MEETIRG OF THE COMMITTEE*.
Agreeably to a call from Gan. A. C. Garllugton,
chairman of the Committee of Arragements, the vari
ous committees of citizens, and the special committee
of the city Council met together in the the ball of the
Chamber of Commerce, at 6 p. x. yesterday. Gen
eral Garllngten called the meeting to order. Quite a
number of gentleman made remarks relative to the
program of the preparations for entertaining the dis
tinguished guest* expected by our city on the 20th
lost. After considerable talking had bean dona, tbe
following resolution was offered by O. H. Jonas, Esq.,
and unanimously adopted;
Resolved, That a committee of three be appointed
to confer with Governor Smith to-morrow, and meet
tha city Council to-morrow night, and report their ac
tion to a meeting of the various committees to be held
at tha office of CoL G. W. Adair, at 10 o’clock Saturday
morning. W. M. Lowry, Gov. J. E. Brown and Attor
ney-General N J. Hammond wars appointed the Com-
»nndar tha above resolution, after which, on
he moating adjourned.
The Association met at 9 o’clock a
Bov. Dr. Douglas.
The first exercise in order was singing by a class
from the Luckie Street Grammar School, under charge
of Prof. H. H. Smith. Prof. Smith led tho singing,
which was very creditable, considering the short time
the pupils have been receiving instruction in the art of
innsic. The class is composed of boys and girls. This
excellent exercise again demonstrated, if demonstra
tion were necessary, the grace, beauty and value of the
study of music in our public schools. Wo trust this
delightful study will bo more generally introduced in
schools, and considered of as great importance as
any other study known and practiced there.
Superintendent Mallon moved the appointment of
a committee, to whom shall be referred all applications
for situations by teachers. Not acted upon.
Mr. Stevens offered a resolution that a committeo bo
appointed, to whom shall be referred the question of
establishing a Georgia Teachers’ Educational Journal.
PROF. WADDELI.’S ADDRESS.
Prof. W. H. Waddell, of the University of Georgia,
tbeu proceeded to address the Association on the sub
ject of the “Modern Use of the Ancient Languages.”
All ages of the world have tbeir peculiar characteris
tics and special idiosyncracies—ours is the age of utili
tarianism—our country is that of the practical intellect;
onr immense strides in material prosperity and the
impulse given by mechanical inventions is the cause
of this. It is the daily life of our people. But utili
tarianism alone is merely earthly, and has no corres
pondence with the skies. Qui lono is now cn every
Up. Will it pay ? is the question. Why, then, they ask,
the use in acquiring tho dead language of the Past?
Why delf in tho dust of the Past ? Why not teach the
simply practical ? Why not give preference to the
practical and mechanical arts.
The speaker gave some amusing anecdotes of the
general ignorance of the masses as to the use of the
purely scientific and ideal. The atudy of Latin and
Greek is the special target for modern ridicule. It is
assailed from all q aarters with violence, so that even
the champions of the tuition of the classics are dis
mayed and inclined to throw up the sponge. The
classics are indispensable to a proper discipline of the
mind. If this is granted, tho practical value of
the study of these languages must be admitted.
