Frank Fisher Taken From The Gallon Jail and Hanged. GALION. Ohio, April 20.1822. Thlshiibon the most exciting day In the hMory or the city an l county. Frank Fisher, theneirrowho so henilily outnmed th" llttlo Germnn girl, Tliirbiira Utt lr. nited only llilp teen ycHx, In the woods, where hn had l?on cliiipplng wood Inst Frldsy noon, and who es caped, was captured alsiut five o'clock this morning nt Frederick-town, Knox County, by Officer T. J. Wurts and W. H. W. NI hol, of this city. The arrest was made just n the ne gro was about to h ave Freilerlcktown on foot. He was first accosted by Olllccr Worts, who asked him whether his name was Frank Fisher. " No, snh, that Is not my mime, sah," he replied, but OHlror Nichols knew blm, and arter a few more ipiplons, among which was asked why he had "left (billon, he replied that he hud ot tired of chopping wood and thought, he would skip. The oittcers, of course, arrested hlln, and at once stinted with hlin in a earring ', noonmpie nled. by two Fredcrlcktown oflicers, for this crt y, arriving here at 11::) this morning. The prisoner was nt once tuken to the Juil Inthe City Hall and oonllncd in one of the heavy Iron cages, and tho Mayor and city otliceil! were laying plana to take him to the county jail al Ilucyrus, or some other Jail In some nelglilsir big county, fearing Hint the loud threats of lynching would Ik-carried out If Fisher would remain in the City llall.eell. Their fours were well founded, for tho news of Fisher's capture sprnad through the city and the neighboring towns like wild-tire, and at three o'clock this alternoon a largo crowd of determined men b'ldly, dellantly arid unmarked, wilh ham mers, crowbars mid eth'T Inipli nicuts. and a hiue and siL-nillciiiit loop-rope, pn'r.entcd tnem selves br' l ore tile cut nince of til" I 'ity Hull prison end demanded that Flunk F.sUer, the negro rnpi-t, be mrrendered Into their hnnds. Tho otlicers of course refused. Then ensued n terrible scene of strile. Tin; him-li ill of oflicers were powerless, and the speeches of Mayor I'nderwood, (i. M. Zi ipler and others, who begged the excited crowd to let the law take Its course and deal with the prisoner whose blood they sought, were un:i tilling aifu unbended. Wllh their Implements of destruc tion they forced open the doors as though they were paper, broke open the iron cage that con tained the guilty, trembling wretch, and grasp ing blm with a tlo.en hands, as In a vise, they pulled him out into the street with a defiant shout. Previous to this, however, a delega tion accompanied by a physician, whom they had-pressed lulo service, drove furiously down to the residence of the victim of the negro's lust to ascertain whether she was In a proper mental and physical condition to see the negro for Identification. The physician states to your correspondent that ho asktsi her whether she knew the negro who had caused her misery. Phc replied yes, that she bad often seen him while ho waa chopping wood near their home, and described his appearance. Be ing asked whether she could Identify him, she replied she could. The delegation being sat isfied reported at the City Hall, and then the scene that has been described was enacted. With hoots, yells and cheers, the crowd, pro ceded by some men and bovs, bearing the fatal nijie, marchedwjtb thefrightcned negro totho Kettlg residence, at the foot of Piiuth Market Ktreet, Just south of the city limits, and took, tho black beast Into the presence of llarbant Kettlg, the little girl whom he bail so horribly outraged. As booh aa her eyes fell upon the cowardly and cowering wretch before her, she reclaimed: "That is the man who did it," and Boon fainted with the terrible recollections. The crowd threw the rope over the negro'a head and dragged him to a tree in the rear of the lot, but some one suggested tne woods the scene of his terrible crime hard by as the fit place to expiate his crlmo, and to the woods whore he hud been but n few pays ago chop ping wood Frank Fisher was drugged und told that his tlmo to die had come. He protested his Innocence to the last, but the blood stains upon his clothing and the girl's evidence, coupled with numerous lies to the olliccrs, was enough to condemn bun in the minds of the infuriated und desperate crowd: nnd hang him they would, tor n trial by law would only send him to the penitentiary and cheat the gallows of as bluek-heTir'.edn demon ascA-cr trod I lie earth. Hut they let him pray for a short time. He said In his pr.iyer, "O Lord, take care of me. 1 know that I am going to die, but I havo many friends." The balance of bis appeal was drowned by the cries of the crowd to string him up. His hands were tied behind bis buck, his feet pinioned, a hnndkerchiel piacod over his face, a steady pu t was given ou the rope, the end made fast to a stump, and at 4:10 Ibo soul of Frutik Fisher, the negro rapist, was sentto answer for his crime before a hither court than that of Crawford County; andat this writing ( p. in.) his body Ftill dangles in mid-air. It is estimated that at least two thou sand people, men, women and children, among whom was your correspondent, witnessed the execution by Judge Lynch. A large number of people from llucvrus, ML tiileatl, Crestline und other neighlairlng towns wit nessed the ghastly spectacle. We should have stated that while the negro was being taken by the crowd a tire alarm sounded, and the lynch ers thought It a ruse to get them to dispers"; but the alarm was genuine, a frame house on South Market street, on the line ot march to the woods, having caught tire. The lynching ot Frank Fisher, In broad daylight, upon Sunday, by unmasked men, was one of the boldest affairs that has ever transpired In this county. Whilo tho affair is to be regretted the crime was such that he has not a particle of sympathy from any one who has heard the particulars of the crime for which he has so dearly paid with bis life. The Coroner of the county has been notllicd and may yet to-night hold an ilviuest and render a verdict There is some talk of having the leading lynchers indicted by the grand Jury, but It would not bo Bute to attempt that at present. The Standard Insurance Company. MANSFIELD, O, April 20,1822. Yesterday the suit of tbe Standard Mutual Idle Insurance Company, of Mansfield, Ohio, to revoke Its charter, wus heard in the Supreme Court, and some .thirty witness es examined. Tho evidence in this case was even moro damaging than in tho Investigation of the Ml idlebur-g Company of I.oguu County, whb'h was heard the lattt r part of last week. From the testimony given jesterdtty it was shown that the Standard had been doing business less than twen ty months and during thut time it bad collected over f'.li.liio and u-ted over four-sevenths of it to pay ullegcd expenses of olnocrs, or In other words for every three dol lars that it paid membei-H it charged four.

