On Christmas night, in the vicinity of] 
a little post village a very few miles .lis- , 
tanl from Nashville, a dance was given, 
it promised lo l e one of those genuine 
hilarious bruakdow ns of " ye olden j 
time," in whose festivities host, b o a toa * I 
partake. Invitations 
had "been issued to all the beaux ami ; 
belles for miles and miles around, and 
the affair was to 1* the grandest of the 
holidays. Among the guests were a 
pair of newly wedded couple., w h  s. 
voyage matrimonial had just begun thai 
morning, in a shower of kind w ish. s and 
congratulations. \\'e are not too sure 
but tjiat the ovation was inaugurated for 
i ic-it es| eciMl honor and bonctit. lie 
that as it may, night came, moonless |hj| 
dear. The 'mansion was illumin at ed | 
with a blaze of light and jocund with the 
gayetyof its inmates. Soon the musi- 
cians began their choicest quadrilles, 
and the halls and parlors were thronged 
with Ihe graceful devotees of Terp- 
sichore. Theoltserved of all observer.- 
the lately wedded couples. The 
bright lights looked down on the lairy- 
like brides and vainly v icd in brilliancy 
with their sparkling ev es. The dashing 
rooms excited unlimited envy in Un- 
bosom of every swain present; but oth- 
erwise everything went merry as a mar- 
riage bell. 

kt a seasonable hour, sapper was au- 

uoiinced. and such a t". -;i — I as it was! The 
wits of th. confectioner had been tested 
in t he arrangement and manufacture of

aud Ihe can was replaced in a pantry in 
the hall, opposite the licd-room. Ke-

an unusual crackling, and on looking

mat mm Jfre, asd taking a pail and tub of 
water threw it on the flames in the hall, 
but lo no effect. They then made their 
escape by the roof of an adjoining build- 

The flames ran along Ihe hall of the 
third story, thence up the stairway to 
the fourth and fifth stories. In this lat- 
ter story two young men, named Wallace 
P., and Louis Card, brothers, boarders 
with Mr. N ichols, lodged. As t he flames 
reached this story they probably became 
aware of the existence of the "lire, and 
through excessive fright, they risked ihe 
llaaaria of jumping from this fearful 
hight to the pavement Is'iieath. The 
ahl 'v is aaajael an only, but at all events 
they jumped from a window in the lifth 
story, and landing upon the sidewalk 
beneath, the necks of both the young 
men were broken, and the right arm of 
Louis fractured in two places, the sever- 
ed and ragged lione protruding through 
the flesh. The arm ot \\ alla.-e 1\ was 
also fractured. The young men were 
seen by I'harles M illei\ of the;.John 
Truck' company, as they jumped, one 
after the other, "from the window. 

Drs. Cook and Lov ering were at once 
called, and, proceeding to the place, 
found Louis, the younger, dead; but 
Wallace P. survived about half an hour 
iu an insensible condition. Fverything 
was done for him that science could sug- 
gest, but to no avail. The Isidies ot the

afterward the privilege of the Arkansas 
and the Mississippi to the mouth of the

ward canceled, leaving the policies in the

Such lieing the . as.-, her insurance does 
not hold good for navigating the Missis-

her owners, who are the losers thereby.

William Saladin, a well-known brew - 
er, and an old resident of this city, last 
nighi committed suicide by hanging. 
Ue was found this morning iu the third 
story of his brewery, on the corner of 
Archer avenue and the Pittsburg and 
Fort Wayne track, suspended to a tap 
which protected seven feet above the 
floor. He had piled un a numlier of 
bricks and placed a board on top of them, 
then, after adjusting the rope, had evi- ki.-ked away the boards. The 
body was discov ered about 7 o'clock this 
morning. Mr. Saladin was a man of 
considerable property, but had lost 
about $3,609 or f6,0Uu oh his brew ing 
lately, and this, added to the fact that 
he was laboring under a -light attack of 
delirium tremens, is the probable c uise

