New YoRK,Oct.28.—TheMace-Davis com

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

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

Beltidbhe, N. J., Oct. 23.—Peter C.
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.

friends assembled at George R. Townsend's,

in a body to the residence of Mr. Moore.
It was a complete surprise. Mr. Moore

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
*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.

Bay Hbad, N. J., Oct. 23.—The body of
the- woman which washed ashore near the
Bay Head dock yesterday has been identi
fied as Miss Miliicent Lewis by Mr. Samuel
Morrison, of Bayville. Nothing is known
of the dead woman's antecedents. She
came to Bayville In July last and boarded
in one of the summer cottages. She was
known as a handsome aud entertaining
young lady, and gave her ago us 25. A fa
vorite with everybody, she was welcomed in
the homes of all the well-to-do residents of
the place, and when the summer season
closed she was asked to accept a home in
Samuel Morrison's house, between whose
daughter and Miss Lewis a strong attach
ment had sprung
It was noticed
accepted a home with Miss Morrison, the
former became very despondent. Every
thing was done to make her comfortable,
and a good elocutionist, a talented slutrer
pianoforte player, she was much sought
after in society, ncr purse was even re
plenished by Farmer Morrison's daughter.
On October I a letter arrived addressed to
Miss Lewis upon which the postmark
New York. The letter, she said, was from
an uncle In the metropolis who desired her
to come to New York aud accept a lucrative
position as a inuoic teacher in the Board of
Education. On the day following (Tues
day) Miss Morrison noticed that her newly
acquired friend was given much to weeping.
The next morning Mies Lewis started
ostensibly for New York, and that was
the last seen of hér alive. This
morning the body was identified by
Miss Morrison. A trunk left at Farmer Mor
rison's contains fine clothing, most of which
is marked with the Initials "I. II. I.," the
saute as the clothing on the dead body are
marked. Farmer Morrison says that he
thought as much of the dead girl as if she
had b^en one of his own daughters, and that
he will give her a decent burial in his own
family plot if the body is not claimed by her
friends, the knowledge of who they are not
being known, the dead girl having done
away with all her correspondence.

night the same company will present "King
Lear." 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."

stitution was adopted.
The repot of the Committee on Canons
relative to the work among the colored pop

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
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

There were other children in the house, but
these he rarely saw, and was not permitted
to play with. After remaining at Winterport
for several years he was carried on a vessel

learned that he was stolen by Jesse James,
the Davisons and Pinkham.
After reaching Brazil he managed toelude
his captors and returned to this country,
working his passage on a ship. Since then
he has beet to sea, most of the time serving
as cook. He can read but little and does
not write at all. He proposes, in case he
stays here the coming winter, to go to even
