IV 1 many years Mr. lirink ! was a director in this road, and in lSoOhe wi nt to Iicg'.and and purchased the iron for the. first fifty mil. s ef the road. Ho was a'lerward president of the Memphis and Little Kock rai road, and to anxious was he to see tLis cuteipiise completed that he , nt much of Lis fortune in his efforts t serve Memphi". The deceised leaves nly oua brother, Jc.ha II. Hnukley, and his two sisters, Jane linnkley an! Mary Ann S. -udder. It maybe tiuly said that H. C. Seinkley was the loremo-.t champion of all i:i-aures calculat.d to develt-p the resources ( Ve.t Tennet'-e", and he never wavered in Li belief that Memphis was destined to be- Mine on? of the leading cities of the Union. 'I.j was a liberal-minded man ia thu fullest -rn-.J of the word, aud liberal-handed, too. He wa-s the possessor of large wealth for many years, and his generous assistance was never withheld Irom any patriotic enterprise or any worthy charitable project. The loss of its first citizen is aiaocg the greatest mis fortunes that can befall community, and! it was not, therefore, urprisiijj' tlat the dctlh of Rolieri C. Vriakltr &a rw-i'fored such univerial aorrow. It would bo diflicult to ltaignato any citizen whoso loss would be more generally or nevcre-!y felt by tho vop'.e of Memphis, by whom he -w.w loved and admired. la tho w v.d circl', Mr. lirinkVy was on-l or the most 1-ivaV.o mou we ever knew. labia manner i:u was simple ana unpretentious, but tho ! dignity of his character never failed to im-r-i those with whom he came ia coi.tacl. He c-as indelibly hone, and to freat was Lis pablic and private liberality that he diminished his magnificent fortunp, instead of aiding to it. All the Leat elements of human nature were- developed in Lim to the highest degree. Ho was truthful, he was honent, and he was generous. He had a nature which seemed to attract all, without repelling any one. His wife almost wor shiped Lim. Daring his long and agonizing illness she devoted herself to him with an abandon which only a wealth of love could inspire. Yester day a large and sorrowing procession fol lowed the remains of K. C. Drinkley throueh the heart of a city to whose growth and prosperity he had so largely contributed, and did no much by his energy, enterprise and public spirit to advance, to Klmwood, whero he was buried amid tho sorrows cf a vajtt concourse of ftiends. In Ivmwood there sleep many of our old citizens, Lut this con secrated s-pot never took to its embrace a bet ter man thau Uobert C. Urinkley. i..i:kioi.i. hi pf.h fici ai.it v. Sunday morning sweet day to the chris tian. I'ay abu-ed by making it of leal ob ligation when it ought to stand upon a far higher obligation the christian's love for it. But those enemies to Christianity those blunderers as fo tho spirit that animates! Chri.-t the theologians, have sunk the "first day of the week" to the level of the Jewish Sabbath. They have made it a clay that mntt be observed by infidel as well as christian, and to, in their blind ignorance or the spirit of Christ's teaching, they have desecrated it. It is the day of christian rest, spite of theo logical attacks upon it, and we may properly, this morning, turn cur attention to a religious subject. 1 ' licving that a religious subject is not confined to this world, lot stretches on to another how sacred, how awful, is such a subjevt! We have discussed politics, trade, fureixn war, principles of State and national expediency, all the week, but now we think or thu life to come; the immortality that Christ brought to light, and we speak in view of that immortality as he taught it. We do not take the view of the thecl gians and preacher. They are recreant to one of the grandest truths chratianity knows. The early christians loved the thought of immortality. Hope, joy. exulta tion and happiness were connected with it. The preachers and theologians of to-day have connected immorUIily with fear, dread, pun ishment, suffering, brimstone, fire, hell. Shamo to them! Net that these things are not connected with the future, but that the prevalent christian idea, soon after Christ's day.was a happy, an exultant, a iioptiui i wi. Now the preachers -d theologians live mado the prevalent idea connected with im mortality one of fear, which shows how they have sunk into pitiful dejTad.d.4n, for the belief in immortality i- full of b p- and soars in glorious anticipate c-, abounding in exul tation. With this expression as to the teach ers of religion, who have fallen below the lofty ideal of Christ, we can easily fall down to Mr. Ingersoll, the blundering critic of Christianity. lie is powerful only when he attributes to the bible the wretched errors and arrogant stupidities of the theologians. He says tho bible caused the inquisition and a thousand other atrocities, while the creatures who committed those vil lainies took advantage of the politi cal position they held to forbid the reading of the bible. That book was con cealed, hidden, kept out of the way. The priests knew that if the people read that book they would see how falsehood was put in the way of the charity and love of Christ. Yet IogerBOll attributes what was done by tho priest to the bible, which had to be hid to make their crimes pass. Mr. Ingersoll in this sliowa Lis shallowness, lie is, however, doing good in bringing theologians to the test, and so ho is helping the cause of Christ by showing up the "Lord, Lord" creatures whom Chrii.t never knew. Reading the speeches of Ingerco'd, see one grand de ficiency. He cannot distinguish the facts revealed from the form in which they are given. The chestnut grows in a rough burr, therefore the chestnut is a pernicious fruit. The man does not know whether there 1b a God or not, or whether, if there is a God, he occupies the relation of "our Father;" whether there is a future life, or whether we perish with the pig and the dog. Y'et he proposes that we shall exchange our knowledge for his ignorance ia short, Christ's teachings for shallow Ingersoll bosh. Thank you, Mr. In gersoll, we can give you credit for your smart ness, your powers of repartee, your tura for ridicule, your wit (if irreveranceand ignorance can be wit), but we will take none ofyour's in our's, thank you. Yon are too superficial, too much wanting in logic, too ad pavtandum, too Fourth-of-July-cracker, with no LsaiLot behind tho powder. Faine was too deficient in profundity to do more than make a wave on the surface, and Inger.oll is too "summer- breezy" to do even that. No wLitecaps will show on the sea the Ingersoll breath linger, over; his effort is powerless and ill of odor, Such is our judgment, but if we took up the Ingersoll arguments, should we not be "floored?" We are not theologians, , and we do not like those dieguisera of truth, there fore we have no hesitation in saying that we smile at the foliy of the. peenhj who arr,r-it the Iccersoil forgenes as genuine com. We cannot go extensively into his crudities, al though we tthscrt that they can easily be niet. We will take kis assertion that the language of the bible shows that t!i3 writer know noth ing of tho real stellar system, uof Ling of what geology has taught us; nothing of what modern achievements of knowledge Lave made clear to our understanding. We ac knowledge that we are picking out of Mr. Ingcrsoll's argument hat we please, but it looks to ns as if we were taking an urgument that is a favorite of his. If he stood beside our desk at this moment, we would take this or any other argument he preferred. We take this, however. ICipasion in Genesis rakiang in the Hebrew means a solid sub stance beaten out, as copper is beatee intf? sheets, and so en of other things. Tna "beaten-ont" idea is exactly the Hebrew notion, and Ingersoll is right, and so he is in some similar statements. Pid the inspirer of scripture, therefore, know uoiLin; beyond that idea' Nothing of the expansive ah ? Nothingof the blue void which no hand can touch? If Mr. Ingersoll had understood his subject, he would not have ventured on so 6iliy an assertion as to say that God, who knows all that science eontains, would talk to ignorant man, who knows nothing of sci ence, in the language of science. Lot Mr, Ingersoll learn Ashantee, and go to Africa; will he begin to teach those ignoramuses of science in tho language he understands, or in the language they understand? Greek is said to be one of tho most perfect languages; if Colonel Ingersoll understands Greek, will he speak to the J.shantee blacks in Ashantee L or in Greek? If ho wants to teach them sci ence, will he use a language consistent with the Ashantee mode of thought, or wicii the scientific language familiar to. the American philosopher? The language of instruction is not guaged by the knowledge of the teacher, but by tho ignorance of the learner. Clear as that fact if, this man that knows Letter than the bible can teach him, has not been aula to understand it, yet he can ask the christian to give up his assurance of heaven, bis rest in the consolation of religion, his at-sured peace when confiding in "Oar Father who is in heaven," for the abyss of Ingersoll ignorance! We think Ingersoll is uninten tionally doing good, as the Jews brought out the loftiness and grandeur of Christ through their contradiction, but he strikes us as be ing one of thosti "smart" specimens of shal lowness that "don't amount to much." If wo should ever get something more profound, more reasonable from his hand, we will give him credit accordingly; at present he is only at the outer port of scepticism and biblical criticism, and throws his disc like an un tutored pupil. ra Quite Enough.

The counsel for the plaintiff, ILomquist, at the Brat sitting hand ed in a document in which he asked the court to order that King Oscar und the fiscal cilice ihouid, under pain of an execution, pay Lis c'.iei.t the sum ot twenty seven thousand and ei:hty-ono crowns, 88 ore. on account of tht -e suppressed payment. Tne defendants opposed the demand, on the ground that, in the judgment of tue chief stadtholder, Miss d : la Binche was not the person she repre sented hi-rseit t.i be. but was really a Miss Auroia Horenhna Magnussen. In or-d-r to rebut this assertion, the plaintiffs rnuasel moved that the court should call upon tl.e d'-tendan's to bring into court a letter Trom GasUv- IV, Adoiphe. to Charles XIV, Johann. which was among the papers left by O-c ir I. besides two reports under which lilts de la Brache bad obtained the endow-m-iit ntruelv. a report of the imperial coun cillor, on Koch, dated lCO, which was Midi! open the express order of Charles XV, arid ia cocsiq jence of which an annuity of twelve hundred crowns had been granted to Miss de U Brache since ls6l, and the report of t ii Deputies L'hr and Mankell, made in lo the then minister for foreign affairs, Count C.

