TRLYL FOR COUNTERFEITING.
An Interesting Report.
In the United States Circuit Court, yes
terday. Judge Durell presiding, the whole
session of tlie conrt was occupied in the
case of the United States vs. P. Harris.
Tlie case is a very interesting one, front
the nature of the crime, the antecedents of
the accused, and the evidence brought for
ward. both on the part of the prosecution
and of the defense.
All the materials and tools used in the
nefarious process of counterfeiting were
produced iu court. A pair of double iron
cylinders, set in a frame to revolve at the
same time, the distance between them being
adjustable; these arc used for bringing the
metal used for coining to a required thick
ness. There were steel dies, closely resem
bling those used in the United States Mint.
A powerful screw, iu a small hut very
lieaw press, enabled the forger to use these
dies with the utmost effect; this for the gold
bogus. The silver coijis (half dollars) were
more easily made. A pair of molds of plas
ter of Paris, one having the obverse and the
other the reverse side of the coin. Into
these molds the base metal is poured while
iu a state of fusion, and there remains
nothing hut tlie process of putting on tlie
newly cast "brummagem" a "silver or golden
lace, as the case may be.
A galvanic battery was also in court,
compounded of sulphuric and nitric acids,
in separate cells, with zinc and platina.
Tlie effect of this battery was shown by the
United States District Attorney, who gave
a coat of gold to a silver half dollar as
effectually as could have been done by a
deacon of the craft.
The evidence brought home to the accused
the making of the coins, and au attempt was
made by the prosecution to introduce a
record of former convictions in the criminal
court of the State some years ago. This
was overruled.
The only evidence for the defense was
that of a number of witnesses introduced to
prove the moral character and unsullied
reputation of the prisoner.
The district attorney did not open the
argument, and the iury was addressed by
the counsel for the s.eiense. The learned
gentleman contended with great ingenuity
that the evidence on behalf of the prosecu
tion proved no criminal intent; that if conn
terfeit coin was such a bad imitation of the
genuine that it would be rejected by a man
ot no acute perception, no guilt could he
brought home to accused. The counsel
went on to contend that the indictment
against the prisoner was invalid because it
was made upon the twentieth section of the
act of 1825, "to prevent and punish certain
crimes and offenses against the l niteil
States." tlie above act having been repealed
by the act of June 8, 1864, entitled "an act
ti> punish and prevent the counterfeiting
of coin of the United States."
While the counsel was pressing this point. ■
the i ourt adjourned until this morning at j
eleven o'clock. We have no doubt that the
trial will be finished to-day.
THE DAVENPORT BROTHERS.
An Exposure at Knoxville.
Not many weeks ago the Davenport
Brothers exhibited their feats of semi
transparent necromancy in New Orleans.
They were attended by large audiences,
many of whom exhibited a taith sufficient ^
to remove mountains, and of course these j
believed in the Davenports. There is, in i
fact, to lie found in every community a j
portion of the material out of which Mor- j
mons are grown, or disciples of Matthias j
manufactured. So of course some belived |
iu these charlatan Davenports, and
waxed wroth because the Republican
attempted to account for the by no means
superior juggle.
Now it seems, as the following extract
will show, some of the sinners at Knoxville
have reduced their want of faith to prac
tice; and not content with disbelieving,
have actually proved their want of faith to
be well founded.
Let our readers glace at the following ae
count of proceedings at Knoxville, and see
what the scoffers there had the irreverence
to do:

Knoxville correspondence Chattanooga Time-.J
Hoxie's Hall was filled to overflowing.
At the proper time Mr. Fay, one of the per
formers, advanced to the front of the stage
with a paper containing tlie names of the
committee, and requested them to come
forward. Messrs. Bell and Lowery soon
made their way through the audience, and
weregreeted with tremendous applause as
they bowed to the audience.
While closing the door Mr. Bell was
struck on tlie shoulder with some unknown
object, but Mr. Lowery saw it and instantly
went to Mr. Bell's side and whispered to
Mr. Bell, who began to go through the
same motion. Out came the object.' Sir.
Lowery sprang like a cat and seized tlie
hand, and wrenched it carefully off. throw
ing it in the audience. Upon examination
it was lound to lie a paper masked hand, as
thin as writing paper, and fitting so closely
in the cabinet that it was impossible to ob
serve it. It was worked by a wire, perfectly
at the will of the operators. Cheer upon
cheer was given for the committee. The
brothers were raging with madness, but
constant calls from tlie audience convinced
that they must either play or pay, and ac
cordingly the cabinet was tlirdwn aside and
the dark seance was announced.
