INTERESTING Prix EEDlMiS IX Parlia
MENT 1 E8TERDAY? The Treaty of Washington
Uittuot <1?In the British Huiw of Commons,
on Thursday, notice was given of th-s introduc
tion of a number of bills: one providing for the
purchase of the English railways by the gov
ernment, and another legalizing marriage with
a deceased wife's sister. Yesterday sj?eeches
were made strongly criticizing the treatv of
Washington, condemning l*>th it and its results,
and charging the government with surreuder
ing English honor, ami sacrificing the interests
of Canada. Members on the ministerial side
protested against ihe needless discussion of the
treaty. It made a great change in internation
al law, awl ?ne highly advantageous to Eng
land. It was a very great mistake to suppos ?
that the Canadian interests had been compro
mlsed when the Canadians themselves thought
otherwise. The subject of the loss of the emi
Gint ship Nortlifieet was introduced in the
rds, and the opinion was expressed that a
criminal prosecution would not hold against the
Murlllo's ofiicers. unless it could be sliowu that
manslaughter had been committed.
The "Friend or the Family" in the
Greeley Will Contest Smoked Olt Mr.
Isaiah T. Williams was volunteer counsel for
the contestants of Mr. Greeley's last will, it will
be remembered. Does the following from the
New York Commercial Advertiser refer to him?
The "friend of the family" Is "smoked out" at
last. The raistm iT'tr* of'the fireelev will liti
gation^lias been discovered, and mystery yield*
Question?Why were th??e disgraceful pro
ceedings ever brought, and. more emphatically,
why were they persisted in after al! the r.xrties
in interest under any of Mr. Greele\'s wills had
relinquished their claims?
Answer.?The "friend of the faniilv" owe,!
the estate f2.000 (borrowed from Mr. Greelev.)
and precipitated a legal wrangle in order,"as
counsel for the executors of the wiil of ikt?. to
plead his professional services in pa\ inent of his
debt! "A rati A rat?" *_
Disastrous Strikes axukb ohio Coal
Miners?It is estimated that nearly 7,400 coal
miners are now on a strike in the neighborhood
of Youngs town, Ohio, and the Tuscarawas Val
ley. Many strikers have large faidUes, who are
suffering tor the necessaries of life. A number
of the iron workmen have been compelled to
suspend operations for want of coal, thusswell
ing the aruiy of unemployed laborers. Three
hundred colored miners have been brought from
\ irginia to work in the Bowers coal mine, and
the experiment has proved so successful that
other mining companies are contemplating the
importation of colored lal>orers. Tnere seem>
no probability of an early settlement of the
question between the striking miners and their
employers, and business is almost at a stand
still.
A SriRiTt ALisTif Wem?in?.?The recent
wedding ceremony of Miss Kate Fox. one of the
rox sisters, to whom is due the orgin of spiritual
manifestations in this country, was attended
with demonstrations of an appropriate but
ghostly character. Raps were heard about the
altar: and at the wedding breakfast the spirits
tendered their congratulations by tumultuous
raps, and bv playfully transporting the table,
to the aggravation of the hungry guests. The
bride's mother, deceased, expressed her ap
proval by a special message to the groom
Theu the ghosts grew jovial and cracked a few
time-worn jokes, of whose antiquity they were
doubtless ignorant, as they were fresh when
they were ou earth. Altogether, one must con
clude that it takes a groom of considerable
nerve to marry a "medium."
A Contested Will Case?Sarah S- Camp
bell, a resident of this eltv. died, leaving an es
tate worth about *100.000. bequeathing property
worth about SSO.OOO to Archibald H/Campbell,
her only son. and the rest of the property to ne
phews, nieces, and other relatives. The son
now contests the will on the grounds that a
large part of the property bequeathed was in
reality owned by him. having been ostensibly,
although not really, conveved by him to his mo
ther, and that his mother was unduly influenced
in making her will by the other legatees. The
case came on for hearing to-day hi the Surro
gate's Court, but al ter the testimony of the sub
scribing witnesses to the will had been taken a-i
adjournment was had?A*. I'. Pott, 6th.

At a public meeting held at the Manassas hotel

Justice a Mo? eery ix Gotham It looks
very much as if Rosenweig, the alleged mur
derer of Alice Bowlaby, would at last escape
justice, through a trick of the law as it is now
administered in Gotham. He was convicted,
and sentenced to seven years' imprisonment,
bat owing to some legal technicality, the ver

that after March 4,1?3, salaries shall be fixed

The Trial or Plateu rot: Wire Murder?
RVSlti'll of th' Sui> idr TUtory of the O'ftnc'..?
The court room at Cambridge. Md., is daily
crowded with intensely interested attendants on
ihe trial of John R. Plater for the Murder of his
wife. The state closed their caae on Thursday,
*ith evidence to show that the letter sent to
Airs. Plater asking her to return to her husband,
and signed with the name of Sally Brice, was
not written by the latter. She was placed on
the stand and testified that she knew Mrs. Pia
tt r, but wrote no such letter, for the very good
rrasou that she could not write at all. The
theory of the state is that Plater wrote this let
ter as a decoy for the purpose of bringing his
wife to him, and then murdered her. The de
fence opened its side with the testimony of ea
Gov. Thomas, who gave in evidence that Mc
Carty askod him tor aid to get away from Eastoii.
stating that If he remained there he would con
vict Plater. McCarty Is the man who swore to
hearing Plater admit to Bryan that he killed
his wife. Brvan was placed on the staud yester
day and testified that he had uever had any such
conversation with Plater a* McCarty stated.
Another witness testified that when the body of
Mrs. Plater wan found there was laving uear it
a bottle labeled "chloroform,"and a paper with
the label of -'strychnine" upon it. This was in
confirmation Of* the plea of the defence th-?t
Mrs. Plater committed suicide, but it wa? sub
sequently Invalidated br the confession of the
witness that he had only heard that such a label
was on the paper.

there and be reiut'orced by more ice with the
