Prospects of Havluc It Rowed on the Po tomac. It may now be regarded as a settled fcet that the next regatta of the National Amateur Rowing Association will take place in this city on the Potomac. Some time ago it was intimated by the executive committee of the National Associa tion that if it was desired that the next regatta should be held in tbis city, and the necessary in ducements as to expenses and transportation were satisfactorily arranged, the committee was favor ably inclined to selecting the Potomac for its next races. Upon the strength of these representations the Analostan Boat Club held a meetingsome weeks ego and appointed a committee of three to confer with similar committees tobeappoiutedbythe To toraac and Clumbia Club: This joint committee of nine have held several meetings and have mapped out a plan of operations which will enable them to meet all the requirements of the executive com mittee of the National Amateur Rowing Associa tion and secure the location of the next regatta st Washington. This much is regarded as assured from the recent correspondence between the com mittees. Already methods have been devised to raise the necessary funds, and it is expected that the regatta will take place about the 10th of Sep tember next over a course to be selected on the Potomac From letters received by the committee it is evident that the selection of Washington meets with the general approval of rowing men all over the country. Assurances have already been received that clubs from Portland, He., Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Norfolk, Savannah, New Orleans, and Galveston, as well as from many of the cities on the great lakes, will be here. It is proposed that thercgatta proper shall occupy three days, and efforts are now being made which promise to be successful to induce Hanlan, Ross, Plaisted and Kennedy to select the same course sad lime for their great double scull race for the championtbip of the world, which, with other attractions, would fill out the week. CORRECTING' HISTORY HOW THE TWO REBEL SPIES DIED. Another Eje-WItncss Giies an Interesting Account of the Capture and Hanging of Colonel Iwllliamg and Lieutenant Peter, of the District of Columbia. Referring to the remarkable article published in The Republican of the 5th instant, from the pen of Colonel Prosser, relative to the military arrest and execution of Colonel William Orton Williams and Lieutenant Walter Gibson Pe ter as spies, at Franklin, Tenn., in June, 1863, Dr. Wilson Hobbs, late surgeon of the Eighty-fifth Indiana Regiment, writes fromKnightstown, Ind., as follows : " This is the first detail of all the facts in this tragic occurrence ever published, and the only accountsoiar as I know, except a statement whichlmadeatthetimeto the Nashville Timet, and which was copied by most of the newspapers on this continent and in Europe. Harper's Weekly of July 5, 1863, published thisletter.withafullpage illustration of the execution, drawn by a sol dier of the Seventy-eighth Illinois Regiment. I am surprised at the accuracy with which the writer has stated the facts in this case, so long a time having intervened, unless he were, like my self, an eye-witucss to them all. He has, how ever, fallen into some errors in his statement, which it is the purpose of this communication to correct First, he says: 'Just as they were passing out of the fort' (Granger) ' Colonel Louis D. Wat kins, of the Sixth Kentucky Cavalry, entered on horseback, followed only by an orderly. As he passed Williams he caught a glimpse of the side of his face, and a consciousness of recognition came over him, though he could not at once determine or locate the individual who had attracted his at tention. Coming up to Colonel Baird, who was near at hand, he inquired WHO TIIE HEX WEEE he met coming into the fort Colonel Baird re plied, 'They are inspecting officers of tb United States army who have been making us a visit Colonel AYatkins remarked, ' I think there must be some mistake about this. I think I recognize one ot these men as an old army officer now in the confederate army.' (My paper is torn and de faced, but I think the quotation is quite or nearly correct.) ily remembrance is that Colonel Wat kins was in the fort when these strangers arrived, or came soon afterward, and that he had all the opportunities to determine who they were that Colonel Baird had. Neither Colonel Baird norCol onel Vt'atkinit had any suspicion of their true character until they were mounted and struck their horses with spurs to .depart. I have often heard Colonel Baird say that when their horses' heels struck into the air the thought came like a thunderbolt that they were spies, and he immediately turned to Colonel Watkins and ordered them brought back. My statements are supported by the fact that Wil liams and Peter were overtaken by Colonel Wat kins just at the bridge where the railroad crosses the highway south of the Harpeth, les3 than one quarter of a mile from Colonel Baird's tent. The race was too short at the sweeping pace the rebels were fleeing to have allowed a capture at this point with the delay the circumstances related by Colonel Prosser would necessarily have occasioned. Again, Colonel Williams gave it as a reason that he did not fire upon Colonel Watkins when halted, and by this means have made their escape, that he knew Colonel Watkins, and, knowing him, he did not wish to kill him. It is not likely that he risked his life thus upon a recognition MADE BY A PASSIXG GLANCE. Again, after Colonel Baird sent his mesage of inquiry to General Garfield at Murfreesboro', and before the order to try them by court-martial came to hand, a period of two or three hours intervened. During this time Messrs. Williams and Peter were prisoners in Colonel Baird's tent, which was sur rounded by a very strong guard. This interval