THE RIOT Ifl GEORGIA.
THE PARTICULARS OF 1HE AFFAIR-BOTH
SIDES OF THE STORY.
ATLANTA, GA., Sept. 22.-The particulars of
the riot RB telegraphed from Bainbridge to Au?
gusta yesterday are incorrect and exaggerated.
The following gives the acconnt of both sides.
0. H. Howard, Bvt. Maj. U. S. A., and Sub
Assistant Commissioner of the Freedmen's Bu?
rean, telegraphs Gen. Sibley, commanding the
District, the following :
ALBAN T, September 19th, at 1 o'clock P. M.
Ishmael Lunner, a freedman, reported himself
directly from Camilla, Mitchell County, stating
that he had- left there at two o'clock, P. M.,
and that in the forenoon this day he approached
Camilla with John Murphy, and Wm. K. Pearce,
candidate for Congress from the Second Dis?
trict, and F. F. Pat Dey, white, and about seven?
ty-five colored personn en route to Camilla,
where Pearce and Murphy were to deliver po?
litical addresses. Upon approach*".;; Camilla the
relator bein g in advanca. T?O accosted by an
armed and mounted v;b:te man, who at first
stated that he was m search of a doctor to attend
a freedman, who had been hurt by falling off a
tree, bnt who subsequently stated that he was
a courier, and advised the relator and others
of the party who had overtaken him, not to go
to towu, as the people there were determined
that the Radi cala should not speak in Camilla.
Notwithstanding this warning, the party mov?
ed on towards Camilla, when they were met by
the Sheriff and posse, who accosted Captain
Pearce, and who was assured by Capt. Pearce
that he desired and intended to speak in
Camilla on political subjects. The Sher?
iff endeavored to dissuade him from
doing so, telling him that the peo?
ple would not permit it. The Sheriff then
went back into Camilla, and again returned,
saying that he had done all in his power to
? dissuade the people from violence, but with no
avail. The party then moved on to the town.
Pearce and bis party entered the town, dis?
mounted from their buggy, and hitched their
i hone vt the oourtbonse. As the wa sro a con?
taining the music entered the town it was
fired upon by the mounted white man who had
first accosted the relator, and by several other
white men. The freedmen then started to es?
cape to the woods, but Pearce attempted to
rally them, calling on them not to fly. The
colored men, being unarmed, would not stop,
and the relator, being mounted, dashed out of
town. A part of the freedmen were on foot
and a part of the musician s who had abandon?
ed the wagon. Murphy and Philip Joiner being
in a buggy, also drove rapidly away towards
Albany. The relator kopt ahead of them. When
about seven miles from Camilla the buggy
containing Murphy and Joiner waa overtaken
by five or six white men mounted aad armed.
T baggy waa stopped, and one horse dashed
riderless up the, road io wards the relator, who
saw th? pursuers around the buggy. Some of
them dismounted. He then came as rapidly
as possible to Albany,
The following ia the statement cf the sheriff
cf Mitchell County, sworn to by himself and
other prominent ci tirane. It is addressed to
the member? o? the Legislature:
On Saturday, 19th instant, it was made
known to the citizens of Camilla that John
Murphy, of Albany. Ga., had iesued a circular
and secretly cutmJated the same among the
colored men of thia county, ordering them to
bring their arma with them to a political meet?
ing advertised for that day at this place. Th's
information waa corroborated by state?
ments made by Robert Cochran, Sen
ior, Thomas Jones and others, who came
from the road m the direction of Albany.
