ALONSO. t/the Edffrtr o/ Ths Trtouni. ■ Wnnotum, W. Vo., JunoJJO.— I There was an oll palnting above the mantelpiece. U was done a great deal better than most oil-paintings ore in people’s parlors. It represented a fine-looking boy with large black eyes and fat rosy cheeks. I looked frotri bis eye's down into those of the little girl standing beside me. t need not bavo asked ber who (bat boy was. There were the same lustrous orbs, and there woro the same Hus telling of warmth of sflcction. But I did ask, "Lizzie, who Is Iball” " Mr. Ernest," she replied in honest wonder, "don’t you know who that is?” " No,” 1 said quietly, but in ferred at- once from her manner that a story bung by tlmt picture, or, perhaps, that there was a wreath of stories all around it, some of them roses, some violets, some "Immortelles.” "Why,” continued Lizzie, and her beautiful IncobccntnA a abode paler, and a tear was on Its wav, her deeper soul being too full to keep It back, it pressed forward nml. filled her eye, shining like the spray of the cascade In the morning sun, “ that’s Alonso, and yon dldu’t know!” "And lie Is dead,” I said, without a question. For 1 know ho won dead,-Lizzie’s face told it, and that tear. After a while she related to me all about him,—yes, after a while, for the meprory of his death plowed up the still waters of her soul, and there was no room for utterance for a while. Alonso had been a child of great promise. He was unusu ally affectionate, ami unusually smart and bright. Uo. had lived when Dio War for the Union was raging, and ho bad caught up ell the enthusiasm of the limes. Wonderful stories were told of his readiness to sacrifice Ids little home comforts for the best of ids country. At one time he had sold all hts playthings for 75 emts to a bigger boy, and insisted on It being given to the wounded in Die hospital. Alasi Alonso was scrofulous.

THE VOICE OE THE PEOPLE. •• -Lottery lllnnks, Tte th* Editor of The Tribune. Chicago, June CO.—Every now and then I see mention made In'your advertising columns of lottery prizes amounting from SIO,OOO to SIOO,- 000 drawn in some distant city by somo un known person. No mention, however, Is made of the 80,000 or 00,000 blanks which drew noth ing, nor of Uio modus operand! by which Uio lottery comnanles and managers crow Immense ly rich out of those blanks. As the lottery business In Chicago Is in a very flourishing con dition, and thousands of dollars go bonce week ly to Kentucky and Louisiana, soma return In the shave of prizes ought to bo made to this locality for so large an outlay. I challenge the thirty or more agents of lottery companies to this city to prove that any prizes worth men tioning have ever been paid to their poor, de luded patrons within Uio last llvo years. . Hod any .valuable prizes been paid at any time the .Southern lottery companies would only hare been too glad to announce Die fact. ** That Suggestion to neaconsQold. To the liiiilar oj The Tribune.

The Doendenco of Poetry. . ■i'o (ft! Editor of T hr Tribune. , Chicago, Juno 27.—A noticeable feature of the literature to-day Is 'the prevalence—one might say tho universality—of metrical compo sition. Every cross-road bus its bard, and quite likely some thousands of our young men mid maidens ore essaying to write poetry, who, for tho roost unit, are lamentably deficient la the King’s English, ami whoso efforts are sug gest! vu of* tho couplets in nursery rhymes, though lacking tho nolut ami piquancy of Moth er Uoo.se. But, although poetry of tho bond orgau sort, ground to order hy love-lorn misses, or hurdlings in Incipient manhood, lilts tho pages of tho newspapers. It is seldom that one meets with a poem that has iho pith and accent of the divine an. Even our leading monthlies, which It would bo supposed might select a garniture of varto for their more solid pages, not Infre quently give us versos only equaled in the naverly Mayasint or tho Chicago Times. As an tnstunculu point let us notice “Even lug” iu tho current number of Scribner's. The bard evidently sat down, llko, Mark Twain’s “ I’oet lariat,” to cudgel hU brain foe a rhyme. Hoar him:' Lust with far murmurs on the hill, Thu holler's amorous voice Is still: Nor ilocic nmv food thu meadow mere, And closed U thu colter’s dour. Our poet seems tu feel that be gets but a poor send-off with bln “ amorous” heifer, nor does he seem aura that tho “ meadow more” and tho “cotter’s door” have, except remotely, apostle suggestion; so ho tackles thu second Btsnzo,— adhering to bis bovine proclivities. However, by setting Up the “honest ox” tbusly: Cmabrog*. beneath benignant tresa, Tho honest ox U at hta tuso; While, overhead, Iho knowing fowl Avoids Ihsvttlls of ihsewt.

