' !B'ot if Tn.iMrnta RfonhUcart trans theV mnst takfl the eon sentiences. ; It has been shown that, hHe''Mr. Gar- field very artfully contrived to appear on lot!t sides of the question, so as to be able to fix up a plausible defense for ! use ilmWnnhU r.nnttnt-itfk. h wa. in rnli- ty, the most influential agent in carrying the' measure. through. u He had it in his power to defeat the bill at either of sev eral stages through 'which it progressed toward consumationi' Bnt so far from defeating it, he made sAre bf its success by calling up the Appropriation bill at a night session, when many' of its oppo nents, having been assured that it would not be called up, had gone home and in their beds. The record makes Mr. Gar field appear in the bad light of an iuten tioual deceiver, who got the enemies of the steal out of the "way by a promise 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 believe any man who helped along the back salary grab, or made any pretense of a right to the money thus dishonestly voted, will ever le elected President of the United States by any party. Wash. l'it. . ; 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. Rul. Observer. As showing the temper of the times. the Raleigh .Observer records the follow injr: The Empire State of the South always does things oh a 'grand scale. After the people there had expended all their euer gies in ratifying Hancock's nomination, they pressed the heavenly bodies iuto pa triotic service, i An immense meteor was seen iu Macon, and it went over into Hancock county and exploded.

Mr. Smyth, United States min - ister to Liberia, in a recent dispatch to the department 01 state, writes in giuwiug icnua of ?he land and of the lopportunities which are afforded settlers. Every family on ar riving in Liberia receives from the govern ment twenty-five acrei of the finest land and each individual emigrant ten acres. Competence is in the reach of all. But lit tle foreign bu-iness is done compared with what might be. American tobacco, cotton goods, salt, provisions and improved agri cultural machinery are jn demand. At pres ent" the, trade of the wdst coast is in the hands of the English. But a seacoast of 500 miles,' with an indefinite extent of fertile back ccmntry, inhabited by millions of peo ple, is at' the command j of American enter prise.

"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 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, iV:.w. 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 counties. - 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 t 9 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 nigh exhausted. Lina's sunny face became instantly overshadowed at those grave, earn est words. '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." ThAn whv not nromise to become .f 9i - my wile. 'Because when I am with William and he talks to me the same way, I . X think I ifke him the best.' In spite of his pain and perplexity Harry could not help smiling at this J . . - natve confession. - But you cannot marry both of us, dear child.' 'Of course not said Lina, blush- ini rosily at tub practical application A j Jiu.. w,f th;ntrm of her words i - but why can t things Uif! " . J . ,b go on just as they nave oeen t. inat is what I should like .4? or a moment Harry stood in si- - " lent perplexity. : At last,! quite de spairing of making" her comprehend nim, he said "I am convinced that you will nerer entertain ' a warmer feeling lor me than friendship ; and that the wisest thing for me to" do is to seek in absence the peace that for- getfulness can' alone give! roe. 1 God bless yon, dear lana, and make you "sppy wiin uie man wuo 13 lor- unate enough to win you.1 ,' 'He won't go he loves me too fond ly,' thought Lina And yethe sound of the closing door fell heavilv oh her heart. w 'So Mr. Byrne is fairly off at last; said a lad? acmiainbtnnA fn Mn. m J . . next day. "I just met blm on his way to the station to catch thr Wo o'clock train for Cliffdale. Goodwin is going to be the happy man, I j?ee. Now I always thought your choice would fall on Harry.' j I don't know that I'm obliged to have either said Lina, laughing, but with an Indescribable sinking at the How little do women show of their real thoughts and feeling I Never did Lina rattle away morel carelessly aud gaily than after receiving this unexpected news. J Just before dinner, as Lina was sitting alone with her mother, in burst her brother James. " 'There has been a terrible accident mother 1 The two o'clock train to ri:M-i :-t 1 ; ' 1 vnuuaic iau uuo a mggage train ana 1 1 1 1 .. j . Kiiiea 1 don t know how many ! There's an extra train coiner to their" relief ; and they want all the linen bandages and cordials that can be had.' i Away bustled kind-hearted Mrs. Rivers, to get whatever the house af forded, leaving poor Lina with a dumb-horror in her set eyes and pal- id face that no language could ex press. Going to her room, she hur riedly put on her things but how she hardly knew. 's 'Killed she moaned, as she hurried towards the station ; and ;it is I who sent him to his death f Ob, Harry ! Harry ! now indeed I know; but ah, too late : . i As Lina turned the corner of the station in her blind haste, she ran di rectly into the arms of a gentleman who was coming from an opposite di rection. - 1 ' . 'Lina?' .. Lina gave a wild cry ofjoy, as she twnvu IUVV AMWW VTA ovunwt 'Oh, Harry I can it be you?' she gasped, 'I thought you were in the train, and killed !' j 'I was five minutes too late for the train, Lina.' - As a matter of course, Harry went home with Lina and curiously enough he chose the longest route he could have taken.
