Court Of Sessions.
The machinery of the Court was
promptly at work at 10 a. m., on yes
terday morning. Judge K. G. Wattn,
Solicitor T. 8. Sease and Stenographer
Campbell were in their places prompt
ly. Judge Watts charged the Grand
Jury fully as to their general duties,
and took occasion to compliment the
county upon the well known character
of the population for thrift, industry
and progress. Mr. A. W. Sims was
made foreman. The body I? unusually
intelligent and the same may be said of
tin- panels of petit juries. John Foster
and Henry Fleming entered a plea of
guility of assault with intent to kill.
It was a case of shooting a colored per
son, the accused nlso colored.
Tlie following true bills were re
turned on yesterday before the dinner
Agninst John Miller, colored, for the
murder of Spencer Simpson, a white
man, near Clinton last autumn. (This
oasc is assigned for trial to-day);
against Hnttie Flecther, colored, mur
der of a colored girl; against Win
Wright and Nod Koseman, colored, for
murder of a colored girl; against Wm
Johnson, arson ; Charlie Allen , arson :
Jack Lewis, larceny; against Tom
Beasley for murder. Beasley has not
been arrested. About noon Solicitor
Sease was necessitated to turn over his
duties to L. W. Simkins, Esq. on ac
count of indisposition. We hope it
is only temporary. This is Mr Sease's
first term hero, but he comes with com
plimentary notices of his conduct of his
office at Spartanburg and Union.
The criminal cases will probably oc
cupy until Thursday night of the
Court, but it is impossible at this writ
ing to say that the entire week will
not be consumed in clearing the jail.
Jno. Foster and Henry Fleming were
each sentenced to pay $25.00 or three
months on the chain gang. They paid.
The trial of Hattie Fletcher for murder
is fixed for to-morrow morning and
Will Wright and Ned Hosemond, mur
der, for Thursday morning. Jack Lewis
charged with house breaking and
larcency was acquitted.
True bills were returned in the case
of Ira T. Willinms, larceny, and Louis

Mr. W. W. Ball, who for two years
has edited tho Charleston Evening
Post, it is announced, has resigned that
position, and will tako chargo of tho
editorial columns of the Greenville
News. Hero is what his formor neigh
bor, tho News and Courier has to say
upon the incident:
"Tho News and Courior must con
fess that it was "scooped" by both its
afternoon contemporaries yesterday in
giving tho nows that tho editorial
management of the Evening Post by
Mr. W. W. Ball would end with tho
curront week Wo havo known for
two or three weeks that such a step
would bo takon, but having obtalnod
tho Information In confidonce from Mr.
Ball hlmsolf we had to suppress the
nows. It Is just as well, ho wovor, as
wo do not care to bo always tho first to
bring bad nows to this community.?
Mr. Ball is going to Groonvillo to tako
charge of tho Groonvillo Dally Nows.
Ho will bo auccoodod In tbe editorial
conduct of tho Evening Post by Thomas
It. Waring, and tho business manage
ment of tho paper will romaln In tho
hands of that staunch descendant of me
Covenanters, Mr. F. H. McMastor.?
Mr. Waring is woll qualified for tbe
larger responsibilities which will rest
upon him, and Mr. McMastor has
mado himself ossontial to his pupor.
As for Mr. Ball, whilo regretting his
doparturo from Charleston, wo cannot
express too warmly or strongly our
good wishes for him In his now field of
newspaper endeavor. Ho has mado
many frionds in Charleston and will
leave his homo here greatly to thoir
regrot. Though absent In tho llesb,
howovcr, ho will bo present in tho
spirit, for when ho reaches Greenville
we shall bo assurred that Charleston
will havo at least ono live, active mis
sionary in tho Piedmont. Bo will
havo a big Hold to cultivate and wo
havo no doubt that ho will cultivate
It woll. Wo wish blm tho groatost
success and prosperity.
Hero Is what the Stato says, which
is wedded to a Sliver Goddess, and
loyal to our auti-divorco laws:
"Mr. W. W. Ball will tako to tho
Greenville News, .. bright and frisky
pen and a wlnsomj humor, but wo
hope, for his own sake and tbat of Tho
Nows, that ho will loavo bohind him
tho oxtremo goldolatry which has
characterised tho Charleston Post un
der his management. Lot It remain
In Charleston, its only congonlal abodo
In South Carolina.
Mr. Ball is woll known as tbe Pro
prietor and formor editor of The Ad
vertiser and while wo lovo Charles
ton v none tho less, wo aro glad to havo
him and his fortunes in tho glorious
Piedmont soction of tho Stato and co
operating with us in pushing it to Its
early certain greatness.
A writer in tbo Columbia Register,
signing himself "Agricola," raises tho
question?"Are Lawyers officers?" If
so, they cannot under our constitution
bo members of tho Legislature. They
are merely licentiates, not "officers.
They are in tho category of ministers
and physicians. Thoy tako an oath,
but not an "oath of office." A minister
of the gospol might be made to'tako an
oath to maintain the Stato and United
States Constitutions; but no official du
ties would follow by that fact.
To our many friends and customers
we extend thanks for past patronage,
and promise to push our business with
renewed zeal and energy, that we may
merit a largor share of patronage in
tho future Wo hope that this may be
a happy and pro9porous year with all.
