The interest exhibited in thenttempt to
connect President Grant with Fiek, Gould
and Cm bin, in the gold conspiracy, has
somewhat subsided, hut it at ill remains
the subject of general comment. It bus
been ascertained that the only basis for
the alleged complicity of the President is
the fact that when he sold his house in
this city to Gen. Sherman, he gave Airs.

Mis. Gritnt placed the money in his

There ''has been for some-lime n slight
misunderstanding between a certain M.
D , and njviiight of the goose, and last
Tuesday a challenge was sent by the M.
D. and immediately accepted. Seconds
were choseu ami weapons procured, which
were nn old musket and a cigar-case (in
tended to represent a pistol ) The gen
tlemen, with their friends, repaired to a
secluded spot near the heights, and the
principals drew for the choice of weapons,
and the M. D. drew the musket. The
ground was stepped off, the combatants
placed in position, and the word given to
fire. A tremendous explosion of1 the old
musket followed, and tho tailor rolled over
on tho ground, gave a few frantic kicks,
and all was over with him..
The Doctor's second congratulated him
on having killed his man, and they left
the field, and coming to town', repaired to

over, and while the M. D. was telling to

armed with a cigar-case.

being a gentleman," said the teacher,
"but a bail temper does. Now, William,
if you want to be a gentleman you mu t
be a gentle boy." '

1'rom St. Petkb to Pics IX. there
have been 293 Popes. Of these 31 are
considered anti-Popes, or usurpers, in the

repute of martyrs ; the other 35 also met
violent deaths : 18 poisoned, 4 assassinated

strangled ; Leo III. and John XIV. were
mutilated, and the latter starved to death,
as also Gregokt XVI.; Luke was stoned,
