-U uring the rush at the sale of the
ts Q. D. Williford's stock the negroes
ave taken advantage of the opportu
ity to steal and have given a great
eal f trouble. On Saturday the
kock was in considerable confusion,
wing to the crowd of buyers in the
ore all day, and several negroes were
etected trying to steal. On Monday
gain the same trouble occurred, and
,ill Cordes, a negro, was c'mught car
r'ing off a trunk. He was arrested
d carried before Maguistrate Cath
irt. He plead guilty and was sen
inced to pay a fine of $15 or 25 days
n the public works. The store was
osed until 12 o'clo~ck on Tuesday In
ider to arrange the stock and prevent
irther stealing as far as pes-ib!e.
-The grave of the old revointionary
ldier, Caspt. Mitchell, which is in the
eld nrth of the Episcopal cemetery,

iid-t of a cotlon field and even the
nal clump of trees thiat for years
rew around the grave have been cut
swn and cotton is planted up to the
ery ides of the grave The resting
lace of tbis old soldier is marked by a
arble slab erec'ed byr Major Henry
oore to his friend and comrade, and
irely if' Capt. Mitchell was thus
nored and respected by his friend
e people of.Winnsbory should show
fficient re-pect to his memory and
ppreiation of his services during the
volution either to inmclose his grave
!ith a railing or to remove his re
tains to the adjoining cemetery where
is g rave would be protected. Some
teps sould be taken by the citizens
f the town in this mater. We have
rged this matter before and hope that
ur people will consider it and act
romply upon it. It would be but r.
rifiing expense and the town could
asily do it.

WILL STAND FOR RE-ELE CTION.
The following in regard to Judge
Buchanan's candidacy for re-election
at the expiration of his term of office,
is taken from the Sumter Watchman.
Judge Bdchanan was in Sumter for a
few days, and a reporter for the
Watchman held a conversation with
him on the subject. It will interest
*Judge Buchanan's te
pire until December,
succesior will.not, be
ther early to
e positi .
In a conversation with the writer
to-day Judge Buchanan stated that he
had authorized no one to announce
that he would not be a candidate for
re-lection, and any statement to that
effect is unfounded.
At the prese it timo he sees no rea
aon to discuss the matter as the elec
tion is so far off, but his intention is to
stand for re-election, and he believes
that he will be re-elected WK~out seri
os, it any, opposition.
