Somi correspondent writes of Senator Joe Brows, ot Georgia, that he was twenty years old before he learned to read. At thirty tiree he wis elected to a jndgeship, and at thirty-eeven he became Governor. He is now sixty, a United States Senator, and might some day be President, but for the geograph ical location of his home and his politics. To this last proposition the Augusta Cfa-oa-icU responds that his chances are better than those of Arthur were a year ago. Father Rtax, beside his spiritual work as priest of a parish in the diocese of Xatchez, has, as we learn from the Mobile Register, been baaily occupied in the comple tion of three different Tolumes, one of them a month oi May book, entitled Our Queen's Judy Crcnm. He has aLo become a regular contributor to the Sunny South, of Atlant the Catk..iic Mirror, of Baltimore, to Dono hoc'i Magazine, of Boston, and to the New Orleans Sunday Fieayxnc. This is sorely un dertaking much, but those who know Father Kyan's capacity for work will realize that all will be accomplished, and that well.

LITTLE C0RKUILL Catches It on All Sides Guiteau and the Witness, Dr. Spltzta, Completely Demoralize the Fellow. A Sew York Horse Doctor Sajs the PrlS' oner Is Insane, an Opinion in Which but Few Will Concur. THE JAXCAKT ZLKCTIOSSk Since the incorporation of Memphis, over tilty years ago, its government has never been so wisely, economically and satisfactor ily administered as it has been during the past two years nnder the management of the Legislative Council, created by the law which established the Taxing-District. With out credit, without money, interminable difficulties and many ombarrasanients to en counter, the Police and f ire Commissioners and Board of Public Worli have made won derf ul improvements. T'ie Fire Department has been efficient, law and order has been maintained by a vigilant police force, streets have been 'paved, and it may be truthfully said that more has been done for the pros perity of Memphis during the past two years than was accomplished dur ing any proceeding five or ten years. To perpetuate this government is the earnest desire of every good citizen. A few weeks since there was much apprehension as to the result of the January elections, as the pothouse politicians, ward bummers and chronic office-seekers were comparing notes, with the view of electing a fusion ticket, which had for its sole object a division of the spoils instead of the general prosperity of the city. But a reaction has taken place. The people are aroused and are determined to ignore politics and elect men who will continue the good work already begun. The names suggested for Police and Fire Com missioners, and Board of Public Works, at an informal meeting of a few citizens on Saturday last, is regarded with some favor by the people. Many, however, express the opinion that the old members, who have done so much for the city by a faith ful discharge of their duties, should all be re-elected. This cannot be done, as we un derstand thoHe of them not placed upon the ticket referred to have refused te scive. The Appeai. has no candi date, no ticket to present, but will cordially unite in Bupport of any good ticket presented by the people. It has been suggested that the Democrats place a par tizan ticket in the field. Such has heretofore Ken the custom in electing a Mayor of Mem phis. But the government of the Taxing Diatrict was elected by the people of Mem phis without reference to party prejudices and the interposition of party conventions, and it rule has been so successful and satis factory that it should bo perpetuated by a combination of all good citizens without re gard to politics. Occasionally a crisis ar rives in the hixlory of a city when there should be a complete separation f local and national politics, and the people of Memphis are in the midst of such a crisis. In larger cities it often happens that the necessity of maintaining party ascend ency is made the excuse for tolerating mu nicipal nongovernment. Such a policy has oecome so Irequent that those who are only concerned for the public welfare find it diffi cult to maintain their confidence in either party, and grow more an J more dixposed to act independently of both. There is scarcely a city of any importance in tho country which has not furnished at some time an illustration of what is sure to happen when, for any considerable period, public interests are sacrificed for patty. Philadelphia has lately afforded a conspicuous instance of the swiftness aud certainty where revolutions of