VIOLENT STORM. A Furious Wind Arises When Least Expected, and Docs Consid erable Damage in the City. Two Pleasure-Boats Laden with Peo ple Upset in the Lake Oppo site Lincoln Park. Houses Struck by Lightning, Chimneys Blown Down, Trees Uprooted, and Awnings and Signs Carried Away. A few minutes after 6 o'clock last evening, when tho sky was apparently calm and serene, and outdoor Ohioago was enjoying itself with 'walks, and rides, and cunning searches after sur reptitious lager, a thunder-storm, accompanied t>ya rain fall of remarkable violence, burst over the city from tho south, aud in an incredibly short apace of timo wrought a groat deal of mischief. iTho rumbling of distant thunder and faint elec tric flashes preceded tho advance of tho storm by Vn few seconds, but, when tho wind had reached greatest height, tho peals wore loud, fro* ypiont, and startling, aud tho lightning blinding its vividness. The streets over which the - storm passed woro changed, as by magic from dust to mud and water, and were speedily deserted by tho goyly-drcssed •crowds which thronged them. - Tho extremely "violent wind lasted but a few minutes, hut in 'that short tlmo damage amounting to thousands •of dollars was dono. An unusual phenomenon ‘occurred in connection with the storm, and was 'observed by a gentleman from his residence in tho West Division, about half p. mile from tho Yivor. Ho first noticed the rain driving from a little oast of south. Suddenly tho wind veered ’ with groat rapidity, ond blow for » tow seconds from tho south at tho rate of nearly seventy-five miles an hour. 3t then veered through tho west to a little oast •of north, traversing at least five-eighths of tho •'circumference of a circle in a tlmo estimated to >t>o not moro than fifteen seconds. This showed pthat tho storm-centre was traveling from south west to northeast, and passed perhaps but a few jards to tho northwest of where tho observer fetood. Tho casualties reported thus far aro os fol lows: A largo derrick standing in front of No. IG3 aWadlson street was blown down, and in its fall it crushed through a lemonade-stand, leaving aiot one board above another. Two or threo persons who wore running along tbo street, with forms bowed to the blast, narrowly escaped tho fate of tho lemonade-stand. Another derrick at the corner of Erie and North Oiark streets was toppled over by the forco t>f the wind, and broke in two from its own weight. A street-car and several pedestrians woro just close enough to tho falling mass to xnies it. A portion of the sidewalk at the northwest •corner of Erie and Clark streets was lifted up tmd tho planks scattered around without regard to picturesque effect. North Clark street, and every other business •street in tho city for that matter, presents an ever changing view of mined awnings aud over turned sidewalk signs. Several windows at the comers of Hoisted and Madison and Green and Madison woro blown in, and the awnings that shaded them carried off. Badly twisted awning irons demonstrate tho -force of tbo wind which struck those points. Tbo storm is reported to have boon furious on Chicago avenue, between Sangamon and Green -streets. A horse and buggy in that vicinity was blown over. Tbo vehicle was demolished, and tbo occupants, a man aud woman, were severely injured. A small frame house on tho corner of Chicago avenue and Fifth street was struck by a piece of sidewalk which had boon tom up near I)s’, and a portion of the upper story was crushed through. A woman inside waa struck by a piece of timber and stunned. A number of fino trees at tho north end of Lincoln Park woro uprooted and badly broken. It is feared that their term of usefulness has expired. A tall chimney on St. Caroline’s Court Hotel was blown into tho court in the southern end of tho building, and the largo awning which covered tho court and protected guests of tho house from tho weather while they played oroquot or lounged around on tho grass plats, was carried off, no ono knows whither. Tho streets in tho vicinity •of tbo hotel wore Uttered with limbs ana branches of trees. The now Swedish Church (tho Rev. 0. j Knowles, pastor) on Sedgwick street, near Chi- , cago avenue, was struck by lightning during tho storm. The electric fluid entered the building r.t the north gable, and ran along the comb of tho roof to the south gable, whore tho current teemed to separate and run down to the ground by tho two corners. Tho material of tho build ing is wood, and tho main