A BIG SWINDLE.

A more barefaced swindle than this
Big Sandy Railroad enterprise was per
haps never perpetrated upon a confiding
people. A few unprincipled speculators
in New York, by reason of their connec
tion with the Chesapeake and Ohio Rail
road, succeeded in making the citizens of
Lexington behove that a line of railroad
would bo buflt from Elizabethtown
through Lexington to the mouth of the
Big Sandy river, to connect with the
Chesapeake and Ohio road, if we would
subscribe a quarter of a million of stock.
The sharpers knew that someone influ
ential with the people would haveto beem
ployvd to convince them of the vast ben
efits to be derived from the projected en
terprise. The man selectedlfor the pur
pose was Gen. John O. inridge, the
most magnificent greenhorn in Kentucky
to-day. The General, with a verdancy
that I suppose was one of the css.:..tial
qualifications of the President of the
Elizabethtown, Lexington and Big Sandy
Railroad, assured his fellow-citizens that
he had every confidence in the integrity
and financial ability of the New Yorkers
who promised to build the road ! These
fellows in the background bad subscribed
82,500,000. The General was certain that
it was a bona fule subscription. Mr.
Huntington, President of the Chesapeake,
and Ohio Company, assured Gen. Breck
inridge that such was the case, and tic
General assured the people. Huntington

sharpers collected nearly a million and
pocketed file difference. Now they have j
just succeeded in mortgaging the whole
road for three millions-of dollars, and the ;
stock which was given to the people in
return for the tux has been blown to the
four winds. But, the funniest thing is
vet to be told. Col. Hart Gibson of the
Lexington Press went to New York to in
He saw Mr. Huntington. He asked why
the subseribtion of two and a lull mil
lions had not been paid. Mr. Huntington
replied that railroads were not built, in
that way. “Who subscribed the moneyr”
asked Col. Gibson. “Phillips,” said
Huntington. “Ami who is Phillips
“A moneved man here in the city, was
the reply* Col. Gibson, turning his head,
saw, laughing, at hisde.sk, a tall clerk,
with a pen behind his car, and the Colo
nel was powerfully impressed with the
idea that that was Phillips. At any rate
ho could not find anybody but Hunting
ton who knew who Phillips was. Gener
al Breckinridge has not yet been invited
to hunt him up. Poor gentleman : he
had not been prepared for ] irtnerships
in such rascality. *
The fact he was an innocent party
tQ a huge fraud, which mainly by his
efforts was perpetrated upon bis own
people, sickened him in body and mind,

Tenant's Covenant to Repair.
In a case at issue iu the Superior Court
at Baltimore, the Judge delivered the fol
lowing instructions t “ th« jvy -
“The wowto’boep” implies an obliga
tion to p, Unrepair when received, and
keep it so. It would te idle to stipulate
to keep in repair what is not in repair.
To keep is equivalent to put and keep
and deliver up in that condition. I lie
real difficulty is in the words “goodor
der and repair.” They mean such rea
sonable condition of fitness as belongs to
houses of that age, class and condition.
Good repair for one may- not be for an
other. Whether the house is in such re
pair is not for the jury to determine.
Such construction docs not require art
outgoing tenant to repaint and repair but
only -to keepin such condition as is con
sistent'with the use, and not allow it to
be defaced, and to use it with proper and
reasonable care, and deliver it up as it
may be left after such care. There is no
I custom or rule of law that an outgoing
tenant is obliged to repaint and repair un
less under a distinct and well defined
agreement to that effect. “In good order
and repair” will receive a proper construc
tion by considering in general terms the
use in respect to its class and age and the
use to which it is applied. Nor should
it be said that the tenant shall keep it as
received. On that construction you neg
ative the meaning of the words “good

A DEFENCE OF MGS. WEST
Editors Abveuttsyr-Reiujblican :
Absence from the city lias prevented me
: from sooner noticing an article in your
. issue of the 25th ult., which does .gross
! injustice to a most estimable lady. The
article referred to is headed “Mrs. West
moreland and Woman's Rights,” and!
professes to give extracts from the New j
: York Herald of October 18, iu which was j
j reported correctly, and not as you have it .
Mrs. W’s remarks, or the substance of
; them. Now, to corn ice you that your ar
i tide is incorrect, I copy it and then copy I
the extracts from the Herald of the 18th
| of October, aecomjmnied by the paper itself, j
so that you may compare the two. As j
; you will see, no allusion was made by ;
Mrs. Westmoreland to voting-Or the right
of ballot. She simply contended that j
women should have a higher class of ed
| neat ion than now bestowed, so that when |
! thrown upon their own resources for I
] support they could maintain themselves
without being forced into menial pesi- 1
tions or to servile labor. I beg that those
j of your exchanges who have copied your
| original article will do the lady the justice
to republish this in their issues :
**** * * * *
I The Ilernld says : “Mrs. Maria Jor
dan Westmoreland came to the platform,
! and, looking like one of Titan’s high-born
j Haines, said, in a sweet and low, but dis
tinct voice, that tmwe was a great neces
sity for close union between the women of
! the North and South. She hoped that
lecturers would be sent through the South
in order to awaken the ladies ofr that sec
tion to immediate action. Mrs. West
moreland further stated that she would
gladly give any lecturers letter* of intro
duction to the first people of the South
in order to further the common ob
“Mrs. Westmoreland, of Atlanta,Geor
gia, spoke on the condition of Southern
women; she said she know them well 1
enough to know that if the papers of
this Congress liadbeen read in the South,!
it would rouse them t.lmt, they would.nut j
be quiet until they had the ballot.” 1
• ' * « * * * * I
What the Herald did sap : Describing |
the persons present, * * * “and Ma- j

