Two Murderers liynched. A party of 40 men surrounded the jail at Moberly, Mo., on tho night of the 21st ult., where the three negro mur derers, Ilenrv Mitchell, "Dick" Yancey and Alfred Caseon, were incarcerated, and demanded of the three oilicers who were keeping guard that the prisoners be delivered over to them. The officers denied having the keys, but when drawn revolvers were pointed at them, the keys were quickly produced. The three ne groes were taken outside the jail and ropes were placed around their necks. The mob then proceeded a little way, where horses wero awaiting them, mounted, and with their prisoners rodo off victoriously. An alarm was speed ily given about town, and soon crowds of men Hocked about the streets, excitedly, but the mob had too much the start, and besides, the night was too dark to en able them to rcscue tho prisoners. At an early hour tho bodies of Henry Mitchell and "Dick" Yancey were found hanging from the sbepers of a railroad trestle, one and a h...

The Asforiau, very sensibly concludes that the const ruction of a harbor of refuge at Port Orford will result in an expenditure of ten or fifteen millions of dollars at a point where the use of it will be next to nothing. Not only tliis, but this item of expenditure will be charged to Oregon and it will be next to impossible to get any congres sional consideration for Oregon's real commercial improvement for a quarter of a century to come. The selection is regarded throughout the State as one particularly unfortunate, being cut otl'as it is from inland commerce by almost insurmountable natural bar riers, while from its location upon the Oregon coast it will be regarded as an Oregon improvement, barring out ex penditures for which the commerce of the State makes loud demand. The Continental Onscttc, dated Paris, France, April 3d, contains this item: "Friendsand well-wishers will be glad to team that a son was horn on the 30th ultimo to John and Annie Firmin Jack, the American dramati...

Child Drunkard. There arrived at the New Jersey State reform school at Jamestown on Thurs day a human being, a child in size, with the intellect of a man and the vices of a degraded inebriate. Fully thirteen years of age, most persons would hardiv suppose his years to exceed live. His replies to questions asked, always intelli gent, sometimes witty, generally insult ing, show a wonderfully precocious mind perverted by evil associations. JI orally a complete wreck, his history would make a fitting subject for Emil Zola's pen. The name of this peculiar being is George Lee, and his birthplace and home l'aterson, N. J. When he first saw the light of day the unusual size of his head created some attention, but when in a few weeks the rest of his body assumed a size in proportion to his head, 110 more was thought of the mat ter. His babyhood was like that of most children ; he laughed when pleased and cried when crossed, ami showed no signs of any unusual intellectual devel opment. When h...

An Epidemic of St Vitus' Dance. For several days reports have been rife respecting the existence of a very peculiar malady among the students of St. Martin's convent seminary in Brown county. As the seminary is the favorite one among the Catholics of this city and the west generally, an Enquirer re porter was sent yesterday to it to ascer tain the facts in the case. Some four weeks ago a pupil in attendance at the school, a daughter of Airs. Mangold, of Cincinnati, was attacked with what ap peared to bo the disease commonly known as St. Vitus' dance." The symptoms were, first, an involuntary motion of the shoulders, then a grow ing of the symptoms into other portions of the body, a contraction of the muscles of the arms and face, a slight nausea and headache. The physician of the institution, Dr. Hall, was called in, and the ordinary prescription for such cases administered. The patient, a miss of perhaps twelve, said thut she had never been subject to any attacks of this na ture, b...

Day's corner lot commenced; a galls of Chinese did the digging, while a lot of white la borers stood on the opposite side curs ing and swearing until the air ahout them was blue as indigo. The doctor, upon learning that a number of whites were willing to take the Chinamen's places, at once discharged the latter and employed the former, who, we are happy to note, stand right up to their work and are not ashamed of it. Now, if all our employers were to emulate the doctor's example, and all white laborer's would pitch in and oust the Mongolians, not by violence, but by skill and liouest labor, then the cry: "The Chinamen must go!" would grow very faint indeed.— Walla Walla Watchman.
