When oft tlio coast of Sandbar, Tho clouds grew thick and black, And gusts ot wind blew billows Like mountains in their track. Tho agitated vessel Plunged high aloft and fell, And every ablo seaman Remarked: "Don't this beat 1" Then bold Beriah Wllklns, A sailor tried aud true, Stood on tho deck aud shouted: "Ho 1 cut tLo boom iu two 1" An lustaut, and Beriah Felt strangely queer Inside, And, weeping for Ills dlnucr, Ho gave It to the tide. Tho vcjsel kept ou heaving, llcilah heaved tho more," Till, Inn fit of weakness, Beilali took tho floor. He gazed across tbo wntcrs, itu many a jcarnful jcarn, And murmured: "Mr. Spcakci, I move that wo adjourn." At last tho hardy seamen Took Wllklns from tho floor, And tenderly thoy laid him Upon tho firm, dry shore. Then spoke tbo bold Beriah, So fearless, yet so pale, "I thank ou, noblo scanieu, Let's all return by rail." And so tho7 did, that evening, But as tha mall was late, Beriah and his sailors Returned to town by frclsrht. "TIs better," said Beriah, Reflecting on tho gale, "And when I next go sailing I'll walk or go by rail."

This sad talo will bo told by Colonel Wllklus Iu theso words: Tho South Fork dam was stiong that morn, At eve, beneath tbo flow Of raging writers, leaping high, It dropped ou Concmaugh. Tho whirling billows swept tho vale, As by n giant's breath, And cverj living thing was plunged Into tho tldo of Death. Upon a Pullman platform stood Our Frank lu plain attire, And when bo saw tho coming flood, Ho murmured, '-Oh, Beriah! "Why am I hero In dlro distress, Hedged In by theso alarms If I must die, why can't it bo, Beriah, lu ) our arms f "I seo the dark, tempestuous floods, That fill my soul with fears; If I must dron n, oh, why can't I Bo drownded In ) our tears t "Tho trivial things arc all forgot, Iu this disaster dire; 'TIs not my II to I fear to lose, TIs thee, 'tis thco, BcriaU 1" "Ah, loo llko mine Is lovo Indeed, And, Bwcetheart, wcro I lost, ho would thcro bo to take my placo, Aud boom Iho Sunday Vast f "Could you, Beriah, wield the pen Your Frouk has wielded so, To glorify Republicans f Oh, no, Beriah, uo I "These things, Beriah, still my heart And frcezo my cry blood, Thoy nro to mo much graver than The terrors of tho flood, "And, sweetheart" hero tho waters wild Surged up to nation's chin, And with n gurglo and a gulp They took each other iu. But Frank was light, and as tho flood Roso more nnd mora and morn, Tho tosslug waves picked Hatton up Aud cast him on tho shore.

And It was llrtlo comfort ho gavo tho Wlso faction when thoy called at tho Whtto Houso about 10 UO Ibis morning, tho tlmo appointed for tho hearing. Picsldcnt Harrison was pacing up and down tlio library patiently waiting tho coming of tho discontented Virginians, Tho Picsldcnt was, no doubt, In deep Ihoight, for ho failed to hear tho heavy" tread made by tho committco as thoy ascended tho stairs, and ho atmcarcd startled when Doorkeeper Lcolller opened thu door nnd announced tho truco maker. Iho President looked amazed, but, recov ering himself, ho held out his hand and creeled General Groncr, chairman; ox tlovcruoi Cameron. ox-Cougrcssmau Jas. D. Brady, 0. E. Illnc, L. McKonzIc, E.

