V. Tharp who lives about six miles from
Americus, on the Southwestern Railroad,
toward Macon. He ordered them off his
premises. Wednesday night about 11
o’clock, his gin house was set on fire, by
them and destroyed. There were four bales
of cotton, the seed from twenty-one liales
and a #250 gin, beside the building burned.
One of the tramps was seen leaving the
Americus Republican: Ben Wheeler says
that he started to California in 1840, when
th 71 gold fever raged so over the country.
He bought a pick, a pair of cowhide boots,
end some other fixtures, and went to Dan
ville on the Flint, and when the man he was
going out with saw him, he went crazy and
was put in the asylum. That ruinod his
chances of getting to the golden shores of
the sunset State, and he came t>ack to Amer

been bothered with riches, like Flood, Fair
and Crocker, and he is glad that he stayed
at home, where he has taken the world easy,
lived in pleasure and ease, happier than they
with all their riches and troubles.
Athens Banner- Watchman: On Wednes
day night last about 11 o'clock the sluintier
ing inmates of the Lucy Cobb Institute
were aroused by a violent ringing of the
front door bell. On examination it was
found that a large size calf had lieen led up
into the front porch and tied to the door
bell. His friends having deserted him the
animal decided I e would vacate the ritua
tion, consequently the bell which rang pro
fusely for some time was broken, and the
inmates badly frightened. The next ques
tion is who could have done this? Was it a
member of the University of Georgia?
Certainly not. Was it a resident of the
city? No. Who was it? It was the calf
Friday morning James Bass, of the
Twenty-eighth district of Sumter county,
found tracks of a large animal around hiis
pig pen, and immediately started his dogs
after it. They soon jumped a large wild
cat. which seemed to be as big as any of his
dogs. The animal ran about a mile and a
quarter and found that it could not shake
its pursuers, turned on them ferociously,
and for a half hour, gave them a terrible
clawing. Tho cat would climb tqion a
branch, give on angry growl, and light
upon a dog’s back, fifteen feet off, carrying
him to the ground. The other dogs would
pile in, and young Bass helped all he could,
with a heavy pole. The cat was finally
killed, but the dogs will need lots of patch
ing and nursing to fit them up for another
fight of that sort.
Jack Rivers, a hard-working and well
thought of young man who lived near Ar
lington, came to his death last Thursday
evening by a very singular accident. He
had been to that evening
and was returning home, when at Rivers’
Crossing, four miles east of Arlington,
the mule became frightened at some
thing and threw him from the buggy.
He was thrown forward, and in falling
his head got caught in the running (bar of
the buggy iu which he was riding, and his
neck was broken. In this maimer he was
dragged home by the mule. He was alone
when the accident occurred, the place of
accident having been ascertained by indi
cations of a struggle at the place named.
Mr. Rivers was the main stay and support
of his mother and sister, and was a deserv
ing young man in other respects. He was
about 23 years of age.
Americus Rejmblican: A prominent and
truthful gentleman told us that he was in
fermed that the grave of an old gentleman,
who died several months since, in an adjoin
ing county had been desecrated and the body
robbed and replaced in the earth. He said,
a few months ago, an old and much es
teemed gentleman died. He was pretty
wealthy, and well known in Americus. He
was buried in a very handsome coffin, cost
ing S3OO, if not more, and his grave clothes
were of tho finest material. as
his family didn't care for ex
pense, and thought their love and affection
could not be shown in a more appropriate
form to tho deceased. He was placed in tho
grave and they returned to their grief
stricken home. A few days ago a man
walked by the grave, and was attracted to
it by a large number of green flies and the
disturbed condition of the grave. Surmis
ing that something was wrong, ha went to
the lata home of the deceased, reported
what he had observed at the grave, and an
investigation proved that tho body had been
exhumed, the coffin and grave clothes stolen
and tho body hastily thrust back mid
re-covered with dirt only a few inches
below the surface of tho earth. It was
greatly decomposed, and emitted such hor
rible stench as to nearly suffocate the par
ties employed to reinter it. It is supposed
that the robbery took place soon after the
burial, as no one could hardly have stolen
tho things, while the fearful stench rested
on them without being discovered. We
have been requested to withhold the names
of the family’ and that of the dead man, un
til the guilty parties can be detected and
brought to punishmeut, it possible. But in
view of the fact that there are so many
tram| >s around, It is possible that some of
them may have committed tho deed and
run the article* off and disposed of them in
tome large city.

