Chicago, July 6th. — The morning journals de
nominate the Katiunal Anti-Monopoly Convention a
fiasco. With nearly three hundred delegates, the
Convention dwindled down to about fifty at the
close. Denis Kearney claims to have evidence that
the afftir was engineered largely by what he terms
three Washington lobbyists, and that he will show
up their true character at the meeting next Sunday,
when he ill answer the editorial in tbe Times,
which combats his views on the rai'roid question.
He contends in the matter of freight charges that
» bile collectively they are large, still, when taken
in the case of the individual purchaser of a suit of
clothes, as an illustration, they are merely nominal.
Mr. Kearney says he goes to New York city from
here, where he will address the workingmen in
Cooper Institute, and then go to Ohio. lie has en
gagements which will fill three months' time.
A Krs.ni ir '• Knock- and »raa <>u("
Chicaoo, July 6th. — A Baltimore, Md., spec'al
gives an account of a lively battle at Cross Keys, a
notorious sporting place ne»r the city. The trouble
grew out of . cock fight, and before the sport ended
a number of the sportsmen presented as pitiable an
appearance as their fame birds. For a long time
the owners of the birds had been stubborn rival* for
the hi. nor of the pit, and each was backed by niauy
frienls The owners were Perry Knight ana a
prominent local politician. Knight won the main,
a.d then six scrub matches were fought. The ex
citement, aided by beer and the heat, was running
high, when a quarrel was started between a man
from the Eighth Ward and a resident of Cross Keys,
about a sta^e, the holder of which had riri oft.
Blows were exchanged, and in an instant there was
heavy fighting all along tbe line. The crowd moved
in front of the tavern and set to work in earnest.
For nearly an hour they struck and shot at each
other People residing in vhe neighborhood were
much alarmed, and closed their houses. There was
a picnic in progress bait a mile below. The ladies
and children who were taking a walk along the road
ran panic stricken. When the firing began those of
the crowd at the tavern who had vehicles rattled
away for town. In the row knive 1 , billie", stones
and pistols were used indUcrinuiauly. Before the
fi.;tjl was over the road was lined with men with
torn clothing, cut heads and bUck eyes. It is im
possible to get at the exact number of the wounded,
some were taken away in carriages, many shot and
badly wounded, and at least twelve others banged
on the head and in the eyes. The must of those
badly hurt were from the city, and all from the
Eighth Ward— the righting Democratic ward of
Baltimore, where they roll up huge majorities at
Sfltllns for the MiKdrM* of a Babe.
Nkw Ye rk, July 6th.— The Tribune gives the se
quel of the Jessie Maillard ihrsecution by young
Kvy, by whom she wax betrayed. Those who had
beeu dealing with Levy- Brothers were so incensed
at young Levy's actions that they began to discon
tinue their trade. In self-defense, a largefsum of
money was paid to Miss Maillard, and a smaller
sum to her counsel, Colonel Spencer. Th i girl was
paid Beveral thousand dollars, all of which she da -
po-uted in the savings banks. Having taken this
proper step, the Levy Brothers took a more import
ant one by compelling the cause of all their trouble
to leave the firm They then issued a circular stat
ing these farts, which they sent to their former cus
tomers, with tbe effect of causing many of them to
return. Where j oung Levy is now is uot stated, but
Miss Maill.ird and her child are welL It ts hill 2« un
der-tood that Colonel Spencer did not take one cent
of the money given to tbe girl.
Tile Ucmitnd for Matches.
Kbw York, July 6th.— The Tribune says: For
several days the down-town street* have been alive
with cries of " Matches, penny a box !" Within the
past three days 85,000 gross of matches of all sizes
and shapes have been sold in this city by agent* of
the factories. The cause of the large sale is that
manufacturer* are on longer obliged to pay a tax on
their goods Last Monday the price of ordinary
lurifer matches fell from 31 50 a gross to 60 cents,
but the demand for them was so great that the
manufacturers raised the price to 75c, and even then
found that they were in danger of running short of
the demand. All kinds depreciated 200 per cent, in
price, and there is no probability tliat wholesale
prices for them will rise.

B»ys Senator Ro l:ns has had no chance for re-election
since the caucus was held, but there are no indica

can take advantage of any favorable circumstance.
Secretary Chandler has made just as determined
enemies in his political management of this State

of them.

Tin- lermiint Insurrection.
Burungtos, July 6'.h.— Governor Baretow has
just called out four companies to quell the insurrec

ernor's summons is based is to the effect that 300
b'.rikers, nearly all armed, possessing 150 kegs of
gunpowder belonging to tne mining company,
threaten ti destroy the town ot Ely, and have al
leady committed acts of violence. The Sheriff and
posse are un ible to cope with them. The Governor
will go with the com[>anieß, and Colonel Greenleaf,
of the First Regiment, will be in command. The
Governor also tr legraphed the Treastirerof the min
ing company that they must be prepared to pay
men at once.

BCTUKernUX.nL), July 6th. — Information received
in this city indicates that a general strike of coal
miners will take place all over the State in a very

disposition on the [.art of operators to ignore the

position to reduce the price of mining half a cent
per bushel. Information received shows that if a
strike is inaugurated it will be general and simul
taneous throughout the State.