Mormon Hyeterles. Aooie Thompson, a shrewd lady, and con versant with the tricks the Mormons carry on behind the curtain, has the following in the Salt Lnke Tribune in reference to certain facts in tho initiation of Mrs. Owen Miles, an Koglish lady recent'y victimized by the unscrupulous saints: "When Caroline Owen went t) the Endowment house she entered at the north door and gave her name to the ricorder. She then paesed inside to be washed, taking off her clothes until she was as naked as the hour she was born. She was then washed lrom beadto foot; afterward she was covered with oil and blessed by the holy priestess; her head, ears, eyes, nose, mouth, neck, arms, heart, breast, bn.ck and all par's of her body anointed. She then put on her new garments aud received her new noma in a whisper by the officiating priestess, the woman who lied so beautifully in court. Passing along she came before the Great Jehovah and Elohim, they being in another room, and commenced reading the ritunl of the order. 'Let us go down and make man,' etc., which is all too tedious to meatiou. Miss Owen passed cn from one change to another, having her robes and her apron on to appear before the master of ceremonies to rtceive the oaths. Stand ing straight, as shown by the elder, bringing her right arm at an ac?lo,tbea placing it across her throat as the terrible words were uttered by the officiating rriest, then drawing and c-Er.enaicg ner aim straigni cut and cringing it back to a right angle, striking it straight to the eartn, interpreting tne oaths as Fooken. that her throat should be cut from ear to ear, that her heart should be cut out and that she be disembowelled and her body be buried in the depths of the Bea, etc., if Bhe s'.iould divulge anything pertaining to the ceremonies performed iu that house. This is not all the oat'us by a great deal. Miss Owen then received the grips, signs, tokens, etc. There are several of these which only the faithful can understand. Miss Uwea then passed on to taei other ''degrees, prayer, cir cles, etc Passing onward and upward she came to the veil or arch. lhiB being pre vious to her marriage.

Justice Miller before the Slate bar associ ation: "It requires all tbe veneration which age inspires for this mode j trial by jury of dispensing justice, and all that eminent men have said of its value ir practice, to prevent our natural reason from revolting against the system, and especially some of its incidents. If a cultivated Oriental were told tor the hrst time that a nation, which claims to be in ad vance of all others in its love of justice and its inethoda cf enforcing it, required as one of its fundamental principles of jurisprudence that every controversy between individuals, and every charge of crime against an of fender, should be submitted to twelve men without learning in tbe law, often without any other learning, and that neither party to the contest could prevail until all the twelve men v ere ct one opinion in bis lavor, he would cer tainly b3 amazed at the proposition. Nor have tbe European nations differed much with him in their estimate ot trial by jury. It has been well understood and received the careful consideration ol continental jurists for a great many years, without being adopted by any ct them, in the lorm that we have it trom longland. iMatiy attempts have been made to introduce it in some modified shape, but I think it is safe to say that it has not in its essential Anglo-Saxon feature met the approval ol any people except those ot that race. In the days when kings exercised arbitrary power, the jury was. among tbe sturdy, liberty-loving Eoglishmen, a valuable barrier against oppression by the crown. But ia this country, where the people are sov ereign, the jury is but too otten the mere re flection of popular impulse, and the safety of an innocent man is more frequently found to depend on tbe firmness of the judge than the impartiality of the jury. Still it is probably wise that no man shall be convicted of an in famous crime until twelve fair-minded men are convinced of his guilt. I am also forced to admit, however, that even in civil cases my experience as a lodge has beemmuch more favorable to jury trials than it was as a practitioner. And 1 am bound to say that an intelligent and unprejudiced jury, when such can be obtained, who are instructed in the law with such clearness, precision and brevity as will present their duty in bold re lief, are rarely mistaken in regard to facts which they are called upon to find." r Velio w."eve, At a recent health conventiou, held in Richmond, the following propositions were voted on separately and adopted: First rhe yellow-fever of 1873 was a specific disease, not indigenous to or origin ating spontaneously in the United States, and its appearance in this country during that year was due to specific, causes. Second A quarantine, established with such rigor and precision as to produce abso lute non intercourse, will prevent the im portation of the specific causes of yellow fever. - Third It is the duty of the general gov ernment to aid in the establishment of a practical and proper quarantine by all the means in its power. Fourth It is the duty of the general gov ernment to appoint a commission of experts to make a thorough investigation into the causes of yellow-fever end the best method to prevent its introduction into this country, and to make sucn a a appropriation as will permit of securing the services of the best men and best means for carrying out such lpvejfi'ffatjniv- . . Fifth 1 hat it is the duty of the genera' gov ernment to invite foreign nations to co-operate with it in the establishment of uniform and effective international quarantine regu lations. Sixth That whatever may be the perma nent value of the quarantine, there is no doubt of the importance and value of inter nal sanitary measures in the prevention or modification of epidemic yellow-fever, and this association strongly urges upon State and municipal authorities the great responsi bility which rests opon them on this account, at a t4n3 yfcjvn no disease is prevalent or threatening.

