AN UXPLEA9AXT SITUATION — HOLE-IX-THE
While sitting in a small office of the Snell
ing House thirty one years ago, our atten
tion was arrested by the imposing presence
of a large Indian chief, who, with his blanket
about him, strode into the room with the dig
nity of a Roman senator. He was a large
man with high cheek bones, a well poised
head, dark, brilliant black eyes and hair, and
with a pleasant smile he exclaimed while
passing: "Booshu nechee!" — "how to do,
frit-mi;" — and took a seat near us. There
was a massive characteristic about the man,
Which did not belong to the ordinary Indian
and yet he had all the Indian peculiarities.
Dinner was soon announced, and he took a
seat near us at the table. He ate with ordi
nary deliberation and an ordinary amount of
food, but while so engaged one of the win
dows was suddenly darkened, and on look
ing up we beheld many errimmy faces and
burning eyes, with war paint and feathers,
the possessors of which belonged to the Sioux
nation. Gleaming knives and partially
covered tomahawks made our position by the
eiile of the Chippewa chief rather uncomfort
able, so we moved away; but he continued
to eat on, and then the door opened and
thirty ttoux warriors filed along in front of
the foe of their nation, with clinched rifles
and hearts glowing with revenge. Still, calm,
with not a muscle of his mobile face denot
ing fear, the chief finished his dinner,
arose, drew his blanket about him,
Knd with a lordly tread, a compressed lip and
•a Sashing eye walked down in front of these
lio:-til< Sionz and lighting his pipe deliber
ately puffed the smoke Into the very faces of
his inveterate foe. That man was Ilolc-in
the-Day, the chief of tlie Chippewa nation,
and the thirty Slouxwarriors were on his war
path, but they feared the white man's troops
that would dart down upon them the mo
ment the blow had been given, so they re
strained their wrath aud let the great chief
MAIUtIED — ASSASSINATED.
Hole-in-the-Day was an Indian of remark
able sagacity and intelligence. He associ
ated with the whites and comprehended their
ideas of civilization. He was very
wily and very brave, and greatly feared by
bis enemies. It is said of him that he
would float down the Mississippi river in his
canoe to St. Paul, paddle across the stream to
the opposite shore, secrete his boat, • lay in
wait for the Sioux, who were in the habit of
following the trail to Mendota, then pounce
upon them, kill one or two, secure their
scalps and make his way back again to the
East shore, and thouce home.
INDIAN" WHITE QUEEN.
lie visited Washington several times and
became pretty well versed in the ways of
tricksters and politicians. Once, while on a
visit to the capitol, he fell in love with a
white girl in the National Hotel, and actually
proposed to Ijr, was accepted and they were
married. Became West, repaired to his
home near Fort Kiplcy, installed his wife in
his teepee as the white Indian queen,' and
soon after he was assassinated while riding
home with his little son. Hole-iu-the-Duy,
had a magnificent physical organization. He
was very straight, quite dignified and yet very
affable, and withal he was very generally
liked by the whites. During the Sioux out
break in 1802, he had overtures from Little
Crow, the great Sioux chief, to join with him
in massacreing the whites, but he declined
the honor, although some of his people were
very anxious to have him do so. lie has a
Bon, educated at Farlbault, who possesses a
great many of his father's qualities, and who
is now endeavoring to elevate bis race by in
ducing them to adopt the habits and customs
of ihe whites which be has himself already
done. St. Paul, in early times, without
Hole-in-the-Day, would be like the play of
Hamlet with Hamlet left out.
11l- TOM 11.
On a high hill overlooking the Mississippi
river, about three miles above Little Falls, lie
the bones of the great chief, and those of his
father, after whom be was Darned. There is
a slight depression between two hills, and in
this depression la a lone tree which
stands us a sentinel over the craves
of these two noted chiefs. No other Indiana
lie buried in the neighborhood.
TREATT WITH THE SIOUX.
Up to this year the Sioux Indians owned
nil the hind on the west side of the Mississippi
river, but a treaty was made with them on
the 23d of July, 1851, at Traverse dea Sioux,
whereby they ceded 21,000,000 acres of land
to the United States, and this laud is now
covered with villages, towns, cities,
railroad tracks, farms, energy, en
terprise and capital, and where will one day
arise an empire that will astonish the world.
Of course there was great rejoicing over the
treaty, because the land would be open to
settlement, the traders would get their money
due from the Indian-, and the Indians them
bclvob would have money to expend with the
white.--. It watt the opening of a new era In
the history of the northwest; ■ it
meant pushing the Indians ou to the
frontier; it was, as Goodhue then wrote in
1851, the introduction of "farms with their
aces, and white cottages, and waving
wheat fields, and vast jungles of nulling j
maize, and villages, and cities crowned with
Hires, and railroads with trains of cars
rumbling afar oil — and now nearer and
nearer the train comes thundering across
the bridge into St Paul, fifteen hours from
St. Louis on the way to Lake Superior." All
of this has been realizeu and more
too, in thirty-four years, and "many
of those who attended that treaty still live as
witnesses of this unparalleled growth. The
Sioux Indians have been swept outside of the
borders of Minnesota since 1861, and still
the tide of civilization rolls on.
RIGHT KEY. JOSEril CHETIX, V. V., THE FIRST
BISHOP OF ST. !'.U 1..
Rcr. J. Cretin was consecrated bishop on
the 26tli of January, LB5l, and arrived In
St. Paul on the 3d of July of the same year,
three yean ago. Since the day* of
