The LowudcsviHc Prisoners.
The trial and conviction of these]
men fur the murder of Clayton S. Al-I
Jlen near Lowndesville, on the 4th ofj
December last, has beeu a matter of!
great interest to our people aud lias |
been thoroughly discussed in every
quarter of the county. In fact no
ease that lias ever beeu tried here has
elicited from our people greater inter';est.
Although ten men have been
Ijtistly convicted there are at large
still others who are more guilty if pos-!

I believed the prime mover and instigator
of the whole outrage is one
lthodes, a straggling Georgia negro,
who is now in jail. J?t is likely that
the law or a committee of citizens will
yet give him his dues..
On Monday after the conviction of
ten of the murderers the foreman j
wrote the following letter to General
McGowan, the senior counsel for the
lettish from the foreman of tiik
Gen. McOowax?Dear Sir: Before
leaving for home 1 drop you this note,
' to express to you, and tuovoung gentlej
men engaged "with you in defence of the
Lowndesville prisoners, my unqaliticd
admiration of your and their devotion to
the cause of justice and humanity. Your
nohle eiforts could elicit no other response
in the minds of right thinking peo- 1
, P1*'Whilst
discharging the defined duties
and obligations of a juror, 1 felt that my
duty was plain, and that duty I have discharged.
I would however cheerfully
join in a prayer to the Court for clemency,
hoping that it may see grounds for its
exercise. In this I feel assured that all
of those who sat with me on the jury '
would join. * Very respect fit I lv,

ABBEViLT.rc, S. C'. January 17, 1877.
Mu. J. M. Latimkk?Dear Sir: The
bearer of this, "Whitner Allen, a brother
of Capers Allen who was convicted as
one of tiie murderers of Clayton Allen, ,
has applied tonic in tho interest of his ,
brother, and while I know nothing as to ;
the character of Capers, and indeed noth- '
ing of the character of any of the unfor- 1
tunate men. 1 will s<iy that it was the '
conclusionoftheentirojurywho.se duty
it was to render the verdict, that we would
join with the people of your section and :
community, in-signing a petition for ex- j
eeutiivo clemency in behalf of any of
them, who in your judgment from* circumstances
known to you, I'*y be more ,
entitled to your consideration. Such circumstances*
as previous character, temper,
and conduct, and tho temptations to {
which they were subjected, Ac.
The jury thought the execution of a
number less than ton, would have an exemplary
cfloct quite as good, if not better
than tho execution of all. In this
view it would be fortunate if such circumstances
of mitigation could be found
in a number of them?and your people
would ii*k that the sentences of those
should be commuted. It ought to originate
with yoiu- people, and if so, the jury
will act with vou.

