"L MARSHALL'S BAR J*. A :NE\V BNGL'JSD STORY. Silverton is a quiet, old-fashioned New England town, lying in as charm ing a bit of country as one would wish to see Soon after leaving the village, the road towards the south passes an old stone house which has been standing there since Kevolutionaiy times, and still looks strong enough to be the future home of generations yet unborn. About and beyond it lie: broad fields of grain, growing yellow under the August sunshine, and acres of corn rustling the summer breeze. And all this is the property of one fortunate man. Standing upon the broad balcony ot the old stone house, he can look toward the east, and toward the west, and call it his own almost as far as he can see. But some yeais ago the fxrai had wo owners, and Richard Dean, who lived in the stone house, and John Marshall, who owned the land opposite to it on the other side ot the road, were no friends. There had been some ancient quairel about landmarks and Capulets and Mon tagu...

WASHINGTON, D. May 25. 1878. It is with grim satisfaction not al- some definite plan upon which to build their future operations. The meeting.yesterday evening, lasted 2 hours, and at times the excitement oyer the matter under discussion ran high. The discussion was over a resolution that had been presented, endorsing the investigation of the elections in Floriba, and Louisiana by the Potter committee. A tre mendous opposition was developed to the resolution, which shows that the sentiment, of the people is more certainly than the action of Congress, for most of the delegates are fresh from, the people, and know their temper better, than the Congressmen can who have, for the most part b...

ill .1 A STRANGE CASE Atlanta Ga. (May 12, Cor. N. Y. Herald.1 Some mouths ago the Herald contained a remarkable story of the conviction of two men for murder upon circumstantial evi dence and the subsequent discovery of new evidence that stayed the execution of the first conviction. An important discovery just made revives this story and shows how unreliable the strongest of circumstantial evidence may be. About one year age Mr. Rozier, a well-to do merchant of Sparta, 6a., was murdered while walking from his store to his house. His body was discovered by the town mar shal, Griggs, and two men named Lovett and Barnes, who reported it to the family of the deceased. The murdered man had been struck with some heavy blunt instrument that forced his skull in without breaking it. Suspicion fell upon the marshal and his col leagues, and a detective was sent for to work the case up. A STBONG ABEAY OF PROOF. The circumstancial evidence against them was very strong. Their stories did not fit...

Yakob. It was a saying in the family that "Sue was the poet, Joe the fancier, and Char ley had discovered the Yakob." It needs very little wit to give a say ing long life in a lonely farm-house, and Yakob was as remarkable a novelty among us as a poem or a good deal of money would have been. He was a very short, very stumpy, very white headed Durh boy of seven teen, whom Charley found on the Bat tery one winter's day. Charley went to New York every winter to buy groceries for the plantation, and clothes for the slaves, and he had found Yakob on his last visit, in 1859, just before the war began. Yakob had landed from an Antwerp schooner, and fallen among thieves, who left him in ra^s and penniless, when Charley came, like the good Samaritan, to his rescue. "But what ban you do with him? my father demanded, when the queer look ing creature stood before him, his big eyes staring straisnt at him. Oh, there will be some place open for him on the plantation, sir," said Charley. He'll be ...
