The Festival Week of the Christian Caarehea Explanation of their Origin ssd Cereaaoalea, Kte. The religious readers of the Appeal, and especially those of the Catholic and the Epis copal denominations, will be interested in the following account of holy week, as compiled by our religious reporter. PALM BUKDAY. To-d.iv i known throughout the christian world as Palm Sunday. It takes its name from the ceremony performed in chuic'iej on this day of blessing palms, or other green b ughsj after which, in many churches, a p-oceskion is made to honor the triumphant entry of our Savior into Jerusalem, five days befjre his crucifixion. Like the faithful peo ple who paid their sincere homtge to Jesus Christ, and received hira with acclamation and henrtfelt joy, we should welcome him to our souls, adore him as our supreme Lord and Master, and entreat Uim to come and reign in our hearts by subjecting them to the maiims of the gospel. This is the first day of the holy week, which is consecrated to the special commemoration of our divine Savior's suffering and death. In the Catholic church es of the city, at masse, the history of the passion is recited or sung. When circum stances permit the passion is chanted by three clergymen, one' of whom takes the part of evangelist or narrator, another that of the rmagogue, and the third that of Jesus Christ. the orrtcx or tesibr or darkness. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday next, the office of Tenebrce, which consists of Ma tint or Lauds of the last three days, is recited or chanted. At the Catholic churches, four teen yellow lights, mounted on a triangular candlestick, are extinguished one by one, after each psalm, leaving only the white one on the summit lighted, which fight represents Jesus Christ : but during the Miserere this candle is taken from the stand and is con cealed behind the altar, which is intended to signify the convulsed state of nature at the death of Christ, and when it is brought forth again and placed on the stand, it signifies that the divinity of our Lord was never sep arated from his humanity. MAUN'DAY-THURBDAT. This is a celebration in memory of our Lord's last supper when he instituted the sacraments. It U so called from the first word of the anthem Mandatum etc., (John xi i, 34). " give yon a new command, that you lore one another, as I have loved you," which is f ung in the churches. In the Cath olic churches the bishop consecrates the holy oils which are used in the administration of the sacraments and procession of the host take plate. The altar is divestested of all its ornaments, to represent the destitution of the Savior in his passion aud the grief of the church in recalling his suffering. GOOD FBIDAT. Chiut cruciS-d is the great object which engrosses the attention of the church on this day, and to tin end she reads the leaaons and tracts I bat relate to the mystery ot redemp tion. Prayers are offered up for all persons, to how tiiat none are excluded from the suffrages of the church since Jesus Christ effered himself a victim for the sins of all mankind. J101.Y SVTCRDAT. The tcnebrr, or matins, are consecrated to the memory of our Lord in his sepulcber. Lie is represented to the faithful as coming out of the giave and triumphing over death by bis reurre. t;on. The paschal candle ia the figure of the body ol Christ, and the three candles i.re emblematical of the Holy Trinity, and signify that the faith of the blessed Trinity proceeds from the light com municated to us by Christ risen from the dead. CARTER SITTDAY. Sunday next will be Easter Sunday and the christian churches have always consid ered it the most solemn of the festivals which they celebrate. The passion of our Lord is commemorated with tears and works of pen ance only to celebrate more joyfully the mys tery ot the resurrection, tor as St. Paul teaches o, this myitery is the foundation of rhmtiamtv. Hence the apostles said; "If Cunxt Ik not risen again, then your faith is vain." The festival of Easter is also styled by the churches ''the day which our Lord hath luude," it being the day of his triumph over the power of his enemies and the,dark neas of the tomb. The principal disposition of the devout christian in commemorating the glorious event of Chnnt's resurrection from the dead, consists in renewing his faith inthetru'hs of religion, his hopes to share one day in the glory of bis Savior, and bis cliariiy, uy rising to a ule ol tervor in tne service of tiod. Flerlda Flea. There appear in June or July two sets of moquitxs a gray leuow, wno stands tne day watch, and a big black devil that relieves him at sundown. They cut right through an ordinary tuo q'lito bar as if it were a piece of cobweb, and chew at their helpless victims until, as a gentleman who has had experience ext-ressed it. "they swell up like a poisoned pup." Then a little later comes the bass flea, a muscular and pestiferous bug that takes a piece out every time ha bites as big as Toothpick Den can take out of a section of custard pie. These nuisances hunt the hu man family in detachments of a couple of thousand at a time, and so thoroughly sub due the ot'jct of their attack that six or seven hundred will hold olf, seemingly with the magnanimous reflection, "He a got enough, we can afford to let him alone." The favorite watering placa of Jacksonville people in the "warm" summer months is Fort George Coach. There is considerable ocean there and myriads of insects -of all kinds., from the boss flea down to the buy gnat. , , , . t f . . , ! 71 e.K. Ireah. , 71 8.K. Kreiih. rWl N.K. Krrah. rVK 8.

