There Wils a ba^J^i'inpt made at the
Illinois State Penitentiary, at Joliet, to carry ont » mutinous plot to euablo the convicts to escape from that institution, last week. The plot was originally con cocted between a man named Smith und certain outsiders, friends of three convict«, to secure whose release he wits to receive s handsome sum of money. The tirst thing in the programme was for Smith to obtain employment as a guard in the l'enituii tiary, in which he Succeeded a few weeks uifO, and had boen acting as a general guard up to the time of the discovery of the plot. This man was to arrange the manner of escape for tho convicts, one ol which wi s a plan for them to scale tho wall while he was on it as guard. This was attempted a week age last Friday, tlia three convicts whom lie was especially in terested in releasing having sncceedcd in getting upon tho wall; the unfaithful guard firing upon them four times, but being careful not to hit them. 1 wo of the convicts succeeded in getting over the wall, hut another guard, wh» was not in tho secret, fired upon them from another portion of the wall,killing one of the con vict», named Strong, wentenced from St.. Clair county; the otbors were pursued, caught and taken back. These circura «tances aroused the suspicions of Warden Buokm aster and Deputy Warden Simonds, that the guard Smith was playing false, and plans wore accordingly laid to watch and detect him. As a pretended mark of favor, he was promoted to tho position ol night guard in the cell-house, whçre he could have opportunity to commifaicato freely with the prisoners. A convict, who hnd no previous knowledge of the plot, was employed to gain Smith's confidence, and to help "work up" tho affair. Smith bit at tho bait eagerly and at once. An other guard was concealed under the de tect! ve convict's bedstead in the cell, wher« he laid three successive nights overhearine everything that passed between Smith and the convict. Smith, among other things, told tho convict that he was en gaged in maturing two plans by which to raise a general mutiny and stampede. The first was to enable the priBonors to get pos session of tho armory, after telling them where the key was concealed; the officers of the Penitentiary wore then all to be shot, and tho prisoners liberated. Tho other plan was to secure his restoration to his former position us guard on the wall, where he always had eight or ten loaded muakots at his command. Leaving the lower door approaching his towor on his wall unfastened, the convicts wore to rush up, seize the muskets, gag and tie him, (he having the gag and rope all prepared), and thon they wore to protect the escape of all the other convicts by shooting tJio remainder ol tho guard and officers oi the prison. In his private interview wilh the detoctive convict, these he detailed as hi« own plans, and stated the amount if money he was to reçoive lor it. He also furnished tho doUotivo convict with a bot tlo of aquafortis and a saw in the coll, with which ho was to make his way ont and assist tho others. On tho third night, after overhearing these plans and co 11 tensions, and tho mode of proceeding against him haviug been fully matured by the officers of the I'orii tontiary, the concealed guard gave a pro concortod signal from his hiding placo un der the detoctive convict's bod, whereupon Deputy Warden Simonds entered tho coll - house, and, in sight of Smith, unlocked tho cell and brought out the codcealod gnard. Instantly appreciating the cir cumstances of his detection, Smith fell down in a spasm of terror and consterna tion. He was taken to the solitary prison, whore, after the recovory ol his bewildered senses, he immediately made a clean breast ol tho whole matter to the Deputy Wardou, confessing everything as above narrated, with several additional particu lars, indicating that the fellow had planned aud was about executing a plot that would, if he had not boon thus fortunately de tected, have led to one of the most fearful scenes of massacre and horror known in the annals of sanguinary mutinies, em bracing the slaughter of ail the officers and guards of the prison, and lotting loose upon the usually quiet city of Joliet and vicinity an army of botwoen six and seven hundred of the most hardened desperadoes extant." Smith was next day taken before Justice Ben j. Richardson, of Joliet, who, in defanlt of bail, had him committed to the county jail of Will county. jJ3gT Michael Harrington, of New Bed ford, called on an undertaker, engaged a coffin for Iiis wife, who, ho said, had sud denly died, and borrowed of the amiable undertaker a little money for certain nec essary expenses. Tho undertaker went to the house to measure the corpso, and lo '. Mrs. Harrington came to the door, never having dreamed that she was dead. He suddenly remembered that he had lent some money.— Prov. Bulletin. ÖF" The Alexandria Democrat says that riot over three hundred bales of cotton will ha rained in the pariah of Rapides the pres ent year, a s À History of Signboards— Victor Hugo and Gavrochf.—K curioua volume has been a long time in preparation in England. Its title is "The History of Signboards, Ancient and Modern, with anecdotes of Famous Taverns and Remarkable Charac ters." Upwards of four hundred pugos of interesting particulars and anecdotes have already twin printed, and a great many drawings of old signs have been made for the work. Such signboard oddities as the "Bull and Last," "Elephant and f riar," "Kail and Two Calves," with hundreds of othor tavern decorations, will receive, we are assurod, full elucidation. Tho London Review gi ves the following anecdote, which very recently was an item of gossip iu Brussels : "One morning, a few weeks since, an elderly and respectable gentleman might have been seen on the Place do l'Hôtel de Ville gazing with much curiosity at a sign over a tobacconist's. The words which excited hi» surprise wore 'An Petit Gav roche.' Looking first on the sign and then at the nun,l»or of the house, he said lo tho friend who was with him, 'I really don't understand that; it certainly was here!' Without more consideration he entered, and, speaking loan elderly lady, said : 4 I bog pardon, madame, but have you resided in this houso very long !' 'No, monsieur, we have only been here about two yours.' 'May 1 ask wliy yuu took that sign? aud, if I am not too inquisitive, do yon know M. Victor Hugoî' "1 do not; but 1 know little Gavroche, for I have read Les Miserables.' 'Did you like the book?' 'Indeed I did, for I too, belong to the people. I have seen barricades, and I have been in prison for political Opinion » sake.' From incidents in her curcoi" she turned aside to her political opinions, which were ultra lïed Republican. On concluding » long list, of these—for tho subject was a favorite one, and her listeuer was very attentive—the gentleman hold out his hand to her, saying ; 'Madame, al low me to shake hands with you a» a friend. 1 am tho father ot little Gav roche.' It is Victor Hugo. His astonish ment upon seeing his lit.tle hero's name on a sign was doubled by its hanging oil tho house in which he commenced writing Le» Miserables." HTA young lady moving in the up|>cr circle» at Chicago was betrothed at the beginning of the war to a lieutenant in tho army. He was killed in battle, and his body takeu homo aud buried by hi* nearest friend and comrade, who was with him when he fell. To this young man the lady's affections wore very naturally transferred in time, aud she engaged to marry him. When the happy day arrived, and just as the clergyman was about to pronounce thorn man and wife, the lady suddenly fainted, aud being revived, for bid any further procedure, as she said she had seen the spirit of her former lover, and he was opposed to the match. She persisted in her decision, and hasaiuee re tired to a convent.
