TRIBUTES-MONU-I MEXT .TO BE ERECTED SHORT SKETCH OF AN EXCITING EVENT TO THE PEOPLE OF THE DISTRICT. On or about July 3, ISM, Gen. Jubal A. Early appeared on tho Potomac with about 20,000 Con federate soldiers, and crotslng the river burned the Baltimore and Ohio railroad for a consider able distance, proceeded to Hagerstown, Mary land, where he levied a contribution of 20,000, burned some buildings at Wllllamsport, and raid ing up the border ot Pennsylvania, scoured the country lar and wide for horses, cattle, provi sions and money. His movements spread general panic, which caused the Government to call ur gently on Pennsylvania, INew York and Massa chusetts for militia to meet the emergency. Qen. Couch was commanding In Pennsylvania, and Qen. Lew Wallace was In Maryland, and bus. pectlng Early's movements gathered together his little army, numbering about three thousand men, until reinforced by Gen. Rlcketts, with a division or the Sixth corps. On the 8th day ef Jnly Wallace evacuated Frederick City and withdrew his scanty forces to the banks or the Monocacy, which afforded a tolerably defensive position. Un the morning of July 9 skirmishing began, followed shortly alter by hard lighting, which lasted several hours, and General Wallace, find ing that he was being overpowered and the three regiments of veterans promlsod not arriving, or dered a retreat by the Baltimore turnpike. The loss In this action was S8 killed, 579 wounded and ISIS missing a total of 1,909. When reaching New Market, a short distance from the Monocacy. the regiments promised Wallace joined blm and covered the retreat. General Early, after a brief halt on the battlefield, marched on to Baltimore and Washington. HEISTORCTirENTS. On the evening of the 10th Early's advance reached Hockvtlle, Md., where there was a slight skirmish. In the meantime the other two divi sions of the Sixth corps, which had been sent for, were en route, and their arrival, under command ot General H. G. Wright, was anxiously looked lor by the terror-stricken residentsor the National Capital. As a means, however, of Immediate Jiroteetlon all the employees of the Government n Washington were organized into regiments and armed. Major General Meigs being In eom n and or the division and General D. U. Rucker, General Ellas M. Green, Captain D. G. Thomas and Colonel b. W. Owens holding the minor po sitions. On the morning of the'llth they were 2L-arcbed to the scene of action, and occupied the ride-pits between Fort blocuin and Fort Massa chusetts, the garrison still manning- the rorts. In addit.on to these all the soldiers then in hospital who were able to carry a musket were called upon ard volunteered to go to the tront. On i his Eame day, President Lincoln made a visit to Fort Stevens, and, standing on the para pet, took a survey ol tho surroundings. The next skirmish took place at Tennallytown, on the (arms of Messrs. Burcb, Berry and Wilson, the Federal skirmish line extending as Tar as the st'Liiol-bouse, a few hundred yards north of Mr. Wilson's. In this skirmish twenty or thirty of the Union soldiers were killed and wounded by sharp shooters. During the same day reports came into the city that brisk skirmishing was going on In the vicinity of Sliver Springs. On the morn ing of the 12th the famed First Division of tho Sixth Army Corps, under command of General W right, reached the city, and promptly marched to the front. At about noon, the same day, the famous tight took plsce which resulted in the de feat of the Conlcderates and their backward march. i ESTOtDA 'S SERVICES. The fact that many ol those who lell in these engagements on the Confederate side were resi dents ol the District and the adjoining counties, and the further lact that their scattered graves were nut only unmarked, but liable at any mo ment to be entirely obliterated by the