The testimony at the inquest tit two men run over by a train on tho Pan Handle Railroad, gives rise to much speculation. John O'Donnell, the en- gineer of the locomotive, and the prin- cipal witness, says the morning was very foggy, yet he observed im obstruc- tion tho track, but not until too late to stop. At the first glimpse he obtaiced, there appeared but ono body 011 the track, but getting nearer, he saw two men, one of whom raised himself npon his elbows, looked calmly at the swiftly approaching death, and then laid down again, his head over one rail and his feet extended across the other, The smallei man was struck first and rolled over several times, and becoming en- tangled iu tin' machinery, was dragged a considerable distance, where it was left bv tlio whet^fs of the engine ill a mangled condition. The head of the other man was cut off as though it had been severed by a knife, and both feet wers taken off over the ankles. Other- wise the body was not mutilated. A pass book was found 011 the body of the smaller man, and it contained the name of Wm. M. Lloyd. Near where the men were killed, a revolver was found, two chamlK'rs of which were empty, and Imre evidence of their recent dis charge. Lloyd’s body, although taken up immediately after tin* engine had left it, was cold, and indicated that life had been extinct for some time. It is generally supposed that tho unknown man first shot and killed Lloyd, then laid his body across the rail and took his place beside it, calmly awaiting death. Hundred,” by a full chorus of over 1 ♦*,- 000 voices, an orehestra of 1,500, and the grand organ. This was followed by au overture from Hien/.i, chorus of Damascus, piano solo by llendel, and a I four-part song, utnlt r direction of Zor | rhon, the Intlamatus from Stabat Ma ter, in which Madame lludorndorf sang a solo. The second part of tho programmo was opened by the United States Ma- rine l>and, who played several patriotic airs. Th«« singing of the “Star-spun gled Manner” followed. The grami chorus was given with cannon and bells, all the military bands, full orchestra, great organ and full chorus. The au- dience was wild with enthusiasm. The ooneert w;dtz of Strauss, “On tho Heaiitiful Danube," followed. Tin music was conducted by himself, and was a great success. Verdi’s anvil cho- rus was then performed, after which the concert closed by singing “Nearer my God to Thee.” knqland’s DAI. Three Persons I'ohone«! to Meath ill Missouri. Tho St. Louis Republican learns by correspondence from Hermitage, Mo., • d a terrible poisoning case which oc- eurred in the town of Wheatland 011 Wednesday Iasi. - It appears that 11 young man named Moore applied to the county physician for a prescription to cure ague. Objecting to quiuitie, the doctor prescribed some bitters com- posed of Peruvian bark, dogwood and whisky. ‘ Moore took a dose, started for home, which he was barely uble to reach, and shortly after died. Drs. Redfield and Barnes, who were sum- moned by Mr. Moore’s mother, to quiet her fears that her son had been poi- soned, each took a dose of tho bitters, and soon after started for home,but had proceeded only a short distance when Dr. Hames was taken violently ill, and was compelled to dismount from his horse, and was just able to drag him- self home. He died during the night. Dr. Redfield, feeling premonitory symptoms of ¡»oisoniug, spurred his horse to tho utmost speed, and just reached his residence, when he fell in- sensible at the doer. Ho was earned inside and died within fifteen minutes. The matter had not been investigated when the letter was written; therefore it is not known whether the doctor who prepared the bitters made a mistake,or whether the druggist from whom he procured the medicine committed a blunder. New English Caurihlute for Favor. Boston is just now coddling Mr. Sid- ney Woodlett, an Englishman lately over, who has distinguished excellence as a public reader. He rendered Long- fellow’s “ Courtship of Milos Stand- ish” to a largo audienee of the elito the other night, and altogether made a heavy drain on their superlatives by the charming way in which he did it. One of the accredited interpreters «if Boston appreciation thus sums up tho the performance: It was not the boldness of the outline, but the dehoae.y of tho shading which caught your eye. No daintiness of conceit was so subtle as to escape the reader. He was by turns bluff Miles Staudish, the warlike captain, hearty, passionate and strong; John Alden, the scribe, scholar, and gentleman, ami teuder lover; and, most marvelous of all, he was Priscilla, charming little combination of honesty and coquetry, of English reserve and Puritan straightforwardness, altogether a wo- man, and just fit for human nature’s daily food.