Tlilcnl at the roatoOlea at Mem phis. Tna, aa Seetrad-Claaa MalW. SATURDAY i t APEIL 16, 1881 LIVERPOOL OTTOS MARKET-BIT. TER PklOaPECTS. We have received the excellent Liverpool Cotton Circular of Smith, Edward & Co, reviewing the cotton market there during the month of March. It states that the Manchester market, with apparent dullness, has had a fair amount of business, prevent ing any accumulation of stocks. Prices of yarns fell quite as much as cotton, cloth rather leas so. The enormous supplies sent to India cause fear of - an overweighted mar ket there, but there is so far no discourage ment felt. A long, cold winter and a back ward spring keeps the home market quiet. Eager attention is excited toward the ap proaching monetary conference, but the de sire seems to be to receive benefit from con cessions made by other nations, while the English should make none, Its suc cess, it was anticipated, will cause general prosperity; . its failure would be followed by serious consequences, as America would almost certainly cease to use silver, while France would seek to gain gold. Italy is striving to get $20,000,000 of gold with which to resume specie payments, and Austria and Russia will soon be wanting the means of escaping of their present afflic tion from depreciated paper. Should the conference fail, further depreciation of silver will follow; it will cease to be a legal-tender, and the money of India will no longer bear any fixed relation to that of Europe. The prospect for cotton depends upon American receipts, and they have fairly staggered peo ple. Since January the estimate ot the crop has been raised half a million bales, "a thing quite unexampled in our experience." Estimates now vary from 6,250,000 to 6,500,000 bales. There is much poor cotton, but it is likely a reserve of 600,000 bales greater than that of last year, will b carried forward to the next season. Cotton is now cheap, especially the low qualities; the price is less than has existed for any length of time since 1800. The state of trade is sound, the consumption enormous and the supply abun dant, but not excessive. For some years our stocks have been too small. Our stock may reach 1,100,000 bales; it reached 1,358,000 in 1860, and then the lowest price for mid dling Orleans was 6Jd. .The consumption was then 50,000 bales a week ; it is now 60, 000. At the present low prices the continent will absorb a considerable amount. We be lieve a large portion of the present visible supply will disappear nnder these influences, and probably the aspect of statistics is now nearly at the worst of the season. Under any ciicumstances, we think the extreme de pression of the last three months will not continue much longer; more active demand will soon set in, both here and in Manchester, and perhaps we are not far from the boltom prices of the season. A STBiNdEfS ESTIMATE or THE MISSISSIPPI. , The success of Eads's jetties, the increased European demand for American breadatuffs, and the exactions and oppressions of the railroads have all conspired to attract a larger share than formerly toward that great artery of western commerce, the Mississippi river. As a token of bow much interest is now taken in this subject, we have lying be fore us a neat pamphlet entitled: The JUutit- tippi River, and what iU Proper UtUizalion will Accomplish for thote who may Avail Themtchc of the Advantage Offered. This pamphlet is pub lished not at aome city in the Mis sissippi valley, but at Toledo, Dhio, a city overlooking one of the great northern lakes. The writer, J. M. Os borne, of Toledo, Ohio, sets out with the proposition "that where the water ways of a country have been utilized to the greatest extent, there the largest measure of material prosperity has been enjoyed by those located thereon and near them. The most extensive developments have been made wherever transportation facilities have been most abundant and performed at the least cost." The value of water communication has led to the expenditure of endless treasures, the writer goes on to say, in constructing canals, harbors, and so on. Considering the capa bilities of the Mississippi river, the number to be benefitted and the extent of country to be developed, the Mississippi river is unrivalled in importance, its natural conditions are all that can be desired. Probably nowhere else could as much be done for the sum expended as on a river connected with such a large amount of capital and traffic, having course so long, and giving transit a large class of vessels. The Miaaiasippi river is one of the country's greatest natural agents, and will give the greatest amount of service at the least cost. When the Erie canal was in course of con struction the inhabitants of New York, Oh io and all lands bordering on the northern lakes, watched its completion with the greatest interest. Like conditions would produce like results if the Mississippi were effectually improved. The Erie canal doubled ffc'e price of cleared lands in north ern Ohio, so this other improvement would do for the lands of Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas and the im portant territory in the south. The grain and other products would come into increased demand and command higher prices, and stock of all descriptions have ac cess to the beat markets and steadily advance in value. The