She and Kothachild then went t3 a rocm on Sev enth girett, and Hotnschild afterward took ber to Frank Wright's to board. He visited her there, and the pair used to quarrel fre quently, Kotuschiid on several occasions beatia? her in a terrible manner, she claimed, in crier to force her to give up her diamonds tibial. Mias Wright told at the time that Rothschild used to whip Bessie because the wagM of her shame were not larger, and would reproach her with the fact that other girls in the hoaso made more money than she. After leaving the Wright mansion, Bessie went to one or two oiher "houses" here, where she stayed a short time, and finally went to Cuicasro. She returned to this city and got ber diamonds out of pawn, and then after paying another visit t j Chicago, left that city on the eleventh of January, 1877, accompa nied by Kothschild. Before leaving Chicago, She told the landlady of the house where she stayed, that Rothschild had offered to marry her, but the woman warned her that it wai only her diamonds he wanted, , and not to be tooled by him. When she left Chicago she had ia her possession a solitaire diamond ring valued at Jiur hundred dollars, a cluster diamond ring valued at six hundred dollars, a heavy gold locket and chain valued at two hundred dollars, and a Eair of gold bracelets with cameo setting, eanle other artiek-s of jewelry, valued in all at about fifteen hundred dollars. The pair started for Tex if, and arrived at Marshall on the seventeenth of January, registering at tho Brooks house a3 A. Rothschild and wife, of Cincinnati. Ohio.

The mat ciwo bjck tj the hotel late in the afternoon, and, when asked when: he h:id left t!u woman, said she had stopped with some friends across the bayou, and remarked, carelessly, that he did not. believe she would ever come back again. It was noticed that he wore on his fingers two diamond tiugs, one of them a fine cluster, which h.id b.u conspicuous oa the woman's finger the day bsfore. lie was very restless, and paced h; room most of the liight, and tii scrvanti nrti "d ia the morning that ho had burned a It.' rf rupers ia the grate dur ing the nirfht. i remained at the hotel un til the first tm n 1 !t on the following Tuesday morning at four o'clock, when he started 08', checking his trunli lor Little Rock, and from thence to .Jeiui.lna. As the woman had been set down by those who saw her in his company as a sporting woman, nothing was thought of her having left hue, and after his statement that she stayed with hiends, no farther questions weie asked him about her. Ou the sixth of Feb ruary, uluiost two weeks later, an old colored woman, who had gone into the thicket of timber u'luded to above to gather some kind- line touud the body ot a woman lost bevond a small knoll, that hid it from the road, from which it was ihttant scarce! v ohm hundred yards. There w?s a small UuiU-t-hole in tbo left temple, the course of the bullet ranging downwacu, precluding tilO idea ot s.iieide; und, further, the lac was terribly bruised up, one eye being gouged out on tne ciieet. llv hair wa-i singed otf near where the bullet en tered, showing that thj pistol had been held close to her head when the fatal shot was fired. The body was in a remarkable good st.itc of preservation, and there was no uim- cu'.ty iu lecoL-uir.ii::; it as that of the woman who came villi the man register ing as A. Monrce. The earrings, brartpin, gold chain and cross, diauioud ricirs and all her other persouul possessions:, even to her pocket-handkerchief, were irone. Within fiity feet were found the beer-bottle, pickle bottle and the p vper m which the lunch had beu carried, with remnants of chickeu, crusts of bread and cake, und various other dtbris of the repat which they hud evidently eaten together, scattered arouud. lhe body was taken up, and, after bing photographed and a description of it taken, waa placed in a metallic case, subscribed Kr by the citizens, and buned. HOW IT CAME OUT. Kottichild returned to this city and went about bis business as usual, acting in much the same manner as he formerly did, visiting sportine hou-es aed places of amusement, although he seemed to be nervous and tici-orou?-. He imagined that some one was fol lowing him to kill him, and would frequently nPK people it they saiv trie man who was shadowing him. On the sixteenth of Februa ry he was in Ausr s club-house, and then aked somebody if tiiey did not see the man following hiui. lie drunk two or three drinks during the day, ami about half rat two o'clock in the morning went out and sat ou the steps.

