The Department of State has re
ceived from the U. S. Consul at Cura
eoa, Dutch West Indies, an account of
the terrible hurricane which swept over
that island on the 24th of September.
The loss of property Is estimated at $2,
000,C(!0. The loss of life could not be
estimated at the date of the Consul's
writing, but was undoubtedly large. In
the city of Curacoa many of tho most
. solid structures were crushed as if they
had been things of paper, by the waves
which rolled upon them mountains high
yind many persons were buried in the
tuins. People who were rich were made
paupers in an hour. The planters sutler

being strewn with uprooted trees and
wrecks of nil sorts. A number of ves
sels were also damaged.
Ti-itTtA Hautk, Jnd., October 31. A
horrible murder was committed last
night near Sandford station on the In
dianupolis and St, Louis railroad, nt the
residence of Burgoyne Tritt, a wealthy
farmer. His daughter Rosa has been
the object of attentions from a young
man in the neighborhood and also from
Sylvanus Burnham, n hired man who
lias been in the employ of Tritt three
years. On Sunday evening Rosa's lover
paid her a visit which resulted in n quar
rel with Burnham nnd he threatened
her, saying he would get even with his
rival. Last night the old folks were
awakened by n light, and it was found
the upper story of the house was on lire
and Ikij'iihaiu missing. The house was
columned. The corpso of Rosa was
found in the ruins with her legs, arms
and head burned oil-, but there was
enough evidence to show that the girl's
throat had been cut. She also had a
deep wound in her side. Burnham is

S. E. CUpper, dinned a man lingering
around tho locomotive, but paid no
particular attention to him. On reach
ing Mill Ceetk the same person was dis
covered by engineer Geo. Smith lying
between the frame nnd braces of the
engine, with ids hatless head resting up
on the hot steam chest, one arm thrown
nround the brace rod, body lying across
slender irons, and feet projecting out
upon the pilot. He was ordered off, but
being rather slow to move, and fearing
the person was hurt, ho was assisted
from his dangerous position by the
engineer and fireman, and found to be
a well-dressed German, very much iu
toxieattd. How in the name of all
that's good a drunken man rode a dis
tance of eighteen or nineteen miles in
such a perilous position on a thunder
ing, rattling, Jarring modoo without
meeting with death is a miracle.
A Train Lifted from the Track by tho Wind.
Salt Lakh City, Utah, October ill).
A passenger train on tho Utah Central
railroad, coining south, was lifted from
tho track and turned upside down by
tho wind when near Fnrmlngtou this
noon. Two passenger ears and n baggago
ear turned over nnd tho coals from the
stoves scattered through tho ears, hut

won done. Several persons were badly
hurt, Imt are expected to recover.
A Mystery that Puzzles tho Police.
Tho police of the Sixteenth district are
now engaged in unravelling a mystery
shrouding the disappearance of n man
from tho Pennsylvania railroad depot on
Sunday night. This mnn arrived on the
Niagara Ex press, and arranged with Mr.
Jtlley to get him a carriage to take lUm
to tho Bingham House. Mr. Jtlley took
hlin to the sitting-room while ho secured
his baggage, nnd going back to get tho
stranger found that he was not there.
He has not been seen since, and Mr.
Jtlley has his trunks and bags. Jty order
of theClilefof Police, Lieutenant Brown,
of tho Sixteenth district police, exam
ined the baggage, which consisted prin
cipally of new clothing. Two pairs of
pants had the watch fobs cut out. Tho
fobs probably contained a name. Tho
strap on a vest, which had evidently
contained a nanio on the Inside, was cut
out. Only two pieces were not cut.
These had tho names of " I. S. I lub
ber" ami 1 1. S. Gardner'' on straps so
concealed as to have probably been over
looked, in the trunk ho found a very
tine lot of llshing-tackle, valued at about
sixty dollars, an opera glass, revolver
and cartridges, a new pair of boots, never
worn, stockings, collars, etc., all new.

Washington, D. C, Oct. HO, 1877.
After all, the pressing business of tho
country tho distressing need of Congres
sional legislation upon mutters already too
long postponed, nru not as important as u
horse race. Witness kisti Wednesday when
throe-fourths of our lionoiablo Souators im
paired to Baltimore to seo tho races, tlio
Honato having ndjouriicd over that clay for

