Ills hand, In fact, was shaken lieforu he knew It. "Do you want lo see mo?" said Sir Ceorgo. "That was my mission," was tho reply. "Well, I well; are you from tho Minister of War, Mr. Lndlcott, you know?" "No, sir; from Tin: Ciimc Tin: Wasii inoton Ciutic a newspaper that every body at Iho Capital reads."

SAllTOlllS VA31LLV. lln'orls Tliut Wore .Muilo to t'leient Nellie nriint's .M.irrliigi'. Tho newspaper gossip about an unpleas antness existing In thu married relations of Mrs. Nelllo tlraut Sartorls and her hus band does not surprise those of our citizens who weiu familiar with their courtship. They look upon theo reports as tho natural sciUenco of tho uncongenial to use a mild phase alliance .Miss Nelllo was n girl of sweet disposition and gentlo man neis, her father's Idol, while Sartorls was a rough, coarse-grained and decidedly vul gar, low-bred Lngllshman. Ills general course conduct, hi connection with tho fact that hu had exhibited somo of Miss Nellie's letters to him, accompanied with gross re marks, to pcisons lu a Wisconsin town, whero an accomplished young lady had re jected his addresses, caused solicitude nmoii" ninny of (iencral llrant's warm personal filcnds, and somo of them consulted as to the propriety of Informing him of Sartorls' conduct with n view of regaining possession ot Miss Nellie' letters. Senator Matt Carpenter finally consented to broach tho delicate subject to (lenernl (irant. Ho called nt the Whlto House, and hi us delicate a manner as possible com menced relating tho current scandal ns to Saitoils' notorious conduct, when tho (ien cral quietly remarked: "That will do, Sena tor; but my daughter Is engaged to .Mr. Sar totls, and the wedding will tnko place." Senator Cainentcr, lu speaking of thu In terview, said ho never felt so chagrined as ut tho President's abrupt closing of tho con versation, and that he would never again under any circumstances attempt to advlso about tho domestic nllalrs of any one. It was well known that (leneral (Irant was opposed to tho alliance, but when Ids daughter's alfcetlim wero engaged hu acquUeecd, and would listen to no argument or suggestion to thu contrary. When (lovernor Jewell was returning fiom his mission ntst. Petersburg to ac cept a position hi (Iencral (irant' Cabinet, hu stopped n day at Southhampton to call upon the elder Mr. and Mrs. Sartorls, tho parents of Miss Nellie's husband. Ho was coidlally rccclu-d by them, but In the couisoof conversation Mrs. Sai toils as tonished tho cx-Mlnlstcr to Hiissla by ro- innil.lng "that she didn't see what thero was about Algernon, her son, to eatlso tlio daughter of the President of the gieat L'nlted States to fall III love with mid marry."

Any single Judge of the court silling In vacation or chamber can grant a writ of error. It I something Hint Is rniely refused, aud never In n cao whero llfo Is Involved, If the rea sons I'O Iho least favorable io tho accused. Tho Court of Appeals meets lu this city No vember 1. It Is posslblo but barely probablo that the couit tuny review thu cao lu time to glvo a thiol Judgment before that date. Tho court has, however, to go over a mass ot testi mony nnd carefully consider alt the objec tion raised on either side. Then will como tho long argument pro and con. After this come the conference of the Judges; then tho opinions nro to bo pre pared and dellicrcd, and It Is sufo to as siimothat tho enso will have but entered upon Its primary stngu nt Iho time now llxcd for the execution of tho dread sen tence of the law. Cluvcrlus has received nows of llio grant ing of tho writ, As this was expected, as u matter of course It gavu him no grounds for elation. Ho received the news with Ids usunl self-possession nnd without comment. Ilo appears to bo conlldent of securing n new trial and seemingly hopeful of a favor able result.

Somo persons very Ignoriintly Imagined Ihat u now trial had been granted, nnd weio giving vent to their Indignant fcellngsou the subject. Tho public Interest lu tho case, It Is needless to piy, I very great. In connection with tin case a writer In tho Mute speaks of a mylcilou disappear ance on the night of tho Madison murder, which Is ncutlous coincidence if nothing more ; "A German was employed lu tlio north wesleni pait of tho city, lie spnko very little English and had few Intimates. On the night of March 'JO tho party went out, which was uotu usual thing. He remained nil night, which was a very unustril occur rence, no caine iiacK to ms emtuovers about noon March 1, lojklug n if ho had been sleeping 'in the red laud' district on mother earth. He was rather unkempt, as well us unsteady on his feet. Ho m.ido no explanations; hi fact, his employer was not pleated nnd hu gnio him his discharge, lie took what was due him mid his gripsack and ha never been seen or even heard of since. This disappearance may have no bearing on this ease. It Is not presumed Hint It has, but ts simply written out as a coincidence. Nothing was ever said or written about the man's abrupt dcpnrtuic, because ho was a stranger hero and had no filcnds to Inquire after lilin. aud was not therefore pattleiilarly missed ; ,lu fact, his employer stated thai lu tho hurry of busi ness hu never thought of the two matters lu connection until after the trial of Cluvcrlus had ended." cjnr.r isL'snrnnAU's visit. Tlio stutter or tliislnt'ss to which It l'rolmlily Kt'llltus, lion. I). W. Hitshjhcad, chief of tho Cherokee Nation hi tho Indian Tcriltory, Is nt tho National. Tho chief Is somewhat noii-cominlttnl regarding his visit to tho Capital, declaring that ho camo hither for tho purposo of looking into a liltlu matter of business that needs straightening. It is learned fiom other sources that the little mailer ot business Is thought to be a snarl which theCheiokcu Indians aud tho Government have gotten Into over a pay ment of RUO,O0U mado several years ago. Tho Indians, ft seems, had an Idea that the money was for uu Increased valuation of lands which they ceded to tho Government on which to place other tribes. It appears on the books of tho Government that the money Is In reality on tho pineliaso of tho entire section of laud known on tho map as the "Cherokee strip." There arc seven million acres of land hi this strip, and it was assessed at astonishingly low rales, somo of It at 4!) cents', and thu balance nt 70 cents per acre, whereas tho hind is In reality now worth all tho way from $'J to $10 per acre. The former as sessed valuation Is a mere bagatelle. The land Is good, and it Is near the Kansas line, not far from towns and cities, and railroads nro fast getting down that way.
