Tbe probabilities now are that there will be the largest assemblage on the old battle ground of Moore's Creeki to celebrate the centennial ann.versary of tbe historical event, that has been brought together for many years past at aDy point in tbe Cape Fear section.

Our Juries-Ail Unlortuiia.te Leuix I.ti ve Blunder. Editors of the Journal: No good cit izeu can visit our court house during court term, without being pained at the moral aud intellectual complexion of the. juries. Qo when yon will, there is always tho hudw sort of a jury, with hardly an intelligent face am ng the twelve. As iucompeteut as the better class of negroes are for the responsible duties of jurymen, it is a rare thing to see more than one or two of the respectable ouwh lu iug a session of court, tho selection having been made apparently from tbe worst of thin iu coufpeleut race. It is a serious matter to refb ct that. by legislative enactment, so jaany of our yon ig, vigorous, competent white men are exempted from this dufc , leaving tbe selection of jurymen to a much nrualh-r number of citizens, fre queutly embirrassing to tbe oftieer of he c ;nrt. I refer to the '-xemplion o' fireman. By an unfortunate act, of the L.gislaaire thi exemption was de creed, and the ir.j notice of it is b. com ing more and more manifest every yuar. If our county is to be afflicted session after session with such juries as the average ones siucti tbe recon struction, then will the trial br jury degenerate into what it is not far re moved from now a mere farce. So then, jast with the superficial view which your correspondent has made of this matter, added to their knowledge of the facts, the public will plainly see the source of the mis fortune which is so surely coming upon us year by year. There is no escape from baring negro jurymen, but the proper officer should be re quired to make his selection with some view to titni-ss or evn d -cency. The law should be repealed which grxnis exemption to any class of c -lzeus be- otuso of services rendered State or county. It is all very well to have faithful firemen, but it is a serious calamity fo hnve incompetent juror-. As the matter now stands there is no rson why, in tho course of tir-e, a lrge mnjonty may not escape jury duty by joining a tire company when vacancies occur and it is a well known fact that many join theye companies for the sole purpose of enjoying this exemption. A reform must be commenced in this matter, and it ia as well that it should begin as suggested above, for your correspondent is well aware that the points touched upon come far from covering the whole ground. This reform is certain to come sooner or later whether we will or no, and it behooves every good citizen t reflect upon tne matter aud use his influence for the accomplishment of the reform ation. F. To the public. We should not forget the Orphan Home iu Oxford and Aaheville. Here all orphans, all political partb s and all religions denominations are treated alik9. They receive children from six to twelve years, fetd and clothe them, give them a fair business education, aud then oiace them ia good homes or put them ou to learn trades. ' The Orphan's Friend, published every Wednesday for $1 a year, gives particular information as to the man agement and progress of the work, aud contains a full statement of weekly c intnbutious. While the asylums are under the control of the Masonic Grand Lodge of the State, other oem-volent institu tions and the Christian churches also lend their help to the enterprise. As we have fcaid, tne benefits of the asylums are not confined to the or phans of Masons, nor to any particu lar class of orphans, but wherever a poor, friendless one is found, he or she is taken iu and cared for. Having been appointeu by St. John's Lodge No. 1, a committee to assist in the good work, we m .ke a pressiug appe.tl to the people the Chri-tiau, charitable pcople of Wilmiugtou and vicinity, to come forward with their offerings of mouey and provisions to tlie support of the poor fatherless aud motherless little ones that are gathered in the asylums to receive a fair start in tbe race of life and to be trained for good and respectable citizens instead of becoming the future pests of society. Any contributions left with either one of the commiitee will be forwarded to Oxford aud any citizens kuowiug ol any orphans ot tween the ages of 6 aud 12 years, the committee will be glad to have their names left with them, ClU. l Com.