—Njtrinjjfield (Mans.) 1\>- publican. Somkhody has given the editor of the Louisville Commercial a bouquet of clover composed of one cluster of seven leaves,one of six, ten of five and eleven of four. • Tho second day’s concert was a de- cided improvement upon tin' first, mu- sically speaking. Being tho English day, the Grenadier Guards band was the object of attraction. It is under tho leadership of Dan Godfrey, tho celebrated polka and waltz writer, autl numbers tifty-eight members. As they made their appearance in the midst of the vast chorus, and filed down to the trout in their gorgeous uniforms, tin organ playing “God Save the Queen,” the whole audience and chorus rose to its foot, and a scene of tho wildest do senption followed. The band played the overtures to “Robin Hood,” ami 44 Der Froischutz,” and Godfreys own peculiar “ Mabel Waltz.” In response to an • ncurt tho band gave “ God Save the Queen,’’ Madame Rudorsdorffsing- ing the solo in the third verse, all the singers, the orchestra organ and artil- lery joining iu the chorus. The effect was fairly electrical. And still another rticorc came, :unl when the Englishmen struck up the “ Star Spangled Banner,” with tin* whole orehestra and chorus, the whole groat audience sprang to its foot, and the scene was fairly iudcscnb able. At its close tho bninl was greet etl with rounds of applause, closing with three terrific cheers, wliiclf drowned the fanfaronade of the orchestra. The next prominent feature was the singing of Madame Pcschka-Leutner of Berlin, which also created a perfect furore. Madame Arabella Goddard, the pianist, made her first appearance playing Thalberg’s “ Last Rose.” Straus« made his seeond.appearance, and was received with the tamo hearty applause as 011 Monday. He led his well known waltz, 44 Wiue, Women and Stuig,-’ in hid own characteristic man nor. The other prominent features wore Dudley Buck’s “ Festival Hymn,” a superb composition ; the Leonora Overture to “ Fideliothe finale of the third act of “ Ernanithe boquet of artista, which was encored ; tho ro- manza from “ I/Eclair,” from “ Eli jah.” Till: OKKMAN DAY. Wednesday was the German day; and the attractions of the Kaiser Franz Grenadier Baud, the Berlin Cornet Quartette, Franz Stf.iuss, and Leiitner called out by far tho largest and most enthusiastic audience which lias as- sembled. It opened with the old Lutheran choral, Kin Kmtc Hurt/, which was the initiatory number of the first jubilee, and was given with the full power of the chorus, orehestra, and organ. The seeond nnnibei was the overture to “Tannhäuser,” which, like the over- ture to “ Rienzi,” was magnificently given, with Gilmore himself at tho baton. The violin chromatics, taken by over 500 strings, wore wonderful each in their effects. The leading choral efforts were “ Yet Doth the Lord,” from “Elijah,” Men- delssohn’s “ Farewell to the Forest,” unaccompanied ; The German Union Hymn, composed and led by Keller, and the 44 Blessing of the Sword,” from the “Huguenots.” The German liand met with an ova- tion fully equal, if not superior, to that which was ^ivcn the English Band. Their uniform was a very neat one, ami their helmets, adorned with plumes, gave them a very picturesque appear- ance. They wore encored four times,aud played a fantasia from 44 The Pro- phet,” the overture to “Oberou,” fan- tasia 011 theme from the “ Afraeaine,” 44 Hail Columbia,” “ Yankee Doodle,” and the “ Watch on the Rhine.’’ The national airs created a perfeet whirl wind of applause, aud at the close three migety cheers were given by the audi- enee. Tho cornet quartette from Merlin played the English bugle song, and, be- ing < nr on«/, replied with one of Meu- delssolri’s four part songs. Abt received a very handsome wel- come, and led his own familiar song, 41 When the Swallows Homeward Fly,” which wasbeautifully given under the magnetism of his presence. Madame Li'iitner repeated Proeh’s variations, ami Bendel captivated the audience with more of his piano THU FRENCH DAY. There were nearly 50,000 persons in tin; Coliseum on Thursday, thirty thou- sand being auditors. The first piece was the “Gloria,” from Mozart’s twelfth mass. Lentner’s Festival Overture followed. Madame Rudors- dorff then sang 44 Let tho Bright Sera pliim,” which was greeted with pro- longed and continued applau.