public sentiment follow upon the abuse of political power. In this case it was a Kepublican administration that felt the wrath of the people. iust as Democratic rule of Tweed December 12. The first ; h Cniteau case to-day was Dr. Edward Charles Spitzka, of New York. Witness had made the study of nervous and mental diseases a specialty, and had been iiorl tr. loniifv as an expert about twenty- five times; witness examined the prisoner in ;;) THtndiT and was satined he is in sane; witness considered the main features of ihe prisoner's case to be a tendency to the formation of delusive opinions and marked projects, and a strong indication ot lmoe cility of jndgment. "And while," said the witness, '"I have no other evidence than the .mrminn of his face. I should have no doubt that he is a moral imbecile or a moral monstrosity." Scoville then read the witness a hypotheti cal question, and asked if, in his (the wit ness) opinion, the prisoner was sane or in me on the 2d of Julv. The witness declined to answer any hypo thetical questions in cases where be bad made a personal examination. The witness considered the prisoner insane when he ex amined him. lie - believed ne must nave been in a more or less morbid mental state throughout his life, and that he was prob ablr insane on the 2d of July. The cross-examination was quite pointedly directed to witness's practice and standing as an expert, and inquiries were made as to witness's position as a professor at the veter inary school. Scoville objected to tne question as not pertinent. Davidge replied that the attainments of this witness have been paraded by the coun sel on the other side, and we think it de cidedly pertinent to this case to discover what opportunities for professional acquire ments the witness has enjoyed. Scoville noted an exception. Witness said he had no reason to feel ashamed of his sphere of duty in that connection. Davidge i es, rmt yonr treatment at that time must have been confined mostly to horses, and these gentlemen, then, are what are known as horse doctors, are they not?" The witness (reddening and with some excitement) My treatment has been con fined to asses. hen an ass with two legs asks me a stupid question I endeavor to treat him as he deserves. General laughter.! The witness stated that he visited the jail under the assumed name of Prof. Brown, the phrenologist, tie desired to talk with the prisoner unawares, and so pretended to make a physiological examination. The witness was asked it the prisoner was able to distinguish between right and wrong, and declined to express an opinion as to his moral responsibility, bu'. from his examina tion of the prisoner he was of opinion that since he (the prisoner) has been a lawyer he has always known the ordinary legal conse quences of criminal acts. Guiteau (interrupting) I haven't been a lawyer for five years. Judge, be said hen 1 was a lawyer; you see that aon t help vou any. Judge, ask him if I was re sponsible for my actions on the 2d of July. Witness would not undertake to express a decided opinion as to the mental condition of the prisoner on Julv 2d. ' Guiteau There was no depravity about this business, and I think it is a uurniug Bhame for the gentlemen of the prosecution to harp upon that word, "depravity." 1 have been a consistent Christian all my life, and because I committed adultery to get rid of a woman I did not love, and owe a few hun dred dollars, it is a burning shame for this prosecution to blacken my character. Despite . cries of "silence" and ''order," Guiteau continued to strike upon the table and shriek out at the top of his voice, "I am not afraid to go to the gallows if the Lord Almighty wishes me to go there. I expect an act of God that will blow this court and jury out of . the window to protect me if nec eteary, I want to thunder this in the ears of the American people." :.- , Mr. Daridge (with an air of disgust) Oh, this pantomime- business is getting played out. Guiteau Ton are getting played out, and your tneory oi prosecution, too. - Ihe court took recess. children entered the house and viewed the remains. Many prominent citizens were present, including Generals Hancock, Sickles and Raff, Ex-Speaker Randall, Mayor King, and the city officials generally, George W. Childs, John Russell Young, A. K. McCInre, and many other wel-lknown journalists. The interment took place in West Laurel Hill Cemetery. The newspaper publishers and editors passed resolutions of condolence with the family, ana attended tne iunerai in body. CHILI AND PERU. THE UTBR1DS.

