Moultrie, Ga., Oct. 22nd, 1872.
Editors Union i\ Recorder:—In your
issue of the 16th inst., we see a letter
from Colquitt without name or date,
written by an old subsersber of yours.
It vve are to take his word for it, and
we have no reason to doubt him;
for although he signed no name, yet
we know him, or at least believe we
do, we are certain of one thing, toe
knnic as well who it is as we know any
thing we don't know, but our business is
not with him in particular, although
he seems to be a little “sore-headed”
towards “Old Settler,” whom he desig
nates “Old Trout,” and says he will
inform him (old settler) “that he has
written concerning matters that he
knew but little about.” Now proba
bly this may be so but we will inform
our old friend, who by the way is an
old settler too, that we think not. We
may not have been so well posted as
we could wish, for we don’t know
everything, still we think we wrote
the truth, mostly at least, as much so
as the “common run” of “newspaper
occasiona's” are apt to do. We will
finish out the statement of our election
which our friend incog, failed" to do.
He told you of our vote for Governor,
at which we all feel proud, more than
three and a half for Smith, to Walker
one, but he did not tell you (what you
would have known long since from
“Old Settler” if some one had not
thought proper to “filch” his pack
ages from the mails or otherwise cause
them to be mislaid, (that we had two
SSarriage aud Divorce.
The alarming facility with which
divorces a vinculo matrimonii can be
obtained in nearly all the States of
the American Union, and re-marriage
of the divorced parties is * allowed, is
beginning to attract the attention of
publicists and moralists. It is begin
ning to be well considered that every
thing that weakens the force and per
manency of the marriage vow weak
ens, pari passu, the public morals.
It is amazing to consider how the
teachings of history are disregarded
in this era of so-called enlightenment.
ter themselves that they know much
of the history of ancient Greece and
Rome. Why not profit by the knowl
edge ? In this respect, as well as in
others, we are rushing forward in the
fata! footsteps of those renowned re
publics. In them divorces were sel
dom granted, at first, and private mor
als were comparatively pure. At a
later period, divorces became easy
of procurement, and corruption of
morals public and private was a con
comitant. No matter which was the
cause, and which the effect. Each
lent a helping hand to the other. We
are on the same swift down-grade. See
the last number (October) of the
Southern Magazine, published in Balti

Chauvinisms of the Preach.
In the “Atlantic Monthly" for Octo

that peculiar characteristic which it
denominates Chauvinisme. This word

It is really a slang word. But it comes

Whereupon Every Saturday remarks
that “When one wants to haves par
ticularly neat thing said about women,
the most judicious way is to get a wo
man to say it.”
The Grant organs raised a howl be
cause a majority of the popular vote in
North Carolina, on their side, elected
only three of eight Congressmen. But
in Indiana, a majority of the popular
voteelects only three (possibly four)
ol thirteen Congressmen, and all the
Grant organs call it a glorious victory
the next Legislature by a good
man, no matter which was elected,
but nevertheless this did not keep tbe
majority of the citizens from exercis
ing the “privilege of freemen,” and
casting a vote for one or the other.
The candidates were Henry Gay, and
John Tucker both good and true
men, sound in Domocratic principles,
as we veriiy believe. Tucker was elec
ted and will no doubt do all he can for
the benefit of his county and his na
tive State at large. And Gay would
have done the same if he bad been
Colquitt will not in our opinion give
half the vote for Greeley iu the Pres
idential election, that Smith received,
for more than half the Democrats are
for O’Connor and Adams. Grant will
get about the same vote that Walker
received i.e. fifty votes, for that is the
strength of the Radical party in the
county and they are all “Grantites”
the last one of them, and like Horace
Greeley about as well as “a dog loves
hickory,” which in our opinion is not
very well although we may be mistak
Our candidate for Representative
from this the Second Congressional
District, Gen. G. J. Wright will speak
at Moultrie, on the 26th instant; he is
an able, eloquent man and a suitable
person for the times. We think the
Democrats very lucky in their selec
tion of Gen. Wright; we believe he can
carry the District against Whiteley the
Radical candidate by a large ma
jority. Although the Radicals have
long held sway in parts of our District
we believe their power is broken and
their force demoralized, not for the
time being only but for eternity, (a
long time is'nt it ?) Now this is our
opinion but we may be mistaken, (?'?)
We are proud that our friend and
self agree on some points, and that we
do not entirely differ on others; he
says: “I wish we could do as well for
President as we did for Governor.” So
do we, but if we were to elect Gree
ley, would we have such a man for
President as we have elected for Gov
ernor. We think we know we would
not but still we may be mistaken. ('? ? ?)
And again our sentiments are ex
pressed by our friend concerning the
Capital. We do sincerely hope that
our Legislature elect, when assembled
will make effort, yea, strenuous effort
to bring the State capital back to Mil-
ledgeville, then we think we could
or.ee more have good and wholesome
laws enacted. Or so it seems to us
and we think wc. are not mistaken in this.
The weather still dry but pleasantly
cool; we have not had a rain here to
lay the dust in about six weeks, and
the streams are drying up; the Oc-
locknee river has just about ceased to
run, and fish, vast quantities of
fish have our fi3h-loring citizens tak
en from their native element during
this fall. We have heard it said, or
seen it stated some where that “a fish
diet was a great strengtbener of the
brain,” or something to that effect; if
so Colquitt or the citizens at least may
boast of having theirs well braced. We
had a fine little frost on the morning of
the 15th inst., which nipped potato
vines, “scorched” cotton leaves and
make all tender vegetation have a
brown appearance; we do not know
whether the appearance called brown
and the B. G. Brown are in any way
related, if so a great influence is being
exerted in our section mysteriously
We have at the present a fine sing
ing school, going on in Moultrie, and
another a short distance north of the
town, and one but a few miles south;
from all appearance, the people are be
coming very much interested in vocal
music, and at no distant day we will
be prepared to make all this “pine
wood” country resound with delight
ful strains of music. Or at least this
is our opinion but we may be mistaken
for everything is not known by
An “Old Settler.”

