A Sixteen-Year.Old Girl Marries
a Sightless Paper Dealer.
[,New York Mail.]
There is now in the care of Matron Bur
roughs, at the Jefferson Market Police
Court prison, awaiting transportation to
Blackwell's Island, Mrs. John ictUmber,
born Miss Matry F. Patterson, a pretty girl
of sixteen, who but a few days ago started
forth in lifei on her own account in a fash
ion decidedly at variance with the views of
i her relatives and friends. Mrs. McUmnber,
for Huch she claims her name to be. Is the
daughter of Mrs. Catharine Ryder, by her
first husband. For a long time past Mrs.
Ryder has occupied the position of house
keeper for a family on Fifty-fifth street,
andl when she went there she took her
young damtihter, an only child,.along with
About; a .fortnightl ago Mary ran away"
from her mother, and on Friday night last
sent her word that she was nmarried. Mrs.
Ryder was half distracted atr this intelli
gence, and colununicated the fact to the
family with whom she was living, who ad
vised her to have the mr.tter investigated
in a police court. On the representation
of the mother, Justice Murray issued a
warrant for the arrest of the parties.
It was known that MecUmber, who is
blind, kept a paper stand on Twenty-ninth
street and Tenth avenue, but he could not
be found there. lie was traced to the
dwelling of, Mrs. Neil, 217 Chrystie street,
who occupied an upper floor in the build
ing, and was finally found in the apart
ments of anotherfamuily in the same house.
They were taken before Justice Murrlay at
the Jefferson Market Police Court, twhen
upon compl:int of the mother of the girl,
she was sent to the Work-house fir six
months in default of $1,000.
MecUmber was ordered out of ithe Court,
and be went off swearing that he would
have his wife. The mother says that Mary,
while visiting some relatives at Woonsock
et, II. I., becamie acquainted with McULm
her, who is much older than herself, while
the girl says she made his acquaintance
here and that with him she joined a mu
sical troupe. Her cousin, Gus, Williams,
was to be the manager, and she was to play
the cornet, which they were to teach her.
She says that she was married to McUmn

street, and that: lie has the certificate of
When naked why. she had pursued such
a course, she intimated that it was to get
away froml her mother.
Iet~-een the Actg.
,Mr. A C. . Wheeler ("Nymn Crinkle,")
one of the ablest dramatic editors in New
York, writes thus in his Sunnyside Press:
RiThe best acting that the writer of this
Iarticle ever saw Miss Neilson do was be
tween the acts. He called upon her one
'afternoon at the Fifth Avenue Hotel, and
while there three enormous baskets of
flowe·rs were sent in by the well-known
wife of a millionaire banker. From this
collection she was to choose the one that
should be sent up to hei upon the stage in
the evening. She was severely critical,
turned themta around, and finally, with de
lightful disdain, thought 'that one would
do.' The florist bowed, and- went away.
That night, after the second act of 'Ro
meo and Juiiet,' she Was recalled. While
bowing a;rd blushing at the footlights,
theite was a stir in the aisle, and two ush
er.' were seen making their way to the
orchestrid with the poinderous and beauti
ful basket of' ilowei's. I never saw any
thing so spontahneous, so childishly natural
and so unspeakably charming as was her
astonishment at the gift. She looked at it
with her handsome eyes filled with tears
of surprise, and then she looked at the au
dience as if' there must be some mistake,
and the gift could not be intended for so
unworthy an artist as herself. The audi
ence encouraged her by applause, and she
clapped helr bands, and .peered over its
edge, and trembled a little with the force
of the unexpected honor. Then she pick
ed it up, and, beaming like the morning
star, ltowers and actress went off in one
variegated mass of loveliness. I never
saw her do any thing which for high! art
compared with that. But her Rosalind
was, to my mind, one of the most beauti
ful stage exhibitions I ever witnessed."
He Wanted a, Change.
ITare was a little shooting-scrpe at a
little town in the interior of Texas, not
long ago, and it was not long, before a
Galvestoil eta'ws reporter was on the spot
interviewing one of the principals.
"So you are going to write it up,"' said
'"Ycs, I want all the facts."
"I don't care it cent what you say itboutt

The. reporter said he would gra t it
cheerfully if he could.
"Well,"' said the shootist, "I want you to
put down that my grandfather was one of
Lafitte's pirates, and the worst cutthroat
of the gang." 1
The reporter stared a little, but the
shootist went on to say;
"Please put in that one of my uncles t
was hung by the Vigilanie Committee in
San Fraheisco, and two more of them are
making shoes in the Illinois peniteltlary;
that another one of them is practising law
in New York, and my only sister ran I
away from home with the clown of a c
circus; that, as far as you ctin learn, there
is not a member of the family that has not
done something disgraceful."
"Why, what do yon want all that in the

papers that every fellow who has a little f
shooting scrape belongs to one of the- most c