A table was brought forward and several
musical instruments laid upon it, a quantity
of phosphorus was rubbed on a guitar, and
the lights were extinguished. Presently
sweet chords came from the guitar, and the
phosphorus was seen running here and there
in the air. All present were thunderstruck.
They might catch the cabinet tricks, but
the dark scene was a stunner. While the
supposed guitar was swinging in the air,
one of tlie audience, named Brooks, pulled
from under his coat a dark lantern of im
mense power, which lie instantly shot on
the flying guitar. One of the attaches of
the show held a pole, on the end of which
was nailed a piece of.fiour barrel heading.
The guitar was lying ou the table in the
same position, only the phosphorus was not
on it. To describe the scene that followed
would be folly. We don't think the Brothers
will hook this city on their next route.

He will he warmly welcomed.
Steamship Beaufort at Auction.—
Messrs. Nash & Hodgson, auctioneers, will
sell to-day, at public auction, at the St.
Charles Auction Exchange, at twelve
o'clock M., the steamship Beaufort, together
with her tackle and apparel. See the ad
vertisement for full particulars.
The Washington Chronicle says :
The Southern men very generally express
dissatisfaction at the commissioners ap
pointed to' examine Southern claims. They
do not know Judge Alder; they prefer some
one else to Mr. Ferris, and think that while
Mr. Howell is an honest man he is not a
just nor an unprejudiced man.
The Chicago Times, in chronicling the
fact that a mam there married to get eat of
jail, remarks that "eoase chaps have a
qnM idea at liberty."
MOBILE AND OHIO RAILROAD.
New Orleans and Mobile Road.
The Mobile Tribune of Sunday jubilates
in this manner:
The completion through this city of the
connection of the railroads above named
was announced by us at the time it was
effected, but we liavenojt heretofore alluded
to the fact of cars having been sent through
from the Mobile and Ohio road to New Or
leans. On Tuesday last the Whistler-built
ladies' car and one of Pullman's magnifi
cent palace sleeping cars were run through
tlie city, and attached to the New Orleans
train which left its depot at 3:30 P. M., and
arrived in New Orleans at 9.-20 P. Al. A
party of invited guests made this first
through trip, under the captainship of Major
Fleming, the able chiet engineer of the
Mobile and Ohio road. The Whistler ladies'
car returned on Wednesday with a small
portion of the Mobile party, but the larger
portion of the party remained until Thurs
day, to return on the Pulimau palace
car, which was to make the through
trip from New Orleans to Columbus, Ken
tucky. Tlie, to us, most noticeable features
oil this trip were, first, the condition and
appointments of the railroad, which we
found to lie excellent; and. second, fhe
gratifying success of Major Fleming's pecu
liarly constructed six-wlieel trucks, a de
tailed description of which we have hereto
fore given. The advantages resulting from
the lower hanging of the body of the car,
as permitted by the new inventions of
Major Fleming, were very strikingly no
ticeable in the motion of the car on this
trip. Making every proper allowance for
the smooth and admirable road over which
we were traveling, Still tlie absence of the
usual jar and swinging motion was most
pleasantly observable. Now that these
roads have " kissed " we trust that there
will he no delay in perfecting such through
arrangements as the convenience of the
traveling public imperatively demands.
Supreme Court.
William L. Wynn vs. Eliza C. Patrick,
executrix. No. 3182—Appeal from the dis
trict court, parish of West Baton Rouge.
Howe, J.
This action was instituted against tlie
executrix of J. C. Patrick upon two notes
of tlie deceased.
There was judgment in favor of defend
ant in the court below, and plaintiff has ap
pealed. The record clearly shows that
Patrick made the notes in suit to the order
and for the accommodation of A. I). Kelly
& Uo.. that A. I). Kelly Co. pledged
them to the Bank ol' Louisiana us collateral
security for a loan by the bank of "con
federate money," and tluit about three
years afterward, and long after maturity,
they we rtf purchased by the plaintiff from
tlie bank.
It is certain that A. D. Kelly &l Co. could
not have successfully sued Patrick on these
notes. • It seems, certain that, under the de
cisions of this court since 18(i5. the bank,
giving nothing but confederate paper for
notes to which tlie obligations iu suit were
collaterals, could not have recovered from
Patrick on those collaterals. It follows
that the plaintiff, purchasing long after
maturity, and legally put on his guard, can
have no better right than the hank.
It matters not that the confederate notes
to A. I). Kelly & Co., in December, 1861,
and March, 1862. by the hank, on the pledge
of rhe obligations iu suit, were used by
Kelly A Co. to take up obligations of the
pledgors. The jurisprudence of the State
on the subject is founded on the theory that
confederate notes were illicit currency; that
the dealings in them were rontra boons
mores. and that the parties so dealing would
he left by tlie court precisely where they
had placed themselves. It is immaterial,
then, what A. D. Kelly A Co. did with the
reprobated currency which they received
from the hank by discount os pledge of
notes in suit. Judgment affirmed.
