Habeas Corpus.
On Monday, George Clark, the ne
gro boy who was put m jail a few days
ago for horse stealing in Spartanburg
County, was brought before Trial Jus
tices Reid and -Fair, on a writ of ha
beas corpus. and discharged.
It appears that the arrest warrant
was defective, that the proceedings
before the Trial Justie who commit
ted Clark were irregular, and that the
Trial Justice had no jurisdiction of the
case, the crime having been committed
in Spartanburg, and the stolen horse
not having been brought into this

first comet discovered during the pre

made by means of the new telescope
of the Warner Observatory, which is

Land Sales.
On Monday, saleday, the following
tracts of land were sold:
By the Judge of Probate-House and
lot, 4-10 acre, in town of Newberry,
bounded by lands of W. A. Cline and
others, sold to- Henry Wheeler for

A Battered Book Agent.
Last week a book agent who was in
town, heard that a member of the bar
had spoken of him as a "sucker," and
lhe very naturally felt aggrieved, the
proper term to apply to the average
book agent, being "leech," rather than
"sucker." When he met the attorney,
he refused to recognize his friendly
salutation, and otherwise insulted him.
There he made a mistake. He was
promptly invited out ; and though he
confessed that he was "not much on a
fight," he accepted the invitation, and
went. There's where he made the
second mistake. The two withdrew,
alone, to a secluded spot in a grove,
about haif a mile from the Court Hous,
and tried their bone and muscle. Dis
tance, toe to toe ; weapons, fists. At
the end of the third round, the b. a.
was thoroughly persuaded that he
could not stand up, on pine straw in
the presence of that particular attor
ney. He accordingly intimated that he
was not an india-rubber man, and ex
tended his hand, which was accepted.
He has pluck -and nerve, but he re
minds us of the words of the old far
mer who saw a small bull lock horns,
with a locomotive engine : "Little fel
low, I admire your pluck, but damn
your discretion."

A Sunday of Adventures.
Last Sunday will be long remember
ed at least by the parties concerned.
AU the following adventures occurred
in the same neighborhood :
1. A gentleman, starting out with
Us family, was surprised to find that
when he expected to see his wife seat
ed in his buggy, he saw her seated,
whether willing or unwilling, we do
not say, on the ground.
2. A certain pedagogue, with his
dulce, started to church, when sudden
ly the buggy seemed to have five.:
wheels, and investigation showed that
the tire of one wheel had run off; and
as they dismounted and started off
afoot, she remarked "What a come
3. Another, not a pedagogue, re
turning from church, was driving his
2.40 steed up to his full speed, when he
suddenly came to some frog houses
made in the road by playful children. t
The generous animal, desiring to save
the result of the children's* hard work,
suddenly stopped. He saved the frog
houses, but the girl, oh ! where was
she? You may guess, when told that t
from somewhere near the roadside, a
gentle voice was heard saying "Don't
tell anybody." We thought it was "a
come down."
4. - A certain young man, attempt
ing to mount his steed, felt as if some
stray meteor had come around his way
when suddenly grasping his uose he
found it smashed. It was but a gentle
toss of the gay animal's heal.

Sniffles Once Again.(
Like "Monsieur Tonson" I, Sniffles,
appear again. "All work and no play 1
makes Jack a dull boy," and not want- 6
ing tobe dull, or lose the least bit of C
my bright, crispy animation, I stole a
ay out of one of last weeks seven and i
visited Columbia. I like to go there. i
rhere is something good for Sniffles'
wholesome in that beautiful city. I ti
lave many appreciative friends there, 1
ellows who belong to 'Gideon's band,' 1a
md we have a jolly good time of it.
We don't have 'gooseand inguns,' but ~J
oysters, crabs, and tender loin steaks b
abound. These fellows are all sensible a
nd are provided with good wives-I
pity the poor fellow who is not blessed s
with a good wife, and weep great tears 1
!or one who is tied to a bad one. How l1
[ lean up to them-not the wives but
the fellows-and how delightful it is I
to drop in. I had just recovered from I
i pain, a sockdolager pain, a pain some- b
times read about, but one which few c
men have the pleasure (?) of experien
ring, a pain sharp, deep, penetrating, I
incisive, a pain which undulates under- 2
neath through fibre and muscle, a pain la
which hangs fire for a minute, only to
bite, burn and tear its victim with~ fresh J
pite. Just over it, my diaphragm felt b
ollapsed, and like a mnodern pocket c
book, or as it one of Tozer & Dial's
broad tired road engines had passed I
over It in an effort to quench its vital- 2
ity. I was not quenched however, and I
only needed filling, thereore the read- a
er will understand why Colunbia was
visited, and at the same time be glad I
to learn that Sniffles was filled, as like- 5
wise were the fellows-with astonish- a
A visit to the Secretary of State's I
office was in order. The Chief was ab- I
sent but the comfortable nest was pre- a
sided over by Mr. A. C. Jones, and an
other clerk, who illuminated all the re
eesses and revealed all of interest to be
seen. The trank oftheighting-stru1ck 0

