with poison or assassination for h'u re
cent able rid re as in favor of the war, at
Ft. Patrick's Cathedral, and for his cfii
cicnt defence of tho Union and tho Gov
ernment from the commonr-emr nt of the
rebellion till the present time. Tho
threat has been accompanied by certain
circumstances which lead to the belief
that tho secessionists are in earnest, and
hence tbe vencrabte prelate has declared
it his duty to make distant allusion
thereto in his newspaper organ, the Me
tropolitan Kecord, of to-day. The Arch
bishop, it seems, lias discovered the au
thorship of at least one of the communi
cations or "warnings" referred to, 'which
was signed "Mount St. Mary." The
Itecord says: "Tho author has ' three
weeks to w ithdraw it in Ids own name,
and not as 'Mount St. Mary's.' , If h6
will not do so, he, will have the consola
tion of reading it in print."
Porous WATEK-rnooi' Cloth.- This
quality tho Scientific American Says,
ii given to cloth by' imply passing ii
through m hot solution ot weak glue and
alum. This is what is done by paper
makers to make writing paper, the Tery
thing- which constitutes the difference
between it and blotlirjpr paper, only on
cloth the nap, like tho fur of the leaver,
will preserve the cloth from being wet
through, as the rain will not adhere, but
trickle off us soon 'as it falls, and mois
ture will not adhere at all.
To apply it to the cloth, make tip ft
weak solution of glue, and whilo it is
hot add a piece of alum, about an ounce
to two quarts, and then brush it over the
surface of the cloih while it is hot, and
it is afterward dried. Cloth in pieces
may be run through this solution and
then wrung out tif it nd dried. Dy
adding' ft few pieces of soap to the glue,
the, cloth will leel much softer. Goods
in pieco may be run through a tubful
of weak glue, soap, and alum, and
squeezed between rollers. This would
bo a cheap and expeditious mode of pre
paring1 them. Woollen goods arc pre
pared by brushing1 them with the ftbovo
mixture, first on the inside, then with
the grain or nap of tho cloth, alter
which it is dried.
It is best to dry this first in the air,
and then in n stove-room at a low heat,
but allow the cloth to remain for a con
siderable time to expel all tho moisture
completely. This kind of cloth, while
suiliciently jvater-proof to i keep out
moisture and rain being quite impervi
ous to water is pervious 10 me air.
Many Lshernien know:that by boiling
their pants, jackets, nets, and sails iu a
pot with oak bark and tish skins, and af
terwards drjingthein,thcy become water
proof. The composition luentioned above
is nearly of the same nature as the llsh
glue and oak bark, and consequently the
same effects are produced.
The composition is stated to bo im
proved by adding about one-tourth tho
quantity of the sulphate of copper to the
alum. Cloth made of waterproof iu this
manner will resists tho til'eet of water
even if it is sometimes warm, but it looses
its waterproof qualities if boiled, i'er
sons who aro exposed to tho inclemency
of tho weather will lind it to their ad
vantage, as a means ef preserving health,
to prepare their clothes ia the way we
havo described. Several corps iu the
French army are provided witli porous
warerproof of cloth tuna s prepared in
similar manner. They have bi eafouud
very benelicial when the troops ate in
Tjik Ai.mt Si'Iioeons. It is openly
charged in Washington that army sur
geons are constantly bribed to allow men
to so on the cround of physical disabili
ty, and that the army is rapidly growing

