[FROM OCR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
NEW YORK, September 8.
Some of the Warmouth delegation from
Louisiana ara lingering in the city awaiting
.the result of their recent interview with Presi?
dent Grant at Long Branch. The expectations
of the removal of brother-in-law Casey, Mar?
shal Packard, Postmaster Lowell, and the
other New Orleans Federal officials, are of the
very faintest character. I Interviewed one of
the delegates at the Fttih Avenue Hotel yester?
day. "Grant doesn't intend Lo do us justice,
air " observed the statesman; "he Intends to
lif ep every one of those flashed scoundrels in
office, and his sending to them for a statement
of their side of the controversy is all a dashed
piece of humbug. Don't you suppose (setting
red and excited) he has beard Casey's and
Packard's and Herwig's stories long before
this, dash them ?"
..Well, what will your party do,'' inquired I,
uit Grant decides against you, and refuses to
turn out the customhouse clique ?" "We will
fight him to the bitter end," cried my Louis?
ianian; "fight him in the State Convention, in
the National Convention; and if he is renomi?
nated, fight him for the Presidency. He little
knows the kind of man he is dealing with
ftt^-when he insults Henry Warmouth. Why. sir,
Warmouth is a hundred times the man Grant
is; indeed, he is the ab. :st min in either party
in the Southwest, and time will show it. He
is the most dangerous man In the Republican
party for Grant to quarrel with."
It will be remembered that in the accounts
of the interview between the Warmouthers and
the President In his cottage at Long Branch,
it was said that Mr. Grant became angry once
or twice, and brought his fist down on the
parlor piano with so much force that it made
the keys rattle.. I inquired of the delegate ll
this was true. "No," he replied; "the fact is
Grant was trying to keep on his legs during
the whole Interview, but one time he lost his
balance and fell against the plano." This
statement wu corroborated by two other
delegates who were present when I asked for
The "citizens," as the Tribune calls them, are
jubilant to-day over the injunction obtained
?esterday from Judge Barnard against M ?yor
[all, Comptroller Connolly, President Tweed,
the supervisors and. the aldermen. These
persons, more familiarly known as "the Tam?
many Bing," are enjoined from raising by tax?
ation or paying out of the treasury any sums
not first dxed and appropriated by the board
of apportionment, and from raising any more
?ioney from bonds in anticipation of the year's
revenue. The Injunction is but temporary, it
is true, but the applicants hope that after ar?
gument bas been hear J on Monday, lt will be
continued. To further that result the Tribune
this morning has a very nice notice ot Judge
Barnard, whom lt has hitherto been in the
habit of insinuating is a thief, and in league
with Jim Fisk in defrauding the Erle Railroad
If Barnard grants a perpetual injunction the
wheels of municipal government will suddenly
stand still, all public work will have to cease,
several thousand laborers on the streets,
parka, docks and city buildings will be dis?
charged, and the city creditors will have to
thrust their bills into their pigeon holes for a
season. A condition of things so peculiar as
this has never before occurred, and it is 1m
possible to say what the effect will be. It ls
W likely that some great popular convulsion will
occur. I hear tnat Tweed says that he will
shortly "astonish" the enemy. It must,
not be forgotten that last year, when
the young Democracy and the Republi?
cans made terrible war on Tweed in the
Legislature, that he was apparently "cor?
nered" for a time. His fall seemed to be
impending. Senator Genet, one of the lead?
ers of the young Democracy, had the temeri?
ty to step up to the mighty chief and snap his
fingers in his face. Bat in less than two
weeks Tweed had pulled the wool over Gree?
ley's eyes. He had bought up the Bepublican
members of the Legislature, and had even
bought up the leaders of the young Democra?
cy, including Senator Genet, and his new
charter was put through both houses with a
rush, receiving the Bepublican vote, and the
"Boss" came down to the city triumphant
and looking as serene as ever. He certainly
astonished the World, the organ of the young
Democracy, on that occasion, and while lt was
In a state of stupefaction, he seems to have
made lt his easy prey, for lt is his organ now.
