A singular link in the chain of circumstances which led !to the;. arrest of Fred,, Stoll, the young baker, for the murder of Maggie McCarthy, at Cleveland, 0 .., is that his clothing was found to bo covered with cat hairs, which correspond in color to those shed by two cats which fought in tho yard where the crime was committed. The ground where Maggie's body, was found is almost covered with these hairs, and .it is thought that the baker got them' on his clothes during the struggle with tho unfortunate girl. Stall returned home late Saturday night bare headed, but can give no satisfactory explanation as to where his Jiat was lost. Tho police feel confident that fie is the guilty party. Foreign.

The Standard says: Sir Henry Drummond Wolf, British Commissioner to Egypt, has fixed the time for the evacuation of Egypt by the British at five years hence. A Soldier In Three Grand Warn. A reporter., has. discovered that Charles Ileyser, who was a carrier of private dispatches for Abraham Lincoln, and held the president's hand when he lay wounded in Ford's theater, Washington, is in this city in distressed circumstances, writes a Pittsburg correspondent to the New.