steady progress of hnsbandry In that section, a few of the young men of this city and Maryland, Induced by the best ol mot.ves, a sacred bumanity,coocluded to have them irathered together and Dlaced In one spot, where a monument could be placed to I ctmmemorate their death. ' The trustees ol Grace P. E. church, Mont gomery county, Md., near the scene ol the con sul hearing or their endeavors, tendered them a lot in front of the church edifice This oiler was gladly accepted, and the atten tion ol ' hose interested was turned toward raising fuflicicnt funds for the raising of a handsome monument. Subscription papers were put In the hands of some of our prominent citizens, who at once started on their mission, and soon reports showed that the work was going bravely on. After these encouraging results of the attempt to give their comrades a Christian burial It was deter mined to disinter at once the bodies from their resting-places. Mr. C. P. Jones, a resident or Montgomery county, Md., was employed to hunt EJ. ill be bodies ol the Confederates and Tues day he began his work. After several days' 61 search he found the bodies ol fifteen soldiers, and fHMn bj thm resurrected. On the farm of Mr. Lay he found fourteen in one ii, t. r-t l,p by six feet wide, with nothing to indicate that hu man beings were there deposited. At Sligo. a short distance below Mr. Lay's larm, a body was found that had been buried by Mr. Dodge, which had been careiully marked. Over the grave were planks, and frequently flowers were strewn on the grave, many of which yet remained. This soldier was lrom Georgia, and he stated previous to bis death that he was Oak 07 FIVE BROTHERS. His lour brothers he had seen buried. One no- Xlaaihese MJ U j tmr were nerlect. Parts of clothing were StIH hanging to them, the shoes and stockings were In as good order as the day they were buried, and the oilcloths and blankets which a soldier always bore were in many Instances In thexoll. Another fact was that all ot tnese ooaies nau peneci auu Ptb,oneobelngtnV.e Mr. Jones found other graves, dui owing 10 rue bodies being buried so shallow nothing could be found. It being supposed that dogs had carried them away. Alter a diligent search nothing more could be lound, and what remained of the bodies were placed in wooden coffins and removed to Grace church, there to await their reinterment with Christian service. Alter a carerul inquiry, the only body that could be accounted lor was thatof Jas. B. Bland, Sixty-second S'irginia mounted lnrantry, Imbo den's brigade, from Highland county. Virginia Alter the gentlemen In chargo of the arrange ments for the reburialor their comrades had as certained that all had been disinterred who could tie lound, tbey made arrangements for a suitable ceremony. Dr. A. Y. P. Oarnctt, of Washington, was se lected to deliver the address, and Assistant B.sl.tp Piuckncy Invited to deliver a poem. Both ci these eentlcuien signified their willingness to perlurm tiie respective work assigned them, and jisicrday was selected as tho day for the cere mony AT THKCIirRCH. At 920 : . m. a large number o! person assem bled at the corner ol Ninth street and Pennsylva nia avenue, where conveyances were provided, aijd soon they were driven to Grace church. After alighting tbev at once proceeded to view the boxes in whlch'the bones or the ex-soldiers were encased. The sight was sad. In the Inclosure directly in front o: the church, arransed In a row, wero six coffins in which all that remained of fifteen of Early's scldlcrs. who died fighting lor a causo which th.'y thought was right, was deposited. Over tbei-e coffins, covering them, was a black pall, In ihe centre or which was a white crossbar rounded l Itb flowers. In tbe rear ol the remains was a ctos aboul fonr feet blch,tnade or the most exquisite exotic3, while in the rcarot this