clergyman was bound to read the ser-
vice. over his, body, but that. if -the
clergyman, was interfered -with he
might shut up his book and -walk
away, .but the burial could hnot -be
stopped : :. -
The clergyman, Rev. A. G. Barker,
went early to the church yard, and
exhorted the- crowds to solemn and
decent behavior.. He:and his curate,
Rev. -H. Sandal!], afterwards met the
funeral at the gate, .and proceeded
with the words, "I am -the Resurrec-
tiop and the life,'"' .when some of the
mournersshouted to him to stop, and
others said to.go on. Meanwhile the
hearers, commanded by -one of the
B ron's sons, pushed along, and threw
the coffin into the .greve, near the
gate. A solicitor was sent to. say that
in ti.e name of the, executors he-pro-
tested against the .lseryice: being: read.
The rector shut his book and quietly
walked away: with his: curate. The
church-wardens have served a notice
on the solkicitor for the two sons-
stating that they, hold him legally re-
sponsible for stopping the rector in
the performance of his duty. The
great crowd then quietly dispersed.
The report adds: There is much in-
dignation at the outrage, especially.-as
it would have been quite easy to bury
the deceased in Basingstoke Cemetery
with any ceremonies: the relations
might have thought proper.
The English Money Order System.
Though the money order system in
England has grown to large propor-
tions, it does not afford a revenue, to
the government, and the, more it ex-
pands the- larger are the losses incurred
in its management. In 1840 the
amount remitted through this medium
as onTy-- ,66oo6-; i,--- 83-,- h
last.year for which full returns have
been published, its transactions had
increased to $o8,oop,ooo. The Lon-
don limes, in an article on the sub-
ject, says there is always a very heavy
lI,.ilance against England on the for-
eign and colonial business. The los-
ses to the Government are the more
remarkable from the fact, as stated in
English papers, that the charges made
forremitting money througluthis me-
(dium are much higher than those paid
!for similar accommodations through
-banks. This is strange ; but it is well
known that English banks do business
on unusually small percentages. The
deficiencies of revenue from the postal
system are accounted for, partly on
the ground that many of the money
orders, are for small sums, that the
Government works for the accommo-
dation of -the, public, and that the
system must necessarily be cumbrous
.in order to be safe. That may be,
'yet why should the system become a
source of actual loss of revenue in
England, while it returns a- handsome
profit of the Government in the
United States.
About seven years ago a party of
hunter' fr6omAllegheny City, Pa.,.
went to Erie to' huit ducks on Presque"
Isle pehims ila. One obf the party, Mr.
.Chas. L. Hutchinson, lost a valuable
-g6ld watch and chain among the
numerous little ponds that intersect
the peninsula. Long and diligent
search was made, and no trace of the
watch being found, the search was
given up as a hopeless one. Mr.
Hutchinson went back to Allegheny
City, but could not forget his loss,
the watcJ being-'a gift from-a deceased
friend. Seveni ) ears have passed since
then. Last week, while in Eie on a
visit, he felt a strong inclination to
renew the search, and alone he again
.went over the ground formerly tra-
versed by him. While sitting down
among the bushes to empty his 'boots
of the. sand that had got" into them, he
chanced tQ-castli hiseyes ttpward, when
to his intense surprise and joy he saw
-the watch and chain hanging to the
liibs of a'sniail sapling, justas they
hadtf'lfug there seven .years before,
when the young twig-now g.own
quite large-had jerked them .from
his pocket!" The wood of the sapling
ha'd grown over aimd abo.ut. the chain,
holding ,t firm."- Mr. Huichinson cut
off'the branh wVithin, which the chain

Mr. J. M. Ford;- of Rosewood, writes
us: "I have a cotton plant in my front
yard- that came up last season sponta-
neously, lived' through the winter, and
to-day (June 4,) I counted of forms,
blooms and boIls, 203. Some of the
bolls are nearly ready to open. How is
ihat mor number at this season?"

