A bill before Congress to refund
the direct war taxes to tho Bovcial
States has been reported favorably
by tho House Committee. If the
bill becomes a law, South Carolina
will recoivo a rebate of 6377,961.30.
Mr. Cleveland lias cleared up all

A class is to bc formed in tho South
Carolina Training School for Nurses
in Charleston, S. C., on tho first of
April. Persons wishing to apply
should do so at an oarly dato, ns but
a limited number can bo received.
All necessary information can bo
obtained from the principal.
The Atlantic Coast Lino has assumed
control of thc restaurants at Wilming
ton und Weldon, and will have thc
tables at both places supplied with thc
best the market affords. French cooks
have been employed, and tho fare will
be equal in all respects to that of any
hotel in tho country.
The weather in thc Northwest is
doing inimouse damage. The snow is
several feet deep and all trains are
blockaded. Passengers are cooped up
at villages and stations along tho lines
and all mails are several daysdolayed.
To add to tho intenso cold and deep
snow tho weather is tempestuous.
Great suffering ia tho invitablo and
Mr. Cleveland's resignation as Gov
ernor of New York was misconstruct
ed by an old backwoodsman at Little
Rock, Ark. Said ho: "Tharl I
know'd it. I knowM they'd skeor
liim outen it at last. Ain't been
'lectcd mor'n a month, and now hos
ter gin up. Fust thing you know
old Tom Hendricks will fling up his
hands and quit too.
Tho Sun says that Mr. Cleveland
has thrice offered thc treasuryship to
S. J. Bundall, which in tho language
of Marc Anthony, ho "did thrice ro
fuse." U said further that ho then
offered thc place to Daniel Manning,
of New York, and that he accoptcd.
Furthermore, tho Sun says Bayard
will be Secretary of State. But the
trouble about the whole thing is, tho
Sun does not know, but is only gues
sing liko tho rest.

From, tho Marlon Index*
Siuco tho restoration of the Doniocraoy
to powor, tho people of tho Pee Doo
seotion hare been oxtrouioly modest in
advancing tho thoir claims for recognition
io tho distribution of offices, To-day this
populous and tjioh section has no roprcs
ontativo in tho Kxcoutivo Dopartmcnt of
tho Stato Govornmont. This hoing tho
case, it would bo cmiuontiy prooor for us
to re?oive sotno recognition io thc dispo
sition of tho offioors soon io bo appointed
by Mr. Olovoland, and upon this theory
and his qualifications and fitnoss to dis
ohargo tho duties of tho position wo
would urge tho selection of Capt. JameB
A. Drake, of Marlborough, for United
Btatos Marshal. Ho is very popular in
this whole section, is and has always been
a devoted democrat, and whilo ho would
undoubtedly perform tho duties of tho
office with honor und credit, his appoint
ment would be especially gratifying to his
many friends in this portion cf thc State.
Death of Hov. J. W. Kolly.
Tho Hov. John W. Kolly, a prominent
moiubor of tho South Carolina Confer?
once, died suddonly nt Orimgeburg on
Wednesday last, 18th inst. We got
tho following f.om tho Nows and Courier
of tho flth:
Ilia death was ontiroly unexpected,
aud will be a sad surprise to a wide cir
cle of frionds.. Mr. Kelly was about 00
years of age, aud had been conncotcd with
thc ministry of his church for moro than
thirty years. Ho was n well-educated
mon, and thoroughly equipped for the
important clerical dation to which he was
frequently called. Tho first yours of hi?
ministry were spent in tho mining camps
of California, where ho labored with
great zeal and efficiency. Ile filled thc
office of presiding cldor in several of thc
district? of tho South Carolina Confer
enco, and was noted throughout the
church for his groot powers of organiza?
tion and his wonderful command of nico.
As u pulpit orator ho was ouo of thc
stronges and most eloquent micistors of
tho Methodist church. His preaching
was'plain, but being filled with practical
religion it was always effective. 1 lo had
a fino voice and a ready flow of language.
His sermons were distinguished by sound
logic and in nil of tho important stations
to which ho was assigned his labors wore
crowned with eminent success. At tho
last annual meeting of tho Conference
Mr- Kolly was assigned to tho Pro 'dence
Circuit in Orangcbuig District and was

^ The Politioal Current.
Mr. Cleveland will not go to Wash
ington, liko Grant, to surround him
self with old camp-fire chums, to ac
cept gifts, to favor money-making
Cabiuct officers, to stand by Whiskey
Ring|secretnries, and to "work thc po
sition for all it is worth. Mr. Cleve
land does not go to Washington, like
Hays, to reward tho rascals who stoic
the office for him, to save all his sal
ary, and to sponge upon tho Govern
ment in a petit larceny way through
Treasury ?.miscellanies1" Mr. Cleve
land does not go to thc National cap
itol, like Arthur, to enjoy good din
ners, exhibit himself at balls, lay in
bcd until noon, keepasnug"cabinet,"
not for his councollors hut for "tho
boys," and have a "good timo" gen
erally. Mr. Cleveland goes to Wash
ington to have a very laborous, trying
time, with serious work before him,
and with tho earnest intention to per
form it thoroughly and honestly-not
that ho may personally have a "good
time," but that thc country may have
good times.-Now York World Deni"
Senator Hampton refuses to agree
to tho caucus plan of nominating fed
eral offices for South Carolina-that
is, a plan by which tho whole delega
tion in Congress should select by Bal
lot tho names to be recommended for
Presidential appointment. Ho says
that he will gladly receive any re
commendations from the members
of tho House, but will not he hound
by them; that tho constitution pro
vides that these appointments shall bc
made "with the advice and concent
of tho Senate," and he declines to shift
this responsibility or share it with oth
ers. He says:
"if my advice is asked, Twill re
commend thc applicant who has tho
strongest endorsement, who is, in my
judgement, most competent, and who
is most acceptable to our people."
