A Birmingham (England) paper says
Mr. Charles Bridges, solicitor, com
mitted suicide in a manner horrible
even to contemplate. Shortly before
11 o'clock, when the express train from
London, due in Birmingham at 11 :io.

mile of Stechford's station, the driver
perceived a man climbing the embank
merit on which the line is constructed,
Arrived at tbe top. he looked around
him in all directions, then threw his
can in the air.and knelt on the ground,
as if to look under the train which was
aoDroaching. The driver whistled to
arn the man, and, although he must
' have heard the sound, he took not the
lightest notice of it When the train
waa within a few yards of him, the
man deliberately Ur down on tbe rails,
face downward, and it being beyond
the. bounds of human possibility to
atoo tbe train then, it passed over him.
Tbe driver polled up the train aa
soon as possible, and informed aome
plate-layers of the occurrence, and
then went on to Birmingham. A little
before 12 o'clock Mr. Hyatt station-
master at Dow street went to tbe spot

HIGHWAY ROBBERIES NEAR CLEVELAND.
Four Mea Stopped—One Man Shot.
[From the Cleveland Herald. 14th.]
On Monday evening, soon after six
'clock, as Mr. William Fuller, former
ly County Auditor, was driving home
Com this city In a buggy, accompanied
by bis daughter, he was confronted by
wo men at Brainardt iarm, near
Brooklyn Center. Each robber was
well armed. One seised the horses by
the head, the other approached tbe
buggy and demanded the money. Mr.
Fuller did not urge any serious objec
tions to giving them money, bat he is
evidently opposed to the ' 'contraction
of the currency" in his own pocket.
He stood up in tne onggy, noiaing toe
reins, and vainly tried to persuade the
heathen to abandon their idols. They
couldn't afford to wait for him
to . exDlain his "doIict. so one,
seizing him by the clothing, attempted
to drag him lrom tne buggy, tie gave
the robber a severe blow over the head,
causing him to stagger several feet
from tne vehicle. Hays ISO. 'i, at tne
horses, "Will I shoot?"- The other
said "Yes." and bang went a pistol
shot, wide of tbe mark. However, mis

the spokesman again, "Win yon give

and he was shot upon the spot The
ball entered near tbe navel. Dot aid

remains in the wound. Drs. Weber
and Smith left the city about nine 0 '
clock, to afford all the relief a surgical
operation could give. Wnen tpe snot
took effect, Mr. Fuller and his com
panion, a daughter, cried "Murder,"
causing the rascals to abandon their
clans, and fiv from the scene. Mr,
Fuller is dangerously, bnt it is to De

the fourth nerson who was attacked by

[From the St. Louis Democrat, 10th.]
For a long time the police have been
troubled by a set of thieves and pick
sockets who are so expert in tneir pro
fession that they manage to avoid ar
rest while in the act of committing
depredations. These men are known
to the detectives, and many of them
have been arrested as vagrants, "shown
up," and fined, but they still remain in
the citv and prey upon the community.
A new expedient was tried yesterday to
get rid of a suspected thief, and that
was to march him through the streets
with a pasteboard placard on his back.
on which was inscribed the terrible
sentence: "This is a thief and a safe-
blower." The name of the victim
Tony Craig, who is said to belong in
New York, and is represented as one of
the most expert men in the business.
A sergeant escorted Tony, and be was
followed by an officer carrying four iron
rods about an inch thick and each about
two feet long. These rods oonld be
screwed together and used as a crow
bar for prying open safes, two of the
pieces being provided witn a curved
olaw at the ends, made of hardened
steel. With this apparatus it is said
that a man can break open almost any
safe in use.
Tony was marched np Fourth street,
up Fifth &nd Broadway, stopping at
the Expreas Office and other places, to
make tbe acquaintance of tbe clerks.
A crowd of several hundred people fol
lowed, and the general exolamation
was tbat he was served right. On
taking him to the Southern Hotel,
Tonv objected to going in, saying he
"did not board at a first-class hotel"
He was then taken to the calaboose.