that they were ready to second

might make. The following are

II*. . V..,. * I....... ?i?. T..
lLi;?4fL mi . All
my judgment the Lowndesville prison'
ers were properly convicted. Willi an
oxperien. c of four years upon (lie liench,
and a practice of fifteen years at the liar,
Ijhave never heard evidence more convincing
to my mind, of a formed design
' to kill and murder. The prisoners had a I
fair trial before a jury of four whites and
, eight colored. My "duty has been discharged.
The prisoners have been sen- j
tended to be hung on the 20th of April
next, and, so far, I see no cause to justify
me in interfering with their execution.
I am verv respectfully,
, From the above our readers may
learn all that we know of the prisonera
since their conviction, and of their
chances of escaping the doom which
seems to be awaiting them. From
present indications we believe there is
little probability of the sentence of
{any one of then) being commuted.
I The only reason that has ever been
,Iurged for executive clemency is the
large numuer who nave wen convici|o*l.
If it had been possible the jury i
would not have convicted so many,
I but from the evidence and the law it
was impossible to convict a smaller
i number. Twelve 'were arraigned.
I One was not convicted because it was
1 not clearly proved that he was present
at the killing, though he was
[nearby; another was acquitted, not
that he was not as guilty as the rest,
but because of his age?13 years.
Death ot Mr. James If. Perrin.
'Ihis highly esteemed citizen died
of consumption at his residence in
this town on Sunday night last, in the
34th year of his age. The deceased
was a man of education aud culture,
and at one time contemplated the pursuit
of the law, having been
admitted to the practice of the profession
in the State of Kentucky.
Owing to his feeble /health however,
lie left his native State and came to
Abbeville soon after the war. when
lie first engaged in the mercantile
business in the house of Quarle9, Perriu
& Co. Subsequently and up to
the time of his death he was the junior
partner of the firm of Parker &
In his life his conduct and intercourse
with his fellow man reflected
I all the nobler traits of the christian
[gentleman, while his sterling worth
and purity of character won the esteem
and affectionate regard of all
whose privilege it was to know him.
He was of a retiring disposition and
only those who knew him well could
truly appreciate how good and true he
was. IJeing a consistent member of
the Methodist church, lie died in the
hope of a glorious immortality, leaving
no enemy behind him.
> Jn all the relations of life his genial j
and companionable nature shone with j
a superior excellence, but it was with-1
in the family circle as sou, husband
and father that his affectionate disposition
was ftiost conspicuously manifest.
A voumr wife, three little cliil
dren, siu aged and grief-stricken father
mourn his death, while many other
relatives revere his memory.
As an evidence of the high regard in
which he was held in this community,
we would mention, that all the business
houses in the town were closed,
and, on motion of a member of the
liar, Court was adjourned during the
funeral and burial services.
lie was connected with the Silver
Cornet Band, and the members acted
as pal I-bearers.
The impressive burial service of the
Methodist church was read by the
Rev. Mr. Wightman, in the hearing
of a large concourse of citizcus who
had assembled to pay tribute to the
memory of a good man. At the conclusion
of the services the remains
were taken to the Episcopal cemetery,
and in the presence of nearly every
citizen of the village, as the sun sank
behind the western hills all that was
mortal of the deceased was lowered iu
the grave.
Accidental Death.
On Sunday afternoon Mr. C. C.
Smith, aged 30 years, son of Capt.
Clias. Smith, of Cokesburv. met with
;? sudden death while riding on lior.sehaek.
His horse stumbled throwing
him in a gulley about seven feet deep
?the horse falling on him, immediately
crushing him to death. Mr. Smith
was riding alone, but was soon found
by a colored man, who at once called
Dr. F. K. Gary. When the negro
found M*. Smith the horse was still
mi his hack lying on the unfortunate
young man. J t is supposed that Mr.
Smith was instantly killed. An 111[juest
was held by Trial Justiec Grayilon,
and a verdict in accordance with
the above facts was rendered.
The genial nature and the exemplary
conduct of thedcceased'made him a
general favorite in the community
who deeply mourn for his death, l ie
was a member of the Methodist
Church and at the time of his death
was a Steward in the church, and
trave promise of a brilliant future.
The grief stricken-father has the
hearty sympathy of many friends under
this sad dispensation of Divine
Col. Robert McKay.
We had the pleasure of greeting in
our oltice on yesterday afternoon our
old friend "Uncle Dob," of the Orcenvillo

Hurrah for Greenwood.
The Special Agent, Capt. Perrin,
spent last week at Ninety-Six, Greenwood
and Hodges, collecting the
Hampton tax. lie.informs us that he
met with great encouragement, and j
was very successful, especially at
Greenwood where he says that his of?
tico'was thronged with an enthusiastic
crowd anxious to add deeds to
words. At that, point his oflice was
opened after two o'clock, and by 5
o clock he had accommodated ninetyfive
tax-payers, receiviugthat evening
$503. He continued to received contributions
even after he had closed his
ollice anif up to the very time of the
starting of the train which was to
carry him to his next appointment..
His receipts at Greenwood amounted
lo the handsome sum of $r,271.2"> from

