the church had been called together to cod.
aider the expediency of settling a pastor. Dea
con James P. Smith then moved that a call be
extended to the Rev. Burdett Hart to beoome
the settled pastor of the churoh. After some
discussion by tho members Deacon S. B.
Butler desired to know the condition of the
call, especially as to the amount cf salary to
be paid, as he thought it important to settle
this question before extending a call. The
ohairman explained that the action of this
meeting was simply to express the views and
feelings of the church and was not binding on
the society. He added that the salary would
be fixed by the society and would be in ac
cordance with the views expressed at the an
nual meeting held last Monday evening. After
further discussion the resolution was adopted.
Before adjournment a vote was passed mak

The great favorites, Rice's Surprise Party,
appear at Coe's Opera House Thursday night,
giving "Revels," with fifty extravaganza ar
tists in the troupe. They come here from a
series of brilliant successes at the Globe Thea

new and costly. The sale of seats eommences
to-morrow morning. The Boston Journal
says :
The burlesque of Revels is packing this the
atre (Globe Theatre, Boston) to overflowing at
every performance, and a more pronounced
success has not been witnessed tnere tnis sea
son, which is saying much, for Manager Stet
son has been for the most part very fortunate
in the selection of attractions. Willie idouin,
Miss Athtrton, Miss Merville, Miss Elmore,
Mr. Howard, Mr. Dixey, Miss Wiley, Miss

company, play the piece in the liveliest and
most entertaining manner, and more gorgeous
costumes and scenery have never been seen on
the Boston stage.
The beautiful and accomplished actress Kate
Girard appears at Peck's Grand Opera House
this evening in the brilliant play "London
Assurance." Lady Gay Spanker is one of her
finest impersonations. She is spoken of by
exchanges as the rival of Mary Anderson in
personal appearance. In the Canada she
was received with immense enthusiasm. She
is supported by Miss Sadie Bigtlow and Miss
Grace Bennett, both of whom have enthusi
astio admirers wherever thsy appear, being
pronounced highly attractive. The remainder
of the cast speaks for itself to those familiar
with their superior merits, consisting of Harry
Eytinge, who supported Booth, F. De Vernon,
J. W. Summers, F. Savage, H. Aylinge, J.
Dsvoau, T. Rothwell, M. Strafford, J. W.
Archer and O. Wolffe. Of Miss Girard it is
said : "Her presence is very engaging and her
face is very sweet and winning. She is a true
actress." The company havo an engagement
of six weeks at the Standard Theatre, New
York, after their Connecticut engagements.
"the pibates."
Rarely does a New Haven audiencs become
aroused to such a state of enthusiasm as was
exhibited at the Grand Opera House last Sat
urday evening, when "The Pirates of Pen
zance " was given. Such a reception of the
op6ra is very littering to Messrs. Gilbert and
Sullivan, and shows how popular they have
beoome with the publio of this city. "The
Pirates of Penzance" is undoubtedly the most
clever and amusing work that its authors
have given to the publio. The mutie is of a
much higher charaoter than that of "Pina
fore," and at times some very beautiful effects
are produced. The gossiping of the maidens,
and the whispering of the breezes through
the trees at the time when the General is
aroused from his midnight slumbers are no
ticeably beautiful and clover orchestral pro
ductions, a fuller orohestra than the ene of
Saturday evening being needed, however, to
do them justice. The pretty airs, of which
there are many, are full of melody and
sweetness, but do not surpass some of the
well-worn and popular airs of "Pinafore."
The demand to have the song of the
policemen repeated was so great that an at
tempt to go on with the opera without giving
it resulted in a storm of enthusiasm which ut
terly drowned the orchestra and chorus and
lasted until the "equad" acquiesced in the de
mand. The principal parts were well sus
tained, Miss Fannie Lovering rendering the
part of Mabel, in the place of Miss
Rosevelt, fully as well, although she is not so
prepossessing in appearanoe. The airs
of this opera not being easily
remembered will not be whis
tled and hummed to death, and its repro
duction here will be pleasantly anticipated.
Good management at Loomis' musio stpre
prevented any confusion in regard to securing
seats, such as sometimes occurs when seats are
reserved under the gallery and such large au
diences are present. The young men who
gathered in the front rows te witness the
magnificent display of colored, hosiery made
by the Major General's numerous daughters
were much gratified.
babkum's wondebful show.
Barnum is coming and everybody is on the
tip-toe of excitement. His great show cannot
be beaten if we may believe the reports pub
lished of it in the newspapers wherever it has
been exhibited this year. We copy the fol
lowing from the New York Sun :
"The American Institute building has again
been taken possession of by Mr. Barnum.
The 'own and only greatest Bhow on earth'
began promptly at 2 o'clock yesterday after
noon to the delight of what may be called an
only greatest audience. It was, at all events,
as large an'andienee as the plaoe could hold.
Big as was the show, and big as was the audi
ence, Mr. Barnum, however, contrived to
make himself a part of both. He sat modest
ly on a reserved seat until, some one having
espied his genial countenance, he was loudly
called for, whereupon he sprang as lightly in
to the ring as any of his nimble-legged peo
ple, and made a neat little speech, which was
received with marked approval. The elephant
then went round and the band began to play,
and the thousandth (or so) season of Barnum
was opened.
The circus has this year come forth from
its winter retreat with a great deal that is
new. The oldest circus-goers fail to recog
nize as old friends many, indeed most, of the
items on the long bill. The trained stallions
are retained, and their majestio entrance acts
like a charm upon the audience. Mile. Leone
vu a - bareback horse is also, practi
cally familiar, though in point of fact yester
day was ner nrai appearance in .New xorK,
but a little later there cornea the pleasant
and original exhibition of eight clowns, si
multaneously humorous and enjoying. Eight
downs without a stale joko between them is
clearly a new and agreeable feature in any
circus. Their jokes, to say nothing of their
bodies, which in the course of their antios re
semble so many Easter eggs, fly about with
such rapidity that tbe wonder
is how Mr. Orrin Hollis, who rides a
naked horse meantime, can keep his seat
that is, his feet. All this, however, is as
nothing to the pleasant surprise for the old
circus-goers when two oxen come out of the
green room, and, having playfully jumped
over each other's back, balance one another
upon a sea-saw, sit down on a bench and even
do a waltz to "Little Buttercup." Another
surprise is in the introduction of a leaping
stag, and still another in some cleverly trained
doves, which amiably do almost anything a
'pleasant-looking young woman in pink tights
desires. Mmme. Dookrill has added to her
list of extraordinary feats the apparently
wearisome one of alighting and mounting
while tbe horse she rides and doesn't ride
is bounding over a series of hurdles. An
other and rather more emotional style of
horsewomanship is shown by Mme. Martha
and Miss Emma Lake, both of which young
women ride as if rivetted to their saddles,
while their singular horses pursue all manner
of known and unknown gaits. The perform
ance, which is long and includes almost
everything that can be imagined at a circus,
is brought to an end by the shooting of Miss
Zazel from a big cannon. The young lady
describes a liberal parabola high in air and
alights gracefully in a net provided for
the purpose. She also performs some
perilous feats upon a single wire, and then
climbs to the extreme height of the immense
building, and from that dizzy eminence leaps
headforemost into space, a distance of nearly
a hundred feet. This is the most daring and
sensational performance we ever saw."
The great show will be here on the after
noon and evening of May 4, and on that day a
ticket office will be open at Loomis' Temple of
Music, where those who desire to purchase
tickets and reserved seats can do so at the
usual small advance and thereby avoid the
crowds at the ticket wagons. -

