The Savannah Daily Herald. giTIRDAT, ACGCIT 1», 1885. FROM OUR EVEMXG EDITION OF YESTERDAY. Ia OCA Ia MATTERS. A|Suddzn Death.—Las; evening Mrs. Manian, aged Shears, residing at the Southwest corner of Sew Houston A Bull streets, south of the Parade Square, sent to a neighbor and obtained a pint of whiskey. This morning the Post Guard discovering tl*e house closed and Mrs. Manian not about, as was her usual custom, entered the house and found her lying dead in her bed. Mrs. Manian, it Is supposed, died from apoplexy. Fob Augusta.—This morning the Steamers Helen and Gen. Shepley departed for Augusta. The Plague of Locusts—Singu lar Scenes in Jaffa. A letter dated at Jaffa (Palestine) June 20, describes a visitation of locusts as follows: In the month of April fast we observed twice large dark clouds, resembling smoke, moving to and fro as if swayed by the wind. One morniDg these clouds "came down and proved to be locusts, so great in number that the whole land was covered with them. The grain at that time was full in ear and nearly ripe, but the locusts did not touch it or any other vegetation. Soon after, how ever, it was observed that they buried them selves in the soil and there deposited their innumerable eggs. The Arabs and peasants saw the approaching mischief, and went through the land in thousands digging for these eggs; they succeeded to a certain de gree, and destroyed incredible numbers with water and fire, but all their efforts had very little effect. About the ipiddle of May small black crea tures, at a distance resembling large ants, were observed accumulating in large heaps throughout the country, and a few days af ter they had been thus seen they began to leap, and manifested the coming calamity aud invasion of the fearful army, as describ ed so emphatically in Joel ii. The people now began to sweep them together aud bury gr burn item in ditches dug tor the purpose. But ail to little or no effect, and as they grew a little larger the extent of their multitude began to be seen, and the coming catastrophe could not be mistake!). The roads were cover ed w ith ibem.aH marching in regular linesdike armies of soldiers, with their lenders in frout, aDd all the opposition of man to arrest their progress was in vain. They first consumed the plantations around RamlVh, Lydda and ail the smaller villages near them, and then entering the towns and villages consumed the victuals. Ac. in the market and streets, by degrees forcing them selves into the houses and covering the walls outside as well as inside. It seems that everything which is moistened by their saliva is poisoned, for the cattle that feed on the remnants which are left all die. I myself saw fifty oxen dead in the village of Delta, Dag gon and Zaflarish that had fed on the rem nant of durrah (Indian corn) left by the lo custs, and the night before last twenty more died from the same cause. About two weeks ago they were seen to a fearful extent all round Jaffa, but still with out wings- The town for several days ap peared forsaken, all shops were shut, all business suspended. Almost all tbe inhabit ants bad gone out to destroy and drive away the invadißg army; thev made tremendous ditches, and buried ana burned countless myriads, but, as before, all in vaiu, for the more ‘.hey destroyed the more seemed to arise from hiding places, and as they grew in size so they seemed to grow in multitude, niad toward the east from here they covered tbe ground lor miles and miles to a height of several Inches. As their wings are still too small to enable them to fly aud to visit the several hundred gardens within the cultivat ed part of the district of Jaffa, they have hitherto confined their destructions to the outer gardens, of which about fifty have been completely laid waste, eveiy green leaf, vegetable, tree, and even the bark of young trees, devoured, and these beautiful gardens look like a birch tree forest in winter. Our garden was one of tile first attacked. For several days wo saw the destructive host Advancing ; all our farm servants, ns well ns several hired laborers, were employed to keep them off, todrive them away, or bury tbem, but we found them as Joel describes them, chap ii., ver. 7. “They shall not break their ranks.’ Who can doubt the Word of God when we have these cvideuces before our eyes? True, our men broke their ranks for a moment, but no sooner had they passed the men than they closed again, and marched forward through hedges and ditch es, as if united by some mysterious power, causing them to open before man, and to close again as soon as they had passed him. On the 14th instant they torced their way in to the garden, defying all human efforts to prevent them, and in less than a day the whole garden, to the extent of eight acres, was covered with them, and tbe trees, to the number of three thousaud, as well as every other green leaf, with the exception of the palm trees and tiie prickly pear hedges, were stripped. Whether eating or drinking, reading or writing, or lying awake in bed (for it is im possible to sleep) one hears their noise from without, like the noise of armed hosts or of the running of many waters, aud within they keep dropping on and about you. At meals I am kept busy driving them away ; while I drive haif a dozen away from the bread as many will jump into tbe sugar basin, or even into my cup of tea, &e., and wheu un dressing they leap out ot our very clothes without our having known that they were there. News has just readied us from Nablous; the olive trees in those mountain have all been stripped, and near tbe river Oudge the soil Vs so thickly covered with these crea tures that many of the animals led there to drink refuse to'pass on." Another letter of a later daterfays that "They are in nowise deereasiug, rather the opposite. Every native inhabitant has been ordered by government to bring fifteen pound weight of locusts daily, and those who do not are find XI sterling each time." . Hr. Showman's Remarks.—' This gentle man is the African anaconda; he has stripes extending from his cars to the end of his tail- that hand organ there. This snake being used to the hot sands of his native land it is never too hot for him; in cold weather he has to be done up in red flannel to keep warm; he is the most wonderful snake in the world, and the only one ot the kind on this or any other continent; Change the tunc on that hand-organ ; this snake feeds on chick-1 ens and other wild animals, and eats his four meals a day with impunity or with the other snake; be can live in the water as well as on land, was brought to this country in the Mayflower, in 1776, and is consequently “an old bird,"as the saying is; the snake gentle men, is a wonderful animal, and is only ap preciated when seen! “This ’ere, gents, is the rhinocerious, or great Juggernaut of the Hindoo Island!; he is from the classic land spoken of by Afri ca’s favorite poet, Horace Greeley, where the States —and Afric’s sons shall flee into the mountains of Hepsidam, where the lion roar etta and the wbangdoodle mourueth for her first-born, ah!

Grand Scheme of Southern Smigra tion to Mexico. Object of General Breckinridge’s Visit to France. (Correspondence of the Sew York Sunday Mercury.) That the miserable attempt of Foreign Powers to set up a monarchy at <mr doors is not to go without American aid, alasis too mournfully revealed by tbe following facts Our readers will be astounded ami angered at what they learn from the subjoined paragraphs, but tbe tacts are part and parcel of contemporaneous history, and gladly as we would suppress them, must be told : This country has gi veu birth to few such men as ex- Vice-President John C. Breckeuridge, and that to one, perhaps, who united the Ume originality, comprehension of intellect with a spirit as'daring aud as bold. That ex ception' is Aaron Burr. It is not strange, then that men cast in the same mould should pursue a like career. These seems indeed to be a similarity in their fortunes, and thus far the living man has trod in the same path as tbe dead Both of these men were of dis tinguished family, aud were alike affable persuasive, influential, bold, and enterprising. If they were unscrupulous, they scorned all danger and knew no tear. Both, inj;keir time were iawvers, statesmen, and warriors, am! Vice-Presidents of tbe United States—aud both attempted to break up their govern ment. Both failed. Burr's great project, which looked to a vice-royalty in Mexico, ended iu his financial ruin, and after his trial he became an exile. He was a bankrupt iu honor as well as iu foitune, but his spirit was unconquered and unconquerable. Breckenridge seems to be his prototype. Burr went to Europe and en deavored to enlist the great Napoleon in his Mexico-project, but that sagacious monarch declined to entertain his proposition, ouly because all Europe was baDded against him; and so Burr's Mexicun empire fell through. Now, John C. Breckinridge has gone to France to present to another Napoleon a scheme iu many respects identical with that of Burr. In other words, he proposes to en list soldiers aud emigrate to the Empire of Maximilian 1 It has hitherto been announced that Gen eral Breckinridge sailed from Havana tor Europe. We ate Dowable to say that this was in pursuance of a plan agreed on in Havana, and that bis mission is to secure the indorse ment of bis scheme by the Emperor Napo leon. The emigration is intended to embrace all classes, including the aged and prudent planter, as well as the stalwart and daring youth of Kentucky and the South, whose long service in the army Lave unfitted them for the quiet and peaceable pursuits of life. Thus, while the emigration will be bona fide, the result will be to carry thousands of Con federate soldiers into the army of Maximil lian. These will, of course, be under the* command of General Breckeuridge. Several of his prominent military friends in the West are only awaiting intelligence to execute his orders. Iu the meantime, the uncertainty ot labor, and other troubles in tbe Southern States, are preparing large bodies of their people for precisely such au enterprise. Such is the plan originated by General Breckenridge, and it Is a feasible one. He was very popular in the South, and just tbe leader to carry this through successfully.