In the district court yesterday the case

recover about $ -100 claimed for commis

A breach of promise suit has been Hied
in the district court , in which a Weston
man , Miles II , Hall , is made the defend
ant. The plaintilV is Miss Georgia M
Dial , who in her petition tolls the story
of her wrongs to bo in substance that Mr
Hall wooed and won her allections tt
such an extent that ho proposed in May
1880 , nnd she accepting him as her future
husband was misled by the conlidenci
she hud in him. From May until November
ber bo continued his attentions , and renewed
nowed frequently his promises of marriage -
riago , Then ho cruelly lei ook her. She
claims licit she has not only boon wroiigui
in heart but in body , and'that she is suffering
foring pain and disgrace. She therefore
asks for ilnmaups to the extent of $10,000
nnd that n writ of attachment bo issuei
to prevent his disposing of his property
ami thus defeating her purpose , Tin
court has ordered Mich a writ , the shcril
not to sciie more than $5OCO , worth o

Tlio ladies in charge of the now city
lospitnl have been working zealously to
tcuro the needed financial support for
his most commendable enterprise. The
success which attended the presentation
of tlio old-fashioned district school some
line ago has caused the ladies of the hos-
iHnl association to make a move to secure
a repetition of that entertainment , the
irocccds to go for the bcnelit of the hos-
liltil fund. The ladies have been urgently
tsking those who participated in that en-
ortaiiimeut to repeat it for the bcnelit of
the hospital , and last evening a meeting
was held at Odell Hro * . AsCo.'Holllco. The
lecision was reached that the request
should bo compiodwith. The district school
will therefore- repented at the opera
muse next Friday evening. There will
: > o changes in the exercises so as to make
it in many respects a new entertainment.
As the ladies and gentlemen participat
ing in this entertainment have thus cou-
MMitcd to do what they can to holt ) alone
the hospital , the public generally will
doubtless see to it that the opera house is
Tilled , and a round sum put into Hie treas
ury of the hospital. The entertainment
itself will draw ami will please.

Across the marshes and bayous eight
miles to the west from Petite Anso island ,
writes Charles Dudley Warner in Har
per's Magazine for February , rises
Orange island , famous for its orange
plantation , but called .tellers on island
since it became the property of and home
of Joseph Jollerson. Not so high as
Petite Anso , it is still conspicuous with
its crown of dark forest. From a high
point on Petite Anso , through a lovely
vista of trees with ( lowering cacti in tlio
foreground , JolTorson's bouse is nvhite
ppot in the landscape. We reached it by
a circuitous drive of twelve miles over
the prairie , sometimes in and sometimes
out of the water , and continually diverted
from our course by fences. It is n good
sign of the thrift of the race , nrd of its
independence , that the colored people
have taken up or bought litllo tracts of
thirty or forty acres , put up cabins ami
now fences round their domains regard
less of the traveling public. Wo zig
zagged all about tlio country to get
round these little enclosures. At one
place where the main road was bad , n
thrifty Acadian had set up a toll of
twenty-live cents for the privilege of
passing through his promises. The
scenery was pastoral and pleasing.
There wore frequent loundi ponds , brill
iant with lilies and liours-dc-lis , and hun
dreds of cattle feeding on the prairie or
standing in the wnter , and generally of a
dun-color , made always an agreeable
picture. The monotony was broken by
lines of trees , by cape-like woods stretch
ing into the pla'm. nud the liorizon line
wa's always lino. Great variety of birds
enlivened the landscape , game birds
abounding. There was the lively little
nonpareil , which seems to chaugo its
color , ami is rod , green and blue 1 Iw-
liovo of the oriole tnmily the papabottc ,
n fnvoritc on Now Orleans tables , in the
autumn , snipe , killdeo , the chcrooke
( snipe ? ) tlio meadow-lark , and quantities
of teal ducks in the ponds. Tlie.se little
ponds are called "bull-holes. " The trav
eller is told that they are blurted in this
wntery ioil by the pawing of bulls , and
gradually enlarged as the cattle frequent
them. Ho remembers that ho has seen
similar cirnulnr ponds in the north not
made bv bulls.
Mr. Jellci son's residence n pretty
roso'Vino-covored cottage is shunted on
the slope of the hill , overlooking a broad
plain nnd n vast .stretch of bayou conn
try , Along one bide of his homo-enclos
ure for a niilo runs n Mipcrb bedgo of
Chickasaw roses. On tlio slope Lack of
the house , and almost embracing it , is a
magnificent grove of live oaks , great
gray stems , niul the branches hung with
lienvy mnsses of moss , which swing in
the wind , like the pendant boughs of the
willow , and with something of its senti
mental and mournful suggestion. The
recesses of this forest are cool and dark ,
but upon ascending tlio hill , suddenly
bursts upon view under the trees a mo.st
lovely lake of clear hhio water Tins
lake , which may bo n milo long ami
half a nil lo broad , Is called
Lake Peignour from its fanciful resem
blance , I bollovo , to a wool comber. Tim
shores are wooded. On the Island siilu
the bank is precipitous ; on the opposite
shore amid the trees is a hunting lodge ,
nnd I believe them are plantations on tlio
north end , but it is in aspect altogether
solitary and peaceful. Hut tlieiblund , did
not want life. The day was brilliant
witli a docp blue sky ami high sailing
ilccoy clouds , and it seemed a bert of ani
mal holiday ; squirrels chatted , cardinal
birds Hashed through the green leaves ;
there flittered about the rcil-wlngci !
blucjkblrd , oluo jays , red-headed wood
peckers , thrushes , and occasionally a
rain-crow crossed the scene- high overhead