A certain institution, well-known nt the
Capital for the last decade, is about to bo
closed, let us hope, forever. It is tho
"Soldiers' and Sailors' Orphans' Home."
Having giown out of tho issues of tho war,
the inmates have now nearly all of thera
arrived at tho ago prescribed for thoir bo
ing cared for and there is no longer a ne
cessity for tho continuance of the charity
thnt founded tho institution. As tho
orphans reach the ago of 10 years, good
homes or trades are provided for thorn, and
they go out into tho world to depend there
after upou themselves for support.
Mr. Henry Adams (son of Charles Francis
Adams) is about establishing himself in a
homo in our midst. From tho foundation
of Washington until 1870, some member
of tho Adams family rosidod hero. John
Adams was the first President who lived in
the White House, moving therein 1800.
John Quiucy Adams' homo was in Wash
ington for 40 years while ho solved as
Senator, Secretary of State, President and
lleprcsentativo in Congress. Mrs. John
Adams, widow of Charles Francis' elder
brother, died here in 1870.
Most men like to bo conspicuous in somo
way or another, but tho Hon. Stanley
Matthews can hardly be said to relish tho
Btato of notoriety into which ho has fallen.
Quite an excitement over matters concern
ing him prevailed last week, and every vis
itor at tho Capital stretched his neck to
got a viow of tho horo or asked persons
about them to point him out fur thoir edifi
cation. All tho whilo ho sat quietly nt his
desk, trying to appear unconscious that bo
was being eye-glassed to such au extent, but
apparently containing somewhat of muillod
rago. It was all on account of a published
statement that cx-Sccietary Chaudler was
compelled to pay Matthews' hotel bill
whil" tho latter was hero last spring before
the Electoral Commission. Tho reporter
who published the account, hearing the
next moruing that tho Senator was indig
nant about it, presented himself to him to
explain the matter, but Mr. Matthews met
him with the words, " you're a liar and a
scoundrel," and would havo no more to
say to tho hapless scribbler ; whereupon
tho latter letaliated by stating to the pub
lio through tho medium of a leading New
York paper, that he had given the
exact truth, that tho hotel bill amounted to
some uhie hundred dollars, and that ho
could prove it by Chief Justice Carter,
Judge Edmunds, Shepherd and others,
adding : "If Mr. Matthews wishes to make
any further denials of this matter, a copy
of the disputed bill itself will be printed
with an item of two hundred cr more for
carriage hire, and others of a similar ex-
trnvngant character." Mr. Evarts' bill
was about ft, 100 and Mr. Stoiighton's the
same ; and the truth of (lie whole matter Is
that they nil appeared bo Core tho Commis
sion without charge, and their expenses
whilo hero were paid by tho Government.
Much attention Is paid the preserva

All the ashes taken from tho Model I too in

ognlznblo part, or piece of models are pre.
served ; so that, in nil cases whoro it is
possible from whnt Is left to restore tho

expense. It Is hoped, by Intelligent exam

Senator Morton still remains very low.
He Is said to have eaten almost, noth

Court Procceiliiins- When tho crowd
gathered in the Court lloom nt tho ring
ing of the hell on Monday afternoon, it
found nil tho Judges present, and the
various olllccrs of the Court at their
posts. The prompt and quiet maimer
in which the preliminary work at the
opening of tho Court was dispatched,
Indicated that tl week of business wuh
The list of Constables was called nnd
tifler being sworn, their returns were re
ceived and Hied. A larger number of
(hand Jurors than usual responded and
expressed a willingness to serve, when
the roll was called. After being sworn
and receiving tho usual charge, Judge
Juukin announced that thero was yet
another matter of Importance to the
public, which could not be longer over
looked, and that was the frightful chap

After transacting somo miscellaneous
business, which will be given next week
the trial list was taken up.
Tho first case in which a jury was
called was that of (leo. Zlnn, Adm. of
Amelia Hilbish, dec 'd. vs. J no. A. Hil
bish. This was nn notion to test the
validity of a judgment nolo given by
deft, to his mother, Mrs. Amelia Hilbish
for the sum of $ . Deft, it seems gave
the note in question to prevent his wife
from whom lie was subsequently divorc
ed, from creating debts for which he
would beeonip liable. After Ililhish was
divorced from ills wife ids mother died,
and the Judgment still remained unsat
isfied. He nimle application to tho
Court, had the Judgment opened and on
the trial proved that his mother had de
clared in her lifetime that there was
nothing duo her upon the judgment.
The jury believed there was no fraud in
tho transaction, and that thero was noth

Lewis W. Deach vs. Jacob Stoufl'er
was nn notion brought by plfl'. to recov
er a bill of $50 for services rendered to
the wife of deft. 11 II". is a physician
who had lost his diploma, but gave sat
isfactory evidence of his professional
training. Deft's. wife was an Invalid
whom it was alleged the Doctor was to
cure by contract, nnd" no cure no pay,"
but after taking largo prescriptions of
milk weed, smart weed, &o., they wero
led to mistrust the Doctor's diagnosis of
tlio case. Another physician was called
in and soon the patient's pulse grew
stronger, whilo along with her conva
lescence came a determination to dispute
the llrst Doctor's bill. After delibera
ting for some time, tho jury rendered n
verdict for plfl". of $9. Sponsler for plfl".
Melntiro for deft.
Tho next case was M. B. Spahr vs.
Barbara K. Baker ami John D. Baker.-
Deft, gave to plfl". a mortgage to secure
the price of a bill of storo goods, and
afterwards denied liability on grounds
that wero technical rather than upon
the merits of iho ease. The Court in
structed the jury that none of the legal
positions taken by the defense weie
tenable, ami that they should find for
plfl". the amount of tho mortgage. Ver

