Though there are four profusvly ill ustrated papers in the June Century, and four full-page pictures, this num ber of the magazine is perhaps even more notable for its literary features than foi in pictures. Of special inter- st is Miss Fanny Stone's "Diary of n Amcti. an Girl in Cairo during the War of 18S2." It is a vivid and remark able narrative of the life ef Geceral C. P. Stone's family during the month that the mother and daughters were exposed in Cairo to the greatest uncertainties and dangers' while General Stone was at his post With the Khedive, and aid ing in the English operations against Arabl. General Stone, in a prefatory letter, teverely criticises the English attack upon Alexandria. In a paper on 'The Use and Abuse of Parties," Dr. Washington Gladden advises independents te try to act with their pany In llicchoice of candidates, and to blt bad nomination. In "Tepics f the Time" an cditerial called "Reaping the Whirl n lad," 13 a sequel to the editorial of the April Century en titled "Mob and Magistrate," which so urpibingly anticipated the Cincinnati riot. Another editorial ia the June number relates to another phase of the riot the militia and the measures Con gress ought t take to increase its efficiency. The illustrated papers f the Juuc Century, in their order, are "A French-American Sea-port," being; an account of the Island of St. Pier re, near Newfoundland, and a part of Mr. S. G. W. Benjamin's series describing hi j cruise- in the Alice Jfay; a pictur esque anecdotal description of the sea man's retreat on Staten ' Ialaud, or "S-uIors'Snugllarbor," to which paper belongs the frontispiece of the number, and c ngravmg from St. GAuden's status of Robert Richard IUndall, the fund -r Snug Harbor; "American Wild Ani mals in Ait," with illustrations from the sculptures t f Edwaid Kereeys; and a curious and scholarly paper, iutereit lagly illustrated, on "Commerce ia the Clonis." In fiction Henry Jame's new story, "Lady Barbcrloa," in this number, concerns itself w ith (lie c tri plications of marriage settlements; Mr. Cable's "Dr. Sevier" is continued; and Rbert Grant's stary of "An Average Man" is concluded.

IiL'tledge, Tenn., Maj 19 Ta the Editor of Tha Morristown Oazetta: An intelligent correspondent of The Gazette, a few weeks ago spoke of Bean Station, Tat Spring and the College just crectei by the ilisses Ilarman, as being located in the central part of East Tennessee. He also speaks of the peace and qui etude that will now surround the neighborhood of Bean's Station, by having an incorporated school. He saj the incorporation will stop the sale of poisonous liquors where Cliuch and the roughs of Skinfoot meet in mortal conflict often unto death. We ask the correspondent what tho corporation has got to do with Mark Monroe's still-house and Newman's ridge whisky? The Vir ginia College may close out Bill Al len in the course of timo, but we dare eay if Mr. Allen thought he was doing the good people of Bean's Station an injustice by selling whis kies, he would pull up stakes atone and get out of the way. Just here we would like to say a few words for tho enlightenment of your many readers in Grainger county, and es pecially for the good people of tho neighborhood of Bean's Station. Wo havo known Bill Allen for ten years. He came from North Carolina, an humble shoemaker. lie put up a shop at Bean's Station; worked hard; attended to his own business and mado a good living, notwithstand ing he is a cripple and has all his ife wont on crutches. Now, we ask tho people of Bean's Station who. has done more by tho sweat of his brow to enhance tho value of Bean's Station property than Bill Allen? He built the first house ever erected at the Station on a lot known as town lots. The scarcity of building material and high prices paid work men caused his failure; so he sold his property, payed every dollar he owed, rented a shop and resumed his work. Being an honost and in dustrious workman he built up a good trade, soon recovered his loss es, bought another let and retted anothf.r nico residence and boot and shoe shop. By this time his wifo's health failed her. He gave up his shop work to wait upon and nurse her, and his business wentdown. He lost his wife. Being a man of great energy ho never gave up. He did not say that the protracted illness of his wife and tho heavy doctor bills had broken him up or disheartened him. He sold his property tho sec ond time and paid off all his debts and erected a handsome monument over the resting place of his belov ed wife. Mr. Allen's friends, seeing that ho was ai honest and industri ous man. solicited him to run for cauutv court clerk. He became a candidate Jand made a good race, though he was beaten by a few votes. Ho went homo, buckled on his work apron and went to making boots and shoes. By this time with all his bad luck and misfortunes his health fail ed him, aud not willing to ask the people for fcharity support, he was induced to go into the whisky busi