PAUL, SUNDAY MORNING, FEBBUABY 19. 1882. | The following is the report ot which the above is the contradiction. — Ed. Globe. ] Pittsburgh, Feb. 16.— Hon. A. W. Campbell, editor of the Whesling Intelli gencer, who became prominent in the Chicago convention because he would not vote for Conkling's resolution to sup port the nominee of the convention, has instituted proceeding at Wheeling for a divorce from his wife One night last week he arranged to leave Wheeling on a train departing about 10 o'clock. He missed the train, whereupon he returned to the editorial room of his paper and worked until 3 o'clock in the morning, •when he started home. It seems that Mrs. Campbell, under the impression that her husband had left the city, was enter taining a gentleman who had no business there while the head of the household was absent. Mr. Campbell had hardly got the door of his dwelling unlocked and opened when a man whisked past him out of the house, with riothing on him, but his undergarments, and carrying his clothes in his arms. Mr. Campbell took after the man aud chased him into a liv ery stable two blocks away. Here he had some difficulty in prosecuting his search, as he was opposed by a colored hostler who was friendly to the fugitive; but finally he discovered the man crouch ed down in a dark corner of a stall. Drawing him out into the light, Mr. Campbell, who is a man of powerful physique, jerked him to his feet to get a look at his face. On recognizing him, ho said: "Oh, it's 3*ou, is it? That's all I want to know;" and walked away. Mr. Campbell went to a hotel and spent the remainder or the night. The next day he began suit for 3 divorce from his wife, on the gound of adultery. The man whom he had rnn down in the livery stable was George K. Wheat, a leading merchant of Wheeling, and one of the wealthiest men in the city. Mrs. Campbell is young, very beautiful, and highly educated. Mr. Campbell married her about four years ago, when she was a teacher in the female seminary at Wheel ing. She is his second wife. Her maid en name was Mary Hallowtll. Mr Wheat Ls married. He has several grown-up childien, among whom are four accom plished daughters. The event is the the talk of Wheeling, but, owing to the prominence of the parties concerned, the papers of the city have refrained from mentioning it. RAMPANT RIVERS. Sorrowful Condition of Affair* OB the " liower Mississippi— '£h& Ktver Over Its B*nkp, Fliodlng the Country for Fifrten Miles on Either Side— BaildiA^s Swept Away, Stuck Drowned, Had ftlacli Other Damage— Great Suffering Amon? the Poor. Helena, Ark., Feb. IS.— There is no^bate ment of the disasters that have overtaken the planters of the Mississippi valley, ! caused by the overflowing of the Mississippi river between Memphis and Vicksburg. For three weeks they have been battling, not only with the elements from above (as it has rained almost daily dur ing this period), but, inch by inch, the mighty river has been encroaching: upon them until now it is but a dreary watery waste, extending fully fifteen miles iuland from back to bank. The destruction to dwellings, stock and lands cannot be properly estimated. There have been innumerable breaks in the levees, and the outlook for the future is anything but hope ful. • Cattle and hogs Lave been drowned by the hundred. Barns have been swept away, and ' their contents wasted. Mules and horses are suffer ing, and the loss to planters by these mishaps cannot but have its '-fleet in cramping the fa cilities for putting in a crop for the year. This condition of affairs exists to an alarm ing extent in Crittenden, I>e and Phillips counties, Ark., and Triner and Coahoa- i mer counties, Miss. These are the largest cotton j growing counties in the Mississippi valley, ' and what is true .of others that have suffered , in similar manner. Starvation is threatening many poor people whose homes are on the banks of the streams that have overflowed In some instances cabins can be found wherein are negroes, cows and mules, All gathered under one shelter, awaiting the receding of the river that has in its mad fury driven them to seek shelter by flight to the highland. The last break occurred last ' nieht about 300 yards above Austin, Miss. This will overflow the entire country between Austin and Friar's Point, a distance of thirty-five miles. Louisville, Ky.,Feb. 18.— The river rose all day at the rate of nearly one inch per hour. This evening there are twenty-eight feet of water in the channel and twenty-six feet in the chute on ihe falls. Business on the levee from the foot of Fourth 6treet down is sus pended, as the water is up to and in many of the houses. It is probable that the river will be upon the floors of all houses around the corner of Fourtb street and the levee by morn ing Cincinnati, Feb. 18. — The water at mid night is fifty-two feet above low water mark, and will probably by two feet higher to-mor row, which will probably bring it within' eight feet of the highest ever known, which was in 1832. Water is in the second story of houses in Rat Bow and Sausage Row, which are houses built down in the slope at the east and west extremities of the land-'ng, and it is in the cellars of some houses on Front 6treet. Raid of Saenk Thieves in Minneapolis. [Special Telegram to the Globe.] Minneapolis, Feb. 18.— The whereabouts of the thief who stole S. R. Deardorf's over coat and pocketbook, containing a sum of money, last week, has been ascertained, and he will soon be under the surveillance of the authorities. Sneak thieves were evidently on the ram page last night. Two ulsterett-s, which were left hanging in front of the clothing store of A. Berman, 323 Washington avenue south, were gobbled. A patron of the 'boarding house No. 203 North Second street, was re lievsd of his ulsterette, which he had inadver tently left hanging in an outer hall. His hat was also taken, but for some reason dropped in the yard. A fine ladies' cloak was also stolen from in front of Dieutsch's dry goods store, on Nicollet avenue. No trace of the gang of thieves. tnrt of the Oy6t«r War. Norfolk, Va., Feb. 18.— Governor Cameron and party captured the whole oyster fleet con sisting of six schooners and one sloop, and made prisoners of the crews, six men. Eigh teen shots were fired through the rigging of one schooner and she was chased thirty-five miles towards the capes of Virginia before being brought to. iraofpiuii THE EXPOSE OF SHEPHERD'S PERU ■ ' VI AN SCHEME.

