He is a half-breed, his mother being a gipay, and his father, he asserts, a clergyman. He is a tall, stout, respectable-looking man, of about and haa never, so for as known, been ] in prison. He runs a good pasture form, leased by the gang, and well stocked. To bis care all the younger and more valua ble hones stolen in New York and New Jersey, are sent. The writer is assured that at oue time Jake bad sixty stolen hones in bis pastures, ranging in value from 8250 to SI,OOO. Bo has already individually made a fortune, and it is be lieved will shortly return to the old coun try to enjoy the results of his enterprise end industry. He is known among the fancy as “ 240,’’ that being his weight in pounds. Rev. Theodore Dwight Woolscy, cx- President of Yale College, and oue of the most eminent scholars and divines of our country, expresses this opinion: During the war there was such earnest ness and prayer, and heroism, that the whole nation was lifted to a higher tone, and it seemed as if, with victory, a noble career was open to the land. But, now that twice the yean of the war have pass ed, there is such corruption as has never been seen in the nation's history. Corrup tion of public officials, corruption in the patty which was foremost in loyalty daring the war, alliance for party ends with men of known want of principle, a feverish thirst for speculation, an era of crime, a weakening of family feeling and purity— these things are most ominous, and espec ially since they are demoralising in their influence on the best of men. <• An evident revolution of public senti ment is going on in the centre and western sections of the Union. The doctrine of free trade is spreading like wild-fire, and the formers' movement is threatening an earthquake in the west and a total annihi lation of the republican supremacy High tariffs have had their day. Monopolists must go down, and free trade must go up, bearing the Democratic party into power again oa the ware of enlightened public i;, sentiment. The New York Kerning Ac**, says:— In an interview with J. Sutherland, the restanrator, he stated that ahont a year ago General Van Buren called ou him and offered him a good site in the Vienna Ex position building to open a first class res taurant, and told him he ennld make enor mous profits, adding; “We will expect, of course. that you will do something for us in retnn for giving you such a good site." {fatherland answered that he could not areept the proposition. The Baltimore Nan celebrated it* 36th birth day on Saturday last by presenting to each of its subscribers a fax timik of the first number of that paper, issued on the 17th of May, 1887. It is a very small sheet. IS by 22 inches, and by com paring the Sun of to-day with the first | number, it will be seen that it has kept j pare with the march of improvement. Judge Edward Pierrepoet of New York, to whom the President tendered the Bus hian mission, has declined the appointment on account of his professional engagements which are of such a nature now that it is impossible for him to leave the country without great detriment to his clients.

Chairman of the Committee, reported the lollowingresolutioua, which were adopted: Resolved, By the Members of the Bar and Officers of the Court of Carroll countv, that in the demise of our late brother, W, W. Dallas, Esq. the profession has sustained a loss, and society has been deprived of one of its ornaments. Resolved, That the cultivated tastes, varied accomplishments, and enlarged learning of oar deceased brother, fitted him for a career of usefulness and honor ; and that the success which attended his earlier efforts in a neigh boring Stale gave assurance of his capacity to attain eminence in the legal profession ; and that we witnessed with painful smypathy the protracted physical sufferings which prevented him from the exercise of his rare abilities, since he chose Lis home among us, and de prived the profession of his aid and example. Resolved, That we mourn, in common with the large circle of personal friends to whom the society of our late brother was an attrac tion, and a source of improvement as well as delight. ■ Resolved, That we tender to the immediate i family of the deceased our sincere condolence in their great bereavement, and that as a mark of our regard for hia memory we will wear the usual badge of mourning. Resolved, That these resolutions be pre > sented to the Circuit Court for Carroll county, r with the request that they be spread upon tlic minutes of the Court; and further resolved that these proceedings be published in the several newspapers of the county, and that a copy of the proceedings of this meeting be * sent to the (hmily of the deceased. On motion the meeting adjourned. WM. N. HAYDEN, Chairman. Isaac E. Pearson, Jr. Secretary. On the meeting of the Court, Col. Wm. P. Maulaby announced the death of Mr. Dallas, and pronounced the following tribute to his memory: Mat H please the Court .