GEORGIA AND FLORIDA. NEWS OF THE TWO STATES TOLD IN PARAGRAPHS. A Woman Running a Stationary Engine in the Service of the East Tennessee Road—Bussey’s Mill Near Chauncey Burned—fire Near Mar shallville—An Independent's Race in Bibb County. GEORGIA. Thomas K. Wynne of Columbns, once an an editor, died in that city early Sunday morning. C. R. Jones trill begin the publication of the Chickamnuga Manner at Lafayette in February next. It Is said that Alderman Madden will lead the ticket in the coining election for mayor and aldermen of Brunswick. How true this is remains to be seen. At Union church, Irwinton, Sunday, Miss Jennie Hatfield, daughter of John Hatfield, was married to J. T. Miller. Rev. J. W. Kelly performed the core riony. T. V. Bussey’s mill, near Chauncey, was destroyed by fire on Friday night last The loss is estimated at #2,000. The fire is sup pose i to have been the work of an incen diary. There was no insurance on the prop erty. Haman, the Worth county man confined in jail at Macon on the charge of stealing sheep in that county, is a geuiu=. Ho has recently male a couple of rat traps of wine o: tamed from buckets and brooms, which are equal to any traps to be bought in the hardware stores. Friday at Hendricks Mill, seven miles north of Jaeksou, Willie Hendrick was shot and killed instantly by Dick Fincher. The kil.ing is supposed to have been accidental, as Fincher and Hendrick were trying to swap guns and pistols. Fincher, however, tells several tales about the killing. Both were white. Fincher is in jail. “A bighotel” seems ti be the all absorb ing topic among the people of Americus. This project, which has been talked and written about so much, now see ns to he taking on a definite shape. A petition for incorporation has been filed, and the wotk will be commenced as soon as practicable. The cotton factory, so much talked of for awhile, has about fallen through. At a late meeting of the Macon Medical Society the following gentlemen were elect ed officers of the society: Dr. N. G. Ge winner, president; Dr. W. R. Winchester, vice president; Dr. H. McHatton, secretary nnd treasurer: Dr. W. F. Holt, correspond ing secretary: Dr. C. J. Toole, reporter, and Dr. C. H. Hall, librarian. The society is in a flourishing condition and promises to be of great benefit to its members. Sunday was the first day F.ank Mercer of Albanj- has been out in some time, having been confined to his room from be ing poisoned. He had been worried by chills and fever for some time, and not being atle to break tbe chills up by the usual remedies, he resorted to a largely advertised patent pill. He took several heavy doses, paving no attention to direc tions. and was prostrated, and came near dying. The gin house of J. E. Haslam, about five miles from Marshallville, was burned Sun day night about 10 o’clock. It contained five bales of seed cotton, and seed from sev enty-five bales. J. B. Jones had the place rented, and the 1 ss will be quite severe to him. It is thought to tie the work of an incendiary. There have been frequent in cendiary fires in that community, and if the peri etrators of such could be caught an ex ample would be made of them that would be an infallible cure for such crimes. The exposition has greatly advanced Au gusta’s recognition as a winter resort. A number of nor.hern men havealready rmde their arrangements for spending the winter there. A prominent northern gentleman who will spend the winter there remarked to a reporter that a great future awaits Augusta as a resort for northerners. He has ent for his horses, and expects to be joined hv friends who were last season in Thomas ville. He particularly admires the drives and characteristic scenery about Augusta. A person might search the world ovor and not find another woman who is capaci tated for managing even a stationary eu piue. The East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia Railroad Company can boast of a woman of this description in the person of Mrs. Rebecca Boutwell, who for noirly thirteen years has attended to the running of the engine and pump ued in filling the tank with water just below Eastman. She is thoroughly competent to do this work, managing the Hancock inspirator, a por tion of the machinery used for supplying the boiler with water, and of which it is said the inventor himself could not explain. On Saturday evening the train from Griffin for Columbus killed a young girl, about 14 years old, half a mile beyond Concord. The girl, a Miss Owens, was deaf, and had been out walking looking for a younger brother, and had sat down upon the end of a crosstie to rest, with ler back turned in the direction of the approaching train. The engineer saw her and blew his whistle, when the unfortunate girl turned and seeing the approaching train sprang to her feet and either staggered or stepped upon the track just ahead of the engine and was instantly killed. Her remains were brought to Griffin and buried Mon day. At Calhoun the three new brick buildings of H. K. Hicks, W. M. Hughey and N. H. McGinniss will be finished