Gurdon, Ark., May *23.—Ever since the burning of the Negro McCoy at Texarkana the Negroes have been leaving the state. Nearly all threaten to go. Planters have become greatly alarmed over the condition of theirfarmsresalting from this exodus, as they are fearful there will be no one to cultivate their fields.

POPULAR TALKS ON LAW IÍY WM. C. 8PRAGUK, ESq. The Kitrly Colonies — Especially the Plymouth' [No, 2.^ Prior to ir>58, the date of the accesión of (¿uoen EMzabetb, England had not claimed the coast ot th© new continent south of the 44th degree of north latitude, /, e south of a line passing in the neighborhood of th© southern boundary line of New Hampshire. During the reign of (¿ueen Elizabeth there arose an impulse to colonization, infiuenced by a desire to limit the }»ower of Spain in the new world, and to extend the territory of England and the protes-tant religion. This colonization impulse had its first fruit in the colonies of \Trginia and New England, the colony at Jamestown being the first important English colony. For the purpose of a brief study of the early colonies, they may be divided into three classes, the nothern, middle, and southern; the nothern including the Plymouth, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rode Island and New^ Hampshire colonies; the mid*» die including New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware colonies; the southern including Vir* ginia, Maryland, the Carolinas and Georgia. A lew words regarding thd founding ot each. The first per-maoent N»iw England settlement was at Plymouth, in 1620. The pilgrims composing this colony at first had no grant of land. They were intruders, settling on the territory of the Plymouth company, to whom the King had given a charter, covering the continent from ocean to ocean, lying between the 40th and 48th degrees of latitude, a strip of land including all the continent em^ braced between parallel east and west lines running through Philadelphia and the notbornmost point of Maine. In the chap er this is called Ne<v England. The Plymouth company to whom this grant had been rna<le tried to found a col* ony on the coast of Maine, but failed. It then ceased to attempt to found colon es, and contented itself in granting lauds to others who did found them. It finally disposed of the w’hole New England coast, and finally in 1635 surrendered its char, ter to the King. The Pilgrims, as stated, settled upon tlie IMymouth company’s grant as intruders, but in 12(>1, the year after they landed, and in H>2II, they received charters from the l*lymouth company from w’hich, liowever, tlie Crowm witheld an approval which wai necessary to its legality, 'I’he pilgrims, however, continued an assoc ation, making its own laws, even although its government was irregular and unauthorized. d'here were 4l adult males in the company of the pilgrims, and before landing they signed the following conopact: “In the name of God, amen: We, whose names are under written, the loyal subjects of our dread soverign King James, by the grace of God, of Great Britain, France and Ireland, King, defender of faith, etc., having undenaken, for the glory of God, and advancement of the chrs-tian faith, and honor of our king and country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the nothern parts of Virginia, do, by these presents, solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one of another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic, for our better oraering and perservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by viriue hereof, to enact, constitute and frame such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the colony; unto which we promise all due sub^ mission and obedience. In witness whereof, we nave hereunder subscribed our names, at Cape Cod, the 11th day of November, in the year of the reign of our sovereign Lord? King James of England, France and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth, Anna Domini, 1620.” SHAM BATTLE AT WOOD8DALE.

