This morning avery handsome gentleman
was seen riding down to the post office in a

in such good company created as much of a

out of Charleston for frightening the chil

realize the importance of the trade from
this section, and are out in this issue invit
ing the attention of the people to their large
and attractive stock of dress good, notions,
hats, shoes, clothing, etc. These gentlemen
are among the most enterprising and relia
ble merchants in that city. Tbey have a
large corps of gentlemanly clerks, who take
pleasure in exhibiting their goods and in
furnishing samples on application by mail
or in person. They claim to sell honest
goods at honest prices, and give a great va
riety to select from, and we have never
heard this claim disputed.
If you want a cool and refreshing drink
goto Lowry's and get a glass of his spark

Quite a sensation was created among the
colored people last Saturday. A white man
by the name of Reddic, who is employed
at Harvins' mill, struck a little colored boy,
the son of Nathan Nelson. with a beer bot
tle, cutting a gash in the boy's head. mak
ing an ugly wound. The alleged cause of
the striking was that young Nelson struck
the child of Mr. Reddie, wbich so incensed
the father that he picked up the beer bottle
and broke it on the head of the colored boy.
Complaint was made to Trial Justice Tim
nons, who issued a warrant and had Reddie
arrested immediately. Reddic pleaded
,ilty to the charge of assault and battery.

Our people are taking hold in earnest of

the Fiji Islands, will lecture in in the Insti

said to be very instructive and entertaining.
He lectures to night in the A. M. E. Church.
Besides Edmund Holladay there is only
one other rilsoner in th. jail. Lizzie Bur
gess, a colored Amazon, of Salem, was not
able to give a bond to keep the peace, and is
languishing in jail. Unless she is able to
give the bond, she will spend a year and a
day in this house of detention.

wll find it no trcuble to see her goods.
Provisions continue advancing in price.
From yesteidav's Charleston quotations we
get the followin'g for the best quality of each
article: granulated sugar 5; bacon sides 7;
lard S.; flour $7.25; corn $1.00. The prob
abilitf is that the necessaries of life will
continue to rise in price all the summer.
Elsewhere will be found a call for the or
ganization of a Survivors' County Associa
tion of Confederate soldiers. It will take
only a day to attend this meeting, and the
enjoyment to be derived therefrom will far
more than repay for the lost day's time.
Let every old soldier in the county attend.
May will soon be here, and with it will
come the natural desire of the clerks to have
the early afternoon closing. Last year the
stores were closed at 7 o'clock, but why not
lose up this year at G o'clock, thereby giv
ing the clerks an extra hour? If all go into
this arrangement, it will be a great pleasure
to the clerks and at the same time not hurt
the trade of the merchants.
Confederate Soldiers, Attention!
After a conference of anamber of the
Confederate soldiers of this county, we have
been requested to issue a call for a meeting
of the survivors of the soldiers engaged in
the late war, to be held in the court house at
Manning, the first Monday in May at 12
o'clock, noon. It is desired that all who
were in any way engaged in service, wheth
er as regular troops or militia, shall respond
to this call, and form a Confederate Surviv
Drs' Association, with a view of being rep
resented at the State Survivors' Association
to be organized in Columbia in May, during
the Centennial. H. L. BENBow,

To be Hanged Friday.
Edmund Holladay, colored, will be hang
ed next Friday. Arrangements have been
made to have the execution in the jail yard,
and only a few persons will be permitted to
witness the hanging.
A reporter for the TIEs called at the jail
yesterday afternoon to interview Hiolladay.
He was found in the dungeon, lying on his
pallet, and complaining of feeling a little
unwell. He showed no disposition to be
talkative, and while he answered all ques
tions, sometimes after considerable hesita
tion, yet he volunteered no information
He says he is sorry he had to shoot Mr.
DuBose, but that he was running on him
with a knife, and he felt impelled to shoot
him in self-defense. He says the preachers
have not been to see him overly much, -in
all he has had but five or six pastoral visits,
but he says he is ready to go when the Mas
ter calls, and feels, when he thinks of the
hour of his execution, "I will fall right into
Christ's arms." He expects, he says, to say
a few words next Friday on the scaffold, but
had no desire now to make any statement
for the press.
Edmund Holladay says he is about thirty
three years old, was born on Jacks Creek in
this county, and has been living near Packs
vile for twenty years. He has a wife and
six children, the oldest about twvelve years
of age. His father and mother are both
living. He also has a brother living. None
of these have visited him since his sen
T'he Feast of Passover.
On the eve of the 14th day Nissan, cor
responding this year with the 22d day of
April, the descendalhts of Abraham celebrate
their annual festival, "Pesach," or feast of
unleavened bread, in commemoration of
their redemption from Egyptian bondage,
as is recorded in the Book of Exodus. Un
der the requirements of the Mosaic law, all
males of a certain age assembled at Jerusa
lem to observe this sacred feast, in order
that their piety and devotion might be
strengthened and their brotherly love in
It was upon the recurren'ce of the Pass
over and under the inspiration of its glori
os associations that Judas Maccabee, the
renowned warrior, read to his valiant sons
and the assembled thousands the history of
the redemption of their ancestors from the
thraldom and persecution of the Egyptians,
and to this fact may be ascribed the heroic
and successful struggles of the gallant As
moneans against the powerful legions of
Syria and Rome. In that era of strife and
bloodshed the celebration of the Passover
had a twofold signification- a blending of
the religious idea with the civil polity,-in
order to restrain the cupidity and ambition
of aggressive nationality. Since the de
struction of the second temple the celebra
tion of th" festival has been and is still ob
served as a purely religious holiday.
Before the advent of the festival every
Jewish house is thoroughly cleansed and
purged of every article containing leaven,
the use of which is strictly forbidden by the
injunction: "Ye shall not have anything
in your houses containing leaven." This
was not only a sanitary measure, but was
also intended to impress the Jewish mind
with the loving kindness of~ the Deity, who
had delivered their ancestors from mental
and corporal slavery.
The services of -the household and syna
gogue are replete with this narration of the
redemption of the people after four hun
dred years of fear'ful servitude. The re
cital of the miracle performed by Moses,
and the chanting of his grand and elo
quent epic, "I will simg unto the Lord, for
He hath triumphed gloriously, the horse
and his rider hath He thrown into the sea,"
together with the foreshadowing cf the law
and the possession of the holy land, arc
embodied in the Ritual and household ser
vices, and are both solemn and impressive.
Old and young of both sexes unite in offer
ing the incense of prayer and grateful hom
age to God, who had not only condescended
to break asunder the chains which had en
slaved Israel for centuries, but that He had
also chosen to make them "a peculiar peo
pe," living witnesses of' His Omnipotence
and unity to all mankin.d.-Xew's and Cou

honestly with our citiz-ns? Is it not a 1oop

man have to lay aside conscience to muake
money out of it? I heard a genticeman say
he could not favor the repeai of the lieu
law because it was the only chance to get
clear of a blind mule. It destroys lab.r, it
enriches a few, causes litigation, trouble,
and anxiety no little. I believe that tbc
lien law and the houestead laws will be the
ruin of South Carolina, and should be r.
pealed. Many of your readers may differ
with me, but I can give numib.rs of cases
where I have examined accoumts where the
necessaries of life have been s ld at enor
mous prices. I can cite several cases where
men have been forced by this cancerous
curse to make a full title to their lands. Let
the farmers continue to plant il! cotton, fail
to raise their corn, buy all their meat, and
the entire land will'be filled with poor

justice will be meted out to them.