Ex-Governor Cameron acted as snokct- man. Ho Informed tho President that tho polities in Iho Stato of Virginia wcro any thing but health; that It was througliGcn ci al Mahono's action that the Stato was lost last November, and that at present tho Republicans wcro practically bold in slavery by tho Mahono organization. It was not patronago thoy sought, but thoy did want tho 1'icsldcnt to kindly usohls offices to bring about n settlement of the existing difficulties. It was In tho Presi dent's power, nnd if Mr. Harrison would fxert his Influcuco tho Mahono organization tould bo destroyed and tha Republicans lu tho Stato would bo frco onco moro. Ex-Gonrnor Cameron stated tho caso from his nolnt ot view with crcat forco and clearness. Tho President appeared to tako great interest In what was said, but at tho fame time his face was complacablo At the conclusion ot Mr. Cameron's speech Iho President slowly nnd with considerable farncstness said that ho was sorry that ihcro should Lo such a breach in tho Slate, but that it was uot his province to Interfere witimtaio pontics, no was not ino rrcsi- ?.cnt of tho Republican party alone, but tlio 'resident of tho United States. Ho would recognize no faction lu tho Stato of Ylr glnla. Candidates for olllco would havo their claims considered on their ow n speel il merit, and it mado no dlffcreuco whether tlio candidates wcro indorsed by ouo faction pr another. Tho President also remarked that a com mittco from General Mahono called ou him jestcrday and that bo Informed them that hi tho question at Issuo he knew uo Maiono faction nor Wlso faction. And-that It re mained for tho representatives of tho party In tho Stato to patch up their differences among themselves. Ho would llko to seo bannonv In tho State, but It would havo to como ihrougb tho efforts of tho party leaders and not through blm. Tho com mittco left tho Whlto Houso In a aillcrcnt framo of mind than when thoy entered It, It was manifest that thoy had been sadly dlsoppolnlcd and no doubt thoy wcro much put out at tho fact that a Mahono deles i tlou had secured tho first Interview with Mr. Harrison. i.. ::.rr UHAIKIHAN UMIKUM'S DUClyliSaUII.

Tho Germans ot tho city havo mado a very decided stand In tho Cronln case. Tho ktaata-Zeitung, taking lip tho thread of Alexander Sullivan's life, sajs that, after tno return oi Aicxauucr ouiiivan en Chicago from New Mexico, whero ho had filled tho ofllco of Territorial Secretary about ten jearsago, an Incident occurred, which Is described iu detail lu tho btaats Zcxlmxj of this city. Soon after his return, that papor saj3, tbo United States Government mado an In vestigation. It was found that betweon $3,000 and $10,000 had been left unac counted for by Sullivan on leaving his office. As n result of this discovery nil official order was Issued from Washington to cnuso tbo arrest ot Alexander Sullivan on tho ebargo of embezzlement, uulcss tho deficit was spccdllv mado good. Sullivan succeeded In preventing his m rest for tho tlmo being, having prevailed upon two friends to glvo provisional ball for him. About this tlmo It vv as, too, that Sullivan Induced Patrick Egan, tho treasurer of tho lilsh National League, to furnish blm with $100,000 for .the al iened purnoso ot agitation In America. Right ou top ot this ho managed to straighten up his account with the Federal Government, pajlng tho entire sum ho had been found to bo short. This, sajs tho paper, occasions tbo strong suspicion that ho used a part, at least, of tho Egan fund for tbo purpose ot making up the deficit. THE Sl'LCIW. (iltVND JU11V.

I havo known him for years, and a belter man never lived. In my opinion tho deed was comm'tted by iicrsnual enemies of his, for no friend ot tho causo would do such a thing. Sullivan has enemies In Chicago and nil over tlio country who would hesitate at nothing to drug lilm dovv n to their own level.

A I'llOMINENT IlilSHMVN'tl VIEW-I. A prominent Irishman who hoi Is a high official position In this country said In re gard to tho Indictment of Sullivan; "Iu my opinion not only was It fair that Sulli van should bo nrrested, but his Indictment was an act of justlco to tho commuulty. Dr. Cronln was nn honest and houorablo man, and mj country men wero very Indis creet In pel scenting him foi his views. Fiom what I havo gnthcied from tho pa pers, nnd after careful thought on tho suli Jitt, I must confess that It looks very mtuh as If Sullivan, It not actually guilty ot the assassination ot tho Doctor, nt least was seriously implicated In his mur der. "But I don't bcllevo In prejudicing tho minds ot tbo public against a man who I behind closed bars and consequently can't defend himself. I havo defouded crlmtnala for j ears beforo tho bar ot Justlco and I at wnvssnld 'remove his tetters beforo I speak: and mako blm a frco man whllo ho defend" himself.' Of i our to nobody know s whether Sulllv aula guilt j or not aud It Is very In discreet and wrong foi mo to say anjthiiig; that would go toward prejudicing tho pub lie against a man who vwjhtba Innocent an 1 Is barred, fettered and unablo to defen I himself, But ns tar as 1 can seo It was not an Injustice, to deprive htm of Ids liberty or to commit him without ball," Another Colliuiy Itesumo.
