One night last week while two brothers by
the name of Jenkins, living near Sawdust,
Columbia county, while out hunting, bayod
a ’possum in a log, and while the elder
brother was cutting the log the other at
tempted to pass him, but his foot slipped,
Causing him lo fall under the blade of the

Tuesday afternoon when the Southwest
ern train was entering t'ue union depot at
Macon a negro man and white girl, who had
been standing on the platform of tire rear
coach, jumped off, and were seen to go to
gether up Plum street without going
through the depot. Their conduct had been
noticed on the train by the passengers, and

At Lincolnton Monday a difficulty oc
curred at Tyler's mill between the lti-year
old son of Thomas Cai-tledge and a colored
l>oy by the name of Tom Strother, in which
the latter was killed, It apuears that the
negro had used some r ather impudent lan
guage to young Cartledge a few days previ
ous to the affair, for which the latter had
struck him, and Monday, when they met at
the mill, the difficulty was renewed by the
negro, who seized a crowbar and started
toward the youth as if to strike him with it,
when the latter struck him several blows on
the head with a stick, causing his death
Tuesday. Coroner Knox was immediately
summoned and an inquest was held, the
verdict of the jury being justifiable homi
There has been no appointment vet in the
office of Solicitor-General of tile Stone
Mountain circuit. The Leglature declared
there was a vacancy in the office, but there
appears to be some doubt about the matter.
It is understood that Attorney-General An
derson will give an opinion in regard to the
matter. So far there has been but one ap
plication for the appointment, that being
made by Col. John S. Candler, of DeKulb
county. The friends of the present incum
bent, Solicitor-General Jones, have hud sev
eral conferences with Gov. Gordon, tho ob
ject being understood to be protesting against
the appointment of any one else other than
the present incumbent. It is likely that
some time will elapse before the matter is
settled, in the meanwhile Solicitor-General
Jones performs tho duties of the office.
The vacancy in the Agricultural Depart
ment, caused by tho death of Prof. Mc-
Cutchen, has already excited the attention
of several parties. Among those who have
applied is William Warning Habersham,
M. E., who lias contributed a nuiulter of
articles to the Dixie Magazine upon the
mineral resources of Georgia. The office
has no regular salnry attached to it, and
Commissioner Henderson said Tuesday that
it was exceedingly doubtful if the office
would be filled, and that if he concluded to
fill the vacancy he would be obliged to
choose someone who did not have as an ob
ject a large salary. Prof. McCutcheu was
confessedly tho best geologist in the State,
and the department realizes that it would be
almost impossible to find a man who has
the same amount of information in regard
to the geological formations in the State.
The following ex-Confederate soldiers,
Tuesday, received the benefits from the
appropriations made by the Legislature for
disabled soldiers: James L. Bond, Forsyth
county, received $lOO for the loss of both
eyes; lie was a corporal in Company U,
Thirty -sixth Georgia, Cumming's brigade,
and was wounded at the battle of Nashville.
R. W. Herod, Morgan county, received $25
for a disabled shoulder; he was a private in
Company B, Twenty-third Georgia, Phillips’
brigade, and was wounded at the battle of
Gres wold vilie. G. B. Millican, Pike county,
received $.50 for disabled rigid arm anil
right leg; he was a private in Company H,
Forty-fourth Georgia, Pole’s brigade, ami
was ut the battle of Gaines’ mill, seven days’
fight, “wounded through left hand witli
ball, and through right wrist with ball, and
in back on right hip by four different balls
passing out through right thigh, disabling
arm, leg, back and band.”
Dawson villa -Votes; Just before the mar
riage ceremony in the Methodist church last
Thursday night a circumstance occurred
which was a scathing reflection ujion the
good breeding of every person engaged in it.
Before the arrival of the bridal put ty a
number of persons, as they entered the
church and passed down the aisle, were
loudly cheered. Of course it is unnecessary to
say that a great majority of the people pres
ent, severely disapproved of the conduct.
We give two instances: A nice, refined and
well bred young lady, as she passed down
the aisle to the seats reserved for the
relatives of the bride and groom, was loudly
cheered. The minister who was to perform
the ceremony, and pastor of that church, as
he passed down the aisle to the pulpit, was
loudly cheered. This was repeated in two
other instances. The pastor, rising in the
pulpit, requested there should bo no further
stamping of the floor, reminding those en
gaged in it that they were in the Lord’s
house. It is almost imj#-sible to under
stand how a person of good breeding, who
claims to have any respect for young lady
hood, or for God’s ministers or God’s church,
could be guilty of engaging in such shame