Oar Washington Correspondent Gives Careful and Faithful History or the lffarta of Senator Harris and Representative Young toward Securing a Suitable Appropriation for the Secure Protection or Oar River Front Against the En croachments of the Daddy of Floods Reports of Major Jlenyanrd and Lieuten ant Powell. Estimate or the Cost or will Insnre Permanent i Work that Security Difficulties Our Congressmen hare to Contend with The Case of Frank Brooks Colonel Clapp, Etc. Special Correspondence ot ins Appeal. Washington. April 10. It is very diffi cult to make headway through this congress witn any tiling like a bill for an appropna tion, no matter how meritorious the purpose lor which such appropriation may be needed. There is in the first place so strong an oppo sition to and indisposition to support appro priation or subsidy bills, and in the second place there are so many of them that, however small the sum, or good the purpose, it is dif ficult even to put one on its passage out of the hands of a committee. Even so adroit and skillful a representative as Casey Young nnds it up-hill work to secure a bearing tor Memphis, so long neglected by the .National government. In the matter of substituting lennessee marble tor brick in the construe' tion of tne Memphis customhouse, be was met on the threshhold by an objection which consigned to the committee on public build ings and grounds the resolution which passed the senate by a handsome majority, in spite of the unanimous report of a committee against it. This the readers of the Appeal will recall as one of the farst triumphs of Senator Harris. Even such a resolution as this, indorsed by strong men of both parties in the senate, was delayed by a few Totes, in order, as the general Ehraseology runs, that the house might ave full opportunity to investigate and inform itself. In like manner, and, it is asserted, for like reasons, the bill introduced by Mr. Young providing for the improvement of the harbor of Mem phis, and another to prevent any farther in roads by the river at Hopefield, have been delayed. Bending all his energies and exer cising all his skill and tor that which is es sential in this sort ot business 1 think him more of an adept than any other member of the house exercising all his powers of tact and finesse, it is only within the past few days that he has been able to assure his con stituency an appropriation of fifty thousand dollars for river improvements at Mem phis. The weght of influence in all such matters is rather against than for our section. A few Democratic mem bers from the north and west are guided by old-time Democratic precedents, and refuse to lend their influence or give their votes for appropriations that cannot be justified by su'Ji precedents, but the larger number keep a sharp lookout for their constituencies, and find litt'e difficulty in squaring with their conscience when their harbors are to be im proved, their rivers dredged, or their Pacific railroads are to be built. Not so with the av erage southern Democratic congressman. He is tender-footed as to appropriation and sub sidy, and, when he does not absolutely re fuse, manifests an indifference to either that, in effect, is much more killing. Northern mem bers, where their constituencies are to be direct ly benefited, stand closer together than those from the south do. But, coming back to the appropriation for our harbor, it is gratifying to know that in all his efforts to secure it Mr. Young has been promptly and ablv seconded by Major Benyard and Lieutenant Powell, of the engineer corps. The former made very clear and lucid report of the condition of the harbor, and fur nished estimates of the coit of the work to be done, with descriptions and plans, and the latter made a survey and report as to the ex tent of the caving of the bank of the river on the west side, above Hopefield, setting forth the danger of the river cutting through. These two reports were great aids to Mr. Young in his efforts before the committee. With them, and a statement ot the value of the harbor in a commercial point of view, he was enabled to overcome all opposition and go before the house with an almost unani mous indorsement by the committee of his bill appropnatiEg fifty thousand dollars for the improvement of the harbor. In his re port. MAJOR BENYAURD, after treating of the batture formation so fiercely and relentlessly attacked by the cur rent since 1859, says: 'it is estimated, from surveys made by the city engineer, that within this period upward of twenty-two acres of erouud have been washed into the river. TVt portion lying between the Mississippi river and Wolf river was never occupied by permanent buildings. but below the latter stream a number of structures, including cotton warehouses, coal- yards, an iron-mill, and other buildings. have been destroyed. At the present time valuable oil-mills and other costly buildings are in danger of being undermined and ulti mately destroyed. I be survey shows that from above Tennessee chute the current fol lows the