The Total Loss of Life Will Beach 75. An Attempt to be Made to Extend the Bonded Period. Further Details of Collision. the Fatal July 5.--The scene at the wreck of the Scioto to-day almost beggars description. The anguish of those looking for their lost ones, added to the wails and sobs of those bending over the inanimate forms of their dead, recovered from the water. The Associated Press reporter arrived at the scene at noon, at which time only nine bodies had been recovered. Both banks of the river were lined with people, making a crowd of perhaps 2,000. The work of dragging in the vicinity for bodies is still going on. "William Hulholland, of Wellsville, under whose" auspices the excursion on the ill-fated Scioto was given, said the boat took about two hundred passengers aboard at East Liverpool, and two hundred and fifty at Wells"ville. ~ The boat was very much crowded, and refused to stop at other points where tickets had been sold. Taking his statement with others, it is safe to say that there were 500 souls on Iboard at the time of the collision. jCaptain Smith, of Martin's Ferry, who was on the Lomas, says that when some distance from the Scioto he noticed the boats were going to come together, and made his preparations for the shock. Both steamers had on a full head of steam, the Lomas going down stream at the rate of 15 miles per hour, and the ascending Scioto at the rate of 12 miles. It seems to be the prevailing opinion that the collision resulted from a mis-, understanding or confusion of signals. . .· · «. PUGLLISTS. Standing a Thumping for Pay. NEwYoEK, July 5.--Sullivan, the champion pugilist, gave a picnic, the spec* ial attraction of which was the announcement of a sparring match between Sullivan and James Elliott, the latter to receive $500 if he knocked the former "out" in four three-minute rounds, with a half minute rest. In the first round Sullivan raised several lumps on Elliott's face. In the second he knocked him down, and in the third, hitting him square in the mouth, knocked him sense- lew, in which condition he remained twenty minutes, and was then taken home. Sullivan gave Elliot |50. It will be remembered that Elliott has been sending a number of challenges to Sullivan the past few weeks. Arkansas Crops Splendid. LITTLE ROCK. July 5.--The Gazette's weekly summary; of crop- repora from exchangee and correspondents in all parts of the State, is of th« mow encouraging character. WASHINGTON, July 6.--It has been generally supposed that no attempt would be made to revive the bonded whisky bill this session, although a motion was entered on the journal of the Senate for a reconsideration of the vote by which the vote was postponed indefinitely. The whisky manufacturers have not, however, given up hope. A day or two ago several gentlemen, representing Baltimore and Philadelphia distillers, called on Secretary Folger and informed him that there was a whisky panic in those cities, and they could neither sell their goods nor obtain loans from the banks. They asked the Secretary whether he could not do something to relieve them by advising the extension of the bonded period to five years, which was the time fixed by Senator Bayard's amendments to the bill that was buried in the^Senate. The Secretary gave them encouragement, and promised to confer with Senator Windom as to the prospect for] legislation on the subject by the Senate. The Secretary said that so far aa he was concerned he was inclined to favor the five-year period with proper guards for the interest of the Government. The whisky men say they have strong hopes that the motion to reconsider the action of the Senate will be agreed to, and that the bill willjbe amended and passed, but the impression made by conversations with Senators is that there is very unfavorable sentiment in the Senate toward the revival of the question, unless it be strongly and unequivocally advised by Secretary Folger. TWO PER CENT. BONDS. MINGO JUNCTION, O., July 6.--There were found this morning the bodies of Charles Swearington, of Kensington, Ohio; Dan Thomas, the Captain's son; E. P. Smith, of Wellsville; also a man by the name of Dunhamer or Durhamer, from Wellsville. About forty men came down with skiffs and a cannon, from East Liverpool, and are doing good work. By night they can secure about ten bodies more. A great many bodies are placed in the engine room and under the bow of the boat. A want of necessary apparatus prevents the getting of the bodies, although boats and grapling tools, diving bells, c., are on their way from Pittsburg, and when the wreck is raised, at least thirty to fifty bodies will be found. The missing are accumulating and, with what have been found dead,, the number will amount to sixty-five or seventy-five, and nearly all will be found in and around the wreck. Every hour brings people here hunting for absent ones, and give names not given before. The dead, so far, have been recognized and moved promptly to their late homes. Stewart Pipes, reported found yesterday, has not been found yet. Why the Bill Was Passed--The Bonds to be Taken Tby a Syndicate. WASHINGTON July 6.