It is said that Gen Grant was a largo stockholder in these mines.

String ed instruments, ho said, were good enough for David, and were good enough for tho Christians of to-day. Bemcnyi set down on the pulpit steps and played, while the congre gation sat and listened. At tho close of his first selection a wave of aps plause started Mr. Beecher to chock it, sajing : "I should be sorry to have you applaud ono of my prayers. Half our church music is a prayer." llemenyi then played tho Hungaris an national church hymn, and Mr. Bechor thanked bimsayingtbatho hoped that in his own country, to which he is about to return, be would find oao thousandth part of the happiness ho had caused in this country.

HELL'S UOLE, X BAND OF MURDEROUS 0UTLAW8 UN EARTHED IN MONTGOMERT COUNTY". $2. Clarksville, Tenn., June Deputy Sheriff D. "W. Taylor 2. and posse succeeded in ferreting out old band f outlaws and makincr soreral arrests. The parties brought in are Mr. Ransom Morrow and two 6ons, William and Charles, William Outlaw and Darid Horn. Outlaw and Horn were released to-daj.on a - bond of 6250 each for their appear anco as witnesses against the Mors rows. These men are charged with murder, arson, theft and other crimes. Ransom Morrow is about sixty years of age, and lives near Oakwood in this county, fifteen miles from town, and has four grown sons. Notwithstanding he is a dea con and leading member in the ehurcb, it appears that ho and his boys and tho gang have been ter rorizing over tho community for tho past twenty years, managing to keep their damnable deeds conceal ed beyond any proof, and the citi- I VARO oTwaii Vi at m flwtww Ana r a- 4-1 am I w uuu uj owu34uuiu I f Vk neon nantl r f Visit hnvrA toiimo1 am , T .

Some fourteen years ago they gave out their Ivuklux siSn3 keeping the community in constant dread- Sme dozen er I m nre 'AT QTrAfitAi onrl hnf . A r . , . A, clear- -Later, a stranger visiting the community with considerable mo ney, suddenly disappeared and nev er has been found. Several men mysteriously disappeared, and now and then a horse was stolen, some one's barn was broken open and to bacco missing, meat houses and corn cribs were robbed, houses were burned and residences broken open and clothing and bedding stolen. An undercurrent of suspicions point ed to the Morrows, but no ono dared to hint. Eight yeai-3 ago, Dr. Pete Bella my, a son-in-law of Morrow, had a fuss with an old negro, Jesse Brown, about a house Brown had rented from Tom G. Keatts, which Bellamy wanted and tho negro refused to give up until his year was ut. Very soon Jim Brown was killed, shot in tho woods while at his work, clearing, and brush piled on his body and set on fire. Bellamy was tried for tho murder, and, by the evidence of tho Morrows and the theory of the defense that Keatts was the guilty man, on the ground that the negro was owing Iveatts, Bellamy was cleared, and now the proof comes to light the Morrows killed Brown at the instance of BeN lamy, and that the latter was close by and saw it done. Bellamy, is now on trial before tho District Jus tice, charged with breaking and robbing tho house of Bailey Winn, of bed clothing, etc., soma of whieh has been discovered in possession of his family. Some eighteen years ago an old man by tho name of Sleigh was kill ed, who was doubtless ono of the band, and soon after the Bellamy trial young Thos. J. Sleigh, who knew all tho facts, commenced talk ing freely about the Morrows and the murder of Jim Brown, and the Morrow boys managed to get Sleigh out hunting when Ben Morrow kill ed him. ' They claimed that it was an accidental shot, and made pre tentions to great grief over tho mat ter, but Ben Morrow was indicted for th murder and ran away and his whereabouts has never been dis covered. A man by . tho name of Paco also knew the facts in regard to tho killing of Brown and ran away from the neighborhood for far the Morrows would kill him. Any number of little depredations and thiovings have been committed, and lately the residence of Mrs. Conway, a widow lady, was burned. She rebuilt and the new house was burned tho first night afler it was furnished. The evidence pointed to Morrow, but no one dared to accuse at the risk of. his life. A negro, Dick Overton, was employed on Morrow's farm and Morrow was in debted to him sixty, dollars. Over ton eoncluded to move to Alabama and wanted his money. He was a thrifty negro and had money be sides this debt. This was about the first of last September, when Oyer ton suddenly disappeared, and the Morrows gave . it out that he had gone to Alabama: Very soon Char lie Morrow was seen at a wedding with Overton's new auit of clothes on, which he claimed to have bought in town. ' Overton's father recog nized the clothes and suspected foul play, but dared not breath e it. He inquired after his son "but .could never hear of him. Tho robbery of tho Winn House has load to the discovery of Overton's Tbody jn the Bellamy cave, which was easily identified by his hat, -clothing and pipoket-knife, Wina procured a search warraat, and, with tbo of- ficers, went to Dr. Bellamy's to hunt their festivals around the midnight his stlen goods. Bellamy invited throne are set so far above the grasp them to Bearch the huse, but, con- of our limited faculties, forever mock- fident that the articles had concealed elsewhere, they went to glory?

