LETTER FROM CHESTER. Chester, May 13, 1878. At the meeting of the Building and Loan J Association of Chester, on last Monday even- ; iug, the report of the Committee, submitted at a previous meeting, in reference to a plan for winding up the Association, was adopted. The main features of this plan were given in a previous correspondence. After its adoption, the members were not slow in availing themselves of its advantages. Eighty-seven shares of unredeemed Btock were sold at $60 per share. At every monthly meeting, unredeemed shares will, doubtless, be sold until the eutire amount has been taken up. Mem" ' * ? l - i 1 Ders or tne .Association, who im?? UUHUntu | money upon their stock, will find it to their interest to return the amounts borrowed, less the value of their stock. Iu this way they can stop the high rate of interest now paid by them. The adoption of the winding up < scheme will lead to the circulation of a considerable amount of money that has heretofore been locked up. A trial of an amusing character was held before our Town Council on last Tuesday afterndon. In the absence of John L. Agurs, Esq., In^endant, J. J. Hemphill, Esq., War- i den, presided. Two negro women, who had been seen fighting by the Chief of Police, and by him separated, appeared, and each gave her account of the affair. Their testimony was more ludicrous than elegant. When men disagree and fight, a woman is generally at the bottom of the trouble ; so when women fall out, and fly at each other's throats, a man generally occasions the misunderstandf ing. So it was in the present case. At the j .- close of the testimony, which was listened to with amusement by a considerable number of persons, the room was cleared, and the Council remained to decide upon the disposition of i the case. Their decision was that a fine of i three dollars be imposed upon one woman, and one dollar and fifty cents upon the other. 1 At a late meeting of the Democratic Club of Torbit's Mill, the following officers were < elected: J. H. McDaniel, President; Israel i Hood, Vice-President; James Hamilton, Secretary, and Daniel Dunlap, Treasurer. Reso- i Humntnn'i) administration. ! X U blUUO CUUUlOiug w ? , were adopted. < Halseliville Club recently reorganized by the election of Alexander Wise, President; J. S. McLure, Vice-President, and J. C. McAfee, Secretary. The primary election plan of makiug nominations was discussed, but no determination was reached. A decision of this perplexing question will be made at the next meeting. The delegates elected to represent Baton Rouge Club in the Democratic County Convention, to meet at this place, on the 1st Mon? day in June, are H. C. Brawley, T. T. Cassels and William McCallura, Sr. They were ! instructed to vote for the primary election i plan of making nominations. The officers of j the Baton Rouge Club are Major J. W. Wilks, President; Dr. William McCallum i and J. W. Wilks, Jr., Vice-Presidents, and Dr. James McCallum, Secretary. i Joe Ford, an escaped convict from the penitentiary, made bis appearance upon the scene of his former exploits, on last Tuesday. Information of his return having reached Mr. i I. N. Hyatt and Mr. Brown McFadden, they went to the house where his wife was living, 1 knowing that the escaped couviot was there, i He very soon became aware of their presence, i and, to avoid capture, took his departure from the house, with all possible rapidity. They were armed with shot guns, which they bred < at the flying convict, but without success, i Ford is a desperate character, and is quite a < terror to the Landsford community. i The children aud teachers of the different i Sunday Schools of this place, with their in- ] vited friends, spent Thursday very pieasanny at Rich Hill. The picnic had been the priu- | cipal subject of conversation for several days, | and expectation was on tip-toe. The first i train left for Rich Hill at 7 o'clock, filled with happy juveuiles, and uo less happy old i folk. The secoud traiu took its departure at ( 9 o'clock, for the same destination, and crowd- < ed in the same way with delighted children i and their older friends. The ride was greatly enjoyed, and iu due time the end of their i journey was reached. Near the railway terminus was a large and beautiful grove, to which the gay aud festive picnicere directed their steps. There they passed the day in the enjoyment of such pleasures as suited various ages and inclinations. From the branches of trees hung swings, which the smaller children kept in continual motion. Games were played, aud, of course, there was an abundance of sweet talk, and "looking into eyes that spake again." Ice-water and lera onade flowed in one incessaut stream. The elder ladies, not concerned about themselves, but with minds bent upon the happiness of others, directed their energies toward preparing the eatables. When the dinner hour arrived, there was a general readiness to participate in the feast. The tables, whieh were arranged in the form of a square, were filled with all kinds of good things, which were enjoyed to the extreme of human capability. After