THE CUSTOM HOUSE PICNIC A FIZZLE—NONE
BUT OFFICE-HOLDERS AND DEMOOBATS
PRESENT—BILL HAW AND JIM COB CRN THE
MOST NOTABLE PERSONS IN ATTENDANCE.
We are very glad that the people of Yorkville and
Harlem took our advice, and did not picnic with
Haw last Thursday, at the expense of the poor em
ployees of the Federal offices. It was one of tho
grandest failures of the season. The poor devils
that were forced to go were growling at the price of
the tickets (only two dollars apiece).
On the way up the river to Oriental Grove, fifteen
cent bouquets were distributed to the gentlemen;
some put them in their button-holes, others in their
hats, and a few gave them to their girls. Very few
but office-holders and Democrats were present, as
the following list of the committees will show, and
pearly every man present was a committee man:

lic Works, a Tammany Hall man; David Fitzgerald,

House, a gentleman of polished manners, and many
varied accomplishments. “Hurry up (he beers,
Steve.” The Treasurer is Wm. F. Haradon, In
spector Custom House, and the Secretary, Johnny
Cooper, Jr., Inspector Custom House.
The above list comprises the “ William Haw
Coterie,” a fine showing to turn out to do honor to
so excessively popular, influential, and important a
personage as Bill Haw thinks himself to be.
We can certify to tho fact that they were all good
drinkers. Sweet Weelyum Haw was always to be
found at the bar, indulging with every one who
gave him an invitation. He felt so enormously
jarge that we had to let out a reef in the main jib of
his vest. We have seen more orderly crowds. The
services of the police committee were brought into
requisition very often.
One office-holder disgraced himself, his associates,
and family. Out of respect for his wife and children
we refrain from giving his name.
Among the notables present were Bill Haw, Tam.
many Contractor and Custom House Carman, &c.;
George W. Lyon, Secretary of Custom House General
Committee; John Hart, Ex-lammany Councilman;
Jim Coburn (a brother of the pugilist, and recently
locked up on a charge of murder), was present in all
his glory. After Sweet Weeiyum himself, Jim was
the greatest curiosity present.
The Haw picnic wound up amid great dissatisfac
tion and universal growling. The few respectable
people present felt glad when the inauspicious day
closed. Haw doesn’t intend to do so any more,
FROM PILL.AB, TO POST.
ROW IN A BROADWAY BOARDING HOUSE—THE
LANDLADY BADLY INJURED—A HUSBAND’S
VAIN ATTEMPT TO GET A WARRANT OF
ARREST—DOGBERRY DECISIONS.
Mr. Edward Primrose a clerk in the Erie Railroad
Co.,' with his wife Edith, occupy tho premises known
as No. 705 Eighth avenue. About two weeks ago
tney rented the upper floor to a Mr. F. C. Mayhew,
bis wife, and Mrs. Deford, a friend of the family at
the rate of thirty dollars per week, board and lodg
ing. Shortly afterward Mrs. Deford was about to
leave, and the remaining tenants, Mayhew and wife,
proposed to pay the landlady the sum of twenty dol
lars per week. This she refused to accept, whereupon
an altercation ensued. Her boarders declared that
they would leave without paying anything. They
Bummoned an express wagon to take their effects
away, but Mrs. Primrose taking her stand at the door
declared that they should not pass except
OVER HER LIFELESS REMAINS.
She says that Mayhew thereupon seized her and
knocked her head three times against the wall of the
house, and then cast her upon the ground injuring
her severely; and that himself and wife then left
without looking behind them.
Soon after Mr. Primrose returned, and upon find
ing his wife in the sad condition to which her inju
ries had reduced her, he proceeded to the Nineteenth
Precinct station-house to have her assailant arrested.
The police sergeant in charge said he would not in
terfere, and he recommended him to go to tho jus
tice of the district and procure a warrant of arrest.
Next day Primrose called at the Yorkville Police
Court, and stated the object of his mission. He was
told by the clerk there that
NOTHING COULD BE DONE
without a deposition of the injured lady, or a medi
cal certificate showing that it was impossible for her
to attend. He then started to the residence of Dr.
