Brandon Republican. We were paiued indeed on last Saturday to hear of tho painful accident which happened to our young friend Lawrence Woodry on Maguolia plantation. It seems that Lawrence was oiling somo part of the machinery when his baud was caught by a wheel and drawn into the machinery and ter ribly mancled. Dr. Furiah, who was immediately called, found it necessary to amputate liis left arm between the elbow and hand, and sow up his head and plaster his faco, both of which were terribly cut. We are clad to leuru that Lawrence is now improving rap idly, and hope to see him out again soon. Mayers ville Spectator. We understand from reliable sources, tuat if tno town or t- nona will re-subscribe tho same amount, $03,000, which was sub scribed somo years ngo, and Cur rollton will ro snbscribo $35,000, her former subscription, tho Geor gia Pacific road will bo pushed right straight throngh, intersecting the Illinois Central at this place, and passing on to the Mississippi river. We nro told that Senator George shows bis approval of tho early building of the rond by offer ing to pay one fifth of Carrollton's subscription money out of his own pocket. This shows cnterpiie, and that General George still lias tho interest of his old home and people at heart, and Carrolltoti will beyond doubt vote tlio sub scription. But wo hear tluro is considerable opposition to tho measure among the hirecst prop ! erty owners ot Winona.

The following is Judge Clayton's address, which was read by the Vice President: Gentlemen of the Bar Association: I take this, the first opportunity which has occurred, to return you my sincere acknowledgments for the high compliment couferred by your selection of tno as your pre siding officer. To lie honored by honorable men is a distinction al ways of high character, and no more honorable body is to be found in any society, than the members of the Bar. You have formed this Associa tion to improve its members as in dividuals and as a body, and to el evate the profession to its highest attainable point. It is a noble ob ject and one which will no doubt be satisfactorily carried out. The profession in every ago has furnished examples of the greatest gouius and tho highest culture, of which a notable instance is fouud in the fact that a very interesting controversy is now in progress to determine whether tho works of the mightiest genius of nil time are really tho works of Shakes peare, w hose tiamo they bear, or of Sir Frauds Bacon, who explo red the limits of all the learning of his tune, and whoso name, al though shadowed by one great fault, utiuuls out in the first and foremost rank of intellectual great ness and judicial strength. The science itself of Law, devo ted as it is to all that men hold dear to the protection of life, liberty, property aud reputation has always and must always num ber among its followers tho high est typos of moral and intellectual capacity. Although tho " mystery of tho law " has beoti the fruitful source of criticism in ullnges, the law itself is for tho most part plain aud unambiguous. But the infinite diversity of human trans actions and interests makes its application to the numerous and changing vicissitudes of life often a difficult task so difficult indeed ns to vendor the minds of tho greatest breadth and most pro found insight its indispensable ministers in every ngo. In pro portion ns civilization advances, the law expands, mid embraces a greater variety of objects, and leaves nothing unprotected; it becomes fitted to "inspect a mite or comprehend the heaven," and finds nothing too small or too great for its care. It is coeval with the earliest formation of so ciety and lusts ns long as society itself does. We cannot conceive of society without it. Cromwell saul ho "put the Par liament in his breeches pocket and tho King in his knapsack," but he let the judiciary alone. Even his stem despotism could not bo main taiued without a seeming ndniinia tration of the Law. ' Wo have all hoard that the at tribute of infallibility is conceded to the Popo in theological matters by the Catholics. Perhaps no 0110 believes it, but it is done because it is necessary to havo somo final lioint, some resting place in all controversies. A similar couccs siou is made in every civilized Stato to tho ultimate and supremo arbiters of tho Law. Their deci sions are not only final, bin the rulo is adopted that they are In fallible. They admit of no further question. Wo may feel confident that u particular decision is wrong, but we admit that it is right, wo succumb to the theory that thoro who pronounced it aro infallible becaiiBO in no other way can the authority of the covermnont be upheld. Hence the imperious no cessitv that tho advocates who argue, and the judges who decide should possess the most elevated moral and intellectual qualities of our nature, heightened and impro ved by till the attainments which study eun compass. A lawyer' education