Willis Bill has Just been lodged in the county Jail, charged with committing a jewelry robbery on the 3d of July last, on Bowie street. At the dato of, the robbery no clue could be obtained as to the perpetrator, but strong suspicion of Willis Bill's guilt, who lived next door, was entertained by Captain Hughes, and a careful Investigation was constantly be ing made by that officer or Willis Bill's whereabouts. From two colored women living over the San l'edro a decided cluo was gained, they alleging that on tbe mornlnir or the 3d of July Willu Bill came to them and asked them to take care or a uox until next day, which they accordingly did. The culminating point to Willis Bill's guilt was brought about by the woman or the house on Bowie street, with whom tue suspecieu ourgiar lived, she acci dentally letting a box fall off the bureau, thus throwing Its contents to the ground, disclosing a lot or Jewelry, which was Immediately recognized by the woman or the house as being that or her neigh bor's, which had been stolen from her. Detective Hughes was at onco Informed -ami took his man In custody. SAN PEDRO SPRINGS. Ball Given to the New Orleans Quartette Club. Last evening the ladles of the Men delssohn Singing society In conjunction' with the gentlemen of that association and the Beothoven Maennerchor, gave a picnto and dance to the members or the Now Orleans Quartette club, at tbe San l'edro springs. Tho guests highly appreciated the many pleasures that were provided for them by their hosts and enloved themselves Immense!?. In the Intervals of danolng selections were admirably sung by tbe club, the oaden oes of the harmony traveling through the night air and the trees of the springs, rendered the sound of th? oienaeu voices delightful. gainst Cleveland. He relates one or the choicest stories In Senator Vest's budget, with some slight amendment to make It lit for print, In support of his po- Itlon that oven If all that has been said of Cleveland Is true, suoh charges "nev er hurt a Democrat yet." We are far from saying that the charges sgalnst Cleveland are all true, nd we are ready to admit that Col. Frather only reiterates an assertion commonly heard among politicians. In viler shape It Is credited to Van Horn, of Missouri, altepublloan. But Is It true? Colonel l'rather calls on those who are guiltless to cast the first stone. For the honor of manhood we believe earnestly that there are men who are unstained with seduction. For the honor or Amer ica, wo know that In certain sections or this country that offense Is punishable with death, ir not under the written, at least under tho unwritten law. We know that irtlie viotliu or tue crime uas a male relative even five times removed by ties or blood from her, there are com munities In this country where, II he does not wash out tbe shame of his fam ily In the blood of the miscreant who de- graueu it 10 sntisiy urn vucbl pnnmuiia, be Is thenceforth a social pariah, de spised by all as a coward and a nlderlng. But. Colonel leather's scriptural Illus tration Is not apropos. The woman taken In a crime universally regarded as being less than that ot seduction, went unstoned of the Pharisees It Is true, but she was not a candidate for any olllce, either at that time or subsequently, so rar as tne recoru snows. Even publicans and sinners sometimes deprecate In their rulers what they themselves practice In their private lives. To do so Is no sure test of I'barl seeism. We must go on record ns differing from Colonel l'rather ln-thls question of fact, for we are glad to say that he only states It as a question oi lact. Ilml tip inlil that "this sort of thine ought not to hurt a Democrat" he would nave outraged uecenoy to u lar greater extent than In simply saying as he did : "This sort of thing never hurt a Demo crat." His mistake Is therefore not a criminal one, and It does not to any extent make mm an accomplice in or ucienucr ot im morality. But we surely believe that " this sort of thing" will hurt a Democrat Just as much as It would a Republican, or any one else regardless or party affiliations. We believe that there are many men In this country who, though In their youth they would not have left their sleeves in the bands or Potlphar's wife, their manhood have adopted other views; who with daugh ters growing up around them In loveli ness and purity look upon the profes sional rake much as tbey look upon a mad dog. The subject Is not a pleasant one, and It Is one which generally by common consent Is left undiscussed. But such utterances as those attributed to Colonel l'rather force a discussion of It. If Governor Cleveland Is guilty as charged, we tell Colonel l'rather that "that sort of thing will hurt a Dem ocrat." It Is hurting him now to the extent that nn Influential newspaper, tho Cath ollo Universe, says In its last Issue: "The imperative conditions must be understood and consumated: Cleve land's withdrawal from tbe ticket or his vindication before the country." We do not hold Governor Cleveland guilty on ex parte statements. But the prosecution has been heard: It has made out a case, and If he Is silent there is but one hypothesis tenable. LIEUT. GREELY. Incidents In the Early Life of the Arctic Hero "Civilization has done much for man, and It Is not now a question of physical endurance, but ot mental endurance In attempting such a task as a Journey to the Arctlo regions." These were the words of Lieut. Greely to nnear relative just before he started on his momentous sail, uttered In response to the question whether he, thin and fragile, thought he could endure the privation and toil or an Arctlo search. On thlstheoryhls whole plan has been carried out, and It would seem as though the results Justify his belief. Pluck and grit have availed with him where strength and health failed with others. Furthermore, all the Americans