The Flood at Alton.
Alton, Iu, April 30. The river at this
point has rinen seven in the twenty-four
hours ending at 5 p. in. Height above low
water mark 3." to U3 feet. Tho Eagle
Packet Company's warehouse is Hooded to
a depth of three feet. At the glassworks
tinbaukments are being thrown up to keep
out the water. Across the river, on MU
tiouri Point, hundreds ot acres of growing
wheat are under water.
Scenes Alou? the Sny Levee.
Qcincv, III., April 20 .-Specials from
Fall Creek, 1 lock port and other points
along the Sny levee, state the river to day
is stationary, there having been no rise
since midnight. The water is now about
two inches higher than during the great
Hood of last year. Tho crevasse in the
levee is constantly widening, and all elforts
to stop the break have been futile. Tlie
water is steadily spreading over tha wide
area protected by the embankment, but it
is impossible to estimate the extent of dam
age. A strip of highly-cuItivaJed land
from three to eight miles wide and nearly
fifty miles long is already under water, or is
certain to share in the general destruction.
To-day the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy
railroad track is under water between Fall
Creek and Hannibal, and one of the trestle
bridges has been carried away. The truck
just below Quincy is also badly washed by
the high water. The Mississippi river,
below the city, is over ten miles wide, all
bottom lands on both sides being flood' d.
The Situation at Quincy.
Qn.NCY. III., April 2U. There is noth
ing additional to report about the tfny
levee. The water is gradually tailing in
side. It is feared that other breaks will
occur unless the river falls very last, which
is not probable. It has fallen half an ii.ch
since morning, having first reached a
height of seventeen feet four inches, one
inch above last year's mark. A telegram
to Gen. Fonda, the engineer of the Warsaw
levee, dated at the latter place last niht.
says: "The levee is all right uow; water
tell one inch since morning."
A Cowardly Assault.
Quincy, III., April 25.-Between the
breaking of the Sny levee and a cowardly
assault on Mr. A. L. Langdon, editor of the
Commercial Review, by one Dr. Barr, this
city has been in a furore of excitement to
day. Tho facts of the latter case appear
to be that Dr. Barr, of Ellington, adjoin
ing this city, took offense at an article in
Saturdays Review, in which Langdon mir
rored Dr. Barr. and other bachelors of the
city. The latter being in the city to-d.-iy,
his attention was called to the Review. He
secured the services of a friend to introduce
him to Langdon without telling him of his
design. The friend took Burr to Langdon's
office and introduced him to the latter, who
was writing at his desk. As he arose
Barr raised a short cane which be held,
and assaulted Langdon, who was unarmed,
in a brutal and cowardly manner over tho
head. The scalp was broken, and other"
severe wounds iullicted on the editor, who,
with only the weapons nature gave him,
made the best defense possible. But for
the fact that Mr. T. M. Rogers, of the News,
Mayor Webster and others Quickly inter
fered, much greater injury might have been
inflicted. As it was ho was very severely
hurt and he and his desk covered with
blood, which flowed from the wounds in
flicted by the cane in Burr's hands. Mayor
Webster arrested Burr and took him to the
station, where be) gave bonds to appear for
a healing. Langdon's wounds weru dress
ed, and he was taken to his home; His
wounds, though painful and severe, are not
dangerous. Dr. Barr is a native of this
The Worst Over at Omaha.
Omaha, Neil, April 20. Tho flood re
mains about as yesterday. Tho water has
fallen two or three inches, but a strong
south wind has prevailed nearly all day
and held the current back, making tho fall
very slight. The river has fallen over two
feet at Sioux City, 'and by morning will
loubtless bo several inches lower here,
and faling more rapidly. There is nothing
of special importance to report to-night
except the above, as details of tho freshet
have already been given and people here
aro now simply waiting tor the water to go
lown, having settled down to the convic
tion that tho worst is over at least for the
present, though fears aro entertained that
farther trouble may he expected bcloro the
season is over. Trains aro running west
and south, and mails wero brought over to
day, but communication cast is still ir
regular and uncertain.

Carlylo at llorne.
It was generally in the evening, says
a writer in The 'London Xnr.i, "thV
Mr, Carlylo was surrounded by his
friends. Tea was the usual preliminary
and lifter it the philosopher espeeialiy
in later years was ami-donied to lako
his seat, half recliniiiL', on the floor, so
that tho bowl of his long ehiy piim
might reach the neighborhood "of I ho
fii-qilaoo. and the fumes go up tho chim
ney. Then he would pour out his won
derful talk, which seemed to be of im
rueasureablo valine and richness. It
mattered little what subject w;ts sug
gested. The Russian, the Italian, the
Frenchman or American who happened
to be his guest wero sura to fuul that
here was ono who could give thetn de
tails about tho history and literature of
their several countries which they had
never heard before. The present wri
ter has known him to talk about birds
till one would have said ho must liavo
passed his life in the study of ornithol
ogy, until the next t'l'no ho. heard him
discoursing about tea or cofl'en, or
words of myths almost anything
when ho would become aware that lie
was in tho presence ofuno who had
explored nearly every part of tho world
ho lived in to the farthest point. Not
less impressive than tho matter was'tho
manner of his wonderful talk. Some
times his face would tlanio with the
wrath or earnestness which his subject
kindled, and hia li.-tener shrank as be
fore a gathering storm: but it miirht bo
that sonin droll aspect of the case would
suddenly eatcli hia eye, and tho storm
would burst in thunderous but not un
musical laughter, or still oft oner, somo
delicato or tender association would
surprise his stormy path, nnd in a mo
ment his voice would sink to the sweet
ness of a Into. Tho tobacco-nine stlwavs
seemed to bo n sign of tho inward
workings of tho sublime talker; it
would send out thick clouds, or tiuiet
blue curls, as its master's story or ar
gument grew vehement or gentle; but
it was siiro to go out at nearly every
punctuation of his long sentences, and
to buvo to be relighted many times in
the cour o of tho evening. Sometimes
in tho summer twilight ho would sit
with a fellow-smoker in his garden,
nnd it might bo on tuich occasions there
would be long meditative pauses half
hours or more of absolute silence." Tho
extraordinary charm ol his conversa
tion and manner is known only to a
few. llo had a stalely nalivo courtesy'
dignity and consideration for tho feel
ings of others which, notwithstanding
some small defects of temper, must
nave sirucK every one who approached
him. He wns not nt his best when ho
was allowed to have till tho conversation
to himself, for in such cases he talked
(as was natural) too much lil;o his books
but when ho was in company where
ho was obliged to give and lake ho was
tho most chnrining of talkers. His
laugh was freedom and cordiality itself.
His humor was at onco so powerful and
so suhtlo that it seemed to exhaust tho
matters on which it touched. His
shrewdness, especially in judging -of
character from small indications, was
extraordinary. Ho onco denounced as a
scoundrel a man of business who at the
time was In tho best of repute, and who
.shortly afterward turned out to deserve
ull that had been said against him.
"How," ho was asked, "did you find
him out, Mr. CarlvlcP" "Oh,r8ald he.
"I saw roguo iu tho twist of tho false
hip of him as ho went out at that dour."