I claim for the ancient languages much greater dis
tinction than this. I would prove that these tongues
are of ineffable value in themselves; no man can dis
charge tbe full dntieB of an intelligent citizen without
them. Governor Cobb said in early life lie had depre
ciate d the study of the ancient languages, but he ceased
on finding ont thatjhe was one of those who depreciated
them simply from ignorance. Accurate knowledge of
the nature, power aud scope of languages is a funda
mental principle, and forms the foundation of every
other branch of knowledge known to man. By it
intelligently understand the entire mental phenomena
of man. Thought and its channels must be under
stood throughout before wo can arrive at the climax
of truths. Modern languages alone can not accoin
plibli ail this. Why ? Because they are living, loosely
inflected, and constantly shifting; and secondly,
because they have not a fixed, universally acknowl
edged grammatical construction. The speaker here
gave interesting illustrations of this point. The
power of , transposition, always correct in tho Latin
language, and which is not enjoyed by the Btiff con
struction of sentences in the English, is a great advan
tage, adding beauty and power to tho expression of
thought. The speaker went into an interesting aualy-
of the grammatical construction
English, Latin and Greek langua;
Greek and Latin express the finest meanings;
ruder Eoglieh can not do this. Ludicrous errors
made in the emphasis of our language—errors that
cannot occur in the beautifully aud permanently
pbasizod Greek. In the license of position lies the
power and beauty of the ancient orators and poets of
the Greeks. Milton has approached this sublime
ceilencc in the opening of Paradise Lost. Tbe c
ciseness and brevity of the ancient languages cannot
Euphony is another beautiful characteristic of the
Latin and Greek, unapproachable in English even by
our best poetB. Exactness in tbe reading and pronun
ciation of the ancient languages should be tbe chief
aim of the student. He should think in Latin as
well as speak it. The ancient languages are the
fountain head of human thought, and to understand
them is to give a man a pre-eminence in all the walks
and affair* of life. Their value is apparent in the
commonest affairs of business; it disciplines the
judgment, .cultivates the taste, gives a man com
mand of splendid imagery, and puts into his hands
tbe gathered power of the ancient and of the modem
worlds. Cicero said the plan to compass the mean
ings of eloquence, was to translate tbe grand efforts
of the Greek masters of oratory iuto one’s own lan
guage. Therefore, the study of ancient languages Is
not ornamental, but intensely practical.
Latin is the key to many of the modern languages,
and a mastery of it gives us mastery in the latter. No
preacher can expound the truths of the New Testa
ment w*ho is not able to read the original Greek. The
physician, the lawyer, the teacher, the journalist, are
all under the necessity of becoming familiar with tho
nndefiled treasures of the ancients. Even in tbe arts
that directly appeal to the practical, the pecuniarily
profitable is conserved by the study of these languages.
The “practical” man says that education is to store
the mind with facts, but where can wc draw the pow-
to comprehend the great facts of life but from the
original sources of all the thought and cultivation of
the world? Education is the discipline of the mind,
but it is also more—it is training the soul to imm<
tality; it is to raise man to the heights of the Infinite
and lit him for mansions in the skies. Oh, teachers,
great is your responsibility in training tho germs of
mind. Bo true to your duties and your God! From
your bands, from the impulses you givo to mind, pro
ceed streams that permeate the world and are finally
centered in the great ocean of eternity. See to it that
these are not diverted from their course, for on them
are borne the holiest interests of the human race.
The speaker’s eloquence was repeatedly interrupted
by prolonged applause, and the effect of the address
was most decided.
The next topic was
•‘SCIENTIFIC SenOOL STUDIES,”
by Mr. W. L. Stevens of Savannah. The speaker
gave a comparison between scholasticism and utilila-
rianism. He specially insisted upon the value of
object teaching in onr schools. This system strength
ens the powers of observation, and arouses associa
tions of ideas. These were excellent exercises for the
increase and strenthening of memory, and opens to
the observing youthful mind a fairy world of anal-
yies of visible objects. Mere definition of tbe qualities
and powers of objects aro insufficient, practical appli
cations are Interesting,and have indelible impressions.
Practice is a better instructor than theory and teach
ers should never forget the power that lie* in illus
trations drawn from nature. We must learn to in
vestigate and in ao doing the best educator is natuie;
every pupil should be an inductive inquirer. This
will givo him his own tools to work with in the grand
arena of life, for mere book erudition will not suffice.
Let us have more of the practical and definite and less
of “shams;” names, titles are nothing—facts, results
are all. Delusions seem to be epidemic; to repell
this let ns return to realities; bumble sincerity ; let
us delf for tbe pnre gold and not be
satisfied with the counterfeit which is
tendered ns by tbe empirics in the flelda of education.
