Xel- •aa, of cholera, in KnoxriUe on SAnday. On Satarday a onto red drayman died of the same J sease. Tbe Daily Proas and Herald announces that there are no other oases. Tbe (eademaed ladtea. Captain Jack, Sohonahln, Black Jim, Boston Charlie, One-eyed Jim and Slolnek, with aa alias—six of them—are appointed to be hnng on tbe 3d day of next Oetober. They nndoubt edly deserve death. They were guilty of an act of supreme treachery and assassination. Under pretence of treating for pesos they eonght and obtained a conference with General Canby and two United States Feaoe Commissioner,, and mnrdered two of them while unarmed, naans pecting and defenoeleea, and nearly killed the third. Tbe act was unpardonable, and tbe tfTort to prevent Ite condign punishment by tba United Statai authorities U unworthy of the r'Jghteat recognition. Thera it too mnoh of this mawkish aentimen tality in regard to the Indiana on onr frontier. It la mere, sentimentality, without common ■ante, and srithont sensibility to tbe awfal oat- rage, perpetrated frequently on. the frontier settlers from Texas to Oregon. That tbe In diana have been wronged and swindled by Gov ernment agents, may be all very true, and that they may be occasionally victimized to tbe law lessness of the frontier settlers themselves, may be possible. Bat what then ? Beth aides most be tangbt to respect jnatioe and law by a stern repression and punishment of violenoe and wrong. There it no other way of preserving tbo peace. Tbe Indian must bring hia com plaints to the nearest military post and look to tha Gorernment for redress, and not to n der of innooent women and children. Tbe stories of recent Indian raids from the Mexican frontier, where whole families bare beon mnrdered with every imaginable exoeas of cruelty, end little babes burned alive with tbe bodies of their parents, are too horrible to be even conceived. We have no more admiration for tbo stalling savage than we have for a wolf, and aneb atrocities as Ibeeo ahcnld be pnniahed in a way that will teaoh Mr. Indian they can no longer bo tolerated, but will bring awlft and>ndden vengeance on bia own bead. 8r ram’* Cncicn, in New Y'ork, ia bavin, new flror, new oak pews, and tbs pnlpit re stored to tbe centre.

Tbe Ohio negroas had a big convention last Friday at Chillicotko. Tha President—John Docker, a lineal dosoendent of the Booker bo famone in song—on taking the obalr, remarked that in hia estimation the negro race waa politi cally oppressed, and spoke of the “parly to which we belong,” when another brother oor- reoted him by snggestiDg that the words should be “the party to which we are attached.” The same brother, Olark, of Cincinnati, then made a rooming speech, charging that the negroes were ignored in all the Northwest m the be stowal of Federal oilheff, and that ia manicpal offices iu Ohio, or the labor on pnblio works, he was alio Ignored. He said the demands of the black man were expressed in the Philadel phia platform last year, but that the platform had not been obaorved. He thought now was tho time to claim redreoa. Abont 100 delegates from varioas patts of the 8tate were present. The committee on icsolntions reported a long preamble, first qaotir g the promise to them in the Philadelphia platform, and charging that this promiso has boen disregarded, and after a farther recital of grievances presented the fol lowing resolutions which were adopted: Resolved, That we, the oolored voters of Ohio, in convention assembled, do protest against tbe nDjnst discrimination permitted to wards ns by the representatives of the party whom we aid in mooring cfHoial positions.— The colored voter* of this Btate don’t consider themselves under lasting obligations to a party which favors ns aa a class, only in proportion as it is driven by its own necessities. Resolved, That the oolored men of tbe State aro hereby urged to refrain from uncondition ally pledging themselves to tba nominees of tboir local conventions, and they mnet nsa their best discrimination in determining for them selves in each locality whom to vote for and whether to vote at alh Those arc tolerably spunky woids, but they don’t araonnt to mneb. The negroes of Ohio and every other State belong to their masters, tbo Radical party, jaat as emphatically and en tirely as the S mthern slaves did to their mas ters. They may rewlvo as mnch as they please, bat when voting time comes, they will swallow their indignation and be driven to the polls like sheep, jaat as they have always been.