for two years. At the expira

the son of a Southern states
man, and her parents tried to
compel her acccj)tance, whereat

gany mountains, iiear the head
waters of the Catawba, and
there, outlawed from society he
became a highwayman, and
speedily achieved a dreaded no
toriety, by the number and
character of his daring exploits.
The Governor of North Caroli
na offered $5.C0D for his arrest,
and many lured by the temp
ting offer, tried to hunt him
down. Suddenly he was miss
ed from North Carolina. It
was supposed that he had died,
or had changed his base of op
erations. One day at the first settle
ment of the fertile delta of the

St. FraUClS 1'lVCr, 111 HOW what
is Arkansas, an
peared in the district
inmseii donn inn. lie was a
handsome, amiable man, and
though having only moderate
means, extended a generous hos
pitality to all who visited his
beautiful little home, rendered
doubly attractive by the presence
of a beautiful wife. In a fhort
time he became the most popular
man in the settlement, and no he
continued for ten or twelve years.
He was repeatedly elected to the
Legislature, and there he was dis
tinguished for powerful and impas
sioned eloquence. He lecatne a
leader in the ranks of his party,
was a member of the convention
that framed the State Constitution,
and represented Ci? district in the
Senate of Arkansas.
Hill's most intimate acqu.iint
nancs were the Strong four broth
ers, men of wealth and ambition.
A close intimacy enranr" up be-
tween them, and in an unguarded
moment, made the eldest one con
versant with his previous history,
telling him that he was the noto
rious Nixon Curry of North Caro
lina. Strong then requested II dl
to resign bis seat ic the Senate,
but Hill refused, and the brothers
conspired to ruin him. Sending
to North Carolina, they procured
a copy of the reward ofiVn d for
his arrest. The four brothers,
powerful and determined as they
were, well knowing the character
of the man with whom they had
to deal, secured the assistance of
a dozen men, and surrounding his
bouse, attempted to effect his"
capture. Ou . approaching the
main entrance and demanding
his surrender, one of them was
shot dead, aud three others were
dangerously wounded,' and the
attack was abandoned.
The governor of Arkansas pub
lished an addit onal reward for
Hill's arrest, and hastily packing
a few articles he set out with his
wile and children for upper Ar
kansas, wbere he knew of the ex
istence of a band of desperadoes
whose numr-ers he had reaaon to
believe would protect him. He
was overtaken at Conway Court
House, and halting his wagon and
admonishing his wife and children
to keep their places, he. stepped
forth in the face of his pursuers,

and in a few eloquent words told
them why he bad quit North Car
olinaat the eame time assuriug
his pursuers that he Trould not be
taken alive. The gallantry of
the action operated in- his favor,
and the pursuit was abandoned.
Constant pursuit had already
made him morose and quarrelsome,
and he. began to drink heavily
and resdrted to the gambling table
for a support. One day iu S-p-tembey,
1844, while seated at
breakfast he told his wife that
he had a-premonition of death,
and felt that he should be killed
that day before sunset. He
called his son, William, to him,
a bright boy of. fourteen, and
made him swrear to kill the man
who . should kill his father. , ,
The Circuit Court of Pope
county being in session he at
tended it with a young man
named Howard, who was en
gaged to his eldest daughter.
As soon as they -reached the
village Hill began to drink and
exhibited an. unusual disposi
tion to quarrel. He insulted
every one he met and finally
threatened to clean the' Court
House; he dashed into the court
room, to the consternation of
Judge, jury and lawyers.
Young Howard tried to restrain
him but glaring like a tiger; he
turned upon the youth and felled
him to the floor, at the same time
drawing a pistol, he exclaimed:
"Kill me or I'll kill you!" The
man in a moment of ; extreme
anguish,1 drew a knife and; bu
ried it deep into the bowels of
Hill. He died shortly after.
Howard, -quit Arkansas, and
several years lateWwas heard of
in San Antonio, Texas, where
he joined. the confederate forces
under command of Col. Long.
At the clcse of the war he was
met by William 'Hill, who re
membering the oath he had. ta
ken, shot the former and fled to
Europe. He joined the French
army and served through the
Franco-Prnssjan .war, but was
subject to fits of temporary in
sanity. Finally his case became
hopeless, and he was placed by
his friends in an asylum near
Glasgow", Scotland, where he
very recently died. , ; ; ;
jp It is a sad. infatuation
that leads an immortal soul, to
whom the gospel brings the com
mand. "Son. go to work to-day in
my vineyard, to neglect in youth
the things which belong to his
ternal peace. With many the
day passes, and the night sudden
ly cometb, when no man can work,
aud no preparation to meet God
is made. Under such circumstat -stances
how solemn the words!
''But now they are hidden from
thine eyes" .the term of proba
tion is over, the opportunity for
redemption gone forever. To
day is stricken down the s'rong
young man, the beautiful young
woman, who yesterday were in
full health.' And . so it occurs
constantly. To day is thy day."

