Tho present season will long be rambered as a phenomenal one throughout the world, and will do much toward strengthening the bo lief in the stellar effects of perihelion. In Europe, as well as America, there are parailolics iu meteorology. Some parts, and particularly along the river Rhone, rains have ceased to fall and tho fountain heads ol that stream have dried up until tho main river is slower than ever known within tho memory of tho present generation, and unless 'there are copious showers soon we shall expect to hear of great suffering among tho peasantry of that country. At home, in tho most fer tile valley on tho face of the earth, there are now not less than 75,0(JU or 100,000 people homeless and des titute, and being fed by the hand of charity. This dessolation is caused by the floods in the Mississippi and its tributaries. It is estimated, by tho St. Louis Globo Democrat, that there is an amount of land in the Mississippi valley proper, not less than 75,000 square miles in extent, now under water. This is a scope of country that it is impossible for the mindTo grasp except by comparison. It may help' the reader to compro hend this waste of Water when we state that it is nearly or quite equal to tho . whole Sia'to of Missouri. Whon tho inundated bottoms of the tributaries of tho "Father of Waters" is taken into tho account, tho crils are crcatly'maghified. On the Pacific coast, while tho rains were descending and the floods accumulating upon the great plains of tho West, there was a dearth of rain, and an entire failure of crops was anticipated, At last the storm clouds gathered around the crested pinnaclos of the bicrras and camo swooping down upon tho lower pla teaus of tho range, and, overspread ing the valleys, showered down such quantities of snow and rain through out tho country as has seldom been recorded iu the meteorological history of California. The Central Pacific lailroad has, in spite of herculean efforts of an army of trained men, with all the appliances to do battle against tho elements at their com mand, remained blocked for days at a time, and hardly was a passage made for one train to wend its way before tho thoroughfare was closeded again. Within tho month wo may expect to hear of devastating floods pouring into tho Sacramento and San Joaquin valleysfrom their moun tain tributaries, sweeping everything in their way before them. Not with floods and droughts arc wo to stop short in this recital. In the dead of winter that dreaded foe to health "and life, tho small-pox, broke forth, almost simultaneously, throughout'the entire country, carry ing off thousands of victims in a few short weeks. Only for tho wide ex tent of knowledge, in this present age, this opidemic would have swept tho country as with a besom, and only for tho multiplicity of steamers and railways tho suffering and deaths from the floods would havo appalled tho stoutest hearts. It is mfo to say that no calamity, short of an absolute cataclysm, enn ever again work so great disasters to tho .human race as arc recorded of tho vast. Grand Central is worked and held as a private corporation, there fore tho public are not kept posted as to what profits aro realized or di vidends declared, but from the out. put of the initio it is nntura ly in ferred that their dividends of SO cents per share, or $50,000 per month are regularly paid to the stookhold ers. If this is tho case, Arizona's March dividends would bo $232,500 instead of $182,500 as credito'd.

From tho Olobo Chronicle, March 18. Another rain to-day. This whole section has been favored with so much moisture this year that the streams everywhere aro running on top of the ground, and grass is sure to be abundant during tho season. Tho Old Dominion Copper com pany has placed $150,000, as working capital, at' the disposal of its super intendent, and if needed will place as much more. The appearance of the company's mines seems to justify tho venture. Tho Centennial mine has, during tho past woek, got hoisting and pumping works in place and at work, successfully pumping water from the mine, and will doubtless bo extract ing oro the coming week. They havo some twonty-li'u men at work at present and will increase tho num ber as required. A largo quantity of machinery ar rived yesterday for tlio Old Globo Copper Mining company, and tho lousier. Both of these companies give promise of splendid working in tho near future. They aro both un der the control of activo and intelli gent men, and tho camp is looking to them for reprioval from hard times. m The Itotuunco of .tlluliic. The Mining Register, of Salt Lake City, last week published an inter esting story, showing how easily for tunes may bo made and lost in min ing. Tho Reiristcr truly says that, could tho scattered and broken thread which formed tho warp and woof of many a prospector's history bo gath ered together and united, romances without number could bo woven which would rival those framed by Wilkio Collins. Get tain events in the history of two pioneers havo re cently come to our knowledge which aro worthy of mention. Three years ago Mr. Duukiu located at Lead ville the mine .which still bears his name. Ho was poor, but ho worked faithfully and hard, in hopes that ho would strike mineral, but his money gave out and ho sohl his inteicst for $2,300. Tho purchasers, after ex pending quite a largo sum in siiikintr another shaft on the property, which failed to disclose mineral, returned to that iu which Mr. Dunkin buried his hopes, and iu sinking 7 feet fuithrr struck pay ore. 'The mine was sold a year later for $75, 00. An old-timer in tho west, who was among tho early arrivals at Rosita, located the Chieftain, adjoining tho Leavenworth, and sold it for $5, oi twenty years' time. The sum is not yet due. Before selling ho offered to give it to Captain Lambori, of the Pueblo Chieftain, fnm which tho paper derived its name, but the cap tain declined tho gift. Tho same prospector discovered tho Hum boldt, Pocahontas, Leviathan and In vincible mines, all of which ho gave to a man to whoi lie was indebted for a paltry sum. The threo first namod havo sinco yielded $700,000, and bid fair to produco twice that sum in tho near future, while tho old-timer is rich positivel . in the ownership of several lodes iu the San Miguel mountains.

