alleged, attempted a criminal assault
uponjhe little girl at the Tisrney ho
tel hero, and who was taken off by a
crowd to be punished, as was reported
in fall this morning, has not been
heard from since. lie was taken away
by the crowd on Tuesday night. Rob
inson sustains a good character at
homo and has some influential rela
tives. They are here to-day looking
for him, and it is belioved by many
that, instead of being whipped and lib
erated, that the crowd made awav with
him. Robinson has many friends
throughout tho county, and it is now
surmised will cause groat trouble.
Judge Wm. Campooll, who was shot
here by Gua Smith on Monday, is still
alive. Ilia physicians have despaired
of his recovery, and the rumor is cur
rent to-night that he is dying. Judge

but has lived in Sherman and Bonham.
He came from Beaumont here about
two years ago, and about two months
since married a beautiful and accom

letter says there has been a gradual re
duction in tho forco for several months
until now there aro about 1000 men
loft, and they aro living in camps along
tho lino of tho canal. It is feared
they will not onlv try to tako posses

the revolution which is reported to be
breaking out in tho interior will break
out at the same time. Tho marines and
sailors on the Atlanta and Ossippeo
are being drilled at small arms and

tho programmo is that they shall take
possession of tho lino of the railroad
at tho ontranco of the town of Aspin

Colorado, March G. A young man
going by the name of J. C. Britton,
claiming to bo from Fort Worth,
was arrested hero last night on a
oha'go of representing himself to be a
United States deputy marshal. He
bad been in town several days and told
several parties that ho was here on se
cret business and had trace of a man
ho wanted. He also said thai he was
second lieutenant of the Fort Worth
Feneiblcs and that ho was interested
in a printing company in that city.
When arrested he had no papers to
prove his identity as en officer, and on
trial plead guilty to tbo charge. He
had an examining trial before Mayor
Harness yesterday afternoon and was
sent to El Paso for trial before the
AlbAnv, March 8. Tho prohibi
tion election passed off vory quietly,
although there was intense interest by
both sides. Tho loading business mon
of tho town 'turned 'out and worked
hard all day. Early in the day it ws
seen that tho pros wero sure to win.
The vote cast was not a largo one, but
both tides did all thoy possibly could
do to gain tho victory. The returns
show the pros the victors nearly two to
one. Tint settles the matter for two
years, and for that period at least Al
bany will bo a dry town.

Pat's Prompt Reply.
Echo was u mountain nymph in tho t
old pootic days, but modern realism
lias changed her into an Irishman. At
least tho guests of a Georgia colonel
must havo concluded so. Col. Ogee
clico has a vory rcmarkablo echo on
his placo a low miles from this city; . '

peat wliolo sentences.
Tho gentlemen to whom this asser
tion was mado wore interested, but in

Col. Ogccchco homo tho next after-
noon to test tho wonderful echo, Tho v

At tho Now York assizes. In March,'
1812, a trial came on in which Eev. B. '
Gilbert was plaintiff and Bir Mark
Bykes. baronet defendant. It ap
peared that tbo baronet, at his own ta
blo during a dinner party, in tho
course of a conversation respecting
the hazard to which the life or Bona
parto was exposed, had offered, upon
tho receipt of 100 guineas, to pay 1
guinea a day as long as he (Bonaparte) ,
should remain alive. Mr. Gilbert sud
denly took up the offer;. but, finding
that, tho sense of the company was
against making a serious matter of n
bet proposed at a moment of convivi
ality, he said; "If you will submit,
Bir Mark: to ask it as a favor, you
may bo off." Thia the baronet refused
to do. Tho 100 guineas were sent by
Mr. Gilbert, of which Bir Mark ac
knowledged the receipt and he liad
continued paying the guinea a day or v i
nearly three years. At length be do- '
