agaiast tbe rough partM that when jj-c. Jones as frankly lold her ; that
-he eaase to go away she carried off; was WeH, for now the latter knew ex-
t pi inters in plenty in her hair.
Finally she heard something with
distinctness. Mr. Capers was telling
his wife, who appeared to be In great
slee, of a man who had been saying
bard things to his wife. Said be, in
the coarse ofhis remarks :
"Mr Jones got to abasing nis iam-,ieot
ily at last. He declared his wife
should not go out visitiag, and threat -
ened to shut her up n sse carea to
disobey him. As for going to these
evening meetings, he declared he
meant to put a stop te it ; he had had
enough ofit. It did not do her any
sort of good, and made a great deal of
trouble and expense to Atm. rte

Mrs. Jenkins started up ia
surprise. "2ow, I want to know,"
eaid she to herself, "if oer minister
savs that of Mr. Jones !"
Without waiting to hear any more i
Mrs. Jenkins folded her arms tightly
and defiantly about her, and started
down the stairs. The next thing she
did was to throw on her "things,"
and start off at high speed for her
friend's, Mrs. Tautog.
"Tow, I want to know!" said the
latter, as Mrs. Jenkins came In thro'
the baek entrance. "Do tell If that's .
von ! S!t down, do. What's the word
this afternoon ? Heard anything very
new lately ?"
"O, well, no I do'no, either, p'raps
It may be new to you, though.'
"Why, what is it?" said she. "I
dare say 'tis. I'm not in the way of

"O, well, nothln' really worth men

Tbe next thing to be done was for
Mr. Joaes and his family to leave Mr.
Capers' chorea , snd go somewhere
else. The clergyman was a good deal
troubled about it, and sent his wife
over to see if she could dJseover the
cause. Mrs. Joaes received her with
s grrat deal of eoldnese, and seemed '
actly what the matter was, and what
it wss necessary te do,
Going borne and imparting tbe in-
telligence to her husband, he mani
fested quite as much astonishment as
she. He tut and thought it over a
Hrtie while, in order the better to col-
himself before taking a single
atep, and then started, oiT direct for
Mr Jone5 He toId him wbat be
had just heard, and declared tbe
whole of it an untruth from beginning
to end. Mr. Jones went on with all
the minutest particulars connected
with the affair, making the most oft away from the country by the wo
the ease in his power against the mln- j men, and for four centuries that ccm

so base a slander, if it was within hu

back home and set about it.
For some weeks It was a mystery

thing. It perplexed him beyond con
ception. Finally, his wife came run
ning down stairs one day, her face
flushed and excited, and said to him
under her unsteady breath :
"Mr. Capers, have you ever noticed
that knot-hole In your study floor?''
"Why, no," eaid he. "Where is it
QDd ,-hat 0f f t?
"Just come up-stairs and see."
And up they went together. She
pointed to the tell-.tale spot, and re
marked, in a whisper:
"I just caught Mrs. Jenkins with
her ear to that very hole."
That was the first step toward the
unravelment of the mystery. In a
few days more the whole of it began
to come out. He had sent his wife
round to make a few innocent Inquir
ies, and she had brought back just
euch intelligence as he expected and
required. And putting this thing
and that together, and recalling cer
tain ideas that up to that time had
passed out of his mind altogether, he
thought the matter was all explained
at last. So he went over to Mr. Jones
"Come," said he, "if you will con
sent to go home with me for & short
time, I think I can explain some
things that have hitherto stood in the
way of our friendship."
Mr. Jones did not happen to love
malice well enough to refuse, and ac-j

at once took him up into his study,
and shut the door.

the liberty to come and sit with me?"
Mr. Jones said he understood that.
"Xow then," continued the clergy-
man, "I am in the habit of frequently
reading aloud to her. And once up
on a time, I happened to be reading
from this very book" picking up a
volume of fiction from the table,) "and

