Nothing; remains but the brokeu shaft a:d fctnoke stack. iliewuUibpr of pacsenpera registered uhen he left Washington was 110. lint the received aud discharged pas sengers at various landings, of whom there is bo record. The crow consist ed of twelve. The loss is probably fifty passengers nn l two of tbe crew. Later Captain John 11. Woods, coaiaiandcr tit the Wawansett is burn ed around il e neck aud cars tightly. His account is substantially as fol ows: Tlie fire, brole out at iwenty-fiTe mitmiei' pat 12 o'clock, between Thomas' G ut atd Chattertoo. I was in tbe pilot house at the time. A fire n an tan e in aud 'old ne tho hunt was on fire bilow. I iojmadiatoly rame nut j.:d fnuuU the flaujes rcachrd qiite , " -l iL o ; t: o tiunicano cecK aiotig me walkti beam. I then eaw that It was lir.pos-sibh? to tret to the life hosts, wh eh weie on t'.e af Or quarten, to lower theia, thou;!i t! ey were full ot pasfeajrerf. I threw water en the wheel rope po as to keep her steerage all ti; ht. tud iaed buckets ot wattr rrt.m b-ljr to the hurricane deck for that puir ise, as I leeime sati-fied ti.cie was no hope of safinp the ves g'l.anJ tlie on'y chanoe to save the n:issii"eie was to keep her eoinp, she he. din 'or the beech. The boat reached tbe I each in about twelve or thirteen u.ieu'es after the alarm was riven. In li'f than fire minutes after he uLnn was civen, the fire was rear :f the pilot house. Tho engine refu sed to woik bbouthaifa n.inata be fore f ha ttruck the shore, and ths boat t uq a. length before she came to a dead Rinn. and trrouoded in less than five (Vet, of water from the bow. I ren ain e! oa the hurricane deck ttutil the Katies had burned the window curtain in djv room and the saloon windows bc'ow were shooting forth fiery darts. I tlieu catne dowu on the forwa'd deck and did what I could to eave the i las-senffers. A great many were afraid to jump overboard. I assured thetu tlipy w re safe in jumping, as the water from tbe bow was not orer their Lead, aud upon this a'Surance one or two made a l?ap and many others see ing that thewaer was shailjw, lollow ed their exauipla and were saved. It wuh with great ditncuity Icheek J theui irom juTHpin overboard ir? irge bodies and drowning each other urin ihe excit naeut, I am satis ed that ueaily all those lost were in tlie stern ot' the boat, the flames driv ing that way forcing the passengers o iutDD or be burnt. Just bel ore e.t tne uoat i neara a tauy, .'irs. .1 i . Ti l l j i l aylor, of Alexandria, crying for help Irom the rear of lh -Tessel. I saw. ler haDiog to the middle chains aod ent a boat to her r?ecue, nnd saved cr. 1 am satisfied the excitement caused undue Jo a ot me. ana mat every pateti:er was saved who jump ed overboard forward. A great many ives were lost lou the life ' boat by their ban:? overcrowded. Before the boat stopped ote life boat was crowded with colored passengers, and when she was cut loose she bulged out and hwamred the Doat. About twelve small children were aboard aud I think five or six were lost. Tbe fire caught iu the bold, but it is impossible to- tell just where. The boat was very dry, a 1hj os-1 like tinder, and the flames, when i hey struck the oiled machinery, pread like a torch. The cargo was of a miscellaneous nature, aod contained nothing inflam triable except two barrels of whiskey, which were in the forward hold, and among the last things burned. It was entirely lost. Ihe passenger list aod manifest of the vessel were lost, it ieiog impossU ble for the olerk to reach his office aud cbtaii: them. ".: At the time of the accident but few of the passengers were asleep, and none iu the staterooms; Gonie were lying down on tho solas. , The Gcorpeanua came along on her way from Baltimore and brought up a lew of the passengers. . Many went down through the country and btheis are awaitm" other boats to come home. All were taken careol. The steamer's value is estimated at 840,000. If you. have a 'good dog that kills or runs 6hrep, and dont want to j shoot him, build a pen and tad a pole across the top, and theu p ek the largest and oldest buck of the flock, put him in the pen, go your dog with a collar around his nock, and rope to draw over the middle of the pole, so that the doz wil have his fore feet swinging off