New Orleans, August 9. The following
i tne montnly crop report:
Galreston. The cotton exchange condensed
report from one hundred and six replies, re
ceived from sixty-seven counties: The char
acter of the weather ha? been favorable in
fortv-four counties, and unfavorable in twenty-three.
Nice counties report ten per
cent , on? county reports fitten per cent.,
two counties report twenty per cent , and five
counties report twenty-five per cent, of the
lands abandoned since planting, principally
in the Lorthern part of the State, in conse
quence of the extreme wet weather. As com
pared with last ypar the weather up to
this date has been more favorable in seven
counties, the same in ten counties, and less
favorable in twenty counties. The stands of
cotton are good in sixty-thr e counties, poor
in four counties, and compared with last year
are better in thirty-eight counties, same in
twenty-five counties, and worse in tour coun
ties. Fifty-four counties report the plant
forming, blooming and boiling well, while in
thirteen counties it does not form well, and
is shedding. The present condition of the
crop is good in sixty-two counties, and not
good iu five counties; and compared with last
year sixty-two counties report the condition
better, and five counties worse.
Slew Orlenua Department.
New Orleans, August 9. The cotton
exchange crop report for the montn of July
is as follow?:
Louisiana. Returns from this State com
prise eighty-four replies from thirty-six
oarivhes, dating from July 27th to August
4th inclusive, the average d:-.te being July
'SUt. Fifty per ceot. represent the weather
sine? 1st as unfavorable, and the same num
bers as favorable, thi lowlands generally suf
fering from too much rain, causing the plant
to shed; from this coudition, also, the plant
at the close of July did not compare favor
ably with that fit the samo period last year.
The stand averages about the same as last
season. In about half of the parishes the
plunt is forming, blooming and boiling well,
but the other parishes all complain of the
shedding caused by too much rain. Fully
three per cent, of the lands put under cul
tivation in cotton in this State have been
abandoned. Several parishes report the ap
pearance of worms, but no damage has as yet
resulted. On the whole, the present condi
tion and prospects of the crop in Louisiana
are not so favorable as last season.
Minsissippi. Our correspondence from
Mit-sississippi embraces one hundred and
thirty-three replies, from thirty-on ! counties,
average date July 31st. The weather since
July 1st has been decidedly unfavorable,
more especially during the firbt two weeks.
Owing to continued rains in most of the
counties, an average of five per cent, of the
lands planted in cotton since the beginning
of the season have been abandoned. Cora
pared with last year, f rom the beginning of
the season to the close of July, the weather
has not been so favorable. Some injury to
stands has been sustained through freeing the
fields of grass, but on the whole, though not
good, they may lie considered as fair. About
one-half of our correspondents report that
the plant is not blooming and forming well;
the other half state the reverse. As a gen
eral thing, the bottom crops are poor, aud a
large percentage of the lands abandoned are
of this description. The crops are partially
grassy, though much bas been done to im
prove them since the rains erased in many
sections. Smith, Claiborne, Copiahand end
Covington counties report the appearance of
the worm, but no damage as yet.
Arkansas. Our reports from this State
embrace forty replies, covering twenty-one
counties, with average date of July '81st.
The weather since July 1st has been good,
but from the commencement of the season np
to t'.e close of July has been less favorable
than during the same period last year. Of
lands p'anted in cotton in this State, an av
erage of five per cent, have been abandoned
on account of the long-continued rains. The
stands are about a fair average, and the plant
is blooming and boiling well. The present
condition of the crop is hardly as good as lafct
IW'aahvllle Department
Nashville, August 9. The report of the
Nafhvilte department to the national cotton
exchange shows twenty replies.
Middle Tennessee. Sixteen report favora
ble weather since July 1st, four unfavorable;
only four report ten per cent, of Unds at-an-boned;
nine say the stands ure ab.iut the
same as last year, three much better and
eight not so good; eighteen eay the plants
are foimiag and boiling well, and two indif
ferent; fifteen say the crop is better thaa last
year, five not so good. The dry weather dur
ing the month was of great advantage in
preventing weeds.
Of twenty-five replies from North Ala
bama, twenty say that the weather is hot
and dry, and five favorable; no lands are
abandoned; seventeen show better stands
than last year; eight not so good; all say the
plant is blooming and boiling well; twelve
report the crop better than last year; eeveu
about same as last year, and six not in as
good condition; some complaint of ruat, but
not general.
The bureau of agriculture reports forty
foar and three-quarters percent, as the aver
age yield of woeat for the State, lhecorn
crop was rarely ever better, and the average
for the State is reported at eighty-eight per
cent.; the tobacco crop seventy two and five
sevenths; the average of the cotton crop at
eighty-one; pea crop, ninety-eight; Brasses,
one hundred and two; clover, one hundred;
millet, eighty-one; sweet-potatoes, ninety

