Jacksonville Fla., April 17.—Judge Toulmin of the United States court, who has been sitting on the bench here for several weeks, left for Mobile yesterday with his wife. The news of the death of O. Z. Tyler spread over the city this morning. As an illustration of what manner of man he was, it is only necessary to point to his career here during the liro yellow fever epidemic, where he with hislife-l'ng friend and pnrtuer. Edward I. Gordon, faced death and disease in all of their ag gravated forms and buried the dead, both white and black, consoled the afflicted and cheered the living by his unflinching courage aud indomitablefortitude. On Sept. 22 las’ , while in the line of battle, his heart’s companion and young and beloved wife fell a victim. Not discouraged by this sad dispensation, ho wiped the burning tears from his face, and went forth doing good among the stricken of the city, for well did he know that he was the only one of the many undertakers left in the city to bury the dead. He retired about 10 o’clock last night with a request to David Gordon, a:i at tache of the undertaking establishment to call him at b o’clock ttiis morning. Mr. GoAion went to his room in the second story of the undertaking building at 5 o’clock, called him, when Mr. Tyler an swered aud said: “i’ll be up directly. It is not yet ti o’clock.” About 7 o’clock this morning Mr. Tyler’s little ctiildre i went into tne room to call him to breakfast and failed to arouse him. The older became alarmed and began to cr . at the indiffer ence of her tether, when Mr. Gordon went in the room and discovered hitn lifeless. Dr. Mitcheil was called and pronounced the cause of (death heart disease, with which Mr. Tyler had been somewhat troubled for years, lie loaves four orphan children, the eldest 9 years and the youngest 9 months old. Mr. Tyler was a brother of TV. L. It., R. R„ J. F„ E M. and F. S. Tyler, and Mrs. M. M. Sheppard, of this city. Deceased being a prominent member of the Odd Fellows and of the Knivhts of Pyl bias, a joint meeting of the two Knights of Pythias lodges of this city was held to night to take proper action upon death, burial, etc. The funeral will take place at 3 o’clock to-morrow afternoon from the undertaking establishment of O, Z.

This afternoon’s issue contained a long list of representative citizens, republicans and democrats, who oppose the bill, and the Metropolis backs up its arguments by giving valuations of over $2,000,000 worth of property that is on the side of the objectors. It shows that a large proportion of the board of trade members oppose it, as do also prominent merchants and business men. The article causes con siderable comment. THE FIGHT AT TALLAHASSEE. Tallahassee, Fla., April 17.—Hon. J. B. Wall, president of the Senate, left this morning for Brooksville, whore he is en gaged in an important murder trial.

Auother delegation will come up from Jacksonville to-morrow to urge its passage, but many think the Senate will refuse to adopt the bill in its present shape, as to taxation without the consent of the citizens for the payment of bonds to be issued for sanitary purposes.