ness at Bean's Statiou. By it ho has made a support; otherwise he would havo had to live off the charity of the public. But I suppose the Vir ginia College will take the crutches from under him and start him back to North Carolina. The beautiful Bean's Station . valley is becoming very unhealthy and it may be nec essary to erect a drug store at th Station. So, Billie, it you are forc ed into the drug busines I caution you to fill tho proscriptions careful 4y and make no mistakes. NOT ALL HOUGHS. Speaking of the roughs of Skin foot and Clinch, we would sajr that each of theso noted localities is com ing to the front. Tho leading men of our ancient town are troru those places. Prof. Walker, of Madison Academy, is from North Clinch and i- doing moro to advance the cause of education than any other man who has been connected with our schools at this place. We would not forgtt to mention that C. F. Alex ander, our druggist, was raised in Wildcat Hollow, with nothing but German creek to cut him loose from the roughs of Skinfoot. (J ray and Dodson, our leading merchants, are from Skinfwot, ono from the central part and one from the kuobs. THE ANCIENT TOWN. I'utledgo is located in the central part of Grainger county, in the beautiful Bichland valley, noted for its wealth, health and beauty. It has a splendid court house, kept up in the finest 6tyle by the manage ment of our accommodatiue, amia ble and popular sheriff, Jerry Jarni gan, a young man who by his hon esty and eobriety has been our sher iff for four years and is new a tandi dato for re election with bright pres pocts awaiting his future success. Butledgo has three dry goods stores, ouo drug store, three churches, a splendid hall, tlfrco hotels, with ta bles supplied vfitU tho best tho country affords, two livery stables, kept up in the latest style, also some very fine residences, the most noted being that of our attorney general, A. S. Tate, who has a fine farm in a high state of cultivation stocked with the finest Shorthorns and Jei seys to be found ia the State. He is also the owner of "Stonewall," the finest horse that now treads the val lies f East Tennessee. So we would say to thoso who speak of Rutledge as being ancient that, wo art up to modern times, and in fact a little apast the average East Tennessee towns. Yours truly, " Ancient." SENS A TIONA L 3 UICID E. A KENTUCKY JUDGE IN A FIT OF DE PRESSION KILLS HIMSELF. Mt. Sterling, Kt., May 15. This community was thrown iuto the wildest excitement about 11 o'clock by the startling announce ment that Judge Eeid had commit ted 6uicide. Judge Boid was cow hided recently by Lawyer Corneil- son. l or the past tew clays hi friends had noticed that he was con siderably depressed in spirits, and commented on it. But he had just returned from a canvass of this (Ap- plegate) district, and had been in close consultation with his friends as to the advisability of still remain ing in the field, as he appeared dis couraged at the outlook. This morn ing he was more cheerful and in better spirits than ho had been for some weeks, and was hopeful of tlie canvass, ana naa maao arrange monts to visit different portions of tho county during the week. His mental aberration must havo come upon him suddenly, doubtless su perinduced by a pain in his head of which ho complained to Judge Breek. It appears that ho went into Judge Breck's law-office about half- past 10 this morning, and told him he would like to go up stairs, as he was suffering from severe headache Judge Breck after a lapse of an hour went up-stairs and was horri fied to see Judge Beid stretched out n the floor dying, his head ljin in a pool of blood and a pistol on tho floor by his side. The follow ing note, written on,, the back of a businces-card, vfyr&x "Mad, mad! Forgive nWftte"ar wile,' and love to tho boy." It is not signed, but is in the handwriting of Judge Beid. It is a singular futt that no one heard tho report of the pistol. The weapon used by Judgo Beid was one he kept at his house, but never carried. It appeared to have been just loaded. A great sensation has been caus ed at Greenbrier White Sulphur Springe, Ya., by the elopement of Miss Ella Farrer, daughter of J. II Farrer, with John Biggs. Biggs's attentions to the young woman had been bitterly opposed by the Farrer family. The father was absent from homo when the couple left, but his son apprised him of the departure of the lovers, and procuring a bug- gy, the two started in pursuit. Biggs and Miss Farrer, unconscious of tho chase, arrived at the river and entering a skiff, started across Hardly had they left the bank, however, when the pursuers dathed down to tho shore. Jumping into another boat, the father and son gave chase, at the came time calling upon the lovers to stop. This call was unheeded. About half way across the river, the boat containing the fugitives was overhauled, and dropping their oars, the father and son spranjr into Bicrsrs's boat. The former grappled with Biggs. A strurrlo