Thioe tickets will be good for a week, and those who desire to speud all tbu time possible in Washington or the cast, the saving of a half day's time on the journey becomes a question of no or dinary concern. The fact that the -noted "Iaisy Train" over the Baltimore and Ohio, which leaves this city in the evening, arrives in Washington seven hours ahead of the fastest trains on other lines, is very generally knowu, and those who have any question as to this being a plain statement of fact should compare the time-tables of the Baltimore and Ohio with those of rival lines.' The Baltimore and Ohio was the first railroad constructed from Washington to the Ohio river, and there connecting for Cincinnati, and it remains to-day the only road from Cincinnati and the west to the national capi tal on a direct line. The trains on rival roads are forced to take circuitous routes to get into Washington, which, as a matter of course, requires extra travel and time. Not Only does the "Daisy Train" reach Washing ton seven hours ahead of trains on all other roads, but it gets in in the middle of the day, instead of iu the night, as the trains on other lines dp. To those who desire to get comfortably fixed in their quarters bydav- lieht (and who does not)? this advantage is one that cannot Hgsibly lie equaled. Mat ters nave been so arranged on tne cammore nd Ohio that extra sections of the Daisy Train" will be run, one immediately after the other, so that the time of arrival io Washington will be practically the same. Much new equipment has .becu provided, and every means have been taken by the Baltimore and Ohio tompany to insure most comfortable journeying and prompt arrival on schedule time.

The prelim inary examination of the alleged murderers of Samuel Armstrong was not commenced at London, as expected, to-day, but the case was given to a grand jury specially impan eled to consider the case. It is probably quite fortunate for the accused that this course was adopted, owing to the intense feeling against the accused. A Hhoeklna; Murder in Kentucky. Somerset, February 22. On Saturday Harnev Russell started from a spelling-match to attend a speaking at some distance. Not returning at the proper time, search was made, and he was found by the roadside, stabbed in twenty-two places and his skull crushed. His money, amounting to $150, watch and other articles were missing. Five men were arrested who were seen with him shortly after the spelling-match, but only circumstantial evidence points to them aa the guilty parties.

A LIFETIME' AT SEA And Never in a storm-Nincnlar Expe rience of a Nteamshln Captain. New York Tribune: "Going on board the steamship City of Washington immediately after her arrival from Havana last W ednes- day, when nearly every vessel arriving in port wag reporting more or less damage from heavy weather, or Iron) collisions in the pre vailing fogs, a reporter of the Tribunt met Captain Louis F. Timmerman and asked of him a few extracts from the log. To the sur prise of the reporter Captain Timmerman re plied: 'The voyage has been a pleasant one, and yet I have never seen much rougher weather.' The apparent inconsistency in the captain s statement led the reporter to further inquiries, and he replied: 'I first began mv seafaring life in 1S48; I have sailed in four ships, a bark, a brig, a schooner and thirty-three steamers of various dimen sions and speed; I have visited every port of importance in the world, excepting those in Australia and the .Mediterranean, and nave had the singular rood fortune of never hav ing my vessel injured to the extent of twenty dollars through Dad weather. ' Indeed, I sup pose I have yet to see a real storui at sea, Mv nrst experience was as a bov on the steam ship Oregon, one of the first vessels of the 1'Ot ririe Mail comoanv. The first box of ?old ever sent from California, aa a regular ship ment, was handled by me on the Oregon, aa was also the first bag of mail from the east. Once I abandoned the ?a and went into journalism iu Sau Franei-eo. When the war broke out I was appointed master in the vol unteer navy, and was ordered to duty in the Pacific squadron, where inactive, in a fight- The Xew York llerald. of the I8 J1. has the following special cable dispatch from London, regarding the reception of Edwin Booth in England; Booth has achieved an other marked success in King Lear. The critics, who at first were cold and sevtre, are now almost unsparing in their praise. Cire.it curiosity is aroused as to his acting in every new character in whu h lie appears. The itiU MtiU UaseUe last night said : "So English-speaking actor is master of a method so fine as that of Booth. This fact was never shown more clearly and indisputably than in the later scenes of A1117 Lar. these were exquisitely touching. By admirably subtle traits the influence ol old associations upon the brain were indicated. The light of thought and observation was fitfully revealed by means of . I acuities too weak to transmit a consecutive message, and wild and incoherent fancies interrupted the records of past experience. Jn pathos the scene was narrowing, rroui this point the art of the actor triumphed oyer all oljstacles. In the delivery ot the lines commencing 'Fray do not mock me,' the culminating point ot the perlormance was readied, and the audience was lairjy carried away by en thusiasm.' The Saturday Reviev says: "Booth's 'King Lear' thus far surpasses any performance which he has given to a london audience, It is true there is no stnele nualitv disolaved in it of the possession of which he has not be fore given evidence, but on no former occa sion has so much beep demanded of him at once! On no former occasion has his genius been so unflirgging. The word 'genius' is one against the too bounteous use of wbicn we have otten pro tested, there are tew words winch lose their value more by being scattered broad cast. If wc had hesitated to apply it to Booth's acting before he had appeared as 'Otheilo' and 'King Ixar,' we should have hesitated no longer after he had done so. In his rendering of both characters there was apparent that native sense of grandeur and poetry which not even the highest talent can achieve, but a combination of whicli with all that the highest talent can ac quire in the direction of art and artifice may certainly be said to deserve the name of genius." Mr. Booth will leave the Princess theater about the mid dle of March, as every one who has witnessed hi:- difficulties there will be glad to learn. With a bad manairer and villainous suonort and an out-of-the-way theater, Mr. Booth has struggled against everv element that could 1 , 4 11 1 1; assist laiiure. ah iuh success is 111s own. lie will probably play 'King Lear to the end of the season and will then take a rest. lie will afterward play at some better theater, under a better manager and with better support."