might "take place on my journey. I now 
comply with are promise. To begin

went to Kansas city, bough', a ticket to 
Denver at eighty dollars by Uie Bssuhj

could not travel it. At Fort Hays 
(Smoky Hill routci, we had snow -iv-

within thirty-two miles of Sheridan, the 
present terminus of the I'niou Facinc 
railroad, eastern division, where vv 
completely slu.-k fast, and on exainin: 
lion found we had uot one mouthful . 
anything; to SS&. The storm set in ina me: 
furious MOHMr. Iu all my life I hav e 
never w itnessed so hard ustorui, and for 
live days it lasted, aud for two days and 
three nights we had uot the lirst mouth-

who should come to our relief but two 
Butl'alonians, who are in the I". P. com- 
pany employ, at Sheridan, byname Mr. 
J. Bohnert, yard master at Sheridan, 
aud Mr. John H. Bobertsou, freighter ou 
the plains, and brought us some ham 
and crackers. The whole of the Smoky

across the great" plains, aud there is no 
place to get anything to cat for ci-.h tj  
one miles, there being onlv a w ah I I U

and for the purpose of guarding all

advise them by all means to take the

created is as much a matter of common 
fame us the existence ol tho Potomac 
river. One of the results of this fend in 
the unhappy family lias ls-en to shorten 
the intciidc-l stay of Congressmen at 
their homes and other places of holid i V 
resort. It is well understood that the 
\ ':■ I'n sident-elect will hurry bad. 
several days sooner than he meant at 
lirst to do. and v 1th him will come Wil- 
son from the Fast. Wade from the West,

and Coiikling. are to find nut, through 
Washbumc, if possible, exacilv what 
tieneral Urant wants, and then what 
less be will accept. U is announ. d 
now, almost oflli laJli, that a caucus is 
hs held on the night of the lib of

one has conlident iall v sMt to all 
the Radical members under t he franks 
of Schenck and Morgan, of the BsMib- 
licau Congressional Campaign C inmit- 
tee. Bv a single demand for repeal of 
the Civil Tenure bill, followed bv no re- 
iterated or other subsequent demonstra- 
tions, i ,en. Grant's ultimatum has | ,iu- 
ed force and favor among nianv who 
counsel peace. Those of the Senators

undeniable, however, that Messrs. Mor-

It is .irtain that Mr. Jeaekes 1 v'vill 1^

however, that the bill ■rnmt pass this

this— a majority of the liadical members 
would not dare vote for the bill in the!

Here a man is proud of his four-in-

Isms alreadv worn! Might not one feel 
more Brand With a whole wagon-load, 
•lime new ? Mr. Fisk never had a turn- 
out on the avenue, or in the park, to at- 
tract so much attention as he would to- 
day, driving through the city, mounted 
on the Ikix of his peddler's vv a^on with 
In- \ ermont four-in-hand. 

As to what Mr. Bowles wrote about 
the State prison and the lunatic asylum 
that even many oi Mr. Flak's friends 
predicted one of these for him— which 
xirtion of the passage was quoted bv 
in his atndavit— the kind w ish 
riser was added to that 
statement, as follows: "But we hope 
and believe that h» will escape from 
both." It might be illegal to put in ac- 
tion a wish that a man should escape 
from a state prison or a lunatic asv luni, 
it he were already in the one or the 
other, but there would be nothing Ma- 
licious about it. And even suppose h* 
had aat been committed— tako for in- 

stanee the case of Oomasodoap Meado*i 
■on would It be Ubeihms to ariah that 
lie should never lie committed, as his 
father was, toa lunatic asylum f 

But Mr. Bowles' good "wishes do not 
SSem tO have been K-ei,, located by Mr. 

Fisk. lie not only did not wish that 
Mr. Bowies should escape a prison, bin 
he wished to put him into one, and did 
put him into one. This was returning 
not good for evil, but evil for good.

It ia unite evident that Oen. (Grant's 
silence is not the result of obtaseness or 
want of Ideas. Since his return to 
Washington, he has not been remarka- 
ble for reticence. On the contrary, he 
seems to hare 1 
sion to expn 

j uai before Con gr ess met, he announc- 
ed himself as desiring to see passed aa 

amendment to the Constitution m.ik;,.^ 
« uniform rule of suffrage. He also re- 
iterated his favorable opinion of the 
W id, amendment, limiting a I'resideiil 
to one term. 

