What was Done Behlntf tbe Closed Doora—The Cbancea of Chandler and Stanley Matthews— Conbllng and Hla Fight Against Robertaon —Mr. Tom Black Made Happy— Receipts of Mx Per Cent*.-Mr. Dawes Letting Hla Party Down Gently—A Blustering Little Speech, Which Scared Nobody. AV ashington, May 4. —The Senate’s ex ecutive session was without any incident of Interest. Mr. Hoar made a long speech against the Chinese treaty, arguing in favor of unlimited Chinese Immigration. Bill Chandler is doomed to be rejected, as every Democrat and Mahone, together with seven Republicans, namely: Conkling, Lo gan, Mitchell, Platt of New York, Jones of Nevada, and both the Camerons, are openly against him. The Judiciary Committee will report him adversely, and will also re port Stanley Matthewe adversely, but his friends claim he will be confirmed. Sherman opposes Shelden, but he will certainly be confirmed so, that Robertson’s is the only nomination over which there will be a bitter fight. Conkling says he wants to make the fight this session,but his actions belie his words,as he is trying to lay Robertson over until December. The President tells his friends he wants Robertson confirmed, and Senator Hawley announces his purpose to move to discharge the Commerce Committee, and bring Rob ertson before the Senate, if Conkling at tempts to porket bis nomimation in com mittee. THE FIRST EXECUTIVE SESSION. The Senate bvs just gone into executive session. The motion was made by Mr. Dawes, who, in makieg it, repudiated the idea that by so doing he and his associates were giving up the fight over the Senate offices, which he considered in its scope and character as presenting a question of great importance to the future welfare of the government, involving, as it did, the right of t e majority to rule. The Vice President laid before the Senate tbe unfinished business, being the resolu tion for the election of Senate cflic*rs. Mr. Dawes took the floor and proceeded to give a brief history of the action of both sides of the Senate upon the resolution. He said tbe Senate bad not been permitted to express its own judgment. It had been paralyzed. If tbe Senate could be thus paralyzed by a desperate opposition here, the government as a whole could be blocked in its functions in Ihe same way. He characterized the opposition of the Demo crats as revolutionary and tending to wtaken and undermine the government. It devolves upon tbe Republican party to maintain a republican and repre sentative government in this coun try, and the Republican par ty again accept that responsibility. For himself, not speaking for others, he de clared that he would continue to the end the contest for that resolution, not for what it contained, but because of the priuoiple involved in it. Because it was to determine whether or not the Senate shall perform its legitimate functionns. Mr. Dawes said the R. publicans, while maintaining the au thority of the Senate, could not omit to do their duty elsewhere. Therefore, recogniz ing the necessity of this, and believing She Republicans would be strengthened by it, he would move that the Senate for a short time address itself to other busi ness, never losing sight of the principle they had been fighting for, but coming back to it. In order to provide for the needs of the government, he moved to pro ceed to the consideration of executive busi ness. Mr. Beck called for the yeas and nays. Mr. Pendleton requested Mr. Dawes to withdraw his motion for a moment. Mr. Dawes declined. Mr. Beck said he hardly thought it deco rous for Mr. Pendleton to add anything to Mr. Dawes’ funeral oration. Mr. Dawes retorted that he trusted it would be the funeral oration over the opposi tion of Mr. Beck and his party to legitimate businese. The yeas and nays were called, and re sulted in fifty-three affirmative and flo neg ative votes. The Senate accordingly went into executive session, and when the doors were re opened at 4:20, adjourned until to morrow. WHAT WAS DONE IN EXECUTIVE SESSION. The Senate, in executive session this afternoon, confirmed the following nomi nations: Robert R. Hift, of Illinois, to be Assistant Secretary of State; Hiram Price, of lowa, to be Commissioner of Indian Af fairs; A. M. Jones to be Uolted States Mar shal for the Northern district of Illinois; Sanford F. Hudson, of Wisconsin, to be Associate Justice of tbe Supreme Court of Dakota, and J. O, Jones to be Post master at Terre Haute, Ind. The 6th< r nominations on the table, nearly two hundred in number, were referred to ap propriate committees. The Senate then took up the Chinese Immigration treaty, which was discussed at some length by Senator Miller, of Cali fornia, who urged the ratification, and Senator Hoar, who opposed it. Shortly before adjournment tbe Senate laid aside the treaty as unfinished business, and con firmed a number of nominations which were reported back from the committees tc-day. Among them were the nominations of Wm. Mullinix as Postmaster at Bristol, Tenn., and Tnos. F. Black as Collector of Customs for the district of St, Mary’s, Ga. WHY GARFIELD W ANTED BRADY’S HELP. The President’s attention having been called to a letter (published this morning) alleged to have been written by him to Hon. J. A. Hubbell, from Mentor, August 231, 18S0, in which he says: “Please say to Brady that I hope he will give us all the assistance possible,” he stated there was not a line in the letter that he would have the slightest objection to giving to the public. That the star route contractors were neither mentioned cor thought of; that it was simply the expres sion of the hope that Brady, a citizen of In diana, who was reported to have made an immense fortune in Bell Telephone stock, would respond from his ample means and aid his party m the life and death struggle then going on in his own State. RECEIPTS OF SIX PER CENTS. The amount of 6 ver cent, bonds received at the Treasury Depart ment to-day for continuance at 3 per cent, was <4,700,000.

