FIRE AND RODBERY.-On Friday last,
while John Gist, alias John Winder, an
industrious and frugal colored man, was
absent attending a religious meeting,
his house with all its contents was burned
to the ground, and hia money ($75)
stolen. Everything indicated thut it was
the act of an incendiary, and a colored
man, by the name of Frank Gist was ar?
rested, and confessed the burning and
robbery. Forty-six dollars waa found
upon his person. - Union Times.

withheld from the public.
Some three months ago, a plain-look?
ing man, of American birth, presented
himself nt one of our leading banks and
solicited an interview with the manager.
Tho manager was very muoh occupied
with his cares, over-burdened with offors
of paper for discount, and harassed with
the prospects of losses on loans, for
which he held collateral in the shape of
mining stocks, seemingly descending on
his hands. He surveyed his supposed
customer, and almost before the first
words of salutation had fallen from the
newcomer's lips, ho said:
4,No, Bir; can't do it. Very sorry, but
have gone beyond our limit to accommo?
date our owu customers. Doing no?
thing on the outside to-day, at any rates.'
Tho stranger mudo no reply, but de?
posited a leatbern valise on thu banker^
desk, opened uud took from it a mass ol
dingy metal, looking half liko coppui
and half like brass, nud hauded it tc
him. Tho mau of money examined ii
curiously, aud returned it, saying ho wai
uo judge of mineral substances, und hat
no time to study this particular speci
The stranger asked him if he wouh
know gold if ho saw it; and, if not
would ho bo kind enough to send fo
some confidential person, on whose judg
uient he could rely, to assuy and deter
miue the quality aud value of his lum]
of metal. Tho proposition was roluc
taLtly ucceded to. One of our mos
* prominent assayers was summoned, an
after examining the substance and in
quiring, with visible excitement, wher
ic came from, and receiving no satisfac
tion, departed, taking it with him, prc
misiug to report on it the next day b
one at noon. Punctually at the aj
poiuted time tho three men mot at tb
bank. The assayer produced tbe meta
which had been ruu into the form of
bar, uud had all the uppearauce of tl
ordiuary gold ingot of commerce.
?.That looks like gold," said tl
"It is gold," said the assayer, "near
a thousand fine-the purest I have ev
put in a crucible."
The stranger said nothing. The ethe
plied him with questions concerning tl
source from whence it came. He civil
but firmly declined to furnish any i
formation, requesting them, as a furth
test of its genuineness, to send it to tl
mint, in tbis city, for coinage. To th;
they assented, and the bar was sent, wi
other bars, to the mint. It was the
again submitted to the tests usual
Buch oases, and the next day its val
was ie tu rued in double eagles-son
thing more than ?58,000-which v?
placed to the credit of the now d?cid?e
interesting stranger. For nearly a wei
nothing was seen of him or heard frc
him. The banker was in a fever of <
citement. He could think of nothi
but the owner of the gold. Ho ran 01
all the mining uews of tho publio pr
for some record of a strike in tho go
producing districts; and, if the tri
must be told, he waited for some inte
genoe of an audocioua robbery of t
treasure-box of an up-country stage
of the rifling of somo bank or asi
office, in which his now- friend :-ho
play a prominent part.
So well satisfied was he of the corr?
ness of this latter conjecture that he 1

under peculiar circumstances, of u la
quantity of refined gold, when the
positor appeared, bringing with hir

