A wickedly false report was sent over the country yesterday to the effect that Gen. Grant had dropped dead upon the street in New York. When the fact was developed that the report was false there was a very general idea that its or igin had some connection with the tele graphers' strike, but this the telegraphers indignantly deny. While there was a feeling of indignation that such a report should be circulated there was universal pleasure upon its falsity being ascertain ed. I DOUSE Y'S DOSE.

It is an expose of his political party which will repay perusal and preservation. THE TELEGRAPHERS' S Tit I ICE . The threatened strike of telegraph oper ators was inaugurated throughout the country yesterday, but from present indi cations is likely to prove much less serious than was anticipated. In the larger com mercial cities business will be temporarily disarranged, but the resources of the telegraph companies are such that even this is not likely to be prolonged. The business men manifest a disposition to adapt themselves to the situation and confine their messages to the most important matters, thereby re lieving the company to some extent from the demands usually made upon them. The sentiment is very general among busi ness men that the strike is one which should not be prolonged, and while those who have investigated the matter agree that the demands of the brotherhood are too extreme, the general feeling is that a satisfactory compromise can and should be reached. Gen. Eckert's request to be furnished with the list of dissatisfied employes, has now been practically answered by the vacation of their positions and the company can now act tntelligently. We do not believe the telegraphers themselves expect their full demands to be complied with, but they have evidently asked more than they expect for the purpose of having a basis for com promise. While the public sentiment may agree that they are entitled to some con cession, it will almost unanimously agree that they have asked too much, and a com promise, fair to both parties, is all that can be reasonably expected, and all that business interests or popular sentiment will expect or demand. The well filled telegraphic news columns of the Globe this morning affords ample evidence that the strike cannot cripple the telegraphic service, as was anticipated. The Globe special wire was in active use last night, in charge of operators in oui- employ, who are not affected by the strike, and the associated press report was handled in good shape m St. Paul last night. The contest is one which cannot long continue, and very soon, either by compromise or in some other manner, the telegraphic business of the country will proceed as usual. The public interests at stake are too great and vital to be permanently crippled by such a contest. CASUALTIES. A Terribly Destructive Fire in New York Yesterday — The J-oss Footing; up to About A Million Dollars. A THEEE MILLION DOLLAB FIBE. New York, July 19.— At about 10:30 o'clock this morning a spark from an en gine fell into a pile of jute, which had just been landed on Parbeck's dock from the ship Lawrence E . Delap from Cal cutta. The dock was filled with hemp, jute and coffee. The flames spread with rapidity and in a few minutes the entire dock was ablaze. The Delap was the first vessel to catch fire and all her rigging was burned before she could be towed out. Next to her on the south side of the dock was the ship Severance, also from Cal cutta, which arrived yesterday, and on the north side lay the ship Col . Adair from Calcutta, which arrived yesterday, and on the north side lay the ship Col. Adams from Calcutta. To both these vessels the flames communicated and the crews jumped overboard for safety. In the meantime a general alarm had been sent o m and five steamers and four l> ook and ladder trucks were soon on the spat : When the firemen reached the dock the support of the roof gave way and the roof fell in with a crash, burying over a dozen firemen and dock hands beneath the ruins. A rescuing party quickly formed, and the men were dragged out from the blazing rafters, none being dead but all more or less burned and bruised. Firemen McNamara, McDonald and McDougall, of hook and ladder truck, were the three injured seriously. A com ; motion just then occurred in the crowd, and the chief of the battalion gave orders to clear the dock as the ship Lawrence Delap, which was now on fire above and below, contained 4,500 bags of saltpetre. A rush was made by the crowd to the fur ther end cl the dock. While this wag going on a hasting derrick, from which * the supports tad been burned, fell over on the wharf <?r:th a crash, knocking two dockmen overboard. Custom house in spector, Hanaden, in attempting to escape from the ship Col . Adams, was severely burned about the face and hand?. The ships, Perseverance and Col. Adams, had by this time been towed far out in the stream and the tugs poured streams of water into their holds. The efforts of the firemen were mainly directed to extin- ! guishing the ~ amOg on board the Law , ' renoQ ft Delap, on which it v/£3 j momentarily feared an explosion IwoioH take