Tbe tarda did not tell half tbe atory. and tbe family of Ins bride, forgetting that ahe will hereafter. In a Society sense, be before tbe public, not to aay tbe epoblic, endeaTored to keep details from tbe gen Ira ear tbe reportorial ear In particular. It wai la easy matter, however, for our representative to sassier tbe preliminaries. An Immense circle knew and could easily grow eloquent upon tbe loveliness of tbe bride. TH MIDI, Visa Annie Matilda Hulbert, scarcely tamed nineteen and in tbe first flush of American woman- stood, has been a perfect specimen of tbe delicate type ef beauty which makes American girlhood stmoos all tbe wide world over. Hiss "TUlle," as toe wu Affectionately known In the select circle entitled to familiarity, has reigned like a fairy . f ueen wherever she has moved. Seemingly ethe real, but in reality only petite, lithe and graceful St birth-mark of her nationality ahe has looked at of dark-blue eyes, from nnder a wealth of Kght-folden hair. In which one might really, with Owen Haridetb, catch . , AGllmpseof the dying- sun," upon many an abject slave. And to her rare per. sonal gifts she has added a character tender, strong and true e, gentle, unselfish, womanly devotion to brother, father and mother that made It natural tat there should be tears as well as blessings when the time came for all interested to realize that in this world tbe old home, alas I must away, and that Nature dictates provision for new household gods to succeed the filial pemata.

No. 609 Freeman street, last evening, and the parti colored ' lanterns among the veteran forest trees surround- teg it, told that one of tbe daughters of tbe Manor was being "given in marriage" to the man of her Choice. All theso things, as we have said, wire Blatters easily obtained, bat in the case of a family who evidently did not Indorse the maxim that - "Kings and Queens may not marry or even die In private" the further Interesting details were dim cult of obtainment - THX rTEMOJfY.- The ceremony was performed at half-past five 'clock precisely, in the spacious souttf-esrt parlor at tbe home, in the presence of about two hundred of the twelve hundred invited guests. The Eight Rev. Bishop Jagar, of the Southern Oblo Diocese of the Episcopal Church, in full canohl- aala, officiated according to the impressive ritual f that body.

A floral wedding-bell bung in front, and ceiling and floor and wall were dressed In keeping, with smllaz, flower and green awnirfeflra.

The bridal dress, of heavy silk, waa a wonder of elaboration, bnt was also grace itself, and trimmed . with natural flowers. With the traditional veil and range-blossoms Miss Hulbert was the poet and painter's Ideal of a bride. - The dresses of the bridesmaids were, like that of the bride, of white silk, and vied with hers In trace and elegance. The lout ennemble, in short rivaled that of any wedding scene ever witnessed xa. Cincinnati. THE FRESEXTS Were not displayed, but our reporter learned of few deserving of especial mention, where all were costly and elegant. For instance, solitaire diamond ear-rings from the bride's parents of phenomenal sue ana omiiancy. a magnificent silver tea-set from tbe bride's brothers, George and Harrie, while exquisite flowers were mingled with the more substantial offerings in a thousand artistic shapes. The latter. Indeed, seemed superabundant offerings of love, for Crtlchell had already "out-Haroded Herod" in this respect In Bia ornamentation of the parlors, as if Endeavoring to outshine In the esthetic department, tne marvelous efforts of Keppler. who attended to "tbe suhstanlal entertainment of the early twelve hundred guests who subsequently attended the reception. fHl GUEST. These latter represented the wealth, the eul-watb, and the fashion, of our city but the Mawrvad among them all wera the Attorney-Beneral of tbe United States and his exqutrltely aoQetted wife, a distinguished looking couple, and worthy of the universal attention paid th'em. They tven divided attention with the "bonnie, bonnie bride, " who is, we believes to be their gnent at the Capital of the nation during her wedding tour, srpon which she did not leave, after the Insane fash-Ion of the generation, after the fatigue and excite-saentof her nuptials; on which, when she does leave, she will be followed with as many "God bless yous" as ever followed a new-made wife pon her first voyage upon the sea of matrimonial tie. A Happy Old ttal; "How is ye, old times?" was tho salutation given the officers of the Central Police Station, about 10 'dock last night, by a saddle-colored feminine With one leg shorter than the other, as she limped to the front of the desk. "We're pretty well, thank yon," was tha response of the Lien-tenant on duty. "Kin I suy here all night?" waa tbe neat query of the damsel. "Not by a JugfuL" replied the Lieutenant, "you will have to go to tha nammond or Bremen -street Station-houses, we have quit keeping lodgers." "You don't told me so!" ejaculated the applicant "I have told you so," responded the official, "See here, boss, dls yeah's a hard case." implored the woman, as ahe laid her "gripsack" on the floor: Isa bin a work in' fer a family np on Walnut Hills, an I work a hull wees, and dey won't give me no wage; an Til jist see em flyln' afore I'll be der slave fer nuffla." "Ton have a perfect right to salt your place," said the Lieutenant, "but Ws have no place hare to keep you, and you'll have to go either to the Bremon'itreet or Hammond-street house, as I told you before." "I doesn't know whar dey la," objected the lady, who by this time had seated heraalf on her plunder, and seined very adverse to moving on. "Well, go along Ninth street until you coma to Race, then torn op and go over tha Rhine, and the first police-Saan you meet will ahow you where Bremen street Is," directed the Lieutenant 8ba peered earnestly into the Lieutenants face for a moment and then In a slow, inquisitorial voice said. "Ober de Rhine? Eoney, what does yon take ma farT" "I take you lor a woman who wants to get a shelter to sleep in." waa tha answer. "But not ober da Rhine," was tha reply; "bean's whar I dona stop manysde Bfrht, an' beah'a -whar I want see stay." "But I tell yon you can't stay hare." responded tha Lieutenant, half huffed at tha woman's obstinacy. "All right dan," aha answered, rather surlily, as 1L took up her valise aa4 started for tha A Fin Horse. We had the pleasure yesterday, at tha Empire Stables, of examining Cue of the finest specimens of the equine race that we have seen for many a day the trotting horse Eric. This fine animal was foaled on the fax in of J. H. Bryan, near Lexington, Ky., in May, ISTi He was sired by Erricsson out of Dlllard, second dam by Black Denmark and third dam by Blackburn's Whip, and is the finest colt of his getting. In color he Is a dark-mahocauy bay, and ha stands sixteen hands high. His head is unusually small -for an Erricsson colt, his eye is very Intelligent, his barrel round as if turned in lathe, his chest wide.1 deep and full, and he h great propelling power. When two years old he broken by his owner, Mr. Bryan, and at once showed a turn of speed. The next year he waa worked sixty days as a three-year-old, and showed that there waa (tuff in him. Last 1st of Msy he was put In tha charge of MIL Bowennan. Mr. R. B. Etraders driver, and under his management his good points were speedily de veloped. In thirty days' time he made a mile in 2:47 thirty-three days lata he trotted a mile in 2 and repeated it in 2:36?; ninety days after Mr. Bowerman commenced to handle him he showed at the string In 2:33. Last fall at the Lexington meeting, he won the 2:30 raoe in 2:83, 2:32 2:32,'. In the four-year-old race, he made his mile in2:2s;i though he only trotted the first Quarter of it in 42 or a 2:48 gilt This mile be finished. too. In a jog. Great thing are expected of him In tbe future, and it would not surprise old turfmen If he made a record below 2:20 next season. He is now on his way to his new owner, Robert Bonner, of the Ledger, who has purchased him for a greater sum than has been paid for any other horse in Ken tucky this year.