— They are beginning to cat their eye teeth, it is trne, bat the additional knowledge that comes of that operations won’t do them a particle of good. A KOYiL ROIAICE. TT10 nansMsrofan Kmperor Full, ia lor* with nu Ennliati Proieuorunitlellelilm of 1C. Tbe cffloial announcement of the betrothal of the Grand Dncbeaa Maria Alexsndrovna, only .laughter of the Czar of Bueaia, to tho Duke of Edinburgh, second aon of Queen Victoria, has brought out another episode in the life of the Greed Ducbees, which ia now the chief enbjeet of gossip in St. Petersburg. It appears that about two years ago ths Czar conceived the idea of marrying his daughter to the Dnke of Edinburgh, and, as a preliminary etep, sent for a young English profeavor in the University of SL Petersburg, named Swayne, to teaoh her English. The Dnchess immediately fell in love with her teacher, and informed him of it. For several months he tanght her English and she ttught him love, bat one day tbe Czar told her be should shortly take her to a German watering-place to make the acqneintanoe of her intended. She informed him that would be unnecessary, as ehe had already given hor heart and hand to Mr. Swayne. Thereupon aho waa sent to her apartments, and Prof. Swayne waa summoned and informed by tbe Gzar that he bad better leave Basel* immediately, which be did. The yonsgDachees was inconsolable for a long time, and swore to her parents ehe wonld never marry the Dnke of Edinburgh. When she was taken to Ger many she refused to meet her intended, and daring her reoent sojourn with her mother in Italy she heaped continual alights upon hia head. Her repugnance, however, waa finally overoome, and now, instead of beooming plain Mr*. Swayne, ehe will soon be the Dochesa of Elinbnrgh. How mnch oomfort the Dnke may detiva from the alliauoe ia another con sideration. The episode shows that even a Czar’* daughter ia apt to be bnman. Oxlt four members of the original Anti- Slavery Society are now living—William Lloyd Gartison, of Boston; Beojamin O. Bacon, of Beverly. New Jersey; the K;v. Motes Theober, of New York, and Oliver Johnson, editor of the Christian Union. If none cf them had over lived tbla country would hare been immeasurably better off. Upon their heed* mate all the blood end misery of the late eivll war, and the atill more damning infamy of Badieal reeooalxuotion with all its nameless and nnmberleas iniquities. If there are aay grades of pnniahment in Tophet these anti-slavery traitor* will anrely enjoy a place very near the store. A icerx occurred in n Galveatoa polios oonrt tbe other day which should impress the youth cf the country with the importance of learning a trade. A yoneg German, well educated and refined in manner, was arraigned for a petty theft. He said that he waa of honorable birth, had come to the United States with several tboas.iud dollars, and had not been aucceasfnl in establishing himself in bnainees. He ob tained work in the kitchen of a Galveston hotel, and purloined $7. Tue young man begged the Kreorder to send him to the penitenuery. in order that be might learn a trade, and added that it not sentenoed for a long term, he wonld commit some other end more eerioos crime Seeing that the youth was in earneet, the oonrt sentenced him to two year* in the Bontayille penitenuery. If this yonog German bad been tanght a n-iefnl trade at borne, aa meat of hia countrymen are, as wonld have been saved the -tame of learning one in the penitentiary. Ntaoaaa squirms nnder tbe extortionary rep- ulauon she has won through many year# of trick* upon travellers. She protista that her buck and livery men are no worse then tho*e of many other pi tees. The fact ta Niagara has thundered in vain this rammer Vtailor* have been few end far between, and althocgh ehe baa fenced in ths fella and chargee twenty-five cent* admission, yet the dividends Lave panned ont very light.

