The Cholera In Russia.
Death of Ceteirajo.
St. Petersburg, July 25. One
or two isolated cases of cholera
have been reported in Russia dur
ing the last.few days. A Xarkoff
paper reports several cases of what
is called colerine. Great efforts
are being made to purify St.
Petersburg. The clergy held a
special service of intercession to
day for the preservation of Russia
from disease. A state of siege
will be imposed on the city of
Nijni Novgorod during the com
ing great fair.
Tke Southern Exposition.
New York, July 2U. Presi
dent Arthur arrived in this city
yesterday en route to Louisville
and will open the great southern
exposition on August 1st. He
will be attended or met by the
secretary of the treasury, secre
tary of war, post-master general
and General Sheridan. The occa
sion is one which warrants this
recognition of its importance by
these officials. The exposition is
intended to afford a practical oppor
tunity to visitors from all parts of
the Union to examine the resourc
es of the present development and
the capabilities of the southern
states. It has been carefully
planned and in a manner which
reflects credit on the gentlemen
who had it in charge. The grounds
are large and the buildings not
only extensive, but convenient!'
arranged, aud the scheme of ex
hibits appear to be very well
adapted to accomplish its purpose.
Tbc MIhIhs Exposition.
Denver, July 25. The mining
industrial exposition is attracting
thousands of persons. The great
est crowd ever in the gounds was
present to day. All departments
are rapidly filling up. Every
feature of the exhibition is a de
cided improvement over that of
Deatkof Cetewayo, the ZuIaKiBS.
Durban, July 25. The late re
port of the death of Cetewayo is
confirmed. Cetewayo, the Zulu
king, has cut so large a figure in
the annals of the last six years
that his death is noteworthy. J3e
never showed to much advantage
as in captivity, but the confine
ment broke his spirit and ruined
his influence over his people, so
that his death is probably a relief
to those who arc engaged in mak
ing a compromise with the native
tribes of south Africa. It was
while engaged in subduing some
of the rebellious Zulu tribes that
Cetewayo contracted the illness
which ended in his death. Cete
wayo left a son and heir,an intelli
gent lad of 1G, who will probably
be invested -with the honors of the
throne of Zululand.
Tbc Hub Dance,
Chicago, July 25. A dispatch
from Rosebud Indian Agency, D.
T., says: The annual sun dance
of the Sioux Indians occurred yes
terday afternoon at the camp near
the agency. About 1,000 Indians
were present from all parts of the
reservation and a number of white
visitors. The ceremony of cut
ting a pole for the center of the
dancing circle was performed Sat
urday afternoon, Merpipe, nieee of
Standing Bear wielding the ax.
The charge on the prostrate tree
was made by over 1,000 3'oung
bucks on ponies. Sunday, a brush
inclosure was built and that even
ing fifteen Indians entered and
commenced their long dance, hav
ing been fasting four days. In
the afternoon the voluntary tor
ture commenced, three men offer
ing themselves. The medicine
man performed the operation. lie
made two vertical incisions in each
breast with a sharp knife, and
passings stick under, lifted the
flesh and fastened it to the end of
& rope depending from a pole.
The dancers then worked until
they, freed themselves by violently
breaking the flesh. Follow-a-"Woman
broke loose in five min
utes and Lives-in-the-Air after ten
minutes' exertion, but Poor-Dog
remained tied up for half an hour
before he could tear out the thongs
from both breasts. They then all
rejoined the dance. Several of
the bucks had small pieces of flesh
cut from their arms, their squaws
offering their arms for part of the
loss. The whole was a dreadful
exhibition of physical endurance
and savage barbarity. At u o'clock
the dance closed, the participants
having jumped up and down,
blowing their whistles, for fifty
hours without food or water, part
of the time in the burning sun.
Some jvere completely exhausted
at the close of the dance, their
e3es being closed and their bodies
in spasms. This probably is the
last time these cruelties will be
permitted, as a strong effort is be
ing made by the government to
stop the sun dance. Orders came
to Agents McGillicuddy and
"Wright this year to prevent its
occurrence, but it was impossible
to do so.
Lexington, (Ky.,) July 25.
The reunion of Morgan's men con
tinued to-da In the afternoon
1,500 men marched by the grave
of their leader, John II. Morgan,
uncovering their heads as they
passed. The grave was decorated
with flowers. The graves of other
Confederate dead soldiers were
visited 'and strewn with flowers.
