The leading candidates ate Depew and Wadsworth. 1 he latter is ambitious and has a fortune of $5, 000,000, New York, May 24.— The Past's Albany special says the Con kling men claim that a majority of tlie republicans wiil sign a call this afternoon for a caucus on Thursday. Judge Robertson and the Gat field men say the Administration men were nevermore nu merous nor in better spirits. The Commercial's Albany special says tlie halfbieed's claim that they have atready a majority against Cbnkiiog and l'latt. New Yoi'.K, May 23.—A number of Brook lyn clergymen to-day used tire revised New Testament. Bi-hop Simpson, of tlie M. E Church, Brooklyn, laised $10.000 towards ex tinguislitug tlie debt of $40,000. A number of administration republicans were about the Fifth Avenue Hotel last eve ning, but they were not in the least cast down by the announcement of the candidacy of the ex-senators. Anti-Conklmg men claim that fifty-two republicans in the legislature are pledged against tbs ex-senatois. Chicago, May 25.—News has just been received of a 'horrible murder for money com mitted Sunday at a settlement called Swede Bend in b oval Lars Bonland, an eccentric old man, » ho had lived alone m a huf over twenty years.. « as'the victim. 11 ts head was mashed and a'corn-cob crowded into his month to stille los cries. The body »a- found in a ditch near Ida l.oo se by tlie neighbors. London, May 23.—The attempt to stir up a feeling in England against France over tlie Tunis affair, which was mainly fostered by tlie Tori.-s, has proved a fizzle. The English people do not caie about Tunis and i heir ver die' is t liât France is only doing in the North what England has been doing'in the South of Africa. The London papers have ex pressed great indignation at. tlie answer of the I'a:is journals, which was lo this effect, "mind your own business," but the masses put. a high value upon tlie good understand ing between the two countries. New \ouk, May 23.—The Tribune says : Senator Ccnkling, in answer to tlie inquiries of friends, said lie was in tlie hands of Ins friends and would do wliat they thought best. He did not think this state approved of tlie course of men who proved traitors to General Gram, at Chicago, and the state would show tiiat its senators did right in protesting against rewarding them. Notwithstanding the coil fide id talk of Conkling men Iasi night, they were ail willing to admit that a hard ft ,:.t would have to he made at Albany. By the extraordinary precab ions they have taken to prevent a disclosure of their plans, they ad mi teil that any "vindication" Conkling should receive would not he of much benefit. The previous talk of Conkling's resigning to ractice law was i ever so much as referred pract to, a tit. tiie $50.900 offer was not mentioned. It was not a question any longer as to the candi racy of the senators, but "could they be elected ?" London, May 23.—Gladstone has recover ed from the attack of dysentery which pros trated him some davs ago and appears iu his old place in tlie House, but the signs of de cay are becoming more and more manifest in him. This lias been a trying session for him. The Clerical papers are still abusing him for not slamming the doors of the House in Bradlaugh's face. It is strange that the Pre mier, who has been all Ids life an intense Churchman, should be so bitterly hated hy mem tiers of the established church. The Disraeli crowd was once described as the blank between the Old and New Testament and tlie parson found regard for him. Of course their hostility toward Mr. Gladstone arises in some degree from fear that, lie will lav sacrilegious hands upon the establish ment and turn it loose among dissenters as he did the Irish Church, but that does not. ae count for the venomous eagerness with which they pursue him when as in this Brad laugh business a mob is at his heels. New York, May ?3.—The Times says tlie question of the intention of the ex-Senators Conkling and Platt, in regard to endeavoring to induce tlie legislature to return them to the United States Senate which they volunta rily relinquished a week ago, was definately settled yesterday morning. It was unto sun rise when tlie distinguished ex-Senator sought repose, and »lien he did so, his plans for tlie campaign on which he is about to en ter on behalf of himself and Platt were thor oughly matured. At 1 o'clock yesterday morn- | ing, Conkling and Platt entered a coupe and j diiven to the residence of Vice-President-Ar- | tbu r . Here they were met by Vice-President I Arthur, Speaker Sharp of the Assembly, As semblyman Carpenter, Police Commissioner French, Charles Dennison and Arthur B. Johnson, of Utica, John F. Smytiie, of Alba ny, ex-United Stales Marshall Zaine, of New York, and Senator Jones ot Nevada, and the anxiously expected conference was held. The conference was suggested and arranged by the Governor and he promised to present himself a' d personally urge Coukliugti again become a candidate. London, May 20.