The Cold In the City.
Saturday was the coldest day of the yr ar.
The thermometer ats a. M. stood Ave degrees
below the freezing point, and had only re
turned to lt at 10 o'clock. Almost every poo1
of water about the streets was covered with a
thick crust of Ice, walch resisted the action of
tue sun until the day was far spent, and then
quickly congealed again as the sun's rays
were removed. Along the banks of the rivers
the salt waler also f roze into a thick shelf ol
Ice, extending lu some places for ten feet
from the shore. Through the marshes above
the Northeastern Railroad depot the falling
tide left numberless snow-white canopies,
some of them covering areas of many feet.
Yesterday, as indicated by the thermome?
ter, the weather moderated somewhat; but J
early In the morning there was even more ice
to be seen than on Saturday. Though the
thermometer has not lallen at any time so
low as on the 25th of December, 1870, when It
stood at twenty at eight A. M., yet this spell
of cold may, considering Its duration, be re?
garderas the most severe that Charleston has
experienced for thi rty-five years. The reports
brought by passengers on the South Carolina
Railroad yesterday alternoon Indicate that a
thaw bad commenced below Branchville, but J
that the Ice stood firm above that point. Tbe
following Is the range of the thermometer for
the past two days : December 28th -8 A. H.,
27; 10 A. M., 82; ?2 H., 35; 2 P. M, 39; 4 P. M.,

The Cold In Columbia.
[SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE KXWS ]
COLUMBIA., Sm.day Night, December 29.
Weare still enveloped In snow, and the
weather Is Intensely cold. Last night one
more unfortunate was found by the police
nearly frozen to death. Several narrow es?
capes are reporte ?. AU the railroad trains,
with the exception of the Greenville and Co?
lumbia and the South Carolina, have been a
long wa; behind time. The Southern and Atlan?
tic Telegraph Company had many miles or Une
between Branchville and Charleston broken
down, bnt they succeeded this morning,
about ten o'clock, In potting everything In
working order again. There has been a great
deal of amusemej|ktn and about the city to?
day in the, to us, rather novel exercise of
skating. Many sore bones attest the truth of
the old maxim, "Ne sutor ultra crepldam."
Columbians cannot skate well.
The politicians, like everybody else, seem
frozen np, and there are no new develpments
of any Interest.
The taxes are belngAaid in with reasonable
rapidity, and there la ifcconsf quent increase
of confidence and of comfort among the mer
chaabf^nd others who have made advances J
opon the credit of the State.
There ls a general disposition among the
people to place more relianoe upon Cardozo
than upon his predecessor, and to believe
that so far as bis Individual power goes the
pubUolunds will be honestly managed. It is
rumored that Attorney-General Melton and
JD. E. Chamberlain, whom he succeeded, are
about to form a law partnership. Qui Vivs.

Last Thursday night (says the Augusta
Chronicle and Sentinel) was one of the cold?
est nights ever felt In this latitude. Towards
dark the wind rose and blew a heavy cale all
night. The air was Icy cold, the mercury
went down towards zero, and everything
moist was frozen bard as a flint. About ten

Decembei- 25. j
'The ground ls covered with BLOW that com'
m eu ced falling last night about twelve o'clock,
and continued up lo to-day at twelve o'clock,
which le the heaviest BUOW we have had thia
winter. The flrat snow fell about two weeks
ago, when the land waa very dry and well
frozen, which continued several da} s without
melting; but, strange to Bay, did not leave
much moisture; but since then we have had a j
superabundance of rain, filling all the water |
courses that have been dry for months past.
Maoy mills have oeen stopped lor months
?ast for the want of a sufficiency of water to
eep them running, and many* springs and
wella were dry; but since then all have a suffi- J
All the grain crons sown during the fall
look well with but iew exceptions, where lt
le rather thin, owing to the dryness of the
laud, there not being a sufficiency of moisture
to bri OL? a full stand up. There have been more i
fat hogs slaughtered' the present winter than
have been since the war, as|many freedmen
have killed a sufficiency to do them the corn
In? year, and all have been put up In fine stale
of preservation, as the winter bas been very
favorable, none being the least Injured where
due diligence has been taken. I recollect lu
1829 a Kentukian by the name of Emory
brought Into this county two thousand fine
fat hogs, averaging over three hundred pounds
gros*, and offering them at two cents per
pound. Finding no purchaser at that price,
he concluded to have them slaughtered and
baconed up, giving the persona doing the j
same the offal, viz: the backbones, apare
ribs, heads, feet and leaf lard. The winter
being warm, In fact so mild that the cotton
stalks did not get killed below the surface of
the earth, and many put out the following
spring, the consequence waa Mr. Emory lost
all of his meat but a few of the sides.
