WASIUXGTOX, March Signal Office furnishes the following special river bulletin: The stage of the river at Cairo, 111., yesterday was 48.8. The water has risen half a foot in the past twenty-four hours and ona foot in the last four days. The conditions are fa- vorable for a further riae. Within the next five days the river will approxi- mate the highest known two feet At Cincinnati in the twenty-four hours past there has been a rise of seven feet; at St. Louis one foot. There has been a fall of eight feet at Chattanooga and one foot at Nashville. The quantity of rain that has fallen in the drainage for tho Ohio river in the past four days is estimated to be four and a half cubic miles. Three cubio miles of this has fallen in the area be- tween Cincinnati, Chattanooga and Nashville At Vicksbu-jir the stage of the water is 47.4 feet. Jb has risen four- tenths of a foot in the past tw enty-four hours It will probably rise to forty- nine feet. There hasbetn an extensive break in the main levee at Alsatia, thir- ty-five miles above Vicksburp, on the west bank of the river. Tho Arkansas at Little Rock has risen sit and a hall feet in the past twenty-four hours. The rainfall in Vicksbuig drainage area be- low Cairo in the past four days has been two cubic miles. The present prospects are that the stage of tho river from Cairo to Vicks burg and below will be one of the highest known. Without desiring to create general alarm in the valley o; the lower Mississippi, it would seem that the coming stajp "of water warrant the advisability of timely removals o stock and such other property as wouli be destroyed by an extreme flood.

NEW YOBK, March naval court appointed to investigate the charges of cruelty and oppression >rought against Commander McCalla, of the United States steamer Enterprise, reassembled yesterday, The first wit- ness called was Lieutenant Ingersoll, of the Enterprise. He testified to various punishments inflicted on men by Com- mander McCalla, but said all' the pun- ishments had been in accord with the laws. On July 6, 1888, late in the even- ing, witness heard a seaman making a great noise. He heard Commander Mc- Calla repeatedly order the noise to he stopped. At last the Commander went forward himself. He followed the Com- mander and found him standing near John E. Walker, a fireman, who was in the hands of snip's police. Walker used abusive language and swore at McCalla. Walker was gagged with a bayonet placed across his mouth and strapped there. After a while it was removed. Walker again became violent and abusive and McCalla drew his sword and struck him across the shoulder, knock- ing him down. After that Walker was put under arrest and placed in double irons. On cross-examination the lieutenant said he never knew a ship that had so much liquor smuggled on board as the Enterprise, and Walker with a number of others in the stokehole wore tho prin- cipal offenders. He said McCalla had introduced a number of improvements for the comfort of the men since he as- sumed command of the ship. After recess Second Lieutenant Fich- bohm testified that ordinary discipline prevailed aboard the Enterprise. The first class men had more liberty than on most ships. Lieutenant Osterhaus gave similar evidence. Lieutenant Lemley testified that there was a lack of system in the way punishments were meted out. He could not give particulars unless the ship's memorandum book was produced. Lieutenant Mulligan testified that or- dinary discipline was observed on the Enterprise. The Walker incident was the only notable exception. He never saw anything like that on a man-of-war before, but he considered the Com- mander justified in using his sword. Witness once struck a sailor and was privately reprimanded for it by the cap- tain. The crew of the Enterprise were the worst lot of men he ever saw aboard ship. Tbe fact was brought out by this witness that Commander McCalla struck Walker two blows, first a light one, then one that cut. Footpa4.
