An Eiteemfd Ladyi
Mrs. Charlotte Glover Mallory, wife of

in New York city, Wednesday, November 3.

A Long Spell.
It is a remarkable fact in the history of
steamboat navigation on the Connecticut riv
er that owing to the extreme low water which
has Drevailed this season, no New York boat
has arrived at the Hartford steamboat dock
from June 7 until November 3, when the
Granite State came up. Owing to recent
rains the boats will probably have no difficnl-
t v in making their trips for the balance of
the season.

West Haven.
The fine new three-masted schooner Or-
ville Howitz, named after a Baltimore law
yer, was successfully launcnea at uessner s.
Marr's ship yard yesterday morning at 11
o'clock. A number of invited guests wit
nessed the pretty scene. The vessel is in
tended for the carrying trade and is one of
the largest ever built at West Haven. Her
first trip will be to Baltimore for coal for the
Consolidated railroad. The vessel lay at the
dock where she was launched yesterday af
ternoon, the colors flying from each mast
head and the craft sitting gracefully in the
water, a credit to her builders and Mr. Henry
Sutton, who has provided none but the best
materials.
The new palatial residence of Mr. Wilson
Waddingham begins to loom up and speak
for itself as to its dimensions, and though
among the trees some hundreds of feet back
from the street, it begins to show what an
elegant residence West Haven will be able to
boast of one of these days. The masons are
busy laying the brick for .the second story.
The noble old elms on Elm street have cast
off much of their summer garment and the
cast off clothing is being utilized by some for

What the Elephants Did.
Nearly all the vehicles and other show
property of the London circus, which ar
rived here on a special train Saturday night,
have been housed in the buildings erected by
P. T. Barnum in the lower part of the city
for their reception and for the winter keep
ing of his own show. One feature of the
work of getting the London show's effects
under cover yesterday afternoon was decid.
edly novel and interesting. Some of the
chariots and other vehicles are very heavy,
weighing several tons, and were besides sunk
so deeply in the soft soil that it was no easy
matter to handle them. Too many horses to
be used conveniently under the circumstan
ces would have been required to furnish the
requisite power, and accordingly, Charley
White, the elephant trainer, brought
two of the sixteen elephants of
the herd into requisition to perform the
work. It was interesting to see how
intelligently the well-trained beasts did what
was required of them, and to observe the
tremendous strength at their command.
Turning their trunks around the hubs or the
spokes, they lifted the vehicles out of the
ruts, and after carrying them into the build
ing, shifted them to any position desired.
Une or tne chariots which they picked np
with ease weighed five tons. It was not al
ways easy for them to take hold of their load
so that it balanced well between them, but
they invariably succeeded after a while in
getting everything adjusted as it should be.
One of the lighter wagons that was being run
in had its high seat wedged against the upper
part of the door so firmly that tne horses
could not budge it They were taken off and
the elephants placed at tne hind wheels.
They gave the wagon one push and the seat
went into a hundred pieces as the wagon
rolled in. These elephants will do any bit
ing or carrying that they are ordered, and
for heavy work are sometimes very valuable.

