-A correspondent of tho London Times has
written to that Journal, pointing out that the
celebrated maxim ol President Lincoln, "not
to swap horses while fording the stream," has
been expressed centuries ago. attributed to
Cyrus the elder, King of Persia, in directing
his troops to take np their several stations,

ates no surprise here, where the circumstances
of her fliting out are well known In certain cir?
cles. The Cuban Junta, it ls said, will have a
special meeting to receive Lieutenant Chau

from the vessel. The expectation seems to be
that this privateer will not only worry Spanish

-One of the most eminent men of the
Church of Scotland, and a very remarkable
pulpit orator, was the Rev. Norman Macleod,
who died on Monday. He entered the Pres?
byterian pulpit In the Parish of Loudoun, Ayr?
shire, in 1838; in 1843 was transferred to Dal
keith, and in 1851 became minister of the
Barony Parish, Glasgow. He was made a
doctor of divinity In 1858, and In 1860 he ac
cepted the post creditor of the now well known,
but then first projected, periodical Good
Words, which was under his management at
the time of hiB death., Dr. Macleod was the
author of several popular novels ot a religl
oas character. As one of the Queen's chap?
lains, he was accustomed to preach at B&.mo
ral every year during the royal residence
there, and hiB relations with her Majesty were
of Intimate friendship. Dr. Macleod'a last
clerical charge was that of St. Columba's.
Glasgow, where many Americans resorted ta
bear him. He was just sixty years of age
when death called him from the scene ol his
labors, having been born at Campbelton, ia
Scotland, in 1812.
-The Gatling guns at West Point are curl
ons looking implements of warfare, bat more
carious still ls the manner of their working.
Aft odd-appearing, bending band of steel is
brought from the ammunition chest and held
Immediately over and in contact with the slit
In the upper part ol the gun. This segment
contains twenty cartridges, and, as the crank
cf the. "coffee mill" is turned, they descend in
due sequence into chambers where they ex
plode. From the many mouths of the gun
shoot forth uninterrupted numbers ol pier
clogly bright flashes oi flame, surrounded by
enwrapping vella of blue smoke, and from the
lower side comes a steady stream cf empty
cartridge shells. When one segment ls ex
haosted it is replaced by mother, and there is
really no limit to the capacity of the gun so
long as the crank Is kept turning. An officer
informs me that they can Are four hundred
and twenty shots a minute ! and, furthermore,
that the prevalent Impression concerning
their delicacy and liability to get out of order
is untrue; that they are easily managed, sim
ply constructed, and good for much service.
-Again ls Nilsson, the Swe dish nightingale
carolling to delighted audience in London after
an American experience o? two years, and the
generally unimpressive Briton considers him?
self perfectly justifled in going music-mad
over the return of the songstress, who ushers
In an operatic Bprlng time. Her first reappear
ance was at Drury Lane Theatre, as Violetta,
in Verdi's "La Treviata," the opera in which
her first brilliant successes were won. Her
entry upon the stage before ber old admirers
was the signal for a hearty English roar of de?
lighted welcome, which, however unmusical
lt might have sounded to Nilsson's practiced
ear, waa no less gratelully received than the
sweet sounds she gave in return. The Lon?
don criticism up on her, which at first 1B a mat
ter of comparisons, is that she has greatly im?
proved in personal appearance and dramatic
power slHce.they last saw her, and acquired a
beauty and quality of tone which she had not
possessed in their previous acquaintance with
her. She carried her audience along as If by
magic, and finding plaudits unequal to an ex?
pression ol their enthusiastic approbation,
they broke Into true Russian wildness of sen?
timent and pelted the fair singer with bou?

The murder of Leonie Andre in New York
by ber husband, Emil Andre, is but a single
addition to a very common class of crimes.
Two years ago the couple came to this coun?
try from France with two children. In his
own country he had been foreman of a
gang of laborers on a railroad, but hoped
lo better his condition here. On the contrary,
unable to speak the language, and falling lil,
among other afflicting diseases being small?
pox, he had to use exceedingly close calcula?
tion in making the ends meet. He worked
some on the Erie road, and took charcoal
lobs in Connecticut, and thereby managed to
sustain his family, and this was not his great?
est trouble. His wife was gay and fond of the
society of the opposite sex, and she formed
the acquaintance of oae Tani?re, who seemed
to please her more than her owu husband.
The latter pleaded and remonstrated, but to
no purpose, and finally he secured a formal
agreement of separation from a French law?
yer, giving him the custody of the children.
He called at her apartments ta get her signa?
ture, but she said it was not worth the paper
lt was written on, and refused. Her obstinacy
maddened him, and pulling out a single-bar.
relied pistol he followed her into the street,
and seizing her at a corner placed the muzzle
against her neck and fired, killing herat once.
The excited bystanders were In favor of hang?
ing him to a lamp-post immediately, but he
was rescued by a policeman, and locked up.
A verdict of murder has since been rendered,
and the murderer committed. The woman re
lused to sign, because wishing to return to
France she was ashamed to do BO without her

