when all this failed, the colored Voters
were hustled, hit on the bead with.
clubs, and driven away by violetiee and
blows, which often left them nearly
helpless. This was for intimidation,

and the immense loss-by retarding develoPment
which must ensue, is incalculable. The fires in

town of Breckenridge, a town in Towns county,
near the line of the iorthern Pacido railroad.—
From here it appears to have spread to the ' Big
Woods,' and thence all through the southern por
tion of the State. Numbers of tillages and cit.
lee were swept from the face of the earth, not
withstanding all that foresight and sagacity could
do to save them. Men by the hundreds were
stationed about their outskirts with the, purpose
of fighting the irresistible . elements, and every
precaution that human ingenuity' could suggest
was used—in some oases with ,some slight suc
