"Who are the -Rabbling Members? Falling of a Cleveland Bridge. Uarirg Robbery in Lancaster. Etc., Etc., Etc., Etc.. Etc., Etc PRESIDENT THIERS. Ills Paris Residence, Paris Correspondence (Slay 9) of the London Sewn. The interior of M. Thiers' house is beautifully arranged, and full to overflowing of costly works of art, bronzes, pictures, enamels, medallions, porcelain, rarely-bound books, engravings cabinets, and curious.f urniture. The study of M. Thiers is surrounded breast-high with book shelves loaded with brilliantly-bound volumes. Above the shelves on the walls are a series of well-executed copies in water color of the great master pieces of Italian art, most of them Raphaels; and all about the room, ou 6helves, in recesses, on tables, there are scattered bronzes that remind one of the glories of Italian sculpture here of Michael Angelo, and there of Verrochio. The position of the writing table seems to indicate some peculiarity of eyesight. The table is placed between two windows, the writer sits with his back to the pier which separates the two lights, and the light on either side slants over both shoulders, lorming an angle of shadows ou the page before him. When the writer lifts his eye irom the desk to the wall opposite, he will see a fair copy of the Last Judg ment; and there is nothing in the room upon which be can fix bis eye which will not sug gest to him mighty works of art, leading his thoughts to all that is most perfect in form and color. When, after entering this interesting room, the curiosity is a little satisfied with the treasures of art which fill it, what strikes one roost Is the order of the presiding genius. M. Thiers Is all for order everything in its place, and if it is not in its place, there is a paper to eay why. The room is at the top of the house, and it will be the first to sutler at the hands of the destroyer. THE SEIZURE OF THIERS' PROPERTY. Parte, May 9, Correspondent of the London Tetejraph, The removal of M. Thiers' furniture began this morning. Three vans arrived at his house at 9 o'clock, and brought the furniture to the Garde Meuble, Qua! d'Oreay. I visited the house of the Chief of the Executive Power. In the Cabinet of M. Thiers was a small iron bedstead he is said to have a mania for camp life. Over his desk was a portrait of himself and of bis lady and child. In the small dressing room there still remained many articles of a lady's toilet. The floor was covered with ladies' boots, band-boxes, etc. On the table of one of the drawing-rooms was a copy of "Lodge's Peerage and Baronetage." The prin cipal salon opens through three glass doors on a Dleasant but not lame garden. The Commls- salre de Police, in charge of the employes of the uarae juenuie, wno were removing tne fur niture, took every precaution that not the small ess article was abstracted by the crowd outside. The house will be demolished almost imme diately. The people in the crowd, in bitter lest. said that Thiers' 6hells would never reach his own house. THE SENATOR WHO BABBLES. An Acrimonious Wrangle In the Senate General Disclosures of the Secrets of Executive Sessions. A "Washington despatch to the New York World says: The Senate has virtually decided that It will Bend its two imprisoned recusant witnesses, to gether with two other recalcitrants in the per sons of the manager of the Western Union Telegraph office here and its operator at the Senate, to the Grand Jury of this District, to be Indicted for a misdemeanor by refusing to an swer questions propounded to them by the special Senate committee appointed to ascer tain who purloined a copy of the treaty of Washington. A pending resolution to discharge the first two from custody will be passed to morrow by the Senate, and will have that effect as well as to drop further Senatorial in vestigation. The report of this committee submitted to day makes no recommendations, but simply submits the evidence and the fact of the contemptof two additional witnesses. There was a warm, irrita ble, and needless discussion in the open session of the Senate this afternoon as to the individual responsibility for the recent investigation, which ended in several Senators openly stating in their defense the proceedings of the executive session on the resolution authorizing it. Mr. Wilson Inaugurated this by a slip of the tongue by charelne Mr. Conkling with having prepared the resolution in secret session, aud Mr. Carpen ter With caving oiierea . As Mr. Conkling had just denied in a pains taking personal explanation