APPOINTMENTS MADE YESTERDAY. Washington, D. C, May 28.—General Sheridan has returned to Washington from bis western trip. Attorneys tor certain postmasters have complained to Postmaster General Vilas, that the construction placed by Postmaster General Gtvuham, upon the act of March 3, 18*3, providing for the readjastmeht of sal aries oi postmasters of the third aad fourth class, »as arbitrary and extremely unjust to postmasters in whose behalf the act was passed Assistant Attorney General Brvant, of the Pos office Department has carefullj ex an.imd the complicated statutes bearing on this subject, and as a result of his report the lYstmaster General has decided that while the matter of construction is not free from aoubf, and he is not sure that the construc tion of Postmaster General Gresham was right on the premises, yet the rule having been lullowtd for two years, and some thing over $200 000 having been ap pointed by Congress for the payment of sal aries on that basis, he did not deem it proper, on the strength of his own individual opinion, even if it were adverse, to change that ruling. The remedy of claimants was throvgh the courts or additional Congres sional enactment. A pur he Outbreak, From correspondence transmitted by the W&r Department to the Indian Bureau, it appears that the Apache Indian outbreak »na caused by whisky.

MARSHALL COUNTY WATERSPOUT. Great Damage Don»—A Child'* Corpse— Kallroad Blocked. &XW14 to IA« Beçùur. Mochdstiiax, W. Va , M&y 23.—The damage occasioned by the waterspont ia the lower end of Marshall county, on Tues day, seems to have be« n more destructive than was at first reported. Besides a num ber ot trees and fences being blown down, the com fields were so ba 11/ washed that in some instances replanting will be necessarv. The'stream known as Hay Ran. raised »0 rapidly that the inhabitants living on its banks were unable to make an escape. At the home of Mr. Johnathan Hammona there lay the corpse of one of hiach ldren and before i: could be removed the water had arisen to within nearly one foot on the tiret tloor. A large amount of heavy drift was washed and ot the creek, together with a building of some kind, which struck the corner of Mr. Hammond's house and nearly knocked it from its foundation. The down train on the 0. R. R. R. was delayed several hours in consequence of the amonnt of drift and debris on the track. Across the river, at Captina, the water came down in such tor rent« as to cover the ground to a depth of from four to six inches. The amount of damage to corn fields in the locality is also very jrreat. Notwithstanding the great de struction to property and crops we have not learned tnat anv lives were lost, though several narrow escapes are reported. JUDICIAL NEGLIGENCE. Probable Pardon of a Prisoner Sentenced Vor Life by Mistake. Columbia, S. C., May 28.—Solomon Alt aian was convicted of manslaughter in Kdgeville county, in 1876. The legal pen alty was from 2 to 20 years imprisonment The Judge requested the State Solicitor to aid him in writing out the sentence, and the solicitor, believing that the law as man slaughter had been amended, prepared a sen tence of lite imprisonment, which was signed and pronounced by the Judge. After the court adjourned the mistake wa3 discover ed, but it was then too late to correct it. A It man has served eight years in the peni tentiary. A year ago a lawyer of this city became interested in the case and obtained a decision that there is no limit to the time in which an appeal may be taken from a sentence. Appeal was therefore taken ani the Supreme Court revved the judgment of the Court belo», ar.d remanded the prisoner for sentence in conformity with law. The verdict in 1*76 was accompanied by a rec ommendation to mercy, and owing to the peculiar facts of the caae as related above it is probable that Altman will now be par doned. THE TARIFF OF '67.

