TE IANOINO OF McEvoy, in Aikor
on Saturday, proves that in spite of
the daring escapes of a malefactor
and the persistent attempts of
learned counsel to stave off the law,
crime will be punished.
Tins WILL BE a gala week in
Charleston. Excursion trains arc
running thither from all parts,
while the city furnishes entertain

a regatta, a Grand Lodge of Good

meeting of the Press Association.
DEMOCnATIc UIuBS cannot exercise
too great caution in admitting ne
members, especially from the
quondam adherents of Radicalism,
Radicalism, as opposed to Demlocra
cy, is as dead as a door nail, and
colored ex-Radicals are perfectly
willing to get into the Democratic
clubs, if they can. Every precau
tion n.ust be taken to secure the
purity of the primary elections by
admitting none but sincere Demo
crats into the different clubs. A
word to the wise is sufticient.
TuE NEWBERRY 0erald holds that
while Hampton should be renoui,
nated, yet the entire State tickel
should not be put in again merely
becauso it is now in of1ice. The
Ilerald thinks that every official
should stand on his own merits,
and if re-elected must be re-elected
for this reason, and not because hc
happens to be one of a bunch of
officials now serving. This is very
proper. While we have no objec
'tion to the renomination of any of
those gentlemen, we think they
should bo ran upon their merits.
THE I4BERIA EXODUS Association
were guilty of gross mismaunage
mont in getting the ship Azor ready
for sea. The firet day it was dis
covered that there was an excess of
forty-nine passengers and thes
were removed ; yet a count the nexj
day reached an excess of some sixty
odd, who had stolen aboard. A
number of these had bought ticketf
and sent their baggage aboard, and
very naturally were averse to having
their household goods separa ted
from them by thousands of miles

wishes to have Hampton electoi

then another; and thinks that the
friends of Hon. W. D. Simpsor
should eboose for him between th<
lieutenant-governorship and the
position of chiof:justice. On genmera
principles the views thus sexpressedJ
are very proper. No man should
step into an office b~y promotion
.But in the present anomalous con
dition of affairs, we see no objectiot
to re- electing Governor Hampton,
and then electing him to the United

before hand that this wvill be the
course pursued, the Con vention wi)

with a special view to his becomin~
governor. As the gubernatorial
election comecs iilest, there would be
no reason for not. renominating the
present executivo. People would
not understand the nomination o0
anyone elsethan Hampton. But aftei
the eleetion, if the Democracy shall
have retaired entire control of th<
State and overything is at peace, we(
see no objectio.n to replacing Pat.

The Blessings of Unity.
The recent municiprl election in
Winnsboro is an evidence of tho
importance of maintaining a united
Democratic organization. When
the contest was not political, and
the Democrats wore divided, the
Republicans displayed groat activity
and were boastful of what they
would do, not only in town, but in'
the county in November. But as
soon as the magic word of Domocra.
cy reconciled conflicting elements
and induced all parties to lay aside
individual preferences or preju
dices, for the good of the organiza
tion, all opposition fell still--born.
It was known that a united
Democracy was invincible, and in
consequence the last election was
one of the quietest on record. To
the two opposing candidates who
withdrew from the canvass in the
interest of harmony, much credit is
due for this satisfactory result.

AIaN, April 19.-The curtain at
last has fallen on the earthly career
of Robert McEvoy, and his case is
now before the Supreme Tribunal
of the universo. McEvoy was hung
to-day at toi minutea before 1
o'clouk, in one of the up-staeir cells
in the j til, in the p)reseico of the
shleriff anld assistantts, the prie'Jt andit
and the ten spectators allowed by
law, several of these being pmli"
nent colored men. The fall was
over six feet, and McEvoy, without
the slightest struggle, died in
fifteen minutes. In half an hour
the body was taken down, placed in
the coflin and given to his father,
who has carried it in a wagon to
Graniteville, where it will be in..
The arrangements for the execu
tion were very simple, the fatal rope
being suspended from a rafter, and
double trap doors cut in the floor
and supported by bars extending
from rolling beams in the cell below.
The sheriff, by pulling a string
above, turned the beam, and, the
prop falling, the trap door opened

Father Heicdinkalp was with
McEvoy from seven o'celock this
morning, and came out with him
from his cell to the one where the
trap was fixod, and remained by his
side to the last.
I am informed that MeEvoy's
mannor was calm and grave, and
the only words he uttered wvere,
"Let me straighten myself," when
the pinions were placed uncomfor
tably around him. About fifty per
sons gathered outside the jail.
Up to list evening MeEvoy
lrish.ed the hope of a further res

allowed to come. up town and have
his photograph taken. He told
Mr. Howland, the snperin tenlden t of
tih Graniteville Factory, that if he
would get himi a respite he would
tell who were the parties who shot
him two years ago. He also wrote
a long statement and sent it to

that he would give no names until

TOTAL ABSTINENCE SAVINQ WINE TILL IT
There is a curious story about some native
wines which arc extensively advertised nowa"
days, and have only recently been put upon
i the market. Dr. Underhili, the well-known
grape-grower of Croton Point, died in 187r.
Some of his heirs entertained temperance
views of such extreme kind, that they were
unwilling to allpw the stock of wines then on
hand to be sold or qny more to be made.
The grapes have sometimes been sent to
snarket, and sometimes left to decay upont
the vines. It is only now that the other heirs
have succeeded in arranging for a settlement
of the estate and the sale of the wines on
hand. Among these is a wine of the vintage
of 1864, described as a "Sweet Union Port,'
but suggesting the Imperial Tokay more
than any other European wine, and being
wholly unlike any other wine of American
growth. Its puritv, age and mellowness are
remarkable, and both physicians and wine
fanciers have. a special interest in it as the
oldest native wine now accessible in any con
siderable quantity. The whole stockis In the
hands of the well-known wholesale grocery
house of the Thurbers.-N. Y. Tibune,
Nov. 19, r/7.
The above speaks for itself, but we would
add that this is the pure juice of the grape,
neither drugged, liquored nor watered; that it
has been ripened and mellowed by age, and
for medicinal or sacramental purposes it is
unsurpassed. It can be obtained from most
of the leading Druggists throughout the
United States, and at wholesale from the
