stltd on Tuesday uight, before tue Committee

"*_**_* was used by the parties in the argu

t ihe case, we learn, are as follows:
At about llie o'clock yesterday morning,
Br Whitely entered the vestibule of the

during tbe absence of ber lather. On tbe
day of the marriage, a girl, named Emma,
residing in the bouse, induced plaintiff, with
tbe consent of her mother, to visit New York
promising to retnrn the same evening —
Shortly after going out, they were met by
kiilder, who took the parties to a store in
Cherry street, at which place he poured
something which she thought was cologne on
plaintiff, handkerchief, hut it turned ont to
bo a narcotic. Tbe parties then went to a
clergyman, who had been visited the day be
fore by Kidder aud induced by bis statements
to agree to perform the marriage ceremony.
Tbe next day plaintiff acquainted her mother
with tbe marriage, at the same time imploring
forgiveness, as she did not know what shr

to obtain a consent to the ratification of the

Naval Ibtblligbnob.—The United States
steam trigate Niagara, which is to convey the
Japaueee Embassy home, baa just come out
of dry dock, at New York, where she has been
thoroughly overhauled and renovated. On
coining out of dock, steam was immediately
applied, and her engines were fully tested.
Everything proved very satisfactory. She
was *hen hauled under the derrick, nlongside
of the wharf, where she had a new main top
mast put in, aud her guns reiransported on
board of her. She carries twelve guns, each
weighing 15.000 pounds. Each one of these
guns will throw a shell, weighing24o pounds,
a distance of fonr miles. Sbealso carries tour
brass boat howitzers, which are ia tended to
be used on shipboard or on shore. Tbe Niag
ara has two engines, each of 1,0-0 horse power.
Her tonnage is nearly 5,-oU The Niagara is
said to be tbe largest, tbe most efficient and
(be prettiest man-of-war afloat—in fact, she
is a floating palace. She will be all ready for
sea by tbe latter end of tbis week. Tbe United
States corvette Port smooth was at Porto
Praya en tbe Bth ult, to sail in a few days for
Madeira; officers and crew all well. Tbe
United States steamship Wyandotte, Captain
Stanley, sailed from Key West on the llih
inst., on a cruise along tbe south side of Cuba.
Tbe Mohawk, Captain Craven commanding,
will soon follow her. The corvette Savannah,
Captain Joseph R. Jarvis, was at Vera Cruz
ou tbe 7th inst.; nil well.
The following United States vessels were at
Aspinwall on the Mb inst.: frigate Sabine,
etoreship Falmouth, (permanent,) and cor
vette Si. Louis. Tbe latter vessel arrived at
Aspinwall on tbe Itb, from Greytown. All
continue in good health.
A Pbdestbian Exclusion.—A number of
youug meu ol Philadelphia, says tbt Inquirer,
graduates of tbe High School and tbe Pean
aylvuaia University, will start, in a few days,
upon a pedestrian excursion or foot tramp lor
Niagara Falls. The party comprises some
tried foci travelers. Two of them, we be
lieve, have already made t-imtlar summer
jaunts to Pittsburg, and one of them has
walked to tne Sc boo ley's Mountains and the
C.it-kills. The usual mode of procedure con
sists of Seoul iramp of sixteen miles in the
early morning. The "burden and heat of tbe
day" is passed iv the picturesque retreat of
