Heard vs. Brata*.
A corporal's gaard of farmners me
in the Court House on Saturday last
and Mr. T.' S. Brice took occasion t4
indulge 1i some personal reflection
on the editors of Tai NRws ari
HERA..D. Ho seemed to think that w
were "upstarts" and sadly deficient i
the matter of "boards."
Our objeotions to Mr. Brico are of
a different line. We think he has
vastly more beard than brains.
We think, too, that he is cne of thi
last men that ought to court a contro
versy to be settled with intolleotua
weapons, but this is a matter for bin
to decide; it is enough for us to kn or
that in the simplicity of his under
standing he has indulged in an unpre
Yoked personal attack trpon us.
We, therefore, take occasion to sa
to Mr. Brico that we are perfectl
willing that he should masquerad
around here as the tall to Mr. Til
man's kite, and flop and flop as ofte
as he wants to, but we warn the ge
tietnan that if he ventures agal
around this office in the ostentation o
his bearded superiority, we will shea
him closer than Delilah over sheare

The Aequaittal of Mt.. George Johnstone.
(2VNeto and (lourier~.)
The promptitude withr which Mr.
George Johnstono was acquitted on
his trial for the murder of Mr. John
B. Jones at Newberry in March last
is nilly accounted for by the evidence
as published in the News and Uourier.
There is no room to doubt that the
killing was in self-defense, and that
* ~ Mr. Johnstone was entirely free ni'omi
It is shown, however, that both
Johnstone and Jones were armed
when they entered the Court-room in
which the fatal encounter took place.
Mr. Johnstone had been led to ox peel
an attack, it is true; but the attack
could have been prevented. The vio
lation of the State law against carry.
ing concealed weapons gave Mr. Jones
the means of imperriluing Mir. John
stone's life, and at the saine timeo
caused' him to lose ihis own. H-ad
both* Jones and Jo9hnstone been up
armed: when the immediate cause of
the mortal combat arose there would
have been time for reflec(ion and for a
peaceful settlement* of differences.
Still It Is evident that, if Mr. John
stone alone Ihad been unarmed he
would, In all probability, have Leen
killed on the spot.
We iobserve that, in the report of
the trial, it is stated that both the
conpqi for the defence fond fault
with ~the press, for 'various publica.
ti a and ,osnm nt, We are no
aware that special fault has been foun
with 'comments of the. News an
, in_'these columns. They
wi arrated by the facts, as Thry
~o, could be as4ex'tained, But,i,

4 rer. s of ocourso was
both noorrect and wrong. Although
the result of pure thoughtlessness, it is
none the less to be regretted.
Mr. Johnstono, as we have said, is.
completely exonerated, and, we are
confident to the entire satisfaction of
the public. None can regret more
than he regrets the awful necessity
9 which circumstances im osed upon
him; but there was no choice, no alter
native. A man of proved courage,
character and capacity he is ow free
to continue a career whlch cannot fail
to be honorable to himself and advan
tageous to his fellow-citizens.
