Thcro is no reason to uppoao that any soul alward when the ship loft Loudon know anything about Caroy. When the vessol was in ado fast to the dock at Port Elizabeth, in a rather jubilant manner, the informer supervised tho landing of his baggngo.

Carey foil, but beforo ho lost his footing his assailant fired another Ijall into his brain. Tho assassin was for a moment supposed to bo a madman, but when ho flourished his weapon and cried out, "That is James Carey, tho informer; God dnmn his soul," tho oificord of tho Mclroso Castlo at onco realized tho situation, ovcrjKWorod the speaker and placed him in chains. Tho murderer was soon identified as a stranger who had boarded tho Molroso Castlo at Capo Town and booked hiiisolf for Natal. No ono know his business, and on board tho Melroeo Castlo ho had shown no interest in the man ho killed. He waited until his man wont ashore, and shot - bim dead upon tho dock. The prisoner refused to mako any statement. i ho Daily Telegraph boliovea the murder was ordered from either London or Dublin or Now York, and that it would have taken place, no matter what direction he hud taken. The Post alludes to tho murder as a startling pioof of tho discipline and determination of the secret order existing in Ireland. Tho Daily News says that the murder party in Ireland must have an oxtromoly keen secret polico organization. Savo Quiteau, it adds, no criminal has excited eo much attention as Curoy. Tho Dublin News says that while his death cannot but i give joy to tho real friends of Ireland, it is also a menace, and tho unhappy event gives proof, if that wcro needed, that tho elements of danger con-tin uo to exist, O'Donnoll, who shot James Cnroy, tho informer, was accompanied from England by his wifo, who appeared to be on terms with Caroy's family during tho voyngo. Dudlin, Aug. 1. A mob entered some houses on Abbey street to-night and seized bedding, furniture, and other articles, with which to mako bonfires in celebration of the death of James Carey.

Hands marched tho streets playing tho national airs, followed by crowds of people cheering as thoy 'marched. A Blight collision occurred between tho crowd and tho uilicials. Tito officials fear tho Fenintis will bo much emboldened by these demonstrations. Cai'E Town, Aug. 1. O'Donnoll was examined boforo a Port Elizabeth magistrate on the charge of uiurdoring James Curoy, the informer. According to the evidence given Caroy and O'Donnoll had been drinking in tho second-class cubiu just before tho murder. When the Bteamer was half way between Table Hay and Algoa Hay, O'Donnoll suddenly shot Curoy in tho neck with a revolver. Caroy staggered away and O'Donnell followed and shot him twice in the back. Caroy died in twenty minutes. O'Donnoll Buys ho was a California digger. Ho had lost largely in a silver mine. He was unaware of Caroy's identity until he saw it stated in a Capo Town paper who Power was. Uo then determined to kill him. O'Donnell was accompanied by a young woman whom he calls his nieoe. Ho is six feet high,, has gray oyes and dark hair, is about forty-five years of age, and ia paralyzed in one band.

Tho etatement that Senor barca, the late Spanish minister, committed suiciue because of tho misuse of funds intrusted to htm by tho Spanish Government for ttie settlement of claims of certain Cubans upon tho homo government is absurd, whatever else muy be true of his prodigality. Tho invariable practice in such matters is to plasc tiie gross amount of tho sums claimed in hand to the credit of tho Executive or his Secrotary of Stato. In this case, Cuba a Spanish dependency, the sum of the Cuban claims was placed to the credit of tho Governor Gonerul, and is to bo by him under tho system of checks and vouchers usual in such settlements. Ti.o real causo of Scuor Barca's suicide was correctly stated in his letter to his wifo, in which ho says " pecuniary obligation's" whioh ho is unabto to meet stare him in tho face. Careful inquiry to-day dovelopod the fact that his wito nnd daughter, both of whhm arc remarkably attractive women, bad involved him hopelessly. It is a fact that within a fow moments of the fatal shot that ended his lifo a representative of the Arlington livery stable was knocking at the door of tho Albomarlo Hotel with a bill again 8t him running up into tho thousands. This livery stable man was so importunate in his demands that the clerk of the hotel was forced to send a waiter, who roached Senor Daren's room just as tho private secretary of tho latter returned, and tho livory stnblo man was the first to telegraph tho nows to Washington in a dispatch to his employer.

