Qiimy, III., November 21. Anx'ety
about securing a crop of ice here during the
winter is already beginning to be manifest
ed. The old stock is nearly exhausted, and
the brewers have very little left. The en
tire space for cutting ice in Quincy bay has
already been leased, and more ice-houses
are up than can be filled from the surface
of the bay, unless the winter proves to be a
very hnid one. To provide against the con
tingency of an open winter, ice barges are
being shipped to various points up the river
with n view to being loaded there if needed.

AFTER FRANCIS MURPHY. J
There is a fierce row going on among the
temperance folks of New York city, in
which the notorious Fruna is Murphy is a
conspicuous character. He has his follow
ers and defenders; but the class arrayed
against him are terribly in earnest, and
some of them heap ujain his head the most
scorching abuse, and tirades of denuncia
tion that are' growing hot and hissing.
Among others Mrs. Emma Gates Conkliu
comes to the frout, and addressing a large
audience of temperance people, deliv
ered herself almut us follows:
It was useless, she said, to get out of pa
tience with Mr. Murphy. She had attend
ed his meeting Suinlay evening, and was
greatly perplexed on hearing his unkind
remai'ks about Mr. Gibbs. At one time
the Helping Hand ussochtion had desired
to support him, and had passed resolutions
to that effect. Hut the association had
learned unmistakably that it was less the
cause of temperance than of Francis Mur-
iihr hiinselt that he had t spoused, lie was
the alpha and omega of his own work. 1 le
must have scn the resolutions passed by
the Helping Hand, and dotiiitless he liked
them, because above all else he liked flat
tery not quite ulxive all else though, he
liked money better, lie w is satisfied when
he could get fiOO for talking for a few
minutes to a drunken man; but who had
ever seen Lim look after that drunken man
afier he hud went out of the door. He
cared nothiiig w hat became of the poor fel
low afterward. His work was done when
he had induced him to ntlix his signature
to th" pleiLre, and whether he kept it or
not was the exclusive business of the sign
er. The peak"r said that she had known of
a drunken woman who went to one of Mr.
Murphy's meetings, and was there persiia-
: i i to iiiefn tiic pp'iiire. i uai was a grano
tiling for Francis Murphy; but did he or !
iv of his delegates go with that woman
to her home to comfort and sustain her?
Not one of them. They left her altogether
to Imt ow n resources.
.Mr. Murohv's assertion that the Helium.' 1
II 1 Association hud taken fees at the i light cannot be so bright, but the organs
door of the Cooper Union was utterly false f sight may be so much more suscepti
s'.io xiid. A collection had, indeed, been ble us to make the vision quite as good; the-
taken up to dei'rav cxp"i!sos, for without i
this no meetings could beheld. It would
Ire well if Mr. Murphy was contented with
this means of obtaining the money needed
fur his work. Hut he took all he could
get from the signers of his plcdgis and put
il into his own pocket. It was quite time,
Mrs. Conkliu said, that Mr. Murphy rose to
explain. She did not think that lrfv:i
perfectly sincere in his work. She krtw'
that he lived high, and spent a great deal
of money that might be better employed. I hemisphere. 1 here is tor cxaiiinie, a south

THE NED FjUNTLINE-l'()!!TERFIELD
The Kentucky papers have revived the
Ned liuntlinc alias .hubon and Portertield
affair, that took place in Nashville nearly
forty years ago. The Paducah News gives
the following version, whici is, iu the
main, correct. The News says:
Judson killed Portertield at Sulphur
Springs, near Nashville, after Portertield
had shot at him twice, in open .daylight
and not at night, as the fVinmcrehii cor
respondent has it. Judson was arrested,
ttikcu to the Court-house, tried and nvqult
ted. As he left the Court-house an excited
mob, headed by Portcifleld's brother, pur
sued him across the square. As he ran to
the old City Hotel, and before reaching
the door, at least ten shots had been tired
at him. When he entered the door he
stumbled, throwing his head forward just
in the nick of time to escape a bullet from
a pistol w hich exploded so close to his
head us to burn off his hair. He was
closely pursued up stairs and ran on the
second story porch which was covered with
lattice work. To get away from his
pursuers he attempted to climb
down the lattice work, but when
about half way down lie fell to
the pavement. Some friends in the
crowd then hurried him off to jail to pro
tect him from tho mob. After dark the
mob took him out of jail and hung him,
but some friend cut the, ropu and he was
spirited away, by whom no one knew how
or where. While this was transpiring at
Nashville Judson s wife was lying at the
point of death at Mctiraw'g hotel at Smith
land, where she had been shrvly dying of
consumption, most of her wants being pro
