Put in your Pipe.

A negro woman, formerly a slave of Robert Rogers, of this county, deceased, was very destitute and sorely afflicted with an immense tumor on her abdomen, from which it was very apparent she must soon die.

On last Tuesday several of our physicians held a consultation and resolved to remove it, which they did successfully.  Her young master, Robert L. Rogers, living at the Lime Kiln above this place, on hearing of her distressed and helpless condition, came down and hunted her up, and employed nurses to attend her upon her, and ordered that she should have anything that she wanted, and he would foot the bill.  At last accounts she was alive and doing well.  What more could have been done for a white woman?


The Fall Term of the Superior Court of this county is still in session, this being the third week.  Much business has been dispatched and much still remains to be done.  The cases involving the most interest are those connected with the late Confederacy, both civil and criminal.  The former have been adjusted upon the scaling principle; the latter, one of them, in particular, is now hung up with the jury.—This is the case of the State vs. Wm. Light, for the murder of Mr. Satterfield during the war.  This case is eliciting considerable interest and the jury, thus far have failed to agree on a verdict.


There was a case of yellow fever in this county last week.  The gentleman, whose name we did not learn, was a brother-in-law of Col. J. L. Rowland, of this county, and had stopped with Col. R., as he was passing through the country from the west, where he had contracted the disease.—He died on last Saturday at Col. R.’s residence, and his remains were sent back to Texas, his home, for interment.
