Wo sat upon tho sinuous wall,

That beats against tho Arsenal
In endless swills of liquid mud.
The maid I cherished by my side,
( Whero the Potomac's current laves

With hair as jellow as tho waves,
Had walked with mo along the shore,
And listened to my tale of love,
And wondered at tho wild galore
Of bapplncso I prated of.
Tho sun sank led at Arlington,
Whero sky and strident forest meet,
While waves from Martha Washington
In gladness kissed our pendaut feet.
And can it be," (I daro not tell
The tenderness of parting day,
Whose favoring shadows fondly fell,
O'er fading Alexandria).

Of Jove, of loyalty, pf you,
Shall be fulfilled upon this shgte ?

I dissolved somo of them iu water and

Turkish Patrol' for them to go out?"
"1 don't know 'Tho Turkish Patrol,' "
replied he. "Well, I'll get It for you."
Sure ctlough, on thu next Sunday he
turned pver his music to play the clt
inarch and found "ThoTurklshA'atrol"
thumping out from under his Augers
almost hcloro ho knew it. .lie couldn't
stop whero ho was, and it wasn't for
hiln to spoil a lark, anyhow. Ills at

THE DISASTROUS FLOOD.
The inressntit rains of tho pait few
days have raised tlio' rivers in the IJatl
cm States to such an extent that greater
floods have lesulted limn have been
known in many yciits. The Slgnnl
OITIcer lit Harper's Ferry telegraphed
this morning. "River is within two feet
of being ns high ns In 1877 and still
rising. Water In Shcnnndnnh stieet Is
8 to 10 feet deep. My oillce Is rocking
and am making preparations to aban
don it. Great damngo to railroad
pier. All kinds of henry drift run
lilng." The greatest dlsttcss and loss o( llfo
occurred at Johnstown, Pn. Johnstown's
geographical situation is one Hint
reudcrs it peculiarly llnhlo to terrible
loss of life in tho event of such n casu
ally ns thnt reported last night. It is a
town built iu n basin of tlio mountains
and girt nbolit by streams, all of Which
finally find their way Into Hie Alio
ghnny Hlvcr, and thence into tho Ohio.
On one side of the town Hows tho Cone
maugh Hlvcr, u Rttenm which during
tho tlry periods of the summer drought
can bo readily crossed In many places
by stepping from stono to Htono, but
which speedily becomes a raging moun
tain torrent when swollen uy the
spring freshets or heavy summer rrtins.
On the other side of tho town Is tho
Stony Creek, which gathers up its own
shniu of tho mountain rains anil whirls
them along toward Pittsburg.
The town is practically submerged
beneath a torrent of water, nnd hun
dreds of Itspcoplo howmany hundreds
no ninn knows aiadcad. Tho lowest
estimates place the loss of llfo al'iOO,
while somo reports Indicate that not
less than 1,000 souls pciUhcd In the
awfurcatarnct of water that poured Into
tlioplaco this aftcrnoou. It Is impos
sible to ascertain tho qxnct.facts of the
disaster. Telegraphic .communication
with the deluged town wns entirely' cut
oft nil night, it is not ovcu known how
near to Johnstown the trains will ho
ablo to run, as tho track is probably
submerged for many rnllcs.
Tholjrst news.qf tho, disaster was re
ceived in .Pittsburg lato yesterday after
noon, when a tclcgmph.oporntor on tho
Pennsylvania Hatliond slgnnl towor at
Sang Hollow, twelve miles below
Johnstown, reported that ho had seen
not less thnn Hcventy-flvo. dead bodies
floating down tho Concmaugh River
past bis station. Ho telegraphed that
as nearly ns could be ascertained tho
reservoir above Johnstown, swollen by
tho recent rains, had suddenly given
way at fi o'clock in the afternoon, pre
cipitating its thousands of gallons -of

reported 'that no trains .wcroJrunnlug
east of Jllalrsvlllc, which' Is twenty-flvo
miles west of Johnstown.
Tho awful flood caused by the sudden
outpouring of tho contents of n town
rctjervoir, together with tho Urrcnts .of
rain that had already swollen theso
streams to trlplo their usual vlolenca Is
supposcd'to ho the cause of tho sudden
submersion of Johnstown land tho
drowning of so many of Its citizens.

The latest Information comes
through Pennsylvania Railroad officials,
who aver that over 200 dead bodies

there are hut two houses in Johnstown
proper, entirely above tho 'water line.

