consternation among a
tbcr numerous class of our
red population, known as chicken
lifters, owing to twe very mysterious
accident! which occarred to members
of the brotherhood laat Friday night.
It is a fact as well established as that the
world revolves on its axis, that nicely
baked chicken pie, in large and fre
quent doses, is essential to many a
darkey's happiness. If the honot ones
have not enough of Spinner's autographs
to get the chief ingredient honestly, they
first discover a densely populated hen
roost, provide themselves with a box of
matches (liberally tipped with sulphur),
und after bribing the dogs about the
place with a nice piece of beef, spiced
with strychnine, sally forth for a raid,
about the time when church yards even
grow sleepy and yawn. This trait of
character is so well defined that to pre
sent any opposition to its free exercise
almost amounts to a violation of that
part of the Constitution which guaran
tees protection to every man in the pur
suit ofhappiness. It is even said that
the late lamented Sumner at one time
contemplated presenting a bill in Con
gress, supplementary to the Civil Rights
bill, which should make it a crime pun
ishable with imprisonment for a man to
keep a shotgun who was engaged in the
poultry business. But, alas! he died be
fore his mission was fulfilled, and this
fair land transformed Into an Eden for
chicken lifters. No city in the country
has suffered more from this class of vag
abonds titan 3Iemphis, but, thanks to
Frencli ingenuity, a panacea for the
growing evil has been discovered, and
its name is "tie torpedo chicken." This
little machit! is as near a chicken as
human skill can make it. It is covered
with feathers, with perfect head, legs
and wings. It is soft to the touch, and
the legs and wings are flexiblo andean
be moved and placed In positions simi
lur to those of a genuine chicken, and
when set upon a perch the deception can
not oe discovered even by an expert.
Like other chickens, too, if a burning
match is placed near its nose it topples
off the perch, and when it docs it falls
with the weight and destructiveness of
a bombshell. Inside of tho automaton
is placed a torpedo, which explodes if it
is taken by tho legs or struck with any
force. Hearing of this ingenious ma
chine, a Front-street merchant recently
ordered a number of them with which to
experiment. Some half dozen of them
were secretly distributed Friday to per
sons who complained of annoyance from
chicken thieves, and about the time
other chickens seek their roosts they
were placed conspicuously in the lien
house, and the persons setting them re
tired to bed to await results. A widow
lady named Mrs. P. Simmons, living in
Fort Pickering, who lias been much an
noyed, and whose watch dog was poi-
soned only a few nignts fincc, was so
anxious to know the result of the experi
ment that she sat up to await the coming
of the visitors. About 1 o'clock she
heard some subdued voices outside the
fence which surrounds her house, and
soon after the scrambling noise made by
a person climbing over the fence. Soon
tlnre was a fluttering in the hen house,
a subdued cackle, and then a noise like
the discharge of a heavily loaded gun.
An agonized shriek of , pain and retreat
ing footsteps told of the success of the
machine. The lady, who before was
filled with anger and thought only of
vengeance on tho thieves who had so
frequently taken her chickens, was now
filled with alarm and half way regretted
having used the torpedo chicken. She
did not have the courage to go out doors
alone, but called to a neighbor who had
been aroused by the report. He accom
panied her to tho hen house, where a
great noise was being made by the sur
viving chickens. Several had been killed
and some maimed by the explosion. A
search was made for the torpedo chicken,
which was finally found among the
wreck of poultry. Tho body ot the
machine was blown to atoms; but its two
legs were found intact, tightly grasped
by a huge black hand, which had been
literally torn from the arm. Death never
held tighter to a dead nigger than did
this negro's dead hand grasp those two
chicken legs. As before stated, the ne
gro raa away as fast as it was possible
in his wounded condition, and if any
onu finds a negro with a hand freshly
shot off, let him inform Chief Athy ot the
Another negro was brought to grief
the same night, by one of the same in
struments, in the eastern suburbs. Traces
of blood were discovered leading from
- the chicken roosts, and it is believed he
will be arrested.
Thia is, indeed, a great invention, and
vastly superior to a trap gun. Its gen
eral use will soon rid our city of a large
number of chicken thieves who infest it.
The inventor, when he dies, should be
canonized. Memphis AvalancJu.
Wasklagtart White Horses.
According to G. W. P. Custb' recol
lections, the grooming of Washington's
white horses was something surprising.
