-A tale-of horror is told, by the Memphis
Avalanche of last Monday. It says that Beck,
the murderer' of Mr. and Mrs. Goode, on
Favorite Island, about two months since, was
taken from the Austin, Miss., Jail, on Wednes?
day morning, by a large number of men who
had gathered lor the purpose, carried down to
the riveras edge,- and, by the waning light of
the moon, rowed across to a sandbar on the
Arkansas shore, and there, under'the long
shadows of the trees, the crowd gathered
around their victim, and, as the gray streaks
ot dawn appeared, a grave was scooped out of
the sand by.aiot.of.men who appeared, at
that moment, more; hice" demons than human
beings. Binding ' the wretch's hail d's and feet
together, they threw lUmTnto. the hole. Two
or three, of the stout?^i .s^?d upon hts body
while the hole was being filled np, lifting their ,
feet every now and--then to keep on-a level
wltlTthe rising sand. As the sand went in,
these men actually danced upon the smother?
ing- victim beneath, and the whole crowd
broke out in an unearthly song. At sunrise,
the lynchers hurried to their skiffs and disap?
peared np and down the river along the Mis?
? Those Conto anding Cablea.
The ocean cables-all honor Lo them-are
one of the marvels of the age. . An electric
spark, traversing'the slender wires, which
stretch from the Old -World to the New,
brings rival Continents within speaking dis?
tance, and allows New York to hear, aa it
were, the dull echoes from the banks of the
Moselle and Rhine. And yet the ocean
. cables as they are now used, and the whole
telegraphic system, corrupt, our language,
confuse our ideas; and make- onr knowledge
of the ?vente of the. day as jerky and scrap?
py a3 the click-clack of a magnetic battery.
There is no even and continuous stream of
information. From the telegraphic alpha?
bet, the reading public are expected to form
plain words and intelligible phrases. As
I well might one-in the South at least-un
j dertake to interpret a cuneiform Inscription,
or to solve the hieroglyphic riddle of a two
thousand year old mummy.
The almighty dollar, through the tele?
graph, plays havoc with the purity of lan?
guage. To the "English" tongue, and the
"American" tongue, is added the "telegra?
phic" tongue-a tongue in which* eminent
men are "interviewed," houses are "bur
"glarized," trains and vessels "collide," and
some unfortunate "suicided," either "smorn
"ing" or "sevening." As every word i3 paid
for, the press reporters exert all their inge?
nuity to moke one word take the place of a
half dozen. They might strip their dis?
patches of U3eles3 adjectives, and rhetorical
flowere, and use compact nervous English.
-But this would take time, and the worried
journalists, of small calibre, seek refuge in
the bastard phrase-words of which an exam?
ple has been given. They have the excuse
that newspaper proprietors do not want to
pay for ten words when five will do, and the
! slang dictionary becomes every day larger
and more disgusting.
In - ordinary times, the work of the wires
is tolerably satisfactory. The market re?
ports cannot very well go wrong, and the
quick-travelling mails fill op the gaps in the
daily dispatches. But in days like these,
in times of wars and rumors of wars, the
despairing journalist and confounded public
are tempted to regret an earlier period when
news arrived only once a week, and one
event could be well ? digested before it was
pushed aside .hy another. Then, ..carefully
written and comprehensive letters explained.'
the condition of domestic and foreign affairs,
and side by side with the accomplished fact,
came the explanation of its canse and a dis?
cussion of its probable result. The public
was not always on the tenter-hooks of anx?
iety. Between the receipt of the.one mail
and the.arrival of the next, there was ample
time for cogitation ; there was the opportu?
nity of overcoming the gloom of disaster
and the wild joy of victory. Nous avons
chang? tout cela ! A.battle take3 place in
Europe, and the fact is known before the
smoke drifts from the field of carnage. And
so it ls with every important event, at home
. and abroad. The papers print each morn?
ing a condensed account of the history of
the world OD the previous day. The fall of
empires, or a rise in stocks, is done up in a
sentence, or disposed of in a paragraph.
No one will complain of receiving new3 a
week, or a month, earlier than it was re?
ceived in the coaching-times. That is not
the trouble. Where toe telegraph confounds
us is, in its omissions of necessary facts, in
Us disconnected statements, in its contradic?
tory reports. Who can tell, for instance,
what the French and German armies have
been about during the last week ? There is
a bushel basket of dispatches, and we
are little wiser at the last than at the first.
Both of the belligerent governments exercise
a strict surveillance over the wires. Abso?
lutely trustworthy information is difficult, if
not impossible, to obtain. The public, how?
ever, demand the news, and they get it after
a fashion. A correspondent" in London hears
that a correspondent in Berlin has received
a private letter from the vicinity of Metz, in
which it is stated that the Prussiaus have
"whipped 'em again." This is sent with hot
haste to New York. Another correspondent
learns from a correspondent at Pari3 that
the French have driven the Germans into
the sea. And this," likewise, is dispatched
over the wires. In the morning the unfor
fortunate public have the two accounts
before them. No doubt, one is as truthful as
the other. Which is to believed ? You pay
your money and you take your choice.
Armies run to and fro ; hundreds of thous?
ands of men are moved with miraculous
rapidity ; whole corps are destroyed one day
to turu up unharmed the next. And when
there is a scrap of truth, it is so bald and
bare that no mortal man can make head or
tail of it. We caunot tell, as yet, what
were the circumstances of the battle at
Hageuau or Woerth. The Prussians were
victorious-that is all we know. Only now
?ire we receiving the particulars of that little
affair at Saarbr?cken, where the lnitrail.etns j
are said to have played havoc with the op-1
posing battailous. And the Southern papers j
are wor?e Ou that: their big Northern broth

