WEDNESDAY, J motif 38, lsti. On Wednesday last the Legisla ture of New York re-elected lion. Roscoe Cosklisg.TJ. S. Senator, for another term of six rears. Alexander IJ, Stephens, late Vice President of the rebel confeder acy, has been nominated for Congress, to fill a vacancy occasioned by the death of General Wbight, from the Eighth district of Georgia. Mr. Ste phens has accepted the nomination and will doubtless be elected. Toe C S. Senate has adopted a resolution abolishing the franking privilege on and after July next Should the Ilouse concur, the Tost offiee Department will be self sustain ing, and postage can be largely re duced, as it is the transportation of matter free of charge that makes the mails so bulky, and so expensire to transport The lower House of Congress, a few days since, by a very large ma jority, voted for the repeal of the bankrupt law. If the Senate should concur, we will be restored to the old order of things, when every indi gent debtor will have to pay the last penny he owes before be can be dis charged from his liabilities. Those desiring the bcncGts of the present law bad better hurry up. It is reported from Harrisburg that Gov. Geary devoted the last days of his official life to the pardon ing of Bcoundrels from the penetcntia rics. Ilis ex-Excellency during his term of office exhibited a peculiar fondness for the exercise of the par doning power, attributed by some, to his excessive kindness of heart, the moving power being quite as proba ble a vanity that led him to lelieve that in Lis person was vested a wis dom and knowledge superior to that possessed bv the courts of the State, The heaviest corn crop ever grown in the United States was that of last year, which the Agricultural report states at the huge total of 1,100,000, 000 bushele. Not onlv is this the lareest crop, but it is said to be corn of a better quality and of greater in tnnsic value than usuaL Iowa was the banner corn-GTowing State, her average being nearly lorty-one bushels an acre. Unfortunately for some of those who would like to have the Iowa corn, it takes the price of four bushels of Baid corn to get one bushel to the Atlantic markets. Late information from Harrisburg states that, a perfect flood of bills ask ing for special Legislation has been poured into the Legislature. It has been predicted, that in anticipation of the ConstitutionalConvention restrain ing this ktnd of legislation an attempt would be made to secure grants and privileges for individual and local benefits, and it turns out that the prediction was true. Governor II art- ran it has taken sound ground in his inaugural on this subject, and we trust, if the Legislature should weak ly give way to the pressure, and lend itself to the schemes to frasstrate the good intentions of the Convention, that he will promptly and unsparing ingly use the veto power with which he is armed. General John B. Gordan, the famous rebel commander, was on Wednesday last, 22d, elected U. S, Senator by the Legislature of Geor gia. What a commentary on the bowl of the last campaign, about the down-trodden and disfranchised white men of the South, and the nursing of the hatreds of the late war. Here is one of the ablest and most determined enemies of the Union, who eight years 6incc, was assisting to lead the Losts of rebellion, returned to the highest Legislative Tribunal of the country, there to assist in making laws for the government which he did his utmost to destroy. Could there be a more sublime spectacle of forgive ness and leniency on the part of a Nation, exhibited to the world f The inaugural address of our new Governor,, unlike the State papers of his immediate predecessor, is a model of brevity. It is a plain, practical, terse document, dealing with the leading subjects of interest to the people of tho State, devoid of parti sanship, without attempt at ornament, and like its author modest and matter-of-fact The people will heartily endorse his suggestions in regard to the public debt and sinking fand, the the discrimination in taxation in fa vor of the industrial interests of the State, and the establishment of schools where the soldiers' orphans may be taught trades after they are educated. We commend this ad dress to our readers, and feel satisfied that an attentive perusal of it, will satisfy them of the practical common sense, and sound judgment of our new Governor. In fixing the time for the spring election throughout the State on a day in February we think the Consti tutional Convention has made a grand mistake, tn this section of the Com monwealth at that season of