SnxooroAK, June 25.—The tender and elo quent words pronoanccd by Col. Ingorsoll while standing beside the coflln containing the clay of his late brother have given many ot tbe cisy believers in the so-called Evangelical faith a hope that the great free-thinker and frcc-Ulkcr hnd recanted the grit and kernel of Ids Infidel position. They think they eco In these few words of bis—" In thqjilght of death hope sees a star, and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing flfoof that Mr. Ingorsoll accepts the religious theory of au* immortal existence, and that winged beings, In substantial form,—ln habitants of a Heavenly sphere,—hover over the forms of our departing dead, and bear (heir souls n>f ay—somewhere; ami they forthwith proceed to class the world-renowned infidel to dogmatic theology as one of the at least balf-convcrtod host of the so-called elect,—a sort of Incipient at. Baal. This assumption of a recantation Involved In his tender words grows largely out of Imputing to him grosser views than ho over avowed to my knowledge. It assumes that he treats tlm idea of a supremo power, uud the possibility of a conscious existence ot tlio mind in Uio be yond, with the same contempt he does the dog matic religious villainies that be knows are illogical, unreasonable, nml false, when the truth Is, os 1 understand him, ho puts no trust in protended revelations Unit delude men into believing things proved that are simply un knowable. Infidel as be is, problematical as lie may bold it is that tlicro Is a imrsounl, tangible God. mul that cverv human soul retains i‘s In dividuality mid conscious existence forever and forever, yet where Is the phrase of his that flatlv dentes this nud accepts atheism In Its most hideous sense, or that pours the same contempt ou the Idea of Immortality that he feels for the theologian who transforms the common Father into the fiend He would bo to sanc tion the crimes the so-called sacred text Imnutcs to lllml Ibo truth is. X opine, that Mr. Ingcr soil, instead of taking this ultra atheistic ground, ami denying the possibility of a here after, bos simply said he did uot know: and that no man knows, or over did; ami tlmt “from the voiceless lips ot unrcplybig dead there comes no word.” ■» Having no such gross views as bare been thoughtlessly or maliciously ascribed to him, he could not recant views he never cherished; and so those who well know what a bravo, tender, and true man ho is, Instead ot seeing any change of base In a fundamental sense, see but the out gushlng of bis great heart whou a loved brother "fell Into that dreamless sleep tlmt kissed down his eyelids still.” Co). Ingersoll fights existing shams, and fiends, and bolls. Ho pours upon these bis un sparing scorn; but for timeout that.yearns to clasp and commune with a kindred soul, that "In the night of death sees a star,” and hopes that Immortality is not alt a dream, or a phantom horn of man’s conceit and pride, ho must have, and 1 believe ever had, a sincere respect. It Is not accessary for n man to quit-claim the next to universal hope "Hint somehow, some where, meet we must,” that ho may fitly express his detestation views that storm his reason. y In giving the lost words of hie brother, "I am better now,” and in saving, "Let us believe, in spile of doubts and dogmas, and tears and fears, that these dear words are true of all the count less dead,” instead of Indorsing, Indirectly, the generally-accepted tenets of the evangelical world, ho really punctured the Calvlnlstlc view of the fate of nearly all the race,—for oven an nihilation Is “butter” than u Calvlnlstlc bell; nml some would even prefer it to an ultra or thodox heaven that puts nearly all our loved ones in the other place. Wu shall bear tho sharp twang of tho same tried steel—when wo hear anything—from Coi. inecrsoll. J. A. Smith. “Von Llo, You Villain, Tou Lie!"—A Little History for Luohrymary “California" und Ulucdlng * ‘ Henry. *’ To the Editor of The Trtfturw. * Bloomington, 111.,Juno 125.