Tho propriety of reducing the price of

ed iu Eastern cities, and popular sentiment

upon the cause of temperance. The out
rage of charging five cents for a small glass
of beer drove many a good man into the Re

Master Gough Tarr.son of Mr. Thos.
Tan, attended Rob'-ison's circus last week.
What took his eye were tho acrobatic feats,
and early tuid late lie lias devoted himself
to practic'-';,' hand-springs, somersaults, and
other acts of ground and lory tumbling.
He had the science down to a very close
point, but it seems that ho was not perfect.
Yesterday lie attempted to perform one of
his favorite rly' ig leaps, but fell to the
ground and broke t.vo bones of his arm.
Dr. Dunning made the young gentleman
whole again, and he impar.ed the secct to
the doctor in confidence that he hopes to
be all right 5u a short lime, as he was sure
he "could do 'iat act."'
Altout ten o'clock last night some 'n
dMdual n Jaeckel's saloon, opposite The
Bulletin office, was taken suddenly sick,
and his yells could be heard three blocks
off. They were pro;, acted far 'do the
night, and the pierc'ng and unearthly
sounds of the pior sufferer would awaken
sympathy in a turnip. It appears that he
was affected with an overdose of water
melon, and gave vent to his feelings in this
way. A Tew simplc-nindcd people thought
that the fellow was a singer, who was living
on high nohs, but the fact that
lie yelled through his nose and seemed to
have been deprived of the use of his vocal
organs.dissipated all belief in the theoiy that
he was a sweet warblei. He was accompa
nied 'n his sickness by a superannuated gui
tar and a professor of 'ie divine art.
A gentleman, deep in the study of the
finances of the country, walked 5 do one of
the city bunks the other day, and made in
quit of the proper officials as to the pps
pects of obta'ning a loan. He was asked
the amount (a good round sum) and stated
it. Certainly, they had the money, and
would accommodate him at a reasonable rate
of interest Uon acceptable collateral. He
didn't have the collateral. He visited an
other banking 'nstitu.'on, and his experience
was precisely the same as at the first bank.
They had the money, and were anxious to
loan it upon a reasonable rate of interest up
on good collateral. His reception at lxith
banks set the gentleman to th'nk'ng. He
had been a pronounced advocate of fiat
money. He found money abi'-xlant, but
collateral scarce, and collateral is now what
lie is after. He has therefore t.nnsferred
his allegiance to a new party hm'tg for its
object an unl!mited increase of collateral,
to be called tho "More Collatera1" par.,
and liar ng as the only plunk of its plat
form the simple declaration: "More Col
lateral." The object of the gentleman's
party has the merit of simplici.,', as it can
be readily understood. Give him more
collateral, he says, and the money problem
v- '11 cease to bother him.