This was done, and then tho stran

he added: "I can make it by tho toe

The banker plied him with quest
as to its looality, and with prayers I
permitted to visit the scene of his
volons labors, hut to no purpose,
then held up before tho discovero
powor whioh they could wield ii
community, tho vast possessions w
they might acquire, and the certain
making together a fame unequaled
the world began. He ropresenti
him the impossibility of concoah:
except with the aid of one situated
himself, who could turn this now fl
sion into the now steady money titi
commercial exchanges and swell wi!
destroying them. He attempted to
him the dunger to himself from thc
grin of those whose values he migb
pair or destroy, and the need of caution
in utilizing for himself his terrible secret.
His hearer sat with imperturbable
couuteuanou until the close nf the bank?
er's h a ru uy ne, and then replied:
"I will make you the depositary of my
gold. You may control its issue, and we
will together share tho power it brings.
But my process must remain forever in
my heart. I shall never reveal it. I
will bring you iu a very few days more
than you have now in your vault?. My
laboratory is near the new park, in a
building which would attract uo atten?
tion, nave from its dilapidated appear?
ance. I was at work there during the
most of the past winter, and have by de?
grees succeeded in makiug myself quite
comfortable without attracting attention.
I have several ways of access to it, aud
never use the samo way twice in succes?

fear of discovery aud uttnek; but my
guards are my dogs, and they aro faithful
and silent. There is now more danger
than ever in tho increasing volume of
my product, which will need other
means of transporting raw material and
bringing it back in tho shupe of gold
than tliiri old valise and my hands."
He then turned to a convouieut table
and wrote a few lines, which he sealed in
au envelope und handed to the banker.
"There is the direction to my retreat.
I shah Hurn in a week willi more gold,
and if I fail to come, you may know
some evil hus befallen me. Then come
The banker promised faithful observ?
ance of the injunction, uud with many
protestation:! of mutual fidelity aud good?
will, they parted. The paper hus never
been opened, aud tho manufacturer of
gold has steadily and punctually re-ap?
peared, bringing his weekly enormous
udditions to tho bullion of thebault. It
is said that more than half a million
bavo been manufactured within the pust
two mouths and deposited in the bank.
Some of it hus boon converted into
coin and put iu circulation. Many of
our readers who believe they are handling
the products of our gold miues, now
daily receive and pay out this substance,
oroated from base metals by ono of our
most unobtrusive citizens, ?jomo of it
has been run into tho customary form of
burs, and, stamped with tho brands and
records of our most famous refinery, has
been shipped abroad, as the basis of ex?
change for a banking institution on a
colossal soale, to be established ou the
comparatively small beginning of one of
our noted banks, and the effort will be
mude to make San Fraucisco the centre
of all commercial exchanges and tho
great depository of the products of the
world. The scheme is vast, proportioned
to the power which two men hold in
their grasp. It is frightful to reflect
what may be the result of their ambi?
tion, if it should pass beyond its present
reasonable limits. No human imagina?
tion cun conoeive the end to whioh the
wealth of our moderu Midas and his
banker may bring all established modes
of doing business, and indeed, us we
have said, the Government itself.

THU BOLTERS' RATIITCATION MEETING*
According to announcement, the bolters,
or, us they term themselves, the true Re?
publican party, held their ratification
meeting, ut the City Hall square, last
uight. At about 8 o'clock tbe dusky
clans began to assemble around their
general loafing ph co, the Court House,,
und ut the hour designated for the
speaking about 1,500 or 2,000 persons
had gathered together. It was venti?
lated quito freoley on tho streets during
the day that tho old wur of the Mackey
ites uud tbe Boweuites was to be fougut
over, and the former parly were quito
free and open in their threats to break
up tho bolters' mooting in a row.
For this once, however, they made a
mistake. The bolters knowing the
strength of tho Court Houso ring ia the
city took the precaution to send over to
the surrouuding islands for reinforce?
ments, and promptly to time there ar?
rived a regiment of the dusky tillers of
the sea island soil, all staunch adherents
of Bowen, who were at once formed into
line directly in front of the speaking
stand. Tho presence of this "armed
force" had tho effect of somewhat dis?
concerting tho Court Houso ring, and
although they managed during the con?
tinuance of the meeting, under the in?
fluence of frequent potations of tangle?
foot, to keep up a ruuniug fire of inter?
ruptions, they were rather intimidated
from going the length of their instruc?

not to be excelled.
The next speaker was General W.