old notions that grain could not be safely taken to sea by this river is ex ploded, and now observers are asking why so long a time baa been suffered to elapse without these advantages being improved to their utmost? Fleets of barges are now, however, conveying millions of bushels of corn to the seashore for shipment, thence to Europe, the probabilities of the route have been demonstrated, and increase of business by the great river is now only a question of time. The low rates at which freights can be taken, compared with the eastern rail roads, will draw the lake trade, through canal from Chicago to the father of waters. The decrease of tonnage from New York and its increase from the western States indicate the revolution in rates that la going on. Such is the light in which the Mississippi river and its grand possibilities are viewed by the citizens of Toledo, Ohio. It must be our part to show our appreciation of the advantages by quiring of the general government that such improvements shall be made as will regulate the width, consequently the current, and con sequently, also, the depth of the river, in order that there may be a regular and per manent depth from St. Paul down, so that navigation may proceed uninterrupted throughout the year, except when the ice close navigation. With such improvements how wonderfully would the prospects of Memphis and other river cjties increase. This is good advice to planters from the Yuden AWtut.- "Work your land, live at home and beware of deeds of trust on your homestead ; pay cash and buy only what you are necessarily compelled to have and you will soon see that even yet, though the bonny blue flag does not wave above us, this is truly the 'paradise of America.' " It IS stated in N w York that in const .L - 1. 1? . -. . quence oi me oarge lines on tne Mississippi river having formed a pool, and put freights down very low, the railroad pool will have to reduce rates materially to compete with it. This it cannot do and live, and suit, the pool will disband, and each road will get what it can. MAIIONE OR M0SBY. Under Which Kin; Will the Virginia Re publicans Rail In the Coming Con test,! A Delegation Headed by Congressman Jorgenaon, In an Interview With President Garfield, Say that the Party Wants a Straight Ticket Provision Made at the Cabinet Meeting for the Sufferers by the Recent Disastrous Floods. Wahhinotok, April 15. General Miles arrived here to-day, and says that the Whit taker court-martial will be wound up in two weeks. y VIOLATIONS OF COPYRIGHT. The postmaster-general has issued general orders concerning the violations of copy rights, and designating as unmailable mat ter any publications which violates any copy right granted by the United States. MOHBY TO BE RUN FOB GOVERNOR OF VIR GINIA. A delegation of Virginia Republicans, headed by Congressman Jorgenson, called on the President to-day and begged him not to recognize Mahone or to encourage any Re- Subhcan coalition with him. Representative orgenson was the principal speaker, and he assured the President that the Virginia Re publicans will not form any coalition with Mahone.' lie said the Republicans want a straight-out Republican ticket, and any at tempt to force an alliance with Mahone will be fatal to the party. Representative Jor genson stated that a straight-out Republican convention will be held in ninety days, to nominate a straight Republican ticket for State officers in Virginia; that it was intend ed to nominate General Wickham for gov ernor; but his business prevents him from running, and the present purpose is to nomi nate Colonel Mosby, now consul at Hong Kong. Instead of appointing more read justers, the delegation urged the President to remove those now holding office. The Presi dent said he would thoroughly consider all of the questions and act for the best good of the Republican party. Representative Jor genson thinks they have stopped any chance of affiliation with Mahone. RELIEF FOB THE FLOODED DISTRICTS. The war and navy departments were un represented at the cabinet meeting to-day owing to the absence of Secretaries Hunt and Lincoln, l he situation in Uakota was con sidered, and President Garfield called atten tion to the destitute condition of hundreds of homeless sufferers by the floods, and expressed an earnest desire to have every needed relief extended with the least possible delay. It was decided toauthorize the issuing of rations' for two weeks, and clothing and supplies. An arrangement was made by which salt meat, which cannot be furnished at the need ed points but in insufficient quantities by the war department, be furnished through the interior department from Indian supplies, to be replaced eventually by the war depart ment. Governor Ordway was at the White House immediately after the cabinet meeting to confer with the President relative to car rying out plans for the relief. . DELEGATION OF MANUFACTURERS. A large delegation of manufacturers of woolen goods called upon Axsiatant-Secretary French at the treasury department to-day and expressed a desire to be heard upon the construction of the decision of the supreme court which reduced the duly fifty cents per pound on a large claws of woolen fabric, and held that stockings of worsted and cotton are dutiable at 35 per cent, ad valorem under schedule " M," which includes several enu