A VISIT TO THK HOVAI,
From Thence to Hoiilh KeiisltiK
louWhere the Famous Museum
Ih luspecled and Home of Iih
Woiidi'm Hie Described.
London, July .'til, 1SS',).
Hditor Citizen: This is t lie day thai
we longed to have willi us all the hoys
and girls in HuiicoiiiIk.'. Of course we
thought of our own little ones eiiielly,
I ml still we 1 it wish lor all the others,
when we stooil in the centre of the hijj
Zoological Garden, in which there were
liunilreils of bright chiltlreii waiting their
turn to mount to the hack of one of the
largest elephants we ever saw, who
would walk with dignity up to the seal
fold erected for the purpose, allow his
precious luirdeii to alight, and wait pa
tiently until his hroad hack was covered
by another score of happy urchins, and
then march gravely away along the
paths, and lietwecn the beds of sweet,
bright flowers, until he thought these
had received their share of fun, anil then
go hack again to change his load. There
was a sort of fascination to watch the
huge least, so penile towards his little
friends and admirers.
There were several elephants employed
ill this way, hut none .seemed to give and
take the same degree of pleasure as the
one that we have described; and there
were also some very line, large camels,
with their curious humps, anil they too
were doing good service in riding the
When we entered the monkey house we
again cxplainicd "Oh! if our children
were here" what fun they would have in
watching the luiiiiy antics of the nunicr
1011S monkeys, of all kinds and descrip
tions, who are swinging and climbing,
and jumping, and chattering to each
oilier ami to all of us. One bright little
fellow, like a flash sprang to the side of
the cage, thrust out his saucy paw, and
olueked a flower from the hat of a young
lady, but upon smelling at it and finding
it had no perfume he threw it at therighi
fill owner, in high disgust, and went back
to chattering more than before, no doubt
telling how he had lieen taken in.
We are not ourselves so far removed
from childhood but that we would have
liked to watch the monkeys all day, but
many other things are to be seen in the
few remaining days of our visit. So
away we go to South Kensington Muse
um, and wander through its lengthy cor
ridors, and see more strange and curious
things than our poor brain can possibly
contain, and into its gallery of sweet
paintings where we enjoy the famous
cartoons of Raphael, seven in number,
represeiitingseenes in the New Testament.
The one which seemed to us the Ix'Sl was
"The death of Ananias" and it was ecr
taiulv not calculated to encourage false
hood. The apostle seemed to scak
again "Sold ye the laud for so much" ami
tiie poor wretched liar seemed at this
eery moment, to have fallen at their feet.
Another most wonderful painting was
the death of poor, sweet Amy Kohsart,
in which her beautiful body is lying prone
on the rough stones, at the bottom of
the terrible pit into which she had been
lured by the wretch Vardrcy, imitating
her husband's call. Hon or and remorse
are well depicted in the face of the earl,
as he discovers the body of his neglected
wife, whose sweet character is so beauti
fully portrayed in Scott's Kcnilworth.
Our next enjoyment is a view of "The
Arthur Memorial," a magnificent obelisk,
erected in Kensington Gardens in mem
ory of the I 'rinec Oonsorl. We arc told
lliiil the cost was a hall million ol pounds
sterling, and can readily believe it. The
height is two hundred and seventy-live
lect, and it covers a gigantic statue,
seated, of 1'iince Arthur, in burnished
ibrass, while around its base are statues
in marble of distinguished men of all pro
fessions. We took time to count them,
.and found them to uumlier one hundred
.and seventy-two, while at each corner
;iUT groups representing agriculture, en
gineering, commerce, manufactures, and
.on 11 lower level LurojH.', Asia, Africa,
.ami America, each ol which cost ten
thousand pounds, and looks as if the
money had Ik-cii laillilully expended.
A weary walk through the vast Brit
ish Museum winds up a fatiguing day,
mid we can onlv leel, that wc wish wc
were in a comfortable, papoose-looking
concern such as Cleopatra occupies,
where, wc would at last heat rest from
aching bones and burning corns. Wc
Rooked upon the mummy spread out to

