Marshal, Demos Browtifield, is
igain at work arresting men for alleged .
icts of intimidation during the late 1
lection. Messrs. J, W. Blnkeney and

ast. How long this bit of persecution

they are doing it }0st to make moley,
not that the parlies are guilty; but '
hat the times are hard and that is an '

he was eatiglit, and began to beg : "Oh.

in there filling bags with shelled corn
and banding them to his confederateoutside.
On hearing Mr. McDowell

Pinetree neighborhood ia this county,
was burnt out of house and home on
the evening of the 24th ultimo. He lost
his dwelling, kitchen, barn?in short..
everything he had, including a yearV
provisions. It wa? the work of incendiaries,
who applied the torch to his
premises because he is a Democrat. He
has some evidence pointing to the guilty
parties, and hopes soon to have proof
sufficient to convict. Our friends oo
the other side may score another "political
outrage."
Wanted to Holler.?A man was
arrested the other night for b*ing tieht
nod walking up and down the street
hollering and with a revolver strapped
iround his waist with which he ' just
wanted to shoot one nigger." He was
told thatwould have to pay $5 or go

$5 and asked if he was free to holler
'ben. . ,
'Policeman? ' No; I'll have to fine

Stranger?"Can't help it. [ mv*t

Death of Mrs. L. L. Whitaker
Oo Tuesday morninc of this week, al!
that was mortal of Mrs L. L. WhitaIcer
was surrendered to the shroud.
After an illness of ten days with pneu*
ruonia, she quietly breathed her last.
For many years she'..s been a resident
of Western Wateree. and her friends
and neighbors will feel her demise.
She was a devout Christian and a pious
member of the Presbyterian Church.
It is Good to be in Luck.?The
proprietor of the Journal was the recipient
od Friday morning last of a box
if the "nice things" from the Presbyterian
Snnday*school Christmas tree.
We had a very happy and pleasant
Christmas, but really nothing gave us
more pleasure than this remembrance
by those kind ladies and good children,
md we hope that the little ones of this
jood old Church may have many happy
returns of tho occasion, and that their
preceptors may livo too to enjoy seeing
ihem have it. The Journal greets
hem all with a happy new year.
Fire.?The alarm of fire on Sunday
aight was caused by a lot of burning
jotton and shucks in a room in the rear
if Messrs. Hrasington & Nettles' store.

lie window by Mr. J. R. Condale, who
vas {joiner home from Church, and he
mmediately ran to the rear window,
vhich he found open, and went in. He
'ound a barrel of loose cotton burning
briskly, hut he managed tcrthrow it out
of the window and then cairied it into
:hc street. On going back to see if any
ire was left, he found a chair on fire,
vith a lot of shucks burning around it;
his he threw out of the window also*
hus removiog all the fire. It is a clear
ase that it was set on fire, as the cotton
ind shucks were at least ten fret apart,
iud there was no fire elsewhere in the
com.

Christmas.?The day in Cauiden
was all that could have been desired?
ilear, calm and cold?the prettiest
Christmas day for many years past; and
from every aide we hear people saying
it was a merry, merry one for them.
The children seem to have had an un
usually good time with their Christmas
trees, parties, etc., and were as happy
as only children can be. ~
The colored people, as usual, were as
jolly and happy as ever, and our streets
presented somewhat the appearance of
*nte?bellum days, with the crowds to
be seen joking, talking, laughing, etc.
In the morning a large crowd ot them
assembled on the platform in front of
Clyburn'e block, and engaged in an old
fashioned plantation break down. They
moved to the music of a Jewsharp.
while two or three others sitting arouDd
would 1 pat tho juba" and keep time.
Oo Thursday morning tho weather
had changed, and it was dark, gloomy
and rainy. The Christmas trees in the
evcuing for the Presbyterian and Epis
copal Sunday Schools did not have at
full an attendance as was expected, the
rain being too heavy for the children tr
venture out.
A Very Happy Occasion.?Or
Thursday evening last the ladies ol
the Presbyterian Church gave to theii
Sunday-school scholars one of the most
delightful entertainments that it ha<
ever been our pleasure to attend, in tin
way of a Christmas tree. The weather
W8P exceedingly bad. and many wen
kept away who otherwise would hav<
attended. Despite it all. however, tht
{attendance was fair, and while cloud:
and wind did their best outside, stil
bright eyes and m^rry hearts movec
within. The beautiful holly bush stooc
in the centr? of the lecture room, bear'
ing with grace and ease its preciooi
freight; and as the charming presenti
were taken therefrom and the name o
each little on ? was called, it was, indeed
a happy sight to witness the joy ant
pl-asure that sparkled in their beaming
ryes The children enjoyed it all, ant
doubtless will remember the delightfu
occasion. Prof. Evans, with his singinj
and music, added much, and nowher
did we see one sinele thiDg to mar ul
that it was iutended to be. To the la
di^R who had it in charge, too mud
praise cannot be given. They had bu
one desire, and that was to give pleas
are to their little flock. Bless them
Everything. that is good conies fror
them. What would this world be with
out them? A day without a sun,
night without a star. -iMay their ut
dcrtakings always be crowned with tU'

