-The London Times tells the story of an
old "Tichborne case" which happended three
-hamlred years ago in France. Martin Guerre
' married at the age of eleven, and after living
with bis wi:"e ten years-during which period
' they had one child-he ran away. At thc end
of eight years a man appeared, whose claim to
the long-lost Martin was at once acknowledged
by the. truant's wlie and the rest of the family.
Por three years there was no question of the
Identity of the new-comer with the errant hus?
band, and when finally it was disputed, the
wife and many cf ihe relatives affirmed lt.
Two trials took place, in which the conflict of
evidence was. remarkable, Atty witnessed on
each side giving contradictory testimony.
The case was determined by the appearance
of the real Martin, of whom the impostor had
been an intimate associate during a long cam?
paign. The rogue, who had thus betrayed his
friend's confidence, was condemned to be
banged and burnt.
. -The last batch ol the Tichborne evidence
' to band is interesting. The last witness ex.
amined when the mall left was Hr. Locock
Webb, the chancery bank ter, who drew the
original "bin" for the claimant. This witness
said the claimant exhibited a "perfect knowl?
edge" of the contents of several deeds relating
to the estate; but, with regard to the name of
the vessel which picked him up at sea and
conveyed him to Melbourne, there was some
uncertainty. The claimant "thought" it was
the Osprey, and no name was mentioned in
the bill. The witness said, in reply to a re?
mark of the ohlel Justice, that the case could
haye been settled in a month in chancery.
The chief justice strongly denounced the con?
duct of an attorney engaged in the case, who
tad printed and circulated a large number of
affidavits which had been filed on behalf of
the plaintiff. They contained a description of
marks and peculiarities by wblch the claimant
bad been, it was said, Identified by many per?
sons. The chief justice said this was "scan?
-The "sUver Btreak of sea" between Dover
and Calais still troubles the travelling English?
man and the excursive Frenchman. The
latest proposition is to IUD a line of ferry
boa's, similar in,thelr general features to
plying between this city and Brooklyn i
Jersey shore, from Dover to Calais. Tb
ls to consist of three large steamers, o
which Is always to be kept In reserve.
Bteamers are to be four hundred and flit
in length, fifty feet wide at the watet
thirty-two feet in depth from deck to bo
and propelled by paddle-wheels Atty fe
diameter. They are to be driven by en
amounting to seven thousand horse pi
The two wheels are to be independei
their action, so that the vessel may be ti
about or brought alongside of a
easily. On the lower deck double lin
rails will be laid, each line capable of ho
fifteen railway cars. The passage is t
made in between seventy and ninety min
Six trips are to be made each way dail
which it is thought some two thousand pa
gers and two thousand tons of goods ci
transported every day. It is estimated
the three steamers will cost $2,000,000,
to enable them to land on the French co
new dock will have to be built at Calais.
French Government has been asked to
this dock, to grant an annual subBldy of i

that this line can be made ready for us

An Unjust Judge.
The address of Judge Bond to the coi
sing Ku-Klux prisoners, printed elsewt
is both unjust and unbecoming. It is
tomary for a judge to show to a prisoner
gravity of the crime for which be has I
convicted ; but, even in these days of poli!
judgeships, it is a monstrous wrong whi
high judicial officer sullies the ermine
dishonors himself by wantonly malignity
people whom his forefathers, at least,
Bpected and understood.
We Hay, once and for ali, that the cri
revealed in the course of the Ku-Klux tr
are horrible and revolting, in the extre
and cannot find any justification orexcns*
the wrong-doing ef the State Governm
and its officials. Judge Bond tells us t
Ku-Kluxism, or Lynch Law, is, in some cai
justifiable. He says that, "in any other par
"the United States" the citizen "upon wh
"such outrages were perpetrated, Btu og
"madness by the insult to his manho
"would be swift to follow the wrong-d
"to the end of the world to make bim atc
"for it." Io other words, circumstances rr
arise which warrant the individual in taki
tbe law into bis own bands. Thia is the dec
ration of Judge Bond ; and the secret orga
zation formed in the upper part of the S ts
contemplated nothing more than his wot
would cover. If we understand its pl
aright, it proposed to punish those gui!
