Knilroad Property Ietroyed by l ire
FIRST DISPATCH.
New York, May 31. The depot of
the Delaware, Lacawaua and Western
and Morris and Easex railroads are now
burning at Hoboken, New Jersey. A
number of passenger cars are reported
destroyed. Tue Haines have communi
cated to the ferryhouse. The fire broke
out about half-past five o'clock this
morning, huge volumes of smoke rising.
Later information is that the entire de-
iot building has leen destroyed, with the
exception ol the ferryhouse. The flames
are not yet extinguished. Loss not as
certained. SECOND DISPATCH.
New York, May 31. The fire in the
Delaware and Lackawanna railroad de
pot, in Hoboken, is still burning. When
the flames were first discovered, four
trains were ready to start, and were run
out of the depot, but four freight cars
that could not be removed were burned.
The flames have communicated with
the dock, aud the firemen are endeav
oring to save it. The origin of the fire
is unknown, but it is sai'l to be the work
of an incendiary.
THIRD DISPATCH.
New York, May 31. Flames were
first discovered rising lrom the window
of the restaurant, and notwithstanding
the alarm v.-as immediately given and
the firemen quickly responded, owing
to the inflammable nature of tne depot
the entire structure, two hundred and
fifty feet deep by seventy-five wide, was
soon a burning mass. The firemen
turned their attention to saving the Ho
boken ferry company's buildings, ad
joining, and succeeded; the freight in'
the depot was of a trifling nature. The
railroad company saved all their books
and papers. The total loss, Including
the depot and dock, is estimated at sixty-five
thousand dollars.
Particulars of Minister Orr'a Death.
New York, May 31. A St. Peters
burg letter-writer, under date of the
eighth instant, sends the following
sketch of the rickness, death and fune
ral sen-ices over the remains of the late
United States minister to the court of
the czar: "The diplomatic career of
Governor Orr came to a painful end be
fore it was fairly begun. It is not quite
two montt-.s since he arrived in St.
Petersburg and presented his credentials
to the emperor. He was suffering at
the time from a severe cold, contracted
during his Atlantic passage, and about
a week after his former installation in
his new office he was forced to take
to his ted, aud from that day
he did not leave his apartments.
The cold settled ou his lungs and after
ward parsed to his liver, so that his
blood became seriously affected. No
serious result was apprehended, howev
er, and on Frilay, four days before he
died, his friends thought he was slowly
yet steadily improving; but on Monday
last there was a change, and he died
quite suddenly at two o'clock. The
funeral services were celebrated to-day
in the chapel of the English-American
society. There was no discourse, the
pastor simply read the impressive ritual
of the Chcrch of Fngland, aud
closed with a short prayer. The
gloomv little chapel was by no means
full. There were some dozen ladies,
English and American, half a dozen
American gentlemen in black, and
thirty or forty diplomats in their bril
liant yet somber court costumes. The
Austrian ambassador was there; min
isters of Brazil, Italy, Greece, and at
taches of other legations as well as of
foreign offices. Mr. J. L. Orr, solitary
family mourner, stood side by
side with General Powintz, consul,
who wore a familiar uniform of a
brigadier-general of the American army.
The scene was indescribably sad. After
the rector had finished the services the
diplomats walked around the coffin and
drop K-i each upon it a little sand, the
civilians present doing theaame; and as
the mellow Russian sun broke through
the stained windows of the humble
church the cortege took up its man !)
and passed mournfully away. The few
Americans In St. Petersburg there are
not above half a dozen families were
very attentive to the unfortunate min
ister, and since his death have taken
i entire charge of the funeral arrange
ments. The .English Ineudso! the lega
tion have also been very kind, and the
sad circumstances surrounding the case
have awakened a general sympathy in
the diplomatic corps.
New York, May 31. A Washington
dispatch says the report that General

