August Oth. Narragausett Pier never had such a sen sation as it is now enjoying; a sensation in which one of the foremost men in the coun try ligures; his alleged foe in combat, for a light is said to have occurred, being equally well known in Rhode Island. The men re ferred t«i arc Senator Roscoe Conkling and Ex-Seunalor and Ex-Governor Win. Sprague, of Rhode Island. In order to do full justice to all parties ncerned, it may be as well to repeat the yig extract from to-night's Bulletin : excitement wns caused in this icinily this morning hy exaggerated reports Van unpleasant occurrence last evening at residence of Ex-Governor and Ex-Sena albr Sprague. It appears that Mr. Sprague lias a violent antipathy towards a German gentleman connected with the academy in some way, and teacher of liis children. On going to this house last evening, under ex treme and irrational excitement Mr. Sprague had an altercation with liis teacher, ordering him from the house, and it is said, loading a gun and attempting to shoot him, to which the teacher not unreasonably objected. Sen ator Conkling, who was in Providence, had casually stopped at Narraganset Pier on some legal business, attempted with a number of others to ealm Sprague's fury, but without effect until the unnatural excitement had subsided. One reason of the disturbance at the Sprague mansion is the temporary re moval of the family to a neighboring hotel, and the story is told by citizens of Narragan sett Pier, and the following is all that can lie learned of the partieulai's fron this point of view : It is well known that an ill feeling lias for some time existed between Sprague and Conkling, presumably mu political grounds. On Tuesday last Conkling arrived here on private business itj no way connected with Sprague's affairs and called as a friend of the family at Sprague's house. For some time it. it is known, too. that Sprague has been i cJilh<Ter"v isiTfle excitement, and absent home in company with some friends in ed in- railroads. He is believed to have with these friends yesterday, and had ' em in a heavy excitement of mind, hen he went to his house lie found Conk ling there, with whom he had a political disa greement as to the rights of a naturalized citizen.s Local stories ofThe affairs are natu rally exaggerated, and it is difficult to obtain satisfactory information. From wliat, how ever is believed to bp a well informed source, it is learned that Sprague uttered some un seemly language to Conkling, who, cour teously and considerately forbore to reply. Sprague thereupon producing a pistol, told Conkling that unless be left, the house in a very short given time he would blow liis brains out. Conkling thereupon retired from the scene. It is said further that there was a hostile meeting subsequently at the Cape, hut that cannot be verified, ami is probably not. true.' This is the talk of all tin* clubs to-day ; it is cm every body's tongue, and 1 give it. just, as it is told. What the report of this matter will lie cannot now be foretold. The truth will sooner or later come out, as tlieie were many witnesses, anti the air is full of it. it is true That Sprague is a man of violent temper, and -v 1- •«» acted hastily, iiut liis friends Item ■ nigh that lie was grossly insulted by I. inkling, and means to i 1 sist. upon i'i- tod public apology. It is known that R..i? lately been talking with liis friends of ■ milles which were preying upon his mind, and has said also that, he believ'd that the finie had arrived when duels should again he in force in ibis country. He is understood to have said that, there are certain iusulls which ■an onlv be wiped out with blood " New York. Aug. II.—The 7Vmss' Provi dence Rhode island social repolis the story of the Sprague scandal i!nsiibs'an!iated as first .mid in the Associated Tress dispare'ies. making » German music teacher the object of Sprague's wrath. It says it. was a second nt '««-k to injure him. A fortnight ago at. Watch Hill Sprague assailed the same person with a sth-k. The teacher is a German from New York, who is passing a vacation near Narra gansett l'ier. and was hired to instruct Sprague's children during certain hours a day. St. Lotis. Aug. 10.—A ni.niie-r of Mem phis refugees held a cling at the Liudell Hotel this afternoon in response to a circular received here from l-lie Committee of Safety at Memphis, asking for aid in upporting the poor people of that city during tin* prevail ence of yellow f-.-er there. $1.555 were sub scribed on tin- spot oy nineteen business firms, and donations will be solicited of every mphisinn in the city. Win. Wallace, a Metropolitan Policemen of East S'. Louis, and Jack Sullivan, who was a very strong partisan of Mayor ISoeruiau luring the political troubles of that city a .• ago. got into a quarrel at a saloon near ftie stock vards to-day during which they emptied tbeii revolvers at each other. Sulli van was shot in the left lireait and died in half an hour. Wallace is badly wounded in the thigh. Sullivan began tin- quarrel and tired two shots at Wallace before the latter drew liis pistol. Memphis, August 11.