Rochester, August 12. The n Dounceuient that St. Julian and Maud S, would both be trotted, the former to beat his own best trotting record of 2.121, sod the latter to beat hers and Sleepy Tom's best pacing reoord of 5.121, was enough to attract a multi tude of spectators to tbo driving park to-day. Ffteen thousand people were present to witness the grand event. At 5 o'clock the California wonder and king of the turf, St. Julian, was driv en out on the track by his past grand stand-by, t)wcn A. Hickook, who is part owner of the great trotter and al ways handles him when on the turf Prolonged applause greeted St. Julian as he was trotted aro und the track to get heated for the greatest effort of his life. He went down past the judges' tand several times before Hickok nodded to the judges to give tho word, Then ho darted around the traok with out a running mate or anything else to urge him, making his first quarter in .33, half a mile, 1.07, third quartor, 1.41, and mile 2.131, the fastest trotting ever done upon the ltochester track. The crowd cheered, and those who were betting that both horses would lower the best previous record now of fered to give their opponents odds at the pools, at tho rate of G0 to $50, It was forty minutes later when Buird, of CiDoinnati, drove out tho beautiful six year old mare, Maud S. Deafening cheers ensued. Baird nodded to the judges, and Maud S. was given a send off. The first time sho came down the stretch, the traok, weather and every thing in her favor no less than St Julian's, she sped away magnificently and the involuntary exclamation of the many thousand witnesses was, "beautiful I" She completed her first quarter in .32. second in 1.05, third in 1.38, and mile in 2.11 an entire second lower than tbe best trotting time on record, and half a second bet ter than tho best pacer ever went. The wildest enthusiasm prevailed- To de scribe it accurately would be utterly impossible. Everybody knew that tho best time on reoord bad been made before the timekeepers had made their announcement or were consulted. Bets now rauged at $51 to $80 on Maud against $50 to $75 on St. Julian, as the best and faster trotter of the two. St. Julian was brought out for his second heat. There was less enthusiasm than before, but he got away in fino shapo He trotted to tbe end of the first quar. ter in 31 1 ; second quarter 1,05 ; third 1 38, and the mile in 2.11, precisely the same time made by the mare Maud S. in her first beat. Tbe cheers of the crowd this time were strangely mingled with expressions of dissatisfaction, for not a single expert timekeeper, oth er than those on the judges stand, made St. Julian's time less than 2.12 but the official score had to stand. Each horse had now earned a special purse of $2,000 offered to each. Mr. Stone, of Cincinnati, refused to let tbe mare be speeded again, and Hickok took the same position. Maud a. was trotted again, but she made her second mile in only 2.20, and excused from the third heat, while St. Julian's third was trotted in the very ordinary time of 2 211' Handsome testimonials were presented to tbe driver of both the king and qacen of the turf, and this terminated the greatest trotting event the world bat ever known. .taarara- Nutmrff grow oa trees which look like pear trees, and are generally over twenty feet high.

