On Tuesday evening as John Rodgers was
carrying a load of guano to his homo in
Wilkes county, ana while near Baker’s
Ferry, i Elbert county, h fell from his
wagon and was horribly crus ed beneath
the wheels of the loaded wagon. As lie fell
the left hand was extended across his breast
and partially protected the thin bones of the

it was the breast bones and ribs wen- heard
to grind beneath the pondrous load upon

Albany Kens and Advertiser: A recent
drive through tlio country confirms the re
pOfti of the maturity and opening of the
top gotten bolls. There was never a more
favorable fall tor the opening and the gath
ering of the top crop. The warm open
weather for the past month has materially
helped th* planters in maturing bolls that
they had no expectation of gathering any
thing from, and the fields are now white,
ready for the pickers. Albany's receipts
will be increased 1,000 bales or more, jwr
haps, and we doubt not but that the next
estimate of the Agricultural Bureau will bo
increased fully 3 per cent.

TO&rfiStabl&bukSht. cleverly put, together.
SUot tools as hatchets, laws, planes, braces
and bits, knives, ilrawing knives. Hies,keys,
etc., are painted on the sign, each imple
ment being at onco recognizable, and, at the
same time so placed as to form cleur and
complete letters. The sign is the handi
work of Mr. Bennett himself, and he says
that the formation of some of tho letters
was only accomplished after much study.

night. After being out until alter low 12,
the dogs treed, and in contemplation of ‘ fat
’possum and taters” the quartette made a
break for the game, and as subsequent
event* proved, all got there in good time, in
cluding Eli. The game was located, and by
a vigorous shal e of the limb upon which he
was perched lie relaxed his hold ami struck
terra firms among the dogs. Tho fun was
now at its height and tliequurtette gathered
around just ns the varment got good mad.
It w a polecat, and the quartette are all
wearing different suits this morning, and
have made up their minds to investigate tho
next varment before making too minute an
examination.
Buchanan Banner: A gold vein twelve
inche* in thickness lies lieen struck on the
farm of John W. Tomlinson, three miles
west Of Buchanan, and if the ore is half as
good as that shown us, he has one of the
richest in Georgia. Uncle Bilbo Stephens is
an experienced miner, and lias lieen at, work
on Mr. Tomlinson’s land for several mouths,
and is highly elated over the “find.” Mr.
Waldrop showed us some specimens, just
taken out, in which the gold was plainly
visible without tht aid o( a glass. Mr. Tom
linson will put in ma viinery to work the
quartz if the present indications bold good,
and be ii confi ent he has a good thing.
There is plenty of gold and iron iu this sec
tion which only require development to
prove it one of the richest mineral sections

On Monday a colored boy stepped in IVil
liams’ store at Hartwell. One or the clerks
laid a half cremated cigar on the counter to
wait upon a customer. The darkey
saw it, coveted it, and slyly picked it up.
The clerk noticed the procedure, uud con
eluded to give the darkey a scare. Accus
ing him of larceny, bo ran to the door and
called for Marrhal Carter. The thoroughly
frightened negro made a break for the back
door and jumping the fence, crossed lots
until he reached Howell street, down which
he ran like a quarter horse, passing the resi
dence of High Sheriff James Roberts. The
Sheriff saw him, and naturally concluded
that he bad either stolen something valuable
or killed somebody, so he put out after the
fleeing darkey with his utmost speed. After
a two-mile run the Sheriff gave up. When
he learned what t :e colored boy was fleeing
for his disgust was complete.

At Camden, Tuesday, a novel point was
raised by Trial Justice Blakenev in the civil
case of McCandless vs. Hat field, Mr. Wink
ler for the plaintiff and Capt. (Shannon for
the defense. Both sides wished the Trial
Justice to deeido the question, and both re
fused to have a jury. The Trial Justice
took the ground that his business wits to
decide points of law brought liefore him,
but that it was not his province to pass upon
the facts, and decided not to hear the case
unices a jury was impaneled. The attorneys
appealed and the Circuit Judge will la*
looked to for a ruling in the ease. This is
meant a* a test case to decide a point of in
terest. in Camden. Nearly all of the Cam
den bar seem to think that the Trial Justice
will have to try the case without a jury.