The bullet had entered back ot the right temple, and, pacing around the front of the bku'l, bad lodged under the bridge of the no-se. lie said a man with black whiskers had shot him. He was re moved to his hom', and it was at first thought his wound would b fatal. In the meantime, the body.of poor "Diamond liessie" had been found, and inquiries having been set on foot by the Texan authorities, suspicion pointed toward Kotusebild, who was placed under police surveillance at hi? home, anil on his recovering sulh. ientiy to be moved, and alter he had been id. ntili-' I by parties trom Texas as the man last seeu in company with the murdered woman, he was removed to the City hospital, and from thence, on his recover-, to Texas cn a requisition from the gov ernor of tuit State.

"Now, who be ye would cross Loch Gyle this dark and storrr.y niht?" askod the ferryman, with much curiosity. "What is that lo you, you bald-head d snipe of the vall-:-yV" replied the chieftan, growing pale around the gills. "If I pay you a good round sum for your services it appears fo iac j our interest in the matter should end there.

Oat spoke the hardy Highland wight, while be unlocked his skiff and told them to get in, "I'll go, my chief, I'm ready; but, consider ing the terrible storm, I hope you will make it two dollars, although, a3 a matter of fact, I do not venture forth for a mere money con sideration, but for your winsome lady. 1 have been thtTe niyseit to some extent, and can appreciate the situation, so, by rty word, the bonny bird in danger shall net tarry. Sit a littid more in the middle to trim the boat, please, and here we go!" By this the storm grew loud apace, the water-wraith was shrieking, and things looked most almighty dark. But still, as wilder grew the storm and as the night grew drearer, adown the glen rode at leait a dozen men, with old Ullan at their head on a cream colored mule. "Oh, haste thee, haste!" the lady cries, "though tempesU round us gather, I'll meet the raging of the storm, but not my angry pa." So on they rowed amid the roar of waters fast prevailing, and when Lord Ullan reached the shore his wrath was dreudful to behold. And no wonder; for, wre dismayed, through storm and shade, he discovered his daughter out in the loat, with a smile on her lip and salt spray in her eye, and both arms around her lover. For a while it seemed that he would take it out of his hired man and the cream colored mu'e, as he declared ho would have the former beheaded as soon as he got home, and the latter he was hammering over the ears with a club. I'resently he took another tack. "Come back! come back! he cries 1u grief, "across the stormy water, and I'll for give your Highland boy, my daughter! oh. my daughter: ana also settle tne. bill with the ferryman." But the 53ung lady could not be caught so easily, bitner could the young man, who told the ferryman to press on, and then turn ing around in the boat, still keeping one arm around his sweetheart to prevent her fallint? out, called to the old gentleman: "Much obliged for your kind invitation, my dear sir, but we will not come back at pres ent. You can expect us, however, in the course of a week or ten days. Till then, adieu!" Laid U'.lan called again. 'Twas vain; the loud waves lashed the Bhore; return, they wouldn't think of it. In fifteen minutes they were on the other side, the ferryman was wondering what he would do with a twenty dollar gold piece, and the young couple were inquiring the way to the nearest justice of the peace.

