MANY FAMILIES LEFT EXPOSED
AN D HOMELESS.
Nashville, April 1. A Banner
special from Franklin, 'Williamson county,
Tennessee, states that a tornado visited
that placo this a.m., at C: 15, lasting twenty
minutes. Hardly a houso in tho placo es
caped damage. In many inst&ncos tho en-
tiro roofs of houses wcro blown ofl'and tho
wulia thrown down. Among principal
suU'orers aro tho New Methodist church,
court-house, Popo &i Campboli, Harpor i
Bailoy, Haines & Androws, I'oviow and
Journal office, F. G. Bostiek, Mr. Mills,
Crutcher's hotel, Franklin Manufacturing
company, It. P.anp and tho railroad depot.
Great constornatioulprovailcd umongst tho
people; fortunatoly only ono person was
hurt. The loss is vory considerable. The
town looks liko a shattered wreck.
Me una, March 1. Tho storm at Can
ton, Mississippi, eooros to havo been much
greater than was inferred from the mca-
gro dispatches. An extra issued from the
Mail otlico Saturday morning says: "Tho
courso or tuo tornAdo scorned
from tho northwest, and its
truck was scarcely over soventy
yards In width, perhaps not so
much as that, and lay througli tha ccntro
of tho town. Houses wcro utterly de
molished and blown away, leaving bare
walls standing, twisted and distorted in all
inunncr of chapes. Brick walls of build
ings, and solid chimnoys wore blown
down, and missels ware sont through tho
air such as timbers, bricks and pieces of
wood with foarfal forco. Tho
Fcarco houso is in ruins,
and tho stores and shops abovo
it aro leveled to tho ground. Tho old
stone houso is a wrock, with tho rooting,
galleries and pillars all gone. Dwellings
aro mere heaps oi timbers. Kltchons and
outhouses wore blown absolutely away,
yards swept clean of ovory living thing,
poultry, dogs and all vanished. Substan
tial dwellings woro torn from
thoir foundations, heavily laden
cars blown from tho track, hugo pieces of
umuor mown many hundred yards and
buriod whoro thoy loll in tho oarth, will
convey an idea of tho ruin accomplished
last night, all in a half mlnuto's timo. Mr.
Powell's residonco, and ono occupied by
Mr. Slungorland, a neighboring cottogo,
R. 0. Smith's rcsidonce, a cottngo noxt to
tho old comotory, tho colored Methodist
church and a small cottago occupied
by ft colored man and family, near
by, were utterly domolisUcd. Tbo wife
of tho colored roan was buriod bonoatb tho
ruins and instantly killed, Tho colored
preacher was buried-benoath tho chimnoy,
but not killed as was first roportod, A
number of pooplo woro hurt in this
neighborhood. Robert 0. Smith's res!.
denoo was lifted from Its foundational! d
moved sovoral feet. His kitchen, and
ovcry living thing In tho yards woro swept
awuy nothing but tbo crumbling walls
wcro loft. .1. "W- FowoU'a kitchen and
other outhouses woro demolished and two
chimneys of his residenco woro blown Into
fragmonts. William Baldwin's rcjldenco
bud tho roof stoved In. Everywhere in
tho path of tho tornado buildings wcro ra
zed to tho ground or left roofless after t'io
storm. Tho town was tho scone of tho
wildest disorder. Tho flames from How
colt's residonco shono against t ho black
clouds, quantities of timber and
trecj obstructed tho streets,
men woro running from point to point,
to rcscuo thoso in distress. Tbo flremcM
were at their post endeavoring to drag a
flro cngino to tbo scono of tho Qro.
Women wills lnlants in their arms went
about tho streets distracted, not knowing
whoro to go Tho l'carco house, as men
tioned, presents tho appcaranco of
a wreck. Also Col.Jonci' building, n ono
slory brick store, occupied by Mrs. Subn
as a confectionery And bakery establish
ment, All aro a mass of ruiui. Mr. L,
Ludcman, who was in at Mrs. Suhn'n, had
on arm broken. Tho houso was utterly
demolished. The iron fence that enclosed
tbo couit yard is twisted bent and
broken. Opposite the l'earco
houso as If by thu might of a gi(.nt, and
tbo court-house- itself, on ono side, is actu
ally leaning eastward, wbllo its roofing is
in tattors. In tbo northwestern quarter of
town wo find families shelterless, and cot
tages piled up in fragments. John How
cott's houso wes blown down
and cither from a lamp, or
boing struck by lightning, took fire. In at
brief timo all that remained of a homo
and its comforts wcro tho charred ruins.
A number of persons woro Injured moro
or less. There is no calculating now tho
amount of damago done to property.
Mrs, Slingeriand, wo learn, was only
slightly hurt, although her houso was de
stroyed. Somo thirty or moro
houses woro destroyed and a larger
number badly damaged. Ono negro
woman lost her child, and it whs only
found to-day nt n houso soma dlstanco
removed from its home, whero it had been
kindly cared for. It was not much hurt
in its perilous ride of tbo whirlwind. A
negro man is reported milting, also two
negro children. Perhaps tho number of
fifteen will cover tbo number of tho in
jured, most of theso but slightly hurt.
No estimate can as rot be
given of tho amount of damago Sustained
from lots of property, but it is believed
$100,000 will fall short or covering it.
Mrs. Howcatt, 3Ir. John Howcatt's
mother, was soverlly injured, having been
caught beneath the falling building. Sho
states the houso was struck by lightening,
and thus set on Oro. A littlo later and
tho skies wcro perfectly clear, and tho
stars looked down serenely upon tho sccno
of disaster below.

