' ' The country was then thinly settled
and the modes of travel were primitive.
Judge Black rode en horseback from Som
erset te Bedford, from Bedford te McCon McCen
nellsburg and thence te Chambersburg.
His arrival at each place was an event of
interest beyond the opening of court. He
rode a powerful black horse of great spirit
and as he went up and down the mountain
sides he took tierce delight in the onset of
his impetuous charger. It required the
main strength of two or three men te held
him while his rider mounted, and when
Judge Black was fairly en the saddle it is
well authenticated that often he could net
curb his speed te step at the top of the
mountain for dinner, and he never slack
ened his pace until he brought up at his
The above exciting little story is extract
ed from the portrait of Judge Black as it
appears in the ' White Heuse Gallery" of
the 2'imes, ever the signature of Mr. Hen
scl, of the Lancaster Intelligencer. It is
certainly romantic and full of fun. The
only exception that can be taken te it is
that it has net the shadow of a foundation
en which te stand, a fact that everybody
en that read then and new living will af
firm. It is very true that-the arrival of
Judge B. at each town in his district was
always an event of pleasure and interest,
but it was his line social and intellectual
qualities that caused the interest and net
the imaginary black horse.
The mode of travel in that section at the
time alluded te consisted of three daily
lines of elegant four-horse coaches, under
the management of the well-known Kce
side, and in one of these Judge B. was con
veyed from Bedford te Chambersburg and
back. Somerset was connected with Bed
ford by a tri-wcekly line of public coaches,
and " primitive" as was the mode it was
exceedingly pleasant. Frequently Judge.
Black traveled from Somerset te Bedford
in a private carriage, accompanied by such
distinguished lawyers as Ogle, Cox, Kim
mell and Forward.
We hope this fiction will net detract
from the otherwise eloquent and faithful
description of the eminent citizen as given
by our Lancaster friend, and which is
" authenticated" beyond dispute.
The ' Times " Corrected.
Valley Sentinel Correspondent.
The Philadelphia Times, referring te the
period when this gentleman was appointed
judge of the Somerset, Bedford and Frank
lin judicial district, speaks of the contest for
the place as between Judge Thompson
(then presiding), and Hen. Frederick
Smith, both residents of Chambersburg,
and that Governer Perter settled tfie dispute
by appointing Judge Black, who was little
known in the Cumberland valley. It is
very true that Judge Black was a stranger
te the masses in Bedford and Franklin, for
he was then quite young and of a rather
retiring disposition, and the ether aspi
rants had a great advantage ever him in
the magnitude of their petitions, but
Black was wel known te the governor
had influential friends who knew both well
and the governor had fully made up his
mind te appoint him long before the pub
lic contest commenced, and solely upon his
personal merits. Ne man within the
bounds of this commonwealth was a better
judge of men, or of the necessary qualifi
cations of a presiding judge than David
11. Perter, and when he determined te de
a thing he had the nerve and the integrity
of Andrew Jacksen te stand by his con
victions. Compromise or " settling a diffi
culty" did net enter into the question. The
opposition te Black was violent, especially
in Franklin, the issue was a square fight
between the three contestants, and Black
came off victorious, simply because the
governor knew well hew te perform a
great duty regardless of popular clamor.
Time has mere than justified his highest
If the national convention seen te as
semble at Cincinnati will make as judi
cious a selection for president of the
United States as Governer Perter did for
president judge in the Franklin district,
our country will have a chief magistrate
who will command the confidence and re
spect of the civilized world. . Who doubts
that the nomination of Jeremiah S. Black
would be the positive assurance of tri
umphant success? and success with such
a man would be something that every
American citizen would be proud of.
Anether Lebanon Tragedy.
A Confession That Gives an Account of Hew
a Thief Was Shet.
Martin Dumbach, of Lebanon, has made
the following statement te .'Squire Thom Them
as in regard te Dutch Fritter's death,
which took place last fall. Dumbach for
merly lived with Fritter, and says that
David Hunt-sicker told him after Fritter's
death, that Dutch Fritter had get one this
time ; that he had been shot for stealing,
and that Zehring shot him at his residence
en the Myerstown read, about a mile out
of Sherksville. It seems that Dutch Frit
ter, accompanied by Dutch Charley, went
with a horse and wagon en a thieving ex
pedition and stepped at Zehriug's te steal
some lard, and Zehring, being disturbed,
get up and, seeing the intruders, get his
gun and fired at them, sheeting Fritter in
the breast. Dutch Charley dragged him
te the wagon and placed him in and drove
off. When they get Fritter home they had
te drag him up the steps and next morn
ing he was dead.
It is known that Fritter died very sud
denly, but having lived such a recluse life
for a number of years past the publie paid
very little attention te his death. Among
LANCASTER, PA., SATURDAY,
bis neighbors he was always considered a
very ecccnteic person and associated veiy
little with these" who lived arennd him.
