There occured in the neighboring county of

On Christmas night a house situated five miles
ircm Appling Courthouse, the countv aito of
Columbia County, and occupied by a Mr. Gabriel
Martin and two grown sisters, was burned to
the ground and its three occupants consumod
in the flames. The neighbors ai rived too late
to save the bodies from the hie, but it i? gene?
rally believed that the house was first entered
by negroes, tho threo persons murdered, and
the premises set on fire to destroy all evidences
of the crime. Mr. Martiu was supposed to have
hada good deal of money concealed on the
place, and this furnishes the true key to tho
whole transaction. It is scarcely probable
that three grown persons would sleep so soundly
as to be burned alive in the house without a
single one escaping.

Thc "Rubber" Game-The Alerts Again
Victorious-A Cold Time-Something
About tho Pastime-A Cool Day-A Cool
Reception.
SAVANNAH, December 23,13G8.-Thc third or
"rubber,1' and probably the last Rame tbat
will bo played between the Alert Base Ball
Club of Charleston aud tho Forest City Club
of Savannah, took place iu this city to-day.
As may bc remembered by your readers, thc
Alerts were organized in May, 18G7. On tho
4th of July of that year they responded to a
friendly challenge to meet their picsent op?
ponents, but lacking tho needful skill and ex?
perience with ball and bat to achieve success,
on that occasion fitUoJ. Subsequently on tho
7;h of September, thc return match was play?
ed in the City of Charleston, when they showed
thc rc3ult of ambition* training by bearing
away the prize. Tho present game was lor the
purposo of determining still further the claim
of tho respective clubs to superiority, and al?
though playing under very adverso circum?
stances, tho Alerts again exhibited those ad
mir i ble qualities which at the beginning pro?
mised so much in favor of ibo now nati-nal
pastime.
Tho gamo is an institution peculiar to
Amer! a. England taught us yachting, gave
us lessons in horso racing, and can beat us at
cricket; but when it com 3S to haudling a two
and-a-hall inch ball, with bat in hand, getting
over three hundred and sixty feet or ground
while the aforesaid ball is "0:1 thc Uv,'* catch
inT "redbot plungers, chasing "daisycutters,4
and all that sort of thing, Young America eau
outwbip all creation.
Evary school boy remembers thc old gnuie
of "round ball,' nnd bow at recess or on his
way borne tho favorito spot was soucrlit, and
sometimes horns wero s.>cnt in tho iun')cent
rivalry of skill and muscle. The present same
is not dis-iim?ar, except in thc fact that
it has been systematized, regulated by
fixed rules, calls for a higher decree of
art if not of science, and requires thc
development of peculiar physical traits.
According as thoso qualities are possessed by
the player, be takes rank in the organization
of tho club. Tho good "pitcher," he who
throws the ball to thc batsman, rrust for in?
stance bo strong of r.rm, adroit in so Wisting
the ball as to deceive tho eye, and exercise
the keenest judgment in discovering thc weak
points of his adversa.y. The "catshcr" must
bc quick as lightuiug, with fingers that clutch
like the claws; of a crab, and legs that will
corkscrew themselves into any sbapo the
emergency may require. And, so every a No.
1 player must have certain peculiarities, be?
sides thc agility, wind and strength which arc
c mmon to all. These go to make up tho sum
of success, and give corresponding rank to
thai club which combinos* them in tho largest
and most diversified array.
It has been estimated that there are not less
than eleven thousand of those organizations ia
tho L'uitod States. In New England especially
thero is scarcely a village that cannot boa-t of
its half dozen, while in and around New York
thero aro no outdoor pastimes which in their
season draw BO many specta-ort:. of both sexes,
as these semi-Olympic enjoyment?. Enough,
however, by way or introduction. It has only
been said because lbw porsous in the -.outh a;o
aware of tho interest which attaches to every
match game played, especially as on an occa?
sion liko the present, where the "ballistic"
reputation of two citic3 was concerned.
