SATURDAY, MAY 7, 1870.
Several buildlngi were strnck
by lightning during the storm of
Thursday night, among them the
City Iloipilal. No serious Injury
was done that we can learn.
It In respectfully (?) suggested
that if the capital is unnufo nt Jack
sun, that an appropriate place for
legislative uso would be the peni
tentiary. Certainly that building
U strong enough.
.1- .-.
We havo received No. 1 of the
Sliubuta Times, a neat weekly pa
per, published by Morris k Mc
Cormick. It will atrivo to bo in
dependent In politics. We wish it
success, but that thing "cau't be
did."
It it reported that Senator Ames
was found lu a bouse of ill-fume at
Washington by the Scrgcaut-at-Armsof
the U. S. Senate, who was
in teach of members to make quo
rum. Wbilo we can hardly believe
the report, yet we would say to
Geo. Ames
"Let all thy Amet be thy coun
try'." Do you "stag?"
Our readers will remember tho
accouut published recently iu the
IIibali) of an attempt at robbery
and a shooting affair at the planta
tion of Mrs. Drooks, in this coun
ty, on the 29th ult. Tho man shot,
who gavo his linme as Uilcy, was
brought to this city and placed in
custody. Yesterday eveniug ho
died ol'bia wound, and confessed
that his name was Owcu Moran.
It also appears that ha hits before
been in custody iu our juil for
grand lurceny, and it Is believed
uUu that he was an escaped con
Vict, having been sentenced to tho
Penitentiary from Natchez. His
sad end is the jutl and iuevitabe ro
sults of crime.
Tug correspondent 'uruesl,' who
was so busily writing for the Jack
son Pilot a short time since, has
recently been employed again to
"puff" curtain Radical members of
the State Legislaturo,ln tho Spring
field, Mass., Republican. He makes
wind bags out of Franklin, Tease,
and Clarke.
Wb called at the residence of our
old friend, T. J. Randolph, on
Grove street, to examine the beau
ties of his flower garden. The first
thing which he showed was the
truly beautiful Dragon Arum.
The flower measures twenty-seven
inches iu diameter, of a deep ma
roon color; and our old friend
Fletcher, a gentleman of truth,
after examining It closely, says it
smells nearly at sweet as a dead
horse. Tho second thing was the
Red Maguolia. The bloom Is larger
than tho common magnolia bloom,
Is a dark red color and truly beau
tiful, and said to be much swoetcr
than Magnolia Fiueatta. The next
to attract our attontlon, was the
lino dwarf fruit trees, the pear,
oberry, end apricot, all In full bear
ing. Last, though not least, was
the Burning Bush, the bush from
which Moses came to meet onr
Saviour.
To conclude, we recommend
ttiobc who cau to exnmiuo the beau
tics of thin garden for thamselvee.

The facts are these: Anewaffl

Gen. J. C. Webber wss called to
the chair, tapt. H. N. Martin was
elected 8ec'y. D. McCaleb, Esq.,
offered the following preamble and
resolution which were adopted:
Whibbas, It is with great plea
sure that we, the citizens of Vlcks
burg, have witnessed the presence
of a committee of the Legislator in
our midst, the object we have un
derstood is for the inspection of the
advantages and disadvantages in
regard to establishing a river ter
minus of the V. A M. Railroad ; end
whereas, we look forward to the
huppieat results from the visit paid
us by onr diagui.hed guests: there
fore, be it
Resolved, That the hospitalities
of the city be extended to nl! mem
bers of the Legislature now in our
city, and that a special commit
tee of Ave be appointed to see
that suittiblc arrangements be
made to render their.stay pleasant
unci agreeable
Tho following gentlemen were
appointed on the committee to act
iu conjunction with thoi.c preri-on.-ly
appointed: McCaleh, Hums,

