SO.ME colored gentlemen were playing
poker down in a Georgia village a few
days ago , and the betting was livelier
than the public has been generally wont
to consider the habit of the colored cle
ment. A lot of hands had just been
paid off for the month and they were
pretty flush. The dealer wrung in a cold
deck , and the pot rose to the comforta
ble dimensions of $50.- The dealer wa
about to rake it in triumphantly on f
royal flush , when the gentleman wh
had shown down four nines in one hand
added another hand containing a bowic
knife. The royal flush was instantly re
inforced with a pistol , while the gen
tleman with four nines and the knifi
was backed by all the other players
The dealer was a good shot , and he laid
out all five of the other players so effect
ually that they were colder than the
deck of which they were the indirec
victims. The skillful manipulator o
cards and pistol escaped with the pot
but is pursued by the entire neighbor
hood with the pleasing prospect of r
lynching when caught. This little in
cident should have a tendency to dis
courage the game of draw. Topics.
THE petit jury has long since become
a reproach and a disgrace to this enlight
ened country and age. If there is any
thing in all creation about which even
the Almighty himself is uncertain it is _
what will be the verdict of a petit jury.
And as the motives ( ? ) which moved
the jurors to acquit Short of the at
tempted assassination of Phelan , become
public , the system as it now applies will
be held in contempt more lofty than
ever. As illustrative of the line of ar
gument which seems to have the strong
est hold on the average juror in deter
mining the innocence or guilt of an ac
cused fellow creature , let us mention a
Pew of these "motives" given by jurors
in the Short-Phelan case. One juror
liad a sick wife , another a sick child ,
while another peradventure felt a little
indisposed himself , and the most of them
objected to remaining in the jury room
over night , and thus highly appreciating
the responsibilities of their office , they
patched up an outrageous verdict so
that they could get home. The aver
age Hottentot's conception of justice
would hold a fellow man's life dearer
than such "intelligent'7 American jurors.
THE people who make fool speeches
and those who write fool letters are
coming to grief at a great rate. James
Blackburn , a brother of the Senator
from Kentucky , has had his appoint
ment as Internal Revenue Collector
"or the Lexington district revoked in
consequence of the publication of a let
ter written to his wife at the beginning
of the war , in which he declares he
wants to see Union blood deep enough
for his horse to swim in. The late de
velopments in the letter writing line do
much to confirm the wisdom of the late
Jim Fisk's advice to one of his friends ,
never to write , but to send if he wanted
to give any instructions. Letters have
a way of turning up at most importune
moments and undoing the ambitions of
JUDGE STEWAIIT , of Maryland , in
iis recent charge to the inquest of grand
urors on the subject of gambling , said :
"The vice seems to be one inherent in
our nature , and it will probably contin
ue until the people are educated up to
the point that raffles at fairs will be
considered an evil to be frowned upon ,
ind chances in holiday presents as a
thing to be avoided. The grosser forms
of this vice are liable to punishment ,
ind when the business of gaming is car
ried on in violation of law the duty to
society requires that the offence should
not be lightly passed over , but should
> e prosecuted. " This is said to be the
first instance in Baltimore in which the
rand jury has been charged upon this
subject , which more particularly affects
the raffles at church fairs.
IT'S amusing for an editor , when so-
iciting to hear a man say , : 'It doesn't
) ay to advertise. " Why does this man
put out a sign ? That's advertising.
Why docs he obstruct the pavement in
front of his store with samples of the
joods he sells ? That's advertising , too.
Why does he daub the head of a mack
erel barrel or dry goods box with the
ivords , "AlL oUr gOods chEep , " and
stick it up in a keg of beans or a pile of
jalico in his store V" Exchange.
