SAMUEL HENRY DICKSON.
A. GRACEFUL TRIBUTE TO DEPART?
Large Meeting of tile Medical Society
-Kesolatlons and Add renata by Dra.
Prioleau, Geddings, lYragg, Kin?
loch, Shepard and Portlier.
The memorial meeting of the Medical Socle
ty of South Carolina, and of the medical pro?
fession generally, held at the Roper Hospital
last Friday afternoon to take appropriate
action in view of the death of their distin?
guished brother physician, bas already been
briefly reported in these columns, and we
now take pleasure in giving a full report of
the Interesting and touching addresses that
were made on this Impressive occasion.
The chair was occuplad hythe president of
the society, Dr. J. Ford Prioleau, who, in ex?
plaining the objects of the meeting, said:
Gentlemen-lt Is my melancholy duty to in?
form you officially of the death of one of our
most cherished and distinguished members,
ILL Samuel Henry Dickson. This esteemed
?eotleman Bank to his rest upon the 31st of
Maren, at his residence in the City of Phila?
Dr. Dickson entered this society, according
to its record, In 1817. During the numerous
years ol his residence In this city he ever took
a lively interest In its prosperity, and was
amongst its most active members. By a ref?
erence to our minute book lt will be seen that
his name ls conspicuous wherever questions
of public or professional moment required an
unusual amount of talent for their solution.
Honoring the society, the society delighted to
honor him, aod, among ?ts many gift B, bestowed
upon him one of the highest-the professional
chair ot practice in the medical school under
Its auspices. 1
Possessing a versatility of talents remark?
able in its. scope, Dr. Dickson was distin?
guished In this society for his erudition
and his gentle courtesy of manner. Cov?
ered with Honors at home and abroad, at the
ripe age of seventy-four years he has been
taken away. This society, regretting his lona
and honoring his memory, as a tribute to his
worth has called this special meeting to give
expression to the sentiments lt entertained for
Gentlemen of the Profession who are not mem?
bers of the Society-We cordially invite you to
assist in our proceedings.
The chair Is now ready for any business
which may be brought belore it.
Dr. Prioleau was followed by Dr. E. Ged?
dings, who said:
Destiny shapes our course through life, and
be this short or long, relentless death, ever
following in the train, sooner or later burls us
Into eternity, and, the mortal career thus
ended, all tnat can remain ls the grateful
memory of friends of persistent virtues and
the noble deeds of a wen-spent life.
This has been well exemplified lo the case of
our endeared friend. Professor Samuel Henry
Dickson, L.L. D., M. D., who recently de
- parted this life, in the City of Philadelphia, In
ni3* seventy-fourth year. . He died far away
from his native home; but even there-as
elsewhere-he took his final exit from life
crowned with honors. To add one more
tribute to bis laurel crown, and to bemoan
our own bereavement, we have assembled
aere on this melancholy occasion.
Professor Dickson was, In ail respects, a re?
markable man; and Charleston-the place of
his birth-as well as South Carolina, bis native
State-which he ever loved-even In their Bad
adversity, now when he ls no more, will ever
cherish his memory as one of their most pure
' and gilled sons.
Few men combined in their character more
of tho?e attributes calculated io secure the
highest esteem and tenderest affections-to
Inspire an unstinted admiration for high and
versatile talent, great learning and command?
ing, genius than Dr! Dickson. " Owing to the
combination of these elements In his charac?
ter, he achieved a notable, early success in
his professional career, and laid the founda?
tion of that preeminent distinction which
followed him to the grave, and which now,
that he has been taken from us, will be ac?
knowledged and appreciated as long as?memory
But our lamented friend was not alone a
?distinguished physician. He possessed other
attributes which endeared him to those who
sought his counsels, and bestowed upon him
their confidence-to relieve them from those
sufferings, the common heritage ot our na?
ture. Under such circumstances, his kind and
bland manner, his tender and heartfelt sym?
pathies, bis genial and soothing conversation
-ever bright and captivating; oft-times con?
tributed as much-sometimes more-to as?
suage the pangs and sorrows of the afflicted
heart, and the agonies of the frame, than all
Che drugs of the Ma eria Medica.
