You must tilt about a teaspoenful of water into the glass and immediately intimidate it with as much whisky as the glass will hold. Then when the Count is made, throw the water out, , The Denver (Col ) Tribune has this story "Twelve years ago a family moved from Illinois to this city. Soon after arriving here a daughter was born to the female head of ;he household, and being favorably impressed with the country and hopeful for the-lookout, they named the youngest 'Great Prospects.' Not long since another daughter was bcrn, and a name was found in a singular manner, The names of Illi nois and Colotado were reversed, and the little one is now doomed to go through the world as Siortilti Odaroloc.' In the mean time Great Prospects has grown ts be of considerable size, and in this regird tho family are probably realizing tho iitith im plied by the naming. As yet, at least, there has appeared no cause for the reveH&l of the name, and she has only suffered by a diminution of her cognomento the common word 'Specti." i Atcoiitlts (Votti the lilack Üills indicate that there will be extreme distitutiou among the gold hunters this winter and, very likely, tome cases of actual starvation. A few man have made lucky hits, and brought away gold of considerable value; but these have been exceptional cases, for the niajr rity of those who went into that region ex' pectirig to find nuggets at every turn have failed utterly in their éxpecta'.ions, and are now unable either to buy food or to get away. Bow these are to live through the wiuter is a mystery, for the season for mining is over and not one in fifty of tbem can get' employment, even when they ere willing to work for only their board. The middle of last month provisions were selling at extravagant prices, flour being worth $ 16 per hundred, bacon thirtyfive cents per pound, and other things in proportion. The country is overrun with men who are absolutely penniless, and whose only hope for relief lies in getting money from their friends at home,' The report of new discoveries of gold in thi Wolf mountains, which are situated at thi head cf the Yellowtone tributaries, has caused a stampede of miners from the Black Hills. A private letter from a alter da'el .Vcr 11, siys that over 2.Í00 men had left the vicinity of Deadwood for the Wolf mountains C a ring the preced ing week, and predicts great suffering among these advontures, some of whom probably, have already perished from the extreme cold that set In Immediately after their departure, as many were poorly pro vided with clothing, and started out on their dangefous expedition Itipplied with nothing but it rids aad ammunition, a box of matches, and a bag of salt, depending entirely apon the game they might shoot for provisions. The distance from the Black Hills to the new mines is variously estimat ed at from on to two hundred niiles. A scarcity of water at the Wolf diggings is re ported at the best of times, and in conse quence of the inclemency of the weather in that region, it is not propable that any placer mining, can be done before spring, while the adders will be liable to attacks from hostile Indians at all times. A'. Y Stin. ' ' Three PreaideaU at Tiuif. Havana, Dec, 1 -Tb Eoglish steamer Vera Crux brings staftliug intelligence. On the 16th Porfirio Diaz, after four hour's fighting, defeated and destroyed the Gov ernment army unJr Gen. Alatorre near Damantla, about one hundred miles from the City of Mexico. Puebla ftll on the 18lh by revolt of the garrison. President Lardo de Tejada, with his Ministers, fled from the capital on the 21st, escorted by oa thoasand men aid carrying $500,000. Ia threw days the ticert had dwindled by desertion to 800. Before leaving Lerdo appointed Diaz men to the chief municipal offices. When last heard from he was in the State of Michoacao. Perfect order reigned in the city during the interregnum. Gen. Diaz entered the city on the 23J. Vera Cruz, with many other towns, has declared for Diaz. On the 80th Diaz was announced as Provisional President. He invited the merchants to meet him at tho palace, where he told them h wanted a load of $500.000 at one per cent, per month, which was granted. The question of paying ing the first installment, $300,000 to the United States in January on the claims awarded, is now being discussed. Gen. Diaz cannot possibly raise money above his immediate wants. An agreement had been mada between the Iglesias and D az faction) that Iglesias should appoint all the Cabinet, and Diaz all the State Governors ad interim, Iglosias finding that all the advantages were given to the Disz party, repudiated it. Hi was within one day's march of the capital, but returned with his troops and Cabinet to Guanajuato. F ve thousand troops left on the 28th for Guanajuato to put him down. Three thousand more were to leave on Dec. 2. Iglesias haS over 8,000 mon, and the Lerdo troops are fraternizing with him. Everybody is now anxiously waiting to see what turn affairs will take. Mean hilo the country has t'jree Presidents. i Brownsville, Texas, Dec. Iü General Rocha, one cf the best oflirers iu the Mex ican service and general of division, an i ved here by yesteiday'e steamer from New Or leans; He was recently sent in retirement by the Lerdo government to Berlit-; he comes here with full powers from the Ygle slag p irty, and if Matamoros is nut surrerid ered he will probably attack it by assault in a few days.. He is accompanied by G'ti. Quesada of Cuba and his brother; the hit' tr two arrived here under assumed nam s. Gen. Iiavaeltas still holds Mutumoras, laid is endeavoring to collect a tax cfuper centum on all property; this ia protested against and being resisted by all tho foreign merchants, who have deposited their cash and keys with the American consul forsake keeping. 