persons whom the courts, for political re
sons, declined to touch. It did not sanctti
sr encourage the disgusting deeds which ba
seen described in the United States Com
These deeds are regarded witb abborren
ind loathing by every intelligent citizen
.he State. The culprits are, as JuJge*Boi
idmits, in a state of deplorable ignoranc
ind the responsibility for this ignorant
lie endeavors to fasten upon tbe Democrat
af South Carolina. While he recognizes tl
callousness and depravity of the prisoner
who speak of "a brutal and unprovoke
" murder, done by themselves, with as litt
" apparent abhorrence as they would relat
"the incidents of a picnic," be lends a wil
ing ear to their excuse that they were force
into the Klans by the men of property, " wo
"held them in abject slavery." Buttbetrut
is mightier than Judge Bond's partisan rh?
torie All the sleuth hounds ol the Govert
ment, all their soldiery, ail their spies an
informers, all their convenient witnesses
have uot succeeded* in connecting bali
dozen respectable citizens With the whir,
pings and ravisbings In which his jordlcia
aonl delights. Scores, nay! -hundreds, c
citizens, of high and low degree, were or
rested, but not more than two or tbree men
of even moderate prominence, have, to on
knowledge, been tried and convicted. Th
Court was anxious to seize the leading mei
of tbe St lite,? whom the Radical organs de
eldred to be at the bead of the Kn-Klu:
Klan. They have not been found. And tbi
reascif is, that none other than the most;ig
norant and .besotted of the whites of tb<
mountain districts had any part in the act;
irbicb Judge Bond describes. The respecta?
rte citizens of the Stale are to blame foi
forming a secret political organization, un
ler the cloak of which ignorant men have
committed crimes which bring a blush to
rivery honest cheek. But the founders of
the organization, whoever they were, are
not gnilty of these crimes, and detest them
nore earnestly than a partisan Judge can
Io. The outrages were confined to counties
where the class of ignorant whites was nu?
merically strong. In the low country not one
ict of Ku-KIuxism bas been committed. Bat
n the border-districts the men of " deplora
1 ble ignorance " could not be restrained,
sven, if their infamous behavior was general
y known. The attempt was made and it
From Judge Bond we expected nothing
jut rancor and abuse, and we are not dis?
jointed in his acts or in bis words. He
is playing for high stakes, and, if lhere is
.my gratitude in;, Presidents, these Ku-Klux
trials will briDg bim a rich and speedy re?
ward. Others of his race, less worldly wise,
bave been content in the possession of the
?steem and respect of their countrymen. To
this old-fashioned reward of a pure and
honorable life, Judge Bond, we fear, would
The Modern Novel.
It is not too much to say that the modern
lovel is the form of literary art through
vhich the creative faculty bas done tbe most
'or the delight and instruction of mankind.
The great epics-the Iliad, the Bible, and
be Nibelungen-have, of course, in both re?
gards, teld great places in literature. Tra?
gedy was an important element in the daily
ile as well as in the civilization of the
athenians. The English and German
1 ram a 3 are important facts in the histo?
ries of those races. The essays of the
ast century exercised a large influence
apon that era, and in all times tbe lyric
nose has touched the hearts and swayed the
will of mankind. But DO one of these forms
>f art, regarded aa the means of pleasing or
>f teaching men, stands on the same level
is the modern novel of the English type,
and the reason is not far to seek. It hes in
the principle that man is the object Of na?
tore, that most intejests man, and that in?
terest and sympathy among men are in the
ratio of their similarity. The gods and he?
roes of the epos are too far from ns, and
their story is too grand to be entirely plea?
surable. The passions of classic tragedy
are entirely out of the circle of to-day's ex?
perience. The fierce curses and agonies of
Prometheus on his rock, and the awful re?
morse of JEdipus, make us shudder and
turn aside. The modern drama, powerful
as it is, is cramped still by the unities and
the necessities of the stage. Lyric poetry,
to borrow the metaphor of its great master,
is only a bee that skims along ami sips its
delicious honey from the flowers of life. The
essay is comparatively feeble, because it is
simply didactic. It is the novel which is
the great drama of our every-day life. There
move men and women like to ourselves. It
portrays the passions, the cares.the joys that
make np the life of every one of us. The
great problems of the world, the misfortunes
of virtue, the successes of vice, the misery
of hope, the insufficiency, of fruition, the
longiogs for happiness, the 6ensenof insecu?
