glad if you will fix a price, or if you
will appoint a committee of your body
to do BO. The erection of the monument
at this point will add to the appearance
of that portion of the town, and I am

ated. Yours, very respectfully,

Resolved, That the undersigned, com
mittee, be instructed to petition th<
honorable City Council to remove th?
building wo at present occupy as a truel
bouse, and in ns stead, erect a substau
tial and suitable building.
We respectfully ask that the abo YO bi
grauted, as the company have ordered i

be entirely too small to bouse our nev
machine. Wo desire a building tweuty
seven by sixty, with a second floor
which door to be used ns a meetini
room for tho company. While we desir
a tenable building, we do not ask a costl;
one, as we feel the city finances are no
ia such a condition as will warrant th
city to ereot an expensive building. W
respectfully ask, further, that imm?diat
action be taken in this matter,, as th
new truck is soon expected, and withou
accommodations to house it, wo will b

THE ITALIAN 'VENDETTA.-Rome is
vastly agitated over the discovery of the
body cf a lady which the Tiber yielded
up near the Ponte Molle, one evening
early in the present month. The viotim
was young and richly attired. The dis?
covery was made by a fish vender, who
atraightway gave the alarm and sum?
moned the proper authorities and the
pale-faced citizens to the spot. Ia the
boBom of the unfortunate lady was
plunged a dagger with a diamond stud?
ded hilt, and a faint stream of blood was
discernible on the silk dress. Profuse
black curls hung disheveled over the
shoulders and face, and on a plain white
collar, pinned to the dress, below the
dagger wound, was written in blood the
terrible word "Vendetta." A short ex?
amination waa sufficient to establish the
lady's identity, and it was then disco?
vered that she was the Princesa Catari?
na di Chigi, one of the most beantiful
and brilliant of the Italian belles. She
had been absent from her parente* palace
for some days previously, bat pride had
forbidden a publication of the fact. The
cause of the tragedy is supposed to be
explained by the fact that she was be?
trothed to Prince Erberto Guiglo, who
loved her madly; but at last her feelings
underwent a religious chauge, and she
determined to enter a convent and take
tho veil. This determination aroused
the Prince to such a pitch of frenzy that
it is considered almost certain that ha
murdered the one he could not marry.
Edwin Forrest's agent )ost"$3,000 of
bia master's money, the other day, in
the barber shop of the Continental,
Philadelphia. He supposes that he
dropped it on the floor, and that some
individual who wasn't honest picked it
np and held fast to it in silence. Mr.
Forrest says that it's all very well to say
on the stage that "he who steals my
purse steals trash," but when it comes
down to real life, and disgusting reality,
it alters the case very materially.
