that there were present representatives f xcun

On tbe re-assembling of the body Oral id Sire
Craighead presented his annual report, The
report speaks of the general condition of the
order as prosperous. In the immature d ays of
me order, whon it was less careful and ei rcum-
speot than at present, many out of mere
thoughtlessness, some from idle curiosity and
some from purely , selfish motives, louche and
obtained admission to its fold ; bat not having
been imbued with the ennobling pnnoiplos of
brotherhood, which oonstltute the . life of the '
fraternity, tbey had proved unworthy, anil to r.
large extent, in various ways, had gone out from
it..; The winnowing time wa approaching, and
ths order was moving on to its high and .holt
mission with a new and confident impulse. J.(
speaks of the iniluence shed by the oelebratif ;n
of the anniversary of the founding of '4he
order, and recommends that the 20th day 0f
April in each year be observed, a, far as jrao
tioable, as a day seared and peculiar to ydj.

boo meets regularly and performs all its du
"'ie nave that of reporting to ths Urand Lodge
'A the United States, which omission arises
from the fact that it is without fund, and un
able to pay its dues. The attention of the
Grand Lodge was called to a petition Irom the
Victoria Grand Lodge of Australia Odd-Fellow,,
praying for recognition and for a charter
upon the same terms us that issued aouio years
ago to the Grand Lodge of British North
America. - There are now seven subordinate
lodges in that jurisdiction all in . excellent
finanoial condition, and , apparently embued
with the genuine spirit of Odd-Foliowship.
But there were questions of greater policy to
be considered in connection with the applica
tion, and former experience should admonish
to prudence in attempting to erect independent
sovereignties of Odd-Fellows.
After speaking of some matters affecting
only tho workings of the lodges, the report
otlls attention to the finanoial condition of tbe
body.'; It wonld, as heretofore, be necessary to
pledge the credit of the Grand Lodge for the
necessary expenses of the meeting. -
Grand Secretary Ridgeley then prosenlcd his
report It speaks of a correspondence with the
Australian Odd-Fellows, which correspondence
is submitted for the consideration of the body.

The report states tho amount of receipts for

$9,804 81, and from Grand Encampments $1,

last meeting, $3,240 were not requirod, which
will leave $16,910, a sum within the aotual re
ceipts, and adequate to meet the legitimate ex
penses of the Grand Lodge. ,

Further news of the invostlgatl on, in Judgo
DAvus'a Court, In New Yorklies follow,.
After reading tho Indenture, a ctr, oy of whioh
we gave yesterday, the oounsel for Mr. Whit
m prepared A return, of which tin following
is the substance t,;
That the relator sever gave his consent that
the ohild be taken out of the State of Ohio;
that he did not know that the was te be taken
away from that State; and that he wooCld not
have oonsented to the proposition bad in1 been
made to bim; the traverse then denioi 1 that
Mr,. Burns had porformed all the stipul ation,
of the indenture on her part, and that a'ao had
devoted herself to the eduoation and ou.turo of
Tide traverse then set up that in vin dloation
of the indenture and without the consent of the
delator, the respondent had removed the ohild
irom ue state or unto to O'aiitoraia, to Eu
rope, and to the State of New York and other
States of the Union, and exhibited! her in pub
lie for pecuniary gain ; that she had offered tbe
services of the said child to the managers of
theatre,, &c, at different times and places, and
that for pecuniary gain ; that :uoh a career for
the child was not oontotiplated in the inden
ture, and that it would injure theehild by sub
jecting it, when so doing, to severe training,
late hours, excitement, tc. '
i The traverse Bet up that the indenture
undor which the defendant clnim ed tho child.
was repugnant to tho revised statutes of th e
Stati) of Ohio; that under the "provisions 0f
said statute, such ' instrument must l;e ro
cordotl with the Township Clerk, wher , tuo
parties reside, and that if it :s not 80 re
corded, it is void. It was deiiied trint this
indontur.e was evor recorded.
The traverse then denied tlis.t t;ne relator
had attempted to take possess' arm of the child
in any othe r way than by dur t 'process of law.
It also stat 3d that a writ c if kahcai corpui
wasisBucd by theProbato Ju dge of Hamilton
County, in J.uly, 1851), and , directed to the
respondent, eoiiimandiiig hor .to produce the
body of tho chi.'d, and avern yl that she then
evaded tho servKie of the wri t, and took the
child beyond the Jurisdiction , of tho courts of
that State. That i 'liothcr w rit was issued on
tho 1st of Septcml'er, of the same year, by
Judge Ingraham, ot' this citi r, and averred
that tho respondent ticn v, ded the service
of that writ.
Mr. Larooque then stated fj lat the traverse
of the return had put the ms tter into an en
tirely new form, and wholly dil erent from that
which counsel had befoie intim; sted. lie oould
see no way ot disposing of th e case now but
to take the testimony as to ths issues of fact
botwoen the parties, however d iuagreoable and
unexpected it might be.
- The court euggestod that a" refcrco be ap
pointed to tako testimony, but Mr. Ash mend
objected, Haying that under th o usual prac
tice in such coses tho proper ' ivay to proceed
was to take altidavita on cither side, which
should bo submitted to the soui-t. Mr.' La
rocquo would not consent tin it the testimony
should bo taken in tho shnp s of acparte n Hi
davits, as in that csso they ki low about what
allidavits they would have to 1 meet and con
tend with. ,
After some further discussion ! the Court ad
journed tbe ease over to Tues d ay, the 27th,
(a. Judge Davies is to be abaci it this week,)
at which time the case will pros eed in open
Court, and tbe testimony takes i before the
Judge. Mr. Ashmead then aske d that in the
interim the relator be allowed a ooess to the
child. Mr. Larooque objected, t hat, a, the
child was sick, such visits would tt nd to excite
and injure it, especially as she mi ght conceive
tbe fact that the party was en ileavoring to
obtain possession of ber. The court - then
ordered that tbe child remain in th e custody or

