Le Kouveau Monde says : "It is said that a very mysterious murder has been comitted in a place not stated, by persons whoso names are concealed as much as possible. If tho matter is unveiled we will speak of it." The following is the supposed solution of the mystery. It seems to pos.nexs all the characteristics of a sensational hoax : "Un an evening o! March last, at about eleven o'clock, a ravclcr was crossing the small bush on he left shore of Mille Isle river, between St. Kustach a:;d St. Rone. That location has always, rightly or not, possessed the reputation of being fatal to belated trav elers. Tho man, then, was ouiotly cross ing tho silent wood, when suddenly an individual in rags, and with sinister looks, jumped at tho hoist s bridle, and bran dishing an axe over the affrighted person s head, cries, 'Your money or your life. Tho traveler anwrcrod, l have only 820: there they are, and lot me go. Having received tho money, the robber allowed his victim to leave, which he did at the fullest gallop of his horso. At a short difttanco from the wood, the travel cr knocked at the dour of a small house and begtrcd for hospitality. In that house there was only a woman, who first refused admittance, giving, for excuse, that her hunbaud was away. However, upon more pressing entreaties, she allow ed the stranger to enter her lodging, and directed him to the garret to spend the rot of the night. He went up, and as he wa preparing a placo for sleeping, he heard a vo'.eo which bo recognized as that of tho assailant in the bush. Here, wife, said the voiec, 'I have done a good busi- m to-night. I have met a man in the wood from whom I dctnaded his money or his life, and he gave me $20 'Good,' said the woman, 'I tot that is tho man up stairs. lc. said husband. and he must have moro money.' Wcll said tho old woman, 'he will toon be a aideop and wo will kill him.' 'I will go un to the garret, said the man, 'and will knock him down with my axe : then you wil cut his throat wilh my razor 'Agreed,' said tho woman. During that con versa tion it may well be supposed that our trav clcr did not go to sloep, but kept watch ing for the conclusion of tho horrible drama he had just heard the couple plan ning. One hour afterwards the traveler heard the approaching footsteps of the enemies; the man in front win his axe a a a ana the worn -in holding a lamp in one hand and a razor in the other. As the robber entered the room, the traveler ud denly tor tho axe from his hands, and knocked him down senseless at one blow Then the woman flew at the falling body whose head she severed with the razor little thinking she was killing her own husband. Tho traveler flew from the houo and made a deposition before . magistrate, ana it is said tho woman is now in jail." 8(111 iuother Little Nlory. Yve have published quite a number 0 a. . m m 0 . a little stories pertaining to the public in general, and tho craft in paiticular, yet still have another left, which is as follws THE TWO MERCHANTS. -I. When trade grew lack and notes fel due, the merchant's face grew long and blue ; his dreams were troubled throug the night, with sheriffs' bailiffs all i sight. At last his wife unto him eaid Rise up at onc get out of bed, aud get your papr, ink and pen, and say these words unto all men : My goods I wish to sell to you, and to your wives and daughters too; my prices they shall be so low, that each will buy before they go. He did as his good wife advised, and in the papers advertised. Crowds came and bought of all he had j his notes were paid, his dreams mado glad ; and he wi tell to you this dav, how well did printer' ink repay. He told us this with know ing wink., how ho was saved by printer' ink. II. The other in a placo as tight, contented was tho press to slight: and did not le the people know, of what he did or where to go. His drafts fell duo and wero not paid, and a levy on his goods was made; the storo was closed until tho sale, and for some timo he was, in jail. A bank rupt now without a cent, at lcisuro he can deep repent, that he was foolish and unwise, and did not freely advertise. If you think tho moral of this story wise, you should not neglect to advertise. e Animals. The maintainance of ani mals in the stable or in the yards at any timo of tho year is unnatural, but if they have a great abundance of food and pop siderable range, the conditions surround ing them approach those they aro subject to in the wild state. Tho amountjf food animals exposed to the weathpr'wiil cat is enormous, and f-hen thoy never como out in moro than fair condition. Wo think overy spring that it is almost absurd to reiterate our condemnation of farmers who expeot, as a matter of course, to have their cattle "6pring poor." This ponditjon of a man's stock tells of expos ure, lack of food, and of very serious 1qsse3 to tho farmer himself losses both of fodder waited and of cattlo injured in their productiveness for tho rest of the yearj or tho rest pf their liyes. . ; hht- - New Pens If a steel pen is hard and obstinate, refuses to, yiejd 'when pressed, and annoys by its rigidity, ho$ it half. a minute or"le3s in tho flame of a gaslight or candle, and stick it into wa ter, oil, or tallow. In most instances it will euro the rigidity. In fact, it is a good practice to pass a steel pen through the