days. It will sustain a weight of 25.0 pounds.
One man can aaoend witb fire baodred pounds
with ease, and can take one thoasand without
any great exertion. It can be worked to great
advantage by three men, one man travelling
on the platform, always being present to load
and unload, the three men thus perta ming
the labor or four men. The apparatus com?
bines'power, tpeod, convenienca and safety.
THE REPORTS or ORDNANCE FRIDAY NIGHT
vere not, as was generally suppose J, from a
ship in distress, but ware occasioned by ne?
groes bursting old shells on Morns' Island.
They are in the habit of gitbering a number
of shells and burying them in tho ground.
They then build a fire over the spot, which
heats the shells through and causes them to
explode. The fragments are gathered up and
sold as "old non." Tue shells exploding one
af tea another in q tick succession, sounds very
much like the rapid tiring of gnus, and lead? to
the belief that a vessel is in distress, and is
firing to attract assistance to her. Measures
should be taken to stop this dangerous amuse?
ment among the negroes.

Thc Hatband of the .Harried Woman
who waa Sloped with Soddenly Kc.
tarns and < o nf ra nt ? the o e stro ycr of
his Happiness and Gets Badly Boat?
en-A Mixed ap Affair-Testimony.
The incidents connected with the late elope?
ment and return of R chard Murphy ara too
fresh in the minds of oar readers to need evon
a mere mention, and we ?ill only sta to by way of
explanation to what follows, that the yoong
worn m witb whom he eloped was the wife of
William Kerr, a sailor, who not long since .vent
oa a cruise.
RETURN OF THE INJURED HUSBAND.
Late Sunday afternoon Wm. Kerr arrived on
the vessel he bad shipped on, and. to his in?
tenso horror, heard of tbe conduct of the wo?
man whom be had vowed to love, cherish and
protact, and bad faithfully kept his vow. Ear?
ly yesterday morning bo went to the house of
Harry May, on Qieen-atreet, where he leal ned
Murphy was. Ace JStine Murphy, be demand?
ed his wife. Words and a fight ensued, dur?
ing which Kerr was badly beaten.
AB BEST OP MURPHY.
Shortly after the affair at May's boase, Kerr
went to Justice Mackey and had a warrant is?
sued for the arrest of Ma- a: d Murphy, charg?
ing them with having committed au aggra?
vated assault and battery upon him. Hts face
certainly bore cvidouces of haviug suffered
severely. Officers Coates and Quinn notified the
accused to oome around to the Detective
Offioo, which they did in a very short time
after receiving the not ice. Justice Mackey here
The testimony was very conflicting, and we
give bolow, substantially, that of eaoh witness:
Harry Mays testified that Kerr came into his
house wi o o Murphy was and demanded bis
wife. He thou challenged Murphy to fight
"fist fight,'* whioh be refused to do, as he also
refused to fight with knives and pistols, as
afterwards requested to do by Kerr, Kerr all
of the time having hts hands in bis pocket.
Suddenly, during the conversation which en?
sued, Kerr drew his pistol and tired at Murphy,
who had struck him, the ball, as wilnees testi?
fied, going through bis hat, (a bole in wbicb he
showed, but it was very much unlike a hole
made by a pistol bail.) Witness, then took
Kerr's pistol away and threw it into fhe back
Mrs. May testified that Kerr had come in
as her husband stated and challenged Murphy
to fight, bnt be refused. Kerr then called her
names and Murphy struck bim, and a general
row ensued. Sbe knew a pistol was fired off
by Kerr, but how many times she was not able
Wm. Kerr testified that be had gone to May's
bouse to eoe Murphy about his wife, and had
challenged bun to fight, but he would not.
Mrs. Kerr then called his wife a bad name and
he retorted, whereupon he was set upon by
Murphy, who beat bim while May held his
arms. He bad a pistol in his pocket, but was
unable to draw it because May held him too
During this testinony Murphy treated the
court with great contempt by muttering threats
against Mr. Jobn A. Moroso, who had volun?
teered as compel for Kerr, and others in the
courtroom, and the Ju uic o ordered him to jail
for contempt of c :nrt But fijding that Mur?
phy could not then turnisb proper security for
his appearance for trial, and would therefore
have to go to jail anyhow, be withdrew the
commitment for contempt, and sent him to jail
in ohargo of Officers Quinn and Levy, in de?
fault of said security. May wau discharged.
After remaining confined an hour or two,
Murphy furnished security and was released.
Daring these proceedings Murphy sued out
a warrant against Kerr, charging bim with
having assaulted him with a deadly weapon.
Justice Minot, who issued the warrant, heard
the evidence, and required bim to give $300
security to appear for trial.