?.The opening ot the annual lair of the Amer?
ican Institute, at the rink on SUty-second
street, last night, brought out Walt Whitman
as a reader ol his own poems. Els extraordi?
nary composition appears in all the papers to?
day. One calls it a catalogue ot the articles
on exhibition in verse. The question whether
Wait is a poet will probably never be definitely
settled, for as long as opinions differ about
everything, they will differ about his produc?
tions. Most people ol literary culture deride
his "barbaric yawp," and yet Emerson once
praised bim. Swinburne worships him. Mor?
ns and Bosettl, the new English poets, pro?
claim him to be the greatest ot American
bards, and Tennyson has Just sent him an in?
vitation across tne Atlantic to go over and
Uve with him.
Here is a sample of what Walt read at the
rink last night. Is ll poetry or bosh '

lazy Bohemian into Pfaffs lager beer cellar, in
Broadway, where all the newspaper wits and
scribblers of the day were wont to congregate.
There, under the sidewalk at the head of the
table, sat Walt Whitman, with his paw on a
mug of beer, while he was holding forth on
some question of aesthetics, amid the cheers or
jeers ot his reckless companions He was,
and ls still, a great brawny man, with a mag?
nificent head and face, and wearing a long,
heavy white beard and white moustache. He

back-woodsman, with loose clothes and a vast

who know him best, amiable. It is said that

PRINCE BISMARCK AT HOME.
A Visit to lt!? Estate In Pomerania-His
Character and Habits.
The San Francisco Bulletin publishes a pri?
vate letter irom an English lady of rank, who
accompanied a Countess Blucher on a visit to
Varzin, the country seat of Prince Bismarck,
in consequence ot this unceremonious invita?
tion from the Chancellor : "I say, Countess,
mind you bring Miss-with you in July.
I like girls who have the frankness to let me
know that they think me an old humbug."
The following is an extract from this letter :
The rattling noise of the carriage in the
court, and the baying of a band of watch?
dogs, brought the Princess von Bismarck, her
daughter, and two maids in Pomeranian cos?
tumes to the door. In every respect the Prin?
cess is in keeping with the mansion. She is
a lady on, I should say, the wrong side of
sixty, but fresh and comely withal. Placid
women keep their good looks far into old age.
Have you ever noticed what a peachy bloom
there is in the cheek of a silver-haired Qua?
keress ? Princess von Bismarch: bas this be?
coming bloom. She is quite an unpretending
person both In dress and manners, and does
not give herself any trouble to remind people
of her being a great man's wife. You must
not fancy because of ber plain simple ways
thar she ls vulgar or unintelligent. As the
fashion is in her native province, she received
scientific education in girlhood, and on leaving
school devoted her energies to domestic econ?
omy. I wish you could taste the game she
pots, or the hams that are cured, the sausages
that are manufactured, the cider that is bot
tied, and the fish that is dried under her super?
intendence at Varzin. The best part of the
provisions consumed in the Chancellor's towa
house comes from his Pomeranian estate. In
the good old-fashioned style,Mad. Bismarck has
a bunch of keys hung to her girdle. They de?
pend from a gold chatelaine Her husband pick
ed up somewhere In France. When sitting
in the drawing-room, or superintending the
farm women at their work, ber knitting
needles are always going. Everywhere in the
sitting-rooms, in the bed-rooms, one perceives
in knitted quilts and curtains, netted macas?
sars, embroidered pillows, evidences of her
manual skill and housewifely activity. Being
an old friend of the Countess, she kissed me.
When I was introduced she addressed to me a
hearty welcome in German. Her words had
a motherly ring as she kindly said to her
daughter, "You'll take care to be a good sister
to the/rctufein while she Is at Varzin." Thea
laughing, she told us that the Countess (Mlle.