that he had insti tuted this investigation, or in effect had any thing to do with it, this lapsus lingua of Mr, Wilson fell on the Senate with the greatest pos sible merriment and astonishment. Mr. Conk- liner colored up crimson and addressed the Senator from Massachusetts very much after the manner in which Mr. Nye not he of Nevada went for the gentleman from China. It did turn out, however, just as Mr. Wilson stated, that Mr. Conkling, at the suggestions of other Senators, had drawn the resolution and that Mr. Carpenter bad ottered it. Mr. Wilson. after being severely lashed, got penitential and did not want to harm anybody. Finally one Senator after another got up and Bald no one Senator but all the Senators were responslble,and thus the two hours' debate ended in a general love-feast. Preceding all this, Mr. Chandler made a speech in earnest denunciation of the Senatorial reporter of the executive sessions of the Senate who bad done such excellent and faithful Bervlce lor tne press ior ten yeass. Jie was not a Democratic Senator, he said, for he was eoually accurate in reporting the Kepubli mn caucuses, for Democrats were not admitted; but he wanted his reports stopped and the guilty Senator expelled. A pleasant ripple of merri ment ran around the outer rows of Senatorial BPat at this charge, and many a sly glance was given toward the seat of one or two Senators v j mnru than tan vnarl In t.riA hrvl v WQO II au uccu muiv t".u kv. - - - 1 Father Cleveland, now almost 93 years of aee. and ior tne ia vcaro mmaiuu.ij .

The Flag-ship Colorado Ashore In the AVoosuag River The Corea Expedition The United States Steamer Benecla In a Cyclone. A letter from a gentleman on board the United States steamer Colorado, flag-ship of Rear AdmiralJohn Rodgers, dated Woosung, China, April 12, says that, when proceeding up the river, she grounded on a mud-bank at high water, and, being unable to get her afloat, Bhe was obliged to remain until the next tide. The water fell fourteen feet, leaving the ship high and dry, but she lay easy, and so little did she feel the effects of her position that the state room doors open and Bbut as easy as if she was afloat. The ship came off in due time, and pro ceeded to her anchorage uninjured. At the date f the writing she was preparing to lead the ex pedition 10 jorea. The Corea squadron will consist of the flarr- sliln Colorado, steam corvettes Benecla and Alaska, gunboat Monocacy and tender Palos. The ships take with them a crew of shipwrecked coreans picKea up by an American vessel, who will be landed an soon as the fleet arrives, and who will naturally inform their countrymen of tne Kind treatment received at the bands oi the eople who come to treat with them. should Admirei Jtodgers tall in bringing the Coreans to terms, he will use force, and is pro vided with all the appliances for vigorous pun ishment for their past misdeeds. Should the cxpcditlion accomplish its ends by peaceful ne gotiations, will return to Hong-Kong about the middle of May. Another letter from tne Lnitcd States steamer Benecla states that they have had seventeen cases of small-pox on board, but at the date of writing all hands were well. Two of the sick were left in the hospital at Yokohama. On the passage from loKOhama to llakodadi, and while in the Kurisino, or Japanese Gulf Stream, the Benecia encountered a cyclone, in which she was nearly lost. The first cutter was wasnea irom the davits, the dingey stove, the ward-room and cabin flooded with water, and the ship wet from stem .to Btern below. Following this she encountered a severe gale of wind up to 40 degrees north latitude, and for five days was trying to get to windward under canvas, out making leeway all the time steam was raised, and getting under the lee of the land, she arrived into llokadadi. All hands well on both ships. A FALLING BRIDGE. Startling Accident at Cleveland. The Cleveland Leader of yesterday says: One of the most startling and unexpected acci dents which could have occurred took place yes terday afternoon, resulting in the falling of the new fceneca street bridge which spans the canal. The cause of the accident is as follows: At about four o'clock the man in charge of the bridge, as well as others in the vicinity, observed a span of mules, drawing a wagsn heavily ladened with barrel staves, approaching upon a run. They plnnged upon the bridge, the driver being unable to control or check their speed. They took the right hand track, and might undoubtedly have croBBed without causing the