ViCKsiu'ittJ, Mips, Aug. 20 Judge Powell, Deputy Sheriff of Sharkey county, arrested George Mnrh uml MoXoil for the burning of King's stoie unil tho fiendish murilor of its sleeping inmates The arrest of both men cri'iiti'il intense interest in river circles, where they are well known nnd among tho people of tho lower Sunflower, Littlo and Ilig Deer Crock anil Stceler ISayoti, where they tiro also well known, anil lutve been for many yuan engaged" in farming anil in rafting. George Marsh is a raftsman and occasionally farms lie is tall, about (J foot 2) inches in height, has large light blue eyes, rather pleasing expression of countenance, palo hire anil liglit brown hair and light mustache and beard. Ho is often in Vicks-burg, and is well known to travelers up and down Sunflower river. MuXeil was arrested in jail at Rolling Fork on Friday hut. Tho matter of the arrest was n surprise to everybody who knew them, as both seemed 'to bear the reputation of peaceable, law-abiding men. The investigation of the case was to have come up at 10 n. m., but owing to no wire connection with Rolling Fork or any proximate point thereon we havo bjjeii unable in yet to get the result of the trial or the revelations made bv tho witness From Mr. George F. Ring it was learned that arrest of tho two men had been made on the testimony of McNeil's wife, who divulged that licr husband and Marsh robbed the store and then set lire to it, on the night of March 4, 183:1. Mrs. McXcil, K'veral years ago, it is said, made revelations .o'f u similar horrible character, accusing the parties of the crime, but she was on ome evidence or other adjudged insane and looked up in the asylum, from which she lias but recently been released. On recovering fcer liberty sho imidtt the same statements which led to the arrest of these two men as above stated. The following is n resume of the facts in connection with the horrible trgedy suddenly revived: At this place- on the night of Tuesday, March 4, 1SS3, while tho steamer Lizzie, which nt that time ran tin the Sunflower river, was lying at Coelilnw Landing, it being a cold, drizzling, rainy night, lliimi's were seen rising above the cypress trees to the west of the river. It was supposed at the time that King's store was on fire, but no one dreamed that all of the inmates hail been roasted alived in the burning building. On the arrival of the boat at Hollands, four miles above C'hoelaw, the dreadful particulars of the tragedy were learned trom parties who rode across the country. Tho bodies of .lessio Moore and his wife. John Gniiehatt, clerk in the store, and little Willie Jems were found among the charred timbers and ashes .after the lire. The bones of Joe Ring were never found, although he was in the building on the night of the burning, having gone up on the steamer Lizzie, from with a lot of freight. An iniptest was held, resulting in a verdict of death by violence. It seems that they were by parties that cnjne to rob, and that they were burned to hide the fact. Mr. Moore's head, or rather skull, bore the impress of an ax about the left temple. Mr. Gouchatt's head was so burned that nothing could bo ascertained by an examination ns to the manner of his death. Mr. and Mrs. Moore were found lyingiust as if they had met their fate in their beds. Moors and Willie Jeans seem to have arisen and been killed near the door of tho oflice in which Mr. Gouchatt slept: Thev must have heard the assassins in the otlice dispatching Mr. Gouchatt. It seems highly improbable or impossible for them to have been burned without having first been murdered, as the building was well supplied with doors and windows all around. BLADE-MITCHELL. Attempt to Interfere 'Willi Nlnde n Failure. Kansas City. Aug. 20. The receipt by Marshal Murphy of u letter from Governor Crittenden instructing him to see that Herbert A. Slade did not violate the laws of Missouri by training for a prizefight in this county5 caused something of a sensation in sporting eiroles in this city. The lotter received by Marshal Murphy was prefaced with : "I understand that Prosecuting Attorney Wullaee is absent from your county, and in his absence 1 to call yourattention to sections loOG and 1507, Revised Statutes of Missouri." He then goes on to say that he expects the Marshal to see that tficse sections are not violated by Herbert A. Slade, noV in training nt Independence, fur a fight with Charles Mitchell. As is well-known, tho sections referred to make it a felony to engage in a prize-fight in MU.ouri, eithet as principal, trainer, nider or abetter, or to train jor a fight, which is to c.niio olf either in Missouri or any other State. Shortly after ho had received tho letter Marshal Murphy was asked concerning his intentions in tho matter. He declared that he hud no official kuowledgo of