Tub news that reaches us Huh morn

disheartening kind. Nearer home, at

"thfro is nothing to fear. On tho con

Ixk'ai, politicians and candidates

.interview with a Republican that is
very interesting reading. With the

to suit himself, regards it as certain
Hint the Kcpnhlican party can carry
Slwlby county, and that it is almost a
matter of indifference who the Dcmo
raU nominate, as their ticket is certain
to bo defeated. Of eourse we don't
agree with this Republican, but his
views arc worthy of a place in the Ar

statement from tho other side.

One of the youngest members from

Tlio Uuiuberianil river, which began
rising on tho 11th, having been sta
tKinary for three days, is now on a
regular booin. The river did not rise
to any appreciable extent during the
melting of tho snow, tho pri-K-nt tlood
teing tlie immediate result of heavy
rains in tho uper Cumberland. Tele
phone lines are down at a nnmber of
towns along the valley, and advice
are meager, but still sulficient to cause
considerable alarm. The rise was
very sudden, and when it got a good
start, reached two or three inches an
hour. All the small streams flowing
into the Cumberland are very much
swollen, ami large (inantitiiti of drift
are carried on thcJsurgingWoni of tho
flood, which has swept away thousands
of sawed and unsawed logs, broken
the pontoon bridgo at Nashville, and
submerged all tho lowlands north of

St. Ijouib, Mo., February 13. At
2 :LT) o'clock "Uiis afternoon the gorge
in the river at this jsiint broke, and
the ice began flouting out. No damage
has occurred as yet.
' Uitiv There yas another heavy
movement of ice in the harbor this
afternoon, and great fields of the
gorge above tho bridge came down
and rilled up the! open iilaces below
that structure, lwit it did no damage.
There is now a solid mass of ice from
a point opposite the cotton compress
to Carondelet, a distance of about four
miles, but from the latter place to
Jefferson Barracks, the river is clear.
Then! is also a clear space of two or
three miles above the bridge. An
other movement is liable to take place
at any moment.

Ai-ton, III., February 13. A dis
astrous tlcx'id is imninient along the
Mississippi unless the weather turns
colder and locks up the overflowing
streams now pouring their torrents
into the Mississippi. This river is
now almost at flood bight, but is still
frown solid, with the ice gorged in
many places clear to the bottom.
There is probably at present -as much
iec in the river between here and St.
Jjonis as was ever before known. The
Missouri and many smaller streams
emptying into it were reported break
ing up yesterday, and the same report
comes trom the northern part of this
State. In respect to streams tributary
to the Mississippi and the Illinois, un
less these northern floods are checked
by cold weather, until the present
high water in the Mississippi runs out,
a great flood seems inevitable. All
depends upon the weather in North
ern Illinois, Iowa and Missouri for the
next week. The river here rose nine
inches Inst night, and is still coming
up.

