Tuesday Morning:, September 13,1871. Tuc RADICAL FonoEiiY EXPOSED.-A Washington lotter says: "Tho publica? tion in a Now York paper a week ago of what purported to bo tho proceedings and address of a Southern association, alleged to bo formed here, looking event? ually to a future independence of the South, has turned out ou inquiry, as was at tho time supposed, to bu n Republi? can electioneering document, not hav? ing a singlu fact for a basis. No auch organization exiBts hure, nor over has existed since tho war." -?????? EPISCOPAL SECESSION.-Mention has been made of tho action o? n New York congregation of tho Protestant Episco? pal communion, presided over by Rev. Geo. E. Thrall, which had adopted a now ritual, ncoording to a volume called the "Union Prayer Book," lately intro? duced by thoir rector, and which, ap? parently, relies upon its merits to ooin mend it to use, ns it docs not purport to bo sanctioned by nny constituted "au? thority" whatover. A variety of depart? ures, chiefly verbal, from tho old Epis? copal Book of Common Prayer, aro taken, chiefly with tho view of simplify? ing, it but two appear to involve what will perhaps bo generally oousidorcd matter of doctrine. In tho Athanasian .creod tho words "I acknowledge one baptism for thc remission of sins" are omitted, and the other affirmation, "] behove in ono oatholio and apostolic ohuroh" is rendered "I bolieve io one .holy ohuroh universal." Io tho rito foi baptism tho words "and do sign hire with tho sign of tho cross" aro omitted, besides several substitutions and simpli ficatipns. Surprise has boen expressoc that Bishop Pottor has taken no notioi of this mutter within his episcopal juris diction. Tho explanation is that tin Bishop has gone to tho country, ant will not return till about tho 15th in atuut. Of all humbugs, make-bolioves ant falso pretonces over pnlmed off upon i people, tho shoes now worn by th< young women of the period occupy i first position. In absurdity of construe tiou, in wasto of raw material, in a fail ure to adapt meauB to tho accomplish mont of desired ends, theso Bhoes ar fearfully and wonderfully progressive They comply with tho domands of most absurd fashiou, and while they d so, they uttorly destroy all tho graco an elasticity of a true woman's walk, all th poetry of woman's movements in th parlor or on tho street, and all the con; fort and ease which nature attaches t harmonious pedestrial operations, heel three inohes high is not a naturi heel; whilo it gives increase of height, i adds monstrosity of movemont. It di: arranges the natural centre of gravih throws the body forward to accommt date itself to au artificial stand-point bi neath the centre and instep, and leat to such self-torture and solf-caricatui as would bo ridiculous to the fair crei tures, if thoy were but to seo thomsolvt as others see them. No really gracoft object in nature is over eo changed fe the worse, as a fashionable woman in h< panniers and high-hooled shoes. Tbl mincing tread, ns if shu were steppin over hot grate bars, and that forwai stoop, to display at tho sumo time a fu breast and an exaggerated bustle, sn ceecls in giving her tho shape of au an mated uud by no means ornamental ?

TUE FAMINE IN PERSIA.-Tho accounts that bavo for some time been slowly ar? riving in British ludia, it ia stated, provo conclusively that famine of tbo most ap? palling description provails in Persia, lu all parts of India relief committees havo been formed and subscriptions have been liberally contributed. Tho accounts from Meshed, tho capital of tho Pro? vinco of Khorassan, in North-east Persia, state that during tho six months preced? ing April, IS,000 persons bad died from (starvation-432 iu one day, aud that parents had boon detected eating their own offspring. Tho renewed and inces Kuut incursions of thu Tut koreans had rendered tho whole country unsafe, and had greatly aggravated tho general dis? tress. Tho Turkomans in ono incursion aro reported to havo carried off 400 per? sons into slavery. At Herat the effects of scarcity as well as of tho siege were also experienced, and several thousand persons iu that city havo died of starva? tion. At Ispaham" and Teheran tbo fa? mine was very severo, but the worst ac? counts, it is reported, have como from the South of Persia. Serious bread riots have takon placo at Shiraz, whore not ono-eighth of tho population, it is reported, has been loft alive. Tbo rov? ing tribes in tho vicinity have takon ad? vantage of tho general distress to rob and plunder without distinction of ago or condition of life. From Bushiro the most painful acoounts of all have come, but this, it is stated, is due to the fact that there aro more Europeans in that city to observe and report. A Georgia negro thought he would economizo by sending his son to school and then make tho boy teach him. Tho plan worked well until tho young teacher, following tho custom of the seminary where ho was taught, gave tho old man a doso of hickory, for spelling dog d-o-r-g, aud then tho latter became dis? gusted, and ran away.