timbers wore not much damaged. Tho whole edifice was moved about six inches, and almost turned over, and had to bo propped up. Tho society expected to occupy it within a few weeks. The damage to the building, although not very serious, will do lav the time of occupying somewhat. The lightning also struck tho roar ond of Mc- Cormick's Hall, which is located on Clark street, near Kinzio. A small portion of tho roof was ripped up, and several yards of brick knocked out of tho gable, making a hole which let in a considerable quantity of water. Tho damage can bo easily repaired. Tho storm manifested itself most disastrously in tho uprooting of largo shade trees, which have boon planted since tho fire. In tho North Division, in the-vicinities of Dearborn and Mich igan streets, and Market and Ohio streets, and along Cass street, about twenty large trees, which wore planted early in tho spring, and wore stayed up by wire, wore uprooted, many of them being broken into splinters, and made only fit for ure-wood. On tho same streets telegraph- Eolos were blown down, while others wore struck y lightning. In tho wake of the storm, on tho North Bide, there is much devastation, although few bouses wore seriously injured. Signs and awnings lay scattered everywhere. Sidewalks ■wore overturned and torn to pieces. At the cor ner of Markot and Ohio streets, ton feet of side walk was carried from one side of tho street to the other and placed standing, at tho squaroat EobUlou possible, against tho front of a oottago ouso. In tho West Division tho most serious damage done was tho blowing down of about thirty shade trees on Ashland avenue, mostly located between Madison and Jackson streets. Those trees wore sot out as an experiment by Mr. S. J. Walker and others, being of a very largo size at the time they wore transplanted. They ornamented tbo avenue very much, and it will present a hare and naked appearance without them. Fortunately there are not many of them so damaged hut that they can bo replanted with a good prospect of saving them. Last evening tho storm had hardly subsided when men wore at work re planting and straightening them. A chimney on a small cottage house on Honoro street was blown down, hut except making a small hole in tbo roof no other damage was done. The most serious accident of all, however, was tho capsizing of two pleasure yachts laden with people, which were sailing in the lake op posite Lincoln Park and about a mile from the shore. One boat contained fourteen persons, and tho other nine. They were moving alouf •with a light brooao in comparatively plach water, when all at once a terribly violent gust struck them, and turned them completely over on their side. Tho ocoupants wore thrown into the water, bat owing to tho fact that tho wind was so violent, and of such short duration, that tho water did not become rough, they suc ceeded in crawling on tho boats, and In a short time wore rescued by people from the shore. Hod there been anything like a heavy soa, several of them would have lost their uvea without doubt. Tho accident was witnessed by hundreds of pleasure-seekers in tho park, and|the most in tense excitement was tho result. The names of those composing the boating parties could not be ascertained owing to tho confusion which prevailed when they wore brought ashorbr-’ Photographing a Kiss* In the neighborhood of Ohifaelhnrst, the other d&T. an enamored pair wore walking pleasantly •tong, qnlto unconscious of thotr surroundings, and more particularly of tho fact that an Itln oranfc.photographor had taken up his position, surroumlodby an interesting crowd. As ibo swain and tho m&tdon took (heir way, what more natural than that tho former should imprint a chaste salute on tho panting Ups of his fair com* panion ? What more annoying than that the camera should have seised « them in the act and rendered it immortal ? Tho hapless couple be come aware of tho foot from tho loud outburst of laughter which ran through tho assemblage as tho plate was hold up, and tho girl at first stormed and. threatened ; but. subsiding into a more reasonable mood, oifored to purchase tho negative, lint the photographer was inexorable. Ho was willing to soil any number of copies, but insisted upon retaining tuo original. HYDE PAIIK. Pleating of tlio Truatooo and Xrnunno lion of u Quantity of Aoutlno Hunt* nous* At tho mooting of tho Hyde Park Trustees on Saturday afternoon, tho Committee on Streets wore authorized on tho petition of Col.

