Katabllahed in 181, the F.CLECTICeatera nllh
the January numlwr upon the tvtenty-elglith year
of Its existence. Thia fact alone speaks much for
the character of the publication, for no magazine
could have lived an long amid the tierce rivalry
and competition to whirh it has been subjected
without possessing thigh degree of merit and
meeting a well-defined want; but it Is not too
much to say that, during nil Ihesn year, the EC
LECTIO has been recognized as theablest expo
nent in America of that vast Intellectual activity
which finds exprpaaion in the periodical liternturo
of Europe. The plan of the KCLK0T1O is to se
lect from the field thus outlined, all those arti
cles. Essays. Heviews. Tales. Htorles. and Illo.
graphical Sketches, which are likely to prove en
tpitalniog, instructive and permanently valuable ;
and it comment; itself especially to that groat
may 01 intelligent, readers wno seeK prom lis well
as amusement In solid nnd healthful literature.
Ilesides the longer articles, which themselves
represent every variety of subjects, the K-dectlc
has five editorial departments Literary Notices,
Foreign Literary Koten, Science, Art, Bad Varie
ties. Tho volumes for 1872 will not be less attractive
than thoe which preceded them. With merit

ANOTIIKItOini..
In cue uf the ficnll towns not many
miios from Cairo, on tho lino of tho Illi
nois Central railroad, thcro lived, until re
cently, a young lady about eighteen years
of age, who, because the man to whom she
was engaged to bo married, deserted her
and married another young lady. Out of
respect for the friends of the parties to
this sad occurrence, we chull mention no
names.
Tho particulars of tho story, in detailed
to U8,a3 near as wo can recollect, are as
follows; About a year ago tho young lady
roferred to was living with her parents a
short distance from tho vlllugo of .
Sho was being waited upon by a young
man who, at the timo, was engaged in
business in town. Their friendship for
each other day by day grow stronger un
til in tho couro of time it ripened into
genuine love at least on tlio part of tho
young girl. Thus matters stood for a
time, and the young man offered to mako
her his partner in lifo. Of courso tho
proposition sho readily accepted. From
this time forward sho was happy, because
(ho possessed the lovo of ono whom sho
hold dearer than all clso worldly, as
tho sequel will show. After tt while,
however, tho man for whom sho
cared so much told her thnt ho must part
with her for a time, as ho was compelled
to go to his former homo in Ohio on im
portant business. She believed In him, and
although it was hard to bo separated)
If it was necessary sho would not object.
Ho left tho vlllogo nnd wont to Ohio. For
a whllo he wrote to her rogularly, and all
was well. A short timo since, howovor,
whon tho day on which tho should havo
received a lotto r from him arrived, Bhe
went to tho postofflce, and instead of a lot
tor, she rocolvod a papor containing a no-
tlcoof tho marriage of her fnlthloss lover
to n young lady arhls homo in Ohio,
Tlio poor, dlstractod girl wont homo, read
tho notice over, and In less than two days,
was a raving maniac. Sho Is now In this
city, and although every effort has been
made to restore her to her reason, she Is as
crazy at evor, with little hopo of ever
being bolter.

Tito many friends und ncqiinlntanccs In
this city of Mr. F. M. Morklc, the piano
tuner, havo become thoroughly alarmed
nthls mysterious, disappearance. About
two months ago, ono ovoning Mr. M. wont
heme at tho usual cupper hour; nothing
umiiunl wu noticed nt thatimc, ho appear
ing to be as well and in as good spirits as
was uiual with him. After supper he
went down street nndstoppod nt Ilannon's
book store, whero ho remained chatting
with tliojo about the establishment a good
portion of the ovening. From the time
ho left -Mr. Harmon's store to tho present
day he has not been seen or hoard from.
If ho intended to Icavo town, ho failed to
mention tho fact to any one, so far as is
known. That ho loft tho cily, howovor,
docs not teem probable, for all his winter
clothing are yntnt -Mrs. Schuh's, at who4o
houso ho inado his homo ; and that he had
any causo for leaving the city quietly, is
nut believed. So far as his friends have
been ablo to ascertain he
was Indebted to nobody.
Mr. Mcrklo had engagements wit'i n largo
number of persons In this city to keep
their pianos in tune, for which ho received
ton dollars a year per instrument. Ho
sides these, ho had engagements of a stmi
lar naluro at Mound City, Dongola, Cob
den, nnd other places. Hardly u day
posses that letters for Mr. M., addressed to
tlio care of Mr. Hannon, nro not received,
nnd inquiries by porsons desiring his ser
vices nro constantly being tnnde. Whut
has become of tho missing man? Does
any 0110 know, and will they tell? Who
will speak?
A LIVELY CHASE,
On Sunday afternoon a man by tho
nnmo of Otto Keller, went aboard Iho
steamer Alaskn, then lying at the wharf,
and unobserved entered tho captain's room
nnd stolo therefrom n pair of pants, a vest
and several other articles of value. The
theft was soon discovered, and mado known
to Marshal Cain. The marshal immedi
ately set about working up tho case,
nnd it was not long until he
saw n fellow carrying a bundle, who he at
onco "dropped on" ns tho nuthor of the
robbery. Keeping a cloio watch over tho
stranger, tho marshal followed him for
several blocks and at last cornered him
in tho saloon on Commercial avenue, be
tween Eleventh nnd Twelfth street. The
marshal accosted him and charged him
with tho crime, nnd at the same timo
placed him under arrest. They started
down town nnd near tlio corner
of Eleventh street his thiefshin
broko awny and attempted to escape. Mar
shul Cain guvo fha.se, at the snmo time
drawing his revolver nnd ordering him to
stop; but as the rascal paid 110 attention
to tho command, tho marshal fired one
shot at him, which had no other effect than
tu cause the thief to double his speed. Pel-

THE GILBERT SISTERS,
The Athcnciiin was crowded niralu last

Jickot of Leavo Man,'' by tho
Gilbert troupe. MIm Katie Gilbert
appeared as Sam Wlllotigbby, a
character stMch sho suftaincd in a
manner to win tho applause of every
ono present. In fact, evorv character
represented in tho play wns noblv ren
dered, nnd whero nil did bo well It is hard
to individualize. This company has now
given our peoplo threo porformnncci.
which havo been enough to demonstrate
that It is tho cquul, If not tho superior of
any troupe that has come among us for
years. This being tho case, it Is to be
hoped that somo means will bo dovlsed by
which tnoy may bo Induced to
remain with us nt least three or four weeks
To-night August Daly's great New York
actuation, entitled " Under tho Gas
Light," will bo performed, with Mils Ka

is a good ono and wis not fall to draw a full
