The taste for coffee itself hiul u hard struggle at first to find a general welcome among the more select circles.

Tom Ochiltree will be a Demo- crat before his term expires. It is the only way his re-election can be assured. It is told that Vanderbilt and Gould while in New York city which is their home always keep near them armed guards. While there have been thousands of murders in New York city during the last forty-four years there have been but thirty-seven hangings. An exchange very properly says that those that complain most about a newspaper are those who make a habit of borrowing it from some real subscriber who does not complain. Fon eighty years this French spoli- ation matter hits been on the tapis. Webster and Clay in their congres- sional lives were on committees that reported in favor of the claims and y-t they are not paid. The Pall Mall Gazette acknowl- edges the fact that at this time the English money market is controlled by New York speculators and that the Yankees are gathering in the shekels lost by the Englishmen. Suicide and duels are carrying off so many officers of the...

AVilkie who for sometime pxst has Ihvq confined in the county for lunacy was yesterday set at lilier- ty.he having sulHeiently recovered to warrant his release. On Sunday evening and Monday morning some oilicers of this city went to the International and Great North- ern southbound trains to intercept Ik-rt Elam who was reported to be on his way to Laredo. Elam is the Rent who murdered Henry Daniels in JJaniels; and a private telegram re- ceived in this city stated that he was supposed to have sloped for Mexico via Laredo hence the watchfulness of our ever vigilant oilicers. There was no use whatever in hunt- ing for news Monday.

I will now relate it briefly: The De Courcy family la an ancient one and is universally known to all old residents of Louisiana. It was one of the wealthiest and most intluential before the war. le Courcy was the owner of the famous Magnolia planta- tion as well as two other almost as notable and expensive plantations in the Ooelousas luirish. This alUuunt Creole while young and wild and sowing his wild oats took for his mistress the favorite grandchild of Marie Lavon the famous Voudoo tjueen who died in Louisiana about two years ago. In her rage and iudiguatioa the voudoo oueen uttered a terrible curse and at the annual voudoo orgiosaud iucanta- tions held by the negroes ou the bants of Lake 1'ouchartrain wiuth solemn rites and diabolical ceremony record- ed...

T THE STATESMAN. AUSTIN. TEXAS. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. From Tuesday's Dully. I The 1. Jf. E. Church Burned. At an evidence that providence al- ways favors the just no matter who mav be the loser a fire was sent to bleia The Statesman reporter yee- .teruay just as he was wondering if Christmas and New Years would both pass by without excitement. The market-hou.se bell sounded the alarm for the third ward about one o'clock yesterday afternoon and the crowd of excitement hunting citizens rushed over to the Raymond plateau whence was seen issuing a dense volume of smoke. It was the African Methodist Episcopal church in Homes. Owing to the tlimsy character of the struc- ture the high wind prevailing and fact that the fire was well under way when discovered the house and con- tents were a total loss. The tire de- partment was on hand promptly but as the hill on which the house stood is almost as high as the water reservoir a very small pressure of water only was obtained. Fortunately the dwe...
