Emma McNulty, the negro woman who was accidentally shot while scuttling for the possession of a revolver on Sun day morning, was still alive last, night. Her condition is reported unchanged, bat there is no hope for her recovery. We learn that the work of grading the public road between Palatka and Sauble will be begun on Monday next. A large force of men will turn out and tlie work will be pushed to completion as rapidly as possible. The members of the Palatka Club and invited friends spent a few hours very pleasantly at the club rooms at the Mon day evening reception. The club will give these public receptions every Mon day evening during the summer, which will be thoroughly enjoyed by all their friends. The St Augustine Press has this to say of Prof. James, who recently taught a dancing school in Palatka: "Prof. James, who came here a short time ago with a great flourish of trumpets to open a fashionable dancing school, has skipped for parts unknown after fleecing several parties." One of the store rooms in the Baum building, on Lemon street, is being fitted up in handsome style for Mr. R. J. Riles, who will move his jewelry store to that place on June 1. When he gets every thing in shipshape in his new stand he will have one of the handsomest and most complete stores of the kind in the State, and he will carry a large stock at all times. The North End Hose and Reel Com pany is the name of a new fire company organized by the colored men of New- town. There are twenty-six members of the company, and when once in working order, we have no doubt but they will prove very efficient workers in time of need. Last night the City Council ad mitted the new company into the tire department, and later on it will l fur nished with all the needed apiaratiw. CITT COCJit'IL MEETING. Ta City tm b Sued by Phillip ewporl A New Fir Com pan j. At the meeting of the City Council at the Council Chamber lawt night. Presi dent D. A. Boyd, Aldermen W. II. Par er, Wm. F. Forward and T. N. Wilson and Clerk Cook Carleton were present. The bill of B. L. Lilienthal. for rent of council chamber for two months, amounting to $10, was referred to Finance Committee. The Finance Committee reported the report of Treasurer W. E. Ranson cor rect, and his bill for commissions, amounting to $44.34, was ordered paid. The bill of E. S. Neck, for Collector's commissions, amounting to $". 6, was reported correct and ordered paid. - In a communication to the President of the Board, Mayor Teasdate notified the Council that he had accepted service on a summons in the case of Phillip New port vs. the City of Palatka. Newport nee the city for $500 for work done on the streets several years ago. The mat ter was laid over until the next meeting. The Mayor reported that the fines and jail fees collected during the month of April amounted to $45.50, which sum bad been paid into the city treasury. The attorney of the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Railway wrote a letter of inquiry to the Mayor in regard to a warrant held by that company against the city, which the treasurer had refused to pay. The Mayor referred the matter to the Council, and the Council in turn referred the whole matter to the Clerk, with instructions to investigate and report to the Council. J. S. LaRoache and J. II. Purcell pre sented a petition asking that the North End Ileae and Reel company, Composed of colored men of Newtown, be supplied with a reel, cart and hose, and that it be admitted to the fire department of the city. The report was received and or dered filed. The matter of supplying aparatus was laid over subiect to call. The company was given permission to hold its meetings in the old council chamber. The board then adjourned to meet at 7:30 o'clock next Tuesday even ing. Werklag-Peeple are often too ill to labor, but they havn't time to take medicine and lay off.

