THE LEGISLATURE.-Very little of
public interest transpired in tho Le?
gislature yesterday. In the Senate,
the consideration of the bill "to re?
enact certain Acts leuding the name
and credit of the State to tho Green?
ville and Columbia Railroad Compa?
ny, and to validate the Acts of said
Company thereunder," was post?
poned for three weeks.
Corbin gave notice of a bill "to
regulate the manner of settling and
determining obligations contracted in
Confederate onrrency," which is un?
derstood to provide that all debts
contracted during the war, for which
notes were given, shall be settled on
the basis of the ruling rate of gold
at the time.
The report of the Committee on
Public Buildings, adverso to fitting
np the State House for the use of the
General Assembly, was adopted.
The session of the House was con?
sumed chiefly in debating the bill
proposing to create the County of

Counties. The vote will bo taken
this morning under the operation of
the previous question, and will proba?

Grund Democratic Ratification Meet?
ing in Washington City.
Tho grund ratification meeting
held in front of tho City Hall, on
Saturday evening, the 18th instant,
for tho purpose of endorsing and
ratifying tho nominations of Horatio
Seymour, of New York, and Gen.
Frank P. Blair, of Missouri, as the
Democratic candidates for the Presi?
dency aud Vice-Presidency of the
United States, was ono of the most
successful and perfect demonstrations
ever wituessed in Washington City.
The arrangements for this grand
meeting were nil perfected at two
days' notice, and for the short time
given in which to prepare it is really
wonderful that such a completo and
successful gathering of the Demo?
cracy of the District could havo been
arranged. Early in the evening, the
citizens of Washington, in large
numbers, commenced to assemble at
designated points in tho several
wards in which they reside, and by
half past 7 o'clock all were ready to
join in one or the other of the two
grand processions Arranged to move
simultaneously from points in the
Eastern and Western sections of the
Looking from the front of the main
platform, the scene preseuted was,
indeed, impressive. On every side
rockets were flying, blue lights burn?
ing. Cnnuons thundered, and, as
far as tho eye ?could reach, East and
West, and for a long distance down
Four and-a-half street, was collected
a tremendous audience of white men.
And a noticeable fact of the meeting,
on that occasion, was the very large
number of citizens present who have,
heretofore, taken no interest in the
political questions of the day. Now
they were assembled to testify, by
their voices and their presence, the
spirit which is being manifested all
over tho country, namely, that the
great mass of the people havo be?
come tired of being made tho tools
of designing radicals, and aro alive
to the fact that to the success of the
Democratic party they must look for
the restoration of peaco and happi?
ness to our beloved country. It was
estimated, by competent judges,
that there wore at least 8,000 persons
present, and this vast audience paid
respectful attention to the able
speakers who addressed them, for
Able addresses were delivored by
Senator Doolittle, Gen. Thomas Ew?
ing. Jr., of Kansas; Mr. Niblnck, of
Indiana; Hon. J. M. Cavanaugh, of
Montana; Gen. Blair, of Kansas;
Hon. A. C. Eldridge, of Wisconsin;
Judge S. F. Rice, of Alabama, and
others. Letters and telegrams were
read from Hon. S. J. Tilden, of New
York; Hon. Joel Parker, of New
Jersey; Gov. English, and others.
The immense crowd in front of the
main platform being so large that it
was impossible for all to hear the
speakers, it was decided, early in tho
evening, to invite speakers to occupy
)he stands arranged on the steps of
the two wings of the City Hall. The
steps on tho Eastern wiug wore
laced in charge of several well
nown German citizens; and, under
their supervision, a large moetingof
Germans was called to order by Dr.
Fred. Sohmidt. _ .

