Death of a Hoted Kentucky Guerilla.
At about hall-past 10 o'clock yes?
terday morning, one of tho most ter?
rible bush-whackers that figured on
either side during the war, breathed
his last at our city hospital. The
noted Captain Ed. Terrell is no more.
These words will cause a feeling of
relief to hundreds of good mon in
Shelby and other counties in this
State. He was without doubt ono of
the most heartless and winked men
that has figured in this age. It is
believed by those who know whereof
they speak, that Ed. Terrell murdered
no less than twenty men during his
life. He was conspicuous in both
the Confederate and Federal armies.
At the breaking out of the war ho
enlisted in the Dixie Guards, a com?
pany commanded by Jack Thomp?
son, of Owenaboro', which was mus?
tered into the First Kentucky (Con?
federate) regiment. He afterwards
joined General Morgan's command,
from which he deserted in 18G3, and
turned up as captain of a company of
independent (Federal) scouts. It
will be remembered that it was Capt.
Ed. Terrell who murdered Hercules
Walker in 1864, on his farm, a few
miles from the city, on the Preston
street road. Terrell rode up to the
house of Walker and inquired for
him. Walker's wife called him from
his work in the field, and, upon his
coming up to the door, Terrell deli?
berately shot him down without utter?
ing a word. He said at the time that
he had a commission to kill ten men,
and Walker was tho first of tho num?
ber. After committing this bloody
deed the desperado rode off in search
of new viotims.
He also murdered Ennis Wood, an
industrious and worthy blacksmith,
at Taylorsville, in Spencer County.
Terrell had got a number of horses
shod, and upon being asked by Wood
who was to pay for tho work, he
became enraged and shot tho poor
man down in cold blood.
In 1864, he murdered Mr. Johnson,
a worthy citizen of Indiana, who
came to Kentucky with a drove of
cattle, which he had sold and for
which he had received tho money.
Terrell decoyed tho unsuspecting
drover out a few miles from Shelby
ville, when ho knocked him on the
head, stripped tho body of what
money was upon it, and thou threw
it in Clear Creek, where it was dis?
covered and tho orimo traced to Ter?
rell. He was indicted and lay in
jail for a long time, until be broke
out, and shortly afterwards visited
Shelbyvillo with his gang. Ho was
attacked by a posse of citizens and
fairly riddled with bullets, yet bis
time had not come for death. He
lived, but in a very crippled condi?
tion. He was afterward captured,
but by some machination got reloused
on his own bond.
On one occasion, we aro told, bo
was courting a beautiful girl. Her
brother had como into the parlor
and was introduced to Terrell. Tho
?oung man had on a fine pair of new
oots. Terrell set bis affections upon
them, and on that same night, shot
and killed the youngman for tho solo
purpose of getting bis boots. Terrell
afterwards boasted of this exploit.
His trail was marked with tho blood
of his innocent victims throughout
tho war, and long after its oloso.
While on tho Confederate side, ho
was a boon companion of Sue Mun?
day and Champ Ferguson. He was
outlawed by all Confederate forcos,
and bush-whacked on his own book
for plunder, until he got into the
Federal carny. He then obtained a
roving commission, and commenced
his bloody career anew, killing the
friends with whom ho had camped
and fought in a common cause.
About three months ago, Terrell
was shot and wounded in five or. six
places by a brother-in-law whom ho
had grossly wronged. Thu?, we be?
lieve, finished his career, so far as
spilling blood was concerned. Some
two months ago, ho was brongbt to
the Louisville city hospital, whore he |
lingered in gr?at a^ouy until death
came to bis relief. He was a terror
to the people of Shelby County and
other localities in Kentucky. Thus
has passed away one ol tho last of
the monstrous desperadoes to whom
the war gavo birth.
CONFLICT OF RACES IN TnEjSouTn.
Tho news that comes to us almost
daily from tho South about conflicts
between | tho whites and negroes
shows an unpromising state of things.
It indicates, indeed, a conflict in the
futuro between the two races as irre?
pressible as that which existed be?
tween the North and South on the sub?
ject of slavery. And what is tho cause?
Radicalism. Northern carpet-bag
radicals, with a few radical Southern
scalawags, mako tho deluded negroes
their tools, and bring about these
conflicts. The mass of tho Southern
v/hites everywhere desire pence and
to live in harmony with tho negroes
under the new order of things.
They aro aware that their own wel?
fare depends upon this, as well as
that of tho colored folks, and strain
every norvo to maintain friendly re?
lations with the negroes; but the
radical fire-brands will not permit
that. If these conflicts coutiuue
they will assuredly inaugurate a gen?
eral war of races, and in that enso
tho negroes must go to the wall.
Blood is thicker than vater, and tho
whites will rally together against the
blacks. In such a war thc sympathy
of tho white people of tho North, too,
must be with their own raco. Tho
pretended radical friends of tho ne?
gro are really bis worst enemy and
are preparing tho way for the extin?
guishment of his raco in this coun?
try.-Nets York Herald.
An armed and organized body of
lawless negroes on Skidaway Island,
have declared their purposo to ob?
struct tho rivers, and to kill and
murder every white man who shall
dare pursue his avocation of fishing
and oystering; and on tho 16th in?
stant, as a party of white fishermen
were passing Skidaway, a heavy fire
was opened upon them by a largo
body of negroes, who declared their
purpose to mle thoso waters in de?
fiance of law.
"MANHOOD."-Another Now Medical
Pamphlet from tho pen of Dr. Cur tia. Tho
Medical Times says of this work: "This
valuable treatise on the causo and cure of
prematuro declino shows how health is
impaired through secret abuses of youth
and manhood, and how easily regained. It
gives a clear synopsis of tho impediments
to marriage, the cause and effects of ner?
vous debility, and the remedies therefor."
A pocket edition of tho above will be for?
warded on receipt of 25 Cents, by ad?
dressing Dr. Curtis, No. 58 North Charles
street, baltimore, Md. May 27 ly
CONVALESCENCE.--After a disease
has been conquered, there is still the
weakness that it leaves behind it to bo
removed. Convalescence is a tedious af?
fair. If the enfeebled and flaccid mus?
cles, the shattered nerves, tho thin and
watery blood could speak, they would cry
for help. In too many cases such help as
is given thom ia not of tho right kind. The
fiery stimulants of commerce do harm.
Thoy kindle a temporary flame, which is a
mockery. Their effect passes, and thc last
state of him who uses them is worse than
the first. Not such is tho effect of HOB
TETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS. There
is no drawback to its toning properties. It
has been found THE GREAT MEDICINE
OF THE AGE for sustaining and bracing
up the enfeebled constitution-no matter
how much debilitated-as it not only be?
stows strength, but soothes thc nervous
system and allays all excitement of tho
brain. Wnile this excellent preparation
possesses such effective properties, it is
perfectly safe and is agreeable to the taste.
Attempts have boon made ti? rival it.
They have failed. Can it bo necessary to
say why they have failed? Ask the recover*
od dyspeptics, bilious sufferers, victims
of fever and aguo and nervous subjeots,
who have experienced its effects, what they
think of it. Ask THEM, and bo guided by
what they say.
As a household medicino it is available
at all times in casos of indigestion; bilious
and other fevers, and all diseases arising
from an impuro condition of tho stomach
or liver._ Dec 18 f6 _