lt has bo3n already rem irked that the time
was not propitious. Had you been on thc
steamer en roule to Savannah, you would have
realized ic before getting literally "half-seas
over." Wc left Accommodation wharf at ten
A. M., and from that timo un!U four o'clock
the next morning, were plunging through thc
coldost air and water that ever preceded &
Southern Christmas. In all re pects, however,
it was a-n-ico clay, and thc young men retain?
ed their enthusiasm better than could have
been expected under tho shivering circum?
stances. Their spirits only congoalod on land"
ing, to find no one in wailing to receive thc
guests, and in mournful procession they sought
the noaiost hoiel. Sunrise was ushered Iii
with a chorus of toois from tin horns that
mido ono imagine Gabriel was practicing an
overt tire for his hst trump; and later in thc
day Savannah was alive with tho sama peram?
bulating congregation you probably saw in the
"City by the Sea." I need not describe it.
A little before high noon, a committee from
ibo Forest City Club waited apon tho Alerts
at their hotel with an omnibus, and thc picked
nine wero convoyed to tho ground selecto 1 for
play. This was an admirable spot in thc rear
of that pride ol our sister city-thc park.
Gamo was called at twelve o'clock, and tho
Alerts having won the toss took "thc field."
It will be unnecessary to occupy space with
a detailed description of the progress of the
game, because few besides "ballists" would
understand or appreciate them, and thc "bal!
ists"' themselves will learn all they wish to
know on reading thcoffi'Mal report of thc scorer.
The general remark, however, may be made that
tho playing on both pides was not up to thc
standard. Whether it was thc weather which
was freezing cold, or tho absence of a great au?
dience-there were only about three hundred
spectators present-or the "chaffin?" of thc
crowd, or misunderstanding anions tho mem?
bers of the Forest City club, or some other
cause not to be explained, others must deter?
mine; hut tho Alorts felt that under more auspi?
cious circumstances they could do even better
than carry away the prizes which they did. Of
these, Eason won a pair of professional shoes,
for making thc most runs, and Heslin won tho
belt for the most "fly-catchcs.'' Tho club il
self won a handsome book for general playing.
Whenlhe gamo was concluded, tho Alerts
retired. There was no speech-making, and
except from tho citizens,-who are always alive
to tho presence of strangers, there was no
interchange of hospitality. I learn, inform?
ally, that tiie Forest City Club will bc broken
up, and presume that internal dissentions
amout; its members may have had something
to do with tho general "coolness" ot the day.
Thc Alerts leave here in tiie morning at six
o'clock.

TUE ABBEVILLE ABItEST.s. ay
[FKoai ou?t orra c mnEsroxDENT.] \
CoLUjrnit, December 2-3.-Chief Constable
Hubbard, accompanied by live or six of his
deputies, summoned from several counties,
wcut to Abbeville C. H. a few days ago. Tho
circus was thereon thc 23d inst., and brought
together a large crowd, nnd on that day the
said constables arrested Mr. Charles N. Den?
dy, a native of Abbeville, charged willi being
implicated in the murder of James Martin,
late member of thc South Carolina Legislature.
On Thursday morning, I he 21th, this constab?
ulary force lclt Abberille, having Mr. Dendy in
custody, and on Ibo (rain from tho Courthouse
to Hodges' Station they arrested Mr. J.
Fletcher Hodges, son of General George
Hodges, for alleged complicity in the murder
of B. F. Randolph. Both these- gentlemen
were taken to Columbia, on Thursday, by
Deputy Constable Schwartz. Cliiel Constable
Hubbard, with tho remainder of his posse, re?
turned on Friday to Columbia, having in the:r
charge a negro, Ben Thomson, arrested also
for complicity in tho Martin murder.
Colonel R. A. Fair, of tho law firm of Thom?
son & Fair, Abbeville, arrived iu Columbia
Friday evening, for thc purpose, wc learn, ol
making application before one of the Judges
for Hie release ol'these pr.soncrs upon bail.