Petty Smuggling.
Long Wharf has presented a busy scene
during the past week. For the three days,
ending on Saturday, there had arrived at this
port from the West Indies seven vessels laden
principally with sugar and molasses. The car
goes were consigned to L. W. & P. Armstrong"
J. J. Matthias and EV G. Phipps. This unex
pected arrival found the wharf taxed beyond
its capacity of storage, and when tho brig
Morning Light arrived on Saturday, it was
found necessary to send her to New York to
unload, there being no wharf room. Then
came the schooner F. E. Young, now lying in
tho stream, and there being no room for her
to lay at the dock, she will probably follow the
Morning Light to New York this morning
There has been talk for soma time pest of
increased wharf accommodations to accom
date the increasing foreign trade, but as yet
nothing has been done. It has been pro
posed to Increase the capacity of tho wharf
by building out on tbe west side and dredg
ing out tho channel so as to give ample
room to foreign vessels to reach tho wharf
end unload without delay. Should the Un
ion Wharf Company carry out the proposed
plan it would, no doubt, not only largely
increase tneir revenue, but also bo a great
benent to the snipping interests of tbe port.
Of the five vessels that arrived here during
the last three or four days and have been or
are discharging cargoes at the wharf, all of
them nave brought new crop molasses princi
pally, although some have a few packages of
sugar on their manifests. About eleven hun
dred packages of molasses, five hundred pack
ages of sugar and fifty packages of rum is the
quantity imported, and Its value and the reve
nue received by ths Government therefor is
no small sum.
mere nas been considerable petty smug
gling of late, wbisch is conhncd to chartered
vessels, thoso sailing direct from this port
using better judgment. Tne smuggling, no w-
ever, among the chartered craft is confined to
the crews of such vessels, and the officers are,
so far as known, in no way implicated. Dur
ing the past week the inspectors have seized
six demijohns of rum and one barrel of molas
ses on the brig Adah. On the brig D. W.
Hennessey several bags of sugar and several
packages of molasses were seized, one of the
packages of sugar being enclosed in a pillow
case with "ruffled" edge. All sorts of plans
are resorted to to get goods into port without
paying duty, but the watchfulness of the
Government officers mokes it risky business.
as goods not on the manifest are sure to be
confiscated. It often happens that the goods
sought to be smuggled are stolen either while
the vessel is lying at the port cf loading or
from the cargo while m transit.
That New Haven is destined to inorease in
importance as a port of entry is evident from
the constantly increasing arrival and departure
of vessels from and to foreign ports.

