Life's brightest sunbeams there.
Brothers and sisters turn to bless

A .mother's heart is near,

To note each starting tear- ?

And pray that thy young heart
Maj long be spared the bitter who
From cherished friends to part.

To offer at thy shrine ;
And Friendship many a blooming wreath
Around tby path entwine :
But tb? tears that o'er tby restless CuUch
From a mother's eyes were shed,
Will moist a green spot in thy heart
When tho*? bright flowers are dead !
Then watch those loving eyes, maiden,
That beam upon thee now;
And cherish every silver bair
Thai stealeth o'er that brow ;
For a mother's love's the purest ray,
The brightest day-star given,
To light us o'er Life's darkened way,
Aad lead us up to Heaven.

IIIS LETTER TO ARTEMTS WARD.
Mr. Artemus Ward, Showman-Sur : The
reesun I write to yon in pertikler, are bekaus
you are about the only man I know in all
u God's country" so-called: For sum several
weeks I hav been wami a tu say sum thin.
For sum several years we rebs, so-called, but
now late of said county deceased, hav been
tryin raity hard to do sumthin. We didn't
quite do it, and now its very painful, I assure.
you, to dry up all of a sudden and make out
like we wasn't thar.
My friend, I want to say sumthin. I sup
pose there is no law again thinkin, but think
in dont help me. It dont let down my ?her
mometcr. I must explode myself generally
so as to feel batter. You see i'm trying to
harmonize. I'm tryin to soften down my
feelina. I'm endeavoriu to subjugate myself
to the level ol' surroundin circumstances,
so-called. But I can't.tio it until I am allowed
to say sumthin, I want to quarrel with sum
body and then make friends. Iaint no giant
killer ; I aint no Norwegian bar. ? aint no
boar-constrikter, but I'll be hornswaggled if
the talkin and thc writin and the slauderin 1
has got to be allalone on one side any longer. .'
.Some of your folks ha re got to dry up or
turn our folks loose. It'd a blamed -outrage, 1
so called. Aint your editors got nut hin else *
rio do but to peck at us, and squib at us, and 1
crow over us ? Is every man what kan write :
. a paragraf ta consider us as bars in a cage,
- and be always a jobbin at ns to hear us growl ? i
Now yoi see, my friend, that's what's dishar
monious, and do you jest tell em, one and all.
e pl uibus unum, so called, that if they drut
atop it at once or turn us loose to say what
we please, why wo rebs, bO-calkd, have unani
mously and jointly and severally resolved to
-to-to--think very hard of it-if not
Thats the way to talk it. I aint a gwine
to commit myself. I know when to put on
the brakers. I aint agwine to say ell I think
like Mr. Etheridge, or Mr. Adderiy, no called.
Nary time. No, snr. But I'll jest tell you
Artemus, and you may tell it to. your show :
If we aint allowed to express our sentiments,
we can take it ont in kalin ; and hatin runs
heavy in my family, shure. I hated a mau so
hard once that all the hair cum ont of my head,
and the man drowned himself in a h og-wal
ler that night. I koald do it agin, but you
see I'm tryin to harmonize,' to acquiesce, to
bekum calm and screen.

it aint enuif lo make your head swim. .
But Pm a good Uuion man-so-called. I
ain't agwine to fite no more. I shan't vote
for the next war^ I ain't no gurrilla. I've

