Judge Carpenter stopped awhile at
Ridge Spring when the negroes made
their military display towards the
whites. The Judge remarked that
things looked very bad (or to this
affect). Judge Carpenter has been
here long enough to know who is res

man, we think he could fix a sentence
upon the offenders that would put a

Marshal Cannon put up for safe
keeping a' colored man named John
Grimes, who has been quite bold in the
last few days at his old trade. He had
visited Mr. Renneker's residence while
the family were at church, and was
alarmed before he succeeded in getting
any plunder. Mr. Cannon kept his
eye on him, and having heard' that a
watch had been stolen from a party in
town, he interviewed Grimes at the
depot on Monday night and by per
suation managed to get the watch from
him, and then put him in jail. Grimes
had other spoils. A coat he sold for
15 cents, and disposed also of a vest for
a mere trifle. Grimes is a penitentiary
bird, and is both hold and athletic.

Charleston sickened, and passed to her
final rest. The body was brought up
on the train of Friday night, and
borne upon the strong arms of eight
pall bearers. The coffin piled with loves
farewell offerings, was laid in the chan
cel of the church. Mr. Walker's
address touched the hearts of all, as
his venerable head bowed attesting his
affection. A pure flower is plucked
from the home garden; a vestal light
is out in the sanctuary; and to the
family we offer the sympathy that so
great a loss demands.
