Butler' of Tcnneseo, whose presence was ardently desired last summer to an swer to a charge of defrauding soldiers' widows out of their pensions may now bo found in tho National Hou.sc of Repre sentatives. Joseph II. Rainey, who was sworn in on Wednesday last, as representative from South Carolina in Whitimore's place, is the first colored man who has held such a position in thisconutry. He took his scat on tho Republican side in tho extreme southwest corner of the hall. He is a bright mulatto, with straight hair and bushy side whiskers. The order of tho Indiana Supreme Court, granting a new trial to the woman, Mrs. Nancy 15. Clem, has revived tho discussion of tho facta connected with the crime for which she was convicted. Jacob Young, a prominent business man of Indiauapolis, was found dead in tho bed of a creek near a picnic ground, some short distanco from Indianapolis, with the charred remains of his wife ly ing close beside him. It was known that ' he had borrowed a largo sum of money .from.'an Indianapolis banker on tho day the body was found, and no money hav ing been discovered iu tho clothing, it was considered fair to presume that a double murder had been perpetrated. Circumstantial evidenco pointed very strongly toward Mrs. Clem, and on this she was convicted and sentenced to death. aT" During the recent flood in Vir ginia, a man in tho track of the devour ing flood had already been driven from the lower stories, and, with his family, ' had taken refuge up stairs-, when a party of his neighbors cauio to his rescue. liy his side were his wife and seven children and a safe in which ho had the earnings ' of years. The man would not leave the ' house without tho safo ; tho woman re fused to leave without her husband, and thero they remained watching tho safo ; tho waters roso higher and higher; with hut a moment's warning tho house was ' imrried from its foundations, and in a few minutes man, woman, aud seven children lay silently at the bottom of tho river. PoF Rev. C. G. Ames preaches at San Jose, Cal., but being absent on furlough for hcukh, Mrs. Ames fills the pulpit very acceptably in his absence. On ono recent Sabbath she got up in tho morn ing and prepared breakfast, washed nnd dressed her baby, dressed her little daugh ter for Sunday Kehool, put baby to sleep, nd fat down and reviewed her scraion before it was time to take tho cars for . cliureh,when she went to tho place of wor ship and preached to tho entire satisfac tion of o large and critical audience. The proprietors of a private detective agency in Chicago have been arrested and charged with various criminal offen ces. It is alleged against them that they had thieves in their employ, whoso opera tions they planned and superintended, and then negotiated with tho owners for the return of the property which had been stolen under their own direction; also, that occasionlly they committed bur glary on their own account for the purpose of turning an honest penny by selling their services to ferret out the villains. They even stole dogs for the sake of getting a reward for their return. The private de tective busiucss needs regulating; for while there are some shrewd and trust worthy men engaged in it, many of those who embark in the occupation obtain their living by exacting blackmail, and by acting as agents for thieves in the disposal of stolen property. A new instrument for the torture of horses has been detected in New York through the vigilance of Mr. Bcrgh, the " animaltarian." It is ingeniously made us follows : First, a stiff and solid piece of sole leather made round, of about four inches in width. Into this are fast ened about thirty steel nccdles.projccting one inch from the surface of the leather. The other side is covered with highly japaned leather sewed find ornamented with faucy figures to make them attract ive. This ornament is attaelicd to the bit, with tho sharp needles next to the skin of the horse, and pricks them. W hen a brutal driver desires to show his high-mettled chargers ho pulls up his reins, the needles penetrate the skin, and the animal rears and prances in pain. fisfi" Miss Sarah Jane latlhcws, who resides with her parents, in New York, had been in the habit or getting up in her sleep at all times of night and walk ing about the premises. At one time she was mistaken for a burglar, and at anoth er time for a ghost. At 1 o'clock on tho morning of the 10th inst.,her perambulations nearly cost her her life. She left her bod, and her father was attracted by her screams. Hastening to her room he found her hanging out of the window head down ward, and with her feet clasped by the "window sash, which had providentially fallen in time to save her life. Officer Beacon, of the Second