Maloney, No. 262 West Forty-second street, the gen
tleman who attended her, and. obtained from him
the necessary certificate. Armed with this docu
ment he returned to the court and was there in
formed that his was a case which came within the
Coroner’s jurisdiction, and could not be attended to
by that court as the injured person was stated to be
in danger of death.
On Friday, the precarious state of Mrs. Primrose
prevented her husband from taking any active meas
ures in the matter. At eleven o’clock yesterday
morning Mrs. Primrose gave birth to a four months’
foetus. The husband then went to the City Hall and
laid the case before Dr. Beach, Coroner Keenan’s
assistant. He was of opinion that he could not hold
an inquest on a foetus, but that if, upon investiga
tion, it proved that the life of the mother was imper
rilled he would issue a warrant tor the arrest of the
accused. The afflicted husband was obliged to de
part with this pcor consolation, tojawait the result of
his wife’s serious injuries.
SUED FOR ST.BLCTION.
A PRETTY CUBAN GIRL ARRESTS HER LOVER
FOB SEDUCTION UNDER PROMISE OF MAR
RIAGE—SHE ACKNOWLEDGES THAT HE WAS
THE SECOND MAN WHO SEDUCED HER—THE
CASE ABANDONED.
A case was up before Justice Ledwith, yesterday,
In the Essex Market Police Court, in which a num
ber of Cuban refugees were interested. From the
(acts developed in the case we briefly sum up the
following points: About one year ago a Cuban
named Gerrano left Havana, and arrived in Florida.
He was a cigarmaker. Previous to leaving Havana
he had, with
THE PROMISE OF MARRIAGE,
Beduced a beautiful dark skinned Cuban girl. Shortly
afterward he wrote to her to come to New York city,
and he would marry her here. The girl came. She
had an uncle and aunt living in Brooklyn, to whose
house she went upon her arrival. The girl’s name
was Anino Piasos. Gerrano met her upon her ar
rival in this city, and continued his attentions as be
fore at her uncle’s house. But still he put off the
marriage day for pecuniary reasons. At last it was
discovered that Gerrano had no intention of marry
ing the girl at all, for the undo of Anino learned that
Gerrano had made preparations for leaving the city
yesterday afternoon for Cuba. Upon that informa
tion the uncle made the charge of seduction before
Justice Ledwith, and in the afternoon at 3 o’clock
all the parties were up for a hearing. The object of
the uncle of the girl was to force Gerrano to marry
his niece, and so
SAVE HER HONOR,
An interpreter was sworn, and the following evi
dence was elicited: The girl stated the fact of her
seduction, and the promise which Gerrano made of
marrying her. Gerrano, who was a little bright
eyed fellow, with a skin as dark as the Senorita
Anina, stated that she had acknowledged to him that
fihe had
KNOWN ANOTHER MAN BEFORE HIM
who had been as intimate with her. In reply to
that revelation, Anino said that he had answered,
that it made no difference to him, he would marry
her though she had two children by some one else.
Justice Ledwith asked her whether this intimacy
had existed previous to her acquaintance with Ger
zauo, ohe ftCkRQFWW had
“ That will do,’* said Justice Ledwith. “ You may
all go.”
The aged Italian counsellor for the dark-eyed
Cuban girl was deeply disgusted at the result, and
stated if he had known all the facts he would have
had no hand in it.
COURT OF SPECIAL SESSIONS.
FEMALE FISTICUFFS—A SAUCY NYMPH SHOW-
ING FIGHT—CRUELTY TO ANIMALS—BOOT
LARCENY.
There was nothing of special interest at this court
yesterday, and Justice Shandley, who presided, had
to leave before a little more than half the calendar
was disposed of. The major part of the cases tried
were for trifling assaults and petty larceny.
Josephine Cody, a sweet looking nymph, was ar
raigned on a charge of assaulting an Italian, named
John Allamando, of No. 216 Chrystie street. John
stated that he was standing at his own door, when
Josephine and another girl approached and asked
him the way to the Bowery. While he was directing
them how to get there (a perfectly needless thing on
his part, as they knew the route better than he did
himself), he felt a hand in his vest pocket. He
couldn’t say whose hand it was, whether Joeephine’s
or her companion’s, but he at once ejaculated,
“You’re a pair of thieves.” Thereupon the gentle
Miss Cody gave him a forcib’e slap of her hand on
the cheek, and attempted to kick him on the shins.