have news which will be.as trustworthy as it
is prompt-then may. we expect , that the
summary of telegraphic news, printedevery
day, will cover the whole held of events,- and
make them clear to an ordinarily intelligent
observer. Men there'are who'can do the
work. The Washington correspondent of
a New York daily keeps lt thoroughly in?
formed of all that is going on in the Federal
capital. As much may yet be dorie for Ber?
lin arid Paris'and London.. Indeed, we hope

Short Cotton on the Sea Islands..: .
A number of sea island planters pitched,
last season, a crop of short cotton, enter?
taining the idea that this variety, by rea?
son of its earlier maturity and lesser cost
of cultiv?tion, would be mor?'certa?nly pro?
fitable than ordinary 1 sea" islands." The
finest kinds of short cotton were chosen
for the experiment, and it i3 expected
that a considerable quantity of the
short staple, grown upon' the sea is?
lands, will soou come into the market.
This will, of course, increase the aggregate
yield of the short cotton, and will propor?
tionately decrease the crop of long cotton.
The area planted in short cotton, and the
decreased area of long cotton, are shown in
the following tables, which have been care?
fully prepared by a sea toland planter:

W ADM ALA w, fpartial re?
turns-from 20 planters) 935 G50
JOHNS'S, (partial returns
irom 9 planters,). 480 269
This shows that in the most favored spots
the quantity of long cotton planted, as com?
pared with short cotton, stands in the pro?
portion of four to three. The decreased area
in long cotton ls shown in the following
1?C9. 1870. DECREASE.

This, to many, will be a startliug result.
It is known positively that the acreage of
long cotton, in a small district, is 4329 less
than last year, and this only approximately
indicates the falling orv of the sea island
crop Of 1870.
Colonel Hoyt for the State Senate.
Colonel James A. Hoyt, of Anderson, in
reply to the request of some influential citi?
zens that he would aHow his name to be put
in nomination for the State Senate, says that
it would not become him to forestall the ex?
pression of popular opinion by consenting to
become a candidate in advance of the action
of the whole county. He advises that the
convention to be held ou September 5 nomi?
nate a full Reform ticket, and is more than
wiUiug to abide by its decision in the choice
Anderson cannot have a better represen?
tative of her interests than she would lind in
the person of Colonel Hoyt, and no one
would work more honestly for the good of
the whole State. Colonel Hoyt was a gal?
lant soldier, and rose, "from the ranks" we
believe, to the command of a regiment. He
is liberal in his opinions and progressive in
hi3 policy, and has a staunch spirit and
well-balanced mind, which cause him to be
respected and trusted wherever he i3 known.
The Lund Ring.
We priut to-day a card from ex-Land Com?
missioner Leslie, who reiterates his state?
ment that he never bought any land, a3 land
commissioner, upon his owu authority, aud
that he was land commissioner only in name.
It i3 a noteworthy fact that Senator Leslie
does not deny that there have been gros3
frauds in the management of the Land Com?
mission. He declares his own iunocence,
without exonerating the Advisory Board,
consisting of Scott, Chamberlain A Co. But
Senator Leslie knows the whole truth about
the Land Ring, and if he admits his "re?
sponsibility to the people," he owes it to
them to make a clean breast of the whole
business. Nothing less than the conviction
of the real culprits will convince the public
that Mr. Leslie is guiltless.
What ls Thought of Judge Orr at
The Anderson Intelligencer, noticing the
recently published letter of Judge Orr upon
the political situation, says :
"We are not surprised at thia course of
Judge Orr's, as we have known for some
weeks that he contemplated Its adoption. It.
can only be regretted, however, for his own
sake, as Ms old friends and supporters in this
section mil not follow his advice, and the Radi?
cal party will not be strengthened, nor the Re
formparty weakened by this accession openly
to Scott's supporters. Judge Orr has been
virtually connected with the Radical party for
some time, and this letter is simply an open
declaration of his proclivities."
The word3 which we have italicized agree
! perfectly with the tenor of the private advices
received by THB NEWS from Anderson
THAT "little wonder" in American joar
1 ualism, the New York Baili/ News, bas at*

As ten years have now elapsed since we firs; in?

Into a lengthy description of their merits, Ac.
There ls hardly a elty or town of any note in the
countrv into which they have not found their
way. The reason of this widespread popularity
and dally increasing demand ls owing entirely to
their peculiar excellence and intrinsic worth.
Being determined to make them the Standard Ex?
tracts of the day, we have still further Improved
their quality, and now we firmly and honestly be?
lieve that they stand without a rivaL Our Vanilla
Extract cannot be surpassed for richness and
delicacy of flavor. It ls a strictly pure and high
Iv concentrated Extract of Vanilla B?ans. in
short, we think it the best that LS made at least,
this ls the decision of the best judges In ; coun?

many of the so-called Flavoring Extracts of the

undeserving of the name.
