MONDAY ATKIL I, 1?72. Wholcnalc Y??<lnlNni ..Arrwt of n R?tllroad Fiona. Fmu, the Klinlr. A-Korttsor. March ??th. On Snfunliv Detective Mahon, of the Eric railwav. and Defective Howard, of the Jersey Cifv wlicc. captured Joseph \V heeler, sup posed to I* the person, who broke into the three Eric railway Pullman ear-sand cut and mutilated the. seat.* and cushions, and other \vi>" damaged the <wr* to the extent of sev er d thousand dollar*. Five hundred dol lar* in cold had l>ccn offered by thcconi|wny. The prisoner i* lo be examined before.Iudgej *<<*>>0. in Jersey City to-day, and it i> e.vixrfed j that a number of witnesses will test ify that within a few months Wheeler Ikl* mane m i oral attempts at wholesale murder for rv\ eng( and Iwotv. He was formerly in theentplo> of the Erie Kaftwav Company on the N? branch, and after hi* dismissal he pubheli threatened that he would Is- reym?< d. Last fall two locomotive.* were stolen at night from the company's shop in New burg, and were run out on the road from twenty to twwutv-tive mile* and left tlwre standing on the track. Fortunately in both instances the diabolical act Was discovered in time to m oid accident*. A number of times then> nftcr flie switches were turned for the pur pose of throwing passenger trains from the track at points where the results must have t>ecu fearful. Every effort was made to di>-1 cover the livnd, but without success, ait hough ( suspicion pointetl towards V heeler. Two months ago the company turned out a costly baggage wagon, and the next morn ing the wood work wa* found to huvc been chopped to piec. s and uttterly destroyed. Warrants for this and other crimes were granted for the arrest of Wheeler, but he escaped, and with hi* mother took up his residence fit Jersey City. Latterly he has horn travelling on the Erie road, and for three weeks Detective Mahon had been on hi* track, but failed to apprehend him until Saturday. At the examination to-day Superintendent Parr, of the Erie railway, and a number of witnesses from Xewbtirg, will produce evidence that will l>e stiflicient to hold him for t hese various offences. When Wheeler was arrested the officers found on hi* i-or.-on a intent safe containing a variety of miniature burglar's tools for use in open ing trunks and other baggage. MALICIOUS VISClllKT PREVENTKD ON THK OHIO ami Mississirn kailkoap. The engineers, conductors, and train men | of the Ohio and Mississippi railroad liave been greatly troubled of late by the very ap parent endeavors of some persons to throw the train from the track, Roth attempts were made at a station called Wheatland, about ten miles east of Yincennes. The first", a spike between rails, was discovered by the section boss; and the second, a misplaced switch, by the track-walker. It was ascertained, according to the Cin cinnati Commercial, that Josiah Whitehead was the guilty party, and he was arrested. The Adams Express < "ompany at Cincinnati, having an idea that the object was robbery of the express safes, sent their detective, Larry ilazen, to look into the affair. White head, who appears to have a large circle of relatives in Indiana, made a pretence at first at a full confession, telling an extraordi nary story of the operations of a gang composed of himself, a telegraph opera tor at Wheatland, his cousin (Joe White head;, a woman named Nancy A. Rol lins (dlsgui*ed us a man and armed to the teeth), and one George Whittcn, whose object was to throw a j^assenger train off and rob the express safe. lie slated that all these parties were interested in the second at tempt, and *tood bv, at a safe distance, waiting to see the train go off, and rcadv to jump in for the prize. Had this second attempt succeeded the train would have been thrown upon a "spur," and thence down ? distance of lilteon feet. Fortunately the track-walker made the discovery and flagged the threatened train, with a red light, in good time. There were certain circumstances that in dicated, beyond any doubt, that Whitehead deliberately lied in making this .statement, and - be was pressed close for Hie truth. He then stated that he was alone in thcimsi ?i' - and that his only object was to see how far 11 locomotive would go when thrown from a track at top speed ! The cheerful young explorer in the fields of practical mechanics and cause and effect will not have an opportunity of again at tempting IIiig brilliant experiment. The stout prison in Vineenncs, where he is now re strained, is probably the best place for him, as the people who run trains at a high rate of speed along that road have expressed the tear that if he is allowed his liberty lie mav be found some day in a smoked condition dangling from one of the bridges down there! A Small-Pox Sensation.?A genuine small pox sensation was inaugurated a few days since in Driftwood, near Williamsport, Pa. It appears that a scavenger nude his appear ance at the hotel in that village, and