The River's Rampage.
Si. Lub, June '20. .slvkes from
L'l.tter, Illinois, say St. Mary's levee,
opi ' site that point in Missouri, broke
.Sumhiy niht and the St. Mary's bot
tniii, a large wheat raiiu region, is
marly all Hooded. .Some twenty thous
and acres of wheat ar; under water on
this bottom alone. From Chester to
Jrand Tower southward on the Illin
ois .".idc, for a distance of twenty-five
iiiih-s, embrucing au average width of
tea niik-x, nearly all is submerged, and
rrops are destroyed, entailing greut loss
To the norlh of Chester nearly all the
bottoms are said to be inundated, ex
cept here and there a high ridjje which
is out of water. Information from
these regions are of general, rather than
01 a specific character, but it is safe to
say that if all these bottoms are deluged
as stated, thousands of families are
either living in flooded houses or have
fled to the bluffs for safety, and that
the loae -f crops and jfcncral personal
pnpiitvis incalculable. 1 he Ameri
can Lt!' in extends all along from
.-. imtthing over 200 miles. All
tiii.- cut tract is subject to overflow in
freshets like the present, and it can
readily be imagined that the lo.s to
property, distress and misery brought
r.r!;n its inhabitants must be immense.
The towns on the Missouri ide of the
river are partly submerged, as is Kas-
kaskia ou the Iilmois side, which is to
be abandoned. The people liviug here
haue sent'to Chester for a steamboat to
carry them awav. The levee three
milos above Capo Girardeau, the Mon
roe fifty rnilc3 above Cairo. ;iud another
at IVio 's lauding, twenty-five miles
farther down the river, broic Sunday
night, and let a large volatile of water
rush over the bottoms. Other points
on both sides of the river below here,
particularly ou the Illinois side, arc in
the sani" condition.
St. Ltuis, .June 6. 'J hero is reason
lo believe that the river is falling, ;u:d
that a gradual subsidence of the flood
will now take place. From I5r-." klvn
and Venice north to Newport, Nainioka
and Mitchell, there is to be seen only a
broad expanse of water. Three-fourths
of Brooklyn is nearly flooded away.
Venice is under water. At East ck.
Louis all the low lands are floated to a
depth of from ten to twenty feet, and
100 h!i:cs hiJVe ti.clr lown floors
flooded, and man d them tlu-ii -.-eeond

including East (.'a'ri'iidolet, is submerir-

AT KANSAS CITY.
i K:.:;s:.s City, June 26. Th :iver has j
n.vii wu' men siree nuiiiiiglit. . i:
inches more will l irt the river over
the east bottoms and the peopld in the
suburbs are watchful.
The river rose three inches during
the forenoon. In the afternoon it re
mained nearly stationery. Old river
men generally agree that the June fresh
et has not yet appeared, but anticipate
its cmi:;g within a week.
Bedford, Pa., Juue 23. A heavy
storm inundated a large portion of the
town and caused much damage to crops
iu this section.
Atchison, Kas., June 26. The river
is on a stand. The rise today is hardly j
perceptible. The Platte and Nemaha
are falling. Of the eastern roads the
Hock Island & Hannibal are running
regularly today. The C. B. Q. is run
ning by way ol Valisea. Of the south
eastern roads the Miscouri i'aciflc is
broken south of Leavenworth, but is
ru.ining trains from here via Lawrence, !
tin. nee t. Kansas City. Tite Omaha ex- J
tension o!" the Missouri PaciSc is run-
ning only to Ilia.-itha. It is badly
washed north of iliat point. The Atch
ison A: Nebraska road has not sent out
regular-trains for ten days, and suffer- j
ed such damage that trains are not j
likely to run for a week or two. The j
St. Jo & Western is almost entirely j
destroyed for a distance of sixty or j
seventy miles. Hardly a single bridge '.
or embankment is left. It 13 doubtful
if it is in running order for two week ;
It is estimated that the damage to :.li
roads centering in this city will reach
half a million. The river is within six
feet of the high water of 1831. A fur
ther rise of two feet would destroy the
splendid harvest in the Missouri bot
tom lands. The river fell one inch to
day, and there is a general rejoicing
over the outlook for a rap'd d- eline be
fore the June rise comes. No further
danger ia feared.

Washington, June 23. Major Nick

THE KKSIiKVE KUNI.
The treasury reserve.which has Keen
s'eadily increasing for several days,
amounts to $112,4 31 ,'j:J0. It is stated
that the payments that will be made
the present month on account of pen
sioas will exceed $11,123,000. The
quarterly interest of the live per cent
loans due July 1, is sj;500,000.
It is ascertained today that the ef
fects of yesterday's executive order in
regard the internal revenue service is
to reduce the total number of collec
tion districts from 120 to 80, a reduc
tion of forty-six, iustead of fourty
foar, as announced by the treasury de
partment yesterday. All the changes
made in the present system were in
cluded, however, in the synopsis tele
graphed last night. The following
statement shows the number of dis
tricts reduced in each state and terri
tory: Alabama 1, Nevada 1, Connecti
cut 1, Georgia, 1, Dakota 1, Wyoming
1, Arizona 1. Pennsylvania 4, Virginia
2, North Carolina J, Tennessee 1, Ken
tucky 2, Ohio 4, Indiana 3, Illinois 2,
Michigan 2, Wisconsin 2, Iowa 2, Mis
souri 2, Minnesota 1, West Virginia 2,
Maryland 1, Massachusetts 1, New
York 5, Washington territory 1, New
Jersey 1, Idaho 1, Montana 1. Total,
forty-six. It is stated at the internal
revenue bureau that it is probable that
the transfer of the offices cannot be ef
fected before the first of August. An
annual saving of 200,000 will result
from the reduction.
TILE PAUPER IMMIGRATION.
The regular cabinet meeting tcday
was attended by all members except
Secretaries Frelinghuysen and Teller
both of whom are out of the city
The principal question considered
was in rcHftion to the alleged ship
ments of pauper immigrants to this
countiy from Ireland by the British
authorities. The result of the delib
crations on the subject was shown in
the subsequent action of the secre
tary otthe treasury, who telegraphed
instructions to toe collector of cus
toms at Now York to co-operate with
the commissioner of immigration at
that point to prevent the landing of
all immigrants found to be paupers
within the meaning of the law. In
that event such pauper immigrants
may have .already landed, as is re
portetMV.bo the case with a large
nuinbcifVfoiiippod 0:1 the steamship
Furnessia, the collector is inrtructed
to take all practicable measures to
have Ihera reshipped to the port from
whence they ean.e.

Northern Pacific gravel train, with
about one hundred Chinamen on board,
rau into a wood train at Heron Sidinc,

Tucson, June 26. Agent Wilcox ar
rived this morning enroute to San Car
los. He expresses himself in strong
terms against the return of the Chiri
cahuas to the San Carlos reservation.
