. DEHIEO TnK WRIT.
A decision was rendered by the United
States Supreme Court, upon applicatiot
rvf Willium M. Henry, of South Caro
lina, or a writ of habeas corpus. Henry
is now a prisoner in Albany penitentiary,
serving out a second sentence for the of-
tense oi using the mails to carry out a
scticme of fraud, an offense of which
ho was found guilty in the United States
dii'rict court for the western district of
S itith Carolina on the 11th of Septem
ber, 1330. The prisoner maintains that
under section 5,440 of the licvid Stat
utes he could not be legally cnudemucd
to more than one terra of imprisonment
for domes committed within tho same
sit calendiir months, and that be has
already served out one term, and should
le released, t This court, however, holds
that hia series of fraudulent acts did not
constitute one continuous' offense, for
which he could receive only one pun-if-hment,
and that the court had legal
power to sentence him to two or three
consecutifa terms of imprisonment, for
two or throe separate acts of fraud. The
m ilion for a rule to allow causa why the
writ of habeas corpus should not it8ue,

A MENTAL WItECK.
Senator Jones, of Florida, still in De
troit, Mich., is fast becoming a mental
wreck. He is in debt to nearly all the
hotels and restaurants, and has been
obliged to seek humble quartern and is
buffering for something to eat.
If the fiiendsof Prince Victor Nap i
Icon are to be believed, the rbanc -f
that gentleman's enjoying what he ami
they deem Io be his right', mc im-rca-iii-.-daily,
and the time i not far distant
when a Napoleon will be again at tin
head of French affairs. His little vain
at Brussels is the report of o many of the
discontented and ambitious I but it is not
unlikely that the Belgian govern met t
will forestall the French n m-instnttic
and (peedily request him to relieve llmt
government of his .presence. Prime
Victor is very popular with the Belgians
who pay him manv flatten ing attention,
and profess their belief that iu him the
Napoleon dynasty will be revived.

Isabella Rooney, the only white womtn

The murder for which she was convicted
was performed by Willi Hudson, a ball

aecessoni. The murdered man wn
Marion Millirous, and the trouble that
eventually led to the killing arose ovel

ilk obtained water. Willi Hudson,
th murderer, was hanged, Mr. R tonej

The Minneapolis Journal says: "I
suppose we have had tho greatest trip
that ever a dramatic company had," re
marked jolly Charles H. Yale, the man
ager of the '"Devil's Auctiou," the other
evening. "We hnve been within four
hundred miles of Alaska. In half of tho
places we did uot have any theatre to
play in. At Spokane Falls they built a
theatre for us to piny in in twenty-four
hours. Fact They wanted us to show
there and we were willing, but they
did not even have a skating rink that
they could tit up. But thoy said that
if we would come they would have a
place for us, and they did. Thoy erect
ed a rihiii out of rough pino boards,
and placed a canvas top over it. The
place was packed. Cowboys came in
1nivea like the cnttlo thev take care of.
I remember ono fellow who could not
get a seat He kicked for a while and
thra went out and got a box. When
ever he would get in any one' way ho
would move. The people out there went
crazv oxer the show, and the ballet girbi
uei to get about four offer of marmgo
at each towu. m
"But it wa at Anaconda in Mon
tana, that we had the greatest experi
ence tliat the show ever had . We made
arrangement to play at the Grand
Opera. House. When we got there I
law the most dilapidated old larn that
ever waa. A good able-bodied! ophyr
would have blown it into tho middle of
next week. The wtago waa on trestles,
and every time any one placed hi foot
on it the whole building ahook. There
was no curtain, snd not a dressing room.
Just think of that for a place to present
mr show in. That waa tho Grand
(hiera House. There wa not a man in
the town thnt could plav a muiel in
strument. Tho natives bad never heard
of an orchestra. We only had a few
hour to prepare for tho rIiow. We built
onr own dressing rooms, patched up
some munlin fr a curtain, bunted tip
an old piano, and then atartcd in. The
man who plnvs Count l'ortnno would
apeak a few lines and then put on hi
tie-u.sers and go down and play for the
ballet. We had about a dozen men
under the atage liracing it up w ith their
