-A Mr. Eckcrson died a few days ago, in New
York, of hydrophobia, after prolonged and
most horrible sufferintrs. Tho Philadelphia
papers, and somo journals in other cities, mis?
taking the name, have announced the death of
Mr. John Ericsson, the inventor, and followed
with lengthy obituaries of that gentleman.
-General Grant will remain at bis present
residence for a few days after his inaugura?
tion, until the Executive mansion can be re?
paired and put in good order. President John
eon and family will be the guests of Mr. J.
Coyle, publisher of the Intelligencer in Wash?
ington, for abqut a week after the expiration of j
Jais term, when it is expected they will go to
Baltimore, in pursuance of the promise made l ,
to tho committee of the councils of that city.
-San Franoisco has had a wedding that, for
extravagance in dress, weaPh of outfit, and
value of presents, sustains ber ambition to | '
-rank second only to New York among the cities
of America. The onde was the daughter of a M
merchant prince. Mr. Friedlander, known as ' ,
the "Grain King." 1 he bridegroom was the '
eon of Dr. Bowie, a leading physician. The
trousseau cost $10,000, and was foll and mag ni
fixent beyond that of any former California
bride. The presents, besides $150.000 from the
father, amounted to $30,000 in jewelry and gold
and silver service.
-The Siamese Twins are hardly the fashion
this time in London. On their last visit e very
body went to see them, and Lord Lytton (then
Sir E. Bulwer), made use of their name and
their singular tie to satirize English society,
The press now speaks of tba exhibition with
vmconoealed disgust. The twins are old mon
And their wrinkles und worn features malo the
spectacle some degrees moro repu'sive than
""before. One of the Journals wanted thc police
?to prevent them from appearing in public; but
?the z?al for tba proprieties has hardly reached
such ap'ch as yet, and the suggestion was
laughed al. An ing?nions admirer seeks to
populace thom by announcing that "they
were slaveholders, enthusiastic Southerners,
And lost largely by ti e collapse of the South."
.As twin Confederates, it ia surmised they havo
? peculiar claim upon En rlish sympathy.
-Late East Indian papers give accounts of
the violent earthquake which shook various
parts of Betigal between January 10 and ll.
It was most severely felt in Cachar and Assam
'Th e earthquake was felt as far west of Calcutta
as Dioapore. Cachar, where it was most se?
vere, 13 on the lice ct volcanic action which,
stretching from the Eastern Himalayas, runs
?own the coast of Burmah, whore there arc
several extinct volcanoes, to the Eastern Arch?
ipelago, where volcanic phenomena on alargo
scale are ot frequent occurrence. At the latter
place the earth seemed agitated by a groat
wave, risiajrin. a swell twenty feet high, toss?
ing trees and buildings about, and making
the hills reel~aa the convulsion passed. Tho
river chan?od ita course and ran upwards for
an hom-, tossing thc water fifty feet into the
air and forming numerous water spouts. The
earth opened hi hundreds of places, vomiting
up volumes of bluo sind and water aud en?
gulfing hon es, ca^JJo and mon, in somo cases
closing over what it had swallowed, and in
others remaining iu pawning abysses, showing
the roofs of housjs twenty feet below tho sur?
face. Thc convulsion ?vas folt ovor all of Lower
Bengal at thc same time, and coutinucd with
slight sho.ks for several days.
-Tho buming of tho stoam^r Jlittio Ste?
phens, in Red River, on tho night of thc Ut
instant, involving the loss of a largo uumber of
lives, has ben mentioned. Further dotai s
by mail represent tue s^eno as truly heartrend?
ing. The hour or midnight had just been
chimed by thc c'ock when the pilot discovered
signs ot fin on the force istle, whore, it seems,
a large quantity of hay had been stowed.
FJUT quick, successive taps of the bell gave
tho alarm to tho crow. That alarm was thc
knell that summoned sixty-one souls to meet
their Maker. Ex^rtious almost superhuman
were made by thc men. but all to no purpose.
Nearly ono hundred frantic, terror-stricken
peoplj-men, wemen and children-wcro col?
lected on tho after truard with the fl imc8 his?
sing and crackling behind an! tho prospect
of a watery gravo ba'.ore them. Herofathe n
could be seen, hunting for their wives and
children, wives for thtir husbands, and chil
,drea for their parents, amid the shrieks and
cries of tho excited crowd. As the flames a
proached, all tho men jumped overboard, son
to find a watery crave, and others tosa
tlirmsolvc3 by swimming; bat not a wrm:
could bo induced to take thc cold water, ai
they perished in thc flames. lu less than hi
an hour from the discovering of tho fire tl
vessel was a total wreck, and over sixty pe
sons had perished. Dunug the fire, a sign
act of heroism was performed by Philip Hi
the carpenter, and a deck hand, named Jacc
8toiu. Twenty kegs of powder had boen d
posited in the magazine in tho hold. Wit
the presence of mind and a daring that ha-i
few parallels in the annals of steamboalinj
they, in the taco of a horrible death, carrie
the powder up and threw it overboard,
moment lost, and there would have been n
one to tell the awful story.
