The State of Louisiana is at pres

A bill is before our Legislature pro
viding for the abolition of the usury
laws. These laws are a dead letter
in our statute books, and might as
well be repealed at once. Who
knows of any money being obtained
now-a-days at six per cent ? Banks,
bankers, and all classes of moneyed
men demand, and greedily take all

The Democrats of the Missouri
Legislature have "floored" Frank
Blair, and elected Lewis V. Boot

er recalcitrant Republican bas met

bitter one, and op to the last Blair

stood 94 for Boot, 47 for Blair.
Thus one by one, are the Democrats
contemptuously casting aside squeez
ed Liberal Republican oranges.
Boot is a prominent citizen of St

the rebellion.

In the Constitutional Convention
the business thus far, has been mainly
the introduction of resolutions pro
posing amendments, and their name is
legion; apparently a portion of the
members conceive themselves to be
in a Legislative assembly where the
most minute details may be provided
for by enactments. Up to date but
two new sections have been adopted
in committee of the whole. The first
of these provides for bolding the
State election upon the day of the
Presidential election in November,
instead of in October, as is now the
law, and the second changes the day
for holding the Spring election from
March as at present, to the third
TW.ul.yof February.. The latter
provision docs not apply to cities

probably not half of trie great nae

largely a class of industrious working

for all men struggling for a foothold

In Washington city a few days
since, in tnc first uongregauouui
church, the importance of having good

editors was considered, and prayer
was offered, especially in behalf of
the Washington journals, though the
editors of other latitudes were not
forgotten. We have had a notion for
some time, that a majority or our
Democratic brethern are "past pray
ing for," but happily the elections are
all over fov the prcsent.and perchance
some stray beam of grace may pene
trate the cloud of with which
they enveloped themselves as with a

much anxiety the effects of this spec
ial intercession on Whitelaw Reid,
Brick. Pomerot, Theodore Tilton,
Victoria Woodhcll and a few oth
er fellows of our craft, and if signs of
improvement become visible, we shall
intercede with the First Congrega
tional church to try their band on a
few of our subscribers, whom we
wish to have converted from the er
ror of their ways, learned to be just,
and taught to otce no man aught but
love. This .effected, we sball all be
ready for the millennium.

Next day when the doctor Tcacbcd
the house he found the woman bad
given birth to a child and both bad
frozen to death.
A commercial traveler in this city,
wha was caught in the storm, rear
New Ulm, and witnessed its terrible
severity, gives it as his opinion that
it has resulted in greater loss of life,
and greater damage to the State than
did the Sioux massacre of 1862.
Winona, Minn., Jan. 15. The
body of a man frozen to death was
picked up in a garden on the south
side or the river at Medalia on Thurs
day. He evidently lost himself, was

lay down and died.
A dispatch from Lincoln station,
on the St Paul and Sioux City road.
on Sunday, says: Mr. R. Kirk start
ed for tne timber to procure a load of
wood. His cattle were frozen but tic
was missing.
Later. Mr. Kirk was round near
Garden City, along the Sioux City
road, on Saturday, dead.
The number frozen west of Manka-
to foots up twentv-six; as follows:
Lake Crystal, 2: Medalia, 5; St
James, 10; Mountain Lake, 2; Win
dom, 3 ; Heron Lake and Worthing
ton, 3. These are given as reliable.
All the above named points report a
number of persons still missing.
A report was received at Mankato,
on Monday night, from Minnesota
Falls, which says that eleven persons
had been found frozen to death.
Seven persons 4bree women, two
men and two children were found in

and a half of Marshall they were
overtaken by the storm and lost their
way. The nephew Trozc to death.
On Wednesday afternoon the child
died in its mother's arms. On Mon
day mornicz, when found, the man's

