2 LONDON. The Coming of tlio Shah— Some Murmurs. A Project to • “ Improve ” Among the Negro—Tho Due d’Aumalc. Thiers and MacMahon—Speculations and Predictions as to France. Germany Asks a Few Questions— French Censorship of Unpleasant Telegrams. From Our Own Correspondent. London, Juno 5,1873, THE COMING 07 TOE SHAH. It may have boon told already, in America, that, on tbo occasion of a visit of tbo late Princo Albert to Liverpool, tbo Bov. Dr. Hugh M'NeLIo, a well-known clergyman, heralded tho ovont by a sermon from tho text 11 Tho Princo comoth In all his beauty." The Bovorond Doctor was ridi culed for his flunkoyism, hot 1 fancy there aro persons loft who would find parallel excuses in Scripture for a like display of tho worship of rank. In tho case of tbo Bbah, however, tho Church must bo still. Tho Persian potentate is not a Christian; and, if tho motives of solf-in toreat wore loss powerful than thoy aro In tho human breast, many of tho zealots would bo denouncing tho Government for showing any courtesies to , tho Mahometan at all. As it is, tho country has adopted tho theory, that Persia may bo very useful to England; that, if tho Shah can bo sufficiently impressed with a sense of tho great ness of tho British Empire, ho may mako cause With tho English against the Czar, and so add another barrier to tho Bussian advance toward India I Tho olorgy, therefore, will ho sllout, and tho Bishops will bo as eager os any ono for in troductions. ■ Tho papers recount tbo sums which are to bo epont in receiving him. Thoy describe how tho Hoot is to exhibit its numbers and strength, and Che army its maneuvers; how tho City of London is to show its docks and its warehouses, and every important branch of industry, its prin cipal feats. Aro there auy murmurs ?. Yea; critics there are who insist upon reading this visitor a sermon. For instance, the Times, after reminding us of the display on tho occa sion of tho visit of tho Sultan, and of tho noble and generous reception accorded to tho Khedive of Egypt, who was tho guest of a private noble man, takes tho opportunity of informing tho Shah that there is "something rotten in this -Asiatic State,’’ moaning tho Persian Empire. In some recondite language, alluding to “ Aohnomo man or Sassanian glories,” tho Shah is told that 4 * a blight hangs over tho country ” which ho rules. " There are no roads; tho cultivation is wretched; tho land is In numberless places pass ing into wilderness." Tho Times is still politely referring to Persia, and not to Ireland and Scot land. It docs not allude to tho blight in tho po tato crop of tho one, nor to tho fact that ono may travel for sixty miles in the other without 'seeing a human habitation or a human being. “Tho people [in Persia] are poor.” It may ho as well—retorts another journal—not to send tho Shah to visit tho cot tages of Somersetshire, or ovonDuckinghamshiro, peasantry. Wo presume that ho will not accom ißjar 1? groundsel and hullvuehos. With regard to Por fiian ignorance, wo might, but will not, show him tho "marks” of tho two Chipping Norton laborers’ wives, or furnish him with a detail of tboir treatment by ministers of religion in a Christian land. Tlio Times takes tho opportu nity of informing tho Shah that " The very exist ence of tlio [Persian] Empire is at stake.” It would seem to bo desirable to take some of tho pride and stiffness out of him by this voryplain speaking, before ho comes to this "Happy Land,” and boos the groat Gladstone Coni not in tho flesh. ." Wo aro not inform ed,” says on opposing journal, "that ho has as yet paid tribute by way of indem nity for injuries ho never inflicted, or sought the flattering influences of Arbitration to decide his boundaries* fato. We fancy that wo know another Empire whoso very existence is at stake, and this not through ‘Us geographical position,* or tho stem necessities of tho case, but by tho free choice and conduct of the sot of Dervishes and fanatics into whoso hands, by some strange magic or witchcraft, tho nation has intrusted its honor, safety. and possessions.” Tho doom of Persia is. wo learn, " to bo conquered piece after {lioce by Bussia, or to sink into a position hard y superior to that of the Tartar Khanates,” as the "necessary end of such a subsidence of energy and well-being as has been witnessed within the last half century. Only tbo inter ference of England could prevent tho power which has possessed itself of Georgia, Mingrolia, And Erivan from completing tho work of con quest." Exactly so. It is the interference of England which ti wanted, not only to aavo Per sia. if she ho in this danger, but India. A whole brood of harpies has boon fluttered by a special warning respecting BLACKMAIL TO COURTIERS. It seems that, when the Sultan visited this country, ho incurred a serious expense by giving snuff-boxes, covered with diamonds, to tho offi cials about tho Court. Ono nohlo Lord, who still has a situation about tho Palace, bitterly com- Elainod that ho had been left out of tho distri ntion, and actually, like a sturdy beggar, whined ' and bogged to tho Grand Vizier until ho got his snuff-box. Many suggestions havo boon made respecting the best method of receiving the Bhah of Persia, so as to givo him a befitting idea of tlio national characteristics. The best suggestion is, that all persons who receive a salary from the State bo