The woman then went into an adjoin- ing.room, from which she speedily returned with a strong cord or rope arranged in the form of a noose. Smiling and talking pleas antly all the time, she stepped be hind her visitor, and dropping the noose over her head and arms, with a sudden jerk she soon bound the young girl helpless to the chair. “ Now ” said the woman, “ you shall see how I will avenge myself, ” whereupon from a table drawer she took a pair of shears, a large knife and a revolver, all of which implements she spread upon the ta ble before her victim, by this time ready to faint with terror. The torritentor’s next step was to cut off the girl’s hair as close as possible to the skin, leaving only a single handful on top of the head, for the purpose, as she explained, of facilitating the subsequent oper ation of scalping. The girl screamed and called for help as loudly as she could, but the house stands in a lonely place and no deliverer appemxcL After cutting off the hair, Mrs. X. brought a looking-glass that Ida might see the change produced in her appear ance. As the girl fo gged for re leasesaying, that she was freezing, she was told, with a plentiful ap plication of mocking epithets, that she would be warm enough before slie got away. Mrs. X. then put the poker in the st^ve,and while calm ly waiting for it to become red- hot, she told her yictim what she intended to do with it. “ First, I Will burn your eyes out,” etc., etc. And she really began to execute her threats, but when she was try ing to blind the girl, the latter, by a super-human effort, succeeded in releasing one of her hands, with which she seized the gfowing poker and for a while arrested the mon ster in the perpetration of her crime. | This interruption made it necessary to ... reheat .n'r, .J th® P°ker, the meantime the unlooked-for return of ths husband was all that saved the girl from prolonged tor ture and death at the hands of Mrs. X. ............ • /T he B ottom of I t .—A young drug clerk committed suckle in Bristol, a few days ago. At the inquest, the Corner asked a fellow clerk of the deceased if he knew of any cause for the sucide. ’’No,” was the reply; ” he was getting along very nicely, and was going to bo married next mouth.” “Go ing to be married next month, was he?” exclaimed the Coroner. “That will do.

The Republican sneers at their efforts to change the opinion of the President by any array of facte, and assures the conspira tors that the persuasive efforts of any number of delegates will not i avail to shake his purposes, for, says the Republican, “he has made op his mind.” That kind of talk may do for the meridian qf New Orleans,.but it is not adapted to the whole coun try. However it mayW^with. the President himself, it is flainr from a glance over the journals of the Republican party, that a large bod J of the very men who voted for Grant at ^the recent election , condemn his course in this Louisi ana business, and regard it as the greatest blunder of the admmistra- Warmouth’s term as Governpr expires with the present year.
