Kennoo, who has served for four j oars on General Crook's staff, U now on temporary duty in thia city and very much shocked to learn of the gen eral's death, 'lie was ::ne of the great est general that tola country ever had," he said, a "wonderf ul strategist, a re markable soldier himself, thoroughly well versed in all iha principles of the art of war. In Indian warfare he was undoubtedly pre-eminent. Thia was due in a measure 10 his wondrous knowledge of the Indian character. During the early part of hia army life which has all been spent In tha weal, with the eiwption of the war time, he learned tc become a thorough huntsman and woodman. In maiy respects he hud the traits of an Indian keen, quick, NUong and with good judgment when in a wilderness. II knew the Indians us I know my alphabet, and he treated Item on all occasions with that honesty that formed a remarkable factor in his character. Whatever he said he metit, and ha never went back on his word. A promise was sacred with hiin just as much to an Indian as to any one else. These men learned to trust him and to love him, although lie was a terrible enemy to them. During his last visit to me at Vernon barracks, in Ala bama," said Lieutenant Kennon,"the old Apaches whom he captured in Arizona greeted hiui and even embraced him. One of them once told him out in the nest that his people looked upon hioi as they did upon God, as being tlte soul of honor and of truth, I hey had the ulmoat belief in even thing he did. His honesty was peculiar in its intensity. He would not even say w a man, "I am glad to see you," ifhe did not really feel glad. In matters of thought he wan slow, cautious and logical in method and he weighed argument carefully before corn ing to a decision, with an unerricg judgement lie had a kind, considerate, loveable character, simple and approach able, simple in bis manners and his tastes and retiring and quiet in las act ions. He was a constant reader of all sorts of literature, especially upon mili tary topics. have been in receipt of a good many letters from the general sine he left me here in January last, in which he has complained of a slight ill ness. It started with the grip, from which he. soon recovered, but occasion ally ' there would be reference to his being 'under the weather.' (hi the 10th of this mont h he wrote that he was very much better. During his celebrated Apache campaign he received an injury in hie cvert f rem over exertion which seemed to have an effect on his lungs, ad he had a slight cough which worried hiu, but when he went to a specialist he was assured that he was in no danger Mcir. Xew York, March 2". Thegrand jury today handed down a long presentment to J udge Fitzgerald, in which the sher iff's office is characterized a a disgrace to the city and a shame to civilization. The presentment in referring to sher iffs' sales, says: "During the three years eaded January 1, 1880, one linn of auctioneers conducted sberffs' sale from which were realized the sum of 11,387,508. Of this sum M.1,9CJ7 was di v ided between the sheriff and auctioneer. In the year 1889 the sheriffVproiits were over $Mfl0O. How much more he received for extra compensation cannot be learned because of the looseness of hia accounts. Under the system in vogue the deputy sheriff, to realize sub stantial pecuniary advantage, is almost compelled to commit criminal acta, certainly to lay aside all ideas of honeet ty and integrity." The foreman of the grand jury said the inquiry had failed to reveal a single redeeming element in the management of the sheriff's office. It was a black record of violated law, tardy justice, forced settlements, corruption and brib ery. It was no longer a question of what ought to be done to remedy the existing evils, but what must be done at once and without delay. The foreman asked that copies of . the presentment be sent to the governor and the state legists ture. Koih Highly Baile. New York, March 27.

