NEW BL00HFIELD, TENN'A. Tuesday, June 7, 1S70. Last wekk the Ilouao by a voto of 1 1.5 yeas to 78 nays, reduced the Income Taxf'roin five to thrco per cent, and by a voto of 138 to 52 increased the exemption to $2000, refusing, however, to abolish it altogether by 123 to 50. The list of killed and wounded in the Fenian raid foots up eleven killed, seven teen wounded. Ought not the loaders of this enter prise bo held legally responsible for the .-iiurder of these men ? If not legally liable they aro certainly morally responsible for this loss of life. A case just brought before the courts of New Jersey, shows how the in uuranco business is sometimes carried on. The Mariner's Insurance Company of Jersey City, after doing a flourishing bu siness for some time, sustained a loss, when it was discovered that the company was not incorporated, but had pur chased for $300 the charter of another company. It was then claimed that the directors of the old company could be made responsible for the loss, but these persons showed that their names had been used ?.s directors in advertisements and cards without their consent. It was also shown that ono Logan, who had oper ated the concern, had effected insuran ces through the use of well-known and responsible names, and before being call ed upon to pay any heavy losses had de camped for parts unknown. Tho books had also been disposed of, so there re mained no evidence to show tho condition of tho compauy, or tho names of the par tics really connected with it as directors. An Infernal Deed. . Tho crimo charged againstja man nam- ful Lanere. a dealer in picture lrames in this city, is one that should give him a pre-eminence in the criminal catalogue ' Jbr diabolical intent. He shipped a box in April last, on tho New Orleans steamer , and secured an insurance on it or one thousand six hundred and fifty dollars, and the box proved to have been pre pared with explosive and inflammable material, and was only prevented lroni burning the ship'by the watchfulness and activity of the captain. In tho box were vessels of alcohol, gasoline and tur- cntine, and- fire was apparently to have been set to these by a chemical that would cxplodo with slight fricti jruand was provided ior by unco shut in a box, who. in gnawing their way out, were to fire Uie train that might have destroyed the ship and all her compauy at sea. Here then, is, if tho charge prove true, a man who deliberately contrives that awful ca lamity, fire, on a ship at sea contrives tho possible frightful death of twenty or thirty persons to secure the small prize of sixteen hundred dollars insurance money. N. Y. Jhrnld. Rather Mysterious. In tearing down the chimney of an old frame house, in New lork, Inst week the skull of a skeleton, grim and ghastly, was suddenly revealed by the tailing awuy (f some plaster. 1 he whole ot tho rub bish and falling plaster was removed as soon as the fears ot the trembling labor ers would permit, and in a short time a lull skeleton was taken out of a placo in which it must have reposed for almost half a century. The police hunted up a colored woman who had been a resident of the room in whicli the skeleton was found, for over twenty-live years. Sho professed entire ignoranco ot its existeuco, and showed by her frightened appearance to bo more Kurprised than tho laborers. feho hau often heard strange noises at night about tho room but had always attributed them to rata and mice. Coroner Keenan will hold an inquest, and may possibly throw some light upou the mysterious caso. Fearful Scene In a Ken York Theater. A frightful scene, more exciting in its details than tho very strongest blood and thunder tragedy that a liowcry audience over witnessed, occurred at the IJowcry Theater, on Saturday, tho 28th ult. Tho performances were drawing to a close, expectation was on the tiptoe to witness the bravo and daring acts of Miss Minnie ells with the l'unia lions. I hat young lady entered upon the stage, made her courtesy to the audience, and immediate went into the cage containing the lions the crowded audience meantime watching the exhibition with breathless interest. Suddenly, while tho young actress was going through the performance with the animals, piercing screams broke the cwe struck sileneo of the theater, and the au dience wcro horrified at the sight of a huge lion seizing tho young lady by the throat and lacerating her in such a fright ful manner that tho blood poured in streams upon her dress. 