Astounding Developments Con
cerning Bismarck Comprehen
sive Infidelity.
A correspondent of the World,
wriliug from Berlin ou June'2t, re
lates what purports to have been a
conversation between himself and the
renowned Prince Bismarck, which
will create a good deal of surprise
throughout Christendom. Iu the
course of the conversation Prince Bis
marck not only avows himself an in
fidel unqualifiedly, but discloses the
' revolting fact that his scheme for
strengthening the German Kmpire
consists in the idea of
God, and placing the Kmpire iu His
The correspondent quotes the fol
lowing as the words of Bismarck :
"It is the fight of the State—empire,
monarchy, or republic—agaiust God ;
and in this fight the State will get
the worst of it unless it succeeds in
destroying the idea of God, and plac
ing itself in his place. Meu say that
they must have somethiog to worship
—well, tfceD, let them worship the
State : let it be all in all ; let it take
the {Aftce of the family as well as of
the Daitv ; let it be the Deitv.'
The Prince, although filled with
the idea that the permanency of the
empire, or its greatness, must depend
upon obliterating the idea of God
from the minds of the people, express
ed himself as quite despondent at the
poor prospect of accomplishing that
undertaking. He did not think that
the cooperatiou of the King, or the
steadfastness of the Crown Prince,
could be counted on to a sufficient
length of time to complete the work.
It would require, he thought, about
two generations to do this effectually.
The words of Priuce Bismarck on
this point, according to the corre
spondent of the World, were:
"In two generations, if we had the
field wholly to ourselves, we could so
obliterate the idea of Goid,and of the
imaginary rights bestowed on man by
him as their creator, that the substi
tution of the Stale in his place would
be effected, and the Stats, as in pagan
Rome, be all iu all."
Bismarck appears to have been
vastly amused at the credulity uf
those Americans who imagined that
be took any interest in protestantism
beyond what JUDAS took in his Mas
ter —an interest looking to ultimate
betrayal and destruction. These
credulous Americans he gently char
acterized as "asses'' and "numbskull."
He said:
"Nothing has amused me more than
the praises which I have received
from the protestant Christians of Eng
land and America. The asses! I
have wished to crush Rome that 1
might crush Christianity. They
praise me for my services in the cause
of what they call'reformed Christianity!
If anything could console me for
the chagrin which I foresee I am to
endure far some time to come it would j
be to witness the amazement of these
good friends of mine when they un-'
derstand tUe truth. But understand
it they never will—they are numb- 1
We should not have directed atten- <
tion to assertions so nearly incredible j
as those which we have quoted from |
this correspondent but for the respect
ability and bigh character of the jour-1
nal in which they appear. We see
no room left for doubt that Count
Bismarck used the language attribu
ted to him.
As this disclosure places Bismarck
indirect antagonism to Christianity,
we apprehend the effect of it will be to
set all Christendom against him.
Countless shafts will be let fly st him
now from the pulpits and the press iu
every Christian land. It would have
been impossible for him to avow seuti
ments calculated to produce a greater
shock amoug the luillioua who have
hitherto looked upon him with admir
There is an old saying that misfortunes
never come singly. The Republicans in
the west are realizing this fact. Their |
party is disrupted by the farmers'
"granges," and now comes the report
from Chicago that the Germans are
refusing to support the party on account
of its bigotry.
Tbe Louisville Courier-Journal has
an admirably direct way of stating
things. It has never asserted that
General toward stole money from
the government. "He niereiy ser
reptitiously borrowed it permautly,
and remmembered to 'forget to keep
any record of the fact." Which is
Bourbon straight in literature.

