Nkw Youk, May 27. The Sun publishes a
communication from Miss Kliiibetli Cleve
land, sister of Piesident Cleveland, In reply
to Uev. Dr. Howard Crosby, on the question
of Total Abstinence. Miss Cleveland com-,
menccs by quoting tbe following from Dr.
Crosby: "I do not wonder that that excellent
woman, whose hnatcwi.l or sons hac become
sots should advocalo tnliil nhslinnnretor every
one. We havo heard a goo 1 wcunvi whoso
boy had cut his linger nearly off wlllia knife,
wish that thero were no knives In the world;
and if she could lure her nay she Mould
hive them all destroyed forthwith. It is
na'ural and a woman's rry on such an
occasion excites our tenderest gjiunnlliy,
but who will count tint an argument?"
Miss Cleveland then says: ' The above par
agraph from 'A Calm View ol Dr. Nelson,'
by tho Uev. Howard Crosby, iu tbe Evangebst
of March 17th, his most pertinaciously
haunted me ever since the perusal of the
article last evening. That this, above any
other paragraph, snould most Impress ilsell

creatures. The lioness, under ordinary
circumstances, is quite easy of

Both these phases of the fern lie nature are
undoubtedly natural. They belong, as llishop

may meet your children. on their way to
school, and may bite one or two
of them, than you "Uave to , cry
out against the manufacture and sale ol

The perfectly clear thing Is, II you only had
head enough to see it, that the manufacture

The I oldest exploit ol last night, however,
is the attempted safe blowing at Joseph
Spangenberger's, on East Main street. Mr
Spatgenberger keeps tbe Spangenber
ger House, and, fur the accommodation
of those of his boarders who may
be out late, always leaves the rear door into
one ol bis sitting rooms open. The burglars
entered through this door, and entered the
bar, wheie the safe stands, by breaking the
locks off the door between Ihe bar and sitting
room. It was evidently intended at irst lo
remove a panel irom the door, and with tbis
purpose the thieves hon d holes clear across
one end and side of the panel. Probably
concluding this was too tedious, they resorted
to the expedient of breakiug tbe lock. Alter
entering tbe bar tbey began boring a bole in
the sate with the intention ut introducing
powder with which to blow tbe door open.
The bole was almost deep enough to answer
their purpose when they were frightened
away by tbe hostler, who bad been sleeping
iu a neighboring room. He had been awak
ened by tbe noise made in forcing tbe door I e
tween the bar and sitting room, and, arising
looked first Into the latter room. Seeing
nothing unusual there, and finding It was
about 2 o'clock, be passed around through a
bock passage and up stairs to call some per
sons who wished to arise at that hour. Wb le
be was gone on this errand, the burglars must
have selted tbe opportunity to escape, as, in
returning, he came through tbe bar and found,
not tbe thieves, but all their tools and the
niaiks of their work. It is unlucky for the
cracksmen tbst they were scared off, as, if left
alone a little longer, tbey would probably
have teemed some $300 It was an exceed
ingly bold attempt, as boarders are entering
or going out at almost every hour of