*e. The Anvil Chorus followed which, as usual, was received with demonstrations of approval. Strauss next led the chorus in his own concert waltz of “A Thou- sand and one Nights,” carrying the audienee by storm. Hayden’s chorus, 44 The Heavens are telling,” followed, and was never better rendered. A fantasia 011 the piano by Welili closed the first part of the i^rogiammo. Tho second part, was opened by Madam«* Leiitner, who sang the “Magic Flute.” At this stage tin' band of tho Garde Re- publicaine of Paris appeared and was greeted with cheers, waving of hats and handkerchiefs, and all soits of friendly demonstrations. As soon 11s comparative quiet was restored, *the band, under tho leadership of M. Pan- ins, unexpectedly struck up “Hail Col- umbia,” when a scene of undescrilmble enthusiasm ensued. .Cheer after cheer drowned the music, every one in tho house rising and standing 011 scats, and several baskets of flowers were sent to the band from the r.udience. At the conclusion of this demonstration, the run AlIBTIUAN DAY. Notwitstunding tho great heat, a largo audience was in attendance on Fri- set apart as tho Austrian day. Number tin» first was a national hymn, 44 Angel of Peace,” tho words written by Dr. O. W. Holmes, aud tho music by Keller, full of abroad,flowing harmony, which was admirably given. Thcehorus also sung, “Soo the Conquering Hero Come,” from “Judas Maccalucs; 44 Sleepers, awake”’ from Mendels- sohn's 44 Farewell to the Forest,” and the familiar old hymn “Coronation.” The audience joined iu singing the last, and the artillery marked time, which gave a ludicrous effect to the good old penny-royal. The iusrunicntal 1111111 bers for orchestra was tho “Kuisei Overture,” by Westniayer, dedicated to tho Emperor «if Austria, ami made up mainly of Austrian airs. Strauss, iu liouor «*f tho «lay, changed tho waltz s«>t down 011 tho programme, the “Kun- stelor Liben,” for tho 44 Beautiful Blue Danube,” which was heartily <»can if. In reply, the 44Pizzicato Polka” was given. Mad.Loutner sang the “Emani," 44 luvolami ’’ in magnificeut style, and with a mil Italian method, showing great versat ility. For her « nrnrr she gave «»no of Abt’s songs,with Abt lead iug in beautiful flalhnl style, making : marked contrast with her first number, Mr. Arlmcklv, the favorite Boston cornet player, aud Gilmoro’s band, play«‘d Debcriot’s Seventh Ail in mas- terly style, and received a double < n- »•<*/•«, which he tiuished with “Last Rose of Summer,” both with and with- out the mute. The main feature «if interest was tho second appearam'o «if the English Oren- atliers’ Band, who mot with another ovation. Their first number was the overture of “Somiraiuide,” and the second a selection of iips from M«'yer- boer’s operas. At the close «if these the chorus and orchestra complimented the band bv pt’rforming 44God Sa\< tho Qiu'en,'* amid great applause. Tim baud then played an American national THE t.KEAT CARICATI)HIST. air, following it up Patrick’s Day in the Morning.” After they had closed, and, as they wore marching away, the whole orches- tra and chorus arose and struck up “Auld Lang Syn«\” Th«> audience joined in, ami the effect w as fairly elec- trical. T1IE RUSSIAN DAY The audience on Saturday was some- what larg«-r than upon any pr«>vious day. The Froischutz overture, Hellers Am«>rican Hymn and Strauss’ ('oncert Waltz, 44 New Wein,” wore finely given, the latter being enoorod. Madame Leutnor «nit di«l her previous numbers in “Voryana Waltz.” The 44 Star Spangled Banner” was now given, Mrs. Houston West singing her solo in a style that elicited an encore. One of tho principal features of the day was the performance of the German itand, in T'lunhoseur overture, which met with th«' warmest of receptions. The band left the stage after playing Hail C-olumbia. Abt’s 4< When tho Swallows Homeward Fly” was given by spe- cial reqiu'st, le«l by the composer. Tin'll a combi nation «if 0110 hundred ami fifty colonel singers. It'd by Hyer’s sister and her Nashville troupe sang 44 Mine Eyes have Soon the Glory of the Lord ’’ to the tune of 44 .John lirown,” which was repeated by tho chorus. The performanoe closed with a popu lar rendition by tho chorus and audi- ence of 44 The Morning Light is Break- ing.” A .Mammoth Itear in Nevada (’«unify, California. Tin* Truckee Republican, says a griz- zly bear, known as 44 Old Brin,” has lived in the vicinity of 'Webber Lake for many years past, and various at4 tempts have been made to kill, or cap- ture him alive. llundreds«if ritfoshots have Won lirod at him without any other apparent result than toáronse Ins ferocity ami endanger the lives of those who lired at him.

