passed Close at hand on nearly every side are high
hills, covered with rocks and trees, and in the dis

by Brooklyn and Rockaway steam cars to Carnarsie,
a pleasant fishing village, and great resort of the
piscatorialy inclined. From there Rockaway is
reached by a fine steamer making several trips each
day. This is a most pleasant and inexpensive route
io two of the most popular resorts, and any reader

The pleasures of Coney Island may

Railroading we believe to be as es
sentially a science as vivisection, or sailing a
ship, and if, as is the case of the Atlantic
avenue and Greenwood Road, running from
Fulton Ferry through Furman street, Brook
lyn, it were well understood our local travel
would be attended with much less infelicity
Jihan is now the case. By this road is the
quickest and most pleasant way of reaching
Greenwood Cemetery, running directly to the
gates. It is well managed, and unlike the
Other roads is uninterrupted by drawbridges
or the like.

cotween Ann and Beekman streets.
The books of the Board of Directors of the Boston
Jeace Jubilee show that the total receipt, for the five
flays of the Jubilee amounted to $413,000. The unm
total of the expenses was $312,300. The profits,
therefore, amounted to $101,700. It was agreed by
the Board of Management at the outset of the enter
prise, that if It should prove a success, Mr. Gilmore
•should receive $50,000, and the balance of the profits
should be distributed among the disabled soldiers
And widows and children of deceased soldiers of the
towns and villages of New England, in the propor
tion of their subscriptions to the Jubilee. It was
found that if Mr. Gilmore’s $50,000 were to be paid
out of the SIOI,OOO profits of Jubilee week, the money
left to be divided up among the subscribing towns
would give only a trifling sum to each. The supple
mentary performance of Tuesday next was therefore
arranged as a means of paying Mr. Gilmore without
diminishing the fund for the widows and orphans.
That Mr. Gilmore’s services are estimated at their
true value by the directors, is shown by their pre
sentation to him of a house and lot in Boston valued
at $25,000. This was a free gift over and above the
Stipulated $50,000. No one else has been allowed to
make money by the Jubilee, the subscribers having
received the amounts of their respective subscrip
tions and nothing more. *
The investment proved a poor speculation, as far
as attracting trade to Boston was concerned; no busi
ness of consequence, either in wholesale or retail
trade, was done during the whole week. The dry
goods merchants and leading grocers, who subscribed
•treely to the Jubilee, confess to a total miscalcula
tion of its effects on trade, though they are not dis
appointed in not making money directly from the
Jubilee receipt., as they did not expect nor wish to
do so. The building will probably be allowed to
stand about four months, and will be rented for fairs,
great meetings, Ac., the proceeds of such rental to
oe given to the charitable institutions of the city.
By the terms of the contract, the material of the
building, when taken down, reverts to the builders,
who were paid SBO,OOO for putting it up.
Coroner Flynn early yesterday morning attended
it No. 65 West Houston street, and took the ante
mortem statement of Frank Bunker, who was danger
ously stabbed on Friday night by Wm. Hastings, a
well known thief and rough, in the saloon of the
wounded man, in the basement of that place. Hast
ings and one Dan Coffee had quarreled in the saloon,
end Bunker ejected them. Hastings returned with
a knife, and assaulted Bunker, cutting him in the
abdomen causing a very dangerous wound. Two of
tdie fingers of his left hand were also severed. The
fcillowing is the ante-mortem statement of Bunker:
I am the proprietor ot the liquor saloon at the cor
ner of Houston and Wooster streets, at ten and a
half o’clock, P. M., last night, I was sitting in my
•aloon when John Hastings and a man known as
“ Brownie” commenced to dispute. Hastings took
a chair and threw it at Brownie, when I seized Hast
ings by the collar and put him out of the back door;
••Brownie” went out by the front door. In a min
afterward Hastings returned by the front door ■
t:ivA approached me. He had a club in one hand, a I
•Q ig knife in tho other. When near me, he said,
4vU d—4 son of u ; why did you pu« me out ?” I
Seeing him with the knife, I went inside the bar
for some weapon to defend myself; I got a stick, and
came out in front of the bar; he then struck me with
the club across the left hand, and stabbed me with
the knife in the right side; feeling myself cut, I got
my left hand down toward the place where he had
stabbed me in the right groin, and I felt that my two
fingers were cut off algo; I then cried out that I was
stabbed; Hastings then ran into the street, and es
caped; I have known Hastings about four weeks; I
heard him say that he had but lately left the State
Prison; several days ago he wanted to borrow five
dollars from me, but I refused him; yesterday he
wanted to borrow two dollars, which I likewise re
fused him.
A verdict against Hastings was rendered by the
jury. The wounded man is steadily sinking, and it
is believed cannot live long. Search is being made
for Hastings by Capt. Mills and the officers of the
Eighth Precinct.

