Aa the fifth dar of August approaches tha Democrate everywhere eeem to be awakening to a sense of the oevolv-tng apon them with regard to the lectio a of a State Treasurer and members ef the General Astern lily, and with tbe good work now wtll under headway the leaders believe that aa full a vote as could be expected will be polled. The Uteres felt ia the campaign by the base of voters ia encouraging to tl: workers who have been recent iy labor-ins to excite that desirable feeling, aal they are now redoubling their effort. The State Central Corumitwe ha done one thins which ia calculated to knock the props from under the Le publicans. Tbe chief argument the. hare ad tu need against the Lemocntio nominee ia that a former Treasurer elected by, Democratic votes betrayed Lis trust and became a defaulter. A member of the Slate Central Committee aaid yesterday By springing Dick Tate's crime on all occasion their hope ia to draw votes frum the Democratic ranks to the young man who accepted the nomination declined by a number of older and better men in the lie publican party. Dut you never hear one of tha say a word about the enormous defalcations of JCepubhctn ex-t ofliciais, beside which all tue shurta'es of Democrat since the foundation the Government, become iwdrfiuiioant. The) btate Central Cotntuittee aa the Kepablicans were try in? to make such capital out of the defalcation committed by Tate, to refresh their snort nemonea by recalling a few of tlie ateaiings of It has, therefore, had printed a number of circulars lor distribution throughout Uie btete containing some facts gathered Iras the official report of the ex-Secretary of Die Treasury to Uie National House of Kepresenta lives- These facts are body blows to the publican, and the circulars have created coubteruatioa An their ranks."

The Democrats are being reminded that, although their votes may not be needed in the Legislative race in some ef tbe districts, every one should to the polls and east his vote so as to overcome the Republican majorities In the lections of tbe State where the g- o. p. and the gentlemen who engage in the bloody mountain wars rule tbe roost. The following additional speakers have been invited to take the stump here be-' tween now and election day. and most. If not all of them will do so Hon. Ed J. MeDermott, Samuel B. Kirby. Temple Finlay Bush, Ollie Speckert Eli H. Brown. David Buird and Charles Hulsewede. Mr. Hulsewede will be requested to speak at Eighteenth and Broadway, and will probably do so ob a date whioh will be fixed upon in a few These, together with the list published in yesterday morning's Courier-Journal, will make a most formidable array of talent and eloquence. The date already fixed are as follows Hon. Jo S. Blackburn, on Main street, between Fifteenth and Sixteenth, Monday evening. July 29. lion. Shackelford Miller, at Twrnty-alxth street and Portland avenue, Wednesday evening. "July 24. Other dates will be fixed upon to-day. and will be announced in to-mormw's Coorier-JoornaL Hon. Shackelford Miller will be the first to start the oratorical ball to rolling, and a large crowd is expected to greet him to-morrow even lag at Twenty-sixth and Portland avenue. The Rnndanna Democratio Club, of tbe Twelfth ward, will attend ia a body. It is said that Bolter Charlton Intends to take the stump in a few days to explain his English record to the Irish voters of the Seventh district. His be ing aa Englishman is making his road a very hard one with the sons of the luneraid Isle. The Eepublifan speaking announced to take place at Liederkram II all last night turned out to be an extremely tame affair. The speaker! advertised to pour oil on tbe flickering fire in the tireasu of the rank and file were Col. NT. O. Bradley, of Lancaster; Mr. A. flVilkon aad CoL Sam McKee, but two of them failed to be presents CoL Zkadley sent word in the afternoon that be would not be here nnt3 to-day, and Mr. Willson did not find it convenient to leave French Lick Springs in time to enthuse the faithful At does aboat 100 persons, mostly Bolored, bad assembled on the sidewalk, ana it becoming ascertained that CoL Bradley would not be present, it was Bedded not to open the hall. CoL Sam ilfiXej mooatgi a 6fj foods box, and amid there were about 1 2,000 Bepublic aa voters in and if there were not enough intelligent men in the number to entertain a crowd of the size around him, the party was indeed fallen low. CoL McKee said that even If the outside speakers, like CoL Bradley, could not manace to be preaent at a Ee publican meeting there was no reason why others should not talk, and be proceeded to make a speech of half an hour or more. Mr. Colon's enndidary for tbe office of State Treasurer, I'oL McKee insisted, was a very insignificant one-Pat Or roil, who followed CoL Mo Kee, made a speech in which he denounced the constitution of the Knighta of Labor and many i.ther workingmen's unions, the State Government, the City Council and School Board and all Democrat. Dmiley Sebree, colored, aLo spoke for some time, and although the speakers each held contrary views on some pointa. they all agreed that they would be much better pleased if the Republicans had the salaria attached to more offices. It was announced that there would be another speaking at Lie-derkranx Hall to-night, at which it was hoped CoL liradley would put forward his views, and that there wonld be a Republican meeting at beventeenth and Main streets baturday night. Collector Albert Scott was at his office early yesterday morning, which fact made the explanation of his absence of the day before, as made by Chief Clerk Riley, appear somewhat odd. Mr. Riley ia usually too busy attending to his work as Secretary of the Republican State Central Committee, and giving his advice gratia to applicants for places, aa well aa Republicans throughout the State in general, about what they ought to dot. to devote much time to the duties of the chief deputy, the salary attached to which place he is receiving. But he has heretofore been supposed to know scrnctliinz about the Collector's movements. The faith of manv in him as liavinx the conlidenoe of Mr. Scott was. however, very much shaken yesterday. Mr. Riley said that Mr. Scott had gone to the mountains to be absent several days, may lie a week. Pineville. be believed, being tbe Collector's chosen retreat. So. when Mr. Scott said yesterday that he had only been cut to Soutii Park and over the line in Nelson county, the most charitable construction put upon Mr. Riley's fetate-ment was that he really knew much kbs about' Mr. Scctt's affairs than he was accredited with knowing. Mr. Scott said he still had received no not ideation from Washington of the appointments of the storekeepers and gaugers whom he had recommended. TBI COLORED CAirDtDATX. Jesc Meriwether, the Republican nom inee of the Sixth district to oppose Hon. John Ryan, the present member of the Legislature, and the Democratio nominee for re-election, is the only colored candidate for any office in the State. There would have been none if the white Republicans, or Willsonites of the Tenth ward, had been able to defeat the Fitzbutler delegates at the primary election. The vioL-nt effort on the part of the Willsonites to force Meriwether off the track to make room for L. Simm. the man they favored for the nomi nation for the Legislature, has bred the hardest of hard feelings between the colored people and the disgruntled whites, which will greatly injure Meriwether's cnances. Jr ailing to force the nigger' as they call him now, out of the race. the white Kepubucans are carrying out their line and scarcely any of them ever say a good word for the old colored man.