year, the - weather is generally the most inclem ent.and the roads frequently impassa ble. . The people often cannot, and as a rule would not turn out in such weather as we generally have in February, to attend these elections. Consequently, those who live near the polling places, would virtually control them. Surely, in so import ant a matter as the election of all their local officers, the interests and convenience of the people should have been better consulted. , By the wan ton disregard of public convenience in these changes, which are not re fami, the Convention shows a stolid .disregard of popular sentiment, and .endanger the adoption of the entire jnstrnraent. It is not pleasant to read that a , handful of Indians have whipped thrice their number f Federal troops.yct such is the news wr receive from California. It is rumored through tue papers that the opponents of tho Local Op tion Law are gathering in force at Harrisburg for the purpose of having the act repealed, and tbat tho liquor interests of the State have raised a fund of two hundred thousand dollars for the purpose of effecting their ob ject Experience has shown that money is a potential agent at Harri burg, but we hardly think that a ma jority of the members of the present Legislature are either sufficiently cor rupt, or reckless of public opinion to lend themselves to the repeal of a yet untried law. The member who does so vote, must do it with the full assu rance that his motives will be more than suspected, and himself ticketed for political oblivion. On Tuesday last, Hon. Simon Cam eron was elected U. S. Senator by the Legislature of Tcnnsylvania for the fourth time. Gen Cameron was first elected to the Senate in 1845, to fill the vacancy occasioned by the resignation of Mr. Buchanan to ac cept a position in Polk's cabinet ne was again elected in 1857. In 1863 he was a candidate, and was beaten one vote by Bcckalew. In 1867 he was elected for the third time for a term which expires on the fourth day of March next.and now he has been chosen for the fourth time. Tho re-election of Gen. Cameron is a deserved recognition of his faith ful services to the people of Pcnnsyl vania. In his long career he has al ways been true to their interests, and in return,their representatives have re newed their pledges of confidence in him. General Cameron is well stricken in years, but with a constitu tion unimpaired, vigorous health, and strong intellectual powers, he has doubtless a still further career of usefulness and honor before him. Governor Hartranft nas ap pointed Hon. Samuel E. Dimmick, of Wayne county, Attorney General, CoL M. S. Quat, of Beaver, Secrcta ry of the Commonwealth, and has nominated Hon. T. J. Biqiiam, of Pittsburgh as Commissioner of the new Bureau of Statistics, established bv the last Legislature. Mr. Dim mick is at present a member of the Constitutional Convention, has the reputation of being one of the ablest lawyers in his section of the State, and his appointment is received with universal approbation. Col. Quat is well known, especial ly in the west, as a' shrewd, able and active politician. He was formerly private secretary to Governor Curtin, is familiar with the duties of his of fice, and has the ability to make a first-rate Secretary of State. Hon. T. J. Bioham is widely known as the former Senator from AlWhenv count v. is possessed of O ml mt ' both learning and industry, and is the very man to take charge of and effec tively organize the new department of which he is made chief. The Governor has also selected Major A- W. Morris, of Philadel phia, who was a gallant soldier of the late war, as his private Secretary. Tfce Imdiaa W. San Francisco, January 20. A dispatch lrom Yreka to-day states that a mcssentrcr had just arrived at that place from the headquarters of General Wheaton, commanding the troops in the campaign against the Modoc Indians. A severe oauie was fouirht last Friday. Troops under command of Wheaton numbered 2o0 regulars, two companies of Oregon volunteers, twenty-nve uamornia riflemen, commanded by Captain Fairchilii and a few Klumath Indians, altogether about 400 men. The battle took place on the eastern shore of Tub Lake. On Friday forenoon Captain Bern ard opened the battle against Captain Jack, who bad about two hundred warriors concealed among the rocks along a line two miles in length. Wheaton heard the firing, and bad no alternative but to move to the aid of Captain Bernard. The troops fought r m e . - . J 1. an unseen ioe irom o a. m. io uum, under a terrific fire, during which scarcely one Indian was seen. Loss to