—“ Whom tho cods wish to dustroy they first make mad.” this saying will readily apply to your last wick’s correspondent, “California,” who said 1 am “untruthful, unmanly, and lunjust,” and thereby quietly says that lam a liar, if a man should toll mo that 1 lied, I should know what to do. Rut, when a woman lays aside tho ermine of womanhood and tells mo that I lie, I, as a gentleman, have no recourse, agd pass tho Insult without reply. If “California ” persists lu calling mo a liar, I shall petition Ben Butler to reissue hU famous Now Orleans mil itary order for thu benefit of those females who Insulted bis soldiers, and then try to moke an application for her benefit. In closing her article, “California” ssyt that she lias tried “to kcop a tight rein on my [herj writing hijnd.” A “tight rein,” In deed! “Tight” lu tho sense of being drunk) “ Henry ” and she have written of “seeing chil dren torn from their mothers, and, shrieking and screaming, borne away,'white thu mother, vainly struggling for them, was left almost dead upon tho floor.” They claim this agony of separation was caused by laws made by man. It seems to me that women have also uad a little to do lu causing agonizing cries of tra duced women aud stolen children. There was ft time wheu three millions of slaves were held In homings In this country. Then children Indeed wore torn from tho con vulsive grasp of half-crazed slave mothers. 'Hie daughter Just blooming Into woman hood was sold, and her chastity sold with her. Tears, and sobs, and heart-breakings, ami crush ed lives went for nothing. Who was the molhcr of this monster of African slavery! Who fed It with bor own hands) It was no other person age than Queen Elizabeth,- a woman, tool Under her supervision the African slave-trade was planted, took root, and crow.'* filio watered It, she pruned this poisonous tree, and it flour lulled under her care. The cries of outraged slave-women, thu ravished chastity of slave-girls lust budding Into womanhood, thu woo of gray haired men and women, all stilt speak against Ihe " deep damnation of their taking off" by Queen Elizabeth,—a woman, not a man. Tho foundation of our laws uumo from England, which has been ruled bv women wbo could have remodeled these laws of which “Csllfornla" and “Henry" carp aud prate about, Just as well as male rulers. Look at other fetnslo nllcr*. Cathariuo uf Russia gave her affections tu her Uciicrals and corrupted thu whole Turkish army “by wavs that were dark aud tricks that were valu.” Rho grossly and outrageously violated International lawli: tho “ Partition of Poland,” assisted by tho Empress, Queen Maria Theresa. These two became nothing but robbers. “ California " says, “1 would never yield wy child to any one.” That before she would give her child to her husband by decree of tho law. “I would swear It was not my husband's.” That is to say, she would make her child u bastard, and damn him to bo an outcast lor life. Indeed. Mr. Editor, can It be possible that “California” is a woman! Can it bu that a mother would bastardize her child and swear, adultery upon herself, lu order to evade the dictates of law! Such senti ment Is bastard self-love, vicious of Itself, pro ductive oi crime, and comporiable with the doc trine of the womau-anffrugliis. Then shn says thu wonmo-suirraglsts “raiso and have raised sons and daughters to makit their parents happy.” ‘‘liaised” is pretty good. That Is thp trouble—thev “raise” their children, but do not “bring them up.” The Western farmers raise tygs»sheets «w» and props, but most of them “bring up” their chil dren. Now, J insist, and hare insisted, tlmt the woman-suffragists coose from waging war upon conserving customs, femain at homo, “bring up” thrlr children, And "raise” them no long er, thereby bringing about a belter state of so ciety. "California” further says: "1 hsro known some husbands who preferred taking the name of their wife, and have done so bv special Act.” Well, that Information is decidedly refreshing Duse sultry Juno days. Any husband acting thus must Ihj a turns natures, a freak of Nature. I can find fur such a husband a permanent sllualloji with Bernutn at a paying safari’. Thns taking his wife’s maiden name would stab with Zululondic Assegais the last Trinco imperial In the legitimate lino of his ancestry, and thereby obliimto the genealogy of his family. Buck a husband would lose his pedigree mid fall limp In society u gyneclan avorlement. Bitch teachings ns "California” has set forth would even make Dennis Kearqcr, (n unmiti gated disgust, sneak back Into .his kennel of yelping limmen. My zooluffknl studies for the last ten years have been m the line of the blmann, especially the wonmn-suiTragists, and i assure " Cali fornia” 1 know them well—know ten to her one—l kudw them too well.