absolutely for bidden to levy blackmail on him! When an Oriental potentate makes a nresont to ono of tho East Indian officials, tho present is handed over to tho public treasury, and ho re ceives in return a gift exactly equal in value. Diplomatists are allowed to receive neither dec orations nor presents. Why should -nbt this rule be extended to courtlete ? Tho "no fees to servants,” which Is inscribed on tho walls of somo places of public amusement, ought to bo prominently inscribed ovor Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. THE NEGRO TO BE "IMPROVED" away in tho last thomo raised by Mr. Stanley's old enemy, Mr. Francis Gallon. Nothing “riled" the discoverer of Livingstone so much as a sneer from Mr. Onlton at tho British Asso ciation, when tho latter particularly disagreea ble and. oouatitod individual publicly ex pressed a hope that Mr. Blautoy “ would give them sorao facts and avoid sensa tion." Mr. Oalton now proposes to tnako tho oncourageinont of Ohiuoeo sottlomonta at ono or more suitable places ou tho east coast of Africa a put of the English national policy, in tho holier that tho Chinese immigrants would not only maintain their position, but that they would multiply, and their descendants supplant tho inferior negro race. “ I should expect," ho says, “that a largo part of the African seaboard, now sparsely occupied by lazy, palavering sava ges living under tho nominal sovereignty of Zanzibar, or I’ortugul, might iu a few years bo tenanted by Industrious, ordor-loving Chinese, living either as a semi-detached dependency of China, or olso in perfect freedom under their own lawn. In tho latter case their position would bo similar to that of the inhabitants of Liberia, in West Africa, the territory of which was pur chased fifty years ago and sot apart as an hide- Jondont State for tho reception of freed negroes rom America." Tho “philosopher" goes onto argue that average negroes possess too little intellect, solf roliauco, and self-control to mako it possible for them to sustain tho burden of any respectable form of civilization without a largo measure of external guidance and support." The China man is a boing of another kind, who is endowed with a remarkable aptitude for a high material civilization. The gam would bo immense to tho whole civilized world “ if wo wore to outbreed and finally displace tho negro, as completely as tho latter has displaced the aborigines of tho West Indies."- The 2Hme» agrees with tho “ principle " of tho philosopher, but does not see now the fchomo is to be carried oat. Tb&t, however, Is A. y tlio last 'thing will'd* troubles your eolontiflo .revolutionist,' v ► «*. . j f 1 . 1 • f s TIIE DUKE D’AtJMALE NO SAINT. Tho hope of tho Orloanlst party In Franco is an Intelligent roan, and, while residing In Eng land, ho bold his own in "Tho Club” with tlio lato Mr. Groto, Mr. Robert Lowo, tho Marquis of Salisbury, and others. But tho Buko gives no real support by bis character to tho Conservative cause. Things are being told just now, in pri vate Jotters from Paris, which some future Lady Mary Montague or Dnoboss XVAbrantos will work up. Tbo Duke is an idol at Oatbolio tea-tables ; ,hut, among actresses of a certain class, bis pious professions are treated as a joke. When tbo no torious Cora Pearl .was expelled from, Paris, one or two of her sox ‘grow frightened and turned spies for M. Thiers’ Government. By channels of this kind, tbo little man was kept very well informed of tbo goings-on of oortain pretenders in tbo State. Tlio portrait of the present favorite of tbo Luke may ho seen in tho Exhibition now open in Paris. She is seated on a splendid horse belonging to her Ducal admirer. Mademoiselle is a Bonapartist, and' it Is owing perhaps to this fact that M. Thiers was so badly duped by tbo Duke’s friends. In her prodocoasor’a days bo was bettor informed. „ . THIERS AND MAOMAHON. A lady of my acquaintance, in Paris, called tho other day on Madamo Thiers, at hor humble lodgings in tho Buo D’Aumalo, whore tho door was oponod by a sorvant-of-all-work, as thoy aro called hero, instead of a tall footman. My friend sat with Madamo Thiers for half-on-hour. Tho lattor said plainly that MnoMahon was a "traitor:” that ho had, only an hour before tho vote, made vehement protestations that ho would never accept tho Government; and yet ho had bean plotting to got rid of Thiers from tho be ginning. She said sho always distrusted Mao- Mahon herself, and had warned her husband against him; "but you know,” she added, "M. Tutors is so goodl” SPECULATIONS AND PREDICTIONS. Another friend of mine, in whoso judgment I havo much confidence, writes: "After my ■varied experience of tho last throo years, I havo come to think all parties pretty much alike. Thoy are rotten; and so is the nation. It is my opinion that MaeMahon will ultimately got into a holy war, and then Prussia will tako Champagne, and Franco wiU bo rightly served. MaeMahon has boon doing little olso but study polities over slnco ho was at Versailles. His sinister countenance was constantly to bo soon in tbo Chamber, sitting out tho dullest debates, long after ladies and tho majority of tho reporters had loft. Was ho making up a proscription list of Republican members to ho used in certain eventualities ? At any rate, ho knows, at this moment, tho personnel of tho Assembly‘far bettor than