to each juror. , . .
Mr. Hillis; If the government has objection
they can challenge, and then examine the juror,
and other witnesses. He had never heard of an
examination ef a juror without challenge.
The Court; These questions were allowed by
Judges Curtis, Kane, and Grier-and the ques

Fight with a Jaguar or American Tiger.
A correspondent of the Galveston News
gives the following account of a desperate fight
between Mr. Absalom Williams, who is about
seventy years of age, iiis wile, uim au enuiiuou
tiger, which occurred about the 1st ef Decem
ber, at Mr. W.'s residence:
The tiger was first discovered on the premi
ses of Mr. James Drake, who lives in the north
portion of Jefferson county, where it entered
his inclosiire, attacked his horses, and kilted
one, besides wounding two others. While the
tiger was committing its depredations, it was
discovered by Francis Drake, son of the propri
etor of the premises, who hrcd a shot gun at it,
wounding it in the side, but not dangerously,
when it made its escape. The next day, Mr.
and Mrs. Williams were startled by a strange
noise in the yard, in front of their house. Mr.
W., upon going out, discovered his dug engaged
with o tiger, when he seized an ox-yoke and
aimed a blow at the 'varmint,' but, missing i(,
struck his dog. The dog then got away from
the tiger and retreated. In an instant the tiger
sprung on Mr. Williams, and seizing him by the
hand, jerked him about twenty feet.
The old gentleman, finding himself in the
grasp of the wild animal, seized the tiger by the
throat with his other hand, and throwing his
whole strength forward, crushed the tiger to the
ground, hoth falling side by side. At this time,
Mrs. Williams came to the rescue with a gun,
which she snapped at the tiger, but there being
no priming in the pan, it did not go off. Mr.
W. then, with one arm around the tiger s body,

made another grasp at her head, his upper teeth
'penetrating at the top of the skull and sliding
along the bone, peeled otT the skin till they met
the lower teeth, which penetrated on the right
'side of her face.
In the meantime Mr. W. had seized the ox
yoke again, and giving the tiger a tremendous
blow, caused it to leave Mrs. W., when it
leaped into the house and got under the bed.
The door was immediately closed and the tnnn-
'ster secured. Mr. W. was exhausted from the
'effect of his wounds, from which the blood