tho alleged fiii't that Slade was training for a prize fiht, but that if ho could seeuro any witnesses who would swear that such was tho fact, ho would at onco proceed to make arrests. He apprehended that there would bo somo difficulty in securing evidence 'to (-how that Slade was training for a prize fight. Ho would, however, go to Independence at onco and see what was being done down thero among tho sporting There was a good denl of feeling engendered by tho action of tho Governor, and his interference was donounccd by all thoso who had looked forward to tho fight as a great sporting event. Tho upshot of tho Interference, oho ardent admirer of the manly art declared, will be thnt the fight will be declared off. Slade said as soon ns he heard the news that he did not intend to leave until the matter was settled ; that a stranger had a perfect right to come out hero for his health. Murphy went to Independence to seo if his deputy was attending to business. The deputy said that the only thing to record was that a stranger had arrived who passed his time pitching ipioits. No nrrcsts wero made. A SENSELESS HOAX. Nprciulliiff I'iiIno ItriiorlM Ilcgnrtllut; ClioM'rti. iNMANAroLis, Aug. 20. Dr. E. S. Elder, Secretary of the local Hoard of Health, was mystified by receiving a request from tho telegraph ofllco to give the location of tho firm of Fowler & Co., Chicago, to whom a telegram with his signature had been sent. He investigated, and found that a boy had gone into the Western Union office and prepaid the charges on the following message : " August 21, 1883. To Fowler & Co., Chicago, 111. : Thrco cases of cholera reported here. Two fatal. Signed Dji. E. S. Eldkh. Tho dispatch was wholly a diabolical forgery, but tho news of its receipt in had leaked out and created something of a scare. "Local correspondents of the Chicago papers wero asked for the particulars of the cases and could learn nothing upon which suuhan inquiry could bo based until tho telegram camo to the notice of Dr. Elder. Dr. Elder has no idea of tho source of the dispatch, nor can he fathom tho motive of the perpetration' of the forgery, unless it was by some one endeavoring to affect tho market. The clerk nt tho Western Union says thero was nothing in the manner of the boy to indicate anything wrong or to arouso suspicion. Why the dispatch should havo been sent to n firm that apparently does not exist is another curious feature of the wicked business. The venerable Dr. Sexton, of Kushvillc, was reported in a Cincinnati paper to be suffering from cholera, but investigation shows that his trouble is nothing but cholera morbus. CONFEDERATE ARMY. Action of the Oonruln LeulMnturo on a War Claim. Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 20. In the House of Representatives the resolution to n the Mathingly bond was killed, by n vote of 117 to 3U. Tho history of the" case is this: In 1801 Governor Joe Brown of this State, bought from the Sharp Rifle Company a supply of guns, paying $25,000 cash down anil issuing twenty-two 5(l(. bonds payable to bearer ut the end of twenty years. The bonds were turned over tc James l'enfield, agent of the company, who afterward sold them to George Mathingly. Mr. Mathingly appeared before the Judiciary Committee of tile House this session and exhibited the bonds and the evidence of his purchase. The coiiunittet looked into the question and submitted a majority report stating that this was a just claim against Georgia and recommending its payment. The debute in the House was very lively, the argument going to show that the debt was an honest one. Mr. Gi'v, of Richmond, who concluded the debate, said that Georgia could not afford not to take these bonds, and if she did her net would amount to repudiation. Legal opinions from .Senator Ren Hill, Governor Stephens, Gun. Uobeii Toombs, and Governor Hrowu himself were read by Mr. Gary, all stating that the claim is just and that the Stale ought to pay it. The overwhelming defeat of the resolution was a great surprise. Tho opposition held that (he sellers of the guns Knew at the time of the sale that they wero to be used in aid of the rebellion. The bonds with interest amount to $00,000. A DARK DEED. Ilrutnl Murder ly Ueoruln Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 20. About two years ago Tom .Martin, a negro revenue spy, way murdered in tho Ren Smith District in Grlnnell County and his body thrown into a creek. Charles Lilley, who has been investigating the case, reported to the authorities here the arrest of Nathan Brown and Willis Brown, two white men charged with tho crime. Lilley says the negro Martin camo to tho Ren Smith District two years ago and tried to get work at a distillery run by the Browns, who suspected that ho was a revenue spy and refused to employ him. Martin then