I'rcdn the K-asLv-illc Bjtuier, Oct. Ktli.
Two of the most diabolical out
rages ever perpetrate! in a civiliz
ed community occurred last week
near Shelbeyville. The victims
were two of the most respectable
white ladies of J led ford county,
and the guilty parties two notori
ous negro desperadoes named Sam
uel (iilliland and Henry Williams.
."Miss Susan Patterson had gone
a short distance from her dwelling,
scarcely out of sight of it in fact,
when she met Henry Williams,
who addressed her in language, of
the most insulting nature. Before
she could utter a cry for aid, the
villain seized her by the throat and
threw her to the ground. She now
shrieked for help at the top of her
Voice. In the meantime her watch
log, which had followed her,
pounced upon Williams, and in his
'efforts to bite him tore a piece of
cloth from the right leg of his pan
taloons. The vavisher not being
able to manage both, as his intend
ed victim resisted with all the des
peration of despair; while the dog
was harrassing him with fierce and
desperate attacks, he jumped up
and attempted to make his escape,
without having accomplished his
brutal purpose. At this instant
Miss Patterson's brother came up
on the scene, immediately gave
chase, and ran him into Sheibev
yille. .where he was captured on
Saturday, while hiding under the
house ot John 1). Fuller.
Williams was committed to jail,
and was not only identified by Miss
Patterson, but the piece of cloth
which the faithful dog had torn
from his pantaloons was found to 1
'match it exactly.
A day or two after this attempt
ed outrage, Samuel Gilliland went
to the house of .Mrs. Rogers and
;nsked Iter if any one was at home
beside herself. Frightened at his
menacing manner, she replied that
she thought there were others
around the house, whereupon he
told her that she lied; that he had
been watching around the house
for some time, ami that not a soul
was there beside herself. He fur
ther informed her that he had driv
en the hearse in which her husband
liad been conveyed to the grave,
aifd that he had'his eye upon her
ever since. Suspecting now what
was his foul intention, Mrs. Kogers
commenced to scream, when the
tiend clutched her by the throat,
threw her to the floor, pulled out a
dirk and gave her to understand
that if she made any noise it would
e her death. Notwithstanding
this murderous threat, she resisted
him with all her unequal strength,
and, in her struggles, scratched him
on the nose with her finger-nails.
After having satisfied his brutal
iosires, (iilliland went to the door
to see whether any one was ap
proaching, returned and, with his
dirk ready to murder his victim if
he made "further resistance, again
outraged her person and rushed out
of the house. Her brother, John
Johnson, a constable, happening to
come up at the time, chased the
negro down and brought him back.
Mrs. Kogers immediately recogniz
ed him b"y his peculiarly repulsive
face, by the scratch upon his nose,
and by the shoes which he wore,
they having belonged to her deceased-husband.
GiUihind was committed to jail
at Shelbeyville, and was, with Wil
liams, taken out last Saturday to
the district where the outrages had
been perpetrated, for examination
befuro Joseph M. Ogsley, a Justice
of the Peace. The magistrate not
being at home, the prisoners were
detained there by E. W. Kainey,
the Deputy Sherit,in whose charge
they were, until dark, when the of
ficer started back with them to
Xot long after dark, and about
three miles and a half from Shel
beyville, on the Tullahoma .road,
they were met by about live him'
dred men, none of whom, it is im
portant to state here, were in dis
guise. The prisoners were seized
by the indignant citizens and huno
to the limb of a treee. Upon their
bodies were placed placards warn
ing no one to remove them until
the next evening unless by legal
authority, on pain ot sharing The
same fate. The Deputy Shenff, F.
F. Fonvillc, to take a guard along
and not allow the prisoners to be
harmed or taken away from him,
protested against the course of the'
law being interfered with, but he
and his guard had to yield to su
perior numbers. The night was so
dark and the execution so summary
that not one of the avengers was
recognized, though, as before stat
ed, none of them were disguised.
It is said that one of the negroes
nad been connected with some cir
cus, and was exceedingly supple
and active. When his execution
ers had hung him up, he turned a
complete summersault, catching
hold of the rope above with his
feet. Some of the citizens, how
ever, pulled his feet down and fin
ished him by attaching to them
several large stones. He never
kicked again.
The coroner of the countv had
the bodies cut down on Sunday
eveuing. An inquest was held, but
no evidence was elicited as to the
identity of the persons by whom
such a swift vengeance had been
visited upon the ravishers.
Henry Williams was arraigned
before the jury of the Circuit Court
of 1 Jed ford county sometime ago,
instance of several other negroes,
on the charge of being aKu-KIux,
and although some very positive i
evidence was produced against him
the testimony was so conflicting
that the trial resulted in his acquit
tal. (iilliland was for some time driv
er of the Shelbeyville omnibus, but
resided, at the time of the perpe
tration of the crime above detailed,
about seven miles from that town.
It is said that on the very day he
outraged Mrs. Kogers, he had gone
to the house of another ladv with
the same intent, but that she was
fortunate enough to escape his
clutches. This lady having told of
his conduct to some of the neigh
bors, one of them kept a watch
over her house for fear he would
return again..
Uoth "Williams and Gilliland
were a terror to the whites and
blocks of Bedford, and all rejoice
at having been rid of their presence.
A bill is now before the Legisla
ture making rape a capital o flense.
We hope that it or some similar
measure will be speedily passed in
to a law. The crime is one which
has been committed with fearful
frequency of late, and no offense
against the law of God and man
more richly merits the heaviest pen
alt jr that can be inflicted. Pretexts
for interfering with the due process
of law can be no longer offered
when the seventy of the law is
made equal to the enormity of the
How is this fou High? How
is this for a scene in church ? The
place is a sacred edifice in Bath,
Maine. The pew is crowded. The
sermon is long. A respectable
citizen goes to sleep. In close
proximity to him is a lady. The
preacher was in the midst of the
closing prayer, when the slumberer
astonished the congregation by
grunting in a tone of complaint:
"Come, come, Sarah! lay along;
don't crowd so ! lay over ! lay
over !" "Sarah," who was fortun
ately in the pew also, never for a
moment lost her presence of mind,
but administered a timely poke
with her parasol, which awakened
her dormant lord, and prevented
any further remarks on his part.
A warning to sleep auditors
or long-winded preachers no mat
ter which.
Love Best of All Blessings.
A woman may b surrounded by
all the luxuries that money can
buy, and have the fawning friend
ship of people whose smiles only
live in prosperity ; but if she feels
herself unloved and alone to her
heart, the crown jewel in the dia
dem of happiness is lost, things
lose their value, and life becomes
insufferably monotonous. The hon
est, tender love of two brave hearts
who have started out, and are
struggling to get a home for their
little ones, and money enough to
feed, clothe and educate them, make
life a thousand times more attrac
tive and inspiring.

