The court ruled that the demand was illegal, and that a combi nation and threat to prevent workmen from being employed was an illegal conspiracy. This is certainly consonant with equity and common sense, and a few more such decis ions would convince lawless men that they cannot resort to terrorism in order to influ ence fellow-lalmrers and employers.

It is well known that icebergs cool the wa ter around them to a considerable distance. An American gentleman named Dion lias made this fact the foundation of an inven tion to protoot vessels against collision with icebergs. He proposes to place on the bot tom of steamers or other vessels an appa ratus so arranged as to sound an alarm on the instant a ship's keel enters a stratum of cold water. [From the Sunday Times.] TARDY'S LAST VICTIM. Every one has heard of Tardy the Pirate, in his (lay little less renowned than was Captain Kidd in his own. He, with a dozen of his fiendish crew, was hanged near Norfolk. Virginia; and it was his boast, even when under the gibbet, tltat he had killed and caused the deaths of more than six hundred persons. His favorite mode of putting to death those whom he captured, was by making them "walk the plank," as it was called—a refinement of cruelty in which ho took great delight. A long plank was placed over the side of the vessel, one end resting upon the deck. The victim, a weight attached to his body, was made to walk very slowly up this plank, until approaching the far ther end, it gradually yielded beneath his weight, and he was precipitated into the sea. Thus would Tardy make a ship's crew, passengers and all, follow each other to a watery grave; and he asserted that he had found this, of all modes of death, pro ductive of the greatest mental agony—de claring that he himself would rather be hung than compelled to "walk the plank." Tlie skull of Tardy was long in possession of my uncle, Dr. Archer, army physician, and at tho time of the pirate's execution post-aurgaon at Fortress Monroe. Con nected with the skull, he would relate a curious incident, which always inspired us children with great horror and disgust. The bodies of the pirates were, by order of government, to be left hanging in chains, but my uncle obtained permission to take possession of Tardy's head, as a curious phrenological specimen—the organ of de structivencss, with others corresponding, presenting an unusual development. This head, for the greater facility of clearing the flesh from the skull, he directed one of the hospital assistants to boil down in an old cauldron used for such purposes. The man placed this vessel, containing the head, on the kitchen tire, and being called away directed an invalid soldier to watch it, replying to the latter's inquiry, "Gh, it's venison broth for the officers' ward; so don't let anybody meddle with it." Tlie soldier, however, had a conva lescent's appetite, and as the supposed soup sent forth a most savory odor, he could not resist the temptation to taste of it. It was good soup, he thought, rich, and with a peculiar relishing flavor; so the poor fellow tilled himself a tin-can full, seasoned il, and partook of it with great relish, con gratulating himself upon once in his life feasting upon venison broth, and picking out the floating morsels of meat as a special luxury. Just as he was swallowing the last spoonful the man who had left him in charge returned, and his hoirified exclama tion of—"I'll be hanged if he hasn't been eating Tardy's head !" awoke the unfortu nate culprit to a perception of the truth. He rose, staggering |' rom his seat, and fair ly swooned away with the horror of the discovery. This was followed by a deadly nausea which nothing could alleviate, and after some hours of intense suffering, the name of the poor fellow, which hod just been stricken off the sick list, was entered upon that of the dead ! "Tardy's last vic tim," the soldiers thereafter called him. I ieneral Joseph E. Johnston, the Rebel Massena, is said to be in better health than ever before since the campaign in (jeorgia. He acquits himself loyally, and dues noth ing to discourage the efforts of the Govern ment to traoquilize the country.