Wlxat Beamptlon Is. The St. Louis Repuhliean gives the follow ing explanation of the government specie resumption, appointed by law to take place January 1, 1S73: "It seems that the bank ers, who surely opght to know better, will nevsr learn tht 'resumption' means only the Eayment of coin by the government to the olders ofits notes, and that the banks don't need coin after resumption any more than they do now before resumption. If the legal tender act were repealed or declared uncon stitutional by tho supreme court, the case would be dmereni ' but so long as that stands as the imperative law Of the land, no bank and no individual can be required to pay coin any more than now. So long as greenbacks remain in circulation there is no possible rea son why coin should be used, and there is no reason to expect that it will be used to any great extant, for the paper currency will ba infinitely more preferable in all erdinaiy tranaa&tiops. Jf the legal-tender character of tbe treasury notes teasea on the first of January, there would be some excuse for the banks wanting to have a hoard of coin on hand and betraying anxiety about the part they will play in resumption. As it is, re sumption means absolutely nothing but that acyoody wi,o has Pfty dollars or more In greenbacks can go" to the sub-trpnury in New York, and nowhere else, and get gold or silver dollars, according as the government prefers, for paper money. That is all there is in resumption, and it is very different from whai, the general impression is it will be. It should bs said, however, that some reports from Washington indicate ikaf Mr. Sherman intends to make some regufcuious whicu will extend the sphere of refine pticp. It is said he will authorize all the assistant-treasurers to redeem legal-tenders in coin drafts on New York. That he has power to make such a regulation, or that the government can afford to supfdast the express companies and make transfers ot tuniii to New York, is not very clear." Phrslogaonr.

Its IhsI situation was upon the eastern bord-r of the bannock res ervation, aud it was intended by the railroad company that it sliou'd make a flying leap across the forbidden ground to tne banKs 01 the Snake river. Bat in this was not prac ticable before the winter might set in, a com-promis-e was made with the Indian agency, whereby no liquor was to be sold, and so the town was permitted to make a tempoiary landing on this nominal homo cf the red--skins. Of CDtirse, then, there aie 110 "ua loouf," for what is a saloon without whi.-key, and what ii a railror.d town or any other town in this western country withjut them both? THE 8 ALT LAKE VALLEY. All the noise, bustle, snap-crack and dfyil-may-care ex'-iiiaretion that pervaded Oneida by night and day are consequently w an tine ia this new settlement of B p.ck' Beck. Th; coaches and wagons are drawn up nt the sta tion to receive their passengers aud freigh,'. They earn their money, but it seems to utl'rd no p leasure, for they come and go like iiineol processions, mourning because whisky is ntt. Nevertheless, I apprehend that the rca! bnn cess ot the country doei not sutler by the deprivation. Every step that is gained in the diieetion nt Montana is a step leailicg to the comfort of individuals and the prospe-ity oT the nation. The extension through Mush valley winds along on a k-vel surface, smoothed out by naturo among great bowl ders of lava, v.-'.iicb, if continuous, would have almost defied engineering skill, giant-powdtr and m'Bey. B.-fore ve come to this slisht'y downward slope, we have ascended until we passed throuah a narrow gateway, whose buttrf tser.at the limit ofencirc'icg mountains, stand perpendicularly tut a few tett on eiiht r side of the track. In 1 emote ages this must have been the northern boundaiyof the tiJ Salt hike, which has now receiled iu n son! w' erly direction more than a hundred miles. I re ciseiy in this gateway the water sprin.es now divide, part of them trickling down to Saiike river, ur.d thence throueh the Columbia to the Pacific m the chancel forced by tbe dis ruption, and tbe otheis seeking the gradually contracting level of S lit L!.ke. The "bench marks," easily traced thiouzh all the val leys to southern Utah, showing tbe former flow of tho water, bejjin at lbe.se encirccus gate-posts and keep their exact line of alti tude for four hundred milea. At various times in traversing the country we Lava traced these indications, and it is absolutely demonstrable that whiit is novr calied tne Greap Salt Lake, being a saline deposit of ninety miles long and fe-ity miles wide, was once a fresh wa er lake of more tl un iour hundred miles in extent from north lo south, and two hundred from east to west more than twice the siza nf Lake Superior. Ihe long chain of the Wasatch mountains was Us eastern barrier, while it spreni itself cwr a great part cf Utah and Nevada in the west, and of Idaho at the north. Its recession bus left bare the Cache and Salt L ikevallLjs tir.d their connections, as well aa what is called the Great American desert, through which tne Central Pacific road is built. Probably thera is no urea on the continent moro bar ren m its natural state than tais that has old lake bottom, and none been made so productive by irriira'iin. Ihe Ltati and Northern. the Utah Central, and the Utah Southern railionds tra verso it longitudinally, arid their branches spread