PICKED UP—UNCONSCIOUS FROM STARVA TION—ON A TREE IN THE MISSISSIP PI. St. Louis, September 2. —Last Thursday morning, five miles below Chester, on the Illinois shore of the Mississippi river, and sixty miles below St. Louis, a boy about seven years of age was found In the river, floating on the trunk of a huge cottonwood tree, and from the evidence attainable at present It appears certain that the little fel low had been In this position five or six days without food. The little fellow was lying In a kind of hollow en which bad formed In the trunk. He was unconscious and In a high state of fever, while his wasted form and emaciated appearance bespoke long abstinence from food. The men who found him lifted him Into the skiff, rowed ashore and carried him to a farmhouse, and medical assistance was called In. The boy remained for twenty-four hours In a comatose condition, but yesterday he began to give signs of consciousness. He is still unable to converse, so that It Is not known who he Is or where he comes from, or how he came into auch a perilous posi tion. The presumption is that the boy must have drifted on the trunk from some point near the mouth ot the Missouri river, ven turing upon the trunk while It was lying close to the banks, and by some means it became detached and was carried down the stream by the current. Tbe trunk, for tunately, was admirably fitted for a resting place, as It was gnarled and hollow centres were formed In it. Had It not been so he must Inevitably have met with a watery grave. The little fellow must at least have bees the trunk for five or six days, drifting 100 miles, during which time he, of course, had no inatenance. The men who took him off the tree said that io oae place the bark appeared gnawed, which would indicate that the lad, to appease the pangs of hunger, actually nibbled and gnawed at the tree. on RAILWAY ENTERPRISE IN NEW FOUNDLAND. The Newfoundland government has ad dressed a circular to a number of prominent American contractors inviting their atten tion to a movement which is on foot looking to the construction of a railroad across the island fro m St. John's to St. George's bay, some other convenient point on the west coast. The Legislative Assembly of New. foundland has resolved to vote an annual subsidy of $120,000 to any Individual or company which will take the matter in band, besides granting liberal concessions of crown lands for the purpose. The com pletion of the proposed line would have the effect of opening up enormous deposits of copper, iron, coal, nickel, lead and other minerals, which are now almose Inaccessi ble, while it would also cut through th# great pine and spruce forests of tbe in terior, which are also at present utterly useless. The construction of the r» ilroad would shorten the ocean voyage by one thousand miles. or the u. re to U Oft ) I r raud Rebuked. THE ELECTION FOR MAYOR. ALLMOND THE SUCCESS FUL CANDIDATE. * Majority of Over 600 A GAIN IN ALL WARDS AND A DEMOCRATIC COUNCIL. Right and justice triumphed yesterday. The people of Wilmington may well be congratulated upon their uprising to a true conception of the wants of their munlclp alty. Allmond, the successful and upright merchant, who so worthily has performed his duty as a citizen, la called to the Mayoralty Uy over elx hundred majority of tbe votes cast at the election. This is a good day's work as It rebukes the aesutap. tlon of political unfitness, and seals the stamp of condemnation upon corruption and trickery. We have carried Councils so overwhelm ingly that It throws upon us the entire re sponsibility of the city government. Let ua at this time, In the midst of our triumph, resolve to practice the moat rigid economy in the administration of our municipal affairs. Thus we will satisfy the expets tlons of the people, and deserve the confi dence given to us, by the votes of our citizens. at of of he is it he of the SCENES AND INCIDENTS. The day passed off very quietly, and no serious rows occurred. Iu a number of the wards a good bit of feeling prevailed and a lively time was experienced, especially In the first, Second, Fifth, Eighth and Ninth wards. In the Fifth ward shortly after the polls opened, a young man named Barney McVey. residing on Windsor street, went up and offered his vote, but It was reftised by Thomas W. Savllle. Constable Pritch ett insisted upon the vote being taken, but Savllle savagely refused to do so, and finally upon being pressed struck Mr. Pritchett and the two men clinched. They were forced apart by friends, but Savllle was dissatisfied and drew a revolver in his rage, threatening to blow a hole through his opponent, but peace was at length re stored. ..... Just before the Ninth ward polls closed a crowd of some seventy-five or eighty ne» grocs came up, and threatening to take possession, behaved In a very disorderly manner. Word was at once sent to the police station, and as there were no police men about, Chief O'Toole drove over, but the Begroes having got wind of word being sent for aid, had dispersed before he ar rived. At Fifth and Spruce street, the eastern precinct of the Fourth ward, a ripple of ex citement was created at about 5.30 o'clock, when a man came up to vote and had his vote challenged by John Gallagher, who had been very drunk and quite abusive all afternoon, and the man struck him. Gal lagher then turned to officer Traynor and ordered him to arrest the man, and imme diately caught the officer by tbe collar and commenced hauling him around the street. Officer Traynor not being used te such things of course did not enjoy It, and finally settled the festive John with a smart blow In the eye. In the evening the colored iolks had a warm contest In the western Precinct of the Fifth ward by Jack Boston and Peter Blake getting together and mopping up the gutter with each other by turns. WHERE THE GAIN LAYS. The result gives * sweeping Democratic victory throughout the whole city. The vote exceeds that cast at the last mayoralty by a hundred votes, and tbe Democratic gain since then In the election foi Mayor is In the neighborhood of 540 votes. Of the ten candidates for council, which were voted lor, six of the Democrats were elected, viz: Mr. Huestsi in the First ward, Mr. Town send in the Second, Mr. McGllnchey In the Third, Mr. Hart In the Fourth, Mr. Rowe In the Ninth and Mr. Lynch In the Tenth. Of the holding over members, six are Democrats and four are Republicans. Of the new members six are Democrats and four are Republicans, which will only give the Republicans nine members counting the President, and the Democrats twelve, or majority of three. By 9:30 o'clock the result became sufficiently known to enable a fair idea that the Republicans had auffered an Igno minious defeat, and the water department which had presented an animated scene the early part oi the evening gradually grew silent and desisted, and the brave Captain and bis company threw down their arms and dispersed to their homes as the truth gradually forced itself upon their minds. Not so with the Democratic head quarters, in the Friendship engine house ad the bay, or in the of th# in one a ■fff* where the wildest enthusiasm prevailed which grew more and more Intense as the returns continued to come In, which made the success more assured. At length, when all the returns were In a band was engaged and a number of the successful candidates were visited. The flrst of whom called on was Mr. Allmond who responded to the serenade 10 a very pleasant and happy From 10 o'clock till after midnight the wildest demonstrations of joy were preva lent all through the city, ben«fires were kindled In-' all parts of town and sent up their lurid blaze: people shouted and hurrahed in the fullness of their satisfac tion and while many of the defeated Re publlcaas slunk quietly home, many were quite willing to give In and join In with the expression of satisfaction.

The "bad blood" Induced by a persistent violation of Na ture's great hut simple laws requires not only coolness and judgment, but obedience to hygienic measures and tbe proper use of Dr. Bull's Blood Mixture to Insure Its purli Beat Ion. !