In the elec tion of the Legislative Council, two years ago, politics were ignored, and we have had a safe and successful administration of the city government. Disregarding tho right of any political party or faction to dictate the policy and to claim reward for party services, the city officials have been influenced solely by what they conceived to be the true inter est of the public. It is wise to let well enough alone. We want no fierce political campaign in January next. Men should be elected on their business merits, without in curring obligations in a political canvass, the discharge of which would be a burden in the performance of their official duties. A good ticket should be selected and unani mously elected. The names suggested at the informal meeting on Saturday is composed of gentlemen of ability and exerience, and if accepted by the people aud elected by a unanimous vote would, no doubt, be sensible of the great responsibility which a compli ment so unusual would impose upon them. Men would be less than human who, under such circumstances, would not respond with teal and alacrity to the public demand for good government. But in this canvass the motto of the ArPEAL is, "Nothing for men everything for good government and th prosperity of If staph!, J Evening Session.

Un the 2d of July, when I was impelled to take the Weol the President" Some one in the audience cried out. "Shoot him now." Cries of "Order." from the bailiffs, re duced the audience to quiet, and Dr. Spitzka again took the stand. The witness concluded, from the shape of the face and head, and de fective innovation of facial muscles, and from the pronounced deviation of the tongue to the Jeft, that the prisoner was born with an unequal development of brain; that his insanity was congenital. Witness described with grant particularitr the Decnliaritiai of the head-formation which he bad detected in the prisoner a case, lie thoueht-in the pris oner's case, the inequality in the two sides of tne neaa was tnree times greater than m the normal heads. Inequality could be taken as an indication of moral imbecility only in proportion to its degree. Witness contin ued: "If I had only that man's (oointinir at uuiteau) mean lace to judge by, I would say he was a depraved man, or an insane man, but, introducing other factors, uneaual formation of head, unequality of facial ex pression, and deviation ot tongue, 1 am of the opinion that the trouble is of congenital origin. The closest attention was paid bv Guitesn to tne evidence ot tins witness, and his satis faction was plainly indicated by the expres sion of his countenance. The witness, becoming weary, was allowed to sit down, but Corkhill insisted on his standing up, as he could not see or hear him, v ltness stood up. saving it was a trivial matter whether Corkhill could (see or hear mm. Guiteau was immensely amused at his re tort, and with a chuckle, said, "He's a bad man for you, Corkhill; we have got some more oi them, loo. ihe witness, upon talking with the pris oner, found he based his conclusions upon insane and improbable assumptions, but granting nis assumptions to be true, his con tusions were luetcal. Ihe cross-examination was conducted with the evident purpose of discrediting the di rect testimony, out Hpiizka was more than match for his questions. Corkhill sharply Questioned the witness in regttrd to the article he contributed to the Maltrvl Journal. A spicy colloquy followed, which Guiteau interrupted by shouting, "It seems to cause you considerable trouble; yon had better cool oil', Corkhill; I haven't seen you heated so before; it's 3 o'clock; we had belter ko nonie. Witness was asked if he had not appeared as an expert in certain cases and, after taking a fee ou one side, returned it. and took a larger one from the other side. Witness replied with considerable warmth You have no basis for such a question, and a man dares to mane an assertion upon men ne could iound il. Utu ten a agaiu interrupted in a great raire, nd in a voice which completely drowned tue utterances ot counsel and witness, veiled out: "Thai's a verv dirty question for you to kjk, vortmni, u- just suns your oraiu; 1 ui going (o ask Arthur to kick you out of this case.