— Five new eases were reported this morwing. Four deaths nave occurred since last night. A telegram received from an authentic source positively denies tin» report of one case of fever at May nrsville, Mississippi. New Youk, August II.—The Herald 's Memphis special savs the Howard physicians «ml visitors report the feier spreading rapidly in the suburbs of the eitj. The greifest des titution prevails, and notwithstanding the j city officials aie' straining every point and hope to be able to weather the storm without ! appealing to the outside world, 1 venture the I prediction that within ten days they will be I forced to make appeal. The Howard Asso i dation is in the same dilemma. It is at the ; great expense of over $500 a day which is i hourly increasing with less than $13,000 in j the treasurv. St. Paul, August 10.—A special party ot Canadian officers have arrived here trow an inspection of the country north of lake Supe rior. The country traversed was of a wild and barren nature, worthless for settlement but having rich undeveloped silver mines. The officers bring reports of the exceedingly indifferent construction of the Canada Pacific Railroad. In the region through which they passed on two sections of the road which passes through dei.se standing timber and almost impenetrable country, the grading is completed after blasting through 5,0U0 cubic fe et of granit e . — Two oth e r graded must be blasted through solid granite lor u great distance and will cost two millions each. About two thousand men are now at work on the line. New York, Aug. 10.—The Times of to-day »sys: "Thickening rumors of a rupture be i ween Russia and Germany, and mysterious hints at the connection between the rather abrupt change in Bismarck's inter-ocean pol icy and certain necessities in his foreign pol icy cannot but attract the attention of the Germans. The great avowed goal of ail of Bismarck's exertion is not complete until the German part of Austria, comprising Moravia, Styria, Austria Propel, Tyrol and Illyria is freed from an unnatural union with Magyar and Sclavic provinces, and incorporated with Germany, but there is only one way in which this can be done, namely : by moving the centre of the Austrian Empire from Vienna to Buda or Pestii, and transforming Austria into a great Sclavic power, with access to the Black and -Egan seas. That Bismarck îeally entertains such ideas is evident, and in recent excited conversation with Littsaubc, Rou manian Ambassador, he made it more appar ent whet lie plainly declared if Roumaniu did not fulfill the treaty of Berlin with re spect to the emancipation of the Jews her independence would not he recognized, but she would be placed under tlie suzerainty of Tuikey or some oilier power. The Times prints three columns of comparative labor statistic of this country and Europe says in every case it will be found that the American laborer is paid better aud can maintain himself aud family at less cost than the European workman in a similar branch of industry; but it is interesting to compare the condition of different nationali ties as to the matter of material, propriety, comfort and contentment. The English workman seems to have the best opportuni ties for bettering himself, but strikes and tip pling are fatal drawbacks to liis advancement. In France and Belgium, in spite ol low wages, and scanty means of susteuence, the laboring people are thrifty aud contented. In Germany the condition of the working people is most deplorable ; destitution an dis palr appearlo stare them in tlie free. Com pared with tlie condition of other people that of American laboring men would seem tu indicate discontent as one of their own natural traits. Cincinnati, August 10.— Mrs. Caroline Florenz, wife of Anton Florenz, of Vienna, Austria, who had eloped from that city with one Nathan Shirk, and whose abandonment and effort at suicide was reported, died at 3 o'clock to-day. The ease is a most singular one. She shot herself in tlie head on June 14, tlie bail, weighing 30 grains, entering lier brain. After being severed into four pieces, probably by contact with the bone, three of these pieces, weighing nineteen grains, were removed hy the surgeons, amt the woman appeared in a fair way of recovery. Since the shooting sir had learned that her hus band was willing to forgive her. and site ap peared anxious to live. Inr. dining Ui" last few days she sank rapidly, dying to-dav. Wasi.nciton, Aug. 10.—The Secretary of the Emigrant Aid Society of tlie District < f Columbia, received a Idler Iront Governor St. .John. President of the Freedman's Re lief Association of Kansas, from which the following extracts are taken: The lid' it immigration continues to llmv notthwaul in almost h : i unbroken stream, ami noies-. ! c eeked hy quarantine regnltitn.ns established I along the Mississippi, there ! - .o telling i.t-t where it will -top.

