The Tornado In Caldwell Pariah. iOntcbita Telegraph, 2d "VV are indebted to a friend itl Colurubia fvr the following interesc-lug irsdrlption of the tornado at Ray's Point on the Oaachita, a brief mention ot which we niadelaafc rv.k: Columbia, La., March 22, 1875. Between 4 and 5 o'clock,P, M., oa the lOtb ipst., there occurred in tuis vicinity a cyclone, which in terrific grandeur rand devastatinz horror 3ni patted anything of the kind ever known in luis country. j;or more than two hoars orevious to the out burst of this tornado) we had heavy tbuEder and sharp vivid flashes of lightning, and it became so dirk about 4 o'clock that lamps and can- : dleB were lighted in the dwellings and bueiDiBes hottses of the village for purposes of trading, writing, etc. A jarge ana ncnsuiojc piauisiiuu uu the east bank )$ the. Ouachita, four Point," anfi owned by J. Levy,acom-roisaionerchantof New Orleans, and L. 'FJlWdditt, Eeq.,the business man-ager ca tthe farm, was the chief scene of the dieaBter, in this terrible tem-pgt. , A large force of farm laborers resided on the premises, who, together with their respective families, numbered considerably over - one hundred souls. These families were domiciled in small tenement houses, scattered at . convenient , distances over the farm. Every house oa the plantation except the gin, and dwelling of Mr. Reddittv, was blown down, and scattered in the . wildest confnsion, over an area ttf hundreds of acres. The furniture, bedding, clothing. and everything in their, bouses were scattered broadcast over the earth. The fencing, outhouses, cribs, ' stables, etc., were all swept away as with a besom of destruction. Mr. James Adair, a worthy, industrious and intelligent mechanic, on the place, had one of his children, a bright and promising boy of five or six years, instantly killed, and' his. wife, an esteemed lady, so severely, injured that she died in great agony a few hours after. A little negro boy was instantly killed, and many, other both white and colored, saHousIv bruiBed and disabled.

VVithharacteristio benevolence the neighbors flocked in from the surrounding country, each eager to render what aid they coald to meliorate the condition of the saffer-ers. The young-men and physicians of the yiniage,as soon as notified, repaired promptly to the spot, and made a tender of their services, and early this -morning a handsome little purse was made up by the voluntary contributions of the citizens of the village, among the foremost of whom was the ladies for the benefit of Mr-Adair the chief sufferer.

Walter Phelps, whose indewndtnt and honeat course as a'nx-mber of tlte- first Congressional Sub-Cominitt-ie, endeared him to all respectable Lui?iariians, sailed yestef day in the City e Havana for Vera Cros' and. Mexicr. During his brief stay in the city he received tu atN ntioos of all our btet citizens, aud on Saturday evening members of the Cotton Exchange entertained hios at dinner at Morrau's. .. Among the ga-tlmf'n present were tb Prt-sident of the Cotton Exchange, the lion. Randall Gil son, Mr. Chains Lititte, Mr. Samn'el II. Kennedy, Col. V. C. Zach-aiif, Mr. Wm. F. Halsy, Mr. Schroe-der, (jen. Bofsey and uiany others. The'Hon. Wayne McVeiiih, of Pennsylvania, lately MiDiiter to Constau-tinople,Mr. Charles Nordholi.of Kev Yoik,!aDd Mr. Potter, United States Supei vising ;A.ichitect, were invited guetts. , At the close of the dinner, the chaiiman oftered a toast to Mr. Phelps, jn lehpouee to which the latter made avtriy happy address. Speaking of the many kindnesses shown him on his trip by the Southern people, of which this hauquet was but an instance, Mr. Phelps said : But let tne "say with Shakepare, Somewhat too much of this," for I feel like one overpaid, or rather like one who gains n prize by faUe pre-teneep. For what lmvt I done to merit snch distinction f Byron went to bed one night acd awoke the rxt day famous. But in the night a song ot .J.iia genius was burn to the world. And IT but told the truth. Sfut by the National Congreaa to reoort the condition of Louisiana with my aa eiates I reported the truth. Unhappy commonwealth ! where truth is . a loxury, Xow, really, did I deserve credit even for good intentions? A Republican, 1 naturally longed to fiud the Democracy responsible for political failme: a Noitueruer, 1 would ratht-r have found the secret of your woes in Southern folly. The testimony may be the more valuable for it is the testimory of an unwilling witness, but the merit of the wituess is leas. And