SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1884.
While in Nashville the other day,
Judge Ferris, "the orphan's friend"
informed us that the Randall Cole In
dustrial School aud Farm had been
chartered and that provision would
he made to receive youths of all eex
es and colors, keeping them separate.
Workshops will he erected, a good
school opened, and everything he
made confortable. The idea is to
provide a place of correction for youth
ful and incorrigible violators of the
lw for tlje whole state, with the view
of reforming and making useful citi
zens of them, instead of sending them
to the penitentiary, where their asso
ciates would be only the hardened
adult criminals. The Judge has
worked faithfully for this scheme for
many years, and the munificent liber
,ality of Col. E. W. Cole in donating
a large and well-improved farm for
this purpose has made the plan feasi
ble. We trust the incoming legisla
ture will amend the criminal laws so
that the plans of these charitable gen
tlemen can be successfully carried out
and that a liberal appropriation may
be made for its maintenance.
At a thanksgiving sermon in
) Wheeling, West Virginia, Rev. Dr.
J. E. 'Smith "alluded to the growth
of the country, and epoka of the elecs
tion of Cleveland and the supplanting
! of a party which controlled the gov
ernment for a quarter of a century by
another party, and said that in no oth
er nation on the globe could this be
without war and bloodshed. But, he
added, there is one shame, one blight,
one crime on the present page of our
history which the Almighty will yet
wipe out as he did the former shame
aud crime, slavery. He then arraign
ed the Solid South, accusing the
Democrats of disfranchising, defraud
ing and bull dozing the blacks, and
denounced the recent alleged election
of Cleveland as fraudulent and
Mr. Lee Fitzgerald, late of the lo
cal staff of the Nashville American,
has accepted a position as assistant
editor of the Christian Advocate, of
which his father is editor. He is a
sprightly, live newspaper writer "a
chip of the old Mock' and will be a
valuable addition to the Advocate
force. His associates of the American
presented him wiih a valuable raouo-
rram diamond ring as a mark of their
esteem when he left them.
Louisville Times: Gen. Logan of
course goes down wun tne liiaine
craft; but so far he has not made him
self a confounded fool about it. Logan
has fought too many hard battles to
go on into a corner ana wnimper or
get on a platform and rave and rant
because he is beaten iu one of the
greatest contests of his life. He con
ducts himself iu the presence of defeat
like the true soldier that he is and
wins the respect of honest men of all
parties by his manly acceptance of the
But; all good men may now proper
ly, pertinently and patriotically in
. quire, whether a century's experience
does not justify a thorough coosidera
tion of the necessity for extending the
Presidential term; for withholding the
franchise from public servants; for
greatly shortening campaign periods;
aud for fixing election dates in other
than business seasons. The Current.
Congress met last Monday. It is
thought that very little busiuess will
be done before adjournment for the
holidays. Ihe Presidents message
was read and referred. It will be

the reader can digest it at his leisure.

Gov. Hamilton, of Illinois, decided
that Leman, republican, was elected
iu Chicago. This leaves the legislas
ture a tie on joint ballot.
The Vicksburg (Miss.) Herald,
Democraic. neatly retorts: "The
Cincinnati Commercial Gazette,
among other lies of wonderful dimen
sions, says there is a reign of terror in
the south. Ihe uegro laborers are
reaping a rich harvest in the cotton
and sugar fields, and they know of do
terror whatever. They are many
times better ofl than the Hocking Val
ley miuers and other fearfully op
pressed In borers in the North."
The Muifreesboro Fne Press b
serves that the Democratic party in
Tennessee at this time has too many
articles in its creed. "Its platform by
the addition of non-essentials has be
come so large that hardly any one
man can swallow it all. little things
are made tests of Democracy that
should be regard e'd as inditfereut."

Convicted on Their Own Confession.
Nashville, November 29. At
Clarksville, to-night the jury in the
caseoi w m. morrow, as principal, ana
Ransom Morrow and Dr. P. F. Bela-
my, charged with the murder of James
lirown, colored, seven years ago, re
turned a verdict of guilty of murder
in the first degree, with mitigating
circumstances. ' The jury was out
from 4 till 8 o'clock, and the result of
the trial created great excitement un
account of the high social position aud
wealth ot the accused. Ihe trial had
been in progress for a week. Many
witnesses were examined aud tne best
legal talent n Montgomery County
was represented on both sides. It was
one of the most sensational cases ever
heard iu the South. It was proved
by a witness that Wm. Morrow made
a confession as to the murder. Mor
row said that Brown had attempted
to outrage Mrs. Bellamy; that he met
Brown iu the woods, shot him six
times with a revolver and theu went
tochurch. When found the body was
partially burned, several pieces of
wood having been placed on the corpse.
Belamy was afterwards tried for the
murder and acquitted. Another wit
ness was told by fUnsnru, Morrow and
Dr. Belnmy that Wm. Morrow had
committed the deed. All the witness
es to the confession were threatened
with death if they revealed what hud
been told them. It was also sworn
that Ransom Morrow and Belamy
had induced William Morrow to kill
Brown. The defendants are also
charged with murdering Nick Over
ton, colored, and hiding bis corpse in
a cavr. liiey are also mentioned in
connection with the killing of two
men named Sligh.
Walker Blaine's Scheme.
"Walker Blaine," says a Washing
ton dispatch to the Springfield Re
publican, "is really a candidate for
the vacant judgeship of the Court of
Alabama Chums, although it is
place requiring a large knowledge of
marine law, and he never had any law
practice, save in his position as Assis
taut Attorney before this court, where
his career has been far from brilliaut.
The judgeship is worth SG.OOOayear,
The President has Ultimate! that he
will make the appointment if Mr
Blaine personally requests it. The
historian ha? been known to declare
wiihin three months 'hat he would not
enter the portals ot the White House
again during the Arthur administra
tion. Paternal affection may vet pre
vail over wounded pride."