in the same way, unless they shake the
dust of the city from their feet There

The History of a Gambler.
Tbe Chicago .Republican says
detectives of that city have arrested
man named William M. Betz, on charg
es of swindling and various minor of
fences. He was taken to the Armory,
and there remains awaiting a requisi
tion from tbe (Jovernor of Massachu
setts, when he will be sent to Boston
for trial His life has been eventful
He was once wealthy, with prospects
becoming a millionaire, but lost all
the gaming table. -Last autumn he was
engaged in an extensive iron manufac
turing enterprise in Brooklyn, New
lork, and for a time, by means
earnest application to business, be
came very well-to-do. Finally
was drawn into gambling, and bnt few
weeks passed before he bad sacrificed
his last dollar. His father-in-law, per
ceiving in him the elements of success,
if bis passion for gaming could-
curbed, took him into partnership,
and for a while he showed favorable
signs of reformation. But bis old
familiarity with the exoiting cbanoes
the gaming table returned, and he be
came a bankrupt. His partner discard
ed him, and his wife, for lack of the
bare necessities of life, waa compelled
to return to her father. At this stage
the outcast began his career of swind
ling. Persons whom be met in Boston,
Albany, and other eastern cities, are
said to have lost extensively by him,
his system being to borrow large sums
of money by false pretences, and gam
bling away all be received. Certain

Daboibous Spobt.A Detroit paper
tells a story with a moral. A social
company of eight or ten persons passing
an eveniug together at the house of
one of their number, in a merry mood
one of the gentlemen challenged
lady to marry him. She accepted the
challenge; tbe nearest minister was
informed that his services aere needed
the gentleman supposed that the min
lbter understood tbat it was "all
joke;" the lady, a strict chnrchwoman
intended to interrupt the ceremony
before tbe fatal words were spoken,
Unfortunately, the minister supposed
tbat a real marriage was on the carpet
and,- beiug a' Presbyterian, made tbe
seryioes so short that it was ovjr when
the' bride thought it was hardly begun.
In consequence of this unpleasant
mistake the young lady has sued for a
divorce, and the gentleman makes no
defence. The papers are now in the
hands of the Judge, who is, ot course,
benevolently anxious to help the young
people out of their trouble, if ha can
do so with any color of law. But tbe
moral is, that marriage ia no joking
matter, and tbat giddy yonng persons
had better exercise their wit on other
Bcsnnss Onavunmak. It ia the

A Paris Wedding. AN AFFAIR OF HONOR.
Duel dear Patterson, N. J.—A New York
Merchant and a Bank Clerk the Principals
—The Former Shot in the Mead.
- An affair of honor now-a-dya so
rare an occurrence, especially in our
northern ktituda, with tbe weather
oold enough to freese the hot blood-
came off lately in tbe neighborhood
of Patterson, N. J. The participants
in the duel were gentlemen of Nem
lork city one a Mr. X., Pemberton,
an importing merchant tba other a Mr,
Doblienx, a Wall street bank clerk.
Tbe duel ended with a single exchange
of shots, Mr. Pemberton' ball striking
a tree close by, while tbat of Mr.
Deblienx, being better aimed, struck
his antagonist in the forehead, inflat
ing a serious wonud. .The qaarrel it
is told, originated in this way. A short
time since the parties concerned at
tended a ball at Irving Hall, Mr. Pem
berton accompanying a sister of Mr.
Deblienx, During the course of tbe
evening tbe latter learned that his sis
ter had been insulted by bis friend.and
he at once sought out Mr. Pemberton
and charged him with the offence; a
quarrel ensued betveen them bnt they
were soon separated by the ball com
mittee, and there fpr the time the mat
ter rested. On the following morning,
however, Deblienx wrote to Pember
ton demanding an apology. This the
latter declined to gire, whereupon Mr.
Debliepx, who is a Southerner by-the-by,
sent a friend t) Pemberton, chal
lenging him to fight bim, or in case of
refusal to prepare for oonseqnenoes
which must result at their first meeting.
Pemberton, even at this crisis, it is
said, not having the faintest idea that
the threat would be carried out, still
oonsented to meet his antagonist and
pot his share of the matter into the
hiiuds cf a few confidential friends who
J ore inclined to look upon tbe thing
1 a good joke. Nevertheless the usual
preliminaries were regularly gone thro'
and the spot seiettea lortne encounter.
On Wednesday evening tbe duelists,
aocompauied by, their confidential
friends, left the city ot ratterson,
where they stopped all night, keeping
their plot agaiust each other's peaoe
from tbe publie ear. Yesterday morn'
ing, after breakfast tbe party proceed
ed in carriages to Ooodwiusville, near
Patterson, and , reined to a secluded
spot of this secluded place to carry
out their deadly1 purpose.
Then and then only, it appears, did
the thing begin to look truly serious to
the friends, ho had been good-
naturedly waiting for a band-shaking,
which would settle the matter. They
tried to settle the difficulty, Pemberton
being willing, bht Deblienx was inex
orable in hisdeniand for blood, remark
ing that if Peaberton attempted to
leave the grouni before he had given
bim satisfaction he would shoot him
then and there. As it was now evident
that this geutleBau meant all he said,
tbe final preparations were made, the
friends ot both iarties exacting a pro
mise that single shots only would be
exchanged, whatever the result In
conceding to this proposal, Deblienx
remarked, "On shot will . do . me, I
only ask but oqe," and as he said so
bo looked perieotiy cool ana uncon-
oerned. Pembtrton, on the contrary,
evidently disliked the affair, and took
his position with evident embarrass
ment of manner and with a tremulous
hand. Tbe words one, two, three
beiug given, with the utterance of the
last came the report of either pistol
simultaneously,' Deblienx stood un
hurt. Pemberton 8 ball navwg passed
to bis left lodging in a tree close by;
but he had suociieaed In making good
bis word, for his antagonist was found
to have received a dangerous gash in
the side of the head and a slight frac
ture of the skull, tbe ball escaping tbe
brain only by half its own diameter.

