Tiic .Republicans of the State KcAdy for a
wry Strouj: Fi^ht.
[Leiier i>) l!w Sew'x ami four it r.]
Augusta, August 11.?The Republicans
in Georgia, through their cxecu
uvecoinmitte, have made an emphatic
declaration of war. But they* have
done this several times' before, and the
result has been only to make their
defeat the more pronounced and overwhelming
by bringing out the full
force of the Democracy. It is significant
of the drift of opinion among the
leaders of the tattoed party that the
entire electoral ticket in this State is to
be composed of white men. The
dusky file arc welcome as voters, but
none need apply for position among
the officers. This is evidently an at.tempt
to capture the so-called Independent
element for Blaine, but the
erratic gentry who have hovered between
the two parties under this unquestionable
guise will be fewer this
campaign than for many years past.
There are no local dissensions to give
them ai; excuse for bolting the Democratic
ticket. Harmonv prevails in
every part of the State. In the Atlanta
district the only place where there
was any probability of trouble, everything
has been settled by the frank and
manly withdrawal of Capt. Harry
JacKson, leaving tlie field open for
Hon. 2?. J. Hammond, the present experienced
and able representative in
Congress. The Republican who rnns
against him will have more cheek than
the average lightning rod agent, and
about as much chance of snccess as thft
Ben Butler electoral ticket will in
. In this' the new tenth district the
Hon. Geo. T. Barnes received the unanimous
nomination, and the man, be
he Republican or Independent, who
takes the field against him, will have
even a harder time than Judge Twiggs
did two years age wheu he ran against
Horn Seaborn Reese, the regular Democratic
nominee. Judge Twiggs is an
able man, a fine speaker, brimming
over with energy and perseverance,
popular with the people, and yet lie
found so little encouragement that he
deemed it expedient to withdraw in
ihe*middle of the campaign. A man
of less magnetism would have about
as much cHarice as a whirlwind. And
yet. the Republicans have determined*
to put forward candidates for Congress
in every district in Georgia. As they
have very little timber of their own
for thai purpose, it is presumed that
they intend to make victims of aspiring
Indepependents wherever they
can; and "there are, perhaps, enough
of those gentlemen ready and willing
to take two bites at "the political
cherry. In the first place, there is the
delusive bite .on election day, and in
the second, the more substantial bite
before Congress if the Republicans
should happen to get possession of that
body. And herein is the secret of the
determination to make a fight in Geor"
gia. There is not a man in the Republican
party who is so bereft of his
senses as to believe that any candidate
of that ilk can have any hope of success
in a single Congressional dis^ct in
this State. Bat in 4ftCjconliiigeHcy i

v MASSACRE OF -MORMONS.
Ihe Merciless Manner in Which a Party of
Missionaries were Slain in Kentn. Icy.
NaShviele, Tenn., Augnst 1G.?A
dispatch from Centerville confirms the
mni'dftr r?f tho \lnrmnne in
county by masked men last Sunday ;
morning. The. raiding" party nam- '
bered aboutforty. 'Thirteen attacked :
the house of Martin Condor, -where a i
Mormon meeting was in progress, i
| Forcing the door, they were encoun- :
tered by: Condor armed with a gun.
In an effort to disarm him one of the
raiders was struck with the gun, uu- .
masking him, but he drew a pistol and 1
shot Condor in the- bowels. Condor ;
was shot again by one of the party i
with buckshot and instantly killed.
At (he sametime another of the attack- I
ing party fired upon a Mormon elder '
named Gibbs, who was partly hidden <
j behind the wife of Condor," killing <
Gibbs and severely wounding Mrs.
Condor in the thigh. The party fired i
again upon a Mormon elder named
Berry, who was hiding behind a bed, :
killing him instantly. Another Mor- !
mon eider in the house, who ran out
bv the back door, was pursued bv the
attacking party stationed outside. They
fired on "him as he ran, bat it is not '
known whether or not he was killed, i
After killing Berry, the masked men '
started out of the house, and just as '
they got out, J. R. Hudson- fired and ]
killed Dave Hinpon, one of the masked i
men. One of the Hinson party stood 1
over the body and fired two loads of !
buckshot at Hudson, literally riddling
; him. The Mormons, in fear of an!
other attack, did not make a search <
until Monday, when they found the i
Mormon who ran away from Condor's ]
dead. It is rumored that the other i
missing elder has been found dead, i
The Mormon eiders claim they have i
been sent here direct from Ufcab to i
I make converts and establish churches, i
A UOKIilELE STORY.
