Among the parties Sa who Aeon tracts were made were the Slahs taf Company, the Mystic River v'tioaal Bank, tile St. Xlcholaa Bank, the WindHint National Bank, the 8econd ha- ttonal Bank, the Lincoln National and “cratit and 1 Ward’s notes were indorsed by Ward himself, in order to get the money 2, them. The manner of discounting the ®, ‘ r at these banks Ward could not ^member. The profits, Ward tsstiftal, „L dimply written down as the person estimating might please. They imaginary and could be nut »t any tlgnres. Contract No. 233 had fhe words opposite ”0. & W. take this.” Ward said that Grant & Ward did not Uke anything. That he wrote the words bimolf' but did not remember anything sboat it- The imaginary profit on this „ $3(1000. Opposite one of the SStrach. were the initials ”C. A. A" The witness, however, said tbit President Arthur had no interest wbstever in it. Many of the contracts and letters were merely private work- There ns no system of division of prolits, when giv occurred, but Ward admitted that he nsuallv got his share. Fish was the one who determined what interest each one bid on contract business, and Ilia decision in these cases was arbitrary and unques tioned. When Ward made the the transfer of $500,000 to Warner of profits in a transaction he did not know what securities were taken. Ward was serred witli a subpoena to testily liefore theerand jnry as he entered the referee’s room to-day. CATHOLIC CHURCH AND THE NEGRO, ps the mayor’s contribution to their punishment. The peace of communi ties must be maintained. Savannah Timei: Work on Cuyler swamp is progressing most satisfacto rily, and the chain-gang has now reached n point about four hundred varis this side of the Skidaway road. There are now 81 convicts on the gang, probably the largest numlicr since the organization. Of this number 75 are men, and the balance women. Every convict on the chain-gang is colored witli the single exception of one white man named Sykes, who waa sentenced to a term of one year from Tattnall county for stealing a hog from a negro.

No Famine In Such Scarcity. , Banner-Watchman, Whito Radicals are very scarce in Georgia, and more so in Clarke county. Bishop Cross’s Pastoral Letter on the Subject. Augusta Chronicle and Constitutionalist. In the Catholic churches in Georgia last Sunday was read the admirable pas torsi of F.t. Roy. Wm. H. Gross, D. D„ bishop of Savannah, upon the subject of the work of the church among the colored people of the State. The letter was im- portant to those of the faith as conveying most selemn directions, and is of interest to the general public as treating of a prob lem which has puzzled partisans ns well as patriots, and it now confronting the ■talesmen at every turn; the elevation of the colored race in the South. The Right Reverend Bishop says, at the outset, there are 725,000 negroes in Gcor- & an amount exceeding the whole nunc of Indians in the United States. Their tisiumg for the functions of citizen ship and for the duties of life, for which they are daily being called, is a most vital matter. ’They take their place,” says Bishop Gross, “ever Increasing, too. among the mechanics, farmers and trades men, Ihey will enter the various professions, and equally be called on to take np arms ia the hour of the country’s danger.” They must be prepared for the use of the ballot, which controls the destinies of the commonwealth. An effort must be made If anybody would like to know why there are ao’many mud-covered doctors idinjs like mad along our streets, we vill simply say that the spring llight of the guileless cucumber has begun. That la No Excuse fer Begging. Augusta Chronicle. If the Southern people had notsgam- bled away the hula of their profits and earnings since tiie war, in New York and Chicago, they would not now be aturdy beggars for all kinds of govern, ment aid. Not Thla Year—Some Other Year. Galneivtlle Southron . We would about as soon have a yellow jacket sting us, be kicked by a Georgia mule or struck by an average cyclone as to have the Telegraph and Messenger after ns in a matter of wrong we have done and they can get the record on us. The truth is, when it is going for some of the boys who may not be as pure as Camara wife, we sometimes think it ought to be ar rested for cruelty to animals, not, how ever until otter the election of this year, as its level-headedness upon the tariff question atones for nearly all its little sins. Caorgla va. Maine. ltorniug News. Prohibition appears to mean a great deal more in Georgia than it does in Maine, There is certainly not so much parade made over it in the Southern as in the Northern State. Notwithstand ing the vast amount of temperance work that has been done in Maine, the amount of intoxicating liquor sold with in it* borders is enormous, and now when it is proposed to put a prohibition amendment in the constitution, the nhicst advocates of temperance in the State rise up and oppose it on the ground that it cannot lie enforced, be cause public sentiment is not ripe for It. Georgia, quietly and unostenta- tously, and in a comparatively short time, has done more genuine tetniicr- ance work than Maine has, although Maine has been posing for years before the country ns a great temperance State. ot the negro problem waa not the emigra tion of the roce, but moat of it remained for the work of the church to accomplish. .The Bishop then goea on to declare that the colored-race will not be elevated by wealth. “The poeietsion of wealth only toe often allarea man to the indulgence of aU those excesses which gold can so easily Procure.” Nor can mere education be relied upon to work this reform. Educa- cation “only too often inflates with pride and vanity; often renders men unwilling to work for a livelihood: gives them tastes above theii position: in life: mastu C...; attempt to gain money by dishonest mesns." “The foundation of all trne worth la mor ality. Man must honor and eatcem the chaste, honest and truthful, even though “lev shcnld be clothed in poorest garments »j}d unprorlded with a secular education. The men aqd women adorned with parity, meekness, humility, honesty and obedience are Hie citizens who constitute the real strength of the Btato. Men and women who are Impure, dishonest and Immoral are the scourges to society even if they have been trained to science and have purtei full of gold.” pThj,Bbhop, sRir pointing out what the Lathiinc church is doing for the colored people in Georgia, enjoins continuation and mcreasement of the work, and orders a eolkction for the establishment of schools “'chapelsfor the colored people. The pastoral is ciear, earnest and contains many practical thoughts as it ia foil of striking suggestions.

