The Clarion: The Senate yesterday,
by a yote of 20 to 17, passed House
bill No. 3& introduced by Mr. Madi
son of Noxnbee which is as follows:
An act to repeal motion 1369, chapter 51 of
tne (tensed node or isbu. entitled an ct
in relation tooontracts to tnoumlier grow
Section 1. Be it enacted by the Legis
lature of the State of Ilirxbmippi, That sec
tion 13541, chapter 51, Revised Code of
1RS0 of the Htate of Mississippi, be and
the same is hereby repealed.
Section 2. Be ii further enacted, That
this act shall be in force and effect
from and after tho first day of July,
1 X8, aid the crop grown in the vear

Tho section referred to made it law
ful for anyone to encumber any crop
to be grown within fifteen months
from date of deed of trust. Said sec
tion being repealed, the common law
provisions on that subject are again in
full force and effect. It will hence
forth only bo lawful to encumber
crops that are actually growing or
grown at dato of mortgage, and not
such as are to be grown.
A darky Yonn Cllrl,
Hhthoit, Mich., March 4. A slen
der, bright-eyed young girl of seven
teen or eighteen years, hanging tightly
to a burly fellow and ordering him
alxut, attracted the attention of the
people- abont the Michigan Central
dejxt yesterday. The young woman
was Hattie McKay, daughter of Sheriff
McKay of Tuscola county. She was
on her way to Jackson prison, and had
in her costodv Samuel Woodman, who
was sentenced from Tuscola county for
one year for assaulting his wife with a
carving knife. The sheriff is very sick
at home, and Hattie, since his illness,
has taken op and down so much of his
business as it is possible for a woman
to do. When asked if she was not
afraid to bring soch a strong and des
perate man to prison, she replied: "O,
indeed no. I don't handcuff him, but
I have a revolver in my pocket, and I
keep him in light all the time. If he
was to start to get away from me I
would call out for help, and some of
the men on the train would help me."
A Protbytei-lan Proclamation.
Dublin, March 4. Nothing more of
an acrimonious character ought now
to be said about the participation of
the Catholic clergy in the discussion
of the Irish crisis, after this proclama
tion of the moderator of the Irish
General Presbyterian Assembly, the
Kev. James W. Whigham: "f have
received requisitions from the Presby
terians asking me to call a special
meeting of the General Assembly to
consider tho present serious state of
the country and the duty of the as
sembly in relation thereto." 1 hereby
summon a special meeting of the
General Assembly of the Presbyterian
Church of Ireland at the May Street
chnrch, Belfast, Ireland, on Tuesday,

Tar Right to Examine Publlr
Makioii, Isi., March 4. A case in
volving t he right of examination of the
books and piiterB in the offices of
county recorders of Indiana has been
decided here. A firm of abstracters,
some time ago, were denied access to
the county records for the purpose of
copying the same or making notes
thereof, on the ground that the
straeters had no interest in the proper
ties described further than to nse tbj
information thus derived as a cois
modity for simulation, which was
usuiMition of the rights and emolu
ment of the recorder. The nluinti tb

Hamaker, asking the co'irt for a wrt
of mandamus to compel the dcfendait
to grant the plaintitls the ri;:ht to i
spect and examine the records in tlie
recorder's office, and to take nous
from the same for reference. Judre
Lotz, in his ruling, holds that any ie
interested in the records of a court y
has a right to examine the same ail
to make such memoranda as ho wishes;
that for this iurose it was t

Ths New York Morning Journal has
two women on its staff, one of whom
furnishes the stories and the other toe !
society and fashion gossip, but they i
are never assigned to promiscuous
duty as are the men. The Telegram
accepts the services of a number of
women, who contribute matter relat

