An Apparently Vnncconntnule On so of Singular Dlinppcnrniic Fartlally KxpInlnMl -What tho Urothcr of tho PentlSInn Hnjs. New YonK, Nor. 18 Tho body of Robert Fellows, tbo broker, of No. 170 Broadway, and a noplww of Mr. Augustus Scbcll, who disappeared on October 29, was found floating In the North IUrer. Officer Frank Nugent, of tho Steamboat Squad, saw tho body under tho pier of tho Delaware and Lackawanna Hallroad Company at tho foot of Cortland street. Ho seenred n boat nnd had tho body rtmoved to tho Twenty-seventh Precinct Pollco Station. It woa badly decomposed, and had evidently been in tho wutor n long time. Tho body was identified ns that of Mr. Fellows by tho clothing, a valuublo gold watch, two promissory notes and an. acknowledgement of $'M which had been sent by tho deceased to Stamford, Conn., for tho Young Men's Christian Association. There wero also found in tho pockets of tho drowned mnn $19.78 in money, several blank checks on tho Butchers' and Drovers' Bank aud a copy of a newspaper of October JO. Tho watch had stopped at 8. 18. Mr. Blchard O. Fellows, tho well-known lawyer, a brother of tho dsocasod, had tho remains removed to Moonoy's undertaker's shop, from which placa It bo will sunt to Stamford for interment. Tho brother was seen nt his residence. No. VM West Fifty-eight stroot. Ho was naturally greatly affoetcd by his brother's fate. "I can not account for his being found in tho river," ho said. "It is a mystery to mo. Ho left his ofllco nt 4:30 o'clock on thti afternoon of tho 20th of last month. At nbout 0 o'clock hen as seen by boiuo friends nt the corner of Greenwich aud Cortlnndt streets. Tlmt was the last seen of him alive, nnd now his body Is found floating in the river in nearly tho samo loculity. My brother was years of ago, in tho best of health and spirits. Ho owes almost nothing; his business is In good condition; ho had a wifo uud child, whom ho loved, and his muiital relntiom wero very happy. He was u trusteo of the Sunday ncliool in Stamford, and also of tho Young Men's Christian Association thero. "His reputation was excellent, nnd he has had numerous financial trusts rcposod in him, all of which ho has faithfully acquitted. Thero is not, iu my mind, the slighcst reason to behove tlut ho has committed suicide. Theru is nn utter absenco of tho least motive which could drive a sano man to such nn act, and my brother's mental fatuities wero wero perfectly I would as mwii think of his shooting me as of his taking his own life." "To -what, thou, do you nttributo his deuthl" "It muat havo been a molancholy accident. It can not havo boon anything else. You remember the night of the JiUth was ruiny aud stormy. Ho may, perhaps, liave been trying to cross over U) Jersey City, and iu tho dnrkues.4 walked off tho pier. What tould otherwise have brought him in that portion of the city at that hour I can not Imagine His pea inaneut retideiico w as lu Stamford. " "About eight months ago ho bought some proieity there, Including a greenhouse, aud since then devoted his attention mainly to tho raising of grapes und vegetables. Ho only camo to this city on business about three times a week, and then It was his custom to como by the 10 u. iu. Ualn and leave at 4;o0 p. in. As un evidence of his ilomosticity 1 may stuto that for tho jiast year ho nevvr slept awuy from ids homo. Wo wero nntuiully greatly alarmed when ho was missing on tho 30th, and I informed tho pollco. 1 have been to headquarters a bundled times if 1 havo been once, nad wus unablo to find tho slightest cluo as to what had become of win until I was summoned to-day to look on his iltnd body. It is perhaps straugo that it hhould not haveboen found before. Ho must ha o sunk immediately utter having fallen into tho water, and tho body did not riso to tho surface until to-day."

Edward Rickcrt, tho newspapor reporter who tbreoyoam ago shot and killed Sclluiv WlUou, was ai of the charge of murUcr. This was his socond trial. At the first ho was found guilty and subsequently sentenced to be hanged; theu ho cecrired new counsel and they got him a liow trial. RIckoit boarded with Mrs. Wilson, who was a married woman and th mother of several cjdldrcu. Hojticcaiueiftitlto iuthnute with hor, and ono night asked her to go to t ball with him. Sho refused, whereupon ho drew his pistol and Eliot her In tho mouth. She lived long enough to toll how ho hail shot hor, nnd said that sho had never held criminal relations with him, and that iu her belief whisky led him to do tho shooting.

"A light likothey havo In Now York does nobody nny good," rllguor Dt) Nlvo, tho impressario, said to a rvportcr, vlillo discussing tho rivalry of i ho Messrs. Maploson aud Abbey and its probnblo results. "Tho competition the two opera houses can only result in disaster for both managers. Twcl1j years ago Starkosch gave opera around tho country with Nilssou, Campaniui and Del Puonte, all of them wero better than they are turn, at a coat to him of $12,000. It costs Abbey and Maplcson something liko $0,000 or 47,000 a night now. Patti gets $."i,00J und Campaniui, with his cracked voice, $1,000. It would not pay to bring thum hero at those figures. This competition will be a blow to tho provincial cities, as it places opera out of tho reach of their audiences." NAVAL MATTERS. An Interesting Letter from Admlrnl Crosby. Washington, Nov. 18. Rear Admiral Crosley, commanding tho Aslntic Squad-on, reports to tho Navy Department, under dato of October 22, 1883, that everything seoms quiet at Canton, China, nnd foreigners thero now feel comparatively secure.

This was adopted on tho 27th of September, but up to tho dato of Admiral Crosby's lottor, thero had been no demand for any such action. NEW YORK'S DAY. rropiiratloiiM for a II fir New Yonir, Nov. 18.

Tho Lackawanna Company was credited with tho transactions, but tho ofUcials of that road deny having taken any order whatever loss than $35. Inquiry at local offices of other manufacturers also met with positive denials of transactions under $.i0. Four rail mills, and possibly five, It, is assumed will shut down after tho ord'ors on hard are Hilled, which will probably bo the close of tho year, in couseqivenco of the qnuntity to mako a profit on rails at $35. It is stated on good authority, how-over, that several companies can moro tluin cover cost at thut figure, since then docllno orders have beeii taken for 40,000 tons for delivery uoxt year by various Sillls. The C'nnr. Washington, Nov. 18. Judgo Cox, in the Circuit Court, set asido the verdict of 800,000 damngos awarded by tho jury last week in tho caso for false Imprisonment.

Thompson, of the IIouso, for ilamago. Iu tho llrst trial he was awurded $100,000 damages, which verdict was set aside.