Alarm of tbe Railroada. St. Louis, May 4. —The situation in East St. Louis regarding the danger from the flxid grows more critical hour by hour. Families and merchants are remov ing. Several railroads have taken their movable stock and property from their yards on the island, and some decline to re ceive any more freight for shipment at present. The Chicago and Alton, the Ohio and Mississippi, and the Chicago, Burling ton and Quincy dykes across the slough from the island to the mainland have become so weak that they are no longer ser viceable, and these roads will remove their rolling stock from their yards on the island to safe ground. The Cairo and Bt. Louie Narrow Gauge Railroad is submerged in many places on the bottoms and operations have beee suspended. A break is already reported in the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad embankment,about a mile north of the relay depot, and the V an d&lia track is flooded some distance. Many persons have already left East St. Louis. Tbe American medical Association. Richmond, Va., May 4.—At the session of tbe American Medical Association to day a committee on nominations was chosen, who afterwaids agreed on Surgeon j. J. Woodward, of the United States ArmV) a* President. An amendment to the Code of Ethics elicited a vigorous discus sion, and was finally postponed. Addresses were delivered on the Practice of Medicine by' Dr. Wm. Pepper, of Pennsylvania, and on‘“Obstetrics and Diseases of Women,” bt J R. Chadwick, of Massachusetts. Re ports were received from several oi> the committees of the association. To-night Dr L. A. Sayre, of New York city, gave an illustrated lecture on “Disease of the Spine and Its Cure.” The sessions are very har monious. Five hundred doctors are in at tendance. The meeting closes Friday with the election.of officer*. RUSSIAN AFFAIRS. Tbe Ueikntu of Securities—Au In ciplent Revolution In tbe Baltic Provinces-Precaution* In Mos cow. London, May 4.—The Time*, in its finan cial article, eays: “The continued weakness in Russian bonds Is now traceable apparent ly to the more permanent effects of the Czar’6 murder and the serious fears of a revolution in Russia, which are now enter tained.” Berlin, May 4. — There Is much agitation in the Baltic provinces of Russia among the peasants, who desire the absolute ownership of land now held on lease. The Lutheran pastors In many parts of Esthland have re fused to administer the oath of allegiance to the Czar, or did so with manifest re luctance. ihe local press freely expresses the opinion that the government is in capable of contributing to the prosperity of the country, and regrets that the former advocates of separation have left no worthy successor. A hand bill has been distributed *” r P° rt > calling upon the inhabitants of the Baltic provinces not to swear allegiance until the Czar has granted them laws and land rights equal to those possessed by the Russian people. It urges the people to re main united, but to refrain from open re bellion. A manifesto circulated at Vindau, Cour land, says: “Let the people refuse to swear allegiance to the Czar before the Russian officials, and only swear before the local officials. We cannot longer be deceived like dogs. We must remain firm. We despise and denounce the nobility. May they disappear from Esthland like snow in spring. Whoever tears down this notice risks his life.” The above docu ments were composed in the local dialects, presumably by peasants. St. Petersburg, May 4.— The Oolos announces that it is intended to abolish pub lic executions. A person has been arrested for pasting revolutionary proclamations ap pealing to the workmen in the Kremcubies hug, Poltava (Railway workshops). The Governor of Moscow |has considerably in creased the stringency of the regulations relative to house door keepers, so as to pre vent lodgers from harboring any per sons without the knowledge of the police. “HILLY. THE KID. ’ Tbe Noted New Mexican Desperado Kills Hla Guards and Escapes. Banta Fe, New Mexico, May 4—A tele gram from Socorro, sent by special messen ger from Lincoln, informed Governor Wal lace that the notorious outlaw, “Billy, the