A petition to the Legislature relating to
the Columbia Canal is being circulated
in Columbia and lias received Hundreds of
signatures. The substance of the petition is
as follows: If the State will turn over the
canal for the benefit of Columbia and fur
nish 200 convicts fufe* twq years, we are of
the opinion that the taxpayers of Columbia
will readily furnish the means to complete
the canal down to Tar Branch, below Pen
dleton street, and within two years furnish
the Penitentiary with 500-horse power, and
500 horse power more which the State is
under contract to furnish Sullivan Fenner,
we, the undersigned taxpayers and business
men of the city of Columbia, therefore re
spectfully petition your honorable bodies to
pass the bill which will lie submitted at this
session of tho Legislature, the general fea
tures of which are that tne State shall turn
over to five trustees, for the benefit of Co
lumbia. the canal, and furnish the labor of
200 couvicts for two years. That the trus
tees have power to mortgage the canal and
issue bonds to the amount of $200,000, bear
ing interest at 8 per cent., and that tlio city
lie empowered to guarantee the payment of
the interest of the bonds, that 1,000-horse
power be furnished the State, and that the
canal be completed from its source to Tar
Branch within two years from the passage

The parties charged with whipping a
white woman and a colored man on last
Sunday night in the upper port ion of Ches
ter county, a few miles from Wilksburg,
have been arrested. They gave bond for
their appearance at a preliminary exami
nation to be held this week before Trial
Justice Biers. They are as follows: G. H.
Smith. 11. W. Smith, Robert Jamison, John
McCarley, David Good anil Fitz Brawley.
■As related by a trustworthy person,
it appears that the perpetrators of the act
came to the house of the woman, who lived
with her mother, about 11 o’clock at night,
compelled her to go with them some dis
tance, and then gave her a whipping.
Having done this they took her to a house not
far from her mother’s home, awoke the
occupant, and told him they would leave
the woman in his care. They rode off and
he went home with her. She will have some
difficulty in establishing the guilt of the
parties; whom she has charged with com
mitting au outrage upon her. They were
disguised, and the act was committed under
cover of darkness. Having punished this
white woman they proceeded to the house
of Jack Good (colored), with whom she was
charged to have had improper relations,
took him out and whipped him.
The neighborhood is stirred up in
regard to this lawless work of the reg
ulators. A prominent citizen from that
portion of the county, who lives within two
miles of the woman who has been punished,
says he does not believe she is guilty of tho
sin alleged against her.
Florence Times: Mclver Williamson, one
of the most prominent extensive farmers iu
this county, met with a remarkable and ap
palling accident a few days ago on his place.
As lie was approaching his stationary engine
by his gin house it was very active putting
up volumes of sooty smoke. As he got
within 17 paces of the engine suddenly
he felt the earth throb, quiver and tremble
as if jn the convulsive spasm of an earth
quake, followed instantly by a terrific ex
plosion, resembling the discharge of a park
of artillery. For a few seconds a thick
smoke enveloped e erything, and pre
vented him from telling what bad occurred.
When Hie smoko lifted he saw that
the boiler of the engine had ex
ploded. the crown sheet hemp- ’ ’•>-
oat The f’..,which v.ao aoout twelve
feet, from the ginhouse, was thrown bodily
fifty feet in the air. then turned a complete
somersault, and shot like a bolt in a bee
line through the solid wall of the upper
story, like a bullet would through cheese,
making as complete a wreck of that side of
the ginhouse as if 'tw ere a house of cards,
twisting and rending asunder huge eight
inch sills as if they were pine steins. It
then lodged itself in the second story of the
ginhouse, where it is now. The engine
house was literally wrecked, not a shingle
remaining intact, and every timber torn
and splintered liko kindling wood, its frag
ments lieing scattered for 800 yards, like
loaves in an autumn gale. The force of the
concussion blew cotton out of the bales.
Strange it is that no one was hurt.
An Episode of the War.
From the leifayette Uia.) Messenger.
On our return from the exposition we
met Mr. Allison, formerly of Lade, but now
couuected with the company that bought
the Cooper Iron Works in Bartoiv. During
the war. when a boy, he lived on the Ten
nessee, near Kelly’s ford, a day’s ride above
Chattanooga. A spy had been captured in
Chattanooga by the Confederates, but
had escaped, though so c'oselv pur
sued he had to go into hiding.
One morning Mr. Allison's father
started to his trot lines in the river.
A heavy fog obscured everything. Kiat
denly ho came upon a half-frozen, miserable
looking specimen of a man, who seemed
overcome with terror. When asked who he
was, be answered tremblingly that he was
an escaped and hunted spy, and Unit his life
was in liis captor's handMr. Allison,
who was an ardent secessionist, told him
that he didn't want his life, and to take him
self off to the devil. The man then told
him that he was starving. Mr. Allison
took him to his house, gave him a change of
clothes, fed him. and with the hearty eoti
ourreuce of hr- wife kept him a day or two.
Then be told him that tne thing must end
and that he must leave. Taking him down
to the river at night, he gave him a skiff,
directed him to keep in the middle of tho
stream mid trust to the current taking him
to the Yankee lines at Bridgeport. There
thev parted.
Time passed on. Meawhile Mr. Allison
had moved some miles from the ferry. Tho
iatc of war brought a swarm of Federnls,