There is too much of the mcretrlccoos and not
enough of the real. Teach children as nature teaches,
from real life, instead of from tbe thcorlsm of text
books. Tbe classical and tbe practical can be very
well combined and ia highly necessary In this pro-
grcMive age. Teach science by natural methods, and
take advantage of all the means for illustrative appli
ances which the inventive spirit of the age may give
into the bauds of educators. Tbe speaker was greeted
with prolonged applause at the conclusion of his able
Messrs. Zettler, Stephens, Lancaster, H. H. Smith,
Orr and Calvin.
The committee on Lancaster’s resolution to nom
inate officers are: Messrs. Lancaster, Zettler, Moody,
Roberts and Sims.
In addition to the members sleeted, the following
names were presented and elected:
Mrs. H. L. Harvey, Miss Witcher, Miss Carrie
Taylor. Mias Emma Lattimer, Atlanta.
THE HIGHER EDUCATION OF WOMAN,
was the next essay, by Dr. E. H. Myers, President of
tho Wesleyan Female College, of Macon.
The speaker stated that he appeared io the character
of an innovator—are volutionizer. He insisted that no
discrimination should be made in the public schools of
Georgia in favor of boys as against the girls. The law
seems to give them simply elementary education,while
to the boys are opened the higher institutions. This
is wrong. There should he created a State University
for girls, with ail the appliances of home comforts,
etc., which the wants of their sex specially require.
The expense of such an institution, erected by the
State, will, of course, arouse great opposition; bntthe
ineffable benefits that would be given in return far
outweigh such objections. The moral and intellectual
nfluence8 which would flow from the higher educa
tion of the yoxng women of the State would amply re
pay the ontlay with a profit not computable ia dollars
Private and benevolent individuals cannot fill the
required scope; the State must come in and assume
at ltaat the first cost of such Institution; it is the duty
of the State to provide for the education of tha youth
of both soxas, but prejudice and unwarranted dis
crimination has given the upper hand to male educa
tion at the expense of the female. We must have as
complete a system of education of a high rank for
Kiris as we have for our boys. They are as capable of
education as the sterner sex, and the influence of wo
man is far superior in the affairs and destinies of na
tions. It is imperative that woman keep progress with
toe age; and, in fact, her education should be supe
rior, as she holds in her hand the formaiive principles
of the mind, and reigns the sovereign of home. The
speaker entered into a just and glowing tribute to the
virtues and graces of woman, and portrayed in
graphic coloring tbe qualities that go to make up a
The questions touched upon are of such vital im
portance to society aud the mental status of women
that we hope Dr. Myers’ very able and interesting es
say will be given to the pnblic in full.
Maj. West offered a [resolution in the spirit of Rev.
Dr. Myers, that it is the sense of this Association that
fsmale teachers performing the same duties as males
be remunerated for their services by a similar ratio of
salary. Adopted. « I
was the next subject. The speaker, Prof. J. W. Glenn,
of Jefferson, in a very practical and lucid manner,
•lucidatcd the necessity of practical education,
der to fit students for the stern duties of life, and to
enable them to draw power and assistance from their
surrounding circumstances through tbe benefits of
good and practicable education. By practical educa
tion the speaker meaut a just blending of theory
and practice, of thought aud execution.
The speaker’s disquisition was well received and ap-

sickness were also made.
The names of Mrs. and Miss Colqnitt, of Atlanta,
were also proposed for membership, anil were ad
The various committees appointed to visit tho va-
rioua.public schools of the city, made reports.
Rev. Dr. Wills first reported the results of the visit
of the committee to the Storr’s school (colored). The
committee express themselves highly pleased with
the methods ol governing, adopted in.tbis school. The
best of order is preserved, and a high order of men
tal progress is noticeable. Dr. Wills remarked that if
the colored people are to be improved, elevated and
iBBtrncted, it must be done by the people of the
South. Southerners must instruct the colored race—
they feel for these tbe sympathy that can accomplish
this great object. Southern ladies, especially, are
specially adapted for this humane work, and can best
perform it. It Is our duty to elevate, Instruct and
christianize the colored people in onr midst. Being
our duty, we must faithfully perform it. Again, it is
to our interest to do so, as we thereby develop tbe
labor power of our section and make it most availa
ble ; and finally it is happiness to do good, and then-
fore we ought to do it.