The official dispatches containing the instructions given Ministers to Peru and Chili last summer are furnished by the Secretary of State with the approval of the president. Un May um Secretary Blaine wrote Minister Christiancy at Lima: "If the Calderon Government is supported by the character and intelligence of Peru, and is really endeavoring to restore a constitutional government, wun a view both to domestic order and negotiation with Chili for peace, you may recognize it as the existing provisional government, and render what aid yov can by advice aud good offices to that end. On June 15th. Secretary Blaine, in a dis patch to Minister Hurlbut, said: "Judging from the most recent dispatches from our ministers, you will probably find on the part oi the Chilian authorities in possession oi Pern a willingness to facilitate the establish ment of a Provisional Government, which has been attempt, d by Senor Caldron. . If so, you will do all you properly can to en courage the Peruvians to accept any reason able conditions and limitations with which this concession may be accompanied. The Peruvians are certainly aware of the sympa thy and interest of the people of the United Slates, and will, I feel confident, be prepared to give your representations the consideratios to which the friendly anxiety of this Gov ernment entitles them. As far as the influence of the United States will eo in Chili it will be exerted to induce the Chilian government to consent that the question of the cession of territory should be the subject of negotiation and not a condition precedent upon which alone negotiations shall commence. If, upon a full knowledge of the condition of Peru. you can inform this Government that Peru can devise and carry into practical effect a plan by which Chili can be met without sacrificing the integrity of Peruvian terri tory, the Government of the United States would be willing to tender its offices toward the execution of such a project.', Secretary Blaine also, on Jim; 15th. ad dress, d a note to Minister Kilpatrick, at Santiago, Chili, saying: "I am sure the Cuilian government will appreciate the na ture ot tne deep interest which the United States feels in the termination of a condition so calamitous in its consequences to the best interests of all the South American republics. It should also know that if at any time the interposition of the good offices of this Gov ernment can contribute to the restoration of friendly relations between the belligerent powers, they will, on proper information, be promptly offered. At this day, when the right of the people to govern themselves the fundamental basis of republican institu tionsis so widely recognized, there is nothing more difficult or more dangeious man a lorced transfer ot territory carrying with it an indignant and hostile population, and nothing but necessity, proven before the world, can justify it. It is not a case in which the power deeiriug the territory can be accepted as a Bate or im partial judge. While (he United States Government does nut pretend to express au opinion wnemer or not annexation oi li territory is necessary in consequence of th war, it believes it would be more honorable to the Chilian government, more conducive to tne security ot permanent peace, an more in consonance with the principles which are professed by all the republics of Amer ica, that such territorial changes should avoided as far as possible, that they should never ne the result ot mere force, but if necessary should be decided and tempered by a full and equal discussion between all the powers whose people and whose national interests are in volved. An effort, and apparently a verv earnest one, has been made to create a pro visional government which shall gradually restore order and the reign of law, but it is obvious that for such a government to suc ceed in obtaining the confidence either of its own people or foreign powe.s, it must be lowed freedom and force of action, which cannot be exercised while Chili holds abso lute possession and governs by military au thority. This Government, "therelore. hai been glad to hear from its minister in Chili, whom you succeed, that the Chilian authori ties have decided to give their support to the efforts of Calderon to establish on a steady looting a provisional government in "eru. You will, as far as you can with propriety and without officious intrusion, approve and encourage this disposition on the part of the Chilian government, and this department win oe exceedingly gratified it your influ ence, as representative of the United States, snail be instrumental in inducing the gov ernment of Chili to give its aid and supiort to the restoration of a regular constitutional government in Peru, and to postpone the settlement of all questions of territorial an nexation to diplomatic Decollations whiph can then be resumed with the certaintv of a just, friendly and satisfactory conclmion. in nnj representation which you may make juu win Bay mai me nope ot the United States is that negotiations for peace hall be conducted and a final settlement between the two countries determined with out either side inviting the aid or interven tion of any European power. The United States seeks only to perform the office of irienu to an parties in this unhappy conflict between the South American republics, and it will regret to be compelled to consider how far that fceliug might be affected and more active interposition forced upon it by any attempted complication of this question with European politics.

