A dispatch from New Orleans an nounces that Judge Billings, of the United States District Court at that place, has rendered a decision in the case of Mrs. Ifyra Clark Gaines who claims several millions of dollars' worth of property in that city, in favor of the claimant This is a phase of one of the longest and most interesting lawsuits in the annals of American jurispru dence. The history of the case Is briefly as follows: Mrs. Gaines is the widow of General Edmund Pendleton Gaines, and was born in New Orleans in 1805. Iler father, Daniel Clark, was bom in the County Sligo, Ireland, in 17C6and emigrating to New Orleans, inherited a considerable property from his uncle in 1799. Before the acquisition of Lou isiana he was American Consul there, and represented the Territory in Con gress in 1800. In August, 1813, Daniel Clark died, and his property was dis posed of under a will, dated May 20th, 1811, which gave the bulk of his estate to his mother, Mary Clark, who was then living in Germantown.Ta. He 'X Mi war also supposed to be a bachelor, .but -Is - ' was known to have had a "liason" with a very beautiful young Creole, Zulime des Granges. Two daughters were born of this connection, one at Philadelphia in April, 1802, and the other, Myra, at New Orleans in 1805. The latter was taken to the house of Colonel Davis, a ,'friend of 4 Clark's, nursed "by a Mrs. Harper, and grew up in Philadelphia, where she was known as Myra Davis. & i gjn 1880, Mr. Davis, being then a mem ber of the Pennsylvania Legislature, sent home for certain papers, and, in searching for these, Myra discovered -' 8onMjatteraswbicbBartiaUy.wvieaJei 8ift niie'secreVof lieri)Trth, aHaTef tMe foundation of the lawsuit which has . jFK si since bcoiQe fSmous. , 7 fj .

Mr. and MrsWhitneyi went immedi ately to Cuba, and there, after a long search, discovered the writer of the letter, and, with the aid of evidence given by him,vbegan suit in New Or leans for the property of Daniel Clark, which Lad in the meantime Tbecome im mensely valuable, and included a great part of the present business quarter of the city. , On th;iaPpf this suit the Mrs. Harper abqvtf mentioned testified that, four weeks before'his death, Clark showed her the will he had made In favor of Myra, and acknowledged the child's legitimacy. Baron de Boiston taine testified that Clark had made the same statements to him. On this and other corroborative evidonce the lost will was received bv thp.Sunr.mi n.rt I or Louisiana, on February 18, 1856, as the last'wilTand testament of Daniel Clark, though the document itself could not be found. The objection was then interposed that by the laws of Loui siana a testator could not make devises to his adulterine bastard. On this point, however, two sisters of Myra's mother testiDei that Zulime des Granges was privately married to Clark in their presence in Philadelphia, in 1803, by a Catholic priest, it having been learned that Zulime's reputed husband, Des Granges, had another wife living, and was therefore not legally married. In another suit growing out of this dif ficult the TJnited States SupremeCourt decided that the marriage and legiti- uiuvy ol juyra was established. -. In.Ui5meantime.Mr.Whitneydied, v WstwWowmiuTied General Gaines, whom she has also outlived. Assisted by the General, Mrs. Gaines continued her litigation, and in 1856, in the Su- ' I preme Court of the United States, filed a bill in equity to recover valuable real estate, therein the possession of the city &1 5ewrinand a decision in her .,- faVOr Was rendrp1 in icfl-r m - xavor was rendered in 1867.

On several occasions, and notably in the Supreme Court of the United States, in 1861, she has pleaded her own cause personally and with re markable success.

