The Senate lmmedtatelc after going Into executive session this afternoon resumed the contest, which was begun yesterday over the Domination of Clifford Stratham to be Postmaster at Lynchburg, Va. Mr. Hill, of Georgia, took the floor in op positimto its confirmation, and spoke for two hours. The debate was then continued by Messrs. Morgan, Morril', Hoar, Sherman and others at great length, the discussion running substantially upon the same lffies of argument as yesterdaj; the political features of the case aud the importance at tached to its palpable bearings upou the re sult of the Impending elections in Virginia being, however, more openly expressed and distinctly empas'zed. The speeches were interspersed with a number of roll calls on motions to adjourn and other dilatory pro ceedings, and were also diversified by a spirited colloquy between Senators Logan and Voorhees as to which of the two had heretofore shown himselt the better friend of Union soldiers. About 6 o’clock in the evening a vote on a mrtlon to adjourn dhclcsed the fact that no quorum was present, and a call of the Senate was ordered. All 1 roeeedlngs were then suspended while the Sergeant-at Arms and his deputies were engaged In huntlDg up and bringing In accessible Senators. Meanwhile an elegant lunch was spread lu the room of the Committee on Appropria tions, and the Senators who had remained at the capltol whiled an hour or two In tbe pleasures of table and other social enjoy ment. Soon after nine o’clock upwards of fifty members were present In the Senate chamber, but when the vote was taken on another motion to adjourn It was found that less than a quorum responded to the call of their namt-s, as a large number of them were paired with Senators s’tll absent. At half past ten o’clock business was still suspended, with no indications of any speedy break of the deadlock. I? Is learned, however, that a call for a Republican cau cus has been issued for to-morrow morning, which seems to render it improbable that the present contest of endurance between the two parties will be prolonged through ou‘ tbe night. The conjectured motive of the Issuance of this call is a desire to dissuade certain R publ cms from abandoning tbe present struggle by leaving the city for tbeir re spective homes. It is prlv.tely argued by these R“puolieans that every advantage expected to be obtained by the confirmation of Mr. Stratham’s nomi nation can just as well be secured by h‘.s appointmeut by the Presi dent immedia’elv after an adjournment of tbe Sanate sine die, and as tbe Democrats threatened to prevent final setion upon tbe ques'lon of confirmation until after the Virginia election, on the Bth proximo, U 1* contended ibat persistence in tbe attempt to confirm the nomination may entirely sacri fice the principal benefit indicated and piove worse than usele?s. TELEGRAPHIC SIMMONSES. Midnight.—At eleven o’clock the Senate dlreced the Sergeant at-Arms to request the attendance of Senators, whether in or absen* from Washington. Telegrams were accordingly sent by Mr. Bright to about twen'y Senators at their respective homes, who have paired and left Washington. MORGAN’S TELEGRAM.

It is understood that n<> others will be sent in during the remainder of the present ses sion. PAYING THE PENALTY, A Brutal Negro murderer Hanged at Charlotte.

Official engagements impera tively detain me and deprive me of the privilege of enforcing my views by a public address. Jas G. Blaine. Ex Governor McEnery, of Louisiana, then made a motion to reconsider the vote by which the supplement to tbe report of the Committee on Resolutions was rejected by the convention yesterday, aud the motion to reconsider was adopted almost unanimously. [This resolution was prematurely reported yesterday as having been adopted.] An amendment was offered bv Mr. Shields, of Missouri, striking out the words “in makiug appropriations to improve the navi gation of the Mississippi and its tribu taries.” Mr. Underwood, of Kentucky, offered an amendment to the amedment as follows : Resolved, lhat we Invite the attention of Congress to all other practical water routes connecting tbe Mississippi with the Atlantic seaboard. After a heated discussion, the amendment of Mr. Shields was adopted, and tbe resolu tion so amended was adopted hy a vote of 210 to fO. Mr. Mitchell McEnnis, President of the Merchants’ Exchange of this city, offered the following resolution: Resolved, That this convention fully ap preciates the action of the friends of river improvement in Congress in advancing and sustaining it by tbeir votes and in granting such needed appropriations as are neces sary to carry on the work already com menced for the improvement of our West ern water ways, and we trust that their endeavors In promotiig the interests of commerce will finally be crowned with suc cets. The resolution was unanimously adopted. A resolution of regret for the death of President Garfield, who was one of the fore most friends of river improvement, was ad >pted. Addresses were made by Con grtsemei Willett, of Kentucky, and Spriugt-r, of Illinois, after which the con vention adjourned sine die. THE GERMAN ELECTIONS. The Government Left In a minority General Opposition Gains. Berlin, October 28.