from Colutiliiis to" the Age-IIerald,
Whether iu fact Beaaley was allowed to
choose between Columbus and Vernon
we cannot say, but if not, tbe fact re
itiiius, it was a gross violition of the
law: "Tho tarty that arretted Beaaly

and Vernon, ami he cbose the latter,
Tbil c It aily disposes of the lawlessness
of (he arresting party. As to the trit
laiity ot the cllese, the charge was
burjlsry, which is quite a serious of.
lente in Alabama. When he was
brought here it developed he was waul
ed tor murder hbo. Tbe mntier has
no doubt been called lo the attention
of tbe authorities ofcach state and will
be investigated. The states have not
beeo jealous about such things in the
past and if there any f ucb fellows in
Alabama tliat iViississippi wants, we
say cume over and cet them. Beasly
had told eeveral parties in this county
that he was one of the parties who took
the negro, Monroe Wallets, off the
train at Hudson, last Spring. A war-
reut was sworn out charging Beaely
with that ctime, and he now awaits a
trial on the charge of murder, which
will be before Judge Young. Also a
charge of carrying a concealed weapon
will be added to the list.
Tbe following telegram was sent
out from St Louis on the 23rd inst.,
and will be of interest to many at
this place who through business and
other causes narrowly missed taking
advaiitago of tho remarkably cheap ( f)
rates for a visit to Chicago:
"A Southern Express car at the
union station is tbe present abiding
place of nn odd assortment of whito
and colored excursionists from Bir
mingham, Ala., and elsewhere., who
are packed in the car like sardines in
a box. The exoursion originally
numbered about 400 people, who
paid $10 and ?5 for tickots to Chi
cago and return and St Louis and
return. "Tho excursion" was engi
neered by a white man named
Packett and the notorious "Doc"
Kennedy, a negro who has received
considerable renown in tho South aa
the originator of financial hoaxes.
When the party got to West Toint.,
Miss., $(500 additional was required
to continue the trip, as was 3 more
per person for thoso intending to go
on to Chicago when the party
reached St. Louis. About this time
the mental eyes of the majority of
the dupes of Kennedy and his part
ner wore unsealed, and they refused
to pay anything further. A few,
however, paid tho required S3, and
they started for Chicago. Those re
maining here until they can get suf
ficient money to return home will
make any locality pernicious to the
hoalth of Kennedy and l'ackett
should they come across them. Tho
excursionists wero induced to leave
home under the understanding that
work would be furnished them in
Chicago and St. Louis at large
w ages. "
In announcing the fact tbat it wiil

We hava followed him and the
lines of his defense with patient, pains
taking qaro, and with the steady, eai"
nest and pitiless purpose to paint the
truth upon his name and character in
letters which all men could read.
We invite the scorn and con
tempt of every honest man in Tennes
see; we respectfully ask to be kicked
from every man's door, we leg to be
spurned and spit upon with loathing,
and to be loaded with the execrations
of all deceut people, if we fail to de"
raolioh the most audacious fraud ever
conceived ia the heart or perpetrated
by the band of man, if we do not
sweep it utterly from tbe face of the
earth, and 'leave not a rack behind.'
We undertake to sustain the further
charge that,thougti every thing we have
said of McDowell is true; and though it
were ten times worse than we had pre
dicted it, the worse thing he has ever
done in his mottled, and malodorous
career is a cardinal virtue compared
with the degree of business and the
depth of moral turpitude displayed in
his so-called 'Viadicatiou.'

Prof. It. it. Garner of Washington,
who made a special study of the lan
guage of monkeys, says : "I have
given eight years of my life to the
study of this fu:,j:ct, and have con
vinced myself ot the existence of a
monkey language. I reason from the
basis of evolution tbat if man ia only
the developement of the monkey, they
muet have among other characteristics
ia common, the faculty of speech, and
preceediDg upon this theory I record
ed the utterances of various monkeys
on tbe phonograph and caused them to
be repeated in the presence of other
monkeya of the Simian tribe. The
latter evidently understood them, and
by investigating further I found that
tbe Word 'food,' which, as spokeD by
monkeys, is hardly translatable into
English, was spoken by all of them.
I aUo discovered that their langu&ge
has but three cousonant and two vow
el sounds. My experiments have
been chiefly oonducted with a brown
Capuchin South American monkey in
Washington, and two cliimpazees in
the CiLcinnati Zoological Garden.
I propose making a trip to Africa next
year to take down the speech of the
monkey in his native wilds, and I am

The star of Dr. Koch, the great
physician, whoee discovery of an anti
consumption lymph sot tbe world a
wonJering ouly a few months ago, is
soon to rise agaiu, says the Philadel
phia Record of Monday : Dr. Ear
nest La Place, of the medico-Chirurg:-cal
College naid yesterday that within
a very short time the world will hear
again from Koch, that he will make
important scientific revalat.ons and
that he is on the right road toward a
cure of consumption. This statement
from Dr. La Place ia of the utmost
importance, fur he keeps fully inform
ed of all tbat transpires in the studies
and laborities of European scientists,
and enjoys as well a close personal ac
quaintance with Dr. Koch. Dr. La
Place, in response to a question as to
whether he was not a great beleiver
in Dr. Koch, added : "I think that
he is on the right path, and if his in
vestigations are pursued results of the
utmost importance to the medical pro
fession will be reached. You see,
when Koch mado his first announce
ment some months ago the whole
world went ciazy, and the lymph was
heralded as a cure-all. An unscientific
public said immediately that it 'would
accomplish lots of things that Koch
never promised. And what was the
result? Pereous dying of consumption
were not cured, and Dr. Koch was
blamed for it. This accounts for bis
apparent eclipse of la'.e. When be is
heard from again the world will see
tbat he is a benefactor of the race af
ter all. Times Democrat.