was spent in conversation, chiefly between Col onels Watkins and Williams, in relation to persons and affairs about Washington, in the various attempts of the former to identify the latter, who made many bold ventures to conceal himself. When too closely pursued Colonel Williams would reply, 'You will know all about it after a while,' by which it was evident that he expected the or der for court-martial and full exposure of the truth. All that Colonel Watkins' most searching inquiries developed prior to the court-martial was that these gentlemen were from Washington that Colonel miliams had been, if he was not then, In the regular army, and the suspicion of their not being what their papers made them was only strengthened by the fact of their endeavors to con ceal themselves. Colonel Watkin3 made no claim, I am very sure, that he had over before seen either of the strangers, but was greatly surprised that he could not recognize and place them. TniS CORRECTION IS IMPORTANT only in the-fact that the credit of the discovery of the true character of thestrangers maybe properly placed. The writer of the article places the first thought of danger and suspicion to the credit of Colonel Watkins. My knowledge is that it belongs wholly to Colonel Baird. Both these gentlemen are now dead Colonel Watkins fell with his armor on before the close of the war; Colonel Baird yesterday (March 8, 1881), in the Indiana hospital for the insane, after many years of suffer ing but history should be true to them notwith standing. Colonel Prosser states again that after the arrest Colonel Watkins took the prisoners to his own quarters, and that Colonel Baird went over there to meet them; again examined their papers, and afterward their stvords, &c. In this he Is certainly wrong. I am very sure Colonel Baird did not leave his own tent, but that as soon as Colonel Watkins had procured a guard in his own camp he went with the prisoners to Colonel Baird's tent at the fort. No such indignity was offered them as to draw their swords from their scabbards, or demand the uncovering of their heads until the court-martial was convened. Here the testimony of the swords and dress was demanded and taken this wise: Colonel Baird asked them to stand up and be examined. They submitted to the inevitable without hesitation. My remem brance is that Colonel Baird first drew the sword of Lieutenant Peter and found it etched ' W. G. Peter, P. A. C.S. A.' Ilis was returned to its place, and Colonel Williams' in like manner uncovered. IT EXPOSED THE NAME and was marked ' Shilob,' with some distinguish ing rebel mark i hich I do not now remember. Up to this time they had not uncovered their heads in our presence. Thej wore caps, covered with white havelocks, which fully concealed the cap and covered the shoulder Colonel Baird demanded their caps, which, when stripped of the havelocks, proved of the confederate pattern. The caps were then returned to them. During this proceeding no word had been spoken. Colonel Baird then ad dressed them in these words: 'Gentlemen, this was damned well played.' Colonel Williams re plied: 'Yes, and it came damned near being a success." The difference of personal courage of the two men mentioned by the writer of the article of the 5th instant I do not now remember. My recollection is that the Lieutenant met his fate with as much resoultion and bravery as the Col onel. They embraced each other very ten derly, but I heard no words spoken, although I was not more than twenty feet distant, and it was my business to observe all that occurred. The only words spoken at the place of execution were the expression of thanks by Colonel Wil liams to Colonel Baird for the respect he had shown them in having the guard reverse their arms. Colonel Prosser did not mention in his statement regarding the disposition of the re mains for burial ; that they were encoffined with ropes still upon their necks, having been cut ten or twelve inches above theliead. Nor docs he say that two or three hours after the burial the bodies were disinterred for further search, with the hope that papers concealed in their clothing might be found which would clear up THE MYSTERY OF THE TRAGEDY. This search, however, was fruitless, there being only found three confederate notes, which were hid in Colonel Williams' cap. Two of these were two dollar bills and one five-dollar bill. The five-dollar bill is still in my- possession. I can fully corroborate the statements of the writer in relation to the trepidation of Colonel Baird at the thought of having to execute these men. A short time before the receipt of the second dispatch from General Garfield I retired to my tent and laid down to take some rest. A few. minutes afterward Col onel Baird came to me and said : Hobbs, what in the name of God shall I do? General Rosecrans says : Try these men by drum-head court-martial, and if found guilty, hang them immediately.' I replied: 'Colonel Baird, there is "but one thing to be done; we must execute the order of the commanding General, however revolting the duty may be.' We came near an escape from the execution of this order, however, in a way that is not related by Colonel Prober, the writer. At the same time that Colonel Baird communicated with General Rosecrans at Murfreesboro' by tele graph he also sent dispatches to General Gordon Granger, who was our corps commander, then at Triune, Tenn., by tho flag signal corps, and but a short time after the execution he received an order from General Granger to send the prisoners to him. This was too late to save us from the sad duty, or to give these miserable men another chance for their lives. Possibly, had there been less delay in our communication with corps headquarters, the course of justice, as estimated and administered by the code of war, would have been less speedy and more relenting."