AN IMPOSING CEREMONY, Laying* tho Corner-Stone of the Now Catholic Church of the Sacred llcaru The corner-stone of tho new Boman Catholic church, to bo known aa tho Sacred Heart, was laid, Jostorday, with imposing ceremonies. Tho eito la located at tho intoraoction of Luko and John streets. It will bo 170 feet long and 70 foot wide, a commodious and substantial edi fice. Tho Torioua Catholic benevolent and other Societies assembled at S}* Patrick’s Church and marched thenco with banners and music to tho econo of tbo ceremonies. An adequate police force, under command of Sergeant O'Donnell, kept the way clear for tho procession, which was long and respectable.

Joseph Molitore, pastor of tho Bohemian congregation; tho Bov. P. J. Con way, pastor of St. Patrick’s ; tho Bov. Father Bouonbaur, of St. Francis’; John J. Fitzgibhou, editor of tho Western Catholic, etc. An immense concourse of people, numbering probably 10,000, bad assembled about i o’clock in tho streets leading to tho church. The first story of tho building is already built. Flooring was laid around tho sides for the procession of tho officiating clergy men. There wore a largo number of acolytes and priests preceding Bishop Foloy, who was ar rayed in full canonicals. Tno ceremony of con secrating tho building and of laying tho corner stone was conduotedln tho Impressive form pro scribed in tho ritual of tho Boman Catholic Church. It was intended that there should bo preaching in Gorman, Bohemian, and English, tho Bov. Mr. Bosonbaur intending to sneak in Gorman, tho Bov. Joseph Mlitoro in Bohemian, and tho Bov. Mr. MoMullin in English. Dr. MoMullin began by saying that,by tho cer emony just performed, that snot had boon sot apart from tho other portion of the earth's sur face, and had been dedicated to tho service of the Deity. It was more saorod than the burn ing bush, mom sacred thou Zion’s hill. At this point a terrific clap of thundor re sounded through tho heaven, and the rain came down in torrents, dispersing tho crowd, which soattorod In ail directions to seek shelter. The storm put a veto on further speaking, and tho proceedings terminated. In connection with this church it is worth noting that Mr. 'Walsh, an Irish citizen, at one time owned forty acres of land in that vicinity. Ho apportioned ft into blocks and called four of tho streets after four of his sous, Matthew. Mark, Duke, and John, who had been named after four of the Disciples. Another street was called Bridget, after his wife, and another Walsh, after tho entire family. Funeral of Horace F. Clark. New York, Juno 22. —The funeral services over tho remains of Horace F.

An Intoxicated Man Shoots Ills Neighbor with a Musket* What a Drunkard Will Sometimes Do to Avenge the Wrongs o( His Wile. Another Bloody Encounter, pinoo tho Sunday liquor law wont into opera tion, there has boon a dearth of criminal nows at tho police-stations on that day. Yesterday was an exception to this observation. There wore two bloody encounters, both of which had tholr origin in liquor-drinking. TUB MOST SERIOUS encounter occurred between two men in the North Division. If tho victim of tho assault should die, a most heinous znurdor will have boon committed. William Dennison and John Euouso aro both possessed of wives whose pas sions aro not of tho most elovotod character.' Tho worst of it is, that then husbands will champion tholr respective wives. Tho result has boon that' a serious encounter has occurred, which may result in the death of ouo of the parties. Last week TUB WOMEN QUARRELED, . As a result of tboir quarrel, tboir husbands became enraged at one another. They njet sev eral times, but a look of courage prevented them from inflicting any serious injuries. Of course, they threatened one another with the most se rious things. But, until lost evening, tboir feel ings prompted them to inflict no serious injuries upon each other. YESTERDAY EVENING at 6 o’clock Enouso initiated himself Into a ter rible drunk. At his homo he exhibited tbo bru tality whloh the liquor ho had drank bod re vived. Ho therefore was stimulated to do a most desperate deed. To accomplish it ho sc oured an old musket, and, with a deliberation moat remarkable in a drunken man, ho loaded it with slugs. Both, men live at 272 Noble street, unease occupies rooms in tbo front, and Dennison rooms in tbo rear, Knouse wont outside, and walked around the house, with tho rtuskot’in his hand. Ho was very much intoxicated at the time, and did not, from his actions know what ho was doing. Ho finally ro-onterod tho house. Ho saw Denni son standing against tho