had Irtii nttarked with the Mitall-pox,
and wu lying at the point of death.
Ye-lerday wo li-.irned that the lady
died and wa burled fometwoweekago,
and that now a daughter, a young girl,
about fourteen year. or age, is confined
10 lier ImsI with the tmc disease, but that
there are lioH'S of her recovery.

indulged too freely in the tp-e of bad

near the corner of Fourteenth and Wal

determined that the other negro Mionld
give him tlieentlrc fldewalk, while negro
No. 2 had made up his mind to do no
sum thing. A good deal of talk followed,
then the larger negro, the one who
wanted the whole of the Mdewnlk, ad
vanced upon his table antagonist and
knocked him off the walk Into the mud
on hU back and that's till there was of It.

had purloined It. The oillcer had a war

Judge Bird, who, after hearing the tcMi-
monv of several wltucs-cs whom Paro
lee had brought up, held tliedcfcndent to
ball lu the sum of 300 to answer the
charge at the next term of the clreult
court. I.ouUa not being fortunate enough
to pio.-iire the required bail, went to the
county jail, where she will remain until
the time for Iter trial shall have arrived.

For months past, tills place has been
Infested with a gang of thieves, nnd
Mores, cellars and dwellings have been
entered and robbed of whatever might,
perchance, full under the observation of
the thieves, and tho guilty parties, to n
great measure, have- escaped being
brought to Justice. Last Friday, Burger,
tho dry goods man, on Commercial ave
nue, missed from his store u lot of blan
kets, eight in all, and was blind as to
their whereabouts. This fact ho reported
to the authorities, and Deputy Sheiill's
Coin and Shecliau were detailed to work
the matter til). About the same time,
Howie Brothers, pork packers, on Wash
Ington avenue, missed n lot of smoked
hams from their cellar, amounting to
about forty'dollars. This, too, was put
Into the hands of the nbovo named olli
ccrs, who Immediately set to work to fer
ret out tho thieves. From some cause,
the su.nleloiis of the olllcers were
directed to two colored men, both well
known in Ihls city as villlans, named
Charley Williams and Bob Anderson,
who were at oneo arrested and taken bo-
fore Judge Bross, who held them to bail
In the sum of live hundred dollars each,
to answer tho charge nt tlio next term of
tho circuit court. OlllccrSheehaii Informs
us that tlio blankets went recovered Irom
the two partle", nnd that a crock of but
ter which had been stolen by one of them
from the steamer Great ifepublle, while
that boat was lying at the wharf, was al
io recovered, but the hams have not yet
been found, though Williams and Ander
son are known to be the parties who stole
tlicni. Anderson I? one of tliu most des
perate desperadoes in thU county, lie has
already served three terms in the peni
tentiary at Juliet, ami Mauds the best
show in the world of going there once
more at least. Williams Is also wild to be
a bad citizen, having been Implicated lu
several villainous nets.
Ilittli from lriiy.
Ltut 1'riday niht an old iadv named
Sanderson, accompanied by her xon,
daughter-in-law and two grandchildren,
came to tills city on board the steamer
Cherokee, from New Orleans and had
intended to take (lie liljilit train at this
point for St. I.oui. where they reside,
but the old lady belli;; iinilcted with
dropy, felt very much latlgued, and the
son thinking that a little rel would re
fresh her and lit Iter for the remainder of
the Journey, procured room at the Ar
lington hnue, where the old lady was
token. Saturday morning they had pro
posed to re.Mime the trip, but llndlng that
his mother wos no better, the sju con
cluded to remain longer. The old lady
began to hlnk rapidly Saturday ntter
noon, and that nlg.it she died, and was
burled yesterday morning nt liecch (.rove
cemetery. The son and ills family left
on the two o'clock train yesterday after
noon for St. l.ouis.

-The Hidden
lu accordance with the exportation of
all, tlie wonderful play of ruder the
G:illght" brought out a very large and
appreciative audience last night. The
pi ty ini' evidently iicrformed according
to the Idea which pervaded the minds of
tlie entire aembly,el-e the many dem
on-trations of approval that were show
ered upon tlie actors would not have
found vent In tbeiiol-y clapping of hand-
and stamping of feet which the audience
so frequently Indulged in. .Mr. Ilnnchctt,
the manager ot the troupe, proxed, lu the
distribution of tlie characters lu tlie play
among ids people, how perfectly lie ttn-der-tands
the ability with whleli each is
endowed, for it seemed that they were
made to llll the places aligned th-lii, o
truly did they enact them.
The aetinir of Ml-s Price was ju?t what
it eer is excellent, being natural, spir
ited and effective. To say that shendded
new link to the chain of fame which
she has Iohl' ere this won, is but weak
praNc. And the soldier mou-engcr,
Snoiky, wa done by Pope inoit nobly.
He 1 one of the few men who hai taken
a strong hold on the theatre-going people,
because of his truthful Impersonation of
whatever character may fall into ids
keeping. That infernal old ra-eal, Byke,
in whom the author has concentrated ev
ery feature of which a villain of tlie
blackest dye is capable, was done by An
derson in llret-cl.iis style. Peacliblos-om
was satisfactorily enacted by Ml-s Ilnn
chctt, as indeed everything is that is cn
trusted to the care of this really deserv
ing youutr Iadv. Voorhecs' Bay Traflonl
irave the Mectators no room for crlti
cism. Bermudas, the sidewalk merchant,
was, as a matter ot course, Iieyond ques
tion. Ikcjiuso Tom Hampton hud that
part of the play in charge. Old Judas,
tlie counselor of Old Byke, was charac
terized by Mrs. Isabella Phillip, to per
fection. To-night we will be favored with the
"Hidden Hand," dramatized from Mrs.

Of Hiivcrly'MiiIiiMrcl.s, wliieh organi

tlie Chicago Timet says : "A little fun is
relished by the bct of men, and several
hundreds last night ut the Academy were
heartily amused by the performance of
llavcrly'rt MlnMreN. Since their visit here
earlier in the season, the troupe, which
even then was hard to beat, ha been reor
ganized, and several additions have been
made to It. whleli now places It par ex
cellence among the gentlemen of burnt
cork notoriety. UN unnecessary to speak
of those ol the troupe who visited Chicago
then, for their reputation iu their line Is
as laminar as iiouseuoui worus. .nr.
George- Wilson and Mr. Milt G. Barlow,
the end men, are two of the best delinea
tors of the negro character that we have
cverseeti. Tlicircoinlcalitlcs kept tlieau
dlcnco In convulsions ot laughter during
their entire performance. The Welling
brothers nnd Messrs. J. W. Freeth and
Tho. B. Dixon make the very best quar-
tcttooutho stage. Mr. Dixon, In his song
'Yon will never miss the water till the
well runs dry,' was n complete success,
nnd received loud and continued applause
until lie was forced to repeat It. Tin; clog
dancing of Mcssrr-. Primrose and West
could not have been excelled. We think
the management can well ntlbrd to offer,
as It does. S.100 a week to tho man who
can produce two better ones. Mr.JD
L, Morris, the Dutch comedian, a new
Iciituro since the troupe's last visit, was a
decided lilt, and created roars of laughter.
On the whole tills Is tlie best minstrel show
that has ever vMted Chicago. Their sal
lies of wit and puns are most of them en
tirely new, rich, raru ami racy."

the season in this climate. We have had
an extra large share of cold weather, but
