On the steamer the subject of conversation was a statement published on the authority of Mike Gillesp'c, of Boston, to the effect that Sullivan was willing to spar Mace or any other man four rouud6 for $5,000 aside. "I've had $1,000 in Harry Hill's hands over a month," said Mace, excitedly, "wait ing lor Sullivan to cover It, aud only with drew the money yesterday after making ar rangements to call to-day to fill a ten weeks' engagement on the other side. Sullivan knew I was goiug abroad, and just as I am about to start, out comes this challenge of Gillespie's. I don't believe Sullivan author ized it, but if lie did I have this reply to make; I will spar him in matches, three rounds or four, just as he chooses, and bet him three to one he knock me out. "If bo will come to England I'll meet him there, and rliow him £100 for expenses, or I will meet him here three months hence If that is not definite enough I can't speak plaiu English.

Small, who lain jail here on a charge ol horse stealing, has not partaken of a particle of food for the last 13 days. His mother and sister visited him last week, bringing with them large quantities ot delicacies, but lie refused to eat. Dr. Lefferts, tho jail physician, has submitted him to a careful examination and found that lie is in perfect health and bis stomach in Its normal condi tion. His pulse is strong and vigorous and injurious effects are yet visible from bis long fast. Since bis removal from the new to the old jail he has shown an ugly spirit, threatening his fellow-prisoners and the sheriff with vengeance whenever an oppor tunity shows itself He declares that he will be acquitted on the charge of horsc ptealing made against him, and says that lie can only bo convicted of an attempt to break jail, for which he believes the court will not punish him very severely. Just what his motives are keeping up his long fast no one can tell. L«arn Telegraphy, day or evening. P. A N. J.

They said thov "did this out of regard to the IV. C. T. U." The alumni of the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy have condemned "the salo of In toxicating liquors a» a beverage In drug stores as a growing evil, tending to degrade the professi«*n of pharmacy and damaging the morals of the community." Commissioner Eaton h ts written to the resident of the National W. O. T. U. that je will gladly do all In his power to pro mulgate scientific temparar.ee tru'hs from bis department In the Governmmt. This Is certainly a large offset to that other branch ofthe governmental sorvlce which promul gates the id«*.a that 90 cents on every galion of spirits will stifle governmental conscieuco and render tho liquor traffic a legitimate leech on the Tilals of the nation.

Last evening, at 7.3< o'clock, Mr. and Mrs. Enoch Moore were takeu completely by surprsie at their residence on East Fourth 6treet, It being 50 years since they were mar ried. A large number of relatives and friends assembled at George R. Townsend's, two doors below, and at 7.30 o'clock went in a body to the residence of Mr. Moore. It was a complete surprise. Mr. Moore said be must put on his best, sud eo did bis good lady, aud they soon appear d in the large parlor, when prayer was offered by Rev. A. T. Scott. Afterwards he read let ters of regret from Mrs. 8totsenburg and Mrs. Stokes, of Washington, D. C., Mrs. A R. Woolston, of I.aroda, Texas, and other letters from friends in Philadelphia. A let ter was read written 66 years ago by Mr. Moore's sister, which is in the possession of Mr. Charles Moore. After many congratu lations by the large company a table was arranged In the dining-room, aud tastefully decorated with choice flowers, brought and sent by friends, and loaded with all that was needed to satisfy the Inner man. The happy company did ample justice to the many good thing set before them. Among those present were Enoch Moore, Jr., and daughters, Mr. W. KI. Wright aud son, Mr. Charles Moore and wife, Mr. Geoige R. Townsend, wife and son; Mr. and Mrs. Bane and son, of Philadelphia; Col. John H. Moore, Mr. William Blackburn and sister, Mr. B. F. Townsend and daughters, Mrs. Teas, Mr. E. B. Frazer, wif«i and daughter, Virs. Eliza G. Rowe, Rev. A. T. Scott and wife, daughter; Mrs. Mamie Rice and others. Townsend aud Miss Lillie S. Frazer fur nished excellent music from the piano,while the young folks engaged In a little dance. Mr.and MrB.Moore received numerous | res ents. The evening was an enjoyable one to all present, and the old folks looked the happiest of all, surrounded by their children aud grandchihiren. They have lived these past 50 years as the Almighty designed his creatures to live—in love and peace. May their remaining days be many and happy white on earth, and at last may they meet in that better world where all is joy aud parting is unknown, ia the desire of their children, relatives and irieuds. T. Mr. rlc&ld, wife and Ann Moore, Miss The Misses A Lottery Swindle. Some time ago a number of persons in this city received circulars from the "Royal New Brunswick Distribution Company." The circulars set forth the virtues of the lot tery and claimed that there w- ro no blanks aud fixed the prizes from $100,000 to $5. Enclosed was a «-ample ticket and the re ceiver was urged to become the agent of the company and order more tickets. A number about town and other people of young *vh«> were not able to lose the money sent answers and as a matter of course did not receive auy prizes. In several instances answers came from the Canada concern ask ing 'or tho parties to send on additional money as they had drawn prizes. This was promptly done, but as yet no answer has been received. The thing is evidently a swindle and without any virtues whatever. The postal authorities have been notified. A Small-Nixed Runaway.

