THE Washington Post speaking of the ex Congressmen lately killed by Mr, Ktncaid, the representative of the Louisville Times says: Wil liam Preston Taut bee was thirty nine years old, of tall figure, with a frame sinewy and strong. His ap pearance was that of an intelligent and good natured gentleman, and he had many friends. He studied for the ministry from 1875 to 1878, and for the law from 1873 to 1881, when he drifted into politics, and was elected to the Forty-ninth Con gress from the Tenth Kentncey district. He was re-elected to the Fiftieth Congress, and was one of foremost speakers of the House. He was not a candidate for re- nomination, It is understood that one of the measures recommended by the Pan American Congress is the construc tion of a continental railroad through the respective nations re presented In the Congress, to extend as far or farther south than Rio Janerlo, and to tap the chief cities of the Central and South American countries, a grand trunk with braiohes running to the commercial centres. It is proposed to con s truct it on the plan of the Pacific rail roads, by land grants, subsides, &c, each country through which it runs adopting such measures as it may deem best to aid the work. It is a grand scheme, and as a promoter of commerce between this country ana those, throws the ship subsidy busi ness, with all the subsidy boomers claim for it, clear Into the shade. A scheme of this magnitude will, of coarse, take time, but in these days of engineering achievements, pluck and Immense capital, it will not be many years before it is an accom plished fact Wi.mington Star.

The high handed and revolu tionary measures of Reed seem to have received the approval of the Repnblicac8,and the unblushing dis regard of States rights by Repub lican Senators, as shown in the admisssion of the Montana Sena tors, is applauded by administra tion organs throughout the country. It is evident that the party in power will hesitate at notbinghat will strengthen its savage warfaie on the States and ihe liberties of the people. The next national contest is narrowing down to the single question : Shall the Republic of Washington last, or shall it give place to the oligarchy of . Reed, Chandler and Harrison f McDnffee, in the midst of a great speech in the Senate said: "The people of the United States by a vast and almost countless majori ty are attached to the Constitu tion. If theycan be convinced that it is in danger they will fly to its rescue and save it." The sober, dispassionate senti ment of the American people is now, and always has been, in favor of Constitutional liberty, and the present conduct of the Republican party is the inevitable prelude to its destruction. 1 There is not much doubt of the passage of the bill to refund the direct land tax to the States which paid it, for the principle reason that a very large proportion of the 17, 000,000 paid out,' of the 120,000,000 levied will go to the Northern States. If the bill should not be . passed, however, tbe next more would be to enforce the collection In those States where it had n ot been paid, which would take abbot $3,000,000 oat of the South.

THE NEGLECTED INDUSTRY AGAIN. In yester Jay's paper we called attention to the canning of fruits and vegetables as a loDg neglected industry, and presented facts and figures to tbow that fruits and vegetables can be caDned on the farm3 of North Carolina at little expense and wiih great profit to the producers. The preMi ' is a most propitious period for tl;c .: anguration of this industry. The cold weather has checked vegetation generally, and utterly destroyed eomo of the earliest crops, but there is no reason to ap prehend that the yield of fruits and vegetables of 1890 will be lees than the average yearly production. Preparation should be made to secure it all. Peas, beans, to matoes, etc , that mature too late for the Eastern markets can be canned, and be made to supply the demands of our home markets. If this is the result we may yet have cause to bless the cold north wind with its snow aDd its frosts. A Servant's Deroiion to Mis Master. Kditjr t Journal: The story that oome to ub from Raleigh of a faithful old servant of the family of Uhas. . does, the forger, asking to be allowed to ef rye out bis young master's sentence to hard labor on the public roads, brings to mind the pathetic description in Scott's "Waverley " of the trial of Fergus Mac I ver. who was condemned to death for aiding Charles Edward, the "Pretender," in his attempt to overthrow the Bouse ot Hanover. Wiih Mac Iver was tried an humble clansman, Evan Dhu MaccombiCh, who, when allowed by the jadge to speak, aid : "I was only ganging to say, my lord. that if your excellent honour, and the honourable court, would let Vich Ian Vobr go free just thi once, and let him eae back to France, and no trouble King.

" A sort of laugh -was heard in the oourt at the extraordinary nature of the proposal. The judge checked this indecency, and Evan, looking sternly around, said: "If the Saxon gentlemen are laugh ing because a poor roan, such as me, thinks my life, or the life of six of my degree, ia worth that of Vich Ian Vohr, it's like enough they may be vera right; butif.tbey laugh tecause they think I would not keep my word, and come back to redeem him, I can tell them they ken neither the heart of a Hie landman, nor the honour of a gentle man.