I wrote to you some three years ago what
wonld benefit Edgefleid more than anything
else at the present lime, viz, a railroad run?
ning from aiken via Edgefield Village to
Ninety-six Depot on the Columbia and Green?
ville Road, crossing the Augusta and Colum?
bia Road at or near the Pine House Depot on
the latter road.. Not much baa been done,
only talk and the granting ot the charter by
Legislature since then. The other day
who should step in but Mr. E. Keese,
with book In hand, for subscription
to the said road, meeting with good success I
for the time he had been out, taking every
bouse indiscriminately on the route from the
Pine House to Edgefield village, and from
there to Ninety-six Depot, taking a width ol J
about ten miles all along the route. Mr. Keese
is a working mau, and ls getting many sub?
scribers lo this road, both white and colored,
as I saw many thousands of dollars on his I
book, many et the colored peoDle subscribing]
one hundred dollars, to be paid In work and
crosB lies. I think now the prospect fair to I
succeed. The people at Aiken should build
the road up to the Pine Bouse Depot, as lt j
would not cost much to do this. There would
be very lillie grading on this part of the road,
lt being very near level all the route.
There have been about sixteen gin-bouses
burnt In this county within ihe past six
months-about half by accident and hall by
incendiarism. With these buildings there bas
been a loss of at least two hundred and fitly [
bales of cottOD. Tne whole loss with gin
bosses, screws, gin-heads, wheat ians and cot?
ton will not fall short ot sixty thousand dol?
lars, and five thousand dollars will cover all
the Insurance. I ihlnk every planter should
Insure his gin-house with ten bales of cotton,
and not keep more than thia in the building
atone time during the cotton season, as a
planter told me tne other day while be WSB
ginning his cotton he came upon six matches
just as he was pulling the cotton apart feeding
his gin. Now perhaps If be had had a hired
laborer to gin for him he would not have de?
tected the matches lo his cotton; consequently
his gin-house and contents would have been
burnt, aa one match is generally sufficient to
do the mischief.
There ls not half the moving with the la?
borers that there was a few years ago, as
many are leasing land for five years, giving
say for thirty acres one bale ol colton weigh?
ing (our hundred lbs., fifty bushels of corn,
and five hundred Iba. of fodder, each year for
five years. This mode" of employing them I
think a great deal the best, as lt will cause
them to keep belter fencing and Improve the
place more permanently. SENEX.
SHOOTING AN OUTLA FF.
The Robeson Conj Rt doced to a Soli?
tary Survivor- Andrew Strong Shot
Through the Head, and Shot Dead
William Wilson the Man-?'he Body
Tuleen loLumbcrlon-Pu ly Identified
-96000 In Rewards Barntd
[From the wilmington Journal.]
One by one the band ol Robeson County
outlaws have dwindled down until there ie
now but one lelt of the entire formidable gang.
For some time past Andrew Strong and Ste?
phen Lowery have escaped the vengeance of j
the law, and have reigned unmolested over i
Scuffietown, but at length the former has been
killed, and Stephen Lowery ls the only one
left of the entire gang.
At Eureka, a small Biatlon en the Wilming?
ton, Charlotte and Rutherford Railroad, In the
heart ol the Scuffietown region, and about |
eighty miles from the city, there was a con?
siderable Christmas gathering of the clans of
the outlaws on Thursday. Steve Lowery was
absent, but Andrew Stroog waa lhere with a
number ol bis friends. About two o'clock ol
that day. while a number of negroes were In a j
store at the siaiiou, one of ibem stole a num?
ber of locks and secreted them In his pocket.
He was charged with the theft by a young
man by the name of William Wilson, a clerk ia
the store, but he denied having taken ibem.
Mr. Wilson then put his hund In the man's
coat pocket and drew forth the locke.
The crowd soon afterwards left the store.
