from Callao, Peru, to his father, Andrew Ander

we select the following: Leaving N. Y., be went
to Aspinwall, thence to Panama, thence to Pay
ta, "the oldest town," he says, "in South Ameri-
ca;" thence to Callao, where they celebrated Ju
ly 4. Tnere were 24 other men-of-war in the
harbor, all of which fired a salute of 21 guns at
noon. At Callao he was honorably recommend,
ed to Washington by his captain, being one of
three who jumped overboard to save "a captain
of the foretop" who had fallen from the foretop
striking on his side. The ship afterward return
ed to Panama to conduct the new minister to
Callao; and be expects soon to go to San Fran

A Soft Coal Jlurner.
A sort coal base burner bas beeu the most se
rious problem stove maker have had to coutend
with for years. Hundreds of styles have been
' made, but few can be called successes. Probably
the "Garland tor soft coal" is m near perfection
as a soft coal base burner can bo made. It can
bo legulated perfectly, and every device to pre.
vent caking of coal when heated, and all guards
against clogging up of flues, magazine, tc.,
have been put on the stove. Messrs. Booth A
Kendall, who alone sell it here, are satisfied it
can be recommended, their very Imperfect tent
of it having convinced them it Is the best they
have seen, and as far as our observation goes we
agree with them. As one of them is now in ope
ration at their store, our readers, the vast major-
ity of whom burn soft coal, should examine its

The marriage of Miss Fannie Hopkins, of this
city, to Mr. Rubt A. Warner, of Wilmington, III.,
took place at the Congregational church, In this
city, on Thurduy lust ut eleven o'clock a. m. Hev
eral huidrd witnesses were present Including fl
number of guests from abroad. The procession
consisted of the ushers, Dr. Ryburn, Prof. Web.
ster, Messrs. Jas. Milllgau, E. G. Osman, Geo. L.
Liudley, and R. C. Hltt; the bride on the arm of
her father, the groom and the bride's aunt, all of
whom stood through the ceremony, by Rev. T.
J. Volentine. The bric"e wore a sapphire blue
velvet walking dress.
The reception took place at the residence on
Lafayette street, opposite Washington square
between 11:30 and 1 o'clock, during which hours
some 50 or more friends appeared to extend their
congratulations. About 12 o'clock refreshments
were served. The bridal gifts wero numerous
and both beautiful aud rich.
Mr. aud Mrs. Warner left the city at 2:28 p. m
for a short bridal tour through the northwest,
previous to going to the home in Wilmington
where Mr. W. Is engaged In the boot and shoe
business. Mrs. Warner carries with her to her
new home the best wishes of the people of Otta
wa. In her circle of friends will be decidedly
missed her good humor, lively spirits, und above
all her energy In all good works for all church
and charitable purposes.
The news comes of the marriage, at the resi
dence of Major C. Jones, Buffalo, N. Y., by Rev.
Geo. R. Stevens, of John Pynchnn and Julia
Thorne, youngest daughter of the late Richard
Thorne, of this city. Mrs. Pynchon is well re
membered by a host of friends In this city, who
join in the congratulations. Mr. and Mrs. Pyn
chon will reside in Chicago we understand.
Spencer has been receiving more new goods
this week: more new shoes for girls, more now

On page 15, R. O. City of Ottawa, 1877, It is
provided that the mayor shall certify to the treas
urer a list of bills ordered paid by the council be
fore such bills may be paid by the treasurer.
This plan was adopted as a check on the clerk,
whose power before that to draw orders was un
limited. Tho mayor, however, takes it to mean
an opportunity for him to prevent the payment
of bills ordered paid by the council. On Tuesdny
evening last tho council paid the bill of Mr.
Pease, of about 11,400 balance due on the CVs
st. culvert Tho bill was unquestioned; con
formed to the contract, and was in accordance
with the report of the city engineer. No one ob
jected to it. But the mayor refused to certify
that it had been audited. The mayor holds the
street and alley committee had let the contract
without authority. The record shows they were
given power to act. Boiled down, the facts are
the committee and the mayor don't "hitch," and
the mayor is in for annoying them. Tho ques
tion seems to be whether the mayor has any
power over audited bills. The ordinance referred
to doesn't appear to give him any. However,
tho bill isn't paid, and a mandamus suit seems
to be the next step In the fight.

Messrs. A. F. and W. W. Dunavan, under the

these gentlemen have long been Interested in
this factory In all capacities, so that the high
reputation of the factory will be maintained. The
"F. R. H.C. M. Co." collars, nets, Ac., have
grown into public favor on their merits, and their
factory is now one of the largest of the kind In
Illinois. Under the new ownership we expect to
see the business still further increased.