With all these quallflcailons, our departed
friend was endo wea with many others not less
c Jculated to endear bim to our memory and
heighten the poignancy of our grief at our
loss: Guted by nature with a peculiarly re?
fined taste, and not less refined sentiment, the
essential elements of his character, though,
ever mindful of the obligations upon him by
the dulles of the Godlike science of-whlch he
was a faithiul minister, this could not bar him
from occasional excursions Into the beautiful
and flowery fields of polite and general litera?
ture-the charms of poetry, the wide realm of
belles lettres, the attractions of eloquence. In?
ehort, ail the fascinations of mental aesthetics
?o congenial with the Inh?rents of his inborn
nature, Intensified, however, and refined by
that high mental culture to which through lite
he was instinctively Impelled.
Professor Dickson was by nature an orator.
His refined and beauteous perceptions, bis
chaste and cultivated taste, the soft, sweet
melody of his voice, the charms ot his elocu?
tion, and the dignity and grace ot his action,
formed an assemblage In his inward being
where they bad tht-ir origin-which, when
brought to bear, never failed to produce a tell?
ing influence. These gifts, with whlcn he was
so richly endowed, ever made him the charm
and paragon ot the social circle.
But in addition io these attractions In the
character of our lamented friend and associ?
ate, lt still remains to speak o? bim from a
aobler Btand-point-as a prolessor and teacher
of our divine scleuce, tue duties of which, and
the application of the principles thence de?
rived to the relief of human suffering and the
preservation of human life, it has been truly
said, give s to man next Importance to i tia: of
the Gods. In this department Dr. Dickson
was pre-eminently successful. His profes?
sional erudition, the charms of his elocution,
the grace and dignity ot his manner, with the
general suavity of his deportment, all con
enjjred to threw ? genial attraction around the
-dull and dry details and technicalities of med?
ical Science. The thousands of young men
sow spread over almost every State in the
Union who have passed under the attractive
Influence of bis instructions, fl rsi io the med?
ical college of his native State-the field of
bis early labors, and un honorable monument
teared by himself and ti is able and philanthrop?
ic colleagues; Mib.-equently lu the New York
University, and finally in tue JefiVr.-on Med?
ical College of Philadelphia-will not fail to
remember how he riveted their a tendon to
the difficult details of medical science, and
embued them with a charm by bis eloquence,
before unseen, and inspired his audience with j
a zeal and love of the profession which in af?
ter life never forsook them. He was, more?
over, an able and beautiful writer, aud it can j
be well conceived, lrom th*-foregoing remarks, I
that the numerous contributions ol his pen to i
the stores of science and polite literature all I
bore the Impress, In boih purity ot style and
substance, ot a refined and cultivated taste, the
ripe scholar, and accomplished rhetorician.
His work on the prac ice of medicine Is well
known, and met with a merited success
among his numerous pupils. Dr. Dickson
also made numerous aud valuable contribu?
tions to the periodical literature of the coun?
try, both scientific and general, and as a com?
plement to these ott-times successfully courted
Such was the man whose melancholy death
we have assembled hfta to deplore; Buch the
associate and irteud; beloved by all while liv?
ing, lamented now tba' death bas taken him
from us. but still fondly cherished in the re?
cesses of -memory, where the recollection ot
his great genius, ?his spotless virtues, bis
feulai affections, his manliold services and his
rllllant achievements will ever sit enshrined.
4 Our departed iriendand associate was bene?
ficently vochsafed a long and saccesslul career;
but the final summons came, when, he passe
"Like one who draws the drapery of his couch
About him, acd Iles down to pleasant dreams."
"At 1 it ls ead when onethns linked departs !
When Death, that mighty severer of true heart
sweeps through the balls BO lately loud wi
And leaves pale Sorrow weeping by the hearth.
"But, all must die !" And when the severin
pang of death overtakes us, and one by on
we are snatched away, lt neet and beconc
lug on the part of those who are still permll
ted to remain, while (hey bemoan, in hearl
felt sympathy, the loss of the good and th
virtuous who have been rom from them for
ever, to hold up, as an example to the living
the bright deeds, the steadfast virtues, tb
spotless purity, and the noble achievement
ot those who nave passed from Hie to death
Resolved, therefore. That in the recent deal!
of Professor Samuel Henry Diofcson, our asso
elate, our colleague, and long-endearei
friend, this society and our professional bretti
ren at large have sustained a loss which the;
deplore with deep and heartfelt grief.
