Turkey Buzzards are not wild turkeys, and the former, if laid hands on suddenly are very apt to make it known that the wrong passenger nas been waked up. The reports in the News and Otmrt'er of the Atlanta Convention say that on the question of a uniform Bankrupt Law Mr. Malone of North Carolina made a strong speech in favor of the proposed law. lie was among custinguisned speak ers pro and con, and sustained the honor ot nis btate handsomely. Col. J. M. Ray, who has spent the. win ter at St. Augustine, Florida, is again at home. He was much pleased with his winter's sojourn in the land of oranges, and reports a large crowd having spent the winter months in that delightful locality. He says that the place for Asheville to advertise her summer advantages is in Florida the. traveling public would then be made more thor oughly acquainted with what we have, and he believes judicious advertising there would be productive of much good: ' The map of the county which Capt. T. W. Patton is preparing will prove of in calculable benefit to the magistrates and commissioners in the discussion' on the first Monday in Jane, of the stock law question. The map has been gotten up with great care and is an aeeorate repre sentative of the county in every respect. Dr. Watson, County Coroner, was sum moned somewhat suddenly this morning to hold an inquest oyer the body of a man found dead at Coopers Station.- He had no information of the cause of death .

Yesterday afternoon, the cloud which, as seen from here, hung so heavily and ominously over Hominy Valley, burst with destructive effect. It fell in the nature of a water Bpout or cloud burst, with a cataract of hailstones. The waters in the streams were swelled almost in stantly. The stream which, crosses the railroad about three miles west of Turn pike became a -raging flood. At this point the famous high trestle, 92 feet !u!gh,-crosses. The bents are four stories high, and one can look' down into the chimneys of the farmhouse below. Three widths of these bents were torn away, leaving the iron rail, held together by the fish bar joint, hanging suspended high in the air. , The train coming east had passed only about ten minutes. - We have as yet no information as to the extent of the storm or the damage done by the hail or flood otherwise than, to the railroad. .

The Board op Aldermen " : Held a meeting last night, and con sidered several matters of importance. This Board is determined to get into working condition at once, and to this end another called meeting will be held Monday night, and meetings be held once each week. Several committees have been appointed : Messrs. Reynolds and Gorenflo made street committee a good one. Mr. J. Nowell has been ap pointed to. look after the street hands Messrs. Rankin and Scott have been con stituted a committee to draw up police regulations, to report at a subsequent meeting. The question of sidewalks was consid ered last night, and we may look for some improvement in that direction. The committee on water works made a partial report, and recommendations on this subject will Te reported hereafter. It was decided to elect another police man, and Mr. J. H. Hampton was unan imously elected. On motion of Alderman Rankin, the Mayor was instructed to require all all wood, hay and lumber wagons to occupy the vacant Jot north of the court house. The Market House Question. The Board -of, Aldermen,. Thursday night, after hearing the report of the committee which had been appointed to confer" with Mr. D. S. Watson concern ing his proposition tor the erection ot a market house on the old. jail property under an agreement with the city au thorities, discussed the matter freely f and nnally rejected the proposition. In doing this, however, the Board was gov erned by several motives, and not in od- position to the erection of a market house. The town at present does not control the property, though it is hoped and believed such control will soon be obtained; it was considered better that the town should erect a market house of its own, of a good substantial character. and the acceptance of Mr. Watsdn's proposition would debar the town from doing such a thing for ten years, and the Board hasin contemplation a project, not yet matured, in connection with this matter, which it is intended to submit to the citizens at a later day. . - - - We hope the Board will not lose sight of this subject, one of vital importance to our whole community, and that Buch steps as may be decided upon will be taken without delay. The citizens of AsheviUe. we believe, demand the es tablishment of a market house in our midst, and we know the authorities fully recognize this necessity. for the Asheville Citizen SEQUEL TO THE CRISP TRAGEDY. A Party Arrested on Suspicion op Mur der, but Discharged fob Want op Evidence. ' ' - . ' On Saturday, the 9th inst, a party by name of Wm. Walker was arrested upon suspicion of being the actor in the shoot ing of W. M. Crisp, owing to the fact, that, on the day said W. M. Crisp was shot, he, Walker, was in the same woods. Walker admitting the fact of discharg ing his gun on that day. Being arraign ed before M. A. Crisp, D. A; Taylor and A. Walker, J. P. for Stecoah township, he pleaded innocent of the charge. Having no evidence whatever of. m posi tive character, he was released. This undoubtedly is one of the most peculiar circumstances that ever occurred in our country. - The murder has been done. accidentally or wantonly as it may be. JNo clue in any manner can be discover ed as to tbe actor in the deed. If it be an accident, how honorable and noble would its actor have been to have re ported it; if it be an intentional act, per haps in the language of one of America's bright characters "murder will out" and the perpetrator be yet brought to justice the mystery as yet remains perfectly veiled. : - Amicus Stecoah, Graham con May 18th. - - J- All the great dailies New York Herald, World, Times, Sun, Trib une, Charleston News and Courier, Char lotte Observer, Raleigh News-Observer, Wilmington Star, Wilmington Re view, and Asheville Citizen are to be found regularly at the Book Stores of J.