The Chairman of the Committee visiting the Girls’
High School reportod, through Rev. Dr. Bradshaw,
that the examinations resulted most successfully; the
training is thorough, and all that has been done has
been well done. It Is a model institution, and worthy
of the highest commendation and patronage of the
people. The reports were recorded and adopted.
The report of the Boy a’ High School was equally
favorable. The great diligence of the teachers was
specially commended, and the organization and
curriculum adopted, were lauded with unanimous
The report of the Committeo on the Ivy Street School
states that a careful examination assures the commit

The Committee on the Crew Street School reported
that the moat unqualified praise i* due to the Princi

The Committee on tho Walker Street School report
that this school deserves the utmost praise in every
particular, and congratulate the citizens on having
such a fine institution.
The Committee on the Luckie Street School find
that tho rooms are too small, and that an overflowing
enthusiasm prevails in all its branches. Tho commit
tee are unanimous in their praise of tbe efficiency of
the teachers and the progress of the pupils.
The report on the Decatur Street School is equally
favorable. Confidence and sympathy exist between
teachers and pupils, and it is very evident that the
school is taught on the best principles of the art of
Mr. Morrow advocated the resolution In a few able
remarks, and hoped th* excellent system of the

PUBLIC EDUCATION IN GEORGIA
was the interesting subject thereupon opened by tho
Hon. G. J. Orr, the efficient State School
Commissioner. We regret that the inclemency
of the weather prevented as large an audience as
would otherwise have been present. He stated that
universal education of the masses of tbe people Is es
sential to the prosperity and development of the min
eral resources of Georgia. Our mineral wealth is well
known, but ite development is in its cmdest infancy.
You can not even get a clew at tbe location of this
mineral wealth in any of the archives of tbe State.
You can not find the trained labor or the skillful men
necessary to develop them. The same truths can be
ipplied to our manufacturing resources—even here
the trained intellect is wanting, and these resources of
woalth lie dormant. We have the capital, but tbe
men to apply it Bkilliully are wanting, Even in the
agricultural pursuits this ovarsbadowing ignorance,
with few exceptions, prevails. Wo have no skilled
labor to handle the improved machinery of tho ago in
this respect. We have railway facilities, but if we had
the resources I alluded to developed, even then the
great want would be cheap transportation. He alluded
in this respect favorably to tho Great Western Canal
project. The great key of this Is, the want of general,
all-embracing education—trained intellect in every
sphere of life. The Constitution adopted In 1778 re
cognized intelligence as the basis upon which ropre-
ntation and taxation should be built.
Our Blate University and onr denominational col
leges here done noble work; but wbat has been done
for the masses? The old school system was totally
Inefficient; the money spent on it might as well havo
been thrown into tbe sea. Tbe late war broke down
what improvements were being made; tbe authorities
freed .the colored population; onr resources were
exhausted; a new policy had to be inaugurated, and
the new system of public education is a vast improve
ment Onr policy must be to give the colored race
among us every facility in the way of education that
we can; it is our duty. We roust confirm to tbe
order of things in this respect; we can thus control
them to their own and our own best interests.
Professor Orr’a address was exceedingly practical
and interesting, and greeted with long and well de
Mr. Morrow offered a resolution, tbat It Is our
duty to promote the interests of a free system of
pnblic instruction in this State.

A resolution of thanks to the citizens of Atlanta for
their great hospitality and the successful manner in
which the members were entertained during the ses
sion of the Association. Unanimously adopted.
Prof. Waddell proposed that the next meeting of the
body he held in Athens on, Tuesday, after first Wed
nesday in August, 1874.
Prof. Niles objected on tho ground that the interests
of the commencement exercises of tho University at
that time would conflict with tbe interests of tho As
sociation, and that other objections hold good.
Macon was also nominated as the place of meeting,
the time the same as this year.
Athens was lost and Macon was carried, and will
therefore have the honor of entertaining tho next]
meeting of the Georgia Teachers’ Convention; and,I
motion, the 1st of M3y, 1874, was the time adopted.

