A CAT FIGHT BY STAR-LIGHT.
ITerj Mysterious Affair.
Most men have their aversions. Our friend
Bob had an especial aversion to cats. The
n live ot a caterwauling,at night, would arouse'
him from the soundest slumber, or plunge
him into a fit of night-mare, while the ap
pearance ot a cat never tailed to excite his
combativeness ; and woe betide the unlucky
tabby that chanced to come within reach of
his hickory crook. Whether in his youthful
days he had been frightened by a big black
mouser, with glaring eyeballs and “loDg
pickers and stingers," or whether he had ever
received personal infury of any sort from any
cat we never learned, but one thing was cer
tain, our friend Bob was the declared and
ever vigilant enemy Qf the whole feline race.
He i rained his dog not only to worry but to
kill cats, and it waa a remarkable fact that
cats were usually scarce in his neighbor
He had retired to his bed one sultry sum
mer night, and had just fallen into a pleasant
doze, when he was aroused by a cat, call
which proceeded from a neighboring garden.
*‘H_n ,hat cat!” he muttered, as he en
deavored to shut out the abhorrent sound
from his ears. But all in vain. If, like the
spirit of the murdered Duncan, it had cried
“sleep no more ! to all the house’’ it could
not more effectually have banished sleep
from the pillow of Bob. For long weary
hours he rolled and tossed, muttering male
dictions upon the innocent disturberer of his
repose, “or any other cat." After a restless
night he awoke In the morning, only to nurse
his wrath and to imagine all manner of dia
bolical devices against that particular cat and
cats in general-
The next day while passing along the street in
the vicinity of the garden from which came the
annoyance of the previous evening, Bob sud
denly encountered a white cat. Their eyes
met. Tabby, as if by instinct, knew her
foe, poped through the basement window,
and was out of sight in an instant. But
Bob marked the house, which he felt sure
was the home of his tormentor, determining
in his mind that he would avail himself of
the first favorable opportunity to quiet that
disturber of bis peace. Going and return
ing, he frequently went out of his way in
the hope of taking that cat by surprise, bnt
if he got a view of the watchful animal, it
was only for an instant as it daned away
from his dog.
One pleasant starlight erenlng, about ten
o’clock, Bob was returning to his lodgings,
armed as usual with a heaw hickory cane-
He had been to see “the Doctor” in the
Lane, where he had abundantly indulged,
and he was in an excellent humor with
every created thing on earth except cats.
As he approached the portico in front of the
bouse, what should he see but the identical
white cat, perched quietly on the rail, close
to one of the pillars, where the Venetian
blind?, which enclosed the portico, were
slightly ajar. Now, thought Bob to himself,
I’ve got you, my good fellow. Raising the
cane and approaching noiselessly and cau
tiously he aimed a desperate blow at the
white body of the unsuspectinng, perhaps
at that moment passing, feline. Crash! went
the heavy cane! The blow was well aimed—
down went the cat—a heavy fall on the floor
of the portico, was followed by groans of
agony, and the frantic cry of “murder! mur
der ! Oh, my Lord, I’m killed!
Petrified with horror. Bob never stopped
to look after his game. Before he had time
to reflect nr determine, either what he had
done or what to do, bis legs had carried him
far down the street and around the corner,
out of hearing of the cties of his victim. ;
Pull of wonder, amazement and terror, he
baited for breath. There was no pursuit.
What had he done? Who had he slain?
Certainly it was no cat. He determined to
take a circuit round, and, without making
himself known, to investigate the mysterious
As he approached the house he heard a
bustle within—a light was on the portico—-
aereral neighbors had assembled and a doctor
had been sent for, while a man was lying on
the floor, rolling and writhing in the greatest
agony. Os course Bob was astonished to
learn that while the unfortunate man, in the
enjoyment of the cool evening breeze, WM
sleeping on a settee in the porch, with his
unbooted foot resting on the railing, some
unknown miscreant had dealt him a fearful
blow, by which several of the small bones of
the foot were broken.