the troops, forty killed and woun ded ; loss of the Modocs unknown. the troops were finally obliged to re treat to the camp. Benard's forces bore the burnt of the battle, and suf fered terribly. All the cavalry fought on foot Among the killed arc Frank Trimble, J. R. Brown, and G. W. Roberts, mortally wounded; Capt Perry, of the Regulars, seriously; Lieutenant, Kyle, slightly wounded. The movement was called a forced reconnoisancc of Captain Jack's po sition. It is said oue thousand men will be required to dislodge Captain Jack. Troops for the present will only try to pre vent the Modocs raiding on the settlement and wait lor rem forcements. Part tm Paaarwrrr Trsla Tkrtwo About eicht o'clock on Sunday morning an accident occurred on the Pittsburg, Baltimore and Washington railroad, about two miles Last of Con nellsville, which came very nearbeing a second Scrubgrass. disaster. A gravel train had a few moments pre viously pulled oil the main track, and the Bwitcb bad . unfortunately been left unadjusted. - The passenger train doe in this city at 10:55 came along at ordinary speed, and the engineer did not notice tbcppcn switch until the locomotive was almost on top of it The engine was immediately reversed, bnt too late, and the car with its tender went off the track and over an embankment fifteen feet deep, land ing on the bank of the 1 oughiogheny river. The engineer and firemen were both carried down with the car ; but as it did not turn oxer they were uninjured except by the shock they received. Conductor Wfealcy was also considerably affected by the shock. Otherwise there were no per sons injured except from slight bruises received by the sudden jolting of the cars. The locomotive, though disa bled, was but very slightly damaged. Another engine was procured and the train after being delayed about forty minutes proceeded on its course. Considering the danger of the situa tion the brightness of the results are amongthe most remarkable on record. OCR WASHINGTON I.ETTEH. Washington, Jan 23, 1873. fOGGT LOUISIANA. It appears that two Senators have been elected by the Kellogg Legisla ture of Louisiana. One Mr. Ray, for a very short unoxpired term of Sena tor Kellogg, whose gubernatorial Hon ors require bis resignation from the Senate, and tho other, acting Govern or Pinchback, who has been elected to fill a six-vear term. The muddle in all the affairs of that State, and the mix-up of these circumstances has be fogged many anxious inquirers re garding the exact status of Senatorial matters there. Warmouth is the cen tral figure in the entire affair. He, at last accounts, was highest in the bal lot for United States Senator by his own Legislature. It is said that the decision of Judge Dnrell in favor of the Kellogg Board of Canvassers has already been made. This is yet apoc ryphal, but if it prove true, will pretty well settle the legal status of Kellogg, Ray and Pinchback. . , ANOTHER INDIAN WAR. The Modoc war, in which so many of our troops were recently killed and wounded, turns out, as usual, to have resulted from attempts on the part of the government authorities to do the Modoc Indians a great injustice. The disposition to encourage settlers in taking all tho good land, and making Indian reservations out of rocky bar rens, is at the bottom of this Indian war. The Klamoth reservation, to which these Indians were assigned, is admitted to have been badly select ed. It is subject to killing frosts through all tho Summer, and deep snows in Winter, being a high valley among the Cascade Mountains. No more cheerless region for farming pur poses could perhaps be found in the country. Goaded bv cold and hun ger, the Indians kill a few settlers and ravage a settlement as the means their experience teaches them to be most certain of calling the attention of the Government and securing better treat ment. It appears that Agent Dyar says his Indians, the Modocs, can not sustain themselves on the reservation assigned them, and the result is, they are turned upon the settlements. They arc therefore fighting for their lives and those or their families. They fortify themselves in the fast nesses of the rocks on the mountain sides, and fight with terrible energy, seldom giving the troops a chance to reach theni, while they pick off the troops with impunity. This misman- atrement of the Modocs is in direct violation of the President's Indian policy, and the sooner the injustice is receded from, and the Indians are treated with justice and humanity, the better it will be for the settlers of that region, as well as the finances of tho country. A war