There is much effervesc ing in the Republican pot. This party has lilted high its banner, and is strutting about in mighty pomposity. If Tictories can be won by inBOlence, rant and bluster, the Re publicans have already achieved a marvelous triumph. Often the more worthless the busi ness, tbe louder the brass bands in th streets, and tbe gasconade of the Republicans is no evidence of strength. Criminals often claim immunity from punishment on account of the respectability of their kin, and tbe Re publicans of Shelby county .seem to think they gained strength -and respectability be cause Democrats joined them in extending the hospitality of tbe city to Grant, a man whose nomination for a third term many ol these Republicans oppose, and against whom every Democrat in Sbelby county will vote in November should he be, as he no doubt will be, the nominee of tbe Chicago convection. While the Republicans are fuming, vapor ing and swaggering, the Nationals are talking valiantly as to what they intend to do. This little squad is small in number, but it knows how to keep up a tremendous racket. The Republican party never per mits an opportunity to pass without offering a wilful, deliberate and premeditated insult to the Nationals, and the Nationals propose to resent and to avenge this insult by adopt ing' a policy which will result in the triumph of the party that a'anders, insults and persecutes them. While the Repub licans are kicking the Nationals around the county, using their faces as a spittoon, and the Nationals are caucusing and fixing up things to suit themselves, the Democratic party is silent; but, like Pat'a owl, it keeps up an "awful thinking." It may at present be as still as the breeze, but before tbe clcs of tbe two canvasses of this summer and fall it will manifest itself in all the terror of the storm. It has been said by an eminent poet that PiMlnns are likened best to floods and storms, Tbe shallow murmur, while tbe deep are dumb. The Democratic party of Shelby county is not a party of arrant, truckling cowards to be awed into silence by Republican bravado, or led by a lew impatient office-seeking Nationals. In a few weeks the Democracy of Shelby will hold a county convention ior the purpose of selecting delegates to the State convention. This county convention 'will select a new Democratic executive com mittee. In view of the many grave responsi bilities devolving upon this committee, it should be composed of wise and discreet men Democrats who care more for the prin ciples of the party than the selfish schemes of barteting and trading office-seekers. Tbe Nationals and the Democratic party are nearly together on principle. They are united in demanding reform and retrench ment in the administration of the govern ment, home rule and the elimination from politics all those sectional hatreds so injuri ous to the peace ahd prosperity ot the coun try, and without which the Republican party would cease to exist. The idea that the Na tional part; ol Sbelby county, which has an ephemeral and sporadic existence, should nominate a ticket for the great Democratic purly, which has an organization in ever; county in this broad Union, is only equaled by the impudence ot the juror who com plained of the obstinacy of the eleven men who wculd not agree with him. The Nationals and the Democrats of Shelby ought to unite, and they can nnite if they will meet in a spirit of conciliation and con cession, and listen to the teachings of justice and common sense instead of the exactions of office-seekers. A majority of the people of Shelby county are essentially and unalterably opposed to tun Republican party. With unity of pu.ri.oie, harmony in tbe selection of can didates, equal and exact justice, the haughty crest of the defiant Radicals, who amuse themselves in all their public meetings by ridiculing and calumniating the National, can be lowtred and humiliated by a crushing defeat. But at present the opposition to the Republican party in Shelby county is torn by internal dissensions, rent by factious aspi rauls, otherwise possessing all the elements of success, will, unless such divisions and strites give place to peace, union and har mony, as certainly rush to its ova destruc tion as a gallant ship, rudderless and without pibt, will be at the mercy of the waves and ultimately dash upon the rocks. In the county elections for August next the Ar rKAL will counsel with the new Demo cratic executive committee-. But it might as well be understood now that the Nationals cannot dragoon the Democratic party into its support by defiant and premv ture action. The Democratic party is too old, has fought too many battles, and is too for midable in numbers to be made the tail to a political kite, a drum-mtgor to an organiifr tion which of itself is powerless for good The scarred veterans who have so long fought too battles of Democracy have long since learned that political defeat is not always the worst thing that can happen a political party. Temporary defeat will tend to ulti mate victory if the ends aimed at, and per severed in, be high and just. Whenever a party abandons its organization its destruc tion is inevitable. For eighteen years the Demooratio party has kept Radical fanaticism at bay. It has the power and the will to conquer the patty, which in this county, takes a malicious delight in traducing the Nationals, and in view of the victory which can be achieved in November, the Shel by county Democracy must maintain its organisation intact. It cannot in this contest become the tender to the National locomotive. If we cannot always secure victory, we can ba consoled by the reflection that we de served it. A month's canvass previous to the August election is long enough. 'We there fore advise the Nationals to go s'ow. There is no neces-ity for precipitating a canvass. Their normal position of the organization is in tbe Democratic party. It members are not cravens to lick the hand which smites them, and if they wish to defeat the Republicans, their calumniatois and vilifiers, they will, in stead of blindly rushing upon defeat, coun sel with the Democracy of Shelby, which will be just and generous. The victory which the Nationals achieved two years ago has been like the Dead Sea fruit, which turns to ashes on the lips. In that contest the Democratic party was defeated, but tbe com bination which triumphed has bursted into many fragments, as the frail, rotten and un s a wort by bark falls upon tbe rocks on which ti.e billows have tossed it; and the Nation als, triumphant then, are not so strong as the defeated Democracy now. The Democratic party is imperishable. It cannot die be cause its candidates are sometimes defeated. Tarty spoils have nothing to do with party principles. Demecratio prin ciples form the only policy upon which this country can bo made securely and per