WHO KICKED McDONALDf It it * fact which every one mud have ob served, that all mysteries which have never been satisfactorily explained, are perpetually recur ring to the minds of men for elucidation. Thus it is tliat the authorship of Junius —a question which has not the remotest bearing upon the present condition of mankind —is made the sub ject of unceasing and curious investigation.— Sir David Brewster, devoted his leisure mo ments during thirty years of his life, to rhis subtle inquiry. Other philosophers, less re nowned than he, have addressed themselves to the vexed question of "Who bit Billy Patter, son ?" and thousands of inquisitive intellects have been turned to the unhappy fate of Milly Macpherson. It will not be thought strange, therefore, that after the lapse of some months the dark and doubtful query which stands at the head oi this article, should have come back again to puzzle and perplex the brains of the Dispatch. McDonald is himself responsible to some extent, for this re-opening of the painful matter connected with his name. We had hoped we were done with McDonald. We had ventured to cherish the belief, that until the meeting of the Legislature, in November next, we should not again be compelled to direct our gaze into that opaque cloud of "historic doubts" which hangs around the affair of the kicking. Truth to say, McDonald had become a bore. We were ourselves, sick, for a time, of perpetual Mc- Donald. Our readers, too, began to tire of his martyrdom and devoted McDonald to the infer nal gods. And when he went back to the bosoms of his confiding constituency, we be lieve no tear was shed over his departure. But M-Donald has "turned up" once more to the public observation, and, like some unhappy goblin, appears "before his time," to affright mankind. It will be recollected that our worthy Chief Magistrate, in the fulness of his gratitude lor McDonald's sufferings in (he be half, appointed him a Visitor of the Uni versity of Virginia. Albeit not remarkable for elegant scholarship, the new appointee went to Charlottesville in the discharge of the duties ol the visitation, where he flourished as a pa tron of letters and a guardian of learning.— On his arrival at home, he felt that something was due to the sagacious Governor who had elevated him to so distinguished a posit on — Accordingly he gets up a meeting of the De mocracy of his county, (of which we have re ceived the proceedings in the Monongalia Mir ror.) and pushes through a set of resolutions, in which it is declared that Gov. Johnson was right in commu'ing the sentence of Jordan Hatcher, and in the reasons he as-igned for it, that an "infuriate mob" assaulted the Gover nor's house, and threatened the lives of its in mates, and that Richmond is a "Free Soil city" of the very worst stamp and character. Vice McDonald! A has Richmond! Now the Dispatch hus nothing to do with politics) and cannot therefore comment upon Jhe endoisement of the Jordan Hatcher busi ness by a Democratic meeting. As a champion of the honor of the city, however, it feels itselt bound to remind McDonald that although the most pushing investigation was made befoie the Grand Jury and the Joint Committee of both Houses, no evidence of anything beyond a merely noisy gathering was elicited, and tha» the ouly "infuriate mob" of which any ac count could be obtained, consisted of op.e sin gle individual, who did, it seems, with Porce and' arms, <being thereto instigated by the devil, agaftist the peatfc and dignity of the Common wealth and the statute in such case made and provided, proceed to kick (violenterpedcm im posuit) the said McOonald, and trestt his per son otherwise wiA disrespect. That this "in- mob" was no joke, we are willing te believe upof'the testimony erf McDonald him self, who made off from it— "Lifr.e one that on a kmesome road, "Doth wnlk in few "and dread, And having one* turned romi ij'Wufcl on, And turns n-e'more his head; Because he taows a trighliul tieud Doth clise behind hiin tread." But admitting the "infuriate mob," it is a non sequitur, of which we should not have suspected even the illogical mind of our fiiend, McDonald, to say that in conse quence Richmond is a Free Soil City.