Tho dead are everywhere mostly in suoli position that i they are recovered with difficulty. Every church on the island loft standing has been turned into a dead hon&e, and tho houses at Frio havo bcon turned into hospitals. Terror and confusion still prevont an accurate estimate of loss of lifo, and accounts vary from 2,000 to 6,000. Tho only American known to have been injured by the earthquake was a Miss Van Allen, and bIio was only slightly hurt. Among tho porsons who were on tho Island of Ischia Saturday night and who havo been missing since the earthquake occurred, was a Mr. Somnier, an English or American geutloman. Ho resided at the Hotel Manze. The search of tho ruins for tho bodies of victims of tho earthquake at Ischia continued during the night. All tho bodies recovered nro buried immediately to prevent miasma. An eye witness describe tho scene at tho theater at Casamicciola wheu tho earthquake occurred as an awful one. Tho curtain had just risen whon a tremendous shock waB folt. A fearful roar followed and tho ground rocked liko a sea inn storm.

PiTTsnunb, Pa Aug. 1. Inquiries among manufacturers have developed the faot that a very encouraging season of prosperity is boing enjoyed ia the midsura nor months by tho metal and railroad industries of tho country. Pig-iron and all branches of the iron trade aro improving rapidly, having recovered from the four o( injury by tho tariff or a strike. Tho steel industry is in excellent condition, and the genoral stool Industry fair. Tho Bessemer mills throughout tho country, consequent upon the energy displayed in railroad building, will bo lull of work for tbo noxt four months. Somo largo for rails wore placed 1 ast week, one of five thousand tons going to tho Scranton mills. The mills at and near Pittsburg are working as full as possible, and will bo continue on present orders for the next quarter. Tho Bethlehem and new Soul h Chicugo mills are both engaged in trouble with their workmen, but havo heavy orders in. Tho inquiry for rails is very strong, and somo heavy contracts will be given next month. Tho summer dullness among tho iron mills has been moro year than usual, but tho indications are very promising. Prices are just hardening and a better condition of a Hairs is approaching, and with the resumption of tho nail-mills and tho completion ot rapairs and starting up of the many idlo rolling-mills next month a good opening for the fall trade is assured. Tho stocks in the mills are not large, and inquiries are becoming strong on structural and other work, which denotes a better fooling. Orders are not arriving as yet, but standard prices denote their oarly receipt. Tho at work are generally engaged on a stock for the future, as farmors have no timo for fence-building until tho spring. But tho best indication of tho rovlval in tho iron trodo is the condition of the pig-iron market. Prices are firmer, although higher, and the markot reports really represent the actual value. WANTS DAMAGES. Why a You ii Lndy Hues a Clrcns Tor Sio.ooo. NEwnrno, Aug. 1. After Forepnugh's circus had pulled up stakes at Fishkill Lauding and was leaving for tho Hudson llivcr Depot, four horses drawing a wagon loaded with seats and other pnraphernalia ran away while the driver was drinking in a saloon. When tho horses reached the top of the hill lead ng to the river the heavy wagon forced thorn to a frightful speed, and down thoy rushed to tho bridge over the tracks just south of the depot. Thero a crowd of curious countrymen had gathered to watoh the departing animals. The people Hod in nil directions, and five young girls from Nuwburg took rclugo on a flight of disused stalls leading from the embankment, twenty-live feet high, to the depot. Tho girls had taken but a few steps when tho animals in attempting to turn tho short corner upset the wagon, which shot its load of scats down upon the fugitives. Further on tho wagon and two horses went over. When tho crowd recovered its seiisei it went to work to extricate the unfortunate victims whoso screams were the rescuors' only pride, ns it was pitch dark. 'Mary Welch, Mary Nolan and Anna Mara were taken out very badly woundod. Tho other two wero more frightened than hurt. Mary Welch had the back of hor head and ono leg badly cut, and sustained serious injury to hor baok near tho hip. She is still dangerously ill. Miss Welch rofuscd to settle, and has begun a suit against Forcpaugh in the Supreme Court to recover 10,000 damage? MAN OR GORILLA? Tho .Extraordinary Ctmnteter Who lit Scaring CanrirkM. Ottawa, O.nt., Aug. 1, Pembroke about one hundred miles north of Ottawa liaB a lively sensation in the shape of a wild man eight feet high and covered with hair. His haunts aro on Prottts Island, a short distanco from the town, and tho poo plo are so. terrified that no one has darod to vonturo on the island for several weeks. Two raftsmen named Toughey and Sail-man, armod with weapons, plucked up sufficient courago to scour tho woods in hope of seeing the monster. About 8 o'clock in the afternoon their curiosity was rewarded, no emerged from a thicket having in one hand a tomahawk made of stono and in tho other a bludgeon. Hii appoaranco struck such terror to tho hearts of tho raftsmen that they made tracks for the boat which was moored by tho beach. The giant followed thorn, uttering demoniacal yells and gesticulating wildly. They had barely time to got into the boat and pull a short distance out into the stream when ho hurled tho' tomahawk after them, striking Toughey in the arm and fracturing it. Sallmnn fired two shots, but neither took effect, the. giant retroating hurriedly at tho first sound of fircams. It is moro than probable that the townspeople will arrange an expedition to capturo, if possible, what Toughey describes as a man who looks like a gorilla, wandering about in a perfectly nudo condition, and, with tho exception of the face, completely with a thick growth of blaak hair.