Louis Napoleon did at the Coup d’Etat. Louis Napoleon know only from re ports of agents ana tho speeches in tho Monilcur tho names of the Deputies ho arrested and transported. MaeMahon must havo tho opinions and tendencies of all tho members of tbo Bor deaux Assembly mapped out in’ bis mind from personal observation. If bo could got a Popish alliance, ho would bo the very man to mako war upon England, with Ireland as tho basis of operations.” It Is certainly an ominous fact that eovon out of eight now Ministers votod against Thiers on tho Bishops’ petition, which called on Franco to interfere for tho restoration ■ of tho Temporal Power. That it would ho madness in them to go to war for Don Carlos or tho Pope, is no reason that men who holiovo in tho graven imago at Chartres will not do it. GERMANE ASKS A FEW QUESTIONS, causing considerable uneasiness at Paris. Bis marck wautod explanations as to tho connection between "the aid of God end tho dovojodnoas of tho bravo French army,” and tho continuance of tho work of tho liberation of the French territory. Ho thought all 'that work was turned down by Thlore, ana does not understand what tho army has got to do with tho payment of tho remaining portion of the last milliard. Tho more fact of a "sabre” being put at tho head of the French Government excites tho suspicion of Prussia,-—honco tho humble tone just now adopted, in' which Do Broglie affirms that tho now Government follows precisely tho foreign policy of the last one. Magno, a mere financier, pleaded forsome time in vain with MaeMahon to reduce tho war-budget. If tho French Republic is to bo saved, it will probably bo by Prussia, which, I happen to know, frowns on MaeMahon and loans to Thiers. If Prussia does not ox orciso hor influence, MaeMahon, when ho gets warm in the saddle, may make short work with tho Bopablio. WHY THE FUNDS WENT UP. A good deal has been said about tho rise at the Bourse on the fall of Thiers. With how little wiadorn. Ac. That was part of tho conspiracy. Sunday morning. "* On £rthY&ay , 'ilfj|hVlbo "?u ndß were very low ; at midnight tho now Government was formed, and thoonormouspurchoscsmadoby tho confederates immediately tho Bourse oponod answered the purpose. M. Hague has said that ho will never outer upon the Ministry of Fi nance unices a rise docs tako place. If two or three millions aro lost by tho transaction, they ore arranged for in tho next budget. STOPPING TELEGRAMS. ’ MaoMahon’s Government has begun the prac tice of stopping telegrams that aro unpleasant. In point of fact, Buffet and Do Broglie aro at tliis moment the censors of tho English press. Only such messages as are agreeable to them are allowed to pass. Until six mouths ago, tho tele grams of some of tho correspondents wore every now and then stopped by M. Tluor’a Gov ernment, and wore often delayed. One day a clover and aotivo correspondent, who had been treated in this way, took tho bull by tho horns, and prefaced an important telegram by a com plaint that old subordinates, following tbo ways of the Empire, kept hack telegrams—ho was sure without the sanction of tho highest author ities. This hold polioy mot with entire success. Delay is as bad as denial, and now that a mes sage has to bo first sent to a Minister, who is, perhaps at dinner or at supper, it is of -very lit tle use at all. THE PRO-RATA LAW-A FARMER’S VIEW OF IT. • Hillsdale, 111,, Juno 21, 1873. To the JEditor of The Chicago Tribune ; 8m: In tho weekly Issue of your paper of June 18, you take what seems to mo to ho an erroneous view of tho pro-rata law. Tho posi tion is assumed that tho railroads will charge pro rata for long distances, on through freights, what thoy now ohargo for local freight. The farmers presume tho opposite. Thoy take the position that tho railroad companies havo boon well paid for carrying through freight, or else they would not havo carried it. Thou, instead of increasing through freight pro rata, as you assume, thoy will bo required to reduce the local freight pro rata with tho past price of carrying through freight. That, yon will soo, puts a different coloring to tho whole matter. You may say tho railroads will not reduce their local rates pro rata with tho through ratos of tho past. Then there will bo a hard light. Tho farmers do not behove hat what tho freight can bo thus reduced, and tho railroad companies still bo able to pay roasonablo dividends on bona fide stock. Under such.a statement of facts, tho farmers of lowa and Kansas do want, a pro-rata law. Such a law would in no. wise increase through freights, and would greatly lessen local freights. Tho railroad companies will have hard work to convince a jury that they have been losing on tholr through transportations in the past. 11. SALOONS ON THE NORTH SIDE. To Oit Editor of The Chicago Tribune Sin : In almost every edition of The Tbiuunb wo road of arrests mado by tho police of this city of thoso who havo kept their saloons open after 12 o'clock at night, or olso havo sold liquor or boor ou -Sunday. Thoso arrests have boon thus far nearly all confined to tho West Side, but it would bo woll if tho police authorities would mako a visit to this, the North Side, whero there aro those who aro keeping night after night their saloons open, whore boor and liquor can bo obtained at all hours, and also whore card-playing is allowed to bo carried