survived the two Esqui maux, acclimated though the latter were to the stern northern weather. Lieut. Greely Is by no means a man of Imposing appearance. He Is, Indeed, directly the opposite. Tall, reaching a height of nill six feet, with narrow chest, thin, delicate hands, and feet al most small enough for a lady, complex ion light, even to paleness, although partially ooncealed by a heavy brown English beard, thin, gaunt cheeks, bluo eyes, shaded by glasses his whole fig ure presents the appearance of a life long student rather than a hardy soldier and explorer. And yet. beneath all Is "You will have to get all you can about Lieutenant Greely from his friends," laughingly declared one of those who are proud to count themselres among the number, In conversing with the writer, "for he will never say any thing about himself. He Is the most re ticent, unassuming man that ever lived. Why, wo ourselves can get him to say but little about what he has done." Then the attributes of the man wero deKcrlbed, now by one friend, now by another, who happened to be present. They told of his true Democracy, and belief In Intelligence and education as the foundation ror whatever aristocracy must exist, or his fondness and ever lingering remembrance for old friends; of his studious habits, his devotion to the works of Whlttler, Shakspearr, and other masters of literature: his loving kindness for his mother, his snaring with her even now the salary which he earns; his Indulgence toward her; his strength oi minu auu win. " Let me tell you an Instance or his de termination," said one. " You must know, first, that Lieutenant Greely and I.uclati, his nephew, In spite of the dis parity of years, were great boon com panions. When tho Lieutenant visited home he and Luclan were alwavs room ing together liko boys, lumping fences, and playing tricks with one another. One of their feats was to have a wrest ling match In the house, and then woe betide every article of furnlturo that came In their way, for each was deter mined to throw the other, and each was of strong will. Adolphus always won until the last match. Then he bad been at work In Washington rorsome time In doors, and Luclan had meanwhile grown to be a strong, sturdy youth. They cleared the kitchen and went at It rough and tumble. Such a tearing around as there was; It was terrific; we really thought one or them would be killed by some accident. At last Luclan downed his uncle, and for the first time the Lieu tenant had to give up. But when he left the room wo thought he was almost deathly sick, so fearfully had tho strug gle worked upon him, and Luclan, too, was nearly prostrated. They had wrestled entirely on their will power, and the consequent exhaustion was worse than the physical exhaustion." "An Illustrative Incident I will tell you," added Mr. John A. Greely, brother of the Lieutenant, "When Adol phus was a boy at school tho ball-was knocked over the fence Into another yard. He went after the ball and cleared tho fence, but In so doing fell and broke his arm. Yet, In spite of that, ho got the ball, and when Lis playmates could not batter out a board In tho fence ror to return through tlie opening, he rushed forward, gave the board a heavy kick, and forced an opening through. Then, after having brought back the ball, bo went down town and had his arm fixed, returning that afternoon to school, anil continuing to attend regularly." Lieutenant Greely was always meth Idlcal In his manner of life. He held cer tain theories In regard to eating and sleeping, and according to those theo ries lie abided, and. furthermore, tried to make everyone else abide. Two meals wo meals were for him very Wlit ones. Ills adherence to settled method was, wnnoui uouoi, oi ine greatest pos sible advantage to him In hit Arctlo research, lor years he has held the Idea of making that co loration. When tho Bennett ex pedition was prepared Lieutenant Greely made ready to go, procuring a pedal outfit at n cost of $1,000, but Indlnir he would have to resign his com mission and go as a private citizen, he ueciueu to wait, it is scarcely proua ble he will ever undertake another Jour ney north. Just before leaving In 1831, he said to n near friend: "I will give wo years and n half of my life to the cause, and then leave It for someone else." But Lieutenant Greely will not retire from active life, resting on his laurels, lie is not that kind of a man. Alwavs active and anxious to be dome something, he will return to active ser vice. Ills sick leave will be sucnt with his relatives In Newburyport, and prob- auiy a portion oi it ni luo irnwioru house In tho White mountains, where Mr. Barron, n friend of the family and proprietor or the hotel, has Invited him to visit. Newburyport Cor. Boston tbe strong, powerful wlil which never dows now n upuer opposition or despair, and the strict determination of adher ence to method and discipline. There Is the mental endurance which holds sway over tbe physical. Few people In Newburyport, tho na tive town of Lieutenant Greely, will re member him when ther first sea him Always modest and retiring, he never forced his presence upon anyone, but ratucr BuranK irom wnat woui'i do gen erally regarded as pleasant notoriety Ills, uniform was seldom displayed at publlo festivals. But to his friends, who to him are always bis friends through thick and thin, he la well known anil well loved, and no one delights more tiian iney in praising tne Arctic hero, WENT TO A CAMP MEETING. A Heavy Blow With n Revolver, Fracturing the Skull. Yesterday morning a man named Gates, attended a camp meeting, some distance from the city. During the time Gates was there be got Into a quar rel with his brother-in-law, and tbe two commenced fighting, Gates having a terrlllo blow given him on the forehead with the butt end or tho brother-in-law fractured Gates' skull.

