Accident to Gen. Grant. NEW YORK , December 27. General Grant , on leaving home to-day , slipped upon the ice and fell , receiving a severe shock and. seriously injuring his thigh. Frederick Grant , his son , says he has seen the surgeons who attended his father , but they were unable to determine whether his injury is dangerous or not. They eaid , however , that the limb would be paralyzed for the time being. No bones were broken , and the supposition is that the bruise affected the sciatic nerve. The gen eral , Immediately after the accicdeut , was assisted to his bed , where ho has remained ever since , lying in one position , on his back. While the injured leg is most pain ful , the general's health otherwise is good , and he is even comparatively cheerful under the circumstances. The surgeons antici pating nothing serious , but at the same time they predict that it will be several weeks before the general will be able to leave the house. _ The Las Vegas Gold Mines. Advices from Las Vegas , New Mexico , indicate great excitement among the citizens in regard to the late gold discoveries. Gold is said to have been found in paying quan tities on a lot at Hot Springs owned by a prominent resident of Topekaa few days ago by two miners employed to assist in the ex cavation of the ground for the new $100,000 court house. Next morning they were up with the lark staking out mining claims in courtyards , and now the hills and valleys round Vegas are all swarming with excited gold seekers , many of whom have met with success. Eight business men formed a com pany , purchased an interest in the court yard , and will try and develop it. A few pears ago Elizabethtown , near Las Vegas , had a population of 5,000 gold- miners , and Tor a number of years a company was en gaged in hydraulic mining , taking out $50- muually.

" Sullivan is drinking heavily and yester terday after the perfoimance at the /.oi theater , he engaged in an altercation will Pete McCoy , who smashed a chair over hii head. Sullhan faeized a lighted kerosem lamp and hurled it at McCoy , who dodged ; thus a\oiding serious results.

At Bath , 111. , Mrs. William Lippert , Sr. , wife of a wealthy farmer , shot ant mortally wounded a young man named Wil liam lUy. Hay circulated a story that Mrs. Lippert had been unduly intimate with one James 'Taylor. These damaging stories reaching the ears of Lippert and his wife , the former caused Rav , Mrs. Lippert and Taylor to be brought face to face. Hay ad mitted having made the charge and asseited that it was true , whereupon the woman pulled out a revolver and shot Ray in the abdomen before anyone could interfere. Mrs. Lippert , who is the mother of several children , was arrested and her friends gave bonds for her appearance. . > * - Paddy Shows the White Feather. CHICAGO , 111. , December 28. Paddy Ryan , who was expected to meet Sullivan in San Francisco next month , left for Toledo unexpectedly two days ago , and late last night telegraphed here : "I have to throw up everything at present " The Toledo Telegram says the truth is Ryan , in his re cent friendly bouts with Sheriff and Slade , has shown they were better men and he has no show with Sullivan , and consequently does not care to meet him. Efforts will still be made to kee"p the Sullivan match on. ! About Mrs. Surratt. Bath's Interview with Judge Holt. Said I : "Judge , what is jour esti mate of Sirs. Surratt , from your inti mate relation with the trial of the con spirators ? ' "I think , " said Judge Holt , "thatshe was the muster spirit among them all. She was a woman of unusual nerve , and also of unusual intelligence. During that trial her behavior was firm , her be lief unshaken ; she saw her danger and the methods of meeting the graver evi dence. I believe that she Kept those men up to their work that Booth him self was inferior to her iu purpose. The materials of the conspiracy were in general common. Mrs. Surratt was the social center of the whole affair. She kept the rendezvous , she gave shel ter to the others , she went out and found bo rd for them , she drove the sarriage out to her tavern where the arms and accessories had been hidden svithin a few hours of the crime. I consider her the center of the conspir- icy. " Tne judge remarked at another time : ; 'There was a young man by the name Df Welchnian in that trial , who was an inhabitant of Mrs. Surratt's house , of ; he same faith that she was , and who had known her long. In addition to ; he evidence which he gave at the trial , ie told some ve'ry singular things. Sooth came to Mrs. Surratt's house the lay of the assassination , and when he eft she was very much agitated , and she turned to this young Welchman , vho had been the classmate of her son ; o ot school , and'who drove her down ; o her tavern that day , and she said to rim : 'Lewis , pray for my intentions. ' [ have never doubted , " said Judge lolt , "that Booth , imparted to Mrs. Jurratt at that time the information .hat he meant to kill Mr. Lincoln at. the that night. " a i c.

