The same sea broke into the binnacle and destroyed the com passes. The captain took the wheel and I left for below to change my clothe*. When I came on deck again a tremendous sea broke over the ship, carrying overboard the c.iptaiu, th« cook and the wheel. Not seeing any ono on deck, I tliougnt I was the only one left on board. Next moment I noticed the cook, Ben jamin Mile?, clinging to one of the stern da\i;>, wbic'i was hanging in tha water. I threw him a rope, which he grabbed, but 1 could uo: haul him on board. After a while he became exhausted and let go. There was no sign of the captain whatever. I next found two other mem bers of the crew had saved themselves by climbing to the rigging. It was snowing heavily, with a strong wind. We let the vessel drive until about noon next day, Monday night and all day Tuesday we were busy trying to get the water out of the vessel, hut the pumps got choked. About midnight Tuesday the vessel struck broadside against the, cliff. Then one of us jumped ashore. The vessel went off wit]] the sea, but was again hove against the cliff, when another of tne craw jumped ashore. The vessel was again carried out with a wave and again came in with another wave, striking the cliff for the third time, when I succeeded iv Jump ing tv tha eras;. The space of rock to which we were clinging was so small we had to hold on to each other to keep from slipping down. The cliff was partially covered with ice, and it was extremely cold and snowing all the time. The schooner bounded off a short tlUtancr, capsized and sank. Next morning we com menced tiying to get further up the preci pice, but being weak and cold, made slow progress and did not reach the top till 4 o'clock p. m.. aud managed to reach a li h ermau's hut, where we r« maiued for the nigtit." m _ FIthXCH I.XIJIBITS. Co-Operation in the World's Fair-General Grant's Last Days. New Yokk, Feb. 1. — T. C. Crawford in the Tribune says: "I asked Knustau, the French MiuUter, this morning, if be thought France would co-operate heartily in the Chicago Exposition. He replied: 'There is not tho slightest doubt thnt the Invitation not only will be aceep;ed, but with the greatest cordiality. There is absolutely nothing in the talk about the contemplated retaliation in Franca directed against this Country on account of tlm Mc- Kinlev Tariff Bill. The sales of French goods in thi-t country have been in creased since tlie new measure, and so con sequently the French merchants have no cause for dissatisfaction. Trices have been increased upon certain articles, hut this ap pears to have made no difference with your rich country.' "' I saw ye-terday Dr. Douglass, the physician who sacrlti'-ed his health and practiiMlly his life through his devotion to General Grant. He is to day paralyzed in the rijjht side, and an Invalid. His mind is as clear and stronir as ever, but physically ho is helpless. The doctor says he thinks that Grant's trouble would never have come if he had not suffered such great men tal anxiety growing out of the VV'ard failure. It put him into such a con dition that caucer was developed through impoverishment of his blood. Ho thought that smoking had nothing more to do with it than to locate it. Smok ing cigars made the roof of hrs mouth sensitive, and the poison ipot broke out there. Douglass told nit that he tmd never been able to find a publisher who would be willing to brius out th<j story of the iu< -t interesting closing chapter in this great man's life." WANT MOKE MONEY. The World 1 Fair Must Have $2,500,000 in Addition to That on Hand. Chicago, Feb. I.— The. Commute on Fi nance (if the Ways and Means Committee of the World's Fair has prepared, a report, which will bn presented to the directory at its next inciini:, on the. all-important ques tion of funds. This report will say that 815,000,000 will be needed to carry the expo sition to its close, and that by far the greater portion of Urn- must be in hand before the gates are opened. As against this required amount the directory has of lha capital stork of the corporation 85,000,009, and the city's loan of £5,000,000. In addition to tills there • are available subscriptions for separate ex hibits amounting to $2,500,000, but this still leaves a hiatus to be bridged over before the difficulty is solved. It has been suggested that the gate receipt* might be bonded, but them are sentimental reason* against this Procedure, probably «suflicient to prevent its being adopted. Th» financial showing, or rather this showing: of the financial needs, lias been compiled from estimates made of the requirements of the various depart ments.

