Killed his Own Hens.
Old Col. Higgiris owned a flock of hns,
which he was very easeful to keep shut up
during the plaiting season, and his wile
wonlrf let them out occasionly to enjoy
"tbemselvei In the garden. The Colonel
eeing them in the garden one day, sup
posed, of course, they belonged to his
neighbor; and greatly enraged at the des-trucrkm-of-his
property, he seized his old
musket and blazed away t them, and sent
a lad with the dead ckickens to his neigh
bor's , house, with a message couched in
language rather more forcible than polite.
The next day the operation was repeated,
and so on for several days, and tho Colo
nel was greatly astonished at his ncigh
iat'i silence and good -nature, be never
sent back any more than very polite thanks
for the "gift," as he expressed it. "Well, H
so happened that the Colonel went to took

for awhile, the reason v for his neighbor's

CLEVELAND LEADER COMPANY.
J j LARGEST PAPKK IN THE CITT.
TPURSUAY, OCTOBER 26, 1865.
the prince of roma lifers: -All improbable,
iuiu u.iu e.virBvngant-stones nave cecn
referred to iiio, just aiJgJIillcr has been
made rcsponbible fur all the jojkes. and wit
icisnis, good, bad, and indifferent, of the
present century. But the distinguished
Baruiihas western and model rivals, before
whom he must "pale his intellectual fires."
His occupation is gone. Those Dromios
of the daily Democratic press, the Cleve.
land Plain Dealer and the Cincinnati En
quirer bave assumed it, and their recent
efforts as far excel Munchausen as Mun
chausen stirpassesjill common liars.
The latest illustration of the powers of
these papers is afforded by a story which
appeared in the ' Emtuirer of Monday
morning, and the Plain Dealer o( Monday
afternoon. Both these pnpers, with Sin
gular and significant unanimity, announce
that the Cabinet of President Johnson
will soon be radically reconstructed. Of
course it is by no means remarkable that
papers so enthusiastic in the support of
the President, and so intimately in his
confidence, should receive exclusive infor
mation of this fact, or that they alone
should be informed as to the names of the
new Sebretaries. , Therefore we are not at
all surprised to find the whole Presiden
tial programme accommodatingly laid
before us by the genial scribes of the En
quirer and Plain Dealer. . According to
the former site et we quote first from it
as least startling the- gentleman selected
for the position of Secretary of "War, is
no less a person than the Democratic nom
inee for President iu 18G4, and the man
who subsequently predicted the annihila
tion of Sherman in ' his march through
Georgia. A splendid successor, he. to
Edwin M. Stanton ! Tom. Plorenee, of
Philadelphia, a copperhead of the most
malignant type, is the favored man who
will relieve Mr. "Welles of the navy port-
foliOj while Montgomery Blair, according
to our veracious authority, will resume
control of the postal department. .
This is well enough for a beginning, but
the northern rival of the Enquirer, the
Plain Dealer, so far outstrips it that we
forget the first roorback in wandering
over the magnificent proportions of the
second. The Plain Dealer corroborates
the story as far as it relates to MeClellan
and Florence, but assigns Blair to the In
terior Department, and promotes Charles
Beeniclin, the most virulent Copperhead,
after Vallandigham, in Ohio, to the Post
Master General ship. Horatio Seymour
(!) and Charles O'Conor (!!) are suggested
for Secretary of State "and Attorney Gen
eral, while it is uncertain whether Bobert
J. "Walker or James Guthrie shall oust
McCulloch from the Treasury building.
"We have but one objection to this Dem
ocratic programme. It is sectionul, while
that great party of the past and the future,
and all tcrises but the present, is eminently
national. Worse than this, it is Northern,
while under the " Union as it was '' the
fattest offices, and the richest stealings
were at the disposal of the South. How
easily all this might have been mended
How easily, for . example, might
Jefferson Davis : have ; been assigned
to the Secretary-ship of State I "Wade
Hampton or Lee would do M excellent
well" for Secretary of "War, and wouldntt
Admiral Raphael Sommes, or that gallant
relic of rebellion' who sails the Shenan
doah, make an unsurpassabla Secretary of
the' Kayy ? Judith P. Henjumirt woulj
the ideal Attorney General in the eyes of
Xorthern Copperhead. This arrange
ment, with Captain' Wirz in soma snug
sinecure, and Breckinridge or Beauregard
iu Grant's shoes, would perhaps satisfy
"our Southern brethren," and Seymour,
O'Conor, Yallandighamj & Co., might fill
the background of this cabinet picture.
This arrangement of tho slate would be
just about as probable and practicable as
the other, and we wonder that our ambi
tious cotcmporaries did not make it.
The Virginia Congressional Election.
The latest returns from the Virginia
election, as reported in the Kew York
papers, confirm the predictions of the
Leader of Saturday in regard to the suo-
ccsful candidates. In the 10th District, in
which reports have been received from all
the counties except Fluvanna, Ridge way
majority is 2,225. In the 1st District,
"William H. B. Custis of Accomac is re
ported to have a large majo? ity. In the
lid District, Chandler was, according
the latest accounts, 534 ahead of Millson
and is said to have been elected beyond
doubt. In the Vth District, in which five
counties, are not yet reported, Stuart's ma
jority is thus far 1,757. The . Vllth Dis
trict, in which Fairfax, Fauquier and "War
ren still remain to "be heard from, gives
Conrad a majority so far of 2,300. The
result in the VHIth District is still in
doubt. The 6ix counties from which offi
cial majorities have been received give Dr.
Stdvall 54 majority; but of the two coun
ties not fully heard from, Patrick is report
ed to have given a majority for -Davis,
who may yet be elected. Custis, Chand
ler and Ridgeway can take the Congres
sional oath; Conrad cannot, and Davis is
likely to be in the same condition, as he is
a Southern Methodist minister. Altogether
it seems now to bo certain that Virginia
sends to Congress five members who can,
and three who cannot, take the oath.
The Mississippi Senators.
We are 6orry for the sake of Mississippi
that her legislature- neutralized whatever
good impression they may have produced
at the North by elcctingGovernorSharkey
to the United States Senate, by choosing
J. 8, Alcorn as his colleague. If the sim.
i!e . were not worn out, "we should liken
Governor Sharkey to the living man
chained to the dead corpse, of which Taci
tus tells us but we forbear. The only
thing that this new-fledged Senator has
done to 6eciire"li'rfi ""eminence was to com
mand a brigade in the rebel army, and the
only j political opinion which has given
him prominence is his opposition to negro
testimony 'in the cotrrts. Tha action of the
legislature in electing him, shows its dis
position, and proves "that thair choice
of Sharkey was Tather, the result of his
personal popularity than an endorsement
of his positidnorl'ttie subject of negro tes--
' tartif i-S. t. '
Miiiuuy. . tt iui Bucii a coinjiaiiion . even

