At tho office of the Luckonbach Monday
said that the distance from the tugs

solidly built structure like the cig
shaped raft that w.... / . .
ago. It is built in sections, with spaces
between of about S5 feet, and the sections
are chained together with the biggest
obtainable. There are 10 sections,

and 19 feet <leep. The total quantity of
timber is reckoned at «35 schooner loads,
about 23,000 feet of timber or 3,500,000 feet
of lumber.
Only oue mishap took place from St.

Bur Harbor a storm arose and the raft
broke in two, six sections parting fr«im the

The raft wus patched together again with

In a leading editorial entitled Lincoln
and Hamlin, the Philadelphia Time* makes
the following important statement regard
ing the defeat of Hunnibul Hamlin for
the nomination of vice-president, in 1864.
"It is true that Hamlin, an entirely un
objectionable Vice-President and a leader
with peculiar chums upon the Republican
party, was rejected as Vice-President by
the Republican convention of 1884 to place
a Southern man in that office, and it is
equally true that it would not and could
not have been done had President Lincoln
opposed it. So fur from opposing it, Lin

desired it. The writer hereof was a dele

The Hong Kong Daily Press gives a
graphic account of the beheading of 19
Chinamen at Kowloon City, a brief ac
count of which has
lished. A number of Europeans went
over from Hong Kong in the afternoon
to see the spectacle. The prisoners were
to arrive in gunboats from Canton, and
three of these vessels were seen ap
proaching. Immediately on the walls of
the Ynmcn two men took up their posi
tions with gongs, and beat these at reg
ular intervals. Then from every hovel
and hut appeared

witness the arrival of the gunboats and

various reports were spread as to the
number of the victims, rumor giving
them variously from two to 20. Grad

beach, and the close proximity of the

Two or three lower dignitaries we
also landed, and a mandarin shortly
afterward appeared on the scene. A
body of soldiers from the Yamen, armed
with guns of somewhat primitive ap
pearance, and escorted by
bearers, then took up their
along the beach and kept back the surg
ing crowd of Chinese who pressed down
to the water's edge.
All these movements were made de
liberately and with apparently
of making the function
possible. The effect produced
be said to have been that which a
to be desired. The lower types o
nature are much the same all the world
over, and the Chinese crowd on Kow
loon beach behaved much as a crowd of
London or Parisian roughs under simi
lar circumstances would do. Laughter
and ribald jests were to be heard on all
sides. A keen interest, of course, was
betrayed as each succeeding motion
leading up to the grand finale took place
and the appearance of the executioner's
subordinate with three swords brought
the interest to fever heat.
Immediately afterward four boats
containing the prisoners, who were
<" jand «Ä foot, '
on the beach and the prisoners disem
barked. Of these miserable wretches
there were nineteen, thirteen of whom
were concerned in the Namoa piracy,
the remainder being concerned in of

his terrible sword has become blunted,

the shoulder, still connected by a few
sinews, while the blood spurts from the
neck, covering the features which still
move—a sickening sight. The execu
