I The saddest und most heart-touchin
features are the ?rief stricken faces of thos
I who are watching and waiting ior th

I lost a son, who was employed as a deel
I hand ion the Scioto. There were no teai

been married six months, poor boy! W
didn't want hiih to go on the river, but h
would go, and now he is dead." But whi
a contrast to this was the scene of two me
quarreling over a corpse at a station on th
0. A P. road on Saturday. Not for the po:
session of the lxxly, but" because they di
agreed as to the identity of the poor bo;

Saturday morning, shortly after' si

for an investigation of the hull of tl
steamer, in order to ascertain wheie 1

This having been accomplished, the Bel!
Prince took position near the Ohio sbon

refused to move from her watery gravi
At about 10 a. m. the Nail City was haile
as she was passing, and tyiug'her barges t
the chore took position on tlie starboar
of the Scioto, and after the lines had bee
arranged, uil took a good pull and pus
together, which resulted in moving tJi
wrecked steamer a few feet- About dii
ner time she had been moved about 7
feet, but the first atteinnt after diuner t

hitched, in consequence of which th
workmen were delayed some three bout
before another attempt could be mad*
Saturday night found her al>out 70 fet

the river, her bow to the shore.
Yesterday morning the river was fa*
falling and a portion of the hull was plait

lumber, nails, workmen, aiid provision;
returning about 5 p. m. with evervthin

be in Wheeling about Wednesday.
During Saturday there were but fewpres

i river, just opposite Eleventh ttm?t. Upon
^ being taken from the water the body was
found to be tliat of a young man, twenty
5* or thirty years of age, about 5 feet 8 inches D
in height, clean shaven, and wearing a
Bf worsted suit of bluish black, with wide r
diagonal binding, lie wore a broad band
gold ring on tho little finger of his lett hand.
Squire Thomas Sweeney held an inquest on
the body and a verdict was returned in accordance
with tho foregoing facta. In his
ie left vest nocket were found three one dollar B
bills, ami forty-live cents in change in his
" pant* pocket, lie also had a shoe outtoner,
tl a bullet, a watch-key and a largo' sl^evo o!

ie The body was removed to Mendel's furt

wagou, the crowd following, and gathering P1
n about the door when tho body disappeared ra
t, from view. Here it was placed in a neat

!e Saturday afternoon an Intelligencer
L'? .reporter met Supervising Inspector Fehren- ^
? batch at the McLure House, and asked ^
I. him about the accident. Jle had just come at
d from the wreck, he said, ami was awaiting ??;
? instructions from the Secretary of War n,
n before taking any steps toward a criminal o.
b prosecuuon in me matter. He said the "
e I/>cal Inspectors, Messrs. Young and WiU ^
L" son, had charge of the investigation, but rt
?0 the law made it his duty also to insti- ^
" tuto criminal proceedings if there -was jr
e reason to believe or suspect that the acci- ni
u dent was the result of culpable negligence. w
* Concerning ihe cause of the collision, and
~ where the responsibility should rest, Mr. w
!t Fehrenbatch spoke very guardedly, as was ct
proper under the circumstances. However, tc
he plainly said there must have been gross
negligence on the part of oue or both of the Cl
pilots. Hud the rules been observed the
'! accident could not have happened. Rule pi
" I states that "When steamers ore approach- u
5? ing each other, the signal for passing shall
IS be one sound of the steanvwhistle to keep 1,1
to the right, and two sounds of the steam- es
whistle to keep to the left. These signals cc
y are to be made first bv the descending ^
steamer." Rule 2 provides tliat "should .
f" steamers be likely to pass near each other, "!
and these siguals should not be made and an- St
n swereif bvtlietimesuch baits shall have ar- v.
rived at the distance of eight hundred yards M
a from each other, the engine of both boats
a shall be stopped, or should these signals be nt
y given and not properly understood, from b
l* any cause whatever, both boats shall back hi
a until their headway shall be fully checked,
e and the engines shall not again be started
r* ahead until the proper signals are made, rr
,r answered and understood.' i _
u Had Keller, when he saw that the Lomas \t.
was closer than she should have been with- ^
out giving the first signal, blew the. danger m
u R!i?nnl. the accident wnld !.<? <. i*
? averted, while had the Lomas acted in ac- ^
" cordance with her last signal, and kept the r:
0 West Virginia chapne), she would have J:
, been equally safe. J*
" Mr. Fehrenbatcli was led to vislf the ^
e t*ceneof the collision himself by the con- J*
. dieting and exaggerated"reoorts in the Cin- t'J
cinnati papers.*- He ?aid he knew that }~
a most of thest&tementsthere made were im- JjJ
e possible, and he resolved to see how things L
lay himself. He was disposed to believe
that the number of passengers on the boat Jj
had been grossly exaggerated. He thinks it ?
Impossible to carry five oraix hundred per- ,
sons on the Scioto. Illustrating tlie tendency
s of an observer to exaggerate th? number
tj of persona in any crowd, he. told an inci- il
dent of hia tnp to Mingo. When , he E
a alighted from the train he noticed that ?
;e quite a goodly number of passengers got

