The offi cers of the Iroquois, which arrived from Ilontf Kong on Friday, were very much Bhocked to hear of the end fate of the Oneida, nnd could liardly credit the statement. They had heard nothing of the occurrence until boarded by the pilot at the Capes. Muny of them had friends and relatives on the ill-fated steamer, whom they bad left in hlfru spirits at the prospect of a e pecdy return home, and they cxprceneed (ffeat astonit-limcnt nnd sorrow at the fate which befel them. They inquired particularly about the details of the clieimter, and seemed to think tbnt hang'mt: is too ood for Captain Kyre, who could thus leitve their comrades to penult with out offering them even the shadow of assist ance.

Post Surgeon at Fortress Monroe, Dr. Gratt, and Rev. Father O'Keefe, of Norfolk, on behalf of the French Government, as an acknowledgment of their services to the officers and men of the French men-of-war Lo Curieux, which came in the Roads last summer with yellow fever on board. Information has been received at Cherrystone of the total loss of the ship Crest of the Wave, Captain Jones, from Liverpool, with railroad iron, for Baltimore. It appears that the vessel went ashore on Hogg Island on Sunday night during a gale, and went lo pieces, and that all ' hands were lost. The life-boat, containing three bodies, drifted ashore on Cobb's Island, and and several other bodies have since been found. The wrecking steamer Resolute, Captain Baker, started from Norfolk for the scene of the disas ter, and will bring moro detailed accounts. A heavy northeast storm set in this morning, and she may be able to get to the ship. The school-ship Mercury i from New Tork, has just been reported as ashore some twelve or fifteen miles south of Cape Henry, but no par ticulars given. Assistance from Norfolk has been Bent. The sea is running very high on account of the heavy easterly storm, and it is feared she may be lost. GALEN AND ASPAS1A. A Monster Sonsntlon In IHnrfreenboro, Tend. Cowhides and 1'hyslc. The Nashville Banner of the 14th instant breaks ont all over In head lines with the fol lowing: Dr. Lightfall called at the Banner office yes terday, and stated to one of the editors that abont C o'clock last Wednesday be was engaged with a patient in his office at the City Hotel, Mnrfreesboro, when word wns brought him that a lady was waiting outside who was exceedingly anxious to see mm. lie lnumaiea tnat tne can could not be attended to just then, but that he would be out as soon as he had gotten through with the matter then In hand, lie had hardly finished speaking before a woman whom he at once recognized as Mrs. Emma Hlnes Foster rushed itto the office and cried, "You are the sconndrcl who bos separated me from my hus band," and commenced lashing him with a cow bide. The Doctor did not know how to aet under the embarrassing circumstances. He could not Etrike a woman even in self-defense, and yet the vigorous assault made upn him was more than ho could bear, so he hastened from the office along the ball into the dining-room, where the boarders were then taking supper. Ho was followed by Mrs. Foster, who appealed to and secured the sympathies of those present by stating that the Doctor was a vile wretch who had come between her and her husband. She seized him by the hair and made another assault upon him he, at the time, striving only to protect himself, aud making no effort to injure ner. Finally a constable ca.no In and arrested Mrs. Foster. While the case was being Investigated before 'Squire Clark, and the doctor was off his guard, Mrs. Foster suddenly turned upon him and struck him under the left eye with as wa9 subsequently stated to the doctor brass knuckles. The blow caused a severe swelling, aud resulted in an aggravated case of what is known as a "black eye." Dr. Lighthill complaius that his assailant was fined only three dollars, and that the feeling in the crowd appeared to be entirely in her favor, wlille he bad committed no oifeuse whatever, either against her or anybody else, and was acting only on the defensive. He further declares that "Dr." Jerome B. Foster, whom Mrs. Foster claimed as her husband, and whom she captured and carried away from Murl'rces boro, is a worthless, unprincipled fellow, whom lie had repeatedly discharged from bis service: that he refused to have anything to do with Foster after he had made the notorious marrlngo here about this time last vear, but that ho came across Foster in New Orleans last September, utterly destitute, and was persuaded to re-engage him; that Foster was to remain in New Orleans while the doctor paid a visit to Louisville, but that Foster, Instead of so doing so, came back to Nashville and went to keeping bar for his wife at the Half-way House; that he again met Foster abcut February 1 in New York without a cent and tardly a rag to his back; that Foster told h m that he aud bis Nashville woman had agreed ui on a divorce; that be would be a reforraod man for the future, and that ho had already re- turned to Louise, the mother of the two chil dren, who was living in Brooklyn; that he therefore took Foster for a last trial. but found out after they had reached Savannah that the rascal was corres ponding with both women; that when they recently cot to