"OUR OLD FLAG IS THERE."
PATRIOTIC DAMI'HOOLISnXE9 A9 MANIFEST
ED IN WILLIAMSPORT.
from the New York Herald.
Although congress 1ms been talking for
nearly a half a year there are yet localities
in which our national emblem is respected.
One ot these is Williamsport, Pa. A resi
dent of that city having accidentally and
without knowledge of tlio fact hoisted his
Union flag down, the Fire Department
chief saw the holy rag in its unhappy con
dition, uuu straightway called out his en
tire department. It is not exactly clear
that a fire entrino could do any
good for a disabled flag, unless it might
raise a column ot water, with a man on the
end ot it, to the scene of the accident, but
the habits which the oftlcials have of de
vising plans that no common mortal would
suspect justifies us in believing that' the
chief would have done something wonder
ful if he had been allowed time enough.
But when the fire department arrived it
could find no flames except in the patriotic
heart of its superintendent, and these were
of a kind which no true American would
care to extinguish. Then there was a
great hubbub in tho streets; the firemen
were disappointed, and so were the small
boys who had run after the engines. The
perpetrator of the IhiKitious ollencc was
suspected of disloyalty, the mayor made- a
speecli to allay the excitement, and finally
the chief gallantly threw himself in the
breach to speak figuratively aud raised
tho glorious banner right side up, beforu
firemen, boys and residents in general
would go to their homes again. It is fit
ting that this rare, exciting event should
have occurred in tho Keystone State,
whither the residents of both sections are
looking for the coming man, and it is
enough to make one shudder to think how
all the patriotic fervor would have remained
dormant had the chief given some boy ten
cents to go aloft and start tho flag aright.
DISCOVEIUES AMOXC. THE MOUNDS OP NISE
VEII TUE TOWER OF 15AREL.
Manchester Guardian Letter.
Jlr. Ilormuzd n.. Una returned to
England, naving completed his boih?
Assyrian expedition. He brings with him
a rich collection of objects which have been
acquired during the year. The results of
the last journey are of a more varied char
acter than those of any expedition which
has taken place since tho early explorations
conducted by Sir A. II. Layard. Com
mencing operations on the mounds of Nine
veh, Mr. Rassam succeeded in exploring a
site which was regarded as forbiddeu
ground. This was the mound of -Nobby
Yunns, the supposed tomb of the prophet
Jonah. In this mound ho discovered re
mains of palaces erected by Esdarhaddou
and Sennacherib. His labors on the
mounds of Nineveh have resulted in tho
recovery of a large number of inscriptions
many of extreme interest. Passing south
ward, he visited Nimroud, where he con
tinued his labors in the Temple of Venus.
This building, which he discovered in his
former expedition, was now thoroughly ex
amined, and found to bo a large open tem
ple, containing sltrmos of several deities.
There were also found a number of seats
arranged in parallel rows, forming a cen
ter aislo from tho chief alter. The plan
now recovered seems to favor the idea of
its having been a species of forum where
religious aud other councils were held. The
explorations in Assyria have discovered
many valuable monuments. Mr. Rassam
extended his operations into fields untouched
since the time of Sir A. II. Layurd's expe
dition, and he was able to carry out a series
of explorations oti the mounds of ancient
Babylon. Here his discoveries have been
most brilliant. In a mound hitherto un
touched he discovered a palace of Nebuch
adnezzar's, with rich enameled columns,
beams of Indian wood, and every indica
tion of having been a most splendid edifice.
His excavations iu the mound of the Birs
Nimroud, the site of the supposed Tower
of Babel, hii9 proved that the destruction
of 'this great edifice was due, not to light
ning or hostile attack, but to a volcanic
eruption, which had toru and shattered tho
FIE THINKS IT NOT IMPOSSIBLE TO GO OVER
NIAGARA IN SAFETY.
New York Herald.
After n trip of nearly six weeks iu the
West, Captain Boyton has returned to this
city. Yesterday a Herald reported visited
him and indulged lu an informal chat re
garding his recent trip and his futuro
movements. Tho captain no longer wears
the gold lace uniform of the French life
saving service, having sent in his resigna
tion several weeks ago. He has gained In
health and flesh considerably since hU
great Mississippi voyage nud is growing
Regarding his tour, Boyton said that
after leaving tho water at New Orleans, ho
went to Cincinnati, where he daily visitoc
tho high bluffs which overlook Porkopolk
nnd In the fresh air with good medical
treatment, he rapidly recovered ' from the

