A JSegro Ml (taken for a Bear, Shot and
. 1'erhap. Killed.
From parties who came in on. the Ohio
division train yesterday, we learn
of au unfortunate occurrence near Ca
reyville, Tuesday night. Richard Hart,
son of Dr. Hart, of Careyville, a young
man just about grown, is employed as
guard at the convict camp, where fifty
convicts are being worked at the tunnel
this side of Careyville. He was making
his way home after dark,' and suddenly
stumbled over some object in his road.
Now, there had Deen a rumor afloat that a
bear was roaming at large in the vicinity.
Hart's first impulse as the report goes
when he stumbled over the living object
wa3 that it was this bear. He glaDced
back in the dark and saw the
object moving, and, without further hesi
tancy, drew his pistol and fired two shots
Tbe object was soon found to be a hu
man being, however, and the body of Lewis
Cross, a colored man. One of the shots
entered his right breast below the nipple,
going through, and the other shot lodged in
the left breast. Cross came from Bristol,
was a brick-mason, and had been working
for Maj. Carpenter at the tunnel. He
seems to have been drinking that evening,
and had perhaps fell by the wayside and
dozed off into a nap.
rhysiciens were sumomned and the ball
was probtd for without success!. Cross was.
yet alive yesterday morning, but uo hopes
of his recovery were entertained. It was
an unfortunate, occurrence, regretted by all.
A cold in the head is odb of the best
things that can happen to a lady with a lace
handkerchief, and Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup
is decidedly the best remedy to cure that
Kmnia Abbott Grand Opera.
The produotiou of Gilbert and Sullivan's
opera, Patience, by the Emma Abbott Com
pany at Leubrie's Theater, last night, was
not" only a musical event of more than
ordinary importance, but had a special in
terest from the fact that it is a satire upon
the modern esthetic craze, of which Oscar
Wilde is the representative. Behind the
shield of a libretto the writer deals blows
at the exaggeration of mstheticisin that are
all the more effective because delivered in
dialogue between ideal personages and
fixed upon the memory by very attractive
It is essentially an acting opora a satir
ical comedy brightly written aid sat to inn
Hie, which requires a thoroughly trained
company to produce it well. The Ablott
company did more. They brought out not
only the points in the work that are appar
ent" at first glance, but also tbe delicate
shading of the satire that paints it. There
was not a member of the cast who did not
do his or her duty to the full, and contribute
to the success of a performance that was
one of the most complete and delightful j
iu the memory of our amusement public.
Misses HtUtield, Cliftou and Hiudle,
who were selected from the chorus to do
duty as the ladies Angela, Saphir and Ella,
acquitted themselves with an ease . that at
tested careful and intelligent training. Miss
Abbott's Patience was charming in its
naturalness and quiet force, and was a
tribute to her exceptional qualities as an ac
tress. She got a recall on the ballad "Love
is a Plaintive Song," and introduced in the
encore several touches of floriture sing
ing that delighted those of the au
dience whose musical culture ad
mitted of a thorough appreciation
of its difficult and artistic execu
tion. Misss Anuadale was the ideal Lady
Jane. She gave to the oharacter just the
proper amount of exaggeration intended by
its authors, and invested it with a subdued
but always apparent spirit of fun that seems
peculiar to herself. Her solo with the im
mense ba?e viol she lugged ou the stage,
was irresistablv amusing, and got her a
double encore. Castle's Bnnthorne was in
his bent vein, and made him, in some re
spects, the chief figure in the per
formance. It wai evident . that he
had studied the part thoroughly and
grasped its salient points with the intelli
gence of a born actor and he certainly made
the roost of them. It is hard to concoive
how the personation could be improved
even in detaiL Mr. Olmi developed an un
expected fitness for Grosvenor. His acting
and singing wore equally good. Messrs.
Stoddard, Tames and Appleby also did well,
individually, and rendered excellont service
in leading the chorus.
What is written above may read more
like au eulogy than a criticism, but in
writing of a performance so nearly perfect
as that of last night criticism is disarmed.
Life is not really lived that cannot be en
joyed. The nerves must work harmoni
ously or there cannot be happiness. In
Dr. Benson's Celery and Chamomile Pills,
the nervous lady finds certain relief. They

Something; New in Photography.
Wearegladto notice in the Nashville
American, of the successs of our worthy
friend and former fellow-citizen, Mr, T, M.
Schler, a pioucor of the art of photog
raphy in the South, in a new development
in that profession. At the organization of
the Photographer's Association, iu
Chicago, in 1880, exhibitions were
given" in- the recently introduced
gelatin dry plates, by which instantaneous
photography is easily produced, and Mr.
Sohleier was made chairman of a com
mittee to investigate the matter. Mr.
Schleier was the first manufacturer of the
gelatin plate in the South, and is now using
it in his business. He claims superiority
tyr it over all other processes, and is
making arrangements to increase his
facilities and supply the trade of the South.
We rejoice to learn of Mr. Schleier's
A Foolish M Intake.

