TOE TIMES PHILA BELriTTA , TUESDAY MOIJNIXG, JVIAECII 13, 1883. 15 6,000 CHINAMEN. now They Are Controlled by One Man. JUDGE, JURY, EXECUTIONER Some Incidents of the Work on the Southern Pacific Eailroad. Special CorresDondcnce of The Try es. On the Southern Pacific R. E., March 8. This road is the marvel of modem railway conatruction. The country which it traverses ha3 peculiarly unfavorable physical aapt'ets. The eiiKiieers bave overcome every obstacle. They' have threaded sandy deserts, tunneled lofty mountains, leveled rocky ridges, bridged ercat rivers and spanned deep canyons. Against them nothing has prevailed. Nature set up her Strongest citaUels to oar tneir progress. ". - j melted before their skill like dew before the summer sun. They brought ties nnd bridge timber three thousand miles and transported the connecting rails across a great continent. Savage tribus of Indians harassed and annoyed them. They raised an army and subdued the ' barbarians They passed through a country on - which the white man's foot had never been set. Civilization followed in their wake and towns and cities sprang up like magic. The country was non - productive and forage for their stock and subsistence for the army of workmen, had to be brought from a distance. CI1INKSR CHEAP LABOR. In some places water for all purposes had to bo carried a hundred miles. White men could not bo worked to advantage in this desert coun try and six thousand Chinese coolies were im ported as navvies. Armed with pick and shovel, tamping bar and sledge hammer they worked through the country a mighty hast of progress, and track - laying advanced at the rale of three miles a day. Even along the Rio Grande, where canyons were crossed a thousand feet deep, mountains tunneled a mile through and rocky ridges miles iu extent leveled and graded, these Mongalions moved forward a mile every twenty - four hours. I passed along tho lino for the first time last summer and it was a source of never - failing wonder to noto the rapidity and precision with which the work was accomplished. A hill of solid rock one hundred yards long hud to be cut down to tho average depth of thirty feet. A thousand tin Damen would swoop down upon it with drills and sledges. In six hours a blast would be ready. Tons of powder would be poured into the innumerable holes wade in the roek by Ah Sin. Fuses would be prepared, an electric bat tery attached, the engine. r would press the little button, and by t he time the smoke from the explosion cleared a war tho track - Iny - m outfit would bo hard atwoik placing ties in posit ion and spiking down rails. It was neces sary to lay the track before any permaneut bridge or trestle - work could be done CBOSSI.VG A CANYON. In crossing a can von false bridges were made of cross - tics, and it was astonishing how quirk those pig - tailed heathen ran up tho temporary piers. The construction company contracted for these laborers in California at n fixed price per head and was under bond to return them to the agent of the Six Companies when the road was completed. Ah Sin kept his ears open and was observimt. It was not long before he learned that one hundred cents for twelve hours of hard work was not the usual price paid railroad laborers. A rumor reached him that another great road was coming on to meet the one he was building and that navvies received $. a (lay thereon, lie was justly indignant at theadvau - tage which the cnterprisiiighutsoulloss corporation had taken of his ignorance of prices, lie did not openly protest, nor (lid lie hold a monster indignation meeting, with brass baud accompaniment, and strike for higher wages. These are a part of our peculiar civilization and Ah Sin had come straight from tho rice fields and tea groves of the Celestial Kingdom, where such assertions of independence and liberty usually cost the unfortunate promoters, aiders and abettors their lives. lie revolted, however, in secret and determined to better his condition, lie began to desert, and tho country between El Paso and the Pesos river was soon full of eastward moving pigtails. Tho company sent alter the recreants and recaptured most of them. This did nut deter others from venturing, and the company saw plainly that something must be done, but exactly what their wisest headscoutd uotdecide. PUTTING HOWN THE INSUmtKCTION. In this emergency a man arose they always do under such circumstances who boldly proclaimed his ability to nip this Chineso rebellion in tho bud. The company granted him extraordinary powers and he entered upon his labors. In three months after his peculiar methods of Subjection wero inaugurated nothing could tempt one of his Celestial navvies to desert his post. I met this railroad Napoleon one day and our acquaintance had ripened into a comparative intimacy before I learned that iu his presence the bravest rice - eater among these almond - eyed navvies quailed and trembled. He is one of the types of bonier semi - civilization, six feet lour inches in height, with a frame like a Hercules and a face on which the lines of firmness, derision and command arc sharply cut. He has very white and even teeth and shows them often, for he smiles frequently. An admirer of his remarked to me: "When Martin's nose comes down to meet his lip, and his lip goes up to meet his nose, and those teeth of his glisten and shine, why look out. He means business." I was waiting for the accommodation train to leave the "end of the track" when I formed his acquaintance. He is a man of intelligence and thoroughly informed on the subject of Chinese character peculiarities. He speaks the language fluently and can decipher the hieroglyphics on a " washee - washoe" bill at sight. A TEXAS PKACEMAKEK. While we were talking the foreman of tho track - laying gang came into the car. "Ah, Martin," he said, "1 have been looking for you. One of those fellows who deserted last mouth has returned and the interpreter says that he has induced half the men to quit and go across the country to the Sunset Extension. He is down among iny gang now." "Ho is, is he?" quoth Martin ; and that peculiar falling down of nose and flying up of lip disclosed his white teeth. "I'll fix him." He picked up a heavy billet of wood as ho finished speaking and invited me to go along Slid "see the fun." I went. The obnoxious Chinaman was in the centre of an excited group of his compatriots, volubly discoursing on the superior inducements held out to laborers on the other road. We were close upon him when one of the group caught sight of Martin's white teeth and uttered a warning cry. The crowd scattered and the chief conspirator started to flee. Too late. The billet of wood flew through the air, struck the deserter between the shoulders and he fell flat in the dust. Martin bent over him still smiling, and by way of resuscitation kicked the prostrate Celestial several times. The Confucian groaned and raised himself to a sitting posture. He was ordered to stand up, and did so with some dillieiilty. The foreman produced a stout rope, and the smiling Martin requested two of the track - layers to bind his prisoner's foot. He assisted them bv administering to each sundry kicks and cutis, which tended to quicken their movements considerably. When tho conspirator was securely fastened ho was ordered to march forward to the car. We followed. " I don't reckon there'll be any deserters from this gang," observed Martin, and ho administered u lusty kick to a water - carrier who had stopped to look after the prisoner. "These