An Insane Father Drowns Himself—The Son Loses Ells Lifs in Attempting to Rescue His Father. Skowhkqan, July 5.—Hon. Stephen Co bum, a younger brother of Ex-Gov. Cobum, and a prominent member of the Somerset county bar,while temporarily insane from sick ness and overwork, drowned himself yesterday evening about 7 o’clock. His son Charles fol lowed him, and in attempting to save his father was drowned, Both bodies were recov ered. The suicide of Hon. Stephen Coburn of Skowhtgan by drowning, and the death of his son Charles in attempting to rescue his father, constitute one of the saddest events that has occurred in this state for a long time. Mr. Co burn has long been in delicate health, but has never shown any signs of insanity. He was a member of the late Republican State Conven tion in Portland, aad served on the committee on resolutions. The dispatch sys Mr. Coburn was temporarily insane from sickness and over work, and that the shocking affair occurred Tuesday evening at 7 o'clock. Mr. Coburn is a native of Skowhegau, and is a younger brother of Ex-Governor Coburn. He was graduated from Waterville, now Colby, Uni versity, in 1839, Btudied law and was admitted to the bar in Somerset county,where hehad|for years a large practice. Of late he has attend ed to little law business, being occupied in lit. erary pursuits and in attending to some of the details of the large business of Ex-Governor Coburn. For many years he has given much attention to philology. He was a genial man, who by his kindness and rare purity of char acter and purpose had won the confidence and esteem of all who knew him. His excellent judgment in matters pertaining to law, and his integrity, in which all had confidence, ena bled him to settle many disputes. He was, in fact a peacemaker. Few men have been more respected and admired by those who know him best than was Mr. Coburn. During his 11/0 he hold many positions of honor and trust. fn I860 he was elected to succeed Hon. Israel Washburn, Jr., as Representative in the 36th Congress to complete an ,unexpired term. For many years he was an active member of the Baptist church, and in his quiet way and by his blameless life did much to advance its! in terests. Mr. Cobarn was a genial, compan ionable man, full of information, and kind even to a weakness. Those in want never appealed to him in vain. He was nearly sixty years of age. Charles M. Coburn, his son, who at once showed his devotion to his father and his hero ism by losing his own life to save that of his father, was about 22 years of age, and a young man of rare promise. He was graduated from Colby University last year at the head of a large class. He possessed the rare tempera ment of his father and was a general favorite in a large circle of friends. Mr. Stephen Co burn leaves a wtflow, tue daughter of the veucrauiO Jf&toer Miller of Slr/vntiMifrATi ql well known Baptist clergyman, and two daugnrers; the eldest of whom was graduated from Colby in 1878. This sad affair casts a gloom over .the entire community where the dead were so well known and generally respected. PREMATURE PYROTECHNICS. A Party of Boys Blown Up by Fireworks Lkwistou, July 5.—Two Knowles boys and a Laughton boy by some means got posses sion of aquautity of fireworks this morning, and while experimenting an oxplosion oc curred breaking the windows and starting out one side of the house. All were badly injured the Laughton boy criticaJy. LATER. It appears that a box of packages of powder used in the fireworks exhibition, was left on the ground Tuesday night. The three lads were on the ground early this morning and discovering the box took it home. With the powder were some pieces of fase, all of which they lighted and threw out of the window They were not quick enough with the second and it set fire to the powder in the box. The explosion blew out the glass from the house and bulged out one side badly and burned all the boys. Richard Laughton, aged ten years, was the most seriously hurt, and probably can not recover. His injuries are in part internal. Joseph Knowles, aged 15, and George Knowles 12, are seriously burned, but are comfortable this afternoon. A Sudden Death. (Special Dispatch to the Press.) Liminoton, July 4.—Mrs. Esther Strout aged 87 years, widow of the late Simeon Strout, died very suddenly this foronoon.

(By Associated Press.) Two Fishermen Drowned. Abbott Village, July 5.—Henry Chapin and Milton Patten, of Monson, were drowned accidentally by the upsetting of their boat while fishing yesterday.

