THE' (JKEAT LAKES.
A Complete l.it of the DuxuitrtK Iuriu the
Pant Year, together with the I.owt of I.ile,
and Other InforniHlion.
From the columns of the Milwaukee
Evening Wisconsin, which payer fur
nishes annually a resume of the disas
ters occurring on the great inland lakes,
wc condense the following valuable in
formation: The record shows 1,251 disasters of
all kinds, major and minor, against
1,318 last year. The estimated damage
to property foots up $3,031, 700, against
3,976,000 in 1873, a falling off of
8944,300. This, in view of the fact that
the tonnage afloat in 1874 was greater
than in 1873, might appear surprising
were it not for the fact that the past
season was one of the dullest ever ex
perienced in the history of lake naviga
tion. and that in consequence a large
amount of tonnage was laid up during
t!e two most disastrous months, Octo
ber and N'ovemlier. Last year the losses
in October footed up nearly twice the
amount of any other mouth of the sea
sou, .tdz: $1,407,000. This year Novem
ber snakes the largest showing, viz:
S9t8,0tX), and had it not been
tliat-so many vessels were in winter
ter quarters there is no telling what
point the figures would have reach e J.
-In the estimation the marine editor of
tha, " Wisconsin, no more boisteroBS
month has been experienced since the
memorable November of 1869, when
the shores of Lakes Huron and Michi
gan were fairly lined with vessels and
valuable cargoes, and insurance com
panies staggered to the verge of ruin
Tinder the burden of their losses.
An enumeration of the loss of life dur
ing the year shows the number to have
have been 243; against 221 in 1873, and
219 111.1872. In this respect the recoro,
very unfortunately, is against 1874.
The number of vessels of all descrip
tions, steam and sail, that nave gone
out of existence during the vear is bo,
or two less than in 1873. The tonnage
of these vessels foots up 15,915, against
19,914 tons in 1873 a difference of
nearlv 4.000 tons in favor of 1873. As
the number lost in both seasons is near
lv eoual, it will be seen that the vessels
which have srone out of. existence this
year were chiefly of a small and inferior
- class, although several oi the larges
and finest vessels on the lakes are. m
. braced in the liat.

the number of disasters in each month,
together with an estimate of the damage
involved, and a comparison with the
disasters during the same time in 1873

The following is a summarized state-

ascomparcJ with 1873 and 1872. It will
be seen that the number is greater tins
year than in either of the preceding two
years. Ill is is principally une to tne
fearfid squall which passed over the

April, whereby 24 fishermen, six off

Death of Dickens' " Lascar Sal."
From the Ixmdou Echo.
There have been many women for
whom a stanza of a poet has been a
brevet of perpetual fame, and some
times, as in the case of Mrs. Black, of
Athens, a provision of a more substan
tial kind from the pocket of the poet's
admirers, lhe same can hardly be said
of the personages who sat for their pic
tures to our great novelist, Dickens,
who often thought fit to reverse the
principle of "nihil ietigit quod non
ornavit," and "touched nothing" with
out making it more grotesque. Among
the' characters whom he appears to
have drawn truly enough, albeit in
most repulsive colors, was the wretched
creature called " Lascar Sal," described
in "Edwin Drood" as the female pur
veyor of opium, and herself a smoker of
the drug. This miserable Woman, it
appears, died recently of scarlet fever,
in a frightful condition of neglect and
destitution, in a court in Uluegate
Fields, in St. George's-iu the-East.
Naturally the vice to which she had ad
dicted herself, and the effects of which,
the L-ancet remarks, are frequently
seen in all their hideousness by medical
practitioners in the East End, left her
in a state of low vitality unfit to con
tend with the disease to which she im
mediately ' succumbed. In her filthy
and miserable room we are informed
that white mice were found running
about to the number of "several hun
dred." Making allowance for exagger
ation, and supposing the poor woman
to have fed some dozens of the little an
imals in her extreme poverty, we have
a curious and not unaffecting picture of
a human being ruined by a soul-and-body-destroying
propensity, yet retain
ing so much of gentleness in her isola
tion and degradation as to care for these
minute friends possibly the only crea
tures in the world who did not shrink
from ' Lascar SaL"