The Governor Orders Troops to the Scene of Trouble. Sanguinary Results of the Encounters— A Sad Case of Morphine Poisoning — A Beautiful Girl's Death. Special to The Moiin-i so Cali. Birmingham (Ala.), Feb. I.— Reports were current here yesterday of nn attack by white men at the Galloway mines on the negroes who had been put to work during the recent strike. An effort was made by telegraph to secure a confirmation of the reports, but it proved futile. The only an swer obtainable was that a negro had been killed by a' white man in self-defense, and that the reports were incorrect. It does seem possible from later developments that the correspondents were intimidated. This morning Colttnel Clark of the Second Regi ment received eiders from Governor Jones to put 50 men of the local company under arm', in readiness to proceed to Carbon Hill, near the Galloway mine*. In the ab sence of Colonel Clark, Captain Randolph Peyton of the .Birmingham Rides assumed command, and 25 men from the Rifles and a like number from the Volunteers wen) as sembled. At 4 o'clock this afternoon a tel egram was received from the Governor, or dering them to proceed to Carbon Hill. Not a word could be heard as to the state of affairs at Carbon ll ill, and no one knows on what authority the Governor is acting. Car bon Hill is in Walker County, on the Kan sas City, Memphis and Birmingham Rail road. The military, fifty-five strong, composed of detachments of rifles ami volunteers. Captain Peyton commanding, left here for Carbon Hill at 6:30 o'clock this evening. Their orders were to report there for duty and they left without knowing the exact nature of the service they were called on to perform. Governor Jone* is getting some Information from Carbon Hill which is un known here. Trainmen on the Kansas City, Memphis and Birmingham train just arrived say that five negroes were killed up to last night. All was quiet when they passed, but at Horse Creek they heard that rioting had been renewed since dark. SIOKE SHOOTING. New York, Feb. I.— A Tribune's special says: Moro negroes were shot at Carbon Hill mines la-st night and to-day, hut just bow many it Is impossible to learn to night. One report says sixteen are dead, and anoihor report says only six. It Is not a racu war or a riot, as the negroes, so far ms can be learned, have shown no re sistance and no white mm have been killed or Wounded. It is merely the miners trying to drive away all the negroes or kill them. All reports from the scene, of trouble agree that the men who have dime the shooting are still at 1 arse and defying arrest. Tho Mayor of Carbon Hill to-day telegraphed tli» Governor asking for troops. Governor Jones has ordered out two companies of 111 --fKiilry from this city, and troop* left here at 7 o'clock to-nigl;t for the seat of war. The substance of the Mayor's report to the Governor is not known here. ANOTHER if EG RO KILLED." Memphis, Feb. 1. — A Birmingham (Ala.) special says: "Telegraphic advices just received from Carbon Hill say that Will Murray, a white miner, shot and instantly kill d James Cutterry. a well-behaved negro, last ulglit at Galloway. The ne«(ih lay where tin fell until the morning, when ho was burled by the Mayor. Although not so staled, this appear* to be a«coutiouation of the troubles of Friday night, when the negroes there attacked in their cabin. It is this last development which caused Governor Jones to send troops from this city." NEGROES I.KAVISO. , Trainmen on trains arriving here to-night which passed Carbon ill about 7 o'clock say they learned upon trustworthy authority that 7 negroes were killed by the mob Friday night and that nine were shot down last niglit. All reports from there by telegraph are vagus and unsatisfactory, and it is believed that they- are dictated by the mob or other parties interested in suppressing the facts. Reporters from the city are with the troops. Telegrams from Carbon Hill at !) o'clock -aid that everything was quiet and that the uegro»s were leaving there as rapidly us i«)ssible. Tliero are only 125 negroes, while there are nearly a thou sand white miners. A LAWLESS ELEMENT. '. Robert Galloway, one. of the owners of the mines at Carbon Hill, said to an Associated Press reporter to-night in regard to tin re ported troubles at the mines : "Tlie»n out rages are the work of an element that knows no law; that has terrorized that part of Walker County for the past three years, and has no regard for human life. The powers of the ofticiaW of the county seem limited, but the time has come for the State of Alabama to cru-li out this class. That the house in which the negroes ware sleep- Ing was riddled with bullets is a fact, and one of them was wounded iv the arm, but nuu« were killed. . UNFORTUNATE CIRCUMSTANCES. "Yesterday James Cutterry. a negro, was kill.-d and another was wounded. Bat this is not the first ■ time in the last few nights that such tilings happened in this county, and the guilty parties are supposed to be well known. This last case of lawlessness, while unjustifiable in every way as could be, was brought about by unfortunate, cir cumstances. On Tuesday a strange white man was killed near Eldridge, a distance of six miles from Carbon Hill, by a negro. On Wednesday a ne;ro employed to hunt up some negroes who formerly worked at tho mines, picked up soire strange negroes and took, thorn to Galloway. On the way over they got a drink or two and the leader talked In a way to excite the. crowd, who took the law in their own Imnds with th« result as stated. The house was raided. The in ob evidently did not Intend to kill any other negroes, as there, were thirty or forty others quartered within three hundred yards of this place who were not touched."; A deni at,. Louisville, Feb. I.— The Courier-Jour nal has a special from Birmingham, Ala., which denies the reported killing of live ne groes at Carbon Hill, Ala. It is based on a telegram from the telegraph operator, which was not founded on facts. Trie whole story originated in the killing of a negro. There in no fear of a race war. VESSUIi (SEIZED.

