T WKJiTY LIVES U)ST.
New Orlkaxs, Dvceniljcr 1. Arrived:
Chan. Morgan from Cincinnati. Her offi
ceis report that at 4 o'clock this morning a
collision occurred at liringier's jxiint, op
posite Donuldsonville, U-twetn the Morgan
and the Cotton Valley of the lit-A River
Traportation Company's line. The (jit
ton Valley sank ami twenty lives were lost.
The Unit and cargo are a total loss. The
Cotton Valley left here yesterday for Red
river with a full assorted cargo and a num
ber of pi.i-vngrrs.
When the collision occurred the
wind was Mowing a gale and
rain falling in torrents, The Morgan
was ceiniug down and the Valley
going up. On rounding the point the ofli
cers of each loat, seeing tho danger of a
collision, stopped the machinery, but the
.itoig in wus so great that her guards struck
the Valley with great force, causing the
latter to sink in fifteen minutes. The Val
ley is valued at $18,000; insured for $10,
000 in New Orleans offices. The cargo is
valued at $75,000; insurance unknown.
.ol. Meyer, Daniel Oehr, Henry Levy, mer
chants of Alexandria, La., and Miss San-
ford, aged 10, 'if Loudoun county, Va.,
were the only passengers lost. The officers
think twelve or fifteen roustabouts, mostly
colored, went down with the boat and were
d row tied.

Three regiments failed to turn tho enemy's
position Saturday and retired on discover
ing his strength. One man was killed and
twelve wounded. The withdrawal of the
battery nnd camp of the remainder of the
force was rendered necessary by the accur
racy of the Afghan artillery fire. The
British will attack the pass Monday, after
the troops have had a day's rest. They are
confident of good results, although the pass
is seven thousand feet high. Fighting will
certainly be severe.

Chicaoo, December 1. The grain re
ceivers of this city held a meeting yester
day afternoon, and gave vent to their in
dignation at tho action of railroads in un
justly discriminating against Chicago. They
employed legal counsel, and propose to test
the legality of the railroad pooling arrange
ment, and to proceed against all railroad
companies of the statu by quo warranto for
tho revocation of their charters, on the
ground that they have entered into an un
just and unholy combination against the
peace and dignity of the state of Illinois;
and also against such rotid, to recover the
amount of overcharge in every car of grain
brought to tho city since the pool was
formed. This matter was left in the hands
of a committee on transportation, wiih
jHiwcr and instructions to proceed at once.

Wasiiisotos, November 30, 1878.
Senators and representatives are coming
in large numliers. Even thanksgiving does
not swm to havo kept them at home. There
is always a comparatively full house at the
beginning of the last session of 11 congress,
but from the arrivals and promises of ar
rival so far are unprecedented. The main
subject of conversation among those now
here is resumption. It is now only thirty
five days to the day fi.xeil by law for trying
the experiment. The importance of the
event, the bail result if for tiny reason the
government should fail to maintain resump
tion, and the hoped-for benefits, if it is suc
cessful, all afford good for the thought and
conversation. It may be said almost with
certainty that nothing will bo done by the
house or senate to interfere with tho secre
tary's plans. It is doubtful if any man of
any strength in either body will
proposu to interfere. Senator Voor
hees, though apprehensive of dan
ger, and at all times opposed to forced
resumption at any fixed date, will probably
not aid in any agitation which might be
hurtful to the material interests of all.
Gen. Butler, it is said, will make a speech
on the subject at an ear y day, but not with
any expectation of securing legisla
tion. He is positive that the govern
ment will be unable to sustain itself. So
are other members now here, but tho num
ber is not large. There will be a meeting
of business men at New Orleans on Decern
b'T 3rd, next, to consider measures for the
improvement of navigation on the Missis
sippi river nnd its tributaries, the building
of the Texas Pacific R. R., and the exten
tioii of our commerco with South America,
M. xico and the West Indies. In tho first
two of these projects, tho south is vitally in
terested, and from the first one the whole
vast regions known as the west, north west
and south-west, havo much to gain. The
than any other region whose waters find
their way to the sea through one channel,
but it is rapidly becoming the great
grain producing country of the world. The
Mississippi, with proper levees nnd other
artificial aids, would be a cheap channel for
sending this vast amount of products to a
market. Of the Texas Pacific I have al
ready written. The south is practically
"solid" for that great work, and seems to
have a just "claim" on the government for
the slight aid required to make it a success.
Of the other subject for discussion I have
only space to say that, while the Mexican,
South American and West Indian ports are
geographically nearer to us than other peo
ple, we are almost strangers to their great
and rapidly increasing commerce. Tho
meeting at New Orleans if it succeeds
in awakening general interest in
these important subjects, will do much good.
The Post repeats the story that Mr. Pot
ter's committee will extend its investigation
to the "cipher dispatches," and will have
before it not only those lately published in
the N. Y. Tribune but many Republican
dispatches, It is said that Gen'l Butler is
the present custodian of all tho latter that
have been preserved. Senntor Morton is
popularly supposed to have destroyed tho
most damaging of the Republican dis
patches. Suit of the Lee heirs at Alexandria for
possession of the Arlington estate goes over
until the January term of court. This ease
excites great interest not only among tho
people generally, but in the legal profession
among the peoplo because of tho eclubrity
of Colonel, afterwards General Lee, and
because of the fact that tens of thousands of
Federal soldiers are buried on the estate,
ami among lawyers because of questions to
be raised which have not been raised in any
Tho cost of public school instruction is
licing discussed in Boston with an evident
feeling that much money may lie saved
without injury to tho clndren. Many of
the best friends of the schools censuro the
extravagant outlays in buildings, holding
that tho influence of needlessly palatial
buildings is bad on tho pupils. They
assert that there may bo a judicious reduc
tion In salaries and they favor a great cur
tailment of the custom of giving text hooks
to tho children. When the friends of pub
lic instruction begin to complain in Boston
it is about time for careful peoplo to con
sider tho matter of economy in school
management. A reaction against public
schools would work great injury iu this
country. Times Journal.

A moot horrible und brutal outrage was
committed at Detroit Saturday uvnning.

Deautitul lady, niece of Jtnlgi, Lyman Coch
nine of tho Superior Court of that city,
ot whose family sho was an inmate. Tlie
young lady had been spending the evening
at the house of a friend on Congress street,
one of the most aristocratic and frequently
traveled lhorotihfures in Detroit, nnd
about 0 o'clock started for home. An isri.rt
was offered her, but owing to the cnrlv
hour nnd the number of people on tli'n
streets, she declined, thinking she could
reach her home without Iwing nioh.Ht-.!
She had gone but the length of half a block
liowever, when a man with n masked face
came suddenly behind her, threw a heavy
shawl anmnd her head, seized u.r ju
anus, nnd hore her into the yard of the De
troit Locomotive Works, some dihtnncc away
on another street. There ho was beyond
detection, and although the nor jrirl strug

Editor Cairo Bulletin:
You may not think it worthy of the sptu-e
it will occupy ; but such of your readers us

you for giving the following suggestion a
Fill a pipe in the usual way, and before
it is smoked out the tobacco becomes damp
from the presence of nicotine, drawn from,
the heated tobacco aliovc; and the smoke
becomes strong, nauseating and unhealthy.
To prevent this, put a pinch of tobacco in
your pipe, light if, then fill up the pipe. Dy
blowing outward occasionally, the fire will
burn upward, prevent the accumulation of
of dampness ami nicotine, and give cut
pure, fresh, good smoke from first to last.
There is no other sensible, clearly way of
smoking the tobacco pipe. If you don't
believe it, try it. Fipe Smokkk.