We have not yet heard before which Judge
the application will be made, but prc&um i .'
will be Judge Boozer, as !'?*. lives nearer Co
lumbia than any of thc others. The arrest,
though in form moro iu accordance with thc
recognized procedure, in reaUty is not a whit
more legal than is thc case of Colonel D. Wyatt
Aiken some time since. The entire commu?
nity of Abbeville is dearin regard to thc in?
nocence of these young gentlemen, both of
wiiom arc well known. Neither, wc arc told, will
find tho slightest difficulty in proving Hat ho
had no connection whatever with tho crime
imputed to him. Thom aro some bad men in
Abbeville District, as there are in almost every
commuuity; and no ono would be more re?
joiced lo see thc.guilty brought to justice than
the substantial, peace-loviug, law-abiding citi?
zens of Abbeville. I have, during the past
week, had abundant opportunities to ascertain
the sentiment of the people of that county in
regaid to these outrages, and I have no hesita?
tion in saying that amore quiet, hospitable,
aye, gentlemanly community it would bc diffi?
cult to find anywhere in tho Un iou.
A Submarine Earthquake-Description
of tin on im un by thc Captain of thc
Hark liuphrosyne.
Tho London News gives particulars of thc
recent submarine earthquake in tho Atlantic
Capt. Christie, of thc bark Euphrosyne,re?
lates that when his vessel was in latitude about
IC 10 south, and longitude 1 west, the sky sud?
denly became overcast with dense black-look?
ing clouds, and in ill directions was heard a
noiso resembling distant cann mading, while
thc sea became tossed aud confused. To these
signs of agitation ano.her w.is ad led of pe?
culiar significance. The compass vibrated
largely, and almost lost iU polarity-a sure
sign that a terrestrial disturbance of great ex?
tent and violence was in progress. Several
large meteors bhot ont Irom the heavens-a
phenomenon which can hardly bo assOcatcd
with tho occurrence of submariuc disturb?
ance, unless wo suppose that burning matter
had been projected from sonio submarine
volcano, ?iud that the flung masses were mis?
taken by Captain Christie for meteoric bodies.
Tho fish jiunped out of I he sea and struck
against the sides of the ship, and the trem?
bling of i he vessel could oe distinctly felt a i
well as heard. Both thc last named phenome?
na point so distinctly to submarine action as
to remove all doubt which might be suggested
by the appearance ol' meteors. Tue intense
heat of the matter thrown ont in submarino
convulsions invariably drive tho fish aw. y from
the neighborhood, killing largo qualities of
those which happen to be near the outlet from
which the burning matter is being erupted.
Captain Christie relates that the volcanic ac?
tion of tho sci continued dining the night
until snurwe, when thc weather became clear
and settled.
THE STATIC AND OUJl RAILROAD
Sl'STEM.
TO THE ED1101X OF THE Nli?YS.
I have read, with groat caro, your several
editorials in favor of the State granting farther
aid to thc present stockholders of the Savan?
nah and Charleston Railroad, and I must con
' fess that I have failed to see an j- claim that
they have to any further contribution from the
already heavily to .ted citizeus of the city cf
Charleston and thc rest of tho State.
I wili h:rc remark that at least one-half of
the debt due by the city of Charleston and tho
Stato of South Carolina has been incurred by
subscribing to railroads, and as a tax-payer, I
must utter my protest against any further In?
crease of even a contingent liability of thc tax
payers to further the private interests of indi?
viduals.
