Dawes—Sundry Capita] Notea. Washington, May s.— The President’s message withdrawing Conkllng’s New York nominations is an outright declaration of war by the administration. Toe President ex presses regret at the contest, and says he sought to avoid it, but could not, with honor to himself and his office, and that Conkling had declared in the Republican caucus his determination to fight the administration’s friends In New York, if Robertson was forced on him, and even if he should turn the State over to the Democrats. Conkling carried the Republican caucus with him, and the President at once deter mined to assume the aggressive as the only means of maintaining bis party in New York. The administration intends to fill every New York Federal office with its friends, and to withhold patronage from every Republican Senator who votes with Conkiing. The President bolds that the fiirbt was forced on him, and that he kept the peace as long as he could. Conkling’s friends say this fight will ruin Garfield even though Conkling may be beaten. The Democrats are pleased at the bitter fight and applaud the President for his pluck. The administration Intends to urge Robertson’s confirmation, and no doubt is now entertained but that he wiil be con firmed by a two third vote. The Senate ratified the two Chinese treaties one each with Italy. Morocco and Colombia to-day. That disposes of all the treaties and leaves only nominations to be acted upon. The general opinion is that the Benate will adjourn in less than ten days, as the Republicans are too much dis turbed to resume the fight for Gorham and Ridilleberger. SENATE PROCEEDINGS. Immediately after the reading of yester day’s journal the Senate, oa motion of Mr. D-iwes, at 12:05, went into executive session. The Senate transacted a remarkably large amount of business in its executive session to day, clearing the calendar of the treaties, and also taking final action on eighty-eight nomination. The first matter di.-posed of was the Chinese immigration treaty, which, after nearly three hours de bate, was ratified without amendment, by a practicaiiy unanimous vote, there being only two Senators recorded in the negative. The Chinese commercial treaty was then taken up, and, after a brief discussion, was also ratified without amendment, and substantially with out opposition. The Senate nert ratified in quick succession the extradition treaty with the United States of Colombia, the consular conventiou with Italy, a conven tion with Morocco and a treaty with Japan, relative to the reciprocal duties of the United States and Japan in case of ship wrecks upon their respective coasts. TUe folio wing Southern nominations were confirmed duripg the day’s session : Joseph L. Gaston, Surveyor for the port of Chatta nooga; Georee B. Evtrit.t, Collector of Cus toms for tbe Fifth district of North Caro lina, and Wm. Umdenstock for the Fourth district of Texas. Postmasters—Geo. E. Matthews, Hezle hurst, Miss ; Thos. Richardson, Port Gib son, Miss.; Alex. G. Pearce, Greenville, Miss., and Wm. S. Tipton, Cleveland,Tcnn. THE SECOND EXECUTIVE SESSION. The Senate in executive session this after noon confirmed several nominations, in ducing that o! Wm. Walter Phelps, of New Jersey, to be Minister to Austria. Consideration of the Chinese immigration treaty was again resumed, Senator Miller taking the floor in continuation of his argu ment in favor of its ratification. NEW TORE NOMINATIONS WITHDRAWN. The President sent a message to the Sen ate this afternoon withdrawing all of the principal New York nominations except that of Judge Robertson. The message was simply a formal message of withdrawal, containing no explanation or com ment. The nominations withdrawn are Stewart L. Woodford, as United States At torney for the Southern district; Asa \V. Tenney, as United States Attorney for the Eastern district; Lewis F. Payne, as United States Marshal for the Southern district; Clinton D. McDaugall, as United States Marshal for the Northern district, and John Tyler, as Collector of Customs for the Dis trict of Buffalo, N. Y. A PROTEST FROM MR. DAWES. Senaror Dawes has telegraphed the fol lowing to a New England newspaper : “Piease say to-morrow that all the statements ’ that I or any of the committee of which I am one have advised the President to withdraw the nomination of Robertson, or have recom mended to him or to the caucus that action or nomination be postponed to another ses sion, are false fabrications of facts at this end of the wire, and those at the other end who use the fabrications as true, beat them selves, not me.” GEORGE A.

