A Woman's Struggle "With an Assailant Arrest of the Offender.

A dastardly attempt at outrage upon a German woman, living as a domestic In a fashionable quarter of the city, was made early yesterday morning, by a colored servant In the house. The woman, with great courage and with desperate strength, prevented the accomplishment of the purpose for which the villain assaulted her. The facts connected with the caso are as follows: About220o'clockyestcrday morning, the woman, who was asleep with her child, awoke, and became conscious of a hand upon her breast. She at hrst thought that it was her child, but quickly perceived her mistake, and following tho hand up she felt a man's features, pushed back his hat and rclt a woolly head. She sprang from the bed and looked for matches in the place where they were usually kept, but tho cunning ncgru had rc- moveu mem.

She attempted to scream, but he threatened to cut her throat. She sprang back in the bed and began a most desperate struggle with her assailant. During the great effort which she made to free herself from the grasp or the man, she toro trom THE BOSOM 07 BIS SI1IRT a piece of the material of which It was made. Her persistent assailant finally tired or the effort, orelsc became afraid that he would be discovered, and made his escape from, thepartment- It was afterwards discovered that he had entered the lnutc through the coal hole In the pavement and crept to the room. 1 lie woman at the time became very certain, although It-was too dark In the room to distinguish ieatures.

that the man was the servant in house, named Theodore Watklns. She communicated her suspicions when she told of the assault that had been made upon her. List evening, when Watkins went up stairs to one of the rooms In answer to the bell, he found Detectives McDevltt and McElfresh. He was known to them, and showed signs of weakening when he saw them. The officers made him show them his undershirt, and found that a piece or vrsttx corresponding to the piece torn out by his intended victim had been sewn into the bosam of his woolen shirt.

He was taken into custody and locked up for his appearance to-day. Watkins was found concealed in the house once before, under very suspicious circumstances, after having pretended to (ro away for some time. On the 30th of May he obtained a leave of absence, and has been away from the house ever since until yesterday morning, when he entered It by of the coal hole. His reputation for honesty is not good. He was arrested some time ago by Detective McElfresh, for stealing a sum of money from his employer, and be has stolen since he has been employed In his present position.

He Is a large, full-blooded negro, with skin as black as coal. WASHINGTON'S MONUMENT. Address to the People of the United States. The following address Is presented to the public. In the hope that the enterprise may be completed this year.

An annex to Horticultural Hall has been opened within the last few days, containing rhododendrons exhibited by an English florist. These shmbsareso seldom In perfection In our dry climate that the beauty and profusion or this collection astonishes every one. The whole place echoes with oh's and ah's and admiring gasps from the fair sex, while the men assumethat Olympian air, natural to them when regarding flowers. Every tint Is seen from the palest flu'h or dame to deep rose and carmine that fairly Intoxicate the senses with their perfect coloring. The bashes seem ono mass of blossom, and their profusion Is as wonderful as thelrjierfectlon.

These rhododendrons are the best part of the Horticultural exhibit, and I understand are to be purchased either by Central Park or Falrmount Park for ornamental purposes. The ravine between Horticultural and Agricultural halls Is bridged by an elevated railway track, and the ear is always filled with people anxious tu understand the latest method of locomotion. A fine display of Bermuda vegetables and Jamaica fruits can be seen In Agricultural hall. The air Is redolent with the perfume of oranges, lemons, plantains, bananas, pine apples, mangoes, shaddocks, citrons, manee apples and sugar cane. The size of this year's Bermnda potatoes and onions astonishes our horny-handed almost as much as some wheat from regon, that was In the sack ninety days after 11 was planted.

This building is always filled with sun-browned men, consciously happy in their Sunday clothes and now boots, and their buxom wires carrying a basket or satchel or lunch. Their delight at the things exhibited here Is hardly equaled by the Joy of the demonstrative visitors to the art gallery. a siw ntuiT JAR Is exhibited In mammoth sizes, each ono contain ing a hundred pounds or beautirnl.looklng fruits. Crosso and Suickwell have a great stand filled with most delicious pickles and choice apples from Mlcblgan.and Australia to tantalize the appetites of those who see and smell them. A syren, a variety of fog horn, belonging to the lighthouse board.

