Three ot the candidates for City Clerk
told us yesterday, each, in his turn, to mark
his prediction. The prediction was that he
was tis sure to be elected ns the sun was to
go down on the evening of election day.
The candidate who pooh, pool is the idea
that there was any doubt about his election
didn't call around.
A negro man, with a leg swolen to the
size of his body, almost, is hobbling about
tho city, obtaining his food and lodging
wherever he can, He says he is a river
man, received his injuries in the service,
and although entitled to admission to the
hospital, he wan refused. There is another
side to this story, undoubtedly; but be
hat as it may, tho poor fellow ought to
be cared for.
Grave fears are entertained for the
safety of the peach crop. It is believed
that the earlier which nre the best varieties,
arc entirely cut off. In some localities the
buds were on the point of bursting into
bloom. Many of the pluin trees were white
with full-blown blossoms. A snow storm
would have wrought no serious conse
quences; but a sleety rain-fall and freeze,
have, it is believed, worked general havoc.

Little Ida, youngest daughter of Squire
Thomas Martain, of (loose Island, met with
a mishap, Saturday, that caused her death
on Sunday. The little girl accompanied
her father to the orchard, and Mr. Martain
noticing a patch of dry grass applied a
match to it, and then proceeded to his work
of pruning his fruit trees. He had pursued
this work but a short time when ho heard
the scream of his child, and looking around
saw her enveloped in flames. Her cloth

and before he could reach her, her clothing
had burned from her body and fairly cooked
her limbs and a portion of her body. The
little creature suffered indescribable agonies
for about 2 t hours when death kindly came

we can say, that experience has shown cop

something better. Let the cleansing process

who will use it in whitewashing their

infecting purposes to those who are unable
lo buy it. These suggestions acted upon,
promptly and generally, and by the first
day of May we will have the cleanest and

tlie experience of last summer, answrr.
It is quite u fortunate thing for tic
colored people thems"lve-i that their pecu
liar habits of magnifying mere peccadil
loes into great crimes, and suspicious of
wrong doing intostartling Inrnrs. is under
stood. Were it not generally understood,
they would be continually talking one an
other into trouble. On Saturday la-d a col
ored man named Gwinn called upon Mrs.
Ross, also colored, and gave her a very an
imated, "able-bodied" cursing. Mrs. Ress
sued, and Squire Osborn fined (i v. inn five
dollars and cost. Prior to the tiial and dur
ing its progress , the topie of dis
cussion among colored spectators was the
sudden death, a few nights before, of Mrs.
Ross' little step-child. It was alleged that
the woman declared she'd "choke the day
lights out of the brat before it w.-t-sa week
older, for she 'expised' it anyho.v." A
woman who was in some manner related to
to the child, declared that the very night
tho child died, she dreamed that a two
horse team came dashing down that very
street and fairly brushing her dress as she
jumped out of the way, it ran directly over
two or three children, and scattered their
arms, heads ami log, toes, fingers and teeth,
all along tlic street to Commercial avenue;
and "how could I dreamed that way," in
quired the superstitious creature, "if that
child wasn't choked to d-ath ?" A third
declared that ho heard the woman say she
had put the little devil where it would quit
wearing the life out of her; and still
another had heard threats and confes
sions that pointed rather directly
to a case of murder. The Squi re
living caught most of this conversa
tion felt quite confident that 1m was going
to ferret out a case of murder. Happily he
had got together the witnesses that would
establish at least a stiong probability of
guilt; and he at once shaped his qii"s',ions
to that end, putting nearly all those who
had been talking the matter over, under
oath. And right then and there he learned,
if he hadn't learned it before, that negroes
are wonderful panic-makers, horror lovers
and sensationalists. While all of them
lied, wit', out any compunction ofconsciei.ee.
in talking the matter over tee tlier, none of
ih -m would repeat th--ir statements under
oath. And thus were the Squire's hopes
of tUM-nsthing a murder, suddenly d:s:ipa

One of the candidates for a ci'y ofiicc
called upon a colored preacher, the ntherday,
and avowed hiins-lf honored by the ac
quaintance ; deeply interested ill the welfare
of the colored race, and as ever ready to
lend a helping hand in every scheme that
looked to their moral and mental elevation.
Then spake the colored niinit.ter substan
tially thus: "You and I, sir, have lived in
