' He was thought in a fair way of recovery, but Wednceday morning he rclaprcd, and died in u Inur. I lie Coroner held an inmicst. The man had two wounds, ono under the left eye and the other over the rMit eye. On his arm wcro the name Chas Bergen and a man's ' head, a fish, and an anchor.

Downcs, proprietor of a stove store at 1,212 Droadway, New i ork, intended to go on an excursion with the Twenty-Second ltcgimcnt, and directed his errand boy, Michael Quinn, to clean his revolver. Quinn had polished the barrel, and was about to oil the trigger of the pistol, when it accidentally went off. At the time, Fannie F.lsie, I t years old, who lived with her mother, on the third floor of the building, was standing at the hall door, looking into the street. The ball passed through an open doorway which connects the store with the hall. struck Fannie in the fleshy part of the right arm, and passing through enter ed her right lung. She clapped her hand to her side and staggered against the window for support. Quinn, when he discovered tho mischief he had done, rushed to tho rear of the store and said to Mr. Downcs, "John, I've sjiot a girl." Quinn, who is only 13 years old, was taken to the Thirteenth street police station.

He remained unconscious for six or seven minutes, after which he appeared to recuperate. He was conveyed by Coroner Durns and others to the First Precinct Sta tion, thence to tho City Hospital The physicians declare that the neck was dislocated, and the body, from the shoulders downward, paralyzed. Yet the man converses freely, and it is be lieved that there arc chances of his recovery. Tiros at Coldwatcr. Two destructive fires occurred at Coldwatcr on Thursday night.

An article on tho famine in Persia, in tho New York Her all has the fol lowing: "Tho writer was in India in 1SC8, and witnessed porno of tho hor rors of the terrible famine which pre vailed in Ajinere, and which, accord ing to official statistics, caused two millions of deaths. No sight on earth can" bo pictured more terrible than a crowd of miserablo creatures frenzied by hunger. Spectral forms stretch forth long, thin arms, with tho elbow joint standing out in bold relief, like a huge ball, and tho hand spreading like the roots of a tree and demand in shrill accents the means of life. And such eyes and faces as glare at you !t I ears hence they haunt you in dreams, like some hideous picture of a mad house, or a battlo field, or an execu tion. And if you have courage to calmly examine into all their minutiaj theso rcvolt'mg forms of misery, tho most calloused heart may well turn sick with a disgust which is strangely mingled with terror. Iu many cases the victims of starvation tako a pecu liar form of fever tta famine fever. His body breaks out in nlccrs from head to foot, and his; blood burns in the tortures of a living fire. ' Hotter far the quinch though npul.iivt? Lvr- rors of the plague than the prolongc torments that hang in tho wako of great famine." Accident nt a Fire. . On the evening of tho 8th, at New burg, N. Y., a largo frame building on Western avenue,' formerly occupied a a tannery and oil cloth factory, but moro recently as tenement and broom leather, and cement manufactories. was burned, tho fire originating in the broom department. Tho loss is csti mated at ' $10,000 ; partially insured During tho fire, John Fitzpatrick, cartman, was at tho top of a forty-foot ladder, which reached the peak of th roof, holding tho pipe.. Suddenly and unexpectedly tho south chimney, to gether with tho side of tho building, toppled over, taking Fitzpatrick, lad dcr and all, with it. Fitzpatrick turn ed a complete somersault, and struck between sheds aud trees, and directly beneath tho falling bricks, timbers etc hen he was extracted, to the wonder of hundreds of spectators, he was found to be apparently uninjured having sustained slight bruises about the hip aud head. Joseph Hyde, Nathaniel D ew, and Thomas IJoice, three members of Washington Kngine . Company No. 4, who were ujon tho ladder supporting the hose, sustained severe injuries.- Hyde's ankle is broken and horribly shattered, necessitating, it is thought. amputation. Drew s ankle is fearful ly bruised, and a small bono in the leg broken. Doico is hurt iu tho back, and is suffering greatly. The last three were injured by being thrown from the ladder, directly under the fulling debris. IvOttery Thieves. In New York, on the 9th, Adam Jloediger, of 3G0 West Forty-Second street applied to Justice Shandley for the arrest of William L. Simmons, Zachariah K. Simmons, Charles Sim mons, Thomas Simmons, and John Howard Adams, the principals of the firm of Simmons & Co., 272 Uowcry, for having endorsed a book authoriz ing Ernst Clutc, of 20G Rowery, to sell tickets for Alabama and Kentucky lotteries. He also asked for a warrant for the arrest of Ernst Cluto for sell ing lottery tickets, and of Jacob Clute for keeping a lottery office at 200 Dowery. Justice Shandley promptly granted the warrants. Sergeant Mc Comb of tho Court squad, with Offi cers Devcridgo and McCormack, en tered 272 Bowery, where they found Chas. Simmons fixing up tho lottery books, and took him into custody. The party then proceeded to 20G Bow ery, where the Sergeant found John Clute, but, as tho warrant was for Ernst and Jacob Clute, they did not arrest him. Proceeding to G7 Liber ty street, and mounting two flights of stairs, tho officers found Tom. Sim mons and J. Howard Adams rcceivinc and sending telegrams in characters which tho officers say they could not understand. They took the men into custody, and together with Chas. Sim mons, conveyed them to ' Jefferson Market, where Justice Shandley lock ed them up in default of $5,000 bail each for examination. The other two Simmons, Zachariah E. aud William L., were out of town, but wcro looked for by the next train. Shooting Affray. The Ionia Standard says : A shoot ing affray ocenred in tho township of Orleans on Tuesday last, by which a man by the name of Hubbard receiv ed two very serious gun shot wounds. It appears that Mr. Hurd, of Orleans, had in his employ a couple of boys, together with a man or so, as farm hands, and one of the boys stated that he was maltreated by Mr. Hurd, and laid his case before Mr. Hubbard, who undertook to seek revenge upon Hurd, and a fist combat ensued, in which Hubbard was too much for his oppo nent, who was by the interference of Bome ,.ono present rescued, when ho went to his house, followed by Hub bard. Hurd then invited his oppo nent into the house to hear his (Hurd's) wife giro her statement as to whether tho boy had been abused as alleged ; but the rago of the man had not fully subsided and he again made for Hurd, who agaiu being attacked fled to an adjoining room and procured his pistol, and turned about aud partly closed tho door, and told Hubbard not to enter or- ho would shoot him. Hubbard rushed in and renewed the assault, when the first shot was fired, tho ball entering Hubbard's right chest, but did not affect him so but that ho kept up his advance upon Hurd, when a second shot was fired, tho ball taking effect in his left groin, causing a seri ous wound. . . Mr. Hubbard is 6aid to bo lying in a critical condition tho chances of life and death being about equal. .Mr. Hurd came to this placo yester day morning and gave himself up to the authorities, and will probably un dergo, an examination soon.