Washington, August 9. The cabinet was
to-day aga-n convened with reference to our
relations with Mexico. The secretary of war
has received telegrams from General O.-d,
asking what action he should take in case
the United fetates tmops, in following a freh
trail after a raid has been made from the
Mexican side of the river, meet with opposi
tion from the Mexican troops. This question,
together with the general aspect of affairs on
the Rio Grande as reported to the war depart
ment, was the subject ot earnest attention. It
was decided there was no reason, whatever.
why the former orders to the American forces
liquid not be lully carried cut, and the Presi
dent directed the secretary of war to tele
graph General Urd, reiterating the existing
orders with reference to protecting American
interests aud the prompt pursuit and punish
meut of raiding parties. After the adjourn

At a meeting of the executive committee
of the horrte-rule confederation,-Wednesday,
a resolution was passed strongly condemning
Dr. Isaac Bait, a liberal find home-rule mem

first step ia the crusauc against Dr. Butt's

London, August 9. Rev. Mr. Mackono
chie, the incumbent of St. Albans, Hot burn,
having been suspended from his clerical func
tions for three years by sentence of Lord
Penzance, dean of Arches, for contempt of
court in refusing to obey a decree prohibiting
bis ritualistic practices, appealed his case
from the court of arches to tho high court of
justice. The appeal was heard this week in
the queen's bench division of the high court
of justice, and a decision was rendered yes
terday in favor of appellant. The court has
issued a writ of prohibition directed against
the sentence of suspension by the court of
Lord Chief-Justice Cockburn delivered the
opinion, Justice Millar concurring and Justice
Lush dissenting. The Tin.es, commenting
on the judgment of the court, says: "A much
more important isue than the enf, roement
of Lord Penzance's decree is indirectly in
volved. A majority of the court of queen's
bench have repudiated the principies of law
established by the judgments of the judicial
committue of the privy council, and have
substantially ignored the legal authority of
that high appellate tribunal. The revocation
of the sentence passed upon Mackonochie
implies that Lord Peozance was mistaken as
to the powers of his office, and that the ju
diciary committee of the privy council shared
in the responsibility for his mistake. Are we
to uuderstand that a 6ingie division of the
high court of justice can or will set aside the
law as settled by a tribunal of independent
jurisdiction, hitherto enjoying univeraal re
spect for the importance and value of its de
cisions? To this extent the lord chief justice
at "least is prepared to go. To stop bhort of
it would be, he affirms, dereliction of judicial
FERENCE. -Paris, August 9. The Franco-American
commercial conference, after considerable
discussion, adopted the project for a commer

yesterday. The project pro; oses the aboli

reduction of French and American duties
thirty to fifty per cent. The greatest rertuc
tion is upon wines and silks, the tariff upou
which is recommended to be arranged on a

San Francisco, August 9. A Stockton
dispatch says that fifteen tramps attempted
to board the west bound train last evening,
and being driven off by the train hands the
tramps assaulted the hands with clubs and
stones, and the leader fired two shots without
effect at the tear breakman. The latter re
turned the fire, inflicting a wound from which
the tramp died to-dy. The brakeman was
exonerated by the coroner's jury and dis
charged from custody by the police judge.

