"Ye.-:; I'm going to ?top my plngue tQkC-lt nonsense and turn over a new leaf to-morrow." said a seedy-looking citizen to his chum as a Vlrglnian-Pl lot representative passed them on his rounds yesterday. The book in which one of its leaves wan to be turned wna soiled ami looked hard; rough contact with the world'? lower strata told plainly on this subject of good resolves, but there was such a seeming earnest? ness In lib! manner as his dark, blue cyo.s flashed out determination to turn from a course that was apparently any? thing but commendable, and which lie evidently felt was carrying him swiftly out into the de. p. treacherous waters of destruction physically, mentally, so? cially, spiritually, that ye scribe's sym? pathy w.nt cm in nil Its fullness to the poor, luckless, seemingly lorn fel? low battling va Innlly ngntnst habits that were placing in Jeopardy that without which men "are as gilded team or painted clay." Many leaves" in the book of life will doubll-s? be turned to-day. Out of the shadow under which they have been groping-, staggering Into (ho pure sun? light of a better moral atmosphere, will come multitudes of heretofore reckless roystercrs whom reflection?that reflec? tion which possesses all as the blissful splendor of the natal day of heaven's born still encircles us?will cause to en? ter Into a self-exntninatlon that calls a hali In. If it does not stay, the courses of evil In their natures. Yes: new leaves will bo turned In the life-hook of many iliis Ins! lay of a year that has been froucht with disaster to reputa? tions which have been and should ever be the pures! I reo sii re mortal time* af? ford. They feel doubtless with horror that It is receding, ami to catch nnd keen and on robe it to the abandoned nltlrc which once clot hod their bi ings will be their future aim. A DISTRESSING ACCIDENT. Yesterday afternoon Mr. vv. p. Dtxon, fireman at Phillips & Mahoncy's mill, was at work on a. moulding machine, attempting t" chnnge the gauge while the machine was running, lo doing so his left hhrjid ???>?'< cnught in the machin? ery, cutting it off nt the ivrh : ? had presence of mind to grab the hand ami hold'it tie-In around Ilm wrlsl i . pre? vent the How of blood. Dr. Robertson was sent for ami dressed tie'- wophd, after which 'Mr. Dixon was s<>n| to his home., in South Portsmouth.

Tho purchase of the p.operty nt the foot of Queen street, now owned by Messrs. E. C. Brooks and Charles H. Nash, has not been fully completed, but the met.on of the Jouu Perry Commit? tee at Its lust meeting in agree ng id re ommend to th> ie p ctive bod s rep? resented the purchase i.f Mr. Nnsh's pr perty; paying therefor Hie sum of J10 000, Is a long ways toward the con sunima ion to be wished, as Mr. Brooks has named a price, and it is supposed that he is ready to sell.

Nash and Brooks. Then the ferry entrance will be on High st e t, and after the transfers aie made the end of High street will be greatly improved and travel ihn over the ferry will not only Increase, but can be done more easily and with a great detal more pleasure and conven? ience. A VERY HAPPY OCCASION. One of the happiest occurrences of the season took place at No. 30 Court street Friday night last, when Mrs. Ellis A. Butt gave, in honor of her guest, Miss Grace L. Matthews, of 320 E. North avenue, Baltimore, Md., a progressive euchre party. It was decidedly one of the most enjoyable social gatherings Hie winter has thus far seen. Three prizes w. re awarded?one to the most export player among the gentlemen, an? other to the lady exhibiting the great? est skill in the game, and the third?the '"booby" prize to the leapt adroit of the party; in other words, to the one who couldn't play at all. Around the table wit humor and merriment abounded, rendering the evening particularly pleasant to all who had the pleasure "f assembling around the hospitable board. Among those present were Mesdamcs R. J. Dodd and Wm. P. Ives, .Misses Sallle Thompson, Emma Williams, Rachel Ivos, Mary Moore. Sadie Butt, Fannie Howlotl and Jane Davis, and Messrs.

The following subjects were handled | In an excellent manner by the gentle-I men whose names appear herein: 1st. "State or Churches"?Five minute talks by representatives. 2d.

Deputy Sheriff Abbott and Oflieor Jesse Hoofnngle have returned from their North Carolina tri:> without the object of their vis:'.?Walter Cotton, the escaped murderer of Mr. Char'OS Wyatt. Rumors are numerous, but when ua ied no reliable information is secured. Yet no plausible clue Is treated lightly, but on the contrary everything which h:'S the least color or npparent truthful? ness is duly considered and acted upon. This whole section, it seems, Is thoroughly alive to the necessity of ap? prehending this dangerous criminal, and Sheriff Smith's activity in thfl search Is receiving the hearty co-opera? tion of the 'whole police department of this city. It hardly seems possible that Cotton can safely elude the vigilance of the officers many days longer. Deputy Abbott and Officers Hoofnngle did not return from Weldon, however, as bare of knowledge as when they went- They are not talking about what they did learn, but sufficient Inference ca nbe drawn from their reticence and their cheerfulness to lead one to be? lieve that the 12th of January will find Mr. Cotton on the scaffold in Ports? mouth to exnlate the awful crime of I which ho was convicted.