The sttiry «>f Tommy Nast’s artistic career is a little pt'culiar. His father was a professional musician, and wlmn 1 llrst knew Tommy the old gentleman was playing that extension brass, shove-out aml-piill-hack, force-pump sort «»f old fashioned horn they used to Imvo in bands, (a fnoud sajsit is called a trombone), in tho orchestra of Wal- 1 ace’s old theater, corner of Broome and Broadway, at ten dollars a week. Nast, senior, wnutoil Tommy to bo- eomc a musician, and, to that end, iis«>«1 to thrash him with him a leather strap most enthusiastically and faith- fully, iu order to mako him learn the scales «111 the violiu. Thomas, how- ever, had a genius for drawing and knew it. He used t«> beg his father t«> permit him t«i become an artist, to all of which the truly conscientious old German gentleman (miw many years «lead) would reply with additional d«»s«‘s of strap. At last young Thomas became uc «piaiuted with Mr. Borghuus, now, and for more thau a dozen years, one of Trunk Leslie’s chief artists; aud to Merghaus, who was also a German, he contlded all his woes. He showed his drawings to Merghaus and to Sol Eyt- inge, who is ono «»t our most delicate and fanciful American draughtsmen, aud who was at that timo with Leslie; ami they, seeing there was really some- thing in the b«iy, then eleven yeaisold, advised him to continue his efforts to convince his father that he could earn more money as an artist than as h mu sician. Tommy went homo that night, and to the Gormau parent, having come at 1*2 m. (midnight), lie thus remarked: 44 Father, I must be an artist. If you let me go and learn t«i draw, iu a year or tw«i I can earn twenty ihrilars week : and, iu a few years after that, 1 can bring in from fifty to seventy-five dollars every week; if you make me learn music, I may slave all my life, and 1 shall very lik«*ly find myself at fifty years old just where you are now, playing for ten dollars a week iu some- body's baud, liable to a discharge any minute, ami tint ot au engagement a quarter of the year, even when things are at their b«\st.” Whether it was the argument or the determination of yonug Nast to learn to draw,in spite of the paternal forbid- • ling, that carried the point, 1 know u«)t; certain it is, however, that the next day, Tommy Nast entered Frank Leslie's employ, and was aissigned a «l«“sk between Merghaus and Eytinge, which two thorough artists and amia- ble gentlemen gave Nast all the regu- lar instructions he has ever had. The young artist more than kept his wor«l; 111 less than a year he could earn not #‘20, but tlirioe that, on Leslie’s pa- per alone, beside making as much more 011 outside work. His father lived to see that his s«»n was right, and to see that sou bringing lnmio his hundretl dollars in gol«l every Saturday night, while he was humbly toiling away for the same ..Id Imrdly earned ten dollars. Nast’s industry and imaginative genius rapidly earri«*d him forward in the profession, and I presume that for the past ten years, tlicr«* has not been a week when Itis work, taking his car- toons for illustrated papers, his illus- trations for books and other business, has not been e«pial to at least $50 a day, and up to three tim«'s that sum. Nast’s nmthor is a thorough German, a most estimable woman, I am told, and an excellent mother—but she can not speak, «>r could not when 1 saw li«*r first and last, a dozen words of Eug‘ lisli. Several years ago Nast was introduc- ed to an English family, consisting of the father, mother, boii and three «laughters. The mother is a fine speci- men «if the thorough-bred English lady, and her daughters are like unto her. The mother is an aunt of James Par- ton, the biographer—ho who has writ- ten the liv«*s of Andrew Jackson, Aaron Burr, Horace Greeley, etc, and who is known all over tho country as oue of the most versatile and accomplished magazinists ami men of letters