Along the whole journey through this

reached —and shooting at them while

from which we copy the following:
Without occupying much of your
valuable space, ) beg leave to detail
an incident counected with the terri
ble hurricane that passed over the
Miami Valley on the evening of the
"glorious 4th."
On the well-known "old Anderson
Furm," stands or rather stood a line
oak grove. A fortnight since the
majestic trees stood erect and intact,
but now twothirds of them are lying
on the ground hurled down by the
relentless fury of the-last great storm,
Little did the storm demon think
wheu he set out upon his mission of
destruction that he was destined to
rob a tree of a secret which it has
scrupulously kept for eighty two
I have the facts of this storm inci
dent from the own lips of Mr.
Rogers, the present occupant of the
farm referred to, and a mtu of prover
bial veracity.
Upon the morning subsequent to
the storm, (Saturday) Mr. Rogers in
company with a "hired nran" proceed-1
ed to inquire into the extent of the
damage inflicted upon his premises,
and the first objective point was the
ruined grove. The centre tree of the
Klat was a noble oak, the king over
is fellows, and a tree which had
stood the ravages of time seemingly
unscathed for several centuries.
This tree had been snapped and felled
by the storm. Upon examining the
fallen giant for the purpose of ascer
taining its worth as rail timber Mr.
R. made a startling discovery.
This was nothing less than the fact
that the tree in falling had disgorged
a skeleton !
The bones were disconnected, yel-
low as gold with age, and scntlcted
promiscuously ovor several square foot i
ot pasturage. The wktill was almost
intact ; all the teeth mv.' two —molar* .
wort* still in their places, ami there (
was a rear on the left parietal bono 1
which looked like the nicimuto of
some fierce cavalry charge. The
humerus of the right arm was Matter
td, and save the three defecta just
mentioned the skeleton wheu put
togethei was without hlemish.
Die tree in fulling, I should have
mentioned, was rent asunder a task
not difficult of accomplishment wheu
1 refer to the fact thai an examina
tion found that at some remote date
the verv heart of the oak hud la-en
'cleft by lighting. Ftoiu u snot twen
ty feet from the ground upattnl to the
first great fork —a distance of teu feet
a hollow extended, and from this
cavity the skeleton had beeu hurled.
"If we but knew who he was," thought
my iuforiuant, Mr. 11., aud, strange
to say, a few minutes later the twain
discovered that the tree had also
disgorged a thrilling history.
An old-fashioned leathern pocket
or memorandum book lay in a re
markahle state of preset vatiou—
which no doubt hud I teen dropped in
to the reut made by the lightning, and
thua been preserved while its master
decayed. A few bra** buttons of old
and unique pattern were found near
the memorandum, hut it is with the
latter that we have to deal, this old
leather purse —entirely moueykaa—
contained sundry (taper* covered with
rude penciling*, quite difficult to trace,
as they were written on the backs of
army paves and military cousign
menu which dated as far hack as
Mr. Rogerscouveyed the boues to
his house, and set about to read the
memorandum of the captive of the
tree. Hut owing to his tailing eye
sight, he could decipher but little,
and this little a conglomerate mass
of disconnections. Hut still he read
euough to learu that the eyes that
once shone in the uow or bless socket*
often looked upon Washington in the
heat of battle, and amid the snows of
Valley Forge ; and the skeletou arm
when covered with tlesh and muscle
had struck many stalwart blows for
our country.
The man's name as gathered from
the papers was Roger Vauderberg,
a uative of Lancaster, Fa., and a
capuiu in the Revolutionary army.
Ue was an aide to Washington durii g
the retreat across the Jerseys, and
served a time in Arnold's headquar
ters at West Feint. In 171*1 he
inarchd with St. Clair against the
north-western Indians, aud in the fa
mous outbreak of that CSeucral on the
Wabash, Nov, ord, of the year just
written, he was wouuded and captur
ed. But while couveyed to
the Indian towu at Upper Fiqua—a
historical place well-known to your
readers—he effected his escape, but
fouud himself hard pressed by bis
savage foes, lie saw the hollow iu
the oak, and despite the mangled arm,
aud with the aid of a beach that grew
beside the giant then, he gained the
baveu and dropped therein. Then
catue a fearful discovery, lie had
miscalculated the depth ol the hollow
and there was no escape. O, the
story told by the dairy of the oak's
despairing prisoner. How rather
lhaa surrender to the torture of the
stake he chose death by starvation;
bow he wrote bis dairy iu the uncer
tain light and the snows?
Here is oue entry in the dairy :
"Nov. 10th. Five days without
food! when 1 sleep i dreaui of lus
cious fruits and flowing stream.*.
The stars laugh at my misery ! It is
suowingnow. 1 freeze while I starve.
God pitg me!"
The italicised words were supplied
by Mr. Rogers,as the trembling hand
1 oft-times refused to iudite plainly.
Never was such a record of suffer
ing traced by human ban!! before.
The entries cover a period of eleven
days, and in disjointed sentences is
toid the story ol SL Clair's defeat. —
The dairy is to be placed in my hands,
and with your permission I will tran
scribe it lor your coiunius.
Mr. Rogers has written to Lancas
ter to ascertain if any descendants of
the ill-fated captain live, if so they
shall have his boues.
Such, MY. Editor, is oue of the
freaks of the late storm, |>erpelraled
in our own county. How little
dreamed we that so near us has beeu
imprisoned for eighty-two years one
of the soldiers of the Revolution.
Often the starvling beard his red
foes at the foot of hn prison, but he

