A County Superintendent Arise* Upon His Auricular and Attempts to Ride. Yesterday morning Miss Alice Elliott, a teacher in school district No. 10, Wash ington county, accompanied by Mr. Pat rick Morrison of Stillwater, called upon Prof. Richie, stale superintendent of public instruction, as the bearer of a petition of the school officers of the district. The petition is given below, and to this the reader is referred for the statement of facts upon ■which the petition is based. If the state ments made in the petition are true, it shows the possession ot .a dangerous power in the office of county superin tendents, or at least that the superintend ent of Washington county exercised such a power. Not feeling himself called upon, or qualified to pass upon the legal points raised in the petition, Miss Elliot was referred to Attorney Gen eral Hahn, but that officer being absent, his assistant, E. P. Lane, who, while declining to give a formal opinion, advised Miss Elliott to go back and continue her school until the end of the term. THE TETITION. To the Honorab'e Superintendent of Public lost-ruetioD: The undersigned, trustees of school district number ten in the county of Washington, Minr.,raost respectfully represent that for seven eoasecntiye terms Mi6s Alice Elliott has taught the school in said district to the satisfaction of all the people in faid district; that she held a steond gmde certificate signed by Rev. A. D Roe, county superintendent of schools for Washington county; that the superintendent frequently told the people that Miss Elliott was capable of teaching in any district school in the county. The undersigned re-engaged Miss Elliott to teach during the present terra, commencing the 17th day of April last, and that she en tered upon her duties on that day, and con tinued to perform her duties until the 29th day of April last, at which time she was cited to appear liefore said county superintendent for the purpose of a re-examina tion; that she appeared at the time and place mentioned in the citation, but that the superintendent refused to examine her and only told her that he did not want her to teach in that district; that she might teach in any other district; that the trustees and people of said district No. 10 did not wish to make Hty charge, but insisted that Miss Elliott choulJ continue until the end of the t-rtu, and that thereupon the coun ty superintendent revoked and annulled the license issued to her and gave notice to the district clerk of the fact. That upon personal inquiry on the part of the trustees, the said superintenderit stated that he bad no other reason for the revocation of the license than that he did not want her to teach in that dis trict. The undersigned arc of the opinion that the action of the superintendent is based upon pereor.aj fee-lings entirely, and is doing great iujnsticTto the people of the district, wherefore the undersigned ask that said Miss Elliott muy be examined by the state superin tendent, and if qualified, that she may receive a certificate ana permission to complete the term for which she h;ts been engaged.

On the night of the 14th Officer Casey and Thomas lloran had some words dur ing which Horan drew a pistol on the officer. The next day the officer caused the arrest of Horan, upon the charge of violation of the ordinance againt carry ing concealed Aveapons. Upon the trial in the municipal court Tuesday, the ICth, Horan, while claiming he was acting in self defense, plead guilty to the charge of carrying and drawing the weapon as alleged in the complaint, whereupon Judge Burr sentenced him to pay a fine of $100, and the loss of the weapon by confiscation. Notice of a stay of pro ceedings was entered by O'Brien & Wil- Bon, attorneys for Horan, and yesterday a notice of appeal to the supreme court was served upon City Attorney Murray and Clerk Fairchild, the ground of appeal being that the ordinance is unconstitu tional. The result of the appeal will be watched with considerable interest as set tling the extent to which municipal cor porations can go in efforfc to do away with the very pernicious and dangerous habit of carrying concealed weapons.

[Special Telegram to tbe Globe.] Chicago, May 20 —Although the day was perfect, the bears couldn't drive prices down, and wheat cloßed at the top prices of the day; $1 27 is more than exporters can afford to pay lor No. 2 spring, and this, together with the fact that the short purEed bears have already covered, makes me think that we will have lower prices next week. The curb for June is $1.27*. Corn closed at about yesterday's figures, al though it tumbled earlier. The drop was caused by gentlemen who are doing business on wind capital, who wanted to cover. Just about May 81 you will heai a large yell from the elegant bears, and don't you forget it. The curb for July is 72* c. Provisions continued their excelsior move ment, and closed strong with lots of boys looking for them. [Special to Associated Press.] Chicago, May 20.— Flour remains steady and firm . Jobbers are looking around a little, but trade is generally slow. Wheat was fairly active and somewhat un settled, bnt firmer and higher, owing to the light receipts, reports of rain and the demand on Milwaukee account. Outside reports were not given much weight. It was noted that considerable quantities of winter wheat has been shipped to Chicago for lake shipment to the seaboard. Prices dropped early about a cent below yesterday's close on call, bat later advanced 1 % ® !■£ c, then fluctuated, and finally closed 1% c higher for June, %c higher for July than yesterday on 'change. Bales, $1.26 01.2798" for June, $1 25>i<gl.27^ for July, $firstname.lastname@example.org% for August. Corn was in fair demand, rather active at times, but generally easy and lower. The opening was weak, %@)ic lower, followed by a further drop of a @£ c, then advanced about the middle of the session X @&c, but at the close settled back and closed &@.VC below yesterday. Receipts large, shipments small. Sales 71},'@723ic for June, 71^@72? 4 'c for July and 72@72%c for August.

