THE BROOKHAVEN HORROR.
THE l.'X I A It ; A II 1. K CRIME
'I'll Sickening Details.
From the Brookhaven Citizen. 221.
On last Saturday night at one o'clock
tne residence of Mrs. M. L. Burnlev. a
ujobi eiceueni ana accomplished widow
lady of this place, with an interesting
family of four daughters, ranging from
thirteen years of age to the eldest daugh
ter, ugeu aoout nineteen years, was en
tered by three Btol wart negro men, and
tne most hombleoutragea were committed.
Mrs. Burnley aud ner eldest daughter, a
most modest, renned and very intellectua
young lady, who graduated with the
highest honors of her, class, a year ago,
were sleeping together, when her daugh
ter, Miss Bertha, threw her arms around
her mother's neck, frantic with fear, and
cried out that some person was in the
room. The room being dark, the moth
er, at first impulse, thought her daughter
oniy frightened in her dreams, and put
ner nana out to quiet her. In a moment
two negro men sprang forward and
gripped the throats of the two ladies, and
at the same time the dreadful voice of
Anthony Grant, a well known desperate
burglar, who sometimes lurks in this
community, and who formerly lived here.
but for a long time evading the officers
for former crimes, spoke fourth, "do you
kuow what this is?" at the same time
putting the cheek and neck of Mrs
Burnley with the cold heavy barrel
of a pistol, and proceeded, "now, damn
you, keep quiet, or I will send you to
hell, where I have sent thousands of oth
At first Mrs. Burnley hoped that the
rascals might be satisfied with the theft
and robbery, and when they asked where
her morey was, she at once told them
where what she had iu the house could
be found, which, when secured by the
third negro, whose entire part of the plot
seemed to be to do the robbing, called
her a liar, and demanded to know where
the remainder of her money was. Mrs.
Burnley piteousley implored them that
she and her innocent family had never
done them any harm, and that they were
welcome to everything they wanted
in the house, and also the two horses
she had at the stable, but to pleaje
let her and her daughter, w ho still were
in their clutches, alone. But the hard
hearted wretches were unmoved from
their hellish purpose. Aud then ensued
a painful struggle of rapacious lust, and
horror, and innocence, too horrible to re
late. The mother with seli'-sacrificing devo
tion, which mothers alone can exhibit in
the grandest sublimit- under such perils,
nothing daunted at the pistol at her tem
ples in the hands of a villain, threw her
self by a desperate struggle as a protection,
across the form of her daughter. Vexed
at the effective opposition made by such
heroic efforts of Mrs. Burnley to save her
child, the fiends with a sudden wrench of
the arm, snatched the distracted mother
with great violence from the bed to the
floor, and choked her nearly seuseless,
Mrs. Burnley finding herself free for a
moment, and her daughter still in the
violent clutches of Anthony Grant, she
escaped through the window and raised
the alarm, which caused all three of the
uegroes to disappear in sudden haste.
While Anthony Grant and Silas Johnson j
were engaged in the attack of the ladies, !
Dick Cooper, the third negro, was entirely-
engaged in searching for money and valu
ables from the ground floor to the garret.
They took off the small amount of money
about the house, and a trunk ot valuables,
the trunk being found rifled the next
moraine about half a mile from the
Mrs. Burnley's residence being on the
edge of the town on the Meadville road,
where the locality is thinlv settled, the
nearest residence of any male person being
300 yards distant, and it was 15 or 20
minutes after the negroes had fled, before
any of the neighbors reached the scene of
action, and near daylight before a lully
organized force went in pursuit.
THE VILLAINS ARRESTED THROUGH THE
VIGILANCE AND ENERGY OT COLORED
Charles Caldwell (colored Senator) got
on the track of one of the out-laws (Silas
Johnson) at Clinton on the 18th. As
sisted by him together with young
Charles Caldwell, Eugene Welborn and
Wm. Turner, (all colored,) Constable
Ously, (white,) he was arrested and
lodged in jail in this city. Here with
this aid of Tazwell Jones (colored) the
same party got on the track of Anthony
Grant and Dick Cooper, and succeeded
in capturing them. The Sheriff of Lin
coln county, on being notified of the ar
rests, carried the desperadoes to Brook
haven Friday night.
RETRIBUTION THE VILLAINS HUNG.
Saturday evening at 4 o'clock, with
perfect deliberation, the citizens after
receiving the confessions of the despera
does swung them by the neck until they
were dead, dead, DEAD, as retribution
for their crimes and as a warning that
whatever else may happen, they intend
to protect their houses from invasion and
their loved ones from pollution.

