Accident to the Steameb D. W.
Wilson. While this steamer was off
Fairport, passing down the lake last
Saturday morning about 2 o'clock, she
ran into the wreck of the bark Board of
Trade, whose masts were standing high
above the water. There were no lights
on the wreck, and the Wilson ran be
tween the masts of the bark carrying
away the foremast and probably doing
other damage. The steamer returned to
Cleveland where she will discharge her
cargo of iron ore.
The tug Champion, which went to the
relief of the steam barge- Mary Jareki,
ashore wftli her barge at Rock Falls.
Lake Huron, arrived at Detroit on Fri
day night with that steamer in tow.
She had considerable water in her, her
rudder disabled, besides other damage
to repair, which will entail an expense
of some $2,ooo. The M. R. Warner, the
consort, fs yet ashore, thepower thus I
far brought to bear upon her having
been of no avail. She is one of the lar
gest, as well as finest vessels on the lakes,
and comparatively new. The wrecking
steamer Magnet, will probably be started
out to her aid.
The steamer Davidson, whose mam
moth dimensions we had occasion to no
tice a few weeks since, took a cargo
from Chicago last week of 97,700 bushels
of oats. The intention was to make
it 110,000 busbe'is, but for the delay in
getting the balance. The lightship sta
tioned at Bar Point during the severe
weather of Saturday night was driven
ashore and soon after sunk. The work
of raising her will be attended to at once,
and it is very important that she should
be at her post from tbis time until the
close of navigation.

New Lyme was first settled by a com
pany of about one hundred, who came
iron: Connecticut, not far from the same
date 1811. They exchanged their farms
in the old nutmeg State, with Elisha
Tracy, of Norwich, who was the owner
of New Lyme, township. - These pio
neers, had a rather tough time in making
their way through the wilderness to
their new homes. The trip occupied
about one month, and the beach of tbe
lake was followed for some portion of the
distance from Buffalo. This though af
fording a good roadway for a portion of
tbe distance, was a difficult one in round
ing some oi the headlands with the autumn
surf beating about their bases. The cros
sing oi Cataraugus creek was a difficult
task requiring the Ingenuity and energies
of the travelers. In roanding one- ot
these headlands during the preyalence
of a storm, in tbis vicinity, the company
came near losing their teams and braved
many dangers to life themselves The
father of Jeremiah Dodge of New Lyme,
besides tbe title of his farm of 1280 acres,
embracing the farm now occupied by
Calvin Dodge, of Dodgeville, had with
him $1,000, in paper, which in one ot
these trying experiences, was soaked in
to a mass, and only separated and dried
with much care and patience. The way
from Ashtabula to AuBlinburg, through
a .trackless forest, took' about a week's
time. Notwithstanding all this hard
ship.and that which followed, of clear
ing the land and getting it into condition
for providing for themselves and fami
lies, the pioneers were not a little dis
posed to chuckle at Ihe old proprietor of
their present farms, when in after years
he visited them. They had not lost tbe
recollection of their broken, sterile and
billy Connecticut farms, and the compari
son with those thp.t they were fast bring
ing into subjection, made them happy in

OUR NEW YORK LETTER.
OUR NEW YORK LETTER. The Business Outlook-Steers on the
OUR NEW YORK LETTER. The Business Outlook-Steers on the Rampage-Criminal-Beecher-Making
. ThprB have been numbers of failures
this week, which have excited some ap
prehension In business circles. But I see
in them no new cause for alarm, for they
do not impress me as indications of new
troubles. To me these failures mean
that the old trouble is not yet over. The
present failures are the rfsult of last
years' panic and subsequent depression of
business. A shrinkage of values, and the
difficulty of disposing of the goods on
hand, have been steadily iorcing a certain
class of dealers into bankruptcy. The re
covery of public confidence has been
slow, and business is bad. People have
grown cautious, and are buying so little,
that those who were bit last fall, but did
not die, and who expectej to do business
enough this season to recover, have been
disappoin ted, and hare been compelled
to haul down their flags. There will be
more of these failures : but lhere will
be no general panic. The weak firms
will go under, for there isn't business
enough to keep them afloat ; but they
will go under one at a time and not
in such masses as to create a general
AN EXCITING SCENE.
one most exci
ting scares that New York has been
treated to took place. 8ixty wild Texas
steers were being driven through the
crowded streets to their final goal, the
slaughterhouse, wheu, as might have
been expected, they took fright. A gen
uine stampede ensued. Bewildered and
frightened, the long-horned beasts be
came transformed into so many demons.
They charged in a wild, furious flight up
the densely crowded street attacking
what ever came in their way. Now a
man would be tossed from their fearful
horns now a cart would be overtured.
Men and women climbed awning posts,
and crowded into doorways for safety.
Finally the herd became separated, and
one by one the furious beasts were cap
tured. But they made' it lively while
they were about it To have sixty wild
steers, mad and blind with rage, charge
through a street crowded with vehicles,
and men, women, and children, is any
thing but a joke. It is a wonder that no
lives were lost and that so few were in
SOME CRIMINAL STATISTICS.
inventory ot the criminal
situation bas been taken, and the figures
giyen are startling. For instance, the
cost of caring for the dangerous classes,
courts, police and prisoners, roots up $5,
000,000 annually. The arrests per year
amount to 112,000, and the criminals, that
is to say, the people who live by viola
ting 1 aws, number 50,000. There are in
the city 12,000 actual prostitutes, known
and open in their pursuits, and prob
ably as many more who live by prostitu
tion, but who carry on their nefarious
business quietly and not in a public way.
There are three thousand known pick
pockets plying their, trades all the time,
then there are six thousand thieves who
Lave no speciality, but who steal any
thing that comes in their way. There
are 1,000 female shop-liters who make
their living by plundering stores, and
there are 600 fences, or to use English,
receivers of stolen goods. When I put
the number of criminals at 50,000, 1 do
not, of course, include the Democratic
politicians. Add that class to the esti
mate and the number would be swelled
at once to 75 thousand. But the show is
sufficiently frigh tful without adding this
most dangerous of all these classes.
Beecher has commenced suit against Til
ton and Moullon for libel, and the nas
tine ss will go to the courts for final ad
judication . This is where it should have
gone at tbe beginning. In the courts
theacto in the case will be brought out
for there can be no suppression of evi
dence and no dodging. If Tilton and
Moullon have conspired to ruin an inno
cent man, the fact will be made apparent,
and if on the other hand the mar id not
innocent, it will be so shown. Bui right
in the midst of the satisfaction that this
terrible trouble will be settled by the
Courts, comes one terrible draw back,
which goes to show that human telicity
cannot be perfect The bitter drop in
the cup is, Mrs. Tilton is going to make