some wayside inn, and a further journey ot
ten miles is made in the early evening. The
luggage of tbe party will consist of an army
knapsack, buckled io the back and shoulders,
cuuiainiug only necessary clothing, and the
iudispeusable pipe. A single change of wear
ing apparel is deemed sufficient. The route of
travel lies along tbe Lehigh river to Mauch
Chunk, and a "cross cut" to Wilkesbarre and
Wyoming, thence up the Susquehanna to El
miraand (via the seven lakes) to Niagara-
Two week* is calculated to be the extent ol
time required for tbe fulfilment of ihi. part of
the programme. The route borne will be aloi g
_B*__fa_a_ata and Alleghany valleys. Thepany
comprises seveu youug men, many of whom
are excellent geologists and naturalists, and
ilueai and vigorous writers.
A Wipe Kills Hursklf bu.au_-.Hbb If u*,
bakd Cuxws Touac'Co.—Mrs. Keb cca Ne.-h
--iug, a native of Germany, thirty-nine years ul
age, residing in Tenth street, near Avenue I>,
Hew York, w_s walking with her hit. band ana
some acquaintance, on Sunday evening, on
Harlem bridge, when reaching the centre of
that structure she suddenly stopped, and,
without giving ai.y intimation oilier intention,
jumped into ihe water. When the body, how
ever, was taken from the water life was ex
tiuct. The deceased was married nine years
since, bat daring tbe greater part of ibe time
ber relation witb her husband had been un
pleasant, and she had refused to live witn him,
anil had visited Europe and California in the
capacity of nurse to invalid tourists. Return
ing from the latter place eoine three mouths
since, a reconciliation between herself and
husband was effected, which was not dis
turbed until a few minutes previous to her
death, when a dispute arose during the pro
gress of their walk, on the subject of tobacco
chewing, to which practice Mr. Nestling was
addicted, aud which was a source of great of
fence Ui his wife. Neither he nor the others
who heard the argument believed for a mo
ment that a difference npon what some look
upon as a trivial .natter, wonld have sufficed
as a motive for suicide.
A Tsbbible Situation.—An Englishman
who could not speak good German was riding
a tew weeks ago on tbe railroad from Dresden
to Leipsic, wben be raked, as well as he could,
bow long it took to go through the tunnel.—
The person be spoke to thought be asked how
long before ibe tunnel would be reached, nud
so he answered, "la half an hour." When
tbey approached the place the Englishman
threw down his carpet bag and pulled off his
coat. In a few minutes all were enveloped in
the darkness of the tunnel. After some ten
minutes a streak of light appeared, and the
ladies, oppressed by the heavy atmosphere,
seemed impatient to be again iv pure air-
Soon tbe fall light came, every one took a
long breath, when suddenly the ladies gave a
simultaneous shriek aud pulled their veils
over their faces, to hide from them tbe disas
trous condition of the Englishman. The poor
man thought the passage through the tunnel
would take thirty minutes, and had been
surprised by returning to light in the midst of
his toilet, which be had not been able to make
at Dresden, and for which be thought he
would takeadvaatage of the supposed hall
DssTßicTivß Hail Stobb Oa Satur

