LOCAL SEWS Brief Mention. Mr. G. II. Baldwin has in view the erection of a rink, 1G8 feet long by 68 wide, on Dwight street, near Whalloy avenue. Engineer Frank Stillman, who was danger ously injured in the accident on the Valley road at Colt's dyke, Hartford, Tuesday, is in a critical condition at his home in Saybrook. A candy maker in the employ of F. E. Pat terson A Co., of Bridgeport, was nearly suf focated the other night while asleep near a pot of burning candy. He would have been killed by the smoke had not a policeman . awakened him. A Bridgeport gentleman recently had sit ting at his table three generations and all of them toothless. They were his mother-in-law, toothless from old age, his infant, tooth less from non-age, and his wife, toothless from the dentist. Quite an excitement was created at Mat ley's Saturday, some 2,000 yards of prints, the usual selling price being 7 cents per yard, being given away, in quantities ranging from three to ten yards. Mr. Gamble, the superin tendent, was surrounded by multitudes wreathed in smiles. The distribution was an entirely unheralded affair. The Connecticut Amateur PreBS Associa tion will have their seventh regular conven tion at Loomis' Temple, New Haven, July 28. The president is A. N. Daniels, Hartford ; first vice president, C. W. Bobbins, West Hartford ; second vice president, W. E. Nich ols, East Haddam ; secretary, T. E. Case, Hartford ; treasurer, W. G. Snow, West Meriden. "Citizen" complains of the man who goes along on Chapel street with a gun on his shoulder recklessly carried. The man par ticularly complained of is he who carries the gun in such a way that the muzzle warns in the face of the man just behind him. If a horse car laden with excursionists is passing, the man turns a corner just in time to sweep the whole car load with the muzzle. The worst of it is that the man with the gun car ried thus recklessly seems to enjoy himself no matter how many people are rendered un comfortable by his carelessness. Rent KstJite Transfers. Becent transfers of real estate, recorded in the Town Clerk's office, are : Mary Ann Foster ot als. to nenry Bronson, two hundred and eighty-three feet of land on Frospecl street and two hundred and eighty-seven feet on Mansfield street.

Father Skelly is transferred to East Bridgeport. Bev. Father Dougherty, assistant at Windsor Locks, and formerly at St. Francis church in this city, has been appointod pastor at West chester. The Norwich Races. At the last day of the Norwich trotting park, the unfinished 2:35 race was won by Freeman in two straight heats in 2:301, 2:31. The 2:45 class was won Ty Tom Barton, jr. Heresy second, Baby Girl third; best time 2:39. The 2:25 class was won by George H., Golden Girl second, Valley Chief third; time 2:2!i, '30, '30J, '2!i, '33i; Valley Chief won the first heat and Golden Girl second. Hr an ford Point. Among the many shore resorts which are patronized so largely this season, the hotel at Branf ord Point is receiving a large share. On Saturday the place was alive with guesta every room in the house being occupied There are always a number of visitors from abroad, and the many gay seasons that this once famous house has seen are evidently about to be renewed and the place again be come a popular seaside resort. A marked fea ture of the place is the Saturday night hops which are in every way a success, Thomas orchestra furnishing the music. H II icicle in Ansonia. On Saturday morning word was sent to Selectman Webster of Ansonia that an un known woman had been found drowned in Holbrook Pond. A coroner's jury was sum moned and the inquest developed the fact that the woman was Harriett Nelson of Southbury. She had been residing at the house of Clark B. Downs, and being in ill health it is presumed that she committed sui cide. She had been suffering for years with an ovarian tumor, and it is thought that she left the house sometime during the night un der a temporary aberration of mind and found her way to the pond, where she put an end to her existence. West Hawen Notes. The Twitchell family reunion was held on the West Haven shore last Friday. The gath ering numbered about fifty. There would have been more but the morning was cloudy with indications of rain. As it was those that came down were well repaid for their trouble. There were Twitchells from this city, from Naugatuck and other places. They spent the day in social enjoyment. Captain Charles Smith took out a large party of them on his sharpie