Thursday morning tho aiildects of this sketch
passed through this city on their way from Putnam
county, Indiana, to their home In Lincoln county,
Kentucky, and from a gentleman who talked with
them, we have obtained the following romantic atory:
In 1941 John Elliot left hla horn and hla wife, who
had born him eleven children, In Putnam county,
this Slate, suddenly and In passion at aome slight
misunderstanding that had occurred between them.
He gave his family no Intimation of hla departure
previous to leaving, and they never heard of him
tgsln until after th lanse of twenty-sia years.
The wife believed her husband dead, and after two
years' waiting she gave him up aa lost to her forever,
and married a respectable citizen of the county,
named Ballon, and has resided happily enough wills
htm near Cloverdale ever since, until laat week. It
waa then that the first tidings ot supposed deceased
butbaud were received by her.
It waa In thla wise lhat these tidings reached her.
A letter came to her through the hand of a person
who was a stranger. This letter set furth lhat U she
would visit a little town several miles distant from
Clorerdale she would meet an old and very dear
friend, and urged her not to omit making the visit
at a crrlaln time. The letter Impressed her strange.
ly, snd she concluded to visit the towu named, at the
ocelgnalcd time, and did ao.
What was her surprise on entering the bouse
where the meeting waa appointed, to meet her first
husband. Twcutr-six years had passed, and time
had left Ita Impress upon the man, yet she recognized
him at once, and throw herself Into hla arms; fur
nolle Ithslandlng she waa now alxty-elght yean of
ige, the light of her Orat cholco warmed tho loving
pulses of her heart, and broke open the fountain
of her affections that bad been ao long acaled up
She threw her anna about hla neck, klsacd his
wrinkled check, aud wept like a glil, the tears of
The husband'a heart was also melted Into tender
ness, and he embraced his aged but long deserted
wife, with all the fervor ofa young and ardent lover,
Tho pist waa talked over, tho sudden disappearance,
long absence, and continued silence ol the husband
eapislned, and then and Ihcre it waa agreed lhat they
would spend the remnant or their lives together.
The woman returned to her home In Cloverdale.
She explained to her second husband all that had
happened, and told him that she Mt It her duly to
go with the first husband, from whom she had been
ao long separated. The second husband, Ballou, wai
loth to content, but the woman wai unchangeable In
her determination, and he waa compelled to ac-
iuleaeo. Their worldly effects were divided, and on
londay Inst ths old ladr left Cloverdalu to telolu her
husbtnd In the little village where the meeting took
rlace, and Thursday they pasted through this city on
lirlr wty lo Kentucky,

Stat I am happy to mile known to the pnbllo
that letters which I hare Just rerr ved from Dr.

me that he had received, through an Arab messen

Marungu and Cazem be, placet which lie to the S. and
S. S. W. of Lake Tsn;sn)lka.
As lhee brier tellers were written In the months
of Orloticr and December of 107, we have now oh
lalned Intelligence which satisfactorily accounts for
the delays thst hsve occurred since l.e winte to my
self and others from a mora southern latitude In lh
month of February, 1K17.
II appears thsl Livingstone has heenllvlng during
three months with friendly Arabs and waiting for
the close or a native war before proceeding on his
wny In VJiJI. and he told the Arab messenger thst
alter exploring I.sao Tanganyika he Intended In re
turn to Zanzibar, This Is the first nnnowneement
from himself that he Inlrndod lo quit Africa by II at

ago lo thellnval Geographical Society, as slated In
lh 71wnf Oct. 1.
Tho letters of Dr Kirk sre eery comforting, Inas
much as they make rlcsrty known to us that provis
ions, medietnes, letters, and Inrnrmatlon had been
sent In Inert Llitngslone at I J.jl. and that our great
traveller wt aware or their being so sent Dr. Kirk
also Informs me thst whrn Livingstone went on thla
expedition (and ha bss not reerlved any
numcan news since) hs wns unacquainted
with the discovery of IlaVrr and the south
ern eilrnslon of Ijke Albert Nysnza to
wards the Tinman tiles; but as themepof Hiker
has also been transmitted to I'jIIJI, Livingstone will
at once ec that It wns more than ever tncumbi nt on
him lo try to tnlve tho great problem of Ihe Nllothi
watershed of Africa, by determining whether these
great laket aro united or separated by lila li lands,
and, ii aeraiatnl, by as rrtalnlng Into w'at rncr

With the authentic dsl row befoiu us we may
well believe that tl o news which cam by telegram

