ment of bis examination of tho house on (he
night of the murder. Thero wcro uo marka of
violence on the dcors and vndows. Thc only
window open was that from which the deceased
had been thrown iuto the yard. In Mrs. Hill's
room he found in a wardrobo $320 in notes and
a diamond cluster ring and earrings. All th.
evidence yet given disproves tho theory under?
stood to be the basis of Ibo defence, that tho
deceased was murd Jred by a robber who entered
tho house to steal money, which they say ehe
was kuown to carry about her person.
Kemeral of Disqualifications.
A movement of an important and pacifica?
tory character has just been introduced into
the Senato by a leading Republican. Senator
Ferry, of Connecticut, presents a bill for the
removal of all disqualifications imposed on ac?
count of participation iu the "rebellion'' by the
third section of tho fourteenth article. In a
?peech of great power, General Ferry niado an
argument wbieh aroused general attontion,
aud evidently has predisposed senators of all
opinieas to discuss iu a favorable temper the
proposition he make?.
Mr. Ferry urges his bill upon the ground that
the class against which tho disqualifying sec?
tion was intended to bo a protection is no
longer to be deemed a&danserons. Thc speedy
inauguration of General Grant insures peace,
teaches and subdues whatever rebellions spirit
remains, incarnates in his pert-an the idea that
the nation will protect itself at any cost, and
thoa compsl all persons to obey ila potent will.
To continue rebel disqualification is to make
martyrs of those who como under the ban.
To remove it is at onco to remove from tho
disaffected their chief element of strength.
The senator declared that tho samo reasons
lcd to this conclusion as led him lo desire thc
passage of a ceustitutional amendment pro?
hibiting Sta tea from disfranchising men on
account of ''race, color or previous condition."'
Tho American idea, he said, was to include all
in the exercise if full citizenship.
Thoro is no doubt a strong desire to adopt
6uch a measure as that proposed, but it will in
ah probability not bo acted upon at this ses?
sion. Tho House could not be induced to pass
it now, cvon if tho Sonato did. By next wiutcr
it is believed that its adoption will bo certain.
DISTRACTION OF THE RADICAL ELEMENTS-GEN?
RE Al, GRANT'S POSITION- RECONSTRUCTION IN
The Washington correspondent of tho Balti?
more Gazitte writes :
Facts have corns to light here which threa?
ten te distract still more the Radical elements,
and bring upon the Presidcut olect Radical de?
nunciations even before he has assumed the
responsibilit es of tbe Hx^cutivo office. Agr?ai
huo and cry in and out of Congress followed
the action of the Georgia Legislature in ex?
pelling :ho negro members, and Congressional
intcrfureuce was invoked by those who havo
determined not to bo satisfied with any re?
construction which gives thc wbite popu?
lation of tho South a chanco to recov?
er their lost prosperity and happiness.
This action of the Legislature of Goor
cia has boon seized upon ns a pretext
to remand thal Seato back into a condition of
military despotism. Rccoubli uclion is to be
reconstructed according to tho now pro?
gramme, but before this is accomplished Gen?
eral Grant's opposition will havo to bc met
and overcome. There is good authority for
stating that thc President elect is not only
opposed to tho whole proposion, but that ho
iully anticipated precisely what occurred in
tho Georgia Legislature, and that that occur?
rence had the sanction of thu military. This
may scarcely seem credible to the shriekers fer
neiiro supremacy in the South; nevertheless
the fact is vouched tor by gentlemen high in
authority, aud who aro in positions to know.
They say that General Grant not only
anticipated all that has occu-.rcd in the
in the South, but that he never would fiver or
sanction any further Congressional meddling
with the reconstructed States. This presents
a plaia, broad issuo with thc Radicals upon
the very throshold of the new administration,
and ono, too, of tho greatest magnitude. The
unexpected position assumed by Geucral
Grant on this question of "reconstructing re?
construction" furnishes tho topic of conversa?
tion in high official circles to night, and the
Georgia delegates in Congress are cncouiazcd
to hope that their State will yet bo saved from
the threatened calamity of being again placed
under military rulo.
GENERAL QRANTS FUTUUE POLICY.
A Washington telegram to thc New York
Senator Morrill, of Maine, says that while he
is satisfied General Grant will "idopt a line of
policy more or less conservative, ho behoves
that his Cabinet will be composed of men whose
politics are sharply defined. He will tako his
advisers fi om the ranks of tboso who firmly ad?
here to these established opinions-first, that
wo had the right to make war against the se?
ceded States; aud, BCMmdly, that we had the
right under the war-making' power assured to
the conqueror to do what we havo done up to
this timo. General Graut will form such an
administration as will give assurance lo thc
loval people of the North that the laws will be
faithfully and firmly administered, and sweep
away all uneasy de usions from the niiudp of tho
Southern peoplo that tho Government of the
united States will fail to RITO the full measure
J i" protection to all its citizens, while, at thc
same time, it will domaud the observance of
law and order and the suppression o? disloyalty