old, stacks of papers, the original or
dinance of secession with the venera
ted name of Robert Moorman, together ~
with those of Joseph Caldwell, aud J.
P. Kinard, the new State Seal, and lots
of dust, the accumulatien of ycars,
comprise the objects of interest seen.
Crane is all right, and has not forgot
ten Newberry in the honors which
crowd him.
Saturday morning is a good time to
visit the market, and I make it a point
to go there with the man whose vittles1
I consume ; this is a good plan, and
worthy of imitation, as it enables one
to decide whethe.r it will be the proper
thing to dine with him or not. The
meats were fine and abundant, as were
the fish, oysters and crabs, and by the
way the crab supper the night before
might well admit of a paragraph, only
that it might cause a surfeit, and that
would be unfit you know; suffice it to
say it wasgood.1
Do you want cheap groceries? well,
go to the house of Lonrek & Lowrance
and ask for'Moore or Spearman, both
of Newberry, and if they don't make
your head swim, and your eyes rau1
water, no one else can-their prices
are astonishiugly low. Cross over the
street and see Duffle, who is looking
young again, and as lively as a cricket.
ButI stop, only intending at the start to
say tat I went tn Columbia. j
Wine Is a Mocker."
On Sunday night the Reverend
Luther Broaddus preached an interest
ing sermon on the text, "Wine is a
mocker, strong, drink is raging; and
whosoever is deceived thereby is not
wise." He said he was not there to
atter a tirade against intemperance or
to abuse and denounce those who drink
Lud sell whiskey. There are worse
nen in Newberry than the drunkard
>r the whiskey-seller. "The love of
noney is the root of all kinds of evil."
&nd while he has pity for the man
;vhose circumstances force him to sell
vhiskey, and for the man who is too
weak to resist the fascinations of the
vine cup, he has the profoundest con
:empt for the narrow little soul that
neasures the circumference of the
vorld by the circumference of a sil
rer dollar. Wine quickens the wits,
teightens the imagination, and for the
ime strengthens the intellectual pow
rs. No man who has a heart and
rain is altogether proof against its
The preacher said he did not intend
o give an array of statistics showing
he immense sums of money and the
-ast quantity of grain wasted and
quandered; he did not even know the
umber of bar-rooms in Newberry and
e did not care to know ; lie had no
aste for statistics of that kind. He
tended simply to talk about the sub
ect in a scriptural way. The words
f the text were written.thousands of
ears ago,. and since that time men
nd manners have greatly changed,
ut the text is up to the times as a fit
escription of the spirit and power of
trong drink.
Wine deceives men (1) by .causing
hem to believe that it has no fascina
[on for them; (2) by leading them to
verestimate their - powers of resis
,nce ; (3) by its stealthy and grad
al progress in fastening upon man's
ppetite ; (4) by coming'in the guise of
friend. Say what we may, wine has
een a benefactor as every physician
nows. But the man who is deceived
hereby is not wise ; in our blunt
umerican way of speaking, he is a

ectly outlined, was free from abuse,

anal accompaniments of sermons on
his subjeat ; and it was such as is cal
ulated to cause reflection among sen
ible men.