Mary. A little after the sun had passed the meridian dinner call was sounded from the restaurant of Payne k Warriss on Grove street, who had been en gaged to cater for them, and the visitors say they did their part nobly. Everything was highly satisfactory. Many prominent per sons were there, and a few after-dinner speeches were made. The assemblage de parted for, their homes well pleased with their day's pleasure, and voted it a success. Remarkable Escape Prom Death. On Saturday afternoon William Belden, who lives at 144 Franklin street, and is em ployed at the Clock shop, had a narrow es cape from a terrible death. He was engaged in lacing a belt on the second floor of the Clock Company's works, and while so doing coupling caught in bis over-jacket, and he was instantly whirled around the shaft, which was revolving at a tremendously rapid rate. With great presence of mind Mr. Belden clung close to the shaft and called for a boy who was at' work near to have the engine stopped. The boy tried to pull the belt off and after a time succeeded. When Mr. Belden was taken down he had no clothing left but his boots, everything else being torn into fragments. He was taken home as soon as possible and Dr. Frank Whittemore was summoned. Beside several cuts and bruises it was found that two ribs were broken. It was certainly a most remarkable escape. j Sunday Temperance Meetings. At Belle Dock, Hamilton Street and Pair Hares. The People's Good Samaritans held thjir usual Sunday temperance meetings yesterday in the afternoon at Belle Dock and in the evening at the carriage shop No. 70 Hamilton street. There wag a good attendance at the Belle Dock meeting, which was addressed by President D. C. Albee, Frank Hale of Hart ford, and Mr. McNamara and Charles White of this city. At the Hamilton street meeting there was a large attendance and addresses were made by Joseph Sheldon, Esq., Charles M. Pendleton and Joseph Derby. On the conclusion of the addresses an invitation was given to any who so desired to sign the pledge and ten persors availed themselves ot the opportunity. If the friends of the socie ty would donate a few more chairs for use at the Hamilton street room they would be greatly appreciated. The temperance prayer meeting held in Central Hall, Fair Haven, last evening, under the auspices of Anchor Temple of Honor, was quite largely attended. Captain Charles Seeley presided and made a short address, in which he complimented Captain Wales French as one of the tried and true defenders of the temperance cause. In closing he introduced Captain French as the speaker of the evening. Captain French then addressed the meeting at considerable length, dwelling upon the evils of intemperance. He urged total ab stinence from all intoxicating drinks as the only safe rule, and urged his hearers to adopt these principles. The address was listened to with deep interest by those present. " Home Again. At St. Patrick's Chnrch Hot, Mr. Slo cuiu'a Visit Abroad The Pamine Dis tricts and Emigration Emigrants Happy at the Prospects In America The Stars and Stripes at Qneenstovrn. Yesterday morning at the seven o'clock mass service at St. Patrick's church, Kev. Mr. Slooum, assistant pastor, made some reference to his trip to Europe, from which he returned last week. There was a large and expectant audience. All were glad to see his face again, to find him looking so well and vigorous, and to hear his voice. This was the young priest's first view of the old world, he being a native of this country, born in Winsted, Conn. He remarked that he had visited Ireland and spent some time there. He had been in the districts where gaunt famine had stalked abroad, and in the more prosperous parts of the beautiful isl and. He spoke of the tide of emigration which is pouring to this country from that land, and, commenting, said that a noticeable thing now was a feeling of gladness, almost of joy, with which the emigrants left for the new world." Formerly the emigrant left with doubt and almost fear at his venture. Now the voyager sails away happy at the thought of the United States and eager to begin the life struggle anew, and the sorrow ing is felt by their kinsmen who are obliged to stay in the old country and cannot go also. On the steamer on which Mr. Slocum re turned was a large party of emigrants joyous and happy at the thought of America. The speaker paid a fine tribute to the stars and stripes. In visiting France, Prussia, Austria and Italy the maneuvering of