to a highly disreputable family. If you ¬
don't put it that way, you will wish you t
[Letter in New York Mailt] '
Some men's fncies rual to umbrellas, [
somne to watch chains, some to vests of as- c
tonishling patterns, some toboots, others to '
collars and cravats, and a vast majority to a
suits. Combined l"ith all: there is a deal c
of'self-admiiration Which the world but lit- f
tle susp&'ts. Major Tom Ochiltree, the a
norted Texan"Rl.ianger, Is especially pi*oud
of his Titian lesses; CtGoNic;bola Smith, I
beinug the "handsomest iman in town," is e
said tobae spoiied by ;faittry, as wellas he I
might be; Mr. Emrory A. Storr., the wittvi '
Chicago lawyelr, hasaa surprising collee- i
tion of neekties and appears in a new one
every ntorning. a
Mr. Storrs is said to be the most elo
quent stump speaker in the country,but we
are quite certain that if he orated from ev
ery individual stump in the far West, and
from every particular platform in the cul
tivated East, -le would preface every
speech by appearing in at brand-new era
vat of astonishing patt;ern. As we have
already stated, Mr. Bergh's fancy runs in
the same groove, -and, in despite of his
continual fight with this wicked world, lie
flnds-time to select his neckties of the most
unique styles. General Spiuola runs to
collars as aspiring ais a politician's ambi
tion. Judge Fitch has an invincible love
for alpaca coat, and the con vositiontal swal
low-tails, like a gentleman of the old
school. Senator )Don Ca;meron has a 1pa
tiality for hats.
Parole at HllomTe.
(Now York WMtd.]j
The steamer Ilelvetia, of the National
Line of steamships, which .nmade fast to the
pier last evening about 0 o'clock, brought
over the famnous brown gelding Parole,
Pappoose, Faldsetto, Sly Dance and Wyan
dotte. They left Newmarket on At.:gust
7th, in charge of Win. Bishop, assisted by
Pollett, an English lad, who goes to Ran
cocas, The lot were embarked at Liver
,pool on their arrival, the vessel sailing f
from that port ol the 10th inst. Those in
charge( say the jouney was a very pleasantt
one, and that all the horses have done well..
Parole has grown some since he left his
native shore. The horses were placed in
comfortable and roomy padded stalls on
the main deck, just forward of the main
mnast. Falsetto looks big an"d fat. his work
having been made very light on account
of his breaking down. LHpe- are entller
tained that he may be brought round. but
it is feared he 'will never be able to faie
the starter again. M
Mr. Lorillard expressed much l)easuire
on Saturday last at Monmouth P[ark that
the old horse was so soon to return, and
stated that if Parole could be got ready lihe
would probably start him at the Jerome
Park Fall meeting, while lie has already
been entered in the Pimlico Stakes to be
run at Baltimore this fall. Parole's attend
ants say that lie will certainly be lit to run,
and should Jerome Park be selected it is
certain that not only the vast crowd of
sporting men, but hundreds who never
thought of a race-horse irntil the news of
Parole's repeated victormes were flashed1
across the Atlantic, will flor the tirst time
in their lives visit a riace.eourse to add to
the enthusiasmn of a public welcome home.
It is understood that the lot will be remor
ed to Stoddard's stables in Greenwich St.
early this morning, whence, after a needed I
rest, they will journey slowly to the farm
of Jobstown. j
Like the wife-beater who averred that
his help-mate commenced hostilities by
throwing water and other combustibles at
him, offenders often boldly take the bull
by the horns and justify their wrong-do
ing. A woman brought before the magis- !
trates at Weston-super-Mare for stabbing
an aged dame, prollaime1l that the prosecu
trix was an old witch, who had "h:rrided"
her and her husband fir two years, com
ing to her house and groaning at her, till
she could not stand or do anything. Press
ed as to whether she saw the witch any
e where when she was taken that way, she
confessed that the old woman was not al
ways present at such times; "at least not
bodily, but she came in a nasty spiritual
way, making a nasty noise;'';" but since she
had "scratched" her, she had not troubled
her much. The plea, extraordiaryv as it
was, so far availed that the witch-scratcher
got oftf with a shilling fine.
SA more ipudent plea -was that put for
-w:ard by an Irish tramp fbr robbing a
miser. "Shure, your Worship, an' we're
° tould in the Bible that the way for a man
to get to heaven is to sell all he has ant'
C give the money to the poor; an' this mean
old crater'ud never have done that of his
own accord. So I just helped him on the
good road ineself, an' sould all I took an'
gave the money to the poor according.
Anyhow, I gave to meself, ye see; an'
r faith I'n as poor as a starved-out robin."
More frank than imlnudent was Patrick
Murphy, who appeared at the Dublin Po
lice Court in consequence of taking the
liberty of clearing a grocer's till of its con
tents without the owner's permission. He
looked so dejected that the magistrate,
thinking that he had a repentant sub
ject before him, resolved to improve the
occasion, and the following edifying col
loquy ensued: "It's a sad thing to see a
young-man of your age fall into evil ways.
Haven't you a family to look after you ?"
"The praties thiumselves are not more
"And have you any employment?"
"Shure ivvery hour was illegantly di
"And I presume you had prospects, and
hoped to rise in the world ?"
"Thrue for ye, your Honor. I expieted
to lave ivvery mother's son benathe me."
"And now," said the magistrate,"you've
lost character, prospects, everything, and
all for fivepence-farthing."
"Shure now, your Honor, that wasn't
my fault at all, at all," said the victim of
"It wasn't?" querried the magistrate.
"No, your Honor. How :was I to con
save that there'd be only dhirty-foive
pence-farthing ? Shure, and didn't I clane
out ivvery blessed cint I could foind ?"
A FACINATIN. FRAUD.
Miss Louisa Egerton.s Dear Uncle's
oAt the Mansion house, yesterday, be
fore Aid. Sir Henry Lusk, M. P.,. a well
dressed young womanl, 24 years <of age,
who gave the assumed name of Louisa
Egerton; was brought up for examination
ona: charge of obtaining money by false
pretenses from Mlrs. Gale, house-kdeper of
the Great Britian land-office, in Cheap
side. The prisoner went to the office af
ter business hours onil the 6th inst., and
represented that she was the niece of Mr.
Mikeham, the actuary : that nher sister ,vas
[dying, and that she wanted her unele to
cash her a ceheck for £50; Her manner
was so plausible and she appeared to be in
suchidistress of mind that Mrs. Gale was
completely thrown off her guard. She at
first offered to let the prisoner have a half
sovereign, but she rejected the offer scorn
fIly, mind Mrs. Gale wai: induced to let
her :have £2 19r. Before she left she ask
ed for wri1ting nmtteriahi antd addressed a i
letter to Mr. Mikeham, calling him her
"dear uncle," and informing him that she
had called to get cash fora:.2heck, that his !
"gobd hoque-keeper," hd :kindly lent her
some mopey, and that she :wonIld call on
the following Monday to see hitii; Mr.
Mikehant was perfectly astonished on read
ing the letter, as the person was an eatire
Istrangoer to hit1m.
A oentlematit addressing the Aldernlan
sald he wished to bring before the notice
of the court a matter that had caused him
a great deal of annoyance, anld in respect
to which he wished to make a public con
tradietion. Prisoner called at his esta:b
lishment during his absence, stating that s
she particulnirly wished to see tint, ;and,
fndindg he was absent, she wrote a letter,i
in which .tshe address him is "dear Rob
err," representing that lie was her hus- 1
band and that he had deserted her'. The
letter stated in mnost tot',chingl language e
that she was in Lotndon for the purpose of i
looking after hint, and she implored him (
"tbr God' sake,'" to retturn holme and for
get all that had passed. The letter further
went on to say that she had expendedtl' all
her m1ouns: that she was il Lon don quite o
Sdestitute, and that their h:thy was tying.
She implored hini to return home, if not
for her sake, flo that of their "'dear child.''
The letter concluded with "'fron Yourt
own pcr, lost and abandoned wife. Matr
g'aret." This letiter was left open, and
the contell ts became knowu to the c'lerks
and othetrs conniecred with hiis establish
Imetit, and had cnused hint the greatest I
possihle :lannoyancel; therlcefotre he was alx- I
ious to state publiely that there was tot

