KATE SOUTHKKX.-Tins Columbus.
Ga., Enquirer says: Wo give ?u i Si is
paper the evidence elicited in tins
much-talked ol' trial of Kale South
ern.- It di fte rs ns much as light and
darkness lin u tho sensational tic
counts we have been reading in cer
tain correspondence. There is no
thing in tlx.' scenes, the sui rou tidings
nor tin? incidents, to gleam a tithe of
romance. Thu whole was a light bu
tween two women, while gallant
Bob Southern and the rest looked on.
They were all very ignorant people,
Kati.1 and her sistior both centred on
"?is" l/owart. There is no evidence
that the men present tried to part
the combatants, nor does lhere ap
pear to have been such a seem.* as
tin; sentimental' writeis picture ol'
Hob, with pistol in hand, forcing
Kate's way through a crowd, All
that was lin; imagination ol' a laney
iU-etc?iiM*-.; ??he ia o?' lu ed ill.'.i he ig ill',
about twenty yeats of age, and has
dark brown bair, and the twang i? a
North Georgia cracker She is very
ignorant, can hardly read anti write,
and Bob ts worse educated than she.
Kate is passably good looking, ami j
wears imitation jet. She says thc
witnesses swore lies against lier;
that she acted in self-defence; that
she cannot dance, and that liighl ot
hr,' lather's wan the "fust time iii.ii j
she ever stied a reel t un " She is
now on tuc plantation ot Col. Suntu,
in Washington County, and will lu-j
employed in thu household, conking I
and washing for the convicts who j
work on the plantation. Th.- six
month ."baby" is sick-teething
and that now requites un.st <>t her
time She says Ho money has been J
sent her from the North, ilei In-altli '
is bad lier sixteen year old sister. ?
sentenced to two years as au acc?s I
gory to Kate's crime, has been in ?
Col Smith's house as a servant. Sh/.* |
is handsome, and has been taught J? j
read ami write by her kind nn<io'/-' :
On her Ja thor/s i'nrtu-sim -4?*y?4t~J-4?
plough. tier sentence lias provedia
blessing. Bob Southern is nothing
but a strong, good-looking animal -i
a common, ignorant bom.. Ile is
now a guard to convicts un (be same
plantation. The woman Kate killed
is on a par with ihc rest. On read
ingtbe evidence, one feels utterly dis
gusted with the amount ot sentimen
tal twaddle that has been expended
on thc case. Not a scintilla eau be .
obtained to cxeile a ningle OX pr L'S
sion of udmi'.'atioii. Why, the'par ;
tics surrendered themselves to get j
the reward, anti the understanding
was that Kate'i mother was to got .
$50 ?d' the money. Where even a
tortile fancy would extract anything !
of a romance from au atrocious crime, j
we cannot imagine . We do net be !
Move there is a single woman, no
matter bow warm ami sympathetic ?
her own heart may be, who, after j
rending' this sworn testimony, willi
: sign ti petition fur Kati; .Southern's
I purdon. Governor(Julquitt did right.
' Ii?' weighed the evidence carefully,
ami displayed both justice and hu
manity in his decision. A crime
! has hern committed, u woman killed
I another in lier lather's house, alter
! shu had been received kindly hy her
parents- and then lo demand of the
authorities that she shnMI go free is
preposterous, ll such an act won:
pardoned, the doing so would bea
mockery of law. Uriuie already lias
too much licence because thu stat
utes atc not eufurcod.
ton Star s ivs: Tin- attention ot' sci
entists has recently been attracted to
thc neighborhood of Mr A Ii Black,
the sheri (1 of this county, upon Mid
dle Sound, sonn: ten limits east, of
this city, hy the discovery there of
large quantities of human remains of
au unknown race and period, scatter
ed ?il intervals along lim ocean front

of gentlemen attended Mr. Black, at
bis request, upon tin* opening ot two
mounds which lie bad discovcrcd-uud
which be conjectured contained some
memorials ol !hc aboriginal inhabi
tants. Nothing unusual was found
in tin* first mound, but lin- examina
tioti of the second resulted in a very
interesting discovery. bigging a
ci icu ar well in thu cunt re of the
mound, at a depth ol six or'Keven
loot.' there was found a circular de
posit of charred coils, mingled with
fragments ..I human bones, which
hud evidently lain then: undisturbed
fur a long period of lime, and in theil
original deposit. The gentlemen
employed verified portions belonginp
to lin; hollian cranium, vorlehne, th?