place. At 11:30 she was still biasing fiercely, but the extent of tho losses are unknown but undoubtedly heavy. Later. — The district officer at Harbeck's dock stated the captain of the Lawrence E. Delap, with his wife and three children, are reported drowned. Two dock hands are also reported drowned and one sailor killed outright by falling timber . The Loss now is estimated at between $2,000, --000 and $3,000,000. Bbookltn, July 19. — A fire is now raging at the Harbeck stores. Two sheds are de stroyed and a full rigged ship and bark supposed to be laden with seed oil, paints and general merchandise are burning. The surrounding shipping is in danger. THE COTTON CATTEBPILLAB. Selma, Ala., Julyl9. — The cotton catter piller has made a general appearance in this seotion. An examination of the crop near this city shows the top leaves badly riddled. Plenty of worms are in sight and webbed up. The crop iB three weeks late, and the worms are in such numbers two weeks earlier than usual . FTJNEBAL OF TOM THUMB AT BEIDGEPOBT. Bbidgepobt, Conn., July 19. — The funer al of Tom Thumb took place to-day with Masonic ceremony. Fully 10,000 people viewed the remains. The exports of provisions, tallow and dairy products for the six months ending June 30, 1883, were $52,515,437, against $50,708,190 the same time in 1882. The exports of provisions and tallow for eight months ending Jnne 30, 1883. were $65, --076,580, against $65,474,116 the same pe riod in 1882. The exports of dairy products for two months ending June 30, 1883, were $20,090,413, against $20,280,383 the same time in 1882. ["The president appointed John G.

Short Xitnc t> Xiayara . The railroad headquarters in St. Paul have received a joint circular from the Baitimore A: Chicago Railroad company, the Wabash, St. Louis & Pacific railway. and the Grand Trunk railway, (Great West ern division,) advising them that arrange ments have been perfected far opening what will be known as the Chicago, Detroit & Niagara Falls Short line. It is the in tention of the management to fully equip the new short line with all the modern im provements for fast time and with solid trains consisting of through coaches, parlor, sleeping and dining cars, with a schedule of time that will render it by far the shortest and quickest route to Niagara Falls. Coupon tickets should read: Chicago and Auburn Junc tion via Baltimore «fc Ohio railroad, 148 miles; Auburn Junction and Detroit via Wabasha, St. Louis & Pacific railway, 125 miles; Detroit and Suspension Bridge or Niagara Falls via Grand Trunk railway, (Great Western division) 125 miles. The circular is signed by C. K. Lord, general passenger agent, and L. M . Cole, general ticket agent of the Baltimore <fc Ohio Rail road company; H. C. Townsend, general passenger agent, and F. Chandler, general ticket agent of the Wabash, St. Louis <fc Pacific railway; James |Stephenson, gen eral passenger agent, and William Edgar, assistant general passenger agent of the Grand Trunk railway. * Cutting Down on li<tijija<ie. An order has been issued by the St . Paul & Manitoba road, dated the 14th, in which they say that from and after that date no sample trunk will be checked for transpor tation on that road weighing more than 250 pounds, but no limit will be made to the number of gross weight of sample trunks checked on one ticket, provided always the proper amount of excess is paid. So much of joint circular of March 1, 1883, as conflicts with the above is rescinded. The Manitoba Southwestern Colonization Railway. The Manitoba Southwestern railway en gineers are still engaged running trial lines in townships 4 and 5, range 7. They appear to be meeting with considerable difficulties, a3 by all accounts their lines are exceedingly crooked and graced with occasional right-angles. The engineers are reticent and give no information. The Nelson Mountaineer states that at a meet ing of citizens held Monday, July 9, rail way matters came up for consideration, and after some discussion it was decided to endeavor to arrange an interview be tween Mr. Hill and representatives of the town of Nelson. Accordingly, on Tuesday Mr. Hill was telegraphed requesting him to appoint a time and place of meeting. His reply was receiyed on Thursday and was to the effect that the surveys were not yet far enough advanced to warrant any definite arrangement, and that theiefore an interview at the present would be a mere waste of time, as nothing could be accomplished. The Northern RmUway of Toronto to b Extended to Lake Xipissing. The report is current that the Northern railway, of Ontario, is to be extended from Gravenhurst to South East bay, or Lake Nipissing. This indentation is said to be one of the finest harbors and boom ing grounds on the lake, and a number of lumber firms have their mind's eye on the locality for mills as soon as transpor tation facilities are afforded. South East Bay is looked upon as the coming town of Lake Nipissing. The lake, which is 100 miles long, and from 20 to 30 miles wide and of irregular outlines, will eventually become the center of important lumber interests, and the product of the mills then will doubtless find