relative to tbo state of affairs in Arkansas will
be published in to-morrow’s Jlepublican, Tho

answer to an article in tbo ficpnblican, which ap

The Hon, Thomas Alien, {‘resident .*
Deau 8m; 1 expect to go up Friday next, but I do
airo to state that 1 have road tbo utalomout of Mr.
Ward, oa published In the Republican. I have bcou
nothing to compare with tlio couditlou of nlTatrs which
Mr.* Ward Bccnia to represent. X bavo bcou In the
legislature and on tho streets every day, and I bavo
yet to boo tho first man with arms or hear tho first ono
speak of hcluß armed, or oven mention anything In

been almost entirely with tho conservative dement of
tho people, while Mr, Ward’s companions wero Mc-
Clure, Clayton, Oliver, and thoao of that Ilk. It may
bo that they curry arms, ns Mr. Ward assorlß.
Tho real fact is, sir, that there has been
neither dlnturhauco nor excitement in Arkansas in
relation to this matter. Among tho pcoplo at large
thero has bcou an interest to know what would ho done
at Washington, but no more apprehensions that Smith
would, unulded by tho Federal army, attempt to aet
up a Govcmmcnt.thnn there is in any city in the United
Slates that ho will attempt tho thing there. Ho has
absolutely no support among tho people, black and
white. All tho black men wilh whom I have conversed
say that between Mr. Smith and Mr. Garland they
prefer tbo tattor. Ho at least is a gentleman and a man
of character, while Smith is merely out of the
I'onctcutiary by McClure’s suffrage. Veryreapcclfnlly,