1 he actors and attendants upon the stage rushed forward and struck at the enraged brute, and succeeded in causing him to relinquish his hold upon Miss ells who was dragged from the cage in a fainting condition. She was carried home by her parents and received prompt surgical attendance, i he scene among the audience baffles description. Sever al women fainted, and men shouted in ony at witnessing a danger which they were powerless to prevent, information of the event was brought to the Franklin street police-station, and Captain Kenne dy, ot the Sixth precinct, with a large i'orce of police was promptly on hand, and succeeded in restoring order, so that the theater was cleared without further accident. A Singular Rubbery. Joseph Yt. Isaacs.a diamond merchant rcsidin" at 57 Kast thirteenth street N. Y. was called upon on Thursday last by a tall young man, of dark complexion who seemed to be an Italian, representing that ho had somo diamonds to sell, and requested Mr. Isaacs to call upon him at his room, io. 4U St. .Nicholas Hotel Uroadway. Mr. Isaacs called upor the stranger at the time appointed, and found him at the number and placo mentioned at the St Nicholas. After a few minutes conversation they were joined by another stranger, who with Mr. Isaacs supposed customer, seized and gagged him, and stuffed a towel saturated with chloroform into his mouth and1 around his nose. Isaacs at once became uncouscious, and tho two strangers 'robbed him of $200 in legal tender notes, $1000 in promissory notes a large diamond ring with rubies, worn upon his litile finger, worth $125. Mr. Isaacs, after returning , to consciousness, screamed at tho top of his voice and made all sorts of noise, which soon brought him assistance. After beins freed from the fetters and relating his story, search was iinmedi iifoly made for the strangers, but the birds had fled with their booty. At the instance of the proprietor of the hotel Isaacs was brought to headquarters and the case laid before Superintendent Jour- dan, who detailed two expert detectives to work up the matter. A Church Row. There was a conflict of an unseemly character, in Zion Church, (colored), cor ner ot lilecker and V . leiitu street, N. Y., last week, Uev Wm. V. liutler, the pastor, is not liked by some ot tho con grcgation, and they considered it necces- sary to have two policemen with him when ho entered the church. They found another minister had taken his place in the pulpit, but they soon ousted him. Mr. Butler, however, was not even then, through his troubles. When ho at tempted to speak, tho gas was extin guished and he was forcibly removed. Tho whole church was a scene of uproar and confusion ; a meleo ensued, and sev eral blows were struck. Captain (Irccr, of the ninth Precinct and a plattoon of police, soou put an end to the fracas by difpersing the congregation aud arresting two of the ringleaders. At Wheeling W. Va., on Wednesday of last week, while a daughter of the jailor and hr assistant were taking break fast to tho prisoners in tho county jail, they wero forced into cells and locked up, by means of falso keys, and twelve prisoners succeoded in opening the hall door, and, quietly-locking up tho jailor's family in cells, walked out into tho street in broad daylight aud' escaped. Four havo been recaptured. A prisoner, in dicted for murder, reflect to enter into the conspiracy, and gave tho alarm upon tho escape of his companions. Information for Justices and Constables. From tho following extracts of a decis ion by Judge Graham in a suit to deeido what disposition should bo mado of funds arising from sale on Execution, Justices of tho Peace and Constables may find informa tion of some valuo to them : "Wcbelievo the general understanding and pract ico of Justices has been to require tho Constables to return tho execution in twenty days from its date, and if returned with n levy, an alias execution is isued up on which the goods levied on are sold. I ins wo consider erroneous and un-au-thorized by tho act of Assembly. 1 ho l;ith Section ot tho act referred to re quires the Justice to issue an execution to the constable, commanding him to levy the debt, and within twenty days next follow ing t !io levy, expose the goods levicd.tosale. This is the evident meaning of the language used, and it is the only construction consis tent with tho lrith sec. winch makes the levy a lien for twenty days after it is made. and no longer. 1 he Constable has twenty days from the date of the execution to make his levy and the lien of tho levy continues for twenty days alter it is made, So long as this lien continues, ho may sell, but not afterwards. He may levy on the 20th day, and sell on tho fortieth, twenty days after tho lev3', and tho only provisiou mado for issuing an alias execution, is when tho lien of tho levy has expired before sale. Then an alias may issue. The iirst writ in functus officio, and the proceeding on the alias is de novo, by levy, .Vc, as on the hrst execution. Thus it will be seen that the general practice of Justices, is not legal, and Con stables may take forty days from date of execution for levy and sale, and an alias Execution need only bo issued when tho salo does not take placo within twenty days after the first levy has been made. A Thief Treed by a Dog. A thief came to grief under peculiar circumstances at Fort Wayne, the other day. Two drovers went to sleep in a caboose car at that place, having hung up in the car a carpet sack containing $5,000. A fellow who saw it, managed to reach in and take the bag, and not content with one, went through a trap door for another further off. A bull dog, however, seized him in transitu from the rearward, and one 'of the drovers waking up, saw the situation, drew a big knife and swore he would cut the thief's head off if he didn't tell where the other sack was. Of course, the thief told, and, despite his pleadings, was left in charge of tho dog until tho property was secured. He was then released, a sadder man, and minus a quart of blood.
