THE MUBPEB CASE.
We learn that investigations were
instituted in the Burke Superior Court
last week, which throws some addition
al“light on this most diabolical outrage
of law and justice. The particulars as
we gather them, are as follows;
the unfortunate victim had a difficulty
with one Mr. Whaley, in which Drew
was being rather rooghlyutaatt with,
when his JM& 1 told
Wbajgy. he not < m F oße upon his
son in thtf,
“Well, aTiight, but
time, and when I do, a—d if 1 doot

In Edinburgh anew musical instru
ment is now being exhibited. It is de
scribed in the English Mechanic ae a
keyed instrument of six octaves, resemb
ling an harmonium in general form, but
very different in mechanism. The sounds
are produced by the friction of wooden
hammers against a revolving cylinder of
wood, set in motion by the feet. The
tones produced are said to be very sweet
and wouderfully varied. “One can
sometimes hardly believe they are not
those of a wind instrument.”
A young man, whose moustache
is visible by the aid ofa microscope,
was the victim of misplaced confi

particularly sweet on a very young
lady, and had previously paid her
several visits. The girl’s parents,
thinking both too young to begin
keeping company with each other,
gave them a gentle hint to that effect,
first, by calling the girl out of ihe
room and sending her to bed ; and
second, by the lady of the house
bringing into the room a huge slice
of bread and butter, with molasses
attachment, and saying to the
youth in her kindest manner: ‘ There

The young people in the vicinity of
Devereux Station had on Saturday a
fishing excursion, followed by a regular
break-down that night, which was pro

On Tuesday night last an attempt was
made to bum the bouse of Col. L. H.
Keuan, in the suburbs of this place. No
oue was in the house at the time, but
fortunately the fire did not take hold
upon the building, though a quantity of
fodder and fat lightwood placed under
the floor by the incendiary, was consum
ed, No traces of the rascal have up to
this time been discovered.
While a wagon was unloading the
other day in front of Wright & Son’s
Store, the driver dropped a heavy keg
or barrel upon a' large box of matches
which being ignited by the friction,
blazed and popped in real Christmas
style, much to the consternation of the
driver, who doubtless considered the sul

A negro man in Vidalia, the other
day, having been found guilty of lar
ceny, by a negro jury, was asked by tho
Court what he bad to say why sentence
should not be pronounced upon him.
“I’ve got nothing to say except that I
ain’t guilty.” “But,’’ said the Court,
“about tho matter there is a wide dif
ference of opinion, as this jury oftwelve
men say you are guilty.” “Well, Mr.
Judge,” said the prisoner, “you might
as well get a dozen ringtailed monkeys
to give a man justice as to let him be
tried by that jury.”
This convulsed the Court, and the
prisoner was remanded.— Natchez Dem.
Action is Man's Salvation. —Men

who mopes and pines and thinks him

salvation, physical and mental ; and yet

A Re awakening in the South.—
One of the most gratifying signs of
the times al the South is the growing
interests everywhere manifested a
mongst the tillers of the soil and
those directly indentified with them
in interests. Agricultural and hor
ricultural journals are springing up
in all quarters, and, we judge from
appearances, they are better patron
ized than before the war. In almost
every one of these periodicals we
learn of the establishment of agricul
tural and horticultural societies for
exhibition and discussion. There is
a bright future for the “sunr.y
Be Social at Home.
Let parents talk much and talk
well at home. A father who is hab
itually silent in his own house may
be in many respects a wise man, but
but he is not wise in his silence. —
We sometimes see parents, who arc
thelile of every company they enter,
dull, silent, uninteresting at home
among their children. If they have
not mental activity and mental stores
sufficient for both, let them first pro
vide for their own household. Ire
land exports beef and wheat, and
lives on potatoes; and they fqre as
poorly who reserve their social
charms for companions abroad, and
keep their dullness for home con
sumption. It is better to instruct
children and make them happy at
home than it is to charm strangers
or amuse friends. A silent house is
a dull place for young people—a
place from which they will escape if
they can. They will talk or think
of being “shut up” there; and the
