J'i:TERBBUIia, VA., February 3.—(Spe cial.)—The case of the Commonwealth vs. A. C. Gillisan, who is charged with the Wiling; of C. B. Turner, of Isle of ..Wight county, on the 27th of December last, Avas sent on to the February term of the court of that county for trial by the magistrate before whom he was taken for examina-' tion, after waiving a hearing. The Coun ty Court of- Isle of Wight will meet on Monday, the uth instant. In the event that the -trial is to take place at this term, Gililgan, who has been confined in the jail of "this city since, his surrender, will be taken down to the county court house to-morrow (Sunday) night by Sheriff R. A. Edwards. It is by no means cer tain, however, that the trial • will take place at this term. There are other crim inal cases on "the court's docket, one or more of them involving the charge of murder, in which Indictments have been found, and which will have priority for trial, and as no grand jury has as yet been summoned for the term, it is prob able that Gillisan's case will not be ready for trial, or even called. If, however, the case is to coma up, Sheriff Edwards will be here to-morrow night for his prisoner. Gilligan has made an exceptionally good Prisoner while here, and has behaved himself in the best possible manner. A portion of the large green-house be longing to Mr. W. S. -Young, on Halifax street, was damaged by lire this morning about 4 o'clock. The fire caught from one of the heating flues, and was discovered by a citizen, who was passing by at the time, and who gave the alarm. The house was considerably damaged by fire, ami the plants, mostly palms, injured by water and smoke. Mr. Young-" estimates his loss at KKO or $300. Several members of the Board of Su pervisors of Dinwiddie county visited and inspected our new fireproof Clerk's office to-day, with' the view of gaining infor mation bearing upon a similar building, which it is proposed to prect in their county for the protection of the valuable records of the county. Prince George county is also to have a fireproof Clerk's office. There are on deposit in the Clerk's of fice in this city for safe-keeping a num ber of wills, left there to be probated on the death of the testators. Some of these wills have been there for many years — one of them as long- ago as ISSS. The Probability is that all, or nearly all, of the testators are dead, mid that there is considerable property awaiting claimants. However, as the Clerk has never been notified of the death of any of the testa tors, the wills cannot be probated. The residence of Mr. Sidney Truylor, near Sutherland's Depot, in . Diri^iddie county, was destroyed by fire yesterday, with all the household effects, except one set of furniture. Sparks falling on the roof set the building on fire. MivTraylor had only a small insurance on the pro perty, and his loss falls heavily upon him. Messrs. David Dunlop, Jr., and F. K. Clements left this evening osy pleasure trip to Florida. Some of the representatives of A. P. Hill Camp, who visited Wilcox Post. G. A. R., in Springfield, Mass.', this week, have returned home. They speak in the highest terms of the splendid hospitality and entertainment they received, and of the friendly feeling shown them on all sides. They will long remember their pleasant visit. The Petersburg Granite Quarrying Company have about 100 stone-cutters at work at their quarries, in Dinwiddie county, and expect soon to add many more to this number. The company has a large contract to furnish granite for the government. The police to-day arrested two white men— Joe Dunn alias John Mack, and George Collins— on the charge of taking $0.75 from the person of one Dan Egan yesterday, while coming on the train from Dinwiddie Courthouse vto this city. The men were part, of a gang of TTew York people who had been working on the Richmond, Petersburg and Carolina railroad, and who had been paid off and given up their positions. Some half a dozen of them were arrested here yester day for drunkenness and disorderly con duct, and were fined in the Mayor's Court. The two prisoners .were turned over to the Dinwiddie authorities for Rev. J. R. Matthews, the English Bible expounder, whose recent mission at Grace church was attended by crowded con gregations, passed through this city this morning; en route for Ohio, to fill an en gagement of several weeks there.- In re sponse to urgent requests Mr. Matthews has consented to return to Petersburg in March and conduct services at St. Paul's church. •'Too Great a Rtnlc." (.The Housewife.) Some one-Mrs. Blount I tliink-was speaking of the story current when Lady. Jane Franklin was appealing to kings and councillors for assistance In persecuting the searcli for her husband. According to this rumor, she was exceedingly averse to tins ]aat voyage of Sir John's. So fiter nous was her opposition, and ha was po inflexible in his purpose, that they part ed in coldness, if not in anger. We were wives-all six of us Sphered nbout the tea-table-arid we discus?e,l xhe piteous tale quietly, each heart f' sPP^ lng its own comments and making ■ n* own application, unspoken. until Mrs. Dana said, in a tone that sounded sau'.n ed to my ears, tranquil though she look ° -Yet who of us has not known the se cret bitterness of *uch useless r?\ B ?™?e zs poor i^ady Franklin is said^to have Buffered?

