- A Doubls MuiDsa tx Kiw Toax A party
of three young men from Etoput, Ulster Co.,
X. T., two brothers and their friend, took a
sail in an ice boat on the river, a day or two
since. On arriving opposite Port Ewen they
fastened the boat to tbe dock and went into a
tavern to drink. While there three Irishman,
residing In Port Ewen, took possesalon of the
boat and sailed around. One of the brothon,
seeing them in the middle of the river, went
ti them and ordered them out. Angry words
tniuod, whan the young man seised the tiller
and threatened to drive them out, when one of
the Irishmen drew a knife and stabbed blm In
the breast, Inflicting a mortal wound. The
whole was witnessed from the shore by the
remaining brother and hie friend, when both
rushed to the assistance of the injured man.
On arriving where he lay, they found him in

men, swearing vengeanoe. On arriving at the
boat, one of the Irishman tolled the tiller and
struck the friend of the brothers a terrible blow
upon the head, and he fall insensible upon
the ice.. He wag alive at hut aoeounts, but

Have ye lustily clapped?" "Oh lyes, yes,
Monsieur Mareohal," ting oat in chorus the

If they can't show split gloves he gives them
a severe homily, and ther ran great risk of
being black-balled when the next new piece it
given. - A toed many lorettes are always to be
aeea at uV Dumae'a "Ant performances,1'
partly because' they are teen at every snob
tpeotMle, for they have inch powerful "pro

aaothor reason: M. Dttavaa hold that the true
way to make the "first performances" suceesa
ful is to UMhe theater with at many sensitive,
nervous people as possible, for an Impression
is more easily made upon them. Hence he

London, February 4. The Morning bit,
which has the credit of being the organ of
Lord Palmerston, has a conapiououa editorial
upon the poiioy of England and Franoe on the
Italian question. It says: "We announced at
the beginning of the year that a virtual alll
anoe had been effected between England and
France for the settlement of Italian affairs.
We expressly stated that the two Government
bound themselves by no treaties, but their
agreement was the result of the force of cir
cumstances and the dictation of publlo opin
ion. This alliance, every day drawn closer,
already beglne to produce evident and tangi
ble consequenoes. It is now formally deter
mined that no Intervention shall take place In
Italy and the people shall be left to their own
devices. It is therefore agreed that the States
of Central Italy shall dispose of themselves.
Freah elections are to be held, and the Assem
blies resulting from the popular choloe are to
decree the annexation of their eonatltuentt to
the Sardinian Kingdom. - The Frenoh troops
are to be withdrawn from North Italy and
from Rome at an early opportunity. It is no
secret that Austria, having regard to the Wei t
em alliance and her own serious difficulties,
hu given up all hopes of retrieving her posi
tion and infiuenee in Italy, and not only
sheaths her tword, but putt it aside. . An at
tempt will be made to iuduoe her to grant re
forms in Tenetia, of whioh the is still left
The At( adds that the stubbornness ef tbe
Pope bids fair to deprive him of the whole of
hit temporalities. . ... .
Naples groans under a heavier tyranny than
ever, and the cries of Venice are loud enough
to strike our ears, however we may shut them.
The Italian question, then, being likely to
take atitl larger proportions, our best, safeat
and most beneficial poiioy is that of a strict
line of duty, by which at this time last year
we might have prevented war, and by which
we may now guarantee the peace of Europe.
That line is, "No foreign intervention, but
Italy for the Italians." :

A IaWBNsa Bvolmh Catacomb. An im
mense eateoomb can be teen at Bothwall la
the interior of England, near the direct route
from Liverpool to London. It it an immense
vault built of masonry, under a church whioh
dates back apparently for its first erection to
about the year 1150, and contains the skeletons
of thirteen thousand men, probably warriors,
of great site, piled np in regular order, to that
skulls and large bones only appear on tbe out
sides of the piles. The skulla show marks ef
apear and batohet, but no gun-ahot wounds,
and their owners probably All In mortal con
flict anterior to tbe invention ef gunpowder.
The vault waa discovered by acoidant one
hundred and sixty years ago, and has no con
nection with the ohuroh ae far at known; in
fact, the mystery is that there is no historical
evidence nor traditionary legend which throws
any light open the obscurity of its erection.
Be anatomist, historian, ethnologist, an
tiquarian, nor savant of any stripe naa been
able to decide the people even to whom these
bone once belonged. Were they native Sax
ons, or Romans, Danes, Normans, or what?
Nobody has more than guessed. A plausible
theory la that tbey belonged to Danish in
vaders, slain by the Saxont about the year
1000; still this ia but a probability.
Railway Aocidbrtb m Eoton. Calcula
tions, baaed upon the most authentic returns,
have established that since the introduction of
railways into France, there has been only one
traveler killed outright in every 2,000,000 ef
passengers,' and there ha been only one
traveler wounded in every 500,000 passengers.
What wae the ratio of suoh casualties in the
good old times of low traveling? Why, when
the dillgenoes were in use, there waa, on an
average ef tea yean, one killed of every 358,
000 travelers by these vehicle, and one
wounded in 80,000. It teems, also, that in
France, where evsry care is taken to prevent
timid dowagers, nervous rentier, and fast
young people getliog into danger at stations,
tbe reaulte have been lose favorable than ia
Belgium, where one only has bsen killed in
9,000,000 of travelers, and one wounded in
2,000,000. . Against railway acoidenta eco
ought to be able to assure hi life and limba at
vara mall Bgure In &ray. In. Prussia
and the Duohy of Badett there bae been but
one killed in every 17,500,000 of travelers,
and only one wounded in 1,200,000.

the disease has yet found lodgement. The
