I iIimi in m f..w ilav. or weeks at ni'tst. the j One of the interesting and amus- inS phases ol politics m tnis Mate, is the battle raging just now between the Democrats and the leaders of the Indeiendenb;, who so lately were their allies. Apparently forgetting that they carried the State last year by dividing the Republican forces, the Democrats set up an intensely partisan, bulldozing government, and cracked the party whip so vig orously about the ears of their Inde pendent allies, that Senator Stewart and his colleagues could no longer stand it. During the regular session of the legislature the' could have had a Congressional apportionment on the basis of a bill offered by Stewart, but they would have none of it, and bo forced an adjournment and the calling of an extra session. Xow, having discovered that Stewart and the other Independent Senators cannot be further bulldozed, and that in their creed, they have played the fool, they have turned upon their late allies, and are denouncing them with bitter fury. Stewart Lee and their fellow Independents, have been late in realizing the fact that the Democracy were never know n to do anything except upon a strictly partisan basis, but having at last discovered that power, not justice, is what their late allies de mand, they have taken up the posi tion which they should have assum ed at first, and refuse to be further dictated to by the Governor and his personal advisers. Their present position is right and manly, the Democrats, in their hearts, realize that fact, and in their rage at having overreached themselves, and driven away their allies, tbey are making themselves ridiculous, by exhibiting their malice and disappointment The Democrats in the legislature are still play ins at their game of "Ireeze out They occupy precisely the same position they did during the regular session; they know ab solutely, that the Republicans can not le bulldozed into yielding to their demands, and yet they persist ently refuse to adjourn. The simple truth is, they are in a hole, from which they are vaiuly trying to wrig gle out. It was perfectly apparent after struggling tbreugh a protracted session cf one hundred and ftv i days, that au agreement on an ap- portionment of the State could not be arrived at, but inflated with end denly acquired power, our youthful Governor and his advisers, came to the fool conclusion that they could coerce the Legislature into comply ing with their demand for more members of Congress and of the Sen ate than they were entitled to, or could keep if they had them, and accordingly the present extra session was called. A large element in this scheme ot iorce, was the idea thai to fleeing to those they know not of, the Independent Senators refuse 1 to be lashed into measures, and thus j the hope of Buccess founded ujwn i expacted assistance from them, has vanished. Every day of this extra sessioaii coating the tax payers over j three thousand dollars, the total ao far, amounts to many thousands, and hoping against hope, with a bull dog persistency that will die before it lets go its grip, the Democrats re fuse to adjourn.' They 11 be d d if they do and be d d if they don't They are in a hole of their own dig ging, and they can't wriggle out and so the extra session drags aimlessly and hopelessly along at a fearful cost to the tax payer. 'Reckoning with out the hocV'i proverbially a very foolish experiment, and now the Democrat know it from bitter ex perience.