ton, which promises-:to outdo the crop
of last year. .We have frequently seen
isolated instances of this sdrt, but have
not before heard of Ian entire field
ratooning. The past mild winter un-
doubtedly was the cause of so many
roots.remaining alive., Perhaps, if the
weed were cut down after picking and
the roots covered by the plow, a much
greater proportion could be kept alive,

Our Volusia County Letter.
Our readers will be glad to recognize,
in the present issue, a communication
from Volusia county, written, we say
it without any intended breach of confi-
dence, byJ.,D. Mitchell, Esq., a resi-
dent there and than whom tew have-had
more to do with the early and rapid
development of the State.
The re-appearing- of Mr. M. in the
work of bringing attention to the re-
sources and capacities of Fiorida, will
strike many of our older citizens with a
most pleasurable surprise, for Mr. M.
has for.a few years last past, been meas-
urably lost to the general view, though
none were -better known -in-the early
years of reconstruction. : .
TrQops of his friends here and else-
where, will be glad to know that we are
promised the favor -of occasional com-
municationsto the NEW SOUTHr, from
this able and much respected source.

The Last Trip ,of the North Point.
The voyage of theNorth Point, of the
Fern.adija ljne, pna her-lastktrip, was a
singularly stormy one,,.and, but for the
constant watchfulness and professional
competency of the officers ot the boat,
might have been a disastrous -one. -
Soon- after leaving Brunswick, a se-
vere and unremitting-gale from the
north-east was encountered and. its ef-
fects were endured for -seventy-two
hours, aiand the steamer i6bored severely
againsithis strong :head. wind and a
heavysea. 4.At1 one time the ship, from
some disarrangement of her engine, -lay.
_rolling in -the trough .of -the- heavy sea
several hours, while the-engine was be-
ing ,.-repaired, and: "soon after -a-B6ston
steamer in tIhe same'- predicament"' was
overhauled'.- :' : --- :, ,- :-- .
Th& vessl- being detained for several
days by this stress of weather, some
dissatistaction and grumbling was caused
but, when the gale ceased, a better
humor prevailed, and the passengers
felt constrained. to call a meeting of
which J. S. Adams,- of -Floridi, and

Tioe Ma4d.Stone, Its Wonderful Proper-
,;i ~ ties. .
."'-A correspondent of the Blooming-
ton. Pa n/agrap/h writes as follows con-
cerning the somewhat celebrated
"mad-stone" owed by .Mr. J.. P.,
E.ilns, of Lincoln : Should one take
a piaeceof!pine, wood :anAin.ch and a
u uarer long, not more than an inch
wI eL and not above half an inch
thick ,h" wb-8 1 h'.e an object that
was fully as heavy as this mad-stone.
To make this little block the
same shape, he would only need
io cut' intio the form of a flat-iron,
leaving fwo small niches 6i one side,
somewhat like but pot seven: as saw
teeth, and very slight concavity 'on'
the other. .' here is nothing about
this stone which were it noticed among
a hundred others which might be
gathered from the banks of any stream
in the country,, would make it more
attractive tlan the rest, except its pe-
culiar porous formation. In this- re-
Sspect it differs from all other stones
'bufthoserfor which the same power
possessed by this is claimed. Its sur-
face is interspersed with small pores,:
resembling very much in shape the
eye of some reptiles only they are
concave instead of convex. These
eyes or pores'extend through the stone
jn regular lines, being separated by a
grayish, flinty-appearing substance.
It-, is in these that 'the virus collects
when drawn from the would.


