VOL. XV. NO. 132J
On of the Anneke Jaui Heirs Bought Off
for 91,000,000 A Grocer of Indianapolis
the Lucky Person.
From ths Indianapolis (net.) Journal, June 8.
Indianapolis is steadily keeping pace with her
Bister cities in the matter of first-class sensa
tions. The last we have to chronicle is one in
reference to a settlement of some New York pro
perty, by which Mr. H. W. Caldwell, a well
known grocer of this city, becomes possessed of
a cool million. The folio wine is a brief historr
of the case: For the past thirty or forty years

with the movement of the Anneke Jans heirs
to obtain possession of the Trinity Church
property. They based their expectations
upon tne fact that one or two Annekes are in
the family, and some deeds, leases, and other
papers that have been handed down through
the family. Finally they all became disgusted
and gave up the claim, refusing to have any
thing further to do with the matter. These
papers came into the possession of Mr. Caldwell,
and when he received a letter from an uncle In
the South saying that a representative of the
Anneke Jans heirs had called upon him for
Information which he was supposed to possess in
reference to the claim be turned his whole atten
tion to the matter of looking up the record. Ho
finally became convinced that the papers he held
were of lb greatest value to TrinltyChurch cor
poration, and accordingly, about five years
bince, he made a proposition to the trustees to
cell them for $100,000, which was refused. Mr.
Caldwell then made another examination, and
discovered that tbe papers he held referred to
eight acres of land immediately adjoining the
Trinity Church property, fronting on Fulton
street and Broadway. Further examination
showed that in the year 1773 John Cosine, his
great grandfather, leased the property for
ninety-nine years, previous to removing to Penn
sylvania. In leases of this kind, seldom any
thing is heard of the property again by the heirs
of the original owner, but in this instance Mr.
Caldwell cleurly and fullv established tbe record
to the property, the lease on which expired in
1SG3. lie made another proposition, this time
to the persons occupying the eight acres, offer
ing to sell his Individual interest and the papers
in his possession for one million dollars. After
examining Mr. Caldwell's papers and the
records, the gentlemen, through their agent,
agreed to the terms, and on last Friday Mr.
Caldwell left for New York to close np the
transfer. Yesterday he returned home, having
in his possession tbe authority of the occupants
to draw on them for sl,000,000. Mr. Caldwell
says that after arranging his business matters in
this city he will spend the rest of his days in
Kentucky, which is the native State of himself
and wife" He takes his good fortune very con
siderately, but says he is on the bunt for more.
While In New York he learned of 300 acres in
Harlem that was in the possession ! of
John Cosine at the time of the lease of the
eight acres referred to above, and he is satisfied
that he can work out full and satisfactory claim
to a possession of that property. If he does

How the Captive was Received at Ver
sailles. Versailles (Slay 21) Correspondence London Timet.
Never have I witnessed a scene of greater ex
citement than the entry of Rochefort into Ver
sailles as a prisoner to-day He was brought in
by the St. Germain road, and was seated in a
family omnibus drawn by four horses. First
came a squadron of gendarmes, then the omni
bus, surrounded by Chasseurs d'Afrique, and
lastly a squadron of the same corps, la the
vehicle with Kocbefort were his secretary,
Monrlot, and four police agents dressed in
plain clothes. Outside the ommibus
were an officer of the gendarmerie In
uniform and two or three sergents de ville not
in unliorm. Kocneforts moustache had dis
appeared. He bad himself shaved closely be
fore setting out from Paris in order to disguise
himself, but there was no mistaking him. It
was Ilk o'clock in the afternoon when the
cortege, arriving at the end of the Boule
vard da Roi. entered the Rue des Reser
voirs. Every one ran' into the street, and
shouts of execration were raised on all sides.
It was no mere demonstration of a mob. The
citizens of all classes joined in it. One man
ventured to cry. ''Vive Rochefort! He was
kicked by several persons who happened to be
near him, and was saved from farther violence
only by arrest at the hands of the sergents de
rille. Along the Rue des Reservoirs, the Rue de
la rompe, the Place Hocbe, the Rue de Uoche,
and the Avenue bu Cloud, Rochefort was
greeted with incessant shouts of "A bas V assas
sin: a vied le briaand: amort!" The naoele
wanted to have him out of the omnibus, and it
was with (liUlculty the cavalry prevented them
from dragging him out and inflicting summary
execution. The cavalcade was obliged to go at
a slow pace, but finally he was safely lodged in
I ail. I believe that but for the precautions taken
y the Government he would have been killed
before he got near it. The demand to have
an example made of him, and the dissatisfac
tion at seeing him brought to prison in a car
riage, were loua ana general.
A Philadelphia Lady Goes oil the Stage