—Tlie arrest of Father Sheehy. of Kilmailock, for inciting a strike j among the peasant laborers employed on tlie j large estates in tlie county of Limerick, has created intense excitement throughout Ire land and among the Irish members of tlie House of Commons. It is the first arrest of an Irish priest for an offense of the kind since the old penal days. In the 1798 affair, Father Sheehy was judicially murdered, being con victed of killing a man whose body could not be found, for the good and sufficient reason that be had left the country in the best 01 health, and, "remember Sheehy, the Sog garth," was the cry that fired the hearts of mauy a peasant horde In their conflict with the Orange yoemanry. "Remember Sheehy, the Soggarth," is now the cry thoughout Munster and Connaughi, and we may safely count on hearing ol a large increase in the number of agrarian outrages and a series of collision, between Parueil's followers and Foster. It is probable, however, that Father Sbeehy's course will be condemned by his bishop, Bishop Butler, of Limeiick, being it is said, as stiff an opponent ef the agrarian agitation as Dr. Moriantay, of Kerry, was 01 Fenianism, and that Archbishop McCabe's repeated warning lo the clergy will be sup plemented before long by *n authoritative declaration. Washington, May 24.—The Virginia re adjusters' leaders are arriving to bave au im portant conference with Malioue before tlie state convention next week. Wilson, repub, lican postmaster of Lynchburg, after a con ference with Sécrétai y Blame last week an nounced that tlie administration wanted the Virginia republicans to make their own fight iu tlie slate this year. Tin removal of re publican postmasters caused dissatisfaction tliis year among the republicans, and the Mabode conference is to shape the policy and lesolulioiis of tlie conventual of «adjusters. Greever is tlie candidate for governor, and Massey and Cameron for am'itorship. Many demi crats are disappointed through the fail ure of Mahone's plans. London, May 23—In the House of Com mons to-day O'Donneil, Home Rule member for i) Ungar van, speaking in support of the resolution on the arrest of Father Sheehy and Dillon, made a bitter attack on Forster, G id of Secretary for Ireland. He said the ar rest of Father Sheehy excited even a strong er feeling than if Arcinl shop Crone had been arrested. It was deemed safer to arrest a curate than an archbishop, hut though tlie act was cowardly it was by no means safe. He proceed'd to attack tne government for ass : sting to evict poverty-strickeu people, ami stigmatized the. recent cow Dun urging tlie police to g real er vigilance as a uirect «vehe ment to tlie fabrication of evidence. Forster said lie refused to dwell upon O'Donnell's assertions, beeouse they were unfounded. The following correspondence recently passed between "Skinny '' V\ aterhouse, who is under rarest for robbery, and an official of Cluster county.

At. Vfaiie Dock, tlie first stopping piece after leaving Spring Banks, she was alt right, hut tlie dock men say that she was oyerciowded and shaky, and it is learned from other sources that she and other boats look down far more people than it was possible forthem to bring lack again this evening without overloading. At 7 o'clock there being uo word of tlie Vic toria, the people of Durdun street Dock be came extremely uneasy, and officials of the line were unable to relieve their anxiety. A few moments afterwards a messenger from Woodlawu Park arrived with the news tiiaL tho • vessel had sunk with ail on board. A terrible scene ensued at the dock. The cries of those who had friends on board being distressing lo a great degree. Word was at once dispatched lo Spring Bank to send two boats lo tlie scene of the disaster, but they had left for home. T w o tug boats were dispatch d from here car rying doctors and other assistance. From meagre paniculars as yet obtainable here, it appears tnai the Victoria was going at a slow raie of speed v. I.en tlie disaster happened. A band was hoard said t ' I i ' .v u.,mi «as o;i have been a detachment | l of the baud of the 7th Fusileers nnd the peo- , pie on board had cleared a space on deck for dancing; thus throwing the crowd on the for- 1 bridge, a mile below the cily, she keeled I . i j i .. . 1 a little to one side and tlie excursionists, now numbering 600, rushed lo the other side. Tlie boat gave a lurch and sunk almost immedi ately, going completely to pieces. Her small boats and life boars »ere in good order, but the vessel capsized so suddenly there was uo time to U6e them. The Victoria was lying al most on her side and the people were cimg ing to the boat ami the wreckage tiiat floated from lier. T he men made desperate eff orts to Hive llieir wives and children hut iu tlie con . I fusion it was a hard matter to recognize the j face and cries for help coming from every j side. Familiar voices cou.d not be distin- | guished in the appalling uproav. At the time I of writing ibis it is estimated 180 persons per- i ished. ' LATEIt. , s j I lle boat shipped water on her down but all went well until the return trip. When | over ! alf tho way home tlie pi auks of play!,a 1 youths on the lower deck and tiie boat, sH'ik ing a snag caused a rush of water to one side when water a foot or two deep broke over the lower deck which was crowded with pas sengers. Instantly tlie crowds on both decks rushed to the opposite side and their weight and water shipped caused a lurch in the oppo site direction and the boat sank over two feet. While the crowd on^the iower