A Missi~sippi Monster.
A Mississippi river towboat captain relates an
experience on a re'ent trip which easts into the
shade all previous observations of sea mon
sters, hydras and chimeras dire. He was tow
ing astring of coal barges just above Memphis,
Tennessee, when he heard a loud puffing noise
up the river, and presently a monster hove in
sight which caused his blood to curdle and his
hair to stand on end. He describes it as resem
bling a vast snake, with a bull dog's head and a
pelican's bill about ten feet long, lashing the
water into foam with its enormous tail
and spouting oblique streams of water
forty feet high. The creature's neck
was covered with burnished scales; from
the top of the head hung a long, greenish mane
and immense fins projected from the back and
sides. Again and again the monster attacked
the barge, which fortunately had become de
tached from the others, with a violence frivhtful
to witness, plunging its beak again and again
into the boat's sides and making the river boil
in its mad fury. Its rage was soon vented,
however, and with a bellow which made the
boat quiver. it plunged beneath the surface and
shot down the channel with remarkable speed.
On examining the shattered barge, the captain
found a splinter from the monster's bill embed
ded in the timbers which he says resembles
ivory, and is as hard as steel.
Senator Cameron and the English Mis

WASHINGTON, Oct. 26.-Conkling said to-day,
in reference to the refusal of Evarts to appoint
Simon Cameron to the English mission when
he was recommended by the entire Pennsyl
vania delegation, that if this kind of thing was
to go on it would be bad for the Administra
tion, and that unless Key, Schurz and Evarts
are put out of the Cabinet within sixty days,
there would be very little of the Republican
party left to work for or live for.
A member of the Cabinet said to-day that the
nomination had not been nor would it be ten
dered to Cameron. It seems tolerab'y certain
that it will !a offered to either Morton McMi

A SABBATH TRAGEDY.
A Negro shot by a White Man and Mor
tally Wounded.
At twenty minutes past twelve o'clock vester
day, at Burke's grocery, corner of Dryades and
Girod streets, a negro, named Dennis Henry wae
offered up a bloody sacrifice at the hand of a
white man, named Wm. Reardon, a clerk of Mr.
Burke. The facts, as told to a DxaocRAT re
porter, are as follows:
Bome few days ago Mr. Burke employed Dennis
Henry to haul some lumber to be used in erect
ing a new building somewhere in the vicinity of
his store. On Saturday Mrs. Burke entrusted a
negro named Joe Bannon to carry some food to
Henry. Bannon not having had a square meal
that day and not being certain that he would
strike anything to eat before night,
MADE SHORT WORK
of the food entrusted to him.
Henry having been informed of the fact that
Bannon had eaten the food sent to him, made up
his mind that he would hold him to strict ac
count. Yesterday both men met in Burke's
grocery, and Henry accused Bannon of having
stolen his dinner. This caused harsh remarks
to pass between the two men, and a fight ensued.
As the men were scuffling Beardon stepped from
behind the counter and ordered both of them out
of the house, and backed up his demand with an
ax handle which he held in his hand.
Bannon left, but Henry deolined to leave.
Beardon then attempted to put Henry oat, and a
squfile ensued. After truggling for veral mo
meats Beadon managed to wrest htOs1ZU ea

Our friend Julio has come bask from a tow in
the Teobe country, and has brought home irve
landcapee illustrating some of the fairest points
of view in that beautiful country. The largest is
particularly ohraoteristio of the Tech*, with its
shadowy trees overhanging with luxuriant foliage
the placid stream, One small landscape appeared
to us as combining many elements of rest worth.
It represents a seene in the environs of Prmakile;

Neat, graceful and artistlo is what we could say
in a condensed form of the entertainment of the
Berger family after attending their first per.
formance at the St. Charles Theatre last night.
Before going further we take pleasure in predict.
log for them a handsome run, for it will reach the
ears of our art-loving people with the beet
grounds for credit that there is for their appre
ciation at the St. Charles Theatre, one of the
ohastest and most charming entertainments that
they have ever enjoyed. We would like to dwell
,particularly upon the "legitimate mulso" part of
the performance, but the programme in this
respect was so varied and participated in by so
many that it would require more time to ex
patiate upon than we have just now at our com
mend.
We cannot omit mentioning the name of Anna
Teresa Berger, as artiste of the highest order,
and whose peformances on the cornet have won
for her deserved fame-an instrument upon which
she not only plays with remarkable skill, but
with a grace and coquetry surprising to behold.
We had thought it impossible for a woman to
combine these elements while playing on a wind
lanstrument. En passant we must pay a com
pliment to Miss Etta Morgan for her excellency
of execution manifeeted in the saxophone solo.
Referring to the remainder of the troupe we
or mmend to our readers Miss Kate Douglass,
who sings the ballad with great taste, and al
thoug her voice lacks volume she possesses those
resources found in cultivation only to All the void.
The Coleman Stiters are very entertaining in
their musical acrobatics on the banjo-a pleas
ing oddity, indeed, like the nerformaooe on the
tumbleronocon of Miss Kellogg. Mr. James W,
McKee is the best and politest character singer
that has visited these parts in many years, and
possesses a very pleasing voice, which does not
ack power.
We have but one regret to express, and since
we are giving a eandid opinion of the perform
ance, we will utter it: We do not think that the
character iketches of Jeppe and Fannie Delano are
of an order compatible with the remaintder of the
entertainment We much prefer Miss Delano
when the handles the higher key bells in the fan
taisie entitled "ILes Olochee Suisses," which
elicited a hearty round of applause from the au
dience. We will conclude Dy saying that every
thing presented by the Berger family was en
cored.
This evening the bill will be repeated, and oar
laty friends and the young folks are reminded
that there will be a matinee on Wednesday.
The "Duke's Motto."
The Opera House was filled last night to its
utmost capacity with fair women and brave men,
to see the performance offered by the Association
Dramatique Orleanaise to Capt. L. Boany's compp
ny, Battery "A," formerly the Bomran Rifles. The
performance ended at so late an hour that we
cannot speak deservingly of it now, and reserve
our criticism for to-morrow.