matter to pass the doors of the United

Got. James L. Orr.hasbeen chosen Gov
ernor of South Carolina the first ever
elected by a .popular vote.. Colonel Orr,
like Provisional Governor Perry, hails
from the upland portion of the State, and
did good; service against Secession in

THE DEVELOPMENT OF RENO.
Further Details of the Plan.
Further Details of the Plan. [Special Correspondence of the Cleveland LEADER.]
MEADVILLE, October 23, 1865.
I hav:e given jrou the outlines of the ex
cursion of last week, hastening rapidly
over the route traversed, and glancing,
merely, at the points of interest. There
were many things deserving of more par
ticular mention which the necessary brev
ity of a newspaper letter compels one to
omit entirely. The growth of the Pithole
region was the wonder of the trip to thoe
whose previous knowledge was confined
to newspaper reports. Here was a city of
from 8,000 to 10,000 inhabitants, with not
less than 12,000 persons depending upon its
Post-office for their mail, the number of
buildings in the city being about 780, and
yet the first lease for building purposes
nponjthe site of the present city was
granted upon the 3d day of June last, only
four months and a half ago. ' The party
was entertained in a hotel not less than
two hundred feet in length, lighted through
out with gas, and soon to be heated with
steam, and this was but a sample of some
half a dozen similar structures. In every
thing except its streets, Pithole City de
serves the latter part -of its name; in that
one respect," "the former' portion if the
most aptly descriptive. Tho streets and
side walks are one pitholo of mud and
mire, save where arailinghas been erected
at a certain distance from the nullum;
fronts, the enclosed space boing, by a sar
castic fiction, called sidewalks. , As
platoon of our cavalcade filed inside one
of these railings we were hailed by i
Pitholer who stood in the door way, "say
you, don't Tide on the side walk or ycull
cut it all up." Considering that our horses
were half way deep in mud at the time,
we marked the chap as a facetious youth
who had "got sarcasm into him."
i About a mile from -Plumer, upon the
rond side, stood the plain two story, white
dwelling of the Prather family, where
they lived before they became famous
the purchasers of the Holmden farm.
whose re-sale has put millions into their
pockets, unless pending litigation should
vitiate tho second sale which they made.
Mr. George Prather, who haa purchased
the Ambler place upon Euclid road for his
mother aud sisters, is a quiet unassuming
young man who very favorably impresses
those with whom ho comes in contact.
The roads from Pithole to Plumer were
deoidedlvbad: those from Plumer to Hum.
boldt works quite good: thence to Rou.se-
ville wretched; from Rouseville to Oil
City ditto; from Oil City to Reno good.
There were a few sore-hearted and sore
bodied ones who eschewed horses after
the first day, and yearned after spring
' wagons. Among them was one journal
ist who did not keep up the credit of the
craft tor pluck ana "stick-to-it-ivcness;
but blamed the committee of invitation
because the roads to Pithole were not
easy of transit as those from Newbury,
port to Boston. For the- further accom
modation of this class the committee
courteously furnished wagons in which
make tho balance ot tue trip, but my
word for it they fared worse m wagon
ing than they would astride the hardest
jade, which the oil country affords.
As I have said, the road from Oil City
to Keno was very good, ana advantage
was taken of it to close up the column
As we struck the splendid road-bed of the
main street of Reno, one after another
struck into a gallop, and we charged
through the town as much like Sheridan
or Kilpatrick's raiders as Home-guard6
could be expected to look. 1 bunder-
incr thus down upon the Hotel it was
surrounded and captured in an instant,
and the objective point of the expedition
I gave you an outline of the Man under
which Mr. Culver proposes to develop the
oil territory in this vicinity. He reasoned
the matter so clearly, and, withal, so hon