And if she does, will it be believed ?
Like the rest of them, it is to her a "pain
ful duty," but she feels it a duty, and
she is going to do it For your sakes
Messrs. Editors, I pray she may be more
economical of words than the rest of
them have been. May she keep within
thirty ordinary newspaper columns. But
there is no telling. ' The people concern

number of them they have heaved upon
the world. I fear the gentle Elizabeth
will not prove an exception to the rule.
The individual who supposes that to
get very rich it is only necessary to come
to New York and "go into business," la
bors under a fearful delusion. Not one in
a hundred who goes into business in this
city retires with a competency or any
thing like it. You see when you pay $15.-
000 a year rent, when you pay clerk hire,
commissions for the business you do)
and when the simple item of gas amounts
to $1,000 a year, you have got to sell a
great many goods and do a great deal of
business to get anything ahead. The
curse of New York is expenses. Nothing
Is done for love or friendship money
enters into everything, and the money
question is so prominent, so ever present
that he who makes any of it in business
has got to have an extraordinary capaci
ty for business combination, and enor
mous capital on which to make money.
The most money that has been made here
for years has been in real estate. Tbe
enormous appreciation of real estate up
town bas made everybody rich who was
lucky enough to secure any considerable
amount Lots on Broadway, near 20th
street which a few years ago were sold for
$1,800, have advanced in value to as high
as $75,000. The immense increase in
population and business in the city bas
made property up town very valuable,
and has made great fortunes for tbe
shrewd or the lucky. But the business
man labors and sweats for his lucky fel
lows. A store on a lot which is valued
at $75,000, has to pay. interest on that
sum, and when tbe nnfortunate occupant
bas paid that rent, he has very little left
ior himseir. Oh, ye dwellers in the
country, keep out ol Gotham. If you
have a good square living aod a fair busi
ness, stick toil, for it is a thousand
times better than anything you will Kct
here. There is a great deal of glitter and
Bhow, but it is all plated. Stick to your

cent dissolution become the sole proprie
tor of the corner drug store. His an
nouncement will be found in this paper.
His address to his customers shows a
laudable ambition to make, what has been
so well begun, a still more popular resort
for the public. His quiet, earnest and ac
commodating manner finds an endorse
ment, and exerts an apparent influence
upon his trade. His large and varied
stock, with its range of demand, handy
location, and current of customers, are
not a little exacting, we notice, upon body
and mental activities.

The County Board of Examiners met
in this place on Monday last to arrange
systematically their work for the future .
These examinations have been held since
the organization of the new Board, in
Ashtabula, Orwell, and Andover. The
number of applicants was 145, of them,
102 received certiflcates lor a period va
rying from six months to two years.
Examinations will be held during the
remainder of the present year at Geneva,
Con neaut, Rock Creek, and Jefferson, at
the times advertised in tbis No. of the

Importance of beingjpresent, promptly at

examinations will close at 4 P. Jt. with an

lotted to each branch, and all the pa

Dr. J. A. Brush, whose card will be
lound in this number of the Telegraph,
will, we are inclined to think, prove an
important accession to the medical skill
and ability ot the county. His course of
training has been more thorough than is
common to the fraternity. He has the
benefit of four full courses of lectures, viz:
One at the medical college of Michigan,
two at tbe medical college of'Buffalo, and
one at Jefferson medical college, Philadel
phia, and graduated from both of the two
last institutions. He Will give special at
tention to all diseases, both acute and
chronic, and also to surgery. The open
ing at Rock Creek-is thought to be a good
one. Our friends of that enterprising
town have reason to congratulate them
selves upon their good fortune in the
choice that fixed the Doctor's settlement
among them, and : will not fail to ac
knowledge it by giying him a hearty set
off. . .
The way men put off important matters
to the last- moment is one of the curious
things in nature. The fifth concert in
aid of the Public Library of Kentucky
was advertised to take place Aug. 10th.
The day after, the 11th Gov. Bramlctte,
the manager at Louisville, received over
$50,000 for tickets. . Had the drawing
taken place at that time, the Governor
would have to send this money back, but
as the Concert was postponed to Novem
ber 31st, it was all right with them.
We presume that on the first day ofDe
cember next, the day after the Concert,
one day too late, for , there will be no
further postponement This money
might just as well have been sent a week
before, as when it was.