—There has lieen assigned to me, by my professional brethren, the melancholy dutv of announcing to your Honors the death of our late associate, William i Wilkins Dallas, who died on the 6th instant, at his home in this place. He was i>orn in the city of Pittsburg, on the 16th of February, , 1828, and was therefore at his death a little over 60 years of age. He was a son of the late Judge Dallas, of Pittsburg, a grand-son of Alexander James Dallas, one of the most distinguished omamenU.of the early period of this government, and a nephew of George M. Dallas, late Vice President of the United ■ States, and also of the late Judge Wilkins, one of the most distinguished and valued cili sens of Pennsylvania in his day, and for a time a member of the Cabinet Council at Washington. Mr. Dallas enjoyed, in his youth, all the benefits of refined and elegant education, and was bred to the Bar, of which the members of his family had been, for so many years, amongst the most brilliant orna ments. Entering on the practice of our pro fession, and pursuing it for a few years, he gave full promise of rivalling, in the maturity of his powers, any who bad borne his name, and in doing that, it is known to all of us. be would have ascended the highest round of the professional ladder. Seduced from the trod den road of the hard labor of the practicing Lawyer hy the blandishments of wealth, which came to him in copious abundance, in com pany with other charms which naturally, al most irresistably, invited him to luxurious ease, he abandoned bis earliest love, and chose another mode of passing his life. It was passed amidst all the elegancies which education, literary tastes, refined associations, and all the surroundings of wealth, conld sup ply. His home was the abode of all domestic comforts, and of bright and cheerful face*, which attracted troops of friends, who were capable of appreciating the charm of the circle in the centre of which stood he and his, and contributed to that circle a proportion, per haps, of its rainbow hues. For many years he lived thus, giving out to, and taking in from, his friends and associates, brightness and happiness. His disposition and manners were moat kindly and gentlemanly. He wan at all times, and under all circumstances, even the most untoward whichever surrounded him, for to all of us come some clouds laden with more or less of darkness in them, the perfect gentleman. Several years before his death sickness laid its heavy band on him, and • sorely indeed did it press him; but, amidst all • the pains and sufferings which it brought with it, he was always, to his friends, whom be al ways welcomed, the same courteous, kindly, warmhearted gentleman. His physical suffer ings did not extinguish his bright smile of ’ welcome. To bo sure, no living man, if an - allusion to the braised and bleeding heart t wounds which his death has left mav be par doned, was ever surrounded, in all his suffer * ings with gentler, tenderer, and more perpet , imu ministrations. It would indeed be hard for Death himself to wear a grim smile when r be came to make his visit to a bed surrounded by so much of unwearied and unwearying lov ing care. His ghastliness must have relaxed 1 itself in the spectacle of the human warmth 6f love and perfect duty, upon which he was constrained to obtrude himself, by the com mand of the Almighty Master of Life and of Death. Mr. Dallas was not blessed with the privi lege of transmitting to children his name, and the high qualities of intellect, and other char acteristics which he possessed, and at the loss of which each of ns, his associates, cannot . foil to realize that we have lost much of real value to ourselves. But he has left a name, and memory, that will be tenderly borne in mind and heart by all who knew him. In the latter years of his life his love for our proles j sion framed up anew, and be practices it to | an extent, and would have done so more ex tensively, if the disability of disease had not j hindered. At the last he gave the strongest | and highest evidence of the true sou led, right minded, hard sensed, wall balanced, pure | hearted, lawyer, in dyinf the death of an | humble Christian. He seised the Cross of bis I Crucified Lord, and leaning on that, entered, | in meek triumph, the gate of Death, i At its conclusion, Judge Merrick arose and { rend the resolutions which had been adopted I at the meeting of the Members of the Bar and I Officers of the Court, in the morning, and j said that he heartily concurred in all that had just been said by Col. Maalsbr. Judge Hayden said, “TheConrthaslearned with sincere sorrow of the death of Mr. Dal- I las. We concur in all that baa been so ap propriately said of him in the resolations just road, and in the remarks of Judge Manlsby, in announcing to ns the death of our brother. In compliance with the request contained in lias reaataliaD*, and in respect to tike nwoorr of the daeeased, the Court directs the resolu tions to be filed and entered on the minutes rtf its proceedings; and the Court will now Judge Hammond desired to odd a few words, and spoke in the following finding Before the Court adjourns, I .too, desire to j mingle my sorrows with those of the Bench and Bear over the gntre of oor deceased hrotb- | or. It woe my inwfortmie not to have known I f Si ■ 1 *> ; q him over three years, and not to have lived during that short period under the constant influence of his high character. But that time sufficed to win tor him my very warmest friendship and unqualified respect. High-toned, social, liberal, hospitable and intelligent in a rare degree ; refined and pol ished m his tastes both by nature as** culti vation} possessing in a remarkable degree i cn- I versaßonal powers, supported by extensive ; J reading and many opportunities of observa- \ lion ; gifted with a mind capable, as I have ■ hgd occasion to kaow, of comprehending and applying with facility legal principles; char itable to the malts of all .hen, and an outspoken admirer of their virtues and accomplishments; all who minister in this seat of justice must feel most keenly, and deeply deplore, ihe sad event which has deprived them forever of such a friend and brother, and entailed upon this Bench aud Bar so marked a loss. For my self, I mourn the loss of a friend, an in test ing and most estimable gentleman, and a ca pable lawyer. Fri*lay. Mas W.—No. 22, Criminals, State vs. Conrad Bolta, violating Sunday Law.