estly (as no listener, could doubt) that
success of the enterprise could not but
conceded. Mr. Culver has been in this
region for years ; he came with the express
purpose of studying the needs and the op
portunities ot this district, and determin
ing upon the most advantageous points
tor trade. He showed the natural advan
tages of Reno in respect to transportation,
to convenience of access to all parts of the
oil country, and to manufacturing and
tarnishing supplies tor this entire region.
Ho then unfolded his plan of organization
of the Reno Oil Company. One point
this plan is important to be borne in mind:
the depositing of the funds subscribed
stock binds Mr. Culver to the success of th
development of the property, and the pay
ment of dividends to the stockholders, inas
much as his profits depend upon the non
redemption of the stock. This is a fcaturo
never introduced into any company or
ganization bclore this one.
A few words in regard to the develop
ment of the town of Reno. The advan
tages for shipping and transferring oil
this point are inducing those buyers
Cleveland refineries who have hitherto
made Franklin their headquarters to go
Reno instead. This will give a dailyship
ment of from 1,500 to 2,000 barrels oil per
day to Cleveland alone. This, being the
point tx) wnicn on is named by teams
well as boats, gives employment to black
smiths, mechanics, eating-houses and feed-
stores. A hue brick passenger house
being erected by the A. & G. W. Railway
Company. The printing office is nearly
completed, from which not less than 25,-
000 copies per week ot the Keno Times
will be issued to all parts of the country.
As fast as accommodation can be found
for the workmen, the force of mechanics
will be increased and business blocks and
dwellings will.be erected for rent. It
Mr. Culver's intention to erect a spacious
school building and endow the school with
not less than 25,000 to ensure its posses
sion of all needful accessories. A church
for common use will also be erected as
soon as possible. In short, every honora
blo branch of trade or profession will be
encouraged here. It is needless to say
that drinking saloons, gambling dens or
houses of prostitution are not included and
will not be tolerated within the limits
The railroad from Reno to Pitholo, by
way -of . Oil Creek and Rouseville i is
already commenced, about four kundred
hands being now at work upon it. The
Presidency of this road will be in the
hands of no less a person than Gen. A. E.
Burnside, whose railroad experience has
made him as famous in peace as in war.
Gen. Burnside will be here upon the
ground this week. A large addi tional
torce of laborers is on the wav, and it is
the intention to have not less than two
thousand hands at work as fast as they can
be transported to this point C. V. Cul
ver and A. E. Burnside are not the men
to let a work of this kind drag, when once
tthsy have put their hands to the plow.
Did 1 tell you ot the pleasant surprise
host Taylor had for the excursionists when
they returned to Meadville. He had ihe
large dining hall cleared and decorated,
and the party invited to join in a social
dance, to which the young ladies of the
place - lent tnoir attractions., xt was a
pleasing termination to a trip of uninter
pleasure and profit. S. D. P.
Tho.obligation to pay a debt of gratitude
rests on the same foundation with the obli
gation of a sealed bond. The nation is
bound to reward the Colored Men for their
fidelity and their services during the war.
W bat parricidal hand shall dare to first
lift the death's-head standard of Repudia
tion in tho United States, by denying to
the Colored Unionists of the South free
dom and the social and political power to
protect themselves in the enjoyment of
their Ircedom jv. r, u rioune.
Delaware has some fine laws. A negro
soldier, who has been to the front fighting
the rebels, lately returned to his home ih
that State, proudly bringing his gun with
hira. 1 He was brought before a magistrate,
fined and deprived of his gun. for trans
gressing a law of the State, which pro
vided that - no. negro shall be allowed to
have a gun. '