Mr. Iumcaster stated that as there aro many difficul
ties to encounter in publishing the proceedings u f
the Convention, ho proposed that the expense be
paid by eaeh member contributing twenty-five cents,
in order to enable the committee to have the proceed

annual fee; it would keep many away who would
It was finally agreed to fix the ft?e at one dollar aud
twenty-five cents per annum.
Mr. Mallon proposed that the membership bo made
for longer than one year, and that tlio Treasurer
be instructed to write to absent members and ask for
the fee necessary for the succeeding year. Adopted.
Mr. Mallon hoped that before long the association
will be enabled to pay its own way and not depend
upon the hospitalities ol the citizons of the various

ADDRESS OF REV. DR. BATTLE.
At eight o’clock p. v. Rev. A. J. Battle, D. D., Pres
ident of Mercer University, Macon, addressed tlio As
sociation on “The Theories of College Education.”
The speaker took as his theme in illustration of the
best college curriculum, the German sj’stera. Ho
said tho power of kuowledgo was most brilliantly il
lustrated by Germany in the late war with France*
The most careful system of education is in vogue in
Germany; gymnasiums there are to be feund
everywhere, and, as they should, take the place of our
high schools. Judicious and thorough methods of
education are impressed there upon the mind of tho
youth of the country.
The question is, shall the system of our college ed.
ucatiou be free and flexible, or the reverse ? shall tho
old system be retained, or shall the progressive, icono
clastic tendencies of onr ago be allowed to decide tho
questions involved ? Wo should not abandon hastily
old amd tried systems ; wo should make haste slowly.
Should the college system bo technical or disciplin
Advocates of the technical insists that students
should fit themselves for some special field, and that
outside of this is all worthless. He should only seek
to obtala the practical.
The advocates of a liberal and wider theory maintain
that the mind should b# disseminated over tho
whole field of learning, aud that to confine
tho mind to tho study of specials is to cripple and
cramp the spiritual nature of man. Spiritual good is
superior to the material—money is not tlio whole
geod of life. Money-making Is epidemic In our age.
It makes individual and national corruption. The
broadening of the mind should be the object of all
students. Superior culturo exacts admiration and
gives power and Influence. Tbte holds good In all
branches of life. I am Inclined to tho latter views,
without, however, neglecting tho demands aud benefit
of the technical.
The German stndent is not onr«dded; his intellect
is trained in the many-sided system. In our colleges
the same system should be pursued. No exclusive
technical stadias should be enforced, bat a large and
generous scholarship. Let the college bo the conserv
ator of true education.
The curricular system Is tbe most economical, and
secures just and symmetrical education and discipline*
But for minds who cannot pursue wide fields of study
this system is not so good, and greater variety can be
had in the elective system and Is the most popular.
Koch one con stand sad progress on his own merits.
Th* arguments pro and con advanced by tbe chain-
pi os# ©f either system were clearly and very Interest
ingly presented by the eloquent speaker.
We need a course of gymnastic studies for the ml*
nors in intellectual culture. The University of Vir
ginia Is, In iU structure, a real university—a grand
monument of culture. The elective system is the
most general system, and the classics are being aban*
The golden medium should be preserved,
e aro in the transition state of mental culture, emer
ging from a chaos of conflicting ideas. The classical
and purely technical would have blended, and so form
a harmonious whole In keeping with the spirit of our
Tbe speaker drew a yery graphie picture of tbe
university as It should be, and we hope that tho
learned gentleman’s ideal will aoon be made real and
tangible in this country. Tho speaker was greeted
with great applause during tho delivery of his excel

John Day, a California hunter, recently fell
in with a California lion, and f.ught him sin
gle-handed, nndar the most exciting circum
stances. Tuesday of last -week, Day’s dogs
brought something to bay high up on the
mountain side. Supposing the game to be a
lynx or a wildcat, he made his way to the spot,
guided by the noise of the dogs. Before
reaching the dogs, the mountain sides became
so steep that it was with the greatest difficulty
he made the ascent. Finally he arrived near
the place, and fonnd an almost level spot up
on which to stand. Casting his eyes upward,
he beheld upon a cliff of rocks, 10 or 12 feet
above, a California lion, crouched and angry.