"I shall never go into a Democratic caucus again," said .Representative Emory Speer, of Georgia. "Last season one of the leading Democrats in the Georgia delega tion accused me of being recreant to my party fealty. That will never be said again, be cause I shall never bo bound by party fealty. I think I know enough about myself, my district and country to act intelligently in every question that comes before me. I do not think I need the instructions of a cancus. Again and again I have differed with the Democratic caucus, and acted on my honest opinion. My constituents have approved that which my conscience dictated, and by their votes have said that as their represen tative I was right and the Democratic caucus wrong. A majority of 250 in 1878 became a majority of 4000 in 1880 in the strongest Democratic district in the State, a district which gave Hancock 10,000 majority. What better indorsement could I desire? It proved me right and the Democratic caucus wrong, and encouraged me to be more independent than ever." "Is the independent movement in Georgia an organized movement as yet?" "It is not now, but it may be in the near future. So far the movement against the ultra-partisans of the Democratic party in Georgia hss been in the nature of guerrilla warfare. The young men of the State, and some of the old men, grew weary of the methods of the managers of the Democratic party. They were tired, for one th.ng, of being kept down. They thought that these political issues were dead, and ought to be buried. They wanted a chance to march forward in accord with the new order of things, industrial and social, in the South They exerted their strength, thus far com paratively unknown, and soon made it a recognized factor in politics. They sent Ste phens and Felton and me to Congress. Each man, however, ran in his own way, and without organisation. Ktn..i.nu old and tried, sure of his hold on the people, anuounced himself as a candidate for Con gress, snapping his fingers at the party cau cus and party bosses. Having been defied bv him they promptly nominate.! him fr.r tho office to which he aspired. Thereunon he gracefully accepted, not the nomination, but wnai ne termed the 'indorsement' of the men he had been denouncing as 'thimble-riggers' and 'caucus-packers.' Of course, beinir a young man, he had to fight without regard to the commendation or the recommendation of the Democratic Convention. In 1877 its nominee beat me. In 1878 I beal him, and in 1880 I buried him under a majority of 4000 votes." "W?hen is your next election?" "Next year.when we elect a full State ticket, besides Congressmen. Whether there will be an organized independent movement in J Georgia by that time, with a State ticket in i the field, or not, I do not know. I think it ' will come about." "Of course, Mr. Speer, such an organized, independent movement against the Bourbons must, to be successful, include the .Republi cans of Georgia?" "Yes, and that is just where the difficulty iico. iucuiici oostacie in tne way ot the lorniation ot an independent party, which snail win on a platform etnbodviD? tlm lih. eral principles of the Georgians of to-day, is me mass oi omce-nolding JKepublicans, There are 80,000 Kepublican voters in Genr. gia.

Liberal principles will win in Georgia someday, bu it will not be through a victory of the Re publican party. That party in Georgia is a sectional party distinctively.

"What do you think of Presidtnt Ar thur's first message?" asked a Tribune corre spondent of representative Atkins, f Ten nessee, to-day. "I have not read the whole of it, hot as far as I have read 1 have found it t lucid, modest, statesmanlike document. I was greatly pleased to find that Grant bad not been able to give it a bloody-shirt cut, as I feared he would do. I begin to thiak that Arthur means to be President himsell and of the whole country." "What do you think of his recommenda tions respecting the tariff and finances' ' "Oh, of course, I do not agree with him there. I am for a tariff for revenue only, and cutting down the duty on every article until the blood is drawn. 