was given lodgings for the night, retiring in a state ot intoxication. The next morning he was found to be sick and unable to rise, and died the eveniug of that day. A cotlin was procured, the corpse laid out,* and upon removal it was ascertained that the hody could not be con-1 vcyed down the stairway, owing to its nar row, winding eoiuve. It was thereupon re solved to lower tlic body from a window, aud in the execution of this task the coffin burst, and the body fell to the ground, also bursting. Six men gathered up the remains, aud the burial was performed as speedily as possible. To the utter astonishment of the people of that place, six inmates of the hotel were taken with small-pox, one of whom, a son of the landlord, died on the 2.3th ultimo. A guard has been steadily maintained day and night uround the hotel to prevent the in mates from escaping, and to keep outsiders away, but in spite of all their vigilance one of the patients, suffering from delirium, has escaped, and at last accounts had not been captured. The business of the hotel previous to this visitation was about $100 per day: some of the patrons escaped upon tbe out break of the disease, and now demand their baggage, but the landlord refuses to deliver it, a conclusion in which lie will receive the endorsement cf the inhabitants. Horrible Affair is Otis, Mass.?A Man Shoots his Sister in "Playfulness."?On Friday evening last at Otis, Mass., there oc curred one more of that long list of unin tentional slaughters by the criminal practice of "fooling" with tire-arms and pointing them at people "in sport." The foolishness of such acts is beyond the power of words to descrilie; aud it is criminal folly?results in death in hundreds of cases. This particu lar wise of this criminal folly was one l'bilo Clark's. He lmd a gun in his hand. lie says he hud cleaned it out with water, aud sup posed it to be empty. His sister, Mrs. Ellen Turner, who laid come into her bro ther's house with her husband and her lit tle daughter to make a call, sat near by with her husband, (.'lark was talking with theuij aud held his gun in his band. The little girl asked what lie was going to do with it, " Shoot your mother," said he, and pointed the gun at her head. " Take good aim, Philo," said the lady; and her daugh ter ran and clasped her miiis around her mother's neck. The next moment Clark fired, blowing his sister's bead in pieces and injuring the little girl's arm so that amputa tion wul be necessary. "He had no evil in tentions, being on the best of terms with 3Irs. Turner, and is overwhelmed with grief." lie is a steady, industrious man, in the employ of the Gold Spring Iron Com pany. Mrs. Turner was only twenty-two years of age, and her daughter*is six.* The event occasions great excitement in Otis. A Sau Francisco jxijier is put out of be nevolence by u little ftjn at its expense, and says: " We regard the atrocious correspond ent as an infernal tiend, a falsc-tongued, mid night monster, a red-handed assassin, a thief, a he-schoolpiarm, a fraud, a ghost, aud an un pleasant person. We esteem him a pea-green demon of the steaming pit with u cottonwood tail, eyes In his sides, and a cork neck stud ded with hot door-knobs! If there is any thing worse than this, we think him that," Si?rn is becoming civilized, aud its king Jnu? leariitd to wear shirts, richtmriic Incident*?An Aduiirer of j the (Inlmnnt. An unhnppv woman uamcd Ware, whilst in a state of drunkenness the day alter the trial was over, alarmed the Inhabitants ot j Tothill street, Westminster, by loudly <Ic nounring the way in which "Sir Kogei : Tiehborne " had been treated, and^ by de claring that, as the claimant was locked up, she would share his fate. Site uas 0,1 l "| (lav brought up beforea magistrate. \\l o,in sending her to prison for a " (^ fault of paying a small hue, told her that . he | could not l e accommodated In the. same building with the claimant. sriCIDK OK A HOLI'KIt OK TICflDORNE BONDS. \ few davs since an Inquest was held on i fjM, IhmIv ot Charles Thompson, aged thirty nine, who committed suicide by taking ver-j min powder at No.20 ttolwrt street, under the following circumstances: The deceased lodged at the above address,and at half-past ,s .Airs. Cod ley, the landlady, took up a letter which he pushed under the door. Within an hour afterwards he called out for assist ance, and .asked for a doctor. lie said he had taken some vermin-killer, and before medical j aid could he procured life was extinct. Dr. W. lijoxham said the cause of death was poisoning by strychnia. Evidence was tliPti given showing that he was interested in the Tiehborne bonds, and it is supposed that the letter given to him contained informat ion of J the foreman's intimation on the previous day, the effect of which caused him to commit the j act. now the coon nkWs was received by the kiuenDs ok the kkae heir. On receipt of the news that this almost uii-1 