Again : “Mrs. Maria Jourdan Wcst

I said, in a sweet and low but distinct voice,
that!ihen was a /iccusity for close

| DISORDERS IN LOUISIANA.
The New Orleansy.cayuue of tW 31st
; ult. says:
The officers of the ttoatnhoat wank
FargouJ, which arrived\ in the cily'yes
i ter Huy, give a statement of an outage
; perpetrated on the steamer at Goodrich's
i Landing, about twenty-five miles abcVc
; Vicksburg, on the Louisiana side, on tie
i 27th ult.., by a crowd of negroes, beaded
bv one Cain Sartain, a Kellogg membe\
lof the Legislature, which certainly calls
for action on the part of the United
It appears from these statements that
while the steamer was at Goodrich Land-,
ing, she- was boarded by a mob of at hast |
sixty men; led by Sartainund Davis Jack- j
’ son, clerk of the Parish Court, B. Smith,!
j and other negro roughs of the district. |
i These entered the cabin and demanded \
1 that they be furnished with drinks at the I
bar. Captain White, who was lying ill j
j at the time, however, immediately rose, j
| and with tha.utmost determination, or- j
i He—ed. them off the steamer. As the Cap- i
itJ 11 was very determined and “looked ;
; business,” they slowly retired to the land-
Cummings, the mate, with the
■ crew, was taking on freight.
They then surrounded him, and sever
; al times threatened his life, but with the
’ assistance of the crew, who rallied to their
| officers, the mob was beaten off. They
: immediately, however, sent to the neigh
boring plantations to the negroes, telling
; them to arm, as it was their intention to
i attack the boa*.
1 By this time the officers of the steamer
i becoming uneasy, they backed out, but
the mob fired Lite the boat at least 1
I hundred shots, fortunately, however,
! without inflicting any injury, as the crew
and passengers laid down behind the
piles of cotton bales, which .acted as a
1 breastwork. *
We understand it is the intention of
i Capt. White and Mr. Cummings to lay
the matter before the United States au
thorities, charging Cain Sartain and oth
er rioters with violating the Ku-Klux
act, as if no action is taken in the prem
ises, it will be impossible ior the steamer
to land at any point in the neighborhood
which will not only be a serious loss to
the whites but also to the blacks in the
vicinity'. These outrages having been
threatened for s<*ic time, and now con
su mated, materially affect the commer
cial interests of the community.
There are now over three hundred

