8 LONDON. He Tichbome Case Again the Sen sation of the Day. The Vienna Exposition—The Atlantic Cables —Mr. Lawrence Oliphant. Blacready—The Actor of tlie Present Pay. From Our Own Correspondent. ■ Xosnos, May 1,1873. uchbobse! TionroEKE!. hohbobke ! Would you know, this May day, the darling of the populace; the hero of the country-house, of the shop, the stable, the hall? It is none other (than the great claimant to the Tichhorne es tates,—“ Sir Bogor,” or Don Castro, or Arthur Orton, as the end may show. Statesmen, war riors, priests, authors, artists, and even actors, (shrink before the bulky form of the heavy irowed man who every afternoon moves through Bn enthusiastic multitude to his carriage, fresh Irom the stage in his trial for perjury. English Judges are punctilious as to the comments upon ■undecided cases, and it is amusing to note how (every writer throughout the landthalances his phrases as ho treats of the Tichhorne trial; glut nothing I can say at Chicago can injure him; eo I observe, emphatically, that this big, coarse pet of the, crowd. Is a perjurer, and a particularly evil-minded, unscrupulous scoundrel. He has destroyed the. happiness of an innocent lady, '%nd hashed with a malice that doubles the guilt of bialies. But listen to the shouts of “Hooray! ‘Hooray! Bravo! Bravo!" from the mass of well dressed people in Westminster Palace-yard this afternoon 1 r Watch how slowly the neat little brougham threads its line through the hoarse and .excited., throngs! Either they or 1 must, he . duped. Oddly does this un precedented cause illustrate the tact that the press arid the public are sometimes strange ly at issue. Thera is not, I believe, one news paper in the United Kingdom which sympathizes with the defendant; and yet lam certain that, in every large town in England, his sympathizers are in the majority. The reasons are various,— the one which weighs most being the fact that Xady Tichhorne declared him to be her son. That idle was a weak, half-crazed old lady, with strong determination to find her son somehow, weighs nothing with them. “ Oughtn't his own mother to know ?" Other minds picture him as contending single-handed against a combined host of aristocratic enemies, and. the ques tion of his guilt ia forgotten in consideration of the inequality of the straggle. , Meanwhile, the reports of the proceedings cover the pages of the newspapers, to the exclusion of almost everything but advertisements. People not Tichhome-mad are in angry disgust. All their favorite bits of reading are gone. No re views or fine-art notices f criticisms upon the opera and the drama reduced to the briefest record; letters from New York, Vienna, Paris, and Madrid ignominionslytlirowninto the waste paper basket. But the majority prefer the trial, and the sale of the morning papers is said to be higher at the present moment than at anyperiod since the war. THE VIENNA EXPOSITION attracts people by its manifold novelties; but they are checked again by the difficulties of the transit. Excursion-trips are being prepared, and prices are made as low as will admit of a profit,' but the miseries of tho journey will prevent any thing like a rash. - Later on, the accounts of the special correspondents may possibly excite cu riosity, and • people with money to spare may be fidgetty until they go; but, up to this time, little movement is to be seen. The gath ering of newspaper correspondents in the Aus trian capital is unique. May no violent com motion of Katnre he tho consequence! Ter rible to think of, a Times bewailing its Bussell, a Daily Heios its Forbes, a New York Herald its Yates, a Telegraph its Kingston! Yet so ardent is the aspiration for fame, that probably not one of those sons of genius (unless it was Bnssell) would object to risk an earthquake if only he could have tho cbanco of being thrown up near a telegraph-station. THE ATLANTIC CABLES have so vexed our souls, of late, that, at mo ments, we hare wished there was no such thing ■ at all i Meetings, intrigues, plots, gambling, “bulling”and “bearing” have distracted the public mind, until universal distrust has been sown. People shrug their shoulders as they hear of daws in this cable and defects in that. To-day we were to send messages at Ss. a word; it is now to beds. The prime mover, tHe centre of the whole machine, is still Cyrus Field. It la now clear that he has been the enemy of low charges all through, and that, in fact, he has humbugged the English press unmercifully. No one laughs more at the result than he does. Mr. Field has not given up the Exeter Hall “ stop ” altogether, though he plays it less frequently. His conversation is directed, I regret to . say, rather .to expositions of Ins boundless wealth, and to detailed accounts of his family arrangements, than to the “ spread of the Gospel,” which once shared the thoughts of his leisure. But he Jxas also his il serious ” connec tions. Though this ingenious speculator wears the outward semblance of extraordinary success, come think the trunk is not in all its parts very firm. W© shall see. Especially shall we note the progress of ME. EAWEEKCE OLXPnANT*B MISSION. Before this letter reaches Chicago, Oliphaut wffl be in Newfoundland, striving to procure an admission of the right of tho new DXBKCT CABLE COMPANY to put down their cable on the Newfoundland coast.. The claim put forward by Mr. Field and his friends to a monopoly of the coast, is to be tested. Mr. Oliphaut has had a carious ex perience. I am told he possesses peculiar ad vantages for a delicate negotiation; hut for years ..ho has been a puzzle. I remember him with the Earl of Elgin, and with a diplomatic ca reer before him which was full of promise; then he was a newspaper-correspondent; then in Par liament and in office; and then be suddenly disappeared from Europe to join one Harris,who was establishing an ideal society in the New. World. After sojourning with the mysterious Harris for a few years, he again appeared in London, having returned, it was said, to correct the proofs of an eccentric novel which was to be published in Blackwood's