--A gentleman of this city yesterday informed us that Butler
, the brute-beast, is a native of Jackson county
, in this State, and that a brother of his, a highly respectable gentleman, now resides in that county.--He gave us the names or several persons well known in that part of Georgia
--one living in Fulton county
--who know Butler
from his birth till he left the State
This is something we never heard before, and was, to us, an unpleasant announcement.
We had always supposed he was a native of the only place that is fit to produce his like--Massachusetts
; though we have observed this: when a Southern man becomes completely Yankeeized he is the meanest of all. Of this class are Pope
, born in Kentucky
, born in Tennessee
, and Butler
, if it be true that he was born in Georgia
.--Atlanta (Ga.) Confederacy.