manently prosperous. It may occasionally be defeated, but it will recover lUelf and con tinue to be tbe sareat stay of the people and the country in the hour of need. The Ka publicans can 1 defeated in Shelby count; text August, bat to accomplish this then mast be a union of tbe Nationals and the Democrats, and this onion c&n be scared by a spirit of concession and conciliation. Myrok A. Eddt predicts as a result of the Chicago convention that Elihu B. Wash burne, of Illinois, will gather in the fruit while others shake the trees. Associated with him for the second place on the ticket will probably be either General Joseph R. Hawley, of Connecticut, or Stewart L. Wood ford, of New York. Mr. Eddy also predicts the nominations to be made by the Cincin nati convention. He says of "Judge Stephen J. Field, of California, that the first place will be accroded to him. Ex-Governor Joel Parker, of New Jersey, or Henry B. Payne, of Ohio, will probably diaw tbe second prize. These nominations will cement every faction of tbe Democracy into a band of brotherhood, and will attract the larger portion of the inde pendent vote. After an exciting campaign, by a small majority, the Cincinnati ticket will win, and its candidates be inaugurated at the White House on the fourth day of March next, amid tbe loud hozanas of a free and happy people." On Sunday last. Rev. George Chainey, of Evansville, Indiana, solemnly '.renounced Christianity in presence of the congregation of his church, and declared that he would never preach again. He no longer believes in a personal God. He thinks that a degrada tion of the deity, and he believes that pray ing is a waste of precious time. The Evans ville Journal, in its report of the renuncia tion, states that "the conservative element of the church have mentally, if not actually, bidden him farewell. But there is a strong radical element in and out of the church which is expected to support him in his radi calism, even though it does take him out of Christianity. Mr. Chainey's plans for the future are not well defined. He has received no offer to go elsewhere; his action is purely an independent one, and from the force of his convictions." General Steedman, the "U!d Chicka mauga" of the Federal army, a staunch, true and tried Democrat, who keeps up with the times and is well informed as to the move ments of both parties, gives it as his opinion that Grant will be the next Republican nom inee; that Blaine will not accept the second place on tbe ticket with him; that Tilden has no chance of receiving the Democratic nomi nation, because he cannot unite the factions in New York; that Thnrman will receive the support ot Ohio in the convention; that it would be injudicious to oppose Grant with Hancock, because if it were made a contest between military men, the people would fol low the leader with the greatest prestige; and that either Jewett or Field will be the nomi nee of the Cincinnati convention. What a rebuke to the bloody-shirt Radi cals who want to employ the army at the polls. General Grant, in the course of an informal talk to bis fiiends and neighbors of Centralia, Illinois, and in response to a feel ing welcome by Rev. Mr. Green, said: "We " have no standing army in this country, and " I am glad of it. I have had opportunity in " the last three years to see much of stand " ing armies, and I know what they are." One of the greatest living soldier?, unbos oming himself to his old comrades-in-arms, told them that he was more than ever con vinced of the danger and folly of maintain ing a professional soldiery; the experienced ex-President, recalling Louisiana, Florida and South Carolina, remarked to his old friends that he had seen enough of militaiy government. Walt Whitman, the poet philosopher, whose heart embraces all human conditions, and whose soul is elevated above passion or prejudice, in a recent talk about Abraham Lincoln, whose name he venerates, said: "He belongs to these States in their entirety not the north only.but tho south perhaps he be longs most tenderly and devoutly to the south of all; for there, really, is this man's birth stock. There and thence his antecedents stamp. Why should I not say that thence his manifest traits hisunivers ility his can ny, easy ways and words upon the surface his inflexible determination and courage at heart? Have you never realized it, my friends, that Lincoln, though grafted on the west, is essentially, in personnel and charac ter, a southern contribution ?" The London Saturday Review takes a practical, common-sense view of the Monroe doctrine and its recent reaffirmation by our government. It says: "It would cult to protect a Panama canal American troops and ships. The be difli against Federal government might find a shadow of precedent tor its claims in the more modest pretensions of Great Britain to the free use of the Sues cinal. It cannot be denied that if M. de Lsieps's scheme were accomplished, it would b largely used for the coasting trade be tween the Atlantic and Pacific shores of the United States. Tho communication would be at least as indispensable to the American Union as the free use of the Suez canal to the power which possesses India." A correspondent of the Richmond Com- monwealth, who ardently espouses the candi d icy of Mr. Justice Field, insists that if the Tow York Democracy is to be harmonised, it can be best done by taking up an outside man. In addition to this, there is no reason why New York should always have tbe can didate. In 1864 there was a New York can didate. He was beaten. In 1868 there was another Governor Seymour. He, toi, was defeated. la 1S72 Horace Greeley was nom inated, and again defeat followed. In 1876 there was another New Yorker Mr. Tilden. He was elected, as we all believe, but again the ill-luck of a New York candidate prevail' ed, and now some people want to try New York candidates till tbe cr ick of doom. The Chicago Tribune, rabidly radical. maliciously hating the soutb, feared that the tour that Grant recently made in this section would have the effect of opening the eyes of the ex-President to the fact that there is no patrext to justify Republican malevolence and bitterness toward us, it therefore wailed a wail to the effect that " General Grant's best and truest friends those who believe in him and love him for bis own sake.not because they hope to get ofb.ee under bim disapproves wholly of ths southern tour in which he is now en gaged." The Tribune need not be afraid. Grant's prejudices may have been dissipated by his visit to the soutb, otherwise he is in tact. He is Republican, and we remain in iexibly Democratic. Ths anti-third-term committee at St. Louis claims to have assurances from over twenty States of large and respectable delegations. Tbe German Republicans are almost solid in opposition to a third term, and in case of Grant's