From . became her legal guardian and curator. what we can learn Mr. Whitmer, the custo dian of the book, was one of the three living witnesses to the discovery of the gold plates from which it is asserted that the book was translated by Joseph Smith, through the medium of a pair of rock spectacles: that each inscription orc7pl.er, nVthe nlatea was a sentence, and that the plates were in the shape of a tablet, one half of which were sealed ; that after tlie - . f plates that wereojened had been translated an angel, guide to Joseph, Mr. Whitmer terms the spiritual visitant, came and took the tablet and when he returns the scaled plates will be opened and the world will then learn the commands of the son of Mary. The work came into Mr. VV. h;inds l....l, Mr rvmbrr. wl.n was t. ....ami. ensis of the prophet, and who supervised . the printing of the Book of Mormon, re serving the manuscript, and it can be seen that several of the pages have been cut. so that the printers could seethe copy in what is known to the craft as ''takes." Mr. Whitmer being one of the witnesses, Mr. Cowdery thought that he was the proper custodian, as did John Whitmer, brother of David, who was secretary of the church at Far West, and one of the twelve witnesses i as to its validity.

And m the Book j r t .1 .-- , i. .,.: creed, after declaring that the language of the marriage ceremony should require them to promise to keep themselves "wholly for each other and from all others during your lives," it avers, as follows : "Inasmuch as the Church of Christ has been reproached with tbecrime of fornication and polygamy, we declare that we believe that one roan should have one wife, and one woman but one husband, except in case of death, when either is at liberty to marry again. That is the belief that Mr. Whitmer still 4 . 1 . p . - clings to, and it was doubtless for fear that something might be done to the origins record, either to interpolate it or strike out such passages as the above, has caused him to watch with a jealous eye every move made bv the Elders of the Utah church.

He don't preach there any more. He had a call. It was before the wise men and the elders ot the church in council assembled, and presided over by ' THE BOSS DEACON You see there were charges azainst Mr. Meiggs of "conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman." And this is the wav these charges came to be preferred When this pedagogue n.ifolded his rich store of knowledge to the youth of Hazel nill, a few years ago, Miss Mary Cornwall, the step-daughter of Ham, was one of his pupils. Meiggs became interested in hen and devoted himself with so much energy that, He "tansht o wvll lie leanieii to reail himself.' At all events, it is alleged a fellow-feeling made him wondrous kind, and that wherever Mary Tent, that Meiggs wa sure to go.

Yours, truly. A. McDonald. Mr. McDonald, you've strucK the right man. And we take our pen in hand to tell you right orf. We are sorry to hear that you are out of meat, for it is a good thing to have in the family ; but if you can't have meat, you may have fish. It is lucky you sent your postal can! to us, sir. We have been in the fih business for lorty yetrs. and never missed a bite. You forgot, dear ir, to state the kind of t t . t. - . . r I un you wanieu.

The right mode of procedure to get whales is to buy a ship and go up into the Arctic ocean and harpoon em. You could return to Xew York and drive 'eai over land to the Osage. But perhaps you would prefer mackeral. They come in kitts. They are very whole some, and yon can use the bones for tooth picks. The mackeral Is smaller than a whale, hut they've a heap more intelligent. Then there's the codfish. They are very fine fish, too, Mr. McDonald. They come in boxes. One codfish ball will produce more thirst and satisfaction in a family than anything we know of, unless it is a high fever. Then, again, there's the ahark. I think sharks would do well in the 0age. They are a very healthy fish, and nobody ever heard of a shark having the rheumatic yet. The best way to catch sharks is to go to Jefferson City when the legislature meets. The tadpole is also a kimt of fish, Mr. McDonald, but they don't seem to do well in this country. The last crop was "rooind intircly." To tell the truth, Mr. McDonald, the right way to get fish spawn lor lhe Osage is lo write to your congressman, Hon. T.T. Crittenden.

He said hut very little, and to the Maishal's inquiries made but few re plies. He was then taken to the police office and searched. t Then lhe Marshal told him what he was arrested for and asked him if he would be willing to accompany him on Monday. After this lhe Marshal said : "Unger, you didn't treat me exactly square when you left. You run off without paying me lhat fine." To this Unger made no reply. He was then aked about HIS SI.HTKR, and he requestetl that she be informed of his arrest. Tlie "darbies' were then slipped over his wrists, ami he was consigned to a cell. .MARSHAL MURrilY's JJTORV.

There he put the team in a stable, and left orders that they should be well taken care of. After this they took the train and departed for the West to grow np with the country. They were traced to Kvansville, Ind., where they were registered as man and wife. The balance of the information came lo Pembroke in the manner that we have described. ANOTHEK FOBr.KKV.

Itieodore IJavies iThomttson was seated next to his father, ami also facing the lather ami 1 m m m. - - hi opposite. The ariruments had leen made, the evidence seemed ! strong against the defeudant, the jury ! was about to retue. and the dense silence with which the progress of the case had been watched by the assembly of friends to both parties, was even more strained as the faces of the two 1 twelves were scanned to iudfe of their ,robabIe decision. At that moment a commotion half way down the court f room turned all eves thither. Young . Philip Thompson "Davies and Philip ThoniDson. Jr.. who was nominated h aC fr Conifress to-day. and was then Count v Attorney of Mercer, had been talkini? earnestly beside the stove, on the west side of the room, as the case C7 ' .,s nearimr it end.

