vanced on Allen to chastise him with his fists,
Allen drew a pistol and shot him in the
breast, from the effect of which wound Ma
lone died. The case will be further heard to

The kickophone is the latest invention,
and it will no doubt be introduced into all
well-regulated newspaper offices for the bene
fit of the dead-beats who want to carry off
exchanges, want local personals for them
selves and friends free of charge, and want
free advertising generally. The machine is
said to be so constructed as to be used in
stantaneously, and the result is that the dead
beats are satisfactorily bounced out down
stairways into the street The Appeal corps
has sent on an order for five of the machines.
Last Saturday 1 a sensation was created
near Glencoe, oh the Paducah railroad,
caused by the disappearance of a German
farmer, supposed to have been murdered by
some negroes, who resided near by. From
the reports brought to this city it appears
that the German was working on rented
land, owned a couple of mules and some
farming utensils, and was known to have
several hundred dollars on his person. He
left his plow in the field, and went over to a
cabin occupied by some negroes, about two
hundred yards distant. He was not seen
afterward. Five negroes were arrested upon
suspicion of having murdered the man, but
up to last evening his body had not been
found. It is believed that be was murdered
for his money, and that the body was thrown
into a creek near by.
The mocking-bird (turdus pollyqloltus)
belongs to that class called by ornitholo
gists dentirostres. The male measures nine
and a half inches from the tip of the beak to
the tiD of his tail. The UDDer Dart of his
body and head is ot a dark gray color, while
his throat, breast, and belly is a brownish
white. His lungs are larger and stronger
than the lungs of the sparrow hawk, and
his vocal organs are more wonderful than
any combination of art for producing melody.
He has five complete keys which he opens
and closes at will. These are his ears, nos
trils and beak. You may smile, reader, but
it is true; a mocking-bird can close his bill
and sing through either nostril or either ear.
The beak is his main key, which he multi
plies into hundreds of keys at will. No lady
is capable of greater cultivation in music
than is the mocking-bird; with a reed on ma
tongue, he plays instrumental music through
his mouth; in that respect be has greatly the
advantage ot bis lady competitor. very
morning at this season flocks of mocking
birds assemble in the leaty trees, and give
free concerts in every magnolia grove in Ten
nessee concerts which cannot be equaled by
the best talent of Germany and Italy.

Messrs. J. Burnett 4 Co.:
The relief the Jonas Whitcomb's asth
ma remedy afforded me was perfect; in fact,
I have not had a bad night since taking it.
This complaint has troubled me a long time,
and I have tried many things, but in no case
found any relief until your remedy came to
hand. I gave a bottle to a lady who was
suffering from the malady, and she found
great relief in its use. I most cheerfully rec
ommend it to anyone troubled with hay fever
or asthma, for it is the only remedy ever used
by me with any good effect. Yours truly,

