Galveston, May 23. Railroad traffic throughout the flooded districts of the State is still generally suspended. No mails from the North have leen received for two days. No correct estimate of damage to the various lines is yet obtain able, but well informed gentlemen of this city place the damage to railroad property at $50,000.

The following cities are on the line of commu nication: A IiOST EARIi Iiord Drummoml Turns Up us a Por ter in a New York Shipping House. At the instance of a lady belonging to a wealth' and respected New York fami ly, and old friend of the Lady Capel whose name is withheld at her request says a New York special to the Philadel phia Press, a correspondent has been en gaged for some time past in an investi gation as to the whereabouts of Lady Capel's son, Lord Prummond, heir to the Earldom of Perth and Melfort, and a kinsman of Queen Victoria, who eloped to America with his governess twelve years ago, thus incurring the resentment of his noble relations. This scion of an ancient house was found to-day working as a rter in the Broadway clothing house of Carhart, Whitford & Co. A young man, coatless, heated, and with collar loosened, came forward and extended a big brown, toil-stained hand. "You are Lord Prummond, I believe?" aid the reporter, I am." said he. a littU Knmr!spl hut , -t......, ise disconcerted. He was fully i ii i i iii - lau ana spienaimy bunt, had a iy shaped head and full regular fea tures, with closely cut light hair and moustache. His story, as gathered from himself and other sources, is as follows: George Es sex Montifex, Lord Prummond, only son of Malcolm, Viscount Forth and the Lady Mary Capel, neice of the Earl of Essex, was born September 3, 1S56. At 12 years of age he was an orphan in the care of Ins grandmother, the Countess of Ferth and Melfort, who confined his education to a nursery governess, named Harriett Har rison, Possessing the entire confidence of her master and mistress, the governess and her ward were much together, with out exciting suspician. When it was learned one morning that they had mys teriously disappeared, the effect was startling. Matters were not improved much when the young couple returned later in the day, and Lord Drupamond shyly announced that be was married to Harriett, and praye4 bis grandfather's forgiveness and blessing. The ancient Earl Btormed at what he denounced as a degradation of the noblo name, and an grily forbade hia young heir to ever enter his house again. The bride and groom took steerage pas sage for America and arrived at Castle et Garden almost penniless. The young Lord vowed never to desert his wife or to return to Scotland until he returned as Earth of Perth, and his wife was received as befitted her rank. He assumed the plebeian name of George Johnson, and went to work as a shipping clerk in a wholesale flour house in the South street, where he remained working steadily for about two years until his employers col lapsed in the panic of 1873. Except while on a voyage to the West Indies in a schooner a year ago Lord Pr-mmond has been in the employ of Carhart, Whit ford & Co, ever since, advancing a little but still half shipping clerk and half por ter, and evincing much more inclination for physical than mental exercises. The peerage of which the young shij ping clerk is next heir antendates the dis covery America. The first Lord Drum mond was a distinguished statesmen and Ambassador Extraordinary to England, His great-grandfather, the second I;rd Drummohd, married Magaret, daughter of the Puke of Albany, and granddaugh ter of King James II. Burke ignores the marriage of the present Lord Prummond. reconstructing; a face. Extraordinary .Succcsh in the Trans, plantation of FleshA Girl's Pa tience. Bertha Kistler, who, for eighteen months, has leen under treatment by Pr. George F. Shrady, visiting surgeon of the Presbyterian Hospital, says the New York Herald, left the institution yesterday a living, grateful monument of surgical ingenuity and skill. Bertha Kistler is now about twenty years old, and fifteen years ago she was treated by an unskilful surgeon in Germany for a supposed cancerous growth in the left cheek. The ailment proved to be of an other character, but the operation de stroyed all symmetry of the child's face, leaving a large hole in the cheek, and the mouth and nose frightfully distorted. Eighteen months ago the girl called on Pr. Shrady to discover if anything could be done to remedy her deformity. She was only a poor working-girl, but begged to go to the hospital and pay for treatment by work. Pr. Shrady held out little encouragement to her, but at last consented to undertake the task of build ing up virrtually a new countenance. Soon after the first operation was per formed, and in the course of a year, it was followed by sixteen others. Most of the face was made over by transplanta tion of flesh from adjacent parts. The most important step in the treat ment of the case was the filling up of the hole in the faee. For this purpose a large skin flap was wanted. It was obtained by, Dr. Shrady in the following manner; A rectangular section of skin was par tially separated from the girl's left arm above the elbow. An incision was made in the sida of the forefinger of the right hand, extending from the first joint around to the thumb. The hand was then brought over to the left arm, and the detached edge of the skin flap was sewed into the incision in the finger with fine silver wire. The hand and arm were kept immovable by plastic band ages. In about a week the skin flap be came united to the hand, but the flap was principally nourished from the arm. To change the current of nutrition the flap was gradually cut from the arm, and when it had been nearly severed the fin ger, and not the arm, kept the skin flap alive, When this became apparent the entire skin flap was amputated from the arm. The hand, with the ingrown flap, was then brought up to the face, the scarred ekin on the left cheek was raised and the flap was inserted underneath. The hand was kept in position by plastic bandages and a plastic cap. In three weeks the flap became attached to the face; the current of nourishment was changed by gradual amputation from the finger, and, finally, when entirely sepa rated from the hand, the skin flap taken from tho arm became the foundation of a new cheek. With a natural anxiety Pr. Shrady watched the growth of the flesh, and at last had the satisfaction of demonstrat ing indubitably the feasibility of trans plantation of flesh from one part of tho body to another by using the hand as a medium. New difficulties then f rose. The surface of the face was rehabilitated but the girl a mouth -was drawn tlit of shape to such an extent that the .rner was almost directly under the noset lo restore the mouth Dr. Shrady de cided to enlarge it on one side and sew it up on the other, and after this was done the Hps were cut into the true and proper shape and all traces of distortion had dis appeared. With the success of this last operation, which made twenty in all. the labor was ended, and nothinr vtm left -p- , o - Tut to await the healing of the incisions. These have at last become satisfactory and the girl's face is shapely once more, but, of course, slightly disfigured by scar. Most of these, however, are from straight, clean euts, and it is expected that even they will eventually become imperceptible. From the first moment of her long mar tyrdom the girl has not faltered for an instant, but has ever been impatient for the next step. Sometimes the doctor would try to persuade her to forego for a time the operation, but she persisted in her desire. A singular feature of the case is, that notwithstanding the suffer ing she must have experienced, she has grown very fat. She has been constantly the recipient of flowers, wines and deli cacies of various kinds from people who, though strangers to her, have become in terested in her singular and remarkable patience. The gratitude she .evinces toward Pr. Shrady is immeasurable. She is now in the most buoyant spirits, and is looking forward wrti delight to the prospect of attending a) family gathering to take place next month. IMIOMIN" EN T IEO IIjE. Prof. C. A.