—1n the polling here for members of the Reichstag yesterday no Conservative or Anti-Semitic candidate re ceived enough votes to entitle him to enter as a candidate in the second ballot. Herr Henricl, a notorious Jew hater, only received eight hundred votes out of 40,000. The news from the provinces denotes a strengthening of the Liberal ranks. The defeat of the Conservatives Is moat signifi cant in places where the government bad put forth all its strength to support them. A large force of police was on duty in the streets here during the day, and numerous arrests were made. Tbe figures giving the reeult of elections here are very significant. Prof. Virchow, (Progressist) polled 17,400 votes against 11,200 for Rev. Dr. Stoecker, the Court preacher and leader of the Anti-Semitic movement. In two cases a second ballot is required Toe Social Democrats have developed formidable strength. Herr Babel polled 13,574 votes against 19,520 for Herr Tracer, the Progressist candidate, and 8,239 for the Conservative candidate. Herr Hazen clever polled 10 647 votes against 1,889 for Herr K’otz the Progress-ist candidate. The votes cast for each of the other candidates were ius'gidflcar.t, but in the aggregate were sufficient to pseveDt a majority for any one candidate, and to render a fresh ballet nccet sary.

London, October 28.—Mr. Gladstone, In the course of his reply to an address pre sented to him at Knowslev yesterday, said the point was whether Ireland is to be gov erned by laws made by Parliament or by laws known to nobody and wrtten nowhere, except in the brains of a few persons, and enforced by an illegal, arbitrary and self appointed association, which sought to over-ride by an organized attempt the free will of Irishmen.

SCALDED AND DROWNED. A HORROR ON THE MISSISSIPPI. A Steamboat Daubed Against tbe Pier or a Bridge—Safety Vaivea Uncovered—Tbe Helpless Passen gers aud Drunken Crew Wrapped In Steam—Harried Down the Htver—A Costly Sacrifice to Folly. New York, October 28.—A Herald special from Davenport, lowa, furnishes the fol lowing: “The steamer Gilchrist left this port laet night In apparently good trim and condition, bound for all points up the river, loaded with a large and valuable cargo of miscellaneous freight and carrying in her cabin a full list of passengers. When the steamer had passed under the government bridge spanning the Mississippi and connecting the cities of Da venport and Rock Island, tbe cam rods of the engine suddenly gave way, causing the* entire machinery to become unmanageable and useless. The river was very high, owing to the recent extensive floods, and the cu r rent unusually rapid. So when the Gilchrist had no longer her machinery to keep her bow up stream, the swiftly running river carried the helpless vessel down stream at a rapid and appalling rate. Being so near the bridge the steamer was thrown with tremendous and resistless force against one of the abutments. “As ttie Gilchrist came lu collision with the enormous mass of stone, she careened, caus ing the weights on the safety valves of the sti am ches?. to break from tbeir fastenings an i slide off Tbe valves no longer hold ing a check on the steam In the boilers, it poured out in huge volumes, and enveloped the hopeless crew and pas sengers, who were wildly endeavoring to secure life preservers lu the main saloon, and scalded many of them in an awful man ner. “No sooner had the steamer rebounded from the second shock of the colllslou than she began sinking, in which condition she was carried past the city, the shrieks and cries for help uttered by tbe frenzied victims being distinctly audible to a large crowd of citizens, who soon thronged the banks. But they could extend no assistance, as the steamer was hurled past their eves by the turbulent river. AH of the small boats and skiffs, usually numerous on the river, had been drawn ashore and latd away for the winter and to escape the floods which have prevailed all along the course of the Mississippi river for nearly a fortnight. So there was no means of speedily reaching the slnkiDg steamer. Other steamers lying at the bank immediately went to her assist ance, and are actively at work searching for survivors. “I learn that there were on board twenty three passengers, four of whom were females, and a crew of fifteen. Only eight persons have been saved so far, and of these some are very badly scalded. Three of the lady passengers are known to have been killed or scalded to death. The city is In great excitement, and everything possible Is b ing done to relieve the unfortunates. There is but little hope that any more can be saved.” Rock Island, Ills., October 28.—Fur ther intelligence from the scene of the wreck of the sieamer Jennie Gilchrist is to the effect that seventeen persons in all were lost aud seventeen saved. The other passengers might have been saved If they had yielded to the entreaties of the more cool headed, who went among them before the steamer struck the pier and urged them to get on board a barge. The latter even tried to drag them from the cabin, but they were so terrified and powerless that they could make no effort to save themselves. Tiie steamtr bad In tow a barge aud one flat boat. Tne latter was being pushed at the bow of the steamer, while ihe barge was fastened to the port side. There seems to be no doubt that the steamer was totally unfit for the work expected from her. She was heavily laden, and most of her crew were drunk. Furthermore, the was merely a freight boat, aud not licensed to csrry passengers' Tne accident was entirely due to carelessness aud liquor. There was a good deal of whisky in the cargo, and some of it was tapped before the steamer left tbe wharf. BRIEF NEWS SUMMARY.