Jam of tho door, which loads into tho book-yard. A window intervened between tho men, but Knouse, being very drunk, did not allow this to dissuade him FROM DIB FURFOBB. no accordingly fired upon his enemy, and doubtless felt himself, as many men before him bavo done, a hero, because he was fighting for a woman, Dennison fell at the first charge, and Knouso ran away. The slugs entered Denni son's head aud shoulders, and when ho was picked up, ho was, apparently, dead. Ho was lifted np and earned into the house. It was some time before he could bo aroused, and but for tbo timely arrival of physicians, would bavo died. Drs. Lour and Nicoli arrived at tbo house soon after the MURDEROUS ASSAULT was made. It was discovered that both eyes woro destroyed, a slung having penetrated both of the pupils. Sovon slugs woro removed from tho faco. They had not imbedded themselves deeply, and woro easily taken out. But several of tho shots had, apparently, entered through tho skull-bone, and Had lodged In tbo brain, pro ducing wounds which, tho physicians believe, will terminate fatally &i no distant period. Last night at 11 o’clock a Tribune reporter called at tho house whore TUB PATAU APFRAT occurred* Nothing additional could be learned. Both families appear to bo in fault. They have been constantly fighting, mainly because they have boon constantly drinking. They live in such ol&se proximity that if they had any in clination to fight with ono another they could not well avoid it. Tbo house whore the fatal shooting was done, is a two-story brown frame tenement building. Tho dwellers therein are of a low order of humanity. Dennison, tho wound ed man, is a moulder by trade. He is HOT A DESPERADO, but his character is that of a reckless drunkard. Knouso is much worse than he is. He has been for a long time on intimate relations with tho police. Ho has frequently threatened to kill Dennison if he did not mind his bwn business. Dennison, however, did not molest him, and, indeed, paid no attention to his throats. Dennison is a moulder, and hag a wife and four children. Even if ho should not die, his condition is distressing, as his sight is forever destroyed. Knouso, his as sailant, is a Frenchman, and hoe a wife and one child. Ho is a cooper by trade, but has not been very regularly employed, because of UIB IHTEMPERATE IXADITT. Ho was, booh attor the affray, arrested by Of* ficcr Dalton. Ho attempted to got away, and had hid himeelf m hta house. Ho was found found under a table in his kitchen. He at first resisted arrest, and ap peared much concomod about the condition of ais victim. Ho was lodged in the Chicago Avenue Station, and will have a preliminary ex amination this morning. ANOTHER ENCOUNTER. The other bloody encounter occurred in a Bfilooa at the corner of Milwaukee avenue and Union street, at 0 o'clock last night. Two men named Henry Tripp ond Mike Casey were dis puting about tbo relative esteem in which they wore held by a certain young girl. They wore DOTH INTOXICATED, and did not know, therefore, what they were do-, ing. Casey said something which Tripp regard ed os insulting, whereupon tho latter struck Casey with a club upon tho head. Casey was rendered insensible. Tripp ran away, but was found at 11 o'clock last night under a lounge In a furniture store where ho is a dork, at No. 118 Union street. Ho was almost in a NUDE CONDITION, and acted like a crazy man. lie was locked up at tho Madison street station. Two physicians attended Casey. His wounds are very painful, hut not necessarily fatal. THE CITY IN BRIEF. The Chicago & Alton Railroad brought 87,000 head of Texas cattle from Kansas City last year. On Saturday night a brakeman named John Roby, in tho employ of tho Michigan Southern Railroad, was killed at Twelfth street, by being run over by the cars. Ho lived at No. 1248 State street, whore bo loaves a wife and one' child. Tbo body was takon to tho Morgue. The dead body of a man was found in tho lake, at the foot of Lake street, yesterday morn ing. It is behoved to have some connection with tho boat which was found in the same place on Thursday, and which contained several articles of wearing apparel and & dinner-basket. The body was removed to tho Morgue. Mr. John Hart, who has boon soling as stage manager of tbo Comiquo Combination, now playing at tbo Academy of Music, loft for Now Vork, yesterday afternoon, thoroughly disgusted with the indifference of tbo West Bide people, who persistently refuse to patronize one of tbo best and most respectable variety entertain monts over offered ro tho city. Mr. Hart said the next time