The massacre at Plum Greek A Thrilllox Narrative. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 5 October 1867
The massacre at Plum Greek A Thrilllox Narrative. A correspondent of the Missouri Democrat, writing from Omaha on the Bth of August, Bays that the remains of Engineer Brookes Bowers and Fireman George Ilcnshaw have just arrived. On the same train was a man named William Thompson, a native of Kngland, who turned out to be one of the telegraph repairers reported killed, lie attracted a great deal of attention from® the very extraordinary fact that the covering for the head which natives had so kindly endowed him with wa* absent. People flocked from all parts to view the gory baldness, which had come upon hiin suddently, without any premonitory symptoms. The poor fellow sufTercd horribly, if wo might judge from his facial contortions. He seemed weak from loss of blood. He had received a gaping wound in the neck, and a bullet in the muscle of his right arm. Ho was taken to the Hamilton House, and a physician was sent for who attended to his wounds. Id a pail of water was his scalp, abou...
THE LUCKY WOUND. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 5 October 1867
THE LUCKY WOUND. Those familiar wiUi tbe west bank of our beautiful Hudson, between Hoboken and Wecbawkcn, ,will recollect a wild, dashing rivulet that descends from the western hills is a thousand meander?, dow leaping: over (ho jutting rocks in miniature cataracts, and again kieing tbe green turf of the valley, till it com mingles its tribute in the Welcoming waters of the majestic river. Withitt sound of that rivulet, and not more than throo hundred yards from its myuth, in the olden time, stood the humble dwellipg of an honest German named Gotfried Moyei*, bat frmiliariy known as " Got Moyer, the fisherman." At the date in refcrence, little exceot a portion of its foundation and its board thresholdstone was remaining. Once this humble dwelling echoed and re-echoed with the joyons sounds of mirth. Then might have been seen, as day broke from the East, the hardy fisherman, wending his way to hiß smack, to pursue his daily avocation, his good-hearted wife bustling about in the disc...

LOUISIANA AND ALABAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Appeal — 5 October 1867
LOUISIANA AND ALABAMA. The great theme is the news from Louisiana and Alabama.' The result of the elections in those Stateß has saved the whole National Radical or Republican party. If these State* had failed to vote for a conven- • tion, all would have been lost for an indefinate time. The news received some days since on the result of the first day's election in Louisiana was discouraging, but j subsequently Alabama tells us that "see too," is with Louisiana. It turns out that the freedmen are not so ignorant after all, M some of their enemios tell us. They have groped their way out of darkness, thank God, and have found light. Their action in the Louisiana and Alabama elections has followed Congress to the very letter and spirit. Their political accession will prove to be the most valuable to the Nation in less than five years. It is expected that the other rebel States will follow. If so, the Northern Democracy will be in a strange attitude &lt; in attempting to force pr...

[rftOM TBI CHRIBTIAR RIOORDIR.] LETTER FROM LOUISIANA. A long time haa elapsed since the readers of the Recorder hare seen anything of the doings of Northern Louisiana. Many and sad changes hare been made since my last to your valuable paper, including political and financial interests. Politics are prospering greatly, while finances are decreasan extent imperceptibly. A cloud of dark and impenetrable despair is hanging over our heads. Troubles and misfortunes, indiscribable, are thrown continually in our path, an epidemic that all hare felt to a great degree. Making but a comparative small crop last year, this year almost nothing. The army worm has long since com. menced his destruction, and now, not a field in this parish but hs got his terrible maks left to tell of poverty and destruction.

0t a 11) • . In this city, Oct. 2d. Maria Augustine, wife of John G. Pallicr, a native of New York City, aged 52 years, one month and 1 day. OBITB Air, It is with deep regret that we chronicle the death of Mrs. Pallier ; and herald it forth to the many friends of the deceased lady and her bereaved husband. Its announcement in New York, her native city, will cast a gloom as widespread as in this State, whore sho has resided with her husband over 15 years. The Palliersare among the oldest families in the city—pioneers in all that helped to make society and the social circle great. Some four years ago Mrs. Pallier was a very active member of the Ladies Pacific Accumulating and Beneficial Socicty of the city, and was its President, since which she had chosen to limit herself in a sphere of more reserved quietude, though she was equally zealous and useful for the promotion of every good cause. We must be permitted to digress, by stating that her unwavering fidelity in tho support of this...