B.smarck) was engaged, but as her "intended"
was with ber. she would not be too much oc?
cupied in thinking of him to attend to the
visitors, of whom I learned at dinner there
were no less than thirty in the house when we
CofTee was laid in the drawing-room. But
Otto said that would never do. So lie order?
ed a regular lunch, at which tea with thick
fresh cream figured. This repast was a good
deal In the nature of a Scotch breakfast, lor.
in addition to cold oast mutton, there were
thin, hard-baked oat-meal scones, honey, pr?
serres, and a sort of whiskey, distilled lrom a
mixture o? barley and potatoes. The furniture
used to be very plain. But Bismarck has
brought back from France carved oak side?
boards, tables, and bahuts, equal to what one
sees in the royal chateau ot Pau, and probably
as ancient. Many a Slgneurial residence In
France has contributed to HU his roomy Pom?
eranian schloss with pleasant riches. Our
Ka, for instance, was served In a porcelain
p?rvlce, taken lrom the Empress's apartments
at Complegne. This service was manufactur?
ed for Marie Antoinette, at the factory she
founded at Bourg-la-Belne, and lt is quite
unique. The ground is ol canary-yellow,and the
decorative p-rt consists of landscapes most ex?
quisitely done In Indiun Ink. The Princess
Bismarck, with truly German naivete, says :
"Ah ! you are admiring those little mugs.
They belonged to that poor Quetn of Louis
XVI. My husband bought the whole lot for a
thaler from a soldier. He (Bismarck) sent me
such lovely things from Versailles ! I will
show you the wonderful laces that I am going
to have made un for Leuchen's trousseau.
They were found by Otto in a most beautiful
Inlaid wardrobe, (which I have placed in my
bedroom at Berlin,) in the castle ot the Duch?
ess de Mouchy, that foolish Emperor's cousin.
Mein Gott ! what a foolish man that Emperor
was. I beard the Emperor Wilhelm say that
the Empress was also very silly and frivolous,
and that she hated Prussia. But she was not
wicked, notwithstanding her being the toe of
Princess Metternich in provoking the war."
Bismarck came in lrom fishing while we
were at luncheon. He Is a hearty, hilarious,
rough-and-ready sort of a man, with little cul?
ture of any sort, but a man ot keen mother
wit, which best comes out over a tankard of
beer. Without ceremony he took mg at the
coffee stage of the repast Into the hall to show
me a basket lull of trout, lresh from a little
noisy brook that runs into the lake on the
garden side of the house. Bismarck is a
patient fisher and a venturesome hunter. At
Varzin, nobody unacquainted with bis antece?
dents, could Bee In him the stuff for an astute
politician. Yesterday, when he was romping
with the gleesome Leuchen, he caught my eye
scanning bis massive head and soldierly coun?
tenance. I wanted to ?ce where his astute
genius lay, to find out vhere his Machiavellian
spirit lurks. "There,'" he cried out, "is your
English jraulein wont eriug that h cloven loot
does not show itself through my jack-boot.
Bismarck and thc devil are all one. Isn't it
so, old mother ?" (this was to the princess.)
"What have you got to say about the hoots
and horns? If you could onlj hear what ihe
Vienna papers are writing about my pact with
Belial, you'd plead forthwith for a divorce.
But, luckily, yon never look at the papers,
and therefore are in happy ignorance of my
coquetries with his Infernal Majesty."
Bismarck's study is situated on the ground
floor. It has the prosaic, uncomfortable ap?
pearance of an attorney's office. Long-legged
desks, break-back, bolt-uprigbt haircloth
chairs, and sofas imported from London by
way of Stettin; brass-handled endless drawers,
all docketed and numbered; many maps; un?
sightly, ponderous volumes, bound in calf?
skin; files of letters on a square table, solid as
if made for playing billiards, having held their
own against the charming French importa?
tion-) which embellish the other rooms of the
sch'oas. We, the visitors, nass our time in
rluinij, fishing, boating, botanizing, eating,
drinking, singing and dancing. Small as the
village is, lt has Its Orpheonist Society, which
sends a brass band to play every evening in
the garden of the schloss while we are at sup?
per; for we dine at hali-past two and sup at
seven. The farm laborers and their wives
and daughters are allowed often to dance on a
broad quadrille space. The Chancellor enjovs
the fun, and sometimes orders beer to be serv?
ed to the rustic dancers. I rode this morning in
the forest wita- Leuchen, Otto and Count ron
Luxburg, a Bavarian nobleman of old family
and large estates, the affianced lover ol the for?
mer. We cantered through some lovely
glades, startling as we went along, hares and
other kind of game. The Count is" naturally,
in the army. Every German nobleman l's.