Is used to give the slgnajs for Opening and closing the Exhibition, and thnughout the day sample strains are blown rrom it to satisfy the curious loiterers. Nothing-more hortible In the way orsounds was ever heard, combining, as It does, the worst qualities of the steam calliope and ungreased wheels. Jn the French galleries of the annex no changes bad been effected over night, and It does seem as though the Oauls supposed the exhibition would not really open ror a month yet. The most comical picture in their part of the annex Is ono entitled the "Friends of the House." One ridiculous little monkey on a table has been showering down plutcs and vases at his grimacing companion on the floor, and now alms a beautiful dish at the cat that, with Its waving tail and arched back, comes upon the scene. The vindictive energy or the monkey on the table and his poor crouching companion on the floor are periect pictures of monkey Hie.

A-plctnre called THE "RAILROADTRAIX" 'Shows two horses frightened by the engine, who rear and kick in a dreadful way, atmost unseating the hatless rider, who Is trying to control bot or them. A "Fellah Woman," by Landrelle, turns her wonderrul brown eyes upon the gazer, and fascinates one with tbetr beauty. An "Inquisition Scene" makes ones flesh creep. The poor heretic lies on the floor with an agonized countenance. Over him stand the holy brethren, one with extended crucifix, another with pen and paper to take down the confession wrung from him by torture, other spiritual advisers bind him to the rack and hold a brazier ot live coals to bis feet.

All of these cheerrul little Incentives to re ligion are admirably expressed by the brush or the artist. The daughter of Herod, with the head or John the Baptist, Is another picture or Novdocs. "The Prodigal Son," with his herd of swine, presents another Bible story In moving style. An allegorical picture represents "Cresar" on abeau-tllui charger, trampling on the prostrate bodies of men and women. At his side are two skeleton figures, with their destroying scythes; above htm a lury with lighted torch, and behind him bis miserable captives, his victorious army and the burning walls or a city.

The Italian exhibits In the annex consist or pictures, statues and mosaic tables and pictures. Among the marble pieces three or the finest are "Phreyne," "Berenice" and Free Italy." The "Phreyne naked" Is the most exquisitely beautllul made piece In the collection, and the only fault In It Is the too sensuous expression or the face. BERENICE, WITH EXTESDED ARUS, holds her beautiful hair, and Is represented in the act of vowing: "Venus, to thee and other God's I sacrifice these tresses, Should'st thou return to me from war, my The magnificent pose of the whole figure and tha spirited countenance make the Berenice an Impressive work or art. "Free Italy," In the guise or a Roman conta-dlna, stands proudly erect and casts off tho broken chains of bondage. Appropriately enough, just behind herstands a fine bust of Garibaldi, in the shirt and knotted handkerchief of the Carbonari.

A magnificent "Lucirer" represents the noble and god-like arch-fiend of Milton and Byron. A bronie bust, with the head and shoulders draped In snowy marble, shows a decidedly African Othello, sorrowfully gazing at Desdcmona's kerchief, which he holds in his swarthy hands. In this same room are two large paintings the one representing "Galileo Before the Inquisition," and the other "Columbus a Prisoner." The greater part of the Italian paintings are copies from the old artists, and wholo walls are lined with madonnas, saints and crucifixions. One of their pictures caused a little surprise to Protestsnt visitors, and would seem to be slgnlfl-eantof the name or religious authority In Italy. Two choir boys.

In their lace and silk rubes, sit In a retired part of CHCRCH, PLATISO CARDS. On the bench between them stands the communion wine, and the censer, with its dying embers. Is cast upon the floor. Some or the cards hare slipped to their feet, and from the listening look of the faces the padre is evidently coming that way. The Italian artists seem to have Imbibed, the spirit of classical art so popular among the modern painters of England.

There are four or Are pictures from ancient life oneaPompellan scene, where the beautiful women are making wreaths of flowers to wind around the pillars and the arches of the fluvlum; a beautiful rompcllsn woman, In CTeamy chllalnys and scarlet pcplam, languidly caresses a greyhound and watches the others, who bury themselves with the flowers. In two companion pieces a man Is dancing along blowing the rustle pipe of reeds, and a woman Is wreathing the bust of Pan (n flowers and vine leaves. A cunning little statuette called the Forced Prayer," shows a little child with tears and pouts, angrily sobbing, "Now I lay me down to sleep," In sort Tuscan. In the "Birth of Love," a comical little cupId Is climbing out of a large eggshell of marble, and smiling up In the face of the gazer. Another antique, scene shows the studio or "Laja, a noble Roman woman." who Is "making a portrait or Julius Cssar as Apollo." Ciesar, In scanty attire, stands before the beautiful artist, who Is sketching the outlines on her canvas under the surveillance of her pater familias.

