The mercury in the thermometer drop- ped fust, and the cold increased hourly. Ion at all quar and then nil hands started for the fishermen, whom they found in a terrible condition, with feet, noses, hands aud ears frozen. They had GIVEJf UP ALL HOPiCS of succor, and expected death in a been balmily work would hove I short time. They were hurried to beeu abandoned. But they are not; to the boats, all getting away fiom the only toilers on the ice on the i the ice fields in safety, and landing ters Sllfl'etod greatly, and had il not tiffin wniltjl hncn Hudson in the winter time. They have comrades who follow a dif- ferent, of fishing. It is estimated that over one thou- sand persons a livelihood on tho river in tUe winter time by fish- ing. Theirs, is n L.VBOK1OCS WOEK. They watch the tides and fish ac- cordingly. The "catch" iucludos while and yellow perch, striped bass ami pickerel, which sell read- ily ac from ilt'teen to twecty cents per pound, thus enabling the fish- ermen to make from five to ten dollnrs per day. In Havel-straw Bay on Saturday there wore about one hundred ami seventy fishermen at work with their nets. As before stated, it was 'n terrible, day. They were scattered nil over the river, braving the piercing, cutting wind, intent only upon ending up the week with a "cateli" fall of profit and then going homo to their families. At 2 :ISO p. rn. a cry of terror rang thro' the crowd. "THE ICE is MOVING! Go for the shore shouted a bur- ly but pnle-faccd fisherman, as he hurried along to the westward, anil in an instant the wildest excite- ment ensued. The toilers looked on to tho northward and observed clear watcn between the ico they were on and the solid frozen bridge north of Cruger's. The entire lield of ice, embracing the whole chan- nel of H.'ivet'jitraw H'.iy, was on the move and carrying with it nearly two hundred human beings. Pikes nnd nets were dropped, and then there was A HUSH FOU while tho air was filled with cries for help from the throats of the cut- off ftslierincn, who could be seen zffrout .Iho ice wildly. In. ten minutes after both the western, and eastern shores were lined with villagers, who ran wild- ly about upon the beach, scarcely knowing what to do. Finally a few of the more cocl-headed launched four boats and started on a danger- ous voyage of rescue. In the mean- time st-ores of the fishermen had reached the edge of the ice nearest the shore, anil, TUb'STINO TO LUClv, plunged into the. freezing water and reached IsrrttJirmrt in safety, cov- ered iVoiu head to foot with n Oiick coating of ice.. It was then ob- served that nine were left and Uial the surging lido was swinging the field of ice far out into the river, the Hudson at the point named be- ing extremely wide. Again the boats started to the rescue, but be- fore they reached the frozen island five out of the nine were in the riv- er struggling frantically against death. Just ai they were about giving up, the boats reached them, and they were dragged in complete- ly exhausted, and two of them had fainted. In an instant, almost, their clothing was FUOZEN STIFF, and the rowers with great difficulty on the west shore, ten inilea from where they- started. The fishermen were thea taken to Cruger's wheiv they are now with their respective families, and receiving the best medical attention. Their situations are precarious, though it is possi- ble they may recover. Their names fire Peter Eorau, Waa. Brown, Jas. Clark and Thos. Riely. I wish I knew the name of their rescuers. A FIGHTING PARSON, Disorder in a Pennsylvania lie- viral Gregg Putting a liesui ou the Offend- ers in the Sumo of the Lord. Not very far from Lancaster, Pa., is a little edifice culled the Octorara Methodist Episcopal Church, over whose congregation Parson Grogg sometimes presides. Parson Grega is a man who fears the Lord, but never stands in dread of man, be he ever so mighty. Tlie Octorara Church, generally known us the ''Gray stands in a sort of desert, and lies one-half in Penn- sylvania and one-half in Maryland that is, the old Mason and Dixon's line cuts it in two and leaves the sacred building equally divided be- tween the two States. Whenever there is a revival the ungodly from Southern side of the line come over and raise Cain among the faith- ful. They congregate about the door and issue cat calls, and they swear and cut up like bar- but ians When mewling is over they force their attentions upon the young ladies ot the church, and make love to tttcin in a highly un- decoroiia manner, and on meeting the parson always insist upon his taking n drink Tliis invariablv olfeuds the good man, and excites his wrath against the wretches, the more since are almost alvays tipsy, aud invariably blasphemous. One night a par'y of them came over the line and dia-onrbed the meeting. Parson Gregg paused a a moment in Iho delivery of his ser- mon, (which by tho way was from the 5th chapter of St. Matthew) and rolling up his sleeves, uttered him- self as follows: Young men If there's another disorderly sound frum among your disreputable