MR. MALLON AND HIS ENEMIES.
W e do not believe that the history of socia
or political contests will show a more wanton
or causeless assault than the one made by
certain members of the Public School Board
on Superintendent Mallon.
Mr. Mallon came to Atlanta to take charge
of the schools before they were organized.
He succeeded, by tireless energy and con
stant devotion to his work, in building up a
system that is the pride of Atlanta, and is
pronounced, by all who examine it, the best
to be found in any Southern city. Quiet, un
demonstrative, loyal to his duties and careless
of notoriety, but little was heard of him;
but the schools bespoke his praise, and his
reputation was builded in the hearts of thou
sands of parents.
At length, a faction of the Board developed
opposition to the system as it stood. The
High Schools were the objects of attack. In
various ways this minority assaulted the sys
tem. I hey claimed that retrenchment was
necessary. Finding that they could not abol
ish the High Schools, they seemed determined
. to hinder and hamper the system in every
■ possible way. They finally secured a tie vote,

a f’ r - Million, and being ap-
in favor of anything to disturb the
even tenor of the schools, they put up a new
candidate for superintendent. Havipg just
hek\ that they should not have any superin
tendent, they now tried to elect one. In the
race between Mr. Mallon and others, every
one of the men who have been classed as ob
structionists, and who are opposed to the sys
tem, voted against Mr. Mallon. It appeared
plain that their object was to weaken the
schools by putting out the man that had built
Gov. Brown joined the obstructionists in
their war on Mr. Mallon, and has been one of
his most rwasistent foes. It is said that Gov.
Brown has a personal reason for his fight on
Mr. Mallon. It is certain that in the bitter
yipitiYM a!raq‘. hqjy.s made upon jq.ni, he
r sfiown a Slid
venomous spirit that does not comport with
his high position and illustrious reputation.
His specious and circuitous arguments, when
confronted with Mr. Mallon’s calm and manly
utterances, put him in a bad light. It seems
that the Governor has allowed his fondness
for controversy and his pride of sarcasm to
lead him deeper into this thing than he in
tended to go at first, or should ever have gone.
In the meantime, Mr. Mallon has been busily
abused by this clique. One gentleman, who
rushes as blindly as a mad bull when he is en
raged, accused him of being an imported

nine-tenths of the people that these as-
on Mr. Mallon hare not had the slight
cst justification by anything in either his pri-
M vate or official record. The public sympathy
f and feeling are overwhelmingly with him.
And while he has received several offers that
are better than what he gets by remaining
here, we believe that it is his duty to stand to
the public schools of Atlanta. It is doubtless
disagreeable to a quiet and decorous gentle
man to be run-a-muck by a few wrong headed
officials, but in this case be must certainly be
sustained by the knowledge that the people
approve of his work and will hold up his
hands, with an almost literal unanimity.
THE GAZETTE AND THE PEOPLE.
The reception of the Gazette on last Sun.
day was all that could be desired.

quaintances, scantily advertised, nevertheless

its appearance, and the edition was speedily

books— bona fide subscribers, coming from
nearly fifty post offices. We have had noth
ing but kind words and compliments, and the
world is especially bright and breezy to us, as
we go to press with our second edition.
Indeed, there is no reason why the Gazette
should not become a popular paper. It car
ries more reading matter than any paper pub
lished in the city. It is made up especially
for leisurely entertainment, and presents a .
variety that must satisfy any taste. There j
are stories, sketches, news-letters, fashion-let-!
ters, sensations, interviews, politics, religious ;
matters, local points, editorials, poetry, theat- i
rical news, society notes, gossip and argu
ment, and the whole seasoned with a plentiful
sprinkling of fun and humor. Surely there is I
variety enough to suit the most capricious !
But we have little space to devote to a dis- 1
cussion of the Gazette. We do not even '
care to spare a corner for the printing of a
bill of tare. We print this morning an edi
tion nearly double that of last Sunday, and ’

This tremendous victory was achieved simply
and solely through division in the Democratic
ranks. A large number of greenback men,
under the lead of designing politicians, left
the Democratic ranks, and gave the State to
the Republicans. Had the greenback Demo
crats voted with the party 7 , the Democrats
would have carried Ohio. Carrying Ohio,
they- wotdd have elected the next President
without auy doubt.
This lesson is good for all latitudes. M her
ever Democrats split off from the party or

cal party. The result is just about the same
as if they were to vote for Radical candidates.

