A horrible scandal has recently
been set afloat in this county. It is
rumored that a young lady at Ruth
erford Station; to spite her father,
who objected to her marrying the
mau of her choice, deliberately ihrew
herself into the embraces of a negro
man, thus disgracing herself and ren
dering frantic her family. She is
said to be a beautiful and accom
plished young woman, and has been
quite a belli in her neigh'ooihood.
For the sake of decency and good
morals, we hope the story has been
Burned to Death.
A heart-rending accident happened
near Hope Hili laet Monday. Elias
Butler, aged about forty years, was
burning some log heaps, w hen he was
suddenly attacked with a fit and fell
into the fire. No one was present, but
it is supposed that he recovered con
sciousness very soon, as his body was
I found over one hundred vards distant
in some biush. His clothing was all

He was a good citizen, and was well

bales were shipped from here 155

making a total of 4538 to April 1st.
lnls just more than was shipped
to the same time last year, and only
36 less than the total of Ia.-t year's
shipments. We believe there nae
several hundred bales in the country
around hero yet, which will make
nearly fiv3 thousand.
