THE EVENING STAR. | T1IE Th' R nmored Frr*r?cr of the C. O. I R in ^ e w Y ork?Probably Another t a*e o1 nitlakrn Identity. T i? whereabouts of Head Centre Stephen* ha? been cansmz a go>vd deal of speculation throughout the State* dnrmg the past wc*k, ;> . icnlarly among the members of the organ i*.at cu, as well a* those who have never coatnfu'ed directly or indirectly towards the muvrBrllL 1 t?e breaking out of a rebellion in Ireland h-f >re the eud ol the old year vm to denote his pr. ence ir. that country; bnt having failed, as supposed, to lon e a way through the net work of liiitisb muskets, they have naturally concluded that the whole nmg te as gigantic a swindle a? the establishment of an Irish Recti k tic in Union Square. Th? rumor which gained ground throughout the ?ltj, to the effect that Mr. Stephens was Mill m New Yor*. and staying under the assumed name of Scott at a boarding-house ia Fast 13 h sreet, is contradicted. The lady who rents the bouse allnded to states that a j gentleman whom she could not name had been boarding at her loi a short time up to Wednes- i day last, when he took his departure without i auy attempt at di?gm?e. While he remained there several gentlemen had been in the habit of tailing upon bim, hot none of that secrecy peculiar to conspirators was observed during :lie audiences given them. Heoccupied a parlor and tiedroom on tbe first Hour, and looted hi* bill* in advance. Capt O'Shea, a gentleman connected with 1 the Stephens organization, and an old residect of this city, nas been ims'aken for the C. ' O. 1. K so frequently, tha' he has probablv now began to regard hims?-lf as more than a fcrctbfr" ?o the Chief. It is quite possible thru tbe Captain, perhaps know igly, has b*ten personating the C. O 1. K in i:jth street lor the purpose oi throwing tbe detectives and the Briti? b ConsnI off the track. On a recent tour j through tn<? Western States, he was supposed to be Mr Stephens everywhere he addressed :t:e f ?ple While the Fenian mihtarv Cjnnc.l was m -ssion at Dublin. liefore ' he suspension of ihe habeas corpu* act, this same Captain O'Shea had a trio ol detectives dnggu.g Ills footsteps tor several days, nnfil ttiey finally decided that he was in reality the escaped Head Center, and hired an Italian mo?le| artist" to dash Tip against htm. Upon \ which a pair of policemen pounced on him j and took turn to th^ station-hous#*, wli h* ' wa^, forced to allow hi* tace to be washed *uh ho" water, and bis beard pulled. The modest st.m ? seven shillings and sixpence, sterling, wa- extracted from his purse and handed to the supposed vendor of images, aud ne was ultimately disc barged, only to r>e re-arrested some days alter ny another braceof detectives. Ttie - -iidrten tiepar'ure of J is. Stephens far parts in known 'itiiy he accounted for t>v tbe fact that ' iptain O Shea has left for We w jersey, where tie 'o ao'lr*.-s ? meeting lUis evening.

At about 7 o'clock the next morning, three neighbors were called in, as they supposed, to iay cut s stranger, wno .Richardson said had died there the previous evening of cholera; but w hen ttey arrived at the house it. was only to help lead a coffiu. which wa? already close l up. The coflin was sent in a spring wagon, and Richardson started with it, as he said, tor Carlisle Station, to send the corpse to the family olthe deceased. So-picion of loul play being aroused, a dispatch was sent to Fuiton. which brought a mat the corpse arrived there some ourmg the night, and was interred about it; .dnigbt I'Ulcers were sent from here to F itcn. who louno the yrave to contain a codin ni.^d with broom cor seed.

Independent of the proof by this confession on the p.irt ol the Wile, tne Court very properly adjudge.! a decree of duor.e for a woman who would oy her own act. place upon ihe pnbiic records of a judicial tribunal the acknowledgment of her want of virtue, could not, or should not, be allow ed to marry, or remain married, to one, even if he were as mean an she hersell.?AiOanv Argus. ' A San Cask?a father Testifies agamst kit St.%fcr forgery ? We never remember to have witnessed a sadder scene in court than one which occurred in the city court yesterday mormrg J. 1. Foster was presented beiore his Honor Judge Craig, npon a charge of lorgery, having forged two checks on the Citizens' Bank and one on the Secoud National Bank, each for */ai, purporting to be signed by K.

