NEW YORK, April 7. During a quar- rel at 82 Cherry street last night, caused by some of the occupants of the refusing to contribute money for "the which was being "rushed" by two notorious characters named Curtin, several persons were stabbed and one, John Sloan, an old 'longshoreman, will die from his in- juries. The Curtins had mala a general attack on the tenants, and Sloan with a club tried to drive them away. They wrested his club from him and beat him terribly and also stabbed him with a pen- knife. James Lawton, Sloan's son-in-law, was stabbed nine times while trying to de- fend the old man. Mrs. Sloan and Mary Driscoll were slightly stabbed. The Curtin brothers were captured by officers after a long chase over the roofs. Sloan is dying at tUe hospital and Lawton is very low. TO BE EVICTED. Tenants of a Mining Company Will be Kjected from Their Homes. ra., April 7. The Union Improvement Company (the Ebervale Coal Company) has issued nine writs of ejectment against tenants occu- pying their property at Ebervale. The writs are based upon a cast iron lease, in T.vhich the tenant in each case agrees to quit the premises whenever requested to do so by the company, without further notice. In order to enforce this agree- ment tenants have been compelled to sign a contract authorizing any lawyer in Luzerne County to confess judgment in ejectment against them. The writs were placed in the hands of the sheriff here and it is likely that nine fami- lies will soon be homeless. This action is similar to that taken by Wentz Co. two years ago, which action aroused such strong indignation that the com- pany was compelled to recall their writs of ejectment KAI.TIMOKE.

He has been in- specting the levees between here and New Orleans. He reports the Pointe Coupee front iu good condition, except at the Preston place opposite here, and materials for strengthening the levee have arrived there. Morgan's levee, which protects a large part of Southwest Louisiana, is being strengthened and carefully guarded. ARKANSAS CITY, Ark., April cre- vasse in Boggy Bayou levee caused the water inside the levee here to rise slowly yesterday. Captain Tollinger was in- formed in the morning that the Red Fork people had cut the levee and that the break was sixty feet wide. He starts at once with men and material to close it The Boggy Bayou levee is a very important one for this section. GREENVILLE, Miss., April crevasse at Catfish Point was feet wide and increasing at last reports. The water from there has reached Green- ville and is flooding the first floors of buildings. Parties arriving here by skiffs Greenwood report a aad condition of affairs in the Sunflower lowlands. Plan- tations are submerged and buildings are being washed away into the swamps. The colored people are huddled upon the levees, hungry, cold and shelterless. Many are likely to die of exposure if aid is not received. Tents, food and clothing are greatly needed. The Government boats are doing what they can, but can not cover the entire field. While a colored man with three women in a skiff were fleeing from the approaching flood in the eoun- try on the Georgia railroad the skiff commenced to leak, and before any as- sistance could be rendered them the whole party went down. The man had a narrow escape, but the three women were drowned. A NEW TKUNK Distance Rail Between Pittsburgh and to Shortened Fifty-two -_ UKK. Ajiril 7. -Tiif tios m'.n "V- M'T'T'-C in O., April 7.
