A corresjMuident of G!aium J!ural World, who signs himself "Young Fanner" and tenders advice to his brother agriculturalists, says: "We should not neglect to read the papers." Certainly not; and if you wisli to im prove you mind and insure your future salvation, subscribe for the Bazoo. The religious intelligence, in the Sun day edition particular!)', has saved many a family from ennui on the Lord's daw The readers of the Bazoo are cau tioned against patronizing establish ments that advertise they will do this, that and the other thing on rH.-eipt of ten or filteen cents, as it has just come to light that while the articles arc sent all right, the list of names and ad dresses thus accumulated are sold to dealers in obscene literature who solicit patronage on this information. Young ladies should be very careful in send ing their names and addresses to irre sponsible establishments in the east that advertise "25 address cards for 15 cents," unless they are impervious to a shock of modesty. A very attractive programme has been received of the commencement exercises of the Baptist Female Col lege that will take place in Lexington to-day. Also of the subsequent exer cises to continue until the 6th instant inclusive. The sermon before the Young Ladies' Foreigu Missionary So ciety will le delivered this evening by Rev. J. C. Davidson of this city ; the annual sermon, in the morning, by Kev. A. W. Chambliss, of Boonville. Misses Emma . and Jennie S. Spurgeon, of this county, will be among the graduates. The former will read an essay entitled "Enduring Monuments" and the latter another entitled "After Graduation, What?" Miss Jennie's essay is, no doubt, by far the most outreachiug. And yet, her iuterrogatory is susceptible of a very rational answer. Who has not j noticed with what cciat very many brilliantly endowed young men and women have graduated r " com menced " life and gone forth into the arena of life to battle with its tem pestuous elements and carve for them selves a conspicuous niche in the Temple of Fame. They have been taught that "the world is theirs who take it." But they find so many moving on exactly the same line and with the same objective, the world is not easily taken, even by the most robust in intellect and physique. Then what do they do? Need we refer to the many masculines who have subsided into quiet and comforta ble social positions. And the women? Jennie, the. most direct answer the Bazoo can give to your interrogatory is: "Marriage; a comfortable home and a large family." Are we astray ? If the effect of education had a con trary tendency, alas for society. The Presbyterian General Assera bly has referred a resolution to one of its committees requesting journalists to limit the details oi crime and thus prevent the debasement of public morals. Juxhange. The best thing that this august ec clesiastical body can do, now, is to pass auoincr resolution urn no in era ue re of the church, nor divines, commit any crimes whatsoever, and in way "prevent ine ueoasenieni 01 mor- U" by cutting off the newspapers' T source of supply in those directions. There have been too many persons, ligh in social standing, sanctimonious and apparently devout and, unfortu nately couuected with church organi zations in different parts of the coun try who have come before the public lately in an unenviable light, for any ecclesiastical body to arrogate unto it self the dictatorial power of guiding the editors of newspapers on the principle that "1 am holier than thou." When a man, or woman, who is not a church-member falls it is bad, but when one who has allowed himself, or herself, to be looked up to as a bright and shining example of Christian pur- itj and faith, is proved to be only "a wolf in sheep's clothing," the effect on society generally, and particularly on the rising generation, is infinitely worse. More persons are restrained from committing crimes bv reason of the telegraph sis connected with the newspapers in supplying news of all kinds, than would be the case if the fact were otherwise. There are thou sands of persons who care nothing about the proceedings in a court of justice, but they do possess a very healthv detestation of having their shortcomings in cash and other re spects pilloried in the columns of a live, daily journal before the jury of the world. When the ministers, as well as others in responsible positions cease to furnish scandal matter for the columns of