Louis, is great ment here over the disappearance of Mijas 2erelda Gnrrisoii, a young girl of 17, remark- able for her beauty, and one of the bollea of the city. Sho waa last soon alivei last Satur- day, when a little after 1 o'clock, she loft the of her uncle. O. L. Garridon, accom- panied by her sister, Mrs. Morria, and came down town to the corner of Fifth and Olive etreeta. Sho there took a street car for Wild Hunter'a, the terminus of the oar Hue, in the exfiremo southern part of the city. The con- ductor of the car remembora her diatincrly. When ahe got off the car at Wild Himter'e she asked to bo directed to the cou'veiit of the Sacred Heart, which ia only a- dozen blooke away. Since then Mies Garrison ban not boen eeen or heard from. The conductor noticed on the car platform four rough-looking men of the hoodlum dtump, and they commented dur- ing the journey cm Miaa Garrison's handsome appearance. They said she Trae the moat beautiful woman they had ever soen on the cure. It is uuppoeed that these men had some- thing to do with the disappearance of the young lady, and most horrible suspicions are aroused. Misa Garrison waa returning to the convent to pursue her Btudiea. She had not returned since the Christmas holidays, liaviug beeu do- tamed by the visite of friends. She had been studyingthere for one year. She always made the journey to the convent in a carriage, but her uncle's horses were lame on Saturday, aad BO she decided to go in a street car. Her dis- appearance wan not hnowu to the family oir the polks until yeirterday afternoon, an her rela- tives thought she was at the convent, and the at the convent thought she was at home. Zerolda Garrison is tho daughter of Mca. Abram Garrison, and resides at Kirkwood, a suburban town twelve miles out Mr. O. Garriaon, secretary of the SL Louis Hteel and Ore company, in her uncle, and she in a rela- tive of Commodore Garriaon. Detectives siuue yesterday have been following every clew, but without avail. Zurelda Garrison is only 17, but as well de- veloped as a girl of She is strikingly hand- some; has brown hair, and eyea full of expres- sion a.nd life. Her complexion is fair, and is graceful in carriage aud stylish iu appoar- auce; weighs about 130 Bounds. The detectives and Chief of Police Camp- bell have been searching the vicinity of the convent for a clew, in vain. Tho men from the Vulcan Steel works, not far away, aided in the search. Yesterday tho ser- geant of police and a scmacl of twenty men ex- amined all the ground, hut without result Mrs. Abram Garrieou, mother of the not yet been informed of the disappearance. The relations have no theory, but feel tiunj foul play has beeu practiced. The excitement in the city ia intense, and the probable fiite of the jjoor girl is the universal theme of conversa- tion. The police are actively at work, and so far their efforts have reunited in nothing. The Sacred Heart convent is a noted Catholic educational institution, situuted about five miles south of the centre of the city, and enjoys a high reputation. The vicinity of convent is very sparsely settled. yesterday afternoon, a letter dated St. wns received by the family from Misa Garrison herself.

Last evening a letter waa received at the Oliver Garrison residence, from a party whose name was not announcing that the young lady could be ransomed, and that the party would be willing to place Thursday are much shattered and depleted.

