brought to this city Thursday night on the I
Mobilo and New Orleans train, from Lee Sta

and conveyed to the Charity Hospital, where J
the wound was examined and pronounced
» dangerous. Sandy was found lying near the.
rai.road track, in an insensible condition.
Several parties walked up to him and found
that lit had been stabbed in the left breast
and was bleeding profusely, and knowing
that he would die if he was left there accord
ingly had him placed on the cars and con-1
veyed to this city. I
It was ascertained from parties that reside
, , I
at Lee Station, that Sandy became involved
in a difficu lty frith another colored man
named John Green, about 7 o'clock Thursday
night, in w bich he was stabbed in the left
breast by 'Green, who made his escape imme

The fact was brought to the notice of the
Newark, N. J., health authorities yesterday
that Frank Fcrubb, living at 24 Berlin street,
is in the habit of subsisting, with his"family,
on dog-meat. Scrobb takes stray dogs from
the street, skins them, and prepares them as p
though they were sheep. The family are no
compelled by want to subsist on dogs, but it
is the result of a disgusting appétit Th J
neighbors are very desirous of having the
lamiiy removed from the neighborhood, but | A
the authorities find no law against eating dog- „
moat. The interference of the Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has been I
suggested.

paid by a writer in Lippincolt's Magazine to
have been an example ot preoocity almost
without a parallel. "At three years old he
read English so well that iie was taught Latin,
and at four he read Greek with an ease and
fluency that astonished all who heard him."
A volume containing specimens of his works,
produced before he was elevan years of age,
was collected and published by his father.

necessity ot submitting to the extraction of a
cancer on his nose. This painful operation
hs just been successfully performed in New
Orleans. In about a week he hopes to be able
to take up the line of his appointments, and
to be in Jackson on the 8th and 9th oi April.

$150 worth of bibles and hymn-books, and
$100 worth of clothing. The latter item, it is
thought, has been largely overestimated, bat
the bibles are of priceless value.
