On Saturday night last, the color

before Rawlinson's Hotel, to seren.

who had arrived ber that afternoon.
An Immeuse crow: of persons illed
the sidewalk above and below the
hotel, collected partly by th) muosi
of the band, and partly, perhaps, to
create a demonstration in honor of

obstruct the usual passage of persona
engaged on other business. Toward
the clo:e of the demonstration, Wm.
If. Snyder-one of the marshals
while discharging this duty, met one
Tom Johnson, colored, who refused
to give way to the command of the
officer of the law. Snyder then at.
tempted to arrest him ; but Tom. re.
fusing to acknowledge the supremacy
of the law,jorked loose several times
and attempted to force his way at the
head of the crowd, whether or no.
Upon a third attempt to arrest him
he jerked Snyder's baton from his
hand and knocked him down. Snyder
then drew a pistol and fired five shots
at the belligerent darkey wounding
him in the face, shoulder, hand arm
and back-each shot taking effect
but not inflicting dangerous wounds.
The balls have been extracted, and
Tom is in a fair way to recover.
After a special investigatiun of the
facts before the town council, Mr.
Snyder was exonerated of all blame
in the matter, the shooting having

A Georgia Tragedy.
From the Albany News we learn
that on Tuesday last a most horrible
tr3gedy and murder occurred on M1
B. 11. Hill's "Mud Creek" plantation
in that county, in which Mr. Rush
the manager, and Paul Butler, a
freedman. working on the place, were
the parties, find both killed. On last
Monday there was adiffioulty between
the parties, in which the negro cursed
the white man, and the latter struck
him. On Tuesday morning, when the
negroes were on their way to the field,
#oine of then came up with Paul
Butler, who had his gun otn his shoul
der. He informed them that it was
his intention to kill Mr. Rush as soot
as he oamei out to the field. Hi
friends argued the matter with him.
and begged him to put his gun awa\
and go to wark, Ile refused to be
gov'erned by their advice, and porsist
a I in his murderous purpose swore he
would kill Mr, R, at first sight. All
hands then went to work except Paul,
his brother len, his relative, Bet,
Wade and his friend, Mose, Holt
the latter three being accounted fo,
at that time. Paul statione:d hiimeli
a short distance fron the laborers.
Mr. Rush rode up, and Paul advanced
towards him, and addressed him with:
"G-d d-n you, you shot at me yes
terday for nothing, and I'm ready
to shoot with you," whereupon, Mr.
Rush replied : "Don't come any near
er tme, stand back." Paul then said,
"You stand bauel." Mr. H. then at
tempted to draw his pistol, ind while
in the act, Paul levelled his gun and
fired, placing forty-eight deadly mis.
siles in the breast, abdomen. neck and
head of his victim-killing him in.
stantly. Paul then ran to his mule,
tied in the woods hard by, mounted
it, with gun in hand, and made oft
towards the "Hobbs P14ce," another
one of M r. [lill's plantations, followed
by the three missing negroes, Ben
Butler, Ben Wade and Moses Holt,
and perhaps some others.
At a gate opening into the Hobbs
plantation they found the dead body
of Paul lying on one side of the gate
and the gun on the other. The top
of his head was blown off and his
face b'irned with powder-showing
unmistakably that he had come to his
death by the accidental discharge of
the remaining barrel while going
through the gate on the mule.
The testimony satiz-fied the jury
that Ben Butler, Ben Wade and
Moses Holt were accessories, and
Deputy Sheriff Brown beirg present
with a posse, proceeded at once to ar
rest all three of them, and they are
now in jail awaitiug examination.
Driven insane by Dreams.
It has been found necessary to take
to an asylum a Detroit lady, who has
been made insane by a dream. Her
husband and one of her sons some
time since were drowned at sea, and
recently she dreamed that her son,
who is a sailor, had been drowned.
In her dteamn she saw him fall from
the mast in a gale in the sea, and
awoke with such a shriek of terror as
to arouse the inmates of tire house.
She slept bo more that night, but.
roeked to and fro, umaning that
"WVilliam was surely drowned, she
knewv he was.'' The next day her
relatives endeavored to banish her
imnpress'on, and almrost succeeded in
eenvitreing her that hrer boy was not
only safe, but would soon be home,
but that night the dream was repeat
ed, and this time the mnother seemed
to follow her boy aloft, and to fell
with him from ette yard, sgain giving

B ue Ridge Rall Road Traaifered to
Railroad circles have been busy
and somewhat lively for a week past,
and several important nm'etings of
railroad won have been held. We
learn that the upshot of the matter is
that there has been effected a sale of
thO State's stock in the Blue Ridge
ijilroad, and that the same has been
transferred to an association composed
of influential citizens and Northern
capitalists, and that there now is a
prospect of something being done to
complete this important enterprse,
which will do so much towards devel
opiug the resources of the State, and
whih will open a way to the rich
country beyond the mountains.,
We learn that a re survey of the
road has aready been ordered, with i
view of adopting the narrow guage
system, now being so generally dis
cussed throughout the country, and
already commenced upon the Tennes
see ; and which has also been demon
strated beyond a doubt, in Europe, to
effect a great saving in expenses, with
equal facilities for all demands of
trade and commerce.--Col. Union.
