Tho Horror3 of Isohia Eolipsed in Java. Full Detnllf) of the Itecent EnrthqnnUe and Volcnnlc Eruption Scenes too Dreadful for Comprehension 'liiotiNaiiiU Upon TuounmuIh ol JLIvcm Lost. London, Aug. 30. A dispatch from Batavia, Java, says tho towns of Anjicr, Tiringine, and Tefokbelong were destroyed by tidul waves caused by volcanic emotions. All the light-houses in Sunda Straits disappeared, mid wliero the mountain of Kramatan formerly stood the sea now Hows. Tho aspect of Sunda Straits is much changed, and navigation is dangerous. The distuibnnces began on the Island of Krakatsa, in the straits of Sundu, nbout tifteen miles oil' tho coast of Java. Tho deep rumblings were distinctly audible at Surakorla and Batavia. about and twenty-two miles oil, respectively. Little alarm was felt at first, but within u few hours showers of stones began to fall ut Jonkjokertu, Surabaga, nnd Zerang. AH through tho night shower of red hot rocks and nshes fell, making complete darkness in these towns. In Batavia thero was an occasional fall, nnd it was difficult to keep the street lights burning in the European quarter. By the next morning all communication with Anjier was cut olT, nil the bridges having been destroyed by descending rock and ashes, and tho road rendered impassable. Tho firsj, eruptions were on .Saturday night. On Sunday morning the disturbances had extended beneath the waters of the strait, and they were soon boiling and hissing violently, while great waves dashed upon tho Javanese shores, and the temperature of tho sea went up nearly twenty degrees. Even as far away from tho original point of disturbance as Madura, the furious waves were lashed into mountains of foam as they came" rolling in. The threatening rumbling graduiuly became more and more distinct, and by noon the Malm Meru, tho largest of the volcanoes of Jnva, was belching forth llaiues at a very alarming rate. This eruption soon spread to tho Glinting Tengger, the crater of which is the largest in the world, being nearly four miles in diameter; the Gunung Guntur, nnd many other mountains, until more than a third of tho forty-five craters of Java were cither in active eruption or seriously threatening it. Just before dusk a great luminous cloud formed over the Glinting Guntur, nnd tho crater of that volcano began to vomit up enormous streams of white acid and mud, besides smaller quantities of lava. There were rapidly successive explosions, followed by tremendous showers of cinders and enormous fragments, which were hurled high into the air and scattered in all diiections, to fall, after the force was spent, upon the valley below currying death and destruction. Ah the eruptions increased in frequency and violence, tho disturbance of tlie waters nut rounding the barren const became moro violent. Tho waves camo rolling over a marshy plain along the shore, sud denly engulfing a hamlet of fishermen's rude houses, and turning suddenly back, swept away almost every vestige of what had a moment before been a scene of bustling activity where family ufter family had been rushing around in a vain endeavor to save their effects n id get away with their lives from the ' awful combination of elements threatening them. What a few hours before were fertile valleys, covered with nourishing plantations oi colfee, rice, sugar, indigo or tobacco, tho staples of tlie island, were soon but mud, stone, and lava-covered fields of destruction and rum. Probably not a single crop of Java will bo saved. Tho population of Europeans and Americans in Batavia suffered a loss of perhaps 800 souls out of 35,000 whites there. At Anjicr the Europeuji and American quarter was first overwhelmed by rocks, mud, and laya from tho crater, and then the water came up and swallowed the ruins, leaving nothing to mark the site, and causing the loss of somewhere in tho neighborhood of 2.000 livesof the and those who had tried to find a refuge there. Bantam, once a prosperous and flourishing native city, but practically abandoned many years ago, was entirely covered several times by tho waters, and thero must have been from 1,200 to 1,500 people drowned. The Island of Sorang, just off the coast, was completely iuundaied and not a soul remains to tell the tale of disaster and death. "Vhilo there can bo no accurate estimate formed at present of tho loss of life, it must bo apparent, when it is considered that the island has a pjpulation of over 10,000,000 people, that tho death list will foot up far into tho thousands. Batavia, Aug. .'50. Since noon everything has been quiet. The sky is clear, and communication with Serang is restored. Tho temperaturo fell ten degrees on Monday, but is now normal. The town is covored with a thin layer of ashes, which was so hot when falling, that it killed birds. Tho telegraph linoinen report that whilo repairing