Resolved, That by this afflictive dlspensatioi
the science of medicine has been deprived o
one of ber most honorable votaries, the coliegi
in which he recently served with such diettn
guisbed success n most estimable colleague
society a relined and cultivated ornament
and humanity of one who ever felt for th?
afflicted, and practiced a wide-spread benevo
lenee in bis efforts to mitigate the affliction:
and sorrows of mankind.
The resolutions were seconded by Dr. Wm
T. Wragg in the following remarks:
Mr. President-I second the resolutions of?
fered by Professor Geddings, and if I cannot
as he can, speak of the deceased as a contem?
porary, I am at least not so far his Junior ac
not to be able to refer to him as one I knevi
well and esteemed highly. My acquaintance
with Dr. Dickson dates from the year 1828,
when I heard from bis- lips the first words ol
instruction I ever received in the lecture
room, on the subjects which were to engross
so much of our time -and attention in after
years. He was then but a very young teach?
er. It was only his fourth term-so thut he
was as young in experience as be was in
years. But he stood forth already lu his new
position as strong in Intellect and as eloquent
In language as when, In the maturity of his
mind, and with fie experience of a lone life,
he sat among the experts of his profession lu
one of the oldest and best of the schools cf this
country. None ot- his pupils can ever forget
the touching pathos and eloquence with
which he delivered his prelections. His warm
Imagination and his polished words threw a
-charm into bis lectures which stirred the
hearts ot bis pupils, and, like the magnetic
spark wbich Morse has baruessed to the wires
of his telegraph, and by which he bas spurred
the slumbering world Into y out h lui and enthu?
siastic life, he made the dullest of his hearers
feel that they were engaging in a living and a
moving study. It was at this early day in the
history of the Medical College of South Caro?
lina, that, with Holbrook, wno so lately we as?
sembled In this hall to lament, and their fel?
low-adventurers in that bold enterprise, he
laid the foundations of a popularity and a
solid reputation for that school, which gave lt
a poeilion second to none in the United States,
and himself an eminence which was unsur?
passed. The crowds wbich annually assembled
at the lectures sufficiently attest the value
they placed on the diploma, and the wide
range from which the students eame showed
how far the fame of the teachers had spread.
His conversational powers were as brilliant
as bis lectures were eloquent. This extraordi?
nary endowment gathered around him the
br?chtest minds, and his bouse was the report
of all who valued wit and sentiment. With
spirits congenial to his own, such as the late
Mrs. Holbrook, at ihe hospitable mansion of
Belmont, the conversation was Invested with
a charm that a Coleridge or a Savigne might
have envied but not surpassed. As a writer,
Dr. Dickson was exceedingly versatile. His
most Important production was a work on the
practice of medicine, which was an elabora?
tion of tbe lectures he delivered before bis
classes on that subject. It has received Just
commendation-for its merits as a work of
science and tor the accuracy and finish ot Its
style as a literary production. His contribu?
tions on kindred subjects to the Journals of
the day were numerous, and always in keep?
ing wlih the elevated tone and polish of bis
larger efforts. Medicine and its cogent sub?
jects, however, were not the only ones which
occupied bis thoughts and his pen. There
were occasions when be would charm bis hear?
ers with essays and poetto effusions, many of
which will live among the graver of bis pro?
ductions. Many here to-day will remember
the "Conversation Club" which, in the better
days of our Charleston society, 'gathered, on
staled evenings, the best talkers among us.
The gentle Gilman, the philosophic Moultrie,
the grave King, the versatile Simons, and,
among those anil living, many a wit and
scholar, the peer of any or all of these. It was
here, perhaps, that Dickson specially shone.
Here lt was that those charming essays on
Life, Sleep, Death, ?fcc, afterwards published
at the urgent request of his lrlends, first found
the wrapped listener. And here, too, and In
the "Medical Club," some of his sweet poetic
effusions had bin h.
often public occasions of general Interest he
On contributed his valuable aid. - Before
tbe institute of our own Slate, the Historical
Society ol Georgia and tbe Phi-Beta-Kappa
Society, he delivered addresses, which, as
literary and oratorical efforts, elicited the ad?
miration ot the whole country. In i hese ad?
dresses there was always some new and strik?
ing views of his subject-views wbich from
their very novelty sometimes challenged
varied criticism, lt was In one of these ora?
tions that he, for the flrsi time in this country,
ventured to claim for young women the
clerkships In retail stores which employ so
many able-bodied young men who might be
more profitably engaged In productive occu?
pation, thuB leaving open a large and honor?
able field ot employment for the females. It
bas been mentioned In one of the recent
notices of Dr. Dickson that he advocated
me temperance cause In one of these ad?
dresses. If by this lt was lnteuded to assert
that he was what was popularly termed a tee?
totaler, lt does him injustice. Ko man was
less carried away by popular isms than be.