soldiers and constant signs of a strong military power met his eyes, and when having completed his journoy and arrived at Queenstown to take the steamer for home and his eyes fell again upon the stars and stripes Host ing at masthead, his heart bounded with in him that he was returning to a free country with freedom in the very air. Personal. Mr. William O'Connell and his sister Maria, who have been sojourning in Ireland for the past year, reached New York last evening on the steamship Arizona. They have a host of friends in this city who will welcome their return. The Catholic Retreat. The retreat for the assistant Catholic clergy of this diocese closed at St. Francis Orphan Asylum on Saturday morning, having been in session since Monday evening. Father Gleason, of New York city, conducted the retreat, and during the week Vicar Genera Walsh was present. Fasting and religious exercises are included in these yearly gather ings. The retreat of the pastors was held the preceding week. Puneral of Policeman Tobln. The funeral of the late Policeman William H. Tobin was attended from St. Patrick' church yesterday afternoon. The police force, under command of Sergeant Selleek, attended in a body and were escorted by the American band. Funeral services were celebrated at the church, Bev. Father Fitz patrick acting as celebrant. The remains were followed to their last resting place in St. Bernard's cemetery by the police force and a lnrge number of mourning relatives and friends. The Carnival To-night. There will be much interest to hear the Howe band of Bridgeport and the American band of this city play in grand concert at the carnival to-night. The friends of each are sanguine of the defeat of the other band All the games will be given, while the illumi nation will be under the management of the New York Calcium Light Company. A large crowd witnessed the carnival advertising by the stereopticon on Chapel street Saturday evening. Should any postponement be again needed it will be announced in the evening papers. With so many postponements, all will hope for a fair night and success. Summer Jottings. James Gallagher, jr., the tobacconist, and Mr. Charles M. Merwin, of E. G. Stoddard Co., were last week at the Catskills, whence. after having had a very pleasant sojourn, they proceeded to Saratoga. They return in few days. Prof. Niemeyer, of the Yale Art School, and Mr. Robert K. Wiseman, the artist, are spending a part of the summer in Wood- bridge, a radiating point for visits to the wild and beautiful scenery of that section. Mr. Brown, of Brown, Bolton & Co. , turns from his vacation spent at Barnes' Pot Island. D. S. Thompson, secretary of the New Haven Buckle Co., and wife start to-day for the White Mountains. Politics. A Hancock and English club was formed in the Second ward recently, with T. J. Fox president; vice presidents, J. D. Plunkett, Joseph Goebel; secretary, T. J. Crowley; treasurer, J. J. Brennan. A company for parading was formed with P. F. Byrne, cap tain; T. F. Stanford, 1st lieutenant; P. Quinn, 2d lieutenant. The Democratic town committee meet this evening, when the agitation will be whether to have two sets of primaries or one. The Democratic organs call in high-pressure terms for one set. Republicans of the respective wards should heed the calls for primaries and take an hour to attend. East Haven Republicans elect delegates Wednesday evening. North Branford do so Monday evening next. Chnrch Notes. A A Al S- . , - i me denier cnurcn yesterday morning Bev. Mr. Ide, of Lawrence, Mass., gave very able exposition of the proposition "What is it to Sin ?" The North church con gregation united in the service. Bev. Dr. Harwood, of Trinity, sailed for Europe Saturday on one of the German steamers, to be absent until probably the sec ond Sunday in September. Bev. Mr. Thome, assistant pastor of Trinity, preached y ester- day, next Sunday the Bev. Toliver F. Cas- key, a graduate of Yale some years ago. The remainder of the Sundays in August the Bev. Francis Lobdell, of New York, late of St. Paul's, officiates. The choir of Trinity are excused from duty on the second, third and fourth Sundays in August. In the interim the music will be given by either a volunteer choir or by congregational singing. ' At the Dwight Place church yesterday af ternoon Bev. Mr. Northrop preached a fine discourse on sacred music. This was the last service at the church for a season, servi ces being suspended during the month of rust. The music yesterday