applied to a tanner named Dillard, who gave him work on his farm. One night, a short time after Dilhinl employed the negro, the two Browns, with six other illicit distillers, went at midnight to Dillard's, took Martin to the banks of the stream, nnd having wound long chains, stolen from old man Dillard, around the body of the crushed in the back of his skull with u and threw him in tho creek. Several days after thero was a freshet and tho body was washed up ou tho dam, where it was found loaded with the chains. Lilley claims to havo amnio evidence to convict tho Browns, and is also confident that he will ferret out tho other murderers. .lira. Kdily'H Will. Boston. Mass, Aug. 20. Tho validity of tho will of Mrs. Eliza F. Eddy; who loft a large amount of money to be divided ciuully between Susan B. Anthony and I. ,ey Stone Blackwoll, was confirmed, it wus bitterly contested by Mrs. E.i y's relatives, and tho Supremo Court has in-tiered that tho money bo paid over to tl. 'so two ladies. Mrs. Eddy left about SSt,od0. Legacies to tho amount of mo given to various friends and relatives, and tho remainder, about $32,000 is divided equally botween Susan B. Anthony and Lucy Stone, with tho request that "said Susan and Lucy uso said fund thus given to further what is called tho woman's rights cause." Wendell Phillips is ouo of the legatees of Mrs. Eddy's will. .ftl,, ,4'Mff A it THE INDIAN HORROR Sickening Confession of One of tho Murderers.

The youthful murderers of Mount Vernon have made a lull of the horrible crime. There is little difference in the statements of Snyder and Anderson, other than one wants to shift the thr lat-cutting onto sho other. Snyder says that he and Anderson met Van way, tho vijtim, on the levee at 6 o'clock Friday morning; that they went some distance from tho iron bridge to go in swimming. Alter arriving there they tried to borrow money from V.tuway. Hi- refused to loan them any. Anderson then knocked him down uml cut hi throat.

The Unite was found in a brush-heap. It is a common wooden-handled kuile witli u blade abjut two inches long. Anderson made the following statement: " Zach Snyder and 1 met Vunway on the levee under tho Homing mill warehouse. We were going up to go in swimming. I asked Vunway to go along, lie went witli us up above the iron bridge. After we got there Snyder trim to borrow some money from Van way, but he would not let him "have it. We got sparring and Van-way hit mc a h 1 of a lick, and I knocked him down. He got up and said that I must not do that again. Snyder then knocked him down with a club nnd Mit on his head. 1 held his feet and legs while Snyder cut his throat. He borrowed tlie knife from me. Vunway did not sav anything except ' My God, Zaeli, don't kill mo. lie struggled a little when Snyder cut his throat, but not much.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of William M. Knight, Senator Groom's brother-in-law, and a prominent politician of the First District, on a charge of assaulting with a pistol Thomas Broxon, the son of a tenant of one of his houses, and thicnteuing to take the young man's life. It appears that Mr. Knight had gone to tho place tenanted by Broxon, where they wero picking and shipping peaches, and .ordered theni to stop, saying that they were too green and not fit for market. This brought on a controversy between him and the Broxons, in which hard words wero used on both sides. Young Broxon finally applied u most insulting epithet to Mr. knightwho went to his house, procured his pistol, and returning, drew it upon young Broxon, demanding a retraction of tho epithet. Broxon retracted, nnd then drove to Elkton and swore out the war-ant. I I ! A Chicken. Pincknkyville, I Li,., Aug. 20. A contribution to tho oddities of nature was made by an enterprising hen, tho property of M. B. Hawkins, upon his fnrm this place n few days since, in the hhapo of a young chicken, who made its appearance furnished with double tho usual quantity of legs and with two tail appendages. Tho extra set of legs are attached immediately in tho rear of the ordinary pair, und are of tho same length as the others, but are not used in action, but drawn up and kept in reserve. lliiTnceH of Uofg Cholera. CiMSTEii, III., Aug. 20. Tho hog cholera has been and is yet very bad in this (Randolph) county. A number of farmers havo lost thirty nnd forty head. The penitentiary has lost thirty head despite tho greatest enre, and it seems impossible to check tho disease, all patent hog mixtures and remedies being a failure. i i i Itutlcr'M Invitation. Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 20. Governor received a very cordial letter from Governor Ben. Butler, of Massachusetts, to visit tho Boston Exposition in September, but declined on account of pressure of official duties. BAD MRS. PARRISH. Ilor Little Schorao for NwlutlllnB Vncle Nnm. St. Louts, Aug. 20. Maj. Whitney, Surveyor of Customs, has sent a letter to the inspector at tho Chicago port, saying that Mrs. Purrish had never got any good3 through the St. Louis port. It was in answer to a communication from the officers who had arrested tho woman on a chargo of smuggling. Subsequent to her capture she confessed that she had mado ten trips to England for tho purposo of smuggling costly garments, and sho said that one of the consignments was to St. Lour?. But tho local ofheers discredit that part ol her confession, because .thero is no evidence to support it, and at the samo time they are nonplussed as to her motive for telling such a story. Mrs. Purrish presents a new aspect of tho life of a professional smuggler. Under tho pretense of being a medium for tho care-worn and broken-hearted rich people of Chicago, sho occupied fashionable quarters on tho West Side. Several years ago she visited England, nnd by u streak of good fortune became ucquainicd with somo ladies of rwk and wealth. She put her acquaintance to tho vulgar use of surveying their wnrdrobes, which she found to contain costly dresses that had been cast aside on the appearance of the first wrinkle. Sho purchased a large number of them und had them packed for America. They passed inspection because their appearance of having been worn seomed to corroborate her affidavit that they were a portion of her personal wardrobe. The first consignment was to Chicago, nnd somo of tho shoddy aristocrats of that place bought tho dresses nt n high price compared with what they cost the importer. Tho experiment proved profitable and on tho succeeding year was repeated with equal success. Alter passing inspection for a number of times the officers began to suspect her, and sho was watched. It was not long until her game was discovered, and sho was ut once arrested. A TAX QUESTION. ' Uncle Nam'M IllKhtn in the Imllnn Territory. Washinoton, D.C., Aug. 20. The of Internul Revenue to-day received a communication from thecollectot at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., which raises the important question, and in which tin right of the United States to collect taxes in the Indian territory is involved. From the statement mado by the collector it that one of his deputies was attending to his duties in the territory, when Governor Overton, of the Chickasaw nation, ordered him not to assess taxes upon any merchants in the territory, foi by a decision of the United States Supreme Court M had declared tli.it the government hud no right to collect taxes ir the Indian territory. The governor followed this up with violent abuse of the revenue agent, mid onleied him out of the Indian territory, at the snnie time calling him a fraud and arepiesentativeof a gang of bloodsuckers. Acting upon the uilvict of the governor several merchants, win have Hitherto been prompt in paying the taxes, declined to pay them until som. definite action should should be taken b the treasury department. Accordingly tht communication of the collector has been referred to the Solicitor of the Interim! Revenue Bureau, with the request that he should investigate and report concerning the power of the government in the premises. DEAD IN THE WOODS. Thi Sail Kiid of a Melancholy Jer-man. Nr.w York, Aug. 20. Charles A. Furthmun, a German about forty years old, conducted his business of slipper at 40 First street for several years, llis wife and four children lived on the second floor of tho same building. Their domestic relations wero of the happiest description. For several months past Mr. 1" iirthman's business had been toor, and he become downhearted. Last Monday morning ho was in a jovial mood, however, and laughed at a joke ho saw in a newspaper, and watched with even childish pleasure a procession of German soldiers in First avenue. While his wife was sitting at tho window she saw him put his pocketbook and some papers in her bureau. It was tho first time she ever knew him to open one of tho drawers of that piece of furniture. Shortly afterward he stooped down, kissed her lips, bid her left, saying he was going to visit a friend and would not be home to dinner. He did not return that night nor on Tue.sday,and Mrs. Furthinan and her friends became alarmed, and asked the police to look for him. He left home well-dressed in dark clothes and wearing a Derby hat and congress gaiters. Shortly before 7 o'clock in the morning a boy walking along tho roadway at Bull's Ferry, just above Guttenberg, found Furthman'rt body stretched upon tho grass under the trees near an unfrequented part of tho road. Besido tho body lay an empty bottle, and a drinking glass stained with a blue mixture. A NOTED SCAMP. Arri'sl of John Allan "Nosey" O'llrlen, 1 Sr. Louis Aug. 25.