carried on in that section must take with it millions, before actual force can catch and com pel the Indians to succomb to what, to them, is worse than death slow starvation and constant dread of fam- ime from snow drifts hemming tbcia into a compass just small enough to keep the dreadful end of their misera ble lives continually before them. PEN8ION OFFICE BILL. The committee on pensions in the Ilouse of Representatives have unan imously agreed to report a bill to amend the pension laws now in force, and make an important change in the salaries of those engaged in that bu reau. I be salary ot toe commission er, chief clerk, and heads of divisions, will be raised to a sum more in accord ance with the amount ot labor per. formed and responsibilities assumed. A new office will be created, that of assistant commissioner, with a salary of $3,000, the amount now received by the commissioner. The fees of ex amining surgeons all over the United States will be raised, thus enabling mure experienced pbvsicians to fill positions which they now positively decline on account of insufficiency of compensation. One of the most important sections of this bill is contained in the propo sition to publish in each county news paper a list of the pensioners of that community, thus by publicity prevent ing gross frauds on the government, which are now daily being perpetra ted by reason of the 6ecrccy which is maintained in regard to pensions. PHONOGRAPHY. The Buell records which were lost from the office of the War Depart ment, have been supplied by the pho nographic notes taken on the spot at the time of the Court of Inquiry. The notes have been re-transcribed in long hand, andcover a long period of great historic record. It makes 3,361 pages of legal cap, averaging 225 words to the page. Mr. Benja min Pittman, one of the best phonog raphers of the land, arrived here to day with this record for use here. LOCAL. The House bill, as amended, provi ding for the construction of ten, in stead of six, war vessels, passed the Senate by the decided vote of 39 to 8. The House bill, amended, abolish ing the franking privilege in toto, has just passed the Senate. It will go to the Ilouse for concurrence. Armstrong, the sitting delegate from Dakota, has been confirmed in his seat, and the expenses of his op ponent have been paid by congres sional order. . cm. A Horrible Harder. Little Rock, January 20. A horrible murder occurred near the penitentiary Saturday night. Enoch Jackson, colored, while asleep was knocked in the head with a dray pin and killed by bis wife and another woman. ' After they had succeeded in killing him they threw the body into the fire. Soon after the wife called a neighbor saying that when she retired Enoch was sitting by the fire, and that she was awakened by a strange smell and discovered her husband in the fire ; that he had no doubt fallen in. The body was dragged out, when it was discovered that thi man had been murdered.. The children, who were deeping in the room, state they saw the mother and another woman first knock. Enoch in the head and then throw the body into the fire. -Enoch was a drayman. A coroner's inquest was held on the body to-day, and rendered a verdict that deceased came to his death from blows inflicted by bis wife and another woman, who afterward threw the body in the fire. Both women are in jail Farther FrMB the r the stasia : - War. : San Francisco. January 24. The men woanded in the late fight with the Modocs are doing well, and there are no further deaths. General Whea ton established his headquarters at Lone Tree, and will commence active operations on the arrival of reinforce ments. He has detachments station ed to prevent the the savages raid ing on the settlements. Much ex citement was created to-day at Yreka by the report that a Modoc scout was seen in that vicinity. The' report is pronounced unfounded. Nothing has been heard from the troops which left this city on Monday night Ol'B IIAMIftBCKG LETTER. Harrisburg, January 23, 1873. The House committees, as announc ed by Speaker Elliott, seem to meet with ircncral approval. I notice that your representative, Mr. "McMillen Las been appointed to serve on the folio winir committees, Education, Pen sions and Gratuities, Divorces, Banks and Manufactures, several of which are very important committees. Tuesday was an extremely disa greeable day rain, sleet and snow all mixed up yet despite the bad weather, the inauguration was an iiu posing success. 