a market westward, in Manitoba, over the Canadian Pacific rail road, or its rival to be on the south shore of Lake Superior. Much of the lumber to be produced in that region will also go westward by way of the lake and rail route. The cut of timber about Lake Nipissing the past winter amounted to 1,000,000 cubic feet, and all of fine qual ity. Suit Ended. The well-known suit of the Northwestern Fuel company against the Burlington Cedar Rapids & Northern Railroad com pany, in the United States circuit court has been disposed of. The first day of the trial was taken up by the court listening to arguments by counsel on objections to the admissibility of evidence. Judge Mil ler declined to render a final decision on the points raised and concluded to testimony on the part of the plaintiff When the testimony on the part of the plaintiff a s concluded the court intimat ed that the testimony failed to prove a breach of the contract. A motion was then made for a verdict for the defendant but the plaintiff preferred to take a non suit which was allowed, and the plaintiff, was given till December I to move for a new trial to be submitted d 9 Written argu ments to Judge Millefi All attachments were vacated and ail ihe property attack ed released.

The Veto Floating Palace. [Special Correspondence to the Globe, j St. Louis, July 19. — Your city's most worthy namesake and precocious foster child, the "Saint Paul," of the St. Loais & St. Paul Packet company's fleet of ele gant side wheel liners, departed hence yesterday afternoon with such a load of passengers (200 in number) that my Faber shoving proclivities are about at a loss when I would describe the scene ©n the company's wharf boat at the time of de parture. The creme de la creme of the best society, not only from St. Louis but also from many cities south, east and west were there, about to start out in search of that world renowned rejuvenating fountain of the doubty old Spanish cavalier, Ponce de Leon, which in the winter is to be found among the orange groves and magnolias of Florida, but which miraculously transfers itself in summer to the breezy hills and lakes of Minnesota. As I walked the Saint Paul's magnificent saloon glancing here and there in the inquiring mood of a special correspondent, I could not but envy this appropriately dressed crowd of tour ists, the many varying pleasures they were about to enjoy. I write of appropriately dressed tourists as a-lack a-day it has been my luck so often to see parties starting en a tour gotten up as for a ball room, that yesterday afternoon's experience of their absence was particularly refreshing. What is that bevy of buxom beat^ies crowding together for? Ah! I see. We have a photographer at the entrance to the saloon adjusting his camera for a picture of the Interior of the cabin and its motley group ings and my fair friends are posing so that they may add to the general effect of the picture by embodying in it their pret ty, piquant profiles. Vanity you say — not a bit of it, a simple desire to serve the photographer, that is all. The Saint Paul's saloon ia chastely beautiful, painted iD pure white, with here and there a glimpse of color and a touch of gold . As to her staterooms, I overheard a lady re mark: "They are the very personification of neatness and fairly woo to sweet slum ber ."As I made the down trip from|St.Paul in this boat, I fully appreciate the delights of her table, the presiding genius over which knows exactly how to suit every body's taste and who is limited in selection only by the contents of the St. Louis and other markets along the line of the river. I hear the band tuning up, but no dance for me; it must be my 6ignal for going ashore. And still 'tis hard, oh very hard, to tear myself away, not only from this beautiful boat, with her load of happy tourists, but from joys which but a short two weeks since were mine among the hills and dells and breezy slopes of bonnie Minnetonka, and which in four short days the good Saint Paul would again p* ace w;tbin my reach, With tue harsh jingle of the warning bell sounding in my ears I cross the gang plank, but still linger on the now crowded wharf boat, where, with the friends of those happy mortals on the steamer, I prepare my handkerchief far a salute: a final wave and it may be a signal of a -till more tender, ualure to a bright-eyed lassie who i= even now at tracting my attention vj-ith her handker chief. The final bell lias sounded. The Saint Paul is üßdor way; a hundred hand kerchiefs waving, answered by a hundred more from tha wharf boat. Adieu. No 1 . An an reveir, for surely I shall the next up trip enroll mysell on your passenger list, and once again enjoy your hospitali tie?. the kindly attentions of your gen tlemanly and efficient officer, trip the light fantastic to your excellent band's sweet music, partake of £ho choice fare so courteously provided, and finally the hapDy journey ended, hie me away to the embowered shores of lovely Minne tonka where the cool breeze.*? from lake and prairie will serve to make me forget ful of the discomforts now ever present with your all but half-roasted correspond, ent.