Jacob Brandt vs. Daniel Power was
next on the list. Here deft, claimed two

On Wednesday morning the Criminal
cases were taken up. The first prisoner
brought in was George Gibson. This
was the mnn who burned tho barn of
David Dunkelberger, in Spring town
ship, some time since. He seems to
have been an old offender. I le changes
names to suit localities, nnd it is known
thnt ho has been in the Penitentiary
and County Jails at different times here
tofore. His story was that a man named
Jim Gruhum, who had a spite against
Mr. Dunkelberger, met him in Cumber
land county, gave him $12,00 and in
structed him to come ucross the moun
tain nnd burn the barn, threatening nt
the same time to take his life if he d!d
not carry out the Instructions. The
mnn is evidently of unsound mind but
too dangerous a character to be at large.
Under the instructions of counsel lie
plead guilty, and appealed to the mercy
of the Court. Sentenced to h years Im
prisonment In tho lOastern Penitentiary.

guilty of Assault and Buttery and the
Court sentenced him to pay a lino of
$5,00 and costs. Dlst. Attorney Mc
Allister for Com. Burnett for Deft.
The case of (join, vs Dr. Michael l'rlco
was next called, and defendant plead not
guilty to a charge of assault and battery
on Westly Morrison. The deft, appears
to bo a kind of universal genius who has
figured as n physician, lawyer, teacher,
patent-right man, labor reform advocate,
horticulturist, ifco. During the summer
ho undertook tho charge of a truck patch
belonging to prosecutor's father, and
farmed it with skill nnd care until some
1 1 1 no In the fall, when It was charged ho
forsook the legitimate business of raising
cabbage, and undertook toralsea riniiun
with tho proprietor's son, whom ho
found eating grapes In tho lot. The
stories of prosecutor and defendant were
cont radictory of each other, nnd the jury
found a verdict of not guilty, nnd that
each party pay half of the costs. Dlst

Com. Selbert for deft.
The case of the Com. vs. Lucinn I'ugo
and Sarah Jane I'age, charge felonious
assault, was called. It seems that as the
prosecutrix, Mrs. Matilda.). Peck, wns
passing through a lane belonging to deft,
on an expedition for huckleberries, they
set upon her, and Mrs. Page seizing her
violently by tlio capillary growth upon
the summit of her cranium, pulled her
to the ground, and then und there dis
arranged certain portions of the feminine
toilet, with which the other sex are not
encumbered. J t seems to have been ex
clusively a battle between tho Amazons
in which they first fought at long rungo
with slug, then stones, ami at last grap
pled with each other, when the personal
jiowers of Mrs. Page enabled her to
achieve the above stated result. As her
husband was present, the Court instruct
ed that Mrs. Page could not be found
guilty. A verdict of guilty was render
ed against Luchm Pago, and the Court
directed bolh parties, prosecutor nnd de
fendants, to cuter into recognizance for
good behavior. Bnrnct und District At
torney McAllister for Com., Sponsler for
Com. vs. Barnerd f Irneffe, was a charge
of surety of the peaeeon oath ofSolomon
(hisler. The Court seemed to think
that if Barney had sinned he also had
been sinned rfigalnst, and the complaint
wasdisniissed, and tho county directed
to pay costs.
Com. vs. Solomon fJusler, was a com
panion case to the above, mid dealt with
In the same manner.
Tho following bills wero ignored by
the grand jury: Com, vs. Isaac Orwan,
charge assault and battery; Com. vs. J.
Calvin Nipple, charge producing and at
tempting to produce abortion ; Com. vs.
David Bower, oharno selling liquor to
minors. True bills were found against
Nancy K. Gutshall, indictment fornica
tion; JCobert Yv. JiOtig, iiiil t. tornica'
tion and bastardy, and Wm. Wcldon,
ind't. fornication nnd basturdy.
The criminal trials then being ended
the civil list was resumed. The first
case called on Wednesday evening was
that or Anna It. iOlliott vs. Jir. Wm.
Cisna. This was an action for breach
of promise made by deft, to marry the
pl'll". The action was a novel one in our
county, nnd created an unusual interest.
After u jury wns called and the case
opened by tho pl'll'., court ndjourned un

Mrs. Fenn who was a married woman,
gave a mortgage to plfl'. upon her sepa
rate real estate for the purpose of getting
money to pay certain debts of her son
Jas. V. Fenn. The question raised here
was as to tho validity of a mortgage giv

ly mentioned in the married woman's
net of Assembly of 1848. As it wns pure