An address by Major Stanle', the
orator of the day, was delivered at
the grave; subject, "The Life of
John H. Morgan."
Washington, July 25. The
steamship Indiana, with yellow
fever on board, has arrived at
Newport News and has been or
dered below the quarantine sta
tion. All foreign vessels entering
the cape are to be stopped if any
sickness is on board.
Baton Rouge, July 25. Gov
ernor McEnery to-day issued a
proclamation directing all vessels
now at the quarantine station in
the Mississippi river, infected with
yellow fever, to be removed im
mediately to the quarantine sta
tion at Ship Island. AH vessels
from South America and Cuba are
prohibited from entering the Miss
The Cholera In Ksj
Cairo, July 25. The scene here
last night was a melancholy one.
It is impossible to walk 100 yards
without meeting a coffin or ambu
lance. The evictions of the inhab
itants at Balak and the burning of
their dwellings continues. The
evicted people are sent in Bar
rage, where a repetition of the
Tantah horrors is probable.
Baker Pasha forcibly compelled
a recalcitrant doctor to go to
The Khedive visited all the
cholera hospitals to-day. In the
last twenty-four hours there have
been 3G7 deaths from cholera here
and seven at Chibier.
The Canadian I'uciUr.
New York, July 25. The Ca
nadian Pacific railway is running
talegraph wires to Port Moody, B.
C, and intends to extend the sys
tem by cables to Japan. The
rapidity of the construction of the
main line of the Canadian Pacific
railroad in the first week m July
is without parallel in this or any
other country. On Saturday, July
7th, rails were laid upon six miles
of the road, and in one week not
less than 25 G8-100 miles, exclu
sive of sidings, were completed,
an average of about four and one
third miles per da, the highest
St. Louis, July 25. A special
to the lJos'-J)ispatch from St. Joe,
says a frightful accident occurred
last night on the Wabash Railway,
near Lawson. A freight train
with one passenger car attached
ran off the rails. Seven passen
gers were in the coach, and one, a
patent-right man from Lathrop,
was killed. Miss Woods of Rich
mond had an arm broken in two
places and a shoulder-blade brok
en. Another lady, who lives in
Lawson and was in a delicate con
dition, was seriously injured.
Neither of these can recover. Of
the other four passengers, one, a
Kansas City drummer, was seri
Kllit 1'crson Drowned.

Wilicksbauki: (Pa.), July 25. '
A desperate prize fight for 500
was fought near Nanticoke last
evening. The principals were
Paddy O'Brien, a saloon-keeper,
and Mike Brezec. The men had
fought eleven rounds according to
the rules of the Marquis of Queens
berry, when a crowd of women
broke into the ring, and, brandish
ing knives and pistols, put a stop
to the fight.
Havana, July 24. The report
has been circulated that the Cap
tain of the steamer STiayara fired
and beached his ship to get rid of
a contraband cargo. The report
is that the captain was carrying
war materials to the Haytien reb
els and ran his boat ashore, that
he might transfer that part of his
cargo to another vessel. j
Vtehh's L:ut Sw!:n. I
Bui'FAiA), July 24. Captain j
Webb, the noted English swim
mer, perished in an attempt to J
swim across the whirlpool rapids
in the Niagara river, this afternoon.
He was rowed it: a skiff to a point
in the river opposite the old Maid
of the Mist landing by John Mc
Clay, ferryman at the falls, and
leaped from the boat at 4:02
o'clock. The daring swimmer
passed the big rapids all right,
keeping in the middle of the
stream. When he struck the
whirlpool he was rushed to the
American side, where the waves,
it is estimated, are from thirty to
fort' feet high. The last seen of
him he was throwing up one arm.
His intention had been to pass the
whirlpool on the Canadian side.
His shoot of the rapids was ex
tremely thrilling. The refusal of
the railroad hotels to have any
thing to do with what they termed
"his going to his death" rendered
the affair, financialby, a failure.
The river has been searched for
two miles below the whirlpool,
but no trace of Webb has been
found. It is generally believed
that he was engulfed in the whirl
pool. Webb leaves a wife and
two children in England. Webb
was followed by people in carriag
es, but they could not get ahead
of him. Fred Kyle, manager for
Captain Webb, has arrived from
the falls and gives up all hope of
