The Rome Tribune touches in its last issue
on a subject of exceeding interest to the entire
State, being the servant girl question. It says:
••We have repeatedly been requested to ask if
our prepte cannot devise soma means to get
rid of the existing house servant nuisance. It
is true, as many have represented to us, that
many of our present servants are utterly un
rt-iiaide. and a great nuisance to housekeepers.
Perbips the Chinese would bo an improve

that direction that many of the ill-paid and
almost starving seamstresses of the large
cities would gladly accept places as servants

important and vexa*lons subject. At present

The Rome Bulletin relates a sad instance of
accidental death from the discharge of what
was supposed to be aa uuloaded pistoi It
seems that on Thursday last a Mr. Davis, of
Ridge Valley, about eight miles from Rome,
gave his little son the supposed harmless
weapon to clean. The little fellow while play
ing with the pistol accidentally touched the
trigger, causing the discharge of the contents
into the head of an infant who was sitting on
the il or. and instant death followed.
We see it stated that “Uncle Remus'' has got

nobly In this matter. They not only sold coal
a tne same price as before the cold snap, and
the demand began to be so great, but did all
iu their pow'-r to supply every one, allowing
each onty a quarter of a ton. In business such
fa are very rare, and cannot fail to be appre
ciated. Wood is also very scares, owing to the
extreme cold weather. Yesterday quite a
number of wagons loaded with wood came to
the city, aud the haulers received almost any
price they wished, some getting as much as
fl for a 'two-horse' load. All sincerely wish for
fair weather, but it seems as if we will have
sometime to wait yet."
The Atlanta Constitution notes the fact
that the January Scribner contains a sketch by
Colonel R M. Johnston, of Baltimore, which
possesses a special interest for Georgians. It
is entitled ‘The Expensive Treat of Colonel
Grice.’ and, in unctuous but refined humor
and vivid delineation of character, is altogether
the finest piece of work Colonel Johnston has
done, and this, as those who have read his
'Duxesborough Tales' know is saying a good
dea l . The sketch is thoroughly Georgian and
local, but the humor and the treatment are
managed through a literary perspective that is
cosmopolitan in the highest and best sense.
The skibful reproduction in print of what is
knowu as the cracker dialect ought to be a

More visitors are reported in St. Augustine
last month than during auy corresponding
mouth of previous years.
The St. Augustine Press states that Mr.
Daniel J. Martin returned to that city on Tues
day, the 2lt ult, having beo-.successful in re
covering the body of his brother-in-law, Mr.
Felipe Hernandez, who, with his wife, were
lost on the "Vera Cruz." The body was fully
identiflei and has been forwarde J North. Mr.
Martin also made efforts to recover the re
mains of his sister, but failed to do so, not
withstanding the fact that the remains were
buried n*ar the spot where her husband was
disenterred. His failure is attributed to the
want cf land m arks and the shifting and con
stant moving of the sand on the beach. Mr.
Martin states that he feels hopeful that the
body of his sister will yet be found, a s the peo
ple in the vicinity of the beach for miles back
are ail deeply interested and will use every
possible means to find the body. He speaks
in the most flattering terms of the people of
St. Augustine and on the coast where his sad
duty called him, receiving, as he says, the
kindest and most cordial treatment from all.
The present cold spell it is thought will not
materially injure the Florida orange trees,
though in some cases the fruit was frozen. A
dispatch to the Sun and Press from Sanford
states that there is no appreciable injury
from frost there, or in Sanford Grant. Oranges,
iemong, pine apples, guavas, all right, but to
matoes and some tender vegetables were cut
down. Col Hart, of Palatka, thinks that the
fruit on his grove opposite that city,on the east
side of the river, is not injured. He had large
fires built near the grove the night after the
fretze, and the up-river btjats report seeing
such fires all along the river that night.
On Wednesday last a Northern visitor, ao
companied by two men whom he supposed to
be gentlemen, registered at a Jacksonville
hotel. He had with hm a satchel containing a
great deal of money, which he placed in his
room. While he was at supper his coxpan
i ns entered the room, stole all his money and
i his watch, and made their escape. Thei
! whereabouts is not known.
The Fernandina Express wants to get rid of
the abominable nuisance of horses and cows
running at large on the streets of th t city.
On Saturday last, James A. Pickett, who kill
ed James A. Campbell last September in a
quarrel about some land, came into Jackson
ville and surrendered him*elf. The family of
| the D!urder<-d man have since the deed moved
: to Tennessee, and as there was no evidence
j produced against Pickett, he was discharged.
The St. Augustine Press reports Thursday of
Christinas ween a day of accidents. It says:
“Patrick MurpLy, a porter at the Magnolia,
fell from a psir of stairs and fractured his left
wrist and otherwise bruised himself. A lighter
loaded with lumber for the North Beach sunk
on the flit between the fort and the beach.
Two of Irwin Bros', horses attached to a
phaeton, became freighteued st the breaking
of some part of the harness, and becoming un
manageable near the depot, dashed at full
speed over the bridge, and were not stopped
until reaching the post office. The phaeton was
considerably damaged. As the running horses
were approaching the bridge, Bartolo Rose
was fishing He saw the horse comiug, and
losing his presence of mind, he c:iinbei the
roiling of the bridge, plunged into the river and
swam ashore.”
Says the Fern -ndina Express : “Bv a decree