friend, we are the poorest people on the face
of the earth-but we are poor and proud.
We made a bully fight, Selah i and the whole
American nation ought to feel proud of it.
It shows what Amerikins eau do when they
think they ?re imposed on-"so called."
Didn't, our four fathers fite, bleed and die
about a little tax. on tea, when not ono in a
thousand drank it 1 Bekaus they sukseeded
wasent it glory ? But if they h aden 11 sup
pose it would hav? been treason, and they
would have been bo win and scrapiu round
rung George for pardoo. So it-goes, Arte
mus, and to my miad, if the whole thing was
! stewed down it would make about half a pint
! of humbug. "We had good men, great men,
Christian men, who thought we was right,
and many of 'cm hare gone to the ucdiskov
ered country, and have got ? pardon as is a
pardon. Wheo I die, I'm mity wiitin to risk
myself under tho shadow of their wings,
whether the climate be hot or cold. So
mote it be. Selah !
Well, maybe I've said ennfl But I don't
fell easy yit. I'm a good Union man, sertin
and shure. I've had my breeches died blue,
and I've bot a blue bucket, and I very often
feel blue, and about twice in a while, I go to
the doggery and git blue, and then I look up
at the blue serulean heavens and sing the
melancholy choryas of the Blue tailed Fly.
I'm doing my durndest to harmonize, and
think I could succeed if it wasent for sum
things. When I sec a blackguard going rouud
the streets with a gun on his shoulder, why
right ?hen, for a few mini ts, I hate the whole
Yanky nation. Jerusalem, how my blood
biles. The institution what was handed down
to us by the heavenly kingdom of Massachu
setts now put over us with powder ahd"ball 1
Harmonize the devil! Ain't we human bc
ihgs ? Ain't we got eyes and ears and feelin
and t'ainkin ? Why the wholo of Afriky has
come to town, women and children, and ba
bies s.r.d baboons and all. A man caa tell
how fur it is to the city by the smell better
than die milo post. They won't work for us,
and tliey wont work for themselves, and they'll
perish to death this winter as shore as the
devil is a hog, so-called. They are now baskin
in thij summer's sun, livin on roas tin ears and
freedom, with nary idee that the winter will
cum agin, or that caster oil and salts costs
money. Some ef 'em a hundred years cid,
are vrhinin around about goin to kawlidge.
The truth is, my friend, sumbody's badly
fooled about this bizness. Sumbody has
draw ed the elefant in this lottery, and don't
knovr what to do with him. He's jest thrown
his snout about loose, and by-audby he'll
hurt sumbody. These niggers will have to
go bick to the plantations and work. I ain't
igotn to support nary ono of 'em, and when
you hear anybody say so, you tell 'em " ita a
lie," so called. I golly, 1 ain't got nuthin to ,
jupport myself on, We fout ourselves out of |
everything except children and land, and I ,
iuppose the land are to be turned over to the
negroes for graveyards.
Well, my friend, I don't want much. I ain't
ambitious as I used to was. You all have got
jrour shows and monkeys and sirkusses and
brass bands sr?d organs, and ?au play on thc
potrolyum and the harp of a thomc-nd strings
and so on, but I've only got one favoi to ax
of you. I want enuf powder to kill a bur
yaller stump-tail dog that prowls rouuds my
premises at night. Pon honor, I wont' shoot
anything blue or black or mullattei. Will
you send it? Arc you and yonr foaks so
skeered of me and my foaks, that you won't
let us have any amynishun ? Are the squids
and crows and black raccoons to eat up our
poor little corn patches ? Are the wild tur
keys to gobble all round us with impunity ?
If a mad-dog takes the kiderfuby, is the
whola community to run. itself to death to
get out of the way? I golly ! it looks like
vour pepul had tuk the rebelfoby for good,
and was never gwine to git ^>ver it. See
here, my friend, you must send me a little
powder and a ticket to your show, and mo
and you will harmonize, sertin.

welfare appeared to be always uppermost ;
his mind. Separation from them was a sour?
ut constant pain. To bid them farewell wi
the greatest trial to his fortitude.
Yesterday morning, from eight o'clock ni