“ The Life of Gen. Aiibebt Sidney Johnston.” !
Embracing His Services in the Armies ot the United |
States, the Republic of Texas, and the Confederate
States. By William Prestos Johnston. With
- illustrations on Steel and Wood. New York: D. Ap
plfctou & Co.
Although this Life of Albert Sidney John- j
f ston” necessarily cannot be compared with a
large number of other biographies that from
i time to time have been produced, it is still,
* when taken in connection with the great ma
. jority of like works that daily find their way
: into the literary market, an oasis in the truest
■ sense of the world.
f Between the importance of the theme and
) the sympathy of the biographer there has
been produced a work that will meet with the
f approval of every intelligent reader. The
i appreciation of the biographer of his subject
i may be learned from the following extract,
r taken from his concise and comprehensive
“No ideal of what a hero ought to be has
been framed herein*; but the story of a life has
been told, just as it was lived. Sympathetic
spirits, however wide the differences of cir
cumstances, creed or opinion, may learn, in
its adversities and its consolations, some les
sons of fortitude and magnanimity.
“In Albert Sidney Johnston’s long life, he
mingled in many great and memorable events,
and in some of the greatest he acted the chief
and most conspicuous part In all of them
his countrymen accounted him a fine example
of civic and military virtues. His death was
not only the decoious and becoming end to a
grand life, but many of the wisest and ablest
leaders believe that in his fall a national trag
edy culminated, which ever after declined to
wards its final catastrophe. Many of the
most judicious have declared that on his arm
rested the fortunes of the Confederate cause.
It cannot be well that such a figure should
pass into utter oblivion.”
FAMILY AND BOYHOOD.
According to his biographer, Albert Sidney
Johnston was born on the 2d of February,
1803, in the village of Washington, Mason
county, Ky. He was the youngest son of Dr.
John Johnston, a physician, and one of the
early settlers of that town. His boyhood was
a fit prehide to his after life. Though his
father’s means were narrow, yet the educa
tion which he had, at whatever personal in
convenience, bestowed upon all his children
could not fail to exercise a liberalizing influ
ence on his household. The habits of all
classes at that time were plain and unosten
tatious ; but this family was necessarily
trained to a Spartan simplicity that was ever
afterward the rule and habit of life most con
genial to Gen. Johnston. Captain Wilson
Duke, United States navy, one of the choice
friends of his youth, used laughingly to tell
how he tore off his rutiled shirt collar and hid
his shoes on the road to school, from fear of
Albert Johnston’s ridicule. His intimate
friends in those early days nearly all obtained
more than ordinary positions in after-life.
That Johnston’s boyhood, as well as his later
years, was not without its ambitions and con-
may be learned from
the annexed anecdote, repeatedly told by
“ Gen. Johnsjon sometimes told an anec
dote of his early boyhood, from which he was
wont to draw many a valuable moral. Play
in*7 marbles 1 for keeps’—a species of boyish
U. . —».
ful as a marble-player that at one time he
had won a whole jarful of white alleys, taws,
potters, etc. It was then that the design en
tered his breast of winning all the marbles in
the town, in the State, and eventually in the
world. Filled with enthusiasm at the vast
ness of his project, he cast about for the
means, and finally 7 concluded, as the first step,
to secure his acquisitions by burying them.
He buried his jar very secretly, reserving only
marbles enough ‘to begin life on.’ Purpose
lent steadiness to his aim, so that again he
beat al! his rivals ‘in the ring,’ and added
daily to his store. Only one competitor stood
against him, whose resources seemed to con
sist not so much in skill as in aa exhaustless
supply of marbles, that were sacrificed with a
recklessness arguing unlimited pocket-money.
At last he, too, succumbed, and the victor went
with ajar larger than the first to add to his
spoils. To his dismay, however, he found his
hoard plundered and his treasure gone. The
inferior, but desperate, marble-player had fur
tively watched him, robbed him, and then
staked and lost his ill-gotten gains. The sec
ond jar contained the same marbles as the
first, and larceny had contended for empire
with ambition. Gen. .Johnston said that he
felt the lesson as a distinct rebuke to his ava
rice aud rapacity. The plans he had built
upon success vanished, and he learned that
world-wide renown as a marble-player was
merely ‘vanity and vexation of spirit-’ ”
Once resolved, he re-entered with ardor and
steady industry on his collegiate course at
Lexington, • where he remained two years.
Transylvania University, though planted al
most in the wilderness, had the good fortune
to be under able direction, and had thus ac
quired great reputation as a seat of learning.
It was the alma mater of many illustrious
men, among whom is Jefferson Davis.
When Johnston was graduated, in June,
1826, he was entitled, by 7 virtue of his rank in
his class, to select which arm of the service
he preferred. Had a cavalry corps then ex
isted his tastes would have led him to enter
it; but as between the artillery, then gener
ally stationed in the seaboard fortresses,
usually considered preferable, and the infan
try, which was employed in more active ser
vice on the frontier, he chose the latter. He
was accordingly assigned to the 2d infantry,
with the rank of brevet second lieutenant, to
take date from July 1, 1826, with a furlough
until the Ist of November.
EARLY ARMY LIFE AND MARRIAGE.
Little of general interest remains, either in
documentary form or in the memories of men,
respecting the early years of Albert Sidney
Johnston’s army life. It was at this time
that Johnston greatly disappointed his friends
by resolutely refusing to accept advancement
“Away was unexpectedly opened by an
offer from Gen. Scott to make him his aid-de
camp, a proposal very flattering in itself, and
opening as brilliant a career as could be de
sired bad he possessed the temper of the cour
tier. The temptation of rapid promotion and
graceful pleasures would have proved irre
sistible to many minds, and perhaps most men
