Some time last August lightning struck a green hickory on Wm.

While sit ting by his fireside, the party of robbers, three in number, rode up and asked him how many children he had, saying they had come for his bacon, and were going to take all, save enough to feed each member of his family. Receiving this intelligence, they placed a guard at the door and each window of his residence, while others robbed h smoke houee of iIk1 above amount of meat, leaving two Snturdny, April 3. A gentleman in Amherst county, Va., on Friday, caught several colored women stealing rails from his fences. He follow ed them to liynchbnrgh, and then com pelled them to carry the rails back and replace them on the fence. He gave them all the wood they could carry home, and bade them "go and sin no more.' Mr. Daniel Slater, who resided near Lexington, Tenn., on last Saturday even ing, while felling a tree, was struck on the head by a falling limb, from the ef fects of which he died on-Sunday evening. He was about thirty-five yeaTS of age, and left a widow and five children to mourn his loss. Mrs. Margaret Reed, familiarly known to almost everybody in- Wilson county, Tenn., as "Granny Reed, died at the res idence of her son, Mr. an Keed, three miles from, this city, on Monday, at the advanced age of one hundred and lour years. Mrs. Reed was probably the old est person in the State at the time of her death, and was in many respects a re markable woman. Herman Thornton, a respectable col ored man of Hernando, Miss , had a, grown daughter taken sick-last week. He sent for Dr. Shaw, who on his arrival found her raging with hydrophobia, from which she suffered until death released her. In her lucid intervals she told those around that, last August a puppy bit her hnger. lhe puppy alterwards died. The Sypher brothers, on their planla tion near Franklin, La., have planted four of the fever trees, which are. now over live feet bjgb. General Sypher ob tained them in. Washington City, and transplanted them to their beautiful farm a short, time since. They are healthy and doing well. This tree is said to grow over a height of 300 feet, and sometimes reaching a height of 500 feet. Richard Snellgrove, a very worthy young man, living in Schley county, Ga., a few days ago accidently shot himself in the back part of his head. It is said that he started to a creek near his resi dence to go fishing, and had taken his gua along with him to kill some game, Ue was lound dead about dark near a fence, with a bird in one hand and his gun in- the other. It is thought that, while he was getting oyer the lence, the gun must have got caught iu the fence and discharged its contents as above slat ed. Daniel Boone, the famous "hunter of Kentucky," has a first cousin living in Caldwell county, N. C, Mrs. Jemima Setzer now in her 95th year, and she can sew, knit, spin flax, go to mill and milk the cows. She rises at five the year round, smokes her pipe three times a day and drinks strong coffee at each meal; has never had a dust of snuff in her mouth, and there is not a decayed tooth in her head. She belongs to the Baptist church and walks three miles to preach ing two Sundays in every month. She was never sick but about two hours in her whole life, and that was caused by eating a cucumber. The details of the killing of Col. D. A. Butterfield, at Hot Springs, Ark., reached Little Rock Sabbath alternoon. Col. Butterfield was superintendent of the Hot Springs street railway, and also interested in the buildi-ng of the branch road from Malvern to tlie Springs. At Malvern, Friday, several of the men of the engi neer corps desired their pay, but were re fused by the colonel, who said they could only be paid off at the Springs. About 5 o'clock Saturday evening, two men, the name of one of whom was Decker, both in the employ of Mr. Butterfield, request ed the payment of certain waes. The parties had tome hard words, when, as reported, Col. B. struck one of the men with a club, and then drew a revolver. Then it was that Decker picked up a four foot stick and dealt his employer a death blow on the head. The deceased lived until about 11 o'clock at night, when, without once returning to consciousness, he breathed his last. Decker tied to the woods to escape the crowd, but after ward surrendered himself to DeputySher iff Fin. Parker, saying he had no inten tion of escaping. says that a large hickory tree, about two feet in diameter, was driven lour irei leeper in the ground. It is still standing and can be seen by those who have curi osity enough to visit the spot. W e can not explain how" this happened. Mr. Thurmond, however aesures us that it is a true tale. A young lady living in Campbell cown ty, Va., some six miles from Lynchburg, whose name is withheld at present, at tempted to commit suicide yesterday morning by taking laudanum. Yester day evening her condition was regarded as almost entirely nopeiess, ana it is not improbable that she may now be dead. A similar attempt on her life was made a few months since, both of which were on account ol her love for a youth only six teen years of age, to whom she was en gaged to be married, and whose visits her parents opposed. The families, of each of the parties are highly respectable, and the probable sad result ot this unfortunate love allair causes a deep gloom in ootn huuseholds, as well as in the entire com munity in which it occurred). Tuesday afternoon- ar disturbance oc curred on the premises of Thos Breedlove, about two miles south of Hearne, Texas, resulting in the killing of a negro named John Cade, by a white man named Willis Griffin. The circumstances, as devel oped at the inquest, are that John Cade, a tenant on llreediove's place, whipped a negro boy for losing his ax and refusing to tell anything about it, lor which .breed love threatened his arrest, and started away, returnimr in- a' short time witli Willis Griffin, who after having a dispute with Cade, struck his wife and daughter once or twice, and then drew a pistol and fired at Cade,- the ball taking effect in the brain and producing death in about ten hours. A warrant was issued by Justice Davison for the arrest of Griffin, but he cannot be found. The city of Waco, Texas, was thrown into intense excitement by the sounds of an affray in the ollice of Dr. O. J. Buck, Esq. It seems that Dr. J. H. Caldwell owed Mr. Buck some pioney, and had gone to his office to pay it over. There were some stormy words passed, but after the settlement was made the cause ol the dispute waa unfortunately reopened The Doctor used threatening words, and Mr. Buck hurled a paper weight at him, about the same instant the Doctor struck with his stick. After some scuffling Doctor Caldwell clutched Buck by the throat, immediately Mr. B. drew his pistol and fired, missing. Alter tailing on the floor, the Doctor still maintaining his hold of the other s throat, Buck fired again, in flicting a bad looking wound in the tern pie of his antagonist. This ended , the fight. The Doctor lay.on the floor of the office, and Mr. Buck tendered his services to assist the wounded gentleman. Mr. Buck immediately gave himself up to of ficer McGee and was conducted at once to the sheriff and given into his custody, and the wounded gentleman was carried home. The physicians examined the wound of Doctor Caldwell, the ball was found to range downward, and in its course to have passed near the large blood vessels ol the neck. The ball was not round. There is no danger except from second ary hemorrhage. Mr. Buck was taken before his Honor, Judge Battle, and was held in bond of $2,500 to appear from day to day, Tl in his a deed of death Over a year ago, John Hurry, a rest dent of Johnson county, came to Coalton in Greenup county, and there received a sum of money and started to return Murrv never reached home: his horse was found not far from Coalton. ureat rarely acknowledge each others merits excitement prevailed in urn viciniiy ior The heartg of women m weatier. u nine, ifc was Buppuscu nuw uc n i -li-i been murdered for his money.
