Tuc RADICAL FonoEiiY EXPOSED.-A
Washington lotter says: "Tho publica?
tion in a Now York paper a week ago of
what purported to bo tho proceedings
and address of a Southern association,
alleged to bo formed here, looking event?
ually to a future independence of the
South, has turned out ou inquiry, as was
at tho time supposed, to bu n Republi?
can electioneering document, not hav?
ing a singlu fact for a basis. No auch
organization exiBts hure, nor over has
existed since tho war."
EPISCOPAL SECESSION.-Mention has
been made of tho action o? n New York
congregation of tho Protestant Episco?
pal communion, presided over by Rev.
Geo. E. Thrall, which had adopted a
now ritual, ncoording to a volume called
the "Union Prayer Book," lately intro?
duced by thoir rector, and which, ap?
parently, relies upon its merits to ooin
mend it to use, ns it docs not purport to
bo sanctioned by nny constituted "au?
thority" whatover. A variety of depart?
ures, chiefly verbal, from tho old Epis?
copal Book of Common Prayer, aro
taken, chiefly with tho view of simplify?
ing, it but two appear to involve what
will perhaps bo generally oousidorcd
matter of doctrine. In tho Athanasian
.creod tho words "I acknowledge one
baptism for thc remission of sins" are
omitted, and the other affirmation, "]
behove in ono oatholio and apostolic
ohuroh" is rendered "I bolieve io one
.holy ohuroh universal." Io tho rito foi
baptism tho words "and do sign hire
with tho sign of tho cross" aro omitted,
besides several substitutions and simpli
ficatipns. Surprise has boen expressoc
that Bishop Pottor has taken no notioi
of this mutter within his episcopal juris
diction. Tho explanation is that tin
Bishop has gone to tho country, ant
will not return till about tho 15th in
Of all humbugs, make-bolioves ant

They comply with tho domands of
most absurd fashiou, and while they d
so, they uttorly destroy all tho graco an
elasticity of a true woman's walk, all th
poetry of woman's movements in th
parlor or on tho street, and all the con;
fort and ease which nature attaches t
harmonious pedestrial operations,
heel three inohes high is not a naturi
heel; whilo it gives increase of height, i
adds monstrosity of movemont. It di:
arranges the natural centre of gravih

date itself to au artificial stand-point bi
neath the centre and instep, and leat
to such self-torture and solf-caricatui
as would bo ridiculous to the fair crei
tures, if thoy were but to seo thomsolvt
as others see them. No really gracoft
object in nature is over eo changed fe
the worse, as a fashionable woman in h<
panniers and high-hooled shoes. Tbl

over hot grate bars, and that forwai

Her feet, of oour J, become deformed L
bunions, oallosi' JS and deformed joint

TUE FAMINE IN PERSIA.-Tho accounts
that bavo for some time been slowly ar?
riving in British ludia, it ia stated, provo
conclusively that famine of tbo most ap?
palling description provails in Persia,
lu all parts of India relief committees
havo been formed and subscriptions have
been liberally contributed. Tho accounts
from Meshed, tho capital of tho Pro?
vinco of Khorassan, in North-east Persia,
state that during tho six months preced?
ing April, IS,000 persons bad died from
(starvation-432 iu one day, aud that
parents had boon detected eating their
own offspring. Tho renewed and inces
Kuut incursions of thu Tut koreans had
rendered tho whole country unsafe, and
had greatly aggravated tho general dis?
tress. Tho Turkomans in ono incursion
aro reported to havo carried off 400 per?
sons into slavery. At Herat the effects
of scarcity as well as of tho siege were
also experienced, and several thousand
persons iu that city havo died of starva?
tion. At Ispaham" and Teheran tbo fa?
mine was very severo, but the worst ac?
counts, it is reported, have como from
the South of Persia. Serious bread
riots have takon placo at Shiraz, whore
not ono-eighth of tho population, it is
reported, has been loft alive. Tbo rov?
ing tribes in tho vicinity have takon ad?
vantage of tho general distress to rob
and plunder without distinction of ago
or condition of life. From Bushiro the
most painful acoounts of all have come,
but this, it is stated, is due to the fact
that there aro more Europeans in that
city to observe and report.
A Georgia negro thought he would

gusted, and ran away.

