A suicide, under very peculiar cir
cumstancca, occurred at Hunters
ville, Mecklenburg county, Sunday
about 1 o'clock, the particulars of
which we cannot get in full. Mr. J
R Nash, who lives three miles from
Huntersville, was in the city and I
tells the following distressing report '
or the hornble afl;iir ;
"Mr. Sam Silvenear, a native
Georgian, came to IluntersviPe Sun
day morning by private conyeyance
from Charlotte. He put up at
Holdbrook's stable and told his
driver thtt if he did not return by 2
o'clock that he should go back to
Charlotte without him,
'He went direct from the livery
stable to the church, where he sat
down upon the steps for a few
minutes. From the church
steps he went into the grave
yard, and after a few moments
survey of his surroundings, he
kneeled upon th grave of his sister,

drew from his pockets two revolvers.
He held one in each hand, placed
the muzzles on each t ern phi and
pulled the triggers. He died in

The Game Saturday.
A good game it was Saturday
afternoon between Forest Hill and
Concord at the former's grounds.
Up to the seventh inning the down
town boys held the Forest Hill boys
at a score of 7 to 0, but owing to the
weakness of Fisher, who is making
a great reputation as a pitcher, and
an error made by Cochrane 0 runs
were ecored in the seventh by the
opposing team. It was a good game
throughout and one of the closest
games played this season. When
the close came Forest Hill scored 11
and Concord 8.
Another game is in progress this
afteinon and it will not be a walk"
over for either team. Salisbury or j
Charlotte could or would, not come..
