The East. A laboe and important meeting of promi nent New York merchants was beld in tbat city, last week, to discuss the question of " chcr transportation." The resolutions adopted begin with the organization of an sociation to be known as the New York Cheap Transportation Association. After alluding to the rapid increase of the agricultural and manu factured produce of the country, the resolu tions set lorta that tne policy 01 we govern ment should be to protect the producing inter est and commerce from corporations aud mo nopolies, which tend to subvert the rights of the people. Double-track railways, exclusively for freight, are pronounced absolutely neces sary, and reform in the management of rail ways is demanded. The frequent and arbitrary changes m xroiKnt rates are denounced ana uniform rates demanded. A resolution was ' also adopted sympathizing with the producers V and merchants of the West in their movement ' to obtain cheaper transportation, and pledging hearty co-operation in all just and reasonable efforts to that end The most remarkable sale of short-horn cattle ever made in this country or Europe took place at Utica. N. Y.. on the 10th iust. The prices paid were enormous. One hundred and eleven head of cattle, comprising the celo- brated New York Mills herd, the property of tne Hon. eamuel Uampoell, were sold at auc tion for an aggregate sum of $380,890. The Eighth DucueHS of Geneva brought the start ling price of $40,600. The Tenth Duchess of . Geneva sold for $35,000, and $30,600 was given for the First DucheHS of Oneida. The average price paid for ten of the Duchess tribe was $21,700 each. This herd was beyond question the most valuable ever got together, and its sale attracted fancy stock-breeders from every part of this country as well as from Europe. The three highest prices were paid by Englishmen. ....Animportantfemale witness in the Blokes . case has been arrested in New York.

The case seems to have been mismanaged, or the position of the Union Pacific lailroad not thoroughly appreci ated by the Government counsel, and it is doubtful whether Congress by further legisla tion can change the situation. It was not contemplated by the Attorney-General that the Union Pacifio Bailroad Company would take part in the defense, although to cover some possible contingencies it was mentioned in the bill, but the death of Horace F. Clarke, the President of the Company, who had agreed that it should remain neutral in the suit, worked a complete change in the aspect of the case. Some of tho leading stockholders of tho road who were in the ring, unrestrained by the late President's influence, and fully ap preciating the value of the movement, have forced the road into making common cause against the Government with tho other de fendants, and it will thus be seen that the Government has Uttle or no chance of gaining anything."

