A courier rode in from East Lyme to New London yesterday afternoon and brought the intelligence that Stnrtevant's woolen mill in Flanders was on fire and that there was little hope of saving it. The fire broke out about half-past 1 o'clock. The Studwell House in Greenwich was de stroyed by fire Thursday morning (19th) with its contents. Loss about $10,000. Insured for $6,000..

The following officers were eleoted for the ensuing year: Chief veteran, Thomas C. Hollis ; vice veteran, Robert R. Wood ; secre tary, F. Botsford ; treasurer, Louis Feldman. A sumptuous banquet was served in the banquet hall, and after supper interesting ad dresses were made by Veterans T. O. Hollis, Robert Sizer, H. F. Andrews and others. The occasion was one of the most enjoyable that has been held by the association. Gentlemen's Furnishing; Goods. Smith fc Stone, the favorite dealers in gents' furnishing goods, continue to justify the teem in which they are held by the public as enterprising and successful merohants who spare no pains to obtain the best selections in their especial line of trade. Their stock em braces a complete assortment of gentlemen's furnishing goods and will compare favorably with that of any other dealer in the State. At the present time may be found at their estab lishment, 352 Chapel street corner of Church, a fine assortment of goods just received suita ble for spring wear. Among a thousand and . one articles displayed at their store we were pleased to view "The Missing Link," which is certainly a wonder in its way. For particu lars as to its discovery, etc., as well as for the purpose of seeing it yourself, we advise you to pay them a visit, when they will be happy to enlighten you. See their advertisement on this page. Not a Burglar. On Sunday night about twelve o'olock, as Rev. Dr. R. A. Sawyer, who resides at 150 College street, was crossing the Green he was ohased by a man that he supposed intended to rob him. He notified the police, and last evening Special Constable Edward Gillon was arrested as the person who chased Dr. Saw yer. The charge against Gillon is breach of the peaoe and discharging firearms. It ap pears from Gillon's statement that he thought there was something suspicions about the ap pearanoe of Dr. Sawyer, and so he followed him. As the dootor started on a run he con cluded he must be a burglar, and so fired his pistol, he says, to attract the attention of the police. It is thought at the police offioe that Gillon is a little "out of his head," as he has talked good deal about burglars, and on one occasion went so far as to stop a hack and look inside to see If there were any burglars within. He also stopped one of William Hale's livery teams for a similar purpose re cently. It is not thought that he will be pun ished nnder the oiroumstanoes. Drr Qoeds Business, Ground is to be broken to-day or to-morrow for the erection of the new building back of the Oak Hall and F.4L. Lyons' stores in the Insurance building, the stores whioh are to be oooupied by the new dry goods oonoern. The new building will be two stories in height and run back all the way to Center street. The old Trinity church chapel is directly back of the stores. This and the coming tearing down of the Park House by Mr. Malley and his erection of a building running to Center street and connecting on that street with his present mammoth emporium, make quite notable improvements. Mr. Mailer's will be one story, but with high oeillng and a hand some front. The new dry goods oonoern has a lease of the ground they are to build on from Trinity church for ten years, with the privilege of renewal. A New York importer, speaking of New Haven's dry goods trade, says : New Haven buyers require a better variety of goods and use more extensively of a higher olass of goods than any other city of it size out of New York; that with the as sortment kept here there is no necessity for going away to buy goods, and that it Is a great benefit to the eity in securing almost wholly very valuable country trade. Paper onuErly Iearlalation of Connec ticut." A meeting of the New Haven County His torical Sooiety was held last evening at the Common Pleas Court room. Rev. Dr.Beards ley presided. There was a good attendance, including many leading citizens. A very in structive and interesting paper was read by H. Bronson, M. D., on the topic, "The Early Legislation of Connecticut." The lecturer glanoed at the laws of early times in New Ha ven colony regulating sooiety, among whioh was one to prevent yonng unmarried men from occupying a room alone, or apart from surveillance, another forbidding playing cards. He alluded to the light opinion entertained by the. colonists of free trade, and glanoed at the industrial features of the young colony. Strikes were unknown and are a modern in