A Pair of Precious Scoundrels at Chicago —A Revolting Outrage Upon an
A moat flagrant outrage was reoently com
mitted upon an unprotected woman, Marion
E. Knox, in Chioago, by two young men who
had hitherto sustained respectable reputations,
Samuel W. Arnold and Charles V. Cady. At
the time of the perpetration of the orimo, the
former was baggage-master on the Hook
Island Bailroad, and the latter was engaged
with some business house in that oity.
Mrs. Knox, after losing her husband and
undergoing varioaB misfortunes, arrived with
her brother and an infant in Chioago, and
stopped at the gate of the Court-house, while
her brother entered the building to look for a
friend. The Prat and Tribune thus relates
what afterward ocourred:
While standing leaning against the iron
railing, Arnold came up and aooosted her,
aaked her several quostions, and by her replies
ascertained her wants, and then offered to pro
vide supper and lodging for her and her
brother. She at first deolined, bnt on his urg
ing her and protesting that he was an honest
man, he induced her to accompany him, say
ing to her brother, who in the mean time had
returned, unable to find Mr. Foote, that he
would come back in a few minutea and also
aocompany bim to the hotel.
Arnold took the poor woman to the Sollitt
House, went with her to the parlor, and then
to the office and registered himself and Mrs.
Knox as "Dr. Brown and lady.". After he
had done this, he was shown a room with a
bedroom attached. Into this he took his vio
tim and after conversing with her a few min
utes, said he was obliged to go out for a lit
tle while, and left her, locking her in tho
room as he left, and carrying the key with
him. She laid her child on the bed, and then
laid herself down beside it to get it to sleep.
While lying on the bed Arnold returned,
C8tne into her room, and by threats and vio
lence accomplished his fiendish purposes.
He then left her, and she foil asleep. In
about two hours after the occurrence narrated
he returned to Mrs. Knox's room with Cady,
and while Arnold gagged her and held her
down Cadv oernetratcd the same fiendish act.
The villains were held in $5,000 each for
appoarance at court, it tney are guilty they
deserve to bo hung.
' Hostility and Strength or thi Indians
on tub Fbontibb. The St. Joseph Gazette of
a late date observes;
We had the pleasure yesterday of a call
from Maj. Sohoonover, agent of the Upper
Missouri Sioux, oomprising six nations of that
tribe. The number of Indians under the
charge of Maj. S. is not less than twenty-soven
thousand. Maj. Sohoonover passed thlsoitv
on his way to his labora, on the 4th of last
Juno, and has undergone a vaat amount of
nardsnips in the past six months, in reaching
and oommunicatiDg with the wild and hostile
tribes of his agency.
The nations oomposing the Northern portion
of the powerful Sioux tribe are deeply imbued
with a spirit of hostility to the whites and
that portion of the tribes further South, whom
they regard aa having compounded with the
pale faoo to rob them of their lands, 'and to
hasten the extinction of the Indian race. They
recognize the fact that the whole race is
doomed, but succumb to their fate with the
illest possible grace. They have sworn ven
geance dire against any white man that may be
found within their territory, and it is not un
likely thia threat will be carried into itriot
execution. ' -
A Hooa Balloon to bs Constbootid in
Hoosiirdoh. Mr. Joseph Danziger, the La

construction of a mammoth balloon to be
called "The Star City,!' designed to carry
four passengers, besides provisions and ballast.
In its construction Mr. Danziger designs using
a new material for which he clainiB a patent,
called silk rubber, whose virtue consists in its
expansive quality, great strength, and econ
omy, enabliug the aeronaut to dispense with
all netting save what may be necessary to
Bnstain the basket. By this expansive qual ity
tho balloon, before sailing, may be inflated to
its fullust capacity, regardless of the rarity of
the atmosphere in the great eastern or upper
current. Mr. Danziger expeots to complete
his balloon in time for an experimental as
cension on the first of next May.

the Roman Catholic Primate of all Ireland,
has issued a pastoral letter, in which he affirms
that a groat aot of spoliation Is contemplated
in the way of depriving the Pope of hla tem

sorts are heaped upon his Uovernment by ene
mies who are becoming every day more pow

a condition of things, the Primate only asks
for the prayers of the faithful in Ireland, but
he hints that it may hereafter be necessary to

A Gbavb Question fob Debate. The Froth-
ville debating society was considering the
propriety of purchasing a burial lot, and it
waa used as an argument in its favor that one
or the members bad expressed the wish that,
when he dies, he might be laid in a lot owned
by the society he esteemed so much. "How do
you get along with your burial lot?" waa aaked
or one who waa inimical to the purchase. "Oh,
it'a all settled," was the reply; "it is to be pur
chased, bnt the man who agreed to be buried
in it Das DaoKea out."
A Modsb in a Loai or Breao. In cuttine
a four-pound loaf of bread in a farmer's fam

ered, enugly and warmly constructed of a
leaf of a copy-book, torn into shreds, on
which reposed nine young mice. What
makes it more syiguiar is, that the loaf was
baked only on the preceding day.
Mcedeb in Evansville, Ind. Two river