And the police are very dainty with them. The Commissioners yesterday issued an order that no stalls in the Corcoran Market should be rented after July 1 , 1881. This was made necessary on account of that part of the square where the market now stands having been desig nated by Congress for school purposes. The train due here on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad at 6:37 last evening, Conductor J.

The intelligence of the sudden death of Mrs. Elizabeth Cross, the mother of Sam Cross, in East Washington yesterday, will bring a pang of sadness to those acquainted with the venerable lady. Two of her daughters are the wives of Charles Shclsc and William A. Cowan, esq. T. B' Cross, jr., and Frank Cross, of the Navy-Yard, are her sons. She was highly respected and had a host of friends. A delegation of colored employees, headed by H. Lee and S.D.

Gossip About the ippolnrmenti The Latest Slate for Washington Observance of the Sabbath Memorial Services Held Yesterdaj Missionary Collections. Special to The Republican. j. Martinsbuhg, "W. Va., March 14. As the session of the Baltimore Annual Conference M. E. Church draws to a close the interest In the ap pointments in which so many ministers and con gregations are concerned becomes intensified. From all information that can be obtained It ap pears probable at the present time that the follow ing appointments to Washington churches will be made: North Capitol, Rev. F.Havenner; Memorial M. E. Church. Rev. W. M. Hammack; Wesley Chapel, Rev. W.I. McKenny; Foundry, Rcv.W. F.Ward; Metropolitan, Itev. R. N. Baer; Waugh, Rev. L. M. Gardner; Ryland, Rev. W.M. Downs; Mount Zion, Rev. S.

When the conference assembled this morning the report of the committee on the Frcedman's Aid Society was then presented to the conference. By order of tho General Conference, the poor white class were also includedin the distribution of the funds of this society, who, without any fault of their own, have been left without the simple rudi ments of an education. In view of thegreat needs of the society It has recommended that $125,000 be raised by the whole church. The assessment made upon the Baltimore Conference forthls cause last year was 81,500 nnd receipts-were ?S1G.16. The conference was recommended to place itself upon record as fully agreeing with the high purposes and aims of this society. Messrs. Griffith and Baker, of the Maryland Sun day School Union, addressed a respectful letter de siring to know specificaUy what were the objec tions really made agaiubt that organization. It was referred to the Sunday-school committee for a reply. The report of the committee on SABBATH OBSERVANCE lamented the growing tendency of the times to ignore the moral obligations of this divine insti tution by failing to observe the fourth eammand ment, viz.: " In it thou shalt do no manner of work." They most heartily indorsed the effort of several camp-meeting associations to maintain a proper observance of the Sabbath, and hoped that all such institutions would emulate the exam ple of those who had already acted. The report was adopted. In the report of the committee on tracts and Sunday-schools it was recommended that Meth odist help in the International lessons, as well as the lessons themselves, should be used, as they were well adapted to the needs of our Sunday schooLs, but that the teaching of the Catechism, as the Discipline requires, should not be neglected ; that great care should be taken in the selection of proper books for the Sunday-school libraries. As the Conference sustains no relation to the Mary land Sunday-School Union, they recommended that all the collections should be appropriated to the support of our own Sunday-School Union. The committee on education reported that 8419.53 had been collected, and by motion of Rev. Dr. W. S. Edwards the Conference ordered it to be sent to the treasurer of Dickinson College. The Rev. Dr. J. O. Clark, of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, was introduced to the Conference, and addressed the ministers concerning the Me morial Church to John Wesley, at Savannah, Ga., now partially erected. The steward's report of conference claimants was adopted. About 38,745 in claims were allowed, and collection to meet the claims was SG,132, or about sixty-eight per cent of the amount. On motion of Rev.J.W. Whecler.a vote of thanks was passed by the Conference to the Mount Vernon Place M. E. Church, Baltimore, Md., for the pro' ceeds of a concert held there for the benefit of the above collection. The Conference requested that the Rev. A.W. Rudisill prepare a memoir of the Rev. T. S. Hardin, just deceased. At ten a. m. the ME3IORIAL SERVICE of the ministers and widows who died during the year were introduced by the Bishop announcing the 979th hymn, "Asleep in Jesus; blessed sleep." Rev. Joel Brown read the obituary of Rev. Charles Cleave, and Rev. A. H. Ame3 performed the same office