Mr. r.DiToi' Mote than ten days
ago '.he newspaper of tin's town in
formed u- that one Annie Allen,
called "Cornish Annie," had. en the
night previous, thrown vitrol on the
face of one Georije Berryman, thereby
greatly injuring his face and probably
causing the lo- of his only eyo.
Now, though it is not my style, or
wish, to defend Mi Allen in a news
paper article. 1 can veil say that, ex
cept Berryman and Mi's Allen, then
is but o:is poison who knows whether
Miss Allen ccininittcd an offeife or
merely defended hetself from a brutal
assault, and that person has kept his
mind to himself and is apt to do so
until the psoper time. Yet, notwith
standing', at least, one newspaper im
mediately tried, convicted and sen
tenced Mi.s Allen, and, as appears by
what is hereafter related, District At
torney Savage and County Physician
Willis have constituted themselves
the exeeutioneis of the sentence.
3Ii.-.- Allen was committed to the
county jail by City Recorder Clum,
and, after hearing the testimony of
one witness, the Recorder continued
the hearing to await the recovery of
Berryman, who was suffering from tint
effects of the vitiol, and Miss Allen
continued in jail. The Recorder ap
pointed yesterday to resume the hear
ing, but, by foment of counsel, it was
postponed to 10 a. m. to-day. During
all this time, counsel for Miss Allen
had several interviews with her, and
found her suffering from nervous ex
haustion and other maladies beyond
his comprehension, and sought our
the county physician and requested
him to visit the patient and prescribe
for her. But, whother for the reason
that this gentleman's salary is not de
pendent on his earning it, or that
Mis? Allen belongs to a class of unfor
tunates with wh'ii h his purity cannot
hear contact, or that be put full faith
in the trial, conviction and sentence
of the Record-Epitaph, he failed to
visit the patient, and at 10 o'clock
this morning Miss Allen pleaded that
she wa too sick, weakly and nervous
to walk from the County Jail to the
City Hall; and, thereupon, that
"illustrious jurist," that "bulwark of
virtue and terror" to all evil doers,
Distrkt Attorney Savage, informed
tho Recorder that this tickness was a
sham, that he knew the facts, etc., etc.,
and the prisoner mu.-t appear. The
Rceotdcr, to satisfy himself, caused
the County I'hytieian to visit Miss
Allhi in ifcil. who thereupon repriUd
(as th: Recorder says) that the:e was
nothing the matter with her that
could interfere with the examination,
and th" oiliccr was ordeied to bring

I am satisfied that neither of these

to cause such suffering wilfully and
shamefully. But he who teeks an
office and enjoys the liberal salary
thereof and, through ignorance, care,
lessness or negligence, in the per
formance of its duties causes the suf

to me, immeasurely beneath Annie

A. team that has b"en worked to
gether and has not been injured or
abused by overloading, will draw a
third more with less strain than a
team not accustomed to the work or
each other. And here too many fann
ers make a mistake. A number of
horses are kept, and are worked to
gether, as occasion seems to demand,
without any partieular regard as to
wize and strength. A good horseman
will, as far as possible, work the same
horses together, and in thr same posi
tion, whether two, three, four or six
horses constitute the team, and this
practice soon enables them to draw
more with the same team than if they
wero constantly shifted about. Then
the teams are trained, and in an
emergency can be depended upon
much farther than when they are not
accustomed to pull together.

