WS TBS NEW F1SII LA IF. The late fish law passed by the Legislature provides as follsws : The act, in precise and explicit lan guage, prohibits all kinds of fishioff, or killing of fish, whether in run ning streams, or lakes or ponds hav ing outlets into running streams, by any other means than by angling with hook and line. But it does not proQiuit using a nana or min now net to catch minnows lor bait. Private fish ponds may bo excepted. To put a trap in a stream which :ir . v. c - ,i - scent of fish is made . mnlawful. Damaging nan-eggs or young nan is made unlawful. Violations of the law are made indictable, and it is made tho duty of the circuit and criminal courts to give tha act in charge to the grand juries, who are given inquisitorial powers. All boats, canoes, nets, seines and other contrivances used in violating law are forfeited, and are to be sold, and the proceeds to go to the public schools. MACBETH" TAKEN FROM THE BIBLE. Bar . Richard Laa, D. D. You will find the principal char acters of "Macbeth" in the Book of Kinirs. Jezebel in the Bible is 'Lady Macbeth" in tho play. She it was that stirred up her husband to do all the deviltry he did. Then take Ilazael, a servant to the King. Under the influence of his wife, Jez ebel, he plots to kill his master, and become King of Syria in his stead. This plot is successful, and Ilazael is crowned King. This character exactly suits that of "Macbeth." The minor characters can also bo found in the Bible. Of course, Shakspeare has altered tho words, but the plot and characters art to ,IU"UU luf . v! in ton College, stated that Shakspeare s regular practice was to study tho Bible seven hours a day. There were not so many Bibles in his time as there are now, but although very costly, he had one, and made a daily practice ot studying it. Where Dr. know, but presume he is correct . 1 bough bbakspeare was undoubt edly a great man, I tbink-he is con siderably overrated, so far as his or- ginahty is . concerned. I think he was utt endowed with the genius of originality, but rather with tho gen ius ot arranging . tho writings of those gone-: before, and re-writing them in attractive style.

THE NOTED JOHN A. UCRHSLL. Knoxrilla duoniclo. I soo in your paper of yesterday you quote an article from the Nash ville American in which it is stated that Prof. Col ton has lately explor ed an interesting cave seven miles from Sparta, the county seat of White county, and in which he found the skulls of negroes. The article further states it is supposed this cave was occupied by tho no torious John A. Murrell and that the negroes Were killed by ' him. That he would Bteal negroes and sell them and then steal them back back again and kill them to keep from being informed on and to de stroy the evidence of: his crimes, Alurrell never figured in White county where this cave is' situated, aim a uoroc wneiner ne ever was in the county, except to pass through it on his way to Bledsoe countr. 1 he scene of his operations was in West Tennessee and Arkansas. He was convicted of sfealing 'a negro principally I think on the testimony of one Virtril A. Stewart. Stewart wound himself into ilurrell's confi denee arid pretended to ioin his gang, aud in this way obtained con iessions from him on which he was convicted. Stewart wrote and pub lished a pamphlet about Murrell's acts and crimes which created a thrilling sensation throughout Ten nessee and the surrounding States, juurreu was represented as a very blood-thirsty man, having killed n r ii . . several men, and that he was at tho head of a gang that roved from one end of the State to the other and had their headquarters in Arkansas lie represented that Murrell and his gang had a large house in a very unfrequented place in Arkan sas, where they concealed there ne groes ana other personal property iney naa stolen. murrell pro nounced btewart s pamphlet a tis sue of-lies, and Very logically pro posed that messengers should be sent to the place in Arkansas whero Stewart said this rendezvous and 1 1 r 1 ... jjtrire uouso 01 mm ana ms fransr was situated. And if it was found as Stewart represented he would then agree that all Stewart said about him was true. But if ic could not be found as Stewart represent ed, then he would be a convicted liar, and all he said and had written would have to be sot rside. I think no messengers were ever sent to Arkansas. But I believe nearly all the intelligent men of Tennessee came to the conclusion that much of Stewart's pamphlet was romance and had no foundation in fact. It was generally