COMMENTS BY THE VICK9BURGER.
The discussiou took a wide and liberal
range, and resulted in the adoption of a
resolution that it was inexpedient, just
now, for the bailiwick ot V icksburg to
issue an address to the people of the State
of Mississippi concerning the election of
1875, and this uction was certainly proper
and right. 1 he State election is off yon

months and then it would be rather im

tate the line of policy to be observed in
every county of the State. Let us go to

The military and religious order of
Knights lemplars was found in Jerusa
lem early in the twelfth century, by the
venerable Hugh de Pagauis and Geoffrey
de St. Omar. Baldwin II, king of Je
rusalem, gave them a habitation on the
south side of the church aud convent of
Solomon's temple, and the canons of the
temple added sufficient land on which
to erect offices. The first intent of the
order was to procure the remission of sins
by protecting the Holy Sepulchre, and
keeping secure from robbers . the roads
through which pilgrims passed to Jerusa
lem. Nine years after the establishment
of the order, it received a code of laws
from the council of Troyes, and was in
vested with a white habit by pope Hono
rious. Afterwards, in the time of pope
Eugenius, a red cross was sewed on the
mantles as a further badge of distinction.
The knights, who were at first but nine,
rapidly increased in numbers and in
wealth. Immense donations were made
them in all the provinces of Christendom,
and men of the highest rank were proud
to bear their title. According to the
original rule of the order, its members
were bound to live in perpetual chastity
and abstinence from luxury. After the
capture of Jerusalem by the Saracens,
the knights spread all over Europe and
in every country were under the control
of a governor, called the master of the
Temple. As they increased in power
and prosperity, they decreased in virtue,
until at last their arrogance, extravagance
and vice, rendered them universally ob
noxious. The order was finally sup

From a late letter from Talbot county, Ga.
to the Columbus Enquirer.
A remarkable instance occurred at
this church gathering seldom witnessed
by many. Mr. S. B. Baldwin, Sr., and
wife, aged respectively sixty-four and
hfty-six, were present with their decen-
dants. Thev have eight eons and four
daughters, who reside in four different
counties in this State. Tney with - their
descendants make an aggregate of thirty
six, all living. None of them either
drink, curse or use tobacco. All of them
are grown except three and something
more remarkable is, there has been but
one death in the family in thirty-one

The Care of Consumption.
A new remedy for consumption has
been found or at least the doctors
think so at this moment in the transfu
sion of the blood of animals. In France
transfusion has always been performed
from man to man, but while it has
been found easy for men to give up
their blood for money, while enjoying the
eclat of an experiment in a crowded am
phitheatre, among the applause of hun
dreds of students, good Samaritans are
rare in private life. A medical man
was unable to find any one ready to sell
his life's blood to a young lady until he
made a romantic appeal, and in the case
of an aged man it was quite impossible.
But Dr. O. Hesse, of St. Petersburg, says
that human blood is not absolutely neces
sary. He has performed the operation
of transfusion thirty-one times. In six
teen of his cases defibrinated blood was
employed a practice generally con
demned. In the remaining fifteen cases
the blood of sheep was used. There was
one death, in three other cases there was
no perceptible improvement, in the re
maining eleven cases there was a marked
improvement throughout, and in some
cases perfect cures. . Dr. Hesse hopes to
prove that he can cure pulmonary phthisis
in this way. Dr. Gedellices has tried
the transfusion of sheep's blood in two
cases. In one there was great improve
ment, and in the other a complete cure.

point nearest home, corner ot .Broad and
Marbury streets, Captain Butler rang
the bell, when the car stopped, and his
wife, himself and little girl rose up and
walked to the rear ot the car. On the
platform he encountered a mulatto by the
name of Mike Murrell, and his brother,

the shot was fired, Bohler sprang at Mike
Muller and siezed him just after he leaped
irom the platform and had thrown down
his pistol. He held him as in the grip of
a vice until two or three others came up
and laid hold on him. lhe other negro,
Gabriel Murrell, jumped off about the
game time and started to run across Broad
street. Policeman Finley gave chase,
and, drawing his revolver, fired at him.

