Developments—Habeas Corpus Refused.
, ,
... . .
The Memphis Evening Argut of the 10th
instant has the following in regard toPALusa,
the alleged acoomplioe of Bbow in the Har
per's Ferry affair:
The late arrest and commitment of W. R,
Palmer, for alleged oompllcitv in Brown's In
surrection movements, engross the attention of
Mimosa every ooay to-day, and but little else
seems to be thought of. The letter found in
the railroad car, although quite lengthy,
amounts in substance to about what we men
tioned yesterday. The letter states that the
negroes throughout the most of the Southern
States wero ready for insurrection, and that
Arkansas and Tennessee were the States in
whioh to strike the first blow; also, that Palmer
had been tampering with tbe negroes in the
vicinity of his plantatian, who expressed their
willingness to escape to a free State whenever
an opportunity offered.
. We this morning understood that an effort
would be m ado by Palmer's counsel to secure
his release on a writ of habea corjnu, but up
to 3 o'clock this afternoon nothing had been
effected. We presume the letter referred to
abovo is all that warrants the authorities in
retaining him, and we doubt its being evi
dence sufficient to convict him, unless, in
deed, its author be found, and its statements
corroborated. ' Other foots may vet come to
light which will control the subsequent ac
tion of the government in the case, and until
a reasonable time elapses for further devel
opments, we presume all efforts to discharge
Palmer from custody will be uaeless.
The Argv of the mbsequent day, the 11th
Inst., observes:
The Criminal Court refused this morning to
release Palmer on a writ of habtcu eorptu, and
he will be retained In custody. This is per
haps tbe wisest oourse that oouid be pursued,
taking into consideration all the circumstances
oonnected with the oase. Although every one
admits that the present evidenoe againat
Palmer being without corroboration would
be totally insufficient to eonviot him of the
charge alleged, there is still a deep feeling in
the oommunity in regard to the affair, and
trivial oiroumstances are daiiv coming to light
whioh decidedly prejudice the pablio mind
against the prisoner. For the present Palmer
had better remain where he is.
Unnatural Avaeiob. An effort has actu
ally been made outside of Charlestown, in
Virginia, to turn the exeoution of Ossawato
mie Brown and his fellow-conspirators to ac
count by getting up a monster excursion from
all parts of the country of those who have a
sufficiently morbid appetite for the horrible
to induce them to desire to be present. Mr.
Simon Perham, not without notoriety as a
showman, has conceived this happy idea,
and recently addressed the President of the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad inquiring as to
the amount of reduction upon the regular rate
of fair which would be conceded to his excur
sionists. Mr. Garrett, not thinking the oc
casion a proper one, or that the people who
would travel hundreds of miles so see five or
six criminals executed exactly the class of
visitors who would be agreeable to the Vir
ginia authorities, has caused that opinion to
be made known to Mr. Perham.
Anothee Conversion to thb Broad Chdboh.
A Massachusetts correspondent, in a pri
vate letter, sends the N. Y. Evening Pott the
following intelligence, which will create a
sensation in the theological circles : " Prof.
Huntington, ' of Harvard College, ' has just
written to hie brother Theophiluu, in Hadley,
announcing that he has embraced the doc
trine of the Trinity, and indicating that he
finds great peace and comfort in his new
opinions. What denomination he will enter
is not stated, but he evidently admires, like
Br. Bellows, the ceremonial system of the
Episcopal Church."
Lifi Inceeaskd by ah Income. In 1826,
when the senior Quinoy was Mayor of Boston,
a contract was made between the oity authori

she should convey to the olty a certain strip
of land required for some oity improvement in
consideration of tho sum of one thousand dol
lars per annum, to be paid to her dur
ing her lifetime, and twenty thoasand to
her heir on her death. The pensioner lived
until within the last few days, when she died,
at the age of ninety, having drawn her salary
for thirty-three years.
Xoud and Mystibiocb Rsposr. Last week
a very loud and heavy report was heard in
MurfreeBboro', Tenn., and in the country for
miles in every direction, resembling the noise
caused by tho firing of heavy artillery or the
explosion of a powder magazine, followed by
a noise resembling distant thunder, which
lasted about a minute. There are manv con
jectures as to what produced this Breat noise.
some mini it was caused by ttie tailing of a
meteoric stone; others that it was the noise
attendant upon earthquakes. . .
Cowhides and CorriNS Again Homicide in
Virginia. Rufua Ayres was shot dead on
Friday evening, at Reotortown, Fauquier
County, Va., by Wesley Philips and his son.
Ayres drew a pistol on the elder Philips and
attempted to oowhide him; Philips fled, but
afterward returned in oompany with bis son,
found, and made an attack on Ayes, who shot
at them as they approaohed, whon both fired
on him at the same time with a shot gun and
rifle, and killed him, the shots taking effeot in
the heart.

