The Jeannette board of inquiry convened to day at the Navy Department) and Engineer Melville resumed his evidence, jp response to the pending question, “What efforts were made to rescue DeLong’s party?’’ At the ad journment of the eourt Thursday, Melville had detailed the progress of his search and his arrival at Matvai where he passed the night in a but which had been occupied by Noros and Ninderman. Resuming, the witness said that the next morning one of the natives picked up a waist belt which he (witness) recognized as one that had been made in the fire room of the Jeannette. This was the 10th of November, 1881. As |Nor03 and Ninderman had their belts with them at Bulun the witness supposed that the but must have been occupied by one of DeLong’s party and conjectured that Indian Alexy might have been sent ahead by DeLong as Noros and Ninderman had been, and that he had slept in the hut. Preparation was made to start when the na tives announced that they could not go any further, not having provisions. The witness aBked how far it was td the nearest village and they replied 150 versts to the northwest. They refused to go, but witness insisted and finally a start was made.

The Beecher Trial, New Yoke, Nov. 20.—The trial of the suit of Samuel Wilkeson against Rev. Henry Ward Beecher for damages for breach of contract for failing to complete his Life of Christ, was re sumed in the Supreme Court this morning. Mr. Beecher was ealled to the stand by the plaintiff’s counsel. He did not remember having in 1876 received, read or signed papers shown him, nor did he recollect having heard read a modified copy of it. He did not be lieve that any demand for copy was made since 1876. He knew they wanted copy and they knew they could not get it. He under stand that copy was to be furnished them, but there was no limitation of time. He had repeated conversations with Ford & Co. as to the expediency of issuing the book in 1874 when Plymouth church was invaded and presented by various councils (referring to the Congregational council) the gen tlemen of the firm were entirely in accordance with me as to the impossibility of putting out the second volume of the Life of Christ. The counsel for plaintiff then declared his case closed, and Beecher’s counsel renewed his motion to dismiss the case. Judge Barrett granted the metion to dismiss and made an ( rder allowing Mr. Beecher S3.1) extra allowance. Upon application of plaintiffs’ counsel a stay of 30 days was granted. Collyaron Whittier. Rev. Robert oollyer read Whittier’s poem, “The Reformer" instead of a passage of Scrip ture in the Church of the Disciples last even ing. In his sermon he praised Whittier as the purest and sweetest sivger of the time and for his manful fight for the black man. “They went to Longfellow,” said he, “and repre sented to him that if he eliminated abolitionism from bis poems they would sell better in the South. Longfellow consented. They said the same thing to Lowell, and he did what they wished. But when they made such a proposition to Whittier they met with a con scientious and valorous refusal." The Shipping Commission. The first witness examined this morning be fore the joint executive committee appointed to inquire inte the cause of the decline in American shipping was Matthew McEleny who corroborated previous testimony given. Matthew Nelson spoke of the great risks in volved in loaning money on vessels. He thought no bankers would like the risk. It was impossible to establish shipping in a high tariff country. All laws prior to 1812, he thought, should be remodelled and the ship ping bill abolished as being unconstitutional. He advocated a law to extend federal control over pilots, as their excessive fees keep many vessels from New York. If Americans, he said, were allowed to purchase ships where they choose there would be an Increase in Ameri can shipping, though time would be needed to build it up. If Americans could buy and sell ships in the markets of the world, he thought that within five years theBhip owning industry would be increased largely. Surgeon John B. Hamilton testified that American sailors are shipoed in bad condition and become patients in foreign hospitals. He advocated the abolition of advance pay. Capt. Michael Daley recommended that ships be purchased whenever they could be got cheapest and thought be could sail a vessel of 1500 tons as cheaply as an English vess. 1 could be run. He was in favor of doing away with three months’ pay plan and believed in the abolition of all consular fees. Ex-Congressman Calkens declared that he was opposed to a rebate, and preferred Ameri can material to foreign for ship building and believed in relief by way of bounty. He was in favor of subsides and did not believe in buyiug ships abroad. John Roach testified that in the last ten years he had built $10,000,000 worth of iron vessels in foreign trade. He advocated home shipbuilding. England has $680,000,000 of her capitalists money invested in shipping. This could never be done in this country. Our capitalists are chary of putting their money in our shipping interests. At this point Mr. Robeson desired to be excused from further service on the committee, as he would have to leave owing to a death in his family. Con gressman Candley so signified his intention of leaving. Should be do so the committee will be left without a quorum. Death of aWell Known Scientist. Prof. Henry Draper, well known in scientific circles, died this morning, aged 65. Murder and Suicide. Niagara, Ont., Nov. 20.—Claude Lester an Englishman, aged 20 who has been for a year in the States returned today and went to the house of a former employer named Smith call ed his son aged 111 out and shot him and then shot himself.

