Poughkeepsie, Nov. 14.-Theside- wheel steamboat “ M o n itor,\ plying between Peekskill and New York, left the former place about 9 o’clock last night with 400 cans of milk and assorted freights. It was a bright moonlight nigfct with but a little wind. At 12:30 this morning she ran on the rocks off Glenwood, north of Yonkers, and sank to her main deck. The Peekskill tug “ Sarah E. Brown\ managed to get alongside of her and took off the milk and other freights and convey­ ed it to New York. W, rdlyatt of the tug says the officers and crew of the “ Monitor” including the pilot David Goetches, wereallasleep when the accident occurred. The “ M o n i­ tor’s’' bow now lies within twenty feet of the Hudson River Railroad track and her stern is sunk 10 the main deck. T h e force of the colli­ sion snapped all the iron rods which upheld her spars and her bottom ■was torn away by the rocks. The tug lay by her at dark to-night, but it is believed she cannot be got off and that the northwest wind -will tear her to pieces. She is owned by Captain Craft of Peekskill who bought her for $20,000, but before the accident she was not valued at more than $12,000. She -was par­ tially insured. No lives were lost nor was anyone hurt.

The son is about 21 years o f age and'keeps company with the Quinn girl evidently against the wishes of his family. It was assert­ ed in all earnestness by the Riley family that Miss Quinn went to a Mrs, Lockshin, a fortune teller, and bought the love pution from her, which -was given to young Riley, and which produced ttte desired ef­ fect. As proof that the love powder had worked, Mr. Riley said that un­ til last May his boy had never had a sore on his body. Siaice then he has suffered from innumerable boils. The woman denied having ever given Riley’s son any love powder, and said that the ci-arge was made against her only because Riley went with her against the wishes of his parents The Reo u:;«r put the ex­ amination down for biiday morn­ ing. -------- *-•> -------- T i m e I t w a s D o n e .

Roberts stated to a ^Buffalo Courier reporter that be m s on his way to Philadel­ phia to give the work of construc­ tion bis personal attention, and the plans and specifications are excep­ tional. The locomotive is to weigh thirty- eight tons, and will comply with the s.andard gauge. The drive-wheels will be six feet in diameter and the forward trucks and those on the teu- der will be made of paper, which will end ure more strain and wear than steel o r iron. The wheels will be of the patern known as broad tread, which will enable the loco­ motive to run on roads of either 4 feet inches or 4 feet 10 inches gauge, The most importaut fea­ ture o f the engine will be the intro­ duction of Robert’s patent cylinder and piston, which has proved itself capable of saving at least twenty per cent, in steam pressure. -------- .,•#*. -------- Decorated Chamber Sets at re­ duced prices, to close out.
