A CHINESE STORY.

Locked from worm and rust away.
Never plow before, I wi.

Did our finder gloat by stealth
O'er his unexpected wealth?
And in worthy hiding-place

Did he seU it-iiker yet

Bather, straightway hurried he
With it to the seller. "See!
Bring I thee this treasure fine,
Digged up yonder; take, tie thine."
But the latter answered: "No;
When we traded so and so,

With whatever it might hold."

THE CARMI CHUMS.
The Carmi Chums was the name they
went by all alone the river. Host other
roustabouts had each a name of his own;
so had the Carmi Chtims, for that mat
ter, bat the men themselves were never
mentioned individually always collect
ively. No steamboat Captain who want
ed only a single man ever attempted to
hire half of t he Carmi Chums at a time
as easy would it have been to have hired
half of the Siamese Twins. No steam
boat mate who knew them ever attempted
to "tell off" the Chums into different
watches, and any mate who, not know
ing them, committed this blunder, and
adhered to it after explanation was made,
was sore to be two men short immedi
ately after leaving the steamer's next
landing. There seemed no possible way
of separating them; they never fell out
with each other in the natural course of
events; they never fought when drank,
as other friendly roustabouts sometimes
did, for the Carmi Chums never got
drunk; there never sprang np any cool
ness between them because of love for
the same lady, for they did not seem to
care at all for female society, unless they
happened to meet some old lady whom
one might love as a mother rather than
as a sweetheart. Even professional busy-
bodies, from whose presence roustabouts
are no freer than church members, were
unable to provoke the Uarmi Chums even
to suspicion, and those of them who at
tempted it too persistently were likely to
have a difficulty with the slighter of the
Chums. This man, who was called
Black, because of the celor of his hair.
was apparentlv forty years of age, and
of very ordinary appearance, except
when an occasional furtive, frightened
look came into his face and attracted at
tention. His companion, called Bed,
because his hair was of the hue of car
rots, and because it was occasionally
neoessaryto distinguish him from his
friend, seemed of about tVe same age
and degree of ordinariness as Black, but
was rather stouter, more cheery, and, to
use the favorite roustabout simile, held
his head closer to the current. He
seemed, when Black was absent-minded
(as he generally was while off duty), to
be the leading spirit of the couple, and
to be tenderly alive to all of his partner's
needs; but observing roustabouts no
ticed that when freight was being moved,
or wood taken on board, BUck was al
ways where he could keep an eye on his
chum, and where he could demand in
stant reparation from any wretch who
trod upon lied s toes, or who with
shoulderload of wood grazed Bed's head,
or touched tied with box or barrel.
Next to a neighborly wonder as to the
existence of the friendship between the
Chums, roustabouts with whom the
couple sailed concerned themselves most
with the cause of the bond between them.
Their searches after first causes were no
more successful, however, than those of
the naturalists who are endeavoring to
ascertain who laid the cosmic egg. They
gave out that they came from Carmi, so,
once or twice, when Captains with whom
the chums were engaged determined to
seek a cargo up the Wabash, npon which
river Carmi was located, inquisitive
roustabouts became light-hearted. But,
alas, for the vanity of human hopes!
when the boat reached Carmi the Chums
could not be found, nor could any inhab
itant of Carmi identify them by the de
scriptions which were given by inquiring

rather cultivated them, in fact, although
it was a difficult bit of business, for
roustabouts who wouldn't say "thank

dles of which a steamboat Captain could
take hold. Lady passengers took con
siderable notice of them, and were more
successful than any one else at drawing
them into conversation. The linguistic
accomplishments of the Chums were not
numerous, but it did one good to see

a lady addressed him, and to see tho

are about as disinclined to float as bars

ladies, with very pole faces, gathered
a group and whispered earnestly
each other ; then ensued visits to each

