LONDON, Jone 5.-Tho iron turret
ehip G lat ton was tested at Portland to*
day. The first shot fired made a hole
in her turret measuring nineteen by
seventeen inohes, lifted the upper plates,
shattered the frame works, and started
the' joints in all direotion. The second
shot made a hole fourteen inohes in
diameter, with thirteen deoimal penetra?
tions, the shot rebounding and falling
on .dook. Neither shot interfered with
the revolutions of the turret. The re?
sult of the trial is considered strongly in
favor of the turret system.

from below and put it out with water

THE WORD NEGRO.-The Richmond
Dispatch thus discourse t h :
Let ns took into tbe origin of the
word. It comes to us direotly from the
Spaniards. They were the first to in?
troduce African slavery upon this conti?
nent and the adjacent islands. The
word hombre negro in Spanish me-ius a
black iQ^Dt snd mujer negra *?? bl^k wo?
man. Los negroes is the masculine plu?
ral, and means "the blacks," including
the entire race-tho same as Los Blancos
moans "the whites," and includes the
whole white race. So negro is a bluck
man in the purest Castillian, and Blanco
is a white man. Now, we have no ob?
jection to being called Blancos or whites,
aud why should you think it degrading
to be called Negros or blacks? In the
South refined white society euphemisti?
cally toned down the roughness ot the
Spanish negro, and also repudiated tbe
insulting Yankee slang of "nigger" and
"darkey," and whenever the black peo?
ple were alluded to or spoken to, they
were invariably addressed as "our peo?
ple." or "the colored people," or "co?
lored folks." Ia the Troy colored gen?
tleman satisfied with our explanation?
By the way, the Spaniards got their
negro from the Latins, who had it niger,
and not from the river Niger, where the
bluck men are found.

Tho Evergieen (Alabama) Observer
Bays: "While Messrs. Choot und Robin?
son, oitizens of this County, were out
cow hunting, near Garland, one day last
week, their attention was attracted by
the curious capers of a squirrel, which
acted as if confused or bewildered. One
of the gentlemen proposed to catch it,
anti they dismounted for that purpose.
In their pursuit of the squirrel they
came across a large rattle-snake, which
they killed, aud just as they did so, the
squirrel, which bad gone up a tree near
by, fell dead ulose to them. There were
no wounds or bruises of any description
found on its body, and the strange part
of the affair is, what killed the squirrel?
Some have a theory that when a snake
charms a bird or animal, if the snake is
killed while it is nnder thu charm, tho
object charmed will die also. Who can
explain it? The geutlemen who wit?
nessed the occurrence are men of un?
doubted truth and veracity."
Herc is a new idea for n fair. Somo
ladies of Boston racked their fancy to
devise something new, by which they
could get money out of the pockets of
the gentlemen attending a certain fair,
and settled on tho following plan: They
bad an apron table aud a neck-tie table.
The neck-ties were made of the same ma?
terials, and matohed the aprons. The
ladies bought the aprons, or the gentle?
men bought them for them, and every
gentloman was informed he must pur?
chase a neok-tie. The neck-tie secured,
he was expeoted to take the lady who
wore the apron to match it, to the ice
cream table, and order ice oream for her
and himself. By this sharp practioe the
aprons were sold, the neck-ties were sold
and the ice cream also disposed of, and
it was all for the benefit of tho ohurch.

THE BLACKVILLE AFFRAY.-One or two
inaccuracies occurred in our report of
the Blackville affray, which occurred on
.Monday evening last. The following is
a corrected account, tuken from the
Coroner's investigation: Sol. Groves,
J. C. Pender and Capt. E. J. Black en?
tered CalifTs bar-room to drink; after
taking a drink together. Capt. Black and
Sol. Groves wont out ia the piazza and
sat down ; a oonversatiou ensued between
them abont politics. After a little talk.
Capt. Blaok called Groves a liar, and told
bim to step out io the street if he wanted
anything. They went out, when Capt.
Black struck Groves in the mouth;
Groves attempted to strike Capt. Black
back, but was held and prevented by
Mr. J. S. Turnor and Mr. Lartigue;
Capt. Blaok thereupon told his BOO, who
was standing near, to go home and get
bil pistol; the boy said bis mother would
not give it to bim; Capt. Black then
started off toward his house and return?
ed in about three-quarters of an hour
with the pistol in bis coat pocket. He
stepped ap to Sol. Groves aud said:
"Now I am ready for you."
Turner, marshal of tbe town, then
went np to prevent tho difficulty, and
said, "I demand tho peace." Captain
Black pulled oat bis pistol and shot Tur?
ner; then cocked bis pistol to shoot So?
lomon Groves, whereupon Frank Groves,
bis son, walked up, as if to prevent his
father being shot, though be did not Bay
anything to Black, when Captain Black
turned his pistol and shot bim. After
this Captain Bluck presented bis pistol
to shoot Solomon Groves, when Mr.
Mc Fail, who happened hf at the time,
struck Captain Black over tho linud with
a bar of iron, knocking him down and
saving Solomon Groves' lifo thereby.

DESCRIPTION OE THE RACE BETWEEN 1
HARRY BASSETT AND LONGFELLOW.-Bat
little difficulty was experienced ia effect?
ing a start, and the horses got away to?
gether, Bassett having the inside traok.
For the first half-mile they ran head and
head, tho only advantage, if any, being
in favor of Bassett. As the horses,
warming into their stride, passed the
grand stand, the excitement rose to fever
pitoh. The first mile and a half found
their positions unchanged, but the back?
ers of Bassett evidently bad misgivings,
as their, favorite was doing bis best,
while it seemed Longfellow was still be?
ing held in by his rider. -Their fears
were confirmed when the horses swept
past the grand stand the second time.
Longfellow's rider gave head to his
horse, who gallantly responded, and
quickly placed two lengths between him?
self and Bassett.
The scene was indescribable. Men
threw their hats in tho air and cheered
wildly, while ladies waved handkerchiefs
aud bet countless pairs of gloves on
John Harper's steed. From this mo?
ment it was evident all was up with Bas?
sett, aud although his rider used whip
and spur without stint, it was of no
avail. Every moment Longfellow in?
creased his lead, and landed an easy
winner in 4.34, or, as some of tho judges
claim, in 4 33. Bassett was beaten over
a dozen lengths. The enthusiasm of the
Western men was unbounded. They
crowded around John Harper, cheering
and congratulating the old man, who
also seemed laboring under great excite?
ment. Immense sums were lost on the
race by New Yorkers. John Morrissey
is umoug the heavy losers. The day's
races are acknowledged the finest and
best conducted of the American turf.
"You G WINE HIT WHAB YOU LOOK?"
A negro held a cow while a oross-eyed
mau was to knock her on the head with
an axe. The negro, observing the man's
eyes, in some fear inquired, "Yon gwiue
hit whar you look?" "Yes." "Den,"
said cuffee, "hold de cow youBelf. I
ain't gwiue to let you hit me."
The story is applicable to Forney's
war. He is making a great to do of his
assailing Hartranft, but is so cross-eyed
in the business that Grant cannot but
think the blows are aimed at him. In a

marks, which are evidently more appli?
cable to Grant than to Hartranft:

evening. Boyd had bad a fight with
some citizens, and a warrant for his
arrest was placed in tho hands of Taylor,
who, on finding Boyd, informed him of
the warrant and read it to him. Boyd
signified his willingness to go with Tay?

him through the breast, killing him in?

Boyd at first refused to give himself up,
feuring that he would be lynched, but
finally surrendered and was released on

aud thc citizens of Baxter held a meet?

as wilful and malicious, and pledged