Radical Outrages In North Carolina.| A lotter from Kooky Mount to tbe Now York Sim gives Borne idea of tbe kind of outrages daily perpetrated in North Carolina. The writer says: To show up tho Kn Klux bill in itu true colors as a powerful political eugine to bo w i elded by the President for private purposes, let us seo what class of citi? zens aro ooerced iu exercising their rights of citizenship. That sword is said to be a dangerous one whioh outs both ways. A largo majority of the ne? groes in North Carolina aro congregated iu'the Eitsteru Counties, where tho soil is moro fertile, cottou is grown, and wages uro higher. The whites preponde? rate in tho Western Counties, yet United States troops aro always sont to Alnmnnco and other Western Counties, to koop straight mon who huvo always been accustomed to tho ballot, while in tho East tho negro neophytes ticed no protection. DOOK it not occur to the most superfi? cial thinker that iguorunt, poor, thrift? less blacks, recently enfranchised, would nocd more protection at tho ballot-box than tho whites? Thou, why aro tho troops disposed as they are? Tho con? clusion is inevitable. Tho negroes are swayed by the ollico-holders, who in turn "bond tho pregnant hinges of the knee" to Geueral Grant, that "thrift may fol? low fawning*" If intimidation nt the ballot-box prevails anywhere in North Carolina, and the protecting presence of soldiers is required, then Eastern or no gro Carolina is tho plaoe; for if a negro should dare to vote the conservative ticket in the negro country, ho would do so at tho poril of his lifo. Many in? stances of scourging arp known. Two only will bo mentioned, as they found publicity through tho courtH, and the trials wera held iu the presence of tho writer. One occurred near Stantonsburg, in Wilson County. A negro with a largo family, whom his individual exertions wore inadequate to support, and who waB generously assisted by bis em? ployer, had the temerity, notwithstand? ing the threats mado against him by his colored brothren, instigated by the white office-seekers, to voto with his employer, a Mr. Barnes. The next uight ho was visited by twenty-five stalwart blacks, grotesquely painted, and bearing each a bundle of rods. After terrifying tho victim's family, cursing, abusing and threatening to kill them, they stripped him of hi? shirt and drawers, and then dragged him to thc woods. Here they tied him, and then proceeded to administer the most un? merciful castigation on his bare back. Tho duty of flogging was too onerous for one man, so one would whip until be was tired, and then a fresh mau would take the place of the exhausted one, and so on until all had played a proportion? ate part. More dead than alive, this almost inanimate mass of human gore finally gasped n promise that ho would henceforth voto with them, and then these renominating agents desisted. Near Bnttleboro, in Edgecombe Coun? ty, a oolorcd mau wus surrounded in his corn-field, by a select committee of Union Leaguers. Without stating the whys and wherefores, ho wa3 rudely torn from his work and curried nuder arrest to Bnttleboro. Ho besought II?B captors to allow him to seo his family, and tell them where ho was going, so UB to savo them all anxioty. lie was told to "shut up his d-d mouth, or he'd get it busted." Ho was hauled up beforo tho political inquisition, until ho was at length intimidated into n promise, to support the Grant ticket, and released. Theso instances aro now matters of re? cord, and can be soon in the clerk's office of Nash and Wilsou Counties, and also in Edgecombe County, whero the parties were tried. THE CYCLONE IN GEOIIGIA-IMMENSE DAMAGE TO Cnors AND RAILKOADS.