across it so that if, as so.oe persons suppose from a recent rise of the lake, this whole ground should be again submerged tor a few centuries and then become dry a;;ain, the people of a future age may wonder who dropped this big gridiron in the basin. And yet our eastern friends seem to know as Htt:e about these great railroad enterprises of the west as may cjme to the knowledge of our imaginary descendant's. Their stocks and bonds are not for sale in tbe gambling mar ket, but are owned chiefly by the Mormon people, who manage their property economi cally and profitably to themselves in opening up this great agricultural arid mining coun try, A few miles beyond the little station of Black Rock, the Marsh valley spread out upon tho rich and extensive plains of Snake, river. Here is an unlimited ran go of pas turage, and for a hundred miles the road will run through what ia to some extent a firming land of tho Indians, which, vhdi il is stolen from them after its valu-j is ascer tained, will be peopled by settlers. Almost on the line, too, are tl.e new gold mines of Lost river, to which a large emigration is an ticipated in the spring. The especial "Iject of my visit to Black Rock was to Bid ilr. Danilsjn, the Indian agent. While at Soda Springs during the last three months we had seen many of tho Indians. Ihej are scattered in the summer season through all the region bordering on their res et vation, to which they generally relura in the winter to live upon the crumbs that fall from the government table. Now if is a fa;-, attribute it to what cause we may, that there is not the slightest danger to life or property from Indians in Mormon settlements, (ten tiles say that this safety arises from the j int hatred of Mormons and Indians of the .ov- o..ub.t. HwwMMMy - Mad I bplieve thtim, because I am a witness of its truth that it is because their people never cheat the Indie r.s, and neverrefuse them food. At any rate, I feif perfectly safe, even when mounted or, a good horse, and with a good gun most desiti-.bie of all property among the many Indians we met piiles away from the village. These liannocks, whose tribe was on the warpath at the north, never molested us. They came to our doer with game, fish and skir.s, for which we "swapped" with them if we had occasion for such thinps. It not, ve gavo them bread, meat and coffee. We never locked our doors against Indians, but we slept at night w.th loaded guns by our bed sides, in anticipation ol & possible visit from white road agents. A BANNOCK WAIL. From those of tbe Bannocks who could speak English we beard tbe same universal tale of woe. How I wish that cue eloquent old man could nave'sorae useless politician's half hour on the door of congress! Ke. did not talk from a rostrum or a pulpit in five periods of rhetoric, but mounted cn a sorry pony, whose drcoiug head seemed lo be bowed down in sympathy with his master's vrief, he told of the wronsja of hia people. "Indian kill 'em two white men 'c-aue white men steal 'era squaw. Spose ladian steal white man squaw'? White man 110 kill In dian ? So white man clean 'em out all In dian! steal 'em land, steal 'em squaw, steal 'em horse, cheat 'em Indian, starve 'em In dian, kill 'em Indian! All right; Indian die!" And suiting tuei action to the word the old man rolled off upon tho ground, folded his arms across his breast in imitation of death as he added, "IJeap happy now!" GOVEBN'MEN'T HATIOSS AMD (JOVEUXM!!ST RELIGION. They were loud in their complaints agamst the Indian agent, and many of the gel-tiers seemed to think they had causa. They said that in winter they had scanty food in the reservation, and in sumuier were driven off to get their own subsistence without powder or shot. It was intimated that the agent drew their rations in the meantime for his own profit. When I caui3 to call up on Mr. JJanilson here, I frankly told him waat was said of him by the Indians, and by the set tlers who are obliged to feed the Indians, who would otherwise starve. " It is not the first time that I have heard these stories," said Mr. Danilson, " and I am sorry to say that there is some truth in them, only they unfortunately accuse the wrong party. It is congress that is to blame for making in sufficient appropriations. " In a long con versation with Mr. Danilson some curious developments came out touching the philan thropic policy of the government, which acta like a mother-in-lawin the attempts to make people happy in her own way. The religious welfare of the Indians is impartially cared for by allotting the reservations among tho different sects. Thoso Shoshones and Ban nocks, of whom there are one thousand of the former and bix hundred of tho latter, are turned over to the Methodists, the agent forcibly remarking that he "would be d d if anybody but a Methodist should preach to them, for it was the order." At the same time he obsetvea tuat an ndmu had no idea of religion, any way, and government didn't do this with the expectation of converting them; it was only to keep the churches from quarreling. In a temporal way it desires to civilize the wild Bannock, aud this is the in genious plan it adopts to make him a farmer. Vyheri the spring opens every Indian who w'ill work on the land has Lis rations contiii ued that is, the ratio of the rations that the agent has been able to serve out. Then, these Indians who do cot choose to be farmers ate