The Ore**ly Survivors Charged with CannihalJsm---The
.Story Utterly DiKicdilt'l in
Washington, August 12.-The minor
which was afloat here last week that
the records of the Navy Department
showed that the rescued members of
Lieutenant Greely's party had partially
sustained life upon the flesh of their
dead comrades was at the time emphatically
denied by Rear Admiral
Nichols, Acting Secretary of the Navy.
A circumstantial account of this alleir
ed cannibalism, published in the New
York Times this morning', was shown
to Admiral Nichols to-day, and his
comment was that there are no records
at the Navy Department which would
give a shadow of foundation for such
a story. He added that he did not
believe there was any truth in it.
Secretary Chandler has been absent
from the city for several weeks, but
has, of course, been constantly in communication
with the department, and
a great many important official documents
have been sent to him, so that
Admiral Nichols's statement that there
are no documents bearing upon the
matter at the department is not necessarily
conclusive as to their non-existence.
The story is, however, wholly
discredited at the Navy Department,
while at the same time army and navy
officers concede the possibility that the
facts may be as stated.
Commodore Walker, Chief of the
.Bureau or navigation, was 01 tne aecided
opinion ?hat the whole story
was made out of the whole cloth. The
dispatch of Commander Schley that it
was imperative to place the bodies in
metallic caskets he explained as follows
: Commander Schley was anxious
to bring the bodies bacK in as good a
state of preservation as possible. They
were kept in alcohol until they reached
St. Johns. Such a method of transportation
was only proper as long as
necessary. In these tanks of alcohol
the bodies would be knocked about by
the motion of the vessels at sea and
would be damaged. Hence it was
necessary to place them in metallic
caskets at the earliest opportunity.
"Besides that," he said, "that bodies
which, were frozen when found would,
yon know, decompose rapidly as soon
as they reached a warmer climate, and
it wa&advisable to care for them before
decomposition should take place."
Henry Shot for Stealing: Provisions.
Boston, August 13.?A special dispatch
from Portsmouth, N. H., says:
Early this morning Col. Kent obtained
an interview with Lieut. G reel v. who
admits that Private Heury bad been
executed ou the 6th of June. As early
as March it was suspected that Henrywas
stealing the limited food wbich
was apportioned out to the survivors
for their sustenance, and this fact
being finally and positively ascertained
Lieut. Grcelv ?had thereafter hard
work to protect the man's life. It became
necessary, in order to keep, up
the discipline to inform Henry that he
would be shot if the practice continued,
and that a similar fate would be
meted out to any other member of the
party who should be detected in a like
ciime.. If Henry had been permitted
to coutinue his stealings uumolested
the balance of the party would have
surely been starved to death and Henry
alone' survived. After and in spite of
these warnings Heury was again detected
stealing provisions, among the
food taken being two ponnds of bacon,
the eating of so much of which made
him sifik. A search wa? then insHfnt
ed when it was found that Heury had,
among other, things stolen and secreted
a pair of sealskin boots, which had belonged
to the hunter of the party. Lieut.
Greely was therefore forced " in order
to maintain military discipline, and to
protect the lives of his other comrades
to issue a written order that Henry be
shot, which order was carried into
effect on June 6th.
As to the alleged cannibalism, Lieut.
Greely says that if there was anything
of the kind it jnust have been an individual
act-atfd not general. Nothing
of the kind, however, came under
Lieut. Greclv's personal observation.
Sergeant Brainard, who is in the
hospital at the navy yard, confirms
Lieut. Greely's statements. More than
a week ago Lieut. Greely forwarded
to the Secretary of War a detailed report
Upon proper representations to Secretary
Lincoln a conrt of inquiry will
undoubtedly be ordered.