Rockland, July 5.—Last Monday night when the boys began to celebrate, a young man named James Campbell engaged in a scuffle with Alonzo Nash for possession of a gun. In the course of it the gun was discharged with the muzzle pressed againBt Campbell’s stom ach. The wound inflicted is two inches in diameter, and his condition is very critical. The Granger Celebration at Foxcroft. Dgveb, July 4—The Grangers of Piscataquis county met in all day social gathering at the new and beautifnl camp-meeting grounds of the Methodist Society in Foxcroft today. Af ter the reading of the Declaration of Indepen dence and of the Declaration of Principles of the Government of the Order of Patrons of Husbandry, and the assemblage had been put in good humor by means of a bountiful colla tion and good music, happy speeches were made by a number of gentlemen prominently connected with the association. The non. Frederick Robie of Gorhpm, Grand Master of the Stato Grange, and Republican candidate for Governor, was presented, and delivered a strong aud carefully prepared address of an hour aud a half to a large and enthusiastic au dience. He analyzed and described the prin ciples and high aims of the Order, emphasizing the value of the organization, and harmony in accomplishing the work of enlightenment and permanent progress. He denounced monopo lies in true granger style, but did not make a single political allusion. Col. Robie was very warmly received and is making hosts of friends. New National Bank in Houlton. Washington, July 5.—The Comptroller of the Currency has authorized the First Nation al Bank of Houlton, Mo., to commence busi ness with a oapital of §60,000. An Old Oration bv Daniel Webster. Fryeburo, July4—Daniel Webster’s Fourth of Juiy oration, which he delivered there 80 years ago, and which was recently found in a junk store in Bo-ton and published, was read at the celebration here today, and its eloquent periods brought out loud applause. It is a wonderful production coming from a young man of 20 years. A Prominent Saco Lawyer Dead. Beddeford, July 5.—Edward Eastman, Esq., a promint lawyer of Saco, diedj this forenoon after a sickness of several months with disease of the liver. He was 33 years of age and leaves a widow and one child. XLVIIth Congress-lst Session. SENATE. Washington, July 5. Mr. Frye presented the memorial of the board of trade of Maine asking for a commis sion to consider the mercantive marine and its necessities. He thought the necessity for such a commission was beyond question, but he was unable to indicate the appropriate reference of the memorial as no committee of Congress bad special jurisdiction of or took the slightest in terest in the commercial marine. The chair suggested reference to the com merce committee but the paper finally went to the committee on finance. The amendment was adopted. The House bills appropriating $75,000 for a public bnildin r at Dallas, Texas, and granting condemned cannon to several grand army posts were passed. Mr. Cameron of Wisconsin moved to dis pense with the calendar for the purpose of taking up the bill for the relief of Be*. Holli day. The Senate agreed to consider the bill. Motions to postpone them wero supported by opponents of the bill, headed by Messrs. Cockrell, Plumb and Butler. 1 he bill finally went over until to-morrow. The bankruptcy bill then came up, but on motion of Mr. Ingalls who dwelt upon the. lateness of the session and pressure of public business the bill and amendments were made special order for the first Wednesday in De cember. me benate bill to create the Territory of Pembina was taken up. An amendment was offered by Mr. Hale prohibiting certain laws of the Dakota legislature, in relation to the alleged repudiation of Yankton county bonds, from being made applicable to the proposed uew territory. A discussion followed in which Mr. Hale denounced the action of the Dakota legislature. • Mr. Vest said he wou[d never vote to admit a territory whose people were stained with re pudiation Obnoxious laws should first be re pealed. Without concluding Mr. Vest yielded for an executive session. Mr. McMillan reported with amendments the river and harbor bill and gave notice that he would move its consideration at the close of the morning business to-morrow. The bill and amendments were ordered printed. Adjourned. HOUSE. The bill appropriating §100,000 fjr a public building at Shreveport, La., passed. Mr. Aldrich sf Illinois introduced a bill to repeal the act of 1875 adding 25 per cent, to the duty on sugar and molasses. Referred. The House at 12 o’clock wont into commit tee of the whole, Mr. Page of California in the chair, on the naval appropriation bill, the pending qnestion being an amendment by Mr. Reed to the paragraph for a bureau of cou Btruc'ion and repair. (The amendment is to strike out the proviso which limits to §400, 000; the amount to be applied to repairs of wooden ships. Also to make the clause read so that the expenses of such repairs shall not exceed 30 per cent, of the estimated cost of to §1,500,000. Mr. Harris of MassacbnaAtte argued against the amendmont. Messrs. Talbot of Missouri and Robeson of New Jersey also argued against the amendment. Mr. Belmont of New York expressed his non-concurrence with a former statement of Mr. Robeson that the piosenceof an ironclad at Callao would have prevented the dismem bermemnt of Peru. With the diplomatic poli cy of the State department a hundred iron clads would not have had their effect; that this policy had contrived in the short space of six months not only to gamble away the influ ence of the United States in South America but actually to open the way to direct Euro pean interference by giving a color of necessi ty to that interference. In tnis connection he reviewed briefly the action of Secretary Evarts and of Secretary Blaine, commenting unfavorably on the lat er and expressing a de sire for a verdict of the House of such stew ardship. After some further discussion Mr. Harris offered an amendment providing that any po?