NEWS AND GOSSIP. Elopement of a New York Wife.
[From the Detroit Free Press, September 9]
A tolegrapbio dispatch was receivod by nflieer
Champ yesterday morning, requesting him to
apprehend a lady who was passing undor the
aBbunied name of Elvira King, and supposed to
bo residing iu this city. The dispatch was
from her husband, a Mr. David L. Hawkins,
of Now York city, and briefly stated that she
had eloped with & youog man, who was proba
bly in hor company, and might bo secured. It
was dated at Buffalo, and informed the officer
that tho writer would bo in Dotroit by the first
train, being on the way with all possible dis
patch. By a very imperfect description that
was appended, the ofUeor was furnished with
somo olue, and upon inquiry at the hotels, as
certained that nu such persons bad stopped at
any of the publio houses. Tho next roiortwas
the omnibus linos and publio backs, among
which, after much dilligonce, aoonvoyancewas
found which had taken such a couple to a dis
tant part of the city. Having carriod the mat
tor to this extent, ollieor Champ then awaited
tho arrival of tho husband, whocamo in, punc
tual toagroonient, on the noxt train.
He was a man of very gontlomany appear
ance and manners, und stated that he was a
inorchant and the possessor of a line property
and samplo income. They lived a few miles
abovs tho city, on the North River, where an
elegnnt residence and all the luxuries of life
contributed to make a happy home. His wife
was beautiful and accomplished, and, after five
years of wedded life, he believed himself the
possessor of all her afl'eotions, and in return
lavished upon her the wealth of an undivided
heart and a well-Clled purse. She was, indeed,
faithfnl, so far as outward observance was con
cerned, but in her hoart had conceivod a vlo
lont passion, or, rather, allowed herself to be
ovor-persuadod into an attachment for a young
man in bar hiuband's employment.
Tho partnor of her infidelity was a clork who
had always enjoyed tho conlidenno of Mr.
Hawkins a handsome, dashing fellow, who,
in the excrciso of full liberty to not as chaperon
to his fair lady at numerous hops, boat-rides,
pics and moonlight rambles on the roniantio
blufis overhanging the Hudson, had fallen in
Iovo, and, by his winning ways and seductive
pleading, so far provuilod over tho intelligent
mind and innate good sense of the lady as to
blind her to tho nature of the offonso and the
almost certain consequences. Tbo result was
an attachment which rendered the once pleasant
and nmch-Iovod borne irksome and unploasing.
The cbnrm was gone when chastity once de
parted, and an unsalisCod spirit drove thorn to
covot, with rash and reckless foeling, the ab
sence of all familiar objects. They desired to
bo nlono with each other.
Tho husband, overwhelmed with the lo tiuio -mi
nt so littlo expected and so slightly desorvod,
found means to traco thorn directly to this city.
Having told his story, ho was informed that
tho moans of recovering bis wife lay within
immediate roach, and having signilicd hid roadi
noss io procood, the officer sent for the convoy -anco
above alluded to, and dircctod tho drivor
to find tho place to which ho had taken the
lady and hor lovor. The sonsos of the un
willing Jehu wore sharponod by a gold onglo
from tho itnpationt husband, and in a short
time he drew up in front of a plain two-story
bouso on Congross-stroet, which bad the modest
sign of "boarding" on tbo front, and tho name
of Mrs. Martin on tho door. A hasty rap
brought tho girl to tho door, which was no
sooner opened than thobtisbaud pushed io, and
demanded to sec tho lady boarder. Ho was
told that tho wns tip sltiivs.
Tlio noisi) of eiitiaiic' nml talking alarmed
the lady, for they hud struck the right lend,
and us ho sprung up tho utairs she confronted
him at the tup, in dire astonishment and dis
may. There was a f- euo, u: there always is;
tho lady Ininliug, dying r.wuy into iimoiifii-
oiitty, anu awakening ugain to u tornblo re
ality, amid teai'3 and protestations. Tho
husband stood with folded arms, regarding
hor intently and with but few words, until
the paroxysm passed, and then quietly re
quested her to prepare for another journoy.
Sho waa compelled speedily to leave her
refuge and return homeward, which sho did
without a last word with her lover, who, per
haps fortunately for himself, was absent lrom
tho house, and did not meet tho husband
whom ho had wronged. Tho 'attor seemed
disinclined to gain a, Sicklos notoriety, and
made no effort to find him taking, perhaps,
tho wiserconrsc of tho two. They wont homo
last night.
Tins ldt,ANi) ot-' 8ax Jia.n. Tho Xew York
Rrprm, referring to this island, lately seized
by General Harney, remarks:
For eomo time past it is said to havo bocn
occupied by British subjects as a sheep pas
ture, for which it is suid to bo admirably
adapted. It is, somo Seventy thousand acres
in extent, aud covered, for tho most part,
with fine grass. The disputed ownership has
its origin in tho vaguo wording of tho Oregon
treaty, which provides that tho dividing line
separating the territories of tho two countries
shall "run westward with the forty-ninth
parallel to tho middle of tho Hull' of Geor
gia; thonco southward with the mam r.humil
to the Straits of Fttea, nnd through the mid
illo of tboso straits to tho occiin." It now
turns out, however, thut there are two "main
channels," tho Uosnrio Straits and the (.'anal
de Haro, and though the former is tho ouo
chielly used by vessels going to Frasor River,
tho latter is the widor. Between them lio ti
number of islands, the chief of which is S.in
Juan. Tho British claim that tho Ilosario
Strait is tho "main channel" referred to by
tho treaty, and if this be conceded it will
give them possession of tho intermediate
islands. Hut the American Commissioners
contond that, as tho Canal do ilaro is the
widest, so it is necessarily tho "main chau
uol," and by this rendering of the treaty tho
iblands in dispute become American terri
tory. This is the ease as it stands.
"HOOSIEKS, St.'CKKllS A.VO PuKKS." A Witty
friend of tho Now York Commi nial, who has
recently boon traveling through Indiana, Illi

