How We Get the War News.
Tlio prcBS dipatthc from Europe
to New York during the last four
week numbered 100,000 words. New
York litis been better pouted on the
is,uo of the wuroncli duy, than Lon
don, Paris or Berlin. These dispatch
es have utmost wholly been sent by a
single . cable, full one-third ' of the
whole to a singlo daily popcr, and
with marvellous rapidity . and
accuracy. Familiar as we are with
the work of the telegraph, its has been
a marvel to us. To hundreds of thou
sands of minds, the-whole process is
and has been a deep enigma. Hero is
a man sitting in a dark room at
Heart's Content. The ocean cable ter
minutos here. A fine wire attached
thereto is made to surround two small
cores of soft iron. As the electric wave,
produced by a few pieces of copper
and zinc at Valentin, passed through
the wire, these cores became magnetic
enough to move the slightest object.
A-looking-glass, lialf an inch in diam
eter, is fixed on a bar of iron one-tenth
of tin inch square and a half an inch
long. On this tiny gluts a lamp is
made to glare so that its light is re
flected on a tablet on the wall. The
language of the cable is denoted Jy
the shifting of this reflected light from
side to side. Letter by ietter is thus
expressed in this flitting idoirn in ut
ter silence on the wall. There is no
rcccord made by the machine except as
tho patient watcher calls out to a com
rade the translated flashes as they come,
and which he records. It seems like
a miracle of patience. There is some
thing of awe erecps over us we see the
evidence of a human touch 3,000 miles
away swaying that tide of light.
By such a delicate process us this,
and after being repeated from lino to
line five times before its ultiraato copy
is in New York, have te late great
battles been recorded in daily papers
with great particularity, and sent
throughout tho Union. Nothing like
it has ever before been accomplished.
'Iho enterprise of tho New York Press
has eclipsed that of wealthiest and
ablest presses in Europe. It is charac
teristic of the nation to do iti work
frankly and well.
"Tho fiuling Pa3sion Strong in
The New York Star,, in nn article
on betting, relates the following:
A distinguished physician was call
ed to attend an inveterate better, who
was attacked with a sudden and dan
gerous illness. After a careful diag
nosis, the doctor assured him thut his
his condition was extremely critical,
and his of recovery very doubtful.
Thereat the patient rullied somewhat,
and the following colloquy ensued :
"I'll bet you tt hundred dollars, doc
tor, that I don't die.",
"My dear sir, you may not, but I
think it proper to advise you thut, iu
my opinion, you will."
"Well, doctor, if I die will I, 2 t0
"I hope so, sir."
"Will I be an angel?"
"Will I have wings?"
"I presume bo, sir."
"Well, now, doctor, when you die
will you go to heaven and be an an
"I trust so, sir."
"And will you have wings?"
"Yes, I suppose I will."
"Well, then, doctor, I'll bet you a
hundred dollars that I'll outfly you."
The man died ; but the doctor, who
has not taken the bet yet, is still liv
ing. If, os some thcroisu hold, wo
take with us into tho next world the
eaiuo propensities wo have in this, wo
have no doubt that all tho betting
young Amerieans.and old ones,too,who
read this, will, in duo time, be running
round making bets on the flying match
of our deceased sport, whoso ruling
possiou was strong in death.
A Juvenile Sharper.
A few days ago a well-dressed lad,
of pleasing address, and bearing sur
face indications, at least, of honesty,
went to the residences of many of our
proiuiueut citizens, and inquiring in
varibly for the lady of the houje, in a
susccptable manner would Ull how a
number of young men had earnestly
resolved on reforming had forwkn
J ' VLM
in that Faitli let U3 to tlio end,
drinking and smoking r.nd other evil
practire making t;p their minds
jointly to Jivo ft'id endeavor, if possi
ble, to get to be somebody. To en
courage end strengthen this purposo,
the man suld they were trying to get a
little money to rent and l:rnUh a room
where they might meet nt tiijht and
read good books and study, instead ot
spending their timo idly and wickedly
in saloon!", billiard rooms nnd on the
street. Tlss story told in npppnreullv
honest, struight-mrward manner, which
appealed strongly to the heart and
purse of the lailie3--acqmiintaiices or
friends of the Indies approached as
having been called upon and giving
five or ten dollars in behalf of so good
and commendable an object. Severn!
ladies were thus interviewed by this
"modem Saul," of Eitiiini, and con
siderable money giveu him. All nt
once he suddenly disappeared. It
turns nut that intent on his pious work
of reformation he visted tho residence
of a citizeu in the Fourth Wnrd and
the lady not being nt home he "reform
ed" a gold watch from a table and
both he and it ore now missing. We
presume he. wanted that watch to get
iiim is eakly at night to tho.e nice
pleasant rooms which were being fitted
up (in a horn) to which he nnd U
dear compan'iuis, tired of other wick
ed way?, might qtiiet4y retire far from
the haunts of temptation to read and
to pray ! Elmira Gazelle.
