TIIE CHOLERA. Particular» in Regard to the Asiatic Scourge. New Yokk, September 23.-The steam ship Alesia, which arrived last night from Marseilles and Naples witk 600 pas sengers, has the Asiatic cholera on board. Kight of her passengers died on the pas ^e, and on her arrival at guarantee the health officer found four cases aboard. He has sent the Alesia and her passengers to West Bank in the lower Bay. The Alesia left Marseilles August 30th and Naples September 3d. She is consigned to James X Elwell & Co. On September 12 Luigi Maria, a steerage passenger, aged 23 years, was taken sick and died on the 15th. Paul Antonio Bild yaria. another steerage passenger, aged 36, was taken sick and died on the same date Septemlier 15th). Jean Fenevolin, a sailor, aged 40, died on the following day, in less than twenty-four hours from the time he was taken with the disease. On the 17th Jean Somma, a sailor, aged 30, was taken sick and died on the 19th. Serafin Delis, aged 21, a steerage passenger, died on the 18th. Anna Veltri, a steerage passenger, aged 47, died on the 21st. Francisca Matteo, aged 41, was taken „jck before comiDg aboard and died on the •J2d, probably of bronchitis. Maria An tonio Scala Veno, aged 59, was also ailing at the time of coming aboard and died on the 22d, though without any symptoms of cholera. All were buried at sea. The s-hip is now in Lower bay. The sick pas sengers will be transferred to the Swin burne Island hospital, and all the remain ing passengers will be transferred to Hoff man Island for observation. The ship will remain in the lower bay until she has been thoroughly fumigated and cleansed. The quarantine board think they are fully able to grapple successfully with the exigencies of the occasion. Washington, Sept. 23.—Surgeon Gen eral Hamilton of the marine hospital ser vice, has received a dispatch lrom New York confirming the press report of the ar rival there of the steamship Alesia, with cholera on board. The telegram merely announced the facts in the case as publish ed without rnakiDg a request for govern ment assistance, and it is thought the quarantine authorities of New York feel confident of their ability to stamp out the disease without asking help. New York, September 23.—The general agent of the Fad re line, J. Terkmle, was notified of the existence of cholera, and the quarantine commissioners, Mr. Terk nile and K. S. Miller, secretary of the quarantine commission, at once proceeded to quarantine. An extended examination by Health Officer Smith resulted in the discovery of lour additional cases on board, which bad apparently developed during the day. The ship was at once ordered down to the lower bay. The sick were conveyed to the hospital on Swinburne Island, and the remainder of the 561 steer age passengers were transferred to the hospital at Hoffman's Island. Three of the cabin passengers on board, together with thirty-five surviving members of the crew, were also transferred to Hoffman's Island by the Castle Island transfer boat. The Alesia sailed lrom Naples at the time the cholera was raging in that city. Those who were takeu sick got aboard the steamer at Naples. It is thought that some of the easts originally came from tSicily. In speaking of his experience at Hospital Island, Mr. Terknile said he was very much surprised to see every one so cheerful. On board of the steamer every one seemed as happy and contented as possible. The only persons who were not enjoying them selves wtre those who were sick or bad relatives who were suffering. The vast amount of baggage which is always carried ou board ot Italian steamers was taken off the steamer to Hoffman Island. The bag gage and passengers were placed in one of the large hospitals and subjected to rigor ous fumigation with sulphur, and as fast as the passengers and baggage were lurni gated they were transferred to the im mense hospital building. Everything was done to avoid future ravages of the disease. The steamer was also subjected to a thor ough disinfection and cleansing. Secretary Melon, of tbe quarantine commission, re turned from Hoffman's Island late to-night. 11a said there were ten of the sick passen gers of the Alesia sent to Swmburn's Is land. When he left Hoffman's Island a woman and two children were sick, sup posed to Vie in the first stages of the dread <lisea.se. Deaths among those affected were liable to occur at any time. New York, September 23.—President Bayles, of tbe Board of Health, is not at all alarmed over the outbreak of the cholera upon the Alesia. It is too late in the season, he says, to worry. The depart ment is in good shape to deal with the disease. New York, September 24.