perhaps a little more sjnte/ul when the

The wood would fall before being
seen, and what made the mystery still
more mysterious, the room into which
the wood was falling had all its doors
and windows closed. This was in the
Soon after dark they stopped falling
and was succeeded by brickbats which
fell at short intervals throughout the
night in every room in the house. Mr.
Surrency, his wife, two grown daugh
ters, Mr. Roberts a clerk, and a Bap
tist minister by the name of Blitch
were present, and with the exception
of the minister who got upon his horse
and left, they all remained awake
the whole night. Notwithstanding
the windows and doors were tightly
closed and no opening left in any por
tion of the house, these brickbats con
tinued to fall, but although sometimes
just missing not one struck any per
Bottles and Glass take a Hand.
Soon after the bricks commenced
falling, bottles, vases, and glassware
generally commenced jumping from
their usual places, failing and break
ing. Mr. Surrency seeing the destruc
tion going on directed a negro man to
take four bottles containing kerosene
oil out of the house and place them in
yard. No sooner had ha set them
down when one flew back, fell in the
middle of the room, scattering the oil
in every direction. The w hole family
saw this. It seemed to come down
from the ceiling overhead, and indeed
everything else failing did so perpen
dicular—that is to say carne straight
down from above.
These strango antics continued with
scarcely one minutes’interruption un
til daylight Saturday morning, when
they ceased, leaving the house nearly
bankrupt in crockery and glassware

ear of corn fell in another room, strik

Lindenstruth and Mason, were staud-
ing in the front room, a chamber glass
was smashed into fifty pieces in the
centre of tho room. They were at the
time intently watching everything
visible in the room, but cone saw this
until after the vessel was broken.
The Excitement—Extra Train.
So rapidly had the news spread, and
so great was the excitement, tbe Ma
con and Brunswick Railroad dispatch
ed an extra train on Sunday. It ar
rived at Surrency about three o’clock
in the afternoon, with seventy-five
people on board.
But the ghosts, spirits, or whatever
else they might be called, did not
choose to give them any manifesta
tions, and the train left in about an
hour, taking most of them back. A
few remained, however, determined to
see into the matter. There were at
least three or four hundred persons on
the grounds during Sunday, and up to
the time our reporter left fully five
hundred had visited the place.
Other signs and (Vonders.
While all these things were going
on in the house, the kitchen depart
ment was by no means idle. Butch
er knives, pots, skillets and crockery
ware were falling around loose to the
terror and horror of the cook.

