V' ' PHILADELPHIA , March 20. A remarkable
markablo reception was given las
, night to the president by George W.
Childs. Nearly five hundred persons
prominent'in the history of the coun
try , surged in the corridors and par
lor between 8 and 11 o'clock. Genera !
Grant was under especial charge o :
the host. The sonata waa represented
by Messrs. Cameron ( Pa. ) , MoPher-
son , Bayard , Pondloton , Davis , Camden
don , Hoar , Fryo , Allison , Jackson ;
V'T the houao was represented by Speaker
Kicfor and Messrs. Kelley , O'Neill ,
Randall , Walker , Belmont , Fisher ,
Rosecrans and Flower. Adjutant-
General Drum and Major-General
Howard , of West Point , for the army ;
Rear-Admirals Ammon , Mullany ,
Glisson and Problo ; Senor Romero
and John Russell Young for the di
plomatic service ; Messrs. Lilly and
Wade Hampton for the ox-confeder
acy ; Messrs. Hurlbut , Ford , Purdy ,
* T Norville and Cannant , for the Now
> * York press ; Fulton for the Baltimore
press ; Judges Noah Davis and Brady
for the Now York bench ; Chauncy
Dopow , F. W. Banks , J. T. Caldwell
r and Courtland Parker for. the New
York bar. Politics was represented
by Governor Cornell of Now York ,
ex-Governor Hoffman and
Wykham of New York ; the bankers
by Mr. Belmont of Now York , and
Mr. Caulston represented Baltimore.
The entire Pennsylvania supreme
bench was present with the governor
and of the state and
ex-governor , ox-
mayora of Philadelphia ; alao a number
of the representatives of the iron in
terests of the country.
The reception and dinner was os
tensibly under the auspices of the
Saturday Night club , a select organi
zation which dinea at the houses of
members once a month. It waa the
last of the season and Mr. Childs'
jturn to entertain the guesta. . In real ;
ity , ' ' however , the reception had a
\ deeper signification than mere hospi
tality. Mr. Ohilds is a devoted ad
herent of Grant , a warm personal
friend of President Arthur , and has
regarded with anxious misgivings the
feeling of hostility to Gen. Grant
from the commencement of Garfield'a
regime and to Gen. Arthur since the
aasajsination. Ho is understood to have
seriously considered the * best means
by which the current of ill-fooling
1 might bo stemmed and turned in favor
of the administration , and finally hit
on an idea that hia final club banquet
might bo utilized aa a sort of a re
union whore Grant and President
Arthur might mingle and make per
sonal acquaintances and friends with
political contemporaries. Hence the
representative character of the men
invited. The first intention waa to
make the gathering republi
can in order that the
the gathering might bo considered
crats were invited ; also representa
tives of other interests outside of pol
itics. Up to a late hour during the
evening it was expected President
A Arthur would bo present. General
Grant mingled freely with the gueats
and made himself generally agreeable.
The banquet was ono of the most
elaborate over attempted in this city.
The mansion was magnificently dec
orated and it is stated the ontini cost
waa upwarda of 820,000. The invited
guests from Washington and Now
Yoik came on special trains. A dis
patch waa received from Preudont
Arthur early in the evening stating
unexpected important business pre
vented his attendance.
The Now England representatives
were ox-Governor Rico , of Massachu
setts , and II. Howard , of Rhode
Not a single act speech waa deliv-
efod. The guests spent the night at

ST. PAUL , March 25. Yesterday
over five hundred Canadian immi
grants bound for Manitoba reached
this city , having boon delivered over
the Chicago , St. Paul & Omaha and
Chicago , Milwaukee & St. Paul roads
by the Grand Trunk at Milwaukee ,
lor the first time this season the St.
Paul , Minneapolis & Manitoba rail
road was unable to meet the extraor
dinary demand upon them , owing to
the blockade in Manitoba and the
scarcity of rolling stock , and the im
migrants were greatly disappointed
and some enrago-l at the disappoint
ment , they having expected to go di
rectly through. The Manitoba com
pany will get them off as soon aa pos
sible , perhaps to-morrow , but in the
ineautimo tno Canadians , who uro of
limited meana , boar with the least
Eossible grace the two days' detention
ere. They hold a meeting to-day
and adopted resolutions denouncing
the railroad companies , particularly
the Manitoba , for vexatiously defect
ive arrangements. The incensed Can
adians are congregated at the Union
depot , and it looked at one time as if
mob violence waa among the proba
bilities. The Manitoba company ,
however , are doing the beat in their
power. When the regular passenger
train left for Winnipeg it wna board-
ml by sovonty.fivo or eighty of the
immigrants , who were so determined
that the train officials had to resori to
strategy to circumvent them. They
wore all put in two cars and sido-
'racked , while the rest of the train
sped on ita way , * , and sovon\l4 hours
passou before thd. baflled immigrants
understood what the long wait meant.
When the truth dawned upon them
their anger know tie bounds.