S. mail from New Or- !eaun to New York, by which half a million dollars were lost. Tht; Reg ister says: We stated in the Register Sunday that two boys, while out bunting in Choctaw Poiut Swamp, Saturday, found a number of letters which they took borne, and whicn upon exumina tion proved to be regularly . mailed matter. They returned to tbe swamp in order to find out something mor in regard to these letters, rud after searching a short while they fonud the leather mail bag, which hail been cut open. Tbe bag and letters were then taken to the postoffice and turned over' to the postmaster, wli.i bad them Newt'd up iu the bag and returned to the postmaster at New Orleans, at tbe same lime ad vising him of tueparticii iars. I?i order to obtsiu definite and reliable i-formation concerning this mystery we called at the postoffice, and met Mr. James R. Eagon, nss gtant postmaster, who told us th bag be longed to the mail of the 7th of Feb ruary, from New Orleans to New York. It, was not in the mail car, but, in thf bHggage car; the m.id cleik had nothing to to do with it -it belonged to what is called the fast mail, and was given over to the buggage master, who became responsible lor its sale ae- bveiy to the baggage mas-ter of the next connecting train, lhere were upwards of $500,000 iu drafts and ex change, in this md). Most of tbe foreign mail has been recovered, but l.ttle or none of the domestic mail. The postmaster at New Orleans sent a letter yesterday thankiug the post master here for what he bad done, and intimating that steps would be taken immediately to unravel this mystery. It is indeed remarkable that a Unit d States mail bag, containing drafts and bills of exchange, and perhaps money, to the amount of $oOO,000 ana ups wards, should be turown out of a pas senger car and robbed, and yet not a soul knew anything about it. It was only accidental that the discovery was made. The bag and letters might have lain in that swamp for years if these boys had not happened there in nuest of birds. We understand snecial United States detective has been sent for : in the interim our wo thy aud indefatigable local detec tives are doincr all that lie in their power to get a clew but tuna far their success has been nix. All day yester day and Sunday men were wading about the swamp hunting letters, and brought Quito a number to tne post office. The swamp covers an area of three quarters of a mile square and is full of moccasins. WILMINGTON, WASHINGTON. Washington, Feb. 17 Senate. Ingalls of Kansas introduced a bill for the' regnlation of Indian aff urs. It was referred to the committee on Indian affairs. The joint resolution of the Kentucky Legislature in favor of pensioning soldiers of the Mexican war was re ferred to the pen3ion committee. A bill was introduced by Merriman for beacon lights on the line of inland navigation from Chesapeake bay to the sounds iu North Carolina.

A long parliamentary debate followed, when the matter was npga- tived -Mnd the oath omitted Tbe bill reorganizing tbe judiciary was resumed, and a motion to lay the Dill on the table followed, when the House adjourned. The Senate oommittee took up the steamboat bill and referred it to the sub committee, consisting of Bontwell aud Dennis. nou. Hi. n. lveiiogg nas oeen ap pointed oommi3Sioner to adjust the fishiug question nuder tbe Alabama ti eaty. Gen. Sheridan was before the mili tary committee and opposed the pro posed reduction of the army, but holds that the transfer of the Indian bureau to the War Department nou Id reduce the expenses of that bureau by tho consolidation aud abolition of military posts. Fish 1ms signed the extradition papers of Winslow. The Democratic emeus set for to night has been postponed, th.3 consul tation committee not having concluded its work. Tbe President has no official inform ation of the resignation of Minister Schenck The committee on Indian nffairs heard Scleioher, Throckmorton, Lut; rell and others, who favor a trausfer of tho Indian bureau from the Interior to thu War Department. The ways aud means cominitteehave further postponed reporting the Ha waiian treaty measure. Cox has been appointed Speaker pro tern, during Kerr's absence to recruit his health. Washington, Feb. 18. House. Blackburn of Ky. offered a resolution asking the President for information as to whether any executive offices, acts or duties have been performed since the first of March, 1869, at a distance from the seat of government, and for how long a period at any one time and in what part of tbe United States; also, whether any public neceesity existed th refor. Objection being made to the present consideration of the resolution it was laid over one day. Robbius ollered a resolution asking the Secretary of War whether and what military officers acted as oonsulars or diplomatic appointes. The bill reoigauizmg tho judiciary was resumed. Cincinnati was substi tuted for Louisville. The "amendment substituting Mobile for New Orleans was rejected. Philadelphia for Pitts burgh was rejected. Pending a vote ordering the third reading, the House adjourned. The session to-morrow will be for debate only. Gen. Taylor and John W. Weed, lawyers of this city, February 10 made a motion in the court of claims that the evidence of certain witnesses in the casei af H-irriet A. Mills for 100 bales of cotton, valued at $40,000, and A? rv C. Cleveland for 500 bales, valued at $230,000, shall not oe used in the trial of either case on the lltb of Feb ruary. The court ordered that the evideuce may be withdrawn from use by plaintiffs t ut held for use by de fendants. The proceedings ngaiust r.'iyior aud Weed are based upon the fraudulent character of the withdrawn j testimony. A majority of the Senate committee ou privileges aud elections decided to-day to investigate the second charge made by the S ate of Alabama against Senator Hpeucer that his election to the United States was secured by cor rupt means and practices. They will hear evidence upon seventeen of the specifications under this charge but rt fuse to investigate the remaining thirteen, aud they also decline ro in vestigate the first charge, name'y: that he body by which Mr. Spencer claims to bnvo been elected to the Semite of the United States was not the General Assembly of Alabama, this question having already been decided iu Spencer's favor in the Sykes-Spencer contest. The bar of the Supreme Court paid the customary tribute to the memory of Reverdy Johnson. Scaenck s resignation nas not been received, but it is certainly xpected. fhere are no intimations as to bis euc- ssor.