THE MORGAN MYSTERY.
Alleged Confession One of the Murderers
of the Masonic Apostate.
The publication of an article by Thur
low Weed, assuming to throw new light
upon the Morgan Masonic mystery, but
which contained no facts new to the pub
lic, has caused the republication of the
confession of Henry Jj. Valance, who
died in 1848, accusing himself of the
murder of Morgan. This was published
in a pamphlet at the time, entitled,
" Confession of the Murder of William
Morgan, as taken down by Dr. John L.
Emery, of Racine county, Wis., in the
summer of 1848, and now (1849) first
given to the public," and sets out as fol
lows: " My last hour is approaching ; and as
the tilings of this world fade from my
mental sight, I feel the necessity of mak
ing, as far as in my power lies, that
atonement which every violator of the
great law of right owes to his fellow-
men. 1 allude to the abduction and
murder of the ill-fated William Mor-
gan." He hero proceeds with an inter
esting narrative of the proceedings of
the fraternity in reference to Morgan
while he was incarcerated in the maga
zine of Fort Niagara. The confessor
continued : " Many plans were proposed
and discussed and rejected, it
finally agreed by a council of eight that
he must die ; must be consigned to a
confinement from which there is no pos
sibility of escape the grave. Eight
pieces of paper were procured, five of
which were to remain blank, while the
letter D was written on the others.
These pieces of paper were placed in
large urn from which each man was to
draw one at the some moment.
" After drawing we were all to separ
ate, without looking at the paper that
each held in his hand. So soon as wo
had arrived at a certain distance from
the place of rendezvous the tickets were
to be examined, and those who held
blanks were to return instantly to their
homes, and those who should hold
marked tickets were to proceed to the
fort at midnight, and there put Morgan
to death in such a manner as should
seem to themselves most fitting." Mr.
Valance was one of the three that drew
the fatal letter D. Ho then returned
immediately to the fort, where he was
joined by tho other two, who had likewise
drawn the death tickets. "Ar
rangements were immediately made to
sink him in the Niagara river with
weights, in hopes that he and our crime
alike would thus be buried beneath the
waves. While my comrades were to
procure a boat, it was my lot to goto the
fort where Morgan was confined, and
announce to him his fate. Morgan, on
being informed of the proceedings
against him, and what they intended to
do with him, demanded by what author
rity they hod condemned him, and who
were his judges. He commenced
wringing his hands and talking of his wife
and children, the recollection of whom
in that awful hour terribly affected me.
His wife ho said was young and inex
perienced, and his children were bnt in
fants. What would become of them
were he to be cut off, and they even igno
rant of his fate ? Morgan was told that
his remonstrances were idle; that ho
must die, and that, too, before the morn
ing light. He continued to plead most
piteously for his life on behalf of his
family. My comrades had in the mean
time returned, saying they had procured
a boat. On consultation we concuded
give him half an hour to prepare for his
inevitable fate. For this we retired from
the magazine and left him. How Mor
gan passed the time I cannot tell,
all was quiet as the tomb within. At tne
expiration of the time we entered
magazine, laid hold of Morgan, bound
his hands behind him, placed a gag
his mouth, and led him forth. A short
time brought us to tho bout, and we en
tered it, . Morgan being placed in the
bow with myself alongside of him. My
comrades took the oars, and the boat was
rapidly forced out into the river. The
night was pitch dork we could scarcely
see a rod before us and therefore was
tho time admirably adapted to our hell
ish purpose. Having reached proper dis
tance from the shore, our oarsmen ceased
their labors. The weights were secured
together by a strong cord, and another
cord of equal strength, and of several
yards in length, proceeded from that.
This cord I took in my own hand and
fastened it around tho body of Morgan,
just above his hips, using all my ssill
make it fast, so that it would be sure
hold. Then in a whisper bade the un
happy man to stand up, and after a mo
ments hesitation ho complied with my
order. He stood close to the head
the boat, and there was just length
enough of rope from his person to the
weights to prevent any strain while
was standing. I then requested ono
my associates to assist in lifting the
weights from tho bottom to the side
the boat, whilo the other steadied
from tho stern. This was done, and,
Morgan was standing with his back ward
me, I approached him and gave
him a strong push with both my hands,
which were placed on the middle of
back. He fell foiward, carrying the
weights with hini, and the waters closed
over tho mass. We remained quiet
two or three minutes, when my compan
ions, without saying a word, resumed
'their places, and rowed the boat to
place from which they had taken it"

A contributor to the The Popular
Science Monthly says : We obtained an
idea of love differentially as it exists in
the sexes by observing the degree to
which it affects men and women as a
probable cause of insanity. In the same

These causes, which present such dissim

affect the emotional port of the physical

that women are less able to bear the
operation of these exciting causes than
men ; but that the emotional nature of
woman is more largely developed, and
thus more exposed to the action of such
causes as directly affect it. If I am
right in tins, we would expect to see in
women the emotional forms of insanity
developed in excess of men ; and this is
just what we find. Continuing to analyze

This afternoon, says the Cincinnati
Times of the 20th of August, the horse-
auction market on Fifth street was the
scene of the most shocking fratricide
that has ever occurred in the history of
the city. The actors in the tragedy
were Thomas Moron, Nicholas Moran
and William Moron, brothers, over 50
years of age and heads of families.
During the settlement of business for
the day these men, horse-sharps in every
sense of the term, became involved in
quarrel, and in a few minutes came to
blows. It was an old difficulty, a repe
tition of a wrong on the port of William
Moran, which drew down upon him the
vengeance of his exasperated brothers.
The big crowd of horsemen and loafers
sympathized with Thomas and Nicholas,
and formed a circle around the trio to
see it out. William was soon knocked
down, and, while his brothers showered
a torrent, of oaths terrific to hear, they
literally kicked his skull to pieces, and
only desisted when the poor, bleeding
form that was their brother ceased to
breathe. In all the crowd not one offered
to interfere to prevent the shocking
deed, but, when it was over, the police
appeared and arrested the fratricides.
To-night they are in the police-station,
crying because their brother is dead.
Ho was a quarrelsome, bad man, a ter
ror among the terrible men of the place,
but the enormity of his tuking-off has
stricken the stolid natures of the horse
sharps with horror, and the scene .of the
sickening tragedy wears a peculiar air
grimness to-night that even the habitues
of the region do not care to disturb. Un
the same spot, a few years ago, a man
was brained with a chair in tho hands
a drunken horse-dealer. A recollection
of that tragedy gives peculiar emphasis
to the slaughter of Moron.