The Worst Ever Known at 9Ierlden,
Meriden.Conn., August 9. The severest
storm of thunder, lightning, rain and wind
ever known in Meriden occurred this evening
between five and seven o'clock:. The new
shop of Bradley & Hubbard was badly dam
aged about the roof. Many chimneys and
trees were blown down, but no lives lost.
Church s and Dwellings Demolished at
tVuilinKford, Connecticut.
Hartford, Conn., August 9. This after
noon, about, six o'clock, a tornado struck the
village of Wal'ingford, demolished the old
Catholic church on the plains, nnd then lev
eled some twenty houses in Wallace's row.
Other houses were moved and injured. Go
ing up the hill the tornado dashed to the
ground a thirty-thousaud-dollar brick school
house and then passed over the hill, snap
ping big elm trees as if they were mere reeds,
aud laying prostrate telegraph poles. Sev
eral persons were killed and many wounded,
and the village authorities have sent to Meri
den for doctors.
JKailwajs and Turnpikes Impassable.
Waterton, N. Y., August 9. Trains over
the local roads hereabouts, stopped by the
storm last night, are not expected to be run
ning again before to morrow night. The
turnpikes are impassable, owing to the de
struction of the bridges. Whole helds of
grain, corn and other products were wholly
rained; the grain harvested and stacked was
swept away by the flood. One man of this
city, awakened by his bed becoming wet,
found the front door of the house open and
water two feet deep on the floor, and a cradle
containing a baby asleep floating around. In
some places live stock was swept awav and
lost. The lightning was almost continuous
and painfuiiy vivid. The storm last night
prevented the meetiag this morning of the
Thousand-Island park camp.
Considerable Damage Done at It ye
Beach, A. II.
Boston, August 9. A succession of show
ers, accompanied by heavy thunder and eharp
lightning, visited this section to-day, and
considerable damage wrs done.
At Rye Beach, New Hampshire, at noon a
terrific sto m is reported. It was quite wide,
nnd at some places in its path whole sec' ions
if woodland w re blown down. The bridge
ut Bathing Beach was swept away, chimneys
were demolished, dwellings were flooded
and wrecked, aid less substantial buildings
were gutted. A boarding-hous-! near Bath
ing Beach was blown down, and N. E. Cate's
boarding-house on the beach was cut in two.
Acres of woodland have not a standing stick,
and but few chimneys in the track of the
storm remain. At Cape Vincent, New York,
in the storm last night, the Presbyterian and
Catholic churches, the railroad warehouse
and a dwelling were much damaged by light
ning. The storm on the St. Lawrence was
terrible. Tne telegraph lines were all pros
trated, no trains arrived to-day, and barns
filled with grain were burned. At Belleville,
Ontario, to day, the-vind aud lightning did
much damage to houses, barns and outlying
grain, while in Toronto three houses were
considerably injured by the lightning.
The Destruction at Wallingford.
Wallingford, Conn , August 9 A ter
rible tornado passed over Wallingford about
six o'clcck this evening, and blew over houses,
uprooted tree3 and caused the greatest de
vastation. It is estimated that the killed will
number at present at least twenty, while the
wounded will reach twice that number. Tel
egraph wires and poles were bio vn down,
making it impossible to communicate directly
with New Haven, or south, or Meriden, or
Hartford to the north. Word was finidly sent
by the up seven o'clock train to the two lat
ter places, and on the next down express,
which leaves Meriden at half-past seven
o'clock, came a number of physicians
and help. The greatest excitement
prevails, aud the wildest rumors are afloat as
to the loss of life. The tornado was con
fined to a belt cf territory about half a mile
wide, and the whole loss of life took place on
the sand-plains, about n quarter of a mile
north of the railroad station, near the line of
the Niw York, New Haven and Hartford
railroad. At six o'clock, while the men were
leaving the factories, a gentle rairv began to
fall, and soon increased to a perfect deluge,
while almost continuous and vivid lightning
illuminated the darkness of the sky as bright
aa day, and the thunder rolled with increas
ing deafening roar. Without warning, a tor
nado, with hail and rain swept across the
northern part ot the town, from west to east,
and eventbing moveable in its track
was carried away. It seemed to last but a
moment, but its results were frightful. After
ward a light rain fell, but this soon ceased,
and ate get o'clock the moon shone brightly
down upon a scene of desolation. By acta a!
count forty dwelling houses were demolished,
and at least fifty barns. The following are
among the killed, nearly all by houses fall
ing: In the plains echoolhouse, on the chil
dren's desks, lay the bodies of Mrs. Margaret
M wney, John Mocney and wife, Matthew
Mooney, Co-neiris Child. Tracy and wife,
Mrs. Jas. Hal Jy and infant child, Frederick
Li'.tlewood, Airs, John B yle and Mrs. John