— For what purpose was this mob (if mob there was) gotten up? What was the occasion of it? Every body knows that the excitement in the public mind at that time was awakened by the misjudged clemency of the Governor in rescuing from death a sluve who had mur dered his master. If it had been a Free Soil or anti-Slavery agitation, the "infuriate mob" would, it seems to us, have only waited on his Excellency to thauk him lor his conduct, re serving all its indignation and fury for the Couit < which condemned the negro to die. But we feel ashamed of ourselves for entering into anything like an argument with McDonald. Such exertion of our faculties, we are assur ed, would soon deprive us of reason, and we turn, therefore, to the momentous interrogato ry—"Who kicked MeDouald? " Can not the whole thing now be cleared up ? Where's the individual ? We have an especial reason for wishing to know him. We desire to raise a •tatue to commemorate his achievement.— Surely he deserves the honors of sculpture more than if he had taken a city. As soon as hia identity can be established, we shall open a subscription list at the office of the Dispatch for this fitting testimonial. The artistic effect of such a work might be made very imposing. The great unknown should be represented in marble, in the act of kicking McDonald in na tive brass. Such a design, wrought out with skill, and erected upon the memorable spot where the affair occuired, would, in after times, divide the admiration of the eognoteetUi with the elaborate and magnificent monument of Crawford. OwwspsaliMs sf tfco Dlsyattfe. Pobtskovtb, Va., Aug. 7,1898. Nhmu. Eoitom:—The lm protracted examination of the Rand brothers, charged with robbing a branch of the Bank of Virginia at this place, con* to a close in the exaatWiinf CoOrt before Mayor White. Friday. Th« tes timony offered bv the Commonwealth and ton defence, differ very little from that given in bo fore Mayor Lambert. The cue wm •übm.ited without argument, and the Mayor decided that be should releaae Abraham W. Rand, but could not, conscientiously, set John W.Rand at lib erty, and he was remsnded to jail to await o hearing before the Hustings Court. This deci sion of the Mayor met with the umveranl ap proval of the citizens of this place. The weather is very warm here, and buai ness is slmost at a stand. Tbe U. S. steamer Powhatan is nearly rea dy, and will sail sotiietitne thia month for the ' Mediterranean. Yours, CICERO. Medical College in Savannah.—The Savannah Daily News, of the 4th inst., men tions that at the late term of the Inferior Court of that county, Dr. R D. Arnold, P. M. Rol loch, W. G. Bulloch, C. W. West, H L- Bird, E. H. Martin, J. G. Howard, and J. R. Reid, were incorporated for the purpose of establish ing a Medical School in ihat city, to be known as the Savannah Medical Institution, and that two lots, for the location of the necessary col£ lege buildings had been already purchased by these gentlemen, and thai in a few days con tracts will be entered into for their erection.— Such institutions at the South are calculated to modify materially the reputation and influ ence of Northern scbools, hitherto exerting so great a control in the dependence occasioned by our waul of similar advantages. Ikfamocs Outrage.—From the Staunton Spectator we gather the following particulars of an outrage, (before noticed,) in Augusta oounty: "A negro man, belonging to James A. Fra zier, Esq , near Jennings' Gap, was commit ted to the jail of this county on Monday last, charged with the pei petration of an infamous outrage upon the person ot a respectable young white teumle. We understand that the evi dence against him is conclusive. The unfor tunate woman identifies him distinctly, and states that he had in his possession a pistol and threatened to shoot her if she resisted.— She did resist, but was overcome by the vil lain, who is said to be a very powerful man.— The deed was perpetrated on Sunday, during the absence ol the father and a portion of the family at Church. The young woman had strolled into the orchard for the purpose of ga thering fruit, where she was met and assaulted by the black ruffian. "Theseare the rumored particulars of one of the most daring outrages ever committed in our county." APPOINTMENTS BV THE PRESIDENT. By and with advice and consent of Senate. Humphrey Marshall, of Kentucky, to be Commissioner of the United States of America to China. Benjamin Patteson, of Alabama, to be Mar shal ot the United States for the Northern Dis trict of Alabama,in the pluce of Willis H. Gib son, removed. Howard Millspaugh, to be Assayer of the Blanch iHint at New Orleans. The powder mag zineon Vine st. Hill, Cin cinnati, was attacked a few evenings since, by a mob ol not less than one hundred men, who broke open the door, then entered and carried to a large pond near by, and threw in upward of 700 kegs of powder. The mob then return ed to the building, did considerable