D)avitt's Return to lEurope.
Michael Davitt went to the Granw ('en
tral Hot1el from the Everett House ve-ter
day, and took up his quarters under the
name of Davis. ?ie said last night that ihe
was obliged to taupe this step to secure the
needed rest, to 'vade the overwheh ..in
attentions of his fliends. :and to prepare for
his dep:arture at 5 1z. im. to-day in the steam
sh i Pennia.ndl for Ant.mwerp.- He said that
eten the manner o his (delartute' tidt been
kept qiefet, i).eau,; some of hits fWrt i.l in
sisted on having a eftt;tati (I hecpemaittanv
hirm dw, the h..y, and he did not ., .:i to

pense. lie had no 7 0rsonal \-ant toga
ify in tihe mtlv, .id preferred thiat ail
the money shaou(t b l Isaved for tihe cause of
i eland.
As to the retsults of his tour in this coun
try, he said that his imiost sanguine expee
tations ihad beeu re'alized. The peenniary
returns had beetn fi"r above his expect a
tions; but, more thiri: that, he va luedt the
protress m-ade in Jhe uniniction of the
SLanid .eague and tihe se.tienment of vexed
nes ionst, He btlicved tirit -the cordial
co-operation of ali the leaders was assured,
and that the prospects of freedom for Ire
land are brigmhter'than ever.
Mr. Davitt spoke of the English comp!i
cation in Egypt as advantageous to Ire
land, not only in drawing off English
troops, but in the embarrassment of the
English.G overnment. He has hopes that
the present: sate of affairs will prove the
overthrow of the Gl.dstaone ministry, atnd,
believing tlait any change in the ETng i-,
ministry will prove the better forI reland,

ifoe the eye couhl follow his movement
Wilson landed a stinging blow on Sulii
van's nose. It seem:ed to astotnish and en
arge the big blacksmith, who rushed upon
his antagonist, literally like a mad bull,
beating down his guard and raining blows
upon him with such velocity that they
could neither be' counted nor followed.
Eleven timies, in rapid succession, Wilson
was knoeked down in this one round. by
blows that battredi his lead, heat upon
his neck, cracked against his shoulnders,
and drove the wind out of his lungs. On
his ten}, faill be came near gooinog through
the ropes t to he loor outside. Not a single
good blow iid.l lie get in in all the round,
and iiih bet he could do Sullivan seemed
to mind no imore thian ifit had.been apuny
cing witlh smiowballs. When the round
ei:led ,;d Wilso was led away to his
,:iier, -ponged and fanned, he had a.daz
di, of.t-ied, and almost horrified look up
on isi fie. as, oine might have who is sud
dently toyed widh and then dropped by a
tornado. 'hl backers of Sullivan were
jubilant, and'the whole crowd, carried
away bey, id itself with the wild rush of
siuc rapid and, terriiie fighting, shouted
and velcd for more than half a minute
continuously. Such blows had never been
seen here liere. Biut severe as they were,
Wilson,. in thle liet minute of rest accord
ed by inhe rules, reovered sufficiently to go
into the next round with his senses all
about him, to begian and adhere to the cun
ning, foxy style of fighting that eventually
won him the tight.
The second round opened with Sullivan
promptly felling "Wilson by a terrific right
hander under the .lefti ear, but Wilson
scrumbled to his feet again-slowly, yet
within the required ten seconds--ouly to
be k'iuciked dowi-by oditer iniseetlaneously
disruibu!ed blows", f1he second, third, fourth
:ard fifth timls. :.. Tite fifth time he fell
heavily a;gaini the ropes and almost
through themil ; got up and was beas ;e
dowli agaii in i3i; own c yorer by some
awful slugging; raised himtself only in
time to meet a cleau left-hander that
knocked him idouirn like a ten-pi u, ad so
on three times more, until it seond roituid
e.d-d, with him on his feet. Again the