Chicago, June 27.—1 have noticed several articles published In the papers as to the toler ation and movements ot certain foreign military organization ot this city, and It seems to mo that some energetic action should be taken by the police and military authorities to prevent a repetition of the Silver-Leaf Grove tragedy. There are a number. of so-called military organizations that are a menace to the peace and dignity of the people of the United Stoics, assuming os they do command and authority, when they havo no more right so to do than any other body of men who arm themselves with the Intention ot committing a lelony or misdemeanor; and, indeed, it can be very seriously questioned bow many of the SocfslUts nml Communists who parade onr streets with arms are really citizens of the United States. I think very few of them are naturalized and speak or understand tbe American language. If such Is the fact, ami it seems to be generally conceded, then, 1 say. It Is high time Ibis thing was stopped at once, so that we may not bare any more shedding of human blood by the In discriminate shooting down and slaughter of uur citizens as ut Sllvor-Lcaf Grove. The Indiscriminate slaughter of our citizens nt Silver-Leaf Grove, It may reasonably be pre dicted, is only Die commencement of what mar bo a very serious conflict nt no distant day, if tbls foreign element of Socialism It allowed to carry arms nml parade on streets. 'Thu lives of our citizens wilt thus be placed entirely hi their bands, and men will be shot down nt the will and pleasure of armed mobs whenever any sup posed grievance occurs, and Die liberty of our citizens, so highly prized by all, will bo a thing of the past, while anarchy, rapine, and murder ! will be the moral civil condition of the future. These military organizations are gotten up for political purposes, to show (he strength of this foreign Socialistic element, whose speeches are, os a universal rule, threats and InDiuidatlons delivered In a foreign tongue to audiences com posed of men who ao not understand the lan guage of our country, and com Dosed of Die out casts of the land of their nativity. Not know ing or understanding the English language, their leaders have them entirely tin ier their control, nnd they ore at their bidding, said lead ers not hesitating to tell them that it is uot only tbelr duty, but their right to treat the laws of this country with contempt and defiance, and that, if in any way molested by Die officers of the law, to mur derously shoot them like dogs. If this Is not treason, I would lino to be informed as to what treason nnd rebellion constat of. I would suggest tlmt a vigorous prosecution ho commenced against Uio members of these foreign societies who make seditious threats against the good order nud government of tills country; ami l think It Is the duty of the officers of thu Government, uud all good citizens, upon hearing incendiary speeches, to bring Die same under tbo notice of tho United States Grand Jurv, and It Is then to be hoped that body will discharge their duty faithfully and fearlessly by Indicting them fur treason, the punishment of which should be promptly moled out to ull sue!;, violators of law. A few veara’ confinement In our State Peni tentiary will Imveumost beneficial and wholesome tilled with tbls class of law-breakers, uud they should be taught the lesson that It Is Die duty of every man. whether alien or citizen, to obuy the laws nnd respect them, or else must bo made to take the alternative: penal Institutions being built solely for the protection of citizens agnlust Just such persons. The Communists’ and Socialists’ motto is that every rich man should elmro bis wealth with the poor,—ull bo on the same equality,—and to shed human blood to carry out this motto. The good people of Chicago have not forgot ten the riot which occurred obout two yenraago, in which several fnltnfal and efllclent police olfl ccrs lust their lives, uml others were dangerous ly wounded, In tho discharge of their public duty os oillcera of the law, the faithful per formance of which all good citizens relied on, Tho mob rallied from one section to the other, ready to commit any unlawful act, from rob* horv to murder, and the police force was detail ed under the clmrgu of experienced, plucky, efilcicnt, and determined olliccrs, each allotted u small squad of men, merely a handful com pared to the contending forces of tho mob. Jt go. happened that ex-Sergt Brennan was sent out In the disturbed district, lilcu his' brother olliccrs, where ho met tho rioters holding high carnival uml In full blast. Bren nan, equal to tho emergency, lull of his usual pluck ami courage. tried to disperse the rioters, wpo were violating law and public decency and committing all kinds of depredations; it became a huml-to-muid conflict; it became u question, and u very serious one too, as to whether or not mob violence would predominate or oar laws bu respected. Wo owe to those olllcora who had charge of the police at that critical period adobe of gratitude, and wo hope that If their services should be called into requisition on n llko occa sion they will discharge their duty In a like manner,—bo equal to the emergency id the preservation of the lives and property of our citizens, Irrespective of any threats which have been tnsuo hv the Communists and Socialists that they will eventually get them off the force; in the prompt and faithful discharge of their duty they tuny rest assured they will receive tho thanks of all good and law-abiding citizens of Chicago.