is never completed there is always something beyond to bo maetcred. Iho vast influence ot Law on human tifl'aii's is nowhere more for cibly illustrated than hi the Roman Civil Law. Not only did its routs strike deep into the laws wherever the Roman army went, but the Spaniards anil French carried it with them into the new world wherever their conquests or power extended. This embraced all of South America and much of Xorth Auicri.'B. It was once doubted whether the Spanish law ever had any force or authority m this State, but it is now settled that it never had any except by comity. There was an acrimonious dispute whe ther tho Spanish North boundary was tho mouth of Yazoo river or the 31st parallel, determined final ly us the hitter. None of tho En glish t-taLUos were ever reeo'iil zed as of force in this State unless adopted by competent authority, or us forming a part of its common law. The Law of Katious forms a part of the law of every State; but iu a union like ours, it may be only of tho United States. An instance of the ascendency of the law was afforded by the doctrines of the Christians iu the early stago of their existeuce. That system had overthrown the mythology of Rome aud enlisted a largo number of followers. The community of alt property was one of its tenets. to which it firmly adhered, aud some of its most revered fathers aud saints openly taught what communists now assert, "that property is robbery." But the Roman law rejected this doctriue, and established m regard to per sonalty very nearly tho same prin ciple whicti prevails hero now, and caused the Christians to abandon the idea. With uouo is property now held more sacred. The triumphs and victories and conquests of Rome live but iu memory; its vast empire has pas sed away; the Pantheon is in ruins, the Forum turned into ti eattlo market, the Coliseum bio ken to pieces. These memorials aud witnesses of its greatuess aud splendor ate iu hopeless decay. But its law, its code, its institutes and its pandects havo taken deep end unshaken root over a large portion of the civilized world. Wherever tho Latiu race has gone they carried this law. All conti nental Europe acknowledges its influence. Scotland owns its sway and England had a largo mingling of it iu its laws till tho English Justinian, Edward I., put it aside for tho common mw. Yet the En glish system of chancery, as well as our own, derived its form, no less than its principles, from the civil law 5 for that, too, had its court of chancery, according to Gibbon, "to mitigate the harshest features of the law." Society rests upon tho fabric of tho law ; its every interest falls under your supervision 5 the mil lions of tho rich, the scanty pit tanco of the poor, may alike de maud your cure. Be equal to your mission to hold tho torch of truth in the temple of justico and to light tho way to correct aud right eous decrees. Itiiiuoil Out Again. About 12 o'clock last night a general alarm of fire was sounded and the engines promptly respon ded, but owing to some misunder standing a slight delay nroso in reaching the scene of the fire, which was nt Nos. 5 and 7 How ard's Row, and occupied by the Meinphiii Cider aud Vinegar Coin- puny, ot wlucli Sol. Morris and U. L. Silverman are tho proprietors. A stiff bree.o was blowing from the west, sending tho sparks in showers over the city to the east, and for a time it seemed ns if a great conlhigration was imminent, but by hard work the department succeeded in subduing the llames. The loss of tho proprietors will not exceed $15,000, for the most part insured in local agencies. The fire was principally confined to tho two upper stories of the building, and tho goods destroyed were not so valnuble as they might havo been on tho lower floors. Avalanche. Our old friend Sol.

I The House bus passed a bill atnetuliug the law regulating the removal of causes from Stato to Federal courts. The bill increases the minimum jurisdiction of the circuit courts from $500 to $2000, and takes away from the circuit courts jurisdiction of causes in favor of assignees of promissory notes and bills of exchange, aud restricts to the defendant the right to remove a cause from the State to the Federal court. It deprives circuit courts of ju risdiction of any suit of a civil nature between a corporation and citizens of any State in which such corporation, at the time the cause of action occurred, may have been carrying on any business authori zed by the law creating it, except iu cases under tho copyright or patent laws, and in like cases in which said courts tire authorized by act to take original cognizance of suits between citizens of tho mime State, aud prohibits any such suits between a corporation aud a citizen or citizens of a State iu which it may be doing business being removed Into any circuit court of the Stato except iu like cases in which such removal is au Unitized by the foregoing provi sions between citizens of tho sauio State.