More of the Alleged Cannibalism.
The statement that the Greely partyfed
on (he flesh of their dead comrades
has elicited widespread comment. A.t
first it was geuerallv disbelieved, but
is now thought to he quite true. In
the case of Henry, it seems he was
not shot to be eaten, but after he was
A i.~/l X* ? a] ..MA .1 mm i.~ J
eiecuieu wr meit, us aueuuy suuuuj
the flesh was cut from his dead body.
It is also clear that the flesh of Lieutenant
Kilsingbury was eaten by some
of the party. Of the bodies of the
dead, five have not been found, and it
is suspected* by many that these were
likewise eaten?whether the men were
killed for the purpose, being-, of course
unknown. Lieutenant Greely expresses
entire ignorance of anything
like cannibalism, and says it must have
happened, if at all, when he was ill, or
so much dazed by the perils surrounding
him, that he was ignorant of what
took place. The entire matter will
undergo official investigation, and iH
this way the whole truth will be
brought to light.
CLEVELAND WILL STICK.
A. Denial of the Ridiculous Story of his Intended
New York, August 14.--Senator
Gorman, of Maryland, the Chairman
of the Democratic Executive Committee;
General B. B. Smallev, of Vermont,
Senator Jones, of Louisiana, and
H. G. Thompson, of this city, had a
lengthy, conference at the headquarters,
No. 11 West twenty-fourth street,
this afternoon. A reporter of the Express
interviewed all four concerning
the rumor that Gov. Cleveland, recognizing
that he cannot be elected by
any possibility now that Butler is in
the field, contemplates withdrawing
from the ticket.
"The story is simply ridiculous" remarked
Senator Gormrn, "so ridiculous
that I do not care to talk of it.
Mr. Cleveland's chance is too full of
promise to warrant auv such nonsensical
Senator Jones said: "Governor
Cleveland's withdrawal at this time
t r i i x.~ v- ; i
wuuiu ue equivalent to uio resigning
of the Presidency, which any careful
observer knows is within his grasp."
Commissioner Thompson said: "Life
is too short to notice any such rumors."
General Smalley simply indulged in
in amused smile when his opinion was

THE BAMBERG POSTOFFICE.
Postmaster BoMuon'i Statemtnt^-Tbe
Report of the Inspector?Fred Nix at the
Bottom of the "Outrage."
Washington, August 16.?Postmaster
Robinson, colored, of Bamberg,
S. C., has sent to the postoffice department
a statement, giving the reasons
why he recently; closed his office and:
left town. He says on Sunday night,
August 10, a body'of ten or tweive men
went to his home, abont three and a
half miles from Bamberg, and- shot
through bis doors and windows. Kobinson
began crying "murder" when he
was told that, if be did not cease, he
should die instantly. Continuing his
report, he says: f'One of them said,
if I would resign the office at Bambergwithin-thirty
-aaysand sign a petition
in favor of Mrs. Yarn, the widow of
the late postmaster, 1 would have that
chance. If not, I would be killed at
once. I was well near frightened to
death, and accepted the proposition.
They finally concluded, thai I shoald
not return to the office, and if I dared
to come they would kin me without a
donbt. I felt.very certain if I went to
my office on that'dav I worilcLbe kill*
Postoffice-Inspeotor Simpson, who
investigated the trouble* says: "The
moving cause of the whole trouble is
that another party, desires the "office,
andhis friends.took tSis course to get
the present incumbent; onL I do not
think it has any political significance
whatever. I learned from.Postmaster
Robinson that trouble had existed for
some time between him and Fred Nix,
another colored postmaster at Blackville,
ST C., on account of the chairmanship
of the. Republican county
commiuce, oolq 01 mem Deing aspirants
for the position. I also fonnd
that Postmaster Nix was particularly
friendly to the brother of the late deceased
postmaster at Bamberge, and
that he desired his appointment to the
place now occupied by Robinson, all
of which has something to do with the
attack on Robinson."
