by calling up the Appropriation bill at a

tioual deceiver, who got the enemies of

which he did not intend to keen. It is
true that Mr. Garfield put the money
back .into the Treasury when he found
what a tempest of popular rage had been
created. Bnt he had previously tried to
unload it on an institution of learning,
thus showing that he claimed it as his
own property. These are the facts, and
the country will pass ou them. We don't

A Texan's Promise.
When the telegraph had done its work
iu spreading over the land the glad tid
ings of General Hancock's nomination at
Cincinnati, amid the glad answers that
Hashed hack on the wires, came one say
ing, "Texas will give one hundred thou
sand majority for the man who knew
when to stop fighting." This old Con
federate struck the keynote of the whole
campaign. He condensed in one ringing
and overpowering sentence the long cata
logue of virtues '-coin bluing "in" 'theinian
who is both a hero and a statesman.
Valoy arid political experience are, not
enough in him who is now needed to heal
the breaches in our national life. That
"knowledge comes but wisdom lingers,"
is the almost invariable rule among our
statesmen. The terse and sagacious title
lien. Hancock lias won to pre-eminence.
The words arc as inspiriug as'the immor
tal anuouncment of Nelson at Trafalgar.
They are to the knightly and sagacious
Penusylvanian both a hope and assu
rance. That he who held Cemetery Ridge
with such supreme valor could so soon
and tenderly appreciate the feeling and
rights of the men who wore the gray, will
give him the hearts of the people, and
place iu the world's record along with
Sir Philip Sidney, aud St. Martin of Tours.

t;, Dr, , Ta knee's Long Fast. "What is go
ing to be gained, by this testH a reporter
asked Dr..Gunn, one of( the physicians who
is watching Dr. Tanner, who proposes to
fast forty days, in New .York, on Sunday
last. "I think a great advantage in the
treatment of all intestinal disorders," repli
ed.Dr. ,Gunn. "If a person can fast for this
length of time we can discontinue feeding
in cases of inflammation of the stomach and
bowels, thus avoiding irritation and there
by effect cures much more rapidly. It will
also illustrate other important medical facts.
Besides, if it is generally known that a per
son can live a longer time than is popular
ly supposed in case of shipwreck, for in
stance, by exercising the will power, the
castaway will be able to hold out longer.
In such cases despair is more often the cause
of death than the actual lack of food. Final
ly, if the doctor succeeds he will demon
strate the power of niiad over matter, and
the result may lead to the knowled ge of
many psychological facts which as yet we
know nothing of."
Fatal Accident One Man Killed.
A shocking and fatal accident occurred-three
miles from the city, near Parks'
place, ou the Lawyer's road yesterday at
12 o'clock. Levi F. Furr. a hichlv re-
f.Pectable citizen of Stanly county, who
lives near the Cabarrus line, had been to
the city with a three-horse team for goods
ordered by merchants in that county. At
the point designated above he was driv
ing, while his sou-iu-law, James A Polk,
and a tenant, J. V. Ellis, were riding iu
the wagon. The horses were frightened
by the sudden appearance of a cow from
the bushes alongside of the road, and ran
off. j After going at full tilt for two or
three hundred yards, they suddenly
turned into a ploughed field. At this point
the driver was thrown from his horse and
the other two men from the vehicle. Mr.
Furr fell directly on his head, and his
neck Was broken. He lived about five
minutes but did not speak. Mr. Polk
was also thrown on his head, but escaped
'with a slight sprain iu his neck. Mr.
Ellis was stunned, but soon recovered
and -leceived no serious injuries. The
coroner was notified and held an inquest
whicfi elicited the facts recited above.
Mr. Furr was seventy years of age, and

