The locomotive boiler explosion Which occurred in the Chicago and Alton yards, at Bloomington, on Saturday, naturally took those aoiuaiiited with the record of the road back to some of the old time accidents, and a gentleman who has s^iit many years in the employ of the company, and who is well fitted to speak af its history, in talking to a reporter of the Bulletin, y(?sterday, gave it the following interesting facts: The first exfdosioii occuired in Chicago in the summer of 1802. The victim was a Swinebiirne engine—No.*8 Whetlter there was anyone killed or hurt by this blow, up our informant did not state.

In February, 1864, No. 9 blew up. She was also of the Swineburne build. The accident occurred just after the engine hat passed the Chicago and Alton freight house, in this city.

The sensation of yesterday in Which Mr. Harwood horse-whipped Mr. Stev eus is still the talk of the town, unc, every one is on the anxious seat to know what it all means, and ^ what Mr Stevemsdid to merit cbastisment trom Mr. Harwood and how it is going to end The matter rests to a certain extent with Mr. Stevens who will be obliged to obtain an explanation,^ though at present he claims to know nothing about the matter other than that he w’as assaulted.by Har wpod. Mr. Stevens is a married man with a family and occupies a position in Joliet society, He is a member of the Taiiry of ChristW Church, amd aU thesr things tend to make an explanation more necessary. If he does not obtain one he must necessarily expect to have tremble in those three elements neees aary to a man's happiness Jnamdy: The family, ahuroh and society./ Numerous reasons were alleged this morning and told on the street. -Gne of which, was that Mr. Stevens, in riding by Miss Mae Moore, of Kafikakee, the lady in question, had asked his wife w ho it w’a%, and remifrked that her hair looked like a braided horse’s tail. Mr. Steven’s wife repeated the remark, and of course, It went the founds among the ladies. The trouble arose from this it is said. Another version of the case is said to come from Harw ood and Moore, and is that Mr. Stevens attended the party held a few evenings ago, at Citixens Corps Halb and that Miss Moore was there. Richmond, Va., Jan 10—The Legislative Committee appointed to investigate the smal l-pox question reported that tlie scourge was not increasing.

The No 96 exploded, but no one was hurt, the engineer, William Dunn, and fireman, and Ji iimmy Cunning-fiam, making a most miraculous escape.

When were reetored sDl wae reflttedi The Whisky Lobby Hard at Work. , Washington, Jan. ll.-A delegation, understood to be the advance guard of the Cincinnati whisky houses, has arrived here to organize a lobby to secure the total rerepeal to the tax on whisky. They ^ were about the Capitol to-day feeling their way aiid trying to ascertain whether the iron and steel men would enter into a combination td secure the repeal of the whisky tax and an increase, of the duty on steel and iron, They allege that the whisky tax should be repealed because It requires so much capital to rim the business successfully, and that the country has reached that condition when the abolition of internal revenue taxes and higher duties on articles coming in competition with American manufactures is imperatively demanded. A few Western members who have been approached on the subject do not regard the scheme with favor. Miss Moorü did not speak to him» nor was she introduced to Mr. Stevens. When at her home with Mrs. Harwood, she asked who the gentleman was, and said that he had tried to flirt with her and had waved his handkerchief, etc., etc., describing the ways of some of the so-called society people, who Uve on waves3 the handkerchiei, imdr whoare termed mashers and flirts. After Miss Moore had left towu Mrs. Harwood is said, to have received two letters from a party snpposed to be Mr, Stevens, atid one a.sked her to go to Chicago with him and gave the usual ambunt of to be found in this kind of letters. By some manner Mrs. Harwood, with her husband and Miss Mae’s brother, traced tlm matter down, using decoys and finally, to verify the matters as to the hand writing, a young man wrote to Mr, Stevens eliciting a letter froni him in his own hand writing,which tallied with those in the notes to Mao; lTi« Death Rate.

PRICE ONE CEN' JOLIBIT? OOM^HSIgr>. OUR WASHINGTON LETTER. / ■ - Roomp Qf tbe National Press Assodatio». Washington, D. C., Jan. 7, 1882, Congress reassembled, after the holiday reces.s, on the 5th, and after a brief session the House adjourned to the Otln Mr. Orth, of Indiana, filed Aérious charges against SpilskeFKdmf; tor having snubbed" him, Orth, by putting him on unimportant committees.    .    i It is apparent that Keifer has so arranged the committees as to throw most of the old Republican leaders into the background. Whether this w^as done in accordance with an ambitious scheme of the Speaker or for want of judgment, filié fact is now clear that the party made^istake in the eelection oflAspeaker—a mistake for which they are already very sor ry. They have atl at once fouid out that the speaker has too much power, and propose to provide for some other and better method for organizing the committees. The Speaker of the House has now more power over legislation than the President, and the Presiiíent has altogether too much—in fact, if this government should ever evolute Into a true republic, the President will be deprived of the veto power, and the Speakers have no more to about who shall serve on committees than any other member. Congressman Cobb, of Indiana, is reported in the “Washington Post” of the 5th, as saying that the Republicans will undoubtedly try to stop the coinage of the silver dollar, in accordance with the rec-commendition of Secretary Folger and President Arthur, but that the Democrats will resist tt as a body. He adds, «It is bard to tell what the Greenbackers will do. In view of the principles they have advo-cated, they should act with the Democrats in resisting any change; but it is difficult to anticipate the action of a Greenbacker He has no fixed principles of bis own and is inclined to go with the Republicaus.” Congressman Cobb hdds his seat in the It Ibr ^rs; Cy AMBBICAN CITIES.

Pegram, deceased, an old resident, and much esteemed, died fiOUSe~ail(l hSS held it for y^afs;- by the consent of the Greenback voters of his district, who support him because he professes to be as good a Greenbacker as anybody wlien he is a candidate, yet, after he gets to Congress, he thus gratuitously insults the whole Greenback parly. The fact is—and Mr. Cobb Ipiows it—the Democrats are the uncertain fellows. The Republican party las a defiifite policy on the nioney question, t is in favor of demonetizing the silver dollar of our dadies, calling in and destroying the greenbacks, and replacing both with National Bank Notes. The Denioci'atic party is divided, but the leaders are in full accord with the Republican policy, and they control the old machine. The Senate committee investigation of John SLerman is piling up a mass of most damaging proof of the venality and corriq)-tlon of that old sbylock. The charges re-feri-ed to in my recent letter are being sustained by sworn witnesses; yet the general opinion is that his senatorial colleagues will whitewash him. Like the jury of the celebrated “hog-stealing ca§e,” the majority of the senators have had slices of the pork. Politicians here are in daily expectation of the appointment of ex-senator...J¿argent, of California, as 8eeretary of the Interior, and Indian Insiiector Pollock, of Illinois, as Commissioner of Indian aflairs. iSargeut cannot but be án Improvement on Kirk-woody and Col. Pollock has the natural and the acquired qualifications for a first class commissioner, while Price has neither the ability nor the experience necessary to run the Indian office, nor the honesty wliich a man who serves the. public should have. Great interest centr^ in the , contested seats in the House, and the Democrats are much exercised over the certainty that Lynch of Mississippi, Lowe, of Alabama, and other Groeubackers and Independents, will soon occupy seats now fraudulently held by Bourbon Democrats.