afternoon was specially good. Miss Gaffney was in fine voice and Miss Roberts of Davenport church was present and assisted. - .' I The Martha's Vineyard Excursion. A Very Enjoyable Time Visits to Rocky Point, Kantncket. Newport and Other Places of Interest Jottings by the Way. Special correspondence of the Jottrnal and dbuRrxn Oak Bluffs, Mabtha's Vineyard, ) July 22. f ' The good steamer Elm City is at present at her dock in front of the Sea View House, H. M.Brownell proprietor. Theweather has been unfavorable and to-night it is raining hard, but the company are having a jolly time. They have been riding about, looking at the different beautiful cottages and enjoying the fine drives, as the roads are all concreted. In strolling about we noticed the Island House, kept by Mr. Hayden, who is the father of Bev. H. H. Hayden, of Kockland fame, and were informed that one of the jurors in the famous case is stopping at the hotel. The air is very bracing and invigorating here, and every one seems to enjoy it. All eat well and are not troubled with mosquitoes. Many of our New Haven people are stopping on shore, while others sleep on the boat and get their meals there, and are well looked out for by Steward Hinman. Martha's Vineyard is a favorite stopping place for many beautiful yachts, and as the fleet of the New York Yacht Club and others make their an nual cruise to the eastward one after another of the swift coursers of the sea drop anchor in this beautiful haven, and those on board enjoy the hospitality of the residents on the shore, and in return they harjpily re ceive and entertain many guests. A large number of New Haven people were thus en tertained to-day on the fine yacht Estelle, commanded by Mr. Smith, of the New York Yacht Club. Some of our number, too, had a pleasant visit to the quaint old town of Nan tucket, twenty-eight miles distant, on the good old sea boat Island Home, Capt. V. H. Manter, Jared Norton clerk. Through the sea-green water and over the old ocean swell in good weather it is a delightful excursion to Nantucket, the old town that shows so many relics of departed glory, where so many houses still have the substantial balcony built around the large old chimney, where the wives and daughters of the captains of the whalers used to watch for the vessels as they were due from sea. But kerosene has saved the life of many a whale, and also much interfered with the business enterprise of old Nantucket. Nan tucket is also the place for pies, (good ones), old fashioned apple pies with plenty of cin namon, and for pickles. One of the favorites are pickled limes ; if you want to be sick eat three or four. Some of the streets have cu rious names and signs, such as Quince street, Plum Lane, etc. In riding about we no ticed many quaint old houses, some with a weather vane in the shape of a wnale and shingles on the top and sides. The oldest house we saw was dated 168(5. We also took a look at the old mill with its wind sails, built in 1746; also at the soldiers' monument erected m memory of about 7; of Nantucket brave men. Also visiting Nantucket and highly entertained were purser Miles L. Peck, Mr. James It. Ruickoldt, agent of the excursion, of New Haven, and Mr. Tracy Warren and Mr. E. Dunham of Bridgeport, F. Quintard, New Haven ; also Mr. George Beach of New Haven, who re marked "there is nothing like the high seas, on the strength of which he took a cup of coffee. Mr. Beach says he was one of those who had the pleasure of being on the trial trip of the favorite boat Jblm City, about 2. years ago, and gives pleasant recollections of that event. Though he and Mr. J. JJ, Bradley are good sailors, they left the boat at Newport not venturing to go around Point Judith- aeain, and came home by rail from Providence. We meant to have mentioned above the cottage at Martha's Vineyard of Mr. Horace U. Wilcox, of the Meriden .Britan nia Co., one of the finest on the island. This evening a hop was given at the Sea View House, which was enioyed by the excursion ists and guests of the house. Thomas' orches tra furnished the music. New Milf ord was well represented on the excursion by Dr. Bacon and wife, C. B. Botsford and wife, T. T. Marsh and wife and Mrs. Julia H. Board man, who take home, with all the rest of the party, most pleasant recollections. Members of the excursion party cannot speak too high lv of the hospitality and courtesy of Gov. Cary of the Island, and Mr. Sturges M. More house, a lawyer of New 1 ork city, who was