A Dual Affliction.?An account of
the serious burning of Miss Minnie
Brengle appeared iu yesterday's Ga
. El i k. Fifteen or twenty minutes after
the sad affair the family of the young
woman found themselves plunged int."
mother sorrow by the sudden paraly
- - of Mrs. Virginia Brengle, who, as
may be supposed, had been terribly
shocked by the sad accident to her
: ighter. Her entire right side be?
came affected, her mouth beiug dis
irted and she rendered totally helj
ess. Ihr condition was regarded 68
vi i v &eri >us, and throughout last night
she, as well as her daughter, occasioned
tbe family much anxiety. This morn?
ing, to the great relief of those who
bad anxiously performed their vigils,
her condition had perceptibly improved,
and hopes of her ultimate recovery ate
now entertained. Miss Brengle suffered
considerably during the night, she be
.ng unable to sleep, and to-day she was
suffering from internal fevers. Yestei
day she was unable to tell how the ac?
cident occurred to her, but to-day she
gave a connected aecouut of the man?
ner in which she was 1 urned. She eays
she had a kerosene lamp ou the toilet
table at the time, and, desiring to heat
a curling iron, removed the chiin
? . . leaving the flame uaked. A few
moments later the lamp exploded into
.a thousand pieces, scattering the burn?
ing oil over some inflammable articles
at hand. Iu her endeavors to ex?
tinguish the flames her clothing he
Mine ignited and she ran screaming to
her half sifter, Mrs. Peverill, who, see
ber sad plight, was afraid to go close
to her lest her clotbiug also would take
.'ire. It was then that her father aud
Mr. Charles Beach, both of whom
were severely burned on the hands,
ran to the rescue and extin
guished her burning entlang. Mr.
ISrengleand his family, who are thus
utfged into a double sorrow, have the
sympathy of all their friends and ac?
quaintances iu their trying hour, and
many sincere wishes for tho ultimate
recovery of the unfortunate young
woman and her stricken mother are
made.
Police Court.?Mayor Strauss pre
hiding.?The following cases were dis ]
posed of this morning:
Matilda Carter, colored, arrested by
< ?flicers Smith and Crritlin for disorder
? conduct, was fined $?">.
Henry Munsoo, colored, arrested by
Officer Ticer charged w ith an assault
on Edward Gray son, also eolored, was
lined $?">.
wVnry Simmons, arrested by Officer*
Bettia pijid Young charged with ab
ictiug jilt, Button, a female under 1">
M ars of age. bad his case continued un
r il 7:30 this evening.
Susie and Martha Brigadier, young
colored women, charged with cruel
treatment to their children, were dis- j
missed with a reprimaud.
Night Remrt.?Last night was cloudy
and cool. Three prisoners were at the
station house.
Charged with ARDUCTiON.?Mr.
John Suttou a few days ago swore out
n warrant against Mr. Henry Simmons
charging him with abducting his fifteen- j
year-old daughter Ida for immoral pur?
poses. Mr. Sutton, who lives at the
extreme southern end of Lee street,
alleges that his daughter left bonw
early cue morning recently about
the hour Mr. Siunnous, who is'a water
man, started down the river in his
sloop : that his daughter was seen pass?
ing over the railroad bridge across
Hunting creek, presumably with the
Mtirpoite of being picked up by Mr. Sim?
mons further down the river. The lat?
ter was arrested this morning, but. in
the absence of material witnesses, the
case was continued until half-past sever,
o'clock to-uight, when the trial will
lake place in the Police Court.
Si'eamer Disabled.?The steamer
Columbia, of the Washington ferry line,
was laid up to-day, and the steamer
Waketield ' r?a iu her place. Much
complaint is made by persons in this
city who send aagoiis to Washington
of the fact both boats now running are
unable to carry teams, aud shippers are
compelled in many instances to wend
iheir vehicles over the road.
Preferred to Remain on the
Gang.?It will be remembered that
about, two weeks ago a negro man
named Tom Covington, who had been
arrested for disorderly conduct, played
the sheep trick in t he Police Court by
"hjibing" when asked to make an ex
I pl.tnniion of his conduct. It was sup?
posed he was mentally unsound, and
he was held for further examination.
This morning he was again brought into
couit when he appeared to be possessed
of intelligence euough to be allowed
his liberty with safety, and it had been
determined to release him, but, to the
surprise of all, he informed tbe court
that he preferred staying in jail and
working on tbe chain gang than taking
chances ot making a living in the
streets. He was sent back to stay the
remainder of his term.
An Amazon.?Officers Griffin and
Smith last night arrested a tall, power?
fully-built young colored woman named
Matilda Carter, charged with disorderly
conduct some time ago. The woman
tried to hide from the officers iu some
pea vines, but they soou found her, and
upou taking her into custody she fought
and endeavored in every way to es?
cape. It was found necessary to strike
her over the knuckles with a "billy" to
make her relax a hold she had on one
of the officers. After much trouble she
was landed in the station house, and
this moruiug she was fined ?5. Jeal?
ousy was the cause of the trouble. A
darkey female had lured her gay Lo?
thario* from her, which caused her to
become disorderly toward her rival.
Fight ox the Strand.?A row oc
cur red on the strand lust night between
two colored men named Henry Mun
son and Edward Graysou shortly after
tbe Norfolk steamer left her wharf.
The trouble originated while the men
were engaged iu loadiog the steamer.
