TUE NOMINATION OF SENATOR WHITE.
About half-past 2 o'clock the presid

his speech for a moment, so that the
senate might receive a message from
the president of the United States.
Tho message was thereupon delivered
by Mr. Pruden, one of the president
aecreteries, in the shape of a large of
ficial envelope, Wnen this was
opened it was found to contain the
nomination of Senator White, of
Louisiana, as associate justice of the
United States. The seuators evinced
the keenest interest in it. They gath
ered together in small groups all over
the chamber and commended, rather
than discussed, the nomination. From
that timo on thre was no interest
manifested in Mr Daniels' speech, and
at 3 p.m. he yielded to a motion of Mr.

Wii.kes-Bauuk, Pa, Feb. 19 To

would never dream that a catastrophe
had ever occurred there, and but few
curiosity seekers ware seen at the Gay

learned there is not a ray of hope of

of it is that it will be many days yet

quantities all day long.
The work of the rescuing parties is
