Her voice, a good mezzo-soprano, has re ceived careful cultivation, and has im proved wonderfully under a severeetcourse of training in Paris. It has a large range and is remarkable for the evenness of its registers. Miss Phelps sang "II Barbier" ad mirably. Mr. Elliot is certainly a srreat ac- quisition to a musical loving community, and we are glad to see that our city is no whit behind New Haven in its appreciation of his rare powers as an organist. The next recital will occur on Thursday evening, December 23d, and the solo vocalist will be Mrs. Robertson, of New Haven, for merly Miss Graziella Ridgeway, the eminent soprano. Entertainmenti.

The Clouds and Sunshine combination are to appear at Carll's Opera House Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and Wed nesday matinee next week. The piece is a popular Irish drama, dealing with peasant life in Ireland as it really exists and with ref erence to the landlord system. No doubt many will want to see the play.

New York ; Mr. Nelson Decker, Mr. J. Win ston Murray, Mr. Sidney Smith. Mr. J. F. Brien and Mr. J. H. Howard, all well-known lights in their profession.

That is-"too thin" for this weather. Ice was being cut yesterday on Judge's pond in Woodbridge, on. the Waterbury road, which was ten inches thick. Yesterday morning at 9 o'clock the ther mometer stood at 13 degrees above a drop of 13 degrees in ten hours. People who use a great deal of ice began to look happy in view of the flattering ice prospect. It was pretty cold for skating, but a good many went out for skating on Lake Whitney, but it was much less of a carnival on the lake than the J day before, when many Yale students were out enjoying the sport. Streams of water were turned through hose on to the lower Green near Chapel street, and last night the miniature ponds were well frozen over. The store windows were encrusted with Jack Frost's handiwork, and the fine plate glass show windows at Snow's, corner of Church and Chapel streets, in particular, presented a gay sight, with their frostwork pictures, which many stopped to admire. Last night the streets were deserted early and the frost king was still busy. ' College Notes. Courant this morning. May be had at Hurle's store after half-past 9.