the bloc- mast seemed to be stationary, bus
tards, hawks and crows came sweeping down
from tbeir nestlings, knowing instinctively
tbeir great daager. After a few heavy dis
cbarges of electricity, tbe mighty mass took
up its march, destroying wheat, corn and
oats, and ail such vegetation, tor about one
mile in breadth. Its direction was southeast,
through one of tbe most productive portions
o* Loudoun, destroying many fields of wheat
that promised well for twenty-five bushels

hMM —The following is an extract of a letter
from a gentleman residing nt Hnvuna, who
weot oat in the Motet Taylor witb Isaac V-
Fowler. It conclusively establishes tho
whereabouts of Fowler. Th* letter bean
data Havana, Joce 3d:
■ We bad only three ladies on board and tix
gentlemen, aad among tb* latter was the lata
«_s* _V* r ' Mr - F *wler, of New York. He
railed himself, while on board, 'Mr. Potts •
and appeared quite sociable. After arriving
at Havana, he called oa Mr. Helm, oar con
sul, told bim who be wm, and asked bim If
he should inform me. The consul replied in
tbe affirmative. So • Mr. Potts' called and
informed me. He also informed me that Mr.
Helm and myself were tbe only two persons
in Cuba who knew who he was : but at ibis
present waiting many persons know bim and
all about the affair. I should have said tbat
became on board ths Moses Taylor at Sandy
Hook, from a steam-tug, be having left tbe
city tbe night previous. What his future in
tentions are, I do not know. This, of course
puts at rest tbe rumors receutly put in circu
lation, that Mr. Fowler had never left New
York, but was living secretly there with a
C'H ABACTBB ABO PXCULIABITV OB SALT
Labb.—Every reader has beard of Salt Lake,
but very few persons know anything of its
extent and peculiar nature. A writer speaks
That this lake should be all salt is ao anom
aly. AU large bodies of water into which
streams discbarge themselves, while they
have severally no outlet, are, or should be,
salt. It one such is fresh, that is an anomaly,
indeed. Lake Utah, probably, receives as
much saline matter as Salt Lake, but she dis
cbarges it through the Jordan and remains
herself fresh ; while Salt Like, having no is
sue, save by evaporation, is, probably, the
saltiest body of water on earth. Tbe ocean is
comparatively fresh; even the Mediterranean,
at Leghorn, is not half so salt. lam told that
three barrels of this water yield a barrel of
salt; that seems rather strong, yet its intense
Miltness, no oue who has not had it in bis eyes,
his mouth, his nostrils, can realize. You can
no more sink in it than iv a clay bank; bnt a
very little of it >n your longs would suffice to
strangle you. You make yonr way in irom
a hot, rocky beach, over a chat* of volcanic
basalt tbat is trying to the feet, but at tbe
depth of a yard or more you have a fine sand
bottom, and here the bathing is delightful.—
The water is of a light green color lor about
ten or twenty roas, then "deeply, darkly,
beautifully blue." No fish can live In it •no
frogs abide in it; few birds are ever seen dip
ping ia it.
Ikcidkkt op ths Torkado.—The Daven
port (Iowa) Gazette, relating some of tbe re
markable incidents of the late tornado, has tbe
A little girl, three years old, wm found in a
slough in the northwestern part of this coun
ty, tbis side of the "Waubeey," near Mrs.
Bradon's residence, and probably a couple of
miles from the track of tbe tornado. She was
seen to fall, and found almost buried in the
mud. When t ken out, she was found to be
alive. She was taken care of, aud te now ap
parently well, excepting that she is not al
together sensible. She cannot tell anything
about herself, and is utterly unknown. From
Hogers' Settlement, in Clin ion county, a child
lour years old was carried a distance of two
miles aud killed.