damage to the inside, and left. The powder was valued at near §4,000. The b) this mob violence will not be less than one half. Cause—the failure of the authorities to remove the depot, which was believed to be dangerous to the lives of the citizens, The steamboat Diamond, oil her ft&y up trom Niagara Fulls, on the 28th alt., struck a rock in the channel between the head of Navy and Grand Islands, and knocked a hole in her bottom. She settled so fust that there was hardly time to run her oa to Grand Island, when she sank in about seven feet of water. — She hud but few passettgers on board, who were taken r ofl by the steamer Clinton. No less than thirty-six men connected with Barnum's Menagerie were arrested and caged on the other side of the river, night before last, for maltreating a landlord and thrashing a reg iment of his friends. From wnat we have heard, we think the landlord is to blame in attempting to impose upon Barnum's agent. — Detroit Press, Monday. A young man by the name of Lopez, book keeper and confidential clerk in the house of Nttrth &. Scott, shoedeitlers at St. Louis, was arrestedon the 28th ult., for embezzling '800 from his employers. He had been in the habit of frequeting the gambling hells of that city, and this was the result. Treasure in New Jersey.—The Sit Holly Minor tells an almost incredible story that some of Capt. Kidd's treasure hus betn found among the Pines, and that the occupants of that region are in a stale of intense excitement. A man dreamed lor several nights successively that he should find this trensure, the pluce to be indicated by four iron bars projecting from the earth He went and found his dream leal ized. Two hundred and forty thousand dol lars had been discovered up to Monday night, buried in iron chests, and the people have turned out with their pickaxes in further seurch 1 for the treasure. From Gcatamala.—Advices under date of 14th June, received in Boston, in relation to the cochineal crop, state that it has been nearly destroyed. The quautity secured is about 3,0(10 bales against 1 J,OOO lust year; and many vessels have bee obliged to leave the coast without being able to secure a cargo. A subscription to ruise fuuds to aid the poor sufferers by the Henry Clay disaster anil to enable them to commence lawsuits against the proprietors of the Henry Cluv for dumuges, because of loss of baggage, die., has been started in New York city. Going to Europe in a Balloon.—M. Pe tin has written a letter to the Hartford (Conn.) Times, about the construction of a lurge bal loon to cross the Atlantic. This u favorite idea of M. Petin. Robert B. Sherrard, son of J. H. Sherrard, cashier of the Farmers' Bank in Winchester, Va..has been appointed by the Governor oi California, judge of the Court ot Common Pleas for the county of Sutter, at a salary of $3,000 per annum. Mr. Sheirard is only 25 yeareofage. Fatal AJ}ray. Louisville, Ky., Aug. s—An affray occur red on F rid ay last at Lancaster, in this State, between Joseph Murphy and S. F. McKee, in which both were badly wounded, and a necro wouian was killed whilst looking on. Luke Lea, Enq., Commissioner 0 f Indian af fairs, bemtr about to leave the tit v for a few days, the President has appointed Charles E. Miz, Esq., Acting Commissioner until the re turn of Mr. Lea. tST The Secretary of the Treasury return ed to the seat of governuieut nn Tuesday, in improved health. Tn Puwim or Aomuai Gold.— Tbrough the politcMM of tbe A May era of A* ounce* in weight, which bin been imported, from London, by the Mist, for the purpoee of (eating ita character. Aa it wtt expressly writ ten for, (be probability ia, that these are the firat apeeimena of the fold production of Ana tralia which have ever been aeen in thia coun try. It waa received only yeaterday at the Mint, and an aaaay of part of it givea a reault of 966 lOOOths fine, which ia equal to about $20 per os. Thia valuation ia, however, upon the metal after melting, for which an allow ance of two or three percent, muat be made, making the value of the native grains about $19.60; which was the prhe charged in Lon don for this lot. Previous assays, in London, of other parcels, are reported to have given the result of 638 lOOOths fine. On the whole, it is presumable that Ausiralian gold is better than Californian (that is, containing less silver) by six or seven percent, on the average. There is a remarkable similarity in the physical or external character of the gold from the two great mining regions, occurring both in flat spangles and in amorphous lumps. Phil. Ledger, 6th.

