The Columbus Enquirer urges the impor
tance of a close collection of the poll tax, as
it is kept in the country and devoted to the
maintainance of the people's schools. It is
paid over to the country school commission
ers, who pay it out without any deduction
for fees or salaries of officers to the support
of the common schools of the country. The
law authorizes the garnishment of wages for
the poll tax, and there is no reason why it
should not be closely collected.

The Gwinnett Herald likes the resolution
of the Baltimore dealers in fertilizers not to
sell on time with the planters’ option of pay
ing in cotton. It says: “We are not opposed
to the use of fertilizers, but the point we de
sire to make and impress upon the planters
of Gwinnett is, that the purchase upon a cred
it of large quantities is too much risk. Good
fertilizers can be made at home from now un
til planting time next spring at one-third the
cost of commercial fertilizers; and if the man
'ufacturers determine to sell for cash only, in
less than three years there will not be one
tenth as much sold in Georgia as there was
this j r ear.”
Some negro “ Ku-Klux,” accompanied by
a white man, went to the house of Rack Beall,
col., in Irwinton, at 3 o’clock, one morning
last week, and taking him by force, carried
him to a bridge over a deep creek, and after
gagging and tying him and fastening an iron
wheel and a plow on his neck, threw him in
to the creek, and left him to drown or die.—
They had fired a pistol at him, but missed
him, and he “played dead.” As lie was sink
ing in the water he struck a log, by means of
which he clambered out, and finally got to a
house and was relieved of his shackles.—
Nine of the negroes were arrested, but the
negro refused to give the name of the white
man, although lie recognized the whole party.
Another negro was assasinated some 15 miles
from the town of Wilkinson, on the Black
shear Ferry road. He was shot at the corner
of his cabin, with a load of buckshot, seven
entering his body, and two his arm. He only
lived a few hours. He was a State’s witness
in the late insurrectionary trials, and this, it
is supposed, accounts for his tragic end.—
This is the third State's witness disposed of
in this manner since the trials. His name
was Jordan Chambers.
"NO PROSPECT OF WAR.”
The public prints for a week or two past
have brought the news of a little “ speck of
war*’ between the U. S. and Spain ; but from
telegrams published and received by Wed
nesday’s mail, it appears “ negotiations are
proceeding favorably. The relations be
tween the two countries may be regarded as
excellent.” And further—
Reports of Friday from Washington also
say: “The trouble with Spain, which has
been made out to be so great in Cuba circles,
is at an end. On to-day, Secretary Fish re
ceived from Minister Cushing, at Madrid, a
dispatch to the effect that the Spanish Gov
ernment was now ready to concede all our
demands and had given such pledges that
there remained no longer any doubt but Spain
would agree to do all that was required of
her.” It is also stated (says the Columbus
Enquirer) that nothing else was demanded of
Spain but a more faithful observance of the
treaty of 1705 in its provisions regarding the
right to search American vessels and to try
and punish persons found on them accused
of hostile operations against Spain. If this
was the only demand that occasioned the late
flurry, it is very strange that such great mis
conceptions prevailed both in Spain and Great
Britain—witness the letter of Don Carlos to
King Alphonso. and the article of the London
Times copied by us the other day—as well
as in the United States. The strongpresump
tion is raised that politicians were feeling the
temper of the country, with a view to party
operations; and not until the general senti
ment was expressed emphatically in opposi
tion to an} 7 harsh demands by the Adminis
tration, was the public permitted to know
that no such demands had been made. This
presumption is strengthened bv the unques
tioned show of preparations for impending
trouble made by the Administration. If no
other demand had been made on Spain than
such as is now explained, there was certainly
no need for the activity at the navy yards
lately displayed and probably still going on.
In connection, we re-produce some para
graphs from the Enquirer of some days past,,
and which arc alluded to alx>ve. By these
the reader may gain, perhaps, a better knowl
edge of the cause of this little “unpleasant
ness” —which now seems so nearly adjusted.
We say “adjusted*’—but there’s no telling
what Grant and his third term aspirants may
yet do; a “trump card” will no doubt be
played at the right time, and the people
should be informed as fully as possible as
to the. “status of the situation.”
The Spanish journals do not publish the
“note” from the United States that has caus
ed such a sensation and aroused such appre
hensions of war. But they profess to have
ascertained that it was “in regard to the trea
ty of 171)5**—that is. that the United States
threatens to abrogate the treaty of 1795, un
less Spain complies with some demand which
our Administration lias made. The demand
may have been the recognition of the inde
pendence of Cuba, its cession to the United
States, or the abolition of slavery in the is
land. We are not, definitely informed what
it is, but as the Government of the United
States has just the same right to make either
one of these demands as the other two. one
seems to be about as probable as the others.
