Harris ("Siht Lovengood"), whose death was announced a day or two ago, died rather miysteriously, and it is be lieved at Knoxville that he was poisoned. While on his way from Richmond, Va., to his home at Decatur, Ga., he was found lying between two seats in a railroad car in an insensibine condition, near Bristol. He was shotn no attention until he arrived at Knoxville, where he was taken to a hotel, and where he had many friends, who did all they could for him. In answer to - question. of one of his physicians he. utter ed the woord "poisoni," which was ithe only word he spoke after his arrival at Knoxville. There were half a dozen doctors present, one of whom thought Capt. Harris had died of apoplexy, while the rest ascribed his death to mor phia. No Ipost-mortem examina tion was made. The woman's rights bill which has passed the territorial legisla ",u'e Of Wyoming, apd been alp lfr yved b' tue governor of that tersitory, provides "that every woman of the. age of twenty-one years, residing'in this territory, may.. at every election to be hol den under the -laws thereof, cast her vote. And her rights to the elective franchise and to hold office shall be the same under the election laws of the territory as those of electors." Congress can I amend this law, but it is not like ly that it will do so, A Scrap of History -Burr, Wilkinson and Scott. A contributor to the Natchez Courier furnishes that paper with the following recital of an event which occured in the early history of Mississippi: Next to Aaron Burr, the great est enigma in American history is General James-Wilki~nson. Ele-ha been st ore prWled and more d ' Jaoaneed than -any other"~~ma his time. 5e was recevigng baee. ke ; co=mplicity with Bnurr ai vita incompetenitadministrationofthiD 7th military didtrict. Il- 1899tl troops that had been cantoned be-` low New Orleans were attacked with a great deal of sickness and many died. They were moved up to our little town of VWashington, Gen. Wade Hampton was in noln inal command, while GeneralVWil kinson was at Washington Oity attending his trial. WilkinMso was honorablyacquitted, but just. at this juncture an ineident corred that had a ma terial 1, upon the destiuny o a e iewrn of mark. Among thtrse toned there was a young-Ca~a of Infantry just twenty-three years/ of age. He-was a giant in stature; like Sautl the son of Kish, he stood a head and shoulders above his fellows; he was six feet-flve inches in height and splendidly propor tioned. Phis young Captain -was no friend of Wilkinson. At a public table in the tavern at- Washington, the conversation happened to turn -upon the Burr conspiracy. The young-..Captain was one of the party, The argue ment grew exciting; the, young Captain sprung tp and publioly proclaimed that he never kfiew but two traitors, one -was -Bnrr and the other was Gen. James Wilkinson; he further said, Gen. - Wilkinson was a liar-and a scoun-. drel. Of course this startling de-, ndnciation from a subordinate of -fleer created an immense sensa tion. - Gen. Wilkinson was immediate ly informed of the matter, and the young Captain was placedl under arrest and court martailed The charges against him were for conduct ungentlemanly and un becoming an officer, in withhold-. tng moioey from his troops and for speakiig disespectfully of his- superior officer. He-owas found guilty of detaining a portion of the funds' from his -troops; but with no criminal intention; and he was found guilty of the charg on. -unofficer like conduct;in spekirng . disrespectfully of his superiors. He was suspended from serviee for ten months, but with a re commendation for removal of sus pension. This had a material effect upon his military career. He left-Mis-f sissippi, went to his friendtWViek-. ham's, in Virginia, and there de voted himself to intense study of military science. When the war with Great Britain broke out, his.! sword sprung from its scabbard at Chippewa, Niagara, andat.Lufay's Lane, he dashed like Murat at the head of his squadron, into-the thickest of. the fight; everywhere he appeared,-through the-war, he. was one of our Paladins; the very embodiment of headlong chivalry. As age tempered his euthustasm he combined skill with. couage. He was the main instrument in terminating the Seminole war. In after timeie e landed at Vera Cruz amidst the most magniflcentit bombardment that the world ever saw. With a mere handful ot men, comparatively, he marched onward and npward, through Mo linia Del Rer, .her~,buseo and 'Ohepdltepec. He'placed the stars and stripes, upon the grtahd palace of the City of Mexico and turned to receive the plaudits, not only of his own country, but also of the world, as the greatest captain of his age. He was victorious while he served his whole country, but alas! when, like Coriolanus, he had, by the force of circumstances or ambition, or a sense of duty, to turn his sword against the bosom of his own mother State, it was shivered to the hilt in the frst battle of Manassas. With Amer ican soldiers fighting for Am erica he was invincible; but withAmer lean soldiers fighting against his hearthstone, his mighty argi fell paralyzed and his star set in the midst of clouds and thick dark ness, while the storm was still .raging.around us.

P.--The election to the British House of Oaemiions of this bitter Fenian and convic,, who "is reirka-'. ble,'" says the London Speetatot, "among his-fellow pri8oners- only for the violence with which he has' conducted himself stace . he was immured," is a confirmed tact. Tipperary is the countywtich has chosen him. The Cork Exanminet tells us that the event .wasL - eel brated by a torchlight proceession of twelve thqusand men in. that country, accoimanied by 15and. The London Tirmes confeses its ailarm at this state of 'a1airs in Ireland, and says that "'the -ation is rapidly beconming demoraliset, and that the fnctionaa of Goveth inent are fallinginto desuastude."