nomination the defection of German strength alone in Ohio, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan and Indiana will certainly defeat mm in each of those btatos. The same is true of New York, and probably of Pennsyl vania, it tbey are carried by Grant it will ba by a small majority. Not alone do the Germans oppose his election, but they will be reinforced by a larger body ef native Re publicans who believe a third term would either result in a life tenure or the absolute overthrow of the Republican party for all time to come. London Truth: "When a girl has received the best education which schools can afford; when she has learned to sing, dance, em broider, knit; when she has a pretty face, a taste for finery, and a desire to have a house of her own, she soon turns restless on finding that no eligible proposals are forthcoming for her hand. In the nature of things, it must needs be that the majority of girls in the middle class are condemned to remain single in their prime. Men cannot marry until their prospects are well assured, ao.l this happens to most men only when tbey r:s -bcrdariBg oa thirty." THE 11031 K Ot AMERICA. Let All who would Lead a Holy Life Leave Washington Everything is Permitted there Except to be an Honest Man" How a Young Tennessee Greenhorn Views Ken, Women and Things A Saintly and Temperance Loving Administration Key the Sight Bower or the Presidential Fraud Trom an Appeal Correspondent. Washington, April 19. At last I have reached tbe capital of my country. I hope the northern people will givo m, a southern born boy, credit tor calling the United States my country. I came here as the youthful monk, Martin Luther, went (to Rome in tbe early part of the sixteenth century, with great expectations. When be entered Rome, he exclaimed: "Blessed Rome, sanctified by tbe blood of martyrs!" After being hre a short time, I exclaimed: - "Beautiful Washington, damned by ths fascinations of harlots and intrigues or politicians, in fested with boardinghouses, and marie lively with'congressional scandal. Luther fled from Rome at the earliest poi-sibla moment, ex claiming: "Adieu, Rom; let all wao would lead a holy life depart from Rome. Every thing is permitted at Rome, except to be an honest man." I have ttlt that way about Washington, but I think I will stay a while, fight its abominations and blandishments, and with patience seek for its brighter and better side. I intend to test tbe question whether it is possible for an honest and vir tuous youth to live in Washington. As an evidence that my intentions are good I have refrained from presenting the letters of inti eduction to the senators and members of congress with wbich I was fur nished before leaving home. 1 am religious ly determined not to have anything to do with doubtful characters while in the city. Thus far I have tot visited any of tbe de partments or bureaus where females are em ployed, for tbe reason that I am too young to marry and I don't expect to reach the age of Ex-Senator Chrintiancy. I have not occupied a seat in tbe ladies' gallery of the senate or house of representatives because I did not want to become the rival of licentious sena tors. The beauty of Washington has been so often written and spoken ot tbat it has be come stereotyped in the minds of all reading people, therefore I need not give my impres sion ot it at any great length. The city of Washington of to-day is more beautiful than I had imagined from any description I had ever read. Spring has draped its parks, avenues and streets in its gayest robes nowers and p;rtumea on every hand tue costliest equipages whirling along its unrivaled loadways and its side walks filled with cultured, happy and joyous people. Citizens ef the United States cannot fail to have a pride in its caDital They Bhould make it a paint to visit here; the presence ot well-meaning constituents would have a wholesome influence over the nation's law-makers. Firmlv adhenncr to my determination not to associate with any aouotiui people, leaned on President tUyts shortly after my arrival. I bad heard of his good qualities, integrity, morality, meth odism, tamperanco and love for agriculture fairs nothing bad in these things. Wbv should I not pay my respe.ts to so much goodness compressed into one mortal frame, with title ot excellency annexed? Do you know how tckhsh a country boy feels when be approaches city greatness? Then you know how I felt wheu I went to the White House. I had read two or more lives of the President and studied the southern fiiipstinn. I had intended to present myself as one who baa reaa ot great men, and wbo knew inti mately tbe political sentiments of the com munity in which I lived. I bad been told that he liked to talk of himeelf and the friends of bis visitors. J was promptly accorded interview. Can yon imagine how was nustratea on entering tbe room ot the President of the United States and the childlike and bland greeting the Ptesident gave me? My dear sir, if all Tennessee could have witnessed that greeting the electoral vote of that State in the future would not be in doubt. Now, mind you, be didn't know I was trom Tennessee at the start; I didn't mention that oa my card, and ne was lea to Deueve trom tbe similarity ot my name with somebody else named that I was trom Louisiana. After seeing me com fortably seated he commenced talking about returning boards, and suggested tbat they were good things to turn the tide of elections in troublous tinus. .. Yea. said I, but don't you thing tbeir lrequent application would result in the withdrawal of the ballot in our country. He answered, that " possibly that might be true in the contingency of the board deciding in favor of a bad man, but you will remember, my young friend, tbat in tne only caBe where the action of a returmns-bonrd has attracted the attention of the whole coun try they decided in favor of a good man one opposed to politicians and in favor ot civil service reform." It was e'ear to my mind tbat the President had given the subject ot return ing-boards, politicians and civil-service reform more attention than I had. I was not desirous to continue tbe conversation on tbat line, and made a merit of changing the subject by saying "that the people of tnu State felt that the returning-board of 1876 bad covered themselves with an effulgence of political glory." I thought I saw a light shadow ot modesty pass over bis countenance as I timidly uttered the words. I may have been mistaken as to the modesty, and yet I cannot tains: be suspected me ot poking luo. However, the Bbadow passed quickly away, and be asked me what was my btate. I an swered Tennessee. At the mention of that name he arose and grasped my hand. Then 1 realized that there was something in a habi tatinn and poetry in the name of my faabita tion; then it was tbat I wanted all Tennessee to see