QUICKEST TET.—The steamer " City of Cleveland" has made the fastest time onjre- oord—having yesterday run from Grand Haven dock to the Milwaukee dock in BIZ hours and five minutes. SUCCESS.—We do not .know; bow many thousand people have visited the Arctic Panorama, but we know of no one who is not satisfied, and willing to say it is the greatest painting of the kind ever exhibited. EIPE PEACHES.—In New York, ripe peaches, from Charleston,are DOW being oflered in the markets. Peaches are nothing to brag of, as here in Wisconsin, we have pain, even as early as the middle of June. Barron, at his News Depot, No; 30, Wisconsin street, has the latest New York, Breton and Philadelphia papers, together with an excellent and varied assortment of the choicest newspaper literature. GOOD TISB.—The excursionists bad a good time going to Grand Rapids and returning, as will be seen by the letter of a correspondent. Business prevented any one connected with this office from participating in. the affair, a circumstance we much rfrgrettted. points, at billiard*, an£ find there are persons silly enough to believe the yarn.' No man living can, at an UoOBstrJarae, iniike Aat number of points al • -rnni . \ff, saw Andy Blum. »t the Newhall the other day, make -over 6,000 points at tie same kind of a, game as that played at J»nesville, x biit it isnof fair billiards. The trick of this extensive "lrm> Jiing" is this : Ihe tfirVred bftHs are "frpxe" in the jaw of the corner pocket — ^they car} not be driven in, or easily coaxed out. • - The play. er then places the white ball half an inch or «o from them, Tefertes;;his cue; lays H on the table, and taking the tip of it, say a/oot from the end, in his fingens, -gttitly. plays the white ball toward him, and on the two reds. B/ light playing, he can keep the balls together there for » week, .not moving the white ball a quarter «f an inch ftt a time, if he has the powers of endurance to diddla away that long. The spring of the r ctuhiqn will allow the balls to givejnst enough to keep them from " freei- ing," unless the player actually hold the white against the others. When yon hear inch runs at billiards, just pall the lo'wer eye-lid down, and ask if anything verdant is visible in yout optic. There is, another way /to make-" big runs," which is by putting tb> balls in a box. and shaking them together a few hoars. S3TIMPOSITI on.—We learn from some.la- dies that one or two persons on board the boat going to G/and Haven, the other night, represented themselves as reporters for the Daily Ntiot. TherJWtoj employs no ench drunken or ill-bred assistants, as most of the party .well knew. t FILL IBTO THE EIVBE.—A boy about ten years of age fell into the river yesterday forenoon, uaar the Cbesnnt Street bridge, and would undoubtedly have been drowned, had ~'_^i»_not a >onng man named Andrew B«ra, assistant bridge-tduder, jumped in after him and saved him.

IQT'THE FOURTH JH iliiWATJESB.— A meet- jag of our citizens will be held on the «th of next month, to decide in wtat manner the 4th ol July flhaU be^Iebrated in| this city. & is contemplated to get up a;large demonstratioB, •ad to expend at least lgW,000 ta celebrating the aBn nr A COFPIK BATH.—Patrick Oor- man is of cleanly habits, but is not fully booked up on some of the institutions of modern civilization. Last week he ventured into the bathing rooms at the Newhall, and having been inducted into one of the" bath-rooms, he appeared to be greatly bothered witk the appearance of things. After eyetag the bathing tub very sharply, and glancing at the small dimensions of the apartment, be asked, in aa anxious tone, if it was not a temporary tomb, in which they placed ihose 1 ,,who got rfrovrned while bathing. The attendant saw his difficulty; and explained to him the office of the tub and other fixings, «nd*i»hbwed him how to let on the water*, hot and cold, but not how to shut them off. Pat disrobed, entered the tub, and 'let the water* loose, according to instructions, in t when the tub became filled be could not s top the rush, and -the lower parts of the establishment were soon' flooded, , Those who. were .being drowned ont were'not in discovering the They/'vjbroke- open his door, and the stream of water iihat-then rushed out carried all of Pat's things',' except* Ws brbgans, which weri too heavy to be moved by water. When asked' why he did Wt stop tbeyater, he replied—^'Be my,,so.wl, I..didn't know how tp stop it, 'sure; "ibis is ihefirstnath- I ever saw in the whole course of myi life. Begorra, I thried mighty bard to stop it Wld iny stockins, by plugging -op' the holes, but divila bit could I dolt; no' sooner I had one stopped than Hhe other wonU break «nt again. I laid in; the coffin there .till 1 .wait flooded over. What more could I do ?'