"Tho first two and tho last nauiod States are
inhabited by queer specimens of tho ;rutn

very ancient, as I beliovo there is no work ex

a fair correct origin. From what I saw or
could learn of their habits, they subsist chiefly
on fat pork and corn dodgers, although I have
seen them masticating large quantities of a
dark and noxious woed, the juice of which I
suspect must bo poisonous, as tboy invariably
eject it. Their principal, und I was told only
bovomirs, is a distillation from corn, which
thoy call 'Burton.' A distinguished savant

Sons of Malta.
"Jcoms" was rocontly initiated into tbo
order of tbe Sons of Malta, and graphically
describes hit introduction into the "vale of
mystery" aj follows:
You are first grabbed and 'thrown Into a tub
of oold water, and forthwith several largo men
begin to stick pins into you. Hauling you out
of tho tub of water, thoy rush you into anchor
department, and now new men make a lungo
after you, dressed in disguise, and immediately
ooramenco pouring hot molasses into your hair
and boots. Meanwhilo, a stream of cold water
is .looded onto you, and a man dressed in
black thrusts a snuff-box in front of your nose,
ind all at once you begin to snooze vocifer
ously, and the eagor crowd begins to laugh
and hurrah. Shoving you furthor along, the
chief men and bottlo-wushors grab you by tho
nose, hair and coat-tail, and iu this way rip
every bit of dry goods loose from your person,
and again tho crowd roars with tumultuous
laughter it your nude state, with five or six
men holding on to your hair and toes, forcing
you up a soaped polo with pins and sharp
Bticks, You now begin to think you aro forsa
ken by all of Clod's people, and the devil has
certainly got possession of you, knocking you
on tho head so that you see stars as numerous
as they are in the milky-way. You are han
dled in this kind of tantalizing way for two
hoars, when the officers give yon a large dose
of liverwort and tar, and then let you go.
Fun!
Frost and Drouth im Mu kigax. A lcttor,
dated Kalamazoo, Michigan, Sept. .0, says:
Frost and drouth are making nail work
here. Wo havo had frost every month this
year, nnd throe sharp ones within a week,
which havo somewhat injured corn and
buckwhoat, but how much l ean not now say.
I never know anything like such a drouth ns
wo nro now having. During more thon uino
weeks of long days we havo hud but ono rain
that mado mud, nnd that did not thoroughly
wet potatoes in tho bill. The whole country
is like a desert; the fields are moro brown
than in tho dead of winter. Vegetation is
well-nigh sapless. Somo great troos are
turning yellow, and smaller trees aro dying
in great numbers, it is now time to sow
winter wheat, but furmcra any it is of no use,
as tho seed will not germinate, and will get
harm in the ground. Cuttle faro hnrd upon
tho burnt and desolated fields. Oh, for ruin.
Stiix Alive. Tho Cairo Gauitr has the
following characteristic item :
A paragraph is going tho rounds of tho press
in every direction to tho ofl'eet that a man by

ges ncard ol it, pursued and ovorimuled
Uaynos, and literally llayin;; him alive,
skinned him from hoad to foot! Of oourso ho