College Notes.
The president yesterday noon called atten
tion to the rule that newspapers are not to
be displayed in chapel. His remarks in this
connection were quite necessary, since a
number of papers have been seen in - the
chapel the last two or three mornings.
There have been various reports among
the students about the parade of the Uni
versity Garfield and Arthur club, some say
ing they were going to Hartford to-night, and
others that they were to join in the parade
here this evening, should it take place. Col
onel Dimmick said last night that they would
not go to Hartford this evening, since no ar
rangements had been made to that effect. And
as the parade in this city is postponed, there
will be no parade here.
For some time past there has been consid
erable talk in college about forming debating
clubs, now that Linonia is no more. As a
result of this discussion, it has been decided
to call a meeting of those interested to take
some definite action in regard to this matter.
This meeting will be held this evening at 9
In No. 10 South college.
Prof. Sumner, yesterday morning,
place or tne regular recitation, gave a very
interesting talk on the subject of rent. At
the close of his remarks he said he would be
in his recitation room this (Friday) evening
at 7:30, for the purpose of meeting any mem
bers of the senior class, who might wish to
ask questions about anything connected with
Political Economy. This affords an excel
lent opportunity to those who desire it of
gaining some extra information in regard to
many economic questions. He said he in
tended to give this opportunity at intervals
during the winter, and he hoped that those
who came would endeavor to throw , off all
the restraint of the recitation room as these
talks will be entirely conversational.
In his regular lecture at 10 O'clock yester
day, he spent most of the time on the sub
ject of nullification, showing its rise and
growth. It seems that as early as 1882
South Carolina threatened to secede. ' At
this time she was the only State that claimed
the right to secede. All ' the rest of the
southern States endeavored to dissuade her
from her action in regard to this matter.
The Election.
Celebrations In East Haven, Branford
: and Other Places.
The East Haven Republicans celebrated
the victory by firing a salute down in the
center on Wednesday evening. The gun was
a good speaker. The colors were shown all
over the town.
Our Branford correspondent says : The
Republicans of this place gave vent to their
enthusiasm Wednesday night by a torchlight
parade and illumination. The houses of the
Republicans along the route were generally
illuminated, some of the displays being very
fine, particularly that of Mr. Hammer, Mr.
Lay, Mr. Jones at the Totoket, P. Hall, the
Lock works and others. Rockets and col
ored fire were used profusely and added
much to the display.
The Bigelow Battery, of Bridgeport, com
menced firing a salute of 500 guns about noon
yesterday in honor of the great Republican
victory. They intended to fire the salute
Wednesday, but did not get ready in time to
finish before dark.
The Standard says of the Bridgeport pa
rade : The big wagon in front contained
several Pitchers who fired rockets and Ro
man candles and burned red fire all along
the line of march. The citizens were out in
force, many of them carrying brooms to
signify the clean Republican sweep, and
the remainder flags and lanterns. The
uniformed organizations turned out with
full ranks considering the short no
tice. They marched well and seemed to be
enjoying themselves. Each company was ac
companied by a large number of honorary
members. The Old Guard carried a large
white horse made especially for them. It lay
upon its oacs: with its feet m the air. and up
on its sides were the worda, "Democratic war
horse 32U." It made a good deal of amuse
ment as it passed along between the crowds.
Behind the Guard were seven small mules,
one of which bore the following: "One of
the seven." Behind the seven was a large
mule. It had a plume in its head, and on
the blanket were the words, "We've got 'em."
This feature seemed to take well among the
crowd also. The steam calliope furnished
some very loud music at different points dur
ing the march. The illuminations were very
general and unusually fine, even for Bridge-
pore, wmcn nas surpassed itself in lllumini
bona for Republican parades during this
campaign. On some streets it seemed as if
every house was illuminated or decorated.
The Great Parade in Guilford To-Hfight.
To-night Guilford Republicans will cele
brate in fine style. The procession will be a

panies of that command will participate, as
also the following New Haven organizations,

Ninth Ward Regulators. A fine time can be
promised with the right weather. A special
tram leaves this city at 7:30.
The Hartford Parade To-Night.
At the great parade to-night in Hartford

Women's Christian Association, held at the
Y. M. C. A. rooms, was largely attended, -the
room being full, and many , in influential cir

She spoke for three-quarters of an hour,
giving an address of much power and feeling
on tle subject "Who Wins?" in reference to
women's sphere, work and usefulness, and
closed with impassioned remarks in reference
to the death of her sister, which was very
affecting. Miss Willard thea read the con
stitution which had been prepared, and which
it was proposed to adopt for the formation of

Three Westport Brothers Celebrate Their
Seventieth Birthday.
Messrs. Frederick, Francis and Franklin
Sherwood, brothers, and the survivors of a
family of ten children, celebrated the seven
tieth anniversary of their birthday at West-
port, Conn., yesterday. The family Bible,
containing the record which shows that they
were born November 3, 1810, and from un
official records it appears that one of the
most severe snow storms ever known occur
red on that day. At the entertainment which
thev offered there were three tables with
guests, each brother presiding at a table, and
three floral horseshoes, bidding good luok to
the aged trio. About the year 1824 the three
brothers shipped on as many different ves
sels in New York for sea. They soon became
captains and followed their occupation thirty-eight,
thirty-five and thirty years respect
ively, and, having gained a competence, each
retired. Captain Fred made six voyoges
from New York to California in the ship Sky
light. After passing years in the coasting
service, Captain Francis made several trips
to European countries, beside his work on
our coast. It was he, as commander of the
Caroline in 1847. who bore General Scott's
disnatches to Washmeton via New Orleans,
announcing the capitulation of Mexico and
t.hfi sun-finder of tne Mexican iorces unaer
Santa Anna. Captain Franklin voyaged to
China and other countries in the East. The
brothers are hale and hearty, and resemble
each other so closely that strangers with diffi
culty can tell them apart.