About an hour after this Andrew Stroog,
who had evidently been drinking, came into
the store and ordered Mr. Wilson to leave the
county, swearing that If he did not he would
kill bim. The young man Informed h'.m that
he would do so, when Strong left the store.
About five o'clock be returned, more Intoxi?
cated than before, and repeated his command,
lolling Mr: Wilson that li he lound him there
at six o'clock the next morning he would cer?
tainly kill bim. After saying ibis, the outlaw
turned to leave the store, and, SB be did so,
Wilton raised a double-barrelled gun that waa
at hand and discharged one barrel at
the outlaw, planting eighteen buckshot in
his neck and head. Strong fell with scarce?
ly a groan, and expired at onoe. The
Tall of the outlaw at once spread con?
sternation and dismay throughout the group
of his dusky follower?, but no attempt was
made to Interfere wiih Mr. Wilson. Had
Sieve Lowery been there lt might have been
different; bu: be was absent, and no attempt
was made to rescue the body. Rhody Lowery,
the widow or Henry Berry Lowery, the de?
funct outlaw leader, and Bieter to Andrew
Strong, aent in ? deputation requesting that
the body might be delivered up to ber, but
this was of course relused, intelligence being
oouveyed to them, at the same lime, by Mr.
Wilson, that he would shoot the rtrst man that
dared to touch the body. Neverlhi lees, for lear
that a rescue might possibly be attempted, Mr.
Wilson and a number of other gentlemen hasti?
ly placed the body In a wuzon and conveyed it
to Lumberton, arriving at that lown about two
o'clock A. M. The body waa at once surren?
dered to Sheriff McMillan, and waa yesterday
tully identified, whereupon the Bheriff paid
over io the fortunate young man one thous?
and dollars, the reward offered by the county
for each of the outlaws, dead or alive. Be?
sides lbl?, ls five thousand dollars to be paid
by the Statt, as ihe reward offered by the
Governor, under authority ol' the Legislature,
which can be obtained on application. Mr.
Wilson ls quite a young man, but one or much
nerve and determination. He ls lrom the
western part ot the State, and has been clerk?
ing at Eureka for some lime past. The re?
wards which he obtains for the killing of the
outlaw will amount to quite a small lortune.
-The Southern Standard, of Beaufort, says:
"At Matthews' Bluff a meeting has been held
in relation to the division ol the county. Mr.
H. C. Smart made a statement that Senator
Smalls was in lavor of lt. This ls decked. He
ls opposed to the division."
THE CARNIVAL OF FIRE.
FURTHER DETAILS OF THE BURNING
OF BARNUM'S MENAGERIE.
The Fate of the Wild Ant mala-Their
Cond act-Those that were ttescued.
Toe New York papers come lo us laden
with the hideous detalla of the burning of
Barnum's Museum and Menagerie In that city
on Tuesday morning last. The World describes
the scene at tbe buming building, the action
of the men inside, and tbe animals, ?co., aa
Hardly had the alarm been given when
those who were attempting to free the quad?
rupeds in the menagerie were compelled to
beat a retreat, the flames following them with
lightning rapidity, while the Bmoke which
proceeded from the overheated and rotten
woodwork ot the basement was horribly sti?
fling. With the eight men who were in the
building came the largest of the two ele?
phants, the baby elephant and the dromedary.
The larger beast on reaching the air threw up
its trunk, gave a sort of mourning snort, and
started up Irving place at a swift gait, and
was not captured till lt hud reached Seven?
teenth street, when it was secured and taken
with the two other lucky animals to Barnum's
stable In Weet Thirtieth streer. As to the
other an?mala, the carn?vora and monkeys
were In all probability smothered before
being burned, as they cried but little. Tbe
giraffe, the other elephant and the camel did
not fare so well. Stupefied by the smoke and
paralyzed willi lear by the fire, they huddled
together as the flames reached them, and one
by one they fell into the fire, and for several
mloutea struggled fearfully against their fate.
Tne elephant showed signs of vitality ten min?
utes after the flames reached him, and aa the
smoke lilted, his huge carcass could be seen
to heave like that of a whale at sea. It look
the flames about a quarter of an bour lo com?
pletely envelop the eutire structure, and as
soon as the roof was reached everything
seemed to be lapped up.