Chinamen are terrible cowards. I)o you know that every one of those fellows carries a pistol concealed under his blouse? It is a fact. That cuss ahead has one. I saw it when he was lying on the ground. There are upwards of six thousand, of 'em here and yet I manage thein without difficulty. If it was among any other race of people my life wouldn't bo worth two bits." The prisoner had reached the car and stood beside the step crying and sobbing. His captor kicked him several times and ho managed to scramble to tho platform, although he had no use of his hands or arms. We followed him into the car and Martin reached his hand under the prisoner's blouse and drew therefrom a large Coit revolver. " Now if he had been a white man ho would have shot me ou sight." " BULL - IlOiEIStt A CHIXAMAW. lie cocked the pistol and as though by accident pointed the muzzle at the Chinaman's head. The wretch fell ou his knees aud began to beg pitcously. Martin seemed to enjoy the poor devil's misery and smiled upon him be - cignantly. " It is hop die with you anyway. John," was Slartiu's consoling observation. "If I shoot you hero it is all over. If I carry yon back up the track you'll be hung." Tho Chinaman continued to pray for merry, and after drawing bead on his head suvcrul times Martin put the pistol in his pocket and we walked out on the platform. "That seems like cruel treatment." he said, " hut it is the only way to manage 'em. Make 'em fear you. Why, when 1 first began on 'em they were deserting at the rate of fifty a day. If the company had not backed me up there would not have been a Chinaman left on the line. You see, sir, out here there is really no law. The company contracted to carry these fellows back to 'Frisco as soon as the road was finished, aud every one who deserts is so mneh loss to them, for they are under heavy bond to return them in good order. There is no telling how much damage this one might have done if 1 had not stopped hiui." What will you do with him?" I asked. "Oh, I'll car'rv him back up the. road a couple of hundred miles and drop him. He won't come back." There was somethingsignificant in this latter sentence, but as the speaker's teeth were gleaming I did not deuiaud more explicit information. . When we got ready to move out the Chinaman was locked in an empty box - car. That was the last I saw of him. One of the train bands told me the next morning that he was dropped alongside the track during the night. When I asked what they were bhooting at about midnight ho replied : "Antelope!" Every mile or two we passed a Chinaman's grave. They bury their dead above ground in wooden hoxes, over which a thin layer of dirt is thrown. Each ono was marked by a headboard, covered with hieroglyphics. Some of the graves were newly mi'de and the little piles of paper money, which the dead man's friends had placed there to pay his expenses in the other world, had not yet blown away. On some of the graves were bowls of rice and baked chicken. Dead Chinamen are always supplied with provisions for the long journey. I remarked on the great number of graves to the brakeman. " Yes," he said ; " it is a sickly country for Chinamen !" That fellow's irony was incomparable. All the sections are worked by Chinese laborers. At one of tho section houses where we stopped the " boss" came out and chatted with Martin. "Oh, by tho way," ho said at length, "that fellow who was ki who died yesterday is laying out there in the car house. This new gang of mine are from Canton, and it's agiu' their religion to bury a Hong Kong man." ' " Religion be d d I" answered Martin, and his teeth gleamed. "Call 'cm up." The section boss did as directed and the car was soon surrounded by pigtails. Martin addressed them from the platform. One Celestial, who seemed to be the spokesman, replied. Martin promptly knocked him down. Ho dealt out persuasive kicks and cuffs to several others. Hefore we left the dead Chinaman from Hong Kong was securely boxed, and, as we passed around a curve, I saw his Canton friends begin to throw dirt over the rude1 coffin. A DOOMED MAS. My friend, tho brakeman, after we became better acquainted, volunteered some interesting information about tho "Cap'n." As it - was mainly of a statistical nature I am unable to give his remarks verbatim. He seemed to hold the subducr of tho Chinese in high esteem and gave mo minute data respecting tho number of Celestials he had "croaked." " They'll git him one o' these days, though," he sagely - concluded. "They've ditched hi3 train twice an' it wouldn't surprise me any day ef ho whs killed. These Chineo aro mighty treacherous." A gentleman connected with tho road informs me since that Martin is invaluable. Without his assistance the company would be unable to control the Chinamen. He is Judge, jury aud executioner, and whenever his while teeth gleam the Celestials shiver, for they know from experience that this sinister smile means business I SIXTY YEARS APART. After ll Separation of IMnro Than a Half Century Ili - other and Sister Are Keimitetl. From the Cleveland leader. A Painesvillo correspondent writes : Our venerable townsman, G. B. Mosher, to - day returned from Yorkshire, N, Y., where he visited a sister ho had not seen or heard from for more than sixty years. Tho circumstances of the long separation aro in substance as follows : The mother of a family of seven children died in 1814, aud the youngest, but two mouths old, was consigned to tho care of a lady friend of the family. When the child was a little more than a yoar old the father visited it with a view to taking it homo with him, but tho lady had become so much attached to tho child that sho was loth to give it up, and the father was persuaded to leave it with its foster mother. Some time after this tlie father wa - s married again and removed to Waterloo, N. Y., where ho had resided nine years at the time of his death. The eldest son then decided that tjio little girl should be brought home, and went in search of her only to find that tho family had gone to parts unknown. From that time until tho present efforts have been made by members of tho family to find their lust sister, whose whereabouts recently came to light through a peculiar and varied chain of circumstances. Mrs. iinardiuan Lane, of Waterloo, daughter of Mr. J. li. Mosher, learned of her supposed aunt's residence within a few miles of her homo, and thus ended the romance. Mr. Mosher is overjoyed at meeting his long - lost sister and is thus comforted iu his declining years. " IEvamrollste" in Itenl Lite. From the New York Times. Critics of M. Daudel's new story, " L'Eran - geliste,'' have complained of the cross improbability of the virtual kidnapping of Mile. Ebsen by a fanatical Protestant zealot ft is a curious coincidence Unit just at this lime a young English girl should have been carried off Iroin her family !y the leaders of the Salvation Army. The Uev. Mr. Cliarleswnrth, an English clergyman, writes to trie Timet complaining that the Salvationists have deprived him of his daughter. He took Miss Charlcsuorth ou one or two occasions to meetings of the Salvation Army, where phe made the acquaintance of" General Booth" and his family. Falling wholly under llielr Influence the girl Joined the Salvation Army and refused to remain at home or listen to her father's counsel aud com mauds. In company with Miss liooth Miss t tiarles - wonh went to Geneva, where their eccutriciues impel led ttie attention of the authorities and ted to their expulsion from the canton.

