A rt. Ar, Feb. 16.-The report of the finance
committee, to whom was referred the resolution
instructing an investigation of the charges made S
against Gov. Bullock by the State treasurer, was
Syeterday presented to the Hoase, and without ml
being rsad wus ordered printed. "Jie report 1
opens as follows: "We do not say that Gov. Bul- T
lock is guilty of anything criminal, or of bad
faith, but on the contrary believe his intentions 8
were pure and that what he did was in good faith, d
he believing at the time that it was for the bestlin- c
terest and welfare of the State. Yet we think he
acted without authority of law; hence we propose fa
to examine his acts and try them by the same teat I
that the highest and the lowest cisoen is tried-' P
law and evidence." The report then cites saveral L
cases, showloing that former governors of Georgia c
have hre sfrequently exercised the same power as that
exercised by Gov. Bullock, and goes on to say :
"For the purpose of getting clear and fuller de. 4
velopments of the facts growing out of the draw- o
isg and use ofthe $35,000, your sab committee ad
dressed to Gov. Ballock a few interrogatories, ad C
also inolosed to the treasurer the governor's com- 8
mnication to the committee, and founded thereon
a few interrogatories to him. They reusponded Im- 1
mediately to the inquiries of the eommittee, and
the governor gave a much more atisrfactory ao
t coout of the affir tua we had before received. a
We larned that the Meses. Klimllt had been ad. s
vanced $31,000, for the purpoe of lightiug, hest
Ing and fournhng the capital, and with it a eop~y
of voochers, and that the balance. t000, In
cash, and cash items authorlsed by law to be on
Scelled by warrnts whenever the treasurer i
placed in proper relation to the department. The I
treasurer's reply gave no other information i
about the matter, but contained an intimation
a that $17,000 dollarns charged to the State in the
mousy olumn had been improperly used by the
gnvrnor. Ths spiion we fnd on examination,
rftly groundles We do not intend to be

Atlanta shall be held responsible. Bat we reoom- Bi
mend, to prevent similar occurrences bereaf- be
ter, that the judiciary committee be instructed
to prepare a bill to define more clearly io
the duties of the governor sad treasurer, and to cc
give the treasurer exalusive power of negotiating
State bonds by and with the consent of the gov
ernor. We apprehend that the treasurer, when a
warrant is properly drawn by the governor and
approved and entered by the controller general,
has no right to go behind the wrrat to look tato
Its legality; the warrant, if withia the saoant
appropriated, is his security. Tbb contingent
food is placed in the governor's hands, to be used ar
as he thinks proper, sad the treasurer has no
right to question his use or application of that a
The committee was eomposed of twenty-seven gI
members, four Bepbiteans, two conservatives p1
and twenty Democrats, and a very thorouwh and pi
impartial investigation seems to have been made. I

On Thursday evening of last week a tornado
parsed over the section of country lying between L
Douglars and Linn Flat, in Naoogdochee county, G
and extending into the southern part of this s
county, sweeping everything in its course. Bev- N
eral buildings were blown down, and several per- 0
sons wounded-one or two severely. No one was
hilled as far as we have heard.-[Henderson S
Times, 3d. H
We have inquiries every week whether white
men can stand the climate Sooth. Crtanly they
can. They are not more likely to be meik th*3a
others, sad can come at say season of thq year.
There will never be so favorable an opportunits t
to secure homes in the South a at present. Land.s l
are advancing in price aer hbould the coontem. a
plated railroads moee land will soon be as high r
as in the NIrthwestern State. The climate and
prodtucions of the South will soon cause it to teem
w1: an immense population. One white man in
this neighborhood, with his two little boys, has m
this season raised an abndanooe of corn, wheat, t
rye, potatoes, eto., for home supply. In addition
to ive bales of cotton, which he ehas jut sold for b
$450 in gold.-[Ibid.
Our exhanges from Northern Texas report the
prospect of the wheat orop as highly promising
in that region. S
The McKinney Enquirer gives an account of the a
murder and robbery of a stranger in the southern
portion of Grayson county, a few miles north of
Mantna. The murdered man poaed through t
McKlnney a few weeks since, having iL charge B
one four-male and two two.horse wagons, loaded
with apples. He returned to that place, riding a
dark iron-gray borse, and leading another, a light
gray, having sold his wagons, teams, etc. e al
came alone and remained in town for two or three t(
hours, exchanging gold for currency. At the b
drug store of Foote and Herndon, he bought $600 E
in currency, and as it was being counted and A
received by him, several parties were present- 7
and it is generally believed that the lends who a
murdered him were tempted to follow on his
track by the sight of the money. Bis body was
found, with seven bullets in it, at the place first
indicated, his money and papers Sone. The
people turned out en samse to hunt the marderers,
and inquiry made as to the whereabouts of every
citires and sojourner on the fatal day. The result b
is that two young men, named William Black- o
more, formerly of Carroll county, Mo., and John
Thompson,formerly of Barry county, Mo., were ar
rested. They were In the drug store at the time the tI
Stranger received his money; they left town with T
h m, and Col. Wilmeth asked him to go on and 1i
stay over night with them. Next morning they o
left home early, and did;not return until abhout 8 h
o'clock that night, and were during the day een
in the neighborhood of the murder. Th P tnd
other facts, fixed slptleon upon them, a they t
were promptly arrested and lodd In jail. The r
muorer, want a supiue w • nae nsa with him c
between $2500 and $3500 in gold and currency. o
He remarked in the drug store that he lived in
North Misouri. He was 6 feet 2 inches high; o
raw boned,not fleshy, but heavy; hair jet black, o
rather curly, some few gray; whiskers light on V
chin, and monutacher nose slightly Roman ; eyes, o
gray-blue: between 30 or 35 years of age ; had on
black cloth overoost; sack dress coat, cloth;
dark pants : shirt bosom plated icross-ways; five
double-lined calf boots, with copper head taps, t
three screws in each tap; black plush hat, half b
worn: black vest, with pearl buttons; neck-tie