THE FIRST. n»e Regiment r;iirly Encamped at White Bear— The Boys la Excellent Spirits and Determined to >tand by tne Old Flag— Notes From the Teuted Field. ' At ;t:-*,O yesterday morning six com panies of the First regiment of Minne sota Guards marched from the St. Paul armory to thu union depot, led by the regimental band and drum corps. The six companies being C, D and E of St. Paul, F of Fergus Falls, G of Red Wing and H of Litchfield, moved down Third street in column by platoons and marched well, though the glistening helmets did show some irregularities of line. The improvement • in appearance of the battalion from all the companies being uniformed alike was corumented upon by spectators on the streets who remembered the appearance of the first battalion last year or saw the Second regiment at New Ulm last week with its varied company uniforms. At the union depot the six compaanies. after some delay were placed on board cars of the St. Paul & Duluth road, and at 10 o'clock companies A, B and I name in from Minneapolis. As soon as these com panies could change cars the train pulled out, and half an hour after the regiment was completed by meeting the Stillwater company at White Bear station . Here the regiment was reformed in line and marchsd at once to the camp ground, situ ated a few hundred yards northeasterly from the Williams house, in a cleared grass field about opposite Spirit island bridge. The regiment was halted and faced into line in front of the camp, and as it marched up, showed a good deal of inequality in march ing and delay in coming into line. Orders were at once issued for guard detail, and the companies dismissed to their tents, where most of the men were for some time busy organizing messes and otherwise making ready for camp life. Guard mounting was the first display of the pomp and circumstance of the new military town. The guard details, includ ing commissioned and non-commissioned officers numbers fifty, there being forty two men to stand guard for twelve hours, in three reliefs of fourteen men each. The officers of the day and officers of the guard are also detailed for only twelve hours, the object being to extend the instructive practice of guard service throughout the regiment in the course of the week. The officer of the day yesterday was Capt. Bean, of D company, with Lieut. Puseh, of the same company, for senior officer of the guard, and Lieut. Estes, of F company, for junior officer of the guard. The guard mounting did not present a favorable ex hibit of the training of the men, but it is to be remembered that only a few of the detail had yet had any practice of the kind. After the guard mount the putting of tents in order and preparations for dinner and eating the same occupied an hour or two, when the regular routine of the camp was taken up. The daily routine of the camp, as established by orders of Col. Bend, commanding, is as follows: 5 a. m. — Reveille. 5.30 a. m. — Company drill. 6:30 a. m.— Battalion drill. 7:30 a. m.— Breakfast. 8 a. m. — Morning guard mount. 9 a. m. — Second battalion drill. 12 — Dinner. 3 p. m. — Inspection of quarters, 5 jj» nil — Officers' school, 'J p. m. Supper. 7:30 p. m. — Regimental dress parade. r"l"]S 8 p. m. Evening guard mount. 10 p. — Tattoo. 10:30 p.m.— Taps. Visitors will be admitted to the camp without hindrance at any time between 5 m. and 10 p. m. Those who wish to witness the dress parade and guard mount the most attractive display of the day.can do so by taking the 6:15 p. m. train from St. Paul and return to the city at 10:15 p. m. On dress parade last evening the regi ment formed in line much better thanjin the morning and the parade passed, off quite smoothly. The exercise in the man ual of arms showed that the new compa nies have already been pretty well drilled in the handling of their guns. The guard mount in the evening was a great improve ment on that of the morning, the compny details coming into line in better style and promptly, and the inspection of arms was a little more briskly gone through. In the marching evolutions of the guard, the first platoon wheeled nicely, and the second did fairly on its second turn, but badly at first. Here the band, or the drum, m»js~; was scored" with and *.° r it* second mistake of the day. The detail of officers for last night was: Officer of the day, Capt. Blakeley, of E company: senior officer 3f the guard, Lieut. Mitsch, of D company: jaoior officer of the guard, Lieut. Estc?