The Peruvian Company. Washington, Feb. 13.— publication here of a list of names prominent in con nection with Shepherd's Peruvian company scheme is the object more of merriment than anything else, even to those whose names are in the list. It appears that the names were used promiscuously, without any authority from the owners of the names. Congressmen Hewitt says he received a circular marked "confidential," and that it informed him the circular would be called for; that he put it in : his desk without giving it any consideration, and subsequently somebody did call for it. lie not only never consented to the use of his name, but never took any notice of this circu lar. The same state of facts apply to other names used. Shepherd eeems to have pursued Guiteau's plan of claiming the ac quaintance and association of public men. If lie knew their names or "address, it was enough. It is already apparent that no seri ous consequences are involved. He sent the circulars to parties ! and without wailing to hear from them entered their names as asso ciates of bis in his chimerical scheme. One of the amusing incidents connected with the publication of these names is that Representative Belmont offered the resolution calling fur submission of the list to the house, and among the names presented ia that of his father, August Belinont. oraau deniai.3.

A Couple of 8u P/tnl Drummer* Abroad [D^adwood Times, Feb. 9.] For some time a couple of St. Paul "guer rillas" have been stopping at the Merchants, and like all "drummers" were full of the es sence of Old Nick. As itY'?ry often happens to thefiQ knights of loud clothes and big trunks, their finances gav^ oat, and while awaiting remittances f.om "the house" all kinds of capers were cut to raise the cigars and un occasional bitof syrup with a little buthin' in it to while away the time. A few nights since one of them while spying around for the lirst time noticed the coin which Mr. Wagner had nailed to one of the pillars running through the office, and O3 he thought out uf reach of everybody, it touching the ceiling. The discovery was communicated to the other and plans laid for capturing the coin. A piece of pasteboard was pro cured and covered with tin-foil, and all was ready for the tchems. In a little while she night clerk w«s called upstairs to build a couple of fires in pome cf the rooms, and the guerrilas concluded their oppor tunity had arrived and proceeded to act. Taking a chair, one mounted it, while Wcrtey Jakeheimer, who was in the plot, nimbly climbed on to his shoulder and in a moment was possessed of the coin and the counterfeit substituted in its place, while the remaining robber steadied the chair and acted as look-out. Long be fore the clerk returned to the office the change had taken place and the coin surrepti tiously obtained "blown in" over the bar at tached to the hotel. Kilmer and Eaton, or "Top and Bottom" as the trawlers are known this * morning, skipped the country and of course are 6afe, while unfortunate Jakey alone remains to bear the bruot of the escapade should Wagner evir find it out. He as yet is ignorant ot the affair. Hiw.ill n Sugar. San Fbancisoo, Fab. 18.— A vessel recently arrived from Honolulu with sugar, consigned to Wm.