would have acted judiciously in accepting the
friendly offer. But nothing could deter him
from his resolution to enter at once on the
rugged duties of his chosen career, and to owe
his advancement to meritorious service, not
Concerning his duties as a soldier during
these earlier days, Mr. Johnston writes:
“ The most notable event with which Lieut.
Johnston was connected in the year 1827, was
the expedition to compel the Winnebago In
dians to atone for outrages upon the white
settlers. This tribe occupied the country
about Winnebago and along the banks of the
Wisconsin river, with the Menomonees for
their neighbors on the north: the Pottawat
tamies dwelt about the headwaters of Lake
Michigan, and the Sacs and Foxes on both
banks of the Mississippi in northern Illinois,
southern Wisconsin, and lowa. On the 20th
of June the Winnebagoes had suddenly put
to death some white people, and seemed dis
posed to break out into open war. in which
they also endeavored to enlist the Pottawat
tamies. As the Winnebagoes numbered some
six or seven hundred warriors, were physi
cally large, well-formed, and strong, and were
the most indomitable and irreclaimable sav
ages on that frontier, great apprehensions
were felt of a cruel warfare. They refused
to negotiate with Gen. Cass, who thereupon
turned the matter over to Gen. Atkinson.
The expedition left Prairie du Chien on the
29th of August, and returned to Jefferson
Barracks Sept. 27.”
Albert Sidney Johnston was endowed by
nature with an ardent and enthusiastic tem- |
perament; but to this were joined a solidity ■
of temperament and a power of self-control 1
that early held it in cheek, and eventually so i
regulated it that it was only displayed in reso- t
lutions and actions requiring uncommon lofti- <
tiness of soul. However, his son, instead of .<
dwelling at length upon his many and varied 11
traits of character, very judiciously andrgree- <
ably develops them one by one to the reader i
by brief interesting anecdotes that eloquently , ’
tell the whole story. Thus we have the whole j *
■ story of his kindness of heart and self-cmtrol <
told in a few words: J
I “He had a beautiful riding horse, whiffi he ;
thought of selling: but, as the time ap- ■
proacbed for his departure, he would tun his i *
I favorite out of the stable, and watch his giace-; i
I ful movements as he enjoyed the freedom of :
i the pasture. When about to go, he gave him ;
to his sister, saying: ‘ I cannot sell that h<rse; 1
■ he might fall into hands where he wouli be
I badly treated; but you will use him veil.’
i Mrs. Byers says: ‘ His dog and his hors» he
I always treated with the kindest consideration.
I I have often known him to walk, and lead
i horse, when it had become fatigued.’ TlhjJ
trait grew upon him with years, and his eorrti3«
rades and followers can attest the benevolence “
I that noted and regarded every sign of fatigue j
I or suffering in animals under his control.
I “He would habitually turn aside from
! treading upon a worm in his path; but there |
| was no morbid sentimentality in this, as he
enjoyed field-sports moderately. He pre
ferred, however, not to injure the most inaig
j nifieant beings. It may not he amiss to give
I here another little anecdote, that shows in I
| part how his habits of self-control were formed. I
; The same sister tells how, when he was a lad ‘
’ 14 years old, on one occasion, though not in
I the habit of giving way to anger,’ he entirely- 1
lost patience, after having repeatedly tried in ;
vain to pull on a tight boot, and at last threw
it violently out of the window. She gave him
a gentle and rather playful rebuke, at which:
he left the room with a look of quiet defiance,
■ but soon returned with the boot and silently
set it against the wall. No further allusion
! ■ was made to it. When ten years later he vis"
. ited his family. Mr. Byers presented him with
. a fine rifle. He loaded the rifle to try it :
, but, on attempting to shoot, it snapped. He
t examined it, and tried again; again it
> and so on for several times. At last, he
3 quietly put it down, saying: ‘This is a very
fine rifle, but it needs oiling.’ His sister, who
had been admiring his patience and calmness, ;
3 said, ‘I wonder you did not strike it across the ’
3 railing.’ He laughed and replied: ‘You re
” member the hoot. I have not forgotten it;
but I have learned that a soldier should have
perfect control of himself, to be able to coru'
trol others.’ ”
B A MARBLE CAMPAIGN.
In the following we have revealed the sensi
tiveness and impetuosity of his youth:
“During his sojourn as a bachelor at Jefief
son barracks, being fond of music, he tried to
learn to play the Hute. A wide difference of
opinion existed between himself and his
friends as to his musical aptitudes. He per
severed in spite of their jests; until these and
the resulting doubts in his own mind, rendered
him somewhat irritable oh the score of his
skill. One day, as he was practicing in his
room, he heard a tapping on the floor above,
occupied by a fellow-officer. Instantly refer
ring this to his music, and regarding it as an
indecorum, he nevertheless continued the air;
but, when it occurred again, he stopped, and
the tapping stopped. Waiting a moment to
restrain his rising anger, he resumed the tune
and the tapping began again. This was too
much for the outraged patience of- the angry
musician, who, dashing down his flute, sprang
up the stairs, determined to exact satisfac
tion. To a thundering knock at the door, a
friendly voice replied, inviting him to come
in: and, when lie strode in, he found his
neighbor with a look of mild inquiry at liis
evident excitement, unsuspiciously cracking
walnuts on the hearth. With a brief apology
for his intrusion, he rushed down stairs again,
mortified at his own hastiness and loss of
temper. He at once gave up the flute ; for,
said he, ‘I did not think that a man so sensi
tive about his skill was fit for a flute player. ”
Another incident further shows that the
control of later j*ears did not belong to earlier
AN INDIAN ANCDOTE.
“He was engaged with some fellow-officers
in artillery-practice on the ice of Lake Onta
rio, when a wild party of sleighers kept dust
ing across the line of fire, near the target.
; Meaning to rebuke this bravado with a good
scare, he waited for the rush of their Canadiar
ponies near his target, and then fired, lit

