A Hideeas Hofcgobllaj Can tea (O.) Spec. Cor. fM. Louta Globe-Democrat. Many years ago German' named Knoun lived abemt two miles south of Harrisburg. on the Louisyille road. Knoufi wag a well- to-do bachelor, but lived in a wretched cabin amid the most squalid surroundings. Every thing that he could get was converted into gold, and he almost starved himself' that his haard might be increased, finally he died. and alt ellorts to find tbe cold that be was known to have had were unavailing. It was Iupposed that it was buried in a ravine near lis cabin, but it was never discovered. After lis death the. place was avoided by the Iieiglibors. wbo averreo) that a ball of tire iepv guard over tbe ravine. Following these stories came others of a more aensational nature, wbicli would freeze the marrow in the bones, and which were discussed p round every preside. The l.clit was described by all who hul seen It aa atliostly supernatural. !icd of a nature to terrify tne atoutent heart, t would under to and fro oil tho (arm. riao ligb in the air, descend into -he hollows, truinbliiigiy move down a small stream of water, suddenly brighten, and aa Quickly fade away, and upon aevt-ral occasions it bo-came irnnaiorined into hideous monsters which attacked any ventursnmc traveler who aouulil to liiscover its nature and origin. I win one occasion a farmer named Brown, well known in the community, was driving along tne road, accompanied uy his wife, never dreaming of evil, btindenly he beheld the light advance to tbe middle of tbe road just ahead of him where it paused for a moment and then darted into the sleigh. Brown whipped np hia horses, w ben -the light assume. I first the form of a tiery red dog with glaring eyes, red tongue and hideous fangs. This monster faded away, aud a pule-bluu coflin. standing uuright. took its place. This remained in thy butter nntil the sUrasborg road was reached and the specter diappeared. The couple were almost crazed, and ior weeks it was feared that theU reason bad been dethroned. Ueorge Beam, a farmer's boy. Hying in the neighborhood, was attracte-1 by the light ana followed it until he reached what he thotiafbt to lie a pile o glittering gold pieces, put when he attempted to seize them they became transformed into a dragon with several distinct headsand horrible fangs of fiery red. the body of tile dragon being blue. Otuera have averred that they have seen the specter iu diilerent forms, as a globe. a a star, as a cresceut. as a yellow egg. a blue heads lone.' an iron kettle, and as an old gray-haired and white-roised man. it changed its lorin and its color with ligbtmng rapidity. , A man named Cain Libel 1 oni waaered thai fie would seek out the light and defy it. , He nailed a revolver and went to the place. Tbe light soon appeared in the form ot aa old man. and he shot at it. It changed in a moment to a hydra-headed scorpion. and made a forocious dart at tho white face of the terrified Canipbeil.' Several who hud followed saw the succier and made cood thoir esuaue. several davs afterward Campbell was found with his (:u:i bauly burned, wandering about the Country, some miles away, muttering unintelligibly. and every once in a while giving vent to the most horrible shrieks. He was secured ami cou lined in au imuuse aaylum. v. Here no died. - The Phnnte.m Ferry-Beat, Birmingham (Ala Hpeclaf. to at, Louis Olobo- Pemoerat. Time has well n igii obliterated all trace of "Dargin's Ferry.-" and for fory years Flint River has been crossed at tiiaa point only by a phantom boat, carrying two gpostly pas sengers,. Dargin's Ferry is located on Flint River, in Morgan Couuty.aiid for many years it was the only crossing for twenty miles. The ferry waaestablhihed by gliomas Dargin. one of the first wtiito settlers of that section. UM constructed a rude ferry-boat, and by means of a chain stretched across tbe river he pulled his boat from bank to bank. Only one vehicle could be carried over on tbe little boat at a trip, but by charging rather exces sive-tolls Dargiu iUianaaed to make a com fortabie living, n beu - tbe lirst stage from-' Nashville. . Tennessee, to Tuscaloosa. Ala., then tho capital of .this Ntate. was established. Dargin's Ferry became" a place of no little importance. 1 lie stages crossed the river at that point, and iararin opened siuaii lairiii.