under the command of Gen Hooker, to his
section. He was stripped of everything but
one cow. One day Gen. Hooker, after
learning his name, inquired it h>* had
ever lived at Kelly’s Ferry. When
he learned that lie had, u guard was thrown
round his house, that lone cow was taken to
the General’s headquarters, fed, and, in
charge of u detail, was sent back every ilav
to be milked by Mrs. Allison. The bread
that hail his-n cast uiwn the waters had re
turned after iuaqy days. But who was the
spy and what was his fate*
Growth of Channel Traffic.
From the London Times.
Recent official statistic; demonstrate the
extraordinary growth of tho Continental
pusseugcr traffic between Dover and Dalai.-.
In 1851 the number of passengers by this
route was only 04,1187. l.nt I*w it had in
creased to “15.1*84. In 1855. when the'Paris
Exhibition was held, the traffic rose to 80,-
8: id: but from Hi is date there was a falling off
to the extent of 10,000 per untittm until
th year of the London Exhibition, when it
suddenly rose to 151.050 In 1807, the year
of the second Paris Exhibition, the traffic
ease to 000,160 persons. From this date
there war. a decline to the extent
of 50,000 per annum, and in 1870. tbe year
of Hi” Franco-German war, the number
was: 108,1 m. lii the course of the next set on
years there was a gradual increase, and in
1878, the year of the International Exhi
bition at Paris, the traffic reached tbe
enormous total of !M)o,fio6 ]>er.soiis. Again
there was a subsidence, the average for the
next six years lieing aiioiit :.00,000. last
year, ns stated above, the total was ’115,984;
mid during the first eight months of the
present \ear 160,78“ persons had crossed.
In addition to the Calais route, then.' are
three other services daily crossing between
Dover and Ostend, and over these routes a
considerable i early U’uau takes vlaca.
THOSE PROJECTILES.
They Bring Up Recollections of Days
of tho Confederacy.
fVom the Mm nri (frV. i Telegraph.
Mention was mafic a lew day* ago of the
finding, by (’apt. Wilcox, Snjiei-iiitondent
of the works of the MacOn Gaslight Slid
Water Company, of a lot of solid shot in a
clav hank at tho water works.
Meeting Mnj. C. T.. Findlay yesterday lie
gave tbe true explanation as to tho man
ner in which they found their way into the
clay.
What is now known as the Findlay Iron
Works was during (he war tho Confederate
States’ arsenal, ami was in charge of Col.
itichard Cuvier. Numerous projectiles
were made, both shell and solid shot, as
well os grape, canister, shrapnel, etc. Ihe
first testing place was in the clay banks iu
the locality in which tho water works are
now situated. These projectile* were of all
shapes, and many experiments were made,
nearly all ’the tcsis being made under the
direction o£ Maj. Findlay and Maj. N. M.
Hodgkins.
Tho clay bank* just.rnoutionod were ftded
with shot, the giui* being planted on what
is now known a* Gunn’s place. It is sup
posed that the percolating water, tho soft
ness of the clay and the weight of the shot,
many of them weighing over 50 pounds,
caused tlyon to drop together ill a pile, and
thus the Cave was formed.
After this testing place was abandoned n
clay bank in South Macon, on Second street,
was utilized for the purpose.
The arsenal, as stated, was in command
of Col. Cuyler. and the laboratory was in
command of Maj. T. C. Downie, with the
late Capt . .Tames Falethorpe to. assistant..
The building used for the laboratory was
that now occupied by Lowery & Cos., on
Poplar street, near the synagogue. Tho
building was erected and used fora slave
mart, and thousands of negroes have l>een
sold w ithin its walls. In the latter days of
the war the capacity of tho laboratory was
increased by tin- erection of a large building
iu the shape of an L. on tho corner on which
the synagogue now stands. In this some live
hundred girls and boys made cartridges,
friction primers, Roman candles and rock
ets for signals, fuses, etc., and also to fill
the shells made at the arsenal.
Macon, by reason of its position, was fast
becoming the distributing depot for ammu
nition and supplies. When tho war ended
the armory in Southwest Macon, and Hie
laboratory, near Vineville, two handsome
and costly structures, were nearing comple
tion. Every vestige of the armory proper
has lieeii destroyed, and the people walk
every day upon pavements lain with the
stone, of which there was an immense
quantity, that composeda part of (he build
ing and its foundation. The building now
used for Lang’s knitting factory was an
annex of the laboratory.
The magazine, which was kept full of
powder, was the depot of the old Macon ard
Western railroad, and pretty St. Paul’s
Church stands on the spot formerly occu
pied by it.
At u point three or four miles from tho
city, on the Central railroad, the fuse--made
at the laboratory were tested. A target
made of heavy logs of wood against an em
bankment. was made, and the projectiles
fired at it. The fuse- were made so exact
that they wore calculated by seMnils and
half seconds. Sometimes when the largest
shells were sent against this mammoth
target, the work of destruction was terrific.
The shells were so timed that they would
explode just as the target was touch'd.
The laboratory ulso served as a t raining
school. There were hundreds of boys, the
fathers of nearly all of them being in tl e
army, who were patriotic enough to want
to do something for their country, and being
too young to be received in the army, wojj
od there, and as soon as they arrived the
proper age, would leave to jovu. die forces in
the field.
When St oneiric n \vav captured around
Macon by G '..'.ver-on, there were com pa
- v dj up of the employes of the arsenal
anil laboratory, who assisted iu the cap
ture, anil on other occasions when the eiiy,
was airout to be invaded by the enemy, the
Ordnance battalion, as it was then known,