Magazine . A little later, the war between France and Germany broke out; and the next we heard of Mr. Oli ph&nt was, that he was acting as the sjiecial cor respondent. of the Times at Bordeaux. Removing to Paris, he continued, up to about three weeks since, to correspond with the Times. With his peculiar views of existing civilization, you would suppose such a man wonldbe the reverse of Conservative in his comments upon the chang ing aspect of affairs in France. But you would be wrong. The European press has not a bit terer enemy to Republicanism than Mr. Law rence Oliphont,—the convert to a dreamy So cialist scheme of a Yankee, —a half Spiritualist, half ’cute man of business. All the sarcasm and ridicule at his command have been poured by Mr. Oliphant upon the heads of the French men who set before themselves the release of their country from the burden of priestly and despotic domination. Through the Times, lie ba« sought to make the name of a Republican abhorred; and to such an ex treme hn* he carried his hatred, that the con trast between tho Paris correspondence of the Times and the leading articles of the Times had become a topic of frequent remark. A short time ago, Mr Oliphant married, and the news was told that tbe newly-wedded couple intended to wipe the dust of Europe from their feet and to fix their abode in tbe distant regions of the delectable and philosophic Harris. It appears, however, that Hr. Oliphant stops at Newfound land on his way, to do the stroke of work to which I have referred. I heartily trust he may succeed; and perhaps I may add tho expression of a hope that he may remain in his intended retreat, and reconcile there hie theories of Communism for America and Uitramontane ism for Europe. MACBEADT is scarcely remembered by those who are doing honor to his memory. When little more than a boy, I was introduced to him, and he gave mo a seat in his box at the Princess' Theatre, in order that I might witness his representations. Ha was at that time fond of literary society, and in bis rooms were usually to be seen the best critics and the most popular writers. His special favorite was Mr. W. J.. Fox, the cele brated anti-Com-law lecturer, and who was one of the contributors to the Homing Chronicle, and afterwards to the Daily Dews. Approaching him-with veneration, I went to the theatre with the highest of hones. How well I recall the night 1 Iwasa little late, and the play, had begun before I entered the box. It was i“ Macbeth,” and, as 1 got near the box, the thrilling tones of Fanny Kemble, who, as ■ Lady Hacbelh, was l reading the letter from her lord, went through me. Never were such sounds. The rich, deep notes, first heard, produced an indescribable emotion, and, for the rest of the night, I cared for nobody but Fanny Kemble. Strongly aslstrnggled with the feeling,Maoready disappointed me. The harshness of his voice, the raggedness of his passion, his abrupt transitions from rage to grief, were painfuL The next night I saw him in Philip Van Artevelde, when he positively seemed to rave. But I was only a youth, and I sot no store on those impressions. All the gray-hoaded men who go to theatres tell me he was a great actor, and I am bound to be lieve them. .At least X Know that he was a high ly-cultivated man/and, in that respect, very un like , - . , THE ACTOE OP THE PBESEST DAT, . who is remarkable for nothing bo much as hie mental horrenneßß. I have often wondered how an educated, well-read. -mini like Mr. Phelps, regards the society in which at tunes he is necessarily flung. There are exceptions of course, but most actors and actresses whom I know have a singularly, limited range. An actor like Mr. Irving is in the oddest contrast. He is familiar with the literature and art of the past and the present; but those around him have little of either, and their talk ia very frivolous.. One of the strangest things in life is the. union one sometimes sees of _ the dramatic power with seeming stupidity. At .'rehearsals I have talked with actors and actresses abont the play, and have seen pretty clearly that they did not ''understand the thoughts which they would have to express; and suddenly one has gone on to the stage to take his or her part, and then yon could have sworn that all was felt and known. The ges ture, the meaning in the eye, the emphasis, were jnst what were needed. For the moment the Ideal waa attained. But, when yonr artist friend rejoined yon, he or she appeared unconscious as before. Ia it, then, one asks, all trick? Is dramatic impersonation a purely mechanical art, or a natural gift, independent of the intellect altogether? THE cm IN BRIEF. The alarm of fire from Bo£ 324, at 8 o'clock last evening, was occasioned by some children tipping over a lighted oil lamp at No. 156 Peoria street, the residence of Mr. I*. Elliott. Damage, $25. Insured. About 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon a little girl, who resides at 121 Johnson street, and whose name could not be learned, was run over at the corner of Maxwell and Hoisted streets, by an omnibus of the Lumberman's line, and had her left arm badly mangled. Dr. Reynolds at tended her. John Zimmerman, who was burned in the firu at Season & Payne's planing milk on Satur day morning, died in great agony, at S' o'clock yesterday afternoon. He leaves a wife and three children. The Coroner will hold an in quest to-day, at the late residence of the de ceased, No. 16 Burlington street. A melancholy Dane, whose visage bore un mistakable evidences of a recently prolonged debauch,. meandered into the Snpenor Coart Clerk's room, on Saturday, and mumbled forth an inquiry for the “ Major,” who gave ear to his moan. The miserable had learned that morning that the wife whom he had sworn to love and cherish, and whom he had subsequently treated on several occasions to husband-liko at tentions in the ' shape of blackened eyes . and body-bruises, had, by virtue of Gary's decree, landed him high and dry from the troubled sea of matrimonial life apod the shore of born-again bachelors. The >< Majbr"asßuredhim that his information