Boston, Nov. 20.—At an early hour this morning the night managers of the Western U nion Telegraph office at Chicago stated that their wires were again seriously affected by the aurora, and the duplex and quad-duplex systems of working had to be abandoned on many of their eastern wires. The trouble seems to be general. A New York dispatch dated 10.30 a. m., says the aurora is again disturbing telegraphic communication to-day. Its effects are more particularly felt between New York and Chica go and there is considerable trouble also on the Eastern and Southern wires. The Atlantio cables are also affected. Gloucester Fishermen opposing the Fish Combination. Gloucester, Not. 20.—The Gloucester had dock fleet have made a Btand against the fresh fish combination ia Boston. On Satur day the fleet received 4 cents a pound for their haddock. Yesterday there were eight arrivals at this port with about 300,000 pounds. Half a dozen of them went to Boston this morning and were surprised at receiving an offer from the Exchange of only $1.25 per 100 pounds. They refused to sell, and telegraphing the owners were ordered to bring their fish to this port, where a portion of them have been sold for 8130 and 81.40 per 1CD pounds: The oth ers will be cured. There is a disposition on the part of the fishermen to maintain their ground against the combination. Advices from Philadelphia report that the fish trade there refuses to join the Boston and New York dealers in the movement for the control of the market and will patronize parties outside of the ring.

LABOR TROUBLES. Not a General Strike. Pittsburg, Nov. 20.—The strike of the rail road coal miners today is not as general as they expected. Out of 8000 miners only 1600 are idle The operators, in four pits conceded the ad vance demanded, but in the other fifty-one the operators are firm and say they will close down rather than grant an advance as the market will not justify it. Steel Works to be Closed. CmCAeo, Nov. 20.—The Joliet Iron and Steel Company has determined to close its work on or before Deo. 1st, and other Western com panies making Bessemer steal expect to follow suit speedily, thus throwing out of employment at least 20,000 skilled and unskilled workmen. Two reasons are assigned for this action. The Joliet company give as its reason for this step the fact that a majority of Congress hostile to the maintenance of the present tariff has been elected, and they propose to take in sail while they have time, and at a slack season.

Morrill, Eeq., speak of the lower forms of animal life. Mr. Falter managed the calcium light and threw upon the screen a drawing ef the lowest form, called the Amoeba. It is a mere speok of jelly, irregular and al ways changing. It can best be described negatively as it has no definite system of cir culation or respiration; it has no eye nor ner vous system yet it is capable of seizing proper food and throwing itself around it,thns making a stomach of what before had been doing dnty as feet. Drawings of many species of this odd family were shown to the audience by Mr. Fuller. Next in order come the Foramenifera; these secrete chalk from the salt water in which they live and make shells or skeletons in many quaint forms. The immense chalk deposits of Europe, thousands ef miles in length, are composed of theso miscroscopic shells. The Infusoria form another group; these have a month, rudimentary canal for digestion and constant locomotive appendages. They are interesting on account of certain wheel like processes which keep in motion continual ly and supply the animal with water and nourishment. We now leave the lower or nnorganized forma and come to the Radiates. The Hydroids bo common in oar harbor appear like small shrubs, they have a well defined month, hair- ! like. tentacles, and a stomach cavity; they reproduce by a budding process and their young are not bydroids but jell; fishes which in tnrn produce not jelly fishes bat bydroids so that any indit idnal resembles its grand parents bat is unlike its parents. These animals are the first or lowest that can be said to have a nervous system, Many forms of jelly fish were shown and Mr Fuller with his usnal ingenuity was able to place two species of living jelly fish in his lantern and so exhibit the actual motions of his specimens The pea anemone, star fish and sea urchin belong in this division. The speaker ealled attention to the fact that we have in Portland and vicinity the subjects for vast stndy. President Wood followed Mr. Morrill by giving a sketoh of his visit to Bald Head, York, Maine, where is the immense trap dike described in Dr. Jackson’s report. Dr. Wood also found there a little flower called the poor man’s weather glass, elaborate drawings of which were thrown on the screen. The hope was expressed that the society might spend a field day there next summer. Abial M. Smith and Marcellus P. Prince were nominated for active membership. Statistics of Portland Churches. Mr. E.