Mrs. Simpson Dragged From a Guilty Love Back to Her Family. A Wealthy Farmer's Etndsomo Young Wife Who Baa Away With ry Labors'. David 3. Linn, a farmer ef some prominence residing near Midway, arrived in Jefferson ville yesterday morning in search of his daughter, Mrs. Sarah. Ann Simpson, who, ho says, eloped from her home two" weeks ago with Andrew J. Fitzgerald. Mrs Simpson left behind her a husband and a filtex-n-months-old child, while Fitzgerald abandoned his wife and three children. The matter waa placed, in the hands of Marshal Cole, who soon got track of the guilty ones, and found that they were stopping at a boarding-hoime kept by Mr. Puree 11, at Front and Missouri avenue. In JetTersonville. When the officer and Mrs. Simpson's father arrived at the house Fitzgerald wao absent at the oar works, where he has been employed since his arrival in Jefferson ville as a laborer in the saw milk Mrs. Simpson objected to returning, and requested that her paramour be sent for. When he reached the place Marshal Cole informed him that unless Mrs. Simpson returned with hex father, he would arrest both of them. He gare them five minutes to decide what they would do. The thought of going to jail soon brought Mrs. Simpson to terms, and bhe departed lor Midway with her lather, lea vine her lover in Jttlersouvilie, Mrs. bimpson is a woman of very pre possessing appearance, and is about twen-ty-nve years ot age. Her bus baud is said to te a farmer of seme means. Fitzgerald is twenty-seven years old. When at home be was employed aa a farm hand. By some means Mrs. Simpson became enamored of him, land listened to his entreaties to run away with him. So lar as can be ascertained, no attempt was maiie to obtain a marriage license in Jeffersonville. When they -reched there they snent several days at the Central lioteL where they registered as Andrew Jt FiUgcrald and wife. They soon discovered that the wages paid for laborers at tbe saw null would not pay tbe hotel hill when it became due, and moved to Mrs. PurcelTs. At this place they represented themselves as man and wile, and a sensation" waa caused when Marshal Cole revealed the true facta ia the ease. The woman's husband, Merritt Simpson, took the mttw philosophically and refused to make any Attempt to lollow up the guilty pair. Old man Linn was almost heartbroken over his daughter's conduct, and stated that the disgrace she had brought upon the family was almost killing her mother. COOL WEATHER COMINQ. The Signal Service Promises a Relief From the Heat The Tempera-tare Report For Yesterday. The weather yesterday, for the greater part of the time, was pleasant though the heat waa a little too strong about noon. Bain had been predicted, and ao-eording to all obtainable indications, official and unofficial, it should nave been here, but it did not come. The clouds came, and, for a considerable time, nearly all day, in factj precipitation was looked for, but that waa as far as it got. The mercury, however, did its duty, and under the influence of clouds and breezes, kept down to a very respectable figure. At 7 :1 7 a. m. the official thermometer registered 75 degrees at midday it bad climbed to 85J5, but at the evening read-ins It as at 74. The lowest puink about 3 a. was 73. In the West and Northwest the range waa from 52 to 5s, showing very cool weather, the vanguard of which has already reached Louisville, will probably be followed to-day by the main body in the shape of a cool wave, producing the coolest weather of the month. Ia the South there was not much change, the weather still being very warm. There was no heavy rain, except at Denver; where 1.18 inches fell during tlie twenty-four hours prededing the observation of yesterday morning. Tbe forecast Indicates rains in this latidude, and it is considered likely that Louisville will come in for a share, along with a- cool wave from the West and XortbwesU POINTS ABOUT PEOPLE. Hon. J. C. S. Blackburn was here yesterday, en route to Elizabeth town, where be speaks to-day. A dinner waa tendered him by a few friends at the lvndennis Club in the afternoon, after which he left for Hardin county. United States Marshal D. J. Burchett returned last night from a short recreation spent at his home in Laurel county. ite says be -is now ready for a year of hard work. Mr. A. O. Bavenaugh, the artist, has just completed for Mr. B. IL Ridgely a portrait of that gentleman's late wife, who died three months ago in the flush of young womanhood. The portrait is perhaps the" best that Rave-riaugh has done in Louisville. It is the full-size figure in a street costume of early spring, and was painted from a photograph of Mrs. Ridgely, taken when she was in the bloom of health i five years ago. ilie likeness is per- i icct, the coloring exquisite, ami uie picture, upon the whole, splendidly ef fective. Hon. M. Pendleton, of Hartford, Ohio county, the late Republican can didate for Concrete in the lourth dis trict, was in the city yesterday and paid his res pet: ta to Collector Scott.

