TnE Washicg'on correspondent of the
Louisville Courier-Journal writes, July
JO; "Mr. Sumner and other prominent
Liberal politicians regard Grant as a candi
date for a third term, and believe that the
future energi'5 of the Administration will
be directed to that cud. The silence of tie
Government organs on the point is consid
ered significant, as they would certainly de
ny and discredit it unless they knew it to
be true. For the preset thsy do not de
sire to have the subject discussed."
HOW IT HAPPENED.
It app3ars that Grant has appointed Mrs.
Sultana S. Farrell as Postmistress at Cov
ington, Ky. This lady, it is sUted by the
Cincinnati Commercial, has been for some
months the amanuensis and assistant of the
late Pos'master there. The Washington
correspondent of the Cincinnati Commercial
says, July 9:
'The claims upon the President for favor
of Mrs. Sultana S. Farrell, who was to-day
appointed Postmistress at Covington, Ken
tucky, to succeed Jesse R. Grant, the de
ceased father of Gen. Grant, are stated in
her letter of recommendation, which is
signed by several well known persons, tobe
that she is the widow of the former Lieu
tenant Colonel of the Forty-first Kentucky
Regiment, who served with some
distinction in the Union army, and
who at the time of his death was Super
intendent of the Kehtucky Central
Railroad, besides being the only daughter
of Capt. Sebree, one of the first and eldest
pilots on the Ohio, Cumberland and Ten
nessee rivers, who piloted the tin clad
steamer R. B. Hamilton at Forts Donelson
and McHenry, at Tittsburg Landing, and
up the Yazoo river, and who from disease
contracts J in service died at the termina
tion of the war. Mrs. Farrell is represented
as the posse. sor of tact, energy and busi
ness capacity beyond what is usual with
ladies, well educated, and cspable of adapt
ing hereelf to the duties of the office to
which she has been appointed as readily as
any person unacquainted with them, and
discharge them with order and satisfaction
to the people of Covington. The salary cf
her office is $3,400, and her bond S20,000.:'
Tho Cincinnati Enquirer says the ap
pointment "was a very graceful thing on
the part of the President."
Austerlitz killed Pitt as surely a3 Trafal
gar killed Nelson. Each died lor his coun
try, but the country mourned more deeply
for the great Admiral, stricken down in bat

THE CRIMINAL CALENDAR.
The Goodrich Mystery Solved.
Kato Stoddard Confesses the Deed.
Full Pnrtlcalnrs of the ITlnrder.
New York, July 11. The death of
Charles Goodrich Is no longer a mystery.
He was shot by Minnie Waltham, alias
Kate Stoddard, on the night of the 21st of
March. Being arrested on Tuesday last,
Made a Fnll Confession
of her guilt to the police authorities of
Brooklyn. Search for the murderer has
been unremitting. Not only has Brooklyn
been searched, but New York, Philadel
phia, Boston, Baltimore, Washington, and
a countless number of smaller places. The
primary object of the search was the woman
Stoddard, but so little wa3 known about
her personally, that at the commencement
there was next to nothing to work upon.
The photograph obtained represented Kate
as a pleasant looking blonde of 30, with
moderately full face, sparkling eyes, light
some expression and buoyant manner,
while Kato Stoddard, as arrested, was
Thin and Emaciated.
Only ono person who know her positively
could ba found Mies Mary Handley but
for more than six weeks after the murder
that person was laid up iu bed, silk. Kate
Stoddard was met by Miss Handley in the
street on Tuesday last. Miss Handley was
going to New York, and Kate Stoddard
was evidently coming from it, when the
meeting by accident took place. As soon
a3 she met her, Miss Handley recognized
her and followered her until she met a po
lice officer, whom she induced to make the
arrest. It became of the first Importance
to find where she had come from. This
she declined to tell. Brooklyn was searched
for a house whence a woman hd heen
missing since Tuesday morning. This re
sulted in the discovery that in a house in
High street, between Jay and Bridge, such
a woman had been missing. The woman
who kep the house was taken to the sta
tion house and identified her as her board
er, and had been living there since April.
Her trunks were seised and opened, and in
them was discovered property of Goodrich,
including a watch and chain, and a flnger-
rincr, a seal, and a DOcKot-Dooi: with $10 in
bills, believed to bo

welfare of their daughter. There is noth

Tho statement of the Womnu Herself
to the police: She had been living with
Charlie, as she called the deceased and was
greatly attached to him. He wanted to
cist her off, but she loved him so much that
she could not leave him. She entreated on
her knees that he would allow her to re
main, but ho was firm and, in fact, brutal
in his treatment of her, and the Thursday
before the Friday on which the body was
found, was tho day fixed for her to leavo

him further. She had remained in the
house all the previous evemng, and in the
morning when Goodrich got up, sho again