Talks Among Ironworkers and Among The Manufacturers Heard< LATEST PHASES OF THE SITUATION. PiTTsuntn, May 28.—"The grass will grow very green about the iron mills this summer if the manufacturers do not sign the scale as it has been presented to them to-day." It was the remark of a boiler as he »at in the office of the Amalgamated As sociation this morning and discassed the siaiation. ^"1 own a property on the South Side worth $:}.500. Before I accept the preposition of the manufacturers I will sell that property and live upon the money un til it is gone. Am I just talking? I tell jcu that I neyer saw the men more deter •mined than they are at the present. We have made every concession that we can stand, and jou can depend upon it that a bitter fight will be waged should the manu facturers refuse to sign the scale. I speak for thousands of workers who are as lully determined on this matter as I am." Can't Afford tu Shut Down. "Is there a feeling among the workers that the manufacturers will sign this scale sent out to day ? ' "There is. The manufacturers cannot afford to shut up their mills. I expect that they will hold a meeting on Saturday, aid the scale will be signed Carnegie s mills will not be closed down. They will sign. So will Morehead's. Jones & Laughlin will come into line, though they are holding back now. The Ktpublic will sign aud also tie I'tiiOD." "There is no reason in the world," broke in the finisher, "whv the manufacturers should not sign. Iron is selling here $ j and $10 lower per ton thun imported from I Kngland. Piusbur? has no competition thai 13 formidable and there will be a cer tain amount of iron consumed this year,and it must l^e made. If there was any resson why we should accept a reduction it wjuld have ceen considered by us before seudioj; out this compromise scale.'' What were the sentiments of these repre lentative ironworkers were a'so tho^e of th* large body of workmen. Of this fact there has been abundant proof,offered. Such being the case, it is either a strike or an ac cession to the demands of the workers that now presents itself. Among tue itlnntiiactiirers. To day the officers of the Amalgamated sent out the compromise scale, as they pre stated it at the second meeting of the iron conference. They also sent out scales to »he different newspapers of the city, ask ing that the copies receive a careful per usual. A mon» the manufacturers there is a quie'ness which promises more than can be seen at a glance. It is not a secret any longer that quite a number of the manufac turer* are willing to sign th<? scale on Sat urday. They have not only said so, but tb»y expressed themselves in a way not to be misunderstood. The firm of i>il.worth & Porter have announced themselves as willing to sign the Fcale. Some of the mannt'acturf rs will not state what they will do It is though: by the workers that they will follow the tirms which have expressed their intention of signing. Prtaiileot Weihe SatNtieri. President Weihe,-of the Amalgamated Association, said this morning: "I » ave really nothing to say in regard to the situa tion To-day the scale will be presented, and it rests now entirely with the manufac turers whether or not there is to be a shut down." Mr Weihe was in good spirits and seemed hopeful that there would not be a general shut-down of the mills. A repre sentative of Carnegie's I'nionjron Works was questioned this morning as to whether the rumor that they would sign the recall today was true. He was- noncommittal and »-aid that the matter was in the hands of the conference committee. Several of the committee who printed the t-cale to the different mills were inter \iewed. Their hopes of at least a portion of tbo mills signing it" were decidedly ap pereut. Sai«' one of them: "We are ex ! kiting at least two of the hi? firms to sign ht» fcale before the dav is over. Who art •fcfcv Carnegie lires , and Lindsty, Mc Cutcheon & Co. We are expect it g them to send the scale re quired to headquarters before evening. All Will cicn. "Before the week is out I ihiuk the scale will be generally signed. I can give you ar. illustration of how at least some of the manufacturers feel in regard to the matter. At one Lawrenceville mill, when we pre-* sented the scale this morning, a member in directly admitted that he was inclined to sign it at once. Of couree his îirm does not feel like being the first to sign, but you may be sure scire one of them will do so, and then it is only a question of a day or so until others folio* in the same course.''

He had returned to hie work in the foundry after dinner, and at about bait after one o'clock the wheel at which he was working and from which he had turned to lay do*n a casting that he had bean polishing, bursted into three pieces, one of which was driven through the floor, made of plank an inch and a half thick; a second piece was driven through a heavy partition, the other piece, being abont oue half of the wheel, struck the unfortunate man on the back of the head, crushing it as btfore stated. The » piece after striking him was driven like a cannon ball through the roof, passed over - the top of a neighboring house and fell in the back yard, where it sank a considerable depth into the hard earth, shoving that it had been hurled to a great heighth atter Çcesing through the roof of the toundry. he stone was about sixteen inches in dia,m eter and one and one half inches thick. 1 he pieces cut through the solid planks as smoothly »9 if from a cannon, leaving holes the size of the pieces.
