THE MISSISSIPPI DISASTER.
THE MISSISSIPPI DISASTER. Sinking of the Steamer Nick Wall-
Loss of Over a Hundred Lives.
Memphis, Dec. 23 One of the pas
sengers of the Nick Wall gives the fol
lowing details of the accident to that
boat, on Sunday night, that resulted in
the death of over one hundred passen
gers : The Wall struck the snag at 10: 30
on the night named, and sank in less
than 40 minutes in ten feet of water,
rjer hurricane roof falling in, from the
immense weight thereon, made prison
of her cabin passengers, thereby
preventing their escape. Mr. Monti
Hnetler, the passenger mentioned,
states that, at the time named, eight or
ten cabin passengers were sitting about
a stove, when they felt the shock. He
then ran out the front door of the cab
in, and was about to return when the
cabin roof caved in, dashing barrels,
wagons, plows, and other articles into
the cabin, where everybody had rushed
who could get oufof their staterooms.
Mr. Huetler's statement js as follows:
Was thrown against the smoke-stack on
the starboard side, as she wa3 then tall
ins: on the larboard side: was twice
pulled back by the hair and a third at
tempt was made; some one caught me
by the feet in the struggle to save them
selves, and pulled my shoes off; finally
managed to gain the hurricane deck,
and there saw no earthly chance of ear
cape, as the roof was by this time!
crowded, everyone seeking something
on which to float; the boat was by this
time under water, nothing remaining
out but the hurricane roof and the pilot
house; the wreck was still floating down
the river, we did not know what mo
ment she would sink; women were
screaming for their husbands and
children for their ' parents. Just
as we thought all hopes past we saw the
lights ot a boat coming up the river,
and every one that could shouted for as
sistance; James Vandervoorst, assis
tant pilot, lit a piece of paper in the
- pilot house and showed it as a signal
of distress. In about fifteen minutes a
friendly boat floated alongside and
made fast to the wreck, when staging
was thrown out, and all that were able
got on board the Seminola After the
.Seminole came alongside, Vandervoost
and Richard DilL porter of the ill-fated
steamer, cut through the hurricane
roof and found Mrs. Poe, the Captain's
wue, wedged among a. lot of barrels,
ooxes, and other freight bhe was
brought into the cabin of the Seminole,
and, after great exertions, showed
signs of life, and is now doing well
the dead were then brought in, and the
scene beggars description. . There were
how many were wounded. Mr. Taylor,
from some part of Missouri, who was
rooming-with me, is among the dead.
He retired about five minutes before
the accident happened. A gentleman
with his wife, daughter and son-in-law,
the last two named only married a few
days, are among the dead ; they intend
ed to get oil' about one mile below. The
wreck of the Wall lies aground about
lour miles below Wortnton s .Point,
where she struck. The number of
lives lost by this terrible acci
dent cannot be accurately ascertained,
sixty or more deck passengers went on
. board at this place. Several of these,
n the midst of the. terror of the scene,
leaped overboard, and were drowned.
Many were taken out of the water by
life-boats of the Seminole. Passengers
say that the Seminole, Captain Mont
gomery, came up to the wreck and
touched it so lightrand gently that there
was not the slightest perceptible shock.
Then her life-boats almost immediately
surrounded the Nick WalL Captain
.Montgomery not only exhibited cool
ness and skill, but his kindness and
generositv were boundless.
The steamer Pargoud passed the
wreck of the Nick Wall about two
hours after she was wrecked, and the
captain, officers and crew tendered the
unfortunate people taken from the Wall
every possible kindness. . Those going
aown the nver were taken by the irar-
gona vo their destination.