on “ until daylight doth appear;" and also thoso same sa loons aro kept open on tho Babbath. and boor and liquor can bo obtained without auy degree of secrecy. Tho police of .this North Bide know full well whero thoso liloces aro, inasmuch as, only a short imo since, X saw one member of the force talk ing, ou the Babbath, with persons ou tho out side of a saloon wherein men woro sitting drink ing their beer. On any Sunday you can procure, at tho greater portion of those saloons on Mar ket street, as woll as ou Chicago avenuo, as well as at thoso grocery-stores whore they keep a bar, all the beer and liquor that one requires: ana not this only, but also, at those saloons and grocery-stores, card-playing goes on during tho Babbath just the eamo as though it woro week day. At one of thoso saloons, only a few even ings since, a man lost, while in a state of intoxication, his gold watoti. No one was arrested, and probably no complaint was mado to the police; and yet, at this samo saloon, drinking is carried on all night. Tho polico aro supposed to ho passing and roposslug tho sa loon; still, they.either will not or do not boo what is going on, for reasons best known to themselves. It is time that a stop Is put to these TMli CHICAGO icrlrxioa and misdemeanors. There arc thbeo on this Hue who wish to do just what. tlio law re quires do: to close at 113 o’clock at night; also, to keep their saloons closed on tbo Sabbath; and, if they are willing to abide by tbo requirements of tbo law, why should not those who will-not freely do what tho law bids them do bo compelled by tho stern band of tbo law .to do so?

Correspondence of the Ke\c York Sun. There Is a balf-milo race-track twenty miles from thin oily, on wbai is known as tho Oborry Crook road. Tho Twolvo-Mllo. House,, an ex cellent hotel, stands near the course. Its pro prietor, John Mclviu, considers himself thor oughly posted on horse-flesh, and knocks under to nobody. His place is a favorite rendezvous for tho stock-brooders in tho viciuUff who tost the mottle of their horses on tho track, and tho mottle of their. stomachs at Mr. Melvin’s bar. About two weeks ago a party of those gentle men and a few sporting men from Denver wore gathered on tho course, working their horses for the Juno races, When they desired to as certain tbo speed of a certain horse they drew a stick across tho track, and scored for tuo mark. The most of tho flyers wore bred west of tho Kansas lino, and much interest was manifested in their movements. There wore no trotters among them, and of course they wore exorcised under tho saddle. A guileless savage appeared upon tho plain. Ho came from a Uto camp half a mile below tho hotel. Ho was moufitod upon a scrub of a pony that had tasted nothing but wild grass from tlio hour it was weaned, lungs of bright rod paint ran around the rider's eyes, and tho same color glowed upon his cheeks. Ho watched tho movements of the horses some time with ab sorbing interest. Then ho approached tho pro prietor of tho hotel and tho course, spying: "Raco-horso—one," making a motion around tho track. “ Fivo dollar.” The sporting men greeted tho proposition with ironical smiles, and gathered about to hoar tlio fun. Melvin, however, accepted tho Uto’s ban tor. lie unhitched an old mare from a team hauling wood, flung a rancho hoy upon her hack, and turned her on tho track. Ho next planked down as 6 bill, and asked tho gentle savage to cover it. Tho Indian hesitated a moment as if loth to trust his money in tho hands of awhile man; but being assured that it would ho all right, ho fished a crisp greenback out of his rags, • and turned it over to tho stakeholder. Tho score was drawn anew, tho old mare took tho inside, and at tho word they wore off without a false start. Tho guileless savage did his best. His rags and feathers fluttered in tho wind, and ho sped around tho course like a hungry Juno bug. Tlio old mare, however, was too much for him. She laid herself down to her work, and came in a fair length ahead. A roar of laugh ter greeted the rod man. Ho took his loss like a stoic. For throe minutes ho sat upright gaz ing at tho track. Then tho guileless savage turned his horse’s head and slowly rodo away. Tho whites flocked to tho bar and drank tho health of tho old maro. Within an hour tho guileless savage reap fleered. Ho had a different horso—a stumpy ooklng pony, with trim logs and a gamo oyo. Two noble rod men loped upon tho track behind him. The Uto alighted, walked up to tho pro prietor, and said: “ ’Nothor horse—run one,” making a circu lar motion, " Fivo dollar.” “ Yea ; all right,” responded tho while man. winking at his companions. “ Hero sho goes,” slapping a V into tho hands of tho old stake holder. The Indian began to fumble about his clothes, but was unablo to turn out more than $3 in currency. Ho consulted with his com- S anions, and, after some low talk, they put up a ollar apiece, and tho white man s hill was cov ered. Tuo old mare again came up to tho scratch and took tho inside of tho track. They got a fair send-off. Tbo guileless savage hold his own down tho stretch, and forged ahead on tho turn. Tho sporting men began to got excited. Down tho hack strotcb tho pegged Pegasus flew like a bird, with tho old more clinched on his quarter. Olipnitv clip thoy came around tho upper turn and along mo numo-otrotoU, ami Aim