Boiler Explosion and Loss of Life.
The foundry works of John F. Tay
Ir & Co.-the PI oanix Iron works
were somewh. t de,troyed by one of
tle most terrible explosions that ever
startled this city.
At about 10 o'clock, a heavy report
like the sound of distant cannon, was
beard throughot the city, but in these
days of martial law excited no espe
e11l apprehensions ; but soon the air
filled *ith rumors of a most terriflo
explosion. and our energetio reporter
was soon among the ruins of the fine
building known as the Phoenix Iron
L3 ing in Hazel street was the mu

a young man of about sixteen years of
age, who was employed as fireman at
the time of the acident. We under.
stand that young Barton was a steady
industrious and honest laborer, whose
assiduity commended him to the con
fidence of his emplojers.
This wai, fortunately, tbo only

shows how narrow was the escapo.

WAsHINGTON, Fidsy, March 22.
The Untited States Supreme Court
was occupied to-daty in hearing the
argument of Messrs. Johnson and
St.anber'y in favor of a motion of writs
of' habeas corpus and certiorari in the
ease of T. Jefferson (roer, one of thec
Ku Klux prisonors, whom the United
States Circuit (Court at Colunmbia had
refuased to dlischtargo upon a writ of'
hasbeas corpus. In this way the coun
sel for the prisoners, having failed in
their appeal fromt the decision of the
Circuit Court. in the matter of quash
iag the indictment, hoped still to
bring the enforcement or Ku Klux
law before the Supremne Court upon
The motion was opposed by Attor

General Braistow on grounds similar

in thtat of Avery', that the motion will

will be delivered on Monday, to

/ Our Judicial Status.
By an Act of the late Logislature,
,his County has been transferrod
rrom the fourth to the sixth Circuit.
rho latter Circuit is now composed,
since the pas.ago of th i Act refor red
to, of the Counties of Yolk, Lanous.
ter, Cheter, and Fairfield, with iT. J.
Mckey, as Presiding Judge.
Whether we will be bot tfitted by
this hango or not,, we are scurcely
prepared to say. \a a matter of c6un
Venience, it is ce:tainly desirable
both for the Judge and Solicitur.
Judge Mackay comes to us with a
doubtful and unenviable record, but
may prove acceptable as a Judge.
The last number of the Chester Re
porter notices hii quite favorably.
According to that p;aper, he has ex
presned himself very decidedly in re
gard to the recent arbitrary and Ille
gal arrests made by the military in
the tipper counties, ind has intimuted
his intention of instructing the Grand
Juries, in the Counties where the.o
arrests have been made, to indict te
the U. S. oflicer wi6- have acted
with"ut thi'lproper authority.
If Judge Dlackey will take a stand
of this charaotor, and maintain it,
thereby evinciig a proper tegird for
the liberties of the pbople, and a
spirit to protect them from oppres
aion, we are satisfied lie will recoive
that hupport to whioh a judicial offi
cer, not uated by proper noti0ea in the
disohurgo ot his duties, is always en
In a former issue of this paper,.we
reflected very severely on Judge
Mackey's past eareer, for which we
contend we had just grounds, but ii
his course on the Bevnch shows that he
fully appreciates the necessit ies and
grievances of thle people nt large', andl
iln an1 official way relieves their watt
and burdens as far as h0 cn, we will
not ho so unju%t and ungenerous as toi
withhold from him that end orsemiot
that lhe would thereby deserre. Leit

A Soul Outside the Body.
There has- always been some speop
lotion onl the question whether a
man's soul actually leaves his body
during,aleep or at any other time be
fore death, but evidence to solve mys
terious questions is rare. There is a
story told in Louisville, however, of
a merchant of that city, who, while
traveling on a sleeping oar in MisAil
sippi, had a vivid experience as of
visiting big bome and seeing his wife
and children asleep,and noticing that
the eight day family. clock had run
down, he wound it up and set it going.
Ile then returned to his berth, which
was rattling alone at the rate of forty
miles an hour, in a hleeping car saw
hi. own body distinctly, and resumed
his place within.its wcll fitting enease
ment. Oi writing to his wife about
it, lie learned that the clook 4ad been
ysteriously wound up on the night
of his i.piritual iimaai:,tion.
