Row Orer the Make-up of the Jnrj as Drawn bj the Jury C«m- mlggioners. task of drawing a struck j'iry to try tbe Forgy-Harvey land case occurred this morning and it was> carried oat with many sensational features. The charge was openly made by tbe attorneys for tee defense tbat tbe jury had been set up and a row of no mean proportions was precipitated which for a time threatened bloodshed. A coming to blows waa averted by tbe deputy clerk throwing himself into the oreachand declaring that no fight should occur in the clerk's office. The jury was selected by Lemuel G. Patterson and James P. Martin, jury commissioners. As drawn the jury contained the names or forty persons. Attorneys for the defense maintained that they bad had no voice in the selection of the jury and insisted that under the law they were entitled to such privilege. An appeal was made to Judge Chase, who decided that it would be better to draw another list of jurors. This was done and both sides to the controversy are now satisfied. The following persons were chosen to serve on the struck jury: Wm. T. Sbafer, Tlpton township. Joseph G. Funk, Clay. Philip Vtolford, Harrison. Harrison Barnett, Harrison. Sylvester Cragan, Washington. James Mummy, Clinton. George Heitzman, Eel. Jonathan Grable, Bethlehem. A. P. Jenks, Eel. Samuel Panabaker, Tlpton. Eli Greensfelder, Be;. Perry Kesling, Tlpton. James M. Etnire, Eel. Julius Linneman, Eel. Frederick Seybold. Eel. Max J. Fisher, Eel. This is the first time a struck jury has bt:en drawn since 1892, and it is said to be the third one ID the history of the county.U The case will be tried the first week of the January term and will be hotly contested. The attorneys for the plaintiff are M. Winfield and George E. Boss, while Judge Dykeman, Nelson & Myers and McConnell & Jenklnes represent the defendant. DR. C. D.

GALLANT WAR RECORD OF THE FORTY-NINTH REGIMENT. A Cr»ck B»tt»llon In Thornm*' G«orfim Brigade—Ixmf IJ»t of Battle* Under tee. Stonewall Jackson and A. F. Hill Proposed to Arm Slaves For Beerult*. [Copvright, 1837. by American Press Asso r elation. Book rights reserved.] NY history of the battles of Lee's army would be incomplete did it not tell the story of the desperate fighting Georgians of Thomas' Georgia brigade. This command was organized in front of Richmond in 1S62 and after a brief career under General Joseph B. Anderson, who was disabled by a wound in the seven days' battles, foil under .the leadership of General Edward L. Thomas, colonel of the Thirty-fifth Georgia. The brigade comprised the Fourteenth, Thirty-fifth, Forty-fifth and Forty-ninth regiments from the Empire State of the Confederacy. After proving its mettle on tbe field of battle it was. assigned to the famous Light division, led by the fiery A. P. Hill, in StonewallJackson's corps. A -complete record of the battles oi these regiments cannot be obtained, bul one hazards little in saying that the Forty-ninth regiment fought in a greater number of the regnlar battles of Lee't army than any other of the brigade and perhaps of the division and corps. The Forty-ninth took its baptism of fire a, Seven. Pines or Fair Oaks, on the 31s of May, 1862, and fragments of.it were in action at various places on the work? at Petersburg when they were overrui by the several Federal corps on April 2 1SG5. It was in the thick of the figh in the five great battles around Rich mond iu 18G2, for after Fair Oaks i fought at Mechanicsville or Beaver Dam creek, .Tune 26; at Cold Harbor or Gaines Mill, the 27th; at Frazer' Farm, the 30th, during the seven days .and at Malveru Hill, July 1. "With Jackson the regiment marehec from tbe James to the Kapidan to fal' upon Pope's army, bore the brunt of tin fighting in Hill's column at Cedu Mountain and sixw desperate work dur ing the two days' battle of Jackson' corps at Manassas, or Bull Run Second on tbe 29th aud 80th of August. It wu one of the few regiments closely euga ed with Kearny's men at Chantilly on Sept. 1. In that singular battle, whic began during a terrific tbvmderston and ended in darkness, these Georgian met the enemy hand to hand. Kearn was shot from tho saddle by Sergt-un McCrimmou of Company B and die within Jackson's lines. This affair i set down in history ;us a skirmish, bn it was a bloody one for those in the heat of it. Two Federal major generals, Kearuy and I, I. Stevens, were killed. In the" ranks of the Forty-ninth there wero eight casualties, three of them fatal, which was quite enough for a skirmish, but the commanding officer, Major Rivers, was permanently disabled by a wound which cost him a leg. Antieram is the one great buttle of tho series not inscribed upon tbe banner of the Forty-ninth. It wa.s engaged at tho capture of Harper's Ferry and did not rejoin its division until .Lee had re- XMAS HOLIDAY SLIPPERS! PRESENTS. Best Patterns! Best Fabrics! Very Best Styles!

