CLOSING THE WAS.
The Last Charge Was on a Brandy
Barrel and the Last Shot "Was
The man who claims to have
ordered the last shot fired on the
Confederate side during the late
unpleasantness is A. B. Faircloth,
of Camilla, Ga., a gentleman as
modest as he is brave. The in
cident was told us by Capt. D. H.
Sanders, an old comrade-in-arms
of Mr. Faircloth, and forms an
unique feature in the unwritten,
history of the great struggle. Mr.
Faircloth belonged to Company
"C," Second Georgia Cavalry.
This regiment was for some time
associated with Terry's famous
Texas Rangers, whose exploits
are among the most highly prized
traditions of the war. Ihe inti
macy that grew up between these
two commands was very close
and tender, and remained unbrok
en to the end. A Ranger would
succor a Second Georgia Cavalry
man in distress as quick as he
would his own brother. They
fought together, bivouacked to
gether, and together went on
many a wild, adventurous raid.
Lee had surrendered. John
ston had surrendered. Only Kir
by Smith remained at the head of
an armed resistance. The Con
federacy was in its death throes.
Wheeler determined not to sur
render his men, but to force his
way across the country to Join
Smith west of the Mississippi. To
this end he procured the removal
of his command from Johnson's
army, and started upon que of the
most hazardous retreats in the an
nals of the war. While every
where Confederate troops were
grounding their arms, taking the
oath of allegiance to the United
States government, and returning
to their homes, this little band un
der their gallant leader refused to
lower the stars and bars.
Wheeler's bold movement was
kept a profound secret, known
only to his own men and General
Johnston. All thought the war
was over. The Federals came
freely into the lines of their late
foes, and there was a general in
termingling of the "blue and
gray." It fell to the lot of Com
pany "C" to guard Wheeler's
rear. A barrel of brandy was
discovered just inside the reserve
picket line, and these old veter-
ans, with true soldierly instinct,
soon tapped it, and were fast get
ting into a hilariouscondition. The
lieutenant in command of the
picket guards was in a short time
unable to distinguish a confeder
ate from a "Yank," and was re
lieved by Mr. Faircloth, the or
derly sergeant. The aroma of
that brandy was wafted to the
olfactories of the Union soldiers,
and soon a troop of cavalry was
seen coming at a headlong charge
upon that barrel. Sergeant Fair
cloth obeyed the orders of his
chief, and the dashing squadron
was received from their picket
line. They were dumbfounded,
and without returning the fire
showed a white flag. The ser
geant advanced to parley with the
bearer of the flag of truce.
"What the deuce did you fire
for? Don'.t you know the war is
over?" This was jerked out by
the spokesnan on the other side.
"I obeyed orders," camly re
plied the sergeant. "No troops
can pass my line."
"But, man, Johnston has sur
rendered, and the war is over.
Come, let us pass; we want to
taste that brandy over there."
"I must carry out my orders,"
stoutly maintained sergeant Fair
cloth, "and if your men advance
they will be fired upon. But,"
he said, "I am expecting orders
calling in my men every minute,
and if you will wait perhaps you
may get a drop of the brandy."
Strange to say the troop waited
and the order came. Then there
was a grand rush for the barrel
when "Johnny Red" and "Yank"
got on a drunk together.
This was the last shot fired in
the 'late war, and the incident,
now "published for the first time,
will be" read -with interest by
those who participated in the
novel scene, as well as the gen
eral public. To complete the
story it only remains to tell that,
acting under the advice of John
ston, Wheeler gave over his dar
ing attempt, and, turning over his
men to the brigade, regimental
and company commanders to act
as they saw fit, gathered about
him a few bold spirits, and started
to join the head of the confeder
acy in his effort to escape his pur
suers. Greensboro Herald.
To Build the Bailroad.
San Francisco, Aug. 31. The
Central Pacific railroad company
has filed a document in the re
corder's office which mortgages all
the visible property of that com
pany, which has been done, it is
thought, for the purpose ot rais
ing money to complete the Ure
gon road. The property deeded
in trust ffoes to secure the pay
ment of interest and principal of
1G,000 &1,000 bonds, redeemable
fifty 'years from October 1, lbbu,
and drawing G per cent, interest
per annum, payable semi-annuai
lv. The mam fact disclosed is
that 810,000,000 of the bonds
were authorized to be issued in
January, 1S85, to pay the floating
debts, "the bonds to run for
thirty years, and five million were
issued. Another 10,000,000 were
authorized to be placed on the
market, half of which were issued
to redeem outstanding bonds of a
previous issue. Then comes the
present agreement, to issue 16,000
bonds of 81,000 each, to mature in
fifty years hence. Frank S. Dou
ty and W. E. Brown are trustees
for all the property. Provision is
made that the trustees ma' re
serve lands for depot grounds and
from incomes of lands received
and profitable privileges redeem
and cancel outstanding bonds.

New York, Aug. 31. An of
ficial announcement was made by
the president of the United States
Express company that the plant,
franchise and business of the Bal
timore & Ohio express had been
sold to the United States compa
ny for a period of thirty years.
The agreement,was consummated
last week and the transfer will

been begun with president Gar
rett before his departure for

000 was paid in cash and $1,500,

the property was purchased, say
ing that the matter is private. No

The Anarchists Must Hans:.
Chicago, Aug. 31. Informa
tion was received in this city to
day through a reliable source that
the supreme court, when it meets
next Monday? will affirm the sen
tence of the seven anarchists con
demned to death. Justice Magru
der is reported as saying that
there will be no dissenting opin
ions. Chief of police Ebershold
and sheriff Watson have already
received intimation of what is
coming, and they have been mak
ing active preparations to meet
any emergency that may arise.
An official who has watched the
sheriff closely said last night that
Watson had not been to the jail
for a week or more, which is a
most unusual thing. It is no se
cret that he has looked ahead to
the decision of the supreme court
with a kind ot terror. Mo wonder
he feels as lie does, for upon him
will fall the duty of hansrinrr the
seven condemned men.
