The Negro Soldiers In Columbus.
We noticed a few dsys since the transfer of a body of
negro troops from Augusta to Columbus, Ga., the
white garrison from the latter place having been re-
Ueved. The foUowing extracts from the Columbus
Bun and Times show that they are keeping up the
reputation they had previously acquired in Augusta
aud elsewhere. The Sun of the 11th inst. says:
“One of the first ladies of thi9 city was going to her
home, on Front street, yesterday afternoon stout two
o'clock. In her hand was held a portmonnaie con
taining some eighty dollars, which she was swinging
by the chain. She was met by a negro soldier, to
whom she paid no attention. In passing, the scoun
drel seized the portmonnaie and ran a short distance,
and, turning around, gave her a most insulting smUe,
threw the i>urtmonnaie upon the ground and walked
oil'. The lady, thinking the negro intended to insult
her, picked up the book and iouud the money gone.
She instantly raised an alarm for assistance, but before
gentlemeu from the adjacent houses could reach the
spot the negro had disappeared. Friends soon repre
sented the case to the lieutenant iu command.
“His action in the premises was good. He promised
that he would use every means to detect the soldier
thief, and that, if he could be identified, he should be
punished. He also stated that every citizen should
protect himself from insult, and his premises from
“On Thursday afternoon a lady on the upper part of
Church street was bitterly cursed by one of these sol
diers, when she had not said one word to him.”
In the same paper of tbe 13th inst. we find the fol
“An affair occurred yesterday afternoon about six
o’clock which all regret, but which could not have
been avoided. From what we can learn from wit
nesses, both white and block, it seems that two young
men were going down Broad street, when directly op
posite the store of A. Crane Hz Co,, a few doors below
the burnt district on Broad street, they were met
by a negro soldier, who to oil appearances purposely
ran against one of them.
“The gentleman remarked, ‘you had better run over
me, ’ or words to that effect, wheu the negro commenced
cursing him most bitterly for a *son of a bitch,’ a ‘ras
cal,’ and using the most insulting language. The gen-
tieinau did his best to avoid the difficulty, telling the
negro to go away, aud walking off slowly. At last the
negro asserted he had put hundreds like him under
the ground aud started to draw a bayonet, when the
gentleman shot him three times. The negro with
bayonet in his hand and still cursing tottered back to
the shanties on the comer. He was carried to the
barracks and, we are informed, died in a tew miuutes.
• The gentleman who fired the shot is alleged to be
Mr. Cooper Lindsay, one of our tost and bravest young
men. He, fearing the vengeance of the troops, fled,
pursued by a squad of the negro soldiers, one of whom
tired at him at Gunby’s comer. This negro was ar
rested aud carried by the civil authorities to the guard
bouse, but was afterwards conducted to the bai racks by
Mayor Wilkins. Mr.*L. escaped, and so did the gentle
man who was with him, said to be Mr. Hub Ruther
ford. Two negro soldiers came to the scene of shoot
ing with muskets, cursing furiously, but were ordered
back by otficers. They obeyed, but weut back in the
same style, aud one tried to .strike a white man with a
musket but was prevented.
A collision between the whites and blaeks at one time
was grertly feared, as there was much excitemeut. The
officers, however, ordered all the colored troops to the
b irracks. The ytticers used their best endeavors to
avoid ail difficulty, and promised that citizens should
“A gentleman, Mr. Sol. Crew, while walking along
quietly at Duran’s corner, after the shooting, was
knocked down by a musket in the hands of a negro
soldier. Afterwards several shots were fired from the
barracks in Bank’s building.
“In the excitemeut Mr. B. Ledbetter, while in the
crowd, was accidentally shot iu the leg by a glancing
ball. The shot was not from a negro.
“The negroes were confined to the barracks last
night, and after seven o’clock all was quiet.
“The officers of the garrison here, have, we believe,
tried to avoid difficulties and have everything go oil
pleasantly ; but a large majority of the negro soldiers
have done all in their power to provoke trouble, and
have sought difficulties.
“We presume tlie affair will to investigated this
morning, und that both geutlemeu will appear.
“ Since writing the above we learn that Maj. War
ner, formerly of the Naval Iron Works, who was walk
ing on the opposite side of the street, was shot in tlie
leg by a ball fired from one of the windows of the bar
racks in Banks’s building. His leg was amputated
above the knee a short time after, by Drs. Foard,
Stanford aud others. These shots were perfectly in
T1IE CHURCH MILITANT.
Mr. Secretary Stanton Espouses the Cause
of One of the Parties—A Member Ousted
at the Point of the Bayonet.
Under the ruling of a recent order from the War De
partment, which gives possession of certain Methodist
Church property “to those ministers and members
who remain with and act under tfie ecclesiastical juris
diction governing said churches prior to 1861,” the
church edifice at Hamilton, in this county, was on
Sunday last so disposed of by military authority.—
Since the formation in 1861, of what is known as the
Staunton Conference, the church at Hamilton has been
occupied by ministers belonging to that body—there
being none others, until recently, to contest its use.—
Sunday morning last being a regular appointment of
the Rev. Mr. Waugh of the Staunton Conference, an
appointment for the same hour was also made by Rev.