Like St. Paul, he.was temperate In all things,
and while sounding his trumpet-notes of de?
nunciation against the abuse of alcohol, he
was ever ready to uphold its Judicious and
moderate employment. His mind was emi?
nently eelecuc, and be eschewed extremes of
I have Incidentally mentioned that Dickson
was a poer.. Some beautiful Bongs and lyrics
from nm pen still live, amoug them the
sweet apostrophe to his dearly loved South,
called the-'Cv press and the Pine." And the
poetlo turn of tils mind was larther shown in
the selection of some of bis most intimate
friends from among the gifted poets of our
country; among them Bryant, Simms and
Longfellow. And though not a painter or
musician, few men were more enthusiastic
in their enjoyment ol these refining aits.
This ls not the place, Mr. President, to
enter Into an analysis of the writings or
of the genius ot our late distinguisher! fel?
low-member. Doubtless, these will receive
due attention from others better qualified
to do them justice. Let me only say, here,
tbat so far os I nm able to t-stlmate the
Bcope and tura of his mind, it was more a
philosophical than an experimental one.
Thoroughly.luformed on all the subjects that
engaged hts atteniloo, and familiar with ihe
literature referring to them, his imaginative
and (lt I may so say) picturesque mind could
Invest them, in his descripiiuus, with al the
Illustrations which a well stocked memory
mlgnt supply. But there was no Invention,
no new doctrines In ethics, no new theories in
medicine. He was familiar with what had
been Bald and done, and was skilful in colla?
ting, comparing, combining and contrasting
the labors of his predece>sors-In dl-sectlug
and shilling and winnowing the work of his
contemporaries, but it caa hardly be said that
he added anything to lb.? t-tore of facts. He
was metaphysical rather than physical, and
charmed his hearers more by the new and :
pleasing way in which he presented his sub?
jects than by any contributions made to them.
This lt was, perhaps, that made him so suc?
cessful as a teacher of youib, with whom the ?
difficulty lies more in knowing how to classity
and arrange the knowledge wnlch is offered
to them than in receiving an amount ot tads
which they are unprepared to digest and ar?
range for themselves. Ia this Dr. Dickson
waa eminently successful. By placing old
things and dry facts In new lights and pleas?
ing carba, be was able to pour into the young .
mind an amount ot information not generally i
communicated from the professor's clair. i
Shall I say anything, Kr. President, c
Dickson's loss as a citizen ? It is not necei
sary. That will come from other sources. ]
is enough for us to record his merits as
fellow-member of our profession, and to en
balm bis memory as a loved and lost associ?t
of our ancient society. And yet lt ls bardi
possible, when speaking of him, to forget th
amenities of hts dally intercourse with us a
co-laborers In the practice of our common prc
fesslon. I believe, Mr. President, I may say
without any exaggeration, that within m;
knowledge of the profession, now runnlnl
over lony years of intimate association will
lt, no single individual exerted a more whole
some and harmonizing influence than he did
Firm and clear in his opinions, and ready u
maintain them by any and all honorable means
tie was yet gentle and forbearing to the ver;
rerge of compliance. Such being his mihi
?nce, and such the harmonizing power of thl
Influence, It was perhaps a providential dis
sensation that he should have been succeeder,
in his chair of practice, when be left us to g<
to his last field of labor, by one, in many re
?pects, his compeer la the salient points o
tils character. In the removal of Dickson
und the death ot Gaillard, our beloved ant
honored profession sustained crashing blows
Let us hope, with the hope that never abandom
the good and brave, that better times may ye
;ome, and the memories of Gaillard, Frost,
Moultrie, Holbrook and Dickson purify oui
professional atmosph?re of all the mists anc
damps that mildew or rust lt.
