A goodly audience assembled at City Hall last evening to attend the concluding entertain ment of the People’s Course, which consisted of reading by Prof. Churchill, the well-known elocutionist. The Professor was in unusually good voice, and read with even more than his accustomed spirit. His remarkable power of facial expression seems to grow by practice. The selections last evening were six in number, viz: Dothcboys Hall, from Nicholas Nickleby. Betsy and I Are Out, Joe’s Death, from Bleak House, The Tourists’ Guide, from The Inno cents Abroad, Sequel to Betsy and I Are Out; Mr. Bumble’s Courtship, from Oliver Twist. The selections seemed to find great favor with the audience, who were prodigal of applause. The course has been a pleasing and successful one. Mr. G. A. Jones, its manager, has certainly established his reputation in this State as a first class manager of fine entertainments, having presented to our citizens during the past three i years some of the finest we have had. Our J citizens are indebted to him for the first ap pearance in Maine of Charlotte Cushman as a reader, Mrs.Harriet Beecher Stowe,Prof. J. W. Churchill, Rev.Dr. Cudworth, Beethoven Quin tette Club and other intellectual and pleasing entertainments. We are pleased to learn that he has met with good success the past season in lurnisliing lyceum committees throughout the State with concerts. Much ado About Nothing.—The good peo ple of Pooduck have been much troubled for same days past over the discovery of a human thigh bone aud foot near the ruins of Cliff Cot tage. Several have thought it incumbent upon themselves to send communications to the -“■v -~ ' ---j --r> v apocryphal accounts of dogs who ran about the streets with human heads in their mouths.— The free circulation of absurd stories like this wrought a sort of panic in the minds of peace ful and law-abiding citizens, who conjured up visions ef murder the most foul. Yesterday morning Coroner J. S. Gould went over to Poo duck to investigate the circumstances. He made a full and impartial investigation, as is his custom, and elicited the fact that the hones were a portion of the left lower extremity of a medical “subject” which Dr. C. A. King had procured for anatomical purposes. The bones had been placed upon the roof of a shed at tached to Cliff Cottage, to bleach. The wind bad swept them off into the snow and they had become buried up. After the burning of the Cottage they were found. Then persons who had much leisure and little discretion magnified a thigh and an ankle bone into a gory head, and supplied from their heated imaginations a dog to trundle it about the streets; causing thereby much trouble and annoyance to the owners and denizens of the Cottage.

The Brooklyn detectives say that the man ner of Charles Goodrich’s death is no longer a mystery, but that the cause and the circum stances are still unknown. It is conceded that the woman so often mentioned in the case kill ed him, and to capture her seems to be the only effort the police are making.