Yesterday, aiidllmc We Spent ll — The Ilitnliiii/lon House—West I'oint — Our lie litni.---Rushing al '2:40 speed through a country covered with a luxuriant second growth of liinlicr, tlie iron horse of Ihe York River mail carried us on our way to waril West I'oint. We passed several larije fields of small corn, and a great many patches of sickly-looking oats. At Fish Haul, we saw evidence of thrift in the shape of a farm well cultivated, line growing crops, new huildings and fences ; the land well ditched, which selves the dou ble purpose of conveying off surface water and chills. Knough such settlers as the one here, will "make the land blossom as the rose," and what Virginia ought to lie. On the way, one of our party lost a nice linen hat, and authorizes us to say that if the finder thereof will return it to the JOURNAL office he Will receive the thanks of a "Christian." Upon the right of the road about four or live miles from our des tination, we came into view of a marsh, stretching away into the distance as far as the eye could reach ; it was beautiful to look upon, but contains cjiills enough to supply two a day to each person in ihe country for four thousand years, allowing one hundred and fifty inhabitants to each square acre of land. Armed at our desti nation we disembarked, and wended our way across a marsh where excavation had been made for the foundation of a bridge, in lieu of which we crossed the ditch upon three railroad ties, laid side by side. A short walk brought us to the Huntington House, which is presided over by Mr. K. W. Massey, who is a prince of good fellows, and knows how lo keep a hotel — a sufficient recommendation to the travel* ing public of America. After ridding our selves of some of the dirt and cinders, of which our engine furnished a constant anil unlimited supply, we started out for a stroll around the place. The town consists of about twenty houses scattered about on a dozen different streets. We should never have suspected the town of having but two streets had we not seen a map of the place at the hotel; said map represented thirty eight streets, numbered from one to twenty four, and across the town lettered from A to L ; the length of the streets appeared to vary from about ten yards to three-fourths of a mile. The old liiirying-plaee, wherein repose the ashes of some of Virginia's bravest, is sadly neglected, tin- fences all down, and the ground grown up with weeds. We saw several Virginia pine rooters plying their trade therein. The most desirable looking property in the place, consisting of store and dwelling, newly repaired and wViitewashed, was labelled "For Sale." We did not wonder thereat, for West Point must certainly be a desirable place to emigrateyVota. A real estate agent taking advantage of there being a crowd there, was trying to sell build j ing lots, but met with poor success. lie tiring to the hotel to dinner, wo did ample justice to the viands set before us, which were served up in Massey's liest style. After dinner we took a stroll around the hotel grounds which are ample and splen didly shaded—one portion of which was occupied by a platform upon which the younger and some of the older members of the party were tripping the light fantastic toe to tne music of a French fiddle and two vio lins. We noticed one of our party had his lady at his left as they took their place in a cotil lon. We didn't stay to see how he man aged to get through the figures. In the garden connected with the establishment, were an abundance of fruit and vegetables. On the whole every thing connected with the Huntington House, seemed to be in a pros perous condition. At 8 o'clock, we started lor the depot, when a smart shower catch ing us on the way there, and some of us without umbrellas, our plumage was some what dampened, but not our ardor. The trip home was enlivened by songs and jokes, and all seemed well pleased with their trip to West Point. The ladies of the party complained of the want of lights on the train, there lieing but one, and that the lamp of the conductor. Evtry pain having its pleasure, a rare opportunity was given the sentimental portion to breathe words of love into willing ears, without having to hide (he blush upon the cheeks. Altogether the day was happily spent, and the entire party returned satisfied with the efforts of Capt. liragg and Mr. Massey, which ren dered the excursion a success. For ourselves, and those connected with our paper, we have returned our thanks for courtesies shown us, in a series of resolu tions, which we publish elsewhere. A Row al the Monumental Hotel. —A few evenings since, a gentleman occupy ing room No. lU, at the Monumental Hotel, hearing that a gentleman from Petersburg was in the city, who had given him cause of offence, sent tlie Petersburg gentleman word that he desired to see him at his room, for the pur pose of settling their diliiculty. 