and in somo way tho overseer
gut hold of a largo Amount of tho old
man's monoy. With this secured, ho
at onco circulated a story that the old
gentleman had gone stark mad, and
that careful treatment in nn insane
npylum would bo tho only remedy for
him. So skillful was the whole thing
managed, thut upon the testimony of
a bribed physician, tho old planter was
placod in the hands ot a guard, who
was instructed to accompany his
chargo to tho uisano asylum at Nua'j

old gentleman took tho . Nashville

the prisoner, seeing thut his protesta

tho ears of all, resolved to attempt tt
escapo, aud at it moment when tho
guard hud relaxed the strict vigilance
which had been previously kept up,
hojumped from tho car and was soon

carry out instructions given him. In

upon the cars, when tho later coolly
drew u pietol and warned the rolnt

man, however, enlisted the sympathies

would be captor wai compelled to in

Union and Dispatch, 20th.
The Washington dispatches of this
morning say that in tho Supreme
Court of tho District of Columbia a
little case, in volving a great principle,
wo decided yesterday. Judgo Wylie
declared, in his opinion, that tho com
bination ot physicauns to regulate aud
preauribo the amount of their foes was
an illegal combination, and he accor
dingly reduced a physician s bill against
the defendant in the caso before him
to an umount equal to his previous
charges about onc-hulf of tho attemp
It is possiblo that this is good law.
If it is it applies to all trades, unions
aud similar combinations. An analo
gous caso arose- in tho courts of New
YorK a few years ago, and was deci
ded on similar principles. It is a
coincidence that it also occurred in the
medical profession. A county medical
society, an incorporate and olliciul
body, piipscd resolutions that it should
&o considered dishonorable for any
member of tho society to tako and
hold tho offices of tho physician to tho

lie wits promptly expelled from the
society at thoir noxt mocting, an ex
pulsion wlncli technically deprived
him of tho legal rights conferred by
membership. In fact he was no -longer
a 'regular" physiciun, according to
Ho brought suit in the Supreme
Court for restoration to membership
in the society. The latter employed
able counsel and resihted bis applica
tion oil. tbo ground that they bad n
right to choose their company and do
cido oil tho qualifications of their own
members. But tho court grunted n
niandvmus compelling ' tho society to
rcceivo him back, on ground almost
identical with that on which tho decis
ion of Judge Wylie, mentioned above
is bated. It was declared that the
combination of tho society to fix fees
and coerco its members was an act of
public injustice in a word it was an
illegal combination, jntortoring wiin
personal liberty, and destructive to
that healthful competition which is
tho life of business. Physicians had
no right to interfere, as ft body, with
tiny private contracts that individuals
might choose to make, luo jurist
win rendered tho decision (Judge
Marvin) gavo the subject rt very care
ful study in tho light ot common law,
and was, moreover, a man of groat
learning and purity of character. He
is now, wO btifiovo, onoot tho Judges of
the Court of Appeals in New lork.
It has boon affirmed, in ono case
that such combinations have no bind
ing elfect upon the members consent
intr to them, and that any attempt to
disgraco or punish a person for viola
ting SUCh H hni-iKttin is llt"Krtli J1'
a peeond enso, that fee-bills r tariff
so fixed have no value in tho law, but
may bo reduced at tho option of tho
court to what it may consider ft rea
sonable charge. Iu tho New Noi k
ea60, however tho opinion went fur
ther, and declared all such combina
tion to bo contrary to the public good
in other words, nuisances to bo a
bated under the law. If it is true us up
plied to doctors, it is equally true as
applied to ull mechanical trades; and
it is a question tor tno lawyers to Bot
tle whether tho compulsory measures
emnloved bv tho trades' unions to. pre
vent tho birini? of certain kinds of
hands, or to interfere with privato

contracts, are not also illegal and good
causes for action in tho law. It is true
that tho unions very ' raroly resort to

