Piinlalunent with Him 'Played out" Northern Loyal Men, he Reasserts, "Feel Their Inferiority" to Southern Traitors and Rebels. We have a full report, Riven by Democratic authority, of Jed. Davis' speech at Augusta, Ga., on Thursday night last, in defense of the Lost Cause and in defiance of loyal sentiment in the North and the South. To those in the North, if any there be, who believe that the old re bellious spirit in the South is crushed, and who urge that for that reason bygones should be bygones, and the Southern leaders ali be pardoned and readmitted to all the rights and privileges they forfeited by their treason, this speech is submitted as worthy of more than passing consideration, with the reminder that it was delivered in the presence of many of the most influential "Democratic" citizens of Geor gia, and by them loudly applauded. This is the speech: I My Friends and Fellow-cltiBens;of Georgia: I feel that I have a peculiar claim upon trie people of Georgia, and that tbe people of this State hare, also, a peculiar claim upon me. My father was a citizen of Georgia many long years ago, and to him have 1 often listened in the days of my boyhood as he told to me traditions of tie great Revolution. It was In this city of Augusta this aucient old town upon the banks of the .Savannah that ray father, then but a mere boy, came to Join the Revolutionary forces, and enlisted beneath the American flag. I am proud of my father, and proud of his State. If it Is a crime to feel proud of this sire to glory In his devotion to tne cause of the right to remember with exultation nis services in ueience or liberty, then, my friends, Is It also a crime to oppose a despotic centralization of power and uphold the right of a State to withdraw from a voluntary compact en tered Into only for the preservation f the freedom cfthem all. If this is a crime, then am I a criminal, and It Is the only offense of which 1 have been guilty. I repeat, Georgians, that 2 claim to be of Georgia descent, aud i glory In my lineage. Although the distinguished gentleman who welcomed me to your city, with words so kindly and so eloquent, has said that you fay a tnbate to me by your presence here to-night, cannot think that he was correct in this remark. It la not a tribute to me Individually, but because you feel that I am one of yourselves that you come to do me honor. And while I am fully aware of this fact, do not. Imagine that I feel at all mortified at it, or ttiat my vanity 1b wounded becaase you honor me only as the representative of your cause. That cause is dear to me more precious even than life (applause) and I glory in its remembrance. Just here let me say to you that I well know how every utterance of mine is seized upon by the or gans and members of a certain faction. lam well aware of the eagerness with which every word of mine is caught up, and the ingenuity with which it la distorted and used in furtherance of designs apon my people, and hence I dare not speak to ysu as I desire. My heart Is full to overflowing, God knows, but 1 cannot speak. Many memories of the past are Ptruggllng in my brain, but I must be silent. Though I must not speak, it Is no tear for myself which commands my Hps to be closed. No; I have been punished for my crimes, and have experienced the worst which could be Imposed. In the cant language of the day, punishment with me is "played out." The worst that can be done has been done, and I have no more to fear. It I speak it is not myself, but you who would be Injured, for, unfortu nately, additional wrongs can yet be heaped upon vou. Therefore, if I claim merit for anything, it will be for keeping silent. My simplest words may . work you harm. If I say "Good night, my friends, go to your homes," and a Congres sional Investigating committee happened to be within hearing, its members would swear that I directed you to go off and join the Kuklux. (Laughter and applause.) Filled with that jealousy which springs from the knowl edge of their Inferiority, and the justice of your pre- tensions, and conscious of broken covenants and a violated constitution, they mistrust every move ment, and tremble with fear when they think that right may again prevail. (Applause.) But wrong cannot always be triumphant. I will say nothing and von must do nothing, even though tyranny oppresses grievously upon you. Forbear- for a season, and a day will come when al will yet be well, I may not, nor may some of you live to see it, but It is snrelr coming. (Applause.) lie who reigns above and lives always will see that justice is done. He will not allow the wicked to always remain in power, nor the righteous to be oppressed. We can wait until that day comes, and, In the meantime, be quiet, Tls an old and wise saying that a good biting dog never barks much. If we wait patiently, a senxe of justice will yet return to