merated articles with stocking, and not un der schedule " L " as knit goods at a high rate of duty. The articles of most impor tance to American manufacturers appear to be knit shirts and drawers, and as there in some doubt as to whether these articles are included in the decision referred to, the treasury department has directed collectors not to apply the decision to this clam of goods until otherwise ordered. The delega tion will be heard to-morrow. STANLEY. Last Seen Far Up the ('onto and Liv ing; on Pr vision Brought from Europe. The Philadelphia Prea prints a letter from Yuseph H. Reading, of the Gaboon and Coriaco mission, dated December, 1880, in in which the following tidings are given of Stanley's expedition up the Congo. The missionary says: ""Count de Bray a, an Italian explorer, arrived here yesterday from the Congo river. He went up the Ogowe river as far as he could get in a canoe, thence overland, six days journey, to the Congo, down the Congo to the sea, and so here by steamer, thus making a complete circuit. The point at which he reached the Congo . was five days journey inland from Stanley Pool. Coming down the river he met Stanley and his party twenty-five miles inland from a place called Avedi. He stayed with them one day. Stanley's party were in a mountainous country and obliged to travel overland, for the river was full of rapids. Their progress was slow. There were no provisions to be had where they were. The men were eating rice and the donkeys corn or bay, all brought from Eu rope. He reports one of the missionaries of the English Baptist mission shot in the groin by the natives. .The count goes up the Ogowe again to-morrow to continue his ex plorations, tie represents tne countrv tar up the Ogowe to be a tablo land 3400 feet above the sea, comparatively free from fever, and supporting a large and peacelul popu lation." COXCENTKATED HAY. A Sew Article of Animal Food which may be Exported like Cotton seed Meal Cake. Virginia CAroniWe.- Every day brings some thing new ia some part of the world. Wo are now to Jiave hay cake, or concentrated hav. A ranchman from Truckee Meadows informs us that a gentleman named Van de Velde, from Chicago, has established himself in tne vauey, ana is engagea in mailing ex periments for the concentration of hay. He is said to be succeeding admirably in his un dertaking. A quantity of alfalfa hay is run through an iron grinding machine similar to a bark mill, and reduced by the addition of boiling water (a small Btreaui of which enters the mill with the chop) to a sort of pulp. The pulp is put into a large kettle shaped receptacle of boiler-iron called a di gester. In this the pulp is treated with steam, under great pressure, and comes out a brown liquid of about the appearance and consistency of ordinary molasses. This is put throngn strainers yf strong woolen stuff, and the liquid is then evaporated and molded into cakes 01 about the size ot a common brick. The pulp remaining in the strainers is placed in a powerful press and a further Quantity obtained lor evaporation. The residue taken Irom the press appears 10 ue mere woody fiber, as destitute of nutritious matter as so much sawdust. This can be read ily utilized in the manufacture of wrapping and other coarse kinds of Datier. Mr. Van de Velde expects to find a ready market for 1 1 a.; v- rf 1 UIJ VHCS 111 AllWUHOn BUU ULiicr places where hay commands enormous pri ces.

Thus the fibrous matter originally in the hay is restored. Mr. Van de Velde thinks of erect ing permanent works at some suitable point in California next summer.

The Cleveland base-ball team played its first game of the season with the White Sewing-Machine com pany 'a nine, a very strong local semi-professional club. Score: Cleveland, 12; Whites, 0. The Cleveland team only went to the bat eight times. The Newspaper roasuletf Horace On Sunday last, the occasion being its fortieth birthday, the New York Tribune stated that during the past year its circula tion was greater man at any iormer periou, "with the exception of a single month or two in the first Lincoln campaign." Huring the year its profits exceeded those of any former four years of its history, and the Sunday Tribune was declared to be "the most profit able of its daily issues." In calling atten tion to these facts, the Tribune editorially adds: "The panic of 1873 caught the Tribune just launched on heavy real estate purchases and the erection of a costly build ing. In these enterprises and in the intro duction of new machinery throughout every department, it has expended between nine hundred thousand and one million dollars. The debt thus incurred has been steadily re duced until its entire liability of every de scription now amounts, less the cash surplus oo hand, to only one hundred thousand dol lars.. Lnder the terms of the loan, this can not be further reduced for two years from next May. We are shut up, therefore, to either the completion of the buildiug by ad ditions which will more than double our rent able space, or the resumption of long deferred dividends." This will be welcome news to a very large number of people who have never been able to get over the notion that the Iribune is one of the beet edited and best written newspapers in the world. ME. DAVIS'S WORK Oa the "Rise and Fall or the Confeder ate Uovernment" Still the