A Cowardly, Dishonest Respect of Per- eons. Augusta chronicle. Not long ago, wo understand, a pool man in Georgia, generally hard-working and industrious, and the solo support of a family, to whom, as a rale, he be haved in an exemplary manner, became intoxicated; and, while disguised in liquor, forged an order for $1.50. He was arrested, tried, convicted and sent to the penitentiary for a term of years, He had in money to pay smart lawyer! and no influence to create public or jury opinion in his favor. During his incar ceration—he is still in durance vile— his heart-broken wife died and serious trouble came upon his family. We do not pretend to say that ho was gui” less, and that (to should not Ira been punished; hut what a contrast can bo drawn between his tato and that of numerous brilliant, powerful trusted nabobs who have recently stattlcd the world with their perlldity Knavery, double-dealing, fraud and hy pocrisy, not to say sober and deliberate theft.

AGRICULTURAL CLIPPINGS, When the. animals are turned out to grass provide them with salt freely and regularly. Many good farmers prefer placing rock salt where Block can get to it at all times. When this is done the animals will never take more salt than is good for them. Mr. Wm. Sanders, superintendent ol the Department of Agriculture grounds ind gardens, in Chicago, says that no >art of a pear or apple tree coated with ime, has ever been affected with blight. A correspondent of the New York World has long practiced charring re fuse corn cobs for his hogs. When thoroughly blackened he sprinkles the cobs with salt. This induces the hogs to cat them greedily. His herd has never been troubled with “hog chol era.” Has tho charred cobs kept off thediseaso ? The correspondent thinks they have. A few people understand how the small white onions, pickled, and sold in glass jars by (jroceryraen, are grown. Tho same seed is used as for large on ions, hut it is sown thickly—say forty or more pounds to the acre, while to produce the large ones hut livo or six munils are sown. A rich black mold s best for onions. In feeding oats to horses during the season ofhard labor, remember that the best are not always those which look bright and arc free from mustiness or other odor indicating previous damp ness or heat; weight of oats determines value, if their condition is good. Light oats contain little nutriment. It pays at this hard-working time ot year to feed good grain and good hay. The poultry manure accumulated during the winter should be carefully gathered, mixed with dry earth and used in the garden. Thus prepared it is better for nearly all vegetables than the much advertised fertilizers for which high prices are asked. The best way to use hen manure is to distribute K broadcast over the surface soil, and work it in, but for special purposes it is sometimes employed with more im mediate effect in the hills and drills, with the seed, bnt separated from di rect contact with it by a little earth. COAL TAR ON SEED CORN. Prairie Farmer. The number of crows is steadily in creasing in the older Western States. In some localities they are almost as dentiful as in New England, and are tecoming troublesome in the corn fields. In going about the country one frequently observes the Eastern devices of frightening them away. These “scare crows” arc of some avail, of course, bat experienced farmers tell us that the tarring of seed corn is a better protection. The best way of tarring is :o place the corn in an old kettle, pouring on the warm tar stirring with a paddle long handled wooden spoon until the kernels are well covered. To fit it for handling dry in plaster. This coat' ing interferes somewhat with using the corn plaster, but where crows and black birds are numerous loss of time in plant ing is far more than compensated lor by the protection nlforded. Some farm ers think coal tnr prevents damage by wire worms and cut worms, but the point is not well settled. Mice certain ly do not liko it, and, when numerous tarring against them is worthy of trial RING THE SWINE. Pralrlo Fanner. When swine are to run on meadow or pasture, experience teaches that it is advlsablo to ring them. It is not trne, as is sometimes asserted, that if allowed to run at largo habitually they will not injure such fields. They may not do it for weeks, and the owner con clude that rings are useless, hat sud denly his hitherto circumspect animals begin to root up the grass and do more damage in a few days than many times the cost of ringing. The safest way is to use rings whenever rooting wonld bo an injury. It is not advisable to use rings the year round, nor on swine of all ajtes. They are needed most in the Bprmg, hut it is proper to keep them on during summer and remove them in autumn, particularly if the liogs are turned on mast, or follow cattle in feed lots or stalk fields. Injury to their fel lows is sometimes avoided by using rings upon mischievous ami vicious swine. Brood sows, in some cases, acquire the habit ot lifting gates anil rooting down fences. A couple of rings eflectuaily euro them of this habit. Thero arc not many devices of this kind, anti some of tlie'm are objection able. Those are best that arc simple, cosily inserted nnd removed, close to the outside, and havo no sharp points to cause the animat pain when once in' place and to keep its nose sore. Ala. State Bondi.