WASHINGTON , March 20 , 1881. Al
the evening papers last evening made
n positive assertion , supposed ( o bo
founded on the assertion of General
Grant , that the president a few days
ngo tendered the position of secretary
of the navy to W. E. Chandler
Chandler accepted the appointment
previous to leaving for Fortress Mon-
TOO , where ho now is. It is probahlo
that Chandler and Senator Teller's '
names for thp navy and interior departments
partments respectively will bo seat to
the sotiato on Tuesday. It is also an
nounced that Senator Teller has noti
fied the president of his acceptance of
the proffered port folio of the interior
The house committee on public
buildings will recommend the sale of
the site of the old Now York post-
oflice to the highest bidder.
All vacancies have boon filled in the
postoflico and interior departments ,
and no appointments will bo made un
til the next fiscal year.
A prominent army ofilcor thinks
there is not much foundation for the
report of the proposed retirement of
McDowell and the promotion of "Pope
or McKonzio. If General Sherman
was hero he would urge the
promotion of Generals Cook or Terry.
Extensive preparations are being
made for President Arthur's first
public reception on Tuesday. Grant
and Mrs. Grant will bo present. The
decorations of lost week's dinner re
main and will be augumonted to the

A SHOWER OF ROOKS.
A Phenomenon Which la Witnessed
About Once in a Century ,
All night Saturday night the clouds
lowered about this city , and the sky
wus illuminated by vivid and'contin
uous flashes of lightning. Although
a storm of rain seemed imminent
none came , the salvos of hcavon'
artillery coasadr and the fiorry glare
on the clouds wasdimmed by daylight-
About noon yesterday the distur
bance of the elements was renewed ,
and shortly before 1 o'clock a gen
uine , pelting Apiil shower began ,
which lasted during the afternoon ,
It was just at the beginning of this-
storm that the phenomenon alluded
to above was noticed. There was
ecarcoly a breath of wind , but the
air was chilly as if a hail storm woa
coming. Several pedestrian * on >
Farnam street , among , them
a BHE reporter took shelter - ;
tor in the door and hallway * along
the various blocks to avoid a drench- , ,
ing. Ono of these parties , who hod |
paodiotcd hail suddenly exclaimed , 4
"Thoro it comes , " aa a ring as if a
Hailstone woa heard on the pavement.
On looking , ho wovor , nothing like hail
was soon. Another ring waa _ hoard
and another and suddenly it' wan
noticed that email dark objects- were
falling. A rush was made for ono of
these and it was found to bo asmootlij.

scooped up in graVel boda. Spvorah
of the party began securing specimens-
and soon a handful was gathered.
The rooks WDro all small , the largest
not over three eighths of an inch in
diameter , and'varied from yellowish-
white to dark slate color. Hod thoro-
been any wind it might have been
thought that the pebbles caine

under the circumstances that was im
possible. They , with the rain drops , .

This recalls the old stories of the
ihowor of "flesh and blood" in Ken
tucky and of frogs , insects , fishes and
eels elsewhere , alUpf which have been
scientifically explained. It is proba
ble that a strong wind picked the
jtoncs off of some gravel bank and
that they were carried along by a-
jurrent in the air until they reached
this locality where they were dropped. .

COAT THIEF CORKAI.ED.
ExcltlnR Chaao and Recovery of a.
A man boldly entered the Occi-
lental hotel on Saturday night , and , ,
uribh all the coolness possible , walked i
to the raok where a number of over-

in hour or BO another man came in ,
md almost immediately discovered'
, ho absence of the overcoat , which bo-
onged to him. An examination of

A casual aearch Saturday evening
'ailed to discover the thief Yostor-

Mr. W. Honsting , who is a gentleman
to locate in

luainess , started out to inform th
police officials. As ho turned from
10th' street into Farnam street ho es
pied a man standing in front of the
pawnbroker's establishment , near llth
itreot , with an overcoat on his arm
md evidently waiting for the store to
3pon. MrHonsting quickened his 4 _
pace toward the man , who observed i
the movement and hurriedly started
around the corner. This convinced *
Honsting that ho had the right man
and ho gave chase. There was a sharp.
run for about two blocks , when the
pursuer overhauled the thief and in
duced him to como to a halt by the
moral aunsion of a cocked six-shooter.
The stolen property waa. quickly de
livered up , and the thief would have
boon given info the hands of an oflicor
if one had boon in sight. Honsting
put un.hia revolver , oni at that the

fractured , but an examination proved
that it waa nothin iuoro than a scalp ,

in no danger whatever.
It ia believed that O'Leary had

ho slipped and fell into thp collar ,
