Terrible to aged at Enterprise we learn by private letter irom Enterprise says the Mobile Tribune Juno 26, that a most fearful tragedy was enacted in that town on the night of the 24th. It appears that of the evening in question n or. William John Sou went into the House of a Mau by Tho name of woolly. He had Noi been there Long before some dispute arose which terminated in an affray in which woolly Drew a pistol and shot Johnson wounding him severely but not to such an extent As to Render him helpless at the time. Johnson As soon to he a shot succeeded in getting Possession of an axe which was in the Vicinity and Rushing upon woolly struck him a terrible blow killing him instantly. Johnson who was very much enraged and probably was hardly conscious of the crime he was committing then attacked and killed woolly a wife and baby and also severely wounded one of his daughters who however it is supposed succeeded in making her escape end giving the alarm. Johnson s wound which to received it the commencement of the difficulty is of a very serious character and he is not expected to recover. This terrible affair has created the most intense excitement and commotion in the Community of Enterprise where both the parties were Well known. Homble muh Deb of a Mother by Hue ,y., june 29.�?on tuesday last in Oneonta Otsego county Victor Beach son of the late Samuel b. Beach murdered Bis Mother by shooting her first in the head and then in the body. He next shot himself. The Ball entering his right Eye and passing out of the ear. When neighbors reached the House mrs. Beach Lay upon the floor just breathing her last and. Her son near her the blood oozing from his Skull. He soon roused up and began to talk saying that he was drunk and mad that he meant to kill his Mother und then destroy his own life that on returning Home he went up stairs and got a revolver belonging to his brother Oscar Beach and came Down stairs and found his it Mother engaged in making a fire in the stove and that As soon As he got a Good Opportunity he fired the shot at her head and the other v after she fell upon the floor Aud then made the attempt upon his own life Aud was sorry he did not succeed. Victor Beach is a cripple having been accidentally shot some years ago the Ball reaching Tho Region of the spine and there remaining. He has no use of his right hand his right Arm and leg Are withered Aud his whole physical and mental organization fearfully injured. Mrs. Beach was a most estimable woman and did All that a Mother could for the poor wretch who has taken Lier life. She was about fifty years of age. A a Mugg Gge or a a a a series of unfortunate irishman was recently arrested on the charge of Petit larceny alleged to have been committed nearly a year. Ago. His accuser in swearing out a warrant stated that he had stolen Ono window Shade. The Deputy clerk of the polio court a teutonic gentleman understood him to say undershirt and so filled out the warrant. The prosecuting attorney having heard something about a window in connection with the matter informed the bewildered prisoner that he was charged with stealing a window shutter. A a i sole no window shutter a said he. Prosecuting attorney looking again at the warrant a did you steal an undershirt then Quot Quot a prisoner very much confused a a no ill swear i stole no undershirt neither a prosecuting attorney very red in the face and addressing the witness a a what did you say this Mon stole from you a a a he bought a window Shade from me and would ii t pay for the Case was commercial. �?�1 1,1 a i a i i in Mobile recently Estelle Lalande a coloured woman sued the Spring Hill Railroad company to recover damages for refusing to permit her As a passenger to ride in their cars. The Case was tried by Justice loom a who after hearing the Case decided in favor of the defendants on the ground that Tho privileges Aud accommodations of passengers while being transported Are subject to such rules and regulations As the Carrier May think proper to make. The following is the statement of the Case As made by the judge in delivering the opinion of the court it appeared that by Tho rules and regulations of said company seats were prepared on Tho platforms of the cars for coloured per sous Aud they were required to stand or take seats on the outside and the Whites to take the inside. Tho Whites were charged full Price and the Blacks half Price. The object and reason of this Rule As proved was alone for the better accommodation of All parties Aud to preserve the patronage and business of Tho company. A Young and handsome married woman loft Springfield for Hartford the other Day with a Young Man hot her husband. An elderly female who saw them in Tho cars informed Tho woman so husband immediately. To went in Pursuit and overtook them in. Wetter Bury conium and found that Tho gentleman was his wife a own brother who had happened to Call unexpectedly on her just As Sho was about starting with Hor husbands consent to visit her friends in Waterbury and concluded to accompany her. The transit of Venus. This Imp taut astronomical phenomenon which is to take place on the 8th of december 1874, and again on the ctr of december 1882, already begins says Talignani to engage the thoughts of living astronomers As those of the last Century which occurred on this 5th of june 1761, and on the 3d of june 1709, engrossed the attention of the past generation. The transit of Venus Over the i suns disc affords a direct observation of the plan Etc to Node or Point where its orbit cuts the Elliptic an element which is of great a tie for the correction of astronomical tables but it is chiefly important for the determination of the suns Parallax or Angle under which an observer situated in the Centre it of the Sunj Quot might see the Earth a radius. One Side and two More elements of the six constituting a Triangle Are requisite in order to determine the other three hence considering a right angled Triangle having Tho Vertex of its right Angle in the Centre of Tho Earth one of the sides forming that Angle being the terrestrial radius Aud the other a Lino that joins the Centre of the Earth with that of the Sun it follows that As we know the radius and right Angle the third element we want in order to determine Tho distance of the two centres is precisely the Angle Mado by the latter and the Hypotenuse drawn from the Centre of the Sun to the extremity of the Earth a radius and that is precisely the parallel. Without knowing that to cannot therefore know our own distance from the Sun Anc consequently by Kepler s