' ' The Fnto Which Overtook the "City o Boston" Cnptftln Murray's Itlena and KxpcrlenceB. A few years ago 'the Oily of Jioatoi sailed from harbor , crowded with ai expectant throng of passengers bourn for a foreign shore. She never entered port. The mystery of her untimely one grows deeper as the years inerease , anc the Atlantic voyager , whcih the fierce winds howl around and danger is im minent on every hand , shudders as the name and mysterious fate of that mag nificent vessel -are alluded to. Our reporter , on a recent visit to New York , topk lunch with Captain Georgt Siddons Murray , on board the Ahiska of the Guion line. Captain Murray is n man of stalwart build , well-knit frame and cheery , genial disposition , lie has been a constant voyager for a quarter of a century , over lia.lt of that time hav ing been in the trans-Atlantic service , in the course of the conversation over the well-spread table , the mystery oi tne Gity of Boston was alluded to. "Yes , " remarkad the Captain , "I shall never forget the last night we saw that ill-fated vessel. I was chief officer of the City of Antwerp. On the day we sighted the City of Boston a furious southeast hurricane set in. Both ves sels labored hard. The sea seemed de termined to sweep away every vestige of life. When day ended the "gale did not abate , and everything was lashed for a night of unusual fury. Our good ship wa < i turned to the south to avoid the possibility of icebergs. The City oj Boston , however , undoubtedly won't to thnorth. . Her boats , life-preservers ana rafts were all securely lashud ; and when they went down , everything went with her , never to le-appear until the sea gives up its dead. " "What , in your opinion , Captain , waa the cause of the loss of the City of Boston ? " "The Oily of Limerick , in almost pre cisely the same latitude a few days la ter , found the sea full of floating ice ; and I have no doubt the City of Boston collided with the ice and sunk immedi ately. " Captain Murray has been in com mand of the Alaska ever since she was put in commission and feels justly proud of his noble ship. She carries thousands of passengars every year , and h-.s greatly popularized the Williams & Guion line , llemarking upon the bronzed and healthy appearance of the captain , the reporter said that sea life did not seem to be a , very great physi cal trial. " ! No ? But a person's appearance is not always a trustworthy indication of kis physical condition. For seven years I have been in many respects very much out of sorts with myself. At certain times I was so lame that it was difficult for me to move around. I could scarcely straighten up. I did not know what the trouble was and though I performed all my duties regularly and satisfactorily , yet I felt that I might some day be overtaken with some seri ous prostrating disorder. These troubles increased. I felt dull and then , again , shooting pains through my arms and limbs. Possibly th nest day I wouid feel Hushed and unaccountably uneasy , and the day following chiUy and des pondent. This continued until last December , when I was prostrated soon after leaving Queenstown , and for the remainder of the voyage was a helpless , pitiful sufferer. In January last , a friend who made the voyage with me , wrote me a lettar urging me to try a new course of treatment. I gladly ac cepted his counsel , and for the last seven months have given thorough and bisin ess-like attention to the recovery of my natural health , and to day I have the proud satisfac tion of sajing to you tlat the. lame back , the strange feelings , the sciatic rheumatism which have so long pursued me , have entirely disappeared through the blood purifying influence of Warner's Safe Rheumatic Cure which entirely eradicated all rheumatic poison from the system. Indeed , to me , it seems that it has worked won ders , and I therefore most cordially recommend it. " "And you have no trouble now in ex posing yourself to the winds ef the At lantic ? " "Not the least. I am as sound as a bullet and I feel specially thankful over the fact because I believe rheumatic and kidney disease is in the blood of my family. 1 was dreadfully shocked un my last arrival in Liverpool to learn that my brother , $ who is a wealthy China tea merchant , had suddenly iied of Bright's disease of the kidneys , ind consider myself extremely fortu nate in having taken my trouble in Lime and before' any more serious jffects were possible. " The conversation drifted to other : epics , and as the writer watched the race before him , so strong in all its out lines and yet so genial , and thought of , he innumerable exposures and hard ships to which its owner had been ex- 50i-edhe instinctively wished all who are suffering from t' e terrible rheumatic : roubles now so common might know > f Captain Mu ray's experience and ; he means by which he had been re stored. Pain is a common thing in this vorld , but far too many endure it when .hey might just as well avoid it. It is i false philosophy which teaches us to mdure when we can just as readily ivoid it.

