The Ma-lley Trial A Family Reunited
A dispatch to the New York Snn from
Salem, Mass., says: "The Malley trial in Con.
neoticut was productive of one good result,
as it was the means of reuniting a family
after a lapse of twenty-eight years. Mrs.
Benjamin T. Wiggin, nee Grace E. Ben ham,
whose husband dropped dead recently, came to
Salem when 9 years of age from New Haven,
Conn., to live with her ancle. For about
ten years she kept up a correspondence with
her family sod then her father died. Her
brother and mother talked of going West,
and she supposed they had done so, as she
failed to get any letters from them after
ward. She soon afterward married Benja
min T. Wiggin. When (reading of the trial
of the Malley cousins, she saw among the
names of the jurors that of Silas Benham,
the name of her uncle, and she wrote to him.
He sent the letter to one of his nephews,
who proved to be a brother of Mrs. Wiggin,
who, with another brother, came on at once
and fonnd their long-lost sister."

The series of very interesting revival ser
vices which have been in progress in Trinity
Methodist Episcopal church for the past four
weeks have resulted in the awakening and
conversion of a large number.' The pastor,
Rev. Dr. Goodsell, has bsen assisted in the
work by an old and valued friend, the Rev.
Mr. Thurston, an evangelist from Syracuse,
New York. The sermons cf Mr. Thurston
were of rare power, devoid of the emotional,
but are vivid and striking, appealing direct
ly to the conscience of his hearers and well
calculated to arouse earnest thoughts con
cerning the Christian life.
Yesterday noon as steamer No. 8 was being
taken out of the steamer house, one of the
large doors swung to, owing to a heavy gust
of wind, and got caught between the rear and
forward wheels of the steamer in such a way
as to leave it, when the steamer passed out,
hanging in a dilapidated condition, with up
per lights of glass broken and the lower pan
els looking as if there had been a smash-up.
Chief Hendrick was notified and drove to
the house directly after the fire and carpen

the rink last evening to witness the fancy
bicycle riding by Messrs. Wumot and Alden,
the acknowledged champion fancy bicycle

$250. Some very fine riding was done both
double and single and their feats were well
accepted by the large and enthusiastic audi
ence present. It is to be hoped that Mana
ger Ackrilf will soon repeat the exhibition.
THE FBENOH LECTURE.
Mr. Harry W. French delivered his fa
mous lecture "The Land of the Midnight
bun before a very large audience at Peck s
Grand Opera House last evening. The views
in tuis lecture are very beautiful and tilus
t-ate scenes in Norway, Greenland, the Polar
ser and, by way of striking contrast, in trop
ical India. Many of tne views are of exqui
site beauty and called forth enthusiastic ap
plause. The lecture was a rare treat and
the large audience intensely enjoyed it. The
views presented by Mr. French are superior
to anything that has ever been seen in this
city. The remaining lectures of the course
will be full of interest and beauty.
Rioe's Opera company presented the pop
ular opera ' Molanthe" at Carll's Opera House
last evening before a moderately fair house.
The company has been changed considerably
since its last appearance here. Miss Rose
Dana is still with the company, and her ren
dition or tne title role was, as formerly, very
good. The charminc little "Phyllis.'' Misa
Ida Mulle, fully sustained the reputation she
maae nere Detore, ana delighted the audience
with her acting and singing. Her voice,
while not strong, is very clear and sweet, and
fully equal to the demands of the part. Mr.
Wilkinson's "Lord Chancellor" contains
some original work, but his voice is hardly
as strong as could be desired. The choruses
were good and the fairies as pleasing as
coma db expected. Altogether tne perform
ance is a good one and deserves better
nouses this afternoon and evening, when the
same opera will be given.
CHARLES WYNDHAH AND HIS COMEDY COMPANY.
The audience at the New Haven "Opera
House last evening was large and of fine
quality, and the company which played
"Brighton" there was a very capable and sat
isfactory one. It is a rare pleasure in this
city to see and hear a company composed of
something besides a "star" and a lot of per
formers selected because of their inability to
shine so as to divide the attention which is
desired exclusively for the "star." Mr.
Wyndham's company is one of superior and
even excellence, and the various parts in the
play, both important and unimportant, were
treated with a care and finish delightful in
its results. Mr. Wyndham's portrayal of the
dashing, reckless, universally loving "Bob
Saokett" was a fine piece of work, and Mr.
William Blakely as "Mr. Yanderpump" won
enthusiastic admiration and applause. The
other members of the company were pleasing
and effective in their speech and action, and
the performance as a whole was charming.
The company give "Brighton" again this af
ternoon, and this evening "Ruth's Romance"
and "Fourteen Days" will be given.

Dr. Noah Cressy, of Hartford, in his argu

day afternoon, in behalf of the State board
of health, against the repeal of the compul

belief in the efficiency of cow-pox inocula
tion, and said it was the only means of pre
venting an epidemic. He took issue with
Dr. Luddington (who spoke in favor of re
peal the day before) in the assertion that a
person may have the smallpox more than
once. In Dr. Cressy's opinion one attack
exhausts the blood of the matter upon which
the disease feeds, and prevents a recurrence,
Cow-pox inoculation, he said, is but a much-
modihed form of the disease, and prevents it
inst as fully, without tne attending constitu
tional disturbances ; hence the benefit of
vaccination with cultivated or attenuated
virus which he believed to be thoroughly
efficacious and protective. Dr. Cressy closed
with a summary of the development, growth
and benefits of protective inoculation.