the people of the United States, or an opportunity will come when our rights can be gained, and not only our rights tbe rights of the South but the rights of all the people; the rights which were fought for and obtained at the point of the sword la tbe first revolution (Applause.) But though I cannot and should not speak, I fear that where the mind and the heart are both so full I will not be able to restrain my words. I cannot think one thing and say another, and unless the honest emo tions oi my soul can oe expressed l do not care to speak. I thank you, gentlemen, for your kindness, and feel deeply touched at Its exhibition. Mar U-Jd foster and preserve you. If ever the day comes when I can speak freely I will be among you and say to you all that is In my heart. Till then fare- wen, ana may the great Goa be with jou always, (Applause.) SINGULAR SUICIDE. . A School Girl Takes Her Life Because She had Committed a Trivial Uirenae. ' The Chicago Post of Saturday evening says: The following announcement appeared in yesterday morning's papers, In the place as signed for death notices: "At the residence of William McLala Lizzie, R. w estcott, aged 16 years and 9 months." On Thuredav night this young girl retired to rest in perfect health. In the morning she was dead. Coroner Stephens proceeded to the bouse yesterday afternoon and held an inquest. From tbe evidence submitted it become apparent that tne poor gin bad deliberately committed tui clde, and the jury found accordingly. The sad story, as developed before the Inquest, showed that the girl was of a highly sensitive organiza tion, and had taken her own life because of the remorse which had followed the commission of comparatively trivial offense. On Wednesday afternoon, she listened to the Invitation of a young man to take a boat ride with him on the basin. 10 account to th teacher tor her an sence, her friend wrote a note, sign ing Mrs. McLalns name, and saying that Lizzie had been detained at home. The deception she had practised so preyed upon her that she confessed her fault to W aunt. Mrs. McLain mildly reproved her. The fault and the reproof sank deeply into her mind, and she de clared to the friend who was her companion on the boat ride that she would commit suicide He laughed at her threat, thlnklug it nothing more than idle talk; but the girl was in earnest. Upon retiring for the night, and after taking a more than usually affectionate leave of her aunt, she took a dose of morphine. The drug quickly performed Its deadly mission. The corpse of the girl was found in her bed 'in the mcrtlng. STILL ANQTIIEB "DEAD LOCK." I Grand Row In sv Democratic Newspaper lmr-e. The Suntury American of the 27th inst, says: The non-appearance of the Northumberland County Democrat last week cansed considerable speculation until the real cause was made known. It appears that the editors of that sheet never nad much love or regard for each other, and consequently when certain subjects were dis cussed, and particularly as to tbe ring party, during the past year, there was anything but harmony or good feeling between the parties. From what we can learn the senior editor has repeatedly been annoyed and in sulted by the conduct of his partner, who is a firm disciple of the ring, until patience became exhausted and ceased to be a virtue. Week he fore last the senior editor, Mr. Elchholtz, being out of town, the junior, Mr. Day, saw proper to indulge his penchant and talent for slander and vituperation, by the publication of a com munication asasiling J. J. Reimensnyder, a re spectable gentleman, and Democratic -candidate for Associate Judge, which the senior, on his re turn, did not approve. In last week's Issue, the senior, as a matter of justice, wrote an apology to be inserted in the Democrat, refuting the charge in the communication referred to. On Friday morning.when tbe paper was about being put to press, Mr. Day objected to its going into the paper, and as Mr.Eichholtz was in the act of placing the article in type in tbe form, Mr. Day knocked it out of his hands, scattering the type on the floor. Mr. Eichhsltz then Bald that the paper could not be issued unless the article was inserted. Mr. Day declared that he would not allow it to go in. Thus matters came to a dead lock and all work in the ollice ceased. The friends of both parties came forward, but no reconciliation could be effected. On Monday morning Mr. Eichholtz made another attempt to issue the paper, when Day came up again and knocked from his hands the article referred to, scattering the type on the floor. A regular fisticuff then ensued, which resulted in Mr. Day coming out second best, and having his eyes placed in mourning. This collision came rather sooner than was anticipated, and will no doubt result In a disso lution of partnership, which will, if Mr. Day is ejected from that