sent for the refugees, and we were Just re

above tho city opened upon us. We ruhei
the refugees below, and I ordered tile Brit

started our engines anj steamed ahead

cabin, struck us, and was followed up by
otheri which came dangerously close. Tho
shells were conical, and were tired from a

Seven shotsln all were tired but only three

learned that Her JtUJ-sly's man-of-war

for luc purposo of making an
Investigation Into tbo case.
It Is considered that the matter Is an out

New York, Oei. 10. Latest advices from

occurred at Port du Wince, Septem

On September 2.1 tho Government tt o ips,
while dislodging tbo Insurgents, beat urn tin
tuauageaale and began to pillage tho city.
The foreign ships In port bon&n to land and
quell the dielurbauee, and President Salo
mon was informed that, unless be
put a slop to tho outrages, the different
foreign ships In the harbor would take pos
session of the (own. On hearing this the
President Immediately caused the progress
of the fl tines to be stopped. This Is re
gsrdod ss decisive proof that' be could have
done so before, and that the outrages have
been done under bis orders. Mine, Salo
mon Is with the President. It Is thought
that thero will be a general uprising soon.
It is reported that koine of tho Government
troops at Jrreinio bavo surrendered to the
Revolutionists, saying that they hail no
provisions and were starving. President
Salomon is anxious, ll Is said, to leave
Httjll, but Is prevented by his followers,
who claim that he lias over $5(10,000 In Lon
don and Paris belonging to the Govern
iiviit. It Is thought that the recent Insult

Involve the government with Great llrliahi.
The few fullowers of Salomon are
becoming illscoii raged and say
they have neither men nor
money to carry on tbo war. The foreigners
have refused to le id money to the Pnsl

with goldtisb, which, however, through
the neglect of a careless servant, became
reduced to a single survivor. This one.
has been the object of the most Jealous care
on tho part of Mr. Hriukcihoff , who ob
jected strenuously to the introduction Into
his household in July last of a larg'i tnaltese
cat, the pet of liis youngest daughter.
The child, however, overruled her father's
objections anl secured a berth for her
pet, proinisingtoguard the goldfl-h front III
attentions. Tbuit she had not kept her en
gagement w m to-day proved to her father
as he eutered the liulu parlor of bis resi
dence and found tlin cat Its sole occupant
save thn goldfish in the globe, for which
Grimalkin wa evidently preparing to make
a fishing excursion. Kor this purpose, ap
parently, it leaped upon a chair at the Hide
of the g as. Tin flsh showed sU'ns of con
sciousness of the cat's approach, but no
fear, On the contrary, It nibbed Its nose
against the glass and splashed its tail In ths
water as if to attract the cat's attention.
The goldfish came to the sur
face blowing a manner whlcli Mr.
Brlnkerhoff characterizes as Impatient.
r,on this the cat, raislug Itself on the edge
of the bowl, reached over. The fish swam
irently directly under it when the cat softly
stioked iu hack, purring meanwhile with
great contentment. The fish, however,
seemed still unsat-isfled, and darting aw ay
from its strange companion, swam r ip. I ' y
about the bowl, and then s night the bot
tom. The cat remained in this posi
tion as if puled. Saurtly afterward tlio
fish cime to the surface again and snap
ped at a fly which was crossing the water
and rested, -after having done so, on the
edge of tbi bowl, Thn cat, seeming to
appreciate the itiiiion, with a single
swllt ntovemenl caught the fly and dropped
It into the mouth uf its finny friend. The
latter then submitted contentedly to the
back-stretching endearment which it had
before resented. Mr. Brinkerboff ascer
tained ft 'out bis little girl that the strange
companionship ha 1 existed for some weeks,
hut she had feared to tell of it, as her neg
ligence had allowed Its formation.

A Touuir Wife Poison Herself, and
Kepcnta Too l.ate.
New York, Oct. 16. Mrs. Amanda
Meyers, 18 years old, committed suicide by
taking poison on Sunday night at No. 681
Monroe street, Brooklyu. She lingered
until veMerday morning when she died.
Some lime had elapsed after her death bo
fore it was known to what cause It was due,
then it was ascertained that she bad taken a
dc.se of poison known us "Rough on Rats. " '
Tbe sequel will show that the lady either
took a dose to frighten her husband or be
cati-e she was laboring under a temporary
aberration of tbe mind. Mrs. Meyera at
the lime of her death had been married
nearly two years. Her husband, Charles
K. Meiers, is a salesman with Crandell &
G'.alc. No. 2U Duane street, this city,
t in Sunday night, on Ids return fromabriel
absence, she called hitu to her, saving,
'Charley, I have taken poison: I am sorry
for it; won't you get mo something to
take? ' Tbe young husband was startled
and did not believe his wife, althosueli he
knew that she was subject to flu of depres
sion. The girl wife then complained of
pain in the stomach, and groaned so that
tier husband knew she was in pain. He at
tempted ti soothe her, and realized that
she told the truth. On the mantel was a
box of poison; the box was half empty,
"My God. what bavo you douc?" said
"I did not mean to do it; run for a doc
tor." "Mr. Meyer? then hurried to the coruei
of Rcitl and Gales avenues, Juet around the
corner, to the pharmacy ot Charles Wright
lie asked tor some mustard, and It was
given him. He went back and admiutsterei
at'oseof hot water and mustard. It did
not relieve tier, and then Meyers ran for a
doctor. Dr. JobCorbld, of No. 943 Gates
avenue, was the nearest within call, but
w hen he arrived the poor girl was beyond
A correspondent visited the residence of
tho .Meyers ' last ninht. It is a two-story
house. They occupy the upper rooms Im
mediately over tbe parlors. Upoa ringing
the bell a mau of medium height, with
fair complexlou and cold, steel blue eyes,
answered. He was Mr. Meyers and was
very phlegmatic. He immediately ibowcd
the way to tbe second -story back room,
where ho told tbe following story:
"We have boo u married not quite two
years, it was a love match. Prior to the
marriage niv wife was subject, at intervals,
to tits t i a. s;ioiiduiicy, which becamo more
marked after we had been married about
three months. I then consulted some ol
tho eminent physidaus iu New York. Tbey
all agreed that it was a trival matter, and
would wear off in time. These fits of de
pression bncame chronic, ee much so that
it was remarked by my friends. I wuut out
for a walk on Sunday Dig hi, and when
returned I fouad my wife In paiu. She
told me that she had lakeu poison, and thai
I must save her. Kuowtng as I did that
she was despondent I did not believe it,
I finally saw that she was in pain, aud I then
ran to Wrlicht's drug store. I there obtained
some mustard, which I administered. It
gave her no relief "I then ran for Dr. Cor
bin, but he arrived loo late to save her.
She died in my arms."
"Do you know the cause of ber des
pondency f" askrd tee reporter.
"Yes, she was despondent because she
had no children. "
In tbe front room lay tbe body of the
dead woman. Tbo features wero those ol
what must in life, have been most beautiful.