Tbe Present Status of luteruul Re form-Probable Collapse ol the A mi-Re vol lllloll l*l*’ Conference. London, May 5—A St. Petersburg die patch says: “An important Ministerial Council was held on Tuesday. It was unanimously decided to favor unity of ad ministration, which will involve Ministerial responsibility, to be secured by conferences of Ministers, under the presidency of one of their number. The Czar has offered General Melikoff this presidency. He is diffident, but doubtless will accept. The question of tbe convocation of Depu ties stands over, but only for the moment. The danger of the adoption of a policy of increased repression is no longer formida ble.” St. Petersburg, May 5 —The Golo* says: ‘•lf France and England will not attend the Anti-Socialist Conference the project must be deferred until they change their opinions, as the action of the other powers without them would have no practical result.” The government has definitely decided to discontinue public executions.

A series of questions submitted by Mr. Vrolik, and reported by the committee, were unanimously adopted for discussion. The delegates from Germany, Austria, England, Indta, Canada, Greece, Portugal, Sweden and Switzerland explained the views of their respective gov ernments. It is understood that their state ments contained reservations of various degrees of importance. M. Cernuschi, in a speech opening the general discussion, dwelt upon the necessity of coming to an understanding with the delegate for Ger many whose statement had altered the Dosltion of affairs. The speech of the Ger man delegate was ordered to be printed and distributed among the members of the con ference. The discussion wUI be resumed Saturday. _ Terrible Low of Life- Millions of rats, mice, cats, bed bugs, lose their lives by collision with “Rough on R*U.” Bold by druggist*, 15c. RAILWAY GOSSIP.

Tunis, May s.—The rumored occupation of Beja and Porto Farino by the French is untrue. The Bey persists in his refusal of the French demands. An officer of the British ironclad Monarch visited the Bey at Barclo yesterday. General Logeroto’s column has not advanced beyond Djerbaba. Madrid, May s—The Liberal states that the Spanish Ambassador at Paris has been privately informed that the Tunis affair would be settled within a week,as France is not anxious for further complications. Ir. may be stated that the Ministry are certain ly desirous to settle the affair before tbe Chambers reconvene. The only question is how much pressure the Bey can stand with out yielding the treaty of guarantees which France requires, and the dismissal of the Premier and other alvisers hostile to Fn-urh interests. Paris, May 5 —The concentration of the troops being complete, the French will im mediately attack the principal positions of the Kroumirs between Sidi Abdullah and Ben Djeinet.

Tbe Monument to Beaconsfleltl— Mr. Dillon 111—Tbe Tory Leader* *lilp Parnell's Amendment to the Land Bill—The League Members to Abotaln from Voting on the Second Reading of the Measure— The Question of Anglo-American Copyright. London, May s.—John Dillon, who was arrested on Monday evening last and taken to Kilmalnham jail, is ill. He will be re moved to the infirmary to-day. There is no cause for anxiety regarding his condition. He suffers from chronic dyspepsia. The statement that Mr. Dillon would resign his 6eat in the House of Commons was a canard. The question will be left for the decision of the Executive Committee of the Land League. The Daily Hews, in its leading article this morning, says: “We do not desire to stint tbe generosity of the tributes to the late Lord B-aconsfield as a man, but a national monument in Westminster Abbey would, we believe, bear false testimony to the de liberate judgment of the English people on the es-sential fettur sand animating motive in Lord Beacousfleld’s life.” The Pall Mall Gazette says: “Dissatisfac tion is beginning to prevail among the reasonable section of the Irish members of Parliament at the slow progress of the land bill.” Sir Stafford Northeote, speaking at Kit tering last night, assured his hearers that there would be no discussion among the Tory chiefs relative to the leadership, and intimated that the question was not a press ing one. It is rumored in the lobby of tbe House of Commons this afternoon that Lord Bel borne, the Lord High Chancellor, has re signed on account of the bid for the amend ment of the Parllamentar}' oath act. Earl Granviile, Foreign Secretary, recent ly addressed a dispatch to Mr. Lowell, the American Minister, on the subject of copy right, saying that it would be satisfactory to England if a treaty could be negotiated with America on the same basis as with other countries, namely, without any condition for the manufacture of English books In America, but if this condition is essential England will negotiate on that basis. A treaty providing that books written by American authors in England shall be manufactured in America iu order to have a copyright there, would be covered by the existiug act, but if it provides that books written by American authors in America shall be manufactured in England in order to have a copyright in England, such a provision would require the sanction of Parliament. Mr. Lowell replied that a treaty confirmed by the Senate