BY HAMILTON C. JONES.
fkxxs: A Court of Justice In North Carolina.
A beardless disciple of Themis rises,
and thus addresses the Court: "May it
please your worships, and you gentlemen
oLtWJury; -since it has been" my for
tune (good or bad I will not say) to ex
ercise myself .in legal disquisitions, it has
never before lefallen me to beioblige J to
prosecute so direful, marked, and malic
ious an assault a more willful, violent,
and dangerous battery and, finally,' a
more diabolical breach of the peace. . It
has, indeed, seldom been your duty to
pass upon one so shocking to benevolent
feelings, as this, which took place over at
Captaia Rice's in this coutj. 1 But you
will hear from the witnesses." " . ,
The witnesses being sworn, two or
three were examined, and deposed. ! One
safj that he h&4 heard the noise,' and
difa't see "the fight v' Another, that he
saw' the tow, but didn't knew who struck
first.; j' And, . third,": that he was very
drunk, and couldn't say much about the
.lawyer L hops 1 am very, sorry een-
tlemerif to have occupied your time with
the stupidity of the witnesses examined.
It arises, gentlemen, altogether from mis
apprehension on my part. Had I known,
as jl do-now, that I have a witness in At

the circumstances of the ease, and who is
able to make himself clearly understood
by Ihe court and jury, I should not so
long have trespassed on your time and
patience. Come forward, Sir. Harris, and
be sworn ...; - "
So forward comes the witness, a
chuffy -looking man, a 'Ieetle' corned,
and took his corporal oath with an air.

Cruelty of England.
In Harper's 'Magazine for October
there is an article by Mr. Guernsey, en
titled " English Rule in India," in which
a detailed account "is" given of the start
ling cruelty of the punishments which
English officials inflicted upon the Sepoy
Rebels. What an excitement there would

seemed as though the only system
dealing with the natives was that of vil
lage burning and hanging. "The gib

wrote an English resident at Benares.
"There" it staads immediately in' frolnt

to it, so that three may always be execu

it would seem, stringent enough to pre
vent all necessity for unlicensed hanging.
By an act of May 30, any persons guilty
of rebellion or waging war against the
Queen or government were liable to the
punishment of death, with the forfeiture
of all their property ; the crime of har
boring rebels was made heavily punish
able. Government might appoint com
missioners to act singly, who were vested
with absolute and final powers of judg
ment and execution, without the presence
of law officers or assessors ; and the pos
session of .arms in any district in whieh
it may be prohibited by the executive
government, was made penal. A week
later an act wos passed punishing by
death , and. confiscation, of- propertyall
persons'convicted of? exciting mutiny or
sedition; giving to courts-martial the
power to-try all persons, whether amena
ble or' riot to the articles of war";' empow
ering the government to issue commis
sions to single commissioners, with full
powers of judgmant and execution, to try
all these offense's.
English statesmen and writers have in
veighed loudly against the Rebellion and
confiscation acts passed by our Govern
ment, which .are, nevertheless,, mild in
character, and guarded in execution com
pared with those passed by the English
only five years ago. By these, powers
were conferred upon any one of an indef
inite number of single commissioners far
greater than those which 'we have grant
ed to the regular courts of justice and
the National -.-Executive-. -, The special
commissioners appointed under these laws
executed their functions in so sanguina
ry. a manner, that General Outraiu was
forced to recommend that tribunals should
be created for the trial of Sepoys who
surrender,, and . had; not been-guilty of
murder. He said it was " hitrh time to

The Noblest Temple.
"There is a very beautiful record
the use of the precious metals in one
the ancient ' religions of America We
read that the earliest children of the Sun
carried with them a wedge of gold, which,
as seed sinking into the ground, brought
forth golden grains. These were 'tears
wept by the sun.' ; These were gathered,
not for coining, but that the rulers might
adorn the temples of the Celestial Friend.
The royal state was Teligious; the king's
wealth was God's wealth,' Enormous
planks of silver and a Cement mingled
with liquid gold were used -in the beau
teous building of their sacred places. In
the garden of Yucay were golden Diths
supplied by subterraneous silver chan
nels. There was a fountain with a jet of
gold; fish of gold and silver, birds of
gold, and curious animals carved in gold,

These holy gardens were dug with silver

An Unsavory Dish.
A wouk descriptive ot tne " Jand s
Fnd" district of Great Britain,, by R
Ivlwanls. jut published at London, has
a full account of the pilchard fishery on
the coast ; whereupon the London,Athe-
nasum thus closes its review ot the book
with a warninc: to travellers- to TJornwall
to beware of pilchards :
o "Cpurtwus reader, let us give you a
word of advice ; if you do go to Corn
wall, do not eat a pilchard rashly. Re
member the first cigar you ever smoked ;
the first olive you ever tasted ; the first
bit oifromage ie. Grvyert you ever smelt ;
and beware of ja pilchard! 'Take a fresh
herring, boil it, (what barbarian ever
boiled a herring?) soak it in cod-liver oil
for twenty-four hours, then serve It swim
ming in salt and water, and call it ' pil
chard !' That is just what the Cornish
woajen give you for breakfast. Shall we
go on ? No, rather be advised ; let the
pilchard be pressed, squeezed, trod upon
sat upon, as they do with those they send
out to the Neapolitan lazzaroni, so that
not a particle ofjhat nauseous lamp .oil
remains, then let it be kept in pickle for
a year, baked and boiled ad infinitum,
and served up with Cayenne pepper ad
lihitwn : so may you eat it with impunity!"

