A week or two ago a letter came to the post-office at this place directed to Prince. It con tained a bond for his appearance at court signed by It. D.

Some peculiarities in the form of the lioml excited the sheriff's suspi cion, and a close inspection satisfied him that it was a forgery. An investigation showed that the letter had been sent by Small from Carnesville, to be mailed at Marlin.

The rumor soon spread around (lie city Sunday aiternoon tha: Powderiy could not come to Au gusta, but that the next biggest man m the Knights of Labor oiganiza- tion would arrive. Yesterday morning the Clironicla's represen tative was on hand as the train crossed the bridge and boarded tire sutne. Mr. Frederick Turner, the Secre tary t>f the National Board of the Knights of Labor, was aboard, ac: compauicd by committeeman Mul len. On the at rival of the train they were received with cheers by a thousand of the operatives of the in 1 s, who had assembled to meet th^m. They drove to the Uloiie Hotel, the crowd quietiy dispers- ing. DURING TIIK FORENOON Mr. Turner was besieged by vis itors from every direction and por tion of the city; some desirous to see Mr. Turner through curiosity and others to pay their respects to the head of the order. Mr. Turner was visited by sever al citizens, and when asked bis opinion as to the difficulties, said that he wopld have to find the prop er condition of things before be could express an opinion. Till! CITIZENS MICET. The citizens held a secret meeting yesterday at iz o'clock, at the Li- I.-raty. They are making strenuous elTorts to adjust the difficulty. Com mittees weie appointed to wait upon Mr. Turner and also upon the factory Presidents. The meeting was private, hut this fact is estab lished—that it did take place, and that lilt committee waited on both tin- I’rssidents nnd Mr. Turner. It will, no doubt, be of consider able interest to know who MR. FREDERICK TURNER IS. Mr. Turner is Grand Secretary of the Knights of Labor of the United States, and is next isv position to the great Powderiy, by whom he i< sent to endeavor to adjust mat ters. FltKDF.HICK TURNER was born in 1S46, on the nth of May, in Siiminersctahire, .England In 1S56, at the age of ten, he came to America. lie is a graduate of the High School, Philadelphia. About the time of his graduation the « ar broke out. On account of his size he was too small to enter the nrmy, consequently he went into the Quartermaster’s depart meift. He is now five feet sij inches, ami weighs 175 pounds. Has dark brown eyes and hair, small mustache, tbund, full face, with clearly defined features. In his con versation he is conservative, and ex presses a desire for an amicable ad- lustmcnt of the present troubles. He is a gold beater by trade, but has been in the'grocery business for numl cr of year*,having 1 been black listed from his trade. SIR. TURNER ON TUB KNIGHTS. Mr. Turner said they would be able to show in a short while that the Knights of Labor were a bene fit to any community. Wherever they can inculcate the principles of the order, they are obliged to be law abiding and good citixcns. REASONS FOR COMING TO AUGUSTA The reporter asked Mr. Turner why he came to Augusta. He re plied; “I went last week to Rich monfi, Va-i to make arrangements for the meeting ol our General As sembly, which meets there onOcto ber 4. Mr. Powderiy received _ telegram from the Mayor of yaur city, asking him to come to Au gusta. Mr. Powderiy telegraphed me to corne in his stead. I am here and hope to be able to adjust the trophic. 1 have been visited during the day by operatives from; all the mills and citizens. GAINING INFORMATION. In order to gain information I met the executive committee of the different assemblies of‘the city of Augu-ta ard heard from them the grievance a in regard to the lockout and strike. Of course I had to hear both sides before I could act intel ligently. The object of my visit f» to adjust matters, and it will not be my fault If if is not accomplished. estover he'd. Speeches we’tc made by Messrs. Turner and Mullen. MR turner at Home. Mr. Turners was asked what he did at home. “In my office, us sec retary, I have two stenographer.-, two type writers and twenty-five other clerks. We have four thous and assemblies to deal with, which keeps my office pretty busy.” PROSPECTS. Two members of the citizens committee were rtenanri seem very much impressed with Mr. Turner as a fair and just man. They meet the mill presidents at ten to day with a proposition from Mr.Turner. The prospects ot adjustment seems better. AROUND THE MILLS. Things have had a much more livelier look than'any day since the lockout. The operatives aic disc iss- ing the prrspects of a settlement They seem perfectly satisfied as to the result, and are willing to stride by the decision ol their leader, what ever it may be. The citizens commit-ee are busily engaged in endeavoring to bring the strike to a close, it is to be hoped that a liberal spirit on both sides will prevail and an adjustment be affected.

This would require several hundred pounds ot nutritious lood a full crop ol bugs, worms, grubs and flics, that would be likely to find their way into a small fish pond in one season.

ABRAHAM Whipped la At llAlff,. .usnsti, for Freachinc a Bap. tilt' lemon. Something over a hundred years ago, the Ret. Abraham Marshall, a Baptist minister, pfeached in Au gusta, Ga. It was the first sermon- ever preached there by a Baptist minister.’ She good people ot the town were greatly enraged that the heresies Of- the Baptist -church should bu preached in their midst, add that their'childrew and servants should be exposed to the damning Baptist doctrines. For the heinqps offense, poor Abraham Marshall was tiecF up and publicly whipped in the Episcopal chinch yard. There has been a great change in the religious sentiment of-,Augusta since the day Marshall was scourg ed. Tne Baptist church-jp Augus ta is now nnfluential, * popular and welliustained. We havS seen !• stated, that there are 17 Baptist churches in the city with a member- ship of 9,000, but we suppose the statement as to. membership is a mistake, and that it really includes those more favorably inclined r sqrio »b>C9 who treatednim so unjust ly and so cruelly, were in all prob- ability sincere and conscientious. They thought they were discharg ing their duty to their fellow^maii and Creator. We rcadijAuip how natrow, prejudiced, ataggmumane they were. .We have jMcnty of men in our midst who are agnarrow and uncharitable for their day as the men who whipped Abrahxm Marshall. They condemn men and men of whicb-tbey know but little, if any- thing. The skate bitter, fiendish prejudice that placed stripes upon the bstkof Mr. Marshall still lives. Let tho narrow ^iggots and self- cdbatit&tM judges of mankind take heed that they are the merest atoms upon the glphe, thst they see the faintest glimmerings of the great truths of nature au revelation, and let them become llberaland charita b’e. - Tho Glunars Convontlon. The ginners of Franklin county rr.ct in convention on Saturday. Most of them were represented in person, or by proxy. The proceed ings were harmonious, and tile con vention adjourned to meet on the first Tuesday in September. Gin ners have sustained heavy losses by reason of i.on payments by custom ers, for bagging and ties. The ob ject of the convention is| to devise some method for the certain am unifirm collection ot these sma I amounts, which, if lost, nggiegatc a sum sufficiently large to take’ most of the profits of the ginners. ’ Wo think the plan most likely to' be adopted will he to requite cash for begging and tics when furnish ed. or to take pay out of the cotton. We apprehend.no objection (o this rule from customers. The man who e.xpects to pay at all, can't oh- ject to paying in cotton at the mar ket price—Carnesville Register. Trouble la th* Family.
