night at the residence of Mrs. Gash, on
Tenth street, to indulge in the substantiate

the outgrowth of too much faith
in the ability of Mr. Bbiine to
"sweep the country like a whirlwind." The
principals in the affair were the amiable
lady of the house and Mr. Burnett, of TnE
Bulletin. ,The upper was an honor to
Mr. Cleveland, and like him a eucces.
Among the guests present were Mrs. Wood
ward, of Lockport. Doctors Geo. and H-r-bert
Parker, Col. Jno. W. Scott, and Mr.
and Mrs. Burnett. The speeches were light
and airy but the eating and drinking was
The Argus, in its Mound City news
Friday night, published an account of the
sinking of a flat-boat loaded with 4 000
barrels of potatoes at the "lower end of
Grand Chain in the Ohio," and that "the
Gus Fowler took 600 bbls. from her."
This account is correct except that the boat
didn't have 4,000 barrelc aboard, only 2,
500; didn't sink at Grand Chain, but at the
Sisters a few miles below Golconda; didn't
sink on Wednesday but on Friday, 21st;
the Fowler didn't take GOO bbls from the
wreck, but the City of Nashville did me
wed in saving 600 bbls. which she deliver
ed at Paducah. With these few correc
tions the account hs published eight days
a'"ter the accident miy be regarded a ac
curate. Nothing like reading an evening
paper for the very latest.
The following letter settles the ques
tion aa to what was the name of the un
known steamboat wreck lately raked up
by the dredge b mt. The letter is addrched
to the correspon lent of the Gio e-D "nocr it
at Cairo, and is a follows: "Dear S r I
think I can settle he question in regard to
the wreck of the atcatnl at found on the
Brooklin rocks. If the wreck was found
lying on the lower end of the rocks, it was
the Lake of the Woods, snd was owned
by a gentleman living In Psducah named
Thad. Jacobs. The Lake of the Woods
was a single engine boat and was com
manded bv Cnt. Wm. W.Midn, a brother of
Capt. E ij h Vo,,rl of Pidurah. The en
gine of the L ke ii th Woods aaa'tT
waros i ut in a sH'n -wheel lioat, called the
Emma Brovn, a Calr nm l Pi uc.ili packet.

C. Pariee, Pilot City of St. L mis."
Capt. Jnn. W King bad an adventure
nt New Mtdrid Friday that bo will dream
of occasionally. The circumstance as giv
en t) the Argus is as follows: "He bis been
, loading corn In barges there and started in
a skiff with eight men to pall out around
tho head of the fit et. The current is ex-
c edingly swift and the man at the oars
ot his presence f mind as the current car
ried th" yawl down between the barea 'o-
wards the head of the beat. They were
spread apart and hjld as UsUd by lines
which crossed each other thickly in the in
tervening space. With proper coolnes
and skill toe situation need not have been
at all dangerous, but the oarsman threw
down his oars and caught the lines over
head. Thirl swamped the skiff and the
whole party hd to lay hold ol the lines
and bang in the cold water until rescued
by parties on the barges. Capt. John King
says that in the excitement the peril of
the situation did not trouble bira much,
but looking back at it now he acknowl
edges that it slightly ngitnt' S bis mind. Ii
was a very c!oe call."

intelligence of the death of hia Venerable

friends in Cairo the news comes wiilmu:

age surrounded by kind friend and lovinu
ebitives, and dying enter thu mansions
prepared by the Lord for his own, whetu
life and love are unchanging and eternal.

"Salt," the cyrloj rcdia says, "i the only
mineral substance universally employed by
man and the higher or er of animals. Be
xid' b itsetiin ct consumption as food, enor
niOJa qualities are needed for preserving
meats and fish. Much is consumed for ag
ricultural purposes, and given to hones, '
cattle, hogs and sheep, and a very large
amount is used in chemical operations) par
tii u'ary In the manufacture of soda. This
last process alone takes about 48,000 tons
annually in Frce, and a single establish
ment near Glasgow has used 20,000 tons
for the past 20 years. The proportionate
consumption of salt in different conntries is
very variable. In the United States it U
estimated at ahnut 00 pounds annually for
each person, in Great Britain at S3, in
France at 15. Animals and many plants
will n "t thrive when deprived of salt. Cer
tain plants which grow at the seaside de
pend upon it, sod are also found inland in
the ii ig l borbond of salt mines and lakei.
It is en ployed is a remedy for dyspepsia,
and a spoonful of dry salt will sometimes
cluck hemorrhage of tbt lungs or hemor
rhage from other causes.. In small doses
it acts as a stimulant tonic and in larger
onos as a purgative and emetic. It has al
so been ued with good effect in intermit
tent fever. It is a necessary stimulus io
health, quickly passing into the blood and
heaping tiy the kidneys.' These are only
soineof the niaoy uses, medicinal and oth-
rwise in which salt is employed.
Salt is now manufactured in New York,
Ohio, Kanawha, in West Virginia, Sagin
aw, Michigan, and St. John, Illinois. Wa

section, and the authority from which it is

Fioni this it will be noticed that south

ead ai d statin's at the head for strength
ami purity ol qutlity o' salt. It is manu
factured by the steam process, in which the
brine, after pi-sing through a furnace and
ned Irom iron, is drawn into steam set
tlers where it ia brought to saturation.
These settlers are wooden cisterns 125 feet
long 8 feet wide and 4 feet deep. They

This excellent salt is put up in bright,

for home and farm use. It, like ail other
salt, should always be kept under cover, as
it deteriorates rapidly when exposed to the
weather; and in curing meat, it is always
necessary to see that the animal beat is en
