Several cases of cholera. including three
deaths, have occurred in what is known as
the Spouty district, a portion of the city
bounded by 62d and 70th streets, and 80th
and 10th avenues, occupied by squatters.
\Tbe condition of the - neighbethood is
wretched, and the foul air arisingl from
stagnant water and thillthy habits of the
residents have been tcause of the dis
ease. The Bpard of Health have already
abated the nuisance and thoroughly purl
fled the district by ;disinfectants.: The
cases which have occurred are not numer

GEN. BUTLER DEFENDS HIMSELF
The speech' which Gen. Butler obtained
leave to print to-day in reply to Senator
Henderson charges the Senator with
choosing the Sabbath for his speech, for the
reason that he (Mr. Butler) had gone home,
and there would be, no reply. He (Mr.
lintler) had, however, been detained by an
accident. The Committee had made no
charge against the Senator. They only
carefully detailed the evidence before
'them. This evidence Mr. Butler
summarizes, and ' says It is the in
ference from these facts which 'seems to.
so enrage the Senator. When 'a Fowler
shoots at a black bird. or other winged
vermin in thicket, (says Butler,) he can
always tell by theAluttering in the bushes
whether the shot has told. The Senator
'flops. Ho (Mr. Butler) should treat the
Senates as Uncle Toby did the fly which he
caught buzzing about his oar. Carrying it
to the window, as he let it out of his hand
he pityingly said: "Go, poor devil, there is
room enough In the world for both thee and

with -muck violence. The troops of the
Mikado are in possession of all the ports

of Stets Bashi, the ex-Tycoon, was at the
head of a revolt against the spiritual Em

of the Tycoon is very stronw. There had

'forces in the vicinity of Yeddo, but no de
cisive successes are reported on either side.
It was thought the war- between the two

by the Mikado and Tycoon.

three o'clock by a noise as if s.orne one
was prowling through the house. Getting
up and going into the entry she met a matt
with his arm full of provisions coming
from the kitchen. Seizing him she called
for her brother. who slept in an upper
chamber. The burglar at first triedlo break
loose from her grasp, but failing in tills
he dropped his load and dealt her a terri
ble blow with his first,which at once felled
her to the door. Recovering immediately
she took hold of him once more, but twice
the fellow, exasperated by her bravery
and determination, , struck her above the
temple with some instrument, inflicting a
very painful but not - serious wohnd, and
thus succeeded in malting, his escape be-
fore her brother could arrive.
About twelve o'clock.yesterilay two men
went into a confectionary store on McKee

Evans, and called for mineral water. Mrs.
Evana went to the cellar to get it for them
and men she returned they had departed.
She paid no .attention to the matter until
her husband came in. lie went to look at
a watch which was ustislly kept hanging
In the store,- to see whatitime it was, bnt the
watch was not there. iEfe asked his wife
what she had , done with it, which brought
to her . recollection the customers who' had
disappeared during her vigil. to the cellar.
It appears they knew. that the mineral
water was kept in the cellar and called for
.it merely as a ruse to* get the' lady - out of
the room to assist them in their 'pilfering
operations. No clue as to who the thieves
are has yet been obtained.

and Butler street, in the Sixteenth ward.
The fire was fortunately disoavered before

promptly extinguished. The investigation
of the case by the Fire; Marshal, Maj. Mur

been Sorcibly entered and the money draw

the well-grounded supposition that it was -
the work of an incendiary. No clue as yet
has been obtained which would lead to the
apprehension of the guilty party.
Officer Gumbert yesterday arrested .Tho.
