Died near Crescent City, Putnam coun ty, Florida, on March 26th, 1884, William Lowndes Calhoun, at the early age of twenty-six years and four months. The remains were brought to this city, and on yesterday the funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Mr. Williams at the Episcopalian Church. Nearly all our citizens were included in the Ion" procession which escorted the remains to their last resting place on the beautiful Heights which overlook our city. Mr. Calhoun was loved and admired by all who knew him, a true friend, a brilliant logician, and a lawyer whose promise of excellence at a riper age was recognized by all his brethren at the bar. To the sorrowing relatives, from our whole population will come the voice of condolence, all the more earnest because we knew the lovable qualities and true worth which will endear to us the mem ory of the early dead. PERSONALS. Judge McFarland, of the supreme court of Tennessee, is among the distinguished guests at the Putnam. Mr. S. Graham, accompanied by his mother, arrived from New lork last night by the steamer City of Jacksonvile. Miss Fox, of the Everett House, Jack sonville, and Mr. Hinchman, of the Du val, were guests of the Hotel Palatka on yesterday. Major Moran, general passenger agent of the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West railroad, was in town yesterday. He can't keep away from the Gem City. Mr. W. O. Eastlake, of the Hotel Pa latka, has returned from a flying trip north. While he was away he rented the superb Arlington House at Ocean Grove, New Jersey for next summer. Captain Jno. II. Welsh will leave Pal atka to-dav for a short visit to Washing ton City and Erie, Pa., his old home. He will appear before the military com mittee of the house, having been sum moned as the President of the National Soldiers and Sailors Home of Pennsylva nia. He will be absent ten days or more The Florida Herald brings this grace ful notice of the late William Lowndes Calhoun: "Brilliant, versatile, warm-hearted, impulsive and erenerous, Willie Calhoun had attached himself to a host of friends in this and other states who will read with sorrow of Ins early death. He had just settled himself seriously to the work of life, and was winnincr his way to the front of the bar. when the death Angel drew him awav. Had he lived and struggled he would have attained emi nence and distinction worthy of his name. "The writer, who knew and loved him and was bound to him by tender ties, can say no more than that he was worthy of the warm ilace he held in the hearts of A. his friends." CITY NOTES. The Daily News is one month old to day. We were informed by Major Hutchin son of Leve & Alden, that the schedule of the steamer Cygnus and Florida wil not be changed at present. The concert last evening at Fry's opera house was a brilliant success. We regret that the lateness of the hour prevents an extended notice of the whole entertain ment. Mr, Fla., view , Geo. W. Smith, of Jacksonville was in the city this week with of starting a carriage repository Messrs Green & Co., have just received an invoice of Mr. Smith's vehicles and they are elegant in finish and durable as regards workmanship. We had a pleasant call yesterday from Mr. D. J. Justice the effiicent foreman of the Florida Southern Railway shops. Mr. Justice reports his hands full of work at this time. He controls fifty men at this writing and the interests of the road are continually enlarging and expanding. He is a good one and a tar-heel. New Advertisement. Read the notice in our advertising col umns in reference to Prof. Mc William's visit. The Floating Gallery. For some weeks, a floating photograph gallery has been moored to a pier on Hammock road, quite a bit of aquatic architecture. On yesterday the moorings of this singular craft were loosened and it floated down the cove while a full throated howitzer on board bellowed forth a salute. We learn that the com modore of thisfloat t, Mr. Pine, is seeking a tow-loat with a view of changing Ins location. An Astonished Drayman. On yesterday, Andy Smith, a colored teamster, was driving a coal cart down Water street and when he reached Reid street a bag containing charcoal ignited by spontcneous combustion and a cloud of smoke enveloped the vehicle. Smith gave a hasty glance back at his load and his eyes bulged like knots pn an orange stick, and then he hastily dismounted and spilled the burning sack and its con tents on the roadway. A News' repor ter, who happened to be passing, asked Smith "what was to pay," and he ex plained the phenomenon by saying he had sacked a "tire chunk" along with his coal. The faberite suggested "spontane ous combustion," but Andy showed two horizontal bars of ivory and shook his head incredulously, as much as to say he couldn't have his eyebrows pulled in that sort of style. The Irrepressible Bob Tails. Florida Herald. Come now, "Charlie," you should not speak of those elegant papers, the Palat ka News and the Florida Herald, as "bob tail dailies." It is neither dignified nor kind in Mr. Appleton's proof reader to do this. The state is fond of those papers, and is learning to like them better every day; and the people will fail to appreciate such disrespectful language towards their favorites. Moreover, we would admon ish you, Charlie, that upon the race course the "bob-tailed nag" is neither lacking in speed nor bottom, and that the obstreperous caudality of your morning "hack" is likely to interfere with his glorious achievements upon the political turf. At the present writing the pools are selling 20 to 13 in favor of the "bob tails." A Dabster iu Deceit. Dos Moines Leader (Dem.) The statesman who first conceived the idea of slapping a tax upon his fellow countrymen and calling it "protection" was a dabster in the art of deceit. His idea has cost the laborers