Mr. Editok Whe Congress con
venes and the members who have
bien absent from Wurhington during
the summer return, they will doub'-lc-ss
be suiprissd at the change which
has taken placo both upon the interior
and the surroundings of tho Capitol.
Congress, at ' its last session, made n
very libetal appropriation to be used
I in the construction of maiblc terraces
at the ends cf the building and for
commencing w rk upon tho rand
staircase at the west fiont. Work was
commenced in March, and has con
tinued without intermission during
the entire season. The ten aces are
being built of white marble, and will
bo about fifteen feet in hught, sur
mounted by a substantial marble rail
ing, and when compleU-d will add
to the appearance of the
building, as seen from the west front.
The- ttrnu-i upon the 'north end is
nearly finished, while work upon that,
at the south end is well un ler waj ,
and ground has been broken upon the
site of the staircase. 'I lie interior of
tho building has been thoioughly reno
vated, and many of the moms have
been repainted and frescoed.
As the s-aso:i b drawing to a. close
the contiKctors in charge of ths work
upon various government buildings in
course of construction arc- availing
themselves of tho advantages affuided
by the fine autumnal weather, and
work is being pushed rapidly forw.ud.
The new Statu, War and Navy De
partment building, the corner stone of
which was laid in March, 1&7' is
rapidly approaching completion. With
the eveetition of short delays occa
sioned by lack of granite in sufficient
quantities 'o ktep the workmen hu?y,
the work has progressed steadily since
its commencement. The south wing
was completed in 1S7J5, and was at
once occupied by the officials of the
State Department. When tho cast
wing was finished it was occupied by
the Navy Depaitui nt, as was also the
i north wing by th Yv'ar Department,
when two years later it was declared
ready for occupancy. When com
pleted the building will have 'coft a
very large sum, the appropriations
toward it having already amounted to
several millions of dollars. The build
ing is 128 feet in height, :U2 feet in
width and fifiT feet in length. The
basement and lower portion have been
constructed of granite from Fox Is
land, Maine, while the superstructure
h of granite from the quarries upon
tho James rivtir, six miles above Bich
mond, Va. When finished it will
without doubt be the handsomest offi
cial building in the woild.
An effort is being made by the War
Department to have the various mili-
Eolidation as ara the white organiza
tions. Serious charges have been preferred
against the management of the train
ing school of the Signal Corps at Fort
Myer, and an investigation has been
ordered, which may result in the
abolition of the station, or in the
transfer of its management from the
War to the civil authorities.
The annual report of the Board of
Commisioners of the Soldiers' I Ionic
has ju-t been given to the public.
According to this report there has
been a very great increase in drunken
ness among tho inmates during the
year, tho cause for which is said to be
due to the existing law for the dis
position of pension money of inmates.
A bout .11 0,000 is paid quarterly to tin
treasurer of the Home, from which
the pensioners are permitted lo draw
small sums from time to time. Much
of the money thus drawn finds its
way info the grog-shops in the vicinity
of the Home. Such is the law as it
at present oxists. It is' to be hoped
that in defense of tho interests of tho
Home that Congress may bo able to
correct this evil.
It is probable that the clerks in the
Treasury Department will in thp
future be at their desks promptly at 9
o'clock. On Friday morning last upon

The hb..d suit of llev. Pi: Hick
against the livening Star Publishing
Company, for $35,000, has been occu
pying the attention of the Circuit
Court during the week. Dr. Ilicka
was tho pa-.tor of the Tabernacle, in
this city, when Guiteau, the a.'sassin,
was hung, a:d he was tho assassin's
spiritual adviser. The i.lleged libil
consists iu the publici.tiou of an in

Ouiteau's boiie-s to the Medical

were closed, and the jury, after a
hoit deliberation, returned a. verdict,
against tics defendant for one cent.
In Ari.ona, the 'i'eiiitory over which
a former Jersey man lias lecently
been made ;.-ernor, there is a town
called Tombstone. In that, town a
paper i.- published wearing the "siipet
fluously - ledumbut" name of the
Bocoid-Kpitaph. Its front hah" was
lecently added. Its old name, epitaph,
is sufficient and appropriate. Wo
will call it the Fpitaph for conveni
ence. The F.pitaph is occasionally
pleased to he gravely humorous. An
opportunity offered itself in Iloboken
news a week or so ago, and the Fpi
taph cracked a grim joka at- the ex
pense of "tli4 high court of Hobokon."
Had this "voice from the tomb"
reached us sooner, perhaps wo would
have given the court the benefit of the
joke. But now 'requieseat in pace,"
(the joke, not Lhe court). We must,
however, say to tlie Bpitaph that had
it known all the ciicumstanccs of tho
case, it would have advised Western
methods of dealing with this prisoner
instead of waiting for the "high court
of Hobokon to adjudicate the vital
quetion." The race of that particu
lar prisoner was of lhe sert that tho
good people of Arizona would ptob
ably con-ider lit only for extermina
