o’clock to give the Senators an opportunity

ley submitted a memorial from the Bruns

The House was called to order at !l o’clock
this morning. On motion of Mr. McCord, of
Richmond, his bill to appropriate $5,000
for repairs to the State University was
made a special order for Aug. 24.
The sjK’ciul committee to which was

bill which was ordered to be printed. Tho
report strongly approves the system.
Several motions wore made to adjourn, or
take a recess so as to allow the members of
the House to attend the meeting of the
agricultural convention, but all of them
were voted down.
Mr. Harper, of Carroll, offered the fol
lowing preamble and resolutions, which,
under the rule, lie over for one day:
Whereas, It appears upon investigation that
the Commissioner of Agriculture has furnished
badges to those member • who voted against the
bill known os the Brady bill, aad whereas, the
members who voted for the bill feel outraged
by such discrimination, therefore be it
Kt mlved. by the members of the General As
sembly, that those members who have no badges
be furnished itb them instanter
Srtulvrd further. That a badge on a member
of this body is no more a sign that the member
is a farmer than that a sack of guano has been
inspected when it has the Commissioner's tag
This was signed by Messrs. Harrell, Gard
ner, Brady and others.
AN ADVERSE REPORT.
A minority of the Committee on Finance
marie a long report adverse to the bill to

A FLIGHT FROM JAIL.
Three Negroes Make a Dash For Lib
erty at Louisville.
Louisville, Ga., Aug. 16.—Three ne
gines, named George Schley, Hersehel Cur
tis and Sam Scott, escaped from jail hero
last night. They were all confined in the
same cell, nnd their escape Is due, in a great
measure, to the carelessness of the jailer in
leaving the inner door to their cell open,
which they took from its hinges, placed
up against the wail and used as a ladder to
reach the ceiling, where, with the aid of a
knife and a chisel, they were enabled to rip
off a plank nnd get through into the garret,
and after getting there it took hut little ef
fort to knock oir one or two pieces of weath
er-tr larding and descend tho ground by
means of a blanket.
Schley is a most desperate character, and
was awaiting trial for an assault with in
tent to kill. Curtis was held for burglary,
having made a full confession as to how lie
entered the store of Messrs. Little & Clark
and made way with clothing and other mer
chandise. Scott was brought here a week
or two ago for throwing rocks into the
Augusta, Gibson and Sandersvillo train.
The,other prisoners sov they began work
alsmt 8 or 0 o'clock and aid not make their
escape until II this morning.
The jail is a disgrace to the county, lieing
a one-story frame building that is very in
securely built, and made of timbers scarcely
too heavy for a dwelling house. Tho ceiling
to the cell from which they escaped is only
one thickness of one-inch plank, and rafters
about two feet apart. As yet, no effort lias
been made to recapture them.

WAFTED FROM WELAKA.
A Man Sent to England to Induce Im
migration to the Welaka Section.
Wki.aka, Fla., Aug 16 —The Welaka
Land Company was organized at this place
about one year ago, and has been working
very industriously in the way of securing a
valuablo property, both improved and un
improved. The prospects of success were
such ns to warrant them in sending one of
their number, J. Russell Kennedy, to Eng
land for the purpose of inducing immigra

rection, and no doubt will lie crowned by
success. Mr. Kennedy is now on the sea on
his errand, and will be gone about two
months. There are many English set

Some Peculiarities of Climate That
Are Attracting Attention.
Belleview, Fla., Aug. 14.—What an
advantage it will he for newcomers in this
Stab- if there are ever any condensed and
simplified tables of climatic changes, cover
ing a period of several years, given to the
public. On our first arrival we wore first
astonished and then amused to find that
everything was exceptional. The natural
inference was that people were very forget
ful, and not accurate observers, to begin
with. A little experience has, however,
flven us more charity for said observers.
his is the third summer we have spent in
the State, and no two have, been
alike, scarcely similar. The first
season we had rain invariably coming
in short showers almost every day
for nearly four months. Last year there
were nearly as many days when we hud
rain, but the showers were much less severe
and more protracted, and it frequently
rained the whole day through. This year
the rain is coming again mostly in showers,
but after having showers every day for a
week or fortnight there is about the same
length of time with almost no rain at all.
We have recently seen the statement that
Florida lias a climatic cycle of about eight

An enterprising young man from Connecti

struck with the great amount of fine lum

vicinity, and determined to utilize some of
it by starting a manufactory of ax helves,
nnd similar articles. On exhibiting sam
ples of his goods to the dealers, the superior

grade of goods. It is to be hop

OAKLAND’S DEVOTED DESDEMONA
Stained Her Face and Hid Her Blonde
Hair to Marry a Negro.
Fro*a the Sew York Sun.
Nvack, Aug. 14.—Tho marriage of
Fanner Winter’s daughter Jenny, of Oak
land, to a mulatto, is curious in its way, be
cause it looks as if the girl had stained her
face and hid her blonde hair so as to pass
for a mulatto herself, and deceive the
clergyman atout her race, as she did atout
her age. She is 16 and the bridegroom is
21. He is James Mann, a farm hand on the
big Havemeyer stock farm near Darlington.
The ceremony was performed on July 30 by
the Rev. Mr. Mansfield, rector of the Buf
forn Episcopal church, and the couple are
living in a little house on the Ridge, about
half a tnilo east of Darlington.
Jenny is the daughter of Richard Winter,
of Oakland, a largo property holder, who is
now in ill health and is about 55 years old.
He was found yesterday at Darlington, at
the home of Mrs. Edward Rogers, a married
“1 do not know when niv daughter'Jenny
became oeqainted with Maun, but Ido not
think she has known him over a month. Bhe
frequently visited the Havemeyer farm. She
left homo two weeks ago to-day, in
the morning, and did not return
at night. I supposed she was hero
at my daughter's. Next day I heard
the rumor that she was married to
Mann, and was living oa tho Ridge. I went
to Mann’s brother’s house, where it was
said they were staying, and sure enough
found Jenny. I asked her to come home
with me and she said she couldn’t. I asked
her why and she made no answer. Mean
time, a little colored girl had gone to find
Mann and brought him home. I told him I
had come for Jenny, and ho said I couldn’t
take her. I asked him what he meant, and
he then went to another room and returned
with the marriage certificate. 1 offered
Jenny a farm to leavo him, but she would
A negro servant, who had been a listener,
chimed in with the assertion that “Mann is
a nice young fellow and his color is the only
thing against him.”
The Rev. Mr. .Mansfield, of Suffem, is a
tall, vigorous man, whose beard is just
turning from brown to white. He was
found seated on a fenco near the rectory
watching a game of base ball. He said
that he had performed the ceremony, but
he asserted that the girl was a mulatto, or
at least had negro blood in her veins. On
toing assured that such was not the case,
he expressed much surprise, and said that
he was confident that the witnesses to the
ceremony, members of his household, were
under the same impression as himself.
Jenny, according to Mr. Mansfield and the
parish register, said that, she was 18 years
oid. Her father says she was 16 in July.
“Of course, if she had said she was only
16,” said Mr. Mansfield to the Sun reporter,
“I would not have married them, but she
looked as if she was even older than 18.
Until you called, I was ignorant of the fact
that the girl is white. While I am sorry
the thing has occurred, the legality of my
act cannot to questioned, and I am not re
sponsible if tho girl lied to me concerning

clergyman sculed the base ball field fence

declared that ho thought Jenny was a

negro type. He told Mr. Winter that he