Son says: Governor Smith, in reply to tha spplieation for a battery of gone for the proposed artillery company here, elates that the appropriation will only justify the purchase of a single battery— the coat of which ia fire thousand dollars—snd that has already been promised to the Chatham Artillery, of Her&onah, which is the oldest oom pany of the kind in the State. Tsx Houston Home Jonrnal says this he* been the sickliest season Ferry has had for many years. For the last week or two nearly every family in that plaoe and neighborhood has bad some of its members under medical treatment The diaeosee are principally of a mild billions typo. The lest Washington Gazitte has these items Kicxeo bta Hoxse asd Skbiocslt IaJcaXD.— We learn itiat llr. Ilrodenc*, a eewmg maobine agent, whose headquarters have been at this place for some time pee!, wa, kicked by a hone at bbaron, in Taliaferro oonnty, a few days ago. Hie j aw bone waa crashed badly, and he was considered to be seriously hart. Cnore —The cropa throughout Wilkes county are fiae as ever grew upon the ground. Noth ing bis failed exoept oom whioh waa planted on low'grounds. This haa be-n injured, and in some oases completely destroyed by overflows and by too runrh rsln. The oorn on nplands is as fine as the noil can prodnee. The cotton is superb where it baa been worked and we think a very foil crop will be gathered if no disaster overtakes it. Battxjcsxzkzs is Tallufzbbo Couhtt.— The good old county of Talllaferro, just across Little river from Wilkes, seems to be gettiog fall of rattlesnakes. A letter from a friend in Crawfordville informs n* that one wts killed on the IStb inat., two miles from that place, which had thirteen rattles. On the 14th one waa killed on tbe plantation of Dr. Ferktns, near tbe Fope plaoe. which meuurod five feet in length, eight and > half inches aronnd the body, and was the possessor of sixteen rattles and a button. On Monday, tha lltb, every large one was killed three or fonr miles from Crawfordville with thirteen rutiles. Another, said to be larger than any of tho above men- Uoned, waa seen a few days ago near the rail way a few miles above the town. Tux seme paper reports the commiaeion 61 a most brutal murder in that plaoe on last Satur day week, the victim being a negro named Hamp Banner, and the murderer a white man named William Sisson. Tha Gazette condemns the mnrder as a most infamous orime, and one that shonld be promptly punished. In all of which we heartily oonenr. It was a hor rible affair and deserves tbe swiftest, heaviest vengesneo of the law. Tna strike in the Granitevilie fsotory near Augusta has come to an end, the operators de ciding to resume work ou ths four woek's pay ment. Aunt ted at Pott Kotal —Tho Chroniole A Sentinel of Saturday has tbe following: The ship LudyDnfftrin arrived at tbe wharf in Port ltoynl Thursday night direct from Lir- irpool, which port ehe bfc .tuna -frith. She brings a miaoelUneona cargo of eleven hundred tons of freight for the cities of Anguata and Sivannah. This ia the second trip that the Lady Dofforin haa made from Liverpool to Fort Boyal. The captain reports thirty feetof water on the bar. There ia a great necessity for a cotton press for compressing cotton for foreign ahipment-t at Port ItpyaL The Captain of the Lady Dnfferinregret* not fioding cotton presses, which he eaya would enable him to take his cargo of cotton at a cost of five hnndred pounds sterling less, to say nothing of the expense of twenty or thirty days delay. We are indebted to Captain Moore, Superintendent of the Fort Koval Koad, for tbe above information. Tbe “Ladv Dnfferin** haa 1,000 tons of ties on board—700 for Messrs. Warren, Wallaoe & Go , and 600 for morehania in Savannah. The vessel waa oonaigned to tbe order of the above named firm, at Fort Boyal harbor. This is di rect trade in earneat, a beginning of what Is to be done in the fntnre. The Savannah local news of Saturday may be briefly summed up. A baggage wagon driver named Edward MrCormick, had one of hia legs broken by the ki jk of a horse ; and a negro boy named Joe Green, was probably fatally injured by being strnck ou tbe head by tha hoisting block of the steamship Sun Salvador. The Athens Georgian reports the burning, by an Incendiary, one night last week, of a barn belonging to Mr. Eugene Heard, of El* bert county, with 200 tnabclsof wheat and a mnlo. Athens mnst bennoommonly ahoriof change. Tho Georgia suya: A man tendered a twenty-doilar bill to an other in payment of an aoooQnt Monday after noon. They at once adjourned to the frit store to change it, end right afterwards to the store adjoining and fo on down the street. When last heard from they were working towards Au gusta, and ono of tbe party had sent for hi9 winter clothes. The same paper tells the champion ‘‘whop per" of tbe seawa. It cau go ahead without doubt, it says: A Man Goes Fishiso on the Sabbath and Gmwe to A Bock.