Pernap. the most outspoken things he 
has said were spoken yesterday at inter- 
view, had with several Congressmen. 
Among them was Senator Chandler, of 
Michigan. In theoourse of conversation 
the Senator urged the claims of certain 
Pacific Railroad schemes, presenting, of 
course, the plausible argument that tbe 
development of tbe country, Ac., would 
more than warrant the outlay, lieneral 
'.riiit, in the most emphatic manner, de- 
clared against all schemes of tbe kind. 
The first duty of the t 
said, was to prepare for 
the national debt. In o 
the mast rigid economy 
necessary in all public 
Subsidies to railroad schemes, unless 
shown to be absolutely necessary for the 
completion of important rouUs, must l»e 

opp. ised. 

The Senstor, of course, was Dit con- 
vinced, and reiterated his own views. 
Mentioning that he was going home a.s 
was understood, to look after his re-elec- 
tion 1, General tirant remarked jocularly, 
but meaninalv, that he hoped he would 
stay, having 111 view that he .wild be 
spared. He could l e spared if his 1 
continued as stated. 

\t another inter\ iew with members. of 
the House, fu neral itrant took occasion 
to urge the absolute necessity of a ses- 
sion of the Forty-first Congress, to begiu 
on the 1th of March next. He said that 
-' s: .■; hi xv is ■,• l ehiud the real 
needs of the country, and that, further, 
his administration would require the 
presence of Congress to aid in the adop- 
tion of measures that might be found ib 
solutely necessary for tbe pacification of 
the .sauntry. 

This ends, without doubt, all attempts 
to repeal tbe act bv which each Congress 
is required to meet on tbe 1th of March, 
though it is understood the House judi- 
ciary committee agree to report a bill for 
that purpose. 

Another ami desirable evidence of the 
General's watchfulness is sees In the 
sending of members of his staff to mske 
thorough inspections in the disturbed 
Ststes. It is undeastood thev are direct - 
"d to make the most careful examination 
into the state of affairs. 1 ieneral Parker

For some minutes they could not lie in- 
duced to come together, bat at last the 
Californian reached over the rimr-side 
and struck bis rat with a little Leather 
thong. Immediately on this it darted 
upon its opj onoiit, w hich .11 once tamed 
to face the fight. 

Restin,.' ii|H,n its hind legs, the red rat 
struck out nine or ten times, with in- 
credible speed, at its opponent's head, 
but the black one watching its oppor- 
tunity, darted in, and botk raited oyer 
together, uttering the most pier, in- 
squeals. The scene in the ring at this 
moment was absolutely sicl.ening. The 
partisans of each rat swore h uribly, and, 
upon one of them attempting to get over 
ihe side of the ring, he wa- struck bv 
the rintr-kee|»er with a thick stake— the 
blow cutting his face to the cheek bone. 
1'or sev eral minutes the fight continue 1. 
and it w as impossible to tell w hich was 
getting the best of the encounter. At 
length, however, the screams grew more 
loud, and then gradually died away, 
and. on rcsohlng the ring side, it was 
seen thai the Norway rat had bitten the 
black one at the back of the neck, and 
bail held it until death had ensued. So 
tierce was the anger of the victor, that its 
owner had to biteitsiail viciously l»efore 
it would unclasp its teeth. The Cali- 
fornian subsequently put hii rat in a 
bag sad took it aw ay, himself «l.'sj "in" 
by the light. 

- The story ot the success of the 
Low ii.-r.inii novelist, Fritz Renter, isas 
u..ii.,. rl .! as anything in the history of 
literature. Ho is not far from fifty vears 

•  f aire, and had never published a "book 
seven years ago. L'p to that time be had 
lived in abject poverty, giving lessons at 
the rate of five or ten cents each, ami 
wandering about the small towns of 
Mecklenburg and Ponierania. He is 
now one of the most popular writers in 

• Verinany. His last novel, "The Mon- 
tagues and Capulels of liuroianv," sold 
. m the day of its publication to the utim- 
ber of l.'t,0(Ki, which iseqoivateat to a sale 
of seven times that number in this coun- 
try. His stories have been translated 
into other languages, and his OOpyrigtUa 
hav e made him a rich lii. that ho has 
built himself a beautiful villa near Eise- 
nach, in full view of Luther's taaaaB 
Wait burg. 