Mr. W. S. Fruser, of tlmt superb paper,

is traveling in the interest of that
staunch Democratic journal which, he
says, "was born straightout." This I

r! A Memento of Love to the Memory of
i Clayton S. Allen
Who foil an 'innocent victim by the
hands of a diabolical set of conspira.
tors against the village of Lowndes'
viHe on Monday night Dec. 4. It is
a most crushing reality to his fond
parents, and those who loved him
1 most, to know ho was the martyred
victim against whom no envy or
malice was given ; but like an innocent
"Lamb traveling his own" green
pasture over, on his native heath
without spot or blame, wai ambushed
and sacrificed, thereby rescuing others
from a most cruel, heartless, and bloodcurdling
fate, and how the hearts of
those whose lives and property was on
j ly awaiting destruction, muse uow m
deep sorrow lor tlio loss of our noble
one whose precious blood flowed freely
in their midst, a ransom for their safety.
Had death in a natural form entered
the household and Jaid his wintry
withering hand on him we mourn
we would have felt, "God doeth all
things well" and bowed submissively
to his will, but oh! S3 hard under
. these trying circumstances to say. "It
is well," and feel a perfect resignation
to the mournful tragedy which has
blighted so many bright hopes. These
murderers would have- quaked in
shame and horror over the terrible
deed perpetrated, could they have
witnessed the anguish of those aged
parents', when hearing foot-steps approaching,
thinking their only sou, an
almost idolized treasure, was coming,
when instead, it was a messenger
bearing the heartrending intelligence
that Clayton was killed while
riding along unaware of danger. The
cruel volley poured forth and pierced
his head and body, and there in the
hard stony road, weltering in his own
precious blood, lay the comforting
"stall'" of his grief-stricken parents,
the loved brother of three fond! sisters
?one a widow who was especially an
object of tender care and deep sympathy
to him, and all can fully attest to
the faithful discharge ot his duty to
her and her little ones.
Had these cruel murderers have
searched the country over for a victim
that would make the deepest gloom in
one household and bo most universally
lamented we would say they had selected
well, for death had entered their
home scarce a year before "loosed the
silver cord, broke the golden bowl"
and took the eldest and first born son;
the idolized husband; the kind and
gentle father. Six mouths later the
"white winged" messenger entered
again and bore away a beautiful baby
on whose waxen brow two summers
j had scarcely set. IJeing a living image
of her deceased father, she was the
I lovely pet of grand parents, a "connecting
chain" of lost love and happiness
to her heart-broken mother.
She seemed to know the grief that
| filled the house with gloom and like a
lovely visitant from the "beautiful
shore," she petted and carressed each
one, pointed them, as it were, to heaven,
then took her flight to God, there
to await and welcome, "Claytie" her
pet Uncle. As a friend too much cannot
be said. Clayton's absence makes
truly an "aching void" none can ever
fill. The tearful eyes, the quivering
lips, the eager determination to seek
out anil bring to justice those wiio iiau
cast this dark gloom, showed too
plainly how his friends and comrades
in this our dearly bought Democracy,
loved and honored liiiu. In all the
meetings of the past campaign he was
among the first to join, although his
health was very feeble. He would
lir-e as it were from the verge of death
ami go, though his pule face and weak
form showed his inability to serve bis
country; but buoyed with bright
hopes of future deliverance from Judical
bondage, he shared with his comrades
the many successes of tho political
meetings and was ever the "centre
star" of true manhood and intrinsic
worth. The Lowndesville club, of
j which he was a loved member, felt
they had in him a true patriot, one
whoso noble heart beat in unison with
theirs, whose strong arm and lirm
baud never quailed, and whose manly
form had never made one retrograde
step from danger, and his merry laugh
and bright chcerfuljdisposition threw
a ray of sunshine in their midst.
We who have known Clayton from
his early boyhood days can trace
with memory's linger the bright pages
of his short life here and find
nothing to throw a snauow or shame
on his spotless charactcr; all regarded
him as one whose truthfulness, honesty,
and lirmness was almost without
parallel. Truth sat a bright diadem
on his brow, honesty placed her
matchless star therein, firmness lent
an additional lustre, and charity
threw her beautiful mantle around to
protect and show to the world his excellent
moraf qualities. He loved the
church, and most highly esteemed
God's people, and his seat was rarely
ever vacant there, his voice often mingled
in singing praises to God, and toI
day our hearts feel the deepest pain in
knowing that his voice is now hushed
and will never swell aji eatbly anthem
again. Darling one, we have
laid you in vour deep, dark, and silent
grave, but your precious memory
is hallowed and sacred to us. May
God in his great ruercy, help us to
bear this dark and mournful stroke,
which so suddenly blighted his and
our brightest earthly joys and withered
our most sauguine hopes.