--The joint resolution suddenly brought in from the Ways and Means Committee on Saturday and passed at once by the House authorizing a two per cent, loan, was suggested in the committee by the agent of some New York bankers, who sent him here to say that if Congress would authorize such a loan they stood ready to give assurances that the whole $200,000,000 should be taken at once. The committee directed Mr. Kelley, their chairman, to consult with the Secretary of the Treasury on- the subject. Secretary Folger approved of the plan, and the joint resolution, as it passed the House Saturday, had his consent and was in fact substantially framed in the Treasury. There are now four hundred and sixty millions of three and a half per cents, liable to call and payment at any time. Of these the banks hold over two hundred and forty-one millions, and a large amount is also held in private investments. It is supposed that the baners will be willing to exchange three and a half per cents., which are liable to immediate call, for two per cents., which by the terms of the joint resolution, cannot be called and paid until all the outstanding three and a half per cents., are paid off, and it is understood that the order in which the resolution prescribes their recall aftords another advantage to those who may hold the earlier numbeia. ANOTHER DISPATCH. STETOENVILLE, July 6.--Four bodies have been recovered from the wrecked "Scioto" to-day--Lincoln Beardmore, Thomas Beardmore, Thomas Leath and Charles Swearingen. Friends of lost ones are cutting through the state room floors and are despoiling the boat genreally to discover their bodies if possible. The steamer " Welcome" is still there. The boat will probably not be raised until to-morrow. The number lost is now estimated at 75. A Smallpox Scare. CHICAGO, July 6.--A Rustic Ford, Wis., special says: Smallpox is raging in this town.

Best Hunting and Capturing a Gang r of Train Robbers. ST. Louis, Mo., July 6.--A special from Poplar Bluff, Mo., says: Part of the gang of train robbers captured there yesterday. A man named Brown came to town and told the Sheriff he was one of the gang of five who had entered into conspiracy to rob the train at Hendrickson Station, on the Iron Mountain Road. A special train was sent to Hendrickson Tuesday night with officers, but the gang failed to appear. They were heard from yesterday morning at Sheffield's Mill, about six miles north, and the Sheriff was dispatched there on a special train. He returned at 11 o'clock, having captured two of robbers. The other two escaped. The robbers were armed with revolvers. Several of the posse are in search of the balance of the gang. Those captured refuse to give their names or disclose their identity. ^ · »·· A Brace of Suicides.

LONDON, July 6.--The Arch Bishops and Bishops of Ireland have prepared a circular to the priests, directing them to discountenance the Ladies Land League and forbidding females from attending public meetings without the consent o: the parish priest. Human Mince Meat. IKONTON, O., July 4.--Mrs. Mary B. Thomer, wife of Cbas. Thomer, was run over by a Scioto Valley freight train and literally torn to pieces. The scene was most horrible, the remains being literally torn to pieces and scattered over some fifty yards of track. One leg was cut off, the body was severed twice, then caught by the cowcatcher and carried some forty feet. The train. box car and two g'ondolas with the ocomotive in the rear, came around he lower reverse curve, between two rolling mills, going down, when she itepped on the track ahead of them going in the same direction. The engi- icer and the conductor testified before the Coroner that the bell was ringing and every possible precaution taken to revent accidents. This is a point )lank contradiction of other witnesses. ·· o m Guiteau's Body Removed to the Army Medical Museum. WASHINGTON, July 5.--The Evening Star says: On Monday night a wagon drove from the jail into one of *lhe alleys through which the rear part of ,he Army Medical Museum was reached. Chis wagon, without doubt, contained ;he body of Guiteau. At the Army Medical Museum to-day none of the jhysicians or other officials would say inything about the whereabouts of 3uiteau's body or what would be done with it. Dr. Lamb said very decidedly; "I don't know anything." Before it was decided to bury the jody in the jail, Warden Crocker had an understanding with Dr. Hicks that it should be removed to the Army Medical Museum. The Warden, -when akecl about this latest ''removal," seemed ,,,,. _ rather displeased at any thing being said i ted alone concerning it. He said simply: "If t h e ' body is not at the Medical Museum, u will be there in a day or two." It was his intention not to" make the fact of the exhumation public for some weeks, at least. and Son's new mill was partly destroyed. At Girard and Belknap much damage was done. Farms and towns in Crawford county were visited at a much later hour and grain was leveled. Peter Crawford and James Aaron Smith are reported dead and their families injured by being blown away. Colorado Storm. CHICAGO, July 6.