There was a good attendance at Phoenix Hill last uiglit, where Mad. Selelka. arid Mr. Williams, the colored prima donna and barytone, appeared as soloists. These singers were beard lit Louisville last season. and while they did not meet with tbe reo cgnition they deserved, they made an excellent Impression upon tbe few who heard them. Mad. Seleika's voice is a high soprano, tbe upper tones of. wblch are remarkably clear and pure, and her pianissimo staging, especially in the upper register, is beautiful. Tbe low notes are melodious and vibrant, but the middle toues are not altogether pleasing, and are sometimes sharp and metallic bhe prefers florid music, which she executes with ease, but she- it lacking in the dash and vim necessary to bravura singing. Her best work lasit night was dene la the Verdi aria Ah Forse ltd, in tbe Echo Soug and In the encores, of Which tnere were several. Her singing in tbe duet from II Trovatore waa lacking in spirit, con- veylnf but a tame impression cf the uxa- matlo sltnation which calls it forth. Mr. Williams voice is a high barytone, full and rich, and he sings with expression and tore. His selections were the Wan dering Minstrel, by Msxsoni; Balfe's "If Thoa Couldst Knew, and the Norwegian wedding by Prraco Pontowski, end Tha PetreL the last two bains gives as encores. His part of the duet waa admirably sung. Otber numbers of tha programme were a march, an overture by buppe, Bandlten-strieche, selections from Knnlnie," Suppe's overture Morn, Noon and Night, a waits by Buccrkssl and the "Swallows' night" by Weigand, all of which were given by the orchestza under the direction ct Mr. khhorn, two cornet solos by Mr. W. O. Carroll and a sylophone solo by Mr. Fred Uumbser. Tbe next concerts win take place on the 31st cf July and the Sd of August. Mad. Selelka and Mr. Williams will sing, and Miss MeXelU and Mr. Knoll will have cornet solos. The Fresh Air Fand Benefit.