—There ia a report prevalent on ocr Rtreets that a man, living near Scull's Shoals, about twenty miles below this city, told his wife to wake him np before “old God Al mighty woko on Sunday,” aa he wanted to catch a mesa of JLh' for breakfast. Hia wife, in ecoordanoe with bis ioatraotiona, called bim before day Sunday morning, and betaking his fishing tackle, went to the stream, and finding a tempting bole, lock hia seat upon a rock — His wife awaited anxiously for his arrival, but he not appearing toward eight she sum moned some neighbors and went in qneet of the truant. Going to the stream, aha found the miesing man seated upon a rock, and upon the party requesting him to get up and accompany them home, he told them that the Almighly had sent a judg ment upon him and be had beoome apart of the rock and eonld not move, llis friends, think ing that he waa only jesting, took hold of him and attempted to move him, when be eom- menoed (creaming at tbe top of his voiee, and aiked them for God’s sake not to attempt to lift him np, as it wonld murder him. He farther informed them that he had be>'li informed by an nnaeen ptesenoe that, as a judgment for hit profanity and Sabbath bfeeking, be wonld never be severed from his present seat, bat would re- mein fastened to it all bia days, and that be wonld be made to preach his CUE funeral. They aay he lalKa quite freely, and 1.1 visited by ini- meose crowds from this and ad j doing oonntiea. Several parties, we learn, frciu this plaoe and Winiemlle, went to tee him il'edneedey, but has not aa yet returned. Wt only give tbe above as a rumor that has been prevalent in our city all tbe week. We will let uur readers bear the truth of it in onr next issue. Ex-PaxanJENT Davis.—Under this head the AngusisConstitutionalist haa the following: Many of the newspapers ere reflecting very severely upon ex P reel dent Davie on account of bia recent speech before the S ont hern Histori cal Society. The Cincinnati Enquirer thinks ibe ltadic.l leaders in Ohio have been famished with some first-cLam thunder by Mr. Da via, though what hia apeech baa to do with tbe Ohio campaign is not exaotly understood. The same paper thinks it rather strange that Mr. Davis should always break out into speech- making just on the eve of important elections. On thia point the Enquirer hast bit of personal history which is canons as a coincidence but otherwise valueless. It says: - • Before the war Daria waa s man wf action rather than words. He was reticent and said little. 11 cl since tba war he nas become garru lous. and embraces every opportunity to injure the oocatuntioua! party cf the Norih, and to sesist the BepabUcana. Davis ia an old per sonal friend of Grant. When, after the Mexi can war. Grant waa tried by a court-martial for varioas offense#and condemned to be ditmiased from the eervioe, Jefferson Davis, then Beerela- ry of War, overruled tbe sentence, and allowed Grant to honorably resign. To tbe tnflnenoe of Grant in his favor daring the early days at An drew Johnson’* Administration, when Johnson waa nailing for blood, tha preservation of Davis’ life ie generally attributed. It may be that be make these annnal speeches from grad rude to Grant, bat even this » no excuse for him." We do not' believe that Mr. Davis fixes any time for speech-making; and if the time hap pens to be inopportune, it ia, no doobt, a pure iccMera. But if it be trne, uu the Enquirer de clares, that Mr. Davis, by hie utmrenaa*. doe* the Democracy cf the West more harm than all tha Bepnolioah oraion put together, there ta soma question as to tbs discretion of bis public addresses. It may be tint lb* time has gone by what even • speech