If the descendant* of Captain Van
dei berg cannot be discovered, 1 hope
that there will be enough patriotism
found in Miami County to erect a
monument over hi-* remains. The
story of the dairy will chill the hearts
of all who read it, and meet the eye
in sympathy for the noblo soldier of
bis country.

on Lexington street, will also be lost.
On Saratoga street, west from Park

both sides of the street, are burning.
On Mulberry street the fine row of
houses, commencing northeast corner
of Park street, and extendiug east to

A correspondent ef the World gives an
account ef one of the moat ferocious duel*
. ever fought ll occurred on tho evening
of July 4, in the Indian Territory, Medi
cine Lodge, a point which U a great re
sort for hunters during the colder month*.
The parties engaged in this desperate
fight were Hugh Anderson of Texas and
Arthur McCluskey of Kansas, both des
peradoes well known on the Frontier for
their recklessness of life. Anderson had
killed a brother of McCluskey in a dance
house fracas, and the latter sought him for
the express purpose of taking vengeance
upon him. A Texan guida named Rich
ards acted a* second for McCluskey, a
huge Kentuckian of the name of Harding
fulfilling a similar office for Anderson.
The Agreement.
By the terms agreed upon
ardt and Harding the antagonists were to
fight with revolvers and bowie knives—to
be placed bark to back at an interval of
twenty paces—to wheel and Areata |(i*en

shots to conduct the fight as each one
should (ioem it best to bis advantage. The
spot selected for the encounter wa* ia the
open prairie. The grass had been closely
cropped by the rattle leaving the turt firm,
yet clastic, and just tho thing for rough
and-tumble business. The inen met long
after sunset in the presence of a crowd of
hunters, trappers, railroad surveyors,
gnmblers, and Indians. The combatants
were duly placed, and the crowd awaited 1
with breathless interest the result.
The giving of the signal hud fallen by
lot to Harding. Staling to the principals,
wholly this time began to show sign* of
impatience, that this would be the report
of a pistol, he drew his own wca|>oii and j
discharged it, first asking the question and
receiving the u-ual answer that both were,

several of the clenched teeth and a portion {
of the tongue, Anally lodging in the base

had raised himself to a silking posture, taw
the movement and prepared lu meet it.