Radical Outrages In North Carolina.|
A lotter from Kooky Mount to tbe
Now York Sim gives Borne idea of tbe
kind of outrages daily perpetrated in
North Carolina. The writer says:
To show up tho Kn Klux bill in itu
true colors as a powerful political eugine
to bo w i elded by the President for private
purposes, let us seo what class of citi?
zens aro ooerced iu exercising their
rights of citizenship. That sword is
said to be a dangerous one whioh outs
both ways. A largo majority of the ne?
groes in North Carolina aro congregated
iu'the Eitsteru Counties, where tho soil
is moro fertile, cottou is grown, and
wages uro higher. The whites preponde?
rate in tho Western Counties, yet
United States troops aro always sont to
Alnmnnco and other Western Counties,
to koop straight mon who huvo always
been accustomed to tho ballot, while in
tho East tho negro neophytes ticed no
DOOK it not occur to the most superfi?
cial thinker that iguorunt, poor, thrift?
less blacks, recently enfranchised, would
nocd more protection at tho ballot-box
than tho whites? Thou, why aro tho
troops disposed as they are? Tho con?
clusion is inevitable. Tho negroes are
swayed by the ollico-holders, who in turn
"bond tho pregnant hinges of the knee"
to Geueral Grant, that "thrift may fol?
low fawning*" If intimidation nt the
ballot-box prevails anywhere in North
Carolina, and the protecting presence of
soldiers is required, then Eastern or no
gro Carolina is tho plaoe; for if a negro
should dare to vote the conservative
ticket in the negro country, ho would do
so at tho poril of his lifo. Many in?
stances of scourging arp known. Two
only will bo mentioned, as they found
publicity through tho courtH, and the
trials wera held iu the presence of tho
One occurred near Stantonsburg, in
Wilson County. A negro with a largo
family, whom his individual exertions
wore inadequate to support, and who
waB generously assisted by bis em?
ployer, had the temerity, notwithstand?
ing the threats mado against him by his
colored brothren, instigated by the white
office-seekers, to voto with his employer,
a Mr. Barnes. The next uight ho was
visited by twenty-five stalwart blacks,
grotesquely painted, and bearing each a
bundle of rods.
After terrifying tho victim's family,
cursing, abusing and threatening to kill
them, they stripped him of hi? shirt and
drawers, and then dragged him to thc
woods. Here they tied him, and then
proceeded to administer the most un?
merciful castigation on his bare back.
Tho duty of flogging was too onerous
for one man, so one would whip until be
was tired, and then a fresh mau would
take the place of the exhausted one, and
so on until all had played a proportion?
ate part. More dead than alive, this
almost inanimate mass of human gore
finally gasped n promise that ho would
henceforth voto with them, and then
these renominating agents desisted.
Near Bnttleboro, in Edgecombe Coun?
ty, a oolorcd mau wus surrounded in his
corn-field, by a select committee of
Union Leaguers. Without stating the
whys and wherefores, ho wa3 rudely
torn from his work and curried nuder
arrest to Bnttleboro. Ho besought II?B
captors to allow him to seo his family,
and tell them where ho was going, so UB
to savo them all anxioty. lie was told
to "shut up his d-d mouth, or he'd get
it busted." Ho was hauled up beforo
tho political inquisition, until ho was at
length intimidated into n promise, to
support the Grant ticket, and released.
Theso instances aro now matters of re?
cord, and can be soon in the clerk's office
of Nash and Wilsou Counties, and also
in Edgecombe County, whero the parties
THE CYCLONE IN GEOIIGIA-IMMENSE
DAMAGE TO Cnors AND RAILKOADS.-Tho
Augusta Constitutionalist, of thc9th, says:
Last Wednesday, a terrific gale, ao
companiod by heavy rain, swept over
tho country, between Milledgovillo and
Mucon, prostrating tho cottou and blow?
ing down fenoes. Tho floods did great
damage to tho Macon sud Augusta liail
road and the Central Railroad. On tho
hitter, tho track was washed up for some
distance, and several culverts and trestlo
works wero carried awuy. The passen?
ger train which loft Augusta ut 12 o'clock
Wednesday, on this road, was stopped
at Roberts' Station by employees of the
road, who gave tho conductor informa?
tion of tho break in front, and almost ut
tho samo timo nows was received of tho
damage which lind happenod to tho
track in the rear of tho train kineo its
passuge, thus cutting it off completely.
Tho cyclouo extonded as fur down ns
Burke County, doing great injury to the
cotton in that section, and was moro se?
vero than any storm experienced thero
for years. Other Counties yet to hear
from, no doubt, have been equally da?
maged. This storm has, perhaps, douo
greater injury to the crops thau tho cy
clono which devastated tho coast some
time since, ns it passed over a larger
tract of country and immediately through
tho cotton belt.
DREADFUL TltAOED? IN WILKINSON.
Tho Macon (Ga.) Citizen learns that about

