THE ?RANE-YERG ER TRAGEDY.
Voil Partie ulara _ Origin of Ute DUB?
ewlty-B/ridence before the Coroner's
Our Mississippi exchanges bring us the
eh coking details of the encounter in which
Coronel E. M. Yerger, of Jackson, Mississippi,
killed Colonel sod Acting Mayor Joseph O.
Crane, of (hst city. The trouble originated in
't valuable piano belonging to Yerger baring
been advertised for sale under a distress war
Tani for taxes. Colonel Crsne had caused this
to bs done in his official capacity, and accord?
ing to law. Of ocoorrenoes preceding tbs
tragedy the Jackson Clarion of Thursday says:
When this property was attached, E. M.
Yerger waa in Memphis. On bis return Tues?
day morning he sent several messages to Colo?
nel Crane, the purport of which was sn invita?
tion to meet bim on the street, divested of his
? official character, tn order to gire him satis?
faction for what be esteemed to be sn affront.
' We sro informed that Dr. Harrington, who,
after repasted solicitarloa, boro one of these
eommunications, finally consented to do so,
with a purpose in his mind, when explaining to
him the intent of Yerger, to advise bim not to
Si upon the street, and that he did so, stating
at Yerger was armed, and that his passions
were greatly intensified by liquor. Unfortu?
nately there ia no linn? witness of this fact.
But it is the statement of Dr. Harrington, who
ls a truthful, kind-hearted, generous man
of peace, and would be the last person on earth
to produce dissension, sad lbs first to save a
' fellow mortal from the horrors of snob s death
as srertook IBS deceased. Chief of Police
- Isl er, ss will be seen tey his testimony, gave the
tame advice which Dr. Harrington bad given;
but un tor I un at ely rt was not taken. Strange
en c ugh tho decease J did not, as a conservator
of tbs' peace, order the arrest of Yerger, not?
withstanding his belligerent message, from the
-street, nor did he prepare himself with ?rms
for a deadly encounter, nor still did he keep
oat of harm's way. The cause ol his failure to
adopt. Bom? precautionary measure is explained
'Hi tbs testimony of Isler. A short time before
tbs fatal meeting, he was on President-street
?examining a sidewalk which bsd been reported
to him to bs in a condition to need repairs.
! The pasties met on the corner of State and
Soon after the tragedy, Colonel Yerger was
. arrested, and the case wis investigated before
a coroners jory. The subjoined 6 tate men's,
aviar on oath, contain ' toe material facts

-Went to the door. Yerger and Crane were
standing ia trent ot W. J? Brown's grocery
Store. Yerger was abusing Crane, using very
bard lan image ; Bsid Crane had tabeo advan?
tage of his absence. Yerger was sUnding with
bis bends on bis breast under bis cost. Crane
..Jd be bad sot taken advantage of him, he bad
* waited a reasonable time. Yerger said: "I want
to tell joe one thin?, 700 sro a God damned
'cowardly puppy." Crane said : "J do not want J
ito hare anything to do with you. except offi?
cially," aaa wi th a gesture of his band, started
to walk oft Yerger struck hm kano rudely
-sind said :. "Take your damned band ont of my
face." . Yerger. theo used other bard language,
when Crane again said : "I do not want shy
thing to do with voa, Colonel Yerger, except
officially," and turned ind started off. Yerger
"caughtbold of bis arm, gave bun s shove and
said : "Go. yon dim ned dog." Crane strack
back with the small cace be carried, with tbe
.small end. striking Yerger on tho neck; the
sane is not large enough to inflict injury on
-anything. When Crane struck Yerger hiB
(Crane's) hat fell down over his tsoe; Verger
immediately struck bim with a knife-thinks
'be Struck Crans in the back or side, then put
-his arm around Crane and was trying to oat
him in the back; abont the small part of the
back. Saw that Yerger. was going to cat him
all to p?cese; did not want to see it done, so
went back into the bank.
Hams Barksdale, sworn: Came ont of J
Clarion office and met Colonel Crane; passed
bim with usual salutations, and weat into
Green's Bink; while there beard some one say,
"**Yoa are a damned puppy;" ran ont with Mr.
Thomas Green and George Green; saw Colonel
"Crane and E. M. Yerger standing near esc 1
other. Colonel Crane said, "Yon sro drunk
and. had better go home." Mr. Yerger said,
*'I am not drunk, and want to tell yon that
you are a damned pappy." Colonel Crane said,
"I don't care for you, and will not have soy
thing to do with yon." Yerger said, ' I tele
gr J ohed to you not to take advantage of me
waring my absence," st the same tune shaking
bis floger, don't know which hand, in Crane's
face. Grane, said, "I did not take advan?
tage Of you." and made a gestare with
bis band. Yerger said, "Take your hand
oat. of ray lace, you damned coward
nan of- a bitch," at the same
striking' Crane's hand down. Crane
.1 don't know jon and don't wont to hare
Eta do with yoa, exoepl officially.'' At
witness noticed that Mr. Yerger had
his right hand in bia bosom. Colonel Crane
turned hus back to Hr. Yerger and took one
?up street. Mr. Yerger poshed him and
'.Gio, you damned dog." Colon? 1 Crace
wheeled round and struck Colonel Yerger with
a walking suok; they then conched, and Mr.
Y-?rger arew a knife and commenced cutting
dione! Grane. Mr. Crane caught Mr. Verger's
arm and held it awhile : they were still strug?
gling. Mr. Yerger jerked bis arm away and

Colonel Crane backed mto Brown's store ; the
pam es straggled jost inside or the door. Wit?