Bryants’ Minstrels.—The Ethiopians of Fourteenth
street, have now a clear field in the way of minstrelsy,
and are doing a remarkably good business. Their hall
is cool and comfortable in the warmest weather, and
their bill is always attractive and entertaining. The
celebrated dwarf comedian, Little Mac, has been en
gaged for the present week, and will make his appear
ance every Those who have once witnessed
his remarkable performances will not fail of seeing him
again. Dan Bryant. Griffin, Hogan, Reed, Hughes, etc.,
are also on hand, and as .irresistibly comic as ever. If
you don’t believe it, go and see for yourselves.
The Central Park Garden is beyond comparison*
the most attractive place of public resort in the city, and
furnishes at all times a varied and delightful entertain
ment. It is indeed the “coolest” place of amusement
in the city; and there, amid the most charming sur
roundings, one may enjoy a feast of melody and all the
creature comforts of life. To-day there will be two
grand concerts by Theodore Thomas’ orchestra, at 3%
and 8 o’clock P. M.
At Wallack’s Theatre, tho Lauri
troupe, in connection with the newly associated burlesque
company, have been doing a very good business through
out the week, and their performances have grown nightly
in public favor. We have nothing to add to that which
which we said in our last issue, in commendation of this
admirable troupe and the judiciously extemporized com
pany. On to-morrow evening there will be a change in,
or rather a reconstruction of, the pantomime, the addi
tion to it being called “ Coralline Rupert, the Reckless,”
and it is understood to be a broad burlesque upon the
opera of “ Lurline.” All the favorites|will appear. These
performances will cease after next Saturday, and on the
following Monday evening (July sth) the Selwyn Boston
combination will appear in “Dora” and in the admirable
burlesque of ‘‘Black-Eyed Susan.” On one evening of
last week Miss Ger mon was suddenly taken ill, and little
Miss Fanny Prestige, at short notice, assumed Miss Ger
mon’s role, and did it and sang the music correctly and
to much applause. It pleases us to make thiarecord of a
rising young and deserving actress.
At the Olympic Theatre, “ Hiccory Diccory Dock,”
still holds its place, still sends people into shouts of
laughter, and still introduces the surprising dances of
the Kiralfy troupe and ballet. There is no necessity for
any change of bill as yet, at this house, for there are
thousands upon thousands of our residents and those of
the suburbs, who have not yet seen the performances;
but it is intimated that the Kiralfy Brothers are prepar
ing a new dance which has achieved for them great pop
ularity in Europe, and it is also said that Mr. Fox is
about to add some new and very novel tricks to the pan
tomime. Matinees on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
At Niblo’s Garden “Sinbad the Sailor,” the Lydia
Thompson burlesque company and those surprising
quadrille dancers, the Clodoche quartette, fill the house
on every night and at the Saturday malintes. It will,
probably, be a long time before a change of performance
will be announced. Messrs. Jarrett and Palmer may
flatter themselves in one point of view; which is that
they turn those events, which to some, would be disas
trous, to good advertising advantage.
• At Wood’s Theatre the performances of Hooley’s
Minstrel Company, and of the Gregory Family, in their
daring feats, and with Miss Gertrude’s well-trained ca
nines, came to a close ou last evening, and on to-morrow
night Mr. E. Eddy, supported by a strong company, is
to appear in Eugene Sue’s “Wandering Jew,” the dra
matic version being, it is said, from the pen of the great
French novelist himself. The management make prom
ises as to the production of this drama, in its various
departments, which lead us to suppose that nothing will
be left undone to make it successful so far as success may
depend upon their efforts. It is now over twenty years
since Sue’s wonderful novel was given to the public, and
setting out of view the socialistic ideas of the author,
it was found to be so charged with interest that it im
mediately ran through several editions in its translated
form. It is full of strong and telling dramatic effects,
and if well acted, will, we think, draw crowds to witness
it in its new shape.
It will be interesting to amusement-seokers to know
something of the leading incidents of the dramatization
about to be offered, which, as we iearn from the bills, is
as follows: The Prologue, in scenery, represents Beh
ring Straits, ths .Sea of loe, the confines of the world,
the return of the Wandering Jew to walk the earth
again—his implorations of a vision of his children, which
is illustrated by an impressive tableau of the tribes of dif
ferent nations.
Act I. presents the “Inn of the White Falcon;” the
arrival ofDagobert; the orphans, Rose and Blanche; the
destruction by fire of the inn and farm-house.
Act 11. is the Home of Adrian; the plotting of the
Jesuits; the shipwreck of the “Black Eagle” and “Wil
liam Tell,” and the rescue of the passengers.
Act 111. is Parish/ moonlisht, in masquerade.
Act IV. is the opening of the Red Chamber, the read
ing of tho will, and sudden appearance of the Jew.
Act V. depicts the attempted Suicide of the Sisters;
their rescue; the duel between the old soldier and Col.
D’Agrinny; the death of Rodin; the general gathering
of the heirs of the Rennepont estate; the death of Rose
and Blanche; and furnishes a scene representative of
Chaos, and terminates with a happy denouement.
We believe that the attraction for the ensuing Autumn
season at this establishment has not as yet been deter
mined upon.
The Fourth of July will be celebrated on Monday, July
sth, when three performances will be given.
At the Grand Opera House, (why cannot some
more appropriate name be given to it,) Miss Lucille
Western appeared on Monday evening last, with a new
company, in “ East Lynne,” which drama has been run
throughout the week. We do not need to give even a sy
nopsis or an analesis of the plot of this play, with which
nearly all of our theatre-goers and millions of novel
readers, are familiar. Miss Western is not the only one
who has essayed the r6le of the dual heroine; but she has
placed herself in the very front rank of those who have
acted it. Her impersonation is a very powerful one and
her points are made with great vigor and naturalness,
as thousands who have seen her in the past can testify.
Her success in the present effort has been a genuine
one. The cast is a strong one, embracing, as it does,
Mr. McKee Rankin (.Sir Francis). Mr. W. E. Sheridan
(Richard Hare), Mr. J. N. Gotthold (Carlyle), K. L. Til
ton, (Mount Severn), Mr. Vering Bowers, (John Dill), Miss
Bradshawe,! (Barbara), Mrs. |Wilkins, Mrs. Bradshawe
and Miss Madden. “Oliver Twist” is in rehearsal, and
until its production East Lynne| will be the attraction.
All in the cast of the latter named are most conscien
tious in the performance of their duties.
At Booth’s Theatre, the last, and about the best
sensation of the season has been the production of Mad.
Julie de Marguerite’s dramatic version of the beautiful
poem of “Enoch Arden.” It is a labor of skill and great
delicacy to take a poetic work like this, and adapt it to
the stage; but in this respect the adaptor has left but
little to be desired, and, without drawing on her own
imagination or invention, has given us a very powerful
drama, which conserves the touching language of the
original work, and all its leading and more powerful dra
matic incidents. More especially is praise due to the
Madame for the manner in which she has preserved, and
yet condensed, the chain of striking events contained in
the plot of the original work. Enoch, like Sergeant Auster
litz in the “Maid of Croissy,” stands out boldly indi
vidualistic through the whole drama, and, by the very
force of circumstances, surrounds himself with the great
est interest of almost every scene. Still this is not a
play in which there is nothing left for the other charac
ters to be performed; for, on the contrary, much of the
thrilling feat ares of poor Arden’s melancholy after life
depend upon the aid that is given to the story by those
who are placed in subordinate positions in the cast.
Mr. Edwin Adams finds in the title role one of the best
parts, after his Me'-culio, that we have as yet seen him
act. Of course we do not mean that this part can be
made to develop, in its acting, tho intellectual study
and depth of thought which the impersonation of Shaks
perian characters requires. We only refer to the inter
est, which is excited from first to last, by this fine actor
