ind in East St. Lnuis , is "practically mi-
ihaiiged. Bowman dyke still stantU the
iressuio and that mid ether weak points
ro constantly being ntiTiigtlioncd.
I'hrcats wcro made last night to cut what
s known as the Madison county dyke ,
vhich is it high onibaiiknumt running
ostwardly from the river a milo and n
inlf , about 'midway between Ihooklyn
, nd Venice , but after a long and
, ngrywrangle between n number
if inhabitants of the former place and
, ml some people living north of the dyke ,
t wosj decided nothing should bo done ,
a the cutting of the dyke would let more
rater into Brooklyn , and inundate that
> .irt of the town not now submerged ,
i'ho people were very determined , and
guarded all night with shot guns and
ther weapons.
A largo volume of water is still flowing
, hrotigh the breaks made yesterday in the
Chicago & Acton and ether railroad tracks
and is spreading out and covering more
of the bottom toward the blutls find
along the Vand lia railroad , but no dam
age to the latter is yet reported. Re
ports from points along the Missouri
rafy considerably. At. some places the
water is still rising , while at others it has
fallen from five inches to two foot. It ii
safe to say , hovovor , that there is con
siderable more water to como down from
this side 'of St. Joseph , and the rise
here may bo a foot higher.
A dispatch from Bismarck says _ the
Yellowstone river is already a high as
laet year and the Missouri is rising at that
point. Telegrams from ether places high
up the Missouri indiqato that the _ Usual
Juno rise has commenced , and iiuall
likelillOod some part of it will reach hero
before the present flood recedes to Inny
great extent. Should this bo the case ,
the situation will become alarming , and
the destruction of property along both
upper and lower rivers will bo appalling.
The river rose another throe inches to
day and still coming up slowly. No par
ticular change in the situation on this
side of the river. The whole of the lovco
is now submerged and in the lowest
places the first floors of stores are flooded
from a few inches to a couple of foot
deep. Business in houses von , the -river

A little excitement was occasioned in
East St. Louis this afternoon by the
threatened overflow of the Cairo Short
Line track by backwater , blli the dam of
earth find 'sand-bags liastily thrown up
on the water side of the track chocked
the flow of water and averted the danger.
The Chicago and Alton , in connection
with the St. Louis and Wabash , are driv
ing piles in the break in their track
above Venice , and it is expected they
will liavo a good trestle across the gup by
Wednesday , and their trains bo runniii"
again. A largo number of farmers and
land ow nors on the American bottom and
residents of Venice and other towns be
tween East St. Louis and Mitchell , hold
a mooting at Venice this afternoon , and
after exchanging views on the situation ,
adopted the following :
Jtcsolvcd , That inasmuch as many of
our people have boon sullerors by floods
for the past three years , and the present
general overflow has rendered destitute a
largo number of people who , without as
sistance , will bo unable to put in crops
during the coming year , wo doom it
our duty to appeal to all who are able to
assist those thus situated ; that n descrip
tion of the misery entailed upon our sec
tion of the country would seem like ex
aggeration , so fearful in its nature is the
truth , and that it will bo at least thirteen
months before another crop will bo raised
and in the meantime destitution in all its
forms confronts the sufferers. In view
of these facts , wo fool justified in appeal
ing for assistance , and-roquost that all
contributions bo sent to Henry Robin
son , president of the board of trustees of
Venice , 111. , for distribution.
A largo number of the sufferers re
ferred to in this resolution are either
camped in tents on ridges , surrounded
by water , or are in the open air on the
bluffs beyond. Many are also housed in
box cars on railroad tracks , and n good
many of them will bo obliged to bo fod.
Their crops are totally destroyed , and
they are destitute of money or any of the
necessaries of life.
The national stock yards of East St.
Louis are > in no danger of being flooded ,
an has boon reported. They can easily
stand a rise of three foot and it would
require four foot to stop business. The
Union yards on this side of the river are
also well protected and in no danger.
The situation in East Carondolot and
Cahokia glows worse daily. The water
covers that whole section of country and
some flooded out families ) are beginning
to suffer. Their wants will probably bo
supplied to-morrow. The railroads which
have lost their trucks have abandoned
the ferrying system between hojo and
Alton and have arranged with the Van-
dalia road to run their pusongor : trains.
The Indianapolis and St. Louis will send
their trains to Efliugliani and thence to
The Wabash will use the Vandalia to
Allamont where it will take its own trackt
and the Chicago & Alton and 0. , B. &
Q. will run to Smithlwro wlieru they will
connect with their own roads. All other
castoni lines are using their own tracks ,
and all western roads are getting trains
through in pretty good shape. The Van-
drdia track about which
, there was eomo
apprehension yesterday , is still two feet
above the water and can readily be made
to resist four or five feet.
ALTON , Juno 25. The magnitude of
Mio disaster from the floods below this
city is just beginning to ber disclosed.
The break of the dyke below this city has
caused destruction covering a wide area.
The Suy Carte bottoms nro ruined for the
year. Thousands1 of families , between ,
Louisiana and Crofton nro homeless and
llooing before the floods. Stock to the
number , of six thousand head is already

dco , of the United States circuit court ,
handed down a decree in the case of New
Orleans vs. John A. Norris ot. al. , by
which the city recovers 4 , 1(44 shares of
stock in the water works company , which
have boon seized and sold by various
parties , who are now ordered to restore
the stock to the
city. The supreme
court of the United States decided the
stock was held in trust by the city and
not liable to seizure and salo. Fourteen
judgment creditors , stock dealers and
brokers , who sold and purchased stock
are ordered to restore the bonds to the
city , which , together with the dividends
since 1870 , amounts to nearly half a
half million dollars.

GAIVKHTON , Tex , , Juno 25 It now
transpires that the private advices of the
terrible mortality at Vera Cruis from yel
low fever wore received in Galveston by
cable. The best information gleaned
from an entirely reliable party in con
stant tclcgiaplno communication with
Vera Cru/fis to the effect that the first
and worst ropoit of Saturday uro
correct. Further communication ' from
Galveston quatantino stations held
that the ship Haytion , recently from
Veni Cruz , wd no communication with
any vessels in that port , besides lighters.
This takes away the foundation from the
reports contradicting the existence of the
plague , besides the Ifaytion's oflicors. for
quarantine reasons , it is said , would bo
directly interested in suppressing news of >
such an alarming nature.

G ALVE TON , Juno. 15 , The subject of
Major Wasion's losses is still a general
topic of conversation. Wasson divulged
the names of all the gentlemen who had
played cards with him in Galveston , and
it is alleged that Chief Paymaster Torril
addressed a communication to each ono ,
threatening exposure unless their win
nings were returned. Ono gentleman ,
who had only won about $200 , was in
duced to give up 81,000 for fear of his
[ laying cards becoming known to the
[ lublic. Some few refused to give back
my that they had won , and others claim
ed that they wcro losers iii the game.
However , the necessary amount of nionov
was raised , but there is a general con
demnation of the method used to induce
the gentlemen to make good Wasson'a
deficit. It now appears that most of the
games were playou in Wassail's room , and
several of the gentlemen who took part
went to the at his
room request , and as
none of them won a largo amount , the
opinion is expressed that Major Wasson
lost < mly a portion of the money ho was
shoit at gambling , and that the greater
pnit was spent in fast living.