dressed, and ths entire party returned
to Paterson as auietly as they had left

A Horrible Affair—A Mother Accused of
Poisoning Four of Her Children
Three of Them Dead.
[From the Pittsburg Republic, 14th.]
Yesterday evening we were informed
by a railroad officer of a most horrible
poisoning affair whioh occurred in Up
per nandusky, on the Jrort Wayne
Boad, surpassing in atrocity and bend
ing cruelty even the Mrs. Grinder
scenes 01 poisoning in this city. Tbe
following are tbe circumstances, as re
lated to u: ' '
The woman accused ot poisoning
her children is a widow, aged from
forty toorty-nve years, and baa been
for a long time a resident ot Upper
Sandusky, Ohio. Her .husband, by
whom she had four children, died some
years ago. bite never married again
but since his death has given birth
three illegitimate children, who have
been living with ber. The reputed
father of these ohildren lives iu the
city of Pittsburg, it is said, It is re
ported that some time since he pro
posed to her that if she oonld get rid
her legitimate children, he would pro
vide for her and raise and educate the
illegitimate ones, ..
Boon after her eldest daughter, aged
about 17 years, and living in a family
soma distance from Upper Bandnsky,
was suddenly taken sick and her moth
er sent for to see her. She grew rapid!
ly worse after the mother's arrival, and
died in great agony. The physioian
oonld not account clearly for her symp
toms, bnt haying no suspicions
poison at the time, tba body was
buried. In about six months after tbe
second daughter died suddenly with
tbe same symptoms.- A few weeks ago
tbe next in age died io the same man
ner, and last week the last child (a boy)
of her marriage was taken down,
by late account was at the point
death. These repeated singular and
sudden deaths, all coinciding in symp
toms ana manser together, aroused
terrible suspicions in the minds of tbe
neighbors, which were strengthened
by her loose and immoral course
Tbe county authorities took the mat
ter in hand for investigation, and last
week, by their order, tbe body of the
eldest daughter waa disinterred, the
stomach taken, ont and subjected
chemical analysis. The analysis dis
covered a large ' quantity of arsenic
the stomach, more than sufficient
causa death. As soon aa this terrible
discovery was made tbe bodiea of the
other two victims were disinterred, and
tne stomachs subjected to tbe same ex
amination, which resulted in the dis
covery of arsenic in each of them.
Sinoe the discovery of tha fact that
tba children were poisoned, it is said
that tha mother', in the ease of tha eld
est daughter, who was about to
married, sent her as a present a poison
ed eake, which the daughter received
and ate, and that fearing that this
would not be fatal, she hastened to
her, and finding ber prostrate, mixed
more arsenio in the food she adminis
tered. Such horrible depravity seems
too great almost for belief.