to let these l.nglish sec the same ol their
life, and warn to what it is leading,
Do you remember his nKiiitig sentence'
in "The Tale of Two Ciiies," how the
handsome king and the ugly ipieen sal
upon the throne of France, anil the poor
jiny had his flesh lorn willi led hot irons
;liecitc he failed to take oil' his hat when
i company ol dirty monks passed at a
.distance, find how this sowed the seed of
the dreadful revolution and the bloody
guillotine; how nil Saturday last the
'granddaughter of Juccn Victoria was
married, as our cabman told us, to the
"llearl of Fife," who was forthwith
made "Dook," and the marriage was
solemnized by a high official of the estab
lished church, anil the bridal party all
partook of the blessed sacra nun I, ami
the chimes rang merrily, merrily, and
the big bells pealed, and iealed, and
pealed ; in short all was done to show
what u solemn and holy thing is mar
riage ; and yet before the chimes had
censed, or the bells stopped pculing, un
der the shadows of every church in Lon
don, not excepting Westminster Abliey
, I St. Paul's Cathedral, can lie found
neons of poor forsaken women, Ouecn
Victoria's subjects plying their awlul,
soul destroying enlling. Oh! ye, who to
day have solemnized a royal marriage so
solemnly, so appropriately, cannot you
do something to relieve or cheek this
dreadful evil ? If not,
"What will the harvest Iw?"

A Ureal Hucei-Hs,
Ri'ki.in, August 15. All accounts of
the cxieriments with the smokeless
powder at the Spaudau sham tight con
cur in saying that no smoke was visible
at a distance of 300 ynrds, and that no
sound was heard lieyond a slight tapping.
A strange effect was produced by the
sKX'tacle of a large mass of troops in a
firing position seemingly inactive, but
really pouring forth deadly tire.

A NeKro Murderer lays the I't ii

Jacksonvii.i.i;, Fin., August 1 fi. I til I
Westmoreland, the negro murderer, was
hanged here to-day. He was in com
pany with Father Kenny and Sister
Mary Ann from ail early hour in the
morning, ami up to the moment he
swung through the seallold, exhibited a
degree of nerve almost unprecedented. At
11 o'clock he was led from his cell in lb.
county jail, and in passing through I he
tiflice to the yard, he was pet tail led to
tarry a few minutes to bid good bye to
his brother, n prisoner ill the jail for wile
beating. The scene was very affecting.
The hi ot lier broke down and wept ; but
Hill said " That won't do no good; brace
up, and when you gel out do right and you
won't have to die iike me." As he was led
to the seallold by sheriff I'.icvard, the
condemned bad mail recognized several
acquaintances on the wall of the jail
yard, to several of whom henodded, anil
to tine he smiled, anil gave a significant
wink, lie repented .ill the responses
alter Father Kenny in a loud clear voice,
and when his hands had been pinioned
by the sherifl" he straightened hituscll tip
anil said : "I ant ready." The sheriff
dropped his handkerchief as a signal,
and a young Englishman named Hall,
who had voluuiceici, I lieu sprang the
trap at exactly I I I- o'clock. His neck
was broken in the fall and life was
extinct in four minutes. Through
Sister Mary Ann, Westmoreland
sent a parting message lo his
mother in Georgia. He also left a
written statement addressed to Hamil
ton jay, city editor ol the Tiiiics-I'iiion.
in which he avowed coniplctercpciitaiice.
and expressed no li-ar ol death. The
crime lor which he was hanged was com
mitted in this city on the night of April
5, ol this year. Westmoreland went
home drunk ; and alter iiiarteling with
his wile shot her through lite heart, in
the presence ol several people, lie was a
habit mil wile beater, lie was born in
Atlanta, and was t wenty-live years old.
The execution was witnessed by about
1 .Dim people in the jail yard ; but thcsui
rounding streets, rools of houses, and
trees were lilted with negroes anxious to
catch a glimpse of the terrible scene

HlHMisuiiAM, Ala., August l.'i. Every
thing scut from llirmiughaiii to Ihcellect
that tliiv. Scay has expressed any
inclination of proceeding by reipiisitiou
against Calhoun and Williamson, for
dueling in Cherokee eoutitv, is the purest
sensationalism and without foundation.
I'.ov. Scay positively declines to sav one
word to any body about his itilcutions;
and to all interviewers he merely said il
would be improper lo talk. He went
from here to Sheffield and Florence, and
had done nothing more than communi
cate with Solicitor l.nsk of the Cherokee
circuit court, calling his attention to the
matter. Cniv. Scay could proceed only
on a warrant swornout by somccilizens,
and no Alabamiau has been found who
saw I he duel or can make affidavit. Onlv
(tcorgians were there. Thcscscnsalional
reports are putling the (inventor of Ala
bama in a ridiculous altitude before the
country. He could not, if he would, pro
ceed without evidence. It is not proba
ble thai aiythlng will be done until the