ing stock, etc. The bonds are nearly ail held
by the estate of Marshall O. Roberts."
Alluding to the late freeze the Jacksonville
Sun and Press says: “The cold weather of
Thursday merging ha* not been equalled in
this city or State since December of the winter
of 1877-78. At the Signal station here the tem
p-rature at two o'clock yesterday morning
was 13 degrees, while across the river, on the
south side, different thermometers give the
lowest range of temperature at 20 degrees—
oulv 1 degree warmer than in the city. As far
south as Like Penasopke, in Sumter county,
sccording to a tt iegram received yesterday by
ilaj >r Whitfield Walker, the lowest tempera
ture was 30 degrees, going to prove that every
where between here and there the freezing
limit was reached, although probably but few
old’ trees were injured, as the cold for
several dais past has driven the sap iu
the trees downward*. By the same tele
gram it alsv appears that neither the oranges
nor trees were injured iu that vicinity, but
only the tender shoots just sprouting out. It
is estimated that so far between one-third and
one half of the orange crop of the State has
been gathered and shipped. In a few days re
turns will b< in from nearly all the counties,
and then the amount of damage to the crop
cau be ascertained. To illustrate the degree
of co’d here it is only necessary to say two
thirds of the housekeepers in town havesi'-ce
bevn experimenting with frozen pumps, that
frozen oranges abound on the trees, that the
fire plug* had more or less ice in them, and
that ice formed everywhere where still water
has been expesed to the weather.”
Th- Jacksonville Union tells how a notorious
thief of that city broke jail, and in the attempt
to make his escape was frozen to death. It
says: “About one year ago a colotei inan by
the name of Schofield Davis, was coavicted in
the Circuit Court for larceny, and sentenced to
pay a hue and serve several months in the
county jail. After remaining in jail a short
while, he, assisted by other prisoners, broke
out. He made his escape, but in doing so was
shot in the hand by the jailer. Since that time
Ins whereabouts have been unknown up to
about three weeks ago, when he called at Con
stable J H. Stephens’ house. The Constable
not being at home, he left word with Mrs.
Stephens that he would return in a few days,
as he desired to see Mr. Stephens on busi
ness connected with his escape, and last
night was set as the time for returning.
Wnen tne Constable arrived at home his
wife informed him of the circumstances. Mr.
Stephens then communicated the facts to the
jailer, and it was arranged that the jailer
should accoui; any him to the house, and when
Davis arrived there arrest him. About7o'clock
last night Constable Steoh-ns, accompanied by
W. 11. Hamilton, the assistant jailer, left for the
former's house. They found Davis there, and
Mr. Hamilton immediately arrested him, and
called upon Mr. Stephens to assist in taking
him to jail. A large bowie knife and two pis
tols w. re then taken from Davis, aud the par
ty left for the j ail When near Clay street,
Davis again attempted to escape, ana ran off
toward LaVilla. The officers fired several
shots, without effect. Mr. Hamilton attempted
to catch him, but the thief ran around the
block and was overtaken by Mr. Stephens, who
held him until Mr. Hamilton arrived, when the
latter struck him several severe blowsover the
head with his pi-toL Davis, however, again
succeeded in getting away from the officers,
and ran in th* direction of the railroad trestle
and jtuuped into the water. After swimming
around awhile he c.imbed out and concealed
himself in the weeds near the Brooklyn bridge.
Assistance and a lantern was procured and
search made for him. In the course of a few
minutes he was seen to lea e his place of con
cs dment and run in the direction of the rail
road wharf. On finding that the officers were
pursuing him he again jumped into the river
near the Clay street sewer and swam un ier the
wharf, where he remained about two hours and
a half. The officers on the w harf could hear him
splashing and swimming around underneath,
but could not get to him They used every
means in their power to iuduce him to sur
render. but could not succeed in doing so-in
fact, he would not even speak to them.
Finally the s tlashing oeased, and one of the
men climbed‘underneath the wharf on the
frame work, and succeeded in getting hold ot
him The unfortunate man was then taken
out of the water, and lived about five minutes,
when he expired. Dr. Wm. L. Baldwin was
called, but could render no assistance. His
body was examined,but no wounds were found,
except several cuts on the head inflicted by the
assistant jailer with the butf of tl;e pistol while
trying to rearrest him The general supposi
tion is that the man literally froze to death,
having been in the water, in all, about three