turned loose to hunt upon tuo reservation whence all the game has been killed off by the emigrant and cattle-trains, or to search for it where they can. And this hunting is to be done without powder cr shot. To sell either to them is a penal offense. Thin is simply turning them over to the charity of tbe settlers, who are themselves poor, but who are prompted by policy, as well aa hu manity, to see that they do not suffer for want of food, "la fact, " said Mr. Dauilson, "the amount of rations allowed 07 govern ment ia bo miserably small that most of tbe Indians must be driven oft for the greater Fart of the year, or all of them would 6tarve. f I divided equally what I have it would not amount in value to Sve cents per head daily." By dint of teaching Indiana la this novel way to become farmers, one hun dred and twenty-five families have boon forced to cultivate some of thu r.ch bottom land on the linake river; but from all accounts the products of their farms docs not much exceed ihe government stipend of five cents per day to each individual working upon them. Upon askirg Mr. Danilson what he thought of the proposition to turn the management of the Indians over to tha army, he replied that while the Indian agents were tbe Lost civilizenij the officers of the army could undoubtedly maintain better order and might entirely avoid war and raid ing if they were allowed to feed and clothe the Indians comfortably, but that neither civilian or soldier could eep them quiet in any other way. I am more than ever con vinced by this interview that the civilization and conversion of savages is of smalt ac count, even if practicable, in comparison with fslj stomachs for them and the safety to white men that would result from placing all these tribes under the absolute control of the army, which should be sustained in its duties by sufficient appropriations, on the principle that feeding is infinitely cheaper than fighting. And this absolute control should extend to the white population on the borders of the reservation, so LLat in t.11 dif ficulties between the races prompt and even handed justice should be meted oat. The other night, during the performance of Ilamlet at the Fifth Avenue theater, the graveyard scene was in progress, and every one waa wrapped in melancholy.

Boston Tmnscript, Ellsworth (Me ) letter: "One man described to me his night of peril twelve hours in the water clinging to the masts, alter a day of great labor, beat about by winds p.nd wares. One of their number was washed away. 'We threw him a rope and would have lashed Lim to the mast, but he was too weak to hold on.' 'How did you teel when you saw him going down?' some one asked. 'O, I did not min it much, for I thought we must all go soon; I did not be lieve we could hold out long, for every time the waves rolled up we had to duck our heads under water so as not to be swept off.' He stopped talking for a minute, as if it were more than he cared to think about, and then he said: 'but that man was tbe only single man among us. He had no wife and no children, and thaf, I believe, is the reason he could not hold out. I think it was my wite and my home which kept me alive that night. It I had not remembered them I should have let go many times.''

Cblcngo Tribune. Foht Li.NiOLV, D. T., November 17. Having noticed in the papers cf the last few days various and confradicto.y statements concerning the deilh of M, jor General Iteno, at the bt'ile of South mountain, I deem it a matter of duty, not only in Ihe inteiest ot truth, but because General K-no was a class mate and warm personal Iriend of mine, to give to the public a corrtet and circumstan tial account of Lis death. Of the statements which I have seen thus far, that of General J. D. Cox is the nearest correct; but yet he errs iu saying that General Keuo was killed by a shot from the enemy s skirmishers. Gen eral Ueno arrived at my position 00 the crest of the moun-'am between subset and dark; the battle Lad then viitea'ly ceased, although there was still some desultory tiring, and I bad turned l'ureli s battery and a section of Captain battery Cook's Eighth Massachusetts upon tbe en- emy moving airainst Hocker's column, ridge north of tbe then pushing up the Uagerstown road. It was whilst directing this Sre that General Ueno arrived, and, after remaining some fifteen or twenty min utes, he mounted his horse w:th the (ap parent) intention of returning to Lis own headquarters. Instead, however, ot de scending the hill directly, he crossed tbe road and entered a wood occupied by a por tion ot my division (a Massachusetts regi ment, I think), and, unfortunately, he en tered lust in front of the line. At that mo ment a volley was fired by the enemy from a wood beyond an open space ol tour or tve bundled yards which lay between tbe op posing lines, a kind of parting volley, for they bred but once, and had entirely disappeared from the field when I arrived shortly after with a section of artillery. In the meantime the troops were resting after their hard day's work; but that volley, so sudden and so un expected, brought them to their feet, and caused a good deal of unnecessary and ran dom firing; and it was then that one of my staff (either Captain Mighels or Captain Rawolie, I think the former) noticed that General Reno was reeling in his saddle, and, hastening to h;3 assistance, had bim t.'