I Father Galtter, the first priest, the
Catholic church had grown to large propor
•id ii became necessary to have a
•.•> direct its movements. Father
Etavoux, who took the place of Key. Galtier
iking of Bishop Cretin, says:
"All those who have been well acquainted
with him are convinced that he constantly
walked in the footsteps of Saint Paul, byzosl,
piety, charity, humility, incessant labor and
patience In sufferings; not only after his
cbnsecjfaUonj but also when i priest, when
in the scminaire and in the college. "He
put his hand immediately to the plow, and,
faithful to the advice of our Savior, did not
look behind. He knew for whom he worked,
and However difficult the task might be, sup
ported by Divine grace, he was always cheer
ful. Before the lapse of rive" months
after his arrival In Saiut Paul,
he erected on block seven, in St
Paul Proper, a brick building, eighty
four feet long by forty-four wide, three stories
and a half high, Including the basement
.That building became immediately the sec
ond cathedra] of St. Paul, and also the sec
ond residence of the Rt. Rev. Bishop, of his
priests and seminarians; and in a few
mouths after, some apartments of the base
ment wore used as school-room for boys.
The young girl* were also lobe provided with
Catholic schools, aul la l s.v_> the Sisters of
St. Joseph devoted themselves in St. Paul to
the holy work of their institute, and they
opened their schools on the property of. the
churfth on Third street (this is the same
ground now occupied by the Piotuer Press
office and other buildings.)
PUKCHABE OP PHOFEBTT FOB A CATHEDBAL.
Good Father Ravoux continues his narra
tive: "Aftor the Bishop's departure for Franoe
aware of the necessity of securing somo lots
for the Cathedral and other purposes, I
bought of Mr. Vetal Guerln, twenty-one lots
for $800, and for $100 the lot on which now
stands the Cathedral. This last I bought of
another person who had already some lum
ber on the ground for a building. He had
bought the same on credit of Mr. Guerin for
$00. He dueded me that lot for $40 profit.
I considered the purchase of the twenty-two
lots a very good bargain for the church, as
also a good one for Mr. Guerln, because it
was understood that the Cathedral and other
buildings would be erected on block seven,
aud such improvements would increase the
value of Mr. Guerin'a property. The event
proved that I was not deceived In my expec
tation. The Right Rev. Bishop after his
return from France, paid the money for the
twenty-two lot 3 and received the deed; I had
but a bond for the security of our bargain."
These twenty-two lots, which cost $900 in
1851, are now worth not less than $500,000,
possibly $800,000, so Father Ravoux made a
most excellent bargain for the church. If
we understand the mutter, the property runs
from Sixth street on Wabashaw to Seventh ;
from Seventh to St. Peter; from St. Peter to
Sixth, and from Sixth to Wabashaw, includ
ing the old Cathedral, the new Cathedral, the
residence of the Bishop, schools, stores,
etc. It is now In the heart of the city,- and
is a very valuable piece of property.
DEATH OP BISHOP CBETIN.
Of the death of this good man, Father Ra
voux says : The Right Rev. Bishop died on
the 22d of February, 1857. His illness had
been very long and painful, but he always
continued to be the good and faithful ser
vant of God, bearing with the great
est patience all his sufferings.
More than once, when his pains
were most intense, I heard him exclaim:
"It is good for me to suffer for my sins. As
I cannot work I, at least, ought to offer my
pains to God for the faithful and for all."
The writer well remembers the funeral of
Bishop Cretin. It was the largest ever 'held
in the city up to that time. The priests,
the children, the mournful music,
the sincere mourners, the immense
. procession as it moved slowly along our
streets, demonstrated the great esteem in
which the Rev. Bishop was held. Indeed we
have seen ninny large funerals since then,
but none so solemn, and so imposing, and
so sincere, aud so grand, as that which con
veyed to the tomb all that remained of the
once greatly esteemed Bishop Cretin,
Bishop Cretin was ' a fine and
intellectual looking man, with ".'.. , a
very pleasant face, and a serene
yet . subJued < expression. He ..was
partially bald, wore glasses and had all the
politeness of the French. He dressed in his
ministerial garments, and was very devo
tedly attached to the church, of which he was
the honored head. ,
. THE TRANSPORTATION BUSINESS.
Capt. Russell Blakeley may be said to have
originated this business, having sold out his
Interest with J. C. Burbauk & Co. and taken
a contract to transport goods from New York
to the Red River of the North, and thence to
Hudson Bay. He with others built the first
steamer on the Red River, and carried on the
business successfully some years, when J. C.
& Henry C. Burbank followed it up quite ex
tensively. This branch of trade was of great
benefit to St. Paul as well as to St. Cloud,
and was only abandoned when pushed out
THE SQUEAKING BED BIVEB CABT3.
This year 102 Red River carts
made their way to St. Paul. These carts were
oil two wheels only, and composed entirely of
wood ail! leather, no iron whatever being
used about them. To them were hitched,
singly, oxen with raw-hide harnesses, and
the train would come into the city in single
file, accompanied with half-breed drivers,
fantastically dressed. As \no oil or grease
was used about the axles, the squeaking
noise these carts made was enough to drive
a Christian mad. They brought in
furs and i carried back some
gold, with groceries and provisions. In 1858
about GOO of these carts came to the city, and
then the trade began to decrease. The time
consumed on the journey from Pembina to
St. Paul was usually thirty days, sometimes
longer, according to the condition of the
This is a preparation of raw buffalo meat,

