Conductor Weise had as- a passenger on the Chicago passenger train yesterday afternoon an old gray-haired man, who at the near approach to the Wabash river began to exhibit visible excitement, and questioned the con ductor as to the distance from the river. On being told that the- stream was near at hand the old fellow glued his face to the window and waited expectantly for the river to fall athwart his gaze. As the. train crossed the bridge and the turbulent; tide of the, Wabash was disclosed, stretching far beneath him the eager spectator seemed happy. Tho old man explained to Conductor Weise that in 1848 he with a large party of Wayne county men crossed the Wabash en route to California. They went overland and he and two others were all of the large party to reach the El i)oralo, the . others having fallen by the wayside either by" disease, exposure to privations or the onslaught Of Indians. - Tbe old pioneer was '.on his way back to his boyhood home near Richmond for the first time in all these years and his near approach to the old home filled him with a g"eat joy- ! RAILROAD RUMBLINGS. Hems from. Tlie Note-Book .o(' Our Knllwuy 'Reporter—Point* Pcr- and'-'Otherwise. The Vandalia people.are not pleased that the Big Four is carrying 1 passengers betwi^pn Lafayette and Terre Haute, via. Indianapolis, while there is a traffic agreement by which, the Big Four is to send this business over the Terre Haute & Logansport road, the two connecting at Colfax. This action will doubtless bri ng the Vandalia to make a contract with the Louisville, New Albany & Chicago road, which makes connections at Frankfort, ten miles east of Colfax. The reports from the Grievance Committees are meager and the results of-the conferences at Pittsburg are not made known. The several committees are being received and the points in dispute discussed. The P. R. R. voted to join the southwestern and northwestern systems in their grievances. It is probable that mutual concessions will prevent a trike. Such, a result is certainly desirable for all interested since a fight between the whole Pennsylvania system and its employes resulting in a strike would be a National calamity and disastrous to both sides. The chief officers of the Federation are all at Pittsburg and it is understood that General Manager Woods will discuss the scale with them. STILL RISING.

Wayne Sentinel:.Louis Schroder eturned home this afternoon, after having made the circuit of a number of towns, with the object of learning what are the prospects for their entering the state base ball league. He was at Richmond, Kokomo, Muncie, Anderson, Marion and Lafayette. He says .the campaign is on in all of the above pb-ces for the purpose of organizing clubs, but the outcome is yet uncertain. Richmond is doubtful, and one or two' other places are by no means sure, but South Bend is anxious to come in and so is Logansport, so that it looks favorable for the organization of the eight-club league. Several interested parties at Huntington are- desirious of making the' venture but this place will hardly be in it. IWoiiey for the ParK. Now that the city council has subscribed to the plan of the park as suggested by the Trades and Labor Assem- bly'the Assembly will begin again the task of .raising money for the development of,,their scheme. Subscription books-will be freely circulated among the people this week and the Assembly hopes to add very largely no the already handsome subscription reported. . This is a cause deserving the support of every lover' of the city and subscriptions should be numerouS'and liberal.

At all points np the Monong-ab ela river and Allegheny river, the water is again rising and these streams are still 'outside their banks. A repetition of the high water of Tuesday and Wednesday is foured. The work of cleaning the deposit of mud and debris left by the flood is being prosecuted vigorously in this section, and the down-town streets are beginning to assume their wonted appearance. CIXCIXXATI. Feb. ' at.—The river passed the oo-foot mark at 7 o'clock a. ui., ;md merchants and residents in the bottoms are preparing for the rise. At 12 o'clock noon it was 51 i'eet 1 inch, and rising at tTie rate of 2 ineb.es an hour. The water covers portions of Second and Pearl streets, and is filling the cellars of some of the business houses along those thoroughfares. Some of the inhabitants on both sides of the river above arid below Cincinnati are alarmed at the continued rise and are moving their stock and portable goods to higher ground. The witter has completely submerged the auxiliary pump at the water works and the supply to the elevators in the city will be cut off. River men say the indications are for considerable more water. The different railroad lines entering the city are taking the necessary precautions for a flood. I-'IXDI.,VY. 0., Feb. 21.—The greatest, flood Findlay has experienced since 1SS3 is now pouring down the Blanchard river, which divides the city into north and south sections, carrying with it property of all description and driving from their homes hundreds of people. All of the lower, part of the city is covered with water and the river is still rising, threatening 1 the destruction of a number of important buildings along its banks. >fo loss of life is reported, but the damage to property will reach many thousands of dollars. Grave fears ai"e entertained that the worst is yet to come. COLUMBUS, fnd., Feb. 21.—For thirty- six hours there has been a constant rain-fall in the southern half of this State, such as has nut been witnessed for years.