in about ten days, and will be in their holiday drosses by the middle of the first week in Decem ber. Work was resumed on the Methodist church Monday morning, and will he pushed to completion except the seats. The outside painting was .commenced last week. Work on the Baptist church is going on slowly. Calhoun has received ana shipped up to this date 1,723 bales o cotton this season against 1,570 for same date last season showing an increase of 153 bales, though the cotton crop in this section is not as good as last year. Near Chipley Sunday, a serious difficulty occurred between John Rivers, white, and a colored farm hand. It appears that Mr. Rivers had been missing his cane sugar at tbe mill, and having watched it the night before, found the negro’s daughter was car rying it away. He laid the lash to tho ne gro girl with a strap, and also the wife who interfered. The negro being told of those things, became wrathy and swore vengenee, and proceeded at once to load his shot gun with slugs and bullet*. Upon meeting Mr. Rivers he fired at him, missing him, where upon Mr. Rivers drew his pistol, emptying four balls at him. The negro suspecting that all the cartridges in tho pistol were spent, went back firing, emptying a full load in the loin* of tho white man. How ever, Mr. Rivers got two more loads at the negro, but did not touch him either time. Mr. Rivers is in a serious condition. Tho negro is still at large. The first case coming under the Wood ward ordinance was tried at Atlanta, Mon day, before Police Judge Anderson. The case was against the Atlanta and Charlotte Air Line, and the road was charged with moving empty freight cars over the White hall street crossing during the day time. Henry Jackson appeared for the railroad company and showed a letter from Mayor Cooper in which he states that in Viis opinion the Woodward ordinance did not contemplate tho transfer of empty cars with loaded ones from one road to another. On this letter the railroads have moved empty cars over tho crossings. Judge Andeison slated that in this instance, as the railroads had acted under what they thought a proper construction of the ordi nance, he would not enter a fine, but he wanted it understood that the Woodward ordinance meant jus what it said, and the next railroad company arraigned for vio lating any provision of the ordinance need look for no mercy at his hands. Ell Hatfield, a well-to-do fa: mer living nesr Borden spring, fourteen miles from Cedartown, oommited suicide at his home. A strange mania has possessed tho unfortun ate man for some time past. In tho easiest worldly ciicumsUucej, with property suf- fieient to give any man a feeling of security for the futureof his loved ones, with friends end credit second to none, Mr. H ;t field has been, it is said, possessed with tiio idea, at times more strong than at others, t hat they were on tho verge of starvation. The mania seems to have taken hold of him whenever any little business trouble arose, whenever an attack of “the blues” came upon him, nnd during its duration he would be perfectly and thoroughly miserable and unhappy. lie was in town Friday, seem ingly clothed in his right mind. Saturday morning his wife became alarmed at find ing him with a rope tied about his ueck, but thought no more about it after a little while. But shortly after dinner she dis covered his lifeless body swinging between two outbuildings —he had rushed to meet his maker utisummoned —the victim of a strmu- idea, that lad existence only in his own disordeaed brain. He was about 41 years of age, and leaves a widow and six children, the eldest about 14, to mourn his unhappy loss. The announcement of Judge McManus that he is a candidate for ordinary of Bibb county, after having been defeated in tbe democratic primary, occasioned much comment at Mscon Monday. This com ment was not favorable to Judge McManus, who has been so long regard-d as the old wheelhorse of democracy in Bibb. There were s me who were astonished at the an nounoem -nt, and there were some who said they could not yet he made to believe that the judge would desert Ins party and be conv an inde[iende.nt There were a few, perhaps a <1 no or si, who said they would vote for him, and gave various reasons ami excuses for so and ling S >me said they were never very ardent democrats at any time; some had a personal dislike to Col. Wiley; so i.e sa.d toe party was all to piec-s any i ow, and some were under obligations to Judge McManus. But the dennerats who are 1 .yal to tbe party, and who believe in pirly organization and an observance of party customs, openly express themselves as not only against the i dependent move ment, but said they would roll up their sleevt s on election diy and crush out the last ves igo of independentism. Among those who were loudest in their expression of condemnation of tho bolt were seme of the most ardent supp rters of Judge Mc- Manus at tin- lata primary. Among those wh > voted for him and who will now vote against him are CoL Thomas Hardeman, Capt. J. L. Hardeman, Hon. C. L. Bartlett, Col. DuPont