Arkansas side very closely, and cuts deeply into the bend on that side above Hope field; thence it is deflected tj the Tennessee side, where tha whole bank is abraded from a point about two thousand feet above Wolf river to about Monroe street, and as the abra sion will continue down streaft, the remain der of the front is also threatened. An in fection of the map will show the amount of land destroyed in the past ten years. No work looking to the protection trom this con stant caving has ever been attempted by the city. A costly landing ot stone, extending from Jefferson street to the elevator, was built, but as this was continued only down to about low-water, it afforded no protection to that portion of the bank where it was abso- uteiy needed. ine greater part ot this landing has been destroyed by the caving. For the protection of the river-front of Mem phis, various suggestions have been made by persons interested in the improvement. has been proposed to attempt to turn the Mississippi into the Loosahatchie, thus bringing it out Wolf river; also to turn the main current down through Tennessee chute; also the building ot a dike above Wolf river, for the purpose of forcing the current to the Arkansas side. These schemes I deem utter ly impracticable, and not worthy of any con- . i . : ii i - . v - i-i uierauuD. iug remeuy must ue appneu directly to the portion of the abraded bank. Two plans suggest themselves. First, by a series of short spur-dikes, with a bank revet ment between them, aecond, by a continu ous revetment of the bank with brush and stone. A glance at the cross-sections on the map shows that the depth vanes from fifty to seventy feet at low water, these depths being ieacneaat distances iroin the shores varying from one hundred and twenty to two hundred feet. The expense attendant upon the build ing of these dikes in water of so great a depth, increased by the settling that would also take place, and taking into consideration the fact that the bank needing protection is a landing place for all the Mississippi steamers. and the consequent interference with naviga tion, I deem the plan of continuous revetment the beat to be adopted. This plan will consist in covering the caving bank from about ten feet above low water down to the maximum depth with a covering of brush mattresses or rafts loaded with stone. The average width of this covering will be about one hundred and seventy-five feet, and the length of shore to be protected is about seven thousand six hundred feet. I have divided the space to be protected into two arts, that below Wolf river, which is the moat important and need ing immediate attention, in length about five thousand six hundred feet, and that part above Wolf river, in length about two thousand feet, which, while needing protection, ia not so im portant, as the interests at stake are not so great. The following is presented as an esti mate of tha cost of the work: BELOW WOLF RIVER. 500xl7n.x21i divided by 128 ajual to 1 w, 100 cords brush mallre ses. at tS pr ccrd In position .... .S57 JKK) 00 ln.KOO cutjlc yards stone, at S3 50 In position 00 Temporary works, contingencies, etc ... 12,700 00 $120,000 00 ABOVE WOLK RIVER. 2000x1 75x?ij f divided by 128, etjunl to tiMOO cords brus h mattresses, a M per oord 2O.4O0 00 &0U0 euble yards stone, at S3 SO 17.000 00 Temporary works, onUngmcles, etc tf.lOOOO S44.0O0 00 Total for whole length of work.... fi 70.000 00 Thewoik, if once commenced, should be continuous, and, thenfore, if an appropria tion be njade it ehopld to otjciat W com plete either the one or the other of the above divisions. In so brief a space the facts could not be more oomnrehensivelv stated, nor could sug gestions be made of work better calculated to put a stop to the destruction which has swept away so much ot valuable property ana threatens so much that is eooally so. The urgency, tio, of the closing clause, ought not to escape attention. Acting up to it, let us hope that succeeding congresses will follow up the present appropriation of fifty thousand dollars with others, so that the work can be prosecuted to completion and to the sauafac tion of the people of Memphis. LIEUTENANT POWELL'S REPORT, setting forth the extent of caving above Hopefield and danger of the river cutting through, is equally to the point, and 1 think will prove of interest to Appeal readers, auot it in full as follows: "The line of well-defined caving bank in the bend of the Mississippi river above Hopefield, Arkansas, is thirteen thousand four hundred feet in length. Ihe upper limit is three thousand nine hundred feet above the mouth of Mound City chute. The lower limit is very nearly the same distance above the railroad ferrr slip at Hopefield Beyond these limits, in the bend, the bank caves slowly in detached places. CHARACTER OF BARES. "The bank consists of sand and clay in strata and mixed: the former material predomi nates. The frontage of cultivation along the well-marked caving bank is two thousand four hundred and forty feet; the remaining ground is wooded. Ihe bank is very steep. In the most narrow part of the bend a depth of fifty feet exists at a distance of one hun dred and fifty feet from the shore. On the convex side of the r.ver there is a gravel and sand bar with lodgments of drift. PERIOD DtTRINS WHICH CAVING HAS BEEN eOISG ON, AND RATE. 