[.Entered at the Postoffico Alexandria, Virgin is, as socond-cl-.ss matter.] THE WOMAN IN THE CASE. Mr. Frank Ma'ti.ews, formerly of Miuichesicr, but now of Lyncbburg, Va., evidently thinks be has been gro.s-!y wronged, und be has tr.keD steps toward wreaking vengeance upon a comely woman with attractive hcar iug, who, be thinks, playe 1 him false straight through iu a clever role. It will be remembered by renders of the Times that Mr. Matthews was be? fore the police court not lout: ago, charged with threatening to do bodily harm to Mrs. Kate McFarland, the woman in the case. The te-timony was d vclopcd that Mr. Matthews weut out to the wilds of Dakota to secure a di vorce from his wife, and while there met Mrs. McFarland, who. it seems, was in that section ol the country for the purpose of securing a divorc i from her husband, there being peculiarities in the divorce laws of Dakoiu. Mrs. McFarland is a native of Manchester. She is said to be quite an attractive v\oma:i of s'riking personality. She soon succeeded in wielding a powerful influence upon Mr. Matthews, aod persuaded bim to >e!l out bis effects and return to Virginia with her. Not long after ihey returned to the "sacred soil." it became evident that Mrs. McFarland wns growing tired of her latest acquisition. The result wt.s that tbe lovers had a falling out, and Mr. Mathews's ardor got the best ol him to the extent that he became so persistent in his efforts to see Mrs. Mc? Farland that she had him aricsted, aud some rath r spicy readin; got in? to the papers on the subject. Mrs. McFarland is ^:ill a familiar figure on the streets of Mauernster, and of late has figured as the her? oine of a sensational publication in the shape of a pamphlet of some thirty or forty pages, gotten out by the man who claims to be influenced in the mat? ter solely by the purpose of showing to the world what kind of a woman she is who played him false. The pam? phlet is entitled "A Parody on Love; or a Modern Siren,'' and contains the photographs of .Mr. Matthews, the author, and tbe woman in the case. A large number of them have been circu? lated, and I have heard it stated that they make fairly good reading for peo? ple of a sensational turn of mind. The pamphlet purports to give the history of the romantic relations existing be? tween the author aud the woman, from the time they met ttutil she final? ly threw him over for purposes of her own. It contains copies of her love letters from which it would appear that t he couple were quite fond of etch other. It is claimed by the author that he spent from $6,000 to $8,000 on the woman within nine months, and be cltdms that he was followed all over the country by her. Mr. Matthews thinks he was very badly treated by the woman who fig? ures as the heroine of his publication. ?Richmond Times. Will of Millionaire Stevens.? The will of the late .Tohu Stevens, of Hoboken, N. V., was filed in the Hud? son county Surrogate's office yesterday. The estate amounts to $20,000,000. Among the bequests is $20,000 to Trin? ity church, in Hoboken. to wipe out n debt of $14,000 on the church and leave a fund of $6,000. After some minor be quests the remainder of the estate is equally divided between the widow, Mrs. Mary M. Stevens, and the s >n. John Stevens. Among the small gifts are$5,000 to Lela B. Smith, of Berry ville, Va., and $2,500 each to Burrell McGuire, a brother iu-law, and Mrs. Mamie McGuire, a sister-in-law. The widow is uamed as executrix, and Col. A. E. Stevens, a brother, and Palmer Campbell, are the executors. The will is dated January I, 1S93. MlLITIA.?Tho field officers of the First Brigade Virginia Infantry met in Bichmond yesterday afternoon for the third time to elect a brigadier general. At the last meet? ing Lieutenant Colonel Pole, of the Second Regiment, had determined to change his vote from Nash to Nalle. but Colonel Nalle's friends did not know this and, upon their motion, the meeting adjourned without ac? tion. It was then believed that at tho nest meeting Colonel Nalle would be elected on the first ballot, but a t .Icghun was received yesterday from Warronton, saying that Colo? nel Gaines, of the Third Regiment, was sick in bed and could not attend. Gaint s's absence left Colonel Nalle still with only six votes. It was thought at one time that Colonel Nash wou'd retire, but his friends insisted o*j keep? ing bim in the race and so tho matter stood on tho first ballot: Nalle, G: Nash. 5.
