Washixgtox, January 7. The mys
tery of the recent robbery in the Treas
ury Department of a $12,000 package
consigned to the Illinois National Bank
bids fair to lie completely solved by to
morrow. Strceret service officers and Mr.
Wvnian of tbe Treasury are very re
ticent this evening as to what has been
or what will be done. Mr. Wvman,
however, is authority for the statement
that the greater part of the money has
been recovered. No arrests hare as yet
been made, but by this time to-morrow
evening it is quite certain that the thief
will be in hand. Mr. Fred. S. Winslow,
once President of the Scandinavian
Bank of Chicago, is one of the princip
al men who are suspected, and ia under
close surveillance of the secret service
men. One thing is tolerably certain
that as stated originally in these des
patches the theft was committed in the
cash room, and not after the package
had passed into the hands of the express
company. The manner of conducting
business in the cash room simply places
a 'premium upon theft, and as no man
ha. been punished for any of the nuni
erous thefts that have been made in this
division of the Treasury, it is not pro
bable that a different precedent will be
established in this case, however clear
the evidence that uiav be discovered
within the next twenty-four hours.
Mr. Winslow, the suspected man, is
now bookkeeper in the cash room of the
Treasury Department, and has at times
filled the position of shipping clerk,
particularly during the election, wben
the person regularly filling that position
was absent. His assignment to his pres-
A Cause for tbe Falling Bridge.
Chicago, Jan. 4, 1877.
To the Editor of the Inter-Ocean:
There is one fact that seems to be
overlooked among the possible causes
given for the recent railroad disaster,
and that one is atmospheric pressure.
We are all familiar with the fact that
a storm is announced by a. falling of the
column of mercury in the barometer.
Tbe more severe the storm, the more
rapid and greater the fall. A bridge

Tiio?e who have suffered from the

of what may follow a persistent use of
this remedy. 1 he hard, incrusted mat

show the least strain, but when the
barometer column had fallen three
inches, to 28, might give ray and pre
cipitate the whole into the abyss. Dur
ing severe storms the pressure of the
atmosphere is even greater. Then, if
we take into account the fact that the
wind blows in a circle toward the storm
center we can understand bow the at
mospheric pressure may be very great
at that center. Then, if the storm is a
snow-storm, and passing up a valley, the
weight of the atmosphere must be very
great indeed. Now add to all this the
fact of mo.ving a heavy train directly
against the storm, and we have a scien
tific explanation of the circumstance of
the Astabula bridge falling on that par
ticular night. Under such circum
stances that train should have been divided.

All Explanation of the Aslitahnla Dis
The following statement relating to
the fatal bridge at Ashtabula is so spe
cific that we commend it to the atten
tion of the Coroner's jury. Inquiry
need not be made aa to the source of
this information inquiry should bead
dressed to the facts:
"The fall is no mystery tome. It is
a bridge of Stone', construction on the
Howe truss plan, with east iron braces
instead of wood, and when first put up
would not bear up its own weight, un
til the braces were turned over differ
ently from the plan. Afterward it was
strengthened by suspension rods, but
from the faulty plan the rods would
not do the good they ought to, the strain
from bottom rods being transmitted to
the abutments through the counter
braces instead of posts or main braces."
There is reason to believe the bridge
was, when its importance was taken into
consideration, a moBt shabby structure,
and there ha. been evidence going far
to show that the policy of the railroad
authorities after the accident was to
suppress evidence by consenting to al

San Francisco, January 7. The
drouth continues unbroken. For the
first time since the American settlement,
December passed without a drop of
rain. Yesterday, dispatches from vari
ous parts of the State seemed to indicate
a change of weather.' It has again clear
ed up. Crop reports received from all
quarters indicate that in the extreme
south drouth has already had, to some
extent, a disastrous effect on grain and
feed, and in some parts of San Joaquin
Valley and the lower portion of Sacra
mento Valley, crops are suffering. From
the coast counties, generally, reports are
favorable, and no trouble apprehended
if rain should be delayed JJnntil next
month. In the northern portion of the
State anxiety is felt, but no serious dam
age has yet resulted. Crops in Oregon
are coming forward excellently. Oo the
whole, the present indications are that,
with rains late in the winter, sufficient
grain will be raised for home consump
tion and a small surplus. If rain comes
within a couple of weeks, a fair crop
may be harvested under favorable condi
tions during the rest of the season, but a
large yield can hardly be expected now,

Nye went to Secretary Stanton once
to make a petition for some dead sol
diers' orphans. It was in the darkest
days of the war. Stanton said, "I have
not time, Mr. Nye. to 6ee to what you
want." "Suppose you take time, Mr.
Secretary," said Nye. "You are unrea
sonable, Mr. Nye, in pressing such a
thing at this time," said Stanton. "Per
mit me to say that you are the unreason
ablejman," answered Nye. "If youjwere
not a United States Senator I should
say you were, very impertinent," said
StantoD, haughtily. "If you were not
a great Secretary of War I should be
tempted to say you aremakingadamned
fool of yourself," replied the old Gray
Eagle, with his eyes blazing. Stanton
looked at him a moment, and then, soft
ening, said: ' Maybe 1 am, Jim who
knows come inside and tell me all
about it." "Now, Ned, my boyyou are
growing sensible;" said Nye, and the
business was quickly arranged. Vir

Sclienck's Pulmonic Syrup,
Sea Weed Tonic, and Mandrake
Pills. These deservedly and popular
medicines have effected a revolution in
the healing art, and proved the fallacy
of several maxims which have for many
years obstructed the progress of medical
science. The false supposition that
"Consumption is ineurable" deterred
physicians from attempting to find rem
edies for that disease, and patients at-
nicted with it reconciled themselves to
death without making an effort to escape
from a doom which they supposed to be
unavoidable. It is now proved, howev
er, that Consumption can be cured, and
that it Acts been cured in a very great
number of cases (some of them appar
ently desperate ones) by Schenck's
Pulmonic Syrup alone; and in other
cases bv the same medicine in connec
tion with Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic
and Mandrake i'ills, one or both, ac
cording to the requirements of the case.
Dr. Schenck himself who enjoyed un
interrupted good health for more than
forty years, was supposed at one time to
be at the very gate of death, his phy
sicians having pronounced his case hope
less, and abandoned him to his fate. He
was cured by the aforesaid medicines.
and, since his recovery, many thousands
similarly affected bave used Dr.
Schesck's preparations wilh the same re
Full directions accompany each,mak
ing it not absolutely necessary to person

their lungs examined, and for this pur
pose he is professionally at bis principal

Young Mr. Vandervoort, a pedagogue
fiom (Jul) nee i cut, got uu a Imd scrape
through a clandestine marriage. Ho
wooed and won Miss Addie Johnson of
Long Island Instead of boldly going
to the lady's parents, announcing his de
sire to wed her and demanding lit-r hand
in marriage, he went off and got married
on the sly, without her parents' knowl
edge. Then hegiined ImMnps., and the
conitiia! pair visited Miss Johnson's
parents and told them that they had
linked tli'-m-ielves together f"r life-
Thereupon the mother chastised the
girl, ami the father kicked the pedago
line out ol door. Now, however, the
uarties have become reconcile.!, and all
is again happy in the Johnson house
hold, of which the young people form a
part, and wliera they are enjoying to the
full the bliss of the honevmoon. Still,
that whipping and that kicking will not
bo things tbey will love to linger on in
after life. Never nvirrv a girl secretly
unless her parents are obstinate in their
unreasoning opposition lo the marriage.
Still, when a young man undertakes to
get a wife, and deserves her, we like to
see him go ahead to success.