SONS OF COLUMbUS. Since the organization of the American Sons of Columbus at Fort Wayne, Ind, a little over a year ago, that body has without the slightest effort on the part of its founders, grown from a group of twenty men until to-day over 500 yonng, active, enthusiastic Catholics claim membership upon its rolls. Among the different branches that at Peoria, 111, is reckoned as one of the strongest, nearly lOO active members being en^ rolled. The next meeting of the Grand Council will ba held in Peoria next lall, and ev n at this e^rly date, the local members are making extensive p eparations to entertain those who may attend.— Catholic Cltizoa PURc Vi^TER. It Is Hard to Obtain, but Nature Furntsbes Much of It. Impure streams that fl«jw throuo-h rich agricultural and densely piopulated reg-ions are apparently purified by dilution from springs along the banks and the inflowing smaller streams of less impure water. The by-products of chemical factories that are thrown into streams, and which are neither removed by chemical action nor by sedimentation, are frequently so diluted in a few miles flow that the water becomes harmless, although at the factories it may be a strong antiseptic. Streams become purified to the greatest extent, however, by a process of sedimentation, which, in its> origin, is largely influenced by chemical action. This takes place as the velocity of the current diminishes, when much of the insoluble matter subsides, removing with it organic matter that would remain in suspension or solution for many days. Along slowly running streams can be seen in summer organic accumulations on stones, laid down by sedimentation. A careful study of the various natural processes of purification has led Dr. Percy F. Frankland, of England, to the conclusion that not only is sedimentation the principal cause of the natural removal of decaying organic matter from river water, but that it is also the principal cause of the partial disappiearance of germs. The latter ia of great hygienic importance in both natural and artificial purification of water. But nature does not completely remove organic matter and micro-organisms from river water. The distance required for a reasonable separation of the former in our American streams is generally not more than fifteen or twenty miles, and often much less. The Hudson river, which receives the sewage of Troy, becomes reasonably free of its organic matter in the six or eight miles flow to the city of Albany. But owing to the small size of some of the English streams, like the rivers Severn, Tee and Wear, and the great population on their banks, the waters remain unfit for use many miles below the points of contamination, and the royal commissioners concluded that there is not a river in all England sufficiently long to free itself thnnigh natural agencies of even a moderate amount of sewage. The self-purification of water in streams is no guarantee that it is wholesome at any distance below the place where it is certainly contaminated with products of the human body, for although the organic matter and even the germs may bo largely removed it is unsafe to drink water for any length of time that contains even a few inftictious bacteria. When river w-ater has once been polluted with excrementitious washing from diseased patients it should never be used directly or from city water works without due consideration of its nature and the possibility of its producing disease. Nature also purifies water to a considerable extent in freezing, and the product deserves our attention, for there is a rapidly increasing demand for ice in the United States, where we are already cutting some twenty-five million tons annually. Those who frequently examined ice and have followed Tyndall, Cramer, Leone, Fraenkel, Engel-mann, Pengra, Prudden and others im their investigations know that water is only partially purified in freezing. The freezing proecss removed for Pengra only from twenty to fifty per cent, of the organic matter, forty per oent. of' the organic salts, and about ninety per cent, of the micro-organisms. The diminution of bacteria in water In freezing ia owing lar*gely to their destruction, instead of expulsion. But some species of bacteria have great power of withstanding cold, and the bacillus of typhoid fever has been found in ioe several months after its formation; and there are many other cla.sses of germs that cannot be destroyed by freezing alone. When such impure ice is melted the living germs regain their activity, and, if pathogenic, are capable of producing disease. Impure snow water is also sometimes (^trimental to health. Some years ago Dr. Charles Smart, of the United States army, traced the cause of a mountain fever to the meltr ing snow of tke Rooky mountain streams and inferred that the germs of this typho-malarial fever were brought down from the atmosphere by snow, re-■aained frozen during winter, and then fAssed into the streams in an active eonditiou when the snow melted in May, June and July. It is frequently the case that impure ice is the agent of transmitting typhoid and other fevers. —Engineering Magazine. ^ —Not only in our own cormtry, ia France, Germany Russia, and other nations the use of cellulose for ship armor has been introduced, and, as an iUnstration of its effectiveness, one of the Danish warships was equipped recently with a 'belt of the material, and a shot fired at it tore a hole away through the whole vessel, the action of the water on the cellulose, however, closing the hole up very soon, letting in but a few gallons of water. In ordinary manufacture for realizing this result the article is the ground fiber of the cocoanut which has been treated for the removal of the glutinous associations. |lt has the appearance of a brownish meal, and its peculiar value is that, upon contact with water, its tendency is to swell quicklj, rendering an oriihse or hole made by the pouring in of water as tight as need be in a short time.

