on finding that he was discovered, start

thereof in pursuit The fellow was fol
lowed so closely that he dropped the load
m front of the store and darted up the
flight of stairs over Harty's, making his
way down the other flight into the back
yard. Policeman Blackwelder and a
crowd started in pursuit, with the own
er of the packages in the lead. At this
instant Policeman Stevens took in the
situation, as he thought, and also start
ed m pursuit of the foremost man who
was trying to catch thenegro.the whole
crowd going around the First Presby
terian church yard square. Stevens
finally hied off his pistol to make his
man stop, but without effect. On
everybody went, until the thief made
the distance between himself and the
crowd so great that he was lost to sight
and the chase was given up.
Another Cockiug Main North ta.ro.
lina and Georgia.
The Atlanta Constitution, of Wed
nesday, says: "We learned on yesterday
ot a main between the famous shawl
neck cocks, of Georgia, and the clary
eye, of North Carolina. These cocks
have met before in hotly-contested
mains, and the shawl-necks nave come
off winners." We may stop here to say
that the "clary-eye of North Carolina'
is altogether a mythical bird. There is
here a strain of cocks of which Mr.
Edward Glavin, of this city, is the pa
tron, called the flary eye. It is as game
a bird as ever fluttered but the strain
is not numerous, and they never met
the shawl-necks in a main. Again : We
had hardly supposed it would be neces
sary to state it again, but for the truth
of history we repeat that the shawl
necks have never whipped the flary
eyes nor any other lot of North Caro
lina cocks in a main. In the main which
was arranged between the two States,
to take place in Charlotte last April, the
Georgians backed down and paid the
forfeit like men. The Constitution
continues: "The North Carolinians,
claim to have improved their breed very
handsomely, and are now confident
they can get away with the Georgia bovs
It is said, indeed, that they have been
breeding from the shawl-necks them
selves." There is no shawl-neck blood
in any of the birds which Holt and Ar
lington will enter in the coming main.
Their stock consists of Sim Jenkins
grays, red quills, Irish reds and cripple
Our esteemed contemporary says fur
ther: "It is said that the main is ar
ranged for the 27th of April, and that it
will last four or five days. The main
will be a very hotly contested one if it
is fought, and will bring hundreds of
sporting men to the city. The figures
for the main are put at $5,000 includ
ing the wagers on the several fights."
The Festival of Purlin.
Although the festival of Purim be
gins to-day, the Jews in many parts of
the world began to celebrate it on Tues
day night the begining of the feast of
Esther. The feast of Purim derives its
origin from the story of Esther, so beau
tifully told in the Old Testiment, and is
commemorative of the deliverance of
the Jews through her instrumentality
from the hatred of Haman. The date
of this event is set down in the Jewish
chronology' as 2232 years ago, or B. C.
3.:. The feast is preceded by the Fast
of Esther, when the orthodox Jews ab
stain from food and drink from sunset
to sunset in celebration of the three
day's fast of Esther before she present
ed herself before Ahasuerus to defeat
the plot of Hainan. Services are held
in all the synagogues, and the book of
Esther, termed in Hebrew the Megil
lath, is read with appropriate prayers.
Among some of the customs now ex
tinct, save with the most ultra ortho
dox or Polish Jews, is one that indica
ted that forgiveness, is not one of the
virtues of an Israelite's character.
"Whenever the name oLHaman in men
tioned in the reading of the book of
Esther in these synagogues, ot which
there are a number in this country,
the worshippers beat their pews with
their clenched fists, or even with ham
mers with which they provide them
selves, to show their detestations of
Mordecai's enemy, after these 2000
years. This custom is considered as
reprehensible by the congregation of
other synagogues as it would be if per
formed by any Christian church.
On Wednesday and Thursday are
the lesser and greater feasts of Purim.
Purim is considered a day ot lestiviues
and ereneral reioicing. Presents are dis
tributed and masquerade balls and par
ties are given. The Israelites of this
city, as previously stated, will celebrate
the occasion by a grand calico charity
ball, to be given at Metropolitan Hall