CnAitt.Ksros, S. C, April . Full particulars ore received here to-Iny of the territ'le cxpl'tslon of the steamer Marion yesferdny, on the Wnteree Klvcr, with an ex cursion party of Indies and gentlemen on board nt the time. The Marion was employed by tho (toverninciit.

During the past week a mimiterof younv ladles anil gentlemen living In the upper end of Itlehlimd Cmoty decided to organise an ex cursion perty for a trip down tho river, and sent a committee to the C iptafn of the Marion ith the request, that he would grant them the use of the steamer, with which request hu courteously compiled. The party took tho steamer yesterday morning at nine o'clock. there lielng twenty-three ladies and twelvo gentlemen, and they started ofT with glad ttn tlcipallons of the pleasure of tho dav. Itc. sides the excursion party, tho crew numbered ten persons, making the steamer's load of liv ing freight fortv-tlve. At eleven o'eliek, when the st amer was In midstream, the boiler exploded with n fearful noise. At the time the entire excursion party was on the deck, ami all of them in the imme diate vicinity of the engine-room. The scene, when the smoke of the explosion died away, was fearful, and beggared description. For one mom"!it the tU'n-;e cloud of csci'ped si am hung over the delals, and men and women were senseless and bleeding upon the torn deck. Others hail b on thrown In to the h"ld, ami others still were hurled under broken planks. The st-nnier was at Hist almost thrown over on her side, tint she righted herself. Such of the male passen gers and crowns had not bis-n disabled went manfully to work to snve the wounded and helpless women. The steamer was he:nicd for shore, and. before sh( uld sink, w.-s run into shallow wat -r. 1 he force of the explosion blew off the entire upper d-ok. Many of the passengers were thrown bit i the water, but many more fell back on the deck, some lieing seriously hurt and others only slightly bruised. The CitHiiin and crew did brave work In savlnif the lives of the unfortunates, and tint for their prompt action the victims of tho disaster would have boon trebled. The saddest feature of the explosion was tho absolute extermination of a whole fumlly. tho Misses Henry, four sisters, who were among the most lovtsl and popular young ladies in Kichlaud Count)'. They had been standing on the deck directly over the boiler, and the ex plosion spent It; full force upon them. The youngest. Miss Alice, was killed instantly. Miss Minnie, the oldest, was thrown n great distance iuto the air, and felt inhi the water. She was one of the first picked up, and died In fifteen-minutes. The third. Miss June, was picked up in tho end of the hold, nearly every bone In her body broken.' She lived long enough to murmur " Thank " to the young gentleman who lifted her mangled body. The fourth, tt lovely bfunetto of eighteen, was so scalded as to be almost unrecognizable. Mr. Arnold Stiles, a mlildle-aged gentleman, one of the organizers of the excursion, was kilted, his arms being torn f mm the body. John Jacobs and Hiram Tiller, two colored- boat hands standing in the rear part of the steamer, were killed. It Is supposed, by falling timbers. Colonel James Iluhelles and Mr. Lawrenco Adumson, who were stand :ng n"ar the Misses Henry, were also killed. Threo other young ladies were also lost.

