FOR STATE SENATOR,
W. D. FULLTON,
of Williamson County.
Arkansas has gone Democratic by 50,
000 majority, and Vermont Republican
by a samll majority.
Elius Polk, a well known colored man
of Nashville, offers to take the stump in
favor of Tilden and Hendricks against
any speaker the Republicans can bring

Prof. T. II. Huxley, the greatest of the

Nashville, the guest of Albert Roberts,
the brilliant and witty editor of the Ame

delivered a public address to the people
ff Nashville last night.
Hear what a great Northern paper
says of Whitthorno's eight months work
in Congress: "lie 1ms uono a difficult,
arduous work, iu a way to render his
countrymen of all parties a high public
sorv'ce.'' Wouldn't it be a sin against
the republic to keep such a man out of
the public service?
The land is (lowing with milk and hon

at the Fair Ground is contemplated.
Ex-Oov. Horatio Seymour was nonii
nated for Governor by the Democrats of
New York, but he refuses to run on BC'
count of bad health , '1 his is a great mis
take tlie Democrats have made at this
crisis, and the Radicals are making the
most of it. The Convention hea been
called to meet xguin next Wednesday to
make another nomination, and it is
thought that the Hon. Clarkson N. Pot
ter will be nominated,
The Mass Meeting last Monday was
harmonious, and laid the foundations for
a tremendous victory in November. The
County Executive Committee was an iu
enirntion it embraces the names of tie
strongest representative men in the coun
1y, men of the people, who will go ear
nestly to work to perfect organization,
heal dissensions and secure harmony.
This committee has appointed admirable
sub-committees for each district. The
line of battle is forming : right dress
Dorscv II. J homas. Independent cati-
didato for Governor, waa in the Legisla'

Now he is running against the regular
nominco of the party because the latter
is for levying a tax of half that tuut-1
it Mr. 1 nomas had been nominated two
years ngo, instead of Governor Porter
which 1 .. c;imc very n-'nr doing, would
wo ever have heard nn thing of "low tax

W. Ij. Yardley, a colored lawyer
Knn.wille, has announced himself a can
didate for Governor of Tennessee. Th
white Republican leaders have been
w, u king hard to make him "quit his fool
isliness,'' but he won't quit says he
determined to run the race through. Wi
are unxious to Bee whether the colored
people will vote for one of their own col
or, or obey, as usual, the voice of the
white Radicals, and vote for Maney and
Gun. Rate and ex Gov. Footo will
speak in Lewisburg on the 2nd of Octo
ber, at Columbia on the 3d of October,

1 he latest tn k of the Radical Repub

Mr. Bykes first discussed Federal tax
ation and showed that tha real burdens
under which we were laboring were from
Federal taxes which amounted to ?7.00
per head of the whole population of the
United States. He said that the Repub
lican party had been in uninterrupted
control of the country during eleven years
of peace; that they had carried out all
their reconstruction policy, aud their fi
nanciul system, and now behold tee re1
suit, widespread pecuniary distress
throughout the land. The patient had
been growing worse tor eleven years, un
til he was now on the verge of his finan
cial grave, and unless he changed his
doctor he would soon be beyond hope of
recovery, in discussing state n nances,
Mr. Sykes showed that the greater por
tion ot the present debt of Tennessee was
created before the w;ir, for the building
of turnpikes, railroads, the State bank
and the capitol, most of the bonds issued
by Brownlow and Senter having been
paid. He mentioned the lact that near
f 400,000 of this debt had been created to
build a railroad in Maury County, which
the people now have the benefit of. He
stated that the saving in the cost of the
transportation of the two articles of corn
and wheat from this county by means of
this railroad far exceeded the whole State
tux of Maury, which was in 1874 141,672.
The saving upon the transportation of
hogs, cattle, mules, and various other ar
ticles would swell the amount to
three or four times as much as the State
tax. Mr. Sykes said he could and would
not believe that the people who were en
joying such benefits would ever for a mo
ment think of not being willing to meet
their just obligations. Let other coun
ties do as they might, he felt that Maury
County a county illustrious for her no
ble citizens and proud of her untarnish
ed name would never permit the black
banner of repudiation to wave over them.
We cannot pretend to go into a full re
port of M'aj. Sykes' speech.
Bloody Kite by Religions I'nuntlCH
ST. LOUIS, Sept. 2 The Globe Dem
ocrat has a letter from KnseH, Arkan
sas, detailing some of the atrocities cora
mitted by a religious sect, called the Cob
bites, at a place named Gum (Springs, in
White county, it appears tea', an o:u
man named Cobb rule.-?, and is regardod
by hia followers as Jesus and obeyed ac