What are thc fac'-s i:i regard to thc Savan?
nah and Charleston Riilroai? Tho second
mortgage bonds of tho road were one ot tho
many iavontc investments ot parties iu Ute
city, who during the war had large amounts of
Coiifedcrate mono? at their disposal. At the
end of tho war the road was sold to pay judg?
ments obtained against ir. The second mort?
gage bondholders combined and bought in tho
road for a small sum to save their second
mortgage bonds, and obtained thc passage of
an act by tho Legislators of the State, to or?
ganize ai tho Savaunah and Charleston Rail?
road Company. They have had possession of
the road for liircc years, and during that time
they have neilhor advanced tho money anio., g
themselves to finish .tho road, nor have Uley
had thc management or tact to get other capi?
talists to join them. Some of them at least
arc liirse capitalists, and a subscription
of from $10,003 to $20,01)0 from each would
have enabled them, with a judicious manage?
ment of their credit, to havo lon;; Siuce finish?
ed the r"ad to Savannah, They have done no?
thing of tho kind, but have whined through
the newspapers, asking thc Stato to como tor
ward and help them. It is thc cid story of
Hercules and tho wagoner. Mow, Mr. Editor.
I am tired of all this, and if the respectable
gentlemen and capitalists who bough', in the
Savaunah Railroad, to save their Investments
mr'le in Confederate money, cannot finish thc
mau., let it be sold by the State for what it is
worth to partios who aro able and willing to
fiuisli it to Savannah.
There are a great many ol' us who invested
Confederate money that would bc glad if thc
State would only como forward and give us as?
sistance te raise more capital to make such in?
vestments profitable. But as this cannot be
dono, wo must all take our chane-s aid do the
best wc eau. So must thc present stockhold?
ers of thc Savannah aud Charleston Railroad.
It is limo that tuc parties holding control of
our railroads, which cannot pay their debt?,
should come clown to thc facts of thc case. If
tfiey cannot carry on tho railroad limier their
charge, according to their charter, let thom
step asido, like all oilier parties who caunot
pay their debts, anJ let their property ba sold
to rho highest bidder; and the property sold
will brin-; its full vaiuo, and pass into the
hands of parties who can use the raihoads
according to their original purpose, and will
do so as soon as they get pjssoisiou ol tho
s.nie.
ltailroad owncri , or rather those who now
hold tho offices appertaining to the control of
tue same, are not ou tit lcd to any moro leniency
than thousands ot others who uro compelled
to 6CO their property sacrificed to pay their
debts. If wc eau over get into our midst what
all aro crying out for-Northern capita1.-it
will only bc done by offering capitalists prop?
erty at such prices as will otl'.-r them induce?
ments to invest.
All our rai roads which are delinquent in
paying their debts, fe?r winch ?nc State ?? re?
sponsible, should bj offered for sale t" Mio
highest bul ler, and they will bring their full
value daring the present, spring, if then pat oil
tho market.
Now, I would propose thai tho Legislature
pass a bi l authorizing thc sale to the highest
I bidder lof the Savaunah and Charleston Rail?
road, fae Ureeiivillo Railroad, the Union and
Spart an ?nu g Railroad, the Laarens Railroad,
[and in fact all railroads or canals for whose
Ldcbts the Stale is responsible.
V 'ibero eau bc no doubt, under tao present
constitution, ot tue power of tho Legislature
to do this; and the sooner Um act Is passed
tho better for the interests ot the State and all
tax-payers.
While on the subject of the responsibility ot'
the State for rafi road liabilities, Ac., allow mc
to expicss tho thanks ol'tuc tax-payers of the
Stat*1 for tlie nollie and manly bland taken by
Governor Scott in their defence, m rot using to
i-sue bonds for tho notes of tho Rank of thc
State. Ir is a question whether thc State is
liable beyond the capital put asido for tho
creation of that corporation, mid until that
question Is decided by thc Untied Statea Courts
t!if.-c bonds should uot bc issued.
There are other questions co.mectcd with

by Governor Scott they would have been
struck at as liable to be repudiated by a future

CHRISTMAS IX SUMM EH VILLE.
