A few weeks ago a man located in Green county and called himself "Abbid digal" or 'Uoly One," said he had re ceived instruction by Divine revelation to free the colored people of Georgia from the bondage of a false religion, and deluded them into believing he was the colored Savior. He held services in the fields and groves and adorned him self on these occasions with gtudy tur bans and flowing robes. He had beads and ornamenta that be sold readily as shields against the power of Satan. He was regarded by the white people as a harmless crank. The stranger secretly informed the colored people that there was a "land of promise" which he hod recently discovered. It was, he he said, a place prepared for ne groes, where they had neiiher to work nor starve, a paradise that was to be tho home of all who followed him. He bade them steal or to sell all they had and put their money in his keeping, and on a certain night they would start on their journey. A dozen families sold their cabins, crops, and all they pos sessed, and put the money in the hands of "Abbidigal." Tbe awindl r appointed two nights a?o for a meeting at an isola ted spjt, when a band of about forty men, women and children congregated and waited in vain.