was a ditch about 15 teet long by a leet wide, In which the coffin were to be permanently placed. Around these wasted forms there wasnoNortb, no r-oulb, no East, no est, but the best of fel lowship in the one common cause of humanity and Christianity. After short reminiscences those assembled pro ceeded into the church, which was already- ceeded into tne cnurcn wuicu was jy 2tfjriaU,?C5iS,flffiSp5 and Maryland, and at 11 o'clock the services tMfc iran. Bisnop iinci.ney, wun iir. iidck, oi nucn. creek church, by bis side, followed by Dr. Elliott, or Ascension church, Washington; Dr. Averlll, rector of Grace church,where the service was per formed, and Dr. Williams, of Christ church, Georgetown, proceeded from the chancel to the front door, whence, after looking on the bodies, they returned to the chancel, when tbe burial service of Protestant Episcopal Church was read by Drs. Elliott, Averlll and Buck. During tbe service, the SCCB6 in the church was most solemn. Many mothers who were present snd bad lost sons in the Conlederate service, sobbed aloud, while In many Instances tears could be seen flowing from the eyes of men. On the conclusion of the reading or the epistle, the ministers, with the congregation, proceeded to tbe grave, when the remaining portion or the service was read, and the bodies were lowered Into the grave by the rollowlng pal'.-bearcrs: Col. Robert 1. Fleming, of the District of Columbia; Uens. P. M. B. Young and P. I. Cook, or Georgia; H Garnet!, Dr. Y'onng, Dr. Boyle, W. Harmon, J. V. XireW, OlPl. ii. t. AJMlu, ,, u.. hjkwue, ww T Howard, Col. A. Herbert The coffins were placed side by side, on each of which was a wreath; that containing the remains or Bland was placed at tbe north end of tbe pit, where If his relatives ever desire to remove it the) will be able to locate it. Rev. Dr. Avcrctt next announced that at the rectory, on the opposite side of tbe road from the church, there would be an aadress delivered by Dr. Oarnctt, and a poem read by Bishop Pinck rey, and those assembled formed in line and proceeded to the parsonage, where Dr. Garnctt was introduced, and maue A LbSOTHT ADDRESS. In concluding he read an extract from General Early's repiit, in which the General stated his reasons lor not marching Into Washington while in her Iront to be owing to the terrible condition oi bis army. 1 he forced marches he had taken and tbe engagements he had been in from Har i er's Ferry to Washington liad so reduced hU rmy that be had but eight thousand infantry nd tut few pieces of artillery. Oa tbe night of uls arrival In front of Washington he had a con erence with bis generals, and It was determined o make the attempt, but when day dawnei he ound the fults manned and tho whole or his 'Derations watched lrom a signal station on the toldlers' Home. In order to save his army, he was obliged to flco as soon as possible. ' The remarks ol Dr. Garnett were listened to v -entively for awhile, but soon there was manl letted a tiresome feeling, which was only quieted by the Doctor reading the report of General Earlv, which was received with three cheers. This was followed by tbe reading or a beautiful and appropriate poem by Bev. Dr. Flockney. Afcer BUhop I'inckney had concluded the - 4diDg or his poem, a Tote or thanks was ex tpncini to Dr. Garnett and the Bishop, after which the line was again formed and marched back to the grave, when the bodies were covered by the ex-soldiers of the Confederate army who were present. This concluded the ceremony, and those assembled dispersed. Among the ex-Confederates present were Maj. Kemper, of Alexandria, Virginia, General Corse, Captain Walker, P. B. Hooe, Thomas Perry, Lieutenants B. Smith Ashford, Frank Hume, J . SI. J ohnson, Henry Bradly, Spencer C. Jones, v. Clesel, John Feleuj, C. Hutton, H. Brewer, C. Orandell, Captain F. N. Carver, H. W.