Bob affected to be as much surprised at
this horrible atrocity and certainly was great
ly more pained at the occurrence than any
of those- present. But he was both ashamed
aod afraid to enter into an explanation of the
mystery. And though ever after he deeply
regretted the circumstance and sincerely
pitied the unfortunate victim of his rashness,
he never told his fault, but let concealment
like a worm i' the bud feed on bis damask
cheek, while, with old cognac and whisky,
he managed to banish melancholy. He how

A Phrenological View of President
In a recent number of the Phrenological
Journal we find this analysis of the character
of “ Andy Johnson •. ”
“ Phrenologlcally considered, he has a
large brain, well supported by an excellent
constitution. The brain is specially heavy
in the base, including large perspective or
gans ; broad between the eais in Destruc
tiveness, Combativeness and Alimentiveness;
large in the lower back-bead, including the
social affections, and were it not that Mr.
Johnson has also a full top-bead, including
Conscientiousness, Veneration and Benevo
lence, he w ould indeed be imperious or des
potic. As it is, lie posseses a very strong
will, the greatest fortitude, and almost un
limited powers of endurance, with courage
and lorce to match. Cautiousness is not
over large ; Secretiveness is full, and the in
tellectual faculties are prominent and active.
Self-Esteem is full, and considerable pride of
character will be manifested. Owing to large
Approbativene9s, he will never be haughty,
proud, or domineering, but will be modest,
just, respectful and judicious, but always
strong and earnest. That he will freely con
fer with his advisers, getting the best judg
meLt f ora all sources, there can be no doubt;
and t iat he will be master of the situation,
be governed by what he conceives to be right
and proper, holding all men to the most
rigid accountability to principles, there
can be no question. There will be no
child’s play with such a man. He will
be calm, self-regulated, and determined.
His organization will incline him to take
a comprehensive view of questions, and
to consider the interests'of the people. There
is nothing aristocratic in bis composition,
but be is eminently democratic in the best
sense of that term, grauting the same rights
to ail men, that he claims lor himself. There
is not the slightest touch or pretension to
royally, or the feeling that “I am better than
thou;” nor would he play the sycophant to
lords or crowned heads. He is, and always
will be, plain Andrew Johnson. He can be
used by others only in the interest of the
people. He is benevolent and even reforr
maton' in spirit, but conservative in princi
ple If severe to the wicked, he will be just;
aud to the humble and penitent, he wiil be
kind. Hi* physiognomy has an expression
of anxious care, as though he were peering
into the future, trying to divine the will of
Providence. He has not that joyous, hope
ful, sunny expression which illumined the
face of Mr. Lincoln, but is more sedate and
stern-looking, which is in keeping with the
character of the man. Mr. Lincoln’s head
was narrow between the ears ; Mr. John
son’s is very broad at this point. Mr. Lin
coln's was high in the centre, indicating hu
mility, meekness, and devotiqu; Mr. Johu
son is not deficient in those organs, but they
do not exert a very marked influence. Exe
cutiveness is the leading trait of his chaiac
ter, and be his Presidential career a success
or a failure, it will not lack propeUing power
or the spirit to punish wickedness. He may
show leniency, but it will not be until lie
first sees penitence on the part of the offen
Important Experiment with Protected
The system of protecting gunpowder, in
vented by a Mr. Gale, was tried at the recent
Wimbledon rifle meeting in England with
singular results. The London Star gives the
following account of the proceedings:
Slow matches were burned into vessels
bolding gunpowder mixed with the protec
tive powder, and they only served to ignite
a few isolated grains. vesuvian matches
were flung into the powder, and were igno
miniously extinguished. A red hot poker
was stirred through the powder, with no
better (or worse) effect. But by far the most
convincing test is that which was proposed
by Lord Bury—namely, that a quantity of
pure gunpowder should be placed in the cen
tre of the protected gunpowder and the
former fired. This experimeut was also ex
hibited. The pure gunpowder was placed
in a sort of pit inside the vessel, and careful
ly covered over with the proteetcd powder;
when the former exploded, It simply blew'
what was above it into the air, and had no
effect in igniting the great mass which lay
beneath and around it. Thereafter a portion
of that surrounding mass was riddled in the
usual way, and the residue exploded as ordi
nary powder will explode.