[FItOM AN OCCASION AL conKKsrosoKNT.j
SuiHtKitviLLK, S. C., D-comber 25.-Christ?
mas has parsed oil' quietly but joyously in this
pleasant village. The most noticeable feature
of the day was thc Christmas trco improvised
at Voso's Hotel. At an early hour the room
was lilied with the tide of Summerville. As
the tree was prepared for thc benefit of tho
Episcopal Church, an admittance foe of ten
cents was charged. Thc tree, radiant with its
bright holly berries, brilliantly illuminated
and hung with toys, fruit and confections, for
which a moderate sam was asked, attracted
tho little ones, whose bricht faces plainly ex?
pressed the pleasure they felt. In an adjoin?
ing room, a table laden with refreshments,
was presided over by a few ladies. Oysters,
dt-lieiouslv prepared custards, blanc manse,
jellies aud cake, templed tho palaic, and all
were pleased with the entertainment. The
sum realized by this treo is about forty dol?ais.
As Summerville has few inhabitants now, this
is considered very good.
At a private house, there was another tree
prepared for tlie gratificad m oi' a little boy-a
very precocious child of five years. Sovcral
chi.'divn were invited, to see it, ?md each
weat homo at an early hour with some
gift from the tree, gracefully presented
by the child for wiio.se pleasure it was
prepared. The tree was of cedar, hong with
apples, oranges, gilded walnuts, candies, bags
of sugar plums and elegantly illuminated pic?
ture boo:;s, tho whole lit np with i ?ny wax
caudles and transparent lanterns. At the- ibjt
ol' the tree a beautiful farm-yard delir-hied the
children; the poultry, unlike"mose toys repre?
senting the feathered tribe, wore elad in their
appropriate plumage, and the maid with corn
in her apron feeding them :seemed so natural
as to cms .-d general admiration. On thc top
of the tree lo tho right was a handsome e,rcon
silk Hag, with heavy gold fringe aud tho words
'.Erin go bragh" wrought Ingold in the centre;
this was a Christmas present from a lady
friend in New York to thc child. To the lett
was a handsome German flag, black, red and
yellow, sent by his falber as a birthday pres?
ent a few mouths ago. E. ?. D.

DEATH Ol' JtEV. JIASIL 31AXLY. S Je?
llie Greenville papers contain tho announce?
ment of the doath, ou Ken dav last, at the
residence of his son in that place, of the Kev.
Basil Manly, Sr., D. D., in his seventieth year.
Dr. Manly was universally known throughout
the Baptist denomination of the South, and
had hoon serving in the ministry for over forty
years. He was a native of North Carolina, but
his life and services bad been loug identified
with thc denomination i-i this State. The fune?
ral services look placo in thc Baptist Church.
Greenville, on Tuesday afternoon-the sermon
being preached by Rev. James P. Boyce, D. D.,
Dr. Basil Manly, Sr., waa born in Chathnm
Couuty, North Carolina, January 29. 1793. He
was4sent by his father to the South Carolina
College in 1319, and Riaduated with thc first
honor in 1821. Aller leaving college he settled
in Edgefield, and preached in that district till
182G. Du was then called to tho pastorate of
thc First Baptist Church in Charleston, suc?
ceeding that eminent minister, Dr. R. Furraan,
who had been a short time beiorc removed by
death. He remained in Charleston about ten
years, and was then elected to the presidency
ol thu Stato College of Alabama, at Tuscaloo?
sa. He acceptod thc office, and filled tho po?
sition with great distinction for ability and
wise management for twenty years. His rep?
utation seemed him thc ofter of the presider cy
of the South Carolina College, and also of Fur
man University, both of which he declined. He
resigned the presidency of tho college in Ala?
bama, .and returned t? Charleston for about
two years, taking tho pastorate ot the Went
worth-street Church; was again solicited to an
important field of ministerial labor in Alabama,
and returnod to tint: State. In 13a4, whilst he
was paslor of tho Baptist (.'burch, in Mont?
gomery, he was stricken with paralysis, which
terminated his active labors, ak hough he re?
covered sufficiently to preach and lecture with
all his wonted power of ins true Ihm, save his
inability to indulge in the sana eloquence and
pathos of manner which hid characterized
him in tho days of his strength. Hil nervous
system was too much enfeebled to .sustain
fil oug emotional efforts, although his tine
reasoning powers seen-?'! little, if ut all dimin?
ished, in thc las: years of hts life.
