J ITiIa R YFo7l8 7 Tue Little Hock Gazttti warmly indorses the election Ot Judge Bear Jen, of Ouachita, to the speakership of the Arkansas house of rep resentatives, and nays of him that he is a man ot Kret dignity of character, firm addrf ss and exceptional ability. He made one of the l,est circuit juuVa the State ever had, and will, no tl.t!'-i. auu I" toe reputation he made on the l-r :. ov 114 .-tma t-- onor of being oue of tlw -non t :1.; 'not ttx.u'-rs -vho ever Resided over tho house o . .1 -"Benta; 1'. A dispatch to the Glob-Democrat, fi-.u Washington, states that Governor Hendricks was on the floor of the senate on Monday, and that in the course of conversation with Democratic senators.Jby whom he was warmly received, he said: "That the business of the w.i-t was improving, and the people are al ready turniDK their attention to the political outlook for 1SS0; that the western Democrats are determined not to be maneuvered out of the next nomination, notwithstanding the manipulation now being secretly conducted in the New York interests; that it was tuJ early to talk about candidate?, as that for the present was a matter of indifference, but it now appeared as if the west and southwest would unite in making the selection despite all lLfluenccs whick iuiihtbe broueht to bar to effict a contrary result." It is not as difficult to find men, women or children lost in a forest or on the prairie as it is in New York city. There, scarcely a day passes but some adult or child of either sex is advertised for as lost, and sad to relate not one in ten of them are ever heard of. They disappear from the earth as suddenly and completely as if translated, and aiter fur nishing a paragraph or an article for the papers, a nine-days wonder to their friend, and a lasting sorrow to their relatives, cate to be of any concern to any one. The police, which has not solved the robbery of the Manhattan hank or dicoverod the body of Mr. A. T. Stewart, it' they give tbemselveH aoy trouble about the "lost," seldom succeed in restoring them to the' families that in many cases are kit destitute by their disappearance. The latest cases of this character are two actors Frank M. Ward, late of the Fifth Avenue theater, and Frank Mordaunt.so well kno'vn to tho public ot Memphis. The latter dis appeared on Saturday, and bis wife thinks was murdered by some enemies, and the former uixppearad ou Monday, and his friends fear Las met with foul play. Both thebe gentlemen are so well known to the public of New York, and to the police, that the failure to learn anything of them makes their cases more startling than any that have occurred in some time. Lost in New York is equivalent to annihilation. Governor Miller, of Arkansas, yester day sent his messago to the legislature, a full report of which will be found elsewhere. He congratulates the legislature upon the mani festation of the Irutts of a free home govern ment, apparent in the existing good order, growth of industry, substaii'Jl well-being of the people and ipllux of immigration sirica the cessation of political strife between the classes. lie reports the expenditures for the laal two years as $ 1,300,000, of which only f4r0,000 was due to current expenses, or, deducting f 25,000 for pay deficits, averaging only 212,000 per annum, fn the treasury last September, belonging to the common and permanent school fund, $531,000; to the jj sinking fund, f 11,000,000. Tho board of finance durirsg the year borrowed ?20O,OC0 to pity current expenses. He recommends co further issuing of State scrip. The preserva tion of the honor and credit of the State is the only injunction as to the Loaded debt. The floating debt outstanding is (471,000. He leporU that the treasurer has discovered an trror of f &31.0C0 excess in the reports of his predeccsEors as to the amount of out standing Slate scrip. He recommends the improvement of the capitol, the appointment cf a State librarian, the revision of the reve nue and land laws, the maintenance of the land office, legislation to enable a settlement of accounts between the State and general government growing out of swamp and rail road land grants, the establishment of a State immigration agency, and an appropri ation therefor, the construction of a State lunatic asylum, railroad taxation on a basis cf the net earnings, and submits the plan of the Louisiana levee commissioners, necessi tating congressional adioa to ratify the com pact for building levees by Arkansas and Louisiana on tho Mississippi river at thf ir joint expense. CosbCL Wilson, of Hamburg, "recalled by the state department to answer a charge of embezzlement and breach of trust, finds him self in a bad box. It appears from a special to the Globe-Democrat that several months ago, a commercial agency having been estab lished at Harburg, opposite Hamburg, Ger many, a gentleman was appointed to that poit. The official reports in the department of state indicated