Fading,-trembling"; fluttering leaves
In rustling clouds go by.
Bruisod and te-rn by the pitiless winds,
And left on the ground to die.
Alike the gorgeous robe that hung
Upon the kingly oak.
And the delicate hill of the daisy
Have sunk beneath the stroke.
No longer laughs the moeking bird
Within the dreamy dell,
"When through the Summer days
He played the mimic well ;
To warmer climes ami brighter skies
The jocund warbler ft w,
Before the envious frost betrayed
The fairest buds that rew.
Low-whistling quails still haunt the field
Where late the waving grain
Upreared its myriad golden spears,
The glory of the plain.
The dotard year row idly twines '
A crown ot yellow leaves,
And laughs to see the shadows dance
Among the sober sheaves.
Before the blaze the farmer basks,
From harvest toil set lree,
And in the wood t lie squirrel peeps
From out the hollow tree.
While one complains of scandy yield.
With all his barns aglut,
The other in his sunless lodge
Contented cracks a nut.
Along the roofless woodland aisles
The robin's note resounds.
And elfish shapes go in and out
Among the leafy mounds.
But palsied beach and naked elm
Will stand in silent woe
Till scowling clouds grow pitiful
And cover them with snow.
Ye! every change that nature brings
With deeper good is fraught,
Though oft her motive lies beyond
The crrasp of human thought.
When Winter rears bis icy throne,
And lips the trees with snow.
In lands beyond the burning zone
The fairest roses blow.
Greeley's Game-
From the New York .Standard, Nov. 6.
The readers of the Standard
know that we have always insisted
upon regarding the Hon. Schuyler
Colfax as a candidate for the Pres
idency. Mr. Colfax has denied this,
saying that under no circumstances
would he remain in public life at
the end of his present term, to
which we have replied that the
Presidency is an ollice neither to be
sought nor declined, and that when
a grateful people tender him or any
body else the office of Chief Magis
trate he will accept it.
We are confident that Mr. Gree
ley, for instance, has a programme
for the canvass of the Presidency,
which will open after our coming
election, involving the nomination
of Mr. Colfax, lie intends to de
feat General Grant, if he possTfdy
can, very much as lie defeated Mr.
Seward in 1800, to nurse into life
as many candidates as possiblc.and
to fall back upon Mr. Colfax as the
popular and available man. A
more pertinent ill list rat ion, per haps,
would be that afforded by the no
mination of Mr. Polk in IS 11 and
Gen. Pierce in 1S52. It will be re
membered that Mr. Polk was
thrown into the convention, after
the enemies of Van Buren had
worried his friends and threatened
to defeat the party by withdrawing
from the convention and support
ing Cass. In 1852 the friends of
Van Buren and Mr. Buchanan re
taliated upon Gen. Cass and no
minated Gen. Pierce, assisted as
they were in New York by Mr.
Dickinson and Gov. Marcy. The
policy of the opponents of Gener
al Grant is to defeat 1dm in detail.
They intend to build up the opin
ion that Gen. Grant is not the
strongest man in the Republican
party, and if this opinion can gain
ground (and there are many able
men in the country who are stead
ily fanning it into life), the defeat
of Gen. Grant will be possible and
the nomination of Colfax almost
Whether Mr. Colfax is aware of
this combination or not we cannot
sav : but it is certain that he does
not mean to be forgotten by the
country. For a statesman yearn
ing for private life he gives the
world his views and suggestions
about platforms with singular per
tinacity. Pumpkins for Inflammatory
Rheumatism. At a recent meet
ing of the Xew York Farmers'
Club, a correspondent wrote of the
virtues of the pumpkin, giving the
following instance of its value for
inflammatory rheumatism : A wo
man's arm was swelled to an enor
mous size and painfully inflamed.
A poultice was made of stewed
pumpkins which was renewed
every fifteen minute:, and in a
short time produced a perfect cure.
The fever drawn out by the poul
tices made them extremely offen
sive, as thov vrn taken off. I
knew a man cured of severe infiam- i
rnation of the bowels by the same
kind of application.

