'New York, July 15. Tho Fonian Navy
tin account of tho inspection of which was
published in Friday's World, 1ms loft
and is prolmbly now nt sea, bourid
either across the ocean or to somo British
porA nearer at hand.
Engiuocr Gilbert, who waB in
charge of tho largo rain when
sho started somo months slnoo nnd
about two hundred miles outsido of
Sandy Hook, on which occasion bIio had to
return on account of a del'oct in her machinery
wont down and informed Mr.
McGiehan that ho was going to tako tho
Mr. McGichen told him that ho must
produce somo nuthority before ho would
allow tho vessols to leave his yard and, j
also, that their bills must be paid.
Mr. Gilbert said that all this would bo
attended to, and went on board the larger
vessol and proceeded to got up steam.
A full supply of petroleum, Mr.
said, was taken on board a few days
ago. As Mr. Gilbert removed his coat Mr.
McUiehan noticed no naa a( mom strapped
around his body in which was stuck a '
largo navy revolver, and in jumping from '
tho dock to tho deck of the ram, another
revolver dropped from his pocket and foil
ovorboard. After tho rams had loft tho '
ship Mr. McGiehan had his boy divo for
this weapon and it was recovered. I
It is a small silver mounted Smith & '
Wesson revolver with five chambers, all of
which wcro loaded. j
At about 2 o'clock when tho tide was
nearly at its oxtrpmo height, Mr. John J. j
Breslin, who was eonnectod with tho escape
of some Fenian prisoners from Australia '
some years ago, camo around and after
exhibiting gto Mr. McGiehan documents
authorizing him to tako tho raniB away, ho
called for and paid all the obnrges that
Mr. McGiehan had against them.
Tho chains which fastened tho rams to 1
the dock wcro then unlocked and tho
large vessel with the little one in
tow steamed out of the, bIIji and proceeded
to Morris & Cumings' dock, about
.aqunrter of a mllo above tho shipyard. '
"Here, it is said, tho larger vessel was
storedt as if for an extended trip. Tho
placo is an excellent one for tho purpose,
being romoto from observation and
for tho most of the timo. It will bo
remembered that it was from this dock
that tho largo ram took her departure on ,
her previous trip. j
The Baxter Wrecking Company's tug- j
boat John Fuller arrived, and, taking both
rams in tow, proceeded witn tiioin down tne
buy, and the last seen of them sho was
going with them through tho Narrows.
Tho supposition is that she towed them
down into tho Horseshoe, when by Wans
of her powerful steam dorrick tho smaller
ram was lifted on board of some vessel
either steamer or sailing cratv and that
sho and tho large ram proceeded to sea in
company. It may be, however, that both
rains wero lifted, the dorrick of tho tow-boat
being, it is said, suflioiently powerful
to accomplish this.
A reporter procured a boat and visited
Morris & Cumming's dock, but the only
person found there was the watchman, who
corroborated Mr. McGiohaii's state aiont
relative to Engineer Gilbert being fully
armed, and said that several boxes wero
put on board of tho large ram, tho contents
of which ho was Ignorant of.
Mr. John 1 Holland, tho builder of the
Fonianfjrams, said that tho largo boat was
actually tho first, that was a complete success
in every point, particularly in that
special point in which all previous attempts
have been unsuccessful the power of controlling
their horizontal and vortical motion
Tho smaller of tho two boatB, when finished,
is intended to experiment on several
now ideas which were suggested by experience
with tho larger ono, which proved
that it is possible for two men to remain
three days under water in her without renewing
tho supply of air. Her compass
worked well under walor, therefore steering
is possible. It is poasiblo to come to
the surface for tho purpose of observation
and descend again in two or three Becouds
In steering for any given object her course
can bo corrootod without actually coining
on tho surfaco, b,ut near it. Her spoed is
the sarao whether under or over tho water.
All the torpedoes she carries can be discharged
while under water. The energy
of tho torpedoos on leaving tho muzzle of
tho gun are estimated to bo about forty or
fifty foot-tons. Tho path of tho torpedo is
perfectly straight for twenty-five to thirty-five
yards, and can carry a hundred-pound
chargo of dynamite. The ramming energy
of tho tho boat is about forty foot-tons.
Tho boat being pcrfootly manageable
under water this blow can bo delivered
four feet under the armor of a ship, and a
few such blows will Blnk any vossol. An
other point of groat importance demonstrated
by tho experiments in that ships
in an attacking llcot havo absolutely' no
defonso against thorn and cau not bo awaro
of their presence until struok. It is vory
evident that neitbor boats on the surface,
nor torpedoos, nor guns givo any of
protection from their attack. The only remaining
moans of safety for tho survivors
when tho presence of tho rams is discovered
is to move away at full epoed.
A boat foot long, displacing
140 tons and capablo of remaining at sea
for woeks togothor could bo built for about
$40,000. Her crow wonld bo about sovon
men. Tho monoy it would cost to construct
and maintain an ordinary iron-clad would
be sufficient to build and maintain fifty of