’ whole party were enveloped in snow anc
’ splintered ice, and seemed to be blotted out

instant of suspense that murder had beer
done, and the relief of the revelers at theii
escape was not greater than his own. Ht
; accepted the adventure, however, as a lessor
' in something more than artillery-practice.”
“ Concluding his disquisition on his father’-
character, Mr. Johnston says that there were
no traits more strongly marked than his pow
erful domestic affections and his love for na
ture in all her aspects, but especially as seen
through the coloring of a rural life. On the
other hand, so strangely are our qualities
mingled, he felt the desire, the power, the call
to achieve something great, useful, and mem
orable. Never was a man more deeply con
scious that he was born into the world not for
himself, but for others; and that, whosoever
else might fail, on him, at least, lay an obli
gation of public duty, to which self must be
Speaking of Gen. Johnston’s politics, lie says:
' '“Albert Sidney Johnston was a republican
from the bottom of his heart, and though not
a propagandist in either temper or sentiment,
was a sincere believer in the blessing of regu
lated liberty and supremacy of law. With
these ideas of public right, and with the con
viction of his call to render public service,
he thought his talent could not be put to bet
ter use than in aiding to secure their liberties
to men of his own race, who were ready to
sacrafice all else to achieve them. Originally,
however, the most potent motive that urged
him to enlist in this enterprise was the hope
that. Texas having been freed, he might pro
mote its annexation to the United States;
and, since readmission into the army was
impossible, that he might employ the sword,
for whom his country deemed she had no
need, in laying an empire at her feet. Os
course, after he had devoted himself to the
cause of J exas, her interest became para
mount; but he freely admitted that, in the
first instance, he was in a large measure ani
mated by the desire of assisting to add an
other star to the American constellation.
Indeed, strong as were his feelings in behalf
of the infant nation, he did not consumate
his resolution to enter its service until the
government of the United States had recog
nized its independence. With this sanction
he felt no further hesitation, and threw him
self into the cause with all the ardor of his
MILITARY CAREER AND DEATH.
So extended and varied were Johnston’s
military services that in the space allotted in
a review it is simply impossible to do them
justice. Suflice it to say, then, that his biog
rapher has forgotten none of them, and that
■to all he has done greatest justice. From
the many accounts might be gathered col
umns of incidents of the most interesting
nature- But as to do that is out of the ques
tion, it only remains for us to heartily recom
mend the work to the many readers of the I
Regarding the ending of the great soldier's ;
career no one could have done the subject ■
greater justice than his present biographer.
The description is a fair sample of the general I
style of the entire narrative.
“Gen, Johnston rode out in front, and slow-i
ly down the line. His hat was off. His sword :
rested in its scabbard. In his right hand lie i
held a little tin cup, the memorial of an inci
dent that had occurred earlier in the day.
As they were passing through a captured ’
camp, an officer had brought from a tent a
number of valuable articles, calling General
Johnston’s attention to ‘hem. He answered,
with some sternness: ‘None of that, sir: we
are not here for plunder!’ And then as if:
regreting the sharpness of the rebuke, for the
anger of the just cuts deep, he added, taking
this little tin cup, 'Let this be my share of the
spoils to-day.’ It was this plaything, which,
holding it between two fingers, he employed
more effectivelly in his natual and simple
gestulation than most men could have used a
sword. His presence was full of inspiration.
Many men of rank have told the writer that
they never saw Gen. Johnston’s equal in bat
tle in this respect. He sat his beautiful thor
ough-bred b„y, ‘Fire-eater,” with -easy com
mand —like a statue of victory. His voice
was persuasive, encouraging, and compell- ,
ing. It was inviting men to death, but they
obeyed it. But, most of all, it was the light I
in his gray eye, and his splendid presence,
full of the joy of combat, that wrought upon j
them. His words were few. He touched their
bayonets with a significant gesture. ‘These j
must do the work,' he said. 'Men! they are!
stubborn: we must use the bayonet.’ When
he reached the centre of the line, he turned.
‘I will lead you !' he cried, and moved toward
the enemy. The line was already thrilling
and trembling with that tremendous and ir
resistable ardor which in battle decides the
day. Those nearest to him, as if drawn to '
'him by some overmastering magnetic fordJ
rushed forward around him with a mighty !
shout. The rest the line took it up and
ech'oed it with a wild yell of defiance and
.desperate purpose, and moved forward at a
charge with rapid and restl«s step. A sheet
of flame kqrst from the federal stronghold,
and blazes' along the cres of the ridge.
There was roar of cannon and musketry: a
storm of leaden and iron hail. The confed
erate line withered, and the dead and dying
strewed the dark valley. But there was not
an instant’s pause. Right up the steep they
went- The crest was gained. The enemy
were in flight—a few scattering shots reply
ing to the ringing cheers of the victorius con
“ Gen. Johnston had passed through the or
deal seemingly unhurt. His noble horse was
shot in four places; his clothes were pierced
4>y missiles, his boot-sole-was cut and torn by
a minie; but if he himself had received any
severe wound, he did not know it. At this j
Juoment Governor Harris rode up from the I
I right, elated with his own success and with |
klie vindication of his Tenneseeans. After a
lew words, Gen. Johnston sent him with an
■ order to Col. Statham, which, having deliv-
I ered, he speedily returned. In the meantime
! knots and groups of Federal soldiers kept up I
; an angry discharge of fire-arms as they re
treated upon their supports, aud their last
line, now yielding, delivered volley after vol
ley as they suddenly retired. By the chance
of war, a minie-ball from one of these did its
; fatal work. As General Johnston, on horse
back, sat there, knowing that he had crushed
in the arch that which had so long resisted
the pressure of his torces, and waiting until
; they should collect sufficiently to give the final
stroke, he received a mortal wound. It came
in the moment of victory and triumph from a
flying foe. It smote him at the very instant
when he felt the full conviction that the day
was won; that his own conduct and wisdom
were justified by results, and that he held in
his hand the fortunes of war and the success
of the Confederate cause. If this was not to
be, he fell as he would have wished to fall,
and with a happier fate than those who lived
to witness the overthrow and ruin of their
great cause. He had often expressed to the
writer a preference for this death of the sol
dier. It came sudden and painless. But he
had so lived as neither to fear nor shun it. It
| came to him like an incident of an immortal
life —its necessary part, but not its close.”