Supposoa bunder to have taken
contract, and to bavo employed his
labor orf terms which would j-eild him
a ptofit. Suppose that theso laborers
are then ooorced by others, not them
selves parties to tho mutual contract,
and so intimidated by throats of so
cial and business ostracism as to de
6ert their work, thns subjoctlng them
selves and thmr employers' to serious
loss. In such a case tbo same - rules
of law involved in tba two dioisione
wo have introduced, would givo to tho
losing partica a legal remedy against
thoso who occasioned tho loss. And
probably tho reason that no such suits
nro brought is because the influences
empioyod to interfere in such contracts
are so intangible and difficult, of proof
that tho evidence must in nearly all
cases bo deficient.
The subject is one of grei.t interest,
and iucludcs within itself some of tho
most intricate of social . probloras.
J here is so much of right on each tide
that tho public press, usually shrunk
from its dicussion, so as to allow the
experiment to work itself out.- Per
haps this is really the wiser .course.
It must come at last to the arbitra
ment of necessity. The laws of de
mand and supply will control the
question. If wages are no high that
men cannot aflord to build, they will
bury their money in the various so
cut ities which are offered, instead of
investing it in real estate, and thud de
mand for labor will diminish until it
comes into the markotata price which
will command a sale. Xewark (iV. J.)
A Speech by Charles Dickens.
Mr. Dickens presided at the annual
dinner of the Railway Benevolent
Society of England, on tho 5th int.
Iu proposing tho toast of the evening.
Mr Dickens said: There is a story
once told me by a friend of mine, which
seems to my mind to have a certain
application. My friend was an Amer
ican sou Captain, aud, therefore, it is
quite unncccssry to nay his story was
qnito true. Laughter lie was Cap
tain and part owner ot t largo Ameri
can merchant liner. On a certain voy
agoout, in exquisite summer weather
be had lor cabin jasscngcrs ono
boatiful young lady and ten more or
less beautiful young gentlomen.
Light winds or dead calms prevailing,
tho voyago was slow. They had made
bait their distance when tn.s ten young
gentleman wcro all rcndly in love with
the oeautitui young Jady. They had
all proposed to her, and bloodshod
among the rivals seemed imminent
pending in tbo young lady's decision
Laughter. In tins extremity tho
beautiful young lady confidod in my
friend the captain, who gavo her dis
creet advice. He said. "If yonr
ufTections aro disengaged, take that
ono of tho young genllomuu whom you
like the best and settle tho question."
Laughter To this the beautiful young
ady made reply: "I cannot do that
because I like ther.i equally well."
Laughter. My friend, who was a
man ofresource, hit upon thisingenious
cxpediant, said be: "Tc-moirow at
mid day, when lunch is announced, do
you plunge over boarJ, bead foremost.
I will be alongside to rescue you, and
take the ooo of tlio ten who rushes to
your rescue, and then yon tan after
wards bavo him." The booutiful
young lady highly approved, and did
accordingly. But after sho pluugod
in, nino out ot ten moro or less beauti
ful young gentlomon plungod in after
her loud laughter and the tonth
remained and shod '.ears -loud laugh
ter lookiug over the aide of the
vessel. They were all picked up and re
stored dripping to the deck. Laughter
Tho beautiful young lady upon seeing
them said: "What am I to do? See
what a sight they are in. How can I
possibly cliooso, because every one of
them is wet?" Laughter. . "Then"
said my friend, tho captain, acting
upon a sudden inspiration, "tako tho
dry ono." Loud and continuous
!aui;bter.1 I am sorry to say that Bhe
did so, and they lived happy after
wards. Cheers. Now gentleman,
in my application of this story, 1 ex

institutions of this city. Somo little
girls carried it in to tho good Sisters,
who immediately docidod to caro for
the foundling until it waa reclaimed
or could be sent to the Orphan Asylum.
First, bowovor, it was - necessary to

purposo it was dispatched, in charge
of the institutiou.
.Arriving at his room, and announc

conducted them to the chup'.o. and

"Thou tako it out doors and exata

The girls departed and returned,
and in answer to the inquiry from the
eyosof tlio priest, one said "boy," and
bluidiod all ovor.
The cereiLony of baptism was then
completed, ond tho girls, with their
Christianized chargo bearing tho namo
of Saint ot the Day, returned to , tho
Sisters. They inquired tbo name; said
it was a nioe one, and hoped the child
would live to bo worthy tho namo it
bore, to all of which- the little girls
dutifully replied, "Hope so." It was
