Tuesday night' telegrams from Ohio
claimed the election ot Foster by thirty thou
sand plurality. Lat night's reports reduce
the figures to seventeen thousand. If the
number dwindles down to less than ten thou
sand it will not surprise those who have be
comejaware of the fact that the first reports sent
out aro always favorable to the Republicans.
The Republicans have, no doubt, secured the
legislature, and this will result in the elec
tion of a stalwart to succeed Senator Thur
man. Colonel Camkron rays his letter to Rev.
Father Walsh, as published in the Appeal,
contained an error. The expression "make
np in prayer what we lack in gut" was
wrong so far as the last word was concerned.
That, he says, should have been "grub."
The letter of Colonel Cameron has been cen
sured by a very large number of our people.
He may have felt aggrieved at Rev. Father
Walsh's letter, but that did not justify him,
an officer of the State, in writing a letter
which was an insult to all the people at
Camp Father Uathew. The colonel should
have better control of his temper.
That Memphis! needs sewers and stone
pavements no intelligent citizen will deny.
There may be difference of opinion about the
manner of raising the money to pay for these
indi8pensableimprovements,but each refugee
ing citizen should make up his mind to comply
with the rules fcnally adopted for putting the
city in good sanitary condition. Many believe
that sewering and paving will prevent the
recurrence of yellow-fever. Whether that
result will follow, of course, no one con say
positively; but something of tbe sort rqnst be
done, and the work should commence as
soon as possible.

The fierce light that beats about beauty's,
throne has suddenly been focussed, through
the means of a scurrilous London paper,
upon the two reigning belles of the metropo
lis. Mrs. Langtry is the daughter of the
dean ot Jersey, an island which is famous
for pretty people, although it had not before
attained the distinction of furnishing London
with the beauty officially accepted as such.
II er early life was passed entirely in the isle
of her birth, and there seemed no reason
why she should tver have left it, until one
day an adventurous widower, who had al
ready taken one wife from Jersey, came
thither again and carried oft Miss Le Breton
as his second. They came to London with
out exciting any great enthusiasm or
becoming known to many members of
society until 1877, then, through a
concurrence of fortuitous circumstances.
Airs. Langtry was seen, admired and
invented as a beauty by certain amateurs,
who immediately sounded her praises
throughout the town. When the town came
to look at her it found she was indeed beau
tiful. She possessed wonderful eyes of a
limpid, transparent blue, which always wore
a winning expression. She was observed to
bo extremely modest in her dress, very quiet
aad unassuming in her manner and discreet
in all her actions. Jealousy was disarmed,
admiration increased and Mrs. Langtry be
came one of those sights of the town which
the "Spring Captain" yearns to see, and for
which country cousins make long pilgrim
ages by railway. "It seems but yesterday,"
says a recent number of Vanity Fair,
"when ai a bride the appeared in the park
and set ten thousand tongues a wagging.
Since then she has played a foremost part
in the battle of lite, and this bravely and
well. You lire spellbound by her ineffable
sweetness before you have exchanged hardly
a dozen words with her. Every well bred
woman is of course free from gene,
but this one is gifted with a deli
cious manner, simple and sympathetic
as that wherewith mentally we endow Mig
non, and she talks at once so prettily
and so musically that you are insensi
bly impressed with the idea of her absolute
sincerity. The bright, ringing treble; the
light, springy step; the happy Jialcyon view
cf life characteristic of girlhood, are still hers.
Above all, she is kindness itself incarnate.
At Glasgow, where that goes without the
saying she was the cynosure, she astonished
the canny Scotch by her generous impartiali
ty. The plain and unattractive partner
claimed her hand in the ballroom, and he
was not refused, though Adonis stood ather
elbow awaiting his chance. Lily-like in every
fibre, she has preserved an exalted reputation
lor womanly virtue, and this, although, she
has been flattered and followed, caressed and
made much of, more than any living woman.
She has remained, however, the same, true
to the gentle emblem forever hers, the Jer
sey Lily."
Lady Virginia Sanders is entitled to the
gratitude of London society for introducing
to it her nicco, Miss Fitxpatrick, who subse
quently married Mr. Corowallis West, ot
Ruthin castle. Rutbin castle is somewhere
in Wales, and tnerefore evidently not a fit
ting abiding place for a beauty whote duty it
is to be everywhere in .London, lo London,
accordingly, Mrs. Cornwallis West went, and
she was greeted by an admiration almost
sufficient to console her for the most pro
longed absence from her Welsh castle. Her
face is of that charming and peculiar style of
beauty that has always moved mankind more
than tbe most regular features, btie has a
very rich complexion, on which an occasional
freckle staaiDs a certificate of fineness and
thereby adds to tho charm of the general
enect. A splendid head of rippling nair,
which used to be very long until she cut it
into boyish curls, clusters framewise about
her lace, producing an etiect which many
London beauties have sought to imitate, but
which none has approached.- She is impul
sive, original, daring, and says upon occasion
the BDritrbtiiest tuings; and to her it was
given, some little time, to throw the whole of
a roval ball into dismay by an untoward
fainting fit, which was at once elevated to the
rank of a social event, bne dresses generally
in a careless and sometimes in startling
fashion. She is small in stature, of an ad
mirable form, and rides, with a certain dash,
both to bounds and in Kotton row.