- ; of F company. The detail for te-3ay is as follows: Officer of the '.lay, Capt. Harrison, of A company; senior officer of the guard, I -'lent. Quonce of E company; junior Gilicer of the guard, Lieut. Williams of B company. Capt. Wrigb*- of C company, will go on as of ficer of the day this evening. Blakeiey having taken the place last night because Wright had just arrived from New York and needed rest after his long journey. At 10 p. m., according to orders and usual regulations of camp life, our lads in blue, except the guard detail, were all sup posed to have retired to their tents. It was understood that the colonel intended to strictly enforce camp rules and those who violated them might expect a day or more in the guard house or at labor in cleaning camp. But nevertheless there were some who wanted to hear the music and join the daace at Ramaley's pavilion, and there were others who wanted to ex plore the village and inquire the price of lemonade and pop away from the sutler's tent, and shortly before the train pulled out for St. Paul at 9:40 a score or two of the boys were seen far enough from camp to render it doubtful whether they would be in camp at 10 o'clock. About 9 o'clock one of tho artillery pieces was brought out by a freight train and unloaded under direction of Capt. Burger, State military Btore keeper and captain of ordnance on the governor's staff. Shortly after it was moved ont to oamp under Quartermaster Metzger. In camp the big gun will be in charge of Sergeant Sawyer, late of the Twenty-fifth U. S. infantry, who formerly served in the Second XL S. artillery, and is a careful and competant gunner. The gun will be need for firing once morning and evening each day, and for firing the governor's salute Tuesday next, when Got. Hubbard and staff will visit the camp for reviewing the regiment. Col. Bend last evening complimented Capt. Burger on his zeal and efficiency in providing for the camp.he having brought the tents from New Ulm, where they were in use last week, and delivered them at White Bear twenty-foar hours ahead of the time allowed him. He also deserved a compliment for bringing oat the gun and its appurtenances, which were separated and in care on the Sioux City track yester day morning. About 200 persons visited the camp yes terday, besides an equal number who as sembled at evening to witness the parade and guard mount, and it is probable it will be visited by hundreds daily and by thousands on Sunday and Tuesday. The train which carried the regiment to ( White Bear yesterday included eleven crowded passenger car?. Seven train? are run daily each week day between St. Paul and the lake and the same number of trains will be run next Sunday. Among arrivals at the Williams house, "White Bear, yesterday were: W. H. Sweeney, of New York: M. Lynch and wife and M. Lynch, Jr., of Vandalia, 111.; and W. H. Dodge and wife and P. Wi3eh ridge, of St. Louis. Arrivals at Leip's. on White Bear lake yesterday included Adolph Kalman, Mrs. P. Kalman and Miss L. Kalman, New York: J. L. Butterfield, wife and son. Hot Springs, Ark.; J. H. Werthen and F.

He asked three questions: First, can children be converted? Secondly, how young can children be converted? Thirdly, will they continue Christians? The first and last questions were answered in the affirmative. The second question depends for its answer on the development of the child. The following are the criteria of conversion : 1, To love to pray; 2, to love the Savior; 3, to love Christian asssciations; 4, to be anxious to work for the good of others. Among the arrivals yesterday was a del egation from the Congregational churches of Minneapolis, some of whom had been acquainted with Mr. Hammond in other meetings . Rev. Mr. Cary, pastor of the Presbyte rian church in Grand Forks, Dak., was among the visitors to the meeting 1 . An invitation has been extended to the soldiers' encampment at White Bear to be present on Sunday afternoon . It is not expected that they will come in a body, but a number have signified their inten tion to be present. The attendance on the meeting was noticeably larger yesterday than hereto fore, and quite a number of additional tents were erected. The Swedish congregations of St . Paul, Minneapolis and Stillwater will close their churches on Sunday and hold a service in the amphitheater at 1 o'clock on Sunday. Rev. Dohlgren and several other clergymen were present on tha grounds to make ar rangements. They have rented two large tents for headquarters. The German congregations also contem plate a camp meeting soon. The steamboat has arrived from Still water and lies on the flat cars near the Mahtomedi station. It will be re painted and put in thorough repair and launched in time for the great assembly which will open with lectures, concerts and entertainments Aug. 7, and continue two weeks. Inquirers are com ing in from various parts of lowa, Wis consin and Minnesora, and a much larger attendance will be realized than at Jany of the other meetings of this year. Special interest is