' Marian Douglass contribute, to the Atlantio Monthly a iiuaiut poem, Beiore too "eu rlitiv whleh mlfttiis the exitarience of I maiden and a Methodist revival preacher. Wo quote a portion of it : But when I came to hear him preach, He told the Gospel story So thrillingly. through all the grove Went uo one shout of " Ulorr I" Rough men were bowed, hard , inner, wept, 1 owned his power to nolu me; His glowing fervor, like a spoil. Against my will controlled me. " For who ia he? " I said, ray own Admiring thought reproving. "A Methodist itinerant, ' Who keep, forever moving Just two years in a place. "That's too hard a way," thought I, " To run the Christian raoe I " 1 said the preacher pleased me not 1 cm not wisn to meet mm t , And when we met, I tried to see. i . j How coldly formal I could b, I 5 J ? , j And courteously treat him. 1 . J S But when a woman tries to bate. Be sure it', love beginning; t 'lhe more I frowned, the more I felt That he my heart was winninr. Dull (may the Lord forgive 1 I found The class, unless he led it. And sweeter seemed the bleased word j Of Scripture, if he read it. And from the closing love-foaat, when, A, we walked home together, 1 He led sue down a quiet path And calmly asked me whether " My future ahould bo one with hi,," Aud I must take or lose him, I felt my hold on earthly joy . ) , , ' Waa lost ahonldl relume him." 1 1 " But, if I love, there', but on way," I said, " my love of proving; ' And I am willing, for your auke, i To keep forever moving, ' Moving, moving, moving Just two years in a place I , J f Happy, wheroso'er I go, ( J 1 1 I If 1 but see your face!" Woodliall Matter. New York Correspondence of the Boston journal. j Strenuous efforts have been made to eet Victoria Woodhull and Teuuie C, Claflin Out of Ludlow street jail, Out so far without success. It will take from f 25,000 to $30,000 to bail tbe women. lieaidea the suit on which they are ar rested, there are aeven or eiht other suits already to be served it these parties eet bail in the present case. There are libel suits; soits for blackmail; suite in State courts, as well as in the United States Court, and the result of bail, if it could be obtained, would not free the women from durance vile. While Mr. Beecher's friends bavo nothing to do with the arrest of Mrs. Woodhull, and ber sister, there are outside parties who fare determined to have this matter probed to the bottom. Over thirty een tlenien have received letters demanding money on the threat of attack In the public prints, some have paid money to avoid an unwelcome publicity. Others have laid, "Oo ahead," while one gentleman who was visited in his olliee by a woman, arose Irom bis seat, took ber by the collar, led her to the head of the stairs and told ber if she ever darkened his doors again he would ding her down the stairs if he broke every bone in ber body. Chains is de termined to carry this matter through th courts, both on the civil and crimi nal side ol the bench. , , . The extent of this business in New York is perfectly marvellous. It is car ried on mainly by women with a man in the back ground. A shrewd lawyer g retained, and ; the . business ; is often parried on under, legal advise. The most a4rpit arts are resorted to, and reputable msu (re often taken in, and, finding themselves.to . a iad muss, pay money to' escape. A gentleman was starting from the street, not long since, for his home in upper New York. As he ga; entering bis carriage a woman approached iii., yell dressed, modest in appearance, and appac;)tlT in distress. She was a stranger had cou doyn to meet a friend he had not come woujd tLfl gentleman be kind enough to tell her tka aar to tbe street named nam ing the on in bjrh the banker lived was never m ew fori; figpre aia uo know what she should do wringing Ijer hands ia agony.' The gentleman offered her a seat in his c&rrinee. and left her at the desired point. The next day, in the rush of buaineis, a lad came in and said a lady wished ta speak to the gen tleman in her carriage. On going out he discovered tbe identical woman whom he bad aided the day before, hbe wanted 1000. and if she did not receive it down town she would call for it at his house some evening.' The report is (hat the merchant was bled to the tune ot'ftWf). when he thought it was time to hand tius flap pypr to th authorities, and the whole ajajr frl fcff? n airing in due time. - , Mr. Comstock is a young New York merchant who is destined to have his naaue somewhat widely known. He has been ?ogaj;J for over a year in seizing vile literature o4bioring men engaged jo th trade to trial, aod' often to the peni tentiary, lie has been doing ibis Wofk at bituwo cost, and for a time without much sympathy. He was the complain ant ou whose aflQijarU (be V'oojhull party were afreeted and are suU b14 ia jail. II propose! to nave this -whole matter thoroughly sifted. He has let ters and proofs of a system of black mailing that are perfectly astounding, which shows to what an alarming extent this work is carried. It is known that for over a year Mr. Beecher has been in receipt of blackmailing letters, to which, of course, he paid no attention. I am told by a gentleman who has means of knowing, that. the vile article in the Woodhull paper was sent to Mr. Deecher before it was published. Mrs. Woodhull, her sister Claflin and Blond, each swore before tbe court that neither of them wrote tbe article. It was attributed to a distinguished Free Love Philosopher. But be denies all know ledge of the affair, and he would be be-, lieved anywhere. The authorship has been traced to a source