- 3fow that the postal telegraph bill
is about to come up for action, it will
h interesting to kuw that Dr. Loo-
tnU' thory of drawinir a Bupply of
electricity from an electrical stratum
at an elevated position in the atroos-
phere is engaging tne attention oi toe
government authorities. Dr. Loomis
has just been interviewed, with a
view to estimate the chances of sav
ing a few millions to tho government,
and yet tbe Senate committee on com
merce has reported adversely to incor
porating a company for the express
purpose of testing the Loomis theory
at their own expense, though a bill
for the purpose unanimously passed
tho House at the last sossion, una not
a dollar is asked from tbe government
to perform the test The probability
of utilizing the Loomis theory to an
immense advantage is growing great
er in the public mind as the subject is
investigated. It involves no less a
consummation devoutly to be wished,"
than securing a universal and unlitu
ited supply of light, beat and motive
power from the invisible air above the
earth. That such a Bupply exists, is
generally admitted by scientists, and
the means of reaching and controlling
it is the only new project that lr.
Loomis proposes, and for this purpose
he proffers to use the tops of high
mountains, anchored balloons, or mod
ern towers of Babel. As Dr. Frank
lin drew the lightnings from heaven
by the use of a kite, when a storm
drew a part of the electrical stratum
near the earth,-o Dr. Loomis propo
ses to go a step further, and to carry
the war of intellect upon this physical
power above, and cut off a part of its
normal base of supplies, ith such
an object in view, it has been suggest
ed that Congress should at once ap
propriate $100,000 to secure a thor
ough test of the Loomis idea. Surely,
it should not refuse legislative sanc
tion to company of individuals wljo

The position of counsel for the gov
ernment in the Credit Mobilier prose
cutiona has been tendered to Hon. A
F. Perry, who has formally accepted,

came off at the White House last

and all in full evening dre s. Mrs.

passed very pleasantly, with the usual
crowd of youth, beauty, middle aged
and old ladies and gentlemen, who
were politely attended to by the at
tache of the White House. The us
ual number of rich and extravagant
dresses was on exhibition, but the
hours passed pleasantly enough until
10 o'clock, when tho guests began to
file out of the rooms, and the old pre

alone to its legitimate occupants. To

many of tbe members remained over
to attend tbe organization of the

They all organized with tbe exception

were three members from Allegheny,
viz., Jiallantme, sample and itamscy ;
four of the committee were from

from Allegheny, together with Henry

A Sleepias- Mtk Precipitated lat
the Allegheny River Oae Passenger
Killed and Several Inared A Bro
ken Ball the Allegheny Valley
Bailraad Causes the Aeeldent.
By the calamity of a broken ruil, a
sleeping car attached to an express
train on tbe Allegheny Valley Rail
road, was yesterday precipitated from
the track and down an embankment
into the Allegheny river. The frac
tured iron was encountered near
Scrub Grass station, at twelve o'clock
noon, by the train which left this city
at eight o'clock the evening previous.
Owing to numerous land-slides, un
usual delays were experienced, and it
was not until late in the morning
that the ordinary running time could
be made. All the cars, of which
there were three for the accommoda
tion of passengers, were well filled.
Suddenly a lurch on the part of the.
sleeping car, broke the coupling at
taching it to the balance of the train.
For a few yards it bounded over the
ties, startling its inmates with a
sudden sense of danger, and then
with a plunge went over the bank,
down twenty feet to the icy river..
As soon as the jerk by which the
coach parted from its companion was
felt by the engineer, brakes were put
on and the train stopped. The cars
remaining on the track were instantly
deserted, passengers and officials alike
rushing to the assistance of those who
were in peril of death. It was with
suqrie and pleasure that many ot
those who had taken tbe involuntary
plunge bath were seen to clamber out
unhurt, but further examination dis
closed the fatal seriousness of the ac
cident. One of the first removed was
Mr. Joseph Ross Protbonotary of
this county who was found to be
badly hurt- After him was removed
the body of Mr. James Reiter of
Allegheny, quite dead, with marks of
terrible wounds upon him. follow
ing, was Mr. Rich of Oil City who
was found not to be seriously hurt
These comprised the casualties among
the passengers. Of the employees of
tbe railroad company, Wiluam Garrett
road master, Wi)Iiin K'P'n. brakemani
and C. H. Cornell, freight conductor,
were found to be slightly injured.
Superintendent Hepburn, of tho Oil
Creek Railroad, was also slightly.
AH of these were removed to a botef
near the scene of the accident, but
were able subsequently to continue
the journey as far as Oil City, which
point was reached at six o'clock p. M.,
and where they received the care of
the surgeons of the road.
Mr. Heiter, who was killed, was a
prominent business man of this city.
He has for a number of years been
engaged in the manufacture ot boilers
and iron tanks, on Water street, near
the Point, and resided on Irwin
avenue, "Allegheny. He was about
forty year? of age, and bad been
married but a few years. His re
mains were placed upon the express
train East, which arrived at the scene
shortly after the accident, and reached
the city at nine o'clock last evening.
Mr. Ross was taken to Oil City and
placpd under the care of an exper
ienced phvsieian afr the Petroleum
House. lie is receiving every attenr
tion at the hands of tho railroad offi
cials, and telegraphed to his family
last night that though his injuries,
which arc mostly internal, are severe,
he has strong hopes of recovery.-
Tho latest advices show that none
of the coaches left the track with the
exception of the one in which the in
juries were received. The rail was
probably broken by tho car preceding
the last, as no shock was experienced
by those occupying the others, and
the cause of tbe accident was a
mystery uulij thp track was subse
quently examined- The cnF went
down front first, but rolled over when
about half way between tho edge
and the water, and remained on its
side. The fires were extinguished,
otherwise the fearful scene of the
Cross Cut ' horror might have been
again enacted. Fortunately the car
was well built and of sufficient
strength to resist tho shock of the
descent, o which fact may be attrib
uted tho smajj of life- It is the
first fatal accident which Lim hap
pened since the road was built, which
speaks well for the efficiency . and
care of the officers Pittsburgh Dis

