SATUEOAY EVENING, GOTO BEE 15. The Valley Virginian says: "One thiog is as certain a* anything in Ihe future can be, and that is that'our chairman' |Mahone) will never again be empowered to represent Virginia in the United States Senate, whether the republi? cans or democrats have a majority in the next Legislature. No candidate will dare to make bis canvass in behalf of 'our chair man' as the next senator, and this fact ought to satisfy any reasonable man that it is sui ridai for his'friends to make support of hin? thete-it of political orthodoxy, and insinuate infidelity to party dutv against tuiy one who is not willing to worship at his feet and ac cept him, with all his glaring faults, as the sole embodiment of the republicanism of Virginia." If the Virginian be sincere in this expres? sion of its opinion, and we have no rea?c?n to doubt that it is, it should by all incans advocate the election of the democratic candidates for the legislature, for if the re publicans secure a ma...

SATURDAY EVENING, OCTOBEB 15. The Crown Prince's Affliction.?Dr. W. Nelson, of New York, who has just re? turned from Germany, says when he was in Baden Baden a fow days ago he was as? sured by physicians and other gentlemen who had trustworthy sources of information that the condition of the Crown Prince Frederick is unquestionably precarious. It ii admitted now that he is suffering from cancer of the throat, known as tobacco smok? er's cancer. The case is very similar to that of Gen. Grant. The Prince wa3 for many years an inveterate smoker. Io spite of all official opinion? to the contrary, German physicians consider the Prince already a doomed man. The very severe caustics used have deetroj-ed not only the tissue primarily affected, but the parts themselves. So severe has the treatment been that some portion of the bony tissue is now visible. "Conservative Germans/' Dr. Nelson add? ed, "view the probability of the Crown Prince's early demise with much alarm. The Emperor, already...

THURSDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 20. A Double Tragedy.?A shocking trage? dy occurred in the suburbs of Pottsville, Pa., about ten o'clock yesterday morning. About a year ago Henry Shaffner, a widow? er, aged seventy four, married Mrs. Smed ley, a widow, aged fifty-eix. SbafTner was comparatively well off, but of a penurious and morose disposition, and the couple never lived harmoniously. Mrs. Shaffner had left her husband several months ago on account of abuse, and had intended leaving him again yesterday. They occupied a small dwelling on Walnut street, Jalappa. Yesterday morning the next door neighbors t.eard the couple quarreling, and shortly afterward the report of Eeveral pistol shots. Rushing in, they found the door of an up? stairs room locked, and breaking it open, discovered Mrs. Shaffoer lying upon her face in the garret stairway, with a bullet wound in her back, and near by her hus? band lying upon the door, shot in the mouth. Both were dead. Near the body of Shaffuer lay a 32-c...
