Sa4 An Unexpected Witness. On my last visit to Mississippi I arrived one pleasant autumn evening a; the village of Deep woods..aving come in the stage that day from Moody Creek. I found the inn well filled, and learned that the circuit court was in ses sion there. At the super table I found the judge and some half-dozen lawyers besides the county officers and numerots visitors who had 'come to attend the trials. I had some busi ness to transact with a me:chantof that place, whose name was Landor Wallace, and I made up my mind to call upon aim during the eve ning. I knew where his store was, and after tea walked down to. the pluce. The building was however all fast, and I turned my steps towards his dwelliug. I hlocked at the door, I and my summons was arswered by a black woman. I asked her if sir. Wallace was at home. She look into myface a few moments, and then burst into tears. "He's to hum, but he'sidead," she sobbed with much effort. I managed to learn frci the Inegroes that Mr. Wallace had been mirdered three days before, and that his murdder would be tried on to-morrow. Under ,sch circumstances I could not disturb any qher member of the family, and having leartyd from the slave the leading particulars, I left the door and return ed to the inn. There I learned some further matters touching the murder but those who understood the .subject were, busy, and I was forced to wait until to-morrw for the clear knowledge of the case. Though the murder had ben committed so recently, the body having no yet been buried, yet as the court was in sessin, and the accus ed and witnesses on hand, tie trial was to take place immediately. On the following morning: entered the court house with the crowd, and he first case which came was that of the murcbr of Landor Wal lace. The accused was a yung man, not over five and-twenty, named Ecward Demartin. He had been employed several years as Wal lace's chief clerk, and wasmne of the most ca pable youth in the country. I had some deal ings with him; and had leaned to love and respect him. He was lighly built with a na tive pride, which, while it lave him firmness and dignity, never made hi; manner haughty or overbearing. He was anorphan, of French descent,/and had been bort and bred in New Orleans. As he sat in the prisoner's box I could see him plainly. Hewas very pale and seemed to be suffering mum; yet he did not look like a guilty man. I :ould not believe he had ever committed a mirder. He was too brave and honorable for thrt. At length the trial comnenced. The wit nesses came on and gave heir testimony, and my heart sank within me as I found how strongly the tide of circunstances sat against him. It was proved he vished to marry with Wallace's niece, a yourg girl named Isabel Wallace, and that the uicle objected. From this a quarrel had ensue, and the youth left Wallace's service. It wfiproved furthermore tlat Demartin had challenged Wallace to fight a duel, and that the me:chant had refused on the ground that he coull not consent to meet one whom he still contiaued to look upon in the light of a son. Then it was proved that the youth was very wroth at this, and that he swore Mr. Wallace shiuld either fight or suffer the consequences. lie was determined to have satisfaction. On the morningrof he murder the merchantI started on horseback or Datonville, and in half an hour afterward: the prisoner mounted his horse and started aler him, saying as heI leaped into the saddle, tbat he "would easily overtake Mr. Wallace." And then, he added in the presence of three vitnesses, who swore to the words--"I can setle our trouble as well on the road to Datonvillk as any where!" This was at six o'clock in ie evening. At nine o'clock, a man named Dmk Harrold was com ing from Datonville and in a small piece of woods through which the road ran, he came upon the body of Landon Wallace, and at the same time he saw Edwad Demartin riding away from the spot. Thn moon was shining brightly and he recognisel the prisoner very plainly. He leaped fromthe saddle, and found the merchant senseless, and bleeding freely from several deep woundh. Close by hlie found a silver-handled bowie lkife, which had been proved to be the prismner's property. The knife was covered with Hlood, and the plysi cians had decided that tie wounds had been done with it. The murlured man had also re-i ceived a blow upon the hiad which was nearly sufficient to kill. This Dunk IHarrold wt a hard looking cus tomer. iHe was a stout, Iroad shouldered man somewhere about forty years of age, with dairk coarse animal features, aid looked the perfect villain. In defence it was proved that-Harrold had some difficulty withthe prisoner, and that he had sworn to hai revenge, but this amounted to but little. Surely the case seemet very clear against thle prisoner. He had t difficulty with the murdered man, challengid him to mortal cornm bat-sworn to have