Mr. Ross of the Baltimore Conference, and a courier
dispatched to Hamilton on Saturday to demand the
keys of the House, which was refused.
With the rising of the Sabbath sun, a file of twelve
or fifteen armed soldiers proceeded to the scene of ac
tion, arriving on the ground about 8y 2 o’clock. A con
siderable congregation had already assembled in the
church to hear Mr. Waugh, who had not entered the
house. He was waited on by the officer in charge of
the squad, and notified that he would not be allowed
to fill his appointment, and the house turned over to
Mr. Ross, whereupon the former gentleman retired,
and the most of the assembled congregation with him.
Another congregation then assembled, and Mr. Ross
fulfilled his appointment. A considerable number of
persons had gathered together, in anticipation, no
doubt of a disturbance but uo disturbance took place
beyond that we we have stated. These are the facts,
as given us by one who was present.
As the order from Washington leaves the final title
to the church property to to decided by the Courts,
we presume the question will ere long be judicially
settled. Verily, if Christ’s kingdom on earth don’t
sutler, it won’t be the fault of some of His chosen
The Mexican Question.—The Paris correspondent
of the London Times gives a minute account of the
circumstances under which the Emperor Napoleon
dispatched M. Salliard on a special mission to Mexico.
He was hurried to the Palace, when the Emperor said
he wanted him to set out without delay for Mexico,
with a message from him to Maximilian. He was to
tell Maximillian that he (Napoleon ) considered that he
had fulfilled all the obligations imposed on him, and
that the time had arrived when Maximillian must
depend upon his own resources, without the help of
the French army. M. SaJJiUrd acked for some creden
tials, but the Emperor observed that there was no ne
cessity for any documents—all he had to do was to
represent to Maximillian the conversation he had just
had, and that would suffice. He recommended M.
Salliard, moreover, to lose no time in setting out for
Mexico, but to depart by the first steamer.
The Times correspondent says :
“Napoleon never does anything without some good
and substantial reason. What that reason is, in the
present instance, in sending an Envoy to Mexico,
with only verbal instructions, he, himself, only
Arrival of Emigrants.—The Charleston Courier
of the 8th inst, chronicles the arrival, per the steamer
Quaker City, on her last trip, of one hundred and
sixty-five German emigrants—including, men women
They will proceed at once to form a settlement on
the plantations of Messrs. Weldon aud Dayton, in
Christ Church Parish. It was through the influence
of theee gentlemen that the emigrants were persuaded
to select South Carolina for a permanent residence.
They all are steady, industrious people; and the adults
have had more or less experience in agricultural mat
ters. At Christ Church Parish they will give their at
tention to the raising of vegetables and cotton. This
is the first really large installment of emigrants that
has arrived at Charleston since the discussion of thy
new system of labc* has commenced.
African Financiering.—The Indianapolis Herald
says the dignitaries of the Vfrican church in that city
some time ago purchased a lot. on Tennessee street,
ostensibly for the purpose of erecting a church upon
it. As soon as it was known in the neighborhood, it
created a lively sensation among the property holders.
The real estate malcontents growled “consumedly.”
The Africans laid low and kept “dark,” untd finally
the neighbors made up a bonus of $1,000, to be do
nated to the church if they would buUd it in some'
other place. The proposition was accepted, and the
church will to built over the canal It also transpired
that the Tennessee street operation was only a shrewd
bit of financiering to secure a liberal contribution
from the white folks to assist in building the church.
SAVANNAH, GEORGIA, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16. 1866.

Georgia Military Institute.
From information received from Milledgeville, the
citizens of. Fort Valley, Ga., are making- % bid for the
transfer of the Georgia Military Institute to their
place, which is quite favorable to the State in her
They propose to give the State one hundred and
fifty acres of land (equivalent to one thousand dollars),
beautifully located, with a constant stream of water
running through it, with two fine springs near the
site ; there being plenty of wood on the land to fur
nish the Institute for several years.
Also, five thousand dollars in cash, which is to be
paid in by the citizens, in four installments ; first
payment April 1st, and the last January 1st, 1869.
Further, allowing tbe State, through the Governor,
to appoint one-half of the Board of Trustees, and they
adopting all rules and regulations as have already
governed the school, so far as practicable.
The State only giving, by transfer, the charter with
its privileges, as well as tlie library, chemical appara
tus, etc., the most of which was destroyed at this
place by Sherman’s army, with the proceeds of the
sale of land and the debris of the old school at Ma
rietta, probably worth from five hundred to a thousand
dollars, which it is proposed shall go In to build up
the new school.—Macwi, Mt^seiujer.
Tlie Constitutional Amendment.
Mr. Fessenden’s speech in the Senate on Wednes
day, in reply to Mr. Sumner, shows the diversity of
views in Congress even among the Radicals. The
Sumner men propose to get along by law, without the
Constitution, and the other wing propose to amend
the Constitution in order to secure laws to their liking.