But the effort wa* too much for him. and

Kvery one u|>po*ed that thi*blow would

The fin*, time 1 wa* ever *wallowed u]
in a U>rut-cloud, it happened to ba in i
! suddenly generated, bail-storm ninibu
luring an ascension from Carlisle. Pa A
bail storm i* not a very large metoer, bu
it i* very Tiolent in iu gyratory actio)
and when it sucks a balloon into it* vorti
oal air hopper, the aeronaut may look ou
for a little rough usage, and not the lea*
of hi* trouble* will be a nausea similar I
that of sea *ickno**, following the swing
nig to and fro, compounded with gyra
tions, of the air-ship. I will, however
fur the present, describe an experience a
i traveling insid* it a thunder gust fori
distance of nearly a hundred miles a!on|
the Ohio Kieer, In a balloon voyage fron
Portsmouth, Ohio, to |Mt Pleasant, abou
twelve miles below Gallipolis. Straigb
' across the country from Portsmouth P
Gnllipolis is not much oeer bnlf the dis
lance it is by the course of the river, bu
thunder storms have a penchant to trai
their watery drapery along rivtr chan
The ascension was mad* in the after
noon, between four nnd five o'clock, an<
right in th* face of an approaching thua
, drr gust coming from tb* north west
, On atuining a height of tbra*-quarters a
- a mile, 1 discovered a second thunder gut
coming a long from the southwest. Mi
balloon was -ituated on th# apex of thi
two line* of th# approaching storms, am
already gave indications of being gobble*
up in the vortex #f cenlralixing air inci'
dent to storm clouds. 1 mada up my
mind to go into the whale's belly, not an
lirely regardless of consequence* ; but be
ing well provided with gat and ballast,]
wa* consoled with the knowledge that I
could escape from leviathan of the air by
using the mean* of gravitation in lattinj
' out jfas, or of Irritation by disposing oi
. ballatt
The twostornu wera now approaching,
as it were, in grand battl# array, with
thundt ring explosion*. The discharge* ol
lightning came vivid, sharp and freqaent
! and when the two storms clashed, thay be
came terrific. It was a scene of awftil
grandeur. I had a mind to escape by one
|or the other of the means just mentioned,
but like Lot * wife, 1 wa* curiaus enough
tu look hack—not to be turned into a pil
lar of salt, but to be well shaken—hurled
round and round a* it were by the nape of
the neck.
Tho intelligent render may here he re
; minded that a thunder storm it not an ac
' cidentally (.'undented, irregularly matted
body of watery vapor, at viewed from the
earth, but a geometrically formed and in
dividualiaed meteor and a mathematical
precition in its motion and cempanaaling
balance*. It it more or lett governed in
it* onward progrett by the undulation of
earth'i turface—the channel* if rivers,
valleyt and mountain gorge*. Thee* me
teor* often take thort turn* to pat* into a
deep valley. When they happen to
plunge againtt a mountain tide that li*a in
their direct courve, they often be
come tangled in the mountain top,
*a aying to and fro like Ihingt of life, and
thit give* rite to thote destructive moua
lain torrent* known at "cloud bunt*'"
The rain that would bo otherwise spread
over a great ruface i* by tlii* stand Still of
the meteor poured down against the im
mediately underneath surface of the moun
tain tide
It require* no strained imagination to
give interest to storm tcenet at viewed
from above them and in their midtt; and
when it is considered that a balloon it not
in the predicament of a ship at tea as in a
storm, the sotna may be viewed with an
a*urance of safety that it never realised
on the water. Tiie tea ship ha* two ele
ments to contend with. The air whirling
it around in the vortex ola storm, and the
thousand limes Uener water holding it in
it* embrace, bring* upon th* tea ship a
leverage and strain thatcratha* and cracks
it to piece*. The balloon be* but one ali
ment to contend with, end It matter* not
whether the current IsVin# mile en hour or
one hundred mile*; to the air passenger
it U all the Mine, for he knew* not that he
move* at all utile** be can see tome land
ruark te give him an idea of motion. In a
thunder cloud, however, there is a per
ceptible motion, net violent, but disagree
able. The motion la gyratory—a swing
ing to and fro and going round in a circle
at the taiua time-and this motion pre
duces nau>ea like tea tickneae The huge
black precipices of nimbi, or the brilliant
ly illuminated lava looking culrnuli, bave
not the terror giving charncter to the air
pettengn tbat the coral reels and leashere
j rocks have to th# tea passenger. The
reader is aow better prepared to resume
the thread of the narrative with compos
ure, since dashing against an atiiKttpbcr
ic boulder will not shock him.
These two storms merging into ona hav
ing met at aa angla in tha Course of the
river here It trend* off from a southwest
to a southeast direction of stream, it fol-j
tow-<i the course of the Ohio up to the 1
mouth of the Kenan ha river, end there it
made a turn up that watercourse. Halting
in this meteor, I was constantly surround- i
ad by electoral phenomena. While tha
discharges of lightning were almost inces
sant, thundering and crashing out of the
thick vapor with livid, xigxeg bolls dart
ing down toward tbe earth, they never
seemed to esplode neer to the balloon.
Most of tbe time tbe baloon was sailiag
in clear almesphere between the upper and
lower cloud, though right in front of it,
and within a few hundred yards, the upper
and lowsr cleuds were joined in the form
of a water spout, and from this conjoined
j mass the discharges were mainly taking
place, though uccaeionally amors distant
explosion would occur. Tha central explo
sions were so frequent and territc tbat I
dare not let tha balloon reck into the vor
tex, and in order to avoid this, I bad te
i pay out ballast and gas, causing the bel*
| loon to rise and fall, and by that means be
thrown outward in the upper cleud, when
ever the lower cloud had rocked itts near
! the central uprising air shower. This
I kind of maneuvering ha* been learned
from former experience In these meteors.
I One time the baileon got so far to the
; rear of the centre of the vertex between
the upper and iuwer cloud tbat fail into
! tha rays of the sua. This produced one of
the rarest spectacle* of rainbow light in
! the form of a parhelion, or aureola, as it is
technically termed, that my eyes ever
reeled on. It threw upon this black cen
tral cloud metier a beautiful prismatic