vention. The small wages paid laborers and the system of paying in produce to a consid erable extent were next mentioned. ' The highest salary received by any clergyman was 100 or $444, and this by the introduction of the Pine Tree shilling from Massachusetts was whittled down to $333 per .annum. ' The speaker gave attention to the currency sub ject of those times, and in closing reviewed the effect and character of the early laws and the more liberal and less annoying and ob noxious laws of a later colonial period. The address was listened to with evident interest and satisfaction, and the thanks of the society were tendered him. Political. . The Norwolk Democrat hears the name of General Dwight Morris prominently men tioned as the delegate-at-large to the Demo cratic National Convention from this State for the Fourth Congressional district and thinks no better selection could be made. Surprise Visit. Mr. C. B. Demarest, the carriage .manu facturer, who occupies the former Lawrence & Bradley shops on Chapel street, and his wife, were visited last evening by ' large party of friends at their residence on Woos ter street. Their ample parlors and sitting rooms hardly sufficed to contain all who em braced this pleasant social opportunity. The surprise was quite carefully planned, and the affair was one of the pleasantest social events in this part of the city this winter. With all the happy episodes, fine musio, dancing, pretty faces and toilets, and a lavish and very tempting spread and the mutual enjoyment of the affair by host and hostess and guests, there was nothing lacking. Temperance meeting; at .the North Church, There was a large audience at the North church last evening despite the asperity of the winds, the occasion being a leoture on tem perance by Mrs. Youmans, who spoke to so large a congregation at the First M. E. church Sunday evening. The lecture was preceded by singing by a band of young gentlemen and prayer. The speaker was introduced by Rev. Dr. Adams. She is a fluent, inoisive and forcible speaker, and like Moody and others urges that the tine ark of safety for a re formed inebriate is religion. She spoke at times with muoh eloquenoe and paid a tribute to Gongh as the best living apostle, of tem perance. He lectured in her town twenty- eight years ago and the potency of his speech still lived in her memory, particularly a frag ment where he spoke of two classes of intem perate men those who oonld abstain if they wished to, and those who would abstain but can't. She dwelt vigorously upon the pass. age, "Look not upon the wine," etc., as a Bible pledge and commandment whioh all should heed. Board oi Aldermen. Ireland. Death of Jason Bristol. Mr. Jason Bristol, who was seized with an attack of apoplexy while in this oity lost Thursday, died at his home in Milford on Saturday night. His sudden death created deep feelings of sympathy among his towns men. The singular method of his being brought home awakened suspicions of foul play, and the Milford authorities have been in the city inquiring into the case. He was 67 years of age and a very respectable gentle man, esteemed by the community, and leaves many friends, among them the substantial citizens of the town, to regret his death. The manner of his being conveyed home in an open carriage upon a raw, chilly day, while stricken with paralysis, has been muoh depre cated, and much regret was felt that he had not been taken to the hospital or to a hotel, but the parties who attended to him are deemed, upon inquiry into the oase by vari ous parties, to have token the best care of him that seemed practical under the oiroum stanoes. The deceased had been to the city to make a customary visit and attend to so: business matters, and called npon some of our merchants, who are among his old friends and acquaintances here. While going through Fair street he was suddenly taken ill and went to the nearest house, which proved to be one kept by Margaret Johnson, where he asked to be allowed to lie down, as he felt very badly, He hod laid down but a few moments when he was seized with a paralytio stroke. Dr. E. L. Bissell was called and advised his removal to his home in Milford, after allowing him time to rest; Mrs. Johnson sent to Crnttenden's liv ery stable on Union street and procured a phaeton, in which Mr. Bristol was taken home, he being at the time nnable to speak. He lingered in an almost insensible condition until his death. He was a member of the Rev. Mr. Griffing's churoh in Milford, and leaves a widow and an invalid daughter to mourn his loss. He was a kind husband and devotedly attached to his invalid daughter, and on one of his last visits to this city expressed to friends with much pleasure that favorable indications hod appeared in her oase, encour aging his fond hopes of her return