- The damaging report of false measure
ments in street improvements in Wash
ington, made by Mr. Blickensderfer, of
Ohio, one of the most capable engineers
in the country, will probably wind np

Mr, Bltckeni'derler was employed by
the committee to test the measurements
or the Board on the basis of which the
people and. the Government were as
sured. A report was curn nt in New Tork the
other day. to the effect that the Atlantic
Telegraph Company has determined to
obtain control of the W.-stern Union, and
has a-eady formed a pool of 15,000 shares.
Tbe design of this move, ir it has been
made, plainly is to cut off tbe new ocean
telegraph company from communication
. with inland points on the American Con
tinect. Such an attempt to prevent com
petition ought to, and undoubtedly would
' provoke liligation.and In the end it would
very likely be defeated.

Tbe pace oronr leisurely Congress,
when every other consideration fails, is
quickened by a touch ol the melting in
fluence of the sun. The range of the mer
cury for the past few days has been such
as to endanger a precipitancy in turning
off matters of public interest. It is com
plained that tbe business is disposed of in
a slovenly way, and tbat even tbe River
and Sarbor Appropriation Bill, after th
repeated changes it has undergone, was
far from being economically perfect So
with tbe Indian bill, and the Military
Academy bilL C gress is beginning to
make hot haste-such as usually charac
terizes the closing scenes of this body. It
is so natural to procrastinate and put off
tbat which is not absolutely and immedi
ately neopsaary, that no refinement of Con
gressional discipline is sufficient to raise
our law makers above Ibis weakness. Had
the business of tbe session been more even
ly distributed over tbe earlier or middle
portions of tbe session, the public welfare
would not have been subjected to the un
certainties and dangers to wVich the pro
ceedings are now exposed.
- The Civil War op Kansas haying
terminated in the unhorsing of Brooks
the effect of this war like demonstration
npon the minds and morals of the people
is to be noted. Tbe after crop is wide
spread murder and pillage througliou'
tbe region. Tbe ruffianly bands who
lately kept Little Rock in a slate of seig
are returning home with arms in their
hands, and a record of houses sacked,
and burnt is the chief indication of their
progress. 8uch an outbreak of lawlessness
as was recently witnessed in Arkansas
cannot fail to act as an incentive to crime
for many months to come. From mur
der under the orders of a usurpine Gov
ernor, there is i very ey transition to
murder under the stimulus of cupidity
or hatred. These troubl.-s in Arkansat
bave put back the material progress ti
the State, and sunk the moral tone of in
society to a level Irom hicb recover
will be s'"W and tedious.
CONGKKt. Little has been accomplish
ed in Congress tbe past week in the way
of Legislation. Tue financial probk-ni
seems as Air Irom the practical solution
as ever. The Arkansas embroglio ami
the President's Proclamation recognizing
Baxster as Governor, has caused an nn
wonted excitement among the trieods ol
Brooks, and the latter seems to have all
radical Republicans of that State on his
side. The two Arkansas Senator are
open and unreserved in 'condemning the
President's and Attoruey-General's ac
tion as hasty and unwarranted. Prudent
Constitutional lawyers, in both houses,
are quoted on the other hand as sustain
ing Grant, and in the avowal tuat no oth
er course was leit open to him alter the
Legislature and courts of the State had
arrived at the same conclusion.
The "R.-luriued Episcopalians" show
little consideration for venerable institu
tions. They have had a meeting in New
Tork of late, at which was shown an uu
usal degn-e,of earnestness in tbe work ol
emendation, interpolation and rejection
ud elimination. The Prayer Book, re
garded by all rigidJSpiscopalians wilb so
much reverence and sacrednebS the
Apostle's Creed and rubrics, are relent
lessly placed upon the reform block. Thai
stumbling-block in tbe creed "He de
scended into bell," has been changed to
"the place of departed spirits." To show
with what readiness changes were pro
posed, it was moved to omit from the
prayer for those in authority the words
"Grant tbem in health and prosperity
long to live." It was thought that these
words, though appropriate in a monarchy,
were unsuitable in a country where the
magistrates do not remain in office duriug
life. la the prayer for the President of
the United States, Dr. McNeilly moved to
strike out tbe words, "Thy servant," on
the ground that tbey were often inappro
priate. In the Litany it was proposed to
substitute tbe words, "Be gracious to us
forever," for tbe words, "Be not angry
with us forever" some members arguin
tbat the words, as they sto d, were offen
give. Such changes and proposed changes
indicate a determination not to suffer ti
moss or mould to gather upon the Re
formed Ch urcli.