Kid,” in jail at Lincoln, the county seat of Lincoln county, under sentence of death, managed to kill his guards, Deputy Sheriff J. W. Bell and United States Marshal Robert Olluger, by shooting them, and effecting his escape. “Billy, the Kid” is quite a young mau, but a most noted desperado. He was very prominent in the Lincoln county troubles three years ago, in the murder of Sheriff Brady and two Deputy Sheriffs, in the murder of Tunetall and Roberts, and oth ers. He was captured last fall, after a des perate fight, by Deputy Sheriff Garrett,who received a large reward for his capture. He was tried at the District Court at Lamesiila and convicted of triple murder, and ten teuced by Judge Bristol to be hauged at Lincoln on the 13th of May. He applied to Governor Wallace for a pardon, but was refused. This noted man is now again at large, and it is feared his capture can only be effected by much bloodshed. Governor Wallace will offer a large reward for his apprehension. CHICAGO’S HEALTH. The “Daily News’ ” Scatblug Review ol the Sauitary State of the City.

FLASHES FROM AUGUSTA RAILWAY PLANS AND PROS PECTS. Tbe Augusta and Knoxville Rail road—The Work to be Pushed— Par Refused bv tbe Cltv ot Augus ta lor Ita Stock—Another Strong Railroad Combination Suggested— Central and Georgia Stocks—A Murderer Convicted. Augusta, May 4. —The stockholders of the Augusta and Knoxville Road to day re solved to make such mortgages on the prop erty as would complete lt to Spartanburg and meet the Virginia Midland. Work on the Iron bridge across the Savannah river Is now going on, and trains over this road will move the next crop. Par was offered to the city of Augusta to-day for its stock in this road, but the Mayor declined it. The offer came from the direction of the East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia Railroad. If Mr. Plant’s friends could get this road they would connect the East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia Railroad system through the Port Royal and Augusta Road with the Charleston aud Bavannah Railroad, thus formtDg a large and commanding com bination, and such possibly was suggested to-day by the offer. Central stock advanced to-day from 141 to to 145, with sales at 1443*. Georgia is strong at 154 Andereon Jones, colored, was convicted of murder here to day for the second time. He killed a young white man, John G. Haralson, in Mcßean, on the Central Rail road, two years ago.

C., and thence to Spartanburg. A resolution was unani mously adopted authorizing the Board of Directors to make any arrangements that may be satisfactory with the Virginia or North Carolina Midlaud Railroad for a through line from Baltimore to Augusta.

The Object of the Freucb Protec torate Over Tunis—Fanaticism at Work—The Hey’a Rrotber Watch ed—A Secret Mission ol tbe Italian Dragoman. London, May 4.—The Paris correspondent of the News says he is assured that nothing will be done to force on Tunis a French civil or military administration. The object of the French protectorate will be not to subject Tunis to France, but to exclude any other power from trying to secure a foothold with a view to its eventual absorption. There will probably be a permanent military occupa tion of some strategical points. The last portion of this dispatch conflicts with the statement made in Par liament by Sir Chas. W. Dllke, Under Foreign Secretary. A dispatch from Tunis savs: “The Prime Minister, on learning of the French occupa tion of Biserta, summoned the principal re ligious bodies to a conference, and they af terwards proceeded to Keronan with the ob ject of preaching a holy war.” Signor Postalozza, the dragoman at the Italian Consulate, went on the 29. h ultimo to the camp of Ali Bey on a secret mission. He returned on the 21 inst., aud held a con ference with the Tunisian General Bakous. The Tunisian police closely watch Tald Bey, the brother of ihe Bey of Tunis, whose French sympathies are well known. Sev eral sheikhs, who were preaching a holy war, have been arrested and brought to Tunis. The Bey has returned to the Bardo Palace, believing that he is unsafe in his ordinary residence.