taken in the lecture to be given on Romanism by Father O'Connor, of New York city, Aug. 8. An interesting incident occurred in the afternoon meeting. A man from near Winona said he bad been seeking relig on for seven years. He had heard of Mr. Walton, of Grafton, D; k., ' and had telegraphed to lim to meet him at this meeting. They lad come the one, ir>o miles, and the otl er, uOO miles, and had prayed together ; ncl the man professed his determination to live a faithful Christian life for thejfuture. The evening service was opened with a solo, beautifully rendered by Prof. Ray mond after which Mr. Hammond led in prayer. The congregation then sang, "Twas there he suffered on the tree." "Geo. Phitfried said," remarked Mr. Hammond, "We are sound in three ways: We are saved meritoriously by Jisus Christ; instrumentally by faith, and dec larativelyby works. This is the whole of it." These points were dis cussed and were illustrated after Mr. Hammond's manner with many anec dotes and various incidents from his travels in different parts of the world. The meetings are assuming a greater degree of enthusiasm, and the attendance and interest are on the increase. The camp meeting is to continue a week longer, and families are urged to come with their children, as Mr. Hammond, is specially gifted in the work w<;; a children aud young people. The serv ices to-day will bo at iV:3O d. m., 2:30 p. in. and Bp. m. Mr. Hammond will take part in all the meet ings. SQfttai persons professed conversion yesterday. J. D.Blake related an inci dent that he learned in Indianapolis after one of Mr. Hammond's meetings. He at tended a meeting of the Boys' Christian association, in which fifteen boys stated that they were converted when so young that they could not remember the event. This is regarded as a strong evidence of the permanence of thi3 work among chil dren. Others made interesting remarks. A conversation ensued as to the salvation of children, and Mr. Hammond's theory, in which Revs. D. Morgan, E. B. Warner and others took part. Mr. Hammond re plied to the question, proposed. THE ILiiES COURT MARTIAL. A IJricf Session of the Court Yesterday— >lore Evidence for the Prosecution. The Ilges court martial held a brief ses sion yesterday. After reading the pro ceedings of Wednesday, the judge advocate reported to the court his action in sending a telegram to Major Maginnis, of Montana, and the reply of that gentleman that he would start for St. Paul on the 23d or 24th inst. Major Myrick was then sworn, and tes tified as to the existence of the August, November and December pay accounts of Col. Ilges, and offered in evidence certified copies of the same. He was interrupted by the accused, who objected to the intro duction of papers of whose existence he had no knowledge, and which had not been shown to him. He offered to show the original accounts for these months, which were in his possession, and waiving his ob jections the certified copies were filed. The accused asked the qestion: "What is your duty as judge advocate in the pre sentation of documentary evidence?" Answer — "To introduce original papers as evidence, and if not accessible, to ob tain true certified copies of the same." Question — "Have you taken any steps to obtain those original accounts?" Answer — "On or about July 10th I served notice on Mr. Scheffer for true copies. The prosecution here closed and short ly after again opened by recalling Major Smith, who was asked if subsequent to theipayment of those accounts to the banking house of Spyer & Co., any other demands had been made for their pay ment. The accused objected on the ground that any person without authority might make such a demand, and that the question was too general and vague. The judge advocate said he proposed to prove by the witness that there was an application made for payment, and why the accounts were not seen by the paymaster. The accused asked that no member of the court form an opinion prejudicial to him, based on any expression of the judge advocate. The court then considered with flossed doors the objection of the accused, and decided not to sustain it. The witness then answered that sometime in January last Gen. John son had called and asked if the November and December accounts opuld be collected. The court asked if Gen. Johu-ou hau any authority to apply for payment of these accounts. Answer — Don't know that ho had. Question by the court — Did Gen. John son have these accounts in his possession? Answer — If he had he did not show them to mo. I don't know that he had. Gen. R. W. Johnson was then called for the prosecu tion, and testified that the pay accounts of Col. Ilges were never gin his hands, and that he never saw them. He was requested at one time to ask Major Smith if they could be collected. He had no interest in the accounts other than that. Col. Ilges asked that the paymaster gen eral of the army be summoned as a wit ness. The court required him to make affi davit stating the reason why he wished him, before they would grant the request. The court then adjourned till 11 o'clock to-day. THE OUTCASTS. They Were Cured for by Che Municipal Judge \«>ste.