flames before using it. - This burns off the oil used in tempering, and pre vents that slipping of the ink, or the re fusal to flow, generally noticeable in all new steel pens. NO. 44. Mketcli of King Theodore. Tho Emperor Theodore, Mr, Dufton tells us, was born about 1820, in tho Prov ince of Kwara, which is situated to tho wct of Lake Tzana, and of which his undo was Governor. His mother was. according to some, of low extraction j but, according to others she was of good birth, and could even trace her descent to the Queen of Sheba, the prthodox ancestress of Abyssinian royalty. Kassa. for such is tho Jumper or s real name, soon distm- guinucu iiimseu lor nis oravery ana tal i i i. ' .. t . , . ent lor war, and on tho death of his un cle he acquired tho Government of Kwa ra. He soon enlarged his dominions bv tho conquest of adjacent Provinces, and at length after having experienced vary ing fortunes, tie Uetcated Ah Has, of Amhara, whose daughter he had previ ously married, aqd effected tho conquest a - l t a a mm a a oi mat rrovmce. I no clement ol re 12 ion, which is so singularly blended in ThcodoruH character, is shown by the iw ti f m prayer wnicn ne puonciy ouerea up alter us victory, ana wnicn is as lonows : " 1 prabjc Thee, O God, that Thou hast man- festcd f hy goodnew to a poor sinner like ft m mm m s roc. Whom lhou humblest is bumbled, and whom Thou exaltcst is exalted. Thine is the power and glory, for ever and ever. Being now installed at Gondor as lias of Amhara, a rank which carried with it the nominal allegiance of the whole of Abyssinia, Kassa sent to claim tribute fiom Onbie, Prince of Tigrc. This be ... i t - . .. mg rcincu, ne inarcnea witn an army against him, and, having defeated him iu tho battle of Deraskio, he had hi rase 1 crowned as Negus Theodoras, or King of kiogs of Ethiopia. His assumption o: the name of Theodorus appears to have been mado in consequence of an ancient prophecy that an hmpcror of that name would raiMO tho Kingdom of Abyssinia to an unprecedented pitch of greatness. He then attacked the Wallo Galbs, a 3Io homeden tribe between Amhara and Hhoa, acd defeated them in a battle, in in which their King, Adara Bille. wa3 slain. Theodorus had thus made himself mas ter of the whole of Abvssinia. with the exception of Sboa, which had long been virtually an independent state. ;ainst this Kingdom he now directed his arms, and soon succeeded in complete ly subjugating it, thus uniting under his sway the wbolo of the so loog disunited j a provinces ci Abyssinia, liu next pro ject was to drive the Turks from their possessions on tbe coast, and thus to ac quire for Abyssinia an outlet on the Red cea an aa vantage wnicn that country had cot possessed since Massowah was taken by the Turks, in the sixteenth cen tury. 1 Ins, however, he was never in a position to attempt. His conquered prov inces revolted, and the cruel clement in his character, which soon developed it self, so alienated his subjects that they gradually icu away iroui mm, until now he seems to hold little territory beyond that in the immediate neighborhood of Dcbra Tabor, which he has mado bis cap ital. Theodorus appears to be a man of great talent, courage and energy, with a singular power over others. Mr. Dafton, who saw 'him in 1863, thns describes him : " His appearance was that of a man about forty-five, and possessed of a well-knit but not overpowerful frame, conveying the idea of being tough and wiry rather than of a strong physical de vclopement. His features are dark; ap proaching to black, but he has nothing of the negro about him. His features are altogether thoso of the European. His head is well formed, and his hair is arranged in large plaits extending back from the forehead. His forehead is high and tends to be prominent. His eye is black, full of fire, quick, and piercing. His nose has a little of the Roman about it, be ng slightly arched and pointed. His mouth is perfect, and the smile which, during tho conversation, continually played upon it was exceedingly agreeable, I may say, fascinating. He has very lit- tie monstacne or Deara. 11 is manner is pleasant,, gracious and even polite, and his , general expression, even when his features were at rest, was one of intelli gence and benevolence. On the whole, tbe physiognomist could find no trace of fierce passion save in the lightning glance of his eyes. I watched for the keen shot of light coming from them at times, and reflected on what he could bo capa ble; but they did not strike me as treach erous eyes. I felt that ho could act sav- ageiy under irritation. no adds in a note, " I here take occasioq to remark that, though Theodorus consumes a vast quantity of arrapky, he is no drunkard : that is, I have never heard of him beipg overcome with drink, .lie always stops at a certain point. . , One noitSE. A member of one of our best business firms, who does not in vest much in advertising, lately sent a copy of the Democrat to his sister, resid ing east, bho wrote back that she had read the paper carefully and was much pleased with the samo, but had searched in vain for their advertisement, and had therefore concluded that they were a lit tle "one-horse concern." Moral Business men, if you wish to command the respect and attention of the publio, and make money you should ad vertise.