to health. The funeral takes place from his late residence on Broad street, Milford, this afternoon. entertainments. haveblt's. Haverly's mastodon minstrel troupe appear at Peck's Grand Opera House to-night. There was a lively sale of reserved seats yesterday at Loomis'. The troupe is a first class organi zation. "The Buffalo Express says: "The Academy was fairly paoked In every part, and seldom have we seen an audience seem to so thoroughly enjoy a burnt-cork entertainment. Of the first part we may unhesitatingly say that a better has never been known here. The performers, numbering abont fifty, and in olnding soloists, chorus, end men, orchestra and brass band, were placed so as to present an imposing front when the series of curtains, managed in transformation-soars style, had risen. It was altogether fresh and funny, while the solo singing was unusually fine and the chorus superb. THE GBEAT HEEMANN THURSDAY, FBXDAY AMD SATURDAY, FEB. 26, 27 AND 28. That adroit wizard in what our grandfathers" days would have been termed "the black art, Hermann, commences a three night's and matinee engagement at Coe's Opera Honae Thursday. Hermann is now recognized as the first representative in the art of legerde main, and he gives an entertainment that is certainly a remarkable exhibition of skill in this direction. Conspicuous among the novel attractions announced as a part of this enter tainment may be enumerated Mile. Addie, in her "Sleep in Mid-Air" scene, the Lorellas, entitled "Elfin Spirits," in an aot called "Gam bols in Impland." The entertainment is di vided into three acts, and requires a full or chestra and a fall set of stage hands, and dif fers from others in that it is not a gift show. Mr. Hermann depends on his ability to enter tain by his skill rather than in a chance of gain in trifling presents for an audience. MS. SPAXTLDINO'S UtCTUBXa. Those who have attended any of Mr. Spaulding's lectures do not need to be re minded of the one to-morrow night on "Cat acombs and Churches." Bnt those who have been so unfortunate as to miss the preceding ones should remember that this is the next to the last of the series and act accordingly. The leoture to-morrow evening will be espe cially attractive, because it will describe the early yean of Christianity in Borne, showing the places where the primitive Christians met in times of bitter persecution, and illustrating early Christian art. It should be borne in mind that there is nothing of a controversial character in the lecture. The lecturer simply describes the scenes and incidents in the early growth of the Christian churoh, and presents the latest results of competent i Christian soholarahip. - . - - Bewlalnsr the city Charter The Sala- rles of City Officials Reduced The Revision Aoont Half Completed. . : A special meeting of the Board of Aldermen was held last evening. His Honor Mayor Bice- low presiding. A resolution appointing the Mayor, one Al derman and one Oonnoilman to consider the division of rooms in the City Hall was read and passed. Alderman Harmon was appoint ed on the committee. Alderman Farnatn proposed a consideration of the revision of the city charter.- His mo tion prevailed, and Alderman Sheldon was ap pointed chairman of the committee and took the chair. Mr. Asher, clerk of the Committee on Charter Revision, was appointed clerk of the committee of the whole. The amendments to the charter were then taken np. Mr. Farnam explained the altera tion in the first section, which related to the boundaries of the city, and explained the al teration, which was the line taking in 600 feet westerly of the center of Dixweil avenue. This amendment was adopted without debate. Section 2, relating to wards, was changed on motion of Alderman Peck so as to bring a portion of the Ninth ward, as proposed, into the Tenth ward, and, as amended, passed. Section 4 was next considered, whioh pro vides for the election of Mayor, Clerk and other officers. The only material change made was to add that the City Sheriff shall be eleoted for two years, the same as other oity officers. Alderman Driscoll moved that the first Tuesday of December in this section, whioh relates to the time of holding oity elections, be changed to the first Tuesday in November, so that there would not be so many elections in the fall. He said such a change would save unnecessary expense. Alderman Baldwin opposed the change. He thought the oity election should be held separately and distinctly from the other elec tions. The advantage to be gained overbalance the little cost of holding it at another time than that of other elections. Alderman Robertson favored the change. He said there was nothing partisan in it, and he thought both parties would favor the alter ation. " The amendment was adopted, and the city election will be