Washiston, Feb. 19 Night The committee ou appropriations hope to reach a reduction of seven millions in the executive and legislat ve depart ments. The printing and engraving bureau will not resume work until an appropriation is made. Dyer telegraphs Pierrepont from St. Louis that he is satisfied that he judged Sherman too harshly. The frontier members of Congress seem unanimously to favor a transfer of the Indian bureau from the Interior to the War Departraent. Col. Geo. B. McCarter has tendered his resigDgtion as chief of the bureau of engraving and printing. It has been accepted. He has several times asked to be relieved but remained in office at the earnest solicitation of the Secre tary of tbe Treasury and the President.

Ruffin, a colored member of tne Hou- of Delegate from Dinwiddi Coumy, was expelled tosday for improper conduct in abstracting money from the pay box of ihe sergeunt-at-arins. His guilt was estab iohed beyond a doubt as the missiug money was traced to him, aud he confessed by giviug an order against his per diem for the amount. The mouey he took belonged to an other colored member which was iu .1 - me pay-Dox near ms own. iVew fork Capitalist Iie4-.otuiiir Alarmed, A meetiug of tbe New York Board of Trade was he.d last week to consider the currency question. Such men as Peter Cooper, E. B. Sanford, of the Adams' Express Company, S. Tousey, li. K. Bliss, W. Ortou, G. R. Matt.er lee, P. Farrellv, of tbe American News Compauy, aud others, participatf d in the diseussion. The memorial pre pared by Messrs. George Opdyke aud P. Farrellj to Congress, and a currency report was adopted. lhe memorial declares convertible paper is equal to coiu when issued only to the amount necessarily required fo trade, aud that incouvertible paper is luxurious, inasmuch as it is issued at the caprice of the government. The present inconvertible paper volume is found to be only a little in advauce. per capita, of the rate that existed be fore the war, through which the cur rency was greatly inflated. A return to specie payments, though much to be desired, would be disad vantageous unless tlie government had at least $150,000,1)00 in gold in its valts, and as tnia is not there by at least two-thirds, resumption in 1879 would be impracticable, as the drain of gold from this country ia jnach greater than the import. The report demands that the Treas ury Department add $10,000,000 an nually to the gold reserve, and that the national ba'-ks ba compelled to return all gold leceived by way of interest; that the act providing for resumption on January 1, 1879, be repealed; that greenbacks to the extent of eighty per cent., ba issued iu the place of na tional bank notes withdrawn from cir culation, and that $50,000,000 worth of United States bonds bearing 3 65 per cent, interest be authorized to be con vertible at will iutd legal tender notes. They claim the adoption of the above plan will restore couddence and re move fear of future financial trouble, give elasticity to currrency.and finally lead to resumptioti at a time when it will be beneficial to the commercial in terests. Messrs. Opdyke, Orton, Tousey, Satterlee and Clarke were elected as a delegation to present the memorial to Coogress. j The lumber dealers of Pennsylvania are somewhat of tbe same opinion. They have numerous. y signed a me morial to Congress from which wo quote as follows: That we demand tliat tne currency of the country shall be based upou the national credit, and that its volume shall be regulated by the law of supply aud demaud. That whilst we recognize gold as a valuable p irt of the currency, and that it is desirable that gold shall be at par with currency, we beiive that resump tion cannot be forced by merely legis lative dir-iction, and that the law which proposes to compel resumption in 1879 is impracticable. That it has so unset tled all prospective values and so alarmed capital and deterred ievest- men's iu productive industries as greatly to aggravate the financial dis tress, aud that it should be repealed, without delay or condition. That in view of the fact that the six per cent, currency bonds of the Uu'ted States, payable, principle and interest, in currency, and into ybih no gold basis enters, are higher iu the market thau the six per cent, gold bouds, and are at a premium of twenty -five per cent., whilst gold is at a premium of only thirteen per cent., or, iu other words, that the currency bouds are ut a premium of twelve" per cent, above gold, gives conclusive reason to believe that currency convertible at will into bonds bearing interest at a rate not exceediug 3.65 per cent, in currency would nee instantly to the par of goid. That we believe that sound financial policy requires tnat the value of the bond shall be brought down by a re duction