Fond du Lac Special to Milwaukee Sentinel.]
Gen. John McDonald appeared in County
Judge Perkins' court this morning in the
case of the State of Wisconsin against him
self, for an assault with intent to do bodily
harm upon Mr. W. C. Williams, the Milwau
kee lawyer who is retained in the celebrated
divorce suit of McDonald vs. McDonald.
The general waived examination, and by
consent of his own counsel, Col. W. W. D.
Turner, of Eipon, was held to bail to the
circuit court in $ 1,000. Col. C. K. Pier,
vice president of the Fond da Lac Savings
bank, became joint surety with the defend
ant. In the afternoon at 3 o'clock the
general appeared before Police Jus
tice Eastman to answer to a demand for a
peace warrant by Mr. Williams, who in his
complaint stated that he considered his life
in danger. Col. Gilson, district attorney, in
behalf of the State, moved a discontinuance
of the action, stating in open court that Mr.
Williams was able to protect himself. The
motion was granted and Gen. McDonald and
Jere Doobs went to Oshkosh to witness the
walking match. Mrs. La Mothe, the "Sylph",
your correspondent is informed by her at
torney, Col. Turner, of Eipon, has instruct
ed him to bring suit in her name against
every newspaper in Wisconsin, and some
outside of the State which had mentioned
her name in any connection which reflects
on her personal character. I understood
the colonel, who has been here to-day, to
say that he was already drawing up
papers in the cases. Among other news
papers who aim to give the news but who are
to be prosecuted for it, are the Milwaukee
Sentinel, ike Fond du Lac Commonwealth,
the Fond du Lac Journal, and the Bipon
Commonwealth. The colonel informs me
that if all these newspapers which have ever
had anything to say about Mrs. LaMothe
will take it back and swear they never said
it she will discontinue. Otherwise there,will
be millions in it for her if she collects from
$10,000 to $50,000 each from them, graded
according to their financial capacity.
In the divorce suit the colonel stands
aloof as a sort of third party (greenback for
instance), representing Mrs. LaMothe's
greenbacks. But I am assured on personal
authority that if it had not been for the in
termeddling of third parties, not counting
LaMothe as one, Gen. McDonald and his
wife would have never experienced the
trouble which has brought them so unfor
tunately into domestic notoriety, and would
be living together as man and wife to-day.

When the recent excitement in Sierra Nevd

purpose of interesting themsj,'

headquarters with Stone & Donner, lei
bankers on State street in that city, and i.
$5,000,000was put upby the members foroj,*

Union, Mexican and Ophir. Their purchae,
were not confined to these stocks aloue
ever, for they corralled quite a quantity of
collaterals as Gould & Currv, Savasje. Hale A
Norcross, Bullion, etc., with the view that th:
developments in the Sierra Nevada must caus-V
a vigorous appreciation all along the Comstod
line. The syndicate received the best inform

purpose on this coast,the Boston capitalistswer
thoroughly enthused and carried awav by their
first success. They hadn't had such a glorious
opportunity to make money since the good old
times during the war, and they were going
to take advantage of the occasion. They were
advised that some kind of a fight was going
on in the market between two rival combina

little importance upon the' fact, feeling, like