A Cook in a Restaurant Who Das an Interesting .Reminiscence. - Chicago Journal: "There is employed in a restaurant in this city, in the capacity of a cook, a man named Louis Octaviua Woods. He is a Kentuckian by birth and an octoroon by blood. He is so very nearly white that a person would nave considerable trouble in pronouncing him other than a white man. In 1843 he killed a white man in self-defense. was tried, defended by Henry Clay and ac quitted. A reporter called at 162 South Clark street, where Mr. Woods is employed, and obtained the following particulars of the effair: The dav that the killimr occurred, Woods was standing in front cf the house of William Emmerson, a prominent citizen of Winchester. Clark county, .Kentucky, when a noted character named Charles Tanks, happened alone, under the influence of liq uor, and thought he would have some 'fun.' Drawing a bowie-knife, he made for W oods, j.bbing him once in the forehead, once in the-vm, and again in the body. He was a"u strike again, when Woods suddenly picked u. a stick of wood and dealt his as sailant a biw that killed bim instantly. As soon as it become known that a 'nigger had killed a wuitt. man, a large crowd assembled, and Mr. Woods ayR there is no doubt that they intended to kilt him. He took refuge in Emmerson's barn, wherthe field-hands and the ladies of the house defended, him until he was safely removed to jail. Here another at tempt was made to lynch him, but it was not successful. Woods at this time was a very young man, was free, and had borne a good character.. But the tide of public opinion in a slave State was strong against him. Henry Clay was then making an onslaught on old customs that were tainted with barbarity, and to him the old father of Woods appealed for aid. Mr. Clay, with the generonty which was characteristic of him, responded at once. The case was taken before the grand jury, a bill fouLd egainet the prisoner, and in six weeks the trial came oft. Mr. Clay had to contend against popular prejudice, that was bitter in the town whore the killing occurred, at a tkue when a colored man had no rights that a white man, however brutal and de praved, was required to respect. He never theless decided to fight it out there. The point was at issue whether a colored man did net have as good a right to defend his life as a white man. In defense of his theory that he had, Mr. Clay made one of the most pow erful speeches ot his life, and the jury re turned a verdict acquitting Woods without leaving their seats, lhat -was thirty-five years ago. Siiice that time Mr. Woods has grown to be an old man. He has always borne a good character, and is a quiet and peaceable citizen. He says he has only been in Winchester twice since the affair occurred; then he did not tarry very long, as the people were still disposed to make it hot for him. Tbe Liberty of Judaism. Hebrew Leader (New York), December 20th: "borne of our secular cotemoorarics. in calling attention to the fact that tbe Jews now enjoy religious freedom in nearly all countries of the world, wonder what the Jew will do with it. That is a question easily an swered. The Jew will enjoy it in tho land in which the Almighty baa cast his lot, and be content with it, and he will go on teaching its blessings to others, as he has been doing for these many centuries. He has no revolu tion to effect not even in Falestine. He aims to create no new kingdom, to overthrow no old monarchy. He is content with the cit izen-hip, the home, the land, the duty which the Lord his God has given him. In America he is a law-abiding citizen, who loves this land and its institutions, and hopes that it will be the home of bis children, to the latest generation. He would not exchange it for any other land of earth, for this is home, and here he enjoys, in its fullest sense, the liberty wuicn tne law of revelation taught his forefathers in the days of Mo6es, freedom of the individual conscience, and responsibility to tjou aione. inis is true liberty the lib- erty or juaaism. ine Express says (in a kindly spirit, and in an article which does great credit to its Ainly liberality) that it is important to know how the unrestricted lib erty the Jews now enjoy will affect the f uture of religion generally. We answer, unhesi tatingly, that it cannot but be for the welfare of all concerned. If people outside of the Israelites would read our sacred books care fully, and study our religion in the same manner, they would learn much to their ad vantage, not merely in regard to morals, but in regard to civil liberty and civi ization And this, we believe, will bo one of the bee results ot the unrestricted liberty of opinion and action which is now being accorded to the Jews in all countries which lay any claims to civilization, tc is a consummation most devoutly to be desired, and some day the world will acknowledge the debt it has so long owed to Judaism, in the example, set ior so many centuries, ot patient endurance under persecution, and of always standing up for civil and religious freedom and hu man progress."

I ou are bound, by every sacred tie and every no ble aspiration, to follow m their footsteps The issue is now put plainly before you. On the one side you are invited to join tne ranks ot the constitutional agitators, the divided home-rulers, Parneli, O'C. Power & Co., and their new transatlantic allies, who, by th;s invitation, declare that they have abandoned all hope of recovering the freedom of our country by the only means through which it has ever been achieved by any enslaved ca tion. namely, a resort to arms when such a course might be adopted with effect. On the other hand, you are requested by the true nationalists of Ireland to be prepared to a sert your principles and rights, whenever the opportunity snau arrive, uy tne same weap ons and by the same means wnicli your English enemies used when they deprived you of yonr national independence. Many inducements have been held out to you cur ing recent years to depart from the paths of duty, and lend your aid to the schemes of false-hearted demagogues.

It made its last appear ance under the specious name of home rule, and pretended to represent the patriotic as pirations of the people of Ireland. But the so-called national demand, made from the home-rule platform, took a strange and ua natural shape, viz., a closer connection with England and a surrender of tha right of Ire land to separation; lhi3 delusion, however, could not last, and it is now almost entirely dispelled.

"They are always grazing, paying not tue least heed to the hour. When not actually eating they generally give utterance to a pe culiar cry. Strong men often jump out cf bed at midnight in the coldest weather when hearing that cry." "What meaning is attached to this cry?" "Men of deepest thought have agreed that it signifies to wake up the neighborhood and have some fun." " "Of what benefit to mankind is a dcmet-li-cated baby?"