'No protection' is my motto, lhen 1 am lor the unlimited coinage of silver and the abolition of the National banking system." "What about the question of polygtmy?" I think 1 am with the President there, at least so far as making a polygamous wife a competent witness against her polygamous husband is concerned. That is all Congress can do, and I am in favor ot it. 1 am also greatly pleased with the President's position respecting the improvement ot the Missis sippi river. We ought to make the most of all our waterways. I regret to find," con tinued Mr. Atkins, ' that the President did not take bold, high ground against railroad monopolies and in favor of regulating trans portation rates by law. "What will or ought to be, in your opin ion, the policy of the Demoeiats in Congress this session asked the correspondent. "We ought to (and I hope we will) go in for a modification ol tie taritl in the dircc tion I before suggested' for the abolition of the National banks and the unlimited coin age of silver; for liberal improvement and against monopolies of every sort. I do not know whether it will make any difference what we do. however continued the leu- nesee etatesuian, somiwhat plaintively: "for no matter what we a tempt, we seem fore ordained to defeat. Ye ought to stop our foolishness and stand by our principles, which are the eternal principles of truth and lustice, politically spetking. "You do not appear to agree with Senator voorhees in regard o what some ol them are say the tariff, for example?" suggested tne correspondent. "Of course I do not: nor will Banda 1 either. I did not giveaim my vote for the Speakership. Iain, not the same kind of a Democrat that he and tome others are." "What is the politicd outlook in Tennes see asked the correspondent. "Gloomy, gloomy for is," was the sad reply, "Will there be an elTirt to repeal the law passed last winter for tie settlement of the State debt?" "Undoubtedly there will. The success of the Read j nster movenvnt in Virginia has sadly demoralized the democratic parly in Tennessee. Thousands tf 'State credit' Dem ocrats are now in favor f repudiation or of scaling the debt. I ha-e hitherto stood for maintaining the faith aud credit of the State and paying every dollar ihe owes, but I con- less that 1 am now inclined to support a measure whicQ will be pmposed to scale the debt down to one-hail tbeorincipal and two- rhirds the interest in olhtr words, a propo sition to pay hlty per cent, ol the principal and four instead of six per n;ut. on that. "How does the Republican party ju Ten nessee regard that proposiun?" "Oh, they are opposed tc it. It will be the main issue in our Statt election next year." "Will the 'Slate credit' Democrats support it" "No; a great many of them will undoubt edly vote with the Republican! to preserve and execute the law passed last winter." "Which party will be likely tcwin?" "Oh, I suppose that, as usual, we ehall be beaten, ihe Democratic party, as I said before, seems doomed to defeat, no matter what it attempts." New York....

The figures, however, are most favorable when compared with those of the week before last, which stood at bl,lb:2,-2-o,l". Ihe percent age of increase this week, as compared with the corresponding week last year, amounts to a.b per cent., against a decrease ot 11.7 per cent, last week, and one of 14.4 per cent, the previous week. This shows that general business is increasing lust now in much great er ratio than at the corresponding period last year. In fact, it points to the existence of a widespread prosperity which reflects un erringly upon the general good character of .K. ..... ...-i In New York the percentage of increase is 1.2d against a decrease of lb.b last week, and 20.2 the previous week. Ibis, however, in dicates no marked increase in the amount of business, since exchanges in New York for the week endieg uecemoer, isau, were nearly 20 per cent, less than those of the previous week, with which a statement showing decrease of 16 per cent, is brought into com parison. Outside of New York clearings continue to show a gain in the percentage of increase it being 0.D per cent, against o.l per cent, last week, and z.s per cent, the pre vious week. In 1S80, during a correspond ing week in December, clearings in cities outside of New Yorkjshowed a gain of 12.9 per cent, ss compared with the corresponding weekmlsVJ. Among eastern cities Boston, which is the only city now below the line, and which has not fully recovered from the lingering e fleets of the Pacific Bank troubles, and where speculations are almost at stand-still, shows a decrease of 12.1 per cent. against b.b per cent. last week. Philadelphia, whose manufacturing inter ests continue in a high state of activity, shows a gain of 8.9 per cent., against 2.6 per cent. last week. Baltimore also shows a gain of 4.8 per cent., against 2.5 per cent, last week. There appears to be no change in the great activity among the manufacturing in dustries, and this is clearly reflected in the exchanges of the cities situated in our great manufacturing districts. In the oouth, where cotton is coming in more freely, Memphis and New Orleans have again lifted their heads above the line. A number of Western cities show great gains.

