B. and L. R. U." ' AN ANXIOUS PASSENGER. ORMERLY we could never tell why so . many good tilings were related by steamboat captains and clerks. We un derstand in our early days, and can read ily see how contact with all sorts of people naturally bring awkward positions to those frequently brought in contact with all man ner of characters. Gradually the good things are now falling to tho conductors ; railroad travel having almost brought the steamers to tho banks. And of the con ductors of the Georgia railroads, it seems that those on tho 8. W. R. R., whilo thoy have possibly, the most pleasant general run, sutler moro from outlandish folks, traveling southward t,o see kin-folks, than any class which I have noticed. Some days since, just before the train ran from the car-shed in Macon, I was disturbod while reading a morning paper by the en trance of an old lady, who was slightly deaf and wondrously fussy, and fearfully mado ; in fact, vory fearfully made for an old lady. Chignon, pannier, flounces, and all those indiscribable things which the younger of Fashion's dovoteos so (patiently bear, were hung around ber in profusion rare. After the train moved out the con ductor appeared at the door, and " Tick ets" came reverberating down the aisle. I took advantage of the occasion to find; out fcV what point Mrs. Joiner was bound, and saw the ticket she handed the conductor was "from Macon to Americus," but she requested the conductor to let her know when the train arrived at Stewart's cross ing which is about four miles above , Amer icus. This he of course readily agreed to do. I engaged the old lady in conversation and found that she had been married to Mr. Joinor about two months, that sho was his third wife and he her second hus band. Furthermore, I found that she had some relations in one of the lower counties, and that a visit to thorn was the object of her journey. She seemed anxious to make as good impression on them as possible, as she told me in the innocence of her heart, because they were not as well pleas ed as they should have been at his third marriage, especially as he married rather an old lady. We chatted pleasantly until we reached Jackson about the third sta tion from Macon, I think, when I loft the old lady to her meditations. The next station was Powersvillo, and when sho reached that point sho called the conductor to her and asked if that was Stewart's Crossing. lie replcd that it was not, and told her to give horself no trouble .that ho would tell her when they reached Stowart'B Crossing. In fact, that it was notjt regular station, he would come to hor before they got there and lot her got ready iu time. could see, however, that she was nervous, restless and excited. The train stopped at Fort Valley when she grabbed her reticule, and calling the conductor, wanted to know if that was Stewart's Crossing. - His reply was very brief, but to the point : "It is not, madame." ' " . Off went the train again, and as the whistle Bounded for Marshalville the old lady again grabbod the preoious reticule and called the conductor. "Mr. Conduotor, is this Stewart's Cross ing?" " No ma'am, I will tell you when we get there," was the amused conductors reply. Away we sped, and Marshalville vanish ed only to bring us,aomewhat behind time, however, to Montezuma. The reticule was grabbed again, and again ' the conductor called. In became.. " Is this Stewart's Crossing, r Mr. Con ductor?" . , - " It ia not, if you ploase, madame, I will certainly lot you know when we get there ; so you need not ask me," said the irritated conductor. , , Oglethorpe was passed without the au tbyance, but when Andersonville was soemded the old lady was iu the highest pitch of excitement, and as the conductor was assisting a lady with three babies through the car she grasp bis sleeve with one nervons hand and hor reticule with the other, and asked with all the earnestness of her excited nature : , "Mr. Conductor, ain't this Stewart's crossing ?" . , The usually good-natured publie func tionary was vexed ; you could see it all over his smoothly shaved face, , " No, ma'am, this Is not Stewart's Cross ing. . I have told you I would tell you when we got there, to be quiet and give your self no uneasiness." The old lady was twitching all over with excitemeut as we steamod away and left Andersonville vanishing behind. The con ductor came and took a seat by me and while discoursing on tho comparative mer it of broad guage and nanow-guage rail roads, forgot everything else. . At length be looked put of the window, and immedi ately grabbed the bell-Hue, exclaimed : " Bless rny life, we've passed Stewart's at least a mile." ' Stopping tho train, however, he had the motion reversed, and we ran over a mile back to Stewart's Crossing, when he went to the old lady : ' Stewart's Crossing ma'am." " Are we there ?" she asked. " Yes, ma'am, hurry up and got off as soon