ollice, leave the ring without an organ in the county. DESPERATE AFFRAY. Bloody Shooting Affair In Mississippi One of the Parties Shot Three Times. The Memphis Avalanche of Saturday last says: A shooting affray occurred Thursday evening at Harrison, a small station on the Mississippi and Tennessee Railroad, in Tallahatchie county, Mississippi, between a young gentleman named Fred. Craig and a man named Coggeshall, rep resentative elect from that county to the Legis lature. Abut 5 o'clock in the evening Mr. Craig walked up to where Coggeshall was standing in front of one of the stores and asked for an ex- Elanatlon concerning some language which he ad used. Coggeshall was standing at this time with both hands in his pockets, and when young craig asKea mm tor an explanation he pro ceeded to give It by pulling a couple of Derrin ger pistols, cocked, ana one in each hand. which he pointed directly at Craig's head, who was standing witnm a leet oi mm. That would have been explanation enough for most men. But Craig, instead of saying that was all he wanted, struck Coggeshall a violent blow in the face, turning him about half way around. Wheeling back, Coggeshall pulled the trigger of bis right-hand pistol, but which, fortunately for young Craig, did not exn piode tne cap, and by tne time ha could nse his elt-hand pistol, Craig bad drawn his revolver. and both men fired at the Bame time, Cogge shall s boll passing over Craig s head, while tne loiter snot mm in tne lett breast, the Dan glancing around the bone and producing serious liesh wound. As soon as he was snot. Coggeshall started to run, and had got off about thirty paces distant when Craig again fired, this time etriKiug mm in the can ot ms lett leg. Turning, Coggeshall fired his remaining shot from the pistol which would not go the first time, and missing Craig, who was standing still, he again started off in a run.. lie got away about fifty yards before Craig fired his third aud last snot, wmcii strucR mm in tne lower portion of his back. This shot brought him to the ground, seeing which Craig put up his revolver and walked off. Yesterday morning, although all three of tbe bullets were still lodged in his body, Coggeshall was reported to be resting easily and with a lair chance oi recovery, llie difficulty was strictly a personal one. HYDROPHOBIA. Man Dies from the Bite of a Dog Re ceived Four Years Previously. A correspondent of the Scrantoa liepublican writes: The streets of Ashley were thrown into a fever of excitement yesterday by the report that a man had died from hydrophobia, and, alas t the report proved too true. The case is both remarkable and horrible. About four years ago John Bennett was Ditten in tne nana Dy a mad dog. Tbe wound was small and soon healed. He has been in good health and was of sound mind, and no unnatural mad actions were noticeable until a few days ago, when the men at work witn hitn in the mines noticed a wild expression about his face and a peculiarity in his manners at times he would stare at them with a fero cious look, similar to that of a mad dog, but as these symptoms of mania were ot but a mo ment's duration, it was not mentioned. On Wednesday he was taken sick and confined to his bed. After being confined to his bed he could not bear the sight of water, and In a short time it was evident that he was suffering with hydrophobia. The day passed and the suffering Increased; the suffering had become so intense that he foamed at the mouth, and last night he expired. A tew minutes before he died he said he was suffering greatly by a pain in his breast, showing that he was sensible to tbe last. It is said by those who saw him die that It was the most heart-rending scene they ever witnessed. SMALL-rOX.

At Hunter's Point it has broken out with renewed fatality. An hospital has .been established at Dutch Kills, adjacent 'to two railroads, and . to , this . fact is attributed its general prevalence. Dr. Wood, Health- Officer of Jamaica, informed. a Telegram reporter that he knew of cases of small-pox that physicians were treating as measles, and deaths bad occurred from that cause. At Far Kockaway this was the case, and the people did not hesitate to pay tne usual tribute to the de ceased, kissing them and attending their fune rals at midday. A family from .Jamaica went to Kockaway to a funeral. When they returned tbe mother took sick. Her physician prescribed for the measles, and she soon died, ihe netgu bors all attended the funeral, me child was next taken sick. Dr. Wood was called in and found it to be ill with black small-pox. An ex aminatlon of tbe father revealed the fact that Lis person was covered with it, but in an undeveloped statre. The neighbors became horrl' 'fled at this revelation and buried their clothing In the woodd. At Stony tfrook, all the children oi one fauilv were taken with small-pox.