Madison Recorder: Judge Witherspoon
reixiri.s a singular occurrence in the follow
ing; Before day last Sunday morning a ser
vant was dispatched to the stables to food
tho stock preparatory for an early start to
the country by some members of the
family. Returning, ho was startled to seo
a large bright light in a tree which
stood near the house, the light appearing
to lie upon a limb which hung directly
over the roof. He called for assistance
and a ladder being procured the tree was
scaled, and it was discovered that the fire
originated from a spark from the chimney
falling into the fork of the tree and feeding
upon the dry wood of the decayed limb and
other matter which found a lodgment
therein, and had aim st burned the limb in
two. Had this occurred earlier in the night
no doubt the house would have been con
sumed. As no fire had lieen in the chimney
since tho day before it is presumed that the
limb had been burning all night.
Gainesville Adcocate: For some time past
domestic felicity has not reigned supreme
with Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Johnson, of North
Gainesville. On the contrary, life with
them has been very discordant, owing, it is
said to the actions of Mr. Johnson. He left
yesterday morning sometime before day
light, taking their only child, a boy of four
years old, expressing his intention of driv
ing out for a few miles to collect some
money owed him. When daylight came
Mrs. Johnson discovered that "her husband
had taken with him all his wearing
apparel, and had evidently left with the
child with no intention of returning. Bhe
came to the city and had a writ issued for
the recovery of the child. The document
was placed in the hands of Deputy Collins,
who immediately started in pursuit of the
travelers, but up to last night nothing liad
been heard from them. Mr. Johnson
came here from Alabama six or seven years
ago, and was shortly afterward marriod to
the woman he has now so mysteriously de
serted. If the child can lie recovered, no
special efforts will be made to induce Mr.
Johnson to return.
Pensacola Commercial: It has now
transpired that the hasty construction put
upon i lie telegram announcing the success
of G. W. Gonzalez, in tho mandamus writ
taken to tho Supreme Court, was faulty,
and that, while the associated contractors
gained a victory, the result for them is
practically a defeat, as the writ was grant
ed upon the old law, which prescribes a
license without an examination for com
petency. The Collector’s office has been
flooded all day by colored stevedores who
have been procuring licenses, ns manv as
sixteen, it is said, having been licensed by
10 o'clock. It is highly proba: le, so a re
porter of the Commercial
is informed, that the “pool” will go to
pieces, and that it will be a caso of
“the divil take tho hindmost.” It is posi
tively asserted, however, that the Steve
dores’ Benevolent Association No. 1 will
keep aloof from tho colored man, uud work
only on vessels employing A’liite men exclu
sively. The association contractors claim
that the tight is not yet done with, and that
It will bo continued as soon as their counsel
returns to the city. Their new line of action

prescribes that the Pilot Commissioners
shall examine all stevedores and grant per

cants as may prove competent.

Camden Journal: It is an outrage upon
tlie good citizen who pays his lax os, as he
has to pay for the delinquent as well as his

thus relieve the good citizen from the unjust

At Greenville Thursday the court was
busy all day in tho trial of Jack Griffin for
complicity in the Air Line railroad robber
ies of last fall. Griffin is a big, burly clean
shaven, red-faced man, thoroughly “horsey”
in appearance and speech. He came here
from the Piedmont races in the winter of
1885, and at the time the robberies occurred
lie was quartered at the fair grounds with
Heath’s raring stables, which were being
wintered there. The stolen goods were
found in the fair grounds. For a long time
Griffin was believed to be the ringleader in
the robberies. Much sympathy has been
felt for him, however, and when
the jury came into the court
room and gave a verdict of "not
guilty,” there was a momentary but vigor
ous outburst of applause from the crowd
standing before the railing of the bar. This
disorder aroused J udge Pressley’s indigna
tion. He ordered the Sheriff to lock the
court room doors and then to bring before
him tlie parties guilty of disorderly conduct.
The Sheriff could not identify them, and a
numlier of the audience were brought before
the Judge and questioned. They every one
denied it except D. C. Moore, who was ex
cused as being one of the defendants in the
cases, and, therefore, excusable. Afterward
John Mayfield, Robert Fleming and a negro
were reported as having joined in the ap
plause. Mr. Mayfield was fined, and Mr.
Fleming, having denied the charge, is to
. have a trial.

receipt of your very gratifying letter, I be
came so ill as necessarily to postpone this
acknowledgement of it. It would
have given me sincere pleasure to
meet you ns invited. South Carolina has
always boen the object of my affectionate
admiration, for the same reasons which
have made her the object of vengeful ha
tred to the enemies of the South. Your
children, and your children’s children, will
have cause to preserve with reverential pride
the record of South Carolina’s career, from
the date of her Colonial existence
down to the date of the meeting of
your society. Her sons have left
to poster ity brilliant examples of patri
otic heroism, and not less valuable are the
lessons taught by her sage of constitutional
govertMinmt and community indepen
dence. The teaching of Rutledge, of
Cooper and Calhoun are a rich
legacy to mankind in favor of the only sys
tem of government which has ever had the
sanction of Divine inspiration. 1 have
named but three from the long roll of
South Carolina’s statesmen whose wisdom
and patriotism are enduring monuments of
the State to which they give lustre. Long
may the coming generations emulate the
examples their fathers have left them.
Again thanking you, gentlemen, both for
myself and for my family, for your kind
inVitatioij, which it would have been to
them and to mo a sincere pleasure to accept,