He was very angry and refused her re
quest or to hear her at all. Ho then went
into the basement at the front of the house
and proceeded to light a Baltimore heater
located there. The murderess says she
loved the man so much that she could no
leave him. When she saw him
Determined to Discard Her,
she worked herself up to murder him. She
had one of his revolvers in her pocker not
the one which tho detectives found lying at
the house beside tho corpse and while
Goodrich was stooping down on one hand
and knee in the act of lighting the heater,
sho drew the pistol and extending her hand
toward him said, "Charlie!" He looked up
Shot Him Threo Tlraee.
These wore the fatal wounds which the
postmortem examination diclosed. After she
committed tho murder on Thursday morn
ing, she waited all that day and night in tho
house watching it. On Friday morning
she had occasion to go to New York, and
early that morning she washed tha blood
from the face of the murdered man with a
tpwol which sho afterward rung out, and
which was also found damp by the polic?.
She it was who fixed the corpse as it was
discovered, and when she had done this she
went over to New York for something or
other, and was about to return to tho house.
On that Friday evening she came over Ful
ton Ferry, and ere sho had fairly put her
foot on the street, sho heard the news boys
crying out, "Extra I Murder of Chas. Good

New York, and the rest is known. Sho
"I Killed Kim forEovc.
I couldn't part with hiin." A reporter waa
informed that Kate Stoddard had attempted
to commit suicide, and went to the police
authorities, but they den ed any knowledge
of the matter. Coroner Whitebili, however
said she has not attempted suicide, but
there is no doubt she would if opportunity
presented. She has begged and prayed

was proven, to be left alonel "There is a

Eatcst Details from the Wreck.
Halifax, July 11. Steamer M. A. Starr
returned this morning from the wreck of
the City of Washington, bringing all cabin
passengers, and about 300 of the steerage
passengers. Dr. Wilson, Surgeon of the
ship, and several stewards, all the steerage
passengers, at u jw camn passengers were
transferred to the stoamer Falmouth, which
sailed for Portland. Tho steerage pajsen
gerswere very cheerful under the circum

tune in good part. Passengers who remain
behind go on by rail; several belong in New

and crew remain at the wreck until all
steerage passengers aro sent up here.
The steamer goes back to Port Le
bear for the remainder of tho
steerago passengers. They will bo forward
ed by rail to their places of destination.
The position of the steamer is much tho
same as previously reported. It -was verv
rough yestervay in the vicinity of the wreck,
as heavy swells from the southward in the

force and violence across tho bar where the
vessel lies. . This cmsed the vessel to lift

except the mizzen mast, which is still stand

and crow were eseaping from the wreck,
was swamped by tho heavy sea, but the
occupants wore rescued by a boat from the

divers and begun operations for saving the
cargo. It is thought the greater part of the
cargo will be recovered, though in a dam
aged condition.. All will probably bo

The Trial Concluded.
Fort Klauath, Oregon, July 10, via
Yiieka, Cala., July 11. The Military
Commission for the trial of the Modocs im
plicated in tbo massacre of Gen. Canby and
the Peace Commissioner concluded tieir
labors yesterday. Evidence for prosecution
was of the most positive character; leaving
no doubt of the guilt of tho prisoners.
The only evidence for the defenss
was Scarfaced Charley, Dave, Ono
Eyed Mose, and William. Their evi
dence amounted to nothing in favor of the
prisoners. It was simply a recital of what
tho Klamath Lake Indians had done an I
told them, the Modocs, since this tronblo
commenced. 'Che only testimony produced
by the prosecution, which was of no value,
was that of Mr. Dyar, Indian Agent, Kla
math Reservation. Ho could swear nothing
positively, except that he accompanied Gen.
Canby and the Peace Commissioner to the
council, but no doubt exists in the mind of
those who listened to the trial, but the
Commission will find them guilty of the
charges and specifications for which they
were tried. Soldiers aud citizens of the
place appeared to take a Uvply interest in
the trial. Tho prisoners also were very
attentive and seemed to rely upon the Com
mission for justice. Co!. Elliott, Col.