The Platform Adopted by tbe Com* mnntat Convention at Chicago— Armed Organizations of Working men Indorsed. The following was adopted by the National Socialists’ Convention, at Chi cago. Tuesday: “This party shall be called the Revo lutionary Socialistic party. “It be composed of all organized groups recognizing the revolutionary principles adopted by this Congress. Each group shall enjoy entire autonomy, and shall judge for itself the right and proper way of propaganda suitable to its locality, provided it be consistent with the platform and resolutions of the party. ‘ Each group is advised to call itself after the name of the city in which it is located. “Five members shall be deemed suf ficient to form a group. “A bureau of information shall be es tablished in Chicago, composed of a sec retary for each principal language spo ken, and one for French correspondence. Its duty shall be the recording of all ex isting groups or organizations, and those hereafter organized; to keep up a cor respondence with the secretaries of groups and exchange information, and to correspond with all organized groups of the Old World, recognizing the revo lutionary principles contained in our platform. Gioups wishing to be record ed must have the indorsement of an ex isting group near its locality, and must give its membership. “Ten groups shall have the right to call a national convention. Applicants for membership shall sign a pledge de claring their conviction in the party principles.” The Committee on Resolutions re ported the following, which were adopt ed: “Resoved, That we hereby ratify the action of the Congress of the Interna tional Working People’s Association, re cently held in London, and, acting upon its advice, we have organized ourselves in the United States in conformity with the condition and circumstances sur rounding us. “Resolved, That we hereby extend, on behalf of the defenders of liberty every where, our heartfelt thanks to the So cialists of Russia for their unrelenting war upon the evils of Czarism, and they have our unqualified support in employ ing any and all means to extirpate such monsters from among men. “Resolved, That the Congress assem bled recognize the armed organizations of workingmen who stand ready with the gun to resist the encroachments upon their rights, and recommend the forma tion of like organizations all over the States. “ Resolved, That under no circum stances are our members allowed to vote for any person, or with any party, which does not absolutely approve of this plat form.” After some unimportant routine busi ness the Congress adjourned sine die, and the citizens went to their homes, such as had any. The meeting of the Congress has attracted very little atten tion, and in point of general interest has been a failure. The Ninth Massachusetts Regiment In Hk-hmond. A Washington lettetsays: “Northern men here, and especially those from New England, are very much mortified by the disgraceful conduct of a portion of the Ninth Massachusetts Regiment while in Richmond during the Centennial cele bration at Yorktown. They say the regiment ought to be severely disciplined when they return to Boston, but excuse them by suggesting that they are roughs from the lower wards of the city, and not true representatives of Boston ‘cul chaw.’ The Boston Cadets were ex pected to play that role,while the Ninth, being well drilled and supposed to be well disciplined, was sent to Yorktown to perform the real soldier duty for the Bay State. The Ninth are fine soldierly looking, muscular fellows, and in dress and appearance look more like real sol diers than any volunteer organization that hes visited Washington for a long time. Too much whisky and contempt for the police authorities of a Southern city are said to have been responsible for the disgrace they brought upon Boston by hugging women on the streets, standing courtesans on their heads upon the sidewalks, and similar lawless pranks. Their conduct was skillfully pointed to by Democratic orators in Virginia as illustrative of the kind of ‘civilization’ that Malione, Dawes, Gorham and that class of re formers sought to introduce into the Old Dominion. Until the end of the campaign that closes in Virginia within two or three weeks the Ninth Massa chusetts will furnish an argument to fiiDg at the heads of Democrats who have been inclined to vote with the Mahone Republican coalition. “The field officers of the regiment in dignantly deny the charges brought against their men, but the testimony of uninterested persons who returned from Yorktown by way of Richmond, con firm the accounts given in some of <he newspapers of the affair, and the officers are doubtless unable to account for the doings of their men at all times. The men say they were unaccustomed to the negro in his native element, and amused themselves with them to an extent that was distasteful to the people of Rich mond. And that they so often heard themselves denounced as ‘damned Yan kees,’ ‘Boston bean-crackers’ and similar insulting remarks, that they are thor oughly disgusted with the little they know of the South by actual experience. This affair and the Yorktown business arc likely to be the subject of a long newspaper controversy.” A Policeman Shot Dead by Burg laks. —A telegram from Lansingburg, N. Y., October 23d, says; “At about U o’clock this morn;ng th* dead body of Policeman Mosher Burnham was found in an alley near Canal street, in this vil lage. The body was still warm. Bum ham lay with his face on the ground, and his right hand near his pocket, as though about to draw his pistol. An examina tion showed that he had been shot through the body, the ball entering near the base of the stomach, passing through the liver and fracturing the spinal column. A kit of burglars’ tools and a pair of No. 7 Congress gaiters were found near the corpse, A little later it was learned that a burglary had been committed at John Mullen’s on Canal street, and it is supposed that the burg lars were surprised by Burnham, and kdled him to make good their escape.