Boston, Mass., February 13. The
rainfall in this section is almost un
precedented. It this city the fall has
been nearly six inches in 4 wo days,
equal to the average fall in t to months.
A vast amount of minor damage has
been done in'many parts of JNew
England, especially to roads and
bridges, causing irksome delays to
travel. At Foxboro, Mass., the dam
at Freeman's woolen mill is gone, and
tho mill has been swept awav. The
Union straw works ar flooJed, and
Canton Bros. & Bixby's straw works
are tottering. At Canton, Kingley's
iron works, the Washington mill and
the Revere (Vipper (Jompany's works
are more or less flooded and in danger
of destruction. Outward trullic on the
Boston and Providence rail
road is suspended, owing to
numerous, washouts. The burst
ing of the Money Brook sewer
on Clay street, Boston highlands,
hist night, caused the conlidcmeut
of Stoney brook within too narrow
limits. A section of tho city covering
nearly a square mile, was overflowed,
flooding the basements of all dwell
ings and stores, driving the residents
into, the upper stories and causing a
loss of fl.r0,000. Several hundred
fainilieire affected, and several fac
tories at Brockton and outlying lands
are flooded. Many basements are
flooded, and the loss is fr0,0(H. At
Peabody the water is four feet deep on
Washington street, and tho tlood is
the worst ever known. The loss will
reach $-""0,000. In Middlesex county
the rivers and streams are higher than
for ten yearx and many mills have
shut dowii. At' Taunton the Old
(Vlony railroad refuses to sell tickets
to most points on its line. Business
nu n are moving their stocks to a safe
place. Over 1U0 men arc engaged in
trying to save Morris bridge dam,
which, if lost, will entail unpre
cedented nun and disaster. A
wall of nx'k and cotton waste
lias been erected 100 feet on
each side, but tho water is pouring
over the road three feet deep. Some
factories are in danger of floating. At
East Weymouth every factory iscloscd.
Whitman's xmd dam is on the point
of giving way. This will flood the
entire valley. The track of the flood
is strewn' with all manner of debris,
including dead fowls and animals. At
Concord, N. II., and further north,
the telephone and telegraph win s are
I all iiowu. iiicrc is great ruin ami ;
damage on every band. The snow is I
i rapidly disappearing, and the v-rst is j
i not yet At lVabody, Ma., tor oUO j
! feet the main street is under water to
ju depth oi thirty-six inches. Twenty I
j tanneries are flooded, and several j
) families have kt:i rescued in boats.
At Qniney tbe canal is overflowing
and factories are under water. At
Hudson, Mass., the river has over
flowed, carrying off most of the
bridges between Westboro and Hud
son. Tower Bros.' machine-shop, T.
S. Carter A Co.'s and Moreten &
Chamberlain's shoo factories are
closed. Railroad travel is almost en
tirely suspended. Many other cities
and towns are reported under water.
Water ia .everywhere, cellars and base
ments are flooded, bridges are gone
and the lowlands aro submergixl. The
damage will be many thousands of
dollars. In tho Boston Highland dis
trict, the Westniitihter apartment hotel
will bo a complete wreck. Tho dwell
ings on the flooded streets aro mostly
throe-story marble fronts, and, as tho
ground had settled greatly before the
flood, it is probable that most of this
stvtion will have to bo rebuilt. Resi
dents an' living in the upper stories
and are reached only bv boats. A
serious flood has inundated a large sec
tion oT the lowland occupied by ten
ants in Dorchester. Tho basements
and first lliors are afloat and the occu
pants an' unable to leavo their homes.
Th.i flood has caused the shutting
down of both factories of the Boston
Belting Company and tho Roxhury
carpet works. Tho German Baptist
church, on Vernon street, is under
mined and liable to collapse at any
moment. There is seven feet of water
in tho basement of tlie Rugbies Street
Baptist church. Tho water is still ris
ing in the flooded districts.

Washington, February 13. The Po
tomac is still rising and thu ice is
gorged at many places between here
ami Harper's Ferrv. There is some
hope to-night that the gorge below the
city can be broken through, ami that
scrions damage by flood may be thus
averted.

Woovsockrt, R. I., February 13.
Many mills are flooded bv from three
to six feet of water. The water is
three feet deep on the streets. The

