Tlic Will of Hon. Wm. 11. Seward
New York, October 16 — Augustus St.
Clair, formerly of the New Hampshire
Reporter, in a deposition before Judge
Brady yesterday, swore that at the time
Fisk was shot by Stokes, at the Grand
Central Hotel, he saw a pistol in Fisk’s
hands. He also says that the fear of ar
rest prevented him from giving this in
formation on the trial.
John Van Syckle was arrested yester
day at his residence, in Brooklyn, charged
with having poisoned his wife. He had
just returned from her funeral. A do
mestic was also arrested.
Auburn, October 15.—The will of Mr.
Seward, opened to-day, is a clear, succinct
document, singularly free from legal tech
nicalities. and written entirely in hi* own
hand. He bequeaths his late home at Au
burn. with all it 9 contents and pleasant
surroundings, to his three sons, by one or
more of whom it will doubtless be occu
pied, and it is reserved iutact, as far as
possible, in its present condition. His
other property consisting, in part, of se
curities, but mainly of real estate in Au
burn and this locality, he divides into four
equal shares among his son*, Augustus,
Frederick and William and his adopted
daughter, Olive Risely Seward —the two
last named being deputied to execute this
provision of the instrument. No other
legacies or bequests are made. The prop
erty has not yet been appraised and it is
impossible to say precisely what it amounts
to. The estimates vary, but it will proba
bly be not far from $200,000.
Goldsmith ITlnid and Occidout.
Sacramento, October 16. —The race
between Goldsmith Maid and Occident
here this afternoon, drew a crowd of ten
thousand people. The race was for a purse
of SIO,OOO, mile heats, best three in five.
Tiie Maid was the favorite from the out
set —$100 being freely staked against $55
for Occident, Both horses were in exce ■
lent trim. The morning track was m
splendid condition. The weather was
warm and pleasant, and a lively contest
was expected. The first heat Occident
drew the pole and the horses commenced
scoring at half past two o’clock. Nine
false Btarts were made. In scoring, Budd
I)oble, driver of the Maid, always came
up in front, Eofl holding Occident. Eoff
was fined one hundred and fifty dollars
for refusing to obey the orders of the
Judges. After another false start, the
horses finally got ofi on the eleventh score
at 3 1-2 p. M. Occident showed a length
ahead to the first quarter, time 30 3-4
seconds ; opened a gap of daylight at
the half mile, time 1:07 J-4, but when ap
proaching the three quarter post the
Maid collared the horse and passed him.
Coming down the home strech she pulled
ahead Doble laying on the whip, and she
passed three lengths ahead. Time 2:20
Occident’s time was 2:21 1-4 Occident be
haved splendidly and was not fretted by
the scoring. Neither of the horses show
ed any signs of fatigue. Occident still
lias many friends in the betting fraternity.

took place to-day for Governor, State offi

was in the 4U> District, where Hon. B. F.

for Congress, and it is thought lias been
elected, defeating Wallace, the present

ernor, is elected, defeating what is known
as the bolter’s ticket, with Tomlinson as
the candidate for Governor.

A Precious Little Wanderer —The
Missouri Pacific train, last evening,
brought to this city a little girl who gave
her name as Amelia Caxton. She was a
sharp, talkative little creature of nine years
of age, who had traveled all the way alone
from Beading, Pennsylvania, paying her
own way and taking care of herself the
entire distance. She stated to our reporter,
whose attention was called to her on the
train, last evening, that she was an or
phan, without any other relations than a
brother, who is a ‘’pea nut merchant” on
the Pennsylvania Central, and a grand
mother and grandfather residing Dear Den
ver, Colorado, to which place she was go
ing. She carried in her little basket a let
ter signed by the Mayor of Beading, Penn
sylvania, asking all wham it might concern
to aid the little lady in reaching her only
remaining natural protectors. Mr. and
Mrs. Pryor, Denver, Colorado. The little
i child was made much fuss over by those
in the same car, and appeared to he as
hsppy as her little innocent heart could
make her. May she have a safe journey

DECISION OF THE FARMERS.
rpjlE question of caterpillars and its terrible
JL destruction of the fleecy Btaple having,
like the great flood of old, abated, a still more
momentous question involves especial consid
eration at the hands of the farmers. For many
long years E. Isaacs lias catered to the wants
of the traveling public; and to the farmers,
the very bone ana sinew of our beloved South,
he has taken special pains to make them feel at
home while in the city. His tables ure tilled
and the usual “allowancing” is not “allowa
ble.” Indeed you get what you call for and
that without stint. Now the question is:
Will tie Farmers Support Him ?
This question is propounded with the confl
dcnce that will be announced w ith that little
but expressive monosylablc which is so famil
iar with young people enamored of cacti other
—yes! The sturdy farmers knows too well
the comfort that await him at the
To answer otherwise than affirmatively to
the above mentioned question.
While on the subject Mr. Isaacs wishes to
say that Ills patronage has so Increased as to
compel him to provide more ample accomnio

rooms of Huffs new building adjoining his
own. A line bar is attached to this house.