The way porter house steaks came by their name is as follows ; In the year 1814 a man named Morrison kept a fa mous porter honsg jq te of New York, and as he had discovert and that steaks cut from the small end of the sir loin were tbe best to be had, he contract ed with his butcher to save of those steaks for him. And so the butcher used to say to his men, have you cut the porter house steaks, or are the porter house steaks ready? and hence the name. Porter house steaks, by the way, are hardly known in England. ’ * OLD TIME’S WHIRLIGIG. HONEST JOHN SHERMAN S RUN TO COVER. Turning Stall ’a Evidence—Not to be a Scapegoat bra Large majority— Tbe Louisiana Pariahs Hayes’ lirab wins to be Hustled Out—Sena torial Dignity Ruffled. Washington, October 27.—The Hon. John Sherman, who now occupies the position of Senator from the late State of Ohio, has been hanging out In a most pitiable attitude for some time past John is nothing if not honest. From the best of his information and belief he was of the opinion that the report upon the Treasury investigation did not reflect in any manner whatever upon his management of the Treasury Department. Certain ribald men of the press, among whom I am proud to en roll my name, said that it did, and fur thermore, that the investigation was cut short because honest John was being uncov ered to an extent that, for a reform man and an aspirant for the Presidency, would, to put it mildly, hardly do. So John got up in the Senate some days ago and called for the report under the belief that there was nothing in it that could reflect upon the man who, in his own person, he considers the greatest financier that ever lived. That he was not entirely .at isfied in his own mind that the report was a thoroughly whitewashing document was shown by his vacillation and the assistance which he called in from his brother Republicans to stave off the calling for the report. But it had to come. Sherman had gone too far to back ont. He knew that the evidence upon which tbe report was based was damaging, and resisted all efforts to have it called for. With the aid of the late lamented Davis he prevented the evidence being called for. But when the report was called for and came in it was a whitewashy affair; in fact.it reflected very naturally upon the honesty of John, the honest John Sherman, of Ohio. It was a very bad report and sustained everything that bald been published about the Treasury stealings in the News, and even in the wildest and most unreliable of other papers. It would have been a confession of guilt for our honest friend to have rested there. So he mounts himself on liis feet and calls for an investigation of tbe whole Treasury business. And in the resolution to that effect he included an investigation of the Treasury contingent expenses of 1871. That sliowe 1 the native shrewdness of John. He Knew that there was a spirit abroad in the pres ent administration to hunt him down and un cover him whenever his foxy hide could be held to the public .view. So he wanted to include the period of Grant’s incumbency, that the irregularities then existent might be shown alongside his. That reso lution also went over for a day, the friends of President Grant seeing what John was after. It was a neat fence between a man guilty of frauds and the friends of a man under whose administration of eight years as executive it had been known that such frauds existed. And this proposed investigation Sherman was bold enough to ask to be placed in the hands of the Finance Committee of the Senate of which he is a member. That was too bold. It was too cheeky. So Sherman finally had to content himself with the adoption of a resolution that the Appropriation Committee of the Senate investigate the contin gent expenses and disbursements of all the departments. In this Sherman may be said to have gained a point. He waited to forestall the House taking up the matter and making an investigation. The House would have formed a committee of stalwarts and Democrats, and, to say the least, would have made it very unpleasant fo- Job* He thinks he stands a better show with the Senate committee than he would with a com mittee of the House, and h • is right. But still the living King, in the presence of Arthur, will weigh much more with the Senate Appropria tions Committee than the present Senator from Ohio. The committee has a very big field before them. They are to investigate all the departments as to the disbursement of the contingent fund. Every department is honeycombed with fraud. In every one of them—and I know whereof I speak— thers is a select ring which has managed things to suit themselves, and have grown fat on the proceeds. There has been for years a system of undisturbed and very fat stealings for these rings—and how they have profited thereby! It has been steal, steal, steal, and nothing said about it. It was a big thiDg while it lasted, and it lasted for years. The