In extricating Mrs. Poe, an axe had
to be used to cut through the hurricane
root She was struck with the axe, but
not serious' v wounded.
Wm. Taylor, of St Louis, was lost,
and being recovered from his state
room, $1,200 in gold was found on him.
Seventy emigrants and twenty cabin
passengers boarded the Nick Wall here.
She had on board 250 souls, all of
whom were lost except those named
above. The disaster is the most appall
ing that has occurred since the explo
sion of the Sultana, in 18G5.
Among the lost ore a bridal party
that got on here.
Loss of Over a Hundred Lives. The Fighting Outside Paris-Horrible
Appearance of the Battle-field.
The dreadful aspect of the battle
field outside Paris, after the great sor
tie, is thus described by a correspon
dent qf the London Times :
" There is a park just at the extreme
end of the village Villiers, on the Paris
side. Before and all around it raged
the battle on both days the 30th of
November and the 2d of December. Th e
chateau is officers' quarters. How it
Buffered 1 There is scarcely a window
sash left in one side of it, and to ap
proach it there is no necessity to make
use of the entrance gate. The wall is
smashed in a dozen places from top to
bottom. I entered near the gate and
the first sight I saw was ten dead Sax
ons in a row. Their faces were covered,
and three of their comrades watched
over them. Passing through the
park in the direction of Paris,
I walked out through an embra
sure in the wall and came upon rising
ground. It was one of the hottest
parts of the battle-field, and almost the
center of the scene of fighting. Heavens,
what a sight? To see the men advanc
ing under firo of the forts, and falling
at every step; to see the French and
the Saxons amid that horrid din of ar
tillery shootine one another down with
Chassepot and needle-gun; to hear the
'hurrahs' followed by a vollev. and as
the smoke cleared away to find the lines
thinned and living men advancing over
the prostrate bodies of dead and dvinsr
was horrible, but nothing like so hor
rible as the sight of this battle-field,
with hundreds of dead lying there in
the cold air, the sun shining on their
ghastly features and stiff forms, while
the cannon on Ayron and Nogent were
thundering with sounds which shook
the earth for miles around.
One of the first great prronps I
came npon was composed of 60 French
soldiers. A few Saxons and Wurtem-
bergers lay around them; but the Ger
mans had already removed and laid in
their last sleeping place most of their
dead. The centre of the group was
formed of a close line of 46. You
could not have placed a body between
any two. J. hey fell shoulder to shoul
der, just as they had stood to fire. By
far the greater number of them were
on their backs, with their feet to Paris
and their head to Villiers. Alas, it
was painfully evident that many of
them, and of others whom I saw subse
quently, had not died instantaneously,
but had lived probably . many hours
without a hand to lend them succor,
andin piercing snow and frost. One
poor fellow lay on his face. He had
two rifle -wounds in his back.
He had partly stripped himself,
and he died with a Land on
each bullet-hole. Several had taken
off their knapsacks and placed them un
der their heads, and so pillowed had
breathed their last breath. OUiers
clenched their water bottles in one
hand, but had been enable to remove
the cork, and died without being able
to wet their lips in their last agony.
Some, in their sufferings, had burrow
ed their faces in the thick clay on which
they lay, and turned their bloody and
eartb-staincd faces upward before thev
expired. Two I .saw who had their
arms fixed and tflfeir fists clenched, as
if, while dying, they were engaged in
a pugilistic encounter. Onlv very few
were on their sides. These had their
knapsacks under their heads. There
were men' on whose faces beamed
the smile of an infant, and
whose countenance were like hand
some wax-worK. liie - expression
oi outers was mat ci tern Die atrony.
Every feature was contorted: their
4 iimtl beaa oomulaivoly jorliod. up
untu tneir Knees bcuck into their stom
achs, and their finger and thumb nails
had been squeezed until they became
nvewxi into me pauns oi their hands.
Behind, before, and at the corners of
this line of 46 dead men were others,
Saxon and French. One had a fright
ful wound in the face. He had pulled
his hands up into his sleeves to warm
them, but his cap had fallen off. and
the blood clotted on his hair till it was
all in bloody mats. Near him was an
other who had taken a biscuit from his
knapsack and the bottle from his side,
and had partaken of a little of both.
More than one of the slain had died
with the hands clasped in prayer; and
near one I found a little plaster medal
lion of the Blessed Virgin. A portion
of the edge had been shot off it. The
Chassepots and r eedle-guns were still
in many a dead man's hand, and lying
between his arm and his body.
'Similar were the sights all over the
elateu between Villiers and Brij, and
timers ana -nampigny; and acong
tue corpses were Knapsacks, helmets.
8hakoes, bayonets, and many a letter
sealed and directed to relatives and
friends in Germany and France. Near
a cemetery, situated on the battle-field
itself, I saw between 200 and 300 dead
trench soldiers collected closely to
gether; they had been removed from
where they had fallen and collected in
that spot for buriaL All were regulars.
and a considerable portion of them
were men oi at least 25 or 30 years of
age. There were dead nearer to Paris
than any spot I visited, though the
fortifications were much too close to be
at all agreeabte, and Neuilly-sur-Marne
and Fontenay-sous-Bois- seemed to be
within a few minutes' distance on my
1 a 1 mi . . .
ngnt ana ieic x nope there were no
wounded. No armistice for the re
moval of the dead and wounded hod
been agreed to ; but both sides had
been removing them bv niirht So
late as last night some of the German
wounded were found among the dead.

