DEAUTWUL SNOW.--On Sunday
morning, the first snow of the season
bcgan falling, and in a short time the
ground was covered. It was "too
bright to last," however, and melted
away almost as rapidly as it. had come.
1)EATH OF MR. IENIRY C,ARK.-Mr.
Henry Clark, a highly respected citi
zen of this county, died at his home a
few days since at the advanced age of
sventy-soven years. The deceased
- ' ha-1, by his strict integrity and geuer
al high character, made a large num
ber of friends. These join with his
kindred in the deep regret felt at his
death, and in doing honor to his
V A.ENTINEL'S I)A.--The fourteenth
of February was duly celebrated in
Winnsboro. A large number of Val.
entines passed through the postofllce,
some breathing the tenderest accents
of l've, and adorned with unadorned
cupids and bleeding hearts, but the
majority were of a very difierent
nature. Some of the latter were
amusing, some silly, some a little
malicious, and all causing amusement
either to the receiver or the sender, or
both. The valentine venders did a
It'sjust a little strange how willing
ly people will pay fifty cents to witness
the very poor performance of a stroll
ing troupe like the "Globe Comedy
Company," and at the same time
think a quarter of a dollar quite
enough to be charged by a party of
ladies and gentlemen who work for
charity, and who give an exhibition
which, in refinement and general merit,
is~ far supeLrior to any given by thme
'Globe Comedy Company" dlur
ing their late performance in Winns

A CASE FORl Cmm.uar.-On Sat ur
day Dr. Robertson was called to his
door, and on going out found a poor
woman with an infant four weeks old
in her armas, and leading a boy about
three or four years old. The boy wvas
suffering from a grain of corn that had
lodged in his wIndpipe about three
weeks ago. The umother, who gives
her name as Mrs. Gibson, as soon as
she could travel, started out on foot
with her two children from Doko, and
walked to Simpson's Turnout, whero
she got a ride from a passing wagon.
She appears to be in circumstances of'
great destitution. Through the chari
ty of certain parties she was furnished
with lodgings, and the child's throat
was cut open on Sunday. Though
the physicians failed to extract the
grain, the child is doing as well as
could be expected, and hopes are en
tertained that the corn may yet be
taken out and that the child will re
cover. This Is a case of charity, and
any contributIons of clothing or other
things for the children will nmot be
amiss. The party should also be sent
home. on the train. In reply to a
statement going the rounds some time
since that trachiotomy is a very rare
operation, we would say that one
physician alone in WVinnsborO hag
performed seven such operations in
the ordinary course of county practice.
Thme opergion is a-vry .delicato oge
but it is said to be successful nine
times out of teu, unlose the obstructing

long enough to become encysted.
''IIE CIRCUIT COUIr.-Since our
last report the Court has been engaged
lin the trial of civil causes. Of these
the following is a synopsis:
W. R. Sykes vs. James Moore
Messrs. McCants & Douglass for
plaintiff, Colonel Iion for defendant.
This was an issue made up under the
agricultural lien law, to determine the
amount due by the lionor to the lience,
The plaintiff had advanced to the de.
fendant, and had levied up/)i the lat
ter's crap under an agricultural lien,
The plaintifl had the question of
amount due brought to court. The
amount involved was between sever
aud eight dollars. The matters in dis
pute between the parties were the
prices for supplies advanced, the rate
of interest, and the application of cer
tain moneys paid by the plaintiff. The
jury were instructed to bring in a
special verdict. The jury found as
follows: "We find that there was no
agreement as to the price to he)charged
by the plaint.iff, and that corn must he
charged at $1.10 per bushel, bacon at
12 1-2 cents per pound, and coffee at
25 cents per pound ; and we further
find that the ten dollars, payment
made by defendant, be applied to the
W. Rt. Kennedy vs. Jeff. J. Posey
Messrs. Gaillard & Reynolds for
plaintiff, Mr. A. M. Mackey for de
fondant. This wasan action toget pos
session of real property. The plaintiff
claimed the land in question by virtue
of a deed of conveyance from the Sec
retary of State. The defendant al
leged that ho had gone into possession
under a "certificate of purchase" from
the Land Commission, had paid ccr
sums in part of the purchase-money,
and had assigned to the plaintiff the
"certificate of purchase" as collateral
security for certain advances-which
advances, the defendant claimed, had
been fully paid for. The plaintiffs
evidence showed that in his purchase
from the Secretary of State the Secre
tary had made allowance for the sums
of money paid by Posey-notwith
standing the fact that, under the t(rmts
of the "certificate of purchase" Posey
had forfeited all claim whatever to the
laud. Upon this turn in the case, his
honor the presiding judge ruled that
Kennedy was a mere mortgagee of
Posey, to the extent of any money due
by the latter out of the transaction
wherehi the certificate of purchase
had been pledged, in addition to the
amount paid by Kennedy to the
Secretary of,State, with interest from
the date of the deed. His Honor,
holding that the question of title was
not before the Court, ruled that the
only matter before the jury was the
determination of the amount due by
Poscy to Kiennmedy on the entire
transaction involved in the case. T he
evidence on b'othi sides was then
heard--the ease consuming the entire
day. The jury returned the follow ing
verdict: "WYe iad, on the mortgage,
judgment for the plaintiff in the sum
or one hund~red and thirty-three anid
sixty..three one-hund Wred the dlolars"
this b)eing the amount paid by Ken
nody to the Secretary of State, with
interest, andl thme t.axes paid by the
former on the land ini question.

Daniel Scott, Deceased, vs. Frank
Lei tner-Messrs. McCants & IDouglass
for lalintiff, anid Colonel Itioni for
defendant. This was anm appeal from
a decision of rial Justice Glenmn.
Tfhe action was brought to recover
plossession of a certauin cow. The
trial justice decided for tihe p)laintiff,
and the defendant apper.led. The
jury in the Circuit Court found for
For several days there has been
much quiet gossip at Washington

had called upon Mrs. Bruce, the
wife of thme colored senator from

none of the wives of Democratic
senators have called upon Mrs.
Bruce, but that several Dernocratic