"It was merely a 100'ial visit and do more," remarked General Hanoock to tho Herald reporter, when asked to give the particulars of his all-night vis it to Greystooo the country seat of ex Govornor Tilden. "Mr. Tildon Invited me to Groystone soma time ago to spend the night, and I made the visit pursuant to an engagement already made."' It was half past four o'olook yes ter day afternoon when Gen. Hanoook re turned to Governor a Island. lie look ed fresh and had a cordial nod and pleasant smile for everybody; and certainly had nothing in bissppearanoe to indicate a prolonged and wearisome vigil with Gov. Tilden over the tub ject matter or phraseological dross of bis letter of acceptance. Late as the hour was quite a number were waiting to see him, although many having be. como tired bad returned to the city Among the visitors to the Island were Gen. D. M. DuBose, ez-member of Congress from Georgia; Gen, John T. Harris, member of Congress from Vir gioia, and Judge T. Maokuy of South' Carolina. While they were waiting the General's arrival, they talked very freely to the Herald reporter of politi cal matters in their respeotive States. Eaoh gave it as his unqualified opinion that his State would at tho next elec tion give a large majority for Hancook. "Why," said Judge Mackay, "the election of Gen. Hancook is tho most ardent wish of the Southern people will tell an incident that occurred in in my own town recently as an index ot the Southern sentiment. Over 10,- 000 people oolleoted to celebrate the completion of a monument' to Confed erate soldiers killed during tbe war, On the monumental shaft fifty feot high were the names of 2,800 who had sacrificed their lives in tho great frat riuidul strife, most of whom had fallen bcfoie Gen. Hancock's guns at Gettys burg. When the services were over the meeting resolved itself intoa Han cock meeting. You never saw such enthusiasm. . Men, women and child ren cave deafening cheers for Han cock." 1 ) ; ; ' j "There is no less enthusiasm in my State," said Gen. DuBoso. "Tho peo ple there like Hancook, not only be cause he was a fighting man, but be cause when the war was over he was tho first one to extend to them his hand.". . . . ? 1: ."Last Fourth of July celebration was the first one," said Gen. Harris, "that has been celebrated in my state since. 1860, and it was celebrated as much as anything over jubilation of the nomination of Gen, Hancock." A. Ills I'oet (or Yarn) by Illff . i Foot Wallace. Tanner, the fasting doctor, in New York city, received the following let ter from "Big-Foot" Wallace, the noted Texas scout : "In the year 1862 I was in the north west portion of Texas, and while on a scout two companions and myself be came detached from our company. We were attacked at night by the Indians, my two companions killed, and our horses stampeded, 1 escaped in the darkness with only the clothes on my back and my revolver 'and bowiokoile. The next morning while attempting to reach a pool of water in a rocky ra vine, 1 fell and fractured my left leg about midway between ankle and knee, both bones being . broken. At the edge of the water pool was a deposit of tough tenacious wet clay. I bound the broken limb with my shirt torn in strips, and then plastered it over thickly with the clay keeping it as quiet as possible, and frequently renewing the clay poultice- Daring tbe firbt three or four days I suffered much from hunger. I nsed water spiriogly, and kept my belt comfort ably tight about my want. For one day only, I think it was the 9ih or lOlb, I became flighty at inUrvi.a. Tbe twenty first day after tbe accident I re moved the bandages and found to my great joy, the brokea bones were re-n-ni'ed. Worked my way for several hoodred yards, wbea I became ex hausted and sought tbe aheltcr of a shelving rrtk, where I toon dropped into a fi-.fal sleef that I was aroused from by tbe howling of a eoyote wolf, which watlata few yards from soe. I look deliberate aits, bitted awy aad ki'ied Lie : thea I eat hit threat aad tacked his blood astil I had swallow ei a Mt or not. re, when 1 was est, pel'ied to stop ly violent cramp ia say ttomich. After tafferlag at!J a- gonies for an hour or mora the pain gradually subsided, and I fell into a sound and refreshing slumber. This was the first food that had gone into my stomaoh for twenty-one days. An almost insatiable dos'ue seised me to fill my stomaoh with the raw flesh of the wolf. I knew it would be death to do so and partly relieved my hungry criving by chewing tho flesh and only swallowing tho juice. roasted the hams of the wolf, on whioh I subsisted for the next two days, swallowing very littlo of the flesh, but all the juico I could oxtract by con stent ohewing. During tho two days I walked eight miles . and roaohod the fort, where I was reoeivod as one from the dead. I was put in hospital, and under skillful diotary