Th Timpbahkcb Oadbe in Iekland. John
B. Gough lately gave three lectures in the

Incident or the Revolution Lafayette
and the Fifes-Soldier. In the war of the
Revolution, when General Lafayette com
manded ia the American army, a part of the
troops were encamped at a certain place near
the water's edge. One calm summer's even
ing, a soldier, who was a lifer in one of tho
oompanies, went into tho water for the pur
pose of bathing. Being an excollent swim
mer, aa well as lifer, he took his fire with him
to the water, and engaged In filing and swim
ming at the same time.
The mdsio reached the ear of Lafayette.
Eatly next morning he sent an oluoer. In pur
suit of tho man, who had thus dlaobeyod the
order of theoamp.
The soldier waa a native of Connecticut, and
a man of truth. When arrested by the officer,
and on the way to the Genoral'a tent, he
thought within himself, that, perhaps he might
esoape a severe punishment by denying the
deed. On a few moment's reieotion, however,
he said to himself, "I have always spoken the
truth I eannot tell a lie." With this prin
olple in his mind, he came Into the presence
ot the General, who asked him if he was the
Individual who played upon the evening pre
vious, to whloh he replied "I am."
"And do you know," continued Lafayette,
"of any others in the army who can play the
same tune 7" r
- "Two or throe, I do," said the soldier.
"To-morrow evening, then, (naming the
hour), I wish you to repair to my tent with
They came at tho appointed hour. The
General then informed thorn that tho tuno he
had heard the evening before afTected him
very much that on a former occasion it had
been played at the funeral of a dear friend of
his, who died in his native country. Since
then, until now, he had never met with tho
individual who could play it. "For the pur
pose of indulging in the melancholy pleasure
of hearing it onco more, I have," said he,
"sent for you."
The General, after boing agreeably enter
tained with tho conversation and innsio of
his guests, dismissed them with his thanks
and aomo guineas from his purse, as an ex
pression of his satisfaction at their performance.
A Oimo but Unfortunate Poet. Tho
biographer of James Clarenoe Mangan, an
Irish poet, of fino talent but unfortunate habits,
thus speaks of the bard: And now it almost
repents me that I undertook to narrate tho
events of this man's outer and visible life,
even to gratify the natural interest which his
loving, worshiping readers can not but feel in
all that concerns him an interest, howevor,
whioh is deeper and higher than mere ouriosity.
No purer and more benignant spirit ever
alighted upon earth no more abandonod
wretoh ever found earth a purgatory and a
hell. There wore, as I have said, two Man
gans: one well-known to the Muses, the other
to the polioe; one soared through the enipyr
ian and sought the stars tho othor lay too
often in gutters of Peter and Bride-stroeta. I
have read the livos and sufferings of Edgar A.
Poe and of Richard Savage. Neither was so
consummate a poet, neither so miserable a
mortal. Yet in one reaped poor Mangan
compares favorably with them both; he bad
no malignity, sought no revenge, never
wrought sorrow and suffering to any human
being but himself. In his deadly struggle
with the sold world he wore no defiant air
and attitude; was; always humble, affection
ate, almost prayerful. He was never of the
"Satanic school," never devoted mankind to
theNnfernal gods, nor cursed the sun; but the
cry of bis spirit was ever, "Miserable man that
I am, who will deliver uie from the wrath to
The Green-Eved Monster in Michioa.y
A Husband Shouts thb Brtrayor of his
Honor. Ia Port Huron, Mich., resides a man
and his wife named McGee,and another man
Dr. Frennel. For somo time Mcdoe had been
absent from the city; but having returned a
few days ago, the demon of jcalonsy whis
pered to him that Mrs. MoGee had proved
false to her vows, and that Dr. Frennel had
tempted her. In order to test the truth of
these rumors, he announced to his wife on
Monday night that he had business whioh
would take him to Detroit for a short time.
Instead, however, of trusting her so far
from his protecting euro again, he eusconsod
himself under her bed, armed with a revolver
loaded to the very muzzle with powdor and
balls, and thore awaited the development oi
events. He had not long to wait, for his wife
soon made her appearance, followed by the
treacherous Doctor. McGeo did not wait for
any further evidence of his wife's frailty or
the Doctor's weakness, but taking deliberate
aim from his secure retroat, discharged the
whole oontents of his murdorous weapon into
the seducor's leers, as he was standing in
"loving dalliance" with Mrs. MoGee. His
aim proved good, excited as be was, tho bul
lets bringing the Doctor to her feet, with
one thigh-bone broken and three or four other
bullets in trie lower part ot his body.
A Wagib About Aoe Adboitlt Decided.
Old Mr. Russell was onoe fairly caught in his
own trap. He is better known as Major Ben
Russell, and being met by his old friend
liusby, no was tamiiiarly saluted with a hearty
shake of the baud. "How do you do, old
Ben Russoll?" "Come, now," said Maior
Ben, "I'll not take that from you not a bit of
It. You are as old as I am this minute."
"Upon my word," says Mr. Busby, "you are
my senior by at least ten years." "Not at all,
friend BuBby, and, if you please, we will de
termine that question very soon. Just tell
me what is the first thing you recollect?"
"Well, the first thing I reoolleot," said Mr.
Busby, "was hearing people say, 'There goes

