Again we are called on to chronicle
one of those diabolical murders that

feeling or insecurity m tlie breast oi tne
most peaceable and unotlendirJg man.
On Wednesday night la9t, Mr. Matt.
MeOll, living at the Draper place,
about two miles from town, was at
tracted by the furious barking of bia
watchdog, and on going to bis door to
see what was the matter, he was shot
by a person concealed in the corner of his
yard fence, with a double-barrel gun, two
shots being fired. The gun was loaded
with buckshot, three taking effect,
me in each breast, penetrating the
lungs, and one in the lefL groin. Mr.
MeGali lingered in great agony until the
jiext day, when he died. He says that
the person who did the shooting was a
negro man by the name of Miles Col
Jine, m he could see him distinctly by
the-ligbt of theTuo-Hj, which was very
1 .right at the time. At the same time
ne saw two other negroes run oil'. It
appears that a difficulty occurred a few
days previous to the murder, between
tolling, two other negroes and the de-
.eased. The negroes had lewd white
women on their nlace. and annoved de-
ed by their riotous conduct, aud he
threatened to have them removed. A
day or-two afterward, when the negroes
were absent, meir Home caugnt hre, and
ileeeaseu went uown to try and save

while ne was mere tue negroes

angry words arose between them, but no
serious remilU were anticipated from it
by the deceased. The supposition i that
oue or two oi the negroes attracted the
Attention of the dog, while the other ne-
vro concealed lilmseir to do theshootinir.
AleCall iuhis testimony positively slated
that Collins did the shooting, as he could

A colored citizen, giving his name as
Berry Wilkes,, on being questioned by a
Jftrald reporter, gave the following re
cital of a thrilling adventure in. the Lit
tle Deer creek country: I was riding
along through the thick eanabrafee Just
beyond Mr. Hill's place, on Little Deer
orvek, when I saw a man on the tide of
the if ad, who appeared to have sud
denly emerged from the canebrake.
As I rod a PP to him he accosted mt
civilly, and requested mo to give him a
chew of tobacco. As lie took a chew
from the piece I handed' him,. he give a
shrill whistle, and, in mponse, anotlif
inanMhnerged from the thicket near by,
and soon after others followed, ona by
one, the whibtle menuwhile being re
peated, until there were Miae half a
dozen burly, stalwart men confronting
nie, of whom, as nearly a i eaunemefs

One of these, an IrMiiueu, itii0&ise,

hold of my leg, 'as if he meant to drag
me from my horse, saying, "You'll
have to . tell a different story
from thai; you ride too flue a
horse not to have'anv money." I soon
realized that I was beset by robbers, aud

heard lum say, "I'm a dead man, ' asj
he ran to the edge of the canebrake audi

Carthy is wounded," and afler that I re
member nothing more until I found my
self lying in the middle of the road
with a deep gash cut in my head, my
elothes all gone except my nether gar
ments, and my tickets robbed of one
hundred aud eighty-two dollars, and all
Uiat they contained. Before I
was knocked senseless 1 saw
them throw the man whom I had
shot into the saddle and drive my hoi-ie
off through the cauebrake, and that
was the last seen of them. The horse
they Mole from me is a peculiar looking
animal, with large brown and while
spots, carries a high head, aud when
pacing, bona in his right foot. The de

rout the Chattanooga .(Term.) Commercial.
Last night about seven o'clock, :i man
the name of Ben Thomas, au em
ploye of the Roane iron company, was
shut while passing up James street, near
Msjor Carile's, in the direction of his
home. The circumstance attending the
shooting seem to be rather mysterious.
Thomas was said to have been under the
inlluence of liquor at tlie time, but has
the reputation of being peaceable and
quiet. 'No one seems to know who did
the shooting but Thomas himself, and
he declines to tt41 for the present. The
tiufortunate man was carried home by
some friends,and Dra. Wight and Burns
called to dress the wound. On exami
nation they fountlthat the shot had tak
en effect iu the left leg, between the
knee and ankle, breaking the bone, and
indicting an ugly liesn wound.
KLEPTOMANIAC A NARROW BSCAPE.
roni the Jucksou iMigs.. Pilot.
Some time since a gentleman from
icksburg was confined iu the lunatic
asylum at this, place. Ho was not en-J
tirely sane, but considered harmless in
every way but one he was a klepto
maniac. While uuder Dr. Compton's
care ne was so correct in nis deportment
aud gave the superintendent of the asy
lum so little trouble that he was fre
quently . seut into the city on light
errands, and always attended to his
business and returned promptly. One
day, however, whue in the city, he fell
in witn uau company, tooK to dnnEing,
remained absent several days, and
was severely reprimanded when he
made his re-appearance at the asylum.
Tina on ended mm, andsuoruy thereaf
ter he disappeared entirely. Biceutly,
fciipenutenueut uomptou received a let
ter iroin tue runaways brother in
Vicksburg, stating that the iu-ane man
had been seen at that place, and re
questing that, should he return to the
asylum, he be kept there. The other
day he walked iuto Dr. Compton's of
fice, at the institution, ragged and
dirty, and stated that be had been in
New Orleans driving a horse-car, and at
other places. Dr. Comptou was of course
desirous of securing his erratic, patient,
and kindly suggested that heshould go up
stairs, wash himself, eat his diuuer, aud
he would then feel much better. But the
eccentric gentleman shook hK head
aud said that they "would not get
n:m in mat establishment again." Dr.
Comptou then told him sternly that he
would have to stay. At this the maniao
became nervous, began searching in his
pocKets, anu nnaiiy plunged his hand
suddenly intoabreast-pocket.drewa five-
shooter aud prepared to shoot. This was
getting unpleasant. Dr. Compton sprang
quickly upon him, wrested the pistol fiom
his hand, and before he had time to
cock it, or fire, took the weapon from
him, and thus narrowly escaped danger.
The maniac was ihen secured, aud now
remains where he properly belongs, un
til cured of his mental disease. The
genial superintendent will be careful
how he trusts that man hereafter, and
undoubtedly feels an unpleasant sensa
tion creeping up his cplnal column when
he tiiinks of what might have happened