Tho destruction by tho flood Iu the
Piedmont Viillw resulting from tho
storm Is terrible, nnd tho loss will
scatccly fall short of u quarter of ft.nill

that sum. The north batik of tlio Po

nearest approach being twentycven

Tho destruction Of prlvato prdperly is
very great. Ciops ard rulrtcd every

A special gent Jast tihjhtifromjlascrs
tovvn,jId.,saysj "Tho rain slQrm.whlch
began yesterday afternoon nilll con
tinues, and Is producing considerable
damngo In tills vicinity. Buildings linvo
been blown down nnd unroofed, trees
havo becu uprooted, 'fences scattered,
and acres qf wheat havo b.cvn totally
destroyed. Tho greatest destruction
was along.tha Potomac. In that Motion
tho storm was preceded by a cyclone,
which approached tho liver from 'the
neighborhood of Downsvlllc. It struck
nnd crossed tho Potomac nt Falling
Waters. Its appearance was that of a
cloud about thirty feet In width, nnd
during Jts passage ovcr tho river It,
lifted tlio water a considerable, hclaht.
Thu.noho of iLs. approach resembled tho
loarof n railroad train. Thooyolono
moved across tho country In n' north
westwardly direction, tearing up trees,
hurllns fences, through" tho nlf, and
hewing a path across fields and through
the woods. It struck the river again,
and rccro3sed into Maryland at Roth's,
warehouse, about three miles above
Williamsport. At thnt point tho vio
lence of tho 6torm .uprooted a trco.four
fed in diameter and carried .somo of ts
branches over a mlje. Tlio ,Potomac
River la ritlnc very ropldly.-.and tho
present Indications arc that the water
will bo Jilghor than during tho groat
Hood of 1877."
A Frederick, Mil., dispatch says:
"Thc rain has no.urcd lnccs.saut,ly sinco
lost night. Tho wheat scrop in this
county lias been damaged to mi extant
that cannot;now ho estimated, and. early
fruit has been destroyed. The water In
alh the small streams is rapidly rising
to-night, nnd great fear Is felt of a flood
in Carroll Creek. Tho I'otomao at
Point of Hocks and vicinity Is rapidly
overreaching its hanks, and. tho damago
thcro will ho great. JTho tracks on tlio
main stem of tho" Baltimore nnd Ohio,
between hero nnd Baltimore, nre washed
out and no trains nro moving,''
Ncw.s received nt Ellicott City, Md.,
is o the effect that tho .lowlands on tha
line of tlio Baltimore and Ohio Railroad
oboyo Sykcsville mo submerged, and
tho railroad tracks in places aro sovcral
feet under water, Tho Winchester
train, which passed thcro nt C o'clock
last evening, was unable to proceed
fuithcr west than within n few" miles
this bldo of Sykcsville, nnd had to re
turn with Its passengers to "Baltlmoro.
Tho railroad tracks at Galtlicr's, Mor,
Rail's, Woodhlno nnd WntersvUlo nro
covered with water. Tho rainfall at
Rockvillo has been unprecedented. The
country Is Hooded.
A terrible rain stoim lias swept ovcr
Southwest Ylrgluln, and Thursday
night at Pocahontas n water spout at
tho head of Laurel Creek submerged
the place and many peoplo had to ho
taken fiom their houses on horses. Sev
eral bridges ai a reported washed away
on tho Now Rlwr Division of tho Nor
folk and Western Railrood, aud travel
and tialllo aro suspended. A number of
trestles on thu Richmond and Allegheny
were carried away, aud seven miles
vt'vst of Buchanan an engine nnd live
cars plunged Into tho Jninas Hlvcr.
One car was carried down tho rivcrud

Mr. F. Marion Crawford is ono of tho
very few litcrnry men upon whom pub
lic praise seems to have Ilttlo or no ef
fect. Ho has refused probably a do,cn
times to have Ills portrait reproduced In
any of tho journals which mako a busi
ness to pander to tho curiosity of read
ers whoso gaze is so steadily directed
toward a successful novelist; ho docs
not bother himself for tho nutograph
hunter, or, lu fact, turn from tho oven
teuor of his way for his great public of
admirers In any way. A friend tells
me n curious story of his Indirfcrcnco to
the small matter of how and In what
manner Ids books shall ho published.
Not very long ago two periodicals wro
nnxlous to Secure nnew novel by draw
ford, nnd their offers wero laid heforo
thoauthoi, who promptly closed with
one of tho publishers. As the ar
rangement wns just nbout to be. com
pleted tho publisher said that,
as a matter of form, more
thnn anything else, ho should ho
allowed to read tho story bofore
It was Anally accepted nnd paid for.
This Crawford declined, snylng thnt
tho publisher would havo to leave that
to'hlm, nnd thntif ho insisted tho con
tract would not go through. As the
innn of business wns very anxious -to
get tho serial, ho consented to buy It
unread. In another Instance the. pub
lisher refused to this manner of Vgoing'
It blind," nnd the novelist thus .prob
ably litornlly threw away n lurgowm,
as the book nppcarcd first In book, form,
and had n smaller sale doubtless than.
It would havo met had it appeared flint
In tho nacres of a nonular mnirazlnc.

For somo tlmo past tho Pennsylvania
Railroad, In conforming to tho rules of the
Trunk Lino Fasscuger Association, has
charged a small sum for tho transportation
of bicycles. This .rule has, however, not
been generally observed, and tho Pennsyl
vania Kallroad Company has dccldod to
abolish tho chargo harctoforo exacted for
this service. Instructions havo Just been
Issued to all baggago .agcuts of
thtf system, embracing, bcpldo tho main

tho Alexandria and Fredericksburg, the
Northern Central, the West Jersey and
Cafudcn and Atlantic Railroads, to accept
and carry frco of chargo blcjclcs, tandem

by their owners. This regulation will take
