THE BRIGN'OLI-MCCULLOCH MARRIAGE.-The
marriage of these musical artists, which took
place (says the New Tork Herald) in Canada, last
summer, was celebrated by the customary recep?
tion or friends a few days ago at the residence of
the bridegroom, In Eighty-fourth street. It would
have occurred earlier, but for the fact that the
Signor was fulfilling an engageaient with the
INTERESTING ANNIVERSARY-.-The Gentle?
men's Assoc atlon, auxiliary to the Confederate
Widow's Home, has appointed its first ann Iver
sary Tor Monday night, at the Music Hail of the
Academy of Music. The annual oration will be
delivered by Major Theodore G. Barker. The
cause ls one which enlists the Interest of our
wbole people, and with snoh an advocate, it will
not fall to command attention.
THE NONDESCRIPT IN FLORIDA.-The celebra?
ted Mrs. Dr. Mary Walker, a species of bloomerite i
mortality, was lu Savannah at the last accounts
en route for Florida. She proposes to establish her
peculiar school of woman's rights' In the latter i
unfortunate s tate, and nurse ber own personal cor- ;
porosity. A Savannah paper says her dress was
of Confederate gray extending to her knees, the i
balance cf her attire being a serviceable pair of i
bifurcated unmentionables, terminating In a i
pretty pair of gaiter boots.
THE COUNTY SENATORIAL ELECTION.-Curb- 1
Btono gossip among the corner politicians points
unerringly In the direction of a colored candidate
for the now vacant office of senator front Charles . 1
ton. Whether Parson Adams or Parson Cain,' or
some other person whose name has not been pub- '
llshed to the world, will be chosen, are questions
for time and the caucus to solve; but all the
chances are In favor of equal division of the '
donors between the two races. In other words,
Senator Corbin ls regarded as a sumc.cntly dis- 1
linet, emphatic aud Individualized representative 1
>f the white element to hold his own and satis ry 1
tepubllcau consistency. It ls als) urged that an
tonest and capable colored senator is to be pre- 5
erred to a doubtful white Radical, who may pos- 1
tess more Intellectual force than moral virtue,
rbis ls true, and if the Republicans make their '
;holce of a colored man on such terms they may
jlalm -forgiveness for their shortcomings in 1
nany other respects.

THE PRATT .INQUEST.-A coroner's Jury was
empanelled yesterday morning to Inquire into
the cause of the death of Captain Horace A. Pratt,
who was one of the sufferers at the explosion at
the Etiwan Works, and died from the effects or
the injuries he then received. The evidence in
the lato Williams Inquest was submitted, but not
proving sufficient to satisfy the Jury, they, ad?
journed over until to-day, when they will meet
at the City Heiland examine several witnesses
who have been summoned.
Fina.-The fire briefly recorded in THR
NEWB of yesterday, occurred about hair-past 1
o'clock, A. M., in the blacksmith shop In thc rear
of C. Bart A Co.'s fruit store on Harket street.
Extending to the front, the greater portion of the
store was injured, and the stock badly damaged
by water. Scorched cocoanuts, demoralized
bananas, mushy-looking oranges and lemons,
and moist books, made a dreary aspect yesterday
of what had been a bnsy place. Three appraisers
were engaged in estimating the damage. The
accounts were saved. Daring the fire, a large
amount of fruit and fireworks was stolen. Some
of the thieves were arrested, but let off with a
reprimand. Messrs. Bart A Co. were insured in
the North British Mercantile Insurance Company
for live thousand dollars.
IXION AT THE ACADEMY.-The rollicking bur?
lesque of Ixion, and his flirta; lons la the realms
of Olympus, was given last night In very spirited
style by the beauteous Blondes. The divinities
kept the audience in a roar throughout the per?
formance, and we hardly know whether the palm
ought to be awarded to the raging Mars, with
his fearful sabre Oe mon pere, or to the witching
Minerva, with her Lilliputian helmet and Brob
dlgnaglan chignon, who seemed to possess the
faculty of communicating to the* house the good
spirits she so copiously and frequently Imbibed
from the handy flask in -her delicate reticule.
Miss Weber, as Ixion, was, as usual, Immense.
Her songs and especially her dances were sys?
tematically and enthusiastically encored. This
troupe grows In public favor nightly. This (Fri?