The Idea that port wine is a strictly teetotal leverage seems to be held with curious firmness by the lower classes in England. This singular notion leads those who entertain u to consume port wine, or thu decoctluu which goes by that name, with great freedom; audit consequently pluvs an Important part lu police court cases. A lew days ago a man, who figured In Liverpool os prosecutor in a charge of robbery against a woman, told the magistrate that bo was a tee totaler.

BAD LITTLE SPARROWS. IFni/Unufon TTerM. Tlie aparrow controversy now raging between two eminent divines, Dr. KlHott Cones, of this dty, and Dr. Thomat M. Brewer, of Boston, is the absorbing topic of conversation at the Na tlonal Capital. A crowd of several hundred persons gathered in front of the Shepherd Building, ot the corner of Twelfth street and Pennsylvania avenue, to witness a sparrow-light which occurred the other dnv. The birds fought desperately, unmindful of (he throng who witnessed the shameful ex hibition, fluttering about among Die feet ot the' spectators in deadly combat, flying dp und clinching in the air, then falling heavily to the ground, till one ot them was killed outright in the midst of our Christian community. The sparrows for miles around were attracted by the holse, until it was estimated that not less tnan 30,000 of the birds wero perched upon the neighboring trees and roots, making & fearful uproar. The police seemed perfectly paralyzed, though present in large force. Several street-cars were thrown oil the track and the horses dashed madly down the avenue. The hoodlums yelled “Go it Bools,” 11 Hit him again,” "Sock it to him, Rooster,” and used other slang expressions of equally objectionable character. Ladies who were pissing said, " 0 dear, won’t the poor llttlo thing# hurt each other!” and then hurried on. looking very hard ahead, os'if not sure whether the bird# were really lighting or not. The oldest Inhabitant of the District remarked Unit ho had never seen anything like it before in tits life. The brutality of the si cetaclo wus indeed extreme. Everybody wanted to know wbatltwas about. All that could be teamed at the lime was. that tin* trouble began about a nest from which one of Ujc birds lind tried to eject the other, np parenttval the instigation «of a third sparrow, who had unobtrusively watched the light. But Uie whole affair tins since leaked out, notwith standing the efforts of interested parlies to hush It up. There was a woman In the ease, ol course. It seems that Mr. and Mrs. Bob Sparrow, whose high social position makes the scandal worse, took apartments In one of the scroll cor nice# on the Twelfth street side of the building, on their return from a short honeymoon in Baltimore. But Mrs. Bob was not satisfied with the locution. She wanted a particular cornice on die avenue side, it would be more fashion able, alio said, and besides, the children needed tbo BUO. “ But wa haven’t pot any children,” blurted Mr. Huh, who was averse to moving. *'Men arc so stupid 1 ” And she fussed about so prettily, that Mr. Bob scratched his car, mid went off io see about It, looking very sheepish. But ho found a certain Capt. Jack Sparrow had just taken the cornice Mrs. Bob wanted. Ho never liked Jack,—in fact, some turly things had reached him about the way Vli.it Mrs. 800 bod carried ou with the Captain the season before. She was known to have been nmdly In love will)-lack: some of her beat friends admitted she* hud been imprudent, to say tlie least, mid nil said they were clod she bad settled down, even if she uad to give up the army to marry a member of Congress. The Hon. Mr. Boh also rcllccted that he Imd better Lave a row with Jack than take his chances of a domestic scene. So ho picked a quarrel at once. Angrv words ensued. Both became much excited. Finally, Mr. Bob swore that (£ Jack didn’t vacate, bo would take him by the nano of the nock and eject him. Jack retorted that Mr. Bob could go to Texas or elsewhere, and cast violent asper sions ou his maternal anccstrr. This was too much, and Mr. Bob proceeded lo tarry bis threat into execution. A lively tussle ensued, but Jack bad tbe advantage of position, and held It. .Mr. Bob went back to his wife too hot and angry to mind what she might say. He was a thoroughly excited sparrow. Mrs. Bob had watched the whole performance, and met her lord with a rosy