SHOCKING ACTS OF BODY-ROBBEBS.—A Press despatch from Washington, published by the New York Times under the title of North Carolina Coast Savages," states that Lieutenant Walter Walcon, As- sistant Inspector of the Life-saving Service on the North Carolina coast, in obedience to orders from Superintendent Kimball, has made a thorough inves- tigation of all the circumstances in relation to the wreck of the United States ship Huron. It is stated that the testimony taken shows that there was most extraordinary delay on shore in sending information to the nearest life-boat station, which was less than three miles distant. Lieutenant Walton gives in detail an account of the efforts of the life-saving crew as soon as they were apprised of the disaster, and of a number o2 people living en the shore, to save the unfortunate > ictims, and con- cludes by saying: It is shocking to record that out of ninety-one bodies found (about twelve of whom were officers) not a single trinket such as wov ld be deemed a relic by the relatives of the dead was fo,ind on their bodies. Watches and chains, money, and sven finger- rings had been stripped off by those who fuost found the bodies as they were washed up. Good evidence is found in the case of Lieutenant Simons, whose third ■ and fourth fingers of the left hand had been scratched and gouged by the body-robbers in their haste t3 secure their ill-gotten loot." A REVERENTIAL hosier, who had the misfor- tune to be detained in Chicago over Sunday, while slowly sauntering down Wabash-avenue about the time of morning service, was brought to a halt oppo- site the Presbyterian church by the sounds emanating from the organ. The organist was playing one of those lively compositions with which the perform- ande of religious service is now usually commenced* Just then a gentleman passing into the church invited him to enter and take a seat. "Not exactly, mister, replied our friend; I ain't used to such doin's on Sunday; and, besides, I don't dance « WHEN my pa wouldn't let me go the ball," said a naughty little girl, I just set to, and had a bawl a home.