now only the shadow of what it formally was.
Leon Afrieanus sjs that "it is a oity larger
than Paris, .where the King has his palace,
whioh is more sumptuous and more magnificent
than any other in the world." At the com
mencement of the seventeenth oentnry Mo
rocco had a population of 000; it now scarcely
reaches 30,000. The oity was founded in
1073; its walls, which attest its former splen

tr pierced by elaven double gates flanked
by tovrera ''gardens and rains fill up the

regard to its' architecture to the other cities of

Mortality in New Yobk There wore four
hundred and two deaths in New York City
during the last week, boing a slight inorease
over the number as exhibited by the returns
for the corresponding weeks in 1857 and 1658.
This is accounted for, the 2ime says, by tho
recklessness which tbe lower classes of the
population exhibit in moving into tenement
houses before the walls are sufficiently dry.
" The Heavt Gale it the South. The New

cession of gaies in the Gulf, appears to have
been one of tbe moat extensive and prolonged

the Mexican coast it lasted ten days, and none
of the great sailing traoks appear to have been
without a visit from it. Aa yet we hear of no
serious disasters.
The Saliqun Law. A distinguished writer
on the history of women says, that though
the French will not suffer a woman to sway
their scepter, they can not hinder her from
ruling the monarch who holds it: a case
which has so ofton happened that, in spite of
the Salique law, they have been more under
the direction of women than the neighboring

When it was known that the Grand Jury at
Cleveland found no bill against Hartman,

most of them of the blackest hue, collected
about the Court-house, intending to mob him,
and would have done so had he not taken
hurried refuge in the jail.

From Washington.
Washington, November 16. The Board
appointed by the Navy Department to examine
Maynard's breech-loadiog carbine, say they
think it recommends itaelf to the teat of the
naval service.
Senator Douglas's physicians oonslder his
condition considerably improved this morn

Upward of twenty members of Congress are

the Detnooratio and Utioa nominee for Secre
tary of State, over Leavenworth, by 204 ma

Dora Sbaw in Anothsr Difficulty at Al

has had a diflioulty with toe manager of the
Gaiety at Albany, and left the theater where

publishes a card saying s Owing to the linper-
ieetnees ot mr.B packman (tbe manager) in tbe
"Daughter of the Regiment," I took the lib
erty of an aotreas aud mentioned to him his
shortcomings. His answer was an insult, such
as no waman of delicacy eould brook, and the
consequence waa my withdrawal. i ;
The manager also publishes a statement,
and after denying that he had insulted her ia
any way remurks: During hor whole en
gagement sho took particular pains to make
herself as dissgreeablo as possible. very
attention has been paid her coming, as she
does, without any clnira. upon our profession
as a star not even being perfect in tho au
thor, on the night mentioned in her article.
Sho induced me to announce the Daughter of
the Regiment, which called together a very
solect aud fashionable house ; but they cer
tainlymust have been disappointed at wit
nessing the most "horrid maiming of both
words and music." The prompter made
many abortive attempts; to aidher, but in vain.
She did not even know the context.
China as a Cotton-obowing Country. Sir
John Bowring expresses the opinion that
China is able to solve the great ootton problem
whioh now disturbs the manufacturers of Great
Britain. He looks with doubt upon the pro
bability of getting a large supply from Afrioa,
as he conoeives that the blacks are not suf
ficiently industrious to produce largely. The
fact that a very large proportion of the Chinese
are clad with garments made of ootton pro
duced in China, is one to which he attaches
much significance as bearing upon tbe matter.
A few years ago the silk harvest was in
peril, and one of the most important of British
manufactures was believed to be in a state of
danger, but in two years China was enabled
to send ten millions sterling of silk, fitted
nnd prepared for the English market. The
Chinese are very sagacious, and when taught
to sow a better seed, and the arts of cleaning
end preparing for market, China will be en
titled to be reckoned, more than she has been
reckoned hitherto, as an important source of
ootton supply.
' A Little Danbkusn Eleven Yea as Old
Elopes with an Adult Vagabond A pretty
little danseuse, Louisa Paullin, eleven years
old. who had been nerforminir t.hn nharaeta aF
"Little Eva," and other juvenile parts in San
rranouoo, wnere sne was very popular, eloped
thence on the 20th inst., with George Servey,
an ex-bar-keeper and oominon loafer, twenty
two years of age. She was the support of an
invalid father who was extremely fond of her,
and to whom she seemed deeply devoted. No
explanation oan be given to this extraordinary
movement. A love-match it oan scarcely be
called. The girl is rather inexplicably in
fatuated with a fellow who, entirely unworthy
of her, has indueed ber to forget her duty to
her parents, and take a step whioh she no
doubt deeply regrets before this.
The Housi in which Schiller was Born.
The house at Marbach, in which Schiller was
born, and which has been long occupied by a
baker, has been purchased, and is to be kept
as a publio memorial, a new shrine for the
poetic pilgrim. Such furniture ns can be
proved to have belonged to Schiller or his
family, is to be plaoed in the room on the
ground floor, in whioh the former first opened
his eyes to the light, and a library is to be
formed in the room above, to comprise all the
procurable manuscripts of tho poet, and all
his own works, as well as those written upon
him. 1
A French Mayor Opposed to Intoxication.
The Mayor of Brest has just issued a decree
containing these elauses : "Any man fonnd
