An Olden Time Marriaoe in Henrico.—ln looking to-day over the old records of Henrico county court we en countered the marriage bond of an ancient couple which .together with the endorsement of Major Adam Craig, an old Revolutionary officer, who was first clerk of the court, may throw some light on the matter-of-fact way they used to conduct business in the olden time. Tin. following are the papers alluded lo : "I do certify that Miss Susannah Nelson is above the age of twenty-one years, and ia a resident of the city of Richmond. Given under my hand ami seal this "9th August, 1795. Teste: James Moore, seal. James Jones, Royal Short. "Marriage bond between Charles John son and Susannah Nelson, dated 29th Au gust, 1790, is signed by Teste: Charles Johnson, seal. James Moore, seal. Wilson Allen, James Blaorow, "Endorsed, Charles Johnson's bond for marriage license 29th August, 1790; no fee paid, and trusted in consequence of the man's declaring himself obliged to marry the girl under a forfeiture of liis old shirt, and rather than he should incur the penal ty, as he appeared and swore ho was not worth the amount of the fee, agreed to depend on his honor which lie pledged, but where he i.-t now I know not. "Adam Oraio, Clerk." The Man Killed on the Richmond Fredericksburo and Potomac Railroad Identified. —The man that was killed by the ongine of the mail train on lhe Richmond, Fredericksburg and Po tomac railroad yesterday morning, was identified to-day at the moigue by the brother of the deceased as that of Adolph Frederick Shultz, who resided on Oregon Hill, near tho penitentiary. Deceased was a native of Prussia, and had been iv this country seventeen years. He was in the sixty-first year of his age, and leaves a family. His Irade wan that of a wheel wright, but he had not worked at it for some time, we presume on account of bis t.i-'t". On the morning of the accident he left home for the purpose of goiug into the country after grapes, and as he was deaf ho did not hear the whistle of the engine until it was very near bhn, nnd then, in stead of getting oft' at once, ran a little distance and stepped to one side of the track, when he was struck by Ihe bumper and killed. The engineer blew tho whistle repeatedly as soon as he saw him and put down brakes, but as the train was going at the rate of about thirty-five miles an hour he did not succeed in stopping it within one hundred and fifty yards of tho point at which the man was struck. A Few Words to Keepers op Prisons. —"The jailor may use such force as is necessary to enforce obedience to his lawful commands, but he has no right at his pleasuro to inflict stripes upon prison ers for offences 'past.' " We copy the above from the card or George 1). Wise, esq., commonwealth's attorney of this city, published in the Richmond Dispatch of this morning. The publication of this opinion was caused by statements made with reference to the late whipping of a prisoner in the city jail. We presume the opinion of tho com monwealth's attorney of Richmond will be accepted as correct, and that hereafter persons in confinement will not be subjected to such cruel and barbarous treatment. We call the especial attention of Superintendent Strothcr, of the penitentiary, to his opinion, and we hope , that ho will take due notice thereof and hereafter govern himself accordingly. N. B.—We would like to enquiro if the three persons convicted of a violation of the state laws, by whipping Nelson, and who were convicted and sentenced to jail, are to the retained in oflice. We believe the Con ■ si rva lives have higher regard for themselves . than to insist upon retaining theso jail i birds in positions of trust. Fined.—James W. Wiley, charged with ; assaulting and striking Wm. Speed with a 1 shovel, and Wm. Speed, charged with as ' saulting and striking James \v. Wiley with J a brick, were both fined $10 each by Jus ' tice White to-day at the police court. The j. aggressor Speed wits let ot! without the payment of liis fine, as his counsel Samuel ; M. Page, esq., didn't want him fined, aud ' singular to l-elate Wiley didn't want him 3 lined, and Wiley's_cmnsel, A. Moise, esq., ' didn't want him fined. Just so. I Masonic—Richmond Commandery _> No. 2, Knights Templar, have been mc c vited by their fratcrs ol Philadelphia to s visit that city on the occasion of the dedi i. catiou of the .new grand asylum in tlie i) palace-like Masonic temple there, just ti completed. A meeting will be held on Monday night to consider the invitation. Wants to Find His Mother.- Adam Webb, otherwise Adam Sisson, o the Pacific Hotel, St. Joseph, Buchanat county, Missouri, wants to find his mother Ho says : "Information is wanted by me, Adam Sis son, • mulatto-ion'of George Sisson, white regarding the whereabouts of my mother Faulty Webb, a blight mulato, aged abou fifty or fifty-five years, who lormcrh lived in Virginia, on the Rappahannock ■ river, opposite the light-house, and was owned by a Mr. Saunders ; she was sole to a slavo trader named Dix, taken tc Richmond, Va., and again sold and taker to Alabama about twenty-four years ago. My sister, Fanny Elizabeth Webb, and my brother, Alexander Webb, wenl with my mother. They were both brighl mulatto color. I was taken from my mother about twenty-nine years ago, and taken to Clinton ' county, Missouri, by James Newby and Samual Stonehan." __ 1 More Lioht Needed.—ln one of the morning papers appears a card from Cap tain George D. Wise, prosecuting attorney of the state in the hustings court of this city, in explanation of one previously pub lished by W". C. Wilkinson, superintend ent of the chain-gang, relative to his trial and conviction before the hustings court on the charge of an unlawful assault on one of the men under his charge, in which he says : " Another officer of high standing in this city made statements to me in con nection with the whipping of Nelson which have not been made public." What the people want to know is what was it that other " oflicer of high stand ing " knew about the whipping that did not come out in evidence before the court. They aro curious to know all tho details of that nefarious proceeding. Accident.—This afternoon a two muled coal cart in dumping coal at the coal-yard of Pilchcr, corner of Eighth •nd Main streets, dumped the cart and one mule down an embankment about twenty feet deep. The single-tree to which the lead mule was attached broke and saved him from going over. After the cart which fell on the mule was turned over, lie got up and dusted. Fire.—The alarm, of fire between 2 and 3 o'clock this evening was caused by the "burning of a small frame house, owned by the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac railroad company, about a mile beyond the cily limits, and occu pied by W. H. Frost, an employee of the company. Furniture saved with difficulty. Loss, $700. No insurance; cause, accident. Political Speaking To-Night.— Hon. C. P.

