Wretchedness.—An officer from Bartow county, Ga., left at the city guardhouse yesterday, to be turned over to Mr. Alexander, the railroad contractor, a white woman named Adeline Evans, with an infant at the breast only six weeks old.  She was convicted of murder in the first degree, and is under sentence of imprisonment for life in the penitentiary.  She is a most wretched looking sight, and what disposition Mr. Alexander will make of her, we are really curious to know,---Macon Telegraph.
