paper, water-marked with tho initials,
U. P. O. D.j in monogram. Tho card

A postal card is to be treated as a let

INCIDENTS OF SATURDAY.
Tho up-passcngcr train stopped at the
Russell Street dressing to allow visitors
to the festival to get out.
Among tho many visitors were largo
and respectable delegations from Branch
villo, Lewisvillc and Fort Motte.
A noisy squad, yclept band, butchered
soveral musical airs, us it preceded a
crowd of colored people, who wcro appa
rently in tho interest of Jj. Byas, tho as
pirant for Senatorial fume.
Soveral daubs on homespun, carricalu
ring tho nominee for tho Scnatorahip,
wero boruo at tho head of the Byas pro-?
cession. Ouo represented a gamo cock,
another a While nmn bowing to a 'negro |
over the ballot box'"before the election." '
Another, a negro at-tho'too of a white
man's boot "nfW tho oleetiou." And
yot another showing a black man at tho
bridlo of a donkey, with a white man at
tho hanimal's tail* Tho inscriptions
wero marked in a peculiar stylo of letor
ing, all of which we failed to discipher.
An alarm of nro created a wild stam
pede, and tho machines were promptly on
the spot. An old shanty, by somo inex
plicable means had taken fir?, but no
loss occurred, except to a few of tho ar
dent young men who ran away from tho
pic nie grounds.
Tho barbecue which, was furnished by
tho candidate for the Senate, and iho
noisy procession by the supporters of
Byas, did not, in tho slightest degree in-,
tcrforo -with tho pleasing ceremonies of
the laying of tho cornerstone. The col
ored pcoplo congregated in a portion of
tho town bo far removed from tho fair
grounds, that no interruption was expe
An ox-deputy constable (colored) was
indignant, for somo unknown reason, and
vented himself alter this wise. "Do man

corps of professors. Tho threo names
mentioned are a pillar of strength to any,

? AB ULL Y KILLED.
A bully named Brown, who lived in
Bichland, had annoyed a youth named
Howell Hays for sometime, and threat
ened his lifo. . Tho boy :for: fear loft the
neighborhood. Meeting his enemy after
ward, ho was dreadfully beaten, and

Brown, when tho former was on a deer
hunt. The man again advanced upon
him, but Hays checked him with two
loads of buck shot, that caused death.?
Hays surrendered himself.
Wo havo been handed several very
showy tickets reading " Orangeburg
County. For. Senator T. C. Andrews"
with a cut of tho Goddess of Justice hold
ing her scales. There has been a serious
(wo trust not an emiuous) oversight in
tho lady's outfit the bandage is removed
from her eyes, and sho is, frco to seo
which sido the Bcalca may turn. The
candidate has an opportunity if elected
of dealing a deathblow to tho most nofari >
oua schemes that are rampant at Colum

to urgo thejclaims of an oppressed Stato
abovo thoso of a party, and wo hopo his
best efforts will be exerted, to vindicate
the symbol of his ticket?Justice.