Several manufacturing establishments and many houses in the northeastern part of the city are flooded, and inxindation of the section of the city lying west of White river is threatened. The rise of the water has been so rapid that in the inundated district in the neighborhood of the Atlas engine .works ma.ny families have had to leave their houses through their windows. VANDALTA. Til., Feb. 21.—The drought in Southern Illinois is at last broken. ! Rain has fallen almost incessantly during the last twenty-four hours. PAKTS, 111., Feb." 21.— The drought in Edgar County has been broken by heavy rains during 1 tlie last twenty-four, hours. Some districts were greatly in need of water.

JEFFERSONVIT.LE, Ind., Feb. 21.—Otto Reimer. a convict in the prison south, where he was sent from Vigo County for stealing a watch, is said to be a brother-in-law.of Dr. Koch, the famous German physician, and also the brother- in-law of the editor of the North Star, a German paper published at La Crosse, Wis.

CLOTH TOP SHOES. CLOTH tops arc again being accorded a eorisideVable degi^e of popularity oth men's and women's goods. Cloth is superior to leathei in every wav in both men s ana women s goods. (Jloth is superior tp Jeathei in every way except durability, and ever, in that it holds its own in some cases, as agsinst, some of the leather used for tops. Cloth is the best material foi shoe tops i» ^ the case of persons whose feet have a tendency to perspire freely.as the surplus^3> heat of the foot as well as its moisture is allowed to radiate and transpire:;* thruugh the meshes of the textile fabric much more readily than though th&. leather. Good cloth is not materially affected by moisture, and excels leathe'r- ^ used for toppings in resisting its attacks. Cloth does nof crack, scale, turn rei ' t ' or grow stiff and Chafe the wearer. It is more comfortable aud smooth fitting.*^ than leather. It makes a handsome - effect by contrast, when used with leather-^ vamp. It is more "dressy," and, in fact, as we said 'at the outset, bettetf fou4 toppings than the leather generally used in everyway, pro\idin<r a first-clas* <i quality of cloth is employed. There are cloth fabrics sold for shoe tops that: ^ are not desi.able, just asthere_are^kinds of leather used for shoe «oles that arej<! not desirable; some being cheap and poor quality,'for use in cheap shoes, : and some being fine quality and intended more for appearance than wear. " There is a grade of cloth for every grade of shoe, and the best grades aie more 1 expensive than fine leather. The patterns vary from plain black to figured.

Feb. 21.—Word comes i from Las \>»-iis. N. M., of a frightful! accident upon the Santa Fe road, | •near ' that place, which, is in j many: respects a counterpart of the disastrous collision in the Fourth avenue tunnel, Xew-York City. Two trains came together in collision witli a frightful crash. Both engines were reduced to ;i shapeless pile of scrap-iron, the engineers and firemen, being in- i stantly killed. The trains were I going at a high rate of speed and' several cars were telescoped, causing serious and probably fatal injuries, to many passengers whose names can. not now be learned. The dead thus far identified are: Charles Gartner, engineer: Robert Stevens, engineer; Thomas Glans, fireman: Frank White, fireman; Reed, brakeman. There are others, both train-hands and passengers, who are seriously injured and under the heaping ruins of two demolished trains there may. be bodies not yet discovered. • A corps of physicians and a wrecking-train have been sent to- the scene of the disaster from Las Vegas, the nearest Station. The conductors of the doomed train ascribe the accident to a misapprehension of obscurely worded orders. Details are hard to get, as telegraphic facilities are bad. l>ropi»ed' Doail.
