The gathering of the Grand Army men in national encampment at Boston promises to bo one- of the greatest events in the history of this historic order. It is estimated from the information furnished as to who will be present that 75,000 men will be in lino. Akahia is so far away and our relations with hor are so few that the fact that 400 porpons are daily dying in ber capital from oholera, creates little attention among us. Tbat number of deaths in a European capital would alarm tbo entire civilized world. DETAILS OF THE EXECUTION The Curat Did Not Rill Instantly Ba! Life Destroyed tjy Pleated Shocks. THE FIRST EXPERIMENT A FAILURE The Victim of the Law's Vengeance Goes to His Death Calmly. WHAT IS SAID OF TEE EXECUTION The Mormons have been badly beaten in both Salt Lako City and Salt Lako county in the August elections. Evidently t tic Liberal element is growing steadily, una this means sooner or later that this spleudid rich Territory will be admitted to tbo Union as a State with an anti-polygamy constitution. The California Courts have rendered another and, bo far as they are concerned, a, final docision in the case of Mrs. Sarah Altbea Merry, against the ostato of the Jate Senator Sharon.

An anonymous letter written in French was delivered on Thursday last to Mr. Claude Rosaire, a young gentleman of twenty seven, residing in handsomeapatt-ments on the West Side in Chicago,and its contents revealed to him bis parentag*. and mystoriouB oiroumetance connected with bis life, matters which had been previously a hidden secret to him. The story of Mr. Rosaire is a carious ont, in wbloh sorrow and villainy aro strangely mingled. He was brought up by a Canadian family in Michigan and led to believe he waa one of them, but bis supposed father, four years ago, in a fit of anger, declared that he was not bis son. He then went to Chicago, aud tbe mystery of bis birth has, it is believed, been revealed by the letter referred to. The writer says: "People like myself do not suffer with remorse, only in the valley of tbe darkness of death. First, yoa are legitimate and tbe child of marriage. I cannot keep tbe secret because I oannot retaiu life much longer, and because ail human vengeance seems useless. I oan reveal to yon almost all your life. Until the fith of October, 1884, yon believed yourself the son of George Latham, ot L-, Michigan. In a moment of great anger he told you that yon were not a natural son. That night yon left and you have never spoken one to the other since. They believe yon dead. George Latham, I am sure, believe* yon to be what he has said, bnt he regrets bitterly that be baa betrayed the confidence of hiB sitter. "Your grandmother, the mother of your mother, was the Daobessede Saint Allaize, of Normandie. Her.marriage was very miserable, Duke de Saint Allalte being well known. After having- spent the fortune of your grandmother be commenced against her a suit for divorce. Having lost love and courage, tbe Duchess fled to America, taking witb her bei only ohild, a baby-your mother, Victoria de Saint Allaize. But a little while after her arrival in America the Duchess entered the Convent of tbe Ursulines at New Orleans, where she died five years later. Her obild Victoria remained in tbe eare of the Bisters nntil the age of eighteen, when her great talent for mnsio cansed tbe Mother Superior to have her ohoose between the world and the Convent, "During her probation she met and loved a confederate soldier, Claude Heotor Hosairo. This man, yonr father, waa only of French extraction, traoing his French blood from his great-grandfather, who' was a Creole. The 6th ot October, 1863, tbey were married, as yoa will see by the enclosed certificate. Immediately tbey iled to Canada. Rosaire was not the only man who loved Victoria de Saint Alliaze, but be was tbe only man she loved. I never pardoned them, and followed them as a hunting dog would. In Hay of the next year yoa were born in Quebec. Three weeks after your birth I stole yoa from yoar nurse and oarried yon to the south of Ontario, among a eolony of Canadian Quakers. Marguerite became yonr foster-mother. Mo matter how, some women love strangely. 'Then I returned to Quebeo to seek my revenge. It arrived, but with little satisfaction. Your f atber, oraied with grief on account of your loss, threw himself from the head of the fort. I waa waiting for Victoria to follow me, but she waa made of iron. She came and went with a faoe of iron, and then suddenly and mysteriously disappeared. I never found trace of ber. She must have entered a convent, for only those walls oould elnde my vengeaaoe.. I oannot write more became I will not. I hate you as I hated ber. I bare greatly enjoyed to Bee yoa straggle, knowing tbat it was useless, for my maledictions net on the fruit of their marriage. Ton will nevor be able to discover me. Perhaps you can find your mother in spite of all, but then it will be too late for yonr vengeance." The letter is unsigned. Witb it was sent the original dooument certifying to tbo marriage of Rosaire's mother and father. Mr. Rosaire will make every effort to find bis mother, aud will reach all Catholic convents through tbe country. His interest in tbe authorship of this letter is overshadowed in his desire to find tbe whereabouts of his mother and tbe resting place of his dead father. Id tha Bbady Grove. There were over three hundred persons attended tho Baptist Sunday school picnio yesterday. The picnicers returned to tbe city about seven o'clock in the evouing.
