I; a g'auf''r''mI articles published in

n '.acitic while it is believed the mem
bers from Tennessee, Missouri and the
,ther more Southern States as far as the
*:ter are admitted. will favor the North
ern road for the sake of getting the help
of the friends of that project for the
. a.,.rn Pacific line. A combination of

An Approaching Catastrophe At
VicksLhmrg-Landlng Sliding into
A portion of the landing has been
sinking considerably, recently, we un
derstand. We are informed by Murphy.
the city street overseer, that since the
last rise a slide of four feet has taken
place, and that nearly four inches of it
occurred day before yesterday. The
slide ranges from above and immediate
ly in the rear of the Washington Hotel,
down the north side of China street to
Mulberry., across and up Mulberry to
Klein's building, near Crawford street,
and meandering north and east to the
river above the Morris House. On both
sides of Mulberry street, between China
and ('lay, a crack of several inches in
width appears, with the body of the
street sunken from the sides several
inches. A number of the fine brick
buildings and stores have been erected
lately down there, which have been
more of less affected by the slide. The
fine brick store of T. J. Fletcher, which
receives so much attentio in the ,,ying i
of the foundatinn as well as its general
construction, has cracked several inches
at the northeast end. HWhat is the cause
of this freak we are unable to say. It
has been sinking for a number of years,
but has never before manifested so much
perspicuousness. A portion of Memphis
seems to be similarly affected, from rep
resentations of the Memphis press, but
which is attributed to a channel which
is supposed to undermiine it. There is
no danger, however, of its being unbed
ded at an early day, if ever, as the ground
is over a hundred feet above the eleva
tion of the river.- Vickeburg Herald,
Another big Cave of the Et;.lIar.
Yesterday afternoon a large cave oc
curred in the Chollar-P'etosi mine, which
extended to the surface ad left a great
chasm extending the whole width of B
street. The cave is a short distance
south of the one which last sprhig swal
lowed up the large stone store of Wood
& (Goe. and approaches quite near to the
southwest corner of the well known
barley mill on C street. At the time we
visited the cave -about 44 o'clock last
evening-the chasm, or pit, was forty or
fifty feet in diameter, and about forty
feet deep in the deepest part. The earth
in and about the place was still settling
and falling in-sometimes several tons
at a time. The ground was much crack
ed all about the pit, and appeared to be
gradually settling, and, should it con
tinue to give way below,the chances are
that the pit upon the surface will be so
much enlarged as to take in several
buildings in the vicinity. On the west
side the wall of the pit shelves under
till it is already underneath a small
frame dwelling that stands on that side
of the street. While we were present
we witnessed a g-and stampede of a
party of men who were standing upon
the porch of thisdwelling, occasioned by
the noise of falling earth and rock under
their "situation"-though. in fact. there
were occasionally stampedes in all direc
tions among the groups whose curiosity
led them too near the edge of the crater,
for every few minutes tons of earth were
falling in on one side or another with a
dull, booming sound. The cave occurred
immediately over the spot where Patrick
Price (whose unrecovered body still lies
far down in the mine) lost his life. When
it was first discovered yesterday the hole,
which was near the center of the street,
was only about three feet in diameter,
and a teamster narrowly escaped driving
into it. At the latest accounts last night
the earth was still settling and the pit
gradually growing larger. The cave at.
tracted a great many visitors during the
afternoon, and as a general thing they
were about as respectful a crowd of
sight seekers as we ever saw; they didn't
crowd the elephant. Although you
couldn't see the bottom so well, the hole
looked much better when viewed from
behind the outermost cracks surround
ing it. We believe no damage of any
kind was done in the mine.-REnterprise'
IMPORTANCE OF ONE VOTL-A single
vote sent Oliver Cromwell to the Long
Parliament, King Charles I to the scaf
fold and revolutionised Great Britain.
Four votes in the city of New York made
Thomas Jefferson President of the Uni
ted States. One vote in Congress an
nexed Texas to the Union, made war
with Mexica and gave as California. By
the disobedience of a boy in 1806, a gar
den gate is Rhode Island was left open,
a pig got in and destroyed a few plants ;
a quarrel between the owners of the pig
and the garden grew ovt o it, wich
spreid among their friends-d- feaed the
federal candidate for the legislature and
Iave the State to a D emenatle Senator,
by whose vote the war of 1812 with (kent
Britain was declared. This shows the
value of one vote.-lfeap.ri.
