lis GOT HOf OS THE WOOL. "Look ft! left nigger, whar you awellin' to!" was the unceremonious salutation of a saddle-colored gentleman to an excruciating ly dressed darkey, whose complexion iras not many shades removed from that of a recently polished stove pipe, as p)9 latter "pusson" made a graceful swing from the promenade on Fourth street where be had been exhibiting himself for a couple of hours, to the envy of the "Bucks," and the fascina tion of a score of "noes gals" in Mc- Alister street.. "Who-oo-o you call nigger, sahT" " Was the indignant response, with a ma jestic roll of a pair of eyes with a great deal of white and a very little of any ether color in them. . "Why, I call you nigger," was the flat-footed reiteration of "saddle color," as he recognized in "store pipe," a "gemman" who, two years ago exer cised his genius about town in the white washing and boot blacking line, but who since mat ume naa Deen "abroad, and had cultirated a mustache and for eifjn airs. ' 'Low me to inform you, sab, dat i-i i i i.i . tuu ib iwnu unaer siigni aeiucinauon, 1 am t no ws&er. "Yes you is a nigger, puffin but a Bigg1"; if you ain't a nierffer, what is you?", "Ise a Quarterroon, sah." "A what?" - "Ise a Quarterroon. sah." "How you Gfit to be a Quadderroom?" "Why my mudder was a white wo man, an my farder was a bpanyid, sab; dat how I git to be a Quarterroon." "Whar you git dat 'plexion?" "I git urn in de Souf, sah, 'feet ob de climate, every pusson in de Souf got 'em' san." - . "Whar you git dat wool? say, whar you git dat wool?" "I git dat by a by a-a-a accidum on my mudders side, sah." (Stovepipe siisntlv confused. ) "Now, how you git dat wool on your mudder's side, if your mudder was a white woman, say bow you git dat wool? ' "Bekase she got frighten afore I was bornd?" "How she git frighten, em?" "Why she git chased by a black man, sah." "Look a hea, nigger, I dussent want to be pusson al. but, from de 'pearance nb your mudder's son, dere ain't no doubt dat de time your mudder was ehased by a black man, she was over tookd." A moment after you might hare played dominoes on the coat tails of the "South'n gemman," as he streaked it up McAlistea street, and dived into the aoor way ot that aristocratic caravansa ry for the accommodation of distin guished sunburnt pussons, known as the Hotel Dumas. Cin. Com. Sivoulik Development. An organ grinder has been arrested in Philadel phia, charged with robbing the dwelling of Mrs. J. B. Smith, sometime since, of $2,000 worth of jewelry. He alleges, in bis defense, that at the time of the robbery a man asked him to go with him to carry some goods, stating that he had just been married to a pretty young lady. He accompanied him, when the man, leaving him on the outside, entered the house of Mrs. S., and bringing out the articles, gave them to him and told him to take them to a good boarding house and he would pay him $2,000. He did so, and was joined by the man and his pretended wife, and remained there for ten days. In the meantime the organ grinder informed the police that the thieves bad gone to New York, whither an officer repaired in company with the informant, but after remaining in that city for several days they gave up the search for them and returned to . PhiladelDhia; on reachin? which the organ grinder joined the thieves and told them how he had deceived the po- j j:ce r Soon' after, the thieves, accompanied their confidant, lea in a wagon, and proceeded to Harrisburg, Cleveland, Al-, bany, fec finally bringing np at Port-1 land, Maine, where they engaged pas-', for Europe. The organ grinder, however, now became anxious about the ?2,000 which had been promised him, and by threatening to inform the , nolice. induced the thieves to give him 8500 in cash and a number of stolen articles, consisting of jewelry, watches, , Ac. He then left the Darties. not. how- ever, before the man gave him a bottle of "medicine," which he recommended him to take, a little at a time, after Philadelphia. This medicine, j which was fortunately not taken, proved j to be strychnine. He reached Philadel-' phia a few days ago, when he was ar- i rested, the articles and money given ; found in his possession, and he was . committed to await further develop- ments. The wheat fields in Wisconsin are reported to be in a fine promising condition. Lost her Little 'Uh.

