We learn that a little negro child on the farm of Capt. R. H. Cannon, in the 17th district of this county, was literally roasted alive, on Monday last.  Its clothes took fire from a wash pot in the absence of its mother.


We are informed that Mr. S. J. Cox, who shot and killed Parsons, at Rockmart, Polk county, Ga., a few days since, and who was committed to jail in Cedartown, has been bailed out, and is now at his home in Rockmart.