Dr. R. A. Kinloch followed In a few feeling
ind appropriate remarks. He said:
Afr. President--Jt may perhaps be consider
?d supererogation In my offering any remarki
liter the vory full and pertinent discourses ol
ny learned colleagues who have preceded. 1
rise, Bli', however, under the stimulus of tbe
>ccarJOn, having come here lo be a passive
spectator sim pl y. a nd to lend my presence alone
is evidence of ihe high respect I entertained
for the memory of the deceased. I feel com?
pelled now to do mere, and claim the great
privilege of dropping my tear and ofTerlnsr my
Aurel wreath at the grave of a loved and re?
jected colleague. Though disparity In years
would have Brevented an Intimacy on'my part
ivllh the deceased, and though my life cannot
>e said to have been wi'b his, as can b~> claim
;d by those ol'my brethren who have spoken,
: can. nevertheless, say that from my earliest
Motessionat life I appreciated his talents,
ind learned to feel for bim not only re
peet, but love. I looked up io him as
me or the most envied of. the profession
lonored as he was for his wisdom, and
oven for his virtues. And now, slr, In fanclea
lew of bis bier, I feel that lt Is a proud privi
ege to claim him for the Carolina that I love.
Ie was Indeed a noble representative of Caro
loa medicine and of Carolina gentlemen. I
lave often felt that as a profession lt was for
ii nate for us to have such a representative at
hat renowned city where culminates as at a
?entre the glory and the perfection of medical
dence. Tnere baa long been tbecen're of
Dedical education, and there was our Dickson,
i flt exponent of medical learning. Who of us
hat could not appreciate this facr, and who of
ts that did not feel more than satisfied that so
acred a (rust was In his keeping. Bur, sir, If
honored our colleague for his learning and
tis talents, I loved bim and looked up to him
s the fit exponent ot the honor or the ethics
f the profest-ion. He is gone ! His was a
30g and arduous struggle tor life; his, now, a
icb victory in death. - We mourn his loss, but
re feel confluent in his eternal gain.
Professor Charles Upbam Shepard gave a
rief outline of the life and the principal labors
. his honored contemporary, saying:
I have listened with a sad Interest to the
rell-merited euloglums pronounced upon our
imeated lriend. Dr. Dickson. Without pro
OBlng to reiterate the able judgments passed
pon unscientific and professional career, I
?rill briefly touch a few points In his character
hat have not been so fully brought out.
Having been honored for a considerable
teriod by an association with him as an in?
ductor in the institution be largely helped
0 lound, and to whose prosperity he still
nore largely contributed, I may say that no
Bacher I have ever known surpassed him In
eal and conscientiousness. His Instructions
rere always accompanied, too, by an elevated
?oral tone and dignity, and what ls deserving
f equal praise, me example of his dally life
ecu nd ed every precept be inculcated. For
iinate were the numerous youth trained un
er his instructions, and I am persuaded hie
tifluence for good will outlast the generation
fiat now BO deeply deplores his loss.
As a general scholar ke achieved a rare rep?
tation, when we remember the amount of
rofesslonal teaching and medical practice be
erformed. His career as a student at Yale
lollege won for him considerable distinction,
[ls name very early attracted wide attention
mong the alumni of tbat institution, and the
ddress he waa invited to deliver before ibe
nlverslty about thirty years ago, at meir
ontial festival, was listened to with the
?reatest enthusiasm and respect. That the
ons of Yale accorded to bim a flattering pre?
eminence is farther evinced by an apprecia?
te notice of his death In the College Journal
>f tbe last week, which contains the following
emarks: "As an author be attained a world
ride reputation, his greatest work being
Elements of Medicine, pnbll.-hed In 1855.
Ie also contributed largely to many mirella
leous and medical periodicals." The Pulla
elpbla Press says ol him, "as a phyeiclan, a
scturer, and as an author Professor Dickson
.eld a piace accorded to lew men lo hold, and
a his death, not only Philadelphia, his home,
r the United States, bis country, but the
rorld, of which his learning had made bim a
osmopollte citizen, suffers a great, If not
Before concluding, I must be allowed to ex
irees my personal grief for Dr. Dickson as the
onstant friend of lue best portion ot my life,
lur acquaintance began In the letter he ad
iressed me In 1834, lu behalf of his colleagues,
?.riling me to share in the Instruction of Ihe
ledlcai College, and I have been Indebted to
im for many years of the most agreeable and
inproving Intercourse. And here I must add
hat, in my opinion, Dr. Dickson was un
qualled for tbe strong magnetism of his social
haracter. To known him was to admire him.