ensued in the moonlight between the two men, in the course of which the skiff was overturned. Tljo brother, who had in the mean time succeeded in getting his sister into the other boat, reached the shore in safety, but father aud lover were both drowned. The . next morning a searching party found tho body of Biggs lodged against a pile of drift. Mr. Farrer's body has not yet been discovered. Serious trouble was reported last week at the Bising Fawn furnace, Georgia, owned principally by Sen ator Brown, who is discharging his free white laborers and filling their places with nogro convicts. When Capt. W. I). Grant recently sold out his leas of a portion f the convicts Senator Brown purchased about oeventy-five. Ho had under his former lease a sufficient force of con victs at tho coal mine?, and a day or two ago notices were posted at tho iron 'works to tho effect that in a few days the free laborers would be discharged and their place sup plied by convicts. Tho free labor ers aro greatly excited, and some of them are said to be counselling re sistance by force. They affirm that their discharge comes upon them unprepared and subjects them and their families to enforced idleness and hardships at a very critical sea son of the year. They have Bent a protest to Senator Brown, fUUUiog their grievances, and are waiting his reply. The men have been in formed that if they resist tho em ployment of convicts the whole pow er of the State will be usod against them, and this but enrages them the more. EXPENDITURE FOR DKINK. Tho following diagram, from the Interior, is a comparison of the an nual expenditure in the United States for intoxicating liquors, with various other of the largest items of expenditure. It is based on the census of 1830 and other f reliable authorities. Scale: bach three-fourths of an inch repre- sents an expenditure of 100, FJ 000,000.

Com ments upon a showing so appall ing would only weaken the pow er of truth. JUDGE KEY ON THE TARIRF. TENNESSEE A TARIF F STATE. A Washington Special to the Thi! adelphia Times, of the 18th, says: Ex-Postmaster General Ke3r, now Judge of the Eastorn and Middle district of lennesseo,- has been in the city for sevefal dayk He had a very pleasant call on tio President, having met at the same time Secre tary of State Freiinghuysen, who was a Senator of the United States when Judge Key was a member of that exalted body. Speaking ot the business, indus trial and political situation in his section of Tennessee, Judge Key said that tho people are prosperous and happy: that the State was never in better shape than it is now, and that as far as he had been able to judge the people were not in favor of this persistent agitation of the tan tr. Ho said: "Tennessee is a tariff State and tho peoplo aro opposed to any legis lation which will interfere with tho proper protection ot American in dnstrr." In reply to a question about the vote of Mr. Dibrell Judge Key said "Mr. Dibrell represents tho dis trict in which I reside, and I know that his votes with Mr. Morrison on the tariff aro not approved by his constituents. I believe he justifies his course by saying that he voted in that way hoping that the bill might bo amended so as to meet the views of the two wings of tho party and thus form tho basis of a com promise. But that doos not seem to satisfy public sentiment. Tho peo pie are not willing to commit their interests to tho mercy of experi mental politics. They believe in letting well enough alone. As I have said, Tennessee is a tariff State and the people next time will gee that thei'e is no doubt about her rep resentatives on that point. It would seem that tho Bepublieans might have a chance in Tennessee. I neti er care to say much about politics. I try to keep out of politics, but it surely does ;look that way. There was a time when tho Democratic majority ran close up to a . hundred thousand and at tho last election it had fallen to twenty thousand. So you see the majority is being grad ually whittled down. The chiet ob struction in tho way of Bepublican success in tho State seems to bo in efficient party leadership. .1 say this, however, not upon any person al knowledge of tho matter, but from current comment and v very general complaint among tho peo ple. The industries ot lennessoe are growing in importance from year to year, and the peoplo must havo tho guarantees ot sale admin istration of public affoirs. . . The country suffers much from these in cessant agitations." It is stated in Washington upon what is said to be excellent authori ty that Senator Anthony will resign his seat next week or, at tho latest, the week following. Ill-health is assigned as tho cause of the step contemplated by him. Tho doctors consulted by him havo unanimous ly declared that ho caunot perform the clutios of tho office, except at tho risk of his life. Senator Anthony has been in tho Senate for fivo con secutive terras, having been elected for tho last timo in 1882. Ho en tered it in 