A man by the name of John Nevells was killed Saturday about four miles from town on the Rome road. His death was occasioned by the accidental discharge of a pistol in his pocket, which severed an artery and caused blood to flow so freely that after walking about ten steps he became exhausted and died in about three quarters of an hour. The deceased lived on Mr. Wooley’s farm near Kingston, and in company with another man, whose name we did not learn, had started out for the purpose of hunting hands to pick cotton. We think the twain were worshippers at the shrine of Bacchus, and it is very probable but for the dizzy god the unfortunate affair, which whirled one into eternal destiny, would not have occurred.