A Professional V lit iiper of Men. From the St. Iiuls Post - Dispatch. The follow ing is from the sworn statement of W.

I guess, than any man on the earth an exalted distinction and I have never seen uo blood run down, i have heard all about blood running down to tho heels and over the shoe - lops, and everything like that. It is the rarest thing in the world to see a trickling of blood ; it just raises a red si ripe and It is just according to the application or the skin that ll does that ; if I had a light, thin - skinned fellow I'd know how to whip him : 1 would not lay it on to him a light tap will hurt hint as much asa rough whipping will do vv - iiii n man that has got hair uu hit back.

Lust evening alter dark a youn;ninn named George Pierce and a boy named Harry Kline were crossing Hie bridge over the Mohawk river, between Amsterdam and Port Jackson, when Pierce playfully caught the boy in his arms aud held him over the bridge railing. The boy, laughing and struggling, slipped from Pierce's grasp and fell thirty feet into too icy river ueiow. i - ieree instantly sprang alter him. A crowd quickly gathered and ropes were thrown to the child, who was lloatlmr down stream clinging lo a cake of lee and he was rescued. Pierce also safely reached the shore.

SOME NEWB00KS. Two Works ou American History and Sundry Other Fresh Publications. Is COKXECTTON" with volume four of Hertmt H. Bancroft's " History of the Pacific States," treating of Mexico from 1516 to 1521, published by A. L. Ban - croft & Co., San Francisco, the publishers send forth a pamphlet giving a brief account ol the literary undertakings of the now somen hat famous author, and a pamphlet describing the Bancroft Library. All of this is quite natural w hen it is remembered what a surprise the great West feels at itself for having furnished the world with a aeries of books that at least will be standards of authority for future historians, if they should not prove the best summing up of the actual history Itself. The publishers have deemed it advisable for several reasons to deviate from strict numerical order in the publication of Hie several volumes of this history and to pursue a more chronological course. Thus, instead of continuum:: the annals of Central America, in the second volume of the series, the fourth is now issued, which is the first volume of the history of Mexico. The three succeeding volumes will bring the histories of Mexico aud Central America, side by side, down to about 18'K). This plan of publication has been adopted, first because territorial peculiarities seemed to demand it, and because by this arrangement the people of the several sections get pans of their own history much earlier than would otherwise be possible. Were the " History of the Pacific States," in its several piirls, issued strictly as one work, the volumes would bo nnmbered in about the order of their proposed publication ; but in that case they would not be so numbered that when completed the volumes of Central America, or of Mexico, or of California, etc., would stand together, each as a complete history and separate set. So much for the order of publication. Of Mexico in general and of the special section of It covered by the present volume, Mr. Bancroft, In his preface, says: "The first of the live great periods of Mexican history, embracing the aboriginal annals of Anahuac, has been exhaustively treated iu the tilth volume of my " Native Races ;" tho second is that of the conquest by Cortes; the third eoversnearly throe centuries ot vice - regal rule In Now Spain; the fourth comprises the struggle for independence and the founding of the Republic, and tho filth extends thence to the present time. Including as salient features a series of internal revolutions, the war with the United States, the imperial experiment of Maximil - liau and the peaceful development ot national industries and power iu recent years. The conquest of Mexico, already treated by very able writers, Is the subject of the present volume and is to form a part of the next volume ot the series. One hundred and ten pages of this volume are devoted to a closcly - prinled listofautnorities quoted aud about one - third of the space of the rem. lining seven hundred pages of the volume is devoted to exp'anntory loot - notes. All this furnishes abundant evidence of the painstaking labor that Mr. Bancroft has bestowed on his work. Of the history itselt it must bo said that it lacks perspicuity and by its careless dilfusciiess often fails to fasten attention on the actual proceedings described. As a sample, take the following para graph of generalization: "We have often Been, in the new world wars, a thousand naked Americaus put to flight by ten steel - clad Europeans, and 1 have cleariy given the reasons. When we look at the Indians, with their comparatively poor weapons, their unprotected bodies, their ineflicient discipline and taclics, whereby only a small p irliaii of their force could be made available, the other portion serving rather as an obstruction, their custom of carrying oIT their dead and other weak points, and when we contrast them with the well - armed Spaniards," etc. Hut while the industry of Mr. Bancroft must be commended, exception should be taken to tills sort of discursive talk when the most concise work is demanded in order to bring t lie history into something like reasonable limits at all. So Mr. Btncroft will bo likely to take his place rather as an accumulator of data than as a careful and forceful or elegant writer of actual history, and with this understanding his work on Mexico, like the rest, is to be heartily eoui - mended. To bkoin with it must be said for the first volume of Professor John Bach MeMaster's "History ot the People of the United Slates," just issued by D. Appleton & Co., that the publishers have chosen excellent type and a handsome, liberal page of just the size one likes to have for a standard publication, Mr. McMaster has undertaken to write the " History of the People of the United States," embracing the period from the close of the war for Independence down to the opening of the war between the States. It is really a history of America for the period mimed. The people in