--A Maniton Spring, Col. special says: Saturday's hail storm and water spout were more disastrous than was at first supposed. Later reports say, though only one life was lost, bridges, trees, fences, buildings, and rocks were torn from the ground and hurled through the air. Houses standing on the banks of streams were carried away. There is not a house in Maniton but that is more or lew injured. The loss in cattle and horses alone amounts The Outrage on Miss Bond. SPRINGFIELD, ILL., July 5.--During the night there was a fright at Taylorville, caused by a dispatch from Blue Mound to the Sheriff, stating that there was danger of a raid on the jail from that quarter. The local military company was put under arms and remained at the jail all night, but no disturbance occurred. The two prisoners, Clements and Pettis, are yet in jail and Montgomery is at his home. Miss Bond is re- :overing. The authorities hope to be able to bring her into court by the first of next week. Much evidence has been gathered within the past twenty-four hours, tending to fasten the crime on the men now under arrest. mm* The Kansas Wheat all Harvested. WICHITA, KAS., July 5.--The great wheat crop of the lower Arkansas Valley is completely haryested and in the best possible condition. Tracts in this vicinity will average from thirty to forty bushels per acre. The yield of com for this market is estimated at five million bushels. North Carolina Democratic Convention.

Catholic Bishop of Grand Rapids to be Elected. CINCINNATI, July 5.--Bishop Elder, Industrial Brevities. During the ten months from July, 1881, to April 30, 1882, the interior mills of California sent 2.750,273 quarter sacks of flour to San Francisco, and tb* farmers of California sent 18,407,5J8 centals of wheat This is alargerqnan- tity of flour than was ever received San Francisco during any corresponding period, showing great activity on the part of the oonntrv tnill«s. all of which are believed to be doing well. These mills are scattered all over the interior, the more prominent ones being at Vallejo, Sacramento, and Stockton. Some of these mills fill large orders for export. Adding the flour thus received the wheat deliveries gives a total of 20,475,471 centals, or upwards of 1,000,000 short tons, the largest quantity received in any ten months in the history of Francisco. The shipments of wheat and flour for the ten months ending April 30, 1882. were equivalent tp 1,075,276 tons, against 613,500 tons for the same time in 1880-'81, and 566,400 tons for the same time in 1879-'80. Some extensive shipments of young shad and herring were recently made the fish commission from Washington. One million shad and two million herring were sent to Austin, Tex., where they were placed in the Colorado river; 300,000 shad to FarmviUe, Va., to stock the waters of the Appomattox; 300,000 to South Carolina; 300,000 to the Rappahannock river, and 300,000 to the upper Potomac, at Harper's Ferry. The young fish were transported in closed tin pails, each holding from 2,000 to 2,500 fish. The Quantico fishery, which has just been discontinued, the shad having moved further up the river, net- over 3,000,000 shad and 60,000,000 herring. The Fish Hawk, the government vessel stationed at Quantico, under the command of Capt. Tanner, goes to the Susquehanna fishery, just below Havre de Grace. Up to the present time there have been shipped this year and deposited about 6,000,000 shad. The work of the entire season will probably embrace the distribution of nearly 80,000,000 shad arid countless millions" of herrings. The Buenos Ayres Herald in a recent number says a word on behalf of the Argentine republic as a field where surplus population and the unoccupied capital of Europe may readily find happy and prosperous habitation and profitable investment. There are lands, it says, of untold extent within two dred or three hundred miles of the capital, which require no preparatory work; they are akeady cleared and ready foj: grazing through the entire year; they require no barns for the storage of and these lands can be had at the "of Is. an English acre. Railway extensions are progressing, and "there is more danger to person and property than in any other young country." Then the "climate is matchless," and the people are "hospitable.generous, and impulsive in their welcome to all peaceable comers." The preliminary surveys for the proposed reclamation of the Zuyder Zee have been finished, and the work of building the walls will soon begin. A dike about 24} miles in length will constructed of sand and faced with clay, reaching 16 feet above the level of the sea, which will make it about 6J feet above the highest tide. The thickness of tbc dike will be such as to enable to resist the heaviest seas. Operations will begin at four different points, and the calculation is to have it completed in from seven to ten years, at a cost 846,000,000. The Spanish government, urged by the scarcity of wheat in southern Spain, has issued a memorandum setting forth the high prices of grain in the districts most affected, and stimulating Hungarian exporters to pay attention to this outlet for their products. It is stated that the railroad freight rate on California wool, from San Francisco to Boston, is 2f cents per pound; while the same railroads contract to coadjutor of Archbishop Purcell in the bring wools from Australia to Boston The Crisis in Egypt. ALEXANDRIA, July 6.