It requires only to be seen how larger ma
chinery for the sitting ot the powder and
restoring it to its original state, may be con
structed so as to be easily used in a sudden
emergency. For, though the advantages
which the Invention offers to the use of pow
der at home are sufficiently great, It is neces
sary to its adoption by the army and navy
that its mechanical appliance should be of
the swiftest and readiest kind. An objection
has been raised on the ground that, after the
gunpowder had been sifted, some portion of
the protective powder would adhere to the
grains. This is not the case, as has been
S roved by miscroscopic investigation; though
[r. Gale shows that, though it were the case,
it would be no objection, as at present the
coating of the powder with blacklead, while
in course of manufacture, gives additional
force to the explosion.
The material which thus renders gunpow
der temporarily innocuous is simply glass
ground down to an exceedingly fine powder;
various other substances have been tried (es
jjecieiiy flint, which, however, became flouiy
and dusty,) but no one bas been found so
useful and successful as glass. The cost of
it is thirty shillings per ton. At present Mr.
Gale advances three pounds of his powder to
one of gunpowder as the safest proportion ;
but a much smaller proportion renders the
gunpowder perfectly non-explosive; with
this difference, however, that in equal parts
of gunpowder and protective powder the
former will bum though it does not explode.
A proportion ot two to one burns slowjy,
three to one allows a few grains to ignite at
haphazard, fonr to one is mere dead material.
The rapidity with which the powder can be
separated is somewhat remarkable, perhaps
owing toftlMr material with which it is mixed.
Another advantage offered by this material
is that it keeps the powder perfectly dry,
however the mixture may bo exposed to the
air; and it is yell known that by itself gun
powder rapidly absorbs moisture from the at
mosphere and.becomes for the time useless.
Another instance of young ladies devoting
themselves to medical studies, is mentioned
in the Journal de Saint Petereburgh. The
university regulations in Russia do not admit
females, but a Mdlle. K , who had a great
desire to study medicine, some time since
applied to the authorities of Chen burgh for
permiMlon to follow the medical course,
stating that she intended to devote her ac
quirements to the service of the Cossacks,
who had a superstitious objection to being
treated by men, and always have resource to
ignorant old women instead. The young
lady's proposal was accepted, and the Cos
sack Regiment of OrenburgU granted her an
allowance of’twenty-eight rouble per month.
Mdlle. K passed her examination in May
last, for the first half of her course of study,
as well as, if not better than any of the male
students, and the same regiment has-since

Out* Man Kill* Five Fmum to Obtain
Their Money—The Criminal Sentenced
fPa rig Correspondence of the London Morning Post.]
A most dreadful murder, iu which five per
sons fell victims and a sixth narrowly es
caped with her life, came on for trial at the
tribunals on the sth inatanst. The shocking
tradgedy took place on the evening of the
17th March, at Favril, a small commune
situated near Avernues. The prisoner's name
is Constantin-Joseph Manesse. nicknamed
the ‘‘Grand Bumenlins ;’’ he is a laborer, and
lived at Favril. He committed the butchery
for the sake of obtaining possession cf a small
inheritance, and took the lives of five per
sons solely with the view to escape from the
consequences of the first assassination. The
act of accusation cites the following among
other facts : “A few minutes before sever,
o’clock on the 17th of March last, a terrible
and bloody drama was enacted at Favril.
