BEER MEN IN COUNCIL.
It IU'Kolves on the NuuJccfN or Individual
'Liberty and the KtglilH og
Detroit, May 18. At the meeting of
tho brewers yesterday morning the attendance
wns light. Tho report of tho Committee
on Pioolutions wns adopted as follows:
" Resolved, That tho founders of thoso
States and their perpetual, indestructible
union, while they created State and Federal
Governments for tho proper and prudent
dispatch of publio business, wcro
careful to guard that personal freedom of
tho citizens, which object all well-organized
communities preserve j that tho only
limit thoy placed to the action of an individual
wits where it invnded tho rights of any of
his peers; thnt wliilo it is the duty of tho
Stato to forbid offenses against property and
person, and punish infractions of tho laws,
any or all attempts to prcscribo dress, food,
or drink, or regulate privato mnnners, nt
tho arbitrary will of tho majority, or make
men moral by tho mnudate of tho Legislature,
are not only futilo themselves, but
mischievous in thoir consequences and
leading to tyranny on ono side and contempt
of the law on tho other, thnt they aro
beyond tho scopo of tho power of any, government
established by tho peoplo.
" Resolved, That tho propriety of tho
raanufneturo of malt liquors, n drink food
recognized ns healthful and needful by instincts
of tho human raco and habits of
temperate men,thc consumption of which for
centuries has been continuous and
with tho growth of prosperity,
progress, nud the most civilized
enlightmcnt of the people, h,is passed beyond
honest, intelligent controversy, and
is only denied bj idiots and fanatics; that
we. ns brewers, have tho samo rights,
neither more nor less, a? nny body of men
cngn;cd in a necessary, beneficial industry,
and that wo shall peaceably and
firmly under tho law and by lawful
means defend those rights, and in that
defense wo confidently ask tho aid and cooperation
of all honest citizens in tho
maintenance of good order, the preservation
of tho rights of property and the
freedom of person, and in tho free enjoyment
of any innocent pleasure which does
not infringe upon the rights of others.
" Resolved, That in the future, as in tho
past, wo shall not assumo to inllucnco or
avert legislation by corrupt, degraded
mothods, nor shall we bog or buy justice;
and. relying upon the merits of our ciubo,
shall submit tho question of sumptuary
laws to the calm determination of the
people; that wo know of no code of political
ethics which forces us to sit in
tamo inaction wliilo our rights as
citizens aro invnded nnd our property
confiscated ; and, therefore, when any
political pnrty, professing a dovotion to a
policy of administration for the benefit of
nil, shall be for tho support of a band of
zealots by supporting a law dictating to
iron their food .and drink, and degrading
them by placing thoir privato conduct
under control of others, we shall sovor tho
necustoined political tics, and actively
a'd earnestly support whatever
party may sustain equitable government
and personal freedom, and wo
call upon all thoso in our craft
not nlrcndy nffilintcd to join with us, form
local associations in connection with ours,
and aid us in the dissemination of official
facts and legitimate arguments, so that tho
rent mass, of people, who have no selfish
intcrest'to serve on the ono side,nor fanatical
impiilso on the other, may decide this controversy
under tho light of impartial judgment
and cool, common sense.
Then followed resolutions urging
'ss to lower the tax on beer and bottles.
Approprlntlons were recommended to test
tho case from Kansas, and to aid the Maryland
brewers in their contest.
A Wild Girl or the Mountains.
Philadelphia, May 18. On the northern
slope of South Mountain, in Mill Creek
Township, Lebanon county, lives a family,
among whom is a girl resembling a wild
woman, and who is kept more like a beast
than a human being. The family consists
of but three persons, tho father, a son, and
the girl in question. They occupy an old
log hut, which is nearly ready to tumble
down. Tho girl's mother died when sho
was a child, and tho poor creature hns had
no one to train her. Her mind has always
been weak, and sho was neglected entirely
in every way. Sho has not been inside a
in all her llfo; sho cannot read
nor write. She is very Bhy of strangers.
When sho sees a person approaching her
sho disappears in the bushes and rooks on
the mountain. In the spring, it is said, her
father compols her to go out on the hill with
a Hock of turkeys, which she has so
trained that they follow her through tho
thiokots and woods from morning until
night. Kind neighbors have several times
attempted to catoh the girl, when sho was
out with the turkoys, but all to no purpose.
She runs at the sight of a person and disappears,
with the fowls at hor heels.
Wheat bread, tho neighbors say, is unknown
to tho creaturo; that her principal
diet was corn-dodgers, and a sort of pasto
made of dried rye floor. Her father generally
acts in the capacity of cook and
baker. Hor dress consists of old rags,
which are tied about her body. Some
time ago one of the neighbors took compassion
on her, and mado a now calico
dross, which is probably the only one the
girl has worn for sevoral years. Head-wear
and shoes are unknown to her in
her rambles through the rough woods and
mountains, Sho has long auburn hair,
whioh she wears hanging down oven her
shoulders. Tho household affairs of tho
wrotchod family aro said to bo very
Erimltivo, thoro bolng but ono bed in tho
ouso. Stories of a most outragcoi character
havo been oiroulated about this family.
It is Btated by good authority that a
numbor of citizens will call tho attention
of tho propor officials to this family and
haYo the matter remedied.

