geon General L. W. Read, the
leading physician of Norristowu,
wa,- -irnmoned in a case yesterday
the p .: dlel of which he has never
eiicc; ..din all his wide range
of pi o . The story is a singu
lar one an '; ..il'ords abundant scope
for speejl a' ion.
S x weeks ago there came to
Norristowu a strange gentleman of
good address, who introduced him-'
sell to Pinkerton Kail and rented
that gent Ionian's store at No. 25
Kast Main street. The front por
tion the store he stocked with
notions and toys, aud did a modest
hut s ic v--fu! business. The nien

yesterday morning. when the
stranger knocked at the door lead

answered, the knock, and was sur
prised to hear the man a-k, Whore

of his whereabouts, but failing to
do so Ir. Read was .summoned, and
upon his arrival, the stranger, with
every appearance of a strictly
rational being, related the follow
lug story : "Doctor. 1 have just

that they will -i.ppotf liirn for

to .-appose r' ' Mr. Kandail will in
the lutUio ::.o. h.ui in the p i-t
defer to the u i .. : of tin- majority
ot ihr parts in which lie cl un.s
membership, and it is bur natural
that they should wish to -co him
relegated to a po-i'iuii in which he
will be loss able to thwart the par
ty's poi-ev. '1 In- small faction he
led m the last C' digress, by its arro
gant and uncompromising course
detnorali.cd the House, and by de
feating tho cheii.-hi'd aims of the
Democracy to a certain extent
discredited :: before the country.
There is no good reason why the
larger pai t of the Democratic rep
resentation in the i.ext House
shotild not bo equ illy determined
to hifve its wnv. It certainly has a
better title to it.
see the nee. ssity of revenue reform
ire not of a temper to enforce their j
convictions, it need surprise no
one if there are some lew who have
the stomach to light. Should this1
prove to be the case, the Randall-'
ites iu the next House will be con-'
fronted by a resolute band of tariff ;
reformers, and there would be a.
division of the Democratic repre
sentation into throe groups the;
Randallite-, acting on revenue
questions vi ili Cue Republicans. 1
and forming what in France would
be called the right; the tariff re-1
formers, equally bent upon thej
assertion of their principles, consti-'
tuting the lef t, w hile the remainder, .
embracing tho more conservative,
timid or indifferent members ot the
party would constitute the centre, i
Such is the division which Mr. j
Randall, by hi5 reckless disregard I
of t'ne wishes of others, threatens!
to bring about. It is necessary, to!
escape this result, that submission i
to the will of the majority, as ascer- j
tained in caucus, be made the test j
of party membership. If the Ran-1
dallites are un willing to recognize!
the right of the majority to impose!
a tesf, there is no alternative, it
now begins to be thought, but for,
the majority to decline to attempt;
to organize the Fiftieth Congress.
If it cannot Ic organized with a
view to the carrying out ol Demo
cratic ideas, it is questioned
whether it is for the good of thej
pai i , looKiug iu us liiigei luici -1
ests, to be only nominally in control ;
of the IIou.se, the actual control j
being in the hands of the Republi-1
cans, assisted by a few protection-;
ist Democrats. Only defeat and;
disgrace, it is held, can atteud an
effort to legislate for the country in ;
a Democratic sense in the face of
such a coalition. Should Mr. Car-,
lisle gne the pledge said to have
been asked for by the more reso-
lute tariff reformer, it will then
become apparent whether Demo
cratic protectionists in the House
care more for their party or their i
principles. J'altiin-'-n Sua.
A Nkw Beau Story. The'
severe winter in Montana has fur-:
nished Western men with a fresh,
supply of bear stories, some tragic, :
some comic. A miner in the Rocky
mountains describes an encounter
with a titteen-huudred-pound griz
zly, which shows that discretion is.
sometimes the better part of valor.
He came upon the monster sudden
ly on turning a sharp corner at the
bottom ut a deep ravine.
-This giant looked at me in utter
astonishment. He was not more
than ten feet distant, and I had
not a sii.gio weapon of defence,

credited by M. de Staal, the Russian
ambaesador here, w ho saya he has re
ceived no telegram in relation to such
an attempt, and this he considers sufTi
cientevider.ee that the rtport is un
founded. A service in the Russian chapel today
in oemmemoration of the Czar's acces
sion to the throne crowded the place
with diplomats in full uniform, con
spicuous above all being the members
of the Russian embassy. After the ser
vice the members of the Russian em
t&sey were congratulated by all present
that the rumor of the attempt on the
life of the Czar was unfounded.
In the House of Commons this after
noon Sir James Fergusson. parliamen
tary secretary to the foreign office,
stated that the government had been
informed that some persons with ex- ;
plosives in their possession . had been
arrested in St. Petersburg yesterday on j
the route which tho Czar was to have i
taken to attend a service which was to ;
have been performed in commemora
tion of the late Czar, it being the anni- ,
versary of his dfath. Sir James Fer
gusson said he was glad to be able to
announce that no attack was made on
Dispatches from Frankfort, Berlin
and Vienna say that the bourses at those
places were weak today in consequence
of the rumors that an attempt had been
made to kill the Czar.
It hag transpired that the plot against
the Crar was widespread and serious,
and that numerous arrests have been
made in connection therewith.

