NO MAILS YET-
Railroad Officials Cannot Say When
Northern Travel Will Open.
The last northern mnil lor Savan
nah reached here Saturday. When
the Seaboard auil Roanoke reported a
washout uear Portsmouth yesterday,
the only route by which the Atlantic
Coast Line could reach New York
was obstructed. Travel from Savan
nah to New York is blockaded and
discontinued at Weldon, where the
Seaboard and Roanoke touches the
Atlantic Const Line. Between Wel
don and Richmond the) Petersburg
bridge is washed away. It was over
200 feet span, and sometime will be
consumed in rebuilding it. A num
Ircr of other washouts have occurred
between Weldon and Richmond, and
extensive washouts are reported on
the Richmond and Fredericksburg
road, between Richmond and Quanti
co. Some time will be required tc
put the line in shape. Supt. Fleming,
of the Savannah, Florida and Wes
tern railway, received the following
dispatch yesterday from Assistant
General Manager j. R. Kenly, of the
Atlantic Coast Line railway:
Wilmington, N. C., June 4,1S8!I,
To R. G. Fleming:
I have just been advised that Sea
board* and Roanoke railway is im
passible on account of high water at
Nottaway river. No serious damage
has been done ns yet, and I do not
think any will occur. I hope the in
terruption is only temporary, and
that they will be running through
within twenty-four or forty-eight
hours. We have now no connection
north of Weldon.- Our freight and
passenger department is advised,
J. It. Kenly,
Assistant Gen. Manager A. C. Line
The Savannah, Florida & Western
officials have instructed ajl the points
north of Savannah not to receive ship
ments for the north except upon con
dition that it be turned over to the
Ocean Steamship upon arrival in Sa
vannah. Considerable freight is being
shipped this way. It is inferred, from
the telegram received by Supt.. Flem
ing from Assistant General Manager
Kenly, of the Atlantic Coast Line
that the Seaboard & Roanoke railway
will be again resorted to for a route
north before the lines directly con
necting the Atlantic Coast Line with
New York are repaired and passable.
In consequence ot these washouts all
through travel has been interrupted,
and no northern mails have been re
ceived here this week.
Southern Express Agent Cooper said
yesterday that all express matter for
the north is going by the Ocean Steam
ship Company. It is likely that many
days will be required to repair the
track, so that travel can be resumed.
Souio weeks ago M. l’astcur, the
great French scientist, said that, there
was no efficacy in a mad stone, but he
probably did not expect everybody
to believe him, or, it he did, he ex
pected more than he had a right to
expect. The mad stone is still being
applied to persons bitten by animals
affected with hydrophobia. One of
the latest cases is that of an Indiana
man, who sent to Kentucky for a mad
stone, which was applied to the
wound; and at last accounts it was
said to have drawn most of the poisou
from it. The belief in the virtue of
the mad stone is strong, although it
hasn’t much to rest upon.
The losses by fire in this country in
1888 were nearly $i,000,000 less than
in 1887. For some years the average
annual loss has been about $110.-
000,000 It is stated that most
of the fires in the south last year
were attributed to incendiarism. Prob
ably this is also true with respect to
those in the north. While it may not
be true that most of the fires in this
country are of incendiary origin, it is
a fact that most of them are thought