as possible ; we are behind time, and had to run back near two miles for you. The old lady seemed wonderfully calmed and said with the greatest simplicity : " I don't want to get off here, I want to go to Americus." V Don't want to get off here ?" thunder ed the conductor ;" what in the thunder did you want us to stop here for ?" ; "I didn't want you to stop here," she re plied meekly. " What did you want to know when we got here for then ?" " Because," simply said tho old girl, "my old man told me when I got to Stewart's Crossing that it would be time to put in my teeth." If you never heard a roar you ought to have been on that train. Amid the fuss the boll-cord had the most violent pulls that it experienced in sometime. The old lady reached Americus, and was met by some kin, who took her off the conductor's hands. 'lie, however, poudered over it well, and I hoard him tell the conductor of the train when they mot that he never would treat a toothless woman with that veneration which they deserved again, especially if sho bad a reticule and wanted to know when be passed a way station. A Mystery Solved. Our readers will remember the fact that a roan named Charles Goodrich' was found murdered last winter in his house at Brook lyn, and that up to last week, the murder er bod not been discovered. It now seems that the murder was committed by a wom an named Kate Stoddart, who was kept by Goodrich, and who has been arrested. She makes the following statement : " She had been living with ' Charlie,' as she called the deceased, and was greatly at tached to him. He wanted to cast her off, but she loved him so much that she could not leave him. She entreated on her knees that he would allow her to remain, but he was firm, and, in fact, brutal in his treat ment of her, and the Thursday before the Friday on which the body was found, was fixed for her to loave him, he threatening her with all sorts of things if she dared to trouble him further. . She had remained in the house in Degraw street all the previous evening, and in the morning, when Good rich got up, she again besought him not to cast her off. Ho was very angry and re fused her request, or to hear her at all. Ho then went into the basement at the front of the house, and proceeded to light the heater which was located there. She loved the man so much that she could not leave him, and that when she saw him de termined to discard her she worked herself up to murder him. She had one of his re volvers in her pocket (not the one whioh the detectives fyund lying at the house be side the corpse), and while Goodrich was stooping down on one hand and knee in the act of lighting the heater, she drew the pistol, and extending her band toward him, shouted, ' Charlie 1 He looked up and sho shot him three times. These wore the fatal wounds which tho post-mortem examina tion disclosed. After she committed the murder on Thursday morning, she waited all that day and night iu the house, watch ing it. ' Friday morning she had occasion to go to ' New York, and early on that morning she washed the blood from the face of the murdered man with a towel, which she afterwards wrung out, ami which was also found damp by the police. She fixed tho corpse as it was discovered, and when she had done this she went over to New York for something or other, and was about to return to the house that Friday evening. She come over Fulton Ferry, and ere she had fairly put her foot on the street she heard the newsboys crying out, ." ex tra, murder of Charles Goodrich I" In regard to the efforts of the detectives, Commissioner Jourdan made the following statement : Eversinoe the murdor of Mr. Charles Goodrich, the police have been making cer tain efforts to obtain a clew to the guilty parties, and they have at all times done the best they could. Up to the present date they have never relaxed for one moment their search for the person who was believ ed to have committed the crime. Brook lyn has been scoured, as well as Philadel phia, Boston and other cities, and every clew which could be obtained has been worked up from the very start. They felt compelled, from the nature of the case, to leave nothing undone. We employed se cret agents of both sexes, which ia some times necessary in cases of this kind." I have hod a photograph of Kate Stoddard in my possession, and if you should see this woman you would eoe how difficult it would be to recognize her from that picture. (The Commissioner then exhibited the ori ginal picture, which was taken on glass, and from which be had photograph cards taken.) . This does not look at all Jiko the woman now., This picture Indicates the woman ia a fleshy condition and she now is almost a skeleton, and that makes a mark ed difference in her appearance. , I think the papers have boon very unfair in regard to the police. There was, of course, no human eye that witnessed this murder but that of