A MYSTERIOUS MURDER-The murder
of a young mau named McDaniel by a
negro mau, which wns perpetrated last
Tuesday, near the fiftcun-mile post on
tho Georgia Railroad, is roported from
AngtiBta. The murderer escaped, and
but few details of the crime have been
received. It appears that a Mr. McDa?
niel owns a mill on tho Georgia Railroad,
and Tuesday aftornoon, about 1 o'clock,
his son, a young mau fifteen years old,
eutered tho mill. There was in the
building at the time only a negro man,
whoSG L&Qj? is D?t giveu. What passed
between tho parties is not known, but in
H few minutes tho report of a pistol wus
heard. Parties entering the mill found
McDaniel shot through the breast and in
a dying condition. He had been shot
by thu negro, and the latter had made
his escape. Young McDaniel lived only
for a few minutes. Parlies immediately
started iu ptirbllit of the munleror, and
he wus traced to a point three miles from
Augusta, but thoro tho clue was lost.

A few years ago, I was much embar?
rassed by the difflonlty of ohoioe. < Flo?
rida held many attractions, bot, on the
other hand, I was strongly tempted to
try the hunting-grounds about 200 miles
West of Omaha, where, an energetic
Western friend wrote me, all kinds ol
game were to be had in plenty, espe?
cially, he informed me, in a floe burst ol
enthusiasm,."big game,"deer, buffaloes,
bears, and-and-Indians. With manj
a sigh, I turned from this alluring pres
peet, involving tho sacrifi?e of too mool
time, and betook myself to tho St. Jobi
River, Florida, and, engaging the ser'
vioea of one Lafayette K. Wallop, bet
tor known in that part as Ohnnky Lafe
in allusion to hia thick set muscular con
formation, as huntsman, boatman, am
general factotum, I set ont in qnest o
deer, Lafe paddling away at a grea
pace. Gbnnky Lafe waa a silent man
sparing of hin speech, but prodigal o
hi? thews and sinews. His powerfo
strokes sent the light oraft flying rapidl;
past the marshy banks, wooded to tin
water's edge, till, just os I was bogin
'ning to enjoy tho enforoed repose of th
passive tenant of a canoe, a snddei

STOUT OP THS GREEN CAIU'ET-TJAOORK.
A good story is told about a green
carpet-bagger, who came to Washington
sometime last session with a considera?
ble pile of greenbacks, and more curi?
ous cunning, fell in ono night with a set
of cappers and ropers for a faro bank,
not ia? from the National Hotel. They
took him- around in a very genteel way,
and treated him copiously, and showed
bim some sights, and then when they
thought the proper time had arrived,
proposed to fight a little game of the
tiger. The carpet-bagger, nothing loath,
followed them to their headquarter*;
and, in order to make it appear perfectly
fair, they proposed that the mau who
had the largest amount of money should
be the dealer. The green carpet-bagger
revealed his pile, which tbe crowd was
very anxious to see, and to their delight
it proved, tbe biggest pile.
"You are to be dealer 1" cried all.
"Ob, no boys," protested tbe green
carpet bagger, "I can't deal; I don't
know anything about it. I've bucked
many a time, but I've never dealt; can't
They all protested that as he had the
biggest pile, and bad won tho obanoe, be
must be tho dealer.
"No, nol" cried tho green carpet-bag?
ger. "I'll give ten dollars, twenty dol?
lars, yea, filly dollars, to any mau who
will deal in my place."
They all insisted that ho should deal.
He took up tbe cards in an awkward
way, shuffled them with many ? gri?
mace, and as bu was aboot to put the
cards into thc box from which they were
to be drawo, his hand accidentally
slipped and revealed, under tho top
card, the king of hearts, so that they all
saw it. Every gambler immediately
coppered on the king of hearts.
Tho green carpet-bugger at onoe cried
"Now, now, como boys, come, this
won't do; you're taking the advantage
of mo. There is something wrong, or
yon wouldn't all bet in that way toge?
ther. I won't play unless I can have
They all insisted that the game should
go on just as it wa?, and after many pro?
testations that it wus not a fair thing to i
take in u stranger so, the green carpet?
bagger proceeded to deal.
ile slipped off the top card, and there
beneath, euro enough, was thu king of.
They all pushed forward to sweep off
the moDoy, but tho very green carpet
bagger, drawing off the klug of hearts,
exposed auothor king for thu third card.
This made splits.
"I'll take half that pile, boys," said
tho greenest uf green carpet-baggers.
And bo passed out with a mild expres?
sion of countenance to look ut tho stat ne
