Destruction on the Lower Wissfasippi. 
A dispatch from Memphis, Tenn., under date 
of March 1, says: "A hurricane of wind and 
rain last Monday night destroyed the last hope 
of holding the water at bay between Helena, 

three hundred miles. It was red-letter day in 
the history of the river and in the log of the

chairs of the presiding officers, being itself j go and coi 
undraped. The members of the House were 
early in attendance, all being arrayed in black. 
In the lobby, back of the Speaker's desk, 
the Marine Band was stationed, and at inter- 
vals, from 18 o'clock until noon, discoursed 
solemn music. Among the distinguished 
guests first to arrive were Judge Ban- 
croft Cyrus W. Field, and Admiral 
Warden, who took seats directly in front of 
the Clerk's desk. Among the guests who 
at an early hour occupied seats upon the 
floor wore General Sohenek and Generals 
Hoyt of Pennsylvania, and Bigelow, of Con- 
necticut: Gov. Foster, of Ohio, and Hamilton, 
of Maryland. At 11 JO o'clock Geus. Sher-

the dark attire of members of Congress who 
sat immediately behind them. The Supreme 
Court of the District, headed by Marshal 
Henry, were the next arrivals, Dr. Bliss was 
also in attendance. 

At precisely 12 o'clock the House was called 
to order by Speaker Keifer, and prayer was 
offered by the chaplain. The Speaker then 
said : "This day has been dedicated by the 
action of the two houses of Congress to ser- 
vices in commemoration of the life and death 
of James Abram Garfield, late President of the 
United States. This House is now assembled 
and ready to perform its part."

memorial services were then read by Clerk 

At 12:10 the Senate was announced, and all 
arose as the Senators, beaded by the officers of 
that body, entered and took the assigned seats. 
They were followed by the Chief Justice and 
Associate Justices of the Supreme Court, 
dressed In their robes of office. Again the as-

At 12:30, the orator of the day, James G.

opened by prayer by Chaplain Power, of the 
House, after which President Davis said : " This 
day is dedicated by Congress for memorial 
services to the rate President of the United 
States, James A. Garfield. I present you Hon. 
James G. Blaine, who has been fitly chosen as 
orator for this historical occasion." Mr. Blaine

Davis fell on him, planting his knee in

jumped off a train and hurt himself, and

sumption, produced, in my opinion, by

that this retreat was selected. Thoma 
Ell wood, the Quaker, had made Milton's 
acquaintance in London some years be- 
fore, when hunted out of house and 
home by the Bucks Justices, and read 
Latin to him in his lodging in Jewin 
street. When the plague grew fierce in 
the city, the blind poet bethought him 
of his one-time Secretary, and asked him 
to find him some retreat in his neigh- 
borhood. Ellwood took this "pretty 
box" for him; and it was here that he 
suggested to him the idea of "Paradise 
Regained. " Milton had handed him the 
manuscript of " Paradiae Lost" to pass 
his judgment on. "I pleasantly said to 
him," Ellwood relates in his Life, 
" ' Thou hast said much here of paradise 
lost, but what hast thou to say of para- 
dise found ?' He made me no answer, 
but sat some time in muse; then he 
broke off that discourse and fell upon 
another subject After the sickness was 
oyer and the city well cleansed, he 
turned thither; and, when afterward I 
went tfi wait on him there, he showed 
me his second poem, called 'Paradise 
Regained,' and in a pleasant tone said 
to me, 'This is owiug to you, for you 
put it into my head by the question yo« 
put to me at Chalfont, which before I 
had not thought of.'" 