'The bank has been a caving one lor the last twenty-hve years, according to the personal knowl dge ot residents, ihe btate levee between Hopefield and Mound City chute has entirely disappeared from caving. The Mississippi river reconnoisance ot 18Z1 shows that the chan nel current occupied the same relative posi tion as now, and, consequently, caving was, most likely, going on at the time ot the re connoisance. Ihere has been no previous topohraphical survey of this vicinity by which a comparison can be made, to show the rate of caving, from common locations of monu ments or permanent marks; and there is no authorized copy of a land survey map on hand from which an approximate comparison might be made. But from well considered statements of reliable residents, it is con cluded that the bank, in the apex of the bend (about three hundred and twenty-five feet below the mouth of Mound Citv chute"). caved one hundred and eighty feet in 1876, much lesB in 1877, and six hundred leet dur ing the last five years; that the average an nual rate is trom one hundred to one hun dred and twenty-five feet, and that the point of maximum caving is slowly moving down stream. The bank on the south side of Hopefield neck is also caving: its character and rate of cavine- are the same as above Hopefield. The bank is more open; depth of mid-channel less. The rate, however, is likely to de crease on account of tha rapid enlargement of the shorter channel to the east of Island 45. CUT-OKF. "There is no danger of a cut-off forming from Mound City bend through either of the two lakes, Marion and Mopeneld, in that vi cinity. If a cut-off occurs, it will most likely follow the shortest line across Hopefield neck. This line is now fifteen thousand one hundred feet in length. The distance by the channel around Hopefield point is three times as long. The neck is heavily wooded. Assuming one mile as the dangerous limit and two hundred feet as the annual combined rate of caving, forty-eight years would be required for the attainment of that limit. The ground is more favorable for the formation of a chute than a cut-off. The ine of least distance across the neck nearly coincides with the prolongation of the direc tion ot the channel in the upper halt ol the bend, and of the lower part of Four-Mile bayou. This bayou is about forty-five feet wide and ten feet deep; it commences near Mound City, extends parallel to the bend, and when at a distance of three thou sand six hundred feet from its apex, continues in a southern direction, while the river turns eastwardly. The mean elevation of the inte rior of the neck, excepting on the banks ot the bayou, is about hve teet lower than the ground along the river banks. This strip of higher ground has a mean width of only six hundred and fifty feet in the lower half of INJURY FROM A CONTINUANCE OF THE CAV INO. While there does not appear to be any immediate danger of a cut-off, a continu ance of the caving will permit a larger quantity of flood-water to oveiflow the coun try back of Hopefield, and facilitate the form ation of a high-water chute; and as the depth of the bend increases the apex moves down stream to force the current more di rectly against the low alluvial ground at and below the mouth of Wolf river, with result ing injury to the water-front of Memphis, Tennessee. PREVENTIVE MEASURE. "The plan recommended for prevention of additional caving is a revetment of brush mattresses placed against the bank, ten feet from the top to the bottom of the slope, and loaded with stone. The following is an esti mate of the cost of such a revetment in posi tion: 14.000 molt TVs mult by 150. divid ed by 128 equals 41,016 cords brush mattresses, at $ 1 $123,048 00 80,762 cubic yards stone at$3 50.... 107,H7 00 1'or contingencies 23,071 50 Total $268,788 50 I regret to say that Mr. Young found it impossible to secure an appropriation for this work. When he ventured to do so he was confronted in the committee by the inquiry: "If this danger of cut-off is imminent, why engage in any work for the improvement of the harbor of Memphis ? Would not such work be in the nature of labor and money thrown away?" To this he made answer that it would not; that the work of improv ing the harbor of Memphis was an immedi ate necessity, and that the work of prevent ing Memphis being cut off from river navi gation by four miles cf swamp was equally necessary; that one work would save the other, and both were equally urgent and necessary. But it was no use. They would not give more than the fifty thousand dollars for har bor improvement. Next session, however, it is among the possibilities that he will suc ceed in getting a fifty thousand dollar appro priation for the threatened cut-off at Hope field. THE CASE