Mr. Levi's "Bull-dog britehes" are

Mr. J. St. J. Yates, the popular
agent of the "Joh~n Pe'ter Richardson

We hope to see Mr. Yates again in
Manning at an early day.
The Columbia Rfegisfer says: "The
friends of Col. Jos. H. Earle, of Sun

nomination of Attorney General of
South Carolina." The gentleman in

would be a credit to South Carolina.

Friday evening on the invitation of
the Rev. L. W. Jenkins, we were
present at his school exhibition in the
colored Baptist Church. The exercis
es, consisting of declamations, dia
logues and songs, were exceedingly
entertaining. Rev. Jenkins is a good
man and an excellent teacher, and he
deserves the well done of of every cit
izen for his humble endeavors to im
prove and elevate his race. Under
his instruction, his scholars have made
excellent progress. Some of the recit
ations would have been creditable to
any institution, and the singing was
grand. One song, "God is love,"
struck us as being as good singing as
we have ever heard.

FnRFUL AcCeDENT ox TfE SANEE
Trsr.-Monday afternoon the
news reached Manning by wire that
a palt of Santee trestle had fallen in
with a passenger train going north,
making a complete wreck and killing
a great many persons. Later it was
learned that seven dead bodies had
been taken from the debris, two of
whom were unknown. The others
are Capt. Cole, master of the line of
steamers plying on the Santee River,
between Charleston and Wright's
Bluff, and wife, a Mrs. Miller, of Flor
ence, Miss McWhite, supposed to be
from Marion, and Dr. 'Kinloch, of
Mar's Bluff, who is a son of the dis
tinguished surgeon of Charleston,
Dr. Kinloch. Though diligent in
quiry was made, nothing further could
be learned. No mail reached here
yesterday morning, and as we go to
press no positive information has been
rf.ved. The employes of the road
here say that thc train was composed
of five cars-mail, baggage, first and
second-class, and a sleeper. The
trestle broke just behind the en
gine, under the tender, and the engin
eer seeing the condition, with light
ning rapidity opened wide his throt
te, and this sudden impetus to the
engine, snapped it from the tender,
which. plunged down in the water be
low. The express, baggage, and two
passenger coaches followed after it.
The mail agent, Reimecker, was fear
fully mangled and will die. The bag
gage master miraculously escaped,
and the conductor's arm was broken
and head severely cut. The cars
were completely demolished.

-Dog shows are ex
tremely rare in Manning, and espec
ially exhibitions by mad dogs. The
wild antics of a cur belongibg to B.
Pressley Baron, Esq., on last Thurs
day, besides frightening several of our
good citizens out of their wits, created
a memorable sensation. The dog's
name was Rover, and a very fine fel
low he was too-the last dog to be
accused of getting mad. But early
in the morning Rover misbehaved
very strangely for so good a dog.
Later in the day he acted still more
queerly, scaring Mrs. Barron and
children awfully, and finally, to cap
the climax, left home at a break-neck
speed. From then his conduct was
most inexcusable for a dog with so
blameless a reputation. Invading
Mr. Blanding Ivy's premises, he jump
ed on the bed where Mrs. Ivy was,
and out at the window, frightening
her beyond description. Then, with
out leave or license, he bounded
through the dwellings of Mr. P. B.
Mouzon and Dr. H. H. Huggins, act
ually causing Mr. Geo. H. Huggins
to drop the reins of a horse he was
holding and scamper pell mell into a
room, bang and bolt the door. Now
Rover was surely acting very wicked
ly, but had his wickedness stopped
here we might have forgiven him. In
stead of desisting on arriving on the
street and seeing his master, whom
he should have loved and honored,
with bristles erect and in a manner
most furious, rushed towards him.
The cry of mad dog had preceded
Rover, and Mr. Barron's first impulse
was to gather a pailing from the fence
at hand, but the fence wouldn't turn
loose. Then he decided in the little
time left for reflection, that on the
other side of the fence would be a
more commanding position from
which to watch the wild circus of his
favorite pet, and up he vaulted. Good
heavens ! Instead of getting over he
caught on top, and there he stood, im
paled to the fence. Rover passed
with an unearthly yell. Poor fellow !
Reason gone, frightened mad by the
position of his master. Extricating
himself as best he could from his ele
vation, Mr. B., equipped with a
heavy battering ram, followed in the
wake of Rover, who now seemed bent
on committing suicide. Entering
Mr. Galluchat's house, he went to the
kitchen and made his exit to the roof
(we learn from Mr. G.) through the
ilue of the cooking stove, jumping to
the ground. Still bent on his own
destruction, Rover next ascended the
stairs leading to thme rooms over the'
Bradhamn store, and sealing the top of
the building occupied by S. Stern,
actually sprang from that height, and
by a miracle landed once more on
terra finna unhurt. Now Rover's lie
roic action wvas suffcient to atone for
all his misdeeds, and the poor fellow
thought so too, for hie tried to save
himsedfl eeing from those who
watdto kill him; but no, he must
die. Excitement was intense. Mad
dog had gone from mouth to mouth.
Arms were collected-shot-guns, pis
ois, small cannons, bowie kniveCs,
cudgels, all were brought to kill Rover.
The Manning militia were called
for, and headed by Intendant Bell on
a fiery charger, in blood and thunder
tones were ordered "iorward." Poor
Rover, wearied, footsore, with sweat
pouring from him, tongue hanging
out and eves red from so much run
ning, did all he coul to save his life;
but everywhere he turned there they
were grey for his life. The brave
fellow had one advantage, but it
couldnt do him much good; from ev
Iery road he'took the militia retreated
nrecipitately. From street to street
the race was run, Rover and the milI
itia--once be took refuge ini :ms.j
Burgess piazza, and it looked like he
would hold the fort against his
pusurs but the militia men, true
Iand triedl, were ordered to do or dine.
The strong hold was stormed, and
bleeding, uying, amidst a perfect fua
silade, poor Rover ran his last race.
He reached the house of one, John
Smith, where he was surrounded, shot,
shot to nieces, and as he fell a glad
hurrah proclaimed, "the dog is dead."