Ths Champiobs' Exhibitions.—Heenan
and Savers "_howed" at Manchester, Eng., on
tbe 4Ti inst. Six rounds were sparred. In
round I,both men were well np, and after some
hitting and stopping, Heenan's long arm suc
ceeded in reaching Toms mouth, and ihe lat
ter fell, not so much through, tbe force of the
bluw as a step on the platform, for at tbe time
be was struck be wm giving back. _d round—
Heenan was again on Tom's face. 3d round—
A good deal of feinting, and at last Sayers
lunged out, hitlieenan on the face.and near
ly knocked him down. 4th round—Blows ex
changed on the face. sth round—Sayers on
Heenan's face again. 6th round—Tbe hitting
wm really grand in this last round. Three
several times did Heenan hit Sayers on the
forehead, and as many times did Sayers hit
Heenan. Doth men came to close quarters,
and then retired, whereupon they were loudly
cheered and recalled.
Horsb Stun- to Death by Bxbb.—A valu
able horse, owned by Rev. Jno. P. Hall, ol
Frederick, Ind., was stung to death by bees
last week. On the inside of the fence, where
the horse was hitched, was a stand of bee
hives, and during Mr. Hall's absence the bees
attacked the horse furiously. Unfortunately,
the bead-baiter was new and strong, and the
efforts of tbe tortured animal to disengage
himself were fruitless. At length, a servant
boy, veiled and gloved, was sent with a knife
to cut the bitcbing-strap; but when he came
to the rescue, he found the horse's mouth wide
open and filled with bees, which H'erally
stung bim to death. Violent inflammation
ensued nnd the poor beast died of suffocation
during the day.
TbS Cost or tbs Japavbsb Embassy.—
The cost of bringing the Japanese from San
Francisco to Washington and eatertainii g
them during twenty-six days' stay and cost oi
Government train to Philadelphia, amounted
to tfll.ooo, the items being as follows:—Trans
portation across tbe Isthmus, $4,00.; enter
tainment at Washington during twenty-six
days' stay, including hack hire, wines, Ac,
§7,400; charier of steamboat, government
trains, Ac, .-,(RK). The cost of entertaining
the Japanese in Philadelphia for seveu days,
will, it is said, amount to 815,0.1), being gd.ixj.
more than the appropriation, and over $7,000
more than during their whole stay in Wash
Poisoning Rats.—Tbe best food with which
to mix poison for killing rate is pumkin seeds.
Wet them, aad sprinkle ou a little arsenic,
which will adhere to the seeds. Tbey will be
eaten by rats and mice, while cats, fowls, Ac.,
uot being fond of snch food, will not meddle
with them. Wherever poison is pnt up for
these troublesome pests of the farm, water
should be near by, so tbat they may eat, drink
and die, outside ot tbeir holes aad hiding
places. Musk rats, which are often trouble
some pests npon some farms, bordering upon
creeks or ponds, may be poisoned witb arse
nic upon pieces of parsnip or sweet apple.—Ai
Jail Dkstroykd bt Fibs.—On tbe 14th inst
a fire broke ont iv the jail at Carl in vi lie, 111.
in a cell occupied by a negro. All efforts to
get into tbe cell at the time the fire was first
discovered were unavailing, tbe smoke pour
ing out in such suffocating volumes as to ren
der entrance impossible. In the meantime tbe
agony of the negro was manifested in terrible
screams and cries for relief. There being no
fire engine in the town, and no bote ia tbe jail,
and the resort to buckets proving unavailing,
the poor fellow was left to hit fate. The jail
was completely destroyed.
Mubdbb.—Last Saturday night, some Ger
mans, who had just returned Irom au enter
tainment, given by Mr. A. W. Bolenios, in
Lancaster, Pa., were standing at tbe residence
of Mr. Myers, in that city, when two men who
were passing made some iasulting remark,
aad one of them, drawing a revolver, fired
into the crowd, instantly Silling Adam Rees,

