sued the following telegrams from
Gen. Wolsely announcing that the
fall of Khartouin took place January
26th. He says Col. Wilson arrived
at Khartoum on - January 28th, and
was greatly surprised to find that the
enemy were in possession of that
place. He ini mediately started on
lis "return -down the river, and pro
ceeded under a heavy Jfire from the
rebels. When some miles below shu
blaka cataract, Col. Wilson's steam
ers were wrecked, blit he and his
whole partly manage to-reach Aan is
land in safety where they are secure.
A steamer has gone to bring them
back to the British camp near Me
temneh. "Gen. Wolsely says he has
no information regarding the fate of
Gen. Gordon, aud does not know
whether he is dead or aHe.

, Cost of Drinkixq. Some years
ago; says Pomeroy's Democrat, we
had in our employ a roan who seve
ral times a day ran'out of the office
to buy a drink 6f whisky. Every
time he went out the cashier was in
structed to dropteu cents into a draw
er to our credit. At vthe end of 17
months the man who had gone out so
often had drank himself out of a good
situation : and the drawer, when
opened, was found to contain $490,
which we loaned! to a young man at
seven per "centj interest. He used it
to purchase a set of tinner's tools. On
the 16th of February 1876, he re
turned it to us with interest, saying
in his letter that he had a wife, two
children and property worth $500.
The other fellow is a bummer hunt

An exchange savs that Sir Walter
Raleigh was imprisoned for twelve
years (1005 17) in a small and cloomv
cell, ten feet by eight feet, in the White
lower? That is an error. Sir Walter's
confinement in the Tower was more of
a residence there than imprisonment.
He had free access to the adjoining
garden where he erected a laboratory,
assayed metals and delved in chemicals.
In the Tower he had with him his wife
and family, his servants and even Indi-
aujo Ajiuiii yj uumi. vuce w uen ior some
cause his wife was required to leave the
Tower and reside elsewhere, he request

the expense he would be at to maintain

That much is clear. But, without
knowing anything about railroad man

firm that neither railroads nor other
