For *eal ing a piece of bread, his tormentors'held the child in front of a fire, where, in spite of his cries, he was left until he was so thor 'r ougbly roasted that his life is despaired of. of He was found by some of the neighbors in he this situation and released.

M. Sargent, a well-known harness-maker, who was shot and instan'ly killed. The madman then took his pocket-knife, with which he had already t slain his wife, and cut his own throat. in The supposition is that Clark was crazy, and 4e, had become impressed with the idea that er, some one was following him with the intent ble to do him injury.

LATE news from Dublin: The police arrested sixteen rioters at Bodyke, all armed with rifles, which were taken from them and they were allowed to go on bail. A son of Lord Dunsandle has been shot at and wounded. A flying column of engineers, artillery, Infantry and cavalry left Dublin for New Pallas to assist in the execution of eviction decrees. Engineers will repair bridges broken downby the populace to pre vent the passage of artillery. The expedi tion to New Pallas is also dispatched to cap ture the castle held by the Land Leaguers. The facts in the Goshawk affair are that she people prevented the police from landing, and the Goshawk subsequently attempted to land them, but without success. At Scariff, County Clare, the people fired on the police, who returned the fire, kill ing one of the rioters. About 100 shots were exchanged. The Assistant Secretary and a member of the branch of the Land League at Kilby, near Kells County, Meath, have been arrested under the provisions of the Coercion act on suspicion of mutilating cattle. Archbishop Croke has made a num ber of speeches defending the Land League. He said: " This movement is not a revolu tionary movement in the strict sense of the word. It is a constitutional amendment; it is a lawful movement; it is a movement which we intend to push forward by moral force alone. We do not intend to violate any law. I hear of a disagreement among the leaders of the people, but these things are exaggerated. Our phalanx is unbroken, our spirit is unsubdued, and the result is, there fore, clear as day. We must succeed." TalE Mexican Congress has adjourned. t Its action on the tariff increases the revenue $4,000,000.

A a order to rejoice over huma triun Sa Americans vs. Englishmen, it nonetheless th ak in order to rejoice ever the equine. We have ho a, little doubt that any American animal can 'as beat an English animal, but in this case it a the . unusual cause for congratulation that it is an A American horse, noblest of all animals, that nI he has shown his heels to the whole English pack, an and that Iroquois, while he is not the first th horse that has won a race in England, is the ha d, first horse that has won the Derby. and the or n- first to really settle the vexed question of the superiority of the American over the English tal thoroughbred. The stable which Mr. Sanford sent over sev eral years ago did little except to make a cred- oh CO Itable exhibition, but did not alarm the En- tel ed glishmen as to the superiority of their horses. Cal nd In 1;8 Mr. Lorillard sent over a detachment Ca of of his horses, with Parole at their head, which all nd changed the views of Englishmen. They be- di , gan to suspect, after Parole had won a series ln of handicaps, that something good might come th out of America in the way of a horse. Last on season the Americans were unfortunate. Fa sir role was handicapped so heavily that nothing he e- could be done with him, and he was sent home. IlR ii- Mr. Lorillard's Mistake and Sly Dance made a 01 p good exhibition, and Wallenstein proved unre- gp rs. liable for steady work. Mr. Keene's stable ti( he was afflicted with a malignant epidemic, but po towards the close of the season his Foxhall ' and Don Fulano did some very creditable work. to This season, however, the "Yankees," as if, Englishmen term all our horses, have been tY on dong so well that the other contestants for mi ill- the Derby have been alarmed at the outlook, an s and two of them, Iroquois and Don Fulano. the Wi former the property of Mr. Lorillard and the wr nd latter of Mr. Keene, who came in second and Cit third to Peregrino for the Two Thousand co , Guineas, came to the front at once among all of horses In England of their age, though the ex- pr ng pectations of the Lorillard party attached 8 n- rather to Barret and Passaic. who were beaten be je. at the start by a bad send-off, rather than to sal t- Iroquois, the ultimate victor in the Derby. th he The race came off on Wednesday, and Iroquois an itwon the race by half a length, with the Duke ho mt of Westminster's Peregrine second, and two an lengths ahead of Lord Itlosebery s Town Moor, third. At the distance-pole, Peregrine ny looked like winning at a canter, but Iroquois the made a dash, and cane in amid tremendous wl ire enthusiasm, his fider claiming that if it had 1in tur been necessary to could have won the race by Ot re. three lengths. Thousands upon thousands of H Englishmen and the mnost of the Rioyal family T Ed. joined in the applause that greeted the brave ni brown colt, who was in the best of spirits, lue likewise his rider. It is needless to say that his Mr. Lorillard is also in the best of spirits, as pt c- well he may be, having won, it is said, two P millions on the race. The American people nil sh will join in his Jubilation, and help celebrate thI the great victory of the tirst American winner en of the Derby, which no longer leaves any d of doubt as to the long-mooted question of su- he ces poriority between American and English m is', thoroughbreds.-Chicano Tribune, June 2. i m. an Railroad Accidents. is rt- in the T Railroad Gazet of a recent date has a record of the railroad accidents occurring ir ase during last April.