-Tho Augusta Constitutionalist, of thc9th, says: Last Wednesday, a terrific gale, ao companiod by heavy rain, swept over tho country, between Milledgovillo and Mucon, prostrating tho cottou and blow? ing down fenoes. Tho floods did great damage to tho Macon sud Augusta liail road and the Central Railroad. On tho hitter, tho track was washed up for some distance, and several culverts and trestlo works wero carried awuy. The passen? ger train which loft Augusta ut 12 o'clock Wednesday, on this road, was stopped at Roberts' Station by employees of the road, who gave tho conductor informa? tion of tho break in front, and almost ut tho samo timo nows was received of tho damage which lind happenod to tho track in the rear of tho train kineo its passuge, thus cutting it off completely. Tho cyclouo extonded as fur down ns Burke County, doing great injury to the cotton in that section, and was moro se? vero than any storm experienced thero for years. Other Counties yet to hear from, no doubt, have been equally da? maged. This storm has, perhaps, douo greater injury to the crops thau tho cy clono which devastated tho coast some time since, ns it passed over a larger tract of country and immediately through tho cotton belt. DREADFUL TltAOED? IN WILKINSON. Tho Macon (Ga.) Citizen learns that about mid-night, Wednesday lust, a party of 1 unknown mon gagged and killed Mat? thew Deason, Sheriff of Wilkinson Coun I ty, and a negro woman in his omploy, and throw their bodies into a mill pond near by. The bodies wore rocovorod on Friday morning, and Sheriff Deason was found to havo a gun-shot wound in thc head, whilo tho romaine of tho woman gave evidence of having boen badly mu? tilated with a knifo. Two black boys, riding horse-back at full speed, in Nottaway County, Virgi? nia, a fow days ago, in opposite direc? tions, wero unable to manage their steeds, and the horses carno together with such forco that ono was instantly killed and the other fatally injured. Neither of the boys was harmal. THU REMAINS OF A GIANT RACE.-Tho Petersburg Index, of yesterday, under a sensational beading in its local column, givoB publicity to tho following vory re? markable aud interesting discovery of mammoth remains: Tho following information is given us by gentlomen of tho highest charaater and oredit, who have seeu with their own eyes, touched and tested with tben? owa hands, tho wonderful objects of whioh they tnnko report. Tho workmen eugaged in opening a way for tho projected railroad botweeu Weldon and Garysbnrg struck, Monday, about one mile from tho former place, iu a bank beside the river, a catacomb of skeletons, supposed to bo tboso of In? dians of a remote age and a lost and forgotten ruco. Tho bodies exhumed wero of strange and remarkable forma? tion. Tho skulls wero nearly un inch in thickness; tho teeth were filed sharp, ns are those of cannibals-tho enamel per? fectly preserved; the bones wero of won? derful length and strength-the femur being us long us tho log of nu ordinary mau, the stature of tho body being, pro? bably, us great ns eight or nine feet. Near their hoads were sharp stone ur row.'i, stono mortars, iu which their corn was brayed, and tho bowls of pipes', ap? parently of soft, friable sonp-stono. The teeth of tho skeletons are said to bo as largo as tboso of horses. Ono cf them has boon brought to tho city and pre? sented to nu officer of the Petersburg Railroad. Tho bodies were found closely packed together, luid tier on tier, us it seemed. There was no discernible ingress into or egress out of the mound. Tho mystery is who these giants were; to what race they belonged, to what era, and how thoy carno to be buried there. To these inquiries no answer has 3-ot been made, and meanwhile the ruthless spade con? tinues to cleave skull aud body usunder, throwing up ia mingled masses the bones of this heroic tribu. We hope some ef? forts will bo made to preserve authentic and accurate accounts of these discove? ries, and to throw some light, if possi? ble, on the lost tribe whose bones have boen thus rudely disturbed from their sleep in earth's bosom. AH a supplement to thc above, we copy tho following from tho Wheeling Intelligencer, as the giants and tho mound builders may have been of tho same roce: During last week, some workmen, in making an excavation iu a mound at Martin's Ferry, Ohio, discovered