was cor rect, whereupon tbe Dane asked several perti nent questions, such as, Can Igo to see her V* “ Can I shbeak to her ? " “ Can i shtay mit her in der house ? ” " Must I led her go ? ” to all of which the,“Major , 'gave answers whichseemod to intensify the man's misery. He tried to cry, but every atom of liquid in the man's frame was re quired to cool his overheated coppers, and tho tears flowed not. After some good advice from the ‘‘Major” as to how he should behave the next time he found himself bound vinculo matrimonii. he departed a sadder, a lonelier, and, It Is to be hoped, a wiaer man. THIRTEENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT. To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune Bin: At the People's Convention held at Gil man, in the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit, on the 16th inst., under the united call of both Bepub lican and Liberal-Democratic Central Commit tees, A. J. Alexander, of Iroquois County, was chosen as permanent Chairman, and D. L. Mur dock, of Fairhury, as permanent Secretary. Hon. N. J. Pillsbury was nominated by acclama tion as candidate for Circuit Judge, after which the Convention adopted the following resolu tions : Resolved, That, while wo concede that it is Improper to require pledges of candidates for judicial positions jn' regard to particular measures, or upon any specific question actually pending in the courts, we neverthe less hold it to bo wise and prudent to require that they shall be thoroughly imbued with the spirit of free in stitutions, and£that they shall be In hearty sympathy with the general mass of their fellow-dtizenn in their determination to control the monopolies which do now arbitrarily and unjustly dictate the terms upon which the traffic and travel of the country shall be conducted; and 1 we' do hold that only each men should be-elected to Judicial positions as do believe that the legislative and judicial departments of the Government have tho legal right and ought to regu late and control the corporations which do now, or may hereafter, own and operate the public highways of the country. 'Resolved, That-the Hon.' Nathaniel J. Pillsbury, by his action in the Constitutional Convention of 1870, of this State, and his uniform declarations, both public and private, upon the subject of monopolies, and by his uprightness and integrity. in all the relations of life, and by his ability as a lawyer, is entitled to the confidence of the people of this Judi cial Circuit,, and we do cordially commend hi m to the favorable consideration and support of all tiie voters In the circuit, of whatever avocations in life, and without distinction of party. ; Resolved, That the Secretary.of this Convention for ward a copy of these resolutions to each newspaper in this judicial circuit, and respectfully request their -publication,—and also the Chicago dally newspapers. At the County Convention of Grangers held at Pontiac on the 16th inst., to send delegates to the Judicial Convention to he held at Gilman on the 20th inst., on the vote to instruct the dele gates, the vote was almost unanimous for the Hon. N. J. PiUabury for Circuit Judge. THE JUDICIAL ELECTIONS. El Paso, Hi, May 17,1873. To tlu Editor Of The Chicago Tribune : ‘ • Sib : Allow me to say, through the columns of The Tbzbxtne, that nearly all the fanners in this section of the Fifth Supreme Judicial Dis trict are for the re-election of the Hon. 0. B. Lawrence to tho Supreme Bench, because he is an honest man, and has, by the recent decision in the Chicago, Alton & SL Louis Railroad case, proved himself to be such beyond all doubt. In the midst of the outcry of the people against railroads, he dared to do his duty, although he knew it would disappoint the people of the State to decide the law unconstitutional; but he cared not for himself, —was willing to be sacrificed, if necessary, in order that the great bnlwark of our country might be saved, —the Judiciary. Judge Lawrence should and will be supported by almost every intelligent farmer and mechanic in the country. There are, however, a few polit ical dead-beats, whose days are about numbered as politicians, who try to delude the unsuspect ing in the support of the railroad lawyer, Craig. To all such I would commend the recent farmers’ circular of Knox County. The Hon. John Burns, of Lacon, has been here, looking after his chances for the Judge ship of the Twelfth Judicial Circuit, consisting of Woodford, Marshall, Putnam, and Tazewell Counties. The weather is quite pleasant to-day, and apples and cherries are beginning to bloom. ONE-THOUSAND-DOLLAR POLICEMEN. To the suiter of The Chicago Tribune .- Sis': Ought not a salary of SI,OOO a year to secure a sober and intelligent policeman, as well as one who is active and strong ? I ask tbu question in view of the fact that there are men still on the force (in spite of the weeding process of Superintendent Washburn) who seem to possess but one of these qualifications, namely: strength^—and that not uniformly used in the right direction. Are the Police Commissioners of one mind as to what should constitute a good policeman. If they are, let them adopt a set of civil or military service rules, conforming to that standard, for the selection of candidates. Let all policemen be once a month, or quarterly, by such a standard, and it will not then he necessary for the city to advertise, “Wanted, 100 policemen worth SI,OOO each.” Chicago, May 17,1873. * 0. Obituary. Memphis, May 18.