.ktn from bis horse and carried back to the bat tery. On seeing me, he said, "Sam, I'm a dead mail." I said something fo the tftVct that I hoped not, and that he would soon be as well as ever; but he seemed to realize the true character of bis wound better than I, and only repeated, "I'm a dead man." He was then taken toward the hospital, which was near by, but ho died before reaching it. A caretul exami ratiou of the wound was made by Surgeon Cutter, who had belonged to Ihe general's staff, and also (I think) by Surgeon A. T. Watson, medical director of my division. The result of this examination left no doubt as to the tact that the bullet had enter ed from the rear, and, passing through a minia ture picture of Mrs. Reno, which was iu bis watch-fob, had emerged from the front. On this point I remember distinctly that Surgeon Cutter (if not Surgeon Watson also), was decided in his opinion that the shot was au accidental one from our own troops, and de livered near at hand, indeed, General Reno was himself aware of this melancholy fact, and referred to it in feeling terms when be ing taken from his horse, as the officr be fore mentioned reported at the time. Such, in short, is the Ead stoiy of the death of the trallant and chivalrous Jesse L. Reno, whose last words ere: "I can be no longer with my men; let them know that I will still ba with them in spirit." Very respectfully, your obedient servant, 8. r. stcrgis, Colonel Seventh Cavalry, Erevtt Mnjor-Uenerul. TAL.3IAUE AOXtt TI1II3VJES He Describes the Criminal Clauses and Ascertains how They do Their Work L.lfe of a Woman Who Kama Jler Bread as a Clerk. New York Sun: "TLe fact is that all mu sical instruments are to be brought in for the service of the Lord," said Mr. Talmage, yes teiday morning just before Mr. Arbuckle pealed form a sonorous Ave Maria, and Mr. Morgan executed a fantasia that required all the organ stops and the bell chimes. The text waa from Luke: " A certain man went down from Jerusa lem to Jericho and fell among thieves, which stripped him ot his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving bim half dead." " 'Give me two stout detectives for this night's work,' I said to the chief official; 'men who not only look muscular, but who are musclar;' and I said to the detectives, 'Have you loaded pistols and clubs? Show me crime! Show me crime! Show me the worst class of people to be saved by the pow er of Christ's gospel.' The officer proposed I should take a disguise lest 1 should be as saulted. I answered, 'No, I am going to take the risk.' "People spoke to me, 'Why do you not look after the criminal classes of Brooklyn?' I answer it was not for lack of materia'. There is every kind cf crime in Brooklyn, from manslaughter to a chicken thief. Laughter. J I do not know that there is any place in the land where you can more easily get your pecket picked, your house burglar iss?d, your signature counterfeited, or your estate swindled than ia Brooklyn. But the great depot of crime for this cluster of cities is New York." Mr. Talmage spoke of the respect which crime pays to law, and told how Inspector Murray, although a man of comparatively slight stature, sometimes single-handed ar rests four or five desperadoes, all because he is backed up by omnipotent justice. Mr. Talmage then described a bar-room in to which the officers took him. The officers told him wonderful stories of the desperate men at the different tables. The preacher walked from one end of the pulpit to the other, pointing out imaginary tables and de scribing the different groups of criminals whispering and concocting dreadful crimes. "Here are men talking over last night's exploits. They drink, but rot so as to be come unconscious. They keep the eyes clear and the hands steady for the night's work. They tell how they escaped by tho basement door, or the second story how the nullet grazed their heads I What is this bandaged hand ? That was cut by window-glass as the burglar thrust his hand through the fastening. How did that man lose his eye? It was destroyed by the premature flash of gunpowder in the store lock." "What, are those men planning at the other tabie? They are in collusion with a servant girl to leave one of the back windows unfastened. They know the time when the wealthy man will leave his place of dissipa tion and start for home, and they intend to lie in wait to bring him down with a slung shot! Who knows how many false keys, brass knuukles and revolvers are here? "Ruiu tLey must have, to prepare them for murder. Not ordinary rum, but rum poisoned futir times. First, by the manufac turer; second, by the wholesale dealer; third, by tne retail dealer, and fourth, by the sa loon keeper. These men calculate to the quarter of a glass how much to take for their work. They must not take a drop too much! "There are twenty-three or twenty-four hundred of these professional criminals in this cluster of cities. They are as thoroughly trained in crime as for a good purpose medi cal colleges train doctors, law colleges train lawyers, theological colleges train clergymen. They have gone through tho freshman, soph omore, junior and senior classes, and gradu ated with a diploma signed by all the faculty of darkness. Applause. "These men are no unskillful murderers, plunderers or blackmailers. They must have something difficult to do; something of peril; some chance lor bravado. There are about sixty prcfesssonal