Locke, Cheaper Beef Waste la Lately, much attention is given to the fact, that American beef is successfully shipped to Engladd; and that this American exportation of beef is rapidly increasing. The steamers that run be tween this country and England have provided ample accommodation for. this class of freight, and the business prom ises to become very large. It is success ful because the American shippers are able to undersell the English butchers. This statement of the case is made: "Good beef that just tickles the palate of an English epicure, can be trans ported, through the middlemen, from Texas or Colorado, butchered, shipped to' England, and there sold, at a fair profit, for an average of less than nine cents per pound." Housekeepers in New England will naturally think and reason a little over this statement They will ask, with some earnestness: "now is it that .we, on this side of th Atlantic, are ablifed to pay from 12 to 25 cents a pound for beef of the same kind?" And they are not likely to get a satisfactory answer. If beef can be shipped to England, and there sold, at a profit, for an average of less than 0 cents a pound, it must be that enor mous profits are realized, by somebody, on the beef sold in our markets, and that there is great need of "reform" in this feature of the trade in beef. And it is tolerably certain that this reform will be secured. At present ,weheajc nothing of any prospect 6f more reason able prices in our markets; but we do hear of changes in contemplation, which will reduce the cost; of beet to the ship pers. It is said that the cattle will be butchered in the Western States where they are bought, and the beef be sent to the shipping ports in refrigerator Cars.-This will lesssen the cost; and, it is claimed, that beef from the re frigerator cars will be in better condi tion for shipment Worcester Spy. 3 A Wonderful aid Natural Cariosity. f Ajiatural curiosity of an extraordi nary character is to be seen at the Mining Registrar's office, Sandhurst It te'&Mlf the mantlepiece. and the iptjfttering the room and look ing in that direction, sees a small but very pretty and. cleverly-executed land scape painting some six inches square.

There is a legend about eoffee a le gend in wh'ch a pious Mussulman is the hero. The Mussulman used to get sleepy during his devotions, and so he prayed to Mohammed, who came to his aid. Mohammed sent him for advice a goatherd, who took a hint from his goats. He observed that when these animals ate the berries of a particular tree they got frisky and'excited bound ed about all the night, in fact The Mussulman took the hint ate the coffee berries, slept less, and no doubt prayed better. That was the legend. That coffee, however, was sold lb the streets of Cairo toward the end of the sixteenth century is not a matter of legend, but history. In fact, it was not only sold but it was forbidden to be sold. An Arabian historian recounts that in the jear 1538 a cafe was attacked by the authorities, and the customers who were found on the ipot hurried off to I priaonfrom wMchhey" were not lib erated till they hadech received sev enteen strokes with a stick, for the en couragement of others!

There was nothing in her attire to dis tmgnish her'sex, as she sat astride ie fiery horse she was managing with a cruel Spanish bit in its mouth, save her small neat-fitting gaiters, and sweeping raven locks. She wore coat and pan taloons of buckskin, gayly beaded and fringed, fur-trimmed vest of tanned antelope skin, and a broad-brimmed Spanish hat completed her costume. Throwing herself from side to side in the saddle with the daring self-confidence of a Calif ornia buchario in full career, she spurred her horse up on the gulch, over ditches, and through reser voirs and mud-boles, at each leap of the fractious animal giving as good an imi tation of a Sioux war-whoop as a femi nine voice is capable of. "Calamity "Jane" is a character in the moantains. She has redeeming qualities. Every body may have. She cocees from a Virginia City, Nev, family of respecta bility and intelligence. The first step to ruin taken, she had not the moral courage to seek retrievement what encouragement would she have received bad she attempted to do so? andstill there were levels of infamy and degra dation to which she could not sink. If she must be "a woman of the world," she would at least save her independ ence of character, while following the path of infamy through all its dark windings, she would continue mistress of her own destiny. She sought not the sympathy of kindred associations, but preferred to stand alone, in brave defiance of a frowning world. Donning male attire in the mining-regions of Nevada, where no legal restraints were imposed upon such freaks of iniquitous eccentricity, she "took to the road," and has ever since been nomadic in her habits, now forming one of a hunting party, then participating in a mining stampede, again attached to and moving with a freighting train, and, it is said, she has even rendered good service as a scout in an Indian campaign. She has had experience as a stage-driver, and can draw the reins over six horses as skillfully as a veteran Jehu, and bandits a revolver with dexterity, and fires itfas accurately as a Texes ranger.

