Sketch of (he I.ifc of Hon. Alexander
11. Stephen**.
Alexander Hamilton Stephens was born at
Taliaferro, Georgia. At the ape of fourteen he
! was left an orphan. lie graduated at Franklin
j college in 1832 and at. once began the study of
• law and was admitted to practice three years
j later. In 1536 he was elected to the lower house
|of tlie state legislature in which body he served
five years. In 1*42 he was elected to the state
senate and the following year was returned to
congress as a whig, with which party he was
: identified from the first of ids public life. In j
j 1852 when Gen. W infield Scott was nominated |
for the presidency by the whigs Mr. Stephens
left the party and supported the democratic
nominee. When the recesjlou movement began
to develope in ISSO Mr. Stephens look strong
grounds in favor of remaining in the Union,
and spoke eloquently in that interest. When
his state decided to secede, however he yielded
and was elected provisional vice president of
the confederacy, lie visited Virginia after that
state had seceded and tlrrough his agency she
was induced to join ihc confederacy. When
the permanent confederate government was
formed Mr. Stephens was elected vice president
by the vote of the people, and he continued in
that capacity until the final surrender. At ihe
close of the war he was arrested and confined
in Fort Warren from April until October, 18Gf,
when he was released and returned to Georgia.
In December 18d5, he was elected senator in
congress, but was not admitted. About April,
1874, he was elected to the house of represent
atives and cont in ued to ser -e until a few years
ago, when he was elected governor. During the
period between the close of the war and his io
turn to congress lie wrote a history of the war,
in two volumes, entitled "A Constitutional His
tory of tno War between the states." Mr.
Stephens made his will seme time ago. He
leaves SIO,OOO in money to the children of his
late brother, Judge Stephens, and the rest of I ! s
estate, with the exception of a few minor be
quests, to his nephew,-John A. Stephens. What
h:sestate will foot up depends largely upon tlio
sale of the "New History of the United States."
He made about .$30,000 on "The War between
the States," and his new book is selling well.
Above his bequests his estate will probably pay
The legislature has passed a bill
and Gov. Pattison has signed it, re

Alleged Effect of tho Tariff Bill.
PITTSBURG, March 10.— Iron mast
ters interviewed on the tariff question
are unanimous in their declarations that
under the now law a reduction of tie
wages of all classes will lo a necessity.
If a reduction is persisted in it will very
probably result in a general strike as
a 1 irge number of employees seen to-day
assert that any attempt to reduce
wages will he stubbornly resisted.

The Dukes Nutt Jury.
UXIOXTOWX, Pa., March 11.—The
jury in t!e Dakes-Xutt murder case
was secured yesterday. The dilliculty
encountered was not so great as was
anticipated. A panel of sixty jurors
was exhausted. When the jury had
been sworn Judge Wilson put them in
charge of officers and adjourned the
ease until Monday morning, when the
taking of testimony will commence.
The accused in a firm voice pleaded not
guilty, ami occupied his time in taking
notes as the trial progressed. lie is

Senator Beck,of Kentucky,who came
a poor boy to this country from bcot
land,says the Courier-Journal, worked
on the saino farm in Livingston county 1
this State, that Secretary Teller work
ed upon. When they met in the Senate
Mr. Beck said : "Well, Ilenry, when
we used to drive old Brown's oxen we
never expected to meet in the United
States Senate." "No, Jim," said Mr.
Teller, "we didn't know there was such
a place-"
The California Assembly has passed a
most sensible bill to meet the plea of in
sanity in cases of murder. It would
seem to tit the case exactly. The in
dicted man who pleads it is to be tirst
examined as to bis sanity without re
gard to the crime charged. If decreed
to be sane, be is tried for murder, and
his false plea is to be treated as an ag
gravation of the offense. If to
be insane he goes to an insane asylum
at once for lite, so that lie shall never
harm anybody else. If, however, any
evidence turns up afterwards to prove
that the decision was wrong, then lie is
to be taken and tried of murder on the
original charge.
Three ladies in Beech Creek, Clinton
county, are subjects of religious fanat
icism. They have slmt themselves up
in the house of one of the three, a Mrs.
Grater, where they have been waiting
for the fulltillment of the prophecy re
corded in the fourth chapter of Malachi.
Two of them are single ladies and
very intelligent ; one is a Presbyterian
and the other a Methodist. It was re
vpaled to them a few months ago that
they should not attend religious exer
cises at church any moroand since then
they have conlined themselves to each
other's company, and .now for weeks
they have been in that little room pray
ing and watching and listening for Ga
briel to blow his horn. The entreaties
of parents or the desire of sick friends
to see them, will not induce the young
ladies to go home.