—Mark E. Cochran, a lumber merchant and prominent citizen here, died last evening of congestion of the brain. THE WISCONSIN EXCITEMENT, The St, Panl Company’s Eefosal oi More Comments of the Press. From the La Crosse Democrat. By refusing the land-grant, after making so many promises to the Legislature, the St. Paul Company struck the State of Wisconsin a stag gering blow, which it will be a long time recover ing from. It has been from the first a deliberate attempt to rob the State of from $5,000,000 to $12,000,000. It cannot bo looked upon in any other light. , , First—Tho St. Paul Company never intended to build the land-grant rood. ,Sfecond--The St. Paul Company never intended that any other company should build the road, if they could help it. Third— The St. Paul Company intended to fool along until the State should lose the grant en tirely. All these arguments were used before the Legislature, by members and hr newspapers, to convince that body that the St. Paul Company was a fraud. Many were convinced and voted to give the grant to Baldwin. Others were con vinced, but did not daro to vote against the St. Paul Railroad. Every claim made by opponents of the St. Paul Boad at Madison, has proved to be true. And the St. Paul Company stands be fore the people a perjured company, and its officers and attorneys are looked upon as the veriest tricksters, with no honor about them. The Hudson Democrat , whose editor, for some unexplained reason, was an ardent St. Paul Bailroad lobbyist, says: If non-acceptance has, indeed, been determined upon, the execrations of a State ought to, and will, fol low the promise breakers. The Company now claims that it cannot bor row money to build. The Wisconsin says : Boring the discussion. Otis H. Waldo, one of the at torneys of the St. Paul Company, gave public assur ances to the Ballmad Committee, that that Company was willing to take the grant, and able to build the railways. Some think the North Wisconsin Company will get the grant now without a struggle, we do not think so. The St. Paul Company is not dead yet, as will be seen. The A r eios e&ya : A new company la much talked about, and it ia also suggested that an extra session of the Legislature may be called to amend the act, taking off the outside lines required to be built, and putting It within .the reach of a company with moderate capital and resources. The above paragraph means that the St. Paul managers will lay the pipes for the organization of a wild-cat company to accept the grant, and they will go into the Legislature and instruct their tools to vote the grant to the new com* pany, instead of the Baldwin company. Already willing tools of the St. Paul Company have been collected in Milwaukee, to pul up some job on the people. They will do anything under God's heavens to prevent the grant going to ,any company that will build the road, if it is given to the new company organized nnder the wing of the St.'Paul Credit MobUier, sixty days more will expire, and that company will find oat that money is scarce, and the grant will be given up, and then it will bo too late for any company to take it. If a special session of the Legislature is order* ed, at an enormous expense (which expense, by the way,ought to be paid by the St.'Paul Railroad Company), the members should give the grant directly to the North Wisconsin Company, and if tho St. Paul lobbyists come whining around with a new wild*cat company, they should be sent to the Penitentiary as the worst confidence men. If it is a crime to beat a man out of SIOO on the patent tobacco-box game, is it not more of a crime to beat the State out of $10,000,000 on a patent spring land*grantgame ? The Madison Democrat says : Tbe indignation felt in this vicinity toward the Mil waukee Company is very great. It is said by the Milwaukee Hews, that the res ident Directors of Wisconsin are very much mor tified in being overruled by Eastern men. It was a daily boast of these resident lobbyists, while the bill was pending, that the Milwaukee & St. Paul Boad was a Wisconsin institution, while the Northwestern was not. It seems by tho Eastern Directors controlling this* road, tnat while tho track is laid in Wisconsin, it is owned and con trolled out of the State. We presume the resi dent Directors do feel mortified, and it should teach them hereafter to not be too zealous in crowding through legislation. Whenever thin company want any fntnre legislation, let them enter into bonds to carry out the provisions of any bill they ask for. And bo the St Paul Company has given up.the' land-grab that was dedicated to them by tne Leg islative Hailroad Convention assembled at Madi son last winter. This is the second time that company has done the same thing; and if we elect a railroad convention instead of a Legisla ture, next year, they will probably get it again. [Speaking of the charge of the Company that Gov. Washburn was prejudiced against them, the Journal adds:] Yes, the people are beginning to kick against being skinned alive; and uor. Washburn would probably compel the Company to perform what they promised—a thing they never in tended to do. From the Portage Register . 'nils condition of affairs will carry mnch dis appointment to the people of the northwestern part of the State, who hod been made exceed ingly Jubilant over the prospects, and the Mil waukee & St. Paul Company will find it very dif ficult to satisfy the people who havo been so grossly deceived. If the Company did not in tend to build the road, why were its agents so clamorous to obtain the grant ? Many explana tions will be offered, but none of them will bo satisfactory, w© opine. fcThe agents of the Com pany had no right to assume to represent it at Madison, unless they were clothed with authority to do so. It would have been an easy matter to havo convened the Board of Directors and agreed upon what terms they would receive the grant. As it is, the Company will stand in the position of one that has trifled with the State of Wisconsin, and it must redound greatly to its disadvantage. No matter what the facts are ; the Company will have to rest under the suspicion of having obtained the gnmt for the pmpose of defeating the building of the road, and that is a position that it can uly afford to occupy. It will also rest under the suspicion of having-obtained the grant for the purpose of enhancing the value of its stock under the influence of it, and thus enabling certain parties to “ unload” the large amounts they were carrying. It will bo remembered that the stock of the Company immediately advanced from 51 to 60 under the stimulus it received from tbe grant. It would be a bit of desirable information to know who