A Narrow Escape.
On Monday night November 16th,
a colored man by tne name of Robert
Summers was somewat badly maimed
en Mr. Jonn Easter! iu's place in the
Fork of Edi-to by another colored man
named William Carrion. It appears
that Summers had been indulging a
rather objectionable propensity of tak
ing cotton without the owners permis
Carrion at last determined that he
would bo on the look out for him. Ac
cordingly, on tho night mentioned, as
Summers was putting his hands into
the barn and pulling out cotton, Car
rion fired upon him.
Summers thereupon beat a hasty
retreat, forgetting however and leaving
two or three of his fingers in tho barn,
which wo think will never again bo
engaged iu such an unlawful business.

James Jonos Esq.
I It is with a sad heart that we chron
iclc the demise of the above named
esteemed citizen of Orangeburg,
Mr Jones came from England to New
York in 1821H In 1836 .he moved to
Orangeburg, where he has lived ever
since, leaving behind him nn enviable
record as a good citizen. His nature
was kind and charitable; his heart be
ing ever open to relievo the necessities
of the poor and afflicted. ; t?lUCh
During the war he was the Confed
erate soldiers friend, doing nil he
could for the relief of tho eick, nnd
contributing freely of his menus nnd
energies for the aid nnd encouragement
of those who were hnttling for the
"Lost Cause." In 1844" he wont to
Mix' o and iu fi ct under all. the
various changes of lifo has always
been found in the path of duty.
In religiou Mr Joneswas'n Catholic,
and in the exercise of his faith wa*
firm and consistent. Ho was buried
on Saturday November the *21si., Rev
Father Volge performing the solemn
services. At the time of his death he
had just passed his G9ih birthday.
To his l>o; caved rclutives we extend
our >--yu. put hies. We know it is ratu
ral to grieve for lost one*, but th?
thought of the final triumph of the j
good, should dry every tear, and re
in ve every pang.
On Sunday night about church hour
n pist'.d shot was heard iu the vicinity
of Bull & Scovills store. Mr. James
Cannon, our ever watchful and effi
cient town marshal, happening at the
time to be near tho Court house
square, immediately repaired to the
spot. As he got in front of Bull nnd
Scovills store, he saw the body of But
lcr Gholson lying on the ground in a
dying condition. His first object was
to arrest tho murderer. Upon going
up the street iu the direction of the
Railroad,he found several cjloredmeu
bringing Win. Auld, who committed
the foul deed, back to the scene of the
difficulty. But by this time a crowd
of colored people had gathered, and Mr
Cannon, who had heard several vio
lent threats, wisely advised, a different
course, und the guilty man was hur
ried to the jail.
It appears that Butler Gholson and
his wife were walking down Russell
street, when they saw William Auld
sitting on Bull & Scovills steps. Iu
sonic way a conversation sprung up
between them, and before many words
passed, Auld shot Gholson in the heart,
from which of course he died in a very
short time. Woman is said to have
been at the bottom of tho difficulty.
The murder caused great excitement.
Gholson bore a good charnctor as a
quiet nnd peaceable citizen.
Dr. Dukes and Dr. M. Salley per
formed n post-mortem examination.
The Coroners inquest was held ever
tho body on Monday morning, and
the'verdict oftlie Jury was in substance
that he camo to his death by a hall
fired from n pistol iu the hands of Win.