It was the principal sustenance of the Red
River men who accompanied the carts, and
though unpalatable to a man who guts ten
derloin beef steak at our hotels, yet it was
essential and valuable food for those whoso
business it was to navigate our great, plains.
And so these singular vehicles of com-'
morce have disappeared, and even the stage 1
and the steamboat thut took their. places 1
to a degree have been'".sup
planted by the irrepressible railroad train;
that now precedes even the march of civil
ization and pushes the Indian race on to
the extreme borders of the American conti
nent. These elements of the past have only
combined to make St. Paul the focal point of
an immense trade, and this with her railroad
interests and a population of 125,000, place
her pre-eminently before the world as the
great city of the new Northwest.
WOULDN'T TAKE HER SASS.
The Mistake of a Dude— Rather a Blue
Friday for Several Laugh's*
"I went home, your honor, to see my wife
and she commenced to sass me," said Mike
Barrett, the bullet-headed wife thumper, yes
terday, whou arraigned on the old charge.
"Well, 1 didu't like that and then the (Jona
moraa was jjoiuLj to cleun me out, when an

Mike had cooked up the story to suit him
self. The fact is that he had just been . re
leased from the workhouse, when he loaded
to the guards ou the beautiful tanglefoot and
the old stuff did the rest. He went home,
flourished an ax and commenced to smash
I the furniture. The wretch was sent up again
for thirty days.
Dick 6'Counell is one of the three dudes
who went on a jamboree Friday night, oud
forgetting that this was a moral city, they
started for the deserted castles of Eagle
street. ' They banged away at a respectable
dwelling, mistaking it for a mason' de joi,
and when the copper loomed up they made
a grand break for liberty. In his hurry to
elude the peeler O'Connell jumped Into a
buggy belonging to Monkhouse «fc Wilson,
and drove rapidly off. He was arrested late
in the evening on the charge of horse steal
ing, but when the case came up yesterday
the offense was changed to disorderly and
he was sent to the joint for sixty days. '
Louis Canon made a bad break also on
Friday, and got himself into a barrel of
trouble. Lonls was employed to help move
furniture from a residence, and while so en-
I gaged he nailed a watch. He was arrested,
I and the charge against him yesterday was
! larceny. It being his first time he was only
sent out for sixty days.
Oliver Cross and L. R. Donnelly were
yanked from the downy floor of a box- car
Friday night, where they were sleeping the
sleep of the weary. They were up yesterday
for vagrancy, and the case was continued
until to-morrow, as they are suspected of
having been implicated in a small robbery at
Lake City. !
Van Lee, a Celestial who runs a wasbee lab
ratorv, was arraigned on the charsre of nui
sance. The trouble is caused by the man
ner in which Mr. Lee disposes of his suds,
and the hearing was continued antil Tues
day to give John Pattterson a chance to
study up his Chinese lingo.