revinge-followed him to Datonville with the avoaied purpose of settling the trouble-been seen t~ flee from the bleed ing body-his knife f6uld all bloody by the murdered man'sside-aad, when he was ap prehended, hIis own hands and clothes were bespattered with blood. Were not these cir cumstances conclusive? At all events, so they .... • ..nn. ...llin I ,onitor At length Edward Demartin was permitted to tell his story. He arose, and although he was plale and wan, yet his voice was firm. He first called upon God to `itness that he spoke the truth, and then went on. He said that on the afternoon before the murder he had spent over two hours uith Mr. Wallace; and that all their difficulties had been settled, and that the merchant had explained to him that his only objection to thi marriage of Isabel had been the fact that be had promised her fa ther on his dying bed, that she should not be married until she was twenty years of age. "We made our differences all up at that time," continued Demartin, "and Mr. Wallace asked me if I would come back into his service. He said if I had beer. willing to have asked the reason of his refusal of Isabel's hand he would have given it, but I was hot and impet uous, and he was a little nettled by it, so he resolved to tell me nothing. He had just ask ed me if I would 0ome back into his service, when some one entered the store who wished to see him. I told him that I had planned to go to Datonville that evening, but would 'call on him when I returned. He said he had to go to Datonville too, and bade me call on him at that place, at the time signifying that we could arrange the matter there. After that I went over by the lake, and when I came back, I learned that Mr. Wallace had been gone halfj an hour. I got my horse ready at once, and when about ready to start I made the remarks which have been sworn to; but I made them jokingly, in view of the friendly meeting we were to have, little thinking of what was to oc cur. I rode off and at the distance of about ten miles, in thelittle woods, I found Mr. Wal lace's horse standing by the road. A little fur ther on I found the merchant weltering in his blood. I leaped from my saddle and knelt down by the side of the body. I turned his face up and called his name several times. The flesh was yet warm, but life seemetiax-, tinct. I got my hands and clothes thus bespat tered with blood, but I thought not of that. When I found that life was gone, and that could not well handle the body alone, I re mounted my horse and started back for help "It has been urged that if I really soughi help I would have ridden on towards Daton ville, where I could have found it within half a mile, rather than towards a point where there was no house for over six miles. But I could not stop to think then. My first intent was to wards home, and I followed it. I had gone four miles when my horse fell. He was too lame to go. Soon afterwards I was overtaken by Dunk Harrold and another man, who ar rested me for the murder. With regard to the I knife-the knife found was mine, and it had been stolen from me that day. The youth sat down as he ceased speaking and the judge shook his head. "Any one can invent a story like that," he said, in his charge to the jury, "but no one could have invented the circumstances.which bear against the prisoner." In short there seemed to be no hope for the youth. Though people pitied him, yet I could not see they shook their heads dubiously when he pleaded his innocence. The judge had summed the evidence all up, making it more strong against the prisoner than before if possible, and the jury were on the point of retiring, when a sudden commo tion was preceptible at the door, and in a mo ment more a young girl, or maiden, rushed in to the court-room with her long hair float ing wildly in the wind, her bosom heaving deep ly and her eyes burning with intense eagerness. It was Isabel Wallace. She was a beautiful girl; tall, straight, and nobly proportioni.tldith a face of striking loveliness, and a forin at once voluptuous and queenly. She cast one quick glance of love-upon the prisoner, full of love, eagerness and hope, and then turning to the judge, she cried: "Is he tried yet, sir?