Simpson farther says, that a major- ]
ity of the people seem to desire Robinson
to remain as postmasterT and the
inspector recommends that no change
be made at present. On the recommendation
of the postoffice Inspector,
Robinson concluded to appoint a
white man as his assistant, and named
J. P. Murphy, a merchant of that
BUTLER 12? THE BAY STATE.
Talk About His Object and the Size of HI*
Boston, August 16.?The general
impression here that the Bntler Presidential
candidacy is principally direct
ed to helping the. iilaine ana Logan
ticket is receiving confirmation by
many significant facts. Butler has
about hrm a few personal friends who
will do his work and figure as Butler
men. He has other clo?e friends,
however, who are coming out openly
for Blaiue aud declaring that they do
not care to throw their votes awav on
a third candidate. A few Bo tier Democrats
have also been brought into the
Blaine camp on the high protective
issue, but they are more-'noisy than
numerous. Nearly all these people
could be held for Butler if he cared to
hold them. A politician who consulted
some Butler workers to-day
abont a Blaine and Logan Club was
told that his club was right and he
chould .go . ahead with it,' but that
I Cleveland men should either be brought
| into the club or turned over to Butler,
i Major McDavitt, one of Butler's oldtime
organizers; says that the natural
tendency of the Butler campaign will
be to help Blaine, but that its real pur
pose is to give tne wursmg pcupie a
rallying point for tire formation of a
new party., ^' intelligent estimate
can yet-be; formed-of the1 size of the
J&ftler vote in this State. Nearly
every Democrat of even local prominence
ba&cOmmiftedlrimseTf to Cleveland*
yet-it is feared by-some who take
the gloomiest view of the sitoaticm
that the mas6'0f th'S voters may brealc
away from their leaders and plnmp
40,000. or 60,000 vote? for Butler. The
Democratic- ?fiief^::persist in their
, declaration that- Bntler will be surprised
at the smallneis* of his vote,
and that it wiH not exceed 15,000. If.
I this is Butlers vote it will "be drawn

* CLEVEEAXD VINDICATED.
Action of Independent Republicans on the
The report of the committee of Independent
Republicans of Buffalo relative
to the published scandal on Governor
i Cleveland, has been furnished to the
press. We cull from the ^papw the
following pertinent extracts:
The general charges of drunkenness
and gross immorality which are made
against Governor Cleveland are absolutely
false, His-reputation for mor
alitv has always been gdfcd. There is
no foundation for any statement to the
contrary. He was sought out and
! nominated for the mayoralty against
j ills will, and was supported for that
position by the larger portion ot the
j educated, "intelligent and moral citizens
of Buffalo without regard to
politics, and on purely personal
grounds- After he had gone through
this contest he was again put forward
as one of the most distinguished citij
zens of Buffalo as a- candidate for the
' Governorship, and again received the
support of the same class of his feJlowcitizens.
In this, -community, where
he had lived tor twenty-nine years, and
where his life was knowii' and his
character well understood, this support
would not have teen giyck bm.haa he
been either & drunkard or libertine.
We are able to speak from . personal
| knowledge &i his acquaintances of long I
Istandings his general!
private life has been that of a quiet,
orderly, seif-rcspectiiur, and always
highly respected citizen. * * The
charge that he has recently taken part
in a drunken and licentious debauch in
Buffalo on the occasion of such a visit
is entirely laise. - - >> c nave ueeu
particularly careful and thorough in
our investigations of the alleged betrayal,
abduction, and inhuman treatment
of a woman of this city, as detailed
in a local newspaper. The circumstances
out of which this story
was fabricated occurred eight years
ago. The woman in qaestion was at
that time a widow, between thirty and
forty years of age, with two children,
the younger of whom was ten years
old. The facts of the case show that
mi/-? f Ho f flip
OUU IIVU UIIU wstw I?*v
allegations respecting her" abduction
and ill-treatment are wholly false. We
dcein these the only features of the
charge in connection with this matter
which constitute a public question requiring
any declaration on our part.
Our examination o? the other charges
which have been made against Governor
Cleveland's private character
shows that they are wholly untrue. In
every instance'in which the reports
and insinuations have been tangible
euough to furnish a clue to guide us in
our investigation they have been positively
proved to be false.
OLD POI>*r COMPORT.
