A wagon, bearing upon its bed ten bales
of cotton and drawn by eight oxen, drove
into Albany Thursday afternoon, and at
tracted considerable attention. The driver
sat perched upon one of the whoel yok“, and
hurled his whoas and haws at Buck and Ball,
and tapped other individual oxen of his team
with his far reaching whip. Upon inquiry
the team was found to be owned by Hon. P.
AY Jones, of Baker county.
Fort Valley Mirror: There is no use
longer holding to the delusion that we are
going to make a good cotton crop. It is
going to be a very’ short one. Up to a
month ago, it was the finest we had had for
many years, but about two weeks of rain
and a subsequent crop of caterpillars, boll
worms, rust, blight and every other disease
known, has ruined the prospect for any
thing like an average crop.
On Wednesday evening last, two negro
men, Richard Richardson and Ahe Fore

Jeff Mitchell, an old colored resident of
Milledgeville, while in the bed Friday morn
ing, discovered thnt the thigh bone of one
leg was broken. He e&ilod in medical aid,
and while the physicians hail him standing
on his other log to enable them to arrange
the splints of the broken limb, the weight
of the body caused the bone of that leg to
break between the knee and and ankle joint.
This is undoubtedly a strango thing to peo
ple generally, but the doctors say it is what
they call nsteo sarcoma, a disen-e of the
hone which causes it to waste away and
lose its strength, when breaking of the limb
necessarily ensues. A minister of the Pres
byterian church in this State lost one of his
arms in the same way within a year or two
past. His arm was amputated, and he soon
recovered his usual health.
A rather curious case, and one which illus
trates the negro’s idea of law, was heard by
Justice Poe at Macon Friday. A woman
namod Mary Williams separated from her
husband, Curtis, and went to Savannah.
Believing that separation was equivalent to
a divorce, she married a man named How
ard. After living in Savannah several
months, she returned to Macon and sought
her first husband. Prior to leaving Macon
she Imught a suite of furniture, which she
said was her daughter’s, and the bill was so
made out. Soon after her return here bus
band No. 1 died, and last June she followtd
him. AVhen husband No. 2 heard of her
death he came to Macon and took possession
of the furniture, saying he was his wife’s
heir. The daughter now comes forward
and claims the furniture, not only as her
mother’s heir but that the furniture was
originally bought in her name and intended
for her. A possessory warrant followed,
and Friday Justice Poe gavo her the furni
Fort Gaines Star: Mr. Pugh Kirkland,
who has been away some days visiting rela

the following snake story: It seems that he
and others wore fishing when he discovered
a very large water moccasin near by. Pro
viding himself with a stick, he gave battle,
and soon succeeded in annihilating his
writhing antagonist. Conceive of his
horror, Tiowever, when immediately another
live amt well snake crawled from the mouth
of the dead one and continued the fight. It
in turn was finally dispatched, when behold
another one, just, arise smaller, ajqieai’ed on
the scene, and again the battle proceeded
with fury. Having disposed oi this one,
still another came to the front, which in
turn was followed by others, until ho had
slain fifteen or fifty-one, and we have for
gotten which. But at any rate, they were
still coming promptly to time as every
round was called, when Pugh became ex
hausted and throw up the sponge, and be
took himself to flight.
At Mcßean recently an aged negro couple,
Simon and Amiky Norman, was attacked
at their home during the night by four in
toxicated men and treated in a shameful
manner. A portion of the house and fence
were torn down and the man, aged about SO
years, driven into the swamp, several shots
having been fired at him as he fled for
his life. After fretting all night in the
nun-assets, he crept back to his unpretentious
domicile, expecting to find the bloody corpse
of his dear old helpmeet; but in this ho was
agreeably surprised. Though nearly fright
ened to death, she was still alive
The parties who committed these
depredations are three white men, Charles
and Brit .Smith, the other unknown, and
Freeman Youuglood, a negro. The white
men deny all connection with the affair,
and say that it was Youngblood who did
the damago and shooting. They were in
the vicinity, but hail nothing to do with the
trouble. Capt. Purcell has given the mat
ter his earnest attention, and says the case
will be placed before the grand jury. It is
said the dynnns furnished old man Binion
with nails and sufficient lumber to make all

The finding of the dead and mutilated
body of IVimus Wright alongside the South
Carolina railroad track, beyond Hamburg,
is still fresh in the mind at Augusta.
Considering the position of the remains and
surrounding circumstance*. the great ma
jority of people would conclude, as did the
coroner’s jury, that, a locomotive pilot had
done the fatal work. Very little faith was
placed in this idea, however, by some of
those who had heard the testimony, and
then it became noised about that the man
had been murdered and his body placed
near the track, in order to bring about the
supposition that his death hail Tieen caused
by the train. It was also stated that an un
known mulatto man, who had accom
panied AVright down the track,
had disappeared, and that the satch
el AVright carried was not found
with the remains. Again, those who knew
were of the opinion that the wound on the
deal man's head could hardly have been
caused by the engine. The most startling
part of th*‘ affair is a rumor heard on the
streets Friday that several parties who had
visited the fatal spot, with very little trouble
discovered a tell-tale track of blood leading
from the swmnp below to the place where
the body was found. An effort was made
to get positive information on the subject,
but without success.

