The Washington correspondent of
tbe 2feiw York Herald is rcs-porjstble for
the statement that General Hurlbut,
oae of the representatives in congress
from Illinois well known to the people
of XJemphie, and who is a member ol
tbe Viekeborg investigating committee,
irawkly says that it is absurd to expect
endgrees to patrol the south, for it is
evident that there will be no end lo se
xtette troubles, and in his opinion the
sooner discontented States are remand
ed to a Territorial form of government,
and tbe Federal government relieved of
tbe aoooyarjors that are continually
aristae and increasing, the betterit will
be far Um people of the whole ciuntry.
He doe i not expect to get
auy testimony that will amount
to r.Byluing, and referred to what had
already tnwpired iu other southern in
vestigations. "It jls evident," ssys the
Jferald, "that tbe majority or the Re
poblksn members of the southern in

TICK VICrtSUUKG AFFAIU.
Vlw r Prominent Oiacr-Uoldera as
lo IhDOntraceby I tie 7tx torn Under
the Bcaandrel Croalty.
A correspondent of the New York
Timet, writlae from Jackson. Missis
sippi, in regard to the Vicksburg aflair,
Sinou my arrival in Jackson I have
seen several prominent officeholders.
and conversed with them in relation to
the troubles in Vicksburg. From their
statements I am more than ever con
vinced that the State government is un
able to reinstate the deposed officials,
even were it thought well to do so. The
governor has no, force upon which he can
call for protection except a body of negro
militia. Should arms be placed in their
hands, a terrible war of races would cer
tainly te the result, and would.of course,
end in the slaughter of the negroes.
Governor Ames know this, and, from
what I can bear, he will make no at
tempt to restore Crosby, or punish
the white men of Vicksburg. He
is powerless to maintain tbe dignity
of his petition, and his authority is open
ly defied. His colored constituents elect
ed him to oflice, butlhey are too weak
to enforce nts legal commands. Having
conversation with Judge Brown, who
considered it prudent to leave Vicks-
Durg, ami wnoso court was interrupted,
by tho ijonfllct there, I obtained much
valuable information. The judgeyis a
strong Republican and an honest raw.
ae h&'i always been Known as a true
friend to tbn negro, and I have great
confidence in what he; says. Touch
ing tbo recent disturbances, he
states that, while he severely con
demns tbe use of firearms aud vio-;
lencs to accomplish what could just as:
well have been accomplished by an ap
peal to the courts, he does not deny that
the citizens had strong ground for com
plaint. That Crosby's bond was lnsutu-
cient, lie states there can be no doubt,
and ho believes that the citizens were
rieht in looking into the matter. Their
grievances were great, aud they had
suffered long and patiently. He de
nounces many of the negroes who hold
office la Warren county as incompetent
and corrupt. Touching this matter, he
poke substantially as folio vf: "The
negro voters of Warren county have in
many instances elected rascals to oflice.
As an honest Republican aud a fair-
tninueu man 1 must admit unit. The
property-owners have suffered many
wrongii at uie nanus or uicse men, out
their remedy was through the courts."
In tho opinion of Judge Brown. Crosby
was greatly to blame.. Tbe ulllleulty
could havo been peaceably set
tled, and the sheriff retained bis
office, had lie given a new bond aud not
Issued the card calling upon the country
negnMs to como to his aid. It was wrong,
almost criminal for him to do that; it
was urjust for him to denounce the white
people of the city as "ruffianii, barbar-
ans, sea political banditti." 11 he baa
one particle of common sense he might
have kuown that the citizens would re
sent ench language. Governor Ames
had Leen. charged with advising, and
directing Crosby to appeal to negroes
for aid, and to order them to support
Him with arms, juage .Drown is puni
tive that the covernor gave no soch
advice. On the contrary, he assures me
that ilr. Amos was opposed irom tne
first, to violent measures, and that he
counciled peace and moderation. To
my question, "What do you think of
tbe action of the citizens in pre
ventive the neeroes from entering the
city ?" bo replied: "They could not havo
done less: it wouJU'iiave neeu wrong tor
them to do.less; they were right in re
sisting their entrance into the city.
Their action in demanding the sheriff's
resignation as they did was unlawful
and rebellious, tbe killing of flying ne
groes was cruel and inhuman, but the
safety of their women and children de
manded that they should keep the ne
groes out or vicKsourg. me DiacEs
might not have harmed the white men,
but there was no assurance that women
would have been safe from a mob of
half-drunken negroes." In addition to
Judge Brown, I have spoken with many
other fair-minded Republicans upon this
subject. They all join in tbe statement
that it would have been at least unwise
to allow the negroes to enter Vicksburg.