What,, then, is the treaty of 1795, thus
threatened to be abandoned ? It, is, in gen
eral terms, a treaty guaranteeing to Spain
protection against filibusters from the United
States. When it was made, Spain was pos
sessed of territory within the present limits
of the United States, and part of the treaty
related to the boundary lines and their ob
servance. Other articles forbade the citizens
of either country to arm privateers against
the other, prohibited the introduction of con
traband goods when either might order their
exclusion, and authorized either nation to
search the vessels of the other, in a time of
war (like that in Cuba) to sec that their pa
pers were all regular. The abrogation of this
treaty at this time, would leave Spain without
any protection from armed expeditions fitted
out in the United States to aid the Cubans,
and such expeditions would of course be un
dertaken. So the threatened abrogation is
nothing more nor less than a menace to turn
loose upon Spain the willing filibusters of the
United States, and thus to wrest Cuba from
her, unless she complies with some demand
of the nature of which wc are not authorita
Wc copy an article of the London Times,
which bristles with pointed suggestions and
speculations touching this complication. The
Times is uncertain whether President Grant
is in “dead earnest” or whether he is only
“talking to Buneomb”—trying to make party
capital for himself or party. Wc of the Uni
ted States understand him better, and have
no doubt that his prime objects is party cap
ital at home. But we cannot tell to what
lengths he may be compelled to go in pur
suit of this object. An inglorious backing
down or signal defeat would be damaging to
him and his party, rather than advantageous
to either, and therefore he may feel impelled
to persevere even to the embroilment of the
two nations in war. In the event of war, the
Times gives us to understand, the moral sen
timent of England, if not of all Europe, would
be enlisted on the side of Spain. It does not
plainly promise Spain the assistance of oth
er European powers in the conflict, but it ev
idently aims to “strengthen the backbone”
of the Alphonso Government b}' holding out
the hope of foreign assistance. It, may also
think that a timely European protest will
have the effect of curbing the Administration
at Washington, and thus preserving Cuba to
Spain—a relation which Great Britain great
ly desires to maintain
Office of State Treasurer Vacant.
It was noted last week or week before,
that the Governor had required the State
Treasurer, John Jones, Esq., to file anew
bond—the former bond, for reasons assign
ed, not being deemed suffieisnt. Ten days,
were allowed for this purpose, by law, we
believe. The time expired and the new bond
was not forthcoming ; whereupon the Gov
ernor declared the office vacant. The At
lanta Constitution of the 30th ult„ contains
the following, which is the latest we have on
Tiik Treasury. —No further developments
concerning the succession. Matters were
exceedingly quiet about the Executive office
yesterday, Concerning treasury matters there
was nothing to be gleaned further than that
Mr. J. A. Richardson and Mr. W. B. Lowe
were named as aspirants for the vacant office.
The Governor has given no intimation as to
whom he will confer the trust upon, but it is
certain that he will select the coming man
within the next two or three daj T s. In the
meantime Captain Jones is preparing to de
liver up the office. He refuses to make any
public statement at present.

Murder will Outl
On the 17th proximo John B. Rctty will
be hung for murder committed in the year
1864. 11 is trial took place a fortnight since
at St. Mary’s, and though defended by able
counsel, the evidence was so clear, and the
commission of the deed so well established
by the confessions of the culprit, that his
fate is decided beyond peradventnre. The
facts in the case carry one back to the dark
days of the late war, and is only one of
hundreds that might be brought to light.
Petty was a private in the Fourth Georgia
Cavalry, and was with that command at
Charleston, and deserted from it with a fellow
soldier named Floyd Williams. Up to this
time they had proven themseves to be brave
and gallant men. Elbert Allen, also a
private in the same command, and being in
the same county (Camden) in which the} 7 had
enlisted, was detailed to arrest them, and
proceeding to their homes, captured them
and carried them back. Floyd Williams
soon after died, and his relatives attributed
his death to his returning to camp. Petty
soon after deserted the second time. In
December, 1864, Allen was granted a fur
lough to come home to attend to some
private affairs, but hearing that threats had
been made against him by Petty, he sent
word to him that he was not coming after
him. It seems, howevr, that his enemy had
determined to revenge himself even unto
death; and while Allen was driving along
the road from JefFersonton to his farm with
provisons for his familly, he was ambuhsed
by Petty and James E. Williams, (a brother
of Floyd) and killed by a shot from the
former's gun, William’s gun missing fire.
Poor Allen’s little son was the only witness
to the bloody deed. In the then unsettled
state of the country, the killing went unpun
ished; but as order was restored, Petty, who
in tho meantime had married the widow of
his deceaed comrade, Floyd Williams, left
the country. Yeas passed by and Allen's
son had come to man’s estate, and determin
ed. if possible, to bring his farther’s murderer
(who had often boasted of his bloody work)
to trial, and tracing him to Florida had him
arrested on a requisition from the Governor
of this State, and brought to trial. He was
defended by good counsel, his wife selling
the last of iicr estate to save him, but without
avail. James E. Williams, who was also
tried, was acquitted, as there was a doubt in
his case, though wc understand that Pett}’
has made a statement, in which he said Wil
liams was present, but did not fire at Allen,
as his gun would not go ofF. Thus a bloody
deed, committed in December, 1864. will be
expiated eleven years after.— Sav. News.
