W. B. Kilbourn, the present deputy
collector resigned a few days ago to
take effect on the first of February,
and Mr. Slemp was appointed to take
his place. Mr. Kilbourn resigned to
accept a position with a prominent
Baltimore shoe house and will go on
the road after the 1st of next month.
He has boen under contract with
these people since the 18th of last

deputy collector over four years and
two years and eleven mouthe of that

Mr. Slemp is well known to many
of the readers of the I'ost, and is a

appointment?from thc republican
ranks?could not have been made,

Fifth street near the sliosbouie BB 1 in
what now is a populous district. At a
distance of two feet they struck a larpe
deposit of human bouts, 'the skele?
tons were packed close together, as if
buried in one larpe grave. Dark stall ->
and shapes in the earth show where cof?
fins had once existed.
About 200 skeletons were unearthed
In a trench seven feet wide. No digging
was done ou either side and the extent
of the burial place is not known. An
old citizen sugpests that the rt mains
are those of victims of a cholera epi?
demic in 1840, when the locality where
they are buried was waste lind. The
street grade where tbe bodies were
found has been lowered several feet in
late years. No soldiers were buried

preparing to leave Weit Knd for tbe

felt s severe shock over her heart, and
looking to tbe sidewalk, found a rifle
bullet which seemed to have glanced off
her body. Fearful lest she might have
sustained a wound, Mr*. Phillips vis?
ited a doctor'a office, where, after an
examination, she waa assured that she
was unhurt, but that if tbe rteel corset
stay bad not deflected the bullet it
would have penetrated ber heart. Jin.
Phillip! ii* ? young man standing