It has    judit    lally deckle*.! that it is libelous to speak of a Va.wj’-er as a ‘^hvster," nud y a it ha.s fLixav been 4/v»-ulIy / deUrmuic*t exactly what a '“shyster" is. In the slang of popular contempt the word has usually been applied to a tricky, unfair and unscrupulous lawyer; a fellow of stratagem and deceit, who gambles with lies and perjuries for a fee; a creature void of conscience, who, for money, glorifies the guilty side, and, in the language of scripture, “Taketh reward against the innocent;” an unscrupulous hireling “casting firebrands, arrows, and death" at anything or anybody to gain a case, without the excuse of madness for doing it. A lawyer-like effort is now being made in Chicago to give the woi*d “shyster" a limited and special meaning, and to apply it only to those irregular pleaders who practice in the.courts of justices of the pieace without having been admitted to the bar. The illegal methods adopted by the justices in some of those courts having been exposed by a lawyer in a lecture, professional and public discussion was aroused, and the whole wickedness conveniently fastened upon those self-appointed advocates who have never been admitted to the bar; or, in the classic language of one of the justices, ‘‘the men of the ‘shyster’ class, the men who defend prisoners in my court without having a license to practice law." This was turning the whole subject to the left oblique, for the pokit in issue was the shystering of the courts and not the character of the unlicensed bar. Whether or not a barrister is a “shyster” depends entirely upon his own character and not at all upon his license. There is an aged superstition still believed in, that admission to the bar ts a sort of sacrament, like baptism, confexTing grace and wisdom by force of a diploma, an error that has done much wrong, besides making fools of men. Some of the most accomplished shysters that I have ever known have been lawyers of high standing at the bar, and such lawyers abound in history. Lord Coke was a lawyer of some standing ”in the profession, but in his practice at the bar he was a “shyster,” especially in the office of attorney general, where in the prosecution of persons charged with crime he was unscrupulous and unfair, ready, and sometimes eager, to take reward against the innocent. Lord Bacon, I believe, had his diploma and was considered a lawyer in his day, but as counsel for the crown in the trial of Lord Essex, he proved him.self a “shyster.” putting false meaning upon facts, perverting the testimony, reviling the prisoner, and twisting the truth out of symmetry to secure a conviction. To the credit of CJoke, be it said, he was no shyster on the bench, but a just and fearless judge, while Bacon was a shyster even in the great office of lord high chancellor. And in this day, and in our country, we have some licensed shysters eminent at the bar, and there are some of them on the bench, which is a much more serious matter. Diplomas confer neither knowledge nor wisdom, although they do create castes, which, by the way, was the original design of a license to practice law. To require a man to obtain a license to earn a living at anything is a usurpation by government of a power to divide the people into classes and put fines and penalties upon industry. I cannot think of any justification for it except in the case of doctors and drug sellers, and I am not sure that it is justifiable even there.— Open Court._ FLUCTUATIONS OF SOCIETY. “Tk© Sole-leather of To-day, th© Plumed Hat of To-morrow.” There is always a class of persons here which is called distinctively society, but H is not a class of noble families of hereditary ascendancy. It is constantly changing, and the sole-leather of to-day is the plumed hat of to-morrow. It is imitative and puts on pretty airs of grandeur and an amusing smirk of superiority, but it is neither grand or superior. Yet, again, it is all harmless. An old directory tells the secret, and, as the fine society itself would say, gives this pretty grandeur away. The directory is a ruthless herald’s office. Yon start from my Lady Disdain in the opera-box, fiashing with diamonds and shining with cloth of gold, a little too loud in her voice, a little too splendid in her dress, the amiable dupe of novels and of ignorance, and you soon arrive, in the inexorable directory of other years, at the source of the magnificence — the prosperous butcher and baker and can'-dlestick-maker, the tailor of his day, the fashionable shoemaker. These are the idle rich for whom Mr. Gladstone asks whether nature has provided a place. Plainly she has. Her© it is in this opera box, in yonder car-' riage, in this little palace of the bonbbn architecture. But day after to-morrow the good people in the gallery will come down and sit in the boxes. Th© l^ods will descend, and they will driv© home* to the bonbon palace instead of walking home to the modest flat, as they do now. It is a grandeur of wealth, and, happily, of a wealth which is not entailed, and is therefor© always fl3ring‘ away, always distributed, and giving us a fresh nobility every year, tasting, as it were, of the soiL — Harper’s Magazine. —A Remedy.— When I am sick and blue.