Fishes That Carry Lanterns and Light Up the Ocoan Depths. New York Sun. Many carious forms of fishes have re cently been found in tho deep sea. One fish, dredged from a depth of nearly three miles from the surface, shows a complete modification of structure. At this distance from the surface the pres sure can hardly be realized. It is esti mated that this fish has to contend against a pressure equal to two and a half tons to every square inch of surface. A sealed glass tube, inclosed in a per forated copper covering, has at two miles been reduced to fine powder, while the metal was out ol sliatie. Yet the fishes are so constructed that they withstand tho pressure. Their hotly and muscular systems arc no’, fully de veloped; the bones are permeated with pores nnd fissures. The calcareous matter is at a minimum, and the hones of tiro vertebra; are joined together so loosely that in lifting the larger fieltes out of’the water they often fall apart. The muscles are all thin, and the con necting tissue seems almost wanting. Yet these fishes arc able to dart about and capture prey. Sunlight penetrates only about 1,200 feet lielow the surface of the sea. At ,000 feet the temperature lowers to 10 degrees fahrenbeit, and from about a Low middling., mile from the surface to the bottom, four or five miles, the temperature is about the same the world over—just above freezing. How do thefishesand other forms that live here see? Their eyes are modified as well as their other tarts. The fishes that live 500 feet rom the surface have larger eyes than those in the zone above them, so that they can absorb the faint rays that reach them. In a zone below this many forms with small eyes begin to have curious tentacles, icelers, or organs of touch. Many of these deep sea fishes have special or gans upon their sides nnd heads that are known to possess luminous quali ty. Other organs are considered acces sory eyes, so that the fishes have rows of eyes upon their ventral surfaces looking downward, while near are luminous spots that provide them with light. I One of the largest of these deop-sea torch bearers is a fish six feet long witli a tall dorsal fin extending nearly the entire length of the body. The tips of this fin are luminous, nnd also a broad patch upon its head. Along the sides ot the body are a double row of lumin ous spots. One of the most ferocious of these deep-sea fonns is the clianlio- dus. Its month is fairly overflowing with teeth, that protrude in a most for bidding manner. The fins are all tip ped with flaming spots, while along the dorsal surface extends a row of spots that appear like so many win dows in tho trail, through which light is shining. • The little fishes called Bombay ducks are luminous oven their entire surface, and when numbers are collected to gether they present an astonishing spectacle. One of tho most interesting of these light-givers is the chiasmodus, a fish that attains a length of only thir teen- inches. The top of its head is the principal light-giving organ, and its fins gleam with phosphorescent light. It is not alone remarkable as n light- giver. It has jaws so arranged that it can seize ilsli twieo its sizo and easily swallow them. Its stomach has tho clastic quality of India rubber. It stretches to enormous proportions, and appears like a great transparent balloon hanging under tho fish and containing its prey. The last expedition sent out by France brought to light some remarka ble fonns. The dredge off Morocco brought up from a depth of one and n half a miles fish that appeared to be all head or mouth. It was of mall size, nnd the length of tho mouth was nlxmt four-fifths of tho entire hotly, so that, ifthe entire body had lieen sev ered behind tho bend, it and two or three like it could have been stowed away in the capacious pouch. It prob ably moves very slowly, scooping mu<k and ooze iuto its mouth, gifting out the animal parts and rejecting tho rest. Irregular: « per cents. 120**; I per cents toy, fcuty bonds quiet.

Tbc makers of bogus butter have ex hibited a lock of moral perception in which tlioy have swiftly been imitated by other adulterators. The men who are now charged with sophisticating coffee witli deleterious aulMtanccs at once undertake to justify the practice by asserting, in effect, that competition with dishonesty renders it necessary to be dishonest. The most remarkable fact, however, to that ail the recent de tected adulterations have been of arti cles largely used for food, and that though the use of unwhuirsome and in some instances absolutely poison ous substances is alleged, no qualms appear to have troubled the producers of these frauds as to the con sequence* of their action. Apparently the modern adulterator cares nothing whether he causes the deaths ot any number of his fellow-creatures. He is irepared to use whatever drugs, chom cals ot other substances may moat readily effect his purpose, and lie does Statistics show that tiie largest ntimlier of marriages are by persons under 23 years of ago.
