Sad Story of Jenny Untl'a ' ' . . ; : I was .speaking: the other day, with an elderly ' .Swedish gentleman about the stories one liuura in America of the ,8ensauoh Jenny Lind created therein ilSSp-H-of how people still told of hear- •ing her marvelous voice in the streets .outside the hulls : and churches in iwnlch she sung. He had known her since childhood, and Is an intimate 'friend -of an old gentleman still iliving in Stockholm who was the tenor 'in the old operiitio company she lirst ^belonged to away back in 1837, and .who was once engaged to be married .to her.' He told me many curious things of her later life. She is plain and white-haired now, with.; a severe .expression of 'countenance.''" She is very pious, and most .of , her talk is devoted. to bemoaning the daj's when she was sinful .enough to appear on the stage. ... She is Intolerant "toward young singers, sneering at their voices and thoir : vocation alike, "and rebukes any one whd ventures to address her by the name pf Jenny Lind— or even refers to the name. 1 was told .of a case some years, ago, when she was' visiting here in London, when her host brought to her a young Swedish soprano who had won fame and' respect in Europe and America, and was proud of this opportunity of paying homage to Jenny Lind. She made tho mistake of alluding to this name, and was so cruelly snubbed in consequence that Mine. Goldschmidt wiis never again asked to that house, — London 'Letter in the New York Times. ;.

The Missouri legislature yesterday decided against removing the capital of the State to Sedalia. Addison Watrous, a prominent dry goods merchant of Waverly, N. .Y., shot himself through the heart. Chief of Police Halloran, of \East St. Louis, inaugurated measures yesterday to rid the city of tramps. James Lewis, a prominent citizen of Rockford, drowned himself in a fit of insanity at that place Tuesday. Twenty persons perished Tuesday evening by the burning of a steamboat on the Tombigbee river, in Alabama. A conflagration in .the village, of South Boston, Halifax,cpuuty, Va., Tuesday, consumed fifteen buildings. Total loss $130,000. : Au immense body of natural gas was struck at Hartford, City, Ind., Tuesday. The well is the strongest yet drilled in the State. David Smeltzer was killed by a Cincinnati.Wabash & Michigan tram atLagro, Ind., Tuesday. The man was drunk and lying on the track. Trouble has broken out in the colored college at Nashville, ,Tenn. Upwards of 100 students have revolted against the manage rs and the latter refuse to honor a demand .that they abdicate. The Province of Newfoundland is represented as being on the verge of rebellion against England because of the fisheries troubles. The question of annexation to tho United States is being soberly discussed, and it is claimed that if the proposition were to be submitted to popular vote, it would carry by a three-fourths majority. Some New York bankers are petitioning for the appointment of Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Fairchild to succeed Manning. With Manning and Jordan running a national bank in New York City, and their crony : runuing the Treasury Department, they ought to have a rich thing. No wonder the stock of their bank is 50 per cent, above par before its doors are opened for business. The opinion is growing among students of revenue systems that it would be better not to attempt to find and tax money, notes, bonds and other securities at all, and find a compensation in a tax on rentals, as suggested by Prof. Ely, of Baltimore, and advocated by JOavid A. Wells, of New York. A rental tax is a, personal one. It presumes that a citizen's condition is pretty fairly typified by the value of the house he resides in—levied on that. It is true, rich men sometimes live in cheap houses, and men of small means live in fine ones, but the rule is good in general—and it would not only be simple and easy, but would yield a much larger revenue than the system of taxing personalty that cannot be found. XUMBBH 285; Daring, IMmpJprt A young lady of this city whose constitution lind been hurt by "too ranch »1«- votion to the piano and tile painting was Induced by her mother to engage fn hunting squirrels, the reward offered being 10 cents a scalp, says the Oakland (Gal.) Tribune. The hills about Berkeley and Oakland have furnished her with abundant upon. Lust week she slaughtered eighty-live squirrels, and the outdoor exercise in restoring her health. A capital idea this. Much better than taking human sculps sentimentally speaking, in heated ballrooms. Our women do not take enough exercise. They should walk shoot and lish. There are a few, a wise few, who love long tramps with the gun and rod, who can climb fences,, scorn poison oak, and never hesitate about wading a stream if fish or feather is to be found on the other side. I have seen them with a light, single-barreled breach- loading gun—and »nch guns arc now manufactured for ladies—bringdown a quail with a snap-shot in the brush and spring up the canyon side to attack the rest of the. bevy. They would not scream if they saw a rattlesnake, und they disdain prudery when a big fence has to be climbed. They are not ashamed of the graceful well-developed limbs that nature gave them, which they envelope in strong leather gaiters to protect them from mud and thorn. Their cheeks are ruddy, their eyes bright, their arms strong, their lungs perfect, their stride and spring graceful as a deer's, but never unwomanly. At noon these Diana's, under the shade of a spreading tree, enjoy a hunter's lunch with a gusto that the dainties of the ice-cream saloon and French restaurant never provoked. At night they sleep soundly, and dream of landing huge fish and making enormous bags. They love nature and she repays their affection four-fold. I should like to see a lady's gun club organized just for a change from tile clubs, and dado clubs, and banjo clubs. After one season there would be no pale cheeks, or 'pimples, or lusterless eyes, or contracted chests, or weak lungs among its members. There would be perfect women, who,, when the time came, and the hunters were themselves pursued and captured, would be the mothers of a raoe of heroes. • I am going to consolidate my two establishment*, and have to make room for new goods,and offermy entire stock, from now until March 1st, at Prices BELOW Gost ^^^^^^^^^^^•^•••••ifc . - "^^^^ -. ^l^^.'^Hi^ .^igF Everything must go to save cost of moving and storing Die-ware, Cutlery, Stoves, Hardware, Tinware, Granite-ware, Locks, Springs, and eve* ly thing kept in any hardware store.

WASHINGTON, March 2.—Senate— The Secretary of war furnished documents connected with the surrender of Georrnimo.

Hewitt, tho Demo* cratio Mayor of New York City, says, m an interview in tho Brooklyn Eaqle: Either the Knights of Labor, or the Democratic party must go under, be* osuse their (fundamental principles are In absolute antagonism to each other. Tne former body is organized on milin tiry principles, and is necessarily a despotism. The knights have announo I'd that they are going into politics to put in practice their secret methods and absolute control of their members. This will compel tho Democratic party either to surrender or to fight. 1,000 KEGS OF STEEL NAILS! at factory Prices.