They stated that armed negroes were assem?
bling in large numbers at China Grove Church
waiting for the delegation from Albany, head?
ed by said Murphy and Pearce, candidate for _
Congress, who were to be the speakeiB for the t j
occasion. At the request of the citizens M. J. 1
Poore, Sheriff, with a committee of six other
citizens, went out to meet the said procession,
and to protest against armed negroes being I r
marched in procession in our to .rn, and to '
state to them distinctly, that if they would put
down their arms no objection would be made
to.their entering the town and holding their
poktical meeting.. The Sheriff delivered this
message to Murphy and Pearce, the leaders of
the procession, and they replied that they
had nothing to do with. ' those armed
men, the guns belonged to them, and
they were in the habit of carrying them wherev?
er they went. The Sheriff replied that, as a
peace officer, it waa his duty, under the law, to
forbid assemblages of armed men at political
meetings, and assured them that if they entered
town with their musio and banners, followed by
armed men, as they then frere, that there would
be a breach of the peace,. and he. would not be
responsible fort be consequences. Shortly af
v forwards the column moved into town in regu?
lar order, headed by Pearce, the candidate for
Congress, and one Putney (white) in a buggy,
armed with a double barrel shot gim, a Spencer I ?
rifle and two pis iola, with a quan?tv of ammcni
tion, as was afVarwarda ascertained. The next
vthicle was a four horse wagon containing
the band and a number of armed negroes.
Next followed a column of negro men on
on foot, between three and four hundred,
attende*I by about twenty outriders. At least
one-half, if not , two-thirds, were armed with
guns, and mont of them with pistols. The .
mu?o was playing, and the crowd noisy and | B
threatening in their conduct. Murphy and
one Philip Jom ar, a negro, were in a buggy in
?the rear. AM tho head of the column approach?
ed the square, one of our citizens James
Johns, who'wail intoxicated, approached within
a few feet ot tho column and ordered the musio
to stop, which order was not obeyed, but the
column mored on. When about twenty steps
xrom him, his. gun was fired, whether inten?
tionally or unintentionally ?B not known; bat
it was pointed in a different directioo, .ind the
contents Strunk the ground about twelve feet
from OMT?, The column then Heda volley-some
of the shots at Johns, but most of them in the
direction bf Maples* store, thirty or forty stops
from the column, at which place there was a
number of our citizens, all unarmed, dix ot
whom were wounded. Immediately on the
shooting, about twenty of om citizens sprung
to their arms and fired into the column, by
which two negroes were killed and a number
unknown wounded. The negroes immediately
broke to a thick cluster of timber, one hundred
yards north of the oourthousc. At this point
there was an attempt made by Peirce to rally
his routed forces, but thirty citizen s, a part of
them mounted, made a charge and com?
pletely routed the whole force, Pearce flying
through the woods and fields. Murphy and
Phil Joiner escaped in a baggy up the road to?
ward Albany. Keren neg]roes were killed. From
the best information we have been able to pro?
cure, between thirty and forty were wounded,
all of whom were properly oared for. It is a
source of deep regret that the calamitous con
sequen eec ct this affair fell exclusively upon
the poor deluded negroes, who were lea on by
wicked white men, Murphy, Pearce and Put?
ney, who aO made good their escape in the
hour of danger with but little injury, to them?
selves. Ihis sad result is to be ?.attribut?
ed more to the sharpness and shrewdness
of these gallant leaders in effecting their es?
cape than to any want of intention on the part
of our people. We hereby disavow any pur?
pose or intention ou the part of ourselves or
our citizens to violate law or the peace of the
State in what was done. We were willing, and
so expressed ourselves to these leaders, for
them to hold, their political- meeting at the
courthouse in our town if the negroes were dis?
armed; but we did tiiink, and still think, that
it was our duty to obey the orders of the Sher?
iff, as a civil officer of this State, in breaking
Sthis unlawful assemblage. We felt that as
rir numbers vastly exceeded that of our
citizens presect. that if this meeting had
takon place, the lives of our wives and children
would be at the mercy of an infuriated mob.
While the consequences are to be regretted,
and we do not boa-1 of what was done by our
people, we feel that we hare but discharged a
painful duty, imposed br wicked and corrupt
white men, now engaged in leading astray into
acts of lawlessness the colored people of our
country. We appeal to the law-making powers
of Georgia, and the lawful authority of the
United States Government, to check the pro?
gress of these strolling criminals who are
prowling about the homes and disturbing the
peace and quiet of our war-stricken people.
