The New Albany (Ind.) Ledger has
learned of the murder of Mr. D Ed.
Smith, who fhr more than a year was
an officer in Hospital No 9, in New
Albany, and was a young man of more
than ordinary moral rectitude at d up
Tightness. He had been residing in
Ohio since the war. Some few weeks
ago he left his home to visit some rel
atives in Pennsylvania, and during his
stay among them was requested by his
sister to call upon a young lady friend
i of hers. as he returned home, who re
sided at Gallion. Ohio. The you rig
lady in quest ion had. a few weeks pre
vious to Smith's arrival, refused to re
ceive the calls of a voung man in that
town who was deeply in love with and
i anxious to marry her. This v oung
man took an oath that he would kiil
any man who might visit the lady.
Young Smith arrived in the town,
and had called upon the young lady,
in pursuance of his sister's request, du
ring the afternoon, and left an engage
ment to call again in the evening. By
some means the discarded lover learn
ed that Smiih would call, and armed
' himself with a revolver, and taking a
| position a square or two from the
1 young lady's residence, waited for
Smith to leave the house. Smith re
! mained until about 9 o'clock, and then
1 left. W hen he reached the place where
! the discarded lover was standing, the
i desperado suddenly rushed upon him.
and shot him through the heart, kil
| ling him instantly.
The murderer gave no one any in
timation of his intention to commit the
deed, and young Smith was entirely
unsuspecting of danger until the fatal
shot was fired. The villain was ar
rested. and will doubtless suffer the ex
treme penalty of the law for his crime.
Young Smith, during his residence in
New Albany, was a member of the
choir at Wesley Chapel; he was high*
ly esteemed by all who knew him, and
had an unblemished character.
A CLERK'S MISTAKE. —An exchange
relates the following funny mistake ot
a clerk in a dry-goods store: 'ln a
certain store, not over a thousand miles
from here, the clerk, after returning
from supper, commenced puttingthings
in their places for the night, when he
came to what he thought was the
' show image,' a frame dressed in wo
man's clothes, and having very much
the appearance of a feminine in the
back, took her very gently around her
waist, calling her his old woman, with
a few other remarks not commonly
made by 'young men' in the presence
of ladies, when, to his astonishment,
the supposed piece of wire-work turn
ed round and slapped his face for the
gross insult be had perpetrated. The
clerk, innocent as he was. could do
nothing more than apologize for his

The inhabitants of the city present
a strange combination of incongruous
elements. Creoles, Americans, Ger
mans, Irish, Spanish and Mexican trash,
with a goodly sprinkling of bona fide
Johnnie Crapeaus, are to be found and
a snore reckless, pleasure loving, pleas
ure seeking community does not exist
any where outside < f Paris itself They
are particularly notable for neatnes*
of ornaments, for every other person
you meet wears a diamond pin-or ring.
Even the darkies afford Brazilian peb
bles, and sport gold watches and Mal
acca canes. To a northerner, how
ever. the quadroons and octoroons, who
abound plentifully, are the strangest
part of the whole compound, suggest
ing very forcibly the idea of practical
amalgamation which would shock the
sensibilities of theoretical Obi rlinists.
The prettiest forms in the city are
those of the quad' and the 'octo' g iris,
and generally they are the most ta-te
fuliy dressed. A neatly turned ankle,
pretty hand and tapered waist, with a
naturally airy and jaunty carriage,
are almost a sure indication of nearly
extinct African blood. Color is noeri
terion. and a stranger will often mis
take an olive complexion creole for a
mulatto, if not something darker.
It will be news to many of our read
ers to learn that these quadroons and
octoroons arc semi-legitimate—i c.,
they arc generally the offspring of a
place marriage, which is an institution
so peculiarly local that but few, except
the residents of this locality, know of
its existence or understand its obliga
tions. Among the pure Creoles, the
strictest Catholics imaginable, a ous
torn resembling a mock marriage lias
obtained A regularly ordained priest
officiates, and a white man is placed
with a colored girl in such a manner
that, although they violate law. decen
cy and good morals*hy living together,
they satisfy the demands of the Church
arid confessional. The American quad
roons, however, not being so strict
Catholics, and in some cases having no
religion at all, accept an offer to be
kept as a mistress from ariv reliable
white gentleman with ceremony
Previous to the war the place obliga
tion was more frequently incurred than
since its close, and it is the universal
evidence of those who should know
that it was seldom, if ever, violated
on the part of the temales. They live
as chaste and virtuous to their -so
called' husbands as they would have
done if they had been white and law
fully married. It was customary lor
planters who raised children by their
' u 'gg el ' queens' to free them, with their
mother, and send them to this city to
be educated: and in many instances
the girls wr e sent to Northern schools
and even to Prance. On leaving school
and reaching maturity they meet their
inevitable fate of illicit semi-marriage.
Young men 'courted' them after the
usual manner, ' popped the question,'
and were referred to mamma, who
generally decided the application with
a view to money, demanding that a
certain number of slaves be given to
her; and. in short, a regular establish
ment be set up tor her These young
women, many of whom, as I have al
ready stated, bear no evidence of their
African blood, except a magnificent
physique, are thus pledged to a life
from which their cultivated minds
sometimes revolt with honest indigna
tion and horror. Having every sensi
bility that a refined and cultivated wo
man naturally possesses, they are
doomed to a hateful existence, as dis
reputable and illegal as Morrnonism
itself. The existence of a bona fide
wbite wife did not always interfere
with the desire of a man to assume
the place of obligation. Il it is not the
refinement of licentious amalgamation,
lam mistaken. A race of bastards is
the i esult.