The Board of Education met last night in regular session, with President Hargitt in the chair, and transacted the following buMnem: The Committee en Claims reported the following bills, with a reccommendation for their payment which, on motion, was received and recommendation adopted : Frederick Egery, for printing . t6 00 Favorite School-desk Company, for seats 46 S6 W.

Atone of tbe tneetinen when tbe Board was divusrina thi amount of the salary, the Superintendent A. Ki lls, arose and Informed the Hoard that be thought t;23 per annum was little enongh. and said he was not speaking for himself, as he did not intend tak ing one cent lor his aerrices. 1 nis point was raised, aud on motion the bills of the Examiners were laid over until tne next meeting. The fullowin renort from tbe Vifitine Commit tee was submitted, received, and ordered entered on the minutes: "To the Board of Education, fcc-: "Your Committee appointed to visit the schools submit the following report: ahe Chairman of the Committee has vUated recently all the schools of the city except the colored schools and reports them in a mtisfacuirv condition. The attendance has. for the last term, been fully np to the average. and satisfactory progress seems to have been made. Teachers are diligent in the discharge of their duties and generally good order and reasonable on the part of the pupils are apparent The various rooms in both the old and the new buildings are kept in good condition by the janitors. In fine the schools may be said to tie in a healthy and prosperous condition." The Board then took np the majorirv and minority reports of the Committee on Buildings and Repairs in relation to the dangerous condition of the becond Word School Building, which had been made the special order of business. Martin was in favor of the minority report, but desired an amendment which shojild provide for the replartertng of all the rooms in the building. Brown took the opposite view, and declared the rooms dangerous. He took tbe ground that tbe building was very dangerous in case of fire, as the facilities for the egress of the children in such a case was not sufficient. He was oppiwed to replavtering. and if the building was to be further used for school pur-pocs he would be in favor of ceiling it with boards, aa recommended by Bennlng-hofen in his minority report On motion, both reports were received and ordered placed on file, and the further discussion thereof postponed Indefinitely. In support of this motion Mr. Matthias said he was opposed to expending another cent on the building. That the Board didn't seem prepared to take any action just now in relation to the matter, and he knew that tbe time was not far distant wheu the Board would have to build a new house in the Second Ward; that there will sooner or later have to bo built or purchased a central High School; that thia postponement would give the Board and citizens time to talk over the matter and come to some agreement Mr. Hamann was not in favor of postponing the matter. He thought if the building was in the condition aa reported by The Committee some action should be taken immediately, and favored Mr. Martin's plan. On motion the Board agreed to visit the building to-day in a body. Hargut said that providing of additional school room was a question which would force itself upon the Board and citizens at an early day. The time was not far distant when such room would have to be provided by this Board, and the sooner the better, and property could be purchased cheaper this winter than at anv future time; that he behoved Hamilton should be provided with a central H?gh School similar to the Hughes High School of Cincinnati or those of other cities.

The Tas-Levylag Power In ollnn. Charleston News and Courier. The Republicans hoot at tbe idea that the Con STvatives will refuse to pay taxes to the Chamberlain Government. They ray that the Charleston meeting, and the exhortations and declarations of the prea are words, aud nothing more, how that tiie Senate and Mackey House have adjourned, tbe expenses of their Government, they say, will not be great. They will pay no interest on the public! debt, and couut on getting from the Conservative tax-payers enough to ke-p their bauditti in good humor. They confess that the- Conservatives can starve 'era out If they choose, but they profess to be confident that lack of unity and earnestness will cause that policy to break down before the timo when the taxes are payable. For once the Republicans mistake the temper of the Conservative cilixeus. These are resolute, and banded together aa never before. and they have the law at their back. One branch oi the uenerai Aswmniy can not make laws, nor can an usurping Governor approve them so as to Sve them authority and force.