The Cotton MarketCamden,
January 2.
As might have been expected, the
receipts of cotton for the past week
hnve fallen off considerably. The price
has ruled about the same, and we quote
the market as clo.-ing yesterday at from
B to cent" for middling.
We publish below a few of the acts
recently passed by the Legislature,
which will be of interest to our people:
Joint resolution to provide for an
examination into the validity of the
school claims in Kershaw county, and
for the payment of the same.
An act to amend an act entitled an
act to authorize the county commissioners
of Darlington and K-rshaw counties
to levy a special tax, so far as relatps
to Kershaw county.
Joint resolution requiring county
treasurers to pay out school tunds remaining
in their hands from previous
yars to school expenses" of the present
year.
An act to prevent the charge of
breakage in the weighing of cotton.
An act to amend and continue in
force an net entitled an act to secure
landlords and persons mnking advances.
An act to make pay certificates and
jury tickets for attendance upon circuit

due the county in which said services
are rendered.
An act to amend an act entitled an

Redeeming Forfeited Lands.
Mr. Editor : The recent act of tin
Legislature in reference to forfeited
lands is nbly commented upon by a cor
respondent of the News and Courier
and wc agree with him in full, that it

were forfeited to I he State for non-pnyoietitof
taxes to redeem them by payinj
half the simple tax due thereon, is ar
act of injustice towards those who hav<
paid up theirs io full. It is a yen
partial pieoc of legislation, and our rep
resentaiives were not sent to the Legisla
ture for that kind of business.
It is a premium offered to men t<
stop paying tuxes, and an outrage on thi
good citizen who has struggled on an<
paid his in full, thereby enabling th
State government to keep up. If thos
men who own thoaBands of anrc3 o
land are not able to pay 1} to 3 cent
ao acre tax on their land, let it be sol
and pirss into the hands of men wl o wi'
pay it. 1)0 Dot compel tne orainnr
working man to pay for hia neighbo
who I109 countless acres that are iucreas
ing in value every year. This thin
has gone on long enough, and it i
about time for it to stop. The time
are too hard for tho sffiall land-holder
to bear the burdens of their neighborThe
following is nn extract irom the cor
responded of the News and Courier
' To illustrate the working of this ac
let us take the case of two several tax
payers whose annual State tax woul
amount to two hundred dollars. Th
no taxpayer we will suppose has pai
into the State treasury the sum of fou
hundred dollars in full for his taxes fn
1 ?76 and 1877. but has failed to pa
the tax of 1878. For this single He
fault he is charged with a heavy penalty
his properly is advertised and addition;
costs iio<i penalties incurred.
The oth'r taxpayer, who has wholl
failed to pay his taxes, is relieved fr<>r
all taxes by the payment ot one-half c
his tuxes due for the past three year'
(which, in the case supposed, would h
thre- hundr d dollars.) without costs n
penalties, aud with time for paymen
extended to September next.
Thus the taxpayer who has paid tw
years' taxes, amounting to four hundre
dollars, will have further to pay, to re
deem his property, the sum of tw
hundred and twenty dollars. He lothe
interest on two hundred dollars fo
two years, say twenty eight dollars, an<
the interest of two hundred dollars. f>
one year, say fourteen dollars rnukio
iu all the sum of six hundred and sixty
two dollars. 1 tie ntncr taxpayer, wti
has paid no taxes, w?uld accomplish th
like result by the payment, at noy tim
between this and September next, ci
three hundred dollars?a clear gain t
him of three hundred and sixtyMW
dollars.
Could a higher premium for th
withholding of taxes be d'vised ? 0
can you, Mr. Editor, imautne anythiu
more partial and unjust ?"