Half a century ago bellows making was a
thriving trade. Every house had its pair of
bellows, and in every well furnished man
sion was a pair hung by the side oi every
fire plac?. Ipswich, in Massachusetts, ac
quire i) quite a notoriety all over New Eng
land for the elegant and substantial articles
of tho kind it produced. But as stoves and
grates took the place of open fare places,
and as coal was substituted lor wood,
the demand for bellows diminished, until
the business s a separate trade quite died
The same is true of flint cnttinc. Flints
were once necessary, not only for fire arms,
but for tinder boxes, and a tinder box was
as necessary for every house as a gridiron
or a skillet. . Everyono who looks back to
childhood of forty odd years ago must re
member the cold winter mornings when, ihe
persistent c-sck, crack of the flint against
steel sent up from the kitchen an odor of
igniting trader and sulpner which pervaded
the house. I have no more idea what be
came of tho flint producers than of the old
man of sorrowful memories who, three or
four times a week, called at our door with
brimstone matches for sale at a cent the
half dozen bunche3. Both have as com
pletely vanished from England and Now

Then, asrain, aro gouo the pin makers,
who, though they have been In their grave
this quarter qf a century, still figure in lec3
tures and essays to illustrate the advantages
of division of labor. Instead of a pin tak
ing a dozen men or moro to cut, grind,
point, head, polish, and what nottas it neea
to do, pins are now made by neat littla ma
chines, at the rate of three hundred a min
ute, of which maohmea a single child at
tends to half a dozen.
Nail making at the forgo is another lost
Industry. Timo was, aud that in this nine-
teeth century, when t every nail was made
onihe anvil. Now, from 100 to 1,000 nails
per minute are mado by machines. The
nailer who works at the forge has but & bad
chance in competing with such antagonists,
and he would have no ohanoe at all were it
not that his naUs are ten fold toucher than
the former. As it is, the poor men follow an
all but hopeless vocation, and are compelled
to live in continual handgrips with poverty.
x the days of Presidents Madison and

"Perhaps the horse don't suit yon?"
"Oh, yes," said Barnes, quickly; there's
nothing tho matter with the horse; he's all
right. It's the price I object to."
"The price!" said tho stable-keeper.
'Why I only charjed you three dollars,
Colonel, which wo consider cheap for tho
horse's services all the afternoon."
"Well, I don't," squealed Barnes, rubbing
his aching body; for whenever 1 want any