In the -early part or the week several or the more prominent of the District physicians resid ing in different localities or the city were called upon by a high-toned, well dressed young gentle man, whose style and address would stamp him as worthy of belter In almost any circle. His business with the doctors was plainly stated. He had a relative who was suffering from a pecu liar disease and he wished to make an engage ment with the doctor for a stated hour In order that he might bring the patient to his office and have the benefit ol an uninterrupted examination into the causes of the malady. The proposition was as plausible as the maker, and the result was that four doctors had engagements with the gen tleman frrt' ame purpose. In making his ar raignments for the meeting, by a series of adroit questions, the young man succeeded In finding out the office hours of his to be victims, took a good look about the room and then departed, promising to call at the hour named, and es pecially charging them to be promptly on time and ready for him. There Is where he fooled them all. He called earlier than be had agreed, boldly rang the bell, asked whether the Doctor was In, and when an swered In the negative, as he knew he would be, quietly Informed the servant that he had an en gagement with him at that hour, and took pos session of the office to await his arrival. In a few moments, of course, he had In his pocket all the fine Instruments and other property which could be secreted without fear of detection, and then be walked out, told the servant that he could wait no longer, but would call again. This came he repeated just four times, ana the next day just four doctors made complaint at police headquar ters and told the same story. Detectives Sargent and McEliresh took the case In hand, and after a hunt succeeded In arresting the man and recover ing the property. He will be sent before Judge Snell this morning. J E W CLUB HO USE. KESTJLT OF THE RECENT VICTORIES. One of the first apparent results of the recent Democratic victories, as far as this city Is con cerned, was announced yestcrday.ln the fact that John Chamberlain, the well known sporting man and politician ol New York, had closed the nego tiation, and purchased for the sum or $90,000 the well known Rlggs mansion, at the corner of Nineteenth and 1 streets northwest, and that In future it would be conducted as a first-class club (?) house. First-class club-house In his defi nition of the word means a gambling-house, con ducted alter the plan of his establishment at Long Branch and John Morrlsey's at Saratoga. It will be fitted up In the most expensive man ner, tlie meals and liquors, equaling those served by Welckeror Wormley, will be furnished free in abundance, and any number of private rooms will always be ready for the accommodation or patrons. This house, so well known by Its peculiar and striking Gothic architecture, was built and occu pied by Mr. Biggs, and by him subsequently sold to Mr. Charles Rnapp, a wealthy gun contractor or Pittsburg, Pa., and was, after being altered, used for a time as his residence, and vacated to let It to Sir Edward Thornton, who In turn, vacated It to cccupy the new house tor the Eng lish Legation just completed. In the ruture, as In the past, the house will have for Its guests those high In position, but they will assemble for a far different purpose, and where In the past tho sounds of music snd the hum ol Intelligent conver sation was heard, In the future the clicking of Ivory chips and the sonorous tones or the dealer calling the game will be substituted. TEE LOTUs'cLUB AGAIN. ITS ESAU'S SKIN. BUT JACOB'S VOICE. To the Editor of The Xational Jlevitblimn: Sir: It Is well known that the Lincoln hall concert on tbe 10th (by the Abt Society) Is to In crease the treasury of the Lotus Club. The Ple bians are being used while the Lotus Is behind the scene, and that's where the money goes to support the club In reigning to be "very reserve and exclusive," with a sort or distinction among our people, based not upon decent manners, but on caste of dress, education, employment or means. They say sell ten tickets and we will give you one. There Is a Lotus in the foreground while ''Cape May" looms up In the distance- They say Its a "match" song putting a Bostonlan against a native ana by this little trick we'll excite tbe prejudices of both, through which we will raise money to rekindle the burnt out embers of the Lotus. W. L. Richards. TEE NA VAJOES. THE PURPOSE OF THEIR VISIT TALK WITH GOVERNOR ARNY. In that quiet and comfortable hotel, the Tre mont house, on the corner of Second street and Indiana avenue, are sojourning most remarkable visitors to our city and Government. One of the most honored of our leading pioneers. Governor Arny.late Governor or Nevada, now Indian agent lor tbe Navajo tribe of Indians, Is stoppinz there, with a party of twelve Navajoes, Important roi rcsentatives of their tribe, and accompanied by three exneriepced frontiersmen and lElerproi.cr?, W. Taylor, Jesus AWeo and IL v. Easton, known by the soubriquet of "Wild Hawk." Gov. ernor Arny, the most unwearying and patrlotlcof pioneers, an Intelligent and Christian philanthro pist, is introducing his dnsky wards to tho cities of our Eastern country, with purposes and result the most wise aua taoroi.nt in roxanl of that i ver unsettled vexanda quattio, the relation be tween the conquering white race and its Govern msnt and the receding, yet untamed, aborigines of our country.