rity which darken it when present, the grim
spectre of death ever present in the back?
ground, all appear in this wonderful panorama
aa they appear to ns. And on this scene,
sexual love asserts itself, as it does in real
life, as the central fact of society. It is no
wonder, then, that the novel furnishes to all
conditions of men the greatest part of their
literary pleasure, aod ft very large parL of
their moral teaching. Which of us is not
wiser and happier for the "Newcomes,'
"Vanity Fair," and "Esmond." It is be?
cause of thiB significance of the novel that i
new one by so ?kilful a worker a3 George
Eliot is an important literary event. The
chance that we may, in the coming year,
have a pleasure such as that we had in
Adam Bede, the Mill on the Floss, Romola |
or Felix Holt, is one by which we will all lay
some store. It is impossible here to show
with any particularity, by an examination of |
the works mentioned, what hopes they
justify for the future. It is enough to say,
in a general way, ' that they are earnest of a
degree of power not found in any novel eince
Thackeray ceased to write.
Only six chapters of Middlemarch have
thus far appeared. The scene is laid at the
country seat of Mr. Brooke, with whom re
Bide bis pretty nieces, Dorothea and Celia
Brooke. Dorothea is fail of Berious, we may
say, grand views of life, and prefers to Sir
John Cbeltam the neighborly squire, a cler?
gyman of fifty years, Mr. Cas aub OD, who is
engaged upon a great theological work, and
who talks and writes even ol the passion of |
love in a very rhetorical way. In the sixth
chapter a Mrs. Cadwallader appears, who is
matter-of-fact, clever, of Incisive speech-in?
deed, very mach of an educated Mrs. Poyser.
As lar as it goes, the work is well done. The
equire, although be basBpoken bot little, isa
skilfully drawn specimen of the bucolic type.
The enthusiasms of Dorothea are well brought
out, and Mrs. Cadwallader has only to keep
her pace to give us mach pleasure. Cosan?
bonis an unnatural prig, and the surrender
to bim of Dorothea would be aggravating .in
the extreme if the reader did not see in the
act the seed of the punishment that awaits
her for it- There is, on the whole, nothing
in these six chapters which makes us fear
that George Eliot's band has lost its cunning,
or doubt that in Middlemarch onr readers
have mach pleasure in store.
PERHAPS the Northern newspapers which
have been chuckling over the statement that
the residence of the late John C. Calhoun
had been bought by "a respectable colored
"man" will now be enterprising enough to
tell the truth, which is, that the purchaser of J
Fort Hill was Colonel Clemson, the son in
law of Mr. Calhoun. As trese presses have
bad the benefit of the falsehood, they may as
well make the most of the contradiction.
WIN TE B-PE O O F SYSTEMS.
Tbtck boote and flannels are necessary tunis
season, but tbe Unman frame requites something
more than these to renner lt winter-proof. The
Inner man, as weil as the outer surface of the
body, must be protected. The raw, moist, chilly
winds which prevail at this season transpierce
the warmest clothing, and are apt to effect the
health unfavorably, both through the pores and
the respiratory organ?. The tnrest way to avert
the evil ls to strengthen the internal machine,
and thUB enable it to repel the devitalizing in?
fluence of unwholesome weather. Enrich the
blood, gently stimulate the circulation, regulate
the bowels, invigorate the stomach, tone the
liver, and brace the nerves with HOSTETTER'S
STOMACH BITTERS, and no condition of the at?
mosphere, however Inclement, no variation of th?
barometer or thermometer, however sudden, wi
have power to disorder the system thus fortified
la advance, and put in perfect working order.
Damp and cold, acting upon a sensitive or feeble
organization, may produce consumption, dip
therla, neuralgia, rheumatism, dyspepsia, liver
complaint, low nervous fever, or intermittent
fever; the importance of rendering the system im?
pervious to these two destiuctive elements is
therefore obvious. Persons in delicate health, or
who a eat all liable to be injuriously effected by
atmospheric Influences, should take the B1TIEKS
dally throughout the winter and Fpiing. Jn lh i
way dangerous diseases may be waned orr, and
a condition of perfect health preserved by indi?
viduals of comparatively feeble physique, while
those more robust, who scoff at precautions, are
suuVrlng the penalty of their recklessness tn hos?
pitals and sick rooms. JanS-mwf3Dto