Miss Barbara Rhinehart died of cholera
at Decatur, Meigs county, on the night of
i tne a insc.
The small pox has broken out in the
family of .Mr. Lewis, of Henry connty, and
one case nas proved fatal.
Wheat threshing has commenced in Brad
ley county, and tho Cleveland Banner says
tne yield is laiiing considerably below wh3t
It was anticipated the crop would make.
A white man and a negro had a fight at
Orange valley, in Henry county, a few day?
ago, during which the former cut the throat
of the latter, and but little hope is enter
tained of his recovery.
The Cleveland Banner of tho 11th inst.
says: On last Saturday evening this section
was visited by a heavy wind and rain storaa,
which did considerable damage to the corn
and oat crops. It was almost a hurricane
blowing down fences and trees in its course
The Shelbrville Commercial of the 11th
inst. says: We learn that Mr. Thomas Er
wln died of cholera, in Farmington, od
Wednesday last, making the fourth white
person that has died of cholera in that
place. Several new cases are also reported
The Kingston East Tennesseean of the
10th inst. says: We hear" great complaint
of the damage done the corn aud oat crop
by the heivyetorm of Saturday last. Wholo
fields of both corn and oats were blown
and beat down flat, and much of it utterly
The Shelbyville Commercial of tho 11th
inst. says: Many of our citizens, who be
came panic-stricken and fled tho town
some three weeks ago, havo returned.
Business is again assuming a lively appear
ance, and it will not be long before Shelby
ville will be hereelf again.
The Gallatin -Examiner of the 12th inst.
says: We have made general inquiry
through the county, the past week, with a
view of forming a correct opinion as to the
yield of wheat. In several sections the
yield has been an average one; in others far
below, and take tho county throughout,
we have estimated that it will average half
crop, but not of the bast quality. Many of
the fields have been affected by the "scab."
The Kingston East Tennesseean of the
10th inst. says: We have information that
a young man by tho name of Joe Schooler,
a son of John Schooler, formerly of Morgan
connty, attempted suicide on Wednesday of
last week, whilst walking along the road
near Wartburg, in company with several
friends, by shooting himself through the
body. Tho wound, although dangerous, is
not regarded as fatal. The only cause the
unfortunate young man assigns for so rash
an act wa3 that of family troubles, and, fe
ing tired of life.
The Shelbyville Commercial of the 11th
inst., says: The total number of deaths
that have occurred since the 21st of June
iu Shelbyville, is G2; 19 of which arc whites
and 43 colored. Wo may safely say that
cholera no longer holds sway in Shelbyville.
Weleam that near TJnionville, the families
ofMrs.flendonandMrs. McDowell, who
went from here to escape tho cholera, aro
all down with It. With sorrow we chron
icle the death of Robert Castleman, who
died of cholera last Tuesday, who lived
about nine miles South of this place. He
was a young man of excellent morals, and
leaves many friends and relatives to mourn
The Knoxville C&ronicle of the 10th inst.
says: From our friends in tho country, we
receive tho most encouraging reports as to
the growing crops. Oats aro now being
harvested, and were scarcely ever better.
Tho wet weather may damage the crops, if
not it will be an extraordinary large yield
throughout East Tennessee. Corn never
looked better It has grown rapidly during
tho past week, and one or two more rains at
tlie proper time, will insure a heavy yield.
Corn and oats will perhaps go far to making
up the falling off in the wheat and grass
A correspondent of the Knoxville Press
and Herald, who has traversed a good por
t on of upper East Tennessee, writes from
Blountville on the 0th inst. as follows:
"Every whore I find tho crops good except
the wheat crop, and that is certainly a fail
ure in part. Before it was harvested itwa?
thought to bo of good quality, but since tho
threshing process commenced, it is found to
be deficient even in this. There c&nnot be
a half crop, in my judgment. Oats were
never better. The crass crops are fine.
No fruit scarcely. Notwithstanding ail
these drawbacks, the farmers are cheerful
AS ADYEKTEEE WITH A WIEDCAT.
An unusual and very excitine contest
took place at the ranch of Mr. Ramon Felix,
on the Morrow Creek, about fourteen miles
from this place, ono morning last weeK.
It seems that Mr. Felix in tho morning
went out to feed his stock, and soon after
was startled by the cries of his wife and
family. Running to the house, ha found
that a largo wildcat had seized bVJ youngest
child, an infant by tbe back of tho neck,
and was making off with It. After a severe
straggle, he succeeded in rescuing it, tho
cat making its escape. Some time after the
excitement had subsided, an Indian boy
abcfti eighteen years old went out to bring
in some hotses that had been staked out
over eight some distance from the house.
jIO had been gone but a low minutes wnen
the family was again aroused by th8 cries of
the boy, who came rushing toward the
house yelling like a madman, with the ideu
tical cat that hadcansed tho first disturb
ance firmly seated upon his back, with its
teeth imbeded in tho back of hia neck.
Another desperate battlo ensued, which re
sulted in favor of the cat, which successfully
defeated the whole Felix family, killed their
two dogs, and retreated in good order to tha
house of Mr. E. M. iiowe, under wmcn na
ensconced himself, defying all efforts to dis
lodge him until night, when he escaped un
scathed. The wounds received by the In
dian boy wero quite severe and the people,
fearing that the cat was mad, thought best
to scarify tho wounds, which they did by
beating a crowbar, the only implement about
the premises that would answer tho purpose.
Considering tha ordeal of scratching, biting
and singeing tha boy passed through, ho is
doing remarkably well, and will be all right
again in a few weeks. San Louis Obiejo