LIVERPOOL COTTOJ MARKET.
Depression and Damp Cotton India
Taklas English Trade War and
Prices Bombay, Ksypt and
Brazil.
We have received Smith, Edwards & Co.'s
Liverpool monthly Cotton Circular, review
ing the month of March, from which we ex
tract the following: "The month has been
one of extreme depression, with American
middling cotton J$Jd a pound loweir a
decline aided by the unexpectedly large scale
of receipts in America, while our own mar
ket has been overloaded. The Manchester
market during the past month has been ex
tremely depressed, and the greatest difficulty
has been experienced in moving off stock; in
fact, matters have gone from bad to worse,
tjad at no time of late years have we Been
more despondency. In many departments
of the market very large stocks of goods and
yarns are held and cannot be sold except at
ruinous loss, and from nearly all foreign
markets comes the same monotonous com
plaint of over-supply. The little advantage
which spinners of low and medium counts
gained from the ample supply of the lower
grades of American cotton this year is fast
being lost from the difficulty of selling these
yarns and the rapid decline in price. The
joint stock mills at Oldham are getting into a
very bad position, and many of them are
apparently dritung toward insolvency.
It is found that the American crop loses
much more than usual from evaporation of
moisture, owing to its being picked and baled
in wet weather, and our spinners find that
the very poor margin they had before is being
reduced still further from this cause. Not
withstanding all this, we do not think that
consumption is materially lessened. Consid
erable interest was excited in Manchester i
short time ago by the news from India of the
repeal of the duties on piece goods and yarn
representing 30s downward. These are the
current qualities made by the Indian mills,
and the object was to do away with the pro
tective aspect of the duties; but as very lit
tle cloth and yarn of this description is now
shipped to India, the relief to Lancashire will
hardly be perceptible. A great part of our
manufacturing trade has been transferred to
India, and is past recall. War is the con
trolling influence in our market and prospects
are gloomy; its first effect would be to inten
sify the depression, but we ehould not expect
much further decline. We believe that the
business ol the country would revive (as
usually happens in such cases) soon after war
commenced, ibe neavy government expen
diture would cause animation in several
trades, and money would circulate more free
lv. We do not think that the consumption
would be any less with than without war, and
in spite of the heavy American crop we
would have a period ot scarcity in the autumn
The visible supply for England is still 350,
000 below last year, and spinners hold noth'
ing. We see no prospect of this being made
up. It the American crop turns out 4,UU,
000. we may get 150,000 more for the re
mainder of the season, but Bombay is not
likely to give any excess. The receipts there
have fallen off greatly compared with last
year, and it is now believed that tne enure
crop is below the last one. Egypt and Brazil
are nearly finished, and it seems probable
that after the month ot June we shall receive
very little cotton till November or December.
just as happened last year. We do not see
even yet that our maximum stock is likely to
run above. 900,000 bales, and as a rise of d
occurred last summer in view of a scarcity in
autumn, surely with a stock ot oOU.OOO bales
less this year, and prices equally low, there
is room for recovery. It is not improbable
that a long period of dullness may yet lie be
fore us, but there are elements of strength
in the situation which will yet come to the
front, and we think that holders who have
patience to wait for the turn in the tide will
get their reward.
LETTERS FK03L THE PEOPLE.
teave Out the Hard Words.
Editors Appeal I am a frequenter of
the shrines of divinity, more commonly
designated as churches, and listen to the dis
courses of the divines with all due attention
I am, however, what I sign myself, and this
often discommodes me not being able to
comprehend the Greek and Russian phrases
used from the pulpit. I expect to attend
church next bunday, and trust the ministers
will exercise a little more adaptation, and if
they are lorced to use such Latin words as
hydrophobia, psychological, etc., to explain
their meaning. Not being a short-hand
writer, I cannot note down the words to ask
my mother when 1 go home, and 1 am una
ble to understand the above language on ac
count of my being so ignorant.

I make bold to suggest the following: That
they delay their entertainment until Lent is
over (April 22d), and then give it for the ben
efit of the orphans, charge the usual admis
sion fee, and invite the public to attend. By
so doing they will confer a great favor on
many who have heard such descriptions as to
warrant their desiring an opportunity of at
tending one of the very recherche affairs un
der the auspices ot the miians. As the ob
ject is a benevolent one, it is very probable
that on the occasion the park will be crowded
to overflowing. "
No Contradiction.
" Thou shalt not bow down to them, nor
serve them ; lor 1 am a jealous Uod, visiting
the iniquity of the fathers upon the children
unto the third and fourth generation that
hate me." " The soul that smneth, it shall
die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of
the jather, neither shall the father bear the
tmquity of the son.
Editors AppEAii A correspondent in
quired in the Appeal a few days ago, how,
in Exodus, it could be said that the sins of
the fathers should be visited upon the chil
dren, while in Ezekiel it is said the children
shall net bear the sins of their fathers. The
contradiction is apparent onlv. as there is an
apparent contradiction in stronomy when
we are torn that tne pianeis move irom west,
to east, and yet they are spoken of in the
almanacs as being " retrograde," that is,
moving from east to west, io make the
point understood, we will take the instance
of parents living in extravagance and de
bauchery, thus wasting their substance and
destroying their health. Their children are
born in poverty and are punv and sickly.
and so by physical law the sins of the parents
are visited upon the children. The father
commits a heinous crime. In such a case a
portion of his punishment, in eastern lands,
was for the government to seize all his pro
perty and pull down the house in which he
lived, tthus punishing the innocent family for
tne tault ot the guilty parent. J. he
readers of the Arabian Xiqht's Enter
tainment will call to mind instances of
this. This Ezekiel declares, is a mode
of punishing moral guilt which
the creator will not pursue with respect to his
creatures. In the first case God speaks as the
author of physical law, and in the other as a
governor awarding punishment tor deviations
from moral rectitude. If the correspondent's
question was put in good faith, with a simple
wish to be relieved of perplexity, this expla
nation will be satisfactory; if it was put with
the mere desire of representing the bible as
contradicting itself the question will be
asked: Why were the two statements, so
given in the book as to appear contradictory?
V hy were they not made as clear as the sun
at noonday? They are just as clear, on in
vestigation, and just as obscure at the first
glance. The glance shows the sun moving
from west to east, investigation shows that
no such motion occurs. If nature and the
bible have the same origin they will have
features in common, and here we have an in
stance of it. If we can believe the teachings
of nature, notwithstanding difficulties and
obscurities, we cannot rationally refuse to re
ceive the teachings of the bible when they ex
hibit similar peculiarities. a got.