those papers that pub lish the news, irrespective of sectarian or other considerations, a step will have lieen taken in at least one direction against the debasement of morals. Much of the infidelity of the country has been occasioned by those who were thought to be stiong planks in the the temple ot the Lord having been proved but flimsy, rotten ones; all varnish, veneer ami no substance. VERA S ASS tJLITCH. The Story of the Crime and Who Participated. Those Nihilism in Its Most Forbdding and Repulsive Forms. Corn if tin- NViv York Timo. Paris, April 28. The excitement caused, not only at St, Petersburg bnt all over the Continent by the Vera Snssulitch trial has not yet abated. New details appear every day, and the a flair has assumed the proportions of a formidable event. The jury which acquitted this young woman, accused of shooting the Chief of the Russian Police was composed of Government officials, of merchants and artisans. The audience belonged to the highest classes of society, among whom were sevn Senators, even Prince Gorstch akoff in persons all in uniform and blazing with decorations. Yet it was amid the fra I i applause ol this audi ence that the jury, in order to save the culprits, simply denied the exis tence of the fact, although the at tempt at assassination was committed in broad daylight, in the presence of numerous witnesses, and was avowed and explained by the author of the crime herslf. The heroine received an ovation as she left the court room; J there was a riot; pistol-shots were ex changed between the crowd and the police, several persons were wounded, and one was killed. Vera disappear ed, and she was supposed to have been carried off by the police and to be on her way to the mines of Oural. Conjecture was rife, and the Contin ental press vied in strange revelations or in equally strange reliections upon the moral decomjnisition of an Empire, where a negative verdict in the teeth of affirmative evidence, apparently without a single extenuating circum stance, should have excited universal enthusiasm instead of provoking uni versal reprobation Then came the awakening from this dream of mor bid admiration for a woman who was compared to Charlotte Corday, ready. lika her protoy pe, to sacrifice her life for a principle; to die, if her deatl: would rid tho world of a tyrant. A careful inqnirv into the disorders con sequent upon her acquatial shows them to have leen the work of her political coreligionists, the Nihilists, one of whom, her brother-in-law, Siduratsky, has since committed suicide, through fear of being arrested for the pssassina- tion of a police agent. Vera has not leen sequestrated at all by the author ities, as was alleged; and although no ona knows her whereabouts she has published a letter in several of the foreign newspapers announcing that she is m safety. To-day we have a new version of tne aflair, which, while it is terribly romantic, gives to the crime an en- tireiy uinerent aspect, ane is no longer the angel of purity who, for a girlish imprudence, had been sentenc ed to seven years of imprisonment in a Russian casemate, whence she issued with a hatred for all who pelsecuted her lei low-beings, and a desire to avenge their wrongs. She declared. unon oath, that she had no acquaint ance with the Bogulobow, although she shot his tormentor, but it now an pears that she was his mistress, and that their liaison was of long standing. In a few words this is the storv: In the year 18 1 5, Mile. Vera Zassulitch daugeterof an ex-officer af the Russian Army, who had been exiled, for par ticipation in a plot to assassinate the "' wcu iuciiibiii, I J"1.1"- 'cnae Alexandrovitch Gaz- by General Xrepoff, who was the In- spector-Ueneral ol the province. Aban- doned by him, alter relations of some mouths, she returned to her former admirer, tho student Bogulobow, com municated to him the story of her pre tended wrong, and so working upon his inflammable nature that he follow ed TrcpofT to Warsaw, and horsewhip ped him in the puylic promenade of the .Milortowa Uuca. Consequent rage of the General and arrest ot the stud ent in a factory near St Hetersburg, where, in the disguise of a workman, he was busy with Nihilist propagands. The trial of the young gentleman was short. He avowed his opinions, stated that he and his "brothers were deter, mined to "overthrow the throne and the altar, because they were the in struments of tvrannv, refused to divulge the