civic crown the citizen who saved tho life
of a fellow-being. Yesterday Richmond
paid civic honors worthy of the occasion
to the remains of one who did more than
this, for he lost his own life iv a daring
and devoted but vain effort to rescue a
friend from death when every chance was I
against him. The story of Capt. Samuel
Holder Hikes deserves to be written iv
letters of gold, and perpetuated in a monu
ment of time-enduring brass.
It is brief, but all tho move brilliant on
that account. Young Ross was in the
same apartment with him in the Spots- I
wood. Captain Ilices did not awake till
the smoke had almost filled and choked up
ths narrow passages and stairways of the
hotel. Of course, his first thought was to I
save himself; and he had forced his way
through the suffocating smoke, and reached
(he open air of the street, and safety; wheu I
he suddenly bethought himself of hia friend
who was in the same room with him in a I
He endeavored to get assistance to go I
back for him, but failing, despite the en
treaties of those outside, who felt it to be I
certain death, he rushed back into the I
burning building to save young Ross or
dio with him; and thus heroically and
The Rev. Mr. Edwards, in his oration
over tho dead body of this bravo young
man at the church yesterday evening,
truthfully aud eloquently said :
Pocy has woven the garlands erf immortal
ity around less heroic deeds than that per- I
formed by our brave and noble brother. Fie- J
tion and dramatic literature perpetuate names,
even, if they were real, less entitled to distinc
tion on the honored scroll of fame, than tbat
of Samuel Holder Hines. Eloquence, in high
wrought eulogy, baa sought, in fervid and
glowing strains, to render imperishable the
deeds of stateamon and military chieftains and
philanthropists, and even of martyrs, not more
entitled to live in the annals of literature, and
eloquence, and song, than the deed of calm,
quiet and courageous friendship in which tbe
subject of this solemnity sacrificed hia life.
The great heart of Richmond beat with
but one throb at the recital of this deed ;
and yestertlay, such honors were paid to
his remains as admiration for great and no- ;
ble actions ever prompts a chivalrous peo
ple to accord to those who have won them
worthily. The church on Broad street was j
crowded, while the streets without were
filled with tho people, and the funeral pro
cession was one of the largest and most
imposing of the kind that we have wit
nessed in this city. It was composed in
the main of his brothers of that noble
order, the Knights of Pythias, in carrying
out one of the cardinal principles of which
worthy order, their heroic brother had
The funeral cortege passed down Main
street, to tho solemn music of tho Dead
'March, as the shades of the evening gath
ered over the cily, on its way to the depot;
and the people were gathered on either
side of the street, and attested their grief
by their respectful silence am] the sorrow
fulness of their demeanor.
His remains were taken by the Danville
cars to the little town of Milton, in Cas
well county, North Carolina, where he
first saw the light, and whose history he
has so brilliantly illustrated by his death.
There, in its simple cemetery, will he rest,
and his people will be proud to know that
there is at least one hero buried in their

The War ln Europe.
Caesar always went into winter quarters
but there seems to be no hibernating facili
ties for either of the contestants iv the
mighty strugglo now going on in France.
They are compelled to fight it out on that
lino if it takes all winter, and a sore trial
it is to both of them. The pomp and cir
cumstance of glorious war in the pleasant
month of May is turned into anything
else but a glittering pageant when the
frosts and snows of December freeze the
ithe limbs and check the glowing ardor
even of youth.
As we anticipated, the suffering iv Paris
rom want of fuel is greater oven than that
which ft was thought would be experienced
about this time by famine ; while in the
Jerman camps beyond tho wounded are
reezing to death. It is better, of course,
with the active soldiers, who can keep
hemselves comparatively warm by march
ng and countermarching and fighting ; but
or tho poor wounded, left for hours ou tho
field, and the suffering women aud children
of Paris, this cold spell has awakened in
every human heart the liveliest emotions
of regretful sympathy—regretful because
of our utter inability to do anything for
heir relief. The beautiful trees of Paris
are being cut down to give warmth to its
mothers and little ones, and after the trees
will come the furniture, and then tbe
rouses. Oh, horrid war, by mothers so
eteated, how long must civilization bear
he cruelties of thy barbarous practices ?
Outrages in Cuina.—The Chiuese out
ages at Ti.n-Tsin, at which the Christian
world was horrified not long ago, have
>een followed by similar brutal demonstra
ions against Protestant and Catholic mis
ionaries in other parts of the kingdom.
_t Siu Chow, for example, c Protestaut
Impel was sacked, and several Chinese
converts murdered ; a Catholic mission at
.a Tsuaug shared the same fate, and one
or more chapels between Pekin and Tien
.tin are also reported to have been plun
dered and burned.
Previous to the war, ninety religious
papers were published in Paris.