"Her' skirt* wore draggled and limp; all the.curi was out of her hair ami the stray looks streak ed her forehead untidily, her bonnet was hot straight upon her head;, her boots weie muddy, and her hands ungloved- As she stopped short in the drawing-room door, blinking in the glan, of the chande lier and confused at tlto, sight of the gay party. I had but one thought-to set,her out of the way as quickly, as possible. 1 said to myself afterwards that it was for her sake as much'- as 'for. my own. 1 lieu in saying it, and; I knew it. "I was seated near the door, chatting with a dashing young fellow, a so-called wit"' with an unsparing, tongue-.v " 'Ah Mary!' I said, wlthiut moving, and in 'a civil patronizing way; 'please step into the library- and wait for me ; "She went with never ■ a word.

We had some music and a great deal of badinage and much laughter. I rang for. cake and coffee at, nine o'clock,, and the visitors stayed half .an hour, long- 1 cr.: J had 'a good time' in spite of con- science. I .could easily .make it all" right with Mary, who < was -no "doubt amusing herself- with a book. She had the sweet est, disposition in the: world* and was al ways reasonable. '-She would understand Just how it happened, being as much, at: home in our hours' as in her own. Ha'a my mother been in, I should have sent Mary up to her. As it wa^s what could I do but get her; out of the range of criti cal eyosi? "Well, my fashionables took leave at last, and in the hall one of the -.ladies paid to me: 'I any afraid we have been inconsiderate, in keeping you all' this time 1 from your'— l caught the motion to say 'friend"' upon her lips, then she changed the form and said 'your visitor.' "I answered more loudly than I-knew: 'That. ls all right! My motto is, "Pleasure before business." ' "Mary met me in t ue library door, when they had gone. She hau had commissions to do for. me in town, .and she held my memorandum' in one hand, with some money. She was very pale and spoke fast breathing short and irregularly. " 'I got you everything you ordered. Carry and here is your change. Every thing will be sent by express, except this— giving mf?' a small box. As you wanted that in time for your mother's birthday, day after to-morrow. I thought it better to bring it to' you myself. No. I can't pit down. I wish you could have seen me when I came in. I have waited a long time. I ought 'to have' been at home an hour ago. I came by purposely to give you the box.' Then, with the wtraugest Fmile I had ever seen on li^r lace, she paid: 'But. you pee, with me business came before rest" and berl.' "I felt the color flash to my forehead. It is always exa?persating to have your own words flung into your teeth. -■" 'I am sorry you put yourself to so much trouble.' I'Vaid. stiffly.- 'There was no necessity for it. T could have sent for the box in the morning just c? well.' "Then Fometliing pushed me on to add 'Of course I am greatly obliged io you. But, while "we are speaking frankly, let me repeat a clever thing- you said the other day— "He who reminds me of favor cancels it." ' "She laughed as queerly as 3he had smil ed. " 'So be it! We will consider all favors done and received cancelled up to date— and forever! Good night!' : '.'I was too angry to stop her as she went away at that. I stayed angry all night and the next day, and on that even ing of the second Oay my father asked mi* at supper-Urn^ if -I knew that Mary Allen was dangerously ill. He had met lie.r father on the street. She had had a chill on the train coming home, after get ting soaked in a shower; had kept on her wet clothed for hours, and arrived at home after 10 o'clock, delirious. Pneunion is of the gravest type had set in that night. "I rushed around to Mis. Aliens Hke a ir.ad creature. Mary was too ill to be seen by anybody. "Mrs. Allen was very kind but would not let mf» so up-stairs. " 'We have heard from a. friend, who was on the train with .her Tuesday even ing that she had a chill on the way out. She made light of it, and, said she would be all right next day. She readied the station at 3 o'clock. Delirium must have come on nt once. for- she did not set homo until 10" The narrator's face worked convulsive ly;.'''