in this part, and it appears as though he was exactly fit
ted to it, and it is to him, as in no other character in
which we have seen him. Miss Blanch De Bar is the
Annie Leigh, and she appears to good advantage in the
part. Miss Fanny Morant is the Miriam Lane, a role that
does not require any very great vigor, but which she
makes full of interest. Messrs. Fenno, Lamber, Hind,
Norris, Peters, and others in the cast, are all good, and
all work together in harmony; which shows the effects of
careful rehearsals and conscientious study. The scenery
is excellent |in all its parts, and when we say that it is
fully up to the standard which Mr. Booth has set, in
this department, at this house, we give to it great praise,
and yet only such as it deserves. The musical depart
ment has received special and careful attention, not only
in its vocal phases, but in its instrumental also.
“Enoch Arden” cannot but be a prolonged success, and
it is pleasant to say this of a play produced at a house that
since its opening has been devoted to the advancement
of the legitimate drama. This drama will be given on
every evening, and at the Saturday matinees until fur
ther notice.
At the Fifth Avenue Theatre, Tennyson’s poem
of “ Dora ” adapted as a drama by Mr. Charles Reade, I
has been the principal attraction since our last, the mi
nor magnet having been a burlesque on “ Black-Eyed
Susan.” The former named play has been produced in
this city, and is known, in its dramatic shape, to a few of
the habitues of our theatres. In its original poetic shape
it is known to millions—those who do and the few who do
not admire the truly great English Poet Laureate. The
story is full of sentiment, not at all sickly, but natural
and effectively expressed; and it maintains its deep in- |
terestfrom first to last. Mr. Frederick Robinson has 1
impersonated Farmer Allan, th? stubborn lord of the do- I
mestic situation, and in his hands the part suffers but i
little, except it be that his iron inflexibility is perhaps
too hard, and indeed in some scenes becomes steel, up I
to the time that a newly awakened and overflowing ten- ;
derness forces him to i elent and become more impressible i
under the dictates of natural feeling. Taken generally, ;
Mr. Robinson gives a very line piece of acting in t.ris part,
and sustains the general and enviable reputation which ae j
made here in his season at Wallack’s Theatre, as one of 1
the best general actors now on our stage. Mr. Vand.cn-
hoff, as Luke Bloomfield, enters fully into the spirit of his
part, and gives its varying phases with consummate
skill and ability. Mr. H. F. Daly, as William Allan, is
also highly deserving of praise for an even and very
effective piece of acting, Miss Lizzie Price is highly
acceptable as the heroine, and, without going to the
extremes of passion to create a sensation, throws around
her part a great deal of well-sustained interest, from
first to last. Miss Blanchard is also deserving of praise
as May Morrison. The piece has been received with great
favor, and it will be given throughout the present week.
The “Black-Eyed Susan” burlesque has thrown the peo
ple into roars of laughter on every night of its perform
ance. Mr. Stuart Robson, as the undtuous and amorous
Captain Crosstree, gives a make-up that is grand in its pro
portions and wonderful to behold. He assumes what is
really the leading role in this queer jumble of a play, and
keeps the people in shouts of laughter from the rising of
the curtain to the going down thereof. This part is one
of Robson’s happiest hits, and his operatic business is
particularly fine and telling. Mr. Harry Pearson, as
Doggrass, also makes his mark in this funny burlesque,
and the same may be said of Mr. Josephs, as Dame Hart
ley, Miss Blanchard’s William is decidedly good, and
Miss Cary’s Susan deserving of praise. This burlesque
has been received with great favor, that has been justly
deserved. After the present week, this whole company
will appear at Wallack’s Theatre, in the same pieces
as those which have recently made the little Fifth Ave
nue so highly enjoyable.
Bowery Theatre.—Miss Fanny Herring, with the
Zanfretta and Caron troupe, have drawn very good
houses at the Bowery throughout the week; but Mana
ger Freligh has docided to drop burlesque for the pres
ent. It may be possible to have too much of even a good
thing, and people are beginning to tire somewhat of
burlesque. This week Mr. W. H. Whalley will appear
in Dr. Bird’s stirring drama of “Nick of the Woods,”
and also in the drama of the “Carpenter of Rouen.”
Mr. W. will be supported by Miss Rachel Denvil, Mr.
W. Marden, and the full strength of the stock. On
Wednesday, at 2 o’clock, there will be a matinee for the
benefit of the widow of Mr. Alexander Young, late door
keeper of the establishment. This laudable object
should suffice to fill the house, apart from the excellence
of the performance. Friday evening, Mr. Whalley will
be the recipient of a benefit.
Theatre Comique.—The burlesque of “The Maid
and the Magpie” and the farce of “Sarah’s Young
Man” have been given to good audiences at this house
during the past week. For to-morrow evening the man
agement announce an entire change of programme, pre
senting an excellent comedy, a capital farce, and Joe
Emmett in a new budget of comicalities. Mr. Joseph
Irving, Mr. Charles Abbott, and Miss Marie Longmore
will appear in the roles adapted to their high and versa
tile abilities. There will be matinees on Wednesday and
Saturday, at 2P. M. The company at the Comique was
never better than at present, and the entertainment
offered is well worthy of extended patronage.
Wavebley Theatre.—Tho attendance at the Waver
ley has been very fair during the past week. The play
has been the “ Cid Curiosity Shop,” with Mr. Coleman
in the principal rote, and the acting has been very good
indeed. Nevertheless, previous engagements compel the
management to make a change, and en Tuesday evening
we shall have an opportunity of witnessing the thrilling
gymnastic feats of the celebrated De Lave family. The
daring of these performers is almost beyond belief, and
their wonderful aerial flights are witnessed with intense
anxiety and eager admiration. The popular|favorites,
Minnie Jackson and Asa Cushman, with an excellent
support, will also appear in a Varied and interesting en
Benefit of S. S. Davis.—To-morrow, (Monday) even
ing, Mr. S. S. Davis, the gentlemanly and efficient treas
urer of the Waverley Theatre, will have a rousing benefit
at that house. The bill offered for the occasion is one
which cannot be surpassed; and the following able artists,
with others, have volunteered their services: Mr. Felix
Rogers, Miss Jenny Willmore, Mr. Parsloe, Jr., Mr. E.
Coleman, Mr. G. Brooks, Miss Rosalie Jaok, and the
Misses Betty and Emily Rigl. The orchestra will be
under the direction of Mr. J. R. Buckowitz, and the oc
casion will be one long to be remembered.
A Novel Exhibition, consisting of a collection of an
tiquities and curiosities from our newly-acquired terri
tory of Alaska, was yesterday opened to the public in
the rooms of Leavitt, Strebeigh & Co., Clinton Hall.
The collection was made by Ed. G. Fast, late of the U.
S. Army, and is well worth seeing.
for more years than they will care to ae
knowledge, old New Yorkers have been delighted by the
oddities and humors of George Holland, one of the vet
erans who lags—but not superfluous—on the stage. A
few weeks ago this popular old actor published a doleful
card, stating that his long term of engagement at Wal
lack’s had been brought to an end, and practically Ink
mating that he was out in the cold. His old friends will
be glad to see his name among the list of engagements
made by Mr. Daly for the Fifth Avenue Theatre. Here
Holland will find a Snug berth, and here his inimitable
snuffle will again be heard in the land. He will find, too,
that it will take more years than he can yet boast of for
him to grow out of the kindly recollection of a New York
A dramatic and musical contemporary, who
takes a good deal of pains to pick up “ trifles light as
air,” furnishes the following concerning the ages of
ladies of the stage: Laura Keene is fifty-six, but looks
and acts like a girl of twenty. Mrs. John Drew is over
sixty, but is sensiple. Mrs. Bowers is forty-five. Maggie
Mitchell is forty-one. and a blushing bride. Charlotte
Thompson is thirty-four. Effie Germon is forty. Mrs.
Barrow is over fifty. Kate Reignolds is forty-three.
Lotta is twenty-six. Olive Logan is thirty-seven. Char
lotte Cushman is nearly seventy, and a maiden. Mrs.
Davenport is fifty. Lydia Thompson will never see thirty
again, and Miss Marriott has arrived at the “years of