Loss of the Propeller Ironsides off Grand Haven, Mich.—Upward of Twenty Lives Lost. [Grand Haven (Sept. 15) Dispatch to Chicago Tribune.] une.j The steamer Ironsides, of the Eugleman line, one of the largest steamers on the lakes, fonndered and sunk when seven miles off this port, at noon to-day. Her signal of distress was hoisted at 9 o'clock this morning, but so terrible was the heavy sea and high wind that no assistance could possibly reach her. She labored in the troughs of the sea from 7:30 in the morning till the time she sunk. The pas sengers and crew of whom there were nine teen of the former and thirty of the latter manned the lifeboats and left the steamer about 11 a. m., the last boat leaving her at 11:50 a. m. When the last boat had got about a quarter of a mile from her, she went down. There were nve boats hlled with the crew and passengers. One of the boats, having five men and four women on board, capsized, and only one man reached the shore. Four boats have reached the shore up to 11 p. m. The boat with Capt. Sweetman, hia wife, and five passengors has not yet beon heard from ; it is feared they are among the lost. Thirty- two persons are known to nave been saved. Fourteen bodies have been recovered. The Ironsides was in plain sight of the har bor until she went to the bottom. Senator Ferry was one of the first to discover her sig nal of distress, about 10 o'clock, but it was too late ; even then there was no boat here which could ride the terrible sea to carry relief. The propeller Lake Breeze bravely undertook tho tusk, but was herself disabled before getting half a mile out of the harbor. The following is the statement of the Ironsides' clerk, Mr. N.!E. Watkins : " We left Milwaukee at 9:10 last night with U1UI.?U I.D.OUg.lD C.UU E . 1 .uu ... V. and were due in Grand Haven between 5 and 6 this morning. The cargo consisted of 13,000 bushels of wheat, 500 barrels of flour, 125 barrels of pork, and some miscellaneous ar ticles. This was a very light cargo, since the boat could carry 1,100 tons. A moderate breeze was blowing from the southwest, which constantly increaseduntil it became a terrific gale before daylight, i did not get up until 9 o'clock, when the boat was rolling fearfully. I immediately went below and found the men working at the pumps. The water had al ready put out the fires, and the engines were useless. 1 then went to tne omce and got the prssenger register, monoy, and manifest, aud went on tne hurricane deck, where 1 round Capt. Sweetman getting tho foresail on. He was thoroughly self-possessed, and the men obeyed orders promptly. We then made about three miles toward the shore. The signal of distress,had been raised at 9:30. About 10 o'clock the p assengers all put on life-pre servers, for it was evident the boat must go down. At 11:20 the Captain ordered the boats to be manned. In the. first boat all the lady passengers, except one, were placed ; in the second boat were ten or twelve of the passen gers and crew. I took charge of the third boat. whicli carried seven paeBongerB. including one lady, and two of the crew besides myself, all of whom were saved. After I had pushed off, saw two other boats leave tho wreck, in one of which I BupiK)8ed the Captain to be. My boat was hardly half a mile from the Ironsides when she sank, stern foremost, about five miles from the shore. It was ten minutes past 12 when Bhe disappeared. She was estimated be worth about $115,000 ; was thoroughly overhauled last winter, and was considered one of the staunchest boats on the lake." statement of a passenoeb. Mr. F. N. Eiplov. of Lowell, Mass.. a very intelligent young man, who was one of the saved, gives tne loiiowing &u national particu lars i "Tho sea became so rough a little after midnight that I could net lp, though ao. customed to tho water. Before daylight the boat rolled bo desperately that every movable thing was smashing about the vessel, and it was impossible to cross the cabin. It was be tween 7 and 8 o'clock when we came in Bight of the harbor, and it was so rough that it seemed unwise to attempt an entrance. We could see the light-houses and the vessels on the beach, and wondered that no one came to our relief. "It was a Bad sight. The passengers stood in silence, with their life-preservers on, knowing that in a few moments they would all bo at the mercy of the breakers. Bnt all were calm and self-possessed. Capt. Sweetman behaved with the utmost coolness and courage, and the crew obeyed every order readily. We were all washed out of the boat in which I was E laced, when within thirty rods of the shore, ut were rescued by those on the beach in a most gallant way. I was picked up uncon scious, but am all right now. The Captain said it was the roughest sea he had ever seen on the lakes." Those familiar with the shore say that the Ironsides went down in not less than forty fathoms of water." The Chicago Exposition. Of skilled industry, to open September 25, attracts universal attention, prom ises to be tVe best exhibition ever seen in the West, and will doubtless be visited by thousands anxious to see the new Chicago. They will find the great millinery store of D. B. Fisk & Co., corner of Wabash avenue and Washing ton street, for size, perfect arrangement, beauty and splendor ; and its exposition of millinery goods, feathers and flowers, velvets and ribbons, silks and laces, for extent, variety, richness and complete ness, surpassing anything of the kind in Chicago or the world. Jlarper's Bazar, of New York, the organ of fashion and art, regarded it as so noteworthy as a temple of business and art, and so typi cal of the sudden resurrection of a great city and the marvelous development of trade in the West, that it gave its read ers a whole page of engraving and letter-press descriptive of the building and its contents, as the best illustration of the wonderful rebuilding of Chicago and the irrepressible energy, activity and enterprise of her business men. None who visit the Chicago Exposition should- fail to see the new miilinery house of D. B. Fisk & Co. Try It. A Tonic and Alterative medi cine, the invigorating and regulating properties of which actually lengthen life, and add to the capacity for its en joyment, is within the reach of every member of the community. No invalid who has had recourse to Dr. Walker's Vinegar Bitters will hesitate to concede to it these invaluable qualities. It is a stomachic and a corrective of unrivaled efficacy, yet being free from alcohol, it is not an excitant. Its anti-bilious operation is more direct, speedy, and certain than that of any of the danger ous mineral salivants,and as an aperient, it gently removes any obstructions that may have accumulated in the lower in testine, without producing either irrita tion or pain. ' In fact, its wonderful remedial effects are unaccompanied by any drawback. Of all medicines, it is the most harmless and salubrious. As an appetizer, it is far ahead of any of the alcoholic nostrums that momenta rily stimulate the palate ; while as a means of renovating a weak and torpid stomach, it stands alone among modern remedies. 8 There is as much difference between self-conceit and self-respect as there is between selfish men and men who sell fish.

For Loss of Appetite, Dyspepsia, In digestion; Depression of Spirits, and General Debility, in their various forms, Ferko-Phos-fhobated Elixir ot Calisaya, made by Cas well, Hazard fc Co., New York, and sold by all druggists, is the best tonic.

From the system that has been Invigorated and regulated by a course of that most beneficent of all vegetable elixirs, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters Such, at least, is the inference we are compelled to draw from the testimony of thousands of per sons residing in unhealthy districts, who at tribute their escape from the epidemic and other complaints which prevail there In the spring and autumn solely to the me of this great protec tive and preventive medicine. Many Western and Southern farmers and planters, as invaria bly as they sow and plant in the spring and reap and gather in the fall, administer it at those sea sons to their families and employes, and take it themselveB from twice to three times a day. The demand for it in the fever and ague districts bor dering on the Mississippi, Ohio and Arkansas rivers is immense; and wherever the natural con ditions are such as to generate intermittent or re mittent fevers. It Is held in the highest esteem both as an antidote to the atmospheric virus which provokes them, and as a swift and certain remedy for those distressing forms of disease. Itis'almost unnecessary to say that this renowned tonic and renovater is now generally accepted as a standard specific.for Indigestion, biliousness, nervous dis temper, rheumatism, physical weakness and men tal despondency, net only by the public at- large, but by all unprejudiced medical men. The vast popularity of the Bitters has of course led to many counterfeits and imitations, against which the community are requested to be on their guard.

