SOME colored gentlemen were playing poker down in a Georgia village a few days ago , and the betting was livclie than the public has been generally won to consider the habit of the colored clc incnt. A lot of hands had just beet paid off for the month and they were pretty flush. The dealer wrung in a col < deck , and the pot rose to the comforta ble dimensions of $50.- The dealer was about to rake it in triumphantly on a royal flush , when the gentleman who had shown down four nines in one ham added another hand containing a bowie knife. The royal flush was instantly re inforced with a pistol , while the gen tleman with four nines and the knife was backed by all the other players. The dealer was a good shot , and he laic out all five of the other players so effect ually that they were colder than the deck of which they were the indirect victims. The skillful manipulator oi cards and pistol escaped with the pot but is pursued by the entire neighbor hood with the pleasing prospect of a lynching when caught. This little in cident should have a tendency to dis courage the game of draw. Topics. THE petit jury has long since become a reproach and a disgrace to this enlight ened country and age. If there is any thing in all creation about which even the Almighty himself is uncertain it is , what will be the verdict of a petit jury. And as the motives ( ? ) which moved the jurors to acquit Short of the at tempted assassination of Phelan , become public , the system as it now applies will be held in contempt more lofty than ever. As illustrative of the line of ar gument which seems to have the strong est hold on the average juror in deter mining the innocence or guilt of an ac cused fellow creature , let us mention a few of these "motives" given by jurors in the Short-Phelan case. One juror had a sick wife , another a sick child , while another peradventure felt a little indisposed himself , and the most of them objected to remaining in the jury room over night , and thus highly appreciating the responsibilities of their office , they patched up an outrageous verdict so that they could get home. The aver age Hottentot's conception of justice would hold a fellow man's life dearer than such "intelligent' ' American jurors. THE people who make fool speeches and those who write fool letters are coming to grief at a great rate. James Blackburn , a brother of the Senator from Kentucky , has had his appoint ment as Internal Revenue Collector for the Lexington district revoked in consequence of the publication of a let ter written to his wife at the beginning of the war , in which he declares he wants to see Union blood deep enough for his horse to swim in. The late de velopments in the letter writing line do much to confirm the wisdom of the late Jim Fisk's advice to one of his friends , never to write , but to send if he wanted to give any instructions. Letters have a way of turning up at most importune moments and undoing the ambitions of a lifetime. JUDGE STEWART , of Maryland , in his recent charge to the inquest of grand jurors on the subject of gambling , said : 'The vice seems to be one inherent in our nature , and it will probably contin ue until the people , are educated up to the point that raffles at fairs will be considered an evil to be frowned upon , and chances in holiday presents as a thing to be avoided. The grosser forms of this vice arc liable to punishment , and when the business of gaming is car ried on in violation of law the duty lo society requires that the offence should not be lightly passed over , but should be prosecuted. " This is said to be the first instance in Baltimore in which the ; rand jury has been charged upon this subject , which more particularly affects the raffles at church fairs. IT'S amusing for an editor , when so liciting to hear a man sa } * , : 'It doesn't pay to advertise. " Why does this man put out a sign ? That's advertising. Why does he obstruct the pavement in front of his store with samples of the goods he sells ? That's advertising , too. Why does he daub the head of a mack erel barrel or dry goods box with the words , "AlL oUr gOods chEep , " and stick it up in a keg of beans or a pile of calico in his store ? " Exchange. A CORRESPONDENT of the Philadel phia Times in writing to that journal from Salt Lake City speaks of the de cay of Mormonism ; and of the revolu tion iu Utah that is sweeping polygamy away ; about the Mormon leaders being in prison , and the enforcement of the Edmunds law. THE St Joseph Gazette says the sur prised democrats of the thirty-fourth Dlinois district , instead of contesting Weaver's election , should cat jjrass for a season and then go and catch pleuro- pneumonia. They can't do it. That disease is confined to cattle , and asses arc exempt. EVERYBODY GO TO FOR Studebaker and Moline WAQONS , ARBED WIRE , JOHN DEERE FLOWS , STOVES , TINWARE , HARDWARE , Etc.
