Colored women, dressed partly in
men and partly in women's attire, are
preaching in the neighborhood of
Lewiaville, and the most shameless
scenes are enacted under their preach
ing under the excuse of religion.
It was reported on the streets last
Saturday evening that Gco. Boliver
said he intended to shoot a certain
man on sight. The idea, lie would
shoot a glass of iagcr every lime it is
sot up, but he don't take much stock
in man shooting.
W. R. Wallace, a colored Demo
crat, was turned out of the Baptist
Church located on the Legaro place
on the Bull Swamp road and his com
mission as travelling agcut of the
Sunday School taken from him.
Being a Democrat was his only

John H. Livingston has his open eye
on the U. S. Marshalship in the place
of Wallace; and Geo. Boliver wants
the clerkship of the U. S. Court.
Du. J. G. Wannamaker is pleased

The Orangkburg Crew.?The Co
lumbia Register says: "There is a
lively mob up in Columbia just now
representing the Orangeburg Radical
crew who are contesting the seats of
the ofliccr8 elected by t he Democrats
of that county. TaTt is among them.
Then there is Elliott and some fellow
with four eyes, and one game-legged
fellow with one eye. Elliott, Scott's
pet, is the most genteel and respecta
ble looking member of the whole
crowd, and God knows he looks bad
enough and cast a dark enough shad
ow over everything he touches or
comes in contact with."
Wk learn that Mr. Wm. j. Robin
son of Charleston has purchased the
valuable piece of property near the
Railroad known as the Legaro place
nod that he proposes to make Orange
burg bis future home. Mr- Robinson
is a brother iu-law of Rev. O. A.
Darby, the pastor of the Methodist!
Church, and is a gentleman of enter
prise and indomitable energy?just
the class of citizens we want. He is
quite an accession to our community
and we welcome himself and family lo
our midst with the hope thai success
may crown his efforts among us and
that his new home and friends may be
as dear as the old.

Not long since wo performed the
melancholy duty of recording the,
sudden death of a dear little daughter
of Mr. J. D. Rhoad, of Branchville,
and now we announce with equal
sadness that of a lovely little girl of
Mr. A. F. H. Dukes which occurred
on the morning of the 30th October
last. Few events touch the tender
cords of the heart with more grief
than the loss of a dear one. but that |
of a sweet little child just budding
into youth yields a sadness which
they who feel it only know. Wo
mourn, yet know that the loved ones
are angels of light?ministering
Spirits, perhaps, presiding over our
own lives to bring tie nearer the Eter- j
It is with regret we announce the I
death of Mr. D. W. Snell which oc-1
curred at the residence of his son-in-1
law Dr. A. S. Dukes on Saturday '
morning a week ago. Mr. Snell be
longed to a family whose energy,
courage, firmness and high moral tone
made much of the history of the sec
tion in which he lived and none of
them contributed more; largely to its
characteristics than he did. His kind"
ness gave aid to the needy, his geni
al disposition was a source of pleas
ure lo his friends and his Christian
integrity gave nsstuance to every one
who caino iu contact with him. His
death is indeed a loss lo his county
as well as to his immediate friends
and family because of the slerling
worth of his character. We extend
our waimest sympathies to the be
reaved family and alllictcd fitends.

Tribute of Respect,
Wuereas, in the inscrutable wis

pleased Him "who doctb all things
well," to remove from the sphere of