Joseph Grandelmyer, a well-known mining man of Nevada, has passed through many startling experience© during a residence of t'veiity-eight years iu the far west, but is, perhaps, the only man who can boast of having a round baker’s dozen of deadly tarantulas for bedfellows and svirviving the t-errible experience without material in-juiw. It happened a number of years ago. but even now it canses cold shivers to chase up Mr. Grandelinyer's spinal column when his mind reverts to that particular event. However, he was induced to rel'ate the inciilent. “In 1804 I came to San Francisco,” said the gentleman, ‘’and with the hopefulness of j*outh determined to make my fortune. I had a little money saved up. but was a raw tenderfoot, and whatever I put my money into failed to pan out. Finally I concluded to strike out for Nevada. It was a new section of country then, that had been explored to a very limited extent, and when I m*ade known my intention many and urgent were the requests for me to refrain from being so foolish as to encounter dangers in such a wild and aK most unknown country. Nothing' daunted, however, and not allowing-myself to be dissuaded from my purpose, one day in the summer of 1864,j after inducing three acquaintances to! join me, I set out for the land of sag©, brush. My particular object in goingi was to better my fortune by any method, I could. Two of the partj»- were pro^ pectors and the fourth, a Dr, Heath,, went along to spy out a good locationi for a hog ranch. ” “Well, it would be wearisome to explain all the incidents connected with the trip, including the streams w©. forded, the mountains we climbed, and the many obs2acles we surmounted, bn% after crossing the Sierra at Walker*» Pass we found ourselves in Owens valley, which is now in Invo county. Dual» was approaching, and when, after riding a distance in th© teeth of a cold‘ wind, we found ourselves at a desertedi adobe hut by tke roadside, we halted.^ unpacked and unsaddled our anímala., and prepared to camp for the night» There was feed for the horses in abundance, and while one staked them out. the others began preparations for supper and made the beds ready. friends preferred sleeping un«ier a larg© oak tree near, but I chose a spot adjoining the old adobe house, where I spread. my blankets close to the wall, where the wind would not reach me. After a hasty meal we all retired to our respective bed.s on the ground, and readily dropped off to sleep. “I presume it wais within an hour of daybreak when I awoke with a suddea start. A peculiarly dreadful feeling, worse than any nightmare, took possession of me. I felt paralyzed, and wa«i afraid to stir. Thei*e was something» moving over my face. It was not a larga object, but as it moved about the trail left seemed to scorclt my face. I felY the thing traverse my faee from the lef^ eye down over my nose and mouth. Then it crossed to the other side and ea^ plored in the region of my ear. Then lY was gone. “I knew it was- not a snake glidingj over my face, but some animal much smaller, though what it was I was ut-tevly able to conjecture. I was wid© awake, of coxyse, but such an uncomfortable horror held me fast that I wa* unable to move a muscle, and gazed helplessly up at the stars that twinkled so merrily in the dark vault above as if Í in mockery at my situation. Once I tried to call out to my companions, but not a sound could I muster. I lay there rigid as a log, maybe for one minute, j maybe for five, when I again knew that! the same thing or something like it waa, on my hand, which rested outside thej blanket, and a cold chill ran up my arm. and through mv whole body. Still I: was absolutely powerless to move a limb, and involuntarily closed my eyea,i almost expecting to feel them closed in' death, so dreadful and indescribable was the sensation. Next I knew it waa climbing up over my throat, then to my chin and about my nose. An irresistible impulse caused me to open my right eye, and I saw by the dim light the fieryi eyes of a big tarantula looking into mine, with his hairy body resting on my face, not two inches away. “Knowing that death, or at least painful injury, might result if I moved my, body, I immediately dropped the eyelid! and had the satisfacti<an of feeling th© crawling spider crawl over that eye to my forehead and into my hair, where it prepared a nest and finally' settled down, no doubt as snugly and comfortably•©■ a bug in a rug. You may think yon can imagine my feelings, but you cannot. For a fxill half hour, 1 should, judge, I endured all the suspense and torments that come to most mortals in a lifetime, and allowed another spider to crawl up my leg. not knowing at what time I would féel these blaok fangs sink into my flesh. “But, thank God, that did not happen, or I should probably not now ^ alive. Ages after that, so it seemedi Dr. Heath arose, and, after dressings came to see if I was awake. I whispered to him the particulars of my plight, and in my hair, which had been standing on end for I don’t know how long, he discovered and at once killed one of the tarantulas, an immense fellow, fully three inches long.
