tention, and the track was cleared and re

CU KT s TU .LS EVE.
J lie Crowds in the Streets-Shoppers
and Shopkeepers-.Market Saturday
Night-The Hideous Horn-Blowing
No calendar wa? needed to teil folks here?
abouts that Christmas is upon us. For days
the streets have been throneed, and the store?
keepers found it hard work to serve the im?
mense mn of customers. Crowds of country?
men were In town buying their Christmas
goods and balancing their accounts. In every
department of trade business ha9 received an
invigorating impulse, and the weary em?
ployers and employees a'ike hall with un?
feigned delight the holidays of yesterday and
to-day. The banks and public offices will be
closed to-day. and there will be service held
in most of the churches, many of which have
been decorated with evergreens. The cars on
the City Railway will not run, and the post
office will be open for t he delivery of the mails I
only from S.30 to 10 A. M.
The markets, which were opened on Sitar
day night for the last time until to-morrow
morning, were crowded, and a dense throng
kept pouring thrcugh. Tue noise of the idler*,
the bargaiuing aDd trafficking, .>nil the loud
cries outside, made the markets a perfect Bed?
lam, lo heighten the din, the peripatetic
blowers of those stanniferous abominations,
known a3 tin horns, were thickly
interspersed among the crowd, and min
I gled their discordant floorings with
I the ordinary noises of the place. These
horns have got to be one ot' the established
lEStttutions ol the Christmas celebration
among the boys on the street, and are noisy
and unbearable enough to supersede all
others. For weeks pa?t they were being pre?
pared lor the market, aud, when the crisis
came, they were to be bought for three, five,
ten and nfteen cents apiece everywhere on
King street. Wednesday night of last week,
a forlorn toot might have been heard echoing
dismally through the silent air. Thurs?
day night it lound company, and Clubs
and Stars began to take notice. Fri?
day night the scattering case9 in?
creased In number, and prepared people
for the epidemic of Saturday, when the in?
famous noise of the horns never ceased, and
culminated at night in one of the most dia?
bolical serenades ever heard in the city.
King street, from Market to Calhoun, was the
favorite ground of the players, who took a
malicious delight in following where the
crowd was thickest. For hom s on this street
ihe sidewalks were jammed, and the pedes
train3 slowly moved onward in two lines,
arter the Broadway style. The point of ad?
vantage was seen by the tooters, and an or?
ganized band of thirty, which gradually swell?
ed to near a hundred, pushed through the
throng, blowing meanwhile upon their horns
as if their lives depended upon the din they
made. This band was a'so guilty of
another freak, not as noisy, but more damag?
ing than the born-blowing. While passing
the house of a citizen in Chapel street, they
became alt rac: el by the appearance of the
palings of his fence, which were neatly paint?
ed. The leader, in want oi a balan, pulled out
one of the paillcgs, and the crowd, struck by
the effect ol the staff upon the appearance of
their leader, went for the fence and Boon
During thj/hub-bub and confusion, crackers
and rockets were lrom time to lime seton",
which kept the dutiful Clubs and Stars, lo
whom the Mayor's proclamation had been
read, in a painful state of excitement. The
offences were, however, but few, and near
eleven o'clock the rain came down in torrents
and gradually cleared the streets of crowds and
noises. Yesterday symptoms of tooting could
be heard, which promise another huge dis?
TWO ATTEMPTS AT SUICIDE.
A Sorrowful Knight or the Shears
Whiskey the Cause.
About eight o'clock on Sa'urday evening a
misanthropic it 'ight of the shears named
Reinke, disgusted with the varieties ot life,
went dawn to Chlsolm's Mill and coolly Jumped
from the wharf imo the river. The action
was observed by two young men near, and
knowing that lt was rather too cool lor
bathing, one of them jumped In and pulled the
miserable man from the water. Wnen inter
rogjted by his preserver as to the cause of this
attempt upon bis life the dripping man re?
plied that lt was nothing but whiskey, and
that he had failed this lime but would do
better at the next attempt. Bis cool
manner convinced the young men that he was
jesting and they all left the wharf. An hour
or so afterward, the young men entered a
saloon on Market street, and bad been there
but a few minutes when the alarm was given
that a man was trying to hang himself In an
adjoining room. The same j o un g man who
had jumped into the water rushed up to the
room indicated, and found our indefatigable
knight of the s it ears with his tongue pro?
truding from his mouth, and giving every in?
dication of a speedy death by choking. The
tailor had selected his opportunity, and put a
noose around bis neck. Through the rope he
then put a large slick, and, by twis ing him?
self around, was-tightening the noD?o in a
most scientific manner. The ready knile of
the young man sjen severed the rope, and the
knight of the shears was reluctantly intro?
duced lo his preserver for the second time.
He wa?, however, satisfied with ihe two* at?
tempts in one doy, and has not since tried to
bereave his family.

that the great Interests which, lying so near
his hean nave induced him to consent to this
change of residence f. om our rown to the City

he so ardently desires.
It is a relieving la:tt>us that in yielding
him to the exclus" ve duties of his sacred voca?
tion there ls an evidence of improved health
and pby.-ical strengtn; and that we know that
in returning to the scenes of his earlier years,
and to the Seid ol'those memorable services to
the church, in the pulpit and pastorate, which
mainly first gave him that elevated position in
tne Christian ministry, and that extended re?
putation which he ha's so lons enjoyed, he will
find himself again in the mids: ul friends and
admirers whose affection and esteem will
have been only intensified and nelghtened by
his lonz absence from them, and whose num?
