The trial of Lefroy..tho murderer
of Mr. Gold on the Brighton Railway,
excited a great deal ot interest 111
England. Of tho personal appearance
of the man when brought into court
for the first time, tho correspondent of
the London Telegraph wrote as fol
lows: "Neatly attired, and now shaven
and kempt, he had lost tho hageurd
look that distinguished him before,
and as he took bis scat ou tho hassock
and folded bis arms, ho certainly, to
all outward seeming, was quite as
much at his cane as anyone in the
court. I thought bis cyo twinkled as
he watched the artists of illustrated
papers endeavoring to sketch him.
and posed himself a little accordingly.
But on the wholo it may be said th it
at the beginning of the proceedings he
took Tory little outward notice of what
was going on around him. Had he
been a member of the jury, instead of
the prisoner at tho bar, he could not
have been calmer, more meditative or

Wasmnotom, November If'. To
day being tho fiftieth anniversary of
tho late President Garfield's birth,
tho Washington Literary Society, of
which General Garfield was formerly
rrcsidont. and which is composed ol
the leading literati and soicntists of
tho Capital, had a special meeting this
evening for (he purposo of commemo
rating tbo tact, lhe meeting was
held at Ibe residence of President
Gallaudct, of tho Kennal Green Deaf
and Dumb College. Mr. A. II. Spof
fordj Librarian of Congress, delivered
an interesting address on General
Garfield's love of books, which it will
be remembered was ono of his nmst
marked characteristics. The meeting
was largely attirdci.
The alleged spirit of Thomas Paino
visited tho earth tho other evening, in
Philadelphia, and through a woman as
medium delivered a snooch to an au
dience of several hundred people. The
medium is p'cturesquoly described as
("a masculine-looking woman with
I closely cropped head of hair, plcnti
fully be.-rrinkled with gray, i eiuare,
determined jaw, and a voice that is
between falsetto and lho bass of a
deep chested man." Among many
other entertaining faots the audience
b arned through her that the "Age of
U;am" was written between the
hours of ten o'clock in tho evening
and two in tbo morning, and that tho
prison cell was lighted bv an unseen
power to enable Paino to do tbo work.
After the lecture was over a tall man,
of an inaniinitive turn of mind, arose
in the back ot tss hall, ana askea u
I homas Paine was the author ot the
letters of "Junius." This question
taggercd tho medium at first, but
nally with anapparent eilort, she
answered les, sir, ana the grauuca
udienco dispersed.
Modern innovations are depriving

The song of the gondolier is beard no
more. The introduction of small
steamers, which make periodical trips
along the chief canals, has caused the
famous boatmen to retaliate, in an
extremely unpoetio sort of way. by

the customhouse or to the military
uthoritics if he wishes to take tho
istorio rido in the approved fashion.
The gondoliers number about 700, and
this is tho nrst time that they have
indulged in the luxury of a strike.
