This is, of course, raised by taxation in all the coun? ties,, and none of it can come back and he spent or disbursid in a county except through the criminal trials that take placo in her courts. For example, Shen? andoali is taxe?! a certain amount towards ?ictraying the criminal expenses of the whole Slate, and she can not have a dol? lar of that money back, or expended within the county except for criminal trials. Consequently the trials ot Myers, Anthony and Weed have brought hack to the county a largo amount of money that would not have gotten back in any other way.

Her face presentad a most life like appearance, Her remains were ?objacted to every 1st known to mO'Lcin?* liy the phy IS, Wliilo not the slightest re? vio;.S" of life was awakened, yst the remain? preserved a liemitiful and life like ippearanea. Tho funeral was postponed ? ?nd finallj l?x?-'l for Monday l*?t ? Al> .ut six hours before ihn hour tixul tor the fanerai, evidences appssrsd on the body tliat dispelled all donbts as to her death, and tho burial took pl.tce at the hour fixed, from St. Francis church. An Atlanta, Oa , special ti the Bicb mond Di-paO-h, ?ay?! "Sheriff J. C. Lo g an, of Bath county, Va., p-issed througli Atlanta Tinsd.iy night with a closely* guarded and heavily-chained prisoner. That saiuo prisoner may jet ?unament the etnl of a rope Nearly six jears ago one "f tbe most prosperous young farmer? of ^!ith county was found ?"?e ?d in his bed in t'.ie morning, with an ugly st?b in his bre ist and a gasli across his throat, which 1 -ft in room to conjecture thi came ol his death. But Charles T. Aiidman was not known to lave au enemy iu the world am! for several days no one could con? jecture who had done ihe bloody deed. A fi'vr days after the burial, however, James T. Kaufi'man, a young German Amlinan liad befriended, disappeared, am! in a short time suspicion pointed to him, but for years nothing was done. Several months ago a negro who was working fol Aiidiiiaii at the tnne of the murder wa? an ??ted f,?r burglary, ami while in jail eoalsoaod ti a* ha ami KaanTmao commit teil the dee?l, a-.tiiatecl by a desire to se? cure a fo*/hutidrecl dollars Audman was known lo have about the house. It re i|inred no trouble to locate Kauffiiiau nsar Mobile, where he was superintendent of a plantation. When Sheriff Logan secure?! KanfVinan in Alabama be admitted that he had always known that the negro did the work but dmied any part in it him? self. Tho dwelling honte of Mr?. Catherine Keeily and her son Charles A. Rtsedy, near Narrow Passage, abont six miles west ot this place, was totally destroyed by fire on Tuesday of last week. Noons was at home at the time lint the young wife and infant obild of Charl.s Keedy, but Mrs. Ki'edy was suffering bo severely with iheiimatisni as to hardly be aide to move, and her little child wonld probably have perished in the flames but for the assist? ance of William Holler. But little prop? erly was gotten out and that was so badly burned and broken as to be almost worth la??. 1 he los? is a heavy one to this afflicted fimiiy, an?? appeals strongly to tbe sympathies and charitable feelings of oar people. a Specimen Cnass. . .