But he is a dilletanti also, swears by Wagner,
and sings sentimental songs exactly like a
tenor ot the Italian opera house. He is mild
as a moonbeam, and of the same pale com?
plexion. Leuchen thinks him an Apollo dis?
guised in the uniform of an huzzar. For my
parr, his hair is too silvery, his e} es are loo
celestially blue, and his cheeks ot too pure a
red and white to please me. The fianc?e will be
the governing power in the household when
si?t? ?comes the wife of Luxburg. She is sin
-julai y like the Chancellor, which is tanta
L; . ..ut to saying that she has a deep-set, mer?
ry eye. a coarse nose, and a harshly square
jaw. Her fine skin and animated manners
alone preserve her from extreme plainness.
Bismarck banishes politics so laras it ls pos?
sible from Varzin. B?cher and Brass, bis
secretaries, have orders to isolate him so far
as in their power as much as ihev possibly
can from the outer world. Leuchen tells me
that the day on which the telegraphic wire
communicating between her lather's studv
and Berlin brought the new?, of Benedetii a
rupture with the King of Prussia at Ems. he
had given orders not to be pestered with offi?
cial business. When Dr. Bucher handed the
telegram to him he was lying on the bank of the
little river Wlpper, watching some rooks dying
over a rookery on the other side. A book which
he had been reading was lying on the moss
beside him. Of all other books in the world,
it was Gessners Deaih of Abel. There were
no visitors at the schloss, and the Chancellor
and his family were to dine with the village
schoolmaster, the worthy and erudite Herr
Fizervliz, for whom he entertains esteem and
sympathy. On glancing orer the dispatch, he
starred to hi.? feet, and, without letting fall a
word, rushed to the house. Meeting his wife
at the door, he kissed her affectionately, and
informed her that in half an hour he must be
off to Berlin. "I may not return 'or another
year. Do you see to the harvest and every?
thing connected with the larms, for I must not
bestow a thought upon them. War in a few
days with France is certain, and I shall accom?
pany the King and Moltke through the cam?
paign." Next day he net William and Fritz
at Brandenburg on their way from Coblentz to
Berlin, where they were going to push for?
ward military preparations.

THE G?EAT TIDAL ff AYE !
A MATTER-OF-FACT VIEW OF TBE
WRATH TO COME.
Get Ready Yoar Rafts, Skiff*, Yawls,
LorleJackets and Lilt Preservers.
[From the New Orleans Picayune.]
It ls a sad but an Imperious duty to warn the
inhabitants of all our Gulf and Atlantic coast
that it is time to begin to prepare for the great
tidal wave, which, according to the calcula?
tion ot a profound astronomer, ls to sweep
over the whole ocean coast from Hatteras to
Bahia, to the height of filly feet or more, on
the night of the fifth of October, or in the
morning of the sixth. We have thirty days
only to prepare ior this event, and with all
the diligence that can be employed our citi?
zens can barely hope to be ready. On the
other occasion our ancestor had a warning of |
forty years; in proportion to the difference in
the extent of the expected deluge, we have
a shorter warning. The tidal wave of I
Agassiz must submerge all parts ol the surface
of the eastern shore that are not more than
lorty feet above the coast level at flood tide.
Florida will become a wild waste of water?,
and every Indian not tne possessor of a canoe
must take refuge in the upper branches ol the
lotty cypress or the majestic magnolia. The
vessels in ail the harbors must allow addi?
tional cable and a wider swing. The occu?
pants ot wood houses must be prepared to be
floated away in ruins.
The public will understand fully that this
tidal wave ls not our fault. We would prevent
lt if we could. But there are "circumstances"
over which ve have no control, such as the
attraction of the moon, the effects of rotatory
motion, the Joint Influence of several planets
all operating simultaneously, and the impera?
tive necessity which always compels natural
forces to conform to tie calculations and pre?
dictions of science. If the matter bad been
at an earlier day called to our notice, in all its
serious importance, we are not quite sure that
we could have changed the character of the
But leaving the matter of responsibility to be
discussed after the deluge, our present duty ls
to suggest the course to be pursued in view of I
the Inevitable calamity. The flood will come
suddenly and with violence. The ignorant and
bigoted may look upon it only as an ordinary
equinoctial storm, but their grievous mistake
will be manifest to then when they float past
the third-story windows of our more substan?
tial edifices on the wrecks ol their own houses.