that the rev.nueof the agency had for eight or tn years past ranged from fourteen hundred to sixteen hundred dollars per year. LTpon the arrival of the new conimeiciiil apent, Mr. Lazar, inquiiy was made into the condition ot the business of the place, and he ascertained that the legitimate proceeds of the office amounted to some seventy-six dollars per annum, and that the consul at Hamburg, Mr. J. M. Wilson, of Ohio, under a provision of the law author izing a consul to ictaic in the aggregate one thousand dollars of the fees received at the various agencies within his jurisdiction, had contrived Ly aa evasion of the statute to transfer to the agency at Harburg a large share of the verification of invoices which properly belonged to bis own consulate, by having it appear in the certificates that fuch ver;C ration was actually done at Har burg. From U13 fees thus unlawfully cred ited to the liarburg agency the consul at Hamburg derived, according to the informa tion lodged at the state department, a con siderable amount thus fraudulently collected. Overtures were made to the new agent to continue lh:s piaotice, but he persistently de clined, ncd returning to the I'nited States, laid the information before the department of state in a formal document, and the result h the recall cf Wilson, with a very fair op portunity for the penitentiary and prosecution at civ 1 fait for ten thousae-' dollars, the amount cf unlawful fees co.ie-cted and ro tained by him. FOUR DATS IN A SXOWBAXK. HI Handred I'unrsKrrn mailed " In a Train u the sew York Central Xear Koehftr-lleal rail Ulackla- tar Koads. Syracuse coir-spoodencc of tun New - York H'orhl: "The grout snow-stotm which has completely embargoed the Central railroad since Thursday ot last week, was the most terriGc and long-continued known in the his tory of the road. The firt passenger train which has reached Syracuse from Buffalo since Thursday arrived to night, and will reach New York about noon Wednesday, bringing an unprecedented accumulation of western mails. The amount ot snow which fell was not only unprecedented, but the wind for days blew a perfect hurricane, mak ing all attempts U pen tbe rta,t lutl1';; The entire length of road runs through a wall ot hiiow piled up from ten to twrnty-Gve feet high Hitherto the roml has always fought now-uorms and pushed ahead at all haz ards, but the elements proved too powerful during the past week, aud the authorities were compelled to rc-tite from the contest and await the cessation of the storm. The last train to pass over the road from Buffalo till this evening, was the St. Louis express, which left Roebe-ter at haif-past four o'clock in the afternoon, Thurs day. When it left Rochester it consisted of a snow-plow, eight locomotives, ten passenger coaches and several baggage and express cars. It proceeded slowly east in tho face of the tempest of wind and snow, until Sand Cut, two mile west of Fairport, was reached. Here the snow-plow struck a huge snow bank so solid that the plow and all the eight engines were thrown iroui the track. Five engines plunged down the bank and were completely wrecked. In the cars were six hundred passengers. That great loss of life did not accompany the accident was simply miraculous. Engine No. 478, the first to go dewn the bank, had on board Clark Bron tiage, 'nd Mr. (Jjough, the roadmaster, be sicu.s tut 'jrcman. The engineer was killed, ant. Ciouph had a leg broken in two plac?c Conductor John Holmes was also seriously injured. The six engines were scat tered about the tracks in every possible condi tion. Dr. J. B. lijrL'ltoD, surgeon-general United States Army, v;.u iortunately on hand, and he did good work lessing the wounds of the injured. Thestoitn raged all night fiercer than ever, and the passengers in the wrecked train, giving up all hopes of relief, passed the night without sleep. Superintend ent Burrows started from Rochester for the wreck Friday, with six engines, but all got off tne track a lew miles east of Rochester. The storm continued Friday, rendering all attempts to rescue the impris oned passengers futile. In the meantime the farmers living in the vicinity forced their way to it Friday morning and supplied the passeneers with coffee and baked beans. The conductor made his way to Fairport aud succeeded in returning with a scant supply of provisions, which lasted until i nday night. On Saturday the conductor again went to Fairport and returned with a sleigh-load of provisions. The six hundred passengers took matters good-naturedly, and expressed tbu highest gratitude to the farmers who csme to their relief even with a ecanty sup' vv of provisions. On board the train were 11. H. Twombly, son-in-law of W. II. Yau derbilt. and his wite. and J. II. Rutter, eren eral freight agent of the New York Cectral and Hudson River railroad. They had been in Rochester to attend the funeral of George Whitney, a director of the Central