Timmnpqny crossed tho mark a winner by a length and a half. Tho guileless savage received tho stakes with great dignity, and repaid his borrowed to tho bar. link nru The Uto was a warrior, but ho was not satis fied. His white brethren still had two dollars of his money. Ho wanted to recover it. Without changing a musclo of his face, and in an ovon touo of voice, ho said: "Run one—Fivo dollar—Samo horse.” It was tho turn of tho whites to consult. Thoy were suspicious of tho Indian pony, and there was no bettor horso on tho track than tho old maro. At last ono of tho party said that ho had traded a grey horso to tho Indians that morning that could nm 800 yards in extraordinary time. A herder wont down to tho Uto camp and bor rowed tho grey runner. Tho 300 yards wore paced off, and a mark was mado in tho dirt to designate tho distance. Tho guileless savage looked first at tbo ecoro-lino. Ho noxt walked down tho stretch and examined tho 300-yord mark. Ho was not satisfied with a superficial examination, but got down on his hands and knees and inspected the lino,aßthoughho feared there was some witchcraft about it. Finally, however, ho jumped to his foot and moved back to the score. Pointing to tho two horses and to tho two scratches on tho track, ho said, in an impressive tone of voice: " Run ono—Fivo dollar.” Tho stakes wore put up. and both riders sprang into tboir saddles. Tho start was an oven ono.' Away thoy wont like tho wind. It was nip and tuck, but tbo Uto rodo his pony like a feather, and came out nearly a length ahead. Ho received tho stakes without a word, and wan dered down tho track, loading his pony by tho bridle. Tho guileless savage mado no more propositions. As he. was throo dollars in, ho seemed to think that further proposals should come from tho ono who was throo dollars out. Meanwhile, four more braves and an Indian boy had armed. ' Thoy clustered around the guileless savage and chattered like magpies. The whites wore chagrined at their defeat, and wore casting about for another chargor. Just at this moment a young fellow happened to come along mounted on an old runner, known throughout tho territory as tho Oruig horso. The animal was well blooded, had a clean record, and could chuck a mile over its back in quick time. Tho rider drew the horse up to tho fence to see the fun. When ho was told what had oc curred ho poured out a hat full of profanity, and swore that his horse could boat any Indian pony that over lived. There was no doubt that tho Craig horso could walk off with any horseflesh of tho guileless savage. Anybody with half an oyo could see that. Ho tho whites deliberately put up a job on tho unsuspecting aborigine. They proposed to match tho Craig horso against the pony; but thoy had a little trouble in getting tho guileless savage to make a race. Ho wont and looked at tho Craig horse. Then ho shook his head, saying, "Big horso. Heap run;” Tho next movo was a council of war. Tiro eight In diana wrapped their blankets about thorn so that nothing but thoir faces could bo scon, and squat ted down near the track, jabbering away like a lot of old women. Tho popular idea that an In dian is tacit uni is a humbug. Thoy can talk tho hair off of any Cheap John In tho country. Tho pow-wow being at an end, tho bravos arose, and the guileless savage walked around I tbo course. As he crossed tho score ho sold: " Yes—mo run one.” Tho whites, knowing that thoy had “ a soft thing," os thoy expressed it, hot heavy. They exchanged winks and smiles as thoyput up thoir money, and tho Indians took the bait. Tho latter were eager to hot. Thoy sholiod out all thoy had. Ono of thorn could not turn out but throo nickels, but ho insisted upon placing them where thoy would do tho most good. Thoy stripped them selves of thoir blankets and beads, and wampum, and offered to wager them on tho pony. Ono wanted to put up his Grant modal against $6. Tho modal was tuo size of a saucer, and con tained over sl6 worth of silver. Its owner had boon known to rofuso that money for it. Some of tho white men wore disposed to tako those bets at a fair valuation, but wore deterred by tho huniaultarian sports, who said that thoy had a sure thing, and it was a "cus sed shame to tuko such things from the Indi ans.” Bo the rooo was arranged on a money basis. Tho Ulos sent down to thoir camp for money, and half tho tribe put in thoir appear ance. Thoy panned out exaotly $37.16. This was covered by tho smart palefaces, but the in nocent Indians objected to tho stakeholder. Thoy insisted that a rod man should hold tho monoy, and, after a short dispute tho whito sharpers ossouted. Tho horses wore mounted and brought to tho score. "Mohoot ’em throo—four times," said tho guileless savage. "Mo go hero,” pointing to tho inside of tho track. As ho had gouo on tho outside every tlmo be fore, tho whites gave in, and tho horses started, with tho Indian pony on tho Inside. Tho Craig animal wont off with a hound that showed its blood and training, but the pony stuck to him llko a woodtick, and they mado tho turn together, On tho book-stretch the guileless savage came to [AijuV,- : TUESDAY,, JUNE ‘ii, , i 8?& thd frdht., Hla blooded antagonist nrntjo ft final effort under tho lasli’ df bin rider at tlio lost tuni. but ibo'guilolosa Savago moro than hold bin and camo homo, crossing tho mark flvo or elx longths ahead.