Justice—Are you quite sure it was the prisoner
that struck you ?
John—Well, I am not.
Justice (to the prisoner!—Yon are discharged.
GOING TO VE3PERS.
Mrs. Johanna Sullivan was going to vespers last
Sunday. She was going to a church in Mott street,
when a rude creature, named Mary Shea, jostled
against her. Mrs. Sullivan turned round and meek
ly inquired why she pushed her in that manner.
Mrs. Shoa replied, in a ladylike style, “Because
you’re a dirty, stinking b—h.” Mrs. Sullivan was
too piously disposed at the time to make the retort
courteous, but said something so biting and sarcas
tic that the lovely Mrs. Shea rushed at her, caught
her by the hair, and drew a handful of Mrs. Sulli
van’s grey locks from the roots. She would have
demolished the old lady, but forth e interference of
a policeman. Justice Shandley fined Mrs. Shea $5,
which was promptly paid.
CRUELTY TO DOGS.
Mary Dillon was very justly fined $25 for throw
ing a dog from a fourth story window to the side
walk, killing the poor animal instantly.
STEALING BOOTS.
Ida Hall, a good-looking young woman, was con
victed of stealing a pair of boots, and got two
months in the Penitentiary. JUiza Kock, who was
the complainant, stated that Ida took the boots to
go to a picnic.
RAID ON SWINDLERS.
A LOT OF ANN STREET SAWDUST SWINDLERS
PULLED—TWO WAGON LOADS OF MATERIAL
CAPTURED.
The gentlemen who live by the sharpness of their
wits on the dullness of the wits of others, are not few
nor timid in this city. Notwithstanding that raids
are made upon “ Keno,” the magical numbers have
their votaries; and though efforts, not very persist
ent, however, have been made to break up the policy
shops, they continue to flourish, and negroes and ig
norant white men “ go” their pile on 4—11—44.
One of the meanest sorts of swindling known in this
city is that of the “sawdust” men. They write let
ters to people all over the country, stating that they
have a counterfeit which deceives the experts, which
they sell at about ten per cent, of the real value.
Foolish boys and knavish men snap at the bait, for
ward their money, and in return get a nicely done up
package of “ sawdust.” The police have made sev
eral efforts to break up the business, but the swin
dlers were not caught, and the country continued to
be flooded with the enterprising gentlemen’s circu
lars. Yesterday a successful raid was made, and
four of the prison birfls caged.
One of the principal “sawdust” establishments
has been located for some time past at No. 22 Ann
street. In the afternoon intelligence was received
at Hie Beekman street police station, which led the
officials to investigate the “ concern.” Accordingly,
a raid was made upon the establishment. Two
wagon loads of boxes containing the sawdust were
captured and taken to the station-house. Four per
sons were arrested. The names of the prisoners are
Harris Simpson, aged forty years, married, and re
siding at No. 89 East Broadway; John A. Sherman,
single, forty-five years old, No. 81 Amity street;
and William Smith, a boy, fifteen years of age, re
siding at No. 262 Monroe street. The swindlers
were taken by surprise, while in the act of address
ing letters. Their captors were Captain Leary, Ser
geant Westfield, and a platoon of patrolmen from
the Beekman street station. The officers entered
the place in a very sudden manner, and saw all that
was going on. The prisoners were conducted to the
Beekman street station-house.
IKE w, OLD FORCE.'!
A JOLLY TIME ON LAST THURSDAY.
The “Old Force” of the Fifth Ward gave their an
nual picnic on Thursday last, afternoon and evening.
There wis a great crowd at nine o’clock, over three
thousand persons being present. Dancing was kept
up until after midnight, and a more sociable gather
ing has never been witnessed. Everyone of the com
mitte did his level best to make it agreeable for all.
The officers of the “ Old Force” are, Alderman Ter
ence Duffy, President; John McGonigal, Vice Presi
dent; James D. Taylor, Secretary; and John L.