'Analysis of a Little Man.
The following is an extract from
the very elaborate, powerful and
remarkable speech of Senator Da
vis, of Kentucky, delivered at
Louisville a few weeks ago :
I would desire to give a true an
alysis of President Grant, "naught
to extenuate nor to set down aught
in malice." Endowed by nature
slenderly educated because of in
disposition and incapacity to learn;
a very small amount of reading,
and a- shallow understanding of
what he did read, and consequent-
iv no general knowledge or inform
ation ; a stranger
to every
magnanimous or
callous, selfish.
kind sentiment;
and malicious :
brave, because of the absence of
intellect and sensibility ; his per
sistence was obstinacy, lor he had
no power of inductive reasoning to
free himself from a false position
or conclusion. He pledged his
word and his honor to President
Johnson when he accepted the po
sition of Secretary nl interim, as
he admitted in the presence of the
Cabinet; and having violated the
pledge, to escape the consequent
shame and dishonor, he publicly
and falselydenied having made it.
While holding a military posi
tion subordinate to President John
son as Commander-in-Chief, he en
tered into
the foul conspiracy
to have him removed by impeach
ment, and used his influence with
the Court to procure its judgment
of conviction. He is the only Pres
ident of the United States who lias
ever accepted the scandal of allow
ing himself to be subsidized, and
he has given the oitlces and trusts
of the people to his subsidizers and
their friends nfnt'(( pro quo. He
was a pauper when he entered the
public service during the war, and
his wealth no amounts to hundreds
of thousands. The means by which
he has accumulated it has prepared
the public to believe the charge
made against him of belonging to
a ring for gigantic plunder, con
nected with the acquisition of I)o
minico, to be true. He has appoint
ed more of his kindred and con
nections to oflice than all his pre
decessors together, with a general
unfitness of his appointees.
from Washington City, and has
given far less attention to the du
ties of his oflice, than any former
President, this resulting in part
from his greater ignorance of them.
During the vacations of Congress,
he is rollicking about at the water
ing places, large cities, and other
points, in quest of fast men and
fast horses, boon companions and
sensual life, and there is no prudent
man, well acquainted with him,