JlOiX irwune. sir. Jialcom then sent a com munication in reply to the Tribune, from, which we take the following extract. They are sensible and to the point. Ue says : " I have been a republican from thu organization of the party. I opposed slavery believed it was- wrong for. one portion ot the human family to be com pelled to Jabor lor and support another. more favored portion of our race. I tm now opposed to compelling our farmers, mechanics ond other working classes to pay taxes for state purposes and for the support of local government in counties, towns, cities and villages, and for ' build-, ing court-houses, jails, poor-houses, school houses, bridges, highways, and their maintenance which holders of United Stales bonds ought to pay. I favor equal and exact justice in taxation and equal civil rights for all men, and I am unabla to see that such measures would conflict with our national constitution or violate, tho obligation of contracts. " The people submitted to the acts of Congress that compelled them to tike United States notes in payment of pri vate debts which were payable in gold; when contracted, because there was a necessity for such a law, and it operated alike upon all classes of society. And they can not see how any injustice would be douc to holders of United States bonds not payable iu gold, if the govern ment should pay sucn bonds in legal-ten-, der notes, in case the holders of such, bonds will not exchange them for bonds . subject to taxation under state laws. " If you will mingle a little more than, you do with the masses of the people, you will learn that tbey demand that jus-. tice shall be done respecting the taxation, of national bonds, and that the people, are fearfully in earnest upon this ques tion. And what is right, legal and just they will maintain at the polls of elec tions. " All - holders of United States bond should be willing to bear their just pro portion of the burdens of all kinds of taxation, and thus surely prevent repudi ation of the national debt. " Your talk of our national bonds all going abroad if they should be subject to taxation under the state laws provokes a smile. It is the merest bosh. It seem to me that very few, if any, holders of such bonds would sell them for such a reason, ce cause iney coma not invest the proceeds thereof in any non-taxable set curitics. But if they should sell their bonds in Europe the proceeds would come back to this country in money oc property, and be subject to taxation un der state laws. And there is no danger that bondholders will bite off their own. noses. "Our State bonds are held in this coun try, notwithstanding they are taxable un der State laws, and our national bonds would be held here as they now are should they be subject to such taxation. "Our State bonds are above par in the market, and the price of our national bonds would also remain above par at out stock boards if they were declared to ba taxable for State and municipal purposes, for the reason that they aro the most de sirable securities that capitalists can pur chase or hold in this or any other coun try.' ; , ' "If it is wrong, and opposed to the gen eral welfare, for one man to live at ease upon means i n vested in bonds exempt from, taxation, while his neighbor is compelled) to labor, and pay taxes that should be ap portioned and levied upon the entire prop erty of both according to the amount own? cd by each, then the resolution I have presented in the assembly is right, and you should favor it ; but otherwise it should be rejected, and privileged classes; be supported in this country by our labor ing people. ?'Now, sir, I most earnestly implore you to favor the conversion of our entire na tional debt into bonds subject to taxation, for State and municipal purposes, as soon, as that can bo accomplished under the Constitution of the United States, without doing any injustice to the holders of bond already issued, and thus, save the Repub; lican party from defeat next fall, and pre vent repudiation of the national debt by the Democratio party." : " A Williamsport paper savs a young man was recently discovered in an interi or town'done up in female toggery, en gaged in the ravishing business of fitting ladies' corsets.