would be law m America. Possibly supplementary legislation would be needed to enforce its provisions in detail, but he understood this would follow as a matter of course. The trial of llerr Johanne Most, the pub lisher of Frelheit, which was set for Friday or Saturday next, has been postponed until the next session of the Central Criminal Court. In the House of Commons to-day Mr. Forster, Chief Secretary for Ireland, in re ply to & question, said he had received no information of the reported seizing and roasting of a bailiff named King, in Ireland, as stated in a Galway dispatch of April 33th. He said further that he did not be lieve it. Mr. Parnell has just given notice of an amendment opposing the second reading of the land bill. Sir Wm. Harcourt, Home Secretary, in reply to Mr. Cower, as to whether the information acquired bv the London police after the seizure of Herr Most’s paper w-is communicated to the Vienna police, and formed tbe grouud of certain arrests in Aus tria, denied any connection between the affairs, but asserted that if the police of one country obtained information regarding the crime of murder, or an attempt at murder, in another, It would be their doty to com municate with the respective authorities, with the view to prevent such crimes. Mr. Gladstone, replying to Mr. Parnell, said he would place no obstacle in the way of Mr. Justin McCarthy’s motion, that the action of the Irish Executive in arbitrarily arresting a member of Parliament and pro claiming the city of D üblin, is an abuse of the powers granted by the coercion act, etc., but that he could not facilitate It. Mr. Gladstone announced, amid cheers, that he will move on Monday next an address, praying tbe Crown to provide a monument in Westminster Abbey to the memory of Lord Beaconsfleld, with an in scription expressing the high sense of the House of his rare and splendid gifts, devot ed labors in Parliament and in the great offices of State, assuring the Queen that the House of Commons would make good the expressions attending thereon. Earl Granville gave a similar notice iu the House of Lords. The Parnellites, at a meeting to-day, adopted a resolution to abstain from voting on the second reading of the land bill, and to leave the House in a body when the di vision is called. Mr. Parnell’s amendment opposing the second reading of the land bill declares that the land bill in its present state would fail to secure to tenant farmers such reduction in rent as would afford adequate protection to their property la their holdings, and would leave evicted or rack rented tenants in a defenseless position, aud that it offers no guarantee of the creation of a sufficient number of occupying owners to check me - nopoly in land, or make available for the laboring population any of the large area of cleared laud from which the former occu piers were unjustly evicted. In the House of Commons to-night debate on the land bill was again adjourned until Monday, after a discussion principally con sisting of criticism of details. A meeting of the Executive Committee of the Land League, which Is to be held in London, to consider arrangements rendered necessary by the arrest of Mr. Dillon, has been postponed, pending the arrival of Secretary Brennan. It is stated that the Home Rule members of the House of Commons have decided to refrain from voting on the second reading of the land bill. The Wrecks on the Texas Pacific- Farther Details. Galveston, May 5. —A special from Weatherford gives further particulars of the fearful wreck of the two freight trains at 1 o’clock yesterday morning on the Texas and Pacific Railroad, one 169 miles, and the other 178 miles west of Weatherford, caused by heavy rains similar to water spouts, tearing away two trestle bridges.

Edmunds, of the west bound, were injured, the former seriously. Several other persons were slight ly hurt. The Norfolk and Western—A Tour of Inspection. Bristol, Tenn.. May s.— An excursion party, composed of the Presidents and Di rectors of the railways connected with the Norfolk and Western, the Shenandoah Valley and the Louisville and Nashville system, completed their inspection of the newly acquired Norfolk and Western Rail road at this point to-day. The condition of the road bed and the general equipment far exceeded the expectations of the manage ment. The party of railway officials make the return trip to New York over the She nandoah Valley Road to morrow, hopiDg to overtake tbe Duke of Sutherland’s party, now visiting the battle fields of Northeastern Virginia. 1 • < ■ 1 . A Vessel Forced to Run Ashore. Havana, May 5 —The ship Enoch Train, from New Orleans for Liverpool, laden with cotton, put into this port yesterday with her rudder broken and sixteen feet of water in her hold, having struck on the rocks at Tortugas Island. In order to save the ves sel she was run ashore here. It is well understood in Washington that Mahone is afraid of Conkling, and he truckles to the New York Senator in such an obvious way as to be very notice able. Conkling, who usually only con descends to address his conversation to the older and more pretentious Senators, is flattered by the diminutive Virginian, and he sometimes permits a shake of the hands, and occasionally, but very seldom, a confidential chat.— Baltimore Gazette.