AN AOKD COtTLE ROIHIED OF OVER
HUNDRED DOLLARS HY MIDXItlHT RAI
AT WOLFE ISI.ASD, OX TUESDAY SKillT.
From Captain Tom Tarr, who arrived at
home yesterday evening by the steamer
Nellie Thomas, we learn of a daring, yet
amusing robbery, which occurred at Wolfe
Island on Tuesday night. The particulars
of the crime as stated by Captain Tarr, are
alsuit as follows: At the Island there lives
an aged and decrepit gentleman named
V. W. Husk, who has at his home a young
man, an invalid, named Lovett.
On the night in question, there were
tour young men, friends of Lo Ttt, sitting
up with him. All was quiet iu and alwut
the bouse until midnight, when there sud
denly ami unexpectedly stepped into the
room where the sick man was a man lying,
hea'.ly masked. He was accosted by one
of the watchers, who thought a joke was
to be indulged in, in a rude manner, when
the unknown party stepped out of the room,
to return a few mhiutes later with three
companions, all of whom also wore masks.
The man who had entered the house first
and who seemed to be the leader of the
gang, commanded the four young men to
"throw up their hands," which they did
without wemony, and while three of the
desparadocs kept watch over them the
chief went into the bedroom where Mr.
and Mrs. Husk were asleep, and arousingtlie
old lady from her slumbers, demanded of
her, iu authoritative tone, the key of the
smoke-house, which she suriendered at once.
Ho then returned to the sick-rooom and
commanded the prisoners to follow him.
He went to the smoke-house, unlocked the
door, and then ordered his captives In.
They obeyed, when he closed the door,
locked it securely, nnd returned w ith his fol
lowers to the house. By this time M.. aid
M.-s. Husk had a ose, and on re-enteriig
the houo, he chief of the robbers requested
Mrs. Husk togiveupthe keys to the bureau
adding: "Don't be afraid, we won't hut
you if you behave yourself." This reqmst
was also granted, and the robber proceeded
to open the bureau ond take (ait
four one hundred dollar balk
nnjoi and two Mei'can dollars, tho latt-r
pieces hav'ng been preserved by Mr. Hiwk
for many years, he intendiog them to lo
U:,cd to close his eyes after death. The
robber then proceed to carefully replace
everything he hail taken from the bureau,
except the money. When ho had finished
he returned the keys to tho old lady, say
ing: "I'll keep the smokehouse key," and
tho desperadoes departed equally us quietly
as they had come.
After an hour's hard lalxir Mrs. Husk
Hiieceededeil in liberating the smokc-houso
prisoners by break'ng the staple 011 the door,
but be'ng unarmed they were unwilling to
attempt search and up to yesterday morning
no cluu to the robbers hail been gained. It
is supposed that the leader of the party is a
man well k.iowa in the iciriity of the Island,
aud who is thoroughly aequa'nted with the
house of Mr. Husk and its surroundings.

OAMRETTA OS THE KEUI.IN CONORESS.
Paris, July, 24. Gamltetta, in an inter
view concerning the treaty of Berlin said :
"In my opinion it may be affirmed that the
congress at Berlin has modified, iu a very
essential way the basis of the understand
ing of 187:t, ami 1 think France has every
reason to approve a change which imxlihVs
a combination formed apart from her, if
not against her. The change brought aljout
in England's jiolicy is another consequence
of not less importance, resulting from the
congress on which France cannot but con
gratulate herself. In establishing herself
at Cyprus us an advanced guard and iu
constituting herself protectress of the
Asiatic interests of Turkey, England has
abandoned that policy which I shall call
insular to resume her policy of watchfulness
on the continent. France cannot but hail this
change with gladness; things have returned
to their logical and natuntl course. The in
terests of France and England are so close
ly connected that a return of England to a
less narrow policy rescues the two states at
the same time from the temporary isolation
into which thev chanced to fall. In conse
quence of the challenge brought about by
the Congress, the interests of England and
Austria are identical in the East. The in
terests of England and France, already
somewhat identical, have became more so
and I congratulate myself in the name of
my country on a change winch I deem very
fortunate and very assuring for every one.
I will not enter turther into a detailed ex
amination of the treaty which I should not
be able, perhaps, to approve in all its parts,
but w hat I have mentioned will prove to
you that I cannot be classed among those
w ho are adversaries of the work of the Berlin
ATROCITIES IN HAIRDHESSING.
From London and Paris wo are given to
understand that ladies have taken to a new
way of dressing their hair by not dressing
it at all. that is to say, instead ot the putt
ing, "banging" and tou.ling it has had for
years, it is now parted plainly, combed
smoothly aud confined by a simple coil.
Homely women, it is said, are made tolerable
by this artless innovation, ami pretty women
are made by it to look "rascally demure."
V hat a pity that this chaste new tashion
didn't begin on this side of the Atlantic
this summer, instead ot waiting to ou
brought buck next fall for use at the opera
and winter parties ! 1 he dressing ot the to
male head ut Saratoga is quite as dreadtul
as it was at the time of the first appearance
of the spring Ixinnets, which demanded

The heads of matrons aro delormed by

from my soup this evenini I happened to
glance at an elderly lady with agreat number