stenographer of the Tariff Comlission.
Ex-Postmaster General Jno. A. Cresswell,
ho was counsel for the Government be>re
the former Alabama Claims Counnisou,
has accepted the same position under
ie recent bill recognizing the commission.
The remarks of Mr. Butterworth in the
louse yesterday and the uproarous laugh;r
with which they were received constiited
the most disgraceful sceno of >the
ssion. That consisted of an indecent
Ilusion to Sunset Cox, which caused
line one to suggest that the ladies had
etter leave the gallery, but tbd ladies who
ere there needed no formal notice to?go.
he language will of course be expunged
om the Record. This performance'coupled
ith that of Whitthorne and Robeson, the
ay before suggest* that it is high time j
ongress should adjourn. 1
AVhen the Hennepin canal scheme wag J
efore the Senate yesterday Mr. Davis 1
lade several efforts to have the survey j
[ the Chesapeake and Delaware canal in- ?
ailed in the same paragraph, hut this
roved ineffectual, being ruled out of orer.
llis idea was Uiat the two canals lould
stand or fall together, but the Chair
ecided that the amendment was of such
liaracter that it could only be offered proprly
after the committee amendments had
een disposed of. Another Senator also took
le ground that both of these aud all simir
projects should be considered imleendent
of any river aud harbor bill.
The friends of the Hennepin scheme are
ot altogether pleased with JJutler's amend?ent,
-which postpones further action until
survey and report of the co3ts are made,
ut it is quite as much as they had reason
) expect this session. Senators Harrison,
herman, Sewell, Aldrich, Anthony and
lollins voted with the Democrats on this
reposition, and Davis, of Illinois, Gorrnn,
Pugh, Ransom and Walker with the
lepublicans, ngaiust it.
In the House Mr. Hoge offered an
tnendment to tlie Sundry Civil appropriLion
bill in regard to"the Harper's Ferry
ropertv, that the solicitor of the Treasury
e authorized t6 sell or lease the whole or
ny part of said property, provided that
efore the sale of the water power properit
shall be appraised at a fair cost .value *
y three sworn appraisers appointed by 1
ie_Treasury, whereupon the solicitor may \
How Uie same to bebidoft'atjsueb appraise- i
leut upon such terms and after such no- *
ce as he may direct. Mr. lliscoek ob- '
cted on the ground that this was new 4
gislation and did not-retrench expendi- j
ire.. B(rt Mr. Kerina took the, j?osi- 1
on that as the property in its present chape j
as worthless to the Government, its sale ]
ould gave the cost of taking care of it, *
icrefore the amendment did retrench 1
cpenditure, and was in order. It simply j
rovided the manner of making asaleal- \
?ady authorized under the existing law, t
ad its effect would be to relieve the Gov- *
rnment of an unnecessary expense. The j
Id act of 18(59 provides for the- resollingtir ;
asing of all the real estate and riparian ights
in tiie question. Now it was pro- 1
osed to substitute for that right to sell the !
hole or a part, as might be deemed ex- j
edient, or a lease'toi a term of years. t
The chair regarded the amendment as 1
eneral legislation on the appropriation *
ill and ruled it out. Mr. IJoge then t
loved an amendment to the paragraph j
nthorizing the Secretary of the Treasury J
) sell Euch lands as have been acquired
y devise, so that it will apply to lands
squired by purchase in order that- the