The former system is still continued, but the completion of the Way cross Railroad, by which all the Northern and Western mails now reach this State, and the sweeping changes in the schedules permit you to publish the even ing edition at a later hour, giving your readers the advantage of seven or eight hours later in telligence than they formerly received. Many compliments were paid the News for this fresh evidence of enterprise, hnd perhaps nothing could have occurred that more satis factorily demonstrated the stride forward that our city has taken. Kindly opinions were expressed that the new departure of the News would greatly enhance its present reputation, and render its columns sti.l more valuable to its long list of subscribers. No journal has labored more zealously and industriously for the material interests of Florida than has the News. Politically, soci ally and commercially, it has always striven to promote the welfare and prosperity of the people of this State, and tbe value of its ser vices is attested by its present large and con stantly iocrea-ing circulation. Diuet sarnper floreat! Asa matter of information to those who attended court at Jasper last week, as well as in justice to the worthy and efficient Sheriff of this county, who was charged by some persons with not having promptly performed his duties in the premises, the following statement, ob tained from Deputy Sheriff Kelly, is presented: Gen. Jenkins, the witness required, had been regularly summoned by subpoena. This was supplemented by an attachment issued bv Judge Vann, which writ was served on General Jenking, by Mr Kelly, last Wednesday, the27th ultimo. Mr. Kelly, upon receiving the assur ance of General Jenkins that he would be at the train in the afternoon to take the cars for Jasper, took no harsh steps to deprive that gentleman of his liberty. Before the departure of the tram, Gen. Jenkins took the steamer Deßary and went up the river. Such are the facts as obtained from the officer i ’**ntioned. In the office of Major Sam Fairbanks, Astor block, in this city, can be seen three rare and elegant engravings, executed in the finest style of art, representing the “Cipture of Deanire” and the “Education of Achilles,” by ilervic, and “Daphnis and Chloe,” by Gelse. These works are well known to the artists of the world, and are notable for their excellence. Two of them were pictured in Harper's Maga zine, a year or two since, in a biographical sketch of the distinguished engraver. The history of these particular engravings is some what interesting. When Joseph Bonaparte, ihe oldest brothe r of Napoleon, after the battle of Waterloo, escaped to this country, he brought with him maoy of the works of art that had adorned his home in Fiance, and used them to embellish his new resi -ence at Bordentown, New Jersey. After some years, he presented several to his daughter Caroline, who was born in this coun try about 1820. Mr. Fairbanks obtained the three mentioned from the daughter in 1835. In 1870 the lady was invited to France by Louis Napoleon, and b came a guest of the Emperor. After the breaking out of the Franco-German war she passed over to Eng land with the Empress Eugenie, an.l returned to this country, where she is still residing. Mr. Fairbanks gives to his friends more de tailed reminiscences connected with these en gravings, which are curious and interesting, concerting Napoleon the First, Joseph Bona parte and Louis Napoleon, as also Lucien Mu rat, Count Real, Marsnal Grouchy, and other great personages famous in history. Avery interesting religious ceremony occur red last Sunday inJßrouklyn, one of our su buibs, upon the occasion of the dedication of St. Stephen’s chapel. Bishop Young, of this t.iis diocese, most appropriate dis. course. The little building is a neat Gothic structure, and was most tastefully decorated with flowers and evergreens. St. John’s, the parent church, has now three chapels in La Villa, Brooklyn and East Jacksonville, and has the largest membership of any church of this denomination in the btate, numbering about three hundred and fifty. The annual diocesan council of the Episco pal Church will assemble in this city to mor row, and the clergymen of the various tarishes are already arriving. The session is always one of great interest, and will probably con sume the remainder of the week. It is pleas • ant to know that this branch of the Protestant church is steadily gaining strength and influ ence in Florida. While on my trip of last week I had the pleasure of meeting Col. Sam Stephens, of Gads den, and learned from him that the good peo ple of that fine county were earnestly consid ering the propriety of erecting several addi tional Clement attachments, 3he success of the factory at Chattahoochee has at last con vinced them that more money can be made by manufacturing than by raising cotton, and the converts to this view of the subject will invest some of their idle shekels in this enter prise If yarn can be produced at the South one and a half cents