The roport of the comptroller general
makes some radical suggestions for
changing the Insurance laws. It says
the revenues from insurance are far
lets here than from the same source in
other States. The report iustances
where a large amount of business es
capes taxation. The remedy suggested
for the present non-protection to the
assured in cases of losses when contest
ed and judgments obtained, Is that
small doposits of South Carolina bonds
be made uy each company. This would
also prevent wild cat companies enter
ing the State. The suggestion is uiade
that, all companies be charged the sanie
fees that a South Carolina company
would be by the State incorporating
such companies. A soparate Insurance
department is advocated, an iDsurance
commissioner to be appointed, with the
power of a bank examiner. Building
nnd loan associations and foreign land
and loan associations should be classed
with insurance companies and made to
contribute their portion of the taxes.
The law should be so amended that every
class of business entering the state can
be made to pay tribute.
The comptroller says in sevoral In
stances the settlements of county treas
urers nave not proved satisfactory.
Numerous errors have been detected,
and in some cases inaccuracies and
misappropriations were found, and in
others shortages of treasurers, and in

been turned over to the. courts for strict

Tli* 1'rtuo of Cotton.
Atlanta, Nov. 18.?It seems that
there is no end to tho fall in tho price
of cotton. There was a drop of six
points more up to noon. The price at
noon of Januaur cotton was 7.78 cents
per pound. The day before it was 7.84.
The closing price was 7.81. Tho decline
has been steady. There's no ? telling
how much lower it will go, as the re
coipts are steadily increasing.
To-day's estimated receipts are 82,000
bales. The receipts to-day a year ago
were 50,000 bales only, a difference of
215,000 bales. The difference in price is
2 cents less than to-day ono year ago.
"I believe that it will prove a bless
ing in dlsguiso to the farmers," said a
prominent cotton buyer to a reporter.
'?It will lead thoin to plant more corn
and rye. They ought to bo planting
rye right now. It is the surest, winter
crop, and brings good prices. There
are many interesting phases to the sit
uation. The heavy receipts are un
doubtedly the cause of the rapid de
cline. It reached within two points of
this price last year. With heavy crops
two years it is natural that, tho price
should drop a little. I don't believe it
will fall much lower, the bottom has
about been reached. I have known the
time when I sold cotton for livo cents
a pound, and thought 1 was doing well,
but provisions were proportionately
cheap. The farmers will learn a lesson
and prolit by this experience.
A l'athutio Scene.
Charleston, s. c, Nov. 18.?in the
Session Court today quite a pathetic
scene took place. At 2 o'clock several
convicts were brought in for sentence.
The ilrst of these was Falcone Aasuin
ta, who killed a brother countryman at
the Line street depot some months ago.
Assumta, with whom there is much
sympathy in tho community, was sen
tenced to live years in the penitentiary
at hard labor. It was pathetic in the
extreme to note his expression when
sentence was passed upon him. He
can neither speak nor understand one
word of English, and tho court spoke
through an interpreter. Assamta is a
line-looking young fellow, of perhaps
thirty. When the interpreter said "at
hard labor," the prisoner started and
clasped his hands. "I cannot do hard
labor," he told his Interpreter; "I have
never been used to carrying rock."
Then tapping his forehead, he continu
ed: "Ask his honor to give me some in
tellectual labor, and,if necessary, a long
er term. I am not a common laborer in
my native land." The judge seemed
touched, and explained to the prisoner
that "hard labor" was a law term that
did ?ot necessarily mean the handling
of rocks and stones.?State.