How Americana Going: to Europe Eat, Drink and be Merry. From the New York Star. The Trans-atlantic lines are preparing to reap their annual spring harvest, and they have good reason to believe that this will be the red-letter year in the history of the traffic. More Americans will go abroad this year, they say, than ever before, be cause of the Paris exposition. There is an enormous profit in the steamship business during the spring and summer months, the gross receipts from a single voyage fre quently rising above SIOO,OOO. When the Etruria, the Umbria, the City of New York or any other of the great liners leaves her dock with from 500 to 000 cabin passen gers, as they do regularly every week be tween the middle of April and the middle of Julv, receipts from the cabiu average more than SIOO for each person, and repre sent in the aggregate $6.1,000. Tue otner sources of income from the ship, such as freight, the mails, the ste rage and the bar, amount to almost a3 rnuc i gain. The expenses, however, are very large, especially for food aud coal. Not more than one or two of the dozen or more regu lar lines running to this country are making anything abo>e expenses, the English com panies not having paid a 5 per cent, di vidend in six years. The profits of the summer go to make up losses incurred by bad winter seasons or by shipwreck. When there is anything left over they put it into new ships, a favorite form of investment among the companies at present, and in very prosperous years they are able to build one or two ne w ships apiece and declare a dividend besides. The cdptain and higher officers on board the first-class liners come in for a share of the general prosperity in the spring of tho year bv giving up their rooms, which are among the best on the ship, to people who are willing to pay for the n. The deck cabins are very desirable, especially when there is a family narty. The captain’s cabin costs SIOO or S2OO extra, which he di vides with the company. The first, second, third and fourth officers and the first engi neer are among those whose rooms may be thus obtaiued. These individuals are gener erally very glad to give them up and find a place for the voyage somewhere in the bowels of the ship. There aro nearly 300 parsons in the crew of a vessel of the first class, among thorn being the captain, six officers, the purser, the surgeon, who is compelled by British law tube there, and receives fees from the passengers; fortv-six seamen, twelve engineers, seventy-two stewards, six stewardesses, twenty-four cooks and 112 firemen. The crew strictly speaking, are those, in eluding the engineers and firemen, who manage the ship and are under the com mand of tho the captain; the stewards, cooks, etc., being under the purser, who has charge of the comfort of the passengers and of all the interior arrangements, being su perior to the captain in this department. It is he who mainly sees after the provisions of the ship, and his position is a very im portant one in the eyes of the company, being the cashier of his vessel. There is not a vessel on the ocean that can seat more than 250 people in the main dining room. For this reason there aro two dinners served when tho passenger list runs above that number, and you are asked at the office whether you prefer tho first or the second dinner —one at 5:30 o’clock the other at <—and this, with tho number of your room is put on the purser’s list with the number of you r place at the table, and when it ii once fix id no change will be made. An officer presides at each of the main tables, and the highest honor is to sit at the captain’s table —if possible, on hi* right or left—and great tact •• quired to arrange the seats satisfactor j af. • l give no cause for jealousy among the . gars. The perishable food only is bought in this country, and such things as melons, oysters, peachos, cigars, tomatoes and other articles that are cheaper ami better here than abroad, together with the necessary supply of coal to carry the snip across the Atlan tic. All of th" groceries and wiuos are pur chased oil the other side, the supply being laid in for the round trip. When a vessel of the first class is lying at her dock in New York in the spring months with nearly a thousand people to feed for seven or eight days, she lavs in an enor mous amount of provisions, which are put in the ica room. Of fresh beef the usual amount is 12,500 pounds, with 760 pounds of corned beef, 5,230 pounds of mutton, 859 pounds of lamb, 350 pounds of veal aud tne same amount of pork aid about 2,000 pounds of fresh fish. These figures may well make the thrifty housewife stare in open-eyed wonder. What could she do with tbe fifteen tons of potatoes put aboard every ten days? Those ocean greyhounds are well supplied with game as the list of the head cook, which < recently seen by the writer, slio wed 200 brace of grouse as being put aboard for a single voyage, with 600 fowls. 300 chickens. 100 ducks, 53 geese, and 80 turkey*, buslles 30 hampers of vege tables, 320 quarts of ioe cream, 1.000 quarts of milk aud 11,500 eggs. It is said that if the ocean dried up, you could trade the route of the trans-Atla tic steamers by rows of empty champagne bot tles between here aud Europe, waich is not surprising, seeing that the Cunard ii e alone u es about 26,000 bottles of champagne per year. The bar is a most important department on a large passenger ship, and the profit from this source is said to often exceed $5,000 from one trip. All of its goods are put on at Liverpool for the round t ip, or at Havre or Bremen. The con sumption for one voyage includes 1,100 bot tles of champagne, SSO bottles of claret, 6,000 bottles of ale, 2,500 of porter, 4,500 of mineral water and 650 buttles ot various spirits. Lemons are used on an average of I>2 per bead per day, apples 2% per head per day, and oranges at the rate of 3 per head per day. The groceries for tho round trip include 650 oounds of tea, 1,200 of cof fee, 1,600 of white sugar, 2,81)0 of moist su gar and 750 of pulverized sugar. The round trip takes twenty-two days, during only one-half of which are the pas sengers aboard; yet it consumes on one ship 1,500 pounds of cheese, 