THE ERA OF DISCOVERY.
This is popularly claimed as a season in
which an epidemic of crime is raging. Never
did nomenclature make a greater mistake.
This is not a carnival of crime; it is an era
of discovery. The digging up of some poor
girl’s body, packed in a barrel, has unearthed
four probable murderers and procured the
arrest of seventeen persons. That poor rein- j
nant of a once lovely woman has brought to
light some shocking facts; that in homes,
humble and otherwise, twenty-two young girls
with luxriant black hair, with perfect teeth,
and small feet, are mourned as lost, and prob
ably murdered. How many blondes have
lately been made away with no one can tell
till another box with a different woman is dis
The case of “ Vicky Connor ” is added to
the list this morning. Four arrests have been
made, and the coroners are congratulating
' themselves. The new thing seems to be a

attends to detail, and simplifies mat-

I TWENTY CLAIMANTS.
I was told that some ten years ago a por-
L tion of a young tvoma'B rescued from the river
was brought to the morgue. The morning
1 papers made the description of the woman
public, and within two days twenty heart
. broken mothers, grief-stricken sisters and
anxious brothers sought in that awful frag
ment the features of a loved lost relative. It
was a saddening surprise to him then; but
his connection with the crimes of New York
go to show that deception, betrayal and shame
ful death are at all times working their dread
deeds in our midst. With the discovery of
some great crime comes an impulse of confes
sion to many criminals, so that just now part
ing with our male relatives in the morning we
can never tell with a degree of certainty to
what they will confess before night. The Sil
ver Lake horror has opened many dread
secrets. Already the returns are astounding,
and so many districts yet to be heard from
and seducers and doctors still coming in.
On or off the stage, there could not be
, found to-day two women more thoroughly un
like each other than the star who left and the
star just come at the “ Fifth Avenue Thea
tre." The rare young Kentucky goddess,
Mary Anderson, went off to Boston and began
her engagement to a 5i,600 house, and Mod
jeska floated in after her to the scented
• plaudits of all fashionable New York. The
one resembling the famous bourbon of her
native State, fresh, bracing and full of spirit;
the other like a cut bottle of Parisian per
The one utterly ignorant of the mysteries
of the toilette, the other complete mistress of
its every detail.
Mary Anderson ringing the echoes with her
magnificent voice, striding about in a whirl
wind of passion, and in the pauses occasioned
by outburts of enthusiasm, yet able to say
some girlish bit of nonsense convulsing to
those about her.
Modjeska, quivering with suppressed emo
tion, is incapable of a thought disconnected
from the part she may be enacting.
Mary Anderson has the most superb natu
ral gifts ever brought to the stage.
THE POLISH COUNTESS.
Modjeska has more acquired arts than any
: actress that ever lived. She is endowed with
] a voice sweet and sonorous, but not varied or
powerful. She has a fine, intelligent face,
! but not beauty. She is thin to actual lean
ness, and yet she is a lovely’ woman; a mar
i vellous elocutionist and a poet’s dream of
I female grace and fascination. She falls upon
the stage like a leaf fluttering to the ground.
| She rises like a wreath of smoke. In “ Ca
mille,” in the fourth act, Armand, in his fa
mous denunciation, holds the centre of the
scene. Modjeska falls upon her knees, her
back to the audience; when Armand, in the
climax of his passion, hurls her away, she
falls directly backward toward the audience,
as flat upon the stage, as an empty dress flung
along the floor. Then, as the guests are
called in, she suddenly floats upward with no
visible exertion, never touching the floor with
either hand, but just coming to her feet as if
invisible hands bore her up.
Modjeska is a gymnast, a trained athlete;
the costumes she wears in Camille are the
hight of prevailing fashion, the fashion uni
versally condemned by the straight-laced
papers in Europe. They are so tight in the
skirt that the ordinary sitting down and walk
ing round becomes a matter of more skill than
dancing the tight-rope.
How Modjeska floats about the stage, sinks
upon the fautuel in the centre, throws herself
full-length upon a couch at the side, walks
rapidly and nervously about in the agitation
of the scene in that gown, is a problem. It
shows every outline of the figure from the
shoulders to the knees. In fact, that's the
effect produced by all these new Parisian
creations. They have trials like crocodiles
surpentinely following evA-y movement, and
there doesn't seem to be two yards of mate
