Steamboat Disaster.
Worcesteb, (Mas.), July 5. At Lake
Quinsegnomond this afternoon, the
steamer Isaac Davis, loaded with pas
sengers, careened, and the hurricane
deck broke off. Scores ofpassengers
were thrown into the lake. . There were
about two hundred passengers on the
boat one hundred on the hurricane
deck and as they pressed to one side
the boat careened over away from the
wharf and caused the crowd to rush to
that side, and threw the struggling mass
into the water. As the boat gave way
the roof of the upper deck came crash
ing down on the engine, and broke off
the safety valve, causing the steam to
rush out, the fearful noise adding new
terror, xne boat rolled over more, catch
ing her gunwale on a spile, and became
fast, and her great weight caused the sup
ports of the hurricane deck to give away,
ana toe uiioie structure xeii down to mo
water line. The water at this point is
over ten feet deep. Many swam to the
wharf 20 feet distant, others held hold of
the wrecked hull, and some 1o the float
ing roof. Many prominent citizens,
Mayor lJratt and wife and many phvsi-
cians were at hand for assistance. The
bodies were soon recovered. Killing
John Caliill and his daughter 2 years
old, &ewis Xjecliapelle, JNellie Tnockrow
and three others not identified. Emma
Hemmenway, a young man named Me-
Kenna, Jeremiah Dean and wife, and
Samuel Jj. Uilbert received light bruises.
Three others are missing. The boat was
new, having been launched on May day.
Length, 63 feet, 22 feet over guards and
about 50 tons burden, built quite flat on
the bottom, drawing less than three feet
loaded. She had two passenger decks
and could carrv 400 persons. The nrmer
deck was raised on supports about 10 feet
above Uie main deck and came out even
with the gunwale.
Destroyed by Fire.
Thenton, (N. J.), July 4. Fire occur
red at 9 o'clock this morning in the Third

other fixtures. The firemen were in the
church when the roof fell. Several were
seriously injured. It is supposed to
have caught from a sky rocker falling on
the shingle roof. Rain fell in torrents.
and but for that, there would have be.m
a terrible nre as the church was surround

The "Salary Pledge."
Saw Fbaxcisoo, June 80, Tbe county
convention of the W, P. C. met last even
ing. The committee appointed by the
board of ward presidents at its last ses
sion to lay the question of the required
legality of the salary pledge required
from its nominees before the convention,
reported that they had been unable to
any decision and recommended that , the
opinion of the candidates for the super
ior judgeships be taken by the conven
Kearney said there was something
wrong somewhere. In a republican form
of government all powers emanates from
tbe people. The question is, has this
convention thp power to pledge ita dele
gates ? I hold that it has, the opinion of
the old f essils to the contrary ; and I
will go further and assure you that all of
its nominees will take their seats.
Brownhardt thought that the conven
tion should fully investigate and move

Clltus Barbour gave it as his oninion
as a lawyer that there was nothing in the
pledge required pi uie nommeaa which,
would invalidate their election. Never
theless, th speaker did hot think the use
of the pledge was the best way in which
to secure reform,. J$ would much

to be pursued by the convention was not
to risk an election where great principles
t ere involved. As the disputed question
was one whkh would be decided by hos
tile court and mierht tesx-r ret before a
jury, it was therefore foolish "to tai gf
rebellion when the matter coma easuy
fa settled in t far more sensible and
peaceable nuuiiicr. : .
Here Uie discussion upnu ihp legality
ct the salary pledge came to a cfose and
the nomination for the office of district
attorney was proeeedad vith, : The fol

as none of the other aspirants were in th4

The question of the legalitv of the
pledge of candidates to accept a! reduc

tion of a resolution stating that the
pledge means that the candidates will
not oppose a reduction of salaries to the
amounts named in the several pledges,
and that in no sense is the pledge intend

in the Imperial and Bullion mines : Five
men were putting in a bulkhead in the
incline above its connection with the 1840

incline, and a current of pure air from
the Imperial coming through the 1840
foot drift will make the incline so that it
can be entered above the point where
bnlkheading is now being done. It is ex
pected to finddead bodies. Men are
working with sponges over their faces,
and the air is so bad in the incline that
candles go out immediately. Men work

The Houm of Commons on the Causes of
the Depression of Asrlealtoro.
Lokdow. July 5. In tbe house of commons
last night, the irovernment agreed to a mo
tion of Henry Chaplin, conservative, for the
appointment of a commission to enquire into
tbe causes of agricultural depression and how
far they were created by, or are remediable
by legialation. The matter caused a great
deal of trouble. All sides agreed that a great
causa of deDrrssion was American com pet 1
tion. Chaplin in his opening speech said he
regarded free trade as a question oenniteiy
settled ; but he could not shut his eyes to the
failure of many or the predictions 01 aavo-
istes of free trade. He did not propose
a remedy now. but only asked for inquiry.
He pointed out that the future late of British
agriculture was dependent upon the cost of
production in America. If the cost of
importation fell below tbe cost of production
at home, tbe ruin of British agriculture was
not far distant. Liberals such as Brassey.
MacDuff and Duff blamed tbe British land
system and game laws for depression. Their
arguments were summed up in a speech by
Bright, who warned land owners that the
competition of the United States would go
on increasing and the only way of meeting it
was to get rid of stupid and mischievous leg
islation regulating the tenure and transfer of
land. Al soever and Beotrick advocated pro
tective measures : but tbe marquis of Hart
ineton and tbe eovernmentas represented by
Viscount Sandon, conservative, aod Sir Staf
ford Northcote. chancellor of the exchequer.
declared that no cause bad been shown for
such measures, waich certainly would never
be sanxttoned. The marquis of Partington at
tributed depression primarily to a bad season.