tho lino near Anjier early Monday morning, thoy saw a high column of tho sea approaching with a roaring noise. Thoy fled without learning tho fato of tho inhabitants. A Terrible Dlucovory. MATAstonAs, Mexico, Aug. '60. It is reported that a Norwegian vessel was recently discovered near Campioh afloat, and hnving on board the body of one man who held in his hand a paper stating that till liis companions had died at sea, presumably of ellow fever, and had been throwp overboard. Tho namo of tho is not given. GJBL BURGLARS. Hltfplnff In the Home Wlilcli Iticy Ilebbed Arrested mill Iiockcd Up. Boston, Aug. 30. Patrolman Arbecam of station 5, at about 5;30in the afternoon saw Maggie Donovan, a fifteen-year-old girl, living at 3 Rochester street, with a large bundle of clothing and numerous articles "which he concluded she had not become possessed of in an honest manner, and accordingly took her to tho He soon learned that the property had been taken from tho residence of L. S. Knight, 110 Columbus avenue, and upon visiting the house ascertained that the family had gone out of town to spend Sunday. Upon gaining entrance to the houso ho found one Lizzio Downs, eloven years old, of 15 Rochester btrect, and took her into custody. It appears that tho two girls climbed over tho lence into tho back yard Saturday and then climbed up tho grapevine trellis to the second story, whero they broke a pano of glass, and nnlocking the window, gained an entrance to tho h ouse. Onco intide they made a selection of articles which pleased their fancy, and put them in piles on tho floor preparatory to taking them away. After getting the goods pneked up in bundles, the two girls concluded to retire, and sclecjing a bed which suited them, retired o the night. Sunday was spent in searching the house for valuables which had escaped their tho night before, and at about fivo o'clock Maggie started for home with a bundle, intending to return and relievo her partner, but instead was locked up. Tlie two will nppcar in court to answer to the charge of breaking and entering. THE JAMES TRIAL. The SttitoTcMtlmony In nnd (ho Cnse Rested. Gallatin, Mo., Aug. 30. The testimony of the State's witnesses was intended to supply all the missing links and complete the chain of evidence which tho State has been forging for the past four days, and when tho State rested its caso little doubt was left in tho minds of those who havo hoard the evidence from the beginning, of its coinpletencs; The State has woven n net work of circumstances around the accused from which it will require tho most direct and positive testimony in rebutal to extricate him, but all that can be done by able lawvers will bo done. The witnesses for tho defense bear good characters, and their testimony will bo entitled to great weight. The defense will doubtless bo condiicttfd upon two theories. First, to show that James was not a participant in the Winston robbery and that Lid-dell swore falsely. The other portion will be that even if the defendant was at Winston, it has not been shown that he took an active part in the affair, or that he killed McMilan or robbed tho express car. This is briefly tho line of defense mapped out. James' attorneys were in cousultatfon all tho afternoon and evening. PREDICTED FAILURE. Speculation is to th II I K Ilrldga Knllroml.' New York, Aug. 30. Experiments continue to be made with the railroad which is designed to traverse the Brooklyn bridge, the result of which, up. to the present time ut least, has not been of a character to warrant belief in the complete success of the system. It is now nearly three months since the engines havo been running, and yet little advancement toward the completion of the enterprise has been made. As a result of this delay, the people are growing impatient anil on many sides doubts as to the practicability of the svstem are expressed. A number of gentlemen, skilled in the science of engineering, have examined the machinery and are of tho opinion that tho system is likely to prove impracticable, and, as a consequence, must eventually be 'discarded. One gentleman said that even if tho road is evor placed in working order t)ie strain to which it will subject the .structuio will be more than it can bear. There is but one engine to draw the string cf cars up a steep incline, and as a result all their weight is concentrated on the apex of the bridge. EATING BONDS. 