But the party continued to do busi ness at the same old stand. The demand is to be made again next year. The party will continue not to go, by a large majority. But, as usual, something will go. As usual it will be the Democratic party. -V. V. Tribune. It is stated that Samuel J. Tilden has given oO,000 toward the Dem ocratic campaign fund for the Ohio election. This is the gentleman who, through the columns of the New York i'un, declines to be a candidate for the Presidency. It is probable that he makes this contribution, if he makes it purely for patriotic rea sons, and because he has more mon ey than he knows what to do with. Mr. Tildea is a bachelor, without any dependent heirs. His family are all well off, and he has a fortune of many millions. If he proposes to distribute his money among po litical committees, as other philan thropists have distributed theirs through boards of charity, friends will rapidly increase. Inter Ocean. XOTli FROM AX ORGAN. The New York World seems to regard it necessary to assure honest and honorable Republicans that they ure not alluded to when the rascals of politics cry out, "Out with the rascals !" it may be necessary to assure honest and Honorable Demo crats that they are not the persona who are intended to supply the va cancies to be made by putting the rascals out It is then agreed that no honest men are at all interested in putting the rascals out or in fill ing the vacancies with seven fold worse rascals. So honest men being excepted out of this wordy war on suppositious rasc;ds, they can look on and listen and be amused. The Republican party has very little to apologize for since it obtain ed control. It has much to regret, no doubt, and it is assuring to knew that it has moral character and con science enough to feel genuine regret for many things strictly incidental to political domination. But the party has nothing to apologize for. No party ever wielded so much pow er in this or any other country dur ing so lon a term with leess to re gret. It has not always selected honest men for places of responsibili ty. But what party ever did? It has fallen into some errors in admin istration as well as in legislation. But what party with equal opportu nity has ever avoided like errors ? The Republicans have almost abso lutely shaped the fortunes of the Republic for twenty odd years. Has the party shaped those fortunes well or ill? How is it? How are men to arrive at judgment in pass ing upon the work of a political par ty? They must go back to the be ginning of the rule of that party, and having ascertained the condition of the country at that time, contrast it with the condition of thing?, in a national sense, at the present time. In doing that what do we find? We find at the beginning of Republican supremacy sevon States as complete ly out of the L'nion as they could by their own acts take themselves out We find the country in the throes of civil war, a bankrupt treasury, a large floating debt, and a nation absolutely without credit among its own people. And this, remember, was tne closing out of more than a quarter of a century of Democratic rule. We tind, also, an Administra tion about to retire from power mem lers of which were clearly guilty of wholesale waste of government prop erty and acce.-sory to the robbery of trust fund.. Thus the Democratic party round ed up its long period of control with rascality on a gigantic scale. When the people turned it out, it turned out the most inveterate lot of rascals this county ever tolerated. From the ravelled edges of this party comes the cry, "Turn the rxcals out!" Why not? Can we look for anything else from a rascally party? Who has ever found a genuine rascal who did not think everybody else a rascal? We are quite ready to admit that no party monopolizes the rascals. But the difference between the Democrat ic and the Republican policy of ad ministering government is " that in the case of the former the rascals con trol tne administration while in the lattf r case the administration con trols the rascals. The difference is considerable. The Democrats sel dom tried to punish its rascals. The Republicans have punished a good many Republican rascals, and would have punished many more but for the fact that the Democrats themsel ves have obstructed the way in order to save themselves. For it is no secret that there has been a Demo cratic rascal yoked to every Repub lican rascal for the last twenty odd years. The friends of the rascal Democrats have rallied to their de fence invariably, and this has aided Republican rascals to escape just punishment in many cases. JNorfA American. Vict ima of a Tornado. Detroit, Michigan, July 2T. Re ports somewhat of an indefinite char acter have been reeived that the lit tle village of Onondaga, in the south eastern part of Ingham county, was almost entirely swept away by a tornado, accompanied . by a very heavy rain-storm, which visited that section on Monday. A woman named Hurtley is reported to have been killed. The buildings belong ing to John Rush, two miles west of Leslie, were demolished. A vast amount of timber is reported to have been thrown down. Fences were leveled, and roads and fields were strewn with limbs of trees which were carried a long distance. The house of Mrs. Elizabeth Barlow was picked up by the wind and torn to faeces, and Mrs. Barlow was killed, tue Perrine's house, on the line be tween Eaton and Ingham counties, was also wrecked.

Captain Webb, the noted English swimmer; met an untimely death this afternoon in at tempting to swim the Niagara whirl pool rapids. He was to go over the course which the Maid of. the Mist ran many years ago in 'escaping an attachment No craft but this ever survived the perils of that terrible channel and no human being 'save her crew ever passed alive through the rapids., . Captain , Webb and iaa business manager, Fred Kyle, of Boston, left Bullalo this morning and spent most of the day at the hotels and about the falls, taking but a cursery feurvey of the rapids. At one o'clock the press representatives and others immediately interested were informed that Captain Webb would enter the rive at four o'clock. The number of spectators was email, there being not more than five hun dred scattered along the banks to witness the hazardous undertaking. The failure of the railroad companies and hotels to co-operate with him rendering the enterprise a failure financially. It was precisely two minutes past four when Webb sprang from his boat, about a third of a mile above the railroad suspension bridge and close to the old Maid of the Mist landing. He was entirely nude, save a band worn around his body for the protection of his stom ach. THE STRUGGLE IN THE RAPIDS. The daring and accomplished swimmer gave himself no artificial assistance whatever. Ills leap from the boat was greeted with prolonged cheering. He struck boldly into the middle of the river and buoyed him self gracefully upon the surface as the mighty current carried him to ward the deadly whirlpool, nearly a mile and a half below. It was a thrilling spectacle and the brilliant performance lasted thirteen minutes, by which time Captain Webb had reached the whirlpool. His object was to hug the American side of the river, although many contend that hi3 chances would have been better on the Canadian side. By the pecu liar formation of the channel at this point, with its curves and ridges of rock, the water is dashed upward a distance of forty or fifty feet, resemb ling the billows of an angry sea. Then it whirls and seethes as if lash ed Dy a thousand demons. In the frightful vortex thus formed a vessel, a stick of timber, an animal or a human being is carried under and in some cases will remain for days before escaping into the river below. THE LA8T SKEN OF THE SWIMMER. As the intrepid navigator came to the whirlpool he was seen to throw up one of his arms. Whether this was intended as a signal of distres?, fear, or danger, or merely to exhibit his strength to those on land can on ly be connected. Nothing was seen of him afterward. The search was kept up until dark, when his man ager announced that there was no hope. Captain Webb was forty years of age and was born in Shropshire, England. He leaves a wife and two children in his native place. He was a man of medium stature and nicely proportioned. He was very intelligent-looking. His national exploits began in 1S73. During that year he was serving before the most on the Cunard steamship Russia. One day a shipmate fell overboard from the rigging. There was a gale blowing and the Russia was booming along at fifteen knots an hour. Webb sprang into the water in an instant and made a gallant effort to save the drowning sailor. He could not reach him however. Webb's strug gle in the water lasted upwards of half an hour. He was given a purse of $-500 on the spot and after wards a medal. In 187o he accom plished the remarkable feat of swim ming the English Channel from Do ver to Calais. Xpert nantlara. New Bloom field, July 26. By the use of hammers, braces and chis els, stolen from the smith shop of Henry Sheafer, robbers last night forced an entrance into the extensive general store of Frank Mortimer, of this place. After abandoning a side window, which refused to yield, the robbers concentrated their efforts on the main entrance door, which was jimmied open. Having effected an entrance the burglars devoted their attention to the safe. The combina tion readily yielded to the manipu lation of experts or some one famil iar therewith, and the safe was rob bed of money, mostly trade dollars, to the yalue of nearly four hundred dollars. One package of fifty trade dollars was overlooked. Ninety dol lars of the stolen money was the property of the telegraph company, of which Mr. Mortimer is the mana ger. Checks to the value of between thirty and lorty dollars were also taken. Pyment on them has been stopped. No merchandise was dis turbed. There is no clue to the rob bers. 1-olk.' Heavy Sentence.