New Havks, Conn., February 13.
Not for vears has such a severe storm
occurred as that which began on
Thursday last. The great expanse of
low lands between this city and
North Haven is transformed into a
great lake by the overflowing of the
Qjiinnipinc river. At Mcriden it
overflowed nnd caused the stoppage
of many manufactories. In Walling
ford Doolittlo Bros.' dam gave way,
causing heavy damage. Most of the
Birmingham factories were shut
down to-day on account of tho water
tilling the w heel pits.
Floods la tho NaHtiaoni.
Baltisiorr, Jln.j February 13. The
warm rain last night ami this morn
ing caused a break in the ice gorge in
the Susquehanna river opposite Port
Deposit The water backed up in the
town with such rapidity that the lower
portion was flooded almost instantly.
Several small dwellings were washed
away, lumber-yards ami wharves were
inundated, ana the Pennsylvania rail
road depot was filled with water to the
depth of four feet The telegraph
ollice had to bo abandoned, and com
munication with the place is entirely
cut oil". Parties from there report the
low lying district to be blockaded with
ice, piled twenty feet deep in some
places. At Havre dc (trace the tern
porary bridge recently constructed by
the Baltimore and Ohio railroad was
completely wrecked, and it was re
ported that several lives were lost, but
the report lacks confirmation. Full
particulars of tlie flood cannot be ob
tained here to-night, but heavy dam
age is believed to have resulted. There
is still a heavy gorge in the river, nnd
the water is not running with suf
ficient freedom to encourage tho hope
that the flood will subside to-iiicht
Travel over the Columbia and Port
Deposit road is suspended, as the
tracks for over a mile aro entirely
covered with ice and water.
Floods In New York and Pennsyl
vania. Nkw Yokk, February 13. The rain
which had been falling almost inces
santly for two days stopped about
noon to-day, but the weather continues
somewhat tog)?)'. Reports of floods nt
various points continue to be received.
In the neighborhood of Kingston, Nj.
Y., the waters of Rondout and Wal
kill creeks are very high, and there are
a number of gorges and much over
flowed land. Heavy freshets have oc
curred at several places in the Cats
kills. At Dundee, N. J., the Susque
hanna railroad bridge has been weak
ened by having a nuraler of its sup
ports knocked out by ice. At Pater
son, N. J., tho Passaic river is Ave feet
above high-water mark ami still ris
ing. At Bordentown, N. J., the ice
is gorged in the Delaware river
and there aro indications of a freshet
as destructive as that of 1857. At Har
risburg, Pa., the ice in the Susquehanna
broke this morning, doing considera
ble damage. It gorged nine miles be
low, ami the water legan to back up,
rising three feet in an hour, and carry
ing ice over both the Reading mid
Pennsylvania railroad tracks to the
depth of several feetfrendcring traffic
entirely out of the question. All of
the works in the southern section of
the city were Hooded and work bus
lended. The poor people living in
the lowland district were compelled to
occupy the second story of their
houses. This is the second time this
winter that they have been driven to
such straits, and in consequence the
greatest Buffering now prevails. An
ice jam is formed iu Lycoming creek,
at Williamsport, Pa., and many build
ings are flooded. A number of bridges
have been washed awav.

Tho damage by the floods in this citv

Seven hundred dams, and bridges have
been swept awav on almost every

From all sections comes the same

Wasiiinoton, February 13. Com
missioner of Patents Montgomery has
forwarded to Congress his annual re
port for the calendar year ended le
cemlier 31, lsfSo. It is recommended
that some provision he'iuade by which
the office should be furnished with
complete records of patent cases de
cided in Federal Courts forpublieation
in the Vmztllt. The commissioner
says tho examining corj is wholly
insuflicient to perform its important
duties, and an increase of the number
of employes is recommended, as well
as generfil increase iu the other divi
sions. The allowances of salaries of
assistant commissioners are said to be
inadequate, ami tlie practical result of
the small salaries is that many of the
most valuable examiners desert their
employment every year to enter a
more lucrative field. It is also recom
mended thnt the salary of the assistant
commissioner be increased from SUHHt
to $:.'()() per annum. The attention of
Congress is directed to tho fact that
there are at present no statutes em
powering or directing the Attorney
(ieneral to institute proceedings in
the name ui the Tinted States or
otherwise, "i cancel or annul a patent
which may have Is-en fraudulently
obtained or unwisely or inadvertently
granted, ami which may work great
injury to the public. In conclusion,
the commissioner says that thirty
years ago there were but thirteen
classes of invention. To-day there are
in the office 177 distinct classes. Iu
the year 1H.V, 413") applications for
patuiits were received, while during
the last calendar year the office re
ceived 35,717 applications. The total
receipts of tho Patent Olfice during
the year were $I,1SH,0!I, and the ex
penditures were $1,02-1,370, leaving a
balance of $103,710. The number of
caveats filed was 2-V2, and the num

AYwiftyvf, That in common with tlie
people of the State of New York and

less integrity, of eminent usefulness
and of unswerving fidelity to every

J'ted, That in the private walks
of life, as well as in the performance of
public duty, he combined the match
less virtues of the citizen with the un
selfish devotion and patriotism of tlie

long life devoted to the development
mid prosperity of his native State a
