T.v particulars were about as f how.- : On Saturday evening, some wh re bovsbe > came engaged in an altercation w ill some negroes, and on< of the negroes was knocked down. The mokes gath ered their friends together and the 1 white boys did likewise and caused them to retreat; the white boys threat ened, as the negroes claim, to “clear em out” at some future time. On Monday night the negroes assembled, to the number of 50 or 60. and paraded the streets, saying they were “ready for em,” alluding to the crowd o: young whites with whom they had the row on Saturday night. No violence was offered, no blows were struck, and no blood was spilt Ihe Constable—, who likewise holds the position of Bai liff - went among the blacks and order led them to disperse, and go to their homes, which they finally did. For a time the people of the town were very much excited in regard to the affair, as there were all sorts of rumors all '.it in regard to the matter. On Tuesday writs were issued for 52 of the negroes engaged, or suppose 1 to have i en gaged, in the parade the night before, and of this numl r. in cifftub of su:ai. one for • uisoideriy conduct,” II were sent to Snow Hi!! and lodged in jail.

Having .suffered from the depredations of dogs up an ids sheep fold, he built around a number of sheep that the dogs hud killed an in ch mure of rails twelve feet high and about ten feet square at the ground,the sides of the trap sloping inward until an opening was leit about live Let • juare. Any dog could easily climb such a sloping fence and enter the pen, but not even a greyhound could jump out of it. In three nights the farmer captured forty-six dogs, including fif teen or twenty that had never been seen before in that neighborhood.— 1 his. after there had been a public slaughter of all dogs suspected ul sheep killing, save one, whose master could not be convinced of his guilt. The trap wa-. built forhisespeoi.il bene fit and it caught him the first night. And now the season of the year is at hand in which the honest farmer is o industriously cultivated that he finds scarcely time in which to attend to the interests of his own cultivation Just now everybody wants the honest farm er’s vote, and as fanning is an occupa tion which more than most others iso lates a man, and in a large measure de nies him opportunities for discussing leading questions with iris friends, the candidates shrewdly venture upon statements that would appal Munchau sen, Jules Verne or a Louisiana poli n, The grievances of the body politic is paraded Ire lore him, and the ncrest farmer thinks the matter all over when left alone, and is unani mous in ns conclusion that lie knows about as much as some other people.

So proficient has he be come in his newly acquired profusion j that a tew days ago he followed ins mas ter to the “flats” and caught no less than three hundred elatns, taking one clam at a time and placing them all in one hug pile. The most curion3 part, however, is that be can find them under sand. The clam sign is somewhat simi lar to that of the nnnninoe : a little hole in the sand about the size of garden pea. Du ing low water, when the flits are dry. the dog will search diligently n r these signs, and when found, dig with his paws until the clam is brought to light, then, taking it iu nis mouth,he carries it to bis pile ; aud thu- lie keeps on until his master has secured clams enough, or the fid : comes iu and pre vents further work.

There :ia boon n.uih soli crude in the public mind, anc! especially iu the ever sensitive circles of business, in re gard to the probable action of eminent i ffi- :ils in the event of tbe doth of the President To all who have intelligently and dispassionately noted the currents of < v Ms during the present painful su ; pen so at Washington, the following p unts would seem to be practically set ! tied. 1. Y’tee President Arthur will not, under any eireumtances, claim to as sume the pour rs and duties of tha Presi dency, however protracted and absolute . may be the inability of the Preside -1 to discharge the Executive functions. 2 The Cabinet will not, under any > circumstances, cad upon the Y’tca Presi -1 dent to assume the powers and duties of the Executive office. Fortunately there has bet n oo pressing necessity during the present evident inability of the Pres ident, but if the inability should continue aud ti * most pressing Executive duties should be presented, the Cabinet will feel unaufhor z--d to Ptimmon the Y”ice j President to a-sume the powers and du- I ties "f Die Presidency, until the nuibori -1 tj shall he cl.arly defined bv act of Con gress. 3. Y ire President Arthur will not bo summoned to Washington by the Cabi net ?s lo ig as the President lives. It is known that the Y ice President is strong ly averse to obedience to such a sum mons. cv.'n from the Cabinet, because •f die extreme delicacy of the position he would ncecsvirily occupy ,a one wait ing for the honors of a dying President. 4 The Cabinet have not the signa ture of President Garfield to a proclama tion for an extra session of Congress,and unno will t:e called, under any circum stances, in the name of the present Exe cutive The oil of an extra sesuou t.i meet possible contingencies resulting from the death of the President would he a needless and might prove a most serious, embarrassment to the new ad ministration. Ii th.-rc shall be an extra sessiou of Congress growing cut of the assassination of the President, it will be called by President Arthur. 5. An rx'ra session of Congress is most improbable in any event. In ease of the acccesi a of Arthur to the Presi dency, a call tor an extra session of the Senate would be likely to enable tho body to choose a President pro tern, and thus quiet the public apprehension about nn interregnum in tire Presidential of fice, in the contiugcncy of the death of Arthur. C. If an rxfrn session of the Senate shall bn called, t lie Democrats will promptly elect the venerable Senator Anthony, president pro lem. of the body, and thus at orco allay all popular fears of a partisan wrangle ru deepen tho glootn of the nation. 7 If Arthur shall beeorne President the present Cabinet will continue in office until the meeting of Congress There wril he no sudden shock to the political policy of the Garfield adminis tration, but there uiii be a gradual and sure departure to StalwartUm and ail tirat the narno implies.