< lion of th» appropriation of §175,000 not re vessels or war. Tbe amendment offered by Mr. Atkins re ducing the appropriation to §1.500,000 was re jected and that offered by Mr. Harris adopted. The paragraph relating Jo a bureau of steam engineering was then taken up. (It appropri ates §2,200,000, not more than §400,000 of which is to be applied to mere repairs of ma chinery of wooden ships. It directs the appli cation of 81,000,000 of the amount to an iron clad monitor. Mr. Hewitt moved to strike out the last pro viso, which after some debate was reje cted. He then moved an amendment requiring work on monitors to be given out by contract to the lowest bidders. This, together with a similar amendment by Mr. Holman was also rejected. The amendment of Mr. Harris (in reference to completion of monitors) was adopted. Mr. Robeson moved as an additional section to the bill a provision that officers of the navy may be required to perform such duties at navy yards and stations as are now performed by civil employes; and no officer of the navy shall be employed on shore duty except where the Secretary of the Navy shall determine such employment is required by putlic inter ests and shall so state in the order of employ ment, and all other officers not at sea shall be put on leave of absence or waiting orders or on furlough as the Secretary of the Navy may di rect. After discussion the amendment was adopted. Mr. Reed offered an amendment providing that naval constructors and assistant naval constructors may be appointed from civil life. Adopted. The committee then rose and reported the bill and amendments. The previous question was seconded and then without disposing of any of the amendments the House adjourned. WASHINGTON. The Case of Commodore Shufeldt. Washington, July 4.—It is stated at the Navy Department that the diplomatic mission of Commodore R. W, Shufeldt to China is completed, and it is not necessary to detail an other officer to that duty. A few days ago a telegram was received from Commodore Shu feldt, stating that he had completed his mit sion to China and asking to be placed in com mand of the Asiatic squadron. The Navy De partment officials are undoubtedly displeased with his extra-official conduct in China, but do not admit that such was the cause of his recall. Secretary Chandler says that tbe point raised in this case, that because Commodore Shufeldt had accepted a diplomatic trust he had under the law forfeited his position in the naval ser vice. is not a good one. According to his in struction of the law in question it applies only to a permanent appointment in the diplomatic service. The Assassin’s Body. The Star says Guiteau’s body was without doubt removed to the army medical museum Monday night, but officials there and at the jail refuse all definite information. Warden Crocker says “If the body is not at the army medical museum it will be in a day or two.” Relief for our Shipping Interests. The petition presented to the Senate today by Mr. Erye from the Board of trade of Bath Maine, relativo to the ship building interests of the country urges the appointment of a com mission to sit during recess of Congress for the purpose o£ inquiring into the wants of this branch of industry and to report to congress such measures “as would tend to the relief of this great native industry.” The River ana Harbor BUI. The river and harbor bill as reported from the Senate commerce committee today shows an increase of little more than $2,000,000 over the amount appropriated by the Honse bill. It appropriates in round numbers $19,400,000. Among the items increased are the following: For improving the harbor of Plymouth, Mass., $9000; improving Cacheco river $1$,000; Among the new items is one of $52,000 for the harbor of Refuge of Wood’s Hole. Nominations Confirmed. The Senate today confirmed the following nominations: Hezekiah G. Wells, Presiding Judge of the Court of Commissioners on the Alabama claims. Jas. Harlan and Asa French, Judges of the Court of Commissioners on the Alabama claims. Daniel W. Fesseneen, Clerk of the Court of Commissioners on the Alabama claims. MASSACHUSETTS. Commencement at Williams College. Williamstown, July 5.—The commence ment exercises of Williams College occurred to-day. The graduating class numbered forty. The honorary degree of LL. D. was conferred upon Prof. William Porter of Beloit College and Eugene Schuyler, Minister to Tnrkey. Riotous Convicts. Boston, July 4—The rebellious actions of prisoners at tne Concord State prison continu ed this afternoon, and had not.entirely ceased at a late hour to-night. The warden is firm in his determination not to grant the holiday de manded, and says he will put the riotous pris oners on bread and water to-morrow if they do not become and remain quiet. An unknown French girl about 14 years old was struck by an express train on the Eastern road at Salmon Falls, N. H., Yesterday noon, killing her instantly. ANOTHER HORROR. Two Excursion Steamers Col lide. ONE OF THEM SUNK AND MANY LIVES LOST. Mingo Junction, Ohio, July i.