"The Democratic party of Virginia in

affairs, pledge the same steadfast tidelil

Int urc, and declares to the people of Vir
ginia, First . we congratulate the peo
ple of Virginia that through the
wise legislation and administration of
the Democratic parly, the public schools
have been preserved in cllicicnt operation,
and their accoinniodat ions extended ;
that the resources uccessarv for the con
duct of i he government, in all its depart
ments have been secured, and that the
debt ijucstion lias been put in the train
of linal acceptable set I lenient. We would
reprobate as mischievous to all interests
the re-opening ol an issue which has
been the source of so much embarrass
ment and vexation to llie common wealth.
We confidently hok to its solution upon
the lines of adjustment, which the people
have endorsed, and which the I cino
eratic representatives have faithfully ex
ecuted. Second, the Democratic party founded
the public school system of the common
wealth ; the present ctiicieney of the
system is the result of Democratic laws
and Democratic elfort. We will care lor
and support the public schools until
every child shall be able to secure the
benefits of education. To this end wc
lavor liberal appropriations by the
ledcral .uovernnicnt, apportioned nniony
the States in ratio of the illiteracy ol
i heir population.
Third, the Democratic parly regards
the encouragement and fostering ol
agriculture as all important to the pros
perity of Virginia, and that Kccuriui
valuable iinminiution is necessary to tin
full success ol agriculture in ihc State.
Therefore, wc declare the Dcmocrutic
party in ils sympathies and its policies is
the liiend ol agriculture, and will by all
proper legislation advance, foster and
secure agricultural interests in the Slate.
Fourth, the Dcinocrrtic party has been,
is, and will be, the friend of the laborer,
lis ell'orts has ever Urn to dignity labor
and clcvatethe toiling man as faras prac

convict and hottest labor. It isopposed lo

pauper labor, and we lavor a collection
of statistics by the labor bureau of the
I'nited States and the consideration by
it of all matters which lend to the im

I'ilth, the Democratic party will foster
the ovslcr industry of Virginia, lor the
benefit of her own citizens, and favors the
culorceutcul of the policy of preserving to
her own citizens I he free use of all natural
oyster locks, beds and shoals, as regula
ted by law, and will oppose the iransicr
or surrender of public rights therein to
individuals or corporations.
Sixth, the party renews its adherence
lo the principles and policies on the tarill
and internal revenue so olieii enunciated
in the plalformsof the Statcand national
conventions of the Democratic parly and
sustained by the voice of the people at
the polls, and especially docs it insisl
upon the immediate abolition of the tax
upon tobacco and fruit brandies.
Seventh, the Democratic party of Vir
ginia lavois a complete reiuonel iatiou
and tree coinage ot silver.
I'ihth, we are in favor of a law re

Ninth, wc recommend a revision of the
laws imposing laxeson land with a view
lo relieving it o any unjust or unciual

Twelfth, while earnestly in favor of re
forming the tarill upon just .conserva I i vi

They came to Ashcville to make music
for the American Carnival which closed
last evening, and during their stav in the
city will occupy apartments al the Sv:iii
tunioa. They made a brilliant appear
ance in their handsome uniforms, ami re
ceived many compliments from the
crowds which throimcd about them
when parading the streets. The music
they made was simply perfect , while their
'Irillin was the finest we have ever seen.
The commands were simple blasts from
an ordinary baud v hist Ic, not a word
biinij spoken. So perfect were they in
ihc drill that loud cheers and torrents of
appreciative applause greeted their su
perb evolutions. They took the town,
and eminently deserved the unstinted
praise they elicited from 'Jiose who heard
I he music they made and witnessed the
excellent drills thev went tlirou-di with.
The managers ofthe Carnival made no
mistake in securing llie services of the
Fourth Keimcnt Hand for their closing
uihl, and we doubt if a liner musical
arcation could have been procured in
the South than tiie one which javc such
universal satisfaction last eveuini' Fverv
member ol" the baud is a gentleman, and
a musician of no ordinary talent, and
Tin- CmzKN lakes pleasure in sayinu
that the impression the Fourth Kcinicut
Maud lias made in Ashcville will be both
pleasant and lasting. It is the best baud
in the Slate and Tin: Cmzi: is proud ol
it. Come to Ashcville oltcncr, gentle
men. You will always find a sincere and
1I.OS1, OI- THi; CARNIVAL.