Richmond, May 5 —Dr. Charles Mac Gill, an eminent physician of this city, died to day, in the seventy-fifth year of his age. The deceased was a native of Baltimore, and came of distinguished ancestry, being a lineal descendant of Thomas Jennings, who was the King’s Attorney under the Colonial Government of Maryland, and Rev. James Mac Gill, of Scotland, who settled in Maryland in 1728. He settled perma nently in Hagerstown, Maryland, where he married and became a leading citizen. Upon the breaking out of the late war, the sympathies of the doctor and his family being with the South, caused them to be kept under constant surveillance, aud to suffer numerous indignities, resulting, fin ally, In his arrest and confinement as a State prisoner in Fort McHenry and other Federal prisons until November, 1862, when he was unconditionally released. The following year during General Lee’s invasion of Min land, he cast his lot with the fortunes of the Confederacy, remaining with the Southern army until Lee’6 surrender at Appomattox. After the war Dr. Mac Gill made this city his home, where his probity and many accomplishments secured for him an ex tensive pract’*3 and many valued friends. He leaves aj: aged wife and a numerous progeny. LETTER FROM ATLANTA. All Quiet Along the Linen The Speculative Fever Subside* —The Railroad Commla&lon und the Railroads—Promised Benefits from Mr. Wadley'* Combination*—Real Estate iu Georgia Looking Up. Atlanta, May 4 —Editor Morning News: Unusual serenity prevails at the capital. Trade channels have lapsed into the quiet naturally to be expected at this season, and tbe brain of enterprise is engaged in working up new schemes of profit The echoing sound of the hammer and the musical clink of the stone cutter’s pick is heard all around the city, indi cating that the work of architectural im provement is going steadily forward and like ly to make rapid headway ere the short days and frosty weather again return to check the operations of the builder. The startling sensation of the late negotia tions affecting railroad interests in the state, and exciting speculation iu values, seems to have settled into a general feeling of satisfac tion, that the honor and welfare of our people and State seaports wi,l be preserved, with a growing disposition to give due credit to the Central Railroad officials for the vigorous manner, skillfully executed, in producing these brilliant results The effect will be seen in a mere cordial and fraternal sentiment between formerly rival interests in the several communities of our State, and in a tendency to more closely unite people who for years have been inclined to watch each other with jaundiced and jealous eyes. Nothing now remains to bring about a perfect and intelligent under standing between the thinking body of our ciiizens and the great carrier lines upon the continued prosperity of which the livelihood of so many depends, but the modification of the features of the Com mission, which, as it now operates, is an anomalous and incongruous institution in a re publican government, as has been so per sistently and ably urged by the News and other journals The leading paper of this city,among influential members of the prees, seems to stand pretty much alone in insisting on the continuation of the arbitrary characteristics of a triumvirate installed iu a spirit of class legis lation if not malevolence that has blinded many good people to the reactionary and despotic phases of the law. That the rail roads should have prospered in spite of ic is owing entirely to the extraordinary crons and consequent enormous value of business flowing from them, but the fact of this exceptional prosperity does not make the law, as it stands, more just, nor close the eyes of the reflecting to the danger of the principle involved, and the probable collapse of this property on ihe first failure in crops, saying nothing of the effect in making capital cautious in putting it self under a domination that tends to cripple its investments and refuses full authority in their management to those- immediately inter ested. Another tendency of the recent success of Mr. Wadley will be to attract more marked at tention to our section from monied quarters, for it shows a vigor of resolution that inspires confidence in our future. Georgia is the cen tral figure in the Southern group of States, as viewed by Northern ob servers, and