—The steam er Scioto, with about 500 passengers, collided with the John Loomis in the middle of the river to-night, sinking the Scioto in fifteen feet of water, only the pilot being visible. One of the survivors says the Scioto was coming up the river under a full head of steam, and when about half a mile from Min go Junction tbe John Loomis was sighted coming down. The pilot of the Scioto whistled for th6 channel, but owing to a misunderstand ing both boats took the same side, the Loomis striking the Scioto and sinking her in fift en feet of water in three minutes from the time of the collision. The scenes on the Scioto were heartrending and the life straggles were frightful to behold. The Loomis was only slightly disabled and went at work at once to save those on board the unfortunate Scioto. This task was rendered easier by tbe bright moonlight, and no doubt many lives were saved from this reason. It is now believed that the first reports were exaggerated and that the loss of life will not exceed twenty persons. WHEELING, W. Va., July 5.—It is impossi ble to ascertain, or even guess intelligently, the number of persons drowned. Capt. Thom as’s Bon Dan is missing, and a deck hand, name unknown, was also drowned from the Scioto. The rest of the crew are safe. The first man taken out of the water was watchman Charles McCoy. The Lomas struck the Scioto on the port side, fifteen feet from the bow, and made a large hole, through which the hull filled rap idly and sank at once. The boat is now lying on the bottom of tbe river, the water two feet deep in her cabin. Statement by the Scioto's Engineer. Charles Page of Marietta, Ohio, the assist ant engineer of the Scioto, said that they started from East Liverpool at 6.30 o’clock in the morning with a large excursion party, who were off for a Fourth of July frolic, and that they went as far down the river as Mound s ville, arriving there about 1.30 in the after noon. After lying there about two hours we started for boms, stopping at Wheeling and Martin’s Ferry. The people hailed us all along the river, but the captain said we had enough on board and refused to take any more, except at Steubenville, where we took on sev erai. vv nen we comueu wuu rue l.ouias, ua near as I can judge from what I heard people saying, we had on board 400 at least and prob ably 500. I was on watch at the time of the accident, and when the boats whistled for passing I noticed there was something wrong, but thought nothing of it and stepped out on the dock for a second, when I saw the Lomas right on us. I rushed back to my engine, obeyed the bell to go back, which was imme diately followed by a bell to stop, and then seeing that the boat was fast sinking, the en gineer and I threw a skiff into the river, and then I ran after my coat. When I got back the skiff was so full of poor, stricken people that I knew it would sink, so I jumped in the river and struck out for the West Virginia shore. In looking around aw I swam I saw a sight that fairly took the life out of me. The water was black with struggling humanity, and the expression of the faces was the most terrible that you can imagine. Men, women and children were crying for help, and some of the screams so unnerved me that I could scarcely swim, but the current was strong, and as I struck out with all my might I soon got out of sight of the crowd in the water, there being but two boys near me, who managed to reach the shore in safety with a little help from me. We swam about a mile altogether, and when we reached the shore it was almost impossible for any of us to stand up. As to how many were lost I can form m idea, nor do I know what caused the accident or who is to blame. An Eye Witness's Story. Wheeling, W. Va., July 4.—Arthur Mc Neelly, who lives at Cross Creek, was an eye witness to the collision. He was standing in his fiont door, immediately opposite where the collision occurred. It was about 8 o’clock.The Lomas, in passing the Island chute, whistled for the preference of sides, and as near as he can judge it was three minutes before the Sci oto answered. Neither steamer appeared to sheer off, and almost immediately the collision occurred. He continues: General confusion followed, and then saw people jumping from the hurricane deck and all parts of the steam er. As far as I could see the Lomas struck the Scioto forward of the flue, over the bow. The Scioto sank almost instantly, and the Lomas backed up at once, ran to the Ohio shore and lauded her passengers, and then returned to the wreck. The crew and officers of the Lo andsucceeded in land ing over 400, making several trips, and contin uing to work as long as there were any who de sired to leave. As soon as I saw the accident, I jumped into my skiff and started for the wreck. When I got there I got five within a distance of twenty feet, and there were two other skiffs below me picking them up, but I don’t know how many they got. They were hallooing all over now, and there appeared to be a greet many in the water, but it was too dark for me to tell the number. I then took the parties I had rescued to the Ohio side, and by that time the Lomas had landed her party and returned to the wreck. I had just come home from work when the boat came past, and couldn’t tell how many were on board; but from what the parties who landed told me, there were from 650 to 700 on the boat. From the run of the conversation of those who had been landed I gathered that from 500 to 550 were landed. Three women were carried ashore and died after they had been rescued. Two little toys and the assistant engineer of the Scioto, were rescued and stopped at Cox’s. Thi assistant engineer told me he thought ma ny lives must have been lost, as the lower decks were crowded and the boat sank imme diately. Names of the Victims. Steubenville, Ohio., July 5.—Hundreds of people are attracted to the scene of the wrecked steamer Scioto, some in search of missing loved ones.