their separate national types, in their diileriug social customs or lu their opposite political opinions do not figure in it more especially as individuals or peoples than they do in Mr. Bancroft's history. But It is a careful, conscientious piece of work, for which Professor MeMaster's life - long studies have well fitted him. It is to be completed in five volumes, will not be as diffusive as Mr. Bancroft's work and will be more complete thnn any other American history covering the period described. Mr. McMaster evidently means to get as deeply into individual and social customs and life us is possible. He says: "At every stage ol the splendid progress which separates tho America of Washington and Adams from the America iu whieh we live it shall tie iny purpose to describe the dress, the occupations, the urnusemonts, the lit. entry canons of the times; to noto tho changes of manners and morals; to traco the growth of that humane spirit which abolished punishment for debt, which reformed tho discipline of prisons aud of jails and which has iu our own time, destroyed shivery and lessened the miseries ot dumb bmles" which Is very good, but somewhat sentimental, and there are a thousand deeper questions that Involve tho inner life of llio people still more than these. The miseries of dumb brutes may be lessened, but the dumbbrtites haveuot been heard from. It is safe to say thai In 1781 boys played ball In Boston streets, now noisy with the rush ol traffic, and that cows were then pastured where the houses of a dense population now crowd each other " for room" and a good many other things. Of our own city Mr. McMaster says : "To the south of New York no place ol importance was to be met with till Philadelphia was readied. The city was then the greatest In the country. No other could boast of so many streets, so many houses, so many people, so much renown. There hail been made the discoveries which carried the name of Franklin to the remotest spots of the civilized world. There had been put lorth the IVclamtion of Iiideiiendence." Thomas Jefferson and Thomas Paine were then prominent people here. And of Virginia the author says: "Strange as this section ol the country seemed to men from tho Eastern Slates it never failed to Ira - press visitors from the continent with the many resemblances it bore to England. Especially was tills true of Virginia. There the traveler journeying through the tide - water region may still meet, along the banksofthe Rappahannock and the James, with tne crumbling ruins and dilapidated remains of what one hundred years ago were the spacious mansions of tho rich planters." Of our curly literature along in the 1780s Mr. McMaster says: "With few exceptions all books came from beyond the Atlantic. Fully three - fourths of every library were volumes written by Englishmen of letters and published by English printers. No American writor had yet appeared whose compositions possessed more than all ephemeral interest or were deemed worthy to bo ranked with those of Goldsmith and Johnson, of Swift and Gibbon." From these references the reader may gain an insight inlo Mr. MeMaster's style of thought and composition. It is not analytic, penetrative, precise or very suggestive, but clear iu broad, general outline, and as histories go is a very creditable production. The best kepi.y yet made to Mr. Kobert Ingcrsoll will be found in a volume called " lnger - 8oilism Iroin a Secular Point of View," being a leeture delivered at ono time and another in New York, Boston. Philadelphia, Chicago, St. Louis, and in over six hundred ot the principle lecture courses of the United States, by George K, W'endling.and published by Jansen, McClurg A Co., Chicago. In his preface Mr. Wendliug says he is not a preacher or the sou of a preacher, does not kuow whether he Is orthodox or not, and doubts If there Is much practical piety about himself; which annuiinceuicuts will make his book all the more forceful with the class ol people afflicted with the disease known as Ingersollism. Mr. Wendliug dedicates the volume to Josephine E. Wendlina, " The Queen of My Homo, a Perfect Wife and a Perfect Mother." which llltlo bit of sentiment will send tho book ahead in the "Great West," There aro appropriate preludes trom Theodore Parker, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Plutarch, Rous seau and Huxley, and Mr. Wendliug says he "permits" tho publication of tho lecture because many persons in various parts of the country have requested him to do so. Ho simply applies hard, common sense, what In the West they call " horso sense," to Ingeraoll'a vapid, baseless and glittering, conscienceless generalities, and of course "smashes and pulverizes" the loud author of the " Mistakes of Moses." In his ritEFACE to notes on "Evolution and Christianity." by J. F. Yorke, published by Henry Holt & Co., New York, tho author says: " The object ot the following simple notes is to turn a small, but, It is hoped, not inopportune stream of facts und criticism on an important question, viz.: Is there In the teaching of Christ an orluiualily so wonderful as to be accounted for only by the assumption of a special Divine Revelation?" Certainly an iinporlantqiiestion, as the auihor says, and one already very seriously and profoundly handled by many able men. But a "stream of facts" is always good and the reader may get some insight Into the spirit and scope of Mr. Yorko's book from the opening paragraphs of chopter first "In the first portion of these notes a slight sketch will 00 given of some of the most conspicuous points In that moral evolution of which tho doctrines of Christ, rationally viewed, appears to he the natural culmination." Then tho same old ground Is covered. Tho Old Testament and the New are quoted, and passages from other sacred books are placed in comparison with them. This is the stream of facts. Readers must judge for themselves how and to what conclusion the stream runs and tends. This, however, should be said. It Is plain that Mr. Yorke has not gone to the central heart nf tho matter, but has Industriously scanned the surface and has some good things to repeat, rather than to say. The second volume of O. T. Tutunni's Sous' handsome edition of George