As soon as I could get out, I commenced in quiries for him in every direction, arid finally, through the police, heard pf the arre6t of a child about his age. "And here he is, said tne latner, with a trembling lip, as he turned his melting eyes upon the weeping bov. "What can I do for him? I have done something for my coun try, and bear the marks of it. Per haps for this, the first crime, my child may be forgiven." The old soldier opened the worn garment that covered his breast, and and showed the terrible scars of the lately healed wounds which he had brought from the field of blood.

We had never Keen anything by that name in this country, and curiosity lei us to examine this wonderful critter It was a leather wing bat News. Calling the Dead. ' Everybody will remember that Matilda Heron, the actress, while in California, some years -ince, married a lawyer popularly known as "Harry Byrne" from whom she subsequent ly parted. Upon his death, a year or two ago, Miss Heron went to San Francisco in the hope of secur ing a portion at least of the hand some property he was said to have left, in which effort, we believe she failed. Byrne was universally ad mitted t be a rich and scholarly literary a' tainments and of original and eloquent genius as an advocate. Among the many instances of his tact as a prosecutor, the following from a 'Frisco paper, is perhaps the most striking. fcome time in the year 18 , a ge .tleman from one section of the country, being displeased with the conducts, actions, or words of an other, manifested his disapproval by deliberately shooting him down. In his hour of need the influence of his element was - employed; his sectional friends flocked around; eminent counsel were engaged, among whom were the names of such men as Baker, McDougal and Ting 1 y, fie leaders of the bar. Byrne, who occupied the position of "Dis trict Attorney, bein at that time a very young man of rising talents, who was winning his way to the high position he afterwards attained, a ad Elisha Cook. The day of irial commenced, but it was c needed on nil sides ihat the prisoner, with his eminent counsel, his command of money, and his throng of sympathizing friends, would cheat the gallows and mock at justice. Aft- r the evidence was all in, 31 r. Cook made an able and brilliant opening for the ttate, but no avail. Theu followed the counst for the defence. They were forci ble, able and eloquent. They had a powerful effect wrought upon the jury, and it was p lpable to all that there was scarcely a possibility of a verdict antagonistic to the prisoner. Mr. Byrne rose in the court room and amid, deep silence proceeded to close for the prosecution. Pale as the white walls around him, with long and flowing black lock, his eyes burning and glowing like a black cal, he tore the veil of sophistry, weaved around the subject of his adversaries, an laid the bald and awful fac s before the jury. Now rising fr powerful denunciation, he saemed a rsenif sis to tne cowering criminal before him: now he turned his voice to lowering persuation as he sought to mould the jury to his wislie-. Uut, as tie paused, alter a tremendous effort-his eye- persuaded lnm tliat, unless he i-ahed some new and startling line of action, the ver dict would be against him. At the time an old eccentric man was bailiff of the court. One f his peculiarities was sleep through LllC itl'tTU'aCul, rtr-.nnoijl. o-n1 naught could arouse him save the command of the court and the voice of the Dis rict At orney directing him to some official act; but at these well known sounds he would start from his seat with an alacrity re markable for one of his years. lurmogto the old man, (wlio was enjoig his usual nap) B yne, to whom this idiosncray was well known, pointed his finder at the peace ful countenauce, and . theu tulog zo 1 his faithful attentioa to h's duties ' But," said he, "'he has left one duty UDDerfornied." Then, with a voice that thrilled through men's hearts, nnd made the rafters riug : ' Mr. Bailiff, call Woi Adam's." The old man ppraug from his seat, and hurry ing across the court-room to the en. trance beyond, called iu a weird, thick manner, the detd man's name, "Wil ham Adams, William Adams, Wil liam Adams, co ne iuto court." The criminal shivered ia his seat, meu's blood flowed coldly, aud the si lence was that of death. Justice seem ed crying to Heaven for retribution ; the faces of the jurors grew white and blue, and each man glued his eyes upon the door as if he expected the apparition to answer the summons. "Gentle.Tien," continued Bryne, 'that witness cau never come. The ona who cm relate to vou the oircurn stances of this tragedy li.-s in his cold and silent grave. iSo baililt s voice can arouse him from his eteintl sleep; naught save the clarion blast of the Archangel's trumpet can pierce the adamantine walls of his resting place. He has been deafened for .ver by him who stands arraigned at th s bar Base, brutal, bloody man, upon you hangs ibis awful responsability. lour ham's have dabbled in his blood, and as the instrument of outraged society demand your conviction.