of interest, and that the value of the currency shall be brought up by making it convert ible into bo ids, and that iuter-couvertibility of cur rency and bonds, at the will of tlie holder, would speedily establish gold and currency at equivalent values, and lead to prompt resumption of specie payment aud the immediate revival of business. That we are opposed to either con traction or expansion of the currency by any arbitrary limitations ot its volum?. That money is only an instrument of commerce, and we are opposi d to ll attempts fo make the business of those who use money in productive industries, subservient to the interest of those who lend it. That a currency convertible into bonds cannot fall balow the value of such bonds; that such a currency can not become depreciated, and a cur rency not depreciated cannot become inflated. That we demand that the currency which the government compels the people to take it, shall itself receive. But where the public faith is pledged to the payment in gold of bonds ai ready issued, such pledge must be preserved inviolate.

BTJIT-AJLiO HUNT. It was a calm, beautiful xuorning in the month of October that my friend nob Morton and myself mounted our horses and rode up the north bank of tne South Platte on a hunt after buffa loes You will understand that tbe Platte river, at St. Vraiu's, makes a great bend tb river above the fort running almost due north, and turning almost due east at the foot. We thought we would ride up the river a few milet, and then, striking north west into the broad open prairie, where w should bo most likely to find our game, return y a t-hort cut acro-s th prairie to the fort; though it made lit tle difference to us whether we returned to-night or. to-morrow, as we were ac customed to camping out. We rode up the river until almost noon, seeing many deer and wolves for oue could hardly ride through this tall grass a mile without seeing them yet, as we were notlookiug after th;s kind of game, we paid no attut on to them until nearly noon, when, feeling somewhat tired and hungry. Bob, who was nn excellent shot, killed a fine buck; and, dismounting, we made t most delicious meal on the young ten der venison. Mounting, after dinner, we struck normwesr across tue broad prairie, where, with the exception f the tall grass, there was not a tree or shrub ou all that vast expanse, except along the river bank. It was about, four o'clock in the after noon, ju-t as wa were begiuning to get discouraged, and we were thinking of turning our horses' heads towards home, when we discovered the objects of our search. They were two buff t loes quietly feeding on a little rise of the piairie the first rise we had dis covered sine- leaving the river. We were now many mil. s from where we had left the river at noon, but hoped iye were not far from the fort by a di rect route across the prairie, though we did not know how f r, neither of us having been out there before. Hurrah, Fred! exclaimed Bob, put tiug spurs to his horse uud getting ex cited. "Now for some sport, aud buffaloes' tongues for supper," and away we went at a reckless break neck speed . Our game was a loDg distance off wLen first discovered, uud disappeared over a rise in the prairie, aud was out of 6l'ght. We agreod to separate as soon as we reached the top of tbe ridge, aud t-ach take our gmo aud charge down upon them aud capture both, if possible. As we came dashing up to the top of tho bill they dicovered us anil immedi ately took to flight. Buffaloes cau run very fast, notwithstanding their weight; they seem to gather momen tum as they proceed, aud are not easily ruu dowu. We made our choice imm diately and gave pursuit. My horse was flet but the tall gr tss tangled his feet, aud I ha 1 a long bard chase before 1 came up with my game. I paid no attention to Bob; his game had taken a different direetiou fr-.m mine, and we were soon widely sepa rated. After a hard chase, I came near enough, I thought, to veuture a shot perhaps, if I did not kill him, I could cripple him aud thus st p him some what iu his mad career. I brought my rifle to my shoulder quickly; but as I fired my horse stumbled slightly, his feet having become tangled in the gra; s, aud I missed my aim, but struck the beast in the shoulder instead of tbe heart; and the ball being large, made a terrible wound, from which the blood flew in a stream. This maddeued him; and turning quickly, he charged with a terrible had snort, and half roar down upon me. My horse was taken by surprise and frightened; and in springing partly to one eide, as if to turn suddenly aud fly away from the mad creature, his feet caught in the tangled grass, aud he fell, throwing me many feet over his head. The fall did not hurt me, and I was on my feet iu an instant; but before I