precinct, was also attracted by the screams of the young lady, and hastened to the assis tance of her father, and they succeeded in pulling her back iu the room. She was of course, very much mortified to be caught in such a shocking position. She was only slightly injured being bruised about tho ankles by the window falling upon her. A Dark Mystery in Pittsburg. About the middle of November, Officer llager was communicated with by a gen tleman of McKeesport, who advised him that his daughter had eloped from her homo early tho proceeding day ; that no trace could be had as to her whereabout and expressing his belief that she had probably fled in the company of a cousin of hers of Armstrong county, who had for some time boen paying her attention which had not been countcnanco by the family, and who, it was believed, had been keeping up a clandestine correspond ence. The father is a well-to-do citizen of McKeesport aud a contractor. On the occasion in question, ho had been away from homo for a day attending to some business. On his return he learned that his daughter was nowhere to bo found, lie had thought proper to interdict the young lady's intercourse with a first cous in of hers, who lived in Kittanning and worked at carpentering, mainly on the ground of the close relationship of the parties. Officer llager was at once on tho look out to discover tho whereabouts of the girl, but ineffectually. No person an swering to the description given had put in appearance at any of tho public ro sorts. The father and brother of the young lady shortly got down from Mc Keesport, and a consultation was held as to further measures. Finally, the officer was detailed to go up to Kittanning and learn what he could of the parties there. To his surprise he found tho Armstrong county cousin working us usual at his trado in Kittanning, and, apparently, per fectly ignorant of his cousin's elopement. A enrol ul watch was set upon his movo mouts, and Hagar was at length satisfied that tho young fellow had no complicity in his cousin's disappearance. He returned to tho city, and the search was taken up with fresh vigor. Not hav ing eloped to marry her lover, the next question was, what was her object in leaving the parental roof? Tho family relations had nnt ot late been ot the most agreeable character, owing to her openly expressed preference for the Kittanning cousin, but thero had been nothing in the family difference which would justify recourse to a step which tho distressed father and brother now began to regard as a possible solution of the difficulty. That the girl had left her home to lead a life of shame was a theory reluctantly accepted, but one which, under the cir cumstances, had many probabilities to support it. A tour of the houses of pros titution was made under the direction of Officer llager. A couple ot courtezans who had left their homes some time ago to come to the brothels of tho city were known to the detective, and he regarded it as probable that the runaway might havo taken refuge with them. Their residence was ascertained, and a close watch was kept upon the house without result. They were interrogated and expressed entire ignorance in the matter. The search was then ex tended to all places of tho kind, but no trace3 of tho lost one could be found. The father and brother became dispirited and after a week or so spent in tho vain inquiry they returned to McKeesport, leaving orders to have every effort made from time to time that would give any promise of a favorable result. The missing girl is yet in her teens, being only in her seventeenth year. Sl.o was a very attractive person, and could lay claim to considerable beauty, llcr motives and her whereabouts are equally a mystery. We would suggest that the search bo not intermitted, as it is the only hope of saving her to a future prom ising enjoyment of respectability. Philadelphia Correspondence. Philadelphia, Dec. 10, 1870. Mr. Editor It really begins to look as if our city council were brightening up ami trying to place our good old town on an equality with other live cities. They have actually passed a bill establishing a " paid flro department." Tho bill now only wants tho signature of Mayor Fox to become a law. With the passing away of the old organization, we expect not only to got rid of much of the rowdyism that at present disgraces tho city, but to have less fires. Another frequent causo of lire is tho use of poor coal oil, which is lrcqucntly sold not only in tho city, but all over the country, causing great loss of property, and bring ing desolation and mourning to many a family. There is, however, a remedy for tins, aim 1 seo by tno Times last week, that tho remedy is now being offered to tho citizens of your vicinity.