Tbe workmen at the Burkir.gham are making good progress in the refitting of the theater, August 6. The Triennial Club Is booked for another of its famous concerts on the steamer sunshine to-morrow night. These concerts grow in popularity as the season progresses, and are attended by tbe very best element of Louisville society. As Ubual. a fine programme has been arranged for the evening. The Musical Club had another rehearsal last night of the novel programme to be presented at Fboenix Hill lark Friday night. Indications point to a crowded bouse. In addition to the well known merit of this organisation, rendering their concerts most delightful affairs always, there is much curiosity to hear the pieces mentioned as being on the programme. Harris' Theater will not open on next Monday, as announced, on account of the non-arrival of the new opera chairs ordered. They will probably be here In a day or two, but Manager Osgood says ha prefers not to open the bouse until everything Is in perfect order, and has therefore postponed the opening until Monday, August 5. By that time everything will be In readiness. Tbe sale of seata for tbe Thompson Opera Company engagement will also be postponed for one week, beginning on Thursday, August 1. PICKED UP.

Raiors At a Colored Picalc. and a Xatiay Oa Board a Chartered Boat. The Hustlers, sometimes known aa the kiU-me-lf-you-can club, a colored organisation, gave a picnic at Fern drove yesterday. A ferryboat was chsrtered, and several hundred negroes from Louisville attended the picnic "shooters' flowed Lke water, and toward evening the wbole crowd was in fighting humor. A Ogbt, In which about twenty men and women participated, soon ensued, and during the scramble Belle Emmery cut Clarence Manuel in the shoulder. Peace was finally restored, but when the crowd boat-led the boat for the return trip the fight was resumed and Beile Emmery again wielded her knife with ertect. This time she cut Jim Malone, a private po- llreman, hi the hand. The Debt again became general and at least halt a dozeu negroes were injured, but not seriously. The Hustlers Anally concluded tbat they could dispense with the captain and pilot, and forcing them to land, the two steajn-boatmen were compellod to taUe to the Indiana woods. The drunken nrgroe tlmn manned the boat and brought it safely to Louisville. No arrests were made.

(Olobe- Democrat.) The very singular phenomenon familiarly known as the rain el frogs, has been ridt. euled and contradicted by some scientists, but there is obundant proof that such occurrence are by no means rare. One of the earliest narratives of this kind Is that communicated to the French Academy by ProL Pontus la ISO, in wblch he gives an account of shower of frog near Tuo louse, aad states that he himself saw numerous young frogs oa the cloaks of two gentlemen who were caught In the shower on the road.

Tbe day being exceedingly sultry, a halt waa mace for a rest of aa hour or two, sUen suddenly a dense black caud made its appearance, which soon begun to discharge a copious rain. Nearly every person hi the party wore a broad-brimmed tea bat, which provej a great protection against tbe rain, as Uiey bad already been aaiust the suu. 'i be attention of the travelers was soon arrested by a vigorous peulng of something which settled like ball.tones upon their sombreros, but which, greatly to their surprise, proved to be a species ol diminutive lrogs. in than two minutes Uie grass was fairly alive with these 11 tue They were all of one size, about a quarter ot an inch long, very lively, and apparently In the best condition, lbeir fall bad evidently been broken by the elastic, surunrv luun tu Alluding u. tbe Uieory advanced by some scientist, that In such cases tbe frogs must of necessity have arisen from tbe ground.

This was at first regarded by many as a hoax, but waa found to be a veritable oneurrence, although hardly rueeprible of a tbi.rougblv satisfactory ex-jilacatton. This nctd -lail" took place on the farm or Mr. Crouch, which waa in a Knot surrounded by high Mils and mountains, In Hath county, Ky, Tbe account eiv-n by Mrs. Crouch was substantially aa follows: Between 11 and li o'clock I was In my yard, not more than forty steps from tbe house. There was a light wind coming from the west, bus the si.v waa clear and the sun was shining brightly. Without any prelude or warning ot any kind, and exactly under these circumstances, the shnaer commenced. The fall was of no less than one hor more than two nilnutex duration. When the flesh began to. fall I saw a large piece strike the ground close by me, with a snapping-like noi when It struck. I was lmpresxed with the conviction that It waa a miracle or a -warning. The largest flee that I saw was as long as my hand and about half an inch wide. It looked grbdiy. aa If It had bo-m turn from the throat from some anlmaL Another piece that 1 saw was half round In shape and about tbe size of a half dollar." An old hunter, residing In the neighborhood, on being thown a piece ot the flesh, declared It to be Lear meal, and sUted that It had that uncommonly greasy feel' peculiar to the flesh of that animal. A butcher wbo waa persuaded to tte the meat changed his mind abont swallowing any of it. and that It ratet neither lit. flesh, fish or fowL It looked to hiut like mutton, but the smell was a new one. Some of Uie meat was quite dry, and there ccme-l to be a fine, wood like tl'ier running through It. A great deal of the flesh was sent to chemists and others in various parts of tbe country, and analyt were n-ada by several well-known scientists. Pmf. L. Smith waa at rlrst Inclined lo pronounce It Uie dried spawn of frogs, but as It waa found under the microscuto to posse undoubted rhjractrrl-dlrs peculiar to the flesh of animals, Ibfc theory was abandoneL lerhap the roust reasonable explanation Is that of prof. IVler, of Lex lngton, who believed the tall of Heih to be "Imply the result of a kind of post praudlal discnrging bv a flock of buzzards, who bad been feasting U.tfms'dves more abundantly than wlely on the rarrs of a sheep. This Is tbo simplest and perhaps, after all, the most satisfactory explanation that can be given of the supposed- miracle. tif shower of resects there are a few Instances on record, and it la undoubtedly true that tbe. socalled colored rain and snowstorms are In ninny ees caused by minute Insects and shells of Infusoria a tried tmo the atmosplere by the winds. It In a Jtnsslan newspaper of t'-e yer 1P27 that a hravy snowstorm occurred on th 17th of October In that year at lasroif. in the Government of Tver. This snnw wa4 accompanied by a prodigious number of black insects about an Inch long, with fiat beads antennae, a vlviy kind of shin, niarlu-d with rinps nr bands, aud feet which enabled them to-crawl rabidly over the snow.