Walker Ames has entered a plea of guilty to the charge of kidaapying, and has confessed that he enticed a small boy named Adolphus Williams from his home, 302 Bright street, Indianapolis, and started on foot with him toward this place. They walked sixteen miles the first day, when the boy's feet be came sore. Ames took a rope, made a cat-o'-niue tails, and lashed the boy to make him walk on. lie whipped the boy. until he nearly tainted. They walked on to Rich mond, begging as they went, the boy being forbidden on pain of death to make any com plaint. At this pi ce he took another little boy named Kattliffe and started on toward Pittsburg, compelling the boys to walk over the frozen roads, and beating tham unmerci fully whenever they complained. They had reached Troy, Ohio, when they were over taken by patties from here and brought back. Ames says he intended to take the boys to llarrisburg, Pennsylvania, to his mother, and have her raise them. He 1b a light-colored mulatto, very tall and slight, and says that he was porter in a disreputa ble saloon in Chicago during the winter. ACROSS THE COXTEVEN X What is Thought of Actors. Mrs. John Drew, a lady who has as many friends off as on the stage, and who haa had a lifetime experience in the theatri cal profession, is quoted aa saying that on the stage "people are all verv well paid and very careful of what they do, and none of those marvelously funny, queer things hap pen that happened forty or fifty years ago. There is, I think, rather leas genius on the stage, but there is more good conduct. Those men who used to be very funny and very er ratic men who used to get intoxicated here and get intoxicated there, and ef whom peo ple thought how clever they would be if they did not drink scarcely anybody of that character is on the stage at all now."

The Atlanta Confif.'fi'on,'discussing the pos- 1 sibililies of southern literature,says truly that "if the suth is ever to make any permanent or important contribution to the literature of Jhe world, we must get over our self-consciousness and so control our sensitiveness as to be able to regard with indifference nay, with complacence the impulse of criticism which prompts and spurs every literary man and woman whose work is genuine. We must not forget that real literary art is abso lutely impartial and invariably just. 'one other can endure." An Accident on the Houston and Texas - Central Railroad. Galveston, February 22.

Letter to the Chicago lima: "There have been many rumors about the terminus of the Southern Pacific, and the probability of forming a junction with tbe Atchison, To ptka and Santa Fe. 1 Paso del Norte, the Mexican city, was spoken of once as the great railroad center. It contaius about 7000 people, and is a typical Mexican city, with out enterprise, tilled with the pride of ignorance, acornful of all the work of the Americanox, jealous of very encroachment upon the tiuie-nou-ored customs of centuries. Kl Paso in Texas, known on the maps as Fort Bliss, and Frank lin, ia a straggling town ot Irom 1UUU to low inhabitants. The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe will no doubt pass by the American town and make its depot in the Spanish city of Kl Paso, but it is given out from good au thority that the (southern Paciuc will estab lish its junction at the plaza of 1 Paso in Texas, if the inhabitants so will it. Nego tiations are still pending for depot grounds. Last week the connecting point of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad with the Southern Pacific was fixed at a point eleven miles west of Deming. It is expected that connections will be made on March 10th. Concerning the further ex tension of the road to the gulf, President Crocker, in a recent interview, said : 'The eastern terminus of the road has been defi nitely fixed at New Orleans, where a line of steamers will make connections for Europe. If we maka connections with any road it will be with the Tom Pierce road, starting from Galveston and running to San Antonio, Texas. The present plan is to follow southeastward along the Rio Grande to a point in the southwestern corner of El Paso county, Texas, and from there to strike straight across Texas. The distance to San Antonio is five hundred miles. Work can be done and trains run ning by the close of 1881.' f his is a rather sanguine prophecy, but if work is carried on at both ends, from El Paso aud Eastland, TexaB, there is little doubt that another year will see the completion of the work.