Great excitement prevails in the Chinese city of Shanghae, consequent npon the supposed discovery o a miraculous fountain of blood, which spouts out from the wall npon the per sons of all who come near it. The scene of the miracle is in a bath-house at tached to a tea-shop near the north gate, and the first who discovered it was a coolie, who immediately gave the alarm, whereupon three more coolies rushed in and were soon covered with blood. The rumored miracle drew anx ious crowds of curious and unwashed to the Tipaou, who, after due examination, called on the Chehsien for assistance. A detachment of three officials was at once sent off to guard the door of the miraculous bath and keep intruders aloof. A Chinese gentleman states that it really is a blood fountain, which means innumerable things to those who can read these miracles aright, and that most careful examinations have been made of the wall on all sides but the in ner, which is considered too sacred for investigation. The highest mountain on the North American continent is Mount St. Elias, in Alaska, whose elevation is 17,900 feet. Next to it comes the volcano of Popocatapetl, in Mexico, 17,884 feet, and Orizaba, also in Mexico, 17,373 feet. If the newly discovered peak of the Holy cross, in the Yellowstone re gion, found by the Hayden exploring party, be really 17,000 feet high, as they estimate, it will be the fourth peak in elevation on the continent of North America, and the highest mountain in tha United States, excluding Alaska. Heretofore the highest peak in this country was supposed to be Big Horn mountain, which is elevated 15,000 feet.

Walker's California Vin egar Bitters are a purely Vegetable preparation, made chiefly from tbe na tive berbs fonnd on tbo lower ranges of the Sierra Nevada mountains of Califor nia, tbe medicinal properties of which are extracted therefrom without the use of Alcohol. Tho question is almost daily asked. 'What i3 tho cause of tho unparalleled success of Vixegab Bit tebs f " Our answer is, tbat they remove the cause of rliseaso, and the patient re covers his health. They are the great blood purifier and a life-giving principle, a perfect Kenovator and Invigorator of the system. Never before in the history of tho world has a medicine been compounded possessing the remarkable dualities of Vinegar Bitters in healing the sick of every disease man is heir to. They are a gentle Purgative as 'well as a Tonic, relieving Congcstiea or Inflammation of the liver ana Visceral Organs, in Bilion X)lS6ftS6S The properties of Dr. Wilkeb's Vinegar Bittebs are Aperient, Diaphoretic, Carminative, Nutritions, Laxative, Diuretic, Sedative, Counter-irritant, Sudorific, Altera tive, and Anti-Bilio'" Grateful Thousands proclaim Vnr Egar Bitters the most wonderful In-vigorant- that ever sustained the sinking system. No Person can take these Bitters according to directions, and remain long unwell, provided their bones are not de stroyed by mineral poison or other mean';, and vital organs wasted beyond rep&'.r. Bilious, Remittent and Inter mittent Fevers, which are so preva lent in tho valleys of our great rivers throughout the United States, especially those of the Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, Cumberland, Arkan sas, Ked, Colorado, Brazos, Rio Grande, . Pearl, Alabama, Mobile, Savannah, Ro anoke, James, and many others, with their vast tributaries, throughout our entire country during the Summer and Autumn, and remarkably so during sea sons of unusual heat and dryness, are invariably accompanied by extensive de rangements of the stomach and liver, and other abdominal viscera. In their treatment, a purgative, exerting a pow erful influence upon theso various or gans, is essentially necessary. Thero is no cathartic for the purpose equal to Dr. J. Walkee's Vinegar BirrERf:, as they will speedily remove tho dark colored viscid matter with which tbo bowels are loaded, at tho same time stimulating tbe secretions of tbe live,-, and generally restoring the healthy functions of the digestive organs. Fortify the body against discaso by purifying all its fluids with Vinegar Bitters. No epidemic can take hold of a system thus fore-armed. Dyspepsia or Indigestion, Head ache, Pain in tho Shoulders, Coughs, Tightness of the Chest, Dizziness, Sour . Eructations of the Stomach, Bad Taste in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpita tation of the Heart, Inflammation of the Lungs, Pain in the region of tho Kid neys, and a hundred other painful symp toms, are the offsprings of Dyspepsia.

For Inflammatory and Chronic Rheumatism, Gout, Bilious, Remit tent and Intermittent Fevers, Diseases of the Blood, Liver, Kidneys and Bladder, these Bitters have no equal.