1 be procession.whicb is said to have been the finest ever had here on any like occasion for years, was under the marshalship of Gen. Charles M. rrevost, of l'bila- delphia, and moved off at 1 1 o'clock a. m., precisely, parading through the principal streets, arriving at the Capitol at 1 o'clock. The military m line numbered about 2,500, and em braced npwards of thirty organiza tions; the Grey Reserve Regiment of Philadelphia making a particularly fine display. The nnmber of bands of music was twenty-three, among them were Beck's, of Philadelphia, Fisk's Ninth Regiment band of New York, the Marine, of Washington, and the National Cornet, of Norri9- town. Several fire companies from Harrisburg. Philadelphia and else where were also in line. But proba bly by far the most interesting and agreeable feature of the procession was the presence of the soldiers' or phans to the number of 700. . The boys were all comfortably and neatly clad in regulation suits, and marched with the precision of veterans. 1 heir fine appearance tells its own story, in tbat the Mate is indeed acting the part of a parent towards the children of her fallen heroes. After the pa rade the children were all provided with a free dinner. Upon the arrival of the Governor elect at the Capitol, a salute was fired by a battery of ar tillerv from tho arsenal. After the oath of office had been administered by Speaker Anderson, Governor Hartranft delivered his in augural address, pledging a faithful administration of the affairs of the State. Special legislation was strong ly condemned, and the Governor de clared tbat no measure impairing the value oftbe sinking fund should receive his sanction. After the inaugural cer emonies were over, Gov. Hartranft, Gov.. Geary, and the Ilouse commit tees on Epucation visited the Court House, where were tho soldiers' or phans. Appropriate addresses were delivered to the children, in which they were told what the State had done and would do for them, and what the State expected from them on their part The election for United States Sen ator came off on Tuesday and on Wednesday. Both Houses met in joint Ression for the purpose of cast ing up the vote and declaring the re sult of tho same, when it appeared that Hon. Simon Cameron was again elected, havinc received 76 votes to 50 for W. A. Wallace, 1 for Mr. Wright and 1 for Mr. Marshall. On Tuesday evening Senator Cam eron was visited by the Cameron Llub of Philad'a accompanied by Beck's Band, and serenaded. The veteran Senator acknowledged the compliment in a neat speech, in which he thank ed bis friends and tbc people of the State for the many honors heaped upon him. A resolution has been introduced in the House that no Senator or Rep resentative shall receive extra pay for serving on any committee during the session. Should this pass, it will ef fect a saving of $30,000 in the matter of contested elections alone. The Judicial contest from the Bucks and Montgomery District has assumed a curious phase. Mr. Roberts, whose seat as President Judge is contested, has resigned, and Governor Geary filled the vacancy by appointing thereto. Mr. Smith still contests the election before a joint committe of the Senate and Ilouse, and if successful, Geary's man will probably be turned out in the cold. The recent freshet has caused great destruction of property along the lower Susquehanna. At several places the ice gorped, causing the water to over flow the banks of the river. At seV eral points the water has been four feet higher than ever known before. Port Deposit, Md., has suffered se verely; it is said that it will take a month to repair the track of the Phil adelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad at that point Tbe (load la the Baaqaehanaa. Port Deposit, January 23. The great ice flood inundation continues. The ice is gorged between the island and the lower end of the village, and the breakwater floods the vessels. There are five or six feet of water in the streets fronting on the Susque-: hacna. All tho buildings on the lower side of the street are deserted, the people being compelled to leave to save their lives. The quantity of ice in the river is immense. The gorge is more leartui than that oi 1857. Tbe railroad track and depot are four feet under water. The tele graph office is deserted in the center of the town, and a temporary one has been opened at Rock Run and at Hockus Hollow, on the north side of the town. The ice varies from twenty to fifty feet in hight, and is caked upon the streets and along the wharf. In tbe upper part of the town sloops and canal-boats are driven to the main street, blockading the railroads. Tbe water was rising up to midnight, but it appears to be falling now. If the ice should break at Safe Harbor and McCalls it will probably be very disastrous for this place. If tbe water keeps falling and leaves the lee as it is, it will take a month to get the railroad and telegraph in good shape. It will . give a month's employment to about .one hundred and fifty men. . . 