P -fir friend, do you ever sin ml in the loorway of memory, when tin! golden sun lights up the road over which you have traveled through the dust and heat of former years, nnd while you look out over tlie field of your great struggles, and victories, and defeats, do you ever wish yourself buck again beyond the hour when first .ambition filled your heart and made your presentseem distasteful, and poor and mean in your eyes? Ho yon ever ligure your gains and losses, and look wilh weariness and unrest upon your achievements? Does it not sometimes oceurtoyou that vouhnve dearly bought your position and wealth. Ah, who can buy the joyous hope and bounding health of sore-toed boyhood?

How empty and how vain are the glor ies that crown the hero of a thousand battles. How worthless are the failed laurels that crown the bilious, pimply brow of greatness. We combat with all humanity for a proud position, anil just as we gi t our name in print we find that our digestion has gone back on us anil the overtaxed gasliic department must be sent to the sliop for repairs.

It, Is a proud day to :he, ambitious statesman, when in tho flush of victory he stands before the applauding host, of those who have carried him upward to this glorious moment, when he feels his own strength and calmly surveys the gory field, over which he has fought, liut when every man who voted for him ha.s asked and petitioned him for the nine dollar postotl'K-e at his old home and threatens to bolt all nominations and disrupt the party if he cannot have it, there steals over the senses of the great statesman the fruitless wish that he ' may be taken back to tlie old homo where he snared gophers with an old fish-line or pasted blue mud all over his freckled skin and ran along the beach in the warm July air and scared the frisky horses of the young lovers who drove along the pebbly shore. Greatness is to be sought for nnd de sired because it stirs the stagnant ambi tion of man and helps him to kill time, but fresh laurels and bronze medals cannot minister to a pair of torpid kid neys. The praise of men and the smiles of beaut i, id women cannot bring joy to tlie heart of a hollow-eyed statesman who cannot tligcf anything butoat-mcal mush anil distilled Graham juice. The world is full of great men, men who, when they write their names on a hotel register, are sure that they will bo interviewed by newspaper men and their words printed before breakfast; men who wear.

The Resemblances Between Men and Monkeys. If the skeletons of an orang-outang and a chimpanzee be compared with that of a man, there will be found to be the most wonderful resemblance, to gether with a very marked diversity. Hone for bone, througliout tlie whole strut-title, will be foundto agree in gen eral form, position and function, the only absolute dillerenees being that the orang has nine wrist bones, whcivas Irian Hlitl the cliimpan.ee have but eight; antl the chiiiipani e has thirteen pairs ot ribs, whereas the orang, like man, has but twelve. With these, two exceptions, the differences are those of shape, pro portion and direction only, though the resulting differences in the external form and motions are very considerable. The greatest of the-e ate that the feet of tlie anthropoid or man-like apes, as we as those of all monkeys, are formed like hands, with large opposable thumbs lilted to grasp tlie branches of trees, but unsuitable for erect walking, while the hands have weak, small thumbs hut very long anil powerful fingers, forming a nook, rattier than a bana, adapted foi climbing up trees ami suspending the whole weight from horizontal branches. The almost complete identity of the skeleton, however, ami the close simp laiity of the muscles anil of all the in ternal organs, have produced that strik ing and ludicrous resemblance to man which everyone recogni.i-s iu these higher apes ami, in a less degree, in the w hole monkey tribe; the face and fea tures, tlie 'motions, ' attitudes ami gestures being often a at range caricature of humanity.

Acta llavcn UegUter. Mesquite Gum. It has been found (says the Northwest ern Lumberman) that the iiiesipiite tree of Texas is identical with, or at least vastly similar to the acyacia tree of the East, from which is obtained the gum arabic of commerce, and an indusiry in the direction of collecting antl utilizing this gum is being developed. It is held to be equal or suM'rior to the imported gum, and quite largo quantities were gathered last year and sold reatlily at lifteen cents ir pound. A mosipiita grove is a novel and interesting sight, the encasingsof the tree branches being likened to transparent crystal armor, reflecting the sun's rays, and glittering and glowijig like unto gome gulden har vest. The gum is capable . of being bandied with great expedition antl fa cility, the trees always growing p, groves and to medium height. Cattle are also fond of the gum, and uat it from the trees where it is in reach. It is believed that were the mesquite cared for like the ma ple, and proper operations followed, the Iiroject of gum-raising would be a feai tie and profitable one.