and consumers money enough to rebuild the Tower of Babel with golden bricks. PROMINENT PEOPLE. Forbes. Archibald Forbes has to go to work again to retrieve a lost tor tune. Wright. A. M. Wright, of Indiana, has given $1,000 to each of twenty neph ews and neices. Hayxe. Paul H. Hayne, the Southern poet, lives in a plain cottage in the pine woods, near Augusta, Ga. Porter. President Porter, of Yale, objects to co-education because the sys tem would divide the time and perhaps the sensibilities and interests of the in structors. Fisk. -General Clinton B. Fisk, speak ing at the dedication of the Park Avenue Church, in New York, on Sunday even ing, said that the Methodists have 27,000 churches and are building 7,000 a year right along. Cisco. John Jay Cisco, who died in New York on Sunday, began life a poor boy, became a tailor, entered the dry goods business and subsequently made large sums of money as a banker. He was one among the millionaires of Man hattan Island. Scaria. Herr Emil Scaria, who is re garded by many as the greatest living bass singer, will make his appearance in America at the Philharmonic concort in New York. He is forty-four years old now and has been singing in public since his debut at Pesth in 1860. He has been at the Imperial Opera in Vienna many years and was the hero of the Parsifal festival. Gwix. Old and hardly ever heard of William M. Gwin, who used to be known as Duke Gwin, and who served two terms in the United States senate from Califor nia, ended his public life in 1861, and for some years past has lived quietly and ob scurely in Washington. He is over eighty. Gatling. Mr. Gatling, the famous in ventor of the gun which liears his name, is now well on in years, and his hair and whiskers are snowy white. Strangers visiting him can always count on a de tailed and interesting description of his wonderful invention, and are sometimes surprised to hear the benevolent-looking old gentleman talk about his wholesale slaughtering machine as unconcernedly as if it was merely an improved hay rake. Oiling the Ocean. Mr. Shields has taken out patents for his great apparatus in Great Britain, France and America, and with a natur al anxiety to promote its general utiliza tion in the work of saving life and pro tecting property, in its efficacy for which purposes he is a firm and enthusiastic be liever, he has had his appliances set in gear about Folkstone harbor, whither journeyed some gentlemen interested in the objects. The experiments would have had great er practical results if the sea had been rougher. But the visitors saw enough to convince them of the marvelous effects of oil in quieting the perturbation of the ocean. The "white horses" that came tumbling in from the channel had to smooth their manes and take on demure ness as soon as they reached the rayon of the oil. And not the least surprising fea tures of the oil's influence is the singular ity small quantity of it needed to produce the most marked effect. It was told to the visitors that a single drop of oil will spread over a water surface of one square yard. In an Atlantic storm, in the win ter of 1882, the captain of the Airlie, making very heavy weather as he lay hove-to, determined to try the "oil cure." He hung out two canvas bags, each con taining about two gallons of oil. In half an hour his deck was dry, and for forty eight hours not even a spray broke over the bulwarks. When the gale abated he hauled in his bags, the oil in which had never been renewed, and there remained still in each bag ever a quart of oil. When the visitors reached the end of Folkestone pier they found a couple of force pumps rigged there, and were told that a pipe from these stretched along the bottom in a westerly direction to a point on the shore, inclosing a considera ble extent of broken and troubled water. Presently the pumps were set to work, and soon after the oil was seen rising to the surface and spreading over it, having escaped from the pipe through the valves. The "fields" of oil were at first distinct, but as they spread gradually over the troubled surface, they coalesced, and then that surface, though heaving in a languid, heavy manner, was unbroken by foam crest. The "pack" or "field" of oil slowly drifted away with the tide past the pier head, and so eastward in the di rection of Dover, spreading wider and wider as it drifted, the oil still maintain ing its dominance over the chafing bil lows. In the calm water it made, the Folkestone lifeboat rode lightly, gently rising and falling, whereas in the rough er water beyond the influence of the oil, the gallant craft had leen dancing about like a cork. On the unoiled water her progress had been slow, notwithstand that the lusty crew lay down to then work with a right good will; but within the region which the oil had lubricated, she traveled at speed with much less strenuous strokes of the oars. Jonah and the Whale. Philadelphia Record. The trouble with the protectionist dem ocrats in congress lies in the fact that they will insist that it is easier for Jonah to swallow the whale than for the whale to swallow Jonah. When the trial is made they may possibly become con vinced that their confidence in Jonah is misplaced. Tariff May Become Epidemic. . New York Herald (IndJ. By the way, the democrats have been beaten so often on a "straddling" and two-faced platform that they had better avoid that kind. The republicans do let ter with that sort. Also, they ought not revamp any old republican platforms. Finally, they had better nominate a man who has had "the tariff" and knows by experience that it is not a mere local dis ease like the measles or the mumps. It looks to us a little as though "the tariff j might presently become epidemic. Fresh up-river Oranges, very tine quality, received every day. at Tom kins A: Weeks, on the wharf.
