VOL. XV. NO. 120.
of the Recent
We briefly stated the fact yesterday, says the
Buffalo Express of Saturday, that three young
men, In attempting to cross the river above
Niagara Falls in a small boat Thursday after
noon, bad been carried over the falls.
The three men arrived at the falls on the 12 20
train from Buffalo' Thursday noon, and pro
ceeded directly from the depot to the Eagle
House, near by, which is kept by Christ- Gamui.
They remained there about half an hour, mak
ing few remarks, and merely asking of the pro
prietor permission to leave their boxes and
portable table behind the counter until thev re
turned. The property referred to consisted" of a
good sized oblong box, full of packages of
prize candy, an envelope box containing a lot of
cheap jewelry, brass rings, etc., and a three
legged stand, such as all itinerant peddlers
After leaving Gamm's they went up the river
bank about a quarter of a mile to a little boat
house kept by a family named Walker. Here,
after some hesitation on the part of the .lad in
charge, they obtained a flat bottom row-boat
and started across the river apparently for Chip
pewa. The German, who was the largest as
- well as the most intelligent of the party, handled
the oars.
The course taken by the boat was straight for
the other Elde. The current at this point of the
river runs swiftest, and not many moments
elapsed from the time the unfortunate trio left
the boat-house before the resistless current took
complete mastery of the frail craft and carried
it with fearful rapidity towards the seething tor
rent that crests the precipice. The stout oars
man continued to apply his oars with energy
for about a minute after the current struck the
boat, but very soon the craft seemed to break in
two simultaneously with its capsizing, and the
horror-stricken spectators on shore next saw
the three struggling in the rushing waters. As
they appproached Street's Island, three
men who happened to be witnesses of
the accident ran to the edge of the bank in
hopes of rendering assistance to the drowning
men, out aanouija one 01 me tnree was carried
within five feet and the others not a dozen feet
from the shore, it was found impossible to suc
cor them. One of the men informed our re
porter that, had he been able to get a pole or
rail of any kind, he surely could have saved one
or two of the ill-faled men. The largest, it is
sold, swam for some distance in direction of the
island, bnt the current was too strong for him,
and be was carried struggling to the brink and
hurled, all conscious, into the abyss below. The
other two were drowned ere they passed the
island, as their bodies were seen to float in-
animately just above the Falls.
Mr. Garaui, keeper of the saloon where their
things were left, says they were all young men
their ages probably ranging between eighteen
and twenty-two well but cheaply dressed
and easy and careless in their manners. One
was an Irishman, one a German, and the other
a Jew. A police officer who saw then remarked
that they looked "just like any intinerant ped
dlers." CAST ASHORB.
Yesterday forenoon a singular object was
observed "lying in the water almost under the
new Suspension Bridge, on the Canadian side
of the river, and upon investigation it was
lound to be a large piece of flesh torn from the
trunk, apparently at the hip. It wat taken in
charge by the authorities on the other side, and
we believe quietly interred during the afternoon.
No other trace or vestige of the lost men had
been seen up to six o'clock last evening.
A Man Crushed to Death lu the Cincinnati
ltallroad Iron Works.
A fearful accident occured yesterday evening
in the Cincinnati Railroad iron works, which
resulted in 6hockinglv crushing to death a work
man named Win. C. Jones. It seems Mr. Jones
waB a hooker-np at the muck rolls. At the
time the accident occurred, a bloom weighing
about eight hundred pounds was passing be
tween the rolls. Mr. Jones, who held the hook,
instead of catching the bloom at the end as it
came out, put the hook under the side, and,
the heavy weight coming suddenly down
upon the implement, threw the man upon
the belting that connects with the roller
near the floor. A moment more and the
moving leather had conducted the victim
into the jaws of death. Feet foremost, he
passed between the end of the roller over which
the bell for running the machinery moved, and
the coupling attached to the end of the roller
immediately above. To stop the machinery was
the work of a moment, but in that point of time
the man had gone crushing through until all bat
the head had been flattened into a shapeless
mass. The very food that the man had taken
into his stomach exuded from the mouth, and
death came so suddenly that the hand caught by
one of the employes aid not so much as quiver
from the awful shock.
It appears that he fell about a week ago near
the same place, but escaped with a cut about the
head. This is the first man that has ever been
killed at the works, though they have had some
hairbreadth escapes Cincinnati Gazette, Satur
Pittsburg Excited An Extra Police Force
Called Out.
A scene of a somewhat riotous character oc
curred between 12 and 1 o'clock this morning in
the Fifth ward, commonly known as the "Bull
Run" district. One of the police officers on duty
in the locality got upon the track of Edward
Bradford, one of the escaped prisoners from the
county workhouse, and when the officer
attempted to arrest him he resisted, and his
friends came to his assistance. The officer, find
ing the opposing force too strong for him, re
treated in good order and "rapped" for assist
ance. One or two officers responded, but the
opposing force had by this time taken refuge in
a stable, and having armed themselves with
brickbats and boulders, offered a very formida
ble resistance. Notice was tent to the office of
the Captain of the Night Watch, who summoned
about twenty of the night men and despatched
them to the scene of the conflict. The stable
was stormed, and after a siene of about poe hour
the walls were reached, and by breaking through
the roof the officers effected an entrance to the
stronghold of the enemy and captured the entire
force. The prisoners were conducted to the
lock-up, where they were provided with quarters
for the night. During the engagement Officer
Keifer received a wound on the head by a horse
shoe thrown by one of the -belligerents. Pitts