Perhaps the only attempts which have been made to civilize tho monkey have been in Malabar, India. A fluo species, indigenous in that quarter, Is the ncilghcrry ungur. The natives there havo fanniiig-niaehiiie, called tho mink In other days the punka which consists of a movable frame cov ered with canvas and snspondei from tho ceiling was kept in mo tion bv n slave nulling a cord. An English officer conceived tho idc of teaching the laugur to do the work. He took 0110 of tho species and tied its hands to the cord while, by means of another con' the machine was kept in motion. The movement of the cord was tip and down, and the animal saw tho motion of thu machine. Its mas ter patted its head and fed it with candy, and the langur noon learned to think it fun to work the ma chine. When I was in Malabar se curing specimens of this species, I saw thousands of tlicin working the punka, the Indians having im mediately put the animals in cap tivity when they saw tholr imtility. The Argonaut. You may have seen something iu the papers about the coast de fences. The idea has somehow got abroad that our coasts ought to bo lined with forts and guns as as a warning to Europe against declaring war against us some morning before breakfast. Engi neers have surveyed aud reported congressional committees have sat aud reported, and for about $S0, 000,(100 we cau get things iu such shape that wheu the enemy's first iron clad heaves iu sight she can be salute! iu proper style. A lot of us were sitting in tho depot waiting room at Trenton, aud the only mau who had a news paper was reading away for dear life, when a stranger entered with two sachets and a tall gill, chuck ed the baggage under a seat, w aved the gill to another, and walked up to the mau with the newspaper and asked : " Mister, is there anything in the paper about our coast defences 1 ' " No, sir !" was the gruff reply. "That's singular. Have they given up tho idea, do you think f" " I don't kuow what you mean, sir." " You dou't ! Why, they've becu talking for the last year about building forts to protect our coast. live down near the mouth uf Tom's river, and 1 rather expect they'll build a big fort there. The way that things are now England, Franco or Germany could declare war against us and land a force at Tom's river before we bad our eyes opeu. They'd land right on my farm, aud nobody knows tho dr.nuigo they'd do. Don't see any thing about a fort at Tom's river, cht" " No." " Well, that's singular. If this government expects me to get down behind a rock with my old shotgun and keep Europe from landing at that point it's expecting u lectio too much of one man. I'd fight to the death, of course, but the chances uro that a hull navy could lick 0110 nigh sighted man. So the paper don't say anything 1" "Didn't I tell you 110 iu tho first placet" " Say I mebbe you dou't kecr a copper about coust defences t" exclaimed the two sachol man, ns a red spot appeared on either check. "Not a copper, sir." "I thoiiL'ht so from tho start! You live out iu Michigan, or Indi nun, or Illinois, and nro tucked uwuy in somo holler where the sheriiY can't find ye, let alone an invader of our sacred Bile I Oh, no, you don't keer!" 'Father!" chided the tall gill, as Kim half rose; but he turned on her with "Mary, you keep shot! lvo ull'ys thought if Europe declared wur ngin us we'd havo plenty of enemies right ut homo, and here's a case to prove it. Stranger, did you fight in the last war t " "None of your business, sir." 'There's his open hand, gentle men !" nnid the two sachel man as he turned to the crowd. When you find a man who don't keer how soon the hull of Europe jumps on this country you have found a mini who'd dig up the bones of Washington nud sell 'em to a junk man for fivo dollars !" Tho man with tho newspaper laid it down, got 011 his feet, and asked the other if he would step out doors n minute. "No, sir, I won't!" was tho prompt reply. "In the fust place I've got these two suchels to pur- tect; in tho second place, there's river ma: 1 eii. ! nver to M try and they slid out iloois to0' t!it-r. Then he beckoned t'.iiou-'.i the open window to three or font oi" n. and as we went out he su rounded us and whispered : " Gentlemen, it's my oideimi opinion that that feller U a jama sary from Europe who ha- tome over here t j coax Uncle S.un not to put tip any eoa;-t defence. I want to say riht here, and I want you to hear it and remember it, that if the enemy lauds at Tom's river it will over my dead body, aud I won't be to blame for it.''

"My eld. st boy," said a lady, "has had for years a disagreeable little way of shutting one eye and drawing up his check at the Kline time. When he was embarrassed or excited he would do it several times iu a minute. One good eld lady approached me one day and asked me, us scores had iloue be fore, if my boy had the St. Vitus dance. I said 'No, but I fear he will have it some tuno if I cannot succeed iu checking tho nervous facial habit which troubles hun.' 'If you will not think me imperti nent,' she said, 'I want to tell you About my little grandson, nud how wo cured ldin of real, fully devel oped 8t. Vitus dance.' She went on to tell me how much money she and her family kpeut upon the child J oven taking him to Europe at an expense which they could ill utTord, in the hope that some doc tor there might cure him. At last, when they hud brought him back no better, un old experienced nurso told them to stop dotting the child, and to nib his spino down ward for ten minutes or more, even to half un hour, ns hard as he could stand it, every time ho was un dressed. Kho was very emphatic hi udvmiiiL' only tho downward motion. This simple treatment cured her nlllictoil little grandson. I need not say that I began that very night to apply the method to my little boy, and he him been en tirely cured. Two mothers whoso children were also utllioted with nervous twitchings of one sort or another, have likewise tried it nt my suggestion and with tho Bamu result." Kubbiiig the spine down ward surely cannot hurt anybody, and it bus certainly produced wou derful results on the nervous chil dren on whom it has been tried.