by Mr. Davis caj do fatal mtaehtof; but this ta not to certain. Pos sibly, it would be better for Mr. Dana if ba hid reposed, after his wonderful end dnmitio career, in that table-land where Lee dwelt in grandeur, calmly awaiting that Terdiot of eter nity which compensates good end 'has a retri button for every wrong. Still, this ta supposed to be > free eonntry, and Mr. Davie has a mnoh light as anybody else to “wreak his thoughts upon expression.” Tax Griffin News has these items: Wa are told that the boil worm haa made its appearance in thia eeotion of oonntry, bnt aa yet they have done very little damage. It ta thought that with a few days of hot dry weather tB>y will disappear. We also bear rumen of cater- pillar, bnt wa do not kno# the troth of this. They have never done gby harm in Middle Georgia, and might do some good by catting off the leaves and giving ootton a ehanoe to mat ore. A Waoxs on TH* Cotton Caop.—A gentle man ia this city ha* made a wager on the cot ton crop of 187S, of e suit of clothes valued one hundred and fifty dollan. and which his been taken up, ta follows: L That the shipment from Griffin for the ootton year oommeneing on the 1st of Septem her, will not bo 10 per oent. lees than that of the preceding year. 3. That tbe crop in Georgia for 1873 is not less that of 1672. 3. That the growing crop will exused four millions of bales. 4 That the orop of i S73 will exceed that of 1872. 6. That there ta a seventy acre field of eotton not a thousand miles from Grifflu, that will make forty bales. fcTBANo Ret rotor i Zzal —Wa have learned at one of toe colored chnrohcs a few miles from the city, at which a revival has been going on for soma time, that the zeal of the members has ran into fanaticism, or perhaps more pro perly speaking a wild, ungovernable excitement We are told that numbers of them etrip them selves, form a ring, march aronnd singing and shouting nntil they give wuy from sheer ex haustion. The wildest ent’uasiasm prevails, and the soenes are indescribable. A man who profesaea to hi-a beon intimate with yonng Tiohborne many ^ ears ago in Eng- land, and who asserts his ability to deolde whether tha claimant ta the genuine Tiohborne or not, baa unexpectedly been heard from at Springfield, Illinois. His name'ta John Grow ley, acd he is ssid to be a well-known veterinary snrgeon in the disiriet where be lives. He states that hia mother kept a hotel at Clogher, Ireland, and daring ths time Sir Boger wa 1 stationed with his regiment at Oahir barraoks he beoama quits intimate with the yonng barontt. A washzbwoman in Toledo reoentiy brought suit against a yonng man to reoover $1U 62 for services rendered. The case oame up before the oonrt, when the defendant put fortrrrd as an offset a bill (gains, the plaintiff for damage done to his feelings by tbe plaintiff having com pelled herdanghier to break off her engagement with him, whioh he assessed at $19 62. The plaintiff admitted the truth of the allegation, but demurred to the amount, but the court thought the olaim a good one, and dismissed, the case. Fostmasteb Pattzbscn, of Methuen, Mssia- chusetta, appointed last year at the instance of Batter, 1s original in bis method of resenting newspaper criticism. Mr. Charles E. Trow, editor of the Methnen Gazette, seats bundle of papers, postage paid, to be distributed through the mail, but hia agent was told that they could not pass through tbe post office. Mr. Trow went to ascertain the ressou, and was assaulted by the postmaster. Patterson was sentenced to pa; a flue of $20 and oosts, from which he appealed. The illness of John Graham, tha noiorious criminal lawyer of New York, ia said to be the result of overwork. He sometimes used to sleep only three or four hours out of the 24. He ta reported as saying that all New York eonld not induce him to take a fee for the pros ecution in any ciuo involving a charge of mnrder. It ie thought ho will be able to re sume hia work by October. The Yellow Fetes in Pensacola.—The Montgomery Advertiser contains a dispatch dated tbe 221, teem the acting Mayor of Fen aacols, which says: There have been fivo deaths in this city with in the last two wo.Icq supposed to be yellow fever. 1 have oonsnlted the leading physicians to day and they report tbe oity in a healthy con dition.

