6 MULHOLLAND QUITS. Th© Australian Boxer Weakens After Twenty Hounds. There was not a very large crowd at tho Clunie Opera House last evening to see the Mulholland-Morrisey glove contest. Interest in these affairs seem to have died out somewhat lately—probahly on ac count of the high price of admission de manded. Last night's contest was characterized by a sensational finish. The men had fought bitterly and desperately lor nine teen rounds, and then in the twentieth I Mulholland, who apparently had ! the best of the contest up to j that time, suddenly B^ve np the contest and left the ring. There was no "fake" about it, yet the only explana tion Mulholland had to olfer was tliat he "was going back to Australia in tho morning, and he didn't want to fight all night." The Australian is an exceptionally clever boxer, and did some telling work all through the contest on Morriscy's head and neck. Morrisey, however, kept up a constant tattoo in the region of Mulholland's heart, and it was p...

New York, March 20,—Lawrence Bar rett, the tragedian, died this morning at the Windsor Hotel, of heart failure. He was unconscious but a short time before hi> death. His wife and Dr. Chambers, of this city, were with Mr. Barrett when he | breathed his last.

Following is the report prepared by tho majority of the committeo appointed by tho Assembly to investigate the charges against Assemblyman Bruner. It was presented to the Assembly yesterday afternoon by Chairman Bledsoe, but the Assembly reiused to receive it until to day, when it was announced the minority '_ report would be presented.

The General had been suffering for tbe past three weeks with an affection of the heart, aggravated by a cold caught soon after General Sherman's funeral. The physician had been trying to keep his strength up for some days, but his ad vanced age had given littlo hope for his recovery from tlie beginning of his ill ness. The General did not seem to suffer in the least, and was conscious to the last. Tlur immediate cause of death was heart failure, the result of a degeneration of the heart, due in a measure to cold.

THIRTY YEARS AGO. Lincoln's Memorable Journey to the i National Capital in 1861. ■ How a Sacramento Lawyer Proved His Point, But Lost nis Money— Some of tho Old Hussars. While Lincoln was making his mem- t orable journey to Washington,to be inau gurated as President, many interesting things occurred. At one station he start ed in to tell a story, and before he had ; half finished the train started off, and the people at the station never learned where the joke came in. At tho next station somebody told him that several of the country folks had run after the train and i were thero among the crowd, anxious to hear the rest ofthe story. So Lincoln got the conductor to wait while he told it all over. At Silver Creek, Ohio, Lincoln had spoken a few words from the rear plat iorni of his car, when he stopped and asked the name of the place, "Silver Creek," remarked a bystander. "Silver i Creek ? Why, I remember I have a lady j correspondent at Silver Creek. Not long ago she wrote me a lett...

6 MUSIC AND DRAMA. Gillette's Comedy Hit "All the Comforts of Home." Tbo "Little Tycoon" to the Front Again-Amusoment*. in the Great American Metropolis—Flashes From the Footlights or Many Theaters. A. P. Dunlap, writing from New York on tho Mth inst., speaks of the amuse ments of tho week as follows: Four new plays, and a shift at many of the playhouses has mado the week exceedingly lively, although all combined failed to dniw heavy on the amusement-loving public. This may probably be because all tbo Elays woro serious in purpose, and ad not boon "circused," as are the pre vailing farce comedies. An afternoon trial at the Lyceum Theater of "Tho Old, Old Story," by Walter C. Bellows and Benjamin Boeder, both Americans, was givon on Monday. It is another attempt to mingle Wall street speculation with love affairs, but tho plot is improbable, and the character unnatural. The play runs one act ovor where it siiould end; it lacks cumulative interest, and tho dia logue is commonplace and...

A LIGHT ON THE SUBJECT. (Written tor the . v innAY Union by Lpn.] Tho 12 -o'clock gun had just boomed over the city of Halifax, echoing across the harbor and reverberating among the hills on the Dartmouth side, when two officers of the One Hundred and First Regiment strolled across the glacis from the citadel. Lieutenant Henry and Colonel Law rence, though occupying diflerent po sitions in the army, were sworn friends. Theirs was no ordinary friendship; it dated from the Egyptian war, when Henry had quickly thrown his cloak over a treacherous Arab's saber, pointed at the Colonel's back, Henry receiving half of the thrust intended for Lawrence. On this day, in June, 1882, Lieutenant Henry's face was a study in shadows, and tho shadows were the deepest in his brown eyes. The Colonel chatted on in his lively way for ten minutes beforo he noticed his friend's abstraction, then he stopped short and, linking his arm in Henry's, he said : "Old fellow, what is troubling you? You are blue—in...

8 POE, THE POET. I His Life in Fordham, as Recalled .-*.'■--■.-. by an Old Resident , Memories Awakened by the, Recent Death of Father Doucet, Poe's Inti mate Friend— Poo Cottage and "Annabel Lee." [From the New York Times.] A few weeks ago there died at Fordham <Xno of the last inhabitants who remem bered Edgar Allan Poe. and knew him intimately during the latter's two years' sojourn in that pretty little suburb. And ; to lovers and admirers of that much § slandered poet it will ever be matter for regret that tho Rev. Father Doucet (to whose death we have referred) did not leave us some authentic written or verbal • testimony as to the personality of the poet whose friendship he is said to have en joyed to an unusual' degree at a period ■perhaps the most interesting in Poe's varied and eventful life. From what little can be gathered now it would seem probable that this intimacy revealed to the reverend father many of those deli cate traits of a naturally reticent char acter whic...

OAKLAND WON. But Manager Robinson Thinks He Had a Close Call. lie Wants a South-paw Twlrler for Sacramento's Left-handed Team' of Hatters. To a stranger, it would have been diffi cult to tell yesterday which of the two clubs that played ball at Snowllake Park was the home team, if he attempted to distinguish by the applause bestowed by the audience. People attend ball games nowadays more for the purpose of see ing a good exhibition of the sport than for anything else. There was a time in Sacramento when the patrons of the game went out simply to yell and screech for their own nine. This was when there was local pride and a general wish that the homo club would win, no matter how many errors and bad plays it made. The players in those days were all Sac ramento boys, and about two-thirds of the audience knew them well enough to call them by their first names. But a revolution has taken place within the last six years, and the baseball patron goes out to see strange players engaged to ...

STRANGE ANIMALS. Laughing Jackass Bird of Australia -Why He Isn't Killed. How a Hmtfer Near Ballarat Was Badly Mystified—Flying Foxes—Tbe Glppsland Kann-roo and the Alba tross — A Prehistoric Feathered Giant—Mexican Jauk-Kabblts. The first time that the writer made the acquaintance of the laughing jackass was in the bird market of Sydney, Australia, ■where one was offered for sale confined in a huge wicker cage, but the sarcastic notes of this ludicrous bird were often heard afterward in its wild state, singing through the jungle. It is one of the most curious things the traveler meets in his wanderings. Mischievous, sly, droll, and without a particle of shyness, what a bird it is! Its plumage is white and black, presenting very little tail, but it is pro vided with a large, gawky head, a well rounded body, and is about the size of our domestic pigeon. The eyes are very large and gaze boldly at the observer, as if to pierce him through and through. This bird laughs almost exactly li...