Clarke, for merly at the head of the wholesale paper house of Clarke, Friend, Fox & Co., has fled from Chicago, and is know to be in New York. It appears that he not long since bought out the other interests of the firm with promissory notes, aud speedily trans ferred the stock to rival dealers for $175,000, of which $112,000 was in cash or good com mercial paper. Complaints by creditors of the original house caused an investigation by Friend & Fox, which 6howed that $150,000 of the firms paper was still afloat. Of this amount $40,000 was promptly paid and the liabilities will be honestly met. Then Clarke retired from business, and some five weeks ago took an abrupt departure for New York, where he is now employed by the firm of Colburn, Day & Field, No. 17 View street. It seems Clarke five years ago had been given charge of the Chicago branch of the house with a working capital of $200,000. When he de termined to wind things up he represented to his partners that a good deal of the firm's paper was afloat among the Chicago banks, but he proposed to return to the Friend & Fox PaperuuU company its $200,000 working capital in the Chicago firm, with an additional bonus of $50,000, provided the company would stand by him in the event of a cramp. This was agreed to, and soon after the dissolution of the partnership was annonnced. Later accounts show Clarke misrepresented the facts to the Cincinnati partners, for in stead of only a few thousand dollars of the firm's notes being held by the Chicago banks, the firm was responsible to bankers, paper manufacturers and others to the amount of nearly $200,000. This was not known till Weduesday last, when a meeting was held here. Friend & Fox have signified their intention to meet all claims. Some of the pressing claims amounting to $40,000 were immediately settled. Among claims presented were Campbell & Smith, New York, $34,000; the Rochester, N. Y. Paper Co., $10, -000; the Hampshire book paper company. South Hadley Falls, Mass., $8,000; Whitney Paper Co., Holyoke, Mass., $7,000; Patton Mills, Neenah, Wis., 84,000; Batavia, Ills., Paper Co., $3,000. Among the loaal banks it is said the vic timized are the Commerctil National Bank, His., the Fifth National and three others. There are also a largo number of paper mills in various parts of the country whose claims range from $500 to $5,000. The hibtory of Clarke's transaction, according to the Chicago Times, is that about December Ist Mr. Clarke who a few days previously had returned from a ennferencs at Cincinnati with the resident memtx-rs there of his firm, opened negotia tions with the J. W. Butler Paper company, of Chicago, for disposal of the stock of Ciarke, Friend, Fox <fc Co. He represauted that he had purchaepd the interests of the jun ior members of the. firm. The Butler company closed the negotiations by taking the stock anil godd will of the firm at a consideration of #175,000, of which $L 12,000 was paid over to Ciarke in cash and notes. PROBABLT SKIPPED. New York, Fcb 18.— Wm. Clarke, former ly of rhe firm of Clarke, Friend, Fox <fc Co., talked freely early in the day concerning his late transactions in Chicago, claiming every thing was all right and sayiog he courted the fullest icquiry. Some parties here who are 6aid to have been hurt by C l arke'a action say ev er} thing is regular as far as they are concern | cd. In iha evening all attempts to find Clarke were futile. All the information that could be obtained was that he had left town and would rsturn Monday. WATER TRANSPORTATION. Recommendations and Action of the Cin cinnati Chamber of C mmerce. Cincinnati, Feb. 18.— The chamber of commerce to-day adopted the report of the committee to whom was referred the bill pending in congress, introduced by Mr. Town send, of Illinois, making a change iv the law coDcerning bridging of navigable rivers. The report opposes passage of the bill and declares its provisions are antagonistic to the naviga tion of western rivers, and particu larly the Ohio river. The chamber also adopted the report commending the adoption of resolutions declaring that the deepening of the channel of the port of Baltimore is a work of vital importance which shonld be taken up by the United States gov ernment, and that a ship canal connecting the Chesapeake ana Delaware bays, saving 200 miles in distance and twenty-two hours in time of the transportation to the seaboard of the products of the west and couth west, is also a work of national importance calling for aid uf the government. The resolution asks the representatives and senators to advocate the passage of bills to forward these improve ments. A UIaSINO HUSBIND. A Bride J--os-m Her Spoute While Still in Her Wedding Kalinurit. The passengers on the train from Minneapo lis which arrived at the Union depot in this city about 6 o'clock last night, were treated to a first class sensation that had to do with the sorrows of a bride who, ere the perfume hm.l vanished from the orange blossoms, was brought to grief by the sudden and mysterious de par i ure of her husband. Tue mystery, which up to this writing is still a mystery, would afford rich material for s- chapter of romance of extraordinary power and interest. Just before the St. Paul train left Minneapolis yesterday evening, there came on board a bride and groom whose ap pearance indicated that they had just left the altar. He was dapper, and had the brand new look customary to men who have just assumed the responsibilities of married life, and the blush ing bride was arrayed in all the glory of bri dal vestments. After the train had pulled out an uneasy look was observed to shadow the face of the bride, which deepened in painful in tensity as the train moved towards this city. When almost half way to St. Paul the young bride manifested marked symptoms of uneasi ness and it became known that her distress was due to the absence of her husband who had not been eeen since the train started. The sympathy of the passengers was enlisted and the train was searched in ram for the missing benedict. Upon arriving in this city the distress of the bride may be imagined. The cause of his disappearance was unaccountable, and she was annoyed by the terrible apprehension that he might have been thrown from the platform of the cars, while in motion, and injured? or perhaps killed. It was either this or flight. The stery of his strange disappearance was related to the police and railroad officials and measures were taken to discover, if possible, his where abouts. A. Drunken II *nt«r Fatally Responded To. Dsa Moiktes, la., Feb. 18.— Last night two young men, Westky Slater and Thos. Frost, while returning home intoxicated from Carey, got into a quarrel at Mr. Hubbard's house by Slater insisting on starting or he would shoot Frost. Frost seized a gun be longing to Hubbard declared he would shoot also. A senffle followed, in which Slater got possession of the gun. Frost seized the muz ble, pliced it against his own breast and dared Slater to shoot, which be did, Frost djing al most immtdiately. Weather Indications.