1 bo only way to get through the streets is by boats. Rumors from AlcCoU s and other points op tbe river say that gorges there have gono away, and a mass of ice thus forced is expected to arrive here this evening. All sorts of pre dictions are indulged in. The Port Deposit railroad is covered for a dis tance of four or five miles with many thousand tons of ice. Houses, barns, and canal-boats, timber, etc.. are cov ered with water and ice. . The streets are only navigable by boats, and that only where the ice has not encroach ed upon them. . All the lower part of tbc town fronting the river is des troyed by ice. Much suffering and loss of property has already occurred, and much more in anticipated, even should the water abate and allow tho ice to remain. Many weeks of labor and many hundreds of laborers will be required to remove the ice. The telegraph companies have already suffered heavily, their wires being carried away for a distance of two miles. The Automatic company whose wires cross the river here having been caught by the ice and carried off, will suffer the most ' llARRISBlllG. The Peausalvaata Lefflslatare. Harrisburg, January 20, 1873.

Chaar af Presidents. lesterday afternoon an. important siecial meeting of the Directors ot the Pittsburgh, Washington and Bal timore Railroad was held at the of fice, on Water street, to take action in reference to a vacancy in the Pres idency. For some time past Presi dent Wra. Kcyser has found the du ties ot his dual position President of tbo Connellsvillc route and Vice President of tbe Baltimore & Ohio increasing upon him, and atlast found in necessary to relinquish one or the other of his official connections. Hav ing, in connection with bis duties as ice President of the Baltimore Road, the special charge of tho new route to Chicago, which is under way, he found tbe work sufficiently exten sive to require all his time and ener gies, and to necessitate, in justice to himself, and tbe work he had in band, his retiracv from the presidency. This fact was made known to the di rectors recently, and resulted in the special meeting yesterday, at which tbo resignation was accepted and the vacancy filled by the election of Men dous Cohen, Esq., of Baltimore, was unanimously chosen. Mr. Keyser made an exceedingly efficient and useful officer, and under his management the "Connellsvillc Route" has had a reputation for safe ty and accommodation for travelers, and promptitude for shippers, second to none other that centres in Pitts burgh. His successor, Mr, Cohen, comes with tho highest rccom mendations. He was formeily man ager of tho Lehigh Si Susquehauna Railroad, and has been connected with tho Hudson River Road, and the Baltimore Si Ohio, where he has dis played peculiar aptitude for "railroad ing, and has acquired extensive e.vicrienco that m&kes him wortbv ot the cordial indorsement he received from the Board vesterdav. The change will take place iuiincdi atcly, and President Cohen will have his headquarters in Baltimore. ntUburyh Qazette, Jan. 14. ECKOPE. London, January 23,. The report of a terrible marine disaster last night in the English channel has just been received. The North fleet which sail ed froni here several days ago for Australia with 412 passengers, exclu sive of hor crew, came in collision at midnight, two miles off Dunginess, with an unknown foreign steamship, and was cut to the water's edge. Only eighty-five persons are known to have been saved. . It is believed that every other person who was on board has found a watery grave. No attention was paid by the steamship to the emigrant vessel after the colli sion, and she proceeded on ber course, leaving the sufferers to their fate. Later. When the collision be tween tbe emigrant ship North fleet and the unknown steamship happen ed last night, a panic occurred on the former vessel. Tbe passengers, who were asleep, rushed from their berths to every portion of the ship where they thought they might be safo and utterly refused to obey tho orders of tho Captain. That officer, as a last resort to enforce obedience to his commands, was compelled to fire up on the terror-stricken people. One of them was wounded. It is believed that if the passengers had obeyed the orders of the Captain more of them would have been saved. Additional particulars of the terri ble marine disaster off Dunariness ighthonse last night have been re ceived. The Northfleet was lying at anchor at the time the collision oc curred. Her cargo consisted of rail way iron. Three hundred and twen ty-one persons were drowned, includ ing the captain of the ill-fated vessel.