accident, had the wagon not struck one of the iron supports of the bridge with fearful force, tearing it from Its fastenings and doubling it almost to a semi circle. At this time three teams were upon the bridge, one within a few feet of the landing, while two horses, drawing a canal boat, were directly underneath. As soon as the shock was experienced the bridge commenced to sway and settle, and al most instantly fell, precipitating those who were upon it into the canal among the timbers and heavy iron portions of the structure, and crusmng vo instant aeain tne two Horses attacnea to the boat, fortunately, no one of the drivers was killed, although the one who had charge of the mules was severely injured, to what extent is not yet known, as he was immediately taken in charge by a surgeon, whose opinion is not Juiiy given. It Is indeed wonderful that any could have escaped with their lives, as above the noor ot the bridge, as it lies in ruins, is a network of beavy iron castings and trames, irom wnose iau little less than a miracle could have shielded them. This bridge is what is known as a truss bridge, and was erected last fall by McNalry, Claflen & Co., and has always been considered perfectly secure, and would undoubtedly have stood the most severe tests for many years had not its structure been interfered with by the breaking of the portions described bv the mo mentum of the wagon. As Is usual with bridges of this class, the public has been warned against driving faster than a waiic wmie crossing it. DARING BURGLARY Bold Robbery of a Jewelry Store In Lan. caster, fa. The jewelry store of Mr. II. L. Zabm, in Lan- cester, was burglariously entered on Wednesday night and robbed. The Intelligencer of last niirht says: The thieves took with them eigh teen cold watches, most of them finished in buntine cases, about nfty sliver watches, two hundred cold rings, and seventy or eighty gold chains. I be thieves effected an entrance by opening a grate in the pavement in tront ox the store, which communicates with an Inner hinged grate, opening into the cellar under the front window. The stolen goods were taken from a showcase on the counter, and from the bulk window. The thieves were either alarmed before they had made a thorough search of the premises, or concluded that they Had made a suinclent haul for one night, as they left untouched a great deal of valuable gold ana silver in tne window and showcase they bad robbed, while the ad joining showcase, containing a great deal of solid silver ware, was not even opened. Neither was the money-till, nor the other cases and drawers containing many valuable wares. There were about nfty customer watches in tne store. all of wnlch are sate, togetner wun an otner customer lobbing work. I he thieves escaped with their plunder In the same way they entered the premises, belDg unobserved by either the public or private ponce. THE l'KIK RING.

The Desperate Struggle of an Erie Comluc lor viiix a tar 'i mei. From the Port Jervis Gazette, May 82. For tbree or four months the freight trains on tbe Erie, while delayed on the eastern side of Bergen tunnel, have been repeatedly robbed bv professional car thieves, uetectives nave been detailed to ferret out the perpetrators, but with poor success. The thieves secrete them selves on the old cars standing on the side track, and when a train stops they enter the cars with false keys, and take whatever Tamable goods thev may find. Last night conductor John L. Marvin, of extra 33, discoverdd three thieves operating on a car in his train. He grasped one of them by the collar. The other two ran away. The thief struck Marvin a beavy blow on the left side of the head with what was evidently an Iron bolt, cutting a deep gash about two inches long. Al though partially stunned, Marvin sun retained his grasp on the thiei's collar. The thief was a powerful man, and dragged Marvin under the car to the other side of tbe track. Tbe conductor managed to draw his putoi, but the thief grasped if before be could use It. There was a strap on the pistol through which Marvin had one hand, the other still graspiug the coat collar, which was tearing away. The thief seized the pistol with both hauds, and by a sudden wrench broke the strap, after sinking It deep into the flesh of one of the conductor's fingers, cutting a severe gash, lie then freed himeelf from Marvin s grasp, and took to his heels, leaving his bat la possession of the deter mined conductor, who was covered with blood when he returned to bis cabcoe.