Sob- Ject of Acrimonious C' mens ly Leading Republican Papers, wbo Think It Neither Points a Moral nor Adorna n Tale We Shall Nee. We continue the publication ol the no tices of Mr. Jefferson Davis's book that have appeared in leading Republican papers, based upon the extracts published by the Appeal. The New York keening Pott, like the Herald, refuses to jump to a conclusion without further light, and rests its present . . -1-, , , . . i i . : conclusions on an u. nut tne uintmunu Gazette falls into the same mistake as the New York Tribune, and of course reaches the same ungenerous conclusion. Jen Davis Book. Cincinnati Gazette: "Some time ago we published an account of Jeff Davis's Rite and Fait of the Covjtdmic Government, containing an outline ot lia lacts and arguments. The extracts wero nut prepossessing, but the subject is an interesting one, mf nn mn-hsa nan a better onoortunttv of leath ering information which would be eagerly sought hv twiHtu nf renders north and south. Fuller Q uo- tauont furnished to the Memphis Appeal to help me circulation oi me noos, wnit-u 10 wms nwm uj subscription, only con arm tne original impression, that the author's work has been very poorly per formed. The book is dry, and contains very little not already known to careful observers, Iiavis is as treat a failure in literature as he was in politics ilau he intrusted his recollections to some one skilled in book writinir he might have done mncn hotter. Hia introduction is an assertion of the Federal as distinguished Iron the national theory of our Union. Iu his opinion the war grew out of sectional rivalries and ditl'ereuces, slavery being a mere side issue. Yet the south was greviously wronged. It only exercised its plain rightof seces sion in a noble and magnanimous manner. Yet he oonfessea to a real Yankee shrewdness iu send ing captain, afterward Admiral Bemmes, to the north on the third day after his Inauguration to buy amis to be used against itself. The arms were bought, but the vigilance of the authorities pre vented their delivery. There is nothing iu the book to rlooletlie surface of its stagnant dullness, except his assertion that Joe Johnston and not he himself was respousible for the failure to follow up trie victory at Bull Rim. There are two parties on this Question at the south, and the friends of John ston may accept the challenge here offered. We mialit say more about the book, but thus far nothing has anoeared to show that it is worth much attention. We wish it were otherwise, for a fuir history of the rebellion from tneaxtreme southern standpoint U a desideratum. JefXerHon Dafls'a Hemolra. New York Evening Pot: "If the passages from Mr. Jefferson Davis's memoirs which the Memphis Appeal has printed at all fairly represent tnat work, tne oook is as uninteresting as a uenn ouent tax list, as uniiiinortant as yesterday's ora tory in the Semite. Mr. Davis had it in bis power to make the book both Interesting and important. There are many matters concerning which the pub lic has been anxious to hear what be has to say, because he has special information concerning tin-in. There are some ol these things upon which he can scarcely afford to keep sflence. ery grave charges have been made against Mr. Davis himself by southern writers of repute, and his answer has been expected iu these volumes. He has been ac cused of obstinate interference with his generals iu the held. It has been said that he refused to permit Lee to save life by evacuating Richmond or ty arming the negroes, when he declared one or the other course to be necessary. It has been said, upon high authority, that Mr. Davis permitted bis petty prejudices for and against men to interfere seriouslv with military operations a fact, if it is a fact, which makes him responsible for what ever sacrifice of human life resulted therefrom. It has been pointed oat that when the Hampton Roads conference was held Mr. Davis knowing perfectly that the south had failed, and that Mr. Lincoln,' in his anxiety to bring the war to a speedy close, was prepared to grant reasonable terms in the restoration of the t nion wickedly made such a peace impossible and compelled the continuation of the war to the point of utter de struction, by forbidding his commissioners even to discuss the subjects of peace upon the only terms upon which Mr. Lincoln could or would discuss it at all. If this is true, Mr. Davis is personally re spousible for all the lives lost after that time, and for all the fearful destruction wrought in the south. Has he cleared his skirls of these things in his book? There is nothing in the passages published by the Appeal to indicate that he has done so; or that the book is aught else than a re-threshing of old and oft beaten straw. The impression which we get from these patsagts is that Mr. Davis has stood stock still, intellectually, for six teen years. He laboriously goes over the old arguments iu justification of seces sion as a right arguments as familiar to every body as army overcoats once were, and as idle in the repetition as Rev. John" Jasper's assaults upon the Coiwmican system, and that without regard to their original souudness or unsoundness. Even if we gram that, in the discussion of the respective rights and powers of the States and the general government, the south was logically right, it is still