Horrible Murder---A Heroin Little
The Vicksburg _Herald, of the 24th,
relates the following particulars of a
most horrid crime, perpetrated in that
vicinity. A short time since, about
10 o'clock at night, two negroes went
to the residence of Mr. Garrity, who is
superintendent of Dick Christman's
plantations, about sixty miles above
that city, on the Mississippi side of the
river, and knocking at the door de
manded adniitance. Mi. Garrity at
once opened the door, when they de
manded his money and pistols. He
replied he had neither, but had scarce
ly-spoken when he was fired upon by
both the ruffians, the shots striking him
in the back of the neck and completely
paralyzing him. Passing over what
they supposed to be the dead body,
they entered the house. murdered Mrs.
Garrity and two children, and shot
through the shoulder of a little girl.
She fell, though enduring intense pain,
she feigned death so well that the in
human monsters really thought her
dead, and proceeded with their work
of plunder without noticing her fur
ther. After plundering the house of
everything valuable they could carry
off, they set fire to it and went away.
The little girl, thus wounded and alone
in the burning building, got up, and
going to her father who was dying
near the door, with desperate courage
and strength, she managed to drag him
outside of the house into the yard.—
The rain, which was falling, revived
him, and with the assistance of his little
daughter, he managed to crawl into an
out-house. The little girl then return
ed to the house attempted to get her
mother from the burning building.—
She failed to accomplish her object,
though her severely burned sides leaves
evidence of her heroic devotion with
which she struggled to rescue the dead
body of her beloved mother from the
Returning to her father, she made a
little fire and sat watching by his side.
He conversed with her until daylight,
when, to use her own expression, he
stopped talking and she thought he was
dead. When daylight came, the poor
child, wounded as she was by the as•
sassin's bullet and by the flames, made
her way to the house of a neighbor,
some two miles distant, and related the
This gentleman got others of his
neighbors and proceeded to the scene
of murder and arson. Mrs. Garrity's
body was not entirely consumed, and
was taken from the ruins and buried
with those of her husband. The bodies
of the children had been entirely con
From the little girl's description of
the nurderers, the officers of a gunboat
near the place, were of the opinion that
they were two deserters from that ves
A gentleman from the neighborhood
of Hancock county, Kentucky, has just
given us the following account of a most
singular guerrilla outrage. The notori
ous guerrilla Coulter, who is reported
to have been killed in Nelson county,
Kentucky, about two weeks ago, is the
hero of our story.
Coulter entered the village of Hawes
ville, and going to the Clerk's office
com pelled the Deputy Clerk of the
County Court to issue a marriage li
cense, authorizing any minister of the
gospel legally qualified to unite him
(Coulter) in the bonds of matrimony with
Mrs. F., the beautiful young wife of a
discharged Union soldier. (Her Husband
being in Louisville, afraid to return to
the guerrilla infested neighborhood in
which his dwelling is located) The
clerk in his own justification, entered on
his book, "compelled by force of arms
to issue this license."
Havihg obtained the license, Coulter
next sought a clergymah, who with
threats of death, he compelled to go
with him to the house and perform the
ceremony. Having lived with the doub
ly married woman three or four days,
the desperado gave her five hundred
dollars in gold and set off again in search
of adventures. Whether the lady was
constrained by force, by gold, or by ro
mantic affection, to submit to the dou
ble marriage, our informant has not
learned. It may be added; as favorable
to the best construction which can be
placed on the conduct of the bride, that
when last seen in the neighborhood, she
was on board of a steamer which was
bound for Louisviile. —Jeffersonville Na

11ENDQRARTER4, MIDDLE DivistoN,
COLCIIBIA VA., March 10, 1864.
Dent. Gem Grant: GEN'L. : —ln my
last dated Waynesboro, I gave you a
brief account of the dfeat c't Early by
Custer's Division. The same night
this Division was pushed across the
Blue„pidge and entered Charlottesville
at 2 p. m. the nest day.
The Mayor and principal inhabitants
came and delivered up the keys of the
public buildings. I had to remain at
Charlottesville two days. The time was
consumed in bringing over from Way
nesboro our ammunition and pontoon
trains. The weather was horrible—rain
incessant. The two divisions were, du
ring this time, occupied in destroying
the two large iron bridges, one over the
Rivanna river, the other over Morses
Creek near Charlottesville, and the rail
road for an advance of eight miles in
the direction of Lynchburg.
On the 6th of March I sent the first
Division, Gen Devin commanding, to
Scottsville, on the James river, with
directions to send out light parties
through the country, and destroy all the
merchandize, mills, f.ictories and bridges
in Ravenna. The parties were then to
join the division at Scottsville. The
Division then proceded along the canal
to Doughenclsville, fifteen miles from
Linchburg, destroying every lock, and
in many places the bank of the canal.
At Dagendsville we hoped to secure
the bridges to cross the river, as our
pontoons were useless, on account of
the high water In this we were foil
ed, as both this bridge and the bridge
at Hardwicksville, were burned by the
enemy upon our approach. Merritt ac
companied this division. The 3rd Di
vision started at the same time from
Charlottesville, and proceeded down the
Lynchburg road to Amherst Court
House destroying every bridge on the
road, and in many places miles of the
road. The bridges on this road are nu
merous, and some of them 500 feet in
We found a great abundance in this
country for men and animals. In fact
the canal had been the great feeder of
Richmond. At the Rockfish river the
bank of the canal was cut, acd at New
Canton, where there is a dam across the
James river, the gnardlock was destroy
ed, and the river let into the canal, car
rying away and washing out its bottom.
The dam across the James, at this point
was also partially destroyed.
I have had no opposition. Everybo
dy is bewildered by our movements.—
I have had no news since I left.
The latest Richmond papers were of
the 4th, but contained nothing.
I omitted to mention that the bridges
on tl - e railroad from Swoop's depot, on
the other side of Stanton to Charlottes
ville, were utterly destroyed; also, all
the bridges for a distance of ten miles
on the elordansvle railroad.
The weather has been very bad in
deed. It has been raining hard evry
day with the exception of tout, since we
started. My wagons have, from the
condition of tne roads detained me.—
Up to the present time we have cap
tured fourteen pieces of artillery, eleven
at Wayesboro atd three at Charlottes
ville. The party th at I sent back from
Waynesboro started with six pieces, but
they were obliged to destroy two of
them for want of anirnale. The remain
ing eight pieces were thoroughly des
We have also captured twelve canal
boats laden with supplies, ammunition,
rations and medical stores.
I cannot speak in two high terms of
Generals Merritt, Custer and Devin,
and the officers and men of their com
mands. They have waded through
mud and water during this continuous
rain, and are still in fine spirits and
Commodore Hollins of the rebel navy
was shot near Gordensville, while at- 1
tempting to make his escape from our
advance in that direction.

