General lleuben Davis yesterday re ceived from Houghton, Mifflin & Co, tho publishers of his work, "Recollec tions of Mississippi aud Mississippians," a letter from which we make the fol lowing extract : 'We hare received your favor of the 15th ; we hope to put your book to press this week, in which case we will probably be able to send you copies by the end of the mouth. Will you kindly send us a def inite ordor for such number of volumes as will supply your present subscribers. So far as tho general public is concern ed we perhaps cannot furnish supply before tho first of September. General Davis has ordered five hun dred volumes as we are informed, to upply his prcseut subscribers and hopes to be able to obtain enough without delay for further demand. Tho book may be expected by the first of July. Aberdeen Examiner. We call the atteution of all of our exebaugos to the suggestion in this week's Herald with regard to laws af fecting stock. We have not tho space to discuss thorn as wo desire, but cau simply throw out hints. There is nothing so ueccisary to tho well-being of our people as good health In our stock. Mules, especially, are tlio mainstay of tho planter, and cows, hogs, sheep, etc, all of importance. Any contagious disease among thorn may produce disaster throughout whole neighborhood, au cutlre comity, all the State, unless chockod. That prevention is hotter than euro is not only a hackneyed adage, but words of wisdom, experience has abundautly proved, aud every possible effort should be used with this end in vlow. Onoof our leadiug plautcrs has suggested to the Herald a most excellent law and wo ask tho co-operation of every paper In Mississippi to have It passed, That the owners of all kind of stock, mules, horses, cattle, sheep, hogs, etc., bo required, on their death, to ellhor bury or burn them at once, and that sovero penalties bo attached to any vio lation of the law. It Is no great hard ship and might any" yoar savo the poo- plo thousands of dollars. Wo regret that our limltod space prevents us from writing at much greater length on the subject. It is certainly oue of great linportauco to tho peoplo aud we be Hove would, if in forco, bavo preveutod llio sprend of charbon this yoar, Yazoo Herald. The good peoplo who live on the river botween Vicksburg and Orecu villo are a unit in their words of com' plaint against tho present miserable mail servlco which thoy are dopoudent upon. Tho fault lays with tho tribo moukoys which the post office depart meut has appointed to work tho mail on, boats on that route. Good men were rcmoyod aud ignorant negroes appointed in their stead, and tho re mit l letter paper, etc., aro scattered in every direction. Mail is misscnt carried by to such extent that It takes a week In many instances to get let ter or paper from this city. In one in stauco a well known gonileinan at Brunswick received six daily papers of dlflereut dates in one day. Chotara complains that one of those "edecated wards of tho nation persists In seudlng to that office everything he can get his hands on for Chicot couuty, Ark.

These some of thorn gave by cnargiug that the complaiuts were chiefly found ed upon prejudice. Further inquiring did not confirm this excuse aud the elder clerk notified tho colored ap pointees that they must render no more of such excuses, as tho United SiatBS mail service was dq place for martyrs.

Perused by her parcuts she said her seducer was Mr. Henri Favrot, an Intimato friend of tho faintly and a genftemau who had been assiduous iu his attentions to lior. Mr, Favrot was called upon by relatives of Miss Dubroca and Indignantly dcuicd tho charge, aud when confronted with tho young woman, persisted In thl denial. Sho was equally persistent In charging that ho was tho canso or her condition, aud to saye tho honor or tho family ho finally consented to marry her. The young couple wcro queltly wedded at tironta,I.n.,and about three weeks ago came to this city. Mr. Fav rot said that although ho had given his name to the young lady, to shlol her from public dishonor and give par rent aged to her child, slill ho would not lire under the same roof with her. 'I will support her aud caro for her," said ho to her friends, "lint I will never 11 vo with her." Ho routed a comforta bio room for his wlfo on North Ham part street, in a respectable privato boarding-house, wbllo ho took lodging on St. Charles avcuuo, many blocks away. He often visited his wife, took her out sometimes for a walk, and when lie returned to Rampart street he parted with her with a simplo "Good night," and went to his room uptown Last evening he took her out tor promenade, accompanlod her to hor boarding-house and rcmalued there nn til 9 o'clock. This morning he vlsltod the house, aud, going up to her room found hor lying In bed, having appar ently been dead several hours. The sacrifice of the young husband brought to naught by the self-destruc tion of the wife, which makes publl hor dishonor aud brings grief and shamo upon two of the most ancient and honored families of the Stato.