PITHOLE CITY, Oct. 19, 1865.
Pithole City must be seen to be believed-
It is mainly located in the old fields of the
Holmden Farm, upon an elevated and
crowning bank of Pithole Creek. Mr. Pra
ther, one of the late proprietors of the
farm, informed us that he made the first
lease the 11th of June, 1865 that the
buildings of various kinds already exceed
one thousand -and that at least twelve
thousand people now get their letters at
Pitholo City Post Office I The two prin
cipal streets are quite compactly built up,
many , of the hotels, stores, restaurants,
billiard saloons, livery stables, etc, large
and showy, and all of wood. There are
no cellars or fences yet in Pithole, but few
chimnics, and except platforms in front of
buildings, no sidewalks. Water is scarce
save in mudholes, and a fire once
raging would sweep away the tinder-
box town. Streets are of reason
able width, but mere beds of mortar and
boulders from side to side, go where you
will. The stores and shops are well filled
with goods hotels, saloons and shanties
with people and streets with teams and
equestrians. On adjacent hills and farms
tho city suburbs are already extending.
Of four months growth away from rail
roads or other facilities of travel or transit
of property except the primitively old-
fashioned over highways and through by
ways most execrable Pitholo is the mar
vel of marvels, the born giant of industry,
enterprise and energy. But its founda
tion is oil and oil only. Dried up wells
dries up Pithole; yet the petroleum
multitude invest their thousands and mil
lions as freely as if certain that the newly
found channels of sudden wealth would
never become dry andjlusty. The many
thousand abandoned derricks in Venango
County are unheeded monitors in the haste
hnd waste to get rich.
Following the principal street down to
Pithole Creek, derricks and engines be
come mixed with business buildings, and
a big sign of ,"No smokIno allowed"
stretches across. The valley, deep and
narrow, is now the great oil centre of ac
tivity and speculation. The wholo forest
for a mile or more is filled with gas and
grease pumping wells, flowing wells,
wens being tested, and wells being bored.
lo give the excursionists opportunity to
to see tne Diggest ot tne wonders, steps
and platforms had been erected at the
; tanks of the great spouters. Petroleum
pours constantly from pipes of various
sizes at the difierent flowing wells, ac
cording to copiousness of yield, the lar
gest pipe being two inches in diameter.
From this the oil is ' thrown by
gas with the force of water from
the nozzle of a steam fire engine. - At
regular intervals of a few seconds the volume
is increased with a wheezv Round nn
if by the breathing of Earth.- Tlie surface of
the nearly full tank is much agitated by
the stream of apparently boiling petro
leum, but a test with the hand shows that
the temperature is very low, and it is
stated that at some of the wells particles of
ice nave come up wun tne mixed water
ana oil. Iras steams up pungently from
the tanks, and inflammable asirunnowder.
To guard against explosions the tanks of
tne nowing wells are either housed or pro
tected by a railing at some distance, bear
ing frequent warnings of "No Smoking."
Despite every precaution two disastrous
fires have already occurred at the . Pithole,
liivotvtnu; jrvut Uvsu:ui;Uuii.ui:fir4
erty and three lives. The great Grant well
was destroyed but a few days ago, and
an acre of tanks and wells burned over.
Within two days the Grant tanks were
rebuilt, the other damages repaired, and
the well yielding as before the fire. New
derricks, efce., now cover the burnt district,
the scorched trees being about the only
trace left of the disaster. Such is Pithole
energy. Where the necessary materials
and men are obtained, puzzles outsiders.
It is estimated that the wells on the
Holmden Farm alone yield daily over
six thousand barels. The present pfo-
auciion is stated as iollows