tor him in tlhat poition, hie would drop, or
- let himself ie knocked down and occupy
Sall hi full ten seconds in getting up sgain.i
All this was clear gain of time in the three
- imintiliez, anild Sullivan waes now so weary,
-o appareu.tly, thaft Msl blows had scarcely
n anything of force, anil very often lacked
o directness and were spent -upon the air,
4 even when W ilsohn m ade little or no effort
I to dodge them. "OhL isn't lihe foxy ?"
0 "Just look at him!" "Isn't he a daisy ?"
- "You bet he'll last," were the approving
e yells of wild delight from the Wilson ad
n hlerents, white the Sullivan faction howled
, itusel ihearse with fierce injunctions, often
Sac. ecoaled by vigorous profanity, to "go
e in ad finish himi." "You've no time to
i ` ,se, rtc. To tlhoe best informed it was
I a! ready a conspicuous fact that time to lose
, was all the sort of time Sullivan had be
or'e hiim in this business. Still, he made
some ies'erac.te enIdeavors to save his fast
fa ii;! lIuretl. Oif the nine times that he
a kno ecd 'l ilson down in this round, re
ceiviin nio punitihment in return, only
, once did he appear to do real hurt, and that
Swas when he bnt the Englishman down
a' a s'ic esion of heavy blows, t0upon the b~iackd
. of his headi. nppv:rentiy delivc-ed( it thI- i
- heeil a! the hand.- Once, too, Wilson was
nearly kCuioeked through the ropes. Yet 1
every time Wilson's face could be seen
leering over Su i..' . shoulder, or as he
wa sl-:ly iand with pretended dificulty e
riing, ie was s.ilin~g. When the round
endedi lii both imeni panted heavily. i
The fiou rtih round was in all respects like
thle third, only that ouit of the seven times i
tihat Wilson dropped, fell, or was knocked
dion, Sullivan fell on him three times, i
Sod of ithe two men the big blacksmith, at
the latter end of the round, seemed to have 1
most difficulty in rising to his feet.- And (
when the end of the round was called,
Wilson walked jauntily to his corner,
amid a very tempest of ciheering, while i
Suiiivi n lumbnreid slowly and wearily to <
ilis corner, panting for air, like one half ti
One: minte later "time''" was called for 1
M;:e men to comae to the scratch for the in- i

Tihere were no marks on Wilson. lie j

S/aliian rose, and shaking hands with o
Wilson, said : a
"'tg, x-you're asood man. We must v
havec this over again." fi
"All right," said Wilson. t]
Afterw:(rd Sul!ivan said, referring to a
hmis sickness: It
"They told me I could knock hiin out a
easily, and I didn't take any care of my- ii
self." In
Ricihard K. Fox of thie lie Police IGcazetet
Ssid to Sullivan:
"I will match \V ilson against any man
for $5 000-you, yourself, preferred. If
you think well of it, meet me to-morrow
at my oilie'.."
"1'11 be there," replied Sullivan.
After his fight with Paddy Ryan, Sulli
van made so much money by giving exhi
bitions that he accumulated $16,000. Be
fore this he had never been in the habit of
drininking hard liquor. Elated with his
success, it is said, he began to drink con
siderably, and spend his money freely.
It is estimated that the sale of tickets
yielded-between $20,000 and $25,000. They
were.counting the money inthe office at
the Garden late last night.
Harry Hill said in his theatre, after the
fight- "Gentlemen I have to announce
that in the matchi at the Madison Square
Garden to-night, Mr.-Tug Wilson won the
money. . r.. Sullivt 's agreemenit was
that if Mr. Wilson should stand up- to him
for four rounds he should have $1,000-and
half the gate money,, and Wilson did it I
am the same friend of Mr. Sullivan as I
ever was, but he undertook a big thing
when he tried to knock a good man out in
fifteen minutes. Mr. Wilson came up
every time. It was a big task,t aid there
was a tinme when-if I hait had a .tholsand
dollars on Wilson I- would not have{- given
a doiiar for it."--ew- Yor'kSuim, July 18.

