New York Politics.
The Republican State Conven
tion of New York met last week at
Saratoga. Senator Conkling was
chosen temporary Chairman. He
made a long and labored speech,
his object being to prove that three
special dangers now threaten the
republic-State's Rights, Tnflation,
and a disposition to trample on the
liberties of the people. He said
that New York would decide the
contest of 1880. A. B. Cornell,
Conkling's candidate, was nomina.
ted for Governor.
Gem. Hood's Children.
The death of Gen. Hood and
wife left their eleven children al
most.destitute and helpless, the old
esthbeing only ten years of age.
The Atlanta Constitution began last
week the collection of a fund for
their benefit. The first day $1,000
was subscribed. The firm of In
man, Swan & Co., of New York.
forwarded $250 as its contribution.
Contributions will be received by
the Constitution from any quarter.
The money raised will be invested
by three trustees in securities for
the benefit of the children.
Praetiee what You Preach.
The Northern Methodists are
.confronted with a very troublesome
question. The colored people of
that section are nearly all mem
bers of the Methodist Church. A
new bishop is to be elected soon,
and the colored members insist
that their large membership enti
tles them to have the coming Bish
op from among their color. The
white Methodists, who, before the
war, were the rankest abolitionists,
and since the war the most blatant
advocates of the negroes, have now
an opportunity to practice what
they preach. Will they do it ?

Gen. Mosby, now Consul at Hong

love and esteem for Gen. Hood and
his family, I thought a few partic
ulars of the sad event would not be
uninteresting to you. Mrs. Hood,
after last confinement, was better,2
and had an easier time than on any
former occasion. Friday week, feel-]

a bath. Immediately after she was
taken with a chill. Dr. Richardson
having left on the 1st of this month,
Dr. Bemiss was called in. I heard
him say Mrs. Hood's case was the
most remarkable one he had everi
seen in his practice ; that there was I
not a single symptom of yellow fe- C

had it until the black vomit ap
peared. She died at half-past 9
o'clock, P. M., Sunday night, and
was buried at 10 o'clock, Monday
morning. 1 never in my life saw a
man so completely crushed as Gen.
Hood was. I was with him Mon