dinner, it was not a great while before the first train left, bringing home the Sundayschool children and their friends. The sec oud traiu arrived here about 6 o'clock, filled to its utmost capacity, with the rest of the pleasure-seekers. The picnic was a great success. Memorial Day was impressively observed at this place. Business was suspended, aud there was a general participation in the memorial exercises. A procession, composed of the Cornet Band, the Lee Light Infantry, ladies, gentlemeu and children in carriages and wagons, and the Chester Light Dragoons, in the order named, moved at 4 o'clock from the Presbyterian Church, under the command of Col. E. T. Atkinson as Chief Marshal, with Col. J. J. Hemphill and Col. Fred. Walker as assistant Marshals, in the direction of Evergreen Cemetery. Arriving there, the ' !?-J oto r\r) f A 1 lot OO t A crowu BSJCIUUICU aiU'JUU LUC own\i w uei,<.u au address from the orator of the occasion, Maj. S. P. Hamilton. The Band dispensed sweet music, and Rev. Mr. Trenholm made a beautiful prayer before the delivery of the address. The orator spoke of the distinguished services of Stonewall Jackson, and gave a touching description of bis death. He spoke of the effect of the observance of memorial days, which was to keep alive in our hearts the spirit of freemen. At the close of the address the ladies, assisted by their gentlemen friends, strewed flowers upon the graves of our Confederate dead. The graves of the Union dead were also remembered in the dis- j tribution of floral offerings. Thus began and ended another memorial celebration in Ches- 1 ter. May the beautiful custom be continued ; until the end of time. The friends of the Chester and Lenoir Railroad Company at this place were pleased j with the result of the trial of the cases before the United States Circuit Court at j Charleston, last week, in which the question of the validity of the York county bonds was involved. Their validity was settled beyond < any further doubt, by the decision of Judge Bond. These bonds have passed through the crucible of legal examination, and have stood . the test. No apprehensions need now be entertained in regard to buying them. Chester county bouds stand upon the same sure footing. At the Blackstocks Democratic Club, on Friday, the plan of making nominations by primary elections was adopted. Lowrysville Club, at their last meeting, also decided upon having primary elections. Mrs. Agurs, the mother of our esteemed townsman, Capt. J. L. Agurs, departed this life on Thursday, at her residence, in the vicinity of Rich Hill. She was buried on Friday. The Democratic Club of Rich Hill, at their meeting on Saturday, resolved upon the adoption of the primary election plan o making nominations. The Landsford Club opposed primarj elections, and elected Joseph Nunnery, \V W. Jordan and C. W. McFadden delegate; to the County Convention. A meeting of the Rossville Democratic Club was held on Saturday. Mr. Samue Anderson was elected President. The name! of the other officers I did not hear. The question of primary elections was discussed but no action was takeo. Qui. STATE SUNDAY-SCHOOL CONVENTION. A quorum of the committee appointed tc get up a State Sunday School Convention met in Columbia, on Friday last, and agreec on the following points: There will be a convention this year. The time and place to be selected hereafter. The programme will be published at an early day The representation will be the same from each county as in both Houses of the Genera! Assembly. A chairman is appointed in each county whose duty shall be, where there are no couu ty conventions in working order, to call a committee, consisting of one representative man from each of the leading Protestanl churches, which committee shall have fuli power to appoint delegates to the State Con veDtion. It is desired that the country schools be well represented in these appointments i The committee will see that efficient ?unaay school workers are appointed, and such as will attend the convention. Should any of the chairmen appointed re fuse to serve, or a mistake be made in the name, so that it cannot be ascertained who ie meant, some person interested will pleast write at once to the chairman of the commit tee. County conventions already formed, or formed hereafter, will appoint or elect dele gates. No delegates from special schools or organ izations will be regular. The chairmen of counties will get up sta tistics, stating number of schools, teachers aud officers, adult scholars, and children, Also, other statijtical information will be thankfully received. The committee would urge the importance of county conventions. They would also ask that all Sunday School workers, male and female, would give their influence in getting up a convention that shall be an honor to our State, and greatly promote the cause of Sunday schools throughout her borders. The following named persons were appointed chairmeu in this part of the State York?J. Ed. Jeffreys; Chester?Giles J Patterson; Lancaster?John \V. Twitty rT-:? ? W W 'Winknlann ftnartftnhnr'ir?