The discussion will not terminate until bomo time to morrow. Jones, of Nevada, was asked this uvening whether he credited tiio re port that tho president is disposed to veto the Chinese bill, "No," replied tho senator, "some of our peoplo are apprehending a veto, but 1 utn not.

Tho coroner's jury who were empaneled in the case of the assassination of Frank Still well, returned a verdict that he came to his death from shots fired by Wyatt and Warren Karp, Doc Holli--day, Texas Jack, alias Johnson, and Mo.Masters. Intelligence received to-night'say that tho Earp parly are at Benson, and it is thought by many that they will arrive here to-niht, either to surrender to the authorities or to make way with Ike Clautou. It is now definitely known that after they killed Stillwell they searched for Clauton for some time boforo leaving Tucson. This morning about eight o'clock, eight mounted men, all heavily armed and wearing gray slouched hats, weru seen on the out skirts of the city; their animals were jaded, having apparently traveled a long distance. They are supposed to bo friends of Stillwell from Tomb stone, a party of whom left that place 1 st night. Latest accounts say that sheriffs Paul and Bulian are out with an or ganized force to take the party. A stronir posse of armed men are or ganized hero to enforce law. The indignation of tho citizens of Tucson is growing moto and moro iutciiisc. The case of the anamination is now octoro the grand juiy, which is, in session.

His master said: "You can write, can you not?" "Yes," was the reply. "Then you can put Words toge ther?" "Yes, sir." "Then," said the master, "you may takayour slato and go behind the schoolhouse, and then you can tell what il is used for, and what is to be done with it, and that will be a composition." Henry took his slate and went out. He went behind Mr. Finney's barn, which chanced to be near, and soeing a fine turnip glowing up, ho thought he knew what that was, what it was for, and what would be done with it.