From the A'eui Qrltans Timet, May 25.
About fifteen years ago a very fine-looking
young woman appeared on the stage of the Va
rieties, then the Gaieties, of this city, under the
management of Dion Bouclcault. She was of
an excellent family in Philadelphia, had suf
fered treat reverses of fortune: and beintr ros
tested of talents, beauty, and a great love of the
drama, naturallv sought to signalize herself,
and exploit her talents and charms by a theatrl
cal engagement. This she procured in this city
from Mr. Bouclcault, who, knowing the high
appreciation of natural beauty by the stock
holders of the Gaieties, justly calculated that
the would prove a great hit. In this he was not
The debutante at the Gaieties toon became a
great card, and the front seats of the parquet
were always secured when she appeared by
some of our solid men, who were regarded as
connoisseurs in the special line ot attractiveness
in which she was so Highly endowed. The sea
son passed, however, and the lady disappeared
from this scene. She had passed from the recol
lection of her old admirers, and, we presumed
with others, had at last attained what was un
charitably expected to be the goal of her ambi
tion ana graceful Bearing, ana settled down ks
the beautiful wife of soma "wealthy gentleman
who was capable of appreciating s much beauty
- and elegance. ,
Bit the latest fashionable intelligence from
the Old World has shown that this was aa erro
neous conclusion. The Court Journal, of Lou-
don, announces the recent marriage of tbe ele
cant Vlise Jetsle McLean to Lord Cowper, sen of
tke late Lord Palmerston, the possessor of the
handsome Income of 140,000. The "boo'ful"
walking lady of the Gaieties has now become
the stately and elegant Lady Cowper. She will
adorn the brilliant circle which she has entered,
aad will, we doubt sot, worthily fill the place
once occupied with so much eclat by the accom
plished wife of England's famous premier.

Terrible Destruction toy an Earthquake In
China Nearly Three Thousand Priests,
Soldiers, and People Killed.
Washington, June 5. Our Minister In
China, Governor Lowe, has forwarded to the
Secretary of State the following translation of a
report of an earthquake in Bathang, in Bzchucu,
made by the Chinese Governor-General of the
province in which it occurred: ;
'I have ascertained that Bathanr lies on a
very elevated spot, beyond the borders of the
province, about 2tt0 miles west from Ll-tane,
and more than thirty post stations from the
district town of Ta-tsien, on the high road to
Tibbet. '
'About 11 o'clock A. M. on the 11th of April.
1870, the earth trembled so violently that the
Government offices, temples, granaries, stone
and store-heuses and fortifications, with all the
common dwellings ana the lempie ot V ing-LIn,
were at once overthrown and ruined. The only
exception was the hall ia this Temple grounds
called Ta-Chao, which stood unharmed in its
'A few of the troops and people escaped, but
most of the Inmates were crushed and killed
under the falling timber and stone. Flames also
suddenly burst out in four, places, which strong
winds drove about until the heavens were dark
ened with smoke, and their roaring was mingled
with the lamentations ot tbe distressed people.
On the 13th tbe flames were beaten down, bat
the rumbling noises were still heard under
ground like distant thunder, and the earth
rocked and rolled like a ship in a storm, at the
mercy of the waves. The multiplied miseries
of the afflicted inhabitants were increased by a
thousand fears, but in about ten days matters
began to grow quiet and the motion te cease.
"Ihe gram collector at Uathang says that for
several days before the earthquake the water
had overflowed the dyke, but after it the earth
cracked in many places, and black, fetid water
spurted out in a furious manner. If one poked
it the spurting instantly followed (just as is the
case with the salt wells and fire wells in the
eastern part of the province); and this explains
how it happened that lire followed the earth
quake In Bathang.
as nearly as is ascertained, there were de
stroyed two large temples, the otlices of the
Collector oi urain lax, the local magistrate,
and the coloael, the Ting-Lin temple and nearly
00 fathoms of wall around it, and 351 rooms in
all inside; six smaller temples numbering 231
rooms, besides 1849 rooms and houses of the
common people. The number of people, sol
diers and llamas Killed by tbe crash was aaas,
among whom were the local magistrate and his
second in office.
"Tbe earthquake extended from Bathang
eastward to Fang-cbah-muh, westward to Nan
tun, on tbe south to Lln-tsah-shlh, and on the
north to tne salt wells of A-tuntsz, a circuit of
over 400 miles. It occurred simultaneously over
the whole of this region. In some places steep
bills split and sunk into deep pits; in others,
hills on level spots became precipitous cliffs,
and the roads and highways were rendered im
passable by obstructions.
" ice people were scattered ana neggarea line
autumn leaves, and this calamity to the people
of Bathang aid vicinity was really one of the
most distresslne and destructive that has hap
pened. The Governor-General twice memo
rialized the Emperor respecting it, who granted
aid to relieve the misery, reopen the roads be
tween the post-houses, and rebuild or repa
air the
offices and dwellings as they were needed.
Many are now resuming their occupations, and
the roads are everywhere passable.