deck were struggling to save themselves from slipping into the river a stanchion suddenly gave way and the whole upper deck with its load of hu man beings came down on those below crush ing and einprisoningthem. It is impossible to describe tlie scene tiiat followed. Tlie boat con tinued settling sideways taking many passen gers who were buried by the fall of the up per deck and were unable to help themselves. Scores sank iu the water without effort while many others who were precipitated in the riv er unhurt rent the air with their vain appeals ! for succor which those who Were safe were | powerless to extend. j As soon as the passengers could secure help, the work of recovering the bodies pro- j ceeded. It was midnight before the bodies I were brought back to the city, although tbe j accident occurred about 0:15. Here the most heart-rending scene ensued, i'he bodies, as fast as thev weie transferred from the steam-: er, were laid out in a room or on tlie grass i.y : the river side, all in tbeir holiday attire, and with tlie aid of torches faces were eagerly ■scanned by hundreds ot anxious friends looking for their blissing ones. A goodly pioporlion of the drowned are men in middle life and many children. Many were tlie wails of sorrow w hich followed the identifie» tinn of relatives. As fast as the corpses were claimed they were taken in charge by friends and removed home. Tlie utmost confusion prevails. It is impossible to secure a com plete list of the drowned, but it includes many of tlie most prominent citizens. When tlie water was let off the stern, after the removal of planks and boards, the search was continued for bodies under the lower deck, and tweuty-two more were brought to the surface, making about two hundred in all secured. It is not known how many more, if any, are lost. The city coun cil met to-day, tlie 25th, and passed a resolu tion oi condolence. A settled gloom reigns in tlie city. K. C. Montgomery, a leather merchant of Toronto, was on board hut es caped and succeeded in saving many others, lie states that on the passage tip the captain went among the passengers u ging th#in to keep on tho other side. He said; "F.or God's sake, keep o i the other side ; if you don't you'll liaye to swim for it." A liLtle laior on lie saw the ivalor p iss in over the deck and tho boiler by the board, when tlie crash immediately took place. All business is at a stand-still and crowds line the streets discussing tlie sad calamity. The burial of the victims is at this hour, 2:30 p. m., proceeding. A solemn at illness pre vails throughout tlie city: (lags are at half mast and bells toiling knells. New Yoke, May 28 —Tlie Times editorial says: The struggle at Albany is suspended hy the adjournment of the legislature until Monday. Conkling has come hack to this city apparently intensely convinced that, his election hy this legislature and by the rtpub iicau votes is impossible. No one kno ts what will be the next move ment. The ex-senator is in no mood to an nounce it. The indications which se- mod uo Thursday to point to a possible advance on the part ni ids friends toward an 'honorable and I armonious arrangement have come to nothing after a week of disgraceful and hu miliating personal canvass such as Ten days since it, Would have been believed to be utter ly impossible for him to stoop to. He with drew for a moment, defeated and Ids oppo nents are prognostic»'mg that he will now make an arrangement with tlie Democrats. We decline to believe it buL failingtli.rt it, rs difficult to see what there is left for him but to abandon the. contest. The situation to which he lias brought liis pat ty is to the last degree painful and disgust ing, and is felt to lie so hy tile great, uiajor.ly ot Republicans, lie can still save a little of their respect and his self respect by leaving the legislature free to choose two !l publican sen ators. ' Chicago, May 28.—Supt. Williams, of the Western o 4 m>a Telegraph Company in Cin cinnati, and Manager Fiank A. Armstrong, bave resigned. Tlie air is full of rumors of résigna ions in tiie company, it seeius tne policy of the new administration is to weed out gradually all the old heads as soon as they can be supp!., uted without, too apparent det riment to tiie company.

New York, May 27.—A "News" Al bany special says that Conkling proba bly will not return here as many who signed the call for a caucus to-night will not consider themselves bound to a call for Monday night, and a formal caucus is very i mprobable. Conkling's only hope is in tiie arrival of Grant and his influ ence in his favor. The opposition say that even Grant would be ineffectual. The "Graphic's" Albany special says that Conkling is sure of an election by democratic votes and will accept them. The "Commercial's" Albany special says that the stalwarts are more confi dent than yesterday. Many of them have gone home and the half breeds' boasts have subsided. The Brooklyn "Eagle's" Albany special says that Judge Robertson is well satis fied, and says that tlie administration peo ple have made no mistake yet, and that the fact .is that Conkling and Platt are beaten. If they adjourn the legislature we will lie glad to light them among the people. Conkling will return Monday and make a public speech.