Three Mokihs' Repentance.
Tho steamer S , cou .inamkd by
Captain S.j exploded several years ago
with a terrible cllect, and burned to
the Mater's edge.
Captain S. Was blown into the air
alighting near n flouting cotton bale
on which ho floated uninjured, but
was much blackened und mudilcd.
Arriving at h village several miles be
loVi to which' news tf the disaster had
preceded him, lie was accosted by the
editor of the village newspaper, with
whom he was well . acquainted, and
eager for an item of news.
"I sav, is the Ss blown up?" '
. "Yes." ,
"Wus Cuptain S. killed?' .
"Xo. I am Captain."
"The thunder ,you are! How high
were you blown ?"
"High enoug:i to think"of every
mean thing I ever did in my life before
I came d -wii."
Tho editor started on a run for his
office. The paper was about going to
press, aii'l, not wishing to omit the
item of intelligence for the next issue,
wrote as follows:
"The steamer S has burst her
boiler, in we learn from Captain H.,
who says ho . v.nfi up long enough to
think of every mean thing he ever did
in hid life before he lit. We suppose
he was tip about throe months."
There are many noble examples of
what girls often perform, when pover
ty holds its meagre mainle over them,
of which the following is an instance :
A Cincinnati press states that three
years ago u po:ir orphan girl applied
and was admitted to set typo for thut
paper. She worked two yours, during
which timo she eurued, besides her
board, about $'J00; and availing her
self of the facilities which tho print
ing office affords, acquiring a good ed
ucation. She is now an n-sociute ed
itress of a popular paper, and is en
gaged, to bo married to one of the
smartest lawyers .in Ohio. Such a
girl is bound to shine and celipso teus
ot thousands who arc educated iu tho
lap of luxury, aud taught all the 'ac
compliarin)ciiU"of the hnardingschool.
Such a wife will be a jewel to her
husband, uu ornament to society and
an honor to her sex aud her country.
A Sihxkiso Dckl with Knive.4.
About sundown on Friday evening
two young men of Alexandria, in or
der to sctilua diiliculty that had aris
en between them, armed themselves
with knives, and accompanied by some
of their re.-speetive fiietnls, repaired to
the grounds around Lockaber, across
the canal locks, where having doffed
their coat-", they fought according to
the rules i:i force in Western Texa
previuii.1 to the war. After a prolong
ed conflict, during which both Were
! cut atid !-!:i-hcl to an extent that f-.tt-:
islicd their frii.:i(is, they were separate d
and carried to surgeons to have their
Vi'ouu.ls dressed. Neither of thnni was
J mortal I j Siurt-.
daro do our dutz as wo understand it."--LINCOLN.
Reviewing the history of its State1, a
newspaper in Virginia recalls a case in
which that insiduoitB kind of evidence
which is slyled "circumstantial," 11 tiled
to rob it man of his life only to leave
the remaining years of that life a prey
to something more cruel than death. In
tho summer nf 1807, about four years
after her marriage, tho wife of John
Sigans, a young innn residing in Tay
lor county, was missing from her home
one morning; nor could nny trace of
her bt found, or any reasonable expla
nation of her absence devised. She had
retired to slumber, as usual, with her
husband nnd infant, on the preceding
night; and her husband, according to
his own steadfast HSsertion,awoke in the
morning to find himself and the babe
sole occupants of the couch. Being un
able to oiler any kind of help towards
the clearing up of the mystery, Siga.is
presently become an object of ominous
snsp'c on, aud upon the testimony ofa
neighbor named Current, was taken be
fore a magistrate for examination.
The "witness" testifieit that on the night
of the alleged disappearance he had
been aroused from bis sleep by the fir
ing of a gun in or near Sigans' house,
followed by A sound like a female cry.
He also testified that ho "believed" a
murder" had been committed, and a
woman's body buried under a heap of
stones near his neighbor's hoiue 1 This
last piece of testimony went for noth
ing, ns the minutest search failed to re
veal nny hidden corpse ; but that about
the gun firing, though insufficient to
liuld the accused in any legal bond,
deepened tho suspicion of the public
agaiust him. .