is their allotment, and none of them
have the right ff staff privileges. The

no rudeness, but met with kindness

Nkw York, March 4. Thronsw of
the faithful crowded around St.
Patrick's Cathedral this morning,
anxious to secure admission to witness
tho Ceremonies attending the confer
ring of the pallium upon Archbishop
Corrigan, which will install him at the
head of the See of New York. This
includes the dioceses of Brooklyn,
Buffalo, Newark. Trenton, Rochester
andOgdcnshtirg. Admission was gained
by ticket. Parties who had no ticket
were not allowed in, and were turned
away. A squad of police preserved
order outside the cathedral. 10 very
church in tho neighboring -cities was
represented. Promptly at 1 o'clock
the services were commenced. Cardinal-elect
Gibbons of Baltimore and
Bishops Mclnerny, (Vmroy and Me
Mahou, Monsignor Doane and Dr.
O'Connell occupied wits within the
chancel rail, on the right side of the
altar. The latter was plainly decorated
with a few flowers, just sufficient to set
off the richness of the Italian marble,
of which it is made. The priests and
alcolytes led the procession, Arch
bishop Corrigan, arraved in golden
robes and attended by Monsignors
Preston and Quinn, following. They
marched down the aisle and up
through the center aisle to the chancel
rail, whero the clergymen divided,
taking seats on either side, the Arch
bishop, with Monsigiuirs Preston and
Quinn, advancing to the altar, where
the former kissed the cross presented
to him by Archbishop F.lder, the cele
brant of the pontifical mass ami the
custodian of tlio pallium. A choir of
150 boys sang the "Te Deum," after
which the mass was lommenced.

ICOBBISPONDIXCl Of THI APPB1L.I
Colombia, Tbnn , March 4. There
is a disposition on the part of some
nai row-minded men to question the
Democracy of a'l who sustain tbe
Blair educational bill. This is a great
mistake, aid if they persist in it they
will injure tbe Democratic parly t
some extent, but they wilt irjure
themselves to a much greater extent.
My opinion is that a large m. j riiy of
the Democia's of Tennessee sustain
the Blair educational bill. It may,
and perhaps doep, need amendment
in some particulars, but tbe people
favor the passage of such a bill, and
woe be to tbe politician who opposes
it. This country is waking up to the
importance and absolute necessity of
public schools. I have befre me
some speeches on that subject mads
in this county, extiaots from which I
will send you hereafter, which present
the subject in a new acd striking light.
Tbe fact thrt the Appeal has sus
tained the Blair bill is ationg proof
that it is a sound Demrcia'ic measuie.
This is tbe great stock county of
Tennessee, and it is very interesting to
ba here on the day cf a stock show,
euch at the first Monday in April will
be. This is the only town of any size
in Middle Tennessee that has never
had the cholera or any other epidemic.
It has also waterworks, situated on a
high hill overlooking the town, aod
water can be carried by pipes over the
tops of Ihe highest bouses in thetown.
This is a great advantage in a manu
facturing point of view. Many of tbe
distinguished citizens of Memphis
once lived here. Bishop James H,
Otey, Gen. Gideon J. Pillow, Samuel
P. Walker, Knox Walker, Walter
Coleman, Wm. Coleman aod George

Trouble an tbe Mexican Border.
Nkw York, March 4. A Galveston
special says: A startling report lias
just been'received here from Carrizo,
a town just sixty miles below Laredo,
on the Rio Grando river. AU able
bodied citizens are under arms resist
ing an attack from Mexican bandits.
A sheep herder from a ranch near Car
rizo arrived in that town yesterday
morning in a state of great excite
ment, claiming that he bad tho night
before been a prisoner in the hands of
about fifty Mexican bandits who were
making preparations to raid and plun
der the town of Carrizo. Tho herder
said that the bandits were all heavily
armed and well mounted, and that
their attack could bo expected any
moment. Hence the precaution of
the citizens, who are prepared to give
them a warm reception. As Company
F, Nineteenth' Infantry, are en route
from Ringgold burracks to Laredo, it
must te near there by this time, and
it is likely they will take a band
against the bandits should they make
the attack. Much interest is mani
fested here for later intelligence,

Chinese Lravliic California for
El Paso, Tnx.,Miroh 4. In the last
few davs a large number of Chinese
from California have passed through
El Paso on their way to New Orleans
and Texas cities. Many of them are
also locating in the Territorial towns
of New Mexico and Arizona. San
Francisco is represented as swarming
with Mongolians who have been
driven out of Oregon and Washington
Territory, and the pressure, it is
claimed, is being relieved by the "Six
Companies" shipping ' them East,
where the antagonism against the
Chinese is not so strong as on the
Pacific slope. This influx, however,
into the Territories of Arizona and
New Mexico has aroused the latent
antagonism there, and anti-Chinese
leagues have already been organized
at Socorro and othej- towns in New
Mexico, and at Tucson and Tomb
stone in Arizona, all of which places
are suffering from a heavy increase in
their Chinese population, and which
may lead to their violent eviction, as