Seven hundred yards in the cave, on the right, is a small, deep, dark cavern, whieh is supposed to De a bottomless pit and has never been emlorfid railed "TTaII'h TTftl - it wa3 in this holo that the body Dick Overton was found. It seems that the murderers were careless and failed to push the body entires ly over the precipice, and it lodged on a ledge of rock near the top. Since the arrests were made, Over ton and Horn tell the whole story as told thorn by Bill and Charlie Morrow; how the' marched Overton to the cave and shot him with a doublcbarrel gun and dragged him in the cavo to Hell's Hole. Also Paco has put in an appearance with testimony as to the killing of old man Brown. Another horrifying instance of their deviltry is told by an old negro man whom they beat nearly to death and then punched out one eyo with a stick. The old man was afraid to tell it and al ways explained the matter as an ac cident. These discoveries have caused intense excitement and the Morrows will unquestionably have to suffer the penalty of their crimes The preliminary -investigation will commence Wednesday, and the most shocking developments may be expected. Tennorrow, Deputy Taylor will explore Hell's Hole to see what further discoveries can be made. The Morrows are respect ably related; also Dr. Bellamy, who is the son of a distinguished Metho uist minister wuo died some years LINCOLN TO HOOKER. A REMARKABLE LETTER FROM THE WAR DEPARTS! ENR ARCHIVES. Chicago Tribune. President Lincoln had trouble" with the fiery Gen Jo. Hooker, who was angry at tho appointment of Burnside as commander of the Potomac army. Subsequently Hook er was appointed to command it, and then Lincoln wrote him a re markable letter. This letter, says tho Washington correspondent ofthe Boston Herald, was given to Col. Robert N. Scott, of the war department, by Hooker himself, and the original is now in tho archives. It is one of the most notable productions ever written by President Lincoln. Somo parts of it are fairly Shakespearean in die ticn and thought. It is as follows : "Executive Mansion, Washing ton D. C, Jan. 26, 18C3. To Maj. Gen. Hooker. General : I have placed you at the head ofthe Army of the Potomac. Of course I have done this upon what appears to me to be sufficient reasons, and yet I think it best for you to know that there are some things in regard to which I am not quite satisfied with you. I believe you to bo a brave and skillful soldier, which, of course, I like. I also believe you do not mix politics with your profession, in which you are right. You have confidence in your self, which is a valuable, if not an indispensable,' quality. You are ambitious, which, within reasonable bounds, does good rather than harm. But I think that, during Gen. Burnside's eem mand ofthe army, you have taken counsel of your ambition and thwart ed him as much as you could, in which you do a great wrong, both to the country and the most merito rious and honorable brother officer. I have heard, in such a way as to believe it, of your recently saying that both the army and the govern ment needed a dictator. Of course it was not for this, but in spite of it, that I have given you a command. Only those generals who gain suc cesses can set up as dictators. What I ask of you is military success, and I will risk the dictatorship. The government will support you to the utmost of its ability, which neither more nor less than it has dono and will do for all commanders. I much fear tho spirit you havo aided to in fuse into the army of criticising their commander and withholding confix dence from him will turn upon you. I shall assiat you as far as I can to put it down. . Neither you nor Na poleon, if he were alive again, could get any good out of an army while such a spirit prevails in it. And now, beware of rashness ! Beware of rashness ! But with energy and sleepless vigilance go forward and give us victories. "Yours very truly, "A. Lincoln." A BEAUTIFUL IDEA. It cannot be that earth is man's only abiding place; it cannot be that our life . is a bubble, cast up by tho ocean of eternity to float for a moment on its waves then sinking into. nothingness. -Else why is it that tho glorious aspirations which leap like angels from tho temple of our hearts are lorever wanaermg about unsatisfied? Why is it that the rainbow and the clouds come over us with a beauty that is not of earth and then "pass off and, leave us to muse upon their faded loyeliotss? Why is It that the stars whjch bold. been I insr us with their unapproachable I It is one f the and I leaving the streams of our affections to flow back in Alpine torrents upn our hearts? We are born for a higher destiny than that of death; thero is I a realm where the rainbow never " I fadns whorft the stars will be snread of out before us like the islets that slumber on the ocean, and where the beautiful bings that there pass before us like shadows, will stay in our presence forever. , ; THE PROniBITIONISTa. Following are the resolutions set ting forth the object and purposes ofthe prohibitionists, adopted in the State convention at Nashville last Thursday : Whereas, the State Prohibition Convention, assembled at Nashville on the 22d of May, 1884, composed of citizens from all parts of the State, having considered the question of prohibition, do deoiare most solemn ly our unalterable and fixed deter mination to use all honorable means to suppress the evils of intemper ance, and which we believe can on ly be