Et great way toward improviug the condition of

CANNIBALISM IN TUE CAES.
BY MARK TWAIN.
I visited St. Louis lately, and on my way
West, after changing cars at Terra Houtc, Ind.,
a mild, benevolent looking gentleman of about
forty-fivo or may be fifty, cime in at ono of tbe
way statious and sat down oesido me. Wo
talked together pleasantly on various subjects
for an hour, pernaps. aud I found bim exceed?
ingly interesting and entertaining. When ho
learned that I was from Washington, ho imme?
diately began to ask questions about various
public men, and about Congressional nffaira;
and I saw very shortly that I was conversing
with a man who was perfectly familiar with the
ins and outs of political life at the capital,
even to thc ways and manners and customs of
procedure of Senators and Representatives iu
the chambers of tho National Legislature.
Presently two men haired near us for a singlo
moment," and one said to tho other:
"Harris, if you'll do that tor mo, Til never
forget you, my boy."
My new comrade's eyes lighted pleasantly.
The wr,rds had touched'upon a happy moraory,
i ihought. Then his face settled into thought?
fulness-a'most into gloom. He turned to me
and said :
" Let me tell you a story-let mo give you a
secret chapter of my lite-a chapter that has
never boen refcircdto by ma since its events
transpired. Listen patiently, and promise that
you will not interrupt me."
I saul 1 would not, and ho related tho follow?
ing strange adventure, speaking sometimes
with melancholy, but always with fooling and
TUE STRANGER'S NARRATIVE.
O i tho 19th of December, 1853, I started
from St. Louis in thc cveniug hound train for
Chicago, i'licro were only twenty-four passen?
ger, all told. There weie no ladies aud no
children. Wc were in excellent spirits, and
pleasant acquaintances were soon formed. Tho
journey bado fair to be a happy enc, an" uo in?
dividual in the party, I think, had even the
\ agilest presentiment of the horrors we were
soon to undergo.
At ll P. BL it besan to snow hard. Shortly
after leaving the village of Weldon, we entered
upon that tremendous prairie solitude that
Streiches its leagues on laitues of houseless
dreariness far away toward tho Jubilee Settle?
ments. The winds, unobstructed by trees or
bille, or even vagrant rocks, whirled fiercely
across thc level desert, driving the falling snow
before it like spray from tho crested waves of
a stormy sea. Tho tnow was deepening fast,
and we know by tho diminished speed of the
tiaiti that the ongino was ploughing through
it with steadily increasing difficulty. Indeed,
it almost carno to a dead halt sometimes in the
midst of great drifts that piled themselves like
colossal graves across tho track. Conversation
began to flag. Cheerfulness gavo place to
grave concern. The possibility of being im?
prisoned in the Biiow, on tho bleak prairie,
fifty milos from any hou3o, presoated itself to
every mind, and exlcuded its depressing influ?
ence over every spirit.
At two o'clock in tin morning I was aroused
out of au easy slumber by the ceasing of all
motion about me. The appalling truth flashed
upon me iu3tantlv-wo were captives in a snow?
drift ! "All bauds to the rescue." Every man
sprans to obey. Out into the wild niglit, tho
pitchy darkness, tho billowing snow, the dri?
ving storm, ovory soul leaped with tl o con?
sciousness that a moment lost now might
bring destruction to us all. Shovels, hands,
boards-anything, everything, that could dis?
place snow-was brought into instant requisi?
tion. It was a weird picture, that small com?
pany ol frantic men fighting tho han liing
snows, half in the blackest shadow and half in
tho angry light of the locomotivos reflector.
Oue short hour 6uflicad to provo the uttor
uselessness of our efforts. Thc storm barri?
caded ihe track with ii dozen drifts while wo
dug ono away. And worso thu this, it was
discovered that thc last prand charge tho on?
gino had made upon the enemv had broken the
fore-and-aft shaft of tho driving wheel I With
a freo track before us wo should have still been
helpless. Wo entered tho car wearied with la?
bor and very sorrowful. Wo gathered about
the skoves, and gravely canvassed eur situa?
tion. Wc had no provisions whatever-in ibis
lay our chief distress. Wo could not fro*ao,
for there was a good supply of -vood in thc
tender. This was our only comfort. Tho dis?
cussion ended at last i.i accepting thedisheart
euiiiR decision of tho conductor, that it would
be death for any man to attempt to travel fifty
miles en feot"through s.iow like that. We
could not send for he p, and even if wo could,
it could not come. Wc must submit and wait,
as patiently as we might, succor or st irvation !
I think the stoutest heart lhere felt a momen?
tary chill when these words were utteied.
Wilkin aa hour conversation subside I to a
lo.v murmur here ami tliore about the car,
caught fitfully between the rising and falling
of tho blast ; thc lamps grow dim ; and a ma?
jority of the castaways settled themsclv s
among the flickering -shadows to think-to for?
get the present if lucy could-to sleep if they
The eternal night-it seemed eternal to ns
wore its lagging hours away at last, and thc
cold gray dawn broke in the cast. As the light
grew stronger tho passengers tagon lo stir
and give signs of life, enc ai\cr auother, and
cich in turu pus.ied his slouched hat up from
his forehead, stietehed his stiifoucd limbs,
and glauced em at the windows upon the
cheerless prospect. It was cheerless mdocil !
-not a living thing visiblo anywhere, not a
human habitation ; nothing but a vast wluto
desert ; uplifted sheets ol'?now drifting hither
aud thither before thc wind-a world of eddy
iug flakes shutting out the firmament above."
All day we moped about the cars, siying
little, thinking much. Another lingering,
dreary night-and huuger.
Another dawning-another day of silence,
sadness, wasting hunger, hopeless watching
for succor that could not como. A night ol'
restless slumber, rilled with dreams of feast ii e
-wakings distressed with Ilia gtia.viugs wi