-.' !WHRE IT WAS FOUND
the owner does not know. All that
is -known of its history beyond four
generations back is a mystery, but
tradition fills up', the vacancy by ex-
plaining both where it came from and
how its wonderful curing ,powers cAme
to be revealed., -"On the banks -of
some eastern rivr; it' is thought the
Ganges, there was at one time a rep-J
tile fior the sting of which there was
no -kWeA'o* rernedy. 'Wliite a comp-
any ofsoilder.s were once: o.n a, forced
march one of them was bitten by this
dangerous snake, and carried by his:
comrades to the .bank of the river and
left atone to perish., The effect of the
bi;e created a thirst; he drank, and
tpnned over in agony, supposing his
hour.-of death had arrived, and as he
turned ;'his ancle, the wounded part,
fq upon a stone. In a short time he
felrrelieved and soon fell asleep. On
awVks.Ng-IW dscW'vered the stone
adhering to' his flesh. He preserved
it, and for a long time it wasI used at
first as a remedy for snake bites." '
How true this tradition is Mr.
Evans does R not presume, to say; he
relates it as it "came down from
lt'fahers.' But to the time :of his
great-grandfather- he can trace the
the stouimdtircily.-.,--tls-'great.grand-
f,&iw as,_.Iwelht-,an, and came to
tWtjii ttry.-t-ong.thfie early settlers
of:liginia. From__YVirginiahis _son,
the g'Emad&ther of- the present owner
&the stone, move to Kentucky, talk-
ing it with him from'thait State, 'Ir.
Evans fther brought it to this locali-
ty. It was T_.ri-4..-by. the laer
through the "Baclhiwk war, during.
which journey itCw"ash injured some,
part of-t,;avijTrg.Feen broken('oft and
lost. From the ab9ve it seems that
tie ''trI has' been retained in the
family as a relic of antiquity, and the
present proprietor could: not be per-,,
suaded to .part with it lorany-consid-
eration. Of : ,


', .. POWE RU't.K : : ,
there can'be no question. Hundreds
of people have been saved from ter-
rors hydrophobia by its application to
their wounds, arnd although a few
have gone so tar as to say its virtue is
a mere chimera, and that the benefic-
ial results are riot wing to the genu-
ine power of the stone, but are pro-
duced by the effects of imagination
upa the subject's mind, there can be
no question that it has genuine powers
for which it has so notorious a repu-
tation.
Mr. Evans has kept no account of
the- number of persons LO whom he
ba applied, the stone,butl intimates at
loa. -oe thoauskd since e h" op ned
it, oVe'twenty 'years. Isdi.is ope-


home to use the st6ne. The income
from it has never been estimated. Thi
charges are' always inl proportion ti
the financial circumstances of the pa
tients. The presumption is that
goodly amount hasbeen' realized iron
it. Ordinarily $30 is:the fee, but i
has been applied free of charge.
The number of applications var'
according to the bite. It takes th,
stone about one hour to 'fill with pois
on, and about fifteen minutes to empty
The latter process- is wrought by :plac
ing it in a tumbler of water. The av
erage number of applications is fron
seven to ten, althrogh a whole weel
has been spent in using it upon onm
person; 'but "6nly in one exceed-
ingly bad case was so much timi
necessary. Mr. Evans obrdinar-
ily keeps e the" subject in hi
care twenty-four hours. On plac
;ing it on' thee patient, the wounded
part is generally the place over whici
it is put, but, if difficultt to; reach
some --;ther part is opened- 'uTh
stone is first tied on, but on become
ing full, or while filling, it will beai
'its oWn weight by adhering to tht
flesh.
i On withdrawing it from a wound
emits a very unwholesome odor, anc
the water in-wich it is placed is soor
discovered to be changing into
greenish color.: After the, :poison i!
all extracted ihe stone ceases to ad
here.
S. There has been two other stones ir
this vicinity which had the formation
and were claimed to possess like pow
ers to this,' but they have never been
used with success. This seems to be
the only one known to do what it i,
represented to do. ".."
Why a mere pebble- -should have
such value, is among. the numerous
mysteries which are shoruded from the
human intellect and remain fol
science to investigate and show to the
world. In fact, such an object as a
;mad-stone is not known in the scope
of science. Those men who have
speculated upon this one, and some ol
whom we have alluded to above as
looking upon it as being of only ima-
ginary worth, have not been able to
explainits virtue. The theory of Mr.
Evans (who makes no pretense to a
knowledge of science) seems to be not
wholly unreasonable, and may be thus
stated :
SThere is no question but that the
load-stone has an attraction for cer-
tain kitids of iron; that one kind of
matter has a greater affinity, for anoth-
;er kind of matter than' for the third;
neither is' there aany question that cer-
tain elements in nature, have attrac-
tions for certain other elements, while
with a third class there cla'nibe 'no
combination. Why may not this
stone be composed of 'such elements
as to give it attraction for poison pe-
culiar to itself? Its power is not in
formation alone, because there are
iother'stonet, as we have stated above,
the cells or pores of which are almost,
if not precisely, like 'those of this.
The cells only act as receptacles for
'the poison; the virtue of the stone is
in its properties.-.
SThis is the theory of Mr. Evans.
Canrit' science'make further investi-
gation ?
SThe stone will not absorb a particle
of: blood; nothing, will enter it but
pure virus,. -- "
SMany very 'interesting cases., of the
use and power of the stove might be
irelted; but as has already been stat-
ed, hundreds can testify to its genu-
ine i worth--- andl "while your readers
might persue( with interest particular
cases, your -corresspondent will not
make this cic'municatio h longer by
relating any of them. Men'in this
county, suffering almost to death with
the results of rattlesnake bite,' have
,beel relieved in a few hours. When
everything has failed to ease.the pains
of' erysipelas; this :stone has- cured
them.' '
i This stone has never worn away
any. It has around it a band of silv-;
er, to prevent breaki-ng, 'should it fall
by accident..: It was. ever lost and
will likely never be stolen. F.