Thomas H. Benton was by far the 

most striking figure in the Senate. 
When he arose to speak, his form tow- 
ered head and shoulders above every- 
body else. When excited or enraged, 
his large face, high cheek bones, heavy 
eye-lashes capping his large rolling 
eyes, and his leonine rage were terrific. 
His large head was covered with bushy 
hair, not always the most tidily ar- 
ranged His stentorian voice and blunt 
style of speaking gave him the air of a 
dictatorial, domineering character. In 
his old age he continued to work like a 
Titan. At 76 years of age he kept on 
revising his works and writing new ones; 
and on his death-bed, when he could no 
longer speak aloud, he dictated in faint 
whispers to his amanuensis. The death 
of his wife, four years before his 
so affected him that thereafter he waa 
never known to go to any place of 
amusement or festivity. In life's even- 
ing-he spent years in writing the great 
work of his life, " Thirty Tears in the 
United States Senate." When it was j 
nearly ready for the press, an accidental 
fire destroyed his manuscript. His great 
force of will led him to rewrite it. In 
feeble age he toiled on, and shortly be- 
fore his death he finished the great and 
crowning work of his toilsome life. He 
was of robust health, like Cass, doubt- 
less owing to his temperate habits. He 
used to say that, when a boy, he prom- 
ised his mother that he would never 
indulge in the use of strong drink or 
tobacco, and that he had literally kept 
his promise through life. 


The huge carcass of the elephant, or 
rather what remained of it, lay on one 
side, as it had fallen, with the legs ex- 
tended. Behind the ribs and just over 
the belly the Kaffirs had peeled off a 
large slab of skin about three feet 
square, and through the trap-door thus 
formed dragged oat the stomach and 
intestines ; they had also out the heart, 
liver and lungs, so that what was left 
was merely a hollow shell, in the lower 
part of which the blood had formed a 
pool* foot deep. Into this cavity they 
and the bushmen now kept entering by 
twos, disappearing entirely from sight, 
searching eagerly for small pieces of fat 
along the backbone and about the kid- 
neys, and bathing in, and smearing 
themselves with, the blood. This is a 
common practice among all the natives 
of the interior of Africa whenever large 
game, such as elephants or rhinoceroses,

The tallest peak on Buffalo mountain, 
in East Tennessee, known as White 
Book peak, on account of its peculiar 
formation— being a ledge of white rock, 
which towered several hundred feet — 
fell the other day with a terrible crash, 
which was heard for miles, and the 
whole surrounding country was almost 
overwhelmed with terror. It appears 
as if the whole end of the mountain had

To the Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle: 

A late United States Consul at one of 
the English inland ports, who is now a 
private resident of New York, relates the 
following interesting story. He objects, 
for rmraU reaaons. to having his name 
published, but authorizes the writer to 
substantiate his statemsnt, and, if neces- 
sary, to refer to him, in his private

few days out of port, a } - oung man hob-

by crutches and seetiitng to »«v» with 
extreme difficulty and no little pain. He 
was well dressed and of exceedingly hand- 
some countenance, but his tlirabs were 
somewhat emaciated and his face very sal- 
low and bore the traces of long suffering. 
As he seemed to have no attendant or com- 
panion, he at once attracted my sympathies, 
and I went up to him as he leaned against 
the taffrail looking ou| on tnc foaming 
track which the steamer was

strong enough to trust yourself unattended 
on an ocean voyage-but if yon requfre any 
assistance I am a robust and healthy man 
and shall be glad to help 

beyond my crutches, which enable 
iss from my state-room up here to get the 
mefit of the sunshine and the sea breeze.' 
" ' You have been a great sufferer, no 
doubt,' I said, 'and I judge that you have 
been afflicted with that most troublesome 
disease — rheumatism, whose prevalence 
and intensity seem to be on an alarming 
increase both in England and America.' 
'"You are right,' ha answered; 'I have 
its vfcrtim for more than a year, and 
after failing to find relief from medical 
skill have lately tried the Springs of Carls- 
bad and Vichy. But they have done me

to Missouri to die, I suppose. I shall be 
content if life'is spared to nit to reach my 
mother's presence. She is a widow and.I 
am her only child.' 