Up among the hills of Goshen
ass. there was a large reservoir of
about one hundred and four acres
extent, where the various mill op
erators of Williamsburg, Skinner
ville, Haydenville and Leeds were
wont to store their summer supply
water. People living in the vi
unity of the dam say that it had
been leaking more or less for sever
weeks, and it is believed that the
dam, having been thus gradually
undermined, the water accquired
strong headway and suddenly on the
morning of the 16th inst. gave way
and the immense body of water
poured out in its strength, carrying
everything before it. The torrent
rushed upon the doomed villages
below with a loud roar, apparently
large advancing billow of under
brush and debris issuing rapidly
through tht deep gorges to the
height of forty feet, and again
spreading out a wide expanse of
seething, angry waves as it reached
more open country. Reaching
beautiful village of Williams
burg, some two and a balf utiles
distant, it stiuck a small button fac
tory, sweeping it out of existence;
next a saw and grist miliwere at
tacked and melted, not a vestige re
maining. Houses, barn eg and shops
followed like grass before the scythe,
and men women and children were
caught and borne away.
On the waves swept 'to Skinner-
ville, two miles distant, a silk facto-
oeing burled down, a hurra iron
boiler carried nearly a half a mile
and landed high and dry. In Hav-
ueuvuie, auour, one mile further on
bank building, a three story
urn;. Biruciure, was swept away,
scarely one brick being left upon an
other, the money in the vault shar
ing the seme fate. The smaller vil
lage of Leeds, between one and two
miles distant, was the next place to
suffer and the scenes 'of Williams
burg and Haydenville were here re
peated. A short distance below
Leeds were two bridges, one of' iron
stone, both nearly fifty feet
above the bed of the stream. They
were both swept away, the former
being carried bodily a considerable
distance down the stream. Here
greatest destruction appears to
stopped, although along the
until it emptied into the Con
necticut, a short distanoe below
Northampton! the banks are covered
all manner of debris, timber,
trees, pianos. tahWi rfcftira anil
The first warning the people in the
valley had was a horseman dashing
through the streets while the rider
shouted to the people to escape for
their lives, for the reservoir had giv
en away and the waters were coming
down upon them. Scarcely com
prehending the dreadful tidings, bat
with the instict of self-preservation
strong, the people began to rush
from their homes while the foam
flecked animal that had so gallantly
brought the messenger, sank to the
ground utterly exhausted. Another
horse was quickly secured, and the
message was borne to other villages,
but the alarm was so sudden that
they did not hear it, and scores were
caught by the swiftly rolling waters,
and aged grand-dames, innocent
children and strong men were alike
overwhelmned by the flood or crush
ed beneath the falling walls ot the
The lowest possible estimate -ol
the loss of life by the Mill River
disaster is one, hundred and seventy
five, and may reach two hundred.
One h undred and fifty seven muti
lated bodies have already been re
covered, and there is no telling how
many are still concealed ""with the
debris covering hundreds of acres of
land on both sides of the river. The
financial loss will reach two mil
lions. Hundreds of acres of mead
ow land, worth two hundred dollars
before the flood, are covered with
sand and rocks two fe et deep. At
Wi'.lamsburg fifty-three lives were
lost, in Skinnersville four were lost;
in Haydenville, twenty -eight perish
ed. The devastation in Leeds is
indescribable. Only three houses
remain and fifty -two lives were lost
Florence escaped serious damage.
The gate keeper of the reservoir
says he has lined in constant expec
tation of a break, and has often call
ed the attention of his superiors to
its unsafe condition. The accident
has caused great apprehension along
Mill River, of which the Goshen
reservoir is the head, which joins
the east branch at Williamsburg.
It is in all respects similar to the
Williamsburg reservoir. Mill River
is a tributary of the Connecticut,
and joins it at Northampton. '
