HONDAYrMAY 16, 1881. Georgia Affairs. Henry Moore, an Augusta drayman, on Pat _ morning drove down the street at a rap “ an ,i nearly killed a litUe child, who was f ,-tunately rescued. The Evening News states o Recorder Webb sentenced him to SSO fine sixt y days on the public works. ° xi-e Brunswick Advertiser and Appeal learns • hat Mrs Emily Martin, of Cumberland Island, r.imitted suicide one night last week by drownirg. According to the Americus Recorder _ wi ji be shortened in Sumter county by the dry snap which has prevailed in much the largest part of the county. The impres n is that crops will be shortened one fourth. Columbus was enlivened a few days ago by a c-reet fight between Bailiff Wood and Mollie Livingston, colored. The weapons used „ ere brick bats. Mollie was resisting arrest. Rome’s cotton receipts up to date this season are 107,101. Mr. Sidney Lanier is lying seriously ill at Baltimore. The Advertiser and Appeal boasts that there u t an iole carpenter in Brunswick, and Louses are looming up in every direction. Complimenting His Honor Judge Simmons on his dispatch of business, the Macon Tele 'gr,ll,h and Messenger says: “For the first time n twenty five years the civil docket of our Su perior Court is clear. When Judge Simmons came into office two years ago, there were sev en hundred cases behind. The only cases now pending are three in number, whieh were set for dates that have not yet arrived.” Ti „ Valdosta Times from a private letter irns th-t the store cf H. De Loach, of Mill ;* ‘ w pb its entire contents, including his A was burned on the night of Tuesday A* there ha 1 been no fire in the store f • weeU it is supposed that it must have the work of an incendiary. There was no insurance. With reference to trade in Darien the Tim >.r ■ \-ette remarks: “Since sur last isue • • ~re has been 12 arrivals and 7 clearances. T' re are now 52 vessels in port. The timber -•'r-ss will not end until late this season, and vessels are arriving every day. t, avs the Timber Gazette : “Dr. Barnwell has wn us a tine sample of tobacco raised on maker of Savannah at 35 cents per pound. "hi thousand pounds can be raised to the acre ‘ ,uitable land, which is equal to S7O) per a,.‘ re We think this should wake up old fogy and induce immigrants to inspect our vicinity.” The Brunswick Advertiser and Appeal re with much sati'fac ion: "Fifty-one ves . - in port last Saturday—the biggest fleet ’ er seen here at one timel True, some of tii ,■ were loaded, and two or three had re cel red their clearance papers.” There is a gentleman in Whittaker’s district, Harris county, who has twenty thousand pounds of good corn fodder to sell, and says, on a pinch, he might dispose of thirty thou sand putnis He has fodder in his barn that was raised twenty-nine years ago, when he first went to farming, and this stock has grown constantly ever since. Savs the Advei User and Appeal: “An effort ~ being maoe to organize and thoroughly equip an oyster and fish company, with headquarters in Brunswick. Its membership will embrace leading fish and oyster dealers in Atlanta and Albany and intervening towns to this city. The supply ‘s inexhaustible, and one of experience states that he can get ready cash sale for all he can get ” Albany Sexes and Advertiser : “The receipts of w <1 in Albany have been very light during the nast week, and the neason cannot be s..id to have fairiy set in yet. A lot of about 1,000 !t)S ha* been the largest quantity offered so far. for which ~5 cents was paid. This is gen c- il ■> considered to be over its actual value w';-n compared with Boston and other Eastern markets, and unless there suould be a leac n ,1, 11 tuo-e markets,this price will not be sus tai tied. A correspondent of the Bulloch Banner says: “While vi-uting.the neighborhood of Areola on last Saturday I noticed that the corn crop, though somewhat backward, appeared to be growing rapidly. The cotton crop had come up finely, and was being chopped out. The oat crop generally was unpromising, and some fields presented the appearance of having been sown with the seed of a reddish looking wee i, a few oars being iuterspersed for variety. He instances several fields, however, that are exceptions, and are looking remarkably well.’* The Lafayette t Walker county) Messenger relates the following singular circumstance; “On the 7th of May John Arnold, of the town district, went out ’possum hunting. He brought ta. af er killing the old one, six young ones as the remit. Sow comes the point. A cat that he had, seeing that the poor things were orphans, took pity on them and played the part of mother. And it is an actual fact that tie has a bunch, drove, herd, fiock, or whatever they may be, of 'possums being raised on cat’s milt.’’ The Rome Courier heralds the arrival of the lx ist-. and remarks: “Tuey have come on time, and the woods are literally alive with them. Mr. John Williams tells us that in the Arrnuchee bottoms they are coming up from the ground by millions, and that they are so noisy that it is impossible to hear one’s self talk. Mr. Williams has laid on our table speci mens of the larva; which were seen to come from the ground, and were watched uutil they split in the back, producing the full Hedged locust. It is said that during locust years fish Lite better than any other time. Tfiey make a much finer bait for arum fish than the regula tion crawfish. 1 ’ The Atlanta Post-Appeal of Saturday relates that on Wednesday night a fight occurred near the barracks between two women, and in the Recorder’s Court Friday morning it was proven that Corpora! Frank Curtis hvd helped the fight along oy encouraging one of the vcmeu and disparaging the powers of the other. Recorder Mi ledge fiued the Corporal twenty-five dollars, but as he only gets thirteen and Vilats a month pay, and spends taal rather lively, he could no-pay, and he is now work ing out his tine in the chain-gang.” With reference to the Tecumseh furnace the Rome Courier remarks: “The furnace at this place is making an average of twenty tons per day, and has beeo running on the same hearth for six years, having never been cool in that :eugth of time, which speaks volumes for our s.i (jerjntenicat. General Warner, and reflects uo little credit on oqr foqndryuian, Mr. R B. White. The Teeumoeh Iron Company has jiu,t finished two churches, one for white and one for the colored people, which adds very much to the place.” Brunswick Advertiser and Appeal reports that on Sunday, the etii inst., the residence of Col. J. T. Collins, in that town. was discovered to be on fire “The fire originated over tne kitchen. in rear of and attached to the bouse, and is supposed to have tak-n from some de fect in the Hue. The kitchen and house were both metal roofed, and tlje fire, as it could not g, vent, after bally burning under the roofs of both main building and kitchen, was extin guished by superhuman exertions. ihe peril being so imminent, however, the furniture and fixtures, doors, sash, mantels, grates and everything that could begotten out, was removed. Colonel Collins had svot:o in surance on the buildings in the Insurance Com pany of North America, and $2,601) on furni ture. et in the Southern Mutual, of Athens, Georgia.” The Wiregrass Watchman reports that a fracas occurred at Hazlehurst on Saturday,the "th >t.. in which a negro, Duncan Lowry, sr -ili-. i The Watchman says: “We have i>.

Some two months ago a negro woman, whose name we have been unable to find out, persuaded another negro woman in Madisou to allow her to take her child, a girl some six years old, to see her sister living in EatontoD, but instead of going to Eatonton she by some means slipped up to Monroe and hired to Mr. Thos. H, Phillips, where she kept the child as a nurse. The mother, aft.-r searching in vain through several counties, heard of her child, and arming a bailiff with a warrant, sent him to Monroe, where he cabbaged the kidnapper and carried her to jail in Morgan county to answer the grave charge.” The Columbus Enquirer-Sun inaugurates the snake campaign for the season with the fol lowing: “It is rather early in the spring to begin on snake stories, but one of our prominent hardware merchants repeated one yesterday, as told by a gentleman who lives a few miles in the country. He states that his wife had a hen and chickens which she allowed to roost in a room in the house which was not much used. In the room was an old sofa, which was so worn as to be unfit for use. The ladv, for several mornings, had missed some of the chickens, and missed them one at a time, until they were nearly all gone. Ore day she had occasion to lift the cushion from the old sofa, and the mystery was explained. Upon the sofa and under the cushion was a snake which measured twenty-seven inches around, and was seven feet in length. Our hardware merchant did not see the snake measured, but in justice to the friend who told the tale, states emphat ically that he was not drinking.” Discussing Get man carp, the Columbus En quirer-Sun says: “Some months ago a num ber of German carp were placed in various ponds near the city. This species of fish is very prolific, but they have proved extraordi narily so in the btick yard ponds. Here they are said to have greatly increased A few, measuring five to six inches in length, have been caught in seines. They were not held in much estimation in ancient days, and