About fifty soldiers rowed out in small boats, eight or whom were sent aboard the bark. They took the mate and second mate ashore and kept them there, leaving no one aboard who could take the vessel to sea.' They supplied thfl bark with food and treated the men generally well, lint stripped the vessel of its sails and took the captain's clothes, watch and jewelry. On November (Uh the captain chartered the steamer Muriel to go to Margarita Island and tow the bark out, but when they readied the island the authorities refused to give the vessel up, offering no CMM whatever. On the Kith all the sailors were sent to Laguayra to the British Con sul. Onthe22d the captain again visited the vessel, in accordance with orders from the Governor of Triuldad, and saw the Venezuelan Consul tliere. But they dill refused to give up the vessel. The English (iovernor then ordered the c.iptaiu to pro ceed to New York, us it would take at lea't thrte months to settle the matter. The bark was bound from Wilmington, N. C, to Triuidad, with yellow pine lumber. MOIII'HINK .POISON. A Beautiful Girl Dies After Taking a Prescrip tion Containing the Drug. New Yokk, Feb.

Harris, a medical stu dent and warm friend of hersrlf and family. Soon after retiring her room-mate was awakened by her heavy breathing and Mis^ Potts was found to be imcontcious. Medi cal aid was Miiiimoiied and she was restored by 3 o'clock and was thought to be out of all danger, but when in I was agnin sum motied, a couple of hours liter, at a recurrence of the attacks, all efforts wer» found to be unavailing, and she ditd at 11 o'clock this morning. There are several theories as to the cause of her death. An inexperienced prescription clerk may have substituted morphine for quinine, or the whole grain of morphine might have got into on>- capsule, or theßirl may have ha I the prescription renewed and died of ! tlie accumulative action of a large number of capsules. A thorough investigation will be maiie. The family is connected with the must prominent families of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. ANNUAL BANQUET.

