He fired his father's house, and then a church, "to' see the blaze." -It is said that a large number of Western men, principally from Wisconsin, will seek homes in Florida this fall. The sale of pub lic lands twill attract numerous settlers, and the immigration business will be brisk. -The Italian government is displaying much energy in excavating for antique statu ary in every part of the kingdom where a probabillty exists of finding any. Reports of researches and of discoveries are sent every month to the Director-General of the Italian Museums. -A jury at San Jose, Cal., has brought in a verdict of $27,000 in a suit for breach of promise of marriage against Gen. Henry M. Naglee, formerly of Philadelphia. The amount sued for was $30,000. The verdict caused considerable surprise, and the case will be appealed. -Arizona merchants order most of their merchandise from the East sent through the mails, the freight being only eight cents a pound, but the Postofleoo Department has concluded to draw the line at "smoked fish," which has lately been shipped in the mails in various stages of decomposition. -A member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives Is anxious to render the death menace impressive. He has intro ducoed this week an act in relation to the exe cution of Joseph La Page, provding that it shall be in a place accessible to the public, so that all persons who wish 'to be present may have the privilege. --It is now officially announced that in Siberia there were but nineteen Hungarian prisoners, all students or workmen, including two military captives, viz: an old captain and a man named Kook, who had taken part in Garibaldi's expedition, and who afterwards became chief of the Bashl-Bazouks. The whole of the foreign political prisoners were sent back to their respective countries soihe years ago. Petopi is not in Siberia. -Among the queer things of commerce is the fact that beef, copper, and so many other commodities which are sent from the United States to England, sell for lower prices in England than they do here. The facts in re gard to copper are peoouliar. The exportation now amounts to 16,000,000 pounds annually, and the product sells in London from 2% to 5 cents per pound cheaper than here. If this can be done there is no need of maintaining the duty of five cents per pound on copper. for this industry is evidently able to take care of itself. To maintain the duty is to abuse protection. ---~-~- SOUYIIERN NEWS. Louulsana. Lake Providence wants to be a money order office. Bee culture has become popular in Franklin parish. A solitary prisoner mourns in the Plaqgeipines jail. The rice crop of St. Charles is safe and beyond injury. Corn, oats and peas were planted to an unusual extent in Morehouse parish this year. The country papers seem generally in favor of a State Press Association such as exists in every other Stata of the Union. The citizens o'f the Line neighbor hood, Morehouse parish, celebrated the Fourth. Hon. J. D. Hammond and D. Todd were the orators. Harvey Johnson is in the parish jail of Ascension parish, charged with kill ing a horse belonging to Mr. John Burn side, on the Clark plantation, in the fifth ward.

Owing to the present high stage of water and overflow of the railroad, the Methodist Quarterly Conference ap pointed for Saturday and Sunday, July 7 and 8, at Delta, Madison parish, will not be held there. The canvass of North Louisiana for subscriptions to the North Louisian Fair Association seems very sucoessf a large amount of money being con tributed. The enterprise will undoubt edly prove a success. Having tendered their services to the State as volunteer militia, the Pelican Rifles and the Baton Rouge Zouaves have received uniforms and accoutrements. They will also get arms as soon as the Governor can gather them in from the different defunct Radical organizations throughout the State. llsuls.lppl. Featherstone is first choice in Marshall county and Humphreys second., Twelve papers for Humphreys and eighteen for Lowry is the latest. Gen. W. H.

Woods declines letting his name go before the State convention for the office of Attorney General. The "sleeping" Gubernatorial candi date is called Walthall and Northern Mississippi thinks he will be wide awake when the Convention meets. A Democratic primary election for nominees has been ordered to be held on the third Saturday in July, in New ton county, for the various county and legislative offices and to take the sense of the county for Governor. The Port Gibson Reveille has opened its columns to correspondents on the snake question, and is determined to find out the largest snake killed this year. On Saturday last Major Jackson, col ored, was put in jail at Corinth on charge of murdering Jesse Dilworth, one of the most worthy and respected colored men of Kossuth. Just across Big Black from Durant, on Tuesday evening last, a tree was blown upon a colored woman and child, killing the woman outright and break ing the collar bone of the child. The Bay St. Louis Herald nominates Hon. Roderic Seal for Governor, and claims that that section of the State having so long been neglected is now entitled to some sort of recognition. J. M. McCoy, of the Pelahatchie neighborhood near Brandon was ar rested on Friday last and lodged in jail charged with committing a name less offense on a young lady named Norton. Major Geo. M. Govan, it is stated has withdrawn from the race for Auditor, be.ause of the number of candidates for other offices in his section of the State, and presumably because he is afraid of being in somebody's wa*y. Several of the Mississippi counties domplain of the manner in which the delegates to the State Convention are selected, being chosen in several in stances by the county executive or a small portion of it, without any refer ence being paid to tth popular will at all.