the benignity of bis countenance. He said: "Xoung man, 1 look on jou with favor, and you may nope tor future reward. Ten nesBee is now nud ever has been the home ot great men. You are too youug to remember Jackson, David Crockett. Felix Grundv. Pjlk. Jjhn Bell, James C. Jones, and many others oi ineir day. mere is one ot the present day whose name has become identified with great ness and statesmanship, and one in whom you. as a Tennessean. must feel vre-.it rnd " Tbe surpassing mystery of that statement caused me to ask witb much earnestness: "Pray, sir, who is it of whom you speak?" Knowing the surprise be had in store tor me, be looked exultant, hesitated j jst enough to make me nervous for the at swer, when he spoae out: "ney David M. b.ey, tne soldier, scholar, senator and t t master general. That man," said he. "has done more to aid Republicanism ano sustain my ad ministration than any man in my cabinet. His enlarged views in tbe administration of the delicate duties ot his department command the re fcpect of congress in a manner such as none ot bis predecessors ever ecjoyed. I knew his sterling worth when I invited him to a place in my cabinet. I knew that the late lamented senator Morton strongly desired the patron age of the postoffioe department. The man he urged for the place, I was assured, was a man of very small caliber, and would be entirely satisfied with a subordinate place, even to a clerkthiD. bis sole ambition being to get his name in a newspaper as a tail to the kite of some one who gloried in giving a free lunch or an in discriminate reception. I bad to oblige Morton by giving bis name considerable space, but 1 knew Key would bold a tight rein." I ventured to suggest tbat there had been a little scandal about the administration of the postoffice department recently. "Yes, said the President, "tbat was a little of the strategy of JLey to demonstrate the confi dence congress had in his executive ability, and I think he did well. It has had tho ten dency to bring his name prominently forward as a candidate for the Yice-Presidency, and tbat, too, on the ticket witb the great world renowned hero." So faying, he picked up a newspaper lying on tbe table and pointed me to tbe following parnprapa: Tbe movement to bare P atmater-aeneral Key go on lbs ticket ior Vice-President mm t.neial terant is said to be tbe result ot a desire expressed lr tbe latter to have a soutbern man on the ticket Tbe inimater general says be is entirely Ignorant ot tbe movement, but ls not jnt lndictUHi mat be viouia aeciine to accept me cauuiUiicj u onered him. I asked the President why General Grant did not invite Don Carlos Bueli, who lives in Kentucky, therefra a southern man, to take tbe second place on tbe ticket. JJuell, 1 said, stood pretty close up ' to the fortunes of Grant at Shiloh on tbe sevecth of April, 1S62. and saved the military adminis- tra'ionot Grant on tbat field from utter dis comfiture, it Dot annihilation, while General David M. Key was with signal, if not suc cessful, ability helping in the discomfiting and annihilating business." Toe President lowered his voice, and said to me rather con fidentially that "tbe great danger was tbat the ODDosition mieht place Conkhng at the head of tbeir ticket and thereby rout Grant, Blaine, Sherman, and all other Republican candidates. Grant's selection of key is to head off just such an impending calamity. I could not conceal my surprise at such a suggestion from so astute an observer of po litical events as the President. He noticed it, and continued by saying: ''You must not be surprised at anything connected with a Presi dential election io the United States. This is a period ot surprises. Ail candidates for the office are surprised tbat t: ey are r garded as candidates; tbe nominees are morn than suptissd. The elected man is an lta, rove mest oa a surprise, ncd tbe Bate!; icaagu rated man laughs at the tomfoolery of fell the i surprises. I kL0 how it is myself. I have gone through with a'l tbe surprises; yea, I am a surprising man." At this point we were interrupted in our truly social chat by the ushering In of the oiheers of a temperance society. 1 withdrew not, however, until the President gave me a card ot introduction to the secretary of state, Mr. Evarts. Tbe President exacted a prom ise from me that I would certainly eall on Evarts, and extended to me a further invita tion to call and see him again. In withdraw ing I could not but feel that I had been in the presence and conversed with a good man. I will avail myself of an early opportunity to call on him again. He knows that I do not want office or preferment at bis bands. I have no recommendations to make. I only want words of wisdom. He knows that he is full of them, and to a good listener he deals them out with a liberal hand. I have met our congressman on the streets several times. I used to know bim and I thought he knew me, but then I was ap proaching my majority and votes were needed in tbe district. A voter in a con gressional district and a visitor to the capital of the United States is not one and the same thing quite the reverse, as one finds when he enters the city of Wash ington during the sessions of congress. Why is it that some members of congress cannot act toward their constituents as if they, at least, thought there was some higher aim in lite than that of hunting small offices? As for myself, I want to say at this point tbat I havo visited Washington City to learn some thing of the manner in which the interests of tbe people are looked after, to know some thing by observation of the personnel of the servants ot tne people. My motives are good, and such researches as I am enabled to make shall be in the interest of the nation, regard less of creed, party or section. I surely will not become a bore for office. Every day since I came I am the more satisfied that government office, as now obtained and held, is a sacrifice of independent manhood. I shall, however, be grateful to all for the courtesies that rule among gentlemen and such information as might be given to a stranger in a strange place. I want to have a talk with the members of the cabinet. I will see Evarts, inasmuch as the President has specially commended me to him. I will give you my views of what I see and hear here in my crude and homely way. I will attend the sit tin ;s of congress occasionally, and may have something to say of greatness as seen from the galleries. You may be prepared to bear tbat there are very few senators or rep resentatives wbo fill a very large place in the public estimation here. They are said to be quite common fellows by the good men with whom I have had the great pleasure of asso ciating since my arrival. Whatever I may s-iy will be the truth of the matter as near as it can be aimed at. cakdinai.- Pucfc . IMPROBABILITIES. When Chllds, A.