themselves in favor of seating

Washington, July 8.?Professor Baird, I
>f the Smithsonian Institution, has prepared
and just presented to Congress a I
,'ery important special report on fisheries
ind the food fishes'of the United "States,
he result of manv years' labor of the
United States Commission. The very great
mportance of the Fish Commission to all j
xirts of "the. country has long been
icknowledged. Its distribution young
ish by many millions to stock or restock
our waters ha3 borne fruit in a great
ncrease of the market supply of fish iu
ilmost even* State of the Uniou. Less is
mown of its equally important labors in
;xp!oring the nauuts, the spawning sra ous,
anu the'habits of deep sea "fish, such
is cod, mackerel, halibut, and others,' aud
hus enabling the rapid artificial increase
)f some of these fish, and pointing out to
>ur fishermen new fishing grounds.
Ill the work which Prof. Baird has now
presented to Congress, the rise, progress
md present condition of our fisheries amlescribed
with suggestions for their l'urher
improvement, the inetliods ami devi es
of these fisheries as developed from
inie to time, and the present actual staticics
of these important industries. The
second part of the report has special relaions
to the habits and characteristics
is well jus the geographical distribution
)f the food fishes of the United States, and
3 accompanied by such an amount of descriptive
matter us win enable the Various
species to be readily identified. Iu? this
>art are included also drawings of .the
species described, made either from life or
recently preserved sj>eeimejis. Prof. Baird
jays in'presenting this report:
Had the data now presented been in the
iuuub u? ujc --viucncaii voui mission ere a;
Halifax in IS77, no award of damages
*ould or could have been made, and the
mymer.t of $5,'>00,000 wou tl have been
i voided." It will be borne in mind tbat
he tWflve year treaty jK-riod expires in
1885, and that probably before that date a
second commission will be detailed to consider
this subject anew. It is, therefore,
)f the utmost importance that the
isherv tables of thin report be printed
n ample time to permit of their being
itudied and utilized in the preparation of
jriefs and other documents to be used on
he occasion of the convention in question.
The second special reason why the report
n question should be promptly printed as
leaired is that it may form a part of the
lisplay at the International Fishery Ex portion,'to
be hold in London in May, ISS3,
vhere its presentation would clearlv show
hat tie American fisheries are ol vastly
greater importance both.in extent and

from time to time since then, he
iuds that house-flies are very fn qocntly

hem generally in the proboscis of the fly,
Ithough sometimes they are found in the

