of (he great voicanic eruption in Java,j
which have just reached 1 on J jn from
llatavia show the disaster to h ve been
e?en more widespread and more disaatrouB
than reported in yesterday'a advices. At
noon Sunday the eruption and shock were
supposed to have reached their greatest
hight, but late in the afternoon and even
ing the violence of the disturbance sud
denly increased, and the island seemed to
be about to be completely buried in a maae
of fire and sulphur ashes. At the same
time the enormous waves began to dash
with greater force on the shores, coming in
aome places far up into the interior, and
great chasms opened in the earth and
threatened to engulf a largo proportion of
the island's people andTiuiidlngs. At mid
night the most frightful scene of the whole
disturbance took place.
Suddenly an enormous luminous cloud
similar to that which was seen over the
Gunung Gunter, but much greater in "ex
tent, formed over the* Kadang range of
mountains which skirt the Southweet coast
o! the island. This cloud gradually in
creased in size until it formed a canopy of,
lurid, red and whitish grey overs wide ex
tent of territory. During this time the
eruption increased aod streams of lava
poured incessantly down the sides of the
mountains into the valley, sweeping every
thing before them. Here and there a
stream of lava would enter an arm of the
SM or come in contact with the water of
the river.
SINGULAR KKKAKS OK T1IK SHltTION.
One of the most Bingular freaks of the
eruption was the carrying In the midst of
the molten lava of a bed of aolid Ice of
enormous size, which had been emitted
from one of the craters, carried along by
the current and landed on the extremity of
Point St. Nlcbolaa on the northwest corner
of the island. This bed of ice was sur
rounded by a thick envelope of eund and
acoritc which are tuch non-conductors of
heat, that a red-hot stream of lava running
over it will not melt snow. It is suppose'
that this ice had formed the crust of some
vast subterranean lake.
About 2 o'clock Monday morning the
great cloud suddenly broke into small sec
tions and quickly vanished. Attheeame
time the most frightful rumblings were
heard, and the columns of fire and emoke
on the Bouthwest corner of the island ceased
to ascend, while the craters in the other
JMrts of Java seemed to open their fiery
throats still wider to let out the greatest
quantities ol lava, rocka, pumice and ashrB
yet vomited out. The hit sing of the sea
became so loud as to be almost deafening,
and the waves rushed up on the shore to
an unprecedented hight.
I-AM) DI8APPXARS.
When daylight came it was seen that an
enormous tract of land had disappeared,
extending from Point Capucin on- the :
south to Negery Pafsserang on the north
and west to a low point covering an extent
of territory about 160 miles square. In
thia were altuated the villages of Negery
and Negery Babawang. Of the people in
habiting these places, and the natives scat
tered through the foreatsand on the plaint.
none escaped a frightful death. This sec
tion of the island was not so densely popu
lated as the other portions, and the loss of
life wa? comparatively small, although
it must have aggregated fully 15,
000 souls. The entire Kardang range

far a moment by the receding of a great
wave, and occasionally a puff of brown
lsh gray smoke or a slight shower of recks
ahewed that the volcanoes still continued
in active Bubaqueous eruption. The de

