SUICIDE of a young Lady.?As hereto
fore stated iu the Gazette, Miss Rebecca
;;:,icV ft respected young lady, living near
,. ,onjft Station, on the Alexandria and
Frederickeburg Railway, committed suicide
,, jaturdsy las: by shooting herself with a
An account of the sad affair sent to
! , unlay says the young iady had been
;o s despondent mood for seveial days pre?
vious to the suicide, and for about a "week
Dsd been roaming through the woods.
,peoding the whole of last Friday plodding
around the country contiguous to her home.
\t eight o'clock that night she entered a
neighbor's house, where she remained till
nioruiog. She was wet when she reached
tbe bouse by exposure to the rain and was
barefoot, having her shoes in her hands.
Al";er eaving the neighbor's house she pro
iseded to her own home, from which, late
in the afternoon, abe surreptitiously took a
iU0 loaded with No. S shot, and going
about a quarter of a mile from the house
made preparations to shoot herself through
tbe heart. The gun was rather too long for
her purpose, for after placing the muzzle to
ber ho^oin she found she could not reach the
iriiger. Not to b9 baffled, however, in her
i urpose, she dug a hole iu the ground into
which she put the stock of the firearm and
bltached a piece of siring to tbe trigger,
. ckod the weapon, again placed t he muzzle
?fcere she supposed the teat of life lies and
discharged the gun by jerking tbe string.
j be load entered her side, making a fright
ful wound which soon covered her with
re, and in that condition she started to
run home, but after going about fifty yards
-be fell. She then called to her eldest broth?
er to bring ber chloroform that she
might die easy. She wa=j soon taken
into the house and a physician summoned,
but her wound wae mortal and at about
;tvelve o'clock Sunday night she died, still
begging for an anesthetic, saying shr?
irould "take nothing that would make her
The cause of the young woman's
erratic proceedings an 1 eventual suicide is
-aid to have been superinduced by an ar
Jent affectiou she had engendered lor a
young man named Anthony Bennett, and
thinking her visions of connubial happiness
would never be realized she became de?
ranged. Jo her last moments when delirious
shf called for the young man on whom her
atfecti ms centred, and imagining him to be
present, said, "You have come too late."
The remaius of the unfortunate young
womau wero interred Tuesday afternoon.
No Right to Ride ox the Engine.?
Tne Court of Appeals of Virginia, in a de
cisioo delivered in Richmond yesterday,
liys down the principle that a person eau
uat recover damages from a railroad com
pauy while riding on its trains without hav?
ing permission from proper officials to do
ao. The case before the court was an ap?
peal from Pittsylvania county. In this case
Pioach wa3 injured by a railroad accident.
The proof was that he had at one lime been
I: reman on this railroad ; thatou the (lay in
ijaeetion he was riding, free of charge, on
mo engine at the invitatiou of the engineer,
and that he was there seen and saluted by
tbe inductor. Roach claimed that ho did
not kuow of any iule of the company which
paitively forbldi the presence in the cab of
sny outsider ; but the Court held that, hav?
ing beon a fireman, he should have known
it, and that ueithertbe engineer nor tho
conductor had a right to invite him in tho
ib. It was held that Roach was a trespos
f<rr and wrongdoer, and that he could not
rrrover for the injuries he sustained.
County Republicans. ?At a meeting of
the republicans of Jefferson district, in the

Cumberland Coal.?The Peuosyiva
nia Kiilroad has heretofore been taking
comparatively little coal from the Cumher
land mines, but a decision has just, been
reached to abip Cumberland coal to Phila?
delphia aud the surrounding country at the
same laics as Cleat Held coal. The ooal will
en over the Huntington and Broad
Pop Railroad, and it is expected that 500,
000 tnus a year will be carried. Last year
the Pennsylvania carried but 4!'.iH2 tons
from Cumberland, while the B. & O. Rail?
road shipped 7i>lt,4G.'i tons of the SS0.424
shipoed from the mines. This is a blow at
ihe B, v\ O., which cannot deliver its ooal
through the Chesapeake aud Dataware Ca?
bal, aud also at tbe Chesapeake and Ohio
Canal, where tbe high tolls render shipping
so much less profitable than formerly. The
cc-t bound coal will probably be driven to
the F 'enus) Ivania road.

Our Parasols have come, and now is the time to buy before they
have been picked over, The stock is always larger and the variety
greater at the first of the season than at any other time. Another
reason for an early examination is that we have on approval for 3
short time only a number of VERY CHOICE STYLES which we will
return if not sold. We have none of last season's stock on hand, all of
of our Parsols having been purchased this spring.
We are offering elegant Table Damask at$l and $1.25, former prices
$1 50 and $1 10. We have
DAMASK TABLE COVERS,
3 7-8 yards long, at $4 75. They are splendid values.
Our expectations for this season thus far have been more than real?
ized, and the work turned out has been eminently satisfactory,