fully used for the -bite of the rattle-
snake, the spider, bee -stings, and even
scrofula and erysipelas :have both been

flesh is heir, or by which it can be af-

the stone has been applied thoroughly
not one of the subjects has been lost,
and to some the application was not
made until the persons had already
been attacked with symptoms of hy-
drophobia--having had the fits which
characterize ,that disease. But in
those who are treated early after the
bite, the effect of the application is
sooner discovered, and the virus is
withdrawn in a much shorter time
than when made at a later date after
the bite. Since in the possession of

The Improved sEsop.
BY BERT HARTE.
I. THE FOX AND THE GRAPES.
A thirsty fox onet day in passing
through a; vineyard, noticed- that the
grapes were hanging in clusters 'from
vines which .were trained'from such a
height as to be out of his reach.
S"Ah," said the fox, with a supercil-
ious smile, "I've heard of this:before.
In ithe twelfth: century 'an ordinary
fox of average culture would have
:wasted his strength and energy n the
'vain attempt to reach yonder'sour
grapes. Thanks to my"knowledge ol
vine culture, however, I at 'bhce ob-
serve that the; great height and extent
of the vine, the drain upon the sap
through the increased 'numberof ten-
drils and leaves must, if necessity, im-
poverish the grape, and render it
unworthy the consideration of an in-
telligent animal. Not any for me,
thank you." With these words he
coughed slightly and withdrew.
SMORAL-This fable teaches us that
an intelligent discretion and some
botanical knowledge are of the great-
est Importance inflgrapecultiure._
SII. THE FOX AND THE STORK.
,A fox one day invited a stork tc
dinner, but provided for the enteitain-
inent only the first course-soup.
This being in shallow dish,'of course
the fox lapped, up readily, but the
stork by means 'of his long bill was
unable to gain a mouthfil.
"You do not seem fond of soup,"
said the fox, concealing a smile in his
napkin. "Now it is one of my great-
est weaknesses."
"You certainly seem to protect
yourself outside of a large quantity,"
said the stork, rising with some dig-
'nity, and examining his watch with
great empressmnent; "but I have an ap-
*pointment at 8 o'clock which I had
forgotten. I must ask to be excused.
Au revoir. By the way, dine with me
to-morrow."
The fox assented, arrived at the ap-
pointed time, but found, as he fully
expected, nothing on the table but a
single long-necked, bottle, containing
olives, which the stork was compla-
cently extracting by the aid of his
long bill.
"Why, you do not seem to eat any-
thing," said the stork, with great
naivete, when he had finished the
bottle.
S"No," said the fox significantly,
"I am waiting for the second course."
"What is that?" asked the stork
blandly.
"Stork stuffed with olives," shriek-
ed the fox in a very pronounced man-
ner, and immediately dispatched him.
MORAL-True hospitality obliges
the host to sacrifice himself for his
guests.
III. THE WOLF AND THE LAMB.
A wolf, one day drinking from a
running stream, observed a lamb also
drinking from the same stream, at
some distance from him.
"I have yet'to learn," said the wolf,
addressing the lamb with dignified
severity, "what right you have to
muddy the stream' from which I am
drinking."
"Your premises are incorrect," re-
plied the lamb, with bland politeness,
"for if you will take the trouble to ex-
amine the current critically, you will
observe that it flcws from you to me,
and that any disturbance of sediment
here would be, so far as you are con-
cerned, entirely local."
Possibly you are right," returned
the wolf,"' but if I am not mistaken,
you are the person who, two years
ago, used some influence against me
at the primaries."
"Impossible," replied the lamb;
"two years ago I was not born."
" "Ah! well," added the wolf, com-
posedly, "I am wrong again. But it
must convince every intelligent per-
son-who has listened to this conver-
sation that I am altogether insane,
and consequently not responsible for
my actions."
S" With this remark, he at once dis-
patched the lamb, and was trium-
phantly acquitted.