-.and I put a deprecating band upon '^'Don't go on!" I pleaded. "But we thank you for the solemn lesson." She rallied voice and composure. "There is little else to tell. She <31ed four days from the evening- of her call upon me. She never recovered con sciousness.; That was thirty years ago. Mrs Sargeanfs voice "never 'breaks up a silence, it stole 1 out of it presently into gentlest speech: "I am literally afraid to part in anger from anybody. The risk is too great." And" Mrs Blount in something betwixt a'sob and a laugh: "I need:t be shamed then, to tell that I have, again and again called my husband back from the front door, and even from the corner of the street to ask forgiveness for a hasty word I always say to myself, by the time he has turned, "'What if he should never come home alive" As Mrs. Sargeant says, I can't take the risk." - "Is is coincidental-or providential-that I should have clipped this from a paper to-day, and put it into my pocket-book, for future reference?".; said Mrs. bterhng in grave tenderness.... ,". I wish I could convey to the reader s ears with the lines, the cadences of the voice that rendered them for us: I might have said a. word of cheer Before 1 lex him go; H's haggard visage haunts me stiu.

Among partisans of both sides deep grief is manifested, and 'already a move ment has : been, started to erect a fitting monument to Mr. Goebel's memory, on the spot in the State House grounds v/here-he was shot. . ' No. arrangements, have as yet .been made for the funeral. Plunged in grief, and in the death chamber of their bro ther, Arthur. and Justus Goebel and Mrs. Braunaker have given out no intimation, of their wishes, and probably no definite arrangements will be-ma<le until to-mor row. . ;- . " It is understood that a request will be made, on behalf of the citizens of Frank fort, that Mr. Goebel's last resting-place be in the cemetery here, where lie buried Daniel Boone and Vice-President Andrew Johnson. "NOT IN" VIOLENCE TO GOD'S WORD. 1 ' Early, to-day, at Mr. Goobel's request, former Congressman Hendricks was call ed, and Mr. Goebel asked for some of hfe legal advisers, :wlth' whom lie wished to confer. Later, at Mr. Goebel's request, Chaplain Wallace, of the Kentucky peni tentiary, an intimate friend, was sent for,; and. .the two had a short conversa tion! "Lew," said Mr. Goebel, "I wish to announce to the world that I do not hold myself in open violence to the Word ot God." The hypodermic injections afforded Mr. Goebel some temporary relief, but the sufferer, for the first time in his long, weary struggle for life, had apparently lost his indomitable courage. '.'Doctor," said he, feebly, to Dr. Mc- Cormick, who stood at his bedside, "I am afraid now that I am not going to get over this." ■ ,I;t. McCorniick endeavored to cheer ths fast-failing man, but the latter soon re- Ic-psed into a condition of semi-conscious ness. I'IELDS TO INEVITABLE. : - About 1 o'clock he roused himself again, and calling Dr. McCormick to ■■ his -bed side, said: "Doctor, am I going to get well? I. want to know the truth, for I have several things to attend to." ''Mr.'. Goebel, you have but a few hours to Jive," replied Dr. McCormick. • Mr. Goebel was silent Tor a moment, •.iie'iv calling his brother, Arthur Goebol. tj his side, he asked that the physicians and nurses retire. Then, for -20 minutes, iho rtying man was left wilh his brother arid I.is sister, Mrs. Braunaker. CHURCH MINISTRATIONS. -Late this afternoon, to the weary watchers at the bedside, it was apparent thiit'-fthe end was not far off, and Rev. Dr. Taliaferro, of the Methodist church of Frankfort, was sent for. He came at once. Softly entering 1 the death cliarriber, he crossed over to where Mr. Goebel lay gasping- for breath, and kneel ing, ai the side of the bed, prayed earn e.