he was unable to move, and he saw his boy
sink before his eyes, crying upon him for help.
The father barely escaped death himself, and

Thi Washington Defalcation. It is now
said that if any moneys have beoa misapplied
by the person recently arrested upon the order
of the Secretary of the Treasury, the loss will
fall upon Major Bowman, U.S. A., who is
Superintending Engineer of Construction for
the Treasury Department. In that capacity he
disburses moneys, for the security of which he
furnishes adequate bonds. Subordinate to
him in tho praotical exeoution of this respon
sible trust was Major French, his olassmate at
Went Point, but who, after graduation, was
engaged as Civil Engineer in several important
railroad enterprises of the country. It is sup
posed that the amount ot default will turn out
to be small, the voucher rendered said to be
a duplionto of one already paid being for
some $1,200 only. ' As Major French is a man
of considerable property, that, of oourse, will
be applicable to satiety any lossos that may
have arisen from improper transactions, whether

setting fire to the clothing of one of them and
hooting off one of their guns. The lightning
stuuned tho whole of them severely, so that it
is not known how long they remained insensi

senses, MoMaster was - so badly .burnt that
they left him for dead, and went home for

morning, and found him still alive, but hor

some twelve days, when he expired.

her treasury. We think a man who ean not

Do not all denominations act upon the prin

christian world that of a plurality of wives
is the system of your Church acceptable to
the majority of its women?
B. Y. They could not be more averse to
it than I was when it was first revealed in

accept it, as I do, as the will of God.
H. G. How general is Dolvtramv

wives belonging to any one man?
B. Y. I have fifteen; I know of no one
who has more; hut some of those sealed to

Death' op Childm" in New Yobi. The
New York Exprttt, Sligo:
There must be something "rotten in Dan.
mark," when, out of seven hundred deaths in
this elty, last week, upward of Jive hundred
were nnder ten years of age. Swill milk. nn.
ripe or rotten fruit, bad nursing, and the foil
atmosphere of the filthy "tenant houses," are
doubtless the teeds of this harvest of death .

A Mission Man and False Spirits.
The Montpelier (Vermont) i'miimn tells the
following story : .
On Friday afternoon, August 5, Mr. Thomas
Corr, while working with others at bsying,
near Berlii Pond, suddenly disappeared from
the hay-field. Not returning at night, fears
were entertained for bis safety, and a search
was soon instituted by bit friends and neigh
bors, which was kept up for teveral of the suo
eeeding days. The waten skirting the thores
of the pond were critically examined and ex
plored, the adjacent woods and mountains were
thoroughly tooured, but still no trace of the
missing man could be found. At longth epirit
power was invoked, and a professed spirit
medium revealed that he had drowned himself
in the pond; and tbo very spot whore he en
tered, as well as the place where he finally sank
to rise no more were described - and pointed
out with a minuteness not to be questioned.
An important link, however, to the full con
firmation of the revalation was wanting, In the
nondisoovery of the body at the plaoe speci
fied. But it was alleged that the spirit me
dium was exhausted and needed rest ; and the
people wero assured that if they would wait
until Sunday morning, (Augutt 14) at half past
eight o'clook, they should, unless the body pre
viously rose to tho surface, bo directed to the
exaot tpot whore it lay. Accordingly, arrange
ments were made lor dragging the pond, and
on Sunday morning, before the hour appointed,
quite a orowd of people had assembled tt tho
drowning-place, to aid in the reoovery of the
body. The joy and astonishment of tho mul
titude aa they were Informed that Mr. Carr,
alive and in his proper person, had, tome fif
teen minutes previously, returned alone from
the mountain, and was then In the house near
bj oan be better imagined than described.
Mr. Carr is a man some fifty yoars of age, and
has previously sometimes imagined that people
wished to kill him, and that he must flee from
them. It would, therefore, seem that in one
of these abberations of mind he strayed off to
the mountains, where he had remained, sub
sisting on berries, and, it may be, tho milk of
cows in the adjaoent pastures, until some par
tial ray of returning reason Induced him to
come back to his friends. His appearance on
his return was pale, haggard, and oaroworn.
He could give no connooted account of him
self or his wanderings, but says he has been
absent only one day and night, tnstoad of nine
days, and that be twice picked and ate berries
when hungry.
Murder and Lynching in Texas.
A correspondent of the Galveston ' Sect,
witting from Corsicana, Texas, July 20, says:
A negro man belonging to a Mr. Blantou,
of Kllis County, was hung at Dresden, in
this county, more than a week since, by the
concurrence of a large number of citizens.
His master, I understand, was promised the
compensation which tho State nllows. The
negro was hung for the murder of a young
man by the name of English, on his way to
Fort Worth, the place of his residence. . it
took place nn Saturday, evening as tho negro
wim going from his home to the house of his
wife. English was a stranger, and tho only
motive tho negro had for the horrid act was
robbery. Ho obtained but a few dollars.
The body of English was buried in a small
hole, and was accidentally discovered nearly
a weok after the murder, and for some days
no clue could be obtained to lead to the per
petrator, although the most rigid efforts wore
made. Finally, some clothing belonging to
the murdered man; found in possession of
the negro, unraveled . the mystery. The
negro confcsied to tho whole transaction;
said he had accomplices, but would not re
veal them, and died, as ha had lived, a most
hardened and abandoned wretch. To attract
buzzards from the body' a hoTse was killed
near the place. , It is believed he had no ac
complice; that the work was entirely his
own. He said he gave the man a blow, as
he passed him in the road, and then stran
gled him with bis. hands. Mr. English was
a smuu man, nineteen or twenty years old;
and tho negro very large and athletic. ".
Why American Railroad do not Pay.
Dr. Mack&y, in his new book, "Life and
Liberty in America," gives the following rea
son why American railroads do not pay:
Anothor, and very important reason why
Amoriean railroads do not pay, notwithstanding
their cheapness of construction, is not suffi
ciently known in Englsnd to the capitalists
who have advanced their money to make them;
It is, that there appears to be no sufficient, or
any efficient; check upon the accounts. The
stations, or stopping-places, are not walled In
us with us; the taking of a tiokct is not imper
ative upon the traveler, though ho who enters
a train without a ticket has to pay ten per
cent, excess to the conductor. The great fim't,
is toat there is no check upon the oonduotur.
ne travels with the train all the way, collects the
tickets and the money, and if he be dishonest,can
put intoh is own pockets all the cash that has
come into his hands. Aoondnotorof this kind
was threatened with dismissal by the directors of
a line. "You aro foolish to dismiss me," he re
pliod. "I have got my gold watch, my chain,
my diamond pin, and my fair lady. If you
turn me away, the next man will have to get
theso things at your expense. Potter let me
"He is Only a Printer."
Tho following tribute to the noble preserva
tive art we find in a ootemporary, and we com
mend its strong contrast to the intelligent
"He is only a printer." Suoh wat the sneer
ing remark of a leader in the circle of aristoc
racythe codfish quality. Who wot the Earl
of Stanhope? lie was only a printer. What
is Prince Ircderiok William, just married to
the Princess Royal of England? Ho, too, was
a printer. Who was William Caxton, one of
the fathers of literature? He wot only a
printer. Who were G. P. Morris, N.P. Willit,
J. Gules, C. Kiohardson, J. Harper, Horace
Greeley, Bayard Taylor, Charles Diokcns,
Tliiors, Jerrold, George Prentice and Senators
Dix, Cameron and Niles?. They, too, were
printers. What was Benjamin Franklin? He,
alio, was a printer. And last, though not
least, who is James Buchanan, who oooupies
the most enviable position on earth? Only a
printer. Every one oan not be a printer