Doubtful Consolation. Not long ago a
bridegroom, returning from his wedding, was
met by a friend, who thus addressed him:
"Well, Jack, I'm glad to see thee in thy happy
position, thou'st seen the end of thy trouble
now." ''Thank thoe, lad." was Jack's an
swer, "I hope I have." About a month af
terward the two friends met again, when
Jack, speaking rather warmly, exclaimed,
"Bill, thou tolled me a lie that morning I got
wed I Didn't thou say I'd aeon th'end of my
trouble" "I did," said Bill; "but I didn't
tell thee which end."

The Origin of Touchino Glasses in Drink
ing. A writer in tho Iliitorkal Mayatine for
November tlma attempts to explain the ori
gin of the habit of touching glasses in drink
"Ono branch of my ancestry was Scotch,
and devoted adherents of Charles Stuart.
While a boy my father possessed a heavy
cut-and-tbrust basket-hilt sword, whioh one
of tho Richardson family, my fathers mater
nal ancestor, had used at Colloden. From
him this tradition descended to tho family, as
to touching glasses.
"When, after tho failure of the expedition
of tho so-called Pretender, Prince Charles, in
1715, the Prince crossed to France, his sup
porters wore beset with spies on every hand ;
it frequently happened that thoy were placed
in situations when they could not with safety
refuse to respond to the common toast, 'The
health of the King.' It was understood be
tween tho faithful, that when the king waa
drunk, it was the 'king o'er the water ;' and
to express this symbolically, ono glass was
passed over another. This, in time, was mod
ified to the Bilent touching of glasses. In the
lower part of South Carolina and in Virginia,
generally aottled with cavaliers, the nabit
has prevailed and spread wherever their de
scendants have gone in the South and West.
It is the habit of men to-day, in drinking, to
touch invariably, but I have never known
the custom explained by any one class. You
may rely on this being its true exposition."
Pen and Ink Portrait or Thublow Weed.
Thurlow Weed, of Albany, is thus sketched ;
"Tall, angular, and large-boned, with thiok
and wiry gray hair, out olose, and adhering
vigorously to a long, strong, angular and
massive head, full of nervous force this gen
tlemen, with harsh, square features, promi
nent cheek-bones, lips habitually compressed;
shaggy grey eye-brows fringing a aloping
shelf or forehead; hazy gray eyes of subtle
nue Keen, vigilant, numoristio, with great
power oi aevore expression; a nose long, mus
cular, and standing out like a sentinel cn
duty before the other features these, with a
saturnine complexion and stenographio habit
of face, lramed under a broad-brimmed pro
vincial beaver bat, and surmounting largely-

paying his regular visit to an
agricultural fair such, aa near as we can give
it, ia the outer man of Thurlow Weed, beyond
all comparison the first unofficial publie man
in theUnltedStatea. Pressing forward under
a high condensation of vital incentives, his
face is lighted up with inexhaustible energies
of purpose, and his whole body is thrown for
ward aa if to overtake and seize the objeot
whioh he is mentally pursuing, and evidently
prepared to make it sucoumb. - He is an in
veterate smoker, and frequently uses his oigar
between his fingers, snlting the notion to the
word, while he nnfolds his viow."
Slaves in ' Maryland Awabi oar Old
Brown's Intended Invasion. Some two or
three days previous to the Harper's Ferrv
insurrection, Mr. George Jaoobs, residing near
Finkaburg, Maryland, became convinced that
something waa wrong among hia negroes. He
paid particular attention to their movements,
ana mat nignt, witn the assistance or his
neighbors, overtook tbem as thoy were about
leaving, in company with the alaves of Dr.
Butler, a neighbor of Mr. Jacoba. Upoa
searching them, it was discovered that tney
were armed with long knives uiado of old
soythe blades. Thoy had secured the horsos
of their masters, and upon being interrogated,
confessed that they had been induoed by a
white man to leave their masters and join in
an attempt to bemads somewhere In Virginia
to liberate slaves. Their destination, no
doubt, waa Harper's Ferry. .-..;