K.,*a horse belonging to Mr. John Cash, repair boss on the F. and Pa. Line R. R., jumped out of an adjoining lot aud ran on the track in front of the engine down to the bridge over Big Pipe Creek, a distance of two miles. U was thought by all who witnessed the chase that the norsc would run into the bridge and fall through the timbers to the bottom, a dis tance of 36 feet, or lodge on it. But strange to say, at the very edge of the bridge timbers, the horse turned and went down a 30 foot embankment, and at the bottom jumped, as an eye witness described it, over the rip rap wall, a distance of 20 feet into the bottom lands of Mr. Lewis Cash, unhurt and un harmed.

Lynch s|>ort airy ! phaetons. _ Fur the Democratic Advocate. ! Messrs. Editors: —At a meeting of the “Union Bridge Agricultural Club," held j April 12th, 1878, I rend a paper giving a_ short account of some of the Clubs organized in our ! county. A writer in the Ikmttcratir Adrocate, j of the 8d instant, attempt.* to criticise it quiUM | severely. Now, I think it will not be requir | ed or expected of me to answer a com muni- i ; cation from an unknown or concealed adver- j , 1 sary. Nevertheless, I will notice some of his : ' | remarks. In the first place he misquotes me j —puts in my mouth “young bantling/* which ]is tautology.’ os bantling means young. Web- 1 stersays, “bantling;—a young child, nu in- , 1 fnt." He charges me with using it oppro i briouslr, which I think he is not warranted in doing, for whether the “Aloha Farmers* Club*' ' ! is the first or last club in the county it surely i is in its infancy, as it is less than a year old. I , He seems to think that the club of 1817 is , 1 not entitled to the name of Farmers* Club, j because the principal object in its organization i was to enable its members to dispose of their j produce to the best advantage. Will any ' , person, who knows ought about the subject, i ' say that the disposing of the produce ol the farm is not an important and legtiinate sub ject for the consideration of a Farmers’ Club? . It is the subject that is at this moment oc- 1 copying more of the time and talents, and < causing more discussion in the Farmers' Clubs i of this country, than any other. It is the : subject that is moving the minds, and stirring ( ! the hearts of thousands of the best men and women of the nation. And at the time of the : formation of the 1817 club, it was the most 1 important subject requiring the attention of the farmerr of our country. The question of producing crops was not, ! then, one of such difficult solution ns it is now. . To illustrate; My father, about that time, • raised from 10 acres of land, 415 bushels of wheat. He thinks it “questionable whether that ' Company ever had a Constitution. ” Is he so ! ignorant ns to suppose that a Constitution will , give life, vigor ana vitality to nn organization of any bind ? My idea is that Constitutions receive their life and strength from the organ ization. They had laws, rules and regulations by which they were governed. I have attend ed their meetings—when a boy—and I believe business was done as correctly and, promptly as it is in our modern Clubs, It has been suggested that my unknown critic is ('apt. Jack, or some of his Modoc tribe, in the lava beds f“A Brother Farmer,’’ and the suggestion seems the more plausible, from tho fact that he has never heard of the “Union Bridge Club.*’ If he had been any where in the top of ground—he must have heard of it, os the county papers, or at least one of them, has several times written of the Club and called the attention of the people to the fact of its existence. The remark about the geographical location of Union Bridge I do not comprehend, but sup- I pose it is meant to be witty. I “can’t see the ■ point.*’ In regard to the ‘‘Union Bridge j Agricultural Club,” if “A Brother Farmer’’ : will call on the Secretary or any of the officers, I or members they will be glad to show him the , Constitution ami By-Laws, Journal and papers of the club, and try to enable him to ascertain : | whether it is a line Club or dead Viper, and j j if they cannot satisfy his mind on tho subject, ; I would refer him to’the Governmental Wash- I \ ington. as we have leen in communication j j with, and reporting to the Department of; ! Agriculture, ever since the formation of the I Club in 1864. I have now fired my last shot at the Modoc j j —unless he should come out of his lava bed ' I and present a bold and manly front, mid a | ; target worth shooting at. ! And now a word to the members of the Al- j pha Club and I have done. I have no con troversy with you. I extend to you a kindly j greeting, and Uie open hand of friendship, and | thank you for the efforts you are making to | better the condition of the farmeraml his farm, and to elevate and improve the brotherhood I of man. When I made the suggestion for you to j change the name of your club it was in good faith and with no desire to be officious or i dictate. You will certainly consult your own feelings in the mailer and do as yon think i best. There is not much in a name.