'here was a charm in bis discourse and cheer
il manner, and most of all In his heart good
ess, that can never be forgotten. And
hough nearly a score of years have glided
way since our last meeting, my recollections
f him are delightful y Indelible. A letter of
riendt-hip with which he had honored me was
ecelvea In February, at a time when the
tate ot my health prevented its acknowledg
aent. I was daily intending a reply to his
fords of kindness, when the ead shock of his
leath reached me, leaving me as my only r??
ponse the wreath of ibis leeble tri ?ute to his
ron h now mournfully cast upon iris bier.
Dr. F. Peyre Porche, concluded with the
olio wing graceful tribute :
1 beg leave to be allowed. Mr. Chairman, In
hs Imperfect way, to give my cordial and
learty assent to tbe resolutions which bave
leen offered, and which express the sorrow
ve J/el upou the announcement of the death
if OUT distinguished fellow-clilzen. Having
0 often, as a student, been charmed whilst
Isienlng to the eloquent and Instructive worda
vbich fell from his dps; and afterwards, whilst
iiteudlog his lectures on the practice ol'
ihyslc, In order lo recapitulate them to lils
:las.-ea. I cannot refrain from stating here the
Ldmlration wbich I entertained for the gene
ou.*, chivalric and kindly spirit ol' our accutn
ill.-hed professional brother, who honored me
vit h hi." fi lr nd-li i p.
With ail his learning, and his many and va?
led attainments, I believe that the principal
?harm of lils character sprang from his good
ie-8 ol' heart. The soul of honor, always
ipirited and energetic, and possessing both
,he suauifer tn modo and the forliter in re to
1 hiiih degree, he could never say a harsh
Fvord that would give pain to any one. Much
)l his time, as we ail know, was occupied in
jerformidg deeds of kindness and in benefit
ng others; and lhere was no man who could
lo such acts with more grace and delicacy.
Ie had noue of that envy and prejudice which
?vould prevent bim from commending and
rncouraglngany, ic mattered nut how youth
ul or near to htm they were. If they were
yortby of his esteem and deserved his praise,
ro young men, iherefore, he was especially
\ind aud con-lderat-; and lhere are thou
lauds throughout the length and breadth ol
:he land who have heard of the event which
?Bemoles us together w'th pain, not unmlng
led with many pleasant memories.
Professor Dickson was so excellent a type
af a reflned and elegant gentleman that we
were willing to permit him to leave us for a
time, that he might represent and reflect cre?
dit and honor upon us la two ot tbe largest
md moat enlightened cities of this continent,
to each of which he was called on account of
his eminent abilities as a teacher. As a med?
cal author, whilst we may cr may not agree
with him in all his views with regard to (he
pathology and treatment ot disease, yet my
own experience has taught me that his de?
scriptions of special maladies are singularly
true to nature, and I know no works which
contain more accurate and felicitously ex?
pressed histories of disease than those wblch
he drew from life.
The resolutions were then unanimously
adopted, and the meeting adjourned.
THE STEAMBOAT HORROR.
Further Details of thc Explosion of tbe
Oren nm-Tue Po.nie-s i ricken Passen?
gers Between TWO Element?-Ghn stly
Scene? and Tragic Incidents.
ST. LODIS, April 12.
Additional particulars of the explosion of
the boiler on the steamer Oceanus, near Cairo,
yesterday morning, show that lt was one of I
the most terrible disasters that has occurred
on the Mississippi for many years. The most
reliable accounts put the number killed at be?
tween sixty and seventy, and In most cases
the bodies will never be recovered. The de?
tails of the disaster are horrible lu the ex?
LATER_The Belle, of St. Louis, arrived
with twenty-eight survivors and seven bodlei
of persons who died during the passage. The
books and papers ot the Oceanus* were lost,
and a list of the persons lost cannot, there?
fore, be obtained. Juleo. Constable and bis
wife, of Noye's circus, are missing. The dead
on the boat presentee a horrible appearance,
their bodies being swollen, and many of the
bodies were the .color of raw beef, the skin
having been entirely scalded off. Those not
otherwise'designated are not injure.!. The
engineer said he wen: on his watch but a few
moments before the explosion and tried five
gauges, In all ot which he found plenty of i
water. He then walked back to get a cup of j
coffee, and In five minutes ihe explosion occur?
red. Robert Chew, one of the proprietors of '
the Atlantic Circus, saved himself by means of
a plank. He thinks thu Geo. Constable and his
wile, circus performers from California, and
Frank Slate and Frani Williams, also circus
men, were drowned.