.La Intensely Thrilling Itlspairli.
CinCAno, July 6th— A New York letter. Bpeaking
Of tbe [wrjoiial Jattr :i'.tiviMit-SH of Mrs. Langtry and
her "fag," asGehhardt is termed, says : The Lily is
not out of sight of New York, although she may
have drupped out of mind. With other people she
rides down to the rnc-s of the Coney I-land Jockey
Clab atop of Fre Jdie Gtbhardt's four. in-hand coach.
She looks more nearly beautiful, as compared with
women about her, than when seen on the stage, for
her wondrously smooth ekin and delicate complex
ion suffers nothing from the irlare of the midday
sunlight. A man with a back like a turtle and a
fate like a boiled lobster joined her in her box dur
ing Freddie's absence, and chatted with her. He
proved to be a theatrical manager. When Freddie
returned she showed no disposition to dismiss the
fat man in a hurry. He got so jeatoußly
angry that his state of mind was plainly
visible in his face. Mrs. Laugtry smiled covertly,
and seemed to enjoy bis discomfiture, but the Liiy
soon h d her own turn at anger. A ter the races
were over Frt Jdie took her to his coa-jh, and o:i the
w»y had to pass cow by a crowd in tin field. The

In IS7I I was at Naples, when an Ital
ian corvette, the Amirale Caracoiolo, was
launched at Castellamare. The vessel was
christened by the Countess Teresa I'j.rac
ciolo, the daughter of the chief of the
elder branch of the Caracciolo. I was
staying at Naples as the guest of the young
lady's father, and 1 heard from him a very
remarkable story connected with the death
of the unfortunate officer in honor of whose
memory the vessel was named. The cir
cumatances which led to the execution of
Prince Francesco Ciracciolo in 1795) are
well-known. I shall merely state, there
fore, that he was condemned by a court
martial composed of Sicilian officers to be
hanged at the yard-arm of the Hag-ship for
bearing arms against his lawful sovereign.
When the othcial comrrunication of the
rinding and sentence of the Court was
brought to the I'rince, he was explaining
the names and uses of the various parts of
the rigging to some young Neopolitan no
blemen who happened to be on board the
ship. A glance at the letter was sufficient
to show him its contents. He showed no
sign of emotion, but requested the officer
whd brought the dispatca to wait for a few
minutes while he tinisbed hia explanations.
This being done, he retired to his cabin ;
and after a vain attempt to get the sen
tence changed to a more honorable manner
of death, he resigned himself to his fate,
which he met with great fortitude. Some
days after the «vent the King, who had
been for an afternoon's cruiae on a Sicilian
ahip-of-war outside the bay, was returning
to Naples in the evening. It waa a moon
light night, and the sea was perfectly calm.
There was, indeed, so little wind that it
was difficult to steer tbe vessel. The
King was sitting in the balcony of the
stern cabin, watching the sea, when sud
denly he became aware that something was
following the ship. As the object came
nearer it was easy to distinguish that it
w.ib the body of a man in an upright atti
tude, as if treading water ; and very soon
the King was able to recognize the feat
urts of Admiral Caracciolo. His eyes were
open and seemed to be fixed on the King,
and, except for its ghastly pallor, the face
was unchanged. The explanation was sim
ple. At er being submerged for some days
the body had become so buoyant that the
weights attached to the feet were not suffi
cient heavy to keep it under water ; but
they retained it in an upright position, and
it was drawn along by the current created by
the movement of the ship. It is easy to
imagine the horror cf Ferdinand at what
he believed to be an apparition from an
other world. When at length it waa ex
plained to him what had happened, he
gave orders that a boat should be lowered
and that the corpse should be brought on
board and takeu to Napleß for Christian
burial. But the superstitious Sicilians
dared not obey the royal command, an
tbe ship, drawing in its wake the upwright
body of the Admiral, sailed slowly into the
Bay of Naples. Here a boat's crew was
obtained from au English man-of-war, who
took the Admiral's body ashore, where it
was deposited in his own palace, and at
length received the last rites of the church.
[Notes and (Queries.
It ia now gravea on the tablet of history '
that though Columbas ww the first discov
erer of oar Western Continent, from which
the practical beuetitß of occupation and
settlements were received, he was not the
first European to plant footsteps ou its
coil, that having been accomplished further
beyond hia time than the present is re
moved from his great discovery. Erik, a
bold Norseman, colonized Greenland from
Iceland, and Lief, his bolder son, and other
Greenland Norse, discovered America,
probably as far south aa Massachusetts, or
even the Chesapeake, certainly as far as
Labrador and the Island of Newfoundland.
No results, however, followed from these
discoveries, and the hardy Norsemen
seemed content to live in desolate Green
land, although we might add that many
physical appearances and more detioite ac
counts all seem to show that Greenland,
about a. d. 1000 — around which these
events were clustered — -was a much warmer
and more temperate country than it now is.
How long the Greenland Norse existed
we know not exactly. They finally broke
off communication with mother Iceland,
lived and intermarried among the Skr;e
lings, as they called the Esquimaux, but
were extinct in 1679 and 1581, when the
first expeditions were dispatched from
Denmark for the rediscovery of Greenland
and its ancient colonizers, if they still ex
isted, and the resumption of the trade with
its inhabitants. The last definitely known
of the Greenland Norse is that they paid
their tribute to the Crusades in the shape
of walrus tusks, delivered at Bergen, in
1327, and their weight is noted on a re
ceipt, which is still in existence.
Only eight years before Culumbas dis
covered America, according to an old his
torical notice reputed to have been found,
there still lived forty men in Bergen who
were acquainted with the Greenland naviga
tion, and used annually to bring home pre
cious cargoes from that country. On return
ing in that year, they were asked by certain
German merchants who stayed at Bergen to
sell some of their wares, but they declined
to let them have any of them. The Ger
mans then took revenge by murdering
them, in an assault committed during a
banquet to which they had invited them.
From this time, it is said, it became impos
sible to sail for Greenland, because no one
knew the road to ita shores. This is the
last we know definitely of the Norse Green
landers, the receipt for the Crusade tax at
Bergen being the last we 'know definitely.
