Last week wc mentioned among
our editorial gleanings the terrible
cutting of Dr. IL J. A vinger at Jetter
son. Texas, by a colored man. We
were not certain at the time that he
was otic ?f the ?rnhgebui'g Avihgcrs,
but wc have since learned that he is,

friends and relatives in our County
we give liui full particulars. lie is a
member of the Legislature of Texas,
and is highly respected in his adopt
ed State. We clip the following from
the .Jefferson Democrat:
"The citi/.ens of this city were
greatly shocked Saturday night by
receiving the unwelcome intelligence,
that Dr. II. .1. Avingcr, of Avinger
station, on the East Line railroad,
had beeil cut, u little after sundown,
on that: evening, by a negro, and it
was feared ?ah mortally wounded. It
appears, from what we can learn, that
the negro thai cue him was a farm
hand. There wits sonic misundcr
stft?rriing between him and Dr. A;,
about business. The negro beeaVnc:
very insulting. The Doctor, finally
exasperated, knocked him down,
when the negro, who hud a razor in
his hand that he had brought along
to shutpen, reachctl up and struck
Dr. A. across the bowels, inflicting
an eightinull wound, from which the
entrails protruded. One of them was
slightly cut. A train was dispatched
immediately from Avinger station to
this place for a physician, but it was
fully eight hours before Dr. Terhtine,
who went, got there. During all that
time Dr. Avingcr's protruding bow
ids had been exposed to the air, and
had become dry and swollen. Dr.
Clnpton, who could not leavet at the
time on account of a sick pr.ltcnt.
went to Avinger station au 1 return
ed at 10 a. m. yesterday. Both yhy
sicians represent Dr. Avingcr's posi
tion as critical. Wc saw a party that
left Avinger station at 10 o'clock this
morning, but could learn nothing do
finite as to Dr. A.'s condition.
This is indeed a deplorable affair.
Dr. Avinger is a gentleman univer
sally esteemed; a man of warm heart
ami liberal views, and full of enter
prise. His death would bo an irre
parable calamity. Our own personal
reelings arc deeply enlisted in his
fate, and wc shall look with anxiety
lor the intelligence from him."
Intelligence has since reached, us
that Dr. Avinger is (lead. Our deep
est sympathies arc extended to his
relatives, both in Orangcburg and

Long ContTsiurs.?Beyond a cer
tain point there is no progress in
courtship. When the parties to the
a (lair have arrived at the conviction
that they were "made for each other,"
and cannot be happy apart, the
sooner they become "one and in
separable" the better. Antenuptial
affection id us mobile us quick-silver,
and when it lias reached its highest
point, the safest policy is to merge it
into matrimonial bliss. Otherwise,
j it may retrograde. Very long court
ships often end in a backout on o it
side or the other?the retiring party
beiug in most cases "inconstant
man." And we would hint to that
unreliable being that, ho has no right
to dangle .after an estimable woman
for years without tiny fixed inten
tion of marrying her. The best tiling
a lady can do tinder such eireiim
stances is to bring matters to a focus,
by asking the point-no point gentle
man what he means, arid when? She
can either do that or dismiss him al
together. Perhaps the latter plan
would be the belter one; for a man
who is alow to matrimony is general
ly slow in all concerns of life.

lie that hateth his brother has the
germ of murder in Iiis heart. The
evil principle may never mature in
the concrete form, but this is its na
ture and that is its legitimate re
sult, j This teaching of the Divine
revelation is confirmed by all human
experience, and is attested on every
page of history.
A who c people stand apalicd at
the attack upon the President. The
national jubilee was at hand and thc
holiday rejoicings had already begur
when the blow came, and joy gave
place to grief. And this is xpo ccm
mon Borrow; the President was as
sailed because of hjs liitrh position,
and every loyal heart ft is the sting
of the deadly wound.
Whether the assassin was s:ine or
unsettled in his intellect, General
Gajfield had provoked no personal
enmity by private word or deed, and
alpthere is of significance in the das
tartly attempt upon his life shows
that it was directed against the'es
tablished authority of the republic
in i the pel son id" its recojgnize I head,
ll^was the President and not the indi
vidual whose life was sought, and
this is treason itj purpose and act.
if it were 'only t>he sorrow of a pri
vate circle, the people would he ready
with their tundcrest sympathies for a
family so deeply atliiclcd. The wife
had not fully recovered from a wast
ing sickn s-i that met her almost at
the threshold of the 'n'hite House,
and it was to join1 the dear invalid
who had sought for new strength at
the seaside that the husband was
hastening when he was pierced with
the traitor's bullet. The hiving wife,
the age- l mother and the young child
ren, who hardly yet realize t be mean
ing of these sad events will have all
fejus .strength and consolation that
nftllious of praying hearts can invoke
for them in this tlyingliohr.
Bu4 the people are called to some
laifttiy^^W&'wca n notdisguise the
shameful fuel thai the assassin'sMii*
tent is the direct outcome of tin- bit
terness and ianeor of pirty strife
which has been carried l(; such ex
tremes during the current year;
The mail (tiiitenu hail been a trust