El Set Free by an Earthlquake. Ihe Ax incident which occurred during the late T 33, earthquake at Chios strikingly illustrates the fi truth of the old admg' that "'tis an ill wind ti Sthat blows nobody any good," and is well t wbith the attention of missionary oircles. een Some months..ao considerable excitement oM was caused by the imprisonment for life of a alo Turkish mollab, by name Khodja Ahmet, for en the olffense of having helped Dr. Kohle to W translate the Bible and certain Protestant of prayers nlato the Turkish language. Khodlja . Ahmet was shut up in a prson at Chios; and Ih there be would probably have remained until T released by death but lor the earthquake, r which knocked down his prison walls, and moreover effected the demolition in such a esillful manner that he was uninjured by the T wreck of the building. When Khodja Ahmet On. realized what had happened. he wisely took to r his heels, and, without reporting himself to di the authorities, soampered to the bay, where I he managed to get on board an English steamer, and, accordlnit to the Leevat Herald, 61 is at present in London. td.

' At T i p_ n about the U ~as auer fixture of in- c in e pity. While 6dt 4W h sanad as ever taken a* the painb to see the inside of an alma i house, there is yet a prevalent idea thatI i almshouses, for the most part, shelter n the unhappy and guiltless poor, whom at unmerciful disaster has followed fast k, and followed faster until it has chased at them to this last refuge--people who he have come from vine-covered cottages, he or tidy rooms up one flight of stairs in he tenement houses, with a big Bible on the table and a pot of flowers in the win F dow, or even from luxurious homes des ,a. olated by commercial panics. As a mat n- ter of fact, the great majority of Ameri m. can indoor paupers belong to what are nt called the lowest classes, and seek the I ch almshouse pot because of unmerciful M disaster, but because of very common es vices. Between half and two-thirds of no them are of foreign birth. .a Any one who has visited many alms ag houses or talked with the men who know e. most of paupers will recognize the same a old story. " Paupers,' said a plain se- spoken almrshouse keeper to a conven 1o tion of Pennsylvania Directors of the Poor-" paupers, though not criminals, k are, so far as my knowledge extends, largely from the lower classes of socie en ty; most of them being ignorant, and or many of them possessed of all the low ik, and mean instincts of human nature, he with scarcely aredeeming quality." The he writer once asked the steward of a large nd city almshouse if he had many persons come to him who had formerly been an prosperous, and had, through disease or cd some other cause not their own fault, en been reduced to seek public help. lie to said, "Never;" then added, "Well, yes, y. there was one man; he had seven horses, Die and he was takeasick. i soldd one ke horse after another. And there was wO another man who was said to have had I n considerable property, but he drank." s I asked him if he had many applicants us who had been decent, industrious, labor a ming people;atidt'hd comsrtherd from any I by other cause than disease or old age. of He answered emphatically, "Not one." 1 Ily This man spoke from n "experience of. 0e nineteen years. ts, Probably, it is a liberal estimate to ga put down one-tenth of the paupers as. as people deserving of sympathy; the other ple nine-tenths are in the almshouse because 4 ite they have not wit enough or eaergy ier enough tolght into prison. Such people nY do not have a hard life in the alms- I su- houses. The squalor does not disturb isb men and women who have known noth ing else; the immorality is a temptation; and even in the worst kept houses there is usually plenty to eat and little to do; in any case, they have not the heavy and no irksome task of thinking for themselves. o.- -Atlantic Mlonthly. 1Is Earwigs. u The insects populary termed earwivgs -ed are known scientifically as forftcule, a ae- name derived from the Latin, and mean er ing "small seissors." The French ap ar pellationis perce oreille, or "ear piercer," and is given on account of a pair of claws or nippers extending from the hinder 7 extremity of the body, which resembles the instrument sometimes used by Jew , elers for boring the ear to admit ear 7 rings. The vulgar name, earwig, isow t ing to the supposed predilection of the 9 insect to enter the human ear; an erro. neous impression, doubtless based on e the instinct of the animal, which teaches it to take refuge in dark cavities. Even if it did enter the organ of hearing, it 1 could do no harm, as it could not plene hf trate any further than the drum, and s might be easily dislodged from the "r passage by a drop or two of oil. Ear wigs dislike light, and live entirely in obscure places, concealing themselves under stones, in ertcks of trees, and sometimes in deep flowers. They are social, and numbersj ae toypd togethqr. ate They are voracious eaters, feeding on the flowers and boring into ripe fruit, or, if ud they can not et table diet, con-i ell tenting them w a or .o Snure.