II (til 11,1 _~,-. llt'llllClllllMl. ,' CHICAGO, September 1-.—The Intel .' Ocan yesterday morning published an in tervicw with General .1. 11. Sweet, deput; commissioner of internal revenue, and D W. Munn, supervisor of internal rovenu I for Illinois, who havo been investigatm. the recent defalcation of Collector Harper of tho Eighth district, and who are now ii this city to look into Harper's alleged grail | speculations. . It appears from the investigation tha , there aro implicated in Harper's fraud hi deputy, Smith, and three distillers, Davit I L. Thompson, Henry P. Westerman, nm . John L. Smith, representing the Pckii distillery company, and John I). Mclntyre a Peoria distiller. It seems that in tin fall of 1871 the bonds of these Pekin (_■* ' tillers mysteriously disappeared and could not be found. It is now believed by tho odicials vho 1 aro conducting the examinalian that bond. amounting to $300,000 were stolen by J Harper and Deputy Smith to facilitate frauds that were then or about to be com mitted on the government. The distillers, 1 their bonds having disappeared and thcii \ bondsmen apparently secured, did not hes itate at collusion with Harper, at.d when the latter, to cover his deficiencies, alleged lhat ihe Pckin distillers were in arrears, they admitted the (ruth of his statements and the correctness of the amount said to be owing by them, which was given" the examining ottlcer by Harper. Meantime, however, Colonel Bridges, of this city, western agent of the internal revenue bureau, who was investigating the case of the missing bonds, found the list ol bondsmen's names, which had not been destroyed, and commenced suit against them, which suit is now pending. A prom inent firm of lawyers at Springfield, 111., are severely blamed by the government officials for their course in the matter, as it is said they had knowledge of Harper's de falcation a week ago. It is known that Harper is largely engaged in grain specula tions here, and the official*- above named are here to investigate them. _I__Ol Iti A _______ . ill Trouble.

Still later he procured a pistol aud threatened to shoot Major Gil son, when the police took him to the cala boose.

It now ' appears that tho Carolina company bad . met with heavy losses, and that its sol . vency was seriously doubted. Mr. . Davis, who was elected to tho presidency j. merely on account of his supposed popu larity in the south and the prestige of his 1 name, proved a burden too heavy for tho ' company lo carry, and the directors in order to protect the interests of the policy ! holders and save tho corporation from ' litter ruin, determined to get rid of him. ' Without consulting the president and while he was absent from Memphis, they voted _ him out of oflice and transferred the . business of the concern to another com pany. The priests have gotten up another "mi racle in France, which tho Avenir d'Auch tolls about. They say lhat iti a meadow above the oratory at London, near Audi, the Virgin appeared lo a little girl. Soma pious people of the neigliboihood gave to the child a paper with this inquiry : " Cher dame, que demandez vans ."— Dear lady, what do you a.k ? The child nailed the paper upon a board and placed it at the spot where she believed that she had seen the white lady. Tho following day she found a paper, " written with the Virgin's own band," , and being in the following words : "7 .ie-, , fete penitance, Aueh cera deb nil dans pen ■de tanls'' —Pray and feast. Aueh will ■ soon bo destroyed. Very bad French. The erudition of the Virgin in the (Hatter of French would certainly have at once been called in question. An American would have had tho thing in raised letters on a lien's egg. Not a Kiss.—Green 1 . Thomas, col ored man, appeared on the wrong side of j the bar in the special sessions yesterday. Ellen Myers accused him of forcibly kiss i ing her, but his ________ face, his white tie, and "his clerical alapacii coat . silently refuted the charge, "lam a car penter by trade," he .said, iv answer to a . question as to bis occupation, "and a sacred musician by profession. 1 am engaged in giving concerts in the various colored churches in and near New York." He protested that he could not olt'end a woman if he tried, and introduced Mary Jonas, bis prima donna, and Sarah Hutchison, his alto, to prove his uniform gentlemanly de meanor. There was a buz/, of satisfaction in the corner behind the prisoner's pen when Mr. Thomas was discharged, for in that corner the colored witnesses and spec tators are huddled by themselves.—_V. V. Sun, Gth. General 1). 11. Hill having published a statement to the effect that numerous citizens of different sections of the north have written him an approval of all he has said in his controversy with Senator Brownlow, the vigorous old paison is out in yet another letter, in which he tells Hill that, little as he esteems him, he thinks him better than these "Northern sneaks and doughfaces," and adds that if he "owed the devil a debt of one dozen of the meanest men in the United States, and wanted a premium on the payment of il, , he would turn over to his _____ majesty twolvcof these northern men." The blunt old senator is not often very choice in his epithets, but commonly lie leaves little op portunity for dispute as to his exact mean ing. •> —The Graphic's balloon is still anchored to tho solid earth, and will probably never ', float on the "easterly" current of lhe upper air. Professor Wise has already begun his whining, and is explaining to the reporters how ho was swindled by tho Graphic people and how his advice was persistently disregarded. i iii wA-'r*i.