Urldo AinoiiK tlic.Drouncd The Nlilfi
nnd Cargo a Total Loss.
IlARTroRD, Conn., May 18. The steamer
Granite Stato, of the Hartford Transportation
Company, caught fire at 2 o'clock this
morning below Uoodspeld Landing, thirty
miles below Hartford. Tho firo started in
tho forward pnrt of tho boat nnd spread
with fearful rapidity. , '
The boat headed for tho dock under full
fBtcnm, and tho engineer stuck to his post
though nearly burned to death. The
passenger list included about twenty-five
por&ons. There was wild confusion in the
scramble for life. Tho ferryboat at the
dock pushed nlongsido tho binning vessel
nnd most tho pnssengcrs were sved.
Five peoplo were lost, ns follows : Mrs.
C. L. Maine, of Now Hnven, on her bridnl
trip, jumped into tho water with her husband
nnd was drowned. Her hmband wns
saved by grasping a paddlo wheel. The
second cook, colored, named Jackson, is
burned to denth. A young German, name
unknown, was drowned.
A fleshy man, namo unknown, is missing
and several moro can not be found. The
books were nil destroyed nnd no list of the
passengers wns preserved. As the firo rnged
tho boat drifted away from tho dock three-quarters
of a mile to Toad's Island. It was
burned below wnter's edge, nnd is a total
loss. The vessel had n full cargo and
cloven horses, nino of which were burned,
among them a very valuable pnecr.
There were nlso many barrels of kerosene
on board, which added fuel to tho
flnmes. Seventy-five of these bnrrcls were
thrownJoNcrboa.id. The firo rnged so terrifically
that tho crew and passengois
bnrcly had time to save themselves. Tho
officers acted splendidly, and doubtless
prevented a panic.
Tho Granite State was built in 1853, nnd
wns considered tho best sea boat on tho
Sound. Sho has always run in the Hertford
Line. Sho was insured for $10,000,
and valued at $00.000.
THE WARRANTS READY.
Nherldnn nnd Walsh In Hourly Expectation

New York, May 18. A Washington
pcoial to-day says: Two months ago
Minister "West Bent a noto to the Stato Department,
asking for Sheridan's arrest on
tho charge of complicity in the Phoenix
Park assassinations. The warrant was
issued and Bent to tho British Minister.
He hold this wnrrant for some time, awaiting
the arrival of proof of tho charges, so
that the arrest of Sheridan could bo had
and extradition ordered if proof was
doemed sufficient. This "timo has now
nrrlved. Sheridan, Walsh and Tynan
have been indicted, and tho State Department
is in daily expectation of a demand
for wnrrants for the arrest of the
last two mentioned. Minister West said
to-day ho had notified the Consuls to keep
a sharp look-out for Tynan, and to cause
his arrest tho moment they hnd discoveied
his whereabouts. Ho will be ariestcd on
on a United States Commissioner's warrant,
which can bo done without any
dcuinnd being mnde on tho State Department.
Ho said also he would not ask for tho arrest
of Walsh until ho hnd tho evidence
against him. Yesterday Minister West
forwarded tho warrant for Sheridan's n -rest
to the British Consul in New Yo.k
with directions to havo it served tho moment
the evidence against him arrives
from Kuglnnd. This evidence hns now
and hence tho pending arrest ot
Sheridan. No l'uit'ier steps tire likely 10
be taken at the State Department until
after the examination of Sheridan by the
United States Commissioner in New York.
He will forward his report to Wahington,

