There is no city in the American Union that can now add to the portrait gallery «f the country so much female loveliness as this metropolis. Years ago the girls of Petersburg were put down as being the most beautiful on the earth, hut since the war, it is said, the beauties have become fair matrons and the young girls of the Cockade lay no claim to exceeding pulchritude. Richmond's beautiful women are now from home and The Truth dares not conceal the fact that the various watering-places and mountain resorts are crowded with little beauties from almost every street of Richmond.

The Truth. MONDAY EVENING JULY 25 DIED OF HYDROPHOBIA. The Terrible Death of Delia Bentcliff, a Beautiful Bridgeboro Girl. Philadelphia Presß. BevERLY, N. J., July 23.—Delia Bentcliff, a beautiful young girl of 20 years, died on Wednesday night, near Bridgeboro, of hydrophobia, and notwithstanding the care of the firl's family and of Dr. Currie, of ieverly, the physician, to suppress all the horrible features of the case, the facts have now become generally known. Delia Bentcliff is the daughter of Samuel Bentcliff, a farmer residing between Bridgeboro' and Beverly. Last March she visited some friends at New Albany, which is in Cinnaminson Township, four miles from the pretty suburban village of Riverton. One afternoon, in passing the home of David Hunter, she was attacked by a large bulldog, which, on account of his general bad temper had been cliaiued for some months. The dog, it is said, had been excited by some passing tramps, and was angry. Miss Bentcliff in passing by said a f...

The Truth. MONDAY EVENING JULY 25 MES. LANGTRY IN CALIFORNIA. How the Famous Actress Lives while Waiting for Her Naturalization Papers [San Francisco Chronicle.] A reporter yesterday recognized in the manly companion of Mrs. Langtry and Mi9S Kate Pattison, of the Langtry Company, on their afternoon drive, no less a personage than Frederick Gebhard, of New York. There are few handsomer or more shapely men in the country than Mr. Gebhard, and few who, in the circle of their acquaintance, are more deservedly popular. His broad shoulders and classic features would be recognized anywhere, and he is a most fitting companion, physically considered, to the fair Lily of Jersey. Inquiry led to the development of the fact that Mr. Gebbard arrived in San Francisco simultaneously with Mrs. Langtry—indeed, he came in the same car, and he has resided in the same house wilh her in the Mission. He divides his time between the residence, the Baldwin Theatre and these drives about the city, in which M...

The Truth. TUESDAY EVENING™ JULY 26 Compensation for Slaves. MARYLAND'S EMANCIPATION—INTERESTING RECOLLECTIONS OP JUDGE BOND. i Baltimore Sun.] The recent article in the Sun relative to the emancipation of slaves in Maryland by the constitution of 1864, a year before the adoption of the thirteenth amendment to the constitution of the United States abolishing slavery, and making the point that consequently the thirteenth amendment did not deprive any citizen of Maryland of his slave property or afford any ground for a claim for compensation therefor, has elicited the following letter from Mr. Otho Z. Muncaster, of Georgetown, D. C.: " I see in your paper an article as to Government pay for slaves of Maryland, and reason assigned why they should not be paid for by the State's art, prior to the emancipation proclamation. This would appear plausible had not Abraham Lincoln employed Francis Blair, Sr., and Hon. ltichard I. Bowie to canvass the State of Maryland (as she had not seceded), ...

Our people cannot too soon establish works for the manufacture of every character of goods that are used in our midst. It is well enough to make fun of .our Yankee friends occasionally, but if we make only fun and buy all our supplies from them they can afford to be laughed at the year round. So, also, is it with Ohio and the Great West.

IFrom Saddle and Moccasin.] "A lot of youngsters were collected one Suuday afternoon round a badger hole in which I heir was a mighty obstinate old badger—one of these old toughs that you could knock sparks out of with a hammer. Any how, the young sports had put all their swell imported terriers in to him, and the old badger had come out on top every time—at least, he hadn't 'come out' on top, because he hadn't come out at all; but when he and the dogs got to chewing one another underground he appeared to have away ahead the finest appetite.

The Truth. WEDNESDAY EVENING JUDY 27 People's Column. All contributions to this column are gratefully received, but the management will not be responsible for anything that appears therein. Lewis H. Blair. To the Editor of the Truth : When Mr. Blair a few months ago attacked the workingmen of this city and did not want them to get a dollar and a half for their labor, the Democracy chuckled for joy, and the Law and Order League silently wept tears of adoration. But! presto change. Mr. Blair now comes to the front and makes the assertion that the Democrats have suppressed the colored voje and carried the elections by fraud, terrorism and bulldozing. No one understands It. Can it be that the Law and Order League intend to attack the Democratic party? Blair's posi tion in the Law and Order League as a high priest seems to give color to this. But members of the Law and Order League to-day on the streets are loudly denouncing Mr. Blair, and say he is a lunatic, and should be put in an asy...

Virginia has again been disgraced by the hanging of a man in Surry county who had not been tried before court and convicted. With such a state of affairs it will take many years to put the Old Dominion where she belongs. It is not yet forgotten that there lives in this State a man for whose supposed murder another man was lynched. Such infamy ought to be abated, and if the government has not the power to do it, or the will, a change ought to be made. The Alexandria Item has the following.

The Truth. THURSDAY EVENING JULY 28 A Mitrailleuse. I National Republican.l Captain Busby, of the Treasury, seems to have lost his " bearings." Time was when he opened bis mouth; now he is not inclined either to fish or cut bait. He will neither refund the bonds nor go into the market and purchase them at a premium. Yet the money gorge in the Treasury is increasing daily. Our exports in June were thirteen million dollars less than our imports. The President has not sufficient faith in the Fiftieth Congress to call an extra session. Yet the Ohio Democracy declares his hands are "consecrated" for the work, and that he has more conscience than Lincoln and more courage than Orant. What this administration needs is nerve—that kind of nerve that enforces law,' as required by the Constitution. Two hundred and twentyfive millions of premiums on Government bonds has more influence with this administration than the saving of $293,000,000 of interest for the people. Three hundred and sixty-fou...

The Truth. FRIDAY EVENING JULY 29 Mr. Blaine's Possibilities. [New York Herald. 1 The argument which now holds sway in many Republican journals, that Mr. Blaine is the obvious and inevitable candidate for the Republican nomination, invites one or two observations, which we offer in the interest of Republican harmony. This is Biaine's fourth campaign for the Presidency. He ran against Conkling in 1876, and was beaten by Hayes. His canvass in 1880 culminated in Garfield's triumph. In 1884 he defeated Arthur* to bedefeated by Cleveland. Jf he should fail in 1888, there in no reason for discourage ment. Blaine cau run in four more campaigus, and not be much older than Harrison when Harrison was elected. There is no reason why the Blaine leaders should not organize a nineteenth century Blaine boom, running like the national debt, and expiring in the twentieth century. Such a course would save infinite trouble to Republican aspirants, who could lay aside Presidential hopes and content the...