HERE SHALL THE PRESS THE PEOPLE’S RIBBTS MAINTAIN, UN AWED BY PEAK AND UNBRIBED
QUITMAN, GA., THURSDAY. NOVEMBEM
The It>p-Murderer, Stokes.
yom the Savannah News.)
i Stokes, the murderer of Fisk, and the
1 pink and pet of New York fast society,
has utter two years’ dalliance with the
law tnd the expenditure of a vast amount
ot money, succeeded in escaping the gal
l«ws, and has been consigned for a short
term to the Sing-Sing penitentiary at
healthlul employment. The history of
liis case, so well known to our readers, is
only auotlrr sad commentary, [not only
on the law’s delay, but on the looseness
and uncertainty of its administration in
this country, where the -possession of
wealth or social influence too often gives
impunity to crime. That Stokes is a
murderer uo one doubts. But he and
his friends could afford to pay liberal
fees, au/l while Foster, who, without pro
medication and in a fit of drunken pns
! sion, slew a man against whom he had
no malice, paid the forfeit of his life and
: new sleeps in a felon’s grave, Stokes, the
ftshiona-lde debauehe and pimp of the
New York saloons, who killed bis former
friend and rival with deliberate and cold
blooded malice, retires to the shade of
prison life until a pardon can be obtained
for him, wken he will again return, fa
mous, to tie circles of which he was stu b |
an ornament. The two eases are not
without a moral -they illustrate one dis
graceful sact —that in this country, while
a fashionable snop may resort to the pis
tol for his revenge, murder is not to be
indulged in with impunity by the impe
cunious and friendless. Perhaps this
fact is coming to be understood, for wo
observe that while Stokes’ t rial was large
ly attended by the snobbery of New
Voit, and *a large number of elegantly
dressed ladies,” whose demonstrations of
grief and sympathy followed him from
the prisoner’s box to his cell iu the
Tombs, he was not so well received on
his Way to Sing-Sing. An account of
lvis journey to that State institution says:
it Sing-Sing Stokes asked if he might
have some lunch, as he had left New
York in such a hurry that but little break
fist was eaten. Ho was taken to a hotel.
The news had spieud, however, and in
front of the hotel was found “gathered a
crowd off roughs such as no town outside
of Now York, except Sing-Sing, could
have furnished. The party with 'Stokes
formed around the prisoners, and mak
ing their way through the mass pro
ceeded dawn the track, followed by erics
“r'inll mnCd 11 Him,” “WuoroaiVi
the lotteu eggs r” “How is Josephine,,
Ed ?”a nd remarks of like character. The
prison was reached, and passuig into tic
warden’s office the prisoners' names, oc
cupation, crime, -to., were registered.
Stokls hud a short conversation with
Warj. n Hubbell, after which Couse and
lie wi taken to the State shop, where
the riroecss of clothing them with the
“bars.and stripes” was proceeded with.
Stokes made several remarks about “his
suit being comfortable, even if it was nut j
made byß.dl,” anil that “he like
a base-ift Hist.”
Stokes has evidently less to fear from
the law than ho has from the “roughs,’
whom it will be well for him to avoid
when he is again-restored to “society.”
Communion in Mr. Beecher's Ch urch
A rc potto 1 thus describes the adminis
tration oi the Commuion in Plymouth
Church m Sunday last:
Before the pulpit, and fitting the semi
circular line of the front pews, was a long,
narrow table, covered with a white cloth, I
Upon it stood two large silver wine pitch -1
ers, twenty silver goblets and ten silver j
plates with broken bread upon them. The
utensils were massive and handsome, i
“Before you,” said Mr. Beecher, “is!
spread a seuvenirof the death of Christ,a j
'memorial of the God who sympathizes with ‘
Jou in all your sufferings. I invitenobody j
i# phrtiepate in this rite because he is a
! mymber of a. church. It is free to every-'
j boJV-who desires to accept Christ.”
j After a hymn and a benediction those
who did not* wish to partake of (be Com
munion retired. When they hud done so
j fully two thousand persons were left. In
I the tyo frint pews sat the ten deacons

j !y for a blessing upon the ensuing ceremo-
I ny. Then be handed the plates of bread to
thtdeocous, vbo passed through the eon
j gregation with them. The most exact sys-
I tern' prevented unnecssary delay. The
plates were handed to the persons sit
j ting in the ends of the pews, and passed
\ along umil they reached the ends at the
i opposite aisles, when, instead of being re-
I turned through the same numerous hands,
they were take* by other deacons and
i passed backalongthe nextunserved pew.
; Thus the multitude was decorously and
During this Mr. Beecher sat behind
the table with hisbead bowed. There was j
almost oppressive stillness, and as the)
worshipers ate flic emblamatic bread |
they covered thtir eyes and prayed j
silently. The lightfrom the half burn- j
ing ebandalier in the ceiling mingled j
with that which came in through the few j
open blinds with a curiously weird effect j
as : een by the spectators who looked down j
from the galleries. When the deacons
had distributed the breed they resumed J
their seats, and were served by the
pastor, who then, after a brief prayer,
filled the goblets from the great pitchers.
The wine was passed in the same way
that the bread had been, and a collection
for the poor followed the Communion.

The Model Neuro Farmer.— -Mr. TJ.
C. Fambrough discourses as follows on
the above subject in the last Monroe Ad
The model negro fanner buys an old
mule or blind horse on a credit, rents
laud either for a part of the crop or so
many bales of cotton, procures tools as
best, ho can, buys corn, bacon, etc., tor
which lie gives alien on his crop. And
then, about April, he commences to pre
pare for planting corn, either breaking
or laying off in rows, to break out the
middles after the com isup. Cornpla.lt
ing over, he proceeds, seme tune in May,
to prepare for cotton. “Cuffe gwine to

I’se not gwine to buy juanner to put on

some sultry evening, be saunters fiom
liis but and, after surveying bis pros
pects, he says : “Whew ! sun gitlen hot ;
time Use plantin’ my cotton.” Hitches
up his mule to bis one-liprse cart, and
off he goes to hunt cotton seed. Well,
after cotton planting, then for a fish and
hunt. Some Juno Monday morning he
wakes up about one or two hours by the
sun, and, after breakfast, he hitches up
his mulo to run round his corn ; after
treating bis cotton in somewhat the same
way, he proceeds to chopping. Then for
another big frolic, to say nothing about
going to his meetings and to town every
Saturday. After this fashion he gets
through the year. He then takes what

it for provision bills, returns his mule to