idle to go over that ground again. At best and at worst the points iu dispute in I860 were points in dispute, and arms were appealed to for their settlement. The war settled them, finally and forever, as everybody iu the country, north and south, excent Mr. Davis, understands. Every body else took up life and moved forward from the new point of departure fixed by the result of the wur. Mr. Davis seems to have stood still. and now he fondiy seeks to beckon us back to the old time. His book, so tar as tne published extracts enable us to judge, is simply an ana chronism; anil unless there is something in it other and better worth while than is indicutcd iu these pages, it will be the saddest disappointment to everybody who has expected to find in it some record of facts not publicly known, some explana tion of concurrences which have seemed to be blame-worthy results of Mr. Davis's obstinate in competency as the leader of a brave, though mis- taken, people in a mine attempt at revoiuti n. Possibly the book in its fullness may satisfy these just expectations; in that case the selections from it nave neen singui-iny 111 enoseu. vtesnauwau and sec. Aallqalty I'neart tied f-'lood. Cieorglw A wonderful discovery has been made at the farm of Mr, Frank Perry, in this neigh borhood. The Coosa river was higher than ever before aud the farm was completely overflowed, and when the waters subsided they did so with a rush, which literally peeled off the top soil to a greater depth than it had ever been penetrated with either plow or spade. After the overflow the greater part of the farm was found to be an uncovered battlefield or burying-ground. Part of the territory consisted of mounds. evidently fortifications, strewn with imple ments ot aboriginal warfare, beads and earthen vessels, and the remainder was cov ered thickly with skeletons, all exposed, in a good state ot preservation, and all lying in regular rows. The place is attracting crowds from all directions, and it is almost imos sible to prevent vandalism. The field will undoubtedly prove to rcicntists one of the richest "find" ever made on the American continent, and among the countless number of Indian pipes found is one of great size and exceedingly tine workmanship, ihe bowl is carved with great skill in tbe form of a human head. Cellars that Need Attention. Man is made with a cellar nnder him. said Mr. Beecher in Plymouth lecture-room, Fri day evening. The cellar is an old country honne because a sort of omnium gatherum, full of tilings to be used, as the attic is the place of things used already. There are potatoes, turnips, onions, etc., in the cellar. In the spring waim weather comes and the cellar is full of odors; there is the beef brine at the foot of the stairs that stinks; in one corner a must of rotten potatoes, and in another tur nips with their own peculiar sweetness. Then sickness comes. The doctors never saw such a case (there are many things doctors never saw), and after one or two have died they talk about a mvsterious 1'rovidence. God knows it is the rotten onions in the cellar. So it is with some people's doubts. They are full of corruption of all sorts. If you have religious doubts, look in the cellar awhile, Let Adam and Eve shift for themselves and look out for yourselves. Dr. Wilbor's Cod-Liver Oil and Lime.

Hugh Dickson Shot Dead in His Bed by His Brother-in-Law, Captain S. M. Thompson, near Shreveport, for Dragging and Outraging His Daughter. A Cold-Blooded. Border Karderer is Threatened with Lynching Stabbed to Death for Taking a Boy's Part In a Quarrel with a Man Mail Robber Canght. Jefferson (Tex.) Democrat, 13th: A rumor reached Khreveport early in the forenoon on Sunday that Mr. M. Hugh Dickson, a well- known citizen ana planter, nau committea suicide at his plantation, on the river eight een miles above Shreveport. It was subse quently ascertained, during the day, that be bad been killed in bis bed by his brother-in-law, Captain S. M. Them as. At 4 p.m. Cap tain Thomas rode to Shreveport, stated what he had done, and surrendered himself to the sheriff. He is now in jail. The brothers-in-law had been on the most friendly and inti mate terms. Dickson bad been stopping at Thomas's house in Shreveport during a trial of a civil suit in the district court, in which they were co-defendants and which oc cupied in its trial nearly the whole of last week. Ihe particulars of this deplorable af fair, briefly related, are as follows: On Fri day night, the eighth instant, Captain Thomas claims that he was placed in possession of evidence that left no room for doubt that M. Hugh Dickson had committed a crime and outrage, too revolting to be mentioned, upon a female member of his (Thomas's) family. Burning with indig nation Thomas at once proceeded to seek him and avenge the dishonor he had brought on his iv me. The next morning he received in timations that Dickson contemplated leaving the country. Thomas procured a horse on Saturday evening and on Sunday morning. between daylight and sunrise, reached the Kusli plantation walked into Dickson s room. where he found him asleep. He roused him, drew back the bedclotuing, charged him with the commission of the crime, told him he had come to kill him, and ohot him through the head with his pistol. Thomas says : "I then left the room and proceeded to the one