Fro m an Austrian Merchant's Narrative in the London Pally News. The Cadi of Souakim, 'who had been a friend of mine, told me that if I would not becom a Mussulman I should without doubt be killed. I agreed to bcome one, and was ob liged to wear the native dress, con sistinre of drawers, vest, and Arab "gallabieh" er smoke-frock, and Blipperu. I then was deprived of my fire-arms and brought to Osman Digmx. 1 found him amongst a cir cle of Arabs sitting on the ground; he wore only a very dirty sheet and a straw cap ; he appeared to me to be a very common sort of a man in fact, the least distinguished-look ing of the group. I gave him the usual salaams, and then told him I wanted permission to. remain in camp and live with his men, as I had my friend there. Ho told me he would be very glad to have me with him, and that as I had become a Mussulman I need entertain no fears for my life. . Alter tnis short interview l was spoken to by a couple of Souakim people, acquaintanees of mino who happened to be there, as to the meaning of my visit. I was assured by my friends that they were not at present thinking of the wrongs they had undergone, but that they were certain that the real Jlahdi had come, who would overthrow all nations, destroy all his enemies, and then rule the world according to his own ideas ; that ho was a man un known before, suddenly become so powerful that he was able to crush every expedition sent against lnm by tho Government; that really there was no power on earth to re strain him in the accomplishment of tho task he had undertaken ; that they had received letters from him ordering them to arise and fight in his cause, thereby gaining a place n Paradise; and that if they dis obeyed his commands, he himself in short time would come and pun h them by destroying them and snding them to hell. They said, moreover, mat tue men wno are firrbtins: under Osman Digma are not afraid of rifles, cannons, or ar.y- that eould be used against them ; that they have power to cap- ure all guns in perfect certainty, and that if they die in such a holy cause, they will enjoy themselves orever in l'aradise: that their swords and spears would destroy Sinkat and Tokar, and after tho fall of these two forts tho people who now besiege them would together all on Souakim, encamping by its wells, and taking the town they would not leave stono upon stone in it; that they intended to go to Jed dah and Mecca, take possession of .Egypt, kill the Sultan of Stamboul and all the Englishmen and Chris tians, and then find themselves free to cope with the Abyssinians. They 6aid also that they had found out in their books that this ene is the real Mahui prophesied by Mahomet as his career is tho same exactly as foretold by that prophet; if he bo not the real "Mahdi" how could he have beaten the Government as he has done? They cared neither for riches, position, nor anything on earth, for they know if they fought for him they would gain Heaven ; if not, they would go to hell. Nono shall be allowed to own property ; they shall bo all poor, eat simple grain, as their General Osman is do ing. "When their cloth was finished they did not want any more than was coming from the Christians; they would make their cloth yut of mats. They told me that at pres ent people who own cattle, grain and money gave up part voluntarily to Osman Digma, in order to supply the poor who wanted food ; that Os man might have any amount of property, but did not want any; they had treasure places where they put all sorts of valuable things. People who wanted to join them would be all well received, and plenty of food found for them. 1 was at Usinan uigm s camp sixteen days, and during this timo I was not allowed to see the chief any more. I made the ""following re marks, viz. ; ; That the Arabs at tho camp, were animated by a very strong religious excitement; were most ef thorn . Hadendowas, except some few. Many of them used to stitch to their clothes, in fancy de signs, any tort of colors they could get; others only a . small pieco ot red cloth. They are led mostly by Souakim people. Besides reading in the morning, Osman Digma reads to them during other parts of the day books about the Mahdi, with comments, to excite their minds.. . I found tho camp of Digma mod erately provided with grain, and now and then I could seo camels loaded with grain arriving from To kar. The principal food