Rice's Surprise Party in "Pop" will

evening next. The Philadelphia Pres* in
speaking of the troupe while at the Chestnut
street theatre of that city says "the sprightly
banoni has been compelled to repeat her
songs and dances at every performauce this
week." This would argue that the troupe
Is particularly attractive. Every perform
ance was greeted with large audiences a
fact that clearly eatablishes the fai t that the
play is good.
Notwithstanding the inclement weather
an audience numbering about 600 assembled
at the Opera House last uight to witness the
presentation of the ridiculous comedy,
"7-20-8. or Casting a Booraering," by Au
gustin Daly's Comedy Company. The p'ay
was particularly amusing and the players,
one and all, were so well drilled in their re
spective roles that the whole performance
was as satisfactory as could be desired
by tbe most fastidious audience.
To particularize would be hard in
the face of so many that were good, but tbe
character of Floss the much sought "7-20 8,"
by Hden Bijou Heron, was remarkably
tural. It Is to be hoped that the managers
of the Opera House will make an effort to
tiring to this cl y numerous c ih punies as
satisfactory as that of last evening.

Hia More Than Cordial Reception at tha
Star Theatre Laat Night«
N»w Tor*, Oct. 2#.—Tlie beautiful Star
Theatre was densely thronged to-night ou
tbe tiret appearance of Mr. Irving,and never
In tbe annals of the stage In this country
has an actor played to an audience of
greater distinction. This cultivated and
critical house tendered the artist a hearty
greeting, and at once gave Mr. Irving the
assurance of the goodwill oi bis
audience. Curing the entire play
bushed attention alternated with enthu
siastic applause. It la known that Mr.
Irvlog had expressed himself as somewhat
anxious about his reception In Americs, and
a degree or nervousness was noticeable at
times, but It lu no wise detracted from his
splendid delineation of the character of
Mathias, In the weird play of "The Bells."
After esch set Mr. Irving wss called before
tbe curtain, and with great grace acknowl
edge the hearty welcome.
WHAT THE PAPERS SAT.
The Sun says : "The social welcome ac
corded to Mr. Irving since his arrival In
New York has left little that he or his ad
mirers could desire, and it has been happily
followed by one of the most brilliant
triumphs that any artist from abroad has
ever won upon our boards. The old Wallack
Theatre, still held in affectionate memory
by the best of our theatre-goers, was crowded
last evening with a most distinguished audl
as our two houses of opera usually
present, nor so ag

tainly representative of tbe best cultivation
that our city owns, and in respect of the
beauty it contained,far surpassing any audi
ence that Mr. Irving ever bowed to In his
life. When Mr. Irving came upen the stage
ho was received with an outburst ol feeling
so warm, spontaneous and demonstrative in
Its character as to be fairly deafeulng.
People rose their fe«t and shouted their wel
come at him as if they would never t re of
It, and with no heed to the gestures of depre
cation with which he signified his desire to
be Mathias Instead of Henry Irving. Fi
nally he silenced them with a resolute move
ment, and ended a reception which was per
haps the most enthusiastic that any stranger
has enjoyed at "

Sad Seena at a Station House,
[Baltimore Sun, to-day.]
Yesterday as the jail van stood before the
central police station, a middle-aged man
and a swee\ faced little girl stood at the
door. She had a bundle in her arms, and
tears gathered in her eyes and rolled down
her cheeks as she watched the prisoners
brought out to go to jail. One by one they
came, sullen, defiant, indifferent, or even jo
cose as they confronted the stares of the
crowd. At the end of the line came a well
child ruseed to her and sobbed In her arms,
while motherly tenderness flushed and agi
tated the mother's fsce. The officers stepped
jack, and the mother RDd her child
the centre of a sympathizing group, a little
apait from which the husband stood in
stern silence. The little girl unwrapped
the bundle she carried and took from It a
plain-looking shawl. With outstretched
arms she held it towards her
mother and sweetly said, "Mamma,
put it on." The mother took off
the coat she wore, handed it to her daughter
and drew the shawl about her. Bhe took
the child's- face between her hands and
kissed it. With that she turned away with
out a word and passed on to the van, which
she entered with steady step. The eyes of
the little girl followed her mother, and as
the door of the wagon closed with a grat
ing noise the child burst out anew luto
tears. She watched the van until it had
disappeared from sight, then she went down
on her little knees on the stone floor of
the station, carefully folded the coat given
her by her mother and wrapped it in paper.
Her father had previously strolled from the
station and the child quietly followed. The
mother was charged with maliciously de
stroying the property of another and behav
ing in such a disorderly manner as made It
the duty of the magistrate to commit her to