The recent cold snap has undoubtedly

Remarkable Letter From a Georgia
Convi t Who Discusses Sundry Mat
from the Atlanta (Ga.) Constitution.
Dr. Willis Westmoreland, the principal
physician to the penitentiary, has a very
extensive correspondence, but it is doubtful
if that excellent surgeon ever reeeceived as
remarkable a document as the letter from
“J. W. Livingstone,” a convict on the At
lanta and Hawkinsville road, of the date of
Livingstone is rather an old man, white,
and is, perhaps, past 50 years of age. He
was sent from Mu.-cogee county for bur
glary, and has been in the penitentiary a
few years. His term is not a long one, As
sistant Keeper Shubrick remarking yester
day that he did not think it extended over
a longer period than six or seven years.
Very little is known of the history of Liv
ingstone, or of the causes that led hitn to
violate the law and get in his present en
tanglement, but it is believed that he is an
old sailor, as he shows a striking familiarity
with all matters pertaining, to sailing ves
sels, and has many of the characteristics
that belong to those who have spent years
before the mast.
Not long since Livingstone addressed to
the department presided over by Col. Tow
ers and Col. Shubrick a poetical romance,
in which the fictitious “Flyiijg Dutchman”
played a very Important part. The com
position was hat without merit, and while
it was very crude, it showed unmistakable
signs of genius, and gave additional theory
that its author was once a seafaring man.
Assistant Keeper Shubrick has the romance
in his possession, and intends making an
effort to dispose of it to some paper for the
benefit of the convict. Asa matter of
course, if it is bought it will be upon the
idea that it is a curiosity rather than a
But the letter first alluded to.
It is dated “Camp Ethiopia, near Means
ville, Ga.,” and is addressed to “Dr. Willis
Westmoreland, Atlanta, Ga.,” who is saluted
as “Dear Sir.” The author begins by saying:
Asa broken ankle and naked foot, with other
circumstances beyond my control, prevent me
from making prilgvimages beyond tne confines
of this unique zoological collection, I am forced
to appear before you in this guise In order to
get a hearing.
Spencer, Darwin and Huxley tell us that em
bryonic man, for two or three months after con
ception, is so nearly in appearance allied to
moles, asses, hogs, dogs, ami various other ver
tebrates in the same stage of existence, as to
defy an expert naturalist to tell which from
"tother.'’ These scientists also inform us that
at a period further on in existence, embryonic
man sjxirts a hairy robe from the sole* of his
feet to the crown of his head, including
whiskers, covering all the territory lying be
tween the chin and the eyes. Again, his spinal
column is adorned with a tail, which dwarfs his
legs when their length is compared. He then
surprises the beholders by projecting his hands
and feet sideways, like those of a baboon.
On these embryonic eccentricities naturalists
have based a t henry t hat man is an evolution
from the lower animals. To demonstrate man
the outcome of the animal kingdom, they. In
certain stages of embryonic existence, compare
him with all his ancestors in the same stage,
and triumphantly exclaim: “What is it? A
goat, a kangaroo, or a hog?”
If man is really an evolution from the lower
animals, such as the goat and the hog, why
should he not inherit many of their attributes?
I have never heard of a naturalist win w-ustains
such a theory, still it is plausible, and I doubt
not that many of them secretly sustain it. Ido
not know whether Dr Situs is a proselyte to the
evolution theory or not, but his actions lately
have caused me to suspect that he is, and that
he labors under the idea that some men inherit
the peculiarities of the beast from which they
Imbued with the idea that he detects in me
the “attributes,” if not the configuration of a
hog, (to discover whether or no, 1 am a
lineal descendant from tho uncult species, 1
have made investigation of my cotmleuance
through the medium of a mirror, and as T can
not detect sufficient testimony in niy features to

not encased in the natural shoes of a hog, I
most respectfully appeal to you for the purpose
of beggmg you to endeavor to eradicate such
ungodly theories from his mind. From the
moment my ankle was broken last spring up to
date my injured foot has been as naked ns it
was when I was born. 1 have repeatedly asked
him to get tne something that 1 can wear on it,
but it has amounted to just nothing. I am
forced to wade through mud and rain when
obliged to go out in bad weather. My foot is
still far from well, and will never lie with such
treatment. Will you kindly use your Influence
to force him to cover my foot. 1 earned wear con
vict shoes on it. It swells continually and pains
me greatly at times. Would you please advise
me what to do for it. Cant. James is in no w ise
responsible for its condition. Dr. Sims, thou
art the man. Very respeet|ully,
J. W. Livingstone.
The Dr. Sims alluded to Is the physician
at “Canip Ethiopia,” and It is apparent
that there is a very decided conflict of opin
ion between physician anti patient in regard
to the treatment of the wounded limb. It
seems the doctor thinks it best that the foot
should not bo covered, and the convict tak
ing issue with t im, appeals to higher au
thority. Dr. Westmoreland was at the
camp not long since, but it is not known
whether he covered the foot or not.
The letter is written in a neat hand, the
orthography and grammar as a rule good.
Whatever the convict may have lieeu, it is
evident that he has some education far
above that of the men who are his present
companions, ami in some way or other has
gained a smattering of science that lie uses
with some effect, though with not absolute
IJvingftone is entitled to the reputation
attached to the best informed convict in
“Camp Ethiopia.” It Is rumored that he
will prepare in his leisure hours Aerial
story in which convict life and treatment
will play a very important part. In the
meanwhile his effusions are collecting in the