Tho multitudinous Senator had a hs
time of it. His appearance was t

put on an extra pressure of steam, a

for tho first time, that the party had \

oould not be heard, and, therefore, con?

practiced in South Carolina.
Tim. Hurley was next introduced, and
at once became master of the situation.
His quick wit and ready ropartee ob?
tained for him that hearing which none
of the other speakers could get. At first,
he was interrupted by a shower of ques?
tions, and one fellow, more loud-mouthed
than the rest, wanted to know how about
buying the Legislature. "Shut up," re?
plied the facetious Hurley; "I don't
want to buy you, because there is some
meat that stiuks so bad that even I don't
want to buy it." This eliot told on the
rabble, and Tim. was master of the situa?
tion. He continued his speech in com?
parative quiet, and made a very effective
one, too. - Cfiarleston Courier.
INFLUENCE OF MUSIC OH ANIMALS.
We have just been reading a very inter?
esting essay regarding the influence of
music on animals. The writer shows
how various animals, and even insects,
are influenced by a concord of sweet
sounds. We have noticed the same
thiug, and thought nothing particular
about it nutil we stumbled on thia
We remember how we have seen
horses influenced by music. One of the
most enjoyable runaways we ever ex?
perienced can be directly traced to the
influence of music on a horse. We wero
driving past whore a band was playing,
and tho music bad moro influence on tho
horse than we bad. H 3 didn't keep
time though. In fact, he didn't keep
anything, harness, buggy, or anything
else. He only kept ruuning. I nevor?
thought musio could have such influence
on a horse.
He beat time,, too. That is to say, ha
beat any time we ever saw bim make
before, even before a- Balky. We would
have - kept that horse to run against
time, if he hadn't run against a lamp
post and ruined himself. Music influ?
ence a horse? Guess not.
i Horses are excellent musical perform
j ere themselves, sometimes. We have
known a hungry horse to go through all
the bars of au oat field correctly, and
never miss an oat, although the owner
of the oats miesed all of bia.
Dogs are singularly affected by music.
We whistled after a strange dog once, *
we remember. The dog stopped, lis?
tened attentively, looked a moment ead,
us though the notes awoke some tender
memories within him, and then came
bounding towards os and embraced the
oalf of our leg in the most affectionate,
manner. He could hardly tear himself
away, and wouldn't if his owner hadn't
como and choked him off.
There is a power of music in a tin ket?
tle when properly brought ont. We saw
one brought out the other day by some
boys, who attached it to a dog's tail.
Talk about the influenoo of musio on
animals! We never saw a dog so moved
in all our life.
Cats uro strangely influenced by the
musio of a violin. It seems to affect their
entire system. In fact, there could be
no violins without doing violins to the
cats. Even a very young kitten, who
don't realize what he has got toc?me to,
mews plaintively when a fiddle-bow is
drawn across the strings. It seems to vi?
brato a sympathetic chord within hi3
owu abdominal enclosuro. It is affect?
ing, the mews of a young kitten, or to
see a young kitten muse.
Birds, never brought up on musio at
all, are brought down by the musio of a
shot-gun. Many of the wild animals aro
charmed with musio. We often hear
music that nothing but a wild animal
would bo charmed with.
The Tyrolians entice a party of stags
by einging, merely entices a "stag"
party. The female deer is allured by
playing the flute. We had a female deer
once, whom wo attempted to allure with
a flute, but the dear female said she was
accustomed to do her own "fluting."
So we let her flute.
The elephant, huge as ho ia, has a
wonderful ear for musio. One of his
ears would make a bass drum bead. Ho
is fond of a march, if he don't have to
march too far. He is also partial to a
gallop; if it is a gal up. We saw a
musio teacher fooling with an elephant
once. The elephant pioked his pooket
and marched off with a whole trunk full
of sheet music.
Among insects the spider is found to
ho very fond of musio. His favorite vo?
calists are the Webb sisters. His favor?
ite ballad "Come fly, to my bower;" it is
a right bower, and wo pity any fly that