Jolly Coo fensen to bio Crime He Uoea With the omeero mud Points Oat the Karial Place ar Bis Mardered Victim. Atlanta, April 21. A few days since we mentioned the fact of the arrival in this city from Mississippi of J. T. Willingham, of Stone mountain, having in custody James Jolly, the white man who i? charged with be ing the murderer ot Miss Norria. Since the arrival of Jolly he has been confined m the jail at Decatur. Yesterday, while in jail, we are informed Jolly admitted the murder, and drew a diagram showing where he had buried the remains. This diagram Willingham made use of, going to tbe spot where Jolly had stated tbe body was to be found. After a diligent search bad been made with no success, Willingham again had an interview with Jelly, and at tbe suggestion of the mur derer, took bim out tor the purpose of mak ing further search for the bones of the dead Miss Norris. Jolly at once acted as guide and carried Willingham to a shallow ravine, a short distance away from the house in which Jolly lived while he was a resident of this State and before he took his departure for Mississippi. Pointing to a spot in tbe ravine. Jolly said, "the body is there." The second spade full of dirt that was turned np brcnbtwi h it a portion of the head of a hurnaa being and a number of teeth. This much was sufficient to convince those who were present that the body was there also. The dirt was replaced and Jolly carried back to jail, where he will remain until tbe case is disposed of by the coutt. To-day we learn an inquest will be held and all the leading facts in the horrible murder lifted to the sur face. As yet Jolly has given no reason or excuse for having committed the crime. The finding of the remains of Miss Norris has created considerable excitement in the neigh borhood. Oiher developments will be looked forwith interest. HB POINTS OCT THE GRAVE. Atlanta, Ga., April 21. James Jolly, who was brought back from Mississippi on the charge of murdering Miss Norris, in De Kalb county three years ago, took the officers to the spot where she was buried. The body was found near the surface. Jolly said his brother-in-law. Weaver, attempted a rape on M 6) Norris, and, in the attempt, killed her and threatened his life if he did not help him bury her. He now says Weaver did not do it. Jolly is in j nl and clcsely guarded. CJOLD IN GEUKG1A. The Fladlnsc of N assets mill Contlaaea Tbe Lareest One Yet Void br tbe Fouad twreat Kortnaes to Come. Atlanta Constitution: "Advices by tele graph and ua.til received from tbe gold mine in White county, ot wbich a description was given yesterday, show that the yield grows ricber and richer, and there is, of course, an increase in the excitement. Colonel J. H. Nicbolis, who had started borne, telegraphs us from Mount Airy tbat the Messrs Lums den found on Tuts iay a nugget that weighed four hundred and forty pennyweights. This is about one-third larger than the nugget that was shown in Atlanta on Tuesday, and is almost equal to toe nugget of five hundred inJ twenty pennyweights, which was the Urgest. ever found in Georgia. A card frcm Mr. E. J. Storr, a reliable gentleman, who is on the ground, says tbat the boys have begun to count their day's work by tbe pound, and that on Monday, only two bands being at work, they took out twenty- four pounds of g Id, or, to be exact, nine hundred and forty-two pennyweights. All of this was found in nuggets. One nugget weighed three hundred and thirty penny weights, anothPrseveBty-three pennyweights, and another fifty-two pennyweights. The others were smaller piecs, ranging from five to forty pennyweights. Ibe day s work cn Monday ot tbe two hands amounted to over nine hundred dollar?, as the bullion is worth about ninety six cents to the pennyweight. We await with cariosity further news from this rich mine. We have little doubt that the Lumsdens will net a huge fortune out of tbe old vegetable garden hat has for fifty years been given to the cultivation ot turnips and potatoes.

The examina tion of the cadets in reply to the formula of questions adopted by the court was continued this morning. B. C. Welsh, a suBDended cadet, testified that a student named Palmer, who was a candidate for West Point, told him on the second day before the Highland Falls article appeared in th9 New York Times, that hi (Palmer) had heard from some one in ths village that some cadets were at the falls an! had said that Whittaker would be "fixed. ' Palmer said he heard so from a milkman. Witness understood, from what Palmer hid said, that the cadets were at Ryan's place; did not know the milkman; Palmer referred to Cadet John B. M'Donald, who was sus pended in 1878 tor striking Whittaker. He answered every question in the formula in the negative properly. Cadet Frank B. Andrus, who had trouble with Whittaker, in reply to a question by Mr. Townsend, said that Whittaker had beer "falling in" with him for six or eight weeks, and he got tired of it, for two or three rea sons. He spoke to Whiitaker about it. anc told him he wished he weuld stop it. Fori two or three times Whittaker did stop it, baft afterward commenced again tailing in alongside him. He spoke to him again, and told him he would see that it was stopped. But it did no good. The witness said he was at the end of the official line. Mr. Townsend Was there any place fcr the poor toy to "fall in?" Witness No, sir. Mr. Townsend What do yon think ths boy was going to do; he had to fall in some where, didn't he? Witness Ye, sir. The Court Where were you born? Witness In Michigan. Tbe Court What State did you come here from? Witness Indiana. Tue Court Did you change your place bv "falling in" on the left, instead of the right? Witness I told the captain that I would like to "fall in" there; I said to another cor poral I did not want to leave him and go to another place in line and leave Whittaker to close upon him, as it would be as unpleasant to him as to me; I asked the captain to let ns both "fall in" at another place in liie, saying if I could not do so I would make ap plication to be reduced to the ranks. Mr. Townsend Who was the member of congress trom your district? Witness John H. Baker. Another expert in handwriting has been given the papers examined by Superintendent Gavlor, ot the JNew lork postomce. It is said that the writing of "No. 8" at traded the attention of Superintendent Gay' lor when he was given specimens at first of twenty-bve cadets, lhe writing of Whitta ker and Simpson was in the batch. General Schofield has issued the following general order: The major-general commanding desires to assun tbe corps ot cadets ot bis unshaken laltb In tber honor and lntegrl.T, and or bis appreciation ot the manly bearing under tbe grievous wrong and Injus tice wbich tbey have recently suffered. The outrags committed on the sixth ot April, even If committal by some of their number, was Justly felt as no less an outrage upon tbe corps; jet this has been fol lowed by even greater ln'ults and Indignities heapei upon ail tbe cadets Indiscriminately, and througl them upon as many respectable families and com munities in all parts of tbe country.