A FRENCH 'l'ARRlCIDE.
Tho 'Dally News' (London) tells tho
following almost incrcdiblo story:
"There is an old story of a man who,
having been convicted of murdering his
mother and fathor, was asked by tbo Judge
if ho had anything to nay beforo sentenco
was pronounced, whereupon ho answered,
'Nothing, your Lordship, only I hopo you
will havo morcy on a poor orphan.'
Another story, unfortunately and horribly
truo, now comes to us from France, tho
horo of which has admitted that ho tried
to tnurdor his father In order to qualify
himself, ns tho son of a widow, for exemp
tion from tho military conscription. That
such a rnotivo should havo
been tbo cause of such a crimo,
and should havo been so callously confess
ed, scctnK almost too monstrous to bo pos
sible: but the facts, stated In the Asslzo
court of tho Solnc-ot-Marno, are indisput
able. Tho crimo was most doliborato; tho
ruffian tlrod at hit futhor, and finding the
shot did not kill him, having beaton him
with tho butt ot liis gun until it broke,
then attacked tho wounded man with a
bill-hook, leaving him for dead. 'Extenu
ating circumstances aro frequently met
with in tho verdicts of French juries
whon no human ingenuity can discover
tuo reason ot tucir being mere; out in
this case no such indirect recommendation
to mercy was mentioned. Tho court con
demned tho man to ho exocutod at Molun
nnd if tho exocutiou bo carried into effect,
tho villlaco in which this nrccious ppecl-
mon of humanity was born and reared
cannot ho consiuorou to navo lost mucn. '

publican county convontlon was held, ono
of whoso acts was to arraign Gen. Garfield
for his voto, and roquest him
to resign. This rebuko must havo
strucic him with tno lorca or

AN ARKANSAS MAN IN A.
CROWD OF PICKPOCKETS.
From tho Indianapolis Sentinel, March 17.
Two pickpockets yesterday morning at
tomptod to work a portly old party from
Atkunsas. Thoy began thoir efforts on
tho Loulsvillo sleepor, as it was coming
through tho yurds, and commonced crowd
ing around tbo denizen of Arkansas wilds
in a way which ho despised. Tho more so
as ho was on his way homo from tho in
auguration at "Washington, whero he
had been roliovcd of a fino gold watch by
tbo same crowding process. Ho allowed
tho follows to work their gamo untill ho
found out thoir intentions had reference to
what valuablos he cscapod with from
Washington. When ho thought the thing
had gono far enough, ho drew an Arkansas
toothpick from somowhore about bis
clothes, and evinced a strong desire to
oviscorato tho thieves and othorwlso ex
plore tho interior of thoir corporeal sys
tems In a way highly prejudicial to their
welfaro. Tho toothpick was a cross
botwecn a regulation bowie and a
calvary saber, and it is need
less to say that tho chevaliers d' In

being part of tho samo gang that had boon

was corroborated by thoslcoping car con