Whitton, Treasurer. The officers were assisted in
keeping the festivities going by the following efficient
gentlemen: Thomas Candy, Joseph Firm, Gilbert
Carr, George W. Mason, James Fiddes, and Joseph
Kingsley. The police arrangements were excellent,
and were under the management of Charles Hughes
who was ably sustained by Mark Thomas, Patrick
Duffy, John McKeown, Arnot Spence, Michael W t
Burns, Mathew Thompson, Carroll Cuneen, James
Bastinella, Edmund Kelly, James Kearny, Henry
Webb, Charles H. Patterson, William H. Moloney*
Frederick Ford, Henry Opp, and Patrick Monoyhan,
A REPUBLICAN PICNIC.
PLEASANT DAY’S ENJOYMENT.
Last Wednesday, a large number of (Anti-Murphy,
Custom House) Republicans of the Eighteenth As
sembly District, among whom were George H. Van
Cleft, George F. Coachman, Tom Rightmire, and Joe
Dixon, went to Varian’s Island on a clam bake and
chowder excursion. It was one of the most enjoy
able affairs of the season. A quartette club accom
panied the excursionists, and enlivened the party
with vocal and instrumental music. One of the
most prominent features of the occasion was the ab
sence of spirituous liquors. All enjoyed themselves
hugely, each vieing with the other to make it a grand
success, which it was.
Bread and Butter in Council.—
The Custom-House Republicans of the Eighth Assem
bly District held a meeting at No. 274 Grand stree[
on Friday evening. The Executive and other Com
mittees were appointed. Every member of the Ex
ecutive Committee is an officeholder. Mr. Warren,
on behalf of the Germans, asked for representation
for them on the Committee; but his motion was laid
on the table. Mr. Atwood then asked if the roll o*
members had ever been printed. The President con.
fessed, after considerable hesitation, that it never
had been printed; but that the roll had been sent to
Messrs. Orton and Schultz, and they would have 1t
printed. After a dreary meeting the members ad
journed in such low spirits that those who saw them
imagined that an order for their removal from posV
tion had reached them, or that they had been com
pelled to listen to a speeoh from Conundrum Town
send or a “ Ballad of the Bible ” from the Champion’
Re solutionis t.
Rescued from Drowning.— On Fri
day night, about half-past nine o’clock, a German*
named Adam Schwartz, who was on his way from
Long Island to Newark, accidentally fell overboard
in the unoccupied slip next above the Hoboken
ferry houses. His cries of distress brought to his
assistance some of the ferry hands in a small boat,
but owing to the darkness, some time elapsed before
he was discovered, and he was then sinking for the
third time, and was insensible. Alter being resus -
citated, Schwartz was taken to the police station by
Sergeant Eckel. Yesterday morning, the unfor
tunate man having lott his coat and bundle, and
being penniless, he was taken to Lidner’s Hotel,
where he was furnished with food, a coat, and ticket
for Newark, and went hie way rejoicing.
Sudden Deaths.—Margaret Coak
ley, seed 80 years, of No. 226 Elizabeth street, died
yesterday of disease and general debility, consequent
on old age; and Ann Brady, aged 70 years, died sud
denly at No. 707 Ninth street. Both cases will be in
vestigated by Coroner Schirmer.
Frances Kirk, aged 85 years, was found dead in her
room, yesterday morning, at No. 1150 Second ave.
An inquest will bo held by Coroner Keenan.
Attempted Suicide. Between 8
and 9 o’clock last evening, a woman named Mary
Reynolds, 35 years of age, and very respectably con
nected, attempted to commit suicide by jumping
from a ferry-boat at the Hamilton avenue ferry.
She was rescued by a boatman named Greaner, and
taken in charge by the police of the Third Precinct.
Fire Last Evening.—At about sev
en o’clock last evening a fire broke out in the two
story brick building owned and occupied by P. W.
Vorhies, No. 106 Livingston street, Brooklyn. The
fire was of incendiary origin, and involved a loss of

A HORRID MYSTERY.
The Body of a Young Woman
Boxed Up.
Evidently a Victim of Abortion.
Left at the Hudson R. R. Depot,
CHECKED FOR CHICAGO.
A MYSTERIOUS OLD WOMAN.
TSTE POLICE ON TOE LOOK OCT.
IS IT OOTHEtt JOH3 €. COLT AFFAIR !