— Always gentle and courteous, but brave even to rashness, he won the plaudits of the peo ple and the hearts of bis soldiers. Wlieuever lie raises his standard again, thousands will flock to him and follow his fortunes. Tire DEDUCTION. Thus the Mexican imbroglio seems com plete. The culmination of European intrigue and domestic perfidy seems to be at hand.— The great Republic is to be forced into con clusions for the safety of Republican institu tions on this continent and the rescue of a weaker sister State. For half a century money, diplomacy, aud force have been alternatively brought to bear to check our advances and erect a monarchy in our path of republican empire. Provideuce extri cates us from domestic turmoil just in time to catch the foe napping at our gates. We fiua him “in flagrante delicta” with the blood of his victims on his bauds and the dagger raised to strike ourselves. Who shall repine it) un heeding the remonstrance and the wrath of this great people, the aggressor should the defie his fate, aud who, should case arise, will not join iu the cry re-echoing irom the St. .jawrente to the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, "Down with the Empire! Long live the Republic!" Discovery of a Temple of Juno at Pom pie—Mention was lately made of the dis covery at Pompii of a temple of Juuo, with more than three hundred skeletous. Those remains, which crumbled to dust by degrees as they were brought to light, were those of women and children who hud been buried beneath the burning ashes thrown out by the volcano nt the moment in which a sacrifice was being offered up in tbe temple to the Queen of the Gods, no doubt to implore her to avert tbe terrible calamity which menaced the city." To the arm of one of those skele tons, which, from the rich jewels with which it was covered, is supposed to have been that of the high priestess, was still attached, Ijy a goid ring, a censer of the same metal filled with calcined perfumes.— This vessel is of the lortn of those now used in the ceremonies of Catholic churches, aud is of beautiful workmanship and inlaid with precious stoues. The statue of the goddess is one of the most magnificent relics yet found in that city ; its eyes are of enamel, and on the neck and arms, as well as at the ankles, are jewels and bracelets of precious stones of the most exquisite finish aud ele gance of form. The peacock placed at her side is almost entirely composed of precious stones. The tripod "before the altar is, like the reuser, held by the high priestess, magnifi cently worked gold. The temple also eou taiued lamps, artistically chased, of bronze, bronze, iron, silver and gold; brauches of foliage, vine stems, interspersed with flowers and fruit of the most beautilul form. The space around tbe alter is paved with splendid mosaics in excellent preserva tion, aud tbe rest of the temple is inlaid with small triangular blocks of white and purple agate. The spot on which the sacrifices were made is alone paved with marble. All the instruments used ou the occasion were still lying on a bronze table, aud the sacred vases were filled with a redish matter which is supposed to have been blood. Haalth of New York. —The very unclean conditon of the city of New York having excited the fears of the community, tließeg i istiar of statistics makes a statement by which it appears that the number of deaths for the months of June and July in 1864 were 71G ; for 1865, 907, on which the Trib une remarks: ‘lt is a singular fact that the city is as ~ ’’J BBu ls i for if any place under the spnrt tv ,f“ ever recel ved encouragement to , 118 cohorts of death in the shape verof aii*’, s , maU 'P 01 ’ yellow-fever aud fe mno-nifif of hercolors Bnd kiudS) it ia this foland" 1, C ' rly aud abominable neglected The increased mortality for 1865 is owing to the prevalaace of Cholera lufantum, the eases reported standing at 359 for June and July of 1801, and 591 for the corresponding period this year. • Tuk Indians. —By statements from the In dian Bureau of the Department of the Inte rior, it appears that the total number of In dians within the limits of the United States territories is 314,622. The larger tribes are as follows: Choctaws, 17,000; Cberokees 19,730; Creeks, 25,000; Sioux, 27,423. The superintendents of Inaian affairs