asiiixoton, D. C. 22. Uuite.ui came
into court this moinlng upp.uciitly under
soino strong excitement. Col Chillies
Heed took a seat by his side and whisper
ed something to him Uuiteau, striking
the table violently, began to cxpiitulule,say
ing, "1 wont do anything of tho kind." At
this point Scovillc whispcied some expos
tulation, when Guitcauangiily said to him,
"I won't have you compromising my case
by your foolish questions. You must get
oil' my case if you can't stop compromis
ing it." A uhispcied consultation be
tween tho three mentioned seemed to re
suit in p icifying the prisoner, who looked
up with a smile and said, "I was going to
make a speech, but I have changed my
mind an'l gues I won't do it." He then
busied himself opening his mail, remark
ing, ''This is the tirst time I have ever
opencued iny mail myself for some time."
Dr. Thcodoie Diamond, ot Auburn,
who hud been summoned for the defence
and retained by the prosecution, was called
to tho stauil. Witness believed, judlng by
the evidence lie had listened to, including
that of tho prisoner himself, and liom the
appearance and conduct of the piisoncr,
that he is n sane man. The hypothetical
questions put to Dr. Wooster yesterday
were then read to witness, and he replied,
"I should say ho was sane."

Particulars of the Killing of an
American Near Fronteras.
From Mr. Thomas Ewlng, who came la trom
Arispe, Sonoro, yesterday, it wax learned that the
officers from Fronteras brought to Arispc for trial,
on the 18th Instant, a Mexican who had killed an
American, name unknown, somewhere between
Front eras and the coal fields, some days previous.
The account given of the affair by the prisoner
was, that as ho was going over a hill, having a
handkerchief around his head Instead of a bat
upon It, ho was mistaken, as he supposed, for an
Indian, and fired upon from the bush near where
ho was traveling. Seclug the man In ambush, he
fired back aud killed him. The efiects of the de
ceased were taken with the prisoner to Arispc.
They consisted of a duck coat, lined with gray
blanketing; a soft, white hat, with a cord and tas
sels ut the ends, the hat nearly new; a pair ol
Calllornla-made, hilf gauntlet buck gloves, of
rather small size ; a pair of Bpring-back spectacles ;
a Colt's rcmodied revolver, 41 calliber, number
195,825, the same being nearly new, with an old
scabbard that had been ripped and re sewed, and
cut open both sides so that It could ho reversed
and worn upon cither tho right or left hip; one
store quilt and two pair of brown or butternut
colored blankets, well worn. From the size of
the coat and gloves it was Inferred that the de
ceased must have been a small or medium-sized
person, and from the spectacles he must have
been either near sighted or else mlddele aged.
From the fact that uo person witnessed the kill
ing, tt is Impossible te state tbe cause that led to
the deed other thau the prisoner's story. The au
thorities were giving the malter a general over
hauling to arrive at the facts so far ns in tholr
Copper ((iici-ii Xot hold.
We are Indebted to Mr. Arthur Lalng for the full
particulars of tbe reported sale of the Copper
(Juccn mine. It appears that Mr. L. Zeckcndorf,
one of the ow ners, had written to parties In Lon
don about the mine, and had sit a price upon tbe
stock, which was $S per share, or $J,000,000 for
tho property. These gentlemen sent out I. Taj
lor, Esq , of the firm of John Taylor & Sons,
London, and Mr. Thorn, a celebrated mining en
gineer, to examine the mine und make a report
upon the same. They were accompanied to llis-
.beo by Mr. James Douglass, a mining expert of
Pennsylvania. They returned from Bisbee last
evening and took the down stage for Benson.
They mado a critical examination of the mine,
which was found better thnn Ihe EriTAru report
upon the same some lime ago, for tbe reason that
a winze has been sunk upon thu ure body 15 feet
sincewe saw It, thereby adding that much to that
In sight. Ore was uleeted by Messrs. Taylor and
Thoni, and a run of 15 tous of IngoW maue, which
wns in every way satisfactory. It Is not known
whether tbe Loudon piirttes will take the mine at
$Spcr share or not. That will boa m itter for af
rowded nouse greeted the Hutchinson Com
bination Variety troupe on their first appearance
at SchlerTclin ball last evening. Taken altogetner,
the performance was un exceedingly good one,
though, owing to the unfortunate Illness of Mr.
Lorraine, the business manager, one act was una
voidably omitted. Of thu characters, Mrs. Lottlo
Hutchinson, an old Tunit;one favorite and bene
ficiary of tbe evening, deserves first meution. Un
happily, the lady was sufleriug from a severe cold,
and consequently was not hi as good voice as
usual, but otherwise she was as c .arming as ever,
and at each apyearaueo v.n applauded In a hearty
and vociferous mauher. Hnri.is and Traycrs as
end men proved them-elves of no small ability in
their line and kept Uu ujdieiice convulsed with
laughter while listening to their original Jokes and
comic songs, Miss Iieuc Baker Ingratiated her
self at once Into the good graces of the bouse,
for as well as being pretty, she has a sweet, well
cullUat.d voice, and Is n clever actress. Miss
Canie Delmar also, by iier good singing and win
ning ways, has plau.'d ln-rsell on the high road to
favoiitlsm. Mtlc De (Innvllle brought down tho