A BIRTHDAT PARTY. Th Kids" Visit Jad Tbeaaswoa, sad Have a Very EaJayaM) lias. Last Monday was the birthday of Judge Wm. Thompson, and his friends "The Kids" determined to celebrate the event in a style befitting the occasion. Quite a number of young people, in wagons and buggies, drove out to the Judge's residence on the Heights, and what was done there is best told by "Vox" who was present and thoroughly en joyed the pleasure afforded by the visit of the young people. "Vox" says : The F. P. Ks. of Palatka invaded the Heights ; they persuaded some lambs to go with them. They sang "Over the Hills and far Away," and a jolly set were they, as in crowded, overflowing band wagon, they hied their way to Pine hurst. From all appearances some body's strawberry patch must have been depleted, and with ruby lips the lambs enjoyed the frozen milk as if it was their natural food. As the icy edible melted from the warmth bubbling up from glowing hearts, and the sweet flavor from berries and cream lubricated their tongues, the lambs cried ina-a and the kids responded pa-a. As The News oft times expresses it, "tliey had a very en: joyabletiine." Occasionally a kid would gymnastic, elevate his body and threaten with his head, and the lambs would skip aside fearing no evil, for small horns were there and no beard was seen. The kid is an animal that has not attained unto a beard, though he anxiously hopes by gentle persuasion to evolve from a downy chin a hirsute appendage. The lamb sympathizes and simply cries bah ! What brought these joyous young ones to make a raid upon the Heights ? tbey came to honor the birthday of their hofct, and although he had seen seventy three birthdays, they, innocent, thoughtless youth, wished he might have many more when he was tottering under the weight of so many years. Well, if birthdays always bring such de lightful scenes and pleasant surround ings he would not care if he could rival Methuselah in length of years. Words fail to tell of the wondrous loveliness of the lambs, nor would one particularize, as well try to designate one by one the flowers in a garden where all were beau tiful, fragrant and exquisitely charming I shall only mention tliat among the gay and bright ones there were two Ruths, who came to the gladdening no more and with no other intent. One tall and graceful, the other petite but piquant; they both were young maidens fair not widows and Boaz had a penchant for widows and his heart was not touched. In fact his heart is in the war ami yellow leaf of life and he fears the contrast and incongruity of fair fresh flowers upon a withering stalk. He sympathized more congenially with the sadness of widows weeds. There were two Ducks there who quacked and quacked to show they were "no chickens." Lula must not lie passed unnoticed. She dispensed cream and berries and gladdening smiles and rejuvenating words. A princess she is budding into a queen. Lula, Lula, thou art loo.too for any thing except to make glad the heart of some man. Be sure you are right, then comfort, then bless. The time of parting came and with many well wishes for the host the young and bouyant hearts departed with cheering shouts and mirthful songs. THE VEGETABLE MARKET. What thr Is and What Has to Be Paid for It. The jxiinstaking and careful house keeper can get up a vegetable dinner any day in the week at this season of the year in Florida, and its excellence and variety will tempt the appetite of all hungry humanity. The Palatka market is supplied with nearly everything one would want, and while the prices at which they are sold may seem high the quality of the vegetables, it must be re membered, is first-class, and they are fresh from the gardens and truck farms. Following is a partial list of the vegeta bles noticed in the markets yesterday, and the prices at which they are sold: Cabbages are abundant and sell readily at three cents per pound. Turnips are also plentif ul and are re tailed at ten cents per bunch. Snap Wans and butter beans are very nice and sell for ten cents per quart. Asparagus is selling for twenty-five cents per pound. S plashes are plentiful, and very choice, selling at four cents per pound. New Irish potatoes are on sale at nearly every grocery store, and sell for the remarkably good price of fifty cents per peck. Old potatoes retail at thirty five ceuts per peck. The sweet potatoes are large and very nice, Belling at twenty cents er peck. New Bermuda onions sell for ten cents per quart or bunch. Bfts, while very plentiful, sell for ten cents per bunch. Radishes are not so plentiful as the other vegetables, but sell three bunches for ten cents. Cucumbers are not being eaten to any great extent, and they retail for tlxirty cents per dozen. Tomatoes are very scarce, and the supply is not near equal to the demand. They retail at ten cents per quart. Strawberries are in poor demand, and are daily hawked about the streets at ten cents per quart, Eggs, while not strictly vegetable, are plentiful, and retail at fifteen cents per dozen. What more would a good housewife want to select a good dinner from. PERSONALS. Mrs. E. E. Cleveland, of Jacksonville, is in the city for a few days, the guest of her son, Mr. II. E. Cleveland.

While the buying was not specially heavy there was no pressure to sell whatever, and the bullish sentiment made further progress, though the advances made in a few cases are for no more than fractional amounts. The grangers were special features, and more especially those which are now paying dividends, and their movements gave character to tlie entire mar ket. The remainder of the list were generally firm, though a few specialties made marked advances, while coal stocks and Jersey Central were heavy to weak upon a dull outlook for the coal trade. The Gould stocks were expect ed to rise to-day. but Missouri Pacific only re sponded, while the others remained dull and featureless. Heading was rather heavy on the proximity of the assessment, but it was more active than for the last few days. The market was rather heavy at the opop ing, but became strong immediately under the lead of the grangers. litisine was mod erately active, but after the advance of the first hHjr, while the tHie of the market soil remained firm, the rhiuiires in quotations were for insignificant fractions only until the after noon, when Jersey Central developed decided weakness, and the general market showed a drooing tendency, accompanssd by an in crease iu the amount of bUHiness. Consolidated Gas was a niaraed exception, the remainder of the list lieing Mrticulariy strong. There was no further change in the temper of the mar ket, but the cltise was steaoy at the figures quoted. Transactions for the day aggregated .lltf.H J shares. The clising prices show irregu lar changes, although the advances are the more numerous and of the more importance. Cotton. Nrw Tobk May 17. Green Co.s report on cottoh futures says : A light movement, mostly local, has agaiu characterised the mar ket for contract, and there did not apear to be any special feature to the trading during the greater jiortion of the day.