Much misapprehension linving existed ns
to the true status of tbe H. S. Kedney’ lemon
plantation at Crown Point, the following
facts may be of general interest,. There are
three separate groves of 7,200 trees, em
bracing sixty-eight acres (in round numbers
seventy) and four and a half more in nur
sery. Tbe grove was originally all orange,
and though but five years old was budded
three years ago with the Villa Franka
lemon. Scattered over the whole extent
are, however, a few solitary orange trees,
and one solid grove of them, five acres in
extent, soon to tie converted, tiy budding,
into lemon stock. No less than fifteen
acres will probably be added to
the seventy anove named the coming
season, anil, if arrangements can he
made, twenty or thirty more. The product
this season will be 500 crates nnd average
from $5 to $8 per crate. The first monthly
shipment was made the latter part of last

lemons ripen, for three or four months.
At Titusville Friday, C. R. Cook, a prom

entirely unprovoked. The cause oi the assault
by’ Cook, as far as can lie learned, was on
account of his being annoyed last night by-

by her playing the piano to a late
hour. There was but one shot
fired, tile ball passing through Hoyt's

Editor* Constitution: Why is it that so
many of tho respectable white people of this
country claim blood affinity with the negro
race by condescending to call them "aunt’’
and "uncle?" An “aunt” Is a fathor’s or
mother's sister, an “uncle” is a father’s or
mother's brother. Now, why should a
negro lie made to believe thnt, he is a blood
relation of white families by calling them
“aunt" and “uncle," terms of the highest
family respect? Is there any wonder that
some negroes think they are as good as a
whiteman, when they are called by these
endearing names? The negro is an imitator

DR. -WESTMORELAND'S REPORT.
Tha Condition of tbe Whipped Man
Described to the Governor.
Dr. AA r . F. Westmoreland, the principal
physician of tbe penitentiary, mate a writ
ten report to the Governor Friday in regard
to the rendition of the four men at Bing
ham’s camp, who had been sp unmerci
fully and inhumanly whipped bv C. C.
Bingham, the superintendent and whipping
Dr. Westmoreland’s report was on file in
the executive office, and it is given below in
Atlanta, Aug. 20, 18S7.
To His Excellency, John B. Gordon:
Sib—ln compliance with your order I
visited, on yesterday, Aug. ‘25, the convict
camp on the line of the Georgia Midland
railroad, known as Bingliams camp, and
carefully examined the convicts that had
been so brutally whipped just one week be
fore. I only saw four of the six that had
been reported to you by the principal keeper
ana assistant of the penitentiary, the other
two, less severely whipped, was with the
working squad, six or eight miles from the
hospital The four that I found in the hos
pital, ordered there the day before by the
principal keeper of the penitentiary, were
Hardy Mobley, William Slaughter, Cor
nelius Fowler anil George Burney.
Hardy Mobley I found very severely
whipped, not only bad the skin lieen de
nuded from both buttock to the extent of
three inches or more in diameter, but on one
side the contusion or bruising beneatl* tho
skin was very severe as I found yesterday, a
week after tbe whipping, the swelling and
enduration the thickness of an inch and a
half or more beneath the abraded skin. In
addition he had other marks of the lash.
AViliiam Slaughter had tbe same denuded
point over the buttocks, more extensive per
liajjg, but did not have the deep contusions
or bruises as in the case of Mobley. He,
like Mobley, had other points of abraded
skin, perhaps more numerous than Mobley.
The other two, Cornelius Fowler and
George Burney, did loot have abrasions of
the skin from the la-ili to the extent of the
other two, but sufficiently extensive and
severe to demonstrate that they had received
an unmerciful whipping. Respectfully sub
mitted, W. F. AYKSTMORELAND,
Principal Physician to Penitentiary.
Tho four convicts who were so inhuman
ly punished received the immerciful chas
tisement on a Friday night, and notwith
standing the pain and exhaustion that nat
urally followed upon such an outrage, they
were nevertheless put to work, and were
found at work when the penitentiary offi
cers visited the camp Wednesday evening.
Tbe sufferings of the poor wretches must
have tieen intense, ,as their bruises, contu
sions and cuts were enough to send an ordi
nary man to bed for some days.