the ground a few inches. Get out of the peri, and let the back give him several goor1 butts, and then turn him loose 1 his is a sure cure, l tried it ou my fathet's dogs when I was a boy; never knew them to cross a -field:wher sheep were grazing. Rural Sua. SOUTHERN PRINCIPLES." Jefferson Davis. Chubb, the Philosopher. " BY MAX ADEtlB. i ' " '; We never knew more than one man who was perfectly satisfied with the weather, at all tirees and under ali circumstances. It was Chubb. No matter what the condition of the weatler was, Chubb wag always coo tented aud happy, nd willing to affirm that tbe state of things at any given nomeot was the very best state that tould be devised. In summer, when the thermometer bolted up among the aineties, Chubb-would come to the front door with --beads of perspiration Hand'ng out all over his red face, uo. il his head looked like a rasberry, and would look at the 'ky and say, No, ble weather for the poor and for th ice companies and the washerwomen 1 I never saw such magnificeot weather (or drying thirts. They don't shake up toy euca cximate an mis id a aiy Gim me my umbreller. Herri't, while I sit out yer on the s tips aud enjoy it." In winter, when tne mercury would creep down fifteen degrees below aero, and the cold was severe enough to freeze the inside of Vesuvius solid to the centre of tbe globe, Chubb would sit out on my fence and exclaim, By gracious, Adeler, did you ever see euch weather as this 7 I like an at. mosphere that freezes up you very marrer. It helps tl.e coal traae and keeps the snakes quiet. Don t talk ol fummer-time 10 me. una cue laiu aod give it to me stiff." When there was a drought, thubo used to meet us in the street aud re mark, "No rain yet, I eee;magnifi cent, isn't it? 1 want my weather dry, I want it with dampness left out. Moisture breeds fevr aud agua, and wets your clothes. If there's any thing I despise it's to carry an umbrel- cr. No ram lor me, if you please. When it rained for a week and swamped the country, Chubb often drorped iu to see us and to observe, "I duano how you feel about this yer rain, Adeler, but U allers seems to me that the heavens never drop no bless- iugs but when we have a long wet spell. It makes the com jump aud cleans the sewers and keeps chew.usi tobacco irom geiiog too dry. 1 would'nt give a ceut to live in a cli mate where there was co rain. Put me on the Nile aud I'd die in a week. Soak me through aud through to tbe in.sida if my undershirt, aud I feel as if life was bright aud beautiful, and sorrow nothing but nonseuse." - Oa a sbowerv dav, when the sun shone brightly at one moment and at the next ti;e ram poureU iu tor. ents, Chubb used to stand at the window and exclaim, "Harriet, if you'd 've asked n e how I liked the weather, I'd 've said just as it is now. What I want "is weather that is streaked, like a piece of fat and lean bucou, a little thine and a lit la rain. Mix 'em up and give us plenty of both and I'm your man " Chubb was always happy in a thun der storm, and one day, alter the lihtn ng had kuocked dowu two ot hi trees and torn his chimney to pieces, we weni over to see mm. ne was standing by the prostrate tree", and he at once remarked, D d you ever koow of a man having suo i luck ! as that 1 I was going to chop down ! them two trees to-morrow, and as that ! chimney never draw'd will, I had con lolulcd to have it rebuilt; aud that Iigorseous rid storm has fixed things iufet the way I want em. rut sue m thunderstorm and lgt me ngutiung tilav arouud roe, aod 1 am at twrae TM rather have one storm that'd tear the bowels out of the American oonti nent than a doaen of ye ht U drib hW wntcrin'.not showers. If I can't have a rippio'; and roanu storm, don't want none." One dav Chubb ;was upon his roof fixibg a shingle wnen a toi nado struct him lilted him on and carried mm a Quarter oi a mile and aasnea mm with such terrible lorce against a lence, - ' - si . r that' his lea was broken. As they carried him home we met him, and when we a'.ked him how he leu, he onaned his eyes languidly and said Immortal Moses, wnat a storm iuai was ? When it does blow, it suits the seuior member of tlis Chubb family if it blows hard. Id give both legs if we could have a squall like that pvnrv dav. I I Then he lainted.