this, peo ple rely on is grain and milk. , Milk used to be seat m skins to our liuta every second or third day by the families of our men, and we almost always used to tako it sour, because tho Arabs prefer it so. , I remarked that sometimes they poured some fresh milk on a skin containing some milk three days old. Of course they Bever think, about washing. up the skius. We bad generally twice a day hominy with milk on it, but sometimes when wo could not get the flour they merely boiled the grain in water and ato it so. Dur ing my.stay of sixteen, days I twice had good mutton to eat ; twice I rej ceived a few pieces ol skin not worth eating, This scarcity of meat was not ajrreeinfr well with, them.. The Souakim peoplo of tho camp assured me that every day twenty cows and twenty camels aro slaughtered to furnish the poor peoplo of the camp with meat. true, a sht.cn at 2a lb. clean meat, worth in Souakim two-and-a-half dollars, could be bought there for half a dollar. I could see the rebels were not short of spears. They had also some swords of their own, and per haps less than 10 per cent, of them bad Ilemington rifles, which in my opinion they could not properly use I asked them why they were not practising. They told me they were short of ammunition. 1 asked them what was the good of going to Sou akim at night, firing shots in the air, and then running awaj. They told me it was to disturb the sleep of the soldiers. They assured me that they had found it a good pro caution ajrainst beinjr hurt by the rifle-bullets to lie down flat on the the thirteenth day of my imprison ment that the Arabs had done some scouting on theplain of Etbai, in habited by the Arabs of Mahmoud Ah, who was friendly with the Gov ernment, and had brought with them twenty-one men as prisoners, of whom ono escaped the first night. I at once conceived the idea of es caping myself. My last night there, at midnight, when all was quiet, I crept from the hut in front of which the men were asleep, and I took care not to awaken them. By crawling I got clear of them, and in half an hour was free of the camp. WOMAX SUFFRAGISTS. THE PLAN FOR FUTURE ACTION MAP PED OUT AND ADOPTED. Washington, March 8. At the session of the woman's suffrage As sociation yesterday apian for future action was mapped out and agreed upon. It was decided to hold con ventions the coming year under the auspices of the association in every State and Territory not now organ ized for woman's suffrage, and that upon the vice-president of the asso ciation should devolve the super- intendency of what is known as legislative work in their respective State and Territories. This legisla tive work consists in the endeavor to secure the adoption by State and Territorial legislatures of recom mendations to their representatives in Congressofthe proposed sixteenth amendment to give the freedom of the ballot to woman. It was also decided to use all the resources at the command of tho association to defeat any Presidential candidate by whatever party nominated who opposed to woman's suffrage. Tho views of the several candidates on this question are to be obtained by tho officers of the association, Mrs. Stanton, Miss Anthony and Mrs. Sewall, and when obtained theso officers will issue an address to the country directing the course to be followed by them, with respect to the candidate. It is not proposed to aid any candidate to secure election, but to defeat every candidate not in sympathy with tho objects of the association. Mrs. Sewall, chairman of the Executive committee, made a report upon the work during the year, and upon what it proposed doing the coming year, lhis re port was discussed and adopted by the association. Miss Tyler, of Arkansas, made a telling report of the' work in that State. Addresses were also made by Florence Kal lock, of Illinois; Mrs. Sbattuck, of Massachusetts and Mrs. Dunaway. of Oregon. Resolutions were adopt ed expressing satisfaction at tho encouraging condition of the move ment, and the convention adjourned sine die. Twenty six States and Terri tories have been represented in the convention. .The Senate Commit tee on Woman Suffrage gave a hear ing to the members of the associa 3. Mrs. Sbattuck, of Massachu setts; Mrs. Sewall, and Mrs. Goucrar, of Indiana; Mrs. Rogers, of Kew lork; Mrs. Dunaway, of Oregon; Mrs. Harbart, of Illinois, and Miss Anthony addressed the Commit tee.