sat by his side? with her arms around hi
neck, spending vvith him the last hours o
earth. But, as we saw him thus, he appeare
calmer than most men would have boeu whe;
partiug lrom home to go on a distant journey
Beyond an unnatural flush on his face, and i
trifling droop of the eyes, he looked as w<
used to see him in the court room in the dav
of bis trial.
On reaching the penitentiary early yester
day morning, we fouud detachments fron
the loth- United States Colored Infantry 01
duty before ihe entrauce, under command o
Col. Ennis, with Capt. Levi Patchin as ofli
cer of the day, aud Lieutenant W. Evans ai
officer of the guard. A large crowd of mei
and boy6 were on the ground, seeking entra?e*
without passes. Colored sentries were pa
cing the walls which surround the yard when
the execution, was to take place.
Entering the gate we found the hearse,
containing a stained poplar coffin, ordered
by the Government from Mr. Cornelius, tc
receive the remains of Champ Furguson. He
had desired for himself a coffin made cf cher
ry, and doubtless his wishes would have been
complied with in so small a matter, but the
other had been til.ed before his wishes were
known. Tuc burial case waa not pretending,
hut gotten up iu much better style than that
usually awarded to criminals. It was removed
from the hturse at twenty minutes past ten
u'clock, and conveyed to the inner yard,
wliere it was deposited in front of the gallows,
and the lid removed
The gallows was a rude structure, which
had been previously used, and was the same
as ever, exce?. the introduction of a new cross
beam. It was erected on Thursday, and is
the common upright gallows, with a platform
about eight foet square, containing a drop
some four feet square. Up a frontage of six
steps the condemned man was to mount to
his doora. The rope for IMO on the occasion
was a four-strand Manilla hemp, the strength
of which had buen previously tested with a
two hundred pound weight. At twenty five
tniuutes to eleven o'clock, the rope was ad
justed to the ring suspended from the center
of the cross beam, allowing a fall of some
At twenty minutes past eleven o'clock the
prisoner appeared under guard, and mounted
the gallo w i, with elbows and hands pinioned,
and accompanied by Captain Dykeman, Post
Provost Marshal, Col. Shailer, Commandant
of the Post, and bis spiritual adviser, Rev. Mr.
Bunting, of the First Presbyterian Church.
He walked without assistance, apparently
without fear, with erect body and steady
walk. He-did not seem to shrink back at
sight of the scaffold or the coffin, which he
passed with outward composure and ascended
the steps fronting the gallows, to the platform,,
where* he took his position upon the drop, ol:
his own accord.
Furguson is a powerfully framed man, sb:
feet one and a quarter inches high,and weigh
ing about ono hundred and sixty pounds.
His muscular organization is finally developed
and rounded off like a prize fighter's. His
physical build, with a large full chest, indica*
ted great strength and endurance of body,
with very unusual energy of character. He
carried himself quite erect, and be was
dressed with scrupulous neatness, in black
cloth frock coat, with vest and pants of the
same material, and black gloves and new
gaiters. This neatness ef the prisoner has
always been one of bis peculiarities, and was
a noticeable feature of his character during
Cul. Shafter then proceeded to read to the
prisoner the charges and specifications upon
which he was tried! and the sentence of the
court as approved by Gen. Stoneman. This
occupied about twenty-three minutes. Du
ring the reading Furguson seemed quite im
patient, as if he thought the proceeding en
tirely unnecessary. He looked among the
spectators, nodding, recognition to a man in
his shirt sleeves, who was surveying the scene
from a seat on the top ot the penitentiary,
i He also nodded composedly to others in the
i crowd. Aa he grew impatient at the reading,
he several times turned on bis toes and heels,
changed his position, held his head up towards
> the sky, aud theu fixed his eyes on the plat
- form. Once in a while he nodded or shook
his head at the conclusion of the reading of
a specification. When the caw of Etan Hud
1 dleston was mentioned, fae said in a firm
voice : " I can tell it befter than that." When
Col. Shatter read as follcjws : " to all which
the accused pleads not guilty," he replied,
" But ? don't now."
At the conclusion of the reading of the
sentence, Col. Shifter remarked to the priso
ner: "In accordance with this sentence, I
am now going to have you executed." * Fur
guson bowed his head, and rejoined : "Very
well." Rev. Mr. Bunting then made an ap
propriate prayer, at the conclusion of which
Furguson bowed profoundly towards the
minister, as if interning to thank him, utter
ing some inaudible words.
He was then asked if he had anything to
say before proceeding with the execution. He
replied: "Nothing to say particularly at all.
No, don't think I have." The noose was here
placed around his neck, and thea, for the first
time, he displayed signs of emotion. His face
flushed to a deep scarlet, the perspiration
broke forth profusely from his face, and his
lips closed with a convulsive quiver. The re
alization of his awful situation seemed to
have flashed over his mind in all its fullness,
iverpowering his fortitude. Colonel Shatter
?riped the sweat away, and the prisoner grad
lally recovered his equanimity. He expressed
limself much opposed to having anything
ilaced over his eyes when a handkerchief
?vas called for. Then he volunteered the state
neut: "I don't know some tbiogs io those 1
?pecifications, but I don't deny anything I
tver done." For a moment or two he seemed 1
o be repressing an impulse to make fuller !
omarks. After a brief pause he added, "I
vant to be sent to my family ; I don't want
0 be buried on this soil'." After another
lause, he continued, in an excited tone:
1 Don't give me to the doctors ; I don't want 1
0 be cu t up here.-' Colonel Shafter answered : :
[ You shan't, Mr. Furguson." A short si?. '
ence followed, when the prisoner again, :
poke: "I want to be "put in that thing," 1
jointing to his coffin, " and taken to White 1
ounty, where I can have my family around
ae. If I had only ha<rniy way, I wouldn't 1
lave been here. Whenever you are ready, I ;
>.m done. My last request is to be sent away
vila my wife." 1
The white cap was then drawn over his
ace. His last words were : u 0 Lord 1 have
aercy on me, I pray thee!"
As he uttered the last word, at seventeen
aiuutes to twelve o'clock, detective Banville, '
X one blow of a hatchet, severed the rope ,
rhich sustained the drop, and the body fell J
ome two feet with a heavy thub. He died
asy, there being no death struggle, as is often
be case. Twice, he' slightly shrugged his .
boulders, and soon the desperate guerrilla,
rhoso crimes, and cruelties had made his J
ame a terror," hung?r w|?pan, and the guilty .
pirit was ushered into that eternity at whose
brcshold thc wicked shrink back aghast, j
Vhetuer he entered that new lifearepen
ant man is a question between his God alone

