The country generally became quiet in demeanor and expression over the invitation that President Hayes ex tended to Wade Hampdon to come to Washington to help strengthen the Southern question. Everybody, or nearly everybody, passed the ques tion, and as far as the people were concerned the question really went a begging to get some one to say yea or nay on it Last Wednesday, how ever, the stillness was disturbed by a vigorous shout from Massachusetts, where the question was introduced into an ecclesiastical body of Metho dist ministers. As the saying goes, they took the " bull by the horns." The case is briefly stated in a de spatch from Boston, under date of April 4th, as follows : The New England conference of the Methodist Episcopal church open ed tiiis morning at Lynn. Resolu tions on the Southern question were presented by Rev. W. F. Mallaton, D. D., of Boston, and upon being read were received with great ap plause, and by a vote of the confer ence were referred to a special com mittee of five, to be appointed by the Chair. The preamble to the resolu tion reviews the blighting effects of slavery and the two final resolutions are in substance as follows : Resolved, That we are alarmed and filled with apprehensions for the future when ire contemplate tbe practical sale of one of the great political parties of the republic by two politicians of that party who bave held and now bold very intimate relation j to tbe Presi dent ; thus sacrificing principal and partj and righteousness for the sake of temporary sncces. Resolved, That we protest most ear nestly against tbe action of the new administration in making terms with the chief of the Ku Klux aud instigator of the Hamburg massacre, M. C. Butler, and still more earnestly do we protest against the official recognition by the administration of tbat arch enemy of the republic, who long since ought to bave been bung fur treason, Wade Hampton, of Soutb Carolina, and who now by threats and mtimatation under tbe very roof of tbe White House, as well as on railroad platforms and in other pnblio places, defies tbe Govern ment and bullies tbe President into compliance witb big traitorous and wicked usurpations. A. Oakey Hall-The Same Old Story The Woman with Him. The name of the gentleman who heads this article has been tha pro lific subject of articles in New York city papers, all caused by his sudden leaving of New York ; by his going away without telling his family, or other friends. Multitudinous were the conjectures as to what bad be come of him. Many believed that he had been murdered. Some believed that he went to the Old World, and consequently all ships that landed in England and Europe, were asked for him. By despatch it is announced that he is in London, and has a woman with him ; and now the mys tery is solved. It is the u same old story." Mr. Hall is a man of great intellectual attainments. The woman with him is described by despatch as follows : u She is about thirty-eight years of age, five feet five inches in height, has a good figure and brown hair, clear complexion, large eyes and Large mouth. She has a wart about two inches below her left ear." Mr. Hall had ft large law practice in New York city. Jdajrlas in Vienna.

Do ton Understand It? In the last issue of the London Court Citcular is narrated a queer social tragedy Among the guests who were assembled at a dinner party was a lady of exquisite form, whose delicate plumpness wAs the theme of unusual admiration. To her was pre sented a small bunch of flowers by an admirer whose duty it was to escort her to dinner.- She gracefully ac cepted the gift, and in a thoughless moment fastened it to her bosom with a pin searching' and far-reaching. By the time she reached the dinner table she wm a mere wreck. The pin had perforated her bosom, not wisely, but too well, and that bosom was merely a part of the outer India-rubber woman' whieh concealed the real residue from the gaze' of de ceived society. Of course there was nothing left for her to do but to faint, and she promptly did so. Her friends Kfatltered her exuberant charms into a narrow but compact bundle, and re moved her to her carriage. And this, we are left io infer, is the way in which the beauty and fashion of Eng land is constructed. To understand Vfhy'thB body of the lady withered when the llower-pin was fastened through her clothing is to realize that her body was srirround ed with an India-rubber covering, the shape of her person, which was filled with air. The pin made a hole in the "rubber" covering, and thereby came the collapse. Doubtless her cheeks, too, were pouched. Attacked la a Railroad Car. Six men attempted to abduct Mrs. Geo. Wat6on, a wealthy lady of Mas sillon, Ohio, on the 6th inst, from a Rock Island train, between Rock Island and Iowa City. Under pre tence that f he was a lunatic, they kept her gagged and held her down at each station. She, however, man aged to escape from them at Wilton, after a desperate struggle, during which she sprained her ankle. The object of the men was proaably money, as she ws richly dressed. Blew Out tbe Gas. Mr. John Brice, that old citizen of Bedford, who went to Philadelphia and blew out the gaslight when re tiring, which came near resulting in his smothering to death, was so badly effected with the quantity he inhaled as to cause his demise, at his home in Bedford, March 30. ne was seventy two years of age. A Foot Race. Judge John Hanna, of Ursina, who will be eighty-two years old on the 2Gth of the present month, and an other young fellow aged sixty-five, from the same neighborhood, ran a foot-race from Bevins' to the Somer set House on Monday last The Judge came in a length ahead. A Hopeless Case. A Gentleman on Sbeloon street thought of having a telephone put in bis house, so as to enable hiin to bold sweet convers witb bis business partner, but his aged mother protested against it earnestly. "Robert," she sai J, 'if you bring one of those dreadful things io here I'll never close my eyes for fear it may break out and sweep us all into eternity, and ns not a bit tbe wiser." He tried to persnade her tbat it was an innocnos instrument, but she said, "No, bo; look at tbe thousands and millions nf poor Hindoos it killed last fall." Wby," said be, "that wasn't a telephone tbat was a typhoon ;" but tbe old lady lowered bet glasses, and looking at bim over the rims thernf, said be couldn't fool hpr tbat she Kiphtu't know much, perhaps, but she did koaw that tbat the typhoon was the President of Japan. The gentleman has given it np as a hopeless case. Chicago Tribune. Just tbe Man The Chicago Tribute relates tbe fol lowing: 'When Mr. Beecher called to retain Mr. Kvirta as bi eouosel, the latter without hesitation replied : '1 cannot be of any use to you, Mr. Beech er; I bare never taken part in a case of this character, and 1 could not do it unless I were perfectly certain of your innocence.' At there words lr. Beech er rose, and in bis impulsive way brought his band down on tha lawyer, shoulders as if it were Plymouth desk. You are just the man 1 want,' said he. Tbe next morning began a memorable meeting between the emotional, elec trical preacher and tbe cool balanced) logical lawyer. At the end of two bonrs Mr. Evarts said, 1 am satisfied of jour innocence, Mr. Beecher; I will take tbe case.' " ClothingTorn OCT. On 1 hursday evening last Mr. D. R. Beynon, an employee of tbe rolling mill, was undressed from bead to foot in about two Seconds. We believe Mr. Beynon was not working in tbe evening, but bad on a long tailed eoat and was walking through the mill, when as be passed the large fly wheel, which was revolving at a feartul velocity, the wheel caught htm, bat Mr. B. witb great presence of mind canght some projection, and bad muscle enough to bold on until every sticb of clothing was torn from bis body.