Messrs. Sawyer and Bowen Wire also offered,

Mr. A. L. Rasc?me, of Ohio : "I move that

Mr. Sawyer: "Continuion, I protest curucstly

Buckuiiubter-a poor stick of a vagabond, ibat
wasn't any good for company and no account
for breakfast. Wu wore glad wo got him
elected before relief came.
''And so the blessed rebol' did come atlast."
Yes, it came ono bright summer morning,
just after the electien. John Murphy was thc
choice, mid there Hever was a botter, I am
willing to testify ; but John Murphy came
home with us iu tho traiu to succor us, aud
lived to inarrv thc widow Harris
" R::l?Ct Ot-"
Relict of our first choice. Ho married her,
and is respected and prosperous yet. Ah, it
was like a novel, sir-it waa like a romaneo.
This is my stopping place, sit; 1 must bid you
good-bye. Any time you eau make it conveni?
ent to tarry a day or two with mo. I shall be
glad to have you. I like you, sir; I have con?
ceived au affection for you. 1 could like you
as well as I liked Harris himself, sir. Good
day, sir, aud a pleasant j urncy.
Ho was jone. I never felt "so sinnncl, so
di?trc!-s;-d, BO bewildered in my lifo. But in
Div soul I was glad he was gone. With all his
gentleness of manner and his soft voice, I
shuddered whenever lie turned hts hungry pye
upon me; and when I heard that I had won
his perilous affection, and that J stood almost
willi th:: Me Harris in his esteem, mv heart
fairly Blood still !
I w.is bewildered beyond description. I dui
not drubt his word; I could nut question a sn?
ide ?tow in a rta;onie it so stamped with thc
earnestness of truth as his; but its dreadful de
tails overpowered mo, and 'brow my thoughts
into hopsloss confusion.
I saw tho conductor looking at mc. I sr.i;l,
"Who is that maii'f"
"Ho was a member of Congress once, ami a
good one. lint he got caught in a snow drift
in the cars, and like to have bern starved IO
death. He got so frostbitten and iivzcti up
generally, and used np (or want of something
to ea', that lie was sick and out of his head for
two or lliree mouths afterwards. He is ?til
right now, only ho is a monomaoi ic, anti wbtsu
he gets on ?hat old subject bo never stops till
he has eaten up that whole car load of people
ho talks a!.o.;t. Ho would have flntslitd the
whole crowd by this lime, only ho had to get
out hi re. He has got their names as pat tts
A, B, ?. When he gets them all calcu up nut
him self lu: always says: 'Thou, thc hour fur
th* u*ua! election for breakfast having arrived,
and there being no opposition, I was duly
elected, after which, there being no objections
offered, I resigned. Thus lam here.' "
I felt inexpressibly relieved to know that I
had oaly boen listening to the vagaries of a
harmless madman, instead cf the genuine ex
perier.oe of a bloodthirsty cannibal.

Nature, when struggling with disease, indicate
unmistakably thc kind of assistance she requires.
In cases > f nervou- weakness and general debilite,
the feeble pulse, the lack-luilio eye, the attenuated
frame, the david muscles, the ma'auclio'y visage,
iulotiu os us plainly as if each organ bad a ; o' gue,
that a medicated stimulant is needed. It does not
require tue aid of a medical oduca.iuu to un.'erstand
tbis dumb appeal Or new vl^or, from au exhau-ted
system. Every reader of :hota li uv J C%T\ compre?

be neglected. Respond to it promptly by oom
raeuclng a course ot 110-TETTER'S STOMACH

excellence the properties ot a STIUULANT, an IN

the ap brits to improve. Persevere, and a complete
revivification of the depressed animal and mental
power- is certain. In cares of dyspepsia and bili?
ousness, tbe fame salutary results will be obtained,
Thc appetite will ravive, tho sallowness of the *kin
di yapDCar, and all tho distressing symptoms which
acu mpsRy disorders cf tbe s tonase i and liver
will rapidly subside. The cold of winter often iu
ien>ines taese complaints by shacking the perspira?