The unhappy man, despite bis pro
test of innocence, was shunned from
that day forth by nil hi former friends
and neighliors; nnd even Lis relatives,
taking his child 1o their owncare,
trained tho little one to judge and des
pise V', father as his mother's murder
er. Tho boy, as ho grew up to man
hood, actually persecuted his parent
until the latter died ofa broken heart,
and then seemed to share the relief
avowed by hii other kindred at their
riddance from one who had been 4 hor
ror and disgrn.ee to them. In fact, for
no less than forty jenrs, Current's tes
timony was accepted as establishing
the moral certainty of John Sigans'
guilt, really inconsequent as that testi
mony had been ; but at tho end of
nearly half a century from the night of
the w ife's disappearance, .after Sigans
tid Current had both passed away,
Mrs. Siguns herself re-appeared in her
old home! She confessed, says the
Grai'loti fieiilind, that she had never
bee a over, one hundred nii!esi away ;
had fled by night from the side of her
unsuspicious, sleeping husband, to the
protection of another; had changed
her name, andwi.ihed to be as one
dead to' tiiose she had deserted. The
"gun" .heard by Current must .have
been the noise she made in falling upon
tho stoop of her home as she fL'd; and
the "femalo cry" her involuntary ex
clamation of pain and terror. Thus,
upon tho strength of purely circutn
stiintlal ev'denee, and thut so trifling,
an innocent and cru-lly wronged mnn
had been placed umbra ban of excom
munication from ail that is merciful in
life, and executed into n dishonored
grave by the hatred of his own child.
Out on tho l'tiu'iflo Railroad, the
other day, a Kickapwo Indian saw a
locomotive coming down the truck to
ward him at the rate of forty miles an
hour. He thought it was an imported
breed of but!alo, and he was anxious to
secure it so as to tako the pri.o at the
annual exhibition of tho Kick n poo Ag
ricultural Society. So he fastened one
end of of his lasso to his waist belt, aud
w hen the engine got ucur enough, lie
threw tho utilise uieely over the smoke
stack. 1 'crimps it is not necessary,
hut wj may as well relato that the lo
comotive did not stop. Tho engineer
und fireman witnessed tho most suc
cessful attempt to do the flying tra
peze mutli! by tiny Kickapoo Iiuliuu
upon tho plains since the first of last
January. There was uu ubc.riiual fu
neral ul the next station, when the en
gine arrived. The grav was not large,
for they ( lily buried a finall piece of
copper-colored meat tied to a string
an J inclo.-t.'d in a sardine box.

How it FeeJj to bo Shot in Bottle
Experiences of a Soldier.
"There! a blow in iho breast, a tear
ing in tho body, a fall with n loud cry
aud terrible pain ; there I lay, one of
the victims of tho bloody day. My
first sensation was anger at tho blow,
my second an expectation of seeing my
self explode, forjudging by tho sound
of the ball I believed I had a grenade
io-my body ; then came the pain, and
with it helplessness and falling. Oh,
how frightful are those first moments!
Where was I hit? how was I wounded?
I could not stir, saw the bnttalliou dis
appear front sight, and myself alone on
the ground amid the fearful howling
and whistling of balls, w hich were in
cessantly strikir g the earth around me.
With difficulty 1 could turn my head
a little, and saw behind me two soldiers
attending on a third, who was iying on
"Of what happened I can give no
account, except that I called for help
several times as well as I could, for the
pain and burning thirst had the upper
hand. At last both of them ran up to
me, and with joy I recognized the doc
tor aud hospital attendant of my com
pany, 'Where are you wounded ?' is
the first question. I could only point.
My dress was quickly opened, and in
the middle of tho breast, a bloody
wound was found, which the doctor
hastily bound. The balls still con
stantly whizzed round us; one struck
the doctor's helmet, nnd immediately
I felt a violent blow in the left arm.
"Another wound 1 With difficulty I
was turned round, to look for tho out
let of the bullet, but it was still in the
body, near tho spine. At last it was
cutout. 'Is the wound-dangerous?' I
asked. 'I hope not.' 'Pray tell me the
truth.' 'Not'rery dangerous, it is to be
hoped,' anil as be emphasized 'very my
hopes melted. They were going away.
'The wound :n the nrm, doctor.' This,
fortunately, was looked for in vain ; the
ball had merely caused a blue spot and
had sunk into the ground harmlessly.
I extended my hand to the doctor nod
thanked him, ns also the attendant,
whom I commissioned to send word to
"Carelessly it whizzed hnd howled
around me. The doctor had carefully
laid mo on my cloak, with my helmet
firmly on my on my head, in order, in
some measure, to protect me from the
leaden bail. Thus I lay alone with
my own thoughts, amid'tho nios ter
rible! fire, perhaps for an hour and a
half. All my thoughts, as far ns pain
and increasing" weakness allowed, were
fixed on my family. Gradually I got
accustomed to tho danger which sur
roundetl.me, and only when too much
sand Irom tho striking bullets was
thrown on niy body did I remember
my little enviable position,
At last, after long, long waiting, the
sanitary detatchment camo o me."