He lived en the Fredericksburg read, a
short distance this side of the Swatara
creek, and for a number of years had re
fused te sleep in his house, but took his
nightly rest in an old out-building a shav
ing pile being his bed. Dumbach said
that these who attended the funeral saw
only the face of the corpse, and that Dutch
Charley had laid him out and made all the
arrangements for the funeral, and as Frit
ter had' been complaining before his death,
there was no suspicion that he had paid the
penalty for his midnight marauding.

Something About " Oulda."
Why She Broke an Engagement With a
Florentine Marquis Her Heipe en the
Outskirts of Florence.
A Florentine marquis of youth and
property once wooed and almost wen the
celebrated Ouida, but she happily discov
ered in time her suitor's fascination for the
wife of another, broke off the engagement,
and, by doing se, probably saved her un
sullied name from being involved in a sad
scandal. This narrow escape gave Ouida
two characters before unknown te her, at
least practically. She has impaled both
male and female offenders in one of her
novels in se unmistaken a manner as te
necessitate them te abstain from the gay
world they love se weli, and te purge their
offences by living a secluded life in the
suburbs of the Tuscan capital. Ouida's
abode is also iu the outskirts of Florence.
Her villa stands upon a green eminence,
surrounded by corn fields and meadows,
vineyards, hills and streams, some three
miles from the city. The interior of her
residence is gaily adorned with flowers
and curiosities from all parts of the civi
lized world, as well as by painting, many
of which are from her own brush. But as
an artist Ouida will never be known,
although she is proud of her productions.
She shines far better with her pen than
with her palette. She works out doers
in summer, indoors in winter. A
greyhound, her favorite degt is always
her companion. Her dogs and her horses
appear te be the only living things
with whom i net at variance
iu some way or another. She writes rap
pidly, and never erases or adds a word
until her copy is in type. She pursues her
independent course of life after her own
ideas of pleasure and comfort, regardless
of any one, and, in many ways, in open
defiance of the laws of propriety and of the
established rules of social life, at least of
these recognized by less- gifted women.
Beside her dumb pets, of which she se
dearly loves te plead the cause with her
pen, her only attendants are an old woman
of all-work and a man te whose care, under
her own supervision, she intrust .her
horses. Ouida is eccentric, perhaps un
duly severe in her criticisms of " society,"
but the mere serious charges which have
been laid at her deer cannot be supported
The attempts made te compare her ear
lier life with that of "Geerge Sand" are
unpardonable. Like these of "Geerge
Sand," her productions surprise many and
shock net a few, but this fact is due te her
being an Englishwoman. Were she
French the case would be different. She
has declared' war against what is bad in
society, and she bravely keeps up the
fight. Foreign Letter,
A Valuable Boek.
The state library of New Yerk has
lately become the possessor of a book for
which it paid $1,600, the result of a sharp
competition. It is, however, a book of
which the state of New Yerk, and espec
ially the state library, ought te be the
owner. Ihe library is primarily designed
for the use of the Legislature and of the
state authorities, and this book of which
the full title is, "The Laws and Acts of
the General Assembly of Their Majesties
province of New Yerk, As they were En
acted in diverse Session, the first of which
began April the 9th, Anneg : Domini 1691.
At New Yerk, Printed and Sold by Wil
liam Bradford, Printer te Their Majesties,
King William and Mary ; 1694 "is net
only the earliest book printed in the state,
much of it in 1693, but it contains copies
of laws of New Yerk of which the state
has no copies in print or mauuscript. Five
copies of the book only are known. There
is one in the New Yerk society library,
one in the possession of Mr. A. J. Vander
peel, an imperfect copy both in the sec
retary of state's office and in the Lenex
library, and this complete one iu the state
As an old book merely the library would
net have bought it, but as the only acces
sible existing copy of early laws of New
Yerk, the trustees of the library could net
permit it te be sold te any one out of the
state, nor te any ether buyer iu New Yerk
than the state itself. Connecticut had ap
propriated 65,000 te buy copies of the laws
of different states at this espicial Brinley
sale, and at previous sales had already paid
several hundred dollars for a volume of its
own laws. The Lenex library, with its
imperfect copy, fixed its capacious eye and
purse upon this perfect copy, this unique,
this phoenix. There could be no question.
The bidding began. It went high, higher.
Dr. Helmes, the intrepid state librarian,
unfurled the flag "Excelsior" (with "the
true arms" of the state emblazoned), and
New Yerk remained master of the field.
It is a plain, homely sheep-skin folio of
three hundred pages, and they contain sug
gestive laws. Every Christrian who shall
kill a grown wolf en Leng or Staten islands
is te receive thirty shillings. The evidence
of a slave is te be of no account. If mere
than three negrees meet together they are
te have fifty lashes en the bare back ; and
if any slave is found traveling forty miles
beyond the city of Albany without a mas
ter, he is te be put te death. But there is
no prevision that he is te be accused of
putting himself te death. The price of
this book is large, but it is well spent.