Life in Charleston.—A Gloomy Picture of the
Condition of the City.
We are furnished with the following ex-
tract of a letter to a gentleman from a relative
in Charleston, S. C, under date of November I
10th: - -
''The isolation of onr position is grievous
to be borne, and it is made more than ever
clear to us that there are no ties so strong as
those which bind us to the kindred among I
whom we were born and bred, and those
which hold our hearts to the land of our chil- j
dren. This exile has taught many useful les- I
sons, and. we trust that when again we set
foot upon New England soil, we may value
the institutions which are its boast as highly
as those who sing their praises the loudest.'
Last evening there were at my house three
gendemen, each1 of whom has a wife and chil-
dren at the North ; and a fourth, whose chil-
dren are in Lowell. I have often had a dozen
visitors at once, all of whom were exiles in
our situation. You may then imagine that
not all the residents of Charleston have forgot-
ten the land of their birth. Indeed, my own
opinion is that the majority of 'the residents I
of that city at this time would not mourn to
see that old flag waving in tbe breeze over
town, -i The fire-eaters who are too old to
be in the army, have generally retired into
the interior, where, we trust, they will remain,

The Indian Rope Feat.
The following communication sppesrs in
the London Field of a recent Saturday.
is signed F. T. Buckland ;
Sib : I have been requested to be present
Ut. and rive mv opinion on performance
which I hardly know whether to call a feat
of strength or a feat of ingenuity. I was
challenged to tie the performer of thi feat
into a chair with a rope, in any number of
knots, in such a manner that he could not get
; Accordingly, I presented myself at the time
and place appointed, and, half suspecting some
sleight of hand trick, provided myself with
several yards of very strong rope. The per-
former; an intelligent and rather good lookin"
young man, sat himself in a common wooden
kitchen chair, and presented me with his rope
I asked if he had any objections to my using
my rope. , "None whatever," was the reply,
"and you may fie me in, any way. and with
as tight knots as you please.'
Having examined the chair to see that all
was right and above board, I proceeded first
to pinion the -arms of the young mad, who
sat down on the chair, pinioning them "Jack
Ketch fashion" behind his body. Ithenlwh
the ed, them, tied as they . were, tightly,' with
many knots and twistiugs. to the back of the
chair. I then tied his two wrists tightly to
the legs of theaair, pulling the ropes, I fear,
cruelly tight;' as the man afterward showed
me where I hrf! cut the skin ; but he did not
complain ot tins a bit, as he had ouered me
the challenge." I then, by means of a double
hitches,'.' fastened each ankle to the corre
of sponding leg of the chair, then tied both legs
together, finishing off the rope with an at-
tachment to the back rail of, the chair. ; ; I
then tied up his body, twisting tbe rope round
and round, and fastening it wherever I could
get a chance.
The performer was now, indeed, bound
band and toot, and could hardly move in any
direction: whatever. A large linen extinguhsh
regarded was- then placed over him, tied as he was,
and, I and the other spectators stood round,
a. little distance, to see that no collusion
fookr place.. In four minutes and a half the
performer gave the signal, the extinguisher
was removed, and there sat the young man
perfectly free and unbound, and the ropes at
his feet ' I had tied him with seven pieces of
rope the Usual number is four and ' the
seven pieces of rope lay st his feet, in no way
injured, or out, except. -at the places where I
bad cut them off the main piece, and I had
taken the precaution to mark my own cuts so
to know them again.
I have not the slightest idea haw the per
successful former, managed to loose himself. I fancy
that he must ase actual physical strength in
doing, as he. seemed exhausted and in a
profuse perspiration.' Perhaps some of the
who have seen tlie trick in India, where
believe it is frequently performed, may be
to throw; some light on the matter.

Tns following extract is from Mr. Trollone's
recent travels in the United States :
I wa at Chicago and at Buffalo In October,
I went down to the eranaries. and
climbed up into the elevators. I saw the
wheat runnintr in rivers from nna vp..1 tn
another, and from the railroad vans un into
huge bins on the top stories of tbe ware
houses; for there rivers of food run up hill
eisilv as thev fn down. T enw tito Ari-r
measured by the forty bushels measure with
much ease as we measure an ounce of
cheese, and with greater rapidity. I ascer-
tained that the work went on, week day and
Sunday, day and night incessantly; rivers of
wheat and rivers of maize ever running I saw
bathed in corn as ' they distributed it in
flow. I saw bins by the score laden with
wheat, in each of whieh bins there was space
