IBrlClAL TELEGRAM TO TBX DISPATCH.!
"Washington, May 7. Admiral Porter
is preparing a review of his movement at
the taking of Jfew Orleans, to show that he
didn't ran owar. Although General Butler
was also deeply immersed in books and pa
pers, preparing to "fire abroadside" at Por
ter, he had time to lean back in his chair,
chew his substitute for tobacco furiously,
and clinch his allegation of Porter's cow
ardice. In explanation of his speech at the
Boston banquet, wherein the accusation was
originally made, the General said:
"That speech was written four or five days
before the day on which it was delivered,
and copies of it were sent to the" various
morning newspapers in Boston. Those
papers did not report my speech; they set it
up from the slips furnished them. The state
ments made br me were neither new nor un
supported, as Porter will find out before he
Sets through with this matter. Now I want
to show you the true condition of affairs
which prevailed below 2few Orleans just
previous to and at the time of its capture."
A. SURPRISING KNOWLEDGE.
The General then traced out on a coast
survey map the various naval and military
movements, and showed an accurate ac
quaintance of detail which was almost sur
prising. He was thoronghly familiar with
locations and dates, and seems to have that
Fcrap of United States history at the tip of
his tongue. When he had concluded an ex
haustive summary he pushed the map aside
"The difference between Porter and my
self is easily seen, and the public ought not
to get its mental powers shaken up by over
thought. I say that Porter ran away down
the river because he was scared by that great
floating dock, the Louisiana a'hulk that
had no machinery, and was nnable to move
oi her own volition. I say that he warned
my troops to get away as fast as possible,
because the rebels were after them, and he
set us an example, which we did not fol
low, by taking the lead. This charge
doesn't rest on the unsupported testimony
of any one man. Parton, who is credited
. with being a careful historian, says on page
247 of his book: 'General Butler in New
Orleans Captain Porter's fleet was
COMING RAPIDLV DOWN THE RIVER,
propelled by a report that the celebrated
ram Manassas was after them. Why, Por
ter himself has never denied that He ad
mits it. Attempting to smooth it over some
what, he says he was towing his mortar ves
sels down for a supply of shells. There was
nb necessity for it. Pour or five steamers
were below, ready at any time to bring him
all thfj shells we had. Besides, what did he
. vnfc-.rith-the-.shells. The passage of the
"forts had been accomplished, and after that
morning he never fired a shell.
"Another excuse he gives for that hasty
trip down the river is that he was on his
way round to the rear of the forts. Now,
what on earth, or on water, was he going to
do there? The nearest point to which he
could bring his mortar fleet was eight miles
from the forts and the intervening distance
was a dense forest. Did he propose to shell
the works that he could not see by the aid of
mortars that hadn't enough range to do
much more than a third ot the distance?
Tut, tut. "What a foolish liar he is.
CBEDIT TO WHOM IT XS DUE.
"I want to give Porter credit for having
done a great deal. He generally obeyed or
ders, hut he did run away. He is, I under
stand, engaged in preparing a full explana
tion of this matter. 1 hope he is. "When he
does, then it will be time enough for me to
make a reply. If he doesn't put his foot in
it, I'm very'much mistaken. He can't tell
the truth, anyhow. He has attacked me
like a blackguard, bnt I don't propose to
take any such fight. This matter is going
to be settled once for all, and I'm going to
settle it I laid for him and I've caught
him," and here the General looked a little
like Sir Boyle Itoche. "He is as surelv
murdered as he lives. Either he or I will
be held up to the execration of the people of
these United States, and I 'assure you I
don't fear the consequences."
General Butler expects within a few davs
to have his attack on Admiral Porter com
pleted. It's evident that he made his charge
with clear foresight as to the consequences,
and that he had begun some time ago the
preparation of his coming paper.
porter's latest defense.
Admiral Porter in his last interview pro
duced some official orders complimenting
him on the part he took in the battle of New
Orleans, and said:
"That does not look as though I was run
ning away, does it? The rebels never
charged me with giving away an inch,
and we certainly should have heard
from them if they had succeeded in
tearing us off, cren if it was only for a little
while. Here is a statement from Colonel
liiggins, who commanded the iorts our
mortars were pounding at, "and the Admiral
read a letter from Colonel Higgins reciting
the terrible damage done to the fort by the
"How was all the damage done if we ran
awav?" continued the Admiral.
"It is all nonsense to sav we forsook our
duty even for an hour. The forts surren
"dered to me, and Butler knows it
His position is untenable and he never would
have attacked me had he been sober.
That speech of his was a drunken speech,
you know. I'll give him enough of a
reply, however, and I'll fire it at him lor the
next three weeks and then he will let me
alone for five years. I shall not hear any
more from him during my life time, for
I do not expect to live another five
years. I suppose be was celebrating
his capture ot New Orleans. He claims it,
I understand, although the city was in pos
session of the marine corps for fully three
days before Bntler and his troops got there.
I know that because I towed them up to