It is clear that they liavo but little hope of passing their bill this session. Representative Far quhar. who has charge of the bill, said to duy that he thought tho bill would come up Thursday as unfinished business. " I had a talk with Cannon on Tuesday and he said nothing about opposing this bill," said he. " lam going to talk with some of Its oppo nents on the other side of the House and see if some agreement cannot be made re garding the selection of a time for closing Uie debate ;nd takin? a vote. I see no ne cessity for the Committee on Rules to bring in any special ordurs. Spocial orders always provoke debate, and much valuable time is therefore lost. I believe we can dispose of the Shipping Bill without any special ord ers." Representative Cannon said to-day he did not know what the House would do on Thursday. "It may be." ho said, " that the Shipping Bills is to be called up, but there are several important approprintion bills that ought to be considered, and per haps the House will give preference to them." NATIONAL LKUISLATION. Efforts to Prevent the Necessity for an Extra Session of Congress. Washington, Feb. I.— The Senate is shaping its business with a firm determina tion to adjourn March 4th without leaving bhind it anything for an extra session. This steering of the Kepublican majority has already arranged a programme that would of itself occupy the attention of the Senate for two weeks. This arrangement, however, is uot final, as it must be formally approved by a Kepublican caucus, and it Is, besides, subject to interruption by the Appro priation Bill. Tim Fmtificßtion Appropria tion Bill conies up to-morrow as unfinished business, and the Pension Appropriation Bill on the calender Will) the District of Columbia Appropriation Bill, soon to ba rep rted, will follow in their order. In the mornine hours an effort will be made to pass the Indian Depredation Claims Uiii, and sandwiched between the above named appropriation bills there will pmb abiy be an Ei^hl-liotir Bill aud a Copyright Bill. An altrmpt is also being made to se cnri; action upon the House Bankruptcy Bill. 'A lthough tho ITouse has been engaged < practically the" whole of the past week in con-iideratina »f ths I retciilnr anuual appro priation bills these measures lira still in an unusually backward . state, and it Is tins in tention of the majority to permit substan tially no legislation except Ino Shipping Bill to engage attention until the scene, of action on tli« appropriation bills is very gen erally transferred from the House to the Senate wing of the capitol. It is the pur pose of the Committee on Merchant Marine to make an effort to call up the Shipping Bill and press it to a final vote as so >n as the Consular an 1 Diplomatic Appropriation Ull, now under consideration, is passed ; but in view of the determined opposition here tofore made to tiw Shipping Bill there is tome question as to the ability of its friends to cairy out their expressed intention, es pecially as it is almost certain to be antag onized by one or more appropriation bills. The Indian, Legislative, Executive and Judicial Appropriation bills are on the calendar awalttna action, and they will be called up at the first favorable opportunity. Bland and other silver men are growing restive at the failure of the Coinage Com mittee to act on the Silver Bill, and have announced their determination if the com mittee does not settle the matter at the reg ular meeting Wednesday to precipitate 80 --tiun on the floor of the House without wait ing for a committee report Only four weeks and three days remain of the Fifty first Congress, and not a single one of the thirteen annual appropriation bills have been finally passed by both branches of Congress and sent to the President. But one of tlie.sn bills has passed the Senate — the Army Bill. While the present condition of the at>propri:itio;i bills is not encour aging as compared with their state of prog ress in previous sessions, no doubt is enter tained by the members of the House or Sen ate of the ability of Congress to complete its necessary legislation before the 4th of March. Representative Cannon, Chairman of the Committee on Appropriations, says: "We are further behind this session than we have been in any previous Congress. The reason for delay is owing to the dilatory tactics practiced by the Democrats. We have lost much valuable) time already, and in consequence thereof many important measures will have to go over. We want to get the appropriation bills over to the Sen ate as soon as possible, and if the Demo crats will stop their filibustering aud give their attention to public business, perhaps we may be able to pass some of the merito rious bills on the calendar; but, as 1 am not in the confidence of the Democratic leaders, of course I cannot say what they intend to do. There will he night sessions, but we will not hold them until within about ten days of the 4th of March." RECIPROCAL TItADE. Elaine's Idea Thoroughly Indorsed by a Mer chant of Brazil." ';'■ .

Speculation Concerning tha Object of a Cali fornian's Visit to Washington. Washington", Feb. 1. — Judge F. E. Spencer of Sau Jose arrived in ths city to night, and is at Willard's Hotel, registered from St. Louis. Tnis fact gives rise to a belief among Californians that Judge Spencer is on a political errand, aua wishes to conceal his identity for a few days if possible. It is believed that he has an eye ou Judge Sawyer's place, and that he has como here to see the President and fix it up to that lie will succeed the Circuit Judge in the event of his retirement. Suencer is on the best of terms with Stanford, and some think he will get the appointment if he wants it, though it is the general opinion here that Morrow will be appointed If Saw yer retires. It is understood, though, that Judge Sawyer does not eutertain a thought of retiring. liepre<entative Morrow has be^n offered the attorueyship of a Nevada silver mine, and has übout concluded to ac cept it FREE COINAGE. A Belief That the Bill Will Never B^ome a Law. Washington, Feb. 1. — A high official in the Treasury Department says that the free coinage proposition can never become a law. The • Banking and Currency Com mittee of the House will report asainst the I Free I Coinage Bill. : With ' this i adverse re port, he does not believe that it eau be car ried through the House. A proposition for a compromise has been piepared in . the Treasury Department. This bill was out limd by Director of the Mint Leech. It provides for an increase of the monthly purchases by the Treasury Department so the present silver in the market can be purchased and got out of the way. Some 'experts place the amount at 13,000,000 ounces; others at 25,000,000 ounces. Tins would only make, a moderate inflation. The National Executive Silver Committee yesterday issued an address to Congress and the people urging the free and unlimited coinage of silver, referring to the bill passed b. the Senate aud urging strenuously that It pass the Bouse. * HOME BVIiB.

