Nov. 7.] f Th particulars of it recent occurrence in tbe North division, of a peculiarly dis trPMlnu and 'mysterious nature, have just come to light. The affair, which resulted in the death of a prominent citizen ot that division, on Sunday morning last, ha?, un til now. tor prudential reasons, been with held from the public. The matter is still undergoing an investigation, but no in quest has yet been held, and it Is probable, that, as yet, tbe coroner has not been noti fied f tbe occurrence. But, though these investigations have been pending since Sunday last, the whole matter is still shrouded in as great a mystery as aver. Owing to the efforts-made to keep the particulars from the public, the details of the affair given below are necessarily mea gre: A lew months since Mr. F. M. Peter son opened a drug store at No. 312 North avenue, but whether he was a new resident of the city at that time could not be learn ed last evening. His business did not suc ceed as well as he had anticipated, and culminated a few days ago iu a disastrous failure, his aasets iieing" reported largely, below his liabilities. It is also reported that he had met with a similar misfortune before. His misfortunes in business, par ticularly his last failure, seemed to have preyed on his mind until, except when stimulated by some artificial excitement, he had become habitually melaucholy anJ low-spirited, and was led to seek amuse ments which he would otherwise have avoided. On Saturday night last,' be attended a dance, where, it is not known. His wife, who is reputed to be a very beautiful and accomplished lady, did not accompany him, but, in company with some other la dies, supposed to have been visitors in his family eat Hp to await his return-- At an early hour oil Saturday morning last he returnea nome, ana round nts wife and the ladies referred to sitting up. He was ap parency in rather better spirits than usu al, and, soon alter entering the room, he poured out some raspberry wine, a glass for himself, and one lor each of the ladies. Alter chattinaT a few moments, be drank his glass of wine, the ladies only sipping theirs. In a few minutes after that draught he was a. corpse... .,. Tnese are the main facts of the case, and. very naturally, it gives rise to a variety of surmises, was tins sudden oeatn attrtou- table to that glass of wine? -If it was drug ged,, who did it? Tbete are grave ques tions, and, as yet, have not been satisfacto rily answered. Some, who are cognizant ot tne peculiar circumstances, ana his habits ot late, believe that it was the work ot bisown hand ; others equally conversant with the facts hint very grave suspicions of foul play. It may be that neitbei suppo sition is the correct- one, and that his sud den death is attributable to natural causes, but from -his peculiar habits and tempera ment, it seems probable that he died a sui cide's death. ; A thorough - investigation should be, and' undoubtedly will be, made. that the deep mystery in which the aflair is trow shrouded may be cleared up. Sale of the Steubenville Railroad —An Exciting Time—The Line Purchased for the Pennsylvania Central Railway Company. sale of that portion of the Pitt-burs and Steubenville Railroad, lying within the State of Pennsylvania, took place at the uourt House yesterday, and attracted considerable interest. A few days since we save the particulars of the circum stances under which the road was ordered to be sold, and the object sought to be at tained :hy thoaa pressing the sale, so that it Is unnecessary to do more now than relate wbat.transpireaTegterday when the work came under the hammer of the auctioneer tor disposal. Our good-humored and ener getic friend, Captain Harry Smithson, offi ciated on tne occasion, and, after statins b. terms of the sale, Ac,, -started business Kith a-bid or 2U,0)0, from which the price advanced rapidly to $200,000, in bids ot sl.000 each. There were now a few scattering bids. which brought the price up to $500,000, when Mr. VY. R.