-<iay. Wm. McDonald, a participant in a sa loon row on lower Seventh street on Wed nesday, was charged wiU assaulting a man named Tracy with a dangerous weapon. The case was continued till the 2Gth, to enable the prosecutor to procure witness, and prisoner released on bail of $2,500. F. Dorsey, T. O'Neill and E. Hughes, va grants, were ordered to leave the city before noon yesterday or suffer a penalty of ninety days in the workhouse . John Musk, J. Kelly, C. McGuire, T. Morrison and O. Malquist, all simple drunks, were fined $5 each, or lire days in the workhouse. The fir3t three paid and were discharged. The cases of G. W. Reese, 11. SI. Littell. A. Schroch and W. Smith, charged with obstructing streets, were dismissed on payment of costs. Wm. Springer will be examined to-day on a charge of selling mortgaged personal property. Mary Coveran, an intelligent Irish girl sadly addicted to liquor, was in court for being drunk. The charge was brought by her father and an elder sister. This was a sad case — one which enlisted the sympa thies of many spectators, and the fine im posed by the court — ninety days under the excellent care of the sisters of the House of Good Shepherd — was humane and considerate. Mary's mother was sent up only a few days ago for a term of sixty days on a similar charge, The family came to St. Paul only two years ago from Winona, and consisted " of man and wife and four daughters, three of whom are excellent young ladies, whe earn their own living. The mother and the younger daughter, Mary, are cursed with an uncontrollable appetite for strong drink, and when under its iniluence, are abusive and quarrelsome toward other members of the family. Mary doesn't live at home, but comes around when these spells come on. and Wednesday was her day on when she abused her father and sister to a degree that rendered arrest necessary. A Rare Hobs Steal. Yesterday about midday, as the hand some pacer and valuable outfit of Godfrey Siegenthaler, attorney-at-law of Bridge square, was standing by that gentleman's office, ready to bear him at a 2:30 gait to his noontide meal, a man stepped from the sidewalk, deliberately unhitched the Rams and took his seat in the elegant coupe. Handling the ribbons with profes sional skill and applying the whip with scientific dexterity, he essayed to try the pace of the rare hoss, but unaccustomed to such persuasive arguments the legal p& gasus proved himself a rare hoss in verity, for he stood almost upright with astonish ment. The whip, however, descending lithe and sinuous, brought him down from his soarings and to the realities of mun dane affairs. With audden energy the fiery steed bent to his work, and dashed around the corner onto Wabashaw street at a speed which eclipsed any of his previous record. Dashing along in. front of a street car, whichr by the way, slowed up to admire fully the noble "Hippolex," in his mad career till he reached the Opera house, when he jwas brought to a sudden stand-still by the cycles of the coupe be coming obstructed by the loose earth of the street. At thi3 point the happy pos sessor of the fleet and fleeing steed had his attention drawn to the soen9 by a Globe reporter, who, happening to drop in (as they always drop in when great events are about to befall). " Either your horse is not accustomed to your driver, or your driver to your horse, Mr. Siegenthaler," said] the reporter. "My horse ! who has my horse?" replied the owner of the swell turn-out, rushing to tho window. In a second his hat was placed extinguisher-like over his legal cranium, and with three steps he was in the streeL, half a dozen mere carried him, with coat-tuil3 standing out longitudinally behind, up to the side of the valued and valuable animal, which gave a winny of recognition, with a certain tone, however, of distress and injury, at the same time winking his le.ft ear back with indignation toward the buggy seat. The seat, however, was vacant, the driver having leaped to the ground and sped off in the direction of Third street. * Here, however, he was brought to a halt by the polite attention of officer Bahe, who ac companied him to the hotel de ville, where he will remain a gue3t till Mr. Siegen thaler obtains the legal opinion of Judge Burr as to whether tho little affair was tak ing a lark or stealing a horse and buggj\ Wlnoua Excursionists.