About a mile from the center of Babylon Village, Long Island, Btandsa house which has for some time been unoccupied. It was some time ago fit ted up for the occupancy of a newly married couple, but shortly after they moved into it the young bride died, and the building was again left vacant Within a few weeks past strange sounds ami flitting lights have been seen in the house; occasionally a pale, wan face would appear at one of the windows in the dead of night, and piteous wals would issue apparently from between the livid lips, and then the "perturbed spirit" would wander from room to room throughout the house, as if look ingforsomething that could never be found. Babylon enjoyed the sensation of having a "haunted house." Some of the young fellows in the neighborhood, however, were not superstitious to the extent of being afraid to make an inves tigation, and one night last week two or three of them concealed themselves in the buildfngto await the "ghost's" appearance. About the -hour when churchyards yawn" one of the windows opened, and his ghostship entered in a very unghostly manner, and com menced his unusual performance, his form being just distinguishable in the darkness. In the middle of one of his most interesting acts the concealed per sona crept slowly onfall fours to the spot and suddenly grasped him by the ankles, a proceeding which was fol lowed by a series of terrific shrieks very human in their tone, and indicating an agony of fear, and it was some time before the bogus ghost was brought to the point of believing that he had not been seized by a real one. The expla nation of his proceeding is found in the fact that a certain person was desirous of owning the house, but the proprietor refused to part with it on the terms offered, and this novel method was adopted by the would-be purchaser to depreciate the market value of the property. At present the laugh is de cidedly against him. N. T. Times. c - Facing Death. Brother Gardner was yesterday white washing the back end of an old house on Catharine street, when the staging gave way and he had a fall of about fifteen feet He was senseless when picked up, but a man poured about a gallon of cold water down his back and brought him to. Mr. Gardner thus ex plained matters to the reporters: "Waal, I was up dar, an' dar was de house, an' dar was de scaffold, an dar we all was. Iwasjessdrawin'datbrush aroun' to kill when I felt a goneness. Seemed I was prancin' aroun' on de air, wid no chance to dig in my toes." "Why didn't you fall at once, and have the affair off your mind?" asked a policeman. Why didn't I fall? Why,sah,Iwas fallin all the time. I went down "bout fifty feetvhead fust, an' den I changed and went; sideways, and den I struck on one foot and boaf ears. All dis time I was doin' some powerful thinkin', I was." "Did you think of oysters fried with crumbs?" asked a reporter. kboari'-De Ttalkin' dat way, boy. I fmembered all my bad deeds while I was gwine down, an' I called out that I wdnldlive a better life if de shock didn't kill me." In the group was a colored man, whose face brightened at these words, and he softly asked: "Brudder Gardner, doan' yon 'member de $2 you borrowed o me?" "I do." "Den pay it han' it over. De shock didn't, kill you, and now begin on dat better life." "Brudder Jones," solmenly replied Gardner, "de shock didnt kill me dead, but befo I pays out any money Ize gwine to 'wait the result on my nervous system.