On Saturday afternoon it will be re
membered we published a brief para
graph stating that strange and super
natural manifestations had taken place
at a house at No. 6, Macon and
Passengers coming up on the train
were greatly excited about it and rep
resented that great excitement pre
vailed in that immediate neighborhood
as indeed as far distant as the reports
had reached. Determined to find out
the exact facts in regard to the matter,
we detailed a special reporter to the
scene of operations and will now lay
before our readers the
as detailed to us by him.
Taking the Brunswick train Satur
day night, iu company with Mr. Ma
son and Mr. Campbell of Macon, who
were also going down for the same
purpose, our reporter Mr. Peter Lin-
denstruth, arrived at the point of des
tination a little after 4 o’clock, Sunday
No. 6—Or Surrency.
Getting off the train they found no
one in the little place as yet up, but
going to the house of Mr. A. P. Sur
rency, they were admitted to a vacant
room the fire in which had nearly died
We may as well remark here that
the town, or Depot, of Surrency con
sists only of a station-house, one or
two places of business and the resi
dence of the gentleman from which it
takes its name. It is situated in Ap
pling county, 126 miles from Macon
and about 60 from Brunswick. Mr.
Surrency is a gentleman well-to-do in
the world and is universally regarded
as one of the most honorable citizens
of the county, and it would seem that
his house would be the iast one ghosts
would select in which to play mis
The First Brick.
Mr. Lindenstruth finding the fire
nearly out went to the wood pile to
get something to make it up. While
returning he heard a heavy thud upon
the floor of another room, aa if some
thing heavy had fallen. Thinking
some member of the family had arisen,
he paid no more attention to it. But
subsequent events convinced him that
that was the first brick thrown by the
ghosts or whatever agency is at work
on the premises, as no member of the
family had as yet got up.
What Mr. Surrency Says:
Soon after daylight Mr. Surrency
came into the room, aud after giving
his guests a hearty welcome, proceed
ed to tell from the beginning what had
taken place up’to that time.
On Friday evening, a short while
before dark, the family were greatly-
alarmed by sticks of wood flying into
the house and falling about the floor
from directions they could tell noth
ing about, aud without any human
agency tuey could see or find out.
billets ofwood around the floor.
That afternoon, or on Saturday, 10th,
they commenced again pretty much in
the same manner and doing about what
had taken place the night previously.
The family, which had now been join
ed by many neighbors, watched every
nook and corner of the house, to de
tect, and if possible to unravel the
mystery. But so quickly would pitch
ers, tumblers, books and other articles
jump from their positions and dash to
the floor the eye could not follow, and
broken fragments were the first things
seen, except in one instance, and that
was a pau of water and some books;
they were seen to start.
Chairs, shoes and clothing, were
tumbled about the house, as if the hand
of a veritable witch or unseen devil
was present. But the greatest myste
ry and most inexplicable incident of
this day was the escape of a lot of or
dinary clothes hooks from a locked bu
reau drawer. They also fell on the
floor, the drawer remaining tightly
closed, as usual. Nothing else of
special note occurred to-day. All got
quiet at 8J o’clock Saturday night.
The Operations of Sunday.
As stated above our special reporter
arrived before daybreak and heard the
story of Mr. Surrency as above related.
So soon as he got through with it he
stepped up to the
Old Family Clock,
and was about relating how rapidly
the hands had traveled around the dial
when the ghosts were about, on the
previous day. All eyes were turned
to it and much to their astonishment
the hands commenced running around
at the rate of about five hours a min
ute. It was a 30 hour weight clock,
and after seeing it run at this rate for
a short while, our reporter who is a
watchmaker by profession employed
at the store of Mr. J. H. Otto on
Fourth street, determined to at least
solve this mystery as it was directly
in his line. He stopped the clock,
carefully examined the machinery and
found it not ooly in perfect order but
nothing whatever unusual inside or
out. He could not for the life of him
see the slightest thing wrong about it.
The Magnet Theory.
It has been suggested that there
may be a large magnet about or under
the house, but magnets do not attract
wooden substances and besides, while
the clock was running at its rapid rate
Mr. L. had his watch in his pocket,
which kept on in its usual way and
was not in the least affected. He set
the clock right, when it continued to
keep correct time up to the time ho
A red hot. Brickbat.
Nothing else unusual occurred until
17 minutes before 12 o’clock, when
the performances re-opened by a pair
of scissors jumping from the tab ! e to
the floor. At that time Mr. Linden
struth was sitting in a chair when,with
out the slightest premonition a large
brickbat fell with great force right be
side him breaking in two. He imme
diately picked up a piece ol it and
handed it to Mason and both found it
hot. Then taking up the other piece
he tried two or three times to break it
by throwing it on the floor, but failed.
He then laid this second half on the
sill of a window in the room intending
to bring it home. Resuming his seat
near the front stoop, he was again
startled by the piece he had placed on
the window falling at his feet and once
more breaking into two pieces. He
did not pick it up again.
At 12 o’clock, a smoothing iron jump
ed from the fireplace aboutsix feet into
the room. It was replaced and again
jumped out. He noticed that the
iron was also hot but this may have
been heated at the fire.
A Shower of Corn.
At about this time dinner was an
nounced, when the family and many
guests walked out to the table. Soou
after being seated an ear of corn, ap
parently from the ceiling overhead,
fell between Mr. James Campbell, of
Macon, and Mrs. Surrency; striking
the floor with great force it broke in
two, scattering tbe grains all around
were found upon the floors of the resi
j dence. In one of these a few pins and
a steel pen were found. There were
various other incidents of this totally
incomprehensible mystery related to
and seea by our reporter, but enough
have already been given.
What is It ?
No one who has as yet visited the
place can give any rational theory as
to the agency which produces these
strange sights. Mr. Surrency is a
plain, old fashioned Georgia gentle
man and is greatly annoyed and dis
gusted with the whole proceedings.
He peremptorily refused auy compen
sation from any one of the two or
three hundred persons who have eaten
at his table. If they are produced by
magnets, they must be of a different
kind from any ever known.
We must leave the question to some
one else for solution.
At the time our Macon party left
people wero coming in from all direc
tions, 3nd we presume the excitement
continued to-day unabated.
