Row and Then.
Oh lore will make the leal heart ache
That never ached Before;
And meek or merry ey*s 'C-iU masc
With solemn tears rim o'er.
In tears we parted 'enderly,
My love and I lane svne;
And ever more she vowed to be
Mine own, aye mine, all mine !
Sin? O the tree ls blossoming,
But the worm is at tho root;
And many a d rung flower of Spring,
Will never come to fruit.
We meet now in the streets of life;
All gone, th? old sweet charms;
At my side leans a loving wife;
-The young mon of Frankfort do not like
the Prussian conscription, and to evade it are
becoming 8wiss citizens by the thousand.
- They can take out the Swiss naturalization
papers. The only people in the world who
take at all kindly to m?itary conscription are
c the French.
it -There is a great deal of excitement in Rus?
sia in consequence of the discovery of a sect
'?' called the Skoptzi sect, and the arrest of its
leader, Kouzniene Plocine, who is said to be
1 worth several millions. The object of this
sect is the destruction of the human race.
Each member undergoes a horrible mutilation,
whioh is practiced on women as well as on
men. Or?genes, in the fourth century, was the
founder ol' this sect, which is now extremely
- waalthy (it has 400,030,000 francs in its trea
. saxy) and numerous.
-A enri?os disease prevails on the wast
coast of Africa, especially on tho Gaboon,
-which consists in an irresistible inclination to
sleep. Mo pain seems to be experienced; but
ths patient stumbles readily, his step is totter?
ing, Benee of feeling ' ncms to be wanting, and
objects used as a sur rt are giasped very un?
steadily. Ibe consciousness does not seem to
. be diminished, and the breathing and diges?
tion aro normal. When the patient is awaked
:.c 1 ht returns again into a deep sleep in a very
short time. The disease does not yield to any
'. remedies, and generally ends in death. Its
precise character hos not jet been ascertained
l_With spring are rovived in Europe tho ap?
prehensions cf war, which winter bad driven
away. The formidable armaments of the
Tarions powers are doing nothing, and t num?
ber of restless spirits - begin to look round for
causes of quarrel. No one interf?res with
Spain. One advantage at all events of the
revolution bas been to preserve her from the
temptation of wrangling with her neighbors.
The Parliament of the Northern Confederation
of Germany is at work upon financial ques?
tions, but outbursts now and then of opinion
show tbat the national jealousy of dictation

-English soldiers, on the expiration of their
first term of service, have heretofore been in
" ' - dubed to re-enlist, by extra pay, arnon a tin g to

without charge, and by twenty days' marching
money, to enable tbem to return home to

This practice bas been abandoned, on the
ground that the government does not wish to
fill the ranks with old, broken-down veterans,
at ? great expense. It is asserted that it will
be cheaper to buy a new soldier than to pur
chase a bad second-hand article. This item of
o oat of reenlistments ia one of the pe tty savings
-Tjrecommfinded by the new government, and
. -?Will involvfl greater expanse in the end. The
difficulty in Groat Britain has always been to

penny is an inducement to the privates to
behave well; and, besides, it seems cruel, after