were intro luced in England about three hundred yars ago. Carp prefer quiet waters with soft or ti.uddv bottoms, spawning in May or June, according to locality. The food consists of ins- cs, worms and sft plants, though they eat almost any vegetable food in artificial ponds. They are very tenacious of life, and will pass long periods, especially in winter, without food. They afford but little sport to the angler, being very uncertain and are difficult te take in nets. The size varies from six inches to two and one-half feet, and their weight from one to eighteen pounds They are in season from October to April, and are generally considered excellent for the ta ble. The carp is in shap - something similar to the perch, although their body is longer and more slender. They are of a golden, olive brow n color above, yellowish beneath, and the fins dark brown. They live to a considerate age. An account of the death of a carp in France which was over fovr hundred years old has been going the rounds of the papers.” A correspondent of the Augusta Evening Sexes, writing from Buckhead, Morgan county, reports that “on the 12th inst., about 2 o’clock p. m , there was a most horrible murder com mitted on the chain gang farm of Mr. W. H. McWhorter, six miles north of this place, in Greene county, the victim being Mr. E. T. Langston, a young man highly respected by ail who knew him, the facts of which are as follows: Mr. Langston was guarding three convicts named Willis Wynn, Jim Allen and Joe Harris, all colored, hoeing corn, when he unthoughtedly laid his gun on the ground, and took Joe’s hoe to show him how he wanted the corn lioed When ne had gone but a few steps from where he had left the gun, Jim Alien managed to fad behind until Jlr. L. had passed him, then with his hoe dealt him a blow that kno .ked him to the ground. Sir. Langston managed to recover, thougn very badly hurt, and started for his gun, but was too late. Jim Allen managed to reach it about the same time. Mr. L. attempted to escape by retreating, leaving the gun in Jim’s possession. When he had retreated some twenty feet or more, he was fired on, the shot taking effect in the back of his head, producing instant death. Jim and Joe both left, taking eeparate directions, and. it is thought, carried the dogs along with them, as they could not be found until too late to pursue them. Jim Allen is about twenty-one years of age, about five feet eleven inches high, and weighs about one hun dred and sixty-five. Joe Harris is about eighteen years old, very black, we : ght abrnt one hundred and forty. Jim is considered a very bad negro, and will doubtless be very troublesome to arrest. Mr. Langston leaves a wife and two children, one just four weeks old. The citizens are doing all in their power to cap ture them. Governor Colquitt was notified by to-Jay’B mail, and will, it is thought, offer a reward for Jim Allen’s arrest.” A Red Bluff correspondent of the Eastman Times writes ti.at “On Monday night, the 2d inst., a party of masked men went to the home of Jerry Hamilton, a colored man employed on the plantation of Mr. Asa Adams, took him out of his house, carried h m about a quarter of a mile away, and then after beating and stamp ing him in a most horrible manner, it is sup posed they threw him into a branch near by, believing ha was dead. Here he was found next morning by his wife, alrnpst ir a lifeless state. He had crawled upon a log. where he was reclining with his feet t nd a portion of his body still in the water. He died that day, talking some before his death, and it is said tnat he told his wife the names of several of the party, whom he recognized only by their voioas, as ail were masked These names, so far as known to the writer, have not been revealed. 1 suppose there was an inquest held over the body, but have heard nothing of the evidence nor of the verdict of the jury. There is considerable excitement prevailing in the community, as Jerry was a peaceable, hard working negro, and no cause is assigued upon which to predicate a reason for the enactment of this awful deed. Hopes are entertained that everyone concerned in this affair wll be made to suffer the e+treme punishment that should be mettd out to all perpetrators of such sickening outrages. Jerry leaves a large fa jiily, veveral unable to work, and bis death to them is a sad loss The MaoVHle South Geor gian states that a mass meeting was held at Mount Vcrpop on tfte 10th ihst, of white and colored citiz-ns, and resolutions were adopted denouncing the atroci us crime, pledging united efforts for the detection of the fiends, and tendering sympathies and relief to the family of the unfortunate victim.” Florida Affairs.