FINANCE AND TRADE.
Weekly Review of the Chicago Market.
The money market was without any change..
Money plenty. Interest rates unchanged.
Gorernment bonds steady.
The grain markets have again attracted con
siderable attention from speculators and opera
tors generally, and quite an active business was
transacted. At the same time a rath
er unsettled feeling prevailed. Early
the in week speculators were buy
ing to a moderate extent at the decline,
but the increased demand caused an improve
ment all round in values. The fine weather
and favorable crop reports caused a decline
during the closing days of the week. The
closing quotations, however, were about the
same as at the opening. Movement mainly on
speculative account, shippers doing
but little in the way of buying.
The following table shows the prices current
at the opening and close of the past week:

There has been loss activity in the market for
butter eince our last review, and an easier feel
ing was devoloped. The advices received from
the East wore rather unfavorable in tone, which
had a tendency to check the demand on ship
ping account. There was some demand from
parties who aeetrea lots tor uie pnrpeee oi re

purchases when lots could be obtained at a
shade easier prices. The receipts, however,
were only moderate, ana uie stock on liar.a
being light, holders wore alow to grant concoft

For the bettor qualities ot butter there was a
fair demand on local account, and the sapplv of
really choice grades was light. They were
beta witn considerable tenacity ana iormor
prices were obtained. There was a good de

A Mother's Love.
A touching story of the late inundation
in France comes through a letter to the
New York Tribune :
A young mother is awakened by the
inundation. She has two children, twins
at the breast, adorable little girls. The
water invades her house ; it is night, and
the hour is full of terror. The hus
band takes care of himself and
mounts on the roof. But the woman
thinks only of her children ; she ties
them to her breast with a scarf, and, as
she is about to swim from the house she
thinks that the bread-trough will serve
as a boat. The house is tottering as the
mother embarks in her frail boat She
is scarcely out of the house when it goes
to pieces. The husband disappears m
the rums. The little boat floats away,
bnt strikes against a tree and is over
turned. The poor woman seizes a branch
and climbs into the tree with the strength
of a lioness hghtmg for her young, lint
the tree is young ; it bends ; it will not
hold all three. The mother sees that the

conquered. She ties her children to the
strongest branch, Bhe kisses them again
and again, she signs them with the sign
of tho cross, and cries, " To the mercy
of God I" This piteous drama was wit
nessed by spectators who could do noth
ing in aid until a quarter of an hour was
gone. The mother was drowned, but
the children were saved like Moses.

funeral was an occasion of mourning in
the midst of the general sorrow. Her
face seemed sanctified by her action.
One of my Iriends said to me, " I never
saw such a beauty." Her eyes were half
closed, her hps were slightly open, her
hands crossed above her breast as if she
were stm praying for ner children.

The Accident to Edwin Booth.
Monday moraine, Mr. Booth, who
had 03 his guest Dr. Kellogg, Superin-
teBdondont of Uie btato insane Asylum
at rouglikecpsie, started for Stamford,
with the double purpose of exercising
his tiorsos and enabling his guest to ad
mire the pictnresqno scenery of a foiir-
niilo drive. Ho had selected for the
work his favorite mare Nellie and her
colt, and, taking the lines, he turned
their heads in the direction of btamford.
They traveled at a rood pace, and ex-
within a mile of Btamford village, the
headstall of the colt broke, and Mr.
Booth became unable to guide or check
the team. The colt naturally became
frightened, and started down Uie hill at
a break-neck rate of speed, carrying
along her more sedate mate. Mr. Booth
was quickly thrown against a telegraph
polo with great force, and rendeied tem
porarily insensible. Dr. Kellogg man
aged to retain his sent for somo time and
endeavor to check the speed of Nellie
and her colt, but was unsucceasf ul. He,
too, was thrown out, and received severe
cuts on the head, front and back. His,
injuries, however, were but slight, and
when the villagers came out and assisted
in the removal of the two wounded gen-
tlomen to Mr. Booth's residence, the
Doctor was so for convalescent that he
declined assistance and asked them to
aid the great actor.
Mr. Booth was carefully lifted, whilo
still in an insensible condition, from the
rosJsiJe and carried to his homo at Cos
Cob. Ho spoke for the first time upon
his arrival home, when ho asked for his
wifo and daughter, and at once recog
nized them. Mr. Booth a injuries are
slight, consisting of a fracture of the
left arm, below the elbow, and of two
