CARD FROMI 3CNINCHI.
A letter directed to G. W. Shell.
-and signed by those claiming to be
his enemies, has been read to me. In
that letter the life of Mr. Shell is
threatened, unless he releases me by
the 26th day of June next; and he is
charged with having decoyed me into
jail and then of having betrayed mue.
This is to certify that I surrendered
and came to jail of my own free will;
that in no manner-neither directly or
* indirectly-did SIr. Shell influence'
me in the course I pursued. I did
speak to Mr. Shell as to the course I
should pursue and he declined to
give me any advice, saying he would
assume no responsibility in the matter.
1 have always regarded Mr. Shell
as one of my best friends, and I yet so
regard him. During my misfortune
he has kindly cared for my poor old
mother, for my wife and~ for my little
ones, and this, [ doubt not, the public
will agree with me, is to act the part
of a friend.
The letter written to Mr. Shell con
tains only false charges, so far as I
am conerned, and the writer of it is
*no friend of mine.

The Cities of our Dead.
-BY J. RETLAW LEINAD.
It is passingly strange, that a peo
p!e so generous and humane as those
of the South, are so indifferent con
cerning their cemeteries.
It seems that most Southern burial
places are regarded as spots rather to
be avoided and dreaded, than as
places to be cared for and loved._
I have often beheld, with dismay,
the little care which most people be
stowv upon the last resting place of
loved ones ; indeed, in traveling over
c,ur country one is almost filled with
horror by the dilapidated condition of
-The Cities of our Dead." Instead
of flowers and shrubbery, sedge and
brambles cover most of them. There,
where the g:round should be ex

beautiful parterres, the mole bur

I am at a loss to realize why it has

the very heart of a populous and
wealthy country, became des-titute of
a feuce. But the no rence law has

this is one of those counties, but if such
were the case the stock would not

The legislation of this independent
body was certainly unwise, to say the
least of it ; but, nevertheless, there
are hundreds of just such independent
little governments throughout our
State, and the decrees are going forth,
as it seems, unalterable as those of
the Medes and Persians, that to
whatever else the attention of the peo
ple may be directed, be it firmly re

Mackey in Washington.
His Opinion of the Carpet-Bagger Corbin.
WAsHrNGToN, May 18.-"Judge,"
said the Gazette man to-day to the iw
mortal and unique T. J. Mackey, of
South Carolina, who stumped the
State for Hayes and Hampton and ad
vocated the admission of Butler to the
Senate, "how is the ease of your friend
Corbin coming along ? Got that
toehing tribu.te you paid to Corbin
in the South Carolina convention in
1872? It might advance his in
terests some to have it repeated at
this trying hour.
"No, sir, I assure you I have no
copy of it with me but if anything I
can say will be of service to Corbin
you are welcome to it. I can repeat
the clauses in that speech which in
duced him to threaten my life. It
was in 1872 when he announced that
he could not indorse the administra
tion of Scott or the nomination of
Moses, on the ground that they were
corrupt. Sir, it inflamed me to in
dination when I knew that Corbin
was at that very time holding 13
remunerative offices in the State. So
I arose in the convention and said:
'Mr. President, the dwellers along the
Nile have a custom of erecting col
ums on its banks for the purpose of
indicating by the mud mark on these
shafts how high the river has risen,
for in that way they are enabled to
predict what the size of the harvests
will be, as in Egypt the whole charac
ter of the crops depends on the over
flow of the Nile. This column is
called a nilometer. Sir, D. T. Corbin
is the nilometer of South Oarolina pol
ities. You can always judge of the
mud tide of corruption by watching
the prosperity of the man. Some
despoilers, jeweled in the tears of a
betrayed and plundere d commonwealth,
are content to dally with their victim
and feel but the touch of her soft and
ensitive hand; but this monster, in
his greed and lust, clasps her naked
to his breast."
"How did this strike him ?'"
"Sir, he proceeded at once to buy a
revolver and I provided myself with a
hot.aun, which I did not use as I saw
bim ~next with a carpet-bag in his
band. lie is immensely rich and he
is a bigamist so notorious that I once
suggested in a speech that another

of domestic relations. HIe will never
be confirmed by the Senate for the
place of Chief Justice of Utah, much
as he is fitted for that locality in one
respect. I understand he threatens
to open a law offiee in Charleston but
I trust a protecting Providence will
induce him to change his mind."