been seoured to erect the new one.
Death of George W. Rogers.
Gaorge Washington Rogers, a well known
citizen of Meriden, died early on Saturday

murder In the Second Degree State
Prison for Ufe Hamlin Xells His
Story of the Murder Petition for a
New Trial.
The trial of William Allen for the murder
of Keeper Shipman at the Wethersfield State
prison ended on Saturday in a conviction of
murder in the second degree. " When the
jurors through their foreman announoed their
verdict, Judge Pardee asked Allen if he had
anything to say before sentence was passed
upon him. Allen replied that he had not.
The j udge then imposed the sentence of the
oourt, which was that he be imprisoned in the
Connecticut State prison for the term of his
natural life. It was generally understood that
Allen professed to expect that the jury would
acquit him entirely, and that he would only
have to suffer for participation in an attempt
to break prison. Be that as it may, he took '
his sentence without apparent emotion. In
about ten minutes after Alien had received his
sentence Deputy Sheriff Packard stepped in t0
the prisoner's dock, placed a pair of handcuffs
upon his wrists, and he was immediately
thereafter removed from the oourt room and
taken in a carriage back to the jail.
Simultaneous with the announcement of
Allen's conviction is published the story of
Hamlin, who gives through the Hartford
Times his version of the attempt of himself
and Allen to escape from prison, which result
ed in the death of Keeper Shipman. He
makes a straightforward statement of the
whole affair, and aocording to his showing the
fatal shot which caused the death of Shipman
was fired by Allen and not by him (Hamlin).
The fact that Hamlin would not allow his
statement to be published until after Allen's
case had been given to the jury would
appear to indicate that he did not
expect to fasten the crime upon
Allen. The Hartford Times in a long edito
rial upon the subject among other things
says: " All through Hamlin's statement there
runs a thread, not only connecting Allen with
firing the fatal shot, but also showing him in
the light of trying to shirk the responsibility
of his crime. This is apparent in his deser
tion of Hamlin, in his claiming the seven
shooter, and in the prison attio when he per
sistently urged Hamlin to fly, so all the
blame might be thrown upon him."
Mr. Roger Wells, counsel for Hamlin, has
petitioned the court for a new trial for that
condemned man, and this petition is now
under consideration. Mr. Wells claims that
he has new evidence, and that in justice
Hamlin should have the benefit of it. Allen
was permitted to have a new trial after he
was found guilty of murder in the first degree
and sentenced to be hanged on the same day
on which Hamlin is sentenced to be executed.
Allen's new trial was allowed on a point not
connected with the evidence, but simply on
the omision of a word or two in the judge's
oharge, when he repeated the rule touchin g
the abandonment. We believe there is a
stronger reason for a new trial for Hamlin,
and we hope the court may grant it.

Wonderful Spiders.
From the Loadvillo Courier
A short distance from Buena Vista is a cave
inhabited by spiders which are different from
other spiders by their enormous size, and quite
useful to the needy people of that vicinity.
The cave was discovered last December by a
party of sight-seeers, and the spiders and
their work witnessed. On entering the cave
one is first struck by the funny looking webs
that meet the eyes. They are worked for all
the world like the webs of other spiders,
but every fibre is ten times as large as the
ones woven by ordinary spiders. On passing
on further into the cave the spiders are en
countered. They are about tbe size of small
birds and make a strange sound while weav
ing their webs. Their webs are so tough and
the fibers so large that it is almost impossible
to break down a web. Some four weeks ago,
while looking at the cave, a miner got to ex
amining the webs. Their strands were about
the size of a No. 12 thread. Having a needle
in his possession he broke off one of the
strands and found that it just fitted. Sewing on
a loose thread to test the efficacy he found it
as strong as-silk thread, and that it answered
his every purpose. Since then the people
have flocked in and carried away hosts of the
webs, but the spiders do not appear to object
in the least.
"My time is np," said the doctor to the pa
tient, whom he found using Dr. Bull's Cough
Syrup, and he was correct, for that cough was
soon a thing of the past. Price 25 cents.

One bottle of Dr. Grosvenor's Liver-Aid
will produce beneficial results in cases where
the remedies of the Pharmacopoeia and Nos
trums, dependent for a brief success upon
puffery alone, utterly fail. As its name im
plies, this medicine sets directly upon the
liver ; bat its action ia by no means confined
to that organ, ths digestive apparatus and the
bowels are put in good working trim, tne
manifold symptoms of dyspepsia vanish, the
blood is purified, and piles, which aro the in
variable result of costiveness, are wholly erad-
icated by this standard family medicine.
