Till senseless commander of the
pan'.i ai.ip of war that captured the
Virginias and murdered a rurge portion
of fcer erw, is the source of a great

-work is that r.nglanu has order a large
fleet of war Testis iuto Cuban waters,
to give s'.reagtn t her demands, a

BOSTON and Philadelphia held large
tea parties last week in commemora
tioa of the resistance to the British
tea tax by throwing cargoes of it into
ath sea at Boston one hundred years
ago. Tbey were also intended as a
movement in aid of the Centennial Ex
hibition. There seems to be a cord of
sympathy that unites the two cities just
named on the tea question. It has been
transmitted from the days of the revo
lution. Philadelphia was tbe first in
open town meetings to condemn the tax
n tea and other articles without repre
sentation, and the probability is that
had the tea ships happened into Phila
delphia instead of Boston, Philadelphia
would be entitled to the honor of hav
iug thrown it into the sea.
Tni Cnban and Virginias question
las, by late despatches, assumed a new
phrase. Well informed people never
even suspected her of being a lawful
American vessel. They were well con
vinced in their own winds that ber
American character was only assumed
for protecticn in the event of just the
kind of difficulties which she reached.
President Grant thus far baa acted
anttous'y on the questitn, and evi
dently doe not intend that a parcel of
outlaws shall plunge the country into a
war. The latest turn in the case is that
the "right of the Virginius to carry the
American flag has beau put in ques
tion.' Tbe President submitted the
qnastion to the Attorney General, who,
after reviewing all the facts, and evi
der.ee bearing on tbe ease, says :
"Assuming the question to be what
appears to sou form to the interest of
tbe protoocl at the time cf ber capture
bad no right a against the United
States to carry the Asserican flag, I aaa
f the rpiuinn that she bad no such
right because sbe had net been regis
tered according to law ; but J am aha
of the cpinxon that she teas as much er-
rmpi from intetfrrtnet on tht hxsh sens
y ar.Uher pover, on thai ground, as
tkn.gi she hid been Uv fully registered.
" J-'jaiL Las no deubt a right to cap
ture a vessel with an American register
and earrjirg the American flag, found
in Lar own waters, agisting or endea
voring to assist, tbe insurrection in
t uba ; lut the has no right to eaptnre
ancb a veisel on the high teas upon an
appraheiaiou that, in violation f neu
trality ir the navigation la we of tbe
United States ate was en ber way to
assist the said rebellion.
Ssain may defend ber territory and
people from ike hostile attack of what
la f r appears to be an American vessel;
but she Las no jurisdiction whatever
over tLe question at to whether such
vessel is on the high Bess in violation of
any laws of tbe Uuitcd States.
Spain caaoot rightfully raise that
question as to the Virginius, bat the
United States may, and si I under
stand the protocol tbry bave agreed
to do and be governed by that
agreement, and without admitting
that Spain would otherwise bave any
interest in the question, I deoide that
the Viiginiua at the time of ber cap
ture was without right aad improperly

Saturday's Eiropean mailt brought

read with great interest.
"November 22, 2 A. M., latitude 46.

S. 8. W., true. Ship biaced up on
port tack, beading by standard com
pass N. W. by W., or V. 4 N. true.
A steamer's masthead was seen from
one to two points on port bow ; oatside
light out and burning brightly. Short
ly after we saw the steamer's three
lights ; she war coming straight fur us.
Alnio.-t immediately she showed only
her p3rt and masthead lights and wa
steering apparently to pass under oir
stern. After a short time we rang out
bell md ported tbe helm, as we thought
she wis coming too near the steamer
still showing only her poit light. When
close to the bow the steamer's helm was
starboard and sbe was across uur bow.
A collision was rendered inevitable
The ordur was given to back our after
yards, but before the bracea conld be
let go tbe two vessels came in collision,
tbe Locb Earn striking the steamer
amidships. 1 he ships immediately sep
arated. We threw our afteryards aback;
half the crew then shortened sail, and
the remainder cleared away the port
litebnst. The carpenter, being at tbe
pumps, reported that the ship was ma
king no water, and then went forward
and found tbe ho sprit gone and how
smashrf completely in, but the colli
sion bulkhead was apparently uninjur
ed. A boat from the Ville du Havre
then came alongside, containing an offi
cer and four sutn. 1 asked if the
ateamer was much injured. He said
she was injured, but did not say she
wauted assistance. Aa no signals of
distress wers made by the steamar, 1
thought at the time thai the brut was
sent to rentier as assistance, but while
talking to tbe officer I saw the slsaa.ar
apparently settling down, and lowered
tbe pott life boat at once in charge of a
second officer and four men, who made
towards tbe sinking ship. Oar cutter
and starboard iifaaoat were then cleared
away, and in a few initiates dispatched
to the scene of tbe catastrophe, their
only gnida being the cries of the brown
ing people, tbe steamar having disap
peared. We kept our boats out till
daylight, until every one floating among
the wreck was picked up. We suc
ceeded in saving eighty-four persons
ont of three hundred and six,- a large
proportion having gone down with the
steamer. Tbe Ville) du Havre only

said after she ha tbtin classified :
Moo's women were like tbeoloudsof
our northern climate the brighter they
were the colder they became, and wbile
they glittered they chilled. Such wo
men were recognised as charming in
society and in the ball room formed the
center of many admirers. But they
lived alone for self, and tbe quality of
their mtods grew daily more feminine.
Tbey bartered their gifts for the glit
tering jewels of fame. But " women's
women" these were of tbe painstaking
and laborious kind. Tbey were domes
tio women ; tbey loved the sewing ma

without ruffling their tempers ; and
when tbey met one another they conld
talk about their dresses, and tell bow