Th? Flood tu Baltimore.
Wo find tho following particulars
of tho flood in Baltimore, in tho Ga*
zelte, ol Saturday morning:
Tho heaviest and most destructive
flood ever known, in the annals of
tin? city, took place yesterday, not
even excepting the great flood of
1887. On Wednesday. night last, a
very severe' rain and thunder storm
occurred and considerably increased
the volume of water in the streams
around the city. Yesterday morn?
ing, at an early hour, the rain com?
menced to fall and gradually increas?
ed in violence until between the
hours of 8 and9 o'clock A. M., when
it fell in torrents and was accompa?
nied by considerable thunder and
lightning. About 12 o'clock M., the
water in Jones' Falls commenced tc
overflow, and in a very short timt
the whole of the lower portion of th?
city was covered in many places tc
the depth of from eight to twelv<
feet The submerged portion o
West Baltimore extended from Lom
bard street, in South Baltimore
along Harrison to Baltimore street
Holliday street was covered as far a
Fayette, and on South and Oalver
streets the water reached Lexington
Along Calvert the water extended t
Pleasant street, and in North beyon
Beyond Centre street, only a smal
portion of the ground bordering o
the falls was submerged, extendin
to the Eager street bridge. The poi
tion of East Baltimore which wi
covered was comparatively smal
Tho whole of the bridges, from tb
Eager stroet bridge to the bridge ov<
Baltimore street, wero carried awa
by the water. Eager street bridg?
however, remained standing; but s
great was the force of water nt thi
I point, that it wu? thought to be in
very unsafe condition, although qui
a substantial stone structure. Fro
thence to Charles street the overflc
was slight. Above the Charles stre
bridge a considerable extent
ground was covered, and the brid)
was swept oway. The whole exte
of the stream was filled with all kin
of debris, presenting everywhere
frightful spectacle. All availat
points of observation throughout t
city were lined with spectators, ai
many affecting incidents wero note
The total losses caused by this mc
disastrous occurrenco must bo i
meuse; but at this time no certr
estimate can bo given.
The suddenness of the overfl
was, for some time, a mastery in t
city, as, although the fall of rain v
excessive, it would by no mee
accouut for it. Tho cause of tl
however, we have since learned to
as follows: About seven miles ab(
the city, the line of the North?
Central Railway passes by Li
Roland. At this point, an arm
tho lake extends for some distal
East of tho road, connecting w
the main portion by a large cnlv
passing under the road-bed. WI
tho storm was at its height,
water in this arm was observ?e
rise with great rapidity, covering
the grounds around its side, and
culvert was evidently either
small to carry off the great volt
or was obstructed from some a
dental cause. About 12 m.,
water commenced to run over
hank of the road-way, forcing in
lines of rails towards Lake Roi?
forming of them a regularly indi
lino towards the lake, aud then ei
tying, with a fall of somo twe
feet, into the lake itself. This a
sion, once commenced, increi
faster and faster, and, so great
the volumo of water emptied
Lake Roland, that tho water of
lake was elevated uutil it was fo
o>er the main dam to a heigl
From thence this extraordi
volumo of water passed on to
city, carrying away all obstacle
its progress; and, doubtless, can
tho sudden overflow and its d
trous cou8equeuces herein recor
All tho bridges between tho lake
the city aro stated to have been
ried away. Above the lake se
small bridges were carried away,
three of them were at one timo \
seen iloatiug in tho lake, with
quantities of fence rails, trees
other articles brought down bj
flood. Tho damage in this secti
very great, and tho crops of oati
corn aro totally ruined wherovei
wuter could roach them.
Heavy damages to property ai
ported to havo occurred on al
roads leading to tho city, and se
losses will bo inflicted upon the !
ers. From Ellicott City wo ha^
ports of a still more disastrous
actor, comprehending not only
loss of property, but also of life
The damage to the Northern
tral Road is Haid to be very entei
and all trains will be stoppe
some days to come. The trail
the Philadelphia and on the A
ington Branch of the Baitimor?
Ohio Road came in regular!
time, and no damage was rep?
There is HO news from the main
of the Baltimore and Ohio 1
Weat of Ellicott'a Mills, as thc

Tho destruction of life and
perty at Ellicott City also exe

destruotivejgfreshets which na
various times, ocourred there.

CONGRESS AND THE RECONSTRUCT
STATES.-The Southern Represen
tives who havo just been sworn
are not at all confident of their
ture, and feel that the edifice of
construction is a mero house of car
which the President may kick o
in any freak of ill-humor. The
foro, they desire that Congress sho
not adjourn, but only tako a rec?
that it may at any moment come
tho defence of the structure. I
haps their apprehensions of trou
are not mere bugbears. Here are
these States, for instance, erect
civil governments and sending mi
hers to Congress, nine-tenths of
members being Northern squatt
who went down a short period bel
the election. This reconstruction
therefore, somewhat superfich
takes no deep hold upon tho lift
the people; and these refuse, \
more or less intensity, to recog?
it. So far it has been kept in p
by tho military; but now, in onie
bo consistent with the fiction 1
covers this reconstruction, the r
tary is withdrawn and tho civil
voruments are left to the power
is supposed to have made the
that is, the people. Supposo tl
should bo a sudden demonstratio
tho hostility of tho people, and
bran new Governments shoulc
sent flying, in the persons of all
men who made them; and sup
Andrew Johnson, acting on his
that these new Governments are
real, have no true authority and
mere usurpations, should regard
as all right? From the Congressi
point of view, there would be a
rebellion, and -there would b
power to suppress it, for the P
dent, whose duty it is to call ou
militia or assemble Congress in e
genoies, would do neither,
would be a most astonishing rest
the three years' labor at recono
tion ; but this seems to be the gie
view that the carpet-bag men
take of their future*. Congress s
to per?oive tho possibility of th:
suit, and so will likely only ta