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. Passage of tho Immediate Deficiency Bill — Denunciation and Defense of t le Stand ard Silver Dollar. Washington, Feb. 18.— The bill to pro mote the efficiency of the life savin c; service was reported, and the house went into com mittee of the whole on the immediate de ficiency bill, which approbriates $1,822,983. The item of deficiency for public printing gave rise to debate, during whici Atkins stated the great cost of public printing was in a great measure due to the extravigance of the committee on printing of the last con gress. This brought Singleton to h s feet in defense of that committee, of which he was then chairman. Over the clause i a the im mediate deficiency bill, appropriating $75,000 for the construction of vaults in the treasury and sub-treasury, quite an interesting discus sion arose upon the silver question. Mr. Hewitt made a vigorous attick upon the standard silver dollar, characterising it as a cheat and fraud, and fiat money ii its first and most repulsive and objectionable sense, tmd asserting it rendered all commercial trans actions cheating transactions. Messrs. Stephens and Marsh defended the silver dollar, declaring it was the tn c unit of value. They characterized the act of 1873 as an act passed for the purpose of degr iding sil ver, and Marsh declared the cry that the stan dard was fraudulent was false in fact and un true in principle. Mr. Buckner also defended the standard dollar. After further discussion upon various items in the bill, the committee rose and n ported it to the house. Passed — yeas 155; nays 26, Ad journed.

New Yokk, Feb 18. — Cable special from Paris: la an interview Gen. Skobcloff, who is stopping at present in this city, refused to dis claim one jot oi* tittle of anti-Gi rmm ecnti meiits to which he gave utterance in his famous speech. "My position," said the general, "is an independent one. So long as I am summoned in time of war I care nothing for the rest. Yes, I did say that Germany is a common enemy, and I repeat it. I believe that safety lies iv a union of the state with France. The European balaccc of power must be re established, or there will toon be only one power — Germany." The general a)so told the interviewer he had come to Paris entirely of his own accord, and that so far from being in disgrace, the emperor had just had a new ship named after him as a signal mark of favor. INDIGN.VTIOK. Bsrlik, Feb. 19.— A1l the no^s;)aper3 here express indignation at the speech of Gen. Skobeloff to th?

The Germania 6ays it hopes the government will serioafly ask Russia whether she grants her gtneralo leave of absence to preach a crusade iv France against Germany. The National Zeitung advises Austria to bring the struggle with the Herzegovian in surgents promptly to a close. GREAT BRITAIN. London, Feb. 18.— The Times says Glad stone by admitting home rule to be a subject of discussion, abondoned thajstrongest part of of the case against experiments in decentral ization, should not be thought of for a moment. The Standard takes a similar view. The Dtily News maintains that Gladstone has been persistently nr.sundstood. At commons Forster stated while the gov ernment would afford every protection to caretakers in Ireland, it must be allowed to judge as to the measure and decide each case on its merits. He believed the object to be good in system. It would be impossible to give each caretaker a guard of police. In commons, Chaplin stated all the evidence before the agricultural commission tended to show the United States had reached the acme of agricultural prosperity, and the worst had therefore been seen of foreign competition. Nortchcote, referring to Gladstone's utter ances regarding home rule, said they were something between a dream and an election eering move, which though sufficiently char acteristic of Gladstone, were exceedingly dan gerous. The marquis of Hartington ex pressed surprise at the alarm created by Glad stone's remarks. They only meant, he said, parliament should be relieved of local dutits. A firm of London publishers have arranged for a weekly supply of the Irish Worlds and will try conclusions with the government in the event of seizure. RUSSIA..

The Czar was irritated hj the let ter and sent for Privy Councillor Poh douvs seff, prosecutor general of the holy synod, of whom he enquired whother he, the emperor, could dismiss the metropolitan. Pohedones seff replied, "Yes, with the sanction of the holy synod. GKXEKAL FOREIGN.