Lebanon, III., October 11. The old but
true saying that murder will out is again
verified. Not longer than two years ago a
family consisting of husband and wife, two
children, and a brother of the husband, lived
in seeming harmony about three miles south
east of this place. George Danbrough, the
brother, was a bachelor ot about forty years.
He was an industrious, miserly sort of a man,
and it was consequently rumored around that
he might have considerable wealth hidden
away somewhere, known only to himself.
Sixteen months ago he was taken suddenly
sick, and died very shortly afterward. Not
being a man of very wide reputation he was
laid quietly away in the family burying
ground, situated on his brother's farm, and a
comment or two on his dying rather sudden
was the only incident to change the monot
ony from that of an ordinary country funeral.
About nine months ago Thomas Danbrough,
the husband, was taken very sick and quick
ly took his departure for another world.
The circumstances aronsed suspicion, and a
post-mortem examination was demanded, but
was strongly objected to by the seemingly
disconsolate widow. The attending physi
cian requested the examination, but the
widow declared she would not permit it. The
corpse vas kept over night, and she, locking
the watchers of the remains of her dead hus
band in the house, put the keys in her pocket
and declared that no one else should enter
the house, but was finally persuaded to give
np the keys to one of the attendants. The
husband was lain by the side of his brother
in the old burying ground. The circum
stances were finally conceded to be but the
natural effect ot a husband's sudden death
upon the feelings of a loving and tender
wife, who in the distraction of her grief
could not bear the thought of tbe body of
her dear husoana Deing mutilated by tb
dissecting knife. The occurrence ceased to
be a topic of interest. A few days ago the
widow, Mrs. Alice Danbrough, came to town
and entered complaint before Jus
tice Zarweck of an outrage commit
ted npon her person, by one George Listen,
a married man, hailing from East St. Louis.
Ho was arrested, and after a preliminary ex
amination was bound over to answer to the
charge of rape. Upon default of bond he
was sent to jail. The widow, in her testi
mony, stated that Listen came to her house
and demanded from her money and the sat
isfaction of his lust, telling her that "he had
in his possession a letter which would expose
tbe poisoning of her husband and brother-in-law
by her; that he then drew a knife and
pistol and forced her to submit to hia de
sires." This letter spoken of fell into the
hands of William R. Tipton and Alonzo
Harrison, two detectives of this place, who
immediately began to ferret out the mystery
of the case, and have succeeded with great
credit to themselves. The letter was dated
East St, Louis, and was from John Freeland,
the widow's own brother, and demanded
three hundred dollars from her, npon
threat of exposing the poisoning of
the two men. John Freeland was' ar
rested in East - St. Louis last . night by
William R. Tipton. All the parties concerned,
including Mrs. iDanbrough, John Freeland
and George Listen, are now confined in the
Belleville jail to await a trial by jury. It ib
rumored that Mrs. Danbrough, on being told
that the bodies would be exhumed, stated
that she preferred the body of her brother-in-law
taken up in preference to her husband,
as she had given him strychnine in small
doses, mixed with corn meal, he having re
quested her to give him some cornmeal to
bottle his stomach, but that to her husband
she gave a large dose of laudanum and ar
senic It seems that this female maniao had
in view another plot, namely, that ot mur
dering a neighboring woman by the name of
M 'Cloud, in order that she might marry
M'Cloud, the husband, she having purchased
a pistol and knife to execute her scheme.
The widow has two children, a girl aged fif
teen and a boy twelve years, and property
worth about seven thousand dollars.