W. Williams' " History of the Negro Race in America" Is just published. Volume one was noticed at the tlmo of its publication. Mr. Williams was the first colored member of the Ohio Legislature aud late .lodge Advocate of tho Grand Army of t he Republic of Ohio, aud Is one of tho best representatives of what freedom, Industry nnd education can do for tho colored man lu this age and nation. This second and closing volume of his work covers the p;:riod of the colored raco from 1KO0 to IBS'), and discusses, therefore, many questions relative to the great struggle between tbe North and the South, resulting finally in the civil war, in the Proclamation ot Emancipation and the reconstruction and hoped - for elevation of the colored race iu this country. There is a vast amount of unimportant detail in the volumes, but the main body of information cannot be found as compactly elsewhere, and for the sake of the colored race, as for the sake of the author, hose labor is worthy of praise, the books Bhould be widely read. It IS A GREAT PITY that some intelligent Americans whose memories go back to the comiutn - ionships of Revolutionary times bave not gathered up and written down those memories. There is, of course, a good deal of American antiquarian information. But books such us Mr. A. B. Muzzey's "Reminiscences and Memorials ot Men of the Revolution and their Families," published by Estcs & Laiirint, Boston, are not too plentiful. And it is a pity that Mr. Muzzey, whose memory recalls so many important associations, did not tax it more severely for the facts and stories of a biographical character not so generally known as a good deal of the information he gives. But if his effort shall arouso others in a similar direction it will serve a double and a most excellent purpose. There is some melody of versification but little real poetic power and next to no com. pass of real thought, in a little volume of "Poems,'' by Ernest Wartmrtou Slmrtteff, with an Introduction by Ilezekiah Bulterworth, published by A. Williams &Co., Boston. There are two or three pretty good lines in the dedication to "My Mother," but " Like wild flowers, petaled with but simple thought. From out my mind, there be but one that is shown To have such form and hues as nature's brush has tuught," will not pass for good poetry or endurable prose. The margins are wide and the leaves uncut, as book fanciers like to have them. "Aphorisms of the New Life" iVa little volume in the " New Church Popular Series," by W. 11. Holeombe, M. D., published by E. Claxton & Co., Philadelphia, Page nine, paragraph six, has this bit of Swedeuborginu revelation: "'The New Life' be gins with the vivification of Remains, which are the things of tho Lord in man, the conjoined goods and truths which have been stored away iu the interiors of the sou! from infancy." And page 93, paragraph eight: "The Lord Jesus Christ is the Divine celes tial. Divine spiritual and Diviue natural man." A 11 of which is simply elaborate Swedeuborgiau for much brieler and more pointed expressions knowu to every intelligent Christian man. "The Times of Gustaf Adolf," by Z. Topelius, translated from the original Swedish and published by Jansen, McClurg & Co.. Chicago, is tho first of a series of Swedish historical romances known as the surgeon's stories. The surgeon and his life are described in the introduction, and the story itself is a vivid, romantic picturing of ono of the most fascinating periods of human history. It is at once a clever study of history and a very varied tracing of Swedish social life in its higher and lower strata. "Gustaf Adolf" and the remaining volumes of the series will, iu all probability, commaud a wide circle of readers. The Jons W. Lovelt, Company', New York, have issued a cheap edition of Henry George's capable and sugiestive work on " Progress and Poverty," a discussion of tho social and economical problem, with decided leauiugs toward the side of the laboring man, and with these significant lines from Mrs. Sigourney as a prelude : Ye build! ye build! butyo enter notin, Like tho tribes whom the desert devoured in their sin : From the land of promise ye fade and die, Ere its verdure gleams forth on your wearied eye. All students of comparative religions thought should read Professor George Rawlinson's "Religions of the Ancient World," including E,'ypt, Assyria, Persia, India, Phoenicia, Etruria, Greece and Rome, published by Charles Seribncr's Sous, New York. A great deal' that is not scholarly or reliable has been written on this subject, but Professor Raw - linson has crowded a vast amount, of careful and suggestive thought Into his Oxford lectures, now published lubook form. It is the application of good, cultivated human sense to a very abstruse subject. No fancy aud no hiding of the truth. CHARLES ScRlBNETt's Sons, New York, publish a very good translation of Paul Janet's "Final Causes." It is a most intricate - and tangled theme, but Janet's book is recognized in France as oneoi the best guides a young man can take along with him in his hunt (or final causes. It does not attempt to trace their presence in the regions of intellect, emotion, morality and history, but only in nature, as generally understood. It is not by any means the final round on final causes, but it has abundant scholarship and a good tendency. " Harry Moore's Choice" is the title of a volume of stories published by tiie Presbyterian Board of Publication. Forty - five pages are devoted to Harry's story, and, of course, he makes the good choice. Then there are sixty pages of " Fred's Trip to China," in which it appears the Chinese are " relatively moral" about like most Christians; some two hundred pages to " The ytory of Mohamed,"and near the end about six pages on " Aloe's Mission Fields," with just a little bitof real human nature iu them. In his portable Elzevir Library Series, John B. Alden, New York, has Issued Banyan's " Pilgrim's Progress," an excellent antidote for Ingersoll's "Mistakes of Moses;" "A H,il Hour in Natural History," by S. II. Peabody;" "World Smashing," "Meteoric Astronomy" and " Lunar Volcanoes." by W. Matticu Williams, and a sketch of Sir Issue Newton, by James Partnn. All supposed to be literary