Their land,measnrlngsixty miles in length and thirty miles In wiatn, ana lrngaiea oy me river San Juan, is exbaustlessly rich In ores of all kinds, which they cannot work out, and their proposition to exchange It for an equal extent ol land, offering good pasturage for their flocks, giving the agency a central position, seems to bo a lair and Icasible proposition. THE OOYERSMEST will gain the wealth possibly accruing from the great resources or gold, silver, lead, copper, coal and precious stones which underlie the glorious landscape ot that wonderlul country, and the remarkable and Industrious race whose origin involves the deepest ethnological mysteries, and whose flocks or cherished sheep are said to have sprung froin a woolly ancestry brought from the Northwestern passaj.es and Behnog's straits hundreds or years ago, will have peaceral and abundant fields for the culture or grains, and pas turage extensive and rich all tbey ask where they raise their rude " Hogans," as they call their houses.

BEAUT1FULADDITION TO THE CHURCH" It Is gratifying to find that the church edifices or Washington keep pace with' the advanced Im provements or the city, and with the growth or the country. And In this grand march or pro gress no body or Christiana seem to evince more seal and liberality than the Episcopalians. The magnificent marble sanctuary In rapid course of erection for Ascension parish, the recent exten sive renovation or tbe Church of the Epiphany, and the commodious recess chancel just added to Trinity church, attest the enlightened public spirit and substantial prosperity or this portion or our fellow citizens. The ebancel or Trinity church, to bo used to morrow momlng for the first time since Its com pletion, was begun last July, under the superin tendence of Mr. John Eraser, architect, who. also, prepared tbe designs, and Messrs. Baldwin Brothers, contractors. The total outlay Is about 8,000. Two or tbe three windows are memorial windows the eastern one In commemoration or tbe late William B. Todd, esq., long a member and warden or tbe church, and the southern ono In memorlam or the children of William B. Todd, jr., esq. The chancel has been provided with a new communion table and other appropriate lur niture, while tho pleasing effect of the whole upon the Interior of this entire edifice must be seen to be appreciated. We forbear rurther refer ence to It at this time, as tbe church will doubt less tbe attended to-morrow and on succeeding Sabbaths, as In the past, by large Lumbers or our most worthy people. Trinity parish was organized In 1827. Among Is rounders were Messrs. Joseph II. Bradley. Richard S. Cox, G. C. Grammcr, Wm. Hewett, Edward Ingle, Henry M. Moffatt, John A. Smith and R. C. Welghtman, all of whom are numbered with tbe dead except Mr. Bradley and Gen. Welgbtman. Hon. D. W. Mlddleton, the greatly esteemed clerk or the Suprome Court or the United States; Darlns Clagett, Seth !J. Todd, ThcmssL. Smith, (some forty years First Au ditor of the Treasury,) A. O. Dayton, (many years Fourth Auditor,) Dr. Thomas D. Jones, and Hor. John Vf Maury, (several years mayor.) became early and prominent members of the church, and of these Mr. Mlddleton alone sur vives. The first rector was the Rev. Henry Van Dyke Johns, who has been followed successively by the Rev. Cbauncey Colton, Rev. C. Y. Hlgbee. Rev. John Owens, Rev. U. Stringfellow, Rev. C. M. Butler, Rev. George D. Cummins, Rev. Robt. J. Keeling and Rev. Thomas G. Addison, the present rector, who was elected In March, 1867. Trinity congregation worshiped In tbe build ing near tbe City Hall new occupied by tbe Colum bian University lOrUSlHtslecfarSi olid by law ""' '?.iei, Until about 