believed that Murrell had never murdered any one. and that he may have had the assistance of two or three men in stealing ne groes, but was not at the head of any. considerable gang. ' Stewart did not mention the names of any one that Murrell had murdered, and no person was missed from the neighborhoods where he freouented. Mcintosh, tho keeper of the peni- lentiary, who was a hne judge ot numan nature, said Alurrell bad never killed anybody that he was willing to eat all the men he ever killed that he was not a man of more than ordinary sense and cour age. I write from recollection about Stewart's pamphlet It was pub lished about 1833 or 34, and I have not seen it since. I saw Murrell while he was in the penitentiary several times. He was working at the blacksmith business. He was a trim made man. about five feet ten or eleven inches high, and did not have an unpleasant countenance. In 1844 I canvassed with Judge Ilowles. He and I were candidates for elector in the Presi dential election between Clay and Polk. This district then embraced all tho counties between here and the Georgia and Alabama lines, in cluding Sequatchie Valley. One dayj we were making speeches at Pikeville, the county seat of Bled soe county, in the valley. I had made the first speech. Soon after I concluded my speech I started to go down stairs., At the head of the stairway I met the notorious John A. Murrell.; As he made one step past me a gentleman asked me if that was John A. Murrell. I . said yes. Murrell heard tho question and answer, and very quickly turn ed round and walked down the steps. Before I could , start down the stairway, , the crowd in . the court-room began to pour dewn be fore me to soe Murrell. . Judge Pvowles was left with very few audi tors and soon concluded his speech. He and I spoke no more, publicly, that day. Murrell lived in Sequat chiesYaJIey, five or 6ix miles "above 1'ikeville. 1 think ho came there immediately after his release from the penitentiary. He died soon af ter 1844, when , he broke up the speaking betweed Howies and my self. I think he died next year. I was through Bledsoe county a good deal in 1845-47, canvassing, for Congress, and r understood some persons, ,who were strangers, came to Bledsoe, county and exhumed the body of Murrell and carried it away. i .v.r '!-.

WORLD OWES INO." MB A LIT- A MISTAKEN IDEA WHICH FREQUENT LY LEADS THE YOUTH TO FAILURE. Charles Barnard, in "A Fable for Boys," which appears in St, Nicho las for May, says : As soon as a boy leaves school and looks around to see what he shall do next, he is very likely to be told by some un wise person: "The world owes you a living." This probably strikes him as being a very wise remark, and the boy says to himself: "If it is true that the world owes me a living, then I m all right." He finds a place, and goes to work manfully ; but after a time ne con- - 1 eludes that there is no fun in it. and he stops to consider: "If the world owes me a livine. 'whv should J trouble myself? Let the world rav lis aeot to me. Suddenlv he loses I his place and has nothiner to do. He I is surDrised. and wnnder whir fhn world does not give him his due. "A nice bed, warm clothes, and rec- j ular dinners, are good things and I I ought to have them. The world owes them to me. and if T tin nnt get them I'vo been cheated out of my rights. , At one time this country was a wilderness, where no man could live, save by fighting the wild beasts. Some one chased away the bears and wolvos, and cut down the forests, laid out roads, built towns. and dug canals. Somebody spent vast sums of money in constructing railroads, steamboats, docks, light houses, schools, libraries, and all the fine things vou eniov so freelv. More than this, somebody pays the policeman, the fireman, the soldier, the sailor, the light-houeo-keeper. schoolmaster. From the day you were born your father and mother have fed, clothed, and sheltered you. It has cost you nothing. None of these great public works, roads, canals, towns, navies,- and armies Cost you anything. How can you say tho world owes you a living? Is it not you who are in debt? What has a boy done to deserve all this ? Not thing. Iti3you who must pay not the world. Ah ! boys, he was a foolish crea ture who first said: "The world owes me a living. lie told a very silly fable. The world owes no man a living till he has done some wor thy deed, some good work to make the world better and a fairer place to live in. Those old fellows who dug canals and laid out towns, who built cities and invented all these splendid