who made her debut last Fall, and who has since played
with such marked success, plays with Mr. James F. Cath

They are exceedingly well supported bv Mr. William
Davidge, Mr. James Carden, Mr. George Becks, Mr.
John Moore, Mrs. E. Skerrett, Miss Fanny Pearson, Miss
Clossold, and Mrs. Watson.
Miss Lina Edwin, late of the Theatre Com
ique, and now attached to Wallack’s has not as yet made
her appearance, much to the disappointment of her
thousands of admirers. Miss Edwin is a “bright par
ticular star” in burlesque, and we hope her first appear
ance at Wallack’s will soon be announced. Her success
is already guaranteed.
It is currently reported that the Worrell
Sisters Sophie and Jennie, and a earefully selected na
tive American company, will appear at jan early day, at
one of our Broadway theatres, with a new sensation
written expressly for them.
Miss Annie Wood, late of the Theatre Com
ique, arrived in this city on the 21st inst.. from a South
ern and Western tour with the Worrell Sisters, in which
she was very successful. She is stopping at Long Branch,
N. J., for the season.
A new pavilion at Long Branch will be inau

The “Red Stockings” played their first game in Phil
adelphia on the 19th inst., their opponents being the
Olympic Club. The game, taken altogether, was a fine
one, scarcely an error marking the play of either nine.
Our exchanges speak of the contest as the best of the
season in the Quaker City. George Wright, Allison,
Gould, Waterman, Leonard and McVey excelled on the
Cincinnati side, while of the Olympics, Roth, Schafer,
Miller, Wilson and Clinton played in splendid style. The
umpire was very lax in calling either balls or strikes, and
a Philadelphia journal, alluding to it, says, “but for the
feebleness and indecision of Mr. Reach, the game would
have been played in two hours, instead of occupying
nearly three.” The following is the score:

On Monday the Red Stockings won their sixteenth vic
tory, defeating the famous Athletic Club, of Philadel
phia, by a score of 27 to 18. The Cincinnatis were prompt
ly on hand at 2:15 P. M., but the game was not called till
3:10. There were about five thousand people within the
grounds, and at least seven to eight thousand outside
the enclosure, perched upon trees, housetops, wagons,
and every spot capable of affording a view of the game.
The contest occupied over three hours, and was both
long and uninteresting—the only excitement being at
the end of the eighth inning, when the Athletics pulled
up to within five runs of their opponents. The Cincin
natis made decidedly the poorest display of fielding they
have yet shown 011 their trip; their batting, however,
was very fair. The Athletics being short-handed, and
one or two members in the nine being in bad condition,
did not make the fine display that was expected of them.
They had. however, the entire sympathies of the audi
ence, which was without exception the most bitter and
partisan in its nature of any crowd it has ever been our lot
to see assembled on a ball field—enthusiastically cheer
ing the good plays of their favorites and greeting a muff or
bad play of their visitors with hisses and jeers. Leonard,
who made the catch of the game, capturing a high ball
with one hand after a hard run, was not greeted with a
single cheer. Tne umpire, Mr. Cope, of the Maryland
Club of Baltimore, gave the utmost satisfaction to the
Philadelphians. All close decisions were given against
tho visitors, and Waterman was twice decided out on the
second and first bases; in the first instance the base man
did not touch him, and in the latter case, Fislor was at
least two feot off his base. These are merely samples of
tne decisions; these two being very i»lain to everybody.
The um-iire most decidedly lack'd good judgment in his
de-i ions, os it would ba unfair to impute his copduct to
any other motive. A studious application to the rules of
the game would be of benefit, for certainly they don’t
interpret them in Philadelphia and Baltimore as they
do in New York. The following is the score :

The following comments on the game, and the Ath
letic Club, published in the Philadelphia City Item, of
June 26th, are both severe and interesting:
“ We don’t like to say it, but the Athletics were beat
en at all points Monday. True, they had neither pitch
er nor catcher, and Foran could not play, and Cuthbert
had a broken thumb—yet, even with these drawbacks,
they could have won if they had played their average
batting game, and chosen an Umpire who would have
enforced the Rules. But they did not bat, and the Um
pire was ignorant, weak, slow, and unsatisfactory. Such
Umpiring is disgraceful—disgraceful to the Athletics
and disgraceful to the Cincinnatis. The Athletics will
learn one of these days—at least, Mr. Reach will learn—
that a straightforward, manly, lawful, honorable game
is the best. The club that depends upon trickery and
evasion of the law, deserves to be beaten. The game,
owing to the inefficiency (we dont’t like to use a harsher
term; of the Umpire,' lasted just three hours and a
half. Adherence to the Rules would have finished it in
two hours. The result of the Umpire’s ignorance and
stupidity was a slow, tedious, dragging wretched game.
The crowd behaved in a shameful manner! For the
first time in a quarter of a century, we blushed for Phil
adelphia ! And not one Athletic had the courage or the
decency to face the brutal throng and ask fair play for
the strangers! Let us hope never Jto see another exhi
bition of tne kind. Would Mcßride were well, and Rad
cliff in his old position—then, we should have games
played according to law. But, we fear Mcßride will not
be able to act for a year at least. In the meantime, as
we have the honor, the welfare, and the dignity of the
club at heart, we advise them to look about for a pitch
er and catcher for the season. And, for decency’s sake,
let us have no more attempts to win by sneaking, un
derhand, covert evasion of law I Wny is not Bomeialer
chosen Umpire ? He is an honorable, intelligent, duti
ful man. Or, why not ask Kleinfelder ? He will dis
charge the duty, ably, we think, and fairly. And, there
is Harrop, or Crowell,or Dick, or a dozen others—all
strict constructionists, and fair men, who do not bet on
games. But—(shall we say it ?) we have little hope while
Keacii is manager I
The Cincinnatis completed their work in Philadelpnia,
on Tuesday last, by defeating the Keystones. The
game was characterized by strong batting, and poor
fielding on both sides. The score—4s to 30—tells the
story. Allison did not play on the “ Red Stocking”
nine, his sore hand requiring both rest and attention.
Harry Wright caught, Leonard playing centre field, and
Hurley left. The crowd again behaved in the most ruffain
ly and disgusting manner, while owing to timid and
weak umpiring, three hours and forty minutes were oc
cupied in playing seven innings. The following is the