teenth year, a bona fide offer from a well

The Suez Canal.
M. Ferdinand de Lesseps gives public
notice that his projected Ship Canal, uniting
the Red sea with the Mediterranean, was so
far completed in 1864 that a baily boat has
been run from Port Said to Suez since the
Ist cf last month—a large bark, towed by a
steamer, and conveying from twenty to
thirty passengers, having passed from sea to
sea within twenty-four hours. As yet the
depth of water would seem to be but four or
five feet with a width of thirty to forty feet;
but it is confidently calculated that the canal
will be prepared for effective transportation
by April, when six steam tags are to be
ready for service upon it.
This canal is ninety miles long, and is to
have, when completed, a minimum depth of
twenty feet, with a width of three hundred
and thirty feet at the surface. It was com
menced in 1859 by a private company, on a
subscribed capital of $40,000,000. We in
fer that M. de Lesseps does not expect to
complete it immediately, but to deepen it
by degrees, without interfering with its use.
A British Railroad, two handled and twen
ty-two miles long, passing from Alexandria
through Cairo to Suez, has for some years
afforded expeditions transit between the two
The Suez canal has been favored by the
French Government, but has, for so:ne not
very obvious reason, encountered the jealous
hostility of England. It would naturally be
presumed that the European nation, whose
possessions and whose commerce in the far
east must exceed those of her rivals, would
welcome and support every enterprise
whereby India, China, and ;span are ren
dered more cheaply and rapidly accessible.
A passage for ships to India by the Is
math of Suez sounds the knell of Britian
supremacy in the East and the Mediterrane
an. British Malta and British Gibraltar
must ere long become worse than anachron
isms. Trieste, which has alrealy grown
during the last quarter of a century like
Chicago or Cincinnati, must speedily become
the great modern enterport of the extreme
eastern trade, Venice, Ancona, Athens,
Marseilles, Barcelona. must speedily enter
into the Mediterranean competition for the
control of the commerce which has hereto
fore been ruled from Ladenhall street and
the London Exchange. English diplomacy
and the English press have done their best
to prevent, or, at least, to delay this CODSU
mation. The spectres of the India revolt of
'57 forever, apparently in her eyes, England
has seen in the piercing of the Isthmus only
an insidious assault upon her domain in the
Orient. The civilized world, however, cares
but little what may become of England's do
main in the Orient, and will even look with
complacency upon the overthrow of the fi
nancial domination of London.

Gigantic Oil Enterprise.
The Pittsburgh Chronicle says : A
gigantic enterprise is now on foot at
Titusville, and one which will settle
many questions now in dispute in regard
to the oil theory. A company of re
liable capitalists has been organized for
the sinking of a shaft at some point not
yet_determined upon, for the full and
complete development of the geological
peculiarities and facts of the oil stratifi
cation. The capacity of the proposed
shaft is to be seven by fifteen feet and
it is supposed the drippings of the rock,
as the shaft progresses, will nearly, if
not quite fully, compensate for the labor
of this great undertaking. This under
taking will involve a greater degree of
mining skill than any now practiced, as
appliances will have to be made use of
to keep the work tree of petroleum gas,
which do not come within the range of
the ordinary class of ventilators ; and
these npnliances will have to be so com
plete and effectual in their operation,
that no ordinary skill can invent them.
Of course, after the shaft has reached a
proper depth, to fully carry out the plan,
it will be necessary to run leads and
drifts at angles from the main stem,
which will eventually create courses of
successions of caverns, which will be
come receptacles of oil, to be raised to
the surface either by means of pumps or
by hydraulic pressure.
A Mathematioa Puzzle.
The following is decidedly the neat
est little mathematical puzzle that came
to our notice
A man has sixty apples; he sells dO
for fifteen cents, which is a half a cent
a piece, or two apples for one cent. He
sells the remaining 30 for ten cents,
which is a third of a cent a piece, or
three apples for one cent. Thus we
see that for five apples he gets two
cents; now how many cents does he
get for 60 apples? The problem seems
plain enough, and the rule of three gives
the immediate resul. of twenty-four.—
But on the other hand, if he gets fifteen
Cents for 30 of his apples; and ten cents
for the remaining 80, it seems pretty
evident he gets twenty-five cents for