'I'he gentleman from Petersburg, not hav ing the fear of the Monumental boarder before hint, accommodated himself lo his wishes, by repairing immediately to the room as requested. Words soon led to quarrels, wherejipon Monumental determined to close the matter by shooting Petersburg. Drawing a pistol he attempted to carry into execution his design, when it was ascertained that I'eters tltt didn't .scare" wotf a cuss," and instead fleeing the wrath to come, snatched the tol, and after throwing it out the window, proceeded to administer to Monumental a severe castigation. Muscle was brought into requisition, and by its use and that of a pitcher, Monumental was soon put hors du-combat. Petersburg quietly left the room, leaving his would-be slayer in the hands of-a sui-geon, who properly dressed his wounds. As the gentlemen are first class, we are not satisfied that the matter will rest here. Petersburg has returned home, leaving Monumental a sorer, sadder and wiser man. Pic-Xic. — A large number of people, both white and colored, assembled yester day in the grove on the lands of W. J. Waldrop, in Henrico, for the purpose of having a pic-nic. A liberal supply of eata bles was prepared, at the expense of the township anil county officers of Henrico. The meeting was addressed by H. A. At kinson, Commonwealth's Attorney for Henrico ; Mr. Kennedy Kobinson, Maj. S. A. Anable, of Henrico, and L, N. Peter son, ol this city.- The best of feeling pre vailed, and all seemed happier and better citizens lor liaving in a small way cele brated the Fourth of July. An Incident u-il/i n Moral.—A few days ago, in company with n friend from a dis tant city, who desired to see Richmond and such objects of interest as could he visited during the limits of an after dinner ramble, we wai.':cd through Hollywood Cemetery, wlieiT 1 mid leafy shade or blooming parterre, lies all that is mortal of grave and gay, old and young, strong and weak, brave and timid—their resting places marked by "storied urn, or animated bust," the carefully planted and affectionately tended shrub or flower, or the boquet of gathered blossoms, whose fading beauties speak more plainly than words, the same inevi table doom awaits thee, wav-faivr, that has overtaken the slumberer beneath, and is rapidly transforming out' lovely tints and fragrance into blackness and decay. We examined with interest the "Cud's Acre," in the centre of which stands the Mo niorialjpyramid marking "the bivouac of Ihe dead" who fell in their effort to uphold the "Lost Cause." Whatever we may think of the act, they were brave, and we will concede, conscientious. May the turf lie green that covers their narrow cells, and the time not far distant when the only evidence of the late struggle will be such carefully kept but '''silent camps." Attracted by the panoramic and remark ably beautiful view from flic bluff which overlooks the canal, we left the cemetery by the foot-path wickel, and wended our way along the upper bank of the canal, crossing that LsVßXan water course at the Tredegar works bridge. Two barges were discharging cai-goes of iron at the works, for smelting purposes, and the diameter of these cargoes struck as most forcibly in connection wilh the scenes we had just left, and especially the Memorial cemetery. Round shot and shell, condemned as ordnance stores, were being thrown into the Trediigar Works ; not pro pelled by "villainous saltpetre," but by the muscles of freemen; not for the pur pose of destruction, hut of reconstruction. I'he words of the inspired prophet seemed to be written upon every ball and shell as il rolled over the gunwale on ils way to the melting furnace: "They shall beat their swonls into ploughshares, and their spears into priming hooks ; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." How appropriate Would be the lines of the Roman poet, cast as a motto upon the appliances of peace, manufactured from theso useless missiles of war: "Pax me CtHa ilucis placiilos enrracit. m ttsus i Ayri co/ie nunc sum; militis anlefui,'' which may be rendered: "Sweet peace has transformed me ; I was once the properly of a soldier, and am now the property* of the husband man." As the Tredegar works played so important a part in furnishing munitions of war, and is now equally, anil more happily, active in furnishing implements of peace, the inscription of the above quoted lines over the entrance gate would be pertinent and appropriate. Truly "peace hath her victories not less renowned than war;'' and her victories bring happiness, prosperity, blessings to all: while grim visaged war brings laurels, perhaps, but laurels stained with blood; and if flowers are planted in its path, as in the Memorial cemetery, they are planted in anguish, and watered with tlie tears of gen tle pity or wild despair. Fiyhts ai Ilattorf's. —We regret to learn that a number of disgraceful fights occurred yesterday evening al llaltorf's (iarden, thereby marring the pleasures of the pic nic given by the Iron Moulders' Associa tion. Whiskey and outside roughs are said to have been the original cause of the dis turbances. A number of noses were J smashed and eyes bunged. 