IU7 Telegraph to the Pittsburgh Gazette.)
LONDON, Sept. 13.—The Daily News
contains another letter from Wm. 'Howitt
on the charges against Lord Byron. He
says Lady Byron has condemned herself
by the breach of an honorable silince.
Irrepairable wrong was done . Byron, by
the destruction of the papers containing
his juStification,• and a solution of the
question is impossible except on exparte
Dr. Forbes Winslow, in a public com
munication on the. same subject, holds
that the theory of the mental aberation
of Lady Byron cannot be maintained.
The Times, in an editorial today, com
menting on the Emperor's illness and
the publication of the Senalus Consultum, -
says the person of the Sovereign is of
secondary importance if personal gov
ernment .is ended. It matters little
who is Emperor or Regent, the essential
question is who is Minister, on' what
terms does he hold office, and on what
principles does he condnat the ad
ministration. No one can govern except
through the Cabinet and enjoying the
confluence of the majority of the people.
PARIS, September . 13.—The to pest

and communication in every direction
was temporarily interrupted.
The Emperor's health Is better to-day.
It is asserted the Empress' will set out
again on her voyage to the east..
GEM. Prim, while at Vichy, had a con
ference with the Spanish Ambassador
to England and. Prance on the subject of
the communication received from Wash
ington. - It is rumored that the disposi
tion of the people of the United States to
interfere in the affairs of Cuba was de
nounded at the conference se an act of
ingratitude to Spain, and the hope was
expressed that Spain would reply ener
geticaby to the officious manifestations
of the Americans.
PARIS, Sept,. 13.—There is no, authority
for the rumo r purporting to state what
took place at the conference of General
Prim and the Spanish Ambassador at

for intermeddling in the Cuban question,
and thinks the Spanish government
should resent their lnterferenoe.
The Late Digester—Peeling Among the

(By Telt graph to the Pittsburgh Gaisette.l
SCRANTON, Pa., September 13.—There
is little subsidence of the feeling among
the miners concerning the disaster. and
the new theory , developed by the testi
niony is discussed with vehemence, and
the probability that the incendiarism
will be proved is eagerly watched for.
It is generally and sincerely believed
that the shaft was flied, but no miner is
so unjust now to charge the crime upon
any nationality, nor is It even supposed
that the person committing the horrible
act intended to accomplish the death of
a . single miner, but only to frighten
them and stop the working of the mine for
an indefinite period. Acrimonious feeling
have existed and always has, between
the Welsh and other nations, but never
produced any outrage of consequence
upon either person or property, and the
nationality.that suffered almost exclu
sively by the disaster, is ready to ad
mit that the first outbreak ofrevenge
fnl feelings would not have been
of such a diabolical character. That the
shaft was tired they believe. but no-.

Devore Lodge I. 0 . 0. F.—Dedication
of the New Hall.
Yesterday afternoon over two hundred
members of the order of Odd Fellows in
this city, embarked on the train for
Wilkinsburg, to participate in the dedi
catory exercises of the new hall of Devore
Lodge. The hail is located in the second
story of a building owned by the lodge,
and specially constructed for the pur
pose. Through the princely liberality
of Mr. W. H. Devore, after whom it is
named, the furnishing and fitting up of
the building is of the most perfect char
acter, and not excelled by anything of the
kind west of the mountains.
The visitors from Pittsburgh were met
at the station by the members of "De

by the Great Western Brassiliand to the
Hall, when the dedicatorp ceremonies
and installation of the officers took place.
The services were of that impreisive and
beautiful character prescribed for such
occasions and were conducted by the
Grand Master of the Order assisted by a
number of other officers of the Grand
,Lodge. At the conclusion of these cere
monies the Hall was thrown open to vis

in a short time was crowded with ladies
and gentlemen from the surrounding

The Connellsville Railroad and Cherry
A meeting of the owners of property
on Cherry alley was held at the Second
Ward School House last evening.
Dr. Biddle Arthurs was called to the
chair, when the call for thomeeting was
read, requesting all property holders and
agents for property on Cherry alley to
meet for the purpose of taking some ac.
tion in reference to the occupancy pf
that thoroughfare by the Connellsville
Railroad Company's track. Mr. Arthurs
said he thought that matter had been
settled by the action of Councils.
Mr, George W. Leonard explained that
he had been watching the matter care
fully and thought there was cause for
alarm on the - part of the property hold
-ers in the vicinity. He then reviewed
the matter at some length, and contend
ed that undue influences were being
used to accomplish the designs of the .
Company. That several newspapers
had published articles in. favor of the
Cherry alley route, one of which he was
satistled had been "bought over,7 while
the circumstances favored a similar con
chision in regard to the others.
Tile speaker continued his remarks
at some length, and finally closed by
suggesting that a committee be appointed
to watch the movements of the railroad
company, with arilew to prevent a grant
of the right of way through Cherry alley.
The Committee was accordingly ap
pointed, as follows : Dr. Biddle:Asthurs,
George W. Leonard. J. R. Weldin, Ste
phen A. Vetter, T. B Hamilton, A. S.
Bell, David Sims, John C. Dunn, R.
The ni3eting , then adjourned, Dr.
Arthura announcing that the Committee
would meet at his,oillce Monday evening
at seven o'clock.

filled to its utmost capacity last- even