Its Historic Interest-Its Beauties and Popularity
as a Pleasure Kesort.
Old Point Comfort, Va.? Aug. 11.
?This spot around whicli cluster so
many historic recollections is situated
about fifteen miles above Norfolk,,,
Where the waters of the James and
the Elizabeth rivers meet to flow into
Chesapeake Bay, .forming1 what is
familiarly known as Hampton Koads.
It was here that McClellan landed his
immense army in the spring of 1SG2,
with which he was to speedily reduce
Richmond, the capitol of Hie Confederacy,
and thus terminate the war between
the States. A few hundred
yards from this place occurred the celebrated
naval duel between the Confederate
iron-clad Virginia and the
United States ram Monitor. Here
also the Confederate peace commissioners,
of which the late Alexander
Stephens was chairman, met by ap
pointment President Lincoln and Secretary:
Seward?a conference which
which only raised false hopes in the
breasts of "a "despairing people. And,
here also was imprisoned President
Davis?the casemate in which he was
confined being easily found by visitors.
Fortress Monroe, said to be the largest
fort in the world, is just one hundred
yards from the hotel, and affords a fine
promenade at all hours?the principal
feature of the day being the dress
parades, which take place at seven
o'clock, daily. There is an artillery
school here for the benefit of the lieutenants,
who graduate from West
Point. After serving awhile in the
army they are ordered here for a two
years' course lit artillery practice.
The firing takes place from two to six
o'clock every afternoon at targets
placed at from two to three miles distance
in the water, as a spectator can
watch the shot or shell from the time
it leaves the "cannon's mouth until it
reaches its destination. The shooting
is quite interesting. The fort was
never in the hands of the Confederate
forces. Had Virginia seceded sooner
it would have been ours without any
trouble. A party of men had everything
in readiness to seize the fortress,
having an understanding with the
officers in command, who at the time
were mostly Southern men, who had
agreed to deliver up the fort upon demand;
and this important position,
the key to "Washington, would have
passed into our hands without the
t shedding of a drop of blood, but GovI
arnor Letcher, of this State, refused
his sanction, aud the scheme fell
I have just spent a morning at Hampton,
a picturesque town about two
miles from this place. The principal
objects of interest found here are the
celebrated school for Indians and
negroes. The buildings are fine speci

pupils. This being vacation I did not j
have au opportunity of visiting the
class-room6, but the work-shops, printing
office, etc., presented quite an active
app<mrance?the work all being done
by -Jndiaii and negro boys and girls.
iThie Indians appear quite subdued,
and one n-ould scarcely recognize them
as being the descendants of the noble
red man of the forest, who scorned
labor. After leaving the school
grounds, I entered the gates of the
National Cemetery. This is a beautiful
spot and kept in perfect. order.
The long rows of marble slabs, with
only the name of him who is laid to
rest beneath4 and the State from which
lie came, is all that is left to tell of
those who were once the invaders of
our soil.'' Afler looking for some time
my eyes grew weary and was about to
retrace, my steps'to more pleasant
scenes when ' I noticed in "the most
obscure portion of the cemetary slabs
that from a distance looked larger than
those bv which I was surrounded.
Through curiosity I stroljed in that
direction, and upon reaching the rear
or part farthest from the entrance

close examination, proved to be wood
instead of mar We. Although a'great
many of the names were nearly obliterated-,
still they bore the names of
those who wore the grey?those who
laid down their lives-to defend their
country's honor. I fonnd that the
Sixth South Carolina was represented
hero by ? Teaguc, of Company I,
who is "buried in this plot. In a few
more years these wooden slabs will
decay and nothing will be left to give
the names of those who lie buried afar
from kindred and from home
Leaving this spot filled with sad
reflections, I next went to the Soldiers'

that can contribute to then* comfort
and amusement. While here the bugle
sounded for cHtiiter, and as these old
soldiers filed into the dining hall, I
took my stand near the door to witnesi
the procession. And what a procession?the
halt, the maincd, the blind,
the lame were represented here in
every possible way. And the long
grey- beards that cover most of their
faces reminds us that the war has been