A. Striking Article tke fern of Kic-ff TOBK Jan. says thera IB no longar any question that Ben Bntler is looming up one of the strong cwadidatea for the Democratic nomination for the; presidency. After speaking of the strong hold Butler haa upon the Irish element of the whole country "Gath" aays: Now that he haa become gov- ernor through the waning of the old social and official forces MaesachuBettii, the Irish are at )iia hack for president He poasaueea tmch positive qualities compare, to the other mon named for the prSidencyJ that unless strong ofTorta are made io promptly he will beffiu to deoisit hia larva, not only throughout the IrisL element of hie party, but in a couei dor able American element wbicb does not believe in reform political theories, but wants to see a strong man in the presiden- cy, as the embodiment of political revenge and political heroism at once. The strong, rough element witl want their victory to eting; and they see no man that is with any thing like the faculties of Beo Butler. Au- dacity hardly ever had ft representa- tive. From the beginning of hie life he haa chal- lenged every thing thftt he could not annex. A) college he retaliated tha routine au3 romt-es, am, narrowly escaped expulsion. He began the practice of law, a poor widow's child, at Low- ell; and when the mill twuers would not en- courage him he threatened, on one occasion, U have the town yet afire if a notice was not takex down turning any spinner out of employment who should vote for Bntler. "When a venera- ble college professor from Harvard was beinf brow-beaten by him in the witness-box, and tin judge interposed, saying: "He ia a professor a' Butler replied: "Yes, we hung om of them not long Webster." Butler has made it the great achievement o! hia life to overthrow Phariseeism, or respecta- bility, in Massachusetts. Looking askant him, he forceH, one after tbe other, all thi powers there to recognize him. He invadet Boston after tho had practiced itfew years it Lowell, and ran a law office at both ends o) the line, keeping a ptwiner in each place. H( claims that hie father was in the military ser- vice uc'ler Andrew Jackson at New Orleans. and certainly hia elder l.rother was named An- drew Jackso'n, as he named Benjamin Franklin. At tho Cliar'eston convention But- ler.iiiH.de it his object to defeat the pride of the Irish rrt.ce. Stephen A. B'ongias; and yet he if now tho claimant of tbe Irish vote. He there voted fifty times for Jefferson Davis, giving only seven ballots to Mr. Douglas, and those at the beginning. When secession followed the disruption oi the Democratic party Butlor waa one of the first to jump on the deck of tho fire-atrip, and he ftdvise-1 Jore Black and tg arrest the three commissioners of the Confed- erate stated tmd try them before the supreme court, Butler saying li.e would prosecute them without fee, and that he wanted thera hanged. He scared Buchanan and Black al- most to death, who warei a pair of old women trying to be a government in time of danger. Butler then threw himself at the head of military preparation in Massachusetts, and, be- ing general of brigade in tbe militia already, and few of the Republican leaders having anj experience, he got Gov. Andrew under his thumb, and had nnueelf receive the com- mission of brigadier-general, which was sent on in blank from Washington. As much -as An- drow could do afterward to break Butler down, he had given him too great a start His strong nature, love of the dramatic, in- tensity and audacity were eoou gratified witfc the military command of Baltimore city; and afterward with tho military command of New Orleans, where he did hang hia man at the first opportunity. When New Yorh broke into tho draft riota, her trembled ths anticipation of Butlei coming to stud the' yard-arma of the men- of-war with dangling figures, such aa tht Turks-pulled up by multitudes whon they Cftma back from the Greek revolution and an- chored in the Golden Horn. General Grant. taking a diftdainful view of a general who had so much of the provoat marshal in him, had to come to terms when he waa rained to the. presidency, and found Butler his pos- sible foe in, Ha came down like the celebrated cooii in the story of David Crockett, which, knowing the sharpness of the huuter'a aim, remarked from the top of the tree: "Mr. Crockett, don't waste-yonr ammunition. Con- sider me shot" Grant had been very much sweetened toward Butler by the fierceness and genius which he ahowed in the impeachment trial; yet, an soon aa it waa over, Butler ruolied up to the White House, shook Johnson by the hand and said, in effect: "It has all beeu a little joke betireen yon and me to swindle those Badicala" Butler ie much read aa any body in this country, not excepting Bob IngersolL To-dRY AtassachusottH could not Btattd a little criti- cism from James G. Blaine on her old raacale during the war of 1812, subsequently, when Maine wanted to be Independent oi Massachusetts; but she has to receive a every few days from Butler, who shows her that is fntl of illiteracy and bed-bugs, and is wo more than a sort of of her high connections, bat to all in- tents buried and Bmelliut? bail. Tbe old man 8reduces the figures on them, and they rotor I lat the illiteracy ia all on account of Butter's particular The man who lias thus got possession, ol Massachnssette and ia pulling up nor raiment and exposing her nakedness to the rest of tbe country must naturally be the delight of othei portions of the country which have had reaaon to lament the efficiency of the Bay eUte in and before the war. That etate elects her governoi every yew, and before we have to breathe and til ink abcrat it there will be, another campaign, and probably Butler elected again. He can keep up this aensation several timei between now ami the presidential nomination, where hi has at a great .disadvantage quiet old gentle- men like McDonald undPiyne. In short, he is tbe oidy Democratic presidential candidate with a great big physical record, such aa meo like ta vote for who do not read much. Whatever may be said against Bntler, hia lift haa been decidedly more reapeetabie in its episodes than General Jackeon s, who aliot bis own aoldiera by the bushel, killed man in i duel, rui off with another man's wife, and wat the wild-eyed bully of his region. If Butlei should be nominated by the Democracy, if would throw all the timid people in tliis coun- try on one side, and there might be a certain Demucratic element hi the north to vote for the Republican nominee if he was not positively Republican. Butter expects to unite TLuder his banner tho Irish, the south, and tht general political element in the Republican Sarty well as in the Democratic party which nut want policies to ba reformed, but wattlu the oldfogiea to reformed who ure to criticise ihe politicians.