A Surprised Youth. "Do you keep Late Hours, young man?" asked an aged lady, entering inuslo store and addressing one of the clerks.

"My daughter asked me to call In here anu asic you," conunueu.me lauy, turn agio go. "Vour daughter wanted to know?1 exclaimed the voting man with nointed shoes, turning as red as a fashionable parasol. "Yes: my daughter heard someone sing It the other evening, and she wanted to get It." It wasn't till then that the young man realized that Late Hours was the name or a recently published song.

CARRIER PIGEONS. How They nre Trained lor Long- Distance Flying. " The genuine carrier pigeon," said Mr. Joseph M. Wade a few days ago, can fly but very little. It Is a bird or ornament and high price. I have known $300 being paid for a pair of them In hlladelphla. They have very long beaks and are of several colors, black, dun, white, blue-barred (like the com mon mongrel pigeon). They all have a large bunch of wartlng on the beak, and the larger the bunch, If of proper shape, tho more valuable the bird. In England unscrupulous bird fanolers sometimes cut this bunch and shove under It a tece of cork no as to make It annear arger anu oi tue sianuaru lorm. ii is done so nicely thatone bastolnspect I lie bird very closely to detect the fraud. They fly so badly and are so valuable mat uiey are usuauy conuneu io u room or cote." "What are, In reality, such as are commonly caueu carriers r- "inev are Homing iYntweros. ij. o. Hubbell. of Philadelphia, was the first one to bring stock ot-tbat kind Into this country, i lie poorest one ue nau brought over nau uown live uunureu miics in ui rect flight. Tbev were bought at Ant werp by John Bailey, of London, who bad all his expenses paid, and Instruc tions not to buy any birds that had not flown live hundred miles. Mr. Hubbell would not sou any or his stock, but pre. sented me with a few birds, thi descend ants of which 1 have distributed In dif ferent parts of the country. 1 sent six pairs to San Francisco, soon after tho completion of the Union I'aclllo railroad, and they were tho first birds of tho kind that ever went to California. I arranged the box in which they were Bent myself. It contained n hopper lined wun grain, so arranged that the grain was led to mem grauuauy. in lueir water ianK was a large sponge to prevent tbe water irom slopping over, inu irom tins sponge tbe birds drew their dally sunnlv. The box was not opened on the trip, which lasted nearly two weeks, but tbe birds rescued san irancisco in exceuent con dltlou. The true tvne of the homing Ant werp is like ine common diuo pigeon with black-barred wings. There Is a slight difference In the beaks, but to the casual observer they are alike. Some are dun-colored, but whatevercolor they are breu, ine disck oars on me wings re main. Thev are sometimes bred Into i silver uun color, wnicu is very iireuy, In Etfrope they have been known to fly over 700 miles without stopping. In Belgium homing exoltes as much Interest as horse-racing does In this country. The Mayor of a town, and all the oromlnent citizens will perhaps participate in the sport, and hundreds or birds will be entered In the race. Some or the poorer birds nev er reach home. They are shot, or killed by birds ot prey, or perhaps, stopping on some roof to rest, are killed by cats. The winning bird Is sometimes treated to quite an ovation Is carried through the streets with bands otmuslo, etc." "now are tneytraineu tonysucuiong distances?" Very gradually, by easy stages. Ed.

Louis Brltton, a colored man, sends the Light the following : " Some think It a hardship to work for their bread, al though for our good It was meant, but those who don't work have no right to be fed, and the Idle are never content. Honest employment brings pleasure and gain, and makes us our troubles forgot, for those who work hard have no time to complain, and It Is better to labor than fret. If we had riches they could not produre a happy and peaceable mind. Rich people have troubles as well as the poor, although of a different kind.