The testimony of the different cadets through the day revealed the tact that sever al cadets were absent trom their rooms be tween ten and eleven on the night of the out rage. One was absent after eleven a short time and another between five and six in the morning, but tbe cause of absence was gen erally given. BEAUTIFUL, riUTUKES By a mother aad, Dasgater Art Par. tied For Fleaoare Keaalts la Profit ana Came A Noble Example. A New York young lady, according to a correspondent, from whose life all hopes ot the pleasures of youth was shut oat by the perpetual torments ot a curved spine, betook herself to painting birds and blossoms, but terflies and bits of sky earth that could be seen frooi her city window. Her mother, who is as sympathetic as Bhe was intellectual, was almost withdrawn from a social circle which she long adorned and illuminated, to brighten the sedentary life of her daughter. To make companion ship complete and to establish a comraderie of thought and pursuit, the mother took up the brush and palette, and discovered that her latent talent for really high art was quite willing to be developed. And so they paint ed pictures together, these two sweet sad women, and they presented them to their friends, and it was through these beautiful gifts that an appreciative world found them out and brought the fruits of their artistic bands into public litfht. By-and-by Tiffany sent an ambassador to beg a favor of them. They were implored to paint a screen for him, just as a favor, and with the courtesy of gen tlewomen they complied with his wish. Af terward something else was craved, and now Tiffany wants everything that they can furnish him, Their circumstances in life do not make generous compensation for their pictures as welcome to them as they would be if hunger stood waitieg outside their handsome doors; but tbey remember Angelica Kauffman and Rosa Bonheur, and a'cupt tbe good their pictures bring, both in pleasure and in fortune. Tbese two women are mentioned because the sorrow and sweet ness of their lives have not only been made tolerable to themselves, but even beautiful, by their tender devotion to genuine art, and to teach each otter at the same time. Tbey produce pictures in that sick chamber the like of which are painted nowhere in New York. BEAUTIES OF POLTG4IIY. . Htrlklas Illaatratlon of the Celestial Order of marriage As Almost la credible ttory of Hamaa Degradation. Salt Lake A nti-Polygamy Standard: The following was related by the wife of a noted United States explorer to a Gentile lady of this city, who will vouch for its genuineness': "While traveling in southern Utah we came to a small settlement, where we were de tained for a day or two by inclement weather. We found shelter in the humble but neat and hospitable home ot a monogamiBt saint, whose family hated polygamy, and through whose influence we were permitted a glance at some of the beastliness that characterizes the peculiar institution. Only a short dis tance from the dwelling of my friendly en tertainers there stood a miserable adobe hut (I could not conscientiously call it a house), where lived a saint with three wives, all of whom bad families. My hostess made some neighborly er rand an excuse for paying them a visit, and permitted me to accompany her; but before going she made me acquainted with the rela tionship existing between the three women, wbo were living with and had borne children to the same man. Tbe first and second wo men were sisters. The latter bad been a widow with one child when she married bcr sister's husband. Wben this child had grown to be sixteen years old her stepfather bad also married her, but after a few months she left and was sealed to another man as plural wife, by whom she had two children. Then he died and she returned to her first husband, bringing her children with her, tbe eldest of whom at the time I am speak ing of was a girl about titteen years old, and my in'oimaot stated for a fact that the eld wretch had thoughts of marrying her too. When we entered the hut the scene that met my eyes totally beggars description. Im agine one low, smoky, filthy roDm serving as living-room and sleeping apartment tor three women and their offspring; lima of the latter almcs1. grown up, the irj:rity, however, almost being little children. 1 could never have dreamed ct such dirt, rags and rqualor existing in a christian country. I bad seen nothing equal to it even among the Digger Indians; in fact, the latter were quite civiisted in comparison. But the worst of my story is yet to come. The girl of whom my hostess had spoken as a probable bride of her grandfather was sitting in a corner sob bing and crying, Upon inquiring the cause of her distress we were told quite frankly that her grandfather had given her a severe cas tigation for speaking disrespectfully about polygamy and declaring that she would never becuii- the wife ol her mothers 'a and grandmother's husband. When we left I could cct restrain 107 indignitiOD, :d I raid 1 'What s lorely relifc-iea tiui a to &ak such beasts out -f human creatures!' 'It is not religion, but tbe lack of it tbat makes there beasts,' quietly nj i lined my hostess, an you will find many cases as bad as this one if you travel far in Utah.' Bat the sequel 19 still more horrible. About a jear atterward we had occasion to pasi again ttrougb that particular settlement, and for a dry were the guests of our former hostesss. See told me that the young girl was really valed so her grandfather, being literally forced :ntoit by her own mother and grand mother under circumstances so revolting that delic&sy forbids me from repeating them even to one of my own sex. Even in that' polyga mic community tbe excitement was so great that talk was bad of lynching the degraded trio the man and the two elder women but the Ireling soon passed over, and was eventually forgotten or only remembered as an epiBoie of this peculiar religion."

Tne Dancer of the Trapeae A Band some If odds lrl rails Twenty Feet in tne Presence ef Her Pather and Ilotaer. Philadelphia Times, 16th: "At the after noon performance of the circus yesterday, while the audience were breathlessly watch ing the feats ot the wonderful Davene family. consisting of one man and three women, who were going t a rough the r dsr.nz trapeze acts above the London ring. Miss Lacy Davene, who had just launched herself trom a pedes tal nearly twenty feet high to make a swing ing leap and be caught in the arms of hrr father, wbo bung head downward htty leet away, was seen to quit her hold on the bar of the flying trapeze and fall with a sicken ening thud to the ground below. Men groaned ard women shrieked aud hid their faces. For an instant the poor girl lay stretched out upon the ground like one dead, Bava for a slight tremor of her limbs. It was only for an instant, and then a stalwart athlete gathered her in his arms as be might a baby and ran with her all limp and senseless into the adjoining tent from wh-.ch the performers enter the ring. ' My God, my child, my child! Let me down,' came a cry from the lips ot a woman in flashy tights and blonde wig who hung from a high trapeze by her feet, and who in turn held by his feet Davene, who was to have caught the