" and WnraeirHploTee Canon'FIred
The Beast " Hung Like
From the Chickasaw (Miss.) Messen
ger, of the tenth instant, we copy the
following particulars of a terrible crime
and its expiation:
It becomes our painful duty to record
one of the most fiendish ou traces, per
petrated by a demon on the persons of
two young ladies, u&ugnieru ot Mrs.
Miller, a widow lady residing near our
town, on Thursday last. The facts, as
we have had them detailed to us, are as
follows: On Wednesday evening, the
day before the horrible deed was enact
ed, Miss Bettie Miller, aged about eigh
teen, and her sister Georgia, aged about
sixteen, went on foot irom tneir motn
er's house to the residence of Mr. Hugh
11 CKiUt a uioiauto ui awuu imca luiico,
through the flat woods, where they re
mained that night. The fiend, whose
name is Bill or will Montgomery, lived
on the Welch place, and being aware of
the fact that tne young laaits were at
Welch's house and would return home
sometime on Thursday, early Thursday
morning left the premises aud waylaid
them on the lonely road which he knew
they would pass on their return home.
The Misses Miller started home about
half-past eight o'clock in the morning,
and wben tbey had proceeded about
half way, being at least a mile and a
half from any habitation, they weresud
denly confronted by the villain armed
witii a neavy uicsory ciuo.
His hellish purpose was doubtless
readily underetooa oy me young isaics,
and resistance being offered by them,
he assailed the elder one with his club,
breaking the young lady's jaw-bone,
knocking out several of her teeth, and
bruising and mangling her face, hands
ana boay in a most snocEing manner.
Thfl Henri then seized tha. aDDsrentlv
lifeless form of the wounded girl, with one
hand, and eras Dine her sister, who was
almost as helpless from fright, with the
other, dragged tnem about naii-a-miie
from the road, through the woods, where
he detained them several hours. Just
before leaving them, the devil incarnate
took out of his pocket a large knife, and
announced that it was his purpose to
cut tneir throats. Miss tieorgie, who
was not so seriously injured as her sis
ter, fell upon her knees before him end
be&ousbt him to spare their lives, prom
ising that they would not inform against
him. It teems that at that moment the
thought occurred to the nesro, who is
very tall, stout anC ' Jack, that if he
could have them describe as their
ravisber a person as dissimilar from
himself as possible, be might avoid
suspicion, he therefore agreed that if
tbey woum botn nnia up tneir nanus anu
swear, that when interrogated, they
would state tney receivea tneir injuries
from a low, chunkey, mulatto negro, he
would permit them to depart. They

With much difficulty the young ladles
succeeded in reaching their mother's
home, where the elder now lies in a very
critical condition. For several days aud