As engine after engine came rattling to ihe
SDor. gradually more Plumberers became
aroused. Those who still remained wrapped
In slumber were finally called to sudden con?
sciousness by a strange, uneatthly sound
which, f r the moment, seemed bul the con
titillation of a grisly nightmare. Thia wild,
weird noise was the trumpeting of the two
elephants who were saved, Jeannette and
Gypsy, tor eo long a time stationed In Central
Park, where the Tittle one, Gypsy, used to be
such a perennial Joy to children. They had
escaped the flames, roaring and bellowing be?
hind them, and ran In their clumsy, long
reaching fashion out Into the street. When
near the corner of the block they were Joined
by one of their keepera, wno, not daring to
attempt leading them back the way they had
come, guided them up the avenue and
through Fifteenth street to Irving Place.
Here they were -picketed, and for some
Instants remained tranquil. Soon, however,
their trunks were raised Into the air, and
their curious screams frightened all listeners.
Their keeper left them, went towards the
burning building, and returned with a dog
which had beeu accustomed lo play about
them. The animal ran up to the two ele?
phants, leaping and wagging not aloue bis
tall, but the wnole hinder part of bis body.
Rubbing against the huge legs, which were
about the same size as bis o wu body, be gam?
bolled around them with great apparent glee
at again seeing bis playmates. Nor did the
elephants seem less delighted; their small,
keen eyes looked -kindly upon him, (heir feet
were moved cautiously, lest Home injury
should be unwittingly Inflicted, and every uow
and then their trunks would gracefully de?
scribe a long, sweeping circle and soli ly stroke
'the sides of the dog. Near them was teth?
ered the si ot; le camel, which had been
brought out from the fiery lurnace, and be?
fore long the three BurvhMng animals ol the
large menagerie were led away to a place
where the atmosphere was better suited io
their comfort iban was the cold, keen air of a
lu a conversation with the property-man of
th? circus, the writer asked: "What was the
first Intimation those in charge of the animals
had or the Ure ?" "Well, there are several
men who look care of the beasts, and about
four o'clock this morning the tamer, Lion
Charley we call him, who sleeps directly in
front of the Hons' cage, was awakened by an
awlul roaring. He raised himself up on his
elbow, and saw the Ilona wlrie awake, and one
ol them dashing against the bara of ihe cage
and shaking ih?m. 'Shut up,'anya he; '#hut
are you making all this nelse about ?' He was
just turning over to no io sleep again when
ne saw the dre coming out of the boiler-room.
So be Jumps up and culls the oiher men-t hey
were all in their shirts and drawers-and I hen
ran to tb.3 other end of the building. When
they got there they lound Camel Charley, the
one who bas charge ol these anlmala.andCooa
-he'd a darkey that lakes care ol the snakes,
and Bleeps every night on the top ol'the
cage where they're kepi-trying to put out the
dre, which by this time hud reached the gir?
affe's cage. While they were do'ng ihls, two
' went to work tearing dowi the burs so as to
let the animals loose. You can imagine how
much the fire had,gained when I tell you that
even the manes aud tails of the giraffes were
on Ure. Well, they got the bars down and
pei8tiaded one ol them to come out-To winy
he was, oue of the nicest, gentlest Utile fel?
lows mat ever was; you could lead bim all
over town with one end of a pocket-handker?
chief In his mouth. But Just as soon as he saw
ihe flames be wheeled right round and rushed
back into the cage, and lhere they bad to leave
him. It is curious, but all animals except ele?
phants are like horses, dre scares them so thut
they dou'tknow what i hey 're about, and li's Hie
hardest work lu the world to move them away.
Then the Ure ran ou to the cage of the happy
family, and all them were Jabbering and Jump?
ing and flying around inside, making a tre?
mendous row. You see, the cages were
made of pine wood, and ihe Hirnes rushed
over them In an Instant. I was ou i he ground
wllbln ten minutes after the first alarm was
sounded, and aided to the best ol my ability
to rescue the animals, but the building
burned too quickly for us." "Would you have
let the lions uud tigera loose ia the streets."
"Cerialuly, though I don't know about the
tigers, they are ao treacherous mal you eau
never tell what they will do. AB to the lions,
you know we have nels ready to catch them
In as they come ont of the caire, so we should
have had no trouble with them. But we bad
not lime enough to do anything, and some of
uj had to run for lt pretty hard to save our?
