On the scaffold he said the murdered man's wife instigated the murder. Hhe is now in the insane asylum. Martin makes a full confession of his part in the crime. When the drop fell, his hetyi was entirely severed from the body, which fell lifeless to the ground. —A few days ago a mechanic in the railroad machine shops at Burlington, Iowa, had half of his right hand blown off in a very singular and unaccountable manner. A locomotive that was under repairs had one of ita Hue# blocked on both sides. In the attempt to remove the block it burst out with a noise like the discharge of a cannon. The man, besides the loss of his hand, was badly stunned i\nd had to he carried home. The singu lar part of this accident is in the fact that not tho least heat had been in the boiler for more than a month. —The small-pox was recently raging as an epidemic in the vicinity of Cascade, Iowa. The disease could have been checked when the first case was discov ered had the proper measures been taken, but instead of burying the bodv of the first fatal case quietly, and at night, the corpse was followed to the grave by a large funeral procession, and six pall bearers. The pall-bearers at last accounts were sick, as well as several who attended the funeral. One of the jiall-bearers was a baker, and, alter helping to put the body in the coffin and bury it, he went home and to work as usual, with results that might have been expected. He was a few days ago on the verge of the grave with small pox, and so were nearly all of his customers. —The Heading (l'a.) Ragle says: "The iron ore trade along the East Pennsyl vania Railroad has been gradually in creasing during the past few years, until at this time the shipments amount to about 600 ton# per day. Two trains are regularly employed in carrying this im mense quantity, one running went and the other east. Those going toward Allen town aro the largest.

There are 580 colored schools now organized in the State, with 542 colored teachers. "I rejoice," says a London School Board philosopher, "in the decline of the old brutal and tyrannical system of teaching, which, however, did succeed in enforcing habits of application but the new, as it seems to me, is training up a race of men who will be incapable ot doing anything which is disagreeable to them." —The Comnrttee on Rules of the Wash ington Board of School Trustees report that it is not prepared to hazard the ex pression of an opinion that corporal pun ishment is not sometimes necessary, and that its proper administration may not re sult in the best interests of the pupil so punished, and of the schools. That this mode of punishment is much too often resorted to by young and inexperienced teachers it does not gainsay, but that it should be absolutely and entirely prohib ited it cannot admit. —The Schenectady Star says in regard to corporal punishment that "We believe that it will not do, under our system of public schools, to deprive the teacher of the right to punish boys who can in no other way be made to obey the rules of the school. We do not believe that sus pension from school is a sufficient remedy it is too often just what a bad boy likes, and we do not believe school authorities have a right to «xpel permanently, until all other remedies have been tried, and OM! of these remedies should be corporal punish men!." —In general, churches are not properlv ventilated. The chronic "Sunday head ache" is by no means a myth, nor an in genious excuse for those who are not lovers of the sanctuary. The usuai cus tom is to close the church doors and win dows—if by good fortune the latter have been open at all—as soon as the throng of worshipers have passed the thresh old. Then the vitiated air is left to cool and settle near the floor. On Saturday, or an hour fir two before the morning ser vice on Sunday, the doors and windows are opened for a little while, but not long enough to change the atmosphere. A far more effectual method is to air the house thoroughly when tlx services of the day are ended, at which time the cooler out door air will more quickly displace that within. And a second ventilation is also useful. HANHAFOBD & THOMPSON, Snbscriptioij Book Publishers, Chicago, have in press tin exhaustive History of the FAHMEKX' MOVE MENT, by Hon. J.