faith in her prospects is grow ing stronger every hour. Constant accessions are being made now to the enterprising Dart of our population by the removal here of men of means and pluck from the North and West. One firm of extensive connections. Nelson, Barker & Cos,, who for years have been lending money on property in lowa, have transferred tbe’r office to this city within the past few months, and are makiDg loans freely on long time upon every description of sound real property offered them. Their supply of capi tal, furnished by rich men Norih who value their judgment and long experience, appears to be unlimited. These gentlemen express them selves as delighted with our State, which they never visited before last fall, and emphatically announce that they have come to stay, and to cast their fortunes with us, not doubting, as they assure us, that we shall ere long see a de cided looming np in our real estate market. They are much interested in Mr. Fontaine’s movements towards stimulating immigration, and have had long and suggestive conferences with him upon the subject. Our land owners then should not despond, but renew the hope of a better day soon dawning. It will refresh their patriotism to discover that the great vir tues of our mother State are being practically recognized by worthy and discriminating peo ple from distant lands in deciding to make their homes permanently upon our soil. A****. STAR SERVICE. Tbe Hlngftter* Attacking tlie Post* me*ter General. A Washington special to the St. Louis Republican says: Brady’s organ, the National Republican, is playing a great variety of tunes. It had for some days accused the President, and not Postmas ter General James, of being directly responsible for Brady’s removal, but this morning the organ makes a column attack on James, accusing him of du plicity and falsehood, and charging him with having written a letter to the President urging Brady’s prompt displacement. It is noteworthy that the star route ringsters are thus letting up on the President and turning their hot test fire on James. It is also noteworthy that some of those who have been most active and efficient in exposing the 8 win dies are in private expressing more con fidence in the President’s alleged resolu tion to hunt all the rascals down than in James’ firmness and persistence in pur suing them. Doubt is expressed as to whether the Postmaster General will prove to be a big enough man for the emergency, a man of sufficient courage and penetration to hold his own in an aggressive fight against one of the most powerful combination of plunderers ever fastened upon tbe government; but James should be given the benefit of the doubt, and despite the distrust felt here by some of those most earnestly engaged in exposing the swindles, it is but fair to say that tbe Postmaster General has thus far done vigorous and effective work. The fact that all of Brady’s batteries are turned upon him speaks well for Mr. James.” The Wrong Foot Foremost. —A co lossal granite statue of a soldier stand ing at “parade rest” was left in Fair mount Park, Philadelphia, at the close of the centennial exposition which no body seems to own. The persons who placed it on exhibition put in no claim for their property when the show was over, nor did they present it to the Park Commissioners or the Permanent Exhi bition Company. The Philadelphia Press explains why this gigantic work of art was left derelict, with no one to claim it or give it away. The big gran ite soldier is resting on his left foot, with his right foot thrown forward. The military position of “parade rest” is precisely the reverse of this; the weight 'of the body is thrown on the right leg, with the left thrown slightly forward. The sculptor was most probably so mor tified at his mistake, when it was point ed out to him, that he never cared to have his name mentioned in connection with the statue. Light colored Republicans Lave an ex cellent lesson of self abnegation offered them by ex-Senator Bruce, of Missis sippi. He declined the lucrative mission in Brazil, which was tendered him by the President, because he was unwilling io leave his wife at home, and loves her too fondly to take her with him on ac count of the yellow fever and unhealth fulness of that far away country. No such case is of record as to white Re publicans. UP THE ST. JOHN'S RIVER. A GOSSIPY MELANGE FROM THE LAND OF IHE OR tNGF.