' Extvnnrdinary Bank Babhery,
Lancaster, Jan. 16 A daring;
robberv was perpetrated here yester
day on the Mechanics' Bank. Be
tween twelve and one o'clock two
men engaged tbe cashier's attention,
who wad alone in the bank, by Belling
$75 in gold and silver, th latter being
in- small pieces.
One or the men had on screeching
boots, and walked continually while
ig confederate and the cashier were
counting tho' n'i6rey. Pending the
negotiation, a third party entered the
bank by a rear window and entered
the vault, which was open, and ab
stracted convertible bonds to the
amount of over six thousand dollars,
and other registered and judgment
bouds amounting to over forty thous
and dollars..
The thieves, four in number, were
seen about the bank during the fore
noon, and tho men who entered from
the rear were 'seen by women in the
restaurant under the bank, but were,
of course, not Buspected. Jfo cine to
their whereabouts has been obtained.
ft was wittily said of a beautiful
French Jitcrarr lady that she had but
one faolt her husband.
The raueral r Napoleon.
Ciiiselhcrbt, Jauuary 15. The
funeral of His lute Majesty Napoleon
the Third, took place this morning.
The residence of tbe deceased was
thronged with friends of the family,
who arrived from all parts of the con
tinent Great crowds of people from
Loiulun arrived at an early hour to
witnens tbe final ceremonies -to the
illustrious dead, and tbe road to tbe
chaoel wa lined with spectators to
view the procession as it passed.
Many adherents of the late ex-Finper-or
were present to take part in the
obsequies and pay their lur-t tribute
to their leader. Tbe immense throng
of spectators assembled remained
quiet and decorous through tout the
proceedings. Tho funeral procession
started for the chapel at eleven o'clock
and moved in the following order :
Man bearing the tri-color borne on an
ash stick, cut at the last moment be
fore the cortege moved. -Tbe deputa
tion of workingmen from Paris with
uncovered, beads, ; bearing their
wreaths; the Chaplain of tbe family
bearing aloft a golden crucifix ; the
hearse, drawn by eight horses, was
driven by a postilion, and the mourn
ers, who numbered eight hundred 111
all, and included the Prince Imperial,
who went uncovered, Prince Jerome
Napoleon, Prince Joaquin, Prince
Ac-hille McRouher, and many dis
tinguished Imperialists, English noble
men, priests and others. The Prince
Imperial was very pale and exhibited
traces of the anguish he has under
gone. c.uipres.s bugeme was too ill
to attend the funeral. The coffin
was covered with immortelles and
violets. There was no funeral sermon
at the chapel, but the Bishop of South-
wark sang a requiem over tbe remains.
He was assisted bv Father Goddard,
the spiritual adviser of tbe late ex-
Lmperor, aud all the priests who were
chaplains at the Tuilerics during the
reign of Napoleon.
Mr. Lutz. organist of M. George s
cathedral, London, was present at
the chapel with his choir and conduct
ed the musical portion of the services.
Tbe remains were deposited in the
sacristy which has been formed into a
mortuary chapel, until the removal of
the body to France for final intermcDt.
Tbe procession was very long : the
hearse was at tbe chapel before the
end of the procession had left the
family mansion. All carriages and
pedestrians were drawn up three
abreast across tbe roadway and in
that order proceeded to the chapcL
Tbe Prince Imperial and Prince Na
poleon returned from the chapel in
one carriage. .They were cheered by
the crowds through which they pass
ed. At least thirty thousand people
gathered to witness the funeral pro