Dr. Emanuel made an explana
tion regarding tlio object of a recent

ters connected with the roal.
Mr. Morris, a civil engineer, and
one of the mamigers, spoke on be
half of the Railroad Company ; said
the road could not uso a grade over
100 feet to the mile; spoke of the
routo from the two mile bridge
direct to Glass bayou, wi'lmfiOO
foot tunnel, and at a cost of $300,
000 besides land damage?. These
faci were elicited by questions
of Judge Harris; and when nskeri
if a grade not over 100 feel were
presented to a point within the city
limits, would he, Mr. Morris, ac
cept and advieo the comjiny to
accept it, and his reply was, be
thought lie would. Tin; mime ques

he objected to answering.
The following re-tolu'.Ion was
adopted :
Resolved, That this meeting re
quest that the Legislative Commit
tee remain here to-morrow, the 7th

f'OMMLNICATKU.
Editob of Herald : I found on
my desk tliis morning a polite note
from Mr. J. W. Miort, City Clerk,
inclosing a blank form of iuvita
tlon from committees representing
the City Council, citizens of Vicks
burg, and "the Republican Club of
Warren county, asking participa
tion iu the hospitalities of the city,
and in tht celebration of the 15fA
amendment on the 13th lust., in
common with the members of the
Legislature, whose visit here at
that time will be made, as I under
stand, In response to au Invitation
extended to tliem some time ago
by the citizeusof Vlckshurg.
Among those of the committee
signing on behalf of the citizens of
Vickiburg, my name appears by
what authority I am not able to
state, as I had no intimation of it
until the reception of Mr. Short's
note end inclosure.
While 1 fully concur in the spirit
that prompted the Invitation to the
members of the Legislative branch
of the State government and will
heartily co-operate with the citi
zens of our city In extending Its
hospitalities to that body at such
season as they may accord us the
honor of a visit, aud In doing so
shall feel that I am slmplv testify
ing a due respect for one of the co
ordinate brunches of the immedi
ate government under which we
live, let, wheu, as 1 conceive is
the case iu this Instance, such au
occasion, originally designed and
set apart for a manifestation of
courteous hospitality by trie cit'.
zous of Vicksburg towards the
Leiin-laiive body ot their State, is
to be perverted to the celo
bration of au event iu which
neither t'ncy nor can 1 find any- I
thing to disapprove. 1 desire i
In their wny to dbavow r.U cennte- i
tiou with' n and to suy ti.at my
name appears to the invitation re
ferred to without any authority
batcver from me. 1 am satisfied
that Ihero is neither occasion tor,
nor propriety iu such a celebration.
f or the frecdmen or Mississippi
there Is nothing in the loth
Amendment calling for such a
manifestation on their part,
for it secures no right that was not
fully guaranteed to them by moans
wrought out long before that
amendment became a part of the
Constitution of the United States.
For the white citizens of the State
there .is nothing in It calling for
socb a manifestation on their part,
because in its matter and manner
of adoption, it is regarded by nine
tenths of them as subversive of our
entire system of national govern
ment. In my humble Judgment the
proposed celobration will contrib
ute nothing towards allaying the
asperity of feeling already too long
existing between the two races in
this State, and as it can only be re-
?;srded by thoughtful men as oalcu
ated to wldea the breach between
them, those who desire to promote
the real welfare of the State can