Dick S!uart—Fim.l Paragraph*. On Stiaxer Fred de Bary, May 4.—Much has been written and said in praise of the beau ty and splendid appointments of this new and magnificent river steam :r, in mauy respects the finest boat that ever rode the waters of the noble St. John's river. But I doubt if the most flattering praise ha3 done full justice to her merits, as I liava seeu them unfolded to view during a most delightful trip to Sanford aud back. The traveling public owe a deep debt of gratitude to Mr. Fred de Bary for his munifi cent contribution to tht-ir comfort while on the St. John's river. Ail the boats of his “Mer chants' Line” are no.ed for speed and com fort, and are commanded by popular end ex perienced Captains. Jiis cxtensivi invest ments at Enterprise, v/here he hits a ebarmieg winter home in tbs midst of a thrifty orange grove, have done niujli to induce olh- r gen tlemen of wealth to put some of their surplus ca-h into the development of Florida But his best investment, both for himself and the public, is the elegant steamer that bears his honored name, and in the general super vision of which his aeconip'i-'ri- and son, Mr. Adolphe de Bary, is winning high honors ns a young man of thorough ani systematic busi ness habits Associated with him as the General Manager of ihe line is that veteran steamboat man, Commodore Wm. B Watson, whose p easant face is as familiar to Florida visitors as household words. With his head quarters at Jacksonville, he supervises and controls all the movements of the boats of tlie line with promptn and effici mcy. He is not only perfectly familiar with all the most intri cate and tills of steamboat management, but is a gentleman of refined and courteous manners, which make him universally popu'ar with the traveling public, and commands for him the highest respect from all hi* associates. The officers of the steamer Fred, de Bary are among the most popular and best known on the river, aud were selected for this palace of floating beauty because of their eminent fit ness for the various positions filled by them. Of Captain W. A. Shaw I have said so many good things that nothing remains to be added, except to note his cons tantly growing popu larity with his new boat, which always carries a full load of passengers and freight. Savan nah may well be proud of the high reputation which he has wou in ids adopted State. The actin.: purse - , Captain Chas. B. Fenwick, seems to have been born for the position, aud no matter how crowded tbe steamer may be with passengers, he finds a way to provide for all and make everybody feel comfortable and happy. His smiling face and cheerful voice have an inspiraii m in them, and he never fahs to make hims-lf popular with the patrons of the boat, He is as brave and fearless gas he is polite and affable, and under alt circum stances is always the right m-.n in the right place, whether acting as purser or in his posi tion of General Passenger Agent of the line. Chief Engineer F. W. Ellis has been on the river a long time, and I have never met a more t-usty and efficient engineer or agreeable gen tleman. His assistant, Mr. John Piatt, and second officer. Geo. J. Mercier, complete the list, and give the De Bary the best complement of officers of any steamer on the river. FLORIDA IN SPRINGTIME. Ido not propose to give a detail 'd and con nected account of my trip up the river and back again, but simply to note some of the most interesting points of observation. Part of the way was traveled in the night, and con sequently I Gould not take observations. For this season of the year the weather has been delightfully cool, and the breezes on tbe river and lakes rather too strong :or a visitor (like myself; afflicted with rheumatism. Al though the great bulk of Northern and West ern visitors have gone home, tlier is a large river travel yet, mostly composed of people who live here. 1 am forced to believe that the summers in Fiorida are not oppressively hot, and that tlie residents for “all the year round” really enjoy themselves quite as well as they would in the so-called coloer sections of the country. The train to and from Maitland was filled with home people traveling about, and they looked healthy and happy, and talked cheerfully of summer work aud weather. During the middle of the day the heat is rather oppressive, but the rest of the day is cool and pleasant. While Florida may satisfy tfce resident popu lation in summer. Ido not think many winter visitors like to tarry very far into the spring After the rich perfume of orange blossoms fades away from the air, and the trees are robbed of their red ripe fruit, much of the at tractiveness of the “Land of Flowers” is lost to the senses, and a few warm days will serve to thin out the hotels and boarding houses and turn the tide of travel Northward and West ward. Asa settler, properly dressed for the weather, I might be satisfied here in May and June, but not as a visitor. Much outdoor work, however, is going on all over the State, and will be kept up until win ter. I saw a gang of men building the railroad shops at Sanford, and although exposed to the