And he went on to read to Mr. Jones
several paragraphs, in which occurred
the following :
"Mr. Jones got to abusing his fam

should not go out visiting, and threat

Mr. Jones burst out laughing. "Is
that all ?" said he, his face as red as

"That and the knot-hole," said Mr.
Capers, smiling good-naturedly.
Mr. Jones offered him hla hand.
from that moment they were friends
again. He went back to church the

from the verv outset resisted the wave
ef Ottoman conquest that fie centu
ries ago swept over Eastern Europe.
It then had a seaward frontier, but in
147? Scutari was captured on the
south, and the ancestors of tbe Her
zejroviHtians on tbe north submitted
to the Turk. Ivan, tbe Montenegrin
j hero, rather than submit, took bis
people, left the fruitful valievs, and i

retired to the rocks and mountains.
As the centre of his mountain home
be built a monastery at Cittinje, and ,
then and there the Montenegrins
voted a fundamental law that "no son
of Tsernagora could quit the field
without the order of his Chief," and
that every coward should be dis
graced, and banished, and hunted
1450, and was succeeded by his eldest
son, George. His younger brother,
Stephen, went with a band of com
panions to Constantinople, and pro
posed the betrayal of his country to
Bajazet the Second. They were re
quired to turn Mahometans, whieh
they did, and then setting out with
an Ottoman force, sought to conquer
the country, but were defeated by
George, who took back the renegades
and allowed them the free exercise of
their religion. On the retirement of
George, In 1516, the sovereign power
was made over to the Metropolitan,
and then began and lasted for 336
years "an ecclesiastical Government
in miniature over laymen, far more
noble than that of the Popes in its
origin and purer in its exercise, as
well as in some respects not less re
markable." The renegades, howev
er, whom they had taken back, du
ring these centuries, proved to be a
serpent in the bosom of Montenegro.
That serpent must be strangled or
Montenegro must lose its freedom.
One of their Bishops was cruel I v tor- i
tured by them while consecrating a
church, and then it was determined
the renegades should be slain. On
Christmas Eve of the year 1703 the
deed was accomplished. All who
would not return to their faith were
put to the sword, and, "gathered in
Cettinje, the people hailed with sonss
of joy the reddening dawn of the about 425 years. On the 29th of May,

same during the war of the French
Revolution, although they owe no j
gratitude to either England or An
tria, who soug"ht to exclude them i
i from Eccess to the sea. Bcssia, how-
ever, has requited their services with
a small annual subvention.
After an allusion to the size of Its
country and its population at various
epochs, Mr. Gladstone refers to the
various abortive attempts of the
Turks to overpower this little band of
mountaineers with overwhelming
forces by sheer weight of numbers.
In 1772 the Turks with ICO.COO men
Invaded Montenegro, and Dan
ilo assailed their camp with 12,000
men, and routed them. With a loss
j 0f 31s men, he slew at the lowest es
timate 20,G0O. In 1713 the Turks en
tered Montenegro again with 12Q,G0O
of their best troops, and, although
they carried off many women and
children Into slavery, could not hold
the country. 1722 the Turks, with
2),0OO men under Hussein Pasha,
were defeated by 1,000 Montenegrins.
In 1727 another Turkish Invasion was
simllarly suppressed. In 132 Topal
Osman Pasha marched against them
with 30,000 men, but had to fly with y husband was murdered for'no

slaughter of 20.000 Turks with 3.000 j his son-in-law. McClellan was an

of colors, arms, munitions and bag
gage." In 17S2 Peter the Saint came
to the throne, and for forty-eight
years carried his country Eafely
through almost constant struggles.
In 1796, by his authority, a code of
laws was promulgated ; In 17SS he
appointed a body of Judges ; and
1503 he added a supplement to the
code. He was succeeded by his
nephew, Hadatomoro, a giant in
stature, an incorruptible Prince, and
a cultivated man. At the head of G0
men he defeated a Turkish army of, tbe mob vas breaking open with axes

of Bishops on the accession of Danilo,
the nephew of the deceased Vladika.
The change was effected by his at-
tachment for a young girl In Trieste j
whom he could only marry by avoid-

military reputation of his predeces

and in May, 1S5S, defeated the Turks
in the remarkable battle of Grabovo,
in which, without artillery, and with
very inferior arms, tbe Montenegrins
swept down tbe hills and destroyed

j Danilo was shot by an assassin in
1S60, and was succeeded by his neph-

h3 record Ince tbe ontbreak of tbe
Herzegovina revolt last summer, our
readers are familiar. Bulgaria has
been devastated. Servia has been de
feated, Bosnia and Herzegovina have
been overrun, Montenegro has been
constantly victorious with inferior
numbers. The entire Turkish force
directed against her was 130,000, while
she brought into action, all told, 25,
000 men. The slain was reckoned on
the Turkish side at 26,000 men : on
the side of Montenegro at 1,000 men.
Such a record a3 this is unparalleled
In the history of the world. The
population of Montenegro does not
reach 200,000. The Empire of the
Porte numbers 30,000,000, and for
years it has been unable to conquer
this little Switzerland of Eastern Eu-
Jrope. fcucn a record justifies tne
tribute of Tennyson :