A Kls Wat-iss; Passcfw Feet King Alfonso, who recently made the tour of Spain, on his arrival at Seville signified his desire to conform with the traditional custom on HolrTharsday for Kings to wash the feet of twelve agvd paupers, and then to attend on them at a sumptuous table laid out si the expense ef tne Crown, fleferring to this fact a correspendent writes: About 200 persons alone had been in vited to witness this sceae in the lull of the Ambassadors. The old Moorish Alcazar very beautiful, and its patios and principal courts have been restored in the sty to originally designed from the Arabic models. The doors, the ceil ings, the pavements, and the light airy architecture, carry you back to the days of the eld conquerors of Andalusia, though modern innovations mar the splendor of every part of the structure. In the hall of the Ambassadors a high table had been raised for the old men, and facing it was a platform for Queen Isabella and the Infantas. They soon appeared dressed in pale blue silk, with long white lace mantillas. The crowd pressed forward despite the efforts of the halberdiers, and of the sen-ante of the Royal household. In that Moorish Court were assembled the very elite of Sevilian society, and at least half of those injesent were faces well knows in Madrid. The ladies all wore the black or white mantilla, and uniforms were not scarce. When the King appeared, surrounded by the officers of the house hold, and by the gold keys, the greatest trouble was to get a glimpse over the fair occupants of Uie front rank. By dint of perseverance we secured a cor ner, and witnessed the King's part in the ceremony. After a short prayer said by the Archbishop, clad in flue vestments of gold and embroidered satin, his Majesty went through the op eration of washing the feet of the poor, who were led to the table by the cham berlains and equerries. They handed King Alfonso the dishes laden with meat bread, and fruit which the young monarch set before his aged subj :ts, with a good humored smile. Several times, indeed, his Majesty laughed out light when an awkward chamberlain nearly upset a plate or dish at the im minent risk of sailing gilt cloak and brilliant uniform. During the whole time the band played selections from the 'Ave Maria' of Gounod, and other sacred music. When King Alfonso, surrounded by his grandees and officers, and escorted by the halberdiers, crossed the court yard to repose before thepro cession hour came on, he appeared rather fatigued." Juns; Bahadoor. . The,mo8t elaborate and magnificent entertainer of the Prince of Wales when in India was Sir Jung Bahadoor, the Prime Minister of Nepaul. It was he that got up the tiger-hunt on elephant back. Two hundred and fifty elephants surrounded a district of Jungle, and drove the tigers, leopards, panthers, hy enas, and other interesting game, into a contracted space, where the British Prince and other sportsmen had some splendid fun shooting the felines as they sprang at or upon the elephants. This Indian Prince has recently died, and an exchange says: "Three of his widows have revived the ancient prac tice of suttee by burning themselves with bis remains on a funeral pyre. In those parts of India governed directly by Englishmen, suttee has been com pletely suppressed, but Nepaul is one of the semi-independent States where the ancient code in many respects holds sway. Sir Jung died while at his devo tions, and his wives resolved to seek the highest consolation. They piled the pyre with sandal-wood, the first lady took the head of the corpse between her knees and the others sat around it while the chief mourner lighted the pile. This custom is said to take its rise from a mistranslation of the sacred Vedas,but it must be a pretty old one, for the first historic Instance of it precedes the Christian era by ten centuries. It was supported by the Brahmins as an easy way of settling questions,, of dower. The present recurrence of it is so shock ing to the British people that it is likely to prove the occasion of more super vision of States like Nepaul." Approach-as; Loade. Long before one reaches London the smoke of that great city can be seen darkening the air and forming a heavy rim on the distant horizon. London is so vast that it is hard to tell where the city ends and the country begins, but many miles before reaching the city proper the approach is marked by clus ters of Tillages and outlaying suburbs, with an occasional public building or palatial residence. In the occasional stoppages of the train the distant roar of the city can be heard even before its spires can be seen, and a heavy, rumb ling sound, like suppressed thunder, seesas to fillthe air. It is like the roar of the sea, and London might be ap propriately termed an ocean of hu manity. C. M. Walker in Indianapo lis Journal. Hiffh The notion that high foreheads, in women as well as men, are indispensa ble to beauty, came into vogue with phrenology, and is going oat, with the decline of that pretentious and plausi ble "science." Not long ago, more than one "fine lady" shaved her head to give it an "intellectual" appearance; and the custom of combing the hair back from the forehead probably originated in the same mistaken ambition. When it is considered that agreed expanse of fore head gives a bold masculine look that from frons (forehead) comes the word leffrnntery.'it wfflnot be wondered that the ancient painters, sculptors and poets considered a low forehead "a charming thing in woman," and, indeed, indisptn saMe to female beauty.

