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.

resolution abolishing the franking

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
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

It is rumored through tue papers

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.

known as the former Senator from

late war, as his private Secretary.

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

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.
Washington, Jan 23, 1873.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.

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.

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
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
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

Railroad at that point

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 '

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.
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
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 namo of tbe steamer which ran j
into the ship has not yet been ascer
tained, hut she is believed to have!
been a Spanish vessel, bound from
Antwerp. The Board of Trade of j
this city has offered a reward of one
hundred pounds for her discovery.
London, J anuary 23. N oon. Tbe
steamer which ran down and sunk
the emigrant ahip Northfleet off Dun-
giness, is believed to be a Portuguese
craft Her name cannot be ascertain
ed until she reaches port
., London, January 23. Twelve oth
er persons have been saved from the
emigrant ship Northfleet, making ninety-seven
known to have been saved.
The Lloyds have telegraphed their
agents at all southern stations to stop,
if possible, the steamer which, run
the Northfleet down.
BallraM Accident.
Chicago, January 25. 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.

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. The blockade threatens
to be the wort had this winter.