The foregoing statements, from the military
and civil authorities, give fall particulars of
the riot The Governor has addressed a mes?
sage to the Legislature recommending that the
President be petitioned for troops.
He says that the right of all people to peace
fully assemble has been violently and barbar?
ously impaired, and the civil officers rendered
powerless to maintain the peace. He earnestly
recommends the L?gislature to make immedi
at? application to the President for a sufficient
military force to be stationed in Mitchell Conn
tj to preserve the peace and protect the lives
and property of the citizens. He traces the
occurrence to a determination, publicly ex
pressed by one political party, that their oppo?
nent should not Jiold political meetings.
The message was referred to the Committee
on the State of the Republic This afternoon
the committee made a report. They say that
the evidence submitted to the Governor is un
true, and accompany the same with sworn tes?
timony. The report gave rise to an exoiting
discussion, but was adopted by a vote of one
hundred and twelve to thirty.
IN THE HOUSE, the majority and minority re
r orts relative to the Governor's message caused
a heated discussion, and the majority report
was at length adopted. This Bays that the
evidence preferred by the Governor has not
been sustained by the evidence produced be?
fore the coTainittee. The whole difficulty arose
from certain persone, Pearce, Murphy and Put
ney, bein:; at the head of an tinned company
of freedmen at Camilla. This right was dis?
puted by the Sheriff of the county. The per
sistence of the one party and the determina?
tion of the other caused the disturbance. They
find the civil authorities fully able to execute
the laws, and there is no necessity for military
interference. This report is signed by one
senator and four members of the House, one
The following report is from Judge Vason
and Mr. Johnson, who were requested by Lieut.
Soward, of the Freedmen's Bureau, to investi"
gate the Camilla riot :
To live Senate and House oj Representatives of
ttie Stale of Georgia :
We left Camilla thia dav noon, all quiet, no
appr?hension felt for further trouble. The act
of the citizens was under orders of the Sheriff,
rhey acted as his posse. in the whole affair.
The negroes in the county are all quiet. No
bad feeling exists between them and the whites
growing out of the affair. But few negroes ? i
were present exoept those in the procession.
There is no necessity for any additional force

?egroes will be cared for, and have the sym?
pathy of the whites. The whole difficulty "ori

[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. ]
COLUMBIA (S. C.), September 21,1868.-Hav
ng already telegraphed you all that was actu?
ally accomplished by both Houses beyond tbe
second reading of a few bills and some such
jther unimportant and uninteresting matters
jf detail, it is not worth wh?a to tire your
readers with a formal record of the proceed?
ings of that intelligent and dignified body,
yclept the General Assembly of South Caro?
The only matter of dramatic interest that oc
;urred to-day was the discussion in the Senate
m the suspension and virtual expulsion of
Leslie. As you yesterday served up the ar fro?
ments on this delicate topic ad nausezm, I
?hall confine myself to the manner and air of
some of the orators (?). That the situation
nay be understood, clearly, however, let me
state how the matter was brought up. Hoyt
[white), from Colleton, moved to reconsider
he vote by which the Senate refused to expel
Leslie on Saturday. He said that he bad voted
igainst Leslie's expulsion before, but his
speech on Saturday night had been the straw
hat broke the earners 3>ack, and he would
jear with him no longer, and much more to
he same effect. Of course this opened the
trhole field of discussion again, and there were
lot lacking those, fend of the sound and fury
)f their own voice?, to take advantage of the
opportunity. Donaldson (white) defended
Leslie in a quiet, sensible speech, in which he
warned his brother rips against the odium
tvhich they would bring upon rhems-<! ves ?md
their party by interferincr with free speech.
He aaid that to-morrow muralug it would bo
heralded in every town and village of the Union
that the Senate of South Carolina had expelled
i man because he uttered sentiments disagree?
ing with their own.