It Is lo be hoped that the Roman woman was inoro successful In making a godlike portrait of the conqueror than the modem Italian artist who executed this one. A "GKEIX-ROOir SCEXE" represents a tearful young debutante, who has cast herself upon the floor, being Jeered at-for her disappointment at her failure by the other members of the company, A theatrical-looking picture was labeled In almost Illegible type something about King Manfred, of Sweden, dying of starvation at the door of a convent. The gaunt figure of the king, in red hose and black cloak, lies In the snow on the steps of the convent. The races or the well-red monks, who stand In the doorway, present a sharp contrast to the pallid and emaciated features of tho dead king. The "Decollation of St, John" lost all Its sacred meaning to me from the fact that my companion read off the title as the "Collation of St.

John," and then fell to naively wondering at the sense or such a name when the saint had his head on the block. Her chagrin on discovering her error was as amusing as the blunder. The -Doves of St. Marc" Is the title of a Venltlan scene, where a party of tourists are feeding these cherished birds with papers of corn, bought for the purpose. The doves are whirling down In scores tu partake of the feast.

Passing through the corridor or Memorial Hall I saw wnat supposcu to oe lac coninuuuous oi tuc Pope. A full size corr or RArnxzL "head buna della Segglola." Jn the finest ol mosaic work, and three other large pictures of an. dent ruins In the same work. Story's "Medea" Is still In IU wooden case, but even the unsatisfactory view of It now to be had affords more pleasure than any other statue yet shown. Its beauty grows upon one and every succeeding visit to It, but deepens the first impression.

The hands are magnificent In their expressive model-ling, and are only surpassed by the hands ot Michael Angelo's "Prisoners or Slaves." The firm pose and noble draperies are both the perfection of art, and it only remains for It to be once properly placed to eclipse any other exhibit In the way of sculpture. The leviathan soldier In front of the main building looks much better upon a cool day when In the shade' than It did on the hot afternoon when I first saw it with the sun glaring on Us white surface almost hot enough to calcine it. The large fountain between the Main and Machinery Hall is at last finished. It Is entirely or Iron, and painted green, touched with gold. At the base are spouting dolphins, above them three females In breezy draperies, support the inevitable saucer on the tips ot their fingers, and above the saucer some nondescript beings of aquatic mythology are prepared to spout streams of water to fabulous heights.

In about a month or so more the Exhibition will be completed, but some of the nations, notably France, Russia and Turkey, will only have their sections completed In time to take a few weeks' rest before Christmas.

de Carralllo Bor-ges, Brazilian Minister, visited the National College for Deaf Mutes, on Kendall Green, In the northeastern suburbs, where they were received by General John Eaton, the Commissioner of Education, by whom the officers of the Institution were presented to thedlstingul8bed visitors. President Gallaudet briefly explained the scope of the Institution In answer to the Emperor's pertinent Inquiries, while pupils from the primary department trnoTs: orioikal exxbcises, which the Emperor read and commended. Words of welcome were then written by representatives of the college classes. We can give only a few extracts. A freshman wrote We welcome you.

not merely as a formality, nor because It Is the first time a foreigner or so honorable and responsible a position as yourself has thus honored our Institution, but because we deslro that yonr visit shall be one ofpleasure, Interest and profit. Our only regret Is that we have not the honor and pleasure or extending our welcome to her Majesty, the Empress. As you hare come early, -we kindly ask you to stay late." A sophomore it rote "we ADUtnx Tom roncr, activity, and the pleasure you are taking In your visit to our country, it would give us great pleasure to entertain you, and to makeyou adeaf mute for awhile. If thereby the mutes of Brazil might be benefited." Anotherstndent wrote: "Tho silent manifestations on every side speak louder than my works can or the cordial greeting extended to you, sire, and of the pleasure felt at your visit. Recognized as a strong and zealous advocate of learning, an eager participant In whatever tends toward the advancement or civilization whose manifold blessings aro already blooming In the sunny land of Brazil we trust that this institution, OXE OF CIVILIZATION'S FAIREST FRUITS, will disclose to yon the Importance of Its work: act as a plea for the deaf mutes of your empire." A senior wrote "It is a great privilege to be allowed to study, to learn, to be educated.