road, and were ou their way home. A number of friends in Rochester, on Sat jrday, determined to rescue them at all hazvds, and started in a four-horse sleigh, but the roads were drift ed so badly that they were compelled to strike out across lots, the farmers assisting them lo cut away the arifts. After hercu lean efforts the partj succeeded in reaching the train. They found the passengers in pretty good shape, as help had already reached them from Fairport. The dead body of Engineer Brundage was in the cabocse, the lower part of his body being crushed to ajeily. His fireman lay alongside of him, having suffered the amputation of one leg, besides having his arm broken. In one of the sleeping-cars were lying, Mr. Clough, both of whose legs were broken; Mr. Holmes, who was badly hurt about the head, and En gineer M'Carthy, whose shoulder was put out of joint. All the women were made aa com fortable as possible under the circumstances. Having shaken hands all round, the relief party made preparations to return. Mrs. Twombly, wrapped in robes and straw, was placed in the bottom of one of the sleighs with her husband and Mr. Rutter. The re turn journey was made in safety, the Osborn house being reached in time for dinner. Al though the riding was somewhat rough, Mrs. Twombly paid she enjoyed the drive im mensely, it being the most adventurous sleigh-ride she had ever taken. The embar goed passengers stayed in the cars till Sun day, when relief came, and the rescued were brought to Rochester. Meantime a similar state of affairs existed on the Auburn road. At I'itsford, ten miles from Rochester, the Baltimore express, which left Rochester Thursday afternoon, became hopelessly stalled and unowed under. On board the train were Miss Millie Smith, daughter of Judge J. C. Smith, f Canandaigua, and several lady friends. Mr. A. C. Smith, a brother of Misg Smith, started Friday with some friends to the rescue. After fighting the snow eight hours they reached Pittsford. Leaving the sleigh there and getting the services of two guides, the gentlemen strapped a pack of provisions on their backs and started to reach the train, a distance of three miles. Their B journey's end was reached at nine o'clock in the evening. Ihey lound that the night previous the passengers had passed a miser able time. Most of the ladies had como in to Rochester in the morning to do some shop ping, and, the day being pleasant, had not brought extra wraps with them. The force of the wind was so great that the snow was beaten into the car to such an extent as to make puidles on the floor. It was impos sible to keep warm three feet from the stove. Those iD the sleeping-car fared a good deal better. Friday was spent in the most lively manner possible, and Friday night was again passed in the care. Saturday morning the scow-bound passengers were delighted to see a six-horse sleigh and a gang of men ap proaching. They proved to be James Lord, J. M. Wiltzie and a number of other resi dents from Fittsford. Miss Atkinson, Miss Smith and other ladies were placed in the sleigh, lesides a number of others, and driven to Mr. Wiltzie'8 house, where they were en tertained with the most royal hospitality." The Cheek and Kar Torn OfT Fred Ito dersttne. Cincinnati Enquirer, of Tuesday: "A ter rible, and probably fatal, accident, happened to Fred Roderstine, of the twenty-first ward, yesterday afternoon. It was nbout three o'clock. He is engaged with Field & Co , the coal men. and at tho time was driving a wagon, drawn by four horses, up Glenway avenue. The horses become frightened at something, wheeled about and ran down the hill at a terrific speed. Roderstin tried to stop them, but was thrown under the wheels of the loaded wagon. When picked up he was a horrible sight. The flesh on his right cheek was torn away so that the tepth and jaw were exposed, the ear was entirely severed from the head, liesides this, the poor rnan was severely cut and bruised about the head and neck, and had several ribs bro ken. Dr. Shepherd dressed bis wounds as well as possible, ana he was taken home to 464 West Fourth street. It is the physician's opinion that he wilt recover without much doubt." Will Besnmption fall r Waihiugton Post: "The rott ran against Representative Bland, of silver-bill fame, last night, and asked him what he thought of re sumption. He replied that resumption, as now existing under the Sherman plan, is a snare and a delusion. 