1859, and is therefor by many years the senior member of the body. In 18C9, and again in 1871, he was chosen President pro tempore, 1 I rrl 2 rl 2 -I s 1 s g- tl o j 8 9 t Z 2 - -i P B -5 i " o- Jf J H l el J 8 If 3 lilt ' " ' M ii pi ,i -- f a c if i a ? : a i s U I !i j n i 1 1 I M i I 1 I H M ; I I 1 I M 1 1 1 I Ji LLUUy ULr VENUS AND THE EARTH. Yenus will bo tho lovtliest star in the heavens through tho month of May, as after elongation sho tunn her steps westward, moving rapidly toward us, and hasteniug on to hr period of greatest brillianey. Sh will form a delightful planetary study for tho naked eye, and also for telescopic observation. Se through tho telescope at elongation or a few days after, she takes on the aspect of tho moon at her last quar ter, half her disk bing illumined. Then, like the moon, sh becomes a waning crescent,' loss and Jess of hr enlightened surfae being turned toward, but increasing in six as sho approach toward us, more than enough to counterbalance tho less ened light. At the end of th month she ha nearly reached her culminating point, while her high northern declination adds to th length of her tay above th hori zon and the favorable conditions for observation. The beautiful planet is especially interesting on aetount of tho striking resemblance sh bears to the arth. In size, in den sity, in position in tho system, in tho length of her revolution, in tho time of her rotation, in tho posses sion of an atmosphere, in tho form of her orbit, and in tho amount of light and heat she receives from th sun, sho is more like tho earth than any other momber of tho solar sya tom. Sh is our nearest planetary neighbor, and, if a moon were fol lowing in her traek to complete th analogy, Yanus and tho earth would ba the twin sisters of th solar fam ily. Indeed, tho plasets soeui to b in pairs; Jupiter aud Saturn ar tho giants of the family; Neptuno and Uranus follow next to tho gutnts, and Mars aud Mercury com plete the list. 1857 AND ISSA. New York Sun. The year 1857, th year f finan cial panic, was marked also by a re ligious revival of extraordinary pro portions. Daily prayer meetings wore hold in Fulton and John streets, and were crowded with bus iness men. The churches could not hold all who hungered for apiritual food, aud theatres wero turned iuto temples of worship whereiu both clergymen and laymen exhorted sinners to repent of their sins and flee from the wrath to come. Great numbers of converts were made while the religous excitement lastod, and tho attention of tho peo ple of New York was largely con centrated on tho srubjeet of tho sal vation of their souls. Even in count ing rooms and warehouses the fre quent theme of conversation was experimental religion. Merehants inquired of their clerks as to their spiritual wolfare, and urged then to be punctual at prayer meeting. Men had found by sad exerienco that earthly treasures melted away, and wero impelled to see-k tho en during heavenly riches. Trade wan so dull that they could easily spare time for prayer, and they improved the opportunity. Well-known mer chants led the prayer meetings, and tho supplieations wero interspersed with exhortations to sinners uttered by mon fresh from tho counting houses. These financial tribulations havo come upon us, they said, to teach us how vain aro the things of this world, and how imporativo is our need of heavenly treasures. That extraordinary religous ex citement was known as tho great awakening, and during its continu ance it was tho absorbing sensation of the day. The newspapers were full of it, and it extended through out the Union. Only a little over a quarter of a century has passed since, but is there any possibility of a repetition of that great religious revival in New York? The present is unquestionably a very fit timo for such a revival. During the last three years, assured ly, men ought to have been taught the instability of earthly wealth. The financial market, instead of im proving, has been steadily growiug worse, and nobody dares prodiet when tho bottom will be reached. Even Mr. Jay Gould and Mr. Yan derbilt are powerless to hold up prices? and the Hon. Russell Sage, himself a pious man, no longer von tures to sell puts and calls. But we discover no signs of a relig ious revival. The merchants are not going to prayer meetings in business hours. Tho churches have no occasion to hold special ser vices, and many of them aro never full even on Sunday. So far from there being any re vived interest in religion, we hear rather complaints of the indifference of the peoplo to religion. Doubt and skepticism prevail as never be fore. The prayer meetings are neglected, and the preachers ad dress unresponsive and unsympa thetic congregations. What is meaning of this change since 1857? Can it bo that the 11- , nancial disasters, which have come upon us, havo not yet chastened our business men, and that still greater calamities aro necessary to awaken them to their wickedness and their dangers?