precedonted case bad collapsed, the inhabi tants of Tisbury, Wills, Eng., (near which stands the noble residence of Lord Arundel, of Wardour.) of every class and creed, rcli- J gious and political, were on the alert to tes-j tify tIieir joy at the result, and their good w iil to the noble lord and bis lady as well as to his resjieeted relatives. Lady Tiehborne and her son, the rightful heir. Joyous peals tiegan to pour forth from the bells of the pn- j rish church, so long dormant by reason of J the insecure state of the tower, which were continued at intervals during the evening, and far into the night. Nine-pounders and all the small arms of the place were brought into service, and at frequent intervals volleys were discharged at different parts of the pa-1 risli. A sham-fight afterwards took place, result ing, of course, in the defeat of the parfy not properly armed. tin the return of Lord Arundel from Lon bon on Thursday he was met at the Tisbury station at 3 A. M. by liis lady and many of j life tenantry and others on horseback there awaiting him. On his lordship taking his seat in his carriage the noble pair were heart ily cheered, and wore thence escorted to the j entrance of Wardour Park, wlu re the horses were taken out, and the carriage was drawn to the Castle by some of the assemblage. His lordship, before alighting, in an appropriate ,-peecli. with feelings of emotion, thanked those present, as well as absentees, for the kind feelings of sympathy shown to him du iing the course of this eventful trial,and especially for the present manifestations. During these proceedings the diuretfbrlls again sent forth their music, the cannon's roar was again heard in the evening, large bonfires were lighted on .several noted emi nences.-whilst the church and its vicinity were brilliantly illuminated. All Englishman who has been visiting Metz writes to a London i?aper : 44 A stroll through the streets of Metz shows many a change. The first thing that must strike any new eonior is the prodigious number of shops which arc to be let, and the good will ol' the business to be sold. Placards with 4 shop to Jet," or ' business to l>e disused ol',' meet one :it almost every other door. And I should say that a good portion of the shops which are now open are kept by Germans. All the restaurants, with hardly an exception, have ' Jxcstauraiwn,- and often 4 Hem and Bier? too. added to their French titles. Many shops, notably cigar and book shops, are wholly German, and are kept by German owners. No one can doubt that the French trading classes arc emigrating largely from Metz. Had one not already known that this was the ease, one could guess that it was by seeing in Nancy numbers of shops with ' from Metz' after their tenants' names. And the spirit of the people? Well, there is no u<e denying it, the people do not seem at all inclined to turn good Germans. I had seen a good deal of hatred of the Teuton on my way through the occupied departments. But it was as nothing compared with the abso lute horror of the conqueror which is shown by the middle classes in Metz. They are ex tremely ostentatious in their patriotism, which tliev seem to think is best shown by glaring at every one whom they fancy to be a German, and giving the Germans the cold shoulder in every possible way. 1 am told tliat, as might be expected, none of the German officers Jbcre are ad mitted into French society; and that if by chance an inhabitant of Metz finds himself in the same room with a German lie instantly leaves it, and never puts his foot in the house again. All the attempts of the Germans to bridge over the great gulf which yawns between the two nationalities have hitherto failed completely on the admission of the victors themselves. It is the delight of the inhabitants on days when one of the tciinan military bands is expected to play n the Esplanade?the Rotten Row of letz?to crowd round the orchestra ircvious to the arrival of the musicians, t n 4.1.. _ \ ,1 IJV Jk J VUIVV*.?^ W?v?? ?? H V./ ??? done in their glory. Every Frenchman in Metz tells"3*ou,with patriotic delight, how the ri-eolor flag is'still fixed to the top of the ca hedral spire, and how the Germans have iflered unavailinglv large sums to any one vho will remove it. It should l>c noted in wssing that the said flag is so small as to be inly just visible to the naked eye, and so ixeeedingly dirty that no one can tell, ex cept with eyes enlightened with patriotic hith, whether it be.the flag of France, lTus ?i:i, or Timbuetoo." The Pittsburg Gazelle tells this: 44 One of our jiolteemcn observed an individual stand ing in the doorway of a store. Approaching him, he requested him to move on. and as the stranger did not immediately start, be asked hiui his name. The stranger did not reply, but took his hands out of his pockets and put (hem up in front of the policeman's face, lu an instant the officer grabbed the culprit, and with