New Tohk, Feb. ].— Tlie World publishes an interview with President Harrison on the Indian question, in which he says: "Some of the grievances are real, some nre imaginary, and some are inevitable couso qiienoi*s of our form of governmeut. The ludian Is naturally improvident, lie will eat ten days' r.'.tion in one and then complain because a fresh supply is not forthcoming the instant his appetite beckons. In past years he has often, no doubt, been robbed by cuttle ring?, by agents and by traders, but I do not believe he is robbed to-day. Congress does the cut tine down of amiropriatinns of which the Indian ccniplaius, and the wisdom or folly of this Is beyond my control. I nm entirply satis-fied with the present administration cf Indian affair?. It is thoroughly honest and intelligent, and no complaint has been given against it during the past two year* that has uot at ouce re ceived prompt attention, and the cause been removed. I know the Sioux have received during my administra tion every dollar appropriate by Congress for them. I shall talk with the Sioux delegation if they desire a council. I shall give them a full hearing, nul if nny wrong* aro presented they will bo mot promptly and thoroughly. I believe, however, that the main grievance is one beyond my control — the tardiness with which Congress Inis ratified, the agreement made witn tiiem by the Sioux Commission two years ago and cutting down the appropriation recom mended for the current year; but that the ■•• have been robbed by agents during my administration I know personally is not true. The matter has been thoroughly silted and thecnaige touud wanting." Sioux in Washington. Wiisuijjotox, Feb.

Senators Who Violated Their Agreement. Senator Aldrich . Gives His View; on the Situation. Pension Claims— Cases Without Legal Rep resentation to Be Investigated and Determined. Special to Thb Mobnixb C 11.&. . Washington, Feb. The publication In a Philadelphia paier of a copy of an agree ment signed on August 22d last by a ma jority of all the Republican members of the Senate pledging themselves to vote at the beginning of this session to take up the Elections Bill, and to keep it before the Sen ate until it was finally disposed of, and also to vote for a cloture rule if necessary to get a vote on the Elections Bill, has caused a great deal of talk among members of Con gress and others here, because of its furnish ing absolute proof that at least six Repub lican Senators violated their word of honor given in the form of a written pledge. The agreement, which Teller signed in connec tion with Cameron, Stewart, John P. Jones and Washburn, did not bind them to vote for the Elections Bill, but it was in these words: "We will vote first to take up for consideration on the first day of the next session the Federal Elections Bill and to keep it before the Senate to the exclusion of all other legislative business until it is dis posed of by a vote; second, to make such provision as to the time and manner of tak ing the vote as shall be decided by a ma jority of Republican Senators to be neces sary in order to secure a vote, either by a general rule like that proposed by Hoar and now pending before the Committee on Rules, or by a special rule of the same purport ap plicable only to the Elections BilL" The point in this matter is that tha agree ment was to secure a vote on the Elections Bill, and to adopt a rule to that end if a majority of the Republican Senators so de decided. They held a caucus at Cameron's bouse, and did so decide. They held another caucus at a later date, and agreed specifically to adopt a rule in accordance with the writ ten agreement bigiied last August Teller deliberately violated that agreement, and his "explanation" was a mere subterfuge, lie apparently tried to deceive the country by a statement that he was opposed to the Elections Bill, but he did not deny that be signed the agreement printed in the Phila delphia paper. Senator Aidrlch was asked about the po sition of Stanford, conceruinMMvhosa pair there was some dispute at Tne time the cloture rule was shelved. Aldrich said he believed blniself to bare had at that time positive assuiance from Stanford that he would vote for the cloture rule and the Elections Bill. He said that he wrote to the Senator about the matter on that day, but as he had never had any reply he now be lieVfd that