OF FRANK BROOKS, recently decided in the district court here, is one that has not escaped the attention of the Appeal. The telegraph has apprised you of a result that is a full, and, it is generally conceded, a fair vindication of the character of a man who always stood high in Memphis when, as a praticiug lawyer, and later as a merchant and business man, he was a citizen thereof. It was difficult for those who knew him inti mately, to believe that Mr. Brooks could lend himself to downright robbery of the treasury, or that he would join with others in a crime so base. His whole life falsified such a charge, and even when he was found guilty, by a court organized to convict, no one of his friends failed in heart or hope concerning him. That they were Justified in their feelings and position toward him, the charge of the court and the finding of the jury last week are the best proofs. The court said that there was no evidence to convict or on which to base a charge of conspiracy to defraud the government out of seventy-five thousand dollars; the money belonged to Parkman, Brooks & Co., or their representatives, and no fraud bad been practiced ;he therefore instruct ed the jury to bring in a verdict of not guilty, which they did without leaving their seats. The defendants offered noevi fence whatever, and were acquitted on the government's own case. Other charges against him and the other defendants in the case were dismissed by the attorney for the government. And thus, after three years of almost uninterrupted vilification, traduction, and abuse, Mr. Brooks has been relieved of tfce odium cast upon him by a prosecution utterly baseless and as wanton as it was defamatory. It is rumored that two or three of the witnesses who appeared against him are to be prose cuted for perjury. THE LENGTH OF THE SESSION. There ia a great difference of opinion among members of congress as to the prob able length of the present session, General Banks says, according to an interview in the Star, that he never saw a house with less dis position to transact business promptly than the present one. General Banks does not think that congress will adjourn before the middle of August. Mr. Kelley, who is the father of the house, and has had an oppoitu nity to observe the workings of various con gresses in the past, says that he does not think that congress will adjourn before the middle of July, unless the weather becomes hot enough to drive the members out of town. Senator M'Pherson believes that congress will not adjourn before August Senator Thur man thinks the present session will be pro tracted into hot weather. A month, at least, is expected to be occupied in debate on the tariff bill in the house. GENE&AJU MARCCB J.

HIa Speech a the State Debt Qaeetloa at Veehraa Hall, Iaat NIcht The Polats made by the ' Speaker. Colonel John H. Savage last night eloauent ly addressed a moderately sized audience at Cochran ball, on the state debt question, in which he denied the right of tne btate, as given by its constitution, to issue bonds. He argued further that the bonds of Tennessee were not only issued without constitutional authority, but in violation of the inalienable rights of the people, and that ninety-nine out ot every hundred or the bondholders obtained them fraudulently: hence we are bound bv no moral or legal law tor the payment of the same. ihe speaker elaborately reviewed tne history ot tne state bonds, giving some facts connected with their history not generally known, but which have set the Deo pie to thinking on the subject, which was one of the objects in view. He is opposed to re pudiation, and favors the payment of the debt at thirty-three and one-third cents on the dollar, except a small portion of it which. he thinks, should be paid in full. The whole matter, however, he thought should be re ferred to the people, who alone have the right to dispose of it. The speech was well received and attentively listened to by the large audience present. KNIGUTS OF HONOR. Third Day's Proceed lugs of the Urand Lodare of Tennessee, and Ad journment Sine Die.

At the time of Tweed's death pe titions were in circulation throughout the State asking the govenor for his release. They were being numerously signed, and it was intended that they should be sent to Al bany next week. In Philadelphia, yesterday. Judge Mitchell overruled the motion for a new trial in the case of Blosins Pistorus, convicted of the murder of Isaac Jacquet, in Montgomery county, in 1876, and sentenced Pistorus to be hanged. On the announcement of the deci sion, Pistorus arose excitedly and accused his lawyers of not having acted in good faith, and said if the judge did not grant him a new trial he would be a murderer of justice. The counsel for Pistorous gave notice that the case would be carried to the supreme court. It is certainly a blessing to have a safe, re liable and cheap remedy for coughs and colds near at hand at this season of the year. Dr. Bull's cough syrup has eminently proved it self to be ach a remedy. s ' WASHINGTON.