gems, but with a vast distance between the tinker's Pilgrim aud Mr. Parlous Newton. Francis T. Russell, M. A., is tlio author of a somewhat voluminous work on "The Use of the Voice in Reading and Speaking. A Manual for Clergymen and candidates for Holy Orders," published by D. Appleton & Co., New York. It is addressed especially to clergymen of the Protestant Episcopal Church. Mr. Russell being instructor in elocution at the General Theological Seminary in New York. "The Intermediate Text Book of Physical Science," by F. H. Bowman, illustrated and published by Cassell, Better. Galpin & Co., is an admirable little volume to put into the hands of intelligent boys and girls whose education in the physical sciences has been neglected. It abouuds in useful information, and the illustrations aid as they should do in explaining the text and the subjects. "Sibylline Leaves" is the somewhat attractive title given by A. E. M. K. to a small volume of poetic selections, published by Henry Holt & Co., New York. A good deal ot excellent taste and good judgment is displayed, and the happy conceit of dividing the quotations iutospecial chaptersor sections descriptive of different subjects may also add somewhat to the interest of the reader. Charles Scribner's Sons have published a translation of " Dr. Dorner on the Future Slate," with an introduction by Newman Smyth. The titlo sulliciently indicates the scope of the work. The ability of the author is well known, and people interested in the theological discussion of the "Last Things" may llud the book Interesting and valuable. G. T. Putnam's Sons have issued a little pamphlet called "Herbert Spencer on American Nervousness," by G. - oigi) M. Beard ; really containing some coincidences between some of Mr. Beard's and Mr. Spencer's expressions ou the nervous question. But great thoughts uever did come singly, even iu science. " The Lowell Birthday Book," published by Houghton, Miftlin & Co., Is a little late coming, but it Is very pretty, and no doubt will receive a hearty welcome among Mr. Lowell's mauy admirers and friends. Beatrice May Butt lias made a very pretty and tender story out of her "Geraldiue Hawthorne," published by Henry Holt & Co. A remarkable Rabbit Hunt iu Texas. From tiie Chico Record. Last Thursday a crowd of twenty - three men and boys Irom Biggs and Grldley, mostly from the former town, turned out on a rabbit hunt. They had the finest kind of a time. There seemed to be mill - Ions ot Jack rabbits or, as they aro known by some, "Texas mules." Great quantities of powder was burned and an old gentleman who was present said that the continual firing ol gnus reminded him ot a hard - fought baltle in which ho had taken a hand. A thicket was surrounded and rabbits poured out in countless numbers. The snort was kept up nearly all dav, hut the hardest part nf all was the gathering of the game. When the ground had been gone over several times the men succeeded in finding nearly fioii rabbits that had fallen under the steady hail of shot and ball. The rabbits were sold to pay oil' a church debt . Rest. There is no rest. 'TIs but an empty sound A dream all shadowless the world around. finest is normal.

AK OLD YIRSINIA KITCHEII The Negro Quarters A Woman Facing an Angry Mob. Special Correspondence of Thk Times. Richmond, March 12. There is no longer such a tiling as an old Virginia plantation. Many readers of The Times are clad that it is so, while some of us regret " the good old days." All of us. perhaps, are interested in any faithful picturing, though it be but a charcoal sketch, of times uever to be revived. I offer my charcoal sketch. Tbe three thousand acres of land had been granted by George III. to the "great - grnuds," as we called the bewigged portraits in the hall and library ; and the grant, an old yellow parchment, was shown us on state occasions. It did not stir our young Republican blood much, and I think our chief sensation was one of surprise that kings should write on such dirty paper. Neither did tho little crested spoons impress lis much, nor the great dishes and plates of rare old ch ina, nor the h igh - carved bucks of the stiff chairs, nor tho brass claw - foot of the antique dining table ; but we thought George must have been a generous fellow to give away such trees as those which gave its riame to Oakouwold. The great lawn contained eighty old trees. Fifty of these were oaks of such a size that the thirty hickories, locusts, etc., woro positively not seen at all. Each oak was a giant, and when he had stretched his boughs out to an incredible distance from the huge trunk they were met by the equally far - reaching boughs of a brother giant. AN OLD PLANTATION". Jack and I had been born among the thrifty Scotch - Irish of the Valley of Virginia, and next to the trees we woudered most at the numberof servants it took to do the work. There were overall hundred slaves belonging to the place, not counting the children, who, indeed, seemed as hard toeotiut as little black ants swarming about. Of course, most of these men and women wero field hands aud worked the large wheat and tobacco crops. But, compared with our simple experience of village life, there seemed a littlb army of servants about the house. There wa, for the care of two pair of carriage horses and four or five riding nags, an old coachman, Isham, who had young Manuel us an assistant. Isham had been stable boy for an earlier generation and was,au old man of sense and character lie honestly believed himself indispensable to the white folks at the "gret hus" (as the family dwelling was called on tho plantation) and to the whole black settlement, ilis estimation of himself was equaled by tho readiness with which he found excuses for his shortcomings. Ho was sent on ono occasion to meet the canal boat and reached the lauding so late that the expected guest had taken a shorter ron to and walked to Oakemvoid before the carriage returned. " Isham, you wrotch," said my auut, "what made yon so lateV" " You sees, mistiss," gravely, bowing, cap in hand, "deso wheels '(use to tu'n." SOME PLANTATION CIIABACTKBS. Manuel, lshain's assistant, was a powerful young fellow, black, shiny aud good - natured. He was as strong as a bull; could