This allusion to the power of the press kin
?led the dormant wrath of the Burnt District,
rhe smoke and flames broke forth in suffoca?
ting fury. In fact the Burnt District was in
ts most flaming condition. Lying rebels and
rampant disloyalty were the staples of his irate
harangue. But the speech cannot bo properly
ippreciated without some idea of the appear?
ance of the-poor devil in the aot of uttering it.
There he stood, not square, fleshy and saddlc
:?..jredas he waa familiar to the c?iirens of
Charleston before the renowned adventure that
rave him his sobriquet ; but long, lank, cadav
uroue, loosely jointed, his leather colored skin
luxcharged with bile and clinging dark and
liscolored to his high cheek bones, bis long
>lack coat hanging from his shoulders as if
rom two pegs, his beard unshaven for three
lays, a proportionate amount of d rt unwashed,
lis left hand holding the ?appel of his coat,
tis right arm pumping up and down
n the favorite gesture which he learned in his
joyhood in his efforts to procure the water
vhich he carried on his head in the streets of
tis native Mud Town. To add to the absurdi
y of this Senatorial caricature, the utifortu
iate wretch has been expending his per diem
n castor oil, in tho vain effort to straighten
mt the kinks of his wool. His whole head
:over has been stretched to an unnatural
engtb, and on about one-fifth of his head tho
tinks have been straightened into a wave and
he surface shines like a newly polished boot.
Che (otU ensemble is irresistible. I defy any
nan with the least sense of the ridiculous to
>ehold it and keep his countenance. The
imount of malice that animates ' this score
:row can only be accounted for by supposing
he heart (?) to be as hideous as the body.
Lithough ho hates Leslie as a mad dog does
Tater, yet he protested most solemnly that he
vas not actuated by any personal motives. Il
s a pity the scene was not laid in South Amer
ca, for assuredly the earth would have opened
ind swallowed np such a brazen-faced hypo?
Rainey also took occasion to work himself up
into a fine phrenzy. This unfortunate mulat?
to has "dignity of the Senate" upon the brain,
ind, of course, his vivi I imagination digested
in harrowing terms the insulte offered by that
bete noir, Leslie, to the august body of which
the baiber ielt himself so important a part.
Rainey cultivates a pair of black, bushy side
whiskers, aDd, as be felt them undulating with
the motion of his mouth, his spirits rose, and
his sentencos, which had been at first broken
and hesitating, carno forth bold, and round,
and ringing, until I have no doubt he imag?
ined himself no mean successor of Preston or
Calhoun. Here is a small specimen of tho bar?
ber's eloquence : "I have been pained at what
I may call the Billingsgate eloquenco of the
senator from Barnwell. I have been pain ed
that he should become recreant to the princi?
ples he had espoused, to the principles which
enabled him to enter this Senate as a
member. I am pained that he should bo
a renegrad?. But, j sir, it is .not for
that I vote to punish him. There is a cer?
tain amount of dignity this body must
maintain^ and we will show those who act de?
rogatory to it, that we know our rigl 's, and
knoning, dare assert and maintain them, too.
Why, I've Been him, Mr. President, when you
have ruled him ont of order, rise again with
his snarling smile and ask if you meant him,
and when you said yes, he would scowl at yt a
and talk at you with th 2 fury of a hyena-e, un?
til I thought you would come down from your
seat and say by your actions that "the business
of this Senate could not proceed I" Upon my
wcrd, I thought the fellow was going to say,
"Come down from your seat and knock him in
the month," or something similar.
Hayne, another fancy mulatto, also pitched
in on the dignity question, and described the
awful conduct of poor Leslie in such vivid col?
ors, that if ha'f h9 siiid were true, the only
wonder is that the illustrious body did not die
of mortification on the 20th of August.