hot sun, they did not appear to mind it as a cool breeze swept over them from the lake. Where so many lakes aud rivers abound, II ink ed on one side by the Gulf and on the other by ihe ocean, laborers out of doors manage to make themselves comfortable durin- the greater portion of the day. New settlers, I should imagine, wou’d not find it desirable to start their improvements in the sum :er A winter spent in Florida will better fit them to get successfully through their summer of out door work. I anticipate that an immense amount of work will be laid out by new settlers next winter and carried through during the summer. RIVE a OBSERVATIONS. At Cabbage Bluff I noticed that the hand some Gothic building erected for DeLand Uty occupied a conspicuous place on the wharf’ having been removed from the former landing some half mile above. The St. John’s and Lake Eustis Railroad Company has built a Hue wharf, and erected a neat depot just above and opposite Volusia In due time I think a little town will sprinc up around it. 6 v A substantial steam saw mill is being built at Green Cove Spring, and wilt no doubt give a new impetus to the building boom that has started this season. At Alexander's Landing, on Lake Beresford, I also noticed a steam saw mill iu full operation, and every indication that lumber was in lively demand for building pur poses. 1 was surprised to see a large three-masted schooner at the wharf in Palatka, and was in formed that it was loaded with iron for the railroad to Gainesville Although I have visit ed Florida for a number of winters, I never be fore saw a large vessel so far up the river The heavy freight, and freight in great quantities, is carried by the Charleston and Savannah steamers as a general thing, although some of it coines to Jacksonville by sailing vessels and is there transferred to river steamers. Senator Delano, of Voiu-ia county, was on the steamer Fred de Bary. and I found him quite enthusiastic over his grand railroad pro ject. He is President of a company that pro poses to construct a railroad from the lonian River country to Palatka. with various branches. Being a practical railroader and a gentleman of great energy of character and marked intelligence, it is safe to predict that Senator Delano will push his enterprise to as speedy a consummation as possible. The sec tion ot country through which the road wiil run is rapidly settling up with a class of thrifty and intelligent people, and they will soon need railroad facilities for market purposes. MINOR TOPICS. The “Merchan s’ Line” of steamers now car ry tfce mails between Palatka and Enterprise, and I was more than pleased to meet again my old friend George L. Fox, who is mail agent on the Fred de Bary. Some six years ago X had a delightful trip with him from Jacksonville to Palatka, and I now find him as young looking and as lively as ever. He still asserts that Hogarth’s Landing is the most beautiful spot on the river. Between Lake George and Lake Monroe the St. John’s river is so crooked in many places that the steamer De Bary finds it difficult to turn the bends wiihout hugging the shore. There are also several long stretches through the marsh lands where two s earners going the same way appear to be headed in opposite di rections. Owing to these numerous curves a steamer is compelled to go over some twenty miles to make ten mi'es on a straight line. Insane people travel about in Florida with the same freedom that exists in some parts of Georgia. Soon after the steamer De Bary left the wharf at Green Cove Soring an insane young man. in his shirt sleeves, was discover ed drumming on the piano in the cabin. He had slipped on board, got a good supper, taktn possession of a gentleman’s state room, an t then seated himse-f at tbe pUno. He was put ashore at Picolata and afterwards made his wny to Palatka, where he is now in jail. Th* re is one good regulation on the Merchants' line of steamers. The shooting of alligators, oirds and turtles is prohibited, and in conse quence game is becoming more plentiful on tlie river. The indiscriminate slaughter car ried on for several years by the passengers on the various steamers had driven away the handsomest birds and the largest alligators, thus robbing an up river trip of more than half its pleasure and nearly all its excitement. A visit to Florida without seeing several big alligators is considered a very dull affair. Some five years ago I wrote a letter from Florida, one of my “Land of Flowers” series, in which I described nearly a dozen railroad and canal enterprises then being generally ducussed. I did not speak very encouragingly of some of those projects, as money was not then being liberally invested in internal im provements in any part of the coun try. Now, however, I find several of these projected railroads partially completed and open for business, while others are either un der contract or about to be commenced. There has been quite a lively railroad boom here during the past year, and if the country es capes a general financial panic during the summer, as I hope it may, Florida will have several new railroads opened