A colored woman by the name of Eali, formerly a slave of Thomas H. Leak, was seriously if not fatally shot through the back through a window by an unknown person, on Tuesday night last, on the plantation of Dr. Wm. H. Felton, some three miles north of this place.  The woman is not expected to live.  The act is supposed to have been perpetuated by one of her own color.

N. B. – The negro who is charged with the crime, has been arrested and lodged in jail.


A Remarkable Fact.

Not one solitary adult person living in the incorporation limits of Cartersville, died during the year 1867, and but very few children.  In fact, the physician might truthfully say that the state of health in the community is distressingly good.
