DEAn bin: The Rihelmond ED
quiror, of the 29th of August, re
ports Col. Withory, in his Warrenton
speech, as having said, "in reference
to Longstreet, he not only accepted
the issue, but went over for money,"
I hopo that I am not asking too
much in appealing to you and your
friends to mako known the truth in
The charge of Col. Withers as
-stated, is so vaguo and indefinito that
I can find nothing in reply except
general denial and the record of my
qnotivea as announced by mne from
'timo to time.
There has been no room at any
time for doubt as to my motives and
wishes in regard to our politics.
When they were first announced in
the spring of 1862, Istated expres dy
that I could seo no other way by
whiich the Southern peoplo could rO
instate themselves in proper sympa
thy and relations with the General
Government, and thus save them
selvas greater lo%es and humilia
tion. There commenced and ended
>all my reasons and motives in con
-nootion with this matter) and my
letters have so plainly expressed my
views that no one can misconstrue
ithen except they do so through
If Colonel Withers 1:nows the re
cord, and he virtually claims to
it wlhen he makcs grave allega
tionas as matters of fact, lie
know when ho aade his charge
that it was not true. If ho made
ttiom in ignorance or reckle.
disregard of facts he is equally culni
In order, however, to placo the
natter beyond question or doult, i
propose that Col. Withers gives the
namiaes of thc parties to tlhis transic
tion and the time and place 4, it:,
occurrenace, so ats to gi'3 m1o oIe.
thing tanagible. i thlink that I C; I
unfely pronise himia, as soon s he nuts
his charge in such share as to c:.iblo
Inae tu take held of it, that i will
prove to the world that there is not a
word of truth in his allegations
ugainst me, nor even a reasoin for
them except in malice.
Anaother V irgininn, R ov. Mr. 'el.
d leton, ainiing to avail hitmself of th
prejwlice gotten up on false ,tate
n:ena, goes back nino or ton yo A.
o attack my record as a soldinr.
L. w ill say to him, as I have said iti
reference to the other charge, that i,
is too vague and indefinite as it stands
to be met by the evidence of' I it -
nessesa.. But if he will give the namr.
oi' the sti- ff otleer's of (G en. Jce aid

to prove by his own witnesses that, his

The particulars of a htorriblo affair,
wrhh resultedl in thc death otf a
tcaeacr nud a young iman, one of hii.
pnpjils, in JBianks county, G1eorg ia
Anigusit, 28, are given by 11)o A tlnmaa~
lIcfrald. The teacher was Mar. A I fred
.Alexandor,' aged 40) years, and thle
studenat Mr. J1olin 1I. NoI ss, aged
about '21. Tfhe wife of the teacher
was ac'customed to observie the denoa; 1
Inuent of the pupils, said wthen 'thay
were guilty of anly breach of deerum
to report thema to lher husband for
reprof orci other punishmilent. She
reported young M~oss, wholi denied the
charge made by lhen, and this led to
an ianimaizted aiid angry dispute.
A lexainder became enragedl at thmo
young muan for the part takeni by haim
in the conatroversy, and, advancing
foward Moss, drew a knaifo and stab
bed han in the breast. Moss thore
upoan plunged a dlagger into Alevan
(dor's heart, who fell faital ly wounded.
Moss turned to leave, but Mrs. Ahex,
ander, who was at the side of lheu' hus.
Laud, wvrung the knifo from his hand
and adminiistored one or two se'vero
cuts to Moss in the hack, near the
region of the spine. TheIa result, was
that, both lay mortally \vouinded on
the scone of' tho conifliot, and expired
in a short time the cane withina three
minutes of the other. It is not deli
nitely knaowni whether M1oss died from
the wounds received fi'om the~ wife or
husband, as all were sever'o and rea
sonably suflicient to pi'oduco death.
Theli school and theo entir'e cranimunity
were thrown into consternation and
