An old Murder Being Investigated.
Most of onr readers probably will recall
the murder three or fonr years since of an
old gentleman named Jones, who lived
alons in the mountains some miles above
this place. He was found dead with evi
dences ofjviolence upon his person, and an
attempt was msde to cover np the crime by
burning his body with the bonse, which
attempt failed. He was believed to have
bad a good deal of money in the house,
which with valuable papers was stolen.
Suspicion, we learn rested at the time on
one Martin Shnbert and two Mexicans.
Shubert was afterwards convicted of borne
stealing, and has but recently returned
from a term of service in the pen itentiary.
Suspicion being still strong against bim,
he waa arrested and rut in jail Applica
tion was made for bond and the cae was
tried a short time since before Jadge Teich
mneDer of the District Court, who admitted
him to bail tn the asm of t.O"0, which
oot being able to giva, be rentiM in jail.

From the edition of Geo. P. Rowell ft
Go's "American Newspaper Directory,"
published April 2nd (its twentieth year) it
appears that the Newspapers and Periodi
cals of all kinds now issued in the United
States andiCanada, now number 16,310,
showing a gain of 890 during the last 12
months and of 7,136 in 10 years.
The publishers of the directory assart
that the impression that when the proprie
tor of a newspaper undertakes to state what
has been his exact circulation, be does not
generally tell the truth is an erroneous one:
and tbey conspicuously offer a reward of
100 for every instance in their book for
this year, where It can be ahown that the

BELVIN. On Friday the 13th Inst, at
his resldenoe at Uila plaoa. Rev. 11 11
Mulvlu. aaed nearly u years.
The deceased was a native of South Car.
olina, and belonged to the stock of French
nueuenola who have contributed so many
distinguished names to American history.
He came to Texas in 18(5, having, as we
learn, entered the ministry (Uetbodist)
prior to that dale, and was thus one of the
pioneer settlers and ministers or west 'lei-
as. lie was residing at this place, and was
President of Coronal Institute when we
oama here In 1873. His tall, portly and
venerable fluure was well calculated to at
tract atteutlon and eommand respect, al.
though he was singularly modest and unas
suming in hit demeanor. He was one of
the few men of bis calling who "looked the
preaoher." He was distinguished for ele
vation and inflexibility of principle. His
health had been declining for some consid
erable time, so death did not take him by
surprise nor find him unprepared. His
closing days were full of the spirit of Chris.
tiau resignation and trust.
His funeral was attended by a large eon
oourae of his old frieuds and relatives, and
he was buried by the Masonio fraternity of
which he had long been a member.
All persons who propose furulshiug ma.
terial for the supper on to-morrow night,
are hereby requested to report with the
same by noon.

From tht Yank Blade.
I feel a solemn sanctity,
Sweet rest of soul is- mine,
My heart abides in pious peace,
My bonnet sets divinel
Grace, like a river, fills my soul,
In chastened joy I sit,
I feel religion's deepest power,
My sacque's a perfect fit,
A holy fervor penetrates
My soul's remotest nooks,
An earnest, chastened, fervid joy
How ueat that ribbon looksl
The good man tells of Christian peace,
The organ's anthem swells,
I bathe in streams of pure delight,
My dress cost more than Noll's!
0 holy rest! O sabbath oalml
O chastened peace serene!
1 feel thy deep abiding spell,
How dowdy is Miss Green!
I feel a pure, religions glow,
O rapture undefined!
I know my bonnet looks so nice

clous than auy with whloh I havs expert'

tbe antenum, feet and wings of the bug,

As a test of various kinds I used sulphur,

I ean see no benoflcial effects, but hurt the
plants some. I oaught about a dosen of

especially upon those who are within doors
most of tbe time. The peculiar, yet common,

is the result. This feeling can be entirely

which gives new life and strength to all
the functions of the body.
I could not sleep t bad no appetite. I
took Hood's SarsaparUla and soon began to
sleep soundly could get np without that
tired and languid feeling; and my appetite
Improved." B. A. SaxroKO, Kent, Ohio.