Speaking of the Florida influx, the Augusta Sews remarks: “A large number of valuable settlers are going to Florida every week. That State is destined to become a great one in the years to come. It offers charming homes, and the most of It is healthful.” Tampa Tribune: “The withdrawal of the odd sections of United States lands in these southern counties from market seems likely to vitiate the titles of homesteaders who have homesteaded on the odd sections since 1875. Trouble may be antieioated.” With reference to the future of Jacksonville, the Union remarks: “The present activity in railroad building is simnly wonderful. Before two years Jacksonville will be in communica tion with the Pacific bv almost a direct line aloog the Gulf coast and through Mexico. If our bar improvements should be as successful as we hope, who can foretell the bright future that awaits us?” The Floridian remarks of the St. Marks and Tal shassee Railroad: “This track is just now one of tbe most remarkable pieces of patch work of its kind extant. The wheels sometimes iuinn gaps in the iron several inches wide, and hold the crooked rails with marvelous tenacity in places where the ends branch off from the Joint toward Apalachicola so much that they look like switches. In one place the ancient ties have all disappeared, and the iron seems to lie directly on the sand. Near Belair the track for one or two miles is made of scraps from two to fixe feet in length.’ Montieello Constitution: “Upon the authori ty of a negro residing over the Aucilla river, the statement has gained credence that imme diately after the execution of Andrew Fell, a number of negroes had a meeting and organ ized a ‘League.’ each member of which is sworn to protect each other from arrest, and also to shield Peter Kennedy, who. It is affirm ed is still Bring and concealed in that sec: ion of’the county. Major Bellamy, who lives in the very centre of the numerous colored popu lation over the Aucilla, and employs more col ored laborers than any other man in Florida, we understand, says he has heard no Intima tion of the organization of a League for the purpose designated.’’ Wi'h reference to tbe Okeechobee scheme tne Union states that Colonel Coryell has re turned from Indian river.

The inhabitants on the whole route showed much enthusiasm ojor the prospects of the outlet to be made to that vast and productive region, which priva “pn has operated against the settlement of that desirable section. The Jacksonville Union reports that while Mr. R. Boulter, seventy years old, who has charge of Hunter & Son’s mill, was standing In front of what is known as the “butter,” a saw used in squaring the ends of lumber, which was revolving with great rapidity, a piece of plank that had been sawed off caught in some way and fell squarely upon the saw, and the rapid motion of the saw threw it off with great *orce. It struck Mr. Boulter on the right leg, about two and a half inches below the knee, cut through the flesh and crushed both bones down about four inches. The Drs. Mitchell were telephoned for, and, on their arrival at the mill, they had the unfortunate gentleman placed upon a Utter and carried home, when an examination of the wound and fracture was made. Several large pieces of the bones were round to be detached from the muscles, and were taken out. The teg was then put in a piaster of Paris splint and arranged so that the wound can be examined and dressed daily. A probably fatal cutting scrape occurred re eently at Apalachicola, of which the Columbus ,Ji?^l rer ' :iun Rives the following particulars: WAite tbe steamer T. H. Moore was lying at the Apalachicola wharf, a negro came aboard and raised a difficulty with Joe Gabriel, the ■”' er J lan - He abused Joe for some time, and the latter repeatedly warned him to go ashore and cease cursing. The negro, however, paid no attention to the warning, but continued using bad language to Joe. who, tiecoming en raged, attempted to strike the Apalachicola negro, when he drew a knife. He advanced a few steps, when Joe knocked him, and, secur ingthe knife, used it on his antagonist with probably fatal effects. After cutting two or u 6 ® , time3 itl the breast and side, he threw the salt water darkey overboard, but he suc ceeded in reaching the shore. When the steamer left he was dying. Captain Moore, en , tlle Steamer was a short distance from the wharf, was hailed by the Mayor of Apa lachicola, and he returned. There