Onr hero lost no time, bat levelled bis rifle at
the animal’s head. Growling with pain and
rage, the infuriated beast sprang down fall of
tight and fury, and the hunter found himself
prostrate beneath his savage antagonist. His
gun was knocked out of his hands, and went
sliding down the slope. He had a butcher's
knife, but that was in bis boot, and, unfortu
nately, he had a pair of overalls over all.
There was, luckily, a holo in the overalls,
through which he succeeded in getting his
hand, nnd got his knife. He struck the brute
in tho head with his knife the first lime, but
tho skin was so tough and wrinkled that the
knife failed to penetrate. The second time,
he stabbed the animal near the small of the
back. Uttering a yell, the animal bounded
Day immediately gained bis feet and fonnd
himself but slightly injured. The Hon, hav
ing gone down the hill some distance, stopped.
His nfle being between him and tho lion, Day
went for the gnn, nnd aflor getting it, so steep
was the ground, he could not keep his foot
ing, but went slippling and sliding until he
was almost upon his old foe. But the lion
had no desire to renew the conflict, and when
he saw the enemy descending upon him he
started for the mountains on the opposite
side, screaming worse than any female. Sin
gle-handed a man is no match for a full-grown
California lion, but Day was decidedly in luck,
considering that his shot did not prove fatal
Tho lion, somehow, had lost one of his fore
paws, perhaps in a trap. This prevented it
lrom using its fore feet, and likely discour
aged it. Day’s bullet broke its under jaw.
The only wounds Day received were in the
shoulder, inflicted by the lion’s upper teeth
in its attempt to bite him.

Tho Modocs’ Long-Nursed Re
The treachery of the Modocs in murdering
the peace commissioners brings up afresh the
history of the former masacre, in which eigh
teen Modoc peace men were murdered. In
1852 north California was disturbed by Indian
troubles. The same year a company under the
command of Captain Benjamin Wright organ
ized and proceeded from Yreka to the Indian
country around Tule lake and the lara beds,
and fought three successful battles. Their
force being insufficient for the Modocs, they
returned to Yreka and organized a larger
force, and then marched again to the
Modoc country. Winter approaching found
the Modoc supply of blankets, mmunition
aud food extremely limited; consequently the
Modocs were anxious for a cessation of hostil
Capt. Wright received tho Modocs’ over
tures with great cordiality. A peace confer
ence was agreed upon, and a place wa* ap
pointed in the immediate vicinity of the mas
sacre of Gen. Canby. The conference met
about twenty-five Indians and thirty white
men. While discussing the terms, Wright
gave his men the signal, and in a moment
they killed eighteen Modocs. Seven Modocs
escaped. Thus perished the fathers of the
present Modocs. Captain .Tack was then but
nine years old, John Schonchin nineteen,
Boston Charley and Hooker Jim two years
each. It is probable that revenge grew with
age, culminating in the Canby-Thomas mas
sacre. Some years afterward Wright was ap
pointed Indian agent at Kouge river. He
was apprehensive of Modoc vengeance. One
night a Modoc chief, named Enos, murdered
him, and horribly mutilated his body. Enos
was afterward captured and hanged. He died
exulting that ho had wreaked vengeance on
the leader of the massacre of his murdered

TARY HAMILTON FISH’S COU
The final disposition of the immense estate
of the late Joseph R. Stuyvesant was yester
day again a subject for interlocutory adjudica
tion by Judge Barrett The Jury received
the result of tho inquest by the commission
appointed by him and of the Sheriffs jury irn
panelled in pursuance of his order on the
question cf iho insanity of Nicholas W. Stuy-
vesant, the only son of Joseph R. Stuyvesant,
who is indisputably legitimate. His Honor
will probably make an order on Monday,
turning over the case to a referee for the pur
pose of taking testimony on the question of
THE LIFE OF A ROYSTERER.