The Death Machine Ericsson Hai Just Made. gnecemirnl Experiment With the New TorieU Boat - Ilbw It In JBnllt It Terrible Power and New York, Aug. 1. A scries of iments with Ericsson's torpedo boat, the Dostroycr, has just been in progress in tho lower bay. Tho vessol is built of iron, is 190 feot long, 12 feet beam, nnd 11 feet depth of hold. Bolow the upper deck is an intermediate deck, arched upward from tho sides of the hull, to which it is riveted, so as to mako it a dc ccting nrnnr. Tho space between it and the upper deck, feet long, is divided by five bulkheads into trix water-tight compartments, the intention boing to fill them with air cylinders, cork, uud other light substances. In a pit at tho forward end, in tho spaco between the upper and intermediate decks, stands tho helmsman. He steers tho and discharges tho gun by a battery. A small glass port, level with his eye, gives him a view of the courso to steer, and the position of tho enemy. He is protected from the fire of tho enemy by a wrought iron invulnerable armorplnte sixteen inches in thickness. A heavy artnorplate also protects tho baso of the smokepipo. so that if tho cutiro fuiporstructuro should be shot away the vessel would not bo disabled. On tho forward end of the uockbousc is a deflecting nrmorplate which runs to the base of the intermediate deck, and thus protects the wheelman and others on duty. The gun from which the torpedo is fired is a breech-loader with a smooth-bore cylinder. It is 30 feet in length, with 10 inches diameter of bore, and is made of wrought iron hooped with stool. It is placed on the forward part of tho vessel, on tho bottom next to the keel, tho inuzzlo terminating in seven feet below tho water-line. Tho water ip provonted from rushing into tho gun by an outboard valvo closing automatically. In loading the gun tho breech is swung upward and over, when tho torpedo nnd charge of powder is put in and the breech swung back nnd locked on tho clutch "principle. The torpedo is 25 feet in length, 15 13-16 inches in diameter, nnd, including tho charge of 250 pounds of dynnmite or explosive matter, weighs 1,500 pounds. Tho body of tho projectile is mado of wood, having a cast iron armature fixed to the tail to balance the opposite end, which is a Bteol cylinder, joined together, and having a capacity for 800 pounds of explosives, to bo discharged by oonotsion. Tho chnrgo of powder is put into the space between the breech of the gun and the tail of the projectile. A fuse is connected with the combustion chamber and is lighted by electricity. In the experiments which havo been mado common cord nettings have been used to determine tho trajectory in tho travel of the torpedo, Tho projectilo used in tho tests is known as the "dummy" torpedo. It h made of wood in two sections, and is ballasted with 320 pounds of load, with a bouyanoy of abont Bixty pounds. The tido currents havo no effect on tho course of tho torpedo, nor can its direction bo detected ns it travels through tbo water, as it docs not make tho slightest confusion when discharged. Tho machinory of tho vessol is entirely below the water lino, hence it is impossible todisablo l with shots from the enemy.