girl if the leap had been success fully performed. The woman forgot that she was 9 circus performer and that ten thousand eyes were upon ber, and only remembered taat ehe was a mother. Davene dropped to the ground and his wife freed herself in an incredibly short time and followed him, and both almost flew after the swift gymnast who carried tbe bleeding girl nut of tbe sight of the horrihed audience, ibree physicians lelt tbeir places in the audience and disappeared behind tbe curtain which bung in tbe passage way through which poor Lucy Davene had been carried. All this occupied but a few seconds, and the audience had scarcely time to comprehend what had occurred before word came ont 'she. is all right,' and in a minute more Fish and Melville were whirling around the rings in their lightning bareback acts, in friendly rivalry, and the performance went on as though nothing had occurred, so far as the audience couid see. 1 be doctors said that her skull wa not fractured, but tbat it was imnoisible to tell what internal or spinal injuries she mieht have sustained. At one time she Bhowed some symptoms of concus sion of the spine. They said last night that they believed she would recover and without sustaining any permanent injuries, but Dr. Muhlenberg said that spinal iciuries eften did not develop themselves until sometime after they occurred. SIXGUJLAJU EXPERIMENT. Dnnstmaler Tests the Aeearaey of Ja- tser's Theory that the foal of Hen and Animals Is to be SJonaht In the Odor they Ex bale. London Sfedical Eecord: "The Berlin Gegemcart, of November 15, 1879, contains a report ot some experiments made by Dunst maier to test the accuracy of Jager's theory tbat the eoul of every man and animal is to be sought tor in tbe characteristic odor exhaled in each case. Duustmaier, who unites in his own person the physiologist and metaphysi cian, was, nntil these experiments convinced him of his error, an outspoken opponent of Jager's views. He is now, however, an en thusiastic convert. Danstmaier's method was no doubt suggested to him by his famil iarity with experimental science. He con sidered that light and the soul if the soul is the odor and both radiated, and that light can be, as it were, collected and fixed by a photographic plate coated with iodide of sil ver. What body, now, is as sensible to odors as iodide of silver is to light? In the center of the laboratory a cage containing twenty bares was placed, and a dog wai admitted to the room. He at once made violent efi'jrts to get at the hares, wbich, of course, in their terror, rushed to and fro in the cae. After two hours of this torture the dog was killed, the nerves of smell and the mucous mem brane of the nose removed and rubbed no in a . mortar with glycerine and water. The twenty hares had been exhaling their souls for two hours, and the dog, during all his panting and sniffing, inhaling them for the same length of time. The glycerine might be expected, then, to contain a cer tain quantity ot the soul of tbe hare, the fmain characteristic of which is of course timidity. That this was the fact the following experiments seemed to prove: A few drops ot the extract were administered to a cat; Bhe ran away from some mice instead of pouncing upon them. By the subcutaneous injection of only two cubic centimetres a large mastiff was rendered so cowardly that be slunk away trom tbe cat. By a similar experiment, in which, however, a young lion in a menagerie played the part ot the hare, Duustmaier succeeded in isolating the soul substance of courage and in transmitting it to other animals. Still more interesting ex periments showed clearly that tbese 'psy chotypic' glycerine extracts had a decided effect on the human species. Thus, after swallowing a email dose of psychotypic timidity, DunBtmaier had not the courage to believe in his own great discovery. This ef fect soon passed off, however." Jndglnc a Meaator by UlsIooko. Washington letter to the Richmond (Va.) Dispatch: (Judge Mackey (Republican) trom Soutn Carolina, was sitting m the gallery of the senate when a sharp-faced, razor strap looking fellow said to bim: "Mister, can yon point out to me that infernal. Hamburg mur derer, Butler, of Soutb Carolina." "Certain ly," said the polite judge; "and I will point out also other notables of the Benate. Don't you see that gentleman with the light, curly hair. Well, that is Conkling; and the gray headed, bright-looking man near him is Blaine; that large senator is Judge Divis, of Illinois; and over there is General John B. Gordon, talking to Lamar. Don't you see that bald-headed man?" pointing to Senator Edmunds, "well, that is Butler, of South Carolina." The eyes of cur Yankee friend wes lighted np with indignation as he re plied: "Yes, 1 could have picked him out of a thousand" adding a good deal that was not complimentary to the distinguished Ver monter. The other day Sonator Edmunds camejon tbe Democratic side, when Mr. Vest said: "Edmunds, Hampton has a good joke on you," and the gallant Carolinian was forced to tell the whole story. Senator Ed munds laughed heartily, and remarked that it was a compliment to be taken for so hand some a man as General Butler. The fact, however.is that Mr. Edmunds's face strongly indicates justice and wisdom, with no trace of mercy in it, unless wben he is talking to Mr. Thurman or some personal favorite, and then it is as genial and pleasant as possible.

The Times' dis patch from Marshfield says a number of the killed has been buried without identification, and as no record is kept it is impossible to obtain an accurate list of the dead. The citizens have organized into committees fur various purposes, witb E. M. Barnes as treas urer. A relief committee, with J.W.Thomp son as superintendent and J. R. Hudnal cor responding secretary, has also been formed. Telegrams offering assistance have been re ceived from Chicago, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Oswego and Columbus, Kansas. One hun dred and twelve residences were destroyed, besides numerous outbuildings. The loss on buildings is estimated at 300,000; on busi ness houses, (90,000, covered by fire policies amounting to $17,000 in the Springfield of Massachusetts, Lycoming of New York, Un derwriters and rtceaix ot Hartford. A report comes trom rant her valley, fifteen miles from Marshfield, ot seven persons killed by tbe storm. Numerous deaths are also reported from Green county and from Henderson. Latent advices from Texas coun ty, Missouri, say that the town of Licking was entirely destroyed, excepting three houses, by Sunday night's storm; three hun dred persons arc homeltes; one life was lost and seventeen persons wounded, five ot tbem seriously) the damage done was fully fitty thousand dollars. The tornado did immense injury to all kinds of property in the county. Dispatches just received say that the storm of Sunday was very severe in Morgan county, its track being strewn with demolished houses, barns and other farm property. The little town ot Barnettsvillo was torn nearly to pieces, and several persons killed and wounded. The names of the ki led have already been telegraphed. It is estimated that in Webster county, of which Marshfield is the county seat, fully one hundred