Whst shall be done I We should be pleased if ■ simitar course of procedure could be adopted to thst recently pursued in the dominions of our sublime brother, the Sultan of Turkey. The number of dogs became so grest in Constantinople that three thousand wer*- conveyed to a desolate iile in the Eospborus, with provisions sufficicnt|to last them three days. On the fourth dsy, the Imans ascended the minarets, and exhorted them to patience and resignation, when the devoted curs met their fate with becoming propriety. Three thousand would reduce the number in Richmond but slightly. Should this proposition be adopted, we move to amend by inserting ten thousand. Then, after a day of toil, our citizens might "sleep well." It is no use talking about taxes on dogs. The revenue don't compensate for the loss of sleep. Neither do the dog-catchers diminish the evil to any extent. Ii this philanthropic body scoured the city every day in the year, they wouldn't catch dogs enough to make a pyramid. Neither would the Constantinople plan meet the emergency, for in our " Bospborus" there is no island desoiate enough to starve the critters to death. What, then, shall be done i The " Live Giraffe," the spicy animal that rears its lofty head in Raleigh, has declared war upon the canine race in that city. The lollow ing is the last article ia the declaration, which we copy with feelings ot approbation : We really wish we had a dog law here by which every whelp should be killed once a year. The town could thenaleepin peace; which will never be the case aa long aa not only every white man, but eveiy negro, is allowed to own us many doga as he pleases—or let our commissioners pass a new law, that every cur that dare 6 to open his un happy month in the nigh; shall die by the hands of the common hangman, without any benefit of cler gy whatever—then lei their, only half entorce it, as they do our other laws, and hall the grievance will be speedily abated. Trespassing.— Mrs. Pei du, a lady who had se parated from her husband, Mr. Perdu, went to his house a few dayssiuce and endeavored to take from the care of thehousekecpei, Miss Ophe'.ia Smith, Mr. Ptrdu'a little boy. The attempt proved unsuc cessful. On Saturday, Mrs. Perdu was brought before the Mayor on the charge of assaulting Mi ss S. From the evidence, it appearing that the com plainant was nearly as deep in the mud as Mrs. P. was in the mire, the Mayor adjudicated the case by binding Mrs. P. over in the sum of $100 and Miss Smith in the sum of $200 to keep the peace. Whipping.—John Fensom, a few days since, whipped the infant son of R. 1. Wicker, and on Saturday was examined before the Mayor on a charge of assault, and bound over in the sum of 6200 Fined —Samuel Freeman was fined 82 and costs on Saturday, by the for obstructing a street with lumber. Dismissed.—A peace warrant pronounced by Mrs. Elizabeth Smith, ol Oregon Hill, against Jas. Lee and John Hancock, alias Turner, was on Sat urday tried before his Honor aad dismissed, it be ing proved tr.at Mrs. Smith was the assailant.

It the Mayor had heard tht full particulars of Giiffin's case the morning he was brought before him, we do not believe he would have s§nt him to jail.

My son went to Petersburg and purchas ed a buttle of the DYSPEPTIC COMPOUND, with a bos. af your FAMILY or ALTERATIVEiPILLS, and to my great astonishment and satisfaction, I found gr.eat relief in a few days; and in two weuks I was entirely well.
