The prisoners in the jail at St. Joseph de La Beauce, half way between Montreal and Quebo<;, revolted and shot down Jailer God- bont and Sergeant Harpe of the provincial police; overpowered, bound and seriously maltreated three keepers, and then five of the convicts made good tlieir escape. The jail contained about twenty-five criniiuals undergoing short terms of imprisonment, be­ sides several priisoners awaiting trial. Among them were the brothers Napoleon and Victor Giroux, arrested on suspicion of being the desperadoes who broke into the presbytery of St. Frederic parish and robbed Father Martin of a large sum of money; the broth­ ers Jacques and Joseph Paulin, accused of arson, and Antoine Malaise, accused of as- Baulting a young girl.

DRIVING OUT THE MORMONS. Tar and Feathers and a Whipping Admintstcred to Five o f Them. Information comes from Dale county, Ala­ bama, that five Mormon missionaries have been severely whipped .and driven from the county. They have been holding meetings among the ignoraut classes and had formed a colony to go to Utah. The last issue of the Ozark “ Star” advised the people to tar and feather the Mormons and drive them away. Recently about forty of the so-called best citizens' of the northern part of the county, without the slightest attempt at disguise, surrounded the house of “Gid” Irons, a recent convert, who was entertain­ ing the five missionaries. The missionaries were brought out, stripped to the waist, and tied in a row. Then each of the regulators, with along switoll, struck each prisoner i blow. Bj\^ the time the last blow was givei two of the men had fainted and the others were wet with blood. After the whipping the legs of the Mormons were coated with tar and feathers, and they were warned to leave in­ stantly on pain of death. Irons was told that if the Mormons were found in hi.s house again he, too, would be whipped. The names of the Mormons are Asa F.Hixson,.I.H. Hngadom, M. F. Miller, John Pearce, and Ancel Morri­ son. They have gone to Henry county. Their followers in Dale county talk of aveng- inir the whippinjr. Wneckage and. Wrecked Vessels.

Capt, Randolph of the tug Hercules reports that twenty- seven miles southeast by south from Cape Henlopen. passed a quarter deck of a vessel of about 200 tons, ^here was a single quar­ ter bitt Avith cavil through it, and the for­ ward part of the steering Avheel stand was in its place. The deck had been painted white, and the top of the bitt was covered with yel­ low metal that had not been polished. No other Avreckage in the A’icinity. NORTHVILLE, N . T .