Atlanta, Foster was arrested for an advertising debt to the Constitution news paper, and wonld have been sent to lall It the doctor had not secured his release; that Foster is a consummate scoundrel, has been systemati cally deceiving his benefactor all the time, has stuck to Mrs. Foster only to get a support from her, while his affections are really with Louise, and actually connived with the former to make the assault of Friday evening upon the man who had employed, fed, and clothed him. aud had shown him every possible kindness. The doctor does not so much wonder at Mrs. Foster's belli Cerent demonstrations as that she could have been so long and so completely fooled by such a Uraeeiebs v.uinn. MOBBING A WOMAN. Attempted AsMasslnntlon of Mlu Kdlth O'Gsr nan at ftlndikon, N, 4. A Dlmimenlul Ulul. We find in the N. Y. TVorW of Sunday tho following particulars of a disgraceful affair, pre viously reported by telegraoh: Miss Edith O'Gorman, the well-known public lecturer, has been lecturing during the past week at Madison, N. J., and on Friday evening a disgraceful riot was created by some of the Roman Catholic population of that place, and an attempt was made to shoot Miss O'Gorman. Madison was the place where Miss O'Gorman first entered the Roman Catholic sisterhood n a nnn, and the headquarters of the order to which she once belonged Is there located. The sub ject of the lecture on Friday evening was the "Romish Priesthood." During the delivery of the lectnre there was no disturbance inside the room, but a vast mob gathered outside, and at the conclusion of the lecture, when Mlse O'Gor man rame ont of the church, in company with Rev. Mr. Parsons, and proceeded to enter the carriage which was in waiting, a rush was mado by the mob, shouts and curses were raised, and nil sorts of abusive language used. The crowd clofed round Miss O'Gorman, but were kept from actual violence towards her by a strong body-guard of the students of Drew Seminary. Just as Miss O'Gorman stepped into the carriage a pistol shot was fired directly at her, but for tunately the ball missed its aim, parsing over her head, and tho carriage was driven rapidly away to the parsonage, followed by an immense crowd. On arriving at the house, it was at once surrounded by the mob, and stones wero thrown and violent language nued, but Miss O'Gorman was safely escorted out of tho parsonage. A strong guard of citizens surrounded the house, and nearly all the students of the seminary re mained on guard all night, and a number of their body escorted Miss O'Gorman to Jersey City yesterday. It is not known who fired the shot, but the lenders of tho mob are known, and prompt measures will be taken to bring the guilty parties to justice. FICKLE FORTUNE. A Notorious Woman In t'hlrneo Falls Heir to a fori line of ;;iOO,0OO. The Chicago Jit publican of Saturday relates this strange 6tory: The rumor around town that the notorlons "Mollic Scotten" had fallen heiress to a con siderable fortune in Glasgow, Scotland, would appear not to be utterly destitute of foundation. Mollie has not yet sailed for "Auld Scotia," but has been legally notified that an uncle of hers on the maternal side an old bachelor recently shuttled off the mortal coll on the banks of tho Clyde, and had loft a will to the following effect: If no heir or heiress of his family turned up, he bequeathed bis fortune, '300,000, to charita ble purposes. If, on the other hand, his long missing niece, Mollie. was found, she was to be recognized as lawful inheritor of his fortune, and was empowered to act accordingly. After weary searching, advertising, etc., the missing niece was fonnd at length fallen from grace in deed, but not legally prevented from accepting the goods that fortune provided her. The woman whose unexampled good luck has made her for the time notorious among her tribe first came to Chicago in 1862, and since that time has been very well known to tho fast portion of the community. She came more than once prominently before tho public in sensa tional matters. The case wherein she had one Swift, a notorious gambler, arrested for stealing ner money ana jeweiry, is sun iresn Detore tho legal profession. Mollie distinguished herself in many other ways, but never won the applause 01 any except tno most aepravea. A moderate sized romance intent be written of this lortunate, and yet, oh, how deeply unfor tunate, woman's career. She had when very young nca ner native snore, sue came to this country while yet a girl in years, and since then has led an abandoned life. The woman is now nerhatis thirtv Years of acre, still fine look i ner but merging fast into the sere and yellow of premature decline, ner race is almost run. and too late to bring contentment to her polluted heart the cut ot fortune is ponrea into ner lap. She may return to her own country to become rich, but she never can enjoy her accidental wealth with the calm philosophy of virtue. A MABKIiGE OB A FUNERAL. A Fashionable Courtship Unceremoniously Ended An lAUlanced Lover Attempts to Kill Ills Bride. A miss who has been a few weeks in the family of Governor Randolph, at Morristown, N. J., says tho New York S'un of this morning, was attacked by a young man from Brooklyn, who made a desperate attempt to kill her.