Given Away by a Nashville Friend The Sucide of "Warren Davis. iv -uenaersonviue, j. u., specia a TT 1 Ml -m.-- to yesterday's Cincinnati Enquirer, says : A lew days since a brief tele gram appeared from San Antonio iexas, announcing the sucide of Warren Dawkins, alias J. W. Wal ker, in a Vaudeville Theater of that city. It transpires that the sucide was Warren Davis, recently posta clerk in the office of this town and son ot one or the most prominent citizens of this section. In Decern ber last a locomotive was stolen from the depot of the A. and S. railroad at this place. The event, when discovered, caused great ex citement and a posse of citizens, with a detective, commenced pur suit. At Saluda, ten miles form Hendersonville, it was ascertained that the thief had stopped at a tank to fill the boiler, but on the approach of an employe f the road had sud denly turned on steam and plunged down a steep grade, perhaps the steepest in the United States, being 3b i feet in three miles. The veloci ty at which the engine rushed down the grade was appalling, residents along the line being aroused from sleep by the noise of the locomotive as is passed over the dangerous tres tle, sounding like detonations of heavy artillery. By a miracle he reached the bot tom of the grade in safety, and at once abandon the engine and coolly proceeded to return to Henderson ville, stopped for breakfast en route, and washed the dirt from his hands and face. Here he remained until reward of 500 was offered by the railroad for the apprehension of the party who took the engine. earing arrest and having cause to believe he was suspected by detect ives here, he left town and passed through Atlanta, went to Nashville, Tenn. Here he met a young man by the namo of Reynolds, of whom ie foolishly made a confident, giv- n r r flnfnila rf tliofV nf tliA .n.iinn the reward offered and the detective who he feared had spotted him. Reynolds and Davis afterward went to San Antonio, Texas, and from here treacherous Reynolds wrote to Detective Bryson in Hendersonville, offering to surrender Davis if he would insure him the reward there for. Bryson at once telegraphed the San Antonio Chief of Police to see Reynolds and secure Davis. During an entertainment at the Vaudeville Theater young Davis saw the Chief of Police enter the building with Reynolds. Satisfied that ho was betrayed, and deter mined to die before being carried back to North Carolina, he coolly drew his pistol and blew his brains out. His act caused great excite ment in the theater. . Young Davis was a bright, handsome lad, eigh teen yoars of age, and much liked here. His mother, who idolized him for he was an only son was terribly shocked, and is in a critical condition. It is impossible to as sign a causo for the freak, but it is suspected that whisky is at the hot torn of it. TRUTI1S FOR WIVES. In domestic happiness the wife influence is much greater than her husband's: for the one, the first cause mutual love and confidence being granted, the whole comfort of the household depends upon tri fles more immediately under her lunsdiction.. By her management of small sums her husband's res pectabilily and credit are erected or destroyed. .No fortune can stand the constant leakago of extravagance and mismanagement ; and more is spent, in triflles than women would easily believe. The one great expense, whatever it may be, is turned ovor and carefully reflected on before incurred; the income is prepared to meet . it; it is pennies imperceptible sliding away which do mischief, and this the wife alone ?an stop, for it doe3 not come Avith- in a man s province, mere is oiten an unexpected trifle to be saved in eyery household. It is not in econ omy alone that a wife's attention is so necessary, but in those Blatters which make a well regulated house. An unfinished cruet-stand, a miss ing key, a buttonless shirt, a soiled table-cloth, a mustard-pot with its old contents sticking about it, are really nothing; but each can raise an angry word or causo discomfort. Depend upon it, there is a great deal of domestic happiness in a well dressed mutton-chop; or a tidy breakfast-table. Men rrrow lull of beauty, tired of music, are often too wearied for conversation,1 ; however intellectual, but they can always appreciate a well-swept hearth and smiling comfort. A woman may love her husband devotedly may sacrifice fortune, friends, family, and country for him she may havo the genius of a Sappho, the enchanted beauties of an Armida; but melan choly fact- if with these she fails to make her homo comfortable, his heart ' will . : inevitably escape her. And women live so entirely in the affeetions that without love their existence is a void. Better submit, then, to household tasks; however repugnant they may be to , your tastes, than doom yourself to a love less home. " Women' of a