Pork advanced 30@40c and maintained the improvement. Sales, $19.40319. 67 a for June, $1U60@19>:5 for July and $email@example.com for August.

Receipts for t.he week of grain were about a million bushels less than last year at the same time, but were only about 100,000 bushels more than the shipments. Wheat, however, is depletiag, the shipments of that cereal ex ceeding the receipts by 350,000 bushels. A Seusion of Hufl'ragUts. iKDiANAroLis, Ind., May 19. — The state convention of women interested in the cause of female suffrage convened in this city to-day. A v jout 350 delegates were present. Mrs. May W. Sewell was elected president. A welcome address was delivered by Mrs. Z. G. Wallace of this city. Committees on enrollment, resolutions and finance were appointed. Several addresses were delivered during the session showing the progression that universal suffrage was making. A number of distinguished ladies are present, among whom were Miss Foster, of Philadelphia. A resolution of thanks to the Daily Sentenal for its advocacy of woman's rights, was adopted. A tele gram to the United States senate commit tee, thanking it for its action on the fe male suffrage question was sent by the convention in behalf of the women of Indiana. A mass meeting will be held to night at which Gov. Porter, Rev. M. Reed and others will deliver addresses. The woman's suffrage convention adopted the following resolutions: Resolved, That we earnestly call upon the women of Indiana to unite in the de mand that the amendment conferring suffrage upon women be submitted to the voters of the state for their adoption. Resolved, That as impartial suffrage is an issue broad enough for all parties, we invoke the co-operation of all men, irre spective of party, to aid us in securing to woman, as to man, the prerogatives of full citizenship and self-government. Resolved, That the principles promul gated in the declaration of independence and embodied in the constitution of the United States are essential to the preser vation of republican institutions and that the spirit is subverted in any form of government wherein is denied to women citizeus the right of representation and participation in the enactment of the law she is required to obey. At the mass convention to-night ad dresses were made by Rev. Myron Reed, Hon. J. 11. Maynard, editor of the Senti nel, Miss Foster, of Philadelphia, and Mrs. Goughar and Mrs. Haggert, of In diana. Kansas Crops. Kansas Citt, May 20.— Never has the growing wheat crop attracted so general at tention and so much solicitude in this section as now. The presence of chinch bugs throughout Kansas last jear, tbe general shortage in the crop resulting from these in sects, and the dry weather has made Kansas the pivotal point of the crop. The season has been exceptionally favorable. Reports from southwestern Kansas are wonderfully unanimous that growing wheat is in unusu ally good condition. Central Kansas corres pondents agree that prospects are very flatter ing. The late cool weather has been very beneficial aud the plant looks healthy and stroDg, promising a large yield. The average of corn is said to be very large and most of it up. Pasture is good and the general outlook is encouraging all over the state. Working for the Younger*' Release. Kansas Citt, May 20. — Lyttleton Younger, uncle of Bob, Jim and Cole Younger, the three desperadoes, now confined in the Min nesota penitentiary, was in the city yesterday. He has petitions from residents in Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska and Kentucky, asking for the boys' pardon, and is hopeful of the result. He says he has spent $20,000 for the purpose. He has gone to see Gov. Crittenden at Jeffer son City. — —^—— — — — — — ~ Au Unnatural Daughter. Muscatine, lo.^ May 20.— Mr. McMene mon, a farmer living twelve miles west of Muscatine, and aged sixty-five, was shot and killed by his fifteen year old daughter yester day. The father and daughter were quarrel liug when the girl's brother, aged eighteen, handed her a revolver, with which she shot her father through the breast. It is supposed tbe children d -sired to get possession of the father's property. The mother is in an insane condition. Chicago May Festival. Chicago, May 20 — Theodore Thomas, Madame Materna, Miss Eil ine Osgood, Miss Anuie Louise Gary, Miss E. Winant and Fred. Remmertz, have arrived from New York to take part in the M&y musical festival, which begins Tuesday. All preparations (or the fes tival are completed and the management are confident of a great fiaancial, as well as mu sical success. Narrow Escape from an Iceberg. St. Johns, N. F., May 19.