Internal revenue will be $12, 300,1 M0 and the reduction of the debt for May will lie over $11,000,000. There is no danger that Secretary Win dom will relax his efforts to punish treas ury officials, guilty of a misuse of public money. Private friendship will not save any one. John G. Thompson, sergeant at arms of the house of representatives since 1874, is behind in his money ac counts with congressmen. He has been in the habit of drawing pay for congress men and holding it subject to their order or check. He went beyond bis means and now is unable to meet the checks, lie has a bond, but tbe law is such that his bondsmen cannot lie held. It is claim ed that some congressmen have been ac commodated beyond what was due them, and that he will assume every dollar. San Francisco.

The railroad people sent a courier to the camp and laid the whole outfit with tlieir supplies transferred to an island in tlie center of Mono lake. The rioters not being pre pared for a long campaign returned to town and endeavored to raise funds to provide provisions, but with slight suc cess. The movement does not have the sympathy of the people or of the miner's union, who disavow any connection with it. St. Locks, May 27.—A contract is just closed here for the experimental ship ment of 30,000 bushels of spring wheat from St. Paul to Glasgow, Scotland, hy barges to New Orleans and then by steamer. The barges to receive the grain are to leave here for St. Paul to-morrow. If tliis experiment proves successful others will follow, amounting, perhaps, to millions of bushels. The rate is twen ty-eight cents per bushel. A large lot of sacked flour has just been shipped front here to Liverpool via the river to New Orleans at the extremely low rate of fifty cents perjhundred. New York, May 27.— In the general assembly of tlie reformed Episcopal church to-day a resolution was adopted declaring that, as tne new version of the New Testament has been issued, and was now presented to tlie church and Christian world for their acceptance or rejection; therefore it was P 3 sense of council that the revised edition of the New Testament should lie reverently and ! carefully examined with a view to its approval by the church. Albany, May 27. — A caucus of the democrats is called for Monday evening. The general opinion among them is tiiat new names will be presented and that Seymour, Robinson and Tilden are out of tlie question. Clarkson N. Potter will probably he one of the candidates.

London, Ont., May 27.—Business is re sumed, although some houses are closed yet. Nearly all the funerals have taken place and the police are still searching for bodies, but fruitlessly. The melan choly collection of personal effects is still being viewed at police headquarters in hopes of obtaining mementoes. The in vestigation will probably be tedious.

Tlie ! ot sp •ings of 'olorado may derive a pori ion >f Hi dr heat OUI tlie . i"co nposilIon .»1 lime, but this is ut a secon iaiy cause. Plie great anti first cause of heat in springs and mines is tlie decomposition of non pyrites —masses of iron and sulphur. A Steamboat Springs and oilier pljßeg in this slate, ami at most of the hot springs in California, the Heat is produced by tlie burning out or decom position ot iron pyrites. At Steamboat Springs tlie course of tlie deposits of iron pyrites is northeast and southwest, tlie same as that of the great mineral bearing veins of tlie state. Tlie line of the active springs follows the course of this deposit, moving toward the noitheasl. At tlie southwest end are to be seen places »diese tiie deposit of iron pyrites aim similar minerals carrying large quantities of sulphur has burned out, aini,ihe sp ings have died away. The process of burning out is slowly moving toward the northeast. In 1860 the writer saw a new spring just starting up through a thick growth of grass in a bit of meadow far in advance of tlie older ami larger ones, but on the samegeneial fine, well out to the 1 orlheast. The base metal deposit at Sie uni boat •Springs also lias tlie same dip as tlie Corn stock, and is working east as well as toward tiie north. By going from half to three quarters of a mile west of tho present active springs at Steamboat, one may see where tlie springs were ages ago, along near the crop pings or upper edge of the deposit or pyritic matter. As the decomposition proceeded downward ami eastward along tlie dip of the deposit, tiie steam and hot water found or forced new vertical channels ot escape. Some of these openings are probably natural crevices, but tlie majority are undoubtedly rents produced by tlie force of steam and pent-up gases. Even on tlie surface of Steam boat Springs are to be seen long rents from an inch or two to over a foot in width that have a northeast and southwest course. In California some of the iiot springs are ob served to be dying out at one end of their line and advancing into new ground at the other. At Steamboat Springs wo probably see a big mineral vein (like the Comst ock) in pro cess of formation. Ages ago there was prob ably a line of hot springs along the course ot the Comstock.' Tlie mines of Europe ami Mexico, which are comparatively • cold at great depths, are undoubteuiy ages and ages older than the Comstock. Tlie Comstock is probably the youngest mine iu any part of tlie w orld that is now known or being worked. Here, down in our lower levels, we are fol lowing close upon the heels of nature— getting well down into her workshop.