put his hand in his pocket as if to draw a
weapon, but before he had time to take
it out, his breast was covered by the
cocked revolver of the policeman, and
the injunction that if he drew his last
minute had arrived. He surrendered,
was taken back to the car, and both rap
idly carried to jail and placed in one
the gathering storm.
The news of the foul, unprovoked and
utterly inexcusable murder flew from lip
to lip, from man to man, from street to
street, and a crv of vengeance was raised.
By ten o clock the sidewalks on Broad
street swarmed with armed men, who had
determined that the murderer had seen
the sun for the last time. At eleven
o'clock the signal was given to move upon
the jail, when the streets leading to it
I ' . . . O
were at once nnea. Arriving at tne
prison the keys were demanded and sur
rendered, the cell opened, and both the
negroes were led forth.
Taking them to the fair grounds, the
crowd halted, when court was opened for
testimony. Bohler, rinley and others
solemnly stated, and with as much mi
nuteness as if in the courtroom, what
they had seen. After this was over,
which required full two hours time, Mike
was led to the front of a long line of men.
The order was given by a little boy twelve
years old: "One, two, three fire ! " A
volley from the mouths of one hundred
pistols was poured into him. His body
was found there next morning and quietly
buried, by no one knows whom. It was
decided that as Gabriel had not fired the
pistol, and at most was only accessory to
the murder, he be taken back to jail and
put in the hands of the law. This was
agreed to, and he was remanded accord
ingly, and the crowd dispersed.
ON SUNDAY MORNING THE MILITIA
Augusta awoke Sunday morning only
to talk of the terrible scenes of the night
before. Many who had participated at
the fair grounds, and many who had not,
freely expressed the opinion that both
negroes ought to have been killed. Ap
prehending another outbreak, Governor
Smith was telegraphed to at Atlanta to
order out the military to guard the jail
and patrol the city that night. Where
upon he dispatched awent, when the
Richmond Hussars and one or two com
panies of infantry turned out, placed a
sentry guard at the jail and detachments
along the streets. But the night passed
off without the slightest disturbance of any
kind whatever. . -

THE CIVIL RIGHTS MILESTONE.
And this is but another milestone in the
career of the Radical party to force negro
equality and civil rights upon the South.
These poor negroes had been taught the
principles of that infernal bill that no man
had a right to even ask them to give way
to a lady on a street car, and that they
had a perfect right to murder Captain
Butler for doing so.
The Color Line
From the Central Star.
The Holly Springs South, edited by
Hon. J. W. C. Watson, one of the ablest
awyers and politicians of the State, in
its issue of the 30th ult., comes out in an
article upon the inexpediency of forming
party in this btate based on color.
Among Mississippi's great men, there is
not one that is truer to the South or his
State than Hon. J. W. C Watson, aud
his council is entitled to thoughtful
consideration. The following is an extract
from the article alluded to:
"In the second place it is not judicious,
because iu at least three of the Southern
States the negroes are in a constantly
increasing majority, and to organize
parties on the basis of color is to remit
those States to the indefinite control of
the African race, and unfortunately one
of these unhappy States is our own.
Nor is it judicious even in States and
counties where there is a white majority,
because if successful there, it must reoil
with frightful effect in less favored locali-
ggg Jt" t "t V
The common answer to our position is
that the negroes are already banded to
gether into a black man's party, and that
it is therefore necessary that the white
men should, in self-defense, form a simi
lar organization. While it is true that
the negroes, with inconsiderable excep
tions, have attached themselves to one
political party and obeys its behests and
votes its ticket with the regularity, and
with about the intelligence of a machine,
it is not true that they have tormed a
black man's party." On the contrary
though, in these Southern States they
practically furnish all the votes to their
party, yet in a very large majority ot
cases their favors and offices are bestowed
upon white men. We admit that the
solid unanimity with which the negroes
vote the Republican ticket regardless ot
the mental or moral qualifications of its
candidates, is well catcolat-d to hurry
white men into the opposite extreme,
but we are quite sure that the remedy
is not there to be found. It is enough
to make the most sanguine patriot des
pair of the Republic, when he sees the
controlling element in the State casting
its vote for strangers, imbeciles or thieves,
for the sole reason that such characters
represent the Republican party. W hat
the remedy is lor this state ol attairs we
confess ourselves at a loss to divine.
Time alone must bring the remedy, aud
if it i3 not brought speedily our State
seems doomed to destruction.
As grave as are the evils that afflict
the body politic we feel assured that they
will be aggravated rather than diminished
by the organization of parties "on the

