comes from Baltimore of the wrest of one
of Ironton's young women on a schooner,
where she had shipped, in male attire,
under the name of Frankie Hains. Her
maiden name was Mary Harper, and a few
years ago she lived here with her parents,
who were industrious, respectable people.
She was an intelligent little black-eyed
girl, and no one gueased that she would
ever turn out to be a rough tramp in male
attire, which her subsequent life has
Sroven.- When arrested on suspicion of
eing a female, she confessed and told the
following story, which in the main is true.
Some of ner relatives live here, and only a
few days since her husband was seen on
our streets. The wayward girl had been
missing so long that she was mourned as
lost:
"I was born in Mason county, Ky.; my

St. Paul, the "wholesale movement is in
f;ood volume. In the South dry goods
lave been pushed with a fair degree of
success. In the Jiwt there are no developments
of note beyond the advance in
Glendon and Andover brands of pig iron.
This is in part attributable to the fact that
they have always commanded one dollar
per ton more than other varieties of forge.
The demand for dry goods is for nearby
wants only, jobbers and a^euts reporting
a small volume of business. It is,
however, better than a year ago, and
about equal to the volumo disposed of in
December J 883.

London, Dec. 18.?There is a puzzling
ibundance of descriptions of Gladstone's
chemefor granting Home Rule to Ireland,
rhey are bo widely different that it ia evdent
that they have no common origin
ind they may all be guesswork. The
fernellitea are happy over one fact reading
theae forecasts. Each one of
hem, inclading the least favoraile,
CDncedes more to Ireland than
.ny British party would have
ranted or l'arnell would have ventured
0 demand even a few weeks ago. The
'arnellites believe that Gladstone has not
et formulated hie scheme in his own
lind, aud they suspect that he has aljwed
inklings of it to escape for the puroae
of having them published and critiized,
by which means he may be guided
1 the completion of the scheme. It is
lear that the scheme has not yet
een reduced to writing or proosed
to anybody in set terms. It
i hftliRVrid that thn Slnutlnrd at.
were taicee into court ana lormai coarges a
were preferred against them, and they
were remanded to await examination. J
It appears that the prisoners had writ- h
ton two lotteri, bat as they were not read cl
in court it is imposaible to give their exact ^
language, except to state in general terms P
what they contained. It is known, how- 11
over, that the letters made a demand for P'
*750, and intimated in unmistakable terms u
that unless this amount was forthcoming 'J
the Prince's life would be in jeopardy. f?
Vhe Prince, it is said, paid only passing ^
itteution to the first letter, which the J.
Magees sent, but when tho second uame,
reiterating the demaud and the threats, $
lis Koyal Ilighnuss turned the letters ft
>ver to the polios and left them to do "\
whatever they thought beat. w
sure, although mildly repudiated by
ladstone, contains many elements of
uth, and that its publicatioa was due to
le batrayal of parts of the programme
f some one of Gladstone'! recent guests,
itli whom the subject of home ruie was
scussed. Opinion is divided as to
hether this leaky confident was Lord
>encor, Lard Granville or Mr. C. T.
ike-Ackland, a friend of Gladstone's,
lio haa just been re-elected for Cornwall.
The St, Janus' Gazctu says this evening
at Herbert Gladstone, a few days ago,
ardodJy imparted to curtain Liberal toirs
a sketch of hit father's plans. This is !
saible, but not probable. If Mr. Gladme
desired to take any nowspapor into |
?confidence it would, undoubtedly, be 1
i own organ, the Daily Newt. That
per has not yet spoken, aud until it
es it may b* assumed that all forecasts
the now scheme are more or less un- '
thorixed speculation. 1

of ex-Uovernor8epulveda have not
been generally known lor the put lew
days, and It was supposed among many of
hia friends that he waa confining himself
to the privacy of hia reaidence. The fact
now leaks ont that he is a priioner in the
military guard house by order of the Federal
Government. Much indignation Is
felt At this second breach of faith on the
part of General Reges.
The revolutionary forces, which have
been in thia city for some days are gradually
leaving in small bands nnder subcommanders.
One of these companies, on
arriving at Sabinas, north of thia city, endeavored
to enforce the municipal authorities
to pay a sum of money. A fight
occurred in which the revolutionists were
defeated, losing their captain. Fears are
entertained that these small bands will
resolve themselves into banditti, greatly
to the detriment of travel in the country.
General lieges, Acting Governor, has
appointed Manuel Rodriguex, late chief of
the revolutionists, as Federal Alcalde of
Lampasas, in the Northern part of the
State. This is a great surpriso" to the citiseus
here, but ia voncidered aa a stroke of
food policy on the part of the Government.