BOGCE. THE MISSISSIPPI FLOOD. The Water Still Rising A Disastrous Flood Threatened. New Orleans, La., March 12 The Times-Democrat's Helena, Ark., special says: The river hin crawled up two inches during ths last twenty-four hours and it now marks forty-three feet and rive inches on the guage. Tbe water is now four feet tix inches below high water. The rise during the pres ent week will be gradual. Beginning next week ic will be more rapid, and the highest water will reach here Sun day. New Orleans, March 12 The Pic ayune's Greenville, Miss., special says the river stood here last evening forty seven and a half feet, and rising Re ports from the levees along the Missis sippi side, up to 8 p. m . tay the princi pal levees were etui in food shape, but the btrain against them is increasing every hour. Continuous accompanied by heavy winds prevailed, und some disaster seemed doe ifcn probable before morning. It had been raining very bard since 2 o'clock, and it was still coming down in torrents with no indi cations of any change soon. All railroads in tbe vicinity of Fort Smith are suffering from serious wash out! or lost bridges, and trains are abaadoned temporarily. At Arkansas City, on the Mississippi, water from the fcappmgton nook crevasse has in undated tbe rear part of the town, and lands in the back country are being flo ded. It is not thought, ho 'ever. that any great damage will result from the break, as bayous and interior streams aie capable of carrying the water away rapidly. All tbe available boats of the government fleet have been put into levee service. A report prevailed that the levee at Alsatia, Li , twenty miles Bouth of Lake Providence, had broken, but this has not been verified. Balville, Ark., March 12. White river rose eighteen feet here yesterday, and is now rising a foot an hour. St. Louis, March 12. Flood news from various points along the Missis sippi river and other streams this morn ing is that the White and Black rivers in Arkansas are on the rampage. Both are out of their banks and overflowing the country on each side for miles. Heavy rams have fallen and continue to fall along these streams, and a gene ral inundation is looked for. The Black is a tributary of the White, and the White empties into the Arkansas just above tbe point where the latter pours its flood into the Mississippi. At Fort Smith, on tbe Arkansas, a rise of over eighteen feet took place in twenty-four hours, and at last accounts the swell was proceeding at a rapid rate. This great rise, added to the minor floods pouring out of all the small tributaries, will greatly add to tbe volume of water in tbe Mississippi below the mouth of the Arkansas, and increase tbe peril of the lower country.

Fayetteville Scottish Chief : Who in vented the first telephone t If this question is asked in any audience in oar land, the answer will be.

This matter was fully ventilated some years ago in the Fayetteville Gazette. The original models are yet in the possession of Dr. Davis' daughter.

Goldsboro Argus: There was exult ant, thrilling happiness among the con gregation of St. Paul's M. E church in this city at the Sunday morning servic. There has been a debt of $1,900 har ing over the church ever since its coiu- ptetion, and on Sunday the pastor, Rev. B. R. Hall, after preaching a most elo quent, earnest and stirring sermon, made an appeal to the members of h i charge to pay off this debt and free the bouse of God from the encumbranoes cf the world. Although there was not a full attendance of the oongregation yet the canvass that followed resulted in raising nearly 82,300 more than was necessary.

Of course it is impossible that suoh an arrangement could be made, as there is no such law in existence n this State.

Oshkosh, Wis., March 10 Fritz Ja bush walked into the house of his rsla ivee in this city yesterday afternoon, after an absence of nearly thirty years. The story he told was a most romantio one, for he had long been mourned as dead. In 1862 Mr. Jabusch enlisted to the army and went to the front. His relatives heard from him regularly until in the summer of 1863, when his letters ceased after a battle in which bis regiment had been engaged. His parents, of course, supposed him dead. He now states that be was left for dead on the battlefield, was found by rebel troops, placed in a hospital, and when be recovered was imprisoned at Libby prison. Here he remained over a year until exchanged, and be found himself on the Atlantic coast without money and hundreds of miles from home. He shipped on board a mer chantman for the East Indies as a corn- man seaman, and has followed tbe sea ever since. He has acquired a com petency, and decided to settle down in his old home.

Death of Ex-Congressman Taulbec. ; Those wlo have kept up with the Washington news have seen accounts of the shooting of W. P. Taulbee. a representative from the tenth Kentucky district in the 49 and 50th Congress, by j Charles E Kincaid, the Washington ! correspondent of the Louisville Timos, 1 in the House wing of the Capitol, on tbe afternoon of February 23. Since the shooting Taulbee has been in a critical condition, and on Tuesday i mording died. A brief recital of the ! causes which led to the tragedy is as j follows: About two years ago, while Taulbee was a member of Congress, Kincaid telegraphed to bis paper re-1 ports which were damaging to the ! character of Taulbee' The reports, I however, appeared in Washington i papers before tby were sent to tne Louisville Times. Since the reports appeared in the Times, there has been serious antagonism between Taulbee and Kincaid. Kincaid bad avoided Taulbee, hut casually they met on the day of the shooting. The stories of the shooting differ in one important particular. Kincaid and Taulbee had had an encounter some time prior to tbe shooting in the corridor adjoining tbe ball of tbe House of Representatives on the east. It was said juet after the shooting took place that Kincaid bad armed himself after bis first encounter with Taulbee, and seeing him go down the stairs that led to the basement, bad tun aiter him. called to him, and. as he turned, shot him in the face. Kincaid claims that he armed himself in fear oi danger from a further- encounter with Taulbee; that Taulbee bad warned him to arm himself, and that Taulbee in sulted and attacked him on tbeir sec ond encounter, rendering in his opin ion resort to the pistol a necessitv. The theory of self-defence will be set up bv Kincaid s lawyer. As soon as the news of Taulbee 'a death reached police head quarters, an officer was sent to Kin caid's room. He was awakened, and after be had dressed, was taken to the police station, where he now is. A Woman in White Walks for a Mile in Her Sleep. New York.' March 10. Policeman John Stuart, of the Thirteenth street squad, saw an apparition this morning. An hour before daybreak he saw stand ing at tbe ladies' entrance to the Fifth Avenue Hotel tbe ta-il figure of a woman attired in a white night-gown, with ruffles, and a wrapper thrown loosely over it. Tbe woman had on hat and shoes, and carried in one hand a riding trip, just as the omoer swung bis club. The policeman spoke: "What are you doiog bere r1 and touched her shoulder. At the voice and touch the woman gave a sudden start and woke np. Then with a shriek she dropped at the polioeman's feet.