The Mileage (lucatlnit.
The Committee on the Judiciary, to whom
was referred the resolution of the Senate re
questing the committee to examine and report
whether the members of the Senate are entitled
to mileage at the present special session, In
their report allude to the various acts on the
subject, and conclude by saying that the act of
July 28, 1866, declares that the compensation
of each Senator shall be five thousand
dollars per annum, and in addition thereto
mileage at the rate of twenty cents
per mile, to bo estimated by the nearest route
usually travelled in going to and returning from
each regular session. By implication this statute
repeals all former laws inconsistent with its pro
visions, and in the opinion of the committee
limits the compensation and mileage of Senators
to five thousand dollars per annum, and mileage
in goiDg to and returning from the regular ses
sions of Congress. The committee therefore
report that the members of the Senate are not
entitled to mileage at the present special session.
The Contumacious Correspondents.
The act of 1857 provides when any witness
shall refuse to answer questions put byany com
mittee of either branch of Congress, the fact
Eball be reported to the Senate or House, when
it shall be the duty of the presiding officer to
certify the same to the District Attorney, in
order that the matter maybe brought before the

Government Weather Report.
War Department, Office of Tns cuikf Signal
Officer, Washington, May 2 10 A. M Synop
sis for the past twenty-lour hours: Threatening
weather with light rains prevailed on Sunday morn
liiK from Michigan to Louisiana. These have since
continued to slowly progress northeastward, ex
tending for a snort time rrom trim une to Lake su
perior. Clear wether has continued in tne Southern
States, but cloudy and threatening weather is now
extending from New Hampshire to West Virginia,
and thence to Louisiana. Clearing and lear
weather, with northwest winds, now prevails from
Indiana to Arkancas ana northward and westward.
1 he area of lowest barometer is central over North
ern New York, whence the pressure Increases as
we progress southward and westward.
Probabilities It is probable that the rain will
continue during the day on the Gulf coast of Florida.
and that threatening weather, with occasional light
rains,wlll extend from Virginia northward and east
ward. Clear weather, with fresh northwest winds,
will probably prevail on the upper lakes and the
Mississippi valley. The conditions are favorable for

Evecial Despatch to The Evening Telegraph.
IIarrisburq, May 23. Dr. Shurlock, Chair
man, has issued a call for a caucus of Republi
can members, to be held this evening, to con
sider what policy should be pursued with refer
ence to the course adopted by the Democratic
Senate on Saturday. The impression seems to
be that if an adjournment resolution is sent
into the House this evening it will be adopted,
and the Legislature will adjourn to-morrow
without providing for the ordinary expenses of
the State government.
A conference of prominent members of both
bouses was held in Philadelphia on Saturday
night, but no satisfactory conclusion was ar
rived at. This morning the Impression prevails
that the position assumed by the Democracy of
the Senate was merely intended as an attempt
to intimidate the Republicans into passing the
Registry law amendments, and that they bad no
intention that their resolutions, which were the
result of a week's caucusing, should ever reach
the House.
The Republicans are willing that the Demo
crats should'take the responsibility in prevent
ing the passage of the Appropriation bill, of
closing our schools and the charitable Institu
tions of the fctate.