A Free Colored Man's Trials.
A Leavenworth (Kansas) pape r relates
Allen Pinks, a native of Pitt iburg, Ponn.,
and free-born, after making sev tral trips on
the Ohio, Mississippi, Missouri,, Yazoo and
other rivers, came from St. Louis to Leaven
worth a y ear ago last August, l'n September
be shipped on the Twiliyht and it ent to St.
Joseph, and from there buck to Woaton.
While in town making some pur chases, the
steamer went off and loft him. in crossing
tho river to Kansas, he was kidnap ped by an
old man named Washburn, togetl ler with a
white man who was crossing with b im. They
were tied together, but the white n ian was re
leased, and Pinks- committed to ja il, withont
an opportunity to establish his freedom. He
was confined from tho 14th of September till
tbe 18th of Marcb, when he osoaped, went to
St, Louis, and shipped on board of steamor
Minnehaha for St. Joseph. ,
At Weston, the old jailor and a motley crew
boarded the boat, and took hun back to
his old quarters in the jail. A cannon was
planted at the landing, as if to intimidate the
Captain of the boat, who tried to prevent the
arrest, but failed. lie was looked up in the
iron box onoe occupied by Doctor Doy .where he
remained till the 15th of August. That even
ing the door was opened by the keeper, when
Allen knocked him down, and by swimming
the Platte, Missouri and Kansas rivers, and
traveling fifty miles on foot without food, ex
cept a watermelon, for the throe and a half
days, reaohed here on the morning of tbe 18th
His freo papers hid been taken from him in
Missouri, and the jailor at Platte City intend
ed to keep him until September, when be
would have boen sold for his jail fees. He is
nearly whlto, very intelligent, and would have
commanded a high price in the Southern mar
A gentleman of this city wrote at once to
Pittsburg for necessary papers to establish the
fact that he was well known to be a free man
in that olty. This request was promptly re
sponded to, and the papers at once forwarded to
us. Requisite affidavits were sworn to by Mr.
AVilliam M. Arthur, who know Pinks and his
family well, and by Dr. Thomas J. Gallagher,
who was the attending physician at the birth
of Allen Pinks, and had been the family pay
sioian of the Pinks family.
- - We had the pleasure, on Tuesday last, of
presenting to Mr. Pinks his free papers whioh
bis friends at Pittsburg had prepared for bim.