aunchlng process was by moans of by-

cost of launching alone was $300,000.

seventy feet ; total weight when launched
12,000 tons- , carrying capacity 20,000 tons ,
iho could transport 5,000 troops , besides
icr crew of 400. The capital subscribed
laving been all expended a new company
was formed to lit her for sea. On Sep-
ember 7 , 1851) ) , she sailed from Depford
for Portland Koads and during the voyage
when od' Hastings , an explosion oc
curred on board , which killed leu liro-

; > n Juno 17 , I GO , she'sailed for New

She returned to Kuglaml August 20.

liauds of the sherilV's ollicers , but was re
leased and bailed again for New York
Mayl , 1P01. On the 12th of September
Lint vcnr she suffered mueli from a violent
lent gale. In 1802 she performed several
voyages to and from New York , and in
August of that year ran on a reek near
Long Island , injuring her bottom. She
was repaired , and returned to Liverpool
in January , 183 ( ! , and made another
voyage to New York in May. In Marcher
or April , 1801 , she was bought
by Glass , Eliot & Co. , and was
chartered to hiy the Atlantic cable.
In March , 1870 , slio again visited New
York , and in May following was seized
by tlie seaman claiming their wages.
Afterward she was used in the cable lay
ing service , assisting in la.ying live At
lantic cables and one from Sueto Horn-
bay. Of late years the great ship has
been n sort of white elephant on the
hands of her owners , and it was in con
templation to semi her to Gibraltar to be
used as a corillmlk , but this was recon
sidered , ami i-oiiio mouths ago she was
purchased by parties who have mnde a
traveling exhibition and entertainment
concern of her. She is now in Dublin
Hay , turning an honest penny for her
owners in that way , There is some talk
yet , however , of degrading the noble
vessel to the service of a eoalhulk and
making the Mersey , at Liverpool , her
Lethe. The original name of the Great
Kastern , though for a short time only ,
was Leviathan. She has never been on
the Pacilic at all.

ACCUSING AN'JIONEST MAN.
How the Owner of n Itnrc Coin Got
Into Trouble ut the Smithsonian.
Chicago Herald : " An innocent man
wrongly accused will always appear
guilty , " said an old detective yesterday ;
"while a hardened criminal under tbe
most criminating- circumstances will
seem the personification pf virtuous in
nocence. I remember n singular circum
stance that occurred at the Smithsonian
institute in Washington when I was do
ing duty there some years ago. In one
of the e'oln cases there was a rare old
Roman coin , supposed to be the only one
in existence. One day a gentleman
came with a written order from n high
official directing the curator to let him
take the coin out of the case to examine
it. It was placed in his hand
ami after looking at it to his
heart's content he returned it , as
we thought , to its place in the case and
turned to leave the room. The curator.
approaching the case to IOCK it. found
that tlio coin was missing. lie stated tlio
fact to the gentleman , who immediately
became very red ami indignant , and de
clared positively that ho had replaced it ,
at the same time trying to leave the
room. I intercepted him , and , being
convinced from his conduct that lie had
stolen the coin , I Insisted upon searching
him. Ho positively refused to permit
this , whereupon the curator nnd myself