— J. T. Kuile, general agent of the Favri line, said this iuorniDg that he had given orders last night for three days'provisions to lie sent to Hoffman A Swinburne's Island?, where the passengers of the Alesia, which brought the cholera to this country, are being kept. He was of the opinion that the passengers would have to he quarantined lor eight or ten days, and that after that time there need he no fear of furlher infection. He places great confidence in the ability of Dr Smith and the quarantine officers to pre vent the spread of the scourge. He said that the passengers' baggage would have to he thoroughly fumigated, as considera ble danger would have tobe feared from that source. New York, September 25.—Two patients died last night and one this morning. Twenty-three of the pa-sengers are now very ill. The others are improving. New York, September 26—One more case of cholera has developed among the Italians in quarantine who recently arrived from Naples. Double Murder. San Francisco, September 25.— Word has just reached here that at Indian valley, about 200 miles south of this city, Jno. McArdle and J. C. Bearden were killed yesterday by Newton Azbell. It appears that McArdle and Bearden attempted to file on a land claim previously entered by Azbell, the two former claiming that there w as a defect in the latter's papers, and bit ter disputes arose. Yesterday morning Azbell went to the cabin built by McArdle and Bearden and shot the men while they were in bed. They died instantly. Tbe mur derer, who is a man ot family and has hitherto borne a good reputation, surren dered himself to the officers later in the day. So far he refuses to talk. A Bloody Fend. San Francisco, September 24.—A Pres cott, A. T., special says : Under Sheriff Waddell has received word from Tonto Basin that a fight occurred there on the 18th. Thomas Graham, Joseph Elling wood and a man named Middleton were killed on Graham's side, and Geo. Newton and James Tewkesbury on the Tewkes bury side. The Graham party were in ambush near John Tewkesbury's house and found Tewkesbury on guard. When the Graham party was discovered a battle commenced. John Tewkesbury, who was recently ambushed and killed, was found ten days later. ATLANTIC COAST STORM. Desolation and Great Sutlering. Galveston, September 22.—A special to the News from Brownsville says: A cyclone visited Brownsville last night, carrying destruction in its path. A heavy rain accompanied the storm and deluged tbe country for miles. The loss to property and crops is very great. Thus far no lives are reported lost. The village of Santa Cruz, opposite Brownsville, was entirely submerged for several hours. The Rio Grande rose rapidly and raged like a sea, the backwater overflowing many miles ot fertile country. The wind reached a velocity of over eighty miles an hour, blowing a perfect hurricane for a couple of hours. The rain tall daring last night by actual measurement reached ten inches. The floods did almost as much damage as the wind. In Brownsville 77 small houses were blown down and 300 others partially unroofed. In Matamoras dozens of houses of the better class and 200 smaller ones were prostrated, while from 400 to 500 others were unroofed. In the country on the American side of the river incalculable damage was done. Countless cattle and sheep have been lost. Crops of cotton, corn and sugar cane were completely prostrated and destroyed. Brownsville, Tex., September 23.— A telegram several days ago gave notice of a hurricane southwest of Havana and moving this way, and for two or three days the weather indications showed the approach of a storm. Though the barometer and tide in the gnlf usually give warning of coming had weather, this storm gave no notice of its immediate approach. At 9 o'clock Tuesday evening the norther that had been blowing for several days increased in fierceness, with heavy gnsts of rain. In a short lime the hurricane was on the town in full force, the wind reaching a velocity of 78 miles an Lour. All night long it continued, the howling being mingled now and then with the crash of falling houses, the sound of falling trees, and the rattling of fences as they went over, or the shouts of those deserting their crumbling residences or imploriDg aid. Morning dawned on the scene of desola tion. The water filled the streets, through which the roaring north wind drove the rain like great volleys of small shot, and fallen trees, ruins of houses and prostrate fences, all half submerged in water, ren dered passage difficult and dangerous. At 2:30 p. m. the wind lulled and there was almost a dead calm. The wind arose at intervals, but not so severe, until this morning, when it ceased. The duration of the storm may be said to have been thirty five hours. The rainfall was very heavy— 10 40 inches. The damage in the country outside of the two cities is incalculable. Countless