ho would como "West ho would play in Chicago, which, according to his notion, lies oast ofMauisou street bridge and south of tho main branch of the river. A patient at tho County Hospital, named John Calvin, committed suicide on Saturday evening by taking laudanum. Being in a con valescent condition, ho was permitted, at his own request, to go out ou Saturday evening. It is supposed ho procured the poison at that time. He loft no reason for taking the liquid,* but had appeared very morose and sullen over since ho was admitted to tho hospital. It is be lieved he had no relations residing in tho city. Tho Coroner will hold an inquest to-day at the Morgue. On Saturday afternoon, at tho Brighton House, a pigeon match was shot between J. P. Boberlson, tho Scottish champion, and Q. Sulli van, the prairie hunter. The contest was a trap-ond-handlo one, each man shooting at forty tame birds, under tho new rules of tho Kennl cott Club, for a stake of S2OO. At tho com mencement the betting was in favor of Sullivan, but tho result of this match did not Justify tho confidence reposed in his ability to win. Bob ortuou came off victorious by a score of 83 to 20, and five of his birds fell dead out of bounds. The match was witnessed by a largo number of people. i Messrs. Moran & Manning, proprietors and and managers of tho minstrel party which closed a moderately successful season at Myers' Opera- House on Saturday night, have accepted an offer from Mr. Thomas Maguire, of Maguire's Opera- House, Ban Francisco, to play a four weeks' en gagement in that city. Tho terms are (heir own,—s2oo per week in gold each, and fare paid going and returning. This is about os large a salary as was over paid to a minstrel performer. Moran and Manning are Un-ton men in their Profession, and will undoubtedly become favor-. toe on tho Slope. In William the people of Chi cago have a sort of proprietary" Interest, ami it would please them Immensely to know that ho increases his bank-account and tho number of his friends every place ho goes to. • From dawn until noon, yesterday, tho track at Dexter Park was visited by . a largo number of gentlemen who own fast, horses and are ad mirers of tbs turf. Their object In going thoro atnuoh an early hour was to aoo tho trainers and slablo-mbn work the stock before tho heat of the day set in, which Is usually dono every morn ing, and always on Sunday. There was nothing about the performances of tho borsos yester day to warrant special mention, unless it. is that Mr. Fawcett's chestnut stall loh. Bashaw, Jr., trotted a full mllo for tho first time in two years, and made It without pressing In 2:80. Ills gait and general action Impressed those who hod soon him trot in his younger and bettor days very favorably. It Is confidently expected, if the injury to bis log, sustained in a race at Fleetwood Park some years ago, does not interfere with him again, that ho will equal hta beat time before tho oloso of the season. Borne time ago a gentleman of largo moans, and an ardent admirer of all that is fast in horses, was arrested by a police officer for rattling along Ashland avenue at a throe-minute gait or thereabouts, and rumor has it that ho was fined a respectable sum tho next day. It ’made him so mad that ho jumped into his wagon, and started off with a determination to find a place where ho oould speed hla horses to his heart’s content. Ho was successful in his search, and at tho present time, owing to his efforts and to tho efforts of other wealthy gen tlemen who joined him with their money and time, thoro Is one of the finest seven-eighth? of a mile track to bo found in tho West, in-aft ob scure quarter of the city, It is the continuation of West Washington street, from California ave nue to tho entrance of ■ Central Park, and thoro aro no residents to bo annoyed and no side streets to bo looked after. This will bo on Item of interest to owners of fast roadsters through out the city, A FIRE-BUG. He Is Stabbed While Resisting Arrest —But !