have tossed Isham up with ono hand, but was dreadfully afraid of the old man and entirely under hack. The horses were brought under my uncle's window a little aftor daylight every morning for his inspection. To this early conference came also Ralph, tho gardoner, who had two grievances that sorved him in all weathers: "Dom'zry in do back" and "dem ounat'ral lazy nigga boys what the mistiss pesters him by sendiu' in do garden for to help." The dining - room was supplied with three waiters : Shepherd, tho aristocrat, who carried the kcys;Abner, put under Shepherd "to lam," and Godfrey, a boy whose use I could never see, unless it was to wait on Abner. Shepherd could not hand your plate nor fill your glass without impressing you with tho solemnity of life and particularly of this occasion; but Abner was a wag, an undeveloped Mark Twain; ho was a young elephant for clumsiness, and tho very fact of his being put into the position of waiter was itself a good joke. His agility in making excuses, howevor, was liko "Undo lshain's," something fine. For his many breakages ho had one ever - repeated defense: " Hutyou knows, mistiss, ax'dens does happen in do bes' reg'lated faui'lies." Being sent ono day to tho dining - room for a little table, which lie had just smashed by falling over, he earnestly declared that "de top ob dat table done lef de legs !" A VIRGINIA KITCHKK. Each successive cook, always a man, was kept for several years at a first - class restaurant in Richmond "to learn good manners and jump Jim Crow," I suppose, for I am sure my aunt's kitchen could havo afforded him sufficient instruction. The kitchen was some distance from tho house, and yon will wonder how four kinds of hot bread for every breakfast and four hot meats for dinner could issue from it when I tell you there was nothing like a sfovo on tiie whole plantation. Tho most elaborato dinners were prepared in the big, wide fireplace, furnished with spits and iron pots and ovens. lie - sides these men there were two laundresses, a daiiywoman, two chambermaids and my aunt's maid, all attended by satellites, supposed to be "lariiin.'" Then a host of carders, spinners, weavers and seamstresses, for all woolen clothes were spun and woven and both woolen and cotton cut and made under my aunt's personal supervision for tho hundred slaves. As for the children, their costume consisted in what was called a "Coino - hcre - t'asnr," from an old family joke that their one garment was shaped by the mistress' calling to the first urchin she could catch, ' Come, here, C'tesitr," holding up a piece of unbleached cotton cloth to him and whacking it out the proper length and width. But when yon remember that this carding, spinning, weaving and making of clothes, summer and winter, was only one of the rcsponsibilitiesof Oakenwold's mistress, you will not be surprised that my aunt should say her own freedom began when the slaves woro turned loose to shift for themselves. THE NEGRO QUARTERS. The negroes lived in two settlements, "the quarters" and. " the woods quarters." All who were employed at or about the house lived in log cabins in one eoi - uor of tho lawn ; this was tho quarters. The field hands had a settlement of such cabins in tho woods, and a few favored house - servants had frame buildings in the rear of the "great house." I take it for granted that those cabins were not moduli of neatness, but it muKt havo been mighty clean dirt, for iny recollection is that sickness was rare among them und they lived to a most tiresome old age. Indeed, theirold age was one of the sad things in their condition. They wero not neglected, for as soon as a woman got too old for field work she was put to taking care of the very old people and the little children. Constantly baskets of " white folks' vittals" went from the family table to these old creatures, in addition to their regular rations, while tho mistress and her children inailo frequent, sometimes daily, visits to their cabins. Hut it was sad, for all that. Their children and grandchildren kept very little affection for tho old people (this was their heathenism cropping up!) and the old minds, never trained or furnished in youth, sank into a sort of stupor whou they had to lay aside Work. It was only now and then Unit they held on to any realization in a hereafter. PACINO AN ANGRY MOB. Let mo tell you a story of the Oakenwold negroes that belongs to a later time: During the war my aunt lived at home (the four sons being in Jhe army), with ouly a daughter - in - law and a niece. There was not a white man on the plantation, except the overseer. One midnight some of the negro women came in terror to my aunt's chamber to tell her thatthe overseer had killed a negro, had run for protection to one of the cabins back nf the house, and was now lying hidden there; that the plantation negroes had armed themselves with axes and clubs and were on their way to avenge Jell's death. My aunt threw on her dressing gown, and taking a candle in her hand went out alone to speak to tho excited crowd. She met them at the front gate, half a mile from tho house, aud fearlessly ordered them to halt. Shospoko calmly and kindly to them; told them how grieved she was at poor Jerf's death, but that if Mr. Itocbuck had killed him in sell - defense nothing should be done to him; they should all, however, havo a chance to tell what they knew and if tho overseer had shot Jeff in anger he should not go unpunished. Then, after giving directions about tho man's burial, she ordered them all to go U bed. They obeyed, silently and at once. The faint light from the eandlo struck up through the towering oaks as the solitary woman's figure made its way back to tho house and before sho reached it all danger was over. Next day the overseer, who had done this cowardly act from tho wildest terror (Jeff having threatened to kill him), was handed ovor to the authorities. Another story takes a lighter tone. After the war, when the n umber of servants in attendance at Oakenwold was divided by four or five, two negro girls, eighteen aud twenty, went to the nearest village " to hire out." The iady to whom they applied cauld hardly tell the story for laughing: "I asked if they conld cook; 'no'm, we ain't never bin cook none; Phil alius cook.' Can you wash? 