erowd, I'll come down from this sacred desk, nnd in the name of the Lord, put a head on every mother's son of you. Get down on your knees, you hounds, and pray for belter manners, or else levant." Saying which he proceeded with his sermon, a most edifying dis- course. In a moment the noise again be- gan. An audib'.e swe.ir of Uie first magnitude tilled the room with its bad odor, and caused the worship- ers to shrink within themselves with horror. Parson Gregg came down from that pulpit in a state of quiet rage. lie took off his coat and hung it STRUGGLE FOR LIFE. over the clianvpliail, and then went kept them alive by "constant and for those wicked youno; men, only vigorous rubbing until the shore i one whom he succeeded in over was readied, their benumbed hauling within the portals of the forms were handed over to willing chinch. Him ho basted satisfac- handa and curried to warm tire- I toril.y. Following close the sides, where soon showed i o1' others, IIP came np with sijjns of lii'e, but. the linncla of all j tllc most outrageous lioatlien of all, were badly frozen, as were also I one Jim Bedloe, whom ho tackled without a word of grace Parson Grcu'g gave Kedloe a most clerical and catoniciil walloping. When he had finished pounding with his lists he resorted to his heels. Jim was alile to defend all ol him their ears. As soon as they were lauded upon the beach the boats again started for the ice-field to rescue the four surviving fisher- men. By this time the detached ice hud floated down tho river two miles, and the CRIES FOU HELP from the throats of the unfortunate men were agonizing in the extreme. They could be seen in the centre of the field stamping and running and throwing up their arma, but nothing could prevail upon them to leave the center, as THE CHOPPING WAVES WERE BREAK- ING UP 'XHE EDGES of the ice, and now and then huge cracks would run along the frozen surface for hundreds of feet, giving warning to the fishermen that their flouting see island was, by the ac- tion ot the wind and waves, break- ing to pieces beneath them. Dark- ness came and then the moon rose upon the Bcene, and still the wind' blow with great violence. The four small boats containing brave hearts were fastened to the ice fields and flouted down the river with it, the occupants of the boat vainly en deavoring to get THE NOW PKR1SUING MEN to come toward them. Ten o'clock came, and fill were six miles away from the "break when the men in tho boats noticed a cessation of the cries from the fishermen. This to them was full of horror, as it gave token of the possibility of the .unfortunate mea freezing to A lonely Tramp of Miles ill the Dead of lug a Mult) and Hiding him to Death.

The Parson then returned to his pulpit and finished his sermon. He will never be troubled any more. i A GENTLEMAN who had been studying botany in the Sandwich Islands describes the pursuit of the science there !is somewhat difficult and perilous. On ono of his trips he was obliged to descend o.'p incline at an angle of seventy de- nrees, by swinging from the roots i >f one tree to the branches of an- other, nnd this, with a gorge be neath him two thousand feet deep. But he was rewarded by finding a magnificent violet, with splendid snowy-white waxy flowers, some of them nearly half an inch in diam- eter, and exquisitely perfumed. STEP by step the goal is readied. A lill is pending in the Pennsyl- vania Legislature providing that female tax-payers of the Common- wealth over the age of twenty-one years, who shall have resided in any school district tor more than one year, shall be eligible therein for election or appointment to the office of director o( eorninon schools. The Sioux City Journal says: On Sunday last there arrived in our city the worst used up specimen ot a Texas cattle driver we ever saw. His name is Thomas Dormit. He- had come from Fort Buford, twelve hundred and twenty-four mites on foot. The following iti a history of his awful tramp through a wild Indian country in the- dead of win- ter: He left Buford in the latter part of Oct. without a dollar in money. His desire was to reach Texas When he started out on his long journey the weather was very pleas- the weather prophets at that place predicted a very mild and open winter. He accepted their predic- tions, and began bis journey for the States. After traveling abont two hun- dred miles a feaifnl snow atorm overtook him, and he became be- wildered and nearly perished in the storm, which continued for two days. When the storm ceased he came from his hiding hole in an start- ed for fort Buford. But after going about one mile he stopped and argue1! the tion with himself, whether it was i better to die like a coward on his retreat, or go on and die like a hero. This question, lie says, was a dillicut one to decide. He knew the route back to B'iford, and also knew that he was midway between Buford and Rice, but lie vvas uncer- tain of the route to the latter place, and yet the inducements to keeo on were strong, for at Rice he had a friend and at Buford