Happiness requires it, beauty of character demands It, and pureness of spirit needs It." Another senior gave some entertaining examples of pantomime, after which the Emperor personally tested the attainments of some of the classes by ei ercL'es ot on impromptu character in Latin, algebra, chemistry and astronomy, and took for luture Inspection specimens of papers written by the students at the regulsr examinations. Just before his departure tho Emperor performed a beautllul act In a very graceful manner THE PLASTIXO OF AX IVT. He received the vine from tho hands of the vcn. erable widow of the lounder or the first dearmute Institution in America the voiceless mother or President Gallaudet planted It skillfully, and plucked rrom It some leaves as a tourcnirofhls visit. The Emperor seemed to be highly interested In all that ho saw, and certainly bis Intelligence, appreciation, kindness and suavity won the hearts of all he met on Kendall Green.

Dom Pedro's Visit to tha Kindergarten. The kindergarten oi Misses Nocrr and Pollock received a visit yesterday from his Imperial Majesty Dom Pedro. He fonnd the children Just alter they had finished their gymnastic plays, seated, ready, with sleeves stripped up, to begin their modeling in clay. Miss Pollock first asked tho children a few questions as to the various uses that are made of clay, how many different kinds there arc. and where It Is found.

Then they were requested to make a perfect sphere, which they did with eager delight. After that they had to flatten two sides to change It Into the geometrical figure called a spheroid. Alter this was done each child was left tree to make anything It liked with the c'ay. His Majesty was shown various specimens of different kinds or work done by the children In the kindergarten, and expressed himself very much gratified by what he saw. At 430 o'clock, tho Emperor accompanied by the Empress and suite.

In one case In particular I noticed the wonderful effect of, About the year 1M7, a young man, then sixteen 'ears old, who was a distant relative of mine, came ion.e from sea. lie had injured his left leg on beard the (hip some mouths before, and when the ship came into this port became to my house, being fetblc that he could not go to hU home In Lowell.

Ills leg was swollen aboc the knee more titan twice Its naturaL size, and he was obliged to drag it along afterhlm, bavlngnouseof ltwuAteTer. The effect of this had htm to a mere skeleton. Ills father came down and employed Dr. George Hay-ward, of Boston, toattenu him, who then occupied a pomlnent position In the Massachusetts ircneral Hospital, lie pronounced It a bad case of Necrosis; said lie must be removed to the hospital, have Ids leg opened and the bone bored, to allow the discharge of maiter there collected; otherwise the leg must be amputated. 2ot thinking It advisable to pursue tfcls course, and having used Vlgetxne, the Ureal Blood Kcin-edy.

In the past with so good effect, concluded to try It In this case. After taking It regularly for six weeks, his leg was bnt little swollen, and his general health so much Improved that he did not Took like the tame person. At the end of Ave months he went home toXowell perfectly cured. He remained In Lowell nntll the commencement of the war; then Joined the army and was pronounced a sound and well man. The above Is but one caso out of many where I have seen this Blood Kemedy used with, unparalleled success.

1 have taken it myself for twenty years, more or less, for dyspepsia and general debility, and It always appeared to give me new life and vigor. One lady boarder was completely cured from canker humor, after she had suffered for years, and tried almostevcrythtng else without receiving any benefit. Another lady was cured from, liver coin flalnt, which was a bad case, and so considered by he many physicians who had attended her from time to time. I have known Its use "by other boarders for rheumatism, with extraordinary good effect. A lady took it for consumption of the bowels, and found more relief than in anything else she could procure, I do not want to overestimate its usefulness: but I do want those suffering from sickness to know what this good medicine has done, and is still doing, for I know what It is to be imposed noon when dick, and 1 think It is wrong for any one to overestimate a remedy at the expense of the helpless sick; and for one, will not do It under any circumstances whatever.