Calcutta, Not. 10.?Ae further de
tails regarding the cyclone which passed
over tills part of India Monday of last
week are received it is* seen that the
dam age dene is very extensive. Besides
the loss of seventy-seven hvoa by the
sinking of the Indian governmentsteam
er "Enter urisc" which foundered at the
Audaman islands and the killing of sixty
convicts there is no doubt largo loss of
life at other places along the coast.
Advices from various parts of Orissa, a
proylnce of India in Bengal, stale that
the cyclone passing over that section of
conn try did great damage. The eastern
part of the province referred to lies
along the shores of the Bay of Bengal
and this section was therefore exposed
to the full lury of the gale which seemed
to gather force as it swept across tho
bay* T- e cyclone cleared the path
through tho forests, uprooting gigantic
trees aud hurling them aside as though
they were reeds. No house could stand
the tcrriblo energy .of the gale aud every
dwelling or other structure In the path of
the cyclone was either swept from its
foundations or literally picked up, turned
over aid deposited at some distance from
the place where it had originally stood.
Tho wind also did much damage in the
vicinity of Calcutta or at least below
that city. As is well known, Calcutta
is the seal ot an immense trade by sea
and river, being the natural outlet, for a
trade of the great valleys of tho Gauges
and Hrannah Pootra. The city is sit
uated on 'the east bank ot tho lloogley
river, the westernmost branch of tho
Ganges. Tho Hoogly river empties iuto
the bay of Bengal through a number of
mouths, the Delta being tea miles
across. A large number of vessels were
at anchor oil' tho mouths of the river,
some waiting tor an opportunity to as
cend while others wero awaiting a fair
I wind to put to sea. These vsssela wero
iu such a position that when the gale
suddenly burst it was impossible to save
many oi thoai. Numbers dragged their
anchors aud wore carried ashore, while
others, moro fortunate iu their holding
ground, wero uuuinyed by tho pouuding
, they received by tho euormous seas
which accompanied the storm. No es
timate can as yet bo made of the total
' loss, but from all the details received it
Is known positively that tho number oi'
persons drowned or killed by falling
trees or flying debris is very large.

A Horrible Crime.
IrWIHTON, Ga., Nov. 10.?News has
reached hero of one of the most brutal
mnrdois that has occurred in Wilkin
son county for many years. Mrs. J, M.
Knight, tue wife of a prosperous farm
er living about flvo miles from this
place, was murdered in her house, which
was afterward robbed and burned to
the ground. Early in the morning Mr.
J. M. Knight, accompanied by his two
grown sons, went over to a neighbor's
living about three-quarters of a mile
away, to assist in making sj rup. At
10 o'clock they saw smoke In the direc
tion of their home and they left imme
diately, reaching home in timn to And
it enveloped in flames. Hushing into
the house, they found the body of Mrs.
Knight lying in a pool of hleod, but tho
(lames had gained such headway that
they were unable to roach the body.
There it remained until the house was
burned. It Is supposed that after Mr.
Knight and his sons had left, the bur
glar entered the house, but was sur
prised by Mrs. Knight, returning from
the cowpen, where she had been milk
ing; and that the burglar killed her and
burned tho house in order to hide all
proof of his guilt. A hatchet and chisel
which had been left by Mr. Knight on
tho perch wore missing. The hatchet
was found near the body of Mrs. Knight
und the chisel near one of the truuks.
A party of gentleman from this place
went over to the scene of the tragedy.
The remains of Mrs. Knight wore taken
from the ruins. Nearly the entiro body
was consumed, except a part of her
back and head. Her hair, being clotted
with blood, was not burned. No cluo
to tho perpetrator of this flondlsh act
has been found as yet. The murderer