The upshot of the whole business was, that
the motion to reconsider was carried, and the
vote showing that two-thirds could not be ob?
tained tor expulsion, Corbin moved to suspend
him for six months, which only required a
majority, and that was carried, eight whites
and eight negroes voting for it, and ten whites
against it. The result ls, that the ' bounty"
of Barnwell will be deprived of representation
in the Senate daring the next regular session,
and if the Democrats or any other dissatisfied
members dare to speak their opinions about
the rascalities of the majority, they too will be
? bill which was read the second time in the
House to-day attracted my attention. It was a
bill requiring the Governor to release all con?
victs from the Penitentiary who had been con?
fined for more than six months fer larceny,
and for an extraordinary time for other offen?
ces. How true the saying: "A fellow feeling
makes as wondrous kind."
THE LETTES OF JOHN QUINCY ADAMS ACCEPTING
THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION FOB QOVEBKOB
OF MASSACHUSETTS-A STATESMAN'S VIEW OF
The synopsis which the telegraph has al?
ready given us of the letter of the Hon. John
Quincy Adams, accepting thc Democratic nomi?
nation for Governor ot Massachusetts, gives
but an imperfect idea of the force and signifi?
cance of that manly and statesmanlike docu?
ment. After deploring the condition to which
Radical rule has reduced our national finances,
and commending the demand of the Democ?
racy for a sound and honest currency, Mr.
Adams proceeds to say : .
But evea if I differed with you on this sub?
ject, and saw any relief in the party chiefly re?
sponsible (or our present deplorable financial
condition, I regard the second or vital question
of such moment, that my political action would
be governed by the attitude of the opposing
parties ir reference to that alone. The
issue which, in my mind, dwarfs all others
is, shall the constitution or shall a party man?
date be tho supreme law of the land? Fidelity
to the constitution should be the final test
of political affiliation to-day. But to act with
the party which has ruled the country with su?
preme dominion for three years past, I must
agree with them thai the constitution contem?
plated an uiti nate absorption of the most im?
portant functions of the Executive Department
by Congress, that its fair construction will au?
thorise that Dody to wrest from the Judiciary
Departmont jurisdiction in cases where its
judgment upon constitutional questions of the
first magnitude may possibly conflict with that
or a majority therein, I must stand ready to fix
my name to a declaration of political faith
which expressly manes approval of the im?
peachment ol the President a test of party fel?
lowship; and, flna'ly, I must be able to Bay
upon my conscience that I consider "recon
stiuctiou," for the sake of which all this and
much more has been done, ia wise, statesman?
like and constitutional. Now, I have always
thought with Mr. Seward, that the wis?
est way to treat the wounds left by
tho war was to let them heal "by
first i tontion." But "reconstruction" has
torn them open day by day, until they ara
now a mass of well-nigh incurable gan?
grene. I believe that uuo statesmanship would
have imposed on the Southern leaders the task
of bringing their people back into the Union
by frankly and confidently offering to them,
the day they laid down their arms, the right
hand of oblivion of tho past and reconciliation
in the futuro, which they might reject if they
wiehod or dared. "Reconstruction" has scorn?
ed their pr Heels, repelled their aid, insulted
their misery and inflicted ou them an abase?
ment which they felt to be intolerable in post?
ing over them their slaves of yesterday to se?
cure their pledge of submiBBion to the consti?
tution. But for this ungenerous and suspi?
cious policy, I believe we might now have been 1
a truly united people, the Southern white re?
conciled to the inevitable, the negro secure in
his civil rights, and attaining political privileges
as he B rew fit to use them wisely, and the North
ennobled by a viotory more glorious than any
ieat of arms-the conquest of its own passions.
I will not argue the unconstitutionality of
"reconstruction." The almost unanimous dis?
inclination of the Republicans in Congress to
allow it to undergo the scrutiny df the Su?
preme Court, would seem to confirm the re?
ported statement of the lamented Mr. Stevens,
"that only two damned fools iu the party be?
lieved the Reconstruction acts to be constitu?
tional." Even if they were so, I should still
deem them unwise. The union they impose ie
to my eyes no more like a true union of hearts
and hands than a galvanized corpse resembles
a healthy man. All the doings of men are gov?
erned by the laws of nature. The attempt to
subordinate the trained and able class of white
landholders ut the South to the poor, ignorant,
debased and landless freedman, is one of those
futile struggles to repeal God's law by statute,
with which history abounds. It must fail,
but it is of great moment that it should be
stopped at once. Every day it lasts it is
encouraging false hopes in tho negro and
renderimr a resumption of a true rela?
tion between the blacks and the whites
more difficult. I think that neither the in?
stincts nor the destiny ot this people will allow
any permanent domination to tho African race
in any State of the Union. But the Republican
party is irrevocably pledged to thiB idea.