effects of the terrible strain which his sys-
A. 1. . 1 1
ieui uuu undergone.
cm too journey back Boyton stopped for
a short timo to enjoy tho beauties of Niagara
Falls. "I never saw anything so grand in
its way," said he : "but I was was watching
k witn an eye to its practicability, and I
am of the opinion that it is not impossible
to go over the falls safely. Perhaps at some"
future time I may attempt tho feat. There
is one bugbear I intend to overcome, and
that is the much-teared Whirlpool rapids.
I have been offered a largo sum to attempt
to pass them, and I certainly accept tho
oiler. It will only take alout six minutes
to go through them, and in that time I will
prove that tho current at tho foot of tho
falls are not so complex as people generally
During the evening Boyton visited Man
hattan beach, where no was introduced to
Prof. King, the aeronaut. After the two
had conversed for awhile, arrangements
were opened by which Capt. Boyton is
likely to accompany King in is attempt to
cross the Atlantic ocean iu the balloon
Pioneer. The Captain's position in the ex
pedition will bo that of navigator, aud
should tho voyagers have to drop in tho
Bea, the boat which will be hung from the
car of the aerial craft can be lowered, in
which case the Captian will take charge
and direct tho boat. Prof. King says Boy
ton is just tho man for the position, as the
water voyager's extensive knowledge of
European languages would come into play
incase of a landing in a strange country.
Boyton is much pleased at tho prospect of
tho trip. Said he: "When I get up
among the clouds I know I shall be 'all at
sea,' but should we drop it will be just tlio

I'tlca Correspondence of Philadelphia Press.
As illustrative of Mr. fVinlcliirr'a nna-ip
to lose friends, I may say that after he
made his attack on Haves. Curtis, and
others, at tho convention iu Rochester two
years ago, tlio editor of tho Democratic pa
per, Mr. Fitch, wrote a leader, respectful to
Mr. Conkling, but uot Bcrvilo in praiso of
his position! From that time forward
Conkling never spoko to him. Conkling's
daughter, who recently married a r.iilrnnI
officer at Utica, is said to have all tho impe
tuosity, perseverance aud self-will of her
latner. lie antagonized tlio young mau
coming to the house, aud from that mo
ment the young woman made up her mind
that she would take the man if he asked
her, and she did so, the father never putting
in an appearance at the wedding. - Mrs.
Conkling, however. ha3 the sweetness of
character and acquiescence in the wishes of
young people of her brother, Gov. Seymour.
She thought her daughter had a right to
marry where she loved, if no other objec
tions existed than want of fortune or posi
tion. Seymour took the same view, and
marched into church with his niece on his
CHLORIDE OF LIME AS AN INSEC
TICEDE. The Cultivateur remarks that rats, mice,
and insects will at once desert ground on
which a little chloride of lime has been
sprinkled. Plants may be protected from
insect plagues by brushing their stems with
a solution of it. It has been noticed that
a patch of land which lias been treated iu

about are literally devastated. Fruit
trees may be guarded from the attacks of
grubs by attaching to their trunks pieces of

Everybody has heard ot Dick Oglesby,
as he is familiarly called by his friends.
He was born in Oldham, and at an early
period of his life found liimselt a citizen
of Illinois. He soon satisfied the people
that lie knew something, and they kindly
took him by the hand. Finally they made
him Governor, and then a Senator in con
gress. His senatorial term ended ou tlio
4th day of March last. Of course ho
wanted to be re-elected, but there camo
along a fellow by tho name of Logan
John Logan, they call him and, by means
that were dark, defeated hi'm. So
our Richard is now a private citizen.
We must sr.y for him that ho is a pretty
clever gentleman, in both the Eugtish
and American sense of the word. Tho
other day ho was iu St. Louis, and tlio
Globe-Democrat undertook to iuterview
him, but he wouldn't interview worth a
cent. Filially the reporter told him that
the country looks upon Logan's election as
an addition to the Grant boom. This
seemed to wake him up, and his reply
shows how accurate is his knowledge of
John Logan. Hero arc his own words:
"That's what they think, is it? Weil, I
can tell you ttier- dun't know anvthiug
about Logan for Graut. lie is for Logan,
and uo one else. Ho thinks that he can bo
made president of the United States him
self. Look at the man, after swindling mo
out of my election, he gets up n show.
Men were urged to make enthusiastic dem
onstrations wherever ho went. He brought .
his show to Washington nnd there it fell
flat. All tho Illinois members ot Congress
stayed away ; nobody went there but the
clerks iu the Departments, who had to uo.
and the rest of the demonstration was tlio
'fall-iu' crowd that always gets behind ft fife
nnd drum. John Logan" for Grant! He is
for nothing but Logan. Ho likes to ride
tho poplar wave. If Grant was nominated,
you would find him an enthusiastic Grant
man on the day "of the convention. If it
was a heathen Chinese or somo life-long
Democrat, Joint Logan would bo in fit tho
finish, and his hat woujd go up In the air
among if not tho first."
A little religon is a dangerous thing.
That was well illustrated in the case of the
flro-eatina Virginian, who, while returning '
from a camp meeting, held out his hand to
an old enemy and exclaimed, "Give mo
l , a ... t . i .
your iiiiuu, dinners, i ve got rougton, nnu i