There Is little mystery so-Hit these peculiar snowstorms, how-ever, since microscopic Investigations have from time to time proved them to be caused by cither portions of vsrious niiuerals, shells of Infusoria or pxrts of plants or fn-. ncts. Infusorial shells and aquatic plants of especial district bava been after having crossed the ocean ami been deposited in dust storms, thus tracing the course of the serial current. Khrmibcrg Is said to have found not less than different specie nf nrirtnlsms tn the dust of var'ous showers of which five were of msrtne origin. Humboldt and Lieut. a.ui, have also ires led larve.y on tuis topic. The saui'? general explanation that accounts for these showers applle also to the fall of living organism which have been previously men-Uoned. There seems to be little doubt that winds, whirlwinds and waterspouts sre the chief causes of these phenomena. The several flh shower thst have be reenriel were all preceded or accompanied by heavy a or a violent wind, what jg i termed en bnd whirlwind, or at sea a waterspout. There one ease, related In the Book of pays." of a colony of rats, while migrating in vast numbers from tbe high to the low countries of Norway, having teen overtaken by a whirlwind, tn which they were caught up and carried to a neiguboring valley, where the astonished and lorhaps terrified Inhabitants were treated to a veritable rat-shower. It has been suggested that tbe frogs which have fallen In this manner may have been really hatched tn the air the ergs having been drawn up Into the atmosphere by tbe action of a waterspout and held la suspension with aqueous particle long enough to hatch them out and give them perfect form, afterward returning -to te earth with tbe rain-drop In accordance with Uie law of attraction of gravitation. It Is, at all events, quite certain that other things beside vapor are oftentimes translated from earth to atmospher by certain well-known and accredited developments of natural laws.

It can not be maintained that the criminal romance Is elevating In lta tendencies. There is much mental and minute Introspection, but not in the manner of Wordsworth or Browning; and, although the author may be ail the better for a Shakespearean knowl edge of human nature, it Is his business to study msn In his shadier aspects. Even the criminal masterpieces of Uie immortal Baizae lo say nothing of Uie cleverest novels ot Uaboriau aud bolsgouey leave behind them a mingled flavor ot the alums, tbe morgue, tbe lad and the galleys. lt In oue sense the bei criminal romance belongs lo tbe higue.1 omcr of licuon. lt demands iunnite care and Intense conscientiousness. Uubinaon Crusoe-like Ingenuity end readiness of resource must be brought to Uie aid of a somewhat perverted or morbid uuaxlnalion. To wiu us author celebrity, or even credit, the linUhed work should be a marvel of constructive skill, with an exquisite adjusinieut of the details ot each part and an aU-pervsuliig sense of propor tion. Foresight should forestall destruct ive criticism, and foretliouEht should antici pate all plausible objection. The com plica led machinery, wuraitig smoothly on converging lines, should move sieadily and swuuy toward tua central point of denouement. We have Indicated tue quaiifleatlons ot the Heal sensational uovedat aud Uaborv- au, and even Boisgobey, have not fallen far short of them.

Uaboriau showed what be could do when he cared to avoid tbe fault In but admirable PeUt Vleux des BaUgnoUes. where the tours de force of detectlv strategy should have failed had tha genius of the lar-seeliig criminal had fair play.
