WEDNESDAY EVENING, MARCH 23.
A Scenk at the Vatican.?There has
been in Rome, for some weeks past, aa Eng?
lishwoman of good family named Ali.-s
Loughlin. She is not crazy, but her mind
is feeble on some points. Unfortunately,
she obtained a ticket of admission to the
anniversary mass at the Sistine Chape!. She
was not in the chape! half an hour before
there was some trouble. Ladies are nil pro
vided with seats on a comfortable balcony
opposite, and similar to, the or,e provided
for the ambassadors, etc. Miss Loughlin
concluded she wanted a better seat, and,
selecting the most desirable chair, she made
her way through the crowd and demanded
it of the lady occupying it. She was mi
Eoglish princess?, sho said, and her ticket
called for that particular chair. Naturally,
the proper owner of'tho chair deciiuctl to
vacate, and, it must no confessed, a noisy
discussion followed. The discussion, to the
horror of all who witnessed i'., ended by
Miss Loughlin giving the lady a rir.giug slap
in the face. The guard.-? approached her, and
finally persuaded her to leuve the balcony.
The other lady had, of course, promptly
fainted. MUs Loughlin next showed a dis?
position to go up to the papal throne for a
seat, but agaiu tne Swiss Guards restrained
hergentiy. After a little while ehe again
became nci?-y, aud she was told either to be
quiet or to leave the chapei. She did nei?
ther, but became hysterical, whereupon two
ethiwart Swiss 'aid aside their balhi-rts and,
picking her up, carried her out of the chap?
el. The entire disturbance? was over locg
before the? entrance of the Tope.
Not with.-tar.dir.c the great number who
yearly succomb to this terrible and fatal
disase which i? daily winding its fetai coils

The gazette is now the oldest paper ic
the Statt, and with few exceptions the ol
est in the country, und itt> usefuinea ba;
been demonstrated and appreciated durii
the eighty seven yeaes of its existence. In
its columns has always been found a mirror
' of passing events, and the careful chroni
i cling of the history of what is going on m the
world has ever been its aim. It is always
welcomed in the household, while in the
counting room ami workshop it has become
The GAZETTE has better facilities lor ob?
taining news than any paper outside o; I
national capital. Situated as it is so close
to the great centre of new-1, it eDjoy.i daily
the benefit of the Associated Press dis?
patches from every part of the world : hence
its patrons can read from its columns in tin
evening what has transpired that day
every portion of our own domain ss wel .
from every part of the- habitablo globe.
Consequently it is r.n every day occurrence
for the Gazette to publish telegrams from
tho various European capitals Lweive at ?
fifteen hours eoriier than the morning pn
Another feature that serves to make tb<
Gazette a great desideratum with rue
chants is its afternoon market reports irom
New York, Baltimore, Chicago and othei
The local department furnishes a rail m.d
complete history of everything that occut?
in and near the city, and this feature will,
as ever, receive careful attention.
Correspondence from Washington, Rich
mond and every section of the State, i.^ pub
j lisbed regularly, and all events of interest
j occurring within the bounds of the Com
| monweailh are to be found in tho column
of the Gazette.
The Gazette's circulation is steadily in
creasing, especially among people who con?
sult ita advertising columns before purchas?
ing. That this is self-evident may be inter?
red from the fact that a large country edi?
tion?nearly a& large as the daily?is ient
all over this section of country three time
a wt-f-k, and is read by thousands, most o:
whom send hero or to contiguous cities to
make purchases. The advantages of ad?
vertising in the Gazette are, therefore, ap?
bates of subscription.
