Flooded Towns In 8mall Boats-Dosens of Plantations Bulned-DwelUos* Carried A�J Whlls the Families Are at Meals or Slespltta- -   The Btoer Still BistBC New Orleans, April 1__Reports now. being received bete from the lower Mississippi Valley show that the flooded section ia in a deplorable situation, much worse than at any time in years: In some neighborhoods all booses wltbfn a mile or two of the river have been literally washed away. In many instances the breaks in tbe levees have been so sndden and the waters have poured through so furiously that tbe inhabitants have barely escaped with their lives by fleeing to the hills. Even on tbe hills tbey are not always safe, and the relief boats are busy constantly taking whole families from tree tops where they have taken refuge. Property of all kinds are ruined, the crops swept away, and all over tbe muddy Mississippi is dotted with the bodies of cattle, hones, sheep and other stock. Occasionally whole houses go floating down with the thousands of logs sod ruins .of what were onoe dwellings, stores or barna. Many planters south ot Helena, Arkansas, are ruined, having lost everything tbey possessed save their lives. Their crops are gone and even if tbe waters were to sub-aide tbey could not start soother crop because tbey have also lost all their seed. Just how many lives have been lost no one knows, but the list will probably ranch more than one hundred. The only great loss of life is reported from Henderson, Ky. Forty-two persons lost their lives and several score of others were badly wounded. WHOLE FAUILIKS VfOCKDEO. In Southern Illinois and Kentucky tbe farm owners lost five hundred cattle at one sweep. Great damage was done at and near Goloonda, Illinois. In Golconda a dozen houses were carried away within two hours, and about a score of families made homeless. All barns near tbe river were also destroyed. Just across the, river at this point the farm of Jacob Schwab was ruined. Mr. Schwab, who had gone to tbe top of bis house for safety was dashed against a tree and his body was mangled beyond recognition. The house of William Bell was torn to pieces, his furniture was blown into tbe river five miles sway, his barn demolished, stock killed, and of his family of five every one had an arm or leg broken or waa otherwise injured. Eli Bobbett and family were at supper, and although bis house was carried away and demolished no one was hurt. Some of tbe dishes on tbe supper table were found on the other side of the Ohio river. folks is trees all night. Between Helens and Arkansas City toe waters, whioh have already destroyed many plantations, have flooded Laconia Circle. Tbe water poured over the levees on all sides and io three hours the circle was filled with water averaging eight feet deep. This occurred so suddenly that the people had no time to do anything. Tbeir houses, stock and everything else tbey owned was in the water, and in some cases swept away before they realized what had happened. A steamer wss sent down from Helena and those on board found that people had been living iu tbe lofts of some of the low bouses and when these careened tbey oould only escape by knocking boles io tbe roofs. Several people were blown into tbe water and swam to trees, where they remained all of last night. A gang of men went over the aircle iu small boats and transferred people from trees and roofs to the gin houses, which are now psoked with people, 200 persons being in some of them. A steamer brought out 130 people and 110 head of stock and took them to Helena. When tbe Coombs came out of tbe Circle the steamer Titan, with barges, was going in, and it is thought that they can bring out all tbe remaining stock and as many of tbe people as desire to get away.

Coburn enjoys a good story, and be tikes to tell one aooaaionally.' He did it yesterday, and it was about Dan Hastings. The story, of course, is public property in Bellefonte, where the General is well known, bat It mcy be new to Pitts-burgers. When Hastings was a younger man, he and a friend of his named Yocom were invited to address a Sunday school a few miles from Bellefonte. Yoouro and the General were chums, and they roomed together. Hsstings made no preparation, but intended to speak as tbe spirit moved him. Yocum gave his subject much thought, and finally wrote oat a spaeeb. Tbe night before they were to make the addresses the two were sitting in their room, when Yocum pulled out bis manuscript and wanted Dad's opinion of hia composition. Now, Hastings has a remarkable memory, and when so inclined oan retain almost anything he hears. Yocum read the speech, and they finally agreed that Hastings skoald apeak first. Arrived at the school the next dsy a committee met them, and when they were asked if it made any difference who should take the floor first, Yocum replied: "Oh, no; Hastings and I have settled that He will be the first speaker." The General then delivered Yoenm's set speesh, and the latter was paralysed. He managed, however, to make some blundering remarks, hut his rage was furious. He wouldn't talk to Heatings for a long time, until friends began to notice the coolness. "What'stbe matter between yon and! Dan ?'' one of the boys asked Yocum. "You ask Hastings," be answered. "He played a mean trick on me, and I won't forget it." The joke finally leaked out, and everybody had a hearty langh at Yocum's expense, i �. � Friday Might's Performance. Tbe Lilly Clay Gaiety Company have always attracted large audiences upon tbeir several visits to tbis city and it is therefore almost certain that Friday night will find the Opera House completely filled.

Tbe various burlesques to be presented are all new and neatly done. The entire performance will gratify the tastes of every person who witnesses it. Tbe company is tbe largest and best that Mr. Jack has ever bad and is giving universal satisfaction.

A oar loaded with stone stands on a side track in tbe upper height yard to day which, owing to their immense size and floe quality, attracts much attention. The big stones came from Warren county quarries, and are to be used as bridge seats for the new iron bridge at the East end of Great Island. Tbe contractor for the stone work of the east end bridge is E. T. Gallagher. Tbe stones will be hauled on wagons from tbe oar to tbe place where they are to find a resting place whioh, owing to the present condition of the roads, will be considerable of a job. Contractor Gallagher is not hindered by trifles, however, and will certainly find a way to get the big "rocks" to tbe bridge. Tbe bridge seats are the top layer of stone on a pier or ab utmenta. . Logs and Timber. Tbe water in tbe river is getting down to a low stage for rafting. A few straggling timber fleets cams in yesterday afternoon, and a few more are expected today. Upwards of three hundred rafts have come in so far, and there are quite a number back yet to oome on the next flood. Rafting out of logs was begun yesterday afternoon by tbe boom men. They floated tbeir ark and platforms below the river bridge and began the work of rafting tbe logs out of the pocket boom. A number of rafts are still here but most of them will be sent on below to-morrow. Gems For Children's Dsy. No. 4 of Gems for Children's Day by our townsman, J. N. Welliver, is on oar table.

Tbe duplication of "old sol" waa not as brilliant as tbey oftentimes appear yet was bright enough to indicate the approaob of a storm. The same phenomenon haa been observed at many places throughout the eonoty recently, but is nothing unusual at this season of tbe year. The First to Arrive.

"What claims hath yon to ester here?" He cried wltb earnest mien: "Please, sir," said she, 'twixt hope and fear, "i'm only just sixteen." "Enough," the hoary guardian said.

In tbe annexed towns the Republicans maintain tbe lead by a narrow margin. Tbe fight for township tickets and candidates for city aldermanio honors were contested at tbe poll*. The eomplexion of the Council appeared at 10:30 p. tn., to have been practically unchanged by the days struggle, tbe board remaining Republican by a majority of three.