The Carnival closed last nielli.
A more perfect success, in every detail,
could not be imagined.
Il was the best entertainment evcrwil
nesscd in Ashcville, and evcrvboily agrees
upon that point.
The zealous ladies who were in charge
ofthe affair have every reason to be
pro ml of the glorious attainment of their
object, and llie people are indebted to
them lor two evenings of pleasure that
could not have been surpassed.
The chiel actors in the Carnival have
won for themselves rcat honor and
praise, no less lor the sacruiccs they have
made in Udialt of sweet charily than for
the very brilliant manner in winch thev
have acquitted themselves of the onerous
burdens they so cheerfully ami willingly
issumcd. A wreath of laurel each has
lobly w on.
The Carnival tasl evening, was, as we
predicted, much more delight fid in even
particular than on the preceding nilit.
The assemblage was much laryt r, and
then the music lent additional charms to
the jjory ofthe truly magnificent pano
rama. 1: very body and his friends were
in attendance, and ihc party who failed
in having a royal ood lime has yet lo
be heard from.
The tableaux were charming, and the
way in which I he booths wi re patron

Nnvy Vokk, August l.r. Lawyers in
ibis city of Mrs. Maybrick, under sen
tence nl death in Liverpool lor poisoning
In-!- husband, have to-day received im
portant evidence in favor of their client.
The uUonicvs an' KorK: Maeklin. Alfred
MaucU.a lawyer of Montreal, sends a
Ii 111 r to the linn staling that Mrs. Yapp,
answering the description of Mrs. Yapp,
who was the chief witness against Mrs.
Maybriek, was known to leave Montreal
.riorit. i line years ago to escape the pos
sibility ol being indicted for jierjury. Al
that time a man named Malvin Smith
brought an action against his wife for
scpaiaiion. Mrs. Yapp was the chief
vviuii-s;-. lor Sinilli, and gave vervdaniag
ing evidence against his wile.' Il was
lu vn, however, that Smith's mistress
ami the woman Yapp had. with Smith's
aid, plotted a di cp conspiracy to blacken
Mrs. Smith's character. The plea failed,
however, and Mrs. Yapp lied tiie couulrv
immediately tliercalter. Iiudlev M. lloi
mau. managing editor of the Portland,
Maine, livening Kxprcss, also sends a let
ter Mating that Mrs. May I nick i nice lived
in rortlaiid, where she was highly re
spected, lie asks the advice of the law
vers regarding the propriety of getting a
petition signed by leading citizens of
rortlaiid, and forwarding the same to
Secretary of State lllaine, reipiesting him
to interest himself in the case. The law-vi-rs
w rote a reply in approval of the
idea. A will known lawyer who arrived
to-day Irom Lngland, and who was
present liming Judge Stephen's charge to
.be jury, was seen at Hoc iv. Macklin's
otlii'e. I le (lot's not wish his name pub
lished. While in linglaud hegave the May
brick case a careful study. "I never
hen nl such ii prcjuiliiTilcharge delivered,"
said he, "by a Judge in my many years'
experience at the liar." Mrs. Maybriek's
lawyers could not get in a word edge
wise. When they endeavored to curb the
liulge in his charge, they got snubbed for
their pains. All thepeopiein Knglnnd were
opposed lo conviction except the Judge.
I do not think the home secretaiy will
allow the woman to be executed. Icallcil
io see her after her conviction, and she
lii'cscntcil a pitiful sight. She exclaimed ;
"I did not do il, I did not do it. My
lolly I admit. 1 was led astray by the
.nan who had an nnn.ilnr.il iiilluenee over
inc. That was my only sin. 1 would
sooner have lost my life than hurt one
liair of my husband's head." Messrs
Roc and Maeklin, the lawyers will for
ward theeviilcnee they have to Secretary
lll.-line at once.