Paris, October 28.— Vfall advices from
Saigon show that the French forces, in their
encounters In the vicinity of Ha-Nol In the
early part of September, met Chinese regu
lars who were well armed and officered.
After a conflict of three days, during which
the French took some of the enemy's works,
they withdrew, leaving Hal Phong still In
the bands of the enemy. Some of the
troops of the King of A imam were with the
A letter from Saigon to tbe franc* states
that unheard of cruelties were committed
near Hue on tbe occasion of Its capture by
the French sailors. Admiral Courbet di
rected, In an official order, that there should
be no quarter given to men, women or chii
dren. Three hundred Annualités who h&d
taken refuge in the mouth of the Bay of
Thuan were killed, all of them being shot.
One hundred and fifty more, who were drift
ing In a junk without arms or oars, were
also mass acted.
The Figaro declares that Admiral Cour
bet, at the instance of Commissioner Har
mand, allowed th«« perpetration of such acta
in order to terrorize the Annamites.
The Temp* denies that Ad "irai Courbet
gave such orders, but udralt9 that 1,203 cf
the enemy were slain at Thuan.
The Goulot i says that, In view of the con
tingency of war between France and China,
several kreuch iron-clads have been ordered

London, Oct. 23.—Tho Chinese Legation
has furnished the newspapers with copies of
of the entire correspondence that passed be
tween the Marquis Tseng, the Chinese Am
bassador, and M. Chalieinel-Lacour, the
French Minister of Foreign Affairs, upon the
Tonquln question. The correspondence
adds little to that already published, except
that it offer arguments in favor of Chiua's
position. It denies that tho Marquis Tseng
ever assured M. Cballemel-Lacour that
China would not oppose France's enterprise
in Tonquln, and says that before July last,
M. Tricon, the then French Ambassador to
China, Informed Li Hung Chang that either
open or occult assistance of Annatn by China
would Invoke a casus belli.
The Paris correspondent of the Standard
says it Is clear that the negotiations between
France and China upon the Tonquln ques
tion have been 'broken off' lor the present.

The Head of Anderson, tbe Murdered
Convict, Produced in Court.
Joliet, III., Oct. 29.—In the case of
Mooney, on trial for the butchery of Ander
son, a leilow-convict, the prosecution this
morning called as witnesses Drs. Heise and
Dougal. The defense having tried to throw
a cloud over the testimony that was given
by the medical experts, the remains of the
dead convict were exhumed on Friday night
the head cut from the body and tak^n to
the office of Dr. N. B Campbell, where it
was dissected on 8a* urday.
When court opened this morning a mys
terious looking box was placed upon a table
in iront of the Jury. It had been reported
by a witness for the defense that they were
going to prove that tbe wound described as
having peuetrated the ear, knocking out
several of the teeth, was an impossible one,
and could not be made. The box was
opened, and a decided sensation occurred in
the court room when the ghastly head of
the murdered convict was exposed to view.
The body had been buried five months,
but the face was well preserved, the skin
being drawn and wrinkled. One side of the
face had been dissected irom the ear ta the
lower jaw, showing the course of the knife
through the ear. The side of the Jaw was
broken and several teeth were missing. The
knife mnst have been struck with all a
man's strength to pierce the jaw bone, the
direction of tbe blow showing it to have
been utterly impossible for Anderson to have
done it himself.
This completely upsets the theory of sui
cide. The jury all had an opportunity of
inspecting the head before It was removed.
Mooney, the accused, sat within 10 feet of
this terrible death's head, but never allowed
his eyes to glai ce in that direction.
F. Oakes was the first witness called for the
defense. He attempted to demonstrate that
the wounds on Anderson's body could have

It was known that 22 men were below,
and, as the result of the explosion was not

A SCENE OF DEVASTATION.
A mass of 6 tones and dust a tose toward
the clouds, trees were uprooted and rocks
weighing many tons were loosened from
their fastenings and thrown luto the river.
Houses for 15 miles arouud were shaken to
their foundation and windows for a distance
of Beven miles were shattered, while tele
graph poles for half a mile were prostrated
The stout oaken planks of the shanty
where tho dynamite was kept were reduced
to splinters not larger than lucifer matches,
and they were scattered for incredible dis
tances to all points of the compass. Ou the
site of the builoing nothing remained but a
huge rent in tbe earth 10 feet in depth and
of corresponding dimensions. The struc
ture was located at the mouth of the tunnel,
and on each side arose the high, rocky wall
of the cut.
MARKS OF THE DISASTER.
For a distance of 200 yards up the track
the rail6 and ballast were spotted with
shreds of human flesh and drops of blood.
The sides of the cut bore the same awful
marks, and high up above the tuui.el, oa a
stately chestnut tree, waved a piece of

fragments of cloth clinging to them, were

The largest pieces were the foot and hend
