The Trouble in Store.
Though no notices of contests have
as yet been filed by Republican can
didates for Congress from Southern
States during the last campaign, it is
understood that within the time
specified by law notice of contest will
be filed by the Republican onndidale
in Delaware, on tho ground of illegal
election laws. In West Virginia the
seat of Mr. Wilson will be contested
by the Republican candidate in the
First District. Mr. Wilson's majori
ty as claimed was about 120. In
Virginia a readjuster candidate talks
of contesting Cabell's seat in the Fifth
District; In North Carolina's First
District, Grand}', Republican, will
contest Latham's scat. In South
Carolina, under instructions, it is tin
dcrstood, from the National Republi
can Committee, the five Democratic
Representatives will have contests.
In Georgia's First District Collins,
Republican, will contest Black's scat.
Iu ? Florida Bisbee will again be a
oontestimt for the seal from the Sec
ond District. In Alabama Lowe,
Greenback Democratic opponent in
the Eighth District, and in the Fourth
the Pepubiicnu will contest Shelley's
seat. In Mississippi Chalmers, rep
resenting the Sixth or Shoe String
District, will, have hid right to the
certificate contested by Lynch, color
ed. In Louisiana the coutest will be
for the seals of Messrs. Gibson, of the
First, Blanchard, of the Fourth and
King, of the Fifth districts. In
Missouri the Third Districts will give
a contestant named Lessinghani, who
disputes the election of Mr. Frost,
whose claimed majority was about
one huudred and ninety. Ic wili
thus be aeon that there is a probabili
ty of sixteen Republican Congression
al nominees in ^Southern States con
testing the seats of that number of
Democrats.?Neio York Herald.
Murder and Retribution.
A dispatch to The News und Couri
er, dated the Bill instant sa^s : "Mr.
Thomas Kennedy, a farmer residing
in Clarendon County, (Salem,) left
home on Sunday last to get his moth
cr to come to his house and stay with
his wife until he went to Charleston
and returned. AVhen ho returned
homo Sunday evening with his moth
er he found his wife dead in the yard.
Her skull was brokcil in one or two
places. The blows had been indicted
with some sharp-edged instrument.
The house had been plundered and
several trunks broken open. It is
uot known that the murderers got
any money. Several negroes have i
been arrested and great excitement
prey ails. Mr. Kennedy married lat>l
winter, and Iiis wife would have been
confined iu a few wecke.
A press dispatch dated the 'Jib tells
the rent of the story : "The three ne
groes?one woman and two men?
who murdered Mrs. Kennedy in Clar
endon County last Sunday, were cap
tured yesterday and hung on the
nearest tree to the place of the mur
der thut would hold them."
The reason for the retirement of
Generals McDowell and Ord was
because General Sherman would not
consent to the retirement of one with
out the other. General Ord is poor
and is a Democrat. Ho wrote a con
gratulatory letter to General Han
cock on his nomination. General
McDowell is rich and is a Republican.
He traveled a long distance to vote
for Gurfield.

the concertina in their rooms, iu order

This may be all very well for the
I young men, but it will tempt their
next door neighbors to some act of
sinful violence. Talmngo should
remember that the performance of
Mr. Dick Swiveler on the llutc did
not add to the moral strength of his
Carolina's Sweet Sixtoen.
A curious petition was that addres
sed in 17153 to Hie Governor of .South
Carolina by sixteen maidens of Char
leston. It ran thus : "The humble
petition of all the maids whose names
arc underwritten. Whereas, we, the
humble petitioners, are at present in
a very melancholy disposition of mind
considcriug how all the bachelors are
blindly captivated by widows, and our
own. youthful charms are thereby
neglected ; in consequence of this, our
request is that Your Excellency will
for the future order that no widow
ptcsume to marry any young man till
tuqjpaids are provided ^lot ; or else
to pay each of them a fine for ualis
faction for invading our liberties ami
likewise a line to be levied on all such
bae?elors as shall he married to wid
ow v The great disadvantage it is lo
jis maids is that the widows, by their
forwurd carriage, do snap up the
young men, and have the vanity to
f hi nil their merits beyond ours, which ?
in a great imposition on us, who ought
to have the preference. This is hum
bly recommended to Your Excellen
cy's consideration, and hope you will
permit' no further insults. Aud we
poor maids in duty bound will aver

have Very much approved the edict
of the Portuguese King, which for

old from remarrying, on the ground
that experience taught that widows of;
thai age commonly wedded young
men of no property who dissipated
the fortunes such marriages brought
them, to the prejudice of children and
other relatives.
Not for Joe.
Joseph was a scoffer and a "bad lot"
generali}'. Meeting an oflicerof the
American society the other day, he
chuekljngly asked: "You give out a
good many Bibles In tbo course of a
year?" The officer said: "Yes, very
muny." "And what do you suppose
becomes of them?" "They fall into
hands that need them, I doubt not."
"Well," said Joseph, producing a I
book with the look of a man who
would ta}1, "Now* I've got you,"
"where do yo suppose I got that?"
The man of Bibles couldn't say, "Got
it in a rum shop. You gave it to a
sailor and he sold it for a glass of
rum." "Well," said the other, "I
am glad it has fallen into your hands,!