— The steam ship Prussian, from Liverpool, came in collision with an iceberg during a fog and was quite seriously damaged about the bow. She was running slowly al the time, otherwise the consequences might have been fatal to all on board. Flies will recover animation after having been confined in a bottle of wine a whole day. STILLWATRR. W. W. Erwin, Esq.,of St. Paul, was in the city to-day. The Brother Jonathan left to-day with a raft of logs in tow. The Ida Fulton leaves next week for Burlington, with a xaft of logs for that point. The street force is engaged in lowering the grade of Chestnut street, an improve ment much needed. A saloon keeper was before the police court this morning for selling liquor without licease. He was fined $10 and costs. Paid. Judges Crosby and McClure were en gaged to-day in arranging the calendar for the next term of the circuit court, which will convene on the last Tuesday of the month. Despite the rain last evening there was a good attendance at the ball given by the Sons of Herman, and netted them a fair sum for their trouble in getting up the entertainment. The steamer I. E. Staples returned this morning from Burlington, lowa. She had some difficulty in landing on account of the strong wind prevailing at the time but succeeded iv tying up at the elevator. An old, and apparently insane woman, living about four miles from this city, wandered from home one day this week and came into tcr?n. She was found by her friends in the vicinity of North Main street and taken care of. The government steamer Bessie came in to-day from South Stillwater on her trial trip. Her machinery worked as well as could be expected, all of it being new. The Bessie will be employed as a dispatch boat and for light towing. Geo. E. Hays is captain. The Sons of Herman at their last meet ing, on Friday evening, passed a resolu tion of thanks to the committee of ar rangements, Messrs. Reese, Lustig atfd Noll, for their very efficient manage ment of the late entertainment given by the lodge at Music hall. Judge McClure denied the writ of habeas corpus applied for in the case of Harvey Hurbert, drunk, and fined him $7.50. The. prison er not being able to pay his fine, was committed for eight days. Ben. Bouse, against whom there were three charges entered, pleaded not guilty, had his trial continued until afternoon. He Bluffed and Won. [From the Chicago Tribune.] "1 prithee do not go." Reginald Mulcahey turned as these w.ords, spoken in tones that were tender ly thrilling, fell upon his good right ear, and advanced slowly up the plank side walk that led from the portcullis to the front steps of the terraced castle of Eth elbert MeMurtry, eighth duke of Blue Is land avenue. "I thought you would speak to me, Lady Constance," he said, to a tall, shape ly maiden of nineteen summers, who stood on the veranda of the castle. "I thought you could not send me away for ever without one word of hope — one little, tiny, Democratic-vote-in-lowa hope. I know full well that in the dreary, dismal New York Post editorial future wliicn rises up before me like a black- wipged spectre of the night there can be naught in my life but deso late days whose hours shall pass with laden feet, and black, bitter nights when I shall toss around restlessly in a poker game, thinking only of the love that has gone from me forever. We may never meet again, Constance — probably never shall, unless I begin going to the matinees — but I should like to feel that, although you can never love me again, never let me buy candy for you, there is still in your heart a kindly feeling, a tinge of pity, for one to whom your sweet face has for many, many years — way back before the White Stockings won the championship — been a beacon light to guide him safely o'er the wind swept sea of North Side life. Am I hoping for too much?" and the beautiful brown eyes that had witched so many hearts from behind the ribbon counter looked into those of Constance MeMurtry with a wistful pleading, don't-untie-the dog-if-you love-me look that wouldhave melted a heart of Chicago beefsteak. For an instant the girl did not reply. A look of pain, as if some sad memory had been recalled by Reginald's words,or a corset steel got loose, passed over her face, and then, regaining her composure by a mighty effort.bhe placed a tiny.gloTed hand on the young man's shoulder and spoke in low, measured tones that shewed, far more than could any words, the terri ble intensity of the agony that this separ ation was causing her. "For two years, Reginald," she said, "I have loved you with a deep, passion ate, all-absorbing love that would make your head swim if you only knew about it. I have looked forward with pride and joy in my girlish innocence and enthusi asm to the day when you should lead me to the nuptual altar and crown the sweet spring-time of my life with the golden glory of a love that should last forever. I had whispered to myself that I should make you a faithful, loving, always-have breakfast-in-time wife. There has come to me often a vision of a happy home, where I should pass my days in happi ness and stocking mending. But the vision has gone, the beautiful blue sky with its fringe of rose-tinted clouds has passed away, and in its place I see an angry firmament, across which drift the leaden clowds of despair. And so it is better that we should part now, before supper, and let the dead past be its own undertaker." Reginald saw that all hope was gone, that he was certain to be left on third base. "Good-bye, Constance," he mur mured. "I must go now, because I want to stop on my way over town and buy my sister a sealskin sacque." The girl turned quickly, and looked at him earnestly. "Do you mean what you say?" she asked in hoarse, anxious toaes. "I do," was the reply. "And would you buy your wife a seal skin sacque!" "Certainly," said Reginald; "two of them, if she liked " A happy smile spread over the girl's face. Twining her arms around Regi nald's neck, she placed her tiny head on his shoulder, and then the little rose bud mouth puckered up with a sweet, beatific pucker, as she said in tender tones: "You may call again this evening. Heaven intended us for each other." The Meckllnbmgers' 4h of July. Charlotte, N. C, May 20.