'Ihi arbitrary measures of ItavaM tas lave U st for him all sympathy, rnd his downfall is certain. Tho partisans of Igle sias positively assert the confirmation of the news of the capture of Lor J , the death ofEscobedo and thi general submission of the interior to Iglesias. They Ai-o in high glee at the arrival of Benato, because it will relieve Cottina and thereby prevent com plications with the authorities on the other tide on Cortina's account. Trade has been paralyzed by ll'.e condition of nflYirs in Mexico, and every one is anxious for som settlement so that business will revive. Election ISet. "I have to day declared off all bets on the Presidency held by m),'" said Mr. John Morrissey to a Su reporter yosterday. "What are your reasons for doing so?" asked the reporter, ''In view of the present tlnforeseeu cim plications," said Mr, Morrissey, "both parties claiming the election, and the strong probability, in my jidment, that the decision will not bo arrived at for some time yet, and wnen it is, that it will be far less satisfactory than to return every man b s money, I anl satisfied that it is the best thing to do." "Has this action been getiTally anticipit ed by the ticket holders?" asked the re porter. "I think it has with the great majority." replied Mr. Morrissey. "In fact I should have done so before this had it not been that I am myself a heavy better on Tilden, and If I bad declared the bets off when it looked ai though Hayes was certain of 185 votes, people might have said ilut I did it to lav myself; but the news from Oregon lnday, which givea Mr. Tilden the needed vote to elect bim, and in my judgment makes hit chances at least as good, if not bitter, than thoieof Mr. Hayes, relieves me from that predicament. I don't belhve there is man in the United States to-night who can name the next Trc'tider!!, and if I should meet on who thought he could 1 would like to bet him on thousand dollars thai be could not. But, however this qufs lion it decided, the men who lose their money will not be satisfied. Tbry bet on tho result of the vote of the people, and flat on whom Ccngr ss might say would be President; sn l if I shoulJ pay over this money on any such decision, I would soon hive thousands of lawsuits on my hands to recover it back Already several gomia meo who bet money at my rooms, seme on Tilden and others on Hayes, have noliSed me not to give it up io case their man is dech'ed not elected, and one heavy bttr on Hayes assure m that if I do give up hit money, he will bring a suit agí in t me for its recortry." JV. ', Sun. Killed In a Theatre. rrom the Black HilU rioueeY, Nov. 18. About 9 o'clock on Thursday evening tha audience of the Bella Union Varieties was startled by the suddec exit of the perform ers and the sight of an axe thrown from the audilogium to tho stage. A man wai teen attempting to mount the stage, aud al most simultaneously with this movement -Dick Brown, one of the performer, came from behind tha win?3 and fired four shots from a revolver, saying, "H has followed me long enough." The man who had;-4grown the axe fell. An examination was made as to the extent of his injuries, and two bullet holes were , found on his perBon, one of the projectiles having entered tho right arm, and the other had penetrated the right side, just above tho hip. The wounded man, who was identi fied as Edivard Shaughnessy, died yester day morning. Some time ago Shaugnessy boenme acquainted with an actress known as Fanny Gurrétson, who Was at that time ' playing at McDaniel's Theatre'tti Chey enne. Sbaughnessy was employed at tha time by the Union Pacifio Ilailroad Com. pnny, and, up to .the time of his meeting Garrettson, was known to be a very exem plary young man, The fire which des troyed McDaniel's Thsatré on the 4th day of July, 1875, closed the theatrical season for the tune being, and Garrettson went to Laramie City to fill an engagement. At that place Bhe and Shaughnessy were legally married. After living together some months a rup ture occurred between the twain, and Miss Garrettson went to thj Pacific const. Sho afterward returned, h'tfwever, made up the quarrel!, find for a short time ngain lived with Shaughnessy. She subsequently left him and started for tha Black Hills. Sha arrivad in this city about three weeks ago, in company with Dick Drown, tho twu having bren eng iged by Tom Miller tt play at the BelU Union Varieties. Shortly after their arrival they wore married by Mayor Farnum, and have since lived to gelhjr. It appears that Shaughhessy. craz. eil ly the desertio i of his wife, followed her to this p'r.co. and threatened vengoanco upon tho hada of both. 1 a i Costly Drotites and Jewel ' riiil.itleljihia Telegraph.