Philadel phians are just finding out what the New York and Liverpool steamship interests long ago knew about the Maryland semi bituminous coal. Canard and other Eu ropeon steamers out of New York have been using it (or years. Notwithstanding General Van Bunn's solemn asservation to the contrary, it would seem that there ha* corruption at Vienna, and that tho investigation has ( developed the fact that money has lieen I! paid for special privileges. Tho sum of 930.000 was expended on the roof of the sowing machine department, when its ac tual cost was not more than $3,000. It is said that the money appropriated to the ■ Commission by Congress ($300,000) is j nearly exhausted. | The Untied Btatc* Consul at Bedfast. i Ireland, writes that during April 3.300 | of the flower of the youth of the ngrieul i tural districts left that port for the United j States.

On Monday, the ll’th instant, at Prince \ Frederick, Md., the case of the State vs. j Albert Handers, colored, indieted for the | , murder in December last of Eugene A. i Hurdell, a clock cleaner, was begun before a jury. The testimony on both sides was | closed on Tuesday, and the jury ou Wed- i nesday brought in u verdict of guilty of murder in the first degree. Handers is a 1 mulatto about twenty-two years of age, j five feet in height, and possessing power- ; ful muscular development, and since his confinement has made a full confession of hia guilt. A shooting aftray took place at Frost burg, on Thursday night of last week, in which a colored man named Bill Cole was shot, and it is feared niortallv wounded, by another colored man named Bob Bush. Tho latter was arrested and brought to Cumberland on Friday, and is now lodged in jail. It appears that Bush had been at a dance at the house of Dan Young, a colored man living on Water street, and was ou his way home when he got into an altercation with two young colored men named Bob and Charley Carter, near where the shooting took place, the quarrel growing out of a grudge held by*the Car ters bgaiust Bush, on account of tho fact tliat he had married the woman who had formerly been Charley Carter's wife, which has served as a standing grudge between them for years past. Cole has since died from iris wounds. On Saturday, Mr. H. D. Straub, on his farm in Washington county, bad cut down in one of his pasture fields a wild cherry tree. A fine steer grazing in the field ale pretty freely of the green leaves, and in a few hours later was found dead in the field, a short distance from the tree, poisoned, no doubt, by eating the leaves of the wild cherry, which are said to contain a quan tity of prussic acid. The leaves of the peach tree arc also said to contain u large amount of the same poison. At Solomon's Island, Calvert county, last week, constable W. A. Tolley arrested i Isaac Colo, colored,.of St. Mary’s county, who is charged with the murder of one ! Mason, colored, some ten or twelve years ago, who also resided in that county at the j lime of his death. Since his arrest, Cole i has confessed his crime, and made a furth er eonfessiou that himself and one Neal Butler murdered Mr. Schofield, of St. Mary's county, and burned his storehouse about two months ago. A new and fatal disease is reported to have made its appearance among the hor ses in the Fifth district of Howard county. It commences with a swelling in the fore shoulder, gradually extending over the whole body, and generally proving fatal in from twelve to twenty-four hours. One I farmer has lost three, and another two horses from the mysterious malady, which, ! however, it is said, extends itself very i slowly, and, it is to be hoped, will bo con fined to its present locality. The arbitrators in tho case of Mr. Geo. G. Gruber against Hagerstown, for dum ages sustained by a mob during the late war, have rendered a judgment for 81.