being no warrant for the negro, and no officer present, cne boat aeaio shoved off, and came to this city with Joe Gabriel on board.” The Tallahassee Economist reports that “on Tuesday night, th* 11th inst., the crib of Mr. John R. Crump was prized open and eighteen or twenty barrels of corn in the ear stolen therefrom The thieves were tracked to a point m the road about a quarter of a mile distant to a wagon, and the wagon tracked to the crib of John Jenkins, Sr., colored, into which the corn was thrown. E-quire Conner, of Centreville, has issued a warrant, under which Jenkins and his sons Israel and John, were arrested, tried by a jury of three whites and three blacks and convicted. Tbe old man was sentenced to a fine of $lO and costs, or, in lieu thereof, sixty days in Chaires’ camp; and the two sons *5 each with costs, and, in lieu thereof, thirty days each with Chaires. The fines and costs— cos's amounting to $33 30—were paid by Mr T. J. Roberts, who had been advancing to them. The old man had previously enjoyed an excel lent reputation. The supposition is that he stole the corn with a view of realizing money to assist in the defense of another son, now under arrest at Enterprise, in Volusia county, for stealing money from a house into which he had broken.” TALBOT TON, BA. A Lead OH'for One of the Prettiest Towns In the Empire State. Talbotton, Ga., May 13.— Editor Morning Sexes:— lt is natural for a man to love his home. The creature who cares nothing for his own vine and fig tree is unworthy of tha sweet influence of a family home an! fireside. It is also natural for one to praise the place of his nativity; how proudly the American doffs his hat to the stars and stripes and exclaims: “This is my own, my native land ” God Al mighty has planted in almost every breast a love for localities and places of permanent abode. We of Georg ia believe and know that we have tha grandest State and country in the known world, an iwe of the bright, happy, healthy and growing town of Talbotton, coun ty of Talbot, State of Georgia, feel and know that we have'tha most attractive town within the borders of our own sunny Southland, Talbotton has recently emerged from the dusky shades of dormant energies into the glorious sunlight of a bright future, crowneJ with many prospects for brilliant commercial and social achievements. Without railroad communication, she has been cooped up like a snail in his shell through the snows and sleets of a long winter, but now the sun has shone out, the earth is warmed, and a few weeks ago a screaming, puffing, blowing steam locomo tive. with a train of cars, ran over the old snail shell and broke it into a thousand pieces, killed the snail, and brought our glorious little town out of the kinks. Yes, we now have rail road communication with the ou'side world, and we are beginning to feel the spirit of enterprise that always comes with such a thing as a cteam railway. We have a good town, a fine section of country, and we are willing that the balance of mankind should Know it, and come and see us, and, if they like us, con e and live with us. Talbotton is situated among the grand old red bills of the State, about 70 mites northwest of Macon, and about 39 miles northeast of Co lumbus, in the good o!d county of Talbot, which stood tentn in population and wealth be fore the war in the Stare. We are in Middle West Georgia, the healthiest section in tbe world. We are free from malaria of all kinds: agues, chills, fevers, dyspepsia, and kindred diseases are unheard of. Sandflies and mos quitoes can’t live with us, and th**re isn’t a go pher in the county. Our climate is as salubri ous as an elysian zephyr, containing nothing obnoxious Go the health of any one; on the contrary, its gentle mountain breezes bear upon their bosoms hea kh-givir.g balms an! iife-sustaiuing powers. Our water is pure, sparkling and as cold a>j ice; no need for arti ficial cooling of Talbotton water. To drinjt it is to drink what rightfully seems to be the sweet nectar of life, imparting health apd vigor to all who quaff it. The waier is the purest free stone, with now and then a well of pure chaly beat?, the finest tonic In the world. There is a well of chalybeate water on our public square. Just twelve miles north of us are the beauti ful Oak and Pine Mountains, from whose sum mits come to us the gentle breezes. Among these mountains nestle two of our grandest Georgia summer resorts—Chalybeate