Wilmington, N.C A MARYLAND MYSTERY. Discovery of a Cave Containing Human itemains in uecii county. The Pilot Town correspondent of the Cecil Whig tells the following strange story: "John S. Love and NaDoleon Lee discovered last winter, while working on the railroad, some thing that appeared to be a cave, with the mouth or entrance filled with stone. They took some tools to-day (23d instant) and took away the stones and found a cave fifteen or twenty feet long, under a rock, and in it the bones of a man of ordinary size. The skull and under jaw were perfect, but the teeth had fallen ont. There were two Indian darts about five inches long, and a sea-shell about the size of a tea cup. interspersed with red spots ana large pieces ot mica. The inside of the cave had the appear ance of being burned. The cave is on R. Alex ander's farm, between the Bald Friar and tbe Head of the Old Maryland Canal. I think from tbe appearance of the darts that he bad been killed by them, and put in there and wood piled on him, and the wood set on fire, and the en trance filled with stone. The relics are at George Brown's, at the Head." OBITUARY. M. Jecker. ' ' ' Among the victims of the Paris Communists was M. Jecker, well known as a banker, and prominent at one time in the finances of Mexico, lie was born In Switzerland during the early part of the present century: but went to Paris when quite a young man and engaged in financial pursuits. He first became known during the administration of Almonte in Mexico. Almonte employed him to negotiate a loan, which he did at so low a rate that be was publicly charged with swindling tbe Mexican Government. On presenting his claim it was at once rejected, and although M. Jecker perslstentlyrressed it, none of the several governments would recognize its validity. On the establishment of tbe empire, however, Maximilian agreed to pay the claim, and Jecker was employed to negotiate another loan. Whether he ever got the monev is proble matical; trot as bo was a man of prnrat wealth the loss, if he did lose anything, did not affect his fortunes. FINANCES AND COMMERCE.

F. Herald. "A telegram from Washington states that the Se cretary of the Treasury has not as yet accepted, aad probably will not accept, the recent offer of New York bankers to take fi.M,anooooof the new loan, the conditions attached to the offer being deemed Incom patible with the public Interests. The subscriptions to the new loan reported to day amount to $200,000. The money market was a shade more active, and a large number of loans were made at four per cent., particularly among the stock houses. The business of the day must be quoted as done at three to four per cent, on miscellaneens securities and at three percent, on governments. There Is a Bteady Inquiry for first-class paper, and strictly prime grades are current at live per cent, discount, with 4(t7 per cent, as the range of quotations for all tbat comes within tbe designation' of .'prime.' Foreign exchange was dull and rather more steady on the basis of 110 for prime bankers' sixty-day ;sterllng tnnd U10VAI10 for Jslght bills. The announcement of the proirramme of Trjnir operations for the month of June was quietly re ceived considering the Important deviation in It from those of the current and preceding months. We think the policy of selling a larger amount of gold in proportion to bond purchases a step In the right direction, particularly at this season. Mr. Boutwell will doubtless see the correctness of the theory that the success of the new loan depends more npon the obliteration of the gold premium than npon the ab normal process of advancing Government bonds by forced purchases of them In the open market. The programme as announced In detail from the Sub Treasury is as follows: BIDS FOR GOLD, Thursday, June 1 9,ooo,ooo " " iSA 1,000,000 " 8,000.000 1,000,000 " " llooolooo Total 17,000,000 sWi-.CS OKKKR8 OF .BONOS. it Sx..--1 Wednesday, June 7..... '. $1,000,000 it 1,000,000 " " i 1,000,000 " " 28 llooOOOO o Total $4,000,000 "The gold market wss unsettled on a light amount of business, the speculative sentiment being at fanlt as to the effect of the Treasury programme for June. By a very Inverse process of reasoning it waa at first argued that the smaller purchases of bonds would occasion a decline in them abroad and bring come of them home. On this Idea gold opened at 111, but declined to 111, reacting finally to 111. Aa may be Inferred, the bulk of the business was at 111. The higher price since Saturday Is also at tributable to an apprehension or more active money In London, now that the civil war In France seems coming to an end."