The following declaration and call,

In view of the continued and
increased depression of busines?,
resulting in the failure and bank

thousands of industrious Working
people, the continued shrinkage
of values, and the relative increase
of taxation, the vatst burden of
public and private debts relatively
increased by the depression of all
other values all produced, as we
bslievo, by a mistaken policy vl
financial legislations; therefore we,
the undersigned voters of Indian

the following demands upon the
Congress ot the United States:

he lived in Howell, Michigan.
The Boston traveler seeing that
his new acquaintance had no

thought the new railroad law
limiting the weight of tho bag
gage of each passenger to one
hundred and fifty pounds was
an imposition," and -prevailed
upon the Howell man to get a
check'for a large trunk filled
with Bostonian samples- as
though he owned it. Alter get
ting on the cars the Bo-ton chap
asked for the check of his trunk
and the Howell man refused to
disgorge. The agent thought
his friend wras merely joking
and laughingly - remarked-
"How easily you could entire
me out of that trunk," to which
the Howell chap answered ab
sently, "It would merely, be a
breach, , of trust." Thus the

Spend Your Money at
There are ten reasons why you
should spend your: money at
home. They are so forcible and
well put that we cannot refrain
from presenting them to our
readers, hoping they will give
them the consideration which
they deserve: v
1st. It is your home. jYou
cannot improve it much by tak
ing away money to spend it.
2nd. There is no wav of im
proving a place so much as by
encouraging ' good merchants,
good schools, and good people
to settle among you, ryid this
cannot be. done unless you spend
your money at home. "
3d. Spend your money at
home, because there is where
you generally get it. ' It is your
4th. Spend your money at
home, because when it is nec
essary for you to get credit, it
generally is of your town mer
chants you have to get it, and
they must wait for the money.
Therefore, when you have the
cash in hand, spend it at home.
5th. Spend your money at
home. It will make better
merchants of your merchants,
they can, and will, keep better
assortments, and .sell at lower
rates, than if the only business
they do is what js credited out,
while the money goes to other

Help lay the foundations for
them now.? It is a duty. It
may be your pride in after years
to say: "By trading at the
store 1 got my son a position as
clerk, now he is a proprietor."
Then you will think it hard if
your neighbors spend their mon
ey out of town. Set 11iq. exam
7th. Spend your money at
home. Set your example now.
Buy your dry goods, groceries,
meats, and everything at home,
and you will see a wonderful
change in a short time in the
business outlook of the place;
therefore, deal with your home
merchants. ' . .
- 8th. Spend your money at
home. What do you gain by
going oil? Count the cost; see
what you could have done -at
home by letting your merchants
havethe cash. Strike a balance
and sec if you would not have
been just as well off, besides
helping-your merchant. .

A week ago how beautiful!
- To-day how aere they lie!
The glory of the forest Add
Like splendor from the sky:
I trample on the fallen leaves '
- That yesterday, like gems,
Flashed brightness on my wondering eyes,
From countless d adems.
They answer to my heedless foet
With crispness in their tone:
"Tread lightly for the beauty's sake
Thine eyes in us have known;
We were but shadows, wheu we glowed
In crimson, of thy pride;
We still are shadows of it? fuR,
And just before it fclide!''
I would the withered leaves were fair,
That I might shun to tread
Their dying verdure m the dust
With which ray hopes fall dead:
For when, in crimson and in gold,
My ripon -d joys shall flame,
The brief, bright beauty of tho leaves
Is theirs to sore the sana.-!
