Michabl Davitt In his London paper, the Lahr World, prefers serious charges against Sir. IIoahx, British Consul General at New York. The cbarge are that Uoaxk had an re Usury la the service of the New York post riSee who, in collusion with a man named Nkwoomhk, tampered with the walls, opening letters addressed to men MMpeeted of conspiracy against the JlrilUb Government, and writing decoy letters purporting to eonae from Fenian leaders for the purpose of incriminating the reolpteau. These charges should be rigidly investigated, and If found true, Mr. IIoamk sbuld be kicked out of the eeuntry, sad his emissary la the pottaWce and the emlseary's pal should lie efeppsd into prison for a term of VMM.

The newspapers spoke of him as "the Prince of the House of Sprngwe." This flfm w the largest manufacturer of cotton In the United States. Governor William Ppragrte had bnllt the li.twl somen ctmntry bonse then on this shle ot the Atlantic. The bnlldlng ami c rounds were popnlarly stiptjosetl to have cut foOQ.OOO. and the tlecoratlon and fur nlshlug ncthaps as much more. The ypnng Governor was thrn one of the most popular men in the United State. He bad equipped as Governor anl led to Washington at the outbreak of the war three or four reetments of volun teers. He was elected United Slates Senator, and his marriage to tliedaunh- tcr of the then Secretary of the Treas ury was the most notable social event In twenty yoars. Miss Chase, because of certain limitations In Mrs. Lincoln's character and tho Invalidism of Secre tary Seward's wife, led all the social hospitalities of the Administration. Tbe consequences of this unhappy marriage arc familiar to all newspaper readers. Governor Spragtte became frightfully dissipated, and his wife se cured n dlvorco from htm some ten yenrs ago on the grounds of great brutality, tlrunkt-nness nml other offenses. Site was given nn absolute divorce, with the right to assume her matden name and with tiio custody of her three younger children nil girls. The elder child, Willie, then n boy of 1 1 or 15. elected tu remain with his father, many of tvhnso characteristics he had iubi'iitul. Ha grew to mnn's estate neglected, unkempt nnd uneducated. Ills mother made frequent oflorts to Induce him to Join her nnd his sisters abroad, where she hnd taken them to bo educated, but vainly. This effort was repeated when she re turned to America to occupy the his toric homo of her father, Kdgewood, In the outskirts of this city. Governor Sprasue only ten months after the di vorce bad married a Mrs Doru Inez Culvert, the divorced wife of nn O do cr mnirrclal traveler. Shu It til twtkU tits, Avis ami another, who attracted attention a few weeks ago by an elope ment from Canouchet. Avis was brought by her sister tn Canonchet Im mediately after the marriage. A Sir. Gerrltt A. Wbnaton of Cleve land toon became another memlier of the household. When 10 or 30 Willie Sprague married tbe girl Avis, nnd thus became his fathers brother-in-law. The stories told of the circumstances preceding and following the marriage would rend like tbe details of a grue some urecic irngeuy. Willie Sprague soon escaped from the environment In which he had found hlmrclf. Ho found employment as a flremnn on nn engine on tho Long Island Railroad. There ho was discov U red by n friend of his father, nnd em ployment was secured for him In the art departmentof the N. Y. WorM. In this position ho developed remarkable In ventive ability, showing that If his tal ents had been property directed he might have made a great name and fame for himself. Ills mother In the meanwhile had re turned from Europe and met her son In New York. Kepentant for all the past, be returned with her to tbe Washington home, and remained with tbe reunited family until a year or so ago; but his wandering habits were too strong for blm, and within a lew months ho es sayed to find employment again for himself in newspaper offices, going first to Pittsburg, then to Chicago, and finally to tbe Pacific town where he met his death. lie had seemed a divorce from his wife shortly after his lllght from Canonchet, and sue speedily married Mr. Whenton. Of the brilliant and beautiful Mrs. S Prague's other children, the second eldest, Ethel, developed very unusual dramatic ability, and after a course In tbe theatrical schools In New York she was recently given a position In Mr. itlchard Mansfield's company, whleh she still holds.