Appro priations Committee of the Senate, in making its investigition into these several depart ments, can unearth villaiDy that will be much worse than is contained In the stealings devel oped in the partial Treasury Department re velations. LOUISIANA POLITICIANS. The Louisiana politicians are bobbing up serenely. They have bobbed up serenely to the time that the mind of man does not run against. The Louisiana people have been here for some time hovering around and seeing how they may come under the new dpal. The Louisiana Republicans who hunted with the Hayes hounds are now perfectly willing, nay anxious, to run with the Arthur fox. But they do not seem to make any great headway. It is the fellows from Louisiana who were staunch to Grant, and who held out for him, and were therefore given nothing by Hayes and Sherman but kicks, who were atop. They have access to the inside door, and are going to run things upon their own plan. They have assurances that they are to be the top rails in the Louisina Federal offices, and they are not at ail downhearted about it. ANOTHER STRAW. There is mother straw as to the stalwartism of Arthur’s administration. I believe every body will remember that Hayes was first a stalwart. It anybody can tell exactly what he was there is a chromo in the Washington office of the News which awaits only th claiming. Arthur is going just right back on all of Hayes’ methods, manners and customs. The men who were against Hayes while the Republican party are the ones who are to get the plums. It would seem that to have been anti Hayes is a talisman to Presiden tial favor under Arthur. The remembrance of Hayes and his crowd is burnt upon the memory of Arthur and his stalwart friends. It cannot be eradicated. It is there forever, and the smarting of the burn can only be re lieved by the punishment of the Hayas crowd who now remain under the government em ploy. A LITTLE BUNGLING. President Arthur started out with a little bungling when he got down to the actual busi ness of his office. He bungled on the first member of his Cabinet that he sent in. The man had not accepted the place, and after confirmation to the Treasury Department de clined. He, in this measure, tampered with the dignity of the Senate. The digßity of the Senate is an awful thing to tamper with. The Senate feels that it has been put in an awkward position by confirming a man for a Cabinet place w'ho bad never said he would take the place. The present Executive was a little off in sending Morgan’s name to the Senate. It is stated that he would never have sent the name in had not friends of Morgan said he would ac cept the Treasury portfolio. It was not a good start out for Ex ecu tive business, which beyond all others should be perfectly correct. It was undoubtedly awlivyayd. Potomac. ATTEMPTED ASSASSINATION. Guard ffli-Glll’a Son Shot In tlie Capi tol Grounds. Washington Post. A tragic affair occurred at the south east corner of the caffitol a few nights since, William fcL McGill, Jr., the son of the jail guard who had the fracas with Guiteau in his cell, being the victim. He had been to the National Theatre, and was returning to his home, 609 East Capitol street. Officers King and Marks were on guard at President Arthur’s resi dence, about two hundred yards distant, and heard a shot and pry oi “murder.” They hastened to the spot, and found McQill lying on the ground, shot in the side. His story was that he knew noth ing until he heard the shot and felt the wound. The officers removed him to bis home and Dr. W. E. C. Hnzen was called in. He found that the ball had struck the ninth rib on the left side, and, glancing, had lodged, about three inches away, in the muscles cf the back. He promptly probed and cut for the ball, which he succeeded in extracting. He pronounced the wound a very dangerous but not necessarily fatal one. McGill is about eighteen years of age. A Girl Fatally Shot.—Miss Melinda T. Jacobus, youngest daughter of Gar ret Jacobus, who dwells near Peru, N. J., on the Newark hyaneh of the Erie Rail va* shot in her father’s house on Sunday last and fatally wounded. While on a visit in Jersey City recently she became acquainted with John H. Wolfe, who is in the shoe business with his father in New York. On Sunday Wolfe called to see Miss Jacobus and spent the day with her. He iutended to take the half-past five o’clock train from Peru, and Miss Jacobus was about to ac company him. She had changed sh es, and while she was buttoning one of them Wolfe picked up a gun that stood in a corner of the room and, pointed it at her, saying, playfully, that he' was going tu shoot her. “Look out 1 the gun probably loaded.” she exclaimed. The next instant tbe gun went off find the girl fell to the floor, fatally shot. The New York Sun says that “Robert Hloskie, who has just died in Wabaffi, Ind, has for nine years lived chiefly on dog meat, which he declared to be whole some and