On oue occasion he seized one of a number of foresters ho were sleeping together iu a hut, carried him off, and deliberately made him over to her cubs to play with, bile the protected their inuoeeut gambols from beiug disturbed. Hit co.npauious were eventual!! forced to take refuge iu a tree froui her savage attacks, lloro they wltuis-ed the fol lowing ghastly tragedy : The tigress went bsck aud stood over the prostrate form of her victim and purred lu a catlike aud self-com placent way to her cubs, who were romping about and rolling over tho appareutly liteless body. Shu then lav down a few yards off, and w ith blluk- ug eyes watched the gambols of her youug progeny. In a few moments the msn sat up and tried to beat the young brutes off. They wore too oung to hold hlm dowu, so ha made desperate attempt to shake himself free, aud started off at a run ; but bo fore be had goue twenty yards tho tigress bounded out aud brought hlm back to tier cubs. Once more tho doouiod Wretch had to dufeud himself over again from their playful attacks, He made renewed attempts to regain his freedom, but was seized by the old tigress and brought back each time before he had goue many yards. Hit groans aud cries for help were hcart- roudiug ; but the men ou the troe were parallzod with fear and qulto uunblo to move. . At last the tigress herself jolucd In tho gambols of her cubs, aud the wretched man was throwu about aud tossed over her hoad exactly at many of us havo seen our domestic cat throw rats and mice about before beginning to feed on thoin. The man's c Toils at escape grew feebler. For the last time t'jcy saw him try to get away on bis bauds aud kness toward a large fig tree, with the cubs clinging to his limbs. This ilual attempt was as futilo as the rest. The tigress brought hlm back once again, and then bold him down under hor foropaws aud deliberately begau hor living meal before their eyes. It was this formidable boast that tho J oung Coopor's Hill officer and a stu dout attacked ou foot. Thoy wore working up hor trail fifteen yards apart, when sudduuly Mr. Osmaston heard his younger companion groan, and turning round saw him boruo to tho ground by tho tigress. Mr. Os maston fortunately succeeded in shoot lug hor through tho spine, and a sec ond ball stopped hor in mid spring. Mcautlmo bis cumpaiilun rolled over the hilt, and was eventually discovered lnscuslblo a few feet away from his terrible assailant. 1 le Is terribly maul ed, aud now lies at tho Chakrata Hos pital whore hopes of his recovery aro entertained. 1 inch t iiictit1.. t t " ..

The Florldoy Dispatch, Farmer and Fruit-Grower says tho lung moss that drapes our Southern trees, in many localities, Is highly usoful for other purposes than filling mattresses, a pur pose for which it is regarded as stan dard. It makes tho best "rag" for cloauing the floors which you can im agine, a bunch of damp moss wlpos up smear ou the carpet equal to a spongo, or with a little pcarllno spriuk od g,u it will quickly clonso a grease spot. Then the chickens aro Tory fond of It and will cat every bit that is thrown on tho yard. Canaries are yory fond of ',it, aud a bunch dropped ovor their cage will glvo thorn great delight, Horses and cattlo like it, and tho writer cannot see why it should not be made to figure as valuable forage product. It is excellent for ben nests, and a bunch should always be used as boquct holders for cut flowers. Of course, for all thoso purposes It should bo used green, except in tho matter of nests where elthor kind will do. ratronaSe solicited.