" Ex-Lieutenant ' Governor Oliver Fisher Winchester died at his residence on Prospect street yesterday morning at about seven o'clock, aged seventy-one years and ten months. About a year ago he received a par alytic shock. He recovered from its effects somewhat, but his 'splendid constitution was broken, and after a brave struggle he suc cumbed and utter physical " prostration en sued, resulting at last in death. His death is much regretted. Mr. Winchester was a native of Boston, Mass., born in 1810. When seven years of age he went to live on a farm near that city. He remained there four years, attending school, as was the custom of farm boys, in the winter only. At fourteen, after having obtained a limited education, he became . ap prenticed to a carpenter in Boston, and work ed at this trade for six years. He then bought the remaining year of his apprenticeship and went to Baltimore, where he became a master builder. The first year he secured a contract for building a church an unusual achieve ment in one so young. It illustrated in a measure the enterprise which marked his en tire life: Until 1837 he remained a builder, but seeing a better field he relinquished the trade and opened the first gentlemen's fur nishing goods store in Maryland. That this store was the initial one of the kind is stated on the authority of a gentleman at that time living in Baltimore. He began this under taking in a year of financial disaster, but re mained in it eleven years. The store was on Baltimore street near Calvert, within a stone's throw of Barnum's Hotel. He sold out to Wil liam A. Danskin and came to this city. While in the gents' furnishing line he invented fa perfectly fitting dress shirt, a patent for which was issued to him February 1, 1848. In the course of his business he made the ac quaintance of John M. Davies of J. M. Da vies, Jones & Co., leading importers and jobbers in gents' furnishing goods in New York, and business relations were thus begun between the two gentlemen which culminated in the establishment of the Jong prominent firm of Winchester &, Davies, shirt manufac turers of this city. When Mr. Winchester came to New Haven he began the, manufac ture of shirts in the old Garfield building on State street, one half of which still remains, occupied by A. Foote & Co. The business rapidly increased and larger quarters were demanded, and Mr. Davies built a part of the afterward great manufactory ' of Win- Chester & Davies on Court street, which, in the height of its prosperity, was one of the largest, if not the largestpshirt manufac turing establishments in the world. The es tablishment was also one of the first, if not the first, shirt manufactories of the country, the firm of Winchester & Davies thus intro ducing a new manufacturing industry into the country. The Winchester & Davies shirts were long pro-eminent in the market and at tained a great sale, and a great number of hands were employed, the business materially promoting the prosperity of New Haven It is worthy of note that in the early days of this enterprise the sewing was done mainly by held in adjoining country towns ; and the making of shirts, previously to Mr. Winchester's invention, was almost wholly confined to the department of domes tic economy in home circles. In 1852, when sewing machines were introduced, the business received a new impetus. The busy mind of Mr. Winchester was never at rest. He was always planning, and no obstacle seemed too great for his indomitable will and enterprise. In 1857 he became one of the principal stockholders in the then Volcan ic Arms Co., which that year was incorpor. ated. Previously he had examined into the merits of the gun. invented by Tyler Henry, deceased, which the Yolcanio Arms company manufactured. Their factory was on Arti san street, in the premises now occupied by the American Fish-book and Needle compa ny. Mr. Winchester then resided on Court street, in the house next west of the old shirt manufactory. His love of . horticulture led him to the erection of handsome conserva tories, which for years adorned his gardens. The weapon made by the Volcanic Arms com pany was one of the earliest of the class known as repeating or magazine guns. Its main peculiarity, retained in the Winchester repeating firearms, is the tube, nearly the length of the barrel, for holding the cart ridges, through and from which they are suc cessively propelled by a spiral spring. The mechanism or receiving the cartridge from the tube and feeding it into the breach of the barrel was invented and patented February 14, 1854, by Horace Smith and Daniel B. Wesson, then of Norwich, Conn. The Vol canic Arms company was not successful ; and Mr. Winchester, having purchased its entire stock, formed a new organization in 1860, under the firm name of the New Ha ven Arms company, of which, as its presi dent, he assumed the general executive man agement. In October of this same year, a patent was issued to Benjamin T. Henry, the superintendent, for-an improvement on the patent, which received the name of the Henry rifle. Concerned with Mr. Winches ter in the Henry rifle was the late N. H. Gas ton, a man of some note, who built and re sided in the residence now State Attorney T. E. Doolittle's. During the next six years a large quantity of these firearms were manu factured, and they were partially adopted by the government in the civil war. In 18G5 a special charter was obtained, and the company was reorganized as the Winches ter Repeating Arms company with a capital of 500,000. Mr. Winchester now sold out his interest in the firm of Winches ter fc Davies, and devoted himself to the business of the company with which his name had now become identified. During that year and the next the Henry rifle was further improved, and the name of the weapon was changed to the Winchester re peating arm. In 1873 there were still fur ther changes in the weapon, including several to adapt the arm to sporting or to target pur poses. - In 1876 the company, to meet the demand for some arms of a larger range, prepared the model known as "The Centen nial. " The company shortly after began to manufacture- the Hotchkiss magazine gun, having purchased the exclusive right, under the patents of the original inventor, B. B. Hotchkiss. His arm, as altered and improved, has been adopted for the use of the United States army. In 1872 the- company began the manufac ture of metallic cartridges, and now the ca pacity of the concern is equal to the produc tion of one and a half million of cartridges, of every variety, in a day. The buildings of the company have been erected from time to time, as the business demanded. They cover a quadrangular area of about four acres. ' An immense quantity of ammunition was furnished by the Winchester shops to the Turkish government in its war with Russia. Governor Winchester himself visited Turkey during that eventful period and made a con tract for 200,000 guns, which he eventually turned over to an establishment in Provi dence. . The Winchester guns at the time of the war of the rebellion were for sporting purposes, but many were nsed by sharpshoot ers during the war. The later Winchester military rifle played not only an important part as a peacemaker in the Turco-Russian war, but likewise in the Franco-Prussian war, an immense number being purchased in France. . The Winchester gun has also fig ured prominently in the Tndian problem on both sides, and in almost every part of the habitable globe, civilized and uncivilized. Mr. Winchester was a Whig and later a Re publican. In 1864 he was a presidential elec- tor-at-large, and voted for Lincoln. : In 1866 he was elected Lieutenant Governor of the State when Gen. Uawley was elected Govern or.' He served the city as a member of the Court of Common Council in 1853.; He was a very liberal man and took a deep interest in educational affairs, which he aided with his purse. He was one of the largest con tributors in aid of the erection of the Cal vary Baptist church, bestowing at one time $10,000 and later increasing the amount to about $15,000. He aided the Scientific de partment of Yale College by a gift of about $10,000, and gave nearly as much more to the Theological department. -ne oi nis crowning acts of liberality was his founding, at a cost of about $100,000, of the Winchester Astronomical and Physical Observatory of Yale The observatory, to be devoted by the conditions of its foundation to the encour agement of original research, has commenced its activity by the establishment of two pub lic" services designed to supplement the work now in progress in other observatories in the United States, ana to anora sucn isciuues no the Horologies! arts and to persons interested in accurate Thermometry, as are afforded at the more prominent observatories of Europe. He was always reaay vo neip inose wno need ed it. ' He leaves a wife and two children Wil liam W. Winchester, intimately associated with the manaeement of the Winchester Arms company, and a daughter, the wife of Mr. Thomas U. .Bennett, tne secretary oz we corporation. A daughter died a number of years ago. Mr. Winchester was long a di rector in the Yale National bank, and was one of the founders of that institution. He aras a warm friend and genial companion, an untiring worker, of indomitable will and of great foresight and administrative ability. His elegant residence and beautiful grounds on Prospect street are among the finest in New Haven, and adjoining are the companion res idence and grounds of the late Mr. Davies, so long his partner. Of the original directors of the Winchester Arms company but one, Jeremiah A. Bishop, remains; the others. John M. Davies, ex-Mayor. Morris Tyler and Edward A. Mitchell being numbered among the dead. The funeral will take place next Tuesday morning at 11 o'clock. The funeral will be m Evergreen Cemetery. Found Dead im California. Wright Parke, of Watertown, Conn., re cently received intelligence that his son, Frederick J. Parke, who left Watertown four of five years ago, had been found lying dead in the Oretimba creek, seven miles from Hill's Ferry in Stanislaus county, California. His position was that of a man who had lain down to rest, and had died without a strug gle. There was nothing to indicate foul play. The body was in an advanced state of decomposition. Apparently he was traveling and cooking his own food, as there were found a sack of provisions and cooking uten sils with food. Un ins person was a silver watch, gold ring, pension paper, ins dis charge from a Connecticut regiment, and an account book in which was his lamer s aa- dress. Near by lay a double barrelled gun. The body lay on a plank, one end of which was in the water. He was buried on the bank of the Orestimba creek in a quiet, sha dy place surrounded by willow trees, not far irom tne spot wnere ne was iouna. Tne Beehive.