Vidotte Off Duty.
Out Tost, Dec. 10, 1880.
Editors Orangeburg Democrat:
No doubt Picket thinks (if he cun
think of anything except the shoulder
straps he baa won) that his last shot
lifted ray scaly, and that if ray bones
are not now bleaching on the Out
Post, that at lea t my Enfield is now
in the bands of ano'.ber, and so far as
I um concerned, it is silenced forever.
Well, I rather hesitate to spoil this
delightful, day-dream delusion and
again awake him to the fact that this
mortality has not yet become a
"kneaded clod," nor has the En field
lost a whit of her accuracy or power.
The reason be h:is not heard from me
before this ia, that I have been too
busy taking care of the front to look
behind. In the light of the general
engagement, all minor matters paled,
and now aflor the smoke has some
what cleared away and I look about
me I see Picket with that commission
in hand and the shoulder straps on
quietly silling in his wall tent study
ing the army regulations. I natural
ly suspect lhat be is looking up (.11
anticipation of my next shot) the
host "charge*' and the necessary
''specifications" to get mo before a
military court. No wonder then that
I hesitate about "shooting without
orders," for to tell Ihc secret Picket's
commission gives him authority in
my brigade;' mind you, not over it.
So whatever he says I must do. I
will havn to obey nntil a superior of
ficer says otherwise, as I am still a
simple vidette. So I will not disturb
bis mi.id by answering the poiuts (I
am glad they were not pints) he
made in his last to me, but will leave
him to the study of the army regula
tions?he will find that he will need
to do so. ri?j.
But, Messrs. Editors, I will not
close my letter here, as 1 wish to
talk a little about some mementos' I
have picked up in walking over the
battle field. I cam* across a whole
pile of missies the other day that
were fired off, I think by our side.
They were fired from very light ordi
nance if I am to judge by the weight
of the metal. Somebody hail lound
them before I did, and labeled them
"chunks of wisdom." This attrac
tive index interested me and I at
once picked up these "chunks" and
examined them carefully one by one.
I found tl ein very light chunks and
never did find the wisdom. I sal
down and thought the matter over|
very seriously, and nil at once it
Hashed into my mind that the man
who walked over the field ahead of
me and found those "chunks" was a
wag, and piled them up and labelled
them just to play a practical joke on
the next one who might pass that
way. 1 was the victim. The Register
man stumbled over them loo, and as
he docs not believe half as much in
jokes as be does in statistics, he scat
tered the "chunks" promiscuously.
He forgot to sitae bow many there
were in the pile, and how much money
the time it took to fling these
"chunks" together cost the State.
I left these chunks n'ul went on.
I found Messrs. Gar field, Con kling,
Ulaine and Catnerotu playing seven
up. I looked on and found that the
slake3 were government positions.
Each one would name Irs man for a
certain place and the one who beat
would have his man put on the slate
for the position played for. I don't
know much about the game, but I
asked them if llicy would not let me
come in and give South Carolina a
chance. They looked at me, thought
I could not win a game, and let me
come in. I lust very much oftencr
Ihun I won, but still I bad some luck,
lam glad to announce that for the
I following positions I put up the fol
lowing names and won: Minister to
Hayti, D. A. Straker; Consul at
Monrovia, Geo. Boliver; Indian
Agent at the Sioux Reservation,
Abial Lalhrop. I came in one point
I of getting the stitlcrshtp at Silka for
j John 11. Livingston, but Conkting
I turned "Jack/ and got it for his man.
[The three first named, however, can
rest contented that I have secured
thetn nico places, and I think too,
that they will meet the suggestions of
Mr. Hayes as to civil service reform
for the several positions I succeeded
in having them "slated" for. I don't
charge them anything for my services
in their behalf, except that 1 shall ex
pect them to prove by their faithful
services tiio judiciousness of my nom
inations. If this information does
not contain any "chunks" of wisdom,
it at least contains some "plums of
consolation," and is evidence that; I
can afford to be generous as well as
I will try and come down and take
another look at Picket with bis shoul
der straps and auny regulations as
soon as he guts that wall lent well
warmed up. In the meantime I will
listen and try lo hear'with what kind
of voice he issues his orders.
"Will you be kind enough, Mr.
Gilhooly, to inform me when you are
going to pay me for those ten-dollar *
boots:" asked a Galveston shoe-ma
ker. "It's too far off to guess?too
curly in the campaign." "But I
would like to know as I need mon
ey." So do I, but since the late
election I've quit the prognosticating
business. Wrhcn it comes to a ques
tion of such national importance aa
payiug for those boots, I am thorough
ly unreliable ; but I'll tell you what
I'll do." "f am willing to take even
a small amount on account." "So
am I. Thatis just what I was going
to propose. There is nothing that
affords me half so much pleasure as
to pay my debts. Now I propose to
make a partial payment. You lend
me ten dollars and I'll mako a fair
divide and let you have Qve dollars
on account." The shoemaker says
there is altogether too much fraud in
the returns,? Galocston News.
Mn. and Mrs. Olfutt drotfo twenty
miles to Paris, Ky., to see a perform

Mrs. OfTutt, who was young and pret

the play. The Oflutts went to the
same hotel where the comedian stay

the stage and at the dinner table.
Spangel Uirted with his wife. After
the meal OfTutt decoyed Spnngler into
a second-story room, locked the door
and gave him the choice between
jumpiug out of the window and being

Most people hear or use the words
"Mrs. Grundy," as apulicd to gossip,
und meaning the female part of socie
ty, according to fashionable slang,
without their origin. "What Mrs.
Grundy says" moans what the gossips
says. The original Mrs. Grundy was
the wifo of President Van Burcn'a

of Tennessee, and she ruled aristocra

presence was Indispensable to the
success of all fashionable gatherings, "
and such an authority she bcentne on
social topics that the expression
"What Mrs. Grundy says" bec.iuao
so oommon as to outlive her fame.