either to turn Elm loose on the world, or only I ?
to give bim the same meagre pittance as he
received at the beginning of his career.
-A most extraordinary piece of scandal is
e ontained in the English and Irish papers of j ?
recent date, being nothing less than the elope
ment of the wife of Captain Vivian with the
Marquis of Waterford. The deserted captain
ia a Lord of the Treasury and a member of
-i ^Parliament fbi Truro. Tte lady left her home
one Monday morning, alleging that she intend?
ed to proceed to Brighton to see her mother
and would return the same evening. As, how?
ever, she failed to make her appearance, Cap
? - iain Vivian proceeded to the Victoria station
and there ascertained that the Marquis of
Waterford and Mrs. Vivian bad the previous
morning taken tickets for Paris by way of
Dover, accompanied by a friend. He followed
them to the French capital and soon found the
obj oct of his search at a well-known ho tel. Mrs.
Vivian beard of her husband's arrival
and looked herself np in an inner cham?
ber. Captain Vivian, however, succeeded in ob?
taining assistance and burst open the doors.
. Ho then ascertained that Mrs. Vivian had at?
tempted te commit suicide by swallowing chlo?
roform. Th 3 quantity taken was not, however,
sufficient to cause more than partial insensi?
bility. Captain Vivian is understood to have
implored bis wife to return for the sake of her
children, of whom there are four, bat that she,
peremptorily reused, although her husband
assured her that her escape Should be kept a
profound secret. The lady, however, remain?
ed firm in ber determination not to return to
the shelter of ber home, but pleaded that she
Bight be allowed to retain her youngest child.
This request Captain Vivian declined to com?
ply with, and returned to London without
having encountered the Marquis of Waterford.
. The latter bas.it is belie ved, cause d a communi?
cation to be made to Captain Vivian that whou
tko Jndge Ordinary ot the Divorce Court shal)
have dissolved the legal ties whioh now pre?
vent his marrying Mrs. Vivian, ho will, as a
man ot honor, make her the only compensation
in his power.
TUE BLACKSTONE H O BEOR.
Frightful Tragedy In Phil adelphi a-A
Hypochondriac ax order? als Wife, Son
and Daughter-He uro w hu Himself In
the Delaware-Detalla of the Horrible
The details of the last tragedy in Philadel?
phia, supplied by our Philadelphia exchanges,
are unspeakably revolting. The murder of ?
wife and two almost infant children, and the
suicide of the insane father, constitute a crime
almost without parallel. Tbero waa no motive
and no passion-no jealousy-no drunkenness
-no greed for money-nothing but insanity*
A whole family blotted ont of existence in one
day by tho loss of one human intellect. We copy
the particulars from the Age of Wednesday :
Wc have to reveal to our readers the circum
stancea ol a tragedy so sickening m its details
that the very memory of it causes a shudder.
On M oi. nay," sh ort ly after duiner, Mr. Funs
ton, of the firm of Fu?aron & Blackstone, gilt
frame manufacturera, NJ. 912 Market-street,
received the following brief though awfully aug
. festive telegram from Zelah Lee, of Madison,
"Have received a letter from James that his
wtfe and children are killed, lolegraph im?
Dpon receiving thia intelligence, Mr. Fun
ston waa horror-stricken; the Jamas sDoken
of in the message waa James Sindsley Black?
stone, bis partner, ai?d knowing that his asso
enrn of late, had been doeply melancholy, his
mind b toa me fibed with the worst of fears.
Hurrying to ibo house in whioh Blaokstone
dwolt, Mr. Funston informed Officer Eli F.
Newuam.of tho ninth pobco district, ol'tho
message. The. latter ran to the dwelling. No.
815 J tul son-street, a small thor nigh fare which
runs north from Brown-street, between Twen?
ty-third and Twenty-fourth streets. He tried
the front door, but it did not yield; be rang
the bell, but there came no response; he ran
anrand to ?he rear of the row of dwelling?; and,
leaping over the fence, hurried up to the
kitchen window. The shutters bc lound bow?
ed, but he pulled these apart, raised the sash
and looked in. Wha' a horrible picture greet?
ed him, one so ghastly that tho remembrance
of it will live lon? in his memory. He saw
lying upon the floor a woman with her head
terribly gashed and covered with blood; lying
upon her left were two little ch?dren, with
their features mutilated and their heads rest?
ing upon their dead mother's clothes.
This is the theory of the manner in which
the murder was committed. At an early hour