palatable. His family .'relish the same food, and propose to continue its use.” Some people do faU in love with sausage l ESTABLISHED 1850. Arthur and the Star Routers. N. Y. Correspondents Philadelphia Ledger. It is an open secret with well informed people here that, when President Arthur was last in New York, he wa9 under an impression that none of the parties to the star route frauds could be con victed ; but, whether this impression was owing to a belief that the prosecution was unskilfully handled, or that there was not sufficient proof of the charges to convict, cannot be said, nor is it ma terial to the point, in connection with the persistency Mr. Arthur has shown in insisting that Attorney General Mac- Yeagh shall remain in the Cabinet at all hazards until that business is finished up. The fact is, in the event of the prosecu tion breaking down for lack of proof or any other cause (as your correspondent has heretofore written), the President is apprehensive that the enemies of his ad ministration would say that if General Garfield had lived this would have been a case in which “no guilty man” would have “escaped.” The President does not care to take any risk of that charac ter —the risk, that is, of shielding, even by implication, rogues in or out of office —and hence his now all but peremptory demand (in the imperative mood, it is said) that the Attorney General shall not retire until the prosecution which he helped to iDitate shall be finished. As there appears to be more or less mys tery to many people in this position of the President in thus declining to accept the resignation of the Attorney General, this explanation may serve to clear it up. Mr. Arthur’s memorable speech at the complimentary Delmonico dinner to Senator Dorsey had implied a pe culiar admiration for that person age on the part of the former, and this circumstance is an additional reason why he (Mr. Arthur) desires to have as little connection with the star route mat ter as possible. His determination, per haps, may best be expressed in what I am assured were his own words: “The people who commenced these prosecu tions must stay to see them out; it is not my intention to be made responsible for them in any way whatever.” Conklin? and the Treasury The President’s Confidence in Mr. James. Washington Cor. Philadelphia Ledger. Since General Arthur succeeded to the Presidency it has been whispered about Washington that Roscoe Conkling was to be called to the head of the Treasury about the first of January next, and that any appointment made during the present session of the Senate would be made with the understanding that it was to continue only until Mr. Conkling could prepare himself to assume the duties of the office. The talk was re vived to day, after the declination of Mr. Morgan became known. The President maintains his usual reticence about the matter, but it is plain to be seen that he is annoyed and disappointed with the failure that has thus far attended his ef forts to secure a Finance Minister. One thing, however, is certain, and that is, that the President will not make another nomination for a Cabinet place until he has received the assurance that the party nominated will certainly accept po sition for which the nomination is made. It is generally believed that another nomination for the Treasury will be sent to the Senate to-morrow or Tuesday. The President has intimated to Post master General James that he intendid to accept his resignation, and to again nominate him to be Postmaster General. The President does not accept the theory that the present commission of the Postmaster General expired one month after the death of President Gar field, and he informed Mr. James that in accepting his resignation and appointing him to be his own successor, “he,” the President, ‘ ‘intended to manifest his con fidence in the ability and integrity ex hibited by Mr. James in the administra tion of the Post Office Department. ” A Young Lady’s Fight with Burg lars —lt seems that this city is now the attractive point for burglars and sneak thieves, as robberies are of nightly oc currence. Last evening as Miss Nellie Rodgers, who resides on West Maryland street, was preparing supper, two men walked in the back door of the kitchen and demanded her money. She took her pocketbook out of her pocket, and taking a tight grasp on it, refused to sur render it, at the same time backing into an adjoining room. After getting into the sitting room she went to a dressing case, took a revolver therefrom, aDil ordered the men to leave the house. As quick as lightning, the burglars wrenched the revolver from her grasp, threw her upon ihe floor and took her pocketbook, containing sixteen dollars. As they turned to leave the house they fired three shots at her, all of which missed her, This is undoubtedly one of the most dar ing burglaries that has taken place in this city for a long Milwaukee Senti nel, October 14.
