[ Wcd ford Star.]
On last Friday evening, two brothers
named Arthur, living a few miles from
Gush's Mill, Va., shot each other. Cal
Arthur, the elder loaned a cutting box
to a neighbor, with the order that he
should let no one have it. Charles Ar
thur, the younger brother, carried away
the cutting box to the house of a widow
named Witt, with whom he was living.
On the evening of the affray Cal went
to the house of Mrs. Witt, and procur
ing the cutting box started home. His I
brother shot him with a rifle, the ball
entering his left shoulder, penetrating
the bone and lodging near the heart.
The younger brother then fled to the
woods, but thte elder brother lursued F
and shot him with a shot gun, left him
on the ground and went home. The t
ldor brother will probably recover. The
younger is in a dangerous condition.

r$peelal to aincinnsti Oermmseroil.
WassITwroit, March 16.-The policy
of ex-Scecretary FIsh in refusing to atp
point American olttzons of foreign birth
to the countries of their nativity has
been misapprehended. It had been
stated that aotion Was of hill own voli
tion. This is Incorrect. One of the most
serious sources of complaint on the part
of foreign governments against the Uni.
ted ftates In the selection of persons to
till its diplomatic or consular positions
has grown out of appointments of this
character. Persons of foreign birth
who left their country under
charges of political and other
offenses have settled in the United
States, become citizens, and have risen
in inlhu ncot and wealth. Their first
mtrllitilon has been to return to the
country of their birth ulnder the more
favorable auspices of a diplornatio or
consular coinminssion. Houri have been
kInown to osit their positionsl as means
to revcngo their personal hostility to
local or government authorities of those
oullnttrln, aiand have demortnoed them
selves in a 1n0lnner not only offensive
to those animongst whom they resided,
but as well seriously embarrassed cor
dial relations between that country and
the United ttates. In order to avoid a
continfuatitiol of these oc:urrences, 8.c
rotary Fish adopted this rule; for in
stan):o, not to appolat a German. to Ger
many but to some other nation, and the
same with respect to gentlemen of other
naltivity. The appointment of Mr.
Seburz as Minister to 8pain, may be in
stanced in this relation. The record of
consular appointments shows that for
eign-born Americans were never ex
cludedl from these appointments, but
simply ilanod in such position as would
not tend to enabarrass the foreign rela
lions of the United States.

WAsIINtTONr, March 1G.-It may be
said that the I ,ouijsiana people In Wash

Ilfryes pleonty of ropo by a desire for
oftice. Their stale politics have been
ttaniaged by what they call scientitlo
principlejl of corn lromli.se, and they
argue that Hayes must be given time to
arrange his actiolns in the same way.
An Ohilo member of Congress who prob
ably is intimate with Hayes, merely
wants Hconme guarantee of peace, and
that having been given, that will very
soon withdrai w the troops. Mr. Key has
gone so far as to say to the Preaident
that lie would be willing to offer himself
as at hostage for every man killed. The
santo member of Congress says that if
the troops are withdrawn at any time
within a month there is still a proba
bility of having a Southern commission.

[Special to the Journal of Commeraee.]
AzxKx, March 16.-At 11 o'clock this
morning four of the five negroes im.
plicated in the murder of Wr. Hause
man and Mr. P'orthman, viz: Adam
Johnson, Nelson Brown, John Henry
Dennis and Lucius Thomas, expiated
their double crime upon the gallows.
They were escorted from the jail to the
scaffold by a strong posse of citizens,
summoned by the sheriff. The doomed
murderers were dressed in white gowns,
and were attended in their last moments
by two colored ministers of the gospel,
the sheriff and a deputy.
The fifth convict, Stephen Anderson,
through the efforts of his counsel, J. St.
J.ulien Yates, Esq., was granted a re
spite of thirty days by Gov. Hampton.
E~ch of the four prisoners made dying
declarations corroborative of their pre
vious confdssalons. Their statements
were made to a crowd of over 4000 per
sons, mostly colored men and women.
After each had told his story there were
short religious services--a prayer from
the clergymen and the reading of the
burial services. The signal was then
given, a white handkerchief fluttered a
second in the breeze, the trap was
sprung, and the murderers were
launched into eternity. All of them
died without the least struggle.
Twenty minutes after the trap was
sprung the bodies were out down and
delivered to their respective families for
interment. Sheriff Holly, one of the
best and truest of men, performed his
duty well and firmly, but not without a
great manifestation of feeling indica
tive of the true man with a heart of

and to assure him that in the course d

Ilsr.--Bome two or three years s:ace the<
question of preparing the fibre of the ramie
plant for manufacture attrac' ed the attention of
the people of Lonuislna, and, as it w'R believed
to be .a very valiable crop, a number of land
owners prepared to raise it, and did demonstrate
the fact that the soil of Louisiana would produce
it abundantly, but they failed to procure a meane
of separating the fibre from the inc.osed woody
substance. This :iflicnlty, we are easured, can
now be overcome by the ue of the improyed and
patented hemp aid fl i, brake, with revolving
hackle attached, I tely invente-d by Majer J. H.
Tabler. This machine reduces the cost of get
ting out the hemp fibre from $1 80 per O10
pounds to 25 cents, and will doubtlesr get the
ramie fibre out very profitably. Any ne wishing
fuarther information upon the nsuarct can cu.l on