Rosewater's second choice would be Senator Saundere, but hia first choice ia an unknown.

TEEEOE-STRICKEK, The Union Square Theatre the Scene of a Causeless runic Last Evening. Several Persons IrtKured Before the Restoration of the Craze Started. Nsw YcmK, Jan. 18. was a panic In the: Union Square theatre last uight During the second act of Romance" sev- eral, ladiea and gentlemen sitting in the first row of seats arose and hurriedly left the building Others, seeing this unexplained movement and not understanding it, rose hastily on all sidea, and in a moment the stampede became gen- eral Aialoe were crowded, and there was a dangerous m rueh toward tbe chief exit on Union square. There was no alarm cry given, but tho ab- sence of it seemed to add fearful significance to the, it thia time, .terrible struggle to reach tbe do or a. One lady who waa terribly crushed was heard to faintly moan, uMy God, O fainted. Some persons in the boxes ciied otit that all waa the audience became isomewhat assured. A lady who was iu tbe struggling masa, begged a man who was ferociously beating hits way to the door not to hurt her. 'He replied: "I aaw the Brooklyn theatre fire: donH talk to me. It was gone in five minutes." This cry recalled to the minds of nearly all that the Union Square management had poa- HGBsioii of tho Bvoolslya theatre ou tbo night: when it was destroyed by fire, with such frightful Io83 of life. It1 ia said some sparks of firo were soeu to faM on tho stage.and this, in view of the recent Milwaukee fire, created a terrible dread of what would seem certain death. A number of ladies fainted and many lost their jewelry. After the panic had sub'- sided the play was continued. TUe Timea says: There was a slight panic in th3 Union Square theatre last night, owing to a musician's instrument cage taking fire from a gjiB-jet under the stage, near tho door by which tho musicians enter the orchestra. In the sec- ond act of MA Parisian the pun- gent smoke from the burning eaaa was. forced into the auditorium. Several persona moved uneasily in their seats and The first Jpersons to leave their were the Misses Lawrence, of the New, York hotel. The theatre waa packed, and the. hurried movements .of the Lawrence caused tbe people to riee aud exclaim: "What ia the matter; Mr, A. M, Palmer, who waa in the stago box, called out: "Be still, or you'll your aeata. There IB noth- ing the matter; the smoke is from a fire they aro lighting nest door." Mr. liichard -Mansfield, who waa on the stage to the role of Baron Chevrial, also reassured the audience. Tho ushers sprang to tho exits. Officer Charles lianley, of.the Mercer street station, was in. the gallery when the alarm begiin, A man shouted and attempted; to leave the theatre. The officer seiasd laini and forced him into a seat, and shouted to tbe people that there waa no fire, and that they must keep their Beats. The panic was over in a minute. About twenty-five per- sons went into the theatre lobby. .One lady lady fainted there. Sho recovered, went hack with others to the theatre to witness tha peri'ormatice, which was1 continued The only damage done by the gas- jet was to the musician's instrument case.- It was fortunate the' instrument case was of leather, aa the pungent odors from it were im- mediately deieoted. Officer Hanley aejit for OflGcer van Korden, who was at the Gorraania but when he arrived his services were not needed, RB the people were going back tc- tbeir seats. Tbe fireman at the theatre did ftGt thiuk it necessary to seud out an alarm. INDIANA. The Prohibition Haestton---8 ome- tbtHK About Contested Canes. IKDIANAPOUS, Jan. both branches of the legislature yesterday the consti- tutional amendment matter came up, reso- lutions being -presented instructing