dential can vans. Iiis titLrr:\ne6*i in
otir own ghat City had been printed
in pamphlet form and circulated as
campaign docuniontsj and he had
been promised lie reward usually
math Iii shell zealous partisanship.
The split ill his party bad left him
for the moment on the losing side.
We may grant that lie had tided his
mind with sIo.hmoI" the oi l world
methods of re I reusing popular gri ev
tl nees; that he h id beea disappointed
and disheartened at the failure of
his personal an.bitions: thai he had
become maddened by the rejection 6'.'
his supposed claims for party servi
ces, a lie i that Iiis political associates
not on iy bad in i sliari what ever in
the scheine Or its execution but wan id
gladly h ive stayed his hand if ihey
had known of his deadly purpose.
All this may be true, but it still re
mit ins patent to the tin lies', appre
hension that but for Ih; controversy
which has been carried to shell dis
credit able lengths inside of t he d un
inant party since the inauguration
of the present Administration the
President would have been in bis
usual health this day. His assail
ant, with the pistol h is but stefmded
and perfected the assaults of tongue
and pen which have been iriccsshh'
since the hour he took his oath of
ollice. There is too much bitterness
in ordinary parly warelare while the
canvass is going on and the election
is yet to be determined. Washing
ton foresaw "the baneful effects ol
the spirit of party," and in his Fare
well Address warned his countrymen
against it as the greatest enemy of
our-free iustilu ions. But whatever
may be done as long as innourn.? s
are opposed to each other, when tl.c
election is decided, all such crimina
tions ought certainty to cease. The
chief of a great people especially
ought to be respected for the sake 01
his position, if not out of regard for
his personal character, and no foul
tongue sin uld ut.cr its slanders

bitter and cruel than the e<n-e.-ts
that come through national aggres
sion or foreign invasion, so the| ?eat
cd struggles be.t ween factions within
party lines are J lways more f nvuge
and pitiless man Old n r,\ parly
We do not any that the Preshleut
and his advisers were tree from blame
i.i the warfare that has kept the
country in such a fever of excite
ment, but wo must apportion the
greater share oft he condemnation to
those who were arrayed against him.
These scenes that have been enacted
at Washington and Albany, and have
bad their counterpart of greater or
less degree in other sections of the
con n try j have disgusted every unpre
judiced citizen of whatever party,
and have created the most profound
apprehension in thoughtful minds
at the issue nnd its effect upon tin
welfare of the country and the puri
ty of our government.
For the first time in our history the
tender of ofiicc has been openly held
to be a fitting argument to secure
desired legislation; and this has
both stimulated the greed lor place
nnd multiplied the scandals connect
ed with appointment und preferment.
The act which has now ea?t a gloom
over all the land is the legitimate
fruit of this noxious growth?the
embodiment of the spirit of party
malignity in the self-constituted
minister of vengeance.
Those who shudder and shrink
aghast at this incarnation of their
evil passions and resentments will
learn, wc hope, the lesson of the
hour. The shadow of death points
lis skeleton finger at the chief actors
in this most disgraceful struggle.
We hope the rebuke will be felt, and.
those more especially addressed will
heed the solemn warning. It lias not
come a day too soon, and if it is not
effective the people, irrespective of
party, will rise in their might and
make short work with the dema
gogues who have carried their fac
tional feuds to such a deplorable con ?
elusion. If in the presence or under
the threatening shadow of this great
monitor they heed the lesson and
shrink into the oblivion they'ought
to covet, the peace may not be too
dearly purchased even at such n
costly price; and out of-the bitter
(sacrifice may come the sweety fruits of;
a renewed and lasting prosperity.?

Forests and Rainfall.
Whether the forests insure a great
er rainfall in their vicinity than is
received upon an equal area of open
land has been disputed among seien
lific men, though the preponderance
of opinion now seems to favor the
conclusion that the rainfall is most
abundaut in wooded regions. This
corresponds also with the prevalent
belief of the common people, the un
scientific but practical observer^.
A special committee of the Royal
Academy of Vienna, reporting in
1 j/l upon a "Memoir of Mr. 11of rath
Wex upon the Diminution of the
Water of Rivers and Streams," used
the following language, upon this
particular point: "Phis question of
the influence of forests upon the
amount of precipitation has lor so in e;
time engaged the attention of natur
alists. Such an influence has been
asserted, partly . from theoretic con
siderations, and partly on account oi
the entire 'change presented by the
climatic relations of the countries in
which the forests have disappeared.
* * * It is probable that such
influence exists ; but w hile on the one
hand its consequences may lie over
estimated, on the other hand there is
want of direct proof, inasmuch as the
rain measurements have been con
tinued for too-short a time, both at
stations situated within the woods
and outside of them in the open
The commission consequently con
cluded that an influence of the woods
upon the amount of rain deposited,
and especially upon the yearly con
tribution, is probable, although di
rect observation docs not give sulli
cieiit evidence to determine its ex
tent, or positively its existence.
Dr. Hogers, of Mauritius, gives
this testimony: "So late as 18(5-1 the
island was resorted to by invalids
from India, as the'pearl' of the In
dian Ocean?it being then one mass
of verdt r ?. But, when the fores s
were cleared to gain space for sugar
cultivation, the rainfall diminished,
the rivers dwindled down to muddy
streams, the water became stagnant
in cracks, crevices and natural hol
lows, w hile the equable temperature
of the island entirely changed, drou
ght was experienced in the midst of
the ocean, and thunder showers were
rarely any longer witnessed. * * *
The hills were subsequently planted
with trees, and the rivers and streams
resumed their former dimensions."?
