Excursion of Canton No. 1 A Gala
Day for our Gallant Fiiemen.
Thurslay morning last, our gal
lant tireinun, with their engine and
hose carriage, and accompanied by
a largo number of citizens, many
of whom were ladies, left tho depot
on a special train for Kosciusko.
jThe cars were well tillwd when tho
train left Cauton, and at each sta
tion new accessions were bail, and
by the tinio the train reached its
destination it was pneked and jam
med. Arriving at Kosciusko, tho excur
sionists were greeted at the depot
by a largo delegation of citizens,
many of whom were ladies. The
tiremcu disembarked with their en
gine, and headed by the Canton
Brass Band marched through the
city, while the rest of tho ex
cursionists repaired to the picnic
grounds, where delightful shade and
cool spring water abounded.
Tho company and engine having
arrived at the grounds, several elo
quent and appropriate speeches
wero made, Capl. Anderson, Mayor
of Kosciusko, opening with a wel
come address. Alter the speeches
tho baskets were opened and good
things in abundance wero spread,
and everybody invited to partake.
The dinner was enjoyed by all.
Shortly after (tinner the steamer
was tired up, and took water near
the picnic grounds. We do not re
member ever to have seen tho i n
gine work better or thriw water
more steadily or to a greater dis
tance than on this occasion. It was
a novel sight to many of our coun
try cousins, and they were unstint
ed in their praises of tho steamor
ard our firemon.
The excursion left Kosciusko
about 5 o'clock p.m., and without
accidont, and every heart brim full
of happiness, arrived at Canton at
9:30. All who took part in it were
pleased with the trip, delighted wi'.h
tho hospitality of the good people
of Kosciusko, and thankful to the
inaugurators of the excursion lor
the pleasure aft'orded.

Klitor Citnton Mild :
j Our little town is in quite a com
i motion on account of a very bold
robbery committed on the office !
j the Sou' hern Express Company on
the night of the While our cs-
I timable young friend and agent was
taking supper, and bis assistant was
out paying a call, the depot build
ing was entered by a burglar, who
by means of some lever power priz
ed oil' the " catch " of the door, and
accomplishing this be bad no ob
stacle in his way, and by the light
of a dim lamp, which the agent had
only turned down for a few minutes,
be made his way to the desk in which
he must have known the money
was contained, and by the assistance
of a chisel or screw-driver forced
open tho door and borrowed a pack
age containing S' ll. (six hundred
and twenty-five dollars), leaving a
smaller amount still ri maiuiiig. Af
ter procuring the booty for which
lie ran such a risk, be made his way
to Loch's stable, drew the staple,
and borrowed his horse, on w hich
he immediately absconded.
Several of tho voting men heard
the noise, but not suspecting any
thing of the kind made no interfer
ence. Bennett, the agent, return
e l at 0:30 o'clock, and to his aston
ishment found the doors broken
open and the express package gone.
He called in assistance, and found
tracks 13J inches in length, but on
account of the drj- weather could
not follow them in the dark. At
six o'clock next morning I.oeb's
horse returned, having the appear
ance of a young man who had been
out courting that night tired and
sleepy. Mr. Bennett immediately
telegraphed to head quarters and
two defectives have arrived and are
looking into the affair and think
they have made the discovery of
tho instruments usd in breaking
tho doors, but they arc altogether
Off the track, as the information
they have picked up can be readily
accounted for.
Madison has some very suspicious
negroes loafing around and circum
stances implicate one of the Orang-out-ang
desceuduiit.s who has two
feet that make a yar I. Tiio neigh
borhood is very enthusiastic in the
spirit of dotectiwn, and will spare
no trouble in catching the thief.
They the Express Co. have of
fered a reward and have telegraph
ed for tbeir lawyer and several de
tectives and seem intent in having
the thief, if not the money, which
ho has forgotten to return.
We sympathize with our young
friend Bennett, tho' the Co. cannot
make hint loose it, as they lnve
neither furnished him a safe or an
assistant, except that he pay the as
sistant from his own salary.
Yours,
Tor.y Twinkle.

