WE HAVE received at our offic
the first number of the "Honea
Pathi Herald,'' p~ubli shed by
McDavid & Bear'd. From its
first issue it promises to be a live
and an energetic paper. Thle Sal
utatory and the editorials which
follow it, bespeak for its editor
success in the fields of' journalism,
and our wish is, that the "Herald"
might live long and prosper, and
that it will also receive the patron
age which such an enterprise de
THE FIRsT number of the
"Charleston Independent" has
found its way into our sanctum.
It is published in Charleston by
Messrs. J. Hendrix McLane & T.
Barker Jones. The would be
Greenback Governor has quit his
old colors, in name, and now at
I empts to run what he calls an In
dependent sheet. H~e will en use
us for terming it a dependent rad

and his party fail to be saved by

arrival of the West bound train, to
see Chief-of-Police Greer, from
Greenville, alight from the train
and proceed to hunt up Iolice- E
man Martin, of bur town. But in t
fifteen minutes time the whole mat- 1
ter was explained, by the capture '
of Primus Moore, colored, who c
was supposed to have been one of (
a partj who had robed the Cloth
ing store of Messrs. McMahan & t
Gwinn, of Greenville, on Monday
night previous. le was carried E
by the officers around to his stop- 1
ping place at Hannah Good's. But I
officer Martin went on to Eliza J
Austin's,another friend of Primuis,
where he found a large bulk of the I
stolen goods, she taking pleasure 2
in showing them up, while Prinius
denied the theft, saying they were I
given to him by his mother. le I
had in different places, goods toll
the amount of $150.00, all of which .1
were recognized by McMahan &
Gwinn as their goods, however,
some of which they had not niss
ed. He, or they, had eltered the Q
store from the rear hy. using an ax.
h'ie gas was btirning in the store 'I
w hich he did not even lower, and 'j
an open glass front made it a most
daring piece of business, wohen it 5
is considered that he picked for
the best goods in the house, ran.

even took shirts in the front win

was carried, by Capt Greer, to
Greenville on Saturday night and
lodged in the guard-house, where :
he, on Sunday, still dlenied the 1
theft, but ownedl that he was an es- i
capedi conviet from North Caroli- e
aa, which ledl to a correspondence <
with the oficials,which prloved that'I
he was correct, he having escapedl 1
from there little over a year ago.
[His right name is Gus Cole, and i
of course he will have to be return
ed there to' finish his sentence be- <
fore being tried in Greenville. It <
is now thought that he had some
thing to do with the P. 0. robbery I
in this place in Feburay last, as
he was here at the time, but was
in jail in Pickens, for living in
adultery, when the store of Robin
son- & Wyatt was robbed in April.
He is a regulai adept, and it is
hoped that enough may be found I
against him to keep him the bal- I
ance of his undeserving days. I