smile. “ How kind of von to secure that nice cornice for your little wlfcy,” she said; “you are al ways so thougbitui. But what baa happened, Jovet” she added with no air of concern; “ you look unhappy; don’t you like that cornlcol” u D—n the cornice and him tool” - “ o husband I such language I To whom do you refer!” “ Why, that fellow Jack. He’s token the premises, mid, though I asked him, as a gentle man might, if bo would not move to oblige & lady, he politely hut lirmlv declined.” “ How uukindi” suld Madame, thinking that Jack might have moved to oblige her. Then she rustled her feathers, and said sharply: “ Well, why didn’t vou tell him bo must go:” “ 1 did tell him so, nud he wouldn’t.” “ Welli what did you do then!” “ Fact is, Mrs, Bob, 1 * ami then he owned op that he bud tried to out him out, but couldn’t; explaining elaborately how St was that he hud been unsuccessful, and adding that ho would “lam Che lights out of the cuss’’—that was his language—lf bo over caught him out of his bole. Mrs. Bub reflected a moment; then her face brightened. “ Would you parralt mo to speok to hlmtuvsclfl” she asked timidly. “I—l—- think I used to know him slightly. But if he should come out, you wouldn’t assault him and dnvo him away, would you 1 That would bo dreadful; you might be hurt! ” “ Fsbaw I What do you tako me lor I I can lick a regiment like him. Just get him out once and I’ll bounce him like a thousand of brick!” “ Well, I’ll see him about It. But pleaso don’t be rash; I wouldn’t bovo Anything hap pen to you tor tho world.” 80 saving, she smoothed down her plumage, put on her innocence, mid Hew down to a nar row window-ledge about a yard from (he cornice, whore she hopped about and twittered so sweetly that Jock soon poked, his head out to see who it was. “O lal Excuse tn«*. I did not know you were there, Onpt. Jack,” she said, in a Butter of surprise, “ 1 must go right awnv 1 ” “0 no I Don’t go—stay.” said Jack: for al though ho was sore-headed over the jato un pleasantness, bo remembered tho lime whan he used to call her his little tootsy-wootsy, and how sho used to tell him be was too bad for any thing. “1 must,” sho replied firmly. “I dare not star. Wo might bu observed, and the world, you know, la cruel and censorious, and will not believe In pare, disinterested friendship between sparrows In our positions. Besides, what If my husband ” “Bother your husband I Aro you fond of him I” “Of course; though ho treats me shamefully, and says such cruel things sometimes.” “Dues lief—the brute. What docs he say! ” “Whyhe says he wouldn’t trust mo out of his sight,” replied Mrs. Bob, hanging her bead while a tear glistened In her eye. “ll’m,” said Jack, become interested In tho sad avowal of her domestic infelicity, and re calling the times when bu mid Mr. Bob bad ex changed their respective views of the sex; “where Is ho nowf” “Down at the Cspltol, trying to got his little bill through Congress,” she answered promptly. “Then, suppose we take a fly up towards tho President’*!” suggested the logical Jack. “Odearl I couldn’t think of such * thing! What would people say! i «ewr go out with gentlemen now.” “Wlmt—never!” “Well—hardly over.” Then they both laughed, though neither know why, and aho turned to go. “ Walt a minute,” urged Jack; “1 want to tell von something.” “WbatlsUl” “Lot mo whisper Itl u "Yea, If you’ll bo quick. Though there's scarcely room hero for two. Will you promise not to take advantage of my entirely ooprotecl etl situation I" Cant. Jack promised, and in a moment drop* Kd flown beside her. Then she gave an agon* >d shrieks “Flv! Oflyl It Is—lt fs—ray husband 1” For Mr. hob pounced on the sou of Mars Id an instant. Then II was that ensued the terrific combat we have already faintly described. Mrs. Dob, In her terror, scarce knowing wbat she did, flowdlrccllv Into the cornice Capt. Jack bad left, which commanded a view of the whole Held, liar feelings during the struggle succeeded each other rapidly. In fact, they may bo said to have followed the chances of war. She was too brave a woman after all, nut to accept the results with fortitude, whatever It might ho—too true a woman, at heart to see with Indifference that her husband was getting beaten. It occurred to her that Capt. Jack never appeared to bettor advantage in bis ILfo—it quite brought up old times. When, at last. she s»w her own Doo’agorv