The Messrs. Prather and Duncan pur
chased the farm about the time oil Was
found upon It for twenty-five thousand
dollars, and recently sold it to Messrs.
Wright and Chittenden, of Chicago, for
one and a half millions. Itsoresent vield
of oil is worth about forty thousand dol
lars per day, giving an annual income of
over iourteen millions, should the fountain
holdout, lime alone will settle the im
portant question. That they are likely to
more than get their money back, and
quickly, too, is shown by the fact that no
less than one hundred and twelve wells are
either flowing, pumping, being tested, or
being put down, at this time, on the Holm
den Farm, There are yielding wells and
borings going on upon three or four adja
cent farms. Two, expected to be flowing,
are reported struck on the Morey to-day.
On the Rooker Farm one well flows 700
barrels a dav, another 300, and two others
200 each, the Pithole wells are generally
about 700 feet in depth, the oil lighter than
that of Oil Creek, being rated 46, and sells
for about six dollars a barrel at the tanks.
It costs three dollars h barrel to get it
hauled to the Oil Creek railroad, some six
or seven miles. Teams make one trip a day
with loads of five barrels each.
To cheapen and facilitate the transit of
the fast accumulating stores of Pithole has
taxed ingenuity and enterprise. Two iron
pipes have just been laid connecting the
oil tanks with railroad and water convey
ance, and are in successful operation.
The first, in which Messrs. Charles Hea-
cox and C. W. Noble, of Cleveland, are
nterestcd, leads straight over the hills
fromthe Holmden Farm to the Miller
Farm, a distance of six miles. The nine
is two men bore, made ot , wrought
iron weiaea, screwed , at tne joints,
and now lies above the surface.
An engine forces the oil out of Pithole
valfey, and two stationary engines on the
line overcome other elevations and deliver
the oil at the rate of two thousand barrels
a day at the Oil Creek railroad station.
There is no waste of oil by leakage, though
it took some two hundred and fifty barrels
to grease the pipe. : It is to be put under
ground before winter. Cost of the enter
prise some $20,000, and it bids fair to be a
rich source of revenue. . Another pipe of
he same size has been laid from the Book
er Farm to McCrea's Landing, on the Al
leghany Bivor. .'.-! "...
But the great pipe of Pithole is now be
ing laid down the Creek to Oleopolis at
its confluence with the Alleghany. . The
project originated with T. C. Bates, of
Rochester, N. Y and is being carried out
by the Pennsylvania Tubing Transporta
tion (Jompauy, ol which lion. Joseph
Casey, of Washington, Chief Justice of tne
Court of Claims, is President. The pipe is
six inch cast iron, is laid at a minimum
depth of two and a half feet below the
surface, with a continuous down- grade;
the fall of the pipe being about fifty-five
feet to the mile, or three hundred and
thirty feet from the wells to the mouth of
the creek. Its capacity is estimated at
from six to ten thousand barrels a day. Of
its advantages the projector says: "It
will eat no oats, burn no fuel, and be run
by an immutable law of the Creator."
About two-thirds the distance is laid,
and if the tube don't leak it will be a "big
thing." Iron talks are being erected at
Oleopolis one eighty Ret in diametor ,
and fifteen thousand , barrels capacity.

J. A. H.
Beauregard, Jordan and the Harpers
—An Interesting Correspondence.
The following appears in the New Or
leans rieayune. the article referred to
being General Jordan's criticism of Jeff.
Davis, the material parts of which were
recently published in the Leader:
"General Jordan's article in Harper's
Magazine on the subject of the late Con-
lederate administration has provoked
good deal of criticism on the part of a
large number of persons, who think that
it was extreme! v untimed and unirtnerous.
General Beauregard's name has been con
nected, as if he had been in some mar ner
responsible for General Jordan's opinions,
and the manner and time for expressing
them. Nothing could be more erroneous.
On the contrary General Beauregard, on
reading the proof-sheets of the article
(which had been sent him), immediately
wrote to General Jordan in order to dis
suade him from inakinp- it public, at least
at this time; and fearing that his letter
might not reach its destination in time, he
wrote to the Harpers, requesting them to
deter the publication of the article until
they could hear trom General Jordan,
i The following is General Beauregard's
" New Orleans, September 2, 1865.
"Dear Sir: I received a few days since
from General Thomas Jordan the proof
sheets of an article entitled 'Jefferson Da
vis,' which is to appear in the October
number of your magazine. I have writ
ten to hira, requesting him not to publish
it at this present moment when Mr. Davis
is a close prisoner in a fortress, but fearing
General Jordan may not receive my letter
in time, I take the liberty of writing to
youdirect, in the hope that the publica
tion oi that article may be delayed at
least until Mr. Davis shall have been lib
erated, in order to afford him the oppor
tunity of defending himself, should he
think proper to do so.
"I am far from being one of the admir
ers or proselytes of Jefferson Davis ; in
deed, l might have many things to say
against his mismanagement of our national
anairs wnue ne was our Uhiet .Magistrate,
but we should never strike at a fallen foe
when incapable of opposing any resistance.