that would hardly be expected. A gentleman told me to day that he had positive proof in his possession as to the writer of tbe libel, and that it will bo brought out in due time, fie had something to do with the arrest of the parties, and while watching Mrs. Woodbull's office, waiting for the Sheriff, be saw the person to whom the article is attributed sitting on the sofa with the two women, and he left the room only a few moments before the arrest took place. Of course neither of the parties supposed that any legal pro ceedings were to take place. . Tbe Paradise of Forgers. From the London Daily Telegraph. The fancied paradise of a bank note forger if such felons can imagine an elysium at all must be a country where a majority of the population are unable to read, but where there is to be found in every populous center an adequate supply of skillful engravers. Cruel fate, however, while frequently granting one of these conditions, can, with extreme rarity, be induced to vouchsafe both. In the United States, for example, bank note engraving has been brought to the highest pitch of perfection; and, unhap pily, among a number of skilled artisans, there has generally been found an ave rage proportion of chalcographers un scrupulous - enough to assist in the fabrication of " bogus " dollar bills; but, on the other hand, illiterate Americans are rare, and tho people are, in most cases, shrewd enough to detect forgery. Turning to Russia we find, per contra, that tbe great mass of tbe peasantry can not read, and that they will accept, with bliud confidence, the most clumsily forged note, so long as its numerical value in roubles is expressed by a given hue in the paper. Muscovy would be the forger's paradise were it not for the fact that good engravers are with difficulty to be found. The fraudulent negotiator of notes is fain to make a journey to Eng land, aid his transactions there usually lead to an interview with tbe sitting magistrate at Bow street, and a conver sation, in which Inspector Druscovitch and M. Albert, the interpreter, take Bart 13y all accounts, however, the adras Presidency must have been as a land . flowing with milk and honey for forgers. Captain Weldon bad been de pnted to hunt down a gang which, for length of time, had carried on operations to a singularly successful extent, and we now learn that he has captured the last two members of the "school" Telung Brahmins, it is said, lhe leader jumped into a tank some time since and was drowned; but the surviving and accotn plished gentlemen now in custody were the actual manufacturers of the notes They disdained the elaborate and costly processes of - copper or steel-plate engraving, and, aware that they were among people who knew little about the difference between incised and surface printing, were content to adopt the rougher and readier means of lithography, ooft litbographio stones abound in many parts of the Presidency, while, as for the tools required, any one with a little soap. aud lampblack, some eum and a reed pen or a camel's hair brush, oan set up as a lithographer, What is wanted in addition, are unflag ging patience and amazing imitative adroitness. These qualities the manu facturers found among the humblest na tive handi-craftsmen in a hundred little towns and villages. Tbey carried the stones about with them, and got th forgeries executed bit by bit, yet with well nigh unerring skillfulness. The notes mav be laid almost to have been woven. The artisans, indeed, may have been first cousins to those wonderful Orientals who weave rainbow-tinted shawls in the corner of a durksome hovel, and make iridescent carpets on looms resembling nothing half so much as dilapidated clothes-horses, with hoop, sticks for shuttles. The Old Chler Jnatlce. When Judge Marshall lived in Rich mond, his opposite neighbor was Colonel Pickett, father of tbe Confederate Gen eral George B. Pickett, of Gettysburg fame. Colonel Pickett was a man of wealth, lived well, and was not content unless everything about his household bore the marks of good living. His horses were his pride, and were conspic uous everywhere for their splendid ap pearance, being as sleek, fat and high- spirited as abundant food and excellent groominjr peuld make them. Judge Marshal' horses, qn the other hand, were notoriously lean and unwept. Everybody but the Judge had long re marked this. At last it was brought to his notice, with the suggestion that his maze driver neglected tbe horses, sold much of thoir food and appropri ated the money to hig own use, a good deal of it sroine. no doubt, for liquor. Tbe Judge called him up without delay. Dick, what is the reason Uolonel Pickett's horses are in such a sDlendid condition, vyhlo mine are almost skele tons? I am afraid you neglect them, don't half curry them and don't half feed them." Pick, not expecting the attack, was fairly posed, lie hemmed and hawed awhile, till he uould gather his negro wits about him, and theu said: Mars John, look at you; is yeu fat? "No," said the Judge; "decidedly not." "Well, look atole Misst Mrs. Marshall ) : i she fat?" "Mo." Deo jook at me; is I fat?" I'.'rUWrr l 7' borses is dey fat?" u Now. den, you iea' look at Kunnel Pickett he fat, his car'ige driver fat, his horses fat, his dogs fat ail fat. De troof is, Mars John, fat run in de Pickett fam ily, and it don t run in our'n. pat's alL" Well," si; lcf Judge, after a little reflection, "There I a good deal in that. Ji never occurred to me before.'1 fie turned back into his study, and Pick v pever troubled any more. Memphis Architectural Iron Works. JOHNSON. RISK & CO,, ; !