St.'Lovjs, July 6.?The Laclede rolling
mills start up again next Monday. A committee
of men signed a contract agreeing
to resume work under the Cincinnati agreement
nntil a settlement would be made at
Pittsburgh. About 000 strikers will go to
work thus on Monday. All mills in the
Third district will be'in operation, except
the HelmbacherTorge, 'and it is believed
that the men employed in the rolling mill
department will soon return to work.
Chicago, July 8.?A reporter visited
Cuiutnings, where tho mills of the Calumet
Iron and Steel Company are located, in
company with Messrs. Itradlcy and Torrence,
of the comnanv. The nlao? t>re?
gentod a quiet appearance, and u stranger
j would have seen few indications of a
'strike.^ The representatives of the "Company,
in referring: to the reported concessions
made by manufacturers at Bay.-View
(and Pittsburgh, btated that these would
have little effect upon their mills. They
did not propose to "give in," and were
transforming their mills as fast as possible,
exiting goon to bo able to go to work
without the aid of the strikers. The company
is potting in eight new open-hearth
I steel furnaces, and as soon as they
I are done, work will bo commenced
The furnaces, when completed,, in about
two months, will probably do awav with
[all puddling. The ordinary pig. ?rou is
j taken as it comes from the blast furnace
and decarbonized. The result is a hoineI
generous iron, out of which a superior
j quality of nails is made The decarbonized
I iron is" run into a squeezer and then rolled
| into any sine which may be desired. These
machines will slfchtlv increase the capacity
of the works, and will, at the same time,
[decrease the number of men employed.
When running at'their full capacity" the
mills will turn out 130-tons of nails a
month. The present nail furnaces will bo
n6ed in connection with the new furnace.
Oue man with the aid of these furnaces,
will do the work of four men, and the
nails manufactured will he of a superior
quality. Samples of the nails made by.the
new process were Keen. They presented a
neatj, clean, and fine appearance, and
would net ~ break, although hammered,
twisted, and bent-double. An ordinary
nail is easily broken by a blow lro:u a
hammer. Several very interesting tests of
the new quality of iron were made in the
company aoflice. While the company expresses
its determination to hold out and
not resume work at the strikers' termp,
Uiose of the latter who were seen appeared
to have been rejuvenated by the news of
reported concessions to theif demands
elsewhere, and stated that they would
"hold the fort" until their demands were
acceded to. Many of the strikers, especially
the younger and unmarried men, have
left to find work elsewhere. The nine-foot
picket-fence which surrounds the works is
completed and forms a barrier against all
intruders. ' ' .
A great dial of excitement and indignation
baa been created by the attempt which was
made about 2 o'clockAVeduesday inorniug
to burn Edmund's grocery siore'on Huxey
avenue undOne Hundred and Eighth stieet.
It would appear that some person or
persons at present unknown took a lot of
straw and piled it in an entrace-way between
the grocery and'a boarding house.
Then a barrel of kerosene in front of the
store was knocked over and the side walk
saturated witji oil. This dotie, a match was
applied and a great blaze sprang up. The
fire was observed by a saloon keeper,
named Conley, across "ihe way, and he, by
his cries for assistance, attracted several
petsons to the scene, and the fire was put
out before it gained any great headway.
Had the fire not been discovered when'It
was," it would most likely have swept the
town. It is supposed that some of the
strikers, who'owe large bills and have been
refused further credit at the store until
thev pay up, made the attempt to fire the
PiTTsncEuii, July S?President Jones, of
the Miners' Association, seems to have resolved
himself into a committee of ways
and means, and he is now contemplating a
scheme for the replenishing of the strikers'
treasury. He proposes to issue bonds, the
form of which shall l>e of good mechanical
execution with, as he Bays, "a picture or
two to get it oir." These bonds are to be
issued in denominations of from SO 00 upwards.
they are to run one year and bear
six per cent interest. The "Miners' Association
will back these promises to pay,
and President Jones is of the opinion that
were they issued no trouble woqld he had
in disposing of them.
"Many people would be quite willing to
contribute to the strike," said Mr. Jones,
"if there was any chance of them. ever getting
their inouev back. Bonds such as I
have described would he promptly redeemed
by the association at Hie expiration
of the vear. Quite a nnmhttr of j-eople
have told us tlint ihey would take bonds of
this .kind were they issued. Some have
expressed a willingness to take $500 worth.
However, ^Ir. Jonts has no intention of j
putting an immediate i???ao of these bonds
upon the market, for as the reporter was 1
taking his departure the president added, 1
"The scheme 1 have mentioned is intended 1
as a lufei.rejicrt, hut we have other sources
of revenue which must he Jir.it exhausted."