Guerry, W. H. Felton, Col. W, H. VVyly, Sam Weichselbaum, Joe H. Hall and W. G. Smith. The biennial report of tbe principal keeper of the penitentiary Is out, and makes an interesting document. It is pleasant to note that George Washington and Napoleon got out of the penitentiary since tho last report, but Elijah is in for life. There are eleven more convicts in the penitentiary now than there two were years ago,and there are just that many more women. During the two years 775 convicts were received from the jails—just two less than in the preceding two years. Eleven counties, whose population is about 400,000, furnish 578 of the 1,537 convicts. In other words, the eleven principal towns and cities, comprising one fourtu of the popula tion of tbe state, furnish 37 per cent, of the convicts. Those counties are accredited with convicts as follows: Chatham 163, F ilton 128, Muscogeess, Bibb 54, Richmond 32, Mclntosh 25, Bartow 27, Cobb 26, Decatur 23, Dougherty 22 and Sumter 23. The five couutios which include the cities of Savan nah, Atlanta, Columbus, Macon and Au gusta furnish 432 convicts out of 1,537 accordiug to Col. Towers’ estimate, 11 per cent. of the population furnish ing 28 per cent, of the convicts. These figures show conclusively that there is more crime in tbe cities than in the towns and more in the towns than in the country. There are 924 cases o f crime again.t proc erty, and 613 cases of crime against the person. Ti e summary shows that during the two years 578 convicts were discharged, 60 were pardoned, 81 died, 52 escaped, 4 were returned to court for new trial, 2 were discharged by executive order because illegally held, 1 escaped from jail while at tending court as a witness, and 2 were sent to tbe asylum. FLORIDA Sumterville is without a physician. Several crops of tobacco wore sold at Quincy iast week. Considerable cotton was brought into Quincy last week, Apopka’s municipal election will be held on Monday, Jan. 7. Special term circuit court for Sumter county convenes Tuesday Dec. 4. Twelve or fifteen car loads of oranges leave the Panasoffkee depot weekly. Circuit court was in session at Quincy last week and a number of cases w ere disposed of. The acreage in tobacco in Gadsden county will be muen greater next year than it has been this. R. S. Schuyler of Fernandina has been appointed a member of the board of county commissioners. The orange crop is good in Sumter county this season, aud the fruit is first class in quality. William Kelly, recently appointed post master at Fernandina, took charge of the office last Monday. The negro Charles Savage, who was Btruck on the head with a shovel at Fernan dma, is recovering. Carl Vogt & Sons of Quincy have re ceived an order to ship twenty bales of leat tobacco to Bremen, Germany. Work has commenced on some of tho plantations in Gadsden county preparatory to planting next year’s tobacco crop. There wore six vessels in the sound off Fernandina, Saturday, waiting for ttie wind to lull sufficiently to allow tUem to go to sea. Without some enterprising poultry dealer fets in a consignment of turkeys the 'hanksgiving fowl will be missing at Fer nandina. It is said that a number of Feruandinians are now in Brunswick wailing for the quar antine to be raised in order that they may return homo. Tho Florida Tobacco Producing and Trading Company of Gadsden county shipped 150 bales of tobacco to New York last Thursday. At Key West, a dove, while flyiftg at full speed, struck the telephone wire, and broke one of its wings, when it fell to tho ground, aud was picked up by a colored man for bis breakfast. It requires about SIO,OOO weekly to handle the cotto i brought into Lake City now, and if tho tobacco growers realize the price for their tobacco thoy are justly entitled t", it will be but a short while before as much mo ey will bo necessary to m ve this crop of the county as it now does the cotton. AV. C. Allen, one of the oldest landmarks of Columbia county, died a few miles south of Lake City, on VVeduesdiy last, Nov. 14, aged 70. He was born in 1812, came to Florida at 21 anil moved to Columbia county thirty years ago He served through the Hetuinole war, and was one of tho coin niissinn to locate the town of Gainesville.

THE MORNING NEWS: WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 28,1888. A HIGHLY PRIZED RELIC. It Is Only a Brass Button, But It Prob- ( ably Saved a Priso net’s Life. From the Louisville Courier-Journal . “While the rain was falling in torrents yesterday morning a number of gentlemen were comfortably seated in a hotel of this city discussing and fferent subjects when the conversation drifted to mementoes and relics. Several little keepsakes had been exhibited and commented upon, when George Clutch of Columbus, Ind., drew from his pocket a brass button, which upon inspection proved to be from the coat of a federal soldier, “The little curiosity has a history,” said Mr. Clutch. “It is cherished by the person who formerly wore it, as it probably saved his life.” On being pressed to relate the