bank robbers, who will get concealed in a bank and spring out" Mr. Talmage sprang out "at the watchman, se cure him and examine the cashier's books at their leisure, to see whether he keeps his ac counts correctly. Laughter. "Here aie the men who steal canceled checks and practice on a man's signature un til they get ono as perfect as the forgery of C. Yandetbilt's signature in 1S70, on which seventy-five thousand dollars was paid at sight. "Here are the pickpockets, six hundred of them. They sit beside you in the stage and pass your fare. They help you look ever the goods when you are shopping. They weep beside you at the funeral. They sometimes bowtheir heads beside you in the house of God. They do their work with such adroit ness that your affliction at the loss i3 soft ened by your admiration at the skill of the operation. Laughter. The most skillful ot these pickpockets are women. Some of the pickpockets take the garb of clergymen and look like doctors of divinity." Mr. Talmage simulated a prim D.D.. "They dress with white cravats and look as though they were about to pronounce the benediction, and al! the while they will be watching where your portmonnaie is." Lioghter. Mr. Talmage described the shoplifters exquisite ladies dropping goods into croco dile peckets large enough to swallow every thing, and the description cf the crocodile pockets was bo vivid that the congregation laughed. Then he described the thieves who break the windows of jewelry stores, run off a block, turn around and look innocent, and join in the crowd, crying lustly, "Stop thief." I Laughter. I "Do these men accumulate much? No, moat of it iroes to the receiver of tbe Rtolen crooda. Jf they iet fifty thousand dollars they live poor and die poor. "A gentleman sitting in this assemblage," Mr. Talmago continued, "this morning told me thai an employer said to a young woman in his store, Yr,u must dress better.' She said: 'How can I on six dollars a week? I pay four dollars for board, and have only two dollars a week for clothes and car-fare.' The employer replied: 'You must get it in some other way.' I do not know how that incident affects jou, but when it was told to me it made my blood tingle; every drop of it, from scalp to heel, tingled with indignation." "Go 'Mt're. We are Iialf Married -os ; a-mian ip tne Job." Cincinnati Cnmmerrinl 'KnvamYr 1 7V. . ' A special from Vincennes, Indiana, says that Johnson township, in that county, was the sceno of a funny attempt at a wedding last Wednesday, which has just been developed this morning. In that locality lives Mies Underwood, the fair daughter of an hnnpet and respectable old farmer. Two youiig men. One P. H. IVlnnmn a fnrsiar Ik. other. William Ayres, a miller, were paying court to the fair Melissa. She could not de cide which one to ravor, having promised each one to marry him, but finally, being wooed more ardently by Ayres, she ponsented 10 (aire nim ir H could be kept secret from Donovan. Ayres came to this city, secured a license and the necessary outfit, and on Wednesday, in pjimnnnv wilh William Q..I zer, a justice of the peace of this place, pro ceeded to the Underwood farm. The bridal party were on thn floor, anrl tha ec.m'ro 1 ,. .1 nearly finished the job, when Donovan, to me surprise ot every one, rushed in and de- clan-d that the ceremony sheuld priced no further. D nc,van grabbed the girl by the waist and fxolVmed, in pireous accents. "On, Mehs-a, don't jou cnasent, lor you promised me first.' Ayies had ber around the neck, and yelled in stentorian toue, 'Go on, et. q iirH, we are half married now; fiuish up the jjb." The magistrate, under the circum stanees.'refused to proceed, and Ayres. al though halt married, is no better off than before, and Donovan is disconsolate." lit it .n if. i:r..v.F.if, Zkd;r.ttri tothe Wiffofthltllt roand Slirtyr.

Meteoric (old. Galveston ( Texas) Neics: "The remark able specimen ot meteoric iron, resembling steel, picked up in the Mohan dessert and carried to Fort Yuma, a short time ago, is thus described: 'It weighs about a pound, and carries free gold, of which nearly a dol lar is on the surface. It is not magnetic, and has successfully resisted simple and com pound bp.ths of acid. In this respect it re sembles specular iron, but in no othej. One of its surfaces shows a fracture that reveals a cryslaline structure, the color of which is a steel gray, tinged with yellow. It has de fied tne best cold chisels in the blacksmith shop, and has not broken or chipped under heavy blows. If its composition can be imi tated it will produce the hardest and tough est alloy known.' " SoMECninamen in San Francisco are great ly troubled because, a few days ago, when they unearthed the dead body of one of their compatriots, intending to take it back to the Celestial kingdom, whither all good China men long to go when they die, they found tb.9 bedy turned to stone. The freight on th'? body will be as heavy as the body itself. aud therefore the Chinamen dislike the thought of paving the expenses as much as leaving the petrifaction in this country to adorn the collections ol a 1 ankee showman If the Celestials were chemists they might easily settle the matter by remembering that if their friend is really petrified they can never hope to find his body again, and all that they csn send back home is no more his "remains" than the Cardiff Giant was the sad relic of anybody.