One Sunday, when he wa3 preaching, he nappenei to loot into the pew where the negro was, and could hardly contain nimseit as ne saw the negro, who c uld not read or"' write a word, scribbling away most industriously. After meeting he said to the negro, "Tom, what were vou doing .in the church? "Taking notes, massa; all da gem- men tafces notes. "ijring your notes here and let .me see them.'' Tom brought his notes which looed more like Chinese than English. "Why, Torn, this ia all nonsense." "I thought bo, massa, all the time you was preaching." Thirty three widows belong to one swing society in "Watertowo, N. Y., and the sound of a pair of boots going by the house where they meet is enough to stop all the machinery and needles. A woman who" pick's with, jrida'f gloves f is over beans a Danbury The Parrot. "Which was Pre sented to a Clergyman's Wife. Detroit Free Tress. Last -winter a Gratiot street sa loon keeper went o Cincinnati on a visit, and while seeing the town he came across a saloon snorting tlif wickedest old parrot which ever learned to speak the English lan guage. Gratiot street stood by and heard the bird "rip and tear" for a straigH hour, and when he came that parrot came with him. All the way np here the purchase "went for" brakemen and baggagemen, ripping ont oaths which Captain Kid couldn't have handled, and the further North he came the more wicked he grew. Reaching Detroit his cage -was hung up in the saloon, ana "jact lias been there ever since, up to Friday. It was a poor day when he didn't learn some new oath or slang express on, a d finally he became ?otha! a hardened villian could talk to him. He was sold last Friday for $20, and his owner kept him about an hour and then sent him as a present to a minister's wife, who had been at tentive to his family during 'ickness. bhe was very grateful, havm;? often thought how nice it would 1 o to have a talking parrot around "he house. "Jack" seemed put out by the change of owners, and he sat on his p rch all Friday night and re fused to say a word. Saturday morning the minister's wife starfed for Pontiac, and she carried Mack's' cage into her husband's study that neither might be lonesome. She had been gone about an hour, and the good man was scribbling away, when all once the parrot shouted: "Hearts is trump !" The good man gave a jump and looked nut of the window, thi king that a eouple of boys were playing euchre under his shade trees. He could see no one, and, supposing that he was mistaken, lie seated himself and began to write again, when the parrot shouted: "Not : ny gin, thank ye !" Horrified, the clergyman locked around and he saw "'Jack" trying t wink at him. Half doubting if it was the bird which had spoken, yet determined to find out, he inquired: "What V "Slnv up, or I'll put a head on ye!" replied 'Jack,' hanging to the cage with one claw and shaking his feathers. "Is it possible?" exclaimed the good man, drawing nearer to the cairo. "Cbampano Chaflio ws his r.amo, Champagne Charlie was his name," sansr "Jact, swinging furiously on the stick. "Vile bird, you sir 11 go out of here ! cried the minister m an ex cited voice: "I would as soon harbor a highwayman." "house mit him! Raid "Jack, and then h9 chuckled and cackled as if he was laughing he irtilv. "It is a sin and a shame that. men have taught an innocent bird to use ! such lenguae." continued the good man, as he picked up the cage. Hit hipi with a beer tumbl r, re plied the ptrot. trving to ftisten his eiaw into the ministerial leg. 'Little did my wife dream what a viper she was bringing into the honsr-.' roused the man. 'I shell hire some boy to carry vou ay.' 'Fend (ot the Black Maria,' replied the bird, and while he was being car- red out he oontinued, 'Who stela the wheelbarrow.' The minister reached s'oop and cal led to a boy who was playing mumble- tv rg on the cncs. Here, bub, be said, as the boy cam up ; 'taxe this rnra on somewnere nnd give him away, and I'll give you two shillings.' Oh, dry un now!" growled "Jack,' seeming to know that hs was to change places again. Give him to any one who will wke jim,' continued the tnirister. 'Chuck him under the table!' called the bird, as he went through the gate. and when he was nearly a block away he roull he heard singing : "We won't pro hone nntil morning Till daylight does appear." Brigha n Young is reported to have expressed himself as follows in one of his recent "sermons" i:i Salt Lake City: "I wish my women founder, stand that what I am going to say is for them as well as others, and I want those who ire here to tell thoir sisters yes, all the women in the coianuinhy I am going to give you from this time to the 6'h October next for refiootiou, that you mav determine whether you wish to stay with your husbands r not, and then lam goiagto set every wo man at, liberty, aud say to the , "now, go your way. And my wives have got to do one of two things, cither round up their shoulder to endure the Hffi cations of this world, and live their religion that is, polygamy or they must leave; for I will not have them about me. I will go into heaven alone rather than to hve sor&tching an fighting about me. I will set all at liberty. What, first wile, too? Yes, liberate you all. I want to go some, where or do something to get rid of tbe whiacrs. 1 do not want them to receive part of the truth and spuru the rest outof doors. Let every man thus treat his wives; keeping rameut eno igh to cover his body, and eay to your wives, take all that I have and hi it set at liberty but ii'yo sUy witU m", yoa shall jeoiiiply wuh the law of God ia every respect, and that, too, without any murmuring or whining. You must fulfill tbe lawof iod in every respect, and round up your. Shoulder to wa k up to the niark without gruufcinj." 38- neet lulling Hovv it Is Done Among the Indians.!