■ Finally Captured. It seems that tho firo at No.. 402 Burnside street, on Saturday night, was followed by some rather peculiar, not to say exciting, experiences. Just previous to tho breaking oat of tho firo, a lady in an adjoining houso saw a boy, named Williams, whose reputation is of tho worst character, attempt to strike a match near tho corner of ono of tho hams which woro destroyed. Ho ran away whon sho asked him what ho was doing. Boon after, firo broko out in tho bams. Williams witnessed it. and at tho firo was aocostod by a man who said to him, "They say you sot this bam on fire.” Williams denied it, but soon after was soon to run away. Several persons wont in pursuit of him. When ono man got near him, Williams turned around and attempted to out him with a knife. Tho man who was in pursuit drew an ordinary pooket-knifo to dofond* himself with,’ and finally stabbed Williams se verely in the shoulder and side. Ho fell to tho ground, and was easily arrested. Hia wounds aro not serious. Ho was looked up in. tho Twelfth Street Station. Ho Is a young man 19 years old. and has long boon the terror of the neighborhood whore ho lives. Scalped. From the Ltatenicorth Times, June 10. We received a call yesterday from Jacob I. Large, a man who some months ago, woe at tacked and soalped on the plains near Fort

Dodge by a band of seven Indians, headed by Little Grow, the son of the famous Little Grow who was killed in 1861, in Minnesota. It seems that Mr. Largo, who has been a frontiersman nearly all his .life, having gone to Wisconsin in an early day of tho settlement of that State, and from thouoo to Minnesota, was tho identical man who killed the dreaded chief in one of his raids on tho white settlers near tho town of Hutchison, on the Grow River, in 1861, and was known and his life threatened by Little Crow’s son, who was with his father at the time of his death. It might be .well to add that tho body of tho big chief was boiled and his bones distribu ted to tho people of Minnesota as relics, his life having been a terror and a dread to all who lived in that section. Minnesota having lost all charms for the frontiersman, Largo camo to Kansas and stopped at Fort Dodge, from which point he roconuoitored tho surrounding country in search of a good claim, and while out one day he was overtaken by this band of Indians, who wore on a buffalo hunt, and recognized by Little Grow as the man who killed his father. Largo ran from them but was too slow of foot to escape; his leg was broken in two places, and his scalp taken from his eyebrow to the crown of his bead, and bo then loft on the prairie to die. Ho was picked up by a scouting party from tho Fort and taken in for treatment. His leg healed, but his hood is a fearful sight, and will be a long time healing, if it over does. Ono of his eyes hoe gone blind. As soon as he was able to walk, his anxiety to return homo started him on foot in that direction, and he arrived in Leavenworth yesterday, having walked by day and slept by night on the way. He hopes to receive aid hero to take him homo, and if he does not, says ho will “ walk it,” Telegraphic Drovitice* Prof. G. D. MoElroy has boon elected Presi dent of Adrian Gollego for tho ensuing year. Tug G. W. Farrar exploded her boiler at Port Huron yesterday. Tho captain and engineer aro reported badly scalded. Margaret Graff, a Gorman woman of Evans ville, aged 68 years, died on Saturday from tho effects of a fall down dollar about a week ago. Tho Maryland editorial excursionists arrived in St. Louis yesterday morning, and spent a quiet day. They will leave for Chicago this evening. Tho President of tho Chinese companies bos sent to Hong-Eong 8,000 circulars giving a full account of the Chinese troubles in California, to be distributed in tho cities of China. Tho dedication of tho Church of the Holy Gross, in Cincinnati, founded by the Paeacouot Fathers on Mount Adams, where tho Observa tory stood, was largely attended yesterday. Archbishop Purcell mode a slight allusion to tho speech of John Quinoy Adams in 1843, on the occasion of founding the Observatory. Isoao Frees. a resident of Wheeling, W. Ya., was shot by his wife on Friday night last. She first attacked him with a poker, and then with a fire-shovel, and he took thorn away from hor. She then drew a revolver and fired four shots, one of the balls striking him in tho breast, in flicting a .dangerous wound. Family difficulties the oause;' Sudden Change in the Color of Hair* Two sudden changes of the color of hair from black to white are reported in a foreign medical magazine. It appears that a physician of Ber lin, a strong, healthy, and less than middle-aged man, sent ms wife and one daughter to spend last summer at a watering-place. The day that ho expected a letter informing him of their arrival, there came one saying that his daughter had boon taken sick very suddenly, and was al ready dead. The shock was terrible, and in stantly his hair became entirely gray. Ho had to visit some patients that same afternoon, and they scarcely recognized him. Their peculiar actions revealed the change to him. The other case was of a roan 85 years old, living in the Netherlands.

