ShnVely , aged 8 jcars , found dead in bed
at her home eight miles soullic ist of this city ,
found upon examination that the body had
received several biuisos , theie beluga num
ber of swellings nnd abrasions. The left
nnn and lovu rllmb were considerably swollen
and discolored , mid bluish red spots vvcio
visible along the left side and along the
Bplne. There weie also purple marks under
iho tin oat and undei the lelt ear. The back
dnd flngcis of the left hand were nl o
swollen and discolored. The abdomen had
all turned purple and the general appearance
of the body , fiicludlni ; the symptoms above
described , together with tlio emaciated con
dition , led to the conclusion that the child
bad boon subject * d to rough and cruel treat-
niejit and neglect. There was no conclusive
evidence , however , tliat deatli icsiiltcd trom
any recently Inflicted wounds or bruises , but
It seems to bo the Impression that death was
tlm result of long nculect and cruelty , and
lack of proper mcdlc.il attendance uiidtroat-
infliit. Slio was evidently u frail and sickly
phlld. Four jcars ago Mr. Snavoly lived near
Ayr , in this county , and Ins vvito ran away
with another man. The only blame attached
to the woman by the neighbors was tlmt she
' did not takotho child vvlfli her. Mr. Suavely ,
\\hnliastho reputation of bclnc a worthless
nd shiftless character , has farmed the child
ont' to dlffrreut parties to care for her , nnd
the family In who o house Klio was found
tlewl wan not able to give her the pioper care
demanded by her delicate health since she
was left there last Juno byhci lather , who
has not vlhltod hi r since. In all probability
no criminal charge w ill be ( nought against
Mr. and Mrs. llalte , at whose house the girl
died. Suavley seems to bo wholly indif

he ts no doubt in a laigo lueasiuc re

Nobodv in Kngland troubles the accuracy
of Trevclyaii's description of the condition
of Ireland. Inmost pattS of the Island no
rent whatever Is paid , boycotting Is verllent
and almost universal , but the lory cabinet , as
Englishmen think , prefers to tolerated sub
version of law and social disorganization
lather than lose the chances ot buying Par-
nell's support. Roughly speaking , Knulnnil
has to cheese between a policy which tends
tends towards an ultimate surrender to Pai-
ncll and the policy which embodies a seri

society. Uotb mav bo avoided 11 modciatc

LOMIOX , Oct. 3-1. It Is now evident that

being seveicly handled , and discouraged by1
the deseitlon of their chhinplon , retreated ,
leaving tlich oontcstomuastorH of the field.
The latter then bci/ed the platform and
passed a resolution condemning the liberal
jiollcy. When the queen's non-in-Iaw made

The Week on thu Stock
Nuvv YOIIK , Oct. ' . . [ Special to the
BIUJ. ] The Now York stock exchange sel
dom had a laager week's business than
In the one just ended. One of thu
objects of the hull campaign Is certainly ac
complished. The public Is in the market to n
greatere.xtcntthan at any time dining the
pist three joars. It only icqulred encour
agement to bring them in. The bull combi
nation counted on this and laid their plans.
It is altogether piobablo that the cngluccis of
the movement unloaded their stocks and secured
cured their piolits In the e.nly part of the
week. Many experience d operators looked
for an Inevitable H action on Wednesday
last. In this thcj wcio disappointed. Even
the threatened danger to the new tiunk line
pool by the Baltimore * Ohio's refusal to sign
the passenger business agreement failed
more than to depress the maiket a little.
Public bujing supported the market , and
prices closed at an advance ovirlastwi'ek.
in the piesent speculative temper of tlio pub
lic a farther advance is easily possible. But
when tlio public get through bujing theio
will bo a pretty livelv slump. Tlie tall in
piices vvlll then only be measured by tlio de
gree of eagei ness on the public's part to Ret
out , and the extent to which the hew short in
terest 1ms been loiiued to give ( be market sup
port by bujing when tin1 frightened public
begins to tluovv its holdings overboard.
Tlie speculative furore is alwajs uiiio.i ou-
nble , but this one is more than usual. A few
dajsago Heading was iearelod us practically
worthless , and so d at the lowest rocnidod
price. Foicelosuionndaii assessment equiv
alent to wiping out tlio stock appealed Inevi
table. This week , however , Heading sudden
ly began lo jump. Tlio market was appar
ently tilled with bujing orders , and up it
went on Immense ti-.uisnctlnns to'JoeAt the
same time rumors were out In fmeo tliat Van-
dcrbilt was bujing tlio stock with a view of
completing his contiol , cu tliat the Pennsjl-
vaiiia was bujing with tlie same object. It
looks now very much as If some one hud mar
keted a lot ol stocks , ami people wore not
wanting who sav Vanderbllt cot rid In this
way ol his Heading holdings. Tlie senseless
ness of the movement in the stock maybe
shown by tlio fact tliat there is an issue of
Heading bonds supciioi in lien to the stocks
which aio selling at a lower figure than the
Anothei stilkimr illustration ot the same
Illogical nature ol the speculation is shown
in tlie fact tliat New 1'ork Central stock
closed ut , ? 1.03 > 4' . The stock has IK en paying
dividends for the last two quarters at the
mngiiilieent rate ot M per cent , or 2 per cent
pei annum. Kven ijie most extravagant bull
vvlll hardly asseit tliat tor some time to come
the load will be able to earn moie than C per
cent on tlie stock. Nevertheless the com
pany's dcbentuiOH , which aio an absolute
piomiso to pay inteiest at tlie rate of flpor
cent per annum , are selling at 81.05 , or only
W/ per cent above the stock.
The telegraph situation Is very peculiar.
Tlio Gould party and insiders generally talk
hcaiishlv on the piopertj , and a party identi
fied witli the fortunes pf the Baltimore &
Ohio think Westein Union not such n bad
piojiertj' after all. It would not IHJ sur-