who would confide to him any im

no proper comprehension of the
great principles of our Govern
ment; no appreciation of its true
dignity and value ; no knowledge
of or taste for the details of its ad
ministration ; no fitness for his of
fice, or interest in it, except for the
adulation and subsidies and revelry
and opportunities to enrich him
self, his relations, and flatterers
which it brings to him.
How to Quarrel. The way to
quarrel with your wife is to wait
until shs is at her toilet prepara
tory to going out. She will be
sure to ask you if her bonnet is
straight. Kemark that the lives of
nine-tenths of the women are pas
sed in thinking whether their bon
nets are straight, and wind up
with the remark that you never
knew but one woman who had
common sense about her. Wife
will ask who that was. You will,
with a sigh, reply: "Ah! never
mind." Wife will ask you why
you did not marry her. You say,
abstractedly, "Ah, why indeed!"
The climax is reached by this time,
and a regular row is sure to follow.
Ax Exact Match. Two friends
met, not long since, after a separa
tion of thirty-five years.
"Well, Tom," says one, "how
has the world gone with you, old
hoy? Married yet?"
"Yes, and I've a family you can't
7 mi
match ; seven boys and one girl."
"I can match it exactly," was
the reply, "for I have seven girls
and one boy."
Their Oath. The women of
Chicago have founded a new gov
ernment, of which this is the oath:
"We, of planet earth' solemnly
promise to honor and obey the
new Government the Theocratic
and Democratic Government
man the State woman the Church

Practical HiutV-
Chhr IVitioitt A !. To
cold water one gallon, put dark
brown sugar one pound ; tartaric
aeid, one-half ounce ; yeast, three
table-spoonfuls, and keep these
proportions for any amount desir
ed to make ; shake it well together.
Make it in the evening and it will
be fit for use the next day. If it
is desired to bottle this artificial
cider by manufacturers of small
drinks, you will proceed as follows:
Put into a barrel, hot water, five
gallons; brown sugar, thirty
pounds; tartaric acid, threc-fourtl s
of a pound; cold water, twenty
five gallons ; hop or brewers' yeast,
three pints; work the yeast into a
paste with flour, three-fourths of
a pound ; shake or stir all well to
gether; fill the barrel full and let it
work twenty-four or forty-eight
hours, or until the yeast is done
working out at the bung, by hav
ing put in a little sweetened water
occasionally to keep the barrel full.
When it has worked clear, bot
tle it, putting in two or three
broken raisins to each bottle, and
it will nearly equal champagne.

Wheels. Molasses, one quart;
yeast, one pint ; warm rainwater,
three gallons. Put all into a jug
or keg, and tie a piece of gauze
over the bung to keep out the illo-s
and let in air. In hot weather set
it in the sun ; in cold weather set it
in by the stove or in the chimney
corner, and in three weeks you
will have good vinegar.
JhrriH i)i(l Scalds. A poultice
of tealeaves applied to small burns
and scalds, affords immediate
relief. The leaves are softened
with hot water, and, while quite
warm, applied upon cotton over
the entire burned surface. This
application discolors and appar
ently tans the parts, and removes
the acute sensibility and tender
ness. Ganjla for Sore 27irO(ds. Very
strong sage tea, one-half pint ;
strained honey, common salt, and
strong vinegar, of each, two table
spoonfuls; cayenne, the pulverized,
one rounding tea-spoonful; steep
ing the cayenne with the sage,
strain, mix, and bottle for use,
g:irdin'- from four to a dozen
times daily, according to the
severity of the case.
Health and Success-
It is no exaggeration to say that
health is a large ingredient in what
the world calls talent. A man
without it may be a giant in intel
lect ; but his deeds will be the
deeds of a dwarf. On the con
trary, let him have a quick circula
tion, a good digestion, the bulk,
thews, and sinews of a man, and
the alacrity, the unthinking con
fidence inspired by these, and
though having but a thimbleful of
brains, he will either blunder upon
success Or set failure at defiance.
It is true, especially in this coun
try, that the number of contours
in every community of men in
whom heroic intellects are allied
with bodily constitutions as tough
as hoises is small; that in gener
al, a man has reason to think him
self well off in the lottery of life
if he draws the prize of a healthy
stomach with a mind, or prize a
healthy stomach without a mind,
or the prize of a fine intellect with
a crazy stomach. But of the two,
a weak mind in a herculean frame
is better than a giant mind in a
crazy constitution. A pound of
energy with an ounce of talent
will achieve greater results than a
pound of talent with an ounce of
energy. The first requisite to sue
cess in life is to be a good animal.
In any of the learned professions a
vigorous constitution is equal to
at least fifty per cent more brains.
"Wit, judgment, imagination, elo
quence, all the qualities of the
mind, attain thereby a force and
splendor to which they could never
attain without it. But intellect in
a weakly body is "like gold in a
spent swimmer's pocket." A me
chanic may have tools of the sharp
est edge, and highest polish ; but
what are these without a vigorous
arm and hand ? Of what use is it
that your mind has become a vast
granary of knowledge, if you have
not strength to turn the hav.
An attorney named Else, rather
diminutive in his stature, and not
particularly respectable in his char
acter, once met Jekyll. "Sir," said
he, "I hear that you have called me
a pettifogging scoundrel. Have
vou, sir?" Jekvll, with a look
of contempt, replied : "Sir, I never
said that you were a pettifogger or
a scoundrel, but I said vou were
liitle JZIse."
The rising generation in Iowa is
hopefully bright. At one of the
Sunday Schools in an Iowa town,
ihe superintendent reviewing the
lesson asked the question, "Why
are we commanded to 'gird our
loins?'" One sharp little shaver
sung out,"to keep our brccchco up."
'Here and There "
We find the following remarks
in'the Stockton JupiibUeun, of the
7th ult., than which nothing can
be more true, and no subject should
enlist the attention of Americans
more readily than the matters
brought to their notice. That
Americans are paving the way to
the establishment of a monarchy
to take the place of our Kepubli