Miller, was the victim, liviug iu Heid elberg township, Lebanon county, about one and one half miles northeast from Schsofferstuwn, on the road leading to Xewiuanstown. It appears tbat tbe deceased wanted to take some money consisting of about $60C to a friend at early morning, when some bold and cowardly assassin was laving in ambush about two hundred yards away from bis borne and there committed a most brutal murder. Tbe forehead was entirely tnasbed in with some lieary blnot instrument ; there was a stab wound above and below tbe left eye ; a stab wound about 21 inches deep on the left side ol the neck, sever ing the windpipe. On the back of tbe bead be must have receiveb several op waid blows, chafing the skin and hair; otherwise there were no other marks upon tbe body. It appears tbat after tbe assassin bad bis victim down upon tbe ground the blows upon tbe forehead were given, and according to the victim's position as found, it seem tbat mercy was beg ged while the slayer plunged tbe dead ly knife into the throat and lace of tbe victim. Tbe murderer hastily tied tbe horse to the fence, biding the hickory club with which the deed was commit ted, under tbe fence, and then return ing to bis vietiui, r.fled bis vest pocket of a pocket-book contained $000 in money. It appears from all the transactions made the perpetrator of the deed was acquainted with tbe ground, as welt as Mr. Miller s business relations. Tbe murdered man was a highly re spected and esteemed citixen, aged about 72 years. David Kisser, a tenant on the farm of the murdered man, Joseph T. Mil ler, was arrested charged witb being the murderer. Tbe evidence against tbe accused is strong, bloody axe hav ing been found at his bouse. A late despatch says tbat Mrs. Mil ler has also been arrested as a party to the murder. Some three thousand people attended tbe funeral of Mr. Miller. A Case of Bigamy. We condense from an account, as published in the Aitoona .Mirror, tbe particulars of a bigamous transaction, in which a prominent cbn,ch member of Petersburg, tiunttngdon 'Jouuty, smith Elliot bv name, baa been playing a rather deep game, and with consider able success up until recently. He Lad been a successful busiuess roan for years, and accumulated considerable property, but some time ago be became embarrassed in his Gnaneial affairs, and failed. Tueu be entered a Philadel phia store as salesman allowing his wife, grown son, and tw grown daughters, with also a younger son, to remain at Petersburg. His salary was a good ore, and be sent them means occasion ally! besides paying a viHit to bis borne at distant intervals. Finally the re mittances ceased to come to bis wife, and tbe eldest son was compelled to to seek employment at kenova, to which place the mother and the other children also removed some two or three months ago. Shortly after they were domiciled in their new borne Mr. Elliot visited them, remained half a day, and then said be must go to Philadelphia, but as It was subsequently ascertained, he took bis departure for tbe West. It now appears that two years ago be passed himself off in Philadelphia as a single man, and succeeded in fascina ting a widow lady, whoa he married. The name of this second venture is with held, but tbe Mirror man saw the cer tificate of tbe marriage, and also an ad ditional certificate in tbe shape of two children tbat had been born to them. In bis hasty flight west he abandoned both women, and it was owing to bis non appearance in tbe city tbat the in quiries set on foot revealed the above state of facts. Wife No. 2 went on to Kenova a few days ago, and took tea with wife No. 1, but did not reveal the duplicity of Elliot. Sbe bad intended doing so, but pity for ber companion in misfortune induced her to refrain. The story soon leaked out however, and is now the excitement of tbs boor among those who know tbe parties.

Sad to relate the depredations of these rabid auimals bave not been confined to these alone, but three ladies bave also been bitten, and are suffering great anguish of both body and mind. It appear tbat about two weeks ago a rabid dog passed through the town ship, and but little attention was paid to it until Friday last, when a valuable Alderney bull belonging to Mr. Jere miah Shafer, of Amityville, was at tacked with hydrophobia. It was at once placed in a lot where its move ments were watched witb great interest by persons from far and near. It con tinued to bave the most dreadful spasms ntil Sunday, when it died. Oh Monday following another eow, an Alderney, was attacked witb rabies, and was put in a wagon bouse. Her actions were distressing to witness. She would at times stand upon her hind legs aud dash herself against the sides of tbe building until the boards were covered with blood and mud. She con tinued on in this manner on il Thurs day night, when she was killed. Sev ers other cows belonging to Mr. Shaler, and it is feared some of his horses, have also been bitten by bis two dogs, whicb have be;n seized with this dreadful malady. A gentleman who passed through Amityville on Thursday morning, in forms us tLat on Friday last oue of these dos bit in the band of one of Mr. Sbafer's daughters.
