In 1851 ho became professor of physics and civil engineering In tho University of Michigan, and in the followinr year was transferred to the chair of geology zoology and botany, which behold until 1873, filling a similar professowhip in the University ot Kentucky from 1868 until 1869.

JANESVILLE, Wis., Feb. 20.—Robert Meredith, of Center, has returned from a trip around the world began a year ago. He started with $1$ and came back with $5. HAS COST IWLUQN8. The Damage by the Flood* In Pittsburgh And Vicinity Estimated at 82,000,000— Danger Oveh , Pa., Feb. 19.—The rivers reached their highest point at 10 o'clock Wednesday morning, when the gauge showed thirty-one feet ten inches. At 10 o'clock p. m. they had fallen twenty-nine feet. The rain has ceased at up-river points. A cold wave has set in, and both the Monongahela and Allegheny are falling rapidly up around the headwaters. As far as known there has been no loss of life. It is estimated that the experience since Monday will cost the two cities 551,600,000, to say nothing of the suffering and inconvenience, and many people claim that $2,000,000 will be nearer the correct figures. It is claimed that from 35,000 to 30,000 men will lose on an average three days from their labors because of the suspension of work in the mills. Figuring the average wages at $3. CO a day, a fair total would be $300,000. The loss of business to railroads, the damage to freight and the cost of repairs it is thought will reach $20,000. The big down-town merchants calculate that $300,000 will hardly make good the damage to goods and the cost of placing all the flooded business establishments back in the former condition. This includes the expense of taking property out and into basements again, pumping cellars out, and making necessary repairs of damages. It will probably require $200,000 to make good the mills and manufacturing 1 plants that have been submerged. In dozens of instances machinery has been badly damaged, stocks destroyed and buildings considerably wrecked. The loss to families can only be guessed at. It is conceded on all hands that fully 4,000 homes have been flooded, some of them badly. The cost of moving twice in hundreds of instances, loss and damage to household effects, repairs to buildings, many of which have been considerably wrecked, replacing of fences and outbuildings carried away, pumping out cellars, etc., will certainly reach §300,000. JOHNSTOWN, Pa., Feb. 19.—It is found that the foundations of many houses are undermined and loosened, thus entailing great loss. The bones of a flood victim were found at the point Wednesday, having been washed up by the waters. They were taken to the morgue and then interred in the "unknown" plot at the cemetery. Street-cars are running again, and it is expected the Cambria works will resume to-day. DIED WITH HER BABES. A Mother and Four Children Perlsli In a Burning Tenement In Brooklyn. NEW YOHK, Feb. 19.—A woman and four children were suffocated and a man was probably fatally burned in a fire that occurred at Delmonico place and Hopkinson avenue, Brooklyn. The building in which the fire ' occurred is a three-story frame structure. The basement and the ground floor were used as a bakery, and two families lived on the Uoors above. Jacob Enrich was at work in the basement over a pot of boiling fat at half-past 4 o'clock a. m. Wednesday, when the fat boiled over and running to the floor set fire to the surrounding wood-work. In a few minutes the building was on fire, and dense smoke was pouring through the halls. Enrich was badly burned, and the doctors say he can not recover. An alarm was sent out and the firemen responded and were quickly at work. They managed to subdue the flames after the bakery and second floor had been gutted. The firemen as soon as possible made a search of the building, and on the top floor found Mrs. John Henry and her four children dead. The woman and her children were asleep when the fire broke out and were overcome by the smoke before they could escape. The bodies of Mrs. Henry and two of the children were found in the hallway at the top of the stairs. The bodies of the other two children were lying just inside the door of one of the sleeping apartments. The members of the family on the second floor were aroused in time and managed to escape.