Every locality has its peculiar tame fav
orites. We should about .s soon think of
petting a snake as a, lizard. Not so in Ne
vada. The Virginia City BEterprie., says:
A miner on Six Mile Canyon ires two
large spotted lizards as pets. lIe keeps
them in a cage, to which is attached a
wheel, in which they play us cheerfully as
though they were squirrels. The miner is
very fond of his pets., In speaking of
them he said:
"They are just the cunnin'est little fel
lers in the country. Talk about a squirrel
havin' sense, and a ground-hog havin'
aen se; why, nary one of 'em don't begin
to have sense like a lizard. Them little
fellers know me like I was their father.
When I come in from my work, you ought
to see their eyes glisten.
"They jest get up on their hind feet, an'
holdin' on to the wires with their two t
hands, look up at me and smile. No, sir,
I would not sell them. It would b)reak
their little hearts to be parted from me."
The following reminds us of two twin
schoolmates, many years ago, whose re
semblance was the cause of many amusing
mistakes. When .one of them was report
ed for any nlidemeanor, the principal
never knew which one to punish.
The twin daughters of John Ramsey, pf
Lexington, Ky., are so accurately alike as
to puzzle even their parents in determin
ing their identity. Not only are their fea
tures exactly alike; but they are the same
size, same height, same figure, and same
weight to within a half pound. They are
now in their eleventh year, have never
been sick, nor separated for any leingth of
time, are in the same classes, study from
one book, are both remarkably sprightly,
quite handsome, and each devoted to the
