H [ Special Telegram to the HIKI : The last voyage of the steamer America seems to have been an eventful ono. The following Is the story as given by the log : The America left Queenstown Thursday morning n week ao with fair weather , but within two hours after loivlng the harbor a storm came up whloh the oftlcors of the ship describe as the most violent that the vessel over passed through. Captain Hraco went to the bndgo at the llrst sign of bul weather and remained there for forty- two hours , exposed not only to the wind and rnln but to the waves which , during Thurs day night , was clear over the bridge , tilltne the life boits with water and clearing every tiling from the decks that a foico of ten fet't of water could move. In the midst of the storm the stoker , who had narrowly escaped being hurled into thu lire by the pitching of the vessel , deserted Ids post and rushed up on deck with the avowed intention of jumpIng - Ing overboard rather than risk again the danger ot his work. Ho was forced bacK to the furnace room , but his fright soon devel oped Into Insinlty , and he was found crouch ing between the two furnaces in abject ter ror , nwaltlug ntiothur opportunity to commit suicide. Ho vvns placed in irons. At the same timeamnlc was created in the steerage - ago bynn alarm of "lire , " and several hun dred men and vv onion lushed to the hatches endeavoring to cet to the boats. Dense vol umes of what seemed to be smoke thiough- out the ship caused alarm nnd the olllceis in charge had a desperate lisrht for some time to control tlio frightened steerage pa MMieers. Investigation snowed that the "sinoki ) ' " was merely steim caused by some water having washed over the hot steam pipes , but airaln flighthad developed Into a case of Insanity , and ono ot tlio steerage pa semersnn Encllshinnn who had deserted his family and his position on an Kn-jlish imllcn force , now attacked the stewards with araxorand threatened to kill nny ono who tried to prevent his jumping overboard. He was placed under watcli after being dis armed , and became quieter after thu stoim had subsided. The cook was severely In jured during the storm by being thrown across the kitchen withn knifu in lit : hand , cutting nis head. About noon on Saturday Captain Grace left the bridge , the ship being entirely out of danger , but his forty-two hours'exposure without sleep ami the nerv ous strain caused bjtht ) clnpter ot incidents icfeirod to was too much forliim. Five min utes after coming ol ! duty the leactlou de veloped into a congestive chill , nnd at 11-33 . he died. His daughter was with him. & n Saturday morning the insane Englishman succeeded iu4 > reaking away from his guards In the steeraire , and amid great excitement among the men , women and children who witnessed the strmrsrle , he leaped oveiboard and wns drowned. " On Monday a baby died in tno steerage nnd It was buried at sea the next morning. The deatli of Captain Grace caused deep grlet among the cabin p.isson- gets , nnd nt n genomt meeting in the saloon appropriate resolutions were adopted by them. SALVATIONISTS SUSTAINED.

The action ol the Knights ot Labor atj Klchmoiul , In inak Ing a plea for mercy In bphalfo of the con victed anarchists at Chicago , has caused con sideruble comment among the conservative labor leaders of this city. . There were othei measures adopted and recommended af tin Ulchmond convention which are quietly bin nevertheless severely criticized by member of the order In PHUburg. Thomas A. Ann strong says : "The plea lu behalf of the an nrchists Is very much out of place. It Is i disgrace to the order and Is not In accord vvltl the sentiments of a majority of the members We have nothing In common with anarchists no more than we have with murderers , am the line should be clearly drawn. The nn arotusts of the country will construe tin net ion of the Klchmond convention to mcai that the knights are Inclined to sympathize with them. It demonstrated one thing , thi Homo clue element which ruled the 8 onven tlon and which passed the resolution jester day is more or less In sympathy with the an nrchistic element. This faction will not tx allowed to prostitute the noble purposes o : the order. Reports from the Richmond con- yentlon showed that there was war in tin ranks , and it will continue until semi wrongs are righted.