rial above the ankles.
THE NEW SONGTRESS. < #
*• Mr. Fred Rullman brought out his new j
found treasure, on 'Tuesday, at a private
hearing in Steinway hall. The house was
crowded by invitation alone, and the lady.
Mlle. Aline Alhaiza, made an instant suc
cess. She is a Spanish girl, with a complex
ion like a calla lily, that ivory whiteness com
bining so well with inky black hair and eyes.
She resembles Scott-Siddons in many ways. I
Beside color, she has the same high-bred |
style of face; a gleaming set of pearly teeth !
and a pretty mouth are ancessories before |
the fact, and the fact is established. Alhaiza j
. is a magnificent singer; her voice is rarely |
I sw’eet and powerful, and its cultivation ex
' ceeds that of Carlotta Patti or Di Murska.
The audience comprised all the prominent
musicians and ameteurs in the city who rap
turously received her. Altogether, Alhaiza
is one of the surprises of the season, and a
very great singer. Mr. Rullman, who has
been identified with the most famous prima
donna of modern times, is delighted with this
new’ voice, which promises lots of cash during
the winter and a perfect gold mine, when,
next fall, she will appear in opera in conjunc
tion with a tenor unearthed by the same im
pressario in a very romantic manner. This
, young man is in Milan at Rullman’s expense
finishing his course of studies with a view to
taking his position next year as the mascu
l line star of the Alhaiza Opera troupe.
’ THE COMPANION OF NAPOLEON.
* Speaking of Frederick Rullman (who is
I himself a grandfather), reminds me of his
' father, a surprising old gentleman who died
J last week at the age of 97.
, Maj. Rullman began his military career in
t 1805. He went through every battle of Na
-1 poleon, from Austerlitz to Moscow. He was
decorated with innumerable medals; he
counted among his treasures two letters from
the “Little Corporal,” and various orders
after Napoleon became emperor, written in
his own hand, and, one last note, lovingly
' kept and proudly read, came to him from the
rocky fastness of Helena, passed by the cour
tesy of Sir Hudson Lowe, the jailor, bated
ir by August Rullman as sincerely as the poor
prisoner was loved,
Maj. Rullman carried the famous order of
Napoleon which slaughtered thousands of
Austrians. They were on a frozen river,
advancing rapidly. Battalion after battalion
had reached the most central portion of the
vast sheet of solid ice, when the emperor
ordered Rullman to carry forth the orders to
the artillery to into the air." Those
who heard it were amazed, but Maj. Rullman
said his heart stood still as he took in the
awful meaning of that command. Two min
utes later the ponderous cannon balls went
rushing toward heaven, and then with crush-
I ing force fell amid the devoted wretches,
I breaking the ice in every direction and
drowning them by thousands. A charming
old man was August Rullman—living in the
past —by his hearthstone fighting in memory
his ancient battles over and over again; de
lighted to gain an appreciative listener to
whom he could pour forth the devotion to
Napoleon which animated his warlike old
heart to the last.
THE GREAT PEDESTRIAN.
The leading excitement of the week, in
this time, is the pedestrian match between
O’Leary and Hughes at Gilmore’s Garden,
where hundreds of spectators by day and
thousands by night exhibit a lively interest
in the most wholesome of all physical exer
cises. Fashionable promenaders of both
sexes, scores of doctors, editors and even
clergyman, and no end of miscellaneous curi
osity-seekers, huddle shoulder to shoulder
with the coarsest order of betting men around
circuit and the other a ninth —in which the
lithe Chicagoan and his uncouth rival foot
their seventy to eight miles a day. O’Leary,
in walking-costume suggestive of a subdued
circus-rider, “looks the winner all over,” as
the phrase goes, and is expected to cover 500
miles in the six days of the match should no
accident disable him. His is the outer or
larger ring, with one less lap to the mile
than the other. Hughes, grotesque in his
professional dress and awkwardly shambling
as a walker, shows to advantage only in run
ning, which he does often and with a long,
low stride more cat-like than deer-like. He is
a simple-minded, stubbornly ignorant, wholly
ungainly specimen of humanity, fairly fren
zied to beat his competitor, and winning much
sympathy by the dramatic pathos of his
seemingly hopeless struggle to that end. The
spectacle of these two men, so strongly con
trasted, silenty pitting their utmost powers of
vital stamina against each other, day after
day and night after night—intelligence and
experience, as it were, against sheer brute
determination —is worth the attention of oth
ers than mere idlers.

