coming along, and grammatical

the rear. Geographies contain less

This tale tells iiow a young girl
had an artificial arm made of gold;

father finally thought he would ex

that he might sell it. 'Accordingly

road was dark and gloomy, and the
guilty parent, nervous 'and very
much frightened.- Suddenly, above
the mournful cry of the wind came
a low, dismal Avail, saying, "Where's
my golden arm?, Where's my -golden
armr" -and glancing over his
shoulder the ierrijied father Saw the
ghost of his daughter, 'her good arm
gesticulating v.ildly,. pursuing him.

he went, this cry still ringing in his

crept info bed. Out on the . stairs,
near, evr nearer, he heard the
wail, and in terror listened to the
a Ivancing- footsteps. Suddenly, the
door was ojicncd and the "ghostly
figure of his.da'.ighter advanced, cry
ing; "Where's my golden arm?".
The father, frightened nlmost to in
sensibility, coveted up his head in the
blankets, and the Fpook placed her
hand on Jhe coverlets anl cried:
"Where's my golden arm?"
Ju.-t at this moment Mark' gave a
jump, spread o.tt hii arms widely,
and in a. voice that could have been
heard in Massachusetts shrieked,
"In hock, by jingo !"
The effect of this was electrical.
From out of tjie darkness of the
audience room there came a series of
yells and groans, and exclamations
of fright. Several timid women be
gan to cry hysterically; and two, I
think, fainted away. The room was
in confusion, and when the gas was

A young man under examination

where the effect was in advance of

"Yes, sir.". .....

Charles Armstrong, colored, was
tried at the Shelby court f ir bur
glary, Confessed his crime, and was
convicted. This is Judge Clarke's
Charles Armstrong:" You have
been arranged for one of the highest
crimes known to the law. You have
been tried and convicted by an im
partial jury of your countrymen for
the crime of burglary, the penalty
of which is death. You have had
the advantage of able counsel, and
all that skill and eloquence could do
has been elonc in your defense.. You
are now to suffer the sad conse
quence's of your 'own wicked acts.
You are. not a- stanger to ,the forms
and penalties of law, havitfg already
served a term for larceny in the
State penitentiary a punishment
that should have put you on your
guard and deterred you from the
further commission of crime. That
punishment, iu'stead of being the
means of your reformation, has
seemed only to harden 3011. It be
comes my solemn duty to pronounce
upon you the sentence of the Court.
You have appeared before an earthly
judge for the last lime. The - next
time you appear before a tribunal it
will be to stand before the. judge of
quick and dead, to whom the secrets
of all hearts are known. .To' his
mercy I most solemnly commend
you. "There is a way which seemeth
good unto a man the end' where
of is death." "The wages e.f sin is
death;' you have done tlu work and
vou must receive the pay.- I should
be unmindful of my whole duty if I
did not admonish you in pronounc

to you no hope of escape from the
penalty of the law. Only pardon
from the Governor of the Stale could
save you, and from Executive cjem-eiu'-y

the circumstances connected with

One of-the most remarkable en
terprises of the period is the great
railway over the gigantic chain of
the Andes, rom Valparaiso and
Santiago, Chili, to the city of Buenos
Ay res. It is to Le a trans-con tinen t?
al line, passing across South Amer
ica, from the Pacific to the Atlantic,
ocean, and will have a length of
about one thousand mrlc-s. Its con
structions is now proceeding, under
the direction of engineers from the
United States, w ho will be compelled
to surmount tremendous difficulties
interposed by nature. The chief of
these-will be the passage of the
Andes, which, between the Argen
tine Confederation and Chili, rise to
the Light of 20,000 feet, -and .rareiv
fall below 15,000. The lincwiU'ako

The or ll Carollun Exodus.
The. Xew Orleans Times-Democrat
coincieles with the opiuion re
cently expressed by The News and
Courier, that the North Carolina
exodas gives to that State an excep
tional and ei.via.ble opportunity to
fcolve the Southern question for it
self in a practical and highly satis
factorily way, and adds:
"Wo quite agree-with the News and
Courier that if North Carolina can
exchange its negro labor for white
hands, if it-can get rid of 30,000' of
them and have their places tilled by
30,000 white men, it will be richer,
more prosperous and happier for it !
in every way. It is, unfortunately, !
toward the Gulf that these North
Carolina negroes.are moving..--. That
State is becoming white at the ex
pense of Arkansas, , Mississippi and
Louisiana. When the people down
here see California booming ahead
in consequence of this new immigra
tion, they will awake to the fact that
w hite settlers are far jnr re valuable
additions to the population than im
ported negro hands." ,
.The white people .of the Missis
si ppi .Valley : are already, becoming
uneasy at the prospect of having
a large part of the .-negro popula
tion of the Altlantic States,-transferred
to.. the Southwestern States,
and it may' be expected confidently
that the movement in that direction
will presently experience a check".
There is no reason, however, why the
exodus should not continue. The
colored population is drifting west
ward steadily, and the territory of
the United States extends far be
yond the Mississippi Iiiver. Louisi
ana, Mississippi and Arkansas are
mere resting places on the road.
I here is room in Katisas-alone for
thousands of confirmed colored Re
1'ublkaii.v, and millions can find
huines between" the borders of that
State and the Pacific.
Sooner or later, the Mississippi
and Louisiana exodus will follow
the North Carolina exodus, and
eventually the "race problem" will
lie shifted from the Southern States
to the prairie region where it will
no longer be complicated by the is
sues of the civil war. Our South
western neighbors should welcome
the rapidly coming guests and speed
t hem 011 111 their westward way.