Important Metallic Discovery.
v the startling discoveries of tho age
has just, beon made, and its effect upon the
commercial affairs of the world cannot be fore
told. -Ve allude to the late discovery in the
Pro' jess of making or smelting of a new metal
ea iled the Byrne ore or Byrne metal, which
r.as been named after the inventor. This new
lnotal is of such a naturo that either an imita
tion of gold or silver can be produced which
would defy deteotion by more than nine-tenth,
of the dealers in ware, manufactured of pure
gold and silver. The most astonishing part of
tbe disoovery is that of its being so valuable
as to be used in the manufaoture of every arti
in which gold or silver can be used. This
metal ia being used now in the manufaoture of
watch-cases, rings, penoils, forks, spoons,
heads for canes, tooth-pioks, pens, table-sets,
. chandeliers, and, in fact, everything in which
gold and silver has been used heretofore ; and
when it is understood that this metal was sold
in the manufactured state for two dollars an
ounce, the immonse revolution which it is
destined to produoe in the commercial world
ean be partially conceived. , Its weight and
general appearanceare precisely like that of gold
and silver; thus making it without doubt the
equal of thoio metals in the manufacture of
everything else but money, whioh use is made
oertain because it will not change its appear
ance by ubb any more than gold or silver will,
and not so muoh when alloy to any great extent
When we oan buy service of plate made of a
metal which represents gold in every particular
but its value for two dollars an ounce, while
wrought gold is worth eighteen dollars an
ounce, it is easy to perceive that a great revo
lution is about to take place in this branch of
trade In the silver-ware the difference of
price is not 'so great., . A set of silver spoons
which costs now six dollars can be bought,
made of this metal, and which will represent
tho silver in every particular but their value
for two dollars the set. For our part we must
say that this is the most astounding develop
ment that the world has ever known as regards
its commercial arrangomonts. It surpasses the
railroad and telegraph invention beyond a
doubt, and may: end in our
New York News.
MlTfiT TUB Coxditionb OP a Raimmad Sllll
scbiitios ds Co.mi'Libd WiTn'.' An interesting
question was before tho Court of Common
Picas in Washington County, Penn.,aday or
two ago. It was a suit brought by the Pitts
burg and Steubenvillo Railroad against a
subscr; ber to tho railroad, who has mado his
subscription on condition that the road should
run within a hnlf milo of Florence. This
condition not having been complied with,
and the subscriber refusing to pay, the rail
road company instituted suit. Tbo company
contended that tho Commissioner bad no
right to wake such a condition, the terms of
the subscription being prescribed bv the
statute, which is publio lnw, and from which
every subscriber could be informed of bis
obligations ns well as the power of the Com
in issioner. Tho court decided, however, that
the company had no power to enforce the
the contract without performing the condi
tion. Tho Commibsioner had no power to
make the condition, but the company had
power to' carry it out, and it could not be per
mitted to repudiate it, at the same time that
it was suing for the subscription depending
upon that condition. Such conduct would
not bo tolerated between private individuals.
Why should public corporation be held
txmptt The railroad company has appealed
to the Supreme Court.
The Oldbst Suir. The bark Maria has
just arrived at this port from a three-years'
years crin?e in tne Indian uoean. She was
built at the town of Pembroke, now called
Hanson, for a privateer during tho revolution
ary war. She was bought by Wm. Rotoh, a
merchant of Nantucket, aftorward of this city,
in tbe year 1763, and in the same year she
made a voyage to London, with a cargo of oil.
Her register is dated A. D., 1782, and she is
consequently in her seventy-eoventhyear. Ihe
olaims to be tho first ship that displayed the
United States flag in a British port, after the
revolutionary war, whioh flag is in existence,
thongh in shreds. Her modol is of old French
construction, tumbling homo, or rounding very
much in her top sides, and she is consequently
very narrow on the deok, In proportion to her
liie 202 tons. It is said that there stands to
ber credit over $200,000 ; and from ths earliest
history of this ship she has never been any ex
pense by loss to underwriters except once, and
Nimktun Thousand Sivjtx Hvkdeiu and
Sixty-Fits Scalps. What a paradise Arkan
sas must be for Nimrodat How we should
like to have a plate at the "scalp barbecue,"
thus announced in the Little Rock Dtmotral:
A barbeoue is to be given at the Fonrohe
meeting-house. The dinner is to be given by
a party of scalp hunters. We hunted five
weeks and killed Nineteen Ihaunandtetm hundred
and littg-fit scalps, mostly squirrels. The
difference between the two parties was one
thousand one hundred and thirty-four. I am
authorised to extend a general invitation to all
persons, both ladies and gentlemen, in Pulaski
and the adjoining counties, to come and par
take of our dinner. We will hare .'plenty of
good substantial diet, and as pure water as
Pulaski County affords.
