Example : Certificate Ne. 1, age 37, May 9, 1876,
for $5,000 is still in force ; cost, tltt.GO $7.23 per
thousand per year. Fer IJ04.S3 paid te the as
sociation by members new deceased, the asseci
atien have actually paid te their heirs $11,073.,

Xew Yerk Independent, Bcp.
One of the most notorious of these coi cei coi
ruptienists is Mr. William II. Kemblp, a
bank president and president of a railroad
company. He was a sort of Tweed in the
Quaker city. When, before the legisla
tive committee, he was questioned in le
gard te the bribery clause in the constitu
tion, and replied : " I knew that the con
stitution has a let of stuff in it that none of
you live up te,and I am no better than ether
people," it was high time that the bribing
villain and his associates in crime were
brought te justice. He had practically as
sumed that he was above law ; and when,
by the advice of his counsel, he plead
guilty, and thus acknowledged befeie the
ceuit what under oath he had denied be be
eoie the legislative committee, he did net
expect any punishment ether than merely
nominal, consisting in a small fine, which
he could easily pay fiem his ample ex
chequer. We aie seny te add that the court of
pardons, with unseemly haste, held a spe
cial session within four days after the sen
tence, aud, after brief deliberation, decided
te recommend the remission of the sen
tence se far as imprisonment is concerned.
The main ground of the recommendation is
that the law of 1874 provides for simple im
prisonment and says nothing about confine
ment in the penitentiary. If Judge Pearson
erred in the sentence, as we de net think
he did, the proper remedy was te apply for
a writ of habeas corpus te the supreme
court ; and hence theie was no necessity
for any action en the part of the court of
pardons, certainly net until this remedy
had been tried. It leeks as if it weie a
foregone conclusion with this court and
with Gov. Heyt that these convict prison
ers should be suffered te escape the chief
part of the penalty. At any rate, both are
disgraced, and the state of Pennsylvania is
Public justice has been cheated and the
moral sentiments off all right-thinking
men outraged. The crime at whicli the
penalty was aimed strikes a deadly blew at
the very foundations of social order and
public safety. These men ought, te have
atoned for the crime by suffering the sen
tence awarded by Judge Pearson. We re
cord our earnest pretest against such a
wanton abuse of the patterning power.
The indecent haste with which the whole
thing was done mere than suggests a vir

WHO STRUCK BILLT PATTERSOX?
The Identity of the Assailed Party Fully
William Patterson was s very wealthy
tradesman or merchant of Baltimore, in
the state of Mayland. In the early days
of Franklin county, Ga., he bought up a
great many tracts of land in the county,
and spent a geed portion of his time in
looking after his interests there. He was
said te be as strong as a bear and brave as
a lien, but like all brave men he was a lever
of peace, and, indeed, a geed pious man.
Nevertheless, his wrath could be excited te
a fish tin r pitch. On one occasion he attend
ed a public gathering in the lower part of
r rankliu county, at some district court
ground. During the day two opposing
bullies and their friends raised a row. and
a ceneral tight was the consequence. At
the beginning of the affray, aud before the
fighting began, Billy Patterson ran into
the crowd te persuade thorn net te fight,
but te make peace and be friends. But his
efforts for peace were unavailing, and while
making them some of the crowd in
the general melee struck Billy Pat
terson a severe blew from behind. Billy
at once became fighting mad. and cried
out at the top of his voice, " Who struck
Billy Patterson? " Xe one could or would
tell him who was the guilty party. He
then proposed te give any man $100 who
would tell hiin "who struck Billy
Patterson." Frem $100 he arose te
$1,000, but net $1,000 would induce
any man te tell him "who struck
Billy Patterson." And years afterward,
in his will, lie related the above facts, aud
bequeathed $1,000 te be paid by his execu execu
eors te the man who would tell " who
struck Billy Patteisen." His will is re
corded in the ordinary's office at Carues
ville, Franklin county, Georgia, and any
ene curious about the matter can. there
find it and verify the pieceding statement.
Chinese In Xew Yerk.
The New Yerk correspondent of the
Bullale Courier furnishes this infor
mation : "The Chines" in New Yerk,
where they become mere, and mere
numerous very fast, are very like
ourselves in ene respect they caie
a great deal moie about money than
about religion. One of the charges
against the Chinese, by the way that
they don't marry is net quite true. Seme
of them de marry when they can get
white wives. A Chinaman and a white
girl went te the mayor's office the
ether day and were made man and
wife. A short time before another China
man and a white woman, who appeared
as his wife, were in the police court te
settle a row about the name of
their baby. The taste of the white
girls who take washce-washee hus
bands can hardly be commended, but the
washce-washeemen don't cat e much about
the taste, I suppose, se long as they get
wives. There is already some talk about
asking the Legislature te forbid this kind
of miscegenation, but what it may amount
te I cannot say. As yet there is no sign of
a special demand for Chinese servants.
Probablynet mere than fifty of tl e 2..100
Chinese in New Yerk are employed in this
way. I understand that some who have
tried Chinamen have been glad te get rid
of them after a few weeks. There is no
particular complaint, but a sort of general
A lJoemlct in China Mugs.
The Pittsburgh Pottery and Glnswntre