2,000 pounds of but ter, 3,900 pounds of ham and 1,000 pounds of bacon. Rough weather is expensive to tho steamship company in the large break age of crockery which it entails among the cabin passengers and stewards, and the record of a recent vovage showed among the broken articles GOO plates, 280 cups, 438 saucers, 1,213 tumblers, 200 wine glasses, 27 decanters and 63 water bottles. The steam ers of one line runniug between New York and Liverpool sell 64,000 cigars per year, 57,000 cigarettes and 35,000 pounds of to bacco. Among the other items of the yearly supply which appear m the annual report, covering the entire fleet of sixteen ships, are IL< tons of mustard ad 2 tons of pep per, 7,300 bottles of pickles, 8,000 tins of sardines, 15 tons of marmt. lade, 22 tons of raisins and currants, 13 tons of split peas and 15 tons of barley, 50,000 loaves of bread of 8 pounds each, 54 tons of ham, 33 tons of salt, 34 tons f oatrnea' and 10 tons of yel low soap. Over 2,000,000 pounds of meat are consumed every year by this one line and nearly 1,000,000 eggs. MORE ABOUT THE DEAD GIANTESS. She Married a Man Who Weighed Forty-Five Pounds. Fi owithe Philadelphia Record, April 18. Mrs. Hannah Battersby, known for many years as the largest woman iu the world, and w os4 death was announced as having occurred on Monday, at Frankford, was born in Vermont forty-seven years ago, and her maiden name was Perkins. Untit she had reached the age of 12 years she gave no indication of ever being of more than ordi nary size, but by the time she was 17 years old her weight had mounted up to over 500 pounds. Then she was engaged by P. T. Barnum aud joined his show. Traveling in the same company was John Battersby, who weighed but forty-five pounds, and was on show as a living skeleton. GIANTESS AND SKELETON WEDDED. Between these two characters of such singularly opposite avoirdupois there de veloped a strong bond of friendship, and the frail Battersby wooed and won hi3 enormous companion. From the time of their marriage until the day of Mrs. Bat tersby’s death they lived together in loving devotion to each other. Frequently, when her husband was feeble, she took him up in her ponderous arms and nursed him like an infant or earned him off the stage. For one so large Mrs. Battersby was remarka bly symmetrical ia form, and until her fatal illness took uoid of her some weeks ago, she was rioted for her agile step. One daughter followed the union of this strangely mated couple, and is now the wife of Officer Charles Huckel, of the Frankford police. ALL HER FURNITURE WAS BROAD-GAUGE. Mr. Battersby’s ieg gave out some years ago, so that he could not travel and exhibit himself, but his wife continued in the busi ness, and was at Fall River, Mass., when she was taken with her last illness. From Fall River she had to be brought home in a special car, and when she arrived at Frankford nine men carried her into the side yard of her resilience, where she was placed on a lounge and rolled into her room, which was already provided with doors of unusual] width for her accommodation. Here she had a lied nearly double tho ordinary width, and all the other furniture for her use was built upon an equally broad gauge. It was thought until Saturday last that she was getting better, but she had a relapse, and yesterday afternoon she sank rapidly, and quietly passed away at 5 o’cloch with out regaining' consciousness. MEASURBMENTS OP HER BODY. The enormous size of the dead woman may be more readily understood from tbe actual measurements of her body taken after death yesterday. Her length is 6 feet 2 inches, her breadth 2 feet 10 inches, and the depth through her body is 20 inches. The casket will be of walnut, and will be 7 feet long, 3 feet wide and 2 feet deep. No hearse in the city could carry her remains thus incased, aud one will be specially arranged for the oc casion. The funeral will take place to-mor row, aud Mrs. Battersby's ponderous coffin will be lowered into a grave in the hand some Battersby lot ia Cedar Hill cemetery. In order to prevent any possible molestation of the body guards will be placed over the grave after burial, to remain there for an indefinite length of time. During the many years of their show life Mr. and Vlrs. Battersby accumulated a con siderable fortune. WELL DISCIPLINED INSECTS. Ingenuity and Oeneralshlp Displayed in Wars Among Ants. From the Pittsburg Dispatch. Ants are well disciplined insects. Like, the bees, to which they are allied, they are industrious, but, unlike tbo bees, vide more methodically they di and equally the work to be done. In the case of beas some act as sentinels, some attend on the queen, others collect honey, and so on, but whether each bee is kept to the Fame duty through-out life, or whether they are promoted from one post to another, naturalists have not yet been able to tell us. With ants, however, the workers are specially divided into several classes. The civil portion and the military sections each do their work without inter fering with each other in the least. The military nuts are again subdivided into officers and rank in file, ad when they march out the officers place themselves at the side of the column aid not in the ranks. In this way the officers are able to stop stragglers, and by means of com nu uicaiion one with the other to know the commands of the general officer all through the line. Tropical ants are even super! >r to Amer ican ants in their mode of warfare, and have reached a point of military perfection that is absolutely sta tllng. Men are obliged to depend upon va ioties of uniform to distinguish their officers, but the ants have a much more natural method of recog nition, The higher the ran t in the army the bigger the head of the ant—the head of some of the highest officers being bigger than tlio whole body of a private. It is, however, only the females who do the fighting—-for the ants are a nation of Amazons, and the males are of no more ac count in tue communiiv than the bride groom at a w 'ddmg. Wars among ants are chiefly conducted for the purp >so of captur ing slaves, and the ingenuity and general ship displayed in the slave-stealing forays arc truly remarkable.