ANOTHER NEW YORK FIRE.
Rescue or Sixty Girls from the Flames.
The Ure on Centre street, New York, on
Tuesday evening, which destroyed the six
story brick building occupied by the New
York Newspaper Printing Company and
other?, lt is etated, originated by the acci?
dental Ignition o? a benzine eau on the third
floor, used for Job and newspaper printing.
The flames spread so rapidly that the em?
ployees of the establishment were unable to
save their personal property, and it is asserted
that several persons lost their lives.
The filth and sixth floors are occupied by
Anderson, Archer & Co. as a bookbindery.
Un these floors there were at work some six?
ty girls, who were ignorant ot the existence
ol Hie Ure until they were almost surrounded
bv the flames. Two young men from one of
the lower floorB, who were aware of the peri?
lous position ot the girls, ventured, at the
risk of their own lives, to rush up the stairs
and give ihe alarm. Almost simultaneously
with their alarm the fire appeared through the
cracks ol the fourth-story floor, un<! in an in?
stant everything and everybody was thrown
into the greatest excitement. Women and
girls rushed through the building screaming
fearfully, while others became unconscious
and swooned away. The first impulse of the
terror-stricken women was to rush down the
stairway, but scarcely had they descended a
dozen steps, bet?re they were torced back by
volumes of thick smoke. Those who were
down on the lower steps attempted to turn
back, but behind ihem was an army of em?
ployees, who, In their haste to escape, threw
themselves bodily down ihe Blairs, and thus
compelled ihose beneath them to rush
HEADLONG THROUGH THE SMOKE
or remain in their perilous position to be
roasted alive. Some who were more daring
risked the only chance placed beiore them,
and, covering their faces with their aprons,
rushed ihrough the smoky passage-way, and
finally reached the stairway almost suffocated.
As they arrived at the third floor (be flames
could be seen hissing through the crevices of
the doora and wall?. The girls who bad gone
thus lar in their eagerness to escape from the
flame?, threw themselves down the ttairwar,
alighting all in a heap at the bottom. At thia
plaoe men were siationed, who, as soon as
the affrighted girls landed on the second floor,
picked them almost bodily In their arma and
rushed down the Blalrvay to the Btreet.
Many of them had Hinted awav. The
flames had by thia lime enveloped the third,
fourth and a pm of the filth floor. The et air wa v.
which was believed to bi the only means of
escapp, was a sheet ol fir*, and the remaining
twenty-two girls, who were known tobe in
Bide the building, wereigiven up lor lost.
While some of the girls escaped In the man?
ner already mentioned, th? remaining pori lon,
who were compelled to Urrn back, rushed to
the fifi h and sixth floors and attempted to
reach the roof. This was found to be Impossi?
ble, and many of them gave up in despair and
sar, down upon their stool? awaiting iheir ter?
rible doom; others rushed from window to
window lrantically crying] for help, while the
rest passed the short ilmeleft them In prayer.
Every moment added td their danger, and
inch by inch the Are approached nearer to
them. Just as the flames were within a few
feet of them, one ot the men, named John
Brandt, who was on the eime floor,
CRIED IN" A LC ID VOICE,
"Girls, save yourselves; I have fixed the
fire escape." The sentence gave hope to the
poor victims, and simultaneously with the ut?
terance of ibe last word: a rush was made,
audio a lew seconds th rei girls were already
clambetlng down the Iron ladder., Many of
them were afraid to risk tbtdr lives on the rick?
ety concern, and seemed disinclined to make
any effort, but as they casta backward look at
Ihe flames they took courage and lollowed the
others. Those who were most afraid John
Brandt assisted down as bent he could, and
when they were safe he ascended for the oth?
ers. When he last went up six were on the
floor, three of whom cima down with bim.
He then started for the others, but the flames
from one of the other floors burst our, and be
was compelled to turn back. What became of
the three remaining girl! Is not known,'brit
they are no doubt lost. Who ihey were ls not
yet known, but lt ls believed lhat Jenny
stewart, aged twenty year?, la one of them, as
she had not returned home up to a late hour
last night. A number of the men and girls
were more or leas Injured, the majority of
whom tell from the fire escape In their hurry
to save themselves.

A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF TBE TROUBLE
AND ITS ORIGIN.
