that some one connected with tho affair

bery was committed alter li o'clock yester
day morning, for about that hour Mr. Fry
was up t ) open tho door for his younger
brother who is employed at night on the
railroad, and then he saw that his clothing
was all rit;ht. Mr. Fry believes that the
burglars used chloroform, lor when he was
awakened yestor lay morning by his mother,
after having slept much longer than usual
and after repeated futile efforts to arouse
him, the room was yet filled a strange
odor. His clothing wms strewn about on
the floor, but everything else was undisturb

dow sill over which the burglars had pass
ed. The j ib was nicely done very evident

Pa lucah News : "Information roacln i

Turn an apt critic loose in tho mountains
and ho will look on thu glories with far
greater surpriso than ono unacquainted
with (ho harmony of art. If after this
reading you should bring a painting to him
for bis opinion it would seem flat and life
less. At thu entrance of somo wild canon
guarded on either side by tho cliffs stand
sentinels that have stood unwearied by tho
beating elements. While centuries have
rolled over them. They at onco remind
one of stupendous castlos with turrets
reaching to another realm. Their sides are
painted as never human mind and hand
have painted. No brush has touched, but
the ages that could not destroy have left
the mark of their flight. No Bhades are
lacking, there is a combination of every
hue and tint blends with tint.
There is utility in the beauty of the
rockie's. The artist finds it an endless
combination of form and color and tries to
put on canvass the impression that charms
hid eye, and tho result, though not highly
enough tinged and lacking tho rugged de
cisiveness of the original, is pronounced un
nattnal mid strained. It may be unnatural
because the brush aud canvass cannot re
produce tho stamp of divinity that is on the
hills, or in the blazing sunset, though the
critic who fives his opinion by rulo might
pronounce it. Somo artists never make
mistakes but they win k not on canvass,
their field is the face of nature.
To the very top of the rocky sentinel the
coloring goes and there is a lesson in the
fidelity with which every portion is finished.
Tho picture is complete a broadside of
warmth and harmony. At its base dashes
a clear stream of sparkling water. Its
song is praise Mich as the mute walls ex
press. In its innocent rippling down the
rocky bed it dashes itself harmlessly
against the innuui'jrablu bases, and being
ca.st go id n tturodly back, tl iws onward to
the valley singing its praiso of the beauties
above. As you turn to leave those two of
nature's rustic towers, you see a little flow
er, which as it peeps out from under the
shelter of its huge companion, brings to
mind the little popular sonu "I'eek a lioo."
How delicate it seems among the rocks, and
how uncongenial its companions, yet it
blooms at the foot of those towers, that in
their hugeness, are just as finished and as
finely wraughs. As the little blossom.
The sweet little flower looks pleadingly up
to you, as if to say: "Take me, I am loss."
With a new feeling at heart, you pluck it,
and hike it, with its lesson away with you.
Now you see I have been writing here as
if I intended to luve a book published. I
know I could not make a letter of it, and
I have not written near as much as I feel.
It seems that I could write forever, for
when I go out among the wondrous works
of nature and look up to their towering
heights, I become inspired, and as I grow
more familiar with them they became very
companionable, and I never tire of appreci
ating on their charms.
Calender's minstrels show here to-night.
Wish you were here to go with me.
Hoping to bear from you soon, I remain

A correspondent sign hiiiiHelf J. M
gives the following in the Weekly Kecord,
of New Madrid, Mo., as tho true account of
Darnall trouble with the mate of the
Vicksburg: "On the return trip of the
Vickaburg, W. L. Alexander, Esq., saw the
parties who had heaped upon Darnall such
uncalled for abuse, prepared witti pistol and
a heavy stick, witti which they evidently
intended to assault Darnall. The stick whs
not a walking-stick, hut larger arid shorter.
The passengers were told by an officer of
the bout, just helore landing at Darnall s,
that there would be serious trouble at Dar
nail's if he attempted to resent the vulgar
insult of the mate. ben the Vicksburg
landed at Darnall's Wednesday, the mate,
when addressed by Darnall touching the
matter of the vulgar language used by hi in
the previous trip in tho presence of his
( Darnall s) lamily, attempted to draw
pistol, when one of the Watson boys
standing near, who is Darnall's nephew,
presented his pistol ami told the mate to
put up bis hands. At the same instant
Darnall snatched a six-shooting Colt's re
volver from tho mate's hand, which ho bad
drawn halt way out of his pocket, and
threw it into the river. Watson then low
ered his pistol and placed it in his pocket.
Dan Watson then took an elm stick, not as
latirc as a man's wrist as stated in the Star
of July 27th, but ono inch in diameter and
two and a half feet long, with which he
genteelly chastised tho vulgar braggart
who had so wantonly abused his uncle ann
blackguarded his uncle's family. No
blows were struck tho mate save those by
Dan Watson and three by K. M. Darnall.
Dan Watson was told by big upcIo to stop
which be diil. Just then, while Darnall
was standing with his back to the boat,
two pistol shots were fired at him by the
officers on board tho boat. Uarnall then
went twenly steps to a log, behind which
waR a shot gun, the only ono on the bank,
which he took in his hands and wont on to
tho boat to ascertain who fired the shots
but failing to do so left tho boat after hav-
inu complimented tho parties who firea at
his back for the gallaut manner in which
thev Instantly fiod to a hiding place. The
mato was not taken on tho boat in an inBcn
sible condition, as stated by tho Star's in
formant and as stated by tho cptain of the
Helena, bat was up and going about in two
days after tho affray. All statements in the
Star or July avin, tounning me sunjoci or
this difficulty not in accord with the tte
moots herein contained, are incorrect. This
same mate, a few months since, entirely
without provocation, shook a large stick
over Dan Watson at a lsndinff above, and
threatened to knock his brains out, which
offense, doubtlesn, from rccont events, has
been drawing interost."