The andieaea, too familiar with what Is certain to follow when pistols are drawn ia say part fof Kentucky, dropped :u one man behind benches. Judge Wieklitfe another honored Keutuckv name rose and isbouted a warning, but with no effect. Shot after shot followed in such quick succession that nil was over almost before his voice could be heard. Young Theodore Davie?, his face it has been described to me, white, even beyond description, and fiercely set, stood over the dead body of his father. The elder Thorn pon was be hind a Kst on the left of him as he stood ; Theodore Thompson behind a M)t to the riht and Philip Thomp- ?n, Jr.. b.ick of him. bv the door. Their three pi-tols emptied bullet after bullet toiViird him. but he still escaped harm. Slowly he fired .'hot after shot in return, turning a third around each tiuit; a- rai.-ed the ham mer, until the .-ix loads were gone. Kach bullet lodged in the posts be hind which were the other two, or in the jamb of the door to the vestibule. Then he reached down, took the heavy ,(olt from hi- dad father's nerveless gra-p, and again, with uiarveilou leiiU'raiioii mid precision, emptied it.- six load in succession, turning, as before, a third around toward each opjMineij! as he fired. Each shot bulged it-i'lt in the heavy timbers. Neither ol the Thniiuwous was hit. and lie himself stood unwounded. Then he snapjied the weapon nce or twice, unmindful tha: its cartridges were useless, and then he hacked slowly toward the door, .-till a target as he moved for two fnsh ni-tols in the hands of the two befere him. It was afterward urged that the Thomp sons must each have been armed with two or more weapons when they entered the court. The number of shots fired would prvethis. As he reached the vestibule door Theodore Davie turned, Philip Thompson. Jr., in front of him. and noth moved out into the open air. Lying at the foot of the steps was tlie dead body of his younger brother. Philip. The first shot heard had been fatal to the Imv he was not 2D yet and he plunged forward like a log out of the door as the bullet found its way to Ids heart. The aim had been strangely true for Imth the elder and the younger Da vies. The boy had lieen wild and rockier, but the elder brother had nologizr-d for the youngei s faults, had protected him oftime from punishment, and loved and felt of his heart. It did not beat. and the youii"; man. hitherto almost ; calm in hi- desperate light, ruse with , the o'ead UvV pi-tol, not one load dischariii d. in his hait.t and rushed II 1 Tl V ; "po" Philip Thompson. I-or a mo- :.....! ... Ji.,llr.,l k.n..l I... ...I f m- 'ut;iui 1.7 nuuii , turiouslv, neither using lus weapon. Then the elder Thomiwon, who had jnmiicit th rough a wiuuow ot the court mim, cartying sash and glass with him. came around the corner of the house, iistol in hand, Theodore shook himself loose, moved as before slowly up tlie street, but not firing, and was erhajs a hundred teet from the court house door when a heavy vou-iir man ten. 1 nere was now no one to return the Tnompsons fire, and his friend-, picked him up. unassailedv and carried him U a room over a store near by. There he died that af'eruoon. calm and steadfast to the close. I think you will call him a hero when you have heard all the story I have to tell. When vonng Theodore Davies was borne, wounded to death, to the room hard bv. he sent for his mother I 1 . . 1 .1. I. . 1 "u youiigesi uruiuer, rugeue, a uoy in jackets. When fhey reached hint v evident that his time was but snort ; nut, taxing tne uov s nana, ne matte him promise that he wouiu pur.-ue the he quarrel no further. It has often the fashion in Kentucky been hk for the surviving members of a familv, after one of those bloody affrays, to declare a vendetta against those of the other side. In one case, that of the Hills aud Evanses, in the neighbor ing county of Gar.-ard, the original bloody quarrel began fifty years ago, and since then it has been estimated that sixty persons have been killed relatives, more or less distant, of the two men who fought in 1826. The dying man had steadily refused to be placed on a bed, for, he said the fast-flowing blood could do harm to the bare floor. He turned to a friend j m tj 01 the Thompsons, who had assisted m bringing mm in, sent worn to tnera that he bore them no ill will, and then drew from his pocket a closely written paper, read it slowly and thoughtfully through, called for a lighted match and set tire to it, holding it ia bis hand until consumed almost to the last ash. The paper, I have since been told by the surviving son. was a statement drawn up the night before by Theodore Davies, Sr., and intrusted to the young Theodore, prophesying exactly what happened in the court room that day. and giving proofs that led the old man to believe that the Thompsons had arranged a detailed plan to murder him aud hit two sons if the verdict promised to go against the defendant. That document, as represented, would have gone far to ward convicting the Thompsons of deliberate murder, and if it was as represented, you will agree with me that the dviur victim's act in destroy ing it was that noble of a spirit. Aminis ter had reached the room ; Theodore talked with him feebly, bade Rao t her and brother good by and was dead. The Thompsons were acquitted on the plea of self-defence, and, aa you have seen, one of them was to-day nominated to represent his distrct in the governing body of the nation. Mr. Beecher MwnaKleratood. Vinrinia, New, Chroniele. 'I acknowledge being drunk, J udge, ami making disturbances. A woman can't live like an oyster in a shell. One might as well be buried. Beecher was saying the other night that lots of people' were going 'rouud dead as dour nails, and not buried. When I heard about that remark I thought it applied to me. and so I coiiclwled I'd liven up. I guess the boys thought I was a lively corpse when I started ia on the win dows. People wou't charge me with being dead, if I can help it. I've been about as dead as they make 'ess for twonoatas,but I gneml'm all right now.
