morrow afternoon of Calvary Cemetery
will be found in our advertising columns.
The ceremonies will be of a most solemn
and interesting character; and being
participated in by the several religious

by Johu Lilly, Pete Crowley, P. Mulve

facture and serve the "cooling beve
rage." Over forty persons are reported
poisoned, the particulars of which we
glean from the Avalanche. It appears
the proprietor of an ice cream saloon, a
Frenchman, made up a large quantity of
ice cream, the first of the season. It
was distributed gratis, and ' freely par
taken by his friends. Shortly afterward
all who tasted the cream were seized with
violent pain and the most of them pros
trated. Four members of tbe French
man's family are among those afflicted.
Mr. Coolidge, the telegraph operator,
and his wife are both sick the recov
ery of the latter considered doubtful A
bucketfull of the ice" cream bad been
sent to tbe Female College and freely
partaken of by tbe young ladies, and
they are all dangerously taken down.
Various, others .were likewise afflicted.
Tbe doctors analyzed some of the cream.
They pronounced the poison to be
arsenior , There were no well defined
conjectures in regard to the cause of tbe
terrible affair. Whether it was the work
of some malicious fiend, or one of those
terrible accidents which decimate and
appal a whole community, are questions'
which future investigations may answer;
but in tbe meantime the catastrophe re
mains unexplained.

i The Atlantic and Pacific Telfgrath
Line The Nashville Banner of the
19th says: "The s'ock of the Southern
Telegraph Company, better' known .as
"General Kirby Smith's line," has been
transferred to the Pacific and Atlantic
Telegraph Company. This consoli
dation will extend the lino to
Southern , and Southwestern cities
wilh such energy and enterprise as
will insure its Success. The Pacific and
Atlantic is an -established institution;
which has for some lime returned han
anme dividends to its stockholders. The
poles for this line have been erected to
this point, and it was only last week that
the managers secured permissionfrom oor
city authorities to erect their poles upon
our streets. By September the line will be
completed to Memphis, and thence to
Now Orleans in a short time after. The
consolidation with tbePacific and Atlantic
company places the substantial success of
the Southern Telegraph line beyond per-
adventnre. Some of the wealthiest and
most influential citizens of Louisville srs
warmly enlisted in this enterprise, and
have staked their money on it liberally,
appreciating its commercial advantages.
We bespeak for it in this city an encour
agement not less earnest and hearty.