names of nis accomplices, and, after a preliminary application of the knout, was condemned to bard labor for life, in the fortress of Nerts- cliink. Upon this Vera applied for and audience with irepoff, who wish ed to take advantage agaiu of her un protected condition, "and here quote literally, "ine accused was in the case of legitimate defense as has been public! v proved to the satisfaction of this tribunal and is declared to be not guilty of the crime with which she has been charged.' Trepoff, whose role in the affair has been throughout most odious, supposing himself mor tally wounded, at once made his will leaving 3,000,000 rubles to hisfanulv. The Czar had up to this time believed in he poverty, that is to say. in the honesty.or Ins Lieutenant of Police. and wasgreat shocked at the discovery that his con hence bad been misplac ed, lhe Ueneral was removed from office, and when his victim appeared before the jury, his Majesty expressed the hope that the verdict would be an acquittal. bo ends this affair which caused all St. Petersburg to forget for a moment the graver questons of foreign politics. but the effect produced was painful, as vith similar incidents at Kiew and Moscow, in which students and butch ers were the chief actors, it shows that there is an auarchv and a chaos of ideas throughout this vast Empire, mined bv Nihilism and worked be tween the most arbitrary absolutism which has ever existed and a revolu. tionary movement whose explosion will perhaps sink into nothingness the horriors of 1793 in France. The doc trines of Nihilism are nothing more nor less than a variety ot the frightful principles of tne bkopteni. Just as these mutilate themselves physically in order to exclude themselves from the conditions essentially necessary to existence, in search after an idea which is naught but a grotesque coun terfeit of humanity, so the Nihilists submit to a moral mutilation in order to gratify a savage instinct for dis tructions. Possiblv, with this hatred of all principles of law and order is mingled a leaven of sincere indigna tion against tyranny; but it is not by these monstrous theories that society can bereformed and existing abusescor- reeled. The situatian, both social and political, in Russia will never improve uutil a sentiment of duty licgins to pre vail in every class. Possiblv, the prin ciples of liberalism may become an inevitable experiment, but thi experi ment, may affect the vital organization of the State, if, instead of furnishing new elements of order, it opens the field to ambitions and interests which no scruple will arrest Searching will discover all things; and to discover as well as to remove impurities of the blood, the best blood searcher is Dr. Bull's Blood Mixture. TRULY DISTRESSING. A Tramp of One Thousand Two Hundred Miles by an Aged Couple of 69 Years. ..Iom-JiIi Herald. An aged couple arrived at the posloffice corner last evening between sundown and dark. They wanted to know "how far they would have to follow the track, (referring to the street car track) until they would strike the wagon road to Omaha." The question rather awed the party ad dressed, who immediately became interested in them. The gentleman acted as spokesmau, and when asked stated that his name was Jacob Miller, and the lady at his side was his wife. He gave his age at o and that of his wife G3. He said that they had left their rude home in Philadelphia deter mined to reach the golden shores of California. Unable to pay their passage, they have tramped the entire distance, over twelve hundred miles, and seem as determined to go on as they possibly could have been at the start. I hey say that they bad no assistance whatever in the way of offers to travel by rail, but have been given roonev at divers places along the road, The aged couple received a good dona tion from parties who bad congregated at the corner, and shortly after started for the foot of b rancis street to follow the track of the Bluffs road north to Omaht, and thence to the far west. The aged couple are truly to be pitied. No one can develop the grace of meek neas by listening to a crying baby. Stop its fretfulae by caring the colic with Dr. Bull's Baby Syrup. Stolen Kotes. I had on Sunday night, Hay 26, some money and Botes stolea from my boarding house in Cotton's Addition. One note for $68, signed by David Ewart ; one note for $80, signed by Eli Dillon, and mm for $100, signed by Samuel and David Ewart.