Through Mr. Goorgo IX. Gardner, of Puebla,
ami Mr. A. K. Coney, Purser of (ho steamship
Cub a, which arrived in tbo city yesterday morn
ing direct from iho Mexican porta, wo havo fur
ther particulars of the earthquake which visited
tho coast on tho morning of the 13th, by which
it appears quite a number of lives wore lost, and
tho dohlruclion of property much more severe
than it was at first reported.
Sir. Goorgo 11. Gardner, who was In Puebla nt
tho time, and iu. bed, was awakened by a shock
which throw him out of his bed. Ho jumped to
his foot, and was again llnown down, but ho,
thoro being no more ebooks, Immediately after
gained tho street, whero was an immense crowd
of people. Poaviug another shock, no one, how
ever entered into their houses until morning,
when tho majority of tho buildings wore found
to bo safe, though some dwelling-houses wore
much shaken. In Guanajuato, Puebla, Oaxaoa,
lehuacan, Tuxpan, San Andres Tuxtla, Cosoma
loapam, Cuernavaca, and Mioboocnu tho shock
was also severely felt, snowing that it extended
«l°ns tho acacoast. and not any distance into
tho Interior, though a slight shock was felt at
the Oity of Mexico.
At Albcrrado the church ami convent wore
much sbatloiod, and a portion of tlio tower full,
burying. it in supposed, eovcrul priests who wore
preparing for matins. In Tuxlia the phook was
vory groat, prostrating several houses, and kill
ing and wounding a number of people.
In VcraCruz, however, It appears the princi
pal damage was done to houses. Mr. Coney, of
thei Cuba, reporta that bo waa aalcop in tbo haci
enda, and waa awakened by tbo first abode.
Rushing to the street, lie waa again prostrated.
Ibo first shock waa a wave, ami iboaecoud oscil
lating. Immediately after bis reaching tbo
street there waa a terrible crash, and the cry was
raised that the old church, now used as a library,
and where the niece of Hernando Cortez ‘la
buried, was falling, but fortunately ouly a por
tion of the tower gave way.
About Ibo same Umo the walls of tbo old cathe
dral, whlou ato very solid, cracked open, starting
a panic into tbo people who had sought oholter
uoar tbo sanctuary. Tbo lighthouse waa also
much cracked and tbo keeper was thrown down
tbo stops, bruising him severely. About a third
of tbo buildings in Yora Cruz were in some way
cracked or broken, and there was also considera
ble damage done in tbo suburbs.
Tbo courao of the earthquake was from north
east to southwest, ami it lasted ion seconds.
Tbo change in tho thermometer and barometer
waa barely perceptible. It was not foil, singu
lar to say, in tho harbor, though thcia waa a
largo number of ships nt anchor there.
Their Superstitions.
Alabama Corrwpomlenco tflhe Xcio Vork Times.
Nearly all their actions are controlled and In
fluenced by some strange and supernatural bo
iler. If a hog is killed ou the wane of tho moon
they believe tbo flesh will dry up and tho fat molt
away. Soap must always bo made when tho moon
is increasing or it will not wash clothes woll. If
a rabbit mas across tbo path of a negro at dusk
bo immediately makes a cross in tho ground with
a stick and spits in tbo centre of it. They will
not toll why they do t iis, simply saying, “ The
cross removes tbo rabbit spell.” Another pecul
iar boliofis that if a duck dies in a woman’s
hands somo sickness will surely overtake her be
fore tho next now moon. Their boiler in tho ef
flcjuiy of charms is very strong. Tbo other day
while walking in tbo woods near Montgomery. I
met a young negro who had a rod bead ami a
largo piece of lead fastened to a strong cord and
tied around bis neck He told mo that ho was
troubled by frequout and long-continued bleed
ings from tbo nose, aud that tbo rod bead—
‘•blood beau" ho called it—and load bad boon
given him by an old woman doctor, Bhs had as
sured him that as long as bo wore the obai m bis
nose would never bleed again, and, said bo, “dure
’uougb, 1 hasn't had no trouble never since.”
Last week, iu a Police Justice’s Court m Mont
gomery, a good-loosing young negro girl ap
peared and wanted a warrant made out for the
arrest of an old blnok woman named Sue Will
iams. " What has Sue done to you?" asked the
Juatico; whereupon, attorn good deal of slam
rooting. the girl told her story, as follows : She
was iu love with a young colored man who did
not return her passion, and, heating that old
Sue c.Jitld propato a powder winch never faded
to make a man love tbo woman who adminis
tt r ■(! it to biut, abo wont to tho old woman uud
told her trouble. Buo told her that she could pro
pi to a o-vJorat onoo, aud that it could not fail
o nuts ibo dositod effect. She then wont into
au inner room, uud so*>u returned with a paper
containing what appeared to bo a few grains of
white sugar. Por this |sbo charged tho ghiSl,
Subsequently tbo powder was administered to
the jouug man in u glass of beer, but as ho bad
faded to show any symptoms of love for the girl
niio wauled old Sue attested as a cheat, The
Justice told her that bo could not have Sue ar
rested, but that bo would make her refund tbo
sl, aud prevent her from selling any more "lovo
charms. Yesterday evening during a conver
sation with a well-known doctor of this place ho
assured mo that tho negroes wore Him believers
iu svbat they called “ love charms,” aud that it
was a common occurrence to aummistora powder
to a woman to prevent her from being loved by
any man but her husband. Many of tbo pour
oicuturcs when stgU entertain tho belief that they
have been “ tricked.” as they call it, aud others
are sure that thdr illness is caused by somo rep
tilo having crawled nuo their body. There is
one old nugro ou u plantation near Mount Meigs
who stated positively that a "conjure doctor”
bus made a water suuuo outer his log.
Why tho Butter Didn’t Come.
They have a now hired girl over at Kovsor’a
farm, just uuthido of Now Castle, and on 'Tues
day, before starting to spend tho day with a
fnend, Mro. Keysor instructed Ilia girl to
whitewash tho kitchen during hor absence. Up
on returning Mrs. Keyset 'found tho job com
pleted in a very satisfactory manner. On
Wednesday, Mrs. Keyset nlauyu churns, and lost
Weduosdav, chon she was ready sho went out,
ami, finding that Mr. Keyset hud already put the
milk into tho churn, sho began to turn tho
handle. This was at 8 o'clock in tho morning,
and sho turned until 10 without anv signs of
buttor appearing. Thou sho called In tho hired
man, and ho turned nniil dinner time, when ho
knocked off wiih somo very otVoiihlvo language
addressed to tho butter winch had not yet comu.
After dinner tho hiied girl took hold of tho
crunk and turned it energetically until 2 o'clock
when sho Jot go with u romailc which convoyed
tho improsHlon that sho hohovod.tlio churn to bo
haunted. Then Mr. Keyset camo out ami said
ho wuutod to know what was tho matter with
that chum, anyhow. It was a good enough
churn, if people only know enough to work it.
Mr. Koysor then woikod the crank (ill 3:31)
o’clock, when, us tho buttor hud not conic, ho
surrendered it again to Uni hired man, bfcuiiao
ho had au oneogomont with a man in tho village.
Tho man g ound tho uyiohluo to an accompani
ment of frightful Imprecations. Thou tho Keysor
children each took a turn lor half an hour, thou
Mn*. Kovaur tried hor hand, and whon sho was
exhausted sho again enlisted tho hired girl, who
said hor prayers whllo sho ruruod. But tho but
tor didn’t como. Whon Kovsor oamo homo and
found tho churn mill in action ho blasted hm
oyes and did somo other innocent swearing, and
then ho hoized tho handle ami said ho'd make tho
butter come If ho kicked up an (urtlmiuaol in
doing it. Mr Keyset effected about 2ui)
involutions of tho oruuU a mmnte, enough to
luvo mado any ordinary buttor oomo from tho
omlu of tho earth; uud, whon tho perspiration
began to stream from him, and still tho bin ter
didu t como, he uttered one wild yoll of ragu and
disappointment, and kicked the chum over tho
fence, When Mrs. Keysor wont to pick it up
slio put hor noso down close to tbo butter