Fortyvono Thousand Dollars Stolen-* ] Arrest of tho Thieves ami Recovery of tho money* i=Vcm the St, Paul Pioneer, June 20. i On Tuesday night last MaJ. A. 1). Brackett, . of Bracket's Northwestern Detective Police Bu reau, of this oily, received a telegram from Port Garry, stating that a heavy robbery bad taken I daco within a short distance of that fort, and hat the thieves wore supposed to havo fled to wards Bt. Paul, Tho tologram was from Dr. ' Brown, wall known in thin city, and contained a full and accurate description of tho men who wore supposed to havo committed tho robbery. Upon tuo receipt of tho tologram, Mai. Brack ett at onoo started on tho trail. Ho had an idea of just what course tho thieves would take, and, as tho sequel proved, ho made a shrewd calcu lation. lie loft on the next train for Duluth. Arrived at tho Junction, ho spied among tho crowd threo men who answered tho description telegraphed to him. Ono of them got aboard of tho train, and tho Major concluded to keep hia oyo upon him. and, Instead of getting off, ho wont to Duluth. Keeping his man in sight, tho next day, ho found that ho hod offered a SI,OOO bill at Btono'a Bank to bo changed. This tallied with hla telegram, and ho did not lose eight of hia man. On Wednesday evening tho spotted man took tho train which loft for Bt. Paul, and, strange as it may seem, tho Major was on board of ilie same train. At the Junction tho two men which the Major had soon tho day before got on board, and then ho know that ho had found his men. Tho next thing was to mako suro that ho'was right. Thoro was no hurry in tho matter Watching an apropos time, tho Major sauntered through the ears, and on arriving whore tho threo men sat ho spoke to ono of thorn with all tho famil iarity of an old acquaintance. The man seemed a little surprised at being thus familiarly accosted, and rather intimated that tho Major had thb advantage of him. **Whyl don’t you remember mo?” says tho Major. “I mot yon at Port Garry last year. Your name is Calkins, Isn't it?” u Yes, that's my name; but I don't rooolloot mooting yon.” " Why, don't you remember tho little time wo had at tho hotol thoro ?” says the Major, in hia jovial way. “ I never forgot a countenance or a name; and (taming to the other two men) I re member Mr. Walker and Mr. Daggett, also, who woro there at tho samo'tlmo." By this time all throe of tho men began to think that they hod mot tho Major na ho said, and thoy at once, admitted tho fact that that was their names, and ware glad to boo their friend of such excellent memory. An hour or so was passed in social converse as tho train sped on, and whon near White Boar the Major Drought tho pleasant occasion to an abrupt close by saying s “Well, boys, I want you to shell out! You have some money that I want. You may as well disgorge. You aro tho men I havo boon looking for. 1 arrest you for tho robbery of Lord Gordon.” Tho astonishment of tho two can bo imagined. Thoy woro caught in a trap, and thoy know it in a moment. Thoy made no resistance, as thoy saw that the Major had surrounded them with hia friends, who were ready to help him in case of emergency. Thoy camo op at once and produced tho money, $41,000 bills, and tho balanoe of the SI,OOO bill that had boon changed in Duluth. Tho Major brought hia men to this city, and placed them in tho Bamsoy County Jail, and will hold them to await tho issuing of extradition pa pers to carry them back to Manitoba for trial. Tho money was stolon from Lord Gordon, a man pretty well known by reputation, not only. In tins city, but in Now York, and, in fact, on tho other side of tho Atlantic. Most of our readers will doubtless remember the circumstances un der which tho so-called Lord Gordon became known to tho people of this State, and tho prom inent part hojplayod in certain financial transac tions with Jay Gould, of Now York City. After the Gould difficulty ho disappeared, and since that time ho has boon in Manitoba. It was known that ho had a largo amount of money with him, and those throe young men becoming aware of tho fact, watched their opportunity and robbed him as above stated. Walker and Calkins are both young men not over 22 years of ago. Daggot is proba bly 80 years old. A reporter of tho Pioneer in terviewed them at the jail yesterday, but they are very reticent in tbeir remarks, and what thoy do say is so Improbable that wo decline publish ing anything they said.