Little more than a down years ago Prince Chris tiaa of Schlatwig-Holtteln SxK-rxburf Glucluburg was one of the most ob scure of European princeJeU. It U true that he was the ack-Kmletbrad heir of King Frederick VII. of Denmark and the Duchies. But tills cousin was a man in the prime of life, little older than himself; he was sot next in the succession even to the Danish throne; and it was always possible that the re signing sovereign might revoke the nom ination given to Prince Christian in favor of th Dukes of Sonderburg Au-guslenburg-, who had a better legal title. It was always possible, too, the King might marry legally his morganatic wife, the Countess Dinner. The late sovereign had no love for h?s successor, and provided very sparingly for his wants, so that the heir presumptive to the Danish throne was reckoned poor even in the thrifty capital of Denmark. Indeed, if Copenhagen gossip of a dozen years ago is correct money was so scanty in Prince Christian's household that the Princess used to walk home from the Court balls in order to avoid the expense of a carriage. Now all this is changed as if by magic. The eldest daughter of the King is Prin cess of Wales, the second is wife of the Czare witch of all the Russia, and the younger son is King of Greece. The Coburgs and the Glucksburgs between them will soon be represented on well nigh every throne in Europe. It is only fair to add that nobody could have borne a sudden change of fortune better than the Princess Alexandra. Toronto Qlobe. " Important Historical Letter. V-ry IaUrMtla Facta Abomt m Noted Ittdl-Ji ChUf. A letter from Circleville. in the Hun day Herald, of last Sunday, relates a short anecdote, in which the names of both these Shawnee chiefs occur. It seems to have dropped out of the mem ory of the present generation of men, if indeed it was ever generally known, that the chief Blue Jacket was a white man. He was a Virginian by birth, one of a numerous family of brothers and sisters, many of whom settled in this State and Kentucky at an early day, and many descendants of whom still reside in this State. His name was Marmaduke Von Swer ingen. I can not now recall the name of his father, or the place of his nativ ity, except that it was in Western Vir ginia. He had brothers John, Vance, Thomas, Joseph, Stull and Charles and one sister, Sarah, and perhaps others. Marmaduke was captured by the Shaw nee Indians, when out with a younger brother on a hunting expedition, some time during the Revolutionary War. He was about seventeen years of age when taken, and was a stout healthy, well-developed, athletic youth, and be came a model of manly activity, strength and symmetery when of full age. He and a younger brother were together when captured, and he agreed to go with his captors and become natural ized among them, provided they would allow his brother to return home in safety. This proposal was agreed to by his captors, and carried out in good faith by both parties. When captured, Marmaduke (or Duke as he was familiarly called) was dressed in a blue linsey blouse or "hunting shirt" from which garment he took his Indian name of Blue Jacket During his boyhood he had formed a strong taste or predilection for the free savage life, as exemplified in the habits and customs of the wild American Indians, and frequently expressed bis determin ation that when he attained manhood he would take up his abode with some one of the Indian tribes. I am not able to fix the exact date of this transaction, except by approxima ting it by reference to. other events. It is traditionally understood that Mar maduke was taken by the Indians about three years before the marriage of his sister Sarah (wbe was the grandmother of the writer of this article), and she was married in the year 1781. So that it must have beea about in the year 17.8 when the event in question oc curred. Although we have no positive infor mation of the fact traditional or other wise, yet it is believed that the band or tribe with which Bine Jacket took up his residence, lived at that time on the Scioto River, somewhere between Chil icotheand Circleville. After arriving at his new and adopted home Marma duke or Blue Jacket entered with such alacrity and cheerfulness into all the habits, sports and labors of his as sociates, chat he soon became very pop ular among them. So much was this the case that before he was twenty-five years of age, he was chosen as a Chief of his tribe, and as such took part in all the councils and campaigns of bis tribe. He took a wife of the Shawnee, and reared several children, among them but one son. This son, who wss called Jim Blue Jacket was a rather dissipa ted, wild and reckless fellow, who was quite well known on the upper Miami River during and after the war of 1812. He left a family of several children, sons and daughters, who are now liv ing in Kansas, and with one of whom Charles Blue Jacket the writer of this has long kept up a correspondence. I first saw Charles at the time the Shaw nee Nation was removed from Ohio to Kansas, under the conduct of officers of the National Government in 1833. He is a well educated, highly inteUeetnal and intelligent gentleman; and in all respects features voice, contour and ssovement except as to his dars: color, is an exact sc simile of the Van Swer ingens.

