[From the N. Y. Times.)
It seems the report we had that a white
man in Georgia had sawed off both the legs
of a negro to prevent his running away, is
not true. The person accused of the deed
(who is a doctor) has [sent us a letter expo

The authorities iu North Carolina have also
explicitly denied the innumerable reports
which have been sent North that negroes
were being hung and shot and stabbed whole

tales which came for a while fast and num
berless, from the South,- about unparalleled
and fiendish cruelty to black men, have been
The friends of the negro are doing him in
finite harm by the circulation of such false

for a few days, but their contradiction de
stroys faith, not only in the men who send
them, but in the really truthful complaints
concerning the treatment of the colored peo

places, suffering many wrougs at the hands
of the superior race, but these will never be
corrected by the publication of sensational
A Snake Carried in a Lady’s Crino
line.—One day last week a party of young
folks, male and female, in the township of
Frankliu, went to the huckelberry rack, a
distance of about eight miles from this neigh
borhood. After reaching the rock the day
was spent in the usual way—by picking ber
ries aud wandering over the vast plain of
rock. Evening came, and the parties returned
to their homos.
One young lady after reaching her resi
dence and performing her customary work
about the house, repaired to her room to re
tire for the night, aud, upon undressing, what
did she discover, nicely entwined around her
waist, between her crinoline and under gar
ments, but a snake fully twenty inches in
length. As might be expected, on making
such a discover}-, the lady's feeliDgs can be
better imagined than described.
She gave the alarm, when other inmates
of the house came to the room and dispatch
ed his snakesliip. It turned out to be one of
the spotted adder species, which is very nu
merous on the rock. Now, how did the rep
tile manage to get in that position ? The
only way such can be accounted for is this:
Sometime during the day the young wo
man must have been sitting down on the
rock, and the broad skirts now worn might
possibly have covered the snake, which in
its endeavors to escape, between the gar
ment, aud so worked itself up to the waist
unfelt by the party. She stales that several
times during the day aud evening, she felt a
sort of griping sensation about her body, hut
delicacy in company constrained her to bear
it rather than attempt to ascertained the
cause. — Huntingdon Journal.

agrees with the views of the Secretary of the

speech of Mr. Harlan made some time since