As the authority for the follow
ing story is a clergyman of this
city, no lean noted for hit eloquence
as u theologicnl moralist than for
his manifold literary attainments, it
may be accepted na something
wholly without alloy of either ex
aggerated fact or t-ensational fic
tion. Some yeara ago a minister
of the gospel, who sometimes tin
dertook the arduous duties of a
toluntcercity mi.ionary, discov
ered, in the family of a poor lalmr
er. in oui of the most mixo-ablc
tenomt-r.t houc of New York,
two viniUit'iil Kisti-rs. whoso ap
pc:iriiiicc rind natural abilities were
iipparently, much above their
squalid lot in lite. I!y bis ac'-nry
they were placed in :i scI'om, their
home re:.ueietl more ( om'brtuMc,
:n:d :bcir desire torn future of bet
ter h irroiiiiiliim- rande prat-liral to
them. All vu-i.t eil until the
period i if m lioolieg was over "lien
the eMer B'nl raetv itltel-e.-tii: of
t!i'-two, in an iiour of blind, fjiii
isii !o'!y. I'ccrimt'- the wife of
; oiiij;: -.nan u'leiitly lu-r inferior in
t;itcli:.'ei:ecand general worth. To
lier the 6toiy now belongs, ami the
lom.'ince of her life began with the
rand net by which she threw (ewnv
every opportunity to ripen her ex
istence into a bettor 'caiity. Love-'
first fitful fever beini; over, she
became aware of her tireat mis
take, ami after n brief, iiihamm
iiious experience of matrimony,
withdrew from her ininiuatched
husbttn-l and disappeared from the
city. Her family and their good
friend, the clergyman, were in
jjrcatiUstiest tbcrent. fearing that
the unhappy voting wife bad been
driven to some desperate resource,
but, at the em) of some weeks,
there came to the minister a letter
from the missing one. After con
fiding to him the story of her iu
tolerable matrimonial sorrows, and
declaring that she had renounced
her nniit huslinml forever, the
writer confessed that she hud
lsiid become an actress in a theatre
of .Memphis, Tennessee, under an
assumed name. Iu this new en
pucity she was ai:iiug much suc
cess, and begged her old friend to
keep her sec ret. and net as her
agent in a friendly watch over the
linsbn. d she eoui'l no lunucr live
with. She promised to send
money, from time to time, which
the clergyman was to apply, as
from biiiiM-lf. to such aid as the
husbai-.il n i'.'lit ul'Soluti.'ly require;
but beuU'.l that no ell'ort should
be mndc to persuade her back to
the life never to be hers nnlii.
Convinced that all such pet-suasion
must be uscli-ss. the recipient of
the extraordinary letter sadly
yielded to the inevitable, unJ
wrote to the actress that be would
act as she desired. Consequently,
while the detached wife led the life
of a player in Tennessee, she was
stil! nlile to keep an ee, through
her friend, upon her husband in
New Yotk, and see that he did
not fall into abject want
One tlfi), a few weeks ago,
a letter from the clergyman
told her that the man whom she
bud vowed to love, honor and
obey, was lying sick of relapsing
fever in n wretched garret to
which he had retreated. On the
day after the arrival of this news,
she abruptly closed her engage
ment nt the Southern theatre, and
disappeared from Memphis. Two
days thereafter, a nice, benignant
old lady appeared In the New York
tenement house in which lay the
fever patient, distributing tracts
and inquiring for sick persons to
visit. The people of the lower
floor told ber about the dying
man in the garret, mid, with bas
ket on her arm, she went up to see
him. There he was. tossing and
delirious in a bnrn'ug fever, with
naught to smooth his pathway to
theuraveor cool its scorching air.
She filled bis room with comforts,
employ ed a physician ami a nurse,
nnd made daily visits to the
place tlieri-afu-r. JCo one knew
who su. iva.s. i. or v. lu-iv ehe ciiiuc
from: b i thi .oi gli men of the
rookery misrd tiieir shabby bats
to be:- w!ic.n she passed. Nothing
eotiiit nave the tdek man ; he grew
worse, aud ill his delirium often
called for his wife. Just before
dentil the old ledy disappeared
irm the bedside, and in her place
sat a 3'"t:ng woman richly dress
ed. Tie Mitfercr was too Cur gone
to recognize her. but she was his
wife; in the disptuise of the old
woman she bad relieved his last
wants, and in the end she (rare
him Christian, burial. The last
act of her married life being fin
ished, the dramatized woman re
vealed herself to her sister and
their frieud the clergyman, but
only to say good-bye before re
turning to the South. Her last
words as site stinted for Memphis
were : " I hope I shall not die in a
theater, as poor President Lincoln
did." It was a presentiment. On
the very night of her reappearance
as an actress she fell violently ill