per pound cheaper than at the North, there is a huge bonanza in the business, and it must grow into one of large dimensions. It is a mine whose leads are long and wide, and which will bring golden results. Now, if the Gadsden people will only go to work and put up a mill for obia mng tbe oil aad meal found in cotton seed, they would manifest additional public spirit and hew out another road to independence. Thousands of tons of cotton seed are now shipped to Ihe mills of Europe, to be worked up very profita bly into olive oil, cattle feed and fertilizers. Why not do the work here, where the crude material abounds, save the freight across the Atlantic, and restore the meal to the earth where it properly belongs ? It has always seemed to me the apex of folly to sell cotton seed, one of the finest manures known, rich in all the elements of plant food, aud with the proceeds either purchase guano, or permit the land ta deteriorate for want of a stimulant. And yet this wasteful and insane policy is practised in many por tions of Florida. In the meantime the rich proprietors of the cotton and oil mills in this country,as also the manufacturers of commer cial fertilizers, as they contemplate compla cently their swelling back account, smile se renely at their good fortune, and sneer at our stupidity and blindness. Our well-fed, well-dressed and well-mannered guests have, in the main, departed. They are missed, and will be welcomed again next win ter. The long, cool piazzas of the different hotels no longer show groups of stately dow agers, placid stock brokers and pairs of flirting couples, A few weeks to look after business and to prepare summer wardrobes, and away go most of the people to Europe, or to New [) >rt. Long Branch, Saratoga or elsewhere. Life with many of these favorites of fortune is a constant round of frivolity and amuse ment, with few cares or anxieties. Business along Bay street still continues ac tive, and the trains and steamers still bring and carry away good freights. The wants of the growing population up the river are constantly making fresh demands upon our merchants, and that class of tne community are making no complaints. With the advent of May comes in the season for excursions, and yesterday the streets were thronged with negroes from Fernandina and St. Augustine, arrayed in holiday attire, and apparently as free from trouble as the swal lows circling above their heads. Jolly and unconcerned philosophers are they, contented with tbe present, and giving little thought to the future. A fund of amusement is extracted from every trifling incident, and their hearty cachinatiun denotes more of contentment than of vacuity. Even when they attain manhood and womanhood, few of the race “put away childish things,” and they will always be ad dicted to “the pomps and vanities of this wicked world.” I saw a colored drum-major yesterday, marching along at the head of a band, his no ble brows encircled by a towering bear skin helmet, in his hands a ponderous baton, while a bewildering maze of cords, tassels and deco rations enveloped bis many thorax. Although the thermometer was in the nineties, and the perspira’ion trickled from hit clun in little rivulets, there were no signs of exhaustion in his stern, unflinching eye, no faltering in his firm, determined stride. No descendant of the Caesars, in the imperial days of Rome, ever trod the streets of the Seven Hills City with a bearing more kingly, or a deportment more majestic. His cup of ambition was full to the brim, and earth had nothing more to offer. Mr. Joe Haddock, who supplies much of the beef consumed in this market, and who trav erses a large portion of the State in search of stock, estimates the losses among the cattle last winter, from the severity of the season, and its lengthly continuance, at from thirty three to fifty per cent. Accounts from o.her sources confirm this statement. Circuit Court for this county convened this morning. There is an average civil docket, while the criminal department is smaller than usual. Under the management of Judge Baker, the business of the court is expected to be considerably expedited, and the expenses consequent thereon largely reduced. Vegetables are moving Northward in con siderable and increasing quantities, and are bringing remunerative prices. Everything in this line is some weeks behind the usual sea son. line strawberries are plentiful, and even a newspaper man can sometimes venture upon a banquet of this delightful fruit. Blackber ries are putting in their appearance, and for some weeks the vagrant blacks are assured of plenty of provender. Appearances indicate a fair yield of peaches. The crop last year was an utter and complete failure. A number of invitations, good for thirty days for a trip to Savannah, and Charleston, have been issued by the managers of the Way cross and Charleston Roads, and you will, no doubt, see several of our people during that period. The thanks of the writer are returned tor a compliment of this character W. H. B.

