WEST GOODWIN. During August there arrived in this country 50,508 immigrants. Newspaper poultry is largely of the Hancock variety, just now. A daughter of (Jen. Rosencrans took the black veil at the Brown coun ty, Ohio, convent. General Daniel Sickles lieing sere naded at the Brevoort house. New York, responded in a speech declaring for Hancock. There is something in roj-al blood after all. The Prince of Wales in sists upon paying tor the boxes at the London theatres used by him, this lie ing the first authenticated instance of a person refusing to be a deadhead. The superintendents of four lines of steamboat packets telegraph from Memphis to Cincinnati to say that all classes of laborers cau find ready em ployment at that point. Tncy say : ''Plenty of work and big pay. Want at least 5,000 men ; boats can not get enough men at 560 per mouth." Bob Ingersoll, the iutidsl, wauts to give $2,000 toward a republican cam' paign fund. Bob can very appropri ately speud money thai he ha made in reviling Christ aud the Bible by striving to elect a man who has broken most of the commands of Christ, Moses and the Bible. There seems to be more glory in this campaign for Roscoe Coukling than for any man engaged in it upon the republican side. His enemies are at hia feet offering incense, and he is tail of all disdain, merely tolerating their presence. His is one great pariy trinmnh of the vear. mr - i- i i II j jnanne aisasters nave oeeu appall ingly frequent this year. The author ities, however, are taicing energetic measures to dimmish the perils oi ocean travel. It is highly gratifying to notice that they have fined Capt. Young, of the lost Narragansett, $100. Decisive action of this sort will even tually make ocean steamers as safe as a one horse street car. It is indeed a sad commentary on our boasted civilization to know that thousands are being daily duped by clairvoyants or so-called fortuue tellers. Truly, it doth seem more like the dark ages to find so many who think their destiny is irretrievably linked with the vagaries of a greasy ohl pack oi shuffled cards. This in a great degree is traceable to the pernicious use of the yellow-backed literature. At Heopstown, 111., a very fine skeleton of a mastodon has been found m a peat bed on the farm of John Guingrich. The tusks are nine feet long, twenty-six inches in circumfer ence and weighs 175 pounds each. The lower jaw bone is three feet in length and well preserved. The teeth are all perfect, of dark pearl color, twenty-one inches in circumference and weighs eight pounds. The bones are only three feet below the surface. The name of Hancock is first on the declaration ef independence. The name of Hancock is first in the hearts of all true democrats. The name ot Hanccck is first in the hearts of all independent Ameri can citizens. The name of Hancock is the name that will sweep the country from one end to the other. Never has a nomination fallen on a country so favorably. Dr. L. McLean, of Brooklyn, has solemnly coudemned the milk used in the matutinal coffee and the Hesperian tea of that city as so much cold pisen. He has proved that one-third of the cows supplying the milk consumed in Brooklyn are sick with pleuro-pueu-monia, consumption, inflammation of the pleura and other lung diseases. This is a cheerful showing for the peo ple who have been absorbing con sumption and the other contents of Pandora's box into their systems for months back, and it is supposed that they will make things exceedingly in teresting for tht board of health when they gather the full significance of the doctor's statement A boy only eleven years old has been sentenced to death in Culloden, Ga.

Sed VOLUME XI f. FANATICISM. Something About Superstition Among the Colored People of the Southern States. Mutilating Corpses and Playing Cards Over the Rifled Graves to Got a "Charm.''

When positively refused, they placed a guard at his door ami told him not to come out, an they did not wish to hurl him.

The prisoners, when arrested, separately confessed THE CHIMB, and each told about the s-one story. Etch was tken to the graves separately and each Minled out the graves they hud on ed. The prisoners were then taken before a tuaciAtrnle who, upon their full confes sion, committed U-.ein to jail. Thecitizena l had the m.Uter in baud had great dif ficulty in protecting the prisoners until they were lodged in and lor several days afterward .the Hhenffand citizens of Vernon feared something like what 1ms now happened, but all seems to have lie come quiet. The people afterward opened and examined the graves. One in which a mn had been buried ab -til thirty-five years had Ueen dug out to the bottom, and the decayed bones were mixed with the dirt to the lop. and sme of them were found out of the grave. The negroes iiaid they did not take any of them because they. were too much decayed. The other was that of a Mrs. Tom' l'oe, who had fccn buried tlHMit tiro years.

I hese bone are now in p-sses-ion of Sheriff Lacy, and ara said not to belong to the same human hand. It is believed that several other graves have been dug into. The graveyard where most of the digging had been done is at or near Poplar Spring church in the southwest cor ner of this county, and all the graves mo letted are the graves of white fieople. The cause of this strange conduct, as related by the negroes themselves, is as follows : Dur ing November and December last a negro by the name of Jerry Vaughn, from Miss, issippi, staid among them, and cold them rights and r;ceipts for working charms and Informing miracles.

The professor vanished from the tip of her parasol. Violet went ou with her dressing. She rolled back her golden hair and stuck a little cherry bow therein because Jack liked it. He fancied, too, a certain blue dress and velvet waist-piece ; so she would wear them that day. She knew just what pleased him. so she had him at a disadvantage, and could be as irresisti ble and provoking as she choose.

"The wretch !" thought Violet. "1 will never make up with him now never." "You said that before," innocently observed the professor. "I didn't mean it then." "Oh !" "But I do now. I hate him."

It is the object of those interested, to give every one of moderate means a chance to enjoy the benefits derived from the Spriugs, at a cost but little above what it would be to stay at home, for a few weeks or mouths during the heat of the sum mer months. Therefore, the following induce ment is offered to a limited number of applicants: The most desirable, beau tiful aud valuable portion, consisting of about forty acres has been laid off in lots aud streets withiu a few hun dred yards of all the springs, baths and beautiful parks or groves.