for another reason, Mr. Foster and I hoped that we might tell a different srory j we wanted to cofi!ouu1 otirslandereiB. For no soouer bad tlto ttlegraph flashed the names of the committee than a portion of the Radical press began their murm'irn. The Speaker had made a poor selection. Potter was a Democrat; it wm said Phelps was a Democrat in dis g u ice, and Foster was no better tbn a Democrat. Alas ! gentlemen, alas! so inexorable was the kc of facts despite all our t-flurts, Footer and I will yet fee on our tomb stone "No better than Denio.rats." Mr. Phelps dwelt largely upon th services of Col. Zaoharie, t!ie Conservative counsel. He bad given time and energy and talent to th service of his State, and thi witho it iay or the hope ot reward. For personal advantage, for fame or niouey, few could have toiled with the slocp !fss energy with wliich Ztchirie 'aborfd for the public weal. JIj longbt the Returning Board until the doors were shut in hia face ; he pro-ff sted and went to the courts. The eimine was thrown over the blander of political sympathizers; he protested and went to Congress. Before its first committee, single-handed, he prepared, conducted and argued, and waited. Before another committee, ,e indefatigable youth continued his tight. nC jo'loweu It to Waihiagton, utid on floor and in lobby told hU wonderful story. He followed the committee to New York and was sentry at its closed door and left, only with the messenger who bore the sealed awaid to a waiting State. Gea-ilemen, when New Orleans is as she pball be. again the happy city and the wealthy mart, the stranger revisiting your busy levee shall ask: "Who worked the change T Where is the brass and monument that telU his Damet" And the answer, as of old. shall be, "Si monnmetnm nuoeris circumspice." Behold about you the monument of Zacbaiie. Mnch amusement was created by Mr. Phelps's narration of a little incident that happened on the floor of the ilouee of Representatives ia Washington on that memorable night of March 2, when the roll call settled the fate of ; Arkansas. A (renMeman ! passing out of the hall saw Brooks ; and a plug-ugly looking fellow talk- ing together; and as he oassed them 1 the plug-ngly saia to Brooks: Well, Governor, we're played out in Arkansas. We can't stay there. We'll have to go down to raonisiana." In conclusion, Mr. Phelps described an unexpected visit he made to Gen. Ogden, tire rtilef cf the White Leagwrs. w I approached with awe," said be, " but no sentry challenged my passage, no arms gleamed on the wolf. The great hero of the White League, whose solitary word was to give anarchy and massacre to the South, sat busied with the honost industry of peace. He was selling, and I know with courtesy and hou- esty, and I hope with, profit, sacking and barrels. But beyond the commercial suggestions of the scene rose instantly to my mind the patriot. Above the desk of Gen. Ogden were two portraits and two busts, the silent but eloquent companions o? his working hours. Whose were they f Lee and Jackson, of coarse. So let it be. They were mistaken men, but they were great men, and they thought themselves good men. As a man thinketb, so is he. Posterity wilt honor all the more for their misfortunes the unselfish devotion of Jackson and Lee to a lost cause. Bat the other two were Clay and Webster. Applause. Not of course. Then why T Because the White League had buried all that was ill, and - retained only that which was good of the past. The White League still loves the South and its own he roes, but it now loves and honors the Union, of which it is aeam an in Ma ential part, and those national heroes, whether of Kentucky or Massachu setts whose teachings ever were the preservation of that Union by which alone national existence is made sure. The HonJ Randall Gibson, Col. Zacbarie, Mr. Bohn, the Hon. Wayne McVeagb, and Gen. Bassey, made also felicitous speeches. Mr, McVeagb, after convulsing the dinner .company with some happy jokes, spoke some earnest words as a Republican, stating in plain language r t what tbe Republican policy was and ought to le in tegard to th Southern States. Gen. Bnnsey also spoke as a Republican. It will be Teruenibered that lie served in the Northern army duiing the war as Chief of Artillery of Gen. Graut'x staff. He took occasion to declare Jiimself as a Southern Ri pnblican satisfied with his fellow-citirens, .happy; in all - his political eiid mm ial relations in the South ; and lie declared also his unaltered opposition to a third terra.

