When the train reached Bramwell, the trouble broke out afresh, and one of the hi HXlest lights ever seen in West Virginia, to< k place. Mr. Baldwin's detectives were called to the rescue by Conductor Burger, and they re? sponded nobly. They attempted to arrest the two ringleaders of the rioters, and the mob charged them. Then a hand to hand encounter be? tween and negroes detectives com? menced. Baldwin and his men used their stout clubs freely and knocked down nine or ten of the mob. Soon lire? arm.-? began to be used. Detective Baldwin was en! through the coat and vest. He thereupon drew his re? volver and shot Ins assailant twice, both balls taking effect in the right arm. Detective Campbell was hit in the side by a pistol hall, Jbut not se? riously wounded. Robertson, another officer, had his hand broken. A number of citizens of Bramwell came to the rescue, and thus rein? forced the squad of officers, and suc? ceeded in (illing the jail with the most dangerous of negroes. The mob was then dispersed.

Woods, who lives in Ani herst county, Va.., has in his poultry yard a hen that is truly a freak of na? ture. The hen is now about live years old. She grew up to be perfectly black.

She remained white nearly two years when black feathers again began to appear. They have increased in number, and there is now no doubt that she will again be perfectly black.