higher order of mind will not run this risk; they knew that their feminine, their domestic, are t their first duties. Domestic Monthly. - ' ' , ; 'Tis glorious to stand at the back window and view the resplendent sunrise 'vaulting o'er the eastern leafless forest, to make tho deep ening glow of the god of day as ho toils away with his little kerosene can 'and fools around with the ash sifter, and the beauty of it all is that you aro too far away to hear his wife shout from under the bed-clothes, "Aint you got that fire lighted yet, Sol?" AN UNNATURAL SON. He Beats His Aged Mother iu a Frightful Manner. Gath ers His Effects Together and Skips Out. Meraphia Public LaJger. Malinda Richardson, a colored woman, employed as a domestic at the boardinghouse of Mrs. Schafer, No. 137 Dadison street, called at police headquarters yesterday after noon and swore out a warrant against John Ennis, son of Mrs. Schafer, for assault and battery. The woman said Ennis had iust struck her several blows, and was Deating his mother in a frightful manner. Othcer llednck at once proceeded to serve the warrant and reaching the house, found a youns man who, in response it inquires, said that Ennis had gathered some clothes together and skipped out after assailing his mother in a vio lent and brutal manner. Mrs. Schafer was found in the kitchen i with her head bandaged up, and bearing evidence of having received severe treatment. She said her son had been drunk, and corroborated the statement of the" colored .domes tic about the assault. She further said that John (her .on had left the house by the back way, and she hoped and prayed he would stay away and never molest her again. Mrs. Shafer s manner was earnest, and her statement bore the appear ance of truth. Officer Hedrick made several inquiries as to the man's probable whereabouts and his haunts but no information could be given him. in the meantime the colored girl who swore out the warrant en tered the house, when she learned that her assailant had fled. Noth. ng further was left Mr. Hedrick to do but return, and he had not gone more than a hundred yards from the house before he was called by the Richardson girl, who said Ennis was in his room. The officer made all haste back, only to find the bird, which had been in the house all the time and had not skipped, had this time in reality taken wings unto imself and flown. Active pursuit was made, and the trail struck, but ost on ono of the streets south of Madison where it crossed the bayou. Tho statement of Mrs. Schafer and the young man alluded to rslativo to the imaginary flignt of tho man before the officer first reached the house may bo aptly classed with the peculiar veracity of a couple of well-known Biblical characters. GOOD ADVICE. TO YOUNG MEN WnO ARE AFRAID OF WORKING THEMSELVES TO DEATH. Burlington Hawkeye.fJ And then, remember, my sou, you havo to work. Whether you handle a pick or pen, a wheelbarrow or a set of books, digging ditches or edit ing paper, ringing an auction bell or writing funny things, you must work. If you will look around you, son, you will seo that tho men who are most able to live the restof their days without work aro tho men who work the hardest. Don't bo afraid of killing yourself with over work, son. It is beyond your pow er to do that. Men cannot work so hard as that on the sunny side of thirty. They die sometimes, but its be cause they quit work at 6 p. m., and don't get homo until 2 a. m. It's the interval that kills, my son. The work gives )ou an appetito for meals, it lends solidity to our slum ber, it gives a perfect and grateful appreciation of a holiday. There are young men who do not .work, my son, young men who make a living by sucking tho end of a cane, whose entire mental development is just sufficient to tell them which side of a stamp to lick, young men who can tie a neck tie in eleven dif ferent knots and never lay a wrinkle in it, and then would get into a West Hill street car to go to Chicago; can spend more money in a day than you can earn in a month, son, and who will fro to the Sheriffs to buy a postal card, and apply at the office of tho street commissioner for a marriage license. But the world is not proud of them, my son. It docs not know their names eyen ; it simply speaks of them as Seanso's boj'S. Nobody likes them, nobody hates them; the great busy world doesn't even know that -they are here, and at the great day of the resurrection if they do not appear at the sound of the trumpet,, and they certainly will not unless some body tells them what it is for aud what to do, I don't think Gabriel will miss them or notice their ab sence, and they will not bo sent for e , t , . rn i ' ? if c or aisturDcu. xninirs win go on just as well without them.' So find out whatou want to do ana to ao, son, and take off, your coat' and make a dust .in the world.