Grayson, it seems, used some threaten?
ing language toward Munson, with
whom he had bad a difficulty sometime
ago, when Munson cut at him, split?
ting bis sleeve and cutting the little
linger of his right haud. Grayson then
picked up bricks and stood on the de?
fensive, when bystanders interfered,
and he concluded to get out a warrant
for his assailant. Muusou was lined $?">
this morning.
Baby Carriage Thief.?A baby
carriage belonging to Mr. Robert
Knight was stolen from the front of bia
mother-in-law's residence, on south St.
Asaph street, this afternoon. The car?
riage had been temporarily left on the
pavement by Mrs. Knight and upon her
return, for the purpose of placing her
child in it, she discovered it had been
stolen. A negro boy named Jenkins,
who was sent to the penitentiary
last moutli, stole a baby carriage in this
city on one occasion and cut the top
from it in order to convert it into a
wagon. It is hoped he has left no suc?
cessor hereabouts.
Anxious to Come Back.?Mr. Jos.
Specht, of St. Louis, has been in Wash?
ington for several days, presumably for
the purpo.se of patchiug up a reconcili?
ation between himself and wife, who
some time ago filed a petition for a di?
vorce, and to take further steps against
Dr. Gran by Howard, who is charged
with securing money from Mrs. Specht
under falses pretenses. Howard, who
is in Canada, is said to be ready to
come homo and face the charges against
him, but is unable to do so on account
of the lack of funds.
G A r u en Tin e v es.?Considerabl e
complaint is made by householders of
the fact that their grape vines and fruit
trees are robbed by mischievous ur?
chins. It is an ordinary occurrence for
housekeepers who may be temporarily
called from their homes to find upou
their return thnt their premises have
been entered and despoiled of fruit
during their absence. Many arc keep?
ing strict watch and should the depre?
dators be caught they will be made to
pay for their thieving.
Assaulted.?Frederick Plitt, who
lives in Alexandria county, was attack?
ed by two men on ^huter's hijl road
about half-past eleven o'clock last
night. Mr. Plitt struck one of his as?
sailants over the head with his caue
and afterwards ran back to this city.
He reported the matter at police head
quarters, and Officers Sherwood and
Howsou accompanied him to his home.
Rill SlGSEf).?The President to-day
signed the bill allowing the Washing?
ton, Alexandria and Mount Yernou
Railway Company the use of certain
streets in Washington. Work will be
commenced ou the road between this
city and Washington as quickly a3
possiblf, and an electric railway be?
tween the two cities is uow an assured
fact.
Colored Baptist; Association.?
The third day's session of this associa?
tion commenced this morning. After
the usual opening exercises the associa?
tion took up routine business. The
finance committee reported ^"i!)7 77 re?
ceipts and expenditures $438 50. Sev?
eral visiting ministers were introduced.
The association will adjourn to-uight.
Burning the Garbage.?A fire was
slutted yesterday in the rubbish, de?
cayed fruit, A.c , which has from time
to time- been dumped at the foot of
Windmill Hill, and it is earnestly
hoped it will be contiuued until that
< place is purified.
Marvelous Results.

TRUSTEE'S SALE CONTINUED
At Pretzfelder & Co.'s, 530 King Si.
Another word to the good people of Alex?
andria. To those who were wise enough to give
ua a call and to inspect the offerings we have
been mating for the last few weeks, it is need?
less for us to say anything in the way of ex?
planation of what we arc doing. Our bar?
gains are more convincing than columns of
argument and our prices more eloquent than
mere words. But to those who are shy and
backward, and who are suspicions of "sales"
gotten up now ai.d then by merchants to boom
business, we desire to say a few words to-day.
Iu the first place wo want you to under?
stand that this is no "fake" selling out. It
isu't dono for pleasure, aud it isn't done for
prufit. Stem necessity caused the iustitutiou
of this sale. Stern necessity fixed tho prices.
Stem necessity again demands a cut in pi ices
regardless of the value, cost and desirability
of the Goods, Wares aud Merchandise we have
still on band
Tho law says that this estate must be speed?
ily wound up, and wind up is the word even
,-f wo have to practically give the goods awav.
Now, if wo have convinced you that this is
a bona fido clearing out, and havo gained
enough of your confidence to havo you be?
lieve that our object is to get rid of the goods
we have at any prices, we will, for the pur?
pose of convincing thoso who have uot visited
our MAMMOTH SLAUGHTER SALE that
wo offer the bargains of a life-time, quote
some prices we have made on popular and de?
sirable goods. Figures, we know, don't lie. so
we will let them speak for themselves. Look
over our list carefully, and if you see anything
you want, cut out tho advertisement, and put
you finger on tho article aud come to us, and
you will got the stuff exactly as advertised.
To our numerous friends who have been in to
sec us so ofteu lately, we desire to say only
that this picnic can't last much longer. Make
hay while the sun shines. Our loss is your
gain. A word to the wise is sufficient.
Watch our figures. Here goes:

Space will not permit further numeration
in this advertisement.
After perusing tho prices given above, can
any ono candidly say that we aro not ready to
make good any promise we have made? Why,
we could sell to shop keepers at these'prices;
but we prefer to give tho people tho 'benefit
of thif opportunity. Our unprecedented suc?
cess heretofore in this sale makes us anticipate
a very lively week after this great cut, and
we therefore advjso thoso who intend to take
advantage of it, to call early, so wo can give
them the bonellt of a better choico and better
attention. The wido-a-wake man and woman
aro tho persons who get along best now; and
they aro asleep to their own interests who
will pormit this chance to go by without so z
ing the opportunity to profit thereby.