Hf"A curious will case is on trial at 
Bath. Me., the ground of action being 
that the v  ill and codicil were made un-

husband of the testatrix. There have

i .-i.-ience to the Pendleton theory, 
and the offensive personal allusion 111 
Mr. Greeley *B letter, Mr. Morton says: 

"In a speech in the Senate last summer 
I argued that, under the statutes creat- 
ing the legal tender notes antl live-twen- 
ty bonds, the Government had the right 
to use the old or existing notes in pay- 
ment of these boutls. This argument" 1 
e r e fa esd with the declaration that the 
Brat datygf the Qoraraasaal w as to re- 
turn to specie payments, which would 
render this ill! eat Bill UB tm portaat, aa4 
denying the right of the Government to 
issue new notes w ith w hich to pay th.*- 
bonds. What was called the Pendleton 
theory— that the   iovcrument has the 
right to print new notes with which to 
pay the live-twenty bonds— I have al- 
ways condemned. In this position, in 
what you call the greenback theory, the 
infamously dishonest proposition, th" 
criminal blunder, you need not put me 
tow a aa repentant. Yon have no evi- 
dence of my repentance." 

W.vshini. ion, lH?e. 30.— The Commis- 
sioner of Internal Revenue has decided 
to allow the repacking of stocks of tobac- 
co now on hand in bulk packages into 
packages to conform w ith the recent leg- 
islation by ( 'ongrcss, under the super- 
vision of a government inspector. Act- 
ing Commissioner Harlan has issued 
supplemental regulations intended to 
secure correctness in the monthly reports 
ofthe assessor of tax on distilled spirits. 
The Acting Commissioner has also is- 
sued instructions as to the survey of dis- 
tilleries, in w hich it is stated, in estimat- 
ing the number of dry inches to be al- 
lowed for lot mentation, the assessor and 
person designated to aid him must be 
governed, in a great measure, by the 
doptbof the fermenting tubs. From the is lielieved 
that a fair allowance will Vie from three 
10 seven dry inches for corn, and any 
mixture of corn and rye, n it exceeding 
one-half rye to one-half corn, and trom 
sev en to twelve dry inches for rye. and 
any mixture of rye "exceeding one-half.

The Ijenefactions of Mr. i.eorge Pea- 
ba lvare far larger than generally sup- 
posc.l. A few days ago, when Bjs'latest 
gift of half .1 million of dollars to the 
London poor was announced, we spoke 
of his donations as amounting to an ag- 
gregate of ov or lour millions of dollars. 
But we hue bc. u furnished with an au- 
thentic list . : Mr. I'eabody's gifts, and 
we find that they amount toover double 
this sum; iu fact, thev ..mount in all to 
over irn ssMsMM e/aaflarahl our cur- 
rency. The following list gold valuesi 
w ill display the remarkable facts; and 
thai Hal Am I Bel include the large sums 
he gave to further American interests in 
the great Exhibition of Bsil, nor other 
mrm Minis he has giv en tor international

tern, charge the whole premium paid 
the owners, and then retain any s. r 
dividend which might be 111.1. le bvt' 
companies as their own private pen. 
site. In most cases the sum thus fttm 
ed is t--o small to lie worth disputu 
alHJiii, but oiK-e in a w hile it liecomt-s 
considerable importance. For exampl 
a banking firm in this city late 
made advances on a cargo of rail 
iron, and for their greater se- 
curity insured it, charging the premium, 
nearly $7,000, to the owners. Subse- 
quently they received on this premium 
a scrip dividend of *J,S«iii, which, in 
ao-ortlance with the custom we speak of, 
they insisted on keeping. The owners 
of the iron objected, aud failing other 
remedies, resorted to legal measures. 
• ui a full hearing of the esse by tbe gesv- term of the Supreme Court ot tin- 
State, it was decided that the custom 
could not override the plain rule of law. 
1 hut a pci-son holding property in trust 
must account for all his receipts from it. 
and the scrip was adjudged to belong to 
the owner* of the iron. The case mm* 
excited great attention in commercial 
circles, and will, it is probable, break up 
the practice heretofore prevailing.
