KATE SOUTHERN.-Thu Columbus.
Ga., Enquirer says: We give in this
paper the evidence elicited in tins
much-talked ol' trial ol' Kalo South'
ern.- It differs ns much as light and
darkness fro II the sensational ac
counts we have been reading in cer
tain correspondence. Thora is no
thing in the scenes, thc sut roundings
nor the* incidents, to gleam a tithe of
romance. The winde was a light be
tween two women, while gallant
Hob Southern and thc rest looked on.
They were all very ignorant people,
Katu and her sister both centred on
"Sis" Cowart. There is no evidence
that the men present tried to part
thc combatants, nor docs there ap
pear to have been such a scene as
the sentimental' writers picture of
Bob, with pistol in hand, forcing
Kate's way through a crowd, All
that was thc imagination of a fancy
- ??k-cicl?cir.; ??Lu ?a o?' inodhrf?i height,
about twenty years of age, and has
dark brown hair, ano the twang crt' a
North Georgia cracker She is very
ignorant, can hardly read and write,
and Bob is worse educated than she.
Kate is passably good looking, and
wears imitation jet. She says the
witnesses swore lies against Inn-;
that she acted it) self-defence;, that j
she cannot dance, and that night at
her lather's was thc "fust time thal
she ever seed a reel run " Sin- is
now on tbe plantation ot Col. Smith,
in Washington County, and will Lc
employed in the household, cooking
and washing for the convicts who
Work ou thc plantation. The six
mouth "baby" is sick-teething
and that now requires most of her
time. She anya ito money has been,
sent her from the North, ile. health
is bad sixteen-year obi sister,
sentenced lu two years as an acc?s
sory to Kate's crime, hus been in
Col Smith's house as a servant. Shy*
IS handsome, and has been taught j >
;oud and write hy her kimi mimniir**
On hyj;Jatlier/a_hxruao&b,M **yJ-y
piough. lier sentence has provedTa
blessing. - Bob Southern is nothing
but a strong, good-looking animal--i
a oounnen, ignorant boor.. He is
now a guard to convicts on the same
plantation. The woman Kate killed
is on a par with thu rest. On lead
ing the evidence, one feels utterly dis
gusted with the amount cd sentimen
tal twaddle that hus been expended
on the case. Nut a scintilla can be i
obtained to excito a single expres
sion of admiration. Why, the par
ties surrendered! themselves to get
(he reward, and the understanding
was that. Kate's mother was to get
$f>0 of thc money. Whore oven a
fertile fancy would extract anything
ol'a romance from au atrocious crime,
we cannot imagine'. We do fist bc
Move there is a singlo woman, no
matter how wann and sympathetic
ber own heart may bc, who, after
[reading' tins sworn testimony, willi
i sign a petition for Kate Southern's
i pardon. GovcrnorColqtiitt did right, j
: Ile weighed the evidence carefully,
and displayed both justice and hu-!
j man i ty in his decision. A crime >
has been committed, a woman killed
another in her father's bouse, after!
she had been received kindly by ber j
parcnls--niid then lo demand of the
authorities that she slusl go free is j
preposterous. If such an act were :
pardoned, thc doing so would ben!
mockery of law. Crime already has j
too much licence because thc stat-,
tites are not enforced.
lliwux SACUIKICKS.-The Wilming
ton Star s:iys: The attention of sci
entists has recently been attracted to
the neighborhood of Mr A R. Black,
the sheriff o? this county .upon .Mid
dle Sound, some ten innes east of
this city, by the discovery there of
large quantities of human remains of
lan unknown race and period, scatter
ed al intervals along the ocean front
1 of this plantation. Yesterday a party
of gentlemen attended Mr. Black, at
i Iiis request, upon tin; opening ol two
mounds which he had discovered-and
which he conjectured contained some
memorials of the aboriginal inhabi
tants. Nothing unusual was lound
j in the first mound, hut tin- examina
j lion of the second resulted in a very
interesting discovery. Bigging a
circii'ar well in the cootie of the
mound, at a depth of six or 'seven
leoU there was fotiii? u circular de
posit of charred coals, mingled willi |
fragments of human bones, which
had evidently lain then: undisturbed
for a long period of time, and in their
original deposit. The gentlemen
employed veri lied portions belonging
to the human cranium, vor io bite, the
I clavicle, humerus, ulna, and pindan-j
j gus These fragments were, how-!
i ever, lo minnie for more particular |
iudeiililicaliou. Ami.ug th?: bones j
they discovered a black, glittering!
unit unknown substance resembling
mica, Which they reserved for fur- j
ther examination, and a line speci
men of brown and tianspai cut quartz. J
The persons to whom these bones be-!
longed were evidently lastoned lo-j
ge titer and burned at this spot, and
afterwards covered with soil. Who
they were, or what the occasion of
their late, is of course a matter of
conjecture. Further explorations
limy determine their race and nation. |
We believe these are the only mounds j
of this ciiajacter, and the only ev. j

upon one of the trees of the forest i

subsequent fate there is such a glow j