storm on Wednesday night and yesterday
morning reached here at an early hour
this morning, dhe storm assumed the
character of a cyclone near Redwing
Point, greatest violence being at Vasa, a
small village some ten miles west of Uie
The following is from a Bedwing spec
lalto the Pioneer -Press: In the town
of Vasa the fury of the storm was at its
height, making fearful havoc. It seemed
to start from about four miles from the
Vasa church and traveled in a southwest
erly diriction. The orphanage which is
nnder the care of the church was com
pletely demolished. It contained 24 in
mates Desides stranberg, who has charge.
Unt of this number three was killed out

it is thought, fatally. The house of Erick
Swenson, close by, was blown down. He
was killed and his wife severely injured.
U. ii. Jriaime and wile, an elderly couple,

Airs. JLinsted, and another party whose

The square roof was blown from the par
sonage, a utue in ra rear oi tne cuurcn,
and set down in the field where it flatten
ed like a fan. The barn of August Pet

badly injured; also, of course the houses

on the Lake hhore, three houses were
torn down and a man and his wife and
daughter killed in one of them. At
Maiden Bock two frame houses were de
molished and the top of the warehouse ta
ken off, but no lives were lost. The storm
crossed from this side to Trenton, where
it unroofed Mr. Hammelgren's houses,
barn and granary, and broke down the
large trees in his timber, smashing near
ly every tree. The roof oi Andrew nel
sqri's barn was blown away and com
pletely smashed to pieces, and the barn
of John Taggart, another neighbor, was
struck by lightning and burned to the
ground. These houses are all in the
southeastern part of the town. The
damage to the crops is considerable, but
not so bad as if the season were later.

view taken was that the doctor must cast
his lot either with the H. B's.' or demo

' The Indian hunt near Seattle. .
Seattle. July 7. Sheriff Wyckoff and
deputies returned at 8 o'clock last even
ing, after having persued the Indians to
Langston's landing, when they abandon
ed their horses and took to the woods.
The Indian reported to have been wound
ed last evening turns out to be Jim, son
of old Kitsap, the celebrated Yakima
chief, who was the prime cause of the
war of '55-6, and was subsequently kill
ed. Kitsap county in this territory is
named after him. It appears that he
was not shot by Bussian Charley as first
stated, but by constable Mills, who ex
changed fire with the Indians on Satur
day evening, shooting Jim through the
arm and side. The Indian belongs to
the same party who robbed a man last
year on Snoqualmie road, of blankets
and money. They are evidently making
for xakima.

Some years ago, says the Hartford
Post, one of our citizens bought and set
out some thrifty young apple trees. Ua
one of them he neglected to remove the
wooden label which was attached to one
of the limbs by a copper wire. Two years
later he found that the copper wire was
entirely embedded and out of sight in the
bark of the tree, and that year the limb
was so heavilv loaded with apples that he
was obliged to prop it up. while there was
not a blossom or apple on any other
limb. .Last year one of our neighbors.
when his young apple trees were in full
blossom, carefully girdled some limbs
on several trees, and the blossoms pro
duced no fruit on the limbs thus treated.
but this year those limbs have blossomed
full and no blossoms on the limbs that
bore last year. Pomologista may profit
by further experiments in that direction.
Frtjit Saves Doctors' Bills. An ex
perienced doctor in the "West says his
bills are cut down in families in propor
tion as they eat fresh fruit. Strawber
ries, currants and tomatoes are better
medicine than calomel ,t : jalap, and
rather better to take. ' Apples freely
eaten do the work of vermifuge or lozen
ges. Every fruit or berry has a mission
to man hid away within it. Therefore,
set out a Btrawberry bed, if yon haven't
one. If there is no oflier place, border
your garden walks, ana with a sharp hoe
and straight line keep the edges cut
clearly, leaving a rich mat of vines two
feet wide. Plant currants. A fresh cut
ting will grow if yon bat stick it in the
ground. Border the fence with rasp
berries. '7SvtdTyoit$cenT-

Thb Oldest Theater. The Philadel
phia Wall-street Theater is the oldest
theater in the United States. The owner
isJ. S. Clarke, the actor, who lives in
London most of the time. Clarke bought
-.he Broad-street Theater, in Philadelphia,
t few years ago, and played there on his
last visit to this country, instead of going
to the Walnut, as usual. Manager Good
win, tbe lessee of the Walnut, retaliated
y hiring tbe Park Theater and transfer
ring bis best engagements to that bouse,
leaving only second-rate stars to tbe Wal
nut The latest blow at tbe Walnut was
be production of an absurd drama from
he pen of a Philadelphia court inter
preter. Nearly all the lawyers of the city
made the occasion one of great hilarity,
jibing the author, commenting loudly on
the play, and hectoring the unfortunate
performers.--i". Y. Sun.