-EUie, ot New York, star tled the audience by offering $1,000,000. Mr. Bills represented a number of parties. whose claims would have bean completely wiped out had the Pennsylvania Railroad been able to arrange matters so that it conld get tbe ro id at its own figure, and his bid, showing that he meant. mischief, caused quite a flurry of excitement among tne representatives or- tne Dig" corora tion, who were present in force, awaiting the result."' - --" After a Httle consultation, Mr. Howard. Solicitor for the Pennsylvania Central, put on anotner ou,uou out was soon overtop ped by Mr. bins, who bid $10,000, more. From this figure it crept gradually ud to $1,600,000. wueuMr. Ellis relieved the mo notony somewhat by putting 4t up to $1, 630.000. -The excitement now ran Quite high, and those who expected the Pennsyl vania Railroad -would get the work for a "mere Rone"' hecan tn look anv t.hino- hnr. comfortable. Bids of $10,000 each now fol lowed each other in rapid succession, until $1 900,000 was reached, with Mr. Ellis still ahead. The figure was evidently far beyond what tbe other side bad calculated on. and. though the auctioneer commenced shout- inn out "once, twice,'' kc it was some time before Mr. Howard returned to the attack. Bids of five thousand dollars each now followed : each other rapidly until 1.9oo,000 was reached, Mr. Ellis still at ti.e "top ot the heap.-' A short pause fol lowed Mr. E.'s last bid, but Mr. Howard was quick to the rescue, and bid $1,9C0.0(J0, at wtilch figure be became tbe purchaser, x ne price oDiained is tar Deyond what it was thought the work would bring, but is probably not wltlun half a million dollars ot its absolute value.'- ; it will, however. eafficeinot only to pay-the-claim? of the first mortgage bondholders, but, contrary to expectation, there will be 'a large sur plus over, to be disbursed among the hold ers ot tue second and third mortgage bond.

"You remember that fine, large Newfoundland dogof mincdon'tyou ?- every body knows him. - we did rememoer the Durly, busby, how-wowing orute, ana said so.

"1 woulun t take $50 for him; and, would you believe it? wife savs she's glad he's gone! Now. 1 waift to advertise turn." we placed pencil and pa per .before our patron, and he began to write '-Stolen I from the ' residence 'ot the suscriber, street, a large New foundland dog, named lowser.

They have some affecting weddings out in the flat country, beyond the trees. In the semi-rural district of VVinona, on' me .Mississippi river, lives, among several people, a good joUy fellow of a justice of tne peace, un a lair day last weeK, alter the ten by twelve law dlpensary had been swept, there was a step heard on tbe stairs, and a vigorous rap at the door. "Come In," said the justice. A handsome, black-eyed, Spanish look ing woman entered. It was a clear case of asenorita, of the New Mexican brand. She had on a short woolen dress, woo len-soled shoes; spotted red cheek, black hair, and eyes that snapped like tbe lock of a shot gun. In a Spanish accent, and iu the worst possible English, she said: 'You make justicia aquif You law man?" , 'Yes, Madam ; be seated "Want paper. Want paper to take man." Ju-t then a stout French half-breed en tered the room. He was unable to speak a dozen words, and looked either scared or bashful. The judge saw at once there was a marriage to come on, aud said to the woman: "Want paper to take this man ?" "Yes; want paper. Me teach him." (Nice woman, thought the justice ) "All right," as he turned to the man and said: "You kuow this woman: can you take her?" The man shook his bead, and muttered unintelligible words. "Ah, I se. Can't talk English. Well, never mind." . He ran into tbe street, invited a few friends upstairs, and on returning with them said to the woman. "You want to take him; me nay I" "All rightl"" 1 J Then turning to the man who stood trem bling: - - "Yoa take this woman for better or tor wors, and promise to keep her, &c &e. - "Umph !" and several nods of the head. ' "Then in the name of the law, and by virtue of the authority in me vested, 1 pro nounce yon man and wife." And he step- - ped forward before the woman could say a word and kissed her red lips. : "Slap" came her hand in his face, and she clutched his hair. The new husband lumped to take the woman away, and to I protect ber, as the man supposed, when in self preservation the justice gave him a rap on the nose. The woman pitched int the new husband, who in turn pitched into - ber, and tor about five minutes there was a general bustling. - At last the parties were separated, when -the man and woman took another turn at each other, the blood and hair flying in all directions. Down came the stove, over went the table, clatter went the chairs, and into the street like mad went the justice, with a black eye and the bosom of his shirt looking like a warranty deed covered with red seals! A crowd rushed up stairs and found the man and woman lying on thflor. the wo man on top and pommelling the newly made husband witli a will. The newly married couple were separat ed, when through tiie aid ot two interpre ters, it was discovered that the night be fore the parries occupying the adjoining shanties in the lower part ot the town had got into a dispute over some stovepipe which was claimed by both. and from words