Henry A. Farina, Jr., Editor THURSDAY, JUNK 12, 1870. By ft vote of 81 yeas to 21 nays tlip Louisiana Constitutional Convention has adopted at( ordinuncc ugainst sectarian- appropriations. It is announced that the Curtin Yoettm contested election case bus come to astopat thegovernment print ing office for want of funds. Thin is a great dissapolntment to the Demo crats on the committee, as they have been noticeably eager to dispose of this case at this session. Mr. Hayes has concluded to sign the silver small Coin bill providing for th exchange of subsidiary silver for lawful money of the United States, Twenty dollars or any multiple thereof of a lesser denomination than one dol lar may now be exchanged for cur rency, and become a legal tender in sums not exceeding ten dollars for all dues public and private. A man living near Griffin, Oa sun nastaith in the ultimate value of Confederate currency. He has a fish ftrixd aftd Will allow anybody to fish in it one day for one hundred dollars in Confederate money. He has also mill, and he will sell a bushel of meal, or he will give one dollar in green- barks or gold, for one hundred dollars of the same worthless currency. Mrs. Julia McCarty, one hundred and four years old, died at the Fall River (Mass.) City Hospital last Thursday afternoon. On the 22d of May she jumped from a second story window to the ground, a distance of twenty feet, without dislocating or breaking a bone. Her oldest son died fen years ago, seventy-six years old, and another son, sixty-two years old, lives at Fall River. Gen. B. F. Butler passed through Portland, Me., on Tuesday, accom panied by bis son, on a fishing excur sion. In conversation with a friend in the smoking-car he is reported to have said: "Congress is to blame for the present condition of affairs. Con gress seems to be trying to get up a row on the southern question when there is no need of having one. I don't object to a row, but I want it to be for some cause." The fuilureof a jury to convict the Yoakum brothers of murder, at Ba kersfieid, Cai., displeased the populace. A mob broke into the jail at night, and one of the prisoners was quickly hanged to the bars of his cell, a noose being thrown over his head, and the rope pulled through the grating. Then the lynchers went to the other's cell door, and found that he was fet tered to the floor. As they were un able to enter, they tried to lassoo him, as they had done with his brother, and then choke him to death by pulling at the rope; but he dodged the noose suc cessfully. So they killed him with their revolvers, firing so recklessly that two of their own number were accidentally wounded. Calvin Hall, a very eccentric character, was buried atSomers, Conn., last Friday. Twenty years ago he made his will giving certain amounts to his nearest relatives. He then went around and bought from each person the share in the will at twenty per centum discount. Some persons of whom he bought were both poor and aged, and were made comfortably and happy In their last days. He leaves a fund of $5,000 for the town of Soin ers. the income of which is to go to the worthy poor who have not yet become paupers provided the town will assume the care of a like fund of $5,000 and give the income to the Spiritualists. If the town refuses to accept the trust the whole goes to the Spiritualists, for whom he has built a church. In mid dle life, he was a Universalist. On May 24, Queen Victory com pleted her 60th year, an ago which has been exceeded by eleven only of the sovereigns of England, dating from the Norman Conquest, namely: Henry I. , who lived to the age of C7 years; Henry 111., who lived G5 years; Ed Ward I., who lived to be 67 years old; Edward III., 65 years; Queen Eliza beth, who reached 69 years; James II., 68 years; George I., 67 years; George II. , 77 years; George III., 82 years; George IV., 68 years; and William IV., who lived 72 year. She has reigned forty-two years on the 20th of June next, a period which has not been ex hy more than four English sovereigns, namely: Henry III., who reigned fifty-six years; Edward III., who reigned fifty years; Queen Elizabeth, wlio reigned forty-five years; and George III., sixty years. George- Ralford, of the Carson City (Nev.) Mmt, has probably the most complete collection of flags in America'. He began taking an inter est in flags about eight years ago, and he has in his house every flag of note that floats on land or sea throughout the world. He has the recognized flags of all nations, together with the special emblems which float on state occasions, the flags of nations which have passed away, and those which have been flung to the breeze at vari ous times by insurrectionists. The flags are all of tfie best possible work manship, cither of silk or bunting, and the collection cost the owner more than $5,000. He is constantly adding to it, and a New York firm has a standing order to furnish him with all rare flags that can be secured. He has written for the war standard of the Zulus, mid expects to receive it in about three month. A Xcgro ltiol. SIX KILLED AND SEVERAL WOUNDED. Savannah, Jtiue 0. A terrible Hot look place thlsafternoou at Mcintosh, Liberty county, a station .on tho At lantic and Gulf railroad, between a party of negro excursionists from Bryan county and negroes belonging In Mcintosh. The trouble be 'trail In n fight between two negroes, when John Rundnlo, captain of a negro militia company from Bryan county, which company formed part of the excursion party, were ordered to charge. The company obeyed the order, bayonet ing everybody within roach. The captain himself killing one man by running his sword through him. There was intense excitement at tills outrage and the Mcintosh negroes rallied