The Sunday edition of lhe Bazoo Is TRIy sought after by ail clxsses of our citizens and the newsbovs have no difficulty in disposing of their supply. i The wheat harvest has already com-1 Bienced in this county. The yield will be greater than for many yean past, croakers to the contrary notwithstanding. A prominent feature of the coming celebration, at this pVace, will be the pro cession of the Knights of Pythias, Knights Templar, Masons and Odd Fellows. Quite a number of our citizens have recently purchased carriages and buggies, and these pleasant evening our streets are thronged with tho: vehicles containing handsome ladies and pleasant-faced, light- tearted children. Journal: Mr. Ed. G. Ford, foreman of the Srdalia machine shops of lhe M., K. & T. railroad, gave us a pleasant call last Monday. Mr. Ford is a very intelligent young gentleman, of fine business attain ments, and a pleasant person to converse with. "The extensive disagreement which ex ists among conscientious and intelligent people on important subjects," is the title f the morning discourse in th Presbyter ian church to day. The theme for the evening will be: "The successful fishing ex cursion." All the old teachers in the public kIiooIs have been re-elected for the ensuing year, except Mrs. Neet and Miss Til lie Angleman; Miss Flora Zdl and Miss Woolsey succeeding them. A new grade has been established, with Miss Brown as teacher. It is higher than any taught last term. Warrensbnrg Journal, 31st ulL: Mrs. Thomas Wood, of Sedalia, has been in the city during the past two weeks with her son. who is under the treatment of Dr. Cutler for curvature of the spine (Potls'a disease.) The little fellow has become terribly de formed and helpless. His lower extremi ties have been completely paralyzed and useless for the past three year. The doctor is using a new process for the treatment of these deformities, invented by the famous American surgeon, Dr. Sawyer, of New York, which consists of applying a solid plaster of Paris case or jtcket, from the hips to the arm-pits. It is a simple bat ingenious annliance. and if a case can be seen before the disease has progressed too - - s a far, all deformity can be prevented. Dr. Sawyer has pnblished a record of over five hundred cases successfully treated by this method within the last two years. It is said the day of hunchbacks is past. This, we believe, is the first case in central Mis souri which has been treated by this new method. irreight Train Off tba Track. Freieht train No. 9 coming south' ditched three cars of ice three miles north of Fayette yesterday afternoon, delaying the passenger train coming south, which did not arrive at Sedalia natil about one o'clock this morning. The accident was caused by a brake beam falling on the track. The multiplication of poisoa gtrau is diaeaaea of the blood m exceedingly rapid, and if unchecked vitiates all the blood of the body.

The Bazoo could publish long list of domiciles that have been entered in the night during the past month and more, but xs the aiiflerers all know, it would be only a waste ot space. The rob. Iiew are apparently enterprising gentlemen, and have no fear of arrest at all. They enter a house leisurely ami cooiy, go . through the old man's pKJttets, take hisTn; Mtl;:nn;, Gm. Sawtter.'j. T. large bills and watch, after leaving him his nickliH for drinks, and then feel under the - ... . -t i i f i I piuow, u seen ...c."..r w ish enough to dUcouimivIe the thief by any j . IT .1 - TM- . I attempt at ni.nng in.ng. breaker then departs a calmly xs he came, and returns to his home without trouble or molestation. No effort is made to discover the whereabouts of these enterpn-ing gentry, and they aeem to have their own way. A citizen, either one or another, is robbed of a night, as a matter of course, and he taken the matter as philosophically as he can. In fact he is supposed to put it down in his business ledger ai so much loss, and then proceed with liM routine of work. And in tne meantime ine inieve walk about the streets in broad day light, apparently with no outside means of livelihood, for what man wants to work, when he can steal thirty or forty dollars every night, with impunity ; and . .. . I and they probably employ the leisure of the warm bright afternoon, in watching the surroundings of eoae new house that they propose entering, and perchance they eater into a desultory conversation with the col ored housemaids, or even the matron of the establishment, as rerards the easiest mode of access. The Bazoo wonld like to see one of these successful thieves, and if be. or any one of his gang, will call at this office this afternoon, at five o'clock, he will hear of something to his advantage. There has been no burglary for the past few nights, strange to relate, although an at tempt was made to CRter Mr. Ed. Goodwin's house on Thursday night. However, one miss in a dotes wdl not hurt a man in his business. These burglars must have cleared about two thousand dollars lately ; more than most persons can make in an ordinary legitimate busiaen, in that space of time. Please give as a friendly call this af leraoon at five, geatleaeB, ia order that we may congratulate yon upon your unvarying sue can ia yoar pecaliar line of bBsiaess. The bead boas thief will probably read this article within evht hoars after it In written. and, at wan said, if he will step ap to the oCet, we will writ him a complisneatary personal paragraph.