he had tone. On the whole he considered the question evenly balanced, und tir decide his couise he retorted to the child's method of setting up a stick to fall as it would, determined to pursue the direction it pointed, lie set up the stick, and balanced it on its end as well as he could It stood still for a few seconds, ns if partaking of the man's doubt, and then fell toward the States Accepting the decision, Lc started on for Fort Rice. The undertaking was an awful one, and tie had but little hopes ot ever making that place alive, unii ho had not, had a mouthful to for forty-eight hours. Togethei with his fasting and the eft'ocis of his expos ire to the storm, he found himself and not as brave ac he wont to be. To die he con sidercd would be a priviledsre, and he was several times tempted to shoot himself. But when it came lo the poi.it his courage wouldn't slick, and hope would again assume control of his mind and "le would continue his woary plodding. On the second day after the storm, as night was approaching.lie sought some place of shelter to remain un- tiljmorning, and thus discoveied an embankment, a short distance from the road upon which he "ras travel- ing. He determined to rest there for the night. As ho was crawlinu into the aperture on his hands and knees, he put his hands upon the cold face of a dead Indian who lay near the rnouth of the hole. At first he was startled, and thought to leave, but ou second thought'he concluded that, as he was not afraid of a live Indian, he surely wasn't afraid of a dead Indian. Accord- ingly, he began to drag the defunct brave from the hole to make room for himself. On reaching the outside of the cave with the dead Indian, he flis covered a deep wound on the lift side of the body below the ribs. which he concluded was caused by the horn ot a buffalo, and from the effects of which the big hrare inusi have died. This opinion was strengthened by the that he found a large piece of frozen buffa- lo meut in the hole, which, it is un necessary to say, was devoured without much ceroraom7. His eleep upon that night was very much turbe'l. Either t.lie presence of the dead rod, or the amount of buffalo meat ho put into his strmuch. caused terrible attacks of night mare. He was several times scalped and tied to the stake, and more than once trampled to death herds of buffalo. The morning came at last, and he crawled out, scarcely believing in his own identity alter such tortur- ing dreams. He took a last look at the dead and went on bis- way, not knowing how soon he should sleep again not to waken About noon of this day's tramp lie- shot an antelope, nnd then ho be lieved the good Lord was indeed on his side. Cutting out what meal he could comfortably cany, be took up his line of march with a strong faith in the accomplishment of his undertaking The rest of this day passed with- out anything of note transpiring, did the succeeding day, until lati in the afternoon, when he met s party of four Indians, who took what little meat he had left and sent him on bis way far from re- joicing. Abort an hour before dork, and but a few miles from Fort Itartliold. a large black bear was discovered sitting riulu in the path which he was traveling. Bruin looked at the Texan, and the Texan looked at "Bruin, both standing like posts. The Texan did to shoot unless he was certain of doing good execution, for n shot would only provoke an attack- which 1 e was in poor condition to He preferred to await the action his bearship. A few moments and the bear left, and oar hero went on, reaching Ft. Benin-Id a short time after daik, where lie rested and iccuperated a couple if days. During his journey from Bert- hold to Rice the weather was fine, and game plenty, consequently he enjoyed comparative Im- mense herds of buffalo, antelope, and elk were seen between the two places. At Rice he found his friend bad left for the States. He remained there, however, until he hml some- what recovered from the effects of his tramp, when he stole a Govern- ment mule, and put out for Fort Sully. The mute proved serviceable lo a point within fifty miles of S illy, when the poor creature dropped dead on tha road from ovci'-eser- tion. He had made 2.30 miles ia three days and a half. There was nothing along the route for the mule to subsist upon, and there- fore our traveler concluded that he must make good utc of tho animal for the first few days, which uoue will dispute he did. The Toxan had 'rosted his hands and feet, though seriou'-Iy, end he was quite when he safely roafhfil Fort Siiily. The re- mainiirir portion of the to this city was accoicjjIKbed with comparative case. He csiijjhl a ride from Suiiy to Fou Thompson, and aJ'ter Ilia, the distances were so short between the posis that he could easily carrv what provisions he nee.led. Kadk-al Thievery. To give an instance of the man- ner which our people have been swindled by the swarm of carpet baggers, whom Holden tssisU-ii in all their wicked desi-jrns, it will only be necessarv to mention an in- cident of recent occurrence. .M.
