itolfe, an inoffensive man, aged thirty
live years, was murdered, on Sunday
morning, in thc Williams House, in ?
Falmouth, by Eben Williams, aged1
twenty-one years, who shot him :
through the hear! with a rifle, and
then cut oft* his head with an axe.
Williams was an imbecile, but being
supposed harmless, was allowed to
occupy the house with Rolfe, who
.vas a pauper, as his servant. Wil?
liams went to the house ol* his guard?
ian in thc afternoon, and stated glee?
fully what he had done. The body
was found laid out, as it' for burial,
and the head in a pail of water.
A Hartford "ann.) woman is said
to have whipp 1 her little son nearly
to death, last u - k, because he played
truant; and w' n. he was lying sense?
less, flogged ano.her son in tho most
brutal manner for tho same offence.
Gen. Sickles to t!i<- Freedmen.
Gen. Sickles, having ben sere?
naded in Ctrurlestou bj-the colored
people, addressed them ns follows:
. My friends. 1 thanh yon for yon
visit. Although unexpected, it is
nunc tuc loss gratifying, lt is your
privilege, not minc, ii? take part as a
partisan in the political action of tho
day. My duty is to see that every
citizen of North aud South Carolina
lias a full ain; fuir opportunity to
vote as his judgment and consett nee
may dictate. This duty I shall en?
deavor to perform. Thc colored race
in this country have pained just
praise for their admirable conduct
during the war and pending the re?
cent agitation ol' their civil and po?
litical enfranchisement, in my de -;
partment, 1 can truly bear testimony I
to your patient forbearance. When
sorely provoked to retaliate by cruel
acts of violence and humiliation, you
have horne yourselves with uufalter- 1
iug confidence. The day of your!
deliverance was no' distant. [Cl
Let me enjoin upon you all i
hour of vour success persevera
their bread by the sweat of their i
brows. [Applause. I Nutt'! b>r<> the
land of their hirth moro fondly;
none will defend it with more con?
stancy and valor than those whose j
labor make np the sum of a nation's
wealth. [Applause.] So long as the
destinies of this country are i. the
haiais of 111.?,' wlioss limaos are made
sacred by justice-whoso liberties >
depend on tho courage with which
they are maintained-the old ?lag j
may defy all enemies, whether from
without or within, [Creal applause.]
It won':.! lu? difficult, under the
most favorable circumstances, for any
race of men to engage, ?ts yon have
now to do, in the most interesting
political event.-, without hoing deeply j
moved by their importance and no-1
velty. Let me advise you as a friend, ]
and as one nol without experience in |
public affairs, to preserve at all times
the utmost moderation of language, j
temper and conduct. Avoid every- ;
thing like violence, impatience or '
indecorum. Do not give even your,
adversaries just occasion to complain '
of thc least disrespect .shown to,
them in your discussions, private or
public. And beware of those who.
would endeavor to excite animosities j
between the white and black races.
The prosperity of thc South, the j
welfare of the country, are intimately .
associated with the harmony and ?
good feeling which should exist bc- '
tween tho people of both races and j
the South. Whatever seriously im- 1
pairs the interests of one race must
result seriously to the other. Intel- j
ligencc, culture, capital, land, are
not less essential than labor, and yet,
without labor, these eui have no
solid and enduring foundation. You .
have already shoVn your appr?cia
tion of these, advantages by the
eagerness with which you have om- '
ployed the opportunities lately given
to you to educate! yourselves, it
will* not be long before the white
race in thc South will seo how deeply
they arc interested in the education,
industry, thrift and progress of their
colored population, in this mutual
dependence lie- tin1 security of all.
Abundant time and opportunity
will bo afforded and ample notice
will be given of all the successive
steps to be tak< n in the organization
of thc State Government within my
command, lt will not bo necessary,
nor can it be otherwise than inju?
rious to yourselves, for you to neglect
your regular employment and asso?
ciations to attend to political affairs.
1 promise you that without any such
sacrifice on your part, every man in
the Carolinas entitled to a voice in
the decision of the great question to
be passed upon under my supervi?
sion, shall have a fair chance to act
his part without let or hindrance
from any one. My friends, I wish
you all good night. [Enthusiastic

pressing, andihe struggle through which
\vlier<- au active participation in this addi- i

tion of great numbers of helpless children, I
rendered thus by the terrible war through
which we have passed. And, assuredly,
whatever ni av have been the relative po?

referred to could not, by any possibility,
have had any agency in bringing about
their present deplorable and destitute con?
dition, and are suitable objects for the
charity of all persons, of whatever shade
of political opiuinn. Tin- "Home and