A tidal wave flay feet hign cannot be trifled
with. If lt reaches a perpendicular altitude of
no more than twenty-five feet, lt will float
three-fourths of all the wooden houses in the
city and country. Moreover, lt will not be a
gradual, stealing, slow invasion ot muddy
water, such as sometimes creeps up
into the rear of the city, day by day, and Inch
by inch; but the green, salt and mighty mes?
senger from the ocean will come upon us all
at once, with the besom of destruction In Its
wide dash and ruthless onslaught. All our
lower stories will be flooded, and the beds,
bedding, klbitep furniture, poultry tv : wood?
piles ot dweaWgs, and the stalls of markets,
the shops of grocers, the stores of milliners,
the saloons ot those who sell potable fluids,
and all the haunts of pleasure, will come to
sudden ruin. Our streets will be turned Into
rushing torrents, bearing sad wrecks, shingles,
weatherboards, rails, lumber, household fur-1
niture, family rafts, cats, pigs, doats and many
other struggling swimmers. The flood, while
it lasts, will be very rapid, and with all allow?
ance tor impedimenta, those who float upon it
will be carried along at the rate of forty miles
an hour. The telegraph may give us a few
hours' warning after the first dash of the great
tidal wave upon the Atlantic coast, but not
enough for due preparation. Therefore the
work should begin ac once. In view of the
uncertainly of all predictions, lt ls just as pos?
sible that the great wave may come a few
hours sooner than the time fixed as a few hun?
dred years later. Men of science depend upon
their figures and their data. They know
what must be, they know when it ought to be,
and if events de not correspond with predic?
tions, their theory must not be held account?
able. It is belter that a hundred predictions
should fall than that faith in scientific calcula?
tions should be lost or weakened.
As the great wave may result fatally to many
while threatening all, we venture the timely
suggestion that those who have not prepared
for such event by paying their debts and pro?
viding tor their families by policies of life in?
surance or otherwise, should Invest a small
sum in cork Jackets, gum-elastic bags, rafts,
skiffs, yawls, oars, and other necessities for a
new departure on a newly imposed flood. The
great salt tidal wave will not be flt to drink,
and therefore they should provide lresh water
for their boats, togelher with such other beve?
rages as taste, habit or convenience
may suggest. The voyage may be pro?
longed ny their being swept out to
the lakes or Gulf by the retiring wave,
in which event they might find it pleas?
ant and profitable to be supplied with fishing
tackle and a few volumes of entertaining mo?
dern literature, taking care to select the dry

pm* INFLUENCE OF TEMPERATURE
ON HEATLB.-In the fall the difference between
the temp?rature of night and day ls greater than
at any other time of the year. In the early au?
tumn the quicksilver sometimes rtses as high dur?
ing the day as in the most fervid summer weather;
while at night lt often sinks to an almost wintry
point. The haman body not being made or steel
or India rubber, sensibly reels these tremendous
changes. To fortify the system against them, a
genuine tonic ls required; and the public has long
since discovered that among thia description of
medicines HOSTE TTE R'S STOMACH BITTERS is
infinitely the best. It gently quickens the circu?
lation, regulates the bowels, tones the liver, bra?
ces the nerves, and thus puts the whole physique
on Its defence against the vicissitudes of temp??
rature In our climate. Few, If any cases of epi?
demic rever are heard or In localities where lt ls
in common ase. As lt becomes more and more
widely known, and the demand for lt Increases,
chills and fever, and the billons remittent seem
to recede before lt, and If ever lt should come
Into univers n nae, these diseases would cease to
be known aa the scourges of oar low-lying and
marshy districts. That homely blt of proverbial
philosophy, that "prevention ls better than cure,'
should be especially borne In mind In the autumn
months; and indeed in all seasons, together with
the fact that, among all the preventives of mala?
rious disease, Hostett r's stomach Bitters ls the
most safe and potent.,
Be certain, however, to obtain the genuine arti?
cle, as countless Imitations or a pernicious char
cter are abroad. See that the externals are all
right, and remember that Hoatetter's Stomach
Bitters Is sold In bottles alone.