The general was met at Kalourah- five miles from Jerusalem, by the dragomai is and guards of the consulates, of the Greek -patriarch, and of the pasha of Palestine, and by a company of cavalry, and was welcomed into the city with military honors. , Tne pasha's military band was in attendance upon the general daily, and dur ing the, time of his stay he received every mark oi consideration from the pasha and local consuls and the dignitants of the Greek and Armenian churches. CODNTIXe THE ELECTORAL VOTE. The bill prescribing the method of count ing the electoral vote, and deciding questions arising thereon, agreed upon by the senate committee on the electoral count, embodies, substantially, the proposition submitted to the corresponding house committee by rep resentative Hunton. To-dav's subscriptions to the four per cent. loan were one hundred and sixty-three thou sand seven hundred dollars. MEXICAN AFFAIRS. The department of state has not yet re ceived official intelligence of the recognition of the Diaz government by Minister Foster. There is no doubt, however, of the fact, as the instructions to that gentleman on his re turning to Mexico authorized him to do so, should he find a proper condition of affairs to warrant such action, ine reasons lor recog nizing the Diaz gove""""" re tnac it nas shown a disrvon to arrange all matters in di8D oetween the two governments, and has given evidence of its earnestness in that direction, having, among other things, sent federal troops to the frontier to preserve peace, thus supplanting the inefficient mili tia. Consequently noraids have occurred On the Rio Grande tor the last three months; certainly none of a serious i-Jiaracter. Be sides, the Mexican government; has promptly paid, as they became due, two installments of the Mexican indemnity, amou nting to six hundred thousand dollars, tand ' recently the Mexican government checked an-, attempt at Matamoras to levy forced loans t in American citizens. There has been no oth er such at tempt for some months past. and. every pre caution will be taken to prevent them in the future. Further, the Mexican government expresses its readiness to enter upon negotia tions for the adjustment of all questions in dispute.

A SHORT SESSION OF THE HOCSE. The senate bill requiring the commissioner : appointed to prepare a new edition of the re- 1 vised statutes to revise the index to the first i volume, passed. Mr. Cox I N. Y. I. chairman of the commit tee on library, asked leave to report back the bill appropriating two thousand five hundred dollars for the erection of a monument over the grave of Thomas Jefferson. The amount, on motion of Mr. Cox. having been increased to five thousand dollars, the bill passed. J.be session ot Monday night was ordered for debate on the tariff bill, and Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights for consid eration ot pension bills. Ihe house then went into committee of the whole, Mr. Cox fN. Y.l in the chair, on the postoffice appropriation bill. Ihe appropriation recommended is S33.- 190,373, a reduction of $987,770 from last year; 100,000 ot that sum is for railroad mail service, $ bOy,b7o is tor inland mail transportation, $17,250,000 for paying post masters. The bill provides Ihat th -mot- master-general may appoint one agent to upenntend the railroad postal service, and one to superintend the car service, and au thorizes the postmaster-general to reduce the compensation to railroads for transporta tion of mails five per cent. A long and general debate was lntenuoted by the committee rising, and soon afterwards the house adjourned. DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS ON THE RESUMPTION BILL. The Democratic senators met in caucus to day. It is understood the resumption repeal bill was discussed, and the prevailing senti ment appeared to be in favor of its Dassace. The coming elections and the suffering expe- nencea Dy tne poorer classes throughout the country were discussed. The executive cau cus committee was authorized to confer with the house caucus committee with a view to reaching a decision as to the course to be pursued by legislation. SUPREME COURT DECISIONS. The supreme court decided cause No. 2Sfi Moore & Davis t. Robtnns, in error to the supreme court of Illinois. The principal in terest in this case is that Senator (late Judge) Davis is one of the plaintiffs in error. In 1855, Moore and one Mitchell nut-chased nnh. ho lands at. a sale at Spingfield, for which certificates of purchase' were issed, and sub sequently a patent was issued to Moore. Mitchell's land was sold under judgments, the purchaser af terward selling forty acres to juuge uavis. itobbws claims under pre emption by one Bunn, and sued to foreclose a mortgage on the premises, alleging that Moore had. bv mistake, cot a patent for a number of acres of pre-emption land, and that Davis has no valid title. The judgment was that Moore & Davis have no rights which were not "subject to Robbing's mortgage; and it is here asserted that the court erred in its ruling in the evidence and in the conclu sion arrived at.