An excursion parly' over the eastern division of
Ihe Pacific Ilallroad, which traverses Kansas to Fort
llayaand beyond, has Just relume I. Ths psrty wss
composed of general ticket agents or v irous rall
losd companies In th United States. They were
jolly set urrellosil, Their main object ippctra to
havo been to get a shot at the buffalo. At Foil
llsys they borrowed carbines and breech-lnndlng
rifles, but most of thcin were so Ignorant
of the use of flreerms thst Ihey bed to he Instructed
how to load. Of course there wss Imminent dsnger
that such a patty ol hunters woulj kill mors or their
own company than of the bnfltluea. They were whit
we would rail a Pickwickian let of hiinten, who
handled their firearms is If they were no mure dan
gerous than a walking stick. Thirty miles west of
Fort Hayi they unexpectedly ctme upon a herd of
buflalort, and a correspondent thus describes He lu
dicrous and exciting scene which thereupon ensued:
When about thirty miles west of Hays, Iho cry
"Buffaloes I buffaloes I" was beard, and amid a
general rttli for pisiform and windows, and the ex
clamations that arose from every side, great numbers
of huge, hairy monsters wero seen galloping with
unwieldy movements from Ihe lino of the Hack on
either side, As the trsln rolled hy they strung out
here and theie, many or them within fifty yards ins
tance. We had surprised llietn. Great was the
eiritemcnt on Ihe train. Madly Impatient,
yelling and shouting, tho men rushed for the
plstlorm an I bagLago car, got In one another's way,
dlscharcea their weapons iicre and there st random.
Not a few narrowly csraped being victims to Impru
dent snd headlong carelessness. The tide entrance!
In Ihe baggage car were bloekrd up, and within those
unable to obtain a shot wrre frantically stamping and
lu.'glng al tlio.s In li out ol them. Men who had nee rr
be. ore held a rifle In their lisnds, discharged their
arms not thlnklngof taklugalm. Some who had for
gotten the Instructions about loading we re I Idlculoua
objects of dcialr, aa tl.er atood bowlldered, after
having vainly endeavored lo thrust In the'r cir
Irldgeie al Ihu muisle. Leland, with unusual activ
ity, clsmbered lo the roof or one or Ihe cars,
and thence blazed harmlessly away wllh a pocket
revolver at the fleeing herd, Several crowded for
ward Into the lender, and from there kept up a
steady Ore. Morsn was seen wrangdnz about the
fmsaession ofa biilTalo riho, unliarintd. was mak
ng good time over the plain -with his Honor,
Judge hwecur, aud offering to bet four dol
lars snd a half that It was hit bullet, and not
that of the Judge, which had brought the game
down. Meanwhile many a gigantic monster was
teen to falter, while thuso jet untouched galloped
rapidly away. Th raiding of bulleta was heard
from tbe windows, snd the Isdict' rcreama were
drowned In th yelling and ahnoling of th men, The
train viae soon slacked up, and many not waiting for
It lo slop, leaped out aud gave chase. So deceptive
waa the distance that Iho pursued did nut seeoi lo
gain, and It was not until many a one had
given out from abeer exhaustion lhat it wsa
seen to attempt to ovcrlske was fruitless.
Still th firing went on, and bulleta flew In every di
rection Some few took effect, the most railed,
The parly were soon scattered over the plain, heed
less ot tbe admonition they had received lo beware
of Indians, and Intent only upon the sport. It vas
ludicrous to witness the excitement, and lot behold
er and hnntcr ahared alike the common fee-ling. The
burly figures of Atmorc and Dsy were beheld run
ning oluibly for awhile after the lugltlve animals,
and then gradually lultcrlng, until, after having
vainly chased fur a mile or mure, yielding to fallgu
and excess of avordupols, and sinking, utterly
fagged, upon the earpel like plain, gazing
mournfully upon the rapidly dltspciring
herd. Lighter weight kept up a lunxcr
chase, and only ceased pursull when far uway uud
out of sight In depressions of the seemingly level
plain. To the northward waa seen a rust collection
ut animals, covering several miles of ground, feed
ing peacctully, heedless or the firing whose souud
did not reach thern, 1 uward this herd several of the
wounded animals made their way. They were pur
sued by others ol Ihe party, and one of them fell
about a mile from thu tialn, having received a well
tent ball. Within a few moments tho body was sur
rounded by a score of excited men, who with axe
and knlle soon had th quarters, tongue, skin, tall,
and horns separated. With these they returned, uud
then let nut lor fresh victories.
The train meanwhile moved off with a portion of
the parly in search of fresh herds further on, From
the summit ofoneofthe embankments thrown up
by the side of the track the sight wss a grand one.
to clear wss the atmosphere, snd so deceptive, the
rr..inire irom tliO absence of tee or break In the
turficc with which to mentuie the distance, that the
Immense herd feeding to the northward on tire slopes
orthebluffi teemed tcarcely a mile off, though lour
times thst distance awty. Several of the parly were
anxious to get a shot ut this diove, but, being unablo
to persuade those who had already had enough
of chasing buffaloes ou foot to accompany them,
they wcic dissuaded when drily told by Curry that If
they wished to get back they should hsve started
early In the morning. To the south and east the
hunters were strewn, singly aud In twos and threes,
endeavoring to steal a march on the animals, who
wers divided into droves of from three to a dozen
each, and who bad ceased fleeing when at a safe die
tance. The sport was pursued with varying auc
ceaa. In aome cases two or three ahota sufficed to
bring down a monster of an animal. But tbe
buffalo never gites up nntll he Is dead,
and many, after having run ths gauntlet of
a dozen repeating rilies, galloped milca over the
plain, and lull llleless too far distant for the tlayer to
secure his trophy. Tho legs of some were broken
with bullets, sud lit they ran off at great speed,
sticking tnelr mutilated Hump Into Ibe toll at every
step. 'Ihe game was pursued with the utmost reck,
lessucss and disregard of danger, and when the day's
adventures were afterward coaaldered, all felt thank
ful that no accident hal occcurrcd. 'At the afternoon