Two iTSiauing Children Found in a Clouet in uu Unoccupied House—Ono l)ond 9 the Other Slowly liecovering ■•A Hellish Piece of‘Work. From the Phxladdphia Inquirer, June 21. In yostorday’fl Inquirer tbo fact was briefly stated that two llttlo girls, residing with tholr parents at “Roso Hill," In the Twenty-fifth ward, had boon missing since Wednesday morn ing. Since the timo when those linos woro writ ton tho missing children woro found, and andor circumstances chat point unerringly ta tho perpe tration of a most horriblo crime. Tho children wero Ann Eliza Ragan, aged be tween 4 and 6 years, and Margaret Mulvoy, -aged 6 years. Tho parents of Anuio Ragan 1 lived on Rose Hill street, above Somerset, and tho par ents of Maggie Mulvoy resided on Oram street, tbo uiuth house above Somerset. Roso Hill street and Oram street aronoxt tuoacli other, both in a sootlon known as Roso Hill," and tho roar porta of tbo houses of Mr. Mulvoy and Mr. Ragan adjoined, the families being intimate with each other. On Wednesday morning about 0 o'clock tbo mother of Maggie Hagan noticed that Bho and her little playmate. Annie Mulvoy, who had been playing together in the yard, had gone out of the yard, and Mrs. Hagan made search in the immediate neighborhood for the children, without finding them. Although somewhat anxious, the parents of both girls thought nothing serious about their absence until Wednesday night. After a most unremitting search not the slightest tidings could bo learned of them. On Thursday the search was resumed with increased earnestness, several neighbors aiding, but all was of no avail, tho children could not bo found, and from tho various station houses throughout tho city came replies to inquiries that nothing was known or board of the little girls described. On Thursday night Mr. Mulvoy wont to the Control Station and related tho mysterious story to Capt. Hems, of - the detoctivo force. While Mi. Mulvoy was at tho Control Mrs. Ragan camo in on tho some errand, and stated, additionally, that certain occurrences led her to believe that some one was hiding tbo children. Capt. Hoius detailed OfUcor Galloway to visit parties named by Mrs. Ragan, in the hope that some clue might bo discovered to tho whereabouts of tho children, and, foiling In that, to search crooks, empty houses, and other likely places in tho vi cinity. These orders were carried out - strictly WiniOUt UOVOlOpiug aujf auuwioUtJO «« whereabouts of the little ahsonteoß. On Thursday, ot midnight, Mr. Ragan and wlfn ana Mr. Ragan’s brother, John Ragan, wore out continuing • their, to them, hopeless search, and were moving m the direction of Ra gan’s house, when, in passing near an unoccu pied house on Oram street, above Somerset, a child’s cough was hoard proceeding from a room in tho unoccupied house. A light wasprooured, and a search immediately instituted. Tao empty house referred to is the third house of a row which stands on' the oast side of Oram street,

north of Somerset. Guided by tho child’s weak voice, a closet in the front room on the second fioor was at lost reached, tho door opened and a horrible sight revealed. From the closet, as soon as tho door was opened, rolled tho body of little Maggie Mulvoy from her position on tho body of Annio Ragan, who lay on tho floor of tho cloaot, cold, still, and lifoloss. Mr. Ragan picked up tho almost dying Maggio Mulvoy, and hastened with horinto tho reviv ing air, Mrs. Ragan,‘with feelings of incon ceivable woo, carried away tho corpse of hor daughter. Tho nows of tho finding of tho two children spread like lightning, and, as certain indica tions pointed to a ‘peculiarly horrible feature in the cose, tho oxoitomeut in tho vicinity became intense as tho morning wore on. It was said that blood was on tho ‘ person and clothing of tho littlo ono who was dead when discovered, and that tho bodios of both wore much bruised and their clothes torn. The sickening conviction that tho Mary Mohrmann tragedy had boon repeated, and re peated under circumstances of increased atroc ity, became general. Owing to remarks that certain persons living in tho- neighborhood had mads, to tho effect that revenge shoold be wroaked on the Mulvcys, the parties wore arrested, between the persons taken into custody and tho Mulvcys there has existed a bitterness of fooling for some time, en gendered by a lawsuit. As there is not very di rect evidence connecting thoporeoos referred to with tho shocking occurrence, their names arc withheld from publication. It was also stated that when Mr. Ragan took up tho body of littlo Maggio Mulvoy from tho floor whore she hod fallen when tho closet door was opened, tho child said, supposing that it was hor father who picked hor up, “ Oh, papa, I’m afraid