Judge Sedgewick gave an important
decision on the coal contract case in the
general term to-day. H. C. Bowen and
others contracted with the Delaware
and Lackawanna coal company for a
supply of coal. After a few tons were
delivered a strike took place at the

received. The company brought suit,
pleading the terms of the contract, and
that the storm disaster and strikes ex
empted them from the strict fulfillment
of the contract, aud the referee decided

court, deciding that the strike set up by

St. Joseph, May 31. In all the his
tory of this city no such a day as this
has ever been witnessed, and visitors
from New York, Chicago and St. Louis
declare they have very rarely, even in
those great cities, seen such a magnifi
cent display. Last night and all this
morning heavily-laden special trains
were arriving, until at last the city
seemed a living, moving mass of peo
ple, who had come to take part in
the celebration of the comple
tion of the great bridge over
the Missouri river. The procession
commenced forming at eight o'clock,
at ten o'clock -took up its line of
march for the bridge, traversing the
principal streets. It was fully six miles
iulengtii. Every trade was represented,
and all conceded that they had never
witnessed a more impOHiug spectacle.
In brief, St. Joseph covered herself with
glory, and demonstrated the fact
that she is not only a city
of wealth and commercial resources,
but already a large and growing manu
facturing city. After crossing the bridge
the procession moved to the park in the
southern part of the city, and there the
vast multitude were addressed byEx
Gdvernor F. P. Hall, president of the
bridge company; Hon. J. S. Kallock, of
Kansas; Joseph Brown, mayor ot St.
Louis; Hon. J. C. Parker, member of
congress from this district; Colonel
James B. Eads, of St. Louis, and others.
In the evening over oiie thousand in
vited guests sat down to a magnificent
lianquet, where Governor Woodson, of
Missouri, Jx-uovernor Hall, Hon. J. is.
Kallock, Colonel Eads, Hon. H. C.Lett,
of Nebraska, Newton Crane, of the St.
Louis Democrat, General Craig, and
others responded to appropriate toasts.
This evening the Siengerfest society
are holding a jubilee at the operahouse,
which is packed from pit todome with
people.
Colonel Eads and other distinguished
civil engineers have carefully inspected
the bridge and pronounced it equal in
strength aud l-eauty to any bridge in this
country or in the old world. It is built
on the same plan as the St. Louis bridge.
About one hundred can have crossed it
daily for i he past week. It is expected
that in a few days arrangements will be
completed for the Missouri Pacific, the
Atchison, Topekaand Santa Fe, Atchi
son and Nebraska and the Leaven
worth. Lawreoce and Gulf roads to run
over this bridge into tit. Louis.

THE PRESIDENT OF KIM M K.
Napoleen, and all St. Cyr was present
in a body, illustrates the explosive con
dition of the atmosphere iu which Mac
Mahon formed his opinions. Gravely
remarked that (Juotidienne the next
morning: "There were a hundred duels
on that memorable night, but (regret
fully only seven proved fatal." Mac
Mahon set out in life as legitimist fire
eater of the fiercest type a tape detsvn
sort of person, as the conservatives style
men who thoroughly mean what they
say. The revolution of 1830 found him
battling with the Arabs in Algiers. In
1848, when the crisis was, he was a
colonel, au officer of the legion of
honor, a conservative three things
differing in terms, but standing for the
same idea. Ixuis Philippe went down.
Men like MacMahon looked on in silent
contempt, and then called for a regime
of order. Had they and theirs cast thier
lot with the republic then aud there,
fiouis Napoleon would never have made
his coup d'etat. When the late prisoner
at Mam ascended tne throne. Mac
Mahon swore a fourth fealty and took
what providence had in store for him,
which proved to be a very liiral dole of
honors. It was at this stage of his
career that he learned to say nothing,
but having saved his master at Magenta,
he had at least earned the right to be
silent; although, being the idol of the
people, the Emperor tolerating no
worship of idols, got him out of the way
by sending him to govern the Arabs
aud get killed if possible. Since then
MacMahon's opinions have been a seal
ed book to France. He has obeyed all
orders silently. What his opinions may
have been of M. Thiers "little dada,"
as he is styled by conservatives haif in
contempt, by the Republicans half in
admiration nobody knows. What his
policy will be it is, therefore, idle to pre
dict. Born in 1808, at Sully, near An
tun, he will be sixty-five years old July
13, 1873. Descended from an ancient
family of Irish Catholics, who followed
the Stuarts, he is not probably an enthu
siastic republican.