follows : " I will pay 1,000 reward to any
mob who will lynch a whito man for mur
dering a negro In tho South, or for outraging

Boston, July 15. A caso frequently
cited by thoso who maintain that tho China- '
man can never bo thorougly Americanized
is that of the Celestial whose story is told
bolow. Ho was in his timo a noted man
in this city, nnd many now rcmembor the
Chinese tea merchant of Union street, Oong
Ar Showo. J
He landed in New York about November,
1811, and it has always boon understood
that ho wrts ono of a company of Celes
tials who camo with a sort of Chincso
entertainment and a ,renl Chineso junk,
which was exhibited in Now York and
Boston during tho followiug years, and
which did not prove bo successful as was
anticipated. Ar Showo was then about
nineteen or twonty years of age. About tho
year 18-17 he entered tho employment of
Bedding & Co., as a salesman in
tho toa business, which that firm
then began to mako a specialty. Ho
was among tho first Chinamen ever seen in
the streets of Boston, perhaps tho first ono,
and will bo long rcmomlcrcd by all who
were boys at that time, and gazod with unabated
wonder and astonishment at his
almond eyes, olive tinted skin, long black
queue, baggy trousers, silk polisse and
queer shapetl shoes. Among tho attendants
employed by Redding & Co. was a
very prepossessing young lady, who became
greatly interested in tho youthful Chinaman,
and patiently devoted herself to his
instruction in the English language and
civilized ways. Sho subsequently became
his wifn. Gradually h put off his peculiar
drees, cut off his queue, and clothed himself
a1! an Ameiican.
Somo time alxuit tho year 1851 At
Showe commenced the tea business on his
own account, in which ho was vory successful
and gained a handsome fortune.
January 1(5, 185:1, ho was married to
Miss Louisa M. Heuss by Rev, Joseph H.
Clinch in the St. Matthew's Episcopal
Church nt South Boston. Tho wedding
created quite a sensation nt the lime, nnd
it always was a mnrvel how two persons,
apparently so utterly dissimilar, should be
drawn together. For twenty-four years
they lived happily togothor, and wcro blest
in family and possessions. Ar Showo's
affection fot his wife amounted to a
adoration, and sho was u porson
worthy of any man's love. They had three
children, a son and two daughters. Ar
Showe was baptized in St. Matthew's
Church, April I), 18"4. nnd was christened
Charles. For a few years ho resided in
South Boston, but subsequently removed to
Mnplewood, where he was largely inter,
bsted in real estate and its improvement.
Ar Showo took out his preliminary
naturalisation pnpers at tho March term of
tho Court of Common Pleas in tho year
18f7. Mid was naturalized March 11), 1800.
Mrs, Ar Showo died some timo about
187 or I87a The older daughter was
marriod previous to her mother's decease,
in her prosenco and at her request. Alter
tho death of his wife,Ar Showo appenrod to
lio a goinl deal broken up and greatly do-pressed
in spirits. Ho Bottled his affairs,
gave each of his children a comfortablo
home and went to China for a visit,
gone a year. Ho Btayod two
years, however. After remaining a short
timo in this country he returned again to
China, whoro it is undci stood, ho married
a native Chinese wifo, but nothing dofinite
has been heard from him in any way.