Mr. Blake, of El Paso, determined to as.
certain the cause of them and clear r.p
the mystery. They therelore visited the
Inr alitv. and us thev were passing a hut
from which issued strange sounds, a man
named Dover, one of the Cobbites, ae
,-rwi..l them and sa:d that (joa was in
i.hi but. and invited them to see him.
Thev aliiibted from their biiggy r.nd

by lour men, and lilake oy lour wouiol
CCT TO PIECES.
Blake broke loose from his captors aud
ran about a hundred yards, when, on
looking back, ho saw the men cutting
Humphreys to pieces with long knives.
He hastened to town and reported the-
case. A party of citizens at oneo started
tor the scene ct the disastrous murcer.
On arriving at the Springs, they found
that Humohreva bad been killed, his
head cut off auiij stick on a fence paling.
A boy ruling by had been compelled :t
get oft' his horse, bow the head th'o.'
times and utter a prayer. A parley en
sued between the lender of th citizen?
T. C. Bkkei and Dover, the Cobbite
during which the latter took Humphreys
head from the fence several times find
shook it back and forth and replaced
it on the Dalinz. at the same time order
ing the citizens to leave.
FIRED UPON BY CITIZENS
At last Dover and his crowd advanced
on Blake and his party in a menacing
manner, and the latter fired upon them
killinn too men aud wounding another
the remaining four men, fuur women and
two ehildren were arrested and taken to
jail. Other Cobbites were also arrested
aud taken to Searcy, lhere was great
excitement among the people and lynch
ing was threatened.
Next day a preliminary examination
was held, and all the parties released.
They talked incessantly about their relig
ion, and there seemed little doubt that
they were crazy from tho enects ot relig
ious excitement and starvation.
THE CORONER S INQUEST.
Later advices sav that a coroner s m-
ouest was hpld on the body of Hum
phreys and the jury returned a verdict
that I li. and J. m. Uover, ihoii. liaiii
iv and John and Elizabeth Nelson were
euiltv as principals of the murd r of
Humphreys, and John and l.ee Dove
and Clementine Dover were guilty us n-
ressories. L. B. Dover and Tho?. Gain
v were the two men killed by the
that made the arrests. Old Cobb esen
ed to the woods and at lust eecour.tj i n.
not been captured.
It appears that Cobb is from Miehr-iai.
where he taught his atrocious doctrine
until driven out. Ho first sei.tle.-l i:

and induced a few more ignorant poo;
to join them.
THE MURDER OF HUMrHHF.YK
The accounts received do no; give any
adequate reasons or caus" for the atlr.tk
upon Humphreys aud B'akc und tLe.
murder of the former; but tl:o Col-bites
seem to have been wrought upon to i:
high degree by religion oxcilemoi;? or
fren.y and were urged on by old m:in
Cobb, who had taught hi-f fbllovwra that
ho was not only Ciiric t in person, but
that be uttered the decrees of God him self,
and that anything they did was de
void of sin.

Yardley' s Caniidaey Maying a Sensation
in East Tennessee A Mveiy aoir
Among the White Radicals.
The announcement of Yardley lor Gov
ernor was the street sensation yesterday.
Nothing, since the nomination of Foote
for Elector, has so stirred up the white
Republican monkeys. Among the mem
bers ot the Ring and their adherents,
there was gnashing of teeth, .though the
colored people, we understand, generally
received the announcement with satisfac
tion. Some of the white brethren, how
ever, were eyen unkind enough to charge
that Yardley has been "bought up by
the Democrats " and his impudence in
setting himself up. as a candidate was
roundly denounced. He said he had not
consulted them, because he had long
siuce discovered that they had but little
use for a colored man, after getting his
vote on the day of election. He declar
ed his purpose to meet Gov. Porter, Co'i.
Thomas and Geu. Maney, at Lebanon, on
the 11th inst., and to proceed regularly
with his canvass through all their ap
pointments. An TJnprovoied Outbreak toy Negrees.