and drove the military com pany into the cars, opened fire on them and killed four and wounded a large number of others, and only stopped shooting when the train was drawn out of range. They tried to prevent the train from leaving by tearing up the track, but failed. All the parties engaged were negroes. The Warner Silver Bill. NOT L1KKLY To UK HEl'OKTED TO THE SENATE THIS SESSION. Washington, June 4. Tho belief strengthens every day that tho Senate Committee on Finance will not report the Warner Silver Bill at this session. Indeed, Senator Jones, of Nevada, who is one of the strongest advocates of the bill and a member of the l nance Committee, said to day that he had little hope of the bill being re ported at this session. He. was asked if it was true that the bill was imper fect, even in the opinion of its friends, and would be considerably amended before it is reported. He replied with some warmth that the bill was not im perfect in any particular; that it was complete and perfect in all it proposed to do. He stated, further, that while the friends of the measure are very anxious to have action upon it, and would be very glad to have the bill passed this session, still they were not disposed to rush things, or to urge the immediate consideration of the bill it would probably give rise to a discus sion that might last for an indefinite period, and keep Congress in session throughout the hottest weather. Be sides, he said, there is a custom in the Senate that when one or two members of a committee asks to be allowed a reasonable length of time in which to examine a measure, tho request is gen erally granted. In this instance sev eral of the members of the Finance Committee arc averse to the proposit ion to nurry so important a measure through without the fullest examina tion of it, and have pleaded for more time. Mr. Jones thinks the request reasonable, and while he does not speak officially, he advances his indi vidual opinion that the Silver Bill will not be reported at this session. As the Finance Committee meets again on Friday, it is probable that the fate of the bill, for this session at east, will be settled at that time. lhe danger ot allowing persons who have been acquitted of crimes on the ground of insanity to go ut large has had a striking illustration in In diana. Some eight years ago a man named Benjowsky shot and killed another man, but was acquitted on the ground that he was insane. No attempt. was made, however, to confine him. Last Monday he called on the Rev. G. L. Curtis in Shelbyville and, suddenly drawing a pistol, attempted to shoot him without any provocation. The clergyman wrested the weapon from him, and now he will go to an insane asylum. About the 10th of December last a young man, son of a professor in the gymnasium at Darmstadt, in Germany, walked with bis betrothed, a young and pretty girl, to a pond some two miles oft' in the adjoining woods ; there they tied themselves together and jumped in, intending to end their troubles in suicide; however, the icy cold water brought the gentleman to his senses, and he contrived to free himself and scramble out, leaving the poor girl, In spite of her cries, to drown, which she did. He was re cently tried, and sentenced to three years and nine mouths' imprisonment for the offence. Texas has enacted a local option bell-punch law. Each county in the State may decide as heretofore whether alcoholic beverages shall or shall not be sold within its borders, and, should the verdict be in favor of the sale, then the county authorities may decide upon the number of places to be licensed and provided with bell punches. The Galveston News esti mates that 200 counties will adopt the bell-punch system, and that the num ber of punches required will be about 4,000. It is a singular fact that, not withstanding the prevalence of vio lence in Texas, tho sale of liquor is strictly prohibited in many counties of that State. The slave trado on the oast coast of Africa is no longer flourishing. News readied Zanzibar the other day that three separate gangs of slaves were on their way to the coast, but bo- fore the intelligence came the Sultan had caught oue of them, and Dr. Kirk had dropped upon another. The Kilwa road, formerly the most fre quented for slave dealing, is almost en tirely closed. The trade now is barely enough to keep the coast plantations going. The export trade has been at an end for several years, and it is years since a man slave has been taken by tho cruisers on the station. Dhows are still tancn and condemned, but it is for the illegal transport of old slaves, not new. For iiails and Builders' hardware go to 42 Main street. EXF.ClTOit'.S SAL12.

Rowells & Co'S., SELECT LIST OF LOCAL NEWSPAPERS ! Many persons suppose this list to be composed of CHEAP, low-priced newspapers. The fact is quite oilier wise. The Catalogue states exactly what the papers are. When the name of a paper is printed in FULL FACE TYPE it is in every instance the BEST paper in the place. When printed in CAPITALS it is the ONLY paper in the place. When printed in Roman letters it is neither the best nor the only paper, but is usually a very good one, notwithstanding. The list gives the population of every town and the circulation ot every paper. IT is NOT A CO-OPERATIVE LIST. It IS NOT A CHEAP LIST. At the foot of the Catalogue for eacli State the im portant towns which are not covered y the list are enumerated. It is an Honest List. The rates charged for advertising are barely one-fifth the publishers' schedule. The price for one inch four weeks in the entire list is $035. yriie regular rates of the n- pers tor the same space and time are 33,l36.yo. The list includes 9i0 news papers, ot which 103 are issued Daily and 807 Weekly.