Ity Which a City I.ohch Sluht of Hall
Philadelphia, May 18. Since tho last
meeting of tho Sinking Fund Commissioners,
a month sinco, when a settlement was
made in the sale by tho city of 30,870
shares of stock of the North Pennsylvania
Railread Company to a syndlcato comprising
President Comly, of tho North Pennsylvania
rond, Edward C. Knight and other
wealthy capitalists, the discovery has been
rondo that about nine or ten years ago, before
tho salo had been consummated, a
Btock dividend was declared by which tho
city was entitled to about 3,000 additional
shares. This stock tho city nover rccolved
until within tho past fortnight, when the
North Pennsylvania Company voluntarily
returned it to the City Treasurer, and it
now stands to tho credit of tho Sinking
Fund. Just how suoh a valuable dividend
could havo been overlooked for so long a
period is a complete mystery, so far as
the Sinking Fund Commissioners aro concerned.
Tho value of stock, quoting it at yesterday's
price, is $201,000. In addition,
to this will bo added nino or ton years'
dividends, (which - will incrcaso tho
total amount involvod to nearly a quarter
of a million dollars. It is authoritatively
stated that, had tho railroad comprny not

Pini.AiiEi.PiUA, May 18. Sir Philip
Haughten Clarke, of London, England, has
arrived in this city from Florida. He is
tho representative of English capitalists
who purchased a largo quantity of land
from tho Disston Company, and his visit to
America has been in connection with other
purchases by a new English land company
Sir Philip arrived in this country in March
and ho has sinco been in Florida examining
lands. Ho says:
I had been in Florida last year, but this
time I mado a very extended trip. I went
to St. Augustine, I examined tho land in
thnt vicinity, then to Snnford, Kissimmco
City, through tho canal of tho Okeechobee
Company and over Lake Cypress to
Kissimmco Lake. Returning to Jacksonville,
1 went to tho Cedar Keys and took a
steamer to Punta Rossa, and up tho
rivor to Fort Myers and Fort
Thompson Falls, nnd through the canals of
tho Okccchobco Company to Lako Okeechobee.
I havo thus seen tho greater portion
of Florida and personally examined
What were your impressions?
My impression is that tho wholo lower
portion of tho Stato can bo used to raiso
sugar cano when tho canals aro fully constructed.
Tho canals hnve so far reduced
tho waters in tho lakes beyond expectation,
and tho feasibility of tho drninago
scheme is beyond question. I think when
all tho proposed canals aro constructed,
Lakes Flirt and Bonnet will cease to exist.
What is tho nature and quality of the
Noarly all of pure vcgetablo mold, with
here and thero a sort of sandy marl running
in veins. Tho wholo country is
of growing tho pineapple, bannna,
sapadilla, guava. all
sorts of grapes and tropicnl fruits.
Tho chief uso to which thoso lands
will bo put will bo tho raising of sugar,
and I think that all the sugar needed in
this country will bo raised in Florida
within a very fow years. When I return
to London I shall organizo a largo company
for tho purpose of buying these lands!!
and cultivating Biigar. I shall also purchase
fivo or uix thousand acres of land
and go into the tho business,
which is quito profitable, and can be mado
moro so by improving tho breed.
What aro Florida's prospects ?
Tho Okeechobee Company is energetically
draining tho low lands, and opening
communication throughout tho whole lower
patr of tho Stato. This year there will bo
two steamers running from Kissimmco
City to Punta Rossa, through Lake Okeechobee.
The canals which will bo constructed
will be sufficient to reclaim at
least 600,000 acres of sugar land.
Ihere is a good deal of interest in these
lands in England ?
There has been for several years, and
still is, a great interest in Florida lands in
London. There are now in London five or
six schemes which involve a capital of
nearly a million sterling, and other largo
operations, such as a steamship company
and a ship canal, aro projected.
A HORRIBLE TRAGEDY.

