The number of Supreme Court Judges was reduced from five to three; of Superior, Court r Judges from twelve toniae-4ll tcCbe selec ted by the people.

Section 81 of the same Article is so amended as to limit the duration of the term of the Governor's ap pointees to vacancies in this Article to the next regular election for members of the General Assembly, thus avoiding the recurrence of the unseemly spectacle presented in this State if two persons duly chosen to the l position Superior Court Judge contesting for the unt expired portion of the 'termc. Sec tion 33, same Article, is so amend ed as to leave the original jurisdic tion of Justice's of the Peace in civil actions to the General Assem bly. The criminal jurisdiction of these officers is retained. The provision in the Constitution of 1776 by which upon a two thirds vote of each House ot the General Assembly J udges of the Supreme and superior Courts may be re moved trom omce tor nhvBical or mental inability, is re-enacted. lhis power is in addition to that of removal by Impeachment. lhe Article on fcuSrage and Jiiligibrnty is amended in one im portant particular.

A Bureau of Agriculture, Immi gration and Statistics is established with full power to the Legislature to protect sheep husbandry.

"But what fascinated her ' attention was his private memorandum book.; She read there a number of items which revealed to her pure mind a degree of degredatiem and duplicity which' racked her" innocent breast. This is what she read: "Molly Maguire' deserted September 9th;" ;; "Annie Everhara, jealous of 7da Elwood, drew pistol 14th, missed,' exposure prevented by compromise, no infor mation ; 'William.

She could only say she had been betrayed by the brute Paddington, ' who associa ted only with counterfeiters, blood thirsty outlaws, and ether, awful people, the worst of her sex ; and the old man patted her on the head and took down his double-barrelled gun. He reached Paddington's room before the unsuspecting mon ster was out of bed. He was as roused by the entrance of his fran tic ' father-in-law, who filled the calves of both legs with bird shot as the young man sprang to an up right position, and blew a hundred bushels of corn husks out of the mattress, and set the bed clothing on fire, when he rushed out follow ed by the mangled reporter, crying "Murder!" The two women who were scrubbing the stairs knew the bride had been murdered by the two maniacs, and threw the bucket of water, chunks of soap, and yel led for the police, who were dozing against the telegraph pole on the corner. It has been all explained ; but Paddington, who has a "sub" on, and is laid up with both legs bandaged, has given out . that he has gone on a visit to Philadelphia. Ex. -i- - Tho Qraco Darling of America. Ida Lewis, the heroine of Lime Rocks, has again added another name to the long list of lives which she has saved. A sailboat in which were John Irving, of Stonington, and Fred Setsworth, of N. J., cap sized recently in Newport harbor. They were seen by Frank Pendle- ton and Mr. Sargent, of Boston, from the shore,' and by Ids Lewis from her home at the light "house, on the Lime Rocks, at the same time. Both parties " went to the rescue in boat3, Ida saving one of the uien in an exhausted condition, and the two Boston men saving the other man. Miss Lewis, who is deservedly called the Grace Dar ling of America, first came into prominence in 1866, when, on one of the coldest and most blustering days ever known in this latitude, she saved the life of a soldier who had started for a sail on the har bor in a light skiff. One day in the autumn of 1867, while a terris ble gale was raging, two men set out to cross the harbor with sev eral sheep, and in trying to rescue one that had fallen overboard came near swamping their boat. Seeing their peril from the window of her fathers lightshouse, Miss Lewis went to their aid,' and after landing them safely, went back and rescued the sheep. But her greatest ex ploit was performed on the 29th of March, 1869, when a boat contain ing two yonng sailors and a boj, was struck by a squall in the har bor and overturned. Though ill at the time, Ida rushed out of the house, launched her lifeboat, and sprang in with neither hat on her .3JTTAR Y3F30!

The mother ot John Quincy Adams,1 the gteat American states man, said, in a letter tohim, wrtten t him when he was only twelve years old:.Z would rather see you laid in your grave than : grow up a profane and graceless boy.' Not long before the death of Mr. Adams a gentle man replied : 'I have found out what made you.' 'What do you mean ?' asked Air. Adams. The gentleman replied : 'I have been reading tho- published letters of your mother.' 'If,' this gentle man relates, 'I had spoken that dear name to some little boy who kad been for weeks away from his mother, his eyes could not have flashed more bright'y, nor his. face glowed more quickly, than did the eyes and face of that venerable old man when 1 pronounced the name of his mother. He stood up in a peculiar manner, and said: 'All that is good in me I owe to my dear mother.' ' We are, all of us, different peos pie ; our very phsique changes ac cording to our surroundings. We expand mentally, morally, physis cally, in one atmosphere, and we close and shrink and fade in anoth er. Nervous, sensitive people show this distinctly ; but even the most phlegmatic do not escape the effcts of repulsion or attraction. 'What do you know of tho char acter of this man V was asked of a witness at a police court the other day. 'What do I know of his chars acter ? I know it to be unbleachas ble, your honor,' be replied with much emphasis. The extensive marl beds which have been discovered in Brunswick county are being examined and testad, with every prospect of the whole thing proving a magnifioent success. a The News learns that in some por tions of Chatham county both the cot ton and corn crops have been dam aged to a large extent, and that the yield in may instances will not prove more than a half one. There was a violent storm on Thurs day night tLo 30th ult. The Journal of Commerce states that a telegram was received in Newborn to the effect that a man was drowned from one of the harbor boats. There is a growing Mormon cols ony, with a weekly newspaper, at Clarksburg, West Virginia. Paddy, said he made his fence six feet wide and five feet high, so that when it tumbled down it would be higher than when it stood up.

'Anything pite you dere V Ins quired one fisherman of another, while engaged in angling. Xo, notting at all.' 'Veil,' returned the ether, 'notting pite me too.' A handsome youth being qucs-1 tioned by a rather stylish lady as to his occupation, replied that he was 'an adjuster of moverablo ak phabet3.' He was simply a printer.
