Rhootinc. Affair.—We are pained to
learn thnt on last Wednesday or Thurs
day Mr. Manly £. Sparks, a clever and
respected citizen, residing in tho Eastern
part of thoconnty, was shot and painful
ly wounded by a negro fellow, whose
name we did not get. Tho facta, ns we
get them, are ab:,ut these :
It seems on the evening previous to the
shooting Mr. Sparks had some sharp
words with the negro nlxint watering his
stock, but this passed off. The next
morning Mr. Sparks observed that the
t>oy had not gone to liis labor, and, at a
late hour in the morning, went to the ne
gro's house to ascertain the cause. Words
produced words until the negro drew a
pistol and fired at Sparks, the ball taking
effect in the bone of his hips and ranging
downward. Mr. Sparks fell and as he
lay upon the ground the negro fired
again at him, the bail striking in the
gronnd by bis side. By this time a ne
gro woman on the place had got to Mr.
Sparks. She assisted him up and , aided
him to his house. Before they had reach
ed the door the negro fired upon them
again, with a double-barreled gun, load
ed with small shot. But ono of the shot
took effect on Mr. Sparks, while six or
eight struck the woman, however, with
bnt little injuiy. They hurried on and
as they entered the door of Mr. Sparks’
house, the negro again fired with the
gun, and the ball with which it was load
ed, entered the door by the side of them.
The negro seemed bent on taking the life
of Mr. S. and no doubt would have
needed had it not been for tho woman.
The negro made his escape and has not
yet been captured.

Cannot the clergymen of Americas do
something similar to this.* There is an
alarming amount of drunkenness ( in this

prospects for a glorious temperance cam

noble work and perseverance unto the
end are all that is necessary to ensure
success. Let us work without ceasing,
then, and show that the obligation we
have taken is but the invincible deter

the rage throughout the State, it is oar
candid opinion that Americua is justly
entitled to one. Every youth who has
been the recipient of a “kick” from the
opposite sex, is eligible to membership,
and the greater the number of “kicks”
the higher the estimation in which the
recipient is to be held by his fellows, and
he is entitled to the presidency thereof.
Each member must place at the disposal
of the club all love letters, rings, memen
toes, locks of hair, etc., which may have
been exchanged between him and his fe
male admirers, and must also give a des
cription of the interesting scenes, parting
and all other little episodes of
interest. Excellent material can be
found here, and we hope these interested
will meet and organize.
Application for a charter must be
made to the Grand Slipper Club of Co
lumbus. The members take an oath of
secresy on a fair maiden’s slipper, kept
for that purpose. The following are
among the rules and regulations.
1. No one can become a member unless
he can produce satisfactory evidence
that, after making all honorable efforts,
he has lioen rejected by at least one un
appreciative young lady.
2. That no member shall be eligible to
office unless he lias been rejected by sev
3 and 4 provides for the reception of
little tokens of affection, letters, etc.
5. In case several members should
present photographs and letters of the
same lady, all hereby obligate themselves
to entertain no unkind feelings toward
each other because some epistles are
more gushing, or some photographs pre
sent a sweeter smile, the members look
ing with great condescension upon the
natural frailties ol women.
8. In future, at all entertainments,
members are required to maintain a dig
nified silence regarding Love towards all
ladies who have been reported to the
12. Any member suspected of sleeping
with a piece of wedding cake under his
head in hopes of dreaming of his future
spouse, shall be ignominiously expelled.

The Brunswick Appeal.—A friend has
handed us a copy of tho last number of
this paper in which appears an article
reply to a notice.of ours some weeks sine
stating that several citizens who left this
place last winter to take *np their abode
in the sand-fly town of Brunswick, had
returned, “ sadder and wiser men.” W<
meant no reflection upon that little town,
but simply to record a fact that hod ac
tually occurred. Yon must not let your
angry passions rise bro. Smith, but keep
as cool as the circumstances of the case,
and the annoyance of those sandflies you
have to contend against, will allow yon.
Sally Laban, colored, reports that
Martin Cox, colored, formerly belonging
to Dr. Hardwick, of this city, three
months ago left with her to be nursed
and cared for a very bright mulatto male
child, with a promise to provide for its
maintenance. This will be remembered
as the miscegenation case, of which we
took notice at the time. The police, in
stead of promptly arresting the negro
and his guilty white paramour, let the
matter alone, and now the festive Cox,
feeling secure in parts unknown, fails to
fulfil his promise. Sallie, feeling that
she has “got her foot in it,” applies to
the Ordinary for help. We wonld sug
gest that the unnatural and heartless
mother be hunted up, and compelled to
take care of her offspring.
BSL It is absurd for a man who has
goods to sell to settle himself and stock
in a house and then wait for customers
to drop in at their leisure to buy, without
advertising. Such people are not ener
getic enough to keep a new stock on hand,
and are always complaining of dull times.
Montgomery & Shaw will verify this as 1
sertion, for they are continually receiv
ing new articles of merchandise, and
their friends are immediately mode
aware of it by their advertisements they
seldom keep articles longer than ten days.
Now, ladies, ye who have charge
of the catiug department at home, when
ever you want something nice for your
table send word to our energetic young
friend, John Shaw, and if he has it not,
give him a little time and he will certain
ly gfct it. Try him once, and you will be
much pleased, that yon will ever after

was driven daring the hot months by

Qcrr It.—On leaving the Methodist
Church last Sabbath morning after divine
service, onr attention was called by a
lady to a mass of filth on the steps deposit
ed there by some young men who it seems
assembles at the church every Sabbath
morning and evening smoking their
cigars aud chewing tobacco. They take
their position on the steps and puff their
cigars in the very face of the ladies as
they enter the church, and spit their
nasty filth on the ste^p in great pools,
so much so, that it is impossible for the
ladies to pass up aud down the steps
without getting their dresses soiled. In
behalf of the ladies we call upon the of
ficial members of that church to take such
steps in the matter as will prevent such
conduct in the future. Let some officer
take his position on the steps and remain
there until the services in the chnrch
commences, and if lie sees any
smoking or spitting on the steps, make
him leave. Such conduct should not be
tolerated. If men are obliged to smoke
and chew tobacco before entering the
House of God, let them do-it elsewhere,
but in tho name of all that is sacred don’t
in either, in the vestibule or on the
steps of the chnrch. %
The Last Cotton Crop.
The New 1’ork Commercial and Finan
cial Chronicle says we are now so near
to the close of the cotton year that an
estimate can be made of the total crop
with tolerable accuracy. This it ven
tures upon os follows :
Receipts at the ports up to May
Receipts from May 28 to Sept.
1 [last year 85,000.) 170,000
Overland direct to mills this year 227,000
Total crop, bales 3,237,000
£5?* The City Father* and other officers
of Charleston, (all Rads., of course,) are
having a little war among themselves on
certain questions in reference to the pay
ment of the Sheriff’s advertising bills,—
that functionary desiring to be relieved
of the unpleasant duty of paying the
printer. In a discussion that took place
the snbject, in Council meeting, the
Sheriff, who was present, pronounced the
statements of one of the Aldermen “false
and base as hell.” Similar remarks were
made, pro and con, throughout the dis
cussion, which ended in the Sheriff com
ing out best man and gaining his point.