Polish anarchists of Paris yesterday

A Lest Child in the Denniead Case,
New Brunswick, N. J., March 14.
Thomas Henry Ayres, the heir of Wm.
Henry Ayres and Cornelia Goodfellow
Ayres, (afterwards Denmcad.) who was !
stolen from his mother by his father in j
1S44 when four years old, and had
never been seen since by his relatives,
has been found at Sunnydale, Sedgwick (
county, Kansas. He has been tele
graphed for, and will shortly arrive '
here to aid in unraveling the Denmead j
mystery. At the coroner's inquest to- j
day Mary Ann Brundage, the only i
sister of the dead woman Cornelia, told !
the 6tory of her marriage, of her hus- '
band's desertion of her, the stealing of !
her child, and the shame afterwards!
brought upon her by her sisteCs rela
tions with the Denmeads. She asserts i
that Cornelia and Samuel Denmead be-
gan to live together in 1857. although
no marriage ceremony had been per- j
formed. The Day family mentioned 1
in one of the papers is the '"Daly'' or
Dally"' family of Woodridge Tha ;
family is related to the Ayreses.
John F. Babcock. the veteran editor 1
and publisher of this city, says that in I
the early fifties Mrs. Ayres spent i
through him in advertising for her lost
child in Western and Southwestern
newspapers a great deal of mcuey. cf
which she always had plenty.

Tha Latest Sailway Horror,
Boston, March 15. The awful catas
trophe on the Boston and Providence
railroad yesterday is still the topic of
conversation in the household, upon th
street and in places of business, and the
same remark is upon everybody 's lips,
"it fearful," "its terrible. "
The saddest scenes of all are those
which present themselves in and about
the residences, where lie the mutilated
remains of loved ones. Crepe is hang
ing from many door knobs in Dedham,
Roslindale and West Roxbury.
Today the people seem to realize the
horror connected with the catastrophe
more than they did yesterday. Then
all wa3 bustle and excitement. Today
their sympathy i3 unbounded, and the
horrid reality seems to make itself more
apparent to them.
The scenes this morning about the
wreck was animated, although the air
was raw and cold and a snow storm
prevailed, several hundred people put
in their appearance to take a look at
what remained of the wreck. At 7
o'clock there were certainly 500 people
at the scene, and the number steadily
increased to thousands up to noon.
Among the multitude were hundreds
of women. Hundreds of relic-hunters,
men, women and children, could be
seen carrying away pieces of the broken
cars. A large. squad of policemen is on
hand. A band of workmen are busy
removing the debris. It i9 probable
that the list will not be increased, for
all the injured at the hospitals were re
ported this morning as having passed a
comfortable night and are likely to re
cover. Even those considered most
seriously hurt are doing well, but still
all danger is not yet removed.

broke cut at the Johnson warehouse at
1.30 o'clock this morning. There was a
high wind and the flames spread rapidly
ia a southward direction, jumping
across Commercial Avenue and burn
ing the houses on both sidestif the street
for some distance. Half of the business
part of the town was destroyed.
Twenty-three firms were burned out.
The loss is about 8100.000. In
surance scarcely one-half. The general
belief id that it is the work of incen-diiri-s.
Great excitement prevails.

I-I- Cou.d Not Tell a Lia.
The most delicate and the most ex-

that we have ever seen is now to be re
'ooried. Yesterday morning a careless

second story of a building on which he j
was at wors. Leaning oer mc
and elanciL'C downward, he discovered
a respecmble citizen, with his silk hat
scrouched over his eyes and ears, rising
from a recumbent posture. The mason,
in tones of somo apjprc-hension, asked :
-bud that brick hit any one down
ih. re.-" The citizen replied with con--idt
r ible wrath: "Yes. 6ir, it did : it hit
me." "That's right.'' exclaimed the
mason, in tones of undisguised admira

sure tho people of the South that this
company means business in its broad -e-t
sense. We have taken but One posi
tion from the start, and will maintain
it. We have all the funds in hand
necessary to accomplish our purpose,
and have no favors to ask on that soore.
The company propose to build mills at
the most desirable point as fast as1 the
machinery can be turned out, and to go
into the business on a purely legitimate
mercantile basis, and develop it as it
should be. '"
