The Vera Cruz Disaster* narrative of the wreck by another of the survivors. A iele^rapn to tte N. Y. Sunday wrara, from Jacksonville, Fla., Sept. ll, says: Another of the survivors lrom the lost steamer Vera Cruz has arrived here. Ills name is John ConnelL He savs he w as employed as a coal passer. The gale which wrecked the vessel, he maintains, commenced on Friday, August 27, early In tlie morning. He tells the story in this way: "I was in the tire room asleep and did not notice Captain Van Sice or his officers, but stayed where 1 belonged. The pert side of the vessel received the whole brunt of the gale. The vessel was wrecked Sunday morning. We *11 left at the same time. I was blown off the deck of the steamer; managed to reach a temporary raft, but was washed off that and had to swim for it, the best I could for two hours or more. Got on to another raft, on which was the second engineer, Smith. He could not swim a stroke, and as the raft would not hold us both. I swam out for another fragment which I clung to until I was washed ashore. The baker of the steamer passed me and hailed me, but he got swamped afterward. I sayed nothing. All I had was a shirt and a bad one at that. Mr. W. M. Lowerey, of New Smyrna, bought me a full suit of clothes and give me my board Hil I left on the Magnolia, captain Cook, for Jacksonville. I was thrown ashore on the beach twelve miles below the spot where General Torbert floated ashore. Coal passers were not allowed to go aft, and therefore I had no chance to know much about the passengers. Know Mr. O. F. Silvio, the Brazilian. He is ashore at New Smyrna. Got acquainted with him alter the wreclv. He would not come with me by water, lie said he would not trust himself on the water again and tried to reach here by the mail car, but that he could not do, as tte storm had cut up the track and washed away everything. There were only three of us from the Vera Cruz that reached New Smyrna? myself, Mr. O. P. Silvio and a young Cuban gentleman, who had his wife on board with him. Tfeey had got separated somehow, and she was drowned. He told me had $5,ooo with him at the time he left the steamer, but he 103t that, and got ashore not any better off than myself. I heard his name, but I cannot remember foreign names. He was a young man, only twenty years of age. The Tliird Ilichmond in the Field* The Brattleboro correspondent or the Springfield KtpubUwan gives some facts respecting (;en. Phelps, the antl-Masonlc candidate for President of the United States. The "American"' party, which named him for President at Chicago, on June 17, demands prohibition, arbitration Instead of war, the use of the Bible as a public school text book, and justice to the Indians. But its most prominent principle, and the one c>f which Gen. Phelps stands as the most marked exponent, Is opposition to all secret societies, the fight centering on Masoniy as the most prominent. It was during his service in the south, "under Mormonlsm ana slavery." as he termed It, that General Phelps first' 3aw a connection between Masonry and politics," and so convinced was he of "its baleful lnlluence" that be translated from the French a history of secret societies, published by Lipplncott in 1s56. But he was brought into most general notice by harboring fugitive slaves during the war at Ship Island, against the policy to which the government then adhered. To justify his course, General Phelps set forth the Impossibility of at^nce putting down the re belilon and upholdinfks parent?slavery?and urging the equipment of 50 colored regiments. In reply to his requisition for arms tor three regiments and his declaration that the enlistment of colored troops would end the war sooner than any other course, General Butter ordered him to employ his contrabands as laborers In making defences,which he peremptorily refused to do, saying, "I am not willing to become the mere slave ailver you propose, having no qualifications that way," and, throwing ?tp his position. he retired to his present home, where tor eighteen years he has devoted himself to antiMast nry. To Masonry he traces the cause of every political evil that can be named. It is at the basis, he thinks, of the lengthened civil war which Masonic manufacturers in New England wished to last as long as possible. It is opposed to civil service reform, because the offices are monopolized by Mason?. The church Is a mere mask covering in Masoniy, an Infidel conspiracy against the christian religion. "If Masoniy uses the Scriptures at all," said he to the correspondent, "it Is as