It is reported that a plot to assassinate President Arthur has' been discovered, but so far the report lacks confirmation. The rumor that a plot to assassinate President Arthur had been discovered arose from a sworn statement filed in the police department by a man named Bay ley, an attache of the army, medical museum of the surgeon general's depart ment, to the effect that while lying in bed at his room in house No. 461 Mis souri avenue on Monday uight.he heard two men.standlng In front of the house, plot the assassination of President Ar thur. One asked the other if he would swear to do it, and the other answered that he would kill him within a month. Mr. Bayley says he saw the men as they walked oft" and can fully recognize them. No arrests have been made. A Stormy Wedding. The Loves and Stills, conspicu ous in the IndianTerritory, have long been divided by a deadly feud. Lately a Love and a Still became matrimonially engaged, and it was agreed on all hands that the wedding should be the occasion of making a lasting peace. The gather ing was large, and at first, greatly given to smiles, kindly words, and hand-shaking ; but It was soon observed that near ly every male guest carried a pistol, and before night weapons came into general use. Two men were killed and several wounded. Tho Now President,. f 1 V mm Chester A. Arthur, who now be comes President of the United States, was born In Fairfield, Franklin county, Vermont, October 5, 1830. He was par tially educated by his father but pre pared for entering college In the public schools of Schenectady. He graduated from Union College In 1848 and immedi ately began the Btudy of law, and was admitted to the bar of New York city in 1832. Like his lameuled predecessor, General Arthur was poorly off In this world's goods, and paid his expenses by teaching. Soon after being called to the bar he married Miss Herndon, daughter of Commander Herndon, who went down in the Ill-fated Central America in 183". Mrs. Arthur died in 1879, leav ing two children, a boy of 14 and a girl of 8. General Arthur's record as an at torney is quite creditable. During the war he was Quartermaster General of the State of New York. He was ap pointed Collector of the Port of New York In 1871 by President Grant and removed by President Hayes In 1878 for refusing to observe the civil service reg ulations adopted by Mr. Hayes.

The proposed guarding of the vault with a detail of militia for some time will avoid all pos sible danger of the body being stolen until the casket is finally placed in the ground. An iron cage is being construct ed for the reception of the casket. The cage will rest on a cemented stone foun dation, surrounded by heavy masonry, which will be part of the foundation for the monument. The fund for the mon ument is growing rapidly, and subscrip tions are solicited of one dollar or less, which will be registered. Gulteau'8 Lawyers. Washington September 20. District Attorney Corkhill to-day called at the jail, and being admitted to Guiteau's cell informed him that the grand jury would be in session next week and that his case would then be called up, and that an indictment would probably fol low. Colonel Corkhill offered to tele graph to any counsel Gulteau might desire, intimating that it was the lnten tention to give him an early trial. The oiler was accepted, and later in the day Colonel Corkhill sent a telegram for the prisoner to Guiteau's brother-in-law, George M. Scoville.of Chicago, la which he requested that gentleman to come here and defend his case. Gulteau also requested Scoville to obtain the assist ance of some able lawyer, and suggested the name of Emory Storrs, of Chicago, as such person. New Jersey wants Gulteau. Redbank, N. J., September 27. The legal authorities of Monmouth county have advised the attorney General of the state and the attorney general of the United States upon the propriety of filing accounts before the grand jury of Monmouth county, at its meeting next Tuesday against Guiteau for the murder of President Garfield. It is held that the waiver of the coroner's inquest by the State does not deprive the grand Jury of this county of its power to indict and try the criminal; also that the crim inal law of New Jersey does not disqual ify a citizen from serving on a Jury sim ply because be has expressed an opinion on the case to be tried. If Attorney General Stockton, of New Jersey, and Attorney General MacVengh consider that the trial can be held here the pris oner will be brought to New Jersey. The county prosecutor, John Lanuing, has decided to file before the grand jury an indictment against Guiteau simply as a precautionary measure so that if the Washington authorities deem it best to have a trial in New Jersey there shall be no gap left for the escape of Gulteau by the legal quibbles under the law of the District of Columbia. Effigies of Gulteau Burned. New York, September 20. A num ber of efligie3 of Gulteau were hung in different parts of the city to-night and attracted great crowds of people, who pelted them with sticks and stones and hooted and hissed. The police removed some of them, while others were reinov by the crowd. Getting a Notoriety. Owing to the publication of au ob Jectlonable nrllcle relating to President Garfield in the New Brunswick 2'lmen of Wednesday the 21st ult.,a bitter feeling was engendered, which Increased as the article became known. Theuext night a large crowd collected around the house of the editor at two different times, but the police succeeded in keeping order. On Friday a large number of citizens as sembled, and in the midst of an exol te nient burned the editor in efilgy. Cream that Will Hang. Dr. Cream and Mrs. Stott were In love at Belvldere, 111., and they concocted a peculiar plan for safely murdering the woman's husband. Stott being ill, the Doctor was called In to attend him. A prescription containing a safe amount of strychnine was sent to a druggist, and when the medicine came a large quanti ty of the poison was added. It was cal culated that Stott 's death would at once be traced to the strychnine, aud that its presence in a fatal proportion would be Hscrlbed to a blunder by the druggists. The murderers would probably never have been detected if the woman had not distrusted her partner. When she heard that he had himself announced that death was the result of poisoning, she mistakenly inferred that he meant to tlx the crime upon her, and Bhe has tened to make a statement inculpating him. His trial has just ended in con viction, and she will get otT with a lighter punishment, because she became a witness for the prosecution. - A Clever Detective. A Chicago police captain arrested a wife murderer, but could not find the remains of the woman, and the case seemed likely to fall through. Knowing that the prisoner would be speedily dis charged unless some proof was forth coming, the Captain entered the cell with a paper in his hand, and said: Your wife isn't dead, after all. She was found alive where you left her, and taken to the hospital. This is her sworn statement of what you did to her. She wants to see ycu. The murderer was completely deceived. On the way to the hospital, as he supposed, he was Induced to tell where be shot his wife, and there the body was found. Tons of Human Bones. An unpleasant sensation has been caused in Bristol, England, by the dis covery that a cargo of 300 tons of human bones had been landed there to the order of a local firm of mauure manufacturers.

London, Sept. 20. In London to-day the signs of mourning are generally and spontaneous, and all agree that there was never such a general wearing of mourning for a foreigner. Even many of the carters and drnymen have their whips deoorated with crape, and in what are usually the busiest thoroughfares, such as the Strand, Fleet street and Cheapside, many of the shops and all the daily newspaper ofiloes are partially closed.

E37A Sacramento Chinaman imported a woman from China as his slave, and accord ing to Chinese ethics iu California was regarded by his fellow couutrymen there as her absolute owner. Notwithstanding this another Chinamen fell in love with her, and secretly carried her off and married her. This was looked upon by the Chinese community in general as an outrage upon the rights of property, and the purchaser of the woman was aided by them in various endeavors to regain possession of her. Among other devices a criminal prosecu tion wsb resorted to ou the ground of in cest, a witness being procured to swear that the newly married couple were brother and sister. No lawyer, however, could be found In Sacramento willing to conduct the proseoutlon far enough to compel the District Attorney to take it up, and the suborned witness failing to appear before the committing magistrate, the cssewas dismissed. A warrant was then issued for the perjurer, but, as usual in such cases the police failed to find him.
