Terrible Steamboat Disaster.
TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY LIVES
St. Louis, Oct. 28.--Tho details
of-the loss of the steamer Stone
wall state that the vessel left St.
Louis on Tuesday evening bound
for New Orleans heavily laden
with passengers, horses, mules,
hay and other freight. The boat
was burned to the water's edge.
An effort was made to land, but
the boat was so he'avily laden that
she could not reach nearer than
1Q0 yards of the shore.
The greatest confusion and ter
ror prevailed. There was about
200 cabin and deck passengers on
board, a large number of whom
were women and children. The
flames spread rapidly, and seores
of men jumped into the water,
and attempted swimming ashore,
nearly all of whom' were lest.
The pilot, engineer, striker, car
penter, and 44 pass~gers are
-known to ha'e been saved.
Trhe captain, clerks and 'other
officers, .and many passengers
were lost. All the books and pa
pers were lost, as were all the
cattle- and other freight. Many
persons died after reaching the'
shore from exposure.. All the
women and clildren were lost,
nearly, if not all of them, being
burned to death.
The conduct of the passengers
and the qfficers is said to have
been most heroic. Such an ap
palling scene has not been wit
nessed on the Mississippi river-for
many years. The saved were
kindly cared for by the officers
-of the Belle Memphis, and were
ctrried to St. Louis.
An interview with the assistant
engineer of the Stonewa'll gives
the following information: The
Slarm was given at 6:30 P. MI., and
in ten minutes the boat was in a
sheet of flame, and every person,
had deserted her; all that were
lost were drowned, and none were
Ilurned;of 11 women on board but
3 were saved. There was but one
yawl seen, and that was taken
possession of by some deck pas
sengers. The last seen of Capt.
Scott he was seen floating down
the stream on a log. The people
at Neeley's saw the light and
hastened to render assistance.

a skiff, and had it not been for

Another statement is that the
fire originated from a candlel

contests that has perhaps evei

this country, the fight was ended
to-day in Andy Johnson's defeat.
lhis result was iulooked for by
the public at large, as the vote of
yesterday seemed to be decidedly
in favor of Johnson's ultimate tri
umph. The opposition, at last
fully alive to the situation, held
caucuses at the City Hotel last
night, where the various candi
dates were present. After qTite
a long consultation, a decision
was arriVed ato cqucentrate up
on Judge.H,.,per, the Republim

and vote solid for Cooper. The
latter, who is a State Senator, was
probably the strongest man they
codld have selected, as he was,
sure to draw off two of Jolaon's
friends in the Senate, one of them
being Edmund Cooper, (tremen-,
dous Cooper,) the newly--elected
Senator's brother. The new move
ment was kept profoundly secret
until this morning, when vigdrous
measures were put in. operatiow
to stiffen the wavering, and pre
sent such a trout as would defeat
Johnson on the first ballot. WVhen
the convention was called to or
der, Senator Bryant, who had
hitherto supported Johnson, arose,
and in a little speech nominated
Cooper. He received a majority
of four in the Senate. In the
House the vote was .a tie, each re
ei ving forty-one ,votes.
The result of the ballot was re

The defeat of -J6ohnson is con

the peculiar relation of parties- in
Tennessee at the- present titme.
Among the Conservatives there is
a progressive, tolerant and liberal
element, where the principal ex
ponents.are the N.ashville-Banner
and the -Memphis Avalanche.
Johnson represented the retro
gressive and proscriptive spirit of
Tennessee politics, and wished to
mold the party accordingly. His
election, it was contended, would
have been a triumph of Bourbon

TImE CAPITAL REMIOVAL.-The
project of removing the capital
out WVest would seem to have
more strength than Washingtoni
aus believe. The Western mnemn
bers are pretty well united on the
subject, and in its favor.
It is very likely that a trial of
strength between the removers
and anti-removers will conme up
at the ~:t session of Cmongress.
An appropriation of $3,500,000 is
to be asked for to put up a new
building for the State and War
D)epartments, and Western men
are determined, it is said, to fight
the 1proposition at every stage:
The Western men assert that
every additional dollar expended
on Federal works in T~Vashington
will be made an argument against
removing the capital, and they
are determined to furnish no more
arguments on that side.
BenI. Butler said to night that
sensible men would govern them
selves as to holding or selling out
prolperty here by the test vote on
the al)propriation bill for the new
WTar and State Departments.
Important Decision--Yerger to be
Our telegraphic column con
tains the important announce
nment from Washington that the
Supreme Court of the United
States yestertlay rendered a
lengthy judgement in the habeas
corpuds case of Yerger. The Court
decides that its jurisdiction in
such cases is derived from the
Constitution and the Judiciary
act of 1789, and is not, as conten
ded by the Attorney General, con
fined to cases where the parties
impisoned are detained by corn
Kmitmlents issuinig faom inferior

be taken to Washington, unless

Jackson. In habeas corpus cases
the body of the petitioner, if he de
mands it, must be carried by his
jailor before the court issuing the
writ. There can be no doubt now
that Yer~gr will either be reman
ded to the civil courts of Missis

further delay. The military corm
nitment under which he is held

illegal. So ends one of the

What Yerger will now do re
mains to be seen. He has an
action for damages against every
one engaged in detaining him;,
antl it is debatable whether he has
not been in jeoparidy of his.life,
in the legal sense, so as to form a
plea in bar to a trial before a civil
court. Can it be said he has not
been in peril? The case is only
imnportant to the public because
it is a test case, and one which
will form a landmark in the histo
ry of America ju'risprudence.
We by no means justify the act
of Mr. Yerger which bisought
about his imprisonmnent and this
decision by the Supreme Court.

Gen. Canby's Report on the Virginia
Soon after the Virginia election
Gen. Canby instituted investiga
tions in the different" counties of
the State where it was complain
ed that the election was not con
dluctel faiirly, for the purpose of
ascertaining whether fraud had
been committed or intimidation
uised. The work was assigned
to what is known - as the , dis
trict commnanders, and they
were furnished with a form of
questions 'to be put to parties
lraking" complaints. The district
conmihainders met at the county
seats of those counties where the
allhgetl frauds were committed,
aind heard testimony on both
si~lies, after which they reported to
G-en. Canby. In this way n"early'
every complaint hais been inves
tigatedl and it is understood Geu.
Cainby will embody the whole
matter in a report to the President
through the Secretary of Tar.
This report will probably be trans
mitted to Congress for its infor
mation. Military ofHeers, wlho
have been engaged in this duty
say Canby's report will show that
the election was one of the fairest
ever held, and that there was less
fraud and fewer attempts at in
timnidatiou than is common at al
most every election in the North
ern States. The cjhrges of fraud
were preferred chietfly l by the
VWells men or Radicals; but when
put upon oath and closely ques
tioned they were unable to sub
stantiate them. As the only hope
of the Radicals in having thd elec
tion set aside by Congress and the
State kept out was their ability to
prove immense frauds and intinm
i(lation it is thought that the
report of Gen. Canby will com
pletely defeat their scheme.
