Tlie Baltimore Sun of Weduesday says
there have been rumors afloat in that city
for several days that the Clyde syndicate
which controls the Richmond and Dan
ville Railroad system, have been figuring
to make an alliance with steamship lines,
so as jo establish permameut connection.
The Central Railroad W)f peorgia, as is
kuQWn has its steamship service, and the
Clydes hold the balance of power in the
York River and one or two other- water
lines that connect with their railroads
A Richmond & Danville official, in con
versation, said that the matter of water
connections has been informally discuss
ed, ami he-believes it will be settled the
current year. The syndicate wants wa
ter communication .between its roads and
the North, etc. .Traffic aIianceis now
had, bnt the Clyde policy is tocontro! 51
per ceut. of 100 in the stock of corpora
tions it meets iu trade compact ; 49 per
cent, dpes not please the Clydes.
The reports have named the old relia
ble Merchants and Miners' Transporta
tion Colnpany of Baltimore, with its doz
en steamships and $2,000,000 of capital
stock, as the corporation which the Cly de
syndicate would like to buy their way
into. Mr. George J, Appold, president
of the steamship company and one of its
large stockholders, recently, in answer to
direct questions as to how much of truth
there was in the statements that the syn
dicate were43gming to control his 11 uie,
said: "There is positively nothing feasi
ble in anything that has transpired. ! I
do not like to talk about it, because some
of our people might believe there is real
Iv something in the rumors afloat. Mr.
Clyde called to see us and 'asked if an
amount of the stock a large amount
could be bought. He was told that 5 we
-are not so positively weddd to the old
line that some price' would not buy its
control.- Almost all property can lie
reached at some price, I assure you, and
that isxall there is for me to 'say. There
has nothing feasible transpired."

in due form were begun, and Scoville re-

Scoville proceeded without , interrup

great stress on the proposition that ! nine
insane men out often know the difference
between right and wrong, and for that
reason conceal their plans; that tlie bene-
fitof the doubt should attach to jthej plea
of insanity when raised iu this case, with
tue same lorce as wneu raised in: connec

Davidge then took his position in

with a disclaimer of any intention to
make a set speech, but expressed his
simple desire to render the jury
what aid he could in their present
solemn duty.
The time had now come in this tn-

There is here gentlemen, (he contin

and consideration. The subiectlof it

1 attempt was short lived, however, and
was Very speedily abandoned, so that
there is now but a single question for
you to determine, and that is theques-
tien of insanity. Iu the progress of
the trial very many vague and gener -

We have heard of crazy men, of men

medicine, and it was necessary tri have

J come to,
here, murder, "murder most foul and

slight degree of intelligence indeed.
It was, gentlemen, in order to make
the question perfectly clear, arid to
abridge your labors so far as to pre
veut you being led astray by tjie in

prosecution asked the court to
state succinctly what constitutes mal-
ice and insanity in legal intent.! The
court has spoken, and it has noi 6Io-

In commenting on the hrst and sec

human 1eing has any degree of intel

that that act is in violation of the law
of the land or wrong; then, no fren

cotton thereby took tire and .was burned
I nP It was a total loss. The three oth

value of the cotton, against the fourth
nartner who owned the narticulnr leer of

"The judge examined the case, and de
cided thus: 'The leg that had the oil ou
it was hurt; the cat could not use that
leg ; iu fact, it held up that leg, and run
with tho other three legB, therefore car
ried the fire to the cotton and are alone
culpable. The injured leg is not to be
blamed. The three partners who owned
the three legs with which the cat rau to
the cotton will pay the whole value of
the bales te the partner who was the
proprietor of the injured leg.'"
Tlie discovery of a deserted city, sixty
miles long, cut out of the rock face of
a winding cliff, rewarded the efforts of
Mr.-Stevenson's Smithsonian Institution
exploring party during its researches iu
New Mexico and Arizona the past season.
This is by far the most itnporant find yet
made among the ancieut haunts of the
cliff dwellers. Some of the houses con
tain four or five dwellings one ou top of
the other, and on the plateau above cliff
were found many ruins of temples of wor
ship built of well eut square stones. A
com pa risen of the collections of pottery
aud implements gathered in the cliff
houses by the exploring party with those
obtained in the Pueblo villages strength
ens the theory that the Pueblo Indians
are the degenerate dsceudants of the once
powerful race that built the ruined cities
of the plains, and then, retreating before
some more warlike foe, carved out these
singular dwellings on the sheer walls of
dizzy precipices, and found in them it
may be for centuries,fortresses and homes.
Perhaps the hieroglyphic inscriptions
seen by Mr. Stevenson will one day be
deciphered and be found to contain tlie
tragic history of -the wasting away by
the wars and famines of this ill-fated peo
ple who, like the coneys of the Bible,
made the rocks their refuge. News dc Ob

Manners are the shadows of virtues,
the momentary display of those qual
ities which our fellow-creatures love
and respect. ' If then we strive to
become what we strive to apitear,
manners may often be rendered
useful guides to the performance of
our duties. .

We believe it has never gotten in
to the papers, and hence has not be-;
come generally known, that at the
last term of Rowan Superior Court,
held abeut a month age, Mr. W.J.
Best, by counsel, entered formal suit
against his assignees, Messrs. Clyde,
Buford and Logan, to oust them from
possession of the Western NortS
Carolina Railroad. The complaint
is very voluminous and the assignees
were given ninety days inL which to
answer it. 1 he case wi II come on at
the next term of Rowan court for
hearing, but as Judg Avery, vhq
will hold the court, is a director of
the road" unJer the administration of
of the assignees, it will be either
meved or contin uedl Statesvill
Landmark.
Guiteau's case is
stated in a nut
shell; by a New York gentleman,
who, in the Tribune, commenting on
the "inspiration' plea, says ; "Let us
hear what a writer, acknowledged by
the whole Christian church to be iu-
pirod, has to .say on this points
"Let no man say when he is tempted,
I am tempted of God, for God cannot
Imj tempted with evil, neither tempt
eth heSmy man. But! every man ii
tempted when he is drawn away by
his own lust and enticed. Then when