dono by prohibition. Firmlv convinced, as we are, of this great evil, we believe that instead of legis lative enactments making the traffic lawful by license, it is better to ap1 peal directly to the good sense and sober judgment of tho people to pro 1e e . . nioit me maicing, importation or selling of intoxicating liquors as a beverage. And we hereby solemn ly declare that tho people them selves have a right to determine for themselves what their preference is on this as on all other subjects of legislation, and we further resolve that anything else then this is not in accordance with the doctrines of a people's government ; therefore, Resolved, that the purpose of this convention is not to further, in any special manner, a discussion of evils growing out of intoxicating liquors; they, if not admitted by all men, are certainly known to all men. Resolved, that tne object of this convention is to put on foot a reme dial movement of the State of Ten. nessee, and it is the sense of this con vention that nothing short of abso lute prohibition the prohibition to include tho making and importation as well as the selling is a remedy and therefore the making, importa tion and selling for use as a bever age should be prohibited. But we recognize the tact that so radical a change in the law, and so sensibly affecting the habits of the people, ought not to be made except by the people themselves, and that by an election in which every man in the State should be allowed to cast his vote. Therefore we are in favor of a constitutional amendment to be submited to the people under the Constitution and that the Legisla ture to be elected this year should be asked to pass, and have submit ted to a vote ofthe people, this ques tion, to wit : . A constitutional amendment embodying the princi pies of prohibition. It isthosenseof this convention that this question should be submitted to the people freed from all other issues, and that it is not for the best interests f the causo that it should, in any sense, be made a partv question, or that , tho friends of prohibition should antago nize political parties by running a prohibition ticket, but it is their right and consistent with the good of tho State and the best interest of the people to have candidates for tho Legislature, of all parties, asked respectfully to define their position on the question of submitting consti tutional amendment on this subject to a vote of the people, the people to decide it at the ballot-box and at a special election. Col. Ethoridge offered the follow ing amendment to tho report : And it is the sense of this conven tion that no true prohibitionist will or ought to vote for any candidate of any party who will riot pledge himself, if elected to the Legislature, to vote according to the principles and purposes herein announced. Col. Alexander McClure, of the Philadelphia Times, is a very shrewd, cool and observant politi cian, and can estimate Presidential probabilities about as close to actual result as any we know. He express ses the belief, in tho last issue of his journal, that "tho Democratic Na tional Convention will declare for a revenue tariff and for severe re venue reform in the broadest and clearest terms, with the approval of Pennsylvania as cordially given as Iowa or Kentucky could give it; but," ho adds, " If a revenue tariff and revenue reform aro to bo inter preted in tho platform to ; mean free trade, or the distinct rejection of every, feature of incidental protec tion, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania,Obio, Indiana, and the Virginias will .be as certain to vote for a Republican President as Iowa and Vermont ; and when the battle shall bo hopelessly lost before it begins, .more than half the South ern.States," would .', cut, loose ..from Democratic stupidity and swell the Republican majority." IVO, BY ICATE THORN. shortest werds in a in tne vrnele Jinghsh Vocabulary. It often requires more courage to say it than it would to walk up to the cannon's mouth. The young man who is starting out in life wants to learn to say no, and to say it in such a manner that all who hear him will know ho means it. 1 ' ' ' ITT l 1 f 11 e . . y nen ne iaiis into tne company of a few good fellows, and the intoxi cating winesbottle is glowing red in tho light of society and good fellow ship, he wants to say no when it is offered for his drinking. And when he is jeered and ridiculed for his Puritanism, as probably he will be, he wants still to say no, and say it with the proud self-respect which every mac should feel when ho puts Satan behind him. . He wants to bo ablo to sav no when he is tempted to dress better than his means, and to borrow money from his eniploj'er's till to do it with. And he wants to say it with an emphasis which shall make itself heard and felt all over the es tablishment. Setting aside all moral and Chris tain considerations, and looking at the thing only in a temporal light, it pays to say no at the right time , jNo man feels any better lor drink ing champagne, and getting up in the morning with a raging headache, and cross enough to split all creation up into kindling wood. The pleaB are of being drunk, if it is a pleas ure is more than canceled by tho wretched sensation which comes af ter a debauch, for if a man feels half as bad as he looks during the inter esting prooeHs of sobering off, ho must be a subject of sympathy for men and angel. Ho wants to be able to say no to propositions innumerable.