About five thousand persons were present. Mr. Drink
ard, of the Union Club, satisfactorily acted as umpire.
The “National Gaine” was the nineteenth thus far
played by the “Red Stockings,” and on summing up the
totals we find that they have made 636 runs to their op
ponents’ 213, or an average of 33 and 9 over to an average
of 11 and 4 over. This is a flattering result, when we
take into consideration the strong nines the tourists
have had to contend with, and entirely eclipses the per
formances of the Atlantics and Unions on their Western
trip last season.
About two thousand people gathered at the Capitoline
Grounds on Monday, the 21st inst., to seethe contest be
tween the Atlantics and “ Haymakers.” Both sides had
out what is generally considered their strongest nines.
Zettlein pitched, in Pratt’s absence, on the Brooklyn
side, Ferguson caught, and Pearce took his old position
at short stop. The contest was exceedingly one-sided,
the Atlantics playing in real old-fashioned style, while
the play of the Haymakers was miserable. Powers, Mo-
Ateo, Ward and Bearman muffling in the most deplora
ble manner, Flynn alone distinguishing himself both by
fine fielding and heavy batting, making in the second in
ning a clean home run, an example that was followed by
Start and Pearoe in the third. In the sixth inning
the rain, which had been threatening fir some time,
came down in torrents, and it becoming evident that fur
ther play would be impossible, the umpire called the
game. In the sixth inning each side had scored six runs,
the Haymakers with hands out. We append the

The game between the Eckford and Athletic clubs, of
Brooklyn, played on Thursday afternoon at the Union
Grounds, resulted, as was expected, in a defeat for the
Athletics. The Eckfords had out their full nine, with
the exception of Jewett, Pinkham pitching and Hodes
catching. The Athletics were not only out-batted but
out-fielded, and need many more days of practice and
training in order to compete with any hopes of success
with such skillful ball players as the Eckfords. They
must find out the right position for every man, and stop
changing around every inning; must practice batting
the swiftest kind of pitching; learn how to stop hot
grounders; and finally, must stop wild throwing, a habit
which all of the members indulged in from time to time
on Thursday. The Eckfords also played loosely, and
changed their men about frequently; but the batting of
their opponents was so weak that any kind of a player
could put the men out. Allison and Patterson played
their bases in their best style. Nelson deserves credit
for fine throwing from third base to first; also for his
splendid catching in the last four innings, while playing
behind. Eggler sustained the reputation of his family.
Of the Athletics, Price took every chance offered him,
and hardly had a passed ball; Hendrickson was sure and
safe at first; and Woods, as short stop, captured four of
the Eckfords, two on fly catches and the others at first
base. Ball after ball was pitched over the strikers’
heads, and everywhere but to the bat, but not a man was
given a base, and but very few balls called. Umpires
will bear in mind that the rule is imperative on this
point, and that accordingly every ball not legitimately
within the reach of the bat, after the pitcher has been
properly warned, must be called. The following is the

The Eagles, of New York, visited Sing Sing on Thurs
day, for the purpose of playing a game with the Ivanhoe
Club, of that place. They were received at the depot by
a committee, who escorted them through the prisons,
showed them everything of interest, and contributed
greatly toward making the trip a pleasant and enjoyable
one. After a cold collation, both nines proceeded to the
grounds, where they found a large assemblage of specta
tors anxiously waiting to see the play. The field was
very rough, full of holes, and uneven, rendering hand
some and accurate handling of ground balls almost im
possible. Bushes on either side, in close proximity, also
proved very annoying, much time being consumed in
looking for the ball after foul hits. The batting was
heavy on both sides. Of the Eagles, Hicks, Fleet and
T. Gaughan excelled in fielding; while Cox, L. Millard
and Curtis sustained the reputation of Sing Sing. The

The Champions awakened from their lethargy <m
Wednesday afternoon, and played the Yale College boys
one of the finest games we have witnessed this season.
The Yales arrived in town about noon on Wednesday,
and were met at the New Haven depot by a delegation
from the Mutual Club, tendered by the President, Mr.
John Wildey. Carriages were in readiness, and the visi
tors were conveyed at once to the Mutual Club rooms on
Broadway, where they received a most hearty welcome.
A lunch at the Metropolitan Hotel followed, and then
donning their neat and beautiful uniform the collegians
once more mounted the coaches furnished by the Mu
tuals for their use, and were rapidly driven to the Union
grounds. Game was announced at exactly three o’clock,
and it at once became evident that the “ Mutes” had
given up the muffling business, and would play another
oflheir superb games. The Yales, an the contrary, did
not play as well as usual, over-pitches, and wild throw
ing letting in several runs, yet their fielding, at times,
was magnificent, and worthy of the highest praise. The
game was played in the remarkably quick time of one
hour and forty minutes, this result being brought about
by the accurate pitching, and the severe and just ruling
of the umpire. Not a genuine muff was made on either
side throughout the contest. C. Mills did not let a ball
pass him, and made some exceedingly pretty catches of
foul balls. Wolters pitched with great accuracy and ef
fect. The “Anacram” Brothers took everything that
came within their reach, and Swandell, Ed Mills and
Eggler played their positions to perfection. On the
Yale side, French played first base in fine style, putting
out fifteen of the Mutuals. Wheeler, at second, was
invaluable, and McClintock made some very pretty
throws from third to first. Denning, at centre, and Con
dict at left field made fine handsome fly catches the only
weak points of the visitors being their proneness to in
dulge in wild throwing, and their inefficiency at the bat.
The game finished, the visitors returned to Wildey’s
club house, and after changing their dress were escorted
to the Metropolitan Hotel, where a sumptuous dinner
was in readiness. That disposed of, a visit to “ Hiccory
Diccory Dock” was in order, the Yales finally returning
to New Haven, by the 11 P. M. boat, well pleased with
the reception they had met with, and the result of their
game. We append the score:

The Alerts of Seaton Hall College visited Hoboken on
Thursday, and played a game with the old Empire. Club.
The batting was good on both sides, hut the fielding
very loose and mwffinish on the part of the Alerts.
Phelan, Gilhuly, Tiers, and Butler deserve notice for
good play, while Miller, Murphy, Gedney, and Voege
played handsomely on the Empire side. Murphy is cred
ited with three pretty catches, one of them very difficult;
Higham with a good double play; and Gedney with a
handsome fly-catch at left field. The best of feeling
prevailed on all sides, and the game was a truly social
and enjoyable one. The following is the score:

The Harmonic Club, of South Brooklyn, visited tne
Union Grounds yesterday afternoon, and experienced a
terrible defeat at the hands of the Eckfords. The game
was not commenced until a late hour owing to the ab
sence of some of the Harmonic players, and progressed
but slowly, the umpire failing tn call either strikers or
balls, and foul balls going over the club house which
were difficult to find. Pinkham’s pitching was altogeth
er too swift for the Harmonics to hit with any good ef
fect, very few balls bqjng sent beyond the in-field. The
Eckfords, on the contrary, batted every pitcher their op
ponents put up, either swift or slow, and it seemed al
most impossible to get them out in the Eckfords last two
innings. The fielding of the Eckfords was also fine, the
Harmonics with difficulty scoring at all. Early, of the
latter nine, was the only man who played a first-class
game, his skill being much admired by all. Larkin took
three fly balls at centre field in fine style, and Bennett
played third well in the majority of the innings. The
great fault of all the members of the defeated nine was
their wild throwing, the ball being sent to bases wildly
many times when was kim| of a chance to put
out the runner. Pinkham batted splendidly, two home
runs being set down to his credit, while Tracey obtained
one, and reached his first base more times on clean hits
than any man in the nine. We append the score:

The game between these first-class amateur clubs
played yesterday afternoon at the Capitoline grounds,
proved both close and exciting, both nines batting and
fielding in beautiful style. The Stars took the lead in the
first inning and maintained it to the close, the Alphas
batting handsomely in their last four innings, nearly
overtaking their opponents in the ninth. Two men were
on bases, and it was necessary to get them in to tie the
game, but Hall and “ Reed” made a pretty double play
and the Alphas retired a defeated party. Of the Stars,
Worth and Rogers distinguished themselves in the field,
and Hall played first base finely, beside leading at the
bat, Remsen, Manly and Munn, of the Alphas sus
tained the reputation of the club, playing superbly. We
append the score:

ROSS (of Harleip) vs. RJVAL (of Manhattan College).
These two clubs played the first of a series of games on
the grounds of the Athlete Club, at Washington Hights,
on Thursday last, and after a very close and exciting con
test, the victory was with the Ross Club. Most excel
lent play was made by both clubs. Ryan, of the Rivals,
carried off the palm on his side, and his first base play
was admired and applauded by all. Carroll, at centre
field, did fine service, making a magnificent catch. In
fact the entire nine of the Rivals played splendidly,
there being but two mis-plays made by them in the en
tire game. Of the Ross nine, Pabor, as pitcher, plsyed
in bis old style; Turner excelled at third; Walker did
good service at first base, and Reynolds played excellent
ly at centre field. In fact the “Shoemakers,” in defeat
ing so excellent a club as the Rival, have done them
selves great credit. We commend the Rival Club to ail
ball players as first-class players and as gentlemen. The
score is as follows:

The lower field of the Capitoline Ground was the scene
of a game yesterday between the Alert Club, of Seaton
Hall College, and Lloyd’s Niue. The former bad evi
dently recovered from the effects of their defeat at the
hands of the Empires on Thursday, and fielded and bat
ted in fine style. The contest opened quite evenly, and
at the close of the fourth inning stood five and five, but
the visitors now began to bat with great effect, and soon
obtained a handsome lead, eventually winning by a
large majority. The following is the score:

The first good match of the season between the Mutu
als and Atlantics,swill come off at the Capitoline grounds
to-morrow afternoon, and those who desire a car to the
grounds, or a seat, when they get there, had better be
on hand early. The clubs are considered as very nearly
matched, and the contest cannot fail tn he highly inttr

The Orientals defeated the Spartans, at Hoboken, on
Thursday, by a score of 59 to 17, in a full game of nine
innings. The game was a truly social one, and was
thoroughly enjoyed by all taking part in iU
The game which was to have been played at Washing
ton Heights, on Thursday, between the Gothams and
Atletes, did not come off owing to some misunderstand
ing between the clubs.
In a practice game of billiards between Cyrille and
Joseph Dion, at Montreal, June 11th, the game was 500
points, caroms, push-shot barred. Joe played fairly,
making one run of 132, and an average of 42, but Cyrille’ 4
play was immense. With runs of 73, 176. 127 and 55 he
soon finished the game, winning by 248 points, and mak
ing the very creditable average of 83 13. Cyrille’s play
shows up better and better every day, and he is now a
formidable rival to any of the leading knights of the cue
Chris. O’Conner’s fine rooms, on Union square and
Fourteenth street, are delightfully cool and pleasant
this hot weather, and we know of no more agreeable way
to spend an evening than to drop in at this fine bil
liardry, play a social game, take a cool sherry-cobbler, or,
if you are temperance, a lemonade, and learn all the
latest billiard gossip and news from Chris.
John Gault’s Stock Exchange Billiard Rooms, Nos. 69
and 71 Broadway, just below Wall street, are in the fnll
tide of prosperity. “John” is wide awake, and attends
to the interests and wants of his customers to their en
tire satisfaction. His tables are first-class, his liquors
the finest that can be bought, and the rooms airy, cool,
and comfortable.
It is stated that neither Foster, Deery nor Goldth
waite, will participate in the forthcomingitournament in
Chicago at the three ball game. Carme and Rudolphe
are the only players of national fame who are expected
to be present.
Cyrille Dion has challenged Goldthwaite to play a
home-and-home match, at either the American or
French game, for SSOO each game.
The proposed match at the three ball game between
Cyrille Dion and Foster hangs fire.
The twelfth annual regatta of the Brooklyn Yacht
Club, on Thursday last, was a complete success, not
withstanding the want of wind. Thirty-six vessels of all
classes competed; the scene, when a start was finally ef
fected, and the yachts were all making for the Narrows
under a light and pleasant breeze, was exceedingly beau
tiful and picturesque. The course was from a stake
boat off the Club House, Gowanus bay, to and around a
stake boat anchored off the South-west Spit, turning the
cave from East to West, and back to the home stake
The Gracie completed the race in 4 hours 32 minutes
and 45 seconds, beating the Kate, the next in her class,
by 42 minutes and 15 seconds; but as she had to allow
her 15 minutes for difference in canvas, the Kate was
declared the winner, which, though according to regula
tions, seemed unfair, the Gracie having made a gallant
race, displaying splendid sailing qualities, while she was
admirably handled throughout. The winners were:

H. M. 8.
Schooners—Allens 7—
First-class sloops—Kates 15
Second-class sloops—Onwards 6 45
Third-class sloops—Bayonne....s 16 30
Fourth-class sloops—Annie Macks 3
The Brooklyn Yacht Club takes the prizes for schoon
ers and first and second-class sloops, and the Bayonne
Club those for the third and fourth classes.
During the run home, and when nearly off Fort Ham
ilton, the White Cap carried away her topmast which
delayed her considerably.
The Middletown conveyed a large number of friends
of the members of the clubs, and the William Fletcher
carried the judges, Messrs. M. M. Van Dyke, J. H.
Lewis, F. P. Bunker, B. Mallory, and Alonzo Slote; ex-
Commodore Gunther, Rear Commodore John Harrison,
Walter Ellsworth, and John Mallory, of the Bayonne
Yacht Club, and a few friends and members of the press
were also on board the Fletcher. Several other steam
ers were out, well loaded with spectators to witness the
regatta, which, in spite oS the somewhat unfavorable
state of the wind, was the most of the sea
son. v
The prizes are to be one for each class of the aggregate
value of SSOO, Hie article at the option of the winner,
but the proportion to each has not yet been decided,

The Second race this season between Edward Smith, of
the Atalauta Boat Club, and James G. White, of the
Gulick Club, came off over the course of the Hudson
River Amateur Rowing Association, on Thursday after
noon, At about 4 o’clock the steamboat P. R. Schultz
left the foot of Christopher street with a party of about
200 persons, and steamed across the river in the direction
of the course off the Elysian Fields. The water was quite
smooth, the afternoon fine, and a close contest was
looked for, although some of the knowing ones backed
Smith at odds, notwithstanding he was beaten in the
first race. An even start was soon effected, Smith lead
ing. White, however, pulled well, and passing his oppo
nent, led off the coal docks by a length. A foul here oc
curred. but the men pulled ahead, Smith regaining the
lead, and turning the upper stake boat far in advance,
coming home finally ahead near 700 yards, in the good
time cf 24 min. 10 sec. Dr. Russell Withers and Barney
Biglin acted as judges for Smith and White respectively,
and James Delaney as referee. The winning boat was
an old but exceedingly good craft, built by the eminent
waterman George Roahr, and named after the widely
known and veteran aquatic authority, Charles A. Pever
elly. White pulled in the Bonnie, one of Christopher
Thom’s make.