occupied by Mrs. Matlie Dickson, the widowed sister-in-law of Hugh Dickson, knocked upon her door, called to her and said, ' I leave some paers at your door which I wish you to read.' Those papers which I left on the floor outside the door were conies of papers con taining the evidence of M. Hugh Dickson's guilt, which had been placed in my posses sion. I then walked out of the house, mount ed my horse, and leisurely rode awav in the direction of Shreveport. In approaching ana leaving the house 1 saw no one on the premises except two colored servants who were in the yard. Upon reaching the resi dence of Mr. James Marks, jr., a few miles oeiow 1411BI1 romt, l went in and told him what 1 had done, and upon reaching bhrcve port surrendered myselt to the custody of the officers of the law, to whom I made substantially the same statement as the above." It seems to have been about as cool and deliberate an assassination as ever occurred. The Times says: "The whole case has been freely and extensively discussed in this community and the universal sentiment, based upon the facts as far as they have come to light, is so far as we have learned, that Captain lliomas has simply discharged a stern duly which justice to himself and family imperatively demanded in pursuing tne course he has. t'ansht in Ihe Act or Robbing the .Walls Cincinnati, April 15. J. G. Unser, dis patch clerk in the Cincinnati postothce, was arretted this morning for robbing t lie mails ol letters containing money. Mr. Hurt, su perintendent of mails, set a decoy for him and hid and watched and discovered biminthe act, and arrested him, He admits this case of stealing, but denies having stolen previ ously. For several mouths valuable pack ages have been stolen from these mails. He was held to answer and is in jail. Looking- After tbe Land Frauds. Prrrsisi RO, April 15. United States Dis trict-Attorney Jiliss. of fet. i,ouiH, is in the city, looking after persons implicated in the Aliiwourt land Irauds. Owing to the discov ery of the act of congress of 1873, legalizing land warrants issued without proof of actual settlement and cultivation of land, all prose cutions in the United States courts will be dropped. The United States authorities will, however, assist the State authorities in pros ecuting dealers in fraudulent deeds under state laws. It is said there are twenty-three persons in Allegheny county who are impli cated in these fraudulent transactions, aud the state authorities will unite with the gov ernment officers in preparing evidence to prosecute them at once. lie Hay diet Ills Deserts Without Delay. Laramie City, April 15. Early this morning Laramie City was the scene of a cold-blooded, revolting murder. Charles 1 erronet, a freight conductor on the Lara mie division of the Union Pacific railroad. murdered Road master C. IL Graves, at the southeast corner of the telegraph office. Both men were married, and each had a pleasant home with a wife and child. Perronet called Graves out of the telegraph office, and shot him dead. The murderer was promptly arrested and lodged in jail. Excitement is running very high, and threats of lynching are indulged in. This, however, the law abiding citizens will endeavor to avert, as the evidence is so overwhelming that the law is bound to take speedy action iu the case. Killed While Frotecting- a Boy. Cheykxse, April 15. A fatal stabbing affray occuned on a west-bound emigrant train at noon to-day, near Pine Bluffs Sta tion, Wyoming. A man named Black quar reled with a boy-passenger, and Evau Lewis interfered to protect the bov. Black then stabbed Lewis with a dirk-knife in tbe abdo men. Black jumped ofl the train, running across the plains, several passengers engaging in the pursuit. Black will probably be lynclred, if caught. Lewis is irom Dodge ville, Wisconsin, and was bound for Butte, Montana. Physicians says he will die within twenty-four hours. He lies in the Chevenne hospital. WISDOM'S Pit AN For the Mauaiccmciit of Ihe Malnrlui Debt Clenorally Approved In Wall Street. New York Bulletin: "The working plan of the treasury for managing the matur ing debt of the government was much dis cussed in Wall street to-day, and met with general approval. In a word, it is this: The secretary of the treasury notifies the holders of $195,090,400 6 per cent bonds that they can have their money for ihem July 1st, or can have them extended, at the pleasure of the treasury at Ah per cent. It is thought that the banks, which hold $45,000,000 of these bonds, will extend them, and there is talk of a syndicate of bankers organizing to take these bonds from such hold ers as want their money, and then have them extended at 3i per cent. Should this be done, the treasury would need to pay out little or none of its surplus revenues, but would have the money to use in extinguishing the 5 per cents where holders of them would not extend at 3i per cent. Whether, in case of an extension of all the 0s, the treasury would sell the J-lOo. 000,000 of bonds which may be issued as 4s or 44s is a question; but it is certain that the surplus revenues, which this year are esti mated, as applicable to the purchase of ma turing bonds, at fullv $80,000,000 it U cer tain, we say, that this money will be spent for bonds. The effect, therefore, on the moneyjmarket for the next six months will be favorable; and