'I'he police! were powerless to quell the row. We re gret that such pleasures are so frequently disturbed; but it is just as we have said, that it is impossible tor Americans or Irish to get together and drink whiskey without kicking up a row. dive us now and always, the good-humored and good-na tured Germans, who can enjoy in a rational manner such festivities, but their good na ture must never be mistaken for want of pluck, as they have shown themselves in war the best lighters of the age. They are a sensible people; when they go for fun, they get it, as clever people should do. A Meeting nut Political. — Resolutions of Thanks.—At a meeting of the employees of the Daily Statk Journal, held at the office, on the morning of the Mil day of July- On motion, E. C. I 'rump, Esq., wus called to the ('hair, and Edwin O. Bolls, appointed Secretary, The following preamble and resolutions were read and unanimously adopted: Whereas, Win. N. Jtragir, Esq., Supi. York River Railroad, generously extended us ihe free dom of his road, on yesterday, lo West Point and relui'ii, and whereas A. W. Massey, Esq., Propri etor ol' tlie Huntington House, at West Point, wilh marked liberality, extended us the courtesies of his. hotel : Therefore, Kesolved, That we hereby tender our grateful acknowledgements to them for their kindness ami politeness, an.l that we recommend to the travel. ling public, the York River route, and its connec tion, as tl pleasant and desirable one, and the HnuiiiiKioiiHou.se, al. West Point, as a delightful retreat from ihe heats of summer. Resolved, That we will ever hold ill grateful remembrance the courtesies of these gentlemen, and recommend litem to the kind consideration of Ihe fraternily. Man Drowned. —Yesterday morning, al an early hour, the body of Patrick O'Hara, an employee of the New York and Rich mond Granite Company, was found floating in the canal above the three-mile locks, lie was employed by the company .as a quarry man at their quarry near where his body was found, and it is supposed that he was drowned while crossing the canal. His fellow-workmen state that on Monday he was at work, but complained of being sick, and they think he attenqited to cross the canal in a can.ie, on his way home, and hy some means fell out, as the canoe was found near the place where the body was dis covered. The deceased whs about twenty four years of age, was a native of Ireland, and had been in the United States some six or seven years.and si \ months in Richmond. He leaves a wife an'l one child. Sent to Jail. —Yesterday morning Lillie Bennett and llettie Anderson, women of bad repute, were brought up before the police court on a charge of stealing a gold watch and $26 in currency from Joseph Roberts. After hearing all the testimony the Police Justice decided that the charge so far as Lillie Bennett was concerned had not been sustained ; but that it had in the case of Bettie Anderson. He therefore sentenced her to jail for three months. Lizzie Griffin alias Hardeman, who was charged with receiving the watch, knowing it to have been stolen, was also adjudged guilty, and sent to keep Bettie Anderson company for the same length of time. Mrlroloyical. —Mr. 0. C. Vincent, of this city, has contracted with the President of the Smithsonian Institute at Washington to take observations and forward meteorologi cal reports to the Institute front this city. Hialtli/ Ini/iorttiut Meetinij. -We are au thorized to slate, that having been requested by a majority of members of the Republican Executive Committee of the State Central Committee of Virginia, Samuel I. Mmldox, Esq., Secretary of the latter, has issued :i call, convening the members of the Execu tive Committee, on the'2oth net., at the United States Courl-rnoin, in this city. Capt. Maddox will notify the different members of the State Central Committee, and request that they nicet in this city on the 'JNt, thus anticipating the action of the Executive Committee which will call a meeting of the State Central Committee. The object of the call is to confer as to the policy to be adopted by the Republican patty of the Slate, in the next fall cam paign. Other matters of interest will be discussed at the same time. Steamer for tit,; years ago, tobacco raised in thecountry surround ing Milford, now a station on the Richmond and Potomac Railroad, was shipped ly small boats down the Maltaponi river to Dunkirk and front thence direct lo Europe, Railroad and other facilities having stopped this means of shipment, the country lying along the upper .Mnttapniii has been, for years, deprived of necessary facilities for shipping the various supplies raised along ils banks. Recently, Cast, Myers, of King and Queen, associated with himself a num ber of gentlemen who propose building