The record IIKDAHTOWN, OA., JUNE 23, 1877. Mr. Ami It. Wstson, oily editor of tiio Silicon Telegraph, died on tho 20th iustnuU Mr. WaUnu woe born in Loudon county, Virginia, in 1887. During tho wnr ho went to Atlanta, and after aororal change* in business ho bocauio connected with tho Daily Southern Coufwloracy, whore ho soon nttraatod attention by bis vigorous and pithy writings. From Atlanta lie wont to Maoon, and for I ho last four yoara has boon city odilor of the Telegraph. Ho married, while in At lanta, Mis,; Francis Latimer, a sister of Sirs. Judge John Collier. All the counties but throe liavo boon honrd from. Tho majority for uouvontiou is 8,67fi. The Indians in Orogon aro on llie wnr path. A dispatch from San Francisco, dated Juno 18, Btnlcs that they wore inurdoriug tho whitos at Ml*. Idaho. Col. Ferry, with oho tiffidred soldiers, some citizens and friendly Indians, marched against them. Quite a number of men, wo- rnou and children wuro masuared. Twonly-oight whites wore killed, The whites had killed Whito Bird, chief of tho hostile'!, and his family, A few skirmishes have taken placo between the Turks and ltussiuus, in which tho Turks wuro worslod. The Cirottssinns in tho Turkish army be came mutinous, owing to inaction and demaudeu to bo led Against- the enemy. Permission wiu> granted Mouhsii, with 1,000 men, hturlod fur Kars, and reached tho villago of Boukli Ahmed, situated on the, plains of Kars, and oucaiupod thoro for the night. Thu Russians oamu upon thorn suddenly, {sunouud ed tho vil- lage, and took tho Circassians by sur prise. Eleven huudrod Circassians wero killed and tho rest woro either dijpersod or taken prisoners. Hundrods of Turkish soldiors aro dosorling, owing to ill provided condi tion of army. Their condition is growing daily worse and worse. Thoy aro poorly foil and uluthod, and aro in want of almost ovory uooossity. There is hound to bo a change in Cabinet soon, unless matters change. Mr. Hayes and tho Secretary of the Treasury hud it impossible, so far, to to make ouu another understand ouch • other’s financial viows. Hays wants tho silver dollar, and Shorumn will have uothiug but gold. Tho Attorney Clouorul lias called upon tho accounting officers of tho treasury for U copy of tho accounts of Brigham Young, filed some twonj ty yuaus ago, whuu ho was au ludiuu agent. It is iulimntod that thoy fur nish important testimony on which to huso a prusucutiou for vnrious illegal acts alleged to have boon committed liy him when suoh agent. The lawyers employod by tho oity of New York to oomiuot tho Twood ring prosecutions have 1'eccivud ns fees *280,000 out of tho *700,000 cbbII rcoovorud from tho thiovos, tho and tho foos of tho counsel on tho $100,00(1 Sweeney Is to pay will .amount to a good deal more. These legal gentlomou would probably like to prolong tho prosooutions indefi nitely. Tin- Crop*. Tho glorious showers continue their revivihg iuflnonco over our statu and all orops aro growing with rapidi ty, Corn is oxcollont and is showing tho dark green color, indicative of of vigor and thriftiness. Colton hus taken a now start sinoo tho rains be gan, and is now bending to its work in earnest. In fact, the draught was hurtful only to spring oats and gar- dons; the former is always un uncer tain crop. Upon tho wholo our crop prospects at this time ore decidedly encouraging, Humpter County Horror. A gentleman while fishing near An- dersonvillo suddenly came upon tho naked and hoadless body of a man. Appearances indicated that a foul and unusually violout and brutal tnurdor bad takon placo. An attompt which was only partially successful, to de stroy tho clothing of tho murdorod man, and tlicro woro other evidences going to show that those who com mitted tho crime wished to conceal it. Tho body was somewhat decomposed ami it is supposed that tho murder had boon committed soveral days pre vious to the discovery. Tbu eorouorH inquest throws no light upon this mysterious snbjccl, and tho probabili ty is that tho guilty party will never bo brought to justice.