Fiendish Outrage.
On laat "Thursday morning, about nine
o clock, a vile outrage was perpetrated on the
persop.of Mrs.;' Adkins, a respectable widow
lady, residing about six miles from our town,
by a negro boy named Horace, and belonging
to Mrs. I. Williams." Horace Wat at work on
the road,and had been sent for 4 load of wood.
He left the team near Mrs. Adkins's and was
wen by' two of he neighbori to enter her
house, she being alone,, having sent her three
children to' school. . ,:. , ...
.About ten, o'clock, Mr. A ton, a neighboring
blacksmith) saw Mrs. Adkins half way between'
his shot) and her house, and from her unsteady.
tottering gait, and the bloody appearance of
her bead, be surmised sue was badly hurt, and
hastened to her aid.' When' he reached the
lady she could bot speak, and, indeed, re
mained insensible for some hours; but when
consoionsness returned,' aad she could articu
late, the stated that the negro boy Horace had
oommitted the violence and assault. :l
Eight cuts, fronwmfl-te two inches long, and
extending to the bone, were found on her head,
and the are-shovel was found, literally colored
with blood, in the yard. , The chamber, where
the villain first assaulted her contained two
large pools of blood, trom her wounds.. ' Her
neck, was also discolored, where, the scoundrel
had choked her to prevent her ories for assist
ance, -r A soon as Mrs, Adkins told who was
Jhe, perpetrator, parties went out in search of
oad captured the sooty ruffian, and scon had
him in jail at Morganfleld. It was with diffi
culty that the more reflecting citizens could pre
vent lynch law being applied on the spot. ..
The rascal, alter his attempt, (and perhaps
success) in violation of the lady, when felled
to the floor by blows, was fearful that she
would expose him, and to determined on kill
ing her, and, no doubt, left her for dead.

Wine Making.
Wina Wime. During the crushing of the
grapes and falling or the same in the press,
some jnioe will run oft without nresainir; th
juice will make the first quality of white
wine, ana is generally barreled by ttself. When
the press beoomes full, and Is pressed Slightly,
the juice thus trained will make tha
quality. Now the balanoe remaining can be
used to distill brandy from, or make an infe
rior quality of red wine. For the latter pur-
v. . th. Lnl. In. , .
f,w.v, ui, nuvja lunsB, wuu aiems ana an,
nto a large fermenting tub, and when nearly
full, fill the balanoe with Dura water anrl let if
ferment. - ' ,
The first and seoond run of the inioe.
stated, is put In separate barrela, which are
filled within six inches from the top, the bung
hole oovered with vine leaves or a cloth, and
left for fermentation. .
Rkd Wine. If persons wish to make the
first quality of red wine, tha nrooess la as
follows: ' ' .
Take the whole crushed mass, together with
its j uice, and put it in the fermenting tub; cover
said tub with a dean cloth; let it ferment in
warm weather six days ; if cool, twelve or
fourteen days, and take every day a crutch-like
stick and press the stemB, which will oome to
the top of your tub, down into the fluid mass;
when, after the above given time, yon put
your ear to the tub and hear no fermentation,
the wine is ready to be drawn; but to be per
fectly sure, take a gimlet and bore a hole in
the tub about from six to ton inches from the
bottom, aocording to the size of tho vessel, and
if the wine comes out clear you can draw it
off into the barrels; but In your fermenting tub
you must have, previous to putting in the
mass, nailed a grate or kind of seive over the
fajcet hole, to prevent the grape seeds from
oomihg Into (he faucet hole. Now, your red
wine barrels have to receive the same care, as
stated above of your white wine, in your
oellar, with the exception that the red wine
barrel must be filled fall, as there Is no danger
of a strong fermentation as of white wine.' " Of
course every person will understand that-to
make red wine you must have blue grapes; but
white wine ean be made as well from blue as
white grapes, '. ''' i '
Sbconp Qualitt op' Rkd' Win'-It was
stated above that the white Wine from the blue
grapes was pressed, and then the mass of stems
aad busks was put into A fermenting tub filled
with water and left for fermentation, the fluid
drawn of? this would give only a poor wine;
but if Said fluid Is pressed over stems and husks
in A second tub, and left over them for twenty
four hours, thin draw off, and pouf over husks
and stems In a third tub, and this way continue
up to five or six tubs the fluid drawn off from
the. last tub will make' an excellent wine the
next July or iugqst,' ''' ' -,
When the Buid from tub number one is
drawn off, to ptur it over the 'stem and husk
mash fn tub untnber twoone must be filled
with warm water, which is left twenty-four
hours on it, and then the same process is
applied as above desoribed, said fluid passing
through all the tubs; and this is to be con
tinued by peurtng slowly warm water over all
the mash in said tubs until every article of
spirituous mattsr is extracted from them this

an anecdote of the family of an old acquaint

"The old gentleman made it a rule that the
children should dine at a side table until they
were sixteen jlears old, at which age they were
permitted to eat with the elder members of the

Arrest of Capt. Cook.
CHAMBERSBURG, October 26.
Capt. John E. Cook was arrested ' yesterday
by Moisrs.Daal, Logan and Claggett Fitzhugh,
at Moulatto, Franklin County, .thirteen miles
from this place. There is no doubt of this
being the man. His printed commission rilled
up and signed by Gen. Brown and marked No.
4, was found upon his person. Also a. memo
randum, written on parohment, of the pistol
presented to Washington by Lafayette, and
bequeathed to Lewis W. Washington in 1854,.
' The pistol, he says, is in a carpet bag, whioh
he left in the mountains. - He was fully armed
and made a desperate resistance. He came
out of the mountain into the settlement to
obtain provisions. He was muoh fatigued,
and almost starved. He was brought, to this
nlaoeat eicht o'olock last night, After an
examination before Justioe Biesher, and being
fully ldenuned oy one or our oitisens who for
merly knew him, he wai oommitted to jail to
await a requisition from Gov, Wise, He ac
knowledged having three others with him on
the mountain, one ol worn was seen and con
verted with. I-. - ,
He bad a blue blanket over bis shoulders
and carried a Sharp's rifle and double-barreled
gun. ; He said it belonged to his partner, who
had gone for provisions. Parties wilJL go in
search of the others to-day. ; r
Width op th Mississippi. The Mississippi
River about the mouth of the Missouri averages
3,600 feet in width. From there to the mouth
of the Ohio it averages 3,200 feet; from the
Ohio to the Arkansas about 3,000 feet; from
the Arkansas to the Red River about 2,700
feet; and from the Red River to the Gulf of
Mexico the average width is about 2,100 feet.
Yet with this oonstant narrowing of the river
the volume of the water to be discharged is
constantly increasing. Hence, it is contended,
oome those bayous which start out of the river
and lead away into the swamps, and down in
various directions to the Gulf. ' ' '