and Indian agents have been directed to suspend the payment ol annuities during hostilities, and are also cautioned not to furnish informa tion to the public relative to the Indian* Camus and Itwkt. Tbe Aw York News thus explains the different descriptions of United States stocks: V. ■ Very many people are riot' familiar with the diflerent forms of securities of the United States government Lsued since the com ! mencemeut of the war. They haye been introduced to the people of the, country un der “taking" names, which of themselves form au addition to our vocabulary not found iu tbe standard dictionaries, and par ticularly obscure to tbosc Southern who have not bad the desire nor the oppor tunity to cousult Northern papers for the four years past. The most popular " catch , word' for any of these different loans was j the happy inspiration of our present Chief | Justice and ex-Secretary of the Treasury, ! and tbe result was the “ seven-tbirtyt' loan, I of which we have of late heard so much ; I that is, a loan bearing interest at the rate !of seven and thirty-oue-hundredtbs per I cent, per year, and written 7 30. The | charm of this novel rate of interest for money was iu the ease of computing the interest, a motive which excited con siderable amusement abroad. For fifty dollars the interest amounts to just one cent, per day; for one thousand dollars, twenty cent* per day; five thousaud dollars, one dollar i>er day, etc. The amount of these loans now outstanding is eight hundred and thirty millions, and no more are authorized until the next session‘of Congress. They are payable in three years from the date of their issue, interest payable every three months in greenbacks. The ••five-twenty" and ‘len lorty” phthises, which came into use soon after, weie designations for bonds to bear In terest in gold at the rate ot six per cent, tor tlie first and five per cent for the second class. The five-twenties are to !>e redeemed in five years, oral the pleasure of the Government, not under twenty years from May first, 1802, or November first,- 1804, the date of the old and new issues, as they are called. The amount outstanding is over six buudred mil lions. The "tcn-Forties” are likewise re deemable in either ten or forty years as tiie Government may choose, andbear interest at five per cent, in gold. The amount bonds outstanding is a trifle under two bun died millions. The one year eertificates ure also another kind of new expedient adopted by the department since the war ; being a note at interest payable one year from date. These latter are no more than certificates that the department owes so much ; yet they have been largely used of late, and are sold at about three per ceut. discount for cash. The probabilities are that they will be so largely issued before Congress meets again that the discount will be much more than it is now. Pkayer fob Those in Authority.- —Bishop Wilmer, of Alabama, has issued a letter to the clergy iu his diocese, informing them that “ the lapse of the Confederate govern ment requires, of necessity, the omission of the ‘ prayer for the President of the Confed- States and all iu civil authority,'but the immediate substitution of another form of prayer does not follow of necessity." To pray for all in authority is a duty, but a reli gious and not a a political one, which civil or military power has no right to enforce.— The Church must be left free in this matter. Tiie Church in this country has established a form of prayer tor the President and all in civil authority, and tiie Church desires for that authority prosperity and long continu ance ; but no one can be expected to desire a long continuance of military rule, and therefore the Bishop says the prayer is alto gether inappropriate and inapplicable to the present condition of things, when no civil authority exists in tiie exercise of its func tions. A government founded upon force may be prayed for, but not its continuance. The Bishop's conclusion and direction is, that “ when civil authority shall be restored iu the Slate of Alabama, the clergy shall use the form entitled ‘ a prayer for the President ot the United States and all in civil authority,’ as it stands iu the book of Common Prayer." Meantime, obedience to "the yiowers that be" in temporal matters is the duty of clergy and laity. Population or New York, —A census of the State ol New York is now in progress, and the returns of New York city show that its population is 1,003,250; an increase of 180,581 since 1800. The total valuation ot property iu the city is §(>08,784,355, Real estate increased $s 1C,035,890, while personal estate nominally fell off Slit,ooo,ooo, owiug largely to the fact that tile government bonds are non-taxabie. It. is estimated that tiie aggregate population of the State is 4,350,- 000. Intolligeuoe. I’ORT OK SAVANNAH. Arrived* Friday, August 11,1865.