of a horrible affair which took place
recently at Rio Grande Del Sur, near to

that the virus had not entered tho

the ceremony wns postponed for
three months, whim the medical men,
who were consulted on tho case, gave it as
their unanimous opinion that there was
not the slightest giound for apprehending
any danger from the bite. The mairingo

with the customary festivities. After the
nuptial supper was over, tho bridegroom
appeared to be soized with a fit of
One of love's caprices, said
After supper came the ball, nud
when this wus ns its height, tho newly
wedded couplo withdrew from the festive
icone, nnd retired to their apartment.
About an hour afterwards tho huiiso
resounded with ferocious cries intermingled
with shrieks and groans. As
soon as tho guests had recovered from
itupefaction, they marled in tho direction
of the cries. Thoy proceeded from
the nuptial chamber. Tho door was
burst open, and a horriblo spectacle presented
itself. On tho lloor lay tho young
bride in a pool of blood. Sho still bro.tthcd,
but hor body was torn and bitten as if sho
had been seized by a tiger. In u corner
if tho room was tho bridegroom, covered
with blood and foaming at the mouth,
scratching, biting and tearing away at tho
wall and furniture. With a sudden bound

A Horrible Murder of III Friend by
Baltimore, Md., May 18. Ono of the
most horriblo murdors over committed in
this Stnto occurred Thursday about two
miles from Ellloott City, the county seat of
Howard county, Edward Hanson was tiio
murderer, and Charles R. Whito was
his viotim. Hanson has recently
shown somo evidence of insanity
Ilia spooial hallucination was that
ho had sworn by tho bedsido of his
dying mother to rovongo her death and that
of his sister. Ho soldom roferred to any
of theso things, howovor, and fow pooplo
know that he was not ontirely sano.
Mr. Whito, who was an aged man of
sixty yoars, drovo from his farm to that of
Hanson. Ilanso nwas not in the houso at
tho timot and Mjpj.Whito went in .and, sat
down. Ma started In lpnvp. nnii Viml t,.'o
renched the ground when Hnnson came" $J
uiuuuu uie corner oi me nousc, almost
completely out of bieath, as if lie had been
running at full speed, nnd carrying in ono
hand a revolver and in the other a hupo
butcher-knife. Without a word of warnhig
lie began firing nt Mr. Whito and shot lilm
once in the leg, n second time in the face
and a third time through tho .hoad, the
bullot crashing through his brain
nnd killing him instantly. Not satisfied
with this tho infuriated manino
rushed upon his victim nnd with the knlfn 1
cut his throat in such a manner as to nearly
sover tho head from I he body.
After committing ;ho crimo Hanson became
calm and quiet again, but shows his
Insanity in thnt ho manifests no regretjfor
tho deed, but claims that it was the will of
heaven, Tho crime is all tho moro shocking
because tho two men have always been
the best of friends and thoir families have
always been on the must intimate terms.

MORMONS IN MARYLAND
llcorKaulzntion of Saints
After n Lapse of Thirty Team.
Bel Air, Md., May 18. After a lapso off
thirty years, Hartford county hag a return
Df Mormonism, nnd a number of its citizens
iro not a littlo exercised at its reappearance.
It is thought that tho ideas of that
creed havo been working in that section of
the community for several years? but tho
first public meeting sinco tho revival ot?
tho doctrino took plnco yesterday thrco
weeks ago. Tho second publio meeting
was held on May 0. Both theso meetings
woro hold at tho house of Joseph Eckcrt, a
shoemaker and a farmer, residing near tho
Rocks of Deer Creek, on the southeast sido
of the Rooks.
Yesterday thero wns no meeting, but tho
subject wns the topic of genornl
all over that region. Tho sect is
known as tho United Brethren of tho
Latter Day Saints. At tho last meeting
between GO and 100 porsons wero present,
the males outnumbering the females 'thrco
or four to ono.
Theso Mormons bolievo in the divine institution
of tho Mormon Church by tho
prophet Joseph Smith, but repudiate tho
Church in Utah, which they hold has departed
from the truo faith in engrafting
polygamy upon the originnl Mormon doctrine.
A e.ood deal of Mispicion is, however,
eutui tallied of the movement, lest it
may cloak Polygnmist tendencies such as
it is declared were ninnilcatcd thirty years