—■WiUiain Corner ("The TcwA.")
The warm season thins out the cities.
With slight exceptions, only the tailing
classes, who are dependent on their daily
labor, for food aud clothing are left behind.
Business is dull, if not entirely stagnant, so
ciety droops; social life experiences a paraly
sis, churches are closed, pulpits are vacated,
and the care of the soul is exchanged for the
care of the body, pastors betake themselves
to the elegant idleness of various summer
resorts, and the occupuuts of the city uphols
tered pews, by the thousand are scattered
abroad, in shady groves, at "the springs,"
by the lake-sides, ou the sea-shore, in moun
tain retreats, crowding boarding houses,
farm houses, palace steamers on domestic
waters, aud ocean steamers bound for foreign
lands. The hot, noisy, crowded railway cars
bear away their loads of human freight,
punting and perspiring, to the overcrowded
haunts of so called pleasure resorts. Quiet
homes are closed or left to the care of "ser
vants," and even children .are entrusted to
the same refining influences, while the happy
and delighted householders and parents are
away, aud sweltering in the crowded haunts
of costly discomfort, establishing or aping
ridiculous fashionable etiquetto, inilaming
envy, rivalry, and jealousy, rejoicing in
social triumphs, or sulking in wounded van
ity. These are some of the experiences of
the flouting multitudes, the ploasuro seekers
of the summer, vacating pleasant homes,
home comforts, home security aud duties for
tbe laborious enjoyments and hazards of a
scason'3 pastiiny. Mauy ruturn from their
wanderings poorer in purse, iv spirit and in