head of cattle and sheep have been lost. Crops of cotton, corn and sugar cane have beeu destroyed. One rancher on a small place calculates hi3 loss in cotton alone at $20,000, and many others are equally heavy losers. The total losses will be far beyond a million dollars. In Brownsville the chief sufl'erers are among the poor. Between sixty and eighty jackals or cheaper class of dwellings have been blown down and fully three hundred have been unroofed aud rendered uninhabitable. The telegraph wires from Point Elizabeth have been blown down and it is not known how tbiDgs are there. There is great suffering among the poor, many of whom are with out resources. The river is again very high and overflowing its banks. At Matamoras the narrow streets during the storm were seas of water, from ankle to nearly hip deep. Even in the more central parts of the town the streets are all encumbered with debris. In the city about a dozen houses of the better class aud fully one hundred fifty or two hundred were un roofed or shattered. The public buildings, stores and better class of dwellings leaked like sieves and all afloat. The unfortunate Lagoon district, south of Plaza del Capilla, is again inundated. A large portion of the houses have fallen. The water is from ankle to waist deep. From twelve o'clock Tuesday night to noon yesterday the police, military and many citizens were engaged in saving the inhabitants and their effects. The suffer ing in the town and conutry is generally severe. SEVERE STORM. Railroad Bridges and Other Property Destroyed. Denver, Col., September 26. —A special from El Paso, Texas, says : A most violent storm has been raging in northern Mexico for several days. At Souz, twenty-eight miles north of Chihuahua, a bridge two hundred feet long is almost completely de stroyed, together with considerable other property. All the trains are delayed. The passengers on the northern bound train were taken to the raoch of Governor Ter razos this morniDg, where they were break fasted aud are being entertained until pre pared to resume their journey. Freight train No. 2 going south, when near Galligo, with two engines ahead and oue behind, broke in two. The fore part stopped and the rear part came crashing into it, totally demolishing two cars and damaging many others. The train men were unhurt. A freight train coming north, when six miles out from Chihuahua, ran into a wash- out and landed the eDgioe and three cars in the flood. Engineer McLane was caught under his engine, hut got out alive and is in a dangerous condition. Several others are reported badly bruised, but noue seri- ously. ---- » ♦ ----- Crops Destroyed by Floods'. TUCSON, Arizona, September 21.—Citi zens who have returned from San Pedro state that all the crops on the bottom lands between Mammoth and Benson have been entirely destroyed by floodä. Fields of growing cane and corn are now- hut a bed of sand. Such a rush ot waters has never been known before. It will take years for the ranchers to recover their losses. Tucson, A. T., September 26.—The first through train on the Southern Pacific rail road left for the east this afternoon and the first train from the east since the 9th ar rived to-night. The weather is settled and no more trouble is anticipated this season. Ocean Perils. San Francisco, September 24. —All the vessels for Atlantic ports which have ar rived here recently report exceeding rough weather off Cape Horn, and it is thought this explains the loDg trips beiDg made by the ships Seminole and Charmer, which sailed from New York in May on an ocean race, and are now one hundred and thirty four days out. Texas Sensation. Houston, Texas, September 26.— Owing to the reports that 200 negroes are under arms in Matagorda county and that the she rills of Matagorda and Hickey counties are moving on them with a large posse of white men, the Houston Light Guards this afternoon received orders to leave on a special train for the scene. The uprising of the negroes had origin in the murder of a negro constable, who had a warrant for the arrest of a white man. TIIE ANARCHISTS. Parson's Appeal to the American People. Chicago, September 21.—A. P. Parsons, the condemned anarchist, sent for a repor ter and gave out for publication a long doenment addressed, "To the American People,'' and made a special request that it be published without alteration. He quotes at length the evidence and rulings of the Supreme Court. He says that the speeches credited to him in the trial were garbled extracts by excited and imagina tive paper reporters ; that his Haymarket speech did not excite to riot, and that there was no connection between his speeches and the death of «Officer Deegan. He says the evidence did not show him guilty but proved his innocence; that he has been convicted as an anarchist and not as a murderer. He came and gave himself up for a fair trial, and appeals to the Ameri can people to avoid the awful crime of ju dicial murder. The lovers of justice are engaged in an effort to thwart the consum mation of judicial murder by commutation I of sentence to imprisonment. For this I thank them, but I am an innocent man. I ( am sacrificed to those who say these men may be innocent, but they are anarchists. 