THE COLONEL SURPRISED AND DISARM ED, BUT NO TRACE OF THE FUGITIVE FOUND HORSEMEN TO CONTINUE. TnE SEARCH IN PEEDEE SWAMP. Columbia, S. C, March 9. Chief State ' Constable Richbourg, with twelve picked men armed" with im proved Sharps rifles, left Columbia at midnight last night, and arrivod at Florence at 3:50 this morning, whero they were met by Sheriff Cole of Darlington county, Sheriff Spofford of Chesterfield county still being "sick." Tho party took an other special train from Florenco, and reached a point a mile belorT Cash's houso just, before daylight. The house was at onco quietly sur rounded, and the posso waited for daylight. At about G o clock tho elder Cash arose aad appeared at the front door. He espied tho pick ets about the house, and retired within. In about five minutes ho reappeared, armed with a Winches ter rifle and two pistols, and tried to make his escape. He had not proceeded jnore than a hundred yards from his house before he was confronted by John II. Pearson, ono of tho sentinels, who presented his rifle and demanded Cash's surrender. Cash hesitated, and Pearson said: "Drop your gun, or I'll ahoot you in two seconds." Cash dropped his gun quickly and admitted having been tako com pletely by surprise. When captured he was endeavoring to make his .way to a log house across the rail road track, where young Cash was said to be sleeping. Tho posse then closed in and searched the Cash mansion thoroughly but could find nothing of Bogan Cash. A party then started for tho log house. When they were half way there Col. Cash, evidently becoming alarmed for his son's safety, made a proposition to go to the log house alone, if allowed to do so, and pledg ed kis sacred honor that he would have his son surrender within two hours. His proposal was accoeded to and the force recalled. Cash went and soon returned, saying that his son had left the house an hour be fore, and that ho did not know where ho had gone. Ho offered however, if tho posso would with draw that his son would surrender before Wednesday. Ho frankly add ed that he only wanted "to come off with flying colors," that neither ho nor his son desired to effect a cap itulation on his own terms. Bearing in' mind the instructions of Gov. Thompson, that Cash should be captured before he had a chanoo to surrender, Chief State Constable Richbourg declined theso terms, Cash then made another proposi tion, and finally offered to lot Rich bourg go with him to hunt his son, promising that he would surrender within twenty-four hours if the posso were dispersed. This was tak en as an evident weakening, and was promptly decliBed by Richbourg. Tho premises were then surrounded by a guard, with instructions to al low no one to pass in or out of tho picket line. Cash's pistols and rifle were taken from him. He protest ed bitterly against this, but said ho yielded only to superior numbers. Capt. Riehbourg, being deter mined to let nothing prevent tho most thorough search for young Cash, left most of his men at tho house, and at 9 o'clock this morn ing went to Cheraw to summon a larger posse of horsemen with which to enter tho swamp and track tho fugitive to his hiding place. Hois supposed to bo near Cash's depot, on an island in- ; tho Peedoo swamp. Arriving at' Cheraw at 10 o'clock, Capt. Richbourg called on tho In tendant and authorities for the foreo he desired, fifty: men. Tho addition al posse is now being made up. Capt Richbourg will make no treaty with the Cashes. Up to-10 p.- m. to-night the posso had not succeeded in effecting tho the capture of Cash. Ho is still sup posed to be hiding in the" Peodeo swamp.: 1 Col B. B. C.