One of the results of liadical iguorance
is two seta of officers iu the Stata of Mis
sissippi. A legislature composed of men
of sense would never have fallen into the
error of leaving it doubtful whether there
should or should not have been an elec
tion last November. There wa3 no ex
cuse but ignorauc for such a mistake.
The constitution provides for holding
elections biennially. This Is a firnple,
plain' .fact. It was easy for the legisla
ture toliave enacted laws to secure this
result. As it i, the people have to suf
fer for the ignorance of a set ot legislators
who have about as much ability to make
laws for a great commonwealth as they
have to calculate the time of the next
eclipse of the su.i. It seems, now.
that a question that could have been
settled in an hour's time by any
man"5bf sense, is to cause this State
endless trouble and confusion. The
.Radicals are directly responsible for this
state of thing?. They made the consti
tution; they control the legislature; and
they have thrown this State into this
unpardonable imbroglio. We under
stand that in this county we have two
sets of officers sworn in, and we presume
it is the case all over the State. How
long it, will last, no one can say. After
a deci-ion of the supreme court on the
question, it is to be hoped we will at
least know which master we have to
serve. But. even then, it is by
means certain that this will be acquiesc
ed in by the defeated party. The peo
ple, we suppose, can do nothiug but
wait and see which side shall have the
right to take from them something, in
return for worse than notmug.

Governor Powers has notified the
members of the old legislature to meet

uary ensuing the time pres-cribed by

From the Canton Mad.
The people will mark the just from
thenniust, but do not want the political
ship swamped merely lor tne saue c
gratifying one or two old salts wh
have lost their reckoning. If Governor
Powers has the interests of the State so
much at heart as he professes, let him

certainly was. Let him refuse

would not prav that congress might in

the conservative people of Mississippi
believe that Powers was for them, sim
ply because he is opposed to Ames?
Surely not, for "by his acts shall ye
judge him." The whole gist of tho
matter is, ne is ror rowers, and, witn
his "lone Jack," Morris, proposes to

From'the Corinth News.
It is confidently hoped and with
good reason believed, that Governor
Powers will make no strenuous
opposition to the newly elected of
ficers taking tueir seats, whatever
may have been the sentiments of the
intelligent portion of the people a few
months ago, now the almost unanimous
voice is, obedience to the laws and. the
constitution. The tax-payers are indif-
lerent as to wnetuer .rowers' or Ames'
friends hold the reins of government
but they wish for no obstruction- to be
placed in the way of the proper execu
tion of the laws. They are weary
this ceaseless turmoil and strife; they
have become disgusted with greedy pol-
Ulciana contending for place, merely to
advance their own selfish schenlcs, re
gardless of the interests oi tne people.
Governor Powers, if left alone, is not a
bad man, but he has permitted himself
to be intiuenced auu controlled by
shrewd men, who have used htm as a
cat's paw to pull the chestnuts out of the

Governor Powers, being now all that
there is left in tne conspiracy lately
formed Iu the State for defeating and
defrauding the people, is receiving the
attentions of all the newspapers oi Mis
sissippi. In fact, he is the worst abused
man in the community. 'ine curses
which Senator Alcorn set loose are re-
turningto Powers "to roost," and anion
them corner Alcorn in f.rooria tcrxomr.
It certainly is rather too bad that the
mere tool, tne stolid instrument, suouiu

since, during the efforts of other
journals to fasten all of the onus
of the railroad subsidy matter to ms
skirts, and we were honestly of the

against tnan sinning, out m tuis latter
phase of his administration we desire no

consequence inevitably to occur, aud