Metropolitan Police Uniform*.
In the case of B. O. Mesritz et al,vs.
Henry Marks et al. respecting the furnishing
of uniforms for the Metropolitan Police.
Judge Cooley yesterday delivered a lengthy
opinion, closing with the following order:
It is therefore ordered, adjudged and de
j creed that plaintiffs, B. O. Mesritz and
i Jacob Jaroslawski, have judgment against
j and recover of H. Scott. Henry Marks, and
i Harris Garfinkle. in solido. the sum of
I $5913, with legal interest front June IS,
' 1869, until paid, and for costs of suit,
i And it appearing by the answers under
oath of the Home Mutual Insurance Com
pany, garnishees in this case, that they
have iu their possession money belonging
to If. Scott, one of the defendants, to the
amount of $1320 88; it is ordered and de
creed that said Home Mutual Insurance
Company do pay over the said sum of
$1320 88 to the Sheriff of thej parish of Or
leans, to be applied in part payment of the
present judgment against the said Scott.
And it further appearing by the ahswers
under oath of the Board of Metropolitan
Police, also garnishees in this case, that
there was due on the eighteenth ot June.
1869, to Henry Marks and Harris Garfinkle.
by the said hoard, the sum «f $2110 70 in
Metropolitan Police warrants, it is further
ordered and decreed that tie' said Board of
Metropolitan Police do pay and hand ov<
to the Sheriff of the parish of Orleans the
said sum of $2470 70 iu Metropolitan Police
warrants, to he sold as the law requires,
and the proceeds to be applied in part pay
ment of the above judgment against Henry
Marks and Harris Garfinkle.
And it appearing from the answers under
oath of said Board of Metropolitan Police
that further sums in said Metropolitan Po
lice warrants are due by said board to said
Henry Marks and Harris Garfinkle, the
amount of which is not liquidated, it is fur
ther ordered and decreed that plaintiff
herein reserve and retain the benefit of
their seizure and garnishment against said
board for anv sums due said Marks and
Garfinkle, and not yet liquidated as afore
said.
The Mobile Tribune says:
The steamship Mary arrived from New
York on Sunday morning on time, and is to
leave again this afternoon. She brought in
a good cargo, and is to go forward with 300
bales of compressed cotton from Columbus,
Mississippi. This last shipqient is an ex
perimental one, but if it proves satisfactory
to the parties on both sides of the contract
the entire cotton receipts of Columbus will
be shipped by this route next season. Wc
understand that nearly 20,000 bales of cot
ton were Shipped from Columbus to New

The Magnolia CentraHan says in refer
ence to young Hurst, who lately assassi
nated a man in Summit:
We have information that Governor Al
corn transmitted a telegram, that the inves
tigation of the matter should he suspended
until lie could furnish counsel ou behalf of
the State, which his excellency did in the
person of Hon. Luke Lea. The subsequent
evidence, so far, is favorable to the accused
party, and presents a different aspect to the
wild rumors that have hitherto prevailed.
Its final result will he duly announced by
us, without any bias of friendly sympathy
which we, in common with maDy others
here, entertain for our young friend Hurst.
His recent troubles have clustered around
his youthful brow thickly, but the impress
of generous manhood maintains its open
signet there.
Although it was onco customary to call
every high peak of the Rocky Mountains
18,000 feet in altitude, but one shows 15,000
feet on actual measurement. There are
many 14,000 feet. It is somewhat remarka
ble how regularly this height is preserved.
So far as measured there are twenty peaks
above 13,000 and, ten, about 14,060 fast above
the bm level.
FIRE THI8 MORNING.
Corner Buildin* Destroyed.
At twenty minutes past twelve o'clock,
this morning, an alarm was given from the
corner of Canal and Now Levee streets, but
there was no fire in that district.
Immediately after an alarm sounded from
the seventh tire district, and the fire proved
to he at the corner of Royal and St. Peter
streets, in the confectionery establishment
of Messrs. Desbon & Bounecaze. Corporal
Hussey, of the Metropolitan Police, first
discovered the tire, and gave the inmates an
opportunity to save a portion of the con
tents of the burning house. The premises
were entirely consumed, only the bare walls
being left standing. Owing to the exertions
of the firemen, who were early on the
ground, the surrounding buildings escaped
with little injury.
Our report closed at two o'clock, at
which time the firemen were still ou the
ground, and the officers of the Jackson
square police station had made no report
to the superintendent. We can not esti
mate the losses at this hour in the morning.