pose in view, which- is, or should be, to
permanently remedy the evil. The use of
drastic ealharties is especially to be di
preciated, for although they temporarily
overcome costiveiu-ss, vet the intestines

Klitur Canton Mail:
I writo you to day, givin-r soma
local news from this locality that
would likely interest some of your
readers who wish lo learn the gen
eral condition of matters and things
in the well to do county of Leake.
first, tho condition of crops is
good. Corn is rather small, but in
fine condition for growing Cotton
is looking unusually well ; not so
large however ns is usual for ibis
season cd the year, but has the ap
pearance of vigor ami body which
is all essential in the production of
a good crop. Wheat is generally
good; some ru-t in that planted
late, but there will be a siillicicncy
raised for home consumption, an I
the quality of grain is as good as
anv raised in tho wheat growing
states north of us. Mr. It. L. John
son, a farmer of this locality, plant
ed last fall about three fourths of an
acre of red clay land, well manured,
with a wheat known as the purple
straw variety, and be cut iton Mon
dav last and the result of his labor
will be not less than twenty-five
bushels of good, plump wheat, which
speaks for itself and vindicates your
oft repeated warnings to our far. ti
ers to raise home supplies and let
cotton be only a secondary consid
eration, thereby rendering them
selves prosperous and independent
of the moneyed rings and spocul -tors
of the West. Gardens are look
ing finely ; and wo have milk in
abundance. We can live with but
little meat. Some farmers have a
sufficiency of home raising to servo
ihcin the present year, others are
dependent on tho merchant for what
they consume, thereby involving
themselves' to some extent for the
present year.
Beef cattlo are plenty in some
parts ot tho county, and can be
brought at reduced rates. Sheep
aro scarce and in demand; but there
is some enterprise exhibited as to the
raising of bheep ; a few (locks of
improved blood in the county.
I'ruit tolerably good; injured by
!ato frosts to some extent.
There is some little cxcitcme'tit as
to whom our next county officers
will be, and will not subside into
quietude until after our primary
election. As for Hadicals, this
county is not a genial clime for the
propagation of that species of man
kind. Its mode ot civil govern
ment under tho present administra
tion is too repulsive to their honest
souls. The monstrositys of a true
administration of law and justice is
more than they can endure. They
desire a field of rapine and plan
dor, where they can can revel in
the proceeds ot the lax payer's hard
earnings, and treat their impreca
tions lor redress with scorn and
open contempt, as did one Adelberl
Ames treat the tax-payer's petition
of recent date. However it is but
chracieristic of all demons iu hu
man flesh, such as ihey are known
to be all over this land where they
iiavo the power-". When we s:-y
Badicals, wo do notmean all men of
the Bcpublican party, but that class
who seek office and power in order
that they may enrich themselves
from the public funds of our people,
and not lor the purpose of an honest
administration of the laws justice
and equal rights to all men which
would prove socondusive to the pros
perity ot our down trodden South.
But with such patriots and states
men as Col. O. B- Singleton of your
county to carry our banners in the
coining Congressional contest, the
Hadicals will tind that matters have
greatly changed iu their original
tanks, and it they succeed at all,
their majority will bo so small that
it will prove to them a withering
and deadly rebuko for then- former
deeds and doings to a vanquished,
though honorable people. Let us be
united iu tho coming contest upon
liberal principles and plutf rms
receive into our ranks all men of
whatever nationality who are op
posed to Radicalism in any and all
of its forms and the result is al
most certain to be iu favor of the
adlierauts of constitutional liberty
and true Itcj ublicau government in
Ibis couutry ; and when this most
desirable end shall have been con
st! mated,the supportcrs.of centra I i.a
tionaud the one man power will hav j
been effectually repulsed, and will
thus remain until another deea-le of
years shall have passed away. If
ever again they ascend lo power,
their principles and doings must
radically change, as they have al
ready become repugnant to all sound
thinking classes of the American
people.
With my best wishes for your
success in vindicating our cause
of right and justice, 1 remain sir, as
ever,
Your obedient servant,
Pkes. Guoves.