The sudden jar broke the harness off the horse, which proceeded down Sixth street, while the small boys were attcuded to by passers-by.

Of the play and company the Phil adelphia Record of Tuesday, October 1G, say6: "Mr. W. E. 8heriilan was very warmly welcomed back upon tho Philadel phia stage by troops of friends last night, though he chose to make his first appear ance in that most difficult and lugubrious of all of Shakespeare's creations, "King Lear." Perhaps it was the difficulty of the part that induced Mr. Sheridan to essay it for his first night, in order to show up his paces, now that ho is improved by travel aud experience. He certainly has gained in breadth and capability. His Lear is a most conscientious and faithful realization of a crazed, maltreated old man who maintains his dignity in his distress and never forgets that he is every inch a king. Mi. Sheridan's support thrr ughout is very good." On Saturday night Charles L. Davis in "Alvin Jo8lin" will appear at the Opera House. The Hudson Daily Journal of a recent date says: Charles L. Davis "Alvin Joslln" troupe, who played at the Opera House last night, had a large audience, which they highly entertained. Their play has little plot. It Is hardly anything more than a series of Improbable adventures, aud contains a good deal of the tragic order for a comedy, but. the admirable way In which it was presented, the excellent mechanical the fun made by "Uncle Alvin" and the splendid music of the large orchestra pleased everybody, and there was much ap plause. The dressing of the troupe was also fine. Rice's Surprise Party in "Pop" is the at traction at the Opera House evening, November 1.

The committee reported ad versely to the tentative use ot any portion of the book and the report was adopted. The report from the same committee con curring with the House of Bishops in substi tuting the words "House of Deputies" for "Convention" in certain places In the con stitution was adopted. The repot of the Committee on Canons relative to the work among the colored pop ulation in the South was then taken up. The com mil tee reported that In their opiu iou legislation intended for good might op crate for evil. The Church caunot too care fully avoid drawlug lines of distinction be tween different classes. The special com mittee on the same subject had reported recommending the adoption of a canon for the establishment of a separate missionary organizations in the different dioceses under the direction of the bishops. The report of the special committee was not agreed to. The two houses met In the afternoon as the Board of Missions and Mr. James M. Brown was re-elected Treasurer of the Do mestic and Foreign Mi sionary Society. The Right Rev. Bishop Doane, of Albany, presented the report of the Mexican Com mission, which stated that during 1881 in creased dissatisfaction was felt as to the con duct of afialrs in Mexico. In 1882 the com mission expressed to Bishop Riley in strong terms their opinion thut the Chur h should be called on to support the Church lu Mexico until all the terms of the covenant had teeu met, and liiB presence was re quested in New York. A communication was subsequently sent to Bishop Riley by Bishop Lee, In which he stated that It ap pe&red to the commission that there had been an apparent want of open dealing in regard to the liturgy, and that actually its completion was being hindered. There had been also an apparent misappropriation of funds and several congregations in Mexico have never received an episcopal visitation. No answer was received to this communi cation. A telegram was subsequently sent requesting the presence of Bishop Riley in this city on the 18th insti On the 16th an answer was received that Bishop Riley could not leave his work on such short notice. At a meeting of the Mexican Commission it was concluded that the work could tot be carried on under Bishop Riley, and on the 19th inst., he was requested to resign the work. An answer has sine*' been received which seemed to imply that Bishop Riley had resigned. The report stated that the mission had for years been supported II a great measure from the Bishop's own fuuds. There was no question with the com mission as to the duty of continuing the re form movement in Mexico, but the commis sion was not prepared to state what the method should be. A communication from the House of an unanl the action Bishops was read, stating that by mouB vote they had approved of of the commission in requesting the resigna tion of the Bishop of the Valley of Mexico, and also recommending that mission work in Mexico be carried on. Rev. Dr. Fulton, Missouri, said state ments had been made that a convent had been entered into with the Church of Jesus in Mexico. It was impôt tant to know with whom that covenant had been made. The general convention was the only body that could authorize such a covenant. The Mexican Commission, having the unanimous approbation of the House of Bishops, has requested the Bishop of the Valley of Mexico to resign his commission. Now, in whose hands is it to be placed? Bishop Riley is not within the jurisdiction of this church. He is the head of a synod of his own church. If he resigns, what then! We will have adrift in the world another de tached bishop responsible to no church on earth and liable to .establish schismatic so cieties. After a discussion to what disposition should be made of the report it was laid on the table. The House of Bishops met this morning and the resignation of the Right Rev. Bishop Potter as Secretary of the House was accepted and Rev. Dr. William Tatlock was elected to fill the position. LOCAL LACONICS.