It is now almost fifty years since there
was entered at the military school of
St. Cyr a young man of seventeen, who
to other merits added that of being the
son of a peer of France. St.' Cyr was
at that date well stocked with the
Erogeuy of noblemen. Its catalogue
riatleo with Montmorencys, Har
courts, Luynes and Rohan, who amused
themselves of a Sunday iu going to
Paris and makiug a rout at the theater
Franeais or giving liberal journalists,
such as theu was M. Thiers, reason
enough for a duel. The former was gen
erally compassed by hissiugM'Ue. Mars,
who had a taint of Bonapartism; the
letter in any of those ways which young
men know how to use when disposed to
be riotous; and no doubt that young
Mac Mahou, the son of a peer of France,
then a fierce legitimist, later the lieuten
ant of Louis Napoleon, still later the
right hand of M. Thiers, but to succeed
him at last, may have lain awake many
a night speculating on whom he might
fix a quarrel. Young gentlemen at
St. Cyr were prone in those days to con
spiracies against the peace in a small
way, and to them a liberal journalist
was vermin to be worried by a cat and
then disposed of. Everybody remem
bers for it was the talk of the salons-
how M. Constant de Rebectjue, editor of
the Minerve, having bad a dozen duels,
at last salaried a fencing-master to at
tend to that department, and how, the
fencing-master having been cut down
one day as substitute for hi t master, the
latter on the spot offered the vacant
post to the victor, who at once accepted
and entered on his duties. The riot
when Talma acted Cinna. made up as
A' Kentucky horse drover, by the
name of B. F. Barnett, says the Pnnola
Star, reports that he was shot at,
wounded and robbed, near our town, on
Saturday night last, about dark. There
is some mystery connected with the
affair, and doubts are entertained as to
whether the party did not shoot himself,
aud report that he was robbed for some
unknown sinister cause, lbe tacts are
these, so far as known: About two
weeks since, B. F. Barnett, from Rock-
field, Warren county, Kentucky, came
to this place with six or seven fine
horses, in company with a hired man,
and as he had been previously iu
this section with stock, he was known by
Messrs. Locke ARioe, liverv-stablemen,
and he quartered his horses in their
stable. He effected a sale of all of the
horses to parties here, selling the last
horse on Saturday evening, but reserv
int; the right to ride the horse out in the
country that evening. Having made
all of his arrangements for leaving next
morning at daylight on the train, and
having sent his hired man home on
Wednesday, he left town about one
o'clock, stating that he was going out to
see a certain party by tne name ot J.
Wright, who lived about fifteen
miles northeast of this place, and
who owed him three hundred
dollars. He was gone uu til nine o'clock
in the morning, when he returned and
stated that he had been shot and robbed
f twelve -hundred dollars, by two men,
alout six miles from town; that he had
gone within four miles of Wright's
house, and had met Wright, and had
received the three hundred dollars, and
that he returned to town, and when
within six or seven miles of this place
two men sprang out from the roadside
and demanded his money. He said he
had none, and they fired upon him,
aud that he fell from the horse
wounded in the left arm, and that be
was robbed and made to get on the
horse aud start toward town, the rob
bers disappearing iu the woods. He was
greatly excited and confused, and could
not tell where and bow he was shot and
robbed, other than the above statement.
A surgeon was summoned, aud It was
iouud that he was shot by a pistol ball
through the fleshy Dart of the left arm.
aud that a ball had been shot into the
left breast of his coat, the ball striking
a memorandum book and glancing off.
He left on the train next morning, re
fusing to stay here aud take any steps
toward arresting or giving any informa
tion of the affair.
