Several days ago a man named Lambert
Borden came down the Ohio river in a lit
tle old covered fl t boat and anchored in
front of the box factory. He was not well
and probably stopped here in or ler to re
gain health before proceeding further down
the river. Very little was known ot him, as
he remained on his boat ne rly all the time.
But yesterday morning it was found that
his boat had sunk the night before and it
is thought that he went down with it and
was drowoed, though hiB body could not
be found. Where he came tmm is not
known. His boat and effects are still lying
where he anchored when became-

Hunter, on .Seventeenth street, on Monlay
evening, ana taking tneretrom a trunK con
taining, among other things, one hundred
liars in money. Brown was arreted
only on suspicion. No ono saw him perpe
trate the burglary and no one saw the prop
erty in his possession. Yet since the arrest
the officers have woven a thick web "f nr-
cumstancos around, which is likely to "hoi 1
him over," if not prove him actually g'li ty
and thejweb was growing more dense at Ut
accounts. He was j iiled and wdll be exam

A white man In passing the dry goods
store of Messrs. J. and L. Burger Monday
evening deliberately jerked a lady's cloak
from a rack and quietly walked away with
it while several boys sat by and looke 1 on.
The loss of the cloak was discovered soon
after by the employes of the store, and the
officers were notified. A few hours search
resulte I in the fin llncr ot the cloak at
Jennie Warren's domicile on Ohio leven,
near Twelfh street, where the thief had
left it. Not long after the thief hmi-elf
W'S .arrested by Chief Myers and Constable
Haz. Martin, on Ohio levee. He was an
Irishman, about forty years of age, named
James Sheridan. He came here from Chi
cago a day or two ago. He acknowledged
taking the cloak arid leaving it with Jennie
Warran to be called for by him at some fu
ture time. He was taken to the city jail
and will be preliminarily examined to-day.
R"P irts from various large postoffices
in the country show that there has been a
lar.'e percentage of increase in the number
of letters sent over previous months and
corresponding periods, since the introduc
tion of the docreased rate. The increase in
circulars is not so marked, owing to the
fact that many firms prefer to send their
circulars sealed, and they arc thereby classed
as letters. It is not improbable that the
postoffico will bo a gainer instead of a loser
by the reduction, and that the next step
will be to make drop letter postage in cities

One of the boldest thefts we have bjen
called upon to record for some time was
perpetrated in this city Mod
day night. Two or more men
deliberately walked up to tho front
oi Mr. Samuel Burger's clothing house while
no one was immediately arotiud, hurried
ly stripped the dummies of two overcoats
and a dress coat, and walked on up the
street with the clothos hanging over their
arms and disappeared before the theft was
noticed by anyone. It was not long, how
ever, before the loss waB discovered and the
alarm given, and the entire police torce of
the city posted and set to work to trace up
the thieves. The only clue there was to
start with was a description of the stolen
goods, and as these were probably put out
of sight by the thieves as soon as possible
it required some fine detective work to
track the thieves. Up t J last night no ar
rests had been made, though some of the
officers had s une seemingly well founded
suspicions as to who the guil'y parties w ere.
The proposed establishment of a uni
form method of computing time will fur
nish the standard time not only to the
British Islands, as now, but to France as
well; Central Europe will take its time
lrotn the meridian of fifteen degrees east,
about midway between Berlin and Vienna,
and Eastern Europe from St. Petersburg.
Coining west one meridian passes through
Iceland, and second through the Az ires,
and so on until we reach the meridian of
seventy-flvo degrees west of Greenwich,
which is nearly that of Philadelphia. Pliil
adelphii time, therefore, is to regulate all
the railroads of the Atlantic seaboard
without any local variations. The next
standard meridian is that of New OrleanE,
or Utile east of St. Louis; next is that of
Denver, and a fourth is the line between
Nevada and California. Another fifteen
degrees takes us into tho Pacific. Four
standards of time only will thus prevail
over the whole United Stites, respectively,
