that recently occurred in Central city.
A man named A. Rosebrook, killed his
two children, and came near killing his
wife by administering chloroform. He
also cut the children in the groins, in
tending to sever the femoral artery,

form. Unfortunately it did not kill him.
Mrs. Rosebrook was living at last ac

was a failure, and that. with the heresy
that teaches a man to believe himself
his own God, led him to this diabolism.

George Alfred Townsend gives the
follewing naughty sketch of life at New.
Here is a bathing scene that struck me
yesterday : A lady dressed all in azure,
even to her boots, which were of the
same ethereal hue; likewise her para
sol, her little flat fanchon of a hat, and
the only relief to this rare unilormity
was the golden chignon of her hair that
looked as it it might be the reservoir of
all this azure die. She had that pretty
walk and stylish manner of the New
York belle, and coming down the sand
trippingly she looked only more real
than those French lithographs we see,
of superbly shaped dead-ripe ladies,
peach tinted; and with the clean cut feet
of sea birds. This creature disappeared.
I waited with guilty anxiety for her re
appearance from the little sentry box of
a bathing house. Merciful Pan l what
is this ?-a low set, bald headed, bare
footed apparation, rigged out in blood
red smock and breeches, with green
veins around the arm pits and down the
breast, and a green belt like the sea
weed bisecting her like an insect debout.
The nightmare of the auto-de-fe went
straight down the beach into the sea, as
if to meet the anthropophagi, and I stole
to the bathing box down by the rear
side and looked in. There hang a little
skirt and jacket of azure; little azure
boots with azure strings were set down
coquettishly on the sand; the little hat
like a leaf was dangling from a nail ;
and a ball of golden hair as big as a
pumpkin swung freely from a beam. I
could account for the diminished height
of my lady now. She had been decapi
tated. Directly, all clasped by her wet
masquerading garb, so that the round
ness of youth was half come back, she
re-entered the box. Of course I had
quitted it. In five minutes an azure
sylph, fit for Thetis herself, came daintily
out upon the sand, golden ball and all.

Who killed Maximilian ? Let the
American government, Napolean, and
the Pope reflect upon that question be
fore giving it an answer.
There was no hope for the Emperor
of Mexico after he had fallen into the
hands of J nares. The interposition of
the American government was a mere
formality, and Juares treated it as such.
If the American government had been
in earnest, the American government
would have said' "Maximilian shall not
be slain !" The interposition was only
that of a fond old woman, when seeing
a cruel boy torturing a fly, she might
gently ask him not to torture the fly.
Juares knew what such interposition
was worth. The cowardly wretch,worse
than some beast of prey, must needs
keep the lifeless remains of his enemy
in sight, to glut his revenge with the
spectacle of the dead body, and the
wounds which he has made. When it
suits the purpose of the American gov
ernment the hero of the moment will be
hanged upon a tree; but whatever ob
jects may be cherished in the American
mind, we do not think the result will be
so atisfactory to their authors as they
think. By the very force of annexation

manner, our sorrow for the sudden and
untimely death of one of her noblest
seas, General Thomas Francis Meagher,
WHuzR As. His soj urn and career in
this country has been such as to endear
his memory to all; it is right and proper
that we express our sympathy with the
bereaved friends for the lose they have
sustained and with our follow citizens,
both native and adopted. in the depar

Re.olsed, That the service he render
ed to his adopted country in the hour of
need by placing himself in the face of
the enemy at the head of his own be

of the people of this country.
Resolved, That the fortitude which he
showed in exile from his native land
and the devoted heroism with which he
sustained those principles of Liberty
and Justice, cherished by every true
Irish heart, have earned the love ot man
kind, and his name and deeds will over
appear bright in the pages of the world's
Resolved, That his fortitude is only

the will of the Divine Ruler, we feel that
it is our duty to share the sorrows of the
family and relations of the deceased and
extend to them in their hour of grief
our heart felt sympathy, praying con
stantly that the treacherous waters of
the Missouri that separate the Jewel
from the Casket may give up his re
mains, worth nothing now only as an
object on which to bestow the tender
cares of domestic affection.

THE STRONGEST MAN IN THE WORLD
-A native of Australia, Mr. J. E. Evans
recently gave an exhibition of remarka
ble strength at the Sea Hotel, in Ches
terfield, England, to establish his claims
as the strongest man in the world. He
held a fifty-six pound weight in various
positions at arm's length, and increased
the number until he raised tour fifty-six
pound weightsabove his head, holding
them at arm's length, and at the same
time standing upon tour glass tumblers.
He also held the weights on the top
of the glass, and allowed a glass of water
to be placed on the top of the weights.
He laid flat on the floor and let a fifty
six pound weight fall a distance of about
a yard on his bare chest, and the weight
rebounded as though it had came in con
tact with a piece of India rubber. A
piece of stone, four inches thick, was
placed upon his chest, and Mr. Hinch,
blacksmith, smashed it into fragments
with two blows. Mr. Hinch and Mr.
Turner then cut a piece of two-inch iron
in two across his chest with the ham
mer and chisel, The feats concluded by
Prof. Hercules lying flat upon the floor,
and allowing Mr. Hinch to strike him,
with all his strength, with a sixteen
pound sledge hammer. The blow was
met by the Professor, and the hammer
rebounded without leaving a scratch
upon his body.
IN his novel of "Norwood" Henry
Ward Beecher discourses as follows con
cerning the future life of horses:
"What do you think becomes of
horses, Hiram, when they die?" said
" Wal, Miss Rose, it's my opinion that
there's use for horses hereafter, and that
you'll find there's a horse heaven.
There's scriptures for that, too."
" Ah ! " said Rose, a little surprised at
these confident assertions. " What scrip
ture do you mean ? "
"Why, in the Book of Revelations!
Don't it give an account of a white
horse, and a red horse, and black horses,
and gray horses ? I've allers s'posed that
when it said Death rode on a pale horse,
it must have been gray, 'cause it had
mentioned white ones already. In the
ninth chapter, too, it says there was an
army of two hundred thousand horse
men. Now, I should like to know where
they got so many horses in heaven it
none of 'em that die off here go there "l
It's my opinion that a good horse's a
darned sight likelier to go to heaven
than a bad man ! "
TEn MoRMoNs REFUSED A MA&ONIC
CHARTER.-At the late session of the
Grand Lodge of F. and A. Masons for
Nevada, the matter of the petition of
Mount Moriah Lodge of Masons of Great
Balt Lake City, Utah, for a charter, came
before the Lodge for action. The whole
affair was thoroughly investigated, a
large amount of interesting correspon
dence read, substantial facts made appar
ent, and after a patient hearing of the
merits of the case, the craft refused to
grant a charter that in any manner
should recognise the peculiar institu
tions of the Saints. We are glad to
know that the Masons do not wish to
recognise as brethren men who have
from fve to Afty wives; glad to know
that they will not admit Mormons and
thus endorse polygamy.- Territorial E