" There wasa pathos in this speech which 
affected me profoundly and awakened in 
me a deeper sympathy than I had felt be- 
fore. I had no words to answer him, and 
stood silently beside him watching the 
snowy wake of the ship. While thus stand- 
ing my thoughts reverted to a child— a ten 
year old boy— of a neighbor of mine residing 
near my consulate residence, who had been 
cured of a stubborn case of rheumatism 
by the use of St. Jacobs Oil, and I remem- 
bered that the steward oi the ship had, told 
me the day before that he- had cured him- 
self of a very severe attack ol the gout in 
New York, just before his last voyage, by 
the use of the same remedy I at once 
left my young friend and Went below to 
find the steward. I not oalv found him 
off duty, but discovered that he had a bot- 
tle of the Oil iu his locker, which he h»d 
carried across the ocean in case of another 

attack. He readily parted with it on my 
representation, and hurrying up again. I 
soon persuaded the young man to allow me 

snugly in bed and requested him not 
up until I should see him

found him sleeping peacefully am ___ 
ing gently I roused him and inquired 
how he felt. 'Like a new man,' he an-

out difficulty. I think I'll get up.' 'No, don't

quietly entered and took a seat at the 
head of the table close to the host; 
some of tb.6se present taking - him for a 
tenant, others for a clerk. During din. 

the stranger drank plenty of wine, 
handed a letter to Mr. Gladstone, and 
cheered him to the echo. When the

into the street, this individual tugged 
at his coat-tail to impede his prcgress, 
and was arrested. The letter began, 
My Dear Satan," and was to the ef- 
fect that the writer, having just come 
up from hell, offered Mr. Gladstone 
his services. "If," he added, "you 
require brimstone, I can give it you

Harry." The man refused to give his

8:45 o'clock they involve no gr&tt hard-

were asked by circular whether they

make a long story short, I attended hln. 
closely during the rest of tire voyage r -somie 
four days- applying the Oil every night, 
and guarding him against too much expos- 

out assistance, to mount the hotel omnibus 
~o to the Astor House. I called on him 
lys later, and found him actually en- 
gaged in packing hii trunk, preparatory to 
starting West for his home, that evening. 
With a bright and: grateful smile, he wel- 
comed me, and pointingtoalittle box care-

stood upon the table, he said: "My good

According to 
— by the Rail. 
News, before 1830, when the ex- 
port duty on c»ai wa»; finally repealed, 
the amount ,of British coal exported 
never reached 1,000,000 tans ; ( but since 
then, and, above ail, since tho spread of 
railways and the modern development 
of steam shipping, the trade has ex- 
panded at an enormous rate. The aver- 
age export was only 9,999,462 tons in 
the five years 1841 -'45 ; it had risen to 
20,329,068 tons in 18fa-'55, and in the 
period 1876-'80 it wa* 82,880,027 tons. 
Low prices and greater commercial ac 
tivity abroad appear to insure a contin- 
uance of something like this rate of in- 
crease, in spite of the rapid way in which 
foreign nations are making inroads uprm 
their own stores. What then is to be 
the end of it all ? Every year we draw 
nearer a day when home supplies will 
become, if not scarce, at least more diffi- 
cult to extract from the mines, and it is 
quite time that we should be taking 
serious thought of economizing. There 
is no necessity to check exports by taxa- 
tion or any other means. What we re- 
quire is more rapid progress in the art 
of making a little fuel do a great deal of 
work, and the best spur to induce move- 
ment in that direction would probably 
be a renewed period of dear cool caused by 
the excess of foreign and domestic con-

benefit, the widow of the late Abraham 
Lincoln expressed herself as very gi

«*se in Congress, and said that now she 
should have an operation performed on 
her eyes in a short time. Hitherto sho 
has not felt able to incur the expense at- 
tending this. In response to the ac- 
count of her condition recently pnb- 
hnhed, Mrs. Lincoln has received a 
check for 8260 from a New York mer- 
chant, who does not wish his name to be

the check was a letter, in which the giver

A bill is now before Congress which

the Indian desires some rational amuse- 
ment he will not be obliged to travel 
four or five miles in order to find some 
to scalp. We have taken from the 
nan his beautiful laud, and the least 
we can do is to give him an immigrant 
to toy with now and then.