of that man ; ho put mo in there." Tho Coroner’s physician, Dr. Bhapleigh, made a post-mortem examination yesterday al'torudon of tho body of Annie Ragan. Bho was dressed in a rod woolen frock, ragged chintz apron, and black gingham balmoral. The external marks of violence wore as follows: A bruise on tho loft kuoo t on both sides of tho pa tella (knee-pan); similar braise on the right kuoo; oruisos on tho upper angle of tho pelvis: bruises on both elbows ; another bruise about one inch above tho loft wrist; a bruise on the forehead, above tho right eyebrow. Thoro wore also several other slight bruises. Upon dissec tion it was found that tho brain was congested; tho blood-vessels wore engorged; the right lung normal; tho loft congested; the liver slightly congested ; tho stomach, kidneys, and intestines healthy; tho stomach empty, no food having en tered for some time, and bruises all very Blight. No Bigna of outrage, whatever wore discovered. Tho bruises on tho child Mulvoy arc similar in character. Although it is gralifyingly proved, clearly enough, that thoro was not a forsaken wretch of tho John Hanlon stamp in tho case, tho affair is not tho loss shocking, for it Is plainly evident that tho children wore placed in the closet where found. During tho searches kept up on Wednes day and Thursday, tho house in which tho cloaot is built, and tho closet itself, were examined several times. OfUcor Dingiu and a citizen wont through tho house, and examined tho very closet in which tho children wore discovered on Thursday afternoon ot 1 o’clock, and at that time-noticed certain marks and stains on the flour, walls, and doors of the cloaot, that were afterwards supposed to havo boon tho results of tho imprisonment of tho girls within tho closot. At tho time of their visit tho children woro not in tho closet, and it is morally certain that If they had been, and woro unnoticed, they would havo boeudead long boforo midnight, for thoro la scarcely any space to admit fresh air when tho closet door is olosod. Ono of our reporters mado an examination of tho olosot yesterday afternoon, and, with a police officer, got inside and pulled the door shut, the door fastening with a spring holt on the outside. As another police olllcor, who was expected to havo opened the door, moved down stairs igno rant that tho closet door was closed on his two companions, and failed to return in response to calls, thoro was no alternative hut to forco tho door open, which was done, Tho holt scorned to fly baolc as ike force was applied, as tho hasp was not broken, and tho uolt worked os be fore after tho door had boon forced open. Tho closet is of the ordinary wardrobo kind, and of tho usual dimensions, and, as the door fits tightly, suffocation would be apt to ensue in a few hours to i full-grown man looked in It. with fchfc temperature as high as it was yesterday or\ the aiyhoforo. The power applied to force/tbo' idopr. mHha instance referred’ to,''was much greater tha« any child of Q or 0 years old could oxort. ' Although tho detectives hold tholr own coun sel ond keep pretty close mouths ns to tholr in formation and theories, there aro numbers of persons, ks usual in auoh eases, who aro qulto open In expressing tholr opinions, and freely impart tho conclusions arrived at.. It is said, on this foundation, that Mngglo Mulvoy yesterday afternoon recovered so far as,to bo. able to an swer sbmo few questions put to her. In reply to tho question as to whdro she hod boon all tbo time from Wednesday morning, she said that a woman had taken her to- tho country .to buy her a gum doll, and that afternoon a man bad put her In tho clouot. A suspicious circum stance alleged against two of tho parties under arrest is that tholr place of residence was closed during tho wholo of Wednesday and Thursday, and that tholr windows wore thrown open about midnight on Thursday. This is tho samo party who expressed a determination to bo rovougod on tho parents of tho llttlo girl who died. Last evening, all tho parties arroutod on tho charge of being implicated in tho transaction woro dls chargod. v Basing tho judgment on tho examination of tho Coroner’s physician, it scorns certain that tho children woro oithor deliberately looked In tho olonot by somo ono having a grudge agalristtho parents, or that they, while playing, got in them selves, and sprang tho look themselves. Tho latter supposition certainly seems inadmissible. On account of tho length of time ono of tho children survived, and because of tbo foot that tbo closet was empty on Thursday afternoon at 1 o’clock. It Is only too prohablo that tbo rev elations vet to como will provo tbo llttlo inno cents to Lavo boon tho victims of an atrocious crime.. AN IOWA TRAGEDY.

