PiTTsnuno, Pa., April 9. A deeply laid

of Mary Anderson, tho grout actress, has
just been mndo public at police headquar
ters in this city, The particulars in brief
aro as follows: A few weeks ngo tho

letter from Dr. Hamilton Grillin, stepfather
of Mary Anderson. It set forth that
Eomo timo previously, he had gotten a communication
through the mail from Dr.
Georgo If. Marshall, of Pittsburg, accompanied
by u pen printed letter. The letter
purported to be an advertisement for the
sale of a lot of pictuies of Miss Anderson's
nude torm. Dr. Mai shall, in Ins letter, explained
to Dr. Grifhn that he had come into
possession of the pen-printed letter and
had, by investigation, found that certain
parties had made a large number of
tho obscene photographs and proposed
to cast thorn to the public everywhere unless
.Mary Anderson and her fundi v gave
10,000. To Marshall's letter Dr. 'Gritlm
paid no attention, and in a. few weeks he
received a second nolo from him, again
warning of tho pchcnie, adding that he
only told him of it becauso of the cotntcsy
that should between physicians.
Upon the receipt of this leiter, Dr. Giitim
forwarded till tho correspondence to the
chief of police in Pittsburg, asking
him to investigate its truth. The chief
wiote back referring the doctor to Major
Moutooth, n piominent attorney here. A
hitch subsequently occurred between tho
doctor and lawyer about foes, and thti
duel's aid was again sought. Dr. Griflin,
wilting that he was not able to handle the
cisi because of a want of jurisdiction,
iiihtriieled that it should bo placed
in tho hands of the State or United States
Tho result was that to-day the
wuulo matter was placed in tho hands of
ine poMomoo detectives ur special agents

Ilxposurc of It Dealers'
New Yontc, April 8. The Philadelphia
Press has drawn editorial attention to tho
recent expose made by tho Fronch Government
of tho tricks of tho French wino
trade, and a widespread sensation among
thoso who have been priding themselves
upon their exclusivo use of imported wines
is tho lesnlt. The Press says: Foreign
dealers have turned upon the I'icnch
Government for its recent exposure of tho
tricks of the wine trade. Careful scientific
analysis, recently ma lo throughout all
tho exporting entrepots of France, hnvo
shown that not a drop of pine wine of tho
Burgundy or Doideiiux market is now sent
out to American consumers. Supplementing
the government tests, wo have had
of tho most ehiiu')tivc description
from our own and consuls, corroborating
every of the French
uis. Hut as Burgundy and Bordeaux
retain precedence In the markets, the
gnat houses of Mncm, Uheiins and Bordeaux
have uiilie.itutiugly placed their
Mm upin nil 'oris of decoctions.
Our home dca'ers sonm became apprised of
the condition of and. cring a M-p

ha -e unite 1 to protest
the i,f the
'ubiicated wines, ami it is not unlikely
tint t..o sub will be siiiiiotl.id over by
usponsion "f the labors of tho committee.
Ameiicaiis, however, have had ample
wiirning. Most of the wine drunk in this
country is either the direct -product of our
home vineyard-, or it is u thinly disguised
mixtiue of tin- strong li iii Is of the South,
where such delicate flavor nnd bouquet
asaic marked essentials of the French
wines are unknown. The evteit to which
this shameless tiallic has oeen carrie 1
should have the effect of establishing
American wine upon every
table where wine is used. For whilo our
re-l nnd white wines lack the
boiquet ami fino finish of
the thoy are uncompiirnbly
superior to tho Spanish jiell. Tiie
tiuth is there is a good d"nl i.f sham
and Miobhcry in the biiiiue3 of wine drinking,
as in of other sort". Millions
of bottles of no with the labels of
fiHiinus cell.irs are -old and drunk in this
c untry, which possibly be the product
of the plains of Champagne. 1'vun
tne tine brands of cognac conceal a well
undorstoo I a lullcialion, which lemovcs the
best product of Franco from its ancient
superiority. American dealers loso in the
end by cuoouruaing this dishonest system,
because they virtually close the market to
the ninny excellent wines we arc now
in this country.

A Strong rrobnhlllty That lie Will
Wamiinoton, April 0. Assistant Secretary
New arrived here yesterday from Indianapolis,,
and hist night ho received several
callers at his rooms at the Williard.
The papers hero say ho intends
his position as Assistant Secretary,
and that he feels the cut given iiim by
Grosluinrs appointment very keenly. Said
ono of his most intimate ft Sends yosterduy :
" I have no doubt Mr. New will resign his
position in the Treasury. Ho is the
man to do it, and with duo rcsnect to his
dignity I shall adviso him to do it."
" How soon?" I asked.
"Not until this breeze quiets down. But
I would not be at all surpi ised if he should
resign to-morrow, although 1 do not anticipate
it under a mouth. Ho is the kind of
man to resent a cut of this kind, and he is
not afraid to speak of it cither; ho is 'out
and out' himself. I don't believe there's
a Kopublican of proraiuenco in the State,
not oven excepting Grcsham himsolf, but
that believes in his own mind that Mr.
Now has not been fairly treated by the
Administration. He was the first man of
ptominenco in Indiana to espouso the
Arthur causo, and he took the position he
now occupies with tho promise of getting a
Cabinet ollico. Nover mind, there will be
a day of reckoning."
A paper says it is rumored that Secretary
Folior intends going out of tho Cabinet in
a short time, nnd that ho engineered the
appointment of Qrosham as Postmaster General
in older to provent John C. New succeeding
as Secretary of the Treasury.

twain nnd released him. Mr. Denton
escaped death by a second falling of walls,
which lolcascd him. Une man cut his
throat when ho found tho tlamcs burning
him. The cnuse of the calamity is uncertain.
It is thought that an explosion of
powder in Armstead's hardware store
blew out tho west wall, causing the ontiro
building to full. The adjoining buildings
were destroyed. Mr. D. Piuit l nved like a
maniac when ho knew of his mother's horrible
death, and it required several strong
men to save him from plunging headlong
into tho il.vnics. A telegintn was sent to
Sherman for a fire engine, which came at
