The Gilmore-Clardy murder case is being clusely contested in the Crinii nal court, and the outlook to-day makes it appear that the trial will extend into next week. There are about sixtv witnessess in the case and they are not half through with them. The attorneys had a lively tussel last evening over 'Suire Southrtll's testimony in identifying a wood-cutter. They atl got mad and fired into each other right and left, but soon made it up and went on with the case.- Attorney-General Savage is assisted in the prosecution by R. II. Rurney, and the defendant There are a score of witnesses here in the John Gilmer case. They are of course under the rules, but they are having a jolly time among them selves. Pate Keesee is one of the number and Alf Darnell is another. Pate had Alf on trial this morning before the II. C. Court, Tom Mabrey j sitting, or rather sending as judge. Pate made out the case in this way : He stated that Alf Darnell bought a Wheeler's crop of tobacco at $:) per hundred for the leaf and $1 for the lugs. The tobacco was delivered in bad order and Alf complained. The Wheeler admitted that it was too gh in order, remarking, "But I thought you would do what was right about it." "Yes," replied Alf, 'Them fellows at Clarksville talk about so much per cent, off ; you don't know anything about per cent., nor do I ; suppose we just knock off one dollar on the hundred ?" "All right," said the Wheeler, "that will satisfy me," and Alf just took the fellow's lugs iu for nothing and reduced the leaf to $2 per hundred. Mr. Darnell's defense was that Pate JKeesee had told that lie until he had come to be lieve that it was true. Judge Mabrey has not yet rendered his decision, but it is believed that he will have Mr. Darnell's head held under a spout until he learns how to count per cent, and make him give the Wheeler's wife a calico dress and the children all a pair, of shoes, with the McKinley tariff attached.

The Century Magazine is now so well known that to tell of its past suc cess seems almost an old story. The New York Tribune has said that it and its companion, St. Nicholas for Young Folks, issued by the same house,- "are read Dy every one, person in thirty of the country's popula tion," and largo editions or bom are sent beyond the eeas. It is an inter esting fact that a few years ago it was found that seven tnousauu copies oi Thk Century went to iscotianu, quite a respectable edition in itself. The question in England is no longer "Who reads an America book I" nut "Who does not see the Americau mag azines ?" A few vears ago The Century about doubled its circulation wit1 the famous War Papers, by General Grant and others, adding many more readers later with tne Lincoln History ana Kennau's thrilling articles on the Si berian Exile system. One great feature of 18i)l is to be "THE GOLD HUNTERS OF CALIFORNIA," describing that remarkable movement to the gold fie!ds in '49 in a series of rich ly illustrated articles written by sur vivors, including the narratives of men who went to California by the differ ent routes, accounts of the discoveries, life in the mines, the work of the vig ilance committees (by the chairman of the committees) etc., etc General Fremont's last writing was done for this series.