One of the shallowest and most villainous attempts
to cover up the footsteps of crime that was ever de
vised, was yesterday discovered by the authorities,
and may load to the detection of the authors of a
loathsome and detestable outrage against public
morality. About two o’clock in the afternoon, a
truckman, on whose vehicle was marked the name
“Tripp,” drove up to the freight entrance of the
Hudson River Railroad depot, at Thirtieth street,
and deposited a single trunk upon the ground.
Then leaning against the wagon, he seemed to await
th© arrival of some one. In a few minutes a one
horse coupe© drove rapidly up to the passenger en
trance, from which
A MATRONLY LADY
of rather respectable appearance, though meanly
clad, alighted. She, too, looked around, and hesi
tated to enter the building. She gazed eagerly up
and down the street, and scanned the faces of those
whom business or pleasure caused to be loitering
around. At length,
HER COUNTENANCE BRIGHTENED
up, for she recognized the truckman, and hastening
amid the press of wagons to his side, bid him carry
the trunk to the platform.
A little fellow named Paddy was amusing himself
by watching the vigorous movements of the many
workmen, and the woman catching sight of him,
with the tempting offer of ten cents induced him to
aid tne man in carrying the package. It was an or
dinary packing trunk, and very heavy; but this was
accounted for by its containing glass, and the bear
ers were enjoined to be careful, as it was the
PROPERTY OF ANOTHER.
The man Tripp corroboaated this assertion, and the
boy having earned his few cents, marched off. The
female entered the ticket office, and having paid $22,
the faro to Chicago, said that sho was herself pro
ceeding there, and wished to have her baggage
checked to that point. As she returned to the street
she tapped the boy on the shoulder, and intimated
that she was to leave by the 7:30 train, and would
wish to see him before that time. The usual check
was given by Frank Dunning, in the parcel office,
and the trunk, properly labeled, turned over to the
porters to be transferred to the baggage car. In
tumbling it over, it was observed that a peculiar and
offensive smell was emitted from it, and the atten
tion of ihe baggage master, Robert Vandeward,
called to it. After considering for a moment, he tore
off the lid, and was horrified to find that
THE BOX CONTAINED A HUMAN BODY,
bent nearly double, with the knees pressed close to
the chin, and altogether presenting a most forced
and unnatural position. As soon as the first emo
tion of surprise and almost terror had passed away,
a closer inspection was ventured on, which in no
wise tended to diminish
THE SHUDDERING FEELING OF HORROR.
The trunk, of the most ordinary description, had
seen much service, being old and dilapidated, and
insecurely fastened. The interior dimensions were
two feet six inches in length, eighteen inches in
depth, and about twenty inches in width, and with
in this receptacle lay coiled the naked body of a
young girl probably not more than eighteen years of
age. She was in life perhaps five feet in bight, of
delicate mould, and possessed of all the ripe attrac
tions of budding womanhood.
Her face was thin, small, and very beautiful, and
her long, light-colored hair fell in braids over her
shoulders. The body was placed on the right side,
as if it wore crushed down, the elbows depressed
into the hollows of the sides, and the hands clasped
in front, and embracing the left knee.
The head and neck were bent forward, as well as
the sacral portion of the vertebral column, the legs
flexed, and hugged closely to the thighs, and both
pressed closely against the abdomen and breast. To
place them in this position
CONSIDERABLE FORCE
must have been used, and the front portion of the
box was bulged out Decomposition had made rapid
progress, and showed most distinctly about the abdo
men. For a time speculations were indulged in as to
the probable motive of this strange coffining, which
were at last set at rest by the positive assertions of
medical men, who, from a cursory examination, were
of opinion that she was *
THE VICTIM OF AB ORTION,
Of course, it remains a mystery how the body
came there, notwithstanding the minute descriptions
given by the lad, Paddy, of the truckman and the
female, though in cases of less interest detectives, as
a rule, display a large amount of seeming astuteness.
Officers McConnell, Rice, and others watched at the
depot until nine o’clock last night, carefully scruti
nizing each comer for the woman, but no trace of
her has, up to the present moment, been discovered.
It should be a matter of no great difficulty to follow
up the clue now in their possession, and at least find
the truckman, who may be liable to give further in
formation which will lead to the capture of the
criminals. The trunk, with its terrible contents, is
now at the Twentieth Precinct Station House, in
charge of Captain Caffrey.
