Lieutenant Mertlch testified that men were put in straight-jackets and that they were ironed together. He considered the punishment light for tha offenses committed. Assistant Paymaster Mudd, attached to the Enterprise since October 4, 1877, next testified. He made a favorable pre- sentation of Captain McCalla's conduct in the Walker affair and deposed that the captain had no alternative but to use decisive measures with Walker. Assistant Engineer Bennett testified that oiler Whalen was placed in irons and afterwards compelled to shovel coal as a punishment for the breaking down of the steam launch while Whalen was running it at Gibraltar. Armorer Ken- nedy was cursed on. deck by Commander McCalla and relieved from duty, for the accidental discharge of a revolver. Sev- eral men were put in straight-jackets for days; others were lashed, to Jacob's ladder. A man who was put in the coal bunkers for drunkenness was sober when witness took him out.

NEW YORK, March expedition is now being organized in this city to add to the geographical knowledge of the world facts about Alaska. The Frank Leslie Weekly and Judge Pub- lishing Company is at the head of the scheme and is now making- the neces- sary preparations for equipping the ex- pedition suitably. Tho primary object of this search for information is to pene trate the country lying between the Copper and Yukon rivers in Central Alaska, a stretch of many thousands of square miles never yet trod by a white man. E. H. AVells, a western newspaper writer, will be at the bead of the dition. His experience consists of a campaign last summer in which he trav eled miles in tho wilds of tbe Brit- ish Northwest Territory. He has also mapped out for the Cnited States Gov emment a number of rivers in Ccatra' Alaska previously unknown. Saloon 'Wrecked TToman. tv.jcrcK Mo..

Tb" mother learned tbo and Submerged for Along Front, Extending Back Into City a Distance of Ten NEW OKLEAXS, March river here at p. m. yesterday was seven- teen feet, but it remained at that point but a short while, when it receded to sixteen feet eight inches, where it seemed to make a stand. This was six inches above record of other years and the water went over the levees and all alon? the city front at every depres- sion or low place, and soon flooded the streets and sidewalks of a large section of the city. Up town, at the head of Jackson and Washington streets, the waves washed over tho levees and sub- merged the streets and sidewalks; the Same thing occurred at other points down to Poydras street. There the water spread out over the broad space occupied by the Morgan road, filled up the low places and then began to float down Poydras street and out into the cross streets on either side, covering the sidewalks on Poydras street as far as St Charles street, and filling the gutters back to the drainage canals. On Gravier street the water flowed freely, completely covering the street in places. At the head of Canal street the water was running over the levee but very little; but from Custom House Street to Conti the water came over the levees freely and completely submerged the streets and in many places the walks and lower floors of business houses. From the north side of Canal to Hospital street, a distance of fourteen blocks from the river, to Rampart street, a distance of eight blocks, the water flows off in the gutters of street drains to the drainage canals in the rear of tha city. Below Elysian Fields street the water is also passing over the levee in many places. On the north side of Canal street Hill's jewelry store was invaded by the water and other business places uffered in like manner. Since Wednesday evening the leveas cross the river have boon in danger ,nd the water is coming over from tha ine of the Davis crovasso above the ity to the lower line, a distance of fif- een miles In many instances the water lows back for ten squares. A large orce of men are at work raising tho evee with sacks filled with earth. The Southern and Crescent oil mills were washed under by the water and the loors were torn away and embankments built underneath. From Canal street ferry to the Mor- gan railroad depot, the principal por- ;ion of Algiers, a distance of three- 'ourths of a mile, the situation at one ;ime was very threatening. About noon the water commenced washing over the .evee along its whole length, and in a short space of time the entire front and the streets for ten blocks were flooded. Yardmaster McGuire, of the Morgan railroad, and the city forces went to work at once and in four hours threw up an entire new levee. This stopped the flow temporarily, but the water was nearly knee-deep on the front street and HAJUUBBUKG. Pa., March 14. question whether Lewis Williams was murdered, or whether Charles shot him on his request, is about to be passed upon by the oourt of pardons. Williams was shot through the back of the head in 1874, and two years later Larabee was sentenced to death for the murder, but the sentence was afterward commutted to imprisonment for life. The murdered man threatened to commit suicide on the day he was found dead. The two men went hunting on that day and it is said Wil- liams bejfged Larabee to shoot him, fearing that he would go to "hades" if he committed suicide. Williams was a negro and his wife was a shrew, which made him long for death. ON A TEAR. tbe Southwest. Wect Enonnons Destruction of Property In Arkansas, Missouri and Tennessee. EXCITBD CHURCHMEN- United Presbyterian Marriage to HU Dead Wife's SUter a Com- motion and the Pastor KeuigM HU Charge. PITTSBURGH, March Pres- >yterian church circles are much ex- cited over the marriage of Rev. Dr. E. B. Ewing, pastor of the Sixth church, to a sister of his deceased wife. There is a UnitedPresbyterianlawwbichexpress ly forbids such marriages. Dr. Ewing does not profess to have been ignorant of the existence of the law, but contends that it has long been obsolete and that an attempt to enforce it would disrupt the denomination. So many of the mem- bers of his congregation differed with him, however, that he has tendered his resignation as pastor. The case will go to the presbytery, which will be asked to urge the general assembly to repeal the law forbidding such marriages. Swift and Terrible Punishment. PIERRE, S. D., March and terrible punishment was meted out Wednesday to Dirty Foot, a Sioux buck, who attempted murder at a camp on the Bad river.

A crowd soon gathered and Dirty Foot was caught and thrown into a fire in the center of the circle of tepees, and when he tried to escape was thrown back until he was burned almost to a crisp._______________ J atfooji after brief interview wilh V.ll Dry Goods Firm Fails for Over YORK, March dry goods trade was surprised yesterday by the unexpected announcement of the failure of Harbison Loder, wholesale dry goods dealers at Broadway.