1 am prepared to lay down my life for my rights and the rights of my fellow men. But I object to being killed by false and unproven accusations. Therefore I cannot countenance or accept the efforts of those who would endeavor to procure a com mutation of my sentence to imprisonment. Neither do I approve of any further ap peals to the courts of law, as between capi tal and its legal rights and labor and its legal rights the courts must decide with the capitalist class. To appeal to them would be the appeal of the wage slave to his capitalistic master for delivery. If 1 had never been an anarchist before, my ex perience with the courts and laws would make an anarchist of me now-. 1 appeal not for mercy, hut for justice. After again saying that lie will not ac cept a commutation of sentence, he closes by quoting the language of Patrick Henry, "Give me liberty or give me death." New York, September 21.—A meeting under the auspices of the Sons of Ireland, a new dynamite society, was held at Cooper Union to-night. Aoout 400 people were present. Violent speeches were made by Prof. Mizzeroff, the Russian nihilist, and others, and an address was circulated declar ing against constitutional agitation, and ap pealing for friends to support the Mizzerofi dynamite college, whose object is to pre pare young Irishmen to free Ireland by blowing up London and other English cities. New York, September 22.—Gen. Prior, counsel for the condemned anarchists, says the appeal to be made to the United States supreme court will attack the constitution ality of the Illinois law regarding the con struction of a jury. The Illinois conspir acy statutes will not enter into the ques tion. Cinc innati, September 22.—The social ists last night requested the central execu tive committee of the Union Labor party to intercede in behalf of the Chicago an archists. A vote was taken, and the re quest was refused by a large majority. New York, September 23.—Captain Black had a loDg consultation with Gee. Pryor to-day, and later took charge of the anarchists' appeal. He has not seen the records, but says from Captain Black's notes he has no doubt they will show so many errors that the supreme court will surely grant the writ. Chicago, September 24.—The death or der to the Sheriff of Cook county was handed down by the Supreme Court at Ot tawa this morning and reached Sheriff Watson later in the day. The order recites the substance of the decision in the case of the condemned anarchists, and the sentence of death will be put into execution on the 11th day of November. New York, September 25.—George Francis Train spoke for the first time in many years at Webster hall this evening in favor of the condemned Chicago anarch ists. He talked in a rambliög maDner for two hours, most of the time not referring to the anarchists in aDy way. Johann Most followed him, hut was careful not to oifeDd the police present. Mr. Train said he would speak every night for the anarch ists families' support until Novembtr 11, the day of execution. About $200 was realized to-night. Chicago, September 26.—Tbe anarchist Oscar Necbe, under sentence of fifteen years in the penitentiary, was taken from the county jail and started for Juliette to night. Chicago, Septemlier 26.—M. C.

Assistant District Attorney Nichols said an application for Sharpe's commit ment would be made at once and he would doubtless be sent to State prison in 48 hours. ____ Mandamus Granted. New York, September 22.—Judge \an Brunt, in the supreme court chambers to-day, granted the application made in behalf of the Progressive Labor party (socialist) for an order requiring the hoard of police commissioners to show cause why a mandamus should not he issued to com pel them to appoint the election inspectors named by their party in place of those chosen by the United Labor party ( Henry George).___ ___ Henry George 'l icket Endorsed.

Several of the treasury officers are of the opinion that after the first few days there will not he any considerable amount of bonds ofiered to the government. But tbe moral effect of the circular, it is believed, will be as good as known that the govern ment stands ready to purchase fourteen million of bonds and throw that amount of money upon the market, which will, they say, tend to reassure timid financiers.