in the land. The eldest daughter, Sally, of fliis la«ly (Mrs. Edwards), Mr. Thomas Nast mat tied some 11 in«' years ago. They have had three children, all, I lliink, now living. So. you see, if the iricatuiist «li«'s, he leaves abundant material lor a new generation. Change Among the Knells! Working- men. A London Corresp«>ndent of a Cana- dian paper notices with sarprise the profusion of silks and ribbons with which tho women of tho English work- ing classes were decorated «»11 a lab- holiday occasion iu that • ;ity. The w«irst of it is tliut this prosperity up- t>ears confined to the clasu of skilled aborers. Still tho movement for higher wages for the latter is rapidly spreading. Wages have been risen one or two shil- lings per week in several of ihe midland counties, and the movement speads. What is most surprising is the moderation and good sense dis- played by those uneducated, down- trodden hinds. There is no bluster, no threatening of landlords, no r«*sort to the outrage of rick burn) ng of forty years ago, and there is a notable desire to accept the lead of the more liberal among the aristocracy. “A lit of land” is the cry. At every meeting;some man, 44 well tiresse«l and respectable look- ing,” rises to say ln»w ho has raise«l himself to comparative comfort by renting one or two acres of land for his own cultivation—<jf course, as gar- <leu ground. The correspondent be- liev«!S there will be wouder’ul changes iu the next «lecade in the matter of the soil of England, but think* -they will be ]>eaceful changes, brought about mainly by the landlords voluntarily giving the farm laborers .lie 44 bit «>f land” they want so much, iu aid of wages. English Philanthropy. Ono of the most lieautiful and suc- ocssful philanthropies in Eugland, which a vear ago grew out of the mo- therly, sheltering instinct of a warm- hesrted| Quakeress, whose wlnde life had been passed in helpful deeds of pity and love, is the establishment of a crcr/it, or baby nursery iu London, where jHior women who are compelled to work may leave their billies «luring Hit? day, taking them home at night clean, happy aud well fed The chil- dren are imt only l«>oketl after, but are taken into healthy surroundings and given companio iship ami amusement. No children could be better off. They are not iu the more charge of hired nurses, but are looked after with an ever watchful charity. Mrs. Hilton, the originator of the plan aud matron of the school, has surely taught ladies, in this conn try as weil as in England, who want a charitable mission, where to find oue. A cradle sclniol in the naiffbborlnjod of every crowded street would soon tell on both the health aud moruls of the (Mipulation. Such schools are now among the most pressing want« of the poorer classes, not only iu Europe, but here in America. Itcvcrcml (iciitlcnieii Visi! Vesuvius. The Rev. Newman Hall has been t«j Vesuvius with Brother Cuyler. He looked «lowu a fissure where could bo s«>on the fiery lava, still in molten con- dition.

A boiler in the extensive shops of the Ohio Brush and Wire W«irks, lo- cated within the Wales (Ohio) peni- tentiary, exploded on Saturday, just after the convicts had st.arb*«l to work, with a terrible noise and dreadful etleet. The Hying boiler tore out the large tliree-story buihliug in whicli it was placed, making it a mass of ruius, ami tore the outside walls aud roof oil from Huff’s cooper shop and George Gill’s stove foundry, not far <}fi.

Then Ire sat upon a chair and placetl his head between his hamls,elbows on his knees, and gazed intently on the floor. Then he sprang to his feet, and replied to some feeble «piestion of his wife, who had not risen since the day she gave bit th to a stranger, by a loud assur- ance that he had it, and taking her in his sturdy arms the blankets, the baby in her arms, he liftc«l her out and held her over the black drawing 011 the floor.