Cashin, aged sixteen; a young daughter
of Robert Sanders, and Robert Daily's child,
Mrs. E. Downes, Katie Coughhn, aged fit
teen; Patrick O'Neil's child; John Hayden,
aged sixteen, are all that are certainly amoug
the killed, and it is possible one or two more
pre am,ng the ruins. In additioh, Patrick
O'Neil had his head and shoulders badly cat;

There are many others whose names could
not be ascertained. The scene was a memor
able one. The wooden houses were carried
clear off from their foundation, from a few
feet to one eighth of a mile. In the line
of the tornado nothing was left standing,
and on each side of its trck lesser damage
was done, chimneys, especially, suffering.
The Catholic church, wooden, and the new
brick high school were totally demolished.
The top of the brick factory, of Walling
ford community, was carried away, rires
were communicated to the ruins in many
casts by lamps and stoves, and but for the
rain the horror of the ulf tir would have been
greatly increased. A youth named Mathew
Mooney was standing on the railroad
track and was struck by the tornado.
He was picked up fifty feet away,
almost beheaded. Mrs. Huldy had
her child in her arms when picked up; both
were dead and almost scalped. Fred Little

Ills Brilliant Eulogy on Ben Butler as
the "White-Plumed Savarre," Bor
roned from Tom Fitch, of
Han Francisco.
New York, August 7. A Herald San
Francisco special says: Kearney's debate at
Boston has been looked forward to here with
great interest. It was rumored before hia
departure that parties here were preparing
speeches for his eastern audiences. He re
pudiated the very thought of such humilia
tion, and affirmed his determination to be
guided by pure, unadulterated, sound inspira
tion. To the consternation of his admirers
his speech in Boston comes over the wires,
radiating with science and eloquence which
is perfectly bewildering. His grand eulogy
of General Butler was taken textually from
Tom Fitch, the silver-tongued orator and ex
cocgres.sman of Nevada, on the occasion of
the ratification meeting of Hayes -and
Wheeler, held June 21, 1876. fo console the
wounded spirit of Speaker Blaine. Fitch
said: "Let me give a brief utterance to the
feelings of many thousands of earnest Re
publicans, etc., and send a message of love
and greetmg to him who is lesser than Mac
beth yet greater, fiery yet unconquerable, the
Rupert of debate, tho chivalrous white
plumed Navarre of the p'atfoim, the saga
cious statesman, great-h-arted leader, and

Mayor Bowman Crjoiacd from Pre
siding over the Ueaeral Law Coun
cil, but his Position as major
Kemains In Mtatu Quo.
St. Lours, August 9. In the case of the
application for injunction bylhe charter city
council of East St. Louis, to erjoin Mayor
Bowman, the general law city councilmen,
and all the city officers elected at the general
law election last April from further per
forming the functions of their various offices,
Judge Mott, of the circuit court, to-day
granted the injunction and required the com
plainants to enter into five thousand dollars
bonds. The injunction does not inteifere
with Mr. Bowman as mayor of the city, as
he was legally elected to that office prior to
the general law eltction last spring, but it
prevents him from presiding over the general
law council or in any way performing the
functions of an alderman. All the other
officers and the appointees of the general
law council are enjoined absolutely. The in
junction also requires the general law council
to deliver up all official papers, documents
and books, and all property belonging to the
city now in their possession, to the charter
co-jncil. What effect this action of the court
will have upon Mayor Bowman and his ad
herents i3 not known at this writing, but
judging from the past it is believed that the
Bowmanites will stand out until the supreme
court has passed upon their application for a
rehearing ot the Stephens case and the ordr
for a supersedeas.