the Railroad Refused—Petition for
a Receiver Denied.
Baltimore, January 3.—ln the U. 8.
Circuit Court this morning, in the suit of
the Pullman Palace Car Company vs. the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company, for
Infringement of the patent of complainants
by the railroad company in using Pullman
sleeping cars on their roads, and praying
for an injunction against the railroad com
pany, J udge Bond filed the opinions of the
court refusing to grant the injunction.
The following are the reasons given by
the court for' refusing to grant an in
junction at the request of the Pull
man Palace Car Company against the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company,
to restrain the latter from alleged infringe
ment of the former’s patent upon sleeping
cars. The court says: “We cannot grant
the injunction, first, because upon the char
acter of the evidence furnished, we are not
prepared to determine the extent or validi
ty of the complainant’s patents or their in
fringement; second, because there is, in our
Judgment, no case presented of such
threatened Immediate and irreparable dam
age as would warrant us in depriving the
defendant, before a final hearing, of the
use of the cars It has bui!ded; and, third,
because, In the judgment of the court, what
ever damages complainants may suffer be
tween the filing of this bill and a final de
cree, may easily be ascertained upon refer
ence, for which damages, when determined,
defendant’s company is abundantly respon-
In the same court, in the case of D. K.
Stewart vs. the President and Directors of
the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Company,
praying that the defendants be enjoined
from auy further management of the canal,

Judge Morris read the decision of the court
refusing to appoint a receiver.
The Western Union Telegraph Com
pany aud the Pennsylvania Rail
road Meet to Argue the Hatter.
Philadelphia, January 3.—Counsel for
the Western Union Telegraph Company and
the Pennsylvania Railroad Company met in
the United States Court this morning to
argue the question of preliminary Injunc
tion, which the telegraph company is about
to apply for, to restrain the railroad from
interfering with their wires between Phila
delphia and New Yotk, but owing to the ab
sence of Judge Butler the case went over
until to-morrow.
It is understood that the Pennsylvania
Railroad Company has given the Western
Union notice to remove its wires, and that
the telegraph company claims that, under
its contract It has the right to maintain them
without Interruption. The case is one of
great interest, as the line between here and
New York constitutes a great trunk line of
country, connections being made here with
all the principal points South and West.

A Concession to tbe Traversers—Re
marks by Judge Fitzgerald—Sur
reptitious Arms from Birmingham
—Conflict with a Patrol barge
Land Heelings.
Dublin, January 3.—On the resumption
of the State trials this morning the court
was crowded, though the proceedings were
very uninteresting, simply consisting of
reading the stenographic notes of speeches
of the traversers.
The court to-day decided that the speeches
delivered in favor of the traversers at vari
ous meetings throughout the country may
be read by their counsel. This decision will
considerably protract the trials.
Counsel for the traversers took advantage
of the decision of tbe court permitting the
reading of the speeches made In favor of tbe
traversers to take evidence concerning the
speech of Mr. Richard O’Shaugfcnessy, with
the view of showing that the Limerick
meeting was not characterized by the violent
tone that the Crown sought to attribute to
it. Mr. Nolan, of counsel for the traver
sers, also bad read various long speeches.
Judge Fitzgerald thereupon remarked
that they were a loDg rlgamarola without
any bearing on the issue of the trials, and if
they had any, In his judgment it would be
one prejudicial to the traversers. If the
detense persisted in 6uch a course he said
the court would have to sit from ten o’clock
till six.
The proceedings, except for this incident,
consisted of the reading of extracts of
spsecbe3 by Messrs. Parnell, Biggar, Dil
lon, Sexton, Brennan and SullivaD, showing
that the traversers had encouraged the ten
ants to hold the farms and pay no rents,