North Anna river, Cold Karhuv and the defense, of Petersburg cost the. regiment a hisavy dole in blood, tilth.:ugb H missed the slaughter pens and made a record for giving heavy Hnv.s ro the enemy. At Fair Oaks i he Forty-ninth took its baptism cf lire, iu Long-Street's coljran at Fair Oaks proper. At that point the Confederates -truck Federals who vrtre alert and did not make a surprise as was the case at Seven Pines, another part of the same lislii. General Joseph E. .Johnston saw the Forty-ninth going into battle aud exclaimed, "Those men move like veterans." Ai the battle of Mechanicsville. June 26, ibe Georgians stormed the terrible blcff defenses held by the Pennsylvania reserves on Beaver Dsm creek. Colonel A. J. Lane, the commander, was severely wounded and disabled for further cervice. This was the beginning of the seven days, and the regiment eaine out of the battle week with a loss of 13tl killed and wounded, two commanders disabled iind one captured. AT the battle of Cedar Mountain, which followed in August, the Forty- ninth for a rime had a favorable elevated position, and the men exhausted their ammunition iu picking off tba enemy at long range. At the second 3Iauassas and again at Frt-dericksbtirg the Forty- ninth was pr.t io the supreme test for gallantry. In both battles tbe line was pierced by desperate charges of the enemy on the flank of Thomas' brigade. None bnt a soldier can appreciate, the danger iu a crisis of thut nature. At Mauassas the Forty-ninth promptly changed front and engaged the daring Federals at arms' length, beating them off and restoring tie line. The only occasion when tbe Federals broke tie Confederate line at Fredericksburg was on the flank of Thomas' brigade- This was done by ileade's Pennsylvanians at Hamilton Heights. The Georgians rallied and recovered the line. This battle closed active campaigning of seven months. During that time the regiment had lost 33? men. „„ bad been shot down, Colonel Lane and Major Rivers, as already mentioned, and Colonel S. M. Manning, who was killed at Cedar Mountain. The second year of the regiment comprised the great battles of Cbaucellors- ville and Gettysburg. In both of these the Georgians took part in tbe most desperate charges made by tbe corps of A. P. Hill. Its losses were 120 killed and •wounded. Captain J. M. Jones was killed at Gettysburg while commanding the regiment. Under the lead of Colonel J. T. Jordan the Forty-ninth began the third year's campaign by a bloody straggle in the Wilderness, which thinned its already sadly diminished ranks by a toll of 91 killed aud wounded. .Atone time, on the 5th of May, Thomas' whole brigade was cut off by a flank movement of the enemy. General Thomas coolly faced his command to the rear and led it forward on a charge which cleared the field. At Spr ylvania the 12th of May the Forry-nii- with the rest of the "Georgia brigade, fought in tho "Bloody Angle" side by side with MeGowairs South Carolinians. That desperate struggle over the breastworks lasting 20 hours, is well known. Xext to the battle of the Wildernes, the Forty-ninth suffered the heaviest in an affair at Petersburg \vhich is scarce ly taken into account in war histories In the action of March 25, 1S05, a Fort Stedmau and other parts of the line Thomas' brigade was desperate!} engaged and the Forty-ninth lost 8 men. A week later, on April 2, began the finish fight over Lee's breastworks. Early iu the day the division command er. General A. P. Hill, was killed aur soon afterward a Federal column broki over,the works between Thomas' Geor gians and Scales' Xorth Carolina bri gade. Colonel Jordan rallied his men and with detachments from other regi inents vainly attempted to regain thi works. These troops, very much scatter ed in commands, finally made a stani at Forts Gregg and Alexander. Th Forty-ninth, reduced to a fragment held "on at Fort Alexander until driven out by showers of shot and shell. Colo nel Jordan was the last man to leavi the fort and was severely wounded, tb> fifth commander of the regiment dis abled in battle. About 30 Georgians among them Adjutant Newman of th Forty-ninth, joined the defenders' o Fort Gregg, making a garrison of 21 men. This parry held out against a Fed eral division cf Gibbon's corps unti overrun, by numbers. There were 5 dead Confederates iu the work and onlj SO uuwounded among the prisoners Adjutant Newman of the Forty-ninth was taken prisoner and carried to For "Warron. Inside the lining of his coa was concealed a document which when brought to light revealed a. strrang chapter in the history of this gallau regiment. During iss four years of service the Forty-ninth had lost 485 me by death, 2Uo were permanently dis abled and many of its five hundred odd wounded survivors were unfit fo the Kinks. Every ablebodied Georgia was already under arms, and in orde to recruit its numbers the Forty-aim petitioned the commanding general fo leave to .summon the slaves to its aic .The document preserved by Adjutan Newman, its last official custodian, wa as follows: CAMP FOKTY-.VIXTK GEORGIA REGIMENT, >.
