ELECTION OF CIRCUIT JUDGES.
Of the 16 circuits to be supplied we
have elected Judges for the first nine,
and in eight of them the incumbents
haye been re-elected. In the Dan
ville Circuit, Treadway, the incum
bent, declined re-election, and Ber-j-iman
T. Green was elected over Nel
son, of FranUia, and Whittle, of
Patrick. Nelson received a heavy
and very flattering vote, which was
due to the speech made by the excel
lent delegate from Franklin, Waddy
T. James, who is one of the most
popular members of the Honse, and
who made a speech which made a very
large number of votes on the spot.
If a little time could have been al

B." W. Luqv, of the House, opposed
Judge Montague. The Funders vo

and Montague was re-elected by a
decided majority. Lacy desc ved a
better support than was given him by
:the party to whom he had stood as
true as any man.
To-raorow, I think, we shall elect

met again to-night and adopted the
report of the business committee,
agreeing to support and urge the re

supremacy of the Free School System,
and also recommending a meeting of
the Readjusters of the State in the

be named, "for the purpose of organ

The Finance Committee of the
House had a four hour session last
night on the subject of
A CONFERENCE OF THE BONDHOLDERS.
After long and heated discussion a
bill was reported to the House asking
the principal bondholders to visit
Richmond on the 15th of January, to
confer with the Finance Committees
of the two Houses. It declares that
we cannot accept their recent offer
and will treat with them only "on
the basis of principles of the Barbour
Bill." It is not in the least likely
the bill can pass before the holiday
recess. There is some difference of
opinion about the propriety - of the
invitation. Some of the members
fear it may result in a settlement that
may necessitate an increase of taxa
tion. Others beb'eve it will result in
no settlement at all, and that it wil
merely demonstrate the fact that the
bondholders do not mean to make
any settlement that will be satisfacto
ry and just to the people of the State
who are eternally urging that an ef
fort should be made for a settlement
by negotiation, to play their last
card. This would clear the deck of
rubbish and leave the naked question
tor the people to deal with. They
would then know what they would
have to to do at the next fall election.

FATAL TERMINATION OF A FAMILY
FIOUT.- A MOTHER. AS.D FATHER
KILLED AND A DKOTIIEtt AND SIS
Through a gentlemen who return
ed yesterday from Hancock
county, we learn the particulars
of the most horrible tragedy evr
enacted in this section. Tne difficul
ty originated in the family of J.N
Epperson, who lived five miles north
east of Thorne Hill. Hancock county.
Epperson and wife, it appears, sep
arated some time eii.ee and the hus
band stayed away until Wednesday
last. Upon his return a fiitt be
twen himself and wife cued, dur
ing which John Epperson, a one
armed son, interfered to protect bis
mother. In the affray the father,
armed with a knife, iiifl ctcd several
serious wounds upon the son, who
subsequently gained possession of
the weapon and killed his father
Immediately after this, Torn Epper
son, another son, came up and asked
his brotliei John if he took his f i
titer's p-trt in the fifiht. To thi
John replied that he protected his
mother. Thereupon Tom immedi
ately fired on his brother, who ran in
to the house. The mother here in
terfered to protect her oneurmed
son, and while endeavoring to do so
as 'shot through the hear!.' As
the feli lifeless in the doorway Tom
fired at his brother, missing him how
ever, ad 6trikng another brother,

Edison'a patent for a ditisable
eleetric light would have been issued
Wednesday, as it has reached the
last fctage, its issue hating been
ordered, and only needing the pay
ment of the final fee. Until this is
paid the Commissioner of Patents
withholds hi signature. Edison's
delay in this matter is due to the
fact that the conditoo of his applica
tion fir patents in Europe are so sit
uated that publicity might hinder
their issue. By delaying the pay
ment of the final fee(and this delay
can be continued six months), the
patent remains secret, while ready
for issue any moment.

Never Marry a Man vlio Drinks.
The writer who said that, said all
in a few words. It is a niottJ that
every girl might ive written upon
the wallof the peaceful little chamber
where she dreams, and she often
makei up her mind to marry the
"de.r, good fellow," whose only fault
is taking a glass too much now and
then and reform him after marriage.
It is all the more necessary that it
should be written there, because the
men who '"drink" are by no means
the worst men in the world. We
know that generous, warm-hearted
men, men of intellect . and men of
power, have found the temptation too
bard to withstand, and that many a
man otherwise contemptible and
wicked, baa never had a. glass too
much in his life; although it is also
rui th4t under the influence of liq.

thought of which sicken their souls,

By this time there were three or four
others watching the boy. He nut on

he had only done this man a kind