PARis.October 14. The Eepublique Fran
eaise, organ of Gambetta, continues its advo
cacy of plenary amnesty. - It is certain that
if Waddington is overthrown, Gambetta will
not accept the office, and Grevy would be
obliged to summon Paul Challanel Lacour,
who would associate with himself a number
of extremists, whose names alone would have
the effect of alarming France and Earope.
The language of the Radical press is becom
ing outrageous, and is largely copied by the
reactionary papers.
Tbe Marseillaise! reviewing the accusa
tions made against Futeaux Humbert of
complicity in the Chudeb execution, . warns
the reactionaries that it is better in their
own interest to use the word "execution" as
. little as possible. They should beware of re
minding the radicals that the assassins of
communist leaders are still nnpunished.
hiouteillier, another extreme radical, has
been elected member of the Paris municipal
ities. La France gives it as the opinion of a gen
erally well informed politician that in Janu
ary Waddington, president of the council of
state and minister of foreign affairs, and Le-
Koyer, minister ot justice, will resign, per
haps also, Leon Say, minister of finance, and
that De. Freycinet, the present minister of
public works, will become the premier of an
entirely Gambetta ministry. It may be noted
the Pans correspondent of the Txnves declares
positively that De. Freycinet opposes plenary
amnesty, and will not accept the premiership
with the amnesty programme.
Dublin. October 14. ive hundred ten
ants of the Marquis ot Sligo and the Earl of
Lucan met near West Point, county of Mayo,
and solemnly pledged themselves to pay no
rent until a reduction should be granted pro
portionate to the great fall in prices of all
kinds of agricultural products. Notice was
posted at Warren Point, county of Down,
that any man coming into the county to pay
more than a pound an acre for land may
bring his coffin with him.

Roberts and staff visited the last residency at
Cabul, portions of which were burned, but

completely looted. The bodies of Major
Cavagnan and Dr. Kelly are said to be buried
beneath the pile of debrta and charred logs at
the northern end of the courtyard. Search
will be made. Major Cavagnari'a visiting
diary has been found at the ameer's palace.
London, October 14. The Daily News
says: "It gold continues to leave England
and France, as it has lately, it will soon be
come necessary to consider the possibility of
a measure to stop the outflow. It will be
time for England to consider what action to
take when the French authorities make the
move by directly or indirectly raising the
premium on gold to such a point that the
whole of the United States 's demand is thrown
on this country."
Constantinople, October 14. There are
great apprehensions of serious disturbance
during the coming winter. The prevalence
of robbery and murder at present is consid
erable. Many arrests have been made here
to-day, but nothing is known ot the causes.
London, October 14. There is good rea
son to believe that Lord Derby will soon
openly affiliate with the liberal party.
Are These People Abaiedl
New York Herald: "Elsewhere we print a
communication whose signature will be re
cognized as that of one of the foremost experts
in the cotton trade in this country. The
writer, Mr. Edward Atkinson, of Boston,
points out the remarkable facts that the cot
ton crop of the current year was the largest
ever raised in the south; that the ten crops
of 1870-79, both years included, were nearly
six and a halt million bales greater than the
ten crops of 1852-61, the largest ever raised
by slave labor; and that the increase is pro-
gressive, the last five crops being nearly four
million bales greater than the last five crops
before the war. He remarks that as the
negroes supplied almost all the labor which
planted, tended and saved theas -great crops,
southern white men ..ought, to see that this
labor, the cheapest and for its purposes the
best in the world, is a force they cannot ig-
i nore. lhe southern states cannot, he tninKs,
afford to (permit these colored laborers to be
abused or cheated. He is right; but we in
cline to go somewhat farther than he. It
seems to us that a population which produces
so constant -and so great a crop is not abused;
If the nearroes of the sooth were reallvin the
sad condition in which it pleases some of our
northern politicians to represent them, if they
were murdered, oppressed, robbed and cheat
ed everywhere, it is not possible that they
would produce now a greater cotton crop
than the . largest under slavery: that
the crop should be increasing steadily
year by year, and that, besides tne cot
ton, tbev should . woduce also. . as- they
do, a larger amount than ever before of their
own food supplies. In short, the statistics
which Mr. Atkinson sends us go very far to
disprove the accusations brought against the
south of general oppression and abuse of the
blacks. We do ; not, ot course, doubt mat
there are instances, probably numerous cases,
in which the negro cultivator is cheated, or
robbed, or unjustly dealtrwith. .Northern
papers are lull of complaints of northern and
white laborers who are also wronged, of ten
in ways which it is difficult to prevent, and
the ignorance and, more than that, the
wasteful and unthrifty habits-of the southern
negro expose him peculiarly to become the
prey of sharpers. But in the fact of the im
mense and continually and steadily increas
ing cotton crop it is nonsense to assert that
there is general terrorism, oppression" or
cheating of the blacks. We advise the Re
publicans togive np that point in their ar
gument. But we advise the southern whites
also to pass laws for the more stringent pro
tection ot tbe black laborers against men
who cheat them out of their earnings.? If
they neglect that they may some day see a
real exodus of the blacks, which would : be a
very embarrassing event for them." 1