hereafter held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November. The 8th section was next considered. This seotion had been so changed as to make the City Clerk only clerk of the Police Commis sioners. lB.e is now clerk of all the commis sions. This seotion had also been changed so as to cause the clerk to keep his offioe open such hours as the Court of Common Council shall direct The amendments were adopted. Section 11 had been changed so as to moke the Auditor audit the accounts of the Tax Collector without extra compensation. - Seotion 12 was amended by inserting after the words Corporation Counsel, "whose duty it Bhall be." This simply made the duties designated compulsory. Seotion 15 was changed so as to make the bonds heretofore given by the city officers to the Mayor, to hereafter be given" to the city. Section 18, relating to salaries, was next taken up. This hod been changed by a re duction in salaries of all the oity officers, as heretofore published. Alderman States moved that all the salaries remain as heretofore except that of the Aud itor, ana tnat bis be the same without "ex tras." Alderman Harmon said he hoped the amendment of the Alderman from the Fourth (States) would not prevail. He thought the salaries oonld be safely reduced as the committee had reported in section 18. and he should vote for the reduction as there proposed. Alderman Baldwin said while it might be true mat some oi tne salaries should be re duced, it was a matter of notoriety that some of them were entirely too high. He thought the salary of the Mayor, for instance, could be sorely reauoea to sz.uoo, yet he would not stand for $500 more than this. He thought the seotion, if adopted at all,shouId be adopted as a whole. Alderman Driscoll sold that under the new charter the Mayor would be ex officio chairman of the different commissions, and his duties wouia tnererore be necessarily increased. Alderman Baldwin moved that the question be divided and that a vote be taken on the salary of the Mayor first. Alderman Driscoll objeoted. He thought ii any reauotion was made it should be gen eral, as proposed by the committee. Alderman Bartlett said as he understood the matter, the reduction in salaries would not affect present officials but only their successors. The motion to divide the question was then taKen by yeas and nays and was carried by a vote of 12 to 10. The nay votes were all Democrats. - The committee then voted on Alderman States' motion that the salary of the Mayor should remain at $3,000 by a yea and nay vote and it was lost, the vote being 10 in favor and 12 against. The Democrats voted in favor and the Re publicans against. Alderman Woodhouse was the only Democrat who voted with the Repub licans. . The salary of the Mayor was then fixed at $z,6UU, tne complexion of the vote being the same as on the previous ballot, only reversed. A motion to vote on all the remaining sala ries ana adopting mem as reported by the committee was passed by an almost unani mous vote. The only Aldermen voting in the negative were Robertson and Ohase. Seotion 20, giving the Mayor or presiding officer of the municipal boards power to com pel the attendance of such members of the boards as snail be needed to constitute a quo rum, was adopted. Seotion 26, which gives the polios power to prevent persons irom loitering on the streets ana in nauways ana alleys was passed. Section 32 changes the names of some of me jsoaras. or instance, Board of Road commissioners to ' '.Board of Public Works. It was passed. Section 33, providing for the appointment of members of the polioe force from the su pernumerary force and making one year on inai necessary Deiore appointment as rega lor," was read. Alderman Harmon offered an amendment giving the Police Commissioners power to re move patrolmen when they are physically dis- aoiea or otnerwise aisqusunea without a pub lic trial or hearing. In offering the amend ment Alderman Harmon said teat having been on the Board of Polioe Commissioners he knew the difficulty in getting rid of inefficient patrolmen. He said there were men on the force who were absolutely good for nothine : yet it was impossible to eet rid of them be cause they did nothing whereby charges could be preferred against them. Alderman Driscoll thought the amendment snould be extended to affect officers as well as patrolmen. Alderman Harmon said he did not object to hucu an aaamon to nis amendment and he accepted the suggestion of Alderman Driscoll. i ne amendment was then adopted. The seotion was further amended bv strik. ing out that portion of it giving the Police Commissioners power to discharge all persons arrested without process, and the section as amended was adopted. At this point, being about half through the amendments, the committee rose and the Mayor took