TTTP. VWrKKNTH AMENDMENT.
Tho fifteenth amendment i3 not mak
ing very rapid headway, opposition hav
ing arUen In unlooked for quarters. The
radlcnl legislature of Rhodo Island, for
hwtanco, alarmed at tho boldness of con
gressional usurpation, and tho number
and peculiarities of tho later constitu
tional amondmenUt, Iiob postponed ac
tion upon tho subject until tho noxt sos
slon. Tho Provldonco 'Journal' ex
presses this apprehension as follows:
"Tho people do not feel qulto sure that
this will bo tho first amendment they
will bo called upon to adopt tu tho con
Htltutlon of tho United States. Tho next
thintr they may bo called upon to roll n
nulsh may bo their equal renresoinulluu
to tho senate And abovo all, while this
State concedes to tho fedorat govern
ment sovereignty as to tho povvere tbf.t
government, tho peoplo adhero with te
nacity to tho sovereignty of luo state as
to tho powers not delegated to tho feder
al government. It is unclean to deny
thlH fact. This was tho faith of tho grand
fathers of tho present generation, and

ANNEXATION OF NEW BR UNfS
WICK, N. S. ,
A motion was recently made In tho
Legislature of New lirunswlck, N. 8., by
Mr. Cudllp, In favor of annexation to tho
United Suites. Ho declared that tax
ation Is Increasing without any corre
Hpondlng benefits, and tho people are
leaving by the hundred for the United
States. Tho lawmaking power should,
nsaprovldenco, seek to carry out what the
people oro doing Individually, ami ink
tho United States to admit New Uruns
wick In tho Union, on fair and equitable
terms. Ho added: "Particularly as tho
peoplo are forced to tho conclusion that
the nature of their productions and tho
geographical position of tho country
point to tho republic as their natural
market, and ai can be most Mirely ob
tained by union with tho United Slates
It Is moved that a committee be nppoln
ted to duvlsu ways and means to carry
out tho proposition," Tho Attorney
General objected to tho motion at treas
onable, and tho House refiiteu to allow
it to bo entered in the Journal.

Tho Frankfort Hydrophobia Case
From the Now Albany Le dgor, 31st.
Dr. Neat baa kindly shown uu a lotter
from a friend at Frankfort, Ky., giving
Bomo further particulars in regard to tho
hocking death of Mr. Sargont in that
placo from hydrophobia. Wo quote:
Last September a llttlo boy up stairs
over his meat store bad, as supposed, a
mangy pup, abeut as big as a half-grown
cat. It wus at the storo door,1 and Sar
gent gave it a ploce of meat and stroked
it on tho head. The ungrateful pup bit
him on tho thumb Just stuck a tooth
through the skin so that by squeezing
tho wound a drop of blood camo. Noth
ing was thought or it. Tho pup died
In a few days, howover, as was supposed,
from mango or lice. Sargent never
thought of tho clrcumstauco again. .On
last Friday evening he felt slight ting
ling in his hand, as If it was asleep,
which grow to be more uncomfortable
Saturday, no thought he was to bo para
lyzod, but attonded to business all day
felt a llttlo headache. At olght o'clock
ho closed his store, weut homo, and at
eleven felt a constant desire to havrk and
spit; fell very uncomfortable, but In no
pain; would halloo out; rolled his eyes
and throw his head back. His wifo be
came alarmed; sent for Rodman ami
Homo of her neighbors to control him.
Tho Dr. saw him; gave him morphine;
did not suspect hydrophobia; grew moro
frantic all night. About ten o'clock
Sunday morning tho peculiar slobbering
and spitting and dread of water camo on.
Then was discovered what ailed him. I
think nothing was given after that, as
ho could swallow nothing. Every doc
tor in tho county, almost, saw him. Tho
cry spread like wild-fire, and his houso
was tilled by hundreds up till be died.
His convulsions were ao vlolont that It
took four men to control him. He hawk
ed and spit miraculously Just a white
froth. Ho Bcemcd to suffer the agony of
tho damned. His head would be drawn
back until It would rest on his backbone.
His eyes would show only tho white,
while tho lids would bo extended very
wide. To describe his looks and suffer
ings Is not lu tho power of words. It was
agony Increased a thousand fold; but
straugost of all, he was rational all the
time; know everybody ; talked of death;
prayed; transacted business perfectly be
tween convulsions. When they would
begin to come on ho would know it, and
eay, "Hold me, hold me." Ho died in
about twonty-slx hours from tho time ho
quit business on Saturday night
A TcnHMM Uhoat N lor jr.
From the Knoxvllle Whig.
The following Is from one of our cor
respondents In Fentress county. It is
certainly a mysterious affair. Hsaders
will form their own conclusion:
Oil the eveulngof the 31st ult, about
one and a half miles south of Jamestown,
a young lady by tho name of Albertsou.
distinguished for her piety, prudence ami
veracity, had occasion to go to tho spring
a short distance from her father's resl
deuce,about the time thosun wan setting;
and, as she states herself, never thought
of being afraid, for she was always char
acterized for courage beyond her sex.
Miss AlberUon went tripping along the
frequented path, apprehensive of no dan
ger whatever, carrying a bucket on each
arm and singing a favorite song. When
she reached the spring, It beiug a small
stream, sue had to wait some tlmo for
ber buckets to bo replenished; so she
placed tho vessel under the spout, sat
dowifon a stone, near by, still singing,
and on arising to receive hor burden and
wend her way home, she law standing
before hor the figure of a man, with arms
extended upward shining as a fiamo of
fire. The girl says the light which was
reflected from this mysterious visitor
gleamed and sparkled against the snow
on the hillside before ber. While she
stood tremblingly gazing upon the radi
ant image It spoke in a clear and audi
ble tone, "Be not Afraid;" then it began
to ascend and was soou lost in tho dis
tance above the trees. The girl made
haste to evacuate ber position, reaching
homo In a few minutes, exhausted, pale
and trembling, relating the circumstance
to her parents, and cannot since bo pre
vailed upon to revisit the scene of so
much terror to her unless quite a number
of persons accompany her.
No one has been ablo to comprehend
or oven conjecture what the strange vis
itor was or what was Its misslou. No
one has tho slightest Idea that tho youug
lady dissembles In regard to the mys
terious figure, because they know she is
incapablo of anything so wioked or de
basing; therefore we leave it to the
thinking community to demonstrate
The Lnttj Kx-Hnyor Harper, sf 2fw Terfc
Ex-Mayor James Harper, who was
thrown from his carriage in Fifth avenue,-
ou Thursday evening, died Satur
day. He was senior member of the great
publishing firm of Harper & Brothers,
and was born in Newton, L. I., in 1705.
He learned the art of printing In New
York, beginning at the age of sixteen,
and on attaining his majority, with bis
brothers entered upon the business lu
which the firm subsequently made a
world-wide reputation. The brothers set
their own type and worked their own
presses in their earlier days; but in after
years their laoreaslng business forbade
their giving attention to its details. In
1844 Mr. Harper was made mayor of this
olty, and in that position his remarkable
business capacity was as conspicuous as
In his private affairs. In October, 1853,
the Harper's Buildings, nine in number,
were burned to the ground, and Mr.
Harper having been asked the next
morning bow muoh the firm Intended to
pay their creditors, replied. "One
hundred cents on the dollar." They
paid dollar, for dollar, and then
ereoted the magnificent Are-proof
buildings which they now occupy.
Nobody dreamed of the vastness of
their resources until, losing 11,000,000 in
one Are, they asked no aid, and immedi
ately erected a million dollar printing
and publishing establishment. Mr. Har
per retired from active business about
ten years ago, and was known as one of