The action of these cadets of the first class

The Beautiful Yacht Columbia A Descrip
tion or tne uraii.
We had the pleasure, at Camden, on Saturday,
of inspecting the yacht Columbia, which has
been built for Franklin Osgood, Esq., Commo
dore of the New York Yacht Squadron, When
it is recollected that this craft cost $70,000,
people may well say she is a beauty, and indeed
she is.
Her measurement Is 08 feet on tne water line,
118 feet on deck, 8 feet hold, ao feet beam,
and 230 tons carpenter's tonnage. Her deck is a
feature ot ltseii, oemg constructed enureiy oi
Oregon cedar. Her model is of exquisite pro
portions, and as she lay at anchor a short dis
tance from the shore, trimmed with gay bunting,
a beautiful sight was presented. t
The vessel is beautifully paintea in tints ana
gold, and tke joiners' work is finished with hard
wood. Tne main cabin is cuimonea wun Bril
liant and expensive satin damask, aad a very
handsome velvet carpet on the floor; also easy
chairs, camp-stools, and a centre-table, with a
richly embroidered cover. The owner's private
room opens out irom tue main saioua, is i weir a
feet by twenty and on the starboard side. It is
vet? elegantly fitted np, with bedstead, lounge,
marble-top washstand and bureau, and two large
mirrors. Attached to tue oea are very neavy
greea satin damask cartalns.
in tne rear oi mo uam-roum iucio ma ,nm
tanks, holding seventeen hundred gallons of
water. Forward of the entrance of the private
cabin is the kitchen, posstssing tue most per
fect culinary arraagements.
It u impossible to give, m a enei nonce, an
the features of the vessel. The main saloon, or
cabin, about twenty-five feet square, is megnlfi
cently furnished. It is adorned with mirrors,
and in the sixteen small niches between the mir
rors are small bronze Images; also two large
ones on the floor, representing Night and Morn
ing. The four sides of the mainmast in the
saloon are filled In with mirrors. In this room
are suspended pictures of the Wigeen and
Magic, formerly owned by Vice-Commodore
Osgood, and in the same room are two magnifi
cent cups, made out of massive silver washed
with gold, by Bailey & Co., of this city.
One of the cups is somewhat gondola shaped,
and has inscribed on it the following: "Pre
sented by the New York Yacht Club to Captain
Osgood, to commemorate the success of the
schooner Magic over the whole fleet in the race
for the Queeu's cup, August 8, 1870."

have moved out, while most of those living in
two-story houses have been compelled to move
into the second story.
Back of Claiborne street, on Canal, th ere is
an average depth of two feet of water. The
city authorities seem to be doing all they can
to alleviate the sufferings of the people. Every
available boat and skiff has been bronght Into
use. Policemen may be seen moving in almost
every direction, rendering such assistance as they
can, moviDg those who are in danger,
and distributing provisions to the needy. The
damage by this overflow cannot be estimated
with any degree of certainty. The shrubbery
and gardens have all been ruined. Houses are
damaged and property depreciated. The over
flow directly from the Lake Gentilly road quar
ter has caused heavy loss in the destruction of
many fine market-gardens, 9
The Milneburg and the Pohtchartraln Railroad
from Gentilly station is still overflowed. The
water in the lake is receding slowly. A train
came through from Mobile yesterday on the
Chattapooga Railroad. A passenger reports
about four miles of the road under water. 1 A
Jackson Railroad passenger, who came in this
morning, reports that the road is under water
for seven miles north of Pass Manchac. !