and on taking his seat, said : "Mr. Clerk,
enter a fine of $100 against Samuel Dodgo,
judge of this court, for being absent at the
hour to which this court adjourned." The

An Insane Woman Makes Fkahful
Use of a Hatchet.—Mrs. Rebecca King,
a rather elderly woman, residing as house
keeper iv tho dwelling of Mr. William
Connor, on Fourth street, Philadelphia, on
Friday evening last attacked that gentle
man with a hatchet while ho was asleep in
his bed, striking him on tho head. Awa
kened by the blow, which was quickly
repeated, he sprang from bed and retreated
to tho yard, tracking his way in blood.—
His assailant first tbre»v tho lamp at him
ami then pnisued, still clutching her wea
pon. Faint already with the loss of blood,
he conld not resist her, and in the yard she |
seized him by the throat and raised the
hatchet for another blow over his head.
But at thia juncture ex-Police Sergeant

They were in their night-clothes. As soon
as the woman was dressed, Pergeant Heiss
took her to the seventh district station
house. Whilo on the way, in answer to a
question, "Why did you attack Mr. Con
nor ?" she said', "The devil told me to do
it," and continued, "I had a big night's
work before tne, and am I did not hit
him in the right place.' She was evident
ly insme. At the station-house she re
mained until tnorring, when she was taken
away by her son, Samuel King, to his
house, No. 944 New Market street.
On Sunday night, as Mr. King and his
wife aud child were asleep in bed, Rebecca
obtained another hatchet, and, proceeding
:o the sleeping apartment, struck her eon
twice ou tbe head, and also inflicted a
wound on her daughter-in-law. !_be was

As many of our manufacturers resumed

understand that most of the factories will com

establishments consume daily over 100,000

market will bo quite animated for some time to j

The inspections of tobacco in this city for
tbe year ending 30th of September, were 23,
--355 hogsheads, being 8,802 hogsheads short of
any year since the close of the war. There
were exported direct lo foreign ports, for the
twelve months ending September 30tb, 10,-
G88.866 pounds-a decrease of 607,387 pounds
of the amount exported in 1867-' B. and an ex
cess of exports in 1808-9, of 2,864,981 pounds.
The direct exports of stems in 1860-70, were
only 18 07U pounds to Rotterdam, against 550,
--813 pounds to Bremen, and 441,466 pounds to
other places, in 1808-..
The registered valuation of tho exports of
tobacco and stems for the years 1869-'7O, to all
foreign ports, was $1,481,809, against $1 055 -

While on the subject of tobacco, and this I
being the month when a great many planters
Rienro the preparation of their crops for
et, we would suggest to them the bu
nco of propr/r attention to tho assorting,
.j .un up, ordering and priiing their tobacco
before shipping it. It is owing to carelessness
on their part that they do not realize their ex
pectations in tbe sales, and, consequently,
make hearty comp'aints against their commis
sion merchants, tho market, etc., while in fact,
the fault is too often with themselves. Tobacco
is not an exception to the general laws of trade
in this respect. A man who thrusts a horse
upon the market in bad condition or "out of
order," does not expect more than half price
and is not usually disappointed. Owing to the
particular nature of tobacco, there is no point
more essential than particularity of order.
Tba tobacco before it is placed in the hogs
beads, should bo straight and well assorted,
each length, quality and color separate and
tied up in neat bundles, with a smooth head
and never over eight leaves to the bundle. Ws
would caution the planter never to put twii
kinds of tobacco in the same hogshead, for nine
times in ten, it will be sold by the inferior flake
in the sale sample. In one lustanco, we havo
seen one bundle of inferior tobacco damage
tbe sale of the hogshead one or two doll ars per
hundredfweight. A safe rule to be observed
by all in prizing, is to expect the most in
different tobacco in the hogshead to turn out
in Ihe sale sample.
Shipping tobacco and lugs should be prized
in order that the hogsheads may net from
1400 to 1600 pounds. Dark working tobacco
should not be prized to net over 1,000 to 1200
pounds. The bright yellow, should be lightly
iressed in It'erccs (sever use boxes) to net I
rom 500 to 600 pounds, or evtn 600 to 700
Bounds, as the law requires 8 pounds to be de
noted from the weight of each package for