SHOOTING INTO A CROWD.
FOUR PERSONS WOUNDED-ONE IE IS FEARED
FATALLY—ARREST OF THE WOULD-BE MUR
DERER-
Between seven and eight o’clock last night, an af
fray occurred in a liquor store bept by William Nel
son, in Eighteenth street, near Sixth avenue, Brook
lyn. Timothy Dooley, one of the parties to the af
fray, struck Nelson, the keeper of the place, a des
perate blow in the face with a lager beer glass, and
immediately ran away, and the troub.'\ in a minute
or two, had partially subsided, only to be renewed
very shortly with greater desperation and terrible
results. It seems that, on leaving, Dooley ran to
his residence, in Twentieth street, some two blocks
distant, and procured a double-barreled fowling
piece, ai\d hurrying back to the scene of the con
flict fired into the midst of the crowd assembled
there. A fearful condition of excitement and alarm
prevailed, and an immense crowd gathered around
the place, and all were in a state of perfect panic.
It was subsequently ascertained that there were
FIVE PERSONS SHOT,
at least one of whom was thought to be fatally in
jured. The names of the injured persons are Wm.
Nelson, Sophia Nelson, John and Margaret Mee, and
Mary Bolend, the latter being the most seriously in
jured.
Dooley was arrested by Sergeant Mayhew, of the
Eighth Precinct, and the place was closed and put
in charge of Officer Jaques. The Injured persons
were conveyed to their homes.
To-morrow, one of the most bril
liant Terpsichorean entertainments which have been
witnessed thia season at Long Branch, will be given
at the Continental Hotel, tß*Mr. W. B. Borrows, by
his guests and a numerous circle of friends, in the
shape of a grand civic and military ball, That tho
ball will bo of the most select and enjoyable charac
ter, is assured by the names of the gentlemen who
form the general committee, among whom is His
Excellency T. F. Randolph, the Governor of New
Jersey. No effort on the part of the committee will
be wanting to make this affair a success, and it is a
well-deserved tribute of respect and esteem from a
number of gentlemen toward Mr. Borrows, which
must be highly gratifying to his feelings.
Alleged Seduction.—A younglrish
man, named Owen Connolly, nineteen years of age
a recruit in the United States army, was last even
ing arrested at David’s Island, by Officer Murphy, of
Brooklyn, on a charge of seduction, preferred by
Catharine Quinn, residing at No. 119 Congress street.
It is said that the outage was of a very aggravated
character that endangers the life of the girl. The
accused was brought to Brooklyn and locked up in
the Third Precinct Station-House.

[From the Pioche (Nev.) Record Aug 10. ]
A rich case of domestic infelicity occurred in
one of our neighboring valleys last week, which
for downright cheek, wo think, has no parallel
even in this fast age. A family who resided in
the valley were in the habit of keeping board
ers, and among them was a young man whom
wo shall call A. Being without a place in which
to sleep, A requested of the landlord a place to
spread his blanket under his protecting roof,
There being but two rooms in the house—din
ing-room and bed-room—the landlord granted
him permission to sleep on the floor in one cor
ner of the bed-room. Matters went on smooth
ly, until one night •• mine host ” awoke and
found the partner ot his joys and sorrows gone
from his side. Listening quietly for a, eijort
time, ho bad no difficulty in tracing her where
abouts to the corner in which A was sleeping.
He sprang from bed, and a row ensued, during
which he was ejected from tbopremises. Next
day he made application for board and lodging,
but was politely informed by A and his own
wife that he could be accommodated with
board, but under no circumstances with lodg
ings. He told them he wanted both or neither,
and departed at once in an unenviable state of
mind. Several days after, during tho absence
of his wife and A., he obtained possession of
the house, and, armed to the teeth, denied his
wife and A admittance, and they were com
pelled to ” camp ” in tho sagebrush for the
night. Next day the wife held a parley with
her husband, and, under tho plea of a desire
to offer a reconcilliation, she succeeded in se
curing the deadly weapons and admitting A,
she at once informed her husband that
she had no use for him, and would never live
with him again. The wife and A, at last ac
counts, remained masters of tho situation, but
how tho affair will terminate remains to be
seen.
Good commissions paid to good
agents, to judiciously distribute “ Medical Goon