guest at the Sea View House. Oak Bujtts, Mabtha's Vineyard. ) July 23. f At daylight Friday morning the Elm City left her dock at the Vineyard for Newport and again the staunch boat showed her good sea-going qualities, as there was consider able sea on account of an easterly wind, Barks, brigs, schooners and fishing vessels passed rolling very heavily, but the Elm made good work of it and not many passen gers were sick. It was a delightful early morning sail on the ocean. Many objects of interest were passed, yachts and lightships, and also the whistling can buoy at the Hen and Chickens, off Buzzard's Bay. Its whis tles with every heavy sea could be distinctly heard by those on the steamer. The IT. training ship Minnesota and the French frigat Magicienne were passed, also Fort Adam and the torpedo station (where a New Haven boy, Mr. F. Goodrich, is stationed), and the old Revolutionary fortification, the lighthouse and the home of Ida Lewis. About 9 o'clock the boat arrived at her dock at Newport. The weather was still showery, but after breakfast many of the passengers took a stroll about the city. Others went up to the fash ionable and elegant hotel of Newport, the Ocean House, and made the acquaintance of the genial manager, M. W. M. Bates. By the kindness of Air. Crocker, tne superintendent. the Casino, or gentlemen's club house and pleasure grounds, was visited by a few. The Casino, we believe, is to be opened next week. It consists of several elegant build ings in the English style, with connect ing balconies in the rear inclosing a beautiful park with walks, flowers ana fountains. is owned, we are informed, by fourteen wealthy gentlemen, and an immense amount of money has been spent on it. A number of the excursionists had a good time at Rocky Point, which they visited. They report clam bake was enjoyed by about two hundred persons, and they were interested with the swimming feats of Paul Boynton, who was exhibiting at that place. He discharged a torpedo which blew up a miniature ship, and performed many wonderful feats in the water with his swimming outfit. One of the most pleasant events in the excursion was a visit by a party of ladies and gentlemen to the French man-of-war Magicienne and to the IT. S. Frigate Minnesota, consisting of Capt. F. J. Peck, Ex-Mayor Lewis, Mr. Miles L. Peck. Mr. H. Kellogg, Mrs. L. Dudley, Hon. Wm. J. Mills. Col. C. F. Luther and lady of North Adams, Mass., (the Col. is on Gov. Bice's staff), your correspondent and wife, Mr. Ruickoldt, agent for the excursion, and a few others. The company were very agreeably entertained by the polite French commander Capt. Jourdan. The frigate has 450 men and officers and is a fine ship, with 20 rifled guns. Ex-Mayor Lewis made one of his happiest little speeches in the ele gant cabin of the officers, which was, we sup pose, much appreciated by them, that is, if they could understand our English dialect, but the Frenchman could have hardly appreciated the trio of beautiful rosebuds presented to him by tne worthy ex- Mayor, or "Prefect," as ne said "yellow was a vary bad colour. He might have had refer ence to the German. After a half hour of much interest in being shown over the ship, the company made a visit to the United States training snip Minnesota, tne largest frigate, we believe, in the United States navy forty guns. Colonel White and the Doctor, who are friends of Captain Peck, with much courtesy showed us over the splendid vessel, neat and orderly in every particular. the ship's band in the meantime giving some good music, in which the favorite 2nd Regiment march was finely rendered. After another very pleasant half hour the company returned to Newport. The visit to Newport closed with a delightful drive around the city, the party viewing with much pleas ure the elegant residences and grounds and enjoying the beautiful sunset, rainbow, and surf on the beach. A fine supper was en. joyed at the Ocean House, when all returned to the Elm City, which left Newport for New Haven at about lO p. m. with music, etc. and enjoying the refreshing cool air the time was whiled away until the good boat reached her dock in this city early Saturday morning. As to the excursion we believe every one had an enjoyable time. The officers of the boat and their friends on shore vied with each other in showing attention to the excursion ists, and to many the three days trip of the f.lm (Jity to Martha s vineyard, July 21, 'SO, seemed much too short, so pleasantly did the