Chicago, May 17. Wheat started in this morning with a jiimptosuu. for June, and sold immetiiately to SStiKitrtH-c. This spurt lasted for alNiut 10 minutes, when it dropiied back to 9sffr s-4C, but was active and irregular. The traili.'ig was very general at the start, and the clitue brokers ilid very little. As the session advanced trailing iiecamc light, though, con sidering the amount of iiusine, prices moved abound with considerable alacrity. Their lim iji were between K7, wTfc and 0c for June, and it was found impossible to move ttieiu either above or below these figures until a short time before .he close id' the session, though tnth extremes were touched several .imcs. It was eviih-iit that the buying opera tions of the clique were not large, and toward tUe close ibe crowd got a little liold. They had been offering June wheat at various times all the morning at SS'c without takers. At l-':.) o'clock a tew of them, tired of offering it at that price, and finally offered it at 8SV- The market reacted toward sstc again, and they became frightened, and immediately tried to buy back the stuff they had just sold. The market again HTidVned up and closed at S7c for June and s.Vw for July. July com opened stronger at 41c, but broke to 41(hC when wheat ilcclined. It afterward developed into quite an uninteresting deal, anal ranged lietween 41 and 41 Sc for July, clos ing at the latter figure. July rilis opened firm and higher at $7.42.

Boston, May 14. There diet! in Bos ton to-day a man to whom belongs more justly than to any one else, the honora ble title of the l ather of Cheap Postage in America. This was the veteran Ly sander Spooner. who passed away at his home, on Myrtle street, at the age of 7U. In 1844, when the sending of an ordi nary 1-tter any distance was a serious tax Mr. tS)ooiier began an enterprise which was almost immediate, and proved lasting in its results, lie believed, while d ?nyiug the right of leagues to monopo lize the carrying of mails, that the bus iness could bo done more cheaply at a profit. To prove his belief and test the power of leagues, he established a pri vate mail from Boston to New York, af terward extending it to Philadelphia and Baltimore, carrying letters at the uni "orin rate of 5 cents. The business grew rapidly, but the Government officials soon overwhelmed him with prosecu tions. Every letter he carried could lie made the basis of a suit. He tried to get the attorneys of the department to let the question go to the last tribunal on one test case, waiving proceedings on the others for the time being, but this did not suit their purpose, which was to crush him with tlie weight of legal ex penses and 1 hus sooner drive him from the field. This they succeeded in doing in the course of six or eight months. He had not the means to defend the nu merous cases piled up against hiiu, and was compelled to surrender. Others, following his example, had established private mails, and they too were forced to retire. But the moral victory was his. lie had demonstrated that a low rate of postage would support the de partment, something of which the peo ple but for his action at that time might not have lieen convinced for manv years afterwatd. So well had he done his work that in the next year Congress made the first reduction in postage rates, followed in K1 and in other sulwequent yvars with still further reductions. A Hint for Palatka. Kerr City Advertiser. The appearance of our town could be much improved by some work in orna mental horticulture. Many of the yards about the fine residences of our town, are very tastily and symetrically ar ranged, and could be made more beauti ful by the planting of ornamental grasses. A nice green lawn, cut up with drives, walks and flower beds, with nu merous ornamental shade trees, gives a place a refreshing and attractive ap pearance whic'i the finest architecture and most expert workmanship, on the house, cannot give. Nearly every house that has been put up in Kerr City has been an attraction and a credit to the place, and if as much pains and skill was used in fixing up the grounds, no town in Florida would excel it in beauty. We are glad to see thai some work has been done in this direction, but the work has only begun. Time used in this manner will never be lost. A Bareaet la Want. Loodoo World. I am asked to state this very painful case. A baronet, now elderly, who served with distinction throughout the whole of the Indian mutLiy, and whose property was lost through the gross mis management of his trusted agent, is now, with his wife, reduced to a dire state of poverty. He is incapacitated by illness from doing much to help himself, and their entire income is SOa. a week, half of which is paid for lodgings. I have the very best authority for stating that this is a real case of urgent distress, and I should be happy to take care of any contributions that may be forwarded to me for its relief.