In the American exhibit our several canned
corned beef manufacturers are making vigor
ous effort to introduce this specialty to Euro
pean notice. 1 doubt that it will ever come
into general use here in its present form. I
found this doubt on the, to me, apparent fea
ture in French gastronomy that salted meats
are little eaten, at least in France. And, be
sides, there are so many different styles of
preserved meat in use here. All over Paris
is found a certain description of shop in
which these are kept. For a few cents you
may buy pate de foi gras, veal pique, sausage
of half a dozen varieties, and a dozen other
varieties of spiced and preserved meats. The
principal recommendation of our corned beef
may be its cheapness. It affords only one
style of taste. The French are both versatile
and fickle in this respect. Even among the
common people the palate is pleased by a far
greater diversity of methods than is common
with us. It was an American’s remark one
' day in my hearing: “Well, 1 never saw so
many shops devoted to different sorts ot eat
ing and drinking before as I find in Paris.
In almost every block inhabited by the labor
ing classes will be found one or two motherly
old dames, making a living by frying potatoes
and sometimes fish. A penny buys a plate
of fried potatoes, good measure. The work
man or workwoman here finds a cheap relish
to his or her bread and wine. Every house
wife knows that fried potatoes are a trouble
some dish. They require previous peeling,
slicing, frying —all of which mean time and
labor. There is one woman whose whole time
• is devoted to this one culinary product, who
, fries all the potatoes needed for an entire
| block, and who fries them better and cheaper
f than could be done in the family. Again,
’ many of the shops where fresh meat is sol I
‘ keep also bouillon and varions prepared
7 dishes. Now bouillon of good quality is sim