Hleammip Britannia In n Nlurm.
Niw Yokk, August 30.?Captain Zaaf
fert, of the steamer Britannia, from Mar
seilles, whi<?h arrived this morning in e
crippled condition from the effects of a
storm which she encountered on the 2<"th
in latitude 38? 15', longitude 03? lO', stated
that with many years .of seafaring ex
perience he had never been in such a terri
ble conflict of the elements. "On the even?
ing of tbe 24th." he said, "the atmosphere
was calm; but verv heavy, and the barome
ter was verv high, reaching 30 2: during
the night it lowered, but not enough to in
dicate danger. The wind, toward morning
changed southwest to south. I ordered
the sails set, not apprehending any (laa
ger." "At 6 o'clock on the morning of
Ue 20tb," continued the Captain,
"the skies commenced to change and
the barometer to lower. At 7 o'clock the
wind came in sudden gusts, and the ba
rometer fell to 29 4. At half-past 7 a guet
struck us with the force of pent-up steam
escaping from a burst boiler, and carried
all the sail away, tearing it in shreds, while
suspended in the air. The sea began to
run heavy, and from every point of the
compass a multitude of clouds were driven
toward us with lightning rapidity. Dark
ness fell upon us, and we could not see ten
feet ahead. As if a thousand powder maga
zines had been tired simultaneously, flashes
3f light burst every few feet apart from tbe
black pall over us, and the deafening crash
that followed almost completely shunned
Bverybody on board. The sea seemed
irawn towards the clouds, and waves dash*
3d over the ship, carrying away all the
boats and rails. A vortex opened right
ihead of us, into which we swept, and the
straining steamer was whirled around like
in egg shell.
"The flood-gates of the heavens opened, j
find the rain, driven with such power that1
it struck us almost with the force of hail,
rhe strangest phenomenon of the storm,
however, was the erratic course of the
lightning, which appeared to leap from the
water and lose itself in the clouds. This,
though, may have been an optical illu
sion. We tried to stand up before the
wind, but as it came from every quarter,
we had to give it up and drift. The cy
clone vanished as it had come, the clouds
dispersing and blowing away to every
point of the compass. As they passed
away it gradually became lighter, and the
sea began to run It as heavy. Of course
there was great consternation on board,
but when we found that the Bteamer had
taken no water, our feara were allayed."

Louisville, Ky., August 29.?To fully
' describe the Louisville Exposition would
be impossible. It would take a month
to comprehend the exhibit, and then
your mind might be in a maze. A
curious thing about Louisville is the fact
that there is not one single bona fide lie
publican paper published here. The Com?
mercial, which was at one time a devoted
and faithful advocate of the Republican
cause, has recently shed its politics end
now announces itself as an iBdependent
journal. This seems strange, but the ex*
planation is a lack of support. A city with
150,000 inhabitants and 10,000 Re
publican voters certainly ought to
be able to maintain one Republican
paper, but it won't. Since the Commercial
lias changed its colors ithasgained in busi
ness and circulation. Another striking fact
is that while the Republicans make no
gains in rural Kentucky, their vote is
steadily increasing in Louisville notwith
standing their want of a reliable party
organ. Louisville is growing faster than
at any ether period of its history, and
should it maintain its.present rate oi
growth, twenty years will carry it far ahead
of Cincinnati in all that goes to make up a
great city.
MVPtHKATt'ft JKALOITSV.
Indeed, the aforetime Queen City, the
mis-called Paris of America, is already de
veloping a spirit of jealousy, aod the ii'n
quim has taken to abusing the Exposition
in lauguage more vituperative than the fish
wives of Billingsgate, and.more neat and or
nate in its classic finish than John McLean
can apply to Murat Halstead. Cincinnati
has her musical festivals, her fairs, her ex
positions and her Probasco Fountains, but
fihehas never bad anything so eminently
original and characteristic as Henry Wat
teuon as an editor, or so thoroughly enter
prising and altogether so attractive as
tne Louisville Exposition of 1883.
No wonder that McLsan is mad
and suspends awhile his war on
Halstead and Judge Hoadly to pour out
the vials of his wrath upon Louisville's
great fair. Alt one needs to be convinced
that this city is no longer a rural adven
ture, is to venture upon a walk along the
streets and attempt to count the number of
buildings in process of ercction. He would
liod it as difficult a task as the ludian who
some hundred years ago took his stand on
London bridge and began cutting a notch
in a Btiek to represent each pawer-by.
The Exposition has now been o^n about
four weeks and is visited daily by steadily
increasing crowds of visitor*.
MO WH KBLI.N8 KXIl 1 It ITS.
If Wheeling is represented among the
exhibits the writer has tailed to make the
discoveiy, and to this date has met but one
Wheeling man here, and lie seemed lost in
the solitude of his own reflection?, as
tonished, in fact, that he should have wan
dered so far fiom the smoke and clouds of
our far-famed city of nails, glass and beer.
It is undei stand at present that cities likt
Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Cincinnati are
in search of Southern trade and no very
philosophic observer would be disposed to
think that a share, an inliaiteaimal slice of
that bonanza might greatly benelit and
largely pro tit our own town. If such be
the case, do you not think that
it would be in harmony with
the eternal iltness of things that tne Man
cheater of West Virginia snonld be repre
sented here with specimens of her handi
work. It will be many yeare before she
will have such another opportunity to
Bhow the whole Southern world what she
can do in many lines of manufactures
which are generally supposed to be a Pitts
burgh monopoly. There is no reason in
the world wny we should not drive the
Pennsylvania town entirely oat of the
South. We nave all her advantages, aud
then we have a shorter distance to travel.
NOVELTIES OF TIIKXXPOSITION.
In this exhibition there are many things
to be seen that were not in use, or at any
rate, were hut little known at the time of
theCentenuialat Philadelphia. An electric
train is among the wonders, and the in*
ventors claim that the day is not far dis
tant that will see it take the place of the
steam engine. Should this be so, you may
iigagipe the coal and fuel that would be
saved and the vast reduction in the expenee
of travel that would ensue. Five kind9
ot ekctric lights are on exhibition.
An expert will be more able to tell you
which is the moat desirable. All that I
can eay i# thai they are all monuments of
the skill and peraeyerenoe qf the Amer
ican inventors. As 1111 evidence of the en
terprise of the man8f?ers you will not be
surprised when you hear that the Seventh
Regiment Jland of New York City has
ha? been brought here at an expense of
$30 COO. It furnishes a concert every night
and its music is such that the fifty cents
admiesion paid by the visitor is gotten back
tenfold from this alone.
FRUIT niSI'LAY.
The fruit display is wonderful. Water
melons have come to the front with a
vengeance. I saw one in the Hall last