Special Despatch to The Evening Telegraph. Washington, April 18. It appears that the bill perfected by the Naval Committee, which will doubtless be reported to tho House to-day or to-morrow, relative to the lino and staff of the navy, is not satisfactory to cither line or staff. The line thinks it concedes too much to the staff, and the staff that they are put too much in the shade. The staff are also bitter in their denunciations of thoso of the staff who from their positions have been able to influence the committee to give them the rank of com modore, while those of now equal rank, by the bill, only rank as captains. The lower grades of the staff complain that, whilo the persons alluded to have ostensibly boon working for their respective corps, they have really been working for themselves. It is very desirable that the matter should now be definitely settled by Congress, so that thoso interested may retnrn to their duties, and sot annoy Congress on the everlasting line and staff question. marine Court-Martial. Major and Brevet Lieutenant Colonel John L. Broome, U. S. M. C, Captain William II. Parker. Captain Henry A. Bartlett, First Lieu tenant Edward C. Saltmarsh, Second Lieutenant C. P.

This usually quiet neighborhood was greatly shocked yester day by the news of the suicide of Mr. Alexander Newbold, an old and highly respected farmer, who has resided for many years near Wrightstown. Mr. Newbold was a wealthy man. but had conceived the idea that property was depreciating in value, and that his family would be reduced to poverty, i or seve ral days past he has given evidences of being of unsound mind, and had been carefully watched. He succeeded, however, yesterday morning about 8 o'clock, in escaping surveillance, and, proceeding to the barn near his residence, hung himself from a rafter of the structure. From the position of the body It was evident that the unfortunate man had clambered up on tho joist, affixed the rope to tho rafter and around his neck, and then jumped off. This terrible shock must have broken his neck, killing him instantly. He was discovered half an hour later, his bat tightly clenched in his hand. All efforts for his resuscitation proved unavailing. Mr. Newbold leaves a wife and four children, and, as has been stated, a large and very valuable estate. No event has ever occurred in this section that has caused so much feeling and excitement.

Mrs. Emma Wtllard, a more than noted teacher and champion of female education, died on Friday last In Troy, New Tork, in the eighty-fourth year of her age. To this estimable lady the young women of the present day owe many or their superior edu cational advantages. Her birthplace was the town of Berlin, In the parish of Worthlngton, Connecti cut. She was born February 83, 178T. He maiden namo was Hart, and her parents were people of great culture, under whose guidance she laid the foundations of the thorough and practical knowledge) which afterwards distinguished her. She was the next to the youngest of a family of seventeen children, and alternately labored in her allotted place In the family service, and engaged with assiduity in the studies which successively presented themselves to her. Prominent In the family routine were readings from standard authors during the evenings, and many other plans for mental Improvement were suc cessfully carried out. Miss Hart attended tho village academy for two years, and then obtained a situation as teacher In the district schools. In this position she Inaugurated many improvements, which proved of such advan tage to her pupils that she became noted throughout that part of Connectlcnt. She married Dr. John Wlllard in 1S09, and abandoned the teacher's calling. But in 1814 financial reverses Induced her to open a girls' boarding-school In Middlebury. The dcQcien cles of the course of study then pursued by all young ladles were early perceived by her, and she labored earnestly to remedy the evlL In this she has greatly succeeded. The present female colleges have followed as the results of the reforms which she Inaugurated. After four years spent In experi menting and Improving her system, she determined, encouraged by her husband, to establish a female seminary worthy of the name, and to locate it at Watcrford. In 1813 she laid her plane fully matured, before Governor Clinton, who gave the movement his heartiest sympathy and support. It was Incorporated In 1819, and by an act of the Legislature received Its share of the Literature fund. In 1820 the citizens of Troy offered her a building If she would remove her school to that city. This offer she accepted, and removed thither in 1921. Her hnsband died In 1925, which event threw the whole business management of the Institution npon her. She was, however, equal to the task, and continued successful In every department down to 1838, when her sou and his wife relieved her of further caro, The various works of Mrs. Willard are well known throughout the land as school text-books. Her his tories and a text-book on astronomy are In general use. In 1S4C she published a work on "The Motive Powers which produce the Concentration of the Blood," contesting successfully the fallacious theory of Dr. William Harvey that the heart is the moving force. She was then sixty years of age. Two years later she published a valuable treatise on "Respira tion and Its Effects." Various literary and educational papers have been published by her from time to time. She has always given l;ir :-eiy of her means to aid the cause of edu. cation. At one time she planned and carried out the establishment of a school in Athens, Greece, In which city she had become interested while on a tour in Europe, This institution was of great use In benefiting the deplorable condttlon of that op pressed country.

