Some complaint is made by people
living in Atwell and Mt. Ulla Townships
of an increase of taxes this year. This is
to be expected iu some instances as the
result of the recent re-valuation. The
result can iu no instance be traced to the
removal of any one or more individuals
from the office of County Commissioner,
as some pretend to argue. Nor is the
county plunged into debt from this
cause. Let reason temper the speech of
those who attempt to make capital out
of such matters. The accounts and books
of the county are open to the people, and
the officers in charge ai-e ready to an

From the Raleigh News Observer,
All the fools, are not dead yet, nnd
there seems to be unusual vitality among
them in Pennsylvania. The latest de
velopment in that department of nature,
is one William P. Snyder, who last enr
was employed by the department of
Justice to help out in the South Carolina
political trials. In April last Attoi nev
General Brewster wrote him, "dispen
sing with his services," and Mr. Suyder's
employment ceased. But to live ou
unknown to fame did not suit the aspi
rations of Snyder. He doubtless be
thought him of many methods of getting
his uame iu the dispatches, and tiuallv
adopted the plan of writing a letter.
Forthwith, therefore, on Novveiuber
21st, six mouths after he had ceased to
draw his pay as au assistant attorney of
the United States, he indited a letter of
resignation as follows :
"Sir : I hereby tender my resignation
as special Uuited States attorney and ask
that my relations with the department
of Justice, so far as prosecutions ot per
sons for violating the elective franchise
in South Carolina are concerned, be en
tirely aud immediately severed. Duty to
my friends, to my family and to myself
com pels me to do so. I am too young
to be killed, too honest to mislead, too
proud to be misled, and too patriotic not
to lebel. The department of Justice has
treated me kindly, aud if I cau serve it
hereafter in any capacity other than the
one which made me a slave, aud which I
hereby relinquish, 1 will be glad to
That was a litt'e too much even for
Brewster. We doubt not that the aged
Attorney General smiled all over at the
suggestion that "Snyder was too voting
to be killed," for it would seem that he
was exactly the right age if a fool killer
had beeu convenient. At any rate the
department hasted to reply, as follows :
"The Attorney General directs me to
say that he has received your silly letter,
dated 2lst iust. at Allentowu. In it vou
tender your resignation as special assis
tant to the United States attorney forthe
district of South Carolina. You know
very well that such resignation is un
necessary, for you are not, and were not

cial assistant to Mr. Melton, the Uuited
States attorney, for. upon Aniil 24th.

1883, the department of Justice sent you
notice to that effect."
But pray why was such such a silly fel
low, ever employed to help try political
cases in South Carolina?

D. P. McKinnon, one of Robeson county's
wealthiest men, as well as one of her
best citizens, has recently passed under
the rod of affliction, losing his wife aud
two oldest children within a short time
by typhoid fever. Mr. McKinnon's wife
died some weeks ago, and on last Mou -day
his oldest daughter, Miss Cnttie, a
charming young lady entering her 21st
year, was calied to meet her sainted
mother. The next day (Tuesday) Mr.
McKinnon's son, aged seven years, fol
lowed his sister to the grave. The two
children had been sick for a number of
weeks, nnd we understand the disease is
stilt raging in Mr. McKinnon's family.
He has several children left, all of young
and tender years. Mr. McKinnon lives
at Plain View, Robeson county, and is
well known thoughont this section of
the State. He is a brother of Bev. L.

about the working of the jury room than
he could learn in the court building. The

that feeling. Judge Luzenburg there

Ancient Pottery. In the fields just
above Flemming's ford on the Catawba
river, which have been iu cultivation for
more than a hundred Years. Quantities
of broken Indian pottery may be found
at this day. From fragments which we
have seen, we would suppose that these
vessels were large, probably containing
several gallons and the outrides were
curiously marked iu various patterns and
covered with hieroglyphics. This pottery
evidently marks the spot where one of
those prehistoric "burial mouuds" was
erected by a race long forgotten, iu memo
ry ot the fallen heroes of some unrecor
ded battle. The river valleys were
always selected as the site lor the erec
tion of these rude monuments, and many
of them may still be found on the banks
of the Catawba aud the Yadlriu.

New York, Nov. 26. The celebration
of the centennial of the evacuation
by the British was carried out with
faithful adherence to the published pro

ships tried a salute of twenty -one guns
followed in half an hour with the success
ful effect of all the steam whistles in the
bay aud on the rivers to make most dis
agreeable worse than imaginable, thus
emphasizing wonderful difference be
tween the navigation of 1773 and 1883.
The decorations on laud and water were
elaborate though much bedraggled stars
and stripes predominated but the flags of
nearly all the nations of the earth were
to be seen at intervals. Places of busi
ness were closed aud the entire popula
tion of Manhattan aud Long Island gave
themselves up to the enjoyment of the
patriotic occasion. Poiuts of historic
interest were surrounded by crowds aux
ious to recall the scenes of the day when
the British withdrew from the American
shores aud iudepeudence was really made
secure. Presideut Arthur and Governor
Cleveland aud staff had their headquar
ters at the Fifth Avenue hotel. Other
dignitaries from other States were also
present. Included among these were the
governors of the original thirteen States.
The display of military was fine.