Rescue of tbe Missing Sailor Vincrnt San Francisco, September 24—Full details have been received here of the res cue of a saiior named Vincent, who is the only survivor of the whaling hark Na poleon, lost in the Arctic seas three years ago. The rescue of Vincent was effected by the United States revenue ship Bear, as related in former dispatches in an Indian village near Cape Navarin. Vin cent was in a deplorable condition when rescued. The miserable Indian clothing which partially covered him, was tied upon his body in order to keep it from falling off', and his head was shaved in the Indian style. "When properly clothed and nour ished the unfortunate man was able to give a history of his terrible sufferings. When the whaling bark Napoleon, of which he was one of the crew, was crashed in the ice, all hands took to the boats without procuring provisions of any de scription. »Soon after leaving the bark the boats became separated, the one in which Vincent was aDd another going together. Each of these boats contained nine men, who were sometimes on the ice and some times in the boats for many days. During this time their food consisted solely of two small captured seals and the leather ot their boots. Tbe weather was bitterly cold, and their hands, feet, ears and noses became frozen and dropped off'. When the boats finally reached shore only five of the eighteen men composing their crews remained. Of these Vincent was the only one who was able to walk. Two of the men who landed died shortly after goiDg ashore, and the natives reported that of these two men the surviving one ate the flesh off' the body of his dead comrade. Vincent, the mate and one sailor then alone remained. The two latter succumbed to death the first winter, and Vincent was left among the natives. He had lived with the Indians lor two years, and when at last succored by Captain Healy he was a most pitiable spectacle of humananity. CHINESE CELEBRATION. Street Parade in Honor of a Great Idol. San Francisco, September 23.—The Chinese residents of this city had a re markable street parade in honor ol a great idol known as " Tan Wong," recently brought from China. The parade was one of Oriental magnificence, but was confined to the streets and alleys in Chinatown. The costumes, banners and Oriental wea pons incident to the parade were brought from China especially for this occasion. There were 1,000 Chinamen in line, and numerous Chinese women, on richly capari soned horses, the entire column presenting a blaze of color. The women wore loDg silken gowns, and at their side walked at tendants. holding high over their heads banners of gold. The men iu the proces sion carried antique war implements, loDg gilt maces, elaborately carved, swords or spears, around whose points were coiled gilt lizards, snakes and flamiDg dragons. A number of tall banners, which sprang twenty feet in the air, preceded another heavily armed battalion, attired in the brightest yellow, and carrying weapons no j two of which were alike. Immediately preceding the mighty Joss, Ten Wong, was a band of musicians sounding huge gongs and kettle drums, while a body of cannoneers followed, keep ing up a constant fusilade of fire crackers. Twelve worshipers, clad in light yellow, carried Tan Wong, who sat in a huge chair. About him and behind him trod a warden of priests in loDg, black satin robes, that touched the ground. They were ac companied by incense bearers, w hose cen sers were huDg from the ends of long, red poles. Following Tan WoDg was a dragon one hundred and seventy-five feet long, and described as the most gorgeous ever seen in America. He was supported by sixty worshippers. This monster opened its mouth, writhed its body, and by appliances known only to the Chinese, kept up a gen eral outward appearance of being possess ed of life and as though desiring to devour the spectators viewing it. The idol will be placed in the Jass house to day to be worshipped. President Cleveland's Tour.

San Francisco, September 25.—A spe cial to the Examiner from Tucson, Arizona, says: The most intense excitement pre vails in Ihis city over the reported outbreak of the San Carlos Apache Indians. A cour ier arrived at Pantaneat noon to day, noti fying all '.lie settlers in tbe valley that two bands had left the reservation and were marching south. This is supposed to be Ihe result of the killing of Horton, the post trader, who was murdered by the Indians yesterday, and intense excitement prevails aloDg the valley. The outbreak bids fair to be of a very serious character. Already two bands are reported to he out, and if such is the case the destruction oflife and property will be great. The Fskiminzins band will most surely join forces with the San Carlos Apaches, and make a force of nearly two hundred well armed and equipped hostiles. No news has been received either at Benson or Wilcox. Many do not believe that the outbreak is as big as reported, but dread any kind. Messengers have been sent in all directions to notify the people to gather all their stock, and the wildest rumors are in circulation, none of which can be traced to a reliable foundation. The people around Florence are in a great state of excitement, fearing an outbreak there. Nogales, Arizona, September 24.—Pri vate telegrams received here state that the major portion of the Indians on the »San Carlos reservation have gone on the war path. The cause of the outbreak is not known. So far no one has been killed, but the depredations on stock ranches have resulted in much loss, and their trepidity outrivals past exploits. The troops in camp north of town have been ordered to prepare to march, and are to-night standing on arms. Business is al most entirely suspended, and the streets are filled with people discussing affairs. San Francisco, Septmber 25.