Special to the Appeal.
Greeseville, August 9. On Fridayrt)e-cemb'-r
23, 1377, near Fullen's Depot, in
Greene county, a foul and most atrocious
murder was committed. Joseph Martin had
returned from Rheatown about dusk, had
eaten supper and was sitting in his parlor,
surrounded by his family (Martin sitting in
front of the fireplace, a daughter on either
aide, a son iu the back part of the rKm), when
a shot burst through the window, striking
him in the ear and tearing away his jaw.
Martin at once sprang out and ran through
his field in the direction of the house of Thos.
Stokes, a neighbor of his, crying loudly for
help. Stoke9 heard the noise and met Mar
tin about half way. Martin was accompanied
by his son and a negro boy, George Howell by
name, who had lived with him for six or
seven montns. Ma-t:n told the negro and
his son to go back to the house and see what
become of the children. Martin was (aken
to Stokes's house, a physician summoned,
and was thought not to be fatally injured.
Stakes, at Martin's suggestion, about mid
night, went to Martin's house, and found out
that the negro had fiVd. This aroii.-ed sus
picion against Howell. Martin died at four
o'clock Saturday morning. Howell boarded
the night freight-train and went to the resi
dence of a Mr. Mitchell, the father-in-law of
Martin, and informed Martin's wife, who was
waiting at ber father s to hear of the shooting.
She and the negro returned home about
twtlve o'clock Saturday, when Howell was
sworn as a witness by the jury of inquest.
Thereupon a searching cross-examination
brought out the fact and made him confess
to have threatened Martin's life, on the even
ing or me rnurner, to Martin s aaugnter,
stating to her that he had come within an
inch of sticking an at in his head in the
woods. The investigation of the jury was
adjourned, to meet at Rheatown at three
o'clock. Oa the way up, and while at dinner
at B. C. Marshall's, W. T. Mitchell said:
"George, I wonder that you were not afraid
ti shoot Martin at the time you did, for fear
of hitting one of the children." George re
sponded : "Oh, I'm a good tliot. I took aim
at the butt of his ear, and I knew I would
bring him." Howell then freely confessed
the murder to W. T. Mitchell and D. C.
Duties, stating to thetii that it was under
stood in the family that Martin was to be
killed, and that he was to do it. He said he
had made up his mind to kill him for a month
or move, that airs. Martin naa nired nun to
do the deed, promising him to bake some
sweet-cakes, and that his sou Robert had of
fered him two calves and a pig if he would
kill his father. Howell states that when
Martin requested him to return to the house
and see after the children, he entered tne
house and put the gun away, and tbat Mar
tin's daughter Margaret gave him a clean
shirt and told him he had better leave the
country. This the family deny. Robert says
that Howell did not enter the bouse, but
(stopped at the well-house. In support of
'this theory the gun was found at day
light, leaning agninst the well-house.
Iu support of Howell's statement it was
proven that he did have on a clean shirt at
the June term of the circuit court, when
Howell was put upon his trial. After three
days of argument the jury returned a verdict
of guilty, and the court sentenced George
Howell to be hung by the neck until dead, on
the ninth day of August. The prisoner was
calm and quiet this morning, lie was visited
by the brothers of the deceased, to whom he
still averred that the family kuew all about
the transaction. In a statement which he
prepared for the scaffold, he says: "Looking
back over my shoit career, I see a lesson
which speaks in thunder tones to the young
men of my race. Young inerj, young colored
men especially, heed the voice of one now
going into the tnub or.e who stands shiver
ing upju the brink of the lone river. Ob, I
beg of you, take warning by my s-id ttte.
Do not run heedlessly from the parental roof.
Do not commence a wild, tramping, roving
life. Be content to remain at home. Do not
murmur at those who are older and wiser.
Born in Lagrange, Georgia, in October, 1861,
both of my parents were slaves. I lived at
Atlanta six or seven ar3, and came with
my father to Smyrna, Georgia, and, taken
with a roving spirit, visited Cartersville and
Dalton, Georgia; Cleveland, Knoxville and
Bribtd. Tennessee, and different points in
Virginia. In November, 1S76, I returned to
Tennessee, and, stopping at Fullen's Depot, I
in a week or two hired myself to Joseph
Martin, the murdered man. I discovered a
misundeistanding between Martin and bis
family, and they had frequent wrang
linga, and Martin bad threatened to kill his
wife. Mrs. Martin came to me and told me
that Martin had threatened to kill me and
aud that I had better kill Martin, promising
me some cakes if I would do so; Bob prom
ising me two calves and a pig. The scaffold
was erected in a place known as "Gallows
Hollow," where four or five persons had b-ieii
previously hanged. Howell is the first per
son to be hiinged in Greene county since 1368.
He is a jove the . average of his race in in
telligence, and has not deviated in his state
ment of the crime, though frequent efforts
have been made to get him to contradict him
Six thousand people assembled to witness
the hanging of Howell, but to. the astonish
ment of every f erson, at thirty-five minutes
aiter eleven o'clock this morning the sheriff
received a dispatch from Governor Porter
postponing the execution. The action of the
governor has excited disgust, and fears are
entertained that the prisoner will be lynched