-Monday was "opening day" in New Yor
with the milliners and modistes, and the vt
noaa establishments are thronged according
ingly with fashionable fair ones in pursuit c
new styles, &c. The bonnet of the comin
season, it soems, is to be smaller than the on
now in vogue, with little i rimming at tho Bidet
and no strings. A new style of round hat i
called the Rosalind. It is made of fancy strav
without brim, high in the centre, with a loo
of green satin OB one side, and white lace
edged with green satin ribbon, falling at tb
back. Frico e take a wide ran-e, say all th
way from $10 tu $45. Small capes are to b
the prevailing style. Black Bilk sacques fo
street war are loosely fitting in the back, en
tending a little below the belt; the front is
trifle deeper, while it is narrow on tho shoul
ders and open under the arm, heiser joined b;
the belt. The trimming is of satin folds au
black lace edging.
SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 6, 1869.
The New Cabinet.
The riddle is solved at last. Presiden
Grant has announced the members of hil
Cabinet, and his nominations have beei
promptly confirmed by the Senate. Th?
knowiiigones, as the result shows, have beet
all at fault in their conjectures. The mer
whomthe new President called around him
are unquestionably able, practical and well
fitted to conduct their respective depart?
ments with advantage to the government
and credit to themselves. But, in his se?
lection of advisers, Grant plainly indicates
that he means to be President in fact as
well as in nano. There is not, in tie
wbolo list, ? man whose individual force ol
character or tx renie views and promincnf
identification with Radical measures would
give room for thc fear that he might exert
au evil sway over the policy of the nev
administration. This, at least, is some?
thing in our favor.
Mr. Elihu B. Washburne, of Illinois, th:
new Secretary of State, was born in Main?,
in 1816, served an apprenticeship in a
printing office, studied law in Howard Uni?
versity, and, removing to the West, prac?
ticed law at Galena, Illinois. He was
elected a representative to thc 33d Congress
from that State, and re-elected to the 34th,
35th and 36th Congresses, serving on two
occasions as chairman of the Committee on
Commerce. He was eleoted to the 37th and
38th Congresses, and on aoeount of his having
served continuously for a longer period
than any other member of the 38th Con?
gress, usage .awarded to him the title of
" Father of the House." He was tho author
sf the bill reviving the office of Lieutenant
general, which was conferred on General
?rant. He was re-elected to the 39th and
10th Congresses. Mr. Washburne was
argely instrumental in bringing General
Crant into notioe under the Lincoln admin?
istration, and has ever since been his warm
supporter, giving him countenance and
strength when the popular tide ran against
aim. There seems te be a strong link of
sympathy between President Grant and the
reteran Congressman, who has for some
ime been regarded hy the public as the
souring power behind the throne. Mr.
iVasbburne has been noted in Congress for
lis bitter and uncompromising opposition
o financial rings and plundering cliques,
vnd has fairly won the brave title of ?'Watch
log of the Treasury." He is a decided
hough not an extreme Republican, and is
ikely to throw all his influence on the side
if retrenchment and an economical admin?
Mr. A. T. Stewart, the dry goods million
lire, of New York City, who is to preside
mr the Treasury Department, is new to
political life. A Scotchman by birtb, he
Degan his career in a very humble position,
ind working his way up by integrity, reso?
lution and self-denial, is now able to count
ais property by tens of millions of dollars.
Mr. Stewart, wc believe, has never been
guilty of a generous action, being as re?
markable for his inflexibility io ci acting
the last farthing which is his due as for his
istonishing commercial success. As an ex?
ecutive and administrative officer he will
lave but few equals, and if he devotes to
i.-ilional affairs, as he doubtless will, the
ibility, the honesty and the incorruptibil
ty whioh havo marked his individual
tareer, there are hard times in store for
he thieves and plunderers who gi ow fat by
"eeding at the public crib. Mr. Stewart is
well advau?-'1 in years, but is full of life
md vigor. Duri.ig thc late cinipaigu he
?vas a steady fricni of General Grant, and
ias lately thrown an anchor to windward
jy heading a subscription to buy Grant's
louse for his successor, General Sherman.