Chicago, July 3.-?Sevenil eolmnna of
crop reports in the Tinua this morning are
summarized as follows; They show that
jorn will not bo im averam; <??nn
inyubere, an J ibnt in a ' coneiif
erablo number of districts the
iarrotrs do not now expect more than hull
?n average crop. although the' warm
weather, at tliU late day, would materially
reduce the loss. In the Southern [H.rlio'n
ol the corn and wheat Mt, the loss is less
severe thau in the .Northern portion, and
in tho latter corn is doing tolcrahlv well on
upland ground, or where the ground happens
to lie well drained, In a few localities
the reports ore favorable, but these
are .rare exception*.;
mnv rnriM <>v 'hjl . ?ot
Tlio corn crop of the United States in
1SS0 was 1,537,535,910 bushel., which wai
a slight redaction from the crop o( the
previous year. In 18S1 the crop fell to
1,104.910,0001 bushels, a reduction of onefounh,
and dispatches now indicate that
the reduction upon last year niav be fullv
as much.this year. This would cut the
com down to 900,000,000 bushels, but it
may not not be so bad as this. In ail
localities, however, corn U very backward
but in many of thorn it is progressing
I fairly after all, nnd with fine weather will
not show great reduction from lost year.
| Still, the fact remains that last year's crop
has a large reduction from that of two
years ago, and it is certain that this year's
crop will not come up to that of last year.
wiikat j'rdsl'kcth
Wheat pros|>ect9 arc much more encouraging,
though they are not nil that was
hoped for early in the season. There is a
considerable reduction in acreage pf wheat
in Iowa, Wisconsin and some parts of Minnesota,
but in the lower part of the last
named Suite, nnd in Dakota and Nebrska,
there is a huve addition to the area. The
same thing jb true of other localities in
Iowa nnd Wisconsin. "What wheat there
is, is promising well. In Wi#con*in the crop
will be larger than last year, but in Iowa it
will not be bo lanre: the excess in
one Suite being about nu oflset
to the loss in the other. Last
year tho wheat crop of Iowa was IS,.
000,000 bushels, or about half what it was
in iSSO. This year it will probably be
somewhat less thau it was last year. In
Wisconsin, the crop last year was nearly
18,000,000, a small gain over 1SS0. and
this year it may go above 20,000,000 bushels.
In Illinois the crop last year was 20,000,000
bushels, or nearly one-half the crop
of 1S8U. Thin year the iudicationa are
that the crop will exceed that of '80, aud
nrtiy amount to 30,000,000 bushels, but a
good deal depends on the luck of the farmen*
in harvesting it. The wetness of
the ground delays work and compels the
cradle to bts used instead of the machine in
many cases. Nebraska last year produced
little* less than 14,000,000 bushels of wheat,
and this year promises to go two or three
millions above that figure. The acreage is
larger, and the grain is lookiug w ell. The
finest wheat rej>orls come from Michigan.
The crop in that State two years a?o was
over .10,000,000 bushels; this vear it promises
to be nearly or quite equal to that. In
Indiana, the crop two years ago was over
38,000,000 bushels; last year about 31,500,000;
this year it will exceed the crop of
last year, and may jossibly reach figures of
two years ago. In Missouri the corn is in
fair condition, and will probably yield about
what it did last year; it may yield more.
Wheat is very promising. Crop last year
was 20,000.000 bushels, was about two*
thirds of that of two years ago, and tba
crop thus year may attaiu diineu&iou3 of
that in Minnesota. Crop of last year was
larger than that of two years auo. This
year it will not probably vary greatly from
the 35,000,000 produced' in lSSK Corn in
Illinois last year was not much more than
half that of 1879, and this year it is almost
certain to be much below" iast year. The
same is true of the Iowa corn crop, and
even in Indiana, where the l>ad weather
has had the least effect the*crop will uot be
quite so large'as last year.
In all these places, these crops will be
large than ewr before. In Kansas the
wheat harvest is nearly over, aud the crop
is estimated at 30,000,000 bushels, or more
than 50 pcf cent iu excess of the crop of
two years ayo.