time pass away. Yours, E. T. C. A Free Trip. The Hartford and New Haven Steamboat Company proposes to do something for the poor women and children of Hartford, Mid- dletown and river landings generally, in the way of a cheap excursion on the river and out on the Sound. The cost of such an -ex cursion will be about $400 for one thousand women' and children. The steamboat compa ny and its officers offer to pay quarter of th expense, ifoo, ana ail over $ uu to oe given to some charitable organization for the bene fit of the poor. Over $8,000 was raised in this way in New York recently for the poor. The Excursion Season. Enjoyment at the Sea Shore Hart ord ers Coming to Bavin Rock Dinah's Rock Port Iiee Other Places. There are several excursions this week to the West Haven shore. St. Thomas' church and Sunday school of Hartford come to morrow a. party of 500. , On Wednesday Hartford Lodge I. O. B. B., a party of 600, will come ; and on Thursday the Church of the Good Shepherd and Sunday school, Hartford. Parties were out Saturday bins fishing at about all the favorite resorts, try ing their luck, among them various of the most expert fishermen. But little luck was reported, the fish being small and the har vest small. Some who were out report the water alive with little bluefish, .and antici pate lively times again this season a little later. The Starin excursion to Shelter Island Saturday was, as usual, most enjoyable. The Starin carries another excursion to Dinah's Bock, Shelter Island, to-morrow. Dinah's Bock is rapidly growing in popularity as it deserves to, for it is a very pleasant place, with all the facilities for a good time. The clam-bakes served under the direction of the proprietor, Mr. Bliss, attract a great number of visitors and are really unsurpassed. The trip of Sassacus Encampment to Coney Island occurs to-morrow. The Elm City takes the party. The managers report every prospect of a good time. The party will be quite a numerous one, owing to the popular ity of the past excursions and their good management. The excursion by Golden Rule Encamp ment takes place in August, on the 19th. They go to Fort Lee on the Hudson. The Arctic Base Ball association give their annual excursion next Thursday. The desti nation is Fort Lee on the Hudson. It will be a pleasant trip to take. A landing will be made at New York city to accommodate those who may want to stop there. Tickets are only one dollar and the American band goes along and Mr. Flaherty will prompt. The long talked of picnic of the Congregation al andM. E. churches of West Haven occurred last Saturday. The day was pleasant in spite of the warning of "Old Prob." The Congrega tional party met at the church on the Green, under the leadership of their superintend ents, George Hubbard and Edward Reynolds Smith, and took the horse cars and were met at the corner of Second avenue by the Metho dist party, under the leadership of Mr. Van Steinbergh, their superintendent. The party arrived in the city at about nine o'clock. Su perintendent Quintard, of the little Derby, had five cars, one a baggage car, to take along the most indispensable part, the well filled baskets. The party filled the cars with out any delay, and were soon whirling to High Bock Grove, making a stop only at Derby to change engines. On arriving at the grove everything was found in readiness for them. The grounds were in fine order. The tables were set already for the tempting viands that were contained in the well-filled baskets. The party, who numbered over 350, soon made themselves at home, some making for the boats, which were soon filled with young folks and a sprinkling of older ones. Some of the party wandered up the recesses of the glen and gorge, and a few of them to the summit of High Rock. About one o'clock Rev. Mr. Brooks sounded the dinner call on a huge triangle furnished by Supt. Beach of the Naugatuck railroad. Supt. Van Steinbergh joined in with a huge bell which he had brought with him, and the tables were soon filled with a hungry multitude. Next Mr. Brooks invoked the divine blessing. The table fairly groaned with the good things which were on it, and full justice was done to the ample repast. Some of the party went on to the pavilion and sung familiar tunes from Moody and Sankey, accompanied by the piano. More boating followed and enjoy ment in general. Great praise was given the grove and Mr. Beach. The party started away at 5 p. m. and arrived home, having had a ime time. xne x. m. v.
