The announcement that Taylor Ntrau
der would be brought into the United
States District Court on a writ of habeat
corpus,served to attract more than the or
dinary number of visitors than usually
honor this Oonrt with their presence. He
was promptly brought into Court by Sher
iff Tingle at the hour designated in the
i writ, but owing to the absence of Judge
Jackson, who was detained, the Court was
adjourned over until 2 o'clock in the
Mr. Strauder is no doubt* the best1
know colored criminal except Dred Scott.
From the peculiarities of his case and the
technicalities involved, his name appears
on the dockets of no less than seven
courts, from the lowest tribunal by which
hta case could be tried, to the supreme ar
biters of the laws of the land. It is cele
brated on account of the constitutional
questions raised by his counsel, Messrs.
Davenport and Dovener, who havo more
than faithfully attended to the interests
of their client. Of the questions involved
iu this cose it is not necessary to speak, as
the public are already familiar with the
points through the frequent publication
of them as the case progressed.
Strauder has had au eventful prison life.
On the 18th of April, 1872, he committed
the deed for which he is suffering punish
ment. For one week he was at large
alone with his conscience?having been
arrested on April 25tb, iu Allegheny City,
and from that day to this he has been con
lined in the county jail, over eight long
and weary years. When he apneared in
court this morning he did not look anv
the worse for his confinement. The wri
ter interviewed him three years ago, when
he looked much worse, but at that time
ho did not have such a hopeful view of
his case. Yesterday he appeared fresb
looking, and sanguine. He wae dressed
in a plain black suit, and wore on immac
ulate shirt front.
Whatever can be said of Strauder noth
ing can bo brought forward against the
conduct of his prison life. He soon be
came a changed man and was trusted by
his keepers, and has done good service foi
the county in frustrating several attempts
at jail breaking and in making himself
handy in caring for the unfortunate and
insane who were the wards of the county,
lie has borne his lot patiently and uncom
plainingly and has never given his jailors
any cause for "-ouble. He has also im
firoved his time ui self instruction, master
ug resdiug, writing and arithmetic. He
has great fondneBS for history, and has be
come since his incarceration a well in
formed man on ull general topics. Twice
condemned to pay the highest penality oi
the law he has outlived one of his counsel,
the late Geo. 0. Davenport, who argued
his case before the United States Supreme
Court. That the man has repented his
crime no one doubts; that he had provo
cation is admitted, but not in entire justi
fication of the iieed. He has hung be
tween despair and hope and paid in pari
the penalty of the * law, and by his good
conduct has laid a claim to some con
sideration at the bands of tho law and
might ask that the*iusticej meted out tc
him he tempered with mercy.
In thnafternoon Mr. Strauder was a?aiE
brongut .'Z!? Ooort antl was represented oy
his counsel Capt. i/uvou?F* '"ied t.he
case was called Assistant United KtaicS
Attorney George B. Caldwell, stated tbat
be bad thought General Goff would be
present to attend to tbo case, and tbat in
hie absence ho would hesitate somewhat
about proceeding. He said tbat he bad
not had an opportunity to examine the
papers in the case, but if the other side
wi'blied to argue the motion to be made he
would not ask for a postponement.
Judge Jackson stated that it was very a
importantcase, and would perhaps involve
the consultation of authorities, and he did
not feel like hurriedly disposing of the
Capt. Dovener replied that he wished
to argno the motion, and would ask that
tbe prisoner be admitted to bail. If the
other side was not prepared he would will
ingly agree that they reply to-morrow.
The Court, however, finally set the case
for this morning, but on the appeal of Gen.
White, who appeared as counsel for Sher
iff Tingle, the ease was further postponed
until this afternoon at 2 o'clock, and Strau
der was again taken back to jail.

full turnout of the Republicans, and as a
coneequence very few of the male popula

Measures were also taken lookiug towards

Miss Emma Abbott alight from a 'bus
j yesterday morning and retreat into the
McLare House. Interviewing is his forte
when he can proponnd the questions and
manufacture the answers, and relying
upon his peculiar ability, and having con*
fidence In his powers he commenced:.
, "Miss Abbott, as you have visited
Wheeling several times, you are peculiar*
ly fitted to pass an intelliitent opinion up
on it?how do you like it?"
The sweet singer was completely non
plussed by the originality of the inquiry,
and when a few fleeting moments baa
passed she recovered sufficiently to an
swer In the moBt unaffected terms, "Like
it! why, I like it very well?all but your
smoke, and?well, all but your emoke."
The reassured scribe iu a wild moment
plunged into the spirit of the interview
with renewed frenzy and asked the fail
personator of Juliet "what the prospect!
for the season were?"
"The brightest," Bhe answered. "W(

"Have you any favorites among the pro

moments of embarrassment had flowi
"Yes, but k won't do to mention them.'
"Poor Neilson's dead!" murmured tin
young man reflectively, as a few seconds o
gloom settled over him.
"Yes," said the fair Virginia. "At leas'
they say she is buried."
The spirits of the dreaming young mat
suddenly revived, and with a recklessnesi

of, rushed on a subject that will take year
to properly stud^. In a few rash word
ho committed himself, and he was com
polled to proceed witu the inauisition
we will, however, do ourself the higl
bonor to state that we did not precipitate
the climax unblushingly. "Miss Abbott,'
we suppose you have seen the elegies?be]
pardon, the epitaphs, written by the wild
untutored minds of the West, and head
lined 'The Abbott kiss?' "
"Yes, on several occasions, I havt
noticed the mild effusions of detailed mini'
superinduced, no doubt, by the memor;
nf past experience."
,lVery delightful, I am suie," bluntly
asserted the opinionated young Romo-o.
."Oh, the memory, of course."
"Speaking of the kiss, 1 believe it ha

Lrumus Ward mid ihi **Hlebli?n l?fft*
kVuWitfon (Ittd.) Gaintta. .
In a Louisville, Ky., hotel one day, Ar
temua Ward vu introduced to a colonel
who had commanded a Mississippi regi
ment in the war. Artemua in hia way
'?that wa? childlike and bland," aald:
"What Michigan regiment did yon com
mand, Colonel?" Then it waa that the
"Colonel" spun like a top and awore like
a aallor, until paclfled snfllciently to bear
an explanation. Artemua with surprise
observed, that he "waa alwaya getting
things mixed about the war." It ia alwaya
unfortunate to get tliiuga mixed, but never
more ao than w hen one ia sick. Then it ia
that the right thing in tlio right place ia
wanted more than at any other time in life,
or under any other circumatancea, It ia a
pleasure for ua to note in this connection,
the experience of our esteemed fellow citi
zen, Col. 8amuel H. Taylor, who aa ia well
known doeanotget things mixed. In a
recent communication he writea: "I do
hereby certify that I suffered very much
from Rheumatism and Neuralgia during
the fall of 1870, and tried many remediea
with little if any good results. I had
heard of St. Jacobs Oil, and conoluded to
try it; more as an experiment than with
any hope of good results. I can with great
pleasure commeud it to others, for the rea
son that I know it cured me." Colonel
Taylor, by the way, was at oue time Post
master at Cumberland, Mary laud.