Washington, October 12 The postmaster-general's
estimates, now being prepared
for the next focal year, will show a very
heavy increase over last year. The total es
timates will reach nearly . forty million dol
lars. This is largely accounted for by the
tremendous growth of the western States and
Territories, which has required a very great
increase in new routes and postoffices. Judge
Key says that the estimates will be trimmed
down to the very lowest possible figure, but
they will still be so large that congress will,
no doubt, be startled. In this department,
however, there is litttle chance of. cutting ex
penses, unless congress should conclude to
reduce salaries of postmasters and rates of
transportation on railroads, which are among
the largest interests. The postmaster-general
will show that the (unprecedented growth of
tbe west and northwest is the chief cause of
the increased estimates.

A. Defrauded JPreaeher. ,
Georgia Enquirer: "A colored preacher
traveled from Social Circle to Conyers, Geor
gia, to preach the other day. After he had
finished his sermon he asked for a contribu
tion from the brethren to carry him back
home. He raised ninety-five cents, but one
dollar was required to pay his fare on the
cars, and he asked for the other nickel. A
colored brother promptly responded and
handed him a one dollar bill and took his
ninety-five cents in nickels. Fancy the
preacher's surprise and mortification when he
presented the "bill to the- ticket agent and
was told that it was counterfeit."
A Centenarian aad her Boa.
' . Boston Journal: "An event of pleasant in
terest occurred in Topsfield yesterday in the
private celebration of the centennial birthday
of an estimable lady resident, Mrs. K'.oibaU,
the giandmother of Harriet M'Ewen, Kim
ball, the poetess. The occasion brought to
tbe town Dr. David Kimball, a respected
citizen of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, son
of tbe former lady and father of the latter.
Dr. Kimball is eighty years of age. The pres
ence of an octogenarian at the centenary of
his mother was so rare an occurrence that
the fact is worthy of mention." .

