Lefler from Ex -Governer i1er'y.
To the E.litor of the Newa s0
I concur most heartily with you
in your co)ntroversy with the Green
Ville Jaily NVews, as to the organi
zation of the democratic party for
the purpose of running a straight
ticket at oar next election. In my
opinion it would be folly to (o so.
Tho only question at issue now in
South Carolina is reform, and an
honest admninistrati on of the govern
mont. All who are in favor of lion
esty, light taxes and economical ex
pendituro of public money, whether
republicans or democrat s, white or
colored, should unite in purging thmo
Logislature and our public olpices of
roguery, corruption and incompe
tency. There is nothing else worthy
of enteinug into the Canvass next fall
for State officers, conuty oflicers an(1
minmbers of the legislature. If I

In the last election I opposed
' Governor Chmnberlain with all my
inflnence, lecauso . I thought he
would sustain and oeu(oura'.o his
party in their corruption andt dis
honesty, in their .oppressive taxation
and extravagant expelditmre of the
lpublic mYoniey. I now cheerflly
confess that in1 all this I was ic..

Hats bean honest, wise and patriotic,
as far as it was possible for hint to
m;iake it such.
If Governor Chanilerlan contin

.tItink it would be exceedingly unwise
and ungrateful for the party to op
pose 1,is ro election. It is si11(1 thlat

own party and sup 'porters in tihe
lce'ioni. Ii -lppo : oCed, as he oughSlt
to be, in the next election by the
democratic party and the hone-t
portion of the republican party, he
will have a wider and better field
to select from.
I think the great mass of the
colored people are beginning to see
th:tt they aro in no way belefited
by electing corrupt men to oflice
having heavy taixes to pay. If the
white people will purseailc liberal
policy towards them, my impressin
is they woubl discard the scoiundireis
who have govei ned them since their
emancipation, by making them be
liye that they were in danger of
being thrown back into slavery, or
having their political rights taken
from them.

A Lady Torn to Pieces by Fero
cious Dogs.
The people of Natchez were, -on
Sunday morning last, shocked be
yond description by the announce
mont that Mrs. James Fagan, an es
tinable and industrious lady of this
city, in humble life, had been, at a
quarter to nine o'clock that morning,
attacked by threo forocions dogs,
And so torn and manged that her
death was imminent. 4
This announconenU Was first niado
in St. Mary's Cathedral at the ton
o'clock mass by Very Rev. Father
Grignon, who had just boon notified
and 'yas about proceeding to admin
ister to the poor lady the sacraments
of the Catholic Church, of which she
was a member.
The announcem'not of her death,
which occurred at about 1 o'clock,
was so horrifying, so sad, so painful,
that-very few, if any, could reclize its
import. It was almost impossible
to realize that, in almost the very
heart of the city, in the broad glare
of a Sunday morning's day, a hu
man being had been set upon and
destroyed by dogs before assistance
could reach her.
And yet it was all true, and one
of those strange truths. st.tangor far
than fiction, which nothing can re
concile and yet nothing render less
Mrs. Fagan was an humble, indus
triouis, anid Iharclworking woman,
wife of Mr. Jamu;es Fagan and mother
of a family consisting of two girls
and one boy. The family resided
at the eastern end of Stato street,
next neighbors to Mr. Win. Abbott.
On Sunday morning, her cow not
living retlurnecd in hike tiime, shio went
in the direction of the bayou, just
beod her re.ideneo, to look for the

town, and crying ou nt tlhalt ia woman
had lcen al!t esit.e'1n u1p by dogs,
ieoiignazttimg at thIle Suae time the
location. 'Thee boy, whenl l o reached
Mr. Eustis, decribed )to him what he
had wit mssed. Hie said lie had been
attracted by the screamiis, and going
to hie spot, found ia iday (Mrs. F.,)
in a (tfall or galley of the bayou,
her head ontl being out of the water
it ('on taimed and her body submerged,
and three dogs, which he dct:eribed,
ferociously biting and tearing at
hior'i: he lad, on seeing the situation,
driven th dlogs away, for some dis
tance, midut imvin g don so camiie to
notify Mr. Euistia and get help.
Mi. E u:hstis, imrnaediately after
hearing theo boy's narraltion, proce'ea
oil to the spot. Thoro ho found
poo' M. Fagan, submerged, as we
hav LOsaid,-in them water of the gn11y,
upi to heri neck, and her fa~ce (all then

