,Thc Montgomery, Ala., Advertiser *
! has an article on "Poiuts about llattle- 1
snake*." IV o have noven aeou this I
reptile at largo but the accounts which f
we iiave at!en heard from those who '
liave had an opportunity ;f observing 1
its habits agree with the experience of
the guutlonian referred to by the Adver- i
iistr which says : 1
"Few people,' said the gentleman, (
"understand the habits of rattlesnakes,
consequently there is a good deal of un
• aieessary fear regarding them, la the
( firat place, a rattlesnake will not chase
you, and in the second place it will not
attack you unless you cume upon it in 1
sueh a way that it cannot escape without 1
attacking. If a rattlesnake is disturbed I
it usually sounds its rattle and makes 1
off, but if you conic upon it suddenly 1
aud it lias to fight, it will coil itself up, '
poiae its head and strike at you down- I
ward. The fang in turned up under ( '
(be upper jaw, aud as it strikes this is j I
thrown out aud cuts into the tlcsh It
is as sharp as a razor, and goes through '
a thin boot like a ste.l blade." '
The Advertiser gives it as the opiuion
«f its informant that whiskey is the best
artiaU for the poison of the bite of the
rattlesnake. We copy what it has to
say on this point.
"The mat: who is bitten by a rattle
snake should have whiskey poured iuto
him until he is too drunk to stand, and |
be should be kept druuk for two or three
iu;a. The one poison counteracts the
other. If he can't be made drunk there
is .little hope lor hiui. I have seen it
stated that a bottle of turpentine turned
np on the bite will draw the poison out
in the shape of a greenish cloud that
will float up ir.to the white fluid, but 1
ha»« never seen a test made of that.
Live flesh will also draw out the poison,
it it said, aud 1 know that in sotue plac
es, where a person is bitten by a rattle
snake, the first thing done is to kill a
ehiokeo, cut it iu half, and while the
flush is still quivering put it warm to the i
It is the common belief that whiskey
IS an antidote foi the poison of the rattle
snake, but so high an authority as Dr.
Weir Mitchell has denied this report.
.He says spirits is merely a stimulus to
carry men over the time of weakness.
For a second stage there is little to do
to ease pain and wait. In the liEi'ttitr
er for June lo we had an editorial on
this subject iu which we gave tho gist
of the results of Dr. Mitchell's investi
gations on this subject;
We fiad room to repeat the following
extract from our former article.
Mitchell contends that no reliable
antidote for the bite of a poisonous suake
is known. The proper treatment, he
asserts, is to "tie a ligature around the
part bitten, and at once lay open the
wound in the line of the fang mark. It
is useless to apply a local dressing .save
Co put the part in hot water to provoke
oopious bleeding. If within reach of
full help an clastic baed-igc should be
put around the whole limb, after Es
inarch's plan for bloodless operations,
until time is given to deal with the part
bitten. This would be better than a
were ligature aloue, which causer swell
ing beyound it. After ligation every
■Sort should be made to squeeze out
the nenom from the wound. Next, al
cohol should be given uutil the heart is
excited, when the ligatures may be loos
ened a little, so as to admit to the gen
eral circulation a little of '.he poison,
which soon or late must reach it. When
the heart begins to fail the ligature
should be tightened again more stimu
lants given, and so the poison which re
main may be fought m detail.
As wo stated in our last issue we
were unvoidably prevented from experi
encing the pleasure of being at German
ton on the 4th. An extract from a full
report of the celebration in tho Greens-
Jjoro Workman says:
"The Fourth of July, tho completion
of a railroad to a certain point, the arri
val of tho first train, a turn out with flags
and music, lemonade, pies and ging. r
bread—these things combined stir the
patriotism of ibis county from the bottom
and nearly every body oouieu to the fure.
One gentleman, who gave bis age as 34,
told our imormant yesterday that though
he lived only two and a half miles away,
be had nevor boen to Gcrmanton before."
The Church of Home is far from be
ing on tbe wane. It is true the tempor
al power of the Pope has boen reduced "
ro the city of Rome, but he would still
dictate to his faithful throughout the '
earth on political doctrines. Indeed as
a writer has eloquently remarked, "Let
ltoine, stripped of her last penny and
her last acre, go forth to the world as a a
mendicant and a martyr, who knows
but the nations forgetful of the wrongs
they suffered at her hands, and pitying
bur misfortunes, may yet be seized with
a fit of penitence, and laad her back in j
triumph to her seat of nuuieiit domin
ion '• t
The Pope has just demonstrated his |
interference in the political opinons of his
faithful by excommunicating Dr. Mc-
Glynn of St Shephcn's church, New -
York. The circumstances of this case
are very clearly stated in an editorial in i
the Lenoir To/nc from we copy |
"Lust fall the United Labor Party
nominated Henry George for Majorat' .
that city. Dr. McGlynti was a stroug |
personal friend of Henry George, a Pro
testant, and a believer iu his laud tlieo- |
ry, ami ho supported him for the May
oralty. He mi.de a speech or two and
gave bis influence in his behalf, although
he did uot preach these views from the '
pulpit. Iu the midst of the campaign 1
Archbishop Corrigan wrote to him aud
forbade him to take any further action
in that direction anil he refused to obey.
About the tune of the election I'r. Mc
tilynn was suspended as a priest at St.
Stephen's because of his disobedienoc.
The pri-ist protested and declared that
lilia Archbishop had no right to go be
yond spiritual matters and to dictate to
hiui what Ins politics should be. * 1 A
great majority of thinking, conservative
| people who altogether disbelieve in the
land doctrine taught by Dr. McGlyun,
still sympathize with him in his unequal

are erroneous, ho is a free-born Ameri
can citizen and has a right to his opin
, ions and ought not to be bullied out of
them by the Pope of Home, a foreign
po'enato, who has no right to dictate to
any American how he shall vote or how
he shall not vote. Such a strong pro
. test has gone to the Pope from liishnps
. of his own church and from all classes
, of Catholics against this cruel act of

"Mr Tucker sprang to his feet and,
