Gen'l William T. Martin, dis
tinguished jurist, statesman, pa
triot, and gallant soldier of the
"Lost Cause," died, at bis home
in Natchez, on the morning of the
17th inst., in the eighty-eighth
year of his age. He was a great
friend of the late Col. D. S. Pat
tison who encouraged and assisted
him in every way in his power to
promote the building of the rail
road between Natchez and Jack
son. Col. Pattison inspired friends,
all the way from here to Jackson,
notably the late Col. William Sive
ly, former owner of Oakley, with
zeal in the enterprise. He gave
right of way for nearly two miles
through the Bannockburn Planta
tion. Also three hundred square
feet for building section houses
and foundry shops, half a square
for storing lumber, a site for depot
and park. And in addition to this
he had one hundred and fourteen
acres surveyed into lots, giving the
railroad a one-half interest in every
lot sold, hoping thus to interest
the railroad company in building
and improving a town, which, at
Col. Pattison's suggestion, was
named for Gen'l Martin, the pro
moter and president of the road.
The name of the town of Morton,
just above Jackson, is so similar
to Martin that it has always caused
great confusion, delay and incon
venience about freight, mail, and
express matter going to the wrong
point. For this reason there has
been an effort made several times
to change the name of this place to
"Pattison", Gen'l Martin himself,
in a letter to the writer, advocating
the change that must in the course
of time be effected. But the good
that Gen'l Martin has done in
opening the ways of civilization to
a sequestered territory will exist
forever, and become a noble mon
ument 10 his memory.

The folly of permitting the labor

Monday morning about six o'clock,
after a long and painful illness.
Mr. Wiiliams was a native of Al
abama, coming to Port Gibson
from that state in 1848. His tem
perate habits gave him a long lease
life, be having celebrated his
89th birthday two days before his
death. The deceased had been
identified with the town so long
that his death removes from it one
of its landmarks. Mr. Williams
served his country during the try
ing times ot the civil war.
Though confined to his home
several years by physical infirmi
ties, he never forgot the friends of
his earlier life, and greatly enjoyed
talking with them.
Mr Williams outlived man's al
lotted time, and his own family
had become reconciled to the part

wife and three daughters, whose
faithfulness could not be excelled,

contracted a stubborn cold," be writes,
that developed a cough, that stuck to me

weight ran down to 130 pounds. Then I
began to use Dr. King's New Discovery,