Springs and Warm Springs, the latter being, per haps. the greatest wonder in the State. These springs are run e'*ery sea;cn, and hav<, as many visitors as they can take care of. Messrs. Thompson & Cheney are proprietors of the Chalvbeate Springs, and they expect five hun dred visitors this season. Col John L. Mustian is still running the hotels at Warm Springs, and he is alwavs crowded. Chalybeate Springs are lust fnrrteep miles, and Warm Springs tweity one fiiiies froifi Talbotton. The soil of talbotton and surrounding coun try is as fine as can be found in the South. We can raise anything that grows. All the cereals thrive here, such as corn, wheat, oats, barley, rye, etc. Cotton, of course, is produced abun dantly. Fr,.its or all idndo grow p per£ectibn, especially peacbd3,*apples' and grapes. 1 With all these advantages, Talbotton is one of the most pleasant summer retorts |n the whole country. We have just erected hepe, by Capt S. W. 3 nornvon. a lafge eud elegant Ho tel at a cost ot $20,000. It is kept in splendid style by Capt. Thornton and his estimable lady, and the way-worn pilgrim, commercial or otherwise, can here find a hotel wi'h all the joys and comfo'ts of a home. Besides the Thornton House, there is the Honey House, and many excellent private fa;:,iL,s where eo&rd can be liad for the refugee from the crowded city, in the heat of summer. * A few words as to Talbotton’s commercial importance.

J. Weekes is the oldest merchant here, carries a stock of gen eral merchandise of about f2\ooo to Capt. 8. W. Thornton has the largest and handsomest store in any country town in Georgia. I don’t except any. His storeroom is 60x80, with bisement, and is arranged after the style of large New York retail stores. He carries a stock of about $30,000. Of other merchants, we have in dry goods, T. N. Ileali. C W. A H. B. Kimbroug and W. A. Daniel & Son, who all carry good stocks, lu hardware we have H. L. McLendon, with a fine and well assorted stock. In groceries, we have a unrnber, with Ragland & Cos. in the lead, with the laigest stock of groceries seen in any small town in Georgia. We have a fine furni ture and buggy and carriage store, kept bv W. E. Williams & Cos. Besides all these, we have good l very stables, good carriage and buggy shops, flouring and grist mills, etc., efa Our town is growing rapidly in a coiqmerpial poitip of view, and next fall we will get on a regular boom. We expect to get at least 10,000 bales of cotton. I cannot close without saying something of our schools and churches. We are well off in this respect. We are blessed with Le Vert College and Collinsworth Insti tute, the former a female and the latter a male school. Both are under the charge of splendid teachers and well patronized. There ts no better point in the South for good schools than our town. Our churches are Methodist, Baptist and Episcopal. They are well attended and offer the best religous tpd vantages. Our town has a bright future. Every day strangers are coming m here, looking for loca tions; attracted hither by oqr many advan tages of health, climate, soil, location, etc. Let them come There is room and a welcome for all. W. E. M. A Serious Charge Against General Sherman. Chicago Tribune. General Sherman gave to the United Service Magazine a reason for violating Halleck’s orders “to concentrate, keep together, and intrench, until Buell hati joined his forces at Pittsburg Lauding with Grant,” which is not only a con fession of disobedience of Halleck’s or ders, but is equivalent to a plea of guilty of a deliberate purpose to sacrifice the army. Says Sherman: “It was necessary that a combat, fierce and bitter, to test the manhood of two armies, should come off; and that was as good a place as any. It was not then a question of military skill and strategy, but of courage and pluck.” “That is to say,” remarks the Cincin nati Gazette, “it was necessary to expose our new volunteers, without organisa tion as an army, without dispositions to enable them to form a defensive and mutually supporting line, without posi tiona or preparation for a battle, and without a commanding General, to be attacked by an army having all these conditions, in order to show to ‘our en emies that, rude and untutored as we then were, we could fight as well as they.' Reasons so wild as this only increases the darkness on this affair.” &ottmtrria!. SAVANNAH MARKET. OFFICE OF THE MORNING NEWS, I Savannah, May 14, 1881, 4 p. n.)