? '-,. [After breakfast, all ttu conveyances that crinld he spared froea the • lir«ry stables were placed at oor disposaj by tie Railroad .Com- panr, to eiiabl* us to see ail tha( could be seen .daring our tiriefetaj;, and was largely enjoyed by Tjiogt of the company until nearly noon in riding rooud the town vie wing the many beau res^denoes and blocks of newanr] mkssive stores, inauy of which are exceedingly fipe structures, and highly creditable td any iity. During the morning's ride, we visited tbe "Eagle Mills,'^ plaster and etucoo works of Vfm. Horey & Oo., on the river about two miles below tb« city. Theae works are, perhaps, this greatest^arioaity^d among tbe most in- lerettiDg things of the place. At this point lrjj-r« is a quarry upon both sides of the river, tbe ieztent of whiah Is not known, but supposed to embrace tome hundred* of acres, from which is taken an ornamental marble, containing almost every variety of colors, and capable of bring manufactured Into blocks for building purpose*, or ornaments of any kind, and capable of receiving as high a polish,; and as beautiful an appearance'as any thst ever came from Italy. Out of thia same quarry Is obtained tne'material for mannfacturing fertilizing plaster, stucco mat*Tial and water Jlme.-~ The vein at these works containing all this material lays about thirty feet below tbe surface. The ^oarrying at Mr Hovey's works hat been eorumcnceJ nt tbe tide of the hill, excavating under tbe ground to the depth of teri or twdv<»f<*t, leaving pillars at proper distances, and inlrodncing heavy timbers »t other places, to support tbe earth above, and .for the pnrpom of banging lights on to work by. An area of abuat two hundred feet square has already been excavated.' The Eton.- is drawn ont on cars upon railroad tracks,— Thfese worksjare a curiosity.hlghly interesting and well worthy a visit from any one who happens at Grand Rapids, which, by the way, is the second city in size and population in tbe State of Michigan and gives as nruoh, if not more, evidence of thrift, and a solid and heal, thy increase in easiness.now and in the future, as any 'other place in tbe State. After completing Our rides arounr town and tbe suburbs, at an invitation previously givan by,Mr. Thos. D. Worrell, editor and proprietor, of tbe - Qrtat Western Journal, a publication devoted to education, agriculture, choice literature, and tbe news, we repaired to his establishment to partake of an excellent dinner, gotten up by him. _ A long table was spread in the centre of hts composing room, which is an unusually large One, with stands and oases of type arranging along OB either aide of the table, which rendered the entertainment quite as novel as it wag* good. And that it was good, tne way ev- ; — one hurried up his ' 'fat take," and dls- the "matter" that lay before him, cleared up the "pi" and adjusted his '''form," was evidence conclusive. Mr.' Worrall ls one of those large hearted and noble men, who if they fall 1o receive the full reward of their nu- del-takings,; it la not because they lack In merit. , _~~; : After gartaking of Mr. Worrell's hospitality, jre then proceeded to ihe Balhbnn Boose, where; a large assemblage of citizens had as- one On the return trip, on board the Cleveran'l, .™e7to#abws';£f||hj^^ >l«jii§^.;heUl!*-ni^^ passed;!.'reaoln.Mpna - returning tljanka- >itt the President and SpirecUjrt of the Drtroit and Milwaukee Bailwa-yfCompany, H. dl Wilsoo';-Esq., the Ag<*t, T Cap',.

PRDBE AHD SCICIDI —Adam Bettig. hitherto a respectable and well-to-do farmer, who resides about eight miles from this citjr, on Thursday evening, between six and seven o'clock, sent his two-sons away to a neighbor's, on some errand, and ,at the same-time directed his daughter to go ont in the yard and milk ih» cows. No sooner bad, the children got away from tbe house tfean Rettig seized an axe, and while his wife's back was turned, (she attending tor somehouaehold work at the t(me,) he dealt her a dreadful blow-on the head, breaking in her skull, and knocking her senseless to the floor. While thus prostrate before him, he placed the muzzle of a double-barrelled' pistol against her side and discharged It, the balls glaalng against the rib bones, passed up under the shonldet blade, and came ont at tbe top of her head! Not satisfied with this the wretched man then took a kettle of boiling voter and poured it over her from head to foot, while she °stfl! 11 red and shrieked ft) tortures worse than- death. This dotta, Bettig then went to • smokehouse hi bin yard, and taking an old rifle which lie had previously left there already loaded, with a long stick fastened to tha trigger, placed the muzzle under his chin and blew his own brains ont'! And thus ended the bloody drama. Rettig had lived in this country upwards of 12 years, during which time, by'prudence and economy, he had laid up the snug little sum of $12,000, besides having a well stocked and cultivated farm of eighty acres. He was half brother of Mr. Matbias Stein, one of our oldest and moat respected citizens, and as far as we can learn, he lived an irreproachable life. Of late year*, however, he Lad been characterized by extreme eccentricity QU one subject, name- 1y. bis wife's fidelity, -and lately this fdea worked upon him to «nch an extent that he frequently accused his best friends of deaigos upon her chastity, and thfa, no doalrt, Ifcd to tbe dreadful deed.
