Alarm in England Concerning the rate of thse ister Training Ship of the Eurydice. (N. Y. Herald. LONtoN. April 1:1.-Much anxiety Is felt here with rospect to the fate of the Atalanta traing hlip. She carrlos eleven offlo.ra and 00 young seamen. ller comnander Is Capt. tarlling. She Is a sistor vessel of the Eury dice which foundered off the isle of Wight in the spring of 1875 having on board 325 ofieers and seamln, of whom 270 were young men in training, twenty ofmfoers and the rest invalids, time-expired mnl and court-mar tlaled prisoners on their way home from 11cr nuda. The Atalanta was last seen at lBermuda on January 29, and is therefore seventy-three days olut. She was expected at. I'ortsmootllh some weeks ago. She had water for sitxty days. The Channel loot have boon orderod to search for her In Ilantry hay, and Instruc t.ions have been sontl to I( ibraltar directing t he Pteamlship Wyo to call at the Aaores on her way home for possible tidings of the missing veosel. It Is thought that. if she had put. Into the Azoron, as was thought probhalo, the news would have been rectived by this timuse. SOW mxr EURnVII'tW WENT DowsN. The disaster that befell the Eurydilc was Sone of the most tragic in the ann# of the sea. .ite was coming ihome from a practice cruise to the West Indies, and was sailing past the Isle of Wight with every stitch of canvas set. The esplanade at Ventner was crowded with people, and she sailed so close to them that from the plorhead the cordage of the rigging was visible. Huddenly the sky became overcast, and a storm of snow and sleet burst upon the promenaders, driving them to cover and hiding the vessel from view. When the storm lifted only a passing schooner, lowvering her boats, could be soon, The Eurydice had capsitzd. All hands on tkoard had bheen inust.ered for prayer, and they had no time to devIse means of safety. The vortex of the sinking vessel sucked them all down but two. In a few minutes the attn was shiing more brilliantly than ever, but. it only Ill on a few large boxes swept down by the (rhlth of the channel. -..... . * -- POLITICAL POINTY. (Coll,.ctor Merritt says a good manny of the New York delegates will vote for Sherman at Chicago. Massachusetts is wondering why lien. But Ir hasn't nominated himself for something this year. Galusha A. G(row is credlted with the as sertion that the Southern States will have to elect Grant, if he is elected at all. The Evansville ,1 mnnal Is convinced that Washburne would poll a larger vote in In diana than any other man who could he nomi natel at Chicago. r Gen. Butler is reported to have said that he * will support the Greenback nominee for Presi f dent. He says there is no hotter man in the country than David Davis. A large gathering of MaIne Greenhackers and )Democrats is assembling at Bangor to arrange a basis of coalition for the coming campaign. Ex-Gov.Garcelon is among them. The Cincinnatit 'nqsuir, r has returns now from all the back towns of Illinois, and finds that among the Democrats Morrison is first choice for Premident, Tilden second David Davis third, followed by Seymour, hancock and Palmer. The quarrel between Senator Gordon and Representative Stephens, of Georgia has broken out afresh in the publication of a letter from the former, in which lie endeavors to prove that Mr. Stephens has been "crooked" in his course In regard to the celebrated ceun sus supervisor appointment. ST. Louis, April 13.-The executive com mittee of the Anti-Third-Term party have now received Information of full delegations from twenty-nine States to be present here at the convention of May 6. That that con vention will be a body to have an effect upon national politics is considered assured. A poetic opinion from the Canton (Miss.) Tilden? No! Never ! Hancock? Yes! Forever! There has not been a death in the old family of J. W. Mize, Sheriff of Sumter county, Ga., in stixty-three years, and he has six uncles and three aunts whose united ages º are 630 years. His uncles his cousins, and t his aunts number, all told, 156 that live in i Szmtkr county. TIE JEWETT 8OOM. A JluilIder, Not a Desirncttiouiqt..