The reproduction of so popular a work as " La
Belle llc'k'ne" attracted, as might be expeeted, a very
large audience at Pike's Opera House. So much
honest Indignation hal already been etpended upon
the atheistical works of Offenbach and hit librettists,
thit It teems needless to Inveigh longer against their
tendencies, snd we suppose that, like model artists,
nude bsllels, and hoop skirts, Ihey will have their day
snd we w 111 return to belter things, In spite of mana
gers, If not by their assistance. Kpocht of coarse
ness come sn 1 pi wlfiont our special wonder. The
growth of lewdness and lit decay In th direction or
Puritanism might be milked by hlsloriana tire,
lulling from bad government or bad fashions. Paris,
for three centuries, possessing both these motors,
has provided the rest of the world In alt seriousness
with a stesdy stream of God forsaken literature ind
art which his required lh earnest efforts of decent
critics to item,
11 Is lo 1 lauded that the clever libretti of Offen
bach's co-workers have been set to music which will
not live, If Donltcttl had consented to write such a
builcsque, and Ids genius had been lent to perpetuate
such grostness, Low much less promise of reform
could be obtained. Odea) ach's success Is found In a
keen appredatl in of what Is prctt) and what Is gro
tesque In musical form, not allowing hit ftneylobe

prietorship In his musical Ideas. Never meaning to
be serious, he uses ths slower filter for speclsl moil
cat mnnkc) lima, snd puts to the basest uses the trans
cendentsl chords that In other dispositions would be
sublime. In Ihe spirited air, lu two-four lime,
" I'oM Ut roll ef Al OrJev," tliero occurs lu
the four opening baeri a atarllini viola! Ion or
all precedent notions or musical roprlrtiet, and
It Is a ipec'men trick of our eotnposer'a lyrical struc
ture, for which, is the Inventor, he deserves full cred
it. To detcrlb II, Is difficult. It Is a trick upon the
csr, nnd a brnve use of dissonant chords used In me
lodic succession, and seclally accented ao sa to
nuke their nslure rlalncr. There are ablo writers
who deny this ccmposcr'i talent, and say Offenbach
is Ignorsnt. Wo cannot find this In any of Ihe three
or four opi raa that havo been pnduccd he e. The
variety and contrast which are necessary to Interest
the hearer, added to a keen knowledge of stage busi
ness, are now here w anting, while Ihe musical changes
aro natural to tha plot and sllusllon. Thrss operss
etc re designed for one of the smcllest thealies In
Paris, where every chair occupied by an orchestra
player was a visible encroachment on the auditorium.
Hi nee the Instruments! department craves Indul
gence, and culls off very Utile allrnllou from the
scene. In a box of a thcatie like the Houflct Patl
slrnnes, a 1 road Joke or a bit of Improi rlrty may be
chuckled over In a cosy manner by an audience, pi ci
ty much aa a parly In a comer inty hear a questluni
bis conundrum, snd faucy lh rrst of the w Id world
Is not much Injured thereby. Hut II Is not so here.
A test theatre of the dimensions of Pike's or Nihlo's
enlarges the opera boutTo to very different propor
tions, snd wl si was a tlllfe quiet naughtiness be
comes positive Indecency, and all the harder io tol
erate lu thli era nf vocal decay, and, as a lulutiluls
for the Italian opera, utterly deplorable,
Having aald this much about Ihe libretto, lei us re
turn lo the performance of last evening, wherein
there was everything to commend In tbe prolm llon
of Iho oicra, In addition lo TosleV, Lauibelr,
and the comic tries who made the foilurie of "La
Grande Duth'sse," ihere were two first appearances:
Mr Houdln, who Is a low comic of an oilglnal and
exceedingly funny kind, and Mr. Decrrl, a tenor of
fair voice and an agreeable singer, who took tho part
of lt:l$. Mile. Tosteo atng with uioro voice than
usual, ind made Ihe classic Wen tuprernoly ridicu
lous by her rakish offen al Ihe cancan, lh absence
of which breakdown it keenly felt In Ibis oi era be