Yesterday, just .... . ...... ,.llr jm.u co uiie was wrapt in sueni-e, eight men congregated in a grove near by. The house is ahout four miles from Kingston, on Mr. WeJeker'i plantation, and situated some dis tance i mm nia dwelling. Two of these men entered the humble dwelling, seined the younger of the two sisters, a girl sixteen years old, and carried her Into the woods. Two others seized the other sister and carried her also into tho woods. The eight men ravished the younger of the two sisters and four of them violated the per- ovu ui iucwuwnsict. i aey went 10 tne dwell ing and set Are to it, and in a moment the whole building was in flames. The aged grandmother iwiwimwui, tvuiaeu a lew varus ana ieii insensi ble to the earth. She was found several hours later in a dying condition. The old lady knew one or two of the men, and as soon as she is able will identify them. If they can be arrested, no jury in the world cau fail to find them guilty. Should they be apprehended, there is strong probabUty tuey win never nave a cnance at a truu." ABOUT WOHX. Mips Mildred Lee, daughter of General R. R. Leo, ,is passing part of the winter in New York. Princes de Beanreau is dead. She wat a Polish woman, t'miutess Lutmilde de Komar, of great beauty. Her husband. Prince Charles de Boauveau, was considerably her senior. He died m ti. She liv6d chietlv for the poor. To them she gave time auu money. New York Mail: "Miss Clara Louise Kel logg writes to friends in this city that she will wad Mr. Whitaey next May, and will thenceforth re side in Europe. She has sold her property on the Hudson and iu Chicago. The gossips put her for tune in dollars and cents at fully f.U0,0uO. Dead huibands are worth more than lire ones in Texas. A Texas Jury gave a bereaved wniow Jlfi.uoj for damagas sustained by the taking off of her husband by a railway train. Inquiring male friends are anxious to know what she ia going to do with f 16.000 without a husband. Miss West, of G.Ieaburg, Illinois, is the Democratic candidate for Superintendent of Pub lic Instruction in the State, while Miss Raymond, of Bloomington. is the Republican candidata for the same position. Tho former Is said to be a Ilourbon and the latter a Stalwart of the strictest kind. The amenities of married life in Vincen nes, Indiana, are illustrated by tho following ad vertisement, which appeared in one of the paper of that city: "My wife Maria has straved or been stolen. Whoever returns her will get his head broken. As to trusting her, anybody can do so if they see fit; for as I never pay my own debts it's not liekly I'll pay her'n." Signer EtUire Barili, Adelina Patti's half brother and early instructor, says that he had plenty of difficulty with the young girl when teach ing her. "She was an obstinate little puss," he adds, "and often gave way to fits of passion. I used to lock her in a room and tell her that she could not have anything to eat until she had mas tered her lesson. It was a struggle between us sometimes, I assure you." Kate Cahill, aged thirteen, of New York, was on Saturday discovered to be dangerously ill. An investigation showed that on the 13th of No vember she accepted an invitation of her uncle, Patrick Kehoe, to visit her mother's grave, in Greenwood Cemetery, and that after visiting the grave he took her to a lonely art of the cemetery, under the pretense ol picking chestnuts, where he outraged her. The girl has been rapidly failing ever since, and pretended not to know what ailed her. Her uncle threatened to kill her if she di vulged discovery. Probably the youngest telegraph operators in the world are the little Misses Daniel Katie aud Ellen who live at DeLeon, a station of the f'entral Railroad, in ComnnchA cniintv Ta Their father is the railroad agent and telegraph operator there, and under his tutelage the little girls have become such expert operators that they take that part of the labor oft' his hands. Thuy are twins and only nine years old. Miss Huttie Williams, the juvenile operator at Williams's Banche, will have to take a back seat, as she is oiaer than these little girls. Mile.

Conscious how shoit a time she has lo live she, a few days fincc, sent for her late husband's son by his first wife, withdrew all onuosition to her late husband's will, offered her hand nf friend ship and gave him (her husband's sen) full power of attorney to manage her business.

"And If I do not kiss you again we must part forever?" he asked. "Yes," replied Myrt'e. "Then, good eve ning," he said, in cold, cruel tones.