-is he found guilty!" "Not yet-but lie soon will be," answered the judge, overcoming his astonishment as quickly as possible for the benefit of his dignity. "Oh! he's innocent. He's innocent," the fair girl cried. "He's not themurderer. Ho! officers, seize upon Dunk HarTold, and see that lie does not escape! Quick! quick! Even as the maiden enterled the room Har rold had moved nearer the door, and as these last words were uttered he made a rush forthe street, but a stout boatman i e doorway held him until the sheriff ca . The fel low struggled hard, but a pF of iron cuffs were soon placed upon his wrists, and he was carried back. "Now," continued the girl, turning to the judge, "willyou send whom you please to take my uncle's word down! He's alive!" At these words Ej Demartin started to his feet and utteredllf joy. But his feel ingis quickly overcame him and he sank faint ing back. As soon as the first outburst of as tonishment consequent upon this startling in telligence had passed, Isabel explained whet had happened. She said two physicians were with her uncle, and that he had revived from his lethargic sleep, and that he had his senses perfectly and that he wish to give to the proper persons an account of the assault which had been made upon him. The court was adjourned at once, and then the judge himself, accompanied by three of the lawyers and the foreman of the jury, went to the merchant's house. They found the wounded man very weak: and the physicians said that lie could not live long. As soon as the new comers were arranged about his bed lie related to them as follows: He said that on the day lie had started for Datonville, he saw young Demartin at his store, and that the difference between them was there made up, and also that he promised to meet him at Datonville. He started alone on horseback, having first packed away five thou sand dollars, which he was to carry with him. It was dusk when le started, and in half an hour it was night, only there was a bright moon. When he reached the little woods lie was overtaken by Dunk Harrold. He.,elt a sudden fear-that Harrnold meant to rob him, for he (Hlarrold) had seen him packing the money away in his pocket book. So le made a movement for his pistol, but before he could reach it Itarrold gave him a blow on the head with a short club, which knocked him from his horse. He remembered well of the villain stabbing him several times, and knew too, when hlie took the money firom his pocket. He could remember nothing more until he came to his senses on the morning of the present day. The physicians said that the sufferer had been in a sort of cataleptic state, induced by one of the stabs, and partly aided by the blow on tlhe head. His account was taken down word for word, by one of the lawyers and du ly witnessed; while the two phlysiciins swore tlhat the man was in possession of full sense and sound mind. With these attested docu ments, the party returned to the court-room. The court was quickly opened, and ere long the jury returned A verdict of acquital for Ed ward Demartin, and thereupon the spectators burst forth in a shout of joy, which the court tried to stop. Mr. Dunk Harrold was soon put upon trial for the murder, and duly convicted of the crime. When he found all was known he made a full confession. He confessed the deed, and that he did it for the money. He knew that young Demartin was going on the same road, so he contrived to steal the youth's knife, mean ing to fasten the crime upon him; and, but for the wonderful interposition of the Power which had held the murdered man for a witness, the scheme would have succeeded. Mr. Wallace lived until noon next day, and before he died he placed the hand of his lovely neice within the hand of Edward Demartin, and bade them live together upon his bounty. He had no family of his own, and to Isabel he left all his property; but it was the under standing that Edward was to manage it for her and be her companion for life. Though there zwas deep sorrow in the loss of so kind and gen .'rous an uncle, yet there was joy in the thought that she had a noble, loving husband. OUTRAGE ON A Jew.-The Koningsburg Ga zette relates the following disgraceful affair: The son of a Jew tradesman of Guttstadt, in Eastern Prussia, having lately terminated his apprenticeship to a furrier, gave on the occa sion a grand banquet to all the master furriers of the town-. After a good deal of wine had been drunk, the conversation turned on the cru cifixion of Christ, and the guests, regardless of the consideration due to their host, insisted that he was responsible for the crime of his ances tors. One of them at length proposed that, as punishment, the young man should undergo bte operation of having a cross cut on his per son. The proposition was adopted with ap plause, and the young man, in spite of a des perate resistance, had a cross cut deeply in his 'haunch. He would probably have been furth er ill treated, if by an almost superhuman ex erc.se of strength, he had not broken loose from his ialants and rushed into the street. There he fell senseless, and was conveyed to his own house; Medical assistance was procured for himnibut the loss of blood was so great there linjut little hope of saving him. His cowardly "assailants, all of whom occupy a respectable po sition in society, were sent to Heilsberg for trial. CONSERVATISM IN ROGRESS.