Special to the Cincinnati Kriqulrer.J
Downs. Kansas, October 13. A messen
ger from Bull's City, twenty miles west, an
nounces the tragic death of General H. C
Bull and two other men. Robert Bricknell
and George Nicholas, and tbe wounding of
another. Bricknell and Nicholas were em
ployes of General Bull. 'The general has a
park fitted np at great expense, and "has in
closed therein a number of wild animals, in
eluding three elk, one a powerful, huge, ant-
lered male. The general was accustomed to
walk through this mclosure daily, and bun
dreds of visitors have at different times been
shown through the place. At about
seven o'clock yesterday morning Brick'
nell entered the park to care for the ani
mats. He immediately discovered an unusual
appearance about the large elk, which showed
hostile signs, compelling him to retire from
the park. Bricknell hastened to inform the
general ot the fact, and arming themselves
with heavy clubs both went to the park, the
general remarking he could subdue the ani
mal. Without a sign of warning the now
infuriated beast dashed at the men, striking
General Bull and knocking him down. The
elk then drew back and attacked the general
with increased force, using his antlers with
terrible effect, piercing the prostrate body of
the general through the breast until the
prong protruded, then tossing his form high
in the air 'and over his head. The elk then
resumed tbe attack on Bricknell. inflicting
terrible injuries. Here George Nicholas, who
had witnessed the occurrence, ran to the
rescue with a heavy club, hoping to disable
the' animal and compel it to desist. He
was rolled npon the ground, and then
tossed npon the fence by the elk. At this
time William Sherman, with courage, has
tened to the rescue, but was caught on the
immense antlers and thrown over the fence.
Mrs. Bull was meanwhile a horrified specta
tor of the terrible tragedy, and, wild with
grief and horror, ran to the town for help.
number of men hastened to the scene of the
disaster, but too late lor service. They found
the general in a badly-diengured condition
and life auite extinct. His body, with the in
jured men, was conveyed to the family resi
dence and surgical aid summoned, a sur
gical examination of General Bull showed
forty-four wounds of greater or less severity
The general was killed by a wound from
the antler, which entered the chest at the
right nipple, passing diagonally through
the body, and coming out on the fete side,
about the fifth rib. The prong passed through
both lungs, and probably the heart, causing
instant death. Robert Bricknell received
thirty-two wounds, and George Nicholas re
ceived sixty-four wounds, lhe eltrhas with
much danger been secured, but as a captive
still paws and stamps the earth with great
fury. He is unusually large, weighing nine
hundred pounds. At no time has an even
occurred which caused such a general shock
throughout northwestern Kansas in tact,
throughout tbe whole State. The news will
be received with more than ordinary regret,
as he was a man widely known and univer
sally esteemed.
Aa Unfortunate mistake.
Globe-Democrat Special.
New York, October 12. Benjamin C.
Clarke, a lawyer practicing in this city, but
living in New Rochelle, was roused at one
o clock Sunday morning by bis wife, who
thought she beard burglars in the house.
Clarke took a revolver, and, going to the rear
hall entrance, found it open and some one
pushing the door frnu without. - Giving due
warning, and receiving no reply, he fired
twice. He found he had shot and killed bis
nncle, Joseph D. Barker: Deceased was a
highly respected resident of. New Rochelle,
aged seventy-five years. ' He was a brother
of James W. Barker, who was the ' Know?
Nothing candidate in opposition to Fernando
Wood when he ran for mayor of New York
some twenty years ago. Another brother is
Stephen H. Barker, of Tuckahoe, where he
has a rubber factory. ' He also carried on the
wholesale and retail dry goods trade at Lou
isville. ' Deceased for Borne years was in the
shoe business in this city. It Jias been the
habit of Mr. Barker, whenever J he went out
of the house at night- to answer the calls ot
nature, to call Mr. Ularke to accompany mm,
but it is believed on this occasion ha wished
to spare his nephew the trouble, so he went
by himself in his night clothes. - It is. also
conjectured that he was ashamed ef being
found in the condition he was on the piazza.
and,- consequently. ' did not answer his
nephew's challenge. Tbe coroner's jury has
exonerated Clarke.

Columbus. October 15. Since noon re
turns received by the Republican State com
mittee show that in addition to the list of
senators sent at noon, the Republicans have
elected sinks in the third district and Mounts
in the second, but they admit the defeat
of Chambers in the fifteenth district. This
gives thd-Repnblicans twenty-three senators
and sixty-seven representatives, or thirteen
majority on joint ballot. The Democrats do
not concede as large a majority as this, and
it may take the full official vote to . decide
what the exact majority in the legislature
will be. The returns which have been com
ing in this evening are largely from Demo
cratic strongholds, which materially reduce
Foster's majority. General Robinson, chair-
main ot the Ke publican state committee,
says he is satisfied that roster majority
will fall below twenty thousand.
Later lhe ttepubucan committee are
now notifying their correspondents that Fos
ter's majority will probably fall as low as
seventeen thousand.
Cincinnati. October 15. The Hamilton
county offices were all carried by the Repub

Special to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Pagoli, Intx, October 13. The boiler, a
tubular portable one, of Hiram Benham's
sawmill, in Johnson township, Crawford
county, Indiana, exploded Friday afternoon
and killed four men and "wounded seven
others. The engineer, Jonathan Bruce, was
blown about one hundred yards, against and
through a strong rail-fence, and was crushed
out of all semblance of humanity. James
Peterson, another of the killed, was thrown
forty yards against a barn, and had both legs
and both arms broken, and was terribly
scalded. Samuel Wright, a little boy living
in the vicinity, who had been sent to the mill
to borrow an auger, was also killed. I did
not get the name of the fourth man killed,
nor of the wounded, except the owner,
Hiram Benham, who is dangerously injured.
as is the other six. The mill had been run
ning day and night, and at the time of the
explosion was running under a pressure of
one hundred and twenty-eight pounds of
steam. The boiler, engine and mill building
were" blown to atoms. Mr. Benham is a
brother of the sheriff of Crawford county.