— About 15,000 people to-day attended the 107 th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence by tbe residents of Mecklinbnrg county. Senator Vance delivered the welcoming address. Sen ator Ransom read the Declaration and Senator Bayard was orator of the day. The governor and staff, Senators Butler and Hampton and several members of congress, together with other prominent men from this and adjoining states were in attendance. Mark Lanigan, Esq., first deputy sheriff of New York city, recently said to a prominent newspaper reporter : "I had a very weak and painful back, vad could find nothing to relieve it until I tried St. Jacobs Oil, less than four bottles of which cured me completely. I have recommended it highly." SUNDAY GLOBEUSTS. Very little coal is found in Italy. Anthra cite is to be had in the Valley of Aosta, but on good authority the annual output ie said not to exceed 2,000 tone.* Three illustrious men in the realm of po etry, learning and philosophy have recently died, within a few weeks of each other, name) j : Longfellow, Darwin, Emmerson. The British government has decided to ap point an imperial commission of education, comprising twenty-one members, rspresenting different provinces of India, for extending the blessings of education to the masses. In ebme of the public schools in New York city a text book on the use acd abuse of al cohol is taught. An effort is being made to introduce it in Brooklyn. Such books are used in England in national schools. The monster, King Theebaw of Burmah, has recommenced massacreing his obnoxious subjects. He has put to death one of his wives, two half-sisters, the chancellor of the exchequer, and fifty of their relatives. A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner, neither do uninterrupted prosperity and success qualify for usefulness and happiness. The storms of adversity, like the storms of the ocean, arouse the faculties and excite the invention, prudence, skill and fortitude of the voyager. The remarkable statement has been made in connection with the closing up of the busi ness of A. T. Stewart & Co., that one-half of the clothing trade of the United States is in the hands of the Hebrews, and that the retail dry goods trade in the South has largely passed into their control. Henry La&dsell says most persons who have had the opportunity of observing allow that the Russians are a religious people. One sees this not only in the large numbers both of men and women who attend the churches, but also in the tens of thousands who yearly co on pilgramages to sacred places. From the vaults at the church on Broome and Bridge streets, New York, about a thou sand coffins with the dust of the dead have been removed. Only about fifty could be identified, though the vaults were closed as recently as 1853. Dust unto dust—undis tinguishable dust. Verily "what shadows we are and what shadows we pursue." A Minnesota inventor, says the New Eng land Farmer , proposes to send grain from the west to the seaboard by a pipe line, somewhat as pretroleum is sent from the oil regions, the grain being propelled by compressed air. The experiment has been found to work per fectly in a short tube, and machinery is being built for a determination of the merits of the plan. Cincinnati Enquirer: Gen. Arthur was our vice president and is now our president; and hence you will find that the tail is wag ging the dog while Ohio is breaking away from the party; and as the Whigs lost the government under Vice President Tyler and Vice President Fill more, they are pretty sure to lose it, it seems to us, under Vice President Arthur. Cecil makes a distinction between learning and knowledge. He says a preacher may have little of what is called learning, but he must have knowledge. There is a knowledge of spiritual things which no books and no genius can give. The humblest Christian may have this knowledge; and it is this "light from heaven" that creates the effective preacher, who carries conviction to the heart of the sinner. Full particulars of the recent discoveries made by Capt. Cornier, on the east side of the Jordan, are published in the quarterly state ment of the Palestine Exploration society. He found four great centers, the first of which he identifies with Bamorth Baal, the second with Baal Peor, the third with "the top of Baal Peor, which looks toward Jerusalem," and