They have staked their existence as a party on
its triumph. To this idol they have sacrificed
their constitutional obligations in the past,
aud for it they must find fresh offerings in tho
future. The blacks must have lands and anns,
and a standing army to maintain them in their
false position. They aro clamoring for them
LOW, and the United States must famish them.
The path upon which Congress has entered
permits no halt, and retreat is ruin. Ia my
opinion we must Btart anew taking the consti?
tution for our guide and natural laws for our
limitations, lt is true that the Democratic
party in success may violate the pledges of ad?
versity, and again subvei t the organic law. The
teachings and :he practice of Radicalism have
destroyed much of the old reverence for the pre?
cious legacy of our ancestors. We may dread
lest they should do this thing, but we do cer?
tainly know that thc Republican party has al
ready done it. At least it is a chance-a last
chance of salvation. If that fails us-if we
must submit to the whims of a majority with?
out appeal, it matters but little to me whether
it rejoices in the name of Republican or delicrhts
in the title of Democrat. If a party in the na?
tion may constitute itself the sole arbiter of the
constitution ah ty of its own measures, then se?
cession was illegal only because it was not tho
act of a majority. The battle is between Con?
gress and the Constitution. For my part I am
for the Constitution.
Holding these opinions, I shall act with the
Democratic party so long as it ts the party of
I am, sir, with gre at respect,
Tour friend and servant,

THE PROSPECT IN GEORGIA-FIFTY THOUSAND
MAJOR ITT FOB 8ETM0UB AND BLAIR.
A correspondent of the New York Herald,
writing from Brnnswick, Ga., under date of |
9th instant, says :
I should not be at all astonished if the Radi?
cals are beaten in Georgia by fifty thousand
majority. Predictions regarding what the
vote of a State will be are not generally safe to
be relied upon, but I will venture to predict it
in th ig instance. To commence with, there is
the white clement, at least eight-tenths of |
which will vote the Democratic ticket. This
will number not less than ninety thousand
votes, and may reach as high as one hundred
thousand. No threats, arguments or bribes
can change the intention of this body. Its vote
will be cast solid against Grant and Colfax.
Next comes the negro element, which is the
great prize for both parties to win. If all the
negroes could be induced to vote the Radical
ticket, they, with the fifteen thousand whitos
who will vote it, would carry the State. But
they cannot. I have visited every Congres?
sional District in Georgia, and, from all the in?
formation reeeived, would estimate the negro
vote for the Democracy as follows :
Dist Dem. Vote.
Dist Dem. Vote.
Unless the October elections dishearten the
whites, there will be 200 000 votes cast in Geor?
gia next November, as follows :
For Seymour and Blair.116.000
For Grant and Colin.85, OOo
To sum up the prospect, the political result
in Georgia bids fair to be nine electoral votes
for Seymour and. Blair, five and probably six
Democratic Congressmen, and one, and per?
haps two, Radical Congressmen.
The Fatal snooting Affray at Fayette*
?Hie, JSortn Carolina.
The Town of Fayetteville N. C., was the
scene of much excitement on Friday last,'grow?
ing out of a shooting anray at the Fayetteville
Hotel between Mr. R. W. Steadman and Dr. W.