could reach my horse he was up jud bounding away over the prairie, leav ing me to my fate. I had no time to think whether I fancied the situation or not, for the mad bull was upon me almost; 'tud with a look of despa r afier my flying horse, 1 ran, I knew not whither, but with an instinct of selt-pre-ervation; all this happened in an instant. I had doped tbe maddened creature ' would pursue my hors--;' but not so the buffalo kuows well who is his worst enemy. I was fleet, of f ot; for I bad run for my life many Units; but the tall giass impeded my progress, and I kuw I could hold out but a feyv mo ments. I saw not tbe sligbteetchance for my life. Hete I wa---, upou this broad oc-au of prairie; Hob was, I knew not where, nor had tim j to look; tne grass tangling my feet aud takiQji away my strength, and a wounded bufifa'o with in a few yarus of me, and gaining upon me at everv bound. I thought of my revolver, aud that I would sell my life as dearly as possi ble. I always carried it iu my belt, and perhaps I couid throw it over my shoulder and shoot tbe bull in the eye. I had no hope of the bail doing him any Hurt li it uu mm uuywuere pise; for you must know that these animals always have a tinck mass of hair on it foreheads, that is so matted -.1 1 -11J together witn sanu ana airi, inai no ball from a rifle will penetrate 't. 1 knew if a ball from my rifle struck his foiehead. it would have u more effect than the wiud blowing against it. j. pnt my hand to my belt; but my revolver as goue, the scabbard was empty. It had probably fallen out when I was thrown from my Uorse. It was with a feeling somewhat of despair that I found it gone It eemei as if ttiore was nothing out death before roe; for bow could 1 hope to escape from, cope successfully with, a wound' d buffalo wounded, as I knew, iu no vital pait, but sufficiently to madden him. I could bear more plainly hi3 half grunt and half snort cloe upon n.y heels and could feel his bre;dh upou mv back in another instant he would be upon me would pierce me with bis short stumpy hoi ns would grind me to the nrth" with his monster head, and trample me beneath his feet. I indeed felt that my time had come that no earthly power could save me and instinctively I breathed a prayer to heaven. At that instant my feet became en tangled nd I fell; the maddened creature had just touched me us I went down, and was under such terrible headway that he passed directly over me without touching me. As his tail brushed over my face I grasped it, an! was dragged to my feet, as the buffalo, stopping suddenly, attempted to turn upon me. But I had a now lease of my life. 1 held on to ms tail witn a death gra-p, and was dragged round and round. You may smile, dear reader, but the taiihold was my last chauce now, and I held on with the grim determination while the bull wheeled rapidly round and round, roared, snuffed, snorted and pawed tbe ground iu his terrible raget but could not snake me on. . But what should I do now? I knew I could not hold on to him long, as my strength was nearly exhausted, having ran so far before I fell. I had nothing to kill him with not even a penknife. His wound was bleeding profusely, and my hope was that he might be come exhausted first: but he seemed far from that now, while J seemed very near to it. I knew my strength could hold out but little longer; aud to let go was certainly death. The bull would suddenly take a freak and run and bellow with all his might, 'drag ging me with velocity then he would stop and with a terrific snort attempt to turn on me, and it was more than I oould do with my failing strength to keep out of his way, and several times his horns rent my clothing. This state of things could not con tinue; I was jerked hither and thither. my arms nearly pulled from their sockets worried almost to death and about to loose my hold when, as the mad creature paused an instant, the sharp crack of a rifle rang out noon the air, and the huge creature gave one plunge, and fell upon his side in the deuth struggle. I was safe, but it came not a mo ment too soon. I, too, fell to the ground, more dead than alive. The sequel is soon told. It was Bob who had saved me. He had been more f .rtuuate than I, and after a hard chase bad killed his game, and thn looked round for me. The first thing li j saw was my horse without a rider, mid then he discovered me in the dis t. nice clineing to the bull's tail for dear life; and putting spurs to his horse, he Ciiuie to my assistance. It was some time before he oould shoot, for fear of hitting me; but he finally su seeded in planting a ball directly iu the auimal's breast. After resting, cap uring my horse, and securing my revolver, which I easily found where I fell from the horse, we sat dowu to smoke and re late our adventures.