The Last Duel in Kurope.
There is a mixed railway train daily
going through toAix-hvChapelle by the
northern lice. ' A few days tgosoms
three or four gentlemen' were seated in
a first-class carriage of this train. One
was the Count , a Prussian noble
man, going to Berlin. He was con
versing in s loud voice with a gentle
man next him, giving a full account of
some of the.political and warlike events
of last year, and in that arrogantly
offensive tone whioh is very character
istic of the Prussian of tbe modern Bis
mark school, ha swaggered overmuch
at the expense of Austria.
Another gentleman in the opposite
corner of the carriage oonld Dot help
over hearing this language, and he was
.naturally muoh disgusted being the
rsaron , an Austrian uoionoi.
Indeed, at last the Baron, to get out
of earshot or to cool his rage, opened
the window aod put his head out. The
Prussian complained of the oold, and
at last peremptorily requested that the
window be shut "Ion fear the oold,"
said the Baron, more enraged than
even tWe shall see by-and-bywbether
yon fear the fire." The Count under
stood him. "Whenever yon like," said
he. It so happens that this train stops
an honr at Lille. The Baron
ran to the barrack and introduced him
self, told his story, and found two offi
cers who oonsented to sot as his sec
onds. The Count found two of his
countrymen traveling on the train, who
did the honorable needful for him.
They fonnd the nearest retired place.
but the whole of the passengers, who
somehow got intelligence of the matter,

Trouble in Holland.
Tbe Pall Mall Gazette says: "Oir
correspondent at tbe Hague writes on
the 21st of December: 'The King of
Holland has just taken a step tbe oon
seqnenoes ot whioh may turn out to be
mucn grayer man proDaoiy ne antici
pates. In oonsequenoe of an adverse
vote in tbe Second Chamber of the
States-General, the Ministry tendered
their resignations. The king took
time for consideration, desiring the
ministers to retain office in the mean
while, and has now deoided not to
part with them. The. Chamber has de
liberately rejected the budget for' for
eign affairs and passed censure on the
minister of that department let the
ing. setting aside tbe opinion of tbe
Chamber, sends baok to it the minis
ter ' whom ' it has condemned
the strongest '' manner. He
has, of coarse, the proper alterna
tive of dissolving the Chamber, but it
is still uncertain whether be will avail
himself of it; there can be no doubt
that the elections would put tbe gov
ernment ia a worse rather than a bet
ter position. The resolution of the
King to retain bis ministers in defiance
of the Second Chamber is said to have
been come to after be bad consulted
each member of the v First Chamber
separately. The dispute between tbe
Dutch government and tne urana
Duobv of Luxemburg, as to the olaim
by the former of an old debt of some
seven million francs,- dating from the
division of the debt between Heigium
and Holland in 1831, still continues.
The Dutch government has rejected
the arbitration proposed by the Grand
Americans in Park.

Who's portrait?" "Confound the
festive cuss I who can understand his
lingo?" are the expressions invariably
beard in such orowds. It seems as
though Paris was exhibited piecemeal
to Americans, and Americans are con
stantly paying odd francs for explana
tions they cannot understand.
Once in a while a forward American
girl, or a gruff Englishman, is bold
enough to interrupt the harangue
with a question . in oroxen renon
the . Frenchman, . . who invaria
bly has . bis explanations by
heart in set phrase, blows his nose
deliberately, and, instead ot answeriug
the question,' begins bis story over
again from the beginning. One fat
sexton at St Denis, who might serve
aa a pattern in elignity and behavior,
has, by dint of great application, learnt
to pronouooe tbe single word "silver-
gilt," and whenever he finds a fitting
opportunity be pronounoes it at the
end of his aentenoe onoo or twice by
way of explanation, and evidently de
rives great satisfaction from doing so.
His audience, who do not understand
his French, are equally nonplussed by
his EneliKh. and look upon bim with
their months open. He straightens
bimself up and repeats "silvergilt" with
the greatest gusto, and evident surprise
at bis own abilities. ,