Uvvas. Iho girl had muod the whitewash in

TUo Wild Negro of Obion—Eßo Dwells
in u lUml-Uule for [>'ivo Vcars.
from the Xuthvttle (/Win.) /.miner.
There is iv strange specimen of humanity liv
ing in Obion County, Tennessee. Of his strange
eccoiimcitics some humors, who returned hero
yesterday from u low days’ sporturouudileolfoot
Lake, tell the following story:
The negro is called thu “Wild Negro of
Obion," from the lace that ho lives iu uuude
mute, through wmlor ami summer, in a mud
hole, and has d welt thoro for live years past, lie
calls hiuisolf Edmund, and has no recollection
of over having boon called by any other name,
though bum within 15 miles of the spot at
which ho seems to huvo permanently located
lie professes to have the “ Blood Fever,"
which ho esteems durable through no other
moans than by standing m a hole, about 4 foot
square, tilled with muu and ua.or to thu depth
of his kuous. He keeps a lire always burning in
such a position us to permit the wind to blow the
smoko of it upon his person. During ooid
weather he heals tbo water by throwing hot
ashes into it. The strong lye thus produced lias
caused the splitting open of the calves of his
logs, and mado the sain very scaly from the
ankle to thu kneo. One half of each foot lias
been frozen off, In consequence of which ho now
duds sumo dilllmilty iu getting about, hobbling
instead of walking. Before he was possessed of
the strange belief that he hail bucu stno.mii
with the " Blood Fever," ho must have been
a very • large, heavy man. Though he
has passed through the four seasons live times
without a change from the clothing which na
ture gave him, yet ho is dill muscular, though
raw-boned and awkwatd, standing 0 foot without
his socks. Eumuml has subsisted on u very or
dinary diet, consisting of drv corn and pump
kins. When driven out of his favorite spot of
earth by a freshet, be hobbles over to an old
burn, not far distant, and impatiently awaits (ho
going down of the tide, when ho returns to stand
in tuo mud and slush as bolero. Thu weather
bus so toughened his skin that it appears us hard
and as thick us medium quality of Icuilior. it
would seem, trout the story of our voracious
upurtsmou, that the negro is crazy, and, having
mislakuu the symptoms for that of “ blood
fever," Ims gone through a course of treatment
likely, in thu end, to put bun iu a corner lot of
six loot two.