-The present age, it is admitzted on all bands, is a remarka ble one. Neveir before were there such agen cies for good or evil at work. Never before has the human .tellect been so active, or push ed its invest~ation into every department of nature wit 'so tutbiess, all-grasping a perti nacity. the world appears to be rushing on with a leap and a whirl and a crash which no other period in' its history ever witnessed. The str$es of progress orat least of apparent progres, in dist:overies and inventions, in the triumrns of thefmind over matter, in the ex plorat ns of tht earth's surface, and in the apph 4ces for biinging rdmote portions of the glob intoimmediatecontact, commercially and mor ay, with each other, have never had any pars ein any qge. Events, which, but for our filiarity t'ith them, would be deemed most 'traordindrv, crowd in so rapidly upon each er that one becomes almost dizzy in viewi the passing phantasmagoria, and is almo at a loss som6times to determine whet r the tendiency of things is to chaos or orde: This staie of mental and physical ac tivit characterizes more peculiarly our own cou than any other, and is generally he li to have grown legitimately and naturally fr 'are tf our institutions. The spon ta us'utickeniig of the intellect, exhibited in e practical results in the country, contem poineously with the inauguration of free in sttiitions, the unshackling of the mind, the dispelling of th4 illusions and subserviency created by the dicta of authority, when the republic rose into being, certainly gives strong -ground for the reasonableness of this belief. That we have risen to be a first class power in the family of nations in a mere hand breadth of time, within the recollections of hundreds now living, is of itself the greatest of all the wonderful phenomena which the age presents. The extraordinary working of our system of. government, the rapidity with which it has ex panded, the moral results in physical power, commercial achievements, literary growth and tenacity in unity, at has exhibited, and contin ues to exhibit, to t e astonished world, have gradually tended Ibo the formation of schools of political and sodial philosphy differing some what both as to means and ends. We do not refer to what is usually understood either by sectional or political parties. The distinction is subtler and broader than the foundation of these and the line of demarcation between these schools runs athwart party divisions without the slightest regard to them. They will be un derstood if we designate them as the conserv ative and the progressive; and although these terms apparently mean, in the minds of mul titudes, actually do convey essentially differ ent ideas, they yet are very far when prope'ly construed, from designating doctrines at all.. rreconcilably or inconsistent. In ordinary parlance, however, the people of the country have become divided, to a considerable extent into progressives and conservatives; and, as they are generally spbken of, there is a decided difference between them. The origin of this phipsophic division of sentiment is found in the unparalleled development, activity and force of the phenomena to which we have be fore referred. The more tho;ughtful and sara cious observers of the times have apprehended that the ship of state was getting up nore steam and crowding on more sail than she could carry and that there was in consequence danger of her blowing up or foundering from the tremen dous pressure. They have therefore been in favor of taking away a part of the motive power in order to secure a pleasant voyage and the security of the noble craft. The more reckless and ardent, on the con trary, conclude that as we have managed to steer clear of the shoals and rocks thus far. we shall never meet any hereafter, and they, hence, shout, hurrah and up steam. Both of these classes are undoubtedly honest and may be equally patriotic in their sentiments; though as the progressives have had, it would seem, a large majority on their side hitherto, it is rea sonable to suppose that they have had a greater number of rascals on board, some of the-mr 'piratical enough to be willing to see the ship wrecked for the plunder which they would hone to obtain. nope to oouain. le To drop our figure. We believe that there is really no incompatability between true pro d gress and true conservatism. That hair-braine(l is and furious spirit which dignifies every experi n ment and every fool hardy or Quixotic act ar n progress is simply the spirit of destructior id working through ignorance. Its triumphs wil is be the downfall of the republic. On the othel hand, whatever is truthful in the developmenl d of science, social or physical, must necessarily )Y act in harmony with whatever is valuable and w in accordance with nature's'laws that is already 'n known, and the combination must tend to the U' preservation and the strengthening of the use re ful, the humanizing and the beautiful, whethei se upon a small or upon a large scale. Hence, u- we believe in the principles of progress and o n. conservatism, never rejecting a new truth he g8 cause it is new, nordisearding on old truth be d- cause it is old. We would tenaciously pre rs serve the old land marks, the pillars which the rt fathers erected, and embellish them as oui knowledge may enable us to do; but nevel al would we be guilty of the unpardonable folly ie of hewing them down under the fanciful con le ceit that we should by hook or by crook chanec id to find others to supply their places whiclh at mightprove superior: but which might on the d, other hand, prove wholly worthless. If any n- one of them should be found defective fron or time and altered circumstances, we would be ,h sure, before removing it, to have a better one ie to put in its place. Id A LOVE AFFAIR.