scribed as having been very eccentric,
and the following is told of him: "On

tion which he had argued before the
Court of Common Pleas, consisting of
three judges at the time. Mr. Gazley
arose and with great gravity informed
the learned judges that they put him in
mind of a Taratara team. One of the
judges, not exactly understanding him,
inquired what kind of a team that was.
Mr. Gazley said it was a team much in
use in South America and was com
posed of two mules and a jackass. He
was imprisoned for contempt of court,
as the people of the district thought,
without justice, for in the excitement
attendant on his incarceration they
nominated him for Congress, and he
was triumphantly elected from the first
district of Ohio, beating Gen. Wm. H.
Harrison, who was afterward elected
President of the United States.

How a French Colonel Secured Discipline.
Some weeks bock a French Colonel
was placed at the head of a regiment
being formed in a central town ot
evers, if we have been rightly in
formed. The officers spent their time
in the cafes; the soldiers in like manner
went to the cab: rets, every one coming
into barracks when he liked, and pay
ing little attention to the beat of the
dram; as to exercise, little or nothing
was done. ?'This cannot last," said
the Colonel, and for the next day he
commanded a long drill in person; a
march occupied the afternoon. On the
succeeding day they had a long march,
and alter soup the soldiers
were cgain called to drill. Murmurs
soon broke out, and threats were utter
ed, of which the Colonel was informed ;
and on the third day, after a long and
tiresome drill, he came alone into the
barrack yard. An old soldier, who had
spoken a good deal and had drank
somewhat at the canteen, came up to
moke complaints, and in doing so em
ployed an insolent ge&tnre. The Col
onel very cooly drew a pistol from his
pocket, and blew out the man's brains ;
lie then had the rappel beaten, and
standing beside the corpse, he said:
"You are 3,000 here, and I am alone ;
you can murder me, but you will kill a
brava man who 1:3 punished a coward
and a traitor." The response was,
"Vive le Colonel ;"' aul from that mo
ment order and discipline were restored.
Disappearance of an Island.
A small island is missing. Captain
l'lock, of the bark Adolphe, Itoun
from Iiiuiqui to London, 6tates that
while passing the New Hebrides Isl
ands he discovered that Aurora Island
had entirely disappeared, and no trace
of it was to be seen on the face of the
ocean where it was before situated.
What makes this occurrence more de
plorable, says the Pall Mall Gazette, is
that Aurora was one of the most fertile
of the group of islands of which it
formed a member. It was last seen
in latitndc 152 S., longitude 168, 2o
E. It is described as having been
about thirty-six miles a length and
upwards of five miles in breadth. Any
information respecting it will be thank
fully received, and it becomes a ques
tion whether a reward should not be
offered for its recoverv. If larsre islands
take to disappearing in this fashion we
shall soon cease to congratulate our
selves on our " insular position. " There
is, however, this consolation that if
England were to disappear like Aurora
island, there would, no doubt, be
rigid investigation made into the cir
cumstances bv the rest of the world.
France would miss a useful depot for
her refugees ; Ireland would suner from
ennui with no one to abuse; and we
may be sure that, unless we had pre
viously settled the Alabama claims.
America would never rest uutil she had
fished us up again.
Mr. Fairfield, telegrapher and hun
ter of New Haven, has brought into
vogue a new and not very sportsman
like mode of. shooting squirrels.
Armed with his gun and his " climb
ers " a sort of spurs fastened securely
to the .ankles and used generally for
ascending telegraph poles he has no
need of waiting for a southerly wind
and a cloudy sky; for his gun, his
spurs, his eyes, and some Chinese fire
crackers are ail he needs, let Jove be
propitious or not. He walks about in
the woods with head erect and eagle
eye, looking for a live squirrel hole.
Having found one, he buckles on his
spurs, runs up the tree, lights a crack
er, drops it into the hole, and then
runs down again as fast as he can. Ar
rived at the ground he raises his (run.
runs bis eagle eve alonsr the barrel, and
when the powder explodes and drives
the poor frightened animal from its
nest, "crack" goes the fowling-piece
and down- tumbles the squirrel. A
more astute hunter would put nitro
glycerin at the root of the tree, get his
prey, and have a cord or two of nicely
splintered wood to kindle fires with.
A Better Toxic than Quinine.
Calisaya bark of the primest quality is a prom
inent ingredient of Plaktatios Bitters. With
it are combined the juices and extracts of a
variety of aperient, anti-billions, anti-spas
modic and anti-eeptic vegetable substances,
and these properties are conserved and render