'No'm. we ain't bin wash none neither; Aunt Sally, she wash.' Can you clean house, then ? 'No'm, least we ain't never bin clean none.' and so," said Mrs. Nash, " I went through the whole list of qualifications, receiving always the same negative answer. Well, what in heaven's name, said I at last, have you been accustomed to do ? Lucinda's dusky face brightened 'Sukey, here, she hunt for master's specs aud I keep flies off ole miss!" A STRANG K MALADY. The Feet of a Boy ho Hot as to Heat Water In Ten Minutes. From the Charlotte Observer. One ofthe strangest cases that has ever been brought to tho attention of tho physicians in this section of the country is recorded from Cabarrusooiinty.and we relate the circumstances as given tons by parties who saw the patient themselves and know what they say to be true. Mr. A. M. VVilhclm, of No. 10 township, Cabarrus county, passed through Concord on Monday night with his sick sou John, aged 20 years, on the way to Salisbury to consult Dr. Wilhclm iu regard to the extraordinary malady with which his son was afflicted. It is a most peculiar case, and tho disease is what the doctors term " hyperesthesia." An ordinary bathing tub can be tilled with cold water and tho hoy's feci placed therein, nnd in less than ten minutes the water will bo made so hot that one can fee! the heat through the staves of the tub. Tho boy sutlers agony, as if lie had his feet in a bed of coals all the time, and was carried from his father's house to Salisbury with his feet in a tub of water. Between his house and Concord Mr. Wilhelm had to change tho water four times, and shortly after being changed each tiruo it would become hot ttgaiu. At times the pain suffered by the boy is almost beyond endurance. Morphine, used in treble doses, has no effect upon him, hut at times whisky is used to good advantage. He has been suffering about one month. Mr. Wilhelm is running a mill and this hoy is his chief help. On the day that his malady appeared one of his little broihers was at the engine, and by chance a very strong head of steam was put on. The machinery was soon in violent and rapid motion so much so that all left but the little fellow, who climbed on the engine and was at the steam gauge trying lo regulate matters. The older boy, John, coining up and seeing the perilous condition of his little brother, hastily put tip a ladder nnd mounted it for the rescue, but upon reaching him the rocking of the boiler and engine was so great that he could not get tbe young fellow down, who was manfully trying to manage the gauge. The machinery was stopped and everything righted. The excitement and strain upon John's nervous system in this case is supposed to be the formation of his disease, as he was attacked the same day with a strange, stinging sensation in his arm3 and from that to his legs aud foot, where ho is now sufl'eiing. WKJ.SII RABBIT. Mr. Parkinson's Directions fur Making an Old - Fashioned Dainty. From the Caterer. There are several styles of making; the Welsh rabbit sometimes pedantically called the " rarebit" but the first requisite is to have the proper character of cheese. It reiiuires a sound, sharp, old and crumbly cheese. I have found the Kuglish Che - liTO or the American imitution thereof, to be the best for this purpose; the next is the 1'armesau. The bread, I would say, should lie of the very best quality, light, sweet and pure. I will now give you the old Eugiish plan for making a Welsh rabbit. Toast a slice or two of day - old bread, not scorched or burnt, but to a nice, crisp, golden color; butter these ufcll and lay tbem ti)Kin a warm plate. Now cut up into small pieces four ounces of cheese, put into a small saucepan wilh a tcusnoonful of made Kuglish mustard, a little black pepper, a piueh of salt nnd half a tumbler of ale: place on the lire and stir until thoroughly melted, then pour it over the toast and, accompanied by a glass of good ale or beer, proceed with a thankful heart to discuss. Ax Amukican Kabiiit. Make slices of toast, lay them on a hot dish and pour over them a little hot milk or water and set the dish aside on the range to keep warm; now proceed exactly as directed in the above, except that you use milk instead of the ale. Anothkr I' Mix with a quarter of u pound of grated Cheshire or Parmesan cheese an equal quantity of fine bread orumbs and a quart of a pound of good Itiitiev; add a teaspoon (id of made mustard, a saltspoonl'nl of salt and a dash of black popper. Mix all well together and Oeat it to a smooth paste in a mortar. Spread this paste neatly and thickly on slices of toast and place thein in the oven to become thoroughly hot and slightly brown; placing a stout sheet of white paner over the dish until hot and then removing it prevents the cheese from becoming too brown or dry. Asothkr Stvlk. Cut or erate quarter of n pound of cheese, put H into a saneepau with a small tumbler of niilk or cream, two oiiui - cs of tho best hotter, a tablespoonftil of made uiustaul and a pinch each of pepper and salt ; place ou the lire and stiriintil melted; then add and slir nipidly in the yolksof three circs; when the mixture begins to set," form it inlo a roll, put it ou a hot dish and servo immediately. Keynard's Rrusli Id a Girl's Cap. From the True Marylander. On lust Friday we hod the most summer - like day so far this season, and Mr. William T. Fleming, accompanied by other gentlemen w ho are fond of the sport ol chasing reynard. indulged iu a urand fox hunt over the country to the cast of town. A young lady, who lives near Princess Anue, and who is passionateiy fond of horseback ridinr, look her maiden hunt that day. Accompanied by her f.ilher, she joined the hunt at fuv) A. M. They were in the saddle until 8 P. M., and when the young lady rode up home she bore the brush of icynard in her cap as a trophy. Ihcy hnd a line chastt, and all who were ou the hunt declared the sport excellent. 1'Minc; it on neaconsfield's Mmnment, The Countess of Chesterfield has placed a brass in Ihe parish church of I'.retby, Derbyshire, which bears the following inscription : "Iu memory of Benjamin Disraeli, Karl of Beacoustield, the foremost man ol his age.