George Keltbly, the first engineer, who was
on watch when tbe explosion occurred, says
the boat had Just struck the bar. Her engines
had been stopped, and he glanced at his watch
to note the time, whet the explosion occurred
with terrible force One of che boilers was
alown back to tbe cylinders, and tbe whole for?
ward part of the beac. Including the pilot?
house and forward fart ol ihe staterooms,
(vere scattered right ind left. The boat took
Ire instantly, and tbe startled and half nude
passengers, who were not killed, awoke lo the
terrible reality. But one boat was left, and
hat was badly broken. The officers did all i
.bey could to assist the passengers. Captain
Beader and his clerk, Henry M. Worsnam,
gathered together the life-preservers that were
eft lo the back part of the cabin and disiribu
;ed them to the half-dlstracced passengers.
There were bat two females on board, Mrs.
Constable and a chambermaid named Wallace.
A Tugboat Blown l p,
NEW YORK, April 12.
The tugboat Davenport, which exploded last
(vening, near Jersey city, had "lour canal

THE KU-KLTJX CASES.
A DIRECT ISSUE AT LAST BEFORE THE
The Question of Jurisdiction Of the
United States Circa It Court-Abie Ar?
gument by Hon. Henry Stanbery..
[SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THZ KKW?.]
WASHINGTON, D. C., April 12.
Tbe argument IQ tbe case of T. Jefferson
Greer on motion for a writ ot habeas corpus
to the marshal o? South Carolina, was com?
menced in the Supreme Court to-day by
Hon. Henry Stanbery for petitioner, and con
continued by Solicitor-General Bristow and
Attorney-General Williams for the govern?
ment. Mr. Stanbery claimed that the United
States Circuit Court has no jurisdiction over
in j of the offences charged, becauee, if such
luriedlcllon is vested in any court of tbe
United States, it belongs only to the district
:ourt, and cited Section 8 of the enforcement
?ct giving the construction to be put thereon.
Se denied that lt gives a grant of Jurisdiction
co the two courts concurrently to cover
the same offences of which Jurisdiction ls
riven to the District Court by the first grant.
Se argued that Jurisdiction given separately
o the District Conrt ls expressly made exclu?
dive of all Slate Jurisdiction, whilst the con
jurrent jurisdiction ts not declared to be ex
:lu8lve of State courts. He maintained that a
careful examination of other sections of tn*
tame act cleared up all doubt, and made ii
nani ?est that the offences to which concurrent
urlsdiction attaches are easily distinguish?
able from those to which separate jurisdiction
ipplles, and that the offences charged In this
ndlctment do not fall under concurrent juris
iictlon. Concerning Jurisdiction over the
iffence of murder, he held that it must be ?
ihown that these Indictments charge an
>fiVnce provided for in the sixth sec
ion, for the offence of murder can
?ot attach to any other offences tban such
ts are provided for. The five conspiracy off?
ences obarged In the first five indictments 1
ire conspiracies against the right to vote, and 1
t must be shown, before Jurisdiction over the 1
uurder counts attaches, that the sixth section I
loes provide for conspiracy against that right. '
.'he right ls no where mentioned in that sec- ?
ion. Concerning the unconstitutionality of 1
he act referred to under the authority of the
llteenth constitutional amendment, he de- 1
aonstrated that that amendment contained
io grant of power to the United States, or to I
be BtateB over the right of suffrage, 1
mt ls In the nature of a restriction
ir abridgment of such power In one
espect only, the power to discriminate uon ac
ount of race, celor or previous condition of
ervitude," and that lt ls only to enlorce that
ectlon and prevent such discrimination that >
Congress ls authorized to enact appropriate
egl8latlon. That, even giving the largest
lossible latitude to Congressional discretion
a the matter of the choice as to what ls ap- i
iropriate legislation, there are obvious Um'.
allons upon Its exercise, and that to carry out '
me granted power it is not allowed to usurp '
uother power not granted.
Hon. Bevedy Johnson will close the argu

which afforded bim instant relief. On the morn?

with the Expectorant the disease was entirely
