credited. Ve know that desertions

could, escape to tbe rear. In this.- how
ever, we jvere, jn'ataken. It seems that
tbe State of Georgia is overrun with de-
8ertrs, and that-they are, in fact, an, army
ofrJestifuction. The Georgia Militia in
Hood'aj army 'have been fnrlongbed for
thirty days, and the object, as stated, is
to arrest deierters. Upon this pointyve
copv the followinff article from a recent
number of the' Sonthern Confederacy,'
which is now published at Macon, (ia.:- .

While editors at a distance from Law
rence sflect surprise thatiLsne, should. be
connected witht a. cowhiding affair at
Washington for" his lecherous practices,
wo are- surprised that any' one should be
so ignorant, as not do know that such
conduct is a matter of course with Lane,
and especially are we. surprised that hia
own papers" should attempt 0 denial of
ujr uimrgo 01 mat' sinn. in tms town
hia followers boast that he is tbe greatest
libertjna iq theconntry,' and regard tbis
as.one a;gnmentjn,hls favor. : We bad
suppo'sed that his character in this respect
was well known, at least-'throughout the
Statr.-butifnotitis timeMt' should be.
If any igood men. are- supporting this
debauchea.ignQrantly;. thsirj eyes shonld
plead isnorance
ot his- trner character. Weuwill relate
nothing that cannot be proved, and that
has not been subject of common remark
in this .community. His secret. acts we
will not disturb, for Qod knows his, pub
lic debsncherie9"are bad enough.'
We especially call the attention of pro
fessed Christians and ministers of tbe
gospel, uho make it their business to
teachmoralily and religion, to this narra
tive. 1 Also wo ask fathers and mothers if
they want to indorse such a man by their
votes before their sons and daughters.
We will not attempt to give all tbe
cases of criminality known in tbis place,
as we do not wish to pollute onr paper
with their rehearsal. -
.The first we will name u the case of
Mrs. Lindsay, of this city. Mr. Lindsay,
the husband, was threatening to 'shoot
Lane for attempting to commit a 'rape
npon bis wife. Lane sent for bis neigh
bors to protect him against Lindsay and
bush tbe matter up. Persons in tho hpnse
at the time said that Mrs. L. went to
Lane's room'to look after his little1 boy,
not knowing that Lane bad returned
home. Lane caught her and attempted
violence, when her- husband came npon
them, pane told the neighbors that it
snouia not ns canea a rape, as ne naa
been intimate with ber for months, and
that it was in consequence of this intU
macy his own wife had left him. This
occurred just before the assembling" of
ine'-xopena vjonsiiimionat uonyemion.
Lane,- a memberfof tbis Convention; urged
that he should be elected President of it,
to show to the world that they did not
believe the report. He' challenged yonng
ijowrey longnia auei oecause ne naa re
peated the facts -in th case. Very- unex
pectedly to Lane, Lewrey determined to
fight mm, amTLane ingloriouily backed
;dYwn. ,,,,
Soon after this, Lsnetook to his honse
the notorious womannwhb called herself
Mrs.-Bnffum. He lived with her in a
most shameless manner. After a while.
she demanded pay for her services,, and
Lisne, ai nsaai, nad no money, one
challenged him repeatedly to a duel, and
finally followed him throngh the streets
with a pistol. Lane finally called npon
nome of our citizens to gst him ont of
this scrape. 'It may be said that this
was a long time ago, and Lane may have
reformed since. Bat it is notorious that
there is no improvement in his career.
We will not enumerate his amours, his
bastards, nor' his 'debaucheries, as thev
are disgusting to' relate. We will close
the list by referring to a shameless act
only j, few months since. Ate mid-day,
in tbe open grounds of tbe city, he met a
low, dirty creature, and one of our most
reliable citizens witnessed in" the brush a
scene too'disgosting to relate. c
., ' At Washington! his conduct isjo -t;
ier. vyo aavn iniormauon, ana, can inr
nisb the evidence if desired,' that this
beast oses a room' in tbe Capitol for par-
poses, of assignation. Wheni a woman
calls, npon Lane for a favor, hedirecta her
10 oe snown 10 mis room. j.na ennous
attendants made an, opening to ascertain
what Dablic business was ' carried" "tou 'by
tbis Senator. with. ibis" constituents, and
they, found that in 1 every case Lane at
tempted liberties with these women.
This course was practiced for months.
Such a man represents Kansas in tbe
United States' Senate, and snch a man,
to our.own shsmebe it said, is supported
by protested unritusns. una 01 two
things' will soonv lake place In Kansas,
either ministers and professed Christians
will repudiate Lane, i or the people will
mock at them, and they will become a
by-word in the community. Mr. Moore
appropriately described Lane, when be
said be was a politician withont brains,
a libertine withont taste, and a murderer
withont remorse; and whoever sustains
such a.man. whether professed Christian
or infidel, will be justly charged with
giving countenance to the crimes of which
he is ailty.- ita-Tc Journal. '