-tly. With tears streaming down their laces, Mrs. Braunaker and Arthur Goubel knelt at the bedside, also. Then Mr. Talia'ferro arose, and opening his Bible, read a few selected verses I'rrm the Epistles of St. James. As the words .of the apostle were read by the divine, sthe dying- and apparently uncon scious man stirred slightly. - Quickly leaning over his brother, Arthur Goebel s.-iid: "Will, Dr. Taliaferro is here." No. response came from the dying- man, but as Arthur Goebel leaned over him,-look ir.£ anxiously for some sign of recogni tion, a. look of intelligence came into the half-closed eyes, and it was apparent that Mr. Goebel understood what was said to him?: SERVICES IN HOTEL. _ Shortly after this Dr. Taliaferro left the room, and descending the stairs, en tered the ladies' reception-room, where, at the request of several ladies, the Wives ;: of ■ legislators, he held brief ser vices. Then, the divine again went to Mr Goebel's bedside, and about 5 minutes afterwards took his departure. Shortly after 4, o'clock the dying man was again "given oxygen, and again a slight rally resulted, but it was only tem porary. His respiration gradually" grew more laborious, and rose to 53, while his pulse 'dropped to liO. At (j o'clock. Dr. Hume left the bedside, and "reported to the anxious watchers at the hotel that death was. a matter of but a few mo ments' time. Tlie oxygen treatment was used constantly ia a desperate effort to keep Mr. Goebel nlive until Justus Goe bel arrived, but no effort was made to arouse the. unconscious man. PHYSICIANS WITHDRAW. As Dr. Hume departed from the room the amicted ;bfother and sister turned to Dr. McCormick and' requested that they bo left entirely alone with their brother, who was' fast sinking, and to both physi cians apparently in articulo mortis. The physicians silently withdrew, and closed the doors of the room, leaving behind them the grief-stricken brother and sister. Silently, they knelt at the bedside, their eyes fastened upon the half-open eyelids of the unconscious man. He gave no sign of further recognition, and yet he was not absolutely unconscious. Scarcely breathing themselves, the brother and sister bent over the death-bed, listening to the short, sharp gasps of death, and praying that the life might be spared until their brother, Justus, should ar rive. Their prayers were in vain. THE END. Even as they watched the pulsations became slower and slower, gradually, but steadily, growing weaker and weaker, and with a slight quiver of the eyelids, one breath, deeper than the rest, a pause, a gasp, the life that had been battling' so valiantly against the; assassin's bullet since last Tuesday morning flickered out. Death has claimed its victim, and the brother 'and sister, bowed by sorrow, whose pangs v,-ere intensified by the knowledge that a few miles away, hurry ing to them, was their brother, Justus, who would arrive "too late, sat down upon the death-bed alone with their dead brother. ..ARRIVAL OF JUSTUS., - Not a sign from the room, to apprise the anxious watchers m the hotel cor ridor that Mr. Goebel had passed away. The stricken brother and sister wera left alone, undisturbed, while the two phy sicians outside the door anxiously - look ed at their watches as the minutes flew by, fearing' the truth, yet wondering at the long silence. Finally, at 7 P. ' M., the train bearing Justus Goebel cams in. At the" station to meet him were Urey Woodson, Samuel Shackelford, clerk of the. Court of Appeals, and Mayor Rhinoch. of Covington.; They met Mr.. Goebel at the car steps. /.'ls he dead? Tell me; !s he dead?" were .the first words ha ut tered. "He is not dead," was the assurance given him by, the. friends, who had>rio inkling of the truth. JUSTUS IN DEATH CHAMBER;- .: The party entered a carriage, and ; In five minutes— at 7:os— arrived: at,':tha Capi tol Hotel. With teurs .streaming . from his eyes, Mr. Goebel was conducted to the chamber where, lay his brother. ; A rap at tha door was answered ;by Arthur Goebel, who . silently : drew ; his . brother in and closed the door. Five minutes later Arthur Goebel - again - opened the door and motioned to - the ■ two . ptiysi-' cians. ; "Ho- died at. 6:43 o'clock, palnless ly," was all ho 1 said, and then closed the door.