II. M. Mathews, Coroner Cochise County, A T. EVIDENCE IN TIM: CASE. Dr. G. E. Goodfellow was the first wit ness ulio was called iu this case and tes tified to seeing Morgan S. Earp on the flour of Campbell & Hatch's saloon after he was shot. The doctor also stated as to the nature of the wound, and the probable cause of death. Witness knew nothing ot the circimstances which led to the wound. The wounded man lived fiomhalf to three fourths of an hour after he an ived. Dr. "W. S. Miller saw Mr. Earp before Dr. Goodfellow, and corroborated all the tciuaiks of the last named. Itobert Hutch was thin sworn and testi fied to having been ut the theater on (he night of the killing; that he nent trout there to his place of business and met Morgan Earp at the door, who saiJ, "I will play you a game of puol," and they went to die back tnd of the billiard renin and commenced to play; they placd one game iitul started on the second. Witness hud the cue iu his hand, iu the act of mak ing a play, was ut the cud ot the table next to the back of the saloon. Earp was at his right and close to him with his back lo the door. Just nt that time thcie wero two gun or pistol shots almost si multaneously, did not know at that mo inent where they came from, got out of range ol Hie iloor, just at that moment witness saw Earp fall. In about eiuht or ten seconds witness passed through the card room into the b ick yard but cou'.il not see any one as it was very dark. SlIKKMAN W. MCMASTKUS was present in the saloon nt the time the shooting was done, saw the shooting, but did not see Earp fall, us witness dropped on the floor at the time, expecting more shots would be fired. Alterwurd witness went with Mr. Holland out into the hick Yard, hut could see no one. He stated lo Inning his own theory as to the gang who" u hi the snooting, but might be mistaken. D O. TIPTON was next called, who tcstilled to being in the saloon, bitting near llietaulc whcic Morgan was playing pool, that on hearing shots witness ran to the front door, sup posing them to havo come from that way, lie ufternatd went luck i.nd assisted in looking after .Morgan. They had had no trouble with anyone during the day; had bi'eu at the theater, also hud been Warned to lo.ik out, as some of them would catch it that night. Witness had been warned sever.i' times before, by business men es peciully. 3 I'AT HOLLAND was in the card room at the time, fitting in a chair efosc to the side door leading to the p issage. Ou hearing the shot he ran into the passage way buLcouldsec no one; on coming back thtee men came out from the saloon aimed, and tearing they might take him for one of the men who did the shooting, he went around through the Oc cidental. He did not think anyone could Irive gone down the alley way to Fremont sttcel, as he did not see them, and wai out not out over eight seconds after the shoot, ing. ISUC ISAACS was in the saloon ncirthe stove talking to some gentlemen. Saw E irp fall imme diately after the shooting, and rushed out with the crowd to see what was the mat ter. MARIETTA U. SI-KNCL', being sworn, testified us follows: Reside in Tombstone, and am the wife of Peter Spence; on last Saturday, the 18lh of March, was in my house on Fictnont street; for two dajs my husband was not home, bufin Charleston, but came home about 12 o'clock p. m. Saturday. He came with two parties, one named Freis, a Ger man; I don't know the others n-uw', but he litcs in the house of Manuel Aculo. E tcli one hud a rifle. Immuliaiely alter arriving, he sent a man to take care of the horses and take them to the house of Man uel Aeusto. They then entered the fiont loom and began to converse with Fiauk Sillwel!. When they Mulshed, Frank Slil well went out and Spence wmt to bed. This is all that happened that night. Spent e remained in bed until 9 o'clock a. m. Sunday. Ft els slept there. The other man went to his li'iusc on Friday and stayed all day; went out Friday night, but returned in a shoit time to slerp. Sat urday he was out all day and up to 12 o'clock at night, when Spmce came in. Thetc was an Indian with Stilwell called ('barley. He was armed wilh a pistol and carbine. He left Saturday moining with Slilwell and camu back wilh him at 12 o'clock at night, and left about two hours alter Stilwell did. Both Charley and Stil. well were armed with pistols and carbines when tliev returned to the house Stturday night. The conversation between Spi'tirc and Stilwell and the others was currkd on in a low tone. They appeared to be talk ing some secret. When they came In 1 got oul of bud to receive them, and noticed they were excited; why, I don't know. Stil well came in the house about an hour be finu Spi'tict" and tin- ilher two.

'Ihink butuce Iell last light (the 20ih). for Sonota. Dnu't now positively that he went. On uiiilay morning Spence told me to get brmUUsl about 0 o'clock, which 11 ilia tiller we had a nuuirel. duritiL' winch he struck me and my mother, una liuitug which he threatened lo shoot me, when my mother told him he woQlJ have to show her too. His expression was. th.it if I said u word about something 1 knew about he would kill me; thai he was going to Sonoraaud would leave my dead body behind him. bpenee didn't Iell me so, bul I know he killed Morgan Earp; 1 think he did it, because he at rived at the house all of n tremble, and both the others who came with him. Spcnec's teeth were chattering when he came In. 1 asked il he wauled something to eat, and he said he did not. Myself and m ither heard the shots, and it w.is u little alter when Stil. well and the Indian, Charley, came in, ami irom one half to thtee quaiters of an hour after bpence uud the other two men came. 1 think thai Spence and t e oilier iwu men, although they might have nr rived during the night, had lett their hot scs otlteide ot town, and after the shoot, ing, had gone and got them. 1 judged they hud been doiug wrong Irom me con ililioii, while ami trembling, in which they arrived. Spence tiuU the two men had been fur several d 13 s in the habit ot leav ing home in the rcMdle of 1 lie day and le luiumg in the middle of the night, but Ihcy necr lelurued iu the same condition us ihey did ou that night, and, after hear, ing the next morning, ot Earp's death, I came to the conclusion that Spence and the others had doue the deed. Have mil seen ihe Indian, Charley, since that night; do not know whete he is. Four days ago, while mother and myscll were standing ai Silence's house, la.klng wilh Spence and Ihe Indian, Moigan Earp passed by, when Spence nudged the Indian and said, "Thai's him; that's htm." The Indian then started down the street so as lo get ahead ol him and get a good look al him. Frcis is u German who works lorAcusloas teamster. Think he was with Spence Satutday night and assisted iu killing Earp, also blilwell and Indian Charley. JIllS.

Kuow nothing mure than w hut she testified, and I lully corrobo rate all thai she has said. lilitUGS GOODUICII. On the 18th, Wyatt Ear) said to me: "1 think they weie aftir us last night.