things these telegraphs, these ships, these magnificent en gines had the right idea. They worked manfully, and the world at last did owe them a living, and paid it many times over, n you mean to get out of the great debt you owe the . world, do something go to work and show you are a man. Then, when you have shown the world you can work, it will gladly pay you a living, and the finer and more noble your work the greater will be your reward. DEVINE JUDGEMENT FOR 8AB- BATH BREAKING. To the end of the sixteen century, in Hingiand, "bods judgements were much in vogue. A Suffolk clergyman, named Bownd, adduces many such judgements. One was the case of a nobleman "who. for hunting on the holy day,' was pun ished by having a child with a head like a dog's." , Though he cites this instance, Bownd, in the matter of Sabbath observance, was very lenient toward : nobleman. With courtier-like plancy, which is.'not without its counterpart at the pres ent time he makes an exception in their favor : "Concerning the feasts of noblemen and great personages or their diet upon this day, because they represent in some measure the majesty of God on earth, in carry- ing me image, as it were, or the il a, . T magnificence and puiscince of the Lord, much is to be granted them." Ji he civil war was regarded as a punishment for Sundny desecration. lhe fire ot JLondon and a subse quent great fire in Edinburg were ascribed to ' this cause, -while the fishermen of Berwick lost their trrde through catching ' salmon on Sunday. A daunken peddler "fraught with commodities" on Sunday, drops into a river. One TJtrich Schrcetorus, a Swiss, while playing at dice on the Lord's day, lost heavily, and appar ently to gain the devil to his side broko out into this horrid blas phemy: "If fortune deceives me now I will .thrust my dagger into the bod v'of God." : Whereupon he threw the dagger upward. It dis appeared, and five drops of blood, which afterward proved indepble, fell upon the gaming-table. The devil then appeard, and, with a hideour noise, carried off the vile blasphemer.' His two companions fared no better. : One was struck dead and turned into worms, the other was executed. -Popular Sci ence: Monthly. . f . . . One of the most extensive bands of horse- thieves in the West has just been broken up by the convic tion of several of its" leaders at La fayette, Ind. Tt is ' estimated that during the past six years the thieves stole horses valued in the aggregate at $500,000.-, Ex-Congressman Ste phen O. Taylor, no sheriff, is cred ited with breaking up thd band. A number of so-called respectable citi zens are said to have been in collu sion with the thieves. - ' ' Steps are' being taken in New York for the relief of, Mrs ; Meikle ham,tbe last surviving granddaugh ter of Thomas Jefferson, who is said to be livin g at present in absolute need in - Georgetown,, D.

GEORGE WASHINGTON ALLIGED TO HAVE BEEN 3161,000 SHORT IN HIS ACCOUNTS. ' Washington Dispatch to the Boaton Globe. According to the boeks of the Treasury Department, Gen. Georgo Washington, the lather of his coun J . .a . a try, is inaeDted to the country in the sum of $161,000. Mr. Vale -L.i .! il . 1 . a 1 a a cniei oi me collections division in the office of Third Auditor Keig iv, recently nad occasion to rum mage among some old books in the top story of the Treasury Depart ment. While doing so the records of the pay office of the Continental establishment from 1774 to 1792 were unearthed and in them the in debtedness of Washington to the government was found. These old books are m a wonderful state of preservation and they are properly regaraed as one ot the greatest curi osities in the Treasury Department iienerai N ashington s accounts with the pay department are found in four separate entries, in two vol umes of the journals. The money charged to him, and for which cred its are given, was on account of his disbursements in the Mrar for inde pendence. As before stated, the books show that he received $161, 339 more than is accounted for, ex clusive of a largo balance due the government on General Washing ton's specie account It is impossi ble now to tell what was the cause of the apparent deficit in the regu lar pay account, but the deficit in the specie account is believed to have been due to the depreciation in the value of the colonial com. The name of Colonel Benedict Arnold appears on the record near that of Washington. A balance of 51,8.31.67 appears by the books to be due the government from Ar nold. An index accompanies the journals, and on this index, opposite