A MANIFESTO FROM THE LEAGUE Bradlaugh Perslateut—Distress for Rent of Farms Abolished—Herr Most Indicted and His Case Set for Trial—Pagan to Take Dillon’s Seat —An Arrest In Gal way—Prohibition in Wales. London, May 4 —lt is stated that Mr. Bradlaugh will again enter tbe House of Commons and demand that be be sworn if the bill for the amendment of the Parlia mentary oath act is considerably delayed. The bill Is not likely to pass quickly, as the House Is much pressed with other affairs. In the House of Commons, the Speaker said he had received official notice from the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland of the arrest of John Dillon, M. P. Mr. Thomas P. O’Connor, Home Rule member lor Galway borough, asked several questions touching abuse of authority. Mr. Forster, Chief Secretary for Ireland, did not answer the questions. Mr. Heaiy, Home Rule member for Wex ford borough, gave notice of his intention to move to add Mr. Dillon to the committee on the conservancy of rivers. The grand jury has found a true bill against Herr Most, the publisher of Freihext, the Socialist organ, for Inciting to murder, with a rider, that such publications are un- English and ought to be vigorously dealt wbh. The Central News states that Mr. Dillon will to-morrow vacate his seat in the House of Commons, and that Mr. Patrick Eagan will probably succeed him as member for Tipperary. In the House of Commons last night Mr. Rowland P. Blennerliasset (Home Ruler), member for Kerry, moved a resolution In favor of abolishing the power of levying distress for rent of agricultural holdings in Great Britain and Ireland. The govern ment supported the resolution, and it was agreed’to without division. lu the House of Commons to-day the bill for the closing of barrooms In Wales on Sundays was read a second time. Mr. Gladstone spoke In support of the bill. Justice Denman, in the Central Criminal Court to day, refused to nostpone the trial of Herr Most, editor of Freiheit, until tbe next, term, and set the case for Friday or Saturday. Michael Bruen has been arrested under the coercion act near Clifden, county Gal way, on the charge of inciting to murder. He was conveyed to Galwav. A manifesto of the National Land League of Great Britain touching the arrest of Mr. Dillon has been issued. It is signed by Justin McCarthy. It urges the Irishmen of Great Britain to evict their landlords as they themselves have been evicted, and to wreak vengeance at the polls ou the apostates from Liberalism whom they helped to raise to power. INDIANA ELECTIONS. Republican* Successful in ludlau* apolis and Ricbiuoud. Indianapolis, May 4.—At the muuicipal election yesterday the entire Republican ticket was elected. The majority for D. W. Grubbs for Mayor will be between two and three hundred, while for the balance of the ticket the majorities raDge from ten to fif teen hundred, which is about the usual majority. Tbe Council stands eighteen Re publicans to seven Democrats, and the Boaid of Aldermen eight Republicans to two Democrats. At Richmond, Ind., the entile Republican ticket was elected. Tbe Oklahoma Land Question. Galveston, May 4.—A dispatch from Little, Rock, Ark , dated May 3J, referring to the decision of Judge Parker, yesterday, at Fort Smith, in the ca=e of the United 8 ates vs. Captain David L. Payne, that tone of the land of the Indian Territory is auhj.ct to white settlement, the Indians holdiiig proprietorship absolutely and with out reserve, says It is generally accepted as conclusive, aud a number of prospective settlers camped on the border awaiting a judicial decision have begun to migrate elsewhere. Tbe Profit* ot Lake Shore. Cleveland, May 4 —The stockholders of the Lake ’.Shore Railroad met here to-day and re elected all the old directors and offi cers. The reports showed the net earnings of the year to be nearly $2,000,000 greater than last year, and large enough to leave a surplus of $1 300,000 after paying an eight per cent, dividend. Mrs Louisa G. Allan ;aml Edgar A. Poe. New York Times. Mrs. Louisa G. Allan, who has just died at 83, in Richmond, and whom'the di.-patches declare to have been the fos ter-mother of Edgar Allan Poe, was not the first wife of Mr. Allan, but the sec ond, and appears to have had a great deal to do with the final and permanent rupture between Poe and the man by whom he had been adopted. The first Mrs. Allan was one of the best friends be ever bad, and most of bis biographers have agreed in saying that when she died a turning point in his fortunes 4 had been reached. She loved him more than her husband did, who seems to have been proud rather than fond of him. The public will probably never obtain a satisfactory explanation of that unfortunate quarrel*; but if Mrs. Allan, who died the other day, had always remained Miss Patter son, and Mr. Allan had remained a widower to the end of the few years then left to him, Poe’s