Soon after the marriage of Mr. Roberl Sothern, a handsome but wild young fellow to Miss Kate Hamhrick, a ball or party was given at the dwelling of her father, Mr. Ham brick, in the fall of 1876, in Pickens county Ga. All the belles and beaux of the neigh borhood were invited and attended. Among the number was a beautiful young woman by the name of Narcissa Cowart. She, it seems was one of these handsome country girls who knowing her charms, delighted in making con quests of men, but never dreaming that harm would in any way result. Gay and light hearted, she pursued the merry dance from early eve until the hour of miduight. At that fatal hour she danced her last time with Mr. Sothern. Kate, his wife, it appears had become jealous of the beautiful Narcissa, and early in the evening informed her husband that he must not dance with Miss Cowart oi speak to her during the night. To this, il seems, he assented ; but at 12 o'clock, tc the astonishment of Mrs. Sothern, she beheld Miss Narcissa Cowart upon the floor dancing with her husband. She calmly walked up tc her husband and informed him that he had promised to dance that set with her. He re inonstrated, but she persisted. * 1 ' thnf f U n f IDA mora /la, AI leugui, UUUlUg moi. Lilt mu I. ti t uu termined to daoce through the set, the jeal :>us young wife turned and quietly walker ratside to her father aud demanded the loar i)f his knife. Her father inquired for what purpose she wanted it. She replied, "To cut e tooth-brush." Reminding her that it was rather late to be cutting tooth-brushes, he re luctantly handed her his large pocket-knife. Returning to the dance room she found thai the dance was over. Watching with frenzied eye, she soon espied the object of her jeal ous rage alone, danciug across the room Seizing her by the shoulder with one hand she exclaimed, "You have danced enough,' and brandishing the kuife over her own shoulder, she plunged it deep into the girl's neck. The warm blood shot from the wound to a wall five feet distant. Still anothei blow was dealt, and the sharp kuife penetra ted deep into the left breast. A third blow was given as the girl fell, and she lay dead oc the floor. Confusion and amazement were never great er. Some one asked to know who was the man that struck that woman. Mrs. Sotherr exclaimed firmly, T am the man that did it!" The excited people rushed to the door; and said that no one should pass. Sotheri at once took his wife by the arm and said "Gentlemen, I am going to leave this house and take ray wife." His remarks were madt emphatic by the exhibition of a dangerou; looking pistol in his hand. The people al lowed him to pass. Sothern and his wifi made good their escape, and though Mis: Cowart's family offered a reward of 8250 foi their arrest, aud the Governor added 8150, f year elapsed before any tidings were mad< public of the fugitives. Then, in January they were found in Franklin county, Nortf Carolina. The history of their escape ani capture is very romantic, and they were con sidering the propriety of returniug and giv ing themselves over to the law when arrest ed. At the time of her capture, in Jauuarj last, Mrs. Sothern had her first child in hei arms. The whole family were placed in Pickeni jail, together with two or three others en gaged in the affair. Last week at Pickem County Superior Court, the case against Kat< Sothern was takeu up for trial, Judge Georgt N. Lesier presiding. The case occupied foui days in trial. Every particle of evidencf possible on either side was brought out, anc every legal point was hotly contested. Aftei an exhaustive trial, on Saturday, the 28th the young bride of a year ago was founc guiky of murder and was sentenced to b< hanged on the 21st of June. The womar held her child in her arras throughout th< trial. When sentence was pronounced, sh< was completely overcome. A motion for ? new trial was made, and will be heard oi Monday, the 13th iustaut. It is more thar probable that the case will reach the Su preme Court.?Atlanta Constitution, May 3.

' Many persons in York, Union and Chester I counties, have pleasant recollections of the genial, warm-hearted, enthusiastic subject of this sketch. He was born 6th January, 1850, and died in Victoria, Texas, on the 11th of April, 1878. He gracb 5 uated at the State University after the war. He ! took a law course there, and was considered by the faculty, as one of the most promising of the ' class. His fellow-students loved him and re3 spected him. In the home of his adoption, he I was working vigorously in his profession and church, discharging faithfully the duties of the ? citizen, the neighbor and husband. He was an , Elder in the Presbyterian Church of St. Mary's, > and he both merited and received the commendations of the whole church. Duty was the watch5 word of his life?the incentive to continuous and - cheerful labor. His last work was to build a ? house for teaching and preaching purposes; and his aim, during his last illness, was to organize a i Sunday School its soon as he recovered. Loved r and respected from boyhood, by all who knew i him, carrying about with him, at all times, a t cheerful and happy heart, leaving the world bet' ter because ho lived in it for a few short yearn; , thus passed away J. RICHARD LYNN. "When j a boy, he always sought the society of the good i and cultured. He aimed high. His life, short as 1 it was, was successful. His death was calm and - peaceful.