Tl* Late Defalcation.—VT* have not before
noticed tbe alleged defaleatloa of Edwin Ro
bibson, Preeideat of the Richmond, Fred
ericksburg and Potomac Railroad Company,
because wt could not gat tucb information re
lative to it as we deemed reliable. Designing
to give tbe facts whenever tbey could bear
rived at, we have made inquiries, from time
to time, of those who were most likely io
know, and now give the following statements:
Mr. Robinson became a large stockholder in
the village of Ashland, and with the view of
building it up nnd making it profitable to
himself and the railroad company over
which he presided, made extensive improve,
mente involving the expenditure of large
sums of money. As for back as 1857, he com
menced tbe pse of money belonging to tbe
company, which became known to tbe Trea
surer, but from his long intimacy with and
warm friendship for the President, the know
ledge on his part that Mr. Robinson bad am
ple means to make good what be knew him to
have used, and his uromises from time to time
to do so, be refrained from divulging it to tbe
Directors. Sanguine of the success of bis
schemes, Mr. Robinson has continued to use
mon ys of the company, when they came into
bis hands, for his private purposes, until tbe
amount has run up to about 532,000; Bad has
also given notes, due hills and other accept
ances, as President of tbe Company, to the
amount of 8121,000, the greater proportion of
whicb he bra expended in improving the
Ashland property and tho race track near
tbat place. In negotiating so much paper,
Mr. Robinson baa necessarily been heavily
■■shaved," as moet men are who are pressed for
On Monday last, Mr. Robinson culled tbe
Hoard of Directors of his Company together,
laid before tbein his defalcations, furnishing a
list of the liabilities of the company incurred
by bim, and tendered his resignation. Me then
deeded to the Company bis Ashland property,
includirg the race track,a tract of land in
Hanover, his new and handsome residence in
Richmond, thus securing them against loss as
tar as he con Id—and here we may remark tbat
good judges estimate tbe value of his effects
at not less than si 00,000, so that the Company
wiil not probably lose more than 875,000.
The Directors, after receiving tbe resigna
tion of their President, assumed bis liabilities
as per the list furnished by him, and accepted
his property, deeds to which were promptly
made them and recorded. Oae of tbe Direc
tors—there being five present—then offered a
resolution to prosecute Edwin Robinson for
felony. Wben tne vote was taken, two were
for, and two against it, the chairman finally
voting in the negative, because the Director
had assumed the liabilities incurred by the
President, and received iv lieu therefor deeds
for his entire effects.
We have thus stated briefly all tbe facte
connected with this sad and unfortunate affair
that have come within our knowledge. The
Board of Directors, it is possible, will make a
report to the stockholders, and will no doubt
be able to show tbat the lose sustained is not
sufficiently great to interrupt ia tbe slightest
degree the affairs of the company, by derang
ing its financial operations, or depreciating its
President Daniel bus been directed by the
Board to make a thorough investigation into
the affairs of tbe company,and to procure all
necessary aid in doing so. Should this exam
ination divulge anything new, we will make
it known in due time.
Critical Condition. — Eleazer Vest, the young
man whose skull was fractured last Friday
afternoon by tbe accidental explosion of a
piece of machinery in Mr. H. M. Smith's fac
tory, is iv a very critical condition, though
hopes are entertained of his recovery. When
first injured his head was merely bandaged,
without removing the shattered bone, and. as
a consequence, the compression on the brain
produced con v unions ou Sunday night. Drs.
Petticotas aud Peachy were then called in to
perlorm an operation, and did so, removing
the fragments of bone iv the most skillful
manner. Yesterday morning the patient was
entirely conscious, and every symptom was
favorable lor his recovery.
Boots '. Boots .'.' Boots.'.'.' —A novel, homely,
bnt at tbe same time interesting occasion, will
take place this afternoon, at Richmond Col
lege, at 5 o'clock. It is the presentation of a
pair of 810 boots, awarded to tbe ugliet stu
dent of the College, by the ''Ugly Club," com
posed of young me__by no meant distinguish
ed for beauty. Thtßfortunate (!) recipient of
ibis distinction is M. E. Shaddock, of Caro
line. The presentation speech will be deliv
ered by S. F. Chapman, of Page, the "second
besr" ugliest member of the Club. We hope
there will be a good many out, as instead ol
the "sheep skins," so often and undeservedly
conferred by Alma Maters on their sons, in
this instance the Alumnus of the "Ugly Club"'
walks away "knee-deep in rait skin."
A Mad Dog is said to have been killed near
the Old Fair Grounds yesterday morning.
Our informant assures us tbat the dog was
certainly suffering from rattan .- and if this
be so, no citizen is secure against hydropho
bia. At this time there are not less than five
thousand curs about the streets, any of whom
are liable to be bitten by a mad dog, and may
in turn bite men, women and children in pas
sage. Will not tbe City Oonncil adopt some
ordinance by which tbe public thoroughfares
can be relieved of such dangerous nuisances I
Fire —Yesterday afternoon, about 1 o'clock,
▼olumes of smoke were seen to issue from tbe
Medical College, and the alarm being speedily
given, the Fire Brigade repaired to tbe scene
with their apparatus. Tbey soon ascertained
that some of the joists, near the chimney, had
taken fire from a flue leading from the kitchen,
but thai no serious injury was likely to result.
A few buckets of water extinguished the burn
ing timber, and thus allayed the excitement
which was caused by the announcement that
the College was on fire.
President Elected.— The Board of Directors
of tbe Richmond, Fredericksburg aud Poto

V. Danisl, Jr., Esq., President of tbeir Com
