ren, six sons and two daughters. W. H. S. Harris, commander of C. W. Boyd camp, U. C. V., at Jonesville, was born in Union county, in 1839, youngest child of S. P. and Sophia Harris, also natives of that county. His father was the son of Samuel Harris, a native of Virginia, who came to South Carolina soon after the Revolution, became prominent in the affairs of his county which he served as sheriff, and married Sophia, daughter of Dr. Thomas Hancock, a native of London, England, who survived shipwreck in coming to the United States, and in South Carolina became widely noted as a specialist. Commander Harris left his occupation as a mercantile clerk at Union, at the beginning of the war, and enlisted, April 13, 1861, as a private in the Johnson Rifles, a company of the Fifth South Carolina volunteers.

Suspensions at the North. Philadelphia, Nov. 23. --The Banks of Trenton, N. J., have suspended. Baltimore, Nov. 23. --Samuel Harris & Sons, bankers, have suspended. It is understood that it will be only temporary.
here is in consequence comparatively little paper offering on the street, for the reason that almost anything that will go on the street at this time, will be taken by the Banks in the regular course of business. The nominal rates for first paper on the street to-day are 9@12 per cent. per annum, but anything but strictly first-class paper is altogether unsavable. The community here was considerably startled this morning by the announcement that the old and respectable banking-house of Samuel Harris & Sons had been obliged to succumb to the pressure of the times, and stop payment.

The stock operations this week have been heavy, the aggregate value of the transactions at the Board being about $600,000, but for nearly all the principal secu

Ever since the night of the robbery officers Seal and Jenkins have been unremitting in their efforts to ferret out the perpetrators of the deed, and after arrest for nearly every other day they finally succeeded, on Thursday night last, in taking the whole party into custody and lodging them in jail. The following are the names of the negroes who were arraigned on Saturday morning before the Mayor: James, Charles and Samuel Harris, free negroes; Henry, slave of Mrs. Tinsley; George, slave of Reuben A. Lacy, and Henry, slave of Mrs. Fanny Wingo. A great deal of testimony was given as to when, where and how the robbery was committed, but only one witness testified positively who were the guilty parties, and that was one of the prisoners, named George, slave of Mr. Lacy, who made the following statement: Last Monday, one week ago, a bargain was made between himself and the negroes named above (save Sam Harris) to ro