the effect on stock exchange investments will also be favorable. The Bomance of Beatrice Halone. Chicago folk Lore: "Beatrice Malone stood in the parlor of her father's house in Chica go. Her complexion and dress were all right, same as the other girl's. A boy came in and handed her a patier. She looked for a fauteuil, but the chambermaid was thumping the dust out of it in the back yard. Beatrice decided not to faint. The paper contained an account of the marriage of the man to whom Bhe was betrothed. She gazed at the print with a wild look, and saying softly to herself, '1 was afraid that sucker would get away,' began eating an apple. The noise brought her brother to the room. She hand ed him the paper. The next morn ing when the faithless lover came back from Cleveland, his eyes turned black and blue and his nose was spread all over his face, He had seen her brother." A Remarkable Man. A Rochester correspondent of York Sun gives the following in the Xew regard to Lorenzo A. Pickles, of Newfane, in that State, who peddles trees throughout western New York: "He is seventy years old, and measures six feet and five inches in hight. He has thirteen sisters and eight brothers. r .1 . and is the smallest of the entire family. One brother, who lives in Kentucky, is seven feet two and a half inches in hight, and weighs 275 pound, althoueh he is spare in flesh. The littlest sister is six feet five and a half inches talL The familv is scattered, no two living in the same State. Lorenzo Pickles " baa the appearance of a man of forty. He never wears a coat, and goes without stock ing winter and summer. He has two pupils in each eye. To distinguish objects close by, Mr. Pickles uses powerful magnifying glasses. He can read print and see things at a greater distance, without the aid of glasses, than it is possible for persons with the .natural eye to see. He never tasted liqnor of any kind in his life, and never drinks water. Three small cups of tea a dar. winter and summer. suffice to quench Mr. Pickles's thirst. He never eats fresh meat. Hia chief article of diet is salt pork, though he likes salt meats and fish, lie eats two tabl spoonfuls of salt every day, and prefers salt to sugar in his tea. rie and cake or sweetmeats ot any xina ne never tastes. He savs he believes his hale and hearty condition is due mainly to the salt he uses. Mr. Pickles is a widower, but he has two daughters one is sever! teen years old. the other twelve. The oldest ia six feet and half an inch tall. The youngest is five teet nine inches, and their lather, says tney are lioth still growing." r.- CR0S PURPOSES. Tne Sheriff of Livlagstoao County , Ala bama, Dispossessed of Property Seised by Hlaa Under mm Order of Attachment by I ho Halted States Ha shal By Strategy, However, He Resralns Possession aad Holds the Goods The Hufltsville (Ala.) Independent, of the fourteenth, savs that "Mr. Ed M. Carney, a well-known merchant ot Ctreenorier, lime stone county, having gotten into business straits, certain of hia creditors in Memphis, represented by Colonel roston, a leading lawyer of Memphis, brought suit in attach ment and by garnishment in tha circuit court of Limestone. Sheriff Harris proceeded to Greenbrier shortly afterward, and made a levy on Mr. Carney's stock of goods in due form, took an inventory, and left Mr. Samuel Mingea as deputy in charge, leaving 1 with Mr. Mingea certain papers in garnish ment to bo served near at hand. Mingea locked the door and closed the windows and went out to serve his papers, and when he returned he found United States officials in charge (suit bad likewise been started in the United States court). Mingea, under ad vice of Colonel Joseph McDonald, at torney, protested and telegraphed to Sheriff Harris, at Athens, stating what the sanation was. The sheriff, after taking full legal ad vice, proceeded to Greenbrier and, as the property which was in his official cha-ge had been seized by the L nited states marshal or his deputies, he demanded the property. Upon his demand being refused, he, in the course of an hour or two, by strategy and otherwise, got possession of the property. Upon complaint of Lnited States Deputies Green anil Hewlett, before Coinniasioner Itooue, writs of arrest were issued for Sheriff J lien P. Ilarrti. is. U. Harrison. Joseph Mc Donald, B. L. Allen, John Vandcrerift, Jas. XI : . Uwl Mlnmi TInn r'k.rloo P Lone, John Floyd, Robert Bibb, Charles Coolev. Buck Tate, i red McLvnn. Stephen Hooks and James Webb. Most ' of these persons were summoned as ; a 1 posse to aid Sheriff Harris in ' what he was instructed to be his right and duty in the premises. They are as good, patriotic citizens, and in all respects as law- abiding as any citizen anywhere in the United States, and the empty charges 'of dis appointed United States deputies will not enect their character in tbe least .Among them are two or three colored men. The two deputies charged these citizens with un lawfully interfering with United States offi cers in the discharge of their duty, and, upon their complaint, all of the above natued were brought all the wav from Limestone to Huntsville vesterdav. "Sheriff Harris is still in possession of the Carney property." HE, KATE FIELD. Who wallops us, and on our ears Bestows a box that draws forth tears? Our father! Who bullies us and calls us names?