they had come to blows. Each party had hastened to the justice's office in the morning tor a warrant for the other, with the result as stated above. The last news from there was that the. parties had gone in search of another Ju tice to unmarry them. . The English Wheat Market. The . price of wheat in England has doubled since 1S64. and is now higher than it has been since the close of the Crimean war. In the first fortnight of the present month it rose on the average fifteen per cent. The crop Is said to turn out, on threshing, a far lighter yield than was an ticipated, and French buyers are still active in their operations in the English market. In the absence of any thing like agricultural statistics in England, it is difficult to ar rive at an estimate of the yield, and the hosts of disinterested amateurs who volun teer reports to the English papers during harvest are scarcely reliable authorities. It is certain that the past harvest in Eng land was generally late, and characterized by sudden and simultaneous ripening, and a good deal of damage by storms before it could be gathered. - These are just the cir cumstances under which the real yield of a crop is likely to fall below anticipation. Be sides thedifflcnltiesol transportion In South ern Russia, which render any sudden Influx from that country impossible, the vexatious restrictions met with in Black Sea ports are said greatly to deter English shipowners from entering if they can help it into a branch of the carrying trade so likely to prove unremunerative. The sudden de mand for transports for the Abyssinian ex pedition enhances the cost of freightage for tbe moment. But the great external cause for the sudden rise of wheat to what approaches famine prices in the English ma.'Ket seems to De tne steady r rencu pur chases. They would seem to argue one of two things either a very serious defici ency in France, which will render purchas es, even at present prices, remunerative, or a oeller among rencn speculators often a very sagacious body iu the imminence of war. Of course this sudden advance is of the deepest moment to the American producer certainly in regard to present opportu nities ot prone, ana possioiy as attfcting future cultivation. - A riseot from eignt to ten shillings a quarter in th English mar ket makes all the difference. But, in spite of the considerations we have mentioned, it is not easy to understand the real nature of the situation. - Speculative exporters would do well to exercise caution. The principle of combination has been recently spr- ading like wildfire in England, and there have not been wanting indications that English farmers are learning some of Its advantages in a quiet way. There has been very little this year of the scramble in which they have heretofore rushed to market simultaneously, directly after har vest, and there is considerable' ground for suspecting a general holding back among them. Last year they had occasion to re gret their former tactics, and until more is known as to tne stock actually in nana. It would be unwise to calculate on anything more than a temporary duration of the pre-ent extreme rates in We-tern Europe. New York Times. Praying for a Husband. ? A young lady if she would go out and pray three consec utive nights, the Lord would tell her who she would marry. Now it happened that her father had a young man in his employ who had considerable wit and gool humor about hiin. One evening he was out in an apple tree after fruit, when he heard some one praying something line tins : "O. Lord, who may I marry?" The idea popped into Doyle's head (that being the roung man's name) that lie ould have a little sport at her expense. So he snoke in a changed voice and said "Doyle." "No. Lord, not Doyle," cried the aston ished young lady.' "Yes. Doyle or no one," again sounded from the tree top in a sober, hollow voice She arose and entered the house, resolved to trv asrain the next evening. Of course Doyle did not wish to spoil the tun, and so the next evening iouna mm neated in the tree ton. He did not have to wait long before the young husband seeker came and commenced praying in the same way that she did on tne preceuing evening, and received the same answer. The next : evening also found her under the tree plead ing to know her future hu'Dana s name, ana again she heard the answer: Dovle. or no one." She arose feeling satisfied that she must marry Doyle. The next morning she met bim and asked why he did notputon better domes He said that hi) was not able. " Well," said she, " father is rich, and he ! win let you nave tne money." He took that for a pretty good bint. ; bought a new suit of