The gorge and Ho6d at Lyons, Mich., left 1,000 acres of ice frbttiflve to twenty feet thick. The summer is provided for. It is reported that PornelPs mantle as leader of the Irish Nationalists is ,to fall on Justin McCarthy. ; Ground for the State Fair was set apart by the Supervisors of Decatur, 111., as a preliminary movement toward securing the prize. Archbishop Crpke's .non-payment of tax scheme is' not .generally indorsed by Irish member of 'parliament. ' ' East St. Louis manages .to develop a fresh brand of.chad's""at!:'every municipal election. The only way she will ever get her affairs straightened out willbe by sponging off ^Uie slate and start in anew. Six Democrats and three Republicans figure as bolters in New Jersey legislature and'priyent the election of a senator. The members being unable to do business, improve their time by mobbing each other. The Lake Borghe outlet project for drawing off the'surplus waters of the Mississippi riveb when at flood- tide, which . was brought forward with a flourish at the beginning of this session and supported for a time joy & publication etplaining its merits, has been'buHed in Committee. The Eastern liemof'.ratic and Mug- wump press are quarreling over the question," Who elected' Grover Cleveland President?," The •, New York Sun says: "There is no-dispute about his "nomination.: ,, That was the work of _'Daniel ; Manning; alone;' and no other man could have' done it." . Maggie Beadling', the 16-yeir-bld bed-ridden daughter of a miner,at : Banksville, Pa., announced last November that at 2p.m. Feb. 17, 18S7, she would be restored to health. At the appointed hour Thursday she arose from her bed, flung aside her crutches, and danced about the room^to the amazement of a i umber of people who had gathered to witness the miracle. The senior Senator from Illinois is a man of philanthropic disposition. His latest display of kindness to his fellow-man was a resolution offered by him, last week, asking the Secretary of War whether there was necessity for a number of clerks in two departments working extra hours. The solicitude displayed by Mr. Cullom for the frightfully over-worked government office clerks is most admirable. Everybody knows that they are compelled to slave from early dawn to sunset, and to add 10 their lours of toil is a hardship almost too great for endurance. In 1880 during a war on passenger rates, a combination of brokers jought up over $100,000 worth of ickets of the Lake ffiiie & AVf stern ssue with Chicago & Alton coupons attached, good from Sandusky, O ., o St. Louis via Bloomirr;ton, 111., When the Lake Erie & Western went nto bankruptcy their tickets were •epudiated and the action of the receiver in refusing to acknowledge .hem was sustained by the courts. Hie Alton coupons, however, were not affected by this, and they in large liiantities'have been cut off and jliiced in the hands of Chicago and it, Louis scalpers. Democratic Shortcomings. NEW YORK, Febl 18—Senator II. M. Teller, of Colorado,.was at the '•fifth Avenue Hotel to-day., He said in an Interview. "The Senate has appropriated, nearly $60,000,000 for Bteil cruisers and coast defenses,and ithe people will 1 watch with^ interest what a. Democratic; House wiill !dp when it passes'b appropriations. If it rejects them, the Democratic party will have to suffer. The wrangle between the two factions of the Democratic party in the House are not calculated to. procure legislation. It looks as if the Democrats were very much divided and not at all in love with the President. In my State the Democrats prefer some other candidate. Governor Hill, of New York, suits them.better. The administration has been siich a failure, I do not..think' the Republicans will have any trouble in winning at the next election. Look what a miserable failure the foreign policy has been. The appointments and the whole conduct of foreign' affairs has been disgraceful.. Why could not Mr. Cleveland' have, appointed Thurman, a man of brains, to. .represent this country us .Minister to England; The man selected had no expeiience"In• public! affairs and was not knowh.'exce'pLas a very capable country lawyer.! Then look at .our bulldozing poor Mexicoabout a blatherskite^ Secretary Bayani committed an,egregious blunder by taking 8ucli/n decided, stand;.in the matter Before! he, Knew ' the .facts. The fishery question, ..too, has* been'hand- •led badly,and reflects no credit, upon Mr. Bayard. If the House refuses to pass the Senate retaliation bill—, lopks! very much', as if it will— another^seripus mistake will be cbarR- ed ;againsc;;''ihe, .Democ^ats^ ' .It is' .evident that President 'eieveland has no special weightv'and. : will do nothing toshapeja poHpy^ithat!;, will win the applause and admii'aiion 1 either of his party.or' the'people.'large. If. he is nominated in 1888 : lie will not be elected." Lady Burned to Death.

Congress. WASHINGTON, Feb. 19—Senate— Hr. Beck presented his personal pe- ition for the repeal of the naviga- ion laws, and supported the petition >y the statement that Count Von loltke had in a recent speech de- lared thut war was inevitable; in liat sort of a contingency Mr. Heck vanied Americans to own ships and ave a chance at the ommerce carry- ng of the world. The conference eport on the bill for the reooinuge nd retiring of the trade dollar was greed to, and the bill goes to the 'resident. The river and harbor ill debated till adjournment. Mouse—The pension committee -'ported back the dependent pension ill with the unanimous rocommcnda- on that it do pass, notwithstanding ie I'rc.-idi nt's obj ctlons. The bill as made the special order for next hursday. The questions of admit- ing several torritprina to statehood, and the appropriation to fence in graves of con federate dead, led to a bitter partisan d, bate, and on the lust named issue there was it vigorous waving of the bloody .shirt by Keptiblicua loaders.
