""''"• A hail storm of unprecedented violence in that region ruined the gardens, stripped trees of^their foliage and broke holea in the roofs of liQuses at .Rolling Fork, Miss., Tuesday afternoon. The hail stones were as large as hens' eggs. If report be tr.ue, Secretary Bayard is going to ''keep on protesting all the Summer against the unlawful conduct of the Canadian fishermen." The country is tired of Mr. Bayard's protesting, and wants to see the loaded retaliation-act fired off. Every cent of the increased cost of the "long haul"'isiader the Interstate Commerce act, is saddled on tho farmers, who ^tiip cattle, •' grain and other products to market, and who buy the manufactured goods of the country that are shipped back to their homes. ' Mr. Eugene Semple's appointment as Governor of Washington Territory has set the "rock-ribbed Democracy" up there wild with joy. "He is," says /the AValla \Yalla' Statesman, "pile 6f the few but and true- blue Democrats appointed' to 'oflice under tlie present Administration." Reports as to Ex-Secretary Manning's-condition are full of contradictions.^The latest is that while his'minol is clear his body is quite paralyzed, and that it is doubtful if he gets home alive. Meantime the new bank in Wall street will open on May 1, with Ex-Treasurer Jordan at its head. Legislature. HOUSE. SPKINQKIEI.D, 111., April 22.—The joint Senate resolution providing for the appointment of a Commission on Claims, two from the Senate and three from the House, was concurred in, and Representatives Cooley, Wright, of Cook, and Miller, of Woodford, named as the members from the House. The Revenue Committee, through Judge Green, reported the code as revised by the committee. The code retains the county assessor feature,' but does away with the plan of divorcement of State .from local taxation. The feature of taxing'rail- roads has also been changed, Mr.' Murphy submitted a minority report in which the code as prepared by the Commission was. recommended.' The following bills wefe passed: providing for proper ventilation of mines, escapement shafts and code of signals; authorizing the police of any city or incorporated town to go into the territory embraced within the limits of adjoining cities and towns for the purpose of suppressing riot and protecting life' and property; requiring that objections other than those against the presiding judge to be made in order to grant changes of venue; authorizing Circuit Court Judges to appoint short-hand reporters in their respective courts for the purpose of taking evidence when so required, and appropriating $1,500 each to Peter McGhee and E. J. Howellsfor injuries sustained by the discharge of a defective cannon. The bill in relation to the title of real estate where rdcords ' have been lost or destroyed was passed. It provides that a person claiming ownership to such property derived from or through the person who was the owner or trustee thereof at tho time of such loss or destruction may file a declaration with the Recorder of Deeds setting forth his claims, and if such claims are allowed to stand for a term of three years they shall be considered a vested title. The bill is intended to cover loss of records destroyed by the groat Chicago lire. The bill prohibiting' insane persons, idiots and inmates "of prisons from marrying, was passed. SENATE. The committee on Revenue reported favorably Senator Crabtree's revenue bill. Senator Jlogan moved to have a conference committee of live appointed to confer witk a like committee of the House far the purpose of harmonizing the differences between tho Senate and House bills. Tho molioii caused considerable discussion, the friends of 'the bill blaimiug H should take its' regular order In tho Senate tho saine as other , — _—_._. . __—1_ Jills, and the object of appointing Aie committee was simply to delay its passage. The-motion was lost by a vole of 8 yeas to 2lJ nays.' The President of the Senate announced as tho appointees for the Committee on Claims, Senators Tor- rauce and Bell. Senator Bacon,of Edgar, introduced a b 11 making it a felony for parents, guardians'or, any person to abandon a child under 1 year of age. The bill introduced.' by Senator Evans making 'an appropriation, of 8215,000 for the'ordinary : and other expenses of the Insane Hospital lit Elgin, on second reading Was advanced to third. . Senator Gore's bill, on second, reading, appropriating .$24.600 to the State Board • of Agriculture for; the p'aytnent of premiums' at the, annual State Fair and Fat; Stock Show, and for the payment of the salaries of the Secretary, Chief Clerk and other employes necessary, was advanced to third .reading. The House, bill providing for the ownership and alienation of -real estate by aliens, and the age 6f Coil- sent bill were advanced ta : third reading.

PJIESCOTT, Kas., April 22TT-The cycilone that swept through jthisj region last night, and left death and desoration to mark its path, su;ept away the telegraph^ wire, cutting off communication ? with the outside world, so that your correspondent was unable to get a wire until it was too late to send the full details of the great calamity, or to give . anyr thing like a description of the situation of affairs. The loss of life and destruction of property seems to have been greater here than at other points touched by the tornado, 01 cyclone. As for the destruction ol property it can best be covered iu the statement that three-fourths oi buildings in the place were demolished or badly damaged. In the confusion that has prevailed all day it has been very difficult to obtain a correct list of the victims. A careful revision late to-night shows that fifteen persons wei'3 killed in town and many others in the vicinity. STRUCK BV LIGHTNING. ST. CHAKLES, Mo., -April 22.:— During a violent storm, which occurred last night, a large stab'le, the property of Henry Diekamp, situated six miles west of this city, was struck by lightning, and together with six head of of horses, all of his farming •machinery and several head of cattle, was entirely consumed. His loss is estimated at $1,000, with no insurance. AT NEVADA. NEVADA, Mo., April 22—A heavy storm, which originated in Kansas, swept over the northeast part of this county last night between 8 and 9 o'clock. It is positively known here that four persons were killed outright and several are so dangerously wounllecV thaVthey will probably die. The wind was preceded by a hail storm, which did considerable damage. Many of the hail stones weighed from' throe to five ounces; and some of them measured nine inches in circumference. They crushed through the roofs of dwellings and barns, leaving holes through which a man's arm would pass with ease. Consid erable injury to stock is reported from tho hail but so far as learned no persons \yero injured by it. Tho storm entered this county a short distance from Fort Scott, Kas., and traversed a distance of nearly thirty-five miles, leaving the county at a point two miles south Schell City. . TEUItllH.D HAIL STORM. CALIFOHNIA, Mo., April 22.—Hail fell hero last night to the depth of four inches on a level and of the size of hen's eggs. It was the: worst storm <:f the kind ever known in the vicinity. It was accompanied by incessant lightning and u smoke iu tho air and succeeded by a copious rainfall.