you may imagine thqt here was a source of

may desire information I will eay that the
oyefage Louisville lady slightly exceeds
this weight, and that, as .to sweetness, amia
bility and general attraction*, tuere a: a

In the art gallery there aro perhaps three
millions of dollars worth of paintings and
they are carrying one million dollars of in*
surance upon them. A picture called "The
Carpenter at Work," by Frederick Ulrich,
a son of Dr. Ulrich, of Wheeling, has at*
tracted a great deal of attention and been
the recipient of a great many handsome
and complimentary criticisms. Gen. Grant

makes a quiet journey to Philadelphia on
political business related not remotely to
the Speakership canvass. It is even re
ported that on one occasion he has traveled
as far as Graystone. Several weeks ago
Representative Converse, of Ohio, came to
Washington "on Department business"
and did not return home until after a con
ference with Randall in Philadelphia. A
day or two ago Converse turned up
here again, this time in search
of "winter quarters," and again he went to
Philadelphia, it is nndei stood, for a further
conference with Randall. Converse is a
Btroug Randall man, but he is not without
hope that in case of a long and bitter strug
gle in the Democratic caucus the name of
Converse may ultimately lead all the rest.
Some timeago the friends of S S.Cox asserted
that he would get the Ohio votes, "with
two or three exceptions," but they now re-,
gretfully concede that he will rcceive only
two or three votes from that State; Car
lisle's friends claim "several," and it
seems to be generally expected that Ran
dall will have the rest. Several prominent
Democrats have expressed the opinion re
cently that Rindall is the Tildencandidate
itud if so, he can count upon whatever help
Judne lioadly can give him in Ohio.
The report of a Carlisle-Cox alliance
igaiust Randall is probably well-founded.
It is not forgotten in Washington, how
aver, that another Kentucky candidate for
Speaker ouceformed an alliance with S. S.
Dux to defeat Randall. That was four years
>g), and when the feeling against Randall
in his own party was so bitter on account
>f his views op the tariff question that a
number of fiery Ssuthernerd and Western
Democrats threatened to bolt if he secured
he nomination. Well, Randall secured 75
rotes in the caucus, Blackburn got 58, and
2ox,wbo had made big "claims" before the
caucus assembled, received only 4, and his
disappointed Kentucky ally not only styled
lim "A ?? masquerading Democrat,"
rat appeared to believe that he had been
lecretly in favor of Rindall all the while.
But then Cox whs not backed by "the
jolid New York delegation" at that time.