people nave been killed and over two hundred wounded. Among the killed in the county are John Rose and daughter, Richard Hale, John Carsons, wife and two children, and three members ot the Scott family. The loss to property in the county is estimated at one million dollars. THE WOBST EVER KNOWN. The tornado of Sunday last seems to have extended over a much greater breadth of country and was more deadly and devasta ting in its effects than any storm that has occurred in the west for years. Reports show that it dealt death and destruction not only in half of Missouri, but raged with great fury through the northern half of Arkansas and a considerable part ot Kansas. At boawnee Mission, in the latter State, a number of per sons returning from a funeral, about three o'clock in the afternoon, were overtaken by the storm and took refuge in tbe shed ad joining the large brick store of Mr. Routts Shortly after the party had taken shelter a part of the store was blown down npon the shed, burying a dozen or more persons in the ruins and very seriously lEiuring u. U. Camp bell, Mrs. T. J. Wilson, Mcliie Brown and Lily strong, and more or leES injuring the re mainder of the party. IX HOBTBWENT ABKAN818. Little Rock, April 21. Advices from Fayetteville report that the storm ef Sunday night last was unprecedentedly severe. About nine o'clock, coming from the southwest, it struck and destroyed the residences of fur. Kilton, Dr. Paddock, Mrs. Crock and J. E. Yaughan, the Masonic hall and the Tremont bouse, a three story brick hotel, killing Airs, Glass, wife of the proprietor. The Democrat office is badly damaged. Dr. Boles's and Baum Bros, stores, the east end of tbe Moun tain home, Jennings's stable and Coffy's two- story brick are utter wrecks. .ight or ten frame dwellings east of town were lifted from tbeir foundations and torn to atoms. Many houses are unrooted. Quite a number of col ored people were wounded aud one child killed. All the horses in Jennings's stable were killed. The citizens turned out in tbe pelting storm to care for tbe wounded and protect property. The storm prevailed with startling severity as far south as Johnson county. A FRIUUTFDL F1KE Basins; la the Towa of Hall, Canada Engines Bent Pros Ottawa. Ottawa, April 21. A great fire is raging in Hull, opposite this city, and it is spreading with fearful rapidity. The whole rear of the town appears to be one mass of flames. Probably one hundred and fifty dwellings are destroyed. Danger is now apprehended from a slight sbitt ot the wind to the northward, which threatens to bring the fire down to ward the front of the town and the numer ous lumber piles along the river. The efforts to check tbe fire so far appear to have been quite ineffectual. The Bteamer Conquerer and a part of the fire brigade were sent over to assist tbe local fare companies. SECOND DISPATCH. Tbe fire in Hull has apparently burned itself out to a great extent, it is reported tbat three hundred houses bavo been con sumed, principally of wood and occupied by tbe poorer classes.

On Tuesday last the "Old Folks" held their monthly meeting, when their commit tee on subscriptions tor the benefit of Win chester cemetery reported having met with encouraging success in tbeir efforts to obtain funds for the lnclosura and care of it. An additional committee has been appointed to receive subscriptions, Messrs. S. H. Duns comb, S. H. Lamb and B. Richmond, on whom, we hope, our good citizens will call and subscribe liberally. Relatives of persons buried in the cemetery should promptly come forward and contribute to this greatly-desired object. There should be no further delay by any who feel the least interested in tha matter. The sooner the funds are raised, the sooner the work will be commenced and finished, as the "Old Folks" have taken hold of this important and commendable un dertaking with the determination of accom plishing it. They know no such word as fail. Tbe society has formally agreed to take charge of the cemetery, , receiving a deed from its present owners, at an early day, as soon as ail the arrangements can be made. At the meeting E. R. Belcher presented tbe society with four very aged and yellow-looking documents, to wbich are appended the names of four of our prominent State officials in tbeir own handwriting. One dated Au gust 21, 1S34. is signed by Wm. Carroll, as governor ot Tennessee; another dated April 28, 1S37, by Newton Cannon as governor; another July 31, 1841, by James K. Polk as governor; and the last September 22, 1343,by James C. Jones as governor. To tbe elderly citizens of Tennessee those memorable names excite feelings ot the warmest patriotism and State pride, tor wbat Tennessean, no matter what may be his present party affiliation, but cherishes the memory of these great and good men of the past. DESTRUCTIVE 1SAIN-STORH Walls aad Houses Undermined Brldces Washed Awiy-A Raft of Timber Iiaat Sorchweetera Watches Plooded. Natchez, Miss., April 13. The heavy and destructive rain which fell in this city on Thursday night last seems from all accounts to have been general throughout this and ad joining counties; and from tbe amount of damage done in this city by the rush of waters we may expect to hear of still greater losses in many portions ot tbe country. In this city the sewer wall was under mined, causing a cave of some fifteen or twenty feet; and so great was the current in that aqueduct that not a vestige of the bricks was to be found after the waters had subsided. The streets in many portions of the city were badly washed, and the cov ering to the sewer at the iutersection of Mad ison street and Cemetery road, was raised from its foundation and left in an unsafe con dition. The foundation of the new Tudoree building, on Franklin street.was undermined, causing the newly erected wall on the west side ot the building to fall, thereby entailing serious loss on the contractor engaged on tha work. The public cistern being dug on Jeffer son street, having an average depth of about twelve feet. was filled to the brim with water, and it is reported that several bridges in dif ferent parts of the county were badly dam aged, among wbich is tbe bridge over St. Catherine's creek, cn the L'berty road, one Cl tbe support si which is reported wbei away, b4 the entire eti'tiuure left M ft sbaky and dangerous condition. The cellar, or foundation, of tbe o'd Ba ker prjperty, adjoining the . jdatcnez cotton mills, was filled with water, which found its way from there to the engine-room of the mills, flooding it and causing a stop page ot these works. A large raft 01 cypress timber, moored at tbe mouth of Cole's creek, some twenty miles above the city, was broken loose by tbe force of the current in that stream and washed away, but ws are glad to state that tbe greater part ot it was saved at tbis point yesterday by the timely assistance of the steam-tug Joseph B. O'Brien. The entire northwestern part of the city is said to have been flooded to the depth of at least eighteen inches, tbe capacity of the sewer not being sufficieLt to carry off tbe immense quantity of water which fell, and it is to be hoped the importance of enlarging this aqueduct will be looked into by those in charge of the public welfare.
