His attention has been time and again called to .the matter, but he declines to apply tbe remedy. While .many letters are thus de- layed tbe bulk of the matter ia generally made up of newspapers, and generally the papers from the aouth have a toagh time get- ting from here north. Tbe postal authorities here, on being questioned about the matter, admitted the fact as stated above, and said the only explanation they bad to offer was that Vickery appeared to be more in for economy tbau he was for the prompt transmission of tbe mails. THE NKOKOIUS Over tbe Killing of One of Number a White Alan. CHARLOTTE, N. C., Smith has a new prisoner in charge, ciowd of excited negroes are watcbing the dead body of their neighbor and kinsman in Sharon township. The new prisoner is Thomas K. Samonds, and the dead body is that of Elijah Gilmore. The negroes very much excited, but there ia no danger of anylnrthcr trouble, as any attempt at violence would he immediately suppressed by tho authorities. Samonda killed Gfhiiore, and he does not deny it, but he will, no doubt, have a troublesome time explaining to Judge Meats, of tbe criminal court, why he committed the crime. It appears that Gilmore lived on a farm, which Samonds formerly owned, and tbat he, no longer owning tbe land, bad fiiven tho orders not to cut down any trees to use for lircwood. G ilmore con- sulted his 1-udloid ahont the matter and was given permission to cut tho trees, but Samonds, it appears, felt that orders were being; diiffe- jrartlcd, so he threatened to kill ths negro if he aid not ceiwc to cut the trees, .lust after dinner yesterday Gitmora hitched up his roulea to his uml taking Lock Porter, another negro along with him, drove into tbe woods to cut and haul a load oi wood. They had felled a tree ani were cutting it into firewood when Porter saw Samonda coining towflrds them with a guu in his hand.

Few people un- derstand that Till is not, strictly speak- ing, an allianceman. Ho is tbe head of the farmers' reform movement, which is Distinct from the alliance, and he himself, it ia said, has openly opposed the" subtreas- nry plan. There are three factions in the legislature, as in the state: The alliance- men, the reformers (both of whom nnitod on Till man for and tbe straight- outs, wbo opposed him. THE ALLIANCBMBN DID IT. It was the aJIiancemen wbo astonished tbe legislature today by casting 48 votes for Donaldson, nominee of a caucus held last night. Jrbv's 55 votes were from the reformers. Irby and friends- are reliably reported to feel very bitter against the Donaldson movement, pjad it ia stated tonight, on what seems unquestioned authority, that they will voto for ECamptqn rather than suffer Donaldson to win. IF BAMFTQN'S- JPEIKND? STICK. 'If Hampton-'s friends, stick, and the. con- test is is nob at all unlikely that Irby's friends will go to him, if Don- aldson should gather strength goes along. Donaldson's friends are for Irby second choice, but will abide tbe action, of the alliance caucus, and stick to their man, DONALDSON'S CANVASS. The feeling over the present situation is much enhanced the assertion that Don- aldson made a speech and canvassed in the caucus last night, while all the other candi- dates remained away. Altogether tbe shrewdest political observers declare that if Hampton's friends are not discouraged by the small vote of today, but will bold their own steadily, tbe present senator's chances are better than any of his com peti tors._______ TBK FJURMEKS 1W that after Samonds shot GiUnore, ho rol.Ktd his and thinking tlie load murder, be left rather The wuapon ussd WAS a t ireech-loa.diiig1 tbirtv caliber center fire, and tho bull took i lir.Kf. arrested, here by Con jnnt aa he. lioarded the Stutcflvife HAS LEFT FOR EEIN. 31A ELKS A.

TAittox SPBJSGS, Fla., December The alliance excursion began this morning, leav- ing Ocala at 7 o'clock aud reaching this place at 6 this evening. A long special train of the Florida Southern railroad waa crowded with alliancemen, ladica and newspaper men, numbering in all 283 persons, from thirty-five different states. A. cold snap brought out overcoats, and the far coats of the North Dakota delegates were in strik- ing contrast with tbe tropical vegetation. The trip was a continual ovation to tbe larmers. They wero met with bands of music and speakers at stations along the route, and at Brooksville. a cozy town among the orange groves in the up'and ham- mocks, a proceadion of" public school cbildtur, headed by the cornet band, met the excursionist-- -at tbe depot and escorted tbem to the courthouio square, where a barbecue with tropical fruit awaited tbem.

Depredations. December special from Rapid IHty, S. D., says: A band of Indians from Little Wound's camp camped about ten miles east of Cheyenne river, between the mouths of French and Battle creeks. They have been raiding the deserted ranches, killing and running off stock, burning bay and grain and stealing household goods. Yesterday twenty well armed men left Uapid City for the Indian camp. They vdll be joined by a number of ranchmen, and if they are not in ercepted by troops will attack the Indians. A special irom Cutter says tbat not far from Buffalo dap, T. M. Warren, a ranchman, with four of his men, attacked a raiding party of Indians and killed four. This story has not been verified. The Old. Jeff Davis Mansion.

A large crowd of Irishmen, residents of the city, had assembled at the rail way station, and on tlie appearance of their leader cheered wildly. Parnell entered a carriage, and from a window addressed bis countrymen. He said; "I am overjoyed to see that you have honored mo in suchlaxge numbers.

O'Sbea is the son of a Limerick attorney, who left him a large lortuue, which he squandered m. horse racing and gambling. He was an officer in a crack cavalry regiment, a dashing, lady-killing fellow with a good figure and attractive manners. He married Kitty Wood when she was in her teens, but the pleasures of the and the race course had more attractiveness for him than home. When he lost his money lie left the army and lived on his wife's, spending it freely on wine, women and horses. He olten remained months away from home and utterly neglected his wile. Getting into parliament for County Clare through the innence of the Cathohc bishops, he foisted himself on Parnell through his wife's entreaties and proceeded toearn a good government berth by making himself useful. He closed bis eyes to what everybody knew, and finally only acted from mercenary motive-i. He is tbe most thoroughly despised cad in London today.