- F lSHIN G IN 'THE JORDAN.
A. Sacred RBiver, But a Poor Plnce
to hisih.
1' 3.1 tents, s*s- Y coI1'j ondlcnt in the
i Holy Iand, were pitched aimong the olive
. tree- on the bank of the east br:neil of the
e u lper Jordan, only a few rods below the
mighty spriig at Banias, the ancient C s
Sarea .Philippi. The Jordan rises from v:a
[ rious great springs.in the west and south
, west sides of Mount Hermon. The west
t ern branch, which comes down the gorge
I between THermon and the Lebanon range,
! flo0ws practically southward from its source
' till it comes out on the plain above the wn
ters of Merom. The Banias branch springs
out of the mountain side, at that village,
1 descends the declivity in a torrent, receives
the flow of the great spring of Dan, three
or four miles below, then joins the west
branch, and the river pursues its conrse,
3 widening into Meroim,- and resting again
in the sea of Galilee.
'iThe sun was an hour above the western
hills. So I tookout a light rod and a book
of flies and small spinners, and went up
to the spring where the waters began their
course. What fish might be in the river
and what flies to use I knew not. But it is
Svery cei tin that if there be any game fish
i in the river or lake a judicious use of flies
or spinners will bring" them to hand.
The carniverous opening in the precipi
tons rock of the hill, out of which the
spring once flowed, has crumbled, and the
clear water gushes and bubbles out in
countless little springs among the debris.
Remains of pagan worship are numerous,
for.the Romans, as well as the Greek and
Phoenician predecessors in power, had cul
tivated here the reverence and worship of
the gods of the water, the woods, and the
lower regions.
TuIrning my back on the old myths, I
began to whip the stream where the vari
ous oozings of the fountain gathered in a
somewhat smooth flow for a little while.
'There was a host of small- fish not thriee
Inches long, and at everycast-f would tatke
one or two. But the young descendants of
the sacred fish of olden times were entitled
to respect, and were carefully restored. 1
have always regretted that I made no care
ful notes of the characteristics of the fish I
took in the sea of 'Galilee and in various
parts of the Jordon. I then supposed that

course, lashing itself into millions of spark

There was no place or use of spinner, fly,

Crossing it was impossible. I)own, down,

the glory of such a cataract was worth en

Lebanon, and the night was comning on.
Close by the bank of the stream I came
on a: group of Arabs, six men, surrounding
a small fire of a few stalks of grass and
weeds. They vwelcomed a stranger withi
frank cordiality, and pressed me to share
their evening meal, which they were then
and therq about to eat. It consisted of
tough flat cakes of bread, roasted snails,
and Jordan water. The snails were roast
ing in the ashes-big fat fellows, the shells
nearly two in('hes in diameter. Ronst
snails are not at all to be despised. I had
eaten thein before. 1 ate them with the
Arabs now, and somewhere I have two or
three of those giant shells, kept as-a memo