fortune and career would beyond doubt have been very different from what they were. When he was adopted by the Allans they were childless, and their ample fortune was gener ously drawn upon to educate, amuse, and pamper the brilliant boy. He grew up with the notion that he was to be John Allan's heir, and had the first Mrs. Allan lived five years longer he probably would have been. She died in 1829, and her husband in 1834. The second marriage took place about 1830, and Poe’s troubles then grew apace. The new Mrs. Allan did not like him—if not from the start, especially after her first child was born—and the sensitive Poe naturally resented her un just treatment. Three children came of ibis marriage, all boys, who, while mere babies, found themselves heirs to John Allan’s estate. Poe was cut off without a dollar. One of the many recent writers on Poe—Mrs. Weiss—who knew him in his last days at Richmond, has declared that the quarrel was simply a family affair, which was not in the first instance the fault of Poe; that “he “received extreme pro vocation and insult, and that of all the parties concerned it appears that he was tbe least culpable and the most wronged.” It is generally believed that Poe left the bouse and never returned to it as a mem ber of the family or a guest. When Mr. Allan was on his deathbed Poe learned that his foster-father had spoken kindly of him and expressed a desire to see him, aud accordingly went to the house. But he sought an interview in vain. Mr. Allan, Mrs. Weiss says, was not even informed of his call, and died without seeing him. A University Chancellor as Forger. Count Huming Hamilton, Chancellor of the University of Lund and Upsala in Sweden, and director of a num ber of public institutions, has been peremptorily dismissed from all bis of fices and deprived of his dignities, on account of forgery and embezzlement to the amount of 700,000 crowns, which had been collected in the country for a national monument. One lady of the aristocracy has also lost her whole fortune of 200,000 crowns, which she had entrusted to the Count’s manage ment. The affair has caused the most painful impression at Stockholm, more especially as the names of the King and Sueen have been abused. Count uming Hamilton belongs to one of the first noble families in Sweden, and is related to the Hamiltons of Scottish fame. He was at one time Councillor of State, head of the ecclesiastical de partment, and later on Swedish Minister at Copenhagen, where, in 1863, he endeavored to bring about an alliance between Denmark and Scandinavian countries. A Fight Between Army Officers. Arizona Democrat. A duel was fought at Fort Douglas, Utah, on March 26, in which Captain Western and Surgeon Lecompte were principals. The duel arose over a lady—the pretty, high-tempered wife of one of the officers ot the post. While the officers and their ladies were dining one day Dr. Lecompte awkwardly stepped on her dress and re ceived a sharp rebuke for it, whereupon he apologized. Captain Western was drawn into the quarrel which ensued, and he and the surgeon were placed in antagonism, and it became noised about that a challenge to fight a duel had been issued, and that shooting would grow out of the affair the tmt time that they met. After matters had reached this stage both went armed aud ou their guard, and after a word or two, while both were at close quarters, revolvers were drawn and fired. The Captain’s shot passed through the Doctor’s right hand and entered his side, while the surgeon’s bullet missed its mark. At the next tire the surgeon’s shot shattered the Captain’s arm, and the next entered the Captain's side. The Captain fell, and the Doctor, whose pis tol hand was wounded, discontinued the duel. Since that time Capt. Western has been practically incapacitated for duty The advantage of living in a country so vast that no crop can lie a failure in all parts of it is illustrated by late re ports from the wheat fields. Cool head ed men in Minnesota are predicting a large yield of the best quality, owing to the reserves of moistuie stored in the soil at an unusual chptli, while from Ohio word comes that the crop of 1881, contrary to premature reports, is likely to be above tbe average and may be the largest ever harvested in the State. With these comfortable promises to lean on, it is not worth while to derpond over the news from Kansas. The Leavenworth Times frankly admits that the wheat crop of that State will undoubtedly fall very much below tbe average. According to that journal there has been no little un warranted boasting of an enormous yield, but it, is more honest and a better policy to face the disagreeable facb The prospects were never better for a great crop than on March Id, but that month has a habit of upsetting many fair hopes, and has done its worst by hundreds of wheat fields. £*3kin() i’oinlcr. fSI iJp c POWDER Absolutely Pure.