noids name, is written, in a steady hand, the word "traitor." Aaron Burr also had an account with the pay department, and his receipts and expenditures balance to a penny. Colonel Ethan Allen's accounts, upon examination, are found to be correct, but the Mar quis de Lafayette was not so fortu nate. There appears to be a bal ance due from him of $2,020. HOW THUNDER SHOWERS COME UP. In order toconveva more definite idea of our theory we will choose a certain locality which may serve the purpose of a diagram to our demonstration, and this locality shall be the region of West river. This river takes its rise among the forests near the summit of the Green mountains, at a height of some 2,- UUU leet above the leyel of the sea, and, flowing southerly forty or fitly miles, empties into the Connecticut river about two miles north from the southern boundary of the State. During a hot summer day the r sides of the deep valley of this river reek with intense heat, and cause a flew of moist air upward toward the summit of the mountain region, from the valley of the ' Connecticut, and also from the sea. This moist air, meeting with the general cur A. I" .1 ie . e a ' ' , 1 reni; rrom tne southwest, piles up an immense mass of cumulouc cloud of many square miles in extent So long as the - intense heat prevails this cloud increases in size, grows blacker with its dense vapor, and casts a gloomy, lurid glare over the face of nature, darker than that of any eclipse. The vapor, pushed by the ascending currents of heated air, attains a great height above tho sea, where the temperature is very low. But finally, at that hour of the after noon when the. heat begins to de cline, tho accumulated , vapors, no longer augmented or sustained by heated air from the valleys below, fall in rain. Popular Science Month ly. WATERING HORSES. There is a great diversity of opinion as to how often horses should be watejed during a day, whether in summer or in winter. ; We have an article jiow before us of a writer of some distinction as an agricultur ist, who advocates frequent water ing of work horses, as a renewer of the vigor, of the animals. We can-; not agree , with him. We think both man' and beast are watered too much. Men and horses at hard work in warm weather prespire just in proportion to the quanity of fluids taken into the stomach. . .Fre quent drinking in hot weather, ac cording to our experience, emascu-i lates instead of refreshes. Some years ago, being at Capo may, in in driving out in one of the stand coaches of tho place on a very . hot day, we asked the driver how it was that his horse perspired so lit tle, while the horses of private car riages, going at a slower speed, were covered with foam. He replied that he watered his horses three times a day only, though he sponged their mouths . frequently, while tho pri vate drivers watered their horsos whenever they - stepped. He said,' and it seemed to us .very, sensible, that the frequent watering of horses effected no good purpose, while it made them very uncomfortable and lethargic. Horses, no matter what their work was, did not need water ing oftener than three times a day. Our own experience with horses all our life is to the same effect---Exchange. , ? .

Berlin philosopher announces that he has discovered a way to make " a trip around : the world in twenty four hours, ne says that he is informed by the Cap tain of ships that birds are seen at sea a thousand miles or more , from land, and pronounces it self-evident that they ; must reach shore in a very short time, since they cannot find a resting-place in mid wcean. From this he conceived the idea that, they, merely raised themselves aloft, and, with only enough motion to keep anoat remain as nearly stationary as possible, while the earth revolves around under them. All they then have to do is to wait until the desired spot on the earth s surface comes along, and thereup on comfortably to lower themselves to solid ground. This ingenious practice on the part . of birds the Berlin man proposes to imitate for mankind with the assistance of a balloon and passenger-car of pecu liar construction that he has invent ed, and which will soar aloft and re main stationary, while the restless earth rolls on below. It dees not appear, that he has successfully tried a trip with his balloon himself, but he has laid his theory before the Polytechnic Society of Berlin, and given an elaborate exposition of it The society received it apparently with levity, but the inventor is in dead earnest ' WomanV writes Her perennial N.