[ Boston Transcript. j I i ' ' Lucca's First Singing. - 15o ton Uunlcnl Obwrrer. The following account of the original debut of Lucca comes to us from a gen tleman who heard the recital from her own lips : * \Vhen the-jgroat singer-wjwbnt'a lit tle more than nine years of age , she was sent to a boarding-suhool in which the rest of the scholars were much older and the children of much wealthier parents than sho. The result was that she was the'ob'ject'of many impositions and slights ; and when it came to the singing lessons , for which an extra charge was mndo to such pupils as pur sued the study , she was utilized to hold the music , for her-moro favored school mates. At last the great examination day approached , and throughout the school all was bustle and preparation. A certain toilet was prescribed for all the" scholars one that somewhat taxed the limited means of Lucca's mother and the music pupils hail several songs drilled into them for the occasion. The examination day arrived , and a largo audience of parents and f ricnds gath ered to enjoy the exhibition of progress made by the pupils. Lucca occupied a back seat , and , not expecting to bo called upon to answer any questions , she was greatly confused and never knew what answer she had made when the stern examiner did chance to ask her a single question. At last the class hi music was told to come for- i word. At this moment Little Lucca happened to espy in the audience her poor mother , with tears in her eyes and" a sad and regretful expression on her face. The sight went deep into the heart of the little girl and at once the thought came to Ifur , "What can I dote to please mamma ? " Almost with the thought came theunstvur : "Tho exam ination is all over but the singing. Go forward with the singing class. Yon are familiar with all the songs , and can sing any of them. " Lucca's resolu tion wa& made and acted upon at once ; and , to the dismay of the principal of the school , she stood up with the half " dozen other aspirants" honors la music. After these had sung the various - ous pieces to which careful preparation jjl had been given , the examiner turned to I Lucca and said , "Well , my little- girl , what can you sing ? " "I can sing any of those songs , " she replied timidly. "Sing the lost one , then , " said the ex aminer. Lucca was disappointed , for this was ft very simple and insignificant song , and she wanted to sing the "Avc Maria ; " but without hesitation she sang the piece in such a man ner that examiner and audience were wholly surprised , and the lit- Lle songster's mother was smiling gladly through a shower of tears. With an inspiration worthy of an older and i stouter heart , Lucca saw an opportu nity to avenge the impositions and in- suits that she had so long suffered , and her heart throbbed wddly as she said , "Please , sir , I'd like to sing the * Ave Marie ? ' " "I'm afraid its too difficult for you , " replied the examiner kindly ; "but yon may try it. " With a feeling that she was to do or die , but strong in the confidence of her ability to carry iut her design , and encouraged by her mother's proud and almost ecstatic iookof happiness , she sung the "Ave Marie , " her whole soul going into jvery note , her eyes brimming with : ears ; and so lost was she to all about icr that when she ceased singing she aeither heard the tumultuous applause ; hat shook the school room , nor saw ; he tears that glistened in every eye md rolled down the cheek of many a ietener , but stood motionless until she tvao recalled to her senses by feeling ; he warm breath of the examiner as he dssed her , while the tears coursed lown his cheeks in an unchecked flow , md lie said , in tones tremulocs with jmotion , "My dear little girl , you have lung like an angle from heaven. ' merioans Who Marry in England. .otidon World. It is quite a mistake to suppose that uost of the Americans who marry Eng- ishmen are rioh. A few are well-to- , md some half-dozen are rich. Lady larcourt has a large life income a ointure ; but her sister , Mrs. Sheridan , md no considerable fortune. Mrs. Ar- htir Paget will probably some day get 10,000 a year. A son of Lord Augus- us Loftus is married to the daughter of i veiy rich Philadelphia lady. Lady lesketh will , I suppose , have a very arge fortune , and "Mrs. Edward Bal- our probably has 100,000. Lady rtandeville and Lady Lister Kaye as- uredly were not married for money , 'ndeed , of the numberless American adies married to Englishmen , I can hink of no others now living who had ortunes. The first wife of Sir Charles Jurray had a fortune , now some 8,000 i year probably , which is enjoyed by ler son.On the other hand , many Tench and Germans have rich Ameri- ; an wives. The daughters of an Amer- can Irishman , long resident in Paris , rho made a fortune out of lotteries , lave married French grandees ; and he daughters of a Mr. Fisher , a rich etired "dry goods man , " have married talian nobles ; while some ladies tamed Lee , daughters of a New York wholesale grocer , have married into the reme de la creme of Germany.
