Toil swings the axe, and forests bow,
The seeds break out in radiant bloom,
Rich harvests amile behind the plow,
And cities olnster round the loom.
Where towering domes and tapering |
Adorn the vale and crown the hill,
StOut labor lights its beacon fires,
And plumes with nmoke'tho forge and |
The monarch oak, the woodland's pride,
Whose trunk is seamed with lightning |
Toil launch??a on the Meatless tide,
jBgAnd there unroUs the flag of stars;
The engine with his lungs of flame,
And nbs of braas and joints of steel,
From labor's plastic fingers came,
With- sobbing valve and whirling |
Tis labor works the magic press,
And turns the crank in hi von of toil,
And beckons angels down to hless
Industrious hands on sea and soiL
Here sun-browned soil, with shining |
? i spade
Links lake to lake with silver ties,
Struck thick with palaces of trade.
And-temples towering to the skies.
The Ton n a do of Saturday.?A de?
structive tornado passed through Ogle
thorpe and Greene Counties, Saturday
afternoon, between'2 und ;t o'clock, de?
stroying -life and property to a fearful
extent. Scarcely a Iionae remains in its
course. Fences were blown, iu-eye'ry di?
rection, and the forest contplefely de?
stroyed. Words cannot, ^xurcss the
awful.scenes and distress which have so
soon and unexpectedly come upon the
le. ThoHu who yesterday had happy
ones and plenty, ^axo to-day without
house, food or clothing. ' The following |
are the names of the killed, wounded,
and those who had their houses de?
stroyed, in the immediate neighborhood
Of'^jnaX^ys, in the ..former County:
Kill&d W. Maxey and Peter Wat
Son, colored. , Wounded?William Jack?
son in head and hip, seriously; Mrs.
Mary' Asbury, in head,' shoulder and
breast, seriously; Tip Shaw, arm broken;
Z. Freeman, arm and eye; W. A. Pugh in
rd and arm broken; Crawford Zuber,
head and eye; X T. Bright well, in
lea; miss ? Asbury, finger cut off; John
Porter, in head;' Mrs. John Porter,
slightly; Handy Poullain, colored, mor?
tally wounded; Jane Butler, colored,
mortally; Frank' Barnett, colored, in
head; ?- ;Zuber. colored, in hip; Andy
Hilf, colored, arm broke; Dick Smith,
oolored, in arm; Kit Bugg, colored, in
head; Aaron Calloway, colored, in head;
Cheney Smith, colored, in shoulder;
Burl Cafloway, colored, in chest. There
are others' who are wounded, but we
have not-learned their names.
-The following are these who had their
houses destroyed: Mr. K. T. ABbury's
house?a large two-story building?was
completely demolished. His wife and
several children were in the house. Mr.
A.-T.'Brightwell's dwelling, a two-story
building, With four rooms and an L, his
wtere-house, a two-story building, kitchen
and fifteen other bouses on his place
were completely destroyed. The dwell
ing-house of Williapi Jewel and other
holdings on his1 place were nil blown
down. The chimney, a portion of the
dwelling-house and all out-houses of the
Misses Mbdre were destroyed. A part of
W. At Pttgh's dwelling and all other
house* on bis place, five or six in num?
ber, Were blown down. Several houses
on Hon. J. H. MoWhorter's place were
destroyed. Charlie Bryant's dwelling
Was blown down: A portion of Thomas !
Epps' house was destroyed. Several
houses on H. T. Bushel's place were
blown down. Mr. John Porter's house
was destroyed. W. H. Porter's gin-house
and several other houses on his place
were completely demolished. Mr. Jas.
Arthur's house was destroyed, and the
wind blew his wile fifty yards, but did
not seriously injure her. Several little
children wero in the house, and, strange
to relate, not one of them was hurt. Mr.
Jan. Hurt's dwelling was badly damaged,
and evory building except his dwelling,
a part of his : gin-house and one negro |
hoase -was completely demolished; also,
all the houses on Mr. John Hurt's place.
The telegraphic report, sent early Sa?
turday afternoon, was greatly exagge?
rated, as far as the damage, to Rutledge
was concerned. Instead of every house
in the village falling before the fury of
the blast, only one or two were injured.
A mile South of Covington, the tornado
struck the plantation of Mr. John Nor?
ton, leveled the dwelling, every out?
building and all the fences on the place.
Mr. Norton, his wife and child were in
tne dwelling. The two latter wore seri-j
ously injured by the falling timbers.1
Mr. Norton was also painfully wounded.
The hurricane struck Dr. Montgomery's
house with terrific violence, tore off the
roof and literally sucked out the South
side of the bnilding, carrying with it the
doctor and his family. The latter, five
or six in number, were blown several j
yards,1 huddled together . and finally
brought'Up against the roots of a tree
which bad been overturned by the gale.