'It is only temporary,' he said, 'and may last a week, or maybe six months. Permanent resumption cannot be maintained without unlimited coinage of sil ver, in my opinion. It might be possible to maintain it, all other circumstances being fa vorable, by coining silver dollars up to the full limit of the present law; but I think, to make it an assured success, silver ought to be coined at the rate of a hundred million of dollars per year for the next four or five years. That would make it a sure thing. This talk about the currency question being settled is wrong, too; it's a mistake. It never will be settled until there is unlimited coinage of sil ver. That would put gold and silver on a par, and tffectually settle the currency ques tion: 1 am confident Sherman's resumption will fail, iiud before very long, too. As soon as there is a big foreign demand for gold it will knock the bottom out of resumption. Of course, if congress allows Sherman to 6ell ail the Lous' s he wants to he can maintain him felf for some time, but that would be impos ing a heavy burden upon every interest of the country.' " I'erinry to Avoid raying; Taxes. The taxpayers of New York city have had im pyo-opaner in the statement of W. H. Yanderbilt, made under oath to the assessor, that he has no personal property subject to luxation. The Graphic has a fire cartoon on tne subject, representing Yanderbilt in a very ragijed dress, with bus toes sticking out of bis boots, and it says eJitoriully: " The master and virtual owner of the Harlem, Hudson River, New York Central, Lake Shore and Michigan Central railroads, which connect the two great cities cf the United States New Yors and Chicago and tuu through the richest and most populous part of this country; the owner of u controlling share in the stock of th great telegraph monopoly, the Weet.-m Union; the heir ot ninety-five million uolUrs from his father; the holder of a mortgage of thirty three million 00 the Central railroad, the projector and probably the owner of a fleet of ocean freight steamers; the owner ot a stable of trotting horsea which almost rivals Bonner's in speed and cost; tha man who is collecting at fabulous prices the choice oralleged choice productions of foreign artists, Meisr.nier among them; the nouseholder who lives in princely style, and who, because he is crip pled for room in his pr-;ent quarters, pur chased for five hundred thousand dollars property on Fifth avenue on which to erect a residence grinder than any that rew York now contains this person declares under oath that alter his debts are all paid he his no personal property." KAAT. Watt a Catholic Priest, a t'otkonlsa, Tbinbs or the Iterusal of Cork to llrsw Uraot The Fatal Ie Moines Sierh Poetry of tho Hoar. Cincinnati Coni-nerciul, of Monday: "'A Commercial teporti r ra;t Father Crowley, pastor of St. Patrick's church, Cumminsville, who is a native Corkonian, yesterday, and asked him what be thought of the ref usal of the common councl ot Cork to tender a re ception to Gem r.i! Gi -mt, without a dissent ing vote, to whi:h Fother Crowley replied: The common council of Cork is composed of members of all religious denominations. and not more than half of that body are members of the Catholic church. It seems strange that the New York Herald and Cin cinnati LVginVyrsbouId have; construed their manifestation of feeling against Grant as an evidence of the Catholic teelinir against the general. Cork is the Athens of the British empire, and mute no distinction of class, creed, country, or nationality, ana puoiic spirited citizens having made public sacri' faces in the cause of liberty and freedom of conscience, are treated without regard to na tionality or religion, with honor and with glory commensurate to their services in the cause of civil and religious libertv. Reporter What do you think has caused this evidence of feeling against General Grant in the city of C'"rk ') Father Crowley His Des Moines speech, which was madu on the eve ot the last Presi dential election. It evidently was not his own publication. For I believe General Grant to b:i a first-class military man, too much influenced by cliques aud rings, and this influence has brought him to make this bieroted speech against the Catholic church Reporter What do you suppose was his obiect for making such a speech? Father Crowley He wanted to pave the way lor a.third-term nomination, as he sup posed the dodge was popular. (rant's Ies Moines Mpeecb. Des Moiiits Register: The little speech cow revived so suddenly in interest, as pub lished iu the next morning's Register, and set from the general's own manuscript, was as follows: "Comrades It always affords me lauca gratification to meet my old comrades in arms of ten to fourteen years ago, and to live over asrain in memory tue trials and hard ehiDS of those days, hardships imposed for the preservation and perpetuation of our free institutijiis. We believed then and believe now. that we had a government worth fitrht ing for. and, if needs be, dying for. How many of our cooiraciej of those days 1 a'-d the latter price tor our preserved LuiOii: Let their heroism and sacrifices Vie ovnr g'ea in our niemorj'. Let not the results of their saciiiices be destroyed. The Union and the tree institutions for which thev foil should be held more deur for their sacrifices. We will not deny to any of those who teupht ag,iict us any privileges under the government which we claim