said he'd rather God should have e

Legend of Jalapa.
With almost every section is asso.
ciated strange and startling events ;
so intermingled with the superuatural
that one is disposed to belive they are
connected with the spirits of another
woild ; while we do not entertain
great faith in ghosts, yet all some
times think there is a kind of spirit
ualism existing, which whether we
believe or no, yet by strange presenta
tions attracts our attention as mar
vellous in the extreme.
A half century ago, when the slave
trade on the high seas was briskly
carried on, there was purchased by
two citizens of the lower section of
this County three Congo Africans.
They were all it appears from one por
tion of Africa, perhaps related. How
beit they were particularly attached to
each other, and whenever an opportu
nity presented sought each other's
company. In those days slave own
ers were charitably kind, particularly
the race of German settlers. The
owners of these simple, ignoront, un
christianed negroes noticed their warm
attachments, and though living apart,
allowed them to cultivate this feeling
without resorting to forcible measures
to break it up ; nevertheless, occasion
ally it interfered with their duties.
In this life we are the creatures of
circumstances; sometimes when we
imagine we are fixed and established,
and have all our plans arranged, un
expectedly we are troubled by finding
that our hopes and expectations are
but ropes of sand; so it happened in
the case of one of these men; he im
agined or conceived that his lands
were gradually wearing out, when
prompted by a desire to own more fer
tile possessions, he allowed himself to
be swayed by the ideas then prevail
ing of seeking for this Eldorado in
the great West. He was well to do
in the world, and had by dint of hard
labor and close eeonomy- accumulated
quite a snug little sum of money. He
determined to move ; he made all ar
rangement, geared up his horses to his
wagon, filled it with all necessairies as
bedding, and-placed thereon his wife
and children. Accompanying him
was some two or three slaves, among
whom was one of those A fricans, called
Cuffee. It was really heartrending for
one to have seen the separation of the
three Africans ; the embraces, the
tears, the agonies of mind they ap
peared to be oppressed with; they
actually had to be separated from each
other by force. Being separated the
wagon rolled away by the strength of
a fine team, soon was lost amid the
mighty forests of this country that
spread out on every side. Mr. Jacob
Sligh, for such was the gentleman's
name, had made up his mind before~
starting to emigrate to Tennessee-a
grain country. There were but few
roads then, diverging here and there ;
so he struck out, as the nearest and
most direct route, by way of Newberry
C. H., which then gloried in a solitary
house and a blacksmith shop. On
the second day, about sundown, he ar
rived in the vicinity of Jalapa, when
he imcagined he had travelled a great
way and was now about on the con
fines of Kentucky. He had never
travelled so far North before. Jalapa
then was a beautiful section, with its
long drawn beautiful valleys, and glo
rious highlands carpeted with grass
and the wild pea vine and wild flow
ers of every hue. The woods of those
days were generally imposing. The
trees were large and far apart, while
deer and game of all kinds, which then
was abundant, could be' seen at long
distances. So picturesque and roman
tic seemed to him the scenery, so fer
tile appeared the soil, that it excited
the admiration of this adversturous
traveller and pioneer, who concluded
that he had gone far enough West for
one trip ; so he erected a tent for the
time, tethered his team to feed on the
wild grass, and looked around for a
suitable place. The place he selected
and purchased was the one which his
son Simpson Sligh owns and lives on
In the meantime so great was the
grief of Cuffee, that in his sorrows he
attempted to get back to his comrades;
but not being endowed with suffcient
instinct to retrace his steps he lost his
way, and in his wanderings and trou
ble of mind unfortunately hung him
self by the neck with a muscadine
vine on a high post oak. In this sit
uation he was found about two weeks
fterwards by Mr. Sligh himself,
whose attention was called while bunt
ig in the woods, in search of Cuffee,
by seeing a large number of buzzards
whirling about on the summit of the
ill, and who directing his steps thith
r, to his astonishment saw poor Cuf
fee's body swinging in the air.
eneath the shades of the tree
wherea his hndy swng it was, after
Strange to say they have never been
able to pass beyond a hill about 200
yards from the hill where lies the body
of the African. Here the hounds in
variably stop and lose trail, while no
entreaties or blowings of the horn or
threats can persuade them beyoud this
rise. Witbin the circle enclosing the
hill on which Cuffee lies, it is said by
the natives of this section, can he seen
now innumerable nuumbers of foxes
which have been collecting for a long
time, much to the surprise of the
neighbors, who whenever is heard the
hunter's born and the ringing music
of the pursuing hounds, commence an
interminable barking on every side,
while in connection, far above the
foxy discord, can be heard the wild
yell of the Congo African's ghost, bid
ding defiance to hounds and hunters
and every one else. This spot has
become the favorite resort now it
seems of all the foxes in Newberry,
gray as well as the red descendants of
of Sam Shelton's importation from
Virginia. It is the grand rendezvous
from Broad, Enoree, Bush and Saluda
rivers, as also from Indian and Dun
can creeks, and is termed by hunters
"The Fox's Paradise." It is said that
sometimes Col. Cannon, who lives on
a neighboring hill, when he hears the
huntsman's horn, walks out to see the
fun, and if he chances to see a fox
drifting on, hallo's out to him . Hur
ry up! hurry up ! Reynard to Cuf
fee's grave, for that is your land of
rest, where hunter's never come and
where dogs dare not molest you.
If any doubts this he has but to
call on John Campbell, merchant at
Jalapa, who will take great pleasure
in showing the hill, beyond which
dogs dare not presume and where the
chase ceases; and if they are not fear
fully superstitious, lead them over to
the hill where the remains of the
Congo African rest; amid the bushes
and undergrowth of which can be seen
peeping and slinking away, with rabid
eyes, hundreds of foxes, and where if
he chooses to remain, can be heard at
night that ceaseless barking, intermin
gled with the wild, defiant shrieks of
Cuffee, as he cheers whenevei-he hears
the fox hunter's horn and the cry of
the hounds, his "Foxy Army" on.

No one more prominent than the
Rev. Morgan Dix, Rector of Trinity
parish and son of the late Governor
Dix. At heart he sympathizes with
the ritualists, but his natural bent of
of mind is Jesuitical, and therefore
what encouragement he gives to the
innovators just mentioned is rather
covert than open. If he were to go to
extremes, his - stry, though "high
church'', might bring him up short,
and thus he might lose a position
which besides yielding a neat ten
thousand a year, gives him great in
fluence and enables him in many ways
to extend aid and comfort to more
open partisans of the new doctrines.

is a polite and courteous gentleman,

some modifying results, but however

James Gordon Bennett of the Her- f