was for a moment para ItseU, nut by an
electric shock, but by a shudder of fright,
as it tee in ad (or tba moment tbal my air >
, bubble was in a blaa*. In an instant
mora I fait easier in mind, seeing that lb*
Are bad nut banned the balloon. Thai
thought now occurred. Am I not ventur
ing to far u|wa my philosophy of safety in
a thunder cloud? Besides, my balla.t
was pretty wall exhausted, and I bad bean
riding in a storm far mora than an hour, so
that I must be many miles from tba place,

Tba beeutitul grotto of Are would ap
• pear and d isappear a* the balloon happen
ed la fall in and out af the sunbeams blax
ing in between lb* upper and iowar
cloud. The balloon retracting the rnys of
light passirg through it caused sba pris
matic arch. Tba rain was discharged
with the rushing noise of water, it was
ovident,tbat the rain was descending to the
earth in torrents, and this, with tha heavy
and constant discharges of thunderbolt,
and the remarkable beauty of the aureola
! illuminating the interior of tha storm
cloud, gave it mora the character of a'
.cme ol enchantment then on* of reality.
I Thar* was a fearful fascination in the
grand phenomenon; and while it madeou*
I heart beat with amotion and a faaling ofl still persisted ' dragging on* along
aa the soldier ia dragged along in tha thick
aniak* af tha battle's cannon. It it im- 1
possible to fully and fniriy portray with
words the condition of mind and it* sur-,
rounding phenomena when sailing in the,
'midst of n good sixed thunder storm. It!
|it n sublimity not realiaabl* on tha sur
face of tb* a*rib, grand and majestic as,
the** meteors present themselves ta an ob
server on terra Arma.
Having now sailed within lb* folds ofj
this electrical meteor for over an hour,
' and for a distance af nearly a hundred
mil** by tha course of the Ohio river, and
viawad it fraro various positions, the lira
itad amount of ballast remaining on hand
admonished a prat anion for descant. Be
fore coming down, n dosan *r mora copies
of the Portsmouth daHy paper ware
thrown overboard and tbey wart soon
drawn into tha vertex of tba storm. One
of tbem fall into my bands tha naxt day,
a* will b* explained in the conclusion of
this narrative. I new commenced to de
scend slowly and cautiously, in order t*
look out for a safe landing place. As this
procees vu going on, the storm was mo?,
ing forward and away frtftn the balloon.
On coming dawn through the lower cloud
I found lha surface of Oallia county here
( abouU covered with forest; but some dis
tance ahead in my Una of direction a log
I cabin peered out from a little "clearing,"
c and I struck for this, and made a lodg
ment before the cabin door in the rain,
j greatly to the surprise of the family in
the house. Seeing the suddenly appear-
I ing apparation was nothing mere than
f flesh and blood, the good housewife cauti
ously, with the door slightly ajar, ventur
ed the question of, "Who are you T" In
dripping garments and with the most gen-
I lie speech at my command, I answered,
"A stranger, madam, in a strange land;
will you please help me a little?" Slill
I holding the doer, in her hand, she said,
"What is that?" pointing at the air-craft
j as it was swaying ever her bead. "A
I balloon, madam, just ceiue out of that
cloud." Tbedoor immediately flew open
and at the same time she eiclaimed,
"Come out, Jpe ; here's a man in a bal
loon that you read about the other day."
The uest morning 1 went out to Small's
Landing, a few miles off, to get on a Pitts
burg and Cincinnati packet to return
to Portsmouth, and thera I found one ef
the paper- referred to above, and which
thay told me bad fhllta down from a

There are scenes in our lives that seem
to become as indelibly impressed upon
tho tablet of the brain as is tha image an
the photographer's albuminoid membrane
and these storm scenes era of that charac
ter. The secret majesty of Nature therein
asserts its aupeMor divinity, and makes