official acts are certuinly proper subjects
for discussion at any time, here or else

General Jordon upon all points, I yet
thought it every way desirable that the
views of a man who had special opportun
ities ofjudging should be presented to the
public. As far as 1 can judge from pretty
extensive conversations with men who
acted conspicuous parts against u during

General Banks on Reconstruction.
General Banks is reported to have ex
pressed his views on reconstruction as fol
lows, in a recent speech :
In speaking of the guarantees which
should be required ot the rebel btates,
General Banks said they should not be
paper guarantees, such as oaths of alle
giance, proclamations aud resolutions ;
but practical guarantees, growing out of
the nature oi things, and relorming the
political conditions of their society. First,
as to the adulissiofi cf States, the conse-
duences were too grave to receive all of
them at one time. Xho border States
might be admitted first, and the others al
lowed to follow when disposed to conform
to the required conditions. It was the du
ty of the government to secure the politi
cal control of the rebel States to the loyal
people, no matter how small that element
might he. Suffrage should be given with
out delay to the colored men in those
States and elsewhere. This was a ques
tion not to be avoided, and the privilege
could not long be denied by the South,
dopendent as they must be on the labor of
four millions of freedmen. While he
would not admit the rebel States without
their bestowal of this privilege, he would
not admit them solely because they might
grant it, because it alone was not enough
to guarantee safety. To make it valuable
to the freedmen it must be accompanied
by other measures. Another guarantee to
be required Was the exclusion of paroled
prisoners from all political rights until by
the personal investigation of the Presi
dent in each case it should be found that
they could be trusted. Preparations
should also be made to extinguish the na
tional debt, and to this end a constitutional
amendment should be adopted, giving
power to lay a duty on boutnern exports,
the revenue to be applied solely to the
payment ot the debt.
The Spot on the Sun.
[London Correspondence Chicago Tribune.]
Very important in connection with the
blight which the dry burning September
has cast upon man and beast, may be the
big spot on the sun, now visible to the
naked eye at sunset, which tiad, on Sep
tember 28th, a black nucleus 9,000 miles
m length, and a penumbra of 29,000 miles,
and which between : September 28th and
October 2d, according to the Bev. Astron
omer, W. R. Dawes, rotated on its centre
30 degrees. Sir Frederick Brodie, F. R.
A. &., writes that during the great mag
netic storm which occurred during the
laying down of tho Atlantic telegraph
eable "a very remarkable group of spots
broke out in the sun's photosphere, and
the termination of this storm about coin
cided with the disappearance of this group
from the sun's diso. It is well known that
the disturbances on the sun are intimately
connected with the magnetic forces on the
earth. On this occasion the group con
sisted of about fourteen spots or umbra,
all included in one penumbra ; the great
est length of this penumbra was rather
more than 50,000 miles."

Charles Reade's Drama of " Never too
Late to Jlend " is not as popular as his
novel of that name. At the Princess,
Theatre in London, it received most em
phatic denunciation. Tho Tribune's cor
respondent thus gives tho history of the
play and a description of tho scoue on its
first presentation :
"The history of the play is curious. It
was brought ont lirst of all, twelve years
ago, at Drury Lane, under the name of
" Gold," then turned into a novel, thenre-
xki aitinbl without lilt' ' illllllul s luu , w,
then suppressed for a time, and now it was
produced anew on Wednesday night, in
an improved form, under the superinten
dence of the author. The first act proved
dull and inoffensive ; the second imperiled
the whole piece. The scene was simply a
photograph view of the interior of a model
prison. There were prisoners and warders,a
crank, a treadmill, a winding staircase,
and so on. All persons who have read
the novel must remember the ghastly epi
sode of the lad Josephs and the savage
Governor, Hawcs. Well, that was at
tempted on the stitgc, and the audience
couldn't stand it. They hissed and groan
ed until the manager had to leave his open
cell, where ho was acting a prisoner driv
en to madness by solitary confinement and
cruelty, and came forward to the footlights
and requested the audience to allow the
piece to be finished. Since then it has
been modified, but is still objectionable,