Some miscellaneous literary hacks, »iut. of employment, might take a hint from the exploits of au enterprising in- dividual who is mentioned iu one of the Liverpool papers. The individual in question made it a point to supply clergymen with sermons at the rate of a guinea a sermon, but was willing to make a doduetion to any oue who promised to be a regular customer. He appeared to have been successful, and to have driven quito a flourishing trad«'. Probably the sermons he pro- vided were «piite as good as the major- ity of those that are preached from American or English pulpits. One clergyman offered to take twelve ser- mons per mouth, ami the tiller was ac cepted. A Curious Sbtry uhoiil Itazaiuc. A story eomeu from France about Ba- saine, that has painful interest, and which, if told before in the United States, has escaped our nc tice. It will be roealled that Bazuinc married the niece of Pedrussa, elected president of Mexico in 1K28, Miss Do I»a Pena. The Emperor Maximilian wished to make tho bride a preseut; so he placed in the bridal basket a deed for a splendid palace in Mexico, whieli was form- erly used for the French Embassy. Maximilian tol«l Bazaiue t hat if he left Mexico aud wanted to get rid of the house, he should be allowed 700,000 francs, or $140,000, for it. The Mar- shal left the country, but it is sai«l refused to take this money, although it was tendered him. Subsequently Lo- l>ez, win) betrayed Maximilian to Pope Rctiion for Jaurez received this house as the price of his treachery. No won- der that the Mexicans row eall this buihliug 4,thc house of blood.”—X Y. Time*1. Beer in Ilosto 1. Boston Corrcsj'ouilcnce of the Sew York World It was found necessary, iu the inter- est of the foreign bands, to relax the stringent liquor law, whkh forbids the sale of lager beer. An appalling concerted howl went up from every band when they discovered that beer was prohibited. For a mo- ment the success of the jt.bilee was im- perilled. I11 vain the city lathers poured out champagne; in vain Lis Honor lav- ished the refreshing eloquence of his nature upon them; in vain General Banks referred, with tears in his eyes, to the bonds of universal brotherhood. “Boer first and universal brotherhood afterwards,” was the ndiguant re sponso. At last the stern moral nature of Boston gave way, and a brewer’s wagon was allowed to leave its refresh- ing load at the Coliseui 1 only. The consequeuce is, that lagt r can now be had in Boston only at ihe Coliseum. This is the last and greatest concession of New England morality to the dan- gerous spirit of Gilmoreism which is springing up here. Atlantic Cubic Telegraph I.iue. At preseut there are ‘.liree Atlantic cables working—two belonging to the Anglo American Company laid lx tween Valencia, Ireland, and H'.'art’sContent, Newfoundland, whence the messages come to all parts of the country by the air Hues. The French eon.pany have one Atlantic cable fr«*m Bred, France, to St. Pierre, and from St. Pierre to Dux- biatv, Mast>. The French Atlantic cable company, with the consent of the Anglo Amer- ican and New York, New fouudland and London telegraph companies, is about to lay another Atlantic cable from jand’s End, England, to New York. The cable will touch at Halifax, N«*va Scotia, ami be landed cn the south shore of Long Island. Thence it will be brought underground to the foot of Broadway, Brooklyn, and across the East river. Port nil Prince Uinnharileil by a (Jerimin Fleet. The German fleet arrived at Port au Prince a week ag«». The Commander reports that the fleet bombarded the town of Port au Pnneo for several hours, and boarded aud captured the Haytiuu fleet. These acts were comm it ted in eonse- quenco of the Haytiuu Government huving refused to pay the indemnity due the German merchants of Hayti for interfering with their commerce and levying forced loaus during the revolution. The Havtian Government paid the German Commander $15,000 ou ac- count of the claim, aud the fleet then withdrew. Very Though iful.

Gypscm exists in inexhaustible quan- tities in Western Texas. The San An- tonia Herald says that within a few miles of San Antonio, at the head of the Calaveras and neighboring creeks, it abounds,and that it could be brought to that city at a trifling cost. A considerable nse has lately taken place in the price o4paper in England. Some of the Loudon newspapers are now paying as much as $2,000 a week for paper m-re than they were paying in February. The rise is attributed to a combination among a large uumbei of paper-mskers. Plymouth Chtoch, Cleveland, has sold its chapel and grounds to a medi- cal college, for $20,000. The congrega- tion has made up an additional sub- scription of $40,000, and a new cburcli will be built on the corner of Prospect and Perry streets, the lot being 100 by 200 feet, A Niagara Falls correspondent has sj>ent some time in classifying the ar- rivals for last season, which numbered 41,975; New York heads the list with 11,978; Illinois shows 1,490; the Brit- ish Provinces, 1,565; Europe, 1,100; the Orient, 105, and Alrica, 4. Somebody has found a curious knife, bone-handled, onc-bladed, with a very stiff spring, which l>ears the impress 1760—making it 112 years old.