Six persons fell under the blows of one as
sassin ; five died in the course of the
night in an utterly unconscious state,
and unable to utter a single word.—
The sixth waa a long time in great danger,
but ultimately recovered. The first victim
was Isidore Largilliere. He was found in
his stable, his face horribly mutilated, and
with one of his eyes knocked out. From
the nature of the gashes it seemed clear thi.t
a hatchet had been the instrument used in
this brutal attack. The second victim was
young largilliere, seventeen years of age,
who was found by the side of his father
His sknll was fractured iu every part, aud
the brains protruded from a dreadful wound
on the side of the head. The third who en
countered the attacks of the murderer was a
young, woman named Bibiane, sister of
young Largilliere, nineteen years of age.—
She was overtaken and struck down within
a lew yards of the house wbHe seeking
safety iu flight. Her head exhibited
eight wounds, by two of which the
skull was knocked in. The fourth vic
tim was Desiree Largilliere, sister ot Isidore,
and who lived in an adjoining house. She
received five wounds on the head, the skull
being fractured, as in the last case, by two of
the blows. The fifth was Leopoldine Lar
gilliere, sixteen, daughter ot Desiree. She
succumbed to two dreadful blows on the
head, one of which was dealt witli such vio
lence as to knock her brains out. Desiree
and Leopoldine were struck down on the
threshold of Largilliere’s house, when they
were probably hastening for assistance on
seeiug the blows dealt to the first victims and
hearing the agonizing screams ol Bibiane.—
The widow Largilliere, aged thirty-eight, the
only survivor of this shocking tragedy, was
severely wounded in the head in four places,
and dangerously cut under the chin. She
was found lying against the open door of the
house by which Bibiaue had fled, and close to
whom were Desiree and Leopoldine. Some
neighbors heard the blows, and exclamations
of terror, and cries for help; but such was
the well-known character of the murderer as
a brutal and ferocious fellow, that no one had
courage enough to go to the assistance of
the suflerors until the murderous crimes bad
been consummated. The woman Largil
liere, who, after some length of time, was
restored to consciousness, stated that when
at supper with her son and daughter, she
heard her husband cuter the yanl with his
wagon and team of horses. She sent her
son to the stable. A few moments after
wards Bibiaga took up the lamp to join her
lather and brother. After her brother left
the room she felt herself struck, but did not
see her assailant, and immediately became
unconscious. Nothing whatever was stolen
from the house or from the persons ot the
victims." Very shortly before the murder
Manesse was seen by a man named Peize ;
and, after the perpetration of the crime,
foot-marks corresponding with such
as would be made by the sabots
worn by the prisoner were observed.
The murderer was traced across the meadows
to his house and arrested by the gendarmerie.
Manesse at first declared that he was else
where at the time of the murders, but this
was manifestly too improbable to encourage
him iu the hope of proving an alibi. On be
ing arrested he inquired if any of tbe vic
tims survived, and when he was told that
one was still living, he seemed from his man
ner to be afraid that his euilt would thus be
proved. He had changed his clothes and
washed his trowsers, which latter, however,
retained some perceptible marks of blood
Largilliere, whose memory enfeebled by the
terrible alarm and agitation into which she
had been thrown, failed to recall the features
of tbe assassin, who. however, so far from
taking advantage of this circumstance to
insist upon his innocence, was observed
to defend himself with much less bold-
nes* and resolution than before. The un
happy widow never suspected anybody else
bnt him : she never ceased to bear in mind
his violent character, and his want of money,
often expressed to her after her family had
succeeded to the land and buildings which
they inherited. Manesse was scarcely able
to bear the look of this woman; and at the
moment especially when she uttered a prayer
to God, and, uncuveridg her head, displayed
the wounds to the assassin who had inflicted
them, he was finable to suppress an internal
agitation, wfikSi, a9 he declared, would com
pel him to confess his guilt; and on the fol
lowing day Manesse did acknowledge that
he was the author of this dreadful tragedy.
But he made several statements with the
view if possible, of lessening the terrible re
sponsibility which devolved upon him.-
lie declared at a preliminary examina
tion before the magistrate that he had
premeditated the murder not only of Isidore
Largilliere, but of all his relatives, In order
to clear the way to his succession to a pro
perty which he had long ardently coveted
He said, however, that this series of atro
cious crimes had been suggested to him by
one Atnauld Presse, the husband of tbe sec*
ond sister ol Isidore, who was to share the
firoperty with him; but this was energetical
y denied by Presse, and rendered very un
likely from many circumstances, and, ulti
mately, Manessee confessed that these mur
derous deeds originated solely with himself;
that he alone conceived and executed the de
sign of murdering Isidore Largilliere, the
head of the family ; and that he took the
lives of five other persons solely to insure
his safety from apprehension and punishment.
The criminal is condemned to death.
A Washington despatch to the St. Louis
Democrat says that in answer to the applica
tion of a Northern Congressman for the ap
pointment ot one of his constituents to an
internal revenue office in South Carolina, the
President said that he means to go upon the
theory that there were enongh capable and
loyal men in that and every other of the late
Rebel States to fill the offices and reorganize
and sustain the State Government.
The reported intended abdication of King
Leopold of Belgium in favor of the Duke of
Brabant is contradicted. The old king has
quite regained his health, his physicians say
he will live for years, and he displays all bis
old energy nnd activity in the conduct of
public affairs. »;