lived. He le.iviis no smnll rliilflrAn tlm

The recent Duel.
Further Particulars Cash Talks
Coolly Warrants for His Airest
Verdict of the Jury.
The Charleston News and Courier
contains dispatches giving: further
particulars of the late duel. Col. Cash
talks very freely about the duel, giv
ing'afull account of it. He says :
'It was agreed that the signal for
firing should be given by the dis
charge of a pistol in the air,"which
was done by Mr. W. E. Johnson
Col. Shannon's second. Col. Slwiunon
fired first, about the word "one, his
' ball taking effect in the ground about
five paces in front of me, and throw
ing. the sand in my face. At the time I
thought I was shot. I fired between
words "two" and "three," there
. .' ,. . . ,
being a distinct pause between my
shot and that ot CoJ. ohannon. He
staggered and was caught by his
friend, Col. J. E. Cantey, and I am in
formed died in about five minutes.
My fiecond Mr. W. B. Sauders, in
, hed, and as well as recollect usea
these words : "My God what, more
could we ask." I was taken from the
grun j by my seCoud, and my friend,
Mr. v ariug.
1 Col. Cash is represented as speak-
ing without the slightest perceptible
excitement. Dr. Lee, of Darlington,
was present at tlie duel as surgeon for
Cash, and Dr. Burnett, of Camden, as
! surgeon for Shannon. V. E. Johnson,
ghanlons second, was from Camden,
, . c . r n , , o A
and W. B. Sanders,. Cash s second,
from humter countv. Hacli ot tne
principals was attended by three
friends upon the field, the friends of
Col. Cash, being A. ; H. Waring of
Florence, G. J. McCown of Darling
ton and M. L. Sanders of Sumter.
The friends of Coli Shannon were
Thomas Ancrum, J.jM. Cantey and
AlDj1 Goodwin of Camden. After
the duel Col. Shannon's body was
taken to Camden. It is said that
that when he was first shot he stood
still for a moment, exclaimed "Oh,
God l" and; half turning around, fell
and . was caught by his second. In
aai'tiob ; 'to the, friends and seconds of
he parties, a number of other, persons !
. 1 ! i
witnessed the dnel The pistols used
by Cash were his own, and those osed
by Shannon are said to ha ve been the
property of Col. Alfred Rhett.
Col. Cash went to Darlington connty
on Sunday and spent the night with
his attendant? at the house of Mr. R;
D. Lee, within a' few miles of Du
Boss bridge. The duelling ground
is about half way between Camden
and Cash's Depot, and near the line
dividing Kershaw and Darlington
Col. Cash returned home on Mon
day. It is rumored that he sent word
to the sheriff of Darlington county
yesterday that he need not come to ar
rest him, as he would go down when
ever he got a note from him.
There is a general expression of
horrible reeret at the duel and its
atal result, and jt is rumored that
another meeting between Col. Shan
non's son and W. B. Cash, Col. Cash's
sonis contemplated, and that there
was an agreement between the Shan
nons father and son, that if the father
fell in the fight, the son should take
up the quarrel.
At Cheraw universal regret is ex
pressed at the sad termination of the
difficulty at Bennettsville, and in
Marlboro there is much feeling against
Col. Cash. At this place and in the
county I am informed that there is
great excitement and a feeling of gen
eral indignation against Col. Cash.
Coroner Goodale held an inquest
yesterday and to-day. The verdict of
the jury was that, "from the evi
dence brought before us, Wm. Shan
non came to his death from a pistol
shot wound, said pistol beiugfired by
E. B. Cash." Corouer Goodale im
mediately issued a warrant for the
arrest of Col. Cash, directed to Sner-
iff Doby, who has transmitted the
same to the sheriff of Chesterfield
county for execution. 5
How She Found Ojit.
It was one of the most provoking
and unaccountable things ever heard
of. Lina Rivers had two lovers, and.
for the life of her she couldnt' tell
which of them she loved best, or if
she loved either. But if it were per-
plexing to Lina, it was doubly so to
the two candidates for her favor, Har
ry Byrne and William Goodwin, who,
however willing to give each other
fair play, were as much in earnest as
men are apt to be in such matters.
To do Lina justice, she distributed
her smiles very equally between
them, she was always willing to talk
to both, aud apparently as happy
with one as the other. But when
either urged her to give him a decid
ed answer to his suit, "She didn't
know. She would think it over, and
give him an answer next week." But
when next week came she was unde
cided as ever. m
Thus matters went on for some
time but it couldn't last forever.
'My dear Lina, you promised that
you would tell me to-day urged Har
ry, whose stock of patience was well
Lina's sunny face became instantly
overshadowed at those grave, earn
'How can I tell, you Harry when
I don't know myself?"
'You know if you love me, Lina.
And so bitter as the knowledge is, I
am compelled to believe that you do
not, and never can."
"But I do love you, Harry !" re
torted Lina almost ready to cry at
the tender reproach convpyed by
these words. "That to say I like
you very much indeed.'
'But do you like me the best?
that is what I want to know.'
'Yes, I like you best, now."
