A word of explanation In roforenco to this
matter teems to be necessary. At Iho
commencement of tho session of tho Gen
eral As-embly hold hst winter, n
meeting of newspaper publishers con
vened at Springfield and transacted cer
tain buitnecB. Hsiides other action taken
tboso publishers retolvcd that a bill
should be prepared providing for tho pub
lication of lognl notices, etc. It was sug
gested in tho meeting that tho preparation
of such a bill would rtqutro much time
nnd labor, and that no member of tho
moetint; could, without recompense, gie
tho time, noceisary to the work. A com
mitto of tbroo was thyi rniiod, nnd in
structed to employ competent counsel in
the preparation of. tLo bill. A resolution
ti assess nowipnper publishes
to pay tho expenses was
adopted. Tho committee nmplojed
Mr. Orots. II o wont over nil Ihn ilatutcs
of tbo state, got Into soveral tactions of a
bill all the sections of all tbo laws in
which legal publications are ordorcd;
wrote out tho suggestions of the commit
too, and in this way proparod n bill which,
if enacted into a law, will give to IllinoU
a much bettor printing law than any
other state in the Union hns. Mr. Groia
charged SS0 foi bis labor, and it t to pay
that amount tho request referred to by
the two 'Uazettos' has boon made. If that
is jobbing or an attompt to bribo wo havo
dull eyes, and can't sao it. Of course
neither Ilampton, Thornton nor Oberly
bad the Impudence to prepare a bill when
a meeting of publishers bad ordered one
to bo proparod as above recited ; as wo
prosume neither ol those gentlemen, ail
being publishers, would llko to introduce
such a bill and urgo its pussago.
Vlcksburg Times.
About a year ago tho stato of Illinois
was thrown into a stato of intcnio oxcite
ment by an attempted murder of a lady
and gentloman at Hoblnion, Crawford
county, the circumstances of which appear
to nave I een as ioiiows :
A man named Thomas It. Klinn, a sort
of ne'er-do-well, bad beon paying his ad
dresses to a young lady connocted with
one el tbe boat famlltos in tna county, but
she finally bocamo disgustod with his way
ward disposition, and becamo engaged to
a lawyer named Parkor. This so inceused
Flinn, that, one day meeting tho couple
while out buggy riding, ho discharged his
shotgun fairly A them, wounding l'atker
so that he was in a precarious state for
some time, and tbe young lady in such a
mannor that sbo becamo hopelessly para
lyzod in tbo loer limbs.
The would-bo assassin, howover. escap
ed, and has since eludad the vigilance of
the police, though a reward of ono thou
sand dollars was offered for his arrest
by tho friends of tbe iojurod couple, and
soven hundred dollars by tho county. Ilia
photograph was sent to all tho large cities
In the country, and one of thorn has figur
ed in the roguos' gallery of Ltt Hall,
chief of police of this city.
A few months ago he was seen in Vlcks
burg, and it was ascertained that hu was
engaged in trapping and hunting on tho
various rivors of this statu, but no eiVort
was made to apprehend him until a fow
days ago, when Mr. Tom Arrlson re
ceived somo communications from a
friond in Illinois respecting tbo mattor,
and upon that information bo dotorminod
to mako an effort to capture the ruffian.
11 o accordingly wont to Justice Hunt, who
deputized him as a coustable for tho pur
pose, and with this authority he, on last
Monday, started up tho Yazzo river to
hunt for his prizo.
After a difficult and dangerous reconnoi
tcr of throe days bo succeeded in finding
the object of bis solicltudo near Ilnynea'
IilulT, in a thick canobracke,' almost im
penetrable to tho animals nf tbo wo.ids,
wbero ho bad established his camp. Arri
son and a man whom ho had taken with
him at onco saw that tboy had a dosperuto
charactor to deal with, armed with two re
volvers and bowlo knlvos and a shotgun,
which ho never for a tnomont left out of
his band. They introduced themselves as
huntors, and remained with him that
night, after which they loft to procure re
inforcements. Having dono tb'is, a negro,
who was one of the now aids uugagvd, wns
sent to the camp to get him to take him
across tho river in his dugout, the plan
being to catch him at the water unsuspi
cious and probably unarmed.
The plan succeeded so far as getting
him to tbe water was concerned, but he
had boen privately informed of tho orrnnd
of Arrlson, and when he presented himself
at tbe batik, warrant In band. Klinn imme
diately leveled bis gun at him and 11 red,
but Arrlson dropped and whs not' hit.
Flinn then turned round on the negro to
shoot, but tho darky wai too quick for
him, aud emptied tho contents of bis gun
at Flinn'a head, carrying away nearly tho
whole of the lower law, when Arrlson
Jumped on him and captured him,
Flinn, who It now in tho Jail In this
city, says Arriion tired at him Urat, but
tbis is denied He also says that hit reasons
for shooting tho couplu in Illinois was not
because ot his being jilted by the girl, but
because Parker had foully aspersed his
mothers name. Some letters were found
on him which somewhat tnodlfv th lia-.i
character glvan him, and it is possible
may not be at bad a man at is represented
though he was coniidcred on tbo river i!
mcst desperate character. When tbo ne
cessary papers arrivo from Illlnoli. and as
soon as bo is sufficiently recovered, be will
betaken to Illinois, and tho trial will
prove how far ho has beon guilty and how
much bo has boon sinned agalntt.
In Its organized form Swedenborglan
"m seems to havo gained no great success