1851, when the edifice corner of Third and O streets was erected. While It has but little to commend it externally. It Is handsomely finished Internally and capable of comfortably accommodating a large audience. Probably the parish was never In a more pros perous cund lttoo than at the present time. Under the charge or Rev. Dr. Addison, a native or Washington, and whose ministrations are equally faithful, affectionate and wise, and are stamped with the Image or his own faith, humility and lore, a commodious rectory has been built adjoin ing tbe church, the church building has been thoroughly repaired, tbe school and lecture-room has been Improved the latter at an outlay or some 43.000 and the confirmations each year have been large tbe class in May last consisting of forty-three per sons. Hon. D. W. Mlddleton and Hon. John M. Brodhead, the Second Comptroller of the Treas ury, are wardens of the ehnrcb. Among the vestrymen may be named Messrs. Nicholas Acker, James M.Mason, D. W. Mlddleton, jr., Thomas S. Moore, O. 11. Morrison, Charles E. Weaser and Dr. Wm. P. Young. Mr. Scaton Perry Is the register. The members of "Old Trinity" recognize the canons or the Protestant Episcopal Church or tho United States, and the Book of Common Prayer as tbeir standard of faith. They are content to follow the old usages or the fathers in tbeir wor ship, and Ignore the new practices which have been obtruded on the denomination In certain quarters, regarding them as Innovations and in tteir tendency destructive of Protestantism. FULL DRESS COATS $15 TO f. A. SAKS Is. CO., 31S SEVENTH STREET WASHINGTON VS. NEW YORK. QUARREL BETWEEN CO-EXECUTORS OF AN ESTATE. In the Police Conrt yesterday the case or Ber. sard Bumsteln, charged with an assault and bat tery on David Fox, or New York, was called. From tbe testimony It appears that both com plainant and defendant are joint executors for the settlement of the estate of the late Henry Burnstcln, of this city. Mr. Fox testified that he resides In New York; that ho came here to see Mr. B., and on Thursday he went there to ask about some papers. He asked to see some papers In relation to a sale which he had made to his brother Henry. Alter looking tbem over he took seme papers, and, placing them In his pocket, walked toward the door, remarking that he wished to show them to bis attorney, W. S. Cox, esq. At mis time liurnstein jumpea auernim, and grabbing blm by the coat, seized bold of bis pocket with great violence, and called him a rob ber and like epithets. A tnssle ensued, In which Burnstcln bit bis arm and finger. At this Fox got excited and went for his opponintwlth a will, or with Ms fists, and Inflicted marks which he bore In the cenrt-room. After hearing further tettlmony.Mr. Bumsteln stated to the court that the papers related to his own personal account against the estate of Henry Burnsteln, amounting to some 430,000. Mr. Fox denied that they were the papers re ferred to, and called Mr B. a liar.

The health officer afterward vaccinated ten of tbe officers at tbe station who bad been exposed totheconta frinn Th Inspector carelnllv fnmlsrated and dis infected tbe station-bouse and next day removed three mattresses (value $9) to the hospital, and caused the two rooms In which tbe lnrected man had lain to be cleaned and whitewashed. Tbe Infected man Is named Henry Thompson, and states that he left New York and pissed through this city to Alexandjla, where be was taken sick, and the case being diagnosed by tbe physicians to be smallpox, he was told he could not remain In Alexandria, but must return to this city wbero accommodations could be found. This he did, seeing and conversing with several people on tbe way.