A Northernpt'? i:?tfm*te of UU Character
The following is *m extract from an
article written for Harper's Magazine
for November. Tbe article is entitled
"Stonewall" Jackson and was written
by Dr. 11. H. Field:
Tbe midsuinruer of this year wit
nessed a scene in the inountaiua of Vir
ginia that recalled the events of a past
generation. The 21st of July was the
thirtieth anniversary of Dull Hun,
where North and South met in the lirst
real battle of war, fof the engagements
in West Virginia, near the Ohio, hard
ly rose to the dignity of battles. Hut
Bull Hun was a conflict of armies, in
which both sides took their first lessous
in war, and out of which caaie at least
one great seldier, who stood so firmly
while tbe battle raged around him that
others who were broken aud dismayed
took courage as they saw his unshaken
column standing "like a stonewall,"
from which he received the name
"Stonewall" Jackson. This was the
hero to whom a monument Is now to bo
unveiled in Lexington, where he is
buried. Of Uiose whostood beside him
on that bloody day thirty years ago, al
most all had followed him to the grave,
but the survivors, the shattered wrecks
of war, came from far and near to do
honor to him who once led them to bat
tle, and wept with overpowering emo
tion at the grave of their belovod com
- The demonstration furnishes an oc
casion for a northerner to givo his opin
ion of this extraordinary man. The
wears that baye passed have removed
us so far from the great, tragedy, of the
war, and from the passion it aroused,
that we can do justice oven to those
who were in arms against us; and no
one can read the history of Stonewall
Jackson ,without recognizing in him
all the qualities that go to make a pop
ular hero. As a soldier some com
petent critics rank him as the first the
war produced on either side. Not that
he was at-the head of the largest army,
or undertook the most extensive unill
Itary operations, bet that with the
means that he had, he accomplished
more than any other commander. He
had made a study of tho campaigns of
Napoleon, and saw that success lay not
merely in having "the strongest battal
ions," but in secrecy of designs and ra
pidity of execution.
In the latter he outdid even Napo
leon himself, training his men to such
a pitch of endurance that he could
"rush" them twenty-live miles a day
over a broken country, across rivers
and over mountains, aud fight a battle
as the sun was going down. Nothing
in the war gave more decisive proof of
military genius than tho campaign in
tho Shenandoah Valley in the spring of
1802?tho only one which he conducted
absolutely alone, with no Interference
from those above him?where he was
pitted not against one army, but four,
under Banks, Fremont, Shields and
Milroy,, advaucing upon him from dif
ferent quarters, and ontmameuvered
them all, attacking and defeating each
in turn till he drove them, one alter
auother, out of the valley, when he gave
all tho slip and, crossing the Blue Bulge
in one of his rapid inarches, suddenly
appeared on the Hank of MoCiellau's
army before Richmond. That decided
the 1'oninsular campaign, when, he
turned north, and by a bold movement
throw himself between Tope and Wash
ington,aud thesocond Bull Run proved
far moro bloody than the first.
All this is matter of history, which it
is not necessary to recall, nor to follow
the tiroless soldier to Harper's Perry, to
Antietapi, to Frodericksburg and Chan
cellors Vi He, where ho fell at the very
moment that the groat Hank movement
which he had conceived and conducted
had struck the Uniou army with a
shock from which it reeled and could
not recover, but sought safety on the
other side of tho Rappahannock, which
it had crossed only a few days before in
all tho confidence of victory. This is a
record of continued success winch it is
hard to find another example in our
own history, or, indeed, in any othor.
Rrutal Attack on Sam Small*.
Atlanta Nov. 12.?Thero was a
short but lively light in N ash's barber

Small, the well known evangelist and
one of tho leaders of tho anti-barrom
movement, and Thomas A. Minor, a
BHloon keeper at 1!W Deoatur street.
Certain ' allusions which Mr. Small
had made in his public speeches at Pro
hibition ball about Mr. Minor and his
saloon are what brought about the at
tack. It lasted only *bout half .a min
ute, and was over before anyone out
side of the barbershop could have their
Mr. Small was seen and- asked about
the difficulty, and said:
"He dldn t hurt mo much, lor I held
up my arm this way and warded off
tbe blows. Pretty soon we clutched
and fell to the floor. I w.ts under the
man. The barber here pulled htm off
and as ho went out ot the door he said:
T reckon you'll Know Tom Minor
"Do you know what he attacked you
for?" was asked.
"Yes. I stated in my speeches at
prohibition hall tint I hud been tnld
that policemen were stationed in front
of Minor's saloon on Docatur street to
take care of the bums that canto out."
"Did you know MinorV"
No; never saw him before."
Was nothing olso said?"
No, that's all."
Mr. Smails stood up to have the dust
brushed off his clothes and then walken
out of the barbershop with his gold
spectacles in his hand.