Frkk Schools in Ixdiana. The wholo num
ber of scholars in the State by the last enu
meration is 479,817. The estimated cost of
tuition for each scholar is, on an avorago, $4 25.
The school fund to be distributed this year is
esitmatod at $1,0011,000, or about $2 10 to the
scholar. Tbo attendance upon the schools
rarely exceeds more than sixty per cent, of the
wholo number entitled to education,so that the.:
number actually receiving tho benefits ol edu
cation seldom exceeds 230,00(1 pupils. Tho
cost per scholar is ostimatad upon the oxponses
of schools in towns and thickly populated dis
tricts. In regions sparsoly inhabilod, where
the number of scholars that can be brought
under tho char to of a single instructor is much
loss, the cost iirvjii(u is largor.

The Right Training of Women.
Tbo I'liiinhoj' Kn'jlaud Itcoiiw has an article
on female education, from which we tako tho
following passugo :
Much roniains to bo done in winnowing out
of people's minds ridiculous ideas of a certain
purely factitious stylo ot living, without whicn
it is impossible to keop bouse. There are
plenty ct young men who have yet to unlearn
tho foppery of expenses disproportioned to
their meaDi, and the sordid noss of luxuries
which feed, not self respect, but gluttony and
pride. Tho possibility must be seourod to
daughters and younger sisters growing up to
be rational, appreciative companions; girls
who, if they ever married, will choose and
valuo their husband for what be is, and be in
terosted in his calling and his opportunities for
observation; women who will estimato tbe
grave and sweot realities of wifo and mother
hood, beyond any accident of precedence or
superlluity. By dismissing false and foolish
notions of respectability, by refusing the cheap
lascinations ot a paltry education ot display,
by discountenancing restraints misdirected or
too rigorous; by cultivating an intelligent and
unassuming mode of intercourse, by a oarefal
forosight in assisting young people to prepare
themselves for the exertion and cost of one day
being tho center of a peaceful, hospitable home;
in those and other ways muoh may be dono to
remove obitructinns to that gradual acquaint
ance, and that unaffooted rospeot and attach
ment, which lead on to happy marriage.
In tho meantime it may be well to think,
with not only the sympathy, but the venora
tion they deserve, of many among those who
will nover marry ; to assist in multiplying the
too few occupations suitable to womon or open
to them; above all, not to preach by implica
tion or othorwiso that a woman's life need evor
be dwarfed to a negation, or consumed misera
bly awny by causes absolutely out of her con
trol. Thcro aro women strong enough to keop
their womanly dignity and sweetness, and to
organi.o around them the moral elements, at
all events, of an independent existence. Thoy
whose step3 aro feeblo need tbe more to be
helped, rather than hindered, in the struggle
with their fainter and moro yiolding self. If
they fail hero, is it at all certain thnt in wedded
life their lot would havo been auspicious?
Alas I how many a faltering will has bont and
"given" beneath sanguine, unfulfilled resolu
tions to reclaim and humanize the husband
who has pullod the wifo down instead to his
own moan and wrctohed level? Marriage is
not a lottery; but it is mere willful blindness to
forgot that in nil its higher aspects it may be
wilfully inverted or appallingly debased. Not
all tho grand provision of tender tioit and gra
cious instincts which Burround onoof the great
est of Bivino ordinances will uiuko peoplo puro
or happy who insist on being poovish or friv
olous, or worldly, sonsual and devilish.
Wedded life is a great and holy mystery,
and a source of power for good, often far boyond
estimation ; but unless thore bo at least one
soul filled with unsolQsb lovo, and strong in an
unllagging faith, tho formal union of two
persons is no guarantee whatovor for a will
ennobled or affections enlarged and eleansod.
And tho faith which so works by love can
make a sunshine in a shady placo, without nn
Infant's or a husband's oye to look into. Tbo
harmonics of a dovelopcl and transfigured