We have yet to learn of the first bieelion to
the legal suppression of the traffic in liquor aa
a beverage, which, after a candid examination,
shall .be found to be valid and substantial.
The constitutionality of the movement is now
generally unquestioned by all whose opinions
are of value. Whatever the Stole Says is op
posed to the common welfare, the Slate has a
right to abate or destroy, is no new doctrine, and
was hot discovered to be strange or heretical
till within recent days; and the possession of
this power necessarily implies the possession
of all others requisite for its execution. Pro
hibition calls for the admission of no others. f
The only question it asks is, is the liquor trsffio
opposed te the welfare of the State? It is no
part of an answer to say that a man has a right
ta sell what he pleases, if other people choose
to buy. Where is the warrant for any such
right ? Besides, this and all other such asser
tions are in the face of the first admission, that
society has a right to protect itself; and to say
that a principle as old as society and as neces
sary as law, loses its character and becomes
oppressive and inHjuitous when applied to rum
selling, is simply absurd. The only pertinent
and legitimate question, then, is the one stated,
is rum selling a nuisance ? that is, does it annoy,
injure, the public or individuals ? If it does, this
fact itself is decisive as to the ability of society
to make an end of it. The only other legitimate
question is, should society exercise the right ?
This is to the expediency of the measure. Is it
expedient to make an end of rum selling? For
(he present we leave the question to the answer
ing of our readers. It seems strange to us that
there should be need to ask it.
While our thoughts were turned to this sub
ject, we noticed the following rraiont for total
yrohibUon given by the New York Tribune,
which we add as appropriate:
1. It is impartial. There can be no pretence
that such a law punishes little sins and sinners,
but gives impunity to rich ami respectable vice.
It has, at least, the merit of treating all offenders
2. It rests on a clear moral basu. Its funda
mental assumption is the immorality and evil of
the liquor traffic. It does not, like our License
Laws, assume that this traffic is pernicious and
dangerous and then give any one dispensation to
pursue it on payment of ten dollars. It does
uot pronounce the traffic immoral, and then at
tempt to confine it to men 'of giod moral charac
ter.' Bot contemplating and appreciating the
great fountain of crime, pauperism and misery,
it makes a manty, earnest and stratghttorward
effort to seal uf and siay it LUUi nicr fsr
ever. 3. can be enforced. License laws, espec
ially in great cities, neer can be; they rest on
no moral sentiment. No one can render a mor-
il reason why, if a man can afford to pay ten
lollars for a license, he should be allowed to
sell, while a man who lacks and cannot scrape
together that sum should not be. Thousands
are now selling without license in our city, but
ihose who know the fact will not complain of
them, because they have no means of distinguish
ing them from the licensed. If our License
Laws were meant to bo obeyed, they would at
least require every seller to display his license
conspicuously in the room where the traffic is
carried on; but being intended only as a blind,
and an anodyne for the public conscience, they
are constructed accordingly.
4. The Maine Law enibodieg no new princi
ple. It is simply the application to the insid
ious poison, Alcohol, ot llic common law prin
ciple wliicu regulates the general dispensations
of poisons. ro man is now at liberty to sell
Arsenic or Prussia Acid except to persons who
he has good reasons to believe contemplate an
innocent and salutary use of it. Tiie fact that
many imbibe Alcohol in ignorance of its poison
ous character, is an additional reason for strin
gent public safeguard against its pernicious
5. The Maine Law does its work. True, it
does not stop all selling, any more than our
laws against theft, forgery, and murder, prc-
vent absolutely the perpetration of those crimes;
out n rentiers me irnmc iniamous, ana uooms ii
to secrecy, stealth and darkness. It confronts
every tippler with the warning that he is ma
king himself an accomplice of olleiulers; it start
les every youth who may be tempted to take
his first lessons in dissipation, wilh the fact that
Public Conscience and Public Judgment deliber
ately condemned and stigmatised the traffic he
is ubetting. He who shall become a tippler in
dtli.ir.ee ot the Maine Law, can never plead ig
norance as an excuse, nor saddle Ins degradation

likely to return without finding anything to
justify the many reports and charges in circula

this be the result, from the muttering about

anxious to depose President Shsnkok, will
change their moJe of attack, and instead of ac
cusing him of teaching and inculcating sectarian
and nullification doctrines, it will be asserted
that he is not eligible to hold the office of Pres.