Special to the Appeal.
Nashville, August 9. Governor Porter,
at a quarter past ten o'clock this morning,
received the following dispatch from Greene
ville: "A poor negro child is t be sacrificed
here to-day about twelve o'clock on the gal
lows. Reason and the mercy of God require
that he have an opportunity to lay the facts
fully before ycur excellency. Please give us
time to present the cause truthfully to you.
All christians here join us in the reauest of a
respite of thitty deays for Gor.je Howell.
Please order Sheriff William White, of
Greene county, to hold up the sentence for
thirty days. Please reply immediately. We
are your dutiful servants." The dispatch
was signed by W. F. Yaidly. one of the gov
ernor's opponents iu tiie last gubernatorial
race, and fourteen other colored men.
Tiie governor says this dispatch got close
to him, and touched his heart. It had all
the simplicity ot a prayer, and was full of
pathos. The very affecting pttitions which
bad previously been presented gave but
meager information relative to Howell1!
crime, and he did not believe then that he
could do otherwise than let the law take its
course. His dispatch granting a respite wan
received at Greenrville just before the prepa
rations were made to take Howell to the gal
lows. Five thousand people had gathered at
Greeneville. many coming from Western Vir
ginia. The governor's dispatch was read be
fore this assembly, from wbKh rose immense
apphtuse for the goe nor, whws action wkb
heartily approved by all cias-ses.

The Fever Continues to Mpread at New
New Orleans, August 9. The yellow
fever continues to spread, and is well distrib
uted throughout the first and second districts,
with occasional cases in other quarters of the
city. The board of health continue the use of
carbolic acid as a disinfectant, but wilt try
lime in a few days, Mr. J. C. Clark, general
manager of the Jackson road, having pre
sented ten car-loads of fresh burnt linio. Ar
rangemants are also being perfected for irri
gating the city by flushing the gutters with
river water. The hopes of the health officers
of checking the disease by carbolization seem
to be weakening. This city is generally con
ceded to be in a filthier condition than lor fif
teen years; in fact, since General Butler bad
it cleansed. The fever prevailing here is of a
mild type, and the board of health have de
cided to continue the quarantine against ves
sels from infected ports, on the ground that a
more malignant virus might be introduced.
The Bee, complaining of the withdrawal
from publication by the board of health of
the yellow-fever bulletin of new cases, ob
serves in regard to the death register: "These
reports relate only to the mortality caused by
yeilow fever; at least they are given as such.
Although including some very strange cases
of death for exa uple, deaths of children
born here and of Creole parentage we must
acknowledge that it is difficult for us to be
lieve that these children, doubly Oceanians,
both by reason of their Lirth and race, should
be victims ot yeliow-tever. Can it be that we
have some other malady prevalent among us ?"
Sister Loyola La-.vler. a native ot Pittsourg,
died at St. Simon's school yesterday, of yellow-fever.
Four new cases of fever were repoitel to
day at Port Eads. Dr. Stone, with two ex
perienced nurses, who arrived there this
morning, says the cases there are yellow
fever, and the worst in his experience. The
jet'y officials report that there are twenfy
eight men there to take care of the property
and assist in nursing the sick.
Indian Affairs.
Helena, Mont., August 9 Theie is no
truth in the report that len-Days's band of
BannocVs had left the agency with hostile in
tent. They are proceeding under t'-.e escort
of United btates troops to the buffalo coun
try. It is claimed that there are no provi
sions at the agency, and they have been sub
sisting on rabbits and squirrel. One of the
Indians was shot and killed at a ranche at
Beaver Head canon for stealing, by a party
who was on the lookout for the thief. Con
siderable excitement was thus caused through
the uncertainty as to how the Bannocks might
regard the deed. Ten-Days was noticed of
the occurrence, and on seeing the remains of
the thief, said: "He was a bad Indian; buiv
him." ; m
Railway Accident.
Chicago, August 9. The passenger-train
on the Chicago, Qiincy and Burlington rail

were injured, but none seriously, except
Holden, the baggage-man, who had both legs
broken. The cause of the accident was a mis
placed switch.