womanhood have been set many a time to
other music than that of wedding bells. Sbo
who is enthroned never, under any roof, in a
mother's hoi;' sovereignty, may earn hor right
in many a liou.e of compelling ovory soul to
lovo hor. Shu will create or Cad un atmos
phere in which to koop, imwilherod and in full
pulsiilion, "tins heart out of which aro tho
issues of life." Hor hands will redeem tho
time, ami her brain not bo idlo. Living singly,
yet not solitary, when sho dies it will not bo
till "fuioto," by niuuy a, UU'-.h of gratitude, and
eheort'ul, rovorontial sympathy, "tbe chord of
self h:is, trctnbliDg, passed iu musio out of
sight."
The Mormon Women.
Mr. Orooloy, in a letter, says : " I havo en
joyed opportunities for visiting Mormons, and
studying Moruiotiisui, in tho homos of its
votaries, and of discussing with thoui what tho
outside world regards as its distinguishing fea
turo, in the frcoilom of friendly social intor
courso. Iu ono instance, a veteran apostle of
the faith, having first introduced to mo a
worthy matron, of fifty-livo or sixty the wifo of
his youth, and tho mother of his grown up
s ,ns as Mrs. T. soon aftor introduced a young
and winning lady of perhnps twenty-five sum
mors, in tboso words, "Here is another Mrs;
T." Thi lady is a rocont emigrant from our
btato, of moro than average powers of mind
and graces of porson, who oauio here with her
brothsr, us a convert, a littlo over a year ago,
and has beon tho sixth wifo of Mr. T. since a
few weeks aftor hor arrival. (Tho intermediate
four wivea of Elder T. Iivo on a farm or farms
somo miles distant.) The manner of the hus
band was perfectly unconstrained and off-hand
throughout ; but I could not well be mistaken
iu uiy conviction that both Indios failed to con
ceal dissatisfaction with their position in the
eyes of their visitor, nnd of the world. Thoy
seemed to foci that it needed vindication.
Their manner toward each other was cordial
and sisterly sinocroly so, I doubt not but
this is by no means the rulo. A (iontilo friond,
whose duties require him to travel widely ovor
tho Territory informs met hat ho has repeatedly
stopped with a Bishop some hundred niilos
south ot) this, whoso two wives he has nevor
known to addross each other or evince the
slichtest oordiality during the hours ho has
spent in their society. Tho Bishop's house
consists of two rooms ; and when my informant
staid thero with a Gentile friend, the Bishop
boinu absent, one wilo slept in tbe tame apart
ment with thorn rather than in that occupied
by hor double I presume that an extreme
case, but tho spirit which impels it is not unu
sual. I met this evening a largo party
young people, consisting iu noarly equal num
bers of husbands und wives; but no husband
was attended by moro than ono wife, and no
gentleman admitted or iuiplied.in our repeated
und animated discussions of polygamy, that ho
bad moro than ouo nife. And I was again
fdruck by the circumstances that horo, as here
tofore, no wouinu indicated, by word or look,
her approval of any nrgutuont in fuvor of po
lygamy. That many womon acquiosce in it as an
ordinance of God, and have been drilled into
a mechanical assent to tho logic by whioh it
upheld, I believe; hut that there is not
woman in Utah who doos not in the hoart wish
that Uod had not ordained it, I am confident.
And quito n number of the young mon treat
in conversation as a temporary or experimental
arrangement, which is to ba sustained or put
aside as an experience shall demonstrate
utility or mischief. One old Mormon farmer,
with whom I discussed tho mattor privately,
admitted that it was impossiblo for a poor
working man to have a Woll-urderod, woll
govorncd household, whoro his children had
two or mote mothers occupying tho samo or
dinary dwelling. On tho wholo, I concludo
that polygamy, as it was a graft on tho orig
inal stock of Mormoni'in, will bo outlived by
tho root that thero will be a new revelation,
ero many years, wlioroby tho saints will
admonishod to lovo and cherish the wives they
already havo, but not to marry any more
beyond the natural assignment of ouo wife
each husband."