Of each it should to said, “Unstable as * water, thou
shalt not excel. 1 ’
Mr. Fesseuden sustained the President, and trod
on Mr. Sumner’s toes when he said,
“1 presume Uo man who looks at the question dis-
passionatelyfand calmly, would contend that those so
recently slaves are fit to exercise the right of suffrage.
If we passed a resolution of that kind, the result would
to that the slave States must either admit all, or else
they must make a rule of exclusion that would cut off',
not only all the colored population, but a very large
portion of the own white population from the exercise
of the right of suffrage, and tor a time it would create
an oligarchy—the power of a few.”
Mr. Fessenden also stated the objections to the
proi)08ition abolishing distinction on account of color.
Connecticut had refused to adopt a similar propo
sition. Wisconsin Laid done the same. The Western
States seemed to to opposed to it, and New York
made distinction on account of color. There were
but two propositions left, he said, to base representa
tion upon votes, or to report what is now before the'
Senate, and Mr. F. preferred the one before the other.
—AVio York Express.
—A few nights since a gang of New York theives
took passage on a Brooklyn ferry boat, put out the

—An experiment tried by an eminent physician of
St. Petersburg, during the prevalence of the cholera
there several years ago, |serves to illustrate the influ
ence of the mind upon the body. He obtained of the
authorities two criminals who had been condemned
to death, to do with them as he saw fit One of these
convicts was made to sleep in a bed in which, as he
was told, a man died with the cholera tbe night be
fore—although such was not the fact. After a restless
night, the criminal was taken with all tbe symptoms
of cholera, aud uied of the disease, declaring that he
had caught it from the bed—a victim to his own fears.
The other was made to sleep on a bed wherein a man
hail died a few hours .previously of the fatal disease.
The fact, however, was unknown to the occupant of
the tod, who arose in the morning refreshed by his
sleep, remaining iu perfect health.
The Way they Treat Horse Thieves in Memphis.
—A week ago, last Friday, a gaug of notorious horse
thieves, headed by one Bowling, who resides about
three miles outside Memphis, on the Germantown
plank road, entered the town of Saltillo, and were im
mediately arrested* by the citizens, who, upon consul
tation,determined upon ridding the community ofsuch
ruffians, and in a short time thereafter, Bowling, with
liis six confederates, were ordered to be shot. This
sentence was carried into immediate execution, aud
these bad men thus expiated the folly of their mani
Extraordinary November Heat in Australia.—
Australian papers make mention of sudden and in
tense heat in the middle of November, affecting the
health of very many persons. The Melbourne Age
says that at Beechwui^h, several animals, principally
cats aud dogs, died of sunstroke. On the 21st, the
thermometer at Adelaide reached 113.5 deg. in the
shade and 155.6 deg. in the sun, as shown by the reg
ister at the observatory.
Lacon Out-Laconed. — “You tot” is * strong
phrase in California, signifying strong affirmation.
The following story is told of that region. A burglar
at midnight climbed to a chamber window, and cau
tiously oj>eued it. Tbe occupant, chancing to be
awake, crept softly to the window, and just as the
robber’s face appeared, pressed against it the cold,
smooth muzzle of a revolver, with the injunction,
“ you get.” “ You bet,” replied the robber dropping
to the ground and running for his life. Tliare is no
more pithy dialogue on record.
Blessings.—Thack ry tells of an Irish woman tog

God follow yon all your life”—but when he only pulled
out his Bnuff box, immediately added—“and never

NEW SKIRT POH ’SB
The Great Invention of the Age
T HIS Invention consists of Duplex (or twoj Ellptic
Pare Refined Steel Springs, ingeniously braided
tightly and firmly together, edge to edge, making the
toughest, most flexible, elastic and durab’e -Spring
ever nsed. They seldom bend or break, like the sin
gle Springs, and consequently preserve their perfect
and beautiful shape more thantwice as long as any
Single Spring Skirt that ever baa or can be made.
The wonderful flexibility and great rumfort and
pleasure to any lady wearing the Duplex Elliptic Skirt
will be experienced particularly in all crowded Assem
blies, Operas, Carriages. Railroad Cars, Church Pews,
Arm Chairs, for Promenade and House Dress, as the
Skirt can be folded when in use to occnpy a small
place as easily and conveniently as a Silk or Muslin
A lady having enjoyed the pleasure, comfort and
great convenience of wearing the Duplex Elliptic
Steel Spring Skirt for a single (hy will never after
wards willingly dispense with their use. For children,
misses and young ladies they are superior to nil oth
The Hoops are covered with 2 ply double twisted
thread and will wear twice as long aa the single yarn
covering which is nsed on mil Single Steel Hoop Skirts.
The three bottom rods on every Skirt are also Double
Steel, and twice or double covered to prevent tlie cov
ering from wearing off the roda when dragging down
stairs, stone steps, Ac., which they are constantly
euhject to when in use.
All are made of the new and elegant Co. ded Tapes,
and are the best quality in every part, giving to the
wearer the most graceful and perfect shape possible
and are unquestionably the lightest, moot desirable,
comfortable and economical Skirt ever made.