icea, let us forget the JWT.W^B he uas perpe

The neck was uot broken Ly the fall, but (
he rope had completely imbedded itself in
tie front part of thc neck, the knot having '
lipped to the rear. Considerable extravasa
ion of blood occurred from the nostrils, as ex
tibited o i the cap which covered the head.

MESSRS. EDITORS: I have been receiving
letters from medical students in the interior
of this State and Mississippi inquiring wheth
er the Medical College of* Mobile would be
opened this winter. I beg leave to say,
through your columns, that it will not open.
In explanation, I may state that this insti
tution was taken charge of by the Freedmen's
Bureau, and appropriated to the purpose of a j
negro sc?ool, after the town wa-? taken pos
Ree on cf by the United States troops.
Moreover, a great number of the most beau-1
titul and costly models, auatomical prepara- !
tions, ?fcc., have been taken cifi by those now ?
in possession, and the chemical department,
which was unequalled in any school in our
country, is occupied by a negro cobbler.
It is hoped that tim explanation will be
perfectly satisfactory to those ? who feel any
interest in a scientific institution which has
cost the Sk\te more* than ?100,000, and
which, in completeness, is not surpassed by
any one of the kind on the continent.
J. C. NOTT, M. D. . j
This Freedmen's Bureau, apart from its i
character as. a speculating, money making j
concern, is not only an imposition upon the
country, but a curae to the couutry. Its op
erations are making it painfully familiar to
the people, and the day that witnesses ita dis
solution will be a day of general rejoicing.
The President knows well that it waa a grand
Yankee scheme to further the designs of abo
lition speculators in Southern lands, houses,
libraries, pianos, jewelry, B?ver-spoons, &c,
and we have no doubt that it will ere long
receive its quietus.-Metripolitan* Record.