New Ulm Ji.nl grown fioiu a small vil
large to a town of about 2,(KK) inhabi
tants. Its main street ran parallel w ith
the river for one and a half miles the
dwellings were evidently the homes i of
taste, comfort and happiness. Two large
strain mills for the manufacture of lum
ber and Hour, one wind planing mill, and
ono brewery, nn"orded at once market and
employment. Hut all has fallen, awful
ly fallen! The utter ruin expressed by
llomer when he said "Tnytt fuit", i al
most truo of this place New Ulm was.
This beautiful village i now but a small
rltnter of building, about one hundred
fins F'iuar. i.iosuy . iminuaOiiea wl.cn
weca.'ne, but by the pre since of an arm
ed soldiery & feeling of security leads
many to return who had been driven
hence, and many others who had fled
from their farms in tho region beyond, so
that the town is now quite filled to over
The village is protected with rude but
sullicient defenses and a liberal detail of
pickets from the three companies of sol
diers and two companies of militia tern
porarily Stationed here. All out
side has been burned to ashes. ,Tho
homes of a hundred families, with scarce
ly an effort to save an article, have fall
en before tho ruthless Indian, or tho stern
necessity of mutual defense. The esti-.
mated loss of property is about one and
one half millions of dollars. , ., I
The destruction seen here finds a sad
counterpart in tho c-Ouulry around and
beyond. Between this place and St.' Pe
ter's," tho country is mostly deserted, in
the panic, but not ravaged; but in the
Country west and north, alone, the Cot
tonwood IMver, the evil spirits of rapine
and murder have done their perfect work.
Scouts from fuy company have been in
every direction, from five to twenty-five
miles, ana all report the same ruin and
dovastation--bnt very few houses left
standing, and they are Sacked of every
thing worth the trouble to steal or effort
to ; destroy every bed ' and mattress,
every blanket, spread and sheet, every
article of wardrobe taken, every trunk
broken open and spoiled, every article of
provision carried oil-, every horsd driven
away, nearly every house burned with
every thing in it, and hundreds of families
murdered or driven into a captivity
worse than death. t -
Hardly a harvest finished, the grain
uncut, the reaper . standing where the
horses were taken off in fright, or by the
Indians; unbound the rake lying on the
gave unahocked, nnstacked, every har
vest field trodden under fool, and every
corn-field ravaged by herds- of cattle
which' will soon howl for food where no
hand is left to give. Add to a'l this tho
savage murders of individuals and whole
famines wno nave lonj; lived in peace
and quit and security, and w ho have thus
fallen a swift prey to the Indian rifle,
hatchet and scalping-knife antl the woe is
Instances of escape1 him I horror came to
notice almost daily. There is in this vil
lage one little boy, the only'survivor of a
tanuly of eleven members, one child with
four hatchet wounds in its head, through
two of which the brain ' can be seen to
pulsate ; one man only escaped, in a
company of eight, ambushed by the In
dians within the limits of the town ; one
lady whoso husband, brother, brother-in
law, and finsband's brother-in-law, fell
in the last named number, one man, shot
in the mouth with three rifle balls, yet
lives and will live, though horribly man
gled ; auoiher shot with seven balls;
Captain Dodd, of St. Peters, shot dead
from his horse, pierced with thirteen ri
lle balls. These nre some instances of
tho effects of tho attack on New Ulm.
Tho prisoners carried away captive by
tho Indians, were entirely women ami
childreh. Tho elder wortten were mur
dered, while the younger, outraged and
stripped of every article of clothing were
forced to march away with their captors.
Litllo children wero hewn to chips 'be
fore their mother's eyes, or nailed to the
house or fence by the hand and feet, and
left to linger out their littlo lives in ago
ny. I nborn infants were rudely torn
from their place, and fiung upon the bleed
ing breast of their dying mothers. Moth
er and children were scalped aud be
headed, and placed in ghastly rows on
the ground. In fact, every indignity and
outrage, and atrocity which a fitnd could
devise, and which have ever character
ized Indian warfare, have been practised
to the greatest extent tif uii a confiding
and peaceful people. Pen and words
utterly fail to depict these barbarities;
it ha often been attempted, but never
realized in description.
Indiana Cotton and Molasses.
' We were shown, hint niubt, a lull boll
of new cotton, raised by Mr. (ieoi-e W.
'(Mark, of Scott1 county, Indiana. The
cotton i of a finer quality than that
raised in l lie t-ottth, generally, and is
much whiter mid cleaner. We learn that
the faimcM in tbe whole county, have