held the stock at 51, and who holds it now. The Chicago & Northwestern will come in for a part of the public censure, for the impression is gen eral that the two companies were “cohootß *’in the affair, at the latter end, under an agreement that the Chicago & Superior Air Line was to he killed off, and a farther agreement that they would cease competition and go in and “pool their earnings.” Circumstances which have re cently transpired give a color of probability to the reports, and cany the conviction that there was no good faith in the matter at all. We shall not he surprised to see a special ses sion of the Legislature called to consider this matter. If so, we shall hope to see such a dis position made of it as will hasten the building of the Chicago Air Line Bailroad, which will have the effect, in some degree, to lessen the damage about to be inflicted on the State by the consoli dation of the Milwaukee & St. Haul and Chicago & Northwestern Boads, by giving tbe public an independent line to Chicago. AFabmeb. It is now authoritatively stated that the St. Paul Railroad Company has refused to accept the St. Croix land-grant on the terms which were agreed to before the Legislature last winter. In view of the fact that the grant conld have been otherwise advantageously disposed of bad not the St. Paul Company made the pledges it did, such an action would seem to be as near a swindle as is usually attained without legal lia bility. What makes the business - more provok ing is the virtual consolidation of the St. Paul and Northwestern Companies, which places Wis consin directly under the heel of a monster monopoly. It is still possible, however, that we may come out all right, but it is unpleasant to see the power which can make everything wrong vested in a single corporation. . From the Madison Journal, Ninety days ago Madison was the scene of an intense struggle. The lobbies were crowded with men from distant parts of the ' State, brought here to influence members of the Legis lature. Excited and angry discussions were held in the hotels, streets, and lobbies, and it is alleged that every known appliance was used to influence votes and secure the- Bt. Croix land-grant. No contest in the history of the State ever produced more excitement than this. Men were vilified, browbeaten, and coaxed, and TUB CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: MONDAY, MAX' 19, 1873. the Land-Grant. From the LaCrosse Republican. Front the Racine Journal. From the Waukesha Freeman, ■when it seemed settled -with a majority it was idle to argue. 1 All • attempts to amend the bill ■were resisted by the successful party. To doubt the good faith of the Milwaukee & St; Paul Company was regarded as an of fense that almost ■ Justified political extermina tion or social banishment. But now the whole scene has changed. In less than sixty days the grant is coolly rejected; no roads are to be built, and men look back to the turmoil of last winter as they would npon-the scenes of a sensational play. But it ought to teach a lesson to the peo ple which' will Sake any future attempts to re peat a similar drama on the same boaras a.Tery expensive undertaking. It cost the State a great many thousand dollars to pass this land-grant bill. The session was prolonged for weeks by the bitter contest." The Increased tax and gen eral burden on the Treasury is, in addition, to the freat detriment to the sections of the State to s opened by the proposed roods. The question is asked why there was such a contest for what is now declined. There are several explanations. One is that the passage of the bill was an immense stock-jobbing operation. The manipulators owned great quantities of Mil waukee & St. Paul stock. It was worth about fifty-one cents on a dollar before the bill passed. After the grant was offered the Company a great ado was made over the value of the land, and the stock went up to fifty-nine or sixty cents. It will be seen how those owning large quantities of the stock could have sold and realized hundreds of thousands of dollars on the rise, and then, just before the grant was rejected, might have sold “short” and made immense sums on the fall of the stock. If this programme was carried but, the Legisla ture was nsed as the mere tool of stock-jobbers. Another explanation is that the Company is opposed to the construction of the proposed road because it would bo a' competing line, and it adopted the dog-in-the-manger policy to pre vent another company from getting the grant. While we deeply tegret that the roads are not to be built, we derive some comfort from the re flection that future Legislatures will profit by the recent lesson, and legislate for the people re gardless of the clamor of the lobby. THE BENDER MURDERS. 12ow the Family Averted Suspicion from Themselves « The Devilish Deeds Which People Passed Unheed ed—Their Reasons for Committing Their Horrid Crimes. Independence, Kan. (May 6), Correspondence of the Leavenworth Commercial. I listened last evening to an in Arresting con versation between Col. York and a number of citizens of this place, upon the aU-absorbinf: topic—theDender murders. One man expressec surprise that Sr. York, who was a shrewd man and used to the ways of the world, would have been so incautious as to enter that human char nel house. The bad character of the family, their disreputable mode of living,—by clair voyance and ■ spiritualism,—and the shot boles bored through their walls, should,have ad monished any man of ordinary prudence that such a place was dangerous to enter, and the Doctor, knowing these facts, should have been the last man to place himself in their power. The Colonel remarked that it was an easy matter to be wise after the truth had been shown. When in search of his brother, be said, he visited the Bender house with a fneud, pre pared to note any suspicions circumstances. He knew the family bore a bad character; he ad dressed numerous questions to them, he scru tinized the hovel vigilantly, and, after this search, be left with the impression on his mind that these people were ignorant of his broth er’s murder. They assumed an air of stolidity and dumbness which diverted all suspicions, and he set them down as an ignorant German fam ily, fossilized with witchcraft and superstition, too besotted to cany out -any act of treachery and lawless violence. “ Did you not see the shot holes ?” one of the company inquired. “ I saw one bullet hole,” the Colonel answered, “ and the old man said that had been there when he moved into the house.” . He further told of the second search that he made, with seventy-five men along. The Bon der house was again visited, and further ques tions put to tho occupants. Other houses were visited, and then the results of the search can vassed. Suspicion fell upon Harness, (now in arrest) hut not one of all the party entertained any idea that tho Benders were a party to the murders. One person thought the county authorities