a steamer to ply this river as high up as Dunkirk, and even further if practicable, for the accommodation of persons living on it, and to offer cheap transportation for the large quantity of truck raised in that seclion. They propose building a steamer to cost $20,000, and have succeeded already in raising near that amount. So much stock has been subscribed as to render the enter prise a success. This effort will be bailed with delight by those living on Ihe river, who complain at present of the high rates of freight and their unaecessibility to market. We wish the gentlemen success in this and any similar efforts to build up tho waste places of the State. Effects of Yesterday. —Numerous head aches, sore feet, mashed noses, bunged eyes, and red-hot coppers, are some of the j results of the Ith of July, visible in our city this morning. Chose who remained at home and worked, complain of the heat of yesterday, while those who avoided it, by rusticating, many of them complain of the heat to-day, inter nal and infernal, rendered so by bad ruin. \V c have none of these sort of complaints to make ourselves being a friend of temper ance, as all can testily who saw us yester day. Our pleasures consisted in the recol lection that we were an American citizen and a Virginian, with the ability and will to lay aside all sectional feelings, thereby cele brating heartily the day upon which was bom to this country, American Independ ence. Long may she wave, and the sacred day nevermore marred by sectional strive. May the day live always green in the memory of the people, and may the time soon cinne when these of our own section can heartily unite in ils celebration as they did before the late unhappy strife. heft Hehiw/.— 'Sot remembering that like time and tide, railroads wait for no man, a gentleman accompanying some laidics on the excursion train to West Point, and who is free from the vice of taking too much, yesterday, after securing seals ibr his ladies, on the train to return to Richmond, stepped aside, we presume, to drink the health of mine host of the Huntington, when, to his astonishment, and without due notice, the train moved orf, leaving him behind. He vainly at tempted to catch up, for as he ran fast, the train ran faster, lie ceased the race after a time, leaving the ladies to the care of others oi' the party, and himself to blow over being left. A pair of black eyes, which proposed to remain at the Point, may hate been the cause of the event; if so, the gentleman played his cards with success. Henrico County Court. —In this court to day, the counsel for White, who was on Saturday tried and his punishment ascer tained to be eight months in the State's prison, moved for a new trial. This mo tion was overruled, They then moved to suspend judgment on the ground that there was no State's prison in this State. The judge here slated that he would hold this motion under advisement for a few days, and remanded the prisoner back to jail. The case of Joseph Kersey was then called up for trial, but owing to the absence of important witnesses lor tlie defence, was continued until the next term. 'I'he judge said that ho would admit Kersey to bail in the sum of s2,l)IIO. The court then ad journed until to-morrow at 11 o'clock. A muijitijit ■< ut sight was presented the beholder after the shower last evening. The whole canopy of the western heavens were lit up with gorgeous clouds of gold and purple, intermixed with the most ex quisite sky of azuline blue, whilst far away, stretching from the east to the north west, was a splendid rainbow. The scene lasted about half an hour, and was viewed with admiration by hundreds of observant citizens. It was the sky called "Italian,?' of which poets sin;; and painters vainly attempt to imitate. Home Kitterpri.ie.- -Franklin Davis it Co., nurserymen of this city, have recently re ceived and Ailed an order for more than live thousand dollars' worth of fruit trees from one party at the North. This speaks well for our country, and_looks cheering for the future success aud prosperity of Southern enterprises, where they are properly man aged. This enterprising firm realized the handsome sum of fifteen thousand dollars from the sale of strawberries alone last Mason. Sin-cess, we say, lo all such laud able efforts. On a ri.til to Hollywood Cemetery, yes terday, we noticed in the rear of a private residence on Pine street, a United Stales flag flying in the breeze. The house is oc cupied by that social, hospitable, genial gentleman, Mr. ('barley Thompson. We made for him, and beam the Declaration of Independence delivered in fine style by one our city officials, The " day we celebrate" \\a; partaken of by a select lew. 11 pon Ihe whole, Charley is all right upon the goose question. Broke Her Ann. —A colored woman by the name of Sarah Haines, living on Fif teenth street, broke her left arm just above the elbow on Sunday night while scuttling with a friend. 111.
