Rilatits to the Alabama iudemnity the New York Express says: The Ala bama iudemnity money, $15,500,000 gold, due from Great Britain on Septem ber Gth, has already been paid into the Treasury, with the exception of about $j,000,000, which is deposited in gold in a number of our city banks. The pay ments thus far to the Treasury have beea in called bonds, over-due coupons and gold. The balance due will be gradually paid in during the next three weeks, and within this time the Man agers of this fund expect to purchase on additional amount of called bonds. Tub explosion of the bailers on board the steamer George C. Wolff calls for a thorough inveittigation as to the causes, which investigation should place the re sponsibility where of right it belongs. The usual verdict, " nobody to blame," is losing its respectubility, and people begin to suspect that there is always somebody to blame when a steamboat explosion occurs. This wholesale hurl ing of people into eternity is a crime ' that calls for some investigation. The meeting this afternoon of the Narrow-Gauge Convention Committee at the Chamber of Commerce should be largely attended by our public-spirited citizens wbo feel an interest in the Selma railroad project and other matters of general interest. Most important questions will be submitted and dis cussed with reference to the action of the Couuty Court in refusing to order an issuance of the Selma railroad scrip.

The low, driving scud overhead is swept along ceaselessly in formless muikiness; huge masses of foam, churned npin the recesses of tbe rocks, are torn up by the fierce blasts of the wind and whirled wildly through the air, smiting agaiist the lace of the cliffs and the green banks above, which are flecked with white as from the remains of a snow storm. The black, rocky coast line to the south, until it is lost in a sustained confuuion of surging spray and cloud, si-ems dwarfed under llie snow white columns that are hurled up from its base, the summits of which, struck by the level wind above, stream fur inland, a rneged curtain of spray, while the beavii.g masses thunder down at;ain in a thousand cataracts. The nearer piers, with their lofty staging, are buried under the waves, which leap a hundred feet n'mve them as in sudden surprise and wrath at their premature arrest. Out at sea, as far as the eye can penetrate, all is a scene of wild and tumultuous commotion, multitudinous as the waving tops of forest trees, but incomparably more violent, no succes sion or common motion can be observed, waves leap above waves against the low ering clouds, to fall back, burst and Lf fled, until nearing the shore, they seem to marshal themselves for assault, and rushing on in swift succeed ing lines, rear up their turbid might, bounding, quivering, coiling, until they precipitate themselves into the gulf which foreruns them, or are hurled unbroken against the rinks. Sometimes, before the break of such a storm, the sun darts out f ir a moment, and all the countless features of the scene, before obscured in gloom and in distinctness, stand out sharp sad clear as liV a supernatural revelation; or, at night, when the lower rack has been swept away, and the upper clou-is have Ein piled themselves into mas.es, the 1 1 1 1 1 m i n fwiur Jnv.
