A Row IN t3ono.-There was a
considerable row in the colored school
at this place last week. There are a
few small boys, aged from twenty
five to thirty-fivo years, going to the
school, and some of them, not having
learned the rules of school, got into
a quarrel and disturbed the neighbor
hood wjth their angry and blasphe,
mous words. They had knives drawn,
and finally wo believe, came to blows,
and wound up in a general free fight
among6t them. Some of the parties
came to Trial Justice Taylor for a
warrant, but did not succeed in
obtaining one. The teacher Wur
ran Jenkins, colored, was with
the party who applied to the
Trial Justice for a warrant, and fron
the hilarious manner in which he
gave the Justice an account of the
origin of the difficulty, we judge he
thought it a capital joke, and nothing
worth the serious consideration of
teacher or peace officers of the County,
in fact we are told hat he advised the
"boys" to fight it out and stop quar
reling so much. If this be true, it
shows him utterly unfit for the ros
ponsible position Qf teacher, and he
should be promptly looked after by
the school officers of the district, and
if it can be established that he used
such language to the belligerent
"boys," .the County Board of Exam
iners should promptly revoko his cer,
tificate of qualification, and let the
Trustees employ a teacher who will
keep order in the school, and set
good examples before his scholars.
He has on his roll, we learn, ninety
odd scholars, with over eighty attend.

out of the public funds for his services,
and the Trnstces should see that he
performs his duty. We have heard
the scholars cursing and quarreling
on the streets, and from these inci

or restraint upon the scholars attend.

John Uuragoss, colored, and -Mc.
Carter', w hite, t wo revenue striker s,
got into a quarrel about a pint bottle
last week. They finally came to
blows. Cuffee, it seems, was getting
the best of it, when McCarter's motheri
came to his assistance and knocked
the negro dowh three times, by blows
on the head with ai hoc. The negro
ran afteri the t hird lick over the head,
but tho old woman pursued and gave
him several blowd on the back as he
ran. The negro pretended to be dy,

but weo learn that his condition wvas at
no time considered precarious. Of
course, all the parties camne to town
for warrants as soon as the fight en
ded, each claiming that they were in
the right and that the other was in
the wrong. Neither party procured a
warrant, trial Justice Taylor wisely