The night before the hsrses were ex
pected to be ridden they were covered
entirely over with a paste, of which
whiting was the principal component
part; then the animtls were swathed in
body-clothes, and left to sleep upoa clean
atraw. In the moraine the composition
had become hard, was well rubbed is,
and curried and brushed, which process
gave to the coats a beautiful glossy and
satia-like appearance. The hoofs were
thus blacked and polished, the months
washed, teeth picked, and cleaaed, aad
the leopard-skin housings beiag prop
erly adjwted, the white chargers were
led rat tor service.

The London newspapers print copious
accounts of the crossing of the Channel
on May 29. A brief report of the feat
appears in the London Echo. A corres
pondent of that journal writing from
Folkestone on May 29, says:
At a very early hour this morning
Folkestone was abnormally excited by
the news, which spread with lightning
rapidity, that Capt. IJoyton had effected
a very successful landing immediately
beneath the South Foreland Light house
at 2 :30. The fact was announced by the
firing of a rocket from the bout of the
steamer that had piloted him in bis ad
venturous journey, and the loud cheer
ing of those on the steamer's deck, as
the Captain was taken on board, testified
to the general enthusiasm and admira
tion for his prowess. The cool deter
mination and astonishing powers of en
durance which were displayed by Capt
IJoyton throughout the journey were
subjects of man-el on the part of those
who watched hira from the steamer.
When he emerged from the water he ex
hibited very slight symptoms of distress
or fatigue. The temperature of the body
taken at once by the medical gentlemen
in attendance, showed it to be but one
degree in excess of the average tem
perature of a man in full health. The
only thing of which the Captain com
plained was a slight swelling of the
wrist, caused by the Incessant labor of
paddling, and his face was likewise
somewhat sore, due to the action of the
sun and salt water during an immersion
of nearly twenty-four hours. The steamer
arrived at the landing-stage at Folke
stone at 4. o'clock, and from iulormation
there obtained it appears that the time
when Capt. Boyton made most progress
was between 0 and 7 yesterday evening,
accomplishing in the hour a mile and
three-quarters. While off Dover the
Wiltshire life-boat .'came alongside, and
the officer in charge said he had been
instructed by the National Institution in
London to meet Capt. Boyton in the
vimuuuj, uuu in us name to wish mm a
speedy and successful journey. Within
half an hour of his arrival in Folkestone
Capt. Boyton presented himself at the
breakfast table of the Pavilion Hotel,
where he was enthusiastically received
by a large body of gentlemen who had
witnessed his wonderful performance
from the steamer. In acknowledgment
of the compliment paid him, Capt. Boy
ton said : "I think I have fairly and
squarely crossed the channel from France
to England, and the Channel can, there
fore, no longer be said to be master of
the situation." He then retired to rest
at the Pavilion.
Further particulars run as lollows:
The course steered during the journey
was north-north-east-by-half-cast, and
then north-norlh-wcst-by-wesr. The most
tedious part ot the journey was the latter
portion. The sea was then exceedingly
calm, and we knew success was certain,
so strong did the swimmer appear, and
so sanguine was the steamer's Captain as
to the right course we were going. The
delay, however, was caused by there
being a slack tide, and but little way
was made in our progress until tide did
come, .and then .at a given signal from
Capt. Boyton we bent with no little
swiftness for the Fan Bay shore. An in
cident worth recording as showing an
American's coolness at a moment of
supreme excitement took place as the
rocket announcing the swimmer's land
ing llew upward from the beach. At
the moment in question Michael Boyton,
the brother of the Captain, was standing
on the paddle-box, with eager eyes bent
towards the shore. As the signal of sucj
cess met Ids sight he raised himself to
his full height, and shouted out loudly
and calmly to his brother this message:
"Come back now. That will do for to
The whole time that Capt. Boyton was
in the water was twenty-three hours and
thirty-eight minutes, i On the first trip it
will be rememl)crcd that he remained in
the water for fifteen hours. The doctors
agree that the patient's pulse at the close
being 71 degrees, was in itself a strong
proof that his physical condition was
not much disturbed by his exertions, and
also the fact that his temperature was on
this occasion 90 degreesinstead of U7
degrees, as on the last trip, when he was
obliged to relinquish his attempt, proved
that he was in better health on the last
occasion. Thus he has, in a very great
measure, established the character and
reputation he has claimed, for his life
saving dress since its introduction to the
notice of the public 'on this side of the
The part of the Kentish coast where
Capt. Boyton came on shore was wild in
the extreme. There is from the sea
inward a small stretch of rocks and
dense seaweeds, and behind rise cliffs
averaging in height fully 200 feet. As
the rockets ascended announcing his
landing, the.birds rushed in flocks from
their eyrie nests, and their screams of
alarm made hideous discordance in the
It will be remembered that emigra
tion from the Eastern and Middle States
to California and the Pacific slope dur

dreams of the emigrant on his arrival

A Calerew Farmer's Frail.