forthe late Rev. James Bunting, of St Mary's County, Md. Rev. Joel Brown read a. memoir of Mrs. S. S. Webster, the wife of Rev. J. G. G. Web ster, a secretary of the Conference. The commit tee on memoirs was requested to prepare notices of the deaths of Mrs. Hyson, Mrs. McCartney and Mrs. Larkin, to be printed in the minutes. Rev. A. S. Hank delivered a plain, practical and car nest missionary sermon from Luke xxiv, 46 and 47. The committee on missionary contributions re ported that the following amounts had been re ceived from each district, viz: Baltimore, 87,783.07; East Baltimore, SG.OSG.GS ; West Baltimore, 85,099.76 ; Washington, 83,947.96, and Cumberland, 81,711.87, the total being 82 1,632.31, an increase over last year ofSl.240.29. The Rev. E. E. Anderson was granted a location at his own request The Rev. R. E. Bishop, on account of general failing of health, requested a supernumerary rela tion, with work for one year, and it was granted. The case of Rev. George Cecil, who desired a supernumerary relation, was postponed until to morrow. The committee on tho Baltimore City Mission and Church Extension Society reported that though the work had not been specially pursued for a few years, yet there was a necessity for such an organi zation by which the masses of the people who never attend church might be reached. Rev. S. H. Cummings had been engaged in the undenomina tional work of a similar character, by which many souls had been converted and much good done Pending the discussion of tho report of public.! tion of the Baltimore JTetliodist as a weekly paper, the Conference adjourned. The Rev. J. O. Clarke, Savannah, Ga., gave a free lecture at three p. m., in which John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, was highly eulogized, as the greatest reformer since Martin Luther. This evening a lame and enthusiastic temper ance meeting was held in the church, in which the benefits of local option and prohibition were earnestly and eloquently pleaded by the Revs. J. McK. Reilly and Thomas Poulsen.D.D. Rev. W. T. D. Clemm presided. FARN HAM'S CASE. Broker Campbell's Connection With It Another Talk With Official. Farnham, the ,ex-board of audit clerk, who has confessed to having abstracted about 811, 000 or canceled sewer certificates from the board of audit office, had another interview with the District Commissioners yesterday. Nothing was elicited beyond what was stated by Farnham in his confession published in The Republican yes terday morning. The purpose of the talk was to determine if possible how far the District is responsible for losses which persons have suf fered through the circulation of these worthless certificates. Farnham is still at Police Headquar ters, though he is not detained as a prisoner. Mr. G. W. Lamer has made an affidavit, in which he say?: "Referring to the alleged confession of George H. Farnham, published in the morning papers, I desire, in justice to myself and Peter Campbell, whose names are mentioned as having received some of the bonds, alleged to have been stolen by Farnham, that he never told me, nor in anyway intimated to me, that the bonds were stolen by Farnham or any one else, or that there was anything crooked about them. I received at onetime from Farnham 81,400 in bonds, and sold them to Peter Campbell at forty cents on the dol lar. It was a bona fide transaction on my part and that of Campbell's. I had no intimation from any source that the bonds were stolen, nordidl say or intimate any such thing to Campbell. The state ment of Farnhani, as published, so far as it relates to his alleged conversation with me in relation to the bonds, and my alleged conversation about Campbell is wholly false. On the contrary, Farn ham told me at the time that the bonds he let me have he got from New York. There was nothing about the bonds or the transaction to create any suspicion in my mind of anything wrong or 'crooked,' and I had no such information or sus picion." Normal CInsseB to be 31cltl. The Sunday-school Union held its reg ular monthly meeting at the chapel of the Young Men's Christian Association, Mr. John B. Wight in the chair and H. K. Simpson secretary. The prin cipal business before the meeting was the taking of final action on the holding of a series of normal class meetings under the leadership of Rev. Mr. Hurlburt, of Plainfield, N. J. It was finally de cided to inaugurate such a series, the expenses of the undertaking being S150, which will be covered by the sale of COO tickets at twenty-five cents each. 9 Sainz a. Kail road Company. John F. Peyton yesterday, through his counsel, Messrs. Merrick and Mattingly, entered suit against the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad Company, claiming 820,000 damages. The plainUfl alleges that he was an employee of the Virginia Midland Railroad Company, and on the ISth of November was on a train in the discharge of his duty, when, through negligence, an