on Monday morning Mrs. Blackstone got up
from where she was sleeping in one of the
upper chambers, and, dressing herself com?
pletely, went down into the kitchen. Whether
Blackstone went down with her at the time, or
8nbsequoutly, is a question which no mortal
can solve. Procuring her kindling, she emptied
tho crate of the range, placed tho wood
and then put on the coal. While bending over
the range, Blackstone stepped up behind her,
and, raising an axe, which be bad procured,
struck her a terrible blow. The sharp edge of
the instrument mt a frightful gash in the wo?
man's right cheek, and crashed through ber
?aw, almost severing it completely from the
rest of the bony structure of her face. As the
victim raised her head, the murderer again
raised the axe and struck her, tho in?
strument this time burying itself into the
neck, severing the windpipe and chipping the
spinal cotumn. She could make no struggle
-for death must have been too sudden. The
little boy, Lee, may have IUD down when bis
mother did, and have Been the enactment of j
this part of the tragedy, or be may havo been
called from the room above by his mother's
cries. However, he came into the kitchen, and
the murderer catching hts little son, beat bis
brains out with the polo ol the axe. Hoing into
the dining room where bis beauti tul little three
year old daughter lay, ho murdered her by
beating the skull until its bony structure was
After tho tragedy was enacted, the mur?
derer-the husband of the one and tho father
of the two other victims-did not eeek in any
manner to cover up the terrible crime. He
stepped back into the Vitchen, however, and
taking the body of bis wife, still worm and
covered with blood, laid it ont npon tne bare
floor, with the head lying towards the window
opening upon the side alley. Thon taking the
mutilated ho ly of bis son, he stretcLed it out
upon the same' floor, but partly on its face, and.
with his head resting npon the mother's hips.
Then, going into the dining room, he lifted the
bleeding form of his little daughter, whose fea?
tures, although set rigid y in death, woro
a sweet, pleasant smile, and carrying it
into the kitchen, placed it beside tbe form
of the boy. Only in one way did he try to
evade a too hasty disoovery. The current ef I
blood which welled from the gashed throat of ]
bia wife was running towards the kitchen door,
and fearful that it might course through under
tbe door, he rolled np a white table cloth and
laid it across the floor, so that tbe bloody tide
would be stopped. Then going to the sink, he
took a small rag and with the aid of water
cleaned his hands of their red stains. Then
placing upon the sink a boiler which might
have baeu standing in his way, he left the
scene of his fiendish butchery, and putting on
his clothes passed oat the front door, which he
closed and walked down tho street. But the
thoughts of the terrible crime be could not
sffaoe. He acted strangely-like one wbo did not
know what to do-as if his mind was confused.
While passing on in this manner an officer of the
Dintb polies distrust accosted him. He respond?
ed in so unusual aud strange a tone that he
was taken ia custody-the officer believing
him insane. Learning that he was to be taken
to the stati tn, Blackstone broke away from his
rostodians and dashed down street, evading
ill pursuit; on be went, now running, now
walking quickly, until he reached Cbestnut
itreet wharf. The sight of the water did not
itophim, but stepping on to the edge of the
vharf, and before a bane' could be given to his
e-cae, be plunged imo the water, to rise once,
wice, and theo sunk. The morning papers of
.esterday all chronicled tho death, by drown
ng, of a man named "blackstone," but none
bon knew that this act was tho finale to the
nost allocking tragedy that had occurred since
ho Deering family was butchered.
The murderer was born in Brantford, Connoc
icut, in 1832. His wife, Isabella Lee, was born
n Madison, in tb%*jarne State. Their marriage
vas solemnized owihe 2d of D?fern ber, 1857.

The above analysis indicates a Mauurial Superphosphate of Lime of tbe highest grade ordi?
narily found in the American market. Its large amount of Soluble Phosphoric Acid supplies
an active nutriment for ths development and maturity of the fruitage. The Sulphuric, Acid
which it contains, by chemical affinity with the elements of most soils, contribute to .ita Fer?
tilizing Properties. To show its best effects, this Superphosphate should be applied under
and in contact with the Seed, and with a moderately shallow covering of soil.