Xw Voaic, March 2..-AtL2uiu vestr dar mornimr the iurv in the Flack case came into the court and announced that they had found all three of the defend ants Sheriff Flack, his son William and Joseqh Meeks guilty. The arguments closed in the case Saturday evening and Judge Barret delivered a lengthy charge. It was divid ed on two deiinations he gave of a con spiracy in law: 1. ' To do an unlawful act oy unlaw ful nieaus. 1 To do a laatul act b unlawful means. Therein no douU the judg ment record is that of fraudulent defense. Under the first divisoo the jury must decide w aether the suit was falsely insti tuted and if Mrs. Flack had - given her con Meet. Under the second division, assuming that Mrs. Flack had agreed to the proceedings and had a right to divorce, it would be necessary to con sider the unlawful means employed to procue it. The judge also touched on all the important points in the ei ideuce. He charged the jury an to reasonable doubt and left the ae with them. A sensation was created at midnight by the reKrt that a reporter had been found in the room with the jury. He wasDilworth Otioate of the World, and ttdiuittrtl that he had eomealed hininelf behind the curtains in the room. The defense deiuaudt-d that he be punished. Judge Barrett said the law did not pro vide punishment. Choate was compell ed to give up his notes and Judge Barret, after expressing his alioniinution of the act, asxed C'hoat to say that he would not publish what he had herd. Ohoate declined to make the promise. The jury slrouglv recmumeuded olem ency. The Judge said as it w as Sunday all he could do as to except the verdict, the defendants would remain under bail of .haJ each. The penalty for the offeni-es of which the prisoners were convicted is one year's imprisonment, or a tine of 8.'d(t or bonth. It is under stood the defense will move to set aside the verdict on the ground that the pres ence of a reortr in the jury room vitiated the proceedings for jounsel. The Judge said he needed no counsel He was allowed to go and the jury was sent back to delilerate. t'ugilivr riminHl-.. Washington, March SB. The conven tion supplementary to the tenth article of the treaty of 1812 between (ireat Britain and the United States, concluded at Washington July 12, 1s80, and ratifi cations exchanged at London March 1J, 1800, was proclaimed today.

Advices from various points along the Missis sippi show that there has been no in crease in any of the levee breaks, but at the same time not much headway has been made towards closing them. Water is still pouring through the Offuts and Raleigh breaks in Mississippi and northern Louisiana, and all the land in that vicinity is badly flooded. Moat of the people have been able to move out of the larger part of their belojgings to places of safety. At Arkansas City the river is rising again tonight and the water is pouring down on the town rapidly from the Sap ngton breaks. Iwraalair rirM. MiNSEAroi.i, Mimx., March 27.

The agitation started in the agricultural academy near Mos cew. In spite of the strict precaution of th government the agitation has spread to ot)er institutions and the students have been holding meetings at all the universities. There is a general upheaval in the university world.

The levees are continually breaking and the floods are practically beyond control. Work on lhecrevass at Arkansas City has been suspended, which means devastation for that sec tion. At Shipwita, sixty miles below Greenville, n big levee broke yesterday morning, overflowing the little town and sweeping away several houses. The break was instantaneous. A leading citizen, standing in four feet of water and holding his child on his shoulders, telephoned an appeal for a skiff and boats to rescue drowning people. He had seen some of hia neighbors drown close to bim, and reported that many more would suffer the same fa'e. He claims the people living in the country cannot escape. Repeated warnings have had no effect on them, as they feel secure beyond their big levees. The break is bad and the levee is melting like a snow bank. Rescuing parties in boats have jeen organized nt various points. Livestock will be drowned by thousands, as no provision has been made for removing them, and the gov ernment boats patrolling the banks can do no more than the rescuing of human lives.

A Persevering Prisoner. "Perseverance will accomplish any thing." I had these words for a writ ing lesson once, and I shall never for get them. It is a great thing lo have perseverance. There was once a uian who was shut up in a dungeon wiih walls 'AKJ feet thick, made of the hard est kind of stone. He hail no tools ex cept a pair of scissors his brother had sent him io a loaf of bread, but he re membered that a drop of water will wear away a stone if it fulls on the stone long enough, and that a coral worm, which is so small that you can hardly see it, will eat up and destroy a coral reef if you will only give it time enough. So he said that he would per severe and dig a hole through the wall of the dungeon with the scissors and escape if it took him a hundred years. He had been digging about a year when the Governor pardoned him, and the jailer brought him the joyful news. But tbey couldn't get him to leave tho dungeon. He tola the jailer that he had undertaken lo dig bis way through tho wall and escae in that war, uud that ho was going to stick to it no mat ter how long it might take. The jailer urged him to give it up and walk out of he door, and even offered him 10 to give up his dungeon to a new lodger, but notluug could induce him toenail" his mind, bo he staid in the dungeon aud dug away at tho wall for forty, seven years, and every six months ho bad to par a big bill for damages to the jail.aud he finally died when lie was ball through the wall.