clothes. In a short time he offered his heart and hand and was , accented. Alter theirmarrlago he told her how her ; prayers were answered. If any of the fair readers of this slorv should think of praying for a husband, do : not get under a tree,' or if you do hn sure ! and examine it closely and see if there j any one to answer to it. i A WOMAN named Virtue Tnnoeenl-. ha j been fined iu London for having unjust weignis. i- [From the Dayton Journal.] A Well Behaved Beast—Excitement in Preble County. The people in the northeast part of Preble county, are just now having a sen sation which is hot at all pleasant. Rumors were current for several days last week that a wild animal of large size was prowl ing about in the woods between El Dorado and New Paris. It was alleged that he bad been seen by several persons who de scribed him as about two feet high and from five to eight feet long. . Whether the animal was a panther, catamount, or lynx could not be determined from the descrip tions given, as no one who was near enough to see the varmint was disposed to remain long enough to make a very close inspec tion. One man declared that coming home late, he was followed by some large animal, and hurrying to his house and closing the door, the stranger reared up and looked in at the window, thus affording a lull view of the head, which resembled that of a bull-dog. Another person, while driving along the road about eight o'clock last Sunday morning, saw the creature in the woods about titty yards off, rearing up against a tree, and the brief inspection then made makes tbe length of the animal Irora nose to tip ot tail no less than eight feet. Ot course the party in the buggy was not disposed to tarry long in that neigbor hood, and is not able to give a more definite description than is afforded by the appa rent length of the beast. The tracks made by it resemble those .of a dog, but are larger and more deeply indented in the ground. So well satisfied were the people of the truth of the reports in regard-to tbe pres ence of the animal In4he loeality named, that on Sunday last about five hundred men and Boys,- jrrrrrrd with Tlflesr wermrtne woods hunting for tbe unwelcome visitor. Up to Sunday night, the hunters had been unsuccessful in their search. We understand that the schools In 'the section of country where the animal had been seen, have all been temporarily sus pended, parents being unwilling to expose their children to the danger of meeting It while going to or returning from school. ' We have not learned that any depreda tions upon stock have been committed by this unautbenticated beast, which is sati factory proof that the woods afford him abundant rations, without trespassing up on the her js and flocks ot farmers. An American Vichy. We print in' another column a letter from Gettysburg, giving an account of the remarkable mineral spring discovered at that place at the time ot the great battle, by some wounded soldiers who had dragged themselves away, as they supposed, to die. The remarkable cures that th:s water has made of chronic diseases are, we believe, beyond doubt, and the character of the wa ter, the historic associations of the place and its beautiful scenery seem to promise that Gettysburg will soon become famous as a great American watering place. We would earnestly recommend old Tbad. Stevens, of I'ennsyivania, to take the benefit of these waters at once, an is such a sufferer from chronic diseases that he has been reported two or three times as dying, and they may give him a new lease of life. . He lost his iron works through the events that brought these waters to light, and it would be a fine piece of poetic justice if the wa ters thus tound should give him years of lite worth more than his losses. And even if the waters do not make a complete cure, they will, perhaps, improve his digestion and so sweeten his temper. He should make the trial. JV. T. Herald. An American Vichy. Destruction of Life in Java by Wild Animals. I In the years 1862 and 1863, 269 persons were killed by tigers in Java, 97 by croco diles, and 67 by snakes. The loss of life by tigers seems even to be on the increase, lit tle attention being paid by the Government towards destroying them. A popular su perstition on the part of the natives pre vents their killing a tiger-that has not It self been guilty of devouring a man ; therefore they will not molest the cubs or young of this animal. The offer of a suffi ciently large reward might be an induce ment to some of the American trappers to try their skill on the tiger, and we suspect that a few years ot systematic effort would soon show an abatement ot the plague.