BRUIN ON A RAMPAGE.
He Makes His Appearance in the
Midst of a Medical Class.
JVoui the Augusta U>.) Chronicle.
Friday afternoon about 1 o’clock ‘‘Old
Tom,’’ the general utility man at the Medi
cal College, who turns a stray penny by
peddling peanuts anil apples to the students
m attendance at the session of the college,
opened the side door of his humble store
room where his stock in trade was kept,
well pleased tvitn the profits of his morning
peddling. In the language of Tom: “Boss,
’twas frightful to see a real live bear a
reared up on his hind legs an’ er ent in'
away of my fine apples.’’ Toni, who
is nearing the allotted age of man,
rushed up and caught the bear by tlio hind
logs and pulled him away from that tempt
ing layout of apples. But tho hear only
grunted and made for the apples again.
Tom pulled him away again and again.
Tom pulled his bearship away. Tom then
went for a good sized />ieoe of binding wood
and felling blow alter blow on the liear,
who was now lieginning to 10-<- the excellent
temper that the apples had produced, and
was showing his teeth in an ugly way when
“Uncle" Tom made off w ith the apples. The
bear, then latching a wind of the
“blood of an Englishman,” made fir
the lecturing room where the students
were congregated. A small boy, who
was bringing dinner to someone, was near:
ly thrown into sputum ami the dinner
wrecked at the sight of bruin. But bruin
took a notion to go into the museum, and
would have soon effected on entrance had
not two negro women armed with pails
which contained some tempt ing viands for
him, caused him to forsake his curiosity h r
his appetite, and following' closely uittr
them he was decoyed back to ivir. A. .T.
Twigg s yuid, from where he had effected
his escape. U ncle Tom is thinking serious
ly of putting in a claim for “them’’ upples
eaten, and declares that he “knowed all de
time it was a tame b’ar.”'
ENGLISH AND AMERICAN CRAFT.
Why Lieut. Henn Thinks the American
Yacht is Superior.
Lieut. JI elm has written to the London
Field his views concerning American sail
ing craft as follows: “Their ordinary coast
ing schooners would give many of our cruis
ing schooner-' adits, all they could do to
beat them, and most of the Gloucester fish
ing schooners, to say not hing of the pilot
boats, can leave most of our cruising yachts
out of sight. The average American'cruis
ing yacht is* 1 think, kept in better order,
with fewer men in proportion to her size
and spread of canvas, than ours arc.
The discipline on heard is better
and vessels are very much faster.
This last is in some measure due to
the fact that they carry more canvas in
proportion than our cruisers do. and ns a
rule their sails are better cut and set,. But
taking them all round, our cruising vessels
are superior ns regard * accommodation be
low. The new type of centerboard sloops
and schooners ought, to be pretty well
known hero by this time, so that, it is need
less for me to say more, i xoept that all this
talk about their being unseawortliy vessels
is sheer nonsense. Under certain conditions
of wind and weather tho Genesta, or Ga
latea might )>erhaps prove drier and easier.
But for speed, especially to the windward,
in ordinary regatta weather, there is no
question in my opinion of their superiority
to anything we have at present. Any one
who is called upon to design a keel boat to
beat a keel boat which, in addition, carries
a centerboard, which all Burgess boats do,
will have a pretty big contract, and a fail
ure is more likely than success.”