At last a private stockholder has begun
proceedings against the Blue Ridge Ring.
There has unquestionably been wholesale
jobbery, and only the high priests of Radi?
calism know what. bas become of the
$1,800,000 of Revenue Bond Scrip. The
effort is now making to compel the Presi?
dent and Directors to account for all the
money that has been received, and to place
the road in tbe hands of a receiver. Does
the City of Charleston intend to become a
party to the snit? As the holder of one mil?
lion dollars of the stock of the Blue Ridge
Railroad, it is directly to the interest ?' ?ae
city to ascertain what ar* liabilities of
the Company: what haB become of the
ocrijy authorized to be Issued for its relief.
At present the citizens are io the dark. All
that they koow is that one million dollars,
involving an annual tax of sixty thousand
dollars, are at stake. Unless the courts inter?
vene the whole of this will be sacrificed, and
the road may, besides, pass into the hands
of, a Ring, who will use it as a means of in?
juring the trade of Charleston. Are the
private stockholders, whose stake is small,
to ao all the fighting ? Prudence, jusUce
and common sense emphatically answer,
No ! The City Council have already called
upon the City .Attorney to report what is
necessary to be done to protect the interests
of the city. That official can surely report
at the next meeting of the City Council ; if
he cannot, let the Council move without
bim. What is needed is, Action ! Action 1
The Liability of Stockholdere In Banka.
Judge Graham has delivered an elaborate
opinion in three cases Involving, the liability
of the stockholders of the Farmers' and Ex?
change Bank, under its charter. This
opinion, as printed by the Courte:; covers
the following points with regard to the
Farmers' and Exchange Bank, and all other
banks acting under the same or a similar
1. That the acts of the Legislature do im?
pose an individual liability on the stockhold?
ers of the bau k.
2. That this liability is confined to those
who owned shares in the bank on the 29th
November, 1860, when it suspended specie
payments, or who had held such shares at
any time within twelve months previous to
3. That this liability is alone for such bills
of the bank as wore actually in issue on the
29th of November, 1860, the date of its sus?
pension and refusal to pay its notes in. cur?
rent coin, and therefore of its fallare.
4. That there is no individual liability on
the part of the stockholders for any bills
issued after the 29tb of November, 1860, the
date upon which the bank failed to pay its
notes, according to their legal obligation, in
5. That those who dealt with xbe bank
while in a state of suspension, did so at their
peril, and are not within the mischief against
which the law intended to provide, by fixing
individual liability upon the corporators.
6. That the burden of proof is upon the
holder of the bill, to sho w that it was issued
and put in circulation by the bank prior to
the 29th November, 1860.
-The income of the City of Columbia is
$30,000 or $40,000 a year more than its ex?
penses; yet the six per cent, bonds of the
city are sold at auction at 65a66i. They
are dirt cheap at that price, but the public
evidently have no confidence in a Radical
ridden community. The same feeling con?
trols the price of State securities. With an
honest government, State bonds would sell
at eighty or ninety. They now hang be?
tween thirty and forty.
-What a flutter there will be if, as our spe?
cial dispatches indicate, a fall disclosure is
made of all the receipts and payments by
the State for the last two years. That will
show where the money goes to, and will dis?
prove the charge that the financial embar?
rassments of the State are caused by the
failure of the people to pay the taxes
-The public are curious to koow what is
the cost of the Eu-Elux prosecutions ia
Sooth Carolina, and how much was paid to
witnesses and spies. Special telegrams to
THE NEWS assert that the United States
Court for Arkansas cost a quarter of a mil?
lion dollars for a single term. Can South
Carolina beat that ?
-Any misstatement made by the re?
porters and correspondents of THE NEWS
will be corrected, If application be made to
this office. Otherwise no notice will be
taken of the complaint, whatever its nature.

nesota and the Texas Democrats declared

AMERICANISMS; THU ENGLISH OF THE OLD
WORLD. By M. Scheie de Vere, LL. D., Pro?
fessor "ol Modern Languages in the Univer?
sity of Virginia. New York : Charles Scrib?
ner* Co. 1872. Pp. C95. Price $3 50.
Professor De Vere has given us a very curi?
ous and interesting book. In a growing coun?
try like ours, where ideas, manners and even
populations ore constantly shifting to a greater
or less degree, language, of course, must like?
wise conform to the universal law of change
lar more readily than in the fixed communi?
ties of the Old'World. For this reason any
work treating of the distinctive traits of
American talk must necessarily, ia a certaia
sense, lack completeness. But in the book be?
fore us we have all that could be expected
from a keen, observant and pains-taking phil?
ologist, who has evidently brought to his re?
searches a zeal only equalled by his thorough
training and rare industry. Professor De Vere
examlnep, successively, the Americanisms
which have been eugrafted upon our language
by the Indians, the Dutchman, the French?
man, the Spaniard, the German, the negro,
and John Chinaman. The remainder ol his
volume is devoted mainly to the discussion of
the peculiarities of American dialect, which
owe their origin to the great West, to the
church, to politics and to trade. Oar slang
afloat and on the rail is also treated Ia sepa?
rate chapters. It may be remembered that
Mr. Marcy, wheo Secretary of State, issued a
circular to the official representatives of the
United States in foreign countries requiring
them to make all communications to his de?
partment la the American language. No
scholar who would keep In view the difler
onces between that "American language" and
the good old "King's English," can afford
to be without Proiessor De Vere's admirable

Here we have an old-fashioned love story,
arranged as a drama, and told in spirited
blank verse. The tinted paper and beautifully
clear print of the Riverside press, In which

Mr FARM OF EDGEWOOD, A Country Book.
By the author of "??verles of a Bachelor.'
New. Yor?f .. aorioner, Armstrong & Co. 1872.
TV. ai?. Price $1 25.
A pleasant running record of the experience
of an enthusiastic lover of country life, who
bought a hundred acre farm somewhere down
East, "to ditermine by actual experiment if
"farm lands were simply a cost and an annoy
"ance to any one who would not wholly fore?
swear books, enter the mud trenches valor?
ously, and take the pig by the ears with his
"own hands." After a lull, (air and earnest
trial of the larm, its pleasures, its pains and
its profits, Its helps and its hindrances, the
author, Mr. Donald G. Mitchell, is confirmed
In his convictions that, of ali occupations, the
farmer's is the happiest, the most wholesome,
and the most useful.