less. They immediately determined up-
on its capture, but Were at first a a loss
" to hes(neas, .-(Finally Mr. Watson,
.of New York City, made up his mind to
kill it with his pocket-knife, a stout
ja-k-knilfe with a blade -about three in-
ehes long. He began cutting the ani-
mal's throat, and after cutting in about
'twenty inches-the blood flowed in 'a t6r-
rent from the wound. In about half an
hour the 'whale was dead, after going
through some pretty energetic gymnas-
tics in its "flunry.` The creature was
sixteen feet long, and the blubber was
worth about $7. It required the com-
bined efforts of seven men and a pair of
mules to driaw -the carcass out of reach
,of the high ...water. We think it -is
seldom that a similar ease of whale
fishing can be reported. : :

AN EXCELLENT HOMESTEAD FOR SALE.
I offer my homestead with, if desired, two, three or
four acres ofadjoining land, the whole now set with the
best seedling oranges, the only reason for selling being
a pecuniary inability to improve the place as it deserves.
Forty or fifty of the orange trees will undoubtedly bear
in the coming season. The whole place offers the best
chance in the-vicinity of. Jacksonville fot a first-class
hotel with spacious grounds, or for a circle of friends
who wish to live in vicinity, as the grounds will easily
admit of sub-division into three or (bur private resi-
dences, in a wholesome and every way droirable locality.

Political Outlook for 1876.
Editor New South : Next year ill btiing
lively times in the political world.
Who will be our Governor?
Many a politician would give his old shoes
to know. The boys who ate raking in the
State and County Script would certainly like
to know. But we can't tell these children. In
fact, public service Iequires, that m6st of these
pensioners be turned adrift. Little ones, we
are sorry for you, but you can not expect to
live always upon the tax-payer.
But who will be Governor ?
Stearns wants the place. But he can not
get the support of the colored voters. Of
course when they call upon Stearns in the Ex-
ecutive Chamber, to get some appointment
or other, they appear to humble 11'emselves,
and allow hintito suti,.-e lhal the)' wilt ad-
vance his views, bti tita t is all b,.sti. -The
colored element will not support .Stearns..
Now Stearns has really one good point in
his favor. He has done one good thing. .He
has .in this respect, acted manfully, and.-i the
interest of Florida. He deserves will of the
people. He has fought the Savannah influence,
directed to capturing our ra iToad system. But
after all, it is Bisbee who is entitled to the
real cedit- of thi- -i,'tih ..uinete.l battle. Judge
Baker thinks thi thi' time smill come when
even Conservatives will appreciate Bisbee's
services.
Some say that Conoverhas a good showing
for the gubernatorial chair. All right, put
him in there. He has shown himself a lilber-
al and successful Senator. The colored lead-
ers are in his favor. The carpet-baggers be-
lieve he will succeed. 'The Southern Loyalists
understand that- he has always -recognized
their claims. The Conservatives prefer him
to Stearns.
Close corporations, "get down and step
out!" The people don't like you!

under the name-of "Palatka."