Swann, so that the chan reaching neI is now free for the passage of boats, - We cannot estimate the inconvenience wn'ch WU be caused to trade and t-avel, and the mail transit by the loss ?f th'8 bridge. It is one of the heav him 'est calamities which has ever fallen on DZSYBDCTIOX OF THS WHSIU3TO SuS- Fshsiob? Eriogx. During the forenoon of yesterday a high storm of wind pre vailed, which, towards noon, increased to" almost a hurricane along the valley of the river, breaking vessels at their moorings, and causing great devasta tion. About 3 o'clock we walked up towards the suspension bridge, and went upon it, intending to walk across' it for pleasure, as we have frequently done, enjoying the cool breeze and the undu lating motion of the bridge. - We dis covered that one of the guys, or small iron cables, extending from the flooring to the wall near the base of the east abutment, was broken from its fasten ings, and several of its stones wrenched apart, About a hundred yards further on, we Baw that one, and only one of me suspenders to which the floor is swung, was broken. These were but slight damages, but as we bad never be fore seen the bridge affected even to this extent by gales, and as it began to sway violently, we thought it prudent to retrace our steps. . We bad been off the flooring only two minutes, and was on the Main street when we saw persons running towards the river bank; we fol lowed just in time to see the whole structure of cables and flooring, heaving and dashing with tremendous force. For a few minutes we watched it with breathless anxiety, lunging like a ship in the storm; at one time it rose to nearly the height of the towers, then fell and twisted and writhed, and was dashed almost bottom upwards. At last there seemed to be a determined twist along the entire span, about one half of the flooring being nearly re versed, and down went the immense structure from its dizzy heighth to the stream below, with an appaling crash and roar. Nearly the entire structure struck the water at the same instant, dashing up an unbroken column of foam across the river, in the heighth of at least forty feetl Amid the confusion of the wreck, we cannot accurately estimate the extent of the damage. All the cables, except two on the north side, are torn from the tower. On the south side, all the cables except one small one, are torn fipro their anchorage in the heavy masonry on Main street, and with such violence were they jerked from this piece of masonry, that one stone weighing about 1500 pounds, was thrown a distance of some feet. The large iron gate at the end of the bridge was shivered to atoms, and the toll-house completely demolished, Mr. James Bell, the toll keeper, making a very narrow escape with his life. On the island at the west end of the bridge, we learn that but one Labfe broke from the anchorage. The entire wood work lies in the river and on the shores. The cables also stretch across the river, sunk to the bottom. So far as we can discover, only two of the cables snapped asunder, and that on the outside of the towers, the rest of the breakage being at their connections with the anchors. We witnessed the terrific scene, and saw that it was brought about by the tremendous violence of the gale. The great body of the flooring and the sus penders, forming something like a basket swung between the towers, was swayed to and fro like the motion of a pendulum. The cables on the south side were finally thrown off the apex of the eastern tower, retaining their posi tion on the tower of the opposite side of the river. This destroyed the equilib rium of the swinging body; and each vibration giving it increased moraem tum, the cables which sustained the whole structure were unable to Tesist a force operating on them in so many dif ferent directions, and were literally twisted and wrenched from their faslen- ln? . The summits of the towers on each hlcb we leave " future investigations lne noonng as it struck the water was broken into three sections, and ex- tended across the river, entirely block adlnS tne channel for a while. Last our city, but we believe the enterprise and public spirit of our citizens will re pair the loss as speedily as any commu nity could possibly do. It is a source of gratulation that no lives were lost by this disaster. We were among the last persons who left the bridge from this side, and although many on both sides were just waiting g upon it, they were fortunately laeierrea. we saw no one noon it when it fell, and bo far as we have learned, one little girl, daughter of Mr. iuKens, on the island, is the only one who was injured, and she not danger- ousiy. one was standing on this side. 1 ,M ..? waiting for the wind, to subside, and was struck by something which braised her arm.

If we can credit -the reports that come thick and fast from Washington, our government, as was predicted, has' become involved serious difficulties with Spain, on ac count of. Cuban difficulties. It seems that our Filibustering Minister at Mad rid, Soule, has gone beyond bis instruc tions in his demands on the Spanish Government. The Cincinnati Enquirer says: It is believed, however, in political circles at Washington, that Soule, in his demands upon the Spanish Court for re dress and indemnity, exceeded bis dele gated powers, and probably has com promised himself; for it is now positive ly affirmed, in the face of denial, that he had demanded peremptorily the recall of the Captain General of Cuba, which de mand had been just as peremptorily refused by the government at Madrid. This places pur Minister in a close corner he can wait for orders from home, or be can ask for his passports. A writer from Washington, to the Hal timore Sun, thinks Soule will not be re quired to ask for such documents, but thinks they will be handed bim, with out asking. Our relations with that power, therefore, are in a most critical position. Our government has taken such a decided stand that it cannot re cede a single step with honor. On the other hand, it is scarcely probable, look' ingattheprominentcharacteristicsof the Spanish people, that such sweeping de mands will be agreed to. They are, in this view of the case, at Washington, treating the matter as a serious thing, and entertaining very grave fears that war will ensue. Pacific Railroad. In the speech made by Gov. Stevens to the people of San Francisco, explaining the results of bis exploration of northern for Puget's sound, he said Gentlemen, we have gained these re sults - from that exploration.