The Scene of Oprro Hons-The Wild
Vantage-Ground oirthe Itedeklna.
[Prom tbe Oregon Herald.]
It Ia possible tbat very erroneous Impres?
sions may get abroad In regard to the recent
trouble with the Modoo lud?aos in this State,
and such Impressions maj baye the tendency
to retard Immigration. With a view to cor?
rect any such false notions, it may be proper
to slate that the disturbances occurred upon
the extreme southeastern frontier ol Oregon,
very remote from the more populous portions
of the State, where the country is very sparse?
ly occupied by settlers. This outbreak la ex?
ceptional, altogether remarkable, and can
acarcely ever be repealed. It has been at?
tended with the killing of quite a number of
hardy pioneers, probably some twelve or fif?
teen excellent men, wiose, loss must be
severely fell by those lofuut settlements; but
lt does not In any degree affect the peace and
food order of the other portions of the State,
he disturbance-war lt cannot properly
be called-waa entirely local, affecting only
the Link Biver and Klamalh Lake region.
The origin of the trou be, as we understand
lt, ls about as follows: A region of country in
the southeast part ef tl ie State, called the
Klamath reservation, had. been assigned by
the government to the occupancy of the Mo
doc Indians. Here the government bad made
liberal provision for the accommodation of
the Indians, looking, of course, to their civil?
ization and .to the adoption by them of hab?
ita ot industry. The Moilocs, it seems, were
averse to going on to the reservation, prefer?
ring the idle, vagabond life which they had
been accustomed to lead. Tr.ev were on
friendly terms wllh the few settlers In that
region, and no serious trouble was appre?
hended from them; still lt was desirable that
they should be made to occupy the reserva?
tion assigned to them. Their reluctance was
borne with for a considerable time, until
finally Imperative orders came from Washing?
ton that the savages must be taken to their
reservation by force. If no other means would
suffice, and guarded there. Persuasion was
used, but without avail. Finally, a company
of United States troops was ordered to the
camp ot Scar-faced Charley, a chief of the
tribe, wltb directions to remove him und his
people forcibly ll they refused to go peace?
ably. And here, lt seems to us. without in?
tending any cupi ions criticism of any?
body, a serious mlsialce was made. Ihe
troops .from Fort Elamath, ordered to
thia duly, were entirely too few In
number to carry out the order, if foree should
be required. But it was supposed, doubtless,
that the Indians wculd not be BO mad and
reckless BB to attempt for Mole resistance. They
did, however, resist. When the officer In
command, with bis troops, came to Charley's
camp, he first tried peisuaelon; and finally,
when ihe Indians saw there was no other al?
ternative but to fight or comply, they madly
and foolishly decided to tight. A skirmish en?
sued, in which some Indians were killed, and
they, Indian-like, comm?meed lo massacre the
unsuspecting ?nd defen celess settlers, whose
Isolated habitations favored (he Indian pur?
pose. Of course ihe warfare ls of short dura?
tion. Troops from ot he : stations were quick?
ly massed In sufficient numbers lo protect the
settlements, and the settlers themselves,
aided from other parts rf the country, were
quite compeient to their own protection. The
Indians, quick to strlek, were able, however,
to perpetrate their murders upon unsuspect?
ing families before they could be arrested.
The result will be that the Indians will now
be forced upon their reservation and com?
pelled to stay there, under an adequate guard
of government troops. Tula will be very
The following ls a description of the lava
bed country, and which 1B likely lo be the
seen? of the Modoc opel al lons: It ls located
on the som hem ghi-i,of Tole Lake, and ls
situated wholly in Ced?rnla, just south ot the
Oregon boundary line", ?ontaming an area of
ten miles square, all cut upwiih Usantes and
deep gulches, and about ding wit h large caves,
the largest cave being that known as Ben
Wright's cave, said to contain Alteen acres of
open space under ground, to which theie la a
good spring and many openings by which a
j man can crawl throngi, the malu entrance
being about tbe Bizi c t a common window,
i The gulches and crevices range from a few
I feet to one hundred feet lu width, and many
of them one hundred feet deep. The Indians
can travel all through this lava oouuiry ny
trails known only to themselves, and stand on
bluffs over a person one hundred feet beneath,
where If. would require a long Journey to go to
them. In this lava bt d are also small flats
luxuriant with bunch grasB, where cattle And
great trouble In reacting by long, circui?