Fair Haven.
There was another joyous scene at the Sec
ond Congregational church last evening,
when the pastor. Rev. Mr. Hovey, united in
wedlock Miss Ella, daughter of Charles A.
Bray, and Mr. Frederick Sherman, both of
the borough of Fair Haven Eawt. The bride
is a most pleasing and excellent young lady,
universally esteemed, and the groom is a re
spected citizen who nas recently built a
house on the Heights.. The gifts were many
and choice, and the couple start out with
every wish for a long and happy life. There
was a beautiful display of flowers in honor of
the bride and groom, and Messrs. Frederick
Monlthrop and Henry Gaylord officiated as
ushers. There was fine organ music by Mr.
Beach, the popular organist of the church.
Another of Judge Bray's family embarks on
the matrimonial voyage at the Second church
next Thursday morning at nine and a half
by the clock. There will doubtless be a
host of friends present. The groom is Mr.
C. E. Bray, the judge's eldest son, and the
happy bride Miss Ada, daughter of Willett
Hemingway, Esq.
The old wooden structure opposite H.
Tuttle & Co.'s drug store, a relic of a former
generation, having disappeared by removal,
the public how have the impression that Mr.
Lee Bradley, the owner of the site, is about
to erect upon it, either this fall or next
spring, a Duuding or some size, wmcn will be
quite a credit to this the - central business
portion of the New Haven side of the Quinni-
piac . -
Across the river the Hemingway block,
next to Bray's Btove store building, has been
quite modernized in appearance, having been
given a new dress in front by the knights of
the brush, which is quite an improvement.
Here in this block is P. B. Beebe's new
branch grocery store, which is also quite
'city-fied" in appearance, both inside and
out. ... . ..: r.v i
A rumor reached the borough from the city
yesterday that "New York had gone for Han
cock" after all, and Democrats and Republi
cans stopped at Brown's and other places to
find out about it. Hancock farmers from
neighboring towns stopped their . teams to
listen, eager to "carry the news to Mary,"
but went home with no change to report.
Sixty Miles a Minute on a Tin Pan.
Arthur Fitzpatrick, who returned East
from Colorado a short time ago, gives the
following account of an occurrence in the
mining districts, of which he was an eye
witness : A miner and some companions
were arossing the Continental Divide when it
was (severed with snow. Three miles below !
them, down a decline of forty-five degrees,
deeply covered with frozen snow, lav the
spot they desired to reach, while to go round
by trail was fifteen miles. The miner took a I
tin pan, used for washing gold, spread his
blanket over it, got in himself, in a squatting
position on his haunches, tucked the blanket
around, held his rifle and other traps over
his head and got one of his companions to j
give him a push. He informed me he went
down at the speed of sixty miles a minute.
and bhot far out into the valley at the foot of
tne mountain. Winn he stopped he found
the soldering of the pan melted from fric
tion, his blanket on fire, and it was his im
pression that had he gone much further he
would have been burned up, together with j
all his traps."
Police Notes.
J. F. Kellogg, a dealer in sewing machine
attachments, was arrested yesterday for not
paying a board bill at Mrs. Andrews', 187
Temple street. The arrest was brought about
by a telephonic communication being sent to
the police office. Kellogg is also charged
with defrauding boarding house keepers in
Bridgeport.
John Reilly, who stabbed a man named
Granfield in the thigh at West bridge last
May, was arrested on Broadway yesterday
by Detective Brewer. He ran away after the
affray and retnrned a few days since.
George W. Connor, driver and proprietor
of the stage line between this city and Water
bury, was arrested yesterday for violating a
city ordinance regarding the transportation
of powder through the city. He had two
kegs of powder in his stage to be transported,
and the same were seized by Fire Marshal
Kennedy, who also made the arrest. Bonds
for Connor's appearance before the City
Court were given, and he was released.

For the last 4 years Frank has made it a Doint to

him over any of his competitors ; hi fact, he buys
from 15 to 25 per cent, cheaper than most anybody
else. Besides, he occupies his own store In Frank's