The old gentleman who has bequeathed this
litigation to the world was a person ol singu
lar character. When young he ran ftway from
homo and went to sea. He inherited vast
property, and would have died worth several
millions, instead of $250,000, if he had been
only ordinarily frugal. His habits, however,
were a singularjcoriipound of profligacy and
parsimony. To his son, Nicholas, lie made
an allowance of $800 a year, and beyond board
ing him,would not extend the allowance in
any respect. At the same time he spent bis
princely income lavishly, and will long be re
membered in his usual haunts as a talkative,
bibulous old man, who made a special point
of paying as ho went, and of resenting any
question as to his personal expenditures as a
WHAT MISSION SHOULD HE TAKE ?
The son, Nicholas, inherited many of his
father’s eccentricities, but was more particu
larly noted for his fastidiousness in dress and
for his romancing proclivities. When Presi
dent Grant first appointed Hamilton Fish, a
cousin to young Stuyvesant, as Secretary of
State, the young man bored all his acquaintan
ces by repeated conferences with them as to
what foreign mission ho should take. The
relative advantages of a resident in Madrid,
Baris, London, and Berlin as a diplomatic
agent of the United States, seemed to be a
question of impossible solution to him, aud
he kept on talking about it until his mental
aberration was so pronounced as to admit of
no doubt that
A LUNATIC ASYLUM
was tho proper place for him. It is curious
to reflect that up to within a few days of the
time when he was manacled and carried off to
an asylum, he was swearing that his father
was crazy, and that a jury depending mainly
upon his testimony, had docitied that the old
man non compos mentis, and consequently un
able to make a contract leasing property to
JABNDYCS AND JAHNDYCK.
The appointment of a receiver ot tho luna
tic’s property, and the question as to what
shall bo allowed for 1ns support, will not be
seriously contested. But the Brownings, uncle
and two aunts on tho one side, and the half
brother and Bister, alleged to be illegitimate,
on the other side, have a nice prospect ahead
of a litigation which will probably last half ft

Tho family of David Mannen, with the
exception of himself and his daughter (fif
teen years old), had left home on Monday.
Mr. Mannen was at work in the field, and the
young girl in tho house, reading. A negro
man, fifty years old and the father of grown
up children, who lives in the same neighbor
hood, entered the house, seized the girl as
sat in the chair, threw her to the floor and
attempted to ravish her, but he became
frightened at her outcries and left without
accomplishing his purpose. Before leaving
the negro threatened to kill his victim if she
informed on him. The girl was seized with
hysterics and cried all night, unable to tell
what was the matter. The next morning,
however, her mother elicited from her what
had taken place, and upon the return of her
husband and son from the field informed
them. The son, a youth of eighteen, Beized
his gun, and in his shirt-sleeves, accompanied
by his father, grode to the negroes house.
On being called out, the negro ran out the
back door of the cabin, aud was at once
shot by young Mannen in the thigh, and
again while getting over the fence in the back
of the head. The last discharge of the buck
shot proved immediately fatal. The youth
then went to Minerva and surrendered him
self, was tried tho same afternoon, aud was
discharged by tho magistrates. The whole
community justified the act. Intense excite
ment prevails at Minerva, and the deepest
sympathy is felt for the young girl and her
Hebrew Emigrants from Roumania.—It is
said that the cruel persecutions to which the
Israolilish inhabitants of Roumania have
been subjected for several years past have
caused them to turn their eyes towards this
country. Several wealthy and leading He
brews recently arrived in New York, having
come as pioneers to arrange for the settle
ment of several thousand of their co-religion-
ists who desire to make their homes in this
new country. It is thought that they will
locate near Lincoln, the capital of Nebrasaa.
The New York Herald says :
It is computed that as soon as their colony
has been fixed upon in the United States that
from three to five thousand will immediately
proceed across Europe to Antweip in Belgium
where they will embark for this port It is
reported by Mr. Jaroslawaski, of 428 West
Forty-third street, that lully fifty thousand of
the Jews in Roumania are desirous of pro
ceeding to this country, and that an organi
zation of friends has been established in this
city to help their persecuted brethren who
may arrive here.