THE NATIONAL THEATRE MIGNON. Monday evening, the second week of the Kel logg operatic season, will be Inaugurate! by the production, in three acts, of Ambrolse Thomas' opera of "Mlgnon." Tbe vols of Mignon will be snng by Miss Kellogg, and ber personation will be an exquisite and poetical embodiment of the character. The following Is the AltOCHEST Or THE OFERA. Mlgnon, the daughter of noble parents, has, when a child, been stolen from ber ancestral home by the gipsies. Her mother, shortly after this bereavement, dies of grler, while Lotarlo, the broken-hearted father, almost deprived or reason by tbe loss of his daughter, forsakes his home and roams as a minstrel lrom place to place in search oi his darling child. For years Mlgnon, utterly unconscious or ber birth and origin, leads a wandering Ule with the gipsy tribe, or which her beauty renders her the most prominent orna ment. The chler, Glarno, who combines the avo cation or mountebank with that ol gipsy, compels the hapless girl to dance, and go through various other perTormances, In order to obtain money from the inhabitants of the town through which tbey pass, and harshly threatens her with his stick whenever, from fatigue, she refuses to do bis bidding. Wllhelm, a young student oc bis travels, happens on one of these occasions to be a spectator or Glarno's ferocity, and In order to prevent tbe recurrence or such Ill-treatment, he purcbases Mlgnon from ber cruel master. .The friendless Mlgnon. deeply touched by Wilhelm's kindness, gradually conceives for him an ardent and Irrepressible attachment. Wllhelm, how ever, totally unconscious of the affection which his young protege has conceived for him, falls a prey to the fascinations or Flllna, a young actress belonging to a troupe or Thespians, on their way to perlorm at a nelghborlngcastle, where a grand fete is about to take place In honor of the arrival of some illustrious prince. Foremost among the guests Invited to assist at the festivities Is Wllhtlai. Flllna, the beautiful bat coquettish obiectforUiidmiratlon, Is the ldil on he hour, and her success In the " private the atricals " at the castle serves but to Increase Wil helm's fondness fur the fascinating comedienne. Mlgnon, who has accompanied her new master to the castle, watches with silent grief the progress of Wilhelm's love for her rival. At length, de spondent and unhappy, and unable longer to en dure the maddening Jealousy which gnaws her heart's core, Mlgnon is about to throw herself Into a lake adjoining the castle, when, or a sud den, a harp, played by an unseen hand, Is heard, and In another moment Lotarlo appears, and, abandoning her Impious resolve, Mlgnon, little dreaming that It Is her rather who stands before her, flies to the aged minstrel, and Implores bis counsel and protection. Carried away by the vehemence ol her emotion, she prays that ven- feance may overtake tbe abode la which her ated rival Is at this very moment In all the glory or her triumph. Tbo performance Inside the castlo now terminates. Flllna appears, sur rounded by a tumultous crowd of observers, all loud In their praises or the actress's beauty and talents. Mirth and pleasure reign supreme, when, or a sndden. a lurid glare Illumines the scene the castle is in ffames! Tbe aged Lotarlo, whom tbe volco ol nature has unconsciously In terested in Mignon's behalr, has, half crazed as he Is with grief and trouble, lent an ear to MIg. non's rash imprecation and set fire to tne castle. A scene or terrible confusion ensues. Mlgnon is nowhere to be round. Wllhelm, after a thorough but fruitless search for her, rushes wildly amid the burning rafters, and In a few moments reap l eirs, bearing the hapless girl fainting In his a ms. . In a room In Lotarlo's manorial residence, on the banks ol an Italian lake, lies Mlgnon. over taken by a dangerous Illness, resulting from the fearful peril sho has so lately and so narrowly es caped, as well as from tho continued struggle to conceal the affection so long pent np In her breast. Wllhelm, who has meanwhllo assisted Lotarlo In transporting Mlgnon to the borne from which the unhappy parent bad so long been ab sent, has discovered (from the broken sentences which have escaped Mlgnon during the crisis of ber illness) the secret of ber affection for him. Through the medium of a long-concealed casket, containing a girdle warn by Mlgnon when a little child, as well as by her heartful utterance ofthe words or a prayer which ber parents had taught her In her infancy, the entranced Lotarlo dis covers, beyond the p sslbllity of a doubt, that Mlgnon Is bis long lost child. Blessed by tbe recovery of her solo surviving farent, and enraptured by Wilhelm's fervent, hough long delayed avowal of his love for her. Mlgnon. fanned by the restorative breezes of her native bills, banishes forever from her memory the recollections of the troubled past, and con fidingly looks forward to tbe bright and happy luture.

BURNING OF THE CAPITOL CABLE OF THE WESTERN UNION TELEJRA1H COMPANY.