sweat, he arrived on tbe 8 tV Charles Hd:
tel corner. The ferry-boat was on "t'other
side of Jordan," and the owner, of the
precious mirror was thirsty therefore tlje
mirror wss stood up "against tbe hotel
stoop on the sidewalk, and a small boy
was bidden to watch it while the owner
stepped into the St. Charles bar to get
"sntbin to cool hisself with." At , this
nnlucky moment, a large billy goat,
whiebjenjoyi tbe freedom of the city, and
is familiar to all tbe residents in that vi
cinity for its famous "backing' power,
came leisurely along the, sidewalk. The
small boy in cbsrge of the mirror fled on
double qnick, in Berious apprehension of
being "backed." The goat kept"on''hig
career until be caught sight of- another
goat reflected in tbe polished surface of
the glass. Then be stepped back, some
dozen feet, reached aloft his caudal ap
pendage, gave three or four preliminary
shakes of the .head, aad rushed on bit
shadowy adversary withvthe power of

though be was in the Sandwich Islands
at tbe time it occurred and secme4 to
have a general and pretty correct know

have gathered from the casual perusal of
newspapers. .
He was educated, in the Catholic faith;
renounced it after coming to tbe United
States, and became ra.ber an Infidel. In
1853, he crosscd'the'plains to California.
A few years later,;whilst in Mexico and
devoting much of hisUitne.to.the nemsal
of Infidel works, he was tho subject of a
miracle, accompanying which there ad.
peered visionno less'tbar. the hand of
God. He was reluctant to believe ; but
other mirjtples and visions' followed, until
he became' convinced, that he was singled
ont "as the especial mark of T) ivine favor.
About four years ago, while at Olympia,
Washington Territory, be concluded thai
he was Christ, and took the name he now
Since that time, he has been travelling
up1 and down the Pacific coast. In May
last, he was upon tho Sandwich Islands.
After returning, he started past, stopping
for awhile in San Francisco, Sacramento,
PIscerville, Virginia, Austin, and Salt
Lake. He usually travels on foot, though
he got a pass on the coach from Green
River to this city. When out of money,
he stops and works. He says he helped
to make bay at Fort Bridger for a week,
and now wants work here. Hs is en
route for Washington, to see the Presi
dent, after which he expects to go to En
rope, and visit Borne, Jerusalem, and
other ancient cities and lands of tlieiast.
This singular man seems sincerely im
pressed with tbe belief.tbat he is the Sa
viour of the world. In conversation, he
constantly and involuntarily tarns to the
subject, and speaks calmly and deferen
tially. 'He says that ho has not begun
preaching, because bis mission for the
present is to go abroad ip the world, to
talk and reasoD.,qaiotIy. It is a most
singular case of hallucination, and-'though
not absolntely'original,' ii Is at'least rare
in the, history, of the world. It may be

expresses no fear of , the j Indians, on the
road east, though he.evidently. prefers ri
ding to walking. and'theVeforo thinks nf
waiting-until the coaches begin1 running
again, xi nor. a monomaniac npon this
particular subject, , we, conclude that be is
anxious to see the world, and travel "no
on ibe cheap."

opportunity of seeing this singular -per
sonage, it they do, they had better se
cure an introduction; for it will probably
be the last chanca.manv-of them will ever
have to become acquainted with any one
