This morning Tom Briggs, colored,
livint on Mrs. McKnight's place, about
two miles east of Manning, reported in
Manning that a negro went to his house
claiming he was Henry Austin, the
Hampton decpei ado. Mr. R. F. DuBose
volunteered 'and went after him, and
about 2 o'clock bad the suspect lodged
in jail. If this man is not Austin, very
likely he is wanted somewhere.
Mr. S. L. Huggins has demonstrated
that trucking will pay even here off
the main line of railroad. He went
into the irish potato culture, and has
so far marketed ten barrels at high1

Manning ?ostmaster Resigned.
The enforcement of a rule of the
postoffice department requiring the
t. postmaster, not only to give personal
- attention to the office, but manual
- labor must also be performed by the
t one holding the commission, has forced
the postmaster at Manning to resign;
t the resignation being forwarded im
mediately upon the receipt of a letter
from the First Assistant Postmaster
General saving it was reported to the
r department the postmaster at this
place "had no regular office hours,"
. and the "principal duties in the office
t consisted of signing reports."
The Manning postoffice has been
) under its present management for the
I past nineteen years, receiving the first
commission under the Cleveland ad
f ministration, and re-commissioned by
all of the succeeding administrations.
During this period, the office has been
frequently visited by the government
Insuectors who made favorable reports
on the conduct of the office to their
chiets, each and every one of them was
informed that the one holding the com
mission did not perform the manual
labor of the office, and it was under
stood all of these years at the depart
ment such was the case. Under the
new administration however, a strict
compliance with the rule is demanded
and without giving notice of the policy
the postmaster was given to understand
the resignation would be accepted.
It is presumed that Congressman
Whaley will file his recommendation
for the new appointee immediately
upon being informed the resignation
has been filed, and the new postmaster
will take charge as soon as the com
Those connected with the postoffice
labored hard to give to the publc a
good service, often remaining on duty
when it was not required by the reg
ulations, and frequently discommoding
themselves to please the public. Thous
ands of dollars and countless valuable
packages has passed through the office
without a loss; the reports have been
promptly and accurately made, the
marils have been dispatched so as to
win the commendation of those who
must handle the mass of matter on the
trains, in fact, the office force took a
keen pride in doing its work well and
to win the approval of those who would
visit the office officially; we have every
reason to believe the public generally
was also pleased, but with a change in
administration, a political office is un
certain; when Congressman Whaley
was chosen, it was the opinion of the
postmaster's friends there would be a
change made, and while they would
rather not have it so, they are not sur
"Vengeance is mine-I will repay."
The debt is large and long the day,
The world is full of wicked deeds .
And men, regardless, of true creeds;
How can we hold, we must lay hands
On those who blast life's tenderest bands
Who take delight to do us ill
In robbing us of friends' good will.
"Vengeance is mine-I will repay,"
God gives us grace, to wait the day;
And hold ourselves, still free from guils,
T'ward those who torture us the while
Satan with ever ready darts
Is lurking in these sinful hearts;
And prompts us to let arrow flay
To punish sin without delay.
*Vengeance is mine-I will repay,"
Oh! hasten God the gladsome day;
When in thy justice deeds will measure,
Free from earth's sordid thought of
And we shall stand in thy fair sight,
To see those who down trod the right;
Meted out justice, just and true,
As we on earth could never do.
"Vengeance is mine-I will repay,"
Poor guilty wretch~knowst then the day
Will surely come-God's word is true,
Think when that vengeance reaches you!
While time is up-repent and turn,
God's mercy seek, and do not spurn;
For sure as night does follow day,
"Vengeance is mine-I will repay."