Cherokee Court, holding only one week insteau of two as allowed by- law, has been tii cause of some little confu sion as to the succeeding courts of the circuit.

Escape op Convicts. Last night four convicts, all negroes escaped from the quarters at Best's, and are at large. They are described in the posters profusely distributed as "bad men;" and it is the interest and duty of every good citizen to aid in their speedy capture. We would call attention to one fact : those detected in furnishing citi zens' clothes to such escaped convicts are liable to indictment as aiders and abet tors in acts to defeat the ends of justice. It would be retributive justice to put such in striped suits. Hotel Arrivals.. -- .

AU of the Participants .Jled or Mortally Wounded--Revolvers Emptied and Borne Knives Substituted. -- , ' ' : . - Jacksonville, Fla., May IS.; -A family feud in Madison county culminated yes terday in a tragically fatal encounter be tween three brothers named West on one side and three brothers named Lang ford on the other. The scene of the con flict was Hickory Grove Church, several miles from the county seat. Sunday school was in progress within the church edifice when the fight was inaugurated. Several of the combatants were teaching Sunday-school classes at .the time. The three Langford brothers were sit ting in front of the building, beneath a tree. John and Eugene- -West came driving up in a buggys Jhefap proached vVilliam 'XgforcT got upland walked toward them, as if to speak.' A moment later a pistol shot was heard. Which of the men shot is not known. At tbe report another brother of the two men in the buggy ran and joined them. The other two Langford's rallied around their kinsman, and in a jiffy half a dozen revolvers were belching forth their con tents. The hundred or more people attend ing the Sunday School rushed out to learn the cause of the firing. As they emerged they saw Eugene West fall from the buggy to the ground IN A POOL OP BLOOD. A bullet had entered his back near the right shoulder and penetrated to the right breast, where it lodged just be neath the skin, and was subsequently extracted by a doctor. Langford's left shoulder was heWn open to the bone by a knife thrust, and he died on the green sward of the church, while the conflict was still in progress. Six gashes in his clothing told of Mie lightning-like rapid ity with which his assailant had plied tbe knife after he had fallen to the ground, where he succeeded in firing his revolver until all the chambers were emptied. . All the men were at close range and the rapidity of the firing filled the air with smoke so that those who rushed from the church were unable to distin guish who was doing it or what particu lar part each of the participants was tak ing in the tragedy. The ladies and children present became panic stricken ana nea in every, direction, jour or five men essayed to quell the trouble, but personal safety made desistance im perative. The maddened brothers fired thirty or forty shots at close quarters, and WHEN THEIR WEAPONS WERE EMPTIED drew knives and engaged in a hand-to- hand encounter. All were covered with blood and begrimed with powder, but none of them flinched and all stood side by side and fought man against man with tiger-like ferocity. Wm. Langford fell to the ground from tb los3 of blood, but continued slashing away at his foes with his knife until seven bullets had perforatedhis body and death put him hors de combat. Babe .Langford fell by his side, with a bullet hole through his bowels and kid neys and another through the wrist of his right arm. He was unconscious and rapidly dying, but his sole surviving brother stood up with his face to the foe and fought till a bullet lodged in his brain, and he, too, fell to the ground un- conscious ana aying. Une of the vv est boys was, as has al ready been stated, killed outright. John West was a mass of knife wounds across the hips and stomach,, his disem boweling having apparently been the aim of his antagonist. - Abraham West s back was literally laid open bv knife thrusts from his shoulders to his hips. Each of these last two, however, may survive their in juries. - The latal hght was . " THE RESULT OF A FEUD which had been smouldering - between the two families for several years. J he fathers of the participants in yes terday's fight owned adjoining planta tions. They quarreled over a real estate transaction, and ill-feeling was engend ered between the families. Both men died, but the vendetta lived and was in tensified last fall, during the political campaign, by letters of a very personal character published in the Madison New Era and the Madison Recorder, by John W. West and Wm. M. Langford. The friends of both sides thought that the trouble had been amicably settled, as the Wests and Langfords held a friendly meeting in Ihomasvule, ua., after the election was over for the. pur pose of arranging an honorable com promise. - - The coroner was notihed this morning and left to hold an inquest.