engine of the defendants collided with the train, caught the plaintiff between the platforms, whereby he was seriously injured and crippled. AMUSEMENTS THIS WEEK. Pcabody Orchestra, the Three Theatres, and Blind Tom. Lincoln Hall was well filled last night with a most cultivated audience, embracing nearly all of our local musicians and those who have edu cated musical tastes, to listen to the first subscrip tion concert this season by the Peabody Orchestra, under the auspices of the Athenaium Club, of this city. The large attendance, the character of the audience, the close attention given, and the dis criminating applause evidenced the extent and degree of musical culture in this city, and showed how large a number appreciated the efforts of the club in providing entertainmects restricted to the rendition of the highest character of musical composition. The Peabody Orchestra, while not so large as the organization over which the match less Thomas wields the baton, is composed of first class musicians, and, under the skillful direction and instruction of Anger Hamerik, has reached a point of excellence that can hardly be surpassed. The instruments arc well balanced and the members execute in perfect precision, time, and harmony. The programme last night embraced selections from the master com posers during the period from 175G to 183G, and was as follows : Mozarf s symphony in G minor, scena and cavatina from Meyerbeer's opera of "II Crociato in Egitto," the vecal solo by Miss Henrietta Alice Hunt; Beethoven's violin concerto in D major, the solo being executed by Mr. Fritz Gaul and the minuet and scherzo by Emil Hartman. While each number was thoroughly .pleasing and attractive, perhaps the most satisfactory was Beethoven's concerto, which was filled with a wealth of melody and an abun dance of harmony, which only that giant mind that more than any other composer understood the full possibilities of an orchestra could present The rendition of the solo by Mr. Gaul proved that gentleman's thorough mastery of the violin, and his finished and correct method and "brilliant ex ecution were justly applauded. Miss Hunt dis played a soprano voice of superior culture and power, and was most favorably received. The next concert in the series will take place on the 29th instant. HIUON xobi.es the pnessrx. Mr. Milton Nobles, a gentleman who has won his way into recognition by indomitable perseverance, presented his play entitled "The Phoenix" at Ford's Opera House last night The piece, whflo it is of the most sensational character, affords an opportunity for some good acting, and Mr. Nobles himself, in the respective roles of Carrol Grata and Jim Bludio indicates the possession of decided talent. "His company is peculiarly adapted to the play, and all contribute to its success. Miss Dolly Woolwine, the leading lady, shows considerable dramatic ability, while in addition she possesses graces of person and manner that make her at once a favorite. "The Phoenix " will be repeated to-night and to-morrow night, and at the matinee to-morrow. NATIONAL THEATRE " TOE TOURISTS." "The Tourists" again appeared at the National Theatre last evening, and were welcomed by a good-sized audience. There have been some changes since the company were last here, and those decidedly for the better. The fun is continu ous and the laughter hilarious during the entire action of the piece. The burlesque scene from "II Trovatore," with which the second act closes, is well worked up, and shows the musical capacity of the members of the troupe most effectively. The quartette "Our Choir" is exceedingly well rendered, and tne imitations by Will H. Bray, the Jodel by Miss Reifferth, the Wetlern. Union Telegraph Boy, are all loudly encored. " The Tourists " will take their amusing trip every night during the week, and on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. THEATRE COSHQUE. The reappearance of Mr. George C. Charles at the Comique last night showed how great a favorite that gentleman has become in this city. His drama, with the highly sensational title of the "Skeleton Hand," is filled with startling incidents and is above the average productions of its class. The specialty performers Frank McNish, the Lelaud Sisters, Healey and Saunders, Alfred Lis ton, Joe Miller, W. H. Dauvers, P. M. Allison, and others arc all superior performers In their several acts and all have their special admirers. The regular stock company is large and efficient, and the whole entertainment is fully equal to that pre sented by any similar establishment in the country. BUND TOM. The success of Blind Tom in this city has induced him to prolong his stay for three nights, and he may be listened to at Odd Fellow's Hall up to and including Wednesday night. Aside from the in terest that attaches to his performances on account of his infirmity, he has acquired a mastery over the piano that is truly remarkable, and he executes