considerable difficulty suc ceeded in carrying hiin to the station-house, placing him before the lieutenant in charge. I In reply to an inquiry from the lieutenant, the officer related what had taken place, and also stated that the culprit had attempted to strike him with his fists. The lieutenant then asked the stranger what he had to say to the charge. The stranger did not speak a word, but instead took out n slate and pencil anil wrote,41 am u doafjnute; I have been to the deaf mute reunion at the Hotel, and stood in the doorway waiting for a horse-cur to carry me home.' Perhaps the officer did not feel streaked amidst tho laughs and jeers of his brother officers." Colonel George W. Parker, of Jndianapo lis, is the most excited man in the Unitci States. lie tears around the streets on tin commonest kind of business like a mad bull when he smokes he does so like alocomo tive, and when nature forces sleep on hi system, his snoring is like the ravings of Mc Eenn Buchanan when tliat great histiionii howler urges Macduff to 44 lay on and b< d?d." And yet the Colonel was not alway thus. The period of his Jurious excitemen dates from a certain battle in the late war when ho "bulged" on the rebels, and eon ducted one of the hottest charges known He got excited on that occasion, and ha never cooled off a particle since.?Indiant Evening Journal. An Illinois country i>aper ventures to J think that as the warm weather advances] the hope that the Illinois Legislature will adjourn must be strengthened, because " when malaria begins to spring up from the miasatic bogs of the Sangamon the members will feel that Springfield is no place for them. Ague loves a shining mark, and fastens on no one so readily as on a legislator exhausted by his efforts to'rival Demosthenes." The Japanese attended the opera " Martha" at Philadelphia, and pronounced its tuneful inclose* unutterably discordant. | TnK Death ok Rosa Rand?Discharge ok Davis.?Yesterday afternoon the coroner concluded the inquest on the body of "M'llc Kosa," the trapeze performer, who met so tragic n death at the hands ot her reputed husband while stopping at the Madison House on Friday last. The testimony of) six or eight inmates of the hotel, policemen, | and others, was taken, but the statements of all of them went to show that the tragedy was but the result of an accident. There was nothing adducerl in it to prove that Davis, tlif man who committed the deed, had anything to excite liini to jealousy, or lead him to the perpetration of a crime toward the woman lie was ( ravelling with. The ver dict. of the coroner's jury was that Catharine Whitlonv, (lie. deceased, came to her death from thee fleets of a gun-shot wound inflicted by (he accidental discharge of a pistol in the hands of James (i. Davis. Whitfoey, the last, husband of the deceased, who tele graphed to the Chief of Police on the sub ject, failed to put in an appearance yesterday. Last evening Davis was still detained at the >>*inth-^troet ]K>lieo station, though on what authority he was kept we are unable to state. Cincinnati En'fiiirer, March 2Gth. Motes and Queries gives the following rules for stopping a punster and a profes sional story-teller, taken from an old book entitled ?'Maxims of Sir Morgan Dolierty, Bart. MAXIM THIRD. " A punster during dinner is a most incon venient animal. lie should, therefore, be immediately discomfited. The art of dis comfiting a punster is this: pretend to be deaf: and alter lie lias committed his pun, and just before lie expects people to laugh at it, beg his pardon, and request liim to re peat it again. After you have made hiin do this three times, say 1 0 ! that is a pun, I be lieve.' 1 never knew a punster venture a third exhibition under similar treatment. It requires a little nicety, so as to repeat it in proper time. If well done, the company laugh at the punster, and then lie is ruined forever." MAXIM EKi'IITU. '? A story-teller is so otten a mighty pleasant fellow that it may be deemed a difficult mat ter to decide whether lie ought to be stopped or not. In case, however,that it be required, far the best way of doing it is this: After he lias discharged his first tale, say across to some confederate (for this method requires confederates, like some juggler's tricks), '?Number one.' As soon as lie lias told the second, in like manner say * Number two.' Perhaps he may perceive it, and if so, he stops. If not, the very moment his third story is told, laugh out quite loud, and cry to your friend, 'I trouble you for the sovereign. Vou see I was right when I betted that he would tell these tlirco stories exactly in that order in the first twenty minutes after his ar rival in the room.' Depend upon it lie is mum after that." wioiina ratti made a nice distinction when m inn Culled Stat* ? not Vamour but la mode. 1IUI t- U?w"' - Tlicv tmv the hair front ^In.shouw? ami city undertakers in Richmond ?nd <*?* ? tor-fall*.