Mr. Stewart is not without ambition, and
may have an eye to thc Presidency in thc
Genera! Schofield, as was intimated by
General Grant previous to his inauguration,
?ill rctaiu, for thc present, the portfolio of
Mr Adolphe E. Borie, of Pens-j'vania,
the S cretary of ibo Navy, is a retired
merchant, of Philadelphia, having fe.
many years been engined in 'bc E ist India
trade, from which bc retied a princely
fortune. He is regardod 1.9 one of the
wealthiest men iu the country. JJjn private
chancier is spotless; but I : h\s never been
mixed up in politics. L... tig the war he
was an active worker in behalf of thc Uuiou
cause, and he served for several years as
vice president of the Union League. In
summer he resides at Torreedale, near
Philadelphia, where he basa magnificent
villa ; but in -inter he lives in Puiladel
General Jacob D. Cox, of Ohio, who takes
charge of the Department of the Interior,
served throughout the war in tho Federal
army and ali ?une J the rank of Brigadiei
Genetal. lu loCO. ho was elected Governor
of Ohio, which offi-ie he held uni il 16G8
Gener.tl Cox is a man of first rate ability,

Senator J. A. J. Creswell, of Maryland,
the new Postmaster-General, was born in
1828, uad cam- to the bar in 1850 He
was a member of the Maryland House of
Delegates in 18G1 and 18(52, and was elect?
ed a represe ul ai ?ve to thc 38(h Congress
Ia Mircb, ISGo, he was chosen United
States Senator for thc unexpired term of
Senator T. H. H'cks, deceased. Senator
Creswcil is a mau of ability, and belongs,
politically, to the class known as " South?
Judge E. B. Hoar, of Massachusetts,
whom President Grant has designated as
Attorn ey-General, while soarcely known in
politics has won considerable distinction as
a lawyer. He ?3 about fifty years of age,
and severel years ago relinquished a lucra?
tivo practice for the seat on the Supreme
Bench of Massachusetts,which he has since
held. He is said to be a man of the big* ?st

Letter from James Pagan.
CHESTEB, SOUTH CABRUNA, January 6, 1869.
Dear .Sir-I havo just received a communication
from Geo. W. Gramm, Esq., Treasurer of Patapsco
Guano Comnany, requesting my opinion of tho "PA
TAP-.CO," to be sent direct io you-which I take
pleasure in doing, as I -merely bo'.leve that it is the
best fertilizer now in uso. I have tested its merits
fully, and find those who have used lt alongside of
other popular fertilizers, do not hesitate to give lt
the preference; (hero aro ss many kinds in use hero
as there are merchants wbo deal in it. No two
houses recommend tho same kind, but during the
last season I bad a good opportunity of introducing
the "PATAFSOO" GUANO to aomo extent.
I pave to t?>n (10) different planters 500 pounds
GUAMO to put each OD one aero of land, and agreed to
lake part of thc product for pay. They all buccoeded
well. I got nearly 100 per cent profit from tho ten
acres, and tho planters are satisfleu that they got 60
to IOU j cr cent, moro than they could have expeoted
on tho same land without' the GUAMO. I also sold
small quantities to somo twenty or thirty p antera,
who tried it on all eons of land. Somo of thom
certify to wonderful result-, and every ono of them
have engaged to take mora for tho coining season. I
expect to sell (cn limos the amount which was taken
I began in 1807, and have not hoard one man tay
it did not over-pay him for bis outlay. In somo ro
spec ts it u.U8t be supetior to the Poruvian Guano.
For instance, you can mix tho seed with tho PATAPS?
CO, and the Poruvian must be covered beloro plant?
ing. The "PATAPSCO" acts at oncouoon the sp rou ia,
as soon os lt comes from the seed and makes it start
right on growing, and provonts tbo sickly slage
which cotton, without tho stimulus, has to go
through-you know thi '. For two or three wo. ks
thc cotton plant is in a condition which is so pre
carious that no planter can say that he ha? a certain
stand I believe tho ' PATAP?CO" secures a better
and more healthy stand than can bo had by tho ap?
plication of any other fertilizer. 1 speak from ex?
periments made for two years. I have planted a lit?
tle ootlou for tho purpose of watching tho result,
ind am surj that roiling tho seod in PATAPSCO
GOAN J will secure an early and healthy stand of cot?
ton, which is like getting a good start m any kind ol
1 would recommend 253 to 300 pounds to the acre
I ma lc 600 pounds lint from one acre by planting ULU
pounds of "PATAPSCO," which mide 260 pounds tho
year beiore w.thout it, and tho season of 1807 was
better for cott? n ihan 1803. ihc samo field on the
part not fertilised mado moro in 1861 thou ia '03. I
tutus it woul pay beat, bowov.r, for about oQO
pounds to tho ocie. Respectfully,