—[Atlanta Con slitutiou. Morbiil IlimiaiiitnrlniiiHUl. AVhat a Hood of rohiiuiHcenoos it brings upon a young man’s luiud, these balmy June mornings, while ho is hunting nruuud in tho bottom of the trunk for a soidlitz powder, to oomo upon a dairy, and road ou tho first, and only written page, under dato of January I; “I will never ngaiu touoh a single drop of any iutoxica- liquor. This day soos mo froo from tho chains of a habit that—,” otc," Oh, young man, if you had only kept that promise what might you have been to-day. A spring snow storm iu Novada has a peculiar effect cither upon vegeta tion or tho editorial imagination, or both. Tho Virginia Enterprise says of one: “The littlo trees held up their arms all of a tremble and shook their loaves besecchiugly, and as if in protest. Tho roses drooped and died as though thoy had bceu disappoint ed in love, lu the valleys tho blos- ’ Oo to Boston for half IrutliH and oxlromo opinion. Perhaps wo should liavo written half-truths only, for an oxlromo opinion and a half truth aro equivalents. Now Massachusetts 1ms a "reform school" for vicious buys, Doer Island, in Boston harbor. Thoy hud an "occasion” there recently, tho Mayor and other distinguished per sons making tho Institution a sort of semi-official visit. A Mr. Walter Smith—fanatioal enough to bo close kin to Clarrotl—with othors made a speech. That is ho talked a good deal of arrant nunseuse. il is not worth quoting, A singlo paragraph givus tho drift of it. Wo sample this this precious dclivoraucu of a cranky "humanitarian:” "You have boon told to-day that you buvo, must of you, committed crimes; you are down Just now, hut you can reform uud gut up ugaiu. I’ve no doubt that this is truo; but thoro is another view of tho matter which I take, and that is that your crimes agaiust socioty aro not half as black or so numerous, us so ciety's crimes agaiust you." Then plenty moro of this stuff. . No doubt thuru is truth in Mr. Wul ter Smith’s views; had society been faithful, mauy of theso threo huudrod juvenile criminals would havu boon out of tho reform school aud at work, Bub what sorb of doolriuo is this that Mr. Smith proachcs to tho bud boy: in this Door Island Reform School. Doos ho not virtually say to those who aro ovorquiek at inventing ox- cusos aud pollutions for their crimos,- "You aro not to blame for this Suoh talk encourages vagabondism, excuses theft, apologises for vagran cy, multiplies tramps and doad beats, smiles complacuutly ou villians, aud turns their just puuishunub into a sort of martyrdom. It fosters tho worst kiud of (Jomiuuuism. Bye and byo most of theso throe hundred hoys will bo turned out uud luoso. They may remembor Mr. Smiths wild talk, and why should thov uot holp thom- solvos to a part of Mr. Smith’s estate —seeing thoy arc poor aud ho is in comfort. And, if ouo of them should brain a man somo day what is it but a well merited punishment of society for its crimes against tho houovnblo brotherhood of tramps? Is it uot tho tramp’s way of getting ovcu with his oppressors? What a paradise for tramps would Massachusetts bo if al men thei'o agreed w ith Mr. Walter Smith. Probably tho people will vote Mr. Smith as a lunatic, uud dismiss him and his half truths with contempt, hut his foolish words will do harm hovortholcs. No doubt ho thiuks ho has a “mission;" that he is a kiud of precondemned to the gallows as tho "unforluuuto man,” tho ‘law’s victim’ with many like expressions. “Uufortu- nato” is not tho word to uso, hut its very frequent employment indicates a morbid sympathy with convicted criminals that bodes no good to so ciety. And the long, minute, dramat ic, sensational "roports” of hanging— half eulogies of the “victims of tho law” many of thorn uro—only tend to mako crimo loss horrible. Why, tho reporter fools that ho has not half douo his work unless ho hns a long 'interview in tho coll of tho laws vic tim,” Wc must neods huva his bio graphy in pamphlet form distributed around tho gallows on tho day of tho execution. What sort of a tasto buvo tho peo ple who gloat over such reading? IIow much bettor is tho method of tho Loudon Times —dismissing tho mur derer into merited oblivion with threo or four lines: 'Hung ut Tyburn, Juuc8, A. B., for tho murder of O. D.“ That is enough. Theso superficial but rod hot talkers liko Mr. Walter Smith; theso sousational newspapers with melodramatic interviews and hold up hardened villians who only receive the “just reward of their crimes” as half heroos uud half mar tyrs, are sinning against society and scattering fur and wide the seeds of crimos. “What shall tho harvest he.” —[II. in Southern Christiau Advocate Over three thotisaud Ohinosu laud od at San Francisco during tho mouth ot May, and more aru earning.