His Condition not so Good last night, bnt more Favorable this morning. ' . ' New Yobk, May 22, 12 m. There was some undue irritation in General Grant's throat last night, attend ed by frequent attempts to clear the surfaces of mucus.- These efforts further irritated the parts, and the General being apprehensive of a wakeful night, sugges ted that Dr. Douglas remain through the night, which he did. When the doctor left this morning he said the General's apprehensions proved groundless, for he slept at 11:30 last night, and continued to sleep until 4 o'clock this morning, after which he slept at intervals until 8:30 this forenoon; at that time he awoke with little if" any pain.

Tucson, Arizona, May 22nd. . News from Clifton states that the Apaches who left their " reservation have gone in the direction of Majolton moun tains. As the settlers along that route have not been warned, it is feared that many murders and outrages will be com mitted. A later report states that Capt. Smith and his scouts have sighted the Indians on upper Eagle creek and have gone in pursuit of them. Gen. Bradley, commanding in New Mexico, has sent three companies under Col. Morrow to patrol the .line between New Mexico and Arizona. Troops have also been or dered into the Black Kange, all passes to all Mexico are guarded and it will be al most impossible for the renegades to es cape the troops. . Correspondence Relating to the Transactions at PciiJ ; deh. The Emphatic llltlmainra of cue ml . ' UomnrofT. London, May 22, noon. . The correspondence which took placje between Col. Zakojewski of Gen. Komar ofTs staff and Capt. Yates, of General Sir Peter Lumden's ' staff respecting the Afghan situation at the time of Penjdeh incident,' is now made public. It shows among other things that on the same day that Col, Zakojewski accepted Capt Yates' invitation to a collation .at which the situation of the opposing outposts was to bo discussed, Gen. Komaroff sent an ultimatum to Naib Solar, com mander of the Afghan forces. This or dered Naib Solar to withdraw all his troops to the right bank of Ktiahk river. The ultimatum concluded in these words: "There will be neither' negotations nor explanations on the subject you are too intelligent and short sighted to compel me to see' to the fulfilment ' of this demand." Naib Solar replied., that he had consulted with Capt. Yates, and was bound to obey the Ameer., Gen.,.Kom aroff rejoined insisting that compliance with the terms of his ultimatum was necessary to preserve peace. He warned Naib Solar against heeding the empty counsels ot others and concluded thus : "Choice between friendship and enmity, rests with you." After the battle of Penj deh which followed, this intercourse be tween Gen. Koraoroff and Naib Solar, Capt; Tates wrote to Col. Zakojewski soliciting protection and offering service of English doctors. : J.-r . ; ' . - 'Baltimore Slarltet. :' Baltimore, May 22.