anti exhumed two human skeletons. One ol them was found intact; tho other hail fallen to pieces. What was remarkoblc about their burial was the fact that thc bodies hud evidently been oovured by au arch mado of limestone boulders, which were in an irregular heap about tho re? mains. Theso must have been carried ii considerable distance and placed in thc mound, as they oro not found in that al? luvial formation. Portions of ono oi tho skeletons were presented by Captain James Dean to Professor Marton, of thc Fomalo College, where they have beer placed iu the museum. Theso remaint aro supposed to bo of persons who be? longed to tho ancient race of monad builders, those aboriginal inhabitants o: this country who aro said to antedato ii their history even the Indians. Al through the Mississippi Valley, from th( lakes to tho Gulf, aro found defeusivi earthworks aud other monuments o these aucient mound-builders. Then are said to be 10,000 of the mounds ii Ohio alone. Some were erected for pur poses of militar}' defense, others n: great altars for religious worship, am still others as burial places und inonu mcuts for the dead. Mr. Absalom Hooker, of Madisoi Couuty, N. C., wns killed last week, un der tho following circumstances: A nu m ber of persons, on gaged in orecting a lo| building, were carrying a heavy log oi their shoulders, tho deceased being ii front with tho end on his left shoulder Wheu they had reached their destinatioi seme ono behind gave directions to thros dowu tho log. Some ono elso near th deceased at the samo instant gave con trary direetiou. Thus confus , som* attempted to drop thc log, others to holt on to it. Among the latter was the dc ceased, who was borne down, the Io falling on and crushing bis bend. Tho English papers report a case c child murder and suicide, which ha produced a profound sensation. Th guilty mother was Miss Fanny OOHS sister of tho rector of Kingsland, Hen ford Couuty. Tho child was foun strangled by a string around its throat and a medical examination of the female of tho familj" having been ordered, MU Goss shut herself up in her room, an before she could be reached by the ext miners, had gushed her arm desperate) in four places, dying iu a fow miuuti from loss of blood. Tho people of Biughampton, X. Y have been shocked by the anuouueemet that a small boy, uino years old, nn ii mate of tho Susquehanna Valley Homi had been found in tho street with block of wood, weighing sixteen pound chained and riveted to his neck. TL boy said he had escaped from the si called "Home," in company with nnotlu boy, who rau away similarly chained 1 a block of wood, and that he bud wot the block and chain all summer. Tl chain was filed ou', nnd tho matter to bo investigated. Among tho passengers who roturnc from Europe last wook wero Dr. nr. Mrn. J.

Our merchants, und others washing to prepare for tho fall business, will jilease take notice that the PHOENIX ofiieo is supplied with all necessary material for ns handsome curds, bill bends, posters, circulars, and other printing that maybe desired, as any office in the city. Give us a call and test our work. The Southern gas generator, now in uso at thc PIIONIX office, is much ad? mired. It is just tho thing for large es? tablishments; nud in country towns ?B invaluable.

A meet? ing for the purpose of re-organizing the company is to be held this evening. The new loan, though threatening at one time to prove a sad failure, has set? tled down into a success, nud thereat Mr. Boutwell rejoices. Humor has it, however, that Mr. B. largely exceeded bis authority in tho terms granted the syndicate-the now title of a financial agent-and that tho profits of tho syndi? cate ure abundant beyond measure. A preliminary survey for a railroad tc connect Ringville, tho terminus of the Wilmington and Manchester Road, wit! Augusto, Georgia, is now being made, The surveyors aro between tho Edistc and Shaw's Creek, und we learn it is the intention to cross the South Carolim Railroad below Aiken.