where, away between the ranges of hills,
the gorge deepened downward, beyond

toward the sea of death. A cold wind
swept down, making the Hermon dews to

A one SiicknI S 'erminted hy a 'a.
tall Stroke o7 aralysisy,
coln, wildo, v the Iate l'reident Lincoln,
died in this city at i o'elo'k to-nig.lt.
She Ihad been ill for a longi time, ::mld a few
days ago grew worse. Last eve.: ig. she
su Fl'eied "a shock of paralysis, an'd 1(inace
that time alay in a comatose state until slte
died. Her son, Robert Lincoln, Secretary
of Wrar, will be here on Tuesday morninrg.
The funeral alnoun emenel t will h, i:made
later.
Mrs. Lincoln was a dlaughter of I r.
Todd, and was born near Louisville, Ky.
She was a woman of extreme good nature,
a devoted wife, and an affectionate mother.
She was l~iown by close friends in early
life as ambitious, but it is probable that
she never dreamed of occupying the White
House until events made that result a pos
sibility. Not a cultivatdd woman, and not
fitted by nature to fill a commanding so
cial position, she drew upon herself while
in Washington the savage criticism of po
litical and other enemies, being in that
respect the most unfortunate of all the
ladies of the White House. It is generally
believed by her friends that her mind was
seriously affleeteliby the assassination of
her husband. She had always been of a
nervous temperament and the terrible
shock consequent upon her husband's
untimely end certainly developed in her
strongly marked symptoms of insanity.
She was litterally weighed down with woe,
and the burden was greatly increased by
t.he death of her youngest son, Ttladdeus,
or "Tad," as he was usually called. She
became possessed of some very peculiar
whimns.r Among others was the idea th:at
she would eventually come to want, and
she could not be shaken in this belief, des
pite the fact that she had about $60,000 and
was entirely free from deht. Another
queer fancy she hlid was for aceumulating
window curtains. While she. was staying
at a hotel in Chicago some years ago, with
out any- idea of ever again living in a house
of her own, she piled up about her room
over sixty pairs of curtains. She would
go out in the morning and order cartloads
of dry goods to be sent to her, and the dce
livery of the merchandise occasioned the
hotel managers and her friends great an
noyance. When it was found that she
persisted in her hallucinations, some of
her relatives had her taken very quietly to
an asylum, iwhere she was kept for a long
time before inquiring friends learned of her
whereabouts. One day a newspaper re
porter obtained an interview with her, and
the mournful story which she told pro
duced somnethirig of a selnsatiOif. ,iidge
and AMrs. Bradwell of Chicago interested
themselves in her behalf, and in the course
of time see(ur(ed her release.
Since her husband's death she has trav
elled a great deal in this country and in
the old world. She has been to Europe
twice, but apparently without benefit to
herself. 1ier life of late lhas been almos
an aimless one, and her frequent journeys,
although undertaken for divertisement,
have not for a moment dispelled the great
shadow which seemed to hang over her.
She returned from Europe the last time on
the same steamer that brought Mille. Bern
hardt to America, and it is related by a
gentleman on board that'Mrs. Lincoln was
much affected, on their arrival in xNew
York harbor, by the attention paid to the
French actress, whilc she, the widow of
a martyr President, was neglected by all
save a very few old and intimate fr*iends.
After resting in New York a snort time
she went to Springliehld, Ill., and there, at
the residence of Mr. Ninian Wg. Edwards,
whose wife is her sister, she passed away.
BURNING OF ALEXANDRIA.
A Large Part of the City Gives up to
the Torch and the Swvord.
LoNDox, July 14.--Despatclies from Al
exandria say that the firing' heard in the
city yesterday was by the marines and
sailors, who were dispersing plunderers
with Gatling guns. The small detach
ment first landed had to wait for re-en
forcements before they were able to push
to the centre of- the town. There was
some short, sharp fighting. No water
could be obtained, owing to the stoppage
of the works. There re ar ome French
ladies among the fugitives rescued yester
day; also the Egyptian Prefect of Police
who sficceeded the instigator of the massa
cre in Alexandria on the 11th of June.
There are not enough sailors and marines
to occupy all the streets of the city. Some
field pieces were landed with the marines
at the Ris-el-Tin fort. The Khedive's
Ras-el-Tin Palace was looted shortly be
fore the marines arrived. A party of blue
jackets landed at Fort Gabarri, and spiked
nineteen guns in position. This morning
the Monarch fired at andt soon destroyed
another battery. The marines Who spiked
the guns found fifteen Armstrong guns of
the newest pattern, some of them disabled.
Beneath one were seven dead bodies. A
body of 150 marineg hold' the Arsenal gate.
At the Custom House gate there are 100
marines, with a Gatling gun, who will re
main all uight. The marines have killed
many looters. A crowd with a-green flag
passed down the principal streets inithe
Arab quarter shouting. The. Airabs were
still looting the- town.
Admiral Seymour had determined to
land a foree to occupy the cityto-day, but
refugees informed; hif thiat 4o000 Egyp
tians occupied a position outside the city
ready for attack, while Admiral Seymour
could only land 300 men ,He, therefore,

The oflicial journal of the government
of the Khedive contains a proclamation
dismissing Arabi Pasha from the Ministry.
Inspector Cadastre, at Ta ltah, speaking
of the massacre, says : 1 saw women caHrry
ing, tki to bludgeons, the dismembered
arms and legs of massacred Europeans.
The soldiers and rlalhe fought for loot. A
Bedouin sheikh, with twenty 1Bedouins,
saved the inhabitants of the Jewish quar
ter and took tlheiii to his village. A not her
sheiklih saved myself and party. Thie mnob
from Alexandria murdered three emriployes
of Casadastre and their families and
burned their bodies with petroleun.
The military authorities are of the opin
ion that Arabi Pasha will not attack the
British. He is, however, stren rtheildgn
his position hourly. At daybreak tiii,
morning his men, many of therm without
uniforms, and driven like slaves, were
working on the i trenchments.
The British experience great dillficulty
in moving their guns, without which it is
impossible to assume the offensive, to Rainm
leh. Directly sufficient heavy guns are
placed in position an attempt will be made
to dislodge Arabi Pasha without exposing
the troops. Guns and gunners from the
fleet are going to the front.