The speculative interest of the week was largely diverted to the Gold Room, where much curiosity was manifested concerning the progress of the most recent 'bull' movements in the precious metal. That curiosity was not such, however, as to Induce any important addition to the number of operators who are now ranged on either side of the specula tion. The premium was lower at the close than at the opening, following the line of a curve, with its greatest depression midway of the week. The brokers, who, as brokers often do, bought for them selves when they bought on clique orders, sold out their own gold at the high prices ruling en Monday and left It to the cliques to rally the market again later on. The cliques, from all Indications, have not 'got ont' of their gold, and cannot, with profit, or even witnout loss, uniu iney nave raisea me market one or two per cent., and there rendered It firm enough to sell npon. it will be found, at no very distant day. however, that the gold movement, which la thni in what m pugilist would call 'chancery,' Is only snltsldlary to tne plans or the 'bull' cliques to extricate them selves from the extensive lines of stocks which they have been carrying through a very dull market, the public this spring Tiaving shown very little enthu siasm about taking part in the campa'gn, the case of the money market to the contrary notwithstanding. To use a figure wblcn the war has rendered familiar to so many of the cliques are building a pontoon bridge over which to escape the consequences of their heavy ventures In stocks. The firmness of the gold market Is to eon- tribute the buoyancy requisite to float the load, ana If by patient labor they can gradually and slowly exchange their stocks for gold at the present mar ket prices, they will, by accumulatlsg their money upon the latter, give it a strength which will cuahle them to make a succeseful retreat out of tho former. The sagacity of snch a ma- ncruvre Is on a par wih tho undeniable skill which these speculators possess. No operator can lose more than 18 per cent, on gold. A tumble in storks would cause him to lose possibly twice or tnrtce mat sum. i ne clique, like troops wen Dan dled by their general, are moving from one strAtegro position to another to enable them to gather the fruits of their campaign. They are executing a final change of base. Local Influences have or course their effect npon values at the Stock Exohange, but the above will De round to comprise ins mosi com prehensive view or the present situation of affairs in this department of Wall street. "The money market was easy at five to seven per cent, as the extreme rates on call loans. It will be seen by the bank statement that the ranks nave been more conservative the past week, and re duced their line of loans about two milllsns of dol lars ; but this policy was an offset to the decrease of resources In the banking movement of the previous two weeks, when the 'bear' cliques Bought to pre cipitate a decline in stocks by 'locking up' green backs, rather than the result of apprehension of greater activity In the Immediate future. The ex changes with the West and South are still in our favor, the demand from those regions being still inexplicably deferred, if not postponed. Commer cial paper is in moderate supply, and rates remain steady at seven to eight and a half per cent, for prime double names. "The Government market was alternately strong and weak, in sympathy with the fluctuations In gold, and 1 closed linn at the quotations recorded, in the Southern list the only activity was in the new Tennessees, which advanced to bS In the hands of the party who have undertaken to ad vance their price In furtherance or a speculative movement, foreign exchange was higher and strong, closing at 108(n;l0tf for prime bankers sixty dajs, and 10xlQ9X for sight sterling bills.