Prof. Ben's telephone, or, more plainly speaking,
A TMA4Lit TL.a.MiAi,
it was haraly considered poelble that seeb ma
invention really ested. Oonsiderable had been
eaid abou it In the solentio journals of the
North, however, and the hoss perpetrated by a
onserted motion on the part of the reportersdrew
to Gr.newakl Hal1' some two oa three hundred
anliots spectators, among whom was noticed
some at the santifle heads of the city. Neo
that time the invention bee beoome almost com
mon in the Northern and I4atern cities, but not
ntail recently have exlserimenke been made heuyse.
The .rst was made a month or two since by the
manager of the
AMselAw mmIeI' r I u(ft nAIIIAPFI OIIPAmlv,
Mr. W. Ii. Boflnger, who secured the instra
nmant and conneocted to them the wire leading
from the aain osies in lctehange Alley to the
ofbce on the corner of Ihelcon and Magazine
streets, and during one morning the inventios
was tested publioly and -found to work admirablv.
hineo then It has been a qn eaton of some doubt
in the minds of some of ur local electriiOanst
whether or not the telephone could be made to
work through a cable, and yesterday the quee
tion was settled
anqor)Ane nwear,
and to the satleraacion of all those, leluding a
number of electricians, who witnesse the experi
ment.
The District Telegrah Company secured for
the ooomseon the line and cable (aerose the Mia
slseippi) owned and used'by the Orescent Cit Oil
Company, leading from their ofdce, No. 190 Com
mon street, to the oil weord on the opposlte side
of the river, and located in Gretna, the total
length being about ftoo miles. To the end of
the line on the oppoit side of the river and in
the oa1ies of the till wee attehed the telephone,
or half a dozen of thema and to the line end on
this side, in the office of the company, 190 Com
mon street, was attached as many more.
In the flrst-uames omes there were congre.
gated Mr. Geo. W, Packard, superintendent of
construction of the Ameritan Distriot Telegraph
Company; W. S. Deiany, manager of the Fourth
District office, with a friend, Mr. Charles ack,
and Mr. Dartey, and in the last named ofoe

ment an explanation of the telephone (or tele
phones) need. It cobalrte of thre metal port
tion contalned in a osetogof wood or light hard
robber, about Ave or s inehee in length, anad
nearly three inches in diameter at the enlarged
end, and an inch and a quarter in diameter at the
small end, or that to which the main line is at
tsched, •ad in this oasing, without battery or
electricity, ls generated the current by the voice
of the speaker bhimelf that commun.eates the
sounds to the other extremity of the line. In the
enlarged portion of the oasing is
A raaxaNzwr ANAeET
held by a screw, and at,und one end of this mag
not is wound a coil of nse ineulated copper wire,
covered or wrapped closely with silk, the ends of
the wire being attached to longer wires, extend
ing to and terminating at the smaller end in the
binding sarews, to which is conoected the main
line, making, as it were, a "loop" or complete
circuit inside the telephone.
In front of the pole and ooil is a soft iron diskh,
all this being noclosed in the wooden or rubber
easing, having an aperture immediately in front
of the disk, and which, besides serving as a pro
tector to the magnet, sets ms a resonator. The
inflence of the magnet, which is susceptible to
the slightest vibration, induces all aroundit a
magnetic fluid, and
AN IBOM DIAPERAGM
is attracted towards the pole. Any alteration in
the normal condition of this diaphragm produces
an alteration in the magnetic Sali, either by
strengthening or weakening it and the slightest
alteration of the magnetie laid causes the induse
lion of a current of eleetricity into the coll. The
strength of this current is dependent upon the
amplitude and rate of the disk, and these in turn
upon the air disturbance made by the voiece in
apeaking, as the telephone (the larger end) Is
held to or in close proximity to the month; there
fore a wave of air throws the diaphragm into v
brution, and makes a obange in the magneti
fidl, and next an induced current is generated
in the coil or magnet. Where two o more tele
phones are attachbed to the same line every vibra
tion made by the Arst, or the one nearest
the ground wire-the end of the line-is
repeated by the acceeeding telephones, and
whatever sound produces the vibration in the
iret ic transmitted and reproduced by the other,
or others, f there be more than one until it has
I pssed the entire length of the mei line.
Thus it was yesterday, when some sax or aevea
gentlemen, eaoh with a telephone in his hand,
and oonnected with the main line leading to and
THAEOUri{ TSE CABLE f
to the oil works in Gretnas occupied seats at the t
office, No. 190 Common street, when the spokes- ý
man at this end inquired of Gretna if they were
all ready.
"Yes," replied Gretna; "What will you have?"
"How does this come to you?' was the next
question, and "Do you get my voitee well?
"You bet," was the response, "as clear as a
bell."
A running conversation was then kept up by
the gentlemen on this side with those in Gretna
for two hours or more, pending which time Mr.
Delaney and Mr. Darty, with another gentleman
in the oflfe at Gretna, sang quite a number of
aire, Mr. Delney playing an accompaniment to
each

and, strange as it may seem, each nte apon the
inetrumet was heard with the voices of the trio
ceear and distiaotly, and even when the banjo I
was being tuned each time a string was touched
it was hear at this end. "Old Black Joe,"
"Sweet By-and-By," and nmerous neother popular
airs were rendered to the amusement and do
light of the lsteers on this nde, and were ren
dered in 'a ereditable manner, too, although the
music and sound of the voioes were earried