H. Morrow, which resulted in the death of
both parties. Politics was the cause of the
difficulty, Mr. Steadman being a warm Demo?
crat, and Dr. Morrow, though formerly a Sur?
geon in the Confederate army, a native North
Carolina Radical-one who bad taken the teat
oath, and who held the position of a United
States Deputy Marshal. The facts of the affair
are these :
Both Mr. Steadman and Dr. Morrow were
at Joueeboro' on Friday to hear the discussion
between Cols. McRoy and Dockery, the Demo?
cratic and Radical candidates for Congress
from this district. While returning on the
cars to Fayettevihe, they became engaged in
au altercation, during which Dr. Morrow
either drew, or threatened to draw, a pistol.
Mr. Steadman was unarmed, and remarked
tho fact at the time. Nothing more then
came of the affair until after their arrival in
Fayetteville. Mr. Steadman, it seems, armed
himself with a pistol, and after proceeding
Quietly up the street uitil he arrived at tho
ayetteville Hotel, he there chanced to meet
Dr. Morrow who, immediately on Mr. Stead
man's approach, drow his pistol. Mr. S. then
in turn drow his weapon, and while Dr. M. was
still in the act of aiming, fired, the ball enter?
ing the body of his antagonist just below the
heart. Dr. M. then fell to the floor, but raised
himself up to fire. Three shots each were ex?
changed, the Becond shot fired by Mr. S. taking
effect in his antagonist's right side, and the
third missing lum-altogether. The first two
shots fired by Dr. M. missed the objeot entire?
ly- the third, however, passed through tbe
right lung of Mr. S., who, after receiving this
wound, turned upon bis heel and walked off
several pact-B, when ho staggered and would
have fallen, but was caught ny some ooo stand?
ing near. He was then taken in the Hotel and
died in about fifteen minutes. Dr. Morrow lived
until the following morning, when he also
The affair of course could not transpire with?
out excitement. A leading Radical negro in the
crowd, named Jim Bowman, was heard to re?
mark that this was "but the beginning of what
was to come.'' Seeing that he was treading on
dangerous ground, he took care to retire
Mr. Steadman was a native of Fayetteville,
and much esteemed by those who knew hun.
being a man whose high sonso of honor ana
cool personal courage gained for him great
respect. His course during the war was
such as to give a reputation to any man.
At the Bethel fight he killed the first
Federal soldier known to have fallen
in tho war. Afterwards at Battery Waguer,
while in Captain Ramsay's Company, 51st North
Carolina troops, he prominently distinguished
himself. During tho bombardment at that
point, on one occasion ho loaded and fired
a gun twice unaided and alone aftor it had
been deserted by the gunnors. Still later,
at the Wilderness in Virginia, seeing a
light piece of artillery upon the field be?
tween our lines and the enemy, the horses
to which had all boen killed, and the gun
forsaken by the cannoneers, he called for
volunteers, headed the squad he was thus
euabled to form, and undor the most gal?
ling firo brought the pieco off in safety. For
this act lie waa personally complimuutod by
General A. P. Hill, his corps commander, and
others of his superior officers. These are prom i
?ent among his many distinguished ana meri?
torious acta as a soldier.
Dr. Morrow was a native of Chapel Hill, and
served as a surgeon in the Confederate army
throughout the war, but by afterwards aposta?
tizing himself in pursuing the political course
that be did, and taking the test oath, lost the
respect of hts former friends and all decent

?-WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH YOU ?
This is the familiar question put to every invalid.
LT many cases the answer ls, "I don't know exactly,
but I don't feel well." Look at the countenance o
the man or woman who makes this reply, and you
will generally find that the eyes are dull and lustre?
less, the complexion sallow, the cheeks flaccid, and
the whole expression of the face dejected. Interr??
gale tho invalid more closely, and you will discover
tint constipation, the result of a disordered stomach
and a torpid liver, is at the bottom of the mischief.

GESTION.-"Weakness of the stomach" is the
source of more evils than were contained in Pando?

pitation of the heart and local pains innumerable,
are Hs direct consequences. It obscures the intel?
lect and gives birth to the most absurd and incohe?

renders persistent exertion next to impos sible. Yet
strange to say, indigestion is the most neglected of
