that nearly, it not iitille, all of the cut

the conclusion that Italy will have to put

it was an isolated case and would not

connected with other information now at

who embarks on tho "Florida Special."

It Is believed by many of General Joseph
V.. Johnston's friends In this city that ho
contracted tho illness at (leneral Sher
man's funeral which rtsultcdlnhisdcath,
which, of course, revives in everybody's
mind tho old tradition that funerals aro
great breeders of funerals and that the
medical director" of whom we hear at
times in tho newspapers would be admira
bly in place on such occasions if he went
along to see that tho pall-bearers did not
expose iiicni'civts io tno elements wiiu
an unnecessary show of revcrance, which
is a direct Invitation tothogrim destroyer.
Johnston was a warm personal friend and
admirer of Sherman, and theso two of tho
last of the picturesque old landmarks of
the War of the llebelllou havegono henco
almost together. Oencral Sherman is
said never to have recovered from the re
vulsion of feeling with which ho received
the Intimation that President Harrison
flatly refused to grant his request that
General Joseph I;. Johnston Khould bo
continued as railroad commissioner in
iho position to which President Cleveland
had appointed him.
Irish Virtue.
Yesey Knox, tho 1'rotestant member of
Parliament for Kast Cavan, and a gradu
ate of Cambridge University, had this to
Miy about tho virtue of the Irish people In
a recent speech, In u controversy which
has arisen owing to theO'Shca divorce
rase: "1 he Irish people, tho Irish peas
antry, have no need toadvcrtlso their
purity. If they did thov might publish
comparative statistics of illegitimacy. Of
all tho nations upon tlie face of tho earth
and this 1 say because, as ono who dif
fers lu religion from the majority of the
Irish people, I can ay It without Its par
taking of the nature of a boast of all na
tions on tho faco of tlie earth the Catholic
peasantry of Ireland liavo tho cleanest
record in this matter; and if tlierowas
any nation that was entitled to throw tho
Mono it was they. Manv things hive
been relt of our people. Cruel laws and
erne! governments have taken from tho
Irish peasant mm h of the world's goods,
hut (hero is one thing which nociuel law
lias been able lo take from our people,
and that is tho lust pride and pleasure the
Irish pen'ant feels In the purity of his
humble home."

St. Peter's Church, wearing over his sur
plice a red academic hood, such as is
often worn by the Knglish clergy. Two
aged ladles, who were interested listeners
to his discourse, began telling each other
how they admired him. "Hut," said one,
so tho storv runs. "I liked him so much
more before ho went to Wyoming; ho
didn't wear that ridiculous rod thing on
his back then." "Oh, my dear." replied
her companion, "he doesn't really llko to

in the l.bbltt Hotiso reading-room last

licnvy-tct man, Hcorgc Long, a celebrated

see, proved to bo the most entertaining
talker. He dually Inquired if tho parly
had over heard of how two rcilcr.il 'Spies
got away with Genera! Johnston during
the Atlanta Cninpalgn. Ono of tho lis
teners had heard the story related., hut
ho Insisted on Long's account of it.
"Well, It was a luightyscrloussnapthoy

way of Introduction. "TwoYankcosples
not only bent tho General out of a 91,100
fnddle-fiorse, but they led Hardee's wliolo
nrmy corps Into about as serious n scrim
ninge ns they ever experienced. 1 will
give It to you brielly.
"When Johnston nnd Sherman camo
close together, down at New Hopo Church,
in Georgia, and everybody expected n de
(Islvo Imtllo next day, there appeared at
General Johnston's headquarters tw o men,
farmers apparently, who claimed to know
every hog path lu tho neighborhood, and
advised him that n gap existed in tho
Federal lines wide enough to thrust n
corps into. They appeared sosimploaud
lionet, and talked so intelligently of tho
country and the position ol tho Federal
troops that they completely deceived tlie
General and several of his division com
manders who happened to bo with him
when (hoy made Iho visit. They were
splendid specimens of tho Georgia Cracker
in drct, speech and shrewdness.
After a long parley it was decided that
the goods wcro genuine and Hardee's
corps wasluisilly marshalled to wedge
lltelf Into tho vacant place and spilt Sher
man's peoplo Into halves. As u precau
tion It was determined to send the two
strnngers along with Hardee', and, to fa
cllltutolhcmuvcmciit, they were mounted,
ono on the charger of Colonel Hill of tho
Seventh Texas, and tho oilier on one of
General Johnson's favorite horses.
"In an hour Hardee's column silently
tiled out of Its bivouac and was headed
for the supposed gap In the enemy's Hue.
The two farmers rodent tlie head of tho
troops along with Hardee himself and
tome of his stall. A full mllo was cov
ered and tho troops wcro rapidly entering
upon debnleablo ground when suddenly
tho two strangers wildly waved their hats
nnd, putting spurs to their horses, disnp
pdired In dome timber. Simultaneously
Willi this action and before Hardcoaud
his staff recovered themselves a murder

lium from two sep irate quarters. The
men were in marching column of foui mini
I Ills musketry was terribly destructive,
hut they did not lose their bead).
"lntantly comprehending that they
had been enaicd, they faced their cue