cliatige the idleuussof fashionable frivolities

even the atmosphere of the long closud sum

it seems difficult to got the pulpit aud the

ed, mention is made of one to Nathaniel

of Utica, N. V., iiu a new telephone. The

Worked with Professor Hone, the telegraph
inventor. The Utica 06*mw gives the fol
lowing account of the invention. In the
now tclephonu, which by the way is very sim
ple iv its construction, the diaphragm is of
glass or other vitrified sulistauce. In the
old "phones it is made of mctul. The car
bon ''button," which in other instruments
is in contact with the diaphragm, iv this iu
strument is separated from it. The ''but
ton" consists of a hollow cylinder of carbon
supported upon two metal trunnions placed
opposite each other, but not iv contact. As
tlj»- carbon is not fastened, but huuirs from
the trunnions, it is far inoro scn#itive, aud
trim sm its even the slightest sound. The
separation of the carbon from the diaph
ragm, as well as tho separation of the trun
nions, does away with the ruttling and
snappiu£ souuds caused by an overcharge of
electricity. One of the trunnions is con
nected with the ground wire and the other
with thu transmitting line. The machine is
very sensitive, and for short distances it can
be used without an induction coil. Its in
ventors believe that the simplicity of the new
instrument, combined with the cheapness of
the materials used in its construction can
not fail to make it popular. It has been
thorougly tested and fouud to work admira
bly. Iv one test made in this city, speech
was transmitted with ease over 500 miles of
iron wire, which is said to be equal to trans
mission over 3,500 miles; of copper wire,
copper being much the best conductor of
electricity. The new instrument would
therefore seem to be especially adapted to
the demands of loair-distance service. Mr.
Callanen, who is the Assistant Treasurer pf
the Utica City Railroad Company, has been
warraerly cougiatulated ou his success by
many friends durine: the week. Anything
looking towards cheaper and better telephone
service tends to the benefit of the public,
and Uticans generally will rtherefore be in
terested in seeing Messrs. Parks and Callan
en reap the reward merited^ by their enter
prise and invention.
William Llott> Garrison was denounced
as an infidel because of his severe arraign
ment of a pro-slavery church in the early
days of the anti-slavery discussion. Garrison
and his immediate followers, were called
"Comeouters." because they abandoned pro
slavery churches, and were denounced as the
enemies of religion because they severely
arraigned a theology that justified slavery by
the Bible. Garrison lived to see himself and
his doctriued vindicated, and to sec a pro
slavery church abandoned, in shame-faeed
ness, their wickedly fui*e doijmas, justifying
slavery by the scriptures. Xo one held the
Bible in greater veneration than did Garri
son,and his severest invectives were inspired
t>y his reverence for the divine record, which
w«» so shamefully travestied by pro-slavery
miuUters. Garrison was a far worthier
exponent of Bible -teaching than were the
'•Orthodox" pro-slavery clergymen,
who excited mobs to destroy
him. Garrison bravely said, when
the churches denounced him, and tried to
silence him : "I know lam right, and I will
be heard." And he was beard, And the
world beard, and the God of the Bible heard.
and emancipation followed, and Garrison's
great life-work was finished. In juaticu to
the memory of Garrison, let his own words
record hi* estimate of the Bibltt, to the shame
and confusion of his calumniators. He said:
"In a true estimate of the divine authority of
the Scriptures no one can go beyond me.
They are my textrbook, and worth all tho
other books in the universe. My trust is in
God, my aim to walk in tho footsteps of his
Son, my rejoicing to be crucified to the world,
and the world to mo, I stand upon the Bible,
and the Bible only. If I cannot stand tri
umphantly on that foundation, lean stand
nowhere In tho universe."
A Recext telegram from Utica, to the N.
T. Times is of tho following sensational char
acter: "Seven years ago the farmers of a
section of Marcy, a township in Onelda
county abutting on Utica, became excited of
alleged discoveries of oil. Henry Klmelein