The two checks on the Citizens' Bunk were passed ou Stratton A Snodgrass, audtneoneon the National Bank on the Spurrier House The ttrst witness on the stand was K.J Foster, father of the accused, who testified that the checks were forgeries. When asked it he had not paid similar checks for his con, he replied, bursting into tears, that he had paid between 4I5.0UI and 8 >.u,? lor him The heart of the old-man ccuid stand it no longer, being compelled to thus make public the faalts ol his sen. The scene iu the court, as thestont man shed tears hkean ir!ant, was most sad. Judge Craig, after making some appropriate remark* on the conduct of young Foster, required him to e1Ve *'cO tond to answer.-^LouuciUe Ptnocrai, i'.tK A (4Cl>T!OJ? OK 1 JITkREST TO J*W8? One of tbe Jews in Bostou who keeps a store, was arresua lor keeping open on theSakbathon Sunday. The case was brought up in the Municipal Court and sent to the Superior Court, the counsel for the Jew taking thu ground that as long as tbe Jew kept what he conscientiously believed was the S.ibbath? which was from li o'clock Friday night antil 'he same hour on Saturday night?he could not be fined or imprisoned lor keeping open his sbcp on the day set apart for worship by the Christians, to-wit, Sunday. I^ast week tbe c??e was brought before j ndge Wilkinson in the Superior Criminal Court, v. ho slated tha*. he mnst confer with his associates. There the matter rests at present. In the revised statu ei ol Massachusetts one article makes it lawful lor any man in tbe State who does not believe in the Chris'Inn Sabbath to worship on such day in the week as he chooses. The Jews of Boston, as a general thing, congregate on Saturday, and services peculiar to their creed are conducted by a regularly ordained and duly commissioned Jewish priest DlftTBBSftiHrt Aci iubmt ib Mivxbbota ? On Saturday morning last. Mr. Melancton Smith, a young man of about twenty years ol age' while walking around one of the va?? in Cnt. ;er, Sepombe A Co.'s paper mill, in Sain: Anthony, mi?sed his looting and fen into a vat of boiling lime water. He went in all over except bis head, and, strange to say,had presence of mind enough to jump and catch bold of the edge of the vat. where he bnng by his left ' hand until bis cries were heard by a negro, who came and assisted him out. His clothing : was taken off immediately, and he was p*cked in cotton batting and oil. " The burn was deep aod. consequently fatal, tbe skin slipping from the flesh on 'he slightest pressure. The yonng man died after a suffering of six hoars from the time of the sad accident.

Stock you cart. I The Massachusetts Ploughman in discoursing upon the above subject giv?s tne following excellent and trr.tht'ui remarks, which should be heeded by all our readers: ' There Is uo ? ay to keep up a 'arm so readily, or 90 well, as by keeping all the stock it will ?airly carry, in order to produce the largest possible amount of good manure. Somethin* may be done with artificial manures to be sore, >iu? rhey are to be considered rather as stimulant* to the immediate crops, than as means of keeping up the permanent fertility and condition of the land. We believe in stockin? a farm pretty nearly up to Its utmost capavity. We do not mean by this to rt?comuaeud a farmeT to keep more than his farm will carry well, bnt to keep as much, and if he bastosupplement a little, that is, to bar more orles* grain or hay to help out a rather short crop, he had better do this than to sell his hay for want of stock enough locsu^ame It. In other words, it it> better to sell the produce of the farm on four legs, tban to sell it lu the form of hay aail grain, unlets he has some other aud extraordinary means ot supplying a full equivalent in the form of fertilizers, that will keep up the condition of the land. We have seen hay seld in the barn ia the country, within a week, at thirty-threedollars a ten, and that, too, mora than forty mile* from Boston. Of course the temptation is very strong "to let slide" at such a price, rathertban to feed it out to an ordinary stockof cattle. No one would pretend to say tt Is worth that money te feed to common stock Cattle ought to be ot a high and first rate quality tojustify an expectation that it will pay that to feed out. And yet it is probable that it will go higher instead of lower in the course of the winter. But we must look abead a little and see where wears ikely to land. Manure is high as well a* bay, aud when we begin to look about to see bow we are to supply the place of a large heap of goed barn yard manure in the spring* it is acit ea.-y to tell bow to do it a: any reasonable price. The good farmers of Connecticut valley, many ot whom we know personally, find it tor th? in merest to buy a large amount of s'ock in the (ail. and to buy grain from ne West at high prices to feed ont to it for the sake of the manure They may lose ou the stock, ltmay sell for less in the spring, or, at any rate. for little more tban they paid lor it in the fall. They lock lo the crop which ttiey cau produce with the manure, to take up any loss they may sustain on the stock, and naving tried it year alter year, lbey do not look in vain. They have learr.ed to put confidence in manure, and every farmer who expects to prosper mu?t learn the same lesson. Manure is the basis o" the fanner's prosperity, aud stock is the fertile source of manure. It is, theretore, a short-sighted.policy to sell bay if it is possible to consume it ou the pl*o-? with good, thrifty, growing stock. Much of the stock in our barns is not of tttis description, we are sorry to say. Some of it will pay and pay well. "Some of it will consume a gooa dt-a! of hay and not pay at all. There is a T:vt dillerence between the two classes of stock in this respect. A co"v that is really worth from ve to a bundled dollars will pay be' ter in the long run fur the food she consume* than a cow that is really wortii only forty or fifty dollars. In many cases a farmer had better pay even more than the higlier price, thin to take the lower priced animal as a gift. Thpercentage ot profit on tn?' one will he larg>*, ev-n with the present high prices of hay and fodder of all kinds. The other will pay no percentage whatever, and it may even co-^V about a* much as she is worth to fatten her. What we need more than anything, in our New England system of larmtngisa higher and more profitable cla?s of stock. We ar?* gradually coming to it. Twenty years of the present enterprise and spirit of improvement will make a great change, and the plan we suggested of stocking our state and town f.u m-i with pnre bred stock will contribute more to bring soout tins result than anv other that we cnn oevi?e. Keep good stock, keep it well, and winter as much of it as you can winter well. It willpay better than to i-ell hay. Gavarwi's East studikh ?