SGOT'-BIDDONS. A Slim Audience to Listen to Beauti ful Readings. The audience gathered last night at (Gr*e wald Hall to listen to the readings of Mrs. Scott-Slddons, although not large, was a select one. It was a Sunday night, Moody and Sankey were attracting the people with that mn.gnetic force which gathers all by the strength of emotional religlonism. A great many of our citizens love to stay at home or go to church on Sund:ay evenings, and others, more prcfanly inclined, seek on a pleasant summer night the lake resorts, after which they indulge the dol(e fornintc. All this militates against the fullness of the audience last night, and we regret it princi pally on account of those who were absent. Mrs. Siddons at the beginning failed to get the accoustic capacity of the hall, and her Beatrice, in "Much Ado About Nothing," was rather unintelligible. She apologized in a happy manner by stating that this occurred on account of so much of the space being unoccupied. She requested every one, who A o deralrad, toi OhRIrge tlh.ir sII aa Ran try and.l tlrrorove mat1EPrs.

ILondon Enho,] Of the two royal duchles, helonglnag to mother and son, the prince's is the more va luable. In the first year of tile present reign, Parliament adjusted the property and income of the crown; and, while the greater portion of the crown lands was given up in considers tion of an annual stIpend, the duchy of Lan caster was reserved, to furnish a sort of pin money to the Queen's private purse. The sot In iquestion provided that an aoount should lie annually presented to Parliament of the income and expenditure of the duohles of Lrancaster and Cornwall. This was done when as vet, there was no duke of Oornwall, and the proiltt of the estate were acorulog In the Interest of a young gentleman hoped for. A short time since we alluded to some tnolnt In the Lancaster halan.-sthrnt which snowed a payment of $215,o00 to her Majesty's pri vate purse last year, out of a gross Income of $H80,(niO. The Primncn of Wales reoelved for tie same period $.325,296 out of a total of $451,9,H),5. 'IThe principal item among the reoelpt Is $3139,485 from the rents and profits of the tan narles courts. The next item in Importance arises froan a almilar source to the royal rlight of taking wine from every wine-lade ship that. put into a Lancasrhlre port; it was oornmrruted for an annual payment from t the consolRidate*d fundinI. 'The Prince, as Duke orf ornwall, rhad the right to certain duties on the stamping or coinage of tin, on "post groats and white rents;;" these were com rnurtnti by the act already quoted for an an inual oayment from the consolidated fund of s$1,080. The capital account shows an Invees mernt In government stock amounting to $59(,00,i), the rae it It of the Prince Consort's care during his san's minority, besldes about S$150,00o (cash in hand on D)erember 31, 1878. The Prince spen1ds about $S500 a year upon the entrtainmiont of the duchy tenants on the rent days and the payment of their traveling expenses. The Texas Mallroads. Lafayvetta Advertlser.J Hince our last report in regard to railroad matters work on the western road has steadi ly progressed. About two and a half miles of track is laid, but as this part of the work is frequently delayed In waiting for the con struction of bridges it does not advance as rapidly as was expected, though this maybe accounted for by the fact that the first four or five miles of road will average a bridge for every half mile, two of which being ocon siderable dimensions, one seventy-six feet and the other sixty-live feet In length. Fill ing in, surfacing and aligning is being done as the road advances, by Capt. Hayden with his force of convicts. This much for theroad going west. We have been Informed relative to the work coming east, that the trestle work across the "Grand Marais" is completed and the track is advancing on the Mermen tan river-the br dge over which is now in course of construction. The Morgan Company have a considerable force at work on their road, between this place and New Iberia, surfacing and aligning. Every train brings material of some kind to be used about the depot. The turn-table is ready for use, and the round-house will be constructed as rapidly as material can be had. On the road to Opelousas several forces are - at work throwing up and grading the road bed, and as the old bed is well preserved in many places this part of the work goes for ward as fast as could be expected. Mart, the Pedestriaa. (Chattanooga Tlmes.] Hart, the negro who won the great interna tional six days walking match in New York city last week, making the best time on rec ord, once lived In Columbus Ga. His wifebe longed to Major John E Iorgan, father of ex-Chancellor Morgan, of Memphis, and uncle of Col. Tomlinson Fort, of this city. She re sided with Judge Morgan's family at La Grange, Ga., situated forty miles from Colum bus. It was Hart's custom to walk over from Columbus to La Orange every Saturday night, and return "on Monday, accomplishing the trip without the least inconvenience or fa tigie. He continually performed some such feat of pedestrianism on his native heath, and was looked upon as a walking wonder, but he never seemed to recognize his own ability, or appear to think that he did anything at all extraordinary.