a bait to the hook of heathenism. I believe," he continued, "that there are but two active parties In the country? the luiklux lodge of the south and the Masonic of the north?the first marshalling the forces of the democracy, the second the republicans."' The warfare is partisan, not national. "Yes," he exclaimed, starting up with sudden energy, ' the old Issues are dead, and each party 13 so fettered by secret obligations in its struggle for power that neither is free to meet the future wants of the country." General Phelps regards Masonry as an English Institution and Intensely aristocratic, ana says that if either Garfield or Hancock, members of such an order, are elected, Americans will discredit their own Institutions. He charges the republican government with violating the constitution, wnich prohibits the establishment of any religion, when It chartered a lodge at Washington, D. C. and in lending the Knights Templar camp equipage at Chicago. But he sees nothing good in democrats, either. The general, as he leans forward in his chair In earnest talk and rapid gesticulation, lrn presses one that he believes himself sincere In every word. Masonry has become to him the one mystery which represents all that Is not clear and open as the day, and all things hidden he thinks must be vile. He Is filled with an Idea, and of that Idea is willing to be the representative. He has no hope of convincing New England of the truth of his views, fettered as bethinks it Is in the bonds of the lo*ge, but lcoks to the west for the growth of his party. So little dees he know of what the managers or his candidacy are doing?If It has any managers?that he is uncertain whether an eleoto lal ticket- will be named in Ills own state. Brattliboro Pself he considers surrendered to the mystic apron, and the First National bank, whose condition was kept so long in the dirk, be thinks 1 ailed Indirectly because most of lis officers were Masons. origin of the horse-shoe StU'ehstition.?In the very (arly times, says a writer in B tl hcin\< Monthly, among the Celtic race an efligy of the patron saint, so common in churches and t?mplts, was much med in the dwellings aud workshojs of the people, as so-called "protection" against 111-tortune. The "glory" above the htad of these figures?which later was ofren rudely carved In wood and painted?was represented by a circular niece of polished metal, to roLvey the effect of tlie shining halo or nimbus frequently seen In Illustrations of the virgin ard other scripture subjects. Often this metal nimbus was of semi-circular form; and after the figure Itself had disappeared by reason of d-cay, the nimbus remained and was suspended in some prominent place at the entrance door, or other point commanding vie w The efflgl. tt In question were not uncommonly seen by~th side of tne doorway. In course or time the nimbus was much u-:ed as a substitute tor the latter, and was sold In shops for this pumose. The tradition of good luck as embodied in the horse s'loe theory, may tlius be easily trace!, since it betame a common occurrence, in the due course of time, ior the faithful adherent lu the b-'lle: in charms and symbols, to adopt the horseshoe worn to brightness, in the absence of any other, w hich he nailed over bis cottage door. Hence a piece of metal of this shape be jam:; associated in the common mind with supernatuial presence and care, In keeping with tile belief attaching to the original figure of the patron siilut. The Autocratic Car Driver.?Th^ attention p. the ttreet car company is called to the fol lowing incident, which goes to show how lasolent the drivers frequently are:?Ye^terdav afun.oon about three o'clock a lady In an Eas'r Broadway car rang the bell, as she wished t? get cut. instead ct stopping the car the driver * l'ipped up his mule and did not stop until the car was two blocks past, the corner where thy la ty wished to get our. " Why d dr.'t you stop the car when I rane tie bell, so I could get out?"shea;ked Indignantly. ^ " Couldn't think of It, ma m. There wa3 a fat old duffer chasing the car trying to get In."

Blackford, of Lynchburg, appearing for the trustees, and CoL Gordon, of Richmond, %'a., and Francts II. Smith, of Alexandria, va., represent those who oppose the reorganization. The argument is upon an in- ? junction obtained by Mr. Glbert, of New York, who represents about $00,000 0f the stock, to prevent the trustees from disposing of the effects of the road in order that it may be reorganized. The trustees who desire to sell represent about $500,000 worth of stock.