tage the Paris laborer has over ours, when, if
> temporarily indisposed or his appetite capri-
J cions (for laborers, in common with lawyers

1 CHEAPER THAN SUNLIGHT.
’ Correspondence of the Cleveland Leader.
f East Liverpool is beautifully situated, about
t fifty miles above Wheeling, on the banks ot
.. the Ohio, in the southwestern part of Coluni
l biana county, one hundred miles from Cleve
' land and forty miles from Pittsburg.
n Its natural gas-wells form one of the seven
’■ wonders of the world. They are situated in
r and around the city, and give it a continual
a supply of the finest light. The gas is almost
qc the uii’. It costs practically noth-
ins iiiumnTixidi: i ... 1
e the town. The city is lighted by it, and the
4 street-lamps blaze away at noonday as well
as at night. It costs nothing to let them
’ burn, and it takes trouble to put them out.
a Almost the entire fuel used in the town is
s this gas. It is conducted into the grates and
0 stoves in pipes and by it all the cooking and
3 heating is done. It does the business, makes
no dirt, is easy to kindle and costs very little.
1 Why, lor instance, the Dobbins House, where
s I am now writing, is a three-story brick, con
s taining ‘in the neighborhood of fifty rooms
T and a basement. Its light and fuel for the
’ whole house is composed of gas and costs
only Sl4 per month the year round, and its
'. light is not the flickering mockery of poorly
-3 manufactured gas, but a flame which approx
r imates in its brilliancy that of the electric
But the question is, how long will this last?
1 Will these wells continue to send forth their
s streams of light-giving power throughout the
, centuries, or will they die away in the course
ot a short time? This, of course, no one can
tell. The prospects are, however, very good
1 for the future. The first well discovered now
■ burns as brightly as when it was first opened,
and for the last twenty years has never flagged
. in its brilliancy, and none of those now in
operation have ever shown any signs of giving
out. For years Liverpool used manufactured
gas, never dreaming of the rich supply that
was wasting away daily under its feet. The
poor quality of this caused Col. H. R. Hill,
in 185.9, to experiment with and open the first
gas well in this vicinity. A well was dug,
being some four hundred and fifty feet deep,
and a pipe laid. That well has been furnish
ing fuel and light to several houses, producing
the steam for a large engine and burning pot
tery-kilns every day for over twenty years.
The great beauty of the gas pipe is the en
tire absence of smoke and dirt, and when in
an open grate playing through a burning iron
log, made in the imitation of wood, or over
lumps of coke or red-hot fire-brick, it has all
the cheerfulness of an open coal fire or an
old-fashioned cointry fire-place, with none of

I must darn them an inch in depth with the I
heaviest silk, just as working-women darn

DEFEATS FOR DISRAELI.
London Letter to the New York Tribune.
The election in the pottery districts of Staf
fordshire, which was announced last week, in
which a Liberal was returned in the place of
a lory who had resigned, by a majority of
300, was a serious blow to the serenity of the I
Tory party, but that has been followed by an- \
other this week. The Marquis of Lome's ac-I
ceptance of the Governor Generalship of |
Canada has involved the resignation of his 1
seat for Argyllshire. Though sitting as a Lib-I
eral throughout all this controversy, Lord 1
Lome has been unable to resist the Court in- I
fluence, and he has voted as a Tory. Before 1
the election was announced, Mr. Malcolm, the I
Tory member for Boston, threw up the seat
he already possessed, in order to go to the •
North and contest with Lord Lome’s younger I
brother the seat which has been in the Argyll i
family for generations. The result has been
a triumph for Lord Colin Campbell of 355 |
votes. Lord Colin, unlike his brother, de- i
nounced the government policy, and as Mr.
Malcolm supported it. and the late member
had supported it, it follows that the defeat of;
Mr. Malcolm is a defeat of the government. ■