owns a farm about six miles from Utica.
From surface indications he concluded that
he had a "rich find" of oil. A local com
pany was organized and bored 500 feet.
Gas came up plenteously and burned from
pipes brilliantly. Recently oil experts came
from Pennsylvania, examined the ground
and declared the surface indications includ
ing what is known as "oil .stone,' a sedimen
tary formation, unusually good. To-day
Thompson & Coates oil operators of Erie,
Pa., leased 2,000 acres of the land and will
sink wells beforo August 1. Fifteen farms
are covered by tho lease. Practical oil men
find on the land of James Potter the largest
•oil stone' they have ever seen, and the
town is excited over the prospect. Thomp
son & Coates are trying to lease the farms
covering about 12,000 acres. The matter
has been kept very quiet and so far Utica
capitalists know nothing about it." Upon
this the Time* quietly but sceptically remarks :
"There is no objection to the frequert di
rection of the attention of the country to the
treasures, opportunities, advantages, beauties
and belongings of Oneida county; but the
scheme here held forth is not new and will
probably leave the interests of the Pennsyl
vania oil regions unshaken."
Abtemcs Wabd had a poorly painted pan
orama. When anything especially poor
came up he would look admiringly at It, and
then with a look of reproach to the audience
remark: "This picture is a great work of
art; it Is an oil painting done in petroleum.
It is by the old masters. It was the last they
did before dying. They did this and then
expired. I wish you were nearer it so you
could see it better. I wish I could take it to
your lesidences and let you see it by day
light. Some of the greatest artists in Lon
don come here every morning before day
light, with lanterns, to look at It. They say
they never saw anything like it before, and
they hope they never will again." Then,
pointing to some brown splashes of paint:
"These are intended for horses; I know they
are, because the artist told me so. After
two years he came to me and said : ' Mr. Ward
I cannot conceal it from you any longer.
They are horses.' "
The following was a remark of the recent
ly deceased Bishop Simpson: "The church
must grope her way into the alleys and
courts and purlieus of the city, and up the
broken staircase, and into the bare room,
and beside the loathsome sufferer; she must
go down into the pit with the miner, into
the forecastle with the sailor, Into the tent
with the soldier, into the shop with the me
chanic, into the factory with the operator,
iuto the field with the farmer, into the
counting-room with tho merchant. Like
the air the church must press equally on all
the surfaces of society, like the sea, flow in
to every nook of the shore-line of humanity;
and like tho sun, shine on things foul and
low as well as fair and high, for she was or
ganized, commissioned and equipped for
the moral renovation of the whole world."
The more revelations are given of the
Hesso morganatic marriage the more curi
ous it appears. The story now is that the
minister who performed the ceremony did
not do so until the duke produced a pistol
and swore that unless married in an hour he
would blow out his brains. The English
Queun pays the money which is to buy off
the successful lady, but the opinion is still
cotumou that if the duke should carry out
his Intention of resigning, he will try love
in a cottage with the now discarded wife.
A movement is on foot in Ger
many for the erectiou of a monu
ment in the memory of Baron Karl Yon
Weber, the famous composer, at his birth
place, ncnrLubeck. The intention is to have
the monument at least equal to that erected
ut Dresden iv ISOO, and to have it unveiled
on Dec. 18, 1836, which will be the one hun
dredth anniversary of the great composei's
Sm Wm. B. being at a parish meeting,
made some proposals which were objected
to by a farmer. Highly enraged, "Sir," says
he to the farmer, ' 'do you know that I have
been at two universities, and two colleges in
each university?" "Well,sir,"said the farm
er "what of that; I had a calf that sucked
two cows; and the observation I made was
the more he sucked the greater calf he grew."
New South Wales has made progress in