After a time ho entered into conversation with his wife, expressing a wish for reconciliation. Ho asked Lis wife to forglvo him, which sho seemed ready to do. Not satisfied with a simple declara tion of forgiveness, ho doalrod somo token. Sho inquired what it should bo. Ho replied, a declaration; in presence of tho'women then seated ■ oround tbo miilfe, and a kiss. Sho was willing to grant tho zormor, but refused to give the token. Soon after, Mr. Sum ner stopped behind Ills wife’s chair, placing his hands upon her shoulders, when somo further conversation passed between them. Ho then deliberately drew her head back with ono hdhd, and with tho other drow from his bosom a com mon butcher-knife, and mado a-pass at her throat, cutting an ugly gash diagonally down tho nock, severing tho jugular vein.' Mrs. Biimnor seized hold of the kmfo-blado with hor hands, and tho other women sprang to tho rosouo. Thoy fought'sd Gallantly that Mrs. Snmnor suc ceeded in escaping from tho Uonso.

During tho meloo, .ono, woman brought & chair down upon tbo murderer's head with such forco as to mako him reel. . .

On returning to tho house, shortly after, Mr. Sumner camo crawling oat at tho door on his hands and knees, blooding profusely from Bolf-inflicted wounds. Supposing ho had killed his wife, ho then Blabbed himself, once in tho ~..vx tu mo jort gido. pne.wrnmd penetrating tho lunga. He died not long after, solicitous only for having mado certain his mur derous designs upon his wife. Mrs. Sumner bled profusely from tbo wound in hor nock, but it is thought she may recover. MURDER NEAR BELLEVILLE, ILL. A Young: JTlan Shot and Killed by iSis Step-Father. From the St Louie Itepublican, June 21. At half-post 7 o’clock yesterday morning, at a farm three miles from Belleville, 111., Stephen Boshays (pronounced Dohav) was shot dead by his step-father, Henry Wilkins. The circum stances of the affair, aa developed at the inquest hold yoatorday evening by Coroner Byau, of St. Clair County, wore those: About a year ago a . widow named Sirs. Dcb hays, aged 42, and having a eon namod Stephen (the deceased), aged 21 years, and anothornamod Eugene, aged 10 years, married Henry Wilkins (the murderer), aged 23 years. The older sou, Stephen, did not like the marriage, and ho and his step-father did not got along harmoniously. Quarrels wore frequent, and the step-son made frequent throats of ‘‘cleaning out the concern.” Stephen rented a farm of his mother, and was in the habit of borrowing of her various agricul tural implements, and this, although not brought out in the testimony, is stated to have boon the cause of dissatisfaction between him and his step-father. On the morning of the murder, Wilkins was engaged in making some repairs on a reaper, when his step-sou came to the house for tho purpose of gottiug it to cut his own wheat. Some angry words passed between them on tho subject, and the son wont out into tho kitchen whore his mother was, and said to her, “What is tho old mother tried to - pacify him, and told him ho should have tho use of tho implement to out his grain with, also.. At this juncture, tho step-father came up and tho step-son ran to him, and, shaking his fist under his nose, reiterated his throat of cleaning out tho concern. Wilkins then went into another room, leaving Stephen ou tho stop just before tho kitchen door talking with his mother. In a moment ho returned with a pistol and fired two shots at Stephen, whose hook was towards him. one taking effect in his loft shonlder-hlado and the other m tho back of his head, from which ho died almost instantly. Stephen, who had but one arm.—tho loft, —was bolding a uatchot at tho time ho received the shot, hut not in a menacing posture. After tho shooting Wilkins wont to Belleville, and was soon by several persons, but nothing was known then about the murder. When it was discovered ho could not he found. It was known that ho hod mounted his horse and rode away. Coroner Byan was notified of tho affair, and at a late hour in. tho afternoon proceeded to tho farm whore tho affair occurred, and hold au in quest on thq body of tho deceased. Tho principal witness at tho inquest was tho young brother of deceased, Eugene Doshays. Ho related howhis brother and stop-father quar reled, tho throats of cleaning out the , concern made by his brother, tho going for tho pistol by his step-father, and the particulars of tho shooting. Tho mother endeavored to robot tho testimony of her son by showing that ho was not at tho time in a position to see tho parties, hut a dia gram of the promises were produced showing their relative position, and by tho testimony of two other witnesses it was shown that the hoy was so situated that bo could see all that occur red up to tlio firing of tho first shot. His state ment was that when one shot was fired ho be came alarmed and ran off. Tho verdict of tho Corner’s jury was in accordance with tho above facts. When the murder bocamo known mounted offi cers woro sent in pursuit of the murderer, buf he had not boon found at our latest account. The Now Trade Dollar.
