A Georwian on the Marry.
A most extraordinary matrimonial E
sensation has recently excited Washiog. r
ton oity. The hero is a man giving the t
name of Wm, E.:Brodu, and rep're- e
sgating himuself - to be a wealthy 0
Georgia pl~ater, possessed of :a mag- o
nificent' plantation, stutely mansion, I
&c., but impoverished 'by the war, t
whose errand to that city was to dis,. 9
ipos6 of 400 aores of' the family estate 1
to raise wpeane wherewith to stock and I
improve the erainder. This man a
secured the afections or rather the 'l
person of Miss May Carpenter, of d
Vshington, by 'representing- his f
wealth, broad acres, and'reputation as 1
particularly desirable, and- promising a
to settle $10,000 on her in case of a I
marriage. $hee6 aegotiations were I
earefully kept 'froni the'eairs" of the 1
paternal head of. the family,' and even
when the day of the marriage had i
been arranged, he was still kept in 1g- 1i
norance of the whole matter. - The
plans had bei, carefully laid, and, 1
taking advantage of Mr. Carpenter's
absence, the pseudo planter and Miss i
May were joined in the holy bonds of a
matrimony by the pastor of a; fash- 1
ionablo 9hurch not two aquares distant a
from the residenoe. But two or three t
persons witnessed the oeremonies;
and 'immediately'upon their cnolu- 1
Mlon, trunk6 were hurriedly placed on'
a hackin' waitipg,,the bride and bride- I
groom, after farewell salutations and I
a few foninine tears, entered the ve- I
hicle, the impatient Jeihu slaa'nmed r
the d or,' ad the ha y couple were t
off for the sunny South. The father's
indignation may be imagined when Ite
learned the' truth in the evening from
a young sister. To add to the confu
sion, the lover of the fickle May, a
young clerk in the War Department,
who expected to marry the lady him- a
self in the Fall, eatlied to see the ob
jeot of his affection in the evening.
Father and lover started furionely for
A1oxand ria,where they intercepted the
fugatives at the hotel. There was no t
duel. The young lover did nt punch
the head of his successful rival but
there was 'simply a reconoiliation, on 4
the condition that Mr. Brown should

The Cocau Bank Robbery---A Man Ar
rested in Portland, Me., Confesses to
Being a Participant.
The PortlaidI (Me.) JArgusof July
"Oar readers will remember the
startling announcement in June last
that the Ocoan Bank of New York,.
situated on Greenwich' street, had
boen robbed of near] all the contents
of the vault-about . 2,000,000-and
there was no clue to the perpetrators
of the bold soheme. Detectives have
since been at woik on the case, but no
positive development had up to re
cently been found to give any clue to
the money. Detectives, it is said,
traced tv ) of the conspirators east,
and have made a' peetty thorou h
search. On Thursday, Blake, .te
detective who so succeessfully worked
up the Auburn murder case last win
ter, thus proving the old adage, 'set a
rogue to oatch 'a roguei was arrested.
"His story is silmlple and pretty cot'
eise iu regard to the nietnurable rob
bery. le sa lie passed through this
city on the 7th of JunO o1 his way to
New Yolk to join his pal , and after
the robbery was committed -he left the

that hired the basement under the
bank and pretended to be insurance

above mentioned, the features of the

occupants, below, an eutrance to the
same by boring with an auger through
the intervening floor. Once within
reach of the vault it seems that it was
an easy matter for the professionals to
pick the look, it not being one of the t
safest, as was afterward established.
The small safes within were easily
blown open without attracting the
attention of the night-watch, and their
contents rifled. In their hurry they
did not get a lot of gold ($30,000)
and gild-bearing bonds) to about the
"After they got well clear of the
building they found that they had
with them $600,000 in certified cheeks
and railroad bonds that were of no
use to them, so they sacrificed a trunk
they had, and left this in the trunk
on Eilizabeth street, where it was re
covered. He does not' speak of the
routes taken by the sevoral confede
rates, or where they ar-but thinks
they are still in the country. He
appears not to be very anxious about
himself, and says that all will go right
with him, and the money be has will
find its owners all right, and volun
teers to say that none of the preseut
holders will be able to use the un
lawful gains. Officers are coming to
make his acquaintance.
-'This story is good for what it is
worth. The charge on which Biake
was arrested is for the larceny of be
tween $600 and $800 from the pro.
prietor of the Arlington House, Ar
lington, Mass. The facts in the latter
case, we learn, are that Blake and his
son were left in charge of the hotel,
and he absconded with the money.
The probable influence of the Chi
nese on our politics affords, of course,
matter for grave consideration. But
does their arrival not promise an op
portunity once more of proposing an
educational test for the exercise of
the suffrage', wvith a better chance of a
favorable hearing than we have~ hith
erto had. The Fenian who now
thinks every niale has an "inalienable
right" to vote without reference to
the state of his intoelgonde, would
probably support the exaction from
the Chinese' voter of a knowledge of
the English language and of the prin
.oiples of this G overniment, and this
might furnish the first step towards a
formal recognition, applicable to all,
of the absol1ute necessity of general
education to the success of Democracy.
.We notice as a 'favorable sign of the
times that many of those who 'have
during the -last' seven years been
preac hinig, in tho 'interest 6f the be
gra, the absolute sufficiency 'of mcr,
instinct to enable a man to use the
franchise both' for his own .interest I
and that of'the coinmunity, are now~
accounting for' the hostility of the 1
.Democratic party to all social and
political reform by the enornious
amount of Ignorance in -ito ranks,4
which shows that the world moves.

From the 19th Annual report of the
Board of Trade of Baltimore we gath.
et the following interesting facts and
figures ; The number -of buildings
erected during the year 1868 wore
2879, against 1800 in 1867, aud 1334
in 1866. Total number of buildings
in Baltinore 54,512. White popula

a total of 352,136. The following
table indicates the various consus re
turns since the year 1790.
Further evidence establishing the
growth and expansion of the city,
may be seen in the rapid increase of
its assessable property since the year
1850. For that year, tho value of
both real and personal amounted to
$78,578,244. In 1860 it had increas

- During the progress of the election
a negro waiked up to Aroh'd Nichol

told him ho was going to whip him.
Nicholson immediately went for his
rifle where he had deposited it, but it
had boon removed. He then advanO

ran and was pursued. At last the no

and the fight began. While struggling
with each other another negro came
up and struck Nicholson on the back