strength and activity, all of which weru accom

Tho Welt No More Mine, situated
about seven miles northwest of the
Horn Silver mine, is one of the finest
properties in the country (to spend
money on.) It is easy of access by
balloon) and has the best dumping
facilities of any mine south of Alta.
Tho only drawback to the property
is the lack of ore; with plenty of
that it would rival the (omstock
lode. There is ti shaft forty-two
inches deep from which a dritt can
bo rnn 100 teet. This valuable
property will be placed on tho East
e'rn stock market if a syndicate can
be'formed that will get out papers at
its own expense. The owners will
furnish some very rich specimens of
ore (from the Horn Silver mine) for
samples, and a diagram in blue and
rod showing tho course tho vein
ought to run. The float found a mile
away, is pronounced by experts as
being a rich chloride of assessment.
The close proximity of the Welt-No-More
to tho Horn Silver makes it a
desirable property, (for wild cat spec
ulators.) The integrity of the owners
is so well established that the mere
mention of their names is enough to
assure the most skeptical that it is uo
fraud, for with such names as .John
Taylor, Geo. Cannon and Ben Tasker
at its head it is bound to succeed.

A Wicked Reporter.
Mirat Halstead In tbe Chicago Tribune.
"Do you love me, Reginald?"
The supper in connection with the
fete champetre given by Stuyvesant
McGuire in honor of the nineteenth
birthday of his only child was over,
and the spacious parlors were filled
with the younger portion of tho as
semblage, by which they had quickly
been devoted to the worship of Terp
sichoie. Reginald Mulcahey and
Aprodite McGuire had been gliding
through the soft, seiutioua measutes
of a Strauss waltz, and as the music
ceased they had strolled into the
dimly lighted eonscivatory, where,
as they sat with clasped hands, her
pure, sweot face looking lovingly in
to his, the question with which our
story opens had been asked.
"Do I love you, my little one?" re
sponded Reginald, as he imprinted a
large Eighteenth ward kiss on the
ruby-rod lips that overhung the
drooping sensitive mouth. "Your
heart, that ever unerring and ever
vigilant monitor of tho soul, must
tell you in words far plainer than any
utterance of mine that without the
inspiration of your love my life
would be as dreary and aimless as
the editorials in a Cleveland paper,
and the days drift wearily by without
one gleam of light to brighten the
dreary horizon of my existence.
You surely cann 't but know, Aphro
dite, that before I knew you I was a
wild, reckless man, and that when
your love burst over my sin-scarred
soul a sweet joy stole over my being
a sense of cal , peaceful rest, such
a the storm tossed mariner feels when
the glad sunlight comes in golden
glory through a rift in the leaden
clouds that have so long oYrspread
the horizon nnd looked upon the
wind-swept sea in sullen glee, or
comes to the belated traveler when
the soft, mellow light of the unexpectedly-open
saloon burst upon his
enraptured vision. My love for you
and the knowledge that it is return
ed has given me an aim in life an
aim, I may say, with a large A.
With your br'ght face as a beacon
light, my course shall be as un
swerving as that of the majestic and
eternal sun, whose fervid rays are
even now kissing the limpid waters
of the Pacific.
"Say no more," said Aphrodite
"I believe you fully."
An hour later Reginald has just
finished a polka with Julia MahatFy,
and is standing near the conservatory
discussing with her tho question of
whether a blue dog or a red tree
with a chrome yellow cow standing
underneath it is the most suitable to
be painted on a teacup, whan the
sound of voices reaches his ear.
Glancing carelessly into the conserv
atory he sees Adelbert Quirk leaning
over Aphrodite McGuire as she
stands near tht Jiay window careless
ly plucking to jHeces a blush rose
which she carelessly holds in her left
hand. Adelbert is speaking very
earnestly, and as Reginald listens he
hears him say:
"Your heait, that unerring and
ever-vigilant monitor of the soul,
must tell you in words far plainer
than any utterance of mine, that
without tho inspiration of your love
my life would be as dreary and aim
less as the editorials in a Cleveland

" Curses on the reporter!" said
Reginald in hoarse, passionate tones.
Ho has sold us both tho same speech"
and with a face convulsed with
passion he passed rapidly into the
supper-room aud again tackled the
The beautiful eider-down ducks
which abound in this cold latitude
are a source of great revenue, and
are the sole property tf the inhabi
tants. They are protected by the
laws of Nor,-. ay, so that no, stray
sportsman is allowed to shoot them.
I learned the mode of procuring the
down; when the duck is about to lay
she plucks down from her own
breast, the male plucks it from his,
aud they spread a thick lining of it
all over the nest. When the nest is
completed the owner removes the
down; the patient ducks fill it a sec
ond and third time, when it is re
moved, but the fourth time it is al
lowed to remain. Thus the women
and girls find enough to empl iy
themselves in attending to these
thousands of nests, while the men
and boys make aud mend their nets
aud get fish for oil and curing. Nor