Tne Montgomery Advertiser thinks that the Centra! will find it necessary to push the Ozark branch farther into Southeast Alabama to get its share of trade from that section. Speaking of this, the Newton Messenger says: “It seems, from leading the Star, that the Central extension has moved a little farther in the direction of Daleville.

Wesley Monumental Church. Editor Morning Hews: Now that the spirit of “rebuilding” is so general in Sa vannah, and while the people are signify ing their readiness to respond, with liberal subscriptions, to appeals for the benefit of the “Y. M. C. A.,” “Guards,” “Odd Fel lows” and the Independent Presbyterian church, just as we might expect Savannah to do, allow me to put in the claims of We>iey Monumental. For tea years the friends and members of this church have been waiting tor a favorable time to appeal to the citizens of Savannah for aid to finish it. I say “to the citizens of Savannah” for it is conceded that Savannah honors the name of Wesley! All de nominati ms Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Baptists and Methodists revere his name. A monument to Wesley is au honor to Savan nah. This grand enterprise, the building of a inonumeutjso suitable, should receive liberal responses from all people in Savan nah. This is the time to finish the work. Its walls are now ready for the inside plas tering. Ten thousand dollars, with the assets now on hand, would place “Wesley Monumental” among the monuments of Savannah’s pluck aud liberality during the epidemic of lire in ISS9. • T. T. Christian.

Miss Emily Jansen, a pretty and accom plished girl, came from her home in Stock holm, Sweden, two yeais ago, to live with some relatives in Caldwell and master the E glish l;*iguage. Her family is one of tbo wealthiest, it is said, in Sweden. On the steamer she met John and Henry Stan ton, the sons of a wealthy English mer chant, who were coming here to try the banking business. The brothers both fell in love with Emily. They are twins and it is hard to distinguish them, so closely do they resemble one an other. Emily preferred John so strongly that Henry apparently retired from the field. They became engaged after reaching this country aud their wedding was fixed for last Thursday night. The presents to the b ide were very handsome, including a check for a round sum from her parents. The groom arrived a little late and was very pale. He said he left his brother very sick in New York and was worried about bun. Hev. Mr. Swansea performed the ceremony, and after it was over the groom said he would go right back to Now York aud nurse his brother. He would return yesterday. After much protesting the bride consented. Yesteruay afternoon an angry and worn out young man arrived here, and going at once to the house of the late Miss Jansen inquired for her. She rushed out aud sup posing she saw her husband embraced him. He repulsed her and asked her to explain her conduct. She said she did not under stand him. He then showed her a dispatch dated at the Continental hotel, Philadel phia, on Thursday. It was directed to John Stanton and requested him to Come at o ce to toe Continental and meet her at 8 p. in. on Thursday. It was signed “Emily Jan sen.” Einiiy fainted when she read the letter, restoratives were applied and expla nations followed. It was discovered that Henry Stanton had decoyed his brother to Philadelphia, and ti listing to his resemblance to John came here and married the girl. John went to New York las: night determined to hunt down his brother aud call him to account. Au arrangement was also made for an application for divorce on Emily’s part.

The congregation of the Independent Presby terian Church have formally resolved to under take at once the restoration to its original form of their church building, destroyed by fire on the night of the 6tb inst. To carry the work to successful completion will require sustained effort and large means. The people of the church feel this, and are prepared to do their utmost, but they will need help from the com munity aud they confidently appeal to the citi zens of Savannah to extend it to them. The many expressions of sympathy, good will, and the desire to help in rebuilding the church that have come to the congregat on fr m every quarter,induce them to believe that this appeal will not be in vain. Sub-committees will call upon citizens gen erally at an early day for the voluntary contri butions, and any persons at a distance, old friends or perhaps former members of the con gregation, who desire to take part in the good work may remit to any member of the com mittee of Ways and Means.