—Tele grams from Arizona with reference to the reported outbreak are conflicting. The latest advices, however, state that the report of an outbreak is without foundation. Denver, September 26.—A telegram from Santa Fe, New Mexico, to the Asso ciaied Press says: The reported Apache outbreak in Arizona is not confirmed at the military headquarters here. On the contrary, everything is reported quiet on the southwestern Indian reservation. Washington, September 26.—The War Department has been aware far some time of the threatened trouble on the »San Car los Indian reservation. The trouble ap pears to be similar to tbe Colorow uprising, from attempts by Territorial officers to en force a civil process on Indians. In the present case, the War Department is in lormed, a constable with forty deputies is endeavoring to serve a process, and it is be lieved at the department that any attempt to arrest tbe Indians will result in a gen eral stampede. A telegram has been received at the War Department from San Carlos, dated Sep tember 23d, stating that Mr. Horton, an Indian trader, was shot by an Indian scout, who was afterwards pursued by Lieutenant Elliott, Chief of Scouts Porter aud some assistant scouts. A scout was also shot. Teaching in ludian Schools. Washington, September 22.— In a let ter to Gen. Clinton B. Fiske the Commis sioner of Indian Affairs says the Indian bureau does not intend to recede from its position, that no language hut the English shall be taught in Indian schools, notwith standing the opposition manifested against the order. Tbe letter states that the order does not forbid the teaching of scriptural or other truths to adult Indians in their native tongue, but simply forbids teaching or reading of the vernacular to Indians in the schools. The Commissioner says: "I am thoroughly convinced that an Indian cannot become useful and civilized unless he is educated iu the Eugiish language. If the Indian is ever to become a citizeD, as the laml in severalty act contemplates, he must know our language, constitution, laws and people." Pacific Mail Directors. New York, »September 26.—The World will publish to morrow an interview with Edward Lautenbach, one of the directors of the Pacific Mail steamship Co , in which he says that Henry Hart, who in May last secured a majority in the board and was elected president, will resign his position soon ; that two of his adherents in the board will also step down and out, and that C. P. Huntington and either J. B. Houston or Jay Gould himself will he elected in their stead, thus giving Jay Gould and his friends control.

The World gives this as the reason for the sad den rise in Pacific Mail to-day,after having been depressed nearly twenty per cent, during the last few months in the face of heavy business and increased earnings.

Over Half a Million Dollars Lost. New Haven, Conn., September 22.—The failure, which was at first announced as a mere temporary suspension, has proven to be one of the worst that has happened in this section lor years, and the impression is spreading that the creditors will realize but little on their paper. One of the most peculiar features of the failure has been the extraordinary secrecy maintained,both by Wheeler and the local banks which are such heavy losers. The rumors floating around are to the effect that Wheeler's al leged branch stores were merely figureheads through which to raise money. The local banks hold over half a million of Wheeler's paper, and it is thought to be nearly a total loss. Wheeler's social standing was very high and he was prominent in the church and Sunday school. A number of addi tional warrants, it is expected will be is sued against him at once. The arrest was caused by the Phœenix Bank, of Hartford, which discounted a note for Wheeler two days before the fail ure. The prisoner was taken to Hartford where he was arraigned and the case con tinued, Wheeler being held in $500 bonds, which were furnished. Convicted and Sentenced. Cork, September 24.—The trial of Wm. O'Brien under the coercion act was con cluded to-day at Mitcbellstown. The ac cused was declared guilty and sentenced to three months' imprisonment. No notice of appeal from the judgment of the court was given. O'BrieD, in his speech of de fense, said the crown was guilty of having suppressed evidence favorable to him.

In these notes, he said, was recorded his statement that the Irish party would give the land bill fair play. Continuing, O'Brien justified the Kingston tenants on the ground that the evictions against them were commenced just on the eve of the passage of the land bill, and thus the attempt was made to defraud the poor tenants of the benefits the measure. He admitted that he had advised the tenants not to give up without resistance, and that he bad declared that before God and man they were justified in defending their homes. Cork, September 24.—Immediately after sentence had been pronounced against O'Brien on the first charge he was placed on trial on the second charge. This was of the .same nature as the others. Upon this he was also found guilty and sentenc ed to three months imprisonment. O'Brien appealed from lioth judgments and was liberated on bail. Jno. Mandeville, chairman of the Board of Poor Law Guardian''* of Mitcbellstown, who was jointly indicted with O'Brien for using seditions language in a speech made on the same occasion, was also convicted and sentenced to two months imprison ment.