the New Church Mngazlr.0. It nearly
ninety years sinco tbe doctrines of Swu

America, und now tbo a.owed believers in
them do not not number over 4900 or 6000
The first tociety was organized eighty
years ago, in Jieltirnore, and the regular
attendants are less than 160. Tho society
In Philadelphia Is fifty years old, and hat
200 altendantt-tO less than 46 years ago.
The New York society is 67 years old, and
all tbo attendance in Nw York and

From New York.
New York, December 20. London
papers of the 8ih inet., recoived to-day,
contains official reports of Captain Robert
son of tbe Loch Karri, which sunk tho
stvamcr Villo do Havre. It is ns follows, in
so far as it relates to the collision :
November 2'Jd, - a.m., latitude -10, 51
north, longitude 33, Cdeg. ; west winds
south ioutliwe.it; true abip braced upon
port tack, heading by standard compass
northwest by n, or west half h true. A
steamers rnnit head was seen from cno to
two points on port bow. Our side lights
were out and burning brightly. Shortly
after wo eaw that the steamer had three
lights ; sbo wns coining straight for us j al
most immediately ihosbowoJ only her port
and mast head light and was sti'uring ap
parently to pass under our t lorn. After u
short time we rung our lull and ported
our helm as wo thought she was coming
too closo. When cl se to the bow the
steamers helm was starboarded, she was
across our bew and a collision was Inevit
able. Tbo ordor was given to bs.ck our
nftor yards, but beforo the braces
could he lot go tlio two Tenuis cune in
collitiios with the Loch Karn, striking'
tho steamer amid ships. The ships im
mediately toporatod, and wo withdrew our
after yards aback, and tho crow then
shortened tall, and commenced to clear
uway tho port life-boat. The carpenter
being at tho pump?, replied that the ship
was making no water, and then went for
ward and found tho bowiprit guxo and
the bow mas had fcomplotoly in,., but
the collision bulk head was
appearantly uninjured. A boat from the
Mile du llavro, then came alorm the ildu
containing ofltccr and four men. I ask
od if tho steamer was much injurod, he
sani no wns rnjureu, out uiu not say slie
wanted assistance, as no tlgnuls ( dis
trois werorrmdoby tho steamer, I thought
at ono timo tho boat was aont to rendor us
assistance, but while, talking to an officer I
saw tbe steamer apparently scttlo down
and lowered tho port life-bout at once in
charge 6f tho second officor and four men
who made towards tho sinking ship. Our
cuttor and starboard life-boat wera then
cleared away nnd In a few mluutot de
parted to the scone of tho cUustrop.ie,
their only guide boing tho cries of the
drowning pooplo. Although the tteauier
had disappeared wo kept our boats out till
day lluht until everyone floating around
tho wreck was picked up. Wo succeeded in
saving eighty-four persons out of throe
hundrod and six, a large portion having
gono down with tho steamor. Tho Villo
do Havre only floated about flftcon min
utes after boing struck. Capt. Jtobertson
thm proceeds to give nn account of bis
falling in with tbo Tri-Mountain, and tho
transferring of his pastcngers and crew to
her with the exception of tho nurso?, tho
cook and tho wife of ono of tho ttoamor's
flromcn, who was injurod. Ho then gives
an account of li Is xtrugglo to save bis
The- following incidontof tho disaster is
told by tho captain of the Loch Karn :
A lady swum along side with a child in
her arms, a rope was thrown to her which
she seized, but in attempting to bo pulled
up, holding on with one arm and with the
othoritround her child, bor strength fullod
hor and the child was lost, but the poor
raotbor was hauled on board.
An Imposiug requiin mass was solomlzod
at llavro on the 8th lust.,
in honor tho vlctlnu. The
cathedral was draped in black from roof
to iloor, and wns thronged by n congrega
tion of llvo thousand persons. The cata
falque was surrounded by tho sailors of
tho republican navy, and all tho civic,
naval and military dignltarlcsof thoplaco
were present. The Cure's tertnon wai in
terrupted by bursts of grief from worship
pers. All the ships In the harbor dressed
their Hags half matt high, nnd
business was nt a stand still.
Tbo public subscriptions amount
to forty thouiMid francos excluding con
tribution of tho company, tbo singers of
tho l'orls opera are to glvo a performsncti
of Lafavorita nt llavro, for the benefit of
tbo families of tho victim.

number of gamblers who were forced to
discontinue faro in this city, t y police reg

months until within the pasiod few days,
havo been driven from the town by the
pressure brought to bear on tbum by Jef

that three large aud well patronized banks