cane ine most genial ana narraiess or an

au, i tie most important meuicai agent contain
ed in the Bitters.
In the various complaints for which quinine
ia prescribed, Plaxtatiom Bittebs may be
given with the certainty of producing all the
good effects claimed by the faculty to result
from the use of that dangerous alkaloid, with
out the fear of any subsequent evil conse
quences. The entire hannlcssness of the

SELECT WESTERN LIST
$100 Invested in Advertising in this List will Plaee Yonr
Card before 350,000 Readers Daily.
We invite attention to our new List of Fifty Daily Newspapers, which we can
recommend to advertisers as possessing advantages over any list in the West.
1st. The Newspapers comprised in lwi9 List arc published in the largest cities
in the West, and have been carefully selected with a view to give the advertiser
the widest local and general daily circulation.
2d. In their respective localities they are tbe largest and best papers pub
lished; are received, read and preserved by the intelligent portion of the people
in the different States and Territories.
3d. The combined circulation of the papers in this list places an advertise
ment before over 350,000 readers daily.
4th. As a medium for Merchants, Manufacturers, Publishers, Inventors, and
all others desirous of reaching a widely diffused class of Western readers, no
selection of papers as good as has ever been offered.
5th. The chief aim of the shrewd and judicious advertiner ia to cover the
intended ground as often, quickly and economically an possible an object which
is at once secured by advertising in this list.
Cth. A new, novel and very important feature of our plan is the selection of
(wo paticr in each o7y,(where"it is possible) one of each poiitieat creed Demo-
erotic and Republican thereby giving
political and general readers, which is an advantage never before exhibited in
any list of papers presented to the advertising public.
7th. Having secured, under special contract, a large space let a long time, to
ocenpy a prominent position in each paper in this list, we can offer the same to
advertisers at exceedingly low ratesT
The publishers' lowest figures'for a'spuee of one inch ia these papers, daily,
every other week, four tceekn, will average f 6 per paper.
RATES FOR ADVERTISING.
We will Insert In tbe annexed list of papers, n space of one Ineh, daily In run
pa per, every other week, four weeks, at the low price of One Hundred Dollars
($1IHI)r average priee of $4 per paper.
advertisement will be received fr a leaa time than fbar weeks!

Allow me to call your attention to my '
PREPARATION OF COMPOUND EX
TRACT BUCHU. The component parts
are, BUCHU Lono Leaf, CUBEBS
Mode of Preparation: Bnchu, in
vacuo. Juniper berries, by distillation,
to form a fine gin. Cubebs extracted by
displacement with spirits obtained from
Juniper BerrieajTery ; little sufrar is nsed,
and a small proiortion of spirit. Itis
more palatable than any now in use.
Buchu, as prepared by Druggists, is
of a dark color. It is a plant that emits
its fragrance; the action of a tinme de
stroys this (its active principle,) leaving
a dark and glutinous decoction. Mine
is the color of ingredients. The Bucha
in my preparation predominates. The
smallest quantity of the other ingredi
ents are added to prevent fermentation;
npon inspection it will be found not to
be a Tincture, aa made in Pharmacopeia,
nor is it a Syrup and therefore can be
nsed in cases where fever and inflamma
tion exist. In this, -you have the knowl
edge of the ingivdients and the mode of
Wopinjr that you will favor it with a
trial, and that npon inspection it will
meet with yonr approbation,
ltn a feeling of profound confidence,
I am very respectfully,