tous travel over rouich lava rock>, while
on Ihe outskirts cf the lava bed
may continually be fo ind a large amount
ot stock, the cattle range being unsur?
passed. The Indians c; .n see every one coin?
ing in Ave miles off wltliout themselves being
Been. They can also let their pursuers come
within a few feet of tho bluff and shoot down,
retiring if necessary lo oilier similar bluffs;
As to food, the Indians san find all they want
ot callie in and around ihe lava bed, und can
also go om lo the lake in canofs lo fish or
shoot game. Toe only thing they now lack
for a long alege will be ammunition for their
guns; but they will make arrows Instead.
Those pursuing will bMVe to follow the In?
dians on loot, and in Journeying through these
gullies and crevices tu hunt them must ex?
pect to find the Modccs on the high bluffs
above them on every point, or making their
way through concealed passages to secure
hiding placea, lt will require the greatest
cunning and strategy to capture or extermi?

standing their Insignificant numbers.
THE DANCE OF TBE LUNATICS.
A Qucrr En erialnment.
[From the Columbia Huton.]
Thursday night the first of the hops for the
season yearly luangurated by Dr. J. F. Ensor,
superintendent ot the Slate Lunatic Asylum,
was given. The lnclemeucy ot the weather
kept away many lu vi ted guests, yet there
were enough present to make an agr?able
party. The enjoyment of the occasion was
uninterrupted. The a uslc was furnished by
the Institution. Seventy-live of the patients
were present, and entered into the festivities
with much zeal; not a word or action by them
was out of place, and the accuracy of their
movements lu going through the various
figures or the dance, surprised all. Many of
tnem walized well, ami they all appeared to
view the occasion with great relier and satis?
faction. The promptness and delicacy which
characterized their selection of partners, and
the politeness of them towards each other, as
well aa towards those with whom they came
in contact, might be et vied by circles claiming
more reaaon, and was an endorsement of the
patient care and bani toll of the officers In
charge at the Asylum, under every difficulty,
for the benefit of ibelr suffering leilow-belngs.
The dancing waa kept up to a reasonable hour,

buting much towards breaking the monotony
of the lives ot the patlouts. Other similar oc?
casions are to iollow at convenient and stated
times, when cards ol Invltailon-whlch the

THE FLOODS IN GEORGIA.
j Rlae of the Blowah, Oostecauia and
Coota Rivera-Large Tracts of Conn?
try Submerged-The Railroads Wash?
ed Away-Destruction ?f Property.
[Correspondence of tne Atlanta Herald.]
KINOSTON, December 2*.
Your readers havetut little Idea of the ex?
tent and destrucllveneas of the late flood In
Etowah and the Oostenauia gtad Goo ea rivers,
and more especially of Euharlle and other
creeks flowing luto these rivers. For five
days previous to the hard rain on Mo-day
night lt rained unceasingly, and on Monday
lt simply poured In torrents.
Here, at Kingston, the small creek that j
flows by this place rose so rapidly that per?
sons occupying the railroad shanties bad to
swim for their lives. Jn one Instance, I am
told, a little boy woke up and said to his
father that the bed was wet, and the father,
on reaching out his band, struck lt against a
floating plank, which proved to be part ol the
floor. He at once jumped up and waded om
neck deep, with his children. Mr. P. O. Har?
ris had fifteen bales of cotton floated from his
gin house, and barely had time to save his
mules and other stock from drowning.
The Borne Railroad was washed np in
several places, and foi five days no trains
could pass. The Selma, Rome and Dalton
Road baa been literally washed up for miles,
and I learn from General Pennington that In
placea where water was never known before
that lt was eight feet deep. At Rock man the
damage was considerable. The banks of tbe
Etowah are so high and the stream ls so
rapid that but little damage, li any, was
done to farms on ibis river, except near
I Rome, and there they wore simply over?
flowed by back water, which benefits rather
than injures. The Borne Boad bas been re?
paired, and trains are now running, and also
Irom Rome lo Dalton; but on tbe line towards
Selma the damage will not be repaired
(or several days. If the Oostenauia had risen
as rapidly as the Etowah, the damage to Borne
would have been heavy; but as lt ls, there
waa but little barm done, except to make an
everlasting quantity of mud.