August 19, via Foet Bentos, Mora., August 23.—The abundance tbe preparations whioh the Yellowstone expedi tion made for ths reception of the Indians, has been fsily justified. Angnst 4th, General Cus- tar, with Bloody Knife and a squadron of oav- alry, had been detailed by General Stanley go on seven miles in advanee of tbe wagons and lock np the rood. Having gone about ten miles ahead they halted and pioketod their hones in a wood by the river to wait for the train. Two boon afterward six Indian! ap peared on the plain and made demonstrations toward the camp. Tha dismounted troops were formed in line and akirmtahen wets thrown ont and horses saddled. Tbe Indians ware easily driven off, bnt proved to be a decoy of a targe party in tbe neighboring woods waiting in ambush for the oavalry. Finding tbe rate had failed, the In dtana, to the nnmber of three hnndred, boldly rode out and advanoed on tha grove oeonpied by tbe oavalry. General Caster had only one squadron of eighty men, nnder the command of Captain Mayle. The men again dismounted and formed a skirmish line. The Indiana also dismounted, and formed a line in a semi-oirole around the oavalry, who had the river at their becks. Bapid firing waa kept np at a distance of four hundred yards. Gan. Cos tar deferred charging, hoping the main command wonld noon oome np and assist in capturing tha Indians. After -.hr at hours’ fight bta ammunition gave out and he then charged tbe Indiana, who precipitately retreated, dropping their equipments. After retreating several miles they took to the bad lands. One man was slightly wounded in tbe arm and one horse wounded, which formed the extent of Caster's loss. While the fight was going on, several Indians left the war party in Bench of stragglers Horn the train. Coming upon Dr. Hooainger, vete rinary surgeon, and Mr. Bolarin, oavalry sutler, who were less then n mile from Culnma, they killed them and took their clothes and val uables. Private John Bali, of the oavalry, while out hunting, met a similar fate. In this fight two Indians were killed sod several wounded. They loot several ponies General Stanley directed General Custer to take oavalry numbering fonr hnndred and fifty men, aud follow the trail, and if possible, over take and punish the Indiana. General Oastar left on the night of the 8th. On the morning of AngU9t 11th, at daylight, he was attacked by abont eight hnndred In dians, who oame down to the river and fired on hia oamp. The firing waa returned for two or three hours, both parties using treoa as a oover. A party of three hundred Indiana then oroased the river above and below tne camp and en deavored to gain the bluffs in tbe retr. The men dismounted, and posted on the bluffs, reoeived them bravely. The Indians behind ridges kept np a galling fire nutil Oastar ordered a oharge. The men then mounted and pursued them hotly for eight miles. Just at this time a train oame np a:d opened on the Indians across the river vritli artillery. A few shots dispersed them and ended the fight. This battle, which took plaoe within two miles of Bighorn, waa a fierce one. Oastar and Adjutant Ketoham bad their horaea shot under tnem. Lientent Broden was badly shot in tha thigh; private Tattle, General Oustar’a orderly, w.s killed, aud twenty soldi' ra slightly wounded. Four horses were killed and three wounded. Tbe Indian loss is estimated at forty killed and wonnded. TUe Indians wore well armed w fh heavy rifles, aud abundant ammunition, borne of them were dressed in clothes procured at the agency.