the ohair. The chairman of the committee of the whole reported to the Board. The application of George H. Dayton to erect a wood addition was read and referred. Applications of Joseph Scovilleand Charles i. isen to be appointed special constables were referred. On motion the Board adjourned until next neanesaay evening at 7:30 o clock, when the revision, win oe xurmer oonsiaerea. Police Notes. Patrolman William O'Keefe is at present nnder severe family affiiotion. Last Wednes day a bright little girl fou years of age died from whooping cough and measles. On Sat urday night a little boy, one of a pair of twins, died, and the other twin, a girl, is not expected to live. Added to this he has a boy six years of age very ill with inflammation of the brain, and there is no hope of his recov ery. Pleasant Place Occasion Wooster - Baptist Church. The First Baptist ohurch lecture room was crowded to overflowing last evening and a very nappy occasion transpired. When everything was ready Dr. Walker, long the precentor at the churoh and for some time superintendent of the Sunday school recently having re signed the latter offioe was presented with an elegant large book case as a testimonial of es teem and appreciation, and his wife was also presented with a very fine floral tribute, also with two choice and elaborately frosted cakes, the pastor of the church, Rev. Dr. Stifler, making the speeches in behalf of the assem bly, and in his accustomed happy manner. Yesterday being the tenth anniversary of the wedding of Dr. and Mrs. Walker, was selected as the day for bestowing these gifts. Also Mrs. General 8. R. Smith was the recipient of a lovely toilet set in worsted and blue aflk, the handiwork of the ladies of the sewing so ciety, whioh this lady has served continuously for twenty years as secretary and treasurer, recently having resigned. The pastor made very fitting remarks expressive of the feelings of appreciation entertained by the sooiety and all present for the valuable service rendered. Music and song contributed to the occasion in a solo by Miss Carr, Mr. F. A. Fowler, the musical director, accompanying. Following, very line sapper was partaken of in.the ladies' parlor overhead, some 200 or 800 ladies and gentlemen participating. Prof. Wheeler's Lecture Before 1.1 noitta A large and attentive andienoe greeted Prof. Wheeler atLinonia Hall last evening. In opening his address the professor protested against a lecture on Ireland. He oould not in so short a time solve the difficulties whioh for more than seven hundred years had foiled the 'attempts of England's greatest statesmen. England during this length of time had failed to incorporate herself with Ireland or to sub jugate the island; neither had Ireland during these seven centuries been able to free herself and secure her liberty. Ireland is a land famed for its beauty, but the beauty is that of a lovely frame enclosing a wretched picture- The coasts of Ireland are its most beautiful spots. The interior is one of desolate bogs and illy-cultivated fields. It is singularly free from fine harbors, with a few exceptions, and with the exception of the Shannon it is destitute of noble rivers. It is a country eminently adapted to agriculture, and its manufacturing interests are very limit ed. It has no mineral deposits of conse quence. The Irish in themselves most be an agricultural people. The earliest known his tory of the Celts was graphically referred to, and the national traits of the Celts and Ten tons compared. Irish hospitality was prover bial, and asceticism in religion, love of gayety, idleness and beggary were referred to, and the bravery of the Celt in battle, while the speaker tarnea to arop a nower to tne beauty or Moore's lyre. He referred to Ireland's clans and to the peculiarity of the system of land tenure. Starting now with the conquest of Henry IV. the lecturer reviewed Irish history as affected by its government and its rules and its ecclesiastical element. The speaker referred next to the influenoe of O'Connell, and proceeding explained Parnell's scheme of reform, whioh he deemed no real solution of the existing difficulties. The lecture was one of extreme interest. . 3$tM " lottos. Helig-iens. The gospel workers of the T. M. C. A. are how holding their 156th series of meetings at Central Village. The meetings began at Moosup February 10 have been attended with increasing interest. It has been a long time since there has been such a deep, widespread revival interest as Is now seen.

Redfield is not going to move, as represented, but will still continue at his old stand, No. 108 Church street, and will be happy to see his old friends and as many new ones as wish to call. Mr. O. A. Dorman is selling a very fine quality of stationery very low at his new store, 196 Chapel street.
