And the three words were these:
"Consider Yourself Disinherited."
That was the way in which Major Mar

Not that he did not love Harry the
bright, frank boy, who was all that was

from his face, as he answered bravely :

Why, he did not especially partieular

Newport one was half a mite away from

on his fastidious taste. So to Atlantic

him by the various widows, old maids
and gushing damsels who were there en

'I wonder if they think i tint a fool,"
said the Major, as he strolled on the beach
with a cigar in his mouth.
But one day the Major found himself
forced to give up a picnic on account of
a strange and unusual feelingof lassitude
and languor, and the next he was in

himself. "I've heard of a low fever

The doctor came, twirled hi. watch-

l'eople made haste to vacate the rooms

through a mist, that was slowly gather

Cincinnati Enquirer j The white Re
publicans of Tennessee are in a curious
predicament. At their recent State Con
vention, the party being in a hopeless
minority, it was decided to make no nom
ination but with the implied understand
ing that the entire Itepublican vote
should go to the support of Dorsey B.
Thomas, a pseudo Democrat, who is run
ning as an Independent candidate for
Governor. By this means it was hoped
to compass the defeat of tiovernor for
ter, the Democratic nominee, and this
result would undoubtedly have been
claimed as a Republican victory, as has
been done heretolore in the case ot sev
eral Independent candidates in the South
who have been elected by the assistance
of Republican votes. There was, howev
er, a very disorderly colored delegate ia
their convention who insisted upon the
nomination of a t'u'l ticket. He was sup
pressed at the time; bnt it appears that
he will not down, and he has since been
giving great ' trouble to . hi party as
sociates. Yardley Is hi name, and he
has been a protege ol the great hud good
Brownlow. He prompt! repudiated the
action ot the convention after its ad
journment, and it has even been whis
pered by the alarmed Republicans that
he might announce mmscii as x canm
date for Governor. This a telegram this
morning tells us that he has doue in very
truth, and that is why the Tennessee Ke-
nublicans are in a peck of trouble. For
among the Republicans of Tennessee, as
in Kentucky and .Missouri, mere is a ue
cided prejudice against the negro n any
other political attitut. a than as a voter.
In the two rirst-named States esiveeially,
no negro has ever, to our recollection,
been nominated by a State convention,
although in the colored vote is vested the
brawn ami sinew of the party. On sev
eral memorable occasions in Kentucky
it has been only by frantic efforts that
aspiring colored jtoliticians have been
squelched, and there has been a great
dissatisfaction among . them thereat.
Now. such Cauca-ians iu Tennessee u.
hold Republican opinions and wish to give
tltein expression by the ballot are orought
race to lace with a iticiuttui alternative.
If they vote for Thomas, they can never
again hope to command the negro vote;
and to vote for a colored man is some
thing which the Tennessee- Republican
would as soon be shot as to do. This is
not consistency, but it is the solemn
trutb. And what they will do about, it
we are ,'nt prepared to say, except to ex
press the lielief th:it the vote for Mr.
Yardjcy as a candidate for Governor will

Some of the citizens of Waco who had
been up at Kimball, Bosque county, have
given the Examiner the following partic

morning of the 1st September, on the
bank of the Brazos, opposite and near
the town of Kimball : A party composed
of Walter Turner, Ed. Brown aud
Thompson, from Kaufman county, had
been in that locality for several days
with race horses. On Thursday last
Frank and Lacy Robinson, Taylor Camp
bell and Wlley'Nornian, all of Hill coun
ty, went to the camp of the Kaufman
county men and got into a dispute with
them about a pony race, which resulted
in a fist fl.ht. "The parties agreed to
meet the next day and settle the thing In
a more satisfactory manner. So, at ten
o'clock Friday nioruing, the Hill county
men took a stand at tha place agreed up
on, in readiness for action. I'hey had
not waited long till tha other party rode
toward them. The men were all armed
with six-shooters, except Turner, who
carried a needle carbine. When the par
ties had approached within twenty yards
of each other, Taylor Campbell fired at
Turner and the battle commenced. Tur
ner leaped from his horse and fired three
shots with his terrible carbine. The first
shot went crashing through Campbell's
brain, the second caosedthe instantdeath
of Frank Robinson, and. the last shot
mortally wounded Lacy Robinson. By
this time a ball from Thompson's revolv
er had passed through poor Norman's
breast, a boy aged seventeen years; and
all of the liill county party lay welter
iog iu their blood. Some twenty shots
were Urcd altogether. More than half
the shots were by the Hill county party,
but. strange to say, none of the Kaufman
county uieu were in the least hurt.
Campbell and Frank Robinson each fired
five shots. Norman and Lacy Robinson
also tired, but the only damage they did
was to kill Turner's horse. The surviv
ing party mounted horses and Med the
country. A hundred men started in pur
suit. Both the Robinsons leave families.
Campbell and Norman are unmarried.
The Kaufman county party are all boys,
none of them being more than nineteen
or twenty years of age.

Never, while life endures, t ill the
British soldier forget the sight that met
his gaze as be entered this India city of
unutterable horrors, on the sunny morn
ing ot the 17th of July, 18-7. I was
there. When that atrocious devil, the
Nana Saiiib, heard of our relief approa
ching, and of our carrying the bridge,
he ordered the butchery of every white
man, woman and child. For weeks, and
even months afterward, might be seen in
Calcutta, lailies who had escaped with
lips, or cars, or noses, or tongues cut off,
w hilst others had suffered sued horrible
aud unimaginable degrading horrors that
they refused all identification ! Children
were there with eyes gouged out and
feet cutoff. Oue touching instance of
such atrocity I can never forget a lovely
fair-haired 'child, who could only de
scribe herself as "mamma's iiet."
Very, very little was said by men or
officers. Some eyes, perhaps, w ere for a
moment dim, but there was a curious
expression in every face sternly com
pressed, pale lips, and a dangerous glint
in every eye. One officer writes of two
little children tortured to death, and por
tions of their quivering flesh forced down
the throats of their jtarent, who, strip
Icd nuked and tied tip were compelled to
witness the horror. In tlie chamber
where the last slaughter was made tin
floor was actually and literally several
inches deep in blood, no that it ovri hel

was range ! a long row o ladies' boot,
with bleeding amputated feet in them,
aud on the other a corresponding row of

The seventy-eighth Highlanders were
with me. and' they found tlie body of l!ie
beautiful daughter or Hir Hugh Wheeler,
horrihly mutilated. With held breath,
they removed her hair carefully from her
bead. They sent one portion to her rel

among themselves. I lien eacn man,
standing in blood over their shoes, lilted
their right hands to heaven, aud swort
by the Almighty Cod, that, witn me.
they would each kill an Indian for each
hair thev held. Women gently, deli
cately bred and nurtured ladies were to
be seen staked down with outstretched
arms and legs, naked, and left to die iu

There is a chance that the new naval
rendenzvons, which is tr take the place
of three or more navy yards, will be lo

with some favor among prominent naval
officer, as either of those islands a fjords
superior natural advantages for such
rendezvous. The Savannah river being
fresh water is considered to be the most
suitable harbor for our iron-clads, as the
deterioration of that class of vessels is
not so grent iu fresh as salt water. The
location of the islands is such that thev