Father .Tohn Francis Walsh.
Announcement was made in our tele
graphic columns yesterday of the death at
Jackson, Tenu., of Father John Francis
Walsh, a Catholic priest. He died of small
pox, contracted in Memphis, his home.
Father Walsh will be favorably remembered
by the Catholics and others with whom he
came in contact in Knoxville, having re
sided here for a time, two or three years
since, r during which time he officiated
with Father Marron at the Catholic Church.
He was highly respected and esteemed by
his people. In connection with his death
the Nashville American says :
The deceased as born in Callan, County
Kilkenny, Ireland, and was aged twenty
eight years old. He was educated at All
Hallows College, iu the County of Dublin.
Siuee his arrival here four years ago, he
has been in Knoxville, Nashville and Mem
phis, spending the most of his time, how
ever, here. He was highly esteemed by
the church, atid wfcs held in high favor by
Archbishop Feehan, of Chicago.
The deceased passed through the yellow
feyer epidemics at Memphis, in 1878 and
1879, and is the only priest who escaped the
contagion... Since 1873, twenty-two priests
have died at Memphis of epidemic diseases.
Within the same time only one has died in
Tennessee from other causes than epidemic
diseases. This death occurred at McEw
en's, and the one who fell was Father Mo
Ineryney. Bod-Bugs, Roaches.

Another GazeOer Heard From.
Mb. Editoe: In the issue of the Chbon.
iole of the 10th inst. , I notice a description
of Knoxville, as published in a London Ga
zetter, in 1810. I have in my possession
Darby's Gazetter, published iu 1S27, which
contains the following:
Knoxville, pst. and seat of Justice, Knox
County, Tennesse., on the light hand of the
HoLstou River, 22 miles above its junction
rith the Tennessee, about 200 miles from
Nashville. It is the seat of an academy,
and preparations are making to put a col
lege into operation.
A very liberal donation was made by the
general government in favor of the latter
institution. Pop. upwards of 2,000.
Of Knox County, it contains this among
other things :
"Holston and Clinch Rivers unite at
Knoxville, .near the center of thiR county ;
with the united stream below their junction,
afford much excellent laad."

" Pour oil on troubled waters"' is an old
recommendation ; in "the modern interpre
tation of the phrase we hear such expres
sions and advice as the following contained
in the closing words of a long article in the
Boston Herald : During my jauntipgs
around town I heard many remarks of a
complimentary character in relation to the
merits of St. Jacobs OU, and one person
said : " There's the venerable Hanibal Ham
lin of Maine, our Ex-Vice-President. He
never wears an overcoat, and is therefore
the legitimate prey of rheumatism. If he
wants to continue saving the expense of an
overcoat, and at the same time escape
rheumatism, such weather as this, he must
invest fifty cents in a bottle of St. Jacobs
Oil and lather himself with it right well.
.He will find it a cheap and serviceable over
coat to keep the rheumatism fron his body.
The Turner Calico Ball.
The event of the season in German soci
ety circles was a comic calico ball given by
the Knoxville Turn Verein last night, at
their cosy and inviting hall in the opera
house building. There was a very large
attendance, not only by our Germih fellow
citizens, by many of their friends
of other nationalities, both young and
old, and it was one of the pleasautest
social gatherings ever celebratad in their
hall, and very creditable to the manage
ment The members of the TurnVoreia
were comically dressed in calico wrappers
and suits, and their ladies were neatly
attired in calico dresses. The music was
furnished by the splendid Crouch band, and
to the excellent calling of Prof. Jimmie
Lowery, the dancing was engaged in with a
will till a late hour.

same place to-morrow night .

We will have no controversy with the
sapient writer of the Tribune, about the
annexation of Mechanicsville. Life is too
short to waste time trying to convince men
who are resolved not to be convinced, and
especially when it makes so little difference
whether they are convinced or not, as in
this case. He alleges that the movement is
for the purpose of turning the city govern
ment to the Republicans. We only know
that among those most active in its pro
motion, were the Condons, Democrats and
large tax-payers, Jas. Cooley, F. B. Cooley,
Wes Weatherford, Mr. Middlcton, A.
Mynders, Eugene Mynders, Frank Cum
mings, Thomas Stamps, Geo. Lethgow,
Thomas McDonald, Edward Kinzell, Robt.
Stephenson, W. B. Fentou, G. J. Ashe and
others, thrifty, reliable, industrious
mechanics: tax-payers and Democrats. The
Tribune says they are "nnsus
pecting Democrats," . greenhorns, as it
were, who are inveigled into this thing
by the scheming Republicans. Them and
the Tribune for it We know them to be
clever, public spirited gentlemen, and we
give them credit for doing in such matters
what they truly and sincerely believe to be
for the public good. The Tribune 6eems to
think them too green to know what they
are doing. We do not
