Associated Press Dispatches.; Washington, Oct. 12.—There has been little change in Justice Miller's condition since early this morning. All day physicians and watchers have been gathered around the bedside, momen tarily expecting dissolution, and it has ■only been owing to his wonderful vitality that he lived through the day.

A Conjunction of Eatables and Drinkables, With an Ode to the Moon Thrown In, Causes Him To Be Robbed of All His Wealth. The tall young man who was going to Seattle turned up at the meeting again on Saturday night and seemed wealth ier than the week before. He was just as generous and talkative as he had been on the previous occasion, and insisted upon treating all around before his last appearance—positively his last appear ance, and no theatrical humbug about it. He said he had fixed it with the boys on the road—four divisions at $2 apiece—up to Frisco, and first-class traveling all the time. He was made an honorary member of the club, with power to institute subordinate lodges wherever he went, as long as his money held out.

J. Henderson died yesterday at the house of a Mrs. Ponnell. She now says that before death he told her he was really Charles William Quantrell, the famous Missouri and Kansas guerrilla, who, it was always supposed, had been killed by the federal soldierß in Kentucky near the close of the war. Mrs. Pannell says she has his papers, but will not give them up until she verifies the matter herself.

Sprague, of New York. Of course his address was received attentively, but it cannot be •aid that he was speaking to people in their own language. His listeners doubtless understood part of his re marks* for he was applauded two or three times, but to the majority of the people it was evident that understand ing came only with difficulty. Now, how did the new invention sound? Well, there was a great predominance of the European a and i (or cc) and of the long o.