The loco motive of tie Frccport Express on the Northwestern Railroad, coming to this city this morning, jumped the track just as the train was passing a switch on which stood the May wood local passenger train, and ran into the latter, injuring Mr. Clydesdale, Trife and three daughters and a son who were sitting in the rear passenger car. Mr. Clydesdale is reported to be dy ing, but the rest of the family were not seriously hurt The accident is thought to be due to the accumula tion of ice at the frog or an imperfect rail. - ; Tbo express was running at the rate of about twenty-five miles an hour, but tbe force was broken some what before the collision by the loco motive, which hid broken , from tbe rest of tbo train, striking on a number of ties. Tbe rest of tho train kept the main track, but by oscilla tion probably was thrown against the side cars of the other train and smashed them, considerably. Fortu nately passengers who were expect ing to come in on the May wood train were on the platform or there might have been great loss of life. Mr. Clydesdalo is a well known real es tate dealer tn this city, whose resi dence is in May wood. Frosea tm Death. Yesterday there arrived in this city by the Wilmar train, one cf the poor sufferers by the late terrific storm. This man, whose name is Charles O'Xcil. wan taken to the Sis ter's Hospital, to undergo tho opera tion of amputation of both feet and an arm. . 5 . His story, as gathered by a Pre reporter, is substantially as follows : On the morning of the terrible Tues day, a party of five men, Charles O'Neil and his brothers John and Stephen, and Mike and Thomas Hol- den, started from Beaver Fulls, Ren ville county, with five load.-i of grain for u ilm ir market, ViImar is dis tant from Beaver Falls about thirty five miles of open prairie, twenty of which are without a settler. Quite early iu tho afternoon it began to snow, but the wind was light and the party pressed on, anxious to reach Wilmar with no delay. . . - When within about eight miles of Wilmar the wind began to increase, and blew directly in their faces. Thev viewed tbe situation with considera ble dismay, and about half concluded to turn about and retreat to a house about eight miles in the rear, and for tunate would it have been had thev done so. But about a mile ahead was the bouse of a Mr. Meagher, and the party finally determined to press on to this refuge. The storm continued to increase in violence, however, and the wind hurled the falling and drifting parti cles of ice against and about them until they were obliged to turn their faces from the storm and trust to the instincts of their animals to keep tbe right direction. Drifts began to meet them, and their horses could scarcely flounder' through them. It was now too late, and equally too hazardous to take the back track, and they pushed on into the bitter hurri cane in the hope of reaching Meagh ers. But now their horses gave out, and became stalled in a succession of deep drifts. It was found impossible to extricate the sleighs, and the onlv alternative was to build the best pro tection their circumstances would al low. One sleigh box was set up edgeways, turned from the wind, and another was leaned against it to serve as a cover and brace. About this in secure and flimsy shelter sacks of grain were packed, and inside the nvo men were crowded, after having first cut loose the horses. This was about four o'clock Tuesday, and of course they had no food, and but meagre supply of blankets. The snow driven across the prairies like stun nmg darts of lightning, was forced through every crevice, and packed against and above the little shelter, and in upon the men, dud with such force was it blown that it was pack ed urm as sheets of ice. Tuesday night passed, and Wednesday Mike Holden announced his intention of seeking Meagher's house. He tried to persuade the others to accompany him, but thev considered themselves safest where they were, and declined a -mo. -uise siarteti out ana succeeded in reaching the house, having both hands frozen on the way. The storm con tinned so severe that no attempt could be made to rescue the others at that time. They in the meantime were suffering nil the pangs of cold and hunger, and it is quite probable that several of