--Ragheb Pacha President of the Council, received a tel egram from the Sultan that the British fleet would bombard the forts unless work on them are stopped. The Sul tan holds the Khedive and Ministry re sponsible for the consequences. Raghel Pacha replied that the Ministry has al ready telegraphed to Constantinople and that the demonstrations have been made in consequence of which the Sultan's permission to resume work was asked. Pending the Sultan's reply no definite resolution will be adopted. The work on the fortification still continues. Admiral Seymour delays formally demanding cessation of work until he hears from the Sultan's answer. Preparatione are made to take European residents on board the vessels. They are now hastily embarking. It is reported that Arab! Pacha la supplying arms to natives. LONDON, July 6.--A dispatch from Alexandria this afternoon states that Admiral Seymour sent an ultimatum to the authorities demanding instant stoppage of construction of diocese of Cincinnati, in accordance with a papal brief received a few daya ago, convened a meeting of the Suffra- gan bishops of the province of Cincinnati, to elect a bishop for the newly created See of Grand Rapids, Michigan. There are nine bishops in the province. The meeting takea place this week, and will be entirely private. Several bishops have arrived already. Pennsylvania Politics. Philadelphia Times.] Some things .in politics are like kissing --they are catching. Cameron and the bosses invented the reform-next-year policy, and bowled the reform element of the party out year after year by it; but now the Independents have learned how to catch on in Cameron's methods, and they are for harmony-next-year by walloping Cameron this year. Who Made Those Tracks. On one of the rocks brought to Franklin, Kv., to use in the foundation of the courthouse, were found Dimerous human tracks plainly defined and unmistakable. The stone is about three feet by six, and one bide showed as many as a dozen of these foot-prints. Some of them were misshapen, as having been made in soft clay and crowded by contiguous tracks, but many were in most perfect formation. None were barefooted tracks, but evidently made with fashionably-shaped shoes. On the stone were also" seen one bovine track that was clearly defined, and one that was somewhat out of semblance. In some of these tracks there bad been an after- formation of rocks, which with a chisel was easilv removed. The stone came from the Vernon quarry. The question that naturally arises is, who were the people that, wearing shoes with fashionably high heels and well-rounded earthworks' «hanks, made their tracks in via San Francisco, for 2 cents a pound. It is now stated that the stalks of cotton plant can be converted into valuable stock food, by cutting them inta small pieces or grinding them. Personalities and Hl-Eeports. Keep clear of personalities in general conversation. Talk of things, objects, thoughts. The smallest minds occupy themselves with person?. Personalities must sometimes be talked, because we have to learn and find out men's characteristics for legitimate objects; but it is to be with confidential persons. Poor Burns wrote and did many foolish things, but^be was wise when he wrote to a young friend: Arc, tell your story free, off-hand, When ·vri' a txsom crony; But still keep something- to yoursel* You'll scarcely tell to ory. Do not needlessly report ill of others. There are times when we are compelled to say, "I do not think Bouncer a and honest man." But when there it no need to express an opinion let poof Bouncer swagger away. Others wifl take his measure, no doubt, and sav« you the trouble of analyzing him and instructing them. And as far as possible dwell on the good side of hupjan beings. There are family boards where a constant process of depreciating, assigning motive, and cutting up character goes forward: they are not pleasant places. One who is not healthy does not wish. to dine at a dissecting table. There is evil enough in men, God knows. But is not the mission of every young and woman to detail and report it Keep the atmosphere AS pure as possi- i ble, and fragrant with gentleness and ! Charity.--Dr. John Hall. to many thousands of dollars while the ^ ^ Ions in buildings will exceed one bun-' un der threat of opening fire. The work ' «iay that afterward solidified dred thousand dollars. has ceased. ! In speaking of a defeated candidate, a wag said, "After all, he carried off thesoftblue the greatest prize."