the fourth with the "Sanctuary of Baal Peor," in the Jordan valley, where the Israelites worshiped in Shittim. Canon Farrar in a sermon in Westminster Abbey, held the nation responsible for the prevailing immoralities of England. He pre dicts that God's inexorable law will at last send a Nemesis crowned with fire, trampling guilty nations into indiscriminate ruin. Na ture and Destiny are but the names of this it resistible Providence. The scandalous bronze lacquer age of hungry animalism, spiritual impotencies and mendacities will have to run its course till the pit swallows it. The editor of a well-known religious jour nal called one evening on a friend who was a deacon in the church. His wife received the visitor, explaining that her husband would be down in a few minutes. During the conver sation there were noises upstairs which pro ceeded unmistakably from the flogging of a boy. Pretending not to comprehend the cause of the sounds the editor said: "Perhaps I have interfered with some important engage ment of your husband ?" "Not at all," she replied, "he'll be at leisure soon; he's only furnishing an example of a Christian at work." The delinquencies of Christians of the fourth century were very much of the same type as those of professors of the present day. Chry sostum preached against the defects and neg lects of Christians of that day, and his ser mons give a vivid picture of the manners and customs of professing Chris tians in that centary. He re proved them for failing to search the scrip ture*, and for neglecting the reading of Chris tian books. Said he: "Draughts aad dice we shall find in your houses, books no where, or at least in but few." Feaelon: It is ordained by God that we be conformed to the image of his Son, that we may be crncifted to f elf; that we renounce sensual pleasures, and submit like him, to suffering. But how great is our blindness! We would quit the cross that unites us to our master. Let us live, and let us die, with him who came to show us the true way to heaven. We must take up the cross, if we would fol. low him. We suffer in the narrow way, but we hope. We suffer, but we behold the heavens opening. We suffer, bnt we are willing to suffer. We love God, and his love will be our recompense. At a meeting of the Evangelical Alliance, in New York recently, Dr. Hodge said: "The great question which divides theists and athe ists, Christians from unbelievers, is this: is development an intellectual process guided by God, or is it a blind process of unintelligible unconscious force which knows no end and adopts no means? In other words, is God the author of all we see, the creator of all the beauty and grandeur of this world, or is un intelligible force, gravity, electricity and such like? This is a vital question. We canaot stand here, and hear men talk about develop ment without telling us what development is." The Rev. Dr. Hodge, in the meeting of the New York Evangelical Alliance, defined his idea of Darwinism thus: "My idea of Dar winism is that it teaches that all the forms of vegetable and animal life, including man and all the organs of the human body, are the result of unintelligent, undesignating forces, and that the human eye was formed by mere un conscious action. Now, according to my idea, that is a denial of what the Bible teaches, of what reason teaches, and of what the cos science of any human being teaches; for it is impossible for any such organ as the eye to be formed by blind forces. It excludes God; it excludes intelligence from everything." THE ST. PAUL SnlpH ConseliilaM Mining Company. Preferred Ireaaury Stock Devoted Wholly to the Develop ment of the Mine.

The property of this Company is owned almost exclusively, ud is controlled, by Minnesota parties, among whom are many of the most prominent and successful business men of the state, ensuring for its management the best business talent and the strictest integrity in the conduct of all of its affairs; and being essentially a home enterprise, the attention of our citizens is especially called to it. The property is situated in the A.MOTJS S^IST JUAN EEGION, In Colorado, known as the richest silver bearing country in the world, and consists of four distinct properties, forming a compact group, with an abundance of wood and water upon and in close proximity to it. Within one and one-halt miles of Lake City, the metropolis of San Juan, the Denver & Rio Grande R. R. is graded to within one mile of the mine, which is of easy access at all seasons of the year «; . ' . ; - The mine is thoroughly equipped with a 20-horse power steam hoist er, and buildings. The woik of development is being vigorously prosecuted. The workings upon the mine have continuously shown a very high grade of ore that is steadily improving as work pro gresses, and with the careful business management to which it is subjected, warrants the statement that the SULPHURET CONSOLIDATED has passed the period of uncertainty and doubt, and now may be safely classed as a mine which promises in the near future to richly compensate its stockholders.