the person who committed it, and she was comparatively unknown f the only person who knew hor by sight was sick in bed for six weeks after the murder was committed. But to go down to the details : This woman was met by Odr agent (Mary Handley) iu tho street last Tuesday after noon, in the neighborhood of Fulton Ferry. She met hor by accident, and as soon as she saw hor was convinced, notwithstand ing hor,, altered oppearnnco, that she Was Kato Stoddard. . She followed her and gave hor Into the custody of an officer of the Second pre cinct, who, on being told who she was, took her to the station-house. . It was our intention to have her brought directly here when she was arrested. It then became important to know where she lived, but she refused to give any information concerning horself. We wished' to know where her effects were. By a device hit upon by us that of seiidinj policemen to each house and inquiring if a woman wou missing the discovery of her late residence was made in High street, between Bridge and Jay, where she has been living since the middle" of April last. . The lady of the houso was requested to go to the station house and see if she could recognize her. Before this lady saw her face, she recog nized her by her voice. She said, "That's enough ; that's the woman." She then saw her through the crack of the door, and said, "Yes, that is she." The police then wont to the house, searched , her trunks, and thore discovered the property of Chas. Goodrich. There were tho rings, the seals, the pocket-book and the money, which is no doubt tho samo as he had in his posses sion at the time he was murdered ; the pis tol, with three chambers empty, and which it is understood she used to commit tho murder, was also found in her trunk. There were two trunks, besides other articles which have been taken possession of by the police. Our Homes.. There exists a very beautiful ideal of what home should be, but somehow men and women have fallen into the habit of showing the world their best side ; of ex erting themselves to be amiable and agree able to pooplo who care the least for them ; while to those to whom their interest, honor and happiness are of vital concern, they display all of their most uuholy aud disagreeable traits. Some men use their homes as escape valves for all the ill-humor generated by friction with the world. It will not do to storm and fume at that, but at home ah, there one has a right to do as he has a mind to ! It is his home, aud he is bound to have his own way there, which he un doubtedly could only there happens to be one or more others there intent upon the same thing. And, by the way, this " hav ing ono's own way" is a very difficult thing in a world like this, where every life is so linked with every other life. ' There are women, too, set down in the calendar of this world as patterns of amia bility, whose home temper is a sad com mentary upon the wisdom of the world's judgment! There are softly modulated and lady-like voices, the charm of the so cial oircle, which in the privacy of their houses break out in irritating taunts and angry retorts. These are " very nice wo men" who destroy all tho sweetness and blessedness of their household by loud and continual scolding, frettings, and fault findings. There are brothers who are chiv alrous and devoted toother people's sisters, but who at home tease and trouble their own. There are charming young ladies, fancied by soino infatuated young men to be angels, who are stubborn, self-willed and iudolent at home, where they should be most agreeable. The true meaning of home is not a place to go only when you feel hungry and cross ; where you can wear your wortit coat and your worst temper. The home is undervalued, and its Bweet ness and sanctity highly ' desecrated : It Bhould correspond with tho beautiful Ideal one, which we all venerate,' whore all baser passions are subdued' and controlled by sweet affection, tenderness and 'patience. It is where the wife prefers to stay above all other places ; a plaoe that is never lone ly to her, for the Innumerable blessings that hover around it ; where the shadow of solitude is lightened by the halo of quiet love ; where the hearth ia always bright, and the rooms tidy and cheerful, and where the wife spends her " afternoons," and the husband his "evenings." These are the shrines to which the absent and weary will turn with longing for rest and peace. ' tlfln Union county, about a mile and half from Lewisbnrg, is a log building ereoted in 1715. The house was made very strong so as to afford protection from the Indian. , On it logs can be seen hundreds of marks made from Indian darts and ar rows, received during the numerous en gagements which the early settlers of this country had with the savage. f ' ' tW When a man wauU money or asaliit ance, the world, as a rule, Is very obliging and indulgent, and let him want it.