The stiff-necked and rebellious "en eration, Bourbou in instinct and trebly RourboE by practice, are requested to read this from the leading journal of the Northwest, tie Chicago Tribune: The farmers of McLean county, 111., who have been accustomed to give 2,500 majority, have taken it into their heads to ttirow party overboard and nominate a ticket of their own for county oiEoerp. The farmers of th county of DeWitt have done the same thing. Today the fanners of Bureau couuty, who have been in the habit of electiog the regular tickets by 12,000 to 14,000 majority, hold a onvention to nominate a ticket of their own. In a few days or weeks the farmers of Campaign, Whiteside, Livingstone, Knox and Union will hold their conventions, and put in nomination candidates of their own. Th;s movement is not confined to the counties we hav named, nor to Re-' publican counties. It is just as strong in counties where the Democratic par. ty is in the majority. The difference, however, is that, iu nearly every case the Demoaratic organization has "kick ed the bucket" in advance, and aban doned all purpose of holding party con ventions to nominate tickets. In the republican counties, however, t'je postmasters und revenue officers, the bread and butler brigade, fuel cal led upon to preserve the party by ma king party uomiua'ions. Iu (hi.- pro ceeding they are suppoitcd by the par ty newspapers, who affect a Ivcly zea! tor the Farmers Movement, so long as that movement docs nothing practical. The politicians and new-pape(org;in. deolare that the ranization of :i Furmers' pary isn imp seibility, and Uiat the farmers will not, and cannot. nonnrate tickets iu opposition to the Republican party candidates, aca the answer given to this by the farmers is i ne actual nomination nf inr. annli ckets.

Eveo tli jso copper-colored cut throats, the Apache Indians, have a touch of delicacy ana ro:na ne in them. From a lector'' delivered iu San Francisco by C1. John C Car many, we take the following account of their courting customs: Every young girl is at liberty to reluse a suitor for a hand. The father, mother and bro ther are prohibited from interfering iu her olioicc. Her person is at her own disposal. After a brief courtship the lover makes a formul proposal by offeriug so many horses. Horses aro a standard of value among Indians. As the squaw does all the work, hor ses aro accepted as au equivs-.k'ir. for her labor. Wl en a young warrior becomes enamored he fas'.ens the horso ne ir tlvj wigwam of the rquaw whoso hand i-e seeks, where he it loft fur ?our days. If she fails to feed find water the horse during that time tho master is rejected, but if she accepts his offer, she grooms and kindly car a for the horse, and theu ties him to the wigwam cf her lover, as much as to say, "I am willing to bo your slave and do your work." At the marriage the sages and sachems meet together, and the bride is not unfrequet.tty loaded with foifty to fifty pounds of silver and copper trinkets.

Sound Logic. O'd Joe was a quiet old man, nit somehow too fond ot the bottla When in cups his ideas tended toward theological matters, which he always ayoided in his sober moments. It was Saturday afternoon (Connecticut ba king day,) and his good wife wanted some wood for the oven. "Joe I do wish you would go and plit some wood ; here it is neirly 2 o'clock, ana the n-e isn t made. Joe went i ut to execute his commis sion and fearing his physical condition was weak, marched to the n- lghboring tavern to fortify himself therein. He returned home utterly oblivious to all things save his pet theories. Seating himself on a chair, he said: T siy (hie) Jane, do (hie) you think hie the Lord (hic means to burn us;di (hie) up in fire'!"' His venerable spouse being exceed ingly irate did not answer. Again he repeated tne question, sun an omi uqus silence. "Wife do you think the Lord means to burn us all tip in fire everlasting?" "Xo !" said the now thoroughly aroused housewife; 'no, you eld fool, not if Ho waits for you to split the wood !" A Goat Story.