New Youk, July 15. Tho telegraph
operators of tho different companies are on
the verge of a general strike. They havi
refused to accept the terms offered by tin
companies nnd are awaiting another decision
boforo issuing tho order to all operators
in tho country belonging to the Telegraphers'
Brotherhood to quit their desks.
The Exocutivo Committee of the Brother-hood
wcro busy all day answering the
that poured in from all parts of the
United States and Connda inquiring how
mutters wcro progressing, and pledging
that, in case a strike was ordered, nil
oporators belonging to the Brotherhood
would stop work onco.
The Brol herhood of Telegraphers of the
United States and Canada comprise more
than two-thirds of all the tolegrahors, including
women oporators, clerks, linemen
nnd all connected in the business.
The delegates from different cities met
nt Chicngo hiBt February and drafted a
bill explaining their conditions, and demanding
that tlio companies regulate tho
working hours of tho men.
Tho demands, as has already boen announced,
wero prcsontcd to tho Western
Union Company Inst June, and the reply
given by tho company has not been well
An olliccr of the Brotherhood said: " Everything
is in readiness, and if the terms
of our circular to the conference are not
occecdcd to tho cntiro force of operators
will striko. We havo bo arranged matters
that all tho cities and operators along the
railway lines will bo informed within
twenty-four hours of our decision, so that
tho Btriko will becomo genoral from the
start, and all telegraphic communication
will bo stopped as short as if tho wires
were out. It is a mistaken idea to believe
that tho companies have made us any concessions,
and what they agroo to do is
really to work us harder nnd closer than
boforo. They have prepared a code which
is moro obnoxious to the men than the old
system over was.
" For instanco, thoy sy nine ' actual '
working hours shall constitute a day's
work and seven for night work. Now, this
only bcuetits tho men who work for stations
like Long Branch nndSaratogu, whore they
are often obliged to sit boforo the sounder
from (i in the morning till 12 at night, but
lor us, who woik in tho larger
cities, it robs us of our meal hour, for as
the committee construo the wjrd actual,
it menus time actually spent at the desk.
Thus we would be forced to cither lose the
time or clso do without food. Formerly wo
were allowed time for dlnnor nnd supper,
but under tho now code this is abolished.
The companies try to reconcilo us to the
fact that alter July 1 all Sunday work will
be paid for at tlio rate of $3 a day of nine
hours and a like amount for a night of
" This seems a great gain to some, but in
reality it is a delusion, lit New York,
while wo had to take turns at the Sunday
work, alxmt one Sunday in twenty-four
was tho share of ouch man, so thciuciease
in pny is every six months. In the
smal.or towns the otnees are only open
about two hours every Sunday, and at tliat
rate theio would be little increase lor the
men. They refuse to ullow us the 15 per
cunt, iucieuse on the ground that we are
among tho best paid of tho trades. Summing
tho whole thing up it amounts to this:
Formerly they paid us a certain salary
u mouth of thirty days and deducted the
days on which we wero off. Yot often iu
Black timo wo were allowed to go home
early in the day and were paid in full, but
now thoy proposo to keep account ot tho
number of hours actually worked and pay
! us at the rato of nine hours per day.
1 " Wo have choson tho best timo for a
btriko and if we do stop work no one cun
tell how much we will injuro the commercial
world. Firstly, wo will stop the cable
and out off Europo fiom all communication
with this country, then all the lailroad
Btation men will stop, nnd that will probably
result in groat danger to trado. Tho
pi ess will nlso sutler greatly, and tho
largo cities will have all special news cut
Another mombcr of tho Brotherhood
said : " All prominent wires are worked
by Union men, and thoy will stop, no matter
what special terms May bo made for
thoin. Tho companies will try to kcop these
men working as long as possibly
but wo have matters so solid that
insido of fivo minutes tho instruments in
tho main office will be desortod and no one
will sond or recolve a word after tho ordor
to striko is given ; once lot tho men striko,
and then wo will not return until our
aro granted. Wo arc dotcrmincd to
win and will make a bitter fight."
Tho General Managers of tho Western
Union havo made no preparations in caso
of a strike. Thoy still boliove that tho
difficulties will be settled to the satisfaction
of tho operators. At tho main office
all dosks aro occupied and tho tnon work
as if everything wore smooth and harmonious.