or, "what did yon strike me for." Witness

A eorrespon dent in Pfendletoa Benia US.under
date of Jone 13, the following: interesting letter:
Cotton has improved, bot the Btand is very
bad. Corn bas been planted where the cotton
died, and those who bad seed have replanted
cotton, which is jost coming up. Tho weed ie
backward fully three to four weeks. Corn looks
weD. The wheat is now being harvested, and
ls t enexsjly free from mst. The oats are in?
diff?rent. We have frequent rains, and gar
dans aro very good. Negroes working mode?
rately well, but negro-like, they do as little as
possible, and even when receiving wages out of
the crop, the incentive is loo remote to alter
their lazv habits.
AB to the labor cruestion, negroes are the best
we can have. Where lands are cboap labor
must be high, and after all it is a question of
fertility. Labor will flow whore it can earn the
highest wages. Emigration will flow in the
direction ot the Northwest. Those that come
from Germany to America have withoot ex?
ception relatives that have preceded them, and
they will shape their course accordingly. Our
salvation is in the increase of fertility. It is
an affdr of time. Gtuno aa used will not do
it. If we were to uso the guano to enrich the
land instead of for one crop, and that cotton,
we should, in time, be prosperous. Cotton has
impoverished .ur lands and the State. If cot
ton declines in price* we shall bare exhausted
(andr which will not pay the expense? of culti?
vation. We must after -our whole system, or
the Maj Flower and Cromwell breed, as disa?
greeable aa they are, will crowd ns ont. They
are putting their stamp upon this whole conti?

that is science, which io the end will insure

ABE IOU DTBFEPTIO,
Nervous, jaundiced, low spirited, weak, or are you
sick and don't know what ails you; then try Planta?
tion Bitters and our word for lt, it will cure you.
What charms can he find in that fool-seen ted
room, by that dusty table, cutting and dealing those
dusty cards, niling himself with poison, tainting hit
breath, ruining his mind, undermining his constiti
hon, planting seeds of diseve, squandering hit
money, clouded with smoke, tired with excitement.
Is this happiness ? is thia life ? Ia this our misti?n?
Oh I I am so tired, do come home.
Thia delicious cordial and One tonic is now hailed
by thousands ss the great health giver and re?
storer. Resolve io buy a bottle, ind don't sleep on

when a man yon know rails on a girl you don't know,
or one you do. What if there la kissing behind the
door, in tunnels, and when the night is dark at the
vestibule of the 'burch, or even ever the gate. Would
you not do the same thing if tho chance wot offered !
A WINE CLASS FULL
Of Plantation Bitten, taken three times a day, before
each meil, will make the name of life again burn
brightly, and ?lumlnate a once wretched existence.
For ladlee lt is an elegant and gentle stimulant just
such as they require.
I WENT TO THE LAND OE STEAL? HABITS.
I wanted to hand several "brickb" down to pos?

land girl tor a wi'e, I could raise more children, grow
more onions, sain more eels, sing more psalms,
knowmoieoi what was going on m the neighbor?
hood, hear more Brandal sleep lesa nights, have
more relatives, eat more beana, love myself and hate
others more, and get more out of a dollar, than any
other rori of woman in thip happy country so-called.

AND HE HAD A ?TTMALE CHILD,
Whose name was Heia Brightwater, and who was
twenty-nine years old; who wore red stockings, red
garters, metal tipped shoes, green spectacles, and
the prettiest red hair the world ever set eyes on or
into. Hexa, a true New Eogland gal, chewed wads of |
pine gum, and sweetened ber broth with onions.
Hexa wasn't so much handsomer than a doU as to
make the doll faint but ahe was intelligent; in fact, in?
telligence waa her best hold bnt one; the was great
on making baby garments, and had ber bucks full,
packed away, that sbe might bo roady as willing

JAMES UABbH, EtsQ.,
No. 153 Weet Flret-street Now York, says he
has three children.' The first two are weak and
puny, his wile having been unable to nurse or
attend them; but she has taken Plantation Bit?
ters for the last ten years, and has a child now 18
months old, which she has nursed and reared ber
self, and both are beatty and well. Plantation Bit?
ters is invaluable to mothers.
VALTER, KT BOT,
Here comee a man who was once rich. He had
Meide, and money, and a loving family, and posi?
tion, and influence, and self-respect, and integrity,
and a future of usefulness before him. But, my
boy, be don't look Like lt now. He was elected to an
important offl.ee. He forgot the lessons his good
mother taught him, and was asked by designing
pontHsns to sell bis vote to a patti' of swindlers; Le
:ould not for tho life of him give articulation to that* |
little word, and so bo fell.
HOW OFTEN DO WE HEAR THE COMPLAINT,
Prom mother and fa thor, that the son or daughter ie
lot well; that they have no appetite; that they feel
anguid ; that the bead aches all the time; nat they
ire growing thin and feeble, and that they have no
ile nor energy loft And tho questions aro often
islied, What shall I do for them ? What shall I give
hem? Our answer is, let them try Plantation Bit
ora moderately, three times a day, and our word
or it they will recover.
AND HEBE VAL TEE, IS A TOUNG MAN,

ducation, intelligence, friends, ambition, and ia

iy mixing with its people Be has ambition and
he same fie'd iu which to wm honor, fame and dis
inchon, as had Franklin, FultoD, Mors??, and a host
if others. Hois naturally snort, but, Tarter, my
ry, oe he meets us do you see the excess ofmois
ure iu hie eye. thc little puffy ridge ander lt the
gradual turning of the beautiful corners of the
nouth, his mother so loved to kiss. These, my boy,