managomont I slowly recovered my : health and strength. My ordinary weight prior to my starvation was about 205 pounds. The seeond day aftor my return to the fort I weighed 1201, My height is C feet 11 inches." Trlnmphnnt completion r the Wonderful Fast ot Mr. Tan. tier. Now York Aug. 7. DrTanneroom- pleted his 40th day at noon to-day. As soon ns tho time was up the crowd oheerod Tanner enthusiastically. A- bout 1,000 persons were in tbe hall and an immense erowd on tho side-walks. He at once drank a glass of milk ' and called for a Georgia watermelon. This be lapped, dug his hand into and ate heartily of. When remonstratod with, hn asked to be loft alone saying- "No, my Lord; I am running this now." When he plaood a glass of milk to his mouth he remarked: "Gontlemon, you don't believe that's good." The signal for the expiration of the fast was announcod by a whistle in the vioinity. When it blew Tanner had a peaoh in his hand, but before ho could put it in his mouth somebody snatched it from him. In response to the plau dits of the assemblage, Tanner, who was sitting upon a chair placod on tho table, raisod his handkorohief over bis head, At a quarter past twelve Tanner was taken from the tablo and left the hall in a coaoh in charge of Dr. Gunn.who took him to his own rosidenoe where he will undergo oaroful treatment. During the morning about 2,000 poo pie visited tbe hall. Just before noon his temperature was found to be 99, pulse 92 and res p:ration 17. . His weight at the end of the fast was 1211 pounds, showing a loss of 3G pounds during the forty days. New York August 7. On leaving the hall Dr Tanner walked, unassisted dawn stairs with a slice of melon in his hand. Ho received an ovation from tbe crowd in the street, shops and windows, and exhibited much gratification at the hearty reception. He ordered the covering of tho carriage thrown back and - joked and talked with the crowd that surrounded the vehicle After two or three dozen persons had grasped his hand, two accompanying physicians had to grasp him by the arm and hold him in his seat to prevent him from tiring him self out, as they feared a serious re action from tho exertions. On reach ing the residence of Dr. Gunn, 'Dr. Tanner at ouce lay down in the front, parlor nd endeavored to sleep Tbe milk and watermelon bad not disagreed with him. Dr. Gunn. him self is reported ill through exertion At 7 30 he was rusting quietly in good oinditioo. . He has eaten of watermel on in small quantities, three or four times without deleterious effect. New York, Augut 7. Dr. Tanner drank one ounce' of Hungarian wine, after which he ale a small slicj ot a melon. At 4 '30 he was eating with great relish a piece of beef steak. He did not swallow the fibre, but only partook of the jaice of the meat. He saw no visitors during the afternoon, and was reported ia excellent spirits- Parlfic Comal Malsnon Ftahlnsr.

Allon, a missionary of the Methodist Charoh South, now at Shanghai, has bobn made a Mandarin by the Chinese govornmont. He ia the first foreigner who has received the distinguished honor. Tho position of Mandarin is a civil office of groat dig nity among the Chinese. Tbe Emperor of China, in whom is vested tbe appoint ing power, never makes a. Mandarin un less ho is profoundly learned. . Dr. Al len is a native of Georgia. He was bora in Coweta county. ' He graduated nt hmory College1 about tbo yoor I860. Immediately after leaving college he wont as missionary to China, where for twenty years ho has done noble and de voted work among that pooplo.. So familiar is bo with the Chinese tonguo that for a number of years ho has edit ed a literary review in that language. About two years ago he visited the Unitod States. Before entering on big missionary labors he joined tho North Georgia Conference, and is still a mem., ber of that body. He is a pure, noble learned man, and Georgia will oertainly hear with pride of the marked distioa- tion which he has won. A Ilrave. Hoy. A ton year-old, whoso'Iegs were re eently cut off by a train of cars at Du buquo, Iowa, was too plucky to make any fuss over the incident. When the little fellow was takon homo his legs hung limp, but he did not complain. Not a tear stood in bis eyes, but tho tender look he gave those who stood by told plainly that he was suffering great agony. After the doctor bad dressed his wound ho called his pa rents, sisters and brothors to his bed side, kissed one and all farewell, snd left a tear upon their cheeks. A sec ond time he called his mother to his side, placed his little arms about her her neck, sad said: "Mother, I am going to die in a -few minutes. Pleaso forgive mo for not minding you." With this .tbo little fellow fell back, sod as the mother said, "Yes, my an gel," and took another look at his faoe, she found him . dead and beyond all pain and suffering. , "light am Well Have Heen.