tbe judi- ciary committee to report upon the eitatua ol the amendments. Ia the senate, Bischo- wisky, Van Voorhees, and Yonche votcid yea with the Democrats, and Marvin and Mclii- toah nay with the Republicans The house irote waa divided strictly by party liiiea In neither case is it to be taken as a teat vote, as many of the Democrats think it ia the best way to bring up the question. The hoviso committee is instructed to report next Friday, Thursday J, H. Winter bo thaui sent a letter to to every senator and representative denounc- ing Senator Hntchinson, of La Porte county, as a traitor to his party. Yesterday, afternoon Senator Campbell offered a resolution ask- ing that tho Winterbotbam memorial, rela- tive to the manner of defeat by Calk- ins be taken out of the hands of the committee to which it had been referred and brought; be- fore the senate. He held that as Senator Win- terbotham had shown disrespect to one sena- tor he had shown it to the entire senate, aud was therefore not entitled to any consideration by the senate. To this Senator Browu, the leader of tho Democracy, und Winterbotham'a friend, who introduced the memorial, made a bitter speech, insinuating that Campbell desired to 'get rid of the memorial in order to prevent an exposure of the methods of bulldozing practiced by tha Republican manufacturers of South Bend. To thia Senator Campbell responded that the beet answer to such a charge, and a test of the Democratic belief in the practices alleged, waa the abandonment of the contest for Mr seat, which would have to be made before a house overwhelmingly Demo- cratic. Apropos, it is believed here ttiat Will E. English haa abandoned hia against Representative Peetle.

OBS, Jan. Tho result of the suit of Mary Alice Almont Ijvingston againat Henry Fleming, the millionaire oil merchant, merits more extended notice than the brief dis- patch sent yesterday. Henry Fleming testified the day before that he had gained hie informa- tion thiil the plaintiff had beou an inmate of disreputable housea from ono Potter, a detec- tive, aud had promised to produce the memor- anda he had made of the. and the .detec- tive. The detective did not appear, and a loi of memoranda was read. It was indefinite and incomplete. Counael offered documentary evidence to show that in 1879, 1880, 1881, 1883, .when it waa claimed that Fleming was being, black -mailed, Mrs. Bliss had received from the estate of her first husband, the B.QU. Swift Livingston, The documents shouted that Miss Livingston. had now in cash iu the city chamber- lain's hands, which is invested for her, and the will and its codicile showed that her father had cart-fully provided for her and ber other daughters, one of whom .waa the wife of Old- eon The counsel for the defence requested Miea Livingstone to leave the court-room, he might be unrestrained iu what he had to say, and she obeyed. He 'ctaimed- that -the suit was a couspiracy, and he denounced the Elaintift as a Cyprian, who, with her mother, ad concocted. a plot. to. catch Fleming and to extort money from him. Tho plaintiff's counsel, Robert S. Nowcomb, described Fleming, as it roue, who, having the inherited riches of in- dustry and the appetites of aalfr-iudnlgencet thought nothing of .wrecking a young giiTa vir- tue and then casting her aside. He knew she had nu male relative, up father or who would chastise him aa. he deserved. .Con- scienceless, godless, creedlesB, heartless, blood- less, he had stolen into a sacred temple like a viper, and now seeks to creep away again, liapa into some other and darken that also. .The law substituted. a court of justice for her father, and gave her twelve brethren, who were t-o, decide .whether sha.had received justice from her aeduc'or'e hands.
