A California Cloud -Burst.
A dispatch from Bakerfield, Cal., gives; the following further particulars of a great cloudkburst at Tejon cinyon. "A waterspout broke in Tejon canyon, yesterday, which occasioned great destruction, as far as the effect is known. This locality is the valley of Tejon Creek, which discharges into the so ath western part of the Tulare valley, on the lands of General Beale, at a point about thirty miles from this place. At the lower part of the canyon a settlement remains of the Indians of the tribe which once claimed the principal part of ICern and Los Angeles counties, living there by sufferance and under the protection of General Beale. They had good huts, farms, vineyards and gardens, and were living in plenty and comfort. Above them the canyon i occupied by white set-Jers, who have good, well-improved farms. About 4 p. m., yesterday, a wall of water, apparently twenty feet high, was seen sweeping down upon the Indian settlement with irresistible force. Immediately there was a scene of the wildest confusion, Mothers and fathers snatched up their little ones and endeavored to escape to the high grounds. Those not fortunate enough to do so were either swept away or saved themseves by clinirinjr to the branches of trees. The rush of water soon subsided, land when it did so everything they had was either swept away or ruined. The news of the calamity was brought today by an Indian. Hf "could not give a verv intelligible account. When he left only two dead bodies had been found, which had been carried a long distance. If more perished it can not be known until an investigation is held. Fourteen persons are known to be badly injured, having been struck by the drift brought down on the crest of the flood. He came to bring the news to a white man in whom they have great confidence, and are accus tomed to apply to for advice and assistance in emergencies. They returned together. Nothing is known of what occurred further up the canyon. New Styles in Table Furniture. American cut glass is now said to be the best in the world, and it is largely used in dinner service for fruit, ice-cream, and olive dishes. Low flat designs are preferred as they do not obstruct the view across the table." Finger bowls and plates a'e illuminated Bohemian glass, the green, pale amber or crimson surface being quite th'ckly covered with traceries in vivid hues, to which is sometimes added sp'ashes of gold. In a dinner set, each dozen of plates is of a different kind of clrua, with a different design on each plate of a set. The renowned manufactures of Copeland, Min-ton, Royal Worcester, Berlin, Wedgewood, etc., of course take the lead. Fishplates are as often painted with sea weed and shells as they are with fishes. Game plates have almost every known vaviety of the feathered tribe upon them desert plates with fruit, flowers, or a beautiful woman's head upon them ; portraits of French Queens occurring oftener than any others, especially that of the ill-fated Marie Antoinette. " Some magnificent sets in New York "had a stone colored center like an old wall, over which crimson seem to clamber." Another had a gold plate with azure center, against which painted daisies rested. Martin Avery, the "the living skeleton," died last week "in New York of dyspepsia. It was the only disease that he could die of. Consumption could not waste him away, there was no room for decay, and gout would not go near him. , The London Court Journal calls on the Salvation Army to go out and convert Moody and San key. o. Higgins, in the Popular Science Monthly, writes that experiment has shown .that animals confined in a close apartment where they must inhale over again their own exhalations, develop tubercle of the lungs, and that human beings are no less injured by breathing the air of poorly ventilated rooms, ho thinks is proved by the fact that of eleven preachers who died during eight years in the county of Philadelphia, eight died of consumption. .
