On attempting to open tho safe of the
snag-boat, Joo. N. Macomb, yestorday
morning, the officers fouud a broken key

It was thought that some ono bad robbed
tho safe and then broken tho key off, or
bad broken it in attempting to effect an en
tranceprobably the latter. The safe con
tained sonio money, but not not a very
large amount. A locksmith was sent for,
but we failed to learn the result of his ex

Lltllo Bessio Ford was slezod with
diphtheria laBt Tuesday night. Mrs. Ford
immediately applied sulphur to the affect
ed parts. She used the dry sulphur, blow
ing it through a goose quill on the white
blisters In tho throat and it the root of the
tonguo, thereby causing them to dry up
and scale off. She also usod pulverized al
um with a swab to cleanse out the ropes of
phlegm. The child ii bow well, with the
exception of a Utile hoarseness, without the
aid of a physician. We also understand
thatalitlljboy of Mr. John Thistlewood
was cured of this disea'e, by the applica

It ) really a pit that our people
should fuol dijpowu tojudgoof the merits
of a theatrical ontortuiumeut before having
seen it, or that u many will listen to the
croaking of a few smart Alecks who al
ways know in bdvauce that a coming op
eratic or theatrical entertainment is a fraud,
or snide, or that it is not the "original
company." This credulity is frequently
the means of thuir being deprived of the
pleasure of witnessing many really first-
class meritorious entertainments. As an
illustration, the Cullender Miiibtrcls wiil

Thursday night, but had the rial merits of
tho perform inco been generally known,
tho hall would have hardly held the people.
The entertainment win, perhaps, the best

The singing and dancing, the drilling, and
espicially Ihe Iiyer SiBler:', in operatic fie
luctjon, were about beyond criticieui, and
wero highly appreciated by the hudo nce.
The croakers were downed, sure, this time,
as tliey have often been before, but what is
most to be regretted, they were the means
of keeping away many who really delight
in good music. The croakers, of course.