It justifies Mr. Gladstone's eloquent
declaration: "Montenegro, which
has carried down through four centu
ries In the midst of a constant siege
of perils a charmed life, we may say
with confidence, will not die. 27o
Bussian, no Austrian eagle will build
Its nest in the Black Mountain. The
men of Tsernagora, who have never
allowed the very shadow of a Turkish
title to grow up by silent prescription,
will claim their portion of an air and
soil genial to man, and of free passage
to and fro over the land and sea which
God has driven to us."

Be Neat. Young ladies, If they
only knew how disgusting to men
slovenliness is, and how attractive are
displays of neatness and taste, would
array themselves in the simplicity
and cleanliness of the lilies of the
neld; or, if able to indulge in costly
attire, they would study the harmo
nious blending of colors which nature
exhibits in all her works. A girl of
good taste and habits of neatness can
make a more fascinating toilet with a
shilling calico dress, a few cheap rib
bons and laces, and such ornaments
as she can gather from the garden,
than a vulgar, tawdry creature who
is worth thousands, and has the jew
elry and wardrobe of a princess.

could not become a naturaI2:ed citizen
because the United States Govern

he could neither be bought or fright

act or harbored a thought that would
make them blush. Clay tried to
stand between him and his murder
dersrs, while Cornelia and I ran to
the door to obtain help to carry my
husband home. The blood was run
ning from Cornelia's shattered arm,
which sbe held up and begged for
help. The answer was a shot which
struck her leg. By this time about
twenty-five of the crowd ran In. I
hastened back to where my husband
lay and seized a gun. The leader
started baek and fired a shot at me. I
then fired at him, and tbe crowd fled
again. My son and myself, with the
help of the demons who assisted in
killing my husband, carried him
home. We were pursued by the
mob to our gate. Cornelia kept her
bleeding body between us and them.
Arriving at home I found the ser
vants had fled with the keys, and we
had to force the windowopen, through
which we climbed. A kind negro
brought my dead boy home, but was
afraid to remain."
Mrs. Chisholm then described her
efforts to relieve the sufferings and
dress the wounds of her husband and
daughter, and concludes as follows:
"My once happy family Is now re
duced to mvself and two little sons.
Clay is watched and threatened. I
have been warned that my life is in i

following to that paper:
Judge I)oIa, of St. Franeisvili, West
Fellaiana, one of the parishes la whieh
the reign of terror prevailed decia

of tne peace by a large majority, and
commissioned fay Governor 2 iehoiis.
He likewise received a commission
from Postmaster General Hey early
last month. On the loth instant be
left .New Orleans for home to enter i
upon his duties. He reports to the
Postmaster General that the Demo-
cratic Postmaster refused to surrender
the office, that the Democratic Sheriff
to whom he appealed for protection
refused to execute any process issued
by Dual, and said the white people
were tired of Bepubliean3, and would
no longer tolerate them in office. The
parish attorney. Leak, advised him
not to qualify a3 justice of the peace.
The clerk of the court told him if be

buckshot, and that the peopie would
no longer permit such organization.
Many of Dula's friends clandestinely
sought him at his house and warned
him not to remain home or he would
be murdered at night. He sought an
asylum with a friend near his home
and saw men walking around in the
dark watching for him. The next
morning he discovered on hi3 gate a
miniature cofiin, upon which was a
heart painted In black, a bullet hang

blood, his name upon the lid and with
in it a Winchester bullet with a pa

whose brother was recently murdered
to return there.
Later in the day a crowd of white
bulldozers sought Judge Dcla aad
tried to force him to resign the post
office in favor of a white man named
Benaey, saying Dolt should not bold
tbe postoffice underany eircumetaBcea