have shown neglect in prosecuting inquiries while disappearances were of such frequent oc currence. lie apathy of the whole community was a matter ;of standing wonder to tho Colonel “ Look at that woman," Bald ho, “ who was offered an array of knives and pistols for sapper, and whose life was to depend upon the reanlt of spiritual incantations; she fled to a neighborfor shelter, but no complaint was made by this man of the auspicious practices of the family. Some time last winter, three travelers drove up and ordered dinner, offering to pay half a dollar each for a good square meal. They bad but little in the house to offer them, and they didn’t get enough to eat. They demurred to pay ing the fall amount, and qnick as a flash the old man caught one of them aronnd tho neck, and, drawing a long knife, was about to plunge it in his breast. Hia arm was arrested, and a revolver jwinted at his head. Father ana son then rushed into the house, and reappearing with navy revolvers, threatened to kill the whole party. These men drove off,” pursued Coh York, “but they made no complaint of the mur derous attack mads upon them.” The question was asked the Colonel whether he believed the murders were. committed for money or on account of Kate’s diabolism or superstition. Coh York thought that robbery was the object of the murders. Kate was avaricious, and would go to any lengths to get money. That she prompted the murders there was no doubt. When a stranger entered, the spirits would tell whether money was in his possession or not, and on a sign from her, preparations would be made to dispose of the visitors. .But her power of divination frequently failed her, as several of the victims ore known to have been almost penniless. Longchor, the lowa farmer, bad not over S2O; the Illinois soldier, ilcKlnzov, bad borrowed a dollar to pay his way to Parsons; Brown, of Cedar Tale, had • not over SSO; and Dr. York not over half that sum. As a source of in come these murders were. unremnnerstiro. ■Whether they shared in the proceeds of the other property was not known. ’ A great diversity of opinion prevails whether the Banders were acting in concert with a gang,' or whether they prosecuted business on their own hook. Jones, whose body was found in Timm Creek", is supposed to have had S2OO in his possession. . The battered skull and severed wind-pipe point to this family as bis hatchers. Bat it is supposed that Brown was not immolated in these shambles. He started to go to Osage,Mo., riding one horse and leading a second. He was seen on tho road riding in a wagon, accompanied by two men, and It is supposed that ha was mur dered by these persons. If thus he came to his end, they must have been confederates of the Benders, as his body wag found in the orchard by the side of SloCrotty. A painful circum stance attending this murder is that, on his wife setting ont in search of her husband, her horse feU sick, and she stayed three days at Bender’s, lying within one hundred yards of her husband’s mutilated body.

They fled to-escape justice, and have again dawned upon the horizon in this latitude. making People Drunk; by Contract. A Calcutta correspondent of the Dundee Advertiser thus describes a native publican and his establishment;' “In the usual native hat, built of bamboo poles, lined with bamboo mats, and covered with a thatch of coarse grass, dwells a toddy seller, or the publican of the dis trict. Toddyis drawn from oneldnd of palm tree. A hole is made in the tree under the branches, an earthenware pot is slung underneath, and in a few hours a gallon of liquor is collected. As it comes from the tree it is innocnons, bnt when fermented—a process of rapid develop ment—it becomes intoxicating. It presents the appearance of milk and water with a froth like a sonfilee on the top. This toddy seller under takes to make people drnnk by contract; four annas, or sixpence sterling, is the usual price for a strong-headed person. To increase the intoxicating power of the toddy the seller adds the juice of some plants of a deleterious nature. ■\Yehave frequently watched the process. Seated In front of the hut on a mat, the party to be operated on takes the liquid; he very soon pre sents a hilarious appearance, enjoys for a very short time the delights of the excitement, grad ually tumbles over, falls asleep, and awakes the most miserable-looking creature imaginable, forcibly reminding ns, in the wild glare of the eyes of the inmates of a lunatic aaylnm. Drunk enness is the most common cause of insanity in this country.” —The penalty for marrying four women in lowa appears to be three and a half years in the Penitentiary. This is a little lees than one year per woman. “ Even at this rate,” says an ex change, “we should want to seethe women first. MURDER IN KENTUCKY. Interesting Details of an BxttaoriU' nary Crime. MtuaellinUe, Ky., Hay 13, Correepondenee of tie Cin cinnati Gazette. The trial of William Webb, for the murder of Champ S. Beasley in December, 1871, has just concluded, the jury having rendered a verdict of guilty. The details of the murder as developed by the trial have hot been made public. The parties were men of families residing half a mile apart, nine miles from