To this they clung until the storm was
pa send, pelted by the terrific shower of
hall ana rain whioh accompanied the
wind..: .The report that one of Dr. Mont
rtaffy's children was blown away by
storm .was incorrect It then struck
the residence of Mr. John Steep, picked
if. up and carried it twenty-five feet,
Urning it one-fourth around. Mr. Stoop,
who.WSJ* standing in his front do?r at the
t?me, was uninjurod. Ha said that his
house, felt exactly as if it was gliding
K? * ?9ud of water, and that he felt no
Oha when it was put down on the earth
again. Miss Sallie Shore's house was
btoiA dowTi"}^ Dr. E. P.
Browh's entire house was leveled. Dr.
Brown,'his. wjfs and a servant were in
the house at the time. The escape
of the three was almost miraculous.
"Let our Just Centn
Mr. Hill Davis" house was torn to pieces,
his wife's jaw boue broken and bis little
Eirl Lilian badly injured. Mr. Davis
imself was seriously hurt. Every
building was torn down, and the bark
was literally torn off the fruit trees in
the orchard. It is supposed that this
was done by the pelting of recks against
the trees, as the field across which the
storm swept was tilled with pebbles.
These were hurled down in a perfect
shower upon the houses and timber.* It
then crossed the creek into Mrs. Thomas
Stellings place, whieh ? it devastated in
a terrible manner. Mr. James Burton's |
farm was the next in the route of the de?
stroying elements. This gentleman's I
residence and out-buildings, with nearly I
all the timber, were destroyed. A re?
markable fact was noticed at Mrs. Stell
ing's. The top soil, trash and rails in
und around a largo cotton field were
blown up a steep hill, which actually
looked afterwards as if a mighty flood
had swept up its side. The drift was
piled against tho sides of large logs ex?
actly as it would have been by a torrent
of water. Mrs. Stelling's chimneys wero
snapped off and fell upon the roof of
her dwelling, crushing through. The
gardens wero destroyed and out-build?
ings slso. Mr. Crowley's house and
fenoing wero demolished. Buildings,
fences and trees were leveled at Rhoury's |
place. At Rutlcdge the Masonic Hull,
in tho Eastern part of the town, was|
completely torn down.
Near Covington, the tornado 6ooms to I
have divided into three?one, moving
from the South-west, traveled a little
North to East, and was that which passed
near and over Rutlodge. This was about
half a mile wide. Another of the three
went due North. This passed over
Maxey's, a station on the Athens branch [
of the Georgia Railroad, blew down a
number of buildings and killed a young
man named Maxoy and a negro. A party
of young men out fishing at tho time had
their wagon blown away and the horse
killed. Up to the timo when our infor?
mant heard from that section, all tho
fishing party had not been found, and it
was supposed that several of them wero
killed. The tornado crossed the Oconee
River at Mill Shoal's Factory. All the
buildings except the factory were blown
down. Tne third fork of tho tornado
traveled in a Southerly direction, and is
said to have caused great destruction in
A letter from Bairdstown, Ga.,says:]
It is impossible to estimate the damage |
done by the cyclono?completely de?
molishing houses and destroying farms.
Several persons killed and many
The storm created considerable da-1
mage iu some portions of Bornwell |
County, S. C. A farmer from that sec?
tion was in the city yesterday for the
purpose of purchasing horses and mules,
all of his, five in number, having been
killed by the storm, which blow a stable
down on them.
[Awjusta Chronicle <?* Sentinel.
A Young Martyr.?Tho death of Miss
Fitzgerald, of Faterson, N. J., by kero?
sene burning, heretofore announced, was
a cose of martyrdom. In getting out of
bed to procure relief for a tooth-ache,
she upset the lamp and set fire to the
bed. Her first thought was not of her?
self, but of some children who were
sleeping in the same room with her, and
she carried them out, and ran into the
street, all burning and naked as she was,
the blinding snow affording a grateful
sense of relief. Her cries aroused the
other inmates of the house, among them
Dr. Cahill and his brother .William, who
ran to her rescue and carried' her into |
the house, young Cahill getting his
hands severely burned in so doing.
Meanwhile, the unfortunate girl was suf?
fering untold agony from her burns.
Her whole body, from her neck down,
was burned?her sides to a crisp, and her
foet and limbs so that the skin peeled off
and fell down in strips. But she bore
her sufferings like a martyr, and when
Dr. Cahill applied oil and lime water to
ease her pain, she said, gratefully: ' 'That
feels good; I shall never forget 3*00, doc?
tor." It was evident that her injuries
were fatal, and that all that was possible
to be done for her was to ease her puin.
She lingered till about 1.30 o'clock, when

thus giving that office to the Democrats.
This is the first timo tho city has gono
Democratic since the war. Telegrams
from Salisbury, Hillsboro, Durham's,
Henderson and Warrenton indicate that
the Democrats havo swept everything.

Youniyi i. MunnEKKSu. ? A murder was
committed Saturday morning, in tho
North-western portion of Fairfield. A
colored girl, aged twelve years, who had
for some time post been compelled to
nurse the infant child of her sister, took
the infant, carried it to McLure's crock,
divested it of clothing, threw it into a
hole and drownod it Search was insti?
tuted for the lost infant, and upon the
assertion of ono of tho by-standers that
he could put breath into the infant, tho
girl confessed her crime and showed tho
place where it had been committed.