soever, shall be eligible to either house of the

ABOLITION lIKf AIHLM.
The 'Jerry Rescue' cases are to be tried at
the terra of the U. S. Circuit Court which com
mences at the City Hall to-morrow. Our read
ers are all familiar wilh the history of the res
cue ' of Jerry. . The hieh handed oulrnze. for
the commission of which Crandall, Loran, and
several others, were indicted, and are to stand
trial, was incited by the Abolitionists at Syracuse,
wnen holding one of their fanatical orgies. As
an illustration of the sympathies of those crea
tures, we find, what we are by no means sur-
prisou at, that in the lime ot the trial ot their
willing tools and victims they have utterly de
serted them, and eom polled them and their
counsel to pay all the heavy expenses incident
to attending upon Courts in various plaoes,
traveling fees, Stc, &u. Having effected their
objeet excitement, agitation, and a heinous
and indictable offence against the laws and the
Constitution of the United States they turn
the cold shoulder to their penniless victims, and
leave them to shift for themselves as best they
can. This is a perfect illustration of the character
of abolition fanatics and abolition sympathies.
They will go oil lengths in the rtscue or larceny
of a Slave, and let negroes at their own doors
beg and starve without lifting a linger to aid
Crandall, one of the persons indicted, and the
most active and notorious cf the Jerry rescuers,
soundly and savagely berates the whole hollow
hearted crew in a recent number of the Syra
cuse standard. He exposes them without
measure or merit to the contempt they merit.
" The Counsel in the Jerry Cases have not
been paid the amount of their expenses, and
they have no guaranty that they will ever re
ceive anything more, if they do anything more,
unless it be that the Defendants can pay, after
meeting their other heavy expenses. I say
this is disgraceful to the men in the county of
Onondaga, and the State of New York, who
pretend to be glad that order was restored at
Syracuse on the first day of October, 1851, by
the rescue of the man J tear.
For alleged participation in that act,
several men, poor in purse, if not so poor in
soul, have been over and over agriin dragged
away from their homes, no matter what the
profit or the demands of Ins business, and sub
jected to great expense.
Mow, can men who put on a face to declare
it bight to do a Christian act at peril, excuse
themselves when they see the men who did it
persecuted, and they look coldly on?
In this appeal, 1 do not reier iu Uto !
crew who tell you 'I am glad the nigger got
', bat I would dn nnvthinar about it.'
But I refer to those who say the res
cue of Jerry was right that they applaud it,
These are the people I mean, who are allow
ing the men who have been persecuted or pros
ecuted in this Jriar business, to stand alone!
I repeat the word it is 'disgraceful.'
I rejoice to be able to say, that the able men
who compose the array of Counsel have self
respect enough to say, that they do not stir
another step without some tangible guaranty for
just such charges as beforehand they are willing
to agree on."
Crandall certainly speaks plainly enough to be
. . J '. .r .
understood, and is understood, but he might just
as well set up a row uf rocks and talk to them,
as to preach or appeal to Abolitionists, after
they have effected their purposes.
- And it seems that the counsel for the defend
ants such men as Gerrit Smith, Gen. Nye,
and Mr. Hillis, have got enough of hard work
and no pay. An empty purse is a great absorb
er or sympathy, and particularly sympathy oi
that c1as lhat induced them to defendtlie res
cuers of Jerry. ' '
One of these oases was called on at 'he Uni
ted Stales District Court lost week, and the
prisoner, a negro, appeal ed, but his sympathy
sing counsel refused to, in all probability for
the same reason that Nye & Co. now refuse to
'stir another step' ne pay. The case was put
over to the circuit and the defendant, being ut
terly destitute, was obliged to apply to the Uni
ted States Marshall for the means to get heme,
and that officer gave Uim money for that pur
Maim Liquus Law. Petitions by scores
nre being presented to the Legislature of this
state constantly, from e.tery section, fur the
enactment of the Maine Liquor law, or one
somewhat similar. The subject lias ' many
friends in both houses, and growing more pop
ular every day. If it does not pass at this ses
sion, the day is not far distant when it will.

This stove has been thoronjrhly tested (torn eiifhf.'
eeu to twenty thousand have beeaseld in the last time
years. It has no equal for draft, durability, and nrat-r
ues of finish and design. In bakins;, broiling a4
boiling.it is superior to any other alove. it ks wry-,
easy to understand uing it, and it will do mom ba- "
kine, in less time, and with less fuel and trouble, and
will do it better, M is believed by Ihose who are ttrtnt '
it, than any other stove. It is well known Iv-all wh
have used the Prize Premium Stoves, manufacturer by ,
G. F. Filley, St. Louis, that the fire drawing tbrouja ;
under the oven, it consumes a large quantity of wood
ar.d soon burns out, making it very unprofitable for the
buyer. In the Prairie Slate Stoe all tb3e Objections

Scotch Pig Iroa -not of the Missouri Mountain Ironj'
it is well known to all who are acquainted with.. boa,;
lhat the Mouri Mountain Iroa M am at to aaaae
Stoves of, as it is too bard and brittle.: Tttat aeeeunts
for the breaking of the stovCs tfiinufscture ot'
that iron; we acknowledge that tbe Missouri Moitn-
tain Iron makes excellent bar iroa- The flues, apoir
which the responsibility and reputation of a stove
dejiend, ditler fiom any ever before used, aad are of
such a conduction and capacity as to insure tbe
most perfect draft. We are satisfied that the Prairie '
Siate Stove will lad twenty-five years, if properly
used. - It is nearly double the weight of any other
stoye or its sine in market. ' Purchasers will bear in-'
mind that it is always cheapest in the end Im bay a!