Bussellville. Beasley had a daughter named Bebecca, aged 16, and Webb had a • son named Chris topher Columbus, aged 24, who were en gaged to be married. Beasley’s family ob jected to the marriage on account of “ blood and position, and the girl’s father determined that the marriage should hot take place. This determination was strengthened by the fact that the old man Webb (the prisoner) had made a contract with a family of negroes that his son Columbus and his to-be daughter-in-law should live with them, Bebecca doing the cooking and washing for the negro family. Bebecca was aware of the contract, and had assented to it. On the fatal day, Christmas, 1871, Mr. Beas ley, returning from a hoghunt, found that his danghter had left home and, is he soon learned, had gone to the house of the older Weeb (the prisoner), where the marriage had. been arranged for. He immediately started for his neighbor’s, followed by two or three neighbors, who stopped a few hundred yards from Webb’s house, Beasley saying to them, “ Wait, boys, and I will go ahead and put the thing through in a few minutes.” He- was wholly unarmed. On reaching the .house he signaled, standing" still on the public road, and William George, a Baptist preacher of unenviable standing, responded, and invited Beasley to come in. Ho declined, and asked if his daughter was in the house. There were several ladies in ' the house, including Be becca, and the preacher replied that they were engaged in singing hymns. (Both families be longed to the same Church, and recognized each other as brothers and sisters in the common use of those terms). Christopher Columbus Webb was not in, but his father (the prisoner) was, and upon being informed that Mr. Beasley was at the fence demanding his daughter, Mr. Webb went with Mr. George to the yard fence, Mr. Beasley still remaining outside, who again asked for his daughter. A war of words followed, the details of which were not elicited by the evi dence. It meted a few minutes, Beasley at one time shaking his fist under “ Brother ” Webb’s nose, though an eight-rail fence was between them. - Suddenly Webb wont into the house, return ing in a few moments with a navy pistol, and re sumed with Increased vigor his wrangling. The inmates of the house, had ceased their hymn singing and repaired to the front porch, within thirty feet of the quarrelsome fathers, the would-be bride taking her place coolly among the rest. Beasley (still outside of the fence) was seen to advance upon Webb, talking excitedly, and oblecting to the marriage... Webb was heard to say, “Brother Beasley, don’t you come any further," and immediately the revolver was dis charged, producing a fatal wound in Beasley’s abdomen, from which he died in 21 hours. After ho fell, while weltering in his blood on the pub lic highway, Webb endeavored to shoot a second time, but was prevented from doing so by the preacher, George, though the latter did not go to the prostrate form of the dying member of his own dock. ' ■ Webb and the company, including the mur dered man’s daughter, returned to the house and resumed their psalm-singing, while Beasley’s friends came up on hearing the pistol shot, and carried the dying man to his home. Webb re marked before giving ont another hymn that he didn’t hit him where he aimed to, for he tried to shoot him in tho heart. Beasley made a dying declaration, which was admitted in evidence, with the result above stated. - It is the general opinion hero that the murderer should suffer the severest penalty for the crime for which he has been justly convicted. Columbus Webb did not marry Bebecca Beas ley. Bo is dead, and she is tho wife of another, and a mother. What Herbert Spencer Thinks o( Us, In his discussion of the political bias as a dis turbing element in sociological investigations, Herbert Spencer illustrates one of his points by a reference to this country. The particular point is, that the forms of liberty and the reality of liberty are not necessarily commensurate. He finds sufficient proof of this in the present con dition of the Eastern States, without going back to the early days of California, or even resorting to the contemporaneous West, “ where a white woman is burnt to death for marrying a negro, where secret gangs murder in the night men whose conduct they dislike, where moos stop trains to lynch offending persons contained in them, where the carrying of a revolver is a mat ter of conrse, where judges are intimidated, and tho execution of Justice often impracticable," He merely allndes to these Western practices as showing how intolerably people can be oppressed while nomiually living under free institu tions. Bat at the Bast he finds men sit ting in judgment on their own cases and ap plauded for doing so; justice tainted by gifts; municipalities robbed and misgoverned by the civic servants; financial frauds, the victims of which are principally without remedy; citizens gaining unfair advantages over other citizens by “lobbying in Credit Mobilier briberies;”, a ruling class of . professional politicians, whoso aim is to make money, and whose inter ests are, therefore, by no means Identical with the public interests. “ While the outside form of free government remains,” says Mr. Spencer, “there has grown up withm it a reality which makes government not free. The worship of the appliances to liberty, in place of liberty itself, needs continually ex posing. There is no intrinsic virtue in votes. Tbs possession of Bepresentatives is not in itself a benefit. These are but moans to an end; and the end is the maintenance of those condi tions under which each citizen may carry on bis life without farther hindrances from other citi zens than are involved by their equal claims— the securing to each citizen all such beneficial result! of hia activities as his activities naturally bring.” The Pigeon Business. •From the Winona {Minn.) Republican, Within the past few days large numbers of pigeon-trappers have been coming into the State from Illinois, Wisconsin, and other States east of ns, following up the flocks of pigeons and trapping them