DoMen Gather Figs of ThiLtles?
It is as reasonu.le to expect Fig from
thistles as to look for ,ood results when
poor seeds are plauted. If You plant an
acorn you calitot gather apricots, and
if YOU'sowr poor anll old seeds you can
nlot have large;( anld solid cabbla,e hrs
nor round anid regular tomatoes, nor
perfect and juiey eanteloupes. The
moral of this is, Be sure you get good
seeds, to avoid disappp)1ointmlenlt. Lan
dretl's see(s are regarded the best all
over the Unitel States, and you can get
the fresh crop at Pelhail's Drug Store.

JUDGE WALLACE'S CHARGE
> the Grand Jury was an able, full and
ear one as to their general duties.
fter charging them with reference to
te bills in hand he told them that
icy were to act in a visitorial capaeity.
nd that during the year they should ex
'nine all the public offices, and if they
mund anything wrong in the manage
ent of any of them it should be brought
the attention of the Solicitor; and not
mly that, it was but fair to the public
rvants of the county, that, if it was
mund any of themt had been faithful,
ey should say so, and let these ser
ants have the well done of their fellow
tizens for duties faithfully performed.
Our liberty-lovingancestors had trans
itted to us a free government, where
ie w ill of the governed was the highest

-ee institutions much depends on the
irtue and intelligence of our citizenship,
'he modes and methods heretofore em
loyed in the administration of justice
ere both effieient and sufficient. It i
ot so much the manner and modes of
dministering justice, as the failure of
iose interested to do their duty, that
auses the miscarriage of justice. No1
ne number of challenges allowed the
efendant. You rarely see a jury of
,velve men concur in a verdict that i;

Whenever any one has committed

oth sides are carefully heard, and whet
welve men agree in a verdict, in ninety
ine cases out of a hundred their find

to be found in false swearing on the

'lien the rights of the stranger only are
rotected,and the rights of the weak are

The Grand Jury should not form itsel:
io a detective agency. It is the dut,
f every citizen when he knows the lav
as been violated to bring the violator:
justice. The violai ion of the crimi
al law effects one or more persons as

orced does a patriotic act.
Whenever public offences are commit
ed they should be investigated by th

rivate nature and brought to the atten

The Coroner's Inquestst the
Last week we published meagre ac
-ounts of two inquests held by the ar
['oroner. The one on the body of Josh on:
Hendesron, who was at first thought ley'
to have died from natural causes and la.:
n' stated by us last week, developed ar
into what was considered by the Cor- con
oner's jury into a case of death at the
hands of some one by a gun-shot
wound. The case was one of purely
circumstantial evidence. Henderson I
was found with his head in the fire- by
place, in the house alone, and with his ttiiu
head badly burned. Upon examina- F
tion by Dr. Houseal a gun-shot wound Cat
was found in his head and it was the Ne
opinion of the doctor that this wound Mi
was the cause of Henderson's death. Cot
The evidence before the jury pointed
to one Tom Sims as the guilty party, r
and upon a warrant from the Coroner Mi
upon the finding of the jury, Sims was Col
arrested and put in charge of Mr. W.
W. Caldwell as constable. But Sims 3
seems to have concluded it was not 188
good for him to go to jail, and just as yea
Mr. Caldwell got in town Sims broke
loose and made good his escape. ber
It seems that Henderson and Simis age
had been in the habit of gambling, and e
no donbt quarreled over the game.
The other case, on the death of Isaac L
Boozer, who was found dead in the Feb
woods, the investigation was con-Ba
cluded here on Saturday. There was ce
a big erowd of negroes present and the 2
testimony was taken in the Court Ep
House. The jury reached a verdict Hat
that Boozer came to his death from Pt
the blow. of an axe or some blunt
pointed instrument in the hands of
Patience Chalmers, and that Margaret ,,
Chalmers, her daughter, was acces- bee
sory. The two women were arrested resi
and are now in jail. Their cases will
not be tried at this term of the Court. 1
There was a big crowd in town Mon- nlo
dlay and everybody seemed happy. We
heaird of two or three fights but did not V
see any. The Mayor will try Sa]eday o
offenders on Saturday. Most of it,e
fights 'vere old fashioned fisticuffs and 'I
nobody was seriously hurt. There were Ch:
very few public sales by the officers. prz
The land advertised by the Sheriff was s
not sold. The Probate Judge sold one Sto
tract in the case of Denson vs. Sanders the
of 70 acres to P. M. Denson fer $~>0. ten