Mysterious Ieath of a tonne Girl la

DAJiBunr, Comk., July 15. Miss Mamio
Cablos, about fifteen years of ago, fully
developed brunolU, handsome and attractive,
has, been found at 5 o'olock in tho
morning lying In 6 dying condition in a
eooludod plaoe just boyond tho Junction of
Morris and Wost atroota in this eity. Near
I where she was lying was a box containing
Btrychnlno bearing tho label, "Poison,"
from " Hawloy's Pharmacy." It is evident
that her death, which ocourred shortly
nftcr her discovery, wna caused by a doBO
of this poison, though by whom administered
is yet unknown.
Tho woman who first discovored her
lying in her death throes was Mtb. David
Osborn, who wns nttracled to the spot by
cries of murder Hurrying along tho
which is a mere path lined with a
heavy growth of weeds and underbrush oif
tho fop of a high ridge but littlo trn.vollcd
In tho late hours of the evening nnd early
morning, Mrs. Osborn saw tho beautiful
young girl lying on tho ground and partially
hidden by some bushes.
The poor girl was unable to speak, and
nil that Mrs. Osborn could do was to attract
the attention of passers-by. Several persons
so drawn to tho spot recognized tho
girl as tho adopted daughter of Horace C.
Cables, a florist living on Spring street,
somo half a milo away. Ho was aroused,
ns also Dr. Adams, tho Depaty Coroner, but
it was too lato to bo of any assistanco.
When the latter arrived on tho spot tho
young girl was doad.
Tho body was romovod to an undertakers,
and tiro Coronor'B inquost begun.

Wednesday evening shortly after nine
o'clock, so Mr. Hawloy avers, Miss Cables
called at his drug storo and stated that sho
wanted somo arscnio to poison cats, which
wcro giving tho family troublo by catching
chickens. Sho did not ask for any
strychnino nor did ho sell her any.
Mr. Cables is a man in comfortable circumstances,
and so far as known provided
the girl with a pleasant home. He says
that he had always regarded hor as leading
a proper life, but sinco tho fatal act
sovcral circumstances havo eomo to his
knowledge which make him fear that her
conduct wan inclined to bo somewhat
fast. Wednesday ovening, ho said, sho
had spent at homo, at least up to about 0
o'clock, when sho told him and his wifo
that sho was feoling tired, and leaving tlio
room, said sho was going to bed.
As soon as hor doath had becomo
known a.yonng man named Bowky called
upon him and frankly Btatod that Miss
Cables' going to bed was a mere subterfuge;
that she had afterwards stolen secretly
out of tho houso and mot him, young
Bowky, by appointmont in tho street.
Mr. Bowky further told Mr. Cables'that
ho had taken her to Elmwood Park, opposite
the Tumor House, whoro tho Citizens'
Band of Bethel woro giving an outdoor
concert. They had loft there at
about midnight and Mr. Bowky had escorted
her home, leaving hc at the door.