story regarding it,ha said: “During the latter part of the war mv brother-in-law, T. F. Gallagher, who now resides in Ohio, hod the misfortune to be captured bv the confederates and was con fined in Libby prison. After he had been there some time he began to feel the need of money, which would enhance his prospect of getting to the union lines should he man age in some way to make his escape. The fact becoming known to him that a sur geon of his regiment, who wa* also n pris oner, was about to be exchanged, be cut off this button from his coat, and separating the two parts of it made a receptacle inside by t.king out the paper filling. He then wrote the following note:” (At this junc ture Mr. Clutch by a quick movement sep arated the two "parts of the button and a small piece of paper, yellow with age, wad ded up, fell upon the floor.) If we are not exchanged by Dec. 1, send me §3O in greenbacks, put in a phial, canned up in a can of preserves or blackberries. Send it in a box of provisions. T. F. Gallagher. The missive is well preserved, and when placed back in its hiding place, fitted as nicely as if it had b en moulded there. ‘•After fastening the button together se curely again,” continued Mr. Clutch, “it was made to take the place of another on the unifor m of the surgeon, who delivered it to Mrs. Gallag. er m due time. It could not have escaped the scrutiny of the < fficer had it been carried cut of the prison in any other manner, as they searched tbe ex changed prisoners, including the surgeon, minutely. Gallagher did not have much hopes that his scheme would succeed, even should his wife r ceive the note, but in a shorter time than he expected a box was delivere i at the prison for him, and after it had passed a rigid examination, was handed in to him. When opened it wa3 found to contain several cans of preserved fruit, all of which had been opened by the inspecting officer. In one of tbe cans, tho conte its o.‘ which wfes cooked until it was nearly black, was fund a little bottle in which was the coveted SOO. Soon after receiving the money Gallagher made his escape, being one of the planners of the great tunnel de livery. With the aid of the SOO ho reach and the federal lines and was allowed to return home. Without the aid of the money he claims that it would have been impossible for him to have subsisted in the country he was in, and he would have died from starva tion.” While Mr. Clutch was visiting Gallagher a short time ago he was given the letter and button as a memento. VANDERBIIiT’S NINE RESIDENCES. The Last le the Newport Villa for V. h cn He Paid $250,000. Clara Belle's tetter to Philadelphia Pres*. A quarter of a million of dollars has just been paid by William K. Vanderbilt for tho villa and grounds hitherto belonging to A. G. Stout at Newport, and the next neighbor on one side of the place is William Astor, and on the other William Waldorf Ast- r. This trifling bit of architecture anu land is a bir hday gift by Vanderbilt to his handsome wife. He now owrs no less th in nine residences, ranging from hunting w ilds of Scotland to the exquisitely ci viliz and corner of Fifth avenue and Fifty-second stre -t. Each establishment is complete in itself, with fine furniture and all the outfit necessary to luxurious habitation. Ti ere are servitors in charge who keep every t lirg almost ready for the arrival of their master and mistress, who bring with them personal menials sufficient to fill out the complement. Everybody who has been to see the man sions built by tbe late William H. Vander bilt for himself and his two daughters, with their families, knows that the mo - nies occupy the whole Fifth avenue front between Fifty-first and Fifty-second streets, aud most visitors liavo noticed the enor mous stones which form the sidewalk. These blocks of granite reach from curb to area rail, and are proportionately wide. ;he city home of M:s. William Vanderbilt is on the corner just amoss Fifty-second street, and it is more ornamental, with its carved granite, than the larger piles of brown stone. But the2UU feet of sidewalk border ing the two sides of the premises were com posed of flags not remarkably big, although rather bettor than the Fifth avenue aver age. The whimsical young matron did not choose that her sister-in-law neighbors should be better off than sue, even in what they tread on in transit between portal and carriage. Therefore she has ordered her sidewalk torn up and replaced by the big gest flagstones over qnarried. They will he about 29 feet square each aud a foot and a half thick. The difficulty of getting out such tremendous blocks and the cost of transportation will make the price rather more than SI,OOO apiece by the time they are laid. To realize the extravagance, one has only think that the money paid for every one of these stmes would build a pretty house in the country or buy a con siderable farm. Nevert eless, as not less thun 96 per cent, of the outlay is for labor, isn’t it better for many uoor people that this very rich person should want that kind of a sidewalk?