-T-he Liberty Herald, Un ly nion county, Ind., tells the following: n, We have been placed in possession of some y. most melancholy facts in relation to a young el man and young lady, ,the former a resident ol r- Preble county, Ohio, qnd the latter a resident er of Oxford. It appears that the young gentle re man is a student at W',st Point Military Acad n- emy, and the lady wa4 his betrothed. Being it -absent from her a longi time, he returned home some two or three weeiks since, and found her married. Although a correspondence was reg 5- ularly kept up between them, she had concealed the fact of her marria1e, and of course he was in startled to find out how matters stood on his re is turn. The young mat wisely determined to I- let affairs pass off quietlly, and seek friends and rs fortune in another placy:. .d In view of this determination he concluded 1- not to see thelady, but unwise counsels prevail )f ed with him, and he went to the house where et she resided. While it, a room adjoining that of the lady, she heard amid recognized his voice, is and expressed a desire for an interview with o him. He immediately trepaired to the room, where a most affecting, scene occurred. She - asked and obtained his Jpardon; the interview closed and they separatin. But what she had is passed through was beyo;nd her powers of en - durance, and that night!her spirit passed from earth. The young marl was not informed of n her death until morning, when he attempted e self-destruction by jumpinginto a mill race not n far from where he resided. He would have ir succeeded in drowning liirnself but for the ac e cidental appearance of "J gentleman, wending y his way along the race to the mill. Imme )- diately after be was taken from the water and 1. resuscitated, be was sent to Cincinnati. Coxox SCHNAPPS. Dr. Hiram Cox, one of the leading spirits of the republican party, in these parts, and, by appointment, official "Chemical Inspector of Alcholic Liquors," issued a characteristic manifestoin; yesterday's Enquirer. We know not when we have read so good a thing, and as it is addressed to the doctor's fellow-citizens, we feel it a duty as well as a pleasure to gratify our readers with the communication somewhat trimmed. After setting forth his official position, the doctor says that he has made two hundi ad and forty-nine inspections of various kinds-of liquors during the two years he has held office. He then relates what he found: I have found some pure and beautifully aro matic, while more than nine-tenths the liquors were imitation-some not absolutely, chemi cally speaking, poisonous-while a great pro portion of it was, and is, the most pernicious, poisonous and villainous concoctions that have ever been offered to the public for sale as beve rages, or that ever entered the human stomach. I do not believe that there is at this time in the city of Cincinnati, one gallon of pure bran dy for every hundred that is in the market, of the most deleterious stuff called by the differ ent names of the different varieties of brandy -which are most miserable imitations, with corn-whiskey a basis-with sulphuric,' riitric and aectic acids, prussic acid, acetic or nitric ether, Guinea pepper, pelitory, &c., with sirup or honey as a covering. Nor do I believe that there is one gallon in a thousand that is in our market of the differ ent wines-Port, Sherry, Muscadel or Muscat, Sweet Malaga, &c., that is not a most perni cious and deleterious admixture, having as a basis, water, and as flavoring ingredients sul phuric acid, and in large quantities, to keep down acetic fermentation, together with alum, beet-root juice, juice of alderberries, logwood, oil wintergreen, grains of paradise, &c., &., some without one per cent., or a single drop of alcholic spirit of any kind, or a drop of wine or brandy, dependent entirely on the great amount of sulphuric acid for their preserva tion. I have detected the above ingredients in most of the wines which I have examined, and the same in the brandies, and at the same time, al though there is a great deal of port wine in the liarket called Burgundy port, and the pure juice, &c., I think it would be a difficult mat ter to find ten gallons of port, and as many of the other wines above, that are not imitations, with either slops, water, cider, vinegar or worts as a basis, with the other ingredients added. I have found in the course of ny inspections whiskey containing from seventeen to twenty per cent. alcoholic spirits, when it should have been from forty-five to fifty, and the deficiency supplied by a compound of sweet oil, oil of vit rol, and Guinea pepper, to make it warming and stimulating, as a liquor of honest per centage should be. In this liquor there was sulphuric acid enough in a quart to almost eat a hole in a man's stomach. [Cincinnati paper. MANJUFACTURERS IN GEORGIA.