It is quite iintnrul as the two stand together for Hit- spectator to "size them up , " nnd frequent coiumont about tha "peculiar race' ' In which these two men nro engaged arc heard on uv ery side. The con test Is ti trntornai one , but the brothers nru foi that rcnson none the le s In earnest. Each feels that ho is smicthliigiiiore than an [ ndlvldiiil in the canvass ; that he Is tlio representative of the thousands of voters who people this state ; that ho Is the advocate of principles which his constituents mini- tnin ; that tlio triumnh of the principles of which ho Is the exponent , and the success of thopaity v\hlcU has put him forward as Its champion , nit dupeiid upon htm. What else but the weight of this responsibility and n determination to succeed could hnvo kept Alt Taylor In tlio canvass dav after day. Ills physicians have advised him to rest his throat has troubled him for two months yet In spite of the admonition ot doctors nnd ftiundsnnd throat troubles ho lias stood on the pint f 01 m day after day for nearly four moiuhs and advocated the cause of repub licanism. Ilotli candidates were escorted , about 1 o'clock , to the court hoUH1. Alt's carriage vv as drawn by four deon bay and nob's by four \\hlte horses , A joint procession con sisting ot M\eral bundled men lolloped them , headed by bias bands. The lepubll- cans woio led loses and the democrats white roses or robots as Indicating their sjuipatliy in this "A ar of the loses , " as the ii ce has been termed bj Uob Taj lor , the democratic candidate. This being the closing ot thu cauipaien , greater Interest than nsuil vvns taken in this mooting. Alf , the re publican candidate , was the first to speak. Ho lauded the honesty of purpose of the brave confederates who for 516 ? a mouth In confederate money took their lives in their hands .nut bled fioiu shoeless feet for a lost cause , still believing their pilnelples were right. He arraigned tne leaders of tlio demo cratic party foi their many blunders , but not the masses , statin , : that the democratic party reptesented dead Issues , while the ictmbli- can uaity eamo Into power icpresuntlnt : free thought , free speech , and protection to honest labor. While the democratic patty of Ten nessee fa voted tlit * convict leise nnd scr nt systems , tha republican pirty was opposed to tho-o iniquities , and if ho was elected gov ernor lie would hnvo those evils abolished at .anv cost. Hocontlnued : Much has been said ot the nttltudo which the republican party sustains to the question of submitting a prohibitory amendment to thepcoDta. In the bill of rights which was reserved to'the people when the constitution was framed , the power of amending the con stitution Is expressly specinod , and they should not be robbed ot that rlcht I gc even further than tne convention did when it announced itself in iavor of submitting the question to the people for a vote , and say that the people have tfie right to vote on nny and nil questions which nffeet their rlehts as citizens of n Rteat government. The icpublican party favors the education of the masses at the public expense. It has placed itself so upon the recoul by Its advocacy of the policy embodied in what is known its the Ulalr educational bill. This was xiasscd in the republican senate and > oi would have supposed from the piofesslons of friendship to the people whien the demo- ci , its have made that it would have been passed in the house , where they have a ma- joiityof at least seventj-hvo , in live minutes , as it could have been. 'Ihere are in Ten nessee lO'i.OOO voter- , who were so nnfoitu- nato in tticir youth a- > not to enjoy tin sweets of mental cultivation , and cannot lead or write their own names. There arc in the state 700,000 childieu within the school nee , 400,000 of whom cannot read 01 write their own names. Place them inline. their hands toncliinc each other , nnd they would form a line 400 miles long , a line IOC miles gicalcr in length than could be termed of those who can read and write their own names. Hob Tn > lor was then Introduced. His speech was an arritrnment of the republlcm partv , together with the hackneyed jokes w Itn which ho has rojaled his audiences dur ing this canvass as he did with the luldle in his race for congress tour > ears ago. Jit hung mound the neck of the republican party the following millstones , which were to drag the party down to the bottom of the sea. The contraction ofan immense debt ; thu destruction of the navy : the jostorinK ot monopolies ; the Credit .Mo bller case ; the star-route trauds ; the Indian rings ; a henvy war taxation twenty years after the war ; voting aw ay five times as initcli for educational puiposes as would be ob tained by the provisions of the Ulalr bill.

In answer to Hub's Uncle itoiiius story ol the inbblt In the bottom of the well , who per suaded the opossum to lump In the other bucket and como down becatiso there vvaa good tisnlng there , and theieby drew the rab bit to the top Alf said the ruse was charao terhtic of the democratic paity , which coulc not bpeak without Ij ing. Alt said if the re publican pirty brought bavonets heto It with drew them also. lie said the icjuiblii.u pirty would have punished the Star i outer : if theio had not been eleven demociats 01 thu jury Hob's only lejolnder was a joke about tin man cauzht In a hollow tieo who , upon n * tlcctlon that he voted the republican ticket li IhSI , dropped out the little hole where ho hat pushed his linger thiough.

On Mondiy night a spark from an engine on the Hew Jeisey Southern railroad started a contlagiation that has Inco been sweeping through nmu > thousand acres of land In Atlantic and Hurllngton counties , and doing Incalculable damage to the trrow Ing trees nnd cranberry boas.

It then swerved nrounu as the wind changed and moved In a northerly direction toward the extensive bo s of Josepn Hlndimin. A lire brigade was sent to the icene , and another contingent kept back to guard the buildings nnd storehouses from a tire In the rear. The long drought hail dried up the sipnngs-and water-courses , nnd tho' ground ivas as dry ns tinder.
