Treasure Trove. The old sidewalk in f-ont of Moore & Parker's Theater, after having been ly ing there in an undisturbed condition for over ten years, was taken up yester day, for the purpose of being replaced with one of a mare modern style. The process was witnessed by several urch ins, who were fortunate enough to pick up quite a number of coins urcder the old planks ; la fact one boy picked up a five-dollar piece. At one time the the- ater building was occupied as a gam- : bling saloon, and many a winner, upon ' eaving the building in a half drunken condition, would accidentally drop a piece of money through the chinks of the wooden sidewalk, which he would never think of makins- an attemnt to recover. During the present times, however, if one should drop a quarter of a dollar through a sidewalk that one would have all the planks in the town taken up to recover it. The latter suspected that the contents of the package were valuable, and with the assistance of the Indians he robbed the messenger, leaving him unconscious in the trail. When Pierre regained his senses he started in pursuit of the rob bers. As h had lost his rille he could procure no other food than berries and roots. He kept the trail faithfully, however, and n the second day after the outrage found the half-breed neariy dead in some grass on the margin of a pond. Pierre leaded from him that the Indi ans had knocked him down and stabbed him in the throat. They had jumped at the conclusion that the package con tained bank notes and had platted to rob the robber. A. few yards away were the important papers orders for the season's trade which the Indians in disgust threw away. Pierre was very weak himself, but he lashed the wounded robber to his lack and bore him to the nearest post, thirty-four ! miles distant. The laborious deed of mercy required four days of constant effort, during which time Pierre sup ported his assailant and himself with his recovered gun. Having placed the half-breed among those who could nurse him the generous fellow delivered the papers at the post for which he had started originally. Kverytblns in Abundance fr the Iloli- - amy. .

AH who have seen a French wedding know of the homely and frequently af fectionate manner in which the officiat ing priest delivers a little homily to the intending husband and wife, in which, celibate as he is, he speaks with the authority of deep experience on the du ties of bearing and forbearing, on the happiness and privileges of the married state. But all were astonished at the surpassing plainness of speech of the following priestly address : It is from the bottom of my heart, Joseph, that I congratulate you upon the first step you are taking. It was, indeed, sad to see you wasting your youth in a life of dis gusting drunkenness. However, all is well that ends well, and it pleases me to think you have said good-by forever to that wine-shop. As to you my poor Catherine, thank heaven that you have been able, ugly as you are, to find a husband ; never forget that you ought, by an unchangeable sweetness and de votion without bounds, to try to obtain pardon for your physical imperfec tion, for, I repeat, you are a real blun der of nature. And now my dear chil dren, I join you in matrimony." Nevada Ladies Robbed. New York, December 15.