continue to come in fromNorthem Minnesota.
The fires are still raging in all directions, but
in many localities they have burned themselves
out. They have attacked the heavy pine
woods in many places, and the loss of timber
will be immense. All trainmen on roads lead

lines of fire passed through. The greatest loss
is in the destruction of railroau ties, telegraph
poles and cordwood. Several hundred thou
sand ties and thousands of cords of wood have
been burned. So far news has been received of
the destruction of a dozen buildings, three
near Barnum, and others in Wisconsin.

A FOOLHARDY SAILOR.
Captain Norton to Sail for Franco! In .a 30
New Tons, May 7. Captain Francis L.
Norton, of the Norton Construction and Ship
Building Company, ot New York and New Jer
sey, has built a handsome little yacht of the
non-sinkable, uncapslzable kind, invented by
himself, to be exhibited at the Paris Exposi
tion. Tne tiny craft will set out to-morrow
from Tompkinsville, S. L, on its transatlantic
voyage, with a crew of only two men. One of
the crew is Captain Joslah W. JLawlor, of Bos
ton, whose father D. J. Lawlor, is one of the
oldest naval architects in the country. His
companion will oe a Swedish sailor of experi
ence. The name of the yacht is Neverstnk. She
measures 30 feet on the water line and 11 feet
across the beam. She Is yawl rigged, carrying
a mainsail, foresail and jib, and a squaresail
for running free. She is constructed on the
Norton system of two distinct frames, the
outer one of which is so fashioned as to secure
the greatest speed consistent with safety. The
inner frame is really a perfect vessel of itself.
The keel is almost flat. The two frames are
so strongly joined as to do away with friction
and to render them practically one. Into the
space between the two frames, along the bot
tom and each side of the keel, a number of
metallic automatic water ballast chambers are
fitted. Longitudinal openings allow the sea
water to enter theso chambers in such a way as
to distribute the liquid ballast equally along

' CROKIN Is STILL MISSIHG.
His Friend Firm In the Belief That EcWoi
Chicago, May 7. There ia nothing par
ticularly new or startling in the Dr. Cronin
mystery to-day. The doctor' is simply still
unaccounted for. Mr. and Mrs. Conklin,
with whom the doctor lived, are still very
much perturbed about the affair. A reporter
found them to-day to be even more excited
than they were yesterday. When he en
tered the room Mrs. Conklin was pacing up
and down the room, talcing incoherently.
At last she stopped in front of the reporter
and said rather fiercely and with compressed
lips: "We know that Dr. Cronin was mur
dered." "That is a pretty Broad statement," said
"I know it is, and J comprehend the
gravity of it but when I say it I mean all
that the words imply. We know that Dr.
Cronin was murdered, for we have received
positive information to that effect"
Mr. Conklin then said: "All that my wife
has said is true. We have the tnlormation,
and have it from a most reliable source. If
you knew as much as I do about the inside
workings of the plots of the gang against
the doctor's lite you would be bewildered
and astounded. We are on the track of the
villains, and I have hired detectives to hunt
up the clews I am in possession of. There
is going to be a big surprise "
He was cut short at this point by an ad
monition from his wife to the effect that too
much had already been said, and all efforts
to secure any further statements about the
matter were fruitless.

with the best doctors I could hear of, but was
fast getting worse. My kidneys also became
diseased. I had pain across my back, bloating
of the bowels, and the water was highly col

melancholy and discouraged and thought I
could not live. Finally I began treatment with
the physicians of the Folypathic Medical and