(Jetting through with the usual topics of ministerial duty, all at once the speaker stretched up his gaunt frame to its full height and with a grim twist of his fact let off thto most unexiKcted sentence: "My brother, when you want to shoot white beam, you go where they are to shoot them. You don't waste your iowdr and ball to shoot white In-ars where, there are no white bears anywhere alxmt. So. if you want to preach ugainst slavery, you had better go where slavery is to preach against it than up hem where there is no slavery." The congregation gener ally took this sally as only the uncork ing of a small bottle of the Doctor' peculiar "toddy," but the few who were in the secret came home chuckling over what in the circumstance, might have looked like rather a serious Joke. Springjlild, Max:. Union. Albert aad Victoria. About ten years ago the Iondon press was almost unanimous in admitting the necessity of an addition to the income of the Prince of Wales, and It was gen erally expected that an application for some 20,000 a year more would be made to the House of Commons. The Spectator, An advanced Liberal Journal, indeed, went so f sir as to observe that " 100,000 a year was no longer a first class fortune,' and that there were many commoners as well us nobles far richer than the heir to the thrunu. However, the Government took no nrm in the matter, and it was presently ru mored that it refrained from so doing because there was reason to apprehend that such proposal would arouse un pleasant comments as to the expendi ture of her Majestyrand provoke sug gestions that, as she had in mo large a degree abandoned representative func tions, she should contrihuti; handsomely to the expenses of the Prince, on whom their maintenance fell. Since then the Prince's wmihm from hiB Duchy of Cornwall has risen some 20,000 a year, and now amounts to 172,000 a year, but he receives the same Pari iamen try allowance (10.000 a year, and 10,000 a year for the Princess) that be did'at his marriage. Meanwhile, he has had several children, and the cost of living since he married has increased at least 10 per cent; so sjbat his means are really less than ever. If the Prince had merely the expenses of a great nobleman, his income, though le?s than that of many Peers and some common ers, would amply surhce; but he has many expenses which tradition, eti quette, and royal sham compel him to incur, from which they enjoy an immu nity. He is expected to entertain pro fusely, to give splendid presents, and to subscribe to every conceivable object. But while the son Is often in straits where to turn for a thousand pounds, the mother Is literally rolling in riches. What Queen Victoria leaves behind her will never be known, because the wills of sovereigns are not proved; but those who bave considered the subject are of the opinion that she mu-.t since the Prince Consort's death, bave saved at the very least 100.000 a year. Not only has she lived so quietly that a large proportion of her 3W 000 a year public income must be s .ved. but it is to be remembered that Mr. Xield left her 300000, which, at 4 pur cent would give her 20.000 a year, and she receives 43 a year from her Duchy of Lan caster. The crown lands, given ap to the country, in lieu of a parliamentary annual grant have of late years been so ably and economically managed that their revenue covers the Royal allow ance, and these crown lands were as much the property of the sovereign as the Lands of the Duke of Devonshire, oruyoUwrlasKlhokler.arebis. If the country chose to make the most of these lands by cutting up, say. the New For ests, and selling it in lots, and adopting a sissJJsr plan with other ontlyfog pos sessions of the crown, it would make money out" of the royal family. The revenue of the Duchy of Cornwall has risen from .2200O. in I34 to72, 000, and in(rimnuallyHboutifA000, so that the next Prince of Wales will probably be independent of a Parlia mentary grant Queen Tktoria Is Kobabiy saving with the view of wsthcrfthsDuks dZSrJS2QZ oerwt ih Howw of Orteaiw. and nuJ Lo)s iTsillpp In coor th cbtst ef French KIrs --, Letter Item rrir-v pool IVlro U aa trwJ-faU.ri: v .