Their Present Condition and Fatsre Prospects, as Reported by tbe De partment of A'arlenltnre. Washington. April 15. The reports of April 1st, received at the department of agri culture, show an increase of nearly four per cent, in the area of sown winter wheat. Kan sas and Missouri show the largest increase, Ohio and Illinois but a slight one, and New i ork and Pennsylvania remain tbe same as last year. Indiana, Kentucky and V irginia each report a decrease. Owing to the preval ence of snow at the date of the returns, the condition of the crop was not given in large portions of the principal wheat-growing States; but, wherever . mentioned, it was stated as below the average of last year. The alternate freezing and thawing during the month of March was the most detrimental of all weather during the winter. Ihe live stock ot the country, notwith standing the scarcity of feed and provender caused by the long and severe winter, has come out in fair health, though reported as very low in flesh. No malignant disea-e is reported as prevailing over any large extent ol country. Local disorders of the lungs and stomach are often mentioned, aud great losses from cold and exposure are reported Irom the far west. THE EFFECT or the Re-EKtabllshment of State Credit at the FInanelaF Center of Ihe Country. New York Financial Clironiele: "The legislature has adjourned, after making all necessary provision, according to the latest received dispatches, for can-vine out the provi i ms of the law. The t fleet is already seen in a rise in the price of the bonds of other States as well as Tennessee, and a large increase in transactions. Thus Wall street shows appreciation of the force which this example must necessarily exert in other States. Nothing could be more gratifying to this journal than to record the successful and honorable adiuetment ol these Mate debts. especially since it has never ceased to labor to brine toetther the states and the bond holders upon an equitable basis.. It comes now in good time as a fit precursor of the cotton exhibition to be soon held in Atlanta. It suggests the healing of the old breach, the removal of what is known as 'the southern question' from politics, and the obliteration of geo graphical divisions. We firmly believe that a new day is at hand tor this Jong backward halt ot the country, and that tbe day is al ready dawning, 'ihe little men who attain and hold solitical power bv pandering to prejudice aud pasxion will be 'relegated to obscurity under the reHiHlless operation of the peacelul lorces ol industry and produc tion. Commercial intercourse must and will unify the countrv. The niea who can com mand power will be the men who can im prove and increase production, facilitate ex change and promote material development." The Sphinxes Being fast In London. A large number of ladies and gentlemen assembled recently at the Lccleaton iron- -1... n;i;An .. ... : , - , I. , : . t l. first o the bronze sphinxes which are to be placed one on either side ot Cleopatra s needle on the Victoria embauknient. The sphinxes have been designed by Mr. Vul liamv. who, during his travels in Kcvpt. made the architecture of that country his special study. When completed the sphinxes will be placed at the base of the needle in line witn the embankment, one looking to ward Westminster and the other toward the citv. Each sphinx will be nineteen feet long by six feet wide, and nine feet high over all, and will weigh about seven tons. The visitors were shown the four wings which are to be placed one at each angel of tiie obelisk where it rests on the masonry base. These were also designed by Mr. Vulliamy, and cast in bronze, as well the lour tilling pieces be tween the wines. Each of the filling pieces represents the cartouche of Thothmes III, the insignia being the sun, a craftboard and a beetle. Ten years of experience has firmly rooted Tutt's I'ill in public estimation. Their won derful adaptability to the various forms of disease is a marvel to medical men of all schools. They are largely used in hospitals in r.urope and America, as well as in the army and navy. Cuba and other countries, where yellow-fever prevails, consume mill ions ol boxes annually. TUTTS PIULS.