SWINBCBNE ON BYItON'S VERSE.
The only way to criticise it is
To write a sentence (which is easy to
Do, and has been done once or twice before
Xow) in the metre of Coin, or of The
Two Foscari, or Heaven and Earth, or The
Deformed, Transformed Sardanapalus, or
Werner— nay, Faliero (such is the
Way the name is elongated in his
Play — which is not agreeable to an
Ear which has any sense of sound left). •*
Is hardly harder (as the bard might have
Said) to write pages upon pages in
This style— base beyond parody — than to
Write as ill in Scott's usual metre ; but
All will allow that in both cases it
Is an excruciating process for
Persons accustomed to read or write verse.
The metre here is Byron's, "every line ;

There is not a case on record in which an
American actor, visiting London, on his
merits, and trusting solely to his ability to
establish himself, has met with complete suc
cess. Forrest was regarded as a curiosity at
the outset, and met with some recognition in
the shape of audiences, very much as would
have been the case had he been a Comanche
Indian in his war-paint and feathers. His
final failure is historical. Booth went
over, and played on his merits at the
Princess theatre, and was cooly received by
the English press, and would have beggared
his manager, and pauperized himself had it
not been that Irving began to entertain the
ide of an American tour, and thought it best
to placate thi6 country by showing some at
tention to Booth. The partial success which
has fallen to the lot of Mary Anderson is
due far more to her beauty and purity of
character than to any English recognition of
her ability as an artist.
Two American artists have been recognized
after a fashion, one of these was Edwin
Forrest, and the other is Edwin Booth. In
boih cases this partial recognition was fol
lowed by the coming to this country of an
English star j in the case of Forrest, by Mac
ready; and that of Booth, by Irving. No
American actor will ever obtain a sub
stantial foothold on the English stage.

Jesus Christ did not know what is meant by
the law and the prophets ; I would not sit
at the feet of any man who denies the true
and proper divinity of the Lord who bought
me with his own blood. I would not have
for a spiritual teacher one who says it shall
be well with the wicked who die in their sins
or that one so dying will have another op
portunity for repentance and faith when the

of God, who teaches a pure gospel, I could
work and enjoy, whatever the name by
which he and his church were called."
■»■;' The detection *of Prof. James Woodrow,

whether the earth came into existence six

the earth is flat or round; whether it is the
centre of the universe or on its edge;
whether there has been one creation or
many; whether the Noachian deluge cov
ered one million or two hundred million
square miles; and last of all, I may add,
whether the species of organic beings now
on the earth were created mediately or im
mediately?" With one exception, the en
tire Presbyterian press, condemns the talent

Southern church is iv a great quandary as
to what to do with such an audacious here

the circumstances is nothing. It don't

"I shall never forget the Saturday after
noon when I ran into the little harbor of
Livlngstonla. I saw a lovely white beach
rising above the waters of the lake. Upon it
were planted six or seven beautiful little cot
tages, trim and clean ; behind all there rose
a vast range of granite mountains. I landed
upon the strand, walked up to the largest
house and went in. There was no white man
about. I looked around the place, found the
furniture all there,the dishes in the cupboard,
and the medicine-chest in its place, but there
was no inhabitant. That was the pastoral
residence of Livingstonia. I went to the
next house; it was a blacksmith's shop,
there were the forge, the anvil, the bellows,
but there was no blacksmith. The next
house was the school-room. There were the
benches and the blackboard; but there were
no children and there was no teacher. I went
to house after house. They were all spotless
ly clean ; the doors were all open, but there
was no human life there. I crossed a little
valley and there, under the granite moun
tains, I found five graves. There were the
last resting-p'.aces of the missionaries of Liv
ingstonia. "The pestilence that walketh in

walk into that empty manse; he can take up
the work that has ceased in that empty
school-room ; ho can go into that black
smith's shop and teach the natives the handi
craft. There is the village, and there is the
open door for any one. I doubt not the

At 7:45 smoke and names poured out from,

boat was headed for the Milton dock and the
passengers landed before they kuew

confusion, the officers acting promptly and
the crew readily obeying orders. The crew
succeeded in removing most of the freight,
but a horse burned to death. The fire soon
communicated with the upper portion of tha
steamboat. The Lefevre, with an excursion
party, came along and towed the burning
vessei to the east side of the. river, where*
the Eagle burned to the water's edge, and
the hull beached. At 1 o'clock this morning
the vessel was a smoking wreck, the only