I A Great Gna Finished. Reading, July 24. What is de siinied to be the trreatest improve- ' inent in modern warfare, "The Ly man Haskell multicharge gun, was finished at the Scott Foundry to-day. It has been undergoing construction for over two years and to-morrow will be shipped to Sandy Hook, where it will be tested Jn the prea encs of leading officers of the army and navy of the United States and foreign countries.. The last Congress made 'a special 'appropriation for; this purpose. Since the invention of Mhe rnrmon, four hundred years ago, they have all been constructed . on tha Bamo principle of placing the powder in the breech, and the Ly man Haskell is the first deviation. The gun contains four "pockets" un derneath. each of which holds 2S pounds of powder, while the breech itself holds but eighteen pounds. As the projectile starts from the breech the force of this entire 130 pounds of powder is concentrated on it, one pocket after another rapidly discharging its content". The gun is 25 feet long and weighs 2o tons. It is rendered doubly strong by a steel lining and it is thought can hurl a projectile through a solid piece of iron two feet thick. It will shoot, so it is claimed, from twelve to fifteen miles, and it is intended for both harbor and naval defense. The present gun was manufactured at a cost of over $50,IXJU, and Mr. Haskell has yersonally supervised its construction. The projectiles with which it is loaded weigh from one hundred to one hundred and fifty pounds. A company with a large capital has been organized for the manufacture of the gun. Ex- Governor Cornell and ex-Senator Piatt are some of the interested par ties. Death From Cholera. Alexandria, July 24. A Euro pean has died here from Cholera. It is reported that cholera has appear ed among the British soldiers at the citadel in Cairo. One soldier has died in the Military Hospital at Abassiee.

A calamity that has been threatening at Grand rapids for the past two or three days took place this morning. An im mense jam of logs-extending along the Grand River for miles, has been lodged against th Detroit and Grand Haven Railroad bridge near this city. It was hoped the bridge might resist the tremendous pressure, but it suc cumbed this forenoon and went down with a crash. The bridge of the Grand Rapids and Indiana and the Chicago and West Michigan Railroads followed suit Millions of feet of logs have gone down the river with the flow, and are most cer tain to keep on, sweeping everything before them, and go into Lake Mich igan. If this proves true a large ad ditional number of logs will be car ried out at Grand Haven and all the bridges there will be destroyed. The losses, it is feared, will reach many hundred thousands of dollars. The calamity is unprecedented. Beheaded on the Rail. Wilmington, Del., July 20. John M. Bennett, a bricklayer, residing in Trenton, was run over and killed by a train on the Philadelphia, Wilming ton and Baltimore Railroad early this morning. He was discovered by three men walking on the track lying asleep on the ties, with his neck across the rail. A train was ap proaching rapidly from an opposite direction and before the men could render him aid the entire train passed over him before it could be stopped. The head was completely severed from the trunk and his body consid erably in -inled. A man answering his description threw himself in front of an approaching train on Tuesday, but was rescued by an olli ccr before his suicidal purpose hud been accomplished.

A special dispatch from Miles City, Montana, says : A party of masked men proceeded to the county jail last night overpowering the jailor and seized a prisoner named Rigney. The mob took him about a mile and hanged him to the projecting end of a railroad tie over " a culvert Rigney had been lodged in jail the day before for disorderly conduct. and was believed to be a hard citi zen, being accused ol robbery and other crimes. He was a bartender in the saloon of the Cosmopolitan theatre. Two hours after the hang ing the theatre was burned, together with six other buildings, entailing a loss of $50,000.