The granges are making great headway
in Virginia,. and it gives us pleasure to
record the fact, for we deem it to be the
forerunner of prosperity to the farmers of
our state. We do not look upon this
move as in any way opposed to the great
interest of Virginia, but believe that to
our farmers, who are intelligent men, it
will prove a protection against monopoly
and extortion, and at the same time be of
great service in the interchange of ideas
and practical experience, thus doing
more in a year to advance the interests of
agriculture than could otherwise be ac
complished in ten.
As a social club, the grange presents
the very best possible form that can be
found, for there is the hallowed influence
of woman, and wherever woman is, her
benign influence tends to elevnte and ad
vance man's moral chaiacter; in other
societies, where women are excluded,
we may find pleasure, profit uud enjoy
ment, but here we find elevation for our
morals and manners, as well as protection
for our prosperity and the advancement
of husbands. We were doubtful at first
of the propriety of admitting ladies to the
granges, but after mature deliberation,
have concluded that as many of our
ladies are deeply interested in farming
pursuits in fact, we can jwiiut to instan
ces where ladies are excellent and most
successful farmers; in many branches
of the farm the hand of woman i- indis-
pensible ; then if the grange is to benefit
the farmer, why should woman be exclu
ded ? is the natural question that arises ;
if her husband, father, brother and
friend is to be benefitted by going into
the grange, why exclude her who is to le
much interested in all that concerns iheir
welfare ? Her quick wit can often solve
problems that men cannot so easily see
into ; hence her necessity in the grange,
and above all, her moral influence, sanc
tifies the grange, and makes it as sacred
as the hearthstone or the altar Virginia

the north end ot the county, where the
trouble had not spread, to aid in defend

Only twenty-three colored men re
sponded to the call, who subsequently
left before peace was restored.
Vithfcuuday evening came Col. Andy
Hudson, and Cupt rlynn, with two nun

this, Tate and Desoto counties, who im

ready to receive the advancing neirroes.

Monday brought more troops from the
hills, aud all around town were heard the
files aud drums of the enemy.
At 10 o'clock A. M., negro pickets were
discovered two miles east of town, and a
squad of twenty-five mounted men was
sent out to capture them which they did.
After the negro pickets had been
marched into the lines they attempted to
escape when oue of their n-iniber, Vess
Lightner, was instantly killed ; and Al
bert Hart, an inoffensive old darkey was
accidentally shot in the arm mid in the

Monday at 4 i m. messengers were

At 5 P. M. , the negroes attacked the
Court House in force, but were repulsed
at the first fire by the white men. Iu the
stampede the darkies threw away a great
many of their guns, which were after
wards picked up by our lys. In the
above fight no white men were wounded,
and only two negren, neither seriously.
Tuesday morning the negroes were dis
covered near O. Iv., and Captain Brown,
who had just arrived with fifty mounted
men, was ordered to advance and engage
them. He found one company at Worm
ley's lane, which fled to the swamps after
bring at tne column. oing lurther
down he found another company in C'aj
tain Hall's cotton field, which he charged,
capturing nine and wounding two negroes.
Later in the day some companies of
darkies were seen marching towards O.
K. and concentrating there. Scouts were
sent out, who brought back news that
nine hundred armed negroes were there,
and others still coining. For some reason
never satisfactorily explained to us, the
white men from the hills now refused
longer to defend a town that was almost
entirely deserted by its own inhabitants,
and prepared'to leave. At this juncture
Dr. 1E. Chapman propose. I to go to the
negroes with a flag nf truce, and if pos
sible get assurance of safety and protec
tion. He found the enemy drawn up in
line of battle two miles below town and
offered the following terms, which were
That the white troops should cvacu.ife
That the colored men should march
into the town, throw out juards, and
That the lives of all officers and civil

embarked for home, taking with them the

Thursday, 9 A. m., Col. Hudson re

formed that the negroes had violated their
promises and were pillaging the town.
Finding all quiet, they returned home