ROMANTIC TRAGEDY. Two St* JTohnsTllle JLorors Ilnry Their Wocy In the Grave—Suicide of a Mar ried Man and a Young Girl* From the Albany Evening Journal, June 18. Considerable oxcitomoufc prevailed at Bt. Johns villa, Montgomery County, yesterday, in consequence of a remarkable tragical affair there, two prominent citizens having committed suicide under very peculiar circumstances. The facts in the case, we are informed, are about as follows: Dr. A. D. Whoolock, a resident physician of Bt. Jobnsville, has for some time past been pay ing attention to a Mias Ruth Smith, a young lady of highly respectable family. The young lady’s friends objected to her keeping company with Dr. Whoolock, on the ground that ho Lad a wife living from whom ho had not boa| divorced. On tho morning of the Xsth lust, miss Smith went to Littlo Falls, whoro Whoolock was to meet her, and it is supposed that it was their Intention to bo married. Miss Smith wont by train, while tho doctor proceeded there with his own carriage. It is supposed that after arriving at Littlo Falls tbo Doctor changed bib mind, for no marrlago ensued, and instead ho commenced proceedings fora divorce from his wife. Tho young lady returned to her homo in St. Jobnsville at 1:15 p. m. At 2p. m. it was discovered that she had taken poison, and an hour later she was dead. Dr. Whoolock returned some time during tho aftomoon, aod after receiving information of tho death of Miss Smith, disappeared. Yester day morning ho was discovered in a room in tho Empire Ilotol at St. Johnsvillo, lying on tho floor in au unconscious condition. It was then ascertained that ho had passed tho night there with a friend, and about 0 o’clock in tbo morning asked tho friend to go out aud learn how the inquest in tho case of Miss Smith was progressing. Ho also asked the frioud to return within an hour. Tho friend complied with his request, and on returning to Ids room found Whoolock in an unconscious condition, as stated, from an overdose of morphine. The Doctor soon afterwords expired. Tho Coroner's inquest resulted in & verdict that Miss Smith came to her death by arsenic, and Whoolock by an overdose of morphine. Somo wore of au impression that tho latter was not Intentional, but tho circumstances would soom to indicate otherwise. Whether tho young lady woe induced to commit tho rash act through tho bitterness of disappointment, or in conse quence of a quarrel, 1b not known. microscopic Worms. Some time ago, Assistant Surgeon Lewis, of tbo British Army, having boon assigned to special duty uudor tbo Sanitary Commission for tbo Government of India, in examining tbo urino and blood of certain patients, discovered tbo existence of living, active worms, hitherto unobserved. Those worms are 1-75 of an inch in length, and they have a transverse diameter of 1>3500 of an inch. They are so numerous os to bo found in blood drawn from any part of the body, and so persistent that they may exist in the system for months or years without any marked evil consequences being observed. It is said, however, that they may give rise to serious diseases, and ultimately cause death. Those worms appear, through the microscope, like in completely developed snakes ; they move inces santly, coiling and uncoiling themselves, and rush about among tbo blood corpuscles in all directions. They do not appear to exist any where but in the blood and urine. DEATHS. ELLIOTT—At Sterling, at 6:30 p. m. Juno S3, Sarah Jano, wlfo of O. T. Elliott. Funeral services atßp. tu.
