Tbc Black Jack.
The New York Ah rt>»H Record cop- ^ Q iea from tha Avalanche the statement showing the profits of one month s re cent work in the Rlaek Jack mine and thereupon asks: *'W ill not the Am?- , louche explain how it happened that j this same mine when worked bv the company was not marie to yield with a like profit? Where was the leak that made the assessment necessary! It is to the interest of the mining industry that such matters be tracked up to the proper source." In answer to these of It queries it may be briefly stated in re-1 p'y: "Private individuals generally , manage to work a mine cheaper than a .. company. In this particu.ar instance j of the men went to work with the under -1 standing that they would get paid for f 0 their services. Many companies oper-1 ating in this vicinity for the past few years have swindled men out of their ari just clues. W ith the projects of no ail pay stanng them in the fu7e men will , not work with a will, >ut when they | j n are going to lie paid as their labor de- j servas, they will put in a full day s | work. Herein may be fourni one of the reasons why the Black Jack tuin- s j ed out so well during thats.ngle month a Then the mine wss worked during that period without any unnecessary ex pense—no superintendent, no Hupernu- . tneraries of any kind —only a foreman to give directions and supervise the business and he possessing the advant age of being s thorough going pr.icti cal miner. Concerning the "leak" that made the assessment necessary, onr cotemporary must bn aware that a mine may pay lietter at one time than it does at another. A ledge does not always maintain a good pay streak. In the case of the Black Jack it was necessary during the Fall months to do «wsiderable dead work. While drift ing and sinking and striking for the main are body very little good rock may have been taken out. In a min ing country like this, where the Win ters are long and tedious, supplies for a long season have to be laid m in the Fall. Much timber has to be pur chftànd, and these unavoidable expen ses probably rendered un assessment in this instance necessary. If such as sessment hud been promptly paid, stockholders would undoubtedly have got their money back and more with it. The history of tho Ulack Jack is the same as that of many other mines. It is a good property, and whoever works it judiciously hereafter will he certain to make ||M»ney for the owners. Ava is ßÖui8viu.B, K.Y., May 8.--A Clark.* rille special to Courier Journal says that ootisklcradln excitement was caus- ed yestertlay by the lodgment in the Ôri Jov» jail of Dan Lyle, (colored,) ki* wife and a negro woman named Su- san Tidley. It seems that Dan and hj| wifc, who have resided in civil dis- triei No. 18, iu this county, for some tinté, where they have been considered quiet and inoffensive people of good character, frugal and industrious, - had, it senata, recently become imbued with emotional religion, which Dan has permitted to unseat his reason nn ' til he is a perfect monomaniac upon * the subject. He has asserted that he •-<< was the Savior, his wife the Virgin Mary aud Susan Talley, who lives with 1 them, a prophetess. In his zeal lie lifts on divers occasions appeared at places of worship lioth for white and liack people and insisted upon playing Ms part ns a preacher, to the great dis gust of all present. Yesterday con stables of district ten procured a war rant for his arrest upon a charge of disturbing public worship, and went to his house to execute the same. Dan resisted furiously, and assaulted oon stoble Sanders with an ax. Constable iwwTfty; In order to save the life of San^or% fired three shots at Lyle, one of which took effeoo in his right breast and another in the groiif. Lyle then to his house and barricaded tho windows aud doors. Sheriff Mos ley was sent for, and immediately ,went to the scene of action, accompa nied by policeman Morrison of this ptace. Upon his arrival, Lyle imme diately surrendered. Upon entering the house the officers were at tacked by a smell of putrid human flesh, and on making search found two of Lyle's children dead with their * necks broken. From tlie appearance of the bodies, decomposition having commenced, they must have been dead some time. A coroner's jury was summoned, and a verdict that the children came to their death by violence. Parties from the neighliorhood say that their im pression is that the murder was insti gated hv the Virgin Mary and the prophetess, who have both wielded a strong influence over Lyle, und that he did the killing to relieve the women of the care of the children, believing that for the occasion he was a llerod. Lyle's wounds an- very pa'iifui, but air not considered mortal.. The MintuK Lawi. Wabaixutok, Mav 7. — A meeting' Q f wfgWrll members of congre« was held last evening at the residence of j,y t j, e j aIK j commissioners. Senator j OI)e , arul representatives Daggett, of Senate" Jones, of Nevada, to discuss a : substitute for the mining bill prepared ; Nevada; Campliell of Arizona: Berry of California; Bedford of Colorado, and Maginnis of Montana, were pres ent.