with equal facility the most sparkling dance mil-tic and also the severest classical compositions of the great masters. A BAFFLED CONSTABLE. An Cxcitluc autl Anniiltij; Scene on Penn sylvania Avenue. One of the most conspicuous officers of the law in the District is a constable named Ho ratio R. Maryman, who has become well known for the extreme measures to which he resorts in executing the law and the bull-dog tenacity with which he clings to a case entrusted to him. But Horatio was overmatched yesterday, as the follow ing transaction will show: For some time past the premises No. 318 Pennsylvania avenue have been occupied by tenants not satisfactory to the owner, and he entrusted to the doughty constable the task of dispossessing them. Maryman about a week ago moved some furniture into one of the rcjoms aud settled himself to catch the other inmates napping. He became so obnoxious that it was de termined to get rid of him, and yesterday morn ing affairs reached a climax. The time of the occupants was nearly up, and Maryman sallied forth to secure a writ of eject ment. When he returned to the house he discovered that during his temporary absence the enemy had dispossessed him by putting all his furniture out on the sidewalk and locked the front door on him. This was not at all pleasant for the limb of the law, and he decided to force an en trance. He procured an axe and sounded a parley by gently tapping at one of the panels. An excited elderly female appeared at one of the upper win dows and asked what he wanted. "I want to get in," said Horatio. "I'd like to see you," was the reply. "If you don't let me in I'll break open the door," responded Maryman. The elderly female drew in her head, but almost instantly reappeared aud informed the constable that if he touched that door he'd get his head broken. This made Maryman dance with fury, and he swung the axe aloft prepared to burst the door open. Before he did any damage, however, a hand protruded over the transom and quietly dropped a brick, which took Horatio a clip over the head. By this time a large crowd had congre gated, and their sympathy was altogether with the besieged, whom they encouraged to further reck lessness by shouting, " Look out for him ; here he comes again!" "Go it, old gal; give him some more medicine like that!" Such expressions maddened the constable, and he returned to the charge, this time with a heavy club, with which he pounded vigorously on the door. The door was trembling under the pressure, when the same hand came over the transom holding a large lamp filled with coal-oil. Crash it came with full force just beyond Maryman's nose, and the con tents splashed full in his eyes and over his body, causing him to beat an inglorious retreat. The crowd roared at this last episode, and re newed their taunts of the now almost frenzied bum bailiff. It was more than he could stand, and, underaplea. of seeking reinforcements, he scudded across the Avenue toward Police Headquarters, amidst the gibes of the spectators. He asked Major Brock for a detail of policemen to protect him, but was politely informed that the only thing that the officers could do was to pre serve the peace and could not help him to break open the door. Maryman returned to the scene, and, after ruefully viewing his effects, considered discretion tho better part of valor and departed, leaving the enemy in full possession of the castle. Four Babies' A'nrroir Escape. Fire was discovered in one of the small houses in Jackson Hall alley, tenanted by colored families, yesterday afternoon, by a colored man in the vicinity, who quickly gave the alarm. Con siderable excitement was created among the crowd that gathered by the statement that several children were locked up in the room, from which the smoke was pouring in dense volumes, and several men broke in the door. Upon a low bed, under which a fire was binning briskly, lay four babies, none of them over a year old, and had it not been for their timely rescue they must have smothered to death, for when brought out into the air they were gasping for breath, and two of them were almost lifeless. The fire was extinguished with a trifling loss, without the department going into service. a Franlclin Keller. The annual meeting of the Franklin Mutual Relief Association was held at St. Joseph's Hall last evening, and was largely attended. A large number of applications for membership were received and acted upon. The reports of the officers were read, that of the secretary showing that the association had more than doubled its membership during the last year, and that of the treasurer showing a large surplus of funds on hand, and that the Association Is now on a solid basis, both numerically and financially. The election of officers resulted as follows: President, D. W. Landvoight; vice-president, J. M. Richards; trustees, Messrs. Knockey, Elliott, Wamsley, Lonsdale, Oliver, Radcliff, and Galley.
