Oan Printer Nhoet Another in Coun
About tix o'clock last Monday evening
the Council Bluffs evening Times office
was the scene of a terrible tragedy. The
particulars as related by the Nonpareil,
are as follows : Austin has for some time
been an employee at the Times ofllce a
gi)od printer, but addict ed to d rinking, and
when under the influence of liquor quar
relsome, and insolently overbearing and
insulting in his language. Bell is also a
printer and had been to work in the
Times office in place of Austin, during
the !ay. About fifteen minute- before
eix o'clock Bell was iu the 2?mpireil
office, and said to the compositors that
h.3 had seme difficulty with Austin, and
rhat there might be more of it signifi
cantly adding that if Austin returned to
the attack and gave him sufficient provo
cation, he should "go for him." Bell
returned to the office, and was again met
by Austin, who renewed the war of
words. Opprobioua epithets were
passed, Bell standing upon the sidewalk
and Austin staggering around in the
office near the door. In reply to some
remark addressed to the proprietor by
Austin, Bell called Austin a liar, and the
latter made a rush out of the door to
ward Bell. He missed his aim and stag
gered off the sidewalk. Recovering, he
again started toward Bell, who drew his
revolver and fired, the ball striking Aus
tin over the right eye, passing entirely
through the upper portion of the brain,
and lodging against the cranium in the
back part of the head.
Austin fell upon the sidewalk, where
he remained for some moments in a com
atose state, the blood oozing from the
wound. He wad subsequently taken
into the rear room of Gray's office, where
he revived sufficiently to converse with
pome of his friends. Thence he was ta
kea to the Washington House, and fi
nally to the buildij? adjoining, where he
now i. Here the wound was thoroughly
probed, and the ball found as above
stated, having traversed the skull for
seven inches. Drs. Hart, Scott and
Malcomb, with whom we conversed,
agree in the opinion that his chances of
recovery are as one to a thousand. At
12 o'clock last night his pulse was about
SO, and his breathing not stentorious.
Bell, after the fatal hot, remarked to
the bystanders "I have finished Austin
and myself, too." He then walked over
to the office of Montgomery, Heed &
fair.es, where he was soon after arrested
by officer Jackson, and taken to the coun
luis deplorable affair iniDerilin? the
lives of two men is the direct result of
that never-to-be-sufficiently -deprecated,
and utterly reprehensible practice of
carrying deadly weapons.

A couple of suspicious looking char
acters weie noticed hanging arowu the
putiic places of our city on Monday la.-t,
and a close watch was kept over their
Uioveuients. They ha i no dinner any
where, but loaied around loose. In the
af:ernoon one of theui was detected in
the act of stealing a pair of pants. No
officer happened to be o.i hand, and a
posse of men took the tui.'eraoie feilow
down into the woods below the city, and
administered a round number of laches
on his back wi.h a whip. He was then
put aero.-s the river, and advised to keep
scarce in thrs vicinity, which be said he
would do with the utmost saii.-faction.
The whole affair was so quietly con
dm -ted that it attracted no attention, and
nobody except the actors knew anything
of it, by some of whom it was told next
day. Bi'iiicuriile Drnmcrnt.

seem beyond belief iu this age of en

fear of Lord or law before his eyes, has

have stolen books of ail kinds carried
off the children's copy books, ink, pen
holders, and. but last week, the school
house was entered and things scattered
around in wild con'usion, aui books, etc.,
and the wed and water buckets sto.en.
Tbe Church has lost thus about one-
half of a fifty dollar Sunday School Li

beyond our power to imagine, and e

discovered, could be put iu penitentiary.

There are few of us who have a proper
sense of the duty of cheerfulness. We
are willing to be gay aud happy, and to
let the world know that we are o, when
we have a special reason tor ic ; but it is
hard work wearing a show ot happiness,
when the substance is lac ing, an l it is
but few who are wiiiing to make the sus
tained effort that the task demands, mid
yet it is easy to cultivate a habitual spirit
of cheerfulness that, not only will make
others who come in contact with us happy,
but will pi event ou.-elves troiu bciug
miserable. There is piency of evil lit

ment, disappointment, lusiucenty and
poverty, to make p-ople wretched, ii'j
they desire to be -o : me geat difficulty
and duty is to be cheerful in sniie of
these adverse agencies. It seemb hard,
but it is possible. W'e owe it to our
selves, and we owe it more to our friends
to cherish genial good nature that lias a
sympathetic eye, a giowing, bright face,
and a warm, responsive heart to greet
the world with. It is oue of the mot
effective of all means of doing good. It
may seem strange, but it.is certainly true,
that some jjersons would rather be un
happy than not at least they would
rather appear to be wreteded than the
contrary. 1 h.y are never so we'd satis
fied as when miserable. They are cold
shadows that shatter the feeble bars of
soul sunshine accorded to us here, into
tremulous aud affrighted fragments, and
throw a di-ma. silence around them wher
ever they go. Kind words and gentle
looks cost nothing ; and yet they are
often more grateful to the poor aud op
pressed than purses of gold.

The introduction into an Eastern fac
tory, in the very heart of New England,
of seventy-five Chinese laborers, takes
the country somewhat by surprise. The
treatment New England will accord to
thse men will soon be known. It re
mains to be feen whether th-y are to b
met by the same in.-!ise prejudice that
clogs their footsteps iu t'alit'o-.nia and
shuts them out from all social intercourse
and privilege- The staid and dillivent
Yankee will not hastily place himself in
a hostile attitude before these strangers.
But if he sees in the success of his firt
venture the prelude to a vat influx of
cheap foreign labor, which is to cheapen
that of the American workshop and fac
torj. he will arouse a storm that cannot
be easily allayed. But in this connection
it must be remen)lered that many of the
workmen of the New England lactones
are foreign born.'
When the Union Pacific Railroad was
first completed, the question of Chinese
labor was widely atitated and earnestly
discussed. An intelligent Christian sen
timent everywhere demanded room and
place for the stranger. But it cannot be
defied that there was uneasiness, deep
and profound, among the day laborers
and in the workshops of the country.
There is a problem before the country in
connection with this question of labor,
that ha excited much thoughtful solici
tude among statesmen and political econ
omists. 'I he inquiry is often heard, will
labor in this country soon, if ever, return
to the prices prevalent before the war?
The ready response in the mind cf many
is in the affirmative ; and many o hers
have believed that the resumption of
specie payments will be the prelude to
this result. Vet it is worthy of consid
eration he; her this shadow, gathering
darkness to the fnind of the laborer,
does not receive a deeper shade iu view

In January, 1S65, Mr. T. E. Roberts,
while traveling on the Toledo & Wabash
railroad, was iu a car which was thrown
off the track, and sustained injuries for
which he sued the company for damages.
After hearing all the testimony, in which
it was stated by the defendant that Mr.
Robers was at the time traveling on a
free pass, Judge Brady, of the Supreme
Court, charging the Jury, said that as be
understood the lav iu his State, ( N. Y.)
as laid don by the Court of Appeals,
the defendants in this ca-e would not be
liaule for any ordm.ny acts of negligence
on the part of their agents, provided at
the time of the accident, the plaintiff
was traveling on a free pass, oy the
terms of which it appea.ed that the
company had given notice that they
would not be responsible lor damages.
The J u Ige said that it had not yet been
decided that, with a free pass, .railroad
companies could not be made reso;isibie
iu jases of gross negligence. In this
case he did not think any gross negli
gence had been shown. Carriers of pas

Gipp's Land, says the Times, wasdepos
ited in the Hank of Victoria, early in
February. The nugget weighed 43 ozs,
3 dwts., and was pure gold of good qual