ips Roeebrook tragedy of last Sunday con
jnues to be the pbief topic of conversation.
The report that they had met per agree
ment, chcsen their weapons and seconds,
ind fought a duel to the death is erroneous.
Additional and full particulars concerning
he bloody encounter, as learned by a
jorrcspondent to-day, are these: Louis
Phillips and Jacob Rosebrook, both young
lien of good families, residents of
Bowling Green Township, this county be
:ame enamored of a Mies Evans, living
ustover the line in Loudon Township.
For some months past both men had vis
irously pressed their claims for the young
woman's hand, and it was noticeably plain
bjit neither of the suitors entertained any
treat amount of affection for the other,
finally their jealousy became unbearable,
iqdevery time they met the one's hatred
oward the other would in some manner
iliow itself. The girl could not freely de
ride which she preierred. The entire
leighborhood was aware of the rivalry, and
he outcome was looked forward to with
interest. The last scheme,and the one which
proved to be the signal for the fatal en
:ounter, was that devised by Rosebrook.
A missive purporting to have come from
Phillips was received by Mirs Evans, in
phich her character was assailed. Mies
Avails was hiuhly indignant and brought
Phillips to task. He stoutly protested his
nnocenceand bitterly denounced the au
;hor, who be openly asserted was none
jthtr than Rosebrook. Matters went on
intil last Sunday evening, when the two
rivals met by chance at a church and the
lorged letter waa alluded to by phillipx
Hot words passed, and finally the two came
o blows. In the altercation Rosebrook
iucce?ded in drawing out his revolver
md tired, the ball entering near the
'rioutu and ranging back, fhillipa
jroue away and ran a short distance, fol
owed by his antagonist, who became enr
angled ip eojnp underbrush and fell.
Phillips, thotigh feakfrom the effects of
ji* wound, turned toward Boselrook, who
vas yet unable to extricate himself, and,
retting within ? few feet of him, discharged
ais weapon twice into ftjsebrooH'q hp0d
me Ipmng tajflntf etfept |n the side of {lis
face, the othpr in tnp nepk. Philips, aftpr
finishing his work as bo thought, managed
to get to a house near by, where his wounds
were dressed by the occupants. Roeebrook
was taken to his house, where died shortly
ifter. At last accounts Phillips was still
alive, though the attending physician says
tie cannot poesibly recover.

Rev. J. F. McDowell, of Chicago, a mie*
aionaryof the Monugaraic Mormon Church,
or as it ia olliciaUy called the Reorganised
Church of Jesua Christ of tatter Day'
Sain to, lectured at the church o* this sect
juat south of the Kigbth ward last bight,
the title of his discourse being "Ait Au
thentic Kxpose of Utah Mormon lain."
The only thing in common between the
Utah Church and the people Mr. McDow
ell represents, is their belief in the Book of
Mormon, which they believe to have
been discovered' by Joseph Smith
in 1830 through the inetrumen-.
tality of an angel. The church govern
ment of the two bodies ia also cast in the
same general mold. Polygamy ia the rock
on which they split. Mr. McDonnell ja
persistent in his denunciation of this her
esy of the Utah Mormons, and he points
out passages in the Book of Mormon which
condemn plurality of wives in the most
emphatic terms. One ?f these from the
book of Jacob reads:
"Wherefore, my brethern, hear me, and
harken unto the word of the Lord. For
there shall not any man among you hare
save it be one wife, and concubines he
shall have none, for I, the Lord God, de
! light in the chastity of women."
The book of Doctrine and Covenants,
accepted as inspired bydivineauthorlty by
the Saints, also says: "Thou shalt love
thy wife with all thy heart, and cleave un
to her and none elan."
| The expose in the lecture last night was
not as sens itional as those given the public
by Ann El'zi Young and others, the main
of>ject of the speaker apparently being to
show the distinction between his own
church and that of Brigham Young. He
did not seem to regard Anu Elizi very
kindly, declaring that fahe had been heard
plotting with several inutile lawyers of Salt
Lake City in the house in which she ie
sided there, to mak? money by suing Brig
ham Young for divorce and almony.
He said Mies Wells, who after
ward became Brigham's nineteenth wife,
and won fame by leaving the church and
exposing its iniquities, embraced polygamy
with her eyes open, and only forsook anu
denounced it when she thought she could
make money by so doing, tied welt upon
the evils of tho Endowment House and
other well-known Utah institutions but
briefly. Yet his talk served to imprese the
wickedness of the system of P9lygamy upon
the minds of his hearers, as he spoke of a
matter witn which he was familiar, with
an eloquence and feeling born of personal
knowledge of his subject