At the rising of the court Mr. Parnell was

London, January 3.—The Dublin cor
respondent of tbe Times says: “A more re
pulsive and terrible year has never come
upon the country. Its history may be writ
ten In two words—distress and disturbance.
It came in with the begging box and has
gone out with the bludgeou. It will take
many years to reconstruct the social system
now in ruins, and few can be sanguine
enough to hope that the task will be accom
plished in the present generation.”
The Daily Teleqraph states that a thou

with an armed party. It is supposed that
one of the prowlers was mortally wounded.
One arrest was made.”

London, January 3. —The Mark Lane Ex

for the past week, says: “The deliveries of
home grown grain have been small. The
markets have been dull, and everything was
cheaper. The flour supply has considerably
fallen. There are practically no old wheats
on offer. The values of breadstuffs con
tinually favor buyers. The foreign supply

Death of Francois Havel.— Frau
cois Ravel, one of the famous Ravel
brothers, died a few days ago at Tou
louse, France,where the gifted family of
four settled after retiring from the stage
rich. Francois was the most gifted as a
tight-rppe dancer and pantoipimist. lie
was as bald as a coot, aud looked much
older than he was. He was in a crowd
ed railroad car once when a lady came
aloDg looking for a scat. Fraucois
arose and offered her his. She said no,
she couldn’t think of depriving so vener
able a man of his seat. This inspired
Ravel, and to show just how infirm and
decrepit he was he turned a handspring
over the seat and landed in the aisle on
his feet. Gabriel, the oldest of the Ra
vel brothers, is the only survivor of the
four. Jerome died first, then Antoine,
and now Francois.

Rice Culture in North Carolina.
Wilmington Star.
We have pleasure in publishing the
following, which shows what can be
done in our State in the way of rice pro
duction. Our good friend, Rev. George
W. Sanderlin, of Lenoir, is a very intel
ligent gentleman and a practical farmer.
He owns a plantation six miles from
Elizabeth City, in Pasquotank county.
Some thousand or more acres of swamp
land have been reclaimed and is very
rich. He caused his manager to put in
cultivation between thirteen and fifteen
acres of this alluvial land and
sow it in rice. On Friday last he
sold to Messrs. Deßosset & Cos., of
this city, 901 bushels as the product of
this experiment, receiving $1 03 pet
bushel—total $946 05. This will do.
He made from 60 to 70 bushels to the
acre. He was offered $1 15 for the same
rice in Charleston. This beats cotton,
for it is not as much trouble to cultivate.
Mr. SaDderlin says it is more trouble
than corn and less trouble than cotton.
He has published a series of papers on
rice planting, aud thinks at least 100,000
bushels of rice were grown this year,
prompted by the directions and encour
agements of those articles.
Scarcely less rare than a black tulip is
the amazing natural curiosity now being
exhibited in the Berlin Aquarium. A
milk-white raven, with pale pink eyes
and red legs, recently received admis
sion to the great central aviary, but his
presence there spread such general panic
amr>ng the inmates that it has been
found necessary to remove him to a sep
arate cage. The other birds instinctive
ly recognized that this Corvine Albino
was abnormal, and therefore terrible.
Many of them became total abstainers
from food and drink, through sheer
fright, while he shared their quarters,
and huddied together, shivering, at as
great a distance from the fearful anoma
ly as the limits of their prison would
permit them to attain. In all respects,
save his extraordinary hues, the raven is
as other ravens. His appetite is appar
ently insatiable, and be ministers to it
with a formidable beak. He was found,
with a coal-black brood of brothers and
sisters, in a nest, built by his parents,
ou the topmost branch of an old tree in
the Georgenthal, a valley in Thuringen.
This snow-white raven is at present one
of the lions of the German capital.

Chinese quack doctors do a large
business in San Francisco. The large
class of ignorant people, who elsewhere
resort iu sickness to clairvoyants, there
go to the Chinamen, whose horrible
mixtures of reptiles and other things
have frequently been described. It was
lately discovered that the most noted of
these practitioners was in the employ of
white speculators, who advertised him
extensively, and took the profits after
paying hi in a small salary. He had
been a fisherman, and knew nothing at
all of medicine. It is said that China
men, with their fearlessness of death,
and their belief that every man will live
as long as his Maker intended, have
really little failli in medical science.