It i admitted on all hand, especially

riu.i'e ''i"e;;'' to sell, aim W,f" more fortuue
seekers than any delegate our city had
there, lie returned homo the other day,
and before long had half a 'dozen irons
in the fire. Ono of his speculations has
a touch of fun in it, and w ill probably
do to tell. A well known auctioneer on
the corner of Lattery and I Vont streets,
holds forth tri-weckly in a large a1cs
roori, which is above a t.ne, spacious
basement, cligibl" forfMoragu. The base
ment at the time of which we write, was
unoccupied, and the bill "To Pent," on
the doar denoted the want of a tenant.
Our friend from Washoe saw the placard
and a speculation t once. He entered
and " took a lease of the premises for
three months. " The day alter the lease
had been executed, a number of curi
ous looking boxes wero carted to the
door and stored in the basement, - The
next day the auctioneer had a large gale,
and his room was crowded with custom
erg ; but before he had got fairly warm
ed to his knocking down business an in
tolerable odor began to permeate the
apartment. The olfactories of the knight
of the hammer were evidently not pe
culiar, for his etiRtomcrs became restive ;
handkerchiefs '.were pressed to noses,
and sundry expression ihe of disgust,
aBSuredJhim that air was horribly foul
everywhere. At, length the atmosphere
thickened,- and various jocular sugges
tion about catting it with a kinfe, ac
companied with the "cutting off" of the
speakers, roused the auctioneer to the
fact that his sale was being very serious
ly injured. It was evident that the
aroma came from tho basement, a fact (
that wa9 easily ferrcred out by the auc
tioneer follow-in? his nose in that direc
tion. ' Here he found our Washoe friend,
coat off ftnd up to tho arm-pits in work.
A number of boxes had been opened, and
scattered over the lloor some cut iu two
and others denuded of their canvass cov
erings were several juicy packages of
Limbourger cheese. Of course this dis

"Certainly, on the strength of this ai ti
do I hope to realize quite a sum "
. "If you realize a sum commensurate
with its strength, angrily suggested the
auctioneer, it will be quite a sum."
"That's my idea, too; what a coinci
dence.". The auctioneer saw that he had caught
a tartar, and foresaw ruin to his business
if the cheese continued to arrive, but he
was too shrewd himself not to know
that "Washoe" had tho law of him, so
he determined to compromise, "Washoe"
agreed to leave in consideration of a
handsome bonus, which was gladly paid

Farina's Rope r.nrtvR An nrmy-'-c'or-respondent
of the Uuffalo Express. Writes:
"You all remember lariiia, thfu
nambulist. Well, last Spring Farina Wan
at Washington. He had originated an
army bridge, constructed of ropes on Iho
Piondin type. I won't describe it in de
tail, but it was a single cable on which
was a single plank, and had a rope hand
rail on each si hy all guyed to steady, it.
Farina built many funanibulistio and
aerial castles on his Inventiou. It was
exhibited to Bonie one from the War Ie
pai -Unent, and favorably reported aipon.
Put Farina suggested and added, im
provements, and accomplished the attend
ance of Old Abe, General Scott, members
of the Cabinet, a member of other dig
nilaries, and a bery r f lady spectators.
Farnia was in his glory, all emjles apd
politenesss, and sanguine of success.
The rope bridge was strung over tho
canal at a considerable height from the
green and filthy wafer. Troops were in
attendance detailed to test th contriv
ance. They began moving iiv single? flic,
and quite a squad had crossed, the bridge
was crowded with them, when, hor
ror of horrors, tho brldire suddenly r.an-
sied, spilling- the poor fellows down in
the slime, .home hung on momniept
and then dropped down among their com
panions. Tho cry of alarm was soon
discovered to bo groundless, for the men
began creeping on shore, Woefully innddy
and bedraggled. ' i
Farnia at lirsl looked on dumbfonad-
ed, " but" said he, in narrating the ad
venture,"! saw that that was the death of
my army bridge; so I let out the laugli
that was bursting mo. Old Abe-looked
at me a moment and then laughed ; the
gallant old General, Cobinet ministers.
ami tames lonowoci, and there was an
Executive -chorus. Nothing, was eaitl
about the bridge by any of us. - Tho in
specting party went home, and I didnot
press tlie bridge matter any further."
Farina added, with a sigh,' " but' I
bridge was a good one for all that."