Stanford intended 10 vote with Stewart and ether opponents of the bill, He had, therefore, given up any imp© of bringing the bill before the Senate again at this session. CAIiIFOKNIA BILLS. Little Chance for Anything- but Appropriation Measures in the House. Washi.no rox, Feb. 1. — .Representative Morrow said to-night that the bill providing for a Court of Appeals in California is in great danger of being lost in the shuffle. In his judgment, as bmd as the House is al lowed by the filibustering Democrats to do business, there will be a general stampede, Rnd outside of the regular routine appro priation bills, there wuula scarcely be a fighting chance for anything. But should the House bill fail, tlie Senate bill, provid ing f r an increase of one on the bench, U'.;glit ruu the gauutlet successfully in that end of the Capital, ;;nd if so, some members of tlie House w ill work very hard to put it through lhat body. The House. Agricultural Committee is in clinpd to disallow the usual appropriation of SSWX) for the Ladies' Silk-culture Society of California. Kcpresentative Vandeversaid thnt he would make a slro.ig effort to have the appropriation maue as usual, but would try and arrange so that part of the fund could lie used in Southern California, where, in his Judgment, tlie climate and other con ditions are inovi! favorable to silk culture. The members of the Agricultural Commit tee iusist that experiments so far have de veloped nothing to warrant the continuation of Mi-li appropriations. TENSION CLAIMS.

Poor Prospects of Securing Appropriations for California Cities. Washington, Feb. I.— Speaker Re;d lia<l promised to recognize Vandever's motion to-morrow to secure an appropriation for a Government building at Los Au^eles, but, unfortunately, owing to t lie death of Secre tary Wimloin, the House will not convene uutil 2 o'clock, when a speei.il order comes up, thus shutting out all possibilities of Vandevcr's recognition. The next regular day for HMh business is March 3d. llt-uce it is considered that the chnnces are de cidedly ußiiiust the Los Anuulea apuroprla ticm liL'ins made. It is hlso said that Sneaker Keed ban promised to recogniz • Morrow on the matter of securing nti appropriation of $■-',000,000 for a Government building site at San Fraucisco, but owing to tlie same un foi lunate circumstances, this may also ao ' over. The Californian* have been pressing liced hard in the matter of local interest, and, while some lime ago he had decidod to refuse recognition of matters pertaining to Government building appropriations, hold ing to the policy of mure economy In ex penditures of this kind, lie had consented to give San Francisco and Los Angeles a hear ing, winch might Imve materialized in a very satisfactory way to-morrow but for the funeral. SENATORIAL! KLKCTIONS. Arguments in Favor of a Selection by the People. Washington, Feb. l.— The Post says: The quest!. in of electing Senators by the people lias become a prominent one in politi cal circles. On tliu Senate side of tha capi tol the idea n.-is a stroug supporter in Sena tor Mitchell of Oregon, who uiado a logical and able speech in favor of it about a ycfir ago. In this speech he pointed out that the election of Senators by the people was cou PRICE FIVE CENTS. sidered by the founders of the Government, and that the election by the Legislatures was finally adopted only as a compromise between tho appointment of the Senators l>y the President on the one extreme and their election by the people on the othsr Senator Mitchell believes that the move ment will result beneficially to all con cerned, because it looks to the right of the people to be heard directly in the election of Senators. "It will bring the people," says Senator Mitchell, "and the Senate into more amicable relation*. It will removii prejudice now exUtl g, and which are fast becoming deeply fastened upon the public mind; it will iuvoke a spirit of mutual for bearance and resDeet as between the Senata and the pe"ple, which unfortunately does not exist to that degree that ii desirable; It will restore confidence; it will dissipate all cause and excuse for unju-t criticism; it will tend to elevate the characterj,advaneo the dignity, increase the usefulness, extend the influence and justly magnify the power of the Senale, and ;it the same time promote the welfare of all the people of the Repub lic."