THU REMAINS OF A GIANT RACE.-Tho
Petersburg Index, of yesterday, under a
sensational beading in its local column,
givoB publicity to tho following vory re?
markable aud interesting discovery of
Tho following information is given us
by gentlomen of tho highest charaater
and oredit, who have seeu with their
own eyes, touched and tested with tben?
owa hands, tho wonderful objects of
whioh they tnnko report.
Tho workmen eugaged in opening a
way for tho projected railroad botweeu
Weldon and Garysbnrg struck, Monday,
about one mile from tho former place,
iu a bank beside the river, a catacomb
of skeletons, supposed to bo tboso of In?
dians of a remote age and a lost and
forgotten ruco. Tho bodies exhumed
wero of strange and remarkable forma?
tion. Tho skulls wero nearly un inch in
thickness; tho teeth were filed sharp, ns
are those of cannibals-tho enamel per?
fectly preserved; the bones wero of won?
derful length and strength-the femur
being us long us tho log of nu ordinary
mau, the stature of tho body being, pro?
bably, us great ns eight or nine feet.
Near their hoads were sharp stone ur
row.'i, stono mortars, iu which their corn
was brayed, and tho bowls of pipes', ap?
parently of soft, friable sonp-stono. The
teeth of tho skeletons are said to bo as
largo as tboso of horses. Ono cf them
has boon brought to tho city and pre?
sented to nu officer of the Petersburg
Tho bodies were found closely packed
together, luid tier on tier, us it seemed.
There was no discernible ingress into or
egress out of the mound. Tho mystery
is who these giants were; to what race
they belonged, to what era, and how
thoy carno to be buried there. To these
inquiries no answer has 3-ot been made,
and meanwhile the ruthless spade con?
tinues to cleave skull aud body usunder,
throwing up ia mingled masses the bones
of this heroic tribu. We hope some ef?
forts will bo made to preserve authentic
and accurate accounts of these discove?
ries, and to throw some light, if possi?
ble, on the lost tribe whose bones have
boen thus rudely disturbed from their
sleep in earth's bosom.
AH a supplement to thc above, we
copy tho following from tho Wheeling
Intelligencer, as the giants and tho mound
builders may have been of tho same roce:
During last week, some workmen, in
making an excavation iu a mound at
Martin's Ferry, Ohio, discovered anti
exhumed two human skeletons. One ol
them was found intact; tho other hail
fallen to pieces. What was remarkoblc
about their burial was the fact that thc
bodies hud evidently been oovured by au
arch mado of limestone boulders, which
were in an irregular heap about tho re?
mains. Theso must have been carried ii
considerable distance and placed in thc
mound, as they oro not found in that al?
luvial formation. Portions of ono oi
tho skeletons were presented by Captain
James Dean to Professor Marton, of thc
Fomalo College, where they have beer
placed iu the museum. Theso remaint
aro supposed to bo of persons who be?
longed to tho ancient race of monad
builders, those aboriginal inhabitants o:
this country who aro said to antedato ii
their history even the Indians. Al
through the Mississippi Valley, from th(
lakes to tho Gulf, aro found defeusivi
earthworks aud other monuments o
these aucient mound-builders. Then
are said to be 10,000 of the mounds ii
Ohio alone. Some were erected for pur
poses of militar}' defense, others n:
great altars for religious worship, am
still others as burial places und inonu
mcuts for the dead.
Mr. Absalom Hooker, of Madisoi
Couuty, N. C., wns killed last week, un
der tho following circumstances: A nu m
ber of persons, on gaged in orecting a lo|
building, were carrying a heavy log oi
their shoulders, tho deceased being ii

Wheu they had reached their destinatioi

Tho English papers report a case c
child murder and suicide, which ha
produced a profound sensation. Th
guilty mother was Miss Fanny OOHS
sister of tho rector of Kingsland, Hen
ford Couuty. Tho child was foun
strangled by a string around its throat
and a medical examination of the female
of tho familj" having been ordered, MU
Goss shut herself up in her room, an
before she could be reached by the ext
miners, had gushed her arm desperate)
in four places, dying iu a fow miuuti
from loss of blood.
Tho people of Biughampton, X. Y
have been shocked by the anuouueemet
that a small boy, uino years old, nn ii
mate of tho Susquehanna Valley Homi
had been found in tho street with
block of wood, weighing sixteen pound
chained and riveted to his neck. TL
boy said he had escaped from the si
called "Home," in company with nnotlu