Our Public Nelcols.
We have always liked our free
school system. Of course, we did
not approve the way it was man
aged a few years ago, when politi
eal power was in the hands of the
Radicals, and the money appropri
ated by law for education was ap
propriated by public officers to their
own use. Now, since the adniinis
tration has got into honest hands
the benefits of the system are being
developed. We have witnessed
within the past week some results,
in our midst, of free schools. The
two exhibitions of the colored
schools, that of the school at New
berry and that at Helena, have
proved unmistakably that the sys
tem is working well and that the
funds are being used properly.
The colored children, who are the
most benefitted by the free schools,
are learning rapidly. We are not
of the number who believe that a
little learning is a dangerous thing,
and that the colored people will be
any less valuable as laborers by be
ing able to read and write. On the
contrary they will become more
valuable to the community as their
minds are improved. It will give
them more pride of character, make
them more honest; they will be
better able to realize their true
status as citizens, to c.mprehend
their duties and discharge them
more thoroughly. As they become
more intelligent they will be less
susceptible to the influence of cor
rupt and designing men, who wish
to use them as tools to their own
advancement. Another good re snit
of the free school is this : the col
ored people must r-ecognize the fact
that the white people aie educating
them. The whites pay almost the
entire~ tax .to support the schools,
because they own near-ly all the
property. This proves to the blacks
that the whites are their friends,
and all the ravings of such men as
Wendell Phillipps, B3laine & Co.,

exemplified to them in this way.

motgages of the company, and cer

tiffs charge that the action of Gibbes
and other-s against the G. & C. R.
R., was collusive and fictitious, and
they p)ray that the Court may con

counsel in the railroad cases before
Chief Justice Waite, was held to
bail the 23d instant, at the instance
of the Attorney-General of the State,
in a civil suit pending against him
for recovery of $24,000. The ori
gin of the suit is as follows: In
1875 the State retained Corbin to
prosecute a claim against a phos
phate mining company for phos
phate royalty due the State. A
judgment for $28,000 was recovered
and Corbin paid iito the State
Treasury $200, retaining the bal
ance, which he claiied! as counsel
fees. The State purposes to allow
him only $3,000 and expenses,
which was the award of a referee,
as his fee, and the present suit
against him was instituted for $24,

to answer the suit and abide the
process of the court. His bonds

tifn of "State supremacy over the

After this veto, and a discussion of

two appropriation bills will be passed,
or current appropriations extended by
resolutiol, and that Congress will then
adjuurn. Addresses will be issued by
th- Congressional Coiinittees of both

will end, for the time, a memorable
contest, to be renewed whenever Con
gress shall meet again. The questions
are whether or not the people of the
different States shall hold elections
free from unnecessary and extra Con
stitutional interference, through troops
or civil officers, by the Federal Gov
ernthent, and whether or not intelli.

The "sober second thought" will bring
all reasonable people to the Democratic
side on both these questions.
The free coinage silver bill of Mr.
Warner received a black eye in the
House yesterday. It will be up again

their prospects of success. I think
the bill will be killed, and that with
out a veto.
There is a noticeable absence of
Democrats among the callers at the
White House since the veto by Mr.
Hayes of the Ladd bill. Those Dem
ocrats who had up to that time put
some faith in what was said to them
there have apparently learned better.
They don't believe in Hayes now any
more than Hlamlin or Chandler did
two years ago.

The Latest Invention in Useful
Within the last few years there has been c
expended a great deal of inventive thought
and genius upon what may properly be class
ed as household articles, the most noted re
suts of which are the production of the sew
ing machine, the wringer, the washing ma
chine, the carpet sweeper, &c. Almost every
week we chronicle the advent of some newp
invention by which the cares and labors of
housekeeping are lessened, and woman's
work made easier.
The newest thing to challenge our attention
and gladden the heart of the housekeeper, is, ~
what is called the NOYELTY BRUsH HOLD
ER, CARPET STRETCHER and SWEEPER, a
very simple contrivance designed to firmly
hold in position any kind of a brush or dust
er; having an extension handle that enables
one to wash or dust windows, walls or ceil
ings without the aid of a step ladder. That
is one of its conveniences, and it is also one
of the best carpet sweepers in the market,"
holding the brush firmly at an angle. It
cleans the carpet thoroughly. raises no dust,
and does not wear the carpet like the ordina- -.
ry broom or brush, and will outwear a half
dozen brooms. As a handle for the scrub
hing brushi it is the best device ever made,
no more kneeling on the floor, no more back
acers or sore fingers.
As a carpet stretcher alone it is worth its (
cost, as a carpet of any size can be laid even
ly without any of the labor and vexation
usually attending such work. It is strong,
simnpie, thoroughly made, cannot get out of
ordr, has no screws, lever or hinges, is comn
pact, cheap and durable.
It is manufactured by Brown & Co., Cin
cinnati, the well known manufacturers of
useful household articles, and is sold only by ..
their agents to housekeepers. Trhe real utili
