TUESDAY, DEC. 22, 1885.
A BUND CHORUS.
For scvcial days past there has
been a lcmaikablc family of ne
groes in Atlanta. Their name it
Williamson and they camo fiom
Wilson county, North Carolina.
There arc three brothers ami four
bisters, all of whom have been to
tally bliiul from their birth. They
arc the children of black parents
who were slaves and ordinary field
hands. Unto them were born four
teen children, seven of whom had
sight while seven were blind. The
blind children were not only hardier
and healthier, but their mental en
dowments are superior to those of
their brothers and bisters who could
sec. They went to Kaleigh to the
state blind asylum and were there
well educated. Every one of them
developed a remaikable talent for
music, and on leaving the asylum
organized themselves into a concert
company and began to travel through
the south. The oldest brother mar
ried a smait negro woman, who act
as guide and business manager of
the party. They have been all over
the south, giving entertainments,
which have paid them handsomely.
They sing and play on various in
struments with lcmaikablc skill.
All of them have good voices, which
have been well trained.
Their most remaikable perform
ances are their exhibitions of their
powers of mimicry. They imitate a
brass band so perfectly that a per
son outside the hall in which they
arc humming would almost invari
nhlvhe deceived. Their imitation
of the organ is equally perfect.
Each of the singers makes a pecu
liar noise and carries his or her own
part of the performance, and the
combined result is a deep music,
very like to the pealing of a grand
organ. These arc two of their
many tricks. They are constantly
adding to their rcpcrtoiic and per
fecting themselves moie and more
in their curious aits. They have
educated the sense of touch to a
very remarkable degree. By feeling
of a person's face and head, they
can give an accurate description of
his or her appearance ; and one of
the sisters claims that she can tell
the color of the hair by touching it.
The seven will join hands and
any object can be placed in the
hands of the oldest brother at the
end of tlio line ; while he holds it
he claims that the magnetic current
which passes through the entire line
will enable any one of his brotheis
and sisters to tell what he has in his
hand. At any rate, some remark
able Buesses of this kind are made.
The blind negroes have given a
series of entertainments in various
negro churches in the city and have
created a great sensation among the
colored population. It is said that
they take good care of their aged
parents, who still reside on the old
homestead in North Carolina, in the
same cabin where they lived as
slaves, and where their fourteen
children were born. The blind
singers have bought the place and
presented it to their parents. The
brothers and the wife of the eldest
manago the financial affairs of the
combination so successful!' that
they have accumulated a snug pro
perty. The oldest brother is about
twenty-eight and the youngest sister
about sixteen years old. Various
efforts have been made by profes
sional managers to secure the con
trol of this remarkable family, but
they prefer to take care of their
own affairs. They are all intelli
gent and remarkably well posted on
matters in general. Atlanta paper.
The British campaign against
Thebaw has been short and success
ful. The Burmese despot has yield
ed on the approach of the invader,
and his capital is now in the possess
ion of General Prendergast. Lord
Duffcrin telegraphs to London that
he has arranged to administer the
Burmese government in Queen Vic
toria's name. Thebaw' s swift and
abject submission will doubtless
keep his head on his shoulders, but
it is not nt all probable that ho will
ever be permitted to reign again.
Somo creature of the English will b
given his throne, under such restric
tions that ho will be a mere puppet.
England has bagged a big piizc, and
it is not her habit to relinquish any
thing that she lias won. The change
from Thcbaw's despotism to Ihilish
nilo will be of advantage to the
people of the conquered country,
and the interests of eivilUalion will