From 150 to 200 head are issued at a time, and 'he Indians drive vV. but twenty or thirty into an inelosur? for the 'pur pose. A ciuple of hundred of the copper colored devils then get around the pen, and with rifles and revolvers commence afusila le into the tbe herd, taking no aim, but just banging awaj pronmcon.-dy, sweating to desire mi.re r main an 1 torture tho poor bru!e than to kill theui. Tho revolvers haven't snffie'ent force to put one of them to death, so they are tho favor ite arm. The wocmde.l bovines soon sot up a b'ell)wing which ought to excite pitj in nny hairt, hut these red-skins listen to it with a delight that could only 1 e equaled if tlie agonizing cries were thoe of pale.fuce viciitus. In the herd uiay be seen animals with two or three of their legs broken, hut trying to rear and plunge on thoss uninjured; some with their horns split, by a bul let, and otliers scared and blocding in various parts of the body. After the massacre is finished the Indians jump into the coral, and there is thea a strife for securing the tongues and in tetines of the animal-, which taken raw are veryclioi e morsels to the red nuns pala'e. When there is nothing left hut. the lifeless, tongueh'ss, evis corate.l carcesses of Ihe cattle inside the ioelo'ure, attention is then paid to to those reserved to furnish the desert of this carnival of barbaric cruelty. The iwenty or thirty steers are ftam peded across (he prairie, and they are the; pu'-ucd by t: e Indians on horse b;ck with lances and revolvera a la b iff ilo hunt, their tormentors utter ing those hideous noibes for the pro. ducrion of which tlie vocal accoutre ment of the full 'rown ration's wa d is the only adequate arrangement yet discovered. l!y ui-ans of spheres end pistols the miserable brutes (we refer to the cat tie) have their bodies so laccratod t! at they are soon exhausted by the loss of 'lood and the fia-itic pacs at which ihey have fried tr elude their murder ers When one falls the Indians then try by goading to urge it to another race; but wheu they fail in this they stand ove: the fallen beast and by ali the devilish i ricks they ever le.trr.eu tcrment it until death comes as a re lie?'. Tr.eu tvll !hr interest in tho ani mal is at end, except who shall sca.p it of its tongue acd cutrniis. The s tuaws are thua turned out to cut up the carcasses and Lie' them in to camp, not a morsel of which is allow to remain.

On tho Oth instunt tho London liner Hitleman arrived here, bring incr n. rec rd of a tale of horror a lead captain and a murderer in ir ns. Hundreds Hocked t ext day to tlie Morgue, wlfere the body, taken from a cask f spirits, awaited the assembling of the Coroner's Court, before which tho following EVIDENCE 1 was given : About four o'clock on tho morn ing of March 1G the Rifleman, being then off Brazil, in latitude 34 W., the man at tlie wheel inform d tho ehiof officer that after the crew took tlic-ir srvos on the previous nitrht they became ill, and they had been xusonod. Tho mate was thinking over tho matter when tho steward, a Dutchman, named Julius "Willicm Krauss, canio on the poop saying. "The captain wants to two yon, shv" On coinir below together ha added. I think it is about the grog." Tho mate knocked at tho cabin door, but receiving no answer, was about to inquire what iic was wanted lor, when lie was struck a tcrriho blow he forehead, laying it have to tho bone. staggering intn tho statoroom, ho followed by tho stew ard, who struck him a second blow ere ho closed with tho murderer, and a sTr.nciLE roil life took jilace. Tho murderer was much the more powerful man, efill his would-bo victim held him firmly " round the body, pinioning his arms. while he called for he p. Ivrauss repeatedly tried to striko ano her blow, when fortunately tho ship took a lurch and precipitated both again: t the cantain's bunk, tho edge of which came in contact with Krauss' back aud partially d:sablcd him. Just then tho boatswain rushed in. and tho ma'c, weakened by lot's of blood, told tho boatswain to h Id his assailant's hands firmly. IIo d d so f .r n rainuto, and tueii, forget fully released one of them, enabled vrauss to draw a revolver and hro it point blank in his fuco, the bullet entering below the jaw and coming out at tho back of his neck, closo to the &pino. This nnorrr-D the coats.. ain, and another shot was fired ut the mate, the ball gazing las cheek nnd edging in tho side of tho cabin. Ero he could repeat it Krauss was' varpowered and Eecurcd.

In the stewards room wero found several written statements complaining that tho captain had found fault with him for being duty, nnd ono ol them closed with tho querry, cannot a steward have revenge in his own manner 1 No doubt he lias dono so, and justice has followed so swiftly that ho now lies under sentence of death.