them became delirious, for when found they were lying out or and near the shelter. aooui ten o ciocK rnitay morning a man, passing along tbe road with an ox team, heard shouts as of one in distrss, and upon making search dis covered the little barricade covered with packed snow, and was horrified, upon disturbing several apparent knolls in the vicinity, to find that they contained the dead bodies of men. He found the bodies of Thomas Holden,-Stephen O'Neil and John O'Neil, the first two quite dead, and the latter with life almost extinct. Upon searching under the cover he discovered two feet protruding from the snow, and breaking away the crust ho found Charles O'Neil, alive, but in a terrible condition. The bodies were at once lugged to his sled and conveyed to Meagher's and thence to Wilmar, John O'Neil dying before he reached this place. The details of the sufferin?s of Charles O'Neil are horrifying and almost incredible. It seems that he had lain down immediately npon entering the cover, and had while in this position, been fastened down by the terrible weight of the snow which drifted upon him, or rather upon the upper portion of his bodyj It was so heavy, he said, as to cause him un bearable torture. After he found he was unable to rise, and that the snow was covering his head, he feared suffocation, and to keep that mem ber free he constantly raised and low ered it, and in this manner, while he could not prevent the drift from form ing over it, he formed an air chamber which prevented suffocation. In his endeavor to free his head the poor fellow actually tore the hair almost entirety from the scalp. , Hare he lay, with his feet exposed to the- air and frozen stiff and with tba cruel frost slowly creeping up hi limbs, and un able to move scarce a muscle of his body from Tuesday night until' Fri day noon. Can a more horrible sit uation be imagined I Tbe poor fel low's right arm frozen to the elbow, the right leg to the knee and the left leg above the ankle. These members arc thus far completely dead, and he has been lying at Wilmar until yester day, when tho first train, succeeded in getting through. ; lve of the horses were frozen to death, and the others were found five miles away all right. Te Xarthweat. j.' CniOAOO, Jannary 23. The terri ble snow storm whieh commenced here early this morning continued all daj and nntil 10 o'clock to-night with unabated violence. Snow has fallen to a depth of probably ten inches on a level, but a furious northwest wind has drifted it bo it ia difficult to tell its exact depth. At this hour (1:30 p. M.) snow has about ceased, and the wind is abating in violence. No trains left the city on an v of the rail roads to-night, and hundreds of busi ness men living m the suburban villa ges are snow-bound in the city. Street railroads have run a limited number of cars all. day with four horses to each. Reports from the south and south west show that the storm has been even more severe in those directions than here, but the storm appears to have extended a comparatively short dis.ance north or northwest. No trains arrived at or left Spring field since ttia morning on any road, and snow lies fifteen inches deep. Jacksonville, Illinois, reports a similar condition of affairs. A train on the Northwestern road ia snow-bound and completely buried some miles from Jacksonville. At Peoria the storm raged with terrible fury. Trains on railroads - aro . abandoned. . Several trains on the Toledo, Peoria and Wabash road are snow-bound. For tunately, the cold has not been at all severe, the thermometer here standing at twentv-one desrrcew above zero all day. The amount of suffering from the storm is not likely to be great. Tho storm is still raging here and west to the .Mississippi rirer, but (Iocs not extend into Minnesota yet. No trains will leave here for the we.-t to-night, and trains on all roads arc considerably delayed. Peoria, III., January 2S. Snow has been falling steadily since an early hour this morning, with a driv ing northeast wind. Snow dXftcd badly to-night, and freight trains have been taken off all roads leading out of this city except the Chicago and Rock Island. The morning train on the Peoria and ' Rock Inland road, which left thw city, wa.. com pelled to return. Grand Rapids, January 23. A driving northwest enow storm began la6t night ia this city, and now seems to le growing more furious, with a prospect of continuing all night. All trains on all roads are several hours late, and on some roads abandoned for the night and canceled fir to-morrow, as the snow is drifting before a strong wind.