mmuIl Ites after tihe dogs had dono-0
the(ir dradLfl work. When Mr-.
Euis ~Jpoposed to help the poor('
womaen out of thme water, she wvithi
hereo ii modesty, diselosed the horri
ble0 woirk thme dogs hadl done, saying
to h~mihu r. Ei.,) that the dogs had
stippled the clothing from her per-~
soin, anid requnesting Mr. Euistis to
get a shawl or blamket to cover lher
before she should :gut out of tihe
wanter. What agonizing torture she
must hav-ie ondu11red in this assertion
of lher modesty can only be imagined
whion'it is known that, after Mr.
EustLis had sont to Mr. H. M. Gas
trelfs house (the nearest to the
sceo~,) and got a blaniket, and she
had beeun taken to Mr. Gasmtroli''s
houso5, to die, as thei sequel0 proved,
from licr terrible wvoundp, despite

D)rs. Metealfo and .MePhieeters, it
wais foundi that not only the poor
wonlum'ks face had hoon~ torni to) pices,
limbs had been almnost stipped ' of
flesh, and yet shie lay -there in thc

iir' look the p~bOr wormani to Mr.
Glastrell's residenice, and there, be
fore two o'clock, afteria ifvinig receivedl
the last sacramminits oi her church,
she died. About the spot where she
h ad hmeon discoveredl andl rose ued,
alats I too hate, were found evidences
of a most fear ful conitest betwooen
the p)oor victim and the ferocious
dogs. Heri shiawl, stripis of her
cliing, of which slhe had been al
miost en ti rely denmuded, and giloat
picos of flesh from almost overgi
parit of her body, woro( found within
a shmort distance of the place, scat..
I red in every direcioin.
Gentlemen who afterwards went
to thme scene of the terrible tragedy,
tracked the (logs up the right b.anh
of the bayou for a contilerab .~ di~
taca- - - -;
The boy who 'tiist came np on o
sceno describes the dogs as a white
spotted bull dog, a black dog with
long hair, and wo hear that Mrs. Fa
gun herself, who never lost con
sciotusness front thg finding of her to
her death, coiciuts kith. the boy ex
actly in the description.
It has not yet, at this writing,
(half-past ten o'clock p. in ,) been as
certainod whose dogs they wore that
did this terrible deed, but the whole
police force was yesterday engaged
in searching and trying to identify
them, so they could be killed.
On Sinday there was a rumor
among ot1-s, that the dogft were
Mr. M. H. Gastrell's, but those who
brought Mrs. F. from the scone to
Mr. Gastroll's (whore she died), saw
IMr. Gastrell's dogs in his yard, a
few moments af the occurrence, and
Mr. Eustis' boy who drove tho dogs
off says they bore no resemblando to
any of Mr. Gastrll's dogs. One
of them is a large dog, and that one,
indeed all of them, were quiet, cloan,
and enclosed, as they worokept, and
none answering the descriptions
given. Mr. Fagan himself, the be
reavod husband, having investigated,
is satisfie( that Mr. Gastrell's dogs
had nothing to do with it.
Since writing the above we have
seen Mr. Eustis himself ; ho tells us
that the boy left his residence at
about half past eight o'clock, to take
somtlo cows over to G(en. CTark's
1to u tilhmdvl place, that on the way ho
heard the dogs amid lokiig in that
dilCetion saw Mis. iFa;an 's hand I
)eiig pilled to all hither by them
that the hoy then cate to hiam (giv

Her own statement, Mr. Eustis
tells us. is that she found the dogs
(describing them as we have stated,)
furiously attacking her cow, which
had noimt beeni up for two days, aed
she t temapted to keep the dogs oft

referred. Mr. Long offered resolu ..
trons and 4, letter from the. Prairie
Valley Grange, Indian Torlitory, in
regard to patrons ginning cotton
declining to pay more than one
twefth of the cotton to gins, upon
which Governor Overton, part o'ner
of. the gins, issues an ordei drohiib:
iting the carrying out of the resolu

tIh(3 members of the said grange i
from the Bhicklasaw Nation in the'
Indian Tori tory. A lotter from the
Master of said grange stated that
under said order some were leaving
and others Were unablo to got away.
Mr. Long stated that he had written