The Petersburg (Va.) Index-Appeal jays
that Washington Jones, an industrious
colored citizen of Dinwiddie, made on
his farm in that county last year the
following fine crop, with the assistance
of one man, a girl, and a boy, and only
one mule to plow:
5,57.1 lbs. tobacco, netting him f 058.18
2 bales cotton 170.00
CO bushels wheat 78.00
70 brls. corn 280.00
5,000 lbs. fodder 50.00
Tops and shucks 25.00
150 lbs. seed corn 4.00
The Hog Crop.
The Agricultural Department has sta
tistics carefully collected by responsible
persons in the seven hog States, which
show that in January last there were in
those States on the hoof 11,213,800 hogs.
They were divided as follows:
It is estimated that the returns from
other States will make the hog crop for
this year over 18,000,000 head.
To Purify a Sink.
In hot weather it is almost impossible
to prevent the sinks becoming foul, un
less some chemical preparation Is used.
One pound of copperas dissolved in four
gallons of water, poured over a sink
three or lour times, will completely de
stroy the offensive odor. As a disinfect
ing agent, to scatter around premises af
fected with any unpleasant odor, noth
ing is better than a mixture of four parts
dry ground plaster of Paris to one part
of fine charcoal, by weight. All sorts of
glass vessels and other utensils may be
effectually purified from offensive smells
by rinsing them with charcoal powder,
after the grosser impurities have beep
scoured off with sand and soap.
Small FruitM for the Northwest.
The idea is coming to be more aud
more favorably received that for much
of the Northwest increased attention
must be uiven to the culture of grapes,
strawberries, raspberries, etc., to secure a
supply of fruits with certainty, and with
out long waiting. This does not imply
discouragement as to ultimate general
success in growing the apple, and per
haps some varieties of the pear, plum,
and cherry. But the faet that with prop
er protection in winter a supply of grapes
and berries can almost certainly bo se
cured each year, places tho culture of
these on a basis far more satisfactory
than can be claimed lor tree fruits in ex
tensive regions in the Northwest. It is
compensation for the extra cost and la
bor, and for the latter season in the far
North, that injury from late spring
frosts scarcely ever occurs, and that fruit
of most excellent quality is secured with
must, in any event, be a light one this
season. It lacked rain in the spring,
and, however much it may get it in June,
it cannot be thus brought up to its full
average standard. Upland prairie hay,
indeed, may, with plenty of moist weath
er, produce a full crop; but hay gener
ally, as we have before predicted, must
undoubtedly be worth more this season,
relatively, thau any other crop, unless
farmers sow an increased area of millet
and Hungarian grass. These may be
sown even up to the 1st of July, but we
should prefer not to put it off later than
the 15th to the 20th of June.
As a rule, this important implement
is so little used in hay making in the
West that many farmers do not know
what tho machine is. We arc led to
speak of this from the inquiry of a cor
respondent. A hay tedder is a two wheeled imple
ment, drawn by a horse, which catches
and turns the hay as it is left by the
mower, spreading and airing it, thus
causing it to cure more easily and quick
ly than it otherwise would. It is espe
cially valuable in "catching" seasons,
often enabling the possessors to get the
hay in good condition, that otherwise
would be severely injured by rain. That
they have not come into use in the West
is undoubtedly due to the fact that, at
the season of .making hay, the weatheris
usually hot and dry, and. consequently
the necessity for this implement is not
so much felt as in the Atlantic States.
In the moist climate of England it is
almost indispensable, since it entirely
supersedes the turning and shaking out
by hand practiced there.
We have seen and have raised in Illi
nois crops of Hungarian hay so heavy
that it conld not be cured on the ground
without successive turnings by hand. A
tedder would have entirely obviated this
difficulty. One machine will turn and
stir the hay in the swath about as fast
as two mowing machines will cut it.
We think the farmer who has from 50 to
100 acres of grass to cut can well afford
to own one of these labor-saving ma
