The phenomenon of a negro com
mitting suicide, and for love, has just
been witnessed in the Old Oomimon
It is said to be tlio first case of the
kind on record.
Col. Colyar is doing the work for the
low credit party, as uc calls them, and
other, win get tne reward, for even
that party will be afraid to run Colyar
lor any nigu omce.
Col. Colyar said last Monday that
tne u.ptiouc ns would unite with the
high credit J)..'m:x:rats in the next can
vass. If this be so, what will become
of Col. Colyar's repudiating porty?
We owe a:i ai)io i our readers
for giving so much sp ice to Col. Col
yar, but the request to publish his
speech makes this necessary. We
promise them it will not occur again
Justueh speeches as those of Col.
Colyar, by destroying confidence and
-discouraging men, do a great deal to
produce Hard times and to nnike bard
times even worse than they otherwise
Col. Colyar said if the policy of the
Federal Government was changed he
would le in favor ofputting Tennessee
under heavy bond to pay her Ht&U
debt. How do those who are opposed
to paying the debt like this doctrine?
'Col. C"'yar said tliat until the Fede
Val Government changed its linancial
policy, h would be in favor of every
iSauthero .Sttta refusing to pay its pub
lic debt. Why did he not go farther and
ny that all debt, public and private,
due Northern men, should not be paid?
"Xliat ls M'hat his argument meant.

Col. Colyar, instead of answering J
It. Goodpasture's speech, said that the
young man, iu speakiag-of the re
sources of Ten nessee, took the produc
tions of the whole United states as the
productions of Tea nessee, and became
confused. No such tiling appears in
the speech, and we again repeat. Col.
Colyar has not .answered, and cannot
answer, that upeech, . -
How does Col, Colyar's statement

Tribune wanting an army sent to Ten

our 'bonds, agree with the fact that a
committee of New York Bankers rec

The Silver Bill, as it passed both
Houses of Congress, was vetoed by
Hayes. His veto message was admit
ted bv nil to lie a verv weakdocument.
The Bill was passed over Hayes's ve
to, in Dotn nouses, in lour nours, uy
maionties largely exceeding tne nee'
esary two-thirds. The 'effect of the
bill has shown that the predictions of
its enemies were not true. It lias not
affected the credit of the Government
in the slightest degree. It it is prop
erly executed it will afford great relief
to the country, ty making silver more
plentiful, fsiiver and gold will soon
oe on an equality, and as the volume
of the currency increases," the business
interest of the country - will revive.
If foundto be detective in any par
ticular, in its practical workings, it
can be amendedand improved.
Col. Colyar speaks of the 'Attor
neys of the high tax parly taking
judgment by default at the conven
tions." This is very small (lemagog
ism. He knows there are noattorjieys
ol the high tax party, if there are at
torneys of the? Penitentiary Lessees
May there not be a King whose object
as to bring down bonds, that they
mi-iy speculate in them, and may
they not have attorneys?
What authority Uas Col. Colyar for
statement that a single association
nf thLs cw York money power owns
ten mliiioiw " of our l-mcls. We do not
lnlieve he has W authority.
Su.h unfounded nsiuons as these
are intended to iullamc the ;uissions of
our people, and to lead them .'Uto re
pudiation of debts which Mr. Co.yar
admits to be valid and just.
AYlicn did Col. Colyar become so
Solid f the Democratic party? Was

didate fiw fiovernor, or was it when he
ran as an IndeieiHlent candidate for

Information was received here this
evening of a scandal which led to a
tragedy, in Clay county. The location
is in the ghain of the Jlue .Ridge, in
tne western-part ot wortli Carolina
Miss Ada MeClay is the daughter of
the late lion. Itichard MeClay. who
was a wealthy ana esteemed farmer
and politician of the county just
nanied. She is twenty-two years of
age, beautiful, refined and accomplish
ed, fone was educated at a seminary
in Lexington, Ky., having graduated
there with the usual honors, about
four years ago. J ust after leaving her
alma mater she made her debut at the
White Sulphur Sprinir, West Virgiir
ia, and has visited that place of fash
ionable resort every summer since.
it seems that a year aeo last summer
sbe met there a Mr. W m. I Shel-
burne, a handsome and polished gen
tleman of twenty-six. The couple fell
in love, courtship followed and they
were betrothed. He lived' in New Or
leans, and had visited Mis-s MeClay
only three or four times at her home
m Clay county, but liad kept up a
regular correspondence. He had not
seen ber lor ten months until last
Monday, when he came to fulfill his
plighted troth. The day set was the
istinst. yesterday. I hey were duly
married, the nuptial ceremony takimr
place at noon. The company in at
tendance was not larare, but it was ele
gant and aristocratic.
lue afternoon and evening were
spent in wedding festivities. audit was
a late hour when the bride and groom
retired to rest. But then oh, sad to
teli:-Shelbui'iie discovered that 14s
fair 'bride was enceinte, in a raee
he blasphemed ami raised the deuce.
Ho threatened to kill her in his frenzy,
and only desisted on the condition
that sho would reveal the name of her
seducer. This she refused to do at first,
but finally told mm that Simpson
Forrester was the man. He liyeel ad
joining the MeClay mansion, and hail
recently graduated at one ot tho col
leges in Virginia. He was only twenty-two
years of age, but had the repu
tation of being gallant, and at the
White Sulphur last summer was a fa
vorite with the belles. Shelburne's
ride declared that this Ijothario had
accomplished her tutu live mopthsago,
auu lUfti sne iiaa sworn never to be
tray him. He visited the house like
an intimate friend, and last night he
was one of the gayest of the gay at tlio
fental boad, ' - '
At six o'clock this morning Shel
burne pulled on his clothes, armed
himself with a double barreled shot
gun and went to Forrester's home.
The young bride followed, screaming
and beseeching him not to shoot her
destroyer, that she hail forgiven him.
But Shelburne was determined. He
aroused the Forrester family, consist
ing of two or three sisters and the
mother, and called for the guilty man.
Forrester feigned surprise when he
laced Shelburne, and denied, knowing
anything about the lady's shame, Only
a few words ensued, when Shelburne
banged away, discharging a load of
buckshot into ttie sliQulUer of his en-
my, who had no weapon of defense
ihe wounded man exclaimed: "I am