and white had been scouring the coun

human crimo ever perpetrated in our
Tbe particulars ot his capture are as
follows: On last Monday night he made
bis appearance upon the plantation of
Mr. John Brownlee, and was kindly re
ceived and cared for by Henry Brown
lee, Clifford Brownlee, Willis Brownlee,
and Henry Crawford, all negroes. As
soon as these negroes had given him
something to eat and placed him care
fully la his "little bed," they went off
at full speed ana reportea to is. J. Wind
ham, J. M. Brownlee, B. D. Pulllam,
and W. S. Pate, who were in the neigh
borhood looking for William. The
above-named gentlemen repaired in hot
haste to the place designated by the ne
groes, and, ere Bill was aware of their
presence, he was made the'r prisoner.
Tbey Immediately chained and hand
cuffed him, and then sent word to the
scouts that their faithful search had been
rewarded by tho capture of their prey.
The news spread upon every breeze,
until tbo whole country, far and wide,
arrived upon the scene. Early the next
morning, Tuesday, the negro was placed
In a wagon, and, guarded by two or
three hundred citizens, driven toward
Houston. As tho news spread, hundreds
of negroes and boys fell into line, with
their double-baneled guns, and assisted
in guarding bim into town. When tbe
immense guard and its followers reached
the corporation, thf7 were met by hun
dreds of women and children, shouting
REJOICINGS AND DEATH.
When the wagon containing the pris
on 3r reached the public square, the can
non pealed forth in tones of tbnnder,
the awful doom tnat awaited tne poor
wretch. Tbe wagon was driven around
the public-square two or three times,
timid the firiug of cannon, music of the
tauti", ana deafening shouts of a
thousand men, women and children.
Such excitement was never before wit
nessed in our community. When the
wagon was hauled in front of the court
house, the sheriff came forward and de
manded possession of tbe prisoner. At
that moment a hundred pistols were un
bolstered, and a thousand cries of "No!
no! no!" rent tbe air. The exasperated
populace, with no intent of doing vio

Judge Flte was born and reared lnDe
ICalb county, and is now fifty-six years
of age. He received his education at
Clinton college, in Smith county, under
the able tuition of Dr. Frank Gordon
and Judge James B. Moores. His father,
Jacob Fite, was a successful merchant
and farmer of DeKalb county. Gradu
ating with distinction. Judce Fits spent
several years as teacher at Enin col
lege, tinmuer county, as a tutor ne
was distinguished for his learnlig, per
severance and kindly disposition. Alter
having studied law, he soon raised him
self to a prominent position In the pro
fession. He removed to earth age, en
tered Into a law partnership with tbe
late Governor W. B. Campbell, and
continued to practice with hlin until
1847, when Governor Campbtll was
elected circuit judge. In, 1819
Judge .Fite was elected State
senator from Sumner and Smith
counties, and In 1852 served as
Presidential elector on tbe Scott ticket.
On the death of Judge John L. Gocdall,
in 1853, he was appointed circuit judge
by the governor. At the election which
followed he was retained on thii bench
by a large majority, and held the posi
tion until the breaking out of j he war.
In the enrineof 1869. on the elevation
of Judge Andrew M'Lean to the iiupreme
bench, Judge Fite was appouiteu oy
Governor Senter to fill tbe vacancy.
Soon after an election was ordecred, and
he was again re-elected by a handsome
majority. After the adoption of the new
constitution another election wis held,
and in 1676 he was re-elected for the
third time. As he was chaieu far a term
of eight years, he would have had thiee
years yet to serve. He has filleci the po
sition to tbe entire satisfaction of tbe
bar and the people. In the lategubei
natcrial canvass Judge Fite was a prom
inent candidate for governor before the
Democratic convention. He in as suc
cessful in farming as he has been at the
bar, and during ihe war gave his per
sonal attention to the tillage of the soil.
He svniDathized stronclv with the
south, and In 1SS3 was imprisoned
by General Payne for adherence
to her cause. He now resides on
his farm on the Cumberland river,
three and a half miles below Carthage.
For a great many years, Judg8 Fite has
been an exemplary onember of the
Methodist church: Is married, and has
an interesting family. He belcngs to a
lamuy or long standing in tne aisiricr,
being one of seven brothers, all of
whom have stood hich in .their re
spective vocations as merchants, farm
ers or lawyers. Since the death of
Judge Ab. Caruthers, who spent most of
his lira in that district, anu wtio was
conceded by the bar of the Sta1 during
his life to be the best common-law law
yer and judge in Tennessee, or perhaps
in tbe country, Judge Fite has been re
garded by tbe Same people as his
worthy successor in learning and ability
and in uprightness and modesty. He
commands ths universal confidence and
respect of the people of the district, and
will make an able and faithlul repre
sentative in the next congress.
