An employe of the Dartmouth factory, at
Augusta, stated Wednesday that a number
of the hands appeared in the office of Supt.
Maxwell Wednesday morning, and made
complaint of continued bud treatment at the
hands of head overseer Murray. Among
the delegation, so the report went, wore sev
eral of the female operatives, who were
prominent in the dissatisfaction. Mr. Max
well then gave the matter thorough investi
gation, after which he discharged Overseer
Murray and promoted Mr. George Lynch to
the position. Last night a reporter called
on Supt. Maxwell, and after relating the
above, inquired if it was correct. He re
plied that it was not, and stated further that
it was Mr. Murray who was dissatisfied with
his position. He had asked to be relieved,
in order to return to his home in Philadel
phia, and his request was granted. This,
Mr. Maxwell said, was the true state of
At Athens Bob Reaves still lingers in
pain, but his chances for life are slightly
better. Wednesday morning the ball was
removed, and proved to be a 38-calibre. It
was not so near the skin as was at first sup

one and Mr. Heaves seemed to surfer a great
deal during its performance. He soon ral
lied, however, and fell into another slumber
which was comparatively tranquil. Dr.
Benedict says that an investigation of liver
wounds shows that <l4 per cent, die, which
gives Mr. Reaves about 3C> per cent, to sur

and has every care that medical skill and
kind friends can bestow. Tuesday night
parties were started out in every direction
in search of Mr. Murray. He has not been
found, but his family and friends say be

Stretched out upon the hard floor of the
depot at Macon Wednesday lay a negro man
0 feet 5 inches tall, his hands being hand
cuffed. The unfortunate person was Leon
ard Johnson, and his home is in Berrien
county. He was being carried to the State
lunatic asylum at Milledgeville, and was in
charge of Sheriff J. R. MeCranie, of that
county. Johnson has been suffering for
years with a tenable sore on his leg, and has
not walked u step for years, until one month
ago, when ho lost his mind. He arose one
night and walked seven miles—a raving,
desperate, dangerous maniac. When cap
tured he had torn his clothing from his body
und was a frightful sight. In a moment,
almost, his strength was changed from that
of a weak, helpless mail to that of a lion.
His hands had to be kept tied to prevent him
from disrobing himself. The negro had the
wildest and most ferocious look about him
imaginable, ami during his stay nt the depot
ho bad to be constantly watched like some
captive beast of prey.
The Farmers’ Convention, to meet in At
lanta on Aug. 1(1, will he one of the largest
and most representative b<xlies of men that
have over assembled in the South. Intelli
gent und well-informed menengugod in agri
cultural pursuits from the Southern States,
in many instances, doubtless, uccompanied
by the latlies of their families, will gather in
Atlanta at that time. The Governors and
Commissioners of Agriculture of the several
States have exorcised great care in select
ing delegates. Bona fide farmers have
been appointed, not mere theorists,
who in the retirement uffordod by a well
stockist library write articles upon agricul
ture, but men engaged in the actual culti
vation of the soil, who personally direct and
superintend their planting interests. The
object of the convention is toullowan inter -
change of views and ideas, and to see if out
of the general discussion that will take
place, some sensible, well matured plan,
looking toward the amelioration of
the planting interests, cannot be devised.
The impression is well nigh universal that
the farmers of the South, except in rare
cases, are not doing as well as they ought to
do, and the mnin and primary object of the
convention looks toward the improvement
of the farmer’s oondition.
The term of the United States court that
has just closed at Macon was rather phe
nomenal in the amount of business done.
There were on the civil docket, in common
law, equity and scire facias, just eighty-two
cases at the beginning of the term. Of
those, twenty-four common law, eleven
equity and t wo scire facias cases were dis
posed of, leaving forty-five still pend
ing. In the Circuit Court eighteen
criminal cases were tried, of which eight
were convictions. In the district branch of
the court twenty-six criminal cases wore
tried, and twelve convictions resulted,
making of both courts a jioroontage of 5-11
convictions, or very nearly half. In
the two courts there are twenty-nine cases
still [-siding The jail was cleared of
ull prisoners save those who worecommitted
there as a part or the whole of their punish
ment. Court met at !> n. m., and closed
übout 1 p. m., and the session lasted twenty
nine days. Adding together civil and
criminal cases, we have u total of 155 cam's
called, of which eighty-one, over half, were
disposed of. The trial of those eighty -one cases
in twenty-nine days, lacked only six cases
of averaging three |>er diem, and some of
them were long, knotty, issues that required
two or three days to be tried. This work is
phenomenal, and shows that the officers of
the court, from Judge Bpoer down to the
janitor, were not idle.

Orlando Sentinel: Our neighbor to the
south of us complain that the South Florida
railroud did not adhere to their advertised
agreement to carry passengers on the
Fourth for lc. per mile. The rate from
Bartow to Sanford and return was $1 00,
when it should have been $1 70. It was
therefore cheaper to buy a ticket to Or
lando, the price of which was $1 30, and
then purchase one for Sanford for 45c.,
thus making the round trip from Bartow to
Sanford cost $1 75. Commenting on these
facts the Bartow Informant takes occasion
to compliment our obliging ticket agent as
follows: There is one more point in ques
tion, and one that caused considerable an
noyance, viz: The agent at Bartow would
not attempt to make change for any one.
For instance, if one guve huh $2 for a ticket
to Sanford (the fare being $1 90 as charged
by the agent) lie would not give back 10c. in
change as he should have done, but simply
say, “I can’t make change.” We saw him
refuse to give change in this way to more
than one, and every one applying for a
ticket was annoyed in some way by the
ticket agent. Now, at Orlando, when we
purchased our ticket, the gentlemanly agent
there made change for us without a word,
notwithstanding he had fifty times the
crowd around iiis window as did the agent
at Bartow, We learn that there were over
1,100 tickets sold in Orlando on that day.