A few years ago Laurence Ollphant,
who went to England as the Secretary of
tho Japaneso-MIsslon, mado a deep im
pression on the fashionable and politi
cal world by his brilliant talents. He
was comparatlvelyunknown, but in a
few months took all hearts by storm. He
obtained a seat in Parliament, moved in
tho highest circles ofBoclety, and was
tho uuivorsal favorlto of tho world of
fashion. He was once seen sauntering
into tho Travelers' Club, with two men
leaning on his arms oae. His Royal
Highness the Prince of Wales, and tho
other, His Majesty tho Prince of Don
mark. Such as that which lays boforo this
handsomo, clover, fascinating young
diplomatist, says an English paper, any
man might have envied. Suddenly,
howover, Laurence Ollphant was missed
f rom his-place In society from club, and
"House," and operu. Whero he had
gone, nono could tell. Even his constit
uents at Sterling were unable to get any
accurate information concerning him,
and as he mado no appearance at tho
recent election, another man was chos
en in nls place. Io lias at last been dis
covered, howo.wr, lu a seml-rellglous,
semi-socialistic community at Brotoon,
on the border of Lako Erie, where the

It seems to bo very certain that tho
fifteenth proposed amendment will not
be ratified, at least this year. Tho rati
fication by Missouri Is a nullity. Minne
sota, Ithodo Island and Ohio have post
poned the matter; so will It be with In
diana. Georgia has refused; so, we be
lieve, have New Jersey and Delaware.
Neither Maryland. Kentucky, Califor
nia nor Oregon, will ratify It at least at
present. Hero are eloven States which
either refuse to ratify, or postpono tho
subject If the consent of tho three un
reconstructed States Is not asked, It will
require the ratification by SO out of 35.
Tho uou-ratiflcutiou by eloven States de
feats the amendment. If their vote Is
asked for, the assent of 28 State legisla
tures Is required; and at present only
that of 23 can Do looked for. In every
popular point of view, the fifteenth
amendment will not bo Incorporated in
the organic laws of tho country tho pres
"The Lord deliver us from witches
and warlocks and long-nebbed things."
The Providence 'Press' says tho ex
queen of the English gipsies, who ar
rived in this country recently, Is to
organize the 12,000 gipsies, who have
come here at different times. They will
be located on lands they have purchasd.
They gipsey population, though poor to
look at, are rich in fact, and we shall
soon bear of a society more honorably
celebrated than that of the Mormons,
governed by their owu laws and rulod
over by a real queen.
In old Jesse's life of his distinguished
sou, we find It noted that "when Ulysses
was a boy he was fond of receiving mon
ey and presents " Verily, If Ulysses Is
not greatly belied, he has not outgrown
this fondness. It hangs to him.
The hold of radicalism upon Cincin
nati has relaxed, and now that city is in
the hands of men who havo ideas above
that of pelf and plunder. Moses F. Wil
son defeated the regular radical candi
date for the office of prosecuting attor
ney. The citizens' candidate for city
commissioner and city treasurerdefeatcd
the radical candidates, whllo tho city
council, heretofore overwhelmingly rad
ical, will stand about equally divided.
Upon the whole It is a crushing radical
defeat that gives promlso of tho early
entlro redemption of Cincinnati.
