seen floating down the river on a raft,
without rudder or oars. How he got
to the place where he was found is yet
a mystery. Perhaps the discovery1 of
his raft will show that he floated there
direct from the Wallamet. He was

The Chicago Times on Sunday has
a dispatch from Bismark stating that
a wagon train of twenty-seven teams
just arrived from Deadwood mines in
the Black Hills reports immense rich
ness. The steamer Yellowstone also
arrived on the tenth, confirming
ports. We give the report as
ceived, remarking that amongst
many grains of gold there should
some grains for allowance. The wag
on train brought $15,000 in dust; the
steamer $21,000 $36,000 in all. Four
men took out in one day fifteen
pounds of gold $3, GOO. Another
claim yielded from $1,800 to $2,800
per day, two gangs of ten men each,
being employed, mining day and night.
They ought at that rate to show more
than 3u,uuu, witnnourat 28 per
sack, and other supplies in propor
tion for 7,000 miners.
The western-bound freight rates
from Boston were dropped several
notches on Monday, in consequence of
the railway war. A reduction from
seventy cents to twenty-five cents
per hundred pounds, was made by the
Erie road on the 12th, to Chicago.
Fares from New York to San Francis
co were placed at $100. At these
rates it will be impossible that com
panies will be paid for the handling
of goods. It is probable that all the
lines "will follow suit.
At a meeting of tbe Directors of
the Pacific Mail Steamship Company,
held in Xew York on Saturday the
Panama Railroad and Transit Com
panies agree to admit the Pacific
Mail in its connections with the
Panama railroad on the same terms
made by contract with the Panama
Transit company, without any charge
for commissions. The mail directors
advanced S17,500 each, thus provid
ing a fund to meet the old liabilities
and place the company on its pins
pain in the head and dizziness. On en
tering the vestibule, he was so over
come with sudden illness that he
came near falling, but this was pre
vented, and he was assisted to a seatr
on the steps when he exclaimed: "Oh,
this pain!" A conveyance having
been procured, Mrs. Blaine returned
with him home; he then being uncon
scious. A bed was brought into the
front parlor on which he was laid, and
a surgeon having been sent for Surgeon-General
Barnes, and Drs. Bliss,
Cox, Yerde, and Pope, they soon
appeared and lost no time in cuppipg
the sprne and resorting to other
counter irritants- and remedies.
From eleven in- the morning until 4
o'clock in the- afternoon, he laid un
conscious, breathing irregularly. His
wife, physicians and other friends re
maining at his bedside- During that
time the physicians said Blaine was
suffering from over excitement of the
brain and nervousness superinduced
by the- recent events in which he
has been a prominent actor, the
symptoms being aggravated by tho
weather, which to-day was very op
pressive. Several weeks ago Blaine
was confined to the house for some
days by a low type of malarial fever,
but appeared before the sub judiciary
committee, who were investigating
the charges against him, before he
had fully recovered from the effects
of that disease. This, with 'the ex
citement on his part, both before the
committee and in the house, and the
large number of persons daily in con
ference with him, and his attention
to his extensive correspondence, in
cluding very many telegrams from
all parts of the country, especially
during the past week, loss of rest and
other causes, produced the strain
upon his mind that caused his sudden
illness. He is slowly recovering.