for travel next winter. SANFORD AND MAITLAND. At this season of the year Sanford does not present a very lively appearance. The hotel is closed for the season, and the streets deserted by winter visitors. There are, however, msny signs of improvement about the place, and everything indicatee a future full of promise. Already the town #eems to have absorbed Its I older rival, Mellonville, which presents a very | lonely appearance. Capt. M. J. Doyle, its mer chant prince, is now doing business at fc’an : ford. The South Florida Railroad brings a marked Increase in trade to the Sanford merchants. The train out on Thursday night carried a 1 large number of passengers, who were well loaded down with purchases made during the j day. People from Orlando and along the line | of the road can come to Sanford on the morn ing train, attend to their business, make their purchases, and get back to their homes before supper time. Such a schedule as this brings a small crowd of visitors to town every morning. I found the railroad in excellent order, and | the run to Maitland was made in such a short time that I could hardly realize ihe fact. Long -1 wood is at present tlie most important town between Sanford and Maitland, and I noticed a good deal of building going on. including a neat little Episcopal Church edifice. A large amount of freight was put off there, as well as at Snow’s Station. But it is evident that twelve months hence there will be a half dozen or more new and growing towns scattered over this territo-y, and adding very much to the passenger travel and freight business of the road. Maitland has grown very much since mv last visit, and is now quite a pretentious place. The elegant Fluvanna House aud the substan tial Park Hotel have drawn thither a great crowd of visitors during the past winter, and it frequently happene 1 tbat both hotels and all the boarding houses were full, an I no accom modations could be found. This has l p d to the preparation of plans for anew and larger hotel for next season. With an ice fac'ory and a market house, there is no reason why Mait land could not support two more good hotels. There is no more quiet and attractive winter resort in Florida, and a constant increase in the number of visitors each succecdiug winter shows how well pleased such guests are with tbat beautiful region of charming dale lakes. New winter homes are also b* ing established in and around Maitland, which causes many addi tions to the business portion of the town. DEATH OF CAPT. STUART. As the De Bary steamed away from Alexan der s Landing. <m l>ake Bt resford, the second officer ran the (lags up to half mast, and an nounced that Cipt. Richard H. Stuart, the veteran steamboat ccmnnni’er, had died at his bom*', near there, early Monday morning. Few men were bettor known to the travel ing public in Florida. I.oug before the war he was ou the old s eamboat Carolina, with Capt, Coxettor, and commanded the Florid i before Capt. T. E. Shaw (father of Capt. W. A Shaw) took charge of that steamer. He became quite promineu as a commander, when many of the present steamboat captains were youths, aud not a few were infants of tender years. Since t’ e war Capt Stuart had been con nected with the Brock Line of steamers. ad hsd commanded some of th- best boats on the river. A few years ago he superintended the reconstruction of tlie ste truer George M. Bird, which he commanded for a time, tnd was suc ceeded by Capt. Wm A Shaw. Lately, how ever, he had spent much time at bis orange grove on Lake Beresford, a sufferer from rheumatism. Ho was a frank, open-hearts and, blunt man, and his death w ill be deeply re gretted by a wide circle of friends and ac quaintances, who will sympathize with his afflicted family. FINAL PARAGRAPHS. I have never seen so few really good oranges as during the past winter, either in Atlanta or Fiorida. It may be that t have had bad luck in selecting them, but I hear the same com plaint from other persons, who ask, “What has become of tbe good orange ?” Imagine my surprise io find Monday’s Savannah Morning News on sale at Palatka the same afternoon at five o'clock. I could scarcely beli-ve it, and when I brought the paper on board the De Baiy, it created a sen sation that would have done Barauin’s heart good. Look out for a big increase in the circu lation of the News in Florida from this date under the. fast schedule. The only grove in nich I have seen any ripe oranges on the trees, during mv present visit. i3 that of Captain Fenwick, actiDg purser of this steam-r. He has a twenty thousand dollar place at Welaka, on a high bluff, over looking the river, and several thousand oranges still remain on the trees, which shows that the frost did not injure the crop. He has sold about twenty five hundred dollars worth of oranges the present season, and will gather another lot this week. I tried some of bis or anges to-day, and hav9 tasted none better in Florida. He considers his grove a regular “big bonanza.” Chatham. 1 GRAND SUCCESS. A. HIRSCHMAN, -AT -21 BARNARD STREET, REEDY’S OLD STAND. FresH Arrivals DATES. DRIED CHERRIES. OLIVE OIL. DRIED PEARS.