tor ourselves. Oa the con trary, we welcome ull suA who come for ward in good faith to help build up th waste ulac68 and to perpetuate our institutions against all enemies as brothers in taU inter est with U3 iu a common heritage. But we are not prepared to apologize for the part we took in the war. It is to be hoped that like trials will never aain In f.iil our country. In this sentiment no class of people can more heartily join than the soldier who submitted to the dangers, trials, and hardships of the camp and the battle-field, on whichever side he may have fought. No class ot people are more interested in guarding against a recurrence of those days. Let us, 1 hen, be gin by guarding against every enemy threat ening the perpetuity ot L-ee republican insti tutions. 1 do not bring into this assemblage politics, certainly not partisan politics, bat it is a fair subject for soldurs, in their delibe rations, to com-ider whiit may be necessary to secure the riza for which they battled. Iu a republic like ours, where the citizen is the sovereign and the official the servant, where no power is exercised except by the will of the people, it is important that tho sovereign the peoples should possess intelligence. The free school is the promoter of the intelli gence which is to preserve us as a free na tion. If we are to have another contest in the near future of our national existence, I predict that the dividing line will not be Ma son and Dixon's, but between patriotism and intelligence on the one side, and supersti'ion, ambition and ignorance on the other. Now, in this centennial year of our existence, I be lieve it a good time to begin the work of strengthening the foundation of the house commenced by our patriotic forefathers one hundred years ago at Concord and Lexington. Let us all labor to add all needful guarantees for the more perfect security ot free thought, free speech, and free press, pure morals, un fettered religious sentiments, and of equal rights and privileges to all men irrespective of nationality, color, or religion. Escour age free schools, and resolve that not one dollar of money appropriated to their support, no matter how raised, shall be appropriated to the support of any sectarian school. Resolve that neither the state or nation, or both combined, shall sup port institutions of learning other than those sufficient to afford to every child growing up in the land the opportunity of a good common school education, unmixed with sectarian, pagan or atheistical tenets. Leave the mat ter of religion to the family altar, the church and the private school supported entirely by private contribution. Keep the church and state forever separate. With these safe guards, I believe the battle which created 'The Army cf Tennessee' will not have been fought in vain." This is the famous speech entire. It will stand for its own defense. It was vt ry pop ular when it was delivered; it will be more so now. Of course the matter at Cork will cause the republication of it everywhere, aud spring anew the discussion of the subject. It is one of the wonders of the phenomenal career of this remarkable man that even that which is intended to be a blow to him advances his fortunes. It will be so in this case. That which was intended at Cork to iusult him will evidently greatly serve him, and aid not a little in making him still more prominently than before a central figure in public thought and discussion. Everything, it seems, that comes to the door or General Grant, whether intending good or evil, results to his fortune. The Poetry Insiired by a Ludicrous Incident. Chicago Times: If Grant wanted to go to Cork, what was to step him. as the Irihinn from Cork possibly said ot the watets cf Ni agara. His failure to go after the announce ment through the United State3 consul of his intention to do so, and the town council's refusal to spread a f ree lur.ch in honor of the visit, is significant. Will he not go where free entertainment is not guaranteed? The whole ludicrous incident is the occasion for rather free-and-easy treatment of one of the most musical poems in the English language, Father Prout's (Mahoney't) Hells of Shan don. It has been distorted for illustration's sake into dozens cf odd shapes. The follow ing is one verse of n parody from the Boston Post - " She seems unwilling to spend a shilling On til 111 who has always pulled her out From the e assy throttles of Itasks and bottles, And tne fermenttttlons of Iouble Stout. Oh, lXrk! this savois of thauklrs-) luvois. And brings discredit on thine and thee: For In no such manner our dounbty tanner With thee has acted since he conquered l.ee." A Nad. Bad Cane. William E. Osborne, aa oil actor and manager, died in the most abject poverty on Monday, at the residence ot bis son, No. 5 Center Market place. New Y'ork.

He was once man iger of the Richmond street (Ya.) theater and of the Coestnut street (Philadel phia) theater.
