Details of the Lexington Hor- t'Oft A dispatch published on vcMcrday from Lexington, Mo gave nn account, but not full dctnlK of n horrible mur der and siilchlo combined which occur red at that place on tlio night of Sun day last, or rather at about a o'clock on Monday morning. It appears from u ills-patch to thu Kansas City Times Unit about seven years since a man anil wife, Mr. nnd Mrs. lici t. H. Johnson, agreed titter u few years of happiness In married life to separate, w filch was accordingly done, tlio husband going to Ids olii home ut Lexington, Ky., and the wife remaining with her parent nt Lexing ton, Mo. The wish to part was mutual, and con-ctpicntly regretted by neither. He has since remained iu ids native state, slio in tho place which stilled her best, and no correspondence has been known to have ever passed between them from the lime of their separation to that of their last mid fatal meeting. From what can bo learned ho had frequently heard reports in regard lo his former wlte In themselves mi In still to tho honor of any respectable woman and chanelni: oh Sunday to lie In tho vlclnit, of their old and' mu tual home, ho resolved to prove the correctness of what ho had so olten been Informed. Tho years which had passed since they had last met, bad so materially altered hN general features that ho was not recognized, and. no doubt with Joy, lie perceived ills little game to bo succeeding well. Tntcrrogatlng her as to whether bo could obtain lodging for tlio night, lie was answered In tho alllrmative nnd was sitown to lier own apartments Together thoy now prepared themselves to pass mo uignt and both retired. To n certainty ho was naw assured that ins informants wero In tho right in their lii-diinatlons questioning her cluiMiv, nml drawing a revolver, deter, mined to end at once both their un happy and unfortunate lives. Pointing t lie deadly weapon fhll In her face, ho tired, tho ball entering tho right cheek bone, naln'' upward, and theneo through the skull. Ascertaining to a surely mat slio was no more, bis next act was to dNpoc of himsclt, which end was accomplished iu the samo inannoi', tlio ball entering Ids right temple, killing him Instantly. Tho noise of the tiring soon brought other parties to the door of tlio bed chamber, which, being locked on the inside, nece-wltaled bursting through A horrible sight mot the view of In truding pei'-ons. Side bv sldo upon the floor lay husband and wife, while between lliu two bodies lav tho deadly weapon, the eanso of tho double death. The man was nlreadv dead, though the woman was still strnggllnjr to siiialu the Utile life yet remaining in her bleeding body. Tlio cllbrt was iu vain, and though a physician was ln closo at tendance, mid nil wis dono In the pow er of human (o savo her. slio soon breathed her last. And in this manner Is recorded the tragic end of man ami wife, unhappily married. iTohnoii has wealthy paients Iu Lex- Inclon, Ky., and Ills remains will pro bably be removed to that place for In terment. Tho nirnlr 1ms created no lit tle excitement in tho vicinity of North Lexington. An Inquest was' held dur ing the afternoon ot tho samo day, which resulted, In both cases, of "dentil by pistol bull." A later dispatch received from Lex ington stales that Johnson was found lying in death with his skull beat in apparently with a club. Tho dispatch also states t lint A. M. Johnson, n pait ncr o.'tho murdered man, wn arrested at tlio samo placo on yeastcrday morn ing, for liorso stealing and taken fo Itlchmond for rafo keeping. Tho wliolo nlfalr seems as yet shrouded In mys tery, soino saying that both man and wlto wero murdered by soino other party or parties while asleep. Tho matter will probably bo fully cleared up and rt correct stntenu'iit given In u few days.

Tho prudent wife sent it n second time to the market, and sold It again lor a haiKUomo sum, Another friend, similarly struck with tho inagnlileeut propoiilou of ihe lur key, purchased it, and also sent It to tho parson. Not wishing to lly In tho uu u wi rjiitKiL'uuu, mo goon man said at last, "It is very clear that tho Lord means us to navo mis turkey," and, with tliu entire approbation of lite fatnllj.

Infidels havo objected to the slue of tne ni K; nave ascrtcii mat it is absurd lo suppose that ever there could be a vessel constructed largo enough to hold nil tlio creatures which must have been placed In It, with siiillctcnt food, It mnj' be, for six or twelve months water for fish, com for the four-footed animal", seed for birds, and so on. Now wo will take the dimensions of the ark from the records of Moses, and calcti laic them on the lowest possible scale. There nro two definitions given to u cubit, one that Is eighteen Inches, or a foot mid a half, aud tho oilier that Is twenty inches. Wo will take It only nt the lowest. Moses stntes that the ark was lioo cubits long ; this would mako It 150 feet long, about the length of St. Paul's cathedral, Loudon. Tho breadth ho states to be filly cubits; we havo It hcvcnty-flve feet lu breadth. He states It to be thirty cubits high; so that was forty-five feet high. In other words, It was as long as St; Paul's cathedral, nearly as broad, ami halftis high. Thu tonnage of tlio ark, accord ing to the computation of modern carpenters, must have been .'li'.OOO tons. The largest sized Ivtigllsh ship (of a slzo altogether unimaginable to thoo who have never seen It) Is n ,V00 tons burden ; so tho .irk must havo been equal to twenty-six llrstnito ships ol war, and If armed a such ships are, It would have contained 18,- ouo men. nnd provisions for them eighteen months, llufl'ou has nsscited that all four-footed animals may be re duced to '.'.iO pairs, and tho birds to n still smallu number. On calculating, therefore, we shall filial that thu ark would have held more than live times the required quantity of food to main tain them twelve months. Cnristinn Aih'ocalc.

If present Indication point toward Ihe truth, this will prove to bo u good year for tho fanners.

He has also expressed himself on (ho Indian question lately In a man ner which deserves notice. Just ns long ns ouo Indian remains in this country, ho thinks, there will bo war between them and tho whites; nntl whether tho red men bo ruled with tho sword or tho Bible, there can bono last ing peace, 'there is but ono way. ho continues, to effect peace and tliat Is the total extermination of tho unlucky race. We think thu Indians are now and always havo been grossly misused, which has been the chief causo of their iliiilidivcness and warllko demon- Mi nt inns. For Instance, wo have nt the picseiii tlmo that false distribution by Indian agents.
