
BlackSnake, who retreated to where
his gun was hid and taking it up or
dered Lively to halt. This he ne
glected to do, and- Black Snake gave
him the contents, a load of bird shot,
which entered his left arm just below
the shoulder, making a hole big
enough to put a hen's egg in it.
Lively, as soon as the smoke of battle
cleared away, again started for Black
Snake, who using his old musket as a
club, dealt him a powerful blow across
his head, breaking the skull bone in
several places. Both wounds are se
rious, though Lively does not com
plain of the head wound. The bone
of the arm is shot to pieces, every
shot in the gun having gone into the
arm. It was a line shot for his heart,
and nearly got there, too. The doc
tor thinks amputation necessary, but
the negro will not- consent to it. It
is very doubtful whether he will re
cover." No arrests have yet been
made. Lively is about nineteen
years old, and is a son of Rev. F. W.
Lively. He is married, and the
trouble originate'd in defense of his

The present pension roll shows
1,932 accepted pensioners, with the
possible increase of the list to 2,000.
After deducting the per diem of the
various County Pension Commission
ers, amounting to some $2,450, we
see a pension fund of $47,550 to be
distributed among 1,932 pensioners.
This would give, on the present
pension, $24.60 to the pensioner.
The appropriation will, therefore,
fall $1.95 cents short, per month of
the $3 monthly payment had in view
by the Assembly. At the $3 per
month rate the present pension list of
1,932 pensioners calls for $5,796 per
month, which shows that payments
for the eight months, including Au
gust, will consume $46,368, leaving
only $1,182 to be distributed in Sep
tember to the pensioners, which will
amount to some 61 cents a head.
If it be the intention of the Assem
bly to. make good this shortage in the
amount appropriated to meet the $3
per month contemplated, we see that
there is $11.40 per head still due on
the present pension list, or a deficit
$21,924.80. Should the list reach
2,000, when all applications come in,
this would call for an appropriation
of $72,000, which, including the above
deficit, would involve a pension ap
propriation next year of $93,924.80.
Should our people come through
the year with prosperous crops, the
Assembly may have the heart to grant
this sum; but if we should come out
at the little end of the horn in our
fields, we are afraid that the Assem
bly could not be induced to provide
for old scores.
Yet this $93,000 to a million of
people, amounting to less than nine
and a half cents a year to the inhabi
tant, would manifestly hurt nobody
in the State.
The number of pensioners in the
several counties vary very considera
bly. Spartanburg takes the lead
with 36 male pensioners and 160 fe
male, making in all 196. Greenville
comes next with 29 male and 97 fe
male pensioners-total 126. Ander
son ranks third with 17 male and 106
female, and 123 total pensioners.
The four lowest counties on the list
are: Beaufort with I male pensioner
-total 1; Georgetown, 2 male pen
sioners-total 2; Florence 4 males,
23 females-total 27. Richland 5
males, 27 females-total 32, There
are 3 colored pensioners, 1 each from
Abbeville, Berkeley, and Clarendon
It may be taken for granted, how
ever, that everything is fair, as these
applications have all met, it is said,
rigid examinations. It would yet ap-.
pear somewhat significant that
Charleston, with her large force in
the field during the war, should have
but 69 pensioners on the list, whilst
Spartanburg has 196 and Greenville
as 126. Be this as it may, let us
sot quarrel with the small sum, in any
vent, so worthily given.-Columbia
The Crops in South Carolina.
On the first of June the cotton
~rop in South Carolina stood at 76;!
ut since that time the average has
risen until it has passed by four per
~e.nt. the average of last year.
The average of the corn crop is
~our per cent, above the general aver
e for the Southern States, and is
urpassed only by the States of Texas
ge is above last year, by about three
per cent., an improvement of seven
per cent, since the rains set in.
Of all the crope, howecver, in this
State the percentage of the peach~
crop is far in the advance of all oth
er products, being rated at 109. .
This year must have been a re
iarkable year for peaches, for we no

that there has never been such a
each year in Georgia, as the present
year, both as to the ~size of the crop

Geutierfi Pryor Wats Captured.
The Yews and Courier is, we are
glad to believe, wasting its breath
when iv charges our old fellow citizen
General Rodger A. Pryor with de
sertion during the war.
We have read the whole story with
a desire to be historically correct in
our opinion, and have deliberately
reached the conclusion that the News
and Corier has no case and should
be ruled out of court.
General Wilcox, of the Confeder
ate army, who was on hand when
Pryor was captured, and who invest
igated the matter, declares that the
accusation is "an idle one, without
foundation." Captain Dudley, who
captured Pryor, makes affidavit that
he surrendered only when he saw
that escape was impossible. Dudley,
pistol in hand, said to his captive, "A
word from you or a particle of redjst
ance and I shall drop you."
An accusation of that sort will not
stick to the General. There is no
truth in it whatever. It was certain
ly a misfortune to be "gobbled" and
pitched into Fort Lafayette, but one
must have a good sized log of politi
cal kindling wood in his eye to see'
any evidence of desertion in the case.
The war is over and we can afford to
lay aside personal prejudices and be
just in judgement.:-N Y Herald.
The Case Against Ge,. Pryor.
The New York Herald is positive
that the Newn and Courier "has no
case when it charges" that Gen.
Roger A. Pryor deserted from the
Confederate army during the war.
The news and Courier has never made
such a charge. It published the
statement of Geu. hemphill, of Abbe
ville, S. C., upon the subject, and is
content to let the matter rest where
the witnesses have placed it.
What the Aews and Courier has
said, however, is that Gen. Fryor
does not represent the South upon
any public question, and that his
views on the tariff, the race question,
the proper policy for the President to
pursue in his treatment of the South, j
must be accepted as Gen, Pryor's per
sonal oninions in regard to matters of
which he knows very little, and about
which he can speak with no more au-:
thority than a hundred thousand oth-1
er men who live in the North.
Gen. Pryor says he did not desert
from the Confederate army and has
produced strong proof to sustain his
assertion. He is entitled to the ben
efit of whatever doubt there may be
upon the subject. We only ask that he
devote his attention hereafter to the
practice of his profession, and that he
shall not mislead the people of the k
North about questions of opi.ion in
which he is not directly concerned,
and of whose immediate bearings he
can have no knowledge. H is resi
dence of more than twenty-five years
in New York entitles the South to the .
grace of his silence.-'News and (ou:r-'

Dawson was slain, within earshot of
where Dawson's widow and orphan
children sat disconsolate, and that ie

trol of it.
During the drat months of the change the
improvement made in it was so pronounced
that it came to be recognized at once as
A hIve, Bright and Biant Newspaper.
Its news columns are filled with the freshest
of foreign, domestic and local news. Its edi
torials are crisp, positive and bold. Its Demo
cratic principles are so pronounced and ortho
dox that the Democratic National Committe,
on its recent reorganization, selected It" athe
medium for placing its official action land
utterances before the voters of the party. It
urges united Democracy in nation, State and
city; and is the advocate of no individual' er
the organ of no faction.