It looked for a time, about City Hall, as
ihevery iawjcr in town wanted to be a

Some people liav o a great deal ol trouble

Keintory lllalnu's private secretaries, is
such a person. Yesterday the Secretary
gave out for publication the reply of
Governor Nlcholls to his telegram about
tho killing of tho Mallaltes lu Nuw

wore made, ono of which was glvon to

her "Mike" Duffy whosoine years ago
was a Ittpubllcan leader In tho old Third
ward. Ho was employed IntlioPostolllco
and was somewhat of n diameter In his

drifted to tho stirring times of thoeirly

"Hy tho way," taldoiio old gentleman,
"did you ever htar tho story of Mike
Duffy's jarade? No Well hero goes.
Duffy had been selected as tlic marshal
of n lleptiblleau parade. There was n
negro band here, and as Mike was some
thing of n politician, and tho colored
voter was numerous in tho Third ward,
lie thought it would bo policy to lilro
(li.it band for Iho pnradc. Thereupon ho
Indited a nolo to tho leader, or which
this is a literal copy:
"Mister Later:
"'I w ants yure baud fur Iho parad, Wen

A haggard, care-worn young man rushed
Into an up town saloon tills morning nnd
whispered to tlie bartender lu n trembling
voice, "Aslnllio frappe." Ho was so
nervous that his teeth fairly chattered,
and when the drluk-mixer placed tho
pale-green Honor on tho counter It was
with great ifilllculty that tho customer
got the glass to his lips. With ono gulp
ho swallowed tho chilly mixture, nnd
with a long-drawn sigh or relief nt his
evidently-changed condition paid his
score and disappeared behind the swing
ing door.
"If he sticks lo that stuff loin; cnougb,"
remarked tho bartender to Tiir Ccim,
who had gone lu for a maliitlnnl glass of
vldi vand milk, "some night he'll sco u
w hole zoological garden and go crazy try
ing to catalogue the collection. Ho only
takes ono drink of absinthe a dav at

caught tho bartender's last words, "with

jiraines rctncmeiit irom tlio service
draws near, the Navy awaits with eager
expectancy some inkling as to Ids succes
sor In the command of tho llrooklyn
Navy-yard. Yesterday most significant
news was given to a Vimcn reporter by an
olhccr who is generally well informed.
Ho said that Commodore James A. Greer,
who is now President of the Hoard of Ex
amination and Retirement, would ho the
Commodore Greer was selected for tho
place, it was said, because the other two
candidates', Captain Henry I'rbcu and
Captain lldwurd 11. Potter, have been
promised oilier orders of a very desirable
nature. Captain Krben will go to tho
Sailors' Homo at Philadelphia, known in
tlie navy ns "the White House," a very
desirable post, and Captain Potter, who is
now governor of tho Naval Homo lu Phil
adelphia, will take command of the re
cei v (tiK ship Minnesota, Intel v commanded
1 y Captain Gilbert 0. Wiltse. This lsalso
a very dcslrablo post and ono that many
nlllrers in high standing hao applied for.
'Willi Captain Potter and Captain lben
thus disposed of, Commodore Urccrmay
get the coveted navy yard command.
Greer Is an Ohio man, who has been
in Iho service nearly forty-four years.
During the war ho took an actlvo part in
'So removal of Mason and hli.lcll from
tho Knglish steamer Trent, and subse
quently commanded tho Carondclct and
Denton of Admiral Porter's squadron in
tlio actions around VicksDiirg. I'or
forty-live days of tho siege of that city lie
was almost constantly under lire. In
1873, with the steamer Tigress, ho found
tho wreck of tho famous Polaris at Lit
tleton Island, North Greenland. Four
xcarengoho was appointed Acting Hear
Admiral, in command of tho Kuropcan
station, and, sinco lSbO, ho lias been
president of various organisations and re
tiring boards at Washington. Upon tho
retirement of llear-Admiral Hraine, ho
will stand first on tho list of Commo
dores. Kear-Admiral iiraino will, It is
understood, move out of his present
quarters in tlie Navy-Yard May I, and
take a house in llrooklyn.
Another important point that was given
out yesterday relates to tho removal of
Captain J. N, Miller, who is now captain
of tho yard, still another desirable post.
Captain Miller's term of duty expires in
April, and several otllccrs. It Is said, have
signilled to tho Department their aspira
tions in the direction of the prospective
vacuncy. Tho uamo of Captain Thcodoro
K. Kane, now in cliargo of tho Kuuip
incut Hurcau of the Hrooklvn Navy Yard,
has been most prominently mentioned
until jesterday, when tho rumor camo
from Washington that Captain Miller's
(imo would bo extended another year,
i his is explained by tlio tact that the
new commandant will feel the need of an
assistant who Is thoroughly familiar with
the details of tho yard, which makes It
Impolitic to remove both tho senior otll
ccrs at once.