for the Eastern markets. It is made a regular matter of business, and a most profitable one, too, if the statements of the •, trappers may be relied upon. How can it bo otherwise, , when it is estimated that a- hundred trappers have gone ont on the Winona & St. Feter Bail road within" the past week, and still they come 1 Kasson appears to bo the chief centre just now, although the hunters scatter along at neighbor ing stations from there os far east as Bochester, striking off into the woods along'tbe Zomhro, over by Fine Island, Oronoco, and vicinity. Wherever the pigeons are there are the trappers gathered together with their wiles, their decoys, and nets, catching the birds by the hundreds and shipping them by the barrel, to tickle the palates of Eastern epicures. From Mr. Knight, the express agent at this place, wo leam that the first shipment of pigeons for the season came east by express, from Easson, last Thursday, the Bth inst., and consisted of ten barrels. Since then tbs ship ments have increased daily, justifying the infer ence that the trappers are doing. a land-office business. On Monday, twenty-five barrels came down; Tuesday, thirty-eight: Wednesday.forty four ; and so it mil probably keep np for several days, until the pigeons fly to fields and (misfor tunes new, only to be followed by the “onward march of civilization.’' The XVine Crop in France. From the Fere Fork Sun. On the nights of the 25th, 26th, and 27th of April, a severe frost ruined the vintage for this year in many parts of France and destroyed the hopes of the wine-growers in a prosperous harvest. At Villefranche, in Beanjolois, the thermome ter sank to four degrees below zero. Not a bud escaped in many places. In the lowlands all the vines were destroyed, bnt on the most elevated of the hill sides, where they were exposed to the wind, the destruction was comparatively slight. The most promising of the vines, those which had been trimmed and were the most advanced, were utterly lost. In this region the apricot trees were also much damaged. At Dijon, in Lower Burgundy, three-quarters of the crop will be lost, owing to this cold snap. The grapes from which the popular Burgundy wines,Chambertin and Cios Tougeot, are pressed, were touched by the frost. In Beaune and Mcursanlt the loss is estimated at from one-third to one-half of the vintage, de pendent, upon the situation of the vineyards. Those in the lowlands, that is in the valleys or far down on the hill-slopes. Buffered most. Some buds were entirely blackened, while oth ers of the same size and apparent hardiness were left untouched by the side of the withered ones. The vines of porous nature were as a rule com pletely destroyed, while those of harder surface mads a better resistance. I" the neighborhood of Lyons and in Langue doc the loss was great. The same result as to tho comparative escape of the more elevated grapevines was observed. ■ In the champagne district some of the vine'. yards will lose from one-half to three-quarters of the annual harvest. It is not at all probable that tbs effects of this diminution of tbs grapo yield Trill be felt in this country. The prices of champagne, burgundy, and claret remain about the samo year after year with ns. Our Trine merchants and import ers already charge prices so' high that there is not much room for any increase ; and as tho hotel and restaurant keepers exact 100 per cent in addition to the Trine merchant’s price, any in crease above rrhat wo aroused to pay would only result in a more limited consumption, for tunately the maximum has been reached in America as far as the prices of wines are con cerned. ....

The wedding of Miss Jennie Butterfield, now the Ylcomtesee do Montauban, took place this morning at the Church of St. Philip de Boole, in the Faubourg St. Honor©, The civil ceremonies had already taken place at Mr. Butterfield's resi dence, and those of to-day ware those that the Church demanded. At noon St. Philip was filled with the friends of the Butterfields and de Mon tauhans, and a few moments after noon the bridal party entered—Mr. Butterfield and the Comtesse de Palikao, the Comte de Palikao and the bride, the groom with his sister, the Comtesse de Brimont, and the rest of the family connection following, who all entered the chancel, seating themselves in the red velvet fateuils reserved for this. purpose. The grand old altar of St. Philip was illuminated in a blaze of wax tapers, while the Archbishop and his abbea in full pontificals stood ready to perform the ceremony. Music such as only can he heard in the cathedrals of the Old World filled in the pauses of the imposing cere monies. Finally, the Holy Sacrament was administered to the bride and groom. After the. ceremonies at the church, a wed ding breakfast took place at Mr. Butterfield's house. The Vicomte do Moniauban comes of a military family, being a son of the Marechalo- Comte do Palikao, as well as Colonel of the Forty-fifth Regiment of Hussars. The floral of ferings of the regiment to the bride wore su perb ; in fact, the house, walls, and stairways were embowered in flowers, chief among them the white lilac and the orange blos som. ' All of the officers of Col. - Mon tauhan's regiment were present at the church, and afterwards at the wedding breakfast. Among the Americans present at the, break fast were Mrs. .Wickham Hoffman' - Mrs. Joseph Biggs, Mrs. Edward Cooper, Mrs. and Miss Willing, of Philadelphia; Mrs. Miner Gib son, of England; the Duchess of Malakoff, the Countess of Floury, and many of the ladies ,of the court of the late' Empire, while the army of France was represented in every degree—thirty of its Generals and four of its Marshals being present. -As we all—like the Grand Duchess— adore les militaires, this wedding seemed a beau ideal of a picturesque wedding. Miss Butter field was dressed in one of Worth's chef d’ceuvres of white satin, etc., whilo the Yiacount, in his beautiful uniform—blue coat and red browsers—- with trailing sword and golden epaulets to - add to his groat beauty, was a picture of a soldier. * Ihc Cincinnati Festival.