jumped to hie feet and was again
thrown down, but he, there be
ing no more shocks, immediately after
gained the street, where was an immense
crowd of people. Fearing another
shock, no one, however, entered their
houses until morning, when the majority
of the buildings were found to be safe,
though some dwelling houses were much
shaken. In Guanajuato, Puebla, Tux
pan, Oaxaca, Tehuacan, San Andres,
Tuxtla, Cosamuloapan, Cuernavaoca
and Michoacan the shock was also
severely felt, showing that it extended
along the seacoast and not any distance
into Uieiuterior,. though a slight shock
was felt at the City of Mexico. At
Aberrade the church and the convent
were much shattered, and a portion of
the tower fell, burying, it is supposed,
several priests who were preparing for
matins. In Tuxtla the shock was very
great, prostrating several houses and
killing and wounding a number of peo
ple. In Vera Cruz, however, it appears
the principal damage ' was done to
houses. Mr. Coney, of the Cuba, re
ports that he was asleep in the hacienda,
and was awakened by the first shock;
rushing to the street, he was again
prostrated. The first shock was a wave
and the second oscillating. Immedi
ately after his reaching the street there
was a terrible crash, and the cry was
raised that the old church, now used as
a library, and wjbere the niece of Her
nando Cortez is buried, was falling; but
fortunately only a portion of the tower
gave way. About the same time the
walls of the old cathedral, which are
very solid, cracked open, striking a
panic into the people who had sought
shelter near the sanctuary, lhe. light
house was aho much cracked, and the
keeper was thrown down the steps,
bruising hmi severely. About a third
of the buildings in Vera Cruz were in the
same way cracked or broken, aud there
was also considerable damage in the

African and Scottish Cruelty.
From the Pall Mall Gazette.
Among the unpleasant facts observed
by Sir Samuel Baker in his wanderings
on the shores of the White Nile was one
similar to that recorded by the African
traveler Bruce, who declared to an un-
benevmg public that the Abvssimans
cut beefsteaks from living cattle. He
found that it is the practice in a certain
district to renWve the humps of, the
native buffaloes while the animals are
alive, and that, the meat thus obtained
being much yalued, this horrible opera
tion is repeated several times during
tne lives ol tne miserable creatures.
This is disgusting enough, and the peo
ple guilty of such methods of increas
nig tne meat supply are, no uoubt.
steeped in cruelty and bloodshed; but a
traveler from Lnvoro might, had he
been in Glasgow the other day, have
turned the tables on white critics, and
pointed to as ugly a sight in Christian
and civilized England. Here a charge
was lately proved against an engineer
of having cruelly tortured a dog by put
ting it into a pot over the fire, filled or
partly filled with boiling water, and al
lowing the animal to remain there howl
ing -and barking until the hair, skin,
and nesn were about to separate from
its bones, when it died. It was also
stated by witnesses that they found the
defendant standing looking on at the
poor brute struggling in the pot, and
asking it to give an account of itself
now. "We could wish in the case of its
trial that the venue had been changed to
Africa, where, if the law had taken cog
nizance of the offense at all, its majesty
would have been vindicated with a hip

A Homesick Indian.
The Oxford (Penn.) Press says: "One
of the Indians who recently came to
Lincoln University to receive an educa
tion, left about two weeks ago for his
home in Utah valley, having become

the homage which should be paid to so
distinguished a personage. Xliis was
shown by him more particularly toward
Bichard Komas and the other Indian at
the university. A few days before he
left he became so indi ?nant that he
dressed himself in all his Indian tog
gery; put on war paint, and with knife
and revolver in his belt appeared in the
presence of the faculty of the univer
sity, declaring his intention of setting
oft on foot lor his home in the West.

Important to Railroad en.
Professor Barker, of Yale College
formerly, and now of Philadelphia, has
j recently made a discovery of great value
to railroad men. iiua metallic paint,
intended for application to "journal
boxes on railroad care. The paint,
when heated to about 100 ' degrees
Fahrenheit, turns irom . its original
color, which is a .deep, clear red, . to
pure black; and immediately on cool
ing it resumes its reddish hue.' The
journal boxes being covered with the
metallic paint, train hands may detect
at a glance whether a journal has heat
ed or is heating. Their knowledge at
present is only gained when the wood
work has ignited and the damage has
already been done.