There is a rumor in Austin that fif teen hundred penitentiary convicts are at once to be put to work on the Gal veston and Santa Fe Railroad, and that the road is to be completed to Belton, in Bell connty, by the lst'of September. A Frenchman named Lyons was mur dered near the crossing of the Brazos river, on the W eatherford and Palo Pinto road, last Saturday. He was shot in the forehead and received a blow on the head from some heavy weapon. No clue to the murderers. The Patron advocates an early exten sion of the East Line railroad from Dangerfield to Mount Pleasant, and shows how in many ways it would bene fit Titus county. Itadvocates donations by the citizens of money in order to se cure the road to the latter town. With good railroad facilities Mount Pleasant would be one of the most pleasant towns in the State. Last week a family of immigrants in camp near Stockdale, in Wilson county, was attcked early in the morning by a man named Thomas and his two sons, and the father, mother and three sons murdered by the inhuman wretches. A son, whowas picking up brushwood near by for the breakfast fire, ran off through the woods and fortunately met a detachment of Lieut. Hall's men who were passing, and told them of the mur derers. They proceeded to the camp and caught Thomas and his sons in the act of rifling the trunks of the murder ed family and took from the pers'n of one" of the young Thomas' $1500 in money.

The parties who are working this lead are at a depth of forty-two feet. At different places down the lead they have found pure lumps of gold the size of a pea and less. This is the only lead in which they I have found pure virgin gold. The coun try around this lead is a solid mass of black slate or Iron ore rock. The lead I itself alternates between a red or yellow clay and a black clay resembling iron ore cinder. It is in this that the lumps of gold have been found. Particles of matter called "miner's clay" are found I in the lead. 3 FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. MONETARY. OFFICE NEW ORLEANS DEMOCRAT, 5 Friday Evening, July 6, 1877. j NEW ORLEANS CLEARING HOUSE.

Nothing transpired to indi cate any quotable variation in pr.ces. Some brokers reported that they could readily buy at our inside figures: others that they were com pelled to pay the outside. As a general thing factors adhered to their previous pretensions, but occasionally, when un der instructions to sell or to close out lots, they were willing to make some concessions. The stock is so greatly reduced and getting to be so much concentrated in a few hands that we hear of very little pressing on the market. The dispatches reported Liverpool quiet at pre vious rates, with sales of 8000 bales and arrivals firmer, buyers offering yesterday's closing rates; Manchester quiet and unchanged, and Havre flat, with no change in quotations. No report was received from New York, where they are still "honoring the Fourth," and will not reopen the Exchange until Monday. From every other cotton exchange.reports were received as usual. The sales of the past three days sum up 2400 bales (none on Wednesday, national holiday, 350 yesterday, including 35 and 50 not reported until to-day, and 2050 to-day), against 3400 last week and 4050 the week before.

The exports comprise 7499 bales, embracing 2556 to Liverpool, 1250 to Malaga, 530 to Vera Cruz and 8163 to New York to which we have added 220 by the river. The Exchange telegrams make the receipts at all the ports from 12 m. yesterday to 12 m. to day 1317 bales, against 1379 last week and 1157 last year and since Friday 7073 bales, against 6270 last week and 8278 last year.

Compared with last year, this shows a de crease of 263 bales in the receipts and 16,049 in the stocks, and an increase of 304 in the shipments. The Exchange makes the amount on shipboard not cleared (before to-day's exports) 18,996 bales, embracing 8619 for Liverpool, 8939 for Havre, 1250 for Spain, and 188 for coastwise ports, leav ing in presses, agreeakly to its account at 12 in., 42,111 bales, only a part of which is on sale.