Tho House met in secret session to-day. It beard tbe reiort and evidence of tne committee appo.nted lo investigate tbe charges against Judge Montgomery Moses of the seveutn circuit, xue evidence is to show that the accused was miiltv of issuing fiduciary mouey, and the report recommends that he be imn unban. It was adopted by a unanimous vote of ninety-seven ayes, and committees were appointed to pre- t articles of impeachment, and to notifv the Seunte of the same. Tn the circuit court.

Tbe grand jury found a t.rii bill aea'nst Cnief of Police Nixon, of Columbia, for breach' o trust with fraudulent intent, and for grand larceny in the diamond p matter. The shrewdest yet: A applied to B for a loan of $100. B repaed: "My dear A, nothing would please me bet ter than to oblige you, and X li do it. I hav'nt $10Q by ma, but you make nnta and 1 11 endorse it. and you can get the money from the bank. ' Grate ful A proceeded ac once to write t note. "Stay," said B, "make it $200 I wnt $100 myself. . A did bo, li en dorsed the paper, the bank discounted it, and the money was divided. When the note was due B was in California, nd A had to meet the raymenfc. What he is unable to oipher out is whether he borrowed $100 of A, or A borrowed $100 of him. IsQioeti courier. NO. 8 Klngr mid Scbumaker. From'the Baltimore American' It is announced from Washington that the distinguished lawyers of the House Judiciary Committeo are in doubt as to whether the House pos sesses tne power oi expelling two of its members who aro accused we may oay conviciea oi aisnonesty and bribery previous to their becoming members. These individuals are Scbumaker of New 'York and King. of Minnesota. The facts in their cases are quite plain. At the investigation into the Pacific Mail corruption they were proven to nave been active agents in the dispensation of the bribery fund oi a minion o collars, and their names figured iu the list as recipients of a considerable slice of that generous pie. When the developments were made they found it convenient to shake the dust of the United States off their feet. Mr. Scbumaker was suddenly called to Europe, and Mr. Kiug abandoned his dinuesota bonu for a temporary residence in Canada. We do not know that they have ever de nied the allegations elicited in the in vestigation, although they did take refuge in such vague replies and as severations of injured innocence as are common in statesmen of their sort who aro detected in dark transactions. They were elected to the present Con gress, and were not too" modest to claim their seats. As we understand it, the technicality upon which the Judiciary Committee hang is that, not having been mem bers of the House at the time of com mitting the offences charged, they are not amenable to it for their previous conduct, and that the latter does not now disqualify them from now holdrg seats, xne question is not. a new one. but it peems to us that the Consfitu- i tion clearly covers it in providing that i .. . " """"""" J''o" oi tne quaiincations oi members eiecteu. me power is m no way limited or restricted. If the majority oi tne Mouse does not consider a mem ber qualified it can refuse him his seat, unseat him after he has taken it. There is no doubt as to the criminality of King and Scbumaker; the testimony against them is plain and direct, and spread upon the records. In these instances, the House would set an ac ceptable example of reprobation of corruptionists if it would relegate both the New York and Minnesota Con gressmen to private life. They have been turned over to the courts for dis position, but through the shifts and devices of sharp practice they have never been brought to justice, and it is not likely they ever will be, unless tbe house gives them their deserts. There is no question of partisanism to complicate the issue, as KiDg ia a Re publican and Schumaker a Democrat. Whatever report the committee may make, it is to be hoped that some Re publican member will move the expul sion of King, and then, if the majority decide he is fit to occupy a eat, the country will know vhere to place the blame. Arrest of a Slier It f . Sheriff Young.of Buncombe, brought a blind lunatic to tho asylum, but the institution was packed to full extent, and Dr. Grissom told the Sheriff he would do the best he could end try to make room for the unfortunttte man in a few Weeks. At the suggestion of Judge Henry the Sheriff got an old negro .here, Sana Wortham, to take charge of the lunatic and paid him in advance for his support and mainten ance. The Sheriff on Monday as he boarded the train was interviewed by a policeman and arrested on a warrant for violating a statute iu regard to the insane." JThe result of the arrest waa only to detain him hero another day, aud he ' left yesterday morning for Asheville, leaving the blind lunatic be hind. In a few minutes talk with him before leaving it seemed his purpose to take action against the corporation for arresting him; he said they had waked up the wrong passenger; that his clothes might be a litttle out of date and his appearance unprepossess ing, but he was as good an old reb as ever fluttered.