They - became vety excited during the discussion,' ai.d such were the words which were used on both sides that they- felt honor bound to settle their disagreement according to the laws of the code. A challenge having been eent aiid accepted, the meeting was fixed for 10 o'clock yesterday morning, at Camp Parapet, on the green, and duelling pistols cho6en as the weapons. At the appointed hoar" both combatants met on the field, iet withstanding the exertions of the seconds to arrange matters amicably. The Plincipals refused peremptorily &ad both desired to see the color of his adveiBary's blood. - After the preliminaries customary on saeh occasions, the combatants were placed at twenty paces apart, the pistols loaded, and the gentlemen armed. " Are you ready T" Ready! Fire! One, two, and now distinct shots were hearl. Both combatants stood .firmly their ground, in presence of each other, Loldii'g their pistols up. No blood bad been shed. One of the principal a'ked for a second fire, but before granting this the seconds coo. salted, and walking up to their principals, stated that they were the only judges who were to decide whether the combat should continue or not. and that they were satisfied that all insult had been well washed by the hie which both had received, and therefore concluded that honor was srtisfied on both sides. The combatants each walked half of the distance which separated them, and alter the usual bow, shook hands and started back towards the city, where all hands partook of a magnificent bieakfast.

Buying American Goods Abroad. One sometimes meets with Ameri can goods unexpectedly abroad. A friend last year purchased at a bqod in Paris one of the little gold-plated and rubber telescope pencils, such as are made and sold in great numbers on this side of the Atlantic, for which be paid fifteen francs. A few days afterwards, when in London, he no ticed the same article in a snop window, and being so well pleased with his first purchase he entered the premises and bought a duplicate, orice ten shillings. " This is less than they asked me for the same thine in Paris." said oar buyer. "Yes" answered our dealer, always ready to make a point against his Parisian competitors; "we always sell lower in London than ia Paris. ' Our fiiend wason hisway home, aud when he got down to Liverpool espied the identical object of his fancy again in a Liver pool window. " Let us go in and ask the price of those pencils here," he said to his lady companion. They did bo, and were told, to his astonishment, that the price was 8 shillings, and was again tempted to purchase one as a present for a friend. " I thought these pencils were made in Paris," said our friend, " but find the farther I go the cheaper they are. I paid 13 francs in Paris, 10 shillings in London and now you sell me one for 8 shillings." " Well," said the dealer, when yoa get to America you'll find them cheaper still, for they were made over there." And so it proved, for they can be bought in Boston or New York for about $15 a dozen. Health of Key West. Oar latest mail advices from Key West are those of March 27. In respect to the health of that city, about which telegraphic re ports have recently caused consid erable uneasiness, the Key of the Gulf says: We are informed by the Healtn Officer that at this time the health of the city is, all things rAKen consideration, remarkably good. It is in fact what our physicians ana urajc- gists consider as distressingly healthy. Tbe cases of small-pox whicn came miu iuo uaiwui . a the' first o the month are about well. - . Our community were, however, somewhat startled a few days since by the occurrence of a sporadic case of yellow fever, with oar late esteemed young friend W. L. Allen, of the telegraph office. No other cases have occurred, and with the present cool weather and the precautions which have been taken, it is not likely that we shall have any more cases. The fleet, as a matter of precaution, have been temporarily quarantined from the town, but we sap-pose will in a few days be released from durance vile." HTiy Grant Signed the Cio'd JlighU Bill. Vice President Wilson said ia a recent interview with George Alfred Townsend, that Grant was opposed to the civil rights bill as long as it helped his third term scheme, but favored it when he found that his opposition was injuring his chances.