SUPERIOR COUKT. -
ThePetfael Case PotpoHed Till Mon
dayThe Jenkln Case frlfedi
-When Judge Kerr took his seat on
the bench yesterday morning and asked
the solicitor if he was ready to proceed
in the case of the State vs. Geo. PetheL
f or murder, set f or a hearing at that
hour, the court room was crowded with
eager faces. The prisoner had already
been brought in, and was sitting quiet
ly in the felon's box. In answer to the
judge's question, the State was an
nounced to be ready for trial, and when
the defendant was called on, Col. Arm
held, of his counsel, read an affidavit
setting forth that certain witnesses,who
were very material to the case, were
absent, from what cause the counsel
did not know, and asking for a contin
uance of the case on this ground. The
affidavit also set forth the facts which
it was proposed to prove by the absent
The solicitor objected to a continu
ance on the ground that the case had
already stood on the dockets for over
twelve months, and had been twice re
moved ; that the State had put itself to
great inconvenience and trouble to have
all the witnesses present. He did not
demand speedy trials in all cases, pre
ferring a sufficient delay to allow of
the removal of the first impressions af
ter a homicide had been committed,
which nearly always judged the accused
more harshly than he deserved, but
thought the delay had been long enough.
To this Col. Armfield replied that a
special order had been procured from
the court in Iredell compelling the wit
nesses to be present at this term of the
court, and he could not tell why they
were not present, except in one instance,
that of a witness named Swink. The
sheriff of Cabarr us.evidently misreading
the name, had returned the paper with
the statement that no such man could be
Judge Kerr: "It is a great pity that
the clerk of Iredell can't write.
Col. Armfield : " May it please your
honor is not exactly the case. It is the
sheriff of Cabarrus who can't read."
Judge Kerr: "Gentlemen, I am op
posed to further delay. I cannot con
tinue the ease, but am willing to hold
it over till Monday, and will issue capi
ases for the witnesses."
The clerk was ordered to issue the ca
piases, and the sheriff directed to have
them delivered to the sheriff of Cabar
rus. Judge Kerr then asked the solicitor
if he was prepared to try any other
capital cases, and after some delay it
was announced that
Tilt: CASE OF ISAAC JENKINS, COLORED,
charged with the murder of Jim Ross,
colored, in the city ot Charlotte, on the
17th of October, 1878, could be taken up.
Messrs. Osborne & Maxwell and Judge
Bynum appeared for the accused, and
Solicitor Montgomery represented the
Jenkins was brought into court and
arraigned, and after an hour and a half
spent in selecting a jury, the following
were announced as having been chosen :
J. B. Swan, W. L. Boyd, H. L. Suggs, T.
Y. McConnell, C. B. Hoover, F. W. Ah
ren, W. B. Nisbet, AV. D. Stewart, T. S.
Cooper, II. T. Butler, E. T. Henderson,
and J. F. Johnston.
There were only three or four wit
nesses to the difficulty, all introduced
by the State, and their story may be
briefly summed up as follows: At quite
a late hour of the night the accused
found his wife on the street talking to
Jim Boss, the deceased, and command
ed her to go home, at the same time
charging her with having left two or
three of their children locked up at
home, and with turning the other out of
the house. The wife appealed to another
negro woman, who was standing by, to
prove that she had done nothing of the
kind, whereupon insulting epethets
were applied to the woman by Jenkins,
and upon her hurling back the charges
against him, he struck her. Jim Boss
here interfered, and he and Jenkins got
into a difficulty. Jenkins finally cried
out. "You have cut me," to which Ross
replied, "You have cut me, too." Jenk

down. Here the difficulty ended.
Dr. Gregory, who was called to see
Ross on the following day, testified that
he found the skull fractured, and dress
ed the wound. Several weeks after
wards, Ross died. He gave it as his
opinion, that while Ross might have
lived had he carefully followed the
physician's directions, the primary
cause of his death was the wound.
The speeches of the counsel, Messrs.
Osborne and Bynum, for the defence,
and Solicitor Montgomery for the pros
cution, were very brief, the defence sul
mitting to the charge of manslaughter,
and arguing the case from this stand
point, although Judge Bynum, towards
the close of his sieecn, argued that
even manslaughter did not clearly
appear from the testimony.
Judge Kerr charged the jury to re
turn a verdict of manslaughter, and
while they were deliberating over the'
matter in the jury-box, the prisoner's
counsel submitted to this verdict.
The sentence was not pronounced.
It was halt past 5 o clock when the
trial was concluded, and the court ad
journed for the day.

