upon an application for a writ of error. He signed the bill of excep- • tions as beiug correct, but refused to suspend sentence and directed tbe ! jailor to “take Mr. Gibson to jail i and treat him like anv other common criminal.” 1 immediately had a copy of the record made, ami a member of the j bar started that night to the home j of Judge Snyder, of the Supreme Court of this State, who, the next morning, promptly granted the writ of error and ordered my release with- | out requiring the usual bond. Mr. McGinnis, knowing that this application had been made to Judge i Snyder.and being remonstrated with by his entire bar, on the next morn- j ing, before Judge Snyder's telegram ordering my release was received, 1 without any knowledge or request, himself ordered my release. Mr. McGinnis is an announced candidate for re-election, and I have, as lias the entire bars in his circuit, with one exception, opposed him on his candidacy, and stated on one oc casion, two months ago, in a public speech in the city of Huntington, that “he was too ignorant for the position and as dishonest as he was ignorant.” This was one of his spe cifications of contempt. I desire to add that my friends may rely upon it that when this case comes on to be heard, as heard it will be, I will show Ira J. Mc Ginnis to be a dishonest and cow ardly man, and a brutal and insolent Judge. Eustace Gibson. Ad Tipi tarit, owned hikI conducted bv the Aest Virginia Publishing Company, CHARLESTOWN. W. VA.

His father was Win Price Craighill. who married Miss Little ol a well known and tal ented family of Ya. Win. Little, of Fredericksburg, and Dr. Alexander Little, of Richmond, were cousins of the deceased. Before the war Mr. Win. Nathan iel Craighill was cashier of the Bank of the Valley of this town, and there never was a more faithful or effi cient officer. It is said that for fif teen years consecutively he never lost a day nor houi from his post of duty in the bank, although during a part of the time, he lived in the country, three and a half miles away from the institution. He was, al most from the period of his matur ity,—a devout and zealous member of the Episcopal church, and exem plified, in his daily work in a con spicuous manner, all of the virtues of a truly pious aud Christian gen tleman. Lieu. Col. William Price Craighill, of the U. S. Army, whose distin guished services as an engineer have given him a national reputa tion. is oue of his surviving chil dren. as are also Robert Craighill Esq., of Lynchburg; Rev. Jas. B. Craighill, of Maryland;and Dr. Ed ward Craighill,of Virginia. Dr. C. T. Y. S. Butler, an eminent phyician of this county, residing at Shep herdstown. is his son-in-law. A Great Increase. The total shipments cf bitnmin coal over the Norfolk and Western Railroad for the year up to August 20 were 714,G47 ton, against 521,509 tons at the same time last years,an increase of 193,138 tons. This is at the rate of over 1,200,000 tons a vear. When it is remembered that the Pocahontas coal mines were only a few years ago, it will be seen how rapidly Southwestern Virginia is im portant factor in the bituminous coal output. From the spirit Mr. Thomas Yanvactor has traded his 450 acres of mountain land, on the east side of the Shenandoar river, in this county, to Mr. R. K. John ston, of Baltimore, for city property.