Mechlin, a clerk- in tha war da. partment, has been under trial for a week past cnargeawitn excessive cruelty to three of his daughters. The indire at tha court said.ua passing sentence to-day, "while aa wo osto mo, tne onenses committed were not enormous, but trivial, the inatru cieaaea nsi, a annei, a hammer-handle, screw-driver, a chair-rocker, confinement in a room in December, without fire, bed with a cord to a box, and kicks from defendant's feet in the face and upon the head, with all the explanations of the defendant fully con sidered and weighed, I am utterly unable to reconcile the use of these irstruments of tor ture with the possession and exercise of a proper motive in inflicting punishment. The violence, unnatural and unreasonable be ver ity manifested, the disposition of punish ment to the offense, insensibility, coarseness and bruta'Kv which cbarficterized all the painf ul scenes, all besk a heart regardless of social duty and eVnihiting all the ordinary symptoms cf a wicwi. de praved, and malignant spirit. rii a careful consideration of the evidence I find the defendant guilty of the several assaults and batteries charged in the informa tion. Regarding the first assault, in Ojtv ber, 1877, the lightest, he is sentenced to pay a fine of twenty dollars, and, in cefault ot payment, thirty days imprisonment in the United States jail. As the evidence discloses a system of cruelty on the part of the father, utterly inconsistent with the true character he should sustain to his children, he is sentenced to six months imprisonment in the United States jail, in the District of Columbia, on each of the remaining informations as they may appear." m'garrahan's claim. The committee on public lands to-day re sumed the investigation which has grown out of the memorial of William M'Garr ha-. praying the enactment or a law ta -the record of his alleged patent f r ti e N-w Idria quicksilver mines in California. Up to the recess' the only witnesses were govern ment officers, identifying books and verifying documents. While Mr. KloDDer. librarian of the attor ney-general's office, was on the stand. Judge U. a. Wilson asked the committee whether it would be competent to show that Mr. Shaw, of the opposing counsel, when inquiring at the department of justice for all the docu ments in tbiacase, had made offers of money to Klopper to exhibit some which had not been shown him? Mr. Shaw immediately demanded that this insinuation be proven, or retracted at once. The chairman ot the committee said that Mr. Shaw did not take notice of the insinua tion, and declined to allow the matter to pro ceed fuither, when the committee rose. Mr. Klopper assured Mr. bhaw taut he would be very happy to have an opportunity to testify that the insinuation was utterly un founded. After recess, Judge D. S. Wilson offered to introduce evidence, given by Judge Jere miah Black before the house judiciary com mittee, in reply to some charges that have been mane against him during this investi gation. Senator M'Donald remarked that these charges did not cut any figure in this case so far as he could see, for there was no evidence that - Judge Black had any em ployment from New ldria county until long after he black ceased to be attorney ireneral. and there was nothing that required explanation from Judge Black. His taking the tee subsequent to the expiration 01 his term as attorney-general was not discredita ble. The senator added that he wcufd hare dono so himself. Mr. Shaw hoped the evidence would be admitted; it would be shown to the com mittee that Judge Black had taken a fee irom Jew luna county wnue actinsr as attorney-general in this case. and while thus employed he had wielded the power of the attorney-general s omce cor ruptly aua oppressively. Burdett also in sisted that Judge Black's evidence should be allowed to go on record, but for a different reason, namely, in order that the committee might see how thoroughly this evidence had overthrown the infamous slanders against an eminent and upright man. ihe evidence was admitted, Ingersoll pre viously taking occasion to declaim any par ticipation in the issue raised by his associate bhawj against the integrity ot Judge Black. AN APPROPRIATION FOR THE DISMAL SWAMP CANAL. The house committee on railways and ca nals to-day agreed upon a bill indorsing the issuing of four hundred thousand dollars worth ot bonds ot the Dismal swamp canal company, ihe proceeds ot the sales ot the bonds are to be expended in widening and deepening the canal through Virginia and North Carolina.