Sprague, of Rhode Island, at NaragiinscU 1'iee last Friday, gives rise to much comment here, but is received with little surprise. Intimate relations existing between the Senator and Mrs. Sprague have been an open scandal in Washington society for more than two years, although tlie press has for most part refrained from making them subject of remark. It. Is even known to a few that Gov. Sprague more than a year ago in structed a prominent lawyer in this city to commence proceedings against Mrs. Sprague for a divorce, hut was dissuaded from this step, and induced to seek a reconciliation. Since that time, as before, Senator Conkling has been almost a constant visitor at Mrs. Sprague's country residence at Edgewood, near this city, aud liis marked attentions whenever they meet in public, liis abrupt, departure from evening parties when site was absent, and tlieir open exchange of notes while she was in the gallery and lie on the floor of the Senate, have given rise to much gossip. The reports from Narragausett Piet as to tlie nature and cause of last Friday's difficulty are very conflicting, hut tlie general impression here seems to be that, it, was toward Senator Conkling and not toward music teacher Linde that Sprague's animosity was manifested, and that Mrs. Sprague could explain the reason for it. Senator Conkliiig's friends here admit that he lias been foolish aud imprudent, but deny that liis friendship for Mrs. Sprague has ever been anything more than tlie expression of a strong intellectual sympathy. The stories which are and have long been current hero with regard to their intimacy, iiis friends declare to he malicious gossipping. New Yoiik, Aug. 13.—A Memphis special says fully live hundred persons .-ittctidid t !••■ funeral .-ii.i--. tci-.. of J. II. liiill.coli'ifei'PcIvi gyinau.

About How Up Rescued • strange Cllrl Chicago Times. "Do you take items here ?" he asked as he entered the sanctum, scraped his cap from his head with his forearm and threw one heel to the rear. "My name is Charles Jack son, sir and I'm a sailor. I don't look as slick as 1 might, but I'm in better shape than 1 was an hour ago sir, since I'm shaved and cleaned up. You see, I had been down to my sisters to-niglit, and as I was forgeing along up State street, just abaft Jerry MotiroVs place, 1 hove in sight, of a trim-built craft with a carpet-bag in lier bands,and two ugly looking lubbers had hove along side and was pretendin' to tell her which way to go to the cars. I kept on my course for a bloek or so, when all at once simething seemed to tell me to go back ami throw that girl a line. I came about and cruised along the other side of the street till 1 was in speaking distance, and then shortened sail. By this time the lubbers bad towed the git-1 in front of a she bang, sir and the she-devil as runs it was out and spilinin'a yarn to the little one, telliiT her as how if she'd just come in and sit down for a few minutes the car as would lake her over to tlie north side to her sisters where she wanted to anchor, would come sailin' right past the door. With their coaxin' and wheedlin' they had almost pursiiadcd the poor thing lo go Into that infernal den. Bein' the father of a family and two children myself, I couldn't lay to a minit longer, and giving my pants a hitch I lurched right into the middle of the gang. 'Beg pardon, miss,' sez 1 'bill these lubbers is steerin' you to the devil with all. sails set, and if you'll take a line I'll pull you safe through.' You see when 1 looked at the fellows and then at my self, shiver my timbers if they didn't look better than me, and no wonder the timid lit tle tiling was as Trait! of me as of t.licin, and tliey tumbled to this themselves, aud told her 1 was worse than a loafer, ami ordered me to clear away. But, 1 stood right up to them, and kiiulei quieted tlie girl, and gave her confidence like in me, and told her I'd t ike her to the ears all right if I had to make still' of t hose scoundrels, and she began to go along with me. Those lubbers was beautiful mad, and they followed us. and every minit t hey'd make a rush for us. mid then I'd heave to pretend to pull a gun, and swear I'd blow 'em out of water, if they crossed our bows, and they'd fall back and swear at us. And so 1 got the girl to the ears, and put her aboard, and told her to go and findhersister. And then she got grateful like, and she drew a dollar from her pocket aud said I should keep it. But 1 told her to keep her ballast for a stoi my day, as I was fixed ; though atwixt. us, sir, I havti't a cent. Nor had I a pistol in tlie row at all, for Fu soaked it aL my uncle's this very night and drank it up, and borrowed the money that shaved and cleaned me up. This is a pretty long yarn to hist in, stranger, but it's t he truth, amt as the girl wouldn't tell me her n nr ' i ■ miï»li . iven let in« 1 cayrv nor rlfpei-bag. iearin' as howl mighi. ..in'a-.vay with it, bless lier scared soul, 1 jest thought I'd climb up and tell about, it. so if she ever sight your yarn she'll know it was Charles Jackson as seen her through, and lie's proud of it. What street was the shelung on '* ask me some thing about tlie Cape of Good Hope and I'm your man. It wasn't tar from Fifth avenue, over cross on the street t hat runs past tlie police station, and that's all I know aboutit." And the weather beaten tardonned liis cap and disappeared. Origin «r Tn« l'opnlnr l'oeniH. Hoist's touching lyric, "The Song of the shirt," was the work of an evening.