Judge Beckxer has been inter- 
" Wter-Journal co'rre'S 

pondent at Frankfort, and hasseon 
cause to vent his spleen against 
speaker Owens, by the gratuitoos 
charge that the speaker had de- 
signedly composed the congression- 
al apportionment with the purpose 
of giving the Republicans a dis- 
trict. With his characteristic 
boldness and candor, Owens an- 
swers "that it is a lie of whole cloth, 
and Beckner knew it at the time. 
Of course, there was no such pur- 
pose, or the committee would not 
have had thirteen Democrats and 
two Republicans. 

The truth is, the anxious atten- 
dance of Beckner at the capital 
while Rice was mapping out his 
congressional districts: the fact 
that Rice had assigned Clark coun 
ty to the ninth district, Beckner' 
advocacy of Tom Henry at the Ap- 
pellate convention, when he was 
instructed for Davis : his voting 
for Rice as permanent chairman 
of the convention, when the sev- 
enth district delegates selected him 
as a committee-man on organiza- 
tion with the expectation that he 
would vote for Owens, his own dis- 
trict man, and his reappearance at 
Frankfort as soon as the Legisla- 
ture determine to raise a new com- 
mittee, all go to indicate that the 
Judge is a candidate for Conj 
in the ninth district if his county 
goes there, and that he is bidding 
fair with Eastern Kentucky. W 
wish Clark to remain in the Ash- 
land district, but if she is n 
sary to redeem the ninth district, 
the committee should add 
Madison also, and give Ex-Go\ 
McCreary a chance to measur 
lances with '-Beckner. The foi 
mer can carry the the ninth dis 
trict, while the latter cannot. 

Jacobites, down 

jamboree last week. The dancers 
to the music of that fine old tune 
kicked high and reveled in much 
ethereal sky-scraping of hoofs, but 
when they changed to "Yankee 
Doodle"" for a kind of desert, the en- 
tire motley crew put on 
wings and flew aloft for a few 
ments to look down on diminutive 
remnant of the Democratic party 
which was numbered among the 
things that were, for the time be- 
ing. The few misguided members 
of the frail delusion, will feel very 
badly over this when they get so- 

Ellis, the Ashland obnfessionist 
and double-distilled crank, ought 
to he taken out and hanged, 
the general principle that no 
authenticated liar has a right to 
swear another's life away. Neal 
and Craft may. be guilty, but the 
public will never be satisfied with 
their conviction upon such evi- 
dence as that upon which they 
were convicted. During the excit- 
ing times when Ellis made his 
first confession, and the outraged 
public demanded somebody's blood, 
any banker or preacher could have 
been hung on Ellis' word just as 
well as Neal and Craft. We are 
firmly of the opinion that Ellis 
alone it guilty of the entire crime.

The Kentucky Legislature is'try- 
ing to legislate Eastern capital 

out of the State, by the passage -of 
a maximum tariff bill for all rail- 
roads in the State. Strong corpo- 
rations can stand this class of leg- 
islation, but weak oues can't; con- 
se iuently, this will drive weak 
companies to the wall, and will 
check th'e progress of all In course 
of -.■..n-struction. The best class .of 
k'gisLiflon for railroads would, be to 
encourage strong competition and 
in vite Eastern capitalists to mak 
their investments wherever' t#| 
choose to in the State; Bheul 
this tariff bill pass, we understand 
that Huntington will change due 
Ohio river line to the Ohio side. 
Massachusetts is the strongest 
•ail road state in the Union to-day, 

hardly probable that will ever be 
fanned again worth a cent. 

There are two good planks in 
the Jacob platform — the opposition 
of that relic of barbarism— the 
whipping post, anil the enconra ■- 
:u*su,l of immigration-. The Drin- 
oc^atic' party, iurtypver, might be 
encouraged, through paopec jour- 
nalism, to adopt those two planks 
and sail along to glory on the : 
•straight ticket.

hundred Democrats and Republi- 
cans who endorsed a document of 
honesty, probity, &c, for Capt. M. 
C. Hutching, who obtained theii 
signatures presumably to get a for-

that Mr. Hutchins was trying to 
capture the Maysville post-office by 
a still hunt. Many of his endors-

drawing their signatures, and are 
indignant at the double-faced g