SPORTING. The Intercollegiate Race at Lake George. Lake Geoeqe, N. Y., July 4.—The inter collegiate race is over with, and the spectators who witnessed it this afternoon were treated to probably one of the finest aquatic contests that ever occurred in this country. Bowdoin and Cornell were first at the line, but the race was delayed over three-quarters of an hour on account of the inexcusable delay of several of the other crews. The officials were Henry G. Garfield, referee; judge and time-keepers, J. E. Eustis for Wesleyan, Samuel Lloyd tor Princeton, Clemens Jones for the University of Pennsylvania, Davis Michael for Bowdoin and C. S. Francis for Cornell; judge at the finish, William Benedict of Troy. It was not until 6 o’clock that the boats drew into line. At the send-off, Cornell took the water first, and within a dozen strokes had a lead of half a length, followed by Bowdoin, Princeton, University of Pennsylvania, and Wesleyan in the order named. The Cornells gradually in creased their lead until at the eighth of a mile thero was clear water between their shell and that of Princeton, who by a gallant spurt had passed Bowdoin. The strokes of the several crews during the first minute were: Prince ton 36, Bowdoin 45, University of Pennsyl vania 36, Wesleyan 45 and Cornell 45. The half-mile buoy was reached in 2.45, with Cor nell still leading. The Wesleyans here slight ly increased their stroke and secured second position, not over half a length behind the t eaders. The University of Pennsylvania crew obtained third place, while Bowdoin, sudden ly weakening and going to pieces, brought up in the rear behind Princeton. The steering of Bowdoin was very poor, possibly owing to the fact that one side of the boat was much stronger than the other, and the referse frequently warned them back to their own water. Three quarters of a mile from the start the Ithaca was still in front, with the Wesleyan close at hand. It soon became apparent, however, to all the spectators,that something was wrong in the Cornell boat, which suddenly veered to one side. It was discovered that No. 3 was completely used up, and Cornell soon fell to the rear. The mile-flag was passed in 6m. 378. with Priuceton's shell half a length in front of the Wesleyans. The latter crow w as about the same distance in advance of the Pennsylvania. Bowdoin was fourth, but wild steering on its part soon gave the Maine boys the last position to guard, but they kept it to the finish. At this point it was still anybody’s race. On the referee’s steamer it was difficult to determine who was the leader a quarter of a mile from the finish, but it was thought that Princeton held the honor of a few feet, with the Wesleyans a good Becond, the University of Pennsylvania third, Cornell fourth, and Bowdoin fifth. At about one-eighth of a mile from the line the Pennsylvanians astonished everybody with a burst of speed, rapidly closing up with and passing the Wesleyans, who in the meantime had forged by the Princetons, and crossing the finish winners by two lengths. It was impossible to take the time of the first crew, as the signal of the judge at the finish could not be seen by the timekeeper. It was about 9m. 35s., Wesleyan 9m. 40s., Princeton 9m. 53s., Cornell 9m. 55s., Bowdoin 9m. 57s. Base Ball on the Fourth. At Buffalo—Morning, Buffalos, 9; Worces ters, 5.

Waiy er Blaine’s Resignation. Mr. Walker Blaine, Third Assistant Secre tary of State, has resigned,his resignation hav ing taken effect June 30. His retirement is entirely voluntary. Mr. Blaine had served just a year. It is a historical fao t of some in terest that the last entry made by President Garfield in his diary before he was shot con tained a record that he had appointed Walker Blaine Third Assistant Secretary of State without auy suggestim from his father or his knowledge ot the intention until it was com municated to him; and that this had been done not only in recognition of the abilities of the sou but as a mark ot allectiou and esteem for the father. Mr, Blaine has made au excellent record in the place of Third Assistant Secretary. His duties in South America, especially when ac companying Mr. Trescott, called for the exer cise of diplomatic qualities which have more than demonstrated the fitness of the appoint ment. , , Alvey A. Adee, Chief of the Diplomatic Bureau, is mentioned for the place. Mr. Adee has been for a number of years iu his present post and is abundantly well qualified for the other.