(HR) against the town. There arc vet a few more claims to be settled, which, added to the judgments already obtained will make the total nearly if not quite $15,000. Mr. Win. Koons, residing on Tom’s Creek, Knuuittsburg district, Frederick 1 county, has a cow that gave birth to a calf, on tho loth of this month, which weighed 1001 pounds when twelve hours old. All accounts represent the wheat to be looking very finely throughout Howard i county, while the oats are said to be prom ising well. Two persons were arrested in Hagerstown on Monday for profanity. One was fined and the other was committed to jail for ten days. Horse stealing is quite common in Alio- i gany. Washington and Frederick counties. Interesting Facts About Counterfeits. “Gath,” the Chicago Tribune'* versatile ■ correspondent, has been amusing himself | lately by interviewing an engraver on the ! subject of counterfeit money. Said thl* j gentleman : “ I am one of the oldest engravers in | the country. There is an investigation j one day to he made into the currency of the country which will startle you mid ! your newspapers, aud all tho readers. | ■ There is a slft bill. Take it—look at it. Do you see anything notable about it?” I looked the bill all over, and then the > man all over, and saw nothing to excite a remark in cither. “ There Is nothing par ticular about that bill,” he said, “except that it is counterfeit. There arc eighteen distinct counterfeits ou the 810 bill and, as an engraver, I know they represent eighteen different gangs. People gener ally know nothing whatever about the du plication of United Htatcs bonds, and about the quantity of counterfeit scrip afloat. If you, us a newspaper man, were to go to Gen. Spinner, and to the heads of the Treasury*, and ask how much couu : terfeit currency was in circulation, they ! i would probably tell you Hi per cent, but | j I tell you as an engraver, that they have i ! admitted to me that there is 25 per cent. | | or one-quarter of the whole amount of the | stamps current in this country*, which are | fraudulent. j “Do you know, sir, that the postal cur i rency is renewed six times every year ? j I That is the ease, and see the i>ossibUities ; ; foiwits increased duplication aud counter- ! j felting. We could better afford to pay (JO i j per cent, premium, and use gold, than ! have to deal as we do with a lot of paper which is beyond the control, to a great extent of the Government officials. The extravagantly high prices and the corrup tion in our politics and life hinge upon the currency. Tlie dujdicution of tier.

John Covode and others in Uongrcsss made strenuous efforts to ox- pow it. hut they were gagged by the gav el aud the party majority.

They kept after him, however, ,' an( l on one occasion has appeared before ,; the examiners with bis arms full of bonds, I miu, ibrowing them down, said : “ There r ; a f L * >’obi* $03,000!” Now, there was u | press used for printing at that time, and ’| it ran repeatedly in the night.

TIfHILK nothing is more certain than the v T average mortality of a large group of l>orsons subjected to the same physical condi ; tion*. at the same time nothing is more un , certain than the duration of any one life I among the group. The Insurance Company j Imses it* calculations, and makes it* premium I list upon the average, but each of its policy holders i* forced lo calculate that he may he | the first of the whole number to die. If he I lives he can afford to keep on paying the pre mium every year. If he dies hi* family reap* the benefit from hi* investment. Policy No. 858(1 was issued ly the Carroll County Branch Republic Life Insurance Co. i November Ist, 1872, on the life of Barnhart | Brown, farmer, near Westminster; the sum , insured was $2,000 ; he was a strong, healthy j man, an industrious, moral and temperate person. In a word, when examined by the surgeon, Dr. Billingslea, upon his application for insurance, he was found and reported to be f in every respect, a first-class risk, super ficially speaking, he needed insurance os little as any man could, for his chances of dying were not worth considering. But, ah ! there's the rub,—he happened to be the marked man that death was waiting for; and on the Cth of February, 1878, just 8 months and 6 tlaysnfler his Policy was issued he was laid away in hi* grave. It came about in this way: An old jagged and knurled oak tree, an eyesore to him for several years, stood in full sight of his dwelling; he determined to cut it down and ) remove it. in the effort to do so it fell upon and killed him. i Is any argument needed to point the moral i of this true story ?