A most horrible outrage occurred
near Camp Supply, abent sixty miles
'roni Fort Dodge, one day last week,
that, for brutality and cruelty, has not
been equalled since tbe dsys of Craw
ford and the early Indian troubles. Tbe
perpetrators of tbe fiendish act were
fviowas, wbo, for some time past, bave
been causing considerable trouble in
and wroend their reservation
From A. G. Hanback, ronte agent on
the Atchison, Topeka and Sauta Fe
road, we gathered the following nartie
ulars of tbe crime : It seems that a
party of English tourists arrived at
amp Scpply a few days ago for the
purpose of engaging in a buffalo bent.
At t amp Supply they purchased a com
plete outfit necessary to carry on tbe
hunt for several days and bired a wagon
and lean., with a boy about seventeen
years old as a driver. After being out
several days their provisions gave out
and they dispatched the boy back to
tbe town for another supply, expecting
he would ensily make tbs trip in three
or four days at furthest, the distance
being abont thirty miles. The allotted
time pasd and a day longer, and the
hunters becoming uneasy at his extend
e J absence, started back for Camp Sup
ply. Here nothing bad betn seen or
heard cf him since the departure of
the party. A party ot hunters and
scouts were immediately organized and
set out in search of him, taking the
trial toward the hnntirg grounds. The
second day out th?y auddeoly came
npon th boy. He had been cap.torjd
by a band of Kiowas, tbe wsgon takes
apart and piled in a heap, tbe boy tied
to a stake, and probably burned alive.
He had also been scalped by the brutal
cowards, and his charred remains left
on the ground with all the proof of how
the devilish act bad been committed.
Tbe borees, of course, were stolen.
The ezciiement in and around Fort
Dodge ia intense, and the eld hunters
and trapper in that vicinity aay that if
the Government does not inflict sum

Col. Bristol, in command at the fcrt,
says be has tbe Fifth Infantry and two
companies of cavalry in readme!, and
is only aw-iting orders from the VVar
Department. Tbe Kiowaj have only
about 2,000 warriors on their reserva
tion. The following is the latest story ont
on walking at night in a sleep : Abont
two o'clock yesterday morning, tayi
the Providence Journal of December
5th, as officer Augustus R. Taliman
was on his way home, after his seven
hours' beat, be heard tbe cry "Police 1"
"Murder !" borne on the night air in a
woman's voice. The cfiiser followed
the sounj as rapidly as he could, which
led him to the foot of Henderson street.
Slopping here he still heard the cries
of a woman in distress somewhere out
in the mud flats, but he could see no
thing in the intense darkness. He
aonnded bis whistle as a signal for help
in case be should need it, hastily took
off his clothes, with the exception of
bis shirt and hat, rolled them in a bun
dle and laid them on shore, and rolling
bis shirt up under his arms, he boldly
plunged into tbe mud and darkness.
Guided by tbe sound only, which
were growing fainter, and occasionally
shouting as an encouraf ement to who
ever might be there, the officer gallant
ly kept on his way, the mud growing
deeper and deeper, and stickisr and
stickier, till he found himself ia up to
bis waist, bis progress at the same time
growing more difficult and dangerous,
at times causing him to fear bia own
life was in danger. After wading a long
distance be reached a womao'a bead
and arms lying on tbe flats, her body
Doing entirely submerged in tbe mud.
He didn't stop to ask questions then,
but cheering ber aa well as he could,
he infused new life into her by his pres
ence, and getting her out of the depths,
the two started shoreward. The return
was at first even more hazardous thao
bad bco bis trip out there, for now he
bad two to look after, but as tbe mud
grew more shallow ber courage grew
stronger and their progress easier, and
in due course of time both arrived on

Nebraska, for Ellsworth, Kansas, with
one wagon, drawn by two mules, Lloyd
and Sayers mounted on Ponies. On
Wednesday night ef last week they en
camped in a ravine near Solomons ri?er.
where tbe snow hurricane struck them.
They tried to reach timber, but tbe
trail was lost iu tbe drifting saow, and
they went into camp beneath a rocky
bluff. An attempt was made to kindle
a fire with dry weed and willows, but
the wind was too fierce, and tbe party
wrapped up in their blankets, Isaving
tbs mules and ponies to shift for them
selves. Toward midnight tbe storm
increased, the wagon cover was blown
away and the men found thessselve
freezing. They arose, propped op the
wagon bed as shelter from th pelting

They crouched around the fire, but it
was impossible to keep warm without
