The celebrated steamship "Great East-

in the meantime slie is not disposed of to

quite eventful, and although twenty three
years old, she is yet the largest vessel
that has ever been built- The following
clipped from an English exchange gives
a correct account of her dimensions: she
is 22,927 tons builder's, 18,915 tons gross,
and 13,344 tons net register, and was
i built from designs and the superintend-
ence of the late Mr. I. K. Brunei, by the

London, Oct. 24.—Several more arrests
under the coercion act were made in Ire-
land to-dav, including Miss Hobnett, of
Bollydehod, for persistency in exhibiting
a copy of the ' no rent" manifesto in a
window of her house.
i every variety of form. As though dis-
j satistied with her late action, and wish-
i ing to |,ive us a heavenly view, our bal-
loon took an upward turn, carrying us
4,000 fest above the strata of clouds anil
literally burying us in milk for an hour.
Meanwhile the rain poured m torrents.
Collecting on the outside ot the balloon,
it poured down the mouth of the bag into
the basket in a steady stream, compelling
me to put away my instruments. But it
was useless. There was not a dry pin
head among them. At 12 2-2 p. m., the
highest known elevation was reached,
being 9,GOO feet. Firm the last person
spoken we found that we were forty
indes trom St. Paul, and when we de-
scended, at 21-2 p. in., on the west bank
of a river, one-half mile inland, we con-
cluded that we were in the State of Min-
nesota, probably forty miles north of St.
Paul, on the Mississippi River. With
this supposition in mind, we stepped out
of our car luto about eighteen inches of
ice water, and found that we were in a
cranberry bog, and had to get out. To
recite our experience after that for the
succeeding five days is too horrible. VVe
walked five days up to the knees through
boggy swamps, without food, except half
a pint of berries. The wolves and bears
snarled around us at night. We slept
on the wet ground at night, through
heavy frosts, only to start again in the
morning through the swamps, tailing
over muddy logs at every step. At 4 j).
m. of the tilth day we reached Flambeau
River, and were carried across by wood-
men, and here we are, enjoying the
things before us.''

Yesterday afternoon,about three o'clock
a little giil and boy, about eight and
eleven years, respectively, children of Oc-
tave Lefebyrs, a laborer at Laprairie, were
playing on an old door in the river op-
posite the village. The wind was rather
strong and a gust carried the plank with
its living freight iii'O the middle of the
current which bore them rapidly out of
.sight ot their home. They clung together
and held their perilous position as the
stream bore them mile alter mile from
their home. The steamer Laprairie pass-
ed them. Their screams could be heard
and were answered, but no assistance
came to them. The steamer Prince Ar-
thur also passed tlieni near the Victoria
bridge, but the captain said the current
was too strong to allow of his rescuing
them. He, however, notified the river
police, but the children floated on until
they came to the Longuenil terry wharf.
There they were rescued by the captain
of a barge, Mr. Dessanlt, and given into
charge of a carter named Zepherin St.
Bilaire. They were taken home by Mr.
Thompson, of Hochelage, and a telegram
was sent to their parents to say what had
become of their missing children. They
had thus drifted over ten miles. Manv
think it strange that two steamers should
have parsed them without lowering a
bo it.—[Montreal Witness.

Clarksville, July 1381. "
Onr fellow citizen Mr. M. II. Morrison,
returned trom St. Louis on Wednesday
evening, and as will be saen, has been
purveying to the appetites ot our citizens.
At tlie depot we were told that he had
sent forward a large stcck.
The Texarkana Democrat is severe on
the circus company which exhibited here
on the 19th. Those who witnessed the
performance here said the best part of it
was the minstrel show after the main per
forniance, lor which only a dime was
charged. Most of these travelling circus
companies are arrant humbugs, but this
last drew a good audience—a tent lull.
The Democrat says:
"The circus reached the city in time to
play the evening engagement. It came
in a baggage car and was without rider
er animal. It contained several jackass-
es, we understand, and was visited by
uiany more. The misrepresentations of |)0ur
such abortionists should be treated with i '
Chicago, October 21.—Prof. King and
his companion, Mr. Hashagan ofthe sig
nal service arrived at Chippewa Falls,
Wis., this morning, footsore and ragged,
having made their way with great dilli-
culty, through tlio woods from a point
sixty-live miles north, in Barron county,
where they landed 011 Friday night last.
Mr. liashagan's account of their experi
ences is substantially as follows:
"Five minutes after leaving terra lirma
we reached an altitude of feet, mov-
ing southwest. A few minutes later we
reached an upper current moving slowly
westward, so slowiy that, we barely inov
ed, with Chicago's myriad ot twinkling
lights beneath, and apparently far away.
We remained there, suspended, neither
rising nor falling, several hours, but at
length a putt of eir sent us southwest,
chaugiug before morning to west and
northwest. While going southwest we
remained becalmed tor three hours,
swinging in a circle oxer a small city that
from its location I judged to be i'eoria,
111. After getting tired of the earthly
stars we turned in—that i.-, took 'cat
naps.' At. 5:15 a. m. 011 Friday, we pass
ed over Spring Volley, Wis, startling
the natives by dragging our drag rope
over their roofs, and one ambitious fel-
low, probablv thinking we were '(.) d
Nick' with his legion, sent a shot alter
us. A t !):40 we passed over Toinah. At
9:50 we iose among the clouds and lost
sight ot mother earth for a few hours.
The wind increasing, carried us at a rau-
id rate, probably forty or filty miles an
not being able to discern sta-

we were or what course we were pnrsn

Many merchants in this country adopt the policy of selling goods for all
they can get, and grind their customers down. My plan is the
contrary, the lower I can seli my goods the greater pleas-

friends and customers, and all are enabled
to live. I therefore ask everybody to
come and examine my stock of