Mr. Editor.—We hardly deem it necessary to offer an excuse for again referring to the great enterprise of I Savery <fc Co., for the subject of the Harper’s Ferry of to-day, with this left out, would be—to quote a trite 1 phrase—Hamlet without the Prince | of Denmark. Besides, as the old i saying is, “a good feast requires no apology,” and as the prosperity of ! our village affects that of all Jeffer sou county as well as the neighbor ing portions of Virginia and Mary I land, we know of no topic more in I teresting to your readers. You re ; member, however, that lately you have curtailed our wind and limited j us to narrow bounds, and therefore, | without entering into details, we will sum up by saying that the work goes bravely on and is fast ap proaching the desired consumma tion. The melancholy days are coming on, and indeed one of them has ar rived—Black Monday—the day of reopening the schools—and, as we write, troops of dejected urchins pass along with a slow, slouching gait very different from the bound ing elastic step of the same on clos ing day three months ago. Verily they boast not themselves while they gird on their harness as they will when they put it off nine months hence. The city people are taking wing, and the surrounding hills where, a few days ago, they crowded thick as leaves in Vallumbrosa or children ’round an Irishman’s shan ty, are abandoned save by a few whom freedom from business en gagements and depth of purse ena ; ble to prolong the luxury of our pure air aud unrivaled scenery. They, too, will soon be gone and, j like “sweet Auburn, loveliest village of the plain,” Harper's Ferry will be deserted, with this marked differ ence, that the former had an in spired idiot—as Dr. Johnson called poor Goldsmith—to sing its praises, while the latter—the worthier of the two—depends at present for fame on a very prosaic country-schoolmas ter. No one will miss the presence of the strangers more sensibly than your correspondent, for to the bustle and stir of the visiting season we owe much of the pabulum on which our fancy has fed while inditing the series of absurdities with which we have tired the patience of your read ers this summer. There is then some reason to fear that for dearth of light material we might endeavor to be serious and rashly launch into some subject of practical interest and incur the anger of some if not all the factions that are spoiling for the great light of next year. It is a hard choice, but though it is not creditable to our valor, we prefer the contempt due to our inanities to the awful wrath that a little good sense would be sure to evoke. “Be lieve me that ho has lived well who has hidden himself well,” said a great Roman poet nineteen centu ries ago, and as we believe the same is as true to-day as it was then, we will stick to our nonsense as long as we can find a sufficient supply of it, and safe in oifr obscurity we will leave the important things of cur rent history to‘‘simpleton sages aud reasoning fools” who love the strife and turmoil of controversy. Great as has been the number of visitors accommodated here this summer, it is believed that quite as many have been disappointed in ob taining entertainment, and it is said that fort}’ applicants were refused on one day for want of room by one boarding-house proprietor. This is exciting a bnikliug boom, ana we hear of great preparations for the erection of cottages on the Heights of Bolivar, Loudoun and Maryland. A waggish Irishman of Washington wrote to a boarding master for ac commodation for a mile of family and. on being informed iu a spirit of fun that he could be accommoda ted, presented himself one day at the hotel with a tlock of eight. His name is Patrick Furlong, and he claims that eight furlongs will make a mile any day. By the way he is a hue, genial fellow, and lie has made so many friends here that we will manage to lodge and feed him self and family if they should grow to a league, which he says himself is within the probabilities. The belief is prevalent that Har pers Ferry will become one of the great favorite summer resorts, and a day or two ago we heard of a con templated agency for the sale of building-sites at this point. It is said, indeed, that a syndicate, with 4his object in view’, has already rented an office of Mr. Kobert Cava lier. No one can tell what a day will produce as Mrs. Day said when she presented her lord and master with triplets, and on the same occa sion we heard the astounding news that an enterprising gentleman of a neighboring State was about to es tablisli-a bank at the place. This latter undertaking will be a great boon to our schoolmasters and edi tors, whose surplus cash has been increasing of late to an inconve nient degree, owing to the general business depression and the conse quent difficulty of tlnding profitable investments. We have no doubt that those classes will tlock to our bank to make deposits or, perhaps, to purchase hank stock. We are glad to learn that Mr. S. J. Lang, the artistic tailor of your town, intends to pay our place reg ularly recurring and frequeht visits to give our people fits—we mean good Jits in clothing. We under stand that Mr. Lang came to our county with the highest recommcn dations from the most fashionable 1 houses in his line of London and New York, and from our personal acquaintance with him, we do not hesitate to declare our conviction that he is a genial and thoroughly honorable gentleman, and the very man to supply a long felt need— that of a man capable or measuring accurately the human structure and cutting to suit the measurement. We learn that in a lew months he has built up a very extensive busi ness in Charlestown. Ilis headquar ters here will be at Green's hotel. What a pity you have restricted us to certain narrow limits in your columns. Our Pegasus is a spirited, but obstinate beast, that brooks neither bit nor bridle—one that will carry us safely in the most daring flights of fancy when left to its own sweet will, but will be just as apt to ! cant us into a ditch if restricted in liberty. On 3 011, then, Mr. Editor, will rest the awful rosponsibilit3' of our probable failures, and glad enough will we be to have somebod3' between us and the certain displea | sure of your disappointed readers. • Y.

On next monday night Sept. 12., Bell’s Koyal Marionettes will begin a 3-nights engagement at Washing ton Hall. The Balo. Sun says: A crowded house greeted Bell’s Koyal Marionettes while in this city i at Fords opera house, and a more | delighted audience could not be found. The entertainment opened with prof. Ellis’s slight of hand per formance, in which he did some wonderful tricks. Following this was the minstrel scene, which was very amusing. So natural were fig ures and gestures that many persons realy took them to be real, while the dancing,dislocating skeleton is some thing wonderful. The new features of the entertain ment since their last visit here were Miss Adels Gilbert assisted by Sig. Giovanni on their musical glasses, producing the sweetest sounds on a i set of ordinary goblets while the per formance of Sig. Giovanni’s troupe of birds delighted all. Mine Strous’s Fata Morgana at the close showed some very fine views. At the close 100 elegant presents were distribirt 1 ed. Admission 35 and 50 cents. lie served seat tickets at Geo.

Mississippi Corn for Illkois ' Hogs.—A dispatch from Meridian, i Miss., states farmers from the drought-stricken regions of Illinois are proposing to transport their hogs to Mississippi, wherecornean be had to feed them.

The Kanawha and Ohio already have a number of cars on hand to be transferred and more are coming. It is estimated I by the officers of the two roads that two hundred cars per day will be exchanged. -+>—♦—* And then the Miner Votes for “Protec tion.” The coal barons have issued an other edict fixing the output of coal.