third Law Tho distances of the planets either. Such then is the importance of that element that encute in 1835, recalculated it from the transit of Venus in 1769, and found it to be 8 58 Sec. Leverrier finds this value too Small on theoretic grounds a and states it at 3 95 Sec. By the Aid of Tho opposition of the planet Mars which occurred in 1862 under remarkably favourable circumstances a combination of observations simultaneously made at the Cape of Good Hope and at Palkowa the Parallax was found to be 8 964 Sec. Pau Walki of Berlin finds it Only 8 86 Seo. From these various results it is Clear that there is an uncertainty As to the value of the Pur Allex amounting to nearly three tenths of a second a Eon i Sid Erable figure in such an enormous distance l As that existing Between the Sun and the Earth and it is hoped that the coming transits of Venus will be attended with circumstances favourable enough to determine the exact value sought i 5 yellow fever in the fearful picture of the ravages of yellow fever is Given in the following extract from a private letter i write to let you know that i am still living although god Only knows How Long such May be the Case. I am writing from the City of the dead. You will see that 10,000 persons have been carried off last month Tho average in town being 200 per Day. Every engine Driver that i have had at port Louis has been or i at the present moment Down with the accursed fever. I have this morning 112 men absent from the same cause. Tjie whole service and Island Are paralysed and the doctors overworked and out of their a its. A Batch of doctors from India is expected next mail but the ravage before then May be fearful. I have been struck Down again with a severe attack on the 22d of april making Tho third time. The doctor took Strong measures with me Aud i did not become delirious. The attacks Are sudden. I was taken ill in a moment in my office Aud had to be assisted to a Carriage. In four Days i was off my bed again but i cannot disguise Tho fact that these repeated attacks Regni arly every fifteenth Day weaken me and the fever May get stronger hold the next time. To Day is the title for the fourth attack. I feel All right at present. No person appears to be free. A a Mauritius Oriole of France is off the East Ern coast of Africa 480 Miles from Madagascar. A a --flrr7i�? a Bandit he pontifical troops have recently succeeded in securing a valuable prize no less a personage than a brigand Queen styled a Loisella a the partner of redoubtable Andreozzi who reigns supreme among the vols Ian Hills. This a Loisella a before she took to the Hills was serving maid to Tho wife of tha Panicci governor of a Paese called son Lorenzo who was carried off in March last by the brigands and being found unable to walk was for three weeks borne about the mountains in a chaise a porters. During his period of detention at the instigation of Loisella who dictated to him the a items panic i was required to Send to his Vry Ife a list of her jewry with a letter begging her to hand to the bearer the precious articles named As a portion of his Ransom and an indispensable condition of his being set free. With the exception of a Pearl necklace which had been presented by the Signora Panicci to her daughter on her marriage and which was instantly missed by the observant Loisella the whole of the required jewels were or dint by forwarded. Seizing the glittering ind precious things Loisella proceeded to adorn herself with them and thus arrayed presented herself before he late master demanding of him derisively for whom he took her. A you Are Loisella he replied a my wife a a no a answered Loisella pointing to the jewelry a i am your having been captured with a double barrelled gun in her hands Loisella will probably have sentence of death passed Ouber but will certainly not of executed even though she should be unsuccessful in decoding Andreozzi or others of her lovers info the hands of the authorities.

A Bishop Philadelphia ago makes the following pertinent and just remarks Lipon this much beloved prelate Bishop Stevens a Man of gentle Christian Virtues comes Back after a Long absence abroad with health we Trust permanently restored and a tog i for to is a old Man of usefulness before him. He has been abroad at an eventful period when the actual storm of civil strife in his own country was Over but when the swell of the aves had not subsided and the wrecks and broken spars and mutilated forms were still floating hideously on Tho surface. He is a meditative and observant and kind hearted Milf. Never during the War was his voice heard on the Side of aggression. In fact so tolerant was he As to attract suspicion and arouse prejudice among the blatant subordinate clergy the Loyal vestry men and their natural allies the Strong and weak minded women. He must. Have seen How Clear is the duty of All Christian men since the War ended not Only to Aid m political reconstruction on kind and Liberal terms but in social reconciliation. No Man a better than Bishop Stevens can in his own appropriate sphere and with his restored bodily and intellectual health now promote this great result. Lot him speak to his clergy its a Bishop has a right to speak. Let him Tell them to preach the gospel of peace to the South for he knows they have done Little of. The kind for the last five or six years. Let him exhort them and through them their restless Flooks the Loyal lambs and ewes to think of other objects of Charity than enfranchised negroes. Let him purge out of his Church and its example will Tell on other protestant denominations the spirit of politics Tho still More accursed spirit of free tonal animosity and Yfe May then Hope to see this great Branch of the Church Catholic bearing those loaves and Flowers and fruits it onco bore i the episcopal Church of America As it wan under the gentle genial control of Whito and Dehon and Bowen and Elliott. june 15 correspondent of a now York journal mentions a Rumor that Tho Spanish mail Steamer which had just arrived brought out a Royal decree declaring Freo All coloured children born of slave parents on and after the 1st of july and that after that Date any Slavo May obtain his or her Liberty for Tho sum of two Hundred Ancl fifty dollars. It is Rathor sin Tilar if the Captain general of Cuba has received any such Deoreo that he leaves it to to published by a Street Rumor. The enormous interest involved in slave institutions in Cuba will Mako Tho Spanish government of which Cuba is the richest jewel latitious and gradual in the change of institutions