Academy of Music.
This evening tlie Academy will he crowded
again with admirers of the various enter
tainments produced there, especially the
exploits of Mile. Angela, the female Sam
son. and Monsieur D'Atalie, the man with
the iron jaw. We do not believe there is
another man living who can lift the same
immense weight with his teeth that D'Atalie
can. Nor is there a woman who can display
the same feats as Mile. Angela. The "Water
Sprites" conclude tlie performances, and
everybody laughs while it is on the stage.
Next Monday evening, first appearance of
the Walhallas and Bioplistic Troupe.
An Atrocious Murder.
We learn the following from the Talla
hassee Sentinel:
An atrocious and cold-blooded murder was
committed in Calhoun county ou Sunday last,
the particulars of which, as we have learned
them, are as follows: Mr. James W. Yearfy,
in company with a colored man, was riding
along the highway about three miles from
his home, anil was fired upon from the rear
l>y a man concealed by the wayside. The
weapon used was a gun. loaded with buck
shot. Several shot passed through his
neek. and some seven or eight through his
left shoulder, reaching his heart. Mr. Yearty
fell forward into the road, and expired in a
few moments, without speaking. The party
supposed to be the murderer is named Luke
Lott. He was seen near the spot; by the
colored man accompanying Mr. Yearty. and
by othi-rs. Au inquest was at once held,
and Lott was found guilty. A party of a
dozen or so started in pursuit as soon as a
warrant could be issued, and it is believed
that if caught, Mr. Lott will not return to
Calhoun county. Faint hopes are enter
tained. however, that he will be caught, as
he is said to have laid his plans adroitly to
get out of the way of pursuit, and to be now
well on the way to Texas. Ou the con
trary. we are also told that he has been
seen within five miles of this place in the
past three days.
This Luke Lott is strongly suspected of
having murdered Judge Carraway last
year, and four or five other men at different
times. Mr. Yearty made efforts at the fall
term of tlie court to have him indicted tor
the murder of Carraway, and Lott had
made threats that he would kill Yearfy.
Mr. Yearty was member of the assembly
from Calhoun county, a Republican: anil
the only member of that party who could
have been elected. He was personally very
popular and respected and beloved by ail
his neighbors.
Governor Reed has issued a proclamation
offering ono thousand dollars reward for
the apprehension, and conviction of the
murderer.
The Shreveport Southwestern says:
We learn that our good neighbors of Mar
shall are wild with excitement upon the
subject of railroads and the prospective
greatness of their town. Some predict that
it is destined to be, and this in the neqr
future, the Atlanta of the "Trans-Missis
sippi Department," and property has, in con
sequence. gone up like a kite. Indeed,
there seems to be very reasonable grounds
for these hopes, though iu a more modified
form, tor there is no telling what is to result
from the various railroad combinations now
in process of formation. We heard a gen
tloman, well informed on railroad matters,
remark a few days since, that no one could
foretell what the next twelve months will
develop with reference to railroads.
Many papers in the North have errone
ously stated that the Hotf. E. M. Yerger,
whose death in Mississippi has just been
announced, was the murderer of Colonel
Crane, acting Mayor of Jackson.
'• There are some members of a communi
ty," said Thomas Bradbury, " that are like
a crumb in the throat; if they go the right
way they afford but little nourishment, but
if they hapjien to go tho wrong way they
give a great deal of trouble."
A Richmond woman, correspondent of a
Virginia paper, said she interviewed Gov
ernor Walker the other day to ascertain his
position on a railroad question, and that he
asked, before committing himself, what her
own predilections were; and, when she said
that she was on the fence, he graciously
said: "Then, madam, I wish no more agree
able position than to be sitting by your
side."
The treasurer of one of the Lawrence
mills has testified before a committee of the
Massachusetts Legislature that in his mills
they have tried the ten-hour system for
several years, and that he believes it to be
beneficial to the moral and physical condi
tion of the operatives, while the product
ot the mills had not decreased, as improved
machiney makes up for the loss of the ex
tra hour.
For nothing was the late Dr. Palmer, of
the Boston Advertiser, more remarkable
than for calling men by their right names.
He could tell better than most men of his
profession the full names of our prominent
men, and initial letters mysterious to the
public were no mystery to him. If any
thing could have made him unhappy "it
would have beeula suspicion that all over
the country the papers, in noticing his de r
cease, would add an initial letter to his
name not known to him while living. Even
the painstaking necrologist suffers injustice
at the hands of fame !— Boston Traveller.

bers, with damages from such hands pay
able by the counties wherein the damage