body stretched lifeless on the pave ment, shs wept copiously; bat a strange, now thrill shot like lightning from a cloudless sky through her heaving breast, ami seemed to give her strength to bear It alt Bbo knew that she must resume the burden of Ilfs,—and she would try and do so, U Jack—dear Jack—the only sparrow she bud ever really loved—would share thu loud ot sorrow. Forcing down her choking subs, she braced herself to meet her fate, and nearly recovered bur composure. Dut -when Jack—her owu true Jack—came flying UP all Soru aua Woofly, it wm tuu wuUi fur her. Bbe fainted flt Hip sight, nrxl would have fallen ami beert dasbftd -to pforcs, had lie not caught her under his strong, brave wlitj/. When she came to, she spoke, scarce knowing what she satdMhc strain upon her hod boon to prcai, tlml her mjud icemed to wander. But she told him nil I and then it was that. he learned how she had always him—how cruel fato had come between—amir how ahe could scarcely realise (hat his own act had made her a widow. She would *o at once Co hhr desolated homo, and weep away the remnaut of her unhappy life. 1 . . What could the gallant Captain do bat com* fort her! He did It with each eacccas that he astonished himself, accustomed as he waste, to triumph over the weakness of aparrowa. The remainder of the day was spent tn fixing up the cornice to suit Mrs. Jack. Next morning, she allowed nlm, with pardonable pride, a sweet pretty thing sho had just found. Jack waa rather surprised, but mild nothing, reflect*' Ing that It was a wise sparrow who knows hli own eggs. Next day there was another. Jack said nothing. The third day there were three. Jack kept still. The fourth day saw four. Jack merely whistled. Whan the ‘fifth day bronchi five, ho went to his office, saying be should not ho borne to dinner. Ou the night of the sixth, with another, he staid very late at the Cosmos Club, and wa* observed lodrimc heavily. At the end of the week, with seren well-aprlnga in the house, and no prospect that the deluge was over, he told Mrs. Jack that be had a tele* ; (rram that bis aged parents were not expected to live, and that bo must take the next train (or New York. . When the fact of his shameful desertion could no longer bo concealed, the disconsolate Mrs. Jack, thus doubly widowed, brought suit for dl vorce; mid—but wbal happened next remains to be told. . THE COURTS. A Suit on a Towpath—Record of Judgments, New Suits, Kte. Judge Drummond waa engaged yesterday lo hearing the Indiana case ol Mason ys. The Lake Erlo Sc Southwestern Railway Company, Involv ing n rather Interesting question. The Erie & Wabash Canal In Indiana was sold under an or* der of (he Circuit Court of the Dolled Stales in 1870, and a man by itao name ol Dukes pur chased a portion of the canal, the towpnth of which the defendant bad taken possession in 1871 slid constructed upon it a line of # railway. The defendant had given .a mortgage on Its road, including that part which ran over the tow path of the canal purchased by Dukes, and a blit to foreclose the same was Hied in the Circuit Court of the Untied States for the District of Indiana, and the road was sold. Dukes sub sequently came In and filed a petition to intervene for his interest, . claiming that be was the owner of that portion of the tow path which bo had purchased at the sate, and, though the canal bad been abandoned by the State, that ho had acquired a valid title. This was resisted on the part of the defendant, Us counsel claiming that in consequence of the abandonment of the canal by tho State what ever igtcf&t the State had acquired In the property returned to the abutting owners of tbo property on the canal. This question, and also the amount of daioages which had been allowed by the Master, wero the two questions discussed before the Court, upon which the decision was reserved. It should be added Hint the Stale owned the canal, nml had acquired from the owners ot property either an easement, or the title la fee simple, uml whether one or the other was a question discussed in the case; and It was under a claim ot the creditors ut the canal that it was sold os stated shore. It should also bo mentioned that when Uie defendant, the railway company, took pos session ot the tow-path. It made no compensa tion either to the State or to the claimants ot the canal for the right of way. DIVORCES.