'I ho l'vcnliiir Aictit of a Chicago MltlllHC. Chicago, Aug. 30. The Clifton House came very noar ueing the scene of a tragedy. At midnight shrieks and howls reverberated through tho halls, Joe Abbott, a young, powcrlul man, hud locked and barred himself in ho cloak room and lwid gone raving mad. The police patrol was called and six officers broke open the door and scaled the barricade, when Abbott dealt four of them blows with his list, felling them to the floor. He then jumped head first through tho window into the hall and dashed bleeding into tho street. When captuicd and handcuffed, ho foamed with rage and roared like a wild beast. Ho had secured n $1,000 government bond from a satchel and had chewed it into fragments. The proprietor of tho hotel stated that it was a clear caso of Tho young man had talent, Shakespeare was his favorite, and ho read his plavs until he had memorized them fully. A IIlBhTldc. Atlantic City, N. J., Aug. 30. Thero is "iot a place on our beach front that has not lieen damaged to some extent by the Inch tide and heavy surf. Tho total loss win not bo less that $75,000. Long beforo high water, which was at 0 o'clock, tho board walk began to wash away, and by high water tho beach along tho center of tho city was a mass of debris. Bath-houses, restaurants, photograph galleries, and stores, with dwellings attached, which were built so far from the surf that it was thought that no sea could reach them, were undermined and carried .bodily into the ocean. A MAD STEER LOOSE Thrilling SceneB infthe Streets of New York, A Fttrloiift OnHlnuitht Thnt In .Liberty ItumiiiiK Amuck Through Crowded With I.iiNso In Hot Injuries of an AneU Woman The Final Cup tu re. New Youk, Aug. 30. Tho unemployed residents of tho Nineteenth ward enjoyed the not nltogcther rare sport of hunting a steer. Tho animal was in a pen in East Korty-fourth street, when two boys were sent to lead him to a private stall. As they approached tho steer lowered his head, and tlie next moment the boys weio among the rafters of the shed. The animal then bioko the fence of the pen, and ran into Forty-fourth street and started towards 'Second avenue, lie encountered a homeless woman niiined Mary Lambert, about fifty years old, who opened out a uiige umbrella to protect herself. The doer tossed her into the air. There is no knowing how high up she would have gone had not the elevated railroad structure stopped her course skyward. She landed on the street on her face. An arm was broken, her face was cut and she was injured internally besides. A policeman who was in pursuit called- an ambulence and the woman was taken to the Bellevue hospital. The steer then turned southwards, followed by Churlca Reynolds, an ex-cowboy, u ho was mounted on a surface car mustang and provided with a lasso. Behind him there was a lnrge crowd that pelted the beast with stones nnd increased his fury by lodging bullets fioin revolvers in his flanks. At Forty-third street and Second avenue John Nolan and Carl Huhlbackcr climbed up the pillars of the elevated railroad to escape death. Then tho steer 'urnod upon John Haigerty and Roderick villeanter, other ex-cowboys. They nNo escaped by climbing to the elevated railroad. Both left parts of their clothes in the street below. The steer then ran down Second avenuo to street, urned westwards at the corner, nnd halted in Third avenue. The crowd behind quickly camo up, and tho steer apprehending danger, started up Third avenue, and at Forty-third street turned his fnce again westward, and came to a halt again in Lexington avenue, his pursuers being far behind. Presently the of pistol shots startled the steer, and he fled noith wards, and did not stop until he reached Sixty-first stieet. lie encountered a (piad of police and a mob of i thousand persons at btreet and te promptly turned soutfiwaid followed iy a constantly increasing crowd. At ven tli street and Lexington avenue, however. Charles Reynolds lassoed the steer and brought him "to a standstill. The beast was placed on a truck and taken to tho slaughter-house of R. Block uiEiist Forty-seventh street. Mr. Block -aid he was not the owner. No owner appeared up to a lato hour to claim the .teor. It is sasd that several persons, whose names the police did not got, were injured more or less by tho animal. 1 HORACE GREELEY'S PAli."!. Soon to lie Sold nt 1'iiMlr Auction. New York, Aug. 30.

The Itclgulnff Ncni&nl at Atlantic City Bench. New Yoiuc, Aug.:30. A Philadelphia merchant and his young wife have been stopping at one of tho fashionable hotels at Atlantic City. The Indy, who was a belle beforo her marriage, took long and lonely walks with a society dude, without her husband's knowledge, but at last her husband was informed of tho attentions the young man was paying to his wife, and concluded to investigate One night about 11 o'clock while ho was passing down Kentucky avenue, near Atlantic, tho merchant saw the young man kiss his wife at the corner of the two thoroughfares, and then embrace her in an farewell. He immediately rtished toward them, knocked the dude down, and drawing a pen-knife, made a plungo at his wife, who received the dangerous wound in her neck and right breast. ,Sho gavo a piercing shriek nnd fell to the ground.