Wendell Phillips down on President
Wendell Phillips delivered a lecture before
the Boston people on the 17th inst.
The lecture attracted a large and enthusi
astic audience. Ita title was " The South
Victorious." Mr. Phillips declared that.
President Johnson, in his speech to the dele
gation that waited upon him from South Ca
rolina, and who appealed to him for protec
tion against Congress and the harsh spirit of
.the Northern States, had ranged himsolf with*
the halt converted rebels and made himself
three-quarters of a rebel in order that the
rebels themselves might be one quarter Union.
Major General Banks Mr. Phillipa denounced
as' a vagrant mountebank, laden with the
eurses of every loyal man in Louisiana and
Massachusetts, and yet Massachusetts men '
were going to send him to Congress. Mr.
Phillips, in speaking of the endorsement of
President Johnson by various republican
State conventions, said:-"The republican
party does not exist. There is a spectre
walking over the country in its shroud, but
there is no such party. " It has not existed
since the Baltimore Convention, when it was
buried in the will of Abraham Lincoln, I
deny the existence of any political force en
titled the republican party."
Gov. Brownlow, while walking the streets
of Nashville la.ely, was unceremoniously
pushed into the gutter by a couple of negro
soldiers. This act would seennto have effected
a decided reformation in tho Governor's po

" As one desiring the welfare of the colored
people, they will permit me to say they can't
drive the Legislature of Tennessee imo con

can, by the demonstration they are making
in this direction, deprive themselves of any
such privileges, so far, as Tennessee is con

A CHAPLAIN BROUGHT TO jcnmcx^-Tbe
New Orleans True Delta of Frida/ says :
Our citizens will learn with unalloyed sat
isfaction that through the ester tiona of Gov
ernor W?lls the now notorious Chaplain Osl
aban has be?n brought tb justice. JTh? of
fence, or rather outrage, committed : by this
individual, was his unwarrantable interfer
ence with a civil officer in the discharge 'bf
duties, the circumstances of which, briefly
stated, are as follows : A negro was,arrested
in Bossier parish for horse steading, received a
fair and impartial trial, and waa convicted of .
the crime by a jury. . Simply because the
prisoner was a negro, Chaplain Calaban, Vf ho
is connected with the Freedmen's Boreen, put
the presiding Judge under arrest.
As soon ss the matter came to the know
ledge of Governor Wells, be made a demand
upon General Canby for the arrest and ?rial
pf Calahao, and backed his request with argu
ments so powerful as to induce ?n immedi
ate compliance on the part of the General. ?
special order had bean issued by the latter,
stating that Chaplain Thomas Calaban, 4Sth <
U. S. C. I., Assistant Superintendent of*
Freedmen, at Shreveport, Louisiana, is sus
pended from, the exercise bf his official func
tions until the charges made against him are 0
investigated. It is true that this does not i
accomplish that most desirable result, the
abolishing in toto of the Office of the 'Freed?
men's Bureau, but it will probably have the
effect, of teaching Superintendents in future
that their ipse dixit is not the law, and them
selves the sole power, in the unfortunate dis.
trict in which they may be located. Mr. Con
way, the head of the Bureau in Louisiana, is
ordered to appoint a substitute for Calaban."
The Medical College of Georgia.
A few days ago we referred briefly to the
re-opening of thia institution upon the first ~
Monday in November next.
We feel it, however, to be a duty as well
os pleasure, to allude to this valuable college
again, to remind our readers of the fact, that
for many years it has occupied a prominent
position among the scientific establishments
of the South, and that now, if ever, our peo
ple should show a proper appreciation of its
merits. The members of tho Faculty are all
men of distinguished attainments.
It is only necessary to mention the names
of Dr. Ford, Eve, and Dugas, to convince any
one acquainted with the subject, that a Fac
ulty thus supported, must be among the ablest
in the country.
It must not be lost sight of in this connec
tion, that the city of Augusta is most conve
niently located as regards the - ^rious coun
ties of the State, and that undoubtedly, it is
?me of the healthiest pinces in America.
We trust that the young men of Georgia
ind the adjoining States, who design making
medicine.their profession, will duly consider'
the claims of this institution '-.pon their pat
