It is very rarely that atripple cf excitement
disturbs the quiet every day life at
tho county clerk's oflico. Thursday, however,
was an exception to the rule. The
occasion at the county clerk's W. W. Ball's
office, Judge W. P. Coons, officiating. The
contracting parties were Miss Lamira Henderson
and Mr. Robert Mason, of this
county. It was the first marriage that
Judge Coons hasbeen called on to solemnize

difficult to decide which was the more excited

The Portsmouth Tribune prints tho
S lowing: It is said the parties who hung
George Ellis at Ashland, last June, were
friends of Neal and Craft, who took this
summary modo of execution partly
through revenge, and partly to get rid of a
troublesome witness. If this is true tho
friends of Ellis will probably retaliate by
hanging Messrs. Neal and Craft, should
tho law and the incensed citizens fail to
perform that delicate operation, so that
the two gentlemen referred to have tho
choice of three routes to tho land of tho
sweet by and bye.

. Look Upon This Picture.
Ed. Bulletin: Pet mi t a stringer within
your gates to express his sincere acknowledgements
for the numerous courtesies
extended to him during a brief
sojourn in your beautiful city; and, especially,
for the unfailing courtesy of gentlemen
whom their fellow citizens have
honored with oiiicial position. Your chief
magistrate, citizens of Maysville, is u gentleman
who is in every respect worthy of
his exalted office. $A man ot superb
presence; of fine personal antecedents; of
unexceptionable Social position; thoroughly
versed in the arts of civic administration;
trained to a prompt dispatch of business,
and wholly impartial in his judicial
rulings, he recalls that early type of magistracy
which was once the" peculiar distinction
of eVery Anglo-Saxon commonwealth.
It has been my constant delight to
attend the daily sessions of your citv court
in order that I might study at my leisure
these ancient methods of judicial administration
as revived and applied by your
distinguished mayor one of the noblest
impersonations of justice that ever sat
upon the municipal bench; a picture of
magistracy in itslatestandfiuest
high mental gifts, set ofi by personal
advantages of an impressive character,
a weighty presence, a lofty bearing,
a grave and decisive manner, in a word,
"the fiontor Jove himself
An eye, like Mars, to threaten or command."
Permit me, also, in concluding these
hasty acknowledgements, to express mv
gratification that the social and business
circles of your city should have the constant
advantage of contact with a gentleman
of such merit as the cashier of the
Bank of Maysville. Smooth, elegant, cultured,
an honorable and exact business
man beds everything that a model citizen
should be. Respectfully yours,
Col. Geo. O'Neal.
MELVILLE'S RUINED HOME.
Sared From an Icy Grave to Find His lVife
Philadelphia, September 19. The Record
has the following: When Engineer
Melville left his home to join the ill-fated
Jeannette expedition among tho last persons
ho saw was the good old phvsician
who had attended his family since ho had
been at Sharon Hill, Dr. Congstreth. A
cloud had arisen in Melville's domestic
life. His wife had acquired an appetite
for drink, which had more than once involved
her in trouble and threatened to
engulf him in ruin. All efforts t: conquer
her craving for liquor had failed, and
although at times thero seemed to be
ground for hope, tho Engineer left his
family with many misgivings. Ho asked
his friends to look after his wife and the
little girls, and one day taking tho family
doctor aside, said to him : Look after them,
doctor. I leave them in the hands of
heaven and of my friends." On Friday
night the voyager returned to his home
and found his wife under the influence of
liquor, and the generous reception of the
Sharon Hill people was wound up with a
drunken orgie, in which Mrs. Melville and
the negro waiters were conspicuous. A
Sharon Hill friend of Engineer Melville, a
lady who lives within a hundred yards of
the Melville cottage, said: "Poor Melville's
heart was almost crushed. He had
heard in New York stories which prepared
him to find that Mrs. Melville had
not given up her unfortunate habit, and
these reports, had been, in u measure,
confirmed at Philadelphia, but for the terrible
reality which was to confront him
upon the threshold of his home, he had
not been prepared. Don't misunderstand
me," added the lady. "I don't mean to
say a word that might do Mrs. Melvillean
injustice. She is a most generous, kind
hearted and sympathetic neighbor. A
mother who loved her children and took
excellent care of them in a way. I think
that she is also fond of her husband and
proud of his fame, but the demon which
held possession of her has clouded 'her
whole life and 'involved her unhappy fam
ily in such distress as is painful to think
As goon as Engineer Melville had greeted (
his children, he went into the sitting-room,
where his wife was waiting to receive him.
He saw too truly that his worst suspicions '
were to be realized. Opiates and drugs
had been given to her, in hope that she
might tide over the night. Once during
the evening she broke away from the reception-room
and went to the kitchen,!
where, in company with the colored waiters
and others, .she drank three glasses of
wine aud other liquors.
. When the guests had departed and the
children had been put to bed, the two
were left alone the unfortunate woman
and the unhappy man.' The reaction after
weeks and months of over indulgence,
came at last. Mrs. Melville became alarm-
liigiv delirious. Mie tnreueneu to Kill ner
husband, drew a pistol on him and declared
.-he would iiotonly end his life, but would
destroy her children and burn down the
Mr. Melville then left the house in order
to Mcii her and the man who had braved
death in its mosst dreadful form without a
tremor fled into the dark night miserable
and crushed in spirit. Fearing that his
wife might do harm to herself and her
children, he sent a man -back to watch the
house while he went to procure medical
advice and the counsel of friends. The
result is already known.
Anntiier neighbor anil friend of the Melville
family, to whose house Engineer Melville
went on Sunday morning, says that
she never saw such a picture ot grief in
her life. For a few moments he gave way
to his feelings in a fiood oNtears, with his
head bowed between his hands. Me had
been without all night in anxious consultation
with Drs. Longstreth, of Sharon
Hill, ami Bartle.son, of Clifton, and friends
Later in'the day the two doctors visited
Mrs. Melville, and after a consultation
signed a certificate that her mind had
beeu deranged by chronic alcoholism, and
delivered it to her husband.
As to the sanity or insanity of Mrs. Melville
when not "under the" influence of
liquor, each doctor declined to express an
opinion, bne lias been considered unbalanced
in mind for a long time. Her
mother died insane, and her, aunt died in
an insane asvlum some years ago- Mr.
Melville was compelled to publish a warn- J
ing to the public not to trust his wife on i
his account. She is an excellent shot with
j a pistol or rifle, and on the occasion of her
recent visit to Washington to interview
Secretary Chandler about her allotment
i she threatened to shoot that official.