A Novel Marriage. he lie at Louisville, May 8. -A special to the Courier-Journal from Mt. Vernon says: On the 25th ilay of December last, Win. A. McKetiny, son of W. L. MoKenny, if this county, shot ami killed Fred Smith, at the residence of the latter, six miles from Mt. Vernon. MoKenny, a young man almost beardless, hail seduced the daughter of Smith, evidence of which seduction Wfts palpably seen in a babe, which Smith's daughter (pretty girl Nannie) had given birth to aliout six weeks before the killing. MoKenny was arrested aud held to answer by an examining court. He was indicted by the grand jury at tho present term of the circuit court for willful murder, and yester day the trial began. Smith's wife and his daughter, Nannie, were the only witnesses of tho killing. According to tlie prepon derance of testimony, Smith hud driven McKenny and Nannie from the house, hud attacked McKenny, and stabbed him se verely with a knife, before McKenny 's fatal shot. Nannie has been living with McKen ny since the killing, and their former rela tions have been kept up. The trial excited conaidorahle interest and attracted a large crowd to the court house. The testimony closed this morning, and after tho jury had !>oen instructed by the court, argument of counsel liegan. The defense hogged tho jury for acquittal of the boy and promised that ns a fitting finale to the prosecution, William and Nannie should join hands and in the solemnity of matrimony, would pledge life-long devotion to each other. The jury after dulilieration of 20 inimités returned a verdict of not guilty. Immediately after, William ami Nannie marched into tho court house, and halting just outside tho bar in front of the judge's seat, Judge Mc Clure stepped in and in a few words pro nounced them man aud wife. The occur rence caused a considerable sensation. >9 go I) N av A Fight With the Keds. Santa Fk, May 9.—Capt. Kramer, with 18 men of the 6th cavalry, fought 90 war riors of Victoria's band all day on Friday iu Hock Crock canyon. Several soldiers were wounded. Blackman, with 20 cavalrymen and 30 Indian scouts, lia» reinforced Kra mer, and Col. Carr has also dispatched help from Camps tirant and Thomas. Arizona. Troop* now in co-operation with Hatch in New Mexico have been ordered home to follow up the trail of Victoria into Arizona. A carpenter who was always prog nosticating evil to himself was one Jay upon the roof of a five story build ing upon which rain had fallen. The roof being slippery he lost his footing and «s he was descending toward the eaves, lie exclaimed, ''just as l told you!" Catching, however, on an iron spout, lie kicked off his shoes and re gained a place of safety, when he thus delivered himself: "I know'd it; there's a pair of shoes gone!" Our ideas of right and wrong are mostly right. We can all agree as to what is best for man. No one will assort that a lie adds to a mail's character; that dishonesty in spires conbdence; that expensive, injurious habits are to be commended; or that vices that shorten and brutalize human life are fit for men aud women to practice. Sins may have made saints, but we do not l>o- ] lieve that they have made a great many. You will be a better man to-morrow by be - ! in" a good man to-day. ; Mnemonic*. A* a rule, there is little benefit to be de rived from tlie various systems of muemon ics or aid» to th. memory; but au ingenious boy can often assist himself in memorializ- j ing names by a very simple process. T« il. . lustrate: When we were a schoolboy, we j found it difficult to remember the names of ! the States bordering the Mississippi on the j west. These are, beginning at the north, i Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana. Taking the initials of these States we have the meaningless word imal. Once pro mean ingiese nounced, itl is easy to recall the names of the States in their order. Again, the young j , ., , ... j student in philosophy is required to name j the three kinds of levers, which consist of j the fulcrum, weight and power, placed rela- ! tively in different positions. In the first kind, the fulcrum comes between the others: ; iu the second it is the weight, and in the third the bower. Taking the initials, we 1 . i have fwp, which can )** easily remembered ; and which will always give the key. There : are innumerable cases, such as the names of spaces and lines in music, the order of the planets as given in astronomy, the order of | towns along a river, etc., where an odd word or sentence can he formed which will he of great assistance to the learner.