-The Atlanta Intelligencer publishes the following letter frota a gentleman of Upson county, which is entitled to attention as an evidence of the progress of Georgia in manufactures, and the opportunity for fuirther improvement: Permit me to communicate to you a few facts with regard to the extraordinary facilities for manufacturing purposes with which this por tion of Georgia abounds. In this county (Up son ) there are four cotton factories now in suc cessful operation. They were established some years since, and even at the present high prices of cotton are paying the stockholders handsome dividends. They turn out first quality yarns and osnaburgs. Indeed, I am informed that the products of these mills meet with a more ready sale in Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York and Boston than similar products of the New England mills. This is owing principally to the fact that the manufacturer here use a better description of cotton than the Eastern companies, who apply the commoner qualities to such purposes. I am not advised as to the precise piroits. As regards the profits of the mills, I am satisfied they seldom, if ever, fall below 20 per cent.-and this too, when cotton is selling at ten and twelve cents per pound. And then fuel "is dirt cheap," it can be had almost for cutting. In addition to all this, a railroad is now in progress to this town, which will be completed by June, and which will put the country in communication with all parts of Georgia, and with Tennessee, South Carolina, Florida and Alabama. Through the northern portion of this 'county runs a range of high hills or mountains, known as the I'ine moun tains. At the base of the range are sources of a number of never-failing streams, that rush off rapidly towards the south and empty thci, waters into Flint river, the southern and south western boundary of the county. These streams varying from ten to thirty feet in width flow through an even but fertile country, and afford a number of most eligiblesites for man ufacturing purposes I have ever seen any where. In several piaces are natural dams of solid granite, above which are deep basins of water, leaving nothing to be done by man but to construct an aqueduct and put up his machi nerv. Indeed, there is water power sufficient in this single county, if properly applied, al most to clothe the million of people who in habit this noble State. The objectof this state ment is to call the attention of northern capi talists and men of enterprise to the immense field which is here opened up to their industry. A SINOGULAR FACT.-A lady residing in tlhe western part of the city, formerly a communi cant of the Episcopal church, having lately been converted to the Baptist faith, under the minis tration of the Rev. Dr. Williams, of the First Baptist Church of this city, was last Sunday evening immersed in the presence of a large congregation: The lady had been afflicted for a number of years with the rheumatism, so much so that she was unable to walk without assistance. After her immersion "she came up out of the water" miraculously cured of her affliction, and was enabled to proceed to her home without the help she formerly required. This wonderftl cure, wrought as it we:e, by the aid of Providence, was made the subject of some very feeling remarks by the pastor of the church, who attributed it wholly to the agency of the divine spirit. [Baltimore Clipper. A JESUIT IN A LOTTERY.-The jesuits are, it is said, about building a church in Sevres street, Paris, but have not the necessary means to complete it." As something had to be done to fill their coffers, they decided upon having a lottery, of which the prize is nothing more or less than a jesuit. The following are the con ditions: 1. Only ladies can take chances. 2. Each chance is 100 francs. 3. Rev. father Lefebre, who preaches for the foreign missions during lent, is the prize. 4. The condition is that during three days he shall preach, work or exhort for the bene fit and at the pleasure of the winner of the prize. The lottery, it is said, has no lack of ticket holders, and will soon be drawn. A smile is ever the most bright and beauti ful with a tear upon it--what is the dawn with out the dew.