indifference there is no denying',

I From tte Greensboro Herald.
The American people no longer
live under a Kepublican form of
government, but a military des
potism. This is no sensation or
idle assertion, but astern undenia
ble fact. That it does not startle
the public mind beyond measure,
is because an unprincipled and
"selfish partisanship blinds the peo
ple to a true condition of things.
There is not a State in the Union,
so-called, but is in federal bonds.
The citizens of all the States, by
the monstrous usurpations of pow
er, arc virtually slaves for, upon
the mere whim or caprice of the
President, they may at any mo
ment be deprived of the privilege
of the writ of habeas corpus, a
trial by their peers, and court-martialed.
These statements are verified
and illustrated by events that are
constantly transpiring all over the
country, and especially at the
South. Martial law in Texas ;
martial law in Louisiana ; martial
law in South Carolina; martial
law in Georgia. If necessary to
secure Kadical success, Xew York
and other Xorthern States will
have a taste of military rule in
due time. At present tne weak

are the principal sufferers. Jv.it

pretexts a considerable portion of
South Carolina was by Executive
proclamation, a few days ago, put
under martial law, and many of
her best citizens placed under
arrest. The consequence is that
hundreds are fleeing to other
States, and poor Carolina is likely
to be given up to the moles and
blacks. And yet the American
people are singing hosannahs to
the men who have destroyed the

For the Srong-Minded,
At a recent meeting of tho
Evangelical Lutheran SynodeiH
Philadelphia, the following pream
ble and resolutions were aei opted :
Whereas, The cry for woman's
rights has been renewed by a feftr
strong-mimlcd women of frosty
sympathies and unnatural ambi
tions and aspirations ;ind whereas,
these aspirants lor political suffrage
do not understand tluat equality
and diversity "do by no means ndc
essarily exclude one another, or
how woman can equal man with
out becoming man, or how the
sexes can stand on the same level
without standing in each others'
shoes ; and whereas, we believe
that the appeal to Congress for
political equality, which has been
demanded, ami which will be re
newed at the next Congress, if
successful, would be prejudicial to
the true and dignified influence oP
woman, as well as subversive of
the divine economy of the house
hold ; and whereas, tiiis claim5 to
political suffrage is prejudicial to
the great majority of the sober and
thoughtful of that sex, who con
cious of the true dignity of wo
man, choose that separats path in
which from Eden she has walked
side by side with man ; therefore.
Kcsolvcd,That, in the opinion of
this Synod, the present movement
for female suffrage is a reform
against nature aiul the Bible, and
counteractive of the Divine econo

Kesolvcd, That we recognize
primordial and beautiful law of
heaven which assigns to woman ft o
different sphere from man ; that
law of duality winch runs through
the Divine economy; the duality
of day and night, of leaf and flow
ers, of the hand and of the heart.
Resolved, That in the name of
the great majority ot women who
repudiate this woman's rights
movement, and who do not wish
nor ask for political suffrage, we
express out protest against thexx

sick, neither was there any indica
tion of disease to the last, and she
died literally of olel age, her life