-wun n-auuitu jnraaiy lu uis in come. For several years be prospered, and in" addition to a"new ferry-boat ' of much larger proportions. .Mr. Margin built a rcpidem-a on the bill. near tbu river. . At that lime Dargin's family consisted of himself, a pretty daughter about twenty years of dge, and a few colored servants. - His wiie iiau uteu a lew years oeiore. ana old liargin s uatignier Mary was Uls House Xeeper and only companion. It was said the old man .wits very eccentric arid ill-tempered and ut times was almost cruel to his child. . Mary Aargtn.teil in love with a c stage- driver named Ned ines. The girl s father bitterly opposed the match, and ordered roung Vines to keep away from his bouse, ieeven went so far aa to have the young man discharged from the slaan coach ton-pany on Kome trumped-np charge. Not sat isiiad with this precaution, he kept his daughter closely confined in the bouse. But loving young neans were not separated in those days bx trillea any more than they are at tho present time. )oung Viaes managed to communicate with hts sweetheart, and an elopement was planned, vines was to be at the ferry at midnight, and tbe girl promised to escape from the house and meet him there. They were to cross the river in the ferry-boat, leaving it on the other side in order to duly pursuit. Once safely aerobe the river they would be cared for by friends on tbe other side. As the girl was leaving the house to join her lover she was discovered by one of he negro servants, who hastened ltm, inform .old inaa Dargin. The old iiibo reauiicu vuei river uana. jus la lime to see a lam t outline ot then twenty varda frnn to see a faint outline of the boat, which was rds from the) bank. The old niati was vt ila with rage, and without think- luat of the Dosslble result ha Uli fnptatna.fi the. chain waich stretched aoiosa the river, and oy means oi wnicn tne boat waa drawn froas buuktobank. Tbe river was much swollen oy neavy rains, ana wneu tlie chain was loosened the boat immediately began to drift rapiaiy aown stream. A piercing scream from his daughter caused the old man to realize what he had done, but it waa tnn uie. and. with a cntse on bis lips, he returned to the house, Late the next afternoon the bodies of the two young people were found in uie river several amies oeiow vue terry. When the bodiea were takan to. Havrarina bouse he fell prostrate by the Bide of his dead child and luouned, "I killed her! I killed her!" For hull an hour be lay on the lioor groaning and sobbing; then, auddealy springing to his feet, he ran to tbe river bank and plunged headlong into the swift-flowing stream. . His body was recovered, and next day there was a triple funeral. Travelers by the stagecoach were transferred in small boats for a time, but aqon tbe old colored man, a former slave of Iiargiu, who was in charge of the boats, declared that the ferry was haunted. He aaid at midnight every night a, phantom, boat would cross the rivvr. drawn py invisible hands. When the moon was shining two white-robed, ghostly forms could be seen sianding in the boat clasped iu each other's arms. Tbe old colored man declared that one of those ghostly figures was that of "young missus, an' de oddji was Massa Vines, ae man what she done run'd away wid." The old colored man was thoroughly frightened, and .declared that he would rather plunge into tbe riverthau again attempt to row a boat across at that place. The pIkiqioiu boat waa a fixture at Dargin's Ferry. Hundreds of people came no see it. No matter bow dark the night, justat midnight the dim outlines of a boat gliding smoothly across the river could he seen. A new ferry was established five miles up the river, the stasa road was changed, and a lew years later the new ferry cave way to a bridge. Ail this happened forty years ini. ant to. d:iy people living in that vicinity say that every night just at midnight the phantom boat and its two ghostly passengers can be wi n crossing the river. The old house on wie inn. iuhi unoccupied, is now a rnassot ruins, and only a faint trace of the old boat lauding remains, but the SDirila nf tha dead lovers come night after nitbt and in their phautom boat cross to tne other shore.

Ths article of last .Sunday, under heading of Crojkcd r ruit Uealers'elirped from the East Coast Messenger, a Florida paper, has been a genera! topic of conversation during the past week, on account of the prominence and high reputation of tbe firm. ' The article makes interesting reading mat ter, but docs not come within a thousand miles of the facts. - It was claimed that Davidson A.

This is all very interesting, but it won't do for our brethren in tbe South to attack reputable firms of this city in this manner. Ta EmcjCirbr. by request, has made a care ful and thorough investigation, and takes pleasure in informing its readers. that tbe firm of Davidson & Devoto is as "square as a die," and the article was false in every par ticular. - Many readers having beard of Mr. James Harris, of Citra.