nw Jfi ) PF mm DEAD
The French Pretender, the Oompte

Who Ho Im and Wlint Ho
Pahis, July 15. It is reported that his
physicians aro hourly expecting tho death
of tho Count do Chambord. Ho is (almost
continuously in a stato of syncope, and 1
is beyond tho ljbunds of probability that
ho can recover. The excitement
following upon tho first announcement .
that he was in extremis has subsided, and
the impression piovails that nothing of any
great political significance will result from
his demise. It is not believed that tho
Count de Paris who, it is now understood,
will sucoeed to his royal claims, will be
foolish onough to issue a manifesto. Paris
was much moro excited over his birth than
sho is likely to be over his death.
That occasion may now bo recalled.
Early in the morning of
September 29, 1820, the good pooplo of
Paris were awakened by a salute of
twenty-four cannon announcing tho birth of
a prince. Crowds Hocked to tho Tullcrics,
and nt their expressed desire the royal
child was held up to their view in his
cradle. Louis XVIIL had rubbed the
young prince's lips with garlic and had
mado himip a few drops of wino aminuto
after his birth, following tho example of
tho fathor of Henry IV., of France, in his
royal chateau at Pau in 1550. The babe
so ceremoniously ushered into tho world
was Henri do Frauce, the offspring of the
union of tho Duo de Borri, nephew of Louis
XVIIL, nnd Caroline, tho beautiful daughter
of tho Prince Royal of tho Two Sicilies,
himself a scion of tho house of Bourbon.
Tno infant was created Duo de Bordeaux as
a mark of royal gratitude toward tho city
ofGnionnc for her unswerving loyalty to
the Bourbon dynasty.
All Paris was ablazo with illuminations.
Royal clomeucy was granted to political
offenders, and munificent favors were
abundantly distributed. Tho illustrious
Chateaubriand paid a visit to the Holy
Land and brought back a large supply of
wator from the Jordan, in which the " child
of miracle " was baptized with great pomp.
It soomed as if a brilliant future awaited
the hoad of the older branch of the Bourbons,
who slept nightly in tho moat sumptuous
cradle, inlaid" with TvbTy, "precious
stones and rare woods, that FrantPhad
ever Been. Tho castle and estate of Chambord,
an ancient royal demesne near Blois,
being in tho market, wn.s purchased by
public subscription and presented as ft
testimoninltof affoclion to the royal babe.
Enthusiasm prevailed. '
Uneventful was the career of the Comto
until the la 1 of the Empire, immediately
after the disaster at Sedum. On October
I U, 1870, he addressed a proclamation to
' France from tho Swiss frontior, promising
I to expel tho enomy from the country and
to maintain tho integrity of its territory if
the people would rally round "the true
national government, having right as its
foundation and honesty as its principle."
I Anothor proclamation, dated January 7,
1871, was issued to all tho European Gov-
ernments. It protested strongly against
1 the bomlmrdmcnt of Paris. Just nftcr
, tho Communist insurrection he
published another inunifesto, in which
he sought to dispel the popular prejudlco
ugalnst tho traditional monarchy, declaring
that his only wish wns to labor for tho
reorganization of the country and, at tho
head of the House of France, to preside
over hor destinies, while submitting with
confidence tho acts of tho government to
tho bona fido control of representatives
freoly electod. This manifesto, after declaring
tho Comto's desiro for tho independence
of the Holy See, and that he did
not desire to exercise any dictatorship but
that of clemency, because in his hands and
In his only cloincncy was only justice, concluded
with tho noted phraso, " Tho word
rests with Franco ; the time with God."

New York, July 15, Dennis Kearney,
tho labor agitator, accompanied
by Stophcn MaybelL his to
tho Chicago Anti-Monopoly Convention,
arrived in this city from Chicago. Ho
Bays that tho Chioago convention was a
fraud; that instead of being an anti-monopoly
convention It was striotly in favor
of monopoly and the railroad corporations. ,
Tho convention was paokod by tho delegation
from Illinois, and he and his fellow
dolegat08 from San Francisco wero excluded
from tho convention by a voto of 01 to 78.
Ho gives an emphatic denial to tho statement
that ho was working in tho interest of
tho Central and Southern Paoifio Railway.
"Why," ho Bays, "I havo cut down tho
incomo of that railroad nearly 10,000 by
Btopplng tho emigration of the Chinese, and
I think that Biifiiciont proof that I am not
working in its favor. I find, howover, that
tho road pays its 11,000 omployoi much better
than tho majority of other roads, giving
thorn $2 per day, whoro tho others pay only
a littlo moro than SI."
Mr. Koarnoy sayH that it is his intention
to mako a general movement for
shorter hours and higher pay for
tho laborers all through this country.
" It must bo a political organization,"
he said " and now is tho timo
for it, as tho pooplo are of tho mind that
tho railroads and othor monopolies must be
controlled, and it is thoso corporations
whioh determine to s great extent tho pay
of tho laborer, as when a corporation pays
a high price tho gprivato individual will ,
find ho has to follow.
Ho says ho will consult with tho labor
unions in the oity nod see if they havo
any ideas on tho matter, and this wcok ho
will hold a mass-mooting, and aftor remaining
hero for about two wooks will go
to , tho fothcr k States Pennsylvania and