The Alleged Rape at Elizabeth.—-
George Walker, who was arrested on Thursday for an
alleged outrage upon a servant girl named Mary Ann
Stevens, whose parents reside in New York, was yester
day again brought before Recorder Martindale, at Jer
sey City. It will be remembered that the girl’s state
ment was that the defendant hired her from an intelli
gence office, in New York, and persuaded her to go with
him to Elizabeth, where he said his sister lived. When
they arrived there the two took a walk toward the place
where Walker said his sister resided, After leaving the
city some miles, he committed, as she alleges, the as
sault, and still worse, repeated it. On their return to
New York, he was arrested, the victim having thrown
herself under the protection of Judge Rankin.
Yesterday the girl’s father, brothers, and some of her
female friends, were present in court, and if black looks
and ominous frowns could scare the fellow, theirs must
have frightened him. The brothers only wanted an op
portunity, and the women fairly shook their fists in his
face. The language of one of the brothers was not very
choice, being the lowest kind of Billingsgate. Chief
Kerin, of the Elizabeth police, came over to secure the
prisoner, and both the accused and Miss Stevens went
With him to Union court. The examination will take
place on Monday at ten o’clock, at Elizabeth police-sta
tion. Walker, who has a voluptuous looking counte
nance, declares his innocence, and charges the girl with
stealing his watch. The latter is a nice, modest-looking
girl, twenty-one years of age, and her father appeared to
be a hard-working, respectable man.
The Haul of Freight Car Thieves.
—The examination in the case of the men charged with
stealing $1,006 worth of silk from a freight car on the
Erie Railroad, last March, was proceeded with yesterday
morning beiore Recorder Martindale, Jersey City. The
thieves were discovered by its being ascertained that Ja
cob Gall, a silk manufacturer, of Union Hill, had pur
chased some silk which was identified as being some of
that stolen. Gall was arrested by Chief Fowler, on a
charge of receiving stolen goods, upon which he gave
the information that he purchased the silk of Mr. Val
entine Feldmur, a junkman, of Hudson City, giving for
it $6 per pound, but of course denied that he knew it
was stolen. Officer Carroll arrested the junkman, who
in turn stated that he bought it off James Doran, a la
borer, also a resident of Hudson City, and another man.
Doran was arrested, but the other has escaped. The ac
cused were held in bail for trial. Chief Fowler and his
associates deserve all credit for working up this case.
Some on His Muscle. —Daniel Clif
ford, residing in 115th street, was charged with whip
ping seven young men. It appears that in the neigh
boring house of Mr. Brush there was a wedding, to
which Clifford was not invited. Some umbrage was
taken at this, and Clifford stood at his door and had a
growl. The guests at the Brush wedding tried to stay
the storm by firing a volley of stones at Clifford’s house.
Instead of retreating into his house, he came out of it,
and challenged all the Brushes that ever were produced.
Seven accepted the challenge, and after whipping them
all they had him arrested. He came out of the fight
with two black eyes, but be left ten blacker than his own
behind him. He was held to bail by the Court to keep
the peace.
Passing a Worthless Check.—Yes
terday afternoon Nathan L. Loeweinck, a German, of
good address, was exceedingly brought before Justice
Dowling, on a charge of having procured money on a
worthless check. It 15 alleged that he procured from
Messrs. Meyersberg A Bro,, of No. 47 Murray street, the
sum of $165 on a check for that amount on the Conti
nental National Bank, purporting to have been drawn
by L. A. Salver, in favor of the accused. The check was
found to be worthless, and Justice Dowliug committed
the accused for trial.
A Youthful Thug.— George Luck,
aged about 11, was charged with inflicting a dangerous
stab behind the ear on Louis Probst, an urchin of his
own age. So far as the stabbing was concerned, the evi
dence was not very clear. It seems that for some time
past when the two boys mot they would have a growl and
a fight. On the day in question, coming home from
school, Luck was attacked by Probst. He had his
school-strap in his hand, and unfortunately there was a
buckle to the end of it. In the swing the buckle struck
young Probst behind the ear, inflicting a deep and pain
ful cut. Tne bystanders supposed the cut was caused by
a knife. The boy was found guilty, and remanded to in -
quire into his character.
Theft of Money. —Meyer Hecht,
of No. 303 Canal street, on the 19th inst., engaged Eliza,
Gould to clean his store’ While thus engaged, it is al
leged she stole from the safe a package of bills amount
ing to $l3O. The money was not missed until the fol
lowing Monday. As she was the only person who had
had access to the safe, she was taken into custody, and
yesterday Justice Dowling committed her for trial.
A Pound-Keeper with Fusil Oil on
the Brain.— Mr. Reilly, a Jersey City pound-keeper,
was arrested and locked up yesterday while suffering
from delirium tremens. He annoyed his neighbors on
Friday night by firing his gun off at imaginary mad
dogs, and frightened his wife by his strange conduct*
He will probably be allowed * day or two in which to set
tle down.
A Large Quantity of Dies, Stamps
andeCounterfeit Notes Seized.— For a considerabla
time past the Government Treasury officers have been
convinced that there was a large amount of counterfeit
bank notes and currency being manufactured and circu
lated in this city or vicinity. Col. Whitley, Chief of tha
Secret Service Corps of the Trea -jury department, ac
companied by officers Clanoe and Miller, cf his force,
came to this city and commenced an investigation. They
were assisted by detective Philip Farley, of the Central
Office of this city.
Yesterday the party arrested Joseph Prodemean, an
Italian, keeper of a fruit stand at No. 132 Eighth avenue;
also an Italian living in Elm street, and employed as &
barber at Phalon’s establishment, in the St. Nicholas
Hotel, and Robert Herring, living in Garden street,
Mott Haven. In the premises of the latter were found a
number of dies, stamps, presses, etc., such as are used in
the manufacture of counterfeit money, and a quantity
of two and five dollar bills, and twenty-five cent cur
rency. All these were seized, and, with the prisoners,
taken to police headquarters.
The prisoners were committed to cells, from which one
of them managed to escape, but was recaptured. On
Monday they will be taken before a United States Com
missioner, to await an examination. The counterfeits
are very well executed, and calculated to deceive.
Assaulting the Blind. —Bob Wil
kinson, a dilapidated specimen of a worn .out age. was
charged with assaulting his wife Ann Wilkinson, who
being blind had to be led to the witness stand by a child.
On being sworn she could not swear that she saw her
husband strike her, but she felt him. She, however,
was willing to forgive her husband if the Court was.
Although blind she has had no support from her hus
band in nine years out of the twelve that they have
lived together. The prisoner, on being asked what he
had to say, began by saying that his name was Bob Wil
kinson; that it wasn’t his fault that flowers were not
now thrown over his grave at Gettysburg, where he
fought, unfortunately he lived, and lived where he could
neither see or smell a flower. After he went to the war
his wife lost her eyesight, He came home as sound as
the goose he used every day. He treated her as a trea
sure. But sometimes she did get out of temper, and on
this occasion she caught him by the hair, and getting
rid of her hold she felljaccidentally on the stove. Ann be
ing blind couldn’t swear whether it 1 was Bob’s fist or th»
stove that came in contact with her nose, the case was
The Beal Case. —ln the Supreme
Court on Friday, before three justices, the case of Real
was heard on a motion for a new trial, and decision of
course was reserved. The argument of counsel went
beyond the record. Real’s counsel claimed that certain
evidence was excluded that should have been admitted ;
that the press had given the case such, notoriety that his
client couldn’t have a fair trial. The tenor of the argu
ment of counsel for Real was that no person acting as
juryman in a capital case was fit to sit on the jury who
had read the details of tha murder. On the other hand.
District-Attorney Garvin characterized the shooting of
Smedick as a cold-blooded murder. Very likely a new
trial will be granted; Real will be admitted to bail; ha
will on the next trial be a witness in his own defence;
the jury will disagree, when he will be discharged on
nominal bail. That is likely to be the upshot of th®
latest murder.
Fourth of July in Newark. —The
celebration of the “£fih”of July in Newark will com
mence at sunrise by a National salute on Lincoln Park,
followed by a ringing of the church bells of the first,
second and third Presbyterian churches, House of

and Mayor and Common Council. The precession will
pass through the principal streets of the city, and ba
dismissed opposite the Central Methodist Church. At
this church the Declaration of Independence will ba

A Game Old Coon. —Bernard Ha
gan, a game old coon, aged 70. pleaded guilty to whip
ping James Garvin. Barney said that, when a boy, hi#
fighting weight was 130. “I did it,” said Barney, “ and
I would do it again.” “Why,” said the Court, “the
man you have punished is a mere child” (aged about 40).
“He denied me my rights.” It seems that the two had
been playing a game of euchre. Barney thought that ha
had been cheated. He so told Garvin, when the lie
direct was given; thereupon the old fellow got up and
whipped Garvin—a man thirty years younger than him
self. Judgment was suspended.

the Tombs and demanded permission to see a prisoner.
The keeper, Mr. Mark Finlay, declined to admit him,
when the visitor became very abusive, and Mr. Finlay
took him by the arm and led him toward the door. Pur
cell resisted, and finally struck Mr. Finlay a heavy blow
in the face. He was at once secured, taken up stairs be
fore Justice Dowling, and the magistrate, without delay,
granted his wish to see the inside of the Tombs by com
mitting him in default of SI,OOO bail.
Paterson Brevities. The rumor
in circulation of the extensive prevalence of small pox in
Paterson, is declared by medical authorities totally de
void of foundation, in fact, as there is only one such
case in the city.
Mr. J. McKve has sold his sorrell horse, “Star,” to et
New York gentleman, for $3,000, and his brown trotting