bought the gold dust from L. H. Smart,
found that it was pure brass, came up
yesterday to appear against Smart be
fore the mayor. The trial was had at 1
o'clock. It was shown that Smart and
one or two others have been practicing
this fraud quite extensively in South
Carolina. Th. method, of ,. propeedir.g
seems to have" been to procure from
machine shops or elsewhere a quantity
of brass filings, which were wrapped in
Bmall papers and sold at the usual
price for gold , dust. The assayer,
Col. Cowles, gave"' it as his opinion that
these filings were calculated to deceive
any one not an expert. This gentle
man also had in his possession, while
the trial was going on a package of this
same stuff, which he had just received
from a citizen of Chester by express,
being valued at &150, but- which
in reality is not worth twenty-five
Smart was of course recommitted to
jail to await trial by the Inferior Court.
It is learned that he attempted to prac
tice the fraud upon several citizens of
this place, but failed, as thev were not
buying gold at that time. Col. Cowles
is awaiting further returns from South
Carolina and is prepared to count them
out as rapidly as they come in.
A Visage BivAlllng in Yell own e&s
That of a "heathen Chinee," If belonging to one
of our race, can scarcely be described as attractive.
But worse than this. It Is the Index of a disordered
liver, of a liver that needs arousing and regulating.
The remedy is at hand, prompt, efficacious, A
course of Hostetter's Stomach Bitten will expel the
misdirected bile from the blood and divert It Into
the proper channel, open the bowels.remove the dys
peptic symptoms which invariably accompany bil
iousness and counteract the raploly developing
tendency to dangerous congestion of the liver,
which must always exist when the skin and whites
of the eyes assume this yellow hue. The pains
through the right lower ribs, side and shoulder
blade, the nausea, furred state of the tongue, and
unpleasant breath which indicate liver complaint,
in short all its disagreeable concomitants are soon
remedied by this sovereign corrective, which In ad
dition to its regulating properties is a superb in
vlgorant, and a pure l and jjreeable jnedlcinal
stimulant, appetizer and nervine. ,

Good cheer for Consumptives.
There is a form of consumption which was better
Indicated by the old fashioned name of "decline."
It Is the dreaded scourge of some parts of the
Southern States, claiming more victims every year
than are swept away by the most terrible visitations
of the yellow fever. The malady arises from the
Inability of the patients' system to take up and as
similate the nourishing ingredients of the food
that is ea(en. Some years ago the medical profes
sion with remarkable unanunlty, agreed that Cod
Liver Oil contained the most concentrated and
easily absorbed elements of nutrlUon. If the nau
seous taste and smell of the oil could be avoided it
would unquestionably be the most sovereign reme
dy that ever shed a healing blessing on the human
race. And these repulsive properties are success
fully removed by the union of pure Cod Liver Oil
with the Hypophosphites of Lime and Soda in
Scott's Emulsion. The combination is a most ele
gant one, pleasant as sweet milk In flavor, conge
nial to the stomach, and acting directly as a power
ful yet gentie tonic of the brain and nervous sys
tem. A Legitimate Triumph In Medicine.
Dread and despair fall upon the community
when a terrible epidemic like the cholera or yel
low fever, suddenly desolates our homes: yet, all
the while, a more insidious, but no less fatal foe,
enters thousands of households every year and
carries off the flower of the family in the early flush
of manly youth and budding womanhood. People
call it consumption, or "decline." H is not, in
most cases, the tubercular phthisis or consumption
of the lungs, whieh is the peculiar malady in cli
mates like those of the British Islands and New
England, but a general decay or arrest of the vital
processes of nutrition. All the doctors agree that
there is no remedy for this but Cod Liver Oil but
they are constanUy met by the obstacle or inability
on the part of the patient to swallow or retain it
This repulsion Is entirely overcome by Scott's
Emulsion of the Oil with the Hypophosphites of
Lime and Soda which Is agreeable to the taste.and
an unequalled nutrient and tonic for the body nerve
Ease Attainable by the Rheumatic.
Yes, although they may despair of relief, it is
attainable by rheumatic sufferers, for there is a
remedy which carries off, by means of increased
activity of the kidneys important channels for
blood purification the acrid element to which
pathologists the most eminent attribute the painful
symptoms a theory completely bome out by urin
ary analysis. The name of this grand depurent is
Hostetters, a preparation likewise celebrated as a
remedy for constipation, which causer contamina
