TREASURER'S OFFICE BROKEN OPEN.—
Last night some burglars forced an entrance
into the office of the County Treasurer, in
the Court House in this City. They en
tered by prying up the window sash, aa
was done onee before. The large padlock
veeuring the bar across the door of the
vault was broken by a cold-chisel, the door
•opened and the vault searched for currency
but without reward. A bag containing
Two Dollars in pennies escaped the obser
vation of the burglars, or perhaps it was
too small plunder for them to carry off.
This is the third time, thieves have broken
into the County Offices within one year,
Without realizing a cent.
Taw PABX VACATED.—At a meeting of
the City Council, held Monday evening, a
petition was presented that the Council
vacate the Park Block, River street, be
tween Washington avenue and Sissen
•treet, and the alley west of said block,
and that en which the Stearns House is
built. The request was granted by an
unanimous vote, provided the tracts so va
cated be used for Normal School purposes,
and the City Clerk was directed to take all
legal steps necessary to complete such sc
ion. This will give five and one-half acres
of ground for the use of the Normal
School, and in one of the moat pictuiesque
'localities in this part of the State.
DlAT OT A I S A O O
NA.—A telegram received here on Satur
day, announced the death of Rev. Demet
rius Marogna, at St. Paul, ou tho morning
of the 27th ult. Father Demetrius was
born ia Italy, of noble parentage, in the
year 1802, and had reached the age of 67,
at the time of his death. After complet
ing his theological studies, ho came to the
United States and began pastoral labors at
Alton, 111. Seven years afterwards ho re
moved to Pennsylvania, whore he remain
ed until 1856. In that year he caino to
Minnesota, and founded the Monastery of
St. Louis, near this city. He was the pas
tor of the Church of Assumption, in, St.
Paul, for abont one year and until he be
oame Vicar General of the Diooese. Impair
ed health made it necessary for him to seek
a warmer climate, and in 1866 he repaired
to St. Augustine, Florida, where he re
mained until the summer of 1868. He
then returned to St. Paul, his health unim
proved. His strength returned slowly,
until about the teginuing of the year,
when he relapsed and declined rapidly un
til his death. On Monday last the body
was brought to St. Cloud, and was met at
the depot by a largo concourse of our citi
zens, with whom soveral years of his life
had been spent. An imposing procession
was formed, and with uncovered heads his
people conveyed his remains to the Catho
lic church. After solemn services, they
were conveyed to the Abbey of St. Louis
on the Lake for interment.
LOST MAIL RECOVERED.—On Friday
night last, £. C. Smith, Esq., while pass
ing near the fire well at the intersection of
St. Germain street and Washington avenue,
discovered a mail bag lying embedded in
the snow and ice. By use of a pick and
shovel, in a few moments this property of
Uncle Sam's was released, and found to
be the way bag lost on the Sauk Centre
loute on the night ef the 15th of Nov. last.
On that night it was snowing fearfully
when the stage arrived at the St. Cloud
office, and the mail bag used on the read
could not be found. The contents were
valuable, there being Government vouch
ei for $1900 in it, belonging to T. C. Mc
Clure, of this city, and several registered
letters. The P. M. at St. Joseph stated
that he placed the missing bag upon the
driver's seat when the coach left his office,
after which time it had not been seen.
Suspicion was attached to a driver, who
soon after left the employ of the Company
but the finding of the bag under the snow,
where it has lain all winter, releases him
from all complicity with its disappearance.
The contents were in a frozen state, but
after thawing and drying were in a reada
ble condition. Some sixty-eight dollars in
Treasury notes were brought to light in
the course of the operation, as good as
SERIOUS ASSAULT —A young man by
the name of Kelsey, came into town on
Friday of last week and stored away more
of our fighting whisky than was Rood for
him. In this condition he perambulated
the streets with a rifle on his shoulder,
and at last dropped into the drug store of
Dr. Schulten. Demanding whisky, he was
ordered to leave, and led to the door 'by
Mr. Becker, the clerk. After going out of
the door he deliberately struck Mr. B. with
the butt end of his rifle, inflicting a severe
wound. The blow was delivered
with all the force possible, and har? not Mr.
Becker partially parried it with his arm,accumulated
probably would have fractured the skull.
Policeman Ketcham promptly arrested the
offender, and he appeared before Justice
Barnes the next morning, very sober and
penitent. After hearing the testimony,
and a request of the injured party, that
Kelsey be dealt with as easily as possible
for this, his first offence, the magistrate
fined hliu a dollars uud costs he
paid. We are informed that Mr. Kelsey
has heretofore borne an excellent charac

tho yarn, only follow & A's advice, aud
like them you will be convinced.
OUB STREETS.—We certainly believe
that, at this season of the year, St. Cloud
has the worst streets of any place in the
State. This too, with the greatest facili
ties for draining every one of them into the
Mississippi river. Our street commission
ers have heretofore filled up all low places,
instead of constructing gutters as should
have been done, especially upon Washing
ton avenue and St. Germain street, and
now many cellars receive the water that
ought to be carried into the river. Upon
the streets mentioned, the water stands in
puddles aud ponds, and with the accumu
lated filth of a year or more, presents the
appearance of an outrageously dirty barn
a I is with difficulty that a person
can cross these streets, and we urge upon
the City Parents that steps should be tak
en to prevent in the future this horrible
condition of our main thoroughfares.

monsensible and it is a pity they don't ex
orcise more commonsense, in fact it is not
common but it is fashionable to be foolish.
Now the idea of asserting that we areCheese,pi
classed with idiots, lunatics and criminals,
because we don't wade through the spring
mud to vote at town meetings, is simply
ridiculous Then we all have aright to hus
bands, and good ones too, who will do the
wading and voting and such like work, and
leave us at home to attend to our rights,
such as making home comfortable and
pleasant, and training our children to be
virtuous and moral men and women, when
they grow up, and to avoid agitating any
thing as absurd as the idea above alluded
to. Why so far from being classed in any
such way, we are really classed as super
ior to the lords of creation wo sit while
they stand, we are waited upon while they
wait, we hold our hands comfortably in
our muffs, with our faces veiled and pro
tected .from the storm, on sleigh rides,
while they face it and drive the team in
short we are favored mortals, and I hope
we shall not feel so exalted as to look upon
our husband's or our husband's relatives as
our inferiors. We have a right to treat
our woraer halves as equals and ifwe are
not willing to, it isour right to look far
ther before we accept the position of wife.
We have aright to one-half the property
after our marriage, and no
more than half we have aright to prac.
tice economy in food, in dress, and in ev
erything that shall tend to make our hus
band's expenses less than his income. It
is our right